Castleton musical satirizes politics, capitalism By Andrew Muse The Castleton Theater Department will satirize the world of politics and capitalism during its performance of “Urinetown: The Musical,” which will be staged beginning this weekend. The musical has been around since

2001 when it got its start in New York City at the New York Fringe Festival, moved to Off-Broadway soon after, then finally made its way to Broadway where it stayed for three years putting on over 1,000 shows.

Maps are available at any Main Street business in the village. Today’s maple producers carry on a Vermont tradition that goes back to Native American times. For Pam Green and her husband Richard, sugaring is a family tradition. The Greens, who have about 5,000 taps, have been sugaring together for 40 years.

as far away as Washington and Texas. He said several had years of experience or library science degrees. But after discussing the pros and cons of each candidate and passing out slips, the board unanimously voted for Palulis. “It seems like it was meant to be this way,” he said, addressing her. “I realized that you really wanted this job.” Though she doesn’t yet have a library certification, Palulis has relevant experience; she has a master’s degree in special education. She has been working at Mettawee Community School in West Pawlet for three years and therefore knows many local families and chil-

dren and is also a life coach. Munson said Harry Van Meter, whose wife was previously the Wells librarian, told him about meeting Palulis recently. “She is very energetic and has a real vision for what she wants to accomplish with the library and is excited about the prospect of getting her library certification,” he told Munson. Last Tuesday, her first day on the job, she appeared comfortable interacting with and checking out books for children at the library. As library director she will wear many hats, checking out books as the least of them. She will also organize programs,

write grants, update the website and other social media and oversee community use of the building. She said one of her immediate goals is to bring in teens to the library through game and movie nights and other alternatives. Additionally, she might change the library’s hours a bit in response to the community’s requests.

Between the two showings, the 10-minute short film “The Magical Maple Tree” will be screened. In the afternoon, the Tiny Theatre will screen the Oscarwinning animated film “Frozen” at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 9 p.m. All showings

While she compared a tree being tapped to a human giving blood, the Greens still tap conservatively. “We’re very conscious in practicing sustainability,” she said. “Most trees only have one tap, unless it’s a really huge tree and then it’s maybe two.” For the Maple Fest, the Greens will offer guided tours of the sugarhouse so people can learn about the entire process. Depending on the snow cover, people will be able to hike their nature trail, and of course, there will be plenty of

Musical Continued from front page “It strays from the classic musical structure of one main couple with other lesser couples by having multiple main couples contributing to the play,” Castleton Theater Director Harry McEnerny said. “It also pokes fun at politics of the rich through song; it’s a really fun play.” The play is set in ‘Everytown,’ an imaginary place that is symbolic of a regular town in the U.S. Following a 20-year drought, the water is very scarce and the wealthy have taken control of all public restrooms, making them pay-to-use, and making it illegal to have a private bathroom. Wealthy businessman and owner of Urine Good Company, Caldwell B. Caldwell is the man behind the idea of the pay-to-use public bathrooms. Young hero Bobby Strong, an assistant custodian at the filthiest urinal in town, is resistant to Caldwell’s idea and with help from his love interest, who happens to be Caldwell’s daughter Hope, starts a revolution against the pay-to-use system. “I really enjoy the political commentary and that it is far away from being a classical musical,” Jeff Blanchette, who plays Bobby in the play, said. “It’s what I would call a postmodern musical, it is aware of the structure of the classical musical but goes against it, it’s surely not what you expect it to be.” Throughout the play, Officer Lockstock and Little Sally narrate the play for the audience. “The musical really has all the elements from humor to drama and a lot of satire,” Hayley Ryan, who plays Hope in the play, said. “It’s really different because it takes elements from other musical classics and pokes fun at them.” A theme througout the play is that ‘no one is innocent,’ the

reason for the water shortage is because everyone was so wasteful and took for granted what they had until it was gone. Another is greed, with the wealthy only wanting to get richer by charging money for utilities and making it against the law to go to the bathroom. “It’s very entertaining and covers many issues in the world today,” Castleton actress Victoria Phillips said. “There is a big socio-economic issue in

