DEBIT

Documenting a Disappearing Culture

By Katie Moritz

Photographer and writer

Peter Miller sits at a

table covered with miscellaneous

daily items:

papers, an old recorder, pens,

opened letters, his latest

book, Vanishing Vermonters,

Loss of a Rural Culture, still

encased in its protective plastic.

He faces a small fire and

frequently scrunches up his

face in frustration as he

talks.

“Some people call me a

whiner,” he shrugs. “I don’t

care.”

It might seem that way

when he talks about how

Vermont is changing.

However, it doesn’t take long to realize that

this is because he truly loves the state and the

people, especially the rural folk, that call it

home.

Although Peter Miller was born in New

York City and refers to himself as a flatlander,

he understands something important and

innate about Vermont natives: a vital part of

their culture is the depth behind the ordinariness

of their words. The example he uses is

that a farmer won’t tell you that their land is

beautiful. Instead, he or she may say “you

oughta be up here in the springtime, when the

red maples are coming out because it looks

just like the fall.”

In 1947, when Peter was fourteen or fifteen,

he and his family moved to Vermont. His

father was an alcoholic and there was no

money. Vermont was the cheapest place to

live. And he loved it. He could fish and hunt.

He loved the mountains. There were a lot of

hillside farmers around. He smiles, as he

remembers.

They didn’t talk down to you, they talked

directly to you. I liked them a lot.”

Now, in what seems like a gift back to those

people and those places, Miller talks directly

back. His latest book, Vanishing Vermonters,

Loss of a Rural Culture, is a collection of

photographs and interviews with rural

Vermonters. In its pages are stories that,

although hopeful, are also truthful: many of

his subjects had to reinvent themselves to

continue living here; many had to adapt to

changes both in their industries and throughout

Vermont’s geography.

Miller starts his book with the story of

Romaine Tenney. According to Miller’s book,

Tenney was born in 1900 on a family farm in

Ascutney, Vermont. He continued the family

tradition, and milked his twenty-five cows by

hand. He did not have electricity. He loved his

farm, his animals, and his community.

In 1964, because his property was in the

way of the new interstate 91, the government

offered to pay him $13,600. When he refused,

they took it through eminent domain.

According to the text, “on Friday, September

11, the sheriff came with a court order and he

and his deputies began moving items from the

horse barn, including the sleigh Romaine

loved to polish. After midnight, Romaine let

out the animals, barricaded the door and set

fire to all the buildings. He climbed into bed

with his lever-action rifle.”

Miller appears, for just a brief moment,

emotional, when he talks about Tenney. He

believes that the story of Romaine Tenney

represents the ending of an era, and in a way,

of Vermont’s rural culture. His book aims to

document what culture remains, and the people

who are continuing it. And photography is

a powerful medium within which to do that.

When Miller composes a photograph, he is

looking for a story.

“I don’t just start taking pics. I don’t have a

camera around my neck and just click click

click.”

Miller will sit in the kitchen or outside and

talk with his subjects first. He likes to see how

a conversation will evolve. And he likes to

observe what is around him. Then he will try

to find a simple situation that relates to his

subjects.

“Find a place that looks decent for a photograph

then take it. Set up the cam, and say, ‘do

you mind if I take a pic? And they say nope.’

So I stands next to cam, and it has a remote,

and I look at them they look at me and they

talk. Otherwise, if they just look at the camera,

like with new digital cameras, they get

bored and their eyes glaze over. Which is terrible.”

One example he uses is a photo he took of

Fred Tuttle. In it, Tuttle is holding a photograph

of his father, who is holding a photograph

of his father. Miller got the idea when

he was sitting at Tuttle’s kitchen table and he

say the photo of Tuttle’s father holding the

photograph on the wall. On his way home,

Miller thought that if he could get Tuttle to

hold that photo, it would make for an interesting

picture, and, with three generations presented,

it did. It worked, because, as Miller

said, “it’s peculiar.”

Miller sighs as he explains, “I’d like to give

my archive to someone in Vermont before I

drop off... but it’s hard to do.”

Make the Season Brighter for Homeless Animals

Central Vermont Humane

Society would like to thank

all of the kind, generous

people who have done so

much to help homeless animals

in 2017. With your

support CVHS saved over

1,000 lost, homeless and

abused animals. CVHS puts

local animals first and 70%

of the animals they take in

each year are from

Vermont.

During this holiday season,

there are so many easy

ways to make the season

brighter for homeless animals.

Join us at the festive

Holiday with the Animals

party on Saturday, December

16 from 10 am - 2 pm at the

CVHS Adoption Center,

1589 Vt Route 14 S, East

Montpelier. There will be

delicious treats to eat, sweet

animals to greet and fun

activities including visiting

with Santa. You can brighten

the holidays for the shelter

animals by bringing donations from the wish

list or monetary support to continue to provide

life-saving medical treatment for these

needy animals.

Holiday Raffle tickets are now on sale, giving

you a chance to win any one of 35 amazing

prizes. All proceeds go directly to help

animals at the shelter. Prizes include a Google

Home, a Keurig Brewer, $100 gasoline and

• • •

pet store gift cards and so

much more. Check out the

full list of prizes and download

tickets at www.centralvermonthumane.org

and

at the CVHS adoption center.

Or you can double your

impact and save twice as

many animals by making a

monetary gift to this year’s

Holiday Fund Drive by Dec.

21. Two generous donors

have joined together to

match, dollar for dollar, the

first $10,000 donated to

CVHS by Dec. 21. Don’t let

this generous matching

donation opportunity pass

you by.

And yet another idea. Are

you still trying to find a

meaningful gift for someone

on your gift list? You can

make a gift to CVHS in

honor of someone special

and CVHS will send them a

card or provide you with an

attractive note that you can

share with them as a gift. You can sponsor a

specific animal who’s awaiting adoption or

make a donation to help all the animals at the

shelter.

Refer to www.centralvermonthumane.org

for more details on these opportunities or call

(802) 476-3811. Help CVHS continue to “go

the extra mile” for all needy animals right

here in our local communities.


On Friday, December 1st, Students from the Northfield Middle High

School Chorus sang seasonal and holiday music at the annual tree

lighting ceremony on the Common in Northfield. This year, the tree

lighting ceremony also incorporated Artist’s Night on the Common.

Organizers hailed the heavily attended event as a huge success.

Central Vermont Council on Aging

Seeks Shoebox Gifts & Volunteers

for Holiday Season

On Christmas Day, Central Vermont Council on Aging

(CVCOA) partners with dozens of community volunteers and

local businesses to prepare and deliver hot, holiday meals and

“shoebox” gifts to elder Vermonters. Many of these folks live

alone, without family or friends to share in the holiday. For

many isolated elder Vermonters, having a visitor bring them a

holiday meal and gift is the highlight of their day.

CVCOA is asking community members, including companies

and churches, to donate cash and/or new gift items to

support this event. A $25 donation will pay for 5 hot turkey

dinners or 5 gifts. We also need donations of new gift items in

shoeboxes. Gift items should be suitable for any adult regardless

of gender. Warm gloves and hats, socks, slippers, toiletries;

note pads, pens and stamps; gift cards; flashlights and

batteries; pot holders, kitchen towels, and mugs will be

accepted.

You may deliver your gift to Central Vermont Council on

Aging offices, located at 59 N. Main Street, 2nd Floor, Barre,

VT 05641, from 8:30am-4:30pm, by December 15. Central

VT Council on Aging staff and volunteers will gift wrap.

Pickup can be arranged for groups with multiple boxes. If you

are unable to fill a box but would like to donate individual

items, we would be happy accept individual items to add to

boxes we assemble. We also have many roles for volunteers,

including delivering hot meals and shoebox gifts, gift wrapping,

or providing administrative support.

We also need volunteers to help staff to set up, coordinate

deliveries, and clean up on the day of the event. To volunteer

go to www.cvcoa.org/volunteer.

