Give the Gift of Shopping Local

by Katie Moritz

Shopping local is not exactly an unfamiliar

approach to the holidays. Over the

past several years, it has become a

movement in itself, especially in Vermont,

where many consumers intentionally choose

to support small businesses.

But why?

One reason is that shopping local keeps

money in the community. Mary Jane Magnan

from Richard J Wobby Jewelers explains that

it “puts dollars back into the community. It’s

community supporting community.”

And she’s right.

According to an Indie Impact Study by

Civic Economics, which detailed the impact

of Andersonville, Chicago’s independent

business community, “independents bring

substantial benefits to their local economies

when compared to their chain competitors.

While chain stores and restaurants extract

locally generated revenues from the community

with each nightly bank transaction, independents

are creating a virtuous cycle of local

spending.”

For example, the study shows that the

retailers that participated in the survey return

a total of nearly 46.9% of revenue to the local

economy, and restaurants return a total of

72.7%. The national chains? They recirculated

an average of 13.6% of all revenue. Chain

restaurants recirculate an average of 30.4%.

The study, which can be found at civiceconomics.com,

also states: “The extra dollars in

the local economy produce more jobs for

residents, extra tax revenues for local governments,

more investment in commercial and

residential districts, and enhanced support for

local nonprofits.”

In a report titled “Why Buy Local? An

Assessment of the Economic Advantages of

Shopping at Locally Owned Businesses” by

Michigan State University Center for

Community and Economic Development,

author Nandi Robinson argues that there is

also an environmental impact.

“Locally sourced materials and products

produce less waste by eliminating unnecessary

transportation and delivery, therefore

reducing the amount of packaging being

used.”

Plus, on top of that, local businesses are

more engaged in taking care of their communities

through charitable donations.

Nelson’s Ace Hardware is a great example

of this. Manager, Annette Boisvert, explains

that they, along with many local businesses,

give back to the community on a weekly

basis. Her face lights up as she explains: “if

you support your local business, they support

you back. They help your kids, your grand

kids, your elders.”

She says that the community comes in

three to five times a week asking for donations.

They may be for basketball uniforms,

to help someone who has fallen on hard

times, or for local churches.

A figure in the report “Why Buy Local?”

shows that for $1,000,000 done in sales, one

local business contributed $4,000, whereas a

large box store contributed $1,000. In fact,

that survey reported that all the local businesses

surveyed totaled $24,000 in cash donations

and that 91% of local business owners

contributed donations to their community.

Mary Jane Magnan, from Wobbly Jewelers,

explains that shopping local “goes beyond

money. People buy from you because they

support your job, your work. And you’ll see it

come back. You get what you give.”

And although how and where you spend

your money can have a real effect on your

community, it also benefits you. For example,

you get better service not only tailored to

your needs, but tailored to your personality.

This kind of hands-on experience is what

makes shopping fun.

Magnan explains that “when you shop

local, you get to know your customer. When

they come in, you have ideas and recommendations

that fit that individual customer.”

Plus, Wobbly’s is there after the holiday season

to make sure their customers are satisfied.

For example, if you bought a ring there and it

doesn’t fit right, they will re-size for free.

Nelson’s Ace Hardware can also give recommendations

and even special order for

customers. If you need a particular part, and

they don’t’ have it, they will work to get it in for

you.

Nelson’s also offers a wide array of knowledge.

They have two fellows in hardware who

have about 50 years of experience between

them and another fellow that’s been with

them for close to 25 years who fixes things.

Therefore, they can repair mixers, toasters,

and other small appliances.

As shoppers purchase gifts for loved ones

and friends this holiday season, it is important

to remember that where and how one spends

their money can also be a gift in itself.

First Annual Holiday Market

and Weihnachtsmarkt in Cabot

Big things are happening in Cabot, VT, this holiday season.

On December 16, Cabot will experience its first ever Holiday

Market and Weihnachtsmarkt. The event is hosted by The Den

at Harry’s Hardware, and is a collaborated event with the Cabot

Community Association (CCA) and other local businesses in

the historic village. Inspired by Weihnachtsmarkts held throughout

Germany and much of Europe during Advent, the Village of

Cabot will come alive with festive decorations and holiday

cheer. Its street market, held in the heart of the village between

Harry’s Hardware and Cabot Village store, will have vendors

that provide comforting food, drink, and seasonal items. The

Den will serve Vermont Craft Beers and Hard Cider on tap,

local Vermont and other great wines, and its own recipe for

traditional glühwein (mulled wine) to keep you warm from the

inside out. For the youngsters, they will offer other libations.

Across the street, CCA will be hosting a Holiday Artisan

Store where you can buy handcrafted gifts, arts, and specialty

crafts and antiques highlighting Cabot made products to help

promote Cabot’s businesses.

Holiday Market vendors will include Bar Hill and Caledonia

Spirits, which will be serving Hot Totties; Sandy Pond

Massage; Yoga and Pottery; Talbert Maple Syrup; Vermont

Peanut Brittle, and many other amazing artists and specialty

foods.

Perhaps the best part of the event will be the live music. The

day will kick off with a performance at the Willey building

from Cabot School’s amazing local jazz band, The Limes! Then

there will be performances by Paul Miller & Doug Perkins,

Kick ‘Em Jenny & Friends, Stovepipe Mountain, and Jaime

and The Red Axe, and all take place inside the warmth of The

Den.

The CCA Artisan Store will be open from 9am to 8pm, and

the Holiday Market and Weihnachtsmarkt will begin at 2pm,

with music starting around 3pm. Come dressed warm for a festive

day to get you into the holiday spirit. Buy last-minute

Christmas gifts for friends and loved ones and enjoy live music,

food, and great drinks while you shop. Celebrate the holidays

this season in Cabot with The Den and some other amazing

businesses.

Although there was no advertising and only

a sandwich board put outside, the combined

total cash receipts brought in over two days

was $440.00. The plan going forward is to

have this store open on the weekends through

the end of the year. However it needs donations

of merchandise to sell to keep up a good

inventory. If you have salable items, which

you no longer need, please consider donating

to this project. There are some wonderful gifts

there which are perfect for Christmas and

New Years, so come check this out on Saturday

10-5 or Sunday 10-4. The location is in the

middle of Sidewalk Village at 136 N. Main

Street.

Spaulding High School Sophomores, Jada

MacDonald and Madison Henderson, work with

Barre City Department of Public Works Streets

Foreman, Jim Brown, to install one of the ten

“Sidewalk Buttlers” going up in the city of Barre.

These cigarette butt dispensers will help solve the

butt litter problem in the downtown area and provide

a place to extinguish cigarettes before entering

the smoke free parks, playgrounds, and

events. Jada and Madison are part of the OVX and

SADD groups at Spaulding. Our Voices Xposed

(OVX) is a youth-led group focusing on exposing

the truth about tobacco such as the harmful flavors,

marketing tactics targeting kids, and the

impact of secondhand smoke. Students Against

Destructive Decisions (SADD) envisions a world

in which young people make positive decisions

that advance their health and safety. Students collaborated

with Central VT New Directions Coalition

to survey Barre residents and businesses about

smoking in downtown Barre.

Lost Nation Theater Presents It’s A Wonderful

Life – A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry

“One man’s life touches

so many others” -

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.

See the small ensemble

create hundreds of characters,

and the sound of

everything from crickets to

cars, from door slams to

sirens in front of your very

eyes. It’s great for the

whole family.

You’ve got just 2 chances

to see this magical show

for the final time: 7pm,

Wednesday & Thursday December 6 & 7,

2017.

Jim Lowe, Times Argus theater critic in his

latest review raved: “Lost Nation Theater

reprised its radio-style version of ‘It’s a

Wonderful Life’ for the umpteenth time, but it

never seems to grow old. In fact, Thursday’s

performance seemed incredibly fresh. The

production was well cast and most entertaining.

The ensemble was tight-knit. It’s cornbut

delicious corn. Lost Nation’s ‘It’s a

Wonderful Life’ reminds us of how we want

our lives to be.”

A tradition for LNT and many community

members, Lost Nation Theater offers It’s a

Wonderful Life as one way of giving back to

the community: youth 11 & under are free per

accompanying paying adult, and tickets are

just $10 (in advance).

Most famous as Frank Capra’s 1946 film

starring Jimmy Stewart, It’s a Wonderful Life

is based on the short story “The Greatest

Gift,” written by Philip Van Doren Stern.

Stern was inspired by a dream to write the

story. Let it inspire you, too!

Lost Nation Theater presents its holiday

tradition — complete with live sound effects,

on-air signals, and applause signs — Wed and

Thu, Dec 6 and 7, at the period-perfect and

wheel-chair accessible Montpelier City Hall

Arts Center.

Now in its 10th year, the show has enjoyed

virtually the same cast each season. And after

all these years, this is the final time Lost

Nation Theater will be mounting this beautiful

show. The whole cast & crew is back for

this last go ‘round in 2017!

LNT’s founder Kim Allen Bent leads the

cast 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 is the man of many voices playing

Harry Jazzbo Heywood

tackling Clarence the

Angel, Uncle Billy, Harry

Bailey, and a dozen other

characters, while Maura

O’Brien is back as bombshell

Lana Sherwood playing

women, little kids, and

Old Man Collins, too. Kim

Ward returns to her role as

the stage manager and

over-worked sound effects

artist creating one-hundred

effects before your very

eyes – and ears!

LNT’s Producing

Artistic Director Kathleen

Keenan is again at the

helm, with lighting by

Thomas Gunn, costumes

by Cora Fauser and stage

management by Laura Gist. Making sure the

live audience hears it all - and giving it that

radio feel is mega-soundman Bennett Shapiro

of MadTech Sound.

Director Keenan says “It’s bittersweet to be

doing the show for the final time, because we

all love it so, love doing it together, and the

message. But 10 years is a long time, and it’s

time to find our next tradition – fitting with

our ages! And you know that all of us will be

pulling out all the stops to make it extra special.

So make sure you see it!”

Set in the fictional town of Bedford Falls

shortly after World War II, Wonderful Life

features unlikely hero, George Bailey – a man

whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve

brings him guardian angel Clarence Oddbody.

Uproarious one moment, deeply touching the

next, It’s A Wonderful Life is a perfect pickme

up; a reminder of what’s possible when

we work together and look out for one another.

Let the magic of a staged “radio show”

spark your imagination and rekindle your

faith in humanity. Tickets are available online

at lostnationtheater.org, by phone – call

802-229-0492, or in person at the Montpelier

City Clerks Office (on the first floor of City

Hall).

