Vermont Senior State Senator


William Doyle to be Honored
at Gala Celebration

the eastern United States. He is always there


in Central Vermont, whether for a pancake
breakfast or a black tie dinner. Senator Doyle
has always dedicated himself to listening and
learning from the voters and then representing their concerns under the golden dome in
Montpelier. He has been a very strong and
active member of the Central Vermont
Chamber of Commerce and we are thrilled to
able to celebrate his contributions to
Vermont.
The Central Vermont Chambers Public
Policy Chair, Joe Choquette noted that, I
have observed Senator Doyle at work in the
capitol over many years. He is a tireless advocate for the people of Central Vermont in
particular as well as all Vermonters. Through
the Doyle Poll he stayed in close touch with
the views and opinions of the voters. Through
the Council of State Governments he shared
his unique vision with leaders of other states.
The General Assembly and all who have
worked with Bill at the Statehouse and beyond
will miss him greatly in the upcoming biennium.
Tickets for the event are $45 and are on a
first-come, first-served basis and may be purchased by contacting the Central Vermont
Chamber of Commerce at 802-229-5711.

Vermonts senior State Senator William


Doyle will be honored with a gala celebration
of his contributions to Vermont on Feb. 23,
2017 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Montpelier
in an event sponsored by the Central Vermont
Chamber of Commerce. Former Governor
James H. Douglas will be the master of ceremonies for the event.
Doyle has served with distinction in the
Vermont State Senate since 1969. That tenure
is only exceeded by his tenure at Johnson
State College where he has taught political
science since 1958.
Doyle grew up in New Jersey, graduated
from The Lawrenceville School and received
his bachelor of arts degree from Princeton
University. He earned masters and doctorate
degrees from Columbia University. The
author of The Vermont Political Tradition:
And Those Who Helped Make It, Doyle is
renowned for his annual Town Meeting Day
Survey which he began in 1970.
In announcing the tribute, Central Vermont
Chamber of Commerce Board Chair Lindel
James praised Doyle, who lives in Montpelier
with his wife, Olene.
Senator Doyle is a Vermont treasure, she
said. His dedication to his constituents has
won praise from Republicans, Democrats and
Independents across the state and throughout

Former Vermonter Shares Incredible Story


about his Uncle, a World War II Soldier

On the eve of Pearl Harbor Remembrance


Day, Paul Levy, a former Montpelier resident,
returned to the capital city to share the incredible journey he embarked on after receiving
an unexpected package about 30 years ago.
The package was from the sister of his
uncles widow, and Paul received the package
more than 40 years after his uncle, Phil Levy,
was killed in action in World War II. It contained Phils diary and a Purple Heart.
Like many families who lived through the
war, Paul Levys had found it difficult to talk
about their experience and the loss of a loved
one. Consequently, he knew little about the
man, his life or his death. After the package
arrived, what eventually ensued was a worldwide search and a surprise ending.
Levys search for answers about the uncle
he never met resulted in Levy doing extensive
research and writing a book that came out
over the summer called Finding Phil: Lost in
War and Silence. He shared stories from the
book on Dec. 6 at the Vermont Center for
Independent Livings Montpelier office.
The event was cosponsored by Bear Pond
Books, and a couple of dozen people attended
to learn about Levys book and reconnect with
old friends, including people who were instrumental in the founding of VCIL, a statewide
disability rights organization.
VCIL Executive Director Sarah Launderville
said, Paul worked with the first generation of
VCIL employees back in the early 1980s as a
community organizer and legal adviser. I am
truly thrilled that he came back to visit us and
tell us about the odyssey he went on to learn
more about his uncle. I was also thrilled to
reconnect with other folks who helped start
VCIL.
For many years, Paul Levy was a poverty
lawyer and community organizer in Indiana

At Vermont Center for Independent Living in


Montpelier, Paul Levy (right) recently shared the
story of his uncle and the book that came about
through his extensive research. Also pictured is
his wife, Elizabeth.

and Vermont. He has a doctorate in social


work from Columbia University and has
taught at the college level. Today, he is retired
and lives in Concord, N.H., with his wife,
Elizabeth (who used to work as the information & referral director at VCIL). Paul continues a long-standing interest in disability rights
and serves as board president of the Disability
Rights Center of New Hampshire.

Community Scale Biodigester at VTC Demonstrates Renewable Energy,


Waste Reduction, and Nutrient Management in Vermont

Big Bertha, the anaerobic digester at Vermont Technical


College, is operating at full capacity and successfully putting
electricity onto the grid. With a carefully formulated diet of
cow manure and organic matter from Vermont farms and
brewery waste from the Alchemist and Long Trail Brewing
Co., at full power Big Bertha transforms 16,000 gallons of
waste to 8,800 kilowatt hours of electricity dailyequivalent
to about 200 gallons of heating oil, or the amount of electricity consumed by about 70 houses on a cold day.
One of only a handful of anaerobic digester projects of its
kind in the country, Big Bertha provides electricity for the
grid, a living laboratory for students, and recycled nutrients
for agriculture, notes Vermont Tech President, Patricia
Moulton. This project embodies Vermont Techs unique
combination of education theory and applied learning.
The biodigester serves as a real world classroom providing
students and the community with hands-on emerging technology training. Vermont Tech has created curriculum, an
apprenticeship program, and integrated the biodigester into
the colleges renewable energy Bachelor Degree program.
Big Bertha also produces clean animal bedding and crop fertilizer output for Vermont Techs farms and fields.
Vermont Tech and project partner Vermont Sustainable
Jobs Fund published the Vermont Tech Community Anaerobic
Digester Report, a collection of digester manuals and management plans, timeline and process, and data collection systems so colleges and municipalities across the country can
replicate the community scale anaerobic digester model.
As communities in areas with impaired watersheds consider how else they might manage excess nutrients and keep
food residuals out of landfills, as well as explore ways to
produce more of their own electricity from renewable sources,
a community scale anaerobic digester may be a viable scenario, says Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund Executive
Director, Ellen Kahler.
With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy that was
secured by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and managed by the
Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, along with a bond from the
Vermont State Colleges, the total cost of the Vermont Tech
biodigester project was $4.2 million. The Vermont
Environmental Consortium and the Central Vermont Solid
Waste Management District were also important partners dur-

ing the feasibility phase of this project.


This digester project has fulfilled exactly what I hoped
would be accomplished when I sought the funding, said US
Senator Patrick Leahy. It is a true research digester, and
Vermont Tech and the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund have
put together a project that will add greatly to our knowledge
of how to build and operate digesters at this scale, while giving Vermont Tech students first-hand experience with the
technology, experience that cant be matched by much larger
research universities.
Vermont Tech took on calculated risk in both permitting
and technology to become fully operational. The biodigester
was the first in Vermont to go through a permitting process to
accept food waste. Vermont Tech conducted comprehensive
community outreach and engagement to build support for the
project and successfully connected education, agriculture,
waste management, and environment interests to get behind

the project. They also facilitated collaboration among state


and federal regulators, food system organizations, farmers,
and food waste producers. Big Bertha is modeled after
European technology, and is a U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency AgSTAR partner, which recognizes biogas recovery
systems that help to reduce methane emissions and can also
help achieve other social, environmental, agricultural and
economic benefits.
Big Bertha is also helping Vermont reach its ambitious
goals of 90% renewable energy by 2050. In addition, as
Vermonts Universal Recycling Law (Act 148) ramps up to
ban food and organic waste from landfills by 2020, Vermont
Tech and its food waste transportation partners will become
integral to help divert organic waste from landfills, prevent
the flow of excess nutrients to Lake Champlain and other
watersheds, and supporting agriculture and increased local
food production.

Four 4-Hers Compete at National Dairy Judging Contest

Four Vermont teens were among the 112


4-Hers from throughout the country chosen
to participate at the National 4-H Dairy Cattle
Judging Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, earlier this fall.
Comprising the Vermont dairy judging
team were Cole Goodhue, Fairfield; Maggie
Kirby, East Montpelier; Addy Parsons,
Weybridge; and Jacob Patenaude, Holland.
All earned a spot on the state team for their
outstanding individual scores in University of
Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H dairy judging
events this past year.
The national dairy judging contest was
held Oct. 3 in conjunction with the World
Dairy Exposition. A total of 28 teams took
part, judging five cow and five heifer classes
and providing oral reasons for their placements in five of those classes.
Vermont placed 19th overall and 13th for
oral reasons. The team came in 14th in
Ayrshire, 17th in Brown Swiss and 24th in

Guernsey breed classes. In both Holsteins and


Jerseys they placed 18th.
Cole Goodhue was 21st high individual
scorer and 24th in oral reasons in the Brown
Swiss classes. Addy Parsons finished in 27th
place overall judging Ayrshires.
On the two days preceding the competition, practice sessions for all teams were held
at five area farms including the Hoards
Dairyman Magazines registered Guernsey
farm. The 4-Hers also toured the National
Dairy Shrine Museum and Nasco International
in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin.
The trip was funded in part by the State
4-H Foundation and Poulin Grain. Each team
member also received a K. Stewart Gibson
award, given in memory of the long-time
UVM Extension dairy specialist, to help offset trip expenses. Elizabeth and Ricky Hall of
East Montpelier coached the team and accompanied them to the national contest.