Central Vermont Council on Aging welcomes financial

donations designated for this holiday event, or for our many

services for aging persons. Contributions can be mailed to the

above address, or made online at www.cvcoa.org/donate. For

further information, to arrange a pick-up of group gift shoeboxes,

or to volunteer please contact us at (802)479-0531.

Central Vermont Council on Aging thanks all of our community

partners who come together every year in support of

this holiday giving event for aging Central Vermonters. Thank

you for remembering elder Vermonters in your community!

PROJECT J.O.Y. (Joining

Old and Young)

Project J.O.Y. (spearheaded by the Lacasse family) will put

on a party on Christmas Day at the Berlin Health and Rehab at

2PM. All are welcome to come and join in the festivities.

There will be singing in the Day Room, presents distributed

(although we provide the presents, we DO need people to pass

them out), and snacks. Also, Santa Claus may be there!

Each resident will receive a couple presents as well as

homemade cookies, candy, and Christmas cards made by children

at local schools and day care centers.

You have no idea how this event will touch you or the resident

you visit. Friendships have developed and continued for

a long time. It’s a two-way street and we can learn so much

from each other.

The Lacasse family has spearheaded this event for close to

38 years. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to

contact Carole, Andy, or Ian at 229-9504. If you are interested

in participating Christmas Day, just arrive at Berlin Health and

Rehab shortly before 2PM. If you’d like to help wrap presents,

feel free to join us at 10AM, Saturday, December 16th, at

the First Congregational Church, 1808 Scott Hill Road in

Berlin. We’re generally done wrapping within an hour or so.

Hope you can join us.

Marlene Murray of Robar Road, Graniteville area, enjoyed being in her garden this year. She too won

the Granite Center Garden Club certificate award.

Granite Center Garden Club Presents Awards

Each year, the Granite Center Garden Club

presents awards to homes in the Barre area for

attractive floral gardens. This year, two women

gardeners from the Graniteville area have

each won a civic recognition award from

Granite Center Garden Club for their outstanding

floral gardens. The winners for this

year are Lee Larson of Upper Graniteville and

Marlene Murray from Robar Road.

Lee began landscaping her yard thirty years

ago. She has always enjoyed growing flowers.

Her gardens have multiplied and she has spent

many tireless hours planting, watering, weeding

and moving her plants around to give

them a better location for growth and beauty.

During the spring, colorful daffodils and

tulips abound her property as well as other

early blooming plants. In summertime, she

cares for many Asiatic lilies, groupings of

three colors of bee balm, sixty varieties of day

lilies, seventy selections of garden phlox,

ground covers, lupines, sedums, and numerous

other perennials.

Garden statuary has been added in recent

years to her gardens. Now, Lee has made a

few pieces of statuary herself, plus a large

twelve foot arch and a few toad houses.

Marlene began gardening thirteen years ago

after the death of her husband. Her sister-inlaw

would help her plan road trips which

would take them through Vermont towns and

Lee Larson of Graniteville Road stands surrounded

by her autumn blooming plants. She is a

recipient of a civic recognition award from the

Granite Center Garden Club.

they would stop at garden centers to purchase

perennials and shrubs. Now, the hillside below

her home consists of many vignettes of blooming,

healthy flower placed “just so” to enhance

display.

Among her favorite flowers are azaleas,

hibiscus, and all hosta plants. Buddha sits

with flowers as well as statuary.

Both Lee and Marlene are enthusiastic

about their gardening and speak with job

when talking about their gardens. They will

bring out their floral books and catalogues this

coming January and each will dream and plan

for next summer’s display.

Home Share Now Selected for National Award

Barre-based nonprofit Home Share Now is

one of six organizations across North America

selected by the National Association for

Community Mediation (NAFCM) and the

JAMS Foundation to participate in their

Community Mediation Grant Program. “We

are honored for the opportunity to bring

affordable community mediation to central

Vermonters, something that is hard to come

by outside of the legal system,” says Home

Share Now’s Executive Director, Christina

Goodwin. “We have long-been proponents of

conflict prevention, a cornerstone of our

homesharing program, and this opportunity

means we can help more aging adults navigate

the complex world of aging.”

Home Share Now will work with programs

in California, Minnesota, Michigan, Ottawa,

and Tennessee. Home Share Now and its fellow

grantees will be considering how to support

strong relationships between aging adults

and family members, caregivers, housemates,

landlords, assisted living facilities, and healthcare

providers, among others. The end-goal

will be to inform the development of training,

evidence-based strategies, policy, and research

• • •

at the national and international level so that

more adults can participate in supportive and

constructive decision-making regarding their

care.

With the cash award, Home Share Now

intends to hone and expand their elder mediation

program over the next two years. Since

2005 Home Share Now has employed a

mediator and since 2015 has been offering

conflict resolution services to the public by

way of partnerships with local housing organizations.

The 2015 pilot was in partnership

with the Lamoille Housing Partnership (LHP)

and SASH (Support and Services at Home);

pilot funding was provided by the Oakland

Foundation. Home Share Now’s staff mediator,

Roni Coleman, says “I’ve been committed

to providing community mediation in

central Vermont for over ten years and this

opportunity represents the next step. I look

forward to offering this important service to

our aging population and their support systems.”

Will Increasing the Minimum Wage Solve the Problem?

By William D. Moore Consequently, many businesses might respond

The General to a $15.00 mandate by eliminating positions,

Assembly will convene

its 2018 Session in less

than one month, and

the business community

is already concerned

about the direction in

which we may be headed.

It is apparent that one of the priority bills in

the new year will be to increase the minimum

wage to $15.00 an hour. The Central Vermont

Chamber of Commerce has joined many

other pro-business/pro-growth groups to

oppose this recommendation.

In 2014, the business community agreed to

a stepped increase in the minimum wage

from $8.73 an hour, (nearly a dollar above the

federal minimum) to $9.60 in 2016, $10.00 in

2017 and $10.50 in 2018. The agreement also

called for indexing the minimum wage,

beginning in 2019.

These increases were agreed to by all parties

interested in workers’ wages and enacted

by the General Assembly. One of the primary

reasons for the agreement was to allow businesses

to plan and prepare for increases and,

by indexing increases annually, to avoid the

constant battles over increasing the minimum

wage.

Minimum wage jobs are generally those at

the entry level. They are intended to be shortterm

until the employee gains the necessary

skills and experience to take on more responsibility.

More experience and responsibility

leads to better jobs which leads to increased

wages. The minimum wage was not created

to provide a permanent wage. The minimum

wage was in fact created to ensure that workers

cutting hours, and looking for new ways to

implement labor-saving technology.”

Such “labor-saving technology” is already

available in the forms of self-check out counters

and kiosks taking orders in restaurants.

We are concerned about the upward pressure

on wages that increasing the minimum

wage will have on the cost of doing business

in Vermont. We are concerned that simply

increasing the minimum wage does not

increase workers’ productivity. We are concerned

that the increase will in fact negatively

impact the productivity of current employees

who do not see their own wages increase

commensurate to the increase in the minimum

wage.

We are also concerned about the inflationary

impact that increasing the minimum wage

will have on the costs of goods and services

sold in Vermont. Businesses will not absorb

the increases and consumers will feel the

burden of increased prices.

Already, a significant study that has been

conducted looking at all sectors of Seattle’s

economy (where the minimum wage is $13.00

per hour) is showing a huge negative impact

on low-wage workers due to their working

significantly fewer hours because of the

increased minimum wage. The study found

that for every percent increase in hourly

wages, low-wage workers saw hours reduced

by three percent. The result was a loss of

roughly $125 per month due to working

fewer hours.

Automatically increasing wages does not

address the core issue. We need to be creating

a workplace that is assured that productivity

is commensurate to the increases in the mini-

during The Great Depression were not mum wage. Education and training

exploited.

