BELLOWS FALLS, VT -The first person I met at the 75th Alumni Association Weekend in Bellows Falls was Lori Crawford, class of ’87, who stated, “I can’t believe it’s here.” Lori introduced me to her daughter Kamelia who just graduated from Bellows Falls Union High School.
Lori glowingly described her daughter by saying, “Kamelia is someone who has accomplished a lot and participated in many sports teams. I am very proud of her.” The 75th Association Weekend was a three day celebration complete with dances, various class reunions and culminated
with the Alumni Association Parade. The parade started with the Crowning of the Alumni Queen who was selected by the 2012 class. Sarah Dumont, the winner, was one out of five deserving contestants. See "B.F. Alumni" Cont. on Page 2A
Springfield Alumni Parade Rolled and Rocked
BY CINDY JOHNSON The Shopper SPRINGFIELD, VT -The 58th Annual Springfield Alumni Parade started late, but once it began to roll it rocked... from Clinton Street to Riverside Middle School. Shiny tractors, classic cars, and candy-colored, racing-striped hot rods revved up to start things off. Gail Koledo, Vice President of the Alumni Association, said they had sold 500 boxes of popcorn, with much thanks to the Springfield Cinema for helping out to meet the demand. Gail, the class of '83, is a third generation graduate of Springfield High, her kids are fourth, and her grandchildren will be the fifth someday, she said proudly. Riding in the sunshine of success were SHS 2012 valedictorian Sarah Gray and salutatorian Lauren Fish. The lucky Millett scholarship recipients smiled and waved as they rolled by, while the superintendents and principals of SHS took their places in the procession. Sinai Joe's Clown Unit zipped about on their tiny ATVs spreading fun with their zany antics. And Bob Flint, from the class of 1980, rode as a special honored guest. Springfield Citizen of the Year Marita Johnson sailed by in style on a canary yellow Camaro. Two other floats highlighting the day included the Back to '82 float with Rocky III and a miniature house representing an average home price of $66,500 in 1982, and a replica of the recently replaced bridge spanning the Black River to the Fellows Building-the new home of the Springfield Health Center. The Shriners of Brattleboro unit of the Cairo Oriental Band, the Gurney Bros. mechanical pipe organ, kilted bagpipers, and a fife and drum corp in colonial dress marched down Main Street adding the music of the day. The gold and purple Cub Scouts on a float complete with a camping tent held the road. Then the proud and stoic National Guard marched solemnly by, followed by the Relay For Life, the Parent Child Center, and wagons of flowers and cut-out cows heralding the Windsor County Agricultural Fair coming up on July 7 and 8. Springfield alumni canvassed the parade route collecting for the Scholarship Fund which awarded $12,000 to worthy Springfield graduates this year. Kelly Stettner of the Black River Action Team kept the Town clean by making the rounds up and down the route collecting empty bottles and cans. At the end of the route there was RJ's food truck and Friendly's provided ice cream treats and a bouncy tent was set-up for the kids. Other Alumni weekend events included the 9th Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Crown Point Country Club on Friday and the S.H.S.A.A. Annual Banquet at the Elks Club Friday evening. On Saturday following the parade, the Alumni Association held its annual meeting under a tent at the Riverside Middle School followed by both the men's and women's Springfield High alumni soccer games at Brown Field in the late afternoon.
WEATHERSFIELD, VT -“Bringing Newell Green Home” was the title of an exhibit and sale of 1930’s and 1950’s Black and White photographs at the Weathersfield Proctor Library in Ascutney on Friday evening. Green was a regular contributor to Vermont Life magazine and his photographs appeared in books on Vermont. Newell Green, who was born in 1901 and died at his home in Ascutney in 1993 at the age of 92. During his lifetime he received both National and International recognition for his photographic work. He was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society, a Fellowship of the Photographic Society of America, and Honorary Membership of the New England Camera Club Council. He won the Stuyvesant Peabody Memorial Award “for outstanding achievement in Pictorial Photography” and was elected an Honorary Member (one of 30 out of 15,000 members) of the Photographic Society of America; Quite an achievement despite being born with a spastic form of cerebral palsy. Green also graduated from Amherst College with the Class of 1923 then took up photography in his late 20s. His camera work was carried out with a tripod to steady the camera. He shot some of his film with Linhof Technica and Rolleiflex cameras. Thirty-six of his framed and matted prints were on display and for sale. The majority depicting local scenery some with stunning long range views, looking down on old barns and farmsteads, at that early time uninterrupted by trees and foliage. Visitors were asked to help identify some of the buildings he chose to photograph in Weathersfield, Cavendish and Reading. Scenes of barns and trees, especially the renowned Weathersfield Birches in winter showed his discerning eye with the use of late afternoon shadows. Trees, dirt roads and hayfields were his subjects as well as drifts of winter snow. But Green did use several models, a “Man with Paper” reading the Vermont Journal, an elderly man with hat sitting with rake “The Shadow of Years” and Larry French then a boy trying to open a latched door – “Big Stretch.” Larry French and his sister Susan Weeks came to the exhibit and were surprised to see the “Big Stretch”. “That’s me,” French said as he walked through the door. Both French and Weeks used to play in the Green’s barns and frequently posed as models for Newell. Their grandfather, Duane Banister owned a photographic studio in Tremont Square, Claremont and was a friend of Green’s. French, who purchased the print, now lives in Sunapee and his sister still resides in the French homestead in Charlestown. When Green passed away the entire collection of negatives and prints were left to his close friend of 40 years, Les Campbell from Belchertown, MA. Campbell has been formatting and framing many of Green’s prints for exhibit and sale. He wrote of his late friend, “perhaps no other photographer has surmounted such distressing physical handicaps to arrive as such success.” Campbell would like to preserve Green’s work and as he sorts through more negatives and prints he hopes to put together another show for Weathersfield. Heather Shand of Ascutney lives close to the old Green homestead and her parents Cookie and Ernie remember visiting exhibits that Green hosted in one of his barns in the 1970s. Heather wrote a school paper on Green and was instrumental in arranging the exhibit and is representing him locally. The Weathersfield Proctor Library was the recipient of a percentage of the sales. For further information on Green’s prints, Shand can be reached at 802-674-5021.
Larry French of Sunapee and his sister Susan Weeks of Charlestown show a photograph taken by Newell Green of Larry as a boy. Their father was a friend of Newell's and both siblings were models for Newell Green photographs. Larry purchased this one, a boy trying to open latched door - "Big Stretch"

