Last November, Montpelier V.F.W. post members voted to donate $14,000 to the DAV, to cover half the purchase of a new van that was greatly needed. $1,000 of that donation came from Mr. Francis Taft and the Danish Brotherhood. The van normally runs five days a week, transporting local veterans to the VA Hospital in White River Junction, and can accommodate up to five veterans. A second van from Morrisville is also scheduled/coordinated by Don. Do you have some spare time? Volunteer drivers are in great need. Call Don at 229-4571 to learn more about volunteering.

Justin Sell, age 18, of Barre, has been honored with a President’s Volunteer Service Award. The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country, was presented by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of President Barack Obama. Justin participated in the Spirit of Community program this year as a representative of Spaulding High School in Barre, where he is a member of the Class of 2013. Justin earned his award by serving as a camp counselor at Camp Agape, a camp for children who have parents who are incarcerated. He found the experience to be both very challenging, but also very rewarding in that he was able to make a difference in the lives of these children who have to deal with challenging circumstances. This experience was in addition to Justin’s lengthy list of public service which includes serving as a student member of the Spaulding H.S. School Board, member of the Student Council, a volunteer with the Unified Special Olympics, and the chair of the annual Blood Drive at SHS for four years. Tom Sedore, Principal of Spaulding High School said, “Recognition by our President of one of our Spaulding High School students is special. Justin is quite deserving of this award, as his service to our Barre Community has been consistent in his four years here.”

Justin Sell Recognized for Volunteer Service

Sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program recognizes young people across America for outstanding community service activities. More than 370,000 young people across America have been considered for these awards since the program began in 1995. “The recipients of these awards vividly demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,” said John R. Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Financial. “In recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer service activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community.” “Demonstrating civic responsibility through community volunteerism is an important part of life,” said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. “These Honorees practice a lesson we hope all young people, as well as adults, will emulate.” Program applications were distributed last September through all public and private middle level and high schools, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs, and affiliates of HandsOn Network. After local honorees were named, state-level judges selected state honorees, distinguished finalists and Certificate of Excellence recipients. Volunteer activities were judged on criteria such as personal initiative, creativity, effort, impact, and personal growth.


y bathroom is covered with mildew. What should I do to paint it?

No big deal. First, you will need to wash off the mildew. We recommend X-14 or a mixture of one quart bleach with three quarts water, and a half-cup of TSP-phosphate free. Be sure to rinse off with fresh, clean water. Now you can prime the surface with California’s Stopz mold and mildew eliminator (the only EPA registered product that can claim to kill mold and mildew. It can be used outside, as well). You can put on a second coat of Stopz for a semi-gloss finish, or top coat with California’s Kitchen & Bath eggshell finish. Available in many colors, Stopz can also be used in basements and even some exterior applications.
True Colors is an independent locally owned California Paint dealer and we have been making your colors right since 1989!

Norwich University officials announced last week that Thomas P. McKenna, of Stowe, is the 2013 William E. Colby Award winner for his book, Kontum: The Battle to Save South Vietnam (The University Press of Kentucky, 2011). LTC McKenna, USA (Ret) served as a military adviser to the South Vietnamese Army of the Republic of Vietnam and has published articles on military history in “Vietnam,” “Military Officer,” and “Military Heritage” magazines. During his 22 years of service, McKenna served a total of 12 1/2 years overseas in Germany, Italy, Korea, and Vietnam. His book Kontum: The Battle to Save South Vietnam is a non-fiction military history based on his second tour in Vietnam. Assigned as a military adviser to the 23rd Division, McKenna participated in the battle of Kontum and in his book combines his personal experiences with years of interviews and research from primary sources to describe the events leading up to the invasion and the battle itself. “Thomas P. McKenna was one of a handful of American advisors in Kontum in 1972. His firsthand knowledge, personal valor, and superb research has resulted in a landmark account of one the most desperate and little known battles of the Vietnam War,” said Carlo D’Este, executive director of The William E. Colby Military Writers’ Symposium. “Described by a former commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division as ‘a soldier’s soldier,’ Thomas McKenna joins an eminent group of authors as the newest winner of the Colby Award.” Named for the late Ambassador and former CIA Director William E. Colby, the Colby

Samaritan Haven in Barre. “We are always looking for ways to give back to our community by partnering with area businesses,” said Kristin McCarthy of Lenny’s. “We are proud supporters of the Good Samaritan Haven and happy to offer the Vera Bradley bag exchange to collect donations for the shelter’s guests.”


Award recognizes a first work of fiction or nonfiction that has made a significant contribution to the public’s understanding of intelligence operations, military history or international affairs. “I am especially honored to be selected for the Colby Award because I know the judges were people who read and know military history,” McKenna said. A $5,000 author honorarium is provided through a grant from Chicago-based Tawani Foundation. The award and honorarium will be presented at Norwich University by Carlo D’Este during the 2013 Colby Military Writers’ Symposium at the Meet the Authors Dinner on April 11, 2013. The William E. Colby Award was originated at Norwich University in 1999. Ambassador Colby authored two important books, Lost Victory: A Firsthand Account of America’s Involvement in Vietnam and Honorable Men - My Life in the CIA. He was a decorated World War II veteran who served with the OSS in World War II and later with the CIA. From 1951–1962, Colby served with the American Embassies in Stockholm, Rome, and Saigon. He was Ambassador and Deputy to the Commander of the U.S. Military Assistance Command Vietnam from 1968 to 1971. Colby served as Director of the CIA from 1973-76. In honor of his commitment to Norwich University and the symposium, the program was named The William E. Colby Military Writers’ Symposium in 1997. The 2013 Symposium will take place April 10-11.

