Martin Luther King Jr. celebration Monday Green Mountain College invites families of Poultney and the surrounding region to join the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as we come together to honor his legacy on Monday, Jan. 16. Students, staff, and faculty from the college and Poultney High School plan to participate in activities all day. In the morning, interested volunteers may meet at the Cerridewn Farmhouse Community Kitchen to partake in community service activities as a response to Dr. King’s philosophy on service. He once said, “Life’s most per-

sistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’” If you’d like to volunteer, you will be answering this question by crafting and baking for others in need. At 11:15 a.m., everyone is welcome to gather at GMC’s Brennan Circle to prepare for a solidarity march to begin at 11:30 a.m. down Main Street, Poultney, to St. Raphael’s Church. Lyrics to music will be provided, and banners are encouraged. At noon at St. Raphael’s Church, 21 East Main St., after an address and blessing is given, a free community meal will take place.

Whenever we get a spare moment of a new lead comes in, we pick it up and go track that down because we don’t want to lose that information.” “I want to stay positive that he might be still alive out there … alive,” Winchell said, mentioning that her son’s birthday is coming up on Jan. 22. Police determined that Schaff, of Fair Haven, left the former Riverside Pub on Main Street in Granville during the early-morning hours that day. Prior to his disappearance, police said, he was involved in physical altercation with another man at the pub. Witnesses said Schaff ’s glasses had been broken in the fight, but he didn’t suffer any serious injuries. “This was the first time he every really been in Granville to any bars,” Winchell said. She said he son did go out, but would always call her with updates or for a ride if he needed. Winchell said she texted her son around 2 a.m. the day he went missing, asking him about his night, but the response she got back, “Leave me alone,” she didn’t think it was Schaff who responded to her. She responded with a text: “Jonathan, are you alright?” And received nothing back. “I, honest to God, don’t think that Jonathan had his phone at 2 a.m.,” Winchell said. The next morning, after Schaff didn’t return home, Winchell said she received a call from her daughter, Billie Jo Rathbun, who lived in Granville at the time, inquiring if Winchell had seen her son. “I was hysterical … pacing the floor, waiting for her to come get me so we could go find him,” Winchell said. She and her daughter ended up at the Granville Police Station to

Police said, after the fight, Schaff left the bar with a 33-year old woman and 26-yearold man, who had offered to give him a ride. Their vehicle had been parked at Loomis Trucking, just across the New York-border. On the way to the car, the two people with Schaff stopped “for a smoke and to make out” a few hundred yards short of the border, investigators said. Schaff continued on alone. When the couple returned to the route, they could not locate Schaff. They told police they assumed he had found another way home, according to reports. Three days later, Schaff ’s cell phone was found in an abandoned vehicle at Loomis Trucking, but no additional evidence was found. Law enforcement agencies in both states, as well as family

Wilkins said search and rescue, scuba and helicopter teams searched the river and the surrounding area when Schaff went missing, but the quarry, located on Vermont Route 149 in West Pawlet, Vermont, was never thoroughly searched. At the time of Schaff ’s disappearance, officials thought the quarry was iced over, but investigators later determined that was not the case. “It was presumed at the time that this quarry was frozen over … it was not,” Wilkins said. “We decided to go in and get it done.” Winchell said she and her family even searched the area near the New York-Vermont border, looking for Schaff. “I went out there looking,” she said. “I was shaken, and at time felt like I was going to pass out.” One week after n May WInchell, Jonathan Schaff’s mother Schaff ’s disappearance, Winchell said members and volunteers, have that she went to the bar, forconducted numerous searches merly Riverside Pub, with a since Schaff ’s disappearance, picture of Jonathan. but those efforts have not yield“I was on a rampage,” she said. “I was mad.