Community Raises $40,000 for


CVHHH at Seasons of Life Fundraiser

Over 200 members


of the central Vermont
community gathered
in October at National
Life in Montpelier to
celebrate the 17th year
of Seasons of Life,
CVHHHs
annual
fashion show, dinner,
and live auction.
Seasons of Life is CVHHHs largest fundraiser, and this year was another resounding
success, with an estimated $40,000 in net
proceeds raised. Guests include donors,
CVHHH staff, management, and board members, as well as community members and
local healthcare partners.
Kristin Carlson, Chief Communications,
Brand, and Marketing Executive at Green
Mountain Power, was the evenings Emcee.
Kristin, a native Vermonter and graduate
of U-32 High School, did a terrific job engaging the audience and entertaining our guests,
says Kim Farnum, Community Relations &
Development Manager. Kristin shared the
stage with Tom Beardsley, a 30-year veteran
of WDEV Radio and Duxbury resident, who
lent his expertise as the nights Guest
Auctioneer.

Sandy Rousse, CPA, CVHHHs President


& Chief Executive, shared a few words with
the audience about the importance of collaboration and care coordination among local
providers.
Its more important than ever, she said,
that our local healthcare and social service
providers continue to communicate, collaborate, and provide a true continuum of care for
all central Vermonters. Seasons of Life gives
us the opportunity to showcase many of the
individuals and organizations that contribute
to achieving this goal.
The support from the community was evident. The event was organized entirely by a
volunteer committee of central Vermonters.
45 models representing many of the 23 towns
served by CVHHH showcased fashion donated by 22 local vendors. The New England
Culinary Institute catered the meal, and
cadets from Norwich University greeted
guests as they entered the ballroom.
CVHHH especially appreciated Spotlight
Sponsors Carmen Beck, Cody ChevroletCadillac, and Gardner Insurance Services,
and for the community in making this such a
successful event.

of need. We can still name the wonderful


CVHHH staff who allowed us to say goodbye
to our mother and father, some five months
apart. The care was not all about the medicine, but also about pure compassion.
With the support of our interdisciplinary
hospice team, the five brothers could focus on
spending quality time with their parents, who
were cared for at the family home in Barre.
The sons were even able to be by their parents bedsides when the couple died, some
five months apart. When we asked the brothers to serve as honorary chairs, they answered
with a quick, resounding yes.

Emily OConnor of Barre and RIT Theme Park Enthusiasts


Sweep Awards in National Engineering Competition

Six members of Rochester Institute of


Technologys Theme Park Enthusiasts,
including Emily OConnor, made a clean
sweep in Orlando, Fla., by winning every
award in a national competition to design
amusement park rides.
The Ryerson Invitational Thrill Design
Competition, hosted by Universal Creative,
invited teams from four colleges to create
theme park rides or make modifications to
existing rides.
The teams had three challenges to finish.
Two tasks were given prior to the competition, although one was altered after they
arrived in Orlando. One task had them retrofitting a Ferris wheel to keep children in open
gondolas, one had them design a rollercoaster
that cant go faster than 40 mph, and one task
had them redesign the Teacups ride to make it
more appealing to teenagers.
They were judged for their innovativeness,
presentation skills and effectiveness.
There were awards for each challenge and
an overall award; the RIT team won all four.
And they were surprised with offers of internships by Universal Creative, the research and

development group responsible for designing


rides and attractions for Universal Parks &
Resorts theme parks.
The competition was established in 2014 to
build networks of students with professional
interest in the attractions industry, said
Kathryn Woodcock, a competition judge and
director of the THRILL Laboratory and associate professor of human factors engineering/
ergonomics and safety at Ryerson.
The RIT team showed presentation flair,
an obvious passion for theme parks, great
teamwork and attention to detail in responding to the criteria for each challenge,
Woodcock said. It was an outstanding performance by a first-time competitor and all of
us look forward to seeing the RIT team as
they develop their talents and build opportunities in this exciting industry.
The competition was held Nov. 11-14 and
was held prior to the International Association
of Amusement Parks and Attractions annual
exposition there. The students made their
presentations to senior staff at Universal
Creative.

Interesting and Creative Stuff


By Students at Spaulding High School

Whitney Renaud: Its all about balance

he proverbial fruit has stayed


close to the tree for junior
Whitney Renaud.
Both her parents are accountants so
take a wild stab at Whitneys best subjects. Good guess: algebra and calculus.
Stuff like that are definitely my
favorites, she says. They help me
with logical thinking, solving puzzles, and getting ready
for the trials and errors of life.
Speaking of the trials of life, Whitneys position as
co-head of the community services committee with the
Student Council gives her plenty of firsthand experience.
Such as helping out the childrens unit at the hospital
with a recent collection drive of puzzles, toys, and coloring books, etc. Our last Council drive collected 200
items for those kids, she said.
Such as helping organize the Councils weekly church
breakfast for Barre folks, or joining a large group of volunteers who organize the huge Spring into Summer
Fest at Barre Town school.
For all of us on the Council, she says, it feels good
to give back, to help others. Plus we get to discover that
the people not as well off are more like you than you
thought.
However, Whitneys high school career is not entirely
about academics (shes number one in her class) and
community service. She made varsity soccer as a freshman and varsity basketball as a sophomore.
And come spring its all about tennis.
That was the most gratifying, she said. I went undefeated last year in the regular season. My hard work
really paid off.
Whitney, playing in the number 1 or 2 singles spot,
says its also gratifying to help the coach by working with
the new kids. Some of them have never had a racquet in
their hands before, but theyre athletic and committed to
developing their games.
Between sports seasons Whitney steps off center stage
and heads back stage with the Drama Club, where she
helps out by sewing costumes, curtains, and whatever
else needs doing.
Its all about balance, she says. I try to find time to
do a little bit of everything. Most of the time its academics first and I have to give up other things to make it
work.

Simeon Davis: Proving yourself


one life at a time

want to make something of


myself, said senior Simeon
Davis about his goal of playing
D-I college football. I want to prove
that a Vermont kid can play.
At 65 and 260 pounds, Simeon is
certainly the right size for his dream
schools of Baylor, Ole Miss, or
Liberty, but hes already done a pretty
good job of proving himself.
He saved a mans life this past September.
Heres how. Simeon and his dad were on the BarreMontpelier Road and came upon a two-car collision that
sent both cars spinning into the river at the railroad crossing by the Rubber Bubbles store.
One car was already filing up with water and the guy
inside was stuck, Simeon said. We climbed down the
bank and with my dad directing me I climbed into the
river and broke his back window with a big rock.
Fortunately the guy, who was pretty bloody, was conscious enough to climb into the back seat where I was
able to pull him out through the broken window.
The second car, which spun into the river on the opposite side of the road was in less peril and the man and his
son were able to climb out on their own.
I felt like I grew up a little bit more that day, said
Simeon. I felt like I did well. I felt like I was willing to
risk my life for someone else even though I didnt know
the person.
When Simeon is not playing football or saving lives,
his softer side comes out.
That would be playing the piano or video games, working with Faith Community Church (with whom he went
on a mission trip to Lynchburg, Virginia), or helping out
with fundraisers, such as fixing up the Haunted House
this past Halloween.
But, he says, I also just like driving around with my
buds and my family.
Which, as we know, can lead to some mighty interesting adventures.

Sarah Rouleau: Deepening the meaning


of well-rounded

Tech Day:
Join us on Saturday, December 17 for Tech Day from
10:30-11:30. Bring your device or use one of our computers.
Ask any question of our specialist, volunteer Floyd Stuart. No
question is too small. FREE. Geared for adults. No need to
register, drop in and out.

But long before she enters the medical field in her dream job as a pediatrician, Sarah will continue with her
first like, which is helping people.
It is through her church that Sarah
does most of her good works.
At Saint Monicas she is a long-time altar server and
helps train youngsters coming up. Among the many
church events she volunteers for is her favorite, the massive Thanksgiving community dinner. Ive been doing
that for seven years, she says, and it just keeps getting
bigger and better.
As one might expect of someone hoping to be a doctor,
Sarahs academic passions tend toward science and
math.
Actually I love all my teachers and classes, she says,
but I especially love Honors Biology with Mr. LaPoint
and AP Calculus with Ms. Carter.
But wait. Theres a twist coming up. When shes not
devouring text books, shes writing short stories.
Inspired by her love of fiction, especially of the
Sherlock Holmes variety, Sarah has begun a mystery
series.
I love making stuff up, she says. This is about a boy
who gets stuck in his dreams and is transported back in
time. Basically hes a time traveler with one bizarre
adventure after another.
Each global trip by John demands she do plenty of
historical research. Her favorite time and place so far? I
simply love Detroit in the 1920s.
Sarahs high school career has yet more dimensions.
Sports wise, she plays a mean second base for the Tide
softball team. Club wise, shes been in the Math Club and
on the Scholars Bowl team for three years. (Her specialty? Random facts.) Musically, she plays tenor sax
for the school band.
And finally, she says, Just for fun, I like to play the
piano at home with my family.

Holiday Movie at the Gardens:


We are teaming up with the Gardens to play the movie
Christmas with the Kranks on their big screen. Based on the
book Skipping Christmas, this movie is full of laughs. We will
have light refreshments. Everyone welcome, you do not need
to be a Williamstown resident or have a library card to attend.
Tuesday, December 20 at 4 p.m. at the Gardens.

really like helping people, says


junior Sarah Rouleau, which is
why I want to be a doctor.

