2016 Habitat Stamp Promotes Land


Conservation in Vermont

Central Vermont Water Quality Outreach


Project Underway

Through a grant provided from the Vermont


Department of Environmental Conservation
(DEC), Central Vermont Regional Planning
Commission (CVRPC) has launched a multipronged outreach effort focused on improving water quality in compliance with the
Vermont Clean Water Act (VCWA).
CVRPC will work with municipal officials
to provide information about the requirements triggered by the VCWA. CVRPC can
also work on options such as stronger municipal protections against flood hazards, river
corridor erosion, stormwater master planning,
and other town plan or zoning changes that
will improve water quality. CVRPC staff can
update fluvial erosion hazard/river corridor
maps and assist with compiling existing infor

mation to use in implementation plans for the


municipal roads stormwater general permit.
CVRPC provides planning and technical
assistance in the areas of community development, transportation, agriculture, natural
resources, housing, economic development,
and emergency management to 20 municipalities in Washington County and 3 in
Orange County. The collaboration among
CVRPC, the municipalities, and other agencies results in the development and implementation of plans that support sustainable
development and improve the Regions environment and quality of life. For more information about CVRPC, please visit centralvtplanning.org.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife


Department is encouraging
people to include the
2016 Vermont Habitat
Stamp among their
year-end donations.
The $15 stamp is available on the Fish &
Wildlife Departments
website and is also available as a voluntary add-on to
2016 hunting or fishing licenses
when purchased online at vtfishandwildlife.com.
The Habitat Stamp was introduced in
Vermont in 2015 and has received widespread
support, raising more than $30,000 in direct
donations in its initial months. Because the
funds can be used to leverage federal dollars,
the program may bring over $100,000 to
habitat conservation in Vermont.
We want to thank everyone who bought a
Habitat Stamp in its first season, said Louis
Porter, commissioner of the Vermont Fish &
Wildlife Department. We were deeply gratified by the support we received from people
who care about saving wild spaces in Vermont.
Due in part to these generous donations, the
department celebrated the grand opening of
newly conserved lands at Lemon Fair Wildlife
Management Area in Addison County this
fall.
Fashioned after the successful federal Duck
Stamp, the Habitat Stamp is priced at $15, but
donors can give any amount from $5 to $500.

Gov. Shumlin Launches Website Dedicated


to State of the State Address

Gov. Peter Shumlin has launched a website


dedicated to the State of the State Address
that he will deliver on January 7, 2016. The
website
can
be
found
at
www.2016stateofthestate.com.
The site currently features information on
the Governors five previous addresses to the
legislature and statistics about the significant
progress Vermont has made since Governor
Shumlin came to office in January 2011.
Together, we have moved Vermont forward by growing jobs and economic opportunity, rebuilding Vermonts infrastructure,

enhancing Vermonts education system,


reforming Vermonts criminal justice system,
creating a cleaner energy economy, expanding access to health care while controlling
costs, and much more, Gov. Shumlin said. I
am so proud of the progress Vermont had
made in the last five years. We live in a truly
great state. I look forward to outlining an
agenda that will make it even greater.
The site will be updated in the coming
weeks with information about the Governors
agenda for 2016.

The stamp comes in the mail


as a sticker, in addition to
being printed directly on
hunting or fishing
licenses.
Thanks to the
Habitat Stamp, our
continuing efforts to
conserve critical habitat
throughout Vermont will
receive an important push in
2016, said Porter. For example, the department anticipates using
Habitat Stamp funds to create a brand new
wildlife management area by the Clyde River
in the Northeast Kingdom. Conserving these
lands will protect essential wetlands and riverbank habitat along one of Vermonts truly
scenic and premier salmon and trout rivers.
The Clyde River wetlands are home to
moose, bald eagles, river otters, and ducks
and geese. The department is also looking to
use Habitat Stamp funds to hire staff to work
directly on habitat management efforts
throughout the state.
The Fish & Wildlife Department is
uniquely positioned to conserve habitat in
Vermont because we can leverage every dollar donated for nearly three dollars in federal
funds, said Porter. Even a small donation
makes a big difference for habitat conservation and management. As forests and fields in
Vermont yield to development, the Habitat
Stamp will allow us to continue to protect the
critical open spaces that Vermonters enjoy.

North Branch Nature Center Announces Lecture and Slide Show Series

The North Branch Nature Center will continue for the twelfth straight year its popular
public program series, Naturalist Journeys,
by offering five Friday evening presentations
in January, February and March at the
Unitarian Church on Main Street in
Montpelier. These exciting programs will
explore natural places in Vermont and around
the world with scientists, authors, and photographers who share stories, images and
insights from their travels and discoveries.
The programs begin at 7 p.m. on Friday,
January 8, January 22, February 12, February
26, and March 4.
Starting off the series is Dartmouth
College Anthropology Professor Jeremy
DeSilva. DeSilva has been working on fossils discovered in 2013, by six women scientists who squeezed through the twisting
passages of Rising Star cave, in South
Africa. This collection of ancient human

bones the largest ever discovered on the


continent of Africa represents at least 15
individuals from a new species of early
human named Homo naledi.
On January 22, well be transported back
to U.S. with Montpelier residents Bryan
Pfeiffer and Ruth Einstein with a presentation
titled, Naked in the Canyon. For those of you
who enjoyed last years Naked in Norway,
Bryan and Ruth will bare all in tales of rock
and river, of wildlife and wild walking in the
Grand Canyon. On this journey through a billion years of the Earths history, you will see
oceans rise and recede, a desert turn to stone,
and the continents largest bird return from
the dead.
Next on February 12, we will be taken on
a photographic exploration, Polar Bear
Wonderland, with local naturalist and expedition leader Sean Beckett. Sean will take
us on a journey to the frigid shores of