We believe that market forces should determine

the minimum wage, not artificial

increases imposed by the legislature. In fact,

the market is already driving the wages

earned by Vermont’s workers. In 2016, only

10 percent of all Vermont workers earned less

than $10.45 per hour, at a time when the

minimum wage was $9.60 per hour.

According to a 2016 study by the Heritage

Foundation, “Starting wages of $15.00 per

hour mean full-time employees must create at

least $38,700 a year in value for their employers

(including wages, employer payroll taxes,

and Affordable Care Act mandated penalties).

Such a high hurdle would make it much

harder for less-experienced and less-skilled

workers to find full-time jobs. Many of these

workers are not yet productive enough to create

that much value for their employers and

businesses will not hire them at a loss.

are the keys to success. We must be educating

students to be prepared for the jobs of the

twenty-first century. Training and re-training

programs for incumbent workers and those

re-entering the workforce must be geared

towards today’s job requirements.

There are good paying jobs going for the

asking across Vermont today. Employers that

I have spoken with tell me that those jobs are

not being filled because the applicants are not

meeting the necessary job requirements.

Increasing the minimum wage to $15.00

per hour is a lofty goal, but it does not solve

the problem. Increasing the minimum wage

can stifle job growth, and even limit employers’

ability to create new jobs.

Better education, the right training and retraining

of the workforce for today’s and

tomorrow’s jobs will help to ensure a minimum

wage greater than $15.00 per hour.

Artist Mary Azarian to Serve as

CVHHH Fall Campaign Chair

Central Vermont

Home Health &

Hospice is thrilled to

welcome renowned

artist and Calais resident

Mary Azarian as

the Honorary Chair of

its Fall Solicitation.

Mary first encountered

CVHHH over 20 years

ago, when her mother, who had recently

moved to Vermont, needed care at home after

breaking her knee and, then, her hip.

Ultimately, Mary’s mother received the support

of CVHHH’s Hospice team after having

a stroke. Mary’s mother was brought home,

Funding Available for Organizations and Programs that

Support Career Pathways for VT Women and Girls

Funding is now available from the Vermont

Women’s Fund at the Vermont Community

Foundation for new or existing projects, programs,

and efforts that support viable career

pathways and career prospects for Vermont

women and girls.

The Vermont Women’s Fund was established

in 1994 as an enduring resource to

support women and girls in the state. It has

granted more than $2 million in support of its

mission and remains the largest philanthropic

resource dedicated exclusively to Vermont

women and girls. The primary initiative of the

Fund is Change the Story, a partnership with

the Vermont Commission on Women and

Vermont Works for Women that seeks to fasttrack

women’s economic security in

Vermont.

In an effort to achieve a deeper and more

strategic impact with its funding dollars, the

Vermont Women’s Fund will focus its 2018

grantmaking on an area highlighted by

• • •

friends.

In her letter to Friends of CVHHH, which

was mailed in November to over 4,000 individuals,

Mary notes that almost everyone in

the central Vermont community is touched in

some way by CVHHH and is always appreciative.

She concludes, “One thing hasn’t

changed since I moved to Vermont 55 years

ago and that’s the kindness, generosity, and

tolerance of Vermonters. We are fortunate to

live in a place where community is so vibrant

and close-knit. CVHHH is an incredibly

important resource that serves the whole

community.”

critical for women’s long-term economic

security and Vermont’s economic future:

women and girls on the pathway to viable

careers. The Fund seeks proposals that make

pathways to viable careers more visible,

accessible, and affordable for young women

and girls, and/or that invest in the economic

security and career prospects of low-income

employed women workers. Proposals may

request funding for program support, for

awareness-generating activities, or to complete

33rd Annual Holiday ARC/FUN

Winter Dance with Jim Miller & Santa

this Saturday at Bethany Church

The Annual Holiday Dinner

Dance, a fun holiday event coordinated

by the Central Vermont ARC

and Families and Friends United

(FUN), will take place this

Saturday, Dec. 16, 6-9 p.m. at the

Bethany Church in Montpelier.

The “potluck affair” will start at

6 p.m. and draw members of the

ARC/FUN plus family, friends,

supervisors, supporters from other

associations, and even Santa for

the first time, will enjoy DJ music

from 7-9 p.m., including live

accordion songs from the master

of ceremony, Jim Miller.

A fabulous sound system was

donated for use by Eric Gentl of

Goodfellows Jewelry.

Miller, a Barre native, is a well

known multi-media rock musician

and producer. He has been helping

with monthly events for ARC/FUN for 32 years, and again

will have the dual role of being the DJ and MC.

“I always have the greatest feeling after this event, and I

know it’s the same for everyone else,” Miller said, who is currently

mixing over 30 years of unreleased music.

“Jim thoughtfully and successfully involves the audience in

parts of his performance and they respond with great enthusiasm,”

says Jim Lund, Executive Director of ARC.

Montpelier Native Honored as

Distinguished Leader Of The Law

Atty. Katie Mesner-Hage of the

Bridgeport, CT-based law firm Koskoff

Koskoff & Bieder has been named a

Distinguished Leader of the Law, her

firm announced.

Nominated by her peers in the legal

community and selected by an outside

panel, Mesner-Hage was awarded the

title earlier this fall by the Connecticut

Law Tribune at the publication’s annual

Professional Excellence Awards celebration in Hartford.

Along with co-counsel Josh Koskoff, who has been named

Attorney of the Year, Mesner-Hage tried a case last year that

resulted in a $25 million verdict –the highest verdict in the

state for 2016 and one of the top 100 nationwide. The case

involved a young Ansonia woman who lost her left leg below

the knee because of a misdiagnosed blood clot.

Also last year, she and Koskoff obtained the state’s third

highest verdict: over $12 million in New Haven for the suicide

of a man who was not treated properly for dependence on

his anxiety medication.

Earlier, Mesner-Hage had been recognized by the

Connecticut Law Tribune in its 2015 Personal Injury Hall of

Fame for her work with Koskoff in obtaining an $8 million

verdict against a physician who failed to diagnose and treat a

patient’s depression, resulting in his suicide.

She currently serves as co-counsel with Koskoff in representing

several Sandy Hook families in a high-profile suit

against the manufacturer, distributor, and seller of the weapon

used in the shooting.

Mesner-Hage began her career at Koskoff, Koskoff &

Bieder in 2013 as the firm’s first Theodore I. Koskoff Public

Interest Fellow and joined the firm as an associate in 2015.

She received her J.D. at Yale Law School, after attending

Macalester College in Minnesota. She is a member of the

Conn. Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association

of Justice.

Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder has offices in Bridgeport,

Danbury, and New Haven. The nationally known law firm has

achieved record verdicts for people who suffer serious personal

injuries or economic harm from medical malpractice,

violation of their civil or constitutional rights, dangerous

products, negligence, drunk drivers, corporate or governmental

abuse and commercial misconduct.

Two New Members Added to VPR’s Board of Directors

Joyce Judy of Waterbury is president of Community

College of Vermont, having previously served as dean of students

and provost of the College. She is recognized as a

statewide leader in the development of Vermont’s Dual

Enrollment Program for high school students, and she has

overseen the broad expansion of CCV’s workforce education

initiatives, including the Governor’s Career Ready Certificate

program.

Willemien Dingemans Miller of Norwich is a trusts and

estates attorney with the law firm of Downs, Rachlin and

Martin. She has served on boards and committees of nonprofit

organizations in the Upper Valley and the Northeast

Kingdom. Willemien grew up in the Netherlands.

The board also elected two non-board members to serve on

a board committee in FY18. Pennie Beach of Vergennes is

These Spaulding High School students have received the Robert M. Burdett Memorial Award more than once!

Spaulding High School Students Receive

Robert M. Burdett Memorial Award

Spaulding High School has a unique award: the Robert M.

