Community invited to attend Local cheerleaders will have a chance to demonstrate what they’ve been working on at a cheer showcase at Poultney High School on Sunday, Jan. 27. “This is not a competition; it’s just a way for local teams to practice on the mats in front of fans— kind of like a dress rehearsal,” Joey Williams, Poultney’s cheer coach, said. Williams said her assistant coach, Megan Franzoni, came up with the idea for this inaugural event, which they hope will become an annual happening. The two thought the showcase would be a good practice for local teams before their competition season begins. “We both thought it would give our teams that extra drive to have our routine ready sooner than we usually do. It’s also a way to see what we still need to work on and perfect before the real competitions start,” Williams said. The coaches are hoping community members and cheer fans will attend the competition as a way to support the local athletes. The teams performing are the Poultney varsity, junior varsity and junior high, Fair Haven varsity, and a new, joint team. The PFC youth is a team Williams started this past November that consists of girls and boys from Poultney, Fair Haven, Castleton, Benson and a few other local areas. Williams said the students, who range from ages 4 to 10, will compete in state competitions for their age levels. Doors for the event will open at 11:30 a.m., and performances will begin at noon. Admission is $3, and proceeds will go to PFC youth cheerleading. There will also be a concession stand.

Flu shot? There’s still time People throughout the Lakes Region and the state are falling ill due to the flu, and state health officials are urging people to get the flu vaccination. “Everyone age 6 months

Lakes Region libraries thrive in internet age Carol Scott, librarian for the Fair Haven Free Library, knows a little something about multitasking. On a recent Wednesday afternoon, Scott was busy scanning materials, advising patrons where they could find specific books or DVDs, and answering the phone. “It’s a really busy place,” Scott said.

“During the last four years we’ve seen significant increases in circulation. The library is much busier.” In an age when books can be downloaded onto a nine inch, 1.5 pound iPad without even leaving the comfort of one’s house, it may surprise people to learn that public libraries are thriving and busier than ever.

Green Mountain College will host Timothy Patrick McCarthy, director of the Carr Center for Human Rights at Harvard’s Kennedy School, for a public address at 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 24 in the East Room (Withey H a l l ) . McCarthy will speak as the school’s 2013 Voices of Community P l e n a r y Speaker in honor of the ideals of Martin Luther King, Jr. The title of his talk is “Human Rights, Human Wrongs: The Long History of Slavery and Abolition,” and focuses on modern slavery and the sex slave trade.

outof the vaccine. This year’s flu season is particularly acute and the Center for Disease Control has reported most of the country is experiencing high levels of the influenza-like illness according to its FluView report. The Vermont Department of Health has reported that the current level of flu activity is widespread and has been confirmed in all areas of the state. The Rutland Regional Medical Center reports that since October, the number of flu cases is up 24 percent from last flu season. Three Vermonters have died from the illness this season. Whether or not you’ve received the flu vaccination, officials are urging people to take several simple precautions to help keep the flu and other illnesses from spreading. People are encouraged to cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing or use a tissue and then throw it away; wash your hands often; use hand sanitizers when soap and water aren’t available; and if you get sick, stay home.

Twig remembers Todd Dimick

I first met Todd at Smith’s True Value Hardware where he would come with his mom. He was a Special Ed. kid and a great customer. They followed me to Williams Hardware where we continued our super relationship and camaraderie. May God be with you, Todd Dimick.

Margie Jones Another one of those East Poultney McIntyre kids raised properly. The old-fashioned way, on the farm. Each of them was different

in differing ways but then again, all were the same when it came to manners and doing things the old-fashioned way. May God stay with you, Margie Jones.

Danny Rooney Born and raised in Castleton the son of Dub and Alice Rooney. Danny followed in his Dad’s footsteps and entered the construction business. And just like his dad before him, he became one of the best heavy duty equipment machine operators in the area. May God be riding with you, Danny Rooney.

