Celebration of Life for Drew Kaufman: For the last 15 years, Drew Kauffman lived fully with brain cancer. Unfortunately, his life was cut short at 44 years of age, leaving behind his wife Courtney Hillhouse and his two young sons, Sawyer and Finley. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2 pm at Dejours in Ludlow. To support the Kaufmanns during this challenging time, and to offset medical bills, a Go Fund Me site has been set up as well as a donation jar at the Cavendish Library. Checks can also be sent to  Courtney Hillhouse, 44 Laplante Rd., Cavendish VT 05142.

Lindberg Resigns from CFD Prudential Board: At the monthly meeting of the Cavendish Fire Department, Prudential Board member Stuart Lindbergh submitted his resignation. Daniel Tyrrell will take his place on the Prudential Board. CFD Minutes.

SB Member Defends Lindberg: At the Monday, May 13, Select Board meeting, member Sandra Russo made a statement in support of fellow board member Stuart Lindberg. He had come under “personal attack” by Amy Perry, a Proctorsville Fire Fighter,  at the last Select Board meeting April 8. She had called for his removal from the board, criticizing the objectivity of Lindberg, who is a volunteer at the Cavendish Fire Department, in the wake of increasing tension between the two departments as the subject of a fire district merger has come to the forefront in Cavendish town politics. Russo went through each complaint levied by Perry, having contacted other organizations where Perry accused Lindberg of inappropriate behavior. Neither group found a problem with his behavior.  Chief Audette of Pine Point Fire Training responded to Russo that he didn’t know where these comments came from and that Lindberg was “professional and courteous and not out of line.”  As for Perry’s concern of Lindberg having hidden personal agendas, Russo offered, “I don’t think anyone has to worry about Stu’s hidden personal agendas. There is nothing hidden about Stu. He tells you how he feels about everything.” Russo finished by saying, “As far as I’m concerned, this issue with Stu being on the Select Board is closed.”  Vermont Journal

GMUSD Board Oks Contract, Appoints New Members, Seeks Safety Upgrades in Cavendish: The board of directors of the Green Mountain Unified School District (GMUSD)  ratified its agreement with its support staff at a special meeting last Thursday, but not without questions about the timing of the work. Wayne Wheelock replaces Kahty Muther as the Baltimore representative to the board. Cavendish representative Doug McBride brought up the issue of school safety at CTES, pointing out that the signal to reduce speed when flashing hasn’t worked in weeks, the school crossing graphics and other lines painted on the street have all but disappeared. He moved to have the superintendent see to them and also on a “non-urgent” basis look into lights for the CTES parking lot and report to the board when the budgeted safety gates would be installed at the school. The motion passed. Chester Telegraph

Chester Telegraph Claims TRSU Board Violated State Open Meeting Law: In a complaint dated May 7 and sent to Two Rivers Supervisory Union Superintendent (TRSU) Meg Powden, board chair Paul Orzechowski, and copied to board members and Chris Winters, Vermont Deputy Secretary of State,  Cynthia Prairie, editor and publisher of The Chester Telegraph, is contending that the board of the SU improperly entered into an executive session even after it was warned that it was doing so illegally. This is not the first time The Telegraph has filed a complaint about the board violating Vermont’s Open Meeting Law. This law allows “public bodies” like select boards and school boards to meet in private but only under specific circumstances. At the May 2 TRSU board meeting, board members did not appear to understand why they were being called into an executive session, nor did the nature of the item to be discussed, “labor relations” met the criteria for exemption. When questioned about the executive session, Powden stated that they weren’t obligated to give any further information, then what appeared on the agenda. The Telegraph believes that it was not cited properly and Powden’s refusing to answer violated at least the spirit of the law that says that the board must “indicate the nature of the  business of the session.” The Telegraph’s written letter to the TRSU Superintendent and Board chair is available here, while the article appears at The Telegraph’s website.

TRSU May 2 Board Meeting: At the May 2, Two Rivers Supervisory Union (TRSU), the board approved a job description for Meg Powden, Superintendent, and looked at a Non-bargaining Personnel handbook draft, which would equalize days off for employees doing the same job across districts. For more information on this meeting, see the VT Journal.

Okemo Valley TV Seeking Board Nominations: The annual Board of Directors election is coming up in June. Would you or someone you know be a good candidate to help local profit, independent, & local public media grow and thrive? Any resident of Andover, Ludlow, Mount Holly, Plymouth, Reading, or Cavendish who is at least 18 years of age is eligible to serve on the Board. Multiple seats are available. If interested contact Executive Director, Patrick Cody 228-8808. Nominations must be received by June 7, Friday.  FMI

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive:  On Saturday, May 11, the National Association of Letter Carriers together with other partners is hosting its 27th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Postal carriers in Cavendish will be participating. Please leave your bag of food donations at your mailbox on Saturday before your letter carrier arrives. In Cavendish, a bin will be set up in the post office to receive donations. The food will be collected and distributed to Black River Good Neighbor Services. Some nonperishable items that are very good choices include canned meat, canned fish, canned fruit and vegetables, box meals, canned soups and chili, boxed or bagged cereal, peanut butter, and coffee. Please do not leave outdated products, home-canned good, or perishable items.