February 12, 2013 To whom it may concern, I am writing today to ask for your help. Sierra Pecor is a 2 year old from Northfield, Vermont. She was recently diagnosed with Lymphatic Malformation. This very rare disorder has created a growth on her neck, which has closed off her airway and esophagus. She now breathes through a trachea tube and is fed through a feeding tube. Sierra recently has been accepted to Syracuse Children’s Hospital. She will be going through treatments for approximately 6 months (each treatment lasts roughly 2-3 days). These treatments are experimental (not covered by insurance) and they are supposed to help reduce the mass and over time, the hope is for the mass to disappear altogether. Travel and consults, as well as the cost of the treatments are extremely expensive. Sierra’s parents, Nick Pecor and Shalyn Rogers, have been extremely dedicated to do anything they can to make sure everything can be done to get Sierra the treatment she needs. After Sierra is released from Fletcher Allen, she will be able to go home with special equipment, until she is able to be admitted to Syracuse Children’s Hospital. This family can really use your help. We are asking for donations to help support Sierra’s family during this extremely difficult time. We are also asking for any items that can be auctioned off at a benefit, in which all proceeds will be going directly to the family. The benefit is being held on March 30th at the Barre Elks Club. If your company can help in any way, we would all be forever grateful. Please contact the following people if you can help. Alana Richard: (802) 522-4851 Kim Driscoll: (802) 272-9735 Thank you for your time and consideration. Vermont is a special place where we take care of each other and we have faith this will ring true for Sierra and her family. Sincerely,

Make it an Irish Creme moment.

A gathering place for healthy aging and lifelong learning - this describes the Montpelier Senior Activity Center. Last week, the residents of Montpelier and the surrounding towns of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, and Worcester—all towns that support MSAC with tax funding-- gathered for town meetings, considered with due seriousness the requests for fiscal year 2014, and passed funding requests to support MSAC. We are grateful for the willingness of so many people to get involved, including many volunteers who petitioned for us, members and instructors who stood up at Town Meeting in support of MSAC, and all those who participated in the process leading up to and including town meeting. Why is this support important? With the aging population increasing rapidly, senior services are of the utmost importance in maintaining the vitality, socialization and health of our community’s seniors, including both the most active, young retirees and the most vulnerable elders. At MSAC, we offer weekly yoga & Tai Chi classes, dance, Living Strong Fitness, discounted First-in-Fitness memberships for gym privileges, swimming and tennis. A sample of class offerings includes: Spanish, French, Italian, Painting, Poetry, Writing, Introduction to Facebook, and a Film Series with Rick Winston. Registration is open in March for the Spring quarter (AprilJune). Come visit us at 58 Barre Street for upcoming events that are free and open to the public (see complete listings in the community calendar section):

The next toddler storytime will be Wednesday at 10am, here in the library. Storytimes will continue every Wednesday through April 17th. Bring your preschool children and enjoy Bill Palin reading stories and his live “critter of the week” for everyone to enjoy. The program concludes with craft time where children create “refrigerator art” to take home. The Williamstown Readers Group is a book discussion group that meets about 6 or 8 times a year. It is an excellent opportunity to get together with other book people and talk books everyone has read. The next book the group will discuss is the novel People of the Book by “New York Times” bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks. The group met last week, so there is plenty of time to pick up a copy at the Library and then participate in the next discussion. Call the Library (433-5887) for details or questions. Your library needs friends, all the friends it can get. An excellent way to become a friend of the library is to join the Friends of the Ainsworth Public Library. The Friends are looking to make more friends, so become one by joining. For information call Kathy (co-chair) at 249-0464 or call the library at 433-5887. Better yet, come to the next meeting, Monday April 15th at 6pm, here in the library. The monthly Board of Trustees meeting is the third Tuesday each month at 6pm in the Library. Trustees are elected town officials and volunteer their time to make your library what it is. All Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public. Come and see how your library works and thank them for all their work. Next meeting is March 19th, at 6pm at the library. If you can’t come to the library, visit us on the web 24/7 at Ainsworthpubliclibrary.wordpress.com. Visit us in person at the corner of VT routes 14 & 64. Regular Library Hours are: Monday, Thursday & Friday: 2pm to 6pm; Tuesday: 2pm to 6pm (most Tuesdays to 7pm, call to check); Wednesday: 9am to 6pm; and Saturday: 9am to 1pm. - Robert Youngberg, Library Director

Aldrich Public Library
Fiber-Optic Broadband is NEARLY HERE! Thanks to a $33.4 million Broadband Technology Opportunities Program grant to the Vermont Telecommunications Authority (VTA), the Aldrich Library is about to have a brand-new highspeed connection to the internet! The grant project, known as Vermont FiberConnect, is a public-private partnership between the VTA, Sovernet Communications and other partners, including the VT Department of Libraries, VT Department of Education, VT State Colleges, Vermont Law School, VT Department of Public Safety, VT Department of Information and Innovation, and the New England Telehealth Consortium. The grant is making possible a new fiber-optic backbone greater than 770 miles in length, and Aldrich Library is one of some 340 “community anchor institutions,” including public libraries, K-12 schools, colleges, State buildings, telehealth sites and public safety towers. Additional funds for the project came from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Opportunity Online Broadband Grant Program to bring fiber to public libraries. “We are thrilled with this opportunity to have high-speed fiber broadband in our library. This 21st century connection will enable us to expand the kinds of online services residents of Barre City and Barre Town want and need,” said Aldrich Library Director Karen Lane.

