Let the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree begin. The U.S. Forest Service is offering folks the opportunity to venture into the Green Mountain National Forest in search of that ideal conifer. Christmas tree permits are available locally at USFS offices in Rutland (231 North Main St.) and Manchester (2538 Depot St.). The permit, which costs only

$5, allows individuals to select and cut their own tree. Maps that outline areas where trees can be found are available with the permit. “This tradition has become exactly that for a lot of Vermont families,” said Ethan Ready, public affairs officer for the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests. “People really enjoy getting out in the National Forest and look-

A painting by Brian Sweetland, pottery by Marion Waldo McChesney, custom maple boards from J.K. Adams, and many other great holiday gift-giving items will be featured as part of a holiday fundraiser to benefit the Pawlet Town Hall restoration effort at the Barn Restaurant on Dec. 11 at 6 p.m. Celebrate the holidays and get into the spirit of giving! The evening will also include plated dinner and live music. The cost is $25 per person; for reservations call the Barn Restaurant at 325-3088. Proceeds will be used to help meet the match required by the Vermont Arts Council grant recently awarded to Pawlet

Castleton library to host tree-lighting ceremony On Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. the GFWC Castleton Woman’s Club and the Castleton Free Library invite everyone to attend the annual Christmas tree lighting and welcome the new tree of remembrance on the library lawn. This young tree replaces the tree of remembrance that was planted many years ago by Woman’s Club members Eleanor Anderson and Barbara Forest. It served the community for many years, only to be felled a few years ago in a severe windstorm. To begin the evening, come and greet the new tree with caroling led by MaryJo Knapp.

Afterward all are invited to join Santa inside the library for cookies, cocoa, stories, and music. The 2012 Christmas Tree of Remembrance will be lighted to memorialize or to honor loved ones during the holiday season. Community members are invited to donate $l or more per honoree. Donation forms are available at Castleton and Fair Haven businesses and other locations such as the Post Office and local markets. Checks should be made payable to Castleton Woman’s Club and all donations should be sent to Pauline

Young, 1186 Route 4A East, Castleton, VT 05735. Gifts received by Dec. 20 will be included in the memorial recognition list appearing in local newspapers. Donations are used to fund local scholarship aid. On Dec. 12 at noon, the Castleton Woman’s Club will meet at Castleton State College Medical Chapel. After a light lunch, the business meeting will begin at 12:30 p.m., and the program will commence at 1. Stacie Mincher will hold a workshop on creating a holiday ornament from found objects. Please call Linda at 273-2086 for further information.

The great debate: Book vs. movie!

Poultney hymn sing and tea The Welsh Presbyterian Church in Poultney will host a Christmas carol sing and tea on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 2 p.m. A nondenominational event, the congregational music will be sung in English. Christmas hymns will be selections from “The Celebration Hymnal, Songs and Hymns for Worship.” The church is on Grove Street (Route 30) in Poultney. A free-will offering will be taken, benefitting the church’s handicap elevator construction fund and for the Poultney

Cemetery Association grounds maintenance. Following the sing, refreshments will be served downstairs in St. David’s Hall. All are welcome. Holiday season baked goods to share for the tea will be appreciated. If you’d like to provide baked goods, please let either Benita Mead or Helen Jones know as soon as possible. For more information, contact Benita Mead, vtbenanna@aol. com, (802) 287-5264; Helen Jones, (802)-287-9729 or Nancy Williams (518) 642-0709.

Coping with grief during holidays RAVNAH Hospice is offering a grief workshop on Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. at Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice, 7 Albert Cree Drive, Rutland. The work-

shop presents coping strategies and helpful suggestions on how to make it through the holidays and even enjoy them. Call Ann LaRocque at 802-770-1516 to register.