 

4. CHS PLANT SALE CHANGED TO MAY 25: Since it was started, the Cavendish Historical Society’s (CHS) annual plant sale has been held the Saturday before the 4th of July. However, as a result of Town Garage fire (Feb. 2017), the Museum's water supply was adversely impacted.

As the expression goes, "Vermont has two seasons, winter and the 4th of July." Last year’s plant sale was on one of the hottest days in the summer and it was difficult protecting plants from the sun and keeping them hydrated. The decision was made to avoid that by switching the weekend to the Saturday of Memorial Day, which many think of as the planting weekend anyway.


To that end CHS’s annual plant sale will take place on May 25, Saturday, from 9-2 in front of the Museum (Route 131 in Cavendish). The plant list, with new information being added, is available at the CHS Blog. Some plants can be pre ordered including the tomato plants. 

If you have plants you would like to donate to the sale, please call 802-226-7807 or e-mail margocaulfield@icloud.com CHS can help with pots and soil.

CTES Principal Contract Approved/ GMUSD Board Bulks at Hearing CTES Complaints: For years the community has expressed concerns about losing local control over their school. With the Act 46 merger, the Green Mountain Unified School District (GMUSD) board, Cavendish has only  3 representatives on this 11-member board, so  the loss is considerable. However, the April 25 the GMUSD meeting has taken it to a whole new level. Regardless of how one felt about the CTES issue at hand, when the head of the TRSU, which GMUSD is part of, Meg Powden informs the board to not listen to concerns brought to them by teachers, staff and parents because “it undermines the work of the school and also as the governing body and the end of the chain of command, it’s not OK for you to have prior knowledge of a situation,” before getting a presentation on the issue," it's extremely concerning. The meeting can be watched at the Okemo Valley TV website . The Chester Telegraph and the VT Journal both have articles regarding the meeting.

Services for Dr. Gene Bont: There will be two services in memory of Dr. Bont. The first is May 11 (Saturday), 2 pm at Grace Congregational in Rutland with a Celebration of Life on May 12 (Sunday) also at 2PM at Gethsemane's Parish Hall, off Depot Street in Proctorsville. Dr. Bont’s obituary is available online.

 Be on the Look Out: With so many second homes and lots of rural areas, it would appear that our residents and property owners could be easy targets. However, they don’t know Cavendish!  The following notification was recently received-Cavendish peeps: Neighbor stopped this morning to let me know he saw a black Chevy Tahoe with 2 guys around 7 am that appeared to be scoping out the neighborhood. He ran into them again an hour later - followed and they were on every damn dirt road in Cavendish. He did report it to the Sheriff who was by CTES. Also mentioned to me he saw something from Hartland on Craig’s list a bit back - security camera footage of a black Chevy Tahoe towing away the security camera owner’s trailer and lawn tractor. Just be vigilant - we don’t need this in the area. Call the cops if you think anything is suspicious. Better safe than sorry.

 Springfield Hospital Childbirth Center Closes May 3: The Springfield Hospital is closing its childbirth center sooner than expected.  A press release said the hospital is concerned about having enough personnel to safely staff the birthing center. They say the hospital's emergency department doesn't have the proper staff or equipment to handle childbirth, but it will handle childbirth cases as a last resort. WCAX

 

3. CAVENDISH STREETSCAPES: RAISE OUR FLAGS: In the spirit of celebrating the villages of Proctorsville and Cavendish, a committee was formed in the spring of 2018 called Cavendish Streetscapes, in an effort to fund and execute an initiative to hang American flags from utility poles lining Main Street in Cavendish and Proctorsville. The concept was enthusiastically embraced and through generous donations from townspeople and local businesses, enough money was raised to hang flags in a portion of Proctorsville in July 2018.

This spring, the plan is to expand the placement of flags to include the village of Cavendish and around the green and down Depot Street in Proctorsville, as well as launch other beautification projects such as adding bridge flower planters and purchasing benches for our town green. These efforts embody the Cavendish Streetscapes mission statement of undertaking volunteer-led community initiatives to beatify our shared spaces and instill pride in our community. 

If you would like to offer your support, please send donations to Cavendish Streetscapes P.O. Box 605 Cavendish, VT 01542 or Cavendish Streetscapes through Go Fund Me.

For questions or to become involved in the beautifying the communities of Cavendish and Proctorsville, please contact committee member Bruce McEnaney at (802) 226-8045.

 You can learn more about who flags have been raised to honor at The Dish.
