Whether through birth, personal relationships, campaign stops or "just passing through," Vermont has held unusual and interesting relationships with America's presidents. On February 21 at 7pm, President's Day will be commemorated at the Vermont History Museum in Montpelier. Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Mark Hudson will share stories of Vermont's encounters with the nation's chief executives with the illustrated presentation "Hail to the Chief: The American President in Vermont." Hudson says, "The nation's top executive has always held intrigue, and we hope to open up discussion and reflection about them with this special presentation." Two presidents, Chester A. Arthur and Calvin Coolidge claim Vermont as their birthplace, while the parents of others, including Rutherford B. Hayes and William Howard Taft, were born in Vermont. Prior to their election as presidents, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison visited the newly admitted state, taking particular interest in the state's sugar maples. In official capacities, on campaign, and on vacation, many others have visited the Green Mountain State. In each case, their visits were historic events. This event is free and open to the public. The Vermont History Museum is located at 109 State Street, right next door to the Vermont State House. Please contact Mark Hudson at (802) 4798515 for more information or look online at www.vermonthistory. org/calendar.

Montpelier, VT: JANICE PERRY IS LIVE ON-STAGE AGAIN. AT LNT’S WINTERFEST 2012 - CITY HALL ARTS CENTER, IN DOWNTOWN MONTPELIER. FEBRUARY 16-19. A “MUST SEE!” You just never know just what Janice Perry is going to do – or how far she will really go. And that makes for one wild ride of fun, and a side-splitting, energizing performance! Now, Perry is onstage with Not Just Another Pretty Face – and for the first time in several years – you have a chance to experience her! One of the World’s Most Respected Performance Artists- BBC Radio Janice Perry is a Hoot! Perry is an icon to Vermont’s counterculture… and this show goes a long way in showing why! - Jim Lowe, The Times Argus Lost Nation Theater is delighted to once again present Janice Perry onstage. It’s Not Just Another Pretty Face- A Retrospective, at Winterfest 2012. Four shows only, February 16-19, at City Hall Arts Center, downtown Montpelier. In Not Just Another Pretty Face, Perry laughs us through her vibrant collection of social criticism and political satire– from Marilyn Monroe through a few Gulf Wars, High Fashion, Joan of Arc, Erotica, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Mapplethorpe’s naked men and Censorship. And laugh we do! Perry’s been known to elicit non-stop laughter from audiences for minutes at a time, with a well-placed eyebrow raise. It’s Hilarious. Outrageous. Outlandish. Inventive.- and we haven’t event mentioned the outfits!! All from Perry’s particularly unique perspective! • Bizarre and Brainy- The Village Voice • The OTHER America- Hamburg Morgenpost • A master at the peak of perfection- Cologne Anzeiger • A cross between Doris Day and a high-velocity rifle- The London Independent • A Very funny woman! – The Times Argus Not Just Another Pretty Face: a retrospective integrates video clips with live performance in an evening of cultural criticism framed as comedy/theatre. The piece is an embodied record of US American socio/cultural history from 1981 to the present, covering a slew of topics from sexuality, to war, and censorship. Go online to lostnationtheater.org for excerpts from the show. Documentation video clips from past work introduce live performance pieces and live performance pieces introduce the video clips. The work is both riotously funny, and serious. It is suitable for a mature audience. (content & language warning) “Perry is a veteran showman, having taken various versions of her shows around the United States and Europe. The key to these shows’ success is Perry herself. All-too- human, she reacts and reels, and finally laughs at the blows life has delivered.” –The Times Argus Perry began touring in 1981 with her groundbreaking solo performances. Her work has been adapted for television, radio and print in the USA and Europe for NPR, PBS, BBC 2, Channel 4, and BBC Radio 3. If you want to laugh – you’ve got to see this show! Get up close and personal with Janice Perry in Not Just Another Pretty Face - a retrospective at Lost Nation Theater’s intimate theater within Montpelier City Hall Arts Center.

“This place is great! The nurses took really good care of us. They checked on us a lot and gave us great support - and plenty of private time too. It’s been wonderful.” Shyanne Gonyaw and Austin Cote are parents! Their son, Saiben James, arrived on February 7 and weighed 7lb/1oz and was 191/4 inches long. He was sleeping peacfully in his papa’s arms when we stopped by. Mom and dad seemed to not quite believe he was really there...so tiny and perfect and peaceful. Saiben and his parents live in Barre. Best wishes for a happy and healthy life.

Ask friends and family to do the same. • Set clear rules for teens about all drug use, including “Don’t share medicine.” and “Always follow the medical provider’s advice and dosages.” • Properly dispose of old or unneeded medicines.

Peter Shumlin announced a revised policy proposal regarding Vermont’s Health Exchange, a third ad quickly hit the airwaves.

In preparation for the spring thaw, a free emergency preparedness workshop is being offered to local businesses, their staff, property owners and others who would like to learn how to properly prepare for disasters large and small. It will be held on Thursday, February 23rd from 8:30am to 10am in Montpelier City Hall, hosted by Montpelier Alive and presented by Vermont Occupational and Safety and Health Administration (VOSHA) and the Montpelier Fire Department. Every spring, the City of Montpelier is on high alert, monitoring the river levels, and preparing for possible flooding. The City issues notices through the Montpelier Alerts system, and Montpelier Alive maintains contacts of all downtown stakeholders in the event of a disaster. “We keep our contacts current,” said Phayvanh Luekhamhan, Executive Director of Montpelier Alive, “though we hope never to have to use them.” Despite the standard prevention measures, Montpelier experienced two flooding events downtown in 2011.