REGION - After being separated from birth for 61 years, Deann Roderick met the sister she never knew she had. Gail Wellman was 2 years old and had been placed in a foster home before Deann was born. Brother Herb Monroe learned about Deann and planned a reunion for the girls to meet for the first time, last weekend. Deann had been invited to the family reunion Herb had planned, but was not told she had a sister who would be there. Both girls were aware they had a brother Herb, but they did not know about each other. Herb formally introduced them to each other, and the
day became a wonderful day complete with hugs, tears and laughter. The girls became a real family. Deann has two daughters, Becky and Angela, and a son Manuel. Gail became an instant aunt with two nieces and a nephew she never knew she had. Wellman said it was a great reunion. “I was so happy to meet my sister.” The girls will now be able to keep in touch and be a family again, and the reunions will be a time to catch up on the “middle” years.

Kerry Lawlor, announcer of the event for six years, kept the proceedings going with witty asides. When the Class of ’75 came down with the theme of The Emperor’s New Clothes (including a leading man wearing limited at-
tire), Kerry deadpanned, “Maybe next year we should just stick to the floats.” The weekend was dedicated to the memory of Gail Brandon who served as the Alumni Association’s treasurer from 1968-2011. Gail was a quiet, effective individual who gave timeless work and energy to the association while taking no credit

NORTH SPRINGFIELD, VT – North School was home to many students over the years. The former students and parents were invited to tour the building on Saturday, June 16 after the Alumni Parade. The North School Committee opened the school from 12 noon to 3 p.m. for folks to tour and reminisce. Many people came to see their old school. Jim Kraft went to school here from 1964 to 1968. He was looking through the photo albums of class pictures. He found a picture of his younger brother. The committee has had the building checked out and is delighted at was found or rather not found. The furnace has some asbestos around it, but
there is no other asbestos. Although not tested yet, the paint is believed to be lead paint. “But there are ways to fix that, “ said one committee member. Ira Emerson, President of the Springfield Players, was there to tour, but also to find information to help the players in their quest to buy their building. Bill Hannah during his tour and trip down memory lane said, “Dad went to school here too. He was fire chief of the North Springfield Fire Station. And my grandfather was before him. There were 7 schools in North Springfield in the day.” The building itself has seen many changes in over 100 years. The sec-
(L to R) Chip Woods, Donna Emerson Jacobs, Bill Hannah and Ira Emerson discuss memories of the Old North School.
ond floor stage became a nurse’s office and the wall that cranked out for classrooms is out permanently until some funds are raised to start work in refurbishing the old school. Many rooms were created when the Gateway school rented the building. On first floor the rooms are pretty much the way they were in the 1960’s. The grounds are still used by the Rec Department. The area is still available to those who want to play or walk around the grounds. The North School Committee’s next meeting is July 3 at 7 p.m. in the warming hut on the property. Come brainstorm ideas for raising monies. If you write grants and are willing to help, just show up.
Vermont Biomass Development Partners Respond to Public Concerns with Design Modifications
NORTH SPRINGFIELD, VT -Winstanley Enterprises and Weston Solutions, Inc.(WESTON®), joint venture partners in the proposed North Springfield Sustainable Energy Project (NSSEP),have announced improvements to address community concerns regarding development of a 35 MW wood chip fueled biomass plant in the North Springfield Industrial Park. Design enhancements will drastically reduce water requirements by utilizing aircooled technology. Since December 2011, the NSSEP technical team has conducted multiprong public outreach efforts including public meetings, civic group presentations, website postings, and ‘open door hours’ so residents could gain a better understanding of the project and voice any concerns. The team also worked with the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) and the Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC) early in the process to identify and address technical challenges. “At WESTON we are committed to projects that work for the environment, for jobs, and for the community as a whole,” stated Kathleen McGinty, WESTON’s senior vice president who oversees its Green Development Division. “We are grateful to our neighbors and to the state agencies for sharing their thoughts with us about how to shape our project in the most beneficial way possible. The changes we made are directly responsive to those ideas and we are pleased that our project is even better for the good input we’ve received.” The NSSEP team focused on three main areas of concern—air, water consumption and forestry practices—raised during the outreach activities, and modified their biomass plant design to deliver long lasting environmental benefits. “We have been committed to this region and Vermont for decades,” noted Adam Winstanley, the President of Winstanley Enterprises who has been directly involved with the project since its inception. “With all projects there is a balance of economic and environmental benefits we hope to achieve and we believe our improvements will dramatically increase the environmental side of the equation.” The quantity of water that would be needed for the plant to operate was of significant concern to citizens and ANR. By switching from water-cooled condensers to air-cooled condensers, the amount of water needed has been reduced from an estimated 500,000-700,000 gallons of water a day to less than 30,000 gallons, a reduction of over 90%. Vermont resident Dan Ingold, a Senior Technical Director at WESTON who is overseeing the project stated, “The capital cost of the air-cooled technology is higher than water based cooling, but the operating costs are lower, and the investment is well worth the environmental benefit to the community. I’m very pleased we’re able to incorporate this technology.” With this reduction, the project can now capture most of the water it needs from the rooftop of 36 Precision Drive (adjacent to the vacant site in the North Springfield Industrial Park) or purchase it from the Town of Springfield as needed versus other water supply options. NSSEP will also purchase a 750,000 gallon water tank to store excess rainwater which will be available to the local fire department for emergency back-up. Though the biomass facility would be located within an existing industrial park, nearby residents expressed concerns that smaller wood chips may blow onto their properties. To address this, the NSSEP team will construct a fuel shelter with arched steel trusses to optimize airflow and protect wood chips from the elements. It will also keep the moisture levels lower which in turn will help to increase boiler efficiency. Rainwater from the shelter’s roof will also be harvested and stored for use in operations. Working with the VNRC, the NSSEP team has also developed a Wood Chip Harvesting Policy to promote sustainable forestry to address concerns that the demand for wood chips might lead to the loss of established forests. The policy includes guidelines for managing wood harvesting near sensitive sites, controlling the spread of invasive species, encouraging soil replenishment, facilitating tree growth, and retaining licensed staff to help ensure adherence to acceptable forestry practices. One last unique aspect is that this is a cogeneration project, and includes a District Heat system that will supply low-cost hot water to the North Springfield Industrial Park. The North Springfield Sustainable Energy Project (NSSEP) team is comprised of a joint venture between Winstanley Enterprises LLC, a vertically integrated commercial real estate developer and investor, and Weston Solutions, Inc. (WESTON®), a leading environmental and redevelopment company. Founded in 1973, Winstanley has successfully redeveloped over 50 properties throughout New England, renovating vacant and underutilized properties including projects in both Brattleboro and Springfield, Vermont. Since 1957, WESTON has provided sustainable solutions spanning such areas as Brownfield redevelopment, renewable energy and green development/construction. The NSSEP team is committed to working closely with local officials on projects that are not only economically viable and ecologically sustainable, but also meet the best interests of the community.