This holiday season, 12 movies will be released that are based on books. They include some new titles: “Cloud Atlas,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Atlas Shrugged,” “Alex Cross,” “The Twilight Series — Breaking Dawn,” “The Life of Pi,” and “Lincoln” based on the book “The Team of Rivals,” and some old favorites: “On the Road,” “Anna Karenina,” “Wuthering Heights,” “Les Miserables” and “The Hobbit.” Ask any reader which was better, the movie or the book, and the answer will generally be “The book was better.” Books can provide more details, help the reader expand their imagination and create images of the characters in their own minds. Directors find that books provide a wealth of material with built-in ideas, characters and a title already created. Movies do appeal to the visual senses. However, not everyone can sit and read a 600-page novel like “Anna Karenina.” The viewer leaves it to the discretion of the director to add or change characters or details and even scenery. Today’s movies must fall into the 90-minute time period or audiences lose their interest so many details must be eliminated. Readers can

Monticello ‘essay in architecture’ in Rutland lecture conceptualize how the movie should be made. In the 1930’s, fans of “Gone with the Wind” demanded that the character of Rhett Butler be played by Clark Gable. This holiday season, the movie, “The Life of Pi,” based on the book by Yann Martel is already suggested to be placed on the list for best picture. It is a story of a teen boy who is set adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger for over 200 days. What is your opinion? Do you prefer reading the book or seeing the movie or doing both and comparing one to another? The Wells Village Library has many of the books these new movies are based on, including “Anna Karenina,” “The Hobbit,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and many others. Please stop by the library to check them out! Library Trivia: Last year, six of the nine movies nominated for best picture were based on books! Joanne Van Meter is the librarian at the Wells Public Library.

Movies, carols and more in Poultney There will be a special Christmas story time on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 6 to 6:30 p.m. for Santa stories and caroling, in anticipation of Santa’s visit to the library atop a firetruck which leads him and the eager children up to the Poultney Town Hall to have cookies and hot chocolate. The children will visit with Santa and join him in singing carols as the Christmas tree is lit. Story time is designed for the skill and interest level of toddlers and preschoolers, but children of all ages are welcome Fridays at 11 a.m., Nov. 30 through Dec. 21. Free.

Holiday movies There will be showings of holiday movies at the Poultney Public Library on Fridays, Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 at 7pm. As always, movie admission and refreshments are free. The library is restricted from advertising by title, so the staff asks you to please stop by or call the library for the titles

Bots for Tots The library has ornaments on offer this year as a thank you for your donation of $3 or more.

Beginning after the Thanksgiving holiday these adorable ornaments will be adorning our tree. Please stop by the library to view these precious collectibles. All donations will go towards enhancements for our Children’s Area. Previous year’s donations have made possible our Elmo rug, the new colorful chairs, and the amazing Lego table. This year’s theme is “Bots for Tots.”

Book discussion The Poultney Public Library “Book and a Movie” discussion group is reading “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash,” by Jean Shepherd. This book contains the story that the film “A Christmas Story” is based on. Stop by the library to pick up a copy of the book, then join the group on Saturday, Dec. 15, at 9 a.m. for discussion and refreshments. This is an informal group; all that is needed is a love of reading and an interest in sharing thoughts and ideas with others.

The Rutland Free Library presents “Building Monticello,” a First Wednesdays lecture on Dec. 5, in the Nella Fox Room at 7 p.m. Marlene Heck, a senior lecturer in art history and history at Dartmouth College, will discuss Thomas Jefferson’s “essay in architecture”, Monticello. Thomas Jefferson never knew the Monticello we visit today – in perfect condition, i m p e c c ably fur nished. Jefferson died so deeply in debt that his surviving child was forced to auction off the house and its contents. Heck will explain how to understand Jefferson’s lifelong project. Her research and writing focus on the architectural and social history in the age of Jefferson.

Santa visits Poultney to host tree lighting Children love Santa, and they also love fire trucks. They’ll have a chance to enjoy both of those and more during Poultney’s tree lighting on Saturday, Dec. 1. The event will begin with a Christmas story time at 6 p.m. at the Poultney Public Library where kids will hear Santa stories and sing carols. After this, Santa will arrive at the library atop a fire truck and lead children and other community members up Main Street to the town office for the lighting of the memory

tree. Kids will then have an opportunity to meet Santa as he lights the tree and leads carols. “I think it’ll be a good time, especially for the little ones,” said Town Clerk Pattie McCoy. She said event organizers are hoping for a good turnout and snow. The Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce will provide cookies and hot chocolate at the event, and local businesses will stay open.