On average, 12 workers are killed on the job daily in America - that's 4,547 people per year. Every year approximately 3.3 million other workers suffer from serious occupational injuries and illnesses. “VOSHA realizes that the vast majority of employers want to do the right thing and protect their workers from harm on the job - and we want to help,” said George Walker, Senior Enforcement Officer for VOSHA. The workshop will feature Dan Whipple, Compliance Assistance Specialist (VOSHA), Robert Gowans, Montpelier Fire Chief, and Glenn Moore, Building Inspector for the City of Montpelier. Topics covered will include a review of OSHA regulations, fire safety, life safety, and the city’s building codes, especially as they relate to downtown flooding. Everyone is welcome, though reservations are requested. To register for this free workshop, please contact George Walker, Senior Enforcement Officer (VOSHA) at (802) 8282033 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cutler Memorial Library
The Waterbury Public Library is proud to be hosting Mr. Sydney Lea, Vermont’s new Poet Laureate, at the Crossett Brook Middle School on Thursday, February 16 at 7pm. Sydney Lea, of Newbury, was appointed as Vermont’s Poet Laureate in November for a four-year term. He succeeds Ruth Stone in this position. This appointment is made by the Governor based on the recommendation of a distinguished panel. He is the prolific author of a number of collections of poetry, a novel, and two books of essays. He has been described as “a man in the woods with his head full of books, and a man in books with his head full of woods,” and his poetry as having “dramatic intensity, narrative momentum, and musicality... evocative descriptions of northern New England’s landscapes, animal and plant life, and the seasonal panorama.” Through all of his books, Lea has paid particular attention to the stories of generations living alongside one another in north-country villages, including the interactions of “old-timers” and relative newcomers. His affection for story, moreover, an affection derived in no small measure from men and women elders in New England, colors his poetry, just as a relish for the musical properties of the word colors his prose. His lifelong passion for the natural world informs almost his every utterance. This program is free, and light refreshments will be available.

By Cathy Systo, AAMS f you’re of a certain age, the new year means you’re that much closer to a day you may have anticipated with a combination of humor and resignation — specifically, the day you’re eligible for Social Security. But just because you can take Social Security, it doesn’t mean you must take it. So, should you? Before we get to that question, let’s review the basic rules governing Social Security payments. You can typically start collecting benefits at age 62, but you’ll get only about 75% of what you’d receive if you waited until your “full” retirement age, which varies according to your birth year but is most likely 66. You’ll get even bigger monthly checks if you delay collecting them until you’re past 66, and you’ll “max out” on your payments once you reach 70. So, the question boils down to this: Should you start collecting Social Security early — thereby receiving smaller, but more numerous, checks — or later, when your checks will be bigger but fewer? If you really need the money once you reach 62, you’ve already got your answer. But if you could potentially afford to wait, we recommend you view your decision through a LENS: • L: Your projected lifespan —You can’t see into the future, but given your family history and general health, you can make an educated guess about your projected longevity. If you’re fairly confident that, once you reach 66, you’ve still got another two or more decades in front of you, you may want to consider delaying taking Social Security past age 62. • E: Your employment status — If you’re under full retirement
When Should You Start Taking Social Security?
age — between 62 and 66 — then for every two dollars you earn over $14,640 (in 2012), you’ll lose one dollar in Social Security benefits. In the months before you reach your full retirement age, for every three dollars you earn over $38,880 (again, for 2012), you’ll lose one dollar in benefits. But starting in the month you reach your full retirement age, you can earn as much as you want without losing any benefits. • N: Your need, including your other sources of retirement income — If you have a pension, or you’ve built substantial resources in your IRA, your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, and you can support your income needs with modest withdrawals from these accounts, you might decide it’s worthwhile to delay taking Social Security to maximize your benefits. Remember that regardless of your Social Security decision, you typically would have to pay a 10% early withdrawal penalty if you started taking withdrawals from these accounts before you reach age 59½. • S: Your spouse/marital status — If you’re single, you basically just need to think of yourself when making this decision. But it’s a different story if you’re married. If you die first, your spouse can keep receiving his or her own Social Security benefit or receive yours — whichever is larger. Consequently, you and your spouse will want to coordinate when you take Social Security benefits so that you can maximize the benefit for the spouse likeliest to live longer. The choice of when to start taking Social Security can affect your lifestyle throughout your retirement years — so weigh all the factors and make the choice that’s right for you.

Teenagers are dangerous. That is a fact. Ask any beat cop. One of the primary jobs of every local police force is to protect us and our property from troublemaking teens. I, too, was pretty unhappy back in high school – and not just because 90s music was so awful. I completely understand why some teenagers are angry and volatile. Those who are under 18 and still living under somebody else’s roof hardly have any control over their own lives. And because they don’t have much life experience or mature perspective, their little everyday problems and embarrassments feel like humiliating catastrophes. This is a perfect recipe for erratic and antisocial behavior. Fortunately, society is set up to keep teenagers in check, so that they really only have the power to hurt themselves (and drive their parents crazy). “Chronicle” is a half-way decent sci-fi drama about why some teens are so desperately miserable and what might happen if a boy was suddenly given unlimited superpowers. The first half hour is terrific. We get to know Andrew: a fairly normal and sympathetic high school senior. Andrew’s life stinks. His mom is dying. His dad is an abusive drunk. He has no friends and he doesn’t have the confidence or the knowhow to get a girlfriend. His cool cousin Matt hangs out with Andrew, but that is partially out of pity and family responsibility. The action begins when Andrew, Matt, and a random jock from their high school stumble upon a mysterious glowing object that immediately turns them all into indestructible supermen. The scene is less ridiculous than it sounds, I swear. “Chronicle” is the anti-Spider-Man. With great power comes very little responsibility. The two popular guys use their newfound abilities in innocuous ways, like making Pringles levitate out of the can and into their mouths. Angry Andrew has a different agenda: violent revenge against anyone who ever wronged him and anyone who gets in his way. First time director Josh Trank convincingly demonstrates why teenagers can be extremely dangerous. With no wife, no kids, and no job, a young man has nothing to lose and no one’s feelings to consider but his own. Sadly, the film really falls apart in the final act. The last twenty minutes is nothing more than one long, boring, destructive, predictable showdown between Andrew and Matt. Yawn. It’s a shame, because a poignant ending could have turned “Chonicle” into a great movie.

In Support of City Place
Editor: It has been brought to my attention that Barre has an amazing opportunity with the Department of Education to team up and be a centralized location that will also benefit the downtown revitalization that Barre so much needs. As not only a manager of a downtown business but also a Barre City resident, I see such a need to increase future potential for downtown Barre with the proposed City Place project. With the understanding that I have of City Place being easily accessible for the Department of Education and not only to be a convenient and centralized location but as well as many parking areas currently available and proposed with the Barre Master plan. Also there are many local businesses that will be able to provide services to the Department of Education workers within walking distance. Although I do understand that the DMV building in Montpelier is also considered as well, I do see potential parking issues as well as not adding more tax revenue of the proposed City Place to Barre. Furthermore there are an abundance of State offices in Montpelier currently and Barre is fully ready to welcome the Department of Education to our Downtown. Once again I am in full support for the City Place project and look forward to welcoming the Department of Education to downtown Barre.
Editor: The Friends of the Aldrich Public Library in Barre want to thank everyone who helped make our 11th Annual Chinese Banquet/ Auction such a success.

