Yang Bao to Perform
at the North Hero
Community Hall
For the past 4 seasons Yang Bao, pianist, has
performed at the North Hero Community Hall with
all profits going to the Island Arts Youth Scholarship
IA is thrilled that he will return on Saturday,
August, 29 at 8:00 p.m. for another benefit concert.
He recently graduated from the New England
Conservatory of Music with a bachelor’s degree
in music performance studying with the world
renowned pianist Wha-Kyung Byun. Soon, he will
return to the Conservatory to continue his studies
with Mr. Byun in the two year masters degree
Yang was born in Lanzhou, China where he began
his musical career at the age of three. At age
nine, he was awarded a full scholarship to study at
Juilliard, in New York City, that offers one of the most
prestigious programs in the world for pre-college age
musicians. His awards and honors are too numerous
to mention, but some include Young Artist’s Award
from Philadelphia’s Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra,
the Marion Anderson Award for young musicians,
and last year, he was invited by New Jersey’s Ocean
City Pops to perform the Rachmaninoff Second Piano
Island Arts is honored to have Yang Bao take time
from his studies and many performances to return to
the Champlain Islands to raise funds for creative arts
youth scholarships in Grand Isle County. Tickets are
$25 at the door but can be purchased in advance for
$20 at the Alburgh Public Library, the Back Chamber
in North Hero, the Isle La Motte Country Store, and in
South Hero at The Green Frog and Hackett’s Orchard.

We also welcome Justin Bissonette as our new physical education teacher. Mr.
Bissonette teaches P.E. at Charlotte Elementary School, and is famous for playing
baseball at the University of Vermont. Our special schedule this year will be: P.E.
on Mondays and Wednesdays, art with Mr. Lee on Tuesdays, library and guidance
with Mrs. Groff and Mr. Lee on Thursdays and music on Fridays.
Teachers across the district are looking into transitioning some of our math learning from the Bridges in
Mathematics to Engage New York. In the past few years there have been many questions about our teaching
of that new math. Engage New York still teaches multiple strategy options for all different learning styles, but
it seems to offer a more concrete and foundational, more familiar look at teaching math. Ms. Aubin began the
process of exploration last year with grade six and it was very positive.
With the new standardized testing system that students participated in this year we remain under the
microscope of the Adequate Yearly Progress monitoring from the Agency of Education. Nearly all schools in
Vermont are monitored through an improvement plan. North Hero School will continue to work with a school
improvement coordinator this year.
Finally, I would like to invite you to come join me on Tuesday, August 25 at 6:30 pm for a question and answer
session, to enjoy a frozen treat and to help ease the first day jitters. We will have an informal informational
meeting where I hope to answer any questions that will support a smooth transition into what will certainly
be an amazing year.

