July 1: The 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg

July 1, 1863 marks the 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg. The battle took place in and around Gettysburg from July 1 to July 3. The battle claimed the largest number of casualties of any battle in the Civil War and a battle that many
historians believe was a turning point battle in that conflict.

It could be said that the Battle of Gettysburg began and ended with Vermonters. Soldiers from the Green Mountain state played a role in key engagements before the battle, a Vermont native fired the first shot and three Vermont regiments not only defended against, but twice repelled, Confederate attacks on the heart of the Union line. Had it not been for Vermonters at Gettysburg, the battle—indeed, the Civil War—would have played out much differently. TheBridge 

During the five years of the Civil War, approximately 180 men from Cavendish volunteered for the Union Army. Three of these men received the Congressional Medal of Honor- William Sperry, Tom Seaver and Daniel Davis Wheeler.

Of the 173 names appearing on the Cavendish civil war memorial: 10 died in battle, five from wounds received in battle, four in prison, nine while in the service (diseases like typhoid) and one was lost at sea. At Gettysburg, four soldiers--  Joseph Ashley, Asa Blanchard. Henry Carlisle and Michael Moylan-died in battle or from the wounds they received.

Three brothers from Cavendish, Charles, Edwin, and George Kingston, captured the colors from the 17th Alabama regiment at Gettysburg.

It is interesting to note that in the same year as the battle of Gettysburg, a group of Cavendish women, Evey Kendall, Leizzie Kendall, Mrs. Maria Spaulding, Julia A. Davis, Mary Hemminway, Celia A. Davis, and Ella A. Spaulding made quilt squares. Were these intended for a Civil War soldier? We don’t know, but we do have the quilt squares on display at the Museum.

On Monday June 24, the Cavendish Select board met and took action on the following:

• Paving Project: Seven bids were reviewed for the Cavendish 2013 Paving Projects. The contracts were awarded to Allstate Asphalt and Wilk Paving. 

• Sustainability
-                Solar Array: The board voted to ask Soveren Solar  to begin designing the project for Cavendish. This will consist of an acre of town land-most likely waste water treatment area or by the town pump-which will hold 500 solar panels. This would produce 150 kilowatts or $30,000 worth of electric credits (net metering) a year. Based on the experience with this project, the board may consider future solar arrays in years to come. Rich Svec, town manager, when asked about a possible location of panels up above the Dutton School House, said that this area was not being considered at this time and that if area residents had any questions about location, they should contact him.  The board is concerned about esthetics as well as the ability to save money and reduce the town’s carbon footprint. To learn more about this project, see the Cavendish Update 6/14/13 
-                Zero-Sort Recycling: Svec is working with Cassela regarding an implementation of a Zero Sort recycling program at the Cavendish Transfer station, possibly as early as August. See article 5 below for more information about Zero Sort.

Cavendish Resident Josh Frye Earns CertifiedSolid Works Associate Certification: The River Valley Technical Center would like to congratulate Joshua Frye, a senior in the Mechanical Design and Innovation (MDI) level II class from Green Mountain Union High School. Mr. Frye became only the 5th high school student in RVTC history to earn the Certified Solid Works Associate (CSWA) certification. Josh scored a 230 out a possible 240 and accomplished this in a little over 2 hours.  The exam allows 3 hours. Josh is employed as a 3D CAD Designer for J and L Metrology in Springfield.  He will be attending Vermont Technical College for Mechanical Engineering Technology in the fall of 2013.  Vermont Journal

Couple Postpones Retirement to Rebuild AfterIrene: Cavendish Town Elementary School principal George Thomson and his wife Linda, have moved four times since their home on Lake Pauline was destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene. Thomson had planned to retire this year, now he’s putting it off. After floodwaters engulfed their old home, the couple spent nearly $20,000 trying to save it and when that didn’t work –about another $20,000 demolishing it. VPR 

Creativity in Hiding Valuables in your Hometo Prevent Theft: With the increasing number of burglaries in Vermont, the State Police have issued a press release on ways to keep valuables safe. 

Increase in Saturation Patrols and Sobriety/Safety Checkpoints for 4th of July Weekend: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), states that twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over this weekend and four times as many occur at night. Many of the state's law enforcement agencies will be on the state's roads this weekend. They will be patrolling in areas of the state where data indicates that impaired driving crashes are happening. In response, sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols will be conducted in selected locations throughout the state. The Vermont State Police, Sheriff's Departments, and municipal agencies and local Constables will be participating in these enforcement campaigns in an effort to keep all motorists safe.