Down Home Derby fishing tourney next weekend The Down Home Derby and the Kids’ Down Home Derby, the first ice fishing competitions of the season in the Lakes Region, return next weekend in a new and revised format. “We have made several changes this year including the date, headquarters location, allowable fishing waters, number of days and prizes,” said Tom Bartholomew, one of the events’ organizers. Contrary to past derbies, which were held over the course of a weekend, this year’s event will be held on a single day, Saturday, Jan. 26. The event, which is organized by the Benson Fish and Game Club, has also expanded its scope and won’t limit anglers only to Lake Champlain but will instead allow participants to fish on all

Vermont waters. The adult derby will begin at 5 a.m. and all fish need to be at the scales, which will be located at the Benson Town Offices on Stage Road, by 6 p.m. This year’s allowable categories are Northern Pike, Walleye, Yellow Perch (the combined weight of three fish) and other, which will include Bass, Salmon and Trout among others. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three in all four categories. There will be cash prizes for those who finish fourth in the pike and perch categories. Additional drawings will be given away as well. The total cash prizes will be dependent on the number of derby tickets sold. Tickets will cost $20 and are available

until noon on Jan. 26 at Ed’s Bait, Tom’s Bait and Tackle, G&L General Store, Buxton’s Store and Derby Headquarters. The kids’ derby will also begin at 5 a.m. but fish must be at the scales by 4 p.m. The categories for the kids’ derby will be the same as their adult counterparts but prizes will be different. A trophy will be presented to the first place winner in each category and there will be four grand prizes of $100, $50, and (2) $25. Tickets for the kids’ derby will cost $5. Proceeds from the event will benefit the fish and game club. For more information call 537-2468 or 265-9730. You can also email Tom Bartholomew at Look for more details in next week’s

edition of the Lakes Region Free Press.

The inaugural Castleton Spartans Football Ice Fishing Derby will be held from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 26 on Lake Bomoseen. The derby will include four categories: trout, perch, bass and Northern Pike and cash prizes will be awarded to the winners in both adult and kids’ divisions. The cost to enter is $30 for adults and $10 for kids. Derby headquarters will be located at Fishtails in Bomoseen. For more information, contact Colleen Klatt at 468-1218 (day) or 763-6700065 (evenings).

Poultney cheerleaders sponsoring Winter Ball next Saturday A recent bottle drive raised another approximately $500 for the Blanchard family. The Governor’s Institutes of Vermont will be having two winter weekends. Feb. 8-10 at Goddard College there is a choice of visual arts, information technology, current issues, performing arts-music jam, and engineering. The weekend of Feb. 15-17 at Marlboro College they will be offering

advanced math for girls and performing arts-improvisation. Registration is Jan. 23. Please see Dawn Sarli. The PHS cheerleaders are sponsoring a Winter Ball on Jan. 26 from 7 to 10 p.m. The cost is $10 per person or $15 per couple. There will be snacks and a hired DJ. On Jan. 23 Mrs. Gallipo and VSAC will be meeting with seniors and families at 6 p.m. to apply for financial aid for FAFSA and Vermont Grant.

The following students from Mrs. Capman’s leadership class made a proposal to the administration and got permission to build a skating rink at PHS for the community: Zack Constantine, Jacob Cook, Brandon Davenport, Nathan Heald, Connor Hill, Evan Jackson, Brett Kelley, Vincent Kendall, Killian Lynes, Jayme Mars, Megan McMahon, Ryan Mullen, Cade Pratt, Tyler Rice, Jacob White, and Sam White. The students worked on setting up the rink on Friday, Jan. 4, and the custodial staff, Rich

Holcomb, JP Reed, Roy Sims, and Amos Babcock helped, as well as Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. DeBonis. The Poultney Fire Department assisted in filling the rink. Much hard work was put into the rink, but the weather has not been cooperative, so the rink is still under construction. It is hoped to have it up and running after the semester exams. There will be a blood drive in GMC’s Whithey Hall, Thursday, Jan. 24 from 12 to 5 p.m. Visit www.redcrossblood. org

Handicapped-accessible dining is available on the main floor. St. Luke’s is located on the corner of North Main and Allen Streets.





