Still Empowering Women, Local Gym Changes Ownership

By Katie Moritz

Marcy Rochford, the owner

of the Gym For Women in

Barre City, and her daughter,

Sami Rochford, are preparing

for change. Decked out in athletic

attire, both ladies sit side by side on

workout equipment. Sami, who is

twenty-three, will be taking over her

mother’s fifteen-year business. The

excitement from both women is palpable.

“This is a wonderful business to

be in,” Marcy explains as she sits

back in the seat of the resistant

weight machine and stares off for a

moment. “It’s so rewarding. You get

to be a part of people’s health. You see them reaching their

goals. It’s a rewarding job.” She looks over at her daughter

and smiles. “This is a great opportunity for her.”

The Gym For Women, originally a Ladies Workout

Express, opened in 2002 and remained as such for ten years.

When Marcy first started, the main floor, which was all they

had in terms of space, was a circuit. Two years later, they

expanded, taking over downstairs. They installed more equipment,

cardio machine, as well as tanning beds and a sauna.

Over time, the Gym For Women continued to expand, adding

classes, trainers, free-weights, and resistant bands.

And in 2012, Marcy decided not to renew the franchise

agreement and go independent. She changed the name and

the look and bought all new gym equipment. She also decided

to keep it a ladies-only gym.

There are not a lot of gyms in the area. Aside from Gym for

Women, Granite City Fitness, which is all classes, and

Jazzercise have been around for a while.

Marcy nods as she explains, “we all support each other.”

Until Planet Fitness opened in the Berlin Mall, the Gym for

Women had the lowest rates around for a full-service gym.

“We’ve had a lot of members who asked to be put on freeze

to try it. For 10$... we can’t compete with that.”

Marcy and Sami seem undeterred as they lean forward and

enthusiastically. Marcy: “We are small, which is not a bad

thing. We’re there. We see you and we interact with you and

we know your name. We become like,” She pauses for a

moment and looks over at her daughter and both complete the

sentence at the same time, laughing:

“Family.”

Marcy continues: “The nice thing about this community is

that there are a lot of small locally owned business. And it’s

really important now, more than ever, as big box stores come

into town, that people continue to support the local business

downtown and in surrounding areas.”

She talks fast and her passion is obvious; there is a glisten

in her eyes. She pauses for a moment.

“We can’t stay in business unless the community helps

us.”

Both Marcy and Sami are confident that they will gain

new members and that their previous members will return

from Planet Fitness for several reasons. Aside from being a

small family-run business, it remains a women-only gym.

Marcy laughs as she explains, “We’re all in the same boat.

We’ve all fought the battle of the bulge at some point.”

She speaks from personal experience. When she first

opened her gym, she heavier

than she wanted to be. Not

only has she lost that weight,

but she has kept it off.

“This place has given me

my health back.”

It’s given Marcy and her

family more than that though.

It allowed her to have control

over her own life. “It’s been a

lot of fun for me over the

years. But I worked hard. And

it gave me a lot of flexibility

to go to my kids’ games or

take them to doctor appointments.”

When Marcy first started

out as a business owner, she had other gyms throughout

Vermont. But Barre was her first and, over the years, the

most successful despite the economic difficulties of the

area. After going through a divorce with young children,

she decided to downsize and focus solely on the gym in

Barre and her family.

“It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done.”

But it is time for a change. And change, in this case, is

good. Marcy moved to New Hampshire in November and in

September she is getting married.

She is thrilled that the next generation of her family is taking

over.

Her daughter Sam basically grew up in the gym since she

was seven-years-old. Sami, like her mother, wants to keep

the same over-arching message: start a safe fitness routine

young and do that in a place free of judgement. They encourage

members to wear whatever they want, and remind them

that they too have all been though challenges.

They are, as a women-only gym, there to support each

other. Whether one is new to fitness, or a hoping to get back

into it after many years, Sami, as the new owner, will be

there to ensure the environment is conducive to growth and

encouragement.