Box 128, Pawlet, VT 05761. The Town Hall has served Pawlet’s town government con-

The Town Hall provides a unique link with the town’s history.” The Pawlet town offices are on the first floor, and the upstairs auditorium has been used over the years for town meetings, community groups, classes, and plays and other performances.

Holiday market at First Friday

Mettawee kicks off holidays The young served over 300 of their elders during an annual meal last Tuesday at the Mettawee Community School in West Pawlet. The holiday feast, which the school has been hosting since it opened about 14 years ago, was a collaborative effort from each grade and also staff. “They really feel because they contribute, they take ownership of it — it’s so positive,” Principal Brooke DeBonis said of the students. Each class participated by contributing something to the meal. The kindergarten and third-grade students, for example, made apple sauce, while the fifth and sixthgrade students peeled and cut vegetables. Every child in the school had a senior guest to sit with them, many of whom were grandparents or neighbors. Susan King

saw that everybody was seated with other students from their classrooms and paired up the children with guests. “It’s a nice feeling to see everybody gathered,” King said. DeBonis agrees. “It means a lot when we have community events here,” she said. DeBonis said the school served 130 pounds of potatoes and 165 pounds of turkey, along with other fixings like cranberry muffins and pumpkin bread. While the students put together basic dishes, many adults played a large role in preparing the feast. “The kitchen staff does a tremendous amount of work cooking, etc. The parents contribute food, they help set up, they serve food and they assign a clean-up crew,” DeBonis said. “It’s really important to us that the community is involved.”

After pie was served for dessert and stomachs were stuffed, DeBonis thanked everyone involved in the feast and handed out flowers to key organizer, and then participants of all ages joined in singing several songs, including Country Life and Over the River.

There are things that just go together well: peanut butter and jelly, horse and carriage, love and marriage …. And that’s pretty much how I feel about First Fridays and the holidays. December has more than its fair share of holidays in it, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s to name the hit parade of them (I’ll leave out Yule and Festivus). But whichever one you celebrate, every one of them is made a little better with the addition of First Friday. Why? Because every December First Friday becomes a local market of affordable gifts and art for whichever special day you are celebrating. And this, the third First Friday holiday market, is keeping the tradition alive. I don’t want to spoil the surprises, but if you like handmade woolen goods this will be a chance to see Flo and Todd Olden’s fine handiwork. Christmas ornaments from Kathy Juckett are on our

tree and they can be on yours. The Foothill Treadlers will be back, putting a nice spin on things, with plenty of excellent goods for sale and Denise Tilley’s bespoke hats will be available for a special one-of-akind gift. The Pember trustees are getting into the spirit of the season and are baking up a cookie storm as we speak here, for a holiday treat for the evening. There will be mulled cider, too, to warm you up. And if that didn’t warm you up enough, we have the inimitable musical stylings of Al and Kathy Bain. The Bains have become a December First Friday tradition and if you’ve heard them you know why. And if you haven’t you need to come so you can find out what a musical treat they are. So come prepared to sip and shop and dance a little. Shopping and dancing is a nice combination, don’t you think? ’Tis the season to be merry and like milk and cookies First Friday makes for the sweetest kind of merry.

Christmas Concert this Sunday The Rev. Jay Witham, a country singer and songwriter from Cambridge, will give a free concert of Christmas music at 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 2, at Granville Baptist Church, 23 Quaker St.,

Granville, N.Y. Donations accepted. The church is wheelchair accessible. For more information, contact Pastor Jim Peterson at 518-642-2245 or JCPeterson@

Tree ing for that perfect tree.” Over the past few years, the program has grown in popularity. In 2010, the Forest Service issued 274 permits to harvest a tree in the Green Mountain National Forest. Last year that number jumped to 431 permits, Ready said. “We aren’t trying to compete with commercial growers but this is a different experience. It becomes an adventure and is nice way for the Forest Service to play a small part in what is a special time of the year for many people,” he said. Besides the ecological benefit of thinning a few trees, the program also encourages folks to experience the National Forest and helps foster a sense of stewardship, Ready said. “We’re always trying to encourage outdoor activities, especially among the youth. And this is a healthy way to get out and enjoy the forest.” That being said Ready, encourages people to exercise the same caution they would for other outdoor activities. “People should dress visibly and dress warm. You should bring food and water, carry a cell phone and flashlight and try to stay together. This is a fun adventure for folks but we want it to be safe,” he said.