Plant nursery relocated to Green Mountain College The Champlain Valley Native Plant Restoration Nursery has successfully been relocated to Green Mountain College. Come March, the nursery will be in full operation and open to the public for visiting and asking questions, though it is currently dormant for winter, officials said. “The nursery was created out of the need to provide native plants grown from local seed sources that would be available for restoration and vegetative buffer plantings in the Lake Champlain Basin. Some of the goals of the native plant nursery are to increase participation of residents, farmers, and municipalities in the effort to reduce phosphorus and contam-

inants while increasing ecological diversity and improved water quality,” officials said. The nursery will also play a key role in the Conservation District’s “Plant 1000 Trees” campaign and restoration project along the Mettowee River. There will be an open house this spring at the nursery, which is located on the west side of the campus behind Sage Hall and the Waldron Athletic Complex, and select rain garden plants will be available for purchase. The project was a collaboration between the Poultney-Mettowee Natural Resources Conservation District, the Nature Conservancy and Green Mountain College.

Poultney Snowmobile Club hosting pancake breakfast Wake up, hop on your sled and head to the Poultney Snowmobile Club’s 40th-annual pancake breakfast on Sunday, Jan. 20. Along with pancakes, hungry snowmobilers and locals can enjoy real maple syrup donated by Green’s Sugarhouse, maple sausage, eggs, home fries, toast, apple sauce, fruit cocktail, and coffee, hot chocolate and orange juice. Ernie DeMatties, trail coordinator for the club, said the breakfast is all-you-can-eat, and no one will be turned away. He said the event usually garners a good turnout, and people come annually from all over town. “It’s kind of a community thing; we see the same people every year,” DeMatties said. The breakfast started forty

years ago in a garage and blossomed from there. It’s now held in the Poultney Elementary School gym, which will be decorated and is conveniently located just off the rail trail. During the breakfast there will be a big-screen video showing work and events the club does throughout the year. DeMatties is hoping for snow before Sunday, so people will have the opportunity to ride to breakfast on their snowmobiles. He also hopes for a big turnout. The breakfast costs $7 for adults, $4 for children 10 and under and is free for very young children, and DeMatties said whole families who come in get a break. Food will be served from 7 a.m. until noon, or until people are done eating.

Library hosting display of Pop-Up Books Happy Birthday! On Jan. 18, we celebrate the birthday of A.A. Milne, the author of the beloved children’s character, Winnie the Pooh. Martin Luther King Day is this Monday, Jan. 21 and a National Holiday. People are encouraged to do a good deed on this day. Why not volunteer some time at your local library. Jan. 21 is also National Hugging Day and National Squirrel Appreciation Day. However, it is not suggested that you hug your local squirrel! This month the Wells Village Library has a display of Pop-Up Books. Are these books actual books or toys? Please stop by the library to see them for yourself. Pop-up books can be popup, flaps, pull-tabs, pop-outs, pull downs or even transformations where vertical slats are pulled to the side to reveal a totally different scene. Early pop-up books were published for adults. The first pop-up book was created as an astrological book in 1306. Another movable astrological book was published in 1564. This was followed by the medical profession using this format as a teaching tool. Anatomical books enabled the students to view the human body with layers of pages and flaps.

Babar. These books are now very valuable. Today, pop-up books have become sophisticated pieces of paper engineering. Highly regarded pop-ups are now designed by M a t t h e w Reinhardt. His best artistic achievement can be seen in the book, “Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy” which is now on display at the Wells Village Library. You can take a peek at the inside of his books at Robert Sabuda, another paper engineer, is well known for his versions of Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. His books have also become valuable collectors’ items. Please note the following change of dates at the Wells Village Library. The Author of the Month Book Discussion has been moved to Jan. 31 at 10:30 a.m. The Little Listener Story time will meet Jan. 17 and 24 at 10:30 a.m. New members are welcome at both groups. Library Trivia: Each pop-up book is still created individually by hand.