Burdett Memorial Award. While serving as assistant principal

and principal of Spaulding High School, the late Mr. Bob

Burdett was the champion of the unsung heroes within the

student body. He believed that this core of earnest, hardworking

students formed the backbone of Spaulding High School,

and that they would become, in time, the nucleus of their

communities and of our country.

To be eligible for this award, students must demonstrate, at

all times and in all activities, consistent behaviors indicative

of respect, accountability, and effort. These students, who, by

their regular attendance, friendly demeanor, cooperative

behavior, and earnest desire to do their best, contribute to the

positive atmosphere of the school. They are then recognized

at a quarterly Principal’s Breakfast.

Spaulding High School is proud to announce that the following

students are the recipients of the Robert Burdett Award

for the first quarter of this year:

1986) titled Georgia O’Keeffe:

Art, Image, Style.

Leaving from four locations

in Vermont (Burlington,

Jeffersonville, Montpelier, and White River Junction) on

Tuesday, March 27, the bus will depart in the morning, with

Bryan Gallery Executive Director Mickey Myers providing

an orientation to O’Keeffe’s artwork on route. Upon arrival in

Salem, Massachusetts, lunch will be served at the iconic

Hawthorne Hotel, after which travelers will walk over to the

Peabody Essex Museum.

Private guides will lead the participants through the exhibition,

the first exhibition to explore the art, image and personal

style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s

understated and carefully designed garments, many never

before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs of her,

and paintings by her, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist

aesthetic and distinctive self-styling.

For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona,

defied labels and carved out a truly progressive, independent

life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy

— compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation,

and restrained color palettes — continues to capture the

popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers

of our day. Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, this

multi-disciplinary exhibition is the first to focus on the relationship

between O’Keeffe’s art and her personal style,

including how she was captured on film by the outstanding

photographers of her day (including Ansel Adams and

O’Keeffe’s husband, Alfred Stiglitz.)

There will be time to explore the exhibition after the tour,

and to visit other parts of the museum, including the Peabody

Essex Museum’s famed Chinese House: Yin Yu Tang. The

return trip to Vermont will have participants home in the evening.

Goodspeed and Bach Trip Director Deb Flanders will manage

the trip which includes entrance to the Peabody Essex

Museum, lunch at historic Hawthorne Hotel: appetizer,

entrée, dessert and coffee; private guided tour of the exhibition;

ticket entrance to the entire museum; tour host and tour

manager, luxury motor coach transportation with departures

from Burlington and Jeffersonville; gratuity for bus driver and

trip manager.

For those interested in giving this trip as a gift, Bryan

Memorial Gallery has specifically designed gift certificates

available. To register, go on line to www.bryangallery.org/

events by February 1. Bryan Memorial Gallery is at 180 Main

Street, Jeffersonville, VT., 802-644-5100.

Vermont State Board of Education Adopts

Updated Technology Standards for Students

At its November meeting, the Vermont State Board of

Education unanimously adopted the International Standards

for Technology Education (ISTE) Standards for student learning.

The adoption of this framework is aligned with the state’s

Education Quality Standards (EQS). These standards outline

what Vermont students should know and be able to do with

respect to information technology, and will guide and inform

the work of our schools as they prepare students for college

and careers that have been dramatically transformed by information

technology.

These new and updated ISTE standards replace outdated

standards, and will help bring our education in line with innovations

and best practice in use of information technologies in

schools.

The State Board of Education has been updating our

adopted standards to be more in line with the requirements of

proficiency-based graduation,” said State Board of Education

Chair Krista Huling. “The ISTE student standards will help

assist all educators in the goal of how to deliver and assess

progress through various academic areas. These standards

also strengthen Vermont’s commitment to citizenship in the

digital age at a time when civic engagement at all levels are

key to strengthening our democracy.”

The ISTE Standards are in line with Vermont’s longstanding

emphasis on not just learning skills, but preparing students

to apply those skills in novel and purposeful ways.

Vermont has long been committed to providing its students

with the most current innovations in technology and practices

regarding classroom and school level technology use.

“In a 21st Century information economy, what will matter

most is what students can do with what they know,” said

Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe. In their emphasis

on student-directed learning and student application of information

technology skills, the new ISTE standards will support

the efforts of educators to ensure learning is a student-driven

• • •

• • •

process.

The ISTE student standards focus on areas that will help

prepare today’s learners for the evolving technological landscape

including teaching digital citizenship, understanding

how to be a computational thinker and using digital tools to

collaborate with others locally and globally.

Educators across the state understand how the broader concepts

around the ISTE student technology standards can be

taught in the classroom, as well as the real-world implications

that help prepare students. For example, in light of the recent

natural disasters and the refugee crisis, Brattleboro Area

Middle School students worked with a local architecture and

engineering firm on a project that challenged students to consider

how they would design safe and sustainable shelters for

displaced families to live. Students used the design thinking

process to imagine, plan and create their projects to address

issues such as flooding, access to safe drinking water, excessive

heat and safety.

“Our schools have been working hard to ensure all our

students have access not just to technology, but to how technology

is used in careers and post-secondary education.

Success in the 21st Century will require our students to negotiate

not just the physical world, but a digital world. The ISTE

Standards provide a road map our educators can use to prepare

our children for that world.” Secretary Holcombe said.

“This is particularly important in some of our more rural

areas, where the future of our communities may depend on

digital access to support economic development.”

Vermont is one of several states and school districts to formalize

use of the ISTE Standards including the states of

Connecticut and Texas, and Los Angeles Unified School

District. Many others are currently working on adoption and

are expected to endorse or adopt the ISTE Standards in the

coming months.

Douglas E. Hull

Doug Hull passed on

November 18th from complications

with cancer and a life long

struggle with diabetes. He died

peacefully with his life partner and

love, Catherine M. Reed, at his side,

and after saying farewell to many of

his close friends. Born in Windsor

Vermont, he grew up the son of

Douglas H. Hull and Hilda Jock. His

early years were marked with just

enough deprivation to instill in him

an indomitable work ethic and

resourceful spirit that would serve

him well throughout his life. To list

just a few significant markers in his

life: Being a ROTC officer from

Northeastern University in Boston,

Massachusetts during Vietnam, he

served in the 41st signal Battalion during 1965 and

1966. Never conflicted about the war or his role, he

always possessed a quiet but fierce patriotism that was

never jingoistic. His patriotism was only matched by

his interest in trying to talk with and meet the other,

even if they had no common language. Both his children

can remember standing to one side, a bit embarrassed

as he carried on a jovial and largely one way

conversation with some shopkeeper or passer-by in

whatever country he was in. Passing the CPA exam on

the first try, he started his own practice in 1973. He

didn’t care too much about numbers -- the people he

was able and meet and talk to about their lives was the

real motivation. If people needed his help but couldn’t

pay, there was always other accommodations. He often

joked that he was happy to do taxes for friends in return

for a nice dinner and good company. He and Cathy

adopted 3 children, Kim died in infancy, but Lyn Soon

and Yang grew and now live in North Carolina and

Illinois, respectively. He and Cathy also hosted Gii

Sirmaskasem Grimes, an exchange student from

Thailand. She still calls him Dad, and lives and works

in Tokyo for the US State department. His family is

also survived by his brother Stephen Hull of South

Royalton. Doug also made it to Grandfather hood with

the arrival of WooJoo, Yang’s child, adopted from

Korea, just as Yang was 41 years earlier. He found this

new status deeply enjoyable and satisfying, constantly

amazed at how much energy a 3-year-old can muster.

Always a prolific writer, Doug filled his retirement

writing two books, drafts of others, and innumerable

letters. He also edited and assisted other writing projects

like the history of Worcester, VT, written by J.

David Book. Throughout everything, he travelled alongside

Cathy. They just made it past the 50 year mark this

The family of BARB AICHER

ROULEAU is honored to have

shared our lives with one of the

most amazing and accomplished

members of our community.

Barb entered the field of nursing

at the University of Vermont and

in 1990, obtained her B.S. in nursing and

health education. While working as a critical

care nurse in Boston, and Saratoga, she continued

her studies and obtained a master’s in

nursing education from Sage Graduate School.