VT Officials Prepare for Extended Periods of Rain: The Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) has been working with municipalities, emergency responders, the National Guard, and other state and federal partners today to prepare for any problems that could stem from the extended period of rain the state has seen. Vermont’s extended period of rain is expected to last into at least next Tuesday (July 2nd) and saturated soils and rivers may be unable to absorb more precipitation.  No flooding is imminent, but the National Weather Service says flooding could occur in as yet undetermined areas of the state due to heavy rain.

Featuring the annual plant sale, that is now decades old, Summer Fest at the Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) Museum grounds is on July 6 (Saturday)-rain or shine- starting at 9 am. In addition to the best Hosta around, there will be a unique “gardener’s booth,” where CHS has their special Gardener’s Sugar Scrub-good for cleaning up after gardening and other messy jobs-for sale. In the “green vein,” members of CHS have been collecting soda and beer cans from Cavendish roadways and up cycled them into unique herb/plant markers and plant tags. Never again worry about transplanting the wrong thing thanks to  a CHS Plant Tag. Fabric of all sorts has been up cycled into a variety of amazing items-pillows, quilts and ornaments. Be sure to check out the Christmas in July table. There is also a silent auction, which will end at 1 pm.

The Historical Society Museum will be open and a summer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn exhibit can be seen along with the latest information on Phineas Gage, the newly created “kitchen” area, and a special “reading nook that provides an opportunity to watch various videos about Cavendish and its residents. Many of the Solzhenitsyn DVDs are available for viewing.

There will be a variety of vendors, antique tractors, and food including Moonlite Meadows, whose farm features grass fed beef and lamb, as well as eggs from free range chickens. This is the last day to vote in the Cavendish Calendar Competition so be sure and stop by the CCCA booth to cast your ballot.

A village wide affair, the Cavendish Fire Department will be holding their annual Chicken BBQ and the Cavendish Stone Church, the future home of the Aleksandr permanent exhibit, will be open for tours from 10-1. FMI: 226-7807 or

In 2012, a Vermont law was passed that requires statewide recycling including compost. The need for this law was due to the fact that Vermont’s landfills are almost full. The  timeline for removal of materials from the solid waste stream will be as follows: By 2014 mandated recyclables (paper, plastics etc.); 2015 Yard waste and 2017 food waste.

In accordance with this law, the Select Board has voted to go with Zero Sort Recycling, provided by Casella,  for the Cavendish Transfer Station. This means that all of recyclables will go in to one container-no more sorting. Not only will it be easier to recycle, but many more items can be-plastics, metal, glass and paper materials. You can learn more about Zero Sort by watching How Zero Sort Works.

Because of the pending changes, adjustments were made in Cavendish town budget to accommodate for the upgrades at the Transfer Station for Zero-Sort Recycling. Not only is this the right thing to do for the environment, but it will also save transfer station users money and time.

Try something new this summer. Try a 1 hour Pilates class at Gethsemane Church Community Center on Tuesdays & Thursdays in July at 10 am. First class is July 2 (Tuesday).

Jamie Ward is a certified  instructor from NYC. The cost is $10 and open to all.

A Pilates mat class uses an exercise mat and hand held equipment, like other classes, but the goal is different. When you start Pilates, the focus is on getting your center body strong, first. We call the center, your ‘core’ and with a strong ‘core’ you can do everything easier. You can bend over, lift, throw, reach and walk with more control and balance (also garden, golf, swim, ride....etc.). 

In Pilates we take the approach that tight muscles and a weak ‘core’ create problems with our structure. Over time, these problems start to change our posture and can cause knee, foot and hip imbalances. The Pilates exercises can identify and these problems and balance the under-used, weak side. So stop putting up with the pain and do some Pilates. It’s not magic and it’s not a gimmick. It’s also not easy- because you have to think while you do Pilates. It takes concentration to stabilize muscles and move your body.        

Even if you don’t own an exercise mat, come to a class.  I will bring an extra. Pilates is for men and women of all ages to try. It will tone and strengthen your muscles and make you feel taller.

If you can’t make it, I am also teaching Pilates classes at the Okemo Spring House ( Mon. & Wed. at 9am ) and the Castle Hill Spa (Tues. & Thurs. at 8am ) for the same price.  FMI:

Creativity in Hiding Valuables in your Home to Prevent Theft

The following is a press release from the VT State Police.

