OUR READERS’ LETTERS ...sincere gratitude...

The committee of Empty Bowls at Long Trail School would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped to make our fourth community dinner such a huge success. As the saying goes, “it takes a village” and this is especially true of a fundraiser of this magnitude. What many people don’t realize is that Empty Bowls is not merely a one night event. Each year, five or six events are held leading up to the final dinner. Hundreds of community members attend our bowl-making events from “Cookies & Clay” to “Rock & Bowl” and many school children make bowls during their art classes — resulting in over 700 bowls being made each year. Over 30 area restaurants make and donate their delicious soups and an additional 30 local businesses sponsor us with goods,

services and financial donations. We are especially grateful to Ryan James of Smokin’ Bowls and Hub Poelmann whose catering expertise helped us to pull off the event. The result of all of this support is that each year, Empty Bowls at Long Trail School is able to make sizable donations to selected local hunger-based charities. This year, we are pleased to be able to give to Meals on Wheels, the Summer Lunch Program (an offshoot of the Emergency Needs Fund) and the Community Cupboard. This is Long Trail School’s gift to the community and we could not do it without this invaluable cooperation. — Courtney Weir Manchester, Vermont

...dine around...

On behalf of the Friends Foundation for MEMS (FFM), I would like to thank Guy Thomas, and Bob and Beth Albert, for hosting a successful Dine Around for MEMS up at Zoey’s Double Hex on Wednesday, May 12. We are proud to say we doubled the number of diners they would normally expect on a Wednesday night! Their staff was ready and able to handle it, and did a great job; there was never more than a 3minute wait to be seated, the food was great...and the restaurant was in top form as always, spotlessly clean and well-presented with fresh flowers throughout. We’d like to thank Zoey’s for donating 20% of the night’s food sales to support the education of the kids at MEMS, especially as we are 6 weeks away from the close of our campaign. They join fellow Dine Around restaurants Friendly’s, the Perfect Wife, Maxwell’s Flat Road Grill, and The Works Bakery Cafe. All have done the same for us in the past few months and we are very grateful for your efforts and donations, as well. Mark your calendars, as coming up on Wednesday, June 2, Bistro Henry will host a Dine Around, with a special $30 3-

...extensive damage...

As the volunteer board of local citizens responsible for the task of overseeing the 914-acre Equinox Preserve, we are delighted with seeing the trails used to the extent they are. From rainy mid-week mornings to frigid mid-winter afternoons, the trails are being utilized to a greater extent than ever before. Our task is to balance the recreational use of the trail system with the role of the Preserve as a natural haven for plant and animal species, some of which are unique to this region. The trails are open to skiers, snowshoers, hikers, bikers and runners. However, two trails are specifically designated off-limits to mountain bike use: the Snicket Trail and Trout Lily Trail. The layout and design of these trails

do not support mountain bike traffic. Recently the Trout Lily Trail has seen extensive damage by a small group of mountain bikers which has required extensive efforts by volunteers and staff to repair. In fact, recent repair work was intentionally vandalized to enable the bikers to again travel on this restricted trail segment. Signs hung at trail intersections, posting these trails as off-limits to bikes, have been torn down. The Equinox Preservation Trust board is reaching out to the local community to assist us in preventing this type of abuse to the trail system and Preserve in general. Please use the trails in a responsible manner and respect the rules that are in place. In this way, we all benefit from the natural treasure which is in our own backyard. Respectfully, — The Equinox Preservation Trust Rich Heilemann, President

pints were donated; I believe a new record for Manchester. Thank you to everyone involved: the donors, the volunteers and the gracious businesses. Thanks to Bagel Works, Gourmet Deli, Mrs. Muurphy’s Donuts, Price Chopper, Rachel’s, Shaw’s Supermarket, and Wilcox Ice Cream. The next Blood Drive will be held July 14 at Burr and Burton’s Rowland Center, a great air conditioned building. You can schedule an appointment by calling 1-800-843-3500. — Jessie Forrest Red Cross Coordinator, Manchester, Vermont

The families of the Hillvale, Mountain Vew, and Ways Lane areas thank the many people of Manchester who voted “No” to the spot zoning change in the High Ridge Plaza. This time we got our message across to all the people of Manchester and won with a 118 vote plurality. Our thanks also to the hundreds of people who signed our petition for reconsideration. They started the ball rolling and gave us the confidence to continue. A few people were very helpful with their support dur(Continued on page 4)

READERS’ LETTERS

Meals on Wheels

(Letters, cont.) ing our struggle. We appreciate Orland Campbell’s and Bradley Myerson’s succinct input at the many Select Board meetings and Town Meetings. They never missed the mark when getting the true facts across. We also offer our thanks to a certain “Man about town” whose advice and tireless support was so effective in helping us win. Last, but not least, we would like to thank the gentle spirit of the late “Mister Rogers” for his help in saving our neighborhood. It was Meg Cornell, RN who “resuscitated” him to help in our campaign, and it seems he did help to make it “a beautiful day in the neighborhood,” and prove that sometimes one picture can be worth more than seven hundred words of editorial opinion. Once again, our sincere and heartfelt thanks to the people who spread the word and supported us with their help and votes. It was so comforting to realize we were not alone. — Al Drasheff and the Hillvale Neighborhood Committee, Manchester, Vermont

Local Artists Celebrate 18th Annual Open Studio Weekend

Have you ever wondered why the lights were on all night at the ������������������������� painter’s studio up the street, or what exactly created that pile of sawdust outside the furniture maker’s shop? Now’s your chance to find out! Thirty-four southern Vermont artists and artisans will join with more ����������������������������������� than 270 throughout Vermont as the Vermont Crafts Council sponsors ��������������������� its eighteenth Annual Open Studio Weekend on Memorial Day weekend, May 29 - 30, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ����������������������������������� The event represents a unique opportunity to meet an exciting vari���������������������������������� ety of artists and craftspeople in their studios, some of which are only ��������������������������������������� open to the public during this weekend. Some studios will feature talks ���������������������������������������� and demonstrations, while others will have special event pricing. ������������������������������������������������ �������������������������������� In the Manchester area, a group of long-time Open Studio participants — the Artisans of Southern Vermont — are actively promoting ��������������������������� the event. Local venues range from Manchester south to Bennington, ������������������������� north to Danby, and west to Dorset, Pawlet, Rupert, and Wells; just look ���������������������������� for the yellow signs and balloons. ������������������������������� These artisans have developed a studio driving tour map designed to take you over beautiful country roads — some known only to locals — as you travel from studio to studio. It also describes “Studio Sleuth”: ��������������������������������������������������������� �������������������������������� if you collect eight signatures from the thirty listed on the map, you will �������������������������������� be eligible for a drawing to win a $170 gift certificate to the studio of ���������������������������� your choice! You can learn more about Studio Sleuth, this special tour, and the Artisans of Southern Vermont, on their blog, www.artisansvt. com. The Vermont Crafts Council created Open Studio Weekend in 1992 to increase the visibility of artists and craftspeople in Vermont, and to foster an appreciation for the creative process and the role ������������������������� that artisans play in the vitality of Vermont’s communities. In addition to the local studio tour map created by local artists, the Crafts Council publishes a free statewide map with directions to all participating studios. This guide is available at Vermont Information Centers, from individual studios ��������������������������������������������������������� and galleries, and by request. In addition to the Artisans of Southern Vermont blog, you can find more information about �������������� ������ Open Studio Weekend at www.ver�������� ������������������������������� montcrafts.com, or by calling the �������������������� ����������� ��������������� Vermont Crafts Council at 802��������������������� ������������������� 223-3380.

Open Studio Tour Memorial Weekend

The annual Vermont Open Studio Tour will be held this Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30. Local artists’ studios will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Visitors can see the artists at work and purchase pieces directly from the artist. This is a rare experience for people to actually see where artists create the art that so many of us admire. Maps which show the art tour can be found at the Chamber of Commerce and at local businesses. Bennington artists participating this year are Tony Connor, a popular watercolor landscape artist, Shelli DuBoff, known for her lovely animal portraits and Josh Primmer, a talented and much sought-after potter. ________________________________________________

Art at its Best in a 10-Mile Circle!

