Boreal Tordu play Castleton concert Castleton College Summer Concerts presents Boreal Tordu, Tuesday, July 24, at 7 p.m. on the Old Chapel Green. In the event of rain, this concert will be moved into the Glenbrook Gymnasium. Their music brings to life the many influences of Maine’s poignant past, and they are on a cultural mission to make French live again. There is humor and there is pathos in the music of their rediscovery of the Northeast region’s rich musical traditions, but above all, there is enthusiasm.
Boreal Tordu draws listeners into a preeminently New England French-inspired roots music, drawing on the energy of the north woods and also suggesting something out of the ordinary, even a little bit loony like the northern lights. It’s a music that orients us anew to the cultural heritage in the great coastal forest of the Northeast Atlantic. Concerts are free, and will be held every Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. through Aug. 14. For the full series line up and rain locations please visit: www.castleton.edu/concerts.

Hundreds of people turn out every year for the Pawlet Fire Department’s annual auction.
Help Continued from front page Thursday, July 26, at the Pawlet Firehouse, but now is the time for people to contact the department regarding donations. “People have been very generous in the past,” Decker said. “I know we have had cars and four-wheelers in the past. We have had so many different things. You name it, we have gotten it. I think we’re even
going to have a camper to auction this year.” Decker said donations have started slowly this year and that he hopes things will pick up as the auction gets closer. Decker points out there will be food and beverages available before and during the auction, so people can come early. Visitors should bring a chair. Fran Powers, who has been with the department for 35 years, said that the auction, like the fire department’s annual game dinner, has been going on
• Septic Tank Pumping • Portable Toilet Rentals • High Pressure Line Jetting • New Septic Systems Installed • Repairs to Old Systems
for more than four decades. “We’ve sold all sorts of things over the years, from a hand-cranked wall telephone that still worked to boats, cars, firewood that is hand-split and delivered and baked goods. It’s all given to us.” Powers said that so many people come to the event, that food sales top $1,500. “We have hot and sweet sausage, marinated chicken sandwiches and all sorts of other things.” As far as the auction goes, Powers said it can bring in between $8,000 and $14,000. “Last year, I would say we got to $10,000,” said Powers, who spend much of Monday running several trailers loads of donated items from Wells to Pawlet. He said the year the auction hit $14,000, it was because of a donated all-terrain vehicle, which netted $3,600. To donate or to get further information, call the firehouse at 802-325-3222, Powers at 802325-3191 or Decker at 802-3253721.

By Catherine M. Oliverio Shakespeare on Main Street is coming to town to shake things up. In its ninth year of performances, the company is presenting the senior company’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in steampunk fashion, which is described as “Victorian dress with science fiction flair” and the junior company’s “Julius Caesar” in modern dress. Both productions will be held at the Ackley Theatre at Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vt. Intermission for both shows includes refreshments and food. The cost for adults is $12; $8 for students, seniors and military; under 13 for $5; and children younger than 5 are free. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” performances will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 27 through July 29, Friday and Saturday Aug. 3 and 4 at 7 p.m. with a matinee Sunday, Aug 5 at 2 p.m. “Julius Caesar” productions will be Saturday and Sunday, July 28 through 29, Saturday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. with an evening performance at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2.

Thanks from Wells library
The Wells Village Library Board of Trustees and librarian Joanne Van Meter would like to thank the many volunteers who helped us at the annual book sale which was held on July 14 at the Modern Woodsman Building in Wells. We want to express very special thanks to all spouses and family members who transported over 250 boxes of books to the MWA building, helped with the final clean-up, and the neighbors and friends of the library. The donations of books, delicious baked goods and items for the white elephant table were certainly appreciated. We would
also like to thank the Modern Woodsman Association for the use of their building. This new location brought many new buyers who were able to locate many great treasures at the sale. The Book and Bake sale is our only fundraiser for the library. This sale enables the library to purchase books for the library, our local Wells Village books club and patron requests as well as provide the summer reading club program for the children. Volunteers are an important part of our success. We could not run the sale without them! Joanne Van Meter

