DRUG REHABILITATION IN ST. JOHNSBURY
Jason Goguen, representing BAART (Behavioral Health Services) told St. Johnsbury Rotarians how the program provides drug treatment and rehabilitation services to the area. BAART has 22 clinics nationwide, with three in Vermont -- Newport, Berlin and St. Johnsbury. Jason, who is a graduate of St. Johnsbury Academy, started working for BAART in May of 2014 and he is already having an impact. The clinic, now located on Portland Street in St. Johnsbury, is moving June 1 to Hospital Hill, across the street from the Beth El Synagogue. BAART's clientele has grown, from 75 clients to 250 clients and the wait list has been reduced, substantially, to 40. The goal is to have no wait list once the move has completed. Jason has added three additional counselors (renting additional temporary space). About 75 percent of the BAART clients are dealing with prescription pain killers; about 25 percent are dealing with heroin addictions. BAART's process is to first do an assessment (blood work, etc). Once that's done, it is determined what treatment (meds) work best and then start the first 90-day process -- coming to BAART every day (7 days a week) for 90 days. But the process can be much longer (years). BAART offers a very structured program that appears to meet those looking to come clean. Jason commented that Vermont has a larger problem than other states, but Gov. Shumlin has made it a priority and that has given Vermont more press. BAART has a proven history of experience, and a philosophy of treating clients with respect. Jason expects that a year from now, they will have 400 clients in treatment, with another 400 in the community that do not seek treatment. For more information, go to BAART's website, www.baartprograms.com.

Hidden Worlds By Bill Amos: Beneath the Surface
When I was a child, I swam as a child, but when I became a boy, I put away childish things, took a pair of wooden eye-socket goggles, and dove beneath the ocean's surface near Aburatsubo, Japan. For me the world would never be the same again. I believed then, as I do now, that the greatest wonders are underwater. This is where life began, where it grew slowly and simply for a couple of billion years until it exploded in rich diversity about 500 million years ago, finally emerging onto land late in the earth's history. The oceans are still where the greatest profusion and variety of life forms are found today.

Rotary Hears About Relay For Life
St. Johnsbury Rotarian Katheryn Laferriere introduces her husband, Fred Laferriere, director of the annual Relay for Life-Caledonia County event that takes place in June as a means to raise funds to battle cancer. Fred spoke about the reasons he started his quest to eliminate cancer, beginning with losing his brother to the disease. He also has an employee at his business, (Mayo's Furniture), whose son has had his third recurrence of cancer. At this point, hope comes from medical research and trials. Rely for Life, celebrating it's 11th year in Caledonia County, has a different format this year. It will not run all night, but will begin at noon on June 6 at the St. Johnsbury Academy track field and run until midnight. Gates will open at 10 a.m., with the running hour going from 2 to 3 p.m. The survivor care reception is 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the St. Johnsbury Academy Field House, the survivors lap is at 3 p.m. The theme is year-round holidays. Fred also coordinates the Willoughby Dip, which takes place every year on New Year's Day. This year it raised over $15,000. Caledonia County Relay for Life is the second largest in the state. On a per capita comparison, the event is in the top 10 in the country. The American Cancer Society gives the State of Vermont more funding than what is raised in the state. Fred started the first Relay for Life in Caledonia County saying "if we raise $50,000, 'I'll shave my head'." The first event raised $120,000. The best years were before the Great Recession when $240,000 was raised. Fred's goal this year is $200,000.

Superintendent Addresses Rotary Club
At the April 1st meeting of the Littleton Rotary Club, School Administrative Unit 35 Superintendent Pierre Couture highlighted several current education topics including NH Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the national Smarter Balanced Assessment and NH school adequacy aide. He noted that the Common Core standards are optional but represent a drive to get kids to catch up on their math and English skills. They were established as a single set of clear educational expectations for English language arts/literacy and mathematics that states can share and adopt if they so choose. He commented that CCS Standards do not tell teachers how to teach, but provide a kindergarten through 12th grade roadmap for what students should know and be able to demonstrate. It remains up to each local school district to design curriculum to help their students successfully achieve the standards.

Climbing At Rotary
At the April 15th meeting of the Littleton Rotary Club, Rusty Talbot observed that as soon as they can walk, kids want to climb things. As a passionate climber and founder of the North Country Climbing Center (N3C), he might be right. Indeed, many adults feel like climbing the walls, especially after a long cold winter. To safely take on that challenge, N3C offers professional instruction in scaling things. But bear in mind that the climbing gym complex goes way beyond "walls" with more than 6,000 square feet of varied terrain for all ages and abilities. Part of that landscape allows roped climbing up to an exhilarating four stories high. According to Talbot, climbing enthusiasts travel to the area to enjoy the Eastern Mountains and some of the best venues for the sport. And yet, there is only a small local community of climbers. From his perspective, this is like living in Aspen and never trying to ski. Climbing is fun, challenging and exciting for everyone because, while it requires physical strength, it involves just as much mental problem solving, only in three dimensions. Rusty (center) enjoyed lunch with Rotarians Denise Crowley and Kevin Low.