Board Members Present: Christopher Herrick, Skip Brown, Board Secretary, Jonathan Shaw, Anne Zolotas.
Board Members Not Present: Carol Tremble
Public Hearing for updated Town Plan: Suggested changes made to the Town Plan after the Planning
Commission Hearing were described and discussed. Note that those changes have been on the Town website
for over a month. There was also a discussion about private roads in Town. Since it is up to the private road
owners to maintain them the town does not have a lot of say in their upkeep or safety. Suggestions can be
made, but it is up to the owners’ discretion to do the suggested upgrades. This does not apply to the Town
Plan. Jonathan Shaw made a motion to close the public hearing at 7:22 pm. The motion was seconded, all in
attendance so voted and the motion carried.
Public input: A. Sandy Gregg of the Library Steering Committee was present to ask if the committee could
study the feasibility of possibly building a library on or near the Folsom parking lot could be looked into. The
consensus of the Board is that it is OK to look into this but much more information is necessary. Also, she
asked if the Clever Design building is a possibility, could overflow parking, if necessary be on the Town Garage
property. This is a question for the Planning or Zoning Commissions as setback requirements must be met. B.
Bob Buermann, chair of the Northwest Regional Planning Commission said that the NRPC just updated the
regional plan. A motion was made and approved to accept the Northwest Regional Plan as adopted by the
NRPC. C. A motion was made and approved to recognize Bob Buermann as Citizen Planner of the Year and
endorses his nomination as Northern New England Citizen Planner of the year.
New Business: A. A motion was made and approved to adopt the updated Town Plan as presented. B. There
was a discussion of the Town Audit. A motion was made and approved to have an RFP prepared to put the
Town Audit out to bid and to be discussed at the August 24, 2015 meeting. Chairman Herrick will reach out to
Carol Tremble to prepare this.
Old and Ongoing Business: A. South Street project from Martin to Landon Road updates: The State is still
working on the final Rights of Way documents presented to them and Evan Detrick met with the Saxon and
Dubuque families again to work out some details. He presented a letter to the Board with his discussions.
Administrative Assistant Report: A. See the written report in Town Hall for all of the discussion points. B.
There is new application pending for work at 33 Ferry Road.
Other Business: A. A motion was made and approved to sign the order #16-04 and pay the bills associated
with said order. B. A motion was made and approved to accept the errors and omission from the Listers for
the property at 4 Contentment Lane. C. Members of the Grand Isle Selectboard will come to the South Hero
Selectboard meeting on September 14 to discuss grant opportunities to study the feasibility of combining
some Town services. D. There are 2 ZBA seats up for appointment in October. An ad will be placed for letters of
intent. E. There was an executive session for personnel matters. After exiting executive session, a motion was
made and approved to give all Town employees a raise of 2%.

Grand Isle County Based
Young Concert Artists to Shine on Isle La Motte
The second Pro-Series Concert at Fisk Farm on Isle La Motte will take place on Saturday evening, at 7:30 pm.
Presented by the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust, this musical event will introduce two extraordinary young
artists, new to the concert series on Isle La Motte. Last year violinist Ladusa Chang-Ou, at the age of 17, was a
first prize winner in the prestigious Classical Music Competition in Canada (Concours de Musique de Canada).
Over the last few years, the list of internationally known artists who have won top awards in this competition
is remarkable and includes the likes of Angela Hewitt, James Innes and many others. She performed her first
debut as guest soloist with professional ensemble: Longueuil Symphony Orchestra at the age of ten. In 2011
Ladusa was invited to play solo with the Montreal Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra at Place des Arts.
Performing with Ladusa is Pianist Philippe Prud’homme, 24, winner of two first prizes at the Canadian
Music Competition and a first prize at the Quebec Contemporary Music Society. He has been guest soloist with
the Orchestre de la Francophonie and I Musici de Montreal and has collaborated with renowned conductors
such as Jean-François Rivest, Yuli Turovsky and Jean-Philippe Tremblay.
The program will include the Paganini Caprice #24, considered one of the most difficult pieces ever written
for solo violin and the Liszt Ballade #2, one of Liszt’s finest piano works. Along with these solo fireworks the
two will perform the haunting Sibelus violin concerto, ending the program with the virtuosic Carmen Fantasy,
for violin and piano.
As the July Pro-Series concert was sold out several days ahead of time and as this concert promises to be
as spectacular as the July performance, advance reservations for inside seating are advised. Seats reserved
in advance are $25 and $28 at the door if there is still room. Email [email protected] or call 802 928-3364 for
reservations. Seating on the lawn is $15 and children on the lawn accompanied by a paying adult are free.
Concert goers are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy on the lawn before the concert. The grounds open at 6:30.