TOWN & COUNTRY AUCTION
For both productions, the audience will be on stage with all the action happening around them. “Julius Caesar” will be performed with the junior company in modern dress. “They are diligently preparing quite a mature production,” Meitrott said. “These young actors have gained insight beyond their years, teasing text out of the Bard. The infusion of the emotion with meaning with acting, as adults will amaze the audience. The level of sophistication and the nuances that
these young actors will express will keep the audience rapt with attention. The company is now in its third year and starting to grow roots that are nurturing an ensemble of great heart, compassion and willingness to risk.” Carlson explained that the steampunk fashion was heavily inspired by Jules Verne, a science fiction writer. “I’ve loved the Victorian Era and its novels since I was a kid,” she said. “I’ve always enjoyed the visual aesthetic of the time, how even everyday objects had some elegant flair. When I became aware of steampunk, I finally had a name to put to a style that I loved.” “The character Oberon, the king of the sprites, is my favorite creation. Mostly because of the wig, which is wool, hand rolled. Every single dread is silver dyed with rooster feathers and metal wire.” “I portray Cobweb, one of the sprites. I like her because she’s creepy. It’s always fun to play a creepy character.”

The Fair Haven Town Green will be aglitter next weekend with the sheen of freshly waxed chrome and candy-colored paint jobs as the Vermont Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual car show. The Classic Auto and Bike Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. Spectators will have the opportunity to view a variety of cars, trucks, and motorcycles spanning the past 80 years of automotive history. Old race cars, muscle cars, coupes, Jeeps, trucks and HarleyDavidsons are some of the vehicles that will be on display. “We’ve had cars from the
’20s and ’30s right on through to some that are only a few years old,” said Kerry Fowler, president of the chamber. Unlike many car shows that are split into different classes, the Lakes Region event is an open class show, meaning every vehicle competes for awards against every other vehicle entered in the show. Organizers will hand out 25 different plaques, including several reserved strictly for motorcycles. Fowler said the number of vehicles entered in this year’s show will be largely dependent on the weather. He said last year’s show attracted about 130 different cars and if there are clear skies, they may see more than

Laura Roth to perform solo country show this weekend A whole group of famous female country singers will appear in the person of Laura Roth this weekend at the Whitehall Armory. The Bridge Theatre will present Roth in “The 1960’s Grand Ol’ Opry” at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 21. A veteran cabaret singer and comedian, Roth will perform as Brenda Lee, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline in this one-person show. Roth has appeared on television, radio, and the stage in a variety of singing and acting roles. She has studied the mannerisms and styles of some of the most iconic female performers from the 20th and 21st centuries and has 125 costumes and dozens of characters whom she portrays on stage, including Cher, Barbra Streisand, Betty
Grable, Liza Minelli, Mae West and many more. Tickets for the show are on sale at the Wood Theater in Glens Falls and can be purchased through the theater’s online box office. Tickets will also be available at the door the day of the performance. Prices range from $15 to $19, and food and refreshments will be available. Following Roth’s performance, the cabaret season continues with the Matt Maguire Jazz Quartet at 7:30 p.m. on July 28, and Paul Stillman as Benjamin Franklin at 2 p.m. on Aug. 4. The latter show will benefit local Boy Scout Troop 83. For more information, call Martin Kelly, Bridge Theatre’s artistic director, at 874-0800, or by email at markell2@localnet. com.

Steve Jones is all for any contest that’s going to let him take a walk in the woods on his 100-acre property in Pawlet. “This time of year, it’s so busy here, I’ll take any excuse to go for a walk in the woods,” said Jones, whose Mettowee Mill Nursery is sponsoring the “Biggest Hardwood Tree in Pawlet” contest and will give a $25 gift certificate to the winner. “I’m pretty familiar with my acreage, and I know there are three or four trees up there I want to look for.” Jones figures he’ll start with trees of about three feet in girth, but he thinks the winning tree may be four feet around or bigger. “That’s what I would expect it will take,” he said. “There are some pretty big maples and oaks out there.” The contest is the idea of local farmer Charlie Mason, who saw an ad for a similar contest in Londonderry and liked the idea. “I said to myself, ‘Gee, we ought to do that.’ I thought it was be a great activity to get Pawlet’s attention. I was thinking we could do hardwoods this year and softwoods next year. I am hoping there

will be a lot of people out in their woods looking for trees. It will be fun. “I know that now that I’m conscious of it, I’m looking at my trees and my neighbors’ trees.” Jones and Mason said they expect the largest trees will likely be maples or oaks, though there are other hardwoods out there, such as cherry, ash and birch.

