Apple Blossom Cotillion Children

Elementary school children in grades Kindergarten through 4th are invited to participate in the 59th annual Apple Blossom Cotillion. These younger performers, always a crowd pleaser, are introduced in couples, just like the high school participants and escorts, and they perform several singing and dancing numbers.

This year's Cotillion is on Friday and Saturday, May 1 & 2 and it's directors are Pam Church Shaughnessy and Kayla Beardsley White, assisted by Carrie Patch Jewell.

Children should apply in couples - a girl and her male escort - just like the high school participants. Elementary school couples who submit a completed application by the due date of December 8 are eligible to participate unless the number of applicants exceeds the capacity of the production. In that case, a random drawing will be held on December 11 to determine participants.

An orientation for all parents and participants, including elementary school children, is on Sunday, January 4 at 1 pm. Weekly rehearsals for elementary school participants start on Sunday, March 1.

Parents who would like their children to participate may obtain an application form from the Springfield Hospital Development office, 802-885-7644 or email or at the Chester-Andover Elementary School.

Be Safe Travelling Today

Vermont Emergency Management
If you are travelling today:
1. Check the forecast now - not just for your home, but also your destination
2. Leave early so you can drive slow in tricky conditions (or to beat the storm!)
3. Leave plenty of room between your car and the vehicle in front of you in bad weather
4. Gas up at the beginning of the trip


Hope for Horses: Help Give 23 Arabians a Second Chance
On November 13th, Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society joined Woodstock VT Police, the Green Mountain Horse Association, local veterinarians and other concerned volunteers in rescuing 23 severely malnourished horses from deplorable conditions at a Woodstock farm.

The Arabians -- mares, geldings, and stallions -- were found standing in manure and urine with no food or water in four, pitch dark barns. Their plight was the result of years of neglect...and prospects were dim as winter closed in.

The rescue was successful.  Today, the horses are safe and cared for in a clean, warm GMHA barn, being fed round the clock, under constant veterinary care, and nurtured by scores of voluteers.

However, this care may be required for many months as the legal process grinds forward. Therefore, to continue providing the many thousands of dollars that will be required, Lucy Mackenzie desperately needs your help to nurse the horses back to health and a future of loving homes.

Nor'Easter On It's Way - Drive Safe

"I'm dreaming of a White Thanksgiving??"

The nor'easter that we've been tracking the last few days is right on our doorstep now. And it looks stronger, juicier, will head farther north, start earlier, and end later than it looked earlier.

What that means is that we're all going to get in on a pretty hefty dumping of snow on this busy travel day before Thanksgiving.

We're looking at a widespread 6-12" snowfall, with even more in our far southern areas, and just a little less in northern NY.

The earlier you can travel today, the better. This storm will be at its peak right at the worst time - during the late afternoon & evening.

Be very careful and give yourself plenty of extra time. The going will be slow. -Gary

Vermonters Encouraged to Prepare for Winter Driving

Vermont Department of Public Safety
Press Release
November 25, 2014
9:00 a.m.
Lt. Garry Scott, VT State Police: (802) 872-4056 or (802) 238-3042
Mark Bosma, VT Public Safety: (800) 347-0488 or (802) 839-6717
Vermonters Encouraged to Prepare for Winter Driving
Snow could affect holiday travel

WATERBURY – A snowy forecast for Wednesday and Thursday could create challenges for those travelling on the Thanksgiving holiday. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Bennington and Windham counties and Winter Storm Watches for other areas of the state. Significant snowfall is possible in much of the state.
Drivers should monitor forecasts and adjust travel times accordingly based on conditions. Now and throughout the winter you should always build in extra travel time to allow for slower speeds in difficult conditions. When on the road you should also leave extra space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you to allow for longer breaking distances.
For weather and other alerts direct to your cell phone or e-mail box sign up for a free Vermont Alert account at You select how you wish to receive alerts and which alerts you want. For road conditions visit or call 511. 9-1-1 should be used for emergency situations only – NOT road conditions.
It’s important in Vermont to prepare for winter driving and the heightened risks on the road that are inherent to the time of year when we see snow and ice on the roads. The following is a list of Automobile Safety Tips and a list of items to be included in your Winter Emergency Car Kit.

• Have a well-stocked Winter Emergency Car Kit (below).
• Plan long trips carefully, listening to the radio or NOAA Weather Radio for the latest weather forecasts and road conditions.
• Let others know your timetable and primary and alternate routes. Allow extra time. The first ½” of snow is sometimes the most slippery. Allow adequate braking distance from the car in front of you.
• Slow down. Many times hazards like black ice are not seen until it is too late. Remember bridges and overpasses can freeze up sooner than roadways.
• Be extra alert. Snowdrifts and snowbanks can hide children or other vehicles.
• Yield to snowplows giving them plenty of room to safely do their job. Be patient and follow at a safe distance.
• Travel during daylight hours, and if possible, take another person with you.
• If you do become stuck, ensure your exhaust pipe is free of obstructions like snow and able to vent. Dangerous Carbon Monoxide can incapacitate you if it is unable to vent out of the car.
• Keep your gas tank at least half-full at all times if possible.
• Install snow tires with adequate tread and pressure.
• Keep a windshield scraper and small broom for ice and snow removal. Keep all windows clear of snow and ice and keep your headlights and taillights clear, as well.
• Check your antifreeze, battery, windshield wipers and wiper fluid.