So where do you start your Open Studio tour? There are a number of fine artists/craftsmen right in your midst - within 10 miles either direction. In Grafton, on Route 35, check out the Hunter Gallery of Fine Art; do view Peter Jeziorski’s paintings at this stop. Do visit Conrad Delia’s chairmaking capital on Route 35 into Chester from Grafton. Conrad Delia makes fabulous Windsor chairs. Over to Route 103 in the Stone Village, visit the doll maker of Vermont — Bonnie’s Bundles Dolls, 99 original cloth dolls in a historic stone house. Over the hill onto Route 11, heading west, take a right off Route 11, Goldthwaite Road to the studio of Nick Kekic, Tsuga Studio, the finest glassblower in Vermont (the world!). For studio art you must visit watercolorists Robert Sydorowich on East Hill in Andover and Diane Bell on Route 100 in Weston. Before leaving Chester, visit Mitchell Rudman’s High Falls Furniture Company on First Avenue (from Route 103). You will enjoy all these Vermont artists — all participants in Vermont’s Annual Open Studio tour in its 18th year. You can find detailed information about the artists at the Vermont Crafts Council Web site, www. vermontcrafts.com. Follow the yellow signs and look for posters with maps attached, and maps are available at all the stops on your journey. You will not be disappointed! ________________________________________________

LTS Welcomes Two Members to Board

����

Long Trail School is pleased to announce the addition of two members to its Board of Trustees. Kathleen Colson is a past parent and former trustee. Mrs. Colson is being welcomed back to the Long Trail Board in time for graduation as the Class of 2010 has chosen her as their Commencement speaker. About this, Mrs. Colson remarked, “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to rejoin the Long Trail board as the school works toward the implementation of the International Baccalaureate, setting a new standard for academic excellence in Vermont.” In 2005 after more than 20 years working in Africa, Kathleen founded the BOMA Fund, a non-profit organization based at her home with offices in Dorset and Kenya. The BOMA Fund seeks to “break the cycle of poverty through the development of locally sustainable markets, the stimulation of creative, entrepreneurial thinking, and the training of a new generation of ethical, skilled leaders. It spearheads a grant-based training and mentoring program...that helps give the poor in Africa the resources to determine their own futures within the context of their rich traditions and heritage.” Mrs. Colson is also President of African Safari Planners. She is married to Doug and has three children, two sons and a daughter. Also joining the Board is Chris Morrow, general manager of the Northshire Bookstore, where he has worked in the family business since 1998. He has an extensive background in international outreach; having served in the Peace Corps in Thailand and as a Peace Corps trainer in Nepal. Mr. Morrow was a project assistant in Project CARE in Honduras where he evaluated and designed manuals on Agroforestry and Tree Nursery Management. He also spent some time in Lahore, Pakistan implementing a geographic information system (GIS) for Department of Education, Pakistan and the Department of Health, Syria. Morrow lives in Weston with his wife Carrie Chalmers and his two daughters, Eva (8) and Hilary (6). Long Trail is honored to welcome to our community these individuals who share the school’s passion for global issues while continuing to be actively involved at the local level.

The Summer of Dreams

Fort Salem Theater, Washington County’s Theater Home for Music, Musicals, and Cabaret, recently announced its summer Mainstage lineup, five musicals that together comprise Fort Salem’s Summer of Dreams. The Fort’s season begins with Lerner and Loewe’s classic, “Brigadoon,” about the Scottish town that wakes up once every hundred years (except in the show, when it wakes up twice). A co-production with the Rose Center Theater of Westminster, California, and starring the Rose’s Artistic Director, Tim Nelson, this “Brigadoon” will feature nine of the principal players who will take this production back to California later in the month, supplemented by local performers. “Brigadoon” runs the Luxbrush Painting Company, Inc. holiday weekend, July 2-4. Fantasy continues at Fort Salem as WRGB news anchor Jerry Gretzinger leads a close harmony quartet in “Forever Plaid,” the show in which a 50’s group, desperate to realize their musical ����������� dream, returns from the grave ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� for one final performance, the �������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� way they always wanted to do �������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� it. The songs, from “Three Coins ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������ in the Fountain” to “Love Is a ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� Many Splendored Thing,” form �������������������������������������������������������������������������������� a catalogue of easy listening, performed sometimes with reverence, sometimes with humor. It’s a funny, touching evening, ���������������������������� with a cast of top-notch profes������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� sional singer/actors. Plaid runs ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���� ����������� ����� ������� ������������� ������ ���������� ���� ��������� ������� ������ two weekends, July 9-11 and July ����������� ���� �������� ����� ���� ����������� ������� �������� ������ ������ ������� �������� 16-18. ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������� “110 in the Shade” opens at the Fort on July 24, and runs two weekends through August 1. Based on the N. Richard Nash ����������������������������������� play, “The Rainmaker,” later a film �������� ��� ������ ����� ��� ���� ���� ������������� �������� ����� ����� ��������� ����� starring Katherine Hepburn, ������ ������ ��������� ���� ����� �������� �� ���� ��������� ������� �� ���� ������� ����� ������������ ���� ������ ��� ������� ���� ����� ����� ������� ��� ����� ���� ������� “110” takes us back to an era ����������������������������������������������������������������������������������� when a single woman was called ������������������������������������������������������������������������������� an “old maid.” In the Hepburn role, Fort regular Lynne Kerr plays that single woman, bringing her warm singing voice to a �������������������� character who eventually learns ������ �������� ��������� ���� ����� �� ��������� �������� ������ ����� ��������� �������� ���� that reality sometimes contains ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� ����� ��������� ����������� ����� ����� ��������� �� ���� �������� �������� ����� ����� ������ all the makings of a dream, and ���� ������� ������������ ������ ����� ������� ��������� �� ���� �������� ������� ��������� that believing in oneself can make ������� ��������� ������ ���� ���������� ����� ������ ������ ��������� ���� �������� �� ������ the dream come true. The lyrical �������������������� score is written by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, the team responsible for “The Fantasticks” and “I Do, I Do.” The Surf City Singers, from Huntington Beach, California, ������������������������ kicked off last year’s Fort Salem ������� ������������ season with a musical revue, “100 ������������������������ ���������������������� (Continued on page 17)

(Fort Salem, cont.) Years of Broadway.” This year they arrive singing Sondheim, with a presentation of “Into the Woods,” the tale of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of the Beanstalk), and Little Red Riding Hood, several pages beyond happily ever after. As they determine that dreams aren’t always what they’re cracked up to be, they formulate new dreams and relationships based on their taste of reality beyond the fairy tales. Surf City sings in Salem for only one weekend, August 6-8. Following original musical successes with “Breakfast Epiphanies” and “Corn! The Musical,” collaborators Al Budde and Jay Kerr have created a new show about film stars whose realities were not the storybook lives of their audiences’ dreams. “Star Crossed, A Musical Tale of Tragedy and Triumph in Old Hollywood,” based on a real-life story by Kate Brex, follows a young, adopted actress who discovers her roots on the soundstages of the film musical. Singer/comedienne Laura Roth stars as a film icon, Greenwich native Andrea Green, a young performer based in Manhattan, plays the actress in search of her parents, WNYT anchor Benita Zahn plays Roth’s sycophantic biographer, and Gordon Hazzard (Scrooge from the Fort’s hit, “A Christmas Carol: A New Musical”) a detective hired to bring to light the identity of the father. “Star Crossed” will have its world premiere performances weekends, from August 1322. Fort Salem’s Summer of Dreams will fill the Mainstage for the months of July and August.

