It’s okay to ask for directions.

Thanking the student body at Montpelier Middle School for doing their part to support local businesses, Gov. Peter Shumlin, small business owners and others recently urged Vermonters to support local retailers and employers this holiday season. “It’s always important to shop locally and do business with locally-owned companies, but especially critical this year in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene,” the Governor said. “Supporting our neighbors, keeping our dollars in our communities and strengthening the state’s economy have never mattered more.” Andrea Cohen, executive director of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, agreed. “It is especially important in light of the recent flooding and devastation from Irene to support each other- businesses helping other businesses and residents, residents helping each other and businesses,” she said. “It is so fantastic to see the young people of Vermont setting an example for all of us by supporting their neighbor businesses now, during the holiday season, and throughout the year. By buying local you are investing in your community and you are to be commended.” VBSR has been promoting “Buy Local First” the past two years through the creation of the Local First Vermont Resource Guide and Coupon Book. The 2011 Book has over 250 coupons for businesses in Chittenden, Addison, and Washington County, and this year is working with Red Barn Fundraising to provide books to school groups for fundraising activity. Gov. Shumlin and local businesses thanked students at the Montpelier Middle School for selling the buy-local coupon books and supporting community businesses. “The response to the Buy Local First Coupon Book has been tremendous-- that is no surprise in a place like Vermont where we all understand that buying local is really about supporting our neighbors and our community,” Cohen said. “We have come a long way in 90 days. In Wilmington and Dover alone, 58 businesses have reopened,” Gov. Shumlin said. “Over the holiday season you can help move Vermont’s recovery forward by continuing to volunteer your time, by encouraging your family to visit Vermont and by re-investing in our local businesses by shopping locally, which will help the State’s recovery and rebuilding efforts.” The Governor and Cohen said in addition to supporting the local economy and our neighbors’ businesses, local employers give better service and hire locally. Doing business locally is also more environmentally friendly by discouraging sprawl and traffic congestion. And shifting just 10 percent of food purchases to local food would add more than $100 million to Vermont’s economy, while banking locally helps ensure loans to local people and businesses. n n n

Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel presented the Vermont Foodbank with an $807 donation last Monday on behalf of its staff and customers. The donation is part of an in-store promotion called “Dimes for No Bags.” Each time a customer didn’t take a plastic shopping bag, Lenny’s deposited a dime into a collection jar. Customers also added their own spare change and cash. The result was a $807 donation to the Vermont Foodbank, which translates to nearly 5,000 meals to Vermonters in need of food assistance. “In addition to supporting a great cause, our customers have also reduced the number of shopping bags that will end up in our landfills,” said Mark McCarthy, Vice President of Lenny’s. “It’s a winning situation for everyone, and a promotion we are going to continue for a long time.” As people begin to heat their homes and winter sets in, the Vermont Foodbank is concerned about increased demand for charitable food. “During the past year, Vermonters have suffered great losses due to a number of factors—natural disasters, a weak economy, layoffs and high unemployment,” said John Sayles, Vermont Foodbank CEO. “The Vermont Foodbank and our network of partners around the state expect to see more people requesting emergency food assistance. Support from businesses like Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel has never been more important. We are so grateful for their continued partnership in the fight against hunger.” There is still time to be part of Lenny’s effort to support the Vermont Foodbank. Purchase a ticket for $5 at any of their three locations and be rewarded with substantial discounts on top gift items throughout the store when shopping during their 2011 Charity Sale on Saturday, December 10th. 100% of tickets sales will be donated to the Vermont Foodbank. Each $5 ticket sold will enable the Vermont Foodbank to help provide 30 meals for Vermonters in need. Additionally, Lenny’s will contribute 2% of all sales made on that Saturday to the Foodbank. Last year this effort raised $6,245, and this year’s goal is to reach $10,000.

occurred with at least 2000 other FBLA members from across the country and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each state marched in with their banners shouting at the top of their lungs. Harwood’s small group marched in with blinking lights on their heads shouting “802 802 802” and the energy was incredible. Saturday night after the final General Session, students attended a Blue Jeans for Babies Dance and donated money to the March of Dimes. Since returning, FBLA members are planning a community-service project and fundraising events. The next conference will be the Spring Leadership Conference in South Burlington, Vermont. Next fall, members hope to attend the National Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Farmers Joey Klein and Lila Bennett spoke at the recent Central Vermont Food Systems Council meeting.

Two local farmers spoke about small farming life at the Central Vermont Food Systems Council’s quarterly meeting over an “Extending the Harvest” demo dinner provided by NECI students on November 16th. Lila Bennett from Tangletown Farm in Middlesex and her husband raise chickens, turkeys, rabbits, lamb, and beef cattle to sell at local schools and the Burlington and Montpelier Farmer’s Markets. She talked about the challenges. “It is hard to compete with factory produced prices, we make very little on what we sell after the costs of feed, leasing land and harvesting are considered. We don’t have money but we are staying in farming.” As a younger farmer in a generation that has seen a decline in interest in farming, Bennett is part of the next phase of farming in Central Vermont. Despite the difficulties, there are joys in smallscale farming. “We provide clean, ethically grown meat for the community and our three kids get an education they would never get anywhere else. We love to have people come to visit us.“ Joey Klein from Littlewood Farm in Plainfield has been a craftsman farmer for over thirty years, growing berries and vegetables for his pick your own farm stand. “The economics of farming are hard, but the growing isn’t.” Klein views farming as both an education and hands on enterprise “swimming in science,” and has hosted many interns over the years as they learn about the ins and outs of seed to sale. Klein values how local farms ensure open space and allow a sense of community. Visitors to these local farms also have an opportunity to see how the foods we eat and drink are produced. He is currently exploring “How do I get out of farming?” or farm stewardship when your children aren’t interested in inheriting the farm. Currently, land sharing is the best option, but finding young farmers interested in small-scale farming has been difficult. Rob Kidd from Rural Vermont concluded the meeting with updates and examples from the Food Sovereignty movement, policy issues regarding economic justice for farmers, and efforts to strengthen local food systems. In looking to the future of food distribution and agricultural livelihoods, Kidd is asking, “What is going to happen when the trucks stop?” For more information about Central Vermont Food Systems Council go to or contact