Our Gift to You! All tickets: just $10

Moving Light Dance Company Presents 11th

Annual Green Mountain Nutcracker

The Green Mountain Nutcracker,

Vermont’s only interpretation of the

classic holiday tale with a local

twist, returns to the Barre Opera

House for two shows, on Saturday,

December 16 at 7pm and Sunday,

December 17 at 2pm.

Now in its eleventh year, this

one-of-a-kind production features

an all-ages, 60-member cast of

professional company dancers and

local students, all-original choreography

by Christine Harris, Willow

Wonder, Avi Waring, Natalie

Wheeler and Vladimir Roje, set to

both Tchaikovsky’s familiar score

and original music by Vermont

musician, Colin McCaffrey, as well

as an array of locally made sets and

costumes.

Set in the 1970s in Vermont, this familiarmade-fantastical

rendition of the classic ballet

delights audiences with its many local references,

from the boisterous loggers to the

Maple Sugar Fairy.

The Green Mountain Nutcracker really is

a celebration of what it is to be living in

Vermont — the snow, the leaves, the community,

the culture, the stacking wood,” said codirector,

Avi Waring. “It’s an exalting of those

qualities. Vermonters are hardworking people;

dancers are hardworking people, and there’s

joy in hard work. I think you feel that in our

‘Nutcracker.’”

The Story

On Christmas night, a young girl is transported

into a world of magic and imagination

when the gift of a wooden nutcracker doll,

from the magician Drosselmeier, comes to

life. After a joyful holiday party, the nutcracker

prince escorts Marie through snowy

Vermont forests and into his kingdom, the

Land of the Sweets. The Maple Sugar Fairy

welcomes the pair and conducts a large cast of

colorful characters who celebrate with delightful

dances: loggers, shepherd and sheep, winter

birds, the north wind and leaves, Arabian

coffee, and more audience favorites.

The School & Company

Moving Light Dance was founded by

Christine Harris in 2000. One ballet class of

ten students held at the Plainfield Town Hall

quickly grew into a popular school and company,

now located in Montpelier, drawing

hundreds of students and dancers from central

Vermont and beyond.

The company presents two staged professional

productions each year with casts ranging

in age from four into the fifties. Many of

the students from the school, which includes

classes in ballet, modern and contemporary

dance, grow up performing in these productions.

The unique opportunity for children to

perform and collaborate with adults in community

productions, versus simply learning

technique and showcasing skills at recitals, is

reflective of the school’s philosophy (and the

character of Vermont) of inclusion, hard

work, and collaboration. The school and company

is regionally known for its signature mix

of innovative choreography and genres, creative

interpretations of classic tales and ballets,

and all-ages and -abilities casting.

“I started this school not knowing where

this would take me, much less take so many

others,” said Harris. “It’s truly a homegrown

effort and has organically evolved into a fullscale

school and professional company, with

many dancers and attendees returning year

after year. It’s been a joy to watch these children

growing up in dance and to be a part of

such a rich cultural experience.”

Join friends and family and create your own

annual tradition at one of Vermont’s most cherished

holiday events. Two performances only:

Saturday, December 16 at 7pm; and Sunday,

December 17 at 2pm. Tickets: $25/$15 or

$28/$18 at the door. To order tickets, visit barreoperahouse.org

Vermont Tech Achieves 98% Placement Rate

Vermont Tech is proud to announce that the

graduating class of 2017 achieved a 98%

placement rate, meaning they are either

employed or continuing their education after

completing their certificate or degree. A

remarkable statistic for the 2017 class is that

99% of employed graduates are working in

their field of study.

Vermont Tech’s yearly placement rate is

calculated by a six-month Outcome Survey

conducted by the Director of Career

Development, Karry Booska. Booska said,

“This data confirms that Vermont Tech’s programs,

and graduates, are in high demand.”

Of the 565 graduates, 474 responded for an

impressive 84% response rate. At the time of

the survey, there were 271 graduates

Lucas Herring for Barre City Mayor

Lucas Herring is pleased to announce his

candidacy for Mayor of the City of Barre.

Herring has been a member of the Barre City

Council for over 6 years, serving on several

committees and as a liaison to many boards

within the community.

Born and raised in Vermont, Herring

received his master’s degree in Business

Administration from Champlain College in

2008 and has worked for the State of Vermont

for 17 years. He is currently an Information

Technology Director for the Agency of Digital

Services in Waterbury, Vermont. Herring

served on Barre School Boards for 7 years

and has dedicated his time to the Barre

Partnership and Vermont Granite Museum as

a Board Member and volunteer. Herring is

still involved with the Sons of the American

Legion serving as Adjutant at both the state

and local level and the Corrections Technology

Association.

employed, 193 continuing their education,

and 9 unemployed.

Vermont Tech’s President, Patricia Moulton

remarked that “We are very pleased with

these stellar outcomes. Vermont Tech has a

history of growing successful students into

hard-working graduates who enter the workforce

with the critical thinking and practical

skills needed to succeed in their fields. To the

graduates of the class of 2017: I am very

proud of you and I know you will continue to

change the world.”

Over the last four years, Vermont Tech has

an average placement rate of over 97%. The

class of 2014 saw 98%, in 2015 it was 94%

and the class of 2016 had a 100% placement

rate.

When Lucas was first elected to the

Council, the Main Street project was already

underway. Since then, he has been a part of

the revitalization that has seen development

at the Blanchard Block, creation of City

Place, and implementation of the Gunner’s

Brook Flood Mitigation Initiative. When

asked why he seeks election, Herring responded,

“It’s really what’s best for Barre. Barre is

on the right track and I want to make sure that

we continue to move forward. I’ve been a

public servant for the residents of Barre for

many years and will use that experience as

Mayor. Barre has a strong sense of community

and I am excited for the opportunity to be

able to bring my ideas and experience to benefit

of our City in this important role.”

Herring is currently serving in his fourth

term as a City Councilor in Ward 3.

Hamilton: The Man and the Musical

At the Unitarian Church – 130 Main Street, Montpelier, VT.

Presidential biographer Willard Sterne Randall will discuss

Alexander Hamilton’s life was part romance, part tragedy—

and the inspiration for the blockbuster Broadway musical.

Randall will discuss the man and the musical, with excerpts

from its score. This program is part of the Vermont Humanities

Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series, hosted by the

Kellogg-Hubbard Library and is free and open to the public.

Northfield Community Development Network Receives

Grant from Cooperative Community Fund to Support

The Night on The Common

Northfield Community

Development Network (NCDN)

is pleased to announce it has

received a $250 grant from the

Cooperative Community Fund

of the Hunger Mountain Co-op.

These funds will support the

third annual Northfield Night

on the Common in summer

2018.

Begun in 2016, the Northfield

Night on the Common is an

annual summer event that seeks

to bring the community together

while showcasing different

aspects of Northfield to resident

and visitors. The third annual

Night on the Common intends to showcase

the food and beverage producers that make

our community unique. Known nationally for

its craft food and drinks, Vermont is a destination

for agri-tourism and foodies. Northfield

aims to celebrate its piece of the local food

industry.

(L-R) Kaitlyn Keating, NCDN,

and Kari Bradley, General

Manager, Hunger Mountain

Co-op. Photo credit Curtis

B. Johnson.

“I’m excited about showing

off our local food producers,

who are crucial in growing

Northfield,” says Carolyn

Stevens, NCDN Treasurer,

who saw the grant application

while shopping at the Co-op.

Growing Northfield’s reputation

as a place to visit, to live,

and to do business is a key to

NCDN’s mission of community

and economic development.

Previous Northfield

Night on the Common events

have showcased the Area Wide

Plan and non-profits and community

groups.

The Community Foundation awards annual

grants through a competitive application

and review process. NCDN received the

grant at the Hunger Mountain Co-op annual

meeting on November 2. Information about

the third annual Night on the Common will

weather damage like hail, you hit a deer,

your car is stolen, vandalism, fire, glass

This coverage pays for damage to your

car resulting from a collision with another

car, object, or as a result of flipping over.

Sherrie Lyn (Bessette) Brewster

Sherrie Lyn (Bessette) Brewster,

65, formerly of East Montpelier

died on November 23, 2017.

Sherrie was born March 15, 1952

in Montpelier, Vermont to Edward

and Evelyn (Eastman) Bessette.

She grew up in Montpelier and

graduated from Montpelier High

School in 1970. She married David

Brewster of Barre and they built a house in East Montpelier,

had three children and later divorced. Sherrie was a resident

of East Montpelier for over thirty years. Sherrie was a

retiree from the state of Vermont, where she worked for the

Department of Labor’s apprenticeship program. Sherrie had

also worked as a court recorder at Washington Family Court

in Barre, a 911 dispatcher for the Montpelier police department

and a deputy game warden in Central Vermont. She

was also an active member of the VT State Employees’

Association. Sherrie loved being outdoors and spent her free

time kayaking, fishing, downhill skiing, cross country skiing,

snowshoeing and working in her exquisite flower gardens.

She was passionate about rabbit hunting with her

beagles and deer hunting. She coordinated her Montpelier

High School class reunions and enjoyed traveling with family

and friends to Maine, Florida, Costa Rica, New Mexico

and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Sherrie cherished the holidays

and was an amazing baker. Surviving family includes: three

children (Brian Brewster of Lyndonville, Stephanie Fleury

and her husband Scott of Barre Town and Lauri Brewster

and her husband Manrique Logan of Portland, Oregon); four

grandchildren (Riley, Nicholas, Alyssa and Oliver); four

siblings (Terry Bessette and his wife Jean of Albuquerque,

New Mexico, Sandy Farnham and her husband Allan of

Plainfield, Bonnie Burkholder and her husband Steve who

recently returned to Vermont from St. John, VI and Penny

Hannigan and her husband Francis of Montpelier; a sister-inlaw,

Terry Bessette; twelve nieces and nephews. Sherrie was

predeceased by her parents, her brother Doug Bessette,

nephew Michael Bessette and ex-husband David Brewster.

Family would like to thank staff at The Metivier Care Home

daughter, Kimberly, later settling in Northborough,

Massachusetts. It was there that she earned her degree in

Cosmetology and began a lifetime career of making people

look good and feel better with her talent and compassion.

in Waterbury and then Montpelier, as well as Westview

Meadows in Montpelier, until her retirement, after which she

moved to Margate, Florida to be close to her sister, Linda.

For Ruth, family and friends came first throughout her lifetime.