Some of Central Vermont’s finest actors will be performing William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on March 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, and 24 at the Haybarn Theatre on the campus of Goddard College in Plainfield. Director Peter Young has created a bold new twist on Shakespeare’s most easily understood play by inverting the ages of most of the characters with his casting - it is a dream, after all. Teen actors from the Shakespeare in the Hills summer camps (Ian Keene, Maggie McCaffrey, Adam Blachly) play the older characters in positions of authority, and middle-aged actors Susannah Blachly, Ellen Keene, Chris Pratt and Rob O’Leary play the teenage lovers. Veteran Unadilla actors Clarke Jordan and David Klein play Bottom the weaver and Oberon, King of the Fairies, respectively, and local opera diva and voice teacher Naomi Flanders plays Titania, Queen of the Fairies, in her first ever appearance in a Shakespeare play. Curtain for the Friday and Saturday shows is 7:30pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students and $5 for kids under 12. For ticket information and to make reservations, call 229-4191. The show is the sixth annual Echo Valley Community Arts/ Shakespeare in the Hills production.

“Everyone was very supportive and helpful. It was all very calm and nice.” Catherine and Lance Brown introduced their lovely daughter Molly Olivia to the world on Friday, the first day of March. More importantly, they introduced little Molly to her big brother Max (18 months). She was happily napping in her mama’s arms when we stopped by - which suited her brother just fine because he received all the attention AND a great new stuffed cat. Mom and Dad are going to have their hands full indeed - and we bet lots of fun and laughter as well. And when Molly gets home to Barre we bet her big brother will be sharing the attention. Molly weighed 7lb/13 oz and was 21 inches long. CVMC happily welcomes Molly to the CVMC family as well. Her mom works at CVMC’s Waterbury Medical Associates and her grandmother Kathy Pelletier is the director of CVMC’s Garden Path Birthing Center. Molly must share her grandmother with thirteen other grandkids but we’re sure she’ll still get plenty of loving. Congratulations and best wishes to all!

Northfield Elementary School welcomes singer and master songwriter Jon Gailmor to help celebrate “Music in our Schools Month.” Gailmor is well known by generations of Vermonters for his abundance of energy, artistic drive, and crafty songwriting and lyrics. He is a fixture in the Vermont music scene, traveling to dozens of schools to perform and conduct song writing residencies with students of all ages. During his ten day residency in Northfield, Gailmor will spend his time with each of the classes in grades K-5. He will be assisting and guiding the song writing with lyrics written and created by students, which will be put to music created by students. The residency will culminate with a CD featuring student artwork, along with the music created by the students. The highlight of the residency will be a free evening concert on Thursday, March 21st, in the Northfield High School Auditorium at 7pm, featuring the students of Northfield Elementary School singing their own songs along with Gailmor, who will also perform several of his own songs. This residency is generously sponsored by the Northfield Savings Bank Seaver Fund and Paine Mountain Arts Council.

Poulos Insurance says...
A personal umbrella policy (PUP) is a necessary addition to insurance protection for most people. A PUP provides an additional limit of $1,000,000(or more) if needed. This policy is designed to protect your assets from the potential of a large, liability lawsuit that exhausts the underlying liability limits of your auto, home or RV policy. The situation of a serious incident arising from just normal, daily activities can expose all of us to the potential for a large claims suit. Whether it's a serious auto accident, an event during a party at your home or even an accident while boating...there are very real consequences of situations that can quickly exhaust underlying limits and threaten the net worth of the people involved. Coverage is readily available and costs less than a dollar per day. If you want to know more, contact us at......

For the past several years, he has been a member of the state Invertebrate Species Advisory Group. “Alan’s hands-on experience and professionalism will be invaluable as we continue to address the mosquito population in our state,” said Tim Schmaltz, director of Plant Industry, who will oversee Alan in his new role. “Alan understands the complicated nuances of integrated vector management, and will be key to our success managing this pest, as well as other insect issues in our state.” “Vector management is a top priority for our Agency,” said Secretary Chuck Ross. “The issue becomes more critical with every season, as we continue to experience a shift in weather patterns. Alan has the experience and expertise to lead the state forward in addressing these needs. I am pleased to appoint him to State Entomologist.” Graham’s appointment is effective immediately. He will be based at the state lab in Berlin.

