first_imgVermont Woodworking School Expansion ProjectReceives USDA Grant for Bio-Mass FurnaceThe USDA has awarded Fairfax Woodworking, LLC an energy-efficiency grant to install a bio-mass furnace at its Vermont Woodworking School VWS expansion project. The school is moving from its industrial park location in Colchester to a 15,000 square foot red barn in Fairfax just 4 miles west of Cambridge on Route 104. As part of this expansion, this three-story cattle barn that was being used as a venue to sell books and other thrift items is receiving an energy efficient fit-up and will be a modern shop for woodworking students and residents.Fairfax Woodworking, LLC is managing the renovation project in consultation with Efficiency Vermont and Vermont Department of Historic Preservation. In addition to the bio-mass furnace, the project will use closed cell foam insulation, energy efficient lighting, and radiant heat flooring.In addition to the barn, a farmhouse on the property is also undergoing a renovation respectful of historic integrity and energy efficiency. Sean Knight, a Vermont Woodworking School student has replicated and replaced otherwise decayed intricate, historic moldings on the house. This house will be used as instructor and student housing. Permits are in place to build a dorm on the property in the future.Private space in the shop is available for lease starting January 1, 2009 and offers shared access to larger equipment, the finish room, the upholstery studio and eventually, gallery space. This space is open to woodworkers, furniture-makers and other craftspeople if it is determined to be a good fit.Individuals interested in becoming residents at the new location are encouraged to contact Blake Ewoldsen to discuss possibilities and schedule a tour. Blake can be reached at the woodshop at 802-655-4201 or by e-mailing [email protected](link sends e-mail).

Moore equaliser frustrates Canaries

first_img Substitute Norwich forward Grant Holt was lucky to escape punishment for a nasty challenge on Chico Flores that saw him stamp down on the defender’s shin. Goalkeeper Mark Bunn, back for the home side after serving a one-match ban, lasted only 15 minutes after appearing to injure his groin during a clearance, so Lee Camp stepped off the bench. Only a fine diving save from Michel Vorm denied Turner from close range, but had the shot been struck just a little harder the ball would have evaded the Holland keeper. Touches of class from Jonathan de Guzman and Michu saw the visitors take a deserved lead in the 35th minute. De Guzman weaved a path to the byline and then squeezed a pass between two Norwich defenders to the feet of Michu who rifled the ball into the roof of the net with his first touch. Nathan Dyer could have made it 2-0 a moment later and Swansea lamented the miss in the 40th minute when Norwich equalised. The visitors were caught on the counter with Elliott Bennett delivering a pinpoint cross to the far post where Snodgrass produced a successful diving header. Norwich had grown in confidence since Snodgrass’ equaliser and with a little help from some weak defending they took the lead 15 minutes after the interval. A free-kick was despatched to Turner at the far post and the defender, who was unmarked after being allowed to roam free, had the time and space to drive the ball home. With both teams struggling in defence, it was only a matter of time before the next goal arrived and this time it was delivered by Swansea. Angel Rangel’s cross was headed into the path of an unmarked Moore, who buried the chance to grab the point and deny the home side of a much-needed win. Norwich failed to distance themselves from the Barclays Premier League relegation battle after Luke Moore rescued a 2-2 draw for Swansea at Carrow Road. Suicidal defending at both ends contributed to an entertaining afternoon that could have seen either team finish winners, with the most frenzied action unfolding during a roller-coaster second half. Norwich pegged back Michu’s opener with goals from Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner that appeared to have secured three important points, but Moore had the final say 15 minutes from time, denying the Canaries only their third Premier League victory since December. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
