Maple Weekend You still have time to enjoy the region’s maple industry Vermont’s Maple Open House Weekend may have passed but New York’s will continue for a week longer. Locally, Maple Open Houses in Washington County, N.Y., will continue this weekend, as local maple producers invite area residents to tour their sugarhouses and see how maple syrup is made on March 29 and 30. “We’re inviting area families to come and experience first-hand the sights, smells and sounds of maple sugar-making,” said David Campbell, a Salem producer and president of the Upper Hudson Maple Producers Association. Signs will be placed along roadsides to direct motorists to the sugarhouses, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Friends organize basket raffle for sick friend A basket raffle will be held this weekend in benefit of a former Hampton, N.Y., man who is battling health complications from the flu.

Ballard went to the hospital earlier this year complaining of flu-like symptoms. He was diagnosed with swine flu and pneumonia. His symptoms, however, continued to worsen and he was transported to a hospital in Boston where doctors placed him in an induced coma. “He emerged from the coma last week, but there’s a long road ahead of him,” Lisa Thayer a friend and organizer of the basket party, said. Proceeds from the event will be used to defray medical costs an help his family, including a new born daughter born while he was in the coma, travel back

and forth from their home in New Hampshire to the hospital in Boston. Sunday’s basket party will begin at noon and drawings will be held at 2 p.m. Thayer said there will be more than 125 baskets as well as door prizes and raffle items, including a $1,000 security system.

Bee expert to speak in Poultney A program on how residents can help local bee populations will be presented next month at the Poultney Public Library. Ross Conrad will present “Honey Bee Health: How You Can Help” at the library on Friday, April 11 at 6 p.m. This is a free program. For more information call the library at 802-287Ross Conrad 5556. The honeybee faces many affronts to its immune system in these days of Varroa mites and pesticide overload. The so-called “Colony Collapse Disorder” now facing beekeepers makes it all the more imperative that local beekeepers, farmers, and gardeners learn healthy ways to assist the honeybee. Conrad will share the “how to” of numerous techniques to keep bees alive despite the numerous stresses on their health. Topics covered include: Organic Beekeeping, Managing Farms and Yards to Provide Bee Forage and Habitat and Home

Owner Activities to Help Our Pollinators. Conrad learned his craft from the late Charles Mraz, world renowned beekeeper and promoter of apitherapy and Charlie’s son Bill. Conrad is a former president of the Vermont Beekeeper’s Association, a regular contributor to Bee Culture The Magazine of American Beekeeping, and author of Natural Beekeeping: Organic Approaches To Modern Apiculture published by Chelsea Green. Conrad has given bee-related presentations and led organic beekeeping workshops and classes throughout North America for many years. His beekeeping business, Dancing Bee Gardens, supplies friends and neighbors with honey and candles among other bee related products, and provides bees for Vermont apple pollination in spring.

The cast of Urinetown during a performance last week.

CSC to stage final performances of ‘Urinetown’ There are still several days left to enjoy Castleton State College’s production of “Urinetown: The Musical.” The Theater Arts and Music Department’s production made its Castleton debut last Friday and the cast will stage performances tonight and Saturday at 7 p.m. in Casella Theater on campus. 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.

“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 in the town, 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 bath-

room or to go to the bathroom in the street. 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. Admission to the show is $15; $10 for members of the college community.

GMC to stage comedy, ‘Noises Off’ this weekend The Green Mountain College Theater department will present the comedy “Noises Off ” on March 28 and 29 at 7 p.m. at the Clara Hitchcock Fitzpatrick Jones Concert Hall (Ackley Auditorium). Written by the English playwright Michael Frayn, the play is frequently called the funniest farce ever written. The cast of nine characters consists entirely of Green Mountain College students and alumnus Gordon Ells ’12, who plays the role of Lloyd Dallas. The action begins with a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing On.” Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all fig-

Marble Valley Players to stage ‘Belles’ April 4-6 Remember the days when the phone was plugged into the wall? The Marble Valley Players take a trip back to the pre-cell phone era when they present the comedy “Belles” at the West Rutland Town Hall Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 4 and 5, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 6. Written by Mark Dunn, “Belles” is a poignant, powerful comedy set in the late 1980s, as six southern sisters spend a weekend trying to bridge the physical and emotional distance between them via the telephone. Six veteran actresses portray the colorful characters: Michelle Gillette, Julie Redington, Jen Sanford, Judi Tompkins, Gene Wener and Beth Wolven.