Zachary Bullock: Leading the charge

eople who regularly travel up


Trow Hill might recall watching a
large group of Boys Scouts and
JROTC students bustling around the
playground helping to make it one of
the cleanest and most widely used
playgrounds in the area.
Leading the charge of that massive
undertaking was junior Zachary
Bullock.
As both an Eagle Scout and JROTC squad leader he
supervised 15 comrades in the removal of 11 truckloads
of brush, replacing picnic tables, fixing fences, and putting a new roof on the shelter.
Thats what we do, he says. Were always trying to
make Barre a great place to live, work, and play.
A member of JROTC since 9th grade, Zachary is thinking of dropping the J by sticking with ROTC in college.
Norwich and a few schools in Maine are on his preferred
list.
His ultimate goal, he believes, is a career in engineering. Both my parents are civil engineers with the state so
Ive been thinking about that profession for a long
time.
With that in mind, he says hes veered off into math
and science at Spaulding, helped along greatly by two
teachers, his advisor and chemistry teacher, Mr.
McSweeney, and math teacher, Mr. Liff.
To improve his bi-lingual skills, a necessity in many
future careers, he works hard with another favorite,
Spanish teacher Ms. Strong.
Zacharys sports inclinations veer toward track and
field, specifically javelin, discus, and the 100-meter
sprint.
Hes also been a trumpet player with the school band
since his freshman year. Thats an apt instrument for
someone like Zachary whos earned many of his stripes
by leading the charge.

ROBERT E. AMMEL JR., 62, died Tuesday


morning, Nov. 29, 2016, in a tragic automobile
accident. Bob was born Nov. 22, 1954, in
Norwich, Vermont, the son of Robert E. Sr. and
Corabelle (Brown) Ammel. He graduated from
Hartford High School Class of 1973 and went
on to receive an associate degree in Agricultural
Studies from the Vermont Technical College in Randolph
Center, Vermont. Boomer was as he was fondly known
throughout his childhood by family and friends. He married
Jane Spaulding on June 1, 1974, in Wilder, Vermont. They
began raising their family in the late-1970s while their lives
were centered around his love of dairy farming. Their farming ended when he participated in the U.S. Government
Whole Herd Buy-Out Program in 1987. After that, Bob had
many jobs in sales, servicing places all over New England
until 2003 when he began his career with Irving Oil. He was
always very proud of his achievements within the oil and
propane business. Bob was well-known and respected as an
extremely hard worker and dedicated employee, but he was
so much more than that. He would never pass by a home
without sharing where the fuel pipe might be located or what
type of furnace or boiler was in the home. His family was
everything to him, he loved spending time with his grandchildren, especially when he could spend time and play
with them at his beloved Camp Goshen! Camp Goshen
was his pride and joy, and his special family retreat. He
loved cooking over the open fire an abundance of food for
any crowd. Bob could do anything with his hands, including
working with his dad building his pride and joy barn home
in the last three years. Bob umpired countless high school
and Legion baseball games, officiated Vermont high school
football games, and refereed youth hockey games. Bob spent
a lot of time following his childrens games and events
across the country and Canada. He was so very generous in
giving to his community. He loved playing Santa for numerous holiday events, including The Polar Express in White
River Junction, Vermont.
PAUL E. BARIL, 89, of Bolster
Road, passed away on Monday, Dec.
5, 2016, at the Central Vermont Medical Center
in Berlin, with his family at his bedside. Born
in Barre Town on July 13, 1927, he was the son
of the late Lucien and Lea (Bellemre) Baril.
Paul attended elementary school in a small
schoolhouse on East Hill and later attended Spaulding High
School. After his schooling, he served his country proudly in
the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954, where he received the
National Congressional Medal of Honor from the

NATALIE H. BEATTIE, 93, a longtime Waterbury resident, passed away surrounded by love on Sunday evening,
Dec. 4, 2016, at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin. Born
in Guildhall on Jan. 14, 1923, she was the daughter of the
late Irving Jim Beattie and Eva (Mahurin) Beattie. Natalie
grew up in Maidstone and was a 1940 graduate of Groveton
(New Hampshire) High School. She continued her education, pursuing a degree in nursing at the Mary Hitchcock
School of Nursing, when her studies were interrupted after
she acquired tuberculosis. As she spent time recovering at
the Vermont Sanatorium in Pittsford, Natalie studied and
became a licensed X-ray technician, a vocation she enjoyed
and practiced for over four decades, most recently at the
Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury from which she retired
in 1986. Social and energetic, Natalie was a longtime volunteer for the Red Cross blood drives in Waterbury, attended
the Waterbury Congregational Church where she was very
active in Circle II, and was a member of the Blush Hill
Country Club. Natalie had a variety of interests throughout
the years that included knitting, skiing, playing golf, reading,
family genealogy, and she was a history buff. In addition,
she loved flowers, enjoyed music, particularly jazz and classical, and for many years enjoyed winter vacationing in the
sunny, warm climate of Green Valley, Arizona, with her sis-

VSECU Becomes First U.S.-Based Credit Union to Earn


Membership in the Global Alliance for Banking on Values

VSECU, a member-owned cooperative and not for profit


credit union for everybody in Vermont, today announced it
has been accepted as a member of the Global Alliance for
Banking on Values (GABV), an independent network of values-based banks, banking cooperatives, credit unions, microfinance institutions, and community development banks from
across the world.
VSECU is the first credit union in the U.S. to earn membership in the global organization, joining 35 other financial
institutions in a joint commitment to use finance to promote
sustainable social, environmental, and economic development. GABV members work together to ensure that banking
is a healthy and productive system of society and to develop
a positive, viable alternative to the current banking system.
We are excited to welcome VSECU, as we grow our network of like-minded, values-based financial institutions,
said Dr. Marcos Eguiguren, Executive Director of GABV.
Our members are proven to be independent and profitable
organizations that deliver long-term benefits for people and
the environment. They play a crucial role in the transition to
a more sustainable global economy and advance positive
change in the banking sector.
By focusing on values and impact, we are excited to be
part of a larger movement of values-based financial institutions that endeavor to reach above and beyond industry
norms, helping to build a framework for financial prosperity
that makes a meaningful impact on our employees, our members, and our Vermont communities, said Rob Miller, CEO
of VSECU. This important membership enables us to tap
into resources that help us learn, discover and participate with

top minds in our financial eco-system.


To earn membership in GABV, financial institutions must
have a values-driven agenda at the core of their mission and
adhere to the organizations Principles of Sustainable Banking.
Those principles include a triple bottom line (people, planet,
prosperity) approach; grounding in communities and serving
the real economy; transparency; long term resiliency; focus
on and deep knowledge of clients; and a values-based organizational culture.
VSECUs innovative initiatives such as Co-op Capital,
which invests in cooperative organizations, unique products
such as its VGreen Energy Savings Loans, and collaborative
partnerships with organizations like equity crowdfunding
platform Milk Money and co-working space The Lighting Jar
contributed to its selection as a GABV member.
Under its vision to inspire a movement that brings people
together to empower possibilities for greater financial, environmental, and social prosperity, the entire organization is
empowered to think about impact over activity to maximize
the positive effect on members lives and Vermont communities.
By joining this global values-based banking movement,
we have greater resources to leverage as we work to increase
our local impact in a sustainable way, added Miller. This
relationship will help guide our efforts to put finance to work
for meaningful social impact for our members, employees,
and all Vermonters, and help us demonstrate the value of a
model that puts people before profit and invests in the financial well-being of our members and communities.

The Next Healthcare Victim? Quite


Possibly You

Editor,
A healthcare crisis is coming down the road at very high
speed. Getting rid of the ACA (Obamacare) is one of our new
presidents top priorities. That will end subsidized health
insurance under the ACA, and the ACAs expansion of
Medicaid. Millions of people, including many, many thousands of Vermonters, will rapidly become unable to afford
trips to doctors and hospitals. Medicare, already too expensive for many seniors, is also looking at reform to make it
even less useful.
None of the alternatives being tossed around will help these
people much. Buying insurance across state lines? Not helpful
when you cant afford the premiums. Expanding the use of
Health Savings Accounts? Not helpful to people who dont
have the income to fund the accounts, and the tax benefits
mean nothing to people with incomes so low they pay little to
no income taxes.

If you are unemployed, disabled, or a member of the working poor, youre already in serious danger of being unable to
get healthcare. If you are working and not quite poor, you are
next. Thats a certaintyits simply a matter of time before
rising health care costs, stagnant wages and the replacement
of good jobs with bad jobs drops you into the growing mass
of people unable to get the healthcare that you and your family need.
Clearly the libertarian/conservative movementthose
largely well educated, well dressed, affluent people who think
that government should ignore those who are not as fortunateintends to drastically reduce the supports available to
ordinary Americans. They spend an amazing amount of
money and effort convincing the people that government concern for its citizens health and well being is a horrible thing.
But they can only do that if the majority of people let them.
But we are still a democracy. Its our town, our county,
our state and our country. And our means all of us.
Its time to do something if you care about yourself, your
family, your friends and neighbors. Voting is necessary, of
course, but it will take more to stop the systematic dismantling of public support. Find a political party and become
active. Attend the meetings, choose the leaders, become a
leader yourself. Find a local group that supports your interests
and join it. Speak up when people attack public programs.
And for Petes sake, tell your legislators how you feel about
this.