“It was wonderful! Absolutely perfect. They took great care of us - everyone!
Jordan Taylor Semprebon had just awakened from napping in her daddy’s arms when we arrived. She was smiling, stretching and yawning and the occasional squawk alerted all present that little Jordan was waiting only so long for her introductory photo. Just a day old - she was born on November 28 - we loved that she already had command of the entire situation. That’s a good skill for the youngest of three to have since she’ll meet some competition at home from fourteen-month-old Justin and eightyear-old Madison. Even at 7lb/7oz we bet she will hold her own. She looks just like her dad Jamie Semprebon and seemed pretty content when cuddled by her mom Tanja. The Semprebon family lives in Barre. We hope the wonder and the perfection continues. Best wishes.

“Twilight” (2008) gave us the gift of a perfect love story. “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn” are giving us an ever rarer treat: the gift of a realistic love saga. Cookie-cutter Hollywood love stories often conclude with the couple getting married. In “Breaking Dawn” – as in real life - the big wedding is only the beginning. Bella and Edward’s wedding is satisfyingly beautiful and romantic. But in the Twilight movies – as in real life – love comes with responsibilities. Hollywood often presents love as a cure for all of your problems and issues. If a girl learns about love from dumb movies, she’d assume that her future husband will be the missing puzzle piece who fits into her life seamlessly and magically makes her whole. Author Stephanie Meyer makes sure that her young fans don’t grow up thinking that relationships are easy. Bella and Edward’s wedding isn’t just about flowers and white gowns; it is a serious commitment. “Breaking Dawn” emphasizes the burden of responsibility and the binding power of real vows. If newlyweds aren’t ready to band together during the hard times, then they may as well just give it up after 72 days. Everything about Bella and Edward’s wedding feels more real and more wholesome than Kim Kardashian’s television marriage to Kris Humphries. There is a wonderful moment where Bella

is walking down the aisle. Instead of enjoying her special day, the bride is nearly overwhelmed with anxiety. Edward senses this and gives Bella a big, sincere, loving smile. Then she turns to her father and sees the supportive smile on his face. Suddenly, Bella’s fears are washed away and she is ready to say her “I do’s” with confidence. It is a beautiful scene. Five minutes into “Breaking Dawn,” I was completely hooked. And the movie only gets more interesting and suspenseful as it goes along. Hey, Team Jacob: you must like “Breaking Dawn” even more than I do! For the first three movies, I saw Jacob as nothing more than a pathetic third wheel. He was no werewolf – more like a lovesick puppy who refused to accept the fact that Bella was never going to choose him. Now I finally have some respect for Jacob and understand the vital part that he plays in the saga. It warmed my heart to see him swallow his pride and work with the Cullen family to protect Bella and I absolutely admire his spirit of sacrifice. “Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is an engrossing drama and the best Twilight film so far. I wonder why this amazing romantic movie is getting such bad reviews… Oh, wait: it’s probably because 90% of film critics are men.

Editor: Climate change is impacting Vermont because it is damaging our local crops and hurting our environment. Climate change is caused by the carbon emissions in the atmosphere causing the earth to warm, changing the climate. We are the ones causing most of the pollution because we are polluting our atmosphere with emissions from cars and factories. Carbon emissions come from burning fossil fuels and fossil fuels are the worst. Some fossil fuels are oil, coal and natural gases.

Climate change is impacting all around the world. The ice caps are melting causing the ocean levels to rise. Then some of the coast lines will not be around any more. I think that we should use less energy and try to be more renewable by switching to wind power. Windmills can start to generate power at 9 miles an hour. Even up to high winds, the windmills won't break because they shut down when the wind is too powerful. Wind power is the cheapest renewable source. Once the windmills are in place they release no emissions in the atmosphere. Even though we have to destroy some of our mountain ridges, wind power can help stop all of the carbon emissions being released into the air. To conclude, I like the idea of Gov. Shumlin's plan to have 90% of our energy to be renewable by 2050. I think this will help the planet because there will be less carbon emissions in our atmosphere. And putting up windmills to be renewable, even though it might take a while, is a good plan. I think that the windmills are a great start because they don't cost a lot of money.

Those “Uncomfortable” People
■ ■ ■

ave you ever known one of those people whom you just don’t feel completely comfortable being around? That person is not one of the type you would actually cross the street to avoid running into because of some rude thing they were likely to say. I have known a few of THAT type. I had an uncle who was one. He was a good man, just rude. Yes, somehow, I have learned, you can be both. When I was a child my whole family would cringe and do anything possible to hide or go away whenever my uncle’s car would pull into our driveway. It was almost as bad as the duck-and-cover routine to avoid nuclear fallout that we learned in grammar school back then, and the situation was exactly as futile. In both cases, you just can’t get away. Like I said, my uncle was a good man; a minister and everything. He was just rude, and unavoidable. The way people like that operate, and get their way, is that most decent people would rather not ruin their own day with some big verbal confrontation. Therefore, my uncle always seemed to get his way. As an associated side-note, I will tell you that a company I once worked for actually encouraged their upper management to read a terrible book entitled: “Winning Through Intimidation.” The premise of the book was to make people who worked for you scared to death of the sight of you, and that doing so would make them work harder. I never read the book. I never wanted to. I already knew my uncle, and he probably wrote it. The type of person I’m referring to as making one simply uncomfortable is much less harsh a type than my uncle was. This person is one who says slightly cutting things that are just not necessary to be said. He is one who would have never heard his mother tell him: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” He would have been far too busy pulling the wings off from a housefly to listen to that. You know the type, and I’ll wager you have a mental image of an individual, in your mind, right now. I