Editor: We are writing to inform all Barre Town residents and business owners of the newly formed East Barre Neighborhood Watch. This watch was created from a group of concerned residents and business owners in our village that have experienced vandalism, theft, or have witnessed suspicious activities that have caused concern. Our first meeting of the minds took place at the East Barre Fire Department on January 29th with guest speaker Officer Damien Hook from the Barre Town Police Department. Officer Hook provided the group with advice on how to direct and share pertinent information, as well as some insight on the manpower available at any given time to deal with issues and concerns of the community. A second meeting followed on February 19th with a focus on how to get organized, what resources are available to us, and ways to spread the word to other sections of Barre Town. Our next event – a Dessert Potluck Social – will be held March 19th at 6pm to 7:30pm, at the East Barre Congregational Church in East Barre. A presentation for the children on ‘Stranger Danger’ will be provided by the Vermont State Police. We invite you to come meet your neighbors as we discuss ways to make our town a united, informed, safer and stronger community. We look forward to seeing you. East Barre Neighborhood Watch

from the ages of 13 through 22 can enjoy free pizza, soft drinks, conversation, and camaraderie in a spacious room at the Unitarian Church. The gathering time runs from 6:30 pm to 8:00pm and it’s facilitated by two adult volunteers who have been trained by Outright VT, the state’s advocacy group for LGBTQQ youth. To be young and gay in Vermont can be difficult. “Friday Night Group” provides an important social outlet. Thanks to Outright VT for creating this opportunity, to the Unitarian Church of Montpelier for donating the space, to Shaw’s for donating beverages, and to Al Portico and Positive Pie for donating pizza for the sessions held so far. Please help get the word out about Friday Night Group to young people who may be interested. Thank you. Nancy Schulz Montpelier resident and Volunteer Facilitator Outright VT

Editor: The Vermont Center for Independent Living was excited when it learned the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act has passed Congress. VCIL commends Vermont’s own Senator Leahy for co-sponsoring this very important legislation. According to statistics from the U.S. Department of Justice, people with disabilities among ages 12-15 experience violent victimization (including rape/sexual assault, robbery and aggravated assault) at least twice that of persons without disabilities. In addition, persons with disabilities are more likely to be attacked by persons well known to them or who were casual acquaintances of the victim than persons without disabilities. In addition to the updates in the reauthorization around inclusiveness of the LGBTQ community, immigrants and Native Americans, money will be now be provided for accessible shelters and technical assistance to first responders, law enforcement and shelter staff for working with people with disabilities. VCIL applauds the efforts of allies from the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and the Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services for their work advocating for VAWA’s expanded capability to protect people with disabilities from violence.

By G. E. Shuman he older I get, the plainer it seems to me that nearly everything in life can be seen in more than one way. Almost every circumstance can be viewed and interpreted as either a blessing or a curse. Truthfully, some things are probably both. (Such is my experience in raising teenagers.) “The rain falls on the just and the unjust,” as the Bible says. That’s a good thing if you have crops to water, but not so much if you’re on your way to the beach. In both cases, one thing is for sure. Someone’s gonna get wet. Also, truthfully, some people really do seem to be eternal optimists about such things, and others always have to view that old glass as half empty. I’m not at all sure why that is so. I’m just sure that the eternal optimists irritate the daylights out of me sometimes, even as I envy them. Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying: “We must accept the fact that either nothing is a miracle, or everything is a miracle.” I’m not even sure which side of the miracle-fence ol’ Al was on, but I suspect that he might just have wondered if this big universe could really have popped (or banged) into being by accident. In any case, as you may have surmised, my vote is for everything being a miracle. I also do my best to view life positively, at least when it’s convenient to do so. The alternative is, as proposed by Lemony Snicket, a series of unfortunate events. The very existence of life itself, to me, is miraculous. Just the simple fact, and it is a fact that really isn’t simple at all, that we are even here, is pretty amazing. The further fact that we humans, as do no other life forms on our planet, KNOW that we are alive, even though, with that, we also have to know that we will die, is another miracle. (That is the messy down side to sentiently observing the world, I guess.) What I have observed, in my many years of observing and cogitating, so far, is that life seems to be a combina-

Messy Miracles

■ ■ ■


tion of both good times and dire inevitabilities; filled with hope and pleasure, and also with fear and pain. Life is wonderful, but it is messy, and short, and sometimes hard. For some, it is extremely short, and profoundly hard. Appreciating the miracle that is life depends entirely on our attitude toward our own situation. Some people are quite able to display impatience and dissatisfaction, no matter how good things are going for them. An elderly friend of mine would have said that those folks “would complain if they were being hung with a new rope.” One owner of a brand new house or car, or other thing, may easily tire of it, (this is called ‘when the new wears off’) while some other owner of a lesser thing may be happy with and thankful for what he has. Some folks, even if their pockets are full, always seem to find the dark cloud surrounding that silver lining, complaining all the way to the bank. Other people, those eternal optimists, seem to always have smiles on their faces, no matter what. For one person a hangnail can bring depression and distress, while serious disease may not discourage another. Our existence is not perfect, to be sure. Bad things do happen during the miracle. I believe that some people simply choose to be happy, anyway. In all honesty, the “germ of an idea” for this column came to me in the form of a TV commercial, just last night. The brilliantly-written ad was for a brand of diapers, and poignantly featured a beautiful newborn baby in the process of getting her diaper changed by her mom. The narrator in the ad said few words. Some of those words were these: “Sometimes... miracles get messy.” And so it is with life. “George’s World,” a new 740 page collection of George’s columns from The World, is available at xlibris.com, amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and your favorite bookstore. “The Smoke And Mirrors Effect,” George’s first novel, can be seen at amazon. com and barnesandnoble.com. Happy Reading!