For the Love of Spock


1/2

A couple of weeks ago, my wife informed me that she had


a conversation with Comcast while I was at work. Without
consulting me, she drastically altered our cable agreement.
Suddenly, we have a fraction of the channels we had before.
Now we have the networks and little else.
Kelly, I exclaimed, thank you! This will absolutely
make our lives better.
Giving up cable hasnt been a sacrice at all. The truth
is: I dont watch a single scripted show thats on television
right now.
However, I am watching one old TV show these days.
Star Trek.
Growing up, I dismissed Star Trek as irredeemably geeky
the television equivalent of Dungeons & Dragons. I was
at-out wrong. When my wife bought the 50th Anniversary
DVD box set, I became hooked.
The original Star Trek series isnt just good for the sake
of nostalgia. It isnt just good by 60s standards. It isnt just
good by sci- standards. It is an excellent program by any
standard.
Part of what makes Star Trek great is Leonard Nimoys
unique character Mr. Spock.
For the Love of Spock is a documentary about Mr.
Spock made by Leonard Nimoys son.
It is half about Mr. Spock and half about the late Leonard
Nimoys life. The lm is sentimental and unfocused, but ultimately it is educational and enjoyable for Trekkies. Even
brand new Trekkies like me.
A diverse group of interviewees (including Jason Alexander, JJ Abrams, and Neil Degrasse Tyson) share their
memories of Star Trek and explain what Mr. Spock meant
to them.
For some, he represents nobility. For some, science. Some
love Spock because he represents the ultimate outsider a
half-breed alien at war with the two sides of himself.
In old interviews, Nimoy explains that his goal wasnt to
portray Spock as an emotionless drone. He played Spock as
a disciplined man who is always working to keep his human

emotions in check.
Apparently, Leonard Nimoy was an unusually sensible
celebrity. When Star Trek was picked up by NBC in 1966,
Nimoy was eager to squeeze every penny out of his fame
while it lasted. He recorded several albums of hideously
dated-sounding pop music. And he ew to New York on
weekends to do talk shows, variety shows, commercials, or
anything that earned a paycheck.
It wasnt a surprise to Nimoy when Star Trek was cancelled after three low-rated seasons. He began earning a
meager living as a theater actor, doing plays in San Diego,
Milwaukee, or wherever he could get work.
It was a big surprise to Nimoy when Star Trek came roaring back to life. In the early 70s, Star Trek began running in
syndication. A new generation of kids and nerds discovered
the once-unpopular program. And now they could watch
the original 79 episodes over and over.
Star Trek was transformed from a forgotten op into a
beloved part of our pop-culture universe. I dont know why
it was a surprise to Leonard Nimoy; to me its obvious.
Star Trek is a rst-rate show. It has intriguing, suspenseful, Twilight Zone-esque plots. It has interesting, lovable
characters. And it has a sense of humor.
I feel grateful because I am getting to do what Trekkies
my age can only dream about: I am watching the entire series from beginning to end for the rst time.
The Golden Age of television drama (Sopranos, Mad
Men) is behind us. But thats okay. Thanks to Netix and
Blu-ray, we can enjoy the great shows of the past. And save
money on cable to boot.

Reisss Pieces

By Judy Reiss

ack when I was a child, you went


to the doctor that your parents
picked. And as far as I can remember, no one asked you if you liked
him, and it was always a him. Yep, you
went to this local doctor whether you
liked him or not. But as I grew older, I
realized that you didnt have to trust your life to a doctor that
you didnt likeor trust!
When I moved to Vermont, it was the day I graduated from
college. And it was only a short time later that I moved to
Waitsfield. I dont remember if I actually searched for a doctor or not. But when I did, I realized that Dr. Quimby was the
resident doctor who everybody liked and trusted, so naturally
I went to him, too. I have to tell you that Dr.Quimby had retired to Waitsfield and only decided to accept patients sort of
as a whim because when he retired it was because he wanted
the peace and quiet of Vermont and no longer practiced being a Dermatologist. And so he became a legend in Central
Vermont. Was he a great doctor? I dont know, but I do know
he took care of the entire Reiss family for years and not only
that, he made house calls! When he passed away after giving
years of service, some good doctors took his place and a few
that werent so good! But by then I was older and realized that
I could drive and if any of us needed or wanted another doctor
more and more were also coming to Central Vermont.
Jumping way ahead, let me tell you about my adventures
with doctors, at least some of them! Quite a while ago I was
out walking and kept getting pains in my chest. I didnt think
much about it but my daughter Polly found out and she immediately told me that I had to go see Dr. Sampson in Stowe,
which I did. And he immediately sent me to see Dr. Torkelson
at Dartmouth Hitchcock, who told me I needed a few stints in
my heart. He put a few in and I immediately fell in love with
him and Dr. Sampson. I saw Dr. Sampson for a few years until
he had to move because of family problems. And believe it or
not, although Dr. Torkelson is semi-retired and has moved to
Newport, he agreed to keep me as a patient and I look forward
to going to see him, at least, once a year.
I am not going to tell you how many doctors have moved
because it is dull even for me. Just know that with all my dumb
physical problems I have seen lots. And it was really an eye
opener for me that when I was in the hospital last year and all
my children were there. Polly fired one of the doctors who was
supposedly caring for me. Truthfully, I dont remember much
but I do remember how surprised I was that you could actually
fire a doctor who you think is not doing the right thing! So,
that taught me a terrific lesson. If you dont like your doctor,
you can leave him or her and find some one you like, or more
importantly, trust. And in my 77 years I have only done that
three times, I think.
I have discussed this option with most of my current doctors and each one agrees that if you dont like your doctor, for
whatever reason, you need to be gone from his practice and
find someone that you do like. It is also my opinion if you
dont like him or her for whatever reason they probably dont
like you either.
Right now, I have a whole bevy of doctors I have to see,
probably on what you probably would call a regular basis.

And number one on my list is my general practitioner, Dr.


Laura Felsted. Again, my daughter Polly helped me find her
and she and I fit together like a hand in a glove. Without her,
I dont think I would be able to get out of bed. But she is also
just the captain of my health team! I see another cardiologist
who is willing to work with Dr. Torkelson, who is just too
far away for an emergency. His name is Dr. Muhler and I am
crazy about him. Dr. Aeros is the superhero who replaced my
knee and now is working with me on other options about my
other knee. He also has fixed my hand that arthritis has taken
over. And just by happenstance I got an appointment with Sarah Britton who is a PA who took x-rays of my back and then
explained in detail what was wrong and what we could do to
help and make walking possible. Needless to say, I loved her.
Although it is difficult to share with you, my dentist of 45
years is retiring, too. But the good news is as I wept at the
though of him leaving, I met the new dentist who I now will
be seeing. Dr. Jerome is a young, very young dentist and I
am thrilled with her. And although I dont ever want to hurt
Steves feelings, I now love her and have to thank him for
finding me such a skilled and terrific woman. Considering I
have the worst teeth in the world, I think he just decided to
give her the worst and see what happens!
I certainly hope I havent forgotten any other doctor that
I see because if I see them I already have put them through
congeniality test and will be with them for life. Oh, I actually
forgot someone who is unbelievably good and that is Dr. Morley who is an amazing retinol gist who practices out of Boston
and the Cape. He also spends his vacations going around the
world and giving free clinics for the poor. But over the years
he has performed so many terrible procedures on me and his
ability is not just amazing, he is the gentlest man I ever knew.
I have been to other eye doctors who did procedures that hurt
so much that I didnt think I would live through them. And
when I started to go to Dr. Morley, he did many of the same
procedures but the difference was he tried very hard not to hurt
me and when he did, he would help me by holding my hand.
And believe me that works.
Now this column wasnt supposed to be the medical history
of my life but a firm recommendation of what to do or not to
do about your doctor or doctors. First and foremost, we all
know that sometime in your life you are going to have to see
a doctor. And unfortunately, as you get older you have to see
more than one. And there isnt anyone more important to you,
other than your family, than the doctor. So pick and choose
carefully and remember if your gut or your brain or your heart
tells you that you just dont like him or her, leave and dont
look back! This person is too important to your quality of life
to suffer, especially when you can fix it yourself. And dont let
your children influence your decision. Quite recently I went to
see a new doctor and when I left his office, I told Malcolm and
Polly that I didnt like him and wouldnt be going back. And
they both said they thought he was good. And my response to
them, then you go see him because I wont be going.
We all know that Christmas is just around the corner, so
relax, wrap till you drop and enjoy every minute of this wonderful holiday season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

IRS, Partners Urge Strong Passwords Help Protect


Identities at Tax Time and Beyond

The Internal Revenue Services and


its partners, in the fight against identity theft, urge computer users to
strengthen their passwords. The password serves as the first line of defense
to stop hackers and identity thieves
from accessing your computer, mobile
phone and other internet-accessible
devices. The IRS, state tax agencies
and the tax professional industry are
asking for your help in their effort to combat identity theft and
fraudulent tax returns. Working in partnership with you, we
can make a difference. Thats why we launched a public
awareness campaign that we call Taxes. Security. Together.
Weve also launched a series of security awareness tips that
can help protect you from cybercriminals.
Here are a few basic steps to making passwords better and
stronger:
1. Add password protections to all devices. You should use
a password to protect any device that gives you that opportunity. Not only your computer, tablet or mobile phone but also
your wireless network. The password is your first line of
defense.
2. Change all factory password settings. If your device
comes with factory password settings, for example the camera
on your laptop, change it immediately.
3. Longer is better. A password should be a minimum of
eight digits but 10 to 12 is even better. It should be a combination of upper case and lower case letters, numbers and special
characters. Do not use your name or birthdate.