imity to the New York border, Vermont State Police looked into missing persons cases in both states, including Schaff ’s, to hopefully bring a family some closure. “Even though (the case) is fairly cold and the information is running out, we are still getting, in dribs and drabs, information,” Wilkins said. He added: “I haven’t handled missing persons cases that have gone on for this long. Typically we do find missing persons within a shorter period of time.” Wilkins took over the missing person case in February, after the original detective moved to a different position. “We decided to put a new set of eyes on the case,” he said. Wilkins asked to be put on the Schaff case, one of three missing persons cases his office in Shaftsbury is working on. He said he wanted to pursue the case because he has “a passion for these types of cases – complicated cases.” “It was something that I wanted to be challenged with and that the family just deserved … I just needed to do the best job that I could for them,” Wilkins said. “Obviously I was hoping to get them some results before now,” he said, “but it hasn’t come to fruition … and that doesn’t mean we are giving up yet.” Wilkins is so invested in finding Schaff that he offered up his personal contact information to Schaff ’s parents. “A lot of times, family members just need information. They need somebody out there advocating for them and making sure that they are still actively searching for their family member,” Wilkins said. He said it’s not unusual for police to offer themselves as a direct contact for families, but that he is particularly passionate about missing persons cases. Winchell said: “Todd (Wilkins) is different. Whenever I text him, he is right there. He always gets back to me.” She added: “I know Todd cares. I know he is trying his best to find Jonathan.” “It’s me. It’s what I do for the people in tough situations,” Wilkins said. “I am a father of three and I cannot imagine losing a child in any way, shape or form, so I just felt that she (Winchell) needed to know that we are working on this and that she has a contact that she can reach out to.” Winchell said she texts Wilkins when she’s upset or if she has questions about her son’s case. “Both states are putting all kinds of resources into this,” Wilkins said. “…. not caring who technically has the case, because we don’t know for sure where he is. He could be in New York or he could be in Vermont.” “I sit up thinking about Jonathan … all of the time, day and night,” Winchell said. “I just want him found.” Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Vermont State Police at 802-7739101.

Police: Few leads remain One of the leads police are currently working on in the disappearance of Jonathan Schaff, relates to results gathered from the questioning in the summer of 2016. “We are looking for a specific individual that has kind of taken off from us at this moment in time … that we really want to speak to,” said detective sergeant Todd Wilkins, mentioning that he’s “pretty positive” the gentleman knows police are looking for him. “We can’t locate him yet, but we will, very soon I have a feeling,” he said. Wilkins said the biggest source of information police have is people. “I need people to talk,” he said. “We will come talk to them quietly or privately, but we need people to talk because right now, after three years, there really isn’t forensic evidence out there that is going to solve this. It’s literally information from people that is going to help bring Jonathan Schaff home.” As far as ground searches, Wilkins said that police do not have any planned at this time, but if a lead points them to an area, they will search it. “Myself and my detectives have gone out and surveyed the area, thinking outside the box – was he hit by a car and was maybe lying in a ditch, or something like that,” he said. “We checked all of that and it came up empty.” Even though the Schaff case is approaching the three-year mark, Wilkins said police are not giving up on trying to find him. Wilkins said, “It all depends on where the case is at. Sometimes cases go cold within the first month and sometimes cases don’t go cold for years and years.” “I know that we are coming up on the three-year mark, but for me that is not going to change anything. We are still going to keep this as an active case, and keep pushing as we would with all cases,” he said. “When the leads come in, we will continue to track those leads down.” Schaff ’s mother, May Winchell, said she and her family will reward $1,000 to anyone who produces a viable lead, one that contributes to the whereabouts of her missing son. “I just wish he would come home,” she said. Wilkins said: “I am not going to sit here and say that we have a ton of leads. We have pretty much exhausted most of the leads that we have. We have a few more to jump on, but every single one that’s come in we have exhausted.” He added: “And frustratingly, we haven’t come up with the information that we want yet.”

A commentary: The Sadness of Christmas Editor: Dec. 25 is a very special day. It’s the day God sent his only son to be with us on Earth and fulfill his kingdom’s promise. In reading the Dec. 22 Sentinel, there was a whole section titled, “What Christmas Means to Me,” which included letters from elementary school children. It was sad to see the theme of most of them. It was all about Santa and what they could expect from him. Almost every one was making cookies for Santa and leaving carrots out to freeze for his reindeer. Christmas is the season of giving, however these stories leave one feeling most young folks believed that the more they did for Santa, the more there would be for themselves, come Christmas morning. There must have been a tear in God’s eye. His son’s message was to love, share and give. There was about 15 percent of the students that did mention Jesus in their lives. Generally, their families were not baking cookies for this fictitious character called Santa Claus. All of the children did emphasize family togetherness and love and that’s good. Yet, for most, the true meaning of Christmas was missing. The world is full of homeless,