With the increase in opiate and other drug related addictions in The State of Vermont there has been a clear spike in Burglaries where valuables to include Jewelry, Gold, Silver, Money, and Sterling Silver are stolen. These items can be quickly pawned at coin and jewelry shops for a fast cash return.

A burglar leaves the victims of their crime shaken and traumatized with a sense of insecurity. Citizens should be cognizant that burglars know the most common hiding spots in ones home. During various investigations throughout the past year it's been found that burglars typically will enter a home and go straight for the master bedroom dresser, jewelry box, or closet. If citizens have their expensive jewelry neatly organized in one of these locations it's extremely easy for the thief to locate that same organized spot and steal all of it. Typically a simple pillow case is stolen off the victim's bed and used as a sack to steal the valuables.

Citizens need to be aware burglars know the common hiding spots. There is a time frame for thieves to look around. They are not going to want to stay in your home longer than necessary to prevent detection from you the homeowner, a neighbor, or even just someone passing by the home. Because of this time restriction hiding valuables may prevent theft. In order for this to be effective you have to hide your items in an inconspicuous location essentially making them "invisible" to the searching eye.

The following are some things you can do to be creative and think outside the box to prevent valuable jewelry thefts:

Hide expensive valuables in a room other than your master bedroom. Be creative in where you put the jewelry. You could place the jewelry in a shoe box in the top shelf of a child's bedroom closet room or other location. Thieves aren't going to take extra time to look in inconspicuous locations. If you have an event coming up bring your jewelry out but hide it again if the jewelry is going to be just sitting for weeks or months at time. Hiding Jewelry in your kitchen is another option inside a box or bag. Placing it in a box or other container in one of many kitchen cabinet works well too. Thieves do not want to take the time to conduct and thorough search for your valuables.

Inexpensive security boxes containing cash and other valuable items kept in the master bedroom are practically ineffective as they are typically stolen. If you have money at home you may consider hiding your money in a creative spot or simply burying your money or other valuables in a secure location outside. Wrap the item in a plastic bag before doing so. Imitation rocks with small enclosed compartments are also available for concealing items; you can then place them in the garden along with the real rocks and stones. A thief is not going to take the time to check your property for your hidden money.

Hiding valuables in your basement or garage can be very beneficial. These areas tend can be cluttered. If the area is cluttered a thief isn't going to want to take the time to do a thorough search. The thieve is not going to want to look through 15 boxes on a shelf in your basement to find your $10,000 in jewelry or your $2,000 in cash. You will know which box your valuables are in but the thief will not.

As a community policing article the Vermont State Police New Haven Troopers want to provide this information to the citizens of Addison County to prevent family valuables from being stolen and pawned or sold. Anyone who would like more advice is asked to Contact The New Haven State Police Barracks at 1-802-388-4919.

Support Cavendish Library by Buying Books atthe Book Nook: After a very successful first Summer READing Book Fair in June 2012 where we raised over $350 and donated over $150 in books to support the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library, Ludlow's Fletcher Memorial Library and the Mount Holly Town Library, The Book Nook will be hosting another book fair this year. We encourage everybody who appreciates the communal public spaces and services provide by our local libraries to stop by The Book Nook June 14 through June 23 and buy a book (or books) to help support those very same libraries.  Vermont Journal 

FEMA Irene Aid Tops $185 M: FEMA has spent more than $185 million dollars in Vermont to assist with Tropical Storm Irene recovery.  The total is significantly higher than any other sources of recovery funds. According to information compiled by VPR, towns, rather than the state, received the lion’s share of the money. $142 million was spent on individual assistance and for local infrastructure repairs. The largest portion was to fix roads and bridges. Cavendish has spent $3,566,215, while Ludlow spent $2,766,660 and Chester $2,347,379. VPR 

SpringfieldApproves Agreement with Biomass Developers: The Town of Springfield has approved an agreement with the developers of a proposed wood-burning power plant in North Springfield. Town officials say the big decisions about the project are in the hands of state agencies and experts. They say their agreement covers issues within control of the town. The 35-megawatt biomass proposal has been through permit hearings before the state Public Service Board, and a decision could come this summer. The project has sparked vocal opposition in North Springfield. The Springfield Select Board hasn’t taken an official position. VPR 