Towards the end of the conversation, Marcy stops talking

and a silence, except for the background pulsing of a peppy

pop song, settles over the gym. Sami whispers “she’s going

to cry.”

“I just want to add,” Marcy starts, before her throat catches,

“that this has been really, really good for me. Not many

people can say they enjoy going to work. I mean, really enjoy

it. And I have. As a mom, and as a business owner, I couldn’t

be more happy and more proud that Sami is taking over.”

She looks over at her daughter, who, although smiling, is

also wipes away tears.

“I’m excited for what she will bring to this community.

Fifteen years is a long time. I also want to thank all our members

for your constant support. Without you, we wouldn’t be

here. I hope the community continues to support locally

owned businesses. Lastly, I want to thank our wonderful team

of women who work at The Gym, especially my long-time

friend and co-hort, Carol LeClair. It wouldn’t have been

nearly as much fun without you.

We’ve had our ups and downs, but we’ve always come

back. And I think the gym is important for the women in this

community.”

To be the best, it takes more

than just the training and

expertise to diagnose and

treat patients. It takes heart.

Providing quality healthcare

in a community setting is what

it’s all about, and we take

pride in making our patients

and their families feel at ease.

We’re committed to providing

the care, the service and the

respect you deserve.

Central Vermont’s First Repair Café to

Take Place January 20

Everybody has that one broken item that’s

been sitting around in the hopes that one day it

may get fixed. Here is an opportunity to do just

that. The Central Vermont Solid Waste

Management District (CVSWMD) and Onion

River Exchange (ORE) are hosting central

Vermont’s first Repair Café on January 20

from 12-4 pm at the Universalist Church, 19

Church Street, in Barre. This event is free to

the public.

Bring a broken item to be fixed by one of

the skilled volunteer “fixperts” who have

repair skills in a variety of fields, including:

hand and machine sewing (clothing, textiles,

and other fabric), gluing (ceramics, wires,

wooden objects, fabrics), zipper replacement,

computer, computer peripherals, and electronics,

electrical repair, sharpening (knives and

tools), small appliance repair, toys, small furniture,

woodworking, and household items.

We encourage participants to ask questions

and engage in the repair. You may learn a thing

or two and even want to start repairing things

yourself.

If planning to attend, prepare as much as

possible ahead of time. If you notice any parts

that may be needed to conduct the repair, please

bring them. If there is a repair manual or

instructions online to aid in the repair, bring that

too. This will help to ensure that our fixperts are

able to repair as many items as possible.

Repair Cafés are a fun way to get things

fixed while engaging in the art of repair.

waste by opting to reuse rather than throw

away. Repair Cafés also provide a space for

sharing practical repair knowledge while getting

to know your neighbors.

Participants will be allowed to have one

item fixed at a time. Those who bring more

than one item, will need to return to the end of

the line for each successive item. A greeter will

be on-hand to match each repair with the

appropriate volunteer fixer. Also, the café features

a “carry it in, carry it out” policy; if

something is unable to be fixed during the

event, participants who brought them are

responsible for taking them when they leave.

We encourage participants to get involved in

the repair; ask questions, observe the action,

and soak up some new knowledge.

While waiting to get an item fixed, peruse

the resource table featuring books and information

about repairing. True to its name, there

will be a small café area with light refreshments

available. The goal is to create a fun

community event where people can get to

know one another, share some knowledge, and

get something fixed.

Cold Weather Safety for Pets

By Erin Forbes, DVM

Vermont Veterinary Medical Association

Winter has come to Vermont and this means

colder weather, snow, and ice. And importantly,

winter’s cold means potential dangers for

our pets. Pets are susceptible to the cold, just

like people. Some pets are more at risk if they

have certain medical conditions, less body fat,

or shorter coats. Fortunately, there are many

things you can do to help make winter enjoyable

for everyone.