Poetry Slam April 4 in Brandon Students to perform in Middletown Springs Compass Music and Arts Center will celebrate National Poetry Month with a number of poetry-inspired events it has dubbed Poetry Rocks. On Friday, April 4 from 7 to 9 p.m., local poets, musicians and dramatists are invited to read and perform their favorite pieces during a Poetry Slam/ Open Mic Night. At 2:30 p.m. on Sundays April 13 and 27, guests can share their favorite poem during Poetry Unplugged. Since 1996, poetry has been celebrated nationally each April through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events. The Academy of American Poets established National Poetry Month “to widen the attention of individ-


uals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern.” Guests may bring their own drinks. These events are free and open to the public. However, a collection will be taken to support the opening of the Green Mountain Poets House within the Compass Music and Arts Center and a reading/activity room for children up to the age of 10. The Compass Music and Arts Center is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located in Park Village at 333 Jones Dr. in Brandon. For more information, visit

Students at the Middletown Springs Elementary School have been firing up their creative energy all week as they worked with the school’s artistin-residence, musician and performance artist Melissa Chestnut-Tangerman. The fruits of their labor will be unveiled on Friday, March 21 at 7 p.m., as they present “Farmers, Food and Family,” an original performance based on the area’s farming heritage and their family history. This is Middletown Springs’ eighth annual artist-in-residence program, said Kathy Doyle. It was founded by the school’s Friends for Education parent’s group as a way of bringing a new experience to the students.

“We thought it would be nice to have an artist present a program for the students for one week,” said Doyle. To connect the students and their work to the community, the school hosts a senior citizen and grandparent’s lunch and performance on Friday. In the evening, there will be a community potluck dinner at 6 p.m. and a full performance at 7 p.m. at the school. “Melissa has been working with the kids all week,” said Doyle. She said that the artist thought it would be nice to celebrate the farming background of many of the students, along with their family history. “The performance celebrates how we are all linked to farming,” said Doyle. It will also explore the history and importance of food, and

tie in to the school’s lunch program and the school garden. “We’re very excited with what Melissa has to offer,” Doyle said. “She’s very talented, and has a wonderful way of energizing the children.” Doyle noted that ChestnutTangerman has worked with the Rutland Youth Theater and the Long Trail School as well. There is no charge for the performance, but donations will be accepted to help support the school’s artist-in-residence program. Those attending the potluck dinner are asked to bring one of their family’s favorite dishes. For more information about the program or joining the Friends for Education group, contact Kathy Doyle at 235-2098.

Rachel Clark and Bob DeMarco make up this Vermont duo. Bob’s inspiration and love for Celtic music comes from his mother who originally came from County Limerick ,

Ireland. When he was a boy, she frequently sang in Gaelic and played the fiddle and piano. Bob carried on the tradition of playing the fiddle and piano, but has also taken on the guitar and bouzouki. Coming from a family of classical and folk musicians, Rachel plays the Irish flute, penny whistle, accordion and piano. A childhood in Sweden introduced her to Scandinavian music, and she took up Irish music in her teens. Both Bob and Rachel are also members

of the Celtic band, Wind that Shakes the Barley. Blackbird’s album, Whistle & Sing, full of Celtic, Scandinavian and original music, was honored with the Tammie Award for 2013 Best Traditional Album.

No gluten, please! When Shelley Fairbanks started losing a lot of weight and experiencing severe stomach pains her junior year of high school, her doctors were perplexed.

