The town has announced an ARPA public input meeting on June 8th at 6:30pm. at the 1879 Schoolhouse in Perkinsville.

The purpose of this meeting is to hear everyone's ideas about how to best utilize the Town's remaining American Rescue Plan Act funding. 

They will do a round table discussion and everyone that joins will have opportunity to share their ideas on the expenditure of these funds. 

On June 19th they will be distributing a report to the Selectboard that contains all of the ideas they've heard, and recommendations on how to allocate the remaining funds. 

They are interested in combining other grant opportunities with the town's ARPA funds to maximize the town's dollars. 

So if you have an idea to share, the town will do some research to see if there's any other grant opportunities that they can apply for.
If you have any questions please contact:

Andy Warhol in Vermont
Hall Art Foundation, Reading VT

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by famed American artist Andy Warhol to be held in its galleries in Reading, Vermont from 13 May – 26 November 2023. 

Cultural icon, celebrity and provocateur, Andy Warhol produced works that are instantly recognizable and have inspired a generation of artists. Seriality and appropriation were signature aspects of Warhol’s painting and sculptural practice. 

He often made many different versions of the same subject, perhaps most famously with his iconic multi-part work, Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962) which depicts 32 different versions of a Campbell’s soup can. Shortly after completing these works, Warhol began to make paintings using silk-screens, a process that greatly facilitated his explorations of image multiplicity. 

For any given subject, Warhol might use several different source images, producing multiple versions of each picture, sometimes in different sized formats, or sometimes using different color combinations for the silkscreen inks and paints, or sometimes both. 

In other cases, he would use the same exact silkscreen and the same color silkscreen inks and paints, allowing the randomness of the screening process itself to introduce variations in tonality and color saturation in the individual paintings.

Book Fair at WS May 30 & 31

The Scholastic Book Fair will also be open for families during the art showcase event on
Wednesday, May 31st from 5-6 pm.
Please help support the library - Scholastic points are given based on the total dollar value of the books sold during the fair which will help provide new books for the students to borrow.

The ewallet option of payment has been a big hit and is available for this fair. Signing up will enable your child to be able to shop without bringing money to school. (Balances on ewallet can not be refunded. However, they do carry over to the next fair or students may use the money to purchase books online.) If you are interested please go to and sign up.

Local and State News

The Vermont Creemee Database: Vote for your favorite

Erin Petenko reporting for VT Digger

Nothing goes better with a hot Vermont summer day than a cold, sweet, creamy cone of soft serve ice cream.

Wait, soft serve? What are you talking about? There’s only one type of ice cream that reigns supreme in the Green Mountain State: the creemee.

A creemee is not quite synonymous with soft serve, but they share some similarities. Both take prepared ice cream “bases” that vendors can mix flavor into and serve from the same machine, according to E.B. Flory, dairy chief of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets.

Creemees, however, are supposed to contain a higher percentage of butterfat — a minimum of 14%, versus 10%-14% for soft serve, Flory said. Creemees are often sold in maple, black raspberry, vanilla and chocolate flavors, or as a twist of two flavors. They can come with toppings or be dipped into chocolate or other sauces to create a hard outer coating.

How many creemee stands are there in Vermont? Until recently, this seemed an unanswerable question. But then Secretary of Agriculture Anson Tebbetts revealed on Twitter that his agency maintains a licensing system that tracks this sort of thing.

So VTDigger did what VTDigger does: We filed a public records request.

The data we obtained shows that roughly 400 Vermont establishments have active licenses to operate “frozen dessert” machines. That count, however, includes vendors who sling creemees, as well as those who dish out soft serve.

About a quarter of the licensees were chains such as McDonald’s, Cumberland Farms and Walmart. There were also some oddball spots, such as universities, movie theaters and hospital cafeterias.

Know How to Prevent Tick Bites
Wherever your outdoor adventures lead, remember ticks could be nearby. Ticks thrive in wooded and brushy areas with high grass – places like the edges of backyards, farms, trails, and sports fields. Whether you're deep in the woods or working in the garden, help protect yourself and your family from ticks and the diseases they carry:

- Use an EPA-registered tick repellent and treat outdoor clothing with permethrin.
- Wear pants, long sleeves, and high socks. Light-colored clothing can help you spot ticks more easily.
- Walk in the center of trails.
- Talk to your vet about tick prevention options for pets.
- After being outdoors, check your body, clothing, gear, and pets. Take a shower to wash off any ticks that may be crawling and to help find ticks that have attached more easily.

If you find a tick attached to your body, remove it as soon as you can. Contact your health care provider if you develop symptoms, like a fever, headache, joint pain, muscle aches, fatigue, or rash, which can start three to 30 days after a tick bite.

Gov. Phil Scott signs law nixing many driver’s license suspensions

Shaun Robinson reporting for VT Digger

Starting next month, Vermonters won’t lose their driver’s licenses solely because they have not paid the fines for a moving violation.

Gov. Phil Scott on Thursday signed legislation eliminating the state’s ability to suspend a person’s driving privileges for failing to pay speeding tickets or other infractions.