Chet Briggs and Henry Huang, our chefs, with their kitchen staff presented an extraordinary 10 course meal enjoyed by all. Jean Mudgett managed the servers, who ably kept the tables full of food. A very big thank you to all the businesses and individuals who donated goods and services for the auction. Our auctioneer, David Sanguinetti, kept things lively. I also want to thank the staff of the library including Karen Lane, Director, for the support and assistance they give us. Our projects make it possible for us to provide funding to the library for various programs including Authors at the Aldrich, Graphic Novel Group, Reading Book Group, Senior Days, Arts and Crafts Days, Children's Summer Reading Program and Story Hour. We also provide funds for the purchase of new books and AV materials. Through your help this event raised over $5000 for our library. Thank you all.

ave you ever noticed that our world is just ﬁlling up with warnings and instructions on pretty much everything we come into contact with? The nanny state in which we are presently living, and I don’t mean the State of Vermont, even though it certainly epitomizes the qualiﬁcations, has succeeded in instructing us on how, why, where and when to do just about everything we do. It has also cautioned us strongly against the things we ought not to do, and has given us reasons why not, in the form of warnings. Following is a list of things that have instructions and warnings. I took the liberty of improving the warnings where I could. Don’t thank me. It’s just the kind of guy I am. Firstly, medical instructions, and by that I mean the instructions actually ON containers of medicine, are much too small to read. What we need is a big label that states that you should ﬁnd your glasses, before reading the instructions, if you can ﬁnd your glasses, without your glasses. Secondly, we all really need to listen to the warnings on TV ads, spoken faster than a speeding bullet, as to the side effects of medicines those ads are trying to get us to try. The voice hurriedly says something like: “Use of this product may result in warts, headaches, bleeding from the ears, and/or suicidal thoughts or actions.” Huh? Suicidal thoughts or ACTIONS?… ACTIONS? If you don’t believe me, pay attention to those ads. Now, do we understand what suicidal actions are? In an attempt to cure my dry skin or constipation I might try to kill myself? It hardly seems worth it. The warning should just advise us to avoid that medicine and eat more ﬁber. It is also my opinion that those well-meaning health warnings on cigarette packs are just plain stupid. Come on now. If, at this point in your life and in history, you don’t know that cigarettes are dangerous to your health, just go ahead and smoke. Mankind has never been able to ﬁx that level of stupid, and I doubt that warnings on cigarette packs will be able to either. Sorry to be so blunt. I just don’t want you to die. I have found, through personal experience, that words on the labels of shampoo and conditioner are also way too small, just as they are on medicines. The shampoo companies seem to be proud of their brand, or at least proud of the snappy names and scents they have come up with for their products. Still, they refuse to, at least in large enough print to be read, tell you which product, shampoo or conditioner, you have in your wet little hand. Even if I found my glasses in time to read the instructions on my medicines, wearing glasses in the shower is not convenient. Braille shampoo bottles would work, but how about just writing the word ‘shampoo’ or ‘conditioner’ in print larger than the width of an un-shampooed human hair? While we’re discussing hygiene products, (Is that what we’re doing?) how about this? I happened to read the warnings on the back of the hand sanitizer bottle on my desk at work. The instructions actually included the admonition to not use this 90-percent alcohol product near an open ﬂame, or inside the mouth, or in the eyes or ears. The instructions should have also said to especially stay away from open ﬂames if you have already put the product in your mouth, eyes, and ears. Here’s one of my favorites. It has always amazed me that they
Utterly Useless Warnings and Instructions
By G. E. Shuman still do the seat belt instructional demonstration on airplanes. You do need to pay attention to those, if you have not ridden in a car in the past forty years. Frankly, and still in my opinion, adults shouldn’t be forced by law to wear seatbelts in cars either. If you want to make a bloody mess of your windshield, that’s your right. It’s your windshield. But please buckle up your kid. He may not share your self destructive gene. Notice: putting the word ‘FRAGILE’ on anything shipped by, through or to anyone, is a waste time and ink, and simply challenges the men in brown (or blue and orange) to see how fragile it really is. Fragile is also often associated with the word ‘valuable.’ So, you might just write ‘STEAL ME’ on the box that will be left on someone’s front step. (It’s the same number of letters.) Lawn mower caution stickers almost bring me to tears. Although they are written in a very serious and straightforward way, what they are really saying is: “Don’t put your stupid feet under this thing, because there is a big, sharp, steel blade spinning around at about a hundred miles an hour under there (Hear the motor?), and it will cut your feet off if you do. *Just in case you didn’t know.” There is a similar sign on my snow blower. That sign politely gets the point across to: “Keep your pudgy ﬁngers out of the auger, because it’s like a big fat food processor, and your big fat hand will become instantly processed.” Through reading labels I have also found that cold medicines may cause drowsiness. Well, isn’t that what you want them to do, so that you can sleep? Those pills, and also sleeping pills, always come with the warning: “Don’t drive or use heavy equipment.” Maybe that’s my problem. I keep using all that heavy equipment when I’m sick and trying to sleep. Hotel swimming pools also have warnings to not leave children unattended… I would like to add the words: ‘if you want them back.’ Here are a few more of my favorites: You know those anti-moisture packets they put in shoe boxes? They always have ‘do not eat‘ printed on them. Wow. Hair dryers always come with a plastic tag permanently attached to the cord. It says ‘Do not use while in the bathtub.’ It should also say ‘If you do, you deserve what happens, including promoting the theory of survival of the smartest.’ SLIPPERY WHEN WET! What isn’t? CAUTION. BRIDGES FREEZE BEFORE ROAD! The sign is on the bridge… kind’a too late. MOTORCYCLISTS USE CAUTION! Nawww just put your feet up and take a nap. Sign on gas pump: ‘No Smoking‘… should continue with ‘or you soon will be.’ Moose Crossing. Only moose can cross here. Deer should look for a deer crossing sign and proceed with caution. Slow children. (Well, you have my sympathies and at least you recognize the situation.) I will end with some pretty useless instructions I once actually read on a toothpaste tube. The instructions said: ‘Squeeze from bottom and work your way up.’ It sounded like my toothpaste tube was having a lot more fun than I was.