Less sugar, please! Many people have a love-hate relationship with sugar. They may love how it tastes, but they also may hate the effects sugar can have on their bodies. As a result, many men and women would love to reduce their sugar consumption. The American Heart Association reports that the average adult in the United States consumes 22 teaspoons of added sugar every day, which equals 150 pounds per year. Teenagers consume even more, averaging 34 teaspoons every day. According to Statistics Canada, Canadians consume an average of 110 grams, or 26 teaspoons, of sugar daily. These numbers are

Gluten Continued from front page unlike more acute allergies, such as peanuts. Rota-Poulin, who also has a glutenfree cookbook and cooking show, said other than minor or major stomach pain or problems, symptoms can include light brain fog, bloating and heavy fatigue. She said the causes of the intolerance or Celiac disease aren’t certain, but she adheres to popular belief that a prevalence of refined, processed foods might be to blame. A recent study pub-

lished in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Toxicology by Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stephanie Seneff showed a correlation between the increased prevalence of Celiac disease and gluten intolerance and the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, a popular herbicide. “There’s a lot of changes and modifications to our foods. Is it just because we eat too much refined flower, refined processes, bleaching processes? Artificial colors and flavors and preservatives?” she asked. Fairbanks said she has heard a theory about wheat being so genetically altered nowadays that humans’ gut bacteria can’t handle it.

The good news is in most cases, gluten intolerance or even Celiac disease can be treated by removing gluten from one’s diet. However, Rota-Poulin pointed out that gluten is often hidden in unlikely foods or items—from medication to turkey to shampoo. Even products labeled gluten-free often contain derivatives or were processed in a facility that could lead to heavy cross-contamination. “It’s overwhelming at first, but once you know you can fly through it,” she said of dealing with intolerance. Both she and Fairbanks offered tips for those who think or know they have a gluten allergy. “If anyone thinks they have an intol-

erance, make sure you get all the tests— blood, endoscopy and genetic, because I had Crohn’s that went diagnosed for a long time,” Fairbanks said. Rota-Poulin had several suggestions as well. n Make sure you have a great doctor that listens to you, and know your body. n If you know you have a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease, “don’t dim the lights”—take it on. Don’t cheat or you’ll cause yourself pain and damage. n Never assume something is glutenfree, even if it should be. Contact a manufacturer to make sure a product is certified. n Join a group; it’s free and it’s great

What does a gluten free diet mean? Dietary fads come and go, but the gluten-free movement is one nutritional trend that seems to have staying power. The gluten-free diet was once largely exclusive to sufferers of Celiac disease, a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine, preventing it from absorbing parts of food the body needs to stay healthy. That damage is the byproduct of the body’s reaction to gluten, a term used to describe proteins found in specific grains. But while the gluten-free diet remains a necessity for those who cannot tolerate gluten, nowadays even nonsufferers are embracing the gluten-free diet for a variety of reasons. One such reason is non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, or NCGS. Though NCGS is not as severe as Celiac disease, research has suggested that a gluten-free diet can relieve NCGS symptoms, which include abdominal pain and headaches. Allergies are another reason some people may opt for a gluten-free diet. Unlike Celiac disease or NCGS, both of which are digestive system responses to gluten, wheat allergy is an immune-system response and, like other allergies, can be outgrown. But until a wheat allergy is outgrown, it’s best to avoid foods, including those with gluten, that might trigger an allergic reaction. While a gluten-free diet is a necessity for people with Celiac disease, NCGS or wheat allergies, according to Michell Nacouzi, MD, a primary care physician at Duke Primary Care Brier Creek, it may provide little health benefit to those without such conditions. But that doesn’t mean the popularity of the gluten-free diet is about to wane. Those without a preexisting medical condition who are considering a gluten-free diet anyway should know a few things about this diet before making such a drastic change. n Gluten-free is not easy. Unlike eliminating sugary soft drinks or cutting back on fried foods,