If possible, keep your cats and dogs inside

during cold weather: It is a common misconception

that pets are more resistant to the cold

because they have fur. Cats and dogs can get

frostbitten, become hypothermic, and get seriously

ill if they are outside for too long. Even

dogs with thicker coats, such as Huskies,

should not be left outside for long periods of

time in below freezing weather.

If you are not able to house your dog inside,

make sure they have the right resources outside:

your pets should have access to a warm

solid shelter and fresh, non frozen water

(either change water frequently or use a petsafe

heated bowl). The shelter floor should be

off the ground and have thick, dry bedding:

this helps keep the pet warm and dry. The

shelter’s door should be located away from

prevailing winds.

• • •

Be mindful before starting your engine:

When you are getting ready to leave in the

morning, always look underneath your car and

bang on the hood. Warm engines are very

appealing to outdoor and feral cats, so making

noise will make sure any cats who may have

taken shelter under your car will abandon their

temporary bed.

Keep them Wagging on Your Winter Walks:

When you take your dog for a walk check their

paws frequently and wipe their feet at the end

of the walk. If you check your dog’s paw pads,

you will catch weather injury right away--paw

pads can crack and bleed or ice can accumulate

between their toes. If your dog seems to routinely

have issues with his or her paw pads

consider getting dog boots for them to wear.

Practice Post-Walk Health: When out for a

walk, your dog may acquire antifreeze or other

dangerous chemicals on their fur so make sure

to wipe your dog down when you return from

a walk.

Be mindful of older pets: If your pet seems

to slow down in the winter, they may have

arthritis. Colder weather can exacerbate the

pain of arthritis and you may see your pet less

willing to go on a walk, not able to jump as

well as they used to, or seeking more comfortable

bedding. If you see the signs, or are concerned

at all, speak to your veterinarian.’

Light and Shadows

“The subject of my painting is the never-ending game of light

and shadows: they reveal forms and materials, all the individual

expressions. People or building’s characters. Some

modernist could object: “Why painting old-fashion like this?”

I would answer that the light of every century is different. At

the time of Renaissance the light was different. I am a man of

my time. I paint what I see.” Exhibit through February 28,

She married Gerald Jourdan on June 22, 1946. Her first of

two children was born on May 9, 1947, Gerald Jourdan, Jr.

Her second child, Jill Elaine Jourdan, was born on May 23,

1964, some 17 years later. Elaine worked at Cellucord, Corp

for 15 years. During this time, she did a lot of volunteer

work playing the piano for the Vermont state hospital, and

nursing homes. She was also active in the Catholic Church,

serving as Grand Region of Catholic Daughters and an

Officer in the Alter Society. She led a very full and active

life. Elaine also served for many years on the Waterbury

She divorced and moved from Waterbury to Barre. Elaine

on October 22, 1978. Elaine inherited many step children

and step grandchildren, who she enjoyed and loved. Elaine

and Elmer shared five years together before he died. During

was chosen to represent Vermont in the American Classic

Woman Pageant in Biloxi, Mississippi. Elaine joined the

nieces and nephews, to include Susan Griffin, Kim Healy,

Jean Ellis, Tracey Guss, Roxane Elllis, Jan Robinson, and

the Jourdans, Larry, Sheila, David, Diane, Trevor, Dana, and

Leia. At the age of 89, she was an amazing woman: bright,

funny, and a good friend. Elaine’s pretty green eyes and her

smile brightened the room. She will be missed by all. A

memorial service will be held at the Episcopal Church of the

Good Shepherd in Barre, Vermont on January 20th, 2018 at

Dear Editor:

On the last Sunday of every month, volunteers from Beth

Jacob Synagogue serve a dinner at Bethany United Church.

This free dinner is open to the community, primarily serving

people who need a nutritious warm meal. This month, the dinner

fell on a chilly New Year’s Eve. Because of the holiday,

there were few volunteers available to cook, serve, and host

the meal. Rather than cancel, we reached out to local businesses

for help.

Our heartfelt thanks to Sarducci’s, Positive Pie, Dominos,

and Blue Stone for their generous donations. Having a pizza

dinner on New Year’s Eve was a special treat for our guests

and greatly appreciated by all.