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,” she said. “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!” During intermission, the audience will be treated to refreshments and a performance of the Bell Ringers. Tickets for “Belles” are $15 and will be available at the door, online at www.paramountlive.org, or at the Paramount Regional Box Office, located at 30 Center Street in Rutland. Call 775-0903 for more information.

PHS student wins outdoor writing contest A junior at Poultney High School entered the winning essay among New England schools in the New England Outdoor Writers Association 2014 Youth Writing Contest. Emma Dailey also won the Vermont State Senior category for her essay, “Falcon, Up Close and Personal.” She will be awarded a $275 prize, an NEOWA certificate and will have her winning essay published in the Northwoods Sporting Journal, a New England-wide outdoor publication. The 16-year-old writer penned an eloquent essay on a peregrine falcon, vivid in description and ending with a heck of a surprise. Dennis Jensen, the NEOWA

coordinator of the Vermont contest, said that Dailey’s accomplishment is significant. “With her sweet essay, Emma topped a large number of entries from Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts, as well as home-schooled contestants,” he said. “Emma wrote the best essay in Vermont and then took top honors in New England. This is a big deal, for Poultney, for Vermont and for the NEOWA.” Alex White, 13, a seventhgrader from Poultney High School, won the junior category for the Vermont contest and with it a $125 cash prize. The junior contest is open to all Vermont students in Grades 6-8, while the senior division

takes in Grades 9-12. Both Poultney students will be honored at a ceremony, held at the high school, in the near future. The state and at-large winners were selected by panels of local outdoor writers, then submitted for the New England judging, which was done by a panel of distinguished NEOWA judges. The NEOWA is a group of professional outdoor communicators dedicated to promoting and supporting conservation, natural resources and our outdoor heritage. NEOWA, formed in 1942, is the oldest regional outdoor writers’ organization in America and is a nonprofit, professional and educational organization.

mended for all, lets them know about their educational options and assists them in making sound decisions about their high school courses and experiences. The day will include a number of group and experiential activities led by Castleton State College Students. In addition, the students will also take tours of the campus.

Twig remembers

Bob Murphy

The fourth annual raptor festival will feature live flight demonstrations, nature walks, sleigh rides and more.

Winter Raptor Fest this weekend By Linda Ellingsworth Raptors rule this weekend in Fort Edward, N.Y., when the fourth annual Winter Raptor Fest takes place on Saturday, March 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gallup Ridge Farm on Blackhouse Road. Presented by the Friends of the IBA, the Raptor Fest features live flight demonstrations by hawks and owls, a guided snowshoe walk, and a short-eared owl watch. The event has grown remarkably in just a short time. “We estimate that 1,000 people attend each day,” said Clifford Oliver, media representative for the Friends of the IBA. “It’s grown so huge – there’s a hunger for people to be with nature.” The event also includes various kids’ activities, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and food vendors. Some of the groups presenting during the weekend include Adirondack Raptors with freeflight demos, Adirondack

Wildlife Refuge & Rehab Center, the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, and the New York State Wildlife Rehab Council. Oliver emphasized the unique opportunity this event provides to see the raptors in free flight. “It’s awesome to see them flying around,” he said. “With these birds, there is an element of danger, and they are also unbelievably gorgeous.” The weekend opens with a Guided Snowshoe Walk at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. Pre-registration is necessary to take part in the walk. To register, call Rich at 518623-2587. New this year is a “For the Birds” Gift Shop and a Raptor Photo Booth, where visitors can get their photo taken with a live bird of prey. In addition, wildlife photographer Dr. Gordon Ellmers will be on hand from noon to 2 p.m. both days to sign prints of his photos. “The photography of Dr. Ellmers is phenomenal,” said Oliver, who noted that some of

Ellmers’ limited edition prints will be for sale. Also new is the Raptor Photo Booth, in which visitors can have their photo taken with a live bird of prey. Saturday’s events include a presentation by the New York State Wildlife Rehab Council at 10 a.m., a presentation by the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) at 11 a.m., an “Adirondack Raptors” free-flight demo at 1 p.m. and a Short-eared Owl Watch at 5:30 p.m. Preregistration is necessary for the Owl Watch by calling 623-2587. On Sunday, VINS returns at 11 a.m., the Wildlife Institute of Eastern NY presents at noon, and the Adirondacks Raptors program takes place 1 p.m. Other presentations will also take place throughout each day. Admission to the festival is $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. Note that during this weekend, Blackhouse Road will be one way, with entrance from Route 4. For a complete schedule,