have several. I used to think that a person like that was just trying to be funny, in saying some stupid and, coincidentally, hurtful thing. Come to find out, in most cases, there is no coincidence about it at all, no matter how much ‘stupid’ is involved. To be fair, there are some legitimately stupid people, and those are okay to say whatever they want. Doing or saying something because you can’t help it is always okay, in my book. I would rather put up with a thousand stupid comments made by legitimately stupid people, (I have several liberal friends) than with one stupid comment made by a smart person. You see, smart people do it on purpose, and that, to me, is inexcusable. I’m writing about all this today because, over the years, I have been verbally accosted, although accosted is too strong a word, by a handful of people whom I believe to be smart, but who seem to like to say ‘uncomfortable’ and unnecessary things, and thought you might have had similar experiences. Those unnecessary things, unfortunately, always seem to be etched deepest in the memory. They are particularly difficult to erase. I do take heart in the fact that there is justice, in the next life for sure, and in this one, for some. Such people as we have here discussed soon exhaust an ever-diminishing list of friends, who may not actually cross the street to avoid them, but who also would not cross the street to bid them “Good day.” If you know someone like this, who says ‘uncomfortable’ things to you, figure out if they are smart people, or stupid. If stupid, then chalk it up to that, give them a big hug, and move on. If they are smart, move on still, only a bit faster. I have learned that many people go through life completely unimpaired by the rare speech impediments known as tact and manners. If you are one of those people, stop it.

hen I think about it, there are lots of things in our world today that could be cleared up with a little common sense. But common sense seems to be a thing of the past. Things are made to appear a huge issue taking weeks, months and even years to fix, when it should only take a few hours of common sense. An interesting example would be, how can a group of teachers go on strike in order to demand more money, better health insurance and less time in the classroom when many of their friends and neighbors are out of work and have none of the above? Probably not a good time to demand more and better for themselves. Keep in mind that there are literally thousands of teachers out of work who would be happy to take the job that they are demanding more for. A little common sense would go a long, long way. So, I could solve a lot of problems I’m sure, but then there are certain problems that not only can’t I solve, I have no idea why they happen in the first place let alone how to fix them. And for me the most obvious personal problem is, where does that strange but pervasive chin hair come from? Now I don’t want to go too fast before I explain the problem and

not just casually mention it. I am and always have been a woman with very little hair. The hair on my head is thin and fine and always has been. In truth, one of my dreams would be to have thick wavy hair but I don’t think that it is going to happen. Maybe in my next life, but who knows. I did shave my legs when I was younger, not because I really needed to but because it was the thing to do! And all of the other nooks and crannies that most women have hair, I just have had a sparse thatch! And truthfully, I never thought much about it. Head hair, yes but other places? Nary a thought. And then one day, out of the blue, I felt a wiry little hair on my chin. I did wonder where did it come from, but not a lot of thought. And then it happened. Not one little stiff hair but more than one. In fact, what I found on my chin was the beginning of a scraggly, prepubescent beard! Well, since Ringling Brothers eliminated their side show, the need for a bearded woman disappeared. So, I bought a very “good” pair of tweezers and whenever they showed their heads, those hairs were yanked out, by the roots, from my chin. But who knew that as soon as they were eliminated they would gather themselves together and grow again? I sure didn’t. Now I know that this evidence of old age in womanhood happens to most

by Senator Bill Doyle

he campaign of 1840 was one of the most spectacular ever waged in Vermont. More people voted (56,117) then in any previous election. Not until 1868 would the vote be exceeded (57,978). The 1840 Whig State Convention was held in Burlington on June 25. It was reported to be the largest ever held in New England. Attendance was estimated between 15,000 and 25,000 and placards, banners and log cabins were features of a huge parade for “Tippecanoe and Tyler too.” Tippecanoe was a famous battle won by William Henry Harrison’s troops. Some of the colorful placards during the campaign of 1840 read: “Hard cider, preferred to hard times” - Addison County “Old Orange Old Tip - We’ll try” - Orange County “All farmers - All Whigs” - Jericho

“Is he honest, is he capable? He is, he is, people know it” -

and the Washington County

“Genuine Democracy - Van Buren’s don’t pass in Enosburg” “Let the people teach these palace slaves to respect log cabins” - Essex County On July 8, a crowd estimated at 10,000 to 15,000 gathered on Stratton Mountain to hear Daniel Webster speak of the need to hold the Union together by electing the Whigs. The convention and parade were a harbinger of the election results. Vermont gave the Whigs the greatest proportionate vote in the nation. Many Vermont Whigs now realized that slavery could not be ignored. Slade continued his

attempts to “abolitionize the Whig party.” In 1842 he wrote the editor of the New Haven Palladium: “The great mass of abolitionists think that every just purpose of abolition may be better accomplished without, than within, a distinct political organization. They think, indeed, that so far as political action is concerned, that action may be rendered more safe and effectual by incorporating abolition... into all parties... than by a separate organization.” The Whig platform of 1842 labeled slavery as a “moral and political evil which ought to be removed by all just and proper means consistent with the Constitution.” This tactic was successful, and in 1842, the Liberty party vote dwindled. Senator Bill Doyle serves on the Senate Education Committee and Senate Economic Affairs Committee, and is the Senate Minority Leader. He teaches government history at Johnson State College.

Randolph resident Cassandra Blanchard recently became one of the newest members from the Northeast region to join a national advocacy network led by the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF), known as Parkinson’s Advocates in Research. She traveled to New Jersey last month and completed an intensive three-day training which prepares her to join 130 others across the US in influencing research and speeding the development of new and effective treatments for Parkinson’s. Ms. Blanchard was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s in 2002 at the age of 36 (the average age of diagnosis is 60). She has since retired from her career in the financial sector and turned her focus to helping other people touched by Parkinson’s. Living in an area where few support groups exist, she has become the go-to resource for the Parkinson’s community, frequently receiving phone calls from individuals up to 30 miles away. Upon the recommendation by her doctor, she applied to last month’s training, during which she took part in rigorous sessions on the science of Parkinson’s and the process that brings new treatments to market. She says the last day of training, which featured advice from seasoned PDF Research Advocates, left her inspired to, “[J]ust get out there and do it! I’m eager to work with those communities so every person touched by the disease knows about opportunities to participate in research and what questions to ask before signing up.” In addition to community outreach, Ms. Blanchard hopes to one-day work directly with companies and local hospitals, advising them on how research studies can become more “Parkinson’s friendly,” with criteria that are considerate of the needs of people with Parkinson’s yet still scientifically reliable. Executive Director Robin Elliott said, “Research Advocates are key partners in PDF’s mission to support the research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s. We believe that when members of the Parkinson’s community are equal stakeholders – alongside research professionals, government agencies and private industry – their presence will improve clinical studies. We look forward to partnering with Ms. Blanchard to move closer to those goals.” For more information about Ms. Blanchard’s work or the Parkinson’s Advocates in Research program, contact PDF at (800) 457-6676 or or visit