She maintained a close connection to her sisters and

brothers, as well as with friends she met at different points

in her life. Family gatherings were some of her favorite

times, when everyone would come together to celebrate…

and there was always a reason to celebrate in her family.

Those who weren’t part of the family were quickly made to

feel welcome by Ruth and her generous nature. She was the

first to call or send a card when someone was in need, never

forgot a birthday or celebration, and made sure those close

to her felt loved and cared for. Her grandchildren stole her

heart when they were born and were fortunate to be loved by

her for many years. Ruth enjoyed beautiful things, especially

dolls, and collected them throughout the years. Her

creativity came out each year at Halloween where she would

construct fabulous costumes for her daughter and herself.

She dabbled in ceramics and left a legacy of beautiful

Christmas houses that her family looks forward to setting up

each year. Most importantly, Ruth made every occasion one

to be remembered and cherished. Her very spirit made

everyone around her feel important and cared for. It is her

kindness and generosity of spirit that she will most be

remembered for. Ruth is survived by her daughter, Kimberly

(Todd), and grandchildren Colin (14) and Megan (12), her

brother, Paul (Joyce) Garcia; sisters Linda Porter, Rita

Bassett (Jean-Marc Cote), and Janice (David) Lambert,

along with many special nieces and nephews, great nieces

and nephews and cousins, as well as Donald Comeau (former

spouse). Her parents, brothers James and Michael and

sister, Lucille, are predeceased. Services and a celebration of

life will be planned in Vermont this coming summer. In lieu

of flowers, the family asks donations be made to CurePSP

(www.psp.org/donateor CurePSP, 30 E. Padonia Road, Suite

201, Timonium, MD 21093) or the Brain Support Network

(www.brainsupportnetwork.org/donate or Brain Support

Netowrk, P.O. Box 7264, Menlo Park, CA 94026). The

family also asks that you give loved ones an extra hug this

holiday season and spend a little more time with family and

friends. It is a fitting tribute to Ruth’s life and legacy.

RONALD MANSFIELD FERRY

JR. died on Nov. 11, 2017. Born on

April 26, 1921, to Ronald and Virginia Townsend

Ferry, Ron grew up in Concord, MA. Ron

graduated from The Fenn School, ‘34, The

Phillips Exeter Academy, ‘39, Harvard College,

‘43 and Harvard Medical School, ‘48. Ron’s life

changed forever on Dec. 22, 1944, when he married Sylvia

Thayer at her family church, The First Church of Christ,

Unitarian, Lancaster, MA. After graduation from medical

school, Ron and Sylvia moved to Minneapolis where Ron

taught anatomy at Northwestern Medical School. Ron enlisted

in the U.S. Army and served as a medical doctor on the

Korean Peninsula. After his honorable discharge, Ron and his

family moved to Hanover, NH, where they welcomed the

birth of their daughter, Elizabeth. Ron completed his surgical

training at the Veterans Hospital in White River Junction, and

Mary Hitchcock Hospital in Hanover. Ron and Sylvia chose

Montpelier, VT, as their new home. Ron became Montpelier’s

first board-certified general surgeon. He made house calls,

often accompanied by his children. He was paid by insurance

checks, fresh lake trout, venison, moose hides and heavy,

coin-filled Mason jars. Ron also wrote and illustrated poetry

and short stories. He carved wood figures of his favorite characters.

Life took an unhappy turn when Sylvia died suddenly

on March 9, 2009, at the age of 89. Despite the unflagging

best efforts of his family, friends, colleagues and Cap, the

Border Collie, Ron was haunted by Sylvia’s absence. In 2017,

Ron moved from his beloved hillside farm to The Gary

Residence in Montpelier. The kind and compassionate staff,

residents, therapy dogs and Central Vermont Home Health

and Hospice nurses brought moments of joy and peace to

Ron’s last months. Ron is survived by his three children:

Charles M. Ferry, of Montpelier, Sylvia (and Edward) F.

Smith, of Cabot, and Elizabeth W. Ferry, of South Royalton;

and grandchildren Katherine Lindsey Swope (and John), of

Powell, Wyoming, and Nathaniel (and Elizabeth Bean) Smith,

of Cabot, Vermont.

leaves behind his loving wife, Jan, parents Fred and Marilyn,

sister Diane, brothers Thom and Chris, aunts, uncles, cousins,

a nephew, nieces, a large extended family, co-workers and so

many friends, near and far. Thanks to all the medical staff,

he was one in infinity, and he will be unbelievably

missed. Please respect the privacy of the family at this difficult

time.

60th Anniversary of the Disappearance of Orville Gibson

By Steve Martin

The author of “Orville’s Revenge, the Anatomy of a

Suicide,” is at it again. I am still trying to convince you that

on December 30, 1957, Gibson committed suicide by tying

himself up on the Newbury-Haverhill Bridge and rolling into

the Connecticut River. My first attempt was long, convoluted,

and full of legalese. Most who attempted to read my book

didn’t get past Chapter XIV. But this time, my anniversary

synopsis is quick and to the point. I has connected all the

dots.

I maintains that Freeman Placey, the main culprit advocating

the vigilante theory, had reason to do so, if for no better

reason than to protect his high school sweetheart from the

stigma that often attaches to suicide. He certainly convinced

the Town of Newbury. According to a recent poll taken in the

Town, the vote was 71 to 3 for a vigilante killing.

The fly in the ointment was the mysterious appearance of

the southern racist, William Bradford Huie. Shortly after

Carmi in Franklin. Lois married Robert Norman Webster, of

Montpelier, on Aug. 6, 1949. While raising five children, she

was active in numerous school, church and community organizations,

including the Montpelier Mothers Club and the East

Montpelier PTA. She was active in the revitalization of the Old

Meeting House in East Montpelier Center, and later collaborated

with Ellen Hill in researching and publishing “Cemeteries

of East Montpelier.” She was an avid reader, knitter, perennial

gardener and genealogist, but was most affectionately known

for her cheerful sense of humor, love of toys, exceptional organizational

skills and creative culinary genius. She is survived by

her five children, Cameron Webster and Janice Gohm Webster,

of Venice, FL, Lee Webster and William R. Crangle, of

Plymouth, NH, Kathleen Webster and Serdar Basegmez, of

Alexandria, VA, Douglas Webster and Heather Morris, of

Charlotte, VT, and Lynn Webster, of El Cerrito, CA; 10 grandchildren

and seven great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law,

Charlene Gauthier Allard, of North Montpelier; and three

siblings, Sherry Pinard, of Littleton, NH, Gayle Currier, of

Media, PA, and Brian King, of Barton, VT.

CLARA ELIZABETH (WHITE) WELLS

died at her home, right where she wanted to be,

and where she and her husband of 69 years,

Mervin Ralph (1921-2014), had lived for 45

years on Nov. 27, 2017. Clara, the daughter of

Alton and Bertha (Young) White, was born in

Greensboro on April 4, 1923. She grew up on

the Rocking Rock Farm, with her siblings

Dorothy, Irwin, Josephine and Lawrence. After graduating

from Greensboro High School, she went to UVM, graduating

with a degree as a dietitian. She met Mervin when he played

for a dance. They married Sept. 2, 1945, and lived in

Marshfield their entire lives. Clara worked as a dietitian at

Dartmouth Hospital and Goddard College. Later, she worked

at the Marshfield phone company (she knew everyone’s number!)

and also Goddard College in the accounting office, retiring

in the mid-’80s. Clara & Mervin enjoyed their Artic Cat

snow machines, old car gatherings, Marshfield United Church

activities and especially, their large family. Clara is the

mother of eight children and their spouses Elizabeth and

William Larsen, Richard and Darla Wells, Ronald and

MaryLou Wells, Russell and Linda Wells, Raegan Wells,

Elaine and Dennis Clisham, Randall and Stacy Wells, Rodney

Wells; 19 grandchildren, and her brother, Lawrence White,

and sister-in-law Eleanor Orr.

Judge Natt Divoll threw out the first degree murder charge

against Ozzie Welch (October 15, 1959), Huie arrived on the

scene to obtain a confession from Ozzie. The murder trial

against Frank Carpenter was set to begin on April 18, 1960,

and the prosecutors were frantic for a break in the case. On

December 4, 1959, Huie wrote a letter to Walter Renfrew,

(who had become famous with his widely reported remark

that Gibson should be “tarred and feathered,”) in which he

agreed to pay Ozzie $5,000 if Renfrew could obtain a confession

from him. Both the Attorney General and the State’s

Attorney were in on the plan! Nothing came of this because

Ozzie was not about to admit to a crime that was not committed!

One of the mysteries in this case is who called Huie to

come to Vermont to expose northern hypocrisy. Perhaps a few

folks in Newbury know and will tell us. Many years ago, the

State of Vermont, and the Burlington Free Press offered

rewards leading to the solution of the Gibson case. Perhaps

now they will pay.

Guest Opinion:

“What I learned in High School… Last Week”

By Senator Bernie Sanders

Last year, more than 60,000 people died from opioid overdoses

in the United States. That’s more Americans dying in

one year than during the entire 19 years of the Vietnam War.

In our small state, 112 Vermonters died from a drug overdose,

which is three times as many as died in 2010. And what’s

even more shocking than the sheer numbers of people dying

is how hard this epidemic is hitting younger people. Drug

overdose is now the leading cause of death for people younger

than 50. In Vermont, the average age of death from overdose

is just 40 years old. And in 2016, nearly 20 percent of

the drug overdose deaths were in people under age 30.

Solving the opioid epidemic will not be easy. We’re going

to have to challenge the pharmaceutical industry, which made

huge profits by putting drugs on the market that were far more

addictive than they admitted. We’re going to have to deal with

drug wholesalers, who are selling far more pills than anyone

thinks is necessary for medical reasons. We’re going to have

to make sure doctors and dentists – as Vermont providers have

begun doing – take up safe prescribing practices so excess

painkillers aren’t abused or misused and that states use tools

to curb so-called “doctor shopping” and “pill-mills.”

But, at the end of the day, if we’re going to solve this terrible

crisis, we’re going to have to do a lot better job at prevention

– keeping people from turning to drugs in the first

place. And to do that, we must look to our young people. For

that reason, on the Friday before the Thanksgiving break, I

went to Burlington High School to talk to the entire student

body. I was joined by T.J. Donovan, Vermont’s Attorney

General; Dr. Heather Stein, an expert on opioid addiction; and

Kelly Breeyear, a courageous woman who is living in recovery

from addiction. I wanted to discuss the dangers of taking

opioids with the students, but I also wanted to hear from them.

I wanted and needed their help.