MajorDrug Operation Arrests: Almost three dozen people in the Springfield, Ludlow area were arrested Wednesday as part of an expanding effort to tamp down a burgeoning problem with opiate drugs, especially heroin, across the state, police said. Three people remained at large following the Springfield area sweep, which was part of a six-month operation by the Vermont Drug Task Force and state and federal agencies called Operation Precision Valley. The operation was similar to a raid carried out in the Bennington area earlier this year that resulted in the arrests of 47 people. Those arrested were primarily from Springfield and New Jersey, with those from the latter area being arrested at the Trailside Condos in Ludlow. Burlington Free Press 

The Trestle Bridge area in Proctorsville is a popular swimming hole for many in Cavendish. Last year, Black River Action Team (BRAT) was kind enough to check it several times after concerns were raised about its safety.

Recently the Okemo Mountain Resort area adopted Buttermilk Falls. The resort’s Permits & Compliance Coordinator has been trained to collect samples of water from the popular swimming hole in special bottles. The samples are tested at Endyne Labs in Lebanon NH within a specific time frame, to get an accurate count of the levels of the bacteria Eshericia coli (commonly known as E.coli). Results are graphed and posted within 48 hours of sample collection, to help give visitors a snapshot of the state of the water.

BRAT would like to bring this same service to Proctorsville, but it needs a business or several people to adopt it. A volunteer can be trained to do the water testing. The adoption fee is $500 for the season and it covers the cost of 14 tests (every week) plus a sign (with landowner’s permission), with results posted every Friday.

If you are interesting in this “adoption,” please contact BRAT (802) 885-1533, or log on to

The Ludlow “Blotter” of January 17, 1856 (The Blotter was published from 1854-October 1856) reports on the Cavendish Temperance Society’s annual meeting on January 1. According to Rev. Thomas Hadrman, “Intoxicating liquors kill men a great deal quicker during the last twenty years then ever before; now if a man is in the habit of taking intoxicating drinks, in three years he will die. This is owing to the adulteration of liquors. “ The lecturer described the influences of intoxicating liquors upon the stomach, toughening the pyloric orifice of that organ, and deranging the entire system. Referred to the practice of mother’s giving gin to babies to ease them of the gripes, when it was just the thing to make them have gripes of the very worst kind.

According to the Cavendish Historical Society’s (CHS) genealogist Linda Welch,  Practically the whole town of Cavendish belonged to the TEMPERANCE Society. (except for the immigrant population that worked in the mills, and the poor farmers, etc.) Read the article at the CHS blog

8. FIGHT THE BITE-Take precautions against mosquito-borne illness
Mosquitoes can be more than a nuisance – not only do they take your blood and make you itch, they can also spread viral diseases such as West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis.

As the coming warm weather brings out the insects, the Health Department encourages Vermonters to enjoy outdoor activities while taking simple precautions to avoid bites.
Human illness caused by mosquitoes is uncommon in the state, but in 2012, two people died from Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), and three people were diagnosed with West Nile virus (WNV).

No Matter Where You Live – Enjoy the Outdoors, but Fight the Bite!

•Weather permitting, wear long sleeves and pants and avoid outdoor activities at dusk and dawn – when mosquitoes are most active.

•Reduce mosquito breeding habitats by getting rid of standing water. Drain areas where water can pool: rain gutters, wading pools and any other water-holding containers such as old tires.

•If you are outside when mosquitoes are biting, use an effective insect repellent. Choose repellents that have an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration number on the label. This indicates that the product has been evaluated for safety and effectiveness. Repellents that contain no more than 30 percent DEET are safe and effective for children and adults. When using insect repellent, always follow the directions on the label. EPA has an app that helps you search for a repellent that is right for you – Go to and use the A-Z listing to go to ‘Insect Repellents’.

•Install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out.

•Protect your animals. Horses are susceptible to WNV and EEE infection, and there are effective vaccines available. Llamas, alpacas and emus are also susceptible and can be immunized with the horse vaccine.

•Contact your health care provider if you have questions about your health or need medical attention.

The Health Department is offering a WNV/EEE information line to answer questions from the public. The phone line – 800-913-1139 – will be operational from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information on West Nile Virus and EEE and to find out the latest surveillance information, visit the Vermont Department of Health’s website at

Monday, June 24 is a special select board meeting dealing with various sustainability issues and other matters. As soon as the agenda is received it will be posted to the Cavendish Update blog