NORTH SPRINGFIELD, VT -On behalf of the Concerned Citizens of North Springfield and Springfield, the members of the North Springfield Action Group (NoSagVt) would like to invite all citizens of Springfield, North Springfield, Chester, Weathersfield, and the surrounding areas to join us for a presentation on: June 26th at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 21 Fairground Road, Springfield, VT 05156 for a presentation on: A “Vermont-Scale” Approach to Renewable Energy: How We Return Power to the People. Vermont is facing a “gold-rush” towards renewable energy development, but as projects get proposed they almost immediately generate opposition and controversy. Lukas Snelling, Executive Director of Energize Vermont examines what’s wrong with the process of developing renewable energy in Vermont today and proposes a new path towards a renewable energy future that supports community input, combats climate change, and ensures appropriate “Vermont-scale” energy development. About Energize Vermont: Energize Vermont is a non-profit organization that advocates for renewable energy solutions that are in harmony with the irreplaceable character of Vermont and contribute to the people's well-being. Currently the organization opposes utilityscale developments that haven’t incorporated community input and is facilitating the development of two community-owned solar projects in Vermont.

Stevens High School in Claremont, New Hampshire is proud to host one of the oldest active high school alumni associations in the nation. The school was built with a gift from Paran Stevens and was opened in 1868. Every year, alumni members come from almost every state in the nation to revisit their old Alma Mater. The festivities start early in the year when the alumni association picks a theme, and this theme is carried out throughout the entire Alumni weekend. There is always a big parade, bands and many floats, with prizes for the top entries. A banquet and a dance are among the festivities planned for the weekend. Best of all, are the renewal of old acquaintances. Keeping track of your classmates as they walk through life is a rewarding experience. Knowing you will see them again next year makes the hard times a little easier to get through. Some people start planning in July for the next year’s June “vacation” to the days of yesteryear when they were high school seniors with the whole world ahead of them. Most schools have an alumni association, an association of graduates and former students of the school. Most hold meetings or get-togethers around the time of the current class’s graduation. Some publish newsletters staying in touch all year long, and most help raise money for their Alma Mater to purchase special items the school might need. Alumni’s offer support to new members from the graduating class and provide a forum to develop new friendships and business relationships. Vermont and New Hampshire have many high schools, some regional, some small town, and all have an alumni association of some sort. Most do not have the longevity that Stevens’ High School does. People move away, they lose contact with school chums and never think of them until they hear a song on the “Oldies” station that was popular during their high school years. The second oldest active Alumni Association in the nation is the Downingtown Area High School Alumni Association located in downtown Los Angeles and it is the second oldest continually operating public high school alumni association in the United States. The Downingtown Area High School Alumni Association has been in existence since 1884. Valley schools interested in an active alumni association should contact Stevens High School and see how it’s done. The Twin State Valley should be very proud to have Steven’s High School in their area, the school with the oldest active Alumni Association in the entire nation. Three Cheers for Stevens High. ~BM~

Guest Editorial
A problematic law was recently passed wherein a small town banned the use of swearwords in public. If you curse in a public place, including on the sidewalk, you will be fined $20. Before you can analyze this rule rationally, you have to realize that the town doesn't really care about your language. This is another excuse for the extraction of extra money from the taxpayer by a municipality which is incapable of living within its budget. They will not admit that, of course. In this case, an emotional appeal about protect-
Musings on The Passing Scene
Letters to the Editor
Letter to the Editor: I am heartbroken that I will be leaving CAES this year. I wanted to thank everyone for letting me be a part of Chester. I have wholeheartedly loved its residents, and the Chester Andover Elementary School which I have called my life for almost twenty years. I have been so fortunate to workwith a group of people that have the common goal of educating your children to create a better future for them and for all of us. They inspire, and  create enthusiasm for life long learning.
ing the children from bad language will be trotted out. None of us wants our children to be exposed to the verbal outpourings of some potty-mouthed cretin, but the coarseness of our current society wont be reversed by this kind of statute. That will only occur when we teach our children that bad language is the resort of ignorant. Most important is the fact that it is a violation of the right of free speech no matter how well-intended. The same freedom of speech which makes me grit my teeth when applied to flag-burning also protects the
poor soul whose grocery bag breaks, spilling stuff all over the parking lot, and, quite understandably says, "Oh! D..n." Popular culture has become increasingly coarse, but passing silly, unenforceable laws is not the answer. Proper upbringing by parents who sincerely care. Education in manners, consideration of others, the arts, good taste, and language skills will accomplish far more in bringing about a more civil society. Think about it. The Mountain Curmudgeon
Most of all, I thank you for sharing your children with me. I have loved their energy, their hugs, their jokes and their laughter, their smiles, their curiosity, their ideas and sometimes the crazy rational that comes with the newness of youth. I have learned so much from them and they made coming to work a joy. I am delighted when past students come back to see me or they send me a Christmas card or when I am in a grocery store and they call out "Hi Mrs. Plunkard". I will miss that. I am always excited when they tell me
about their path in college, their new family, the great job they have or when they bring their own children to kindergarten. I have enjoyed watching them grow and seeing the successful lives they have created. My hope is that somewhere along the line, I have played a part in convincing them that they have a voice, that they can make a difference and that they will always have the responsibility of being their brothers keeper. I have had high hopes for all my kids and I will miss my Chester. I have truly been blessed. Becky Plunkard