lonely and hungry folks. Jesus would like to see these cookies and carrots going to food shelves. Even in Granville, maybe even some warm clothes and blankets to local shelters for these young folks could be a real gift of meaning. I’m sure they would still find lots of gifts under their tree and a warm family gathering. Granville village has a wonderful Christmas lighted display in Veterans Memorial Park; however, I don’t recall much Jesus there either. Over in Wells, things aren’t much different. Wells has a population of over 1,000 residents. The Wells United Methodist Church presented a wonderful Christmas Eve church service. Five Wells folks attended. Several others from outside the town were also there. I recall Christmas Eve 25 years ago, when 85 folks attended. On Sunday morning, Jesus’ birthday, again few folks from Wells were able to attend. Pastor Pam Thomas provided such a thought-provoking, meaningful message entitled, “God would like to have a word with you.” Christmas is a warm, wonderful time of year, however if we are not celebrating Jesus’ birthday and carrying out his wishes, then what are we celebrating?

The Castleton Republicans

Typically, most of the county Republican legislative delegation attends. With the 2017 legislative session, which began Jan. 4, they are be hearing about the

new administration, new committee assignments in both chambers of the Legislature, as well as the concerns for the upcoming session and ways for citizens to stay informed and involved. The Castleton Republican Committee invites all to come saying, “It’s always a worthwhile morning together in a room filled with Republicans. The cost for the buffet is $13.

Letter to the Editor Another successful year for Poultney community Editor: The Poultney Woman’s Club would once again like to thank the community for another year of supporting our Tree of Giving Project. We were able to serve thirty families, eightyeight children and twenty senior citizens— our largest year ever. We would like to give thanks to the following businesses, organizations, and churches— First Light Technology employees, Kinney Pike Insurance employees, Williams Hardware, Dick Gray Roofing, Rotary, Adam Maslack Trust, Poultney High Boosters Club, Bomoseen Grange, Methodist Church, People of Praise Church and St. Raphael’s Ladies Guild. A special thanks also goes out to all the people taking a name from the tree or donating monetary gifts. It takes everyone working together to be able to carry on this project each year. Last, but certainly not least,

a big thank you to PHS teachers Miss Hollister and Miss Corkum and PHS students. The students conducted a toy drive at the school and also sent a group of students to help wrap senior citizen gifts. We truly appreciate the time and effort these teachers and students offered to help make our program a success. Northland Reality graciously turns their office over to us each year for the whole month of December. This project would be impossible without this space to carry on our work. Thank you so much Alan Gambosi. Once again our community came together to support the Tree of Giving Project. Together we were able to offer a nice Christmas to many people. Our sincere thanks to everyone. Sincerely, Sheila Nichols and Beverly Drake Project Directors

‘No Strings Marionettes’ upcoming at Paramount “No Strings Marionettes’s” production of “Nick of Time” will be presented by Vermont Actors’ Repertory Theatre Jan. 19-20 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan. 2 at 2 p.m. in the Brick Box at the Paramount Theatre, 30 Center Street in Rutland. Audience members of all ages are asked to join a funfilled out of this world adventure. Before the show, people will be invited to make their own three-dimensional finger puppets of Nick and the Alien to take home with them. Other interactive activities will include drawing and mask making. A question and answer session with “No Strings” creators, Dan Bagniski and Barbara Paulson, will follow the performance for a closer look at the puppeteers’ trade. During a special mission to explore a mysterious dark object nearing planet Earth a rocket ship carrying Astronaut Nick Eastman and his hoverbot, Glitch, is attacked by a deep space alien. Nick is sucked into a time warp finding himself millions of years ago in the dinosaurs’ world. Then he travels to the future and a barely recognizable earth. The journey is about the importance of taking care of our planet so it

survives for future generations. The 45-minute marionette show demonstrates many intriguing dimensions of puppetry. Becky McMeekin, director of Chandler Music Hall in Randolph said, “The marionettes were exquisite…their creativity and attention to detail produce terrific results!” Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson, co-founders of “No Strings Marionette Company” have toured America for over 20 years. Each performance is a seamless blend of movement, music and marionette magic. The “No Strings Marionette” company creates its own scripts, puppets, costumes, sound tracks, sets and props. Paulson and Baginski leave their audiences with something to think about, “entertainment with a little twist”, Baginski said. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at the Paramount Theatre Box Office or by calling 802 -775-0903. The tickets are also available at: or at the door. Read more about the Actors’ Repertory Theatre at or e-mail the company at Actorsrepvt@aol. com.