4. Do not repeat passwords. These days, people often have


multiple, password-protected accounts. Do not use the same
password repeatedly. Should a thief steal your password, he
immediately will have access to other important accounts.
Use different passwords, especially on important financial or
tax accounts.
5. Use two-factor authentication options. Many social
media and financial institutions now give you the option of
setting up a two-factor or two-step authentication process. A
two-factor process involves a security code being sent to your
registered mobile phone. This means if a thief manages to
steal your user name and password, he will be blocked from
accessing your accounts.
6. Consider a password manager. One option for keeping
track of your passwords on multiple accounts and getting help
in creating strong passwords is to use a password manager.
Some reputable companies offer free or low-cost versions of
their products. See if a password manager might be right for
you.
The IRS, state tax agencies and the tax industry joined as
the Security Summit to enact a series of initiative to help
protect you from tax-related identity theft in 2017. You can
help by taking these basic steps.
As the Tax Program Coordinator here at Capstone
Community Action, 20 Gable Place, Barre; I receive notices
all year about tax issues that will affect our community. I hope
these articles can help us all to keep up with some of the
changes and therefore, have a better tax experience. If you
need more information about these tax subjects, or others, let
me know at lsudhoff@capstonevt.org. Laura Sudhoff

Dear Joyce,
The first thought that comes to mind is having a discussion
with Mom about having your own party instead of going to all
the other ones. Plan an informal pot luck party where everyone brings a dish to share and if you want to have a gift
exchange, do a Yankee Gift Swap. Involve your Mom in the
planning and which guests to invite.
If you think a pot luck wont work, here are a few other
suggestions; order pizza or sandwiches, have a cocktail party
with simple offerings like cheese and crackers, dips and chips,
have guests bring a dessert to share. There are numerous ways
to simplify your role in preparations so take advantage of as
many as you can.
Have a special holiday season with your mom,
Grace

appy holidays everyone! The questions being answered


in this column relate to the coming holidays, what
gifts to give and how to help make them enjoyable for
everyone.
Dear Grace,
I have a bit of a dilemma about what to give my uncle for
Christmas. He has dementia and we always have given him
novels to read in the past or a gift certificate to a book store.
My aunt says he isnt really able to read anymore.
Help,
Mary
Dear Mary,
Even though your uncle can no longer read novels the way
he used to, he may still retain his love of books. Look for a
book that is mostly photos of something or somewhere he
used to enjoy. Popular books at Project Independence include
scenes from VT, old railroad or granite industry photos, farming are a few ideas to start you off. Another idea is a gift of
his favorite food, beverage or candy. Have a discussion with
your aunt about what he may want, need or enjoy. Remember,
the best gift you can give to both of them is the time you
spend with them at this special time of year.
Have fun,
Grace

Looking for gift suggestions for family/friends with dementia? Always check with the caregiver for suggestions, wants,
needs, etc. Listed below are some items Project Independence
uses:
-Music of almost any kind (music therapy and music in
general is proven to provide a satisfying, enjoyable and
therapeutic activity for someone with dementia)
-Fidget Blanket (for those folks who have restless hands
and need to be doing something)
-Baby doll with easily removed clothing (for someone who
spent their life caring for children and grandchildren, having
a baby to hold is soothing)
-Clothing that is easy to put on and remove (no buttons and
possibly no pullovers, pants with elastic waist work well)
-Stuffed animals that are soft and cuddly
-Scarves, hats and gloves or mittens, as these are items easily misplaced or left behind
-Coloring pages/books with washable markers or gel pens

Dear Grace,
Every year the holidays get more difficult for me to enjoy.
I care for my mom who is disabled with severe arthritis and is
in constant pain. We both get invited to several family parties
and of course she wants to go to all of them. This results in
both of us being exhausted and leaves her in excruciating
pain. Any suggestions for improvements on this would be
appreciated.
Thanks,
Joyce

The Origins of the 9th Chakra Activation Technique

By Rosalene Bussiere
s a Healing Arts Practitioner I look
for blocked areas in the energy field
that is restricting the flow of energy
to the physical body causing the physical
disorder. Thus, leading me into a new but
old World of healing modality, the 9th Chakra.
As you read below you will understand the
history of mans and my work the 9th Chakra Activation
Technique.
Sacral Cranial work was nearly extinct due to the rise of
anti-Buddhist factions in Tibet. Due to these factions the
monks and their healing practices which were passed down
orally from deeply devoted Tibetan Monk teachers to apprentice was nearly lost. For thousands of years the monks knew
that applying manipulation of the sacral cranial area reconnected us to our great healing capacities by releasing pressure
on the brain steam; the medulla. They also knew that the
human body was not designed flawless by the gods.
Recognizing that when a fetus is being created in her mothers
womb all her joints are also being full formed and functional
except one; the Sub-Occipital joint.
It is common knowledge that the neck and head is not fully
formed after birth therefore this joint is highly probable to be
dislocated from the beginning of life. Hence why an Infants
head must be protected from injury until the child is old
enough to support its own head. The monks knew that this
work has been proven to alleviate great suffering from minor
to chronic conditions and promote a sense of well-being and
that the sub-occipital joint needed to be corrected and maintained throughout a persons life in order for transformation of
the human experience to happen on my levels, whether
physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
Based on this knowledge many religions and cultures have
quoted similar connections regarding the expansion of man
and the physical defect that all humans share; a under developed joint the sub-occipital joint. Take the Ancient God Titan
Atlas who carried the weight of the world on his shoulders.
This was said to be punishment from Zeus, the king of the
gods. Atlas would have to stand and carry the heavens on his
shoulders. Perhaps from keeping the world from sinking; a
metaphor I believe to be based on cranial vertebral instability
(dislocated joint). Therefore, the neck structure does not
have the ability to support the skull, which can then sink into
the brain stem blocking the normal flow of cerebral spinal
fluid leading to issues related to autonomic nervous system
failing.
Indian Gurus call the Sub-occipital joint the Mouth of
God or the 9th Chakra. The 9th Chakra is also a lineage of
sacred knowledge passed down through a disciplined technique and a deep understanding of attuned intuition. So what
is the 9th Chakra?
The 9th Chakra has been referred to as the Mouth of God
and its opening is exactly at the back of the neck where the

skull lays on top of the spine. It connects to the Medulla


Oblongata and the reticular formation of the brain and spinal
cord as well as the Silver Cord (spinal cord) in the Crown that
connects to the Threefold Founder Flame also known as the
Universal Consciousness. This area esoterically has been
called the Golden Chalice for it is the Occipital Cup that holds
the Cosmic Intelligence or Wisdom. It is a literal brain rewiring (spiritual body activation) in order to hold and be receptive to the Golden Chalice of Universal Knowledge which
is transmitted through the Silver Cord (Spinal Cord) in the
Crown once Kundalini activation has taken place.

Volunteers Needed for Holiday


Meals and Gifts for Seniors

Each year a group of amazing volunteers from Central


Vermont deliver meals, gifts and groceries on Christmas Day
to seniors in need in your community. Many of these seniors
live alone, with no gifts or a hot and tasty meal to enjoy on the
holiday. Central Vermont Council on Aging is again asking
community members to volunteer to help deliver meals and
gifts to elders this holiday.
If you and or your family want to join us for a wonderful
holiday volunteer opportunity, we are looking for drivers to
deliver meals, gifts and groceries to seniors on Christmas Day
morning for about 2 hours. Volunteers will meet at The Galley
in downtown Barre to pick up items to deliver to assigned
seniors in the area.
If you prefer, we also need volunteers to help wrap gifts for
seniors on Thursday, December 22 and Friday December 23.
Gift wrapping will take place at the Central Vermont Council
on Aging offices located at 59 N. Main Street, 2nd Floor,
Barre VT, whenever you are available between 9am-3pm.
If you are interested in giving your time to elders this holiday season, please contact the Central Vermont Council on
Aging. You may email us at cvcoa@cvcoa.org, call us at
(802)479-0351, or go online at www.cvcoa.org/volunteer to
sign up. We will need your contact information, including
your name, address, email address and phone number for you
to volunteer. The Council will send you the details and information you will need in advance.
Central Vermont Council on Aging welcomes financial
donations for this holiday giving event, or for our many services for seniors. Contributions may be mailed to the above
address, or made online at www.cvcoa.org/donate.

Rachel Kling, Psychotherapist


I believe we all crave deep,
authentic connections, but
throughout our lives have
developed negative patterns
and defenses that make this
difcult. As a psychotherapist,
my job is to develop a safe,
authentic relationship. Through
relationship, we can achieve selfunderstanding and through this
self understanding create the life
we want and become the person
we want to be. I strive to facilitate self-awareness that will
allow my clients to navigate an uncertain world from a place of
strength and condence.
In a safe therapeutic partnership I can help you heal pain,
improve relationships and nd purpose and meaning in your life.
Please contact me to set up an appointment. I look forward to
hearing from you.

SHOP LOCAL FOR THE HOLIDAYS | GIFT IDEAS

Last-minute holiday shopping tips


oliday shopping season typically
begins the day after Thanksgiving and extends all the way to
Christmas Eve. While thats a
considerable amount of time for shoppers to
find gifts for everyone on their shopping list,
many people will still find themselves putting
holiday shopping off until the last minute.

In certain ways, last-minute holiday shopping is easier than ever.


Thanks to online retailers who can ship products overnight, men
and women who delay their holiday shopping have more options at
their disposal than they did before the arrival of the Internet. And
unlike the days of yore when the best deals were largely exclusive to
Black Friday, some shoppers find that competition between online
retailers and traditional brick-and-mortar stores is so great that deals
can be found regardless of when they begin shopping. But while
waiting until the last minute to begin holiday shopping may not be
as risky as it used to be, shoppers may still benefit by sticking to
certain strategies so they can find the perfect gifts without breaking
the bank.
Stay within your budget. Even last-minute shoppers have holiday
shopping budgets. But it can be harder for last-minute shoppers to
stick to their budgets because they have less time to comparison
shop and hunt for deals. As the holiday shopping season winds
down, resist the temptation to go over budget. If a gift you had in
mind is available but more than you can spend, look for something

else. Overspending on holiday shopping in December is a recipe


for debt in January, and no shopper wants to begin the new year
weighed down by consumer debt.
Shop local. National chains and big box retailers are renowned
for rolling out great deals during the holiday season, but such stores
may have very limited or unimpressive inventory left by the time
last-minute shoppers begin shopping. Local retailers are often incapable of slashing prices as significantly as their larger competitors,
and that may mean they have more extensive inventories available
throughout the holiday shopping season. In addition, shoppers who
stick with local retailers wont have to pay shipping costs to ensure
items arrive on time.
Shop during off-peak hours. Shopping during off-peak hours can
help last-minute shoppers make efficient use of the limited time they
have to buy gifts for their loved ones. Visit stores early in the morning or late at night, or schedule a midweek afternoon shopping trip
so you arent spending what little time you have left waiting on lines
or hunting for parking.
Give something less traditional. Holiday gifts need not come from
stores. Rather than spending their time shopping for gifts for loved
ones who seemingly have it all, last-minute shoppers can give the
gift of a donation in their loved ones name. Last-minute shoppers
who want to give something more tangible can create a homemade
gift thats both unique and heartfelt. If your DIY skills are lacking,
give a loved one the gift of a night out on the town at your expense.
Shoppers who wait until the end of the holiday shopping season
to begin their searches for holiday gifts can still find great gifts
without going broke.

