2. CTES Needs a Freezer
The Nutrition Committee at C.T.E.S. is in need of freezer storage space. The school garden is set to expand this coming season. Many of the organic vegetables and fruits that we will grow can be frozen for later use by the school kitchen. However, there is a freezer storage space dilemma. If anyone has extra freezer space and is willing to help us out or have a freezer to donate, contact Lisa Ewald at (802)484-5323 or e-mail

February 13 (Friday): Cavendish’s Black & White Nights film series screens “The Hustler.” Made in 1961, this award winning gritty classic still has legs. It tells the story of a small-time pool hustler, “Fast Eddie” Felson, played by Newman. He is consumed by his desire to prove he’s the best player in the country---all he has to do is beat the legendary “Minnesota Fats,” played by Jackie Gleason. Filmed in New York City in six weeks at two real pool halls, the film was a critical success in the way it dealt with themes of winning, losing and character. The film was so popular with the public that it sparked a resurgence in playing pool across America. Newman’s powerful role as “Fast Eddie” is about what it is to be a human being, couched in the context of how to attain self-awareness through winning and losing. The Hustler was nominated for nine Academy Awards and is considered on the top ten best films in the American classic genre. It will be shown at 7:00 at Cavendish Elementary School on Rte. 131 in Proctorsville. FMI 226-7187 or 226-7497.
