Thanksgiving favorites and a huge selection of homemade pies for desert.In 1972, at the age of 16, Kevin Corliss gave his severely alcoholic father a ride to Rutland and never saw him again.“I brought him to a halfway house,” Corliss said Wednesday. “I don’t even remember the name of the house. It was a yellow building. It was up to me to bring him someplace he could be taken care of and not end up in jail, and that was the last time I saw him.”Two months ago, Corliss said, his wife decided to Google her father-in-law and came across the obituary of “Old Jim,” a beloved fixture at the Open Door Mission who died in May.He did not get to see his father again, but Corliss honored his memory Wednesday by volunteering at the Mission’s Thanksgiving dinner.Whatever happened to James Corliss — a Navy veteran who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam — in that unnamed yellow halfway house, he eventually wound up on a Rutland park bench, where James Cassarino found him and brought him to the Mission in 1981.James Corliss suffered from a memory disorder triggered by his alcoholism, but he got sober at the Mission and later that year declared that he wanted to die there. He became the shelter’s cook — initially paid in cigarettes — and was described by successive directors as an invaluable resource.He got his wish in May, dying in the hallway outside his third-floor room, at the age ...

Monday, November 28, 2016

Dr. Arthur Wolk, a beloved Rutland area pediatrician, died Thursday at the age of 97. Wolk took care of thousands of children in his 42-year medical career.Born in 1919, Wolk grew up in Rutland and attended the University of Vermont for undergraduate studies and medical school. During World War II and the Korean War, he served in the US Army Medical Corps. According to his obituary, while practicing in Rutland, Wolk helped start the first day care center in the city in the 1950s. He served as chairman of the Vermont Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, served as president of the medical staff of what is now Rutland Regional Medical Center and was chairman of the Rutland County Medical Society.Bob Hession, a retired pediatrician, worked with Art Wolk for the first 16 years of his practice.

He taught me the importance of rapport with parents and the importa...

Vermont poet Leland Kinsey dies at age 66 - vtdigger.org

Leland Kinsey reads from his latest Green Writers Press collection, “Galvanized,” in Rutland in April. Provided photoYou may have heard the work of Leland Kinsey — long deemed the “unofficial poet laureate of the Northeast Kingdom” — broadcast on public radio’s “The Writer’s Almanac.” But the words of the seventh-generation Vermonter born and raised in a farmhouse without upstairs electricity speak of places unplugged.“Horseshoeing” isn’t about a leisure sport but instead the labor of molding and nailing metal onto a hoof. “Pointing the Chimney,” “Felling the Elm” and “Picking Stone” are just as literal — yet say so much more.“I don’t think you have to have done these things to understand them,” Kinsey said upon publication of his 2014 Green Writers Press collection “Winter Ready.” “I’m writing about the work of preparing for winter, but that can take on wider, deeper connotations. I would hope people would see that these things still exist in this state and recognize this is of the place in which they live.”And that’s what Kinsey continued to convey — even as he endur...