February 15, 2012
By Judy Reiss can’t be the only person in the world who finds this topic important… and what it is might be petty, but so be it! I just hate it when someone I really don’t know, or who I am meeting for the first time, calls me “Judy.” How many times have you (and I) gone to a doctor’s office for the first time, and a young, attractive doctor comes into the room and says, “Hello, Judy, I’m Doctor Brown (or so and so).” He doesn’t say, “My name is Joe Blow,” oh no, he says, “I’m Doctor Blow,” and he feels empowered to call me, an old woman that he doesn’t know, by my first name while calling himself Doctor Brown. Really, I hate that scenario. I think that there should be a class in medical school, or whatever school someone is attending that teaches the young of today how to meet and greet new people. They should never, ever call a new person by their first name. Oh no, if I want you to call me “Judy” I will ask you to do so. I think that someone, somewhere decided that especially for a medical person, it was a way of making the new patient feel relaxed to call them by their first name. But whoever that was, was wrong! I can’t tell you how much I hate it when a young person calls me Judy when this is the first time we have met and then compounds the error by referring to himself or herself as “Doctor So and So” rather than using their first name. Who am I? Certainly not his or her friend. I don’t think that I am being unreasonable. I know that the day of politeness is almost gone but there are a few of us senior citizens still left who were taught how to meet and greet. Believe me, if I ever called my teacher, my friends’ parents, the police or really anyone in power or that I haven’t met by their first name, I would have been severely punished. Actually, as I think about it, when I first moved to Waitsfield and started my daycare, I met lots of people who I thought were older than I was and I would have never, ever called them by their first name. In fact, after I got to know them well and they asked me to call them by their first name, I had a hard time doing so! I was brought up to call everyone Mr. or Mrs. And making the change to such familiarity was difficult. Of all the people that I know, I only know one who encourages or allows her grandchildren to call her by her first name. Not her children, mind you, but her grandchildren. And when they are in public, it just doesn’t sound or feel right. On the other hand, I know lots of people who are my age or older who are wonderful friends and not one of their their children or grandchildren would ever even consider calling their elders by their first name. I know that this form of respect has gone the way of the dodo and even the littlest of children call everyone by their first name. I think I know the reason why politeness and manners are no

longer considered important. I am assuming that it is because children now have a completely different role in society. No longer are children asked to be seen but not heard. Nor are they considered to be children and ones that have to earn their place in society as they grow up. Nope, now children are considered the engine that runs the train and really all aspects of society. Children are given a whole selection of food and if they don’t like something, they don’t have to eat it. I can hardly believe it but it is true. Eating what is on your plate certainly doesn’t apply to the children of the household! And there isn’t any aspect of their lives that is thwarted if they want it. Children rule! And that means that if it makes them uncomfortable to call you Mr. or Mrs., then they can and do call you by your first name. My grandparents must be twirling in their graves. But I digress. I know that it isn’t possible for me or anyone else to teach the children of today what we were taught and considered “manners,” but I am also not paying them for anything. But I am paying lots of other people and unless I know them and have asked them to forgo the formal salutation of calling me Mrs. Reiss, I don’t want them to call me Judy. And I, in turn, will call them Dr. or Mr. or Mrs. Am I wrong? I don’t think so. Back to when I was young, my parents had lots of friends who, to a person, I called Mr. and Mrs. And as I grew up I found it almost impossible to change that salutation to either their first name or even Aunt or Uncle. Eventually I became old enough to make the change, but I just couldn’t do it. Nope, the manners and formality that I was taught when I was young stayed with me and it just wasn’t possible for me to change. And that was that! What I also find interesting is that the doctors or medical people that I have met recently call me Mrs. Reiss depending on their age! And not mine. The older person was taught the same rules as I was and they continue to practice what they learned at their mother’s knee! It is interesting isn’t it? And what should probably be done is exactly the opposite. The younger ones should and the older ones maybe “yes” and maybe “no.” So here is my final word on this. If you are younger than I am, which is 72 going on 73, and I don’t know you, please call me Mrs. Reiss and I will do the same. When I get to know you and want to make our relationship more friendly, I will ask you to call me “Judy.” Fair? I think so. And if you know anyone in a position of power at any medical school, tell them to insist on a class for the medical students about how to present yourself and greet others. They might not like the course but believe me, future patients will. Until then, ask that young person who has your health in his or her hands to call you Mr. or Mrs. because, unfortunately, they won’t think of it themselves!

Justin Morrill: A Leader in Higher Education
ustin Morrill was born in Strafford in 1810 and was the oldest of 10 children. His school career ended at the age of 14, and he took a job with a storekeeper at $30 a year. In 1831, he formed a partnership with his first employer. He subsequently withdrew from the partnership, married, and embarked on a congressional career. In 1854, at the age of 45, he was elected as a Whig to Congress by 59 votes and began a congressional career which encompassed 32 years in the Senate and 12 in the House of Representatives. It has been recorded that he gave over 100 speeches, and in the congressional records, his name appeared over 2000 times relating to bill introduction, resolutions and speeches.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of Justin Morrill’s greatest achievement, the passage of the land grant college bill in 1862.
Biographer Joseph Hills wrote: “A clearness and simplicity of his expositions, his remarkable grasp of details, as well as of broad, general principles, and his unfailing courtesy toward opponents, coupled with unyielding firmness in maintaining the rights of himself or his committee, made him remarkably successful in guiding a piece of projected legislation through the confused tangle of a running debate.” Morrill had much to do with the construction of important buildings in Washington, such as the Washington Monument and helping with the design of the Congressional Library. Another important contribution was his sponsorship of the Morrill tariff. Enacted the same year the Civil War began, it provided additional funds for President Lincoln to finance the war. One of Lincoln’s biographers said the tariff had “double affect of materially increasing the customs receipts and stimulating the productive energies of the country. It went into operation on the first of April,

When he lived with his daughter and son-in-law, their dog was dying of cancer and he made a customized casket for him. He told them they had two old dogs living with them. For each of his grandchildren, he made wooden toys, military tanks, trains, farm trucks and even guns. He even sold a few of these. Lastly, he made his own wooden urn. It was originally a casket for someone's cat but they never picked it up. So, he told his son, when my time comes, you can use this for me. He was very practical. Douglas was a genius in the eyes of his children and others. There wasn't anything he didn't know. No answer was a simple one. If you asked him what something was, he'd explain it in detail. He also loved to type letters on his old manual typewriter. Douglas was known and loved by many. He enjoyed talking about the old times, telling jokes and was a regular voice on WDEV. Even when he lived with his daughter in Texas for a short time, he quickly found a radio station and was a regular on the morning flea market. All who had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Douglas found him to be intriguing and fun. He was known by many and a friend to all. He will be greatly missed.