To the Editor, I am writing to acknowledge the fabulous season that the GMUHS JV Girls softball team had this spring. They ended the season undefeated af-
ter playing some tough teams such as Poultney, Whitcomb, Leland & Gray, Windsor and Springfield. They had a dedicated coach in Mike Leclair and all the girls worked hard to make the season
a memorable one. The GMUHS community is proud of their accomplishment. Great job, girls! Carla Stewart Chester, VT

107th Annual Bellows Falls Alumni Weekend- A Meeting of Generations
BY JOEL SLUTSKY The Shopper BELLOWS FALLS, VT -The first person I met at the 75th Alumni Association Weekend in Bellows Falls was Lori Crawford, class of ’87, who stated, “I can’t believe it’s here.” Lori introduced me to her daughter Kamelia who just graduated from Bellows Falls Union High School. Lori glowingly described her daughter by saying, “Kamelia is someone who has accomplished a lot and participated in many sports teams. I am very proud of her.” The 75th Association Weekend was a three day celebration complete with dances, various class reunions and culminated with the Alumni Association Parade. The parade started with the Crowning of the Alumni Queen who was selected by the 2012 class. Sarah Dumont, the winner, was one out of five deserving contestants. Sarah is the daughter of Marc and Lisa Dumont of Rockingham and will be attending Johnson and Wales University this fall. Kerry Lawlor, announcer of the event for six years, kept the proceedings going with witty asides. When the Class of ’75 came down with the theme of The Emperor’s New Clothes (including a leading man wearing limited attire), Kerry deadpanned, “Maybe next year we should just stick to the floats.” The weekend was dedicated to the memory of Gail Brandon who served as the Alumni Association’s treasurer from 1968-2011. Gail was a quiet, effective individual who gave timeless work and energy to the association while taking no credit and never bringing attention to herself. The president of the Alumni Association, Josh Kemp, explained that the dedication in Gail’s memory was a most fitting tribute, and for the first time in 75 years took the place of a Grand Marshall. The presence of the American Legion Color Guard Post #4 from Norwich, Connecticut, is a longtime tradition. Theodis Morris said that the unit, who have been in attendance since the 1960’s, come in tribute to their Bellows Falls High School basketball coach, Tim Ryan. When the unit arrives they connect with Bellow’s Falls Post 37. Many in the crowd were excited about the event including Doug MacPhee, class of ’58, who said, “It was a gorgeous day, a great day.” Carolyn Frisa, from Chester, who works in Bellows Falls, “loves the floats and the bands.” The place came alive with the music of the Bellows Falls Marching Band, Bellows Falls High School Band, the Saxton’s River Bell Ringers and many others. The class of 2012 came rolling down towards the square with Beach Boy music blasting. The 50-year class of 1962 was well represented with 103 attendees. As the class of 2012 came down off their floats, they went down a reception line to be congratulated by the class of ’62. The 50-year class’s float was in the theme of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. After stepping down from her throne, Julie Slobadnjak of Virginia Beach, said, “I’m excited and proud that so many classmates showed up.” Two other classmates of ’62 were Carol Godsoe Clemens and Paula Clemens Collins. Carol said, “We don’t want this event to end.” Another ’62 alum, Colleen Crotty Barrett, former president of Southwest Airlines, has given a $25,000 donation to the Bellows Falls Alumni Scholarship Fund. The day ended with the association’s annual meeting at which several awards were presented for floats, bands, attendance and longest distance travelled to the event. The float winners were Grand Prize: 1977, The Emperor’s New Clothes; 2nd Prize: 1966, Mary Poppins; 3rd Prize: 1982, As Time Flies By; !st Honorable Mention: 1987, 25 years out and we finally see the lights!; 2nd Honorable Mention: 1967, Still Spaced Out; Grand Marshall Award: 1962, Snow White; and the 1st Prize Professional Bands: Windsor Fife and Drum, Windsor, CT.

CRVBL Roundup
Bellows Falls Union High School Track Athletes compete in New England Regionals
Keene 10, Ludlow 5 LUDLOW - The Keene Black Dawgs moved into a tie with Claremont at the top of the CRVBL standings with a 10-5 victory over the Ludlow Athletics Saturday night. Keene's scheduled starting pitcher, Tim Santaw, was unavoidably late to the game so a trio of position players was pressed into service in the first inning. The unfortunate result was that Ludlow’s first 4 batters crossed the plate. Fortunately, first baseman Bruce “Wakefield” Summers stopped the circus act by striking out the side with his knuckle ball. Once Santaw arrived, the Dawgs responded in kind in the top of the 2nd, immediately erasing Ludlow's 4-1 lead by scoring four of their own. The rally was ignited by Santaw's (1-for2, RBI, 2 walks, 2 runs) RBI single. Ludlow, led by Justin Lewis (2for-4, double, 2 runs), threatened to

erupt over the next 3 innings, but outstanding defense by second basemen Matt Mucha kept the scoring to just one more run for the Athletics. Mucha’s diving play to end the 4th was huge, and Santaw retired the last 16 batters he faced. Mat Gilbert (2-for-5, run, 2 RBIs) and Brandon Oldham (2-for-3, double, 2 RBIs) led the Keene offense. Claremont 16, Chester 2 CHESTER – A battle between top ranked teams turned into a lopsided affair on Sunday as the Claremont Cardinals rapped out 18 hits en route to a 16-2 defeat of the Chester Crush. Josh Duford, Fred Girard and Paul Felix each contributed two hits for the Cardinals. Nate Duford and Andrew "Sully" Sullivan showed off their warning track power by knocking out two monster doubles each and together tallying four runs, four RBIs and five hits. The biggest of-
fensive output, however, came from “Big Daddy” John Grainger who celebrated his first Father’s Day as a new dad with a 3-for-3 performance that included two runs scored, a double and three RBIs. Scott Christian broke yet another bat to extend his league lead to seven on the season. A hat will be passed at the next home game. Chester starter Jamie Spence kept the game close through five innings, allowing only five runs and working out of a number of jams. Spence and Ricky Bernard scored Chester’s only runs and each had a hit in the game. Cardinal pitchers Bob Myers and Scott Christian combined to limit the Crush offensively to only three hits and two unearned runs. Chester is off next weekend while Claremont hosts Brattleboro at 11 a.m. on Sunday at Barnes Park. Newport 8, Putney 7 NEWPORT, NH - Mike Saindan's single up the middle in the bottom of the 9th inning drove in a run and gave the Newport Polar Bears a walk-off win over the Putney Fossils. Newport jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the second inning, but Putney fought back with single runs in the 3rd and 4th, then tied it at 6-6 with three in the top of the 5th. See "CRVBL" Cont. On Page 7A