Hudson Bay, where for six restless weeks


each fall, hundreds of the Earths largest
terrestrial predators converge. A study of
the ecology, culture, and the uncertain
future of the King of the Arctic will conclude the evening.
To continue the series, February 26, Finding
Abbey: The Search for Edward Abbey and
His Hidden Desert Grave, a novel, presented
by Vermont author Sean Prentiss, will explore
and discuss his journey in search of Abbeys
grave, and how this lead him to understand
that the discovery was not just about a hidden
desert grave but also about unraveling the
greater mystery of home.
Finishing up the series, on March 4, shark
biologist, Lindsay Graff, will take us all
over the world, In Search of Sharks from
Bull Sharks in Fiji to Great White Sharks in
South Africa. Her research has given her a
very personal perspective on these misun-

derstood marine creatures and the challenges


that come with conserving their diminishing
populations.
Along with the many donors to the North
Branch Nature Center, the Naturalist
Journeys lecture series is supported generously by Capitol Copy, Union Mutual of
Vermont Companies, Paul Hanlon, Attorney
at Law, and Auto Craftsmen. Donations are
welcomed at the door.
The North Branch Nature Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing
quality environmental education for children
and adults through hands-on encounters with
nature and first-hand accounts of the natural
world. The Nature Center is located at 713
Elm Street (Route 12) two miles north of
downtown Montpelier. For a list of programs

The Gary Home Assisted Living residents and staff in Montpelier had a wonderful holiday season and would like to express their gratitude
for all the lovely folks who came to share holiday cheer. Carolers included U-32 students, New School students, Kiwanis members, and
the Montpelier Baptist Church. We were also delighted when Union School students came to perform a program of singing and dancing
- many thanks to Samantha Funk, music teacher at Union Elementary, and teachers Linda Beaupre and Dena Cody for bringing their
students to us. Thanks also for the Montpelier City Band (pictured) sharing its beautiful and fun music. Thank you to Sharon Pines class
from Union School, our regular once-a-month visitors, who danced and sang and brought adorable handmade snowmen for each resident, perfect for hanging on a door or wall. We are also grateful for special time with Rev. Paul from the Episcopal Church and Fr. Mike
from the Catholic Church. The residents and staff feel very blessed for this outpouring of holiday cheer and reflection. If we have missed
anyone, our deepest apologies and know that you were greatly appreciated!

Did you know?

Research indicates that people who laugh a lot are much


healthier and may live longer than those who dont find
time to chuckle. A good, deep belly laugh can provide
your body and mind with a great workout. Dr. Lee Berk at
the Loma Linda School of Public Health in California
found that laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and
strengthens the immune system. The organization Laughter
Works, which teaches people how and why to laugh, says
laughter can cause blood pressure to drop, blood to
become oxygenated and endorphins to kick in, which can
improve mood. And thats just the beginning. Laughing
can help reduce stress and promote stronger relationships
between people who laugh together. Data indicates children around the age of six laugh the most, laughing
roughly 300 times per day, while adults average only 15 to
100 laughs per day.

Minimum Wage Increases to $9.60

Vermonts minimum wage increased from


$9.15 to $9.60 on January 1st thanks to legislation Gov. Peter Shumlin signed to raise the
wage each year until it reaches $10.50 in 2018.
The legislation signed by the Governor in
June 2014 raised the minimum wage from
$8.73 to $9.15 in 2015. After rising to $9.60
in 2016, the wage will increase to $10 in 2017
and $10.50 in 2018. It will be indexed to
inflation in subsequent years. Vermont was
one of the first to answer President Obamas
call for states to bypass Congress and raise
the minimum wage. Vermont has one of the

pollution prevention, resource conservation,


and solid waste management. She lives in
Montpelier.
Janice St. Onge, Deputy Director at the
Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund and President
of the Flexible Capital Fund (Flex Fund) has
been named to the Vermont Department of
Public Service Clean Energy Development
Fund Board. The board is responsible for
promoting the development and deployment
of cost-effective and environmentally-sustainable electric power, thermal energy, or
geothermal resources available for the long
term benefit of Vermonters.
St. Onge manages the $4 million Flex Fund
that provides flexible risk capital to Vermont
growth-stage companies in value added agriculture, forestry and clean/renewable energy
sectors. She serves on the Vermont Small
Business Development Center Advisory
Board, the Energy Action Networks Capital
Mobilization Work Group, and is a member
of the State of Vermont Community Economic
Development Strategy (CEDS) Committee.
She resides in Stowe.

The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund (VSJF)


is a non-profit organization created by the
State of Vermont to help develop Vermonts
sustainable agriculture, renewable energy,
and forest product market sectors. Executive
Director, Ellen Kahler, announces the following appointments.
Andrea Cohen has been named to the VSJF
Board of Directors. Cohen currently serves as
Manager of Government Affairs and Member
Relations for Vermont Electric Cooperative in
Johnson, Vermont. Previously she was Public
Policy Manager (2006-2010), and then
Executive Director (2010-2015), for Vermont
Businesses for Social Responsibility
(VBSR).
Cohen led the effort in 2009 to create the
Farm to Plate Investment Program which
arose out of VBSRs public policy committee
work. The legislation tasked the Vermont
Sustainable Jobs Fund with the development
of the Vermont to Plate food system plan and
is now in its fifth year of implementation.
Before joining VBSR, Cohen worked for
16 years at the Vermont Agency of Natural
Resources in a variety of positions involving

highest minimum wages in America.


The increase in the minimum wage has
corresponded with strong job growth from
Vermont employers. According to the Vermont
Department of Labor, since the law went into
effect a year ago Vermont employers have
added 3,200 jobs.
I was proud to sign this law and I am
pleased to see the minimum wage rise once
again next year, Gov. Shumlin said. Giving
a boost to hard working Vermonters is not
only the right thing to do; it is also good for
our economy as a whole.

Beetlemania: One Professors Tale of the


Carabidae of Vermont and New Hampshire

Author and entomologist


Ross T. Bell left no stone
unturned during his lifetime
of research on the 495 species of ground beetles in
Vermont and New Hampshire.
Bell and his wife, Joyce Bell,
are the worlds leading
experts on the carabid tribe
Rhysodini, the Wrinkled
Bark Beetles, and have
described over three quarters
of the worlds 360 species.
Ross Bells newest work,
Carabidae of Vermont and
New Hampshire, is an indispensable resource to anyone
interested the habitat and distribution of all
carabid beetles in New England or in the
broader ecology of where these beetles are
found.
As a Professor Emeritus of the University
of Vermont, Bells influence reaches far
beyond the covers of his book. During his
tenure at UVM, Bells entomology students
found endless expertise and inspiration in his
teaching style that peppered the academic
study of natural history with memorable
anecdotes of his time in field. Former student
Jessica Rykken, now a research associate at
the Museum of Comparative Zoology at
Harvard University, said, Ross told us about
a thousand amazing stories about insects,
played us records of singing insects, took us
out to interesting places to catch insects, and
sat down patiently with us to work through
insect keys. His knowledge and passion and
enthusiasm were really what set me down the
road to wanting to become an entomologist.

