Eric Slyter and presentation assistant Michael Jones demonstrate a medieval fighting technique during their presentation at the Heppner library last week. -Photo by Andrea Di Salvo nowned in the Middle Ages for its versatility and deadli- ness. The audience was sur- prised to find that the sword was smaller and lighter than they expected—ap- proximately 48 inches in overall length with a grip long enough for both hands, but typically weighing only 2.5 to 3.5 pounds. Slyter and Jones also used their faithful replica weapons to demonstrate the many ways the sword could be used—as a mace, a short spear and even a pole axe— and the two-handed maneu- vering that made it such an accurate weapon. The audience also learned the three guard positions used with the weapon—“ox” (high), “plow” (middle) and “fool” (low). Of course, with a sword comes armor, and the knights also demonstrated what it took to put on the approximately 60 pounds of gear a knight would wear into battle. The armor worn by Slyter and Jones was high-quality replica steel armor to faithfully depict the armor of knights in the late 1300s. The audi- ence learned that, while the mass of the armor was in- deed heavy, the distribution made it easier to carry than the heavy pack of a modern soldier or firefighter. “Though you’d feel it in your shoulders and legs by the end of the day,” Slyter added. At the end of the pre- sentation, young audience members—and a few older ones—had the chance to hold a sword, wear a helmet and look through medieval artifacts. They were also sent away with a copy of the knight’s code of chivalry and that message that, as important as the knightly skills were, the true mea- sure of a knight lay in the heart. Penny’s Puppets to promote summer reading in Ione Penny Walter displays a marionette for a group at the Heppner library earlier this month. The show will come to Ione next Tuesday, July 26, at 11 a.m. at the Ione Public Library. -Photo by Andrea Di Salvo SALEM—The Oregon College Savings Plan is bringing puppeteer Penny Walter back to Morrow County next week. Walter shared her Penny’s Puppets show at the Oregon Trail Library District’s Heppner branch on July 7 and will return to the area for a show at the Ione Public Library on July 26 at 11 a.m. Penny’s Puppets is an “imaginative show that takes the audience on a magical, musical journey packed full of comedy, laughter and audience par- ticipation, blurring the boundaries between fantasy and reality to create a fun, make-believe world where anything can happen and usually does.” The performance is part of this year’s annual summer reading program, On Your Mark, Get Set, Save! The Oregon College Savings Plan is underwrit- ing a series of free special performances in libraries in communities with a popu- lation of 10,000 or less to engage and motivate young readers, while helping these smaller libraries drive traf- fic and encourage summer reading. While at the libraries, parents are encouraged to pick up an entry form for a chance to win a $529 Oregon College Savings Plan account, plus $500 for the winner’s library. To participate, parents must first enroll their children in the 2016 summer read- ing program, then fill out a postage‐paid entry card, available at the library, and drop it in the mail. All entries must be postmarked by Aug. 26 and received by Sept. 1. Visit www.Oregon- CollegeSavings.com for of- ficial rules and prize details.