In Washington, I sit on the Senate’s Health, Education,

Labor and Pension Committee, which hears from some of the

most knowledgeable people in this country on all kinds of

matters relating to health care and education. But on this issue

of opioid and heroin addiction, and on the question of why so

many young people are turning to drugs and how we can

prevent that, I believe our nation’s young people might know

Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States, Vol IX:

Bush and Clinton: A New World Order

Max’s View ★★★★

One of the lessons from the novel “1984” is that an

oppressive government needs to have an enemy.

In the beginning of “1984,” Big Brother is at war

with Eurasia. Suddenly, halfway through the book, the country

is at war with Eastasia.

It doesn’t especially matter whether the threat is real. The

point of having an enemy isn’t just perpetual warfare; it is

total control over the minds of your own people.

Only in this context is it possible to understand American

foreign policy from 1989 to 2001. On paper, the US acted

with foolishness and needless bellicosity. When compared to

the government in “1984,” it was a splendid success.

more than the experts.

These young people know first-hand what it’s like to live in

a family where a parent struggles with addiction. They know

from personal experience what kind of pressure exists when

your best friends are experimenting with pills and ask you to

join in. They might also know, if they injured themselves or

had their wisdom teeth removed, how tempting it could be to

keep taking painkillers prescribed by a doctor, even when the

physical pain subsides. They certainly know better than older

generations what it’s like to be growing up in today’s crazy

and rapidly changing world. And, perhaps most tragically,

they know how common it can be to struggle with anxiety or

even depression – a growing problem for young people.

In their questions and comments, what I heard from these

high school students was truly insightful. Many of them

talked about looking for ways to fight stigma, to make it clear

that it is okay to confide in each other about personal and family

problems and that one not need to be embarrassed to ask

for professional help. They talked about how important it is

for people struggling with addiction to not only have access

to treatment, but have their recovery supported when they

came back home. They wanted to understand why health

insurance companies are willing to pay for expensive prescription

opioids, but refuse to cover other options like acupuncture

and yoga, or mental health care.

If I learned one thing from talking with and listening to

these students, it’s that they do know the dangers of heroin

and other opioids. They know that these drugs can destroy

their lives, and the lives of the people they love. But I also

learned that they want and need constructive alternatives.

And that, as adults, is our job.

We must create schools that challenge them intellectually

and support them emotionally, and make sure that none of

them “fall through the cracks.” We must help make sure they

have a safe place to live and an opportunity for higher education

or a job that gives them purpose. We must appreciate their

ideas and make them a part of the solution. Every single one

of our young people deserves a chance at a bright future. And

when we accomplish that, I have little doubt that we will have

gone a long way toward ending the opioid crisis.

The story begins with the fall of Communism and the election

of George H. W. Bush.

With visionary leader Mikhail Gorbachev, Oliver Stone

asserts, we had a golden opportunity to change history and

make Russia our lasting ally. Our leaders didn’t want that at

all, though.

To make sure we stayed arch-enemies with the Russians,

we shamelessly betrayed them. In 1990, the Kremlin agreed

to let East Germany reunite with NATO country West

Germany. In exchange, Washington agreed to halt the expansion

of NATO into Eastern Europe.

We what we should have done was disband NATO entirely.

Its stated purpose was to guard Western Europe against the

Stringing Popcorn

By G. E. Shuman

When I was a child, a long time

ago in a galaxy far away, many

things were different than they

are today. That statement seems to go

without saying. The world has changed so

much since then. Traditions, celebrations,

and even seasonal decorations are not what

they once were. I’m not sure if such

changes are good, or bad (I will tell you

that I was not impressed with the first ‘predecorated’

Christmas tree I saw in a

store).

One thing that my family used to do

when I was a child, at this time of the year,

was to string popcorn to use as a garland

on our Christmas tree. I’m not certain if we

did this every year, but I do remember the

ritual taking place many times in the eighteen

Decembers of my youth. What would

happen is that my mom would pop a big

batch of popcorn on the stove, provide us

children with a needle and a lot of thread,

and we would proceed to spend that evening

watching whatever Christmas special

was on TV that night while assembling the

corn into long strands, to be placed on the tree as soon as we

were done. The challenge, at least for us younger children,

was to string at least a bit more popcorn than we ate, as we

watched Rudolph, Frosty, or Charlie Brown make their oncea-year

Christmas appearance on the big, old, wooden-boxed

television in our living room.

Yes, it would be an extreme understatement to say that

things have changed in our world, since that long-ago time.

This year, if you were to describe my Christmastime, you

would have to move not only past that child of the sixties but

to one whose Christmases now number in the sixties. You

would need to talk about the fact that not only have I grown

older, but that my children have also, and that my grandchildren

are in the process of doing so, too. The TVs that

Rudolph and Frosty still appear on have gone from being

clunky, blurry, heavy things which took up a good amount of

space in our living rooms, to inch-thick, huge and brilliant

devices we take for granted as they hang on our walls.

There is no longer anyone in our home who believes in

Santa, or who is interested in many of the traditions of that

jolly old elf, or of our family. This year, Lorna and I decided

The Importance of Young People Making Wise Choices

and The Dangers of Substance Abuse

Pat McDonald and Ben Kinsley

are co-hosts of the show,

“Vote for Vermont.” Joining

them on a recent show was Darryl

Rodgers, a teen motivational speaker

and author. Darryl became a

motivational speaker when his son

Chase Rodgers, died when his car,

driven by a girl who was unlicensed

and had used marijuana left the highway and hit a tree at 60

mph. The young lady did not die in the accident but survived

to subsequently commit suicide.

Darryl talked about his background which included being a

corporate pilot, serving as a medic in the Army National

Guard and being a co-pilot gunner on an Apache helicopter.

He is a successful businessman, has run an outdoor summer

camp for boys and worked with ‘at-risk’ boys through a nonprofit

program he started and is an avid hunter. Darryl said

he was caught off guard by his son’s drug abuse. No one in

his family had substance issues and he had never encountered

it before.

When asked about his son, Darryl said he was generous and

had a great sense of humor and was very popular among his

peers. He was competitive and agile and a force to be reckoned

with on the football field. His number was 34 and his

nickname was ‘speedy’. After his death, Darryl created a

website in honor of Chase. It’s called Speedy34.com.

Chase’s story is not unique. Darryl talks about peer pressure

as the change agent in Chase’s life. Chase went to college

and became involved with drugs and alcohol, with marijuana

being his drug of choice. Darryl and his wife began noticing

a personality change. Chase’s grades fell and eventually he

was kicked out of college. Through an intervention with his

family, Chase attended rehab and then a half-way house. He

got a job and was doing better but then subtle changes started

to happen. Chase came to Darryl and admitted that he was

hanging out with the wrong group again and wanted to move

back to Florida where he went to rehab. The day he was supposed

to say good-by to his Mom and Dad is the day they got

aggressive onslaught of Stalinist Communism. What the US

did, however, was actively betray Moscow’s trust during its

hour of weakness.

During the 90s, NATO began a belligerent advance right up

to Russia’s doorstep. Today, the US is officially obligated to

come to the defense of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania if

Russia attacks them. Do our leaders genuinely care about the

Estonians? Nah, they just want to antagonize Moscow.

Our leaders successfully ensured that the Russians continue

to fear and hate us. Bravo. For their next trick, they found a

way to have endless war in the Middle East.

In 1990, a US envoy told our old friend Saddam Hussein

that he could take over Kuwait without inference. When Iraq

invaded its neighbor, however, the Bush Administration

changed its mind.

Operation Desert Storm was a splendid military success.

But it had severe long-term consequences.

to embrace that fact, as fighting it would be stupid and futile.

We still went out and bought a tree, but a much smaller one

than at any Christmas past, in an effort to simplify things, this

year. We, without the fanfare now relegated to seasonal

memories, set up the smaller tree in that familiar corner of the

living room.

My wife, the wise one in the family, suggested

that we use some of our older ornaments,

sort of making this tree a symbol of

memories. She then went to the attic and

located those things, and also the angel treetop

that her family had used on their trees

when she was growing up; indeed since she

was an infant. She brought that aging angel to

me, and I tried plugging it into an outlet. To

her and my astonishment, the 1950s era bulb

within it glowed as if it were brand new. We

immediately put that beautiful angel on the

tree.

After that, Lorna seemed to be fretting a bit

over what would be the perfect garland on

our new, ‘old fashioned’ Christmas tree. It

had to be ‘just right’. I didn’t know what she

wanted to do, and we actually went to several

stores, trying to find a beaded type of garland

she had remembered from the past, but we never located it.

We then checked the totes of ‘Christmas past’ in the attic, and

found nothing suitable there, either. Then, in probably the

only good Christmas idea I have ever had, I asked Lorna if she

had ever strung popcorn as a child, to put on a Christmas tree.

To my amazement, and partial delight, she said that she had

not. The fact that I wasn’t aware of this, in the life of my wife

of 44 years, was astounding. The idea that she agreed to string

some popcorn with me that evening was even more so.

So, that very night, I went to the store and got two boxes of

microwave popcorn, even as my dear wife located needles

and thread. When the corn was popped we turned on our

favorite shows, and then strung it into what turned out to be

the perfect garlands for our wonderful, old-fashioned

Christmas tree.

As you look forward to the coming holidays, you might

want to consider the idea of simplifying them and of using

just a few ideas from the past. Some of those things really are

worth doing again. I recently got to spend a cozy December

evening watching TV and stringing popcorn with my best

friend.

the devastating news from law

enforcement about the car accident.

To deal with his loss, Darryl

wrote a book about the life of

his son. The book is entitled, “A

Life Half Lived” which is a true

story of love, addition, tragedy

and hope. Darryl wrote the

book to provide the reader with

a glimpse inside the modern

drug culture and the consequences

that come with it. After

he wrote the book, Darryl

decided to share his story with

groups of young people which

resulted in his becoming a motivational

speaker. His mission in talking to teens is to educate

them on the dangers and consequences of substance abuse. He

wants teens to think about the power of choice, association,

love and intervention. Darryl strongly believes it is a matter

of life and death as we are in the middle of a state and national

epidemic and crisis.

Darryl was asked about the many educational white papers

that are included in his website and whether because of the

broad expanse of the topics he has written about, and whether

he was thinking of becoming a life coach for teens. Darryl

said he was certainly considering it. A life coach helps people

move forward and set personal and professional goals to give

them the life they want. He would hope to work with teens to

get them on their right path early on in life.

those mentioned here. If you would like to see the show,

and the decadent Saudi monarchy as the ultimate enemies of

Islam. After seeing thousands of US soldiers stationed in the

Holy Land, Al-Qaeda had a new #1 target: America.