get together every other week with a group of friends who live throughout Vermont. What makes our luncheon so terrific is that every single one of us have, what I like to think of as, a little “age” on us. I think that the youngest is 69 and the oldest is 90, and you would think that we would have nothing to talk about. But nothing could be further from the truth! I think that I am the one who has lived in Vermont the longest, 52 years, but our ages and our lifestyles are what make our group so much fun. We have a new member who is very attractive, with snow white hair that she wears in a pony tail. She has a southern accent and looks about 50, and no one was more surprised when I learned that she is almost 80! Her name is Renee and the reason that she looks and acts so young is that she is the most crafty and active person that I know. Instead of sitting around reading and watching TV, she makes hats, gloves, and scarves and sells them at every single craft fair throughout Central Vermont. And her things don’t look like old lady hats, either. When she showed me an example of what she does, I was so excited that I bought the best hat I have ever owned. Just as an aside, even Malcolm liked it. Of course I lost it too soon, and Renee was kind enough to make me another one just like the one I lost. I wore it for the first time yesterday and not only was I warm, it made me feel really good and I received several compliments on it… who would have ever thought. So, when we all get together there are usually six of us. From our original group two have died, but their spots were immediately filled by other interesting and exciting new women. And to be fair, I want to introduce you to the rest of our group, at least those who make up the nucleus: Joy lives in East Hardwick and is fun and extremely knowledgeable about lots of things. She also had “The Group” for a Christmas luncheon that was so beautifully done that it made my whole holiday season. Kathryn is our oldest member and has been my friend for over 20 years. She lives in Craftsbury and is really a hoot! From the first day that I met her we have been friends that enjoy each others company and sense of humor! And Kathryn’s daughter, Mary Kate has become an integral member of our group. She is a lovely woman who enjoys being with us all, and though she is unable to speak, she manages to make herself understood and we all feel she contributes something to our group that we would miss should she not be with us.

Reiss’s Pieces I
By Judy Reiss

Derrick is one of the youngest and she is an extraordinary woman. She does just about everything imaginable and has a degree in landscape architecture. For me, nothing could be more difficult and it is my pleasure to hear from Derrick not only about gardening and landscaping but just about everything and anything that is current. My contribution is harder to pinpoint, but I hope I do contribute and help hold the group together. I am sure some of you are wondering why I am sharing this facet of my social life with you. As you know, I had a lot of stupid health issues this winter, including my stroke, eye problems that included partial blindness, and really bad pains in my hands. I also had trouble getting around, not because I had feet or leg problems, but because I just couldn’t see where I was going some of the time. So, why am I sharing with you? Well, I want you to know that while I was sitting in the house, reading and watching a lot of TV, I felt like I was just waiting to die! I did nothing, could do nothing and tried to do nothing! When I started to make sure that I didn’t miss one of my “girls only” luncheons, I started to feel a lot better. Could I tell you what we talk about? No, I couldn’t because there really isn’t anything that we DON’T talk about. And if you were a fly on the wall and listened to what we have to say, I think you would be very surprised! So, what I am trying to share with you is this- if you sit at home and do nothing, you will gain nothing and just slide your way into old age and death! Not a really pleasant scenario. Think about it. You have to figure out how to get together with old friends or new friends and stimulate yourself. You can laugh, you can cry, you can argue, you can learn so much about all sorts of things - a lot you are dying to learn about and some things you couldn’t care less about! But what you are doing is stimulating your brain and ultimately yourself. I can think about lots of things that I am willing to give up, but my luncheon with my “girls group” isn’t one of them. And I aencourage every single one of you, whether you are young, middle-age or old, to do the same. I hate the word or the idea of being active, but actually that is exactly what this kind of group is. And don’t limit yourself to a book club or a craft group. Enjoy and join a group of people who you know or don’t really know, and then talk about anything and everything that you all can think of. And all of a sudden you will find yourself feeling younger and more exciting than you can imagine. And if you really need a topic to discuss, write or call me and I will help you with a list that will knock your socks off.

Senate Report:
by Senator Bill Doyle

Early Comments From Town Meeting Survey
Cell Phones “Cell phone use while driving is not being responsible. Cell phone drivers are arrogant and have total disregard for the well-being of others, and those who allow this to continue are equally irresponsible. I just can’t believe I am the only person to witness the variety of dumb things the cell phone drivers do while they think they have everything under control. This feels threatening to me, and adds another layer to defensive driving.” Cost of Living “Two of my biggest concerns are whether or not we are going to be able to afford living here because of all the high costs and also affordable health care. I was born and raised here, but as I near retirement, I worry about the affordability of staying here. I love Vermont, but feel very unsettled about our future here. I also see the struggles of my patients who have to make such difficult choices between their health care, food and housing. We also need more tools to deal with Vermont’s drug problems - zero tools to deal with Vermont’s drug problems - zero tolerance for drug dealers, and more help to combat drug addiction.” Food “I think there should be more places where families could grow their own food. Berlin needs one. The school was a good start. It helped students learn math. Farmers markets and time shares are The CVMC Auxiliary Bene-Fit times.” too expensive for families in these hardShop will be closed Solar “I would like to see more solar panels instead of weaker more expensive wind power panels. The two most important items in the survey for 2013 are #9 ‘locally grown food’ - very important - and #7 ‘sugar sweetened beverage tax.’ #2 ‘no cell phones’ and #11 ‘growing hemp.’ I vote for all four of these.” Sugar Beverages “Why are we being told what we can eat or drink? This state is full of taxes, and people are moving out because of all the taxes you in the legislature are putting in. We cannot live on more taxes. Farms are going out and people are moving out of state.” Taxes “Please do not let any taxes be put on heating fuel (oil, LP gas, kerosene). This is VERMONT, with long, cold winters. Those of us on limited incomes just can’t afford to pay more to heat our homes. Many of us earn just enough to exclude us from any programs that offer assistance. I do support taxes that everyone - tourists, renters, and property owners would pay. Those with higher incomes should pay more to help support the government.” “No new taxes - cuts only. No new laws that create a mandated payment. We’re broke.” Transportation “Recommend the outlawing of tire studs. Other states ban them for good reason. They destroy expensive roads.”