women but how could it happen to me? If I had been able to grow this same luxuriant hair on my head I would be a wholly different woman! So, here is my question, where do these hairs come from and why? And if you can’t answer these two questions, maybe you can answer this one, which is the one that I can’t even begin to answer. How do you get rid of chin hair, permanently? We already know that tweezing is only temporary and waxing is expensive and is no more permanent than tweezing. And for those of you who don’t know, you can clean out every single chin hair in the morning and when you go out in the afternoon, lots of them are already back! Think about it, how many times have you seen an older woman with a thatch of chin hair that could qualify her for playing Santa in a local Christmas pageant? And most of the time either she doesn’t know or has just given up trying to rid herself of this elfin look. So here again is my question. How can it be that I consider myself the guru of political and social issues and yet I have no idea how to rid myself of chin hair? The more you think about it (and you will) remember we are the people who have put a man on the moon and made it possible for every child in the world to have a hand-held device that allows them to always be in direct contact with anyone, any place in the world and yet we can’t figure out how to eliminate the pesky chin hair. Maybe it is priorities and chin hair isn’t one of them. But not in my house. And as the Christmas season is almost upon us, we don’t want to be pointed at by small children who see Santa on every corner. Oh, and don’t ever give up and shave your chin because the rush for your household razor causes deep and deadly behaviors with your male loved ones. So, figure it out and let me know and I will promise to do the same. And if all else fails, keep that chin hair trimmed neatly and pretend that you not only don’t care but want to display that beard proudly.

it’s not just cows anymore!

On November 12, Sydney Perry, originally from Vermont and a 2008 graduate of U-32 High School, was crowned Miss North Carolina USA 2012. Sydney Perry grew up in Barre and Middlesex, and now resides in Wilmington, NC and is a senior at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, pursuing a degree in Marine Biology and Psychology. Although Miss Perry calls Wilmington, NC her home, she credits some of her Vermont roots in helping her achieve this accomplishment. Perry said, “I could not have succeeded at this goal without the many people who helped shape me, encourage me and guide me while growing up in Vermont.

Fashion Know-How
When you’re heading out the door, ask yourself this question: What are my three favorite stores to shop at? Then go and shop there! Celebrate the reason why they are your favorite store by patronizing them. Know that by supporting your local independent store that you’re supporting more domestically-made items. Domestically-made products generally can’t manufacture the volume that the big box stores need, so they are offered to the independent store to sell. Another great reason for supporting the local vendor is that you end up supporting your USA-made companies as well.

Shopping Season Is Upon Us!

There are some special teachers and counselors, community and business owners, and of course family and friends who have been instrumental to me.” Miss Perry will go onto compete for the coveted title of Miss USA 2012 in Las Vegas, a nationally televised pageant on NBC, owned by Donald Trump and NBC Universal. The date has not yet been announced. Miss Perry said that her supporters can follow her progress to Miss USA and her year-long reign as Miss North Carolina USA on her public page at this copy is from 12-15-10

Back by popular demand, Lost Nation Theatre presents It’s a Wonderful Life – A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry, 7pm Tuesday through Thursday, December 6th through the 8th. Montpelier City Hall Arts Center is again transformed into a 1940’s broadcast studio as five versatile actors and a busy sound effects wizard bring Frank Capra’s classic to life in front of a live studio audience - that’s you! This fun, inspiring evening sold out its performances in its debut, so be sure to get your tickets early. It’s a Wonderful Life is most famous as a 1946 American film directed by Frank Capra, which was based on the short story “The Greatest Gift,” written by Philip Van Doren Stern. Van Doren Stern was inspired by a dream to write the story. Before becoming a film, it appeared in Readers Scope and Good Housekeeping magazines. Lost Nation Theater presents its fast-growing holiday tradition in a concert stage version — complete with a Foley artist creating live sound effects, onair signals & applause signs —

LNT Presents It’s a Wonderful Life - A Live Radio Play
Tuesday through Thursday, December 6—8, 2011 at the period-perfect Montpelier City Hall Arts Center. LNT’s Producing Artistic Director Kathleen Keenan is at the helm of this production, designed by Casey Covey, with costumes by Cora Fauser. Youth Company member Justin McLlarky serves as Assistant Stage Manager. It’s a Wonderful Life takes place in the fictional town of Bedford Falls shortly after World War II. The film starred James Stewart as George Bailey, a man whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve gets the attention of guardian angel Clarence Odbody, sent to help him in his hour of need. Uproarious one moment, deeply touching the next, It’s A Wonderful Life is a great reminder of what we can do when we stick together. It’s a Wonderful Life was nominated for five Oscars. The film is recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, and is number one on their list of the most inspirational American films of all time. Now let the magic of a

staged “radio show” spark your imagination! Kim Bent leads the cast of actor-singers as screen star Jake Laurents who plays George. Cher Laston is leading lady Sally Applewhite, who plays Mary. Mark Roberts regales as radio host Freddie Filmore handling such roles as Mr. Potter, 6 year-old Peter Bailey, & Ernie the cab driver. Michael Manion stars again as Harry Heywood tackling Clarence, Uncle Billy, Harry Bailey, and Martini, while Jude Milstein returns as bombshell Lana Sherwood playing women, little kids, and Old Man Collins too. Kim Ward is back as the stage manager and the overworked foley artist creating one-hundred effects before your very eyes – and ears! Tickets are available by phone – call 802-229-0492, online at or in person at the Montpelier City Clerk’s Office on the first floor of City Hall. All tickets are just $10 in advance, $15 day of/door, plus each child (under 12) per accompanying paying adult is free! Infants & Toddlers are not admitted to the theater.