To Oliver Stone, Bill Clinton was a neo-con wolf in sheep’s

clothing.

Under Clinton, our military became the ever-present

policemen wherever there were Muslims misbehaving or in

danger. US boots and bombs were active in Bosnia, Kosovo,

Somalia, and Iraq – often without the American people’s

knowledge.

Stone argues that when 9/11 sparked the War on Terror, it

wasn’t a real change; it was just a continuation of the Clinton

policy of multi-theater warfare in the Muslim World.

After the Cold War, the United States could have chosen

peace. Instead, it mapped out a path of perpetual conflict with

Russia and Islam.

Essentially, we are at War with Eurasia and Eastasia. And

the only winner is Big Brother.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Start

preparing now to make sure you get

the credit you’re due for all that effort

you put in to get that project off the

ground. A new challenge emerges after

the 15th.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re

still charging full steam ahead on the

job -- and that’s fine. But take time to

share the joy of preparing for the upcoming holidays with folks you love.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A former detractor resists joining your ranks

just yet. Give him or her time to learn more about what you’re doing.

Meanwhile, devote more time to friends and family.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be careful not to be goaded into a tiff by

someone who might be looking for a fight. Remain cool as you make your

exit. Be assured that others will rally to your support.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Kudos on getting the well-deserved Lion’s

share of the rewards for a job well-done. Now you can take a breather from

your workaday duties and spend time with your family.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You enjoy a quick spurt of renewed

energy just in time to meet that upcoming deadline. A potentially romantic

situation looms. How it develops will be up to you.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch out for distractions that could

cause delays and leave you running twice as fast to finish your work by the

15th. Then go ahead and have fun.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might prefer to work on current

tasks on your own. But be open to a potentially useful suggestion from

someone who admires you and wants to help.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Avoid rushing full gallop

into that volunteer project without knowing what’s expected of you. Take

things a step at a time as you begin to find your way.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: You should begin

to feel more comfortable expressing your emotions. This will go a long way

in helping you with that personal situation.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old friend gives confusing

signals. Best advice: Don’t assume that things will necessarily work themselves

out. Ask questions and demand straight answers.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new relationship needs time to

develop. Be careful not to let your emotions flood your natural sense of

caution. Meanwhile, check out that new job offer.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of right and wrong sometimes causes you

to come into conflict with others. But you invariably come out ahead.

Longtime “Friend”

Celebrated at Annual State

House Christmas Event!

For the past ten years, the Friends of the Vermont State

House and their 130 volunteer tour guides and gift shop attendants

have celebrated the holiday season with a party marking

the beginning of the Christmas season and decorating the tree

in the main lobby of the capitol building.

Under the guidance of State Curator David Schütz, the 8

foot Christmas tree was decorated with ornaments reminiscent

of those from the Victorian-era that celebrate Vermont’s historic

State House - most of ornaments have been created by

the volunteers themselves over the years. State House Tours

Coordinator, Angelica Caterino, and Assistant State Curator,

Jack Zeilenga, administer the “Friends” volunteer program

and planned the ornament-making and tree bedecking party.

At this year’s gathering, longtime Under the Dome Gifts

manager, Lorraine Guinard, was honored for her 17 years

managing all aspects of the State House gift shop - entirely as

a volunteer. Lorraine has personally selected a team of other

volunteers who will manage the shop in coming years - following

her pending “retirement.”

The Friends’ board, volunteers and State Curator’s Office

staff all celebrated Lorraine’s amazing achievements, and

presented her with a ceremonial royal crown as well as other

gifts celebrating Lorraine’s beloved Vermont.

The Vermont Curator’s Office and the Friends of the State

House wish one and all a joyful and glorious holiday season!

Being the main caregiver for a loved one, regardless of

what illness he/she may have, is one of the most stressful

and exhausting (physically & emotionally) jobs

anyone can have! Combine that with all the stress, work,

excitement and emotions of a busy holiday season and you

could have an unmanageable situation. Below are some tips to

set you and your loved one up for a less stressful and more

enjoyable holiday season this year!

Holiday Tips for Caregivers

1. Be realistic – the holidays don’t have to be perfect! Adjust

your expectations and trust your instincts on where to spend

your energy and what traditions are really important to both of

you. Remember that you can recognize, more than anyone,

how much you and your loved one can handle.

2. Plan ahead – schedule time for shopping, cooking, cleaning

and other activities. Enlist help from other family members,

friends and neighbors. You are not in this alone!

3. Learn to say no – family, friends and coworkers will understand

if you can’t participate in every event or social gathering.

Pick and choose what you say yes to.

4. Entertaining - If you’re usually the one hosting a large

meal, consider having someone else host or share the work. If

you do choose to host, prepare the main course and have

Sharing Your Care

Open Enrollment Countdown: Sign up for 2018

Health Coverage by December 15th

State officials marked the end of the first month of Open

Enrollment by thanking Vermonters for acting promptly

ahead of this year’s deadline and reminding those who still

need coverage to be sure to log in to VermontHealthConnect.

gov or call by December 15th. They also announced that the

customer support center will be open the next two Saturdays

(12/2 & 12/9) to take applications and change requests from

new and renewing members.

“Most calls are being answered in under a minute,” said

Cory Gustafson, Commissioner of the Department of Vermont

Health Access, “but it’s important to note that the actual application

can be lengthy, especially for new members who are

seeking financial help for the first time. The Saturday hours

can be a good option for Vermonters who are busy during the

week.”

The special Saturday hours are offered for new applicants

signing up for coverage and for existing members who want

to change plans, add a household member to their plan, or

report a change in income or other household information.

Members will also be able to pay for their coverage and

request online account access, while those who want to

address other account issues are asked to call during the week

or to log into their online accounts.

More than four out of five Vermonters who sign up through

Vermont’s health insurance marketplace qualify for federal

premium tax credits and/or state subsidies to lower their

monthly premiums. Income thresholds vary by household

size, going up to about $48,000 for an individual, $65,000 for

a two-person household, and $98,000 for a family of four. The

amount of financial help varies by household income, with a

Older Driver Safety Awareness Week is Dec. 4-8

Older Driver Safety Awareness Week (Dec. 4-8) reminds

drivers and families that resources are available regarding

driving in the aging population.

It’s a fact of life that individuals experience physical and

mental changes with age, sometimes so minor they may not

even be noticed. But older adults can also experience other

changes, such as slower reaction times, night blindness or

pain and stiffness, which can affect driving skills.

Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) offers comprehensive

clinical assessments for those who may be at high risk

for an automobile crash. The process for this assessment typically

involves the following steps:

1. An occupational therapist, trained in the clinical driver

evaluation, determines the effects of one’s medical condition,

medication needs and the functional limitations they may

present on the road;

2. A client attends both the clinical and on-road assessment

with another licensed driver who may act as a coach;

3. The evaluation involves visual screening, standardized

assessments of cognition and memory, range of motion,

muscle strength and sensation, and visual perceptual skills.

Appropriate patients to refer for assessments are experienced

drivers who have a valid driving license, with a referral

from their physician, who may have a condition that affects

their cognitive/decision-making skills such as traumatic brain

injury, stroke or cerebral vascular accident, multiple sclerosis,

• • •

• • •

everyone bring a side dish and/or dessert. Let your guests help

with cleaning up after.

5. Take a breather – make time for yourself, eat healthy and

get enough rest. Take a little time to do something enjoyable

whether it’s a movie, a massage, reading a book or taking a

nap.

6. Support – be aware that the holidays may evoke memories

of better times, not just for your loved one but also for you.

Talking with a close friend, a counselor or a caregiver support

group can help with all the emotions that may bubble up.

There are many websites available to support caregivers

that offer helpful hints, information and support. Many are

disease specific but the Family Caregiver Alliance (https://

www.caregiver.org) has a wide array of topics and supports

and information available. If you haven’t checked it out, I

recommend trying it. If you’re not a computer user, local

agencies are also a good resource for support and information.

typical individual member having an annual income just over

$25,000 and receiving nearly $400 per month toward the

2018 insurance plan of their choice. Couples and families

generally receive more. In addition, income-qualifying

Vermonters also have the choice to enroll in an Enhanced

Silver plan with cost-sharing reductions. These plans allow

members to pay a lower deductible and maximum out-ofpocket–

like gold and platinum plans offer – while only paying

the monthly premium of a silver plan.

State officials encourage Vermonters to evaluate their

options before confirming a plan. Vermont Health Connect’s

Plan Comparison Tool, which can help individuals and small

business employees determine the best choice for their families’

needs and budgets, has been used more than 15,000 times

since the launch of the 2018 tool. This is an increase of nearly

40% over last year. The interactive site allows Vermonters to

compare plans not just by monthly premiums and deductibles,

but also by estimated total annual costs based on the age and

health status of each household member.

Vermonters who qualify for financial help have three ways

to apply through Vermont’s health insurance marketplace:

online (http://VermontHealthConnect.gov), by phone (tollfree:

855-899-9600), or with one of more than 150 in-person

assisters located across the state.

Vermonters whose household incomes are too high to

qualify for financial help have the additional option of enrolling

directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont or MVP

Health Care and establishing a single point of contact with

their insurance carrier.

Parkinson’s disease, dementia and mild cognitive impairment.

During Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, the American

Occupational Therapy Association is providing helpful information

on the following topics to help ease families through

the process:

• Tips for planning ahead in order to anticipate changes that

can affect driving.

• Talking points for guiding family conversations.

The role occupational therapy can play in evaluating drivers.

• Equipment that can help an individual drive safely for as

long as possible.

• Community resources typically available to help seniors no

longer able to drive stay mobile.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | GETTING TOGETHER

Host a

Cookie

Exchange

© FOTOLIA

The holiday season comes with

a lot of activities, decorating

and travel — leaving almost

everyone wishing for more time

in which to do it all. Christmas

cookie exchange parties are great

because in one swoop, they

allow us to spend time with

friends and family, and simplify

our holiday baking.

Follow this guide, and you will be

hosting a festive get-together that will

leave people envious that it wasn’t their

idea.

SET A DATE

The first step to hosting an unforgettable

Christmas cookie exchange is creating

a guest list and setting a date and

time.

Picking a date can be tricky. You will

want to pick a date close enough to the

holidays that the cookies will last for a

while and people are already thinking

of baking, but not so close to Christmas

that you infringe on people’s “last-minute”

time to finish projects and shopping.