Back Row (L to R): TJ Bernier, Coach Tim Eno, Jamie Moore, Joe Aslin, John Punger, front row: Britt Moyna and Enny Mustapha
Six Bellows Falls Union High School track athletes qualified for the New England Regional track event in Maine this June. Only the top six athletes in the state for each track event qualify for New Enlgands. From Bellows Falls, TJ Bernier, qualified in two hurdle events, 110 meter 300 hurdle coming home with a personal record in both events. John Punger participated in the 400-meter dash. Joe Aslin competed in the javelin; Enny Mustapha threw the shot put and Britt Moyna 100 meter hurdles and set a personal record. Jamie Moore also qualified in the one-mile run but had to scratch due to injury. Tim Eno coaches the team. class presentation, In short, the Walpoles of the world, although they put loads of time, money and energy into their programs, and the even bigger communities like the Claremonts, who did the same, but for not as many years, still fielded teams, but went to different organizations (Senior Babe Ruth in most cases) to put their athletes in at least a competitive situation. This movement picked up in the 1980's. Senior Babe Ruth has not proven to be as popular in Vermont and the main reason is most youngsters in the Green Mountain State still have a chance to play Legion ball. However, one thing is certain, the time is fast approaching in Vermont too, where fewer teams may be competing year after year. A couple of other items have contributed to the decline of total players, even in Vermont. First and probably foremost, there are so many more choices for youth, athletically, socially and electronically, that the number of youngsters willing to give up a summer to compete has dwindled.

Play one of Mother Nature’s
Once upon a time Legion baseball dominated the sports pages in both Vermont and New Hampshire in the summer months. There were area teams in Claremont, Bellows Falls, Springfield, Chester and Walpole. This summer, Bellows Falls is the only one of those communities fielding a Legion team. For the most part, times have changed, and for the most part, there was a tale of two states. New Hampshire was never small town friendly with their Legion baseball. They played all nineinning games and always allowed the bare minimum of teams to play in the post season. They were serious in making sure the right (most competitive) team went on to represent the Granite State in the New Englands.

Finding Your Way Back Home
SPRINGFIELD, VT -Springfield’s Richard “Dick” Gorton was honored by receiving the prestigious Vermont 2012 Governor’s Award for Outstanding Community Service on June 9. Each year, worthy volunteers from all over the state are recognized in Montpelier for all the service they give to their communities. Dick was nominated by Linda Husband of Green Mountain RSVP for his 25 years of dedicated service. Dick is most deserving of this award. Dick has been an RSVP volunteer for 25 years. During that time, he has shown unwavering commitment and dedication, giving thousands of hours of service. He does not want praise, but simply loves helping others. He worked tirelessly as a driver, server, and Advisory Board member for Meals on Wheels. For years, he designed and made wooden toys, painting them with bright colors, and then donated them to the Springfield Santa Claus Club so that unfortunate children would receive toys at Christmas. Dick handcrafted birdhouses, bird feeders and cutting boards for Habitat for Humanity fund raisers. Dick is also an active member at the Springfield Senior Center. There, he is Chairman of the Advisory Board, is known as “Mr. Fix-it”, as he is there if anything needs repair, and he is also known as “Sir Richard”, dressing up and helping as Master of Ceremonies for various shows at the center. In 2008, he was named “Senior of the Year” by his peers at the Senior Center. Thank you, Richard, for all you do!

South Acworth Village Store Pizza Night at the Orchard Hill Breadworks Bakery

Bring your own musical instruments for impromptu songs of farm and garden. Orchard Hill Breadworks Bakery is located at 121 Old Settlers Road, East Alstead, NH.