“OH NO, NOT AGAIN!!!” is the title of this latest book. Different individuals will describe this novel in different ways. Some will say it’s about young love, (no sex). Others will says it’s about inner workings of school systems. Yet others will call it politics as usual. Still others will call the book religious in nature. Because of the interplanetary travel, it will be called science fiction by some. In other words, everyone will have an opinion. All of John Cort-Desrochers’ books (four of them) are totally different. “Call to Rebellion” deals exclusively with education. “Iconoclastic,” is the way a newspaper described it. This book is no longer available. “Laurie the Martyred Child” is an historical novel based on an actual child case (physical and psychological) which took place in Canada.

Give Away Day
On December 7th & 8th, 10am to 4pm, All About Pets - Pet Deli is sponsoring a give away day event to help the many people in our community that were affected by flooding. As one of my friends from church said, not only were houses flooded, but many businesses also. If household items were lost, so were many jobs. Times are tough. In order to give our support we will have a few household items, gloves, hats, coats, Christmas ornaments, and toys for the kids. Anyone who wants to donate to our community may drop off items on Tuesday at the Pet Deli located on the Barre-Montpelier Road. (Rte 302) in Berlin at the Twin City Plaza, between McDonalds and Windshield World. Thank you all for supporting our small business. Special thanks to the Montpelier Church of Christ for their help and donations

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.

AYERS, GLEASON W., 94, of Waterbury, passed away November 26 at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin, after several weeks of declining health. Gleason was born in Montpelier on Aug. 18, 1917, the son of Max G. Ayers and Amy Elizabeth (Wheeler) Ayers. He attended Waterbury schools and graduated from Waterbury High School in 1936. He attended Norwich University and graduated in 1940, with a degree in electrical engineering. On Feb. 22, 1941, he married his high school sweetheart Marion Alice Pratt at the Congregational Church in Waterbury. She predeceased him on May 1, 2010. He began his engineering career with General Electric Company in Schenectady, N.Y., and in Lynn, Mass., where he was production line engineer for the electrical generators used on B-29 bombers. In 1947, he returned to Waterbury to work for Pilgrim Plywood Corporation. Beginning in 1957, he worked for the VT Highway Department and the VT Agency of Transportation in a number of engineering capacities including planning and construction of Interstate 89. He retired in 1980 from the Bennington Highway District as district highway administrator. Following retirement, Gleason and Marion returned to Waterbury and together renovated their home at the corner of Elm and Randall streets, originally built by Gleason's grandparents. He lived there until the night of the flood on Aug. 28, 2011. Gus had the distinction of experiencing evacuation from both the 1927 and the 2011 floods. In 1927, he was evacuated from his childhood home on Randall Street in a boat. In 2011, he was walked out from his home on Elm Street in chest high water. Gus was a registered professional engineer in both Massachusetts and Vermont. He was a long time member of VT Society of Engineers and charter member of VT Society of Land Surveyors. He was active in promoting the Vermont Licensing Law for land surveyors and was himself a licensed surveyor. Gus was active in the Masonic Fraternity and received his sixty-year member pin. He was Past Master and then secretary of the Winooski Lodge in Waterbury for seventeen years. He was District Deputy Grand Master for District Six and Grand Junior Deacon of the Grand Lodge of Vermont. Other Masonic memberships included Barre Council R&SM, member and commander of Mt. Zion Commandry of Montpelier, a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and a former member of Mt. Sinai Temple of the Shrine where he sang in the Mt. Sinai Chanters. He was also a charter member of Green Mountain York Rite College and a member of Profil York Rite College of New Hampshire. He was made Knight of the Red Cross of Constantine in 1969, and was Grand Sovereign of The Grand Imperial Council of Vermont in 1986. He was Honorary Grand Sovereign of the Grand Imperial Conclave of Canada in 1990 and also an Honorary Grand Sovereign of the Grand Imperial Council of Maine. Gleason was a longtime Village Water Commissioner and designed and helped build the first water filtration plant for the village. He was both chairman and member of the Waterbury Zoning Board of Adjustment from its inception until he reached eighty years of age. He was the recipient of the Keith A. Wallace Memorial Community Service Award. He served as a trustee of the Waterbury Congregational Church for ten years. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, and was active in the Lake Mansfield Trout Club. He is survived by his four children: Robert and wife Judy of North Hero, Richard and wife Mina of Sanbornton, N.H., Betsy In Loving Memory of Shapiro of Waterbury and her Dale Thurston Jones partner Tom Gorton, and David and wife Betsy of York, Maine. He is also survived by nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; his sister Dorothy Ingalls, and two nephews. He was predeceased by his wife of 69 years Marion on May 1, 2010, as well as by his parents and by his son-inlaw Andrew Shapiro. 11/28/74 ~ 7/4/2001 It’s been ten years since you’ve been gone So we think of you with love today But we always think you that way For in our hearts you still live on Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part God has you in his keeping We have you in our hearts Happy Birthday, Dale. Love, Mom, Dad and your Loving family. BLODGETT, SUSAN J., 66, of East Barre, died November 26 at Central Vermont Medical Center, surrounded by her family. Born in Middletown Springs on Oct. 15, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Samuel and Helen (Morgan) Cavanaugh. She attended schools in Rutland. On Nov. 12, 1975, she married Norman Blodgett in Barre. The couple always made their home in the Barre area. She enjoyed collecting salt and pepper

shakers, cooking, and was an avid bingo payer. She was a member of the United Pentecostal Church in Barre and the Salvation Army and the Moose Club. Survivors include her husband of 36 years of marriage, Norman Blodgett of East Barre; two sons, John E. Fisk, Jr., of Williamstown, Samuel Fisk of Warrensburg, N.Y.; three daughters, Esther Byam of Worcester, Helen Fisk Farnsworth of East Barre and Linda Scoville of Barre Town; 11 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren as well as one unborn grandchild. She is also survived by one sister, Joy Barrows of Rutland, and many nieces, nephews and extended family members. BOARDMAN, OLIVE M., 93, a lifelong resident of Waterbury, passed away at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin on November 26.