SEND THE INVITATIONS

The idea behind the Christmas cookie

exchange is that each person invited

brings one kind of cookie to share. Be

sure this is clear in your invitation, and

be sure to give your guests a cookie

count so they know how many to bring.

If you have any other rules you wish

to set for the exchange, they should be

communicated in the invitation. For

example, you might wish to make clear

that the cookies should be homemade

and seasonally appropriate.

PROVIDE OTHER REFRESHMENTS

While a good amount of sampling

will be done before the actual exchange,

you will want to provide more than

cookies. Think appetizers and finger

foods.

Serve an array of beverages, such as

coffee, iced teas or spiked punch. And

since it is a cookie party, you would be

remiss not to offer milk.

DON’T FORGET THE KIDDOS

If you are going to have kids at the

party, it might be nice to plan a special

activity for them, such as a cookie decorating

station. Bake extra batches of

blank sugar cookies and let the children

decorate them however they want.

You also might think about hiring a

trusted babysitter for a few hours

during the party to oversee the decorating

— leaving you and parents of

younger children to have fun socializing

at the party.

ARRANGE A PACKING STATION

Don’t forget the whole point of the

party is to exchange cookies. It is likely

none of your guests will try every cookie

during the party, so you need to provide

packing materials so they can take a

variety home with them.

Lay out boxes, sandwich bags and

sticker labels for people to pack up their

goodies. Offer colorful ribbon or cellophane

for an added special touch.

Holiday Movie Lineup

The holiday season

brings many traditions

— holiday baking,

decorating and parties, to

name a few. But when the

day is done, continue the

holiday cheer by cozying

up on the couch with a

great holiday movie.

Alone or surrounded by your favorite

people, here is a sampling of holiday

movies you should watch at least once.

ANIMATED

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965):

Follow the whole Peanuts gang as

Charlie Brown tries to understand what

Christmas is all about.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

(1993): A Tim Burton holiday masterpiece

follows Jack, a skeleton bored

with his own holiday of Halloween, who

tries on Christmas for size.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (two

versions) (1966 and 2000):

Incomparable and fantastic in their

own way, both will undoubtedly make

your heart grow three sizes.

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992):

If you ever doubted that Kermit the

Frog and Charles Dickens could create

magic, this film is here to prove otherwise.

Kermit as Bob Cratchit and

Michael Cain as Ebenezer Scrooge

make this film a casting win.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

(1964): This stop-motion animation is a

classic. It’s time to introduce a whole

new generation to Rudolf and his misfit

friends.

The Polar Express (2004): This recent

classic features breathtaking animation

and Tom Hanks as the voice over for

several characters, following a young

boy on a train ride to the North Pole.

Wonders never cease for those who

believe.

FEEL-GOOD FAMILY MOVIES

A Christmas Story (1983): We all had

that one toy we wanted desperately as a

child. For Ralphie Parker, this was the

Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot

range model air rifle with a compass in

the stock and “this thing which tells

time.”

National Lampoon’s Christmas

Vacation (1989): Clark Griswold has big

holiday plans. But like most plans,

things don’t go as expected. In other

words, disaster, Griswold style.

Home Alone (1990): Left at home at

Christmas by mistake, Keven

McCallister is left to fight off two reckless

burglars with creative pranks only a

child could imagine.

Elf (2003): Buddy the Elf is lovable

and full of so much Christmas cheer, he

will remind any Scrooge of the true

meaning of Christmas.

The Family Man (2000): One

Christmas night, Jack wakes to find his

lavish bachelor lifestyle replaced with

the life he would have had, had he

stayed with his college sweetheart.

Think a modern twist of the “what if”

plot of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The Santa Clause (1994): Tim Allen

provides a whole new (comedic) possibility

to the origins of Santa Clause.

© FOTOLIA

Prancer (1989): A farm girl finds a

wounded reindeer she believes is

Prancer, hoping to nurse it back to

health in time for Christmas.

CLASSICS

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946): George

Bailey has a wonderful life, and he will

leave you feeling like yours is pretty

great, too.

White Christmas (1954): Starring

Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney,

two of the greats remembered year after

year for their renditions of Christmas

classics.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947 and

1994): It’s OK to believe in Santa —

after all, faith is what Christmas is all

about.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | CLASSIC TRADITIONS

The Perfect Christmas Tree

But one aspect of Christmas

trees on which people tend to

hold a strong stance is material:

Are you a “real” Christmas

tree believer? Or do you prefer

an artificial tree?

To help you decide (or sway

you in a different direction),

consider the following pros

and cons of both Christmas

tree types.

ARTIFICIAL TREES

Benefits

Convenience: Each year,

this tree is simply taken out of

storage and assembled. Its

shape is always “perfect,” it

won’t molt its needles, and it

never needs to be watered.

Cost: While the initial

investment might be pricey

depending on the size and

style you choose (pre-lit, dusted

with fake snow, or ornamented

with pine cones, for

example), it is a cost that is

only incurred once, rather

than every year.

The “perfect tree” means different things to different people, and the merits of a fir

versus a pine, tall and slim versus short and wide, are argued at length each year.

Drawbacks

Non-biodegradable: This

means when you throw it out,

it will be in the landfill forever.

Sizable carbon footprint:

More than 85 percent of artificial

trees are made in China

and shipped to the United

States.

Fire hazard: They not only

burn easily but act as an

accelerant — causing much

more damage than if a live

tree were to burn in your

home.

LIVE TREES

Benefits

Made in the U.S.A.:

According to the USDA,

almost all of the 25 to 30 million

real Christmas trees sold

in the U.S. every year are

grown in the U.S.

Eco-friendly: Live trees are

recyclable.

Smell great: A natural

deodorizer, there is really

nothing like the scent of fresh

pine or balsam fir.

Drawbacks

Cost: Your cost will depend

on the size of tree you choose

as well as where you live, but

most trees run anywhere

from $20 to $200 — a reoccurring

cost as one tree will

only last the current holiday

season.

High maintenance:

Needles will begin to litter the

floor almost immediately, and

live trees must be watered

heavily every day.

Caring at Christmas

Don’t forget about our less-fortunate animal friends during the holidays. Offering your help this

holiday season is a great tradition to start. According to the American Society for the Prevention

of Cruelty to Animals, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters each year.

While it is estimated that

3.2 million shelter animals are

adopted every year and

another 700,000 sheltered

strays are returned to their

owners, this still leaves many

animals in need of care —

especially during the holidays.

NEEDED DONATIONS

• Pet food and treats

• Puppy and Kitten formula

and nursing bottles

• Collars and leashes

• Towels and blankets

• Grooming supplies

• Kitty litter

• Newspapers

• Paper towels

• Cleaning supplies

• Crates and carriers

• Food bowls

• And don’t forget something

to play with.

DONATING YOUR

TIME AND TALENTS

If you would like to do more

than drop items off, shelters

can always use extra hands.

Walking animals, cleaning

kennels and doing laundry are

all never-ending tasks with

which shelter staff constantly

struggle to keep up.

Even volunteering one

Saturday could make a big

impact on your local shelter. If

you are looking to volunteer

more long term, consider volunteering

to transport animals

— a duty needed in

order to get animals to vet

appointments and adoption

fairs.

And don’t forget any talents

or skills you could donate. For

example, if you have decent

photography skills, offer to

update the animal photos on

the shelter’s website. Research

shows that the way shelter

animals are photographed

directly impact how many

inquiries they receive.

Holiday songs with storied pasts

The holiday season is not complete without music. Holiday hits

play in shopping malls, and families often trim the tree to their

favorite albums.

Even if Elvis’ “Blue Christmas” or Johnny

Mathis’ “Do You Hear What I Hear” reign

supreme in your household, it can be interesting

to learn about some of the other songs

made famous this time of year.

Modern classics

Classic carols may be the first Christmas

songs that come to mind. However, less than

a quarter century ago a pop singer managed

to contribute to the holiday music pantheon.

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas

is You,” released in 1994, is considered

to be the most popular modern Christmas

standard. With global sales exceeding 16

million copies, the song is one of Carey’s

biggest hits.

Sad Origins

“Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” with its

warning to children to be nice since Santa is

keeping tabs on kids’ behavior, has helped

children tow the line for decades. Songwriter

James “Haven” Gillespie was asked to pen

the tune during one of the darker times in

his life. Gillespie was jobless and poor and

his brother had just passed away — hardly

inspiration for a Christmas tune. However,

after thinking about the memories he shared

with his brother, Gillespie was able to pull

Some of the most recent versions of the

people’s hearts, and a few of these beloved

songs have interesting back stories.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | NEW TRADITIONS

Elf on the Shelf

Elf on the Shelf has transformed into

a 21st Century Christmas tradition

with “The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas

Tradition” — a children’s picture book

written by Carol Aebersold and Chanda

Bell, and illustrated by Coe Steinwart.

While forms of this tradition

have existed around the

world for centuries, this

Christmas-themed story of an

elf who keeps Santa informed

about who is naughty and

who is nice exponentially

increased the popularity of

the tradition.

INTRODUCING ELF

While Elf starts off a wonderful

Christmas season with

a bang, be sure not to introduce

him too soon. You don’t

want him to run out of ideas

or let time steal the novelty

out of the activity for your

children.

It is customary for Elf to

appear no earlier than

December 1. Many people

also see their Elf for the first

time the night the family decorates

the Christmas tree.

STICK TO SIMPLE

SHENANIGANS

Elf should be able to get

into her position easily, and

she shouldn’t raise the expectation

too much, too soon.

If she gets up to very complicated

hijinks early in the

season, she might run out of

mischievous and creative

ideas before Christmas.

Pinterest is a great tool for

finding out what kind of shenanigans

other families’ Elves

have gotten into.

AN ELF IS AN

ELF IS AN ELF

While the commercialism

of Elf is deep-seated, you don’t

have to have the advertised

Elf. Anything can be an Elf.

Any small figurine or stuffed

animal will do, with a dose of

Christmas magic, of course.

SET A REMINDER

This is especially important

if you’ve set the expectation

that Elf is up to something different

each night.

Don’t let Elf forget to adventure

around the house, so you

won’t have disappointed or

confused little faces in the

morning.

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

Remember, there is no official

rule book. Maybe your elf

appears in a different spot

each morning, or maybe he

only appears when the kids

have been good.

Maybe he brings treats or

small notes with him. There is

no right or wrong way to start

an Elf tradition. He is just

there to add another dash of

magic to the season.