This N That
Secondly, the sport of baseball has lost some of its luster to high school age boys. Maybe reason number one is part of that reason, but many Green Mountain state high schools no longer field baseball teams. Thank Goodness all our area schools have survived to date. Bellows Falls and Windsor are both good examples of what has always been a trend for small town Legion programs in Vermont. You need to draw from more than one school in or-
der to compete consistently. In recent years, Bob Lockerby's BF team has included athletes from Leland + Gray, Springfield and Vermont Academy. Windsor now combines their forces with Woodstock just to field a team. More than one school is necessary to compete with the Brattleboros, Rutlands and Benningtons of the world. Bellows Falls was in place to receive a curve ball of one type or another this year. The original plan was that Post 37 would draw from Bellows
Falls school district athletes only. The Chester Legion team would be drawing the players from Springfield and Black River, as well as Green Mountain athletes. The players from Leland + Gray would move to Brattleboro. These communities (Chester and Brattleboro) always had had the rights to athletes from those schools, but they often had (for one reason or another) given them releases to play elsewhere. That was not expected to happen this year.
Unfortunately more than a couple of months back, Chester had decided to not field a team this year. The Chester Post had a difficult year (especially financially) due to several circumstances connected with Hurricane Irene. The Vermont Journal/The News Review/Shopper spoke to Chester coach Doug Roberts and the headman said, "I would be shocked if we do not regroup in a year, the time off is just to overcome the tough burden brought about by the storm."
Continued from page 6A
In speaking to Lockerby Monday, hours prior to opening his 2012 season at home versus Brattleboro, he was of course glad to have reinforcements for another season, but felt it was too early to know what it really meant. He has two ballplayers from Springfield, one from Leland + Gray (who had been grandfathered to Chester) one from Black River and one from Vermont Academy. "You never know how the chemistry of any certain group will bond, but hopefully it will work out
well like other such groups have done for us." The Falls is playing in the Vermont Southern Division and there are eight teams in the loop starting with the Falls and the already mentioned Windsor-Woodstock entry. The other six teams are Bennington, Rutland, Brattleboro, Lake Region (Fair Haven schools area), Hartford and South Royalton. The Falls is home again Thursday night versus Hartford and will be at Rutland Saturday.
Newport took the lead 7-6 in the bottom of the same inning and held it until the 8th. Putney catcher Steve "Stanley Steamer" Stanley tied the game with one swing of the bat, a deep blast far over the right field fence. Stanley was the offensive machine of the game going 4-for4 with a double, home run, stolen base, 3 runs, and 2 RBIs. Consecutive singles by Polar Bears
CRVBL
Eric Lemay and Adam Kimball, followed by a hit batsman with one out set the stage for Saindan's (2-for-3, walk, hit-by-pitch, RBI) dramatic game-ender. Sean Lantas and Kimball had two hits each for Newport and Bob Bates went the distance on the mound for the win. Putney's O'Brien brothers, Bruce and Sean, had two hits each for the Fossils.
Brattleboro 2, Saxtons River 1 Saxtons River 8, Walpole 5 SAXTONS RIVER - The Brattleboro River Rats won their second game in a row with a 2-1 triumph over the Saxtons River Pirates on Sunday. Brattleboro's Greg Elbaum earned the victory and Marty Vallender got the save. The Pirates' David Lockerby pitched very well, but took the tough loss.
Saxtons River led 1-0 early, but the game was decided on a bloop, 2-run single by Abe Klein with two outs in the fifth inning. The Pirates turned things around in their second game of the day with an 8-5 win over the Walpole Wild Blue. Joey Parrott got the win with a complete game effort. Despite some control problems that resulted in 10 walks, the right-hander pitched him-

self out of some jams and struck out 11. He also helped his own cause with 3 hits. Other Saxtons River offensive standouts were Josh Underwood, Alex Drost, and David Lockerby who had two hits each. Blake Gowen (double, 2 RBIs), Gary Dennis (double, RBI), and Adam Kobeski (RBI) had two hits apiece for Walpole. Ludlow and Saxtons River will
play a double-header this Saturday at Black River High School in Ludlow beginning at 2:30 p.m. On Sunday, Putney hosts Walpole at 10 a.m., Keene is in Newport for an 11 a.m. start at Bates Memorial Field and, as mentioned above, Brattleboro is at Claremont at 11 a.m. For more information visit www.crvbl.org.

SPRINGFIELD, VT -On Saturday, June 9, the Vt. Elks Association sponsored a first ever "Wounded Warrior's Project" event by hosting seven former Veteran's from Vermont, on a dinner cruise on Lake Champlain aboard the Ethan Allen III boat. One of the Warrior guests was Larry Green a member of Springfield Elks Lodge #1560. Mr. Green served in Vietnam for the U.S. Army and is a
resident of West Lebanon, N.H. The Vt. Elks Association plans to make this an annual event and their goal is to have at least two Veteran's from each Lodge's town in the state attend in future events like this. The true motto of the Elks is, "Elks Care, Elks Share" and this Wounded Warrior Cruise sure showed that to these wounded Veteran's.

Ascutney & Windsor to Benefit from Free Computer and Internet Trainings
WEATHERSFIELD, VT -The Weathersfield Proctor Library of Ascutney and the Windsor Public Library are pleased to announce a new computer skills training program. The libraries will each host one-on-one computer coaching sessions through a collaboration with Vermont Telephone Company (VTel). VTel is a small family-owned telephone company, serving 14 rural Vermont villages, based in Springfield, VT and in 2010 received funding to expand broadband access throughout Vermont. “Our digital literacy initiative is just one piece of VTel’s comprehensive plan to bridge the digital divide in Vermont,” according to Tess Gauthier, VTel’s Community Broadband Team Director. “VTel’s rural broadband adoption model includes the expansion of our broadband network to Vermont’s underserved areas and a commitment to build digital skills within communities.” “We are excited to host computer coaching sessions sponsored by VTEL. More and more people are finding that they need computer skills in order to compete in the job market and many times to search for a job and submit employment applications.” said Nancy Tusinski, Director of the Weathersfield Proctor Library. All of the one-on-one trainings are free and open to the public. No prior computer experience is necessary and each site has computers available for people to use. All sessions are onehour long and tailored to the individual's needs. “We meet with people who want to learn how to take advantage of all the Internet has to offer,” says VTel Community Broadband Organizer Dan Lucier. “Many folks have not had the chance to develop computer skills and others want to enhance the skills they currently have. We aim to give them this opportunity.” Trainings are available in Windsor on Mondays and in Ascutney on Thursdays. To sign up for a training, please call 802-885-9222 or go to www.vermontel.com/tech to see the summer schedule.