going cold turkey on gluten can be very difficult. Many people who adopt a gluten-free diet find it extremely challenging, as gluten proteins can be found in additives, making something as seemingly simple as reading labels a lot trickier than it looks. Though labels may not list gluten among a product’s ingredients, men and women must be aware of all additives that contain gluten proteins in order to avoid gluten entirely. And while supermarkets are stocking more gluten-free products, shopping for groceries while on a gluten-free diet can be tedious. n Certain foods and drinks must be avoided. Though people considering a gluten-free diet are aware that such a diet requires some sacrifices, they may not know which foods and beverages they will need to avoid until they have instituted the diet. For example, a gluten-free diet excludes any beverages that contain barley, meaning beer cannot be part of a gluten-free diet. Though many gluten-free beers are now on the market, beer afficionados may find such alternatives cannot compare to the real thing. Rye and wheat products also must be avoided, and these include products whose labels list bulgur, durum flour, farina, graham flour, kamut, semolina, and spelt among their ingredients. Though there are now many gluten-free foods on the market, unless labels say gluten-free, the following are a handful of products that should be avoided: n Breads n Cakes and pies n Cereals n Croutons

n French fries n Pastas n Salad dressings n Soy sauce n Soups Many doctors also recommend men and women on a gluten-free diet avoid oats, as they can easily be contaminated with wheat during the growing and processing stages of production. n Be mindful of the dangers of cross-contamination. Cross-contamination can occur during the manufacturing process when gluten-free foods come into contain with foods that contain gluten. Manufacturers typically include the phrase “may contain” on labels as a warning to consumers looking to avoid gluten and other ingredients. When labels include this phrase, there’s a strong chance that cross-contamination has occurred, and such products should be avoided by men and women on gluten-free diets. Cross-contamination also can occur when gluten-free foods are prepared on the same surfaces as foods containing gluten. For example, toasting gluten-free bread in the same toaster as regular bread can easily lead to contamination. Preventing crosscontamination can be a difficult task, and that difficulty merits consideration by people who want to adopt a gluten-free diet. n A gluten-free diet may lead to a vitamin and nutrient deficiency. Grains are often rich in vitamins, and avoiding grains as part of a glutenfree diet can deprive men and women of these vitamins, weakening their bodies as a result. When adopting a gluten-free diet, speak with a dietitian to ensure your diet has enough iron, calcium, fiber, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate. If the diet is lacking, you will need to make adjustments.

Here's some healthy ways to banish belly fat Belly fat is often considered more of a cosmetic issue than a health issue. But few outside of the medical or fitness communities may know that belly fat is not only unsightly but unhealthy as well. Excessive belly fat can increase a person's risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and even certain cancers, including breast cancer and colon cancer. So while many people may want to reduce their belly fat for cosmetic purposes, they can also use improving their overall health as a motivating factor when attempting to trim their waistlines. The following are a few healthy ways to reduce belly fat.

n Adopt a healthy diet. Belly fat is often the first victim when men and women adopt a healthy diet and begin to lose weight. Researcher Kristen Hairston, MD, an assistant professor of endocrinology and metabolism at Wake Forest School of Medicine, found that people who ate 10 grams of soluble fiber per day but made no other changes to their diet built up less fat over time than others. In addition to fiber, you should include fruits, vegetables and lean proteins in your diet. These foods will help you feel more full, which will curb your hunger and, as a result, reduce your caloric intake.

n Get some rest. A good night's sleep, which is at least seven hours of sleep each night, has been shown to reduce fat over an extended period of time. Though the exact relationship between sleep and belly fat is unknown, a lack of sleep can force men and women to look to sugary beverages or snacks to provide a boost during the day. Such drinks and snacks can cause weight gain, especially among those people who routinely fail to get a good night's sleep. n Get off the couch and exercise. Exercise is another effective way to reduce belly fat. Numerous studies have shown the positive effect that daily, vigorous exercise can have on overall

health. For example, a study conducted by researchers at Duke University found that 30 minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise, which includes jogging or working out on a cardiovascular machine, such as an elliptical or a treadmill, four times per week can reduce fat and slow down the buildup of fat over time. Those who want to reduce belly fat will likely need to emphasize vigorous exercise. While those hoping to prevent the buildup of belly fat should know that studies have shown, when coupled with a healthy diet, moderate activity, which includes anything that raises your heart rate, three times per week may be enough to slow down fat buildup.