Please support these generous businesses that care about

and strengthen our community.

We Must Address

This

Public Health

Concern

Dear Editor:

Lyme Disease has spread

at an alarming rate in Vermont

and continues to grow.

According to the Vermont

Department of Health, in

2015, Vermont had the highest

rate of reported Lyme

Disease in the United States.

Currently, according to the

CDC, Vermont is listed #1 in

the country for confirmed

cases of Lyme and is designated

as an “Endemic State”.

In a study done by Doctor

Marie J. George of the

Infectious Disease

Department at Southwestern

Vermont Medical Center,

upwards of 63 percent of

ticks are infected statewide

with at least one tick borne

illness, with some carrying

two at the same time.

Ticks and Lyme Disease

are an enormous public health

concern that must be

addressed immediately. An

efficient and cost effective

solution is to work with

Mother Nature rather than

against. That means stopping

the recreational and commercial

killing of foxes , who are

the main predator of whitefooted

mice who are a major

transmitter of Lyme Disease.

Research studies show that

there is a link between the

increase of mice populations

and activity and the decline

of predators that hunt mice,

such as foxes. Mice infect up to 95 percent of ticks that feed

on them and are responsible for infecting the majority of ticks

carrying Lyme Disease in the Northeast. If a moratorium is

placed on the recreational/commercial killing of foxes in

Vermont, there is a likelihood we will see a decline in the

spread of Lyme Disease and other tick borne illnesses. When

there are more foxes on the landscape preying on mice this

results in fewer mice transmitting Lyme Disease.

It also must be noted that hundreds of foxes are likely killed

each year in Vermont, yet the VT Fish & Wildlife Department

has inadequate data on this since little to no reporting is

required. The Department also lacks data on population trends

of foxes, which means they cannot give an accurate estimate

if fox populations are healthy and thriving. These animals are

viewed as throwaways and I would like to see more value

placed on them for the vital role they play in our ecosystems.

This safe and sensible policy of halting the sport killing of

foxes may have tremendous and lifesaving results for the

health and safety for Vermont residents.

The health benefits of establishing a moratorium on the

sport killing of foxes to the entire population of Vermont far

outweigh any recreational benefits experienced by a small

fraction of Vermonters who kill them. No one can equate the

paltry price of a fox pelt to the cost of bearing Lyme Disease

or other tick borne illnesses. Taking a modest, evidencedbased

step to combat the rapidly growing rate of tick borne

diseases is well worth the time and effort of the Vermont Fish

& Wildlife Board to consider.

Guest Opinion:

Beginning Farmers Stand to Benefit

from Proposed Act

By Anna Johnson

Center for Rural Affairs

The average age of today’s farmer is 58 years old. Over the

course of the next five years (the duration of the next farm

bill), nearly 100 million acres of farmland are predicted to

change hands.

Some retiring farmers and ranchers will pass their land and

operations to their children or other relatives, however, many

are heading toward retirement without a succession plan in

place.

Today’s beginning farmers juggle a great deal in raising and

marketing crops and livestock. We need to support policies

that ensure they have the necessary tools and resources to be

successful.

In November, congressional lawmakers introduced the

Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act to ensure the

2018 farm bill focuses on the future of American agriculture.

The bill provides for programs and policies that would create

opportunities for the next generation of farmers and ranchers.

The bill expands beginning farmer and rancher access to

affordable land; empowers producers with the skills needed to

succeed in today’s agricultural economy; ensures equitable

access to financial capital and federal crop insurance; and

encourages commitment to conservation and land stewardship.

We stand with congressional sponsors of this legislation

in supporting beginning farmers and ranchers. The Beginning

Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act should be included in

the 2018 farm bill.

