Shakespeare lecture

in Rutland May 4

Poultney hosting conference spotlighting historical preservation By Derek Liebig The Preservation Trust of Vermont and the Downtown Vermont Program are poised to celebrate the historic preservation of the state’s downtown districts by holding the Historic Preservation and Downtown Conference this Friday, April 29, in Poultney. The one day conference focuses on the preservation and revitalization of downtown areas throughout the state. The conference features a number of lectures, presentations and workshops that follow three tracks on Downtown Revitalization, Streets as Places, and History. “It’s an opportunity for historic preserva-

tionists, community planners and economic development agencies to get together and network,” said Leanne Tingay, Vermont Downtown Program coordinator. “They will be able to learn from each other.” The central theme of the conference is “Why are our downtowns important,” which will be addressed by keynote speaker Tripp Muldrow. Muldrow is a principal in Arnett Muldrow and Associates and has spoken at the National Main Street Conference as well as state level events.

NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING for the Stockholders of Rutland-Whitehall Railroad

An annual   meeting   for   the   stockholders  of  the  Rutland-­Whitehall   Railroad  Company  will  be  held  at  the   Peoples   United   Bank,   Fair   Haven,           Vermont   at   10:00   a.m.   on   May   11,   2011,  for  the  purpose  of  electing  five   directors   and   conducting   any   other   proper  business. Virginia  B.  Wood, Clerk

Downtown Continued from front page “He has done a great deal of work in Vermont and will address the theme of the entire conference.” My hope is that by the end of the conference, people can determine what is important to them,” Tingay said. “The reasons downtowns are important may be different for everybody,” she said. Other themes include how branding, fundraising and the cultivation of new businesses contribute to the revitalization of downtown areas, as well as an explanation of what constitutes a great place and the reasons why streets are important. This year’s conference marks the first time the Vermont Downtown Program and the Preservation Trust of Vermont have partnered together on their annual conferences. Because the Preservation Trust is involved in the year’s conference, there is an added emphasis on history. Part of that emphasis is on Poultney’s Audio Walking and

Driving Tours. “They have done a fabulous job with their do-it-yourself walking tours,” Tingay said. Ron Stef fens, Communications Professor at Green Mountain College, and Ina Smith, producer and Poultney Historical Society officer will lead a workshop that highlights ways in which other communities can make their historical tours. The first of the George Jones Lecture Series will also be held in collaboration with the downtown conference. Other programs of note include “Why are Streets Important,” “Sponsorship Selling in 2011,” “Redundant Churches,” and “Opportunities and Obstacles for Streets as Places.” The conference will also include the announcement and presentation of this year’s Green Mountain Awards, presented every year to communities that have show shown hard work and dedication to community revitalization. Poultney won a Green Mountain Award in 2009 for its Historic Walking and Driving Tours.

The selection of Poultney as the location of the conference serves as validation for the Po u l t n e y D ow n t ow n Revitalization Committee (PDRC) which has strived to revitalize Poultney’s downtown over the last several years, including beautification efforts along Main Street. Tingay said the PDRC’s efforts were a key factor in selecting Poultney to host the conference. “Their attitude was so positive and they were helpful in every step along the way,” Tingay said. This is the first year the conference has been held in the southern portion of the state. The conference is expected to attract between 250 and 300 participants and will be held at Green Mountain College and in locations throughout Poultney. Registration is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. in Withey Hall at the college and a reception on the Green in East Poultney will cap the day’s events at 4 p.m. The cost to register is $25 for Poultney residents and $50 for anyone else.

Lender CFNE is a community development financial institution that serves as a bridge between socially responsible investors and cooperatives, community-oriented non-profits, and worker-owned businesses in New England. “It’s been very satisfying to see the overwhelming support,� said Riell. She noted that the Market already has 120 members. Planning meetings and work efforts have attracted a large cross-section of the community, including college students, farmers, families and singles. “It’s pretty amazing,� she said. For its grand opening, the market will feature several Vermont food producers who will set up their wares, along with music by local performers.