The history of Christmas stockings

Just when the excitement of opening presents abates

after the last of the packages under the Christmas tree

have been torn open, children and adults alike may discover

that there are more treats to be had nestled inside

of stockings hung on the mantle.

The hanging of Christmas stockings is a tradition with

an extensive history. Several legends attribute the hanging

of stockings to different people or events. Here is a look at

some of the stories that have made Christmas stockings so

popular.

ST. NICHOLAS DAY

Rather than hanging stockings on Christmas, many countries

celebrate Saint Nicholas Day on December 6, and this

is when stockings are proudly left out for treats. The small,

inexpensive trinkets are later unwrapped and enjoyed on

Christmas Day.

DUTCH HERITAGE

One tradition says that, in 16th century Holland, children

kept their clogs filled with straw in front of the hearth for

Santa’s reindeer to find. They also left treats for Santa Claus.

In return, Santa would leave gifts in the clogs. Over time,

stockings were swapped out for clogs.

MERCHANT’S FAMILY STORY

A popular tale tells the story of a merchant, his wife and

three daughters. After the wife falls ill and dies, the man

becomes devastated and squanders all of his wealth on

frivolous things to mask his sadness. When it comes time for

the daughters to marry, the man does not have money for a

dowry. St. Nicholas hears of the plight and knows the man

would be too proud to accept charity. Therefore, St. Nicholas

anonymously tosses three bags of gold coins down the chimney.

The man’s daughters had done the laundry prior and

left their stockings hanging by the fireplace to dry. The gold

landed in the stockings, thus starting the Christmas stocking

tradition.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | GIVING BACK

A Season of Giving

T

he

holiday season is known as one of giving. While it is good to make a conscious effort to give

back throughout the year, the holidays are a time when we especially like to think of others.

Here are just a few ways you

can spread the act of kindness

this holiday.

Shop for other families in

need. Take your children along.

Let them be an active participant

in choosing the gifts and,

depending on which organization

you are working with,

wrapping the gift. This helps

teach children that Christmas

is about the giving, not receiving,

of gifts.

Give what you already have.

Have your children choose a

few of their own toys to donate.

This is a nice way to think of

others and make room for the

new items they are sure to

receive. This can also teach

your children to be grateful for

what they have and nurture a

desire to share with others.

Surprise those who serve

your community. Take your

holiday family baking tradition

one step further and bundle up

nice little care packages. Drop

these goodies off to groups of

people who serve the community

— firefighters, ambulance

drivers and nurses, for example.

You can always give to as

many every year as you can, or

pick a different group to share

the holiday cheer with each

year.

Carol to those with infrequent

visitors. Caroling is a

great way to spread Christmas

cheer to those who might not

have anyone to share the holiday

with. The word “carol”

actually means a dance or a

song of joy and praise. A festive

holiday tune can brighten anyone’s

spirits.

Start a sibling secret Santa.

Have each family member

draw names from a hat and gift

something extra special for

that person. You can even

enforce rules to make the activity

both more distinct and fair,

such as requiring that all gifts

be handmade. Exchange these

presents on Christmas Eve

instead of Christmas morning

to distinguish the gifts even

more.

Holiday Message

from

Project Independence

(PI) Adult Day

Without the ongoing and

generous support of our donors

we could not continue to provide

the high quality programming, care and nutrition that we do. All

monies received go directly to the fundamental purpose and

heart of our services, our participant’s direct needs. Services

that are supported through donations are:

➢social programming and activities such as trips and entertainers

➢therapeutic activities such as yoga and reiki

➢equipment and products to provide for personal care needs

➢public educational programs and speakers

➢purchase of items that improve our physical surrounding both

aesthetically and functionally

This past year for example:

➢participants experienced wonderful shows from the No Strings

Marionette Puppet Company, Sherri’s Jubilee, and Buddy the

Clown

➢PI purchased games such as the corn hole toss that are designed

for stimulation and movement therefore promoting overall

wellness

➢Purchased new dining room tables and chairs that not only

provide a visually pleasing atmosphere for all to enjoy a meal

together but are functional by design for staff to better assist all

participants

➢Christmas Party for participants, including a visit from Santa

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | GIVING BACK

Keepsake Traditions

All Christmas traditions are magical,

but keepsake traditions are just a

bit more special. They act as a type of

scrapbook or album of moments for

us to remember and share with others.

Create memories for the years

to come by starting one of these

traditions this holiday season.

CREATE KEEPSAKE

ORNAMENTS

Make ornaments as a family

every year. You can go to most

local craft stores and purchase

clear glass bulbs that you can

either fill (with glitter for snow)

or paint the outside of. If you’re

feeling extra crafty, try your

hand at salt dough ornaments.

GIFT AN ORNAMENT

Each Christmas, gift an ornament

to each of your children.

Think about the year, and consider

what each child has

accomplished, overcome or

experienced and gift an ornament

that conveys a particular

memory, or even the general

feeling that year evoked. By the

time they are grown, each child

will have a full set of ornaments

to take with them to start their

own family tree.

WRITE CHRISTMAS LETTERS

Each year, have a member of

the family, or several family

members, record a bit of family

history. This can be anything

from highlights to challenges

the family experienced throughout

the year. Place them in a

special Christmas box. Make it

extra special by having the kids

decorate the box. Over the

years, you can pull out the letters

and share them.

BUILD TREE SKIRT

MEMORIES

Purchase a plain tree skirt.

Any color will do, as long as it is

a solid color. Then, every year,

trace your child’s hand on the

skirt and write their name

inside the outline. You can begin

a new ring for each child or

trace their hands side by side. It

will be fun later to look back at

the skirt and the growing little

hands.

PRESENT CHRISTMAS

PAJAMAS

A wonderful Christmas tradition

is gifting Christmas pajamas.

These can be wrapped and

put under the tree to be opened

on Christmas Eve. This way,

everyone can wake up

Christmas morning wearing

their holiday jammies.

SVEN

~2 Year Old Neutered Male

Sven is 47lbs of wiggly-cuteness! He was born without

a tail, but with a great personality! He can be

timid when he is get-ting to know his new surroundings

and peo-ple, but gains confidence with time. He

came to CVHS when his family was growing, and

he wasn't a fan of active toddlers. Don't get Sven

wrong, he seeks an active home that can provide

him with walks/hikes, and many adventures, but it

should be free of young children and cats. Sven is

very new to CVHS, so we are still getting to know

him. So far it's very clear that if you need to go for a

car ride, or want to play fetch, Sven is there.

Responsible Reptile Ownership

DEAR PAW’S CORNER:

Why are some species of

reptiles illegal to own in

certain states, like New

York?

-- Darren in

Fort Myers, Florida

DEAR DARREN: Reptiles

ranging from tiny turtles

and lizards to iguanas and

boa constrictors are popular

pets and can be found in many homes. They are odorless,

fairly quiet and mostly keep to themselves in a contained

environment.

However, as The New York Times reports, many states

have concerns about how reptiles are obtained, housed and

transported before they come into a home as a pet. These

methods can have a terrible impact on the environment as

well as the welfare of the animal. A 2014 investigation into

a major wholesaler found that 80 percent of the reptiles and

amphibians in its care were sick, injured or dead due to

overcrowding, stress and poor hygiene and nutrition, the

Times reports. Capturing healthy reptiles in the wild can

impact the local ecology, but the alternative, breeding in

captivity, can create increased susceptibility to disease.

Reptiles and amphibians also need a lot of attention and

care to thrive in a captive environment, something many

owners don’t consider. Up to 75 percent of them die in

their first year after being brought home. New York’s reptile

laws, like others, are meant to discourage bringing in

pets that, if they escape, can damage the local ecology, and

to comply with state health requirements.

If you decide to own an amphibian or reptile, do your

part by first learning as much as you can about caring

properly for the pet. Follow your state’s laws about exotic

pets, and source only from reputable dealers. Find a veterinarian

who specializes in these pets and get a checkup

as soon as you purchase one.

Bringer of Babies

Where do babies come from? Explaining this to a child

has required many imaginative explanations. During the

19th century in the U.S. and Europe, the most popular

answer was “the stork brought him” or “he was found in the

cabbage patch.” There are stories dating well before the

1600s that say a baby was found under a large cabbage leaf

or was delivered by a flying stork.

For centuries, each country had a story. The baby was

brought from midwives, wild women of the forest, owls,

foxes, a male water sprite, a raven or a crow. The baby

could be found under a gooseberry bush, or a lime tree in

countries that didn’t grow cabbages. No one really knew

where babies came from until the 1680s, when the microscope

and other discoveries helped scientists figure it out. It

was not until the 1830s that most people were convinced a

man and woman, not a stork, made a baby.

In Germany, there was the legend of Der Kindlbringer,

the bringer of babies. He carried a bundle of babies in a

bunting, in a basket or on his back. He was dressed like a

harlequin. Several different German porcelain figurines that

were made in about 1850 were sold at a Theriault auction

on July 26, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The five-inch porcelain

figure of a man carrying six babies sold for $513.

Q: I would like to get vintage champagne glasses to friends

as an anniversary gift. I have been told that new glasses are

flutes, but old ones are coupe-shape with round bowls.

A: Wine connoisseurs will tell you to serve champagne in

a flute. That shape became popular about 1950, and blownglass

hollow-stem champagne glasses were banned from

many restaurants. The stems were too hard to clean. The

flute replaced it for sparkling drinks. However, there

recently has been a new way to serve champagne. Use a

regular wine glass, probably a Bordeaux glass that has

straight sides and tapers a bit to the rim. Some experts say

these glasses let the aroma last longer. The bubbles look

best in a flute, but any of these glasses can be correct for

less-formal parties. The flute probably is expected for a

The 50th anniversary edition of “Kovels’ Antiques &

Collectibles Price Guide 2018” makes a great gift. The

548-page softcover book features 20,000 listings and more

Public Meetings on Moose in Vermont

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department

is holding three public informational meetings

about Vermont’s moose in December.

“We are holding the meetings on the status

of Vermont’s moose population, including

information about new challenges facing

moose and current research efforts here in the

Northeast,” said Vermont’s Director of

Wildlife Mark Scott. “We want to share

information and educate Vermonters about

Vermont’s moose population, and get a better

feel for what other information the public

would like about Vermont’s moose herd.

Anyone interested in Vermont’s moose population

will want to attend one of these meetings.”

The meetings will include information

about historical moose populations in

Jerry Dudley's Auto Connection

Vermont, the impacts of climate change and

winter ticks on Vermont’s population, and the

current three-year moose study in which

moose cows and calves are being monitored

for survival.

