Vermont artists open their doors If it’s Memorial Day weekend in Vermont, there must be yellow signs dotting many roads. The signs will direct travelers to the workspaces of 259 artists and craftspeople who will open their studios to the public for Vermont Open Studio Weekend’s 20th year. The weekend marks an opportunity for people to meet a wide variety of artists and craftspeople in their studios, on May 26 and 27. Visitors will be able to learn how art and craft is made at the studios of glassblowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carv-

ers. Many galleries will also host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with Vermont Open Studio Weekend. Studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The Crafts Council will honor two craft studios that have been part of Open Studio for all 20 years: Glassblowers Harry and Wendy Besett from Hardwick and furniture maker Bob Gasperetti from Mount Tabor. Also being honored by the VCC are other long-time participants including individuals, collaborative groups of artists, and


The Fair Haven Town Green will be alive with activity next weekend as the community gears up for its Spring Fling Memorial Day celebration. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 26, on the Town Green and other locales throughout the community. Held in celebration of Memorial Day, the event has become a local tradition, held annually for more than 20 years. The event features a number of civic groups who band together for a day of remembrance and family fun. One of the highlights of the day is the Memorial Day parade, which is set to step off from the north side of the Town Green at approximately 1 p.m. “It’s one of the biggest parades in the area,” said Kerry Fowler, president of the Vermont Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce. “We get quite a crowd.”

Post office hours to shrink in smaller centers Pawlet, West Pawlet, Rupert, West Rupert, Hydeville, Middletown Springs and Danby all affected Several smaller post offices around the region are facing substantial cuts in hours, although the latest plan to reform the U.S. Postal Service does not cut any altogether. West Pawlet, Hydeville, and West Rupert will see their retail hours halved from eight hours a day to four. Pawlet, Middletown Springs, and Danby will see their hours reduced from eight to six. Rupert will see its hours cut from six a day to four. Nearby post offices in Hampton, NY, North Granville, NY and Middle Granville, NY, will see their hour reduced as well. The reduction is expected to affect retail hours only. Access to post office boxes will not change. The Rupert post office was one of 14 offices across Vermont that was to be cut altogether, but has been saved after the Postal Service reversed course on a plan that would have closed

thousands of offices around the country. The postal service announced last summer that Rupert was one of 3,700 low-revenue rural post offices that were targeted for closure as the struggling agency attempted to address its mounting financial woes, blamed largely on the increased use of online communication and rising costs. But the agency launched a new strategy last Wednesday that will keep those offices open. “This is in response to what we have heard from rural customers who want to maintain their identity, zip code and continue to have a postal presence in their community,” said Dennis Tarney, a spokesperson for the USPS.

Bernie Sanders said, “The good news is that all 15 rural post offices slated to be shut down in Vermont will remain open.

The truth is that reducing hours in rural post load, and costumer volume. “It came down to how many offices will not save significant hours make sense for the number amounts compared to the Postal Service’s overall budget.” of customer visits,” he said.

tions. A public comment period will be held to gauge opinion on the new plan, postal service officials said. On its website, the agency said survey research conducted by the Opinion Research Corp. in February, showed 54 percent of rural customers would prefer the new solution to maintain their local post office. The announcement comes a few weeks after the Senate approved a measure to give the postal service an $11 billion cash infusion, mostly from overpayments it made into one of its pension funds. The measure would have also placed a one-year moratorium on the closure of all rural post offices. But that plan was criticized by the postal service for not giving it enough latitude to make the decisions it needed to remain solvent, and so it was set to close thousands of post offices beginning this week. Last week’s announcement puts those plans on hold. Officials estimate the new strategy could save the agency $500 million a year. The agency posted an $8 billion deficit last year and post office visits have declined 27 percent since 2005.

Tinmouth contra dance season winds up May 25 Come to an exuberant contra dance with Hannah Otten calling and toe-tapping music by Pete Sutherland on fiddle and Brendan Taaffe on guitar at the Tinmouth Community Center on Friday May 25, from 8 to 11 p.m. It is the last contra dance in Tinmouth before the summer hiatus. A contra dance uses square dance moves, but is done in long lines to live music. All dances are taught and you do not need a partner. Beginners are always welcome, although dances become more challenging as the night progresses, so early arrival is recommended for beginning dancers. The dance takes place in the Tinmouth Community Center, Route 140 in the center of Tinmouth. Dancing takes place every fourth Friday of the month. Please bring clean, non-marring shoes. Admission is $9, $7 for teens and free for children 12 and under. Refreshments will be available. Call 235-2718 for info or directions or www. for directions.