In the meantime, Riell invites interested residents to stop by the store on Saturdays. “We’ll be there every Saturday, so come in and visit us.â€? Stone Valley Community Market grew out of a concept originated by students at Green Mountain College in 2007. Local college students have long expressed a desire for more places to shop on Main Street, said Student Senate President JosĂŠ GĂĄlvez-Contreras. “There’s so much enthusiasm for the Market among GMC students,â€? he commented. “This gift to the Market is our way of supporting the community we’re in now.â€? According to GĂĄlvez-Contreras, several students have been involved throughout the planning stage, and many have already become members or are volunteering during the Market’s work weekends.

Gerald (Popeye) Beam I first met Pop back in the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I was working for Jack Helm and he was working for Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Bob. Both outfits were doing the same kind of work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whatever anybody needed done weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tackle it. The first 45 minutes of that job were spent arguing (in a father and son way) over how we were going to do it. As Pop and I stood watching he said to me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The apple doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall too far from the tree.â&#x20AC;? It was Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job so he won that one. That

Whenever we got together weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d talk about that tree job. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always add that it was that determination and stubbornness that made the two Helms good, successful, hardworking businessmen. May God be with you, Pop. -- Twig Canfield

Ed Breznick Like a lot of customers at Williams Hardware in the old days he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need much help. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d head right to the spot, pick up his goods and head for the register. A short visit with a sincere and courteous old fashion way

The ordinance was crafted as a way for towns to determine their food and farm policy locally and through direct democracy. The Ordinance recognizes and values small, diverse farms and cottage food processors, and celebrates local

The efforts of this small Maine town are inspiring a movement that will likely culminate here in Vermont next March at Town Meetings across the state.

St. Peter is the Executive Director of Food for Maine’s Future and serves on the boards of the National Family Farm Coalition and Family Farm Defenders,

Young at Heart is reaching out Volunteers allow center to help seniors at home By Linda Ellingsworth Long a gathering place for the senior community of Poultney, the Young at Heart Community Center has branched out this year to assist seniors in their houses. The organization’s new initiative, the Green Mountain Community Outreach Program, was launched four months ago as a way to help seniors stay in their homes. “It’s doing very well,” said Mary Thomas, site director of the community center. Bolstered by two grants totaling $17,000, the program has already made a difference in the lives of several Poultney seniors. There are currently 10 volunteers – all of whom have been backgroundchecked – and 15 clients, said Debbie Buciak, program coordinator. “We just hit our hundredth chore,” she noted. Outreach volunteers assist seniors with chores that would be difficult or even dangerous for them to attempt themselves.

During the exceptionally snowy winter, volunteers were busy with snow shoveling, said Buciak. Raking leaves off flower beds and spring house cleaning is now a priority, but volunteers also help with assorted tasks such as moving furniture, taking down curtains for washing, or picking up prescriptions. The program does not include personal care or pet care. “It’s a way for neighbors to help neighbors,” said Buciak. “Neighbors in Poultney help each other, which is how it ought to be.” The program, which is currently only open to Poultney residents, is seeking more volunteers. Buciak’s goal is to have enough volunteers so that each person is responsible for one chore per month. “The seniors just love it,” she said. “We often get letters or messages on the phone saying thank you.” While the new outreach program is a major push, the Community Center continues to be a beehive of activity.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders paid a visit to the center earlier this year at 300 members, the center is staffed by 35 volunteers who serve lunch Tuesday through Friday. In March of this year, said Mary Thomas, the center served 1,158 meals. “It’s a real community effort,” she commented. A portion of the food served is provided by the Vermont Food Bank. The remainder is covered by a small fee of $3.25 for those over 60, and $4.25 for people under 60 years of age. The 300 members of the Young at Heart Community Center come from all over the area, including Poultney, Chittenden, Rutland,