1861, and thus, its quickening and strengthening help came just at the opportune time, when the nation was compelled to gird up its loins for a gigantic war.” Morrill’s greatest achievement was the land grant college bill, passed in 1862. This legislation gave every state 30,000 acres of public domain based upon its population. The law provided for a college of mechanic arts an agriculture in each state. The president of Cornell University, Andrew White, said of the Morrill Act: “While the windows of the Senate-house were rattling with the enemy’s cannon, those men had such faith in the destiny of the Nation, and such trust in the arts of peace that they quietly and firmly legislated into being this great, comprehensive system of industrial and scientific education. In all American annals I know of no more noble utterance of faith in national destiny out from the midst of national calamity. It was one of the most beneficient measures ever proposed in any country.” White called Morrill “one of the most useful and far-seeing statesmen our country has ever known.” On the occasion of Senator Morrill’s 86th birthday, the following poem was read: Most Honored Friend: ‘Tis marvelous done, Today the chariot of the circling sun, With burnished wheel and grandly waving plume, With garlands fresh from friendship’s sweet perfume, Hath passed at eighty-six, The natal day. How far away it seems, Yet the long vista of man’s brightened dreams So well fulfilled, so truly bravely fought So well fulfilled, so truly bravely fraught, With patriotic deeds and lofty purpose wrought We to thy name affix. Morrill died in December, 1898. Upon his death, Massachusetts Senator George Hoar said, “For nearly half a century, Vermont has spoken through him in our National Council, until, one after the other, almost every question affecting the public welfare has been decided in accordance with his opinion.” Senator Bill Doyle serves on the Senate Education Committee and Senate Economic Affairs Committee, and is the Senate Minority Leader.

A new 20-bed inflatable portable hospital and a mass care trailer stockpiled with medical and mass care supplies purchased by the Vermont Department of Health was on display Jan. 30 and 31 at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Jct. Hospital and public health responders attended a two-day training session on its functions, set-up, take-down and maintenance. Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD, Public Health Preparedness Chief Chris Bell, and Peter Coffey, interim director of Vermont Emergency Management discussed the importance of this new medical surge capacity to respond to “all-hazards” public health events and emergencies. The hospital cost approximately $175,000 and was purchased with Public Health Emergency Preparedness grant funds awarded to the Health Department from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). There are now two portable hospitals in Vermont, including one housed at the Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin. “These pop-up hospitals are sophisticated – they have negative pressure capability to isolate people with highly infectious illness, and they are fully equipped to handle most medical needs,” said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD. “They can be set up quickly in an emergency situation where assessment, triage and treatment can save lives, used to temporarily ease a patient overflow situation, or stand up at a large gathering of people.”

ReSOURCE: A Nonprofit Community Enterprise and Rebuild Waterbury are thinking outside the box… and outside state lines to solicit and collect donated furniture for Tropical Storm Irene victims in Vermont. For the last several months, the two nonprofits have been working together to help Vermonters recover from the August flooding that left many without essential household items, including furniture. In September 2011, volunteer Mary Miller from Waterbury contacted the Clarion Inn on Martha’s Vineyard in response to an email from their owners offering aid to Vermonters. The Inn was about to undergo a renovation, updating all of the furniture in the 34 room facility. The Clarion wanted to donate their used furniture to Vermont flood victims, but needed to find a way to get the furniture off the island. That was where things stood when Eileen Simpson took over as case manager for ReBuild Waterbury. By a stroke of fate, the Clarion’s new furniture was delivered by Cape Cod Express, whose owners have family in Vermont and who also wanted to help. They offered to donate their services and equipment to move the furniture off Martha’s Vineyard and drive it to their warehouse in Middleborough, Massachusetts. The next part of the puzzle for Simpson was figuring out how to transport a semi (truck) full of furniture from Middleborough to Barre, Vermont.
Crossing State Lines to Help Flood Victims Rebuild
n n n
That’s when she contacted ReSOURCE. ReSOURCE contacted Kyle Bellavance of Bellavance Trucking in Barre. Bellavance agreed to (at cost) pick up and transport the semi load of furniture from Middleborough to Barre. Bellavance also agreed to store the donations in one of their storage trailers free of charge, until it can all be distributed to families in need. Once the furniture arrives in Barre, a portion of it will be given to families who have already expressed a need for the items through Rebuild Waterbury. The remaining inventory will be sold and/or donated through ReSTORE Barre; a program of ReSOURCE. Residents who suffered a loss of essential household items to their primary residence from Tropical Storm Irene, can apply for a voucher for ReSTORE Barre (or ReSTORE Burlington) to be used to help purchase basic household items, including furniture. The transport is scheduled for February 13, and although it is not yet confirmed what the entire inventory will include, the donation is expected to contain hard wood furniture, bed frames, dressers, tables, chairs, night stands, and lamps.

Keeping a food diary while dieting may double your weight loss. Researchers studied over 1700 people who were overweight or obese. Participants went to weekly group meetings, were told to cut 500 calories per day, engage in 30 minutes per day of moderate exercise, and follow the low-fat low-sodium DASH diet. They were also encouraged to record their daily food intake and exercise numbers. The more food records they kept, the more weight they lost.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH
HOUSING STRESS REDUCTION
Sherry Rhynard, RWC, CBS
Wellness Consultant Stress Management Coach
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ideas are finally reaching those who can appreciate them. But don’t expect any immediate reactions. That will come later. Meanwhile, a personal matter needs your attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your energy levels are rising, and you’re feeling restless and eager to get into some activity, whether it’s for profit or just for fun. In either case, the aspects are highly favorable, so go for it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship seems to be winding down from passionate to passive. It’s up to you to decide what the next step will be. But don’t wait too long to take the initiative. Delay could create more problems. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A decision looms. But be very sure that this is what you really want before you sign or say anything. Once you act, there’ll be little or no wiggle room for any adjustments. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Money matters improve, but you still need to be cautious with your spending. Also, set aside that Leonine pride for a bit and apologize for contributing to that misunderstanding. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A tempting financial situation could make the usually unflappable Virgo rush in before checking things out. Be alert to possible hidden problems. Get the facts before you act.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It’s nice to know that you’re finally getting due credit for your efforts. You also should know that new opportunities will follow. A family member brings important news. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Any uncertainty that begins to cloud an impending decision could signal a need to re-examine your reasons for wanting to take on this commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You benefit from taking time out of your currently hectic schedule to do more contemplation or meditation. This will help re-energize you, both in body and soul. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nursing hurt feelings can zap the energies of even the usually self-confident Sea Goat. Best advice: Move forward. Success is the best balm for a painful ego. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A display of temperament surprises you, as well as those around you. It could be all that pressure you’re under. Consider letting someone help you see it through. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Some things don’t seem to be working out as you’d hoped. Don’t fret. Instead, take some time out to reassess your plans and see where changes could be made. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy traveling and meeting people. You are especially good with children and would make an excellent teacher.