Do you know the early warning signs of Alzheimer's? Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks neurons and essentially robs people of their memory and language skills. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, there are therapies that can slow its neurological impact. Recognizing the early warning signs of Alzheimer’s can encourage people to begin treatments that can stave off some of the more debilitating symptoms of this disease. Though it’s most common among the elderly, Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging. The Mayo Clinic says that the reasons behind the inception and progression of Alzheimer’s disease are

largely unknown. It is believed damage starts a decade or more before problems become evident. Abnormal deposits of proteins begin to form the amyloid plaques and tau tangles throughout the brain, and these formations are the hallmarks of the disease. Once-healthy neurons gradually begin to lose their efficiency and ability to function and communicate with one another. As more neurons die, entire areas of the brain shrink. The hippocampus, which is the area of the brain essential in forming memories, may soon become compromised. Millions of people in North America are estimated to have Alzheimer’s disease and many others will be diagnosed.

The following are the most common early signs and symptoms of the disease. n Memory loss: According to the Alzheimer’s Organization, early memory loss can include forgetting important dates or repeatedly asking for the same information. Forgetting recently learned information and having to rely increasingly on memory aids is another potential indicator of Alzheimer’s.

n Misplacing items: Everyone loses something at a point in time, but those with Alzheimer’s may put items in unusual places. They may sometimes accuse others of stealing when they cannot retrace their steps and find items. n Decreased judgment: Decision-making abilities may be compromised. A person with Alzheimer’s may take unnecessary risks or give away sums of money.

n Declining cognition: Impaired reasoning or judgment, trouble finding the right words and visual and spatial issues also may be early indicators of Alzheimer’s. n Difficulty completing familiar tasks: Those with Alzheimer’s sometimes have trouble driving to a familiar location or remembering the rules to a favorite game. People who were once good with numbers may now have difficulty balancing their checkbooks, while those who love to cook may have trouble following recipes. n Time confusion: Another indicator of Alzheimer’s disease is losing track of time. One may have trouble understanding something that isn’t happening in the present. Alzheimer’s sufferers often forget where they are and how they got there.

n Mood changes: People with Alzheimer’s may suffer from confusion, suspicious feelings, depression and anxiety. A person may upset easily or become anxious outside of his or her comfort zones. Age and family history of Alzheimer’s disease are the biggest risk factors. The liklihood of developing Alzheimer’s doubles about every five years after age 65, says the Alzheimer’s Organization. In addition, those with a parent, child or sibling who have developed Alzheimer’s are more likely to develop the disease than people with no such family history. A physical and neurological exam, which may include blood tests and brain imaging, will be used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Individuals can learn more by making appointments with their doctors.

How to reduce your risk for Alzheimer's disease Alzheimer’s disease affects millions of people across the globe. In the United States alone, the Alzheimer’s Association estimates one in eight older men and women has the disease, which is the sixth-leading cause of death in the country. Few families have not been affected by Alzheimer’s disease, and many relatives of those with the disease fully understand the role family history can play. Research into the disease is ongoing, and it’s already yielded valuable information that may help reduce the prevalence of this devastating disease in the years to come. One byproduct of researchers’ efforts is the discovery that it may be possible to prevent or delay the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease through the implementation of a combination of healthy lifestyle choices. The following are a few healthy habits that may help men and women reduce their risk for Alzheimer’s. n Exercise regularly. A study conducted by Scottish researchers and published in the journal Neurology in 2012 touted exercise as the most effective way for adults to protect their brains from Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers examined roughly 700 70-year-old participants, all of whom were born in 1936, who were asked to report their levels of physical activity. Each participant then received an MRI at age 73. Those tests revealed that the participants who were more physically active showed less brain shrinkage and fewer white matter lesions, both of which are indicators of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation reports that physical exercise reduces a person’s