When we were Slater freshman, Bob was already a big guy. He didn’t take too much to high school, so after two years, he went into the Army and went to chef school. When he returned from his military stint, he began working in local restaurants. After a fashion, he was running the busy kitchen at Fred Smith’s “Somewhere Restaurant”. Well, tasting and sampling your own cooking will add weight and you’re sure to blossom into a huge man. My brother, Hot Rod, was a “Somewhere” barkeep. When they got the same night off, you would see Bob and Hot Rod out on tour. I mean the local fair

and down to Silver City (Silver Diner) for the big breakfast. James, like his dad and brothers, had a nickname for almost everyone. For his buddy, Big Bob, he borrowed an U.S. Army nickname for chef – mess cook – and came up with “Big Mess”. Never once did I call him that and for two reasons: 1. It was my brother who came up with that one and 2. I always liked to remain on my feet and not on my back. Remember, Big Murph at the time was 6’2 and well over 250lbs. And well, I was still a “Twig”. May God be with you Bob Murphy.

Gary Beam Somewhere back in the 1980s when I was doing interviews for “The Promoter” newspaper (I learned by watching every Barbara Walters and Larry King interview I could) I did one with Gary when he started up a furniture business in Arnold Slate Mill on the corner of River and Depot streets. It had been a dream of Gary’s for years. They were cranking out all kinds of pine furniture for better than three years until the building was leveled by fire. He was devastated. Gary was forced into other kinds of work that took him to

the Rutland area. In those times we were apt to bump into each other almost anywhere and we’d catch up on things. It was one of those occasions about three or four months ago at Shaw’s in Fair Haven where he told me he had a form of cancer and was going for a test the next day to see if it was in remission. I was to find out his answer like many others via the obituary page of the Rutland Herald. Here, is another fine gentleman that I called—“friend.” May God be with you, Gary Beam.

Brennan Lecture on April 15, 2014 at 4 p.m. in the Ackley Theater at Green Mountain College. The lecture is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception. Shuman’s lecture, titled “Local Investment: The New Key to Rural Revitalization in Vermont,” will look at the growing global movement towards local community investment through such strategies as crowdfunding, targeted CDs, local investment funds, and self-directed IRAs. Shuman will share specific strategies that small towns in Vermont can use to divert investment dollars from Wall Street to Main Street and thereby support the growth of local economies. The topic resonates with Poultney2020, an ongoing collaboration between the town of Poultney and Green Mountain College. This initiative, articulated in GMC’s long-range strategic plan Sustainability2020, has brought together town volunteers and GMC faculty, staff and students to establish a new arts center (Stone Valley Arts), design a community park on Main Street, and develop a network of multi-use recreational trails within the next year. A leading expert in community economics, Shuman serves as director of Community Portals for Missions Markets, an organization that provides capital market support and technology solutions for socially responsible companies.

Doug Perkins and Jamie Masefield have been playing together for over 25 years.

Duo to perform in Brandon On Saturday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m., Brandon Music welcomes the Doug Perkins and Jamie Masefield Duo. Their shows feature a variety of jazz and bluegrass tunes on mandolin and acoustic guitar, highlighting interactive, communicative play. Playing off and on together for over 25 years, the duo has developed intuitive and virtuosic playing that sets them apart from Nashville and West Coast styles. From their first gig playing together at UVM in 1987, they both took different paths. Jamie lead the international and nationally touring act called the Jazz Mandolin Project, which landed a Blue Note Recording record along with many accolades. With the Jazz Mandolin Project, Jamie offered an entirely new concept of what the mandolin could do, pushing the boundaries with a new innovative sound that

changed the mind of many as to the instrument’s potential. Doug is best known for his experience touring nationally with the band, Smokin’ Grass, which made a name for itself at bluegrass festivals throughout the country in the late 1990s. However, right here in the Green Mountains, he has developed a distinctive, versatile style on acoustic guitar, enabling him to appear with many of the area’s musical juggernauts regardless of their preferred genre. In 2012, Doug recorded and released the Music for Flatop Guitar which featured Jamie and Tyler Bolles. Tickets are $15 with a preconcert dinner available for $20. Call (802)465-4071 or e-mail info@brandon-music.net for information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Rd. Brandon, Vt. 05733. www.brandon-music.net
