Weathersfield News May 23, 2016
Nancy Nutile-McMenemy

As Memorial Day approaches I hope we all remember why we have a day off. While most people get ready for the first weekend of summer with BBQs,  garden planting,  and a freedom from work day, some folks gather to remember all the service people who fought bravely for our country during many wars. During your long weekend, stop for a few minutes and reflect on the real reason why we have this day set aside and what the real price of freedom is.



Last Wednesday, I was in the audience of "Good News From Around The World" a play written and performed by the folks at Zack's Place in Woodstock.

 Saw a great Boston Red Sox game on Sunday May 22. They beat the Cleveland Indians after what could be one of the best games I've ever witnessed. Big Papi, David Ortiz almost hit for the cycle with a single, two ground rule doubles and a home run.

Weathersfield Select Board News: At their May 16 meeting Chair Daniel Boyer announced that the US flag on display in the front of the Town Office was donated to the Town by Congressman Peter Welch. The flag had been flown at the Capital in Washington for a day before coming to Weathersfield. Ascutney Volunteer Fire Department Chief Darrin Spaulding thanked everyone that helped out during the Yankee Village Motel Fire last month. Spaulding said that the fire reinforced the need for water in the village. The City of Claremont provided 100,000 gallons of (treated drinking) water during the fire. The Tenney Hill, Bow, and Heiser’s hydrants are all out of service and the departments had to get water from Wheeler Camp Road when Claremont could no longer provide it. He added that both the fuel and food budgets will be over-budget due to the fire.

Weathersfield School News-The school welcomed Jennifer Rousse and wished good luck to Erica Yuengling.  Rousse has accepted a paraprofessional position at WS to begin in the fall. Regular Education Paraprofessional, Yuengling, will be completing her teaching degree in FY 17 and will be on a one year leave of absence. Placement Letters Class lists for FY 17 went home with the children on Friday May 20. WS said good-bye to Kelly Harriman, who has been their AD for several years. The school also welcomed Stephen Lanoza who has accepted the Lead Cook position at WS for the FY 17 school year. After many years of dedicated service, Judy Sargent, Assistant to the Cook, has announced her retirement. Her last day of work is Jun. 14. Hannaford Helps Schools Program-WS belongs to the Hannaford Helps Program, when families shop, certain items count towards this program, the school that raises the most money each year gets a $1,000 check from Hannaford’s. Two Hannaford representatives came to school and awarded that check to WS school. For more information about WS, please contact Principal Oakman  jmoakman@wsesu.net or call at 674-5400.