Clarendon, Wells, Hampton and Granville, said Thomas. Becoming a member is easy: just stop in at the organization’s home at 206 Furnace Street and fill out an application. “It’s free, and there are no strings attached,” she said. In addition to meals at the center and the Meals On Wheels program, the center offers an array of activities. “Laughing Yoga” is very popular, said Thomas. Held on Tuesdays at 1 p.m., the yoga exercises are done in chairs. “They have a lot of fun,” said Thomas. The Bone Builders exercise class on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30

Wells offers three meals every week

Zumba among new activities offered By Linda Ellingsworth

Probably for the first time in its 151-year history, the vintage home occupied by the Castleton Community Center is rocking to a Latin beat. Each Wednesday afternoon for the past few weeks, a dozen adventurous souls have been swinging their hips to Zumba, the latest fitness craze to sweep the nation. “It’s a great workout,” said instructor Laurie Knauer. “While it’s more of a cardio workout, people are also strengthening their muscles.” Participants currently range in age from their forties to their seventies. The dances are structured so that each person can perform the steps at their own comfort level. “Classes have been wonderful so far,” said Knauer. The new Zumba class is part of the center’s “whole focus on senior wellness,” said Executive Director Jo Ann Riley. The center, which primarily serves seniors in Castleton, Fairhaven and Hubbardton, offers a variety of courses to appeal to each person’s interests. “We try to find the right activity for each person,” said Riley. For those who don’t want the intensity of Zumba, the center also has Movement Medley on Thursdays from 4-5 p.m. A blend of Tai Chi, Yoga, and relaxation, “it’s great for people who like quieter movement,” Riley commented. Since balance is important for prevention of falls, the center offers a Better Balance class on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. “By trying different classes, people can zero in on a class that fits them,” she said. If someone just wants some workout time without a structured class, the center also has a “Walk and Ride Room” with a bicycle machine and treadmill. The room, located in a renovated barn, faces Main Street so you can watch the world go by as you walk or pedal. Incorporated in 1998, Castleton Community Seniors, Inc. is located just off Main Street in Castleton in a restored 1860 building originally known as The Old Homestead. The 500-member senior group shares the building with a variety of community organiza-

a.m. is also a favorite activity. Once a year, the Young at Heart Community Center hosts a Computer Class at the Poultney High School. “It’s a very popular class,” said Thomas. The eight-week session is funded by the Vermont Council on the Aging. Other activities include trips, such as a recent one to Wilton Mall for shopping (which included lunch at the Golden Corral). On September 14, the center is taking a motor coach trip to West Point for a tour and a cruise on Hudson River.

The Castle Community Center is a busy place for seniors tions ranging from Girl Scouts to 4-H clubs. With a mission to “enrich the lives of residents of the greater Castleton area, particularly seniors, by providing education, recreation, communication, health and social opportunities,” Castleton Community Seniors provides a broad spectrum of programs. Senior lunches are offered three days a week in the dining room. Two 12-passenger vans give rides to senior and disabled residents from Castleton and the surrounding area. The vans, which provide transportation for essential travel such as doctor appointments, operate eight hours a day, five days a week.

Seniors looking for some entertainment in Wells needn’t look further than the Modern Woodmen of America annex. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, seniors gather at the annex for a nice meal, games and some good company. Meals are provided by the Meals on Wheels program out of Rutland and cost $3.25. “You can’t even get a meal for that price at McDonalds,” joked Dorothy “Dot” Brace. Lunch includes an entrée, coffee and dessert. Besides thes delicious lunch, seniors also have the opportunity to partake in several activities. “We have a bone builders class on Monday’s and Wednesday’s,” said Brace. “It begins at 10 a.m. and anybody is welcome, men or women. It’s completely free and helps a lot of people.” The group also plays bingo on Friday afternoons after lunch. But you don’t need to wait until Friday to enjoy a few games. The seniors regularly get together and play cards, put together puzzles or shoot the breeze in the time surrounding the lunch hour.