He soon became a milk tester for the Vermont Dairy Herd Improvement Association in Burlington (1949-1952) while farming at the Converse Farm in Charlotte until 1959. At that time, the family moved to Montpelier and Dick started work as a claims adjuster for the Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co. (which became Concord Group Insurance Co.) where he stayed until 1975, at which time he opened his own independent agency in White River Junction, which he operated until his retirement in 2003. Dick was a trustee of the Wood Art Gallery in Montpelier, and a life member of the American Legion. He was active in the Unitarian Church in Montpelier, and the United Church of Christ in Hartford. He was a member of the Rotary for most of his career, and ran for state representative in Windsor in 1988. While living in Montpelier, he sang with an a cappella group called the Gentlemen Songsters.

Dick eagerly anticipated sugaring season each year and had his own sugar shack built behind his garage in White River Junction, where he hauled sap from his own taps. He was always up for a game of cribbage (unless the Red Sox were playing!). At his core, Dick was defined by honesty, integrity, generosity and a love of people.

By Stanley A. Miller II Milwaukee Journal Sentinel No, not because I chose journalism as a career. Well, yes, but that obviousness aside, is a blog stocked with eccentric and geeky items to tempt the cash out of your wallet, assuming there is any left after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The website links to items ranging from the absurdly expensive and impractical _ like the $130,000 water jet pack and a $55,000 TRON light cycle _ to cheap, mass-produced junk like a $1.93 iPhone case that looks like a cassette tape and a coffee mug that looks like a toilet ($8.99). The site, run by “a few geeky ladies and gentlemen who partake in way too much Internet shopping,” links to various tools, toys, clothing and various other items they deem worth of attention. Their criteria for what they decide to promote is a tad hazy other than they think the stuff is cool _ and they admit enjoying a “small commission for product referral.” From the looks of things the lionshare of those commissions might be coming from Amazon, which appears to have more than its fair share of products in the mix. Frankly, I’d be surprised if the blog wasn’t run by public relations professionals who set up the site for some clients. Still, the blog’s motivations aside, it’s worth a quick visit for ideas and laughs _ admittedly, the Jedi bathrobe has me fingering my credit card. And the beer ammo bandoleer is inspired. Many, many other items, however, will have you shaking your head, including the Batman snuggie blanket; the nose shower gel dispenser and the AT-AT Star Wars dog costume.

By Alan Henry iOS/Android: If you like recording audio messages for yourself to help you remember important details, or you just want to send your friends something more personal than a text message, allows you to record short voice messages and send them to anyone in your contacts list instantly. Alternatively, just record notes for yourself as personal reminders. Once installed, the mobile app connects with your contacts list to make it easier to send messages as soon as you record them. Just select the person you want to send the message to, press the “hold and speak” button on your phone’s screen, and speak your message. When you let up off of the button, the message is immediately sent to your contact. If your friend is also using the app, incoming voice messages can be played aloud via speaker or when you bring the phone up to your ear. The developers market the app like a push-to-talk walkie-talkie, but it’s really just another fun way to record and send voice messages to your friends. The app works just as well if you want to send yourself short voice messages or record voice notes for your own use, but it’s fun to combine the ability to record personal notes with the ability to send voice notes. is free, and available now in the Android App Market and the iTunes App Store.

Q: What is the difference between SIM and USIM cards? A: SIM cards (Subscriber Identity Module) are used to communicate on GSM networks. With the introduction of UMTS or 3G, it’s highly recommended to use a USIM card to access UMTS network. Although it’s possible to access it with a simple SIM card, the USIM have many advantages as compared to the SIM: _ A USIM is a tiny computer which is able to handle several mini applications, for instance a contactless e-purse for the subway, a local service portal giving you access to your phone bill, etc; _ A 3G (UMTS) handset equipped with a USIM card can be used to make video calls, assuming the calling area is covered by a 3G network; _ Regarding security, a new algorithm is integrated (it’s derived from recent researches in cryptology). It allows to protect you from unauthorized access to your phone line, and therefore to be charged with fraudulent calls on your bill; _ Your calls and data exchanges are encrypted using keys computed by the USIM, and these keys are stronger than those provided by SIMs. _ The phonebook is much bigger on the USIM, allowing thousands of contacts (instead of a maximum of 255 in a SIM). Each USIM contact is also richer, for instance it can contain email addresses, a second or third phone number, etc; _ Contacts in the USIM are stored much more securely on the USIM as compared to using the phone memory. is a site dedicated to providing the latest news and tips to keep your personal information safe while enjoying the technology you use every day.

Parents have been nickel-and-diming me as to what to do when their child swallows a coin. Let me see if I can cough up some information on this topic. As children explore the world, usually between the ages of 6 months and 4 years, it is almost inevitable that they will swallow things that are not necessarily nutritious – and coins probably lead that list. At least 30,000 children are seen annually for coin ingestions in emergency departments, not counting those who end up at doctor’s offices. The good news is that if the coin is the size of a quarter or smaller, it almost always passes onward and outward uneventfully within a few days. On rare occasions, a coin can get stuck in the food pipe or air pipe and becomes a medical emergency. You’ll know this because your child will have difficulty breathing, talking, gasping, or may be changing color from red to blue in the face, and appear very panicked. If this is the case, call 911 where you will likely be instructed on how to perform the Heimlich maneuver while help is on the way. What is the Heimlich maneuver? It is a maneuver that allows you to push air upward from just below the ribs through the windpipe to dislodge the coin or whatever else your child is choking on. If you are at all concerned about where the coin might be, and all parents are even if your child has no symptoms, please call your child’s doctor who most times will want to get an x-ray to locate the coin and provide reassurance that things are moving in the right direction. If it is caught in the food pipe, a gastrointestinal or surgical specialist will be called to help remove the coin with the use of a device called an endoscope. Of course the best way to prevent your child from swallowing a coin is to keep coins away from small children, such as in a piggy bank, and while you’re at it, consider keeping small disk batteries away as well. These need to be removed even if they have passed the food pipe and are parked in the stomach because they can cause serious injury due to the chemicals inside of them that can be released once swallowed. Hopefully tips like this will change things for the better when it comes to making sure that when a coin is accidentally swallowed, everything will come out fine in the end.