risk of developing Alzheimer’s by 50 percent and can even slow further deterioration in those who have already begun to develop the cognitive problems associated with Alzheimer’s. Researchers continue to study the relationship between physical activity and the development ofAlzheimer’s diseases, but the evidence is mounting that regular exercise, regardless of a person’s age, is a great way to reduce risk for Alzheimer’s. n Eat healthy. What you put into your body may also reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. The brain operates at its best when it is fueled with a healthy diet that includes fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy fats and lean protein. A heart-healthy diet is also brain-healthy, and researchers have found a potential link between heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Researcher Larry Sparks of the Sun Health Research Institute in Arizona and formerly of the Kentucky medical examiner’s office studied brain tissues with a goal of finding early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. He discovered that those who had the telltale plaques of Alzheimer’s disease also had heart disease, suggesting heart disease may be a forerunner of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association feels this link between the two will only grow stronger in the years to come, suggesting that a hearthealthy diet that reduces a person’s risk of heart disease may also reduce the risk forAlzheimer’s down the road. More information on a heart-healthy diet is available at

the least of which is that research has indicated the brain functions better when men and women are not isolated from others. Memory and cognition are stronger when people remain socially active and engaged in their society, so retirees should look for ways to revive their social lives as a means to protecting their brains from the onset of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Alzheimer’s disease remains an enigma in many ways. But ongoing research continues to show that men and women can take measures to actively prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and improve their quality of life as a result.

stay sharp, and men and women who find ways to stay mentally stimulated can reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Embrace activities that require communication and interaction with others, and find time for additional tasks that can stimulate your brain. These may include studying a foreign language, reading, trying your hand at mentally stimulating puzzles such as crosswords or Sudoku, and other activities that emphasize organization. Such activities are essentially workouts for your brain that can help it stay sharp as you age.

Sugar Continued from front page more than twice the amount of sugar a person should be eating. Healthy fruits, vegetables and some dairy products each contain sugar. But refined sugar is what can compromise a person’s health. When more than 10 percent of a person’s total calories come from added or refined sugar, this can prove harmful to both the mind and body. University of California, San Francisco researchers estimate that the 130,000 new cases of diabetes documented between 1990 and 2000 could be attributed to the increase of sugarsweetened drinks. Those who drink 1 to 2 servings of sweetened beverages are 26 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetimes than those who avoid such drinks. According to a 2008 study published

in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, high-glycemic foods, or those that are quickly broken down into glucose by the body, can lead to elevated rates of breakouts and acne. That’s because sugary foods and drinks may fuel inflammation and the production of excess sebum in the skin, resulting in pimples. When a person consumes more sugar than he or she needs, the excess may be stored in the body as triglycerides, a type of blood fat. Both high triglycerides and low HDL levels contribute to the hardening of your arteries. This condition increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and heart attack. Information published in the British Journal of Psychiatry indicates sugar may be responsible for mood swings and other mental disorders. Fluctuations in sugar levels can affect mood and metabolism. Fortunately, men and women looking to curtail their sugar consumption can do so in a variety of ways.

n Enjoy a sugar-free or low-sugar breakfast. You may begin the day with a sugar rush if you consume too much sugar at the breakfast table. This will inevitably result in a sugar crash, after which you may overeat or gravitate toward more sugary products. Starting the day with whole grains and lean proteins is a healthier way to fuel the body at breakfast time. n Stock up on fruits and vegetables. When you crave something sweet, grab a piece of fruit or a sweet vegetable, such as corn or beets. You will be consuming fewer calories and eating less processed sugar. n Opt for whole grains. Whole grains have a lower glycemic index than refined grains, which means they won’t turn into a sugary powder keg in your body. They also will help you to feel fuller longer, which reduces the temptation for overeating. Use whole grain pastas and breads when cooking, and opt for

these foods when dining out. n Research the amount of sugar in foods. Read labels and ingredients to determine if sugar is hiding in the foods and beverages you consume. Anything that ends with the suffix “ose” is a derivative of sugar. Some restaurants will even add sugar to foods that don’t need them to make them irresistible and addicting, which is often the case with kids’ meals. n Cut sweetened drinks from your diet entirely. Many people consume a substantial amount of sugar in their beverages. To avoid overconsumption of sugar, opt for water, unsweetened teas or diluted 100 percent fruit juice if you need something sweet. By cutting down on sugar, a person can gradually reduce his or her dependency on the sweet stuff and not even miss it. This may lead to improved dental health and a host of other medical benefits.