Tips for keep healthy while tending to your garden By Jackie Quinlan, PTA Donna P. Johnson Physical Therapy, OC After a long and tough upstate New York and Vermont winter, the thought of getting out to garden is most welcomed! Gardening is an activity that brings pleasure to many people. Planting, trimming, raking and mulching are just a few of the activities that are required to cultivate a beautiful garden whether it be flowers or vegetables. Though relaxing and enjoyable for many, gardening is not without risk of injury. Precautions can be taken to avoid repetitive stress injuries, such as tendonitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Additionally, gardening activities can cause pain or stiffness in the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists and knees. The American Society of Hand Therapists provides gardeners simple tips to help avoid painful injuries. By following these guidelines, one has a better chance of staying healthy and enjoying the benefits of gardening. Wear gloves at all times to avoid bacteria getting into a small irritation or cut that could develop into a major hand infection. Rubber or latex coated gloves may aid in grip when working in the soil. Thick leather or suede gloves may protect from thorns, cuts or scrapes while pruning. Keep your hands and arms covered. You will be better protected against poison ivy, insect bites and other skin irritants. Take a break every thirty minutes to an hour or switch to another activity to

Wear gloves at all times to avoid bacteria getting into a small irritation or cut that could develop into a major hand infection avoid overuse of repetitive motions such as digging and prolonged gripping that may cause tendinitis. Break up large tasks into short sessions. Rest and stretch to reduce muscle fatigue. Use a tool when digging into unfamiliar areas to avoid lacerations or punctures from sharp objects. Use sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Check for ticks after each gardening session. Practice good body mechanics. Lift heavy bags of dirt and mulch by keeping your back straight, bending at the knees and lifting with your legs while keeping the bag as close to your body as possible. When digging with a shovel, lift the dirt and turn your entire body to empty it. Avoid twisting and throwing the dirt. Use a cushion, stool or small bench when weeding. This helps to reduce the stress placed on your knees and spine. Use a wheelbarrow to transport heavy items, but don’t overfill it. Work below shoulder level whenever possible to prevent shoulder discomfort. If you have to work above shoulder level, do so for short periods of time and alternate or use both arms when possible. Keep elbows partially bent, especially when required to do resistive activities and do not rest body weight on elbows. Stop gardening if you feel pain or

fatigue. Most gardening injuries occur when you become tired and push to finish that “one last thing”. By stopping, you will minimize your chances for further injury. For people with chronic pain gardening tools have been adapted to meet their needs. Tools with longer handles and

larger handgrips help to avoid discomfort when bending or difficulty with gripping. Also, platform gardening using an elevated planting bed helps those with chronic low back pain and knee pain. Gardening helps to keep you fit and healthy. Major health advantages include stress relief, cardio-vascular assistance, and promotion of good sleep. Utilize the above recommendations and enjoy the fruits of your labor! References: http:/, http:/, http:/

By Lisa Taylor Certified Asthma Educator What is asthma? Asthma is a long term or chronic lung disease that causes the airways to swell and constrict (narrow). People with asthma have very sensitive airways that can react to certain inhaled substances causing inflammation or swelling. What are some of the signs and symptoms of asthma? Chest tightness: This may feel like something is squeezing your chest making it difficult to take a deep breath. Wheezing: This is a whistling or musical sound that occurs when you breathe. Cough: Coughing occurs more frequently at night and first thing in the morning. It may be productive or a dry cough with no production. Shortness of breath: This is a feeling that you â&#x20AC;&#x153;canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catchâ&#x20AC;? your breath or feel you can not get all of your air out. Â

How is it diagnosed? In children, sometimes diagnosing asthma can be very easy. If a child develops a cough or wheeze after running outside in the cold air, or whenever he gets around cats or horses, then a diagnosis of asthma is reasonable. This is especially true if the child feels perfectly well in between these episodes.