Although his 50 years of life were shorter than he hoped for or imagined, he was blessed with a lifetime of much love and joy thanks to his family, friends, lakeside camp and work. Jim loved his wife and children more than life itself. Family and friends were always there for him and he appreciated their love and support. He was admired for his sense of humor, loyalty, intelligence and bravery. He loved boating and spending time at his camp on Lake Bomoseen. There, he was captain of his boats and master of his grill.

He was the postmaster in several locations around Vermont with his most recent assignment in Middlebury. He was dedicated to his job and supported the colleagues he worked with. He never missed a day of work for illness until his recent diagnosis in September.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your need to know what’s going on behind the scenes leads you to make some bold moves. Be prepared with a full explanation of your actions if necessary. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A lot of details need tending to during the early part of the week. The pressure eases by the 20th, allowing you to get back to your major undertaking. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A friend asks you to act on his or her behalf in a dispute. Be careful. You might not have all the facts you need in order to make a fair assessment of the situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new development might require you to cancel some of your plans. But you adapt easily, and by week’s end, you could receive welcome “cheering-up” news. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent workplace accomplishments boost your self-confidence just as you’re about to consider a potentially rewarding, although possibly risky, career move. BORN THIS WEEK: Your love of the arts is equaled only by your strong sense of justice. People can depend on you to always try to do what’s right.

Corned Beef with Cabbage and Potatoes

Sauteed Cabbage and Fresh Peas

n my 20s, I went out late almost every Friday night. Consequently, I have been stopped at countless DUI checkpoints. And, I’m pleased to report, I was never once asked to get out of my car or take a breathalyzer. Is that because I had never had a beer while I was out? No comment. I’m pretty sure that the real reason I was never hassled by the law is that I planned ahead. I understood that the police are looking for people who may be menaces to society. So I tried to be as unmenacing as possible. I wore respectable clothing. I always had short hair and I shaved before I went out. I kept my car clean and smoke free. When cops asked me questions, I spoke to them respectfully. Did I think that it is right or fair or just that I had to alter my behavior and appearance to impress the cops? It doesn’t matter what I think. That’s the way it is. Those who ignore this basic truth about society are putting themselves at risk of getting in trouble with the law. The West Memphis 3 learned this lesson the hard way. They were a trio of long-haired, metal-head teenagers with a history of trouble-making who were wrongly accused of murdering three 8-year-old boys in 1993. For lack of a real motive, the State concocted a lurid and ludicrous tale of Satanism and ritual sacrifice and convinced the jury to convict the teens. It is perfectly clear that the West Memphis 3 were innocent. It was also clear that the police never would have accused the young men of the crime if they had gone to church, played on the football team, listened to Garth Brooks, and had crew cuts. Conveniently, though, it was their rebel outsider status that gained them international attention. Before long, celebrities like Johnny Depp, Peter Jackson, Eddie Vedder and Natalie


West of Memphis


Maines had given their support to the West Memphis 3. I sincerely applaud the celebrities who selflessly donated their time and money to free the West Memphis 3. However, I have to shake my head a little bit at the foolishness of the celebrities - and the documentarians - for saying that they were fighting for “Justice.” Justice?! It seems to me that Justice is the reason the West Memphis 3 wound up in this mess to begin with. It was the community’s hunger for Justice that led the police to hurry the investigation and find scapegoats as quickly as possible. It was in the name of Justice that the DA and the judge railroaded the hapless teens straight into the State Penitentiary. To them, Justice was nothing more than an excuse to abuse their power in order to get publicity and further their political aspirations. And, make no mistake, Eddie Vedder: it wasn’t Justice that ultimately led to the freeing of the West Memphis 3. It was the fact that the huge influx of Hollywood money had changed the balance of power. The young men were always innocent. It wasn’t until they could afford top-notch lawyers and forensics experts that they were finally freed in 2011. I certainly didn’t agree with every point that director Amy Berg had to say in “West of Memphis” and I didn’t appreciate that she took 2 1/2 hours to say it. However, we certainly agree on two key points: the West Memphis 3 are innocent. And our criminal justice system is far from perfect.

LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE/ Lose 20 pounds in one week? This is almost impossible! Weight loss ads must reflect the typical experiences of the diet users. Beware of programs that claim you can lose weight effortlessly.