It’s a Tad Chilly for Me

By G. E. Shuman

So, recently my

brother Steve,

who lives in

Florida and I were

having a bit of a ‘climate’

contest, which

went on for a few days. The contest

went like this: Steve would text me a

picture of his outdoor thermometer, and

I would answer back with a picture of

mine. Or, he would text with a comment

on the weather down there, and I would

answer with one about how things were

here. One of Steve’s pics was accompanied

by a note of “I think I can… I think

I can…” as the needle slowly climbed to

fifty degrees (I love my brother, I just

hate his thermometer).

In reality, my brother doesn’t brag,

and seemed very concerned for us when

I sent the picture of our weather situation

with the big numerals showing -20

degrees. Yes, if you don’t live around

here, that was MINUS twenty degrees.

What fun.

Our texting soon stopped, and I had to

go outside and try to start up my stupid snow blower anyway.

Steve likely went out to check on his posies or something. I

suppose I need to watch my adjectives. There really can’t be

anything particularly stupid about a snow blower. I like mine

because it works, and I hate it because it only works if I’m out

there with it, like it gets lonely or something. Maybe that’s the

part that’s stupid. We have remote controls for everything in

our country, from turning on the AC in the summer to starting

the car in the winter. And Elon Musk can land a rocket back

on the launch pad without even touching it (oh yes, that’s also

in Florida). Still, why can’t my snow blower simply run itself

up and down the driveway without me? I would be happy to

An interesting topic for a show, don’t

you think? Pat McDonald and Ben

Kinsley, co-produce and co-host a TV

show called Vote for Vermont. On a recent

show they interviewed Dan Barlow, public

policy manager for Vermont Business for

Social Responsibility (VBSR). He represents

VBSR at the statehouse lobbying on such topics

as health care reform, clean energy, and

employment issues. He was also an awardwinning

journalist. But in his off hours he is

the co-founder of Green Mountain Graveyards,

a photographer and researcher devoted to telling stories about

Vermont cemeteries. This year Dan was among the 40 most

accomplished young leaders in Vermont who were recognized

by Vermont Business Magazine as a Rising Star for their commitment

to business growth, professional excellence and their

communities.

VBSR’s goal is to advance business ethics that value multiple

bottom lines to include the economy, social issues and

the environment. VBSR has over 700 members representing a

wide variety of businesses from entrepreneurs and LLCs to

major corporations. Because their members run the gamut,

each has its own interests and concerns. VBSR tried to find

the common denominator that they can all agree on and work

together to make an impact on their employees and business.

– such as child care or health care. VBSR believes businesses

have as much responsibility to workers, communities and the

environment as they do to being financially successful. VBSR

works hard to find the balance of these two objectives as

opposed to making it an either/or proposition.

Asked which companies demonstrate a strong balance

between the environment and business, Dan mentioned the

Alchemist for their work with clean water; Black River

Produce for their work with the Farm to Plate initiative; and

Seventh Generation for their work with energy and the environment.

With regard to the economy, VBSR runs the Vermont intern

program, matching businesses with recent college graduates

and they publish the Buy Local First Vermont Coupon Book

as a great way to highlight strictly Vermont businesses. The

Book includes over $3,000 in coupons to more than 250

locally owned and independent Vermont businesses. During

the legislative session, Dan works as a lobbyist but when the

legislature is not in session, Dan provides workshops on

changes in legislation to members and works with individual

members to help them be in compliance with new laws and

regulations.

One topic of importance to VBSR is the continuing issue of

the Independent Contractors. Dan notes that the existing test

(referred to as the ABC test through the Department of Labor)

has not kept up with the changing economics. VBSR is supporting

using the Federal test which provides a set of criteria

where no single factor is decisive in determining a worker’s

status. Dan commented that if Vermont is so focused on entrepreneurs,

it makes sense to support the

Independent Contractor designation to foster

the sole proprietor model. VBSR would also

like to see a common test for both unemployment

and workers compensation to provide

consistency and predictability in the system.

One of VBSR’s frustrations as with many

Vermonters is the condition of Lake Champlain

and Vermont’s waters and why it is taking so

many years to develop and implement a plan

to clean up the Lake and our waters. VBSR

realizes the economic impact the Lake has on

Vermont and how important clean water is to the State. Dan

noted that the solution is to identify a stable financial mechanism

and a plan to address the issues.