She applied her clinical experience to IDX

Systems’ first online patient record. When

UVM created their first certificate program

for nurse practitioners, she jumped at the

opportunity and re-entered the clinical world.

After providing care to our community, she

was again asked to re-enter the world of

health care software; this time the focus was

on preventive health. Barb was one of the first

two to graduate and earn the title of Doctor of

Nursing Practice. Working closely with her

peers in the UVM College of Nursing, her

vision and purpose became more defined. She

then became an assistant professor and joined

a team of dedicated nurse practitioners that

would capture national interest and admiration

as they created the first university-owned

family practice with a mission to teach while

providing care. Constantly leading by example,

she taught advanced nursing classes while

managing a full patient load. She shaped the

school nursing position at Christ The King

School, served on the Green Mountain Health

Care Board, volunteered for her children’s

soccer programs and Rice Stunt Night. The

greatest source of pride for Barb has always

been her family; husband Ray and children

Christian, Evan and Ali.

EMILIENNE ROY, 96, of

Barre, and more recently from

Surprise, AZ, passed away Dec.

3, 2017. Born in St. Gedeon,

Canada, on Oct. 4, 1921, she

was the daughter of Athanase

and Alma Moisan. She attended

school there. She and her family moved from

Canada to VT in November 1949 where they

settled on the family farm in Berlin. Mrs. Roy

was a homemaker and helped operate the family

farm for many years. She loved working in

her vegetable garden and flower garden. She

was married to Henry Louis Roy on Aug. 16,

1941. Mr. Roy passed away Sept. 17, 1966.

She later married Gedeon Roy on Aug. 2,

1969. Mr. Roy passed away on Dec. 30, 1996.

Vermont’s Fair & Impartial Policing

Policy Needs to Uphold the Values

and Laws that Protect ALL People

Dear Editor,

As members of the central Vermont chapter of Showing Up

for Racial Justice, we want to state boldly that Act 54 and its

provision to revisit the details of Vermont’s Fair and Impartial

Policing Policy needs to uphold the values and laws that protect

ALL people who come in contact with the criminal justice

system, regardless of race or immigration status. So far,

the collaborative process with the Vermont Criminal Justice

Training Council between stakeholders and policy writers has

had some good results — protections of privacy and mandates

for training and accountability, to name a few.

BUT, still there is more we need to do to assure things like

the open sharing of information about immigration status is

not permitted. Why? Because the result will be appeals to

racial profiling, harassment of new Americans, and ineffective

policing where victims and witnesses who are not protected

from deportation simply will not come forward.

Immigration and customs officials should not have access to

persons held in state jails, nor folks in witness protection.

And racial profiling of any type should not be practiced.

Sign the petition calling on the Criminal Justice Training

Council to approve the version of the Fair and Impartial

Policing Policy (FIPP) that stakeholders and community

members are calling for before their meeting on December

12th. To access the petition online, visit racialjusticereformomnibusbillvt.wordpress.com/.

All Vermonters, regardless of race or immigration status,

deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Sincerely,

Victoria Pearson & Claire Wheeler

Join Us on National Wreaths Across

America Day

Dear Editor,

Fellow residents of Bennington and the surrounding area,

we are asking you to Join us on National Wreaths Across

America Day; December 16 at 1200 at the Vermont Veterans’

Home on 325 North Street in Bennington. Each December on

National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to

Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating

wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as

well as over 1,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at

sea, and abroad. We at the Vermont Veterans’ Home are honored

to participate in this national event as one of the locations.

Last year the day was cold, windy, and snowing, yet as

hardy Vermonters, you attended and participated in honoring

those who had served our great nation. Observing all who

were present lay a wreath, call out the Veteran’s name, and

salute each time was a memory I shall always carry with

me.

If you are a leader of a youth organization, please consider

attending this event with your group. This is a tremendous

opportunity to Remember, Honor, and Teach about our heritage

and heroes. These graves contain warriors from the

Civil War to current conflicts. Our earliest interments contain

warriors who marched south into the unknown so that others

may be free.

Please bring family and friends to participate in this year’s

event. It is vitally important for our children to understand

and honor our departed Veterans on this day. The Ceremony

itself is short, but meaningful. Its purpose is not to “decorate

graves”, but to commemorate their sacrifice and dedication to

these United States and to the cause of Freedom.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Semper Fidelis

Guest Opinion:

We Must Unite Against Abuse

By Lt. Governor David Zuckerman

Public revelations of sexual assault and misconduct

against women and children, such as those making

headlines over the few months, are deeply disturbing.

How can anyone think such actions are okay? My hope is that

we are leaving behind a time of impunity for abusers, who

believed their actions would never be reported or given

proper consideration.

These assaults have torn the fabric of our society, robbed

many of their dignity and human potential, and left members

of our community broken and suffering in silence. As a society,

we have accepted a slippery slope of insulting speech and

behavior, especially toward women, thus encouraging and

abetting sexual bullying, harassment and assault. Unless we

acknowledge the depth of the problem and massive social

wrongdoing, we won’t move forward.

As a husband and father, I shudder at the experiences my

wife has had, and those my daughter may experience. Our

society can and must do better.

I honor and support the thousands of women who have

bravely raised awareness about the pervasiveness of assault

and abuse by coming forward publicly and/or with the

#MeToo. Responsibility for these horrific acts lies squarely

on the shoulders of the abusers, not the victims. The perpetrators

must admit their guilt, apologize and - to the fullest extent

of the law - face the consequences. The rest of us, who

actively or passively turned a blind eye, can no longer remain

silent or inactive. Together we must create a world where

everyone is safe and free from victimization and abuse. Let’s

build a society where all people are treated fairly, with respect

and dignity.

Women should be trusted, listened to, and respected as

equals. Unfortunately, there are many areas where they are

not equal in our society. In Vermont, women earn 84 cents for

Netflix Original, Jim and Andy:

The Great Beyond

HHHH

every dollar earned by their male counterpart and 43% of

women working full-time do not make enough to cover their

basic living expenses. Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour

would dramatically impact women since they tend to be more

highly concentrated in lower-wage jobs. Imagine being

abused at work but staying for fear of losing health benefits

for yourself and your family; a universal health care system

would address this by allowing employees mobility. Continued

investments in quality affordable housing means more options

for those who need to relocate to distance themselves from

abusive relationships. Innovative and progressive legislation

can go a long way in eliminating the prevalence of power

dynamics that enable abuse to occur. This is yet one more

reason why we must continue the fight for equal pay, universal

healthcare, affordable housing and childcare, and other

aspects of economic justice.

We cannot pretend Vermont is free from discrimination or

abuse. We must have honest and open dialogue about these

issues. As a Senator, I served on the Sexual Harassment Panel.

I worked to clarify rules and procedures, to ensure any harassment

allegations were address quickly and efficiently, while

ensuring due process and appropriate punishment for perpetrators.

As President of the Senate I will ensure decorum and

respect prevail in the Senate Chamber. I will not tolerate any

inappropriate actions or remarks between Senators, from the

press, lobbyists, or visitors. I will encourage lively discourse,

proper consideration of different perspectives, and fact-based

arguments. All elected officials serve at the will of the people

and I believe we should do justice to this honor. You should

be watchful and hold us to the highest standards. Our discourse

and the laws emanating from our Chamber set the tone

for what we want our society to be.

When I watch something where an actor is playing

an insane character, I wonder to myself: is the actor

truly crazy? Did he start off sane and lose his

mind for the role?

The craziest TV character I can think of is Claire Danes’s

Carrie Mathison in “Homeland.” When she’s not completely

devoted to her dangerous job, she goes home and becomes

an immediate danger to herself with booze and pills.

It is possible that Claire Danes is simply a terrific actress

who can turn it on and off at will. But I’ll bet no one who

watched “Homeland” has ever taken a chance and allowed

Ms. Danes to babysit their children.

