Chocolate Lab Found
My partner and I found a chocolate labrador on Lakeview Road this evening 9/5/16) at 9:40PM. He was a large male, with no collar. We tried to approach him, but he was too skittish.
If anyone is missing a lab or knows of someone who is, the dog was walking fast towards the corner of Lakeview and Lockes village road.
We hope that someone finds him soon.

Wendell Farmers Market
The Wendell Farmers Market (Saturday mornings, Wendell Common, 10-1:00) is a unique, weekly offering of high-quality, home-grown produce, plants, flowers, herbs, syrup and more, conceived in Wendell's inimitable spirit of diversity, generosity, creativity and mutual support. The vendors and practitioners of the Wendell Farmers Market aim to provide healthy, fresh and locally-grown sustenance (and services) to our friends and neighbors as well as other regional visitors to Wendell, especially those who value and are otherwise isolated from other good food sources. As well as fine produce, the Wendell Farmers Market often includes an on site healer/bodyworker, drummers and/or other minstrel musicians. Patrons include food lovers, friends, as well as local neighbors who come not only for the incredible, fresh, (largely organic!) produce, but as well to barter, kibbitz and talk gardening/food with the passionate farmer-teachers, onsite.

The Wendell Farmers Market welcomes other local growers, crafters, musicians and healers to participate, whether as "vendors", consumers, barterers or just to enjoy fellowship and a lovely view from the historic Wendell Common. Stop by and see us, Saturdays 10:00-1:00!

Sugarbush Farm features premium maple syrup crafted by Wendell farmer Bill Facey (who built a post-and-beam sugarhouse in Wendell. Laurel markets his syrup and can usually be seen on Saturdays at the Wendell Farmers Market as well as at the house at 47 Davis Road, off Mormon Hollow Road.

Laughing Dog Farm (of nearby Gill), run by Wendell "ex-pats" Divya Shinn and Dan Botkin, is a five acre, permaculture-inspired market farm, sanctuary and learning site, producing a wide variety of heirloom, seasonal and storage produce (plus herbs, flowers and garlic) to share with neighbors and friends... (CSA shares still available for summer.) 413-863-8696

Sarah Kohler's Joyfarm from New Salem and Caro Rozwell's new CSA will be there too!

1997 Volvo 960 Wagon. $700
1997 Volvo 960 wagon. $700. Runs, but has several issues. Passed inspection last year. Solid body with almost no rust. HUGE back when the seats are down. Good for a contractor, station car, or first car for new driver. Put a tow hitch on this baby and haul that trailer anywhere! There may be several issues with the car, but they can be overcome. Have an open mind, and come take it away.

Get ready to race in the Montague Soapbox Derby on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013!

Visit our website www.MontagueSoapboxDerby.com to sign up for one of the 100 available racing slots. We've kept the advance racer fees at the same rate to make it affordable. Sign up right now! As an incentive, the first 25 racers will get some free derby shwag.

http://montaguesoapb...0&title=Forms++Rules

We are also looking for race day volunteers; please let us know if you can help. We've got t-shirts and other collectibles for volunteers, and will provide refreshments.

Good News For Local Businesses

We are working with many local public access TV stations so we can air the race live on more area cable access stations this year in addition to Montague, including Greenfield, Shelburne, and very likely Bernardston / Northfield and the Deerfield area as well. We can offer some great publicity to the fine local businesses who have sponsored the Derby as well as some new ones. Space is limited, so if you know of a business that would like to be a sponsor, please let us know. All sponsors will not only have a hay-bale banner at the race, but will be mentioned on the air by the announcer, as well as showing up in print on the screen. Don't miss it.

We will also be listing sponsors on our Facebook page as they come aboard. Please check it out, like it, and pass it on.

https://www.facebook.com/MontagueSoapboxDerby

For those of you who participated last year, note that we will have 2 reliable back-up generators to avoid any electrical interruptions. We apologize for last year's long interruption and will conduct intensive public relations to boost attendance.

