A. Yes. I really dont think she did it Shes only 19 years old. She cant really have a temper that would do that. I think the mother is somewhat responsible for it. Diane Reed Rutland A. I think it should stand the way it is. She had the option of putting down manslaughter and her lawyers decided to go for all or nothing. Robin Sheldrick . Fair Haven A. No. She was found guilty. If the jury did their job and the lawyers did their job, she shouldnt be set free. Richard Walker Rutland A. No. She was with the kid and she did shake him, according to the evidence that was presented. Frank Francis Rutland M ' 4t J3 A. I should think the appeal process would be a better approach. It should be followed. Charming Greene Wallingford Wheres The Ark? Noah Might Envy Variety of Animals At Hubbards Farm By LAURIE LYNN STRASSER Herald Staff ' When most Rutlanders think farm, cows prohably come to mind. When they hear Hubbard, they probably envision trash men. True, the Hubbard brothers run a solid waste disposal business out of their farm in the shadow of Bald Mountain on Cold River Road. And, yes, theyve got cows 100 head of Holsteins and Jerseys. But they also raise Australian emus, pygmy goats, miniature horses, Eurasian fallow deer, South American llamas, New Zealand red deer, miniature donkeys, blue-shouldered and white peacocks, Canada geese, swans, sheep and Thanksgiving turkeys. The keeper of this international menagerie is 57-yearold Ted R Hubbard Sr. He can hardly wait for spring, when he plans to usher in newborns and add Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs to the mix. There aint a farm around here like this,he said. You name it, we got it. If we aint got it, well -go get it. Some of his animals have commercial value, but to him, theyre mainly a hobby. Red deer antlers, which can grow up to 40 points, fetch as much as $85 a pound if frozen in their velvet and sent to New Zealand, he said. They are crushed for use in arthritis and rheumatism drugs, he said, standing before his prized 11-pointer. God, hes beautiful, Hubbard said. I cant cut his horns. I cant. His 25 emus, huge flightless birds that are indigenous to Australia, are the only feathered birds with all red meat, Hubbard said. It sells for $6 to $12 per pound (See Page 13: Menagerie) &&&t 'it fS) Vi V k Staff Photo by Vyto 8tarinaku Australian emus at the Ted Hubbard farm in Rutland Town check out whats on the other side of the fence at sunset earlier this week. Express Starting to Stop in Fair Haven By BRUCE EDWARDS Herald Staff Starting next week train travelers on the western side of Rutland County will be able to hop on Amtraks Ethan Allen Express a little closer to home. Amtrak will begin daily service to Fair Haven beginning Wednesday, Nov. 12, an Amtrak spokesman said this week. The Ethan Allen Express will stop at Fair Haven each weekday and Saturdays at 1:39 p.m. and arrive at New Yorks Penn Station at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, the train leaves the Fair Haven station on Depot Bead at 4:09 p.m and arrives in New York at 9 p.m The Ethan Allen Express will stop at Fair Haven weekdays and Saturdays at 1:39, p.m. and arrive in New York City at 630 p.m. The schedule for Sunday is 4:09 p.m. and 9 p.m. The one-way adult coach fare is $50 the same fare as Rutland. However, fares will be slightly higher for those who travel on Fridays and Sundays. Amtrak last month began charging higher weekend fares on its Vermont routes. The one-way fare is $55 for passengers traveling between 11 am and 11 p.m on Fridays and Sundays. (There is no fare increase for Saturday travel). For example, someone leaving Rutland or Fair Haven on Friday and returning Sunday, would pay $110 roundtrip.

The talk, however, has turned. Loudspeakers, for example, now announce meetings of the schools new gay-straight alliance. A second support group is gathering at Rutlands Youth Services Center. Petition organizers Kristen Nugent and Patrick Raymond, both seniors, have read of their efforts in USA Today and on the Internet. Vermont ETV has selected them to appear on a live Forum With the Governor next week. We have gotten a lot of congratulations and a lot of support, Raymond said this week. We have gotten some negative dirty looks, crank phone calls, hate mail but weve gotten so much more positive. People are real- , izing this is a problem. , Students presented the petition to staff in hopes of ending homophobic slims at school. We are tired of watching our friends get harassed, the petition said. We are tired of seeing people depressed because they have no one to turn to. We are tired of students going to Rut-1 land High School in fear and we want an end to it." Petition organizers since have addressed the schools 70 faculty members and will do so again next week, Principal Bruce Gee said. The staff has been more cognizant of whats going on, Gee said. The overall response from the student body has been outstanding. Students are a lot more responsive now, which is nice to see and nice to hear. Petition organizers say support sometimes borders on being over-protective, such as when school personnel discouraged posters for the gay-straight alliance out of concern they may be tom down. There have been people who have been worried were going to be the target of things, Raymond said. Students have reported negative reactions from some classmates who stare or whisper in their presence. Raymond, editor-in-chief of the Red and White student newspaper, received one anonymous letter against an editorial he wrote that was reprinted in the Rutland Herald. (See Page 13: Students) Teens Practice Taking Messy Situations and Finding Justice By MARY McKHANN Herald Staff Anna and Sue are high school girls who like the same boy. This has led to some problems between them problems that have escalated to a point that is downright ugly. Anna calls Sue a prostitute; Sue steals Annas chemistry notebook right before an exam Anna steals school stationary and writes puts add between the pages of Annas expensive textbooks. Anna leaves a dead rat in Sues locker with her name tattooed on it; Sue tells people that Anna has AIDS. That was the scenario presented to students Friday afternoon at the Youth for Justice Summit at the Holiday Inn. It was the third such summit ofYouth for Justice, a collaborative method of teaching middle and high school students about the law and the democratic process. Youth for Justice founder Dr. Jean Black-etor, who teaches social studies at Bellows Falls Union High School, asked students how they would resolve Annas and Sues problem during a discussion of mediation and teen court. With the help of Bellows Falls students Marcea Machines, who played Anna, and Marissa Miller, who played Sue, students listened to the seemingly irreconcilable dispute between the two. Other students played friends of the two girls and Bob, the boyfriend, who admitted he was two-timing them both. - After agreeing that there was probably (See Page 13: Justice) Staff Photo by Vyto Starinskas Detective James McLaughlin from Keene, NIL, jumps on a chair to make a point during a Youth for Justice meeting Friday in Rutland. 3 GZmnmti BUFFET BRUNCH Served Every Saturday 1 0AM -2 PM foilll (nioy: Complete Salad Bar Complete SaladBar Fresh Fruit - r Homemade Pastry Chilled Juices if v pen 7CTV Sausage & Bacon Homefried Potatoes Eggs Benedict Fresh Seafood London Broil Grilled Chicken Fresh Pasta Omelets fit Eggs Cooked to Order Hand Carved Roast Beef, Ham & Turkey Complete Dessert Station.