• Flashlight with extra batteries
• Windshield scraper & brush
• Charged cell phone/automobile charger
• Battery jumper cables
• Road flares/reflectors
• Basic first-aid kit
• Pocket knife
• Blankets or sleeping bags
• Extra clothes (include rain gear, boots, mittens, socks)
• Fire extinguisher
• Shovel
• Sand/road salt/cat litter for generating traction
• Tire chains or traction mats
• Basic tool kit (pliers, wrench, screwdriver)
• Tow rope
• Brightly colored cloth to utilize as a flag
• Road maps

Cross and her husband, Dick, of Weathersfield, Vt.; grandchildren, Kevin Merriman and his wife, Beth, of Victor, N.Y., Kelly Merriman and his wife, Chrisann, of Salado, Texas, Debra Fortin of Rockport, Texas, Jeff Gee and his wife, Felice, of Cedar Park, Texas, Donna Wise and her husband, Eric, of Round Rock, Texas; great-grandchildren, Joel and Renee Merriman, Owen Merriman, Shane Fortin, Hannah Fortin and Norah Fortin and Jackson Wise.

Vermont Health Care Website Working


 Vermont individuals and families seeking health coverage began enrolling in plans Saturday after fixes were made to the state's troubled health insurance exchange.

The three-month open-enrollment period began Saturday. Lawrence Miller, director of health care reform for the administration of Gov. Peter Shumlin, said Vermont Health Connect processed 50 new applications and 201 renewals by Saturday at 1 p.m. The exchange was working well with some isolated minor issues in the morning that were quickly resolved, he said.

"The system is operating as expected, we're promptly dealing with minor issues that pop up, and we look forward to continuing to help Vermonters access health coverage," he said earlier in the day, more than a year after state-administered health insurance marketplace was set up under the federal Affordable Care Act.

In September, the Vermont Health Connect website was taken down after federal officials warned the state about continuing security problems.

Miller said earlier in the week that security and functionality problems that have plagued the health insurance purchasing system in the past have been resolved.

Vermont Health Connect still isn't ready to handle small business accounts, and employers with 50 or fewer employees still need to deal directly with insurance carriers, Miller said.

Problems arose early on when the exchange was originally launched in enrolling people and small-businesses, keeping the information secure and other issues.

The state decided to reduce the role of its original prime contractor and hire a new one. Miller also replaced Vermont Health Access Commissioner Mark Larson in overseeing the program.

IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting

TIGTA Warns of “Largest Ever” Phone Fraud Scam Targeting Taxpayers

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration (TIGTA) today issued a warning to taxpayers to beware of phone calls from individuals claiming to represent the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in an effort to defraud them.

“This is the largest scam of its kind that we have ever seen,” said J. Russell George, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. George noted that TIGTA has received reports of over 20,000 contacts and has become aware of thousands of victims who have collectively paid over $1 million as a result of the scam, in which individuals make unsolicited calls to taxpayers fraudulently claiming to be IRS officials.

“The increasing number of people receiving these unsolicited calls from individuals who fraudulently claim to represent the IRS is alarming,” he said. “At all times, and particularly during the tax filing season, we want to make sure that innocent taxpayers are alert to this scam so they are not harmed by these criminals,” George said, adding, “Do not become a victim.”

Inspector General George urged taxpayers to heed warnings about the sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, noting that the scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every State in the country. Callers claiming to be from the IRS tell intended victims they owe taxes and must pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. The scammers threaten those who refuse to pay with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver’s license.

The truth is the IRS usually first contacts people by mail – not by phone – about unpaid taxes. And the IRS won’t ask for payment using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. The IRS also won’t ask for a credit card number over the phone.

“If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and uses threatening language if you don’t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn’t the IRS calling,” he said.

The callers who commit this fraud often:
  • Use common names and fake IRS badge numbers.
  • Know the last four digits of the victim’s Social Security Number.
  • Make caller ID information appear as if the IRS is calling.
  • Send bogus IRS e-mails to support their scam.
  • Call a second time claiming to be the police or department of motor vehicles, and the caller ID again supports their claim.
If you get a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS asking for a payment, here’s what to do:
  • If you owe Federal taxes, or think you might owe taxes, hang up and call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you with your payment questions.
  • If you don’t owe taxes, call and report the incident to TIGTA at 800-366-4484.
  • You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at Add “IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments in your complaint.
TIGTA and the IRS encourage taxpayers to be alert for phone and e-mail scams that use the IRS name. The IRS will never request personal or financial information by e-mail, texting or any social media. You should forward scam e-mails to Don’t open any attachments or click on any links in those e-mails.

Taxpayers should be aware that there are other unrelated scams (such as a lottery sweepstakes winner) and solicitations (such as debt relief) that fraudulently claim to be from the IRS.

The OneCard Project at Weathersfield Proctor Library

The OneCard is a project of Upper Valley Vermont libraries to allow patrons to use one card to borrow from any participating library.  

 Each library has its own policies on borrowing, and patrons will be responsible for following these policies at each library.  

If you are a Weathersfield Proctor Library card holder for at least 6 months and your account is in good standing, you may come to the library and we will place a "OneCard" sticker on your library card. 

This will identify you as a OneCard patron at all participating libraries.  

With your OneCard you may borrow items from these libraries of the Upper Valley:

Bradford Public Library
Chelsea Public Library
Blake Memorial Library
Fairlee Public Library
Hartford Library
Hartland Public Library
Norwich Public Library
Quechee Library
Weathersfield Proctor Library
Wilder Library
Windsor Public Library

As a OneCard patron you will be responsible for returning your items to the library where the items were checked out.  

Now you can visit any of these 11 participating libraries and check out items!  

Come in and get your OneCard sticker and brochure that lists all of the participating libraries and their hours.