‘Starting Over Strong Vermont’ Services Still Available for Flood Victims

By Tom Herzig People who can facilitate the healing of others are a vibrant asset to any community. German native Johannes Otter is a holistic practitioner who treats clients at the Universal Institute of Healing Arts at 90 Three Mile Bridge Road in Montpelier. Otter, who has resided locally since 1989, will occasionally travel to his clients when the situation, such as mobility, warrants. “I strive to treat people with respect and dignity,” he said. “I refer to the people I treat as clients, not patients, because I encourage their participation”, he said. “It’s not meant to be a process where someone gives up responsibility and says - I have this specific problem, fix it.” Otter is a certified massage therapist who often incorporates moist heat clay packs into his treatments, but his practice is not limited to massage. In addition to being a graduate of the Universal Institute of Healing Arts Acupressure Massage program, the Kripalu Yoga Center Massage Therapy program, and a prenatal and post partum massage treatment program, he is a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner. He is trained to treat concerns such as grief, depression, anxiety and stress management.The testimonials on Otter’s website - <> – are genuine and appreciative. They speak to the versatility of his practice and his ability to promote healing. Comments such as – ‘he works with genuine kindness, a sincere interest in helping, and a true ability to effect change’ – are typical. One client writes, ‘the characteristic I most value in our relationship is the space of deep acceptance he holds for me. I always feel respected, even honored in his presence.’ “I work with children, the elderly and anyone in between,” Otter said. “I talk to my clients and potential clients to inform them about what I do and what I treat so that they can feel comfortable and be assured that nothing is done to them without their consent. Dealing with the underlying causes of physical, mental or emotional stress is the goal.” “When anyone has pain, their muscles contract and they can get in a vicious cycle,” Otter relayed. “The change of seasons can affect you as well. Cold contracts the muscles and less blood and lymphatic flow can result, impacting the immune system. Regular massage strengthens your body.” Prenatal massage can assist a woman’s hormone production, lessen swelling and reduce headaches and back pain. The mental and emotional stress of the mother affects the baby. Both are helped if the moms-to-be reach a deep state of relaxation. Postpartum massage can provide relief from physical discomfort and benefit one’s energy level and emotional state. Brennan Healing Science is a healing discipline that combines hands-on healing techniques while addressing psychological and spiritual issues or concerns. It is taught at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, founded by Barbara Brennan, best-selling author of Hands of Light. “For me, part of what I got from the Brennan Healing Science study was learning how to become more aware, including more self-aware,” Otter said. “That has helped me to be fully present in the presence of my clients. It’s so precious to have someone really listen to you and to really tune in to your body.” “I personally had a hernia operation a while ago and a fellow Brennan Healing Science practitioner came with me and gave me

an energy healing during and after the operation,” Otter said. “I needed very little pain medication and had a speedy recovery.” “I treat clients before and after surgeries,” Otter said. “There can be a lot of worry and anxiety pre-surgery. Whenever you tighten up from stress, it’s harder for the body to heal. It’s beneficial to be as mindful and calm as you can. I

also work with many people with cancer who are receiving radiation or chemotherapy. These treatments can destroy cancer cells, but create toxins that stay in the body.” Otter also treats sports injuries and works with clients who are preparing for upcoming races or other endurance events. Racing cyclist Matt Spence offered this testimonial - “I have been seeing Johannes for the past eight months and highly recommend him. He is 100% professional and his work space is relaxing, soothing and comfortable. Johannes is perhaps the most intuitive massage therapist I have ever had the pleasure of working with. If you are considering massage, do not hesitate to see him.” During December, Otter is offering holiday gift certificates, with discounts for purchases of two or more, for both new and existing clients. To have questions answered or to place orders, call 802-223-3870 or e-mail A quote from an unknown source mounted on the wall of Otter’s office reads, “In the end what matters most is – how well did you live? – how well did you love? – how well did you learn to let go?”

Fewer Vermont adults smoke cigarettes – 15 percent in 2010 compared to 17 percent in 2009 – according to the Vermont Department of Health’s 2010 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) study. The national smoking rate in 2010 was 17 percent. “We’re encouraged by the reduction in the overall number of Vermont smokers. We realize that quitting smoking is one of the most difficult behavioral changes a person can make,” said Vermont Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD. “The Vermont Quit Network provides the tools, support and incentives to help even more Vermonters quit.” The Health Department and anti-smoking coalitions statewide are announcing the results of the BRFSS study to demonstrate progress in reducing health risks and to show support for the roughly 76,000 Vermont adults who still smoke. In any given year, more than half make at least one serious quit attempt. Annual events, including the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout and New Year’s resolutions, are often occasions for smokers to set or plan for their quit date. The toll of tobacco in Vermont is high, with more than 850 deaths each year attributed to smoking. Smoking costs the state over $233 million in health care, $72 million of which are Medicaid expenditures.

Most Vermonters think of themselves as “independent quitters,” interested in quitting smoking on their own terms. The Vermont Quit Network’s “Your Quit. Your Way” suite of tools was created to help Vermonters quit using proven methods and tools. Support for Vermont smokers is available online, by phone and in-person from the Vermont Quit Network. The Network’s web site – www., is an online hub designed to help them successfully quit smoking. Free tools available to Vermont smokers as part of “Your Quit. Your Way” include: · Nicotine Replacement Therapy, which can double the chance of quitting for good. Sign up at, or through the Quit by Phone or Quit in Person programs (while supplies last).