The next year, with Rosss help,


I ended up collecting almost
10,000 carabids in the Green
Mountains for my final project.
I couldnt turn back.
Carabidae of Vermont and
New Hampshire contains a
wealth of biological and distributional information on ground
beetles, expanding on currently
available data with new state
records and confirmation of historical catalogue records that
were in doubt. The books introduction discusses topography,
mountains, wetlands, vegetation, soils, life zones, and biophysical regions of Vermont and New
Hampshire. The main text follows with brief
tribal and generic summaries and individual
accounts of the 495 carabid species known
from the two states. Each species account
includes general range, local range, habitat,
life cycle, behavior and dynamics. Occurrence
dot maps were compiled for each species
from the authors records and digitized by the
Vermont Atlas of Life project at the Vermont
Center for Ecostudies.
Publication of this book was supported by
the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks
and Recreation, Vermont Monitoring
Cooperative, Vermont Center for Ecostudies,
Vermont Entomological Society, and the
Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Vermont Bear Hunters Had a


Successful and Safe Season in 2015

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reports that bear


hunters in Vermont had a safe and successful hunting season
in 2015. Preliminary numbers show that hunters took 669
black bears during the 83 days of the two-part early bear
season and late bear season. There were also no huntingrelated shooting incidents.
Fish & Wildlife Department bear biologist Forrest
Hammond says this is a higher harvest than the past 10-year
average of 502 bears taken annually, but it is consistent with
a statewide goal of stabilizing the bear population between
4,500 and 6,000 bears.
Nearly equal numbers of bears were harvested during the
early and late bear seasons, said Hammond. Warmer than
average hunting conditions, a lack of heavy snow cover and
an abundance of wild apples along with some beech nuts
caused many bears to delay entering their dens, which in turn
allowed for more bears than normal to be taken at the end of
the late bear season.
A lack of substantial snowfall also is believed responsible
for the many reports from the public of bears visiting bird
feeders and garbage at a time of year when they would normally be in their dens. Hammond says the recent snowstorm
should cause most bears to begin their winter sleep, making it
possible for people to begin feeding birds.
Hammond also noted that participation in the early bear
season has remained high with large numbers of hunters
choosing to purchase a $5 early season bear tag. Between an
abundant population, a long hunting season and the potential
of harvesting delicious and nutritious bear meat, Vermonters
and visitors are becoming increasingly interested in hunting
this big game animal, said Hammond.

24-Hour Backcountry Race to be


Held at Bolton Valley

Bolton Valley Resort has partnered with outdoor adventure


company Native Endurance to host New Englands first
24-hour backcountry ski and splitboard race on March 19-20,
2016 to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. Competitors
will test their stamina as they try to log as many vertical feet
as possible in a 24-hour period on two challenging loops.
We know this will be one of the most demanding and
rewarding winter events of the year, says Native Endurance
race director RJ Thompson. We also know that not everyone
wants to be outside for 24 hours straight, so we added the
relay and 12-hour division to bring in more members of the
backcountry community and to make sure everyone is having fun.
Jonathan Shefftz of the NE Rando Race Series echoed the
events unique appeal. Its the first ever anywhere in New
England, and its the only 24-hour up/down ski race in North
America after the discontinuation many years ago of the very
popular Sunlight, CO race.
Leading up to the race, competitors will be raising money
for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, a non-profit organization committed to empowering individuals with disabilities.
100% of all fundraising is going directly to Vermont
Adaptive, Thompson said. The organization does incredible
work for amazing individuals, and we are humbled by their
passion to ensure everyone can enjoy the great outdoors.
Josh Arneson, VP of marketing and sales at Bolton Valley
is looking forward to hosting the race. Weve seen an
increased interest in backcountry skiing over the past several
years. This event will highlight, in a very unique way, the
tremendous amount of backcountry terrain that Bolton has to
offer.

Protect Your Familys Health:


Radon A Silent Killer

Did you know that long term exposure to radon gas is the
number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers? CriteriumLalancette Engineers is working with the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) in a nationwide campaign to educate Americans about the dangers of radon exposure and to
encourage them to take action to protect their homes and
families.
Radon is an odorless, tasteless, colorless, radioactive gas
that is responsible for approximately 21,000 deaths every
year. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates
radon is present at elevated levels in about one in eight homes
in Vermont and one in three homes in New Hampshire.
However, says Richard Lalancette, President of CriteriumLalancette Engineers, because you cant see or smell radon,
people tend to downplay the risk and ignore the possibility
that there might be a silent killer in their home.
Any building can have radon: new or old buildings, wellsealed or drafty buildings, and buildings with or without a
basement. An elevated radon level is easy to fix, but the only
way to know if a building needs to be fixed is to test. Radon
testing is simple and inexpensive. Radon test kits can be
obtained through the State of Vermont Department of Health,
at your local hardware store, or through a certified lab. You
can also hire a certified radon measurement provider to test
your home. If discovered, a radon problem can be fixed by a
certified Radon Mitigator for a cost similar to that of many
common home repairs.
January is National Radon Action Month. Criterium-Lalancette
Engineers urges Vermont and New Hampshire residents to take
action by testing their homes for radon. Protect your family from
this silent killer. For more information on radon, log onto www.
epa.gov/radon, www.criterium-lalancette.com/radon-and-waterfact-sheet, or call Criterium-Lalancette Engineers at 1-800-6394535. Test. Fix. Save a life.