If you have questions, please visit the website. All will be answered there.

Many thanks!

RAW COWS MILK IN MONTAGUE SURVEY
Howdy,

My name is Devin Hickman. I am starting a small dairy selling 100% grass-fed organic raw cows milk here in Montague. I am trying to gauge community interest for raw milk being available in Montague by conducting a small survey

If you are interested in healthy, great tasting, raw milk from grass-fed pastured cows being available right here in Montague, please take this small survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MTGQSMM

The survey is short, you don't need to register to take the survey, its free, and no demographic or personal information is required. The information will help me to figure if there is a good market for raw milk here in Montague.

Thanks,

- Devin :)

MWW Moves to the Cloud
MWW Moves to the Cloud

Montague WebWorks will be moving its servers to a cloud environment in March

After five years of hosting our websites on a single server (or even a shared server, back in the old days) Mik Muller of Montague WebWorks decided it was time to take the next step in the evolution of Montague WebWorks -- to move up to the cloud.

The big move will start Friday morning, March 15th, and continue through Sunday evening, March 17th. Every website and email we host will move from our existing servers to our new Cloud Servers. There should be no interruption of service, though we ask you to bear with us.

What are Cloud Servers?

Cloud Servers are the same as regular servers, except that a very large number of them are tied together through networking and software to act as a larger, faster single server, that you can then take a "slice" of as a virtual single server.

The main benefit of this is that upgrading to more processing power and storage is literally a mouse-click away, rather than physically cracking a server case open and adding resources to a single box.

This means that, for Montague WebWorks, we will be moving from ONE server that hosts all our websites, our databases, our email server, to TWO cloud servers that will each actually be multiple processors spread across many machines. One of the servers will now be dedicated to only hosting the websites, and the other server will host the databases and the email server.

The plan is to further expand, by the end of the year, to a third cloud server so we can split our databases and email server onto separate machines.

And while we're moving up to two cloud servers, we're also upgrading all the software. Our web hosting server software will get a double upgrade -- from IIS 7 to IIS 8, and from ColdFusion 8 to ColdFusion 10 -- and our email server software will upgrade from SmarterMail 8 to Smartermail 11, which has major improvements for mobile devices.

What's the Bottom Line

The bottom line is that everything will become faster. This website will load faster, and if we also host your email, your email will send and arrive faster, and the webmail interface will run faster, and on all your mobile devices.

Montague WebWorks is moving up, and expanding. By the end of April we should have around 150 RocketFusion websites, with a goal of 200 by the end of the year.

If you're ready to switch your website over to Montague WebWorks, please call Mik at (413) 320-5336. We can get started early next week.

Kellers commune talk
From the Friends of the Wendell Free Library:

Local Political Communes of the 1960s: a multimedia talk by Dan & Nina Keller
Friday April 20, 7pm (followed by Q&A, refreshments and social) at the Wendell Free Library

The Sixties, remembered as a decade of social change and turmoil (the Civil Rights Movement, assassinations of national leaders, the Vietnam War,) also saw widespread experiments in “back to the land” communal living. Many such communes or “intentional communities” existed in our local area.
Dan and Nina Keller will discuss the history and influence of such local communities with a focus on two where they were members: the Montague Farm, from which the alternative media Liberation News Service operated and Jimmy's Popcorn, which Dan founded in Wendell. Using a selection of books about the Montague Farm and documentary film footage taken by Dan and others, they will reflect upon how these communities extend a long utopian tradition in Massachusetts. In discussion afterwards we can compare this history to current local agricultural and protest movements.
Refreshments will be served after the program to continue the discussion and reminiscence.

Dan Keller, documentary film maker and organic farmer, also a long-time member of the Wendell Selectboard.
Nina Keller, educator, organic farmer, writer, political and NO NUKES activist, has been farming in Montague and Wendell for 43 years.