Before you invest your time and money call the ATTORNEY GENERAL’S CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, at 1-800-649-2424. WANT A CURE-ALL? Health fraud is a business that sells false hope. Beware of unsubstantiated claims for health products and services. There are no “Quick Cures” - no matter what the ad is claiming. TIP: DO NOT rely on promises of a “money back guarantee!” Watch out for key words such as “exclusive secret,” “amazing results,” or “scientific breakthrough.” For more information on health related products or services, call the ATTORNEY GENERAL’S CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM at 1-800-649-2424, or consult a health care provider.

Fountain Pen
Q: I have a Sheaffer’s Lifetime fountain pen, in excellent condition. How much is it worth? -- Mrs. F.V., Rio Rancho, N.M. A: According to “Collecting Pens” by Edward Kiersh, if your pen was manufactured in 1950 and is a Lifetime Triumph with Touchdown filler, it could be worth $125 in new to excellent condition. *** Q: We have a stovetop waffle iron that was manufactured by Stover. We would like to know if it has any value as a collectible. -- Hershel and Freda, Jackson, Mo. A: Prices depend on rarity and desirability. Although I could not find your particular waffle iron in my reference books, a rule of thumb is that the more intricate the waffle iron, the higher the price. For example, the Yum Yum waffle iron manufactured by Griswold for hotel kitchens is valued at between $500 and $1,200, depending on size and model. Most of the other simpler ones fall into the $40 to $100 range, again depending on rarity and desirability. I would think that your waffle iron might fall into that range, too. *** Q: I have dozens of old 78 rpm records by such artists as

Patti Page, Dinah Shore and Frank Sinatra. Where can I sell them? -- Mrs. J.W., Holmdel, N.J. A: Good question. Finding anyone interested in 78 rpm records is getting harder and harder. There are three major reasons why this is so. First, most of the better vintage music has been transferred to either cassette tape or compact discs. Second, finding equipment to play the older records on is becoming almost impossible and, finally, 78 rpm discs are fragile and difficult to preserve and store. I wish I had better news for you, but I suggest you donate your collection to a charity. *** Q: I began collecting Western paperbacks when I was a teenager more than 50 years ago. I would now like to sell them. Please advise me. -- Marsha, Sioux Falls, S.D. A: I suggest you start by contacting dealers in your area. The Book Shop buys and sells used paperbacks, a good place to begin. Contact is 223 S. Phillips Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57104. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@ aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox is unable to personally answer all reader questions.

Going Off-Leash
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My puppy, “Sky,” is approaching a year old, and she is still a bit rambunctious. I’d like to take her to a nearby off-leash dog park, but I’m worried about how she will act around other dogs and people. -- John P., Portland, Maine DEAR JOHN: First, I want to commend you for putting so much thought into your decision to bring Sky to an off-leash park. It’s important to be considerate of how your dog will behave in social situations. The question now is, how exactly will she behave? My guess is that Sky has not spent a lot of time with other dogs. She’s old enough now to start socializing, but first make sure she has had all needed vaccinations. Start small -- schedule a play date with a friend or neighbor’s dog, and gradually build the number of dogs she’s around. Supervise her the entire time to make sure she gets along well with other dogs. If it isn’t possible to do a limited play date, look into weekly group training sessions with a professional trainer. These will reinforce basic obedience skills with Sky with the added benefit of socializing, in a controlled environment, with other dogs. If neither option is available, slowly introduce Sky to the dog park. Pick a time when few dogs are in the park. (You’ll need to scout the park on your own beforehand.) Keep her on the leash for the first few visits, especially when she’s meeting new dogs. Be a good park patron, too. Talk with the other dog owners while you’re there -- they can offer helpful advice. Pick up after Sky. Make sure Sky will respond to you and your commands both on and off leash.

Will the Internet kill your free community paper? Did instant coffee kill coffee?
New technologies change many things. But not everything. You may tweet, blog, surf, shop, or search online but you continue to read your free community paper. You just proved it. Readership of free community papers is now higher than paid daily papers, and continues to grow. Rather than being replaced by “instant” media, your local free community paper has become an important part of our neighborhood. The reason, which sometimes is not heard because of all the noise about the Internet, is pretty obvious: your free community paper does what the Internet doesn’t. We promote connections at a local level. Free papers join readers and advertisers in ways digital media don’t. In fact, the local content and power of your free paper makes advertising even more effective. We are the number one medium for driving purchases. That’s important in every product category. Including coffee.

A cloudy generally gloomy easterly flow from off the Gulf of Maine as a near mainstay last week. A strong Mid Atlantic low pressure system blew out to sea to our south. It’s expanding circulation brought clouds and some snow to mainly the southern half of the state and very limited amounts further to the north last Friday. Most of the week was dismally cloudy until the storm system meandered far enough away and higher pressure built in Friday afternoon to make for a gorgeous Saturday.

Last Week’s Vermont Weather…

NORTHFIELD, this home is the fairy tale that reminds us that beauty, character, and energy lie within. On 4+ pleasant acres bordering the Sunny Brook, with gardens, woods, and a fire pit, this home shows its beauty with bright rooms and playful places. The large, sunfilled mudroom leads to an open and updated kitchen. Enjoy the screened balcony, finished basement, three bedrooms including an elegant master suite . $179,000.