When it comes to entertainers acting insane, Andy Kaufman

is the all-time champion. Kaufman became a celebrity

in the late 70s with his goofy appearances on Saturday

Night Live and his lovable immigrant character on the sitcom

“Taxi.”

For his own artistic vision and amusement, Andy Kaufman

decided to take the love America had for him and turn

it into hate.

When he would appear on a talk show, Kaufman would

come out wearing a one-piece wresting unitard. He would

stand in the middle of a makeshift wresting ring and go on

a chauvinist rant. Finally, a woman in the audience would

become so furious that she was eager to wrestle him.

Andy Kaufman would pin the woman, dance around

proudly, hold a golden belt above his head, and gloat that he

was the World Intergender Wrestling Champion.

Was he a brave performance artist or was he actually insane?

No one knows. But I assure you no one ever allowed

Mr. Kaufman to babysit their children.

Most people found Andy Kaufman’s antics weird and

troubling. Jim Carrey thought he was amazing.

In 1999, at the height of his popularity, Carrey successfully

lobbied to win the role of Andy Kaufman in the biopic

“Man in the Moon.”

And Jim Carrey didn’t play Andy Kaufman, he became

him. For four months, Carrey remained in character, day

and night. Half of the documentary “Jim and Andy” shows

us behind the scenes video of Jim Carrey - as Andy Kaufman

- causing mischief and making life uncomfortable for

everyone around him.

But the star of this film isn’t crazy 1999 Jim Carrey: it’s

super crazy 2017 Jim Carrey.

Bearded, haggard, and soft-spoken, Jim Carrey looks

and sounds like a homeless New Age poet.

Sometimes he’s smart, sometimes he’s wise, often he’s

off in space. It’s as if he’s having a conversation at the psychiatrist’s

office but he wrongly thinks he’s the doctor.

Carrey describes the liberating experience of getting to

live outside himself and be a jerk for a whole summer. Then

he describes the horror and confusion of leaving the character

and not remembering who Jim Carrey is.

“Jim and Andy” powerfully underscores the message

that becoming a celebrity is a terrible disaster for your identity,

self-worth, and happiness.

There is no way of knowing whether becoming a Method

Actor and being Andy Kaufman broke Jim Carrey’s brain

or if he was messed up already.

All I know is no one is hiring Jim Carrey to babysit their

kids. Man, I wouldn’t even trust him to come over and feed

my cats for a weekend.

Health Officials: The Time to Get Your Flu Shot is Now

Vermont health officials say we may be in for a rough flu

season, and are advising people to get their flu shot to protect

both themselves as well as others, such as children too young

to be vaccinated.

“Especially now, during the holiday season of crowds and

gatherings of friends and family, everyone older than 6

months should get a flu shot,” said Vermont Health

Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. “Flu viruses are notoriously

unpredictable, but from the information I’ve received,

all indications point to a possibly severe flu season in

Vermont.”

Flu is already widespread in several states. According to the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, several strains of

influenza virus are in circulation. The dominant flu virus

strain is H3N2, which can result in more severe illnesses than

other strains. While this year’s vaccine works well against

many of the flu virus strains out there, recent studies indicate

the vaccine is less effective against the H3N2 strain. Health

officials stress that an annual flu shot can still help lessen the

severity of illness, and for people at high risk of complications

from flu, it can be a life saver. Those at high-risk include:

pregnant women, young children, adults 50 years and older,

and people with chronic health conditions.

For older adults – especially those with chronic respiratory

conditions – complications from flu often lead to a sharp

increase in hospitalizations and potentially serious illness,

including pneumonia and bronchitis. Such infections can dramatically

increase the risk of heart attack and stroke for

months after the illness has cleared.

“Human immune defenses become weaker with age, which

places older people at greater risk of severe illness,” explained

Dr. Levine. He encourages people age 65 and older to talk

with their doctor about getting one of the vaccines designed to

give older people a better immune response, and therefore,

better protection against flu.

Blood Donation Opportunities

The best gifts can’t be bought in a store. The American Red

Cross urges eligible donors to give more life by giving blood

this December.

Alison Wissen knows the power of blood donations. She

received 22 units of blood products after experiencing complications

during childbirth. “I truly owe my life to blood

donors,” she said. “Even the skilled hands of my surgeons

could not have saved me without the blood.” Because of

blood and platelet donors, Wissen will celebrate the holidays

with her three children and husband.

In December, donations decline but the needs of patients

remain steady. During the holiday season, set aside an hour to

give the most important gift – give blood and give more life.

To encourage donations, all those who come to give blood or

platelets Dec. 21, 2017, through Jan. 7, 2018, will receive a

long-sleeved Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

Make an appointment to give blood by downloading the

free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org

or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

How to donate blood

Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor

App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS

(1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information.

All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply

for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two

other forms of identification are required at check-in.

Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with

parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least

110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible

to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18

years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and

weight requirements.

Blood and platelet donors can save time at their next donation

by using RapidPass® to complete their pre-donation

reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of

their donation, from a computer or mobile device. To get

started and learn more, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and

follow the instructions on the site.

Reminds Vermonters of Its High-Ranking

Medicare Part D Drug Plan

BCBSVT, in a joint venture with three

other New England Blue plans, contracts with

the federal government to offer prescription

drug coverage, called Blue MedicareRxSM

(PDP). Earlier this fall, the company reported

that Blue MedicareRx (PDP) is the only individual

prescription drug plan (PDP) in

Vermont, and greater New England, to

achieve a five-star rating[i] for 2018 from the

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

(CMS). The five-star rating means the highest

possible ranking for quality, access and member

satisfaction. (See disclaimer 1.)

BCBSVT is excited to share that its Blue

MedicareRx Part D program received further

recognition as one of the Best Medicare Plans

for 2018 by U.S. News & World Report.

“We’re honored to have been named one of

the best Medicare plans for 2018. In addition

The absolute best thing you can do to prevent illness, hospitalizations

and even death from flu complications, is to get

your flu shot,” said Dr. Levine. “Even if it’s not a perfect

match, it’s very important, not just for yourself, but also to

protect those with whom you may come in contact – including

babies too young to get vaccinated and people who have

weakened immune systems. It is not an understatement to say

their lives may depend on you.”

The flu vaccine takes two weeks to become fully effective,”

said Dr. Levine. “so now is the time to get yours.”

Flu shots are available at more than 300 locations around

Vermont. To find a location near you to get the flu vaccine, go

to healthvermont.gov/flu or dial 2-1-1.

“I love working with people of all ages, especially in family

groups, to make them healthier and happier,” he said.

“This includes educating and partnering with patients, and

giving each person the time they need to achieve these

goals.”

When not working Dr. LoPresti enjoys gardening (last year

he grew 14 different vegetables in his 35x 30 foot garden),

reading, and traveling. This year his family travelled to

Alaska, achieving their goal to visit all fifty states.

He is now seeing patients five days a week at Gifford

Primary Care. Call 728-2445 to schedule an appointment.

to our achievement of being the only five-star

individual prescription drug plan in Vermont,

we believe this acknowledgement from the

U.S. News & World Report further highlights

the excellent coverage, access and overall

experience that our plans offer,” says

Catherine Hamilton, BCBSVT’s vice president

of consumer services and planning.

The U.S. News & World Report uses the

government’s five-star plan ratings and

applies a methodology averaging each company’s

plans within a state and using a fivestar

rating system. Companies averaging 4.5

stars or higher are featured on their list.

BCBSVT received a five-star ranking.

Fear of Santa

Parents have asked me

how to prevent their child

fearing Santa when they

visit him in the weeks

ahead. Let me try to put the

“ho, ho, hos” in those fearful

“woe, woe, woes.”