Discover the nutritive power of apples Who has not heard the old adage, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away"? It may seem unlikely that one fruit could be so effective at maintaining good health, but apples really are a super food. Apples are a member of the Rose family and are related to pears, peaches, apricots and plums. Though considered a fall fruit, apples can be enjoyed year-round thanks to commercial food production and importing. Apart from being sweet, sometimes sour and refreshingly crisp, apples pack a number of nutritional benefits. Research has shown that apples can help to reduce a person's risk of heart disease and help those with diabetes. In addition, apples can help

fight cancer and prevent dental problems. According to new information from longrunning studies published in the British Medical Journal, eating at least two servings a week of whole fruit, particularly apples, blueberries or grapes, reduces a person's risk for type 2 diabetes by around 23 percent. Apples are high in many antioxidants and, as a result, this makes them especially valuable at fighting illness. For example, the disease-fighting compounds in antioxidants have been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers by neutralizing free radicals. Apples also are very high in fiber. Fiber is needed to help a person feel full and can also regulate digestive function. Fiber also can

help reduce cholesterol by preventing the buildup of cholesterol-causing plaques in the blood vessels, improving cardiovascular function and possibly reducing risk of a stroke as a result. In addition to working their magic inside of the body, apples can have a noticeable impact on physical appearance as well. Apples are sometimes referred to as "nature's toothbrushes" because they can brighten and clean the teeth. The crisp, abrasive texture stimulates the gums and removes debris from the teeth. What's more, the natural mild acidity of apples helps to stimulate saliva production that can rinse away germs that lead to plaque.

An apple weighs in at under 100 calories per serving, making them a low-fat and ideal snack any time of the day. Because they are low in calories and full of fiber, apples can help men and women maintain a healthy weight. Because apples can be plagued by insects and parasites, some growers repeatedly spray the trees with pesticides. It is adviseable to buy organic apples to avoid many of the pesticide dangers and to be able to safely eat the apples raw. There are more than 7,000 varieties of apples on the market today. With such variety, availability and health benefits, apples make a convenient and nutritious snack.

Did you know? People frequently take human hair for granted, especially if they have it in abundance. While hair can help keep your head warm, there's more to hair than what meets the eye. For a healthy individual with no hair diseases, hair is very strong with enormous tensile strength. In fact, human hair is about as strong as copper wire of the same diameter. That means one strand of hair can support up to 100 grams in weight. Considering the average head of hair contains about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair in all, the combined strength of human hair could feasibly support up to 12 tons, or the equivalent of two African elephants.

‘Belles’ coming to W. Rutland next month The Marble Valley Players will stage “Belles” early next month in West Rutland. Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on April 4 and 5 and at 2 p.m. on April 6 at the West Rutland Town Hall Theater. The play, written by Mark Dunn is a comedy told in “two acts and 45 phone calls.” The play is an ensemble piece set in the late 1980s, back when phones were plugged into the wall and the only cell phones were in a bag. The play visits six southern sisters, who, over the course of

a weekend, and seeks to bridge the physical and emotional distance between them via the telephone. In the process, they try to come to terms with their dysfunctional family history. The gold standard among Mr. Dunn’s many plays about southern women, Director Nancy Manney compares this play to her previous production of “Steel Magnolias.” “I have tried to do shows in the past that reflect human trials and tribulations, especially those that concern women. Of course, I want that to be done

with humor, because I believe that all that we live, whether good or bad, has to be lightened up!” Manney has cast six veteran actresses for these wonderful characters. They are: Michelle Gillette, Julie Redington, Jen Sanford, Judi Tompkins, Gena Wener, and Beth Wolven. Tickets are $15 and are sold at the door on performance dates; on line at; or at the Paramount Regional Box Office, 30 Center St. Rutland. 775-0903.