Thanking Currier Teachers The school board that runs the Currier Memorial School thanks the Currier teachers for agreeing to freeze their salaries for 2010-11 so we have a chance of passing a budget that will not reduce the staff any further. Actually, the word “freeze” does not give the teachers enough credit, because they will actually get less take-home pay than before. This will happen because the Legislature now requires higher teacher retirement contributions. Also, as health insurance premiums rise, the teachers’ 10 percent contribution will amount to more money. The teachers could have continued to insist on a roughly 2 percent salary increase on account of length of service. The only thing the teachers asked in exchange was to reduce required evening events from monthly to a total of seven. The school board thinks this is reasonable and hopes the voters in Danby and Mt. Tabor finally pass a budget that allows this good compromise. Currier already had the lowest per pupil cost in the supervisory union, and this proposal reduces it significantly more. Thanks to the teachers’ cooperation plus a reduction in the custodian’s pay, a freeze on all other employees’ pay, and switching workers’ compensation insurers, we propose to cut spending $44,975 beyond our last reduced proposal that lost by one vote in April. We propose to cut taxes even more. Projected revenue is up because the Legislature did not cut the Small Schools Grant as we thought it would. The net result is that voters in Danby and Mt. Tabor will pay $83,295 less in taxes than under the previous proposal if they vote for the budget. This amounts to a seven cent per hundred dollar rate increase for Danby, as opposed to the seventeen cent increase that was in the budget defeated on Town Meeting Day. It amounts to a three cent per hundred dollars decrease for Mt. Tabor, as opposed to a half cent increase. Details will be in a mailing to all voters in the two towns. There will also be an informational meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday June 3 at the school. Voting will be on Tuesday June 22. The teachers have done their part. Now it is up to the voters. One vote made the difference last time. Please vote! Yours sincerely, — Herbert G. Ogden 214 South End Road Mt. Tabor, Vermont 05253 hogden@vermontel.net. Chair, Union District 23 School Board

FROM MY CORNER

�������������������������� �������������������������

— by Susan J. Coons ...words and phrases... A few of the phrases that stuck in my mind from the Watergate hearings and have become a part of our American vocabulary are “What did you know and when did you know it;” “At what point in time...?” and “...at that point in time...” Of course, there was always the familiar and over-used “I don’t recall...” The defendants didn’t take the fifth, they just didn’t “recall” the answers to certain questions that would perhaps have lead to the dis���������������������������������������������������������� covery of their guilt in the whole affair. ���� ����� ������ ����� ������ ���� ������� ������� ��� ���� ����� People don’t tell lies any more. They “misspeak.” I don’t know how they ��� ����� �� ������������� ������ ��������� ���� ����� ������ do that. How can the liar think so fast on his feet as to say, “Oh, I must ����������� ���� ����� ������ ����� ���� ������ ���� ������� ����� have misspoken a few times about my service in Viet Nam.” Right. How ���������������������������������������������������������� can a liar go to sleep at night? Surely the things they’ve said during the �������� ���� ����� ������ �� ���� ����� ���� �� ���� ���� �������� day must be churning inside their consciousness and prevent any rest ��������������������������������������������������������������������������� at all. This is worse than name dropping or trying to one up everyone in a conversation. Making up your past is incredible. Why would anyone as ���������������������������� successful as State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal allow people ������������ ����� ����� ���� ������ ����� ��� ������ ��� �������� ����� to think he served in Viet Nam when he didn’t? Why would he see the �������������������������������������������������������������������� need to do so? He has been an effective Attorney General for the state of �������������������� Connecticut for many years. After all the good work he has done, he is sadly diminished to the brand of liar. A misspeaker. I guess that sounds a little less harsh. That’s probably why the word has become so popular these days. There are so many misspeakers using it. “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” is out. “Misspeaker, misspeaker, you just get in deeper!” is in. I just received a press release with the word “intergenera���������������� tional” in the headline. It’s in the ������� Vermont News Guide this week. �������� It has seven syllables and 17 letters. The word doesn’t appear in one of my dictionaries, but it is on the Internet. Dictionaries are much like computers and their software...old and outdated before the year is up or the pages even showing the slightest bit of use. Susanism: Be careful with whom you play Scrabble. They may be on the cutting edge of ����������������� newly created words.

Intergenerational Reading at Equinox Terrace

“Once upon a time there was a princess who threw a ball into the air…” and so goes the story of the Frog Prince, as read fluently by a second-grader from the Maple Street School to a delighted resident of the Terrace. ________________________________________________

Indian Hill Art Reception Memorial Day Weekend

Indian Hill Imageworks is pleased to announce a reception celebrating the newest body of photographic artworks by artist Stephen M. Schaub on Saturday, May 29 from 4 to 6 p.m. “MAP: the Mobile Art Project” will feature a selection of over thirty exciting artworks springing from a controvertial and wholly unexpected source: the camera cell phone. Can a camera be a person? Can a camera be an extension of our physical being? We are one with technology more now than we have ever been, which begs the question: is the camera phone too utilitarian for such a lofty goal as the creation of art, the very idea akin to trying to make art with your toaster, or your travel alarm clock? Or, does this “new” medium which is always with us — as much as our eyes and ears are — inspire a new manner of artistic perception and working? “MAP” continues Schaub’s emotional exploration of our natural environment, the effects of time and the fragmentation of memory. Rich, micro-contrasts and colors couple with unique, in-camera overlapping techniques and manipulated aspect ratios to form an elaborate parallel universe of intense color, light and life. “I love to push at the boundaries of this medium — in different ways of image taking, in developing new, untried ways of processing, in inventing ways of printing on unusual materials,” explains Schaub. This event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served. All works on display will be available for purchase, each offered as an edition of one. Indian Hill Imageworks is located on River Road in Pawlet, just off Route 30, three miles north of town center. In addition to the reception, the gallery will be open that day beginning at 10 a.m. and Sunday by appointment. For more information: 802-325-2274, www.indianhillimageworks. com. May 26, 2010

John Lybert, manager of Stewart’s in Arlington, received a plaque for their generous support to the Arlington Food Shelf. They not only help out with financial donations, but also supply the food shelf with bakery products throughout the year. The Arlington Food Shelf is an all volunteer endeavor that serves over 225 individuals in the community, including senior citizens, families, single parents with children, and others who fall between the cracks of existing programs, and are in need of temporary assistance. Thanks go to Stewart’s because it is this type of support that allows us to help those in need during these challenging economic times.

Rutland County Humane Society Pets

We heard from our visitors and adopters how nice it would be if the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) shelter was open on Sundays. For many, Sunday is a good day to visit with the animals and adopt. As a result, the shelter is open both weekend days. The shelter is now open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 - 5 and closed on Monday and Tuesday. We hope these new hours will allow people more flexibility for visiting and adopting our animals. If you have any questions, please contact the shelter at 483-6700. The Humane Society is located at 765 Stevens Road, Pittsford, Vermont. Web site: www.rchsvt.org Hours of operation: Wednesday – Sunday: 12-5, Monday and Tuesday, closed. RCHS is now open on Sundays. IVAN 11 year old. Neutered Male. Akita. I am an old fella who would really rather be snoozing on your porch than kenneled here! I was surrendered by my family because I am going deaf and blind and am getting snappish when I am startled. I lived with them my whole life and I don’t know why they gave up on me so late in the game. My health is reasonably good for my age—some dental disease.

Memorial Day Bike Swap Bring your old bike to our Rawsonville, Mount Snow or Ludlow locations for evaluation. We will set a price. When it sells, you get a store credit towards a new bike. Please drop off your bike by Thursday, May 27. Used and new bikes available for purchase Friday, May 28-Monday, May 31.