Did you know?


While it might be synonymous
with Santa Claus and cold
weather, the North Pole is actually much warmer than the South
Pole. Thats because the North
Pole sits at a lower elevation than
the South Pole, and it is located in
the middle of an ocean. The South
Pole, on the other hand, is located
on the continent of Antarctica,
which is covered in ice. But Santa fans mulling a trip to the North
Pole to visit jolly old St. Nick
might want to think otherwise, as
temperatures at the North Pole are
less than welcoming. Summertime temperatures at the North
Pole, for example, hover right at
the freezing point. In addition,
because of the way Earth rotates,
the North Pole experiences just
one sunrise and one sunset each
year. However, because the sun is
always above the horizon in the
summer and below the horizon in
the winter, the North Pole actually experiences 24 hours of sunlight in summer and zero hours
of sunlight in the winter. While
children in North America know
the North Pole as home to Santa
Claus, thats a relatively recent
addition to the legend of Santa
Claus, a story that some historians suggest traces its origins all
the way back to the third century.
Historians credit famed 19th century caricaturist and editorial cartoonist Thomas Nast with being
the first to link Santa Claus and
his workshop to the North Pole.
However, many Nordic countries
continue to say Santa Claus lives
in their territories.

Please Support Local Retailers this Holiday Season

By Bill Moore
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small
Business Saturday, Cyber-Monday and
Flannel Friday are all in the rearview
mirror. That does not mean, however,
that holiday shopping and the sales
associated with the holidays have
ended.
Whether you are shopping for
Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or
some other occasion like Festivus, it is
a good time to remember that our local economy is heavily
dependent on our local retailers. Shopping local will support
our local retailers, almost all of the small bricks and mortar,
mom and pop outlets that are heavily dependent on the last
quarter of the year.
Retail is a critical component of our local economy. How
important is it? The U.S. Census Bureau and Department of
Labor, tell us that the predominant sector in Washington
County is retail with 365 establishments. The 2014 county
payroll for retail was $1,181,200,500, second only to
Chittenden County. The average income for those 3,378
employed in retail in 2014 was $45,846, again second to
Chittenden County. Almost 11 percent of the workforce is
engaged in retail. In 2012 (the most recent year for which data
is available), total retail sales were $1,112,638,000. That
translates into $18,711 per capita.
While Washington County does have a fair share of national retail outlets, whether franchised or directly owned, the
overwhelming majority of retail outlets are small businesses.
The types of retail outlets in the county run the gamut from
Appliance and Electronic Stores, to Motor Vehicles and Parts
Dealers, to General Merchandise stores and everything in
between.
How important is December for retail purchases? The

MasterCard SpendingPulse reports that nationally, sales were


up 7.9 percent between Black Friday and Christmas Eve in
2015 compared to the same period in 2014. The MasterCard
SpendingPulse studies transaction and survey data on purchases made with credit cards, cash and checks. That figure
excludes sales of automobiles and gasoline.
Many shoppers like to take advantage of on-line opportunities. While there can be some great buys, there can be some
risks involved. How many times does the item ordered online not quite match what you were looking for? No matter
how fancy the website, it is doubtful that you can get a 3-D
view of the item. No matter how sophisticated the webmaster
is, there is little chance that you will be able to feel the item
and see if the material has the texture that you are looking for.
Does it have the weight and balance that you might need?
What is the return policy? Do you end up paying for shipping? Do you end up paying to ship an item back if it does not
meet your expectations? Speaking of returns, if the on-line
purchase is not what you had in mind, do you have time to
order something else and get it delivered in time for the holidays?
Virtually anything that you are looking for on-line can be
found locally. Spoiler Alert . . . most of the items that you
purchase on-line are available locally for about the same
price.
So think about supporting our local retailers. The walk
around our shopping areas in Barre, Montpelier, Berlin,
Waterbury, Northfield and elsewhere will definitely put you in
a holiday mood. Youll be supporting our local economy, and
think about how nice that holiday cheer will taste once you
get home and relax. The extra benefit from the exercise
earned is an added bonus.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, membership and Staff
of the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce I wish you all
the joy that this season brings.

Help Shelter Animals this Holiday


Season at Central Vermont
Humane Society

The final CVHS shelter event of the year, HOLIDAY


WITH THE ANIMALS, will be held on Saturday,
December 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can help spread
good will to shelter animals and fill their stockings. The
animals are dreaming of canned pet food, enrichment toys,
pet safe ice melt, financial support and, of course, being
adopted! (For the full wish list, visit www.centralvermonthumane.org.) HOLIDAY WITH THE ANIMALS is
a fun, family-friendly time with food and festivities.
Please bring donations and financial contributions to help
shelter animals so they can enjoy the holidays, too. Santa
and Mrs. Claus will be there, too.
In Central Vermont over 1,000 lost and homeless animals annually are helped at Central Vermont Humane
Society with physical, emotional and medical care. The
dedicated and compassionate volunteers and staff at the
Adoption Center at 1589 VT Rt. 14S in East Montpelier
provide for all of these needs until the animals can be
adopted to forever homes. The animals require medical
evaluations and treatments, daily care including thorough
cleaning of all animal rooms and canine condos, food
preparation multiple times daily, and evaluation/training
to prepare animals for adoption. To support all of these
actions CVHS reaches out to the community by having
on-site events, animal camps and groups for kids, a variety
of volunteer opportunities, adoption special events, rabies/
microchip clinics, dog training classes and various fundraising events.

Simple ways to dress up


your home for the holidays

he holiday season is rife with traditions


that focus on fun and family. One such
testament to the festive spirit of the holiday
season is the many homes and businesses
decorated with the lights and colors that have become
synonymous with the season.

Decorating for the holiday season can be time-consuming. While


decking the halls may not consume as much time as holiday shopping and wrapping presents, according to data from a 2013 American
Time Use Survey, interior and exterior decorating for the holidays
may consume anywhere from 2.5 to 3 hours per session.
Holiday decorating includes things as simple as setting up a
menorah or as complex as stringing lights on the exterior of a home.
Though elaborate displays can take hours to erect, time-crunched
holiday celebrants can still create festive, welcoming displays.
Hang holiday wreaths. Holiday enthusiasts without much time
to decorate can invest in a couple of holiday wreaths, which can
be dressed up as much or as little as celebrants prefer. If you do
not have the time to string lights on the house, wrap them around
wreaths hung in windows or hang the wreaths on a homes main
entrance. Celebrants who want to go a less traditional route can hang
wreaths made of holly, citrus fruits, ribbons, or any other greenery
instead of the more customary evergreen wreaths.
Decorate with ornaments. Ornaments are not exclusive to Christmas trees. Fill a vase or bowl with metallic ornaments and place it
in a prominent location, such as a busy hallway or the foyer of your
home. Hang ornaments on clear lament from the mantle or within
the main window of the house, where they can reect tree lights and
add sparkle.
Bring in more greenery. Drape evergreen boughs on staircase
handrailings or on the mantle, or use greenery to frame doorways.
The scent will be inviting and things instantly will look more festive.
Use throws and decorative pillows. Change the look of a room
with holiday-colored decor if you do not want to clutter the space
with knickknacks. A red and green blanket draped over the sofa can
give off a comforting holiday vibe.
Focus on the front door and entryway. Celebrants who do not
have the time to decorate their entire homes can create a warm,
inviting space by decorating their front doors and entryways. Place
greenery, bows, tinsel, lights, and winter-inspired accessories by
the front door so friends and family visiting for the season catch the
holiday spirit the moment they walk through the door.
Place LED candles in windows. Rather than contending with
twinkle lights and electric cords, homeowners can employ batteryoperated faux candles to create a homey appeal in windows and
hallways throughout their homes.

CELEBRATE TRADITIONS | THE WORLD

The history of holiday lights

oliday celebrants
employ holiday
lights in various
ways. Certain
individuals may be content
to hang lights on their
Christmas trees and call
their decorating complete.
Others may get their holiday
jollies by making sure each
square inch of their home is
covered in twinkling lights.
Still, other people prefer the
more subdued effect of lights
framing one picture window
of the house.