Martha Fitch, executive director of the Vermont Crafts Council says that Open Studio Weekend is “new” each year because the groups of studio and gallery sites vary annually. According to Fitch, “About 40 percent of the map changes each year as studios take a year off, and new studios join the tour. This accounts for about 80 new sites every year and allows for new geographic clusters to emerge.” The Vermont Crafts Council publishes a free map booklet with directions to participating sites. Additional information, can be found online at www. or by calling the Vermont Crafts Council at 802-223-3380.

Vyki"Tgogodgtu Roger Leach Just a short blurb. Not an obit, but a reminder that an obit was coming. And that tiny piece in the paper brought tears to my eyes as I began thinking back on all the old guys I have befriended in my 30-plus years of work in hardware. Hardware stores can be tough. There’s a lot of nooks and crannies and alleyways in those multipurpose stores. Electrical and plumbing can be difficult, but you get a lot of

help and learn fast by dealing with the older craftsman. It’s all gone by so fast that Mike Welch and Greg Howard are two of the older guys (but you’ll have to tell them cause I’m not that kind of guy). Now hardware seems cut and dry, however, the old farmers will walk in with this weird mess and if you find the parts they’ll show you how they’re going to improvise. At that point you just stand back, listen and learn.

And I have learned how baling twine and duct tape work, but only as a last resort. I surely learned a lot of shortcuts from the old time farm boys like Roger Leach. What a great, smart mellow old man. He started every visit out with a wide face grin. Every time I greeted him with “Roger, Dodger, Charlie Brown.” May God be with you, Roger Leach. — Twig Canfield

Civil War widow to visit Slate Valley Museum The Slate Valley Museum will present the final speaker of its 18-month-long exhibit “Rivals in Slate, Brothers in War: The Slate Valley Unites for the Union Cause” at 2 p.m., Sunday, May 20, when Maxine Getty returns to offer a program on the experiences of women who lost their husbands during the Civil War. Getty will portray Rebecca Cameron, a Civil War widow and will talk about the complex customs surrounding mourning during the Civil War and how the families left behind dealt with the loss of so many loved ones. The Civil War brought a time of great change and tragedy for many of the women and noncombatants left on the home front during the war. This national disaster coincided with a period of dramatic growth and an increase in the elaborate nature of mourning customs in the country. Women followed rules of decorum in publically displaying their state of mourning through clothing, jewelry, correspondence and attendance (or not attending) social functions. Getty brings this world to


life through Cameron, a newly widowed woman living during the Civil War. Through her eyes visitors will learn about the complicated role mourning had on the daily life of those living during the Civil War and how society and entrenched mourning customs gave structure to a time when many faced the deaths of loved ones on the battlefield. Getty will bring original examples of mourning clothing and accessories to illustrate how large an aspect of the Civil War’s material culture these pieces were. Enjoy this rare chance to learn how the famous battles of the Civil War affected the many men, women, and children who lost loved ones while seeing surviving examples of this dramatic period of our country’s history. This will be one of the final opportunities for visitors to see the Civil War exhibit, which explores the impact of the Civil War on the people of the Slate Valley through the jour nals, oral histories, sketches, and artifacts of Slate Valley residents. Discover the story of how the Slate Valley

Mettawee School hosts author/illustrator McCully shares her secrets with young readers D{"Dknn"Vquecpq Award-winning author and illustrator Emily Arnold McCully, who first discovered she wanted to write in first grade, had a direct message for the Mettawee School first-graders she was working with Wednesday afternoon. “I loved telling stories, but I did not want to please other people. I wanted to please myself,” she said. “You should remember that when you write. Please yourself.” McCully, whose “Mirette on the High Wire” won the Caldecott award for distinguished children’s picture books, is in her 70s and does not do many school visits these days. But when Mettawee librarian Kelly Ahlfeld, who tries to arrange an author visit every year, reached out and offered the bonus of an overnight visit to Vermont, the Albany-area author gladly agreed. “Who can turn down a visit to Vermont,” she said, laughing. Ahlfeld said she chose to contact McCully because her book “Wonder Horse” was a 2011 Vermont Red Clover Award nominee for Best Picture Book. “It’s a picture book, so I thought about having her come for the younger students, then I discovered she had all the books the older kids would like, so I wanted to bring her in for two days and speak with all the classes. McCully focused on writing with the older students and on illustration with the younger ones. Her technique for teaching about illustration was to start with a blank drawing space and quickly sketch in a pirate, then cajole the students into telling her what else she needed to add to complete the story. After filling the board with all the details, she took the students through the writing process, starting from her storytelling ideas when she was a young girl and showing them drawings and paintings and a mock up