Adults can be a little trickier to diagnose. Their symptoms can also come and go, feeling perfectly fine most of the time. They may also have a dry cough that just wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away after having a cold or only feel short of breath when they exercise. In these cases a test called a Pulmonary Function Study is ordered by a doctor to determine if that person is having difficulty blowing the air out of his lungs. After the test, a quick acting bronchodilator (opens up the airways) is given to the patient and then retested. If there is at least a 12 persent increase in his ability to blow out his air, then it is reasonable to treat that person for asthma. However, many adults who are tested have a normal pulmonary function study. In this case, there is another test called a methacholine challenge. This test can cause the airways to narrow making it harder to blow out the air. If the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s airflow drops by at least 20 person then the patient is diagnosed with asthma. The person is given a bronchodilator to open his airways back up. How is asthma treated? Asthma can be treated with a variety of inhalers. Some are called quick relief inhalers. This is taken when a person with asthma is feeling short of breath and needs to open up his airways fast. Quick relief inhal-

ers are taken only when needed. Other inhalers are called controller medications. These medications work on the swelling of the airways and need to be taken daily to keep the swelling away. Is asthma curable? Asthma is not curable, but it can be controlled. With proper medications many people with asthma can live symptom free and maintain an active life style. Can you â&#x20AC;&#x153;grow outâ&#x20AC;? of asthma? There are as many as 30 to 50 percent of children with mild asthma that can have their asthma disappear before adulthood. In other cases, childhood symptoms can disappear around puberty only to come back in early adulthood. Are there different types of asthma? Allergic asthma is asthma that is triggered by something the person is allergic to, such as pollen, trees, mold, cat dander, etc. Non-allergic asthma is triggered by cold air, strong odors, chemicals, strong emotions such as laughing, crying, etc.


What should I do if I have been diagnosed with asthma? If you have been diagnosed with asthma, take your medications as prescribed. Follow the

Palpitations can be scary; but not usually harmful

A Helping Hand Greg Knapp of the American Legion Post 50 in Castleton presents Jo Ann Riley, Director of the Castleton Community Center with a check for $839 which represents the proceeds from a benefit dinner held at the Legion in early April. The donation will be used for the Castleton Community Seniors' elderly and disabled transportation program.

Haystack Hustlers stay busy In Pawlet, the Haystack Hustlers provide lunch and informative programs for the communities seniors. The Hustlers meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. On the second Tuesday, they gather at the Pawlet Church for a potluck lunch. Typically the lunch includes a program with a broad appeal to the group.

On the fourth Tuesday of each month, the seniors meet at the Mettawee Community School where they share lunch with students who present a program or share what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been learning in school. Anyone who would like to learn more about the Haystack Hustlers is encouraged to call Phyllis Mason at 325-3196.

Palpitations are extra heart beats usually originating in the top of the heart, the atrium, or the pumping chamber of the heart, the ventricle. Palpitations are premature beats occurring earlier than the expected normal heart beat. They are known as premature atrial or ventricular contractions. People feel palpitations and do not like what they feel. Fortunately, the gravity of concern about the symptom far outweighs the actual risk that premature heart beats have for most individuals. Thumping of the heart is often a frightening symptom with a subliminal message that the heart is going to race out of controlâ&#x20AC;Śthe consequence of this is easy to imagine. Take a deep breath. Cardiac arrest and collapse are rarely an occurrence with â&#x20AC;&#x153;palpitationsâ&#x20AC;? of the heart. The vast majority of palpitations are not harmful. In order to appreciate this, think about the fact that most headaches do not signify a brain tumor or stroke, and abdominal cramping does not mean an intestinal obstruction. Cardiologists ask the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What surrounds the heart palpitations and what is the company they keepâ&#x20AC;?, i.e., â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is the heart normal or abnormalâ&#x20AC;?? Most people with palpitations notice that the palpitations seem to come and go over time depending largely on external circumstances. Physical fatigue, poor sleep, dehydration, emotional stress, increased caffeine, tobacco, alcohol intake and over the counter cold medications are frequent companions of extra heart beats. Thyroid abnormalities, low potassium and magnesium blood levels also can cause premature beats. Importantly, all types of heart disease