WESTERLY 1 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Black and White. Yes, but yet another stray and no one calling to find me. I arrived on April 16 and am ready for a new home with someone to make sure I stay inside so I don’t run off again. I love to sit on your lap and sing you a lovely song while getting a brushing. Don’t forget lots of kitty toys to keep me active and entertained! ________________________________________________

Second Chance Animal Center Pets

KENZIE is a nine month old spayed female Siamese mix that came to SCAC with her house mate Tiger Lilly. Tiger Lilly is a nine month old spayed female long hair tabby. Both cats came from a neglectful home where Tiger Lilly was injured by a child that slammed her leg in a door breaking her leg and was never taken to see a Vet for proper treatment. As a result Tiger Lilly has a limp but gets around just fine. Kenzie is the most outgoing of the pair and is very protective of Tiger Lilly. Tiger Lilly is a little shy and is greatly comforted by Kenzie. These two kitties do need to go home as a pair since they have been through so much together and are very attached to one another. If you looking are for a pair of loving cats please come see Kenzie and Tiger Lilly. ELIJAH is a black and white neutered male Siamese cross who has been at Second Chance for over one year. Elijah is a quirky and affectionate fellow who loves attention. Elijah originally came to Second Chance because his owner had 80 cats and needed help finding good homes for them. Since he had come from a home with other cats he would be very happy in a multiple cat home. ZEUS is an eight year old, male Alaskan Malamute who came back to Second Chance because he was too active for his new owners. Previously, he enjoyed repeatedly killing his neighbor’s fowl, which became an issue between the two families. Unfortunately, Zeus had been in his first home for seven years before he had to be given up. A handsome and striking fellow, Zeus will require his coat to be groomed very regularly because of his undercoat. Zeus is an excellent fellow who has a happy and enthusiastic personality. Quite the talker, Zeus happily howls at his human friends for attention. He is playful, obedient and fun-loving. We recommend a home with children ten years and older. (Continued on page 32)

Two Burr and Burton Students Regional Winners in UVM Math Contest

Burr and Burton Academy senior Peter (Junguang) Pan was the firstplace regional winner in the University of Vermont’s 53rd annual High School Prize Examination in Mathematics. Junior Shu Lin was awarded second place. The winners traveled to UVM on May 12 to participate in Math Day. According to Mathematics Department Chair Mike Caraco, UVM’s Department of Mathematics competition is a great complement to Burr and Burton’s math programs and philosophies.“We can always count on this as a thoughtful, well-constructed contest that challenges students to apply many of the algorithms, concepts and skills from the traditional high school curriculum,” said Caraco. “While other competitions and challenging problems allow students access to various technology tools such as a graphing calculator, the UVM exam restricts students to paper and pencil.” _________________________________________________

Kiwanis Chicken Barbecue

The traditional spring Kiwanis Chicken Barbecue will be held on Tuesday, June 8 at the Hoosick Falls Fire Department on Griffin Avenue, Hoosick Falls, New York.

You can pick up your meal starting at 4:30 p.m. For tickets call Malcolm at 518-686-1520 or Gale at 518-686-4600 or contact any local Kiwanis member. ________________________________________________

Putting Math Lessons to Work

Flood Brook Union School 6th grade students are putting their math lessons to work making quilts and blankets for homeless children as part of Project Night Night. With the help of their teacher, Victoria Winokur, they are designing and sewing crib sized quilt tops using their knowledge of geometry, measures, multiplication, etc. The blankets become part of a tote bag containing blanket, book and stuffed animal to be given to children ages infant to 13 who enter homeless shelters in Vermont. Their goal is to fill 100 tote bags to donate to Project Night Night by June 15. Project Night Night is a non-profit organization whose work is carried out through Night Night Packages that are delivered to thousands of homeless and transient children in shelters across the country. These individual tote bags contain a new and unused security blanket, ageappropriate books, and a stuffed animal to help children have sweeter dreams. Every child who receives a Night Night Package leaves the shelter with a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend. If you would like to donate a blanket/quilt to the project, it should be new or newly handmade and “crib size” or smaller. We appreciate quilted, fleece, crocheted, “no-sew”, and purchased children’s blankets or lovies. Drop them off at Flood Brook Union School on Route 11 in Londonderry or give them to a Flood Brook 6th grade student. All gifts are appreciated.

BBA Student Special Project Fund Supports Student Initiative

Last fall, Luke, Michaela and Richard traveled to Cambridge to learn more about malaria prevention from Harvard senior David Sengeh, one of the GMin founders. David was so impressed by the Burr and Burton students’ work that he made time in his busy schedule to visit Burr and Burton and MEMS to talk about the project. He also talked to the students about his participation in the World College, which brings students together from all around the world and promotes international service. He pointed out that he started his first project when he was a high school student, and encouraged everyone to get involved in world affairs as much as possible.

Burr and Burton’s Student Council members have taken on a new role this year: young philanthropists. They put their hard earned money from dances and other special events into a brand new Special Project Fund “to make a positive difference in our community, in our country, and beyond our borders.” The students say they were inspired by Margaret Mead’s observation to “never doubt that a small number of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” They invited their fellow students to come up with ideas for how to help others and write up a proposal. Like any group asking a foundation for support, there were several steps to complete including a description of the project, how it would be effective, how much they were requesting, the time frame for the project, and their plans for informing the community of their results. In addition, the project authors were required to make an oral presentation before the Selection ���������������������������������� Committee. This first year the Special Project �������������������������� Fund awarded $2,500 in grants. The projects funded ranged from BBA’S �������������������������������� Global Minimum Initiative which ������������������������������� is raising money to buy mosquito ��������������������������� nets for Sierra Leone to providing ���������������������������������� books for the Northshire’s Early ������������������������������������� Literacy Outreach Program. Junior Luke Drabyn said the grant �������������������� of $500 from the Special Project ��������������������������� Fund was critical to the establish�� ����� ��������� ment of the Service Learning group he started with classmates Richard Siu and Michaela Madden which has taken up the cause of GMin, an international non-profit started by four college students to eradicate ���������� ���� ���� malaria in Sierra Leone. �������������������������������������� The Burr and Burton students ����������������������������������������������� signed on as a local branch of ������������������� GMin and so far they have raised �������������������������� over $2,000 to buy mosquito nets, the first step toward preventing ���������� �������� malaria. They have also gotten the elementary schools involved. “We ������������������� have held dances and made presentations at Maple Street School and MEMS.” They ordered silicone bracelets in blue and white that they � ������������������������� ����������������������� ��������������� ������������ ����������� ������ sell for $5, the cost of one mosquito � ������������ ������������ ������������ ���������������������������������������������� net big enough for a family.

RSVP and Volunteer Center Receives McCarty Grant

Fisher Elementary and Sunderland Elementary. Research tells us that students who lag behind in reading, will experience difficulty in every other subject as they move forward in school. Reading Readiness teachers in Bennington and Windham Counties report that children entering school with limited language experience will continue to fall behind their classmates and often have a negative attitude about school. Without a strong reading foundation in elementary school, the path towards failure will be ever present. This is where Seniors for Schools will come to the rescue to help build that reading foundation that will give young students a chance for a better future. We are looking for volunteers age 55 and over who live in the mountain towns or the Arlington area to take up the challenge to give kids a love and appreciation of reading that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. An hour or two a week can make all the difference. Call 4471545 for information on how to get started. ________________________________________________

Want to have some fun? Don’t know where to go tonight?

Senior Megan Lavalley recently received word that she has been ranked nationally in the 75th annual Le Grand Concours, a national competition sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of French. Students were evaluated for their written, oral and listening comprehension skills in French. Over 100,000 students in all 50 states competed in the 2010 event. Other Burr and Burton students were ranked in the top 10 in the region of Vermont and Western Massachusetts: Charlotte Palmer and Masho Deen for Level 1; Sophia Guglietta, Allison Tobia, Sarah Baum, and Sydney Gayda for Level 2; Sabrina DeWeerdt, Mariette Aborn, Tianna Bonang, and Faryn Borella for Level 4; and Julietta Cole for Level 5. “These outstanding students reflect well on the French programs in their schools and French teachers under whose guidance they have studied,” said Ann Sunderland, president of the association. “They constitute an asset to their communities and their present and future schools because they have multilingual capabilities, a greater understanding of world cultures and a high work ethic.” _______________________________________________

Open House at Second Chance Animal Center

Come one, come all! Second Chance Animal Center, located on Route 7A in Shaftsbury, Vermont (just north of Shaftsbury State Park), is holding its annual open house on Saturday, June 5 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Take a tour of the shelter, get to see some of the wonderful animals that are available for adoption, meet old friends and make new ones, find out about volunteer opportunities, and enjoy the free refreshments. If you have never visited Second Chance, now is your opportunity. Some people are afraid to visit a shelter because they think they will be overwhelmed by sadness. But Second Chance is light and bright, and the animals are well cared for. Most important, however, is that Second Chance is a no-kill shelter. Animals are given an open-ended stay until they are adopted. Second Chance never euthanizes an animal to make space for new arrivals. To find out more about Second Chance and to see photos of some of our animals and read their stories, log on to our web site at www.2ndch anceanimalcenter.org. For more information call 375-2898.