Martie Majoros from the Howard Center has some ideas on how to help your child prepare for the upcoming
school year, which starts August 26 for Milton students. If your child is going to school for the first time, it is
suggested that you be positive and excited about kindergarten. This will help your child feel good about it,
too. Start the daily routines; getting up earlier, going to bed earlier and picking out clothes the night before;
before school starts. If possible, visit the school and meet the kindergarten teacher and if you live near the
school, play on the school playground. This is a big adjustment for your child and for you. How does your child
respond to new things and how can you support your child? For children who have a tough time separating,
consider using a transitional object that has meaning for both you and your child, such as a photo, that your
child can take to school. It can help your child to feel connected to you throughout the day. And always read
to your child as often as you can.
If your child is a returning student, again start daily routines before school starts. Help your children take
advantage of social opportunities at school. Sports, clubs, and afterschool programs are great places for kids
to connect to one another and make new friends. Remind returning students of their past successes. This will
help build positive associations with school in their minds. Become familiar with the types of support available
through your school. Teachers, nurses, principals and guidance counselors are all excellent resources. They see
the same patterns emerge every year, and they are likely to have solutions that will work for your child.
Have a great school year!

From Landscape Architect to Watercolor Artist
A visiting watercolor artist from Pennsylvania, formerly a prize winning landscape architect, will exhibit
his work in the Art Barn at Fisk Farm beginning Sunday, August 23. For much of his life, Henry Arnold pursued
an artistic career as a landscape architect and urban planner, working in Princeton, New Jersey on projects
throughout the United States and Southeast Asia. As author of “Trees in Urban Design” he received the
American Publishers award in 1980 for Best Book in Architecture & Urban Planning. Named Distinguished
Artist by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in 1988 Arnold received three juried national awards for
outstanding design projects and won a national competition in collaboration with Maya Lin for a public art
work at the Charlotte Coliseum in North Carolina. Arnold merged his vocation with an avocation in watercolor
painting and has followed the painting career as his primary discipline since 2005. Arnold received an award
from Salmagundi Club in 2011 for Best Work in SCNY Art Classes Exhibition; in 2012, The Margery Soroka
Memorial Award for outstanding work and in 2014, The President’s Best in Show Award in the SCNY Art

To the Editor,
This letter is a
notice to all the
from your Select
Board. The Board
is negotiating with
a Vermont solar
energy developer
who is interested in leasing land owned by the
Town to build and operate an installation of solar
panels. The Town owns a 50 acre parcel of land off
West Shore Road. At present, small portions of the
tract are being utilized by our trash transfer station
and the West View Cemetery. The remaining acres
of land are the location of the capped landfill and
open fields. The solar energy developer is interested
in leasing approximately 30 acres of this parcel for
this project. The exact amount of space needed will
depend on final engineering studies. Unfortunately,
this land lacks easy access to the 3 phase power line
that runs along Route 2. This access is essential for
distribution of the power generated by the solar
project to the electricity supply system. The solar
energy developer is investigating possible alternate
routes to build that connection. Once they find a
cost-effective route, they in turn will absorb all of
the construction costs at no cost to the Town.
In order to finalize a relationship with the Town,
the solar energy developer must first get approvals
from the State. In addition, they need to establish a
relationship with a public utility company that will
be buying the power generated by the proposed
site. When the solar energy developer receives
those approvals and finalizes an arrangement
with the utility company, the Town will then be
in a position to receive $137,500 annually for a
25 year lease, representing potential revenue of
$3.4 million over the life of the lease. The Board
will be holding two informational meetings
during which representatives of the solar energy
development company and the Select Board will
be available to answer questions from the public.
Both informational meetings will be held in the
meeting room at our Town Clerk’s Office, the first
on Saturday, August 29 at 10 am and the second on
Tuesday, September 8, starting at 7 pm.
Yours truly,
The North Hero Select Board