The law, H.53, applies only to civil violations — the state can still suspend licenses or driver’s privilege cards for criminal infractions such as operating under the influence. It will not restore driver’s licenses that have already been suspended.

“The whole goal was to have license suspensions only be put forward for folks who have serious driving behaviors, and not have it be related to somebody's ability to pay a fine,” said Rep. Karen Dolan, D-Essex Junction, who sponsored the legislation.

Under existing law, Vermonters have 30 days to pay off the costs associated with a moving violation before the Department of Motor Vehicles can suspend their license. The state charges $80 to get it reinstated, though that fee might be reduced or waived at a judicial hearing.

But many people cannot afford to pay the fines from a traffic violation, and when their license gets suspended, they just keep driving away, according to Marshall Pahl, the state’s deputy defender general. In most cases, Pahl said, those people are not trying to skirt the law for the sake of it — they just need to be able to get to and from work.

His office has repeatedly seen a damaging cycle play out in which people accumulate multiple charges of driving with a suspended license, which can become a criminal offense.

Just shy of 4,000 Vermonters had their license suspended last year for failure to pay moving violation fines, according to data from the Legislature’s Joint Fiscal Office, representing about 45% of all license suspensions in the state.

Because fewer people will be paying the license reinstatement fee as a result of H.53, the fiscal office estimated the state will miss out on some $200,000 in annual revenue to its transportation fund. That fund receives about $300 million total a year.

Celebrating Hummingbirds

It’s easy to make hummingbird food with just table sugar and water. We’ll tell you all you need to know:

Use table sugar rather than honey to make hummingbird food—when honey is diluted with water, bacteria and fungus thrive in it. 

The normal mixture, especially ideal during hot or dry weather, is ¼ cup of sugar per cup of water. 

During cold, rainy, or foggy conditions when fresh water is plentiful but birds need more energy, it’s fine to make the mixture ⅓ cup of sugar per cup of water. 

Concentrations of sugars in natural nectars vary within about that range.

If you mix up small quantities of sugar water every day or two, there’s no need to boil the water. But if you mix up larger batches and refrigerate part for later use, then it’s wise to make the mixture with boiling water.

Note: There’s no need to add red food color to sugar water, or to use red-colored commercial mixes. 

Nectar in flowers is clear, after all, and red food coloring may be harmful for hummingbirds. 

It’s the flowers themselves that are brightly colored, not the nectar—and that’s why hummingbird feeders typically are designed with red parts to attract the notice of hummingbirds.

Incarcerated man alleges Springfield prison superintendent ignored report of sexual abuse by officer

Ethan Weinstein reporting for VT Digger

A person who was incarcerated at Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield has sued superintendent Mike Lyon, claiming Lyon ignored his attempt to report a corrections officer’s sexual abuse against him.

In an interview and in court documents, Michael Lewis, 42, said he brought his allegations to a peer counselor in the months before Lyon was placed on administrative leave amid an investigation into unspecified misconduct allegations on April 13.

The Vermont Department of Corrections announced last week that the investigation had cleared Lyon of wrongdoing. He was returned to his post.

It’s not clear whether Lewis’s allegations are linked to Lyon’s paid leave. Corrections officials declined to comment, and Lyon did not respond to an email.

Lewis, who is now lodged at the Northern State Correctional Facility in Newport, filed his lawsuit against Lyon and two other Southern State employees in Windsor County civil court on May 5, alleging denial of due process, cruel and unusual punishment, deliberate indifference and retaliation related to the alleged sex abuse and response. He is seeking a total of almost $2 million in damages from the three defendants and asking a judge to allow him to represent himself.

The Department of Corrections is not named in the suit. The defendants have yet to file a response in court.

In the 25-page handwritten court filing and in video interviews from prison, Lewis said he had a good relationship with Lyon. The two have known each other since about 1998, when Lewis was lodged at the prison in Newport and Lyon worked there, he said.

But Lewis wrote that when he tried to tell Lyon about a female corrections officer sexually touching, kissing and propositioning him, the superintendent tried to remove himself from the situation in order to protect himself.

In an interview, Lewis asserted that Lyon told him, “You can't report this with me.” When other prison officials later learned about the allegations, Lewis claimed in his lawsuit, Lyon “cornered” Lewis and suggested the episode could hurt his reputation.

Lake monitors needed in Windsor County
Do you enjoy being on the water? If you own a small paddle-powered or motor-powered boat and can commit to getting out on your lake or pond once every 10 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day, then being a lake monitor could be for you,

Volunteers from the Black River Action Team will be tackling lakes and ponds around Windsor County, but there are several still in need of a person to take on the role of lake monitor. All training and equipment are provided. All that’s required is your enthusiasm for healthy water and an hour or so every 10 days. Water temperature and clarity data as well as visual observations will be collected during each visit, and samples will be collected and need to be delivered to a prearranged drop site in a timely manner.

The water bodies in need are Knapp Brook Pond Number One and Knapp Brook Pond Number Two in Cavendish/Ascutney, Stoughton Pond in Weathersfield, and Amherst Lake in Plymouth.

To learn more or to volunteer, please contact B.R.A.T. Director Kelly Stettner right away at, or by leaving your contact information at 802-738-0456.
All shows are at 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise stated.