Waterfowl season meetings in NY and VT slated for Aug. Duck and goose hunters from New York and Vermont are encouraged to attend meetings next month on Lake Champlain’s waterfowl hunting season. Under federal regulations, waterfowl seasons, bag limits and shooting hours in the Lake Champlain Zone must be uniform throughout the entire zone. Therefore, waterfowl seasons in New York’s portion of the Lake Champlain Zone must be identical to the waterfowl season in Vermont’s portion of the Zone. Comments received at the August meetings, as well as input and recommendations from the
Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation will be reviewed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board. The New York meeting will be on Aug. 7 at the Skenesborough Rescue Squad Building. The Vermont meeting will be on Aug 8 at the University of Vermont’s Billings Lecture Hall. Both meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. The meetings are organized by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

title. It is a rematch of an eight-round split decision win by Hallback in Albuquerque, N.M., in December 2010. “We wanted to give the members of our club top entertainment as part of their membership and pro boxing was one of my priorities,” said Greg Gross, promoter and owner of the Whitehall Athletic Club, in a release. “We decided to put on a world title fight as part of the first boxing card to show all potential Whitehall Athletic Club members and
boxing fans, both locally and around the world, that we are serious about the club and the quality of all our events. I think the Hallback-Cisneros match-up is proof of that.” The rest of the card is expected to be announced later this summer. The Aug. 24 card will be available on www. WhiteHallAthleticClub.com, LDLTV and UStream. Bill Calogero will call the action ringside. For more information, including tickets, visit www. WhitehallAthleticClub.com or call 832-3662.

Chuck Laramie has always enjoyed cemeteries. During high school Laramie spent his summers working in one. He mowed the lawns and clipped around the stones before there were weed whackers and helped out during burials Laramie, who teaches history courses at Proctor Junior/ Senior High School, is also attracted to cemeteries for the stories they tell. So it’s not so strange that while cleaning family headstones in a local cemetery he decided it might be a service he could offer to other families, so he started Laramie’s Monument and Headstone Care. “There are so many headstones in family plots that are covered by moss, pine needles, dirt, and other debris, they are no longer readable,” he said. “Cemeteries are not places that most people think about except on Memorial Day or perhaps on the anniversary of a loved one’s death.” Laramie said many family plots are neglected because family members have relocated. In today’s world families are wildly dispersed. “The most neglected headstones are those of relatives who passed away in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The only living relatives who even vaguely remember them are now in their 80s and 90s, and are too old to maintain the headstones.” This is where Laramie comes in. For a small fee, $75 per year,

Deadline extended at Carving Studio The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center has extended the deadline for submissions to SculptFest2012 until Friday, Aug.3. The annual event has featured site-specific sculptural installations from regional, national and international sculptors since 1998.

Guest curator Adam Frelin (SUNY Albany) has announced the theme “Keep On Keepin’ On”
old when Davey Crockett was killed at the Alamo. “It’s just the way my mind works,” Laramie said. “It gets me thinking of what it must have been like back then.” Laramie has also done volunteer work in area cemeteries and knows how hard it is for those working there just to keep up with the mowing and funeral services, let alone really maintain the individual family plots. “There are literally thousands of family plots where the monuments and headstones are so covered with moss and other debris they’re no longer discernable to the human eye,” Laramie said. It’s easy to see that Laramie takes pleasure in what he’s doing by the care he takes around the family plot he’s working on. “I love cemeteries,” Laramie said. “There’s a sense of peace you find when you are walking in them.” There are plenty of plots to maintain in the cemeteries located around Rutland County but Laramie said he is willing to travel most anywhere if someone really wants that family plot brought back to life. He said he also has customers from as far away as Florida, California and Washington, D.C. “People that relocated have been looking for something like this and it’s really right up my alley,” he said. Laramie can be reached at home at 802-265-3538 on his cell phone at 802-353-7184 or you can email him at chucklaram@aol. com. He can also be found on Facebook at Laramie’s Monument and Headstone Care.