Support for the people who need it most
Respite care is simply a way of supporting home-based caregivers by providing them with a much-needed break, or respite, from the pressure and stress of fulltime caregiving. Respite care allows home caregivers precious time to rest and recharge. It lets them focus on people and projects they may have been forced to neglect.
People who have used our respite care service call it “a real lifesaver.”

Gov. Peter Shumlin signed into law the ‘I Am Vermont Strong’ license plate bill last Thursday, authorizing Vermonters to purchase the $25 plate and affix it to the front of their vehicles. Money raised by the sales will go to the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund to help people impacted by Tropical Storm Irene, as well as the Vermont Foodbank. “Although the Vermont Strong ethic has enabled our state to make huge strides toward recovery following Irene, there is still enormous need remaining,” the Governor said. “The ‘I Am Vermont Strong’ plate is a symbol of our commitment -- financial and personal -- to help every family find permanent housing and every Vermonter get back to work.” The Vermont Disaster Relief Fund was created following the spring flooding a year ago. When Irene struck Vermont in August, Gov. Shumlin formalized and established a governing body for

the fund, which is chaired by David Coates of Colchester. The fund is the primary vehicle for providing disaster assistance to individuals. "Helping to rebuild the lives of flood survivors will take millions and millions of dollars. The proceeds from the sale of these Vermont Strong license plates will help us reach our very ambitious goal to raise $10 million by the first anniversary of Irene. Every dollar contributed to the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund goes directly to help flood survivors," said Coates. At Thursday's bill signing ceremony, Gov. Shumlin bought an I Am Vermont Strong commemorative plate and presented it to the Corliss family of Berlin, who escaped the raging floodwaters by boat and ended up holding on to a tree for survival. Bernie and April Corliss were the first recipients of assistance from the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund. They moved back into their mobile home that they rebuilt using these funds, two weeks before Christmas. The Governor said the bill signing was an opportunity to celebrate how far Vermont has come in recovering from the devastating storm that left so many families homeless and businesses damaged. He acknowledged the hard work of the media, FEMA, local communities and individuals, utility and road crews, state employees and so many others who rallied for Vermont after the storm hit. In addition, he stressed that there is still much to be done – families without permanent housing, businesses struggling to recover, farms facing feed shortages and concerns about damage to fields, and more. He urged Vermonters to purchase the I Am Vermont Strong license plate to help with fundraising to provide individuals and families with needed financial assistance. There are also fundraising options that focus on businesses, farms, individual communities and other targeted groups. Gov. Shumlin applauded several businesses and organizations that have stepped forward to help with the I Am Vermont Strong license plate drive: - Jay Peak Resort bought 1,000 plates to sell at the resort, and is challenging other ski areas to participate. - The Vermont Ski Areas Association is providing prizes, including lift tickets and lodgCare ing packages, to include in some plate envelopes.

The money was raised by contributions from VFWs throughout the state and a $9000 matching grant from the VFW Headquarters in Washington, D.C. The full event was captured on ORCA cable TV and Channel 44. A VFW committee reviewed the requests which covered all types of registered veterans and their families, not just combat soldiers.

Power in a legislature like Vermont’s isn’t about who can contribute to whose re-election, or who can block contributions to whose re-election. Power becomes about the perception of power – and how that perception becomes reality, simply by a sort of implicit consent from one’s colleagues. And that makes it tenuous. If you push too hard in the wrong direction, that illusion shatters. If you try to assert too much power, your bluff may well be called. Case in point: H.97 and the Vermont arm of the American Federation of Teachers. H.97 passed out of the House in the last legislative session. As originally introduced, H.97 would have allowed home-based and center-based child care workers to organize as a union, allowing them to “collectively bargain” with the state over matters of concern to them professionally, such as subsidy rates, training requirements, etc. It’s unusual, but a model which – to varying degrees – has been enacted for this industry in several other states. In the sausage-making factory that is the House of Representatives, the bill went through a lot of changes. First, center-based staff were removed from the bill at the behest of some politically powerful center owners. Then, the list of issues that would be allowed to be “collectively bargained” with the state was limited. What was left over was far from revolutionary, but relatively noncontroversial. The bill had the support of Governor Shumlin, had passed the House, and moved to the Senate where it received a lessthan-welcoming reception by Senate President Pro-Tem John Campbell (D-Windsor), who shelved it until the 2012 session. Last week the bill probably self-destructed – or rather, its primary backers (Vermont AFT) blew it up. AFT has been organizing child care professionals for years, and if these professionals do win collective bargaining rights – even modest ones – it is the AFT which will represent them. The implications to this within labor circles should not be underestimated. Across the nation, unions have been under attack. Here in Vermont, H.97 offered the chance for significant union expansion. In Vermont – as in every other state – there is more than a little interunion rivalry and jockeying for position. In this case, the Vermont NEA (which represents teachers) was very leery of a bill that would launch AFT to new prominence, and even worked against the bill behind the scenes when it was first introduced. The AFT weathered the squabbling. It got a bill (albeit a scaleddown one) through the House. With each victory came a little more of that perception of power, and all that remained to be done was to get the bill past Campbell. And then they reportedly overplayed their hand. Campbell – and many other legislators – had been increasingly frustrated by what they saw as needlessly heavy-handed tactics by the AFT in support of the bill. Finally, according to Campbell, AFT (and Vermont AFL/CIO) head Ben Johnson slid a piece of paper across the table that showed the amount of union spending on the campaigns of Campbell and Democrats in what he felt to be an implicit threat, or quid pro quo demand. This was too much for Campbell, who pulled the plug on H.97 last week, rather than “reward bad behavior.” Make no mistake – Campbell wanted to kill this bill. Johnson merely gave him the excuse he was looking for. Word emerged after the kerfuffle that Campbell may have softened his stance a bit, and the bill could still get hearings. It may be a change of heart on his part, or it may be that he considered the ramifications of thousands of voters receiving union endorsement mailings (endorsements which will largely go to Democrats). Whatever the case, the AFT has had their power diminished by this affair, making the point that power in the Statehouse is mercurial, and only exists insofar as you don’t try to overextend it. Power, Weakness, and Unintended Consequences Speaking of the perception of Statehouse power, Governor Shumlin may have been seen by some opponents as ceding too much too quickly on his signature issue. In response to pressure from large businesses, the Governor relented on the requirement in his original Health Care reform plan that would require them to participate in a state-managed insurance “exchange” to purchase coverage. Businesses are concerned about the potential for extra costs and lack of control over coverage options, while reform proponents see large-scale participation in the exchange as a necessary step towards a “single-payer” state insurance system. But now lobbyists representing smaller business are saying, if they can do it, why not us? What was meant as a concession to firm up support for the bill may well end up seen as a crack in Shumlin’s commitment that looks like weakness. Expect more interest groups in the Statehouse to try to expand that crack as far as they can, now that they smell the policy blood in the water.