A sprain is an injury to a ligament that is caused by excessive stretching. For minor sprains, remember P.R.I.C.E. Protect the injured limb; you may want to use a splint or crutches. Rest the injured area. Ice the sprain as soon as possible after the injury; ice for about 20 minutes at a time, leaving about 45 minutes between treatments. Compress the sprained area using an elastic bandage or wrap. Elevate the injured area when you can, to help limit or prevent swelling. After two days, gently start using the injured area again. You should notice gradual, progressive improvement. If not, seek medical treatment.

Keep Your Tummy Comfy This Holiday Season



f the soundtrack of your holidays is more "Jingle Burps" (yep, that rude YouTube classic) than "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," your tummy's not alone. Maybe you saw the recent nationwide survey revealing that from Thanksgiving till New Year's Day, heartburn makes two out of three people less than holly-jolly. Or perhaps you've personally logged more minutes in the powder room than under the mistletoe, dealing with indigestion, constipation, gas, bloating or irritable bowel syndrome -- all made worse by holiday stress and Aunt Martha's wieners 'n' cheese dip. How to get back to the merry-making? We YOU Docs have some new ways to dial down digestion woes, including a few surprising foods that cause trouble, plus a waist-management buffet trick that helps you avoid both a Santa-sized belly and that "where's the bathroom" feeling. Belly-buster 1: An impossible to-do list. Juggling pre-dawn sales, cookie-baking marathons, parties, post-office lines and, oh yeah, your job, family and pets? Stress doesn't just boost stomach acid levels. It also makes even a little acid backwash feel like the world's worst heartburn. Soothing fix: Scratch one big thing from the list. We vote for the cookie baking! Instead, fill holiday platters and gift baskets with nuts, clementines, pomegranates, dark chocolate and dried cranberries. Also, carve out 10 minutes a day for YOU time; relaxation calms heartburn and IBS. Belly-buster 2: Too much sleigh time. Sitting for long stretches -- in planes, cars, behind eight tiny reindeer -- is a recipe for constipation and IBS flare-ups. Too much chair time also nearly triples your risk of serious heartburn. Soothing fix: Move around, even when you're traveling. Hike the airport if your flight's delayed. In the air, walk plane aisles whenever there's a chance, and walk before and after your flight (plan ahead). Pull over at highway rest stops for a five-minute stretch and stroll. Even a few minutes here and there halves heartburn risk, because it speeds digestion and keeps you upright. Helps IBS, constipation, and indigestion, too. Belly-buster 3: Eggnog, cocoa, lasagna, cheesecake, cream sauce. There's mounting evidence that an overload of dairy causes bloating,

gas and diarrhea in more people than anyone thought. The culprit is lactose, a milk sugar some people can't digest at all. Overloads can bother anyone. All the fat in creamy, cheesy stuff doesn't help indigestion and heartburn either. Soothing fix: Skip high-fat dairy year-round, not just now. Its saturated fat jams your arteries and inflates your waistline, as well as challenging your digestive system. Stick to one or two servings of low/no-fat dairy a day for its calcium (get 600 mg from food, 600 from a supplement). Belly-buster 4: Sugar-loaded and sugar-free sweets. Too much fructose (from foods sugared up with corn syrup or corn sugar) and too many sugar alcohols (from sweeteners like sorbitol, mannitol, maltitol and isomalt) can make your digestive system feel as overwhelmed as Santa's. Gassy and crampy, too. Avoid store-bought pies, cookies, ice cream and sweet drinks, which are usually packed with high-fructose corn syrup. Ditto for sugar-free chocolate and other treats laden with sugar alcohols. Soothing fix: See fix No. 2! Need something fancier? Peel and poach six firm pears with a cinnamon stick and a couple of inches of peeled, sliced fresh ginger for about 15 minutes. Chill, drizzle with melted dark chocolate, garnish with mint and walnuts. Bonus: Ginger's a great digestive aid. Belly-buster 5: Santa-sized portions. Maybe you're not devouring 20 million cookies during one long, busy night, but loading up at the office party or your neighbor's New Year's buffet is a classic recipe for bathroom-bound distress. Soothing fix: Outsmart Santa-sized portions by tasting everything ... but start by filling the center of your plate with veggies, salad and turkey breast or salmon. Then add small spoonfuls of the creamy, high-calorie stuff on the side. Your tummy will thank you. And your jeans will still fit in January. *** The YOU Docs, Mehmet Oz, host of "The Dr. Oz Show" and Mike Roizen of Cleveland Clinic, are authors of "YOU: Losing Weight." For more information go to

Vermont’s three time Division II CC champion Jeffrey Lusignan, of East Montpelier, recently placed second out of a field of 139 finishers in the IC4A University Division race. Lusignan set a new program record for the Van Cortland Park five-mile course of 25:39. Jeffrey surpassed the 26:06 clocking recorded by Brendan Rickert in the same championship last year. Lusignan also topped Rickert’s program-best 14th place finish in last year’s IC4A meet. Lusignan, who placed 23rd a year ago, earned his second straight “AllEast” honor. In addition, Lusignan closed out a stellar career by becoming the first man in program history to earn “All-New England,” “All-Northeast Conference,” and “All-East” honors in the same season. Decimated by injury and illness, the Sacred Heart men limped into the IC4A University Division race with only five athletes healthy enough to toe the starting line. Nevertheless, the men banded together, with each running a Van Cortland Park best, to place seventh in a field of 16 complete teams. Backing up Lusignan and Chris Connelly, freshman Aleksandr Morin fell just short of earning “All-East” honors himself, placing 31st overall, as the men equaled their

Riverside officials and staff will be on hand to receive driver input and answer questions. ■ New Year’s Eve will again bring race cars out of their warm beds to face the snow covered high banks of Riverside Speedway for the sixth annual Prehangover Enduro. The green flag is scheduled for 1 PM with an inclement weather date set for the following day. The race has a history of being one of the year’s most fun filled events and features four, six and eight cylinder cars, trucks and vans. New speedway promoter Curtis Robinson has billed the event as “just pure crazy winter fun” and expects entries from New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Quebec and Rhode Island.