Brownies Donate Cookie Profits to MEMS

Students Become Internet Safety Trainers

Brownie Sophie Jager recently presented a check for $200 to Mary Jo Gourd, chair of the Friends Foundation for MEMS, to help fund priorities at Manchester Elementary-Middle School (MEMS) that are not covered by the regular school budget. All the girls of Brownie Troop 232 agreed to split their profits made from selling Girl Scout cookies three ways; as they attend MEMS, it was their desire to first help out their school with a donation. They decided to spend another 1/3 on a family dinner which they recently planned and prepared. The rest of their profits will go towards pots they decorated and planted for the residents at Equinox Terrace. If there are any remaining funds, they will make a donation to the Community Food Cupboard. Gourd said, “We are so blessed to have thoughtful, caring girls like these in our community and in our school. We are very grateful that they chose to donate to our campaign, to help MEMS be the best it can be.”

Funny how you’ll plan every aspect of every trip... except the most important one you’ll ever take.

The first year students in the Stafford Technical Center Public Safety Services Class just became nationally certified as trainers in the area of internet safety. The training was provided by Paul Faenza, a retired NYPD Sgt. who is a master trainer through I-SAFE and is presently employed by the Black River Area Coalition. I- SAFE is the largest and most well-known source for internet safety materials and training. The “train the trainer” course that the students took had four main components; the students can offer any or all of the components in any trainings that they do in the future. The first element was cyberbullying, which is using a computer to harass someone else. This is most commonly done by teens that pick on another; sometimes, like in the case that occurred a few years ago in Essex, where fellow students harassed a teenager to the point where he committed suicide. Just recently, there have been some high-profile cyberbullying cases in Massachusetts; at least one of them resulted in the kid being bullied committing suicide. The second component of the class deals with illegal downloading and file sharing. The class had clips from stars of music and film who explained that their work was their intellectual property, and then when people illegally download and file share, that the artists, composers and performers all suffer personal financial losses. The class also makes people aware of the significant penalties that you can incur for doing this. The third area of concern is viruses, and other things that can damage or destroy computers. People who send viruses out to wreak their damage on others are hard to understand; they do it for the warped enjoyment that they get by hurting people who are strangers to them. Lastly, hacking, identity theft and internet scams are all too common. Most of us have received one or more “Nigerian scams”, where someone from Nigeria says that he has just come into a large sum of money (often under questionable legal circumstances), and would be happy to share that with you, if you provide a much smaller sum of money as a show of good faith. Of course, people who send the money never get anything in return. Others have purchased items through the internet only to find that they got nothing in return, or got something completely different than what they ordered. Even more sinister are scams that steal your credit card numbers and other personal identification, thus allowing the thieves to steal your identity in order to access your bank accounts and credit. The students who are now certified to provide this training to others are: Kayla Stewart from West Rutland High School, Cierra Phelps, Haley Cotrupi, and James Reed from Mill River Union High School, Huge Jamie Bonilla, Chris Crout, and Selection of Colors & Styles! Jordan Grenier from Rutland High School, , and Kyle Lenher from Proctor High School. The students are now available to do presentations to school groups, Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, church youth groups and other groups that would benefit from this program.

One-Stop Enrollment Day, for Healthcare Majors at Southern Vermont College Entering first-year and transfer students will have an opportunity to enroll on the spot at Southern Vermont College in Bennington on Tuesday, June 15, in the Admissions Office. The focus of this event will be for individuals who are interested in the field of healthcare, but any major interest is welcomed to attend. In one day, at once place and at one time, prospective students can complete the admissions process, tour the campus, learn more about transfer credits, find out about scholarships and financial aid, register for classes, and have the application fee waived. Scholarships and grants may be awarded to students who qualify. Individuals are asked to bring a copy of their SAT scores, transcripts from all schools attended and letters of recommendation if available.

The industry has added more than a half-million jobs since the recession started, while most other industries cut workers and slashed payrolls in equal measure. Ask any career expert about the most promising field right now and you’ll hear ‘healthcare.’” The majors in the field of healthcare offered by Southern Vermont College include: Nursing (for an associate’s degree and bachelor’s degree), Healthcare Management and Advocacy (for a bachelor’s degree) and Radiologic Technology (for a bachelor’s degree).

‘Dangerous Obsession’ at Oldcastle Theatre Company

Enthusiastic audiences and critical raves greeted the Oldcastle Theatre Company/Bickford Theatre production of N.J. Crisp’s riveting suspense play, “Dangerous Obsesssion” when it opened in New Jersey as the first of a series of joint productions between the two theatres and now the play is set to open Oldcastle’s 39th season Friday, June 11 at the Bennington Center for the Arts. New Jersey’s Daily Record described the production as a criminal conspiracy, life-threatening conflicts, noisy guns and unexpected twists — and the promise of a gripping “whodunit” is delivered...delivers a fascinating and welcome character study...certainly theater fans in Vermont will enjoy his work. The Recorder Community Newspaper critic wrote: “Director Eric Peterson has done an excellent job especially with the pacing of this exciting thriller.” The production features three actors making their Oldcastle debuts. Lisa Gunn was seen on Broadway in the hit musical “Annie” and has been seen in the M.Night Shyamalian film “The Happening” and the upcoming feature “The Last Days of ApriL.” Her television credits include “As The World Turns.” Paul Mantell has previously appeared at the Bickford Theatre in “Chapter Two” and “Communicating Doors.” Chrisopher Yates has made many appearances in Shakespearian plays such as “Hamlet” and “Julius Ceasar” and is a veteran of several National Touring companies including productions of “Les Miserables,” “Blood Brothers,” “Jekyll and Hyde” and “Drood.” The Artistic Director of the Bickford Theatre, Eric Hafen, described “Dangerous Obsession” as “a great evening of suspense. We will sell you the whole seat,” Hafen would tell New Jersy audi������������������ ences, “but you’ll only need the ������������������� edge.” ���������������������� Playwright N.J. Crisp was one ����������������������� of Britain’s most prolific television writers as well as a dramatist and ��������������������������� ���������������� novelist. “Dangerous Obsession” has been a hit on both sides of ������������������������� the Atlantic and was made into a film in 1999. The set is designed by longtime Oldcastle collaborator W. John Aupperlee, who most recently designed Oldcastle’s set for “On Golden Pond.” The costumes are by Cindy Caprano who has designed several productions for the Bickford and works on ������������������������ NBC’s “Law and Order SVU.”

Starlight Stage Youth Theatre

Starlight Stage Youth Theatre is now accepting applications for its 35th anniversary season, June 28-August 1. This year’s production, directed by Brandon S. and Robert Y. Burns, will be a new stage adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass (And What Alice Found There)” by Gail M. Burns. Published six years after “Alice in Wonderland,” but set only six months later in Alice’s life, “Through the Looking Glass” is often conflated with Carroll’s earlier book in stage and film adaptations into a single story. While there is no Mad Tea Party and not even the Cheshire Cat’s grin makes an appearance, “Through the Looking Glass” contains some of Carroll’s most beloved characters – the White Knight, Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee, Humpty-Dumpty, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and, of course, the Jabberwock, as the Red and White Queens lead Alice across the chessboard of Looking-Glass Land in search of her own crown. Founded in 1976, Starlight offers a hands-on theatre experience for young people ages 818. The tuition-based program operates from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at the First Congregational Church on Main Street (Rt. 2) in Williamstown. The church is right on the BRTA route and is handicap accessible. Over the course of five weeks of rehearsal the company stages a full production which is open to the general public for four evening performances. Starlight has been directed by Robert Y. Burns and the Burns family of Williamstown since its inception. For further information on tuition costs and to register visit our Web site www.Star lightStageYouthTheatre.com;call 413-458-4246.