Farm and Food Festival
On August 30, Health Hero Farm is hosting the third annual Lake Champlain Islands Farm and Food Festival with an exciting
addition. Building on the Islands’ well-deserved reputation for vibrant farms, local foods and a warm welcome, the festival
organizers are also reaching out to bike riders with an invitation to discover one of the best regions for biking in Vermont.
The Lake Champlain Islands Farm and Food Festival, held from 3 to 6 pm, will feature music from the Missisquoi River Band,
free pizza made on site, farmer demonstrations, tastings, tours and educational programs. This will also be the first event in the
Islands for a new Local Motion program; Better By Bike.
Joan Falcao, one of the four owners of Health Hero Farm, joined a group of a dozen residents at a summit held by the Lake
Champlain Island Economic Development Corporation in February 2015 to strategize how the Islands could build on its current
success as a biking destination.
“In addition to longer term ideas to improve our roads and signage and develop a mobile application, our group, led by bike
enthusiast Frank Driscoll, also realized we had an immediate opportunity to build on existing events and facilities,” said Falcao.
“With the help of LCIEDC we reached out to local volunteers and to Local Motion to form an organizing committee, and thanks
to their help and enthusiasm we are adding self-guided local bike tour routes to the festival website and Local Motion will offer
extended hours on the Island Line Bike Ferry.”
In addition to the local foods, music and farm tours offered at the festival, visitors will be able to park at the farm early in
the day to tour the Islands by bike or may park in Airport Park in Colchester. Festival attendees can ride Local Motion’s Island
Line Bike ferry across ‘the Cut’ in the Colchester Causeway for free on Sunday if they are traveling to or from the festival. Rise
VT is offering bike smoothies at the Farm; celebrities have been invited to make the smoothies, as well as anyone who wants
to give it a try. Kids of all ages are encouraged to decorate their bike helmets or purchase reduced cost helmets for youth and
children. They can then take part in a fun bicycle parade around the farm.
Local Motion’s Island Line bike ferry operates 7 days a week until Labor Day and then Fridays and weekends through
Columbus Day. With service from 10 to 6 pm a ride across the Causeway in the middle of the lake, just three miles from
Colchester to South Hero is a highlight of the summer for many families. With more than 12,000 riders in 2014, and nearly 80%
heading north to the Islands, this recreational treasure is proving to be an important transportation corridor and economic
resource since its restoration was completed in 2014. Round-trip fares are $8 for adults, $5 for youth and children ride for free.
For festival attendees on August 30, the entire family can hop on board for free! Go to for itineraries
and other information for cyclists. Go to for information about the Festival.

South Hero Historical
Society Program Needs
Your Help
An early BOO! to all SHHS program attendees to
help you get in the mood to provide us with ideas
for a possible Halloween themed program event
for October 23. Lots of crazy things have gone on
over the years in our quaint little town during the
spookiest time of the year. From the imaginative
pranks by normally highly respected members of our
community to actual ghostly sightings and haunted
houses that were once sweet, peaceful homes before
being taken over by apparitions and the undead,
South Hero has played host to it all. We even had a
very rude but funny giant pumpkin find its way to a
balcony window at the South Hero Inn in the 1970’s
that tossed taunting remarks at Trick-or-Treaters as
they passed below on the street.
We need your help to assemble a grand Halloween
program that is still only in the earliest stages of
creation. If you have outlandish pranks from the past
that you would be willing to share at the program
that night, we want to hear from you. We are also
considering presenting a collection of local spooky
stories told by candlelight, having people attend in
some of their award winning costumes from the past
and maybe sharing a story about how they came to
be and what trouble they might have gotten into
wearing them, a discussion about the outstanding
hosts of Halloween who attracted hundreds of kids
to their homes by offering some of the best candy
in town and having the creepiest decorated houses
and remembrances of the local homemade haunted
houses, dungeons, backyards and forests, This is
the night when the veil between the living and not
so living is very thin, so please offer material that
will not agitate the former and initiate unplanned
intermissions. This will be a fun night for both kids
and adults, so provide your suggestions freely
and offer to be a presenter so that we will have a
program that will be remembered as a part of future
Halloween history!!
If you would like to share a story please call one
of us. We will put together a fun program. Judy Duval