Hound of the Baskervilles

WESTON, VT. – Nothing says big summer fun like an inspired theatrical romp. And The Hound of the Baskervilles, opening Weston's 2012 season on June 26, offers mystery, surprises and laughs all rolled up in one delicious package. Performances run through July 7. Based on the classic mystery by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in an adaptation by Steven Canny and John Nicholson, this ingenious show features three actors who play many different characters, taking the audience on a total thrill ride. No wonder it took the London stage by storm. The production is directed by Mark Shanahan (of the original Broadway cast of “The 39 Steps,” a similarly inspired show that wowed Weston audiences two summers ago) and is a co-production with the venerable Cape Playhouse of Dennis, MA. The three-member cast is comprised of Jonathan Brody, Dan Domingues, and Greg Jackson, veterans of such Broadway classics as Spamalot, 39 Steps, and Urinetown. The creative team also features Scenic Designer Hugh Landwehr, Lighting Designer Chris Chambers, Costume Designer Pat Doherty, Sound Designer Sean Hagerty and Production Stage Manager Melissa Spengler. Tickets for The Hound of the Baskervilles start at $25. For additional information and to reserve seats, call the Playhouse box office at 802-824-5288 or visit the theatre’s website at westonplayhouse.org. Dinner is available by reservation at the theatre’s Cafe at the Falls restaurant. After the show head down to The Cabaret, Weston's late night hot spot, featuring the work of Ryan Scott Oliver, one of the country’s most exciting musical theatre composers. Cabaret performances follow all evening MainStage performances of the Hound of the Baskervilles except June 26. Seating is limited and reservations are highly recommended. WPTC’s 2012 season continues with the MainStage production of Ella, the little-known story of musical legend Ella Fitzgerald. For more information about upcoming shows, visit westonplayhouse.org.
Arieb is currently finishing his next album, which, besides the well-known humanist poets of the sub-continent, will also incorporate contemporary poets such as Sheikh Ayaz, Arshed Bhatti and Akhtar Qayum. According to him, "True music is the union between the individual and the universal; a release, rapture, celebration, quest, lament of the human spirit. If I am able to touch that in moments of my life, I consider myself fortunate!" Help us welcome Arieb Azhar with his Acoustic Ensemble from Islamabad, Pakistan on Friday, June 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Immanuel Church, 20 Church St, Bellows Falls. Admission is $17.00 for adults ($13.00 for seniors and children under 12) in advance and $20 ($15) at the door. Tickets are available at Village Square Booksellers (Bellows Falls), Toadphoto provided stool Bookshop (Keene, NH), Brattleboro Books, Misty Valley Books (Chester), and at www.brattleborotix.com or available at the door.

“Grand Re-Opening” at the Weston Playhouse
WESTON, VT -On Saturday, June 23, the Inn at Weston will host a fundraising cocktail reception in the Weston Playhouse to aid the Weston Community Association in meeting the costs of reconstruction following the devastation caused by tropical storm Irene. Every room on the lower level suffered major damage, almost all interior walls had to be replaced, as did all flooring, and major mechanical components were destroyed. The reception will be the first public event to take place in the Café at the Falls and the Cabaret since the major repairs and enhancements have been completed and it will be the public’s first opportunity to inspect these spaces that are “lighter, brighter and better than ever”. Besides beverages, The Inn at Weston will supply passed hors d’oeuvres as well as a pasta station and a carving station. There will also be a raffle, with a ticket included with each person’s admission. Prizes include dinners for two at some of the area’s finest restaurants: SoLo, The Silver Fork and The Downtown Grocery as well as an oil painting of the Playhouse in Winter, contributed by local artist Patricia Dow Beveridge. The date is June 23. The time is 5:30 p.m. The cost of admission is $75, of which $40 is tax deductible. Please reserve your place by calling 802824-6789 (the Inn at Weston). Join your friends and neighbors for a celebration with fine fare, a chance to win a valuable prize and to raise a toast to the resurrection of the Weston Playhouse on the occasion of its “Grand Re-Opening”.

Spencer Lewis opens 2012 Jamaica Tavern Restaurant in Walpole Town Hall Summer Music Series Gears Up For the Summer Season
JAMAICA, VT -To allow everyone to focus on Irene recovery, the Spencer Lewis September 2011 concert was cancelled. He will now be the opening performer for the 2012 season; his concert at Jamaica Town Hall will be on Saturday, June 23 at 7 p.m.. Admission is $10. Spencer possesses a signature sound that combines his inimitable cross-flat picking acoustic guitar style with the sustained elegance of the violin. Often played together in live performance, Lewis employs the latest looping technology to overdub his solo guitar parts with both the violin and the guitar as he successfully recreates the music from his 22 CD catalog. As an original folksinger-songwriter he alternates between the confessional and spiritual while also drawing from a vast repertoire of old-time, folk-rock, and the obscure and unheralded singer-songwriters from the '60's and '70's. For more information about the June 23 show, call 802-896-6810. Information for the other fine shows in Jamaica Town Hall's 2012 Summer Music Series is listed below. Each show begins at 7 p.m. and admission is $10. Saturday, July 21: HUNGRYTOWN: Husband-and-wife folk duo Hungrytown perform original ballads that sound as if they have been passed down from generation to generation. www.hungrytown.net Saturday, August 18: JOHN AND IDA MAE SPECKER: An old-time family duo comprised of legendary fiddler John Specker and his daughter Ida Mae. The Speckers play traditional American music as it's never been played before. www.thespeckers.com Saturday, September 15: SCOTT AINSLIE: Combining over thirty years of scholarship and forty playing guitar, Scott presents a beguiling mix of the African and American roots of the Blues, in story and song. www.cattailmusic.com BY JOEL SLUTSKY The Vermont Journal/ The Shopper

WALPOLE, NH -According to Tom Bentley, he loves to walk into the Tavern and see lots of people having a good time, relaxing after a long day. Tom, copartner of the Tavern Restaurant with his wife Sue, has been running the Tavern for eight years. Tom may well be talking about the “bar scene” at the Tavern which makes Cheers seem like a hostile environment in compariGeneral Store son. At the Tavern, not only does everyone know your name, but they also know your address, occupation and number of grandchildren. That might be an exaggeration, but not by much. On regular occasions you can see locals such as long time Walpole native John Neal and Coast Guard Veteran Max Imhoff who stated, “The Tavern is the social center of Walpole.” David Ashton, another Walpole resident is 86 years old and was born in London. David fought with the Royal Air Force in WWII and has remarked, “The Tavern is like an English pub.” And, “Oh yeah, I’ve been known to drop in from time to time to catch up on local happenings.” Sue Bentley says, “The repeat, loyal customers are the backbone of the restaurant.” Tom’s specialty is beer, that is, making sure the restaurant is stocked with six tap beers including stouts, IPA’s and any seasonal beers that are ready to go. The Tavern also has over 40 bottled beers and a full bar. The Tavern building has a long and varied history. According to the Walpole Historical Society, The general store at this site was built about 1842. Over the years it has been a boot store, manufacturer, meat market, furniture store and a jewelry store. For many years the Tavern building was Roy Peck’s drugstore. By the 60’s it became the village store where owner Randall Daniels operated a lunch counter, sold groceries and general merchandise. In 1987 it was purchased by Les Hubbard for renovation which brings us pretty much up to date as it became the Tavern over time.