On Thursday, June 3 at 7:00 p.m., Ted Gilley, a freelance writer and editor, will read from and discuss his book, “Bliss and Other Short Stories.” The reading will kick off the 2010 “Books for Bennington” series held in the Ada Paresky Education Center at the Bennington Museum. “Books for Bennington” features talks by regional authors, and is free and open to the public. Winner of the Prairie Schooner Prize for Fiction, “Bliss and Other Short Stories” is a collection of nine stories that introduces readers to an edgy vision and a world in which certainties are tested and then found wanting. In one of the stories, a Cambodian refugee negotiates the icy waters of American social and sexual life. Another finds a young couple seeking “peak experiences” to escape grief, only to discover that they’ve brought it along with them. Unable to face the imminent end of her grandfather’s life, a teenage girl risks her own life in an impulsive act, and yet another story finds a man’s fragile hold on reality becoming the key to his finding, albeit through a terrifying labyrinth, his heart’s desire. The characters in “Bliss and Other Short Stories” must find their way to a truth that, though less than perfect, is one they can live with. Finding bliss is as much about pain as about pleasure. Gilley’s poems and short stories have appeared in “Poetry Northwest,” “Northwest Review,” “Prairie Schooner,” “Rattle,” “The National Review,” “New England Review,” and many other magazines and in the anthologies “Potlatch” and “October Mountain.” The Bennington Museum is located at 75 Main Street (Route 9), Bennington, in The Shires of Vermont.

of the twenty-first century. Intercultural understanding and respect are integral to the program and are entirely consistent with Long Trail’s core values. The curriculum has a global context, which will widen our community’s perspective, and it offers our students a competitive advantage in the college admission process. Finally, the IB program just makes sense. We are increasingly preparing our students for careers that do not yet exist, and the marketplace for those careers is becoming more and more international. The IB is unparalleled in offering an education that will distinguish our students in that marketplace and provide them with the skills they need to excel.” ________________________________________________

Chrissy Anderson Receives Outstanding Community Service Award

Chrissy Anderson is serving as a Vermont Youth Development Corps AmeriCorps State Program member with The Collaborative since 2008, and recently received the 2010 Governor’s Award for Outstanding Community Service. The award recognizes an individual member of a national service program who has demonstrated outstanding volunteer service above and beyond the requirements of the designated program. Chrissy has demonstrated her service as a leader for the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapter at Burr and Burton Academy. She has been able to assist the students in planning substance free events throughout the year. Some of these events include broomball nights at Riley Rink, middle school dances, movie nights, and open game nights. The open game nights take place at the Manchester Parks and Recreation and are held in the summer months. In addition to the events the BBA SADD Chapter raises money through tag sales and car washes. Due to these fundraising efforts the SADD group has raised enough money to go to the SADD national conference in Florida. Chrissy will accompany a group of five students. Chrissy also has been able to enhance The Collaborative’s mentoring program by recruiting mentors for communities that did not have any. The mentoring program enrollment has increased and expanded. More schools were brought into The Collaborative’s mentor program and now students have access to mentors and mentoring programs. Congratulations to Chrissy!

Local Residents Push Back Against Beavers

The Graduate Program in the History of Art, sponsored jointly by Williams College and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, will present the Fifteenth Annual Spring Symposium on Friday, June 4. Members of the M.A. class of 2010 will present papers on topics ranging from experimental film to contemporary Chinese art to images of dentists in 17th–century Dutch paintings. The day will include consideration of broad themes as well as discussions of single works of art. This day-long free symposium will begin at 9 a.m. at the Clark, and the public is invited to attend. Symposium papers are developed from longer qualifying papers that each student writes during the second-year winter study period, revising and refining work from an earlier seminar. The symposium comprises public, scholarly performances. The graduate program is among the United States’ foremost master’s programs in art history, with both a national and international reputation. Among the premier art education programs in the world, it has produced almost 400 graduates who have taken their place as leaders in the art and academic fields. The Clark and Williams work symbiotically, offering their professional staffs, libraries, and art collections to the students as invaluable resources. Program professors are drawn from both institutions and the program is housed at the Clark. The Clark’s extensive research facilities, such as the library, support the original academic scholarship conducted by the students. The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. For information, call 413-458-2303 or visit clarkart. edu.

On May 17 a team of Wells residents successfully restored boating access within the lower channel of Lake St. Catherine. The channel had been clogged by beaver feed lines over the past year, making it impassible by boat by this spring. The project to clean out the channel was arranged and conducted by the Lake St. Catherine Conservation Fund (LSCCF), a recently-formed organization that is working toward restoring the lake system to “accustomed use” standards. The LSCCF applied for a permit with the State of Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) to use a mechanical device to clear up deterioration of the lower channel at the start of this year. When it became evident that the state’s authorization might not be available before late summer, the LSCCF asked for permission to clean the channel sooner manually. ANR agreed to the work, provided no mechanical equipment was used. Last Monday, a team from the LSCCF worked from several boats to clear the channel by hand and haul away two trailer loads of wood that had been laid in by beavers. The result is an open channel that boats can once again access. The LSCCF is committed to a continued program to restore the lake system to “accustomed use.” “Accustomed use” is a legal term recognizing the public’s right to access public assets in the same manner as they have in the past. Deterioration of the lake system due to eutrophication is increasingly apparent particularly on the southern end of the lake. Eutrophication is a natural process that is well underway in Lake Saint Catherine and if not reversed will lead to a narrower and shallower little lake with little recreation value.

‘Jimmy’s Canoe Comes Home’

Part I: Jimmy Fisher was the only son of Dorothy Canfield Fisher and her husband John. He graduated from Harvard Medical School, and was unfortunately killed in the Pacific in World War II. During his childhood he had a canoe, and enjoyed many hours on the Battenkill – including (legend has it) taking it over the dam where Route 313 now crosses the river. The canoe is now back in Arlington. Over the years, the Fishers were friends with Herbert and Helen Congdon. Herbert, a junior partner at his father’s New York City architectural firm, made summer visits to Arlington, becoming acquainted with many people. Interactions with the Canfield family and Herbert formed in 1901. Dorothy and Herbert met around that time, and became friends. Each would contact the other when planning to be in Arlington, for such pleasures as viewing foliage, and winter snowshoeing. They met also for walks near the Pacific Palisades along the Hudson outside New York City, where both were in college. Dorothy and Herbert continued this friendship following their graduate studies in the early 1900s, and the friendship carried on after Dorothy married John Fisher. The architectural firm was seriously hindered by the advent of World War I and its economic effects. When his father died in 1923, Henry moved to Arlington, into the top two floors of The Brick House (now the Community Club building in the village center). Not long after that, he met and married Helen. They subsequently built a house on Buck Hill Road. Dorothy and Helen were both active with Girl Scouts; the Congdons were active at the Martha Canfield Library in Arlington; and later Helen

Part II: According to Old Town Canoe manufacturers in Maine, this particular 16-foot canoe was built in 1908. (Old Town, the Cadillac of wooden canoes, began producing these craft in 1898 in Orono.) Jimmy’s canoe is a Trapper, Model XX — with the original serial number still on it — one of around 50 originals. Enter Lance Alpi of Williamstown, Massachusetts. Stephen Congdon approached Alpi for restoration of this canoe, at his cost, prior to its presentation to the Arlington Community Club “for their use as they see fit.” Over this past winter, Alpi restored the canoe, finding special woods to match the original, then using leftover wood from the restoration to make a pair of matching paddles. Jimmy’s canoe was delivered to Arlington several weeks ago, and will be in the Memorial Day Parade on May 31. Stephen Congdon is expected to ride in the cab of the truck carrying the canoe. Following the parade, the truck will take the canoe to the Arlington American Legion for a meet-and-greet with Congdon family members, and possible photo opps afterward at the Arlington Community House for more social interaction.This event will signify closing the circle between the Fishers and the Congdons, honoring what began more than a century ago. The Community Club is holding a raffle for the canoe paddles recently constructed by Lance Alpi, beginning Memorial Day and continuing through Norman’s Attic the first week in August. Other items to be raffled are a wagon hub lamp made for Helen Congdon; numerous photos of Arlington and its residents, taken in the early 1900s by Herbert Congdon; several books by Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Walter Hard (some autographed). It is planned that a “float down the Battenkill in Jimmy’s canoe” be arranged in the near future. _______________________________________________

became Dorothy’s personal secretary. Dorothy also sent the Congdons’ son Stephen to an international summer camp for several weeks, and when Dorothy died, Herbert played the organ at her service at St. James Episcopal Church. Around the spring of 1950, Dorothy gave Jimmy’s canoe to Stephen Congdon. Stephen and father Herbert enjoyed the canoe for many trips on the Battenkill. In 1964, Stephen moved to Richmond, Massachusetts; the canoe went along, and Stephen and his son had more happy hours in it. In later years, the canoe saw less and less use, but was always under shelter. Recently Stephen was downsizing his life, and felt it appropriate for the canoe to return to Arlington, to honor the Canfield and Fisher families who were so influential to him.