Let’s face it: to a small

child, Santa Claus can be

overwhelming. Maybe it’s

his size, his booming voice,

his gloves, his bright red suit and big white beard… It may

be that he is simply a stranger. Sitting on a stranger’s lap

is not something any child should be eager to do. So for a

small child, visiting Santa can be quite scary.

Therefore the name of the game is to help your child

overcome the fear with practice, practice, and more practice.

First, ask your child to talk about why they are is afraid

of Santa. Talk positively about Santa and the good things

he does before you go to meet him. If you celebrate

Christmas, have some Santa decorations up so your child

can get used to what he looks like.

Is your child is old enough to tell you what they want

from Santa for Christmas? If so, that can give them something

to talk about when they meet the big guy.

A good idea is to have your child watch other children

their age and size meet Santa. When your child sees those

children smiling and enjoying their visit, your child may

be ready to try as well. Another idea is for you to go first

and get a picture with Santa. That may be all it takes.

If your child is just not ready, don’t force it. Instead,

respect your child’s fear, and acknowledge that it is hard

to meet someone new. Reassure your child that they are

safe around Santa. And remind them that you will be

there, too.

It’s not a good idea to do anything that would ruin the

magic that is Santa at this young age. Even if you think it

will make things easier in meeting him, hold back.

If your child overcomes the fear and has a successful

visit with Santa, praise them. If not, don’t add to the stress

by criticizing them or denying that their fear exists.

Hopefully tips like these will not be scary when it

comes to helping your child not fear a visit with Santa.

YOU MATTER MORE | SHOP LOCALLY

Shop where you’re truly valued

There’s one fi nal reason to spend your

money locally: you matter more — a lot

more — to local businesses than you do

to those out-of-town stores.

When you do your shopping closer to home, you’re not just buying

stuff. You’re interacting with your friends, your neighbors and your

co-workers — the very people who make up the fabric of your community.

YOU’RE ALSO SOMETHING SPECIAL.

By supporting local businesses, you’re not just a tiny number on a

profit-and-loss sheet, but someone who plays an integral role in the

success of your city and your local economy. Whatever you purchase

locally, no matter how small, can make a big difference to momand-pop

merchants who are trying to succeed in business, pay their

employees and improve their community.

DEALING WITH ‘THE BOSS’

Instead of being ambushed by a pushy salesperson, the shopper at a

small, local store is instead greeted by the jovial owner and sometimes

by their friendly dog or cat, as well.

The shopping experience itself can be a lot of fun. You get to

interact more with the “boss” at small mom-and-pop shops, so you’re

treated like a real person, rather than cattle herded through a chute.

They encourage the shopper to take their time and meander through

the store. While they are in business to earn money, they generally

will not pressure the shopper to buy a lot of extra stuff or try to force

them to sign up for a store credit card.

Local shops also frequently go that extra mile for their customers

by doing things like gift wrapping and providing coffee or donuts at

no additional charge.

HOMETOWN FEELING

Shopping in the local stores often provides an opportunity for

people to run into old friends or neighbors that they have not seen

in a while. They can mingle on the streets and catch up on the local

gossip. The store owners get to know their customers, as well. It is a

family atmosphere.

In other words, you’re not just a nameless customer. You matter.

You’re someone from church, someone from the school PTA, or

someone who works in the office down the street.

To encourage shoppers to patronize the local stores, many towns

will make street parking free and put on events that are sure to draw a

crowd. It’s part of this unique feeling that makes shopping so enjoyable

when you spend your time and money close to home.

each other.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine (1944)

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas,

Let your heart be light,

Next year all our troubles will be out of sight.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas,

Make the Yuletide gay.

Next year all our troubles will be out of sight.

Once again as in olden days,

Happy golden days of yore.

Faithful friends who are near to us

Will be dear to us once more.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Some day soon we all will be together,

If the fates allow,

Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow,

And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas now!

The Story Behind the Song

Songwriters Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine wrote the classic

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!” for Judy

Garland’s part in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s 1944 movie, Meet

Me in St. Louis - a story about a young family struggling with

the consequences having to move from Missouri to New York

City.

Hugh Martin explained that Have Yourself a Merry Little

Christmas “began with the melody, a little spiritual-like tune

that I liked but couldn’t make work, so I played with it for two

or three days, then gave up and threw it in the wastebasket.”

Fortunately, Hugh’s friend and fellow songwriter Ralph

had also heard the tune and told Hugh it was too good to throw

away. “We dug around the wastebasket and found it,“ Ralph

recalled. “Thank the Lord we found it!.”

The two were working on the music for Meet Me in St.

Louis, a four season script, starring a young Judy Garland – set

against the background of the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.

With the melody saved, the two men started working on the

words for Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, for the

Christmas scene, however Judy found the first draft was too

sad and asked for it to be revised..

The MGM producer, Arthur Freed insisted, “No, no - it’s a

sad scene, but we want sort of an upbeat song, which will

make it even sadder if Judy’s smiling through her tears,” Hugh

explained, we tried to meet a compromise, “then finished the

lyrics you know from the movie.”

Some of Hugh’s original lyrics, which had been more consistent

with the movie’s plot of the family moving away, were

mercifully lost to the revision as a result of Judy’s protests that

Wed. & Thurs. at 6:35

(Margarete O’Brien & Judy Garland – Meet Me in St. Louis - MGM, 1944)

singing the original to her little sister Tootie, played by 7-year

old Margarete O’Brien, would make her (Garland) “sound like

a monster.” The original lyrics are said to have included:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

It may be your last,

Next year we may all be living in the past.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Pop that champagne cork,

Next year we may all be living in New York.

No good times like the olden days,

Happy golden days of yore,

Faithful friends who were dear to us,

Will be near to us no more.

But at least we all will be together,

If the Lord allows,

From now on, we’ll have to muddle through somehow,

So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

If the 1944 movie lyrics, in the first column, seem a little

different from those you remember, it is probably because in

1957; Frank Sinatra requested Hugh Martin to revise the song

asking him if he “could jolly up that song a little for me ?”

Hugh made several minor alterations, changing the song’s

focus to a celebration of present happiness, rather than

anticipation of better times ahead; and mercifully changing

the line “Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow”

to “So hang a shining star upon the highest bough.” In later

years, Judy Garland would perform the song using the revised

lyrics.

So now you know the story and the fact that if a young Judy

Garland hadn’t been so persistent, the song would never have

become one of our holiday traditions.

“So Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Now!”

Smelling-Salt Bottle

Smelling salts have been used to revive someone

who is feeling faint or has lost consciousness since

the days of the Romans. But it was not until the 18th

century that smelling-salt holders became fashionable.

Smelling salts (ammonium carbonate and

water) release an ammonia gas that irritates the

inside of the nose and causes rapid breathing. This

means more oxygen is inhaled. Ammonia was made

from shaved deer horns in ancient times and often

was called “spirit of hartshorn.” Victorians often

used perfume with the smelling salts.

The smelling-salt holder was opened and waved

near the nose of the troubled patient. Many of the

bottles were curved. Some were made of decorated

metal and worn as part of a necklace. Some just

looked like small saltshakers. A 2 5/8-inch marbleized

glass “shaker” made of light blue and milk

glass with a threaded cap sold for $293 at a Norman

Heckler sale in Connecticut. It probably was made

in Boston about 1850.

display in our church. I believe it has some value

and should be protected, if only for the historic

value of the Kaiser personally giving it to the

church. I would appreciate any information you can

give me about the Bible.

A: Most old Bibles aren’t worth a lot of money, but

Kaiser Wilhelm’s signature could make it very valuable.

It would have to be seen by an expert to

authenticate the signature. Wilhelm II (1859-1941)

was Germany’s last Kaiser. He reigned from 1881

to 1918, when he abdicated and left Germany. If the

church is going to display the Bible publicly, you

may want to get an idea of its value for insurance

purposes. If the book has a leather cover, it should

not be displayed on a wood surface unless the surface

is covered by acid-free paper. Wood is acidic

and can damage leather. The pages should not be

left open and exposed to light or they will discolor.