The tradition of Christmas lights stretches back to early modern


Germany when people used candles to decorate Christmas trees
in Christian homes. Those candles were harbingers of what would
come when electric lights replaced gas and other open ame illuminating devices that were commonplace prior to the 20th century.
Thomas Edison, the inventor of the rst successful practical light
bulb, also created the rst strand of electric lights that would be
used in holiday decorating. By 1880, Edison had standard incandescent light bulbs well sorted out and desired a way to better advertise
his invention, so he decided to make the most of the holiday season
and put his light bulbs on display. According to a 2003 article in
American Heritage magazine titled The Wizard of Your Christmas
Tree, Edison strung incandescent bulbs all around the compound
of his Menlo Park, NJ, laboratory. Edison constructed an eightmile underground wiring system in order to power this grand light
display. Because the laboratory was situated along the railroad that
passed between Manhattan and Philadelphia, thousands of people
were able to see the display.
The concept of electric holiday lights took a bit of time to catch

on. Edisons friend and associate Edward Johnson was tasked with
stringing together colored lights in 1882 and placing them on an evergreen tree. Johnson hand-wired 80 red, white and blue light bulbs.
In 1895, President Grover Cleveland requested the White House
family Christmas tree be illuminated by multi-colored electric light
bulbs.
In 1903, when General Electric began to offer pre-assembled kits
of holiday lights, stringed lights were reserved for the wealthy and
electrically savvy. For example, in 1903 a single string of electric
lights cost $12, or around $300 today.
It would take several more years before holiday lights became
a national tradition. On Christmas Eve 1923, President Calvin
Coolidge began the countrys celebration of Christmas by lighting
the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse located south of the
White House with 3,000 electric lights.
Today, illuminated strands of lights have become a large part of
holiday celebrations and have even been adopted for use during
various year-round events. Such lights

The 2017 Vermont Fish &


Wildlife Calendar is Available

Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and Vermont Life


Magazine announce the release of the colorful 2017 Fish &
Wildlife Calendar. Filled with stunning photos of Vermont
wildlife, including moose, snow geese, steelhead rainbow
trout, egrets, and whitetail deer, the calendar includes photos
by many well-known Vermont photographers including Roger
Irwin, Mary Holland, and Kurt Budliger.
This years calendar highlights Vermonts incredible wildlife watching opportunities, said Susan Warner, Vermont
Fish & Wildlifes director of outreach and education. The
spectacular cover photo by Ian Clark features a peregrine
falcon launching from a cliff that appears to fly right off the
page.
The calendar includes hunting, fishing and trapping season
dates for each month, along with beautiful photography. It
makes the perfect gift for any outdoor recreationist. These
calendars usually sell out early, so get your copy today.
Vermonts working landscape and thriving fish and wildlife populations are a testament to the foresight of citizens
who care about the states natural heritage, said Warner. The
fish and wildlife calendar is a yearlong celebration of
Vermonts commitment to conservation.
Vermont Fish & Wildlife calendars can be ordered online
from Vermont Lifes website at www.VermontLifeCatalog.
com or by phone (1-800-455-3399).

Shattered

By Kimberly Madura
You were like a broken piece of glass
I kept trying to hold close to my heart
All I could see was your sparkle
All I couldnt see were your sharp and jagged edges
Until one day all I was left holding
Was a bloody and torn heart
But I still didnt want to see your brokenness
So instead I blamed all those people
Who broke you
Who left you so shattered
But this too was an illusion
Only now can I see you for what you are, and chose to be
No sparkle at all in fact, only cheap broken plastic,
Made to sparkle only because you stood so close to my light.

whats that sound?


it is the sound of a shovel
scraping the walkway
as someone picks up the snow
oh no
snow
a foot of it
or more
on the yard
on the road
on my car
and the sound of that
shovel
worst than the sound of fingernails
scratching a chalkboard.

The House Is in Mourning.


By Rose Lee Craige

Boards creak out a psalm.


An old furnace thats been off for months
Begins to mumble.
Tears dribble from the bathroom sink
Where Id wash you
When you were too tired to swim.
It was two a.m. when what sounded like whimpering
Came teetering from the ceiling fan,
And a thumping sound jolted me out of blankets.
Halfway to the bottle
Before I remembered,
You could not be fed.

GO FIGURE

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figure given at


the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by
following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given
(that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the
numbers below the diagram to complete its blank
squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Best described as a number crossword, the task in


Kakuro is to fill all of the empty square, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of each horizontal lock
equals the number to its left, and the sum of each
vertical block equals the number on its top. No number may be used in the same block more than
once.

GIFT IDEAS | THE WORLD

Great gifts for seniors

very holiday
shopper ends up
with at least one
loved one on their
shopping list who they cant
seem to find anything for.
Some people seem to have
it all, while others may be
less than forthcoming with
regard to items they may
need or want.

Many seniors tend to fall into the latter category. Shopping for
holiday gifts for seniors can be difficult if shoppers dont know
what seniors want. But the following are a handful of gift ideas that
might make this holiday season that much more special for seniors.
Books
A 2015 survey from the Pew Research Center found that 69
percent of adults age 65 and over acknowledged reading at least
one book in the previous 12 months. That makes books a good bet
for shoppers who dont know what to get their 65-and-over loved
ones this holiday season. But shoppers might want to opt for more
traditional print books rather than e-books, as the survey found that
only 15 percent of readers age 65 and over had read an e-book in
the previous 12 months.
Gym membership
According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, more than 80 percent of adults do not meet the guidelines for
aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. That can be especially
troubling for seniors, who are at greater risk for osteoporosis, a
medical condition in which age-related tissue loss contributes to
brittle, fragile bones. Physical activity, including muscle-strengthening activities like weight training, can help combat osteoporosis.
Family members stuck on what to get aging loved ones may want

For Happy,
Hazard-Free
Holidays

es, its the holiday season once


again. What better time to remind
everyone of some simple things
you can do to keep you and your
children safe and sound?

to consider gifting a membership to a local gym. Many gyms offer


heavily discounted memberships to seniors, and such gyms may
even offer senior fitness classes at no additional cost.
Travel gifts
Many retirees love to travel, but not every senior has the means
to take off for parts unknown. A 2013 survey from the Transamerica
Center for Retirement Studies found that 25 percent of retirees
admitted they wished they would have saved more for retirement
travel. Holiday shoppers can light up seniors smiles by gifting
travel gifts this holiday season. One idea is to transfer airline miles
to an elderly loved one so he or she can get a free or discounted
flight. If thats not a possibility, some new luggage or a Global Hotel
CardTM sponsored by Orbitz, a gift card that can be redeemed at
70,000 hotels across the globe, is sure to please.
Family time
Shoppers who are especially stuck on what to get seniors for
Christmas can just resolve to spend more time with their elderly
loved ones. Many seniors genuinely have everything they need, and
such men and women may only want to spend more time with their
children and grandchildren. Make a New Years resolution to spend
more time with the special seniors in your life if the perfect gift is
eluding you.

First, if you have a tree, secure it well to


keep it from tipping. If it is a live tree, keep
it well-watered and away from floor heaters,
fireplaces, or other heat sources. If it is an artificial tree, make sure it is fire resistant. Keep
no more than three strands of lights linked
together on an extension cord and never use
electric lights on a metal tree or you could
be in for a shocking experience.
If there are children in the home, tinsel and small decorations
and bulbs should not be at the bottom of the tree. Its important to
prevent small children from reaching for them and then putting them
into their mouths, where they become a choking hazard.
Avoid lit candles on trees and keep any lit candles out of reach of
small children. You can also consider not lighting candles up at all
with small children in the house.
Turn off all lights and blow out all candles when you leave the
house or go to sleep. This will help avoid a potential fire hazard.
And dont forget to make sure your smoke detector is working.
Most holiday plants are safe, but remember that mistletoe and
holly berries eaten in excess can be dangerous. If your child does
snack on a holiday plant, you can always call the Northern New
England Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222.
Finally, if you are hosting a party in your home, dont forget to
clean up the night of the party so your child doesnt discover left
over alcoholic beverages or small snack foods that can be choking
hazards the morning after. So to wrap up for this year
Lewis First, MD, is chief of Pediatrics at The University of Vermont Childrens Hospital and chair of the Department of Pediatrics
at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. You can also catch
First with Kids weekly on WOKO 98.9FM and WPTZ Channel 5,

SPAULDING (Division I)

Lost to Rutland in quarterfinal)
COACH: Brad Bessette

With everyone back from last season except three players, the Crimson Tide look to
have a little more experience this season. The
team finished just under the .500 mark in each
of the past two seasons, with the bulk of its
scoring coming from one or two top players.
Dont expect that to change this year with
all eyes on senior Jesse Scott. The all-state
first team standout is coming off a 30-goal
season, despite missing four games with an
injury. A fast, strong skater with a wicked
wrist shot, Scott will certainly draw plenty of
attention from the opposition.
Everyone knows Jess is one of the best
players in state; shes a great example for the
team with her hard work. Her goal scoring
gets the most attention, but she plays well in
all areas of the ice, according to coach Brad
Bessette.
Last years other big weapon, Taylor Coburn, transferred to prep school, leaving a
scoring void. Junior Lauryn Bedard will skate
on the first line with Scott, giving the Crimson Tide two strong scoring options. Beyond
those two players, there is little returning
scoring power. Expect forwards Megan MacIver, Riley McFaun and Katlyn Alger all to
see regular shifts. The blue line includes junior Alison Ahearn, a solid skater who moves
the puck well from back end and can jump
up and contribute offensively. The rest of the
defensive group includes Olivia Couture and
Cameron Gilwee.
Team defense will be a priority. Weve
been working hard in practice on limiting
scoring opportunities, and weve got two
strong goalies, but we need to help them out,
said Bessette.
Junior Maddy Pletzer and sophomore Amber McGinley will see action between the
pipes. Both have the ability to steal a game,
and performed well last season in games
where the Crimson Tide were outshot.