Equinox Village Partners with Greater Manchester Arts Council

Equinox Village—Manchester, Vermont’s premier independent living community—is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with the Greater Manchester Arts Council. Each month for the rest of 2010, the Gallery at Equinox Village will host a talented local artist affiliated with the Council for a Gallery Opening Event, a one-month show, and an artist discussion. Twenty percent of the proceeds of sales made during each show will benefit the Greater Manchester Arts Council. The remaining 80 percent will go directly to the artist. This is far more than an artist could expect to earn from selling pieces at a private gallery show. “Equinox Village has a beautiful gallery space and many residents involved with visual arts on local, national, and international scales. I am thrilled that we are able to offer our gallery as a community venue for the sharing and discussion of art,” said Equinox Village’s Executive Director Kirt Sampson. “At the same time, we are offering artists exposure to the community and helping the Greater Manchester Arts Council generate funds for even more beneficial arts projects.” “Providing emerging artists with alternative exhibition spaces in our communities is important for artists who might not have an opportunity to exhibit their work. Artists will be invited to share their perspectives on their work, their role in their communities, and the impact the arts can have in enriching and building vitality within the region,” said Greater Manchester Arts Council’s Executive Director Beth Meachem. The first event of the collaboration will take place 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 17, at the Gallery at Equinox Village. Danby artist Susan Houghton Debus will show her work, New England scenes painted in the primitive style. Equinox Village’s Executive Chef Glenn Blackledge will prepare light hors d’oeuvres, and local musicians will entertain. The Gallery at Equinox Village is open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The show will remain in the gallery until July 12. A discussion of Debus’s work is scheduled for July 1. Equinox Village is a vibrant independent living community situated on eleven pristine acres in the heart of the Green Mountains’ rich cultural and recreational opportunities. Residents enjoy private, spacious apartments with exquisite views and many premier services. Well-appointed common areas provide ideal places to meet family and friends and to participate in cultural events, health and wellness programs, and educational opportunities. Equinox Village was founded in 2006 by brothers Dr. Jim Russell and John Russell. They lead a team of caring professionals to offer the premier independent living experience in the region. The Greater Manchester Arts Council, Inc., a regional arts organization, is committed to engaging community in creative partnerships that enhance life-style and long-term economic stability. Their aim is to provide abundant opportunities for the community—artists, writers, performers, educators, residents and visitors—to become involved with the arts. They sponsor and promote the Southern Vermont Arts Trail, the Manchester and the Mountains Poets and Writers Weekend, and many partnerships throughout the region.

Susie Houghton Debus Exhibition

The Gallery at Equinox Village and the Greater Manchester Arts Council present Susan Houghton Debus. Please join us for a Gallery Opening Event. 5:30 – 6 p.m., on Thursday, June 17 at the Gallery at Equinox Village. Meet the artist and enjoy hors d’oeuvres by Executive Chef Glenn Blackledge. Call 802-362-4061 to R.S.V.P. by Friday, June 11. Influenced by the work of primitive masters Charles Wysocki, Jane Wooster Scott and Grandma Moses, Susan Houghton Debus started painting primitives in the mid-1990s. She draws on her travels to create colorful, whimsical, and nostalgic scenes of Vermont. Her trademark and beloved dog Danby (who has since passed away) is found in each and every painting.

There will be a reception in Willard Hall following the service with finger foods and other treats.

responses to real and perceived stressors in their daily lives, and to give them skills necessary to engage in these relaxation activities on their own. Drawn from the ancient natural medicine of India, called Ayurveda, and Yoga, Ayurveda’s sister science of mind-body integration, the course is designed for people of all ages and abilities, regardless of prior experience with mind-body medicine. Instruction will be individualized according to the needs and capabilities of attendees. Participants are asked to wear loose clothing and to bring a towel or small blanket to class. There is no charge for the six-week class, but pre-registration is required. Please call 802-365-3649 by Thursday, June 3. _________________________________________________

In a place as beautiful as Hildene it seems only proper that in the season of pollination we pay homage to the “tiny insect” that helps make it possible, the honeybee. To this end Hildene will host a family event to celebrate the honey bee on Sunday, June 6 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in the Beckwith Room, suggested ages 8 and up. Author and scientist Loree Griffin Burns will lead an interactive program introducing the group to the amazing world of a honey bee colony. Attendees will also learn about the beekeepers who raise them and the team of scientists working tirelessly to understand the mysterious disorder that currently threatens the bees’ very existence. Prior to having a family, Burn’s life’s work had been scientific research. She graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and later earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She acknowledges that after her three children were born, things got a bit hectic. By melding her professional interests with her personal life, however, she was able to craft her “perfect career, writing books about science and scientists for children.” Following the bee program and a visit to the observation hive in The Museum Store, Loree Griffin Burns will be signing her new book, “The Hive Detectives,” “a dramatic and enlightening chronicle of a modern honey bee catastrophe, where readers explore the lives of the fuzzy buzzing insects we ought to love … and join the human quest to save them.” Admission to “Plan Bee: A Celebration of the Honey Bee” is $3. Members and volunteers are free. Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly recommended. To learn more about the event or to register, call Stephanie at 802-367-7960 or email Stephanie@hildene.org. For further information on The Lincoln Family Home at Hildene visit www.hildene.org.

Saturday, June 5, is National Trails Day. In recognition, The Friends of the West River Trail are hosting an open house at the South Londonderry Depot, on Route 100, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Activities will include a free bicycle inspection and tune up, complimentary ice cream from the Walpole Creamery, tours of the restored depot and, of course, hiking and bicycling on the beautiful West River Trail. Maps of the trail are available at the depot. The Trail follows, as closely as possible, the roadbed of the longabandoned West River Railroad, which served the valley from its opening in 1879 until service ceased in the mid-1930s, the result of major competition from new highways and major damage from a hurricane. The roadbed adhered closely to the river and affords fine views of the pastoral stream and the steep hills that rise from its banks. Being a former roadbed, the Trail is generally flat and offers an easy and relaxing walk. Portions are handicapped-accessible. It is the goal of The Friends of the West River Trail (FWRT) to convert the entire 36 mile route of the railroad, which ran from Brattleboro to South Londonderry, into a viable recreation facility. Today, 16 miles along the upper section of this valley route provide a safe and scenic alternative to Route 30 for hikers, walkers, skiers and bikers, linking the villages of South Londonderry, Jamaica and Townshend with 4,500 acres of unspoiled public land. The depot itself was constructed in the 1870s. FWRT purchased the structure in 2000 in derelict condition with a Vermont Agency of Transportation enhancement grant. Work performed since then has led to the restoration of the Depot’s exterior to its appearance in the 1930s and the rehabilitation of its interior space for exhibitions and public gatherings. The Depot will serve as a Visitor Center and trailhead

Thank you to everyone who attended our 4th Annual “Blessing of the Cows” this Sunday May 16! We had a beautiful evening with over 100 people in attendance! We even had a new calf born shortly after the event! The cows were blessed by our neighbor and friend Kermit Reilly who will turn 80 this July! Be sure to watch our web site, www.taylorfarmvermont.com, for upcoming events throughout the Summer! Thanks for supporting Local Farmers! — Sincerely, Jon Wright! The “Blessing of the Cows”, or, “Girls Night Out”, as it is named by Reverend Kermit Reilly is a symbolic turning of the season as the heifers are granted the first access to the grassy fields in the new year. The excitement of going out to pasture is punctuated when the cows actually dance their way into the field!

Cricket, Anyone?