Weathersfield Parks and Recreations-Announced its Guided Hikes. Contact Steve Aikenhead with questions stevea47@tds.net , 263-5439. Saturday, Jun. 18, 9:30 a.m.-The Ancient Hemlocks. This route is over fields and through the woods, up and down a logging road and over a rivulet or brook. The last half mile is up Little Canada Road, past the 1791 John Warner house. Dave Noake will welcome us there with a brief tour of the house. The trees are about 500 years old. Your guide will use a compass to find his way through one section – he’s confident. Total distance 2 miles. Sunday, Jul. 17, 11:30 a.m.-The Cabin. Following Swift’s Logging Road up to the crest of Pikes Peak ridge, then a trail through the woods to Grace’s skiing trail, and then by woodsy trail on to Steve’s cabin. There is a nice view there. We will linger – some food will be available. The distance to the cabin will feel like 2 miles, plus a short walk on the Center Road. There might be No Trespassing signs at the beginning of this hike, but we natives are sure they can’t mean us. We use the route many times.  If anyone is interested, the return from the cabin could go past Murderer’s Well, which was large enough for two bodies, but was used for only one. Its cellar hole is clearly visible. Add a mile. Let Steve know if you want to include the cellar hole route. Sunday, Aug. 14, 1:00 p.m.-Springweather, Stoughton Pond. This hike is to the pond and around it for those who wish. The route to the pond is mostly level – a couple of hills – and is just over 2 ½ miles. We will leave cars there to get back to Springweather.  Those who want to continue will go another 2 ½  miles around the pond, in part on the Crown Point Road, passing a 1760 marker stone and crossing Branch Brook. We stay on the Crown Point Road to return to cars. The loop is hilly, but not necessarily strenuous, depending on your opinion. Boots will come off for the crossing – a towel might be welcome. Hikers could skip the pond and brook, go out and back from Springweather, and therefore go 5 miles, or go out and back from Springweather including pond and brook: 7 ½ miles. Saturday, Aug. 20, 9:30 a.m.-Little Ascutney-Walking up to the ledges for provides a very nice view. In large part this terrain is strenuous. The hike includes a steady climb, then a dip, and then a steep ascent to get to the viewpoints. The parking lot is at 900 feet, and the summit of Little Ascutney is at 1709 feet. The hike probably will take over two hours. Saturday, Sept. 17, 9:30 a.m.-The Crash Site and Tucker Trail Lookout. From Gil Whittemore’s in Perkinsville we head up to the site of the 1947 crash of an army B-29 bomber. The difficulty is strenuous. The climb is steady, but the footing is good. On the way back we will go out and back to a viewpoint overlooking Perkinsville and the Black River Valley. The total distance is less than 3 miles.  This event is limited to 15 people. Gil will give participants a copy of Barbara Woodbury’s booklet containing accounts and photos of the tragedy. (Let me know if you already have one.) Dogs are not permitted. Saturday, Sept. 24, 9:30 a.m.-Perkinsville Lower Valley. The hike starts at the Grange and takes in the Lower Falls and the original site of Grout Cemetery. We will offer some historical commentary en route. There are river views and meadow views. The terrain is partly flat and partly of gentle slope. Distance will be optional, from 1.3 miles to 2.5 to 4.0. We’ll see what people want. The Historical Society hopes to do a similar hike with more detailed commentary. Our date might change so that we can join them. Saturday, Oct. 15, 9:30 a.m.-Cooks Pond Loop. This is a route on dirt road more than on trail. It is wooded, lovely in autumn colors. There are three beaver ponds along the trail and a framed view of Mt. Ascutney from the south end of Cooks Pond. Other mountain views occur at later points. Julia Lloyd Wright will be the hike leader. Difficulty: easy to moderate, with one longish incline. Distance: almost 3 miles. Saturday, Oct. 22, 5 p.m.-Ferry Road and the Connecticut River. This generally level route heads down shaded Ferry Road and into Skyline Nursery. Soon it follows the river, sometimes with views. The total length is about 2 miles. Carol Orth is the leader.

Weathersfield News May 18, 2016
Nancy Nutile-McMenemy

Get out your calendars, there's a lot happening in Town over the next few weeks. You won't want to miss the Grand Opening of the ADA Accessible bathroom at the Weathersfield Proctor Library on Thursday May 26 at 5 p.m.. Rumors have it that there'll be some special cupcakes at the refreshment table.


Another week filled with music and events. Wednesday, May 11, I had tickets to see Cage The Elephant at the Times Union Arena in Albany but the show got moved to the Palace Theatre. My great seats were turned into General Admission Balcony-REFUND PLEASE. Heard it was a great show, oh well, hopefully I'll catch them sometime. 

Instead, I went to Concord NH to see an old friend perform a FREE show at the Concord City Auditorium. I've known Scott Kirby for years and really love his music. It's a laid back, small town, chill type of sound.


Thursday, I covered the Lebanon Opera House's Thank You Donor Dinner. I love shooting events because I get to meet some very nice people. The special guest that evening was Matthew Dicks.


Dick's has written a number of books and tells the best stories "on the page and on the stage."

Friday night, we drove across the river to Claremont NH to check out a singer/songwriter that a friend had recommended. Joe Young is from Portsmouth NH and has played at New Socials a few times before (but we had never heard of him.) He sounds like Ryan Adams, Joe Purdy, Ray LaMontagne, and Sean Hayes. During his breaks we got to talk to him socially-really nice guy and very into the Red Sox! We bought his two CDs and really like his sound.