NORTHFIELD (Division I) U-32 (Division II)


LAST YEAR 9-12-0
(Lost to BFA in semifinal)
COACH: Chris Amell

The youth movement is on for the Marauders, with eight freshmen moving up from U14,
giving Northfield its deepest roster in years.
Northfield only lost three players to graduation, but leading scorer Cat Miles transferred
to prep school, so the team will need a balanced attack to compete in Division I.
We have a bright future in Northfield,
says coach Chris Amell. This is the biggest
and most talented freshmen class Ive ever
had. Theyll need to adjust to the speed of
D-1 and that takes time, but Im looking forward to watching them progress.
Senior Courtney Amell is the top returning
scorer. Shes fast up the ice and has played
both forward and defense. Shell center the
first line, with junior Bridget Doney and
sophomore Aleta Mathers. Freshmen Corrine
Bolding, Kailie French, Sarah Garvin and
Kaylee Thayer will all skate up front. The
defensive cornerstones will be juniors Brianna Doty and Julia Passalacqua. Both have
been starters since their freshman season.
The teams blue line also includes talented
freshmen Tea Miles and Nichole Pappas. In
goal, senior Analiese Morvan returns, along
with freshman Kaylee Thayer, who will play
forward when not in goal.

Offensively sophomore forward April
Tousignant is the top returning goal scorer.
Senior Celia Lawton will skate on the first
line with Kelly Baird, and should add to the
scoring power. The defense will be led by
sophomore Lilianna Ziedins. A strong defensive player, she can also score, with four
goals already this season in just two games.
The rest of the D-corps includes seniors
Rachael Tousignant and Sally Goodwin. In
the net, senior Alison Yandow returns after
converting from forward. She faced 40-plus
shots in a number of games last season, and
will continue to battle keep the Highlanders

The Raiders are coming off a season where

Visiting a National Park Could Change Your Life
By Helen Hossley
I was introduced to our national parks
on December 10, 1989. I remember the
date because it was the birth of my
enchantment with our national parks. I
landed in Yellowstone National Park
while on a skiing journey with a friend,
Ginger. Gingers friend, Arden, was a
geologist and a seasonal park ranger at
Yellowstone during the summer. He
owned Yellowstone Expeditions and led
overnight cross-country ski tours near the
Grand Canyon of Yellowstone River.
As luck would have it, Arden needed
help leading a group while he continued
to set up camp. I had time on my hands
and skis waiting for an opportunity to get
off the car rack and into some snow. The
experience of spending a week in the
backcountry of Yellowstone captured my
heart, drilled to my core and embedded
itself in my DNA. The magic that was
unveiled led to my becoming a National
Park Service Ranger. I had the privilege
of wearing the iconic hat and uniform for almost 5 years. The
values and mission of our National Park Service remain with
me today.
I share this with you as I hope to inspire you to visit the
national treasures, ours and those around the world.
Did you know that the National Park Service celebrated its
100th birthday on August 25, 2016? There are currently has
413 areas within its supervision covering approximately 84
million acres of land? There is a site within every state in the
union as well as the District of Columbia, American Samoa,
Virgin Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico. These areas include
national parks, monuments, historical parks, historical sites,

lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas,


scenic rivers and trials, the White House
and more. Our national park system was
created to preserve and protect for
future generations. The sites highlight
the magnificent landscapes and natural
areas. They afford us a place to relax,
rejuvenate, recreate and wonder. They
also are a bookmark of our history, the
good, the bad and the ugly. No matter
where your interest may lie whether it
be Native American, World War II, the
Manhattan project, womens suffrage,
civil rights, presidents lives or natural
history, there is a site for you.
To whet your appetite, here are a few
sites in the New England and New York

its extremely cold or hot.
-- Sid P., Lowell, Massachusetts
DEAR SID: That is a very good point! Even with a protective sweater or vest and booties, conditions can just be too
extreme for your pet. And that definition of too extreme
can vary for each of your pets. A large dog may handle cold
weather much better, for much longer, than a small or even
medium-size dog.
How can you tell what a dog can handle? First, some
breeds are known for their tolerance to cold -- or lack
thereof. A Dachsund has very low tolerance and may
quickly get ill, while a Bernese mountain dog thrives in
cold, snowy landscapes. Second, each dog has its own
level of tolerance, regardless of breed. Owners must protect their pets from the cold, observe their behavior when
they go out (do they whimper, shiver or limp?) and respond
immediately. For small dogs with tiny paws and low cold
tolerance, invest in pee pads to use on chilly days.
Send your questions, comments or tips to ask@pawscorner.com.

November Weather
November was fairly unremarkable with average temperatures
at 36.9 running about 1.6 degrees above the baseline normals.
Warmest day occurred early in the month on the second of November with a high of 64 degrees. Frost occurred on 22 days of
the month with lowest reading of 20 degrees on the 28th. November is in deep stick season and what changes this up typically
is snowfall if you get it. Well, this year we did get some and it
was the dreaded wet snow that produces power outages and nasty
travel conditions. Wet snow fell on the 20th, with about 2.1 recorded at the airport atop Berlin Hill. A trace or more of snow fell
every day through the 24th with a cool down and snowy period at
least for the mountains.
November usually the cloudiest month of the year turned out
to be similar to its prior month of October. As it turns out there
were sunny days on the 8th, 13th, and 14th. With a few days that
featured just a few clouds or mostly sunny skies that could be
added to that list early in the month, but by around the 15th of last
month, skies were cloudy for a total of 11 days.
Looking at Mount Manseld data, the snow depth at the stake
jumped to 26 which suddenly became fairly decent snow depth.
So, overall November was average and more considered to be par
for the course in weather events.

further to the south in the Southeast U.S. and inevitably working its way north all happening at a much faster pace than
ecological systems can possibly keep up with. Winter south of
45 N. latitude (which resides just south of the Vermont Canadian border) will be a thing of the past and rare in just 25 to 35
years. See projected precipitation below and note Summer and
Fall precipitation.

ing back to 1979.


Taken together, these ndings show little sign of recovery after an exceptionally poor start to the winter freeze-up season. This
doesnt bode well for survival of the ice through next years summer melting season, say scientists. Its looking more and more like
well be seeing a blue ocean event in the arctic with the next 10
years, and possibly during the summer of 2018, with next summer
sea ice very limited.
Sea Ice covering the arctic regulates the northern hemispheres jet
stream and storm track, it cools us off after a summer heat wave, so
when arctic sea ice goes and its happening fast now its increasingly looking like the planet will be unsustainable as we know it
with the 6th mass extinction now under way and nearly 200 species
a day ending up extinct.
The big concern is feedback loops the release methane (CH4)
and more CO2 into the atmospheres through the soil. A recent
study that just came out shows an astonishingly horrible emission
of carbon from the soils as the planets warms which out paces all
manmade CO2 by 9 times. Next up Greenland melt down and
Antarctica. We in Vermont can thank our lucky stars that we do not
own a coastline------- yet.

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2)


Mid December measurement for Carbon Dioxide CO2 was
404.12 ppm as measured at the Mauna Loa Observatory. Highest-ever daily average CO2 at Mauna Loa Observatory 409.44
ppm back on April 9th, 2016. A stable sustainable climate occurs
under 350 ppm with 280 ppm the most desirable early to mid last
century. Fracking may be contributing to larger releases of Methane CH4 gas which is more than 30 times more powerful than
CO2 which adds to Greenhouse gasses. Also theres evidence of
larger releases of methane CH4 in Siberia and the Barents-Kara
seas in the arctic region north of Russia which scientists continue
to monitor.
Record low volume Arctic Sea Ice...
With the latest sea ice data for November just in, 2016 continues to be a dramatic year in the Arctic. Following an unusually
warm start to the year and record low ice in several months, a
markedly sluggish freeze-up season in the back end of the year
is also seeing records tumble. Earlier last week, scientists conrmed the area of Arctic Ocean covered by sea ice known as
sea ice extent reached a record low in November. Now, gures
from the Piomas (Pan-Arctic Ice Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System) conrm the volume of sea ice also hit record lows.
At close to 8,000 cubic kilometres (cubic km), total sea ice
volume in November stood at just 48% of the long-term average
and the smallest of any November in the satellite record stretch-

This graph shows the rate of temperature rise in Fahrenheit under different
emission scenarios. Business as usual brings the temperatures up to unsustainable levels and human extinction, with even the best example shown, at 3.8
degrees and a rosy assumption that mankind will change out ways, there will
be famine, extreme weather scenarios, and food shortages that may possibly
be managed for a time. There is a lot of pessimism with the recent election of
Donald Trump and his inattention to Climate Change over the next 4 years.

Canada in the near to midterm will be the future bread basket


in North America...
With advancing drought, wild re, and sea level rise across parts
of the U.S., Canada will claim its prairies to rich farmland in a
quickly warming world over the next 10 to 25 years. Rainfall will
increase across northern areas as snow decreases. The greening
of the Boreal forests will be lush while the opposite will occur

Vermont December and early January Weather Trends


December and going back into portions of November has
gotten much colder and should stay this way for a while in December as high latitude blocking sets up delivery of arctic air
also from cross-polar air masses via Siberia. One particularly
cold air mass arrives around the 16th of December and can best
be described as one of the coldest in a few years.
Unfortunately changes toward milder conditions will be
with us during the Holiday season centered around the 24th
with another mild air mass intrusion around the 27-28th of the
month. Another colder shot of arctic air though not nearly so
brutal as what well be seeing around mid month will arrive
toward New Years Day. An oscillation of milder again January
3rd and then progressively colder again around 6th of January.
This would suggest great buildup of snow in our local ski
resorts to start to melt out some in the lower elevations with
oscillations of milder and wet weather. What comes to mind?
Ice. With a thaw- refreeze of snow pack once again youll surely want to ask Santa for appropriate footwear that works well
in lots and lots of ice.