Dan noted one of the outstanding successes from last session

was the Public Retirement Study Committee, chaired by

the State Treasurer, to recommend the establishment of a

state-wide public retirement plan. The benefit to employees of

non-profits and small-businesses who can’t afford to provide

a retirement plan is immeasurable to provide security in

retirement.

Looking ahead, VBSR will be focused on the impact of the

opiod crisis on employees and businesses. Dan reminded us

that everyone is impacted on some level and we should all be

concerned.

And now the conversation shifted to graveyards and Dan’s

fascination with their history and use of symbols to explain

how they reflect the lives of the deceased and their religious

beliefs. Dan told many stories about such notables as Col.

James Fisk, Jr. known as “Big Jim” who was murdered and

buried in Bennington. He talked about how the finality of

death softened over the years from the use of a skull with

wings to the use of a cherub with wings. One of the more

comical stories Dan told was about a stone in Calais that has

a can of Budweiser etched on it with a built-in beer cozy to

place your beer while you a visiting. Dan estimated that there

are about 2,000 private and public cemeteries across the State.

You can see all of Dan’s pictures and read his stories and

results of his research by going to greenmountaingraveyards.

com. Dan works on this project in partnership with Scott Baer,

an artist from Montpelier.

Note: Lots of other issues were discussed with Dan. If you

watch it from the kitchen window (there

is no justice, other than in the picture

my daughter just sent me of a snowcovered

palm tree).

Those of us up here in the Arctic

reaches of New England all know it has

been just a tad chilly of late. Yes, we are

supposed to be tough up here, and yes,

I still see delivery people wearing

shorts, even as their knees are probably

knocking together, but, personally, I’m

getting somewhat tired of being cold. It

could be just me, but lately I have felt a

real chill when the sun goes down, and

find myself in a recliner covered with a

comforter on many of those dark evenings.

It helps a lot that it gets dark

shortly after lunchtime around here

lately.

I do have the privilege of spending

many evenings with my eighteenmonth-old

granddaughter, Nahla. She

comes over to babysit me quite a bit.

Nahla also seems to like cuddling up on

the couch with that old comforter and

older Papa, just as much as old Papa

does (I also sneak some of her snacks of popcorn or Cheeriosshe

doesn’t seem to mind). We watch her favorite toddlerappropriate

TV show, (it’s something we both can relate to)

and both of us usually fall asleep as she listens to the music

and I listen to the furnace gulping down fuel in the cellar.

Fellow New Englanders, winter has really just begun, and

if you’re like me, you probably didn’t like my reminding you

of that fact (I wish I would be quiet). Still, I do intend to make

the best of it. God has blessed me with a big old sturdy house

to take shelter in, and a beautiful child to share the comforter

and the Cheerios with. What more could anyone ask for?

With support from the Salvation Army, the Star 92.9 radio group,

Shearer Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac, and Lenny’s Shoe &

Apparel, our community helped make the holidays brighter for over

1,000 local children through the Christmas is for Kids Angel Tag

Program.

Over One Thousand Local

Children Receive Holiday Cheer

The holiday season shined brightly

for hundreds of local children as the

generous community made their

Christmas wishes come true.

The Salvation Army teamed up

with the Star 92.9 radio group,

Shearer Chevrolet Buick GMC

Cadillac, and Lenny’s Shoe &

Apparel for the annual Christmas is

for Kids holiday gift drive. Through

the month of December, the radio

group shared the Christmas wish lists of local children live on

the airwaves. The community reacted by fulfilling Angel Tag

wish lists and dropping gift donations off at Lenny’s Shoe &

Apparel.

“I am in awe at the number of gifts that came through our

doors,” said Amanda Cashin, Marketing Director at Lenny’s

Shoe & Apparel. “The Salvation Army came to our four stores

multiple times a week and filled their box trucks with the

donated presents. It feels wonderful to be a part of this massive

holiday donation effort that made the holidays a happy

one for hundreds of kids this Christmas.”