Wildlife staff will be on hand to show pictures

of Vermont moose and their habitats.

The meetings are free and will be held from

solution. Fish & Wildlife just announced it

now has a license gift certificate available on

their website.

“People have long requested hunting and

fishing license gift certificates so we have

created one that is easy to use on our website,”

said Vermont Fish & Wildlife

Lowest temperature: 6 degrees on the 28th

Warmest minimum 41 degrees on the 2nd

Monthly average 32.1 which was 3.2 degrees below normal

Cooling degree days 0 Normal 0

Average daytime sky cover: 6/10ths which is partly to mostly cloudy

Heaviest precipitation: 0.39” on the 2nd

Accumulated November precipitation 1.98” Normal 3.17

Precipitation Percent of normal: 62% of normal

Largest snowfall: 1.8” on the 27th

Thunderstorm days: None

Strongest winds 45 mph on the 29th from the northwest.

November 2017 Weather – Colder, Drier, Relatively Quiet

Temperatures that started out very mild reaching 62 degrees on

the 3rd of last month eventually oscillated back and forth, but also

lowered incrementally. By the end of last month, temperatures

dipped to 6 degrees above with a late November high that day of

only 14 degrees.

It was a drier than usual month. Precipitation was just registering

62 of normal. Likewise - snowfall of 5.5 inches accrued was about

60% of normal which came in frequent snow showers and flurries

and very limited amounts mostly at the tail end of frontal system

later in the month. November 2017 could be best described as rather

blas’e which is typically “the” or one the cloudiest months. However

there was a few sunny days occurred on the 8th, 21st, the 30th. A

close second to November in the amount of cloud cover is December.

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2)…

Late November measurement for Carbon Dioxide CO2 was

406.29 ppm as measured at the Mauna Loa Observatory. Highestever

daily average CO2 at Mauna Loa Observatory 412.63 ppm back

on April 26th, 2017. Expect this chemistry measurement of the atmosphere

to continue to skyrocket in the northern hemisphere winter.

Normal or reasonable CO2 for a stable optimum climate is 350.0

parts per million but most of the Holocene era when civilization

evolved and the climate was stable between interglacial periods had

carbon dioxide measurements at 280 parts per million. Those days

are long gone.

Big Rises in Sea Level for parts of the U.S. East Coast...

Sea level change rates along the East Coast have doubled since

1990, according to James Davis of the Lamont-Doherty Earth

Observatory at Columbia University. The melting ice on Greenland

and Antarctica alone would account for an increase in the rate of sea

level rise on the East Coast of 0.04 to 0.15 mm per year, which is

equivalent to 7.8 inches of sea level rise along the northern U.S. East

Coast and a whopping 2.5 feet along the southern U.S. East Coast.

As ice vanishes, the loss of its gravitational pull lowers sea level

nearby, even as sea level rises farther away. Researchers used tidal

gauge data from the U.S. East Coast to perform this latest study.

However, unlike earlier studies, this research project included the

loss of ice mass from Greenland and Antarctica among the causes

of sea level acceleration. Modeling the 25-year-period since 1990

produces an acceleration of sea level rise in good agreement with the

gauge observations when melting from the Greenland and Antarctic

ice sheets are included, according to the NASA report “When you

leave the ice out, you get a much worse fit,” Davis said.

Slowing of Earth’s Rotation could mean more Earthquakes in

2018...

Every so often, the Earth’s rotation slows by a few milliseconds

per day. This is inconsequential to the average human, and causes

only mild annoyance to the people whose job it is to measure Earth’s

rotation with great precision. That may be about to change, if the

hypothesis set out by two geologists proves true. In a study published

in Geophysical Research Letters earlier this year, Roger Bilham of

the University of Colorado and Rebecca Bendick of the University of

Montana predict that, because of Earth’s slowing rotation, the world

will see a significant spike in large earthquakes in 2018.

To make the prediction, Bilham and Bendick studied every

earthquake since 1900 that recorded more than 7.0 on the moment

magnitude scale. They found that approximately every 32 years,

there is an uptick in these large quakes. The only factor that strongly

correlates is a slight slowing of the Earth’s rotation in a five-year

period before the uptick.

“Of course that seems sort of crazy,” Bendick told Science. But

think through it a little and it might not seem so outlandish. The

Earth’s rotation is known to go through regular decades-long periods

in which it slows down and speeds up. Even seasonal changes, like a

strong El Niño, can affect the planet’s rotation.

But to have the kind of effect that would produce more severe

earthquakes, we have to look deeper. Starting from its very center,

the planet is made of a solid iron and nickel “inner core,” liquid

iron and nickel “outer core,” a thick liquid mantle, and finally a thin

solid crust. Earthquakes occur on the crust, but the crust floats on the

mantle.

Though Bilham and Bendick don’t know for sure, they believe

that every so often the Earth’s mantle might stick a little more to the

crust. That could change how the liquid outer core flows. And because

it’s all metal down there, the change in flow will affect planet’s

magnetic field, which would ever so slightly affect the Earth’s

rotation and thus change the length of the day by milliseconds. The

Earth’s rotation has been slowing down for the past four years.

The inference is clear,” Bilham told the Guardian. “Next year we

should see a significant increase in numbers of severe earthquakes.”

Instead of an average of about 15-20 large earthquakes, we might see

25 or 30 in 2018. Bilham can’t tell with any certainty where these

might take place. Many large earthquakes occur in places where they

don’t affect human life, but in the wrong spot they can wreak havoc.

In an ill-prepared country like Haiti, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake in

2010 killed more than 100,000 people. In Japan, with much better

buildings, a magnitude 9.0 quake (which releases about 1,000 times

more energy than a 7.0) in 2011 killed some 18,000 people largely

from a tsunami created by giant 9.0 earthquake.

So, can we predict earthquakes? It’s a question that vexes

seismologists, not because it is unreasonable, but because scientists

have tried many times and always ended in failure. Even after many

advances in seismology, as Richard Luckett of the British Geological

Survey puts it, “when an earthquake occurs, it is essentially a

random event”.

Vermont Weather Trends – December...

After a not so cold start to the month we’ll see a big pattern

change to colder weather and it should hang out a while with some

staying power, probably as we creep closer to the holidays or

through about the winter solstice. The Winter solstice this year is on

December 21st a Thursday and occurs 11:28 AM EST. Just as we

technically get into winter or thereabouts, there could be a large scale

weather pattern change toward one that favors milder conditions or

an oscillation in temperatures.

In recent years, there seems to be persistent pattern for storms

that feature overrunning of milder air aloft. These weather systems

usually perform the classic changeover type precipitation from snow

to sleet to freezing rain to rain, which is dreadful and ends up as a

thick coating of ice. I’m expecting this kind of scenario toward the

Christmas and New Year’s Holiday, but these are very hard to predict

more than 10 days out. I suspect with mild intrusions this could be

the case late this month.

In-between for the second and third weeks of December – could

be OK for accumulating natural snow but a slower start, and snow

preservation staying below 32 degrees, getting a decent jump start

on snow making . Skiers and snow boarders may have to wait for the

better conditions to develop after the holidays next month, but many

light coatings will add up and a couple moderate to good snowfalls

are very possible to tease folks who winter recreate like myself. Personally,

I love all 4 seasons in my Green Mountains but I do not care

one wit for one season to embed into another. I would love to tell you

it will be all snow all the time, but this now a day’s especially with a

shifting climate trend towards warmer just have adjust. This adjustment

usually means lots and lots of ice!

Winter prediction...

Indications are for a sputtering start for winter 2017-2018, but one

that could or should be more back loaded. January and February into

a portion of March should see some colder snaps. Each change coming

out of and into these colder snaps should mean snowfall. This

December into January will also feature periods of minor snowfall

with the abnormally warmer Great Lakes in play. Lake Effect moisture

does not hit every location equally, but is amplified on the mountain

slopes of especially northern Vermont. For every tenth of an inch

of snow on the Barre-Montpelier Road, there could be an inch on the

upper terrain and I’m expecting this “elevation amplification” with

lake effect snow showers and snow squalls going into January and

possibly February.

There was certain to be some more “Polar Vortex ruckus” with

deep coastal low pressure systems once the pattern is sufficiently

cold with high latitude blocking switching up to a negative version

of the Arctic Oscillation and North Atlantic Oscillation in favor for

occasional periods moderate to heavy snowfall especially for interior

New England. The worry is that we might be seeing some ice from

time to time and wet snowfalls will become more the norm less the

powdery colder storms due to overall warmer planet and warmer

trajectories of climate change.

Bottom line, my prediction – near to slightly below normal back

loaded winter, good for Sugaring in the early to mid spring and valley

elevations seeing near normal snowfall but more snowfall than

normal at the ski resort elevations especially mid to late winter.

“Kevin P was very prompt in

attending to our needs.”

“We really appreciated how

quickly Sarah returned our

emails!”

“Kevin P was always there

with the right answer or

approach to any situation.”

“Lisa was wonderful!

Couldn’t have been any

better.”

“Rich did a great job. Ads,

signs, calls, information and

help was all great!”

“Incredibly quick with the

sale!”

“Matt Can Sell!”

“Selling our house was one of the most

important decisions of our lives. I can’t

begin to imagine what it would have been

like had it not been for Marcia Biondolillo

and Willam Raveis. From the beginning

Marcia was personal, professional, and

knowledgeable about the real estate market.

She accommodated our busy work schedule

and always came prepared and on time. To

be honest, the experience was seamless

from start to end. The greatest compliment I

could pay Marcia is that I completely trusted

her with the future of my family and I would

consider her a friend after having worked

with her. If anyone is looking to sell a house I

highly recommend Marcia Biondolillo. If you’re

still not convinced that William Raveis is the

way to go, Marcia sold our house in three

days. That speaks for itself.”

“Kevin C was very

professional and always

available.”

“Very courteous people,

well-oiled service!”

“Butch was such a great

person to work with!”

“My Agent Rocks! Courtney

really did take care of

me and all the stressful

selling my house.”

honest. Demonstrated

strong and effective

advocacy for us and kept

everyone focused as we

approached closing!”

“Courtney and the whole

Raveis team were a joy to

work with, first as buyers

then as sellers. Because

of Courtney’s great

communication we always

felt up to date on what

was happening with the

purchase of our new home

and the sale of our previous

one. She was generous

with her time, always made

herself available to answer

our questions, and never

pressured us to make

decisions. I recommend her

without reservations!”

“Rich, your countless hours

and attention along the way

was amazing. We love our

new home and can’t thank

you enough for all your hard

work!”