Q: I have posters that are souvenirs from two political conventions, the 1988 Democratic Convention in Atlanta and the 1988 Republican Convention in New Orleans. Each poster has a paragraph that states they were printed on recycled paper gathered from the convention floor. They are commemorative prints, and I wonder if they have any value. -Virginia, New Port Richey, Fla. A: I spoke to several serious collectors of political memorabilia, and they seem to agree that your posters are worth about $20 each. A good general reference is “Warman’s Political Collectibles: Identification and Price Guide” by Dr. Enoch L. Nappen (Krause, $24.99). *** Q: I am trying to find some information about two bronze plates that I have. Both are stamped “The Henry Bonnard Bronze Company, NY” and they depict what seem to be a war victory and a celestial scene. I’d like to contact someone who can give me information regarding their significance and estimated value. -- Barry, via email A: Henry Bonnard and his factory produced important medal castings during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. For example, the foundry was commissioned to do decorative work at the Pennsylvania
capitol. One of the most notable workers at the foundry was Frederic Remington, whose casts from the company are highly valuable and collectible. MIR Appraisal Services can help you determine a value for your bronze plates. You should expect to pay for this service. The contact information is 307 North Michigan Ave., Suite 308, Chicago, IL 60601; appraisers@MIRgallery.com; and 312-814-8510. *** Q: I have a working Webcor tape recorder with two large spools for rewinding the tape. Is there any value to this item? -- Bill, Amherst, N.H. A: Without knowing the model number, it is a little difficult to give you an exact answer, but let me provide you with my best guess. I checked with several shops that specialize in vintage electronic equipment, and I found a Webcor that I think might be similar to the one you have -a 1952 Webcor two-track, two-speed reel-to-reel model with four heads and tube amp. It is in working order and priced at $50, which I think accurately reflects the current market. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Dachshund’s Odd Behavior
DEAR PAW’S CORNER: When we give my miniature Dachshund, “Peg,” a chew treat, she takes it and walks all over the house crying. She will stop and “bury” it in different places, under a blanket or behind things, then pull it right back out and continue the process again and again for a while before she finally settles down and begins chewing it. We were wondering what is going on in her head EMAILED ADVERTISEMENT that results in this behavior. -- Curious Doxie Mom ADVERTISING INSERTION ORDER Thomas MOM: Company DEAR DOXYHirchak Peg’s behavior has all the earmarks of FROM: Amy Crawford/Matt Chaney instinctive behaviors applied to a specific item (the chew treat). Dachshunds are notorious diggers --it’s part of what they were ��������������������������������������� originally bred for, as working dogs that would root out vermin like moles. So it’s not too surprising that she does this with her COMPANY: The World - ROP chew toys. The crying seems like a way of announcing ����������������� possession, like “hey, this is mine, I got it, check it out!” rather than distress. If the behavior happens only at treat time and doesn’t bother ���������������� you or harm the furniture, it’s up to you whether to let it continue. However, it sounds like Peg needs more stimulation ���������������������� in her life. NAME OF FILE: CassortWORLD4 Try playing games where you “bury” a toy (cover it with a �������������������� pillow, say) and have her find it. You can even go so far as to build��������������� where she can bury and dig up toys a sandbox out back during play times, under your supervision. Don’t let her dig in ������������������������������ other parts of the yard, though; if she starts that up, distract her and give her something else to do (like teaching basic obedience commands) or bring her back to the sandbox to dig.

Wood Chips as Mulch
Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor, UVM If you garden, you may often hear that arborist wood chips should not be used as mulch, which actually is not supported by studies. Wood chips are one of the best mulches for trees and shrubs, but may not be the best for annuals and vegetables, according to Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott from Washington State University. In a 1990 study comparing 15 different organic mulches, wood chips were one of the best for holding moisture, moderating soil temperatures, controlling weeds, and overall sustainability. Wood chips absorb more water than many other mulches, water which both cools the soil and is slowly released to plants. Economically, wood chips work too, as in most areas they can be obtained free from arborists or local recycle centers. Obtaining them from such local sources rather than in bags at chain stores, trucked in from distant locations, keeps the product out of landfills and supports less fuel wasted on trucking. They’re also economical in that being slow to break down, wood chips will last longer than most other choices, so don’t need replenishing as often. Dr. Chalker-Scott points out that since wood chips contain materials of various sizes—bark, wood, and leaves—they are more resistant to compaction than sawdust and bark. This diverse selection of materials also supports a diverse reduce weed seed germination. Fewer weeds means more nutrients available for your plants. Since this surface zone, lacking nutrients, is the area of the shallow roots of annuals and many vegetables, wood chips are not best to use for these. Nor would they be good on first year perennials, or those with shallow roots such as yarrow. If concerned about a lack of nitrogen, with shrubs and trees, use a nutrient-rich compost layer on the soil before applying wood chips. This “mulch sandwich” is similar to what one finds in a forest ecosystem, and is what the wood chips will form on their own over time. Some gardeners apply extra fertilizer to the soil surface, particularly nitrogen-rich ones, prior to applying wood chips. For organic nitrogen sources, you could use blood meal (12 percent nitrogen), fish meal (9 percent), cottonseed meal (6 percent) or soybean meal (also 6 percent) among others. A 5-3-4 analysis organic fertilizer supplies nitrogen as well other nutrients. Another major concern is whether wood chips will bring in diseases. If this is a worry, let them age for a year or two before applying. The downside to this is that some of the nutritional value will be lost. Studies have shown that wood chips don’t transmit disease organisms to roots of healthy trees. In healthy soils, there are more good fungal diseases that out-compete the bad ones on roots. In healthy plants, weak plant diseases can’t get established. These are often called “opportunistic” diseases, as they take advantage of opportunities for infection, such as wounding of bark and damaged roots. While the studies noted were done on roots, tree tops weren’t mentioned. Unfortunately, in my own experience, I unknowingly imported some leaf diseases (needlecast in particular) on bark spread under susceptible spruce species. Control required more spraying than was possible or desirable, so these trees are now mostly dead. Other species not susceptible to this disease are fine. So my lesson learned is not to use bark or other wood products like wood chips from unknown sources, which may have come from infected trees, around evergreens that may get leaf diseases. Yet, in other areas and similar to some growers I know, I’ve used wood chips on trees and shrubs with no effect on their growth. This mulch has not acidified soils, as is often claimed, nor has it increased pests such as carpenter ants, nor has it killed the plants through leaching harmful (“allelopathic”) chemicals. More on the use of wood chips, and other horticultural myths based on a review of scientific studies, can be found on Dr. Chalker-Scott’s website (www.informedgardener.com).