Man seeks assistance on march to D.C. A local man is seeking help as he prepares to embark on a spiritual journey to the nation’s capital. Don Duncan is looking for volunteers to assist him on his walk to Washington D.C. later this spring. He Duncan is seeking the loan of a van or station wagon as a support vehicle and

a driver. He is also looking for information on churches or organizations along the route that may be willing to help. Duncan, who constructed Christ’s House of Angels in Wells, plans to walk to Washington where he will ask the nation to “return to God again and receive mercy, grace and healing.”

Duncan said America was founded upon God’s ideals, which enabled the country to become a global power in less than 200 years. He says the country is suffering because it has turned away from God’s teachings. Duncan expects the walk to take more than a month. Anyone who would like to support Duncan, can call him at 645-0708.

Castleton Lions Club looking for members The Castleton Lions Club is looking for a few good men and women. The club is seeking civicminded men and women who would like to join the organization and make a difference in the community. “Our club gives members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends and become leaders in the community.

said. The Castleton Lions Club is the local branch of Lions International, a 1.3 million member global service organization. The mission of Lions International is the prevention of blindness and visual impairment. The local club is 60 members strong and provides help to the local community in a variety of ways. Over the past six months, $2,000 was given to local families for health and hardship reasons; over $8,000

was given to various functions, including $6,500 in college scholarships. The community was given approximately $13,000 for various requests and needs including a playground area at Crystal Beach. The sight and hearing committee also distributed over $800 for glasses, eye examinations and hearing aids. Anyone who is interested in joining is encouraged to Aleda Dutton at 468-3110 or at 2365825.

Shakespeare on Main Street has announced auditions for the summer 2014 Junior Shakespeare Academy. The academy is for teens (ages 12-18) to whet their ability, and to nurture their talent and sense of responsibility, so that they may step into challenging adult theatrical roles and explore the complexities of human nature. This five-week experience of intense coaching comprises acting; voice development including articulations, enunciation, and vocal production; and understanding how to work with Shakespeare’s text. The program also makes use of Comedia dell’arte, a theatrical form characterized by improvised dialogue and working within a genre of colorful, stylized characters that emerged in northern Italy in the fifteenth century. It allows the actor to evolve a distinct set of attributes— characteristic speech, gestures, and individual body movement. The academy is purposely geared to take youth into an arena where they see, feel, and physically take on adult roles with all its strengths, vigor, its deceptions and failures. Auditions for the academy will be on March 29, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Inn at Willow Pond, 74 Willow Pond Road, Manchester; and March 30, 1 to


3 p.m., at Rhythm Hall, 2nd Floor, Building 5, Howe Center (1 Scale Ave) in Rutland. Young women and young men should come prepared with a short monologue of their choice from Richard II. The academy program begins June 23, Monday thru Friday, 2 to 5 p.m., at the Inn at Willow Pond. Tuition for the five weeks is $195; scholarships and multiple enrollment discounts may be available. Performances will be in Poultney, July 26 and 27; Manchester, Aug. 2 and 3; and Brandon, August 9. Artistic Director Gary Meitrott is a former Broadway actor and has more than 10 years of experience teaching and directing Shakespeare. Meitrott’s aim is to help actors plumb the depths of Shakespeare’s work to bring out the deeper meaning of the Bard’s words and how they relate to our modern era. Shakespeare’s Richard II examines the conflict between the legal and divine right to rule, and the effectiveness of the ruler, political ambition, and noble intentions. For further information, or if unable to attend any of the audition dates, please contact Artistic Director-Gary Meitrott, at 282-2581, or info@