Dr. Stanley Shapiro can cause premature heartbeats, but the vast majority of palpitations occur in people without significant heart disease. When you have palpitations, contact your primary care provider. They will be able to determine if testing or a cardiology consultation is required. Cardiologists have a wide variety of tests and treatment if there is a problem that needs management. Most importantly, you need not worry that you have a problem that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be defined, understood and addressed to bring a higher degree of peace of mind and body. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Talk was written by Stanley M. Shapiro, MD, FACC, Medical Director, Progressive Care Unit, Rutland Regional Medical Center; Cardiologist at Rutland Heart Center; Clinical Assistant Professor of Cardiology, University of Vermont, College of Medicine.

It's time to simply choose to live By Lindsay Schieffelin Gemini Fitness We live in a complex world today, and we have many choices in how we spend our time and how we want to live. Some choices have life changing implications, however. Consider Bob. Bob is in his mid-60s and has a problem with one knee. Over the years, he has gained some weight. At this point, his doctor has told him that his cholesterol is too high (so he needs to go on a Statin drug like Lipitor), his blood pressure is too high, and he has a high risk for stroke. If he gains any more weight, Bob will get Type II diabetes. Bob’s health has been gradually declining for years, but he has chosen not to do anything about it. He has chosen to be a victim. His wife is worried sick about him. She wishes he would just be more physically active. His children and grandchildren see him sitting all day doing nothing, and they worry too. Bob continues to eat, complain about his knee, and watch television. He

has chosen to let him self go. A potentially fatal choice. Are you like Bob? Does everyone around you worry about your health, but you don’t want to change anything? Then consider Mary. Mary is also middle aged. She is overweight and had a knee replacement operation two years ago. She was headed down the same path as Bob, except she made a different choice. She chose life! Mary joined a fitness center and started becoming more fit. She began losing weight, her energy level increased, she felt better about herself, so she kept doing it. She was taken off her cholesterol medication, her blood pressure is down, her bone density is up, and she has made new friends in the fitness center. Mary has chosen to live! Not everybody is excited at the prospect of “doing exercise”, but everybodyikes the way they feel and look after they have been exercising. If there is a fountain of youth, keeping fit is it! Here are some typical questions I get

from seniors. I don’t know how to use all those machines. They are intimidating! I don’t know anyone who “gets” the machines the first time, but if you go to a fitness center where they work with seniors and guide you every day, you will feel right at home in a week or two. I am overweight and out of shape. I don’t feel comfortable going into a fitness center! That is exactly what fitness centers are for – helping people like you change their lives. Just don’t choose a fitness center that caters primarily to the muscle heads and ignores seniors. Find one where they enjoy helping anyone who walks through the door. I have had knee/hip/back/shoulder surgery, so I can’t really do anything. Yes you can! You would be amazed how you can change your life regardless of how many physical challenges you face. It all comes down to desire. If you think you can’t, you won’t. But if you believe you can, you will! Joining a fitness center can be expen-

sive. My budget is tight. We all have to make tough budget choices in this economy. But which of these two alternative scenarios makes more financial sense to you. Choice 1: Do nothing, have major disease become part of your daily life, pay more doctor’s bills, higher co-payments for more drugs, and become more dependent on the medical system and your family to stay alive. Choice 2: Take 30 minutes/day, three days/week to improve your health and fitness. Spend $10/week (or so) at a fitness center in order to lower your weight, help avoid (or mitigate) almost every known disease, limit doctors bills to one annual checkup, and reduce drug co-pays to a minimal amount. Whether you are 20 years old or 90, we all have our own physical or health challenges. But anybody can improve his/ her life and feel younger and stronger again. It’s your choice – to remain sedentary and feel defeated, or to take back control of your life. Choose to live!