selection of soil microorganisms. These, in turn, are more resistant to environmental stresses and create a healthier plant environment. One of the main concerns, and reason often cited for not using wood chips, is that they will tie up nitrogen and cause plants to be hungry. When wood chips are used on trees and shrubs, many studies have shown just the opposite. While there is likely a shallow zone near the surface under a layer of wood chips in which nitrogen is often lacking (organisms use up nitrogen as they break down organic matter), the deeper roots of shrubs and trees should have sufficient nutrients in good soils. This shallow zone under wood chips, lacking in nitrogen, may help

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

February 15, 2012
Last Week’s Weather – One of driest February Weeks in years… A string of excellent Weather days occurred from the start of last week with predominance of sunshine and dry weather. Many days reached into the comfortable 30s and low 40s. The weekend saw much colder weather move in especially Sunday, but even this arctic air was very short lived lasting only into Monday morning before moderation in the air mass zoomed up once again. Ramifications of sugaring, and water resources abound as were not only very snow less, but also rather dry despite holding onto the snow in the mountains. Atop Mount Mansfield there was still a solid 46” as of Monday. Vermont Weather Stats last week ending Monday morning Feb 13th Highest temperature: 54 degrees at Waltham Monday afternoon the 6th Lowest temperature: minus 10 Island Pond Airport and Sutton Thursday the 9th Heaviest 24 hour precip: .10 Jeffersonville Base Lodge Smugglers Notch Monday the 13th Heaviest Snowfall: 1” Jay Peak, Jeffersonville and North Underhill Monday the 13th Most Snow Depth: 47” Mount Mansfield at the stake last Wednesday afternoon the 8th Global Weather Facts For Last Week Last week’s hottest temperature on planet earth was 113, Vradendal, South Africa. Last week’s coldest temperature: minus 57 at Russia’s Siberian community of Oimyakon. CO2 Readings – and RDS (Reality Detachment Syndrome) The global concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide continued to steadily climb during 2011, despite pledges by some countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Basically, it is still business as usual and accelerating. January 2012 Carbon Dioxide level (CO2) at 393.09 Compared to previous January 2011, it is up from 391.19.
That was a 1.90 increase in parts per million from the previous January. “Reality Detachment Syndrome” continues at an all time high, roughly 9 out of 10 across the U.S. and about 7 out of 10 for the rest of the world at large. RDS is a measurement of inaction of political leadership and cowardice. We’ll keep you posted right here on any changing trends. Negative Phase of the Arctic Oscillation hits Alaska and Europe, missing most North America… The last stages of a brutally cold period across Europe after
unusually warm first half of winter, Europe’s deep freeze with snowcovered landscape killed hundreds of people and left tens of thousands marooned. Temperatures plunged to almost minus 40 degrees in some countries, and officials warn of disastrous flooding once temperatures rise and the snow melts. Many of the worst-hit areas were in Eastern Europe and the Balkans, where blackouts and dwindling fuel supplies made it challenging to stay warm. Ice jams on rivers were posing a real danger that the waterways would overflow into cities, especially along the famed Danube. Authorities resorted to blasting the ice with explosives in an effort to avert such flooding. The Arctic blast even brought wintry conditions to North Africa, isolating mountain villages in Libya and Algeria and freezing temperatures well south into the Sudan. The polar vortex sufficiently weakened, then unloaded the most arctic of air across the continent from Europe to Asia and parts of the central north Pacific missing
most of North America. “Snowfall Deficit” - Winter of 2011-2012 By The Numbers… Newark, NJ, 79%, Albany NY. 75%, Boston, MA. 72%, Concord, NH. 69%, Hartford, CT. 69%, New York City, 69%, Worcester, MA. 60% Syracuse, NY. 58%, Burlington, VT. 50%, Bangor, ME. 49%, Binghamton, NY. 44%, Providence, RI. 44%, Portland ME. 38%. Caribou, ME. only 4% deficit. The entire Northeast and MidAtlantic region as a whole was running a “58% snowfall deficit” as compared to average. This is quite amazing!! Weather Trends Ahead… Above normal temperatures were likely as we see a west to southwesterly flow move in milder conditions once again. Weather Computer modeling was at odds blowing the doors off the temperature levels because there was inherit cool bias built in. the consequence is that temperature forecasts were being adjusted to reflect the very mild conditions. Not much precipitation was
expected over the course of the next couple of days, but by Thursday night jet stream energy was spinning up a storm system that may leave it’s mark with snow possibly rain. The dividing line separating out precip types from rain and some glazing with very slippery travel to wet snow and very slippery travel was likely to be near the Barre-Montpelier area but possibly further to the north. Thus watch travel for Thursday Night into Friday. Nothing exceptional was currently indicated for Presidents Day Weekend unfortunately but we are way more than overdue!
Snow Water Equivalent snap shot shows the amount of snow and ICE water within the snowpack across northern central Vermont to the Canadian Border. Lighter purple areas show better than 4 inches of stored water. This is a far cry from what we saw this time last year and on average was about the least amount of snow water we have seen in many many years. Note in the Champlain Valley where snow cover was limited to under inch in most cases, shows up as light blue. Also across portions of the Connecticut river valley.