On Sunday, May 16, the first shots were fired in the lead-up to the 2010 Battle of Bennington! Seventeen cricketers gathered at lower Willow Park and held the first in a series of warm-up matches between “English” and “American” sides. Men and women of all ages (many who had never played the game before) joined the fray and contributed to a well-fought match. Unfortunately for Bennington, the father/son duo of Joe and Max Holt almost outscored the entire American side, leading the English to a comfortable win. The good news is that it’s not too late to join the Bennington County Cricket Club and fight for town and country ahead of the Battle Day Test Match on Sunday, August 15. So come out to lower Willow Park, Sundays at 10:30 a.m. all summer long and join in the fun!

Needed: Used, Good Condition Prescription Eye Glasses

With spring cleaning season underway, the NorShaft Lions Club is asking people to look through drawers and closets for old, unwanted eyeglasses and donate them to the Lions Recycle for Sight program. On Sunday, June 6, the NorShaft Lions Club will be collecting used prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses at the Shaftsbury Elementary School as part of their Pancake Breakfast from 8 a.m. - noon. The glasses will be distributed to those in need in developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible. “We need everyone to donate their old glasses,” said William Jakubowski, President, NorShaft Lions Club president. The glasses will be shipped to one of ten Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers where they will be cleaned, categorized by prescription and prepared for distribution by Lions and other groups. According to the World Health Organization, the eyesight of approximately one-fourth of the world’s population can be improved through the use of a corrective lens. If you cannot drop the glasses off on Sunday, donation boxes can be found at the Shaftsbury Country Store, the Shaftsbury Swap Shed at the Transfer Station, Merchants Bank, North Bennington, Whitman’s Feed Store, North Bennington, and the Hoosick Falls Country Club, Hoosick Falls, New York.

Manchester Elementary-Middle School’s Community Service Learning team invites you to participate in “Locks of Love Week” from June 1-11. To kick off the week, on Tuesday, June 1 several members of the MEMS school community will begin the donations by having their hair cut at a school-wide town meeting. Last year, over 500 inches of hair was donated between the school and community effort. Members of the community are encouraged to visit their favorite salon, get a haircut, and donate their 10 or more inches of hair to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Hair is needed from men and women, young and old, all colors and races. It is estimated that 80 percent of all donations come from children who wish to help other children. The basic donation guidelines:10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece, hair must be clean and in a ponytail or braid before it is cut, and hair must be completely dry before it is mailed in. You may drop off your hair in a Ziploc bag at MEMS. Please include your name so you can be recognized for your act of kindness. For more donation guidelines, please visit www.locksoflove.org. How many inches of hair can the Manchester community donate to Locks of Love in one week? We need your help — and your hair — to find out! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Merrill at 3621597 ext. 1132. Manchester Elementary-Middle School is Manchester’s public school, educating children from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. MEMS’ mission as a professional learning community is to engage students in academic work that results in high levels of achievement, responsibility and citizenship.

& BODY Pantene Beautiful Lengths Event held at Maple Street School

For the fourth year in a row, Maple Street School students, faculty, and friends have cut their hair as a donation. This year, students Lily Hickey, Miranda Eisenman, Sarah Crosier, Natalie Lam, Sarah Mangiacotti, Madison Humphrey, and Preston Stachelek each donated a ponytail measuring at least 8 inches of hair, as required by Beautiful Lengths. Joining these students were Maple Street School teachers, Joy Stewart and Erin Villamizar, as well as Isabella Lam, three year old sister of Natalie, Frances Dinanno, mother of Lily, and Riley Lane, daughter of Maple Street employee, Kate Bryan. Green Door Day Spa stylist and Maple Street parent, Ronda Ihasz, with stylists Liz Albright and Kristen Matteson, did the honors of cutting and styling each of the donors’ hair.

The ladies of the Green Door Day Spa donated their expertise and time to help out with this wonderful cause. For Miranda, a six-year old first grader, this was only her third “real” haircut. She was proud to share with the school that her first haircut took place when she was just two years old, “I was just a kid when I had my last hair cut.” Her second haircut took place last year at Maple Street School, when participants donated their hair to Locks of Love. Beautiful Lengths, founded by Pantene, encourages children, women and men to grow, cut, and donate their hair to make real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. In all, the event yielded over 100 inches of hair, which will help to produce wigs for two deserving women.

Nature Notes

— by Bonnie Dundas The full moon occurs on May 27 and is known as the Full Milk, Full Flower and Full Corn-planting Moon. The light from the moon will make sky watching more of a challenge for a week, but as it wanes make sure you get out and find the following planets: Venus in the west/northwest at sunset, Saturn in the south at sunset, and Mercury in the east at sunrise. Also the following constellations: The Virgin lying on her back, large head to the west and her miniskirt to the east, Hydra that flows along the southern horizon heading west, and Scorpion which is just coming into the summer sky with its 1st magnitude star, Antares. Our migrating birds are back and busy with courting, nesting, and raising broods. Two of my favorite birds in summer, the ��������������������� Wood Thrush and the Veery are ������������ back in our woods and singing at dusk. Grackles have taken over the feeders but a few of the smaller birds manage to get in there for a snack or two. The cardinals are early risers and late to bed birds, and manage to get their fill at those times. I’m told there was a Blue Grosbeak sighted in ������������������������� Arlington. We have seen them on

��������

�������������

rare occasions, but I’m wondering if this bird may have been an Indigo Bunting. The buntings have returned and seem to be everywhere this year. Butterflies are also abundant this spring. I saw a beautiful Red Admiral visiting the Daphne bush and have seen Cabbage Whites, Tiger Swallowtails, Viceroys, Common Ringlets, Sulphurs (?sp), and ringlets. The dragonflies are just now emerging from our pond. When I become aware that grackles are spending a lot of time at the pond’s edge, I know to look for the dragonflies. Dame’s Rocket can already be seen on roadsides. Here in our gardens, Weigela, roses, lupines, Lily of the Valleys, and Jack-in-the-pulpit are blooming. I’ve been asked to try to keep my column to two hundred words, and am already over the count! So, here I stop, wishing you all a Memorial Day filled with family remembrances. Contact me at 802447-7433 or cockatielvt@yahoo.com. ________________________________________________

Bread and Puppet Museum Open House

The Bread & Puppet Museum Open House is scheduled for Sunday, May 30 from 2 to 5 p.m. This begins the Museum’s, and Bread & Puppet Theater’s, thirty-fifth summer season in Glover. At first the puppets were displayed on only one floor of Daisy and Jim Dopp’s venerable dairy barn. Soon the exhibits expanded to fill, not only the cow-stalls downstairs, but the Cheap Art Bus across the road, the woodshed, and finally the walls of the relatively new performance space, recently dubbed the Paper-Mache Cathedral. Besides puppets of all sizes retired from past shows; there are masks of humans, demons, politicians and beasts, paintings, printed flags, and a Museum Store bursting with Bread & Puppet’s distinctive posters, publications, and banners, available almost nowhere else. The afternoon’s events begin at the Museum’s entrance with an improvised skit to awaken the little wooden Museum guard from his winter sleep, followed by some early American Shape Note hymns. Next-door-neighbor Burt Porter, with friends, provides more traditional music, as has been for the last thirty-four years. In and around the Museum, visitors will find: Burlington’s Tom Azarian showing his comical crankies; Modern Times Theater from East Hardwick with a lively handpuppet program; and Clare Dolan presenting the further adventures of Go-Go Girl. Peter Schumann, Bread & Puppet’s founder and director, when not furiously baking and slicing sourdough rye, may premiere some new Cantastorias. At about 4:30, the resident company — puppeteers Maryann Colella, Greg Corbino, Maura Gahan, Danny McNamara, Susie Perkins and Diane Sette, recently returned from a European tour, will perform the Dirt-Cheap Money Cabaret, with old and new acts, in the Paper-Mache Cathedral. The afternoon ends with a short meeting for anyone interested in this summer’s programs, schedule, and possibilities of participation. The Bread & Puppet Museum will be open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and after performances) until November 1. Admission is free, donations are welcome. Bread & Puppet Farm is located on Rt. 122 in Glover, Vermont, off Route. 16 and IS 91, exits 24/25. For more information, check out www.breadandpuppet.org, or call 802-525-3031.