There are several rules permit holders need to follow. Only one tree permit will be issued per household per year; trees cannot be cut in active timber sale area, wilderness areas, campgrounds, picnic areas, or within 25 feet of any Forest Service, town, or state maintained road. Also permits much be attached to the trees before transport, trees cannot be resold and it is impermissible to cut trees over 20 feet tall. Ready also reminds people that the trees in the forest are wild and not manicured or pruned like those available commercially. “The perfect tree is the eyes of the beholder,” Ready said. “It’s the experience that makes it attractive to a lot of people.” For more information, you can contact the Rutland office at 747-6700 or the Manchester Ranger Station at 362-2307.



Back in the 1950s, the town of Castleton would pay tuition for a kid to attend high school in either Fair Haven or West Rutland. West Rutland had as its principal a very strict disciplinarian and an excellent three-sport coach named Frank Hinchey. Norm went to West Rutland where he played on teams with guys like Mike Harte, Phil Jarrosiak, Pete Bianchi, John Kupferer, John Haley and Billy Arnado. Fast forward to the 1970s and Norm brought his two boys to enter my peewee basketball program. This is where I got to know Norm better. He was very interested in how the program would be

structured and how much the boys would be expected to know and do. A great guy, “Twig, if you need anything let me know.” Now every kid is different and especially brothers. Danny was a very bright kid and needed very little discipline. But Norm, on the other hand, was a little bit stubborn and could be difficult. One day Norm Sr. asked how the boys were doing, and I told him. The troubles were over. Norm Jr. turned out to be a hard-hitting running back for the Slater football team. Now I want to tell you about two great moments that Norm and I shared. At both events I

chatted with him at halftime in the downstairs snack bar of the Barre Auditorium. Once, Danny was the starting point guard as the Slaters were playing in the semifinals. And on the second occasion when I had vision of three little girls running up and down the court as they announced Fair Haven girls starting lineup for their semifinal game — at center — Heather Perry and the two guards — Toby Whalen and Miss Fish, all three from my “lil gal” program. God bless you Norm, and thank you for trusting me with your kids. -- Twig Canfield

Now here was the softest, kindest man you could ever want to meet, and I knew it the first time I ever met him. I was working at Smith’s Hardware in Bomoseen, and this tall, thin gent sporting glasses like my dad wore comes in, and he was asking for me. We introduced ourselves, and he began praising my writing style for “the Promoter” and then he asked “where did the idea for the story come about ‘The Squatma Indians’ come from?” So I told him that when I tended bar at the Fair Haven Inn, Ken Pelkey and Bob Brown used to come up with these weird names and two of Pelkey’s favorites were “Sagawam” and “Squatma.” Well, I liked to have an article every week for the paper. Most times I would write three

and always had one ready to go. Well, it’s Tuesday night, and I need one to hand in tomorrow, so I set down and I’m thinking, “What would Pelkey do.” And I thought “Squatma.” Well, little Johnny went to school with three Indian boys who liked to raise hell. His mother was always telling him to stay away from them because they spelled “trouble.” One night Ma had finished the dishes, and yelled to Pa “I’m headin for the outhouse and I’ve got the newspaper, so I might be a bit. Fifteen minutes went by and little Johnny looks out the window and spots the three Indians getting ready to tip over the outhouse, so he lifts up the window and starts yelling, “Squat, Ma, Squat Ma, Squatma.” And that is how the Squatma Indians got their name.

Well, everybody I met was laughing and saying “Squatma” to me. Tad said he liked my story about writing it as well as he did old Squatma. You know I’ve also written a couple of poems that I consider as favorites under that same pressure. It is a process that I use when writing a musical. I create a pressure and squeeze out a chapter or squeeze out the right song. I’m so sorry, sometimes I get so excited it just squeezes out of me. I knew two things from my first encounter with Tad; 1. He and I would easily be friends and 2. He would have no problem settling into that quaint, calm country-style community of West Haven — they were meant for each other. God bless you, Tad. -- Twig Canfield