Installations by Elizabeth

The Vermont Governors gallery will be kicking off the


New Year with the exceptional artistic duo of Elizabeth
Billings and Michael Sacca. Billings will display her sitespecific installations inspired by the elements of nature and
technology, and Saccas exhibit of detailed photographic
images marries the two disciplines conceptually. All materials
and images were gathered and created Close to Home in
and around Tunbridge, Vermont.
We have spent years developing and honing our varied
artistic techniques making visible our connection with nature.
Having the singular focus of the watershed from two quite
different artistic disciplines is both intriguing and challenging. A collaborative site invites conversations to take place
reflecting on the new body of work. This creates the potential
to move our individual explorations more quickly and
intensely. We believe taking this personal risk enlivens the
work and allows for new creative paths. Elizabeth
Billings
Elizabeth and Michaels work transforms the Governors
Gallery with an installation that allows the viewer to virtually
appreciate the feeling, movement, light, and spirit that inhabit our natural environment. Their exhibit powerfully conveys
all this and more within a fairly intimate space. Its not to be
missed, David Schutz, Vermont State Curator, said.

Vermont Supreme Court


Gallery Hosts Portrait
Artist Kate Gridley

The Vermont Supreme Court Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Kate Gridley titled Passing ThroughPortraits of
Emerging Adults.
Gridley is known for her fresh insights into human character, the quality of light in her work, and an exceptional painting technique not seen in most contemporary portraiture
today. This Middlebury-based artist seeks to capture a time of
our youth culture that transcends socioeconomic background,
gender, and race.
This collection of 17 larger than life-sized oil portraits
depicts the human element of every subject in an authentic
and compelling way. Each portrait is accompanied by an
audio narrative that is accessible by cell phone with a QR
code app. This application gives the viewer a candid insight
into the life and personality of every one of her subjects.
Kate Gridley is perhaps Vermonts finest portraitist, and
what this show accomplishes is nothing short of revolutionary
allowing the viewer to fully appreciate the promise of youth
and how a portrait can truly reveal the inner character of a
person, David Schutz, Vermont State Curator, said.
Kate Gridleys portraits and landscapes are displayed in
public and private collections here and abroad. She completed
the official state portrait of the Honorable Governor Jim
Douglas of Vermont in 2010. It hangs in the Vermont
Statehouse, and the official portrait of the Honorable William
K. Sessions lll in 2012, hangs in the Thurgood Marshall
Federal Judiciary Building, Washington D.C.
Gridleys exhibition Passing Through: Portraits of
Emerging Adults, will be traveling throughout New England
from now until the end of 2016. Please visit her web site for
dates and locations.
Currently she is at work on a multi-media portrait of Dr.
Francois Clemmons, partially funded by a Vermont Arts
Council 2013 Creation Grant.

Star Wars Episode VII:


The Force Awakens
HHH

SUPER CROSSWORD

The WORLD

January 6, 2016

I dont think JJ Abrams is a good filmmaker. I didnt have


high expectations for the new Star Wars movie. But of course
I saw it, anyway. My mind was made up in 2005.
In 2005, George Lucas proved that it is possible to make a
great new Star Wars film. Revenge of the Sith is magnificent: dark, intense, and uncompromising.
Sith explored the character Obi-Wan Kenobi: a fanatically dedicated jedi who happily died for his cause after living 20 years as a desert hermit. Sith explored the character
Yoda: a flawless monk who is equally at home in a swamp
hovel as he was when he was a leader of the galaxy.
Finally, the film blew me away by transforming the evil
villain Emperor Palpatine into a believable character. At the
end of Sith, we finally understood how a relentlessly ambitious Senator rose to the heights of power with a combination
of deception, political savvy, and utilization of the dark side
of the force. As soon as Hillary Clinton saw Revenge of the
Sith, she decided to run for President.
The Force Awakens does not have any great characters.
The new heroes are perfectly likable but bland. And the villains are disappointing.
Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader are the one and two
coolest bad guys in the history of cinema. In contrast, Rylo
Ken (Adam Driver) is a mopey emo kid with a lightsaber.
[Spoiler Alert] However, were supposed to believe that
young Rylo Ken is second in command in the powerful military group The First Order. As the film begins, The First Or-

der is poised to annihilate the Republic, crush Princess Leias


Resistance, and take control of the galaxy.
But with Rylo Ken at the helm, Im just not buying it. He
seems slightly less trustworthy and manly than the character
Adam Driver plays on the HBO show Girls.
JJ Abrams expects us to believe that The First Order
has the tax base and the know-how to afford an armada of
souped-up starships and a planet-sized super weapon but
they are dumb enough to hire Lena Dunhams flaky boyfriend to lead them.
Sorry, folks. Im a cantankerous old Star Wars nerd. Im
sure JJ Abrams was aware that when he made a new Star
Wars movie that guys like me would compare it unfavorably to the five great films that came before it (The Phantom
Menace stinks).
Mostly, though, The Force Awakens is a success. It is
entertaining from start to finish. Its beautifully shot. And the
climax is emotionally satisfying.
The Force Awakens doesnt hold a candle to Revenge
of the Sith, let alone The Empire Strikes Back. But everybody likes it. And thats impressive.