Pawlet library hosting Mardi Gras Mystery papers continues below. Pawlet Public Library presents its 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Mystery to be solved by revelers attending the Fat Tuesday Dinner at the Barn Restaurant on Feb. 12, 2013. The mystery introduced in last week’s news-

Start your New Year out right - become a home owner! OPEN HOUSE OPEN HOUSE LAND LISTINGS SATURDAY, JAN 19TH 10AM~12PM

In the 19th century the first versions of pop-ups as we know them today became very popular in Great Britain and Germany. These were made by Ernest Nister and Lothar Me ggendorfer. In the United States, Louis Giraud and T h e o d o r e Brown created the Daily E x p r e s s Children’s Annual in 1929 and followed it with four more books. Mr. Giraud started Strand Publishing House which produced 17 books. In the 1930’s Harold Lentz began Blue Ribbon books and created pop-ups with movable illustrations. Throughout the 1960’s to 1990’s Waldo Hunt, who founded Graphics International, produced hundreds of children’s books. His first pop-up was based on Bennett Cerf ’s “Riddle Book.” It was published by Random House, where Cerf was president, as a promotion for Maxwell House Coffee. Waldo Hunt teamed up with Christopher Cerf to produce 30 more pop-ups including Sesame Street characters. Hunt also made pop-ups for Walt Disney and created a series based on

GILBERT REALTY & DEVELOPMENT 802-265-8834 or 802-468-5308

Chet West flipped open his cell phone and made a quick call to his cameraman, Helmut Schmidt. He then quickly exited his office. West strode down the corridor to Lauren Adams suite. “Lauren, get me the proposed contract for the rain forest documentary. Run the numbers. Put enough fat in it for an extra month in case of red tape. The whole staff is going to be needed on this one. You’ll be running the business from Rio so get security on it, here and there.” Lauren lifted an eyebrow. “Yeah! And, Happy New Year to you, too, Mr. West”. Young, “hip” (Chet’s term, not hers) and stunningly attractive, Ms. Adams had been running West Enterprises for 10 years. Chet, a firm believer that women in business are highly underrated, had hired Lauren straight out of law school. He smiled as he remembered when his Executive Director had delivered her first “sweetheart of a deal”; MGM’s lawyers had left negotiations shaking their heads and smiling ruefully. “Oh, before I forget, what’s the name of the Brazilian torch singer who’s getting raves from everyone in the music industry? Call her agent. Get a tape. Make the money and exposure attractive up front. We’re short on time. I want the score for “A Rain Forest Without Air” to reflect the new Rio. Oh, we’ll be there for Mardi Gras so build in promo footage with the

media.” I want “international film producer of the year” out of this. Call Ramona Oliver and see if Greenpeace is on the scene. Do they have anyone down there yet?” Departing as abruptly as he had entered, West disappeared leaving Ms. Adams to expedite everything needed for the Rio project. Returning to his office, Chet West turned his attention to the card he had received that morning. It was postmarked Rio de Janeiro...Gazing at the card, his mind turned to “Brasil 66”, when he was Chestley Westman, in town to produce his first documentary, “A Rain Forest Without Trees”. He and his crew, just back from filming in the jungle, stepped into the world of “Carnaval”; they wished they never had to leave. Man, what a crap shoot that was!!! Clint Eastwood wasn’t the only one reflecting on “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!” Pawlet Public Library invites you to solve the mystery and celebrate Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at The Barn Restaurant & Tavern in Pawlet, Vermont. En Masque is optional. The festivities begin with a cocktail social at 5:00 pm. Dinner featuring Brazilian cuisine will be served at 6:00 pm. The price for this extraordinary gala is $25 per person. Fat Tuesday tickets are available at the Pawlet Public Library and West Pawlet Farmer’s Market. For tickets or information, call the library at (802) 325-3123.