She simplified the storytelling process by telling students, “You make a character, he wants something, and he gets it or he doesn’t.” She described the writing process as “a series of choices.” McCully’s books range from “Picnic,” which originally had no words, to standard comic-drawn children’s books, to a series of historical picture books, ranging

from “The Bobbin Girl, about the Lowell textile mills to “The Secret Cave: Discovering Lascaux,” to her personal favorite, “The Beautiful Warrior: The Legend of the Nun’s Kung Fu.” Her illustrations are often in lush watercolors. Ahlfeld said the funding for McCully’s visit came from the proceeds of a book fair and through a donation from the school’s Parent Teacher Organization.

Poultney students ace Vt. history day At the Vermont History Day competition March 31 in Barre, 13 Poultney students qualified to represent the state of Vermont at National History Day this June 10-14 in College Park, Md. The students are Riley Williams, Robbie Brill, Justin Davenport, Koal Oddo, Justine Mulholland, Tommy Beayon, Dakotah Heuckeroth, Ryan Wood, Christopher Cook, Hannah McLellan, and Brianna Brayton from Poultney Elementary School, and Calvin Brooks from Poultney High School. National History Day is a nationally acclaimed academic enrichment program that promotes the study of history in our schools. Each year students create exhibits, documentaries, perfor mances, websites and papers about a topic related to the NHD theme. This year’s theme is “Revolution, Reaction, Reform.” Out of only 50 Vermont students qualifying for National History Day, an amazing 13 were from Poultney. The students’ participation in the national contest depends on whether they can raise $2,500 in sponsorships. Many groups and businesses have been very generous in supporting this trip in the past and organizers are

We strongly believe that attending the NHD contest will contribute to the education of these students in a way few experiences can. The national contest is an exceptional opportunity for the students to visit Washington, D.C., while meeting and competing against other students from around the country.

Vermont competition. Both advisors said the students put long, dedicated hours into their projects, and their hard work paid off. They also wanted to extend a special thanks to Melissa Kristiansen, who was a tremendous help in assisting with technology challenges. Brooks received the required score to go to Nationals in Washington, D.C., for the second time, the first when he was in sixth grade. Last year while in seventh grade, he won first place in Vermont but did not score high enough to go. This year he presented in the junior division individual documentary on Vermont and Burgoyne’s Campaign of the Revolutionary War, titled “Special Report: Vermont Reacts to Burgoyne.” Brooks used green screen computer technology to edit it and made it look like a newscast. He portrays the field reporter, is the director, producer, screenplay writer, cinematographer, and did all the special effects. Dailey did a website on the Scopes Monkey Trial, the famous 1925 trial and debate of evolution versus creationism. Mead and LaRose created a website based on The Beatles. To view the site visit http://35787552.nhd.weebly. com The Nationals begin June 10 and end with the awards ceremony on June 14.

World Book Night held on April 23 at the Wells Village Library was a success! Sharon Undal, Pat Steurnagle, Judi Dreher and Erin Thompson are holding copies of their free book, “Peace Like a River” by Leif Enger.




As they have done for the past few years, the people of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Wells, will gather on the village green in front of the Church on Sunday, May 27, at 9 a.m. to offer prayers for the farms and farm families of the Wells area, for the farmers of Vermont and of this country, and for all in the world who work the land. This observance marks a Christian practice that began in the fifth century. On this day prayers for a

good harvest and the welfare of farmers and their families are offered. Following this brief service of prayer, the congregation will move to the church for the Holy Eucharist, followed by a coffee hour. The members of St. Paul’s invite one and all to join them in this observance and, if they wish, for the service in the church which follows. The church is located on the village green at East Wells Road.