Reuse and Recycling: CVSWMD Facility Planning

By Cassandra Hemenway
For a year, the CVSWMD Board and staff have been in a
planning process, seeking ways to best meet mandates
imposed on municipalities by Act 148 and the Vermont
Materials Management Plan. Permanent and ad hoc committees have nearly completed work on the project and we have
begun actively inviting public opinion. However, the proverbial train has not yet left the station.
It has not been clear to many people that CVSWMD is still
in a planning process, which includes ample room for public
input.
Questions abound about CVSWMDs plans for a $1.5 million, 8,500 square foot facility alongside a tornado-, floodand hurricane-proof household hazardous waste trailer. The
plan includes a hub and spoke approach, in which collections of hard-to-recycle materials will be held in rural towns
and aggregated at the hub or main facility.
Busting at the seams in our current space, coupled with
prolonged searches for rental property, inspired us to consider
a facility designed for our zero waste programming: including
collecting hard to recycle materials, food scrap hauling,
school programming, and providing composting equipment
at-cost. Staff and board members have been agonizing about
how to address the need for a facility that can house our programs, provide possibility for expansion in order to meet
unfunded state mandates, and enable programming residents
regularly tell us they want, such as year-round hazardous
waste collection.
All municipalities have to weigh public benefit with cost.
In this case, board members participating in planning see a
new facility as prudent investment in foundational infrastructure, without which we are severely constrained as to services
we can offer.
Two facility-related board actions have been taken thus far.
First, the board voted to increase the per capita rate (one of the
districts funding mechanisms) from $1 to $2 in order to make
bond payments, should voters approve it. A provision was
included: if a bond vote fails, the per capita goes back to $1,
and extra funds collected return to towns.
District charter requires the board to set the per capita rate
on or before December 15 each year. This allows member
towns to plan their budgets. Setting the per capita enables
CVSWMD to proceed with plans, or return funds if voters do
not support a bond.
The second facility-related board action was approval of a
draft facility business plan. There are many reasons CVSWMD
is planning for a facility. First, a little history:
For four years, CVSWMD kept the per capita at $1 while
persistently seeking revenues other than taxes. For example,
the district has been implementing user-fee increases into its
business organics program so fees better cover the actual cost
of collecting these materials. We have been analyzing items
collected at our Additional Recyclables Collection Center in

order to maximize revenues from sales of materials when possible. Last December, staff wrote and received a USDA Rural
Development Grant for $89,000, which funds outreach to the
districts most rural towns, allowing for better services without added strain on the budget.
I offer this history to put the per capita increase into context. When we did not need revenue generated by the per
capita, we lowered the rate. Now we may need it, so we may
have to break the four-year run of a minimal per capita.
Public Process
CVSWMD has invited public input throughout this process. We held three discussion groups to obtain residents
opinions; in Hardwick, Chelsea, and Montpelier. We provided
participants an overview of possible plans, and sought feedback. We then used that information to help craft a plan better
suited for our residents.
Before setting the FY2017 per capita rate, the District
advertised and held a public hearing. Nobody came to the
hearing. Given the changes being considered we extended the
written comment period, and staff contacted towns to make
sure they knew of the opportunity to comment.
We held a community meeting in East Montpelier to hear
from residents about a potential land purchase there.
CVSWMD staff has also been reaching out to Select Boards
to keep towns updated, and to make sure everyone knows we
desire public participation, and that the train has not left the
station.
The district has recently made an offer on a land purchase,
but the seller has not yet accepted. The offer is currently pending an environmental assessment and independent appraisal.
The CVSWMD continues to explore the best and most cost
effective method of meeting the needs of our members, and
state mandates.
Making an offer on property prior to bonding would benefit
the District and the communities we serve in a variety of
ways. First, CVSWMD can buy land outright because of
careful fiscal planning; using available funds to purchase
property reduces a potential bond and long-term interest
costs. Additionally, ownership of a parcel appropriate for a
facility would make us eligible for state and federal facilityrelated grants, which could offset construction costs. If a bond
vote fails, owning land provides a contingency plan for slow
expansion within the bounds of our existing budget and grant
awards.
CVSWMD welcomes public input. The Board of
Supervisors meets the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30
p.m., except January, July, and August. All District board and
committee meetings are open to the public. Written comments
can be emailed to comments@cvswmd.org or sent by postal
mail to Leesa Stewart, General Manager, 137 Barre St.,
Montpelier VT 05602.

retirement account, it will never be funded with whats left
over when current expenses are all paid.
There is never enough surplus to fund anything meaningful.
The new year is a good time to rebalance and rebudget
expenses. If it also a time of year-end bonuses or pay
increase, it is an ideal time to redouble the commitment to
saving. Consider putting a substantial share of any bonus or
increase toward a more secure future.
Those entering 2016 without an employer-sponsored
retirement vehicle or those who want something additional, can find a tradition or ROTH individual retirement
account useful.
Traditional IRAs allow up to $5,000 in contributions
annually, and contributions are deducted from earned
income, reducing federal and state income tax liability.
A ROTH may be an even more attractive alternative for
younger, entry-level employees. Contribution levels are the
same. In a ROTH, contributions do not reduce current
income, but all withdrawals are tax-free at retirement
amounts many times larger than todays deposits. For those
whose current tax rate is low - whether due to limited
income or substantial deductions, a ROTH may be a better
choice.
There is no better time to save than now. Growth over
time is the key to successfully investing in the future. The
sooner saving starts, the longer it can grow.
Opening an Individual retirement accounts is quick and
easy.
The new year can also serve as a reminder for reviewing
beneficiaries on insurance policies and savings accounts to
make sure they are slated to go where intended.
Although the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce
and other chambers around the state are now barred from
offering medical insurance, they continue to offer some
great insurance products at very attractive group rates.
All of these products are available to employees of chamber members on a voluntary basis. That means that even if
only one or two employees in a workplace of 15 want dental
insurance, they can enroll, and theyll still enjoy the grouprate pricing.
The chamber programs, VACE Insurance, include
Northeast Delta Dental insurance, Colonial Life accident
insurance, and VSP vision insurance. Employees can enroll
in one, two, or all three offerings.
The Chamber board of directors wishes everyone a prosperous New Year.

A Message from Your Very Recent Past


By G. E. Shuman

hen you read this in the paper, you


will learn that you and I, right now,
from both of our perspectives, are actually
in two different times. We arent in two
different time zones, not unless you live
further west than do most of my readers. We are, literally, in
two different times. You see, you, as you live and breathe in
the day in which you exist, right now, are on the other side
of a great divide that separates us; me at this writing, and you
at the reading of it, by that magical millisecond after the ball
drops, the horns blow, and the reworks blast off proclaiming
the beginning of a brand new year.
You see, I am still in the year 2015, as I write these words,
and you are not, as you read them. I am writing on Wednesday, December 30th, 2015, and you are reading this column
next year, from my point of view. I am way back in last
year, to you. Isnt that strange? Okay, so maybe its only me
that is strange. I do have a different way of looking at things
sometimes. I remember hearing a comedian one time, joke
that people always want to see a picture of him when he was
younger. His reply was that EVERY picture ever taken of him
was when he was younger. I guess thats the same concept as
with me, now writing to you from your recent past, isnt it?
Anyway, there you are, way over there on the other side of
the divide, and here I am, still in 2015. From our opposing
viewpoints on things, you can look back at me, imagine me
writing this column, right now, where I am, and, more importantly, WHEN I am, and wonder a few things that people
always wonder about at the time of year you are in. You may
wonder how the year 2015 could have been different, how it
could have been better. You might think of things you did or
didnt do, and decisions you made or didnt make, in this year
that I am still in, as I write. You may be happy that the old year
is in the past; you know, the old Out with old, and in with
the new, idea. But, whatever was done with my still present
year of 2015, its over for you now, and not one thing about it
can be changed. Nothing can be changed in whatever you did,