Saturday I attended the Woodstock Union High School's Junior Prom. The King and Queen were crowned after the traditional Junior Class Promenade. The students were dressed to the nines!

Conor Kennedy Announces Bid for Windsor County Senate Seat #HartlandVT #VTpoli #VT

Monday May 16, 2016
Damon Hall
Hartland VT

Before a crowd of about thirty, mostly family and friends, Conor Kennedy announced that he's running for the Windsor County Senate seat that his boss is retiring from. Vermont Senate Pro Tempore, John Campbell announced his retirement from the Senate after serving Windsor County for 16 years.

Campbell introduced his Deputy Chief of staff, Kennedy Monday night, praising Kennedy by saying "The people of Vermont are so much better off by having someone like Conor as their representative in Montpelier and this is just the beginning folks."


Kennedy spoke about 15 minutes laying out why he wants to continue his public service career. "In order to make our county (Windsor) a better place for people to raise their families, grow their businesses, and enjoy Vermont's great quality of life, it will take hard work and the entire community to make these changes possible...we have to do this together."

Kennedy grew up on a farm in Hartland developing a strong work ethic. At age 14 applied to be a Vermont State Capital page in Montpelier. He attended Hartford High School and in his senior year he transferred to Woodstock High School in order to attend Okemo Mountain School where he received a scholarship to pursue his love of skiing. He has work these last three years for Senator Campbell while attending the University of Vermont


Kennedy praised Windsor County for it's great recreation and diverse educational opportunities. "Windsor county has so many things to celebrate. We have ski resorts like Okemo, Suicide Ski, Quechee, and hopefully Ascutney if they continue their great work. We have great down towns in Springfield, Woodstock and White River Junction. Educational opportunities at Community College of Vermont, Vermont Law School, and our technical centers around the area. We have thriving businesses like King Arthur Flour, Black River Produce, GW Plastics, Simon Pearce,  just to name a few. We have cultural opportunities, Marsh Billings national Park in Woodstock, Northern Stage, Pierce Hall Community Center in Rochester, and the Weston Playhouse. And of course Windsor County is the birthplace of the craft beer movement. Catamount Brewery set the stage in the late 80s and today we have great breweries like Back Acre Beer Makers, Trout River Brewing,  Harpoon Brewery, Long Trail, River Roost brewery and Norwich Inn,  carrying on this great tradition."



Kennedy spoke about rising costs and their effects on the young and old alike. "The cost of housing, child care, and health care continue to be a burdensome and detriment to young people in the middle class. I've watched as retirees and people my age choose to leave the state in pursuit of a place that is more affordable."


"Many times I've spoken with friends about their desire to stay in Vermont, start a career and raise a family but they are unable to do so because it's simple too expensive. This is a problem that cannot be ignored in order for Vermont and Windsor County to thrive"

Kennedy believes that it's time to talk about the increased cost of educating our children. "We need to have the conversation about our Windsor County Schools. The cost of education continues to rise, we must work together to lower costs while making sure Vermont and Windsor County children continue to a quality education for a successful future."



Kennedy told the crowd the over the next few days his campaign will be launching a multi-media platform (website, social media and paper mail) and scheduling community get-togethers. "I want to dedicate my time and my energy to working for Windsor County but I can't do this alone, we have to do this together."

Woodstock Union High School Crowns a New King and Queen #WoodstockVT #VT #WUHS


Saturday May 14, 2016
Quechee Club
Quechee VT

On Saturday evening, the Quechee Club was transformed into a Casino for the Woodstock Union High School's Junior Prom.

Junior Class President Alden Krawcyzk and his friends spent a good part of the day decorating the event room.



The students started arriving around 8 p.m.. Virginia Dean and Gareth De Bourguignon, Junior Class Advisors checked the list to OK the prom attendees.



The prom goers had about two hours to socialize, play a few hands of cards, get their photos taken and pose in the Fun Photo Booth before lining up for the Red Carpet Promenade.
Parents arrived with cameras in hand as the Promenade began. The students were dressed to the nines!



The King and Queen were crowned.