NEWER BARRE CITY home with lovely landscaping surrounding this lot. Open floor plan with kitchen island, dining area with sliders to deck, living room, two bedrooms and master bedroom and bath. This home has one floor living with laundry on first floor too. Attached one car garage, walk out basement with lots of room to finish if needed for more space. $173,000.

Last Saturday was a gem of a day with clear blue skies and bright sunshine complete with highs edging into the 50s. This looks east-southeast from near the top of Elmore Mountain. Through the trees, the brighter white on the horizon were not clouds but New Hampshire’s Presidential Range.

Maple Sugarer’s were boiling and the sap was flowing. As needed night time lows below freezing followed readings in the low 50s into Sunday. By Sunday night into Tuesday night, an all too familiar warm minimum took place. Too many nights without sub-freezing temperatures can ruin sap quality.

Global Temperature Facts For Last Week

Highest temperature: 60 degrees at Passumpsic River last Sunday the 10th Lowest temperature: 16 degrees at Averill and Canaan Tuesday morning the 5th Heaviest melted precipitation: 0.26 of an inch at Averill ending Tuesday morning the 5th Most Snowfall: 6.0” in Sunderland ending Friday morning the 8th Most snow on the ground: 66 inches Thursday afternoon the 7th Last week’s hottest temperature on planet earth was 114 degrees F Matam (Senegal) Last week’s cold spot was minus 87 at Davis Lgb 46 Aws (Antarctica)

February 24th through March 2nd CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory were 396.81 ppm now on a seasonal downward leg which takes place as the northern hemisphere greens up and pulls carbon out of the atmosphere. This was compared to 393.95 ppm one year ago for the same week. That’s was up 2.86 parts per million. Global temperatures are warmer than at any time in at least 4,000 years, scientists reported, and over the coming decades are likely to surpass levels not seen on the planet since before the last ice age about 12,000 years ago per a recent study. Even if the temperature increase from human activity that is projected for later this century comes out on the low end of estimates, scientists said, the planet will be at least as warm as it was during the warmest periods of the modern geological era, known as the Holocene, and probably warmer than that. The modern rise that has recreated the temperatures of 5,000 years ago is occurring at an exceedingly rapid clip on a geological time scale. If the rise continues apace, early Holocene temperatures are likely to be surpassed within this century, Dr. Marcott said, an earth scientist at Oregon State University. Dr. Mann a Penn State climatologist pointed out that the early Holocene temperature increase was almost certainly slow, giving plants and creatures time to adjust. But he said the modern spike would probably threaten the survival of many species, in addition to putting severe stresses on human civilization. “We and other living things can adapt to slower changes,” Dr. Mann said. “It’s the unprecedented speed with which we’re changing the climate that is so worrisome.” America’s top military officer in charge of monitoring hostile actions by North Korea, escalating tensions between China and Japan, and a spike in computer attacks traced to China provides an unexpected answer when asked what is the biggest long-term security threat in the Pacific region: climate change. Navy Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III, in an interview meeting with scholars at Harvard and Tufts universities, said significant upheaval related to the warming planet “is probably the most likely thing that is going to happen that will cripple the security environment, probably more likely than the other scenarios we all often talk about.’’ “People are surprised sometimes,” he added, describing the reaction to his assessment. “You have the real potential here in the not-too-distant future of nations displaced by rising sea level. Certainly weather patterns are more severe than they have been in the past. We are on super typhoon 27 or 28 this year in the Western Pacific. The average is about 17.” But when it comes to pragmatic military planning, Locklear said he is increasingly focused on another highly destabilizing force. “The ice is melting and sea is getting higher,” Locklear said, noting that 80 percent of the world’s population lives within 200 miles of the coast. “I’m into the consequence management side of it. I’m not a scientist, but the island of Tarawa in Kiribati, is contemplating moving their entire population to another country because [it] is not going to exist anymore.” The US military, he said, is beginning to reach out to other armed forces in the region about the destabilizing issue. After a rainy wet Tuesday with a fair amount of snow loss in the valley elevations, and about ½ to nearly an inch of rainfall, we should see a colder transition day today – Wednesday. Temperatures aloft that supported rain on Tuesday and Tuesday night were cooling and will support some mountain snow showers and valley flurries. Normal highs this time of year are in the upper 30s and we’ll see slightly below normal conditions starting Thursday and lasting through the weekend. Rain…typically helps out mud season. This sounds like a contradiction, but what causes mud season is a frozen slab of earth beneath roadways. When warm temperatures occur, the melt is at the surface, where the grimy mud is, causing water to be trapped and not drained, thus you get mud. When it rains, the relative warmth of rain water melts the frozen slab below the mud and thus actually proves to allow for drainage, releasing the water logged aspect of the surface. Stretches of dry – Sugaring Weather in spring actually lengthens the mud season. Best back road travel will always be in the morning hours when the ground is coldest. If you can… try to do you most back road travel in the mornings, as opposed to after 11 AM or Noon. As soon as temperatures warm above freezing, the mud is most liquid and travel the most unpleasant. If you can avoid travel on our local back gravel roads, it will do you, your neighbors and your town road crews an extra service.

There’s no room in Vermont grocery carts for a beverage tax.
The Vermont beverage tax means paying more for sodas, juice drinks, teas and sports drinks. Some prices could go up by almost 50%. Vermont already pays some of the highest taxes in the country. Montpelier politicians need to cut wasteful spending before they ask us to pay more.