or didnt do, while you were here with me. I once heard one
of the wisest men of our time, The Reverend Billy Graham,
say about a persons past, that, and I quote him You caint
unscramble eggs. (The I in the word cant is intentional, as
that is how he said it.)
I, on the other hand, look ahead at you, and I mean straight
at you, and wonder about the future. What great things, and
not so great things are YOU going to accomplish in 2016.
What person are you going to vote for and help elect to be
the next President of this great land of ours? What school or
church are you going to attend? What are you really going
to do with those New Years resolutions you made, just last
week? (From your point of view.) (Im lucky, I havent even
decided whether or not I will make a resolution this year
and still have a few more hours left to think about that.) What
changes might you make in your work life, home life, or your
spiritual life in your brand new year? Another sort of paraphrased quote, because I dont know the source, simply says,
If you nd yourself heading in the wrong direction, remember, God allows U-turns. I love that one.
So, I will leave you now. I have to nish up whatever Im
going to do before I join you over on the other side, in that
new calendar year called 2016. Save me a spot over there, if
you would. I hope that you will please remember something
else when you think about what you might do in the coming
weeks, months, and years of that very precious life that you
have been given. It is one more quote, and it is a REALLY
important one: Though no one can go back and make a brand
new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new
ending.- Carl Bard.
So, my friend, you lucky person who is actually living in
my future world of 2016What will YOUR brand new
ending be? Hey, wait for meIll be in 2016 with you before
you know it and in 2017 before you can even comprehend
how quickly that next new year came, and then, how quickly
it went. So I will say: Happy New Year! (Whatever new year
it is.)

promise this is the last time I will


tell you anything about my illness
and episodes. But before I go, I
want to tell you that the best thing that
happened to me since I left the hospital
(which was terrible), was the wonderful women from the visiting nurses of
Washington County Home Health who came to care for me.
I guess I knew about this group prior to having to use them,
but I just didnt know much about them. I cant tell you how
surprised I was at how wonderful they were. I was a little apprehensive when I left the hospital and was told that I needed
to have care at home. And so, Washington County Visiting
Nurses was my choice. The first day that Lynn arrived she
was cheerful, fun, and an absolute professional. But instead
of making me nervous and worried, she made me sure that everything was going to be alright. She told me what to do, and
what not to do. She told me that either she, or one of her associates, would be back soon. And they were, several times a
week until she assured me that I no longer needed their help.
Along with the visiting nurses, I also was able to have a
physical therapist. Again I had been very apprehensive but
I couldnt have been more wrong. Actually, when Danielle
Hampton walked in the door, I knew not only would we get

along, but she would be exactly who I needed. Not only did
she help me, she did so faster than I would have thought possible. She also discharged me and has worked not just with
me, but with a physical therapist in the valley, who has been
able to help me with all the issues that I left the hospital with.
Again, Im not going to tell you about my unforeseen physical issues from this fall. But I want to make sure that you all
know what a fabulous organization that is available to us in
Washington county. They were easy to work with and make
each visit a positive one. I was also given a tablet that spoke to
me at ten oclock. With this interaction, I was able to be sure
that all my vital signs checked out on a daily basis.
Im not sure I should say this, but the home health nurses
and my little tablet gave me much easier care than the stressful
time I spent at the hospital. So dont hesitate to get in touch
with them if needed. I know they made my life easier and I
was able to recover in the comfort of my own home. I am not
back to 100% yet, but I know Im much better. I wish the visiting nurse and the physical therapist were available for longer,
but I realize they are only able to come for a certain amount
of time, but they sure worked for me for the limited amount of
time they could come. I consider myself a very lucky woman
to have had the opportunity to have them see me at all. I hope
you all take the opportunity to heal with them also.

Recently, the Bolton, VT select board voted without the
weigh-in of the conservation committee and a petition presented by residents against trapping on the pristine natural
area of Preston Pond. The select board themselves seemed to
have become entrapped in fear and lack of courage to stand
against a contrary tradition; rather than consider the importance of beavers and their value.
Beavers create micro environments that benefit other wildlife such as fish and blue heron and support essential wetlands. Trapping is indiscriminate and injures or kills other
wildlife or even pets. To quote Albert Schweitzer, The thinking person must oppose all cruel customs no matter how

its fair to say its quite common and understandable to feel somewhat resentful and
angry about assuming responsibility for caring for the people who raised us.
When a family member becomes the caregiver, they inevitably give up their own independent lifestyle to care for their loved one.
We might have the greatest intentions to
begin with, however, over time and as the illness progresses, especially dementia related
illnesses, the caregivers patience and understanding grows thin. Add to that any family
dynamics where one might be at odds with
other family members not helping out, and
its easy to lose respect for the very person we
originally wanted to care for. Some behaviors
brought on by dementia related illnesses may
lead us to wanting to reprimand our loved one
as we would a child, when they no longer
have the ability to even understand the behavior was unacceptable.
It is very important to reach out for support. We are all human and products of the
society we grew up in. Knowing how to care
for someone whose health is failing, especially if the disease is a form of dementia/
Alzheimers, doesnt necessarily come natu-