Special archival display cases are available that

allow the book to remain open, but they are very

pricey. If an autograph expert determines the book

is not very valuable, it can be kept on display as

long as it isn’t exposed to light for long periods of

time.

Contemporary American Pottery 1960s to Present,” available

MOLLY

Molly was found as a stray, and as soon as she

realized she was safe and warm, she delivered

a litter of puppies! She took wonderful care of

her babies while in one of our foster homes, they

have all been adopted, and now it's Molly's turn!

She loves attention, hugs, and petting. She is eager

to please, food motivated, walks well on a

leash, and is house trained. In her foster home,

she chased their cats and chickens, and was not

happy about meeting other dogs, so she would

probably do best as the only animal in the home.

It would be great if she could have a fenced-in

yard to keep her safe, and give her space to hang out. She feels comforted by

having a crate or other spot where she can “nest.” She loves her walks, but is also

happy sleeping by the fire. Mostly she just wants a family to love.

The Best Gift You Can Give Your Pet

DEAR PAW’S CORNER:

I read your column about a

person who did not vaccinate

their house cats, and

after one of them got out,

lost all of them to feline

leukemia. I can relate to

this person. I only have

one cat, and I thought, for

a while, that I could get

away without vaccinating

her. Fortunately, a friend

convinced me otherwise.

It turns out that it doesn’t take much to protect my baby

when she depends on me to take care of her. I’ve never

gone without just to pay for “Racquel’s” vaccinations, and

in turn, she is a healthy cat who brings so much companionship

to my life. Please tell your readers not to skip this

important annual appointment.

-- Donna in Sioux Falls, South Dakota

DEAR DONNA: You told them, and I thank you.

Vaccinating indoor pets can seem like a pricey extravagance,

but it pales in comparison to the cost of treating the

diseases that they can contract if they’re not vaccinated.

To reduce the annual cost, check around for discounted

shot clinics. These are usually held on specific dates and

places -- pet supply stores, public buildings or participating

veterinary clinics. However, these clinics often don’t

advertise extensively due to costs, so you may need to

search a bit. Contact your city or county government to see

if any clinics are being held nearby, or stop in to major pet

supply retailers like Petco, which often sponsor shot clinics.

If not, their workers often know about pet health clinics

nearby.

These clinics offer required vaccinations and licenses, and

sometimes have microchipping and a basic health exam

available at a low fixed price per pet.

Send your questions, comments and tips to ask@

How to find great gifts for the family handyman

For those people who don’t know a

box cutter from a box saw, shopping

for men and women who like to get

their hands dirty around the house

can be a diffi cult task. Home improvement

projects are complex undertakings that often

involve the use of complex tools, and novices

may be lost in the proverbial woods as they

look for gifts for their loved ones who can’t

wait to swing hammers around the house.

Though there’s always an element of risk when shopping

for gifts for loved ones, the following hints might help shoppers

with no knowledge of home improvement projects find

gifts that will please their favorite handyman.

• Take inventory of his or her existing tools. When shopping

for the DIY enthusiast in your family, try to take inventory

of his or her tool chest before beginning your search. Make

note of any tools that look new, checking those off your

shopping list, and any that look like they need replacing.

Use your phone to photograph any unfamiliar tools that you

might want to replace so you know what to look for when

visiting the hardware store.

• Think of what your relative likes to do most. The family

handyman may have a particular area of home improvement

expertise or something he or she is especially passionate

about. Does your loved one prefer to work in the garden? Is

he into woodworking and making decorative items for the

house? Think of what he or she likes to do most and then

look for something that will make that hobby more enjoyable.

While multipurpose tools might make for welcome

gifts, something more specific to his or her particular passion

may make an even better gift.

• Think outside the (tool)box. While new tools might make a

handyman’s day, they are not the only items that make great

DIY gifts. Consider enrolling your loved one in an advanced

gift a magazine subscription so he or she can stay abreast of

the latest DIY trends and topics. Such gifts are great options

for shoppers hesitant to purchase potentially costly tools that

may or may not be hits with their relatives.

• Speak with a professional. If you can’t access your loved

one’s workshop or simply don’t know what he or she might

want, ask a local contractor for gift recommendations. For

example, a carpenter might know just what will elicit a smile

from woodworking enthusiasts, while landscapers might be

able to suggest items for gardening or lawn care enthusiasts.

Advancements are always being made in the home improvement

industry, and those people who make their living in

that industry might be great resources as you try to find the

go-to gift for your loved one.

Finding a gift for the family handyman might be difficult

for shoppers with no DIY experience of their own. But a

little forethought and perhaps some professional assistance

can be just what shoppers need to find gifts their loved ones

will cherish for years to come.

Allen Lumber Re-Ups with Thunder Road Street Stock Division

Thunder Road officials

announced today that Allen

Lumber Company has signed

a multi-year agreement to

return as the title sponsor for

the track’s Street Stock class.

The upcoming 2018 season

will be the 26th consecutive

year that the Vermont-based

company has been associated

with the Street Stocks.

Allen Lumber Company is

one of the longest-running

continuous entitlement sponsors

at Thunder Road. They

began their sponsorship of

the Street Stocks in 1989

when it was an eight-cylinder

division. After a one-year

association with the Flying

Tigers in 1992, they resumed

their partnership with the

Street Stocks in 1993 when it became a four-cylinder class.

For many years, the Allen Lumber Street Stocks have been

one of the most popular entry-level divisions in New England.

The division is coming off a 2017 season that featured a fourway

championship battle entering the final event and a large

influx of drivers are anticipated from the Burnett Scrap Metals

Road Warrior class for 2018.

“Allen Lumber Company is proud to have been the sponsor

of the Street Stocks at Thunder Road for the past 25 years,”

Allen Lumber Treasurer Burnie Allen said. “Allen Lumber

Allen Lumber Company has been a supporter of the Thunder Road Street Stocks since 1993 and will

return in 2018 after signing a new agreement. Photo courtesy of Alan Ward.

appreciates the ongoing patronage of both the drivers and the

fans.”

Allen Lumber is a fifth-generation building supply company

with four Vermont locations in Barre, Montpelier,

Waitsfield, and St. Johnsbury. It was founded in 1888 by

Stillman Allen, making it one of the oldest family-owned

businesses in the state. In addition to lumber and building

materials, they sell tools, windows, doors, and kitchen and

bath fixtures. They also provide professional design consultation

for both new building construction and remodeling.

With winter weather now taking

hold, Vermonters are readying

their bird feeders. But before

residents put up their avian offerings,

Vermont Fish & Wildlife recommends

a review of the bird feeding basics.

“Birds of all species have very interesting behaviors,

shapes, and plumage, and observing them up close is a great

source of enjoyment throughout the winter months,” said

John Buck, Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s migratory bird biologist.

Buck recommends that people only feed birds during the

winter months to avoid attracting bears. Bears are very fond

of suet and bird seed, especially black oil sunflower seed.

Bringing feeders in at night doesn’t work, because bears will

still feed on seed that is spilled on the ground, and bears can

also be active during the daylight hours. Bears that are lured

by birdfeeders can become unafraid of people, which can

result in the bear needing to be put down.

While the Department suggests a general feeding window

of December 1-March 31, bears will continue to be present

when the ground is snowless and abundant fall foods are

available. Buck recommends waiting to put feeders out until

4-6 inches of snow cover occurs to be reasonably assured

bears have denned for the winter.

According to Buck, birds don’t generally need food from

backyard feeders to survive, but the activity is a great way

for people to interact with nature and if done properly, won’t

harm bird populations. Many local hardware stores sell

bird feeders and a variety of seed mixes that will appeal to

different types of birds. For an all-purpose food, black oil

sunflower seeds will attract many native bird species.

Buck also urges people to clean birdfeeders at least once a

month to prevent a buildup of harmful pathogens. Bacteria,