On a typically busy Friday evening Mike and Rene Southwell from Walpole were dining at the Tavern. They both agree that the Tavern is a social gathering place which makes it an enjoyable dining experience. Heidi Porter, also of Walpole and a bartender at the Tavern for five years, stated, “I love my local customers and the atmosphere at the Tavern.” Sarah Downing, another Walpolean, commented on “the friendly staff who remember your favorite beverage and menu items.” Downing added, “I love the PEI mussels when they are an appetizer special.” The Tavern uses local meats with veggies supplied by Pete’s Farm Stand. John Vigneau, Chef, is creative when making meals. John says he “loves to please the customer.” The Tavern has daily specials that may include prime rib on most Fridays to mussels, fried clams and pulled pork. Wednesday is all you can eat haddock, Thursday is Mexican night. The menu runs from a basic burger to a 12 oz. New York Strip Steak with caramelized onions. There are also many seafood entrées. Every entrée includes a trip to the salad bar. The Tavern also offers a kid’s menu for five dollars. The Tavern is open seven days a week: Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for lunch. The Tavern is located at 10 Westminster Street in Walpole.

The Flower Show – Art in Bloom
vases created by Chris Sherwin and Lada Bohac. One display by artist Alicia Drakiotes captured the deep velvety purple passion of a clematis with the live flower blossoming beside her painting. The real flowers bent close to Drakiotes’s painting lending a depth of color to the otherwise still life. Other artists displayed many different flowers and the members of the Springfield Garden Club were able to find blooms to match the paintings. Among the art on display were several photographs that were breath taking and dishes, drinking glasses and jewelry that were exquisite in detail and design. All flowers were set in beautiful vases that were pieces of art in themselves. The flower displays were coordinated with the vases making the Fourth Annual Flower Show one of the best attractions in the area. This art work will be on display through August 27, 2012 at the “Gallery at the VAULT” at 68 Main St., Springfield, VT. Marilyn Miller and Dan O’Donnell co directors of the vault with Sue McCausland of the Garden Club organized the event.
Parcel of Rogues at Hooker-Dunham
BRATTLEBORO, VT - Twilight Music presents an evening of Scottish music from New England, New York and Norway by Parcel of Rogues at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Saturday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m. Dan Houghton (bagpipes), Susie Petrov (keyboards), Calum Pasqua (fiddle) and James Gray (piano, accordion) cover the broad diversity of Scottish music from the achingly emotional slow airs to the exhilarating, toe-tapping reels and jigs. Parcel of Rogues is four old friends who met doing Scottish Country dancing, and who now come together to share their love of Scottish music. Dan Houghton is a virtuoso bagpiper and singer/guitarist who has played and taught pipes extensively throughout New England, Britain and Europe, and has toured as a soloist as well as in various ensembles including the Scottish fusion band Salsa Celtica, Edinburgh-based trio Cantrip and the New Zealand Irish band Blackthorn. He will regale the audience with a good yarn and flying fingers on bagpipes great and small. Calum Pasqua hales from Brooklyn and has the distinction of being the first American to win the Glenfiddich Invitational Fiddle Championship at Blair Castle in Scotland. James Gray has lived ten hours drive north of the Arctic Circle in Norway for the past five years. In addition to performing traditional Norwegian music, he plays piano for Scottish Country dancing events across Europe. Boston-based Susie Petrov has been performing Scottish music across the USA, Canada and Europe since the other members of the band were in grade school. The quartet gives workshops, and will perform this summer at music camps at St Andrews, Scotland, the Pipers

It's hard to believe it, but it has been more than one year since The Cold River Ranters played at Mole Hill Theater. For those of you who remember, that last gig at the Hill was a fundraiser for new theater doors with our good friends Pat's Famous Chili.

I sure don't know, but we hope we can rectify it with a big homecoming shindig on June 23 at our favorite machine shop in all of New England. If there is still anyone out there who hasn't been to Mole Hill, it's time to break the ice. Heck, if you even know someone who hasn't been to Mole Hill, do them a favor and turn them on to the place.

TUNBRIDGE, VT -Are you looking for a “Quintessential Vermont Experience” with Bluegrass mixed in? Tunbridge Vermont is absolutely stunning and is tucked in the beautiful Green Mountains. This is the home of the 12th Annual Jenny Brook Family Bluegrass Festival. The entire center of Tunbridge Village, including the fairgrounds where the festival takes place, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. The Jenny Brook Family Bluegrass Festival has also put Tunbridge on the map as the “go to” festival since it moved here in 2009. The gates open this year on Wednesday June 20 for the early bird campers. Organizer Candi Sawyer likes to have something for the early bird fans to do so there is a Pot Luck Dinner with music to follow. This year, Leroy Troy and the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band will be the featured music. It’s sure to be a great time. The festival features four days of great music from start to finish with a big headliner each day! On Thursday the great event continues with Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, who has been crowned as the Queen of Bluegrass, as the headliner for the day. Friday is another very exciting day because J.D. Crowe and the New South will be appearing for their first time at Jenny Brook. It will also be his only performance scheduled in New England on his farewell tour. Jenny Brook wouldn’t be Jenny Brook without having the Gibson Brothers perform on Saturday. This year their sister Erin will also have her own set which is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Sunday’s headliner for the day will be Nothin’ Fancy and this will be their first appearance on the Jenny Brook stage. Other great performers to appear throughout the weekend are Audie Blaylock and Redline, David Parmley & Continental Divide, Junior Sisk & Rambler’s Choice, Beartracks, Acoustic Blue, Michelle Canning & Rough Edges, Mike & Mary’s Bluegrass Gospel Sing and your hosts: the Seth Sawyer Band. There is plenty of room for rough camping, water & electric hook-ups for an additional fee, free hot showers, and public restrooms. Weekend and day passes are available at the gate. We also have: Master Workshops~Open Mic at our Grass Seeds Gazebo Stage~Concessions~Jenny Brook Movie Theater for Kids~Kids Activities~Late Night Music at the Sugar House~24 Hour Field Picking~Some of the Nicest Fans Around! Come join us and Experience Bluegrass, Green Mountain Style!