Happy New Year from Project
Independence! As we begin 2016, please take
a few moments to remind yourself that you
are a wonderful caring person who deserves
the best of everything. Sometimes in our
busy day-to-day lives, we forget to take care
of ourselves and this is a huge mistake! In
order to care for others in our life, first we
have to care for ourselves. Along that line, I
recently had a conversation with someone
who is caring for a family member with
dementia. Her thoughts and insights reflect
some of what caregivers experience while
fulfilling this challenging role.
Thoughts and insights on caring for a
loved one with Alzheimers disease or

dementia
In an attempt to care for our loved ones, as
best we can, we have to consider that we no
longer live in a society (at least in the US)
where family members automatically assume
the responsibility for caring for a failing
elder. By and large, most folks are ready to
move on from the burdens and worries of
raising children at the time our parents are
dealing with failing health. In addition, when
someone has a physical illness, the treatments are more answers on how to treat
them. With dementia, or Alzheimers, each
person is different and the treatments and

Excess Weight
and Colon
Cancer Risk

Gaining extra pounds over the


years may increase your risk of
colon cancer, according to a
recent study. The study
followed more than 48,000
men for 18 years. For every ten
pounds they gained after age
21, their risk of developing
colon cancer went up by 33%.
Men that were the leanest and
within the normal weight range
had the lowest risk. To keep off
extra pounds, be sure to get
regular exercise. Replace highcalorie, high-fat foods with
fruits, vegetables and lean
protein. Drink water instead of
calorie-laden soft drinks.

Laura Montague, of Montpeliers 5th-6th grade team (center, #1 in


green), launches a 15-foot shot over the Northfield defense in last
Saturday mornings game in Northfield. The Montpelier girls (the
Semi-Solons) defeated the Miniature Marauders 22-8. The elementary school game experience is valuable to the youngsters as they
move up the ladder toward one day playing varsity basketball.

TREE

5 Years Old Spayed Female


Short Hair

My name is Tree and I came to CVHS


when a concerned family found me as a
stray in Montpelier. The folks here at CVHS
don't know anything about my previous life
or experiences, but they have learned that I
am a sweet, gentle boy looking for a home
to call my own.
Purrhaps you have a tree I can sleep
under in your home for the holidays?

Visiting Dog Ruins Holidays

DEAR PAWS CORNER: My


sister-in-law insists on bringing her yappy, ill-tempered lap
dog, Mitsi, to our house
every Christmas through New
Years. Mitsi gets along with
no one but her owner, frightens
our two cats and barks at
everyone in the house during
dinner, nonstop. I love having
my brother and his wife over,
but Mitsi is making things hellish. How can I politely ask
her to leave Mitsi in a kennel during visits?
-- Barked Out in Birmingham, Alabama
DEAR BARKED OFF: I dont know that theres a way to
tell your sister-in-law to leave her dog at home that would
be taken well. Mitsi clearly is a full member of their family and travels with her.
Can a compromise be reached instead? Ask her if Mitsi
can be placed in a separate room during mealtimes while
they are visiting. Shell probably still bark, but at least it
wont be right in your ear.
You also need to discuss how Mitsi is stressing out the
cats. Sometimes people think its funny when a visiting
dog chases the family pets around, but its not fun for those
pets. Its like having a schoolyard bully walk right into
your home. Try to keep the discussion civil.
Ultimately, youll have to decide what level of compromise to ask for in order to keep peace in your house, and
youll have to be firm. Your sister-in-law takes her relationship with her dog seriously; she should respect your
concerns as well. That discussion probably wont be comfortable, but if Mitsis barking and bullying are making the
holidays a living hell, you need to say something.

Send your questions or tips to ask@pawscorner.com.

Collector Plates

Q: I have a set of eight collector plates, all featuring


locomotives. Do they have
any value, and where would
I sell them?
-- Steve, Mason City, Iowa
A: There seems to be a glut of collector plates, and selling
them is more than just a little difficult. Almost every
antique mall I visit has stacks of these plates, many in
original boxes and most with so-called certificates of
authenticity. My suggestion is to show them to dealers in
your area to see if there is any interest.
***
Q: I have three Native American baskets that were purchased on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona
during the 1930s. Can you recommend someone who can
help me place a value on them for insurance purposes?
-- Laura, Sierra Vista, Arizona
A: Deborah and Alston Neal are owners of Territorial
Indian Arts & Antiques, a Scottsdale business since 1969.
Alston is the basket expert, and he can help you. This is one
of the better stores dealing in Indian crafts and antiques
that I have found, and it has an international reputation.
Contact is 7077 E. Main Street, No. 7, Scottsdale, AZ
85251; 480-945-5432; www.territorialindianarts.com and
territorialarts@aol.com.
***
Q: I have a collection of about 65 back issues of Readers
Digest from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Are they worth keeping?
-- Sally, Cheyenne, Wyoming
A: Although the issues might be interesting, they dont
seem to be of much interest to magazine collectors. While
other publications from this same period such as Saturday
Evening Post, Colliers, Look and Life are considered quite
collectible, the older issues of Readers Digest sell for only
$2 or $3 depending on condition and content. Based on this
information, only you can determine if your copies are
worth keeping.
***
Q: When I was in grade school during the 1950s, I received
a pack of 12 pencils with the Coca-Cola logo. I got them as
a prize for a spelling contest. Are they rare, and should I
keep them?
-- Carol, Tyler, Texas
A: According to Kovels Antiques and Collectibles Price
Guide by Ralph and Terry Kovel (Krause Books), your
pencils are worth about $30. To a Coca-Cola collector,
perhaps even more.
Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, 628 Virginia Drive,
Orlando, FL 32803, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@

BAD CREDIT FOREVER!
Credit repair companies make
false claims and promises to
erase a trail of unpaid bills
or late payments from your
credit report. However, only
time can erase negative, but
accurate credit information. In
addition, federal law forbids
credit repair companies from
collecting money before they
provide their service. TIP: If
you have questions about
your credit history or you want
to know how to get a free
copy of your credit report call
the ATTORNEY GENERALS
CONSUMER ASSISTANCE
PROGRAM at 1-800-6492424. Dont send any money
to a credit repair company until you check it out.

December Exceedingly Warm and a little Wet

December 2015 will go down as the warmest most snowless end of


any year in recent memory. Statistically it was the warmest across
many stations, including Burlington, Montpelier, and a top Mount
Mansfield where there was ZERO snow at the stake by late afternoon
on December 24th Christmas Eve day.
Predictions were right on track with the main influence being a very
strong west to east zonal flow. This flow brings in already milder Pacific Ocean air unloading its moisture and cold onto the mountain of
the west and warming that air as it continued east. This occurred because of the near record El Nino condition that developed through the
late part of 2015, and also a a very strong polar vortex, which kept arctic air locked up. That combination plus the overall background of a
warming climate (also one reason why there is such a strong El Nino)
contributed to unprecedented warmth where records fell throughout
the eastern portion of the country.
At the E.F. Knapp Barre-Montpelier airport seeing just 6.6 total
inches were accrued which is 30% of normal. Normal snowfall for
December is 21.9 and this was equaled for Mount Mansfield, Vermonts highest mountain! Decembers total snow was 14.0 atop the
mountain at the stake which was just 33% of normal. With a huge
warm temperature anomaly not seen since March 2012 that moved in
just ahead of the Christmas Holiday with a record high of 51 degrees
near the stake, snow depth melted out to zero even without a trace,
also a first happening on Christmas eve December 24th. By December
28th arctic air was released southward and a minimum temperature of
1 above was recorded.
One other important notable was set in Burlington where snowfall
was precious little and that is the high temperatures was 68 degrees
setting a new all time record. Satellite and upper air data also set re-

New Ice Haze Over Earth From Surge in Jet Traffic

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2)Climate


Change, Anthropogenic Global Warming

Scientists say jet contrails, like these over northern California, are
responsible for Earths new ice haze.
A gradual brightening of Earths skies since the 1970s and 1980s is
being linked to an icy haze in the upper atmosphere, brought on by
an expansion of jet air traffic. NOAA scientists announced the phenomenon at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union
in San Francisco. Chuck Long told the gathering that there is strong
circumstantial evidence linking the icy haze to the greater number of
aircraft contrails over the past few decades.
While Long doesnt believe the haze is having a significant effect on
the climate, he says it is an example of accidental geoengineering.
If you look up the definition of geoengineering, it includes largescale manipulation of parts of the climate system or the environment,
and I believe this ice haze from jet traffic does satisfy that requirement, Long told reporters.

What Happens in the Arctic, Doesnt Stay in the

oceans.
This

conjunction with now a colder continent will make for oscillation between warm
and cold, especially with El Nino effects remaining most of this winter.

cords where upper air balloons are released and sound the atmosphere
across New York and Maine.
December was much wetter than the previous months. On Mount
Mansfield 7.78 of total precipitation fell which was 114% of normal.
At the E.F. Knapp Barre-Montpelier airport, this 135% of normal.
The weather pattern change that tapped moisture from the Gulf of
Mexico and pushed this moisture into the Northeast on southwesterly
winds. This also brought over running precipitation and plenty of ice
as snow changed to sleet, freezing rain, and finally rain.

Late December CO2 measurement was 402.60 ppm compared to


one year ago this time measured 398.98 ppm.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements were quickly rising due to
N. hemispheres inability to pull CO2 out of the atmosphere. These
numbers will swell as CO2 continues due to the burning of fossil
fuels through March. A healthy stable climate and sustainable occurs
when these levels are below approx. 350 parts per million with 280
ppm the most desirable.

The American Geophysical Union Fall meeting recently met. Some


of the latest tid-bits of information include a big focus on the arctic.
John Eichelberger of theUniversity of Alaska Fairbanks illustrated
how people from small towns in the Arctic regions, such as Anatuvuk Pass, Alaska,areuseful in matters of climate prediction and in
monitoring howthings are changing in their communities. He posted
some pictures of the small Alaskan town 10 years ago, and compared
it with its current state showing a completely changedlandscape. He
added that its crucial for there tonot only be raw supporting scientific data, but also humanistic approaches with communities in order
tosolve large problems like climate change. For example, in the past
decades the increase in boreal forest fires and floods has not only been
a climatic anomaly, but has affected many communities in the Arctic.
He mentioned, Its not just lives and property, its health and wellbeing.

Earths Climate Sensitivity to Atmospheric CO2 has


been Underestimated

In order to quantify future climate change, scientists need to know


the transient climate response (TCR) and equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS) of Earth. The TCR is the projected global mean surface
temperature changes (up to a century out) in response to doubled atmospheric CO2 concentration. The ECS is similar, but goes out farther in time (many centuries). Researchers from NASA GISS have
determined that previous studies have relied on too simplistic assumptions when accounting for the temperature impacts of climate drivers
other than CO2. One such driver are aerosols.
These simplistic assumptions have resulted in incorrect estimates of
TCR and ECS, according to NASAs Gavin Schmidt, who is also a
co-author of the study. According to the NASA GISS researchers, the
predictions for TCR and ECS have been lower than they should be,
which means that Earths climate sensitivity to atmospheric CO2 has
been underestimated.
Not just Ocean and Atmosphere, Lake Temperatures jumping Upward
The worlds lakes are warming at an alarming rate due to climate
change in a trend scientists say threatens freshwater supplies and ecosystems. A new NASA-funded study found that lakes worldwide are
warming an average of 0.61 degrees Fahrenheit each decade, more
than the oceans and air.

Vermont January Weather Trends

The Polar branch of jet stream is now occasionally active supplying


the Northeast U.S. with occasional bouts of colder air via Canada and
the arctic. This occasional displacement is the result of a weakening
of the polar vortex. Unfortunately it is uncertain we will stay like this
the rest of the winter as the effects of El Nio and the increasingly
very warm sea surface temperatures off the eastern Sea Board will
also be at play.

Here are the latest expectations based on pattern


changes
indicated:

There
could
be
more warm
intrusions
followed by
colder intrusions making for sharp
rises
and
falls in temperature
Snowfall
vs. Rain may
win out most
of the time, but rain means ice and ice means slickness
Conditions may be more changeable this month than last months
steadier warmth and last years dramatically cold weather preserving
the snow pack weather
Expect a little of everything, but overall more of a seasonable temperature trend on balance with near to slightly below snowfall.
El Nino effects will gradually wane setting up perhaps harsher
weather toward the middle to end of this month.