This was the 5th year of the Christmas is for Kids program.

This year, over 1,000 children received Christmas gifts

through the Angel Tag program in Chittenden, Washington

and Franklin counties in Vermont and Clinton County New

York.

“We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from

our listeners and the community in helping make this year’s

Christmas is for Kids campaign the most successful in the

history of our Angel Tag sponsorship with the Salvation

Army, said JoAnn Cyr, General Sales Manager, Vox AM/FM

Radio Group. “The new partnership this year with Lenny’s

Shoe and Apparel made it much easier for gift drop-offs and

directly contributed to a much higher turnout for Angel Tag

participation this year. We couldn’t be happier!”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

Guess what, Lamb? You’re about

to experience a new perspective

on a situation you long regarded

quite differently. What you learn

could open more opportunities

later.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bold Bovine is tempted to

charge into a new venture. But it might be best to take things one

step at a time, so that you know just where you are at any given

point.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It’s a good time to go on that fun

getaway you’ve been planning. You’ll return refreshed, ready and,

yes, even eager to tackle the new challenge that awaits you.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child loves to fantasize

about magical happenings in the early part of the week. But the

sensible Crab gets down to serious business by week’s end.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) What goes around comes around for

those lucky Leos and Leonas whose acts of generosity could be

repaid with opportunities to expand into new and exciting areas

of interest.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your concern about your

job responsibilities is commendable. But you need to take some

quiet time to share with someone who has really missed being

with you.

LIBRA LAST (September WEEK 23 to OF October THE 22) Aspects favor getting out

and meeting new people. And as a bonus, you might find that

some

MONTH:

of your newly made friends could offer important business

contacts.

SCORPIO (October

LUCKY

23 to November

WINNING

21) You

COUPLE

might take pride in

wanting to do everything FOR yourself. THIS But MONTH: now’s a good time to ask

family members On DECEMBER to help with 31, a demanding DEAN & TINA personal GALLISON situation.

SAGITTARIUS of WORCESTER (November celebrate 22 to December their 12th 21) ANNIVERSARY!

Pay more attention

to the possibilities in that workplace change. It could show

the way to make that long-sought turn on your career path.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your need to succeed

might overwhelm obligations to your loved ones. Ease up

on that workload and into some well-deserved time with family

and friends.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Love rules for amorous

Aquarians who can make good use of their ability to communicate

feelings. Don’t be surprised if they’re reciprocated in kind.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Fishing for compliments? No

doubt, you probably earned them. But it’s best to let others believe

they were the ones who uncovered the treasure you really are.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your good works flow from an open, generous

heart. Nothing makes you happier than to see others happy

as well.

SPRING BRIDES | THE CEREMONY

An Intimate Affair

A

small, intimate wedding has loads of romance to it — as well as many other

advantages. While the large wedding has become a staple of contemporary

American culture, the small wedding is making a comeback, and for good reason.

Before you set your final

budget and guest list, consider

the following motivations for

staying small.

GET MARRIED

WHERE YOU WANT

Think of all the gorgeous

venues you could either price

yourself out of, or not be able

to fit into due to the size of

your party. Keeping your guest

list small gives you more

options.

It also opens up venues that

don’t traditionally host weddings

— or charge “wedding

prices.” Think of places such as

an art museum, a zoo or a

greenhouse.

SPEND MORE QUALITY

TIME WITH GUESTS

An intimate wedding typically

has less than 75 guests,

which means you will have a

lot more time to spend with

each person.

Walk around to each table

and personally thank people

for coming. Depending on the

size of your party, consider

seating everyone at one long

table — creating an intimate

dinner party atmosphere.

© ADOBE STOCK

DO MORE WITH

YOUR MONEY

Small weddings can cost less,

saving you thousands.

Alternatively, you could spend

the same amount as you would

have set aside for a larger affair

and splurge on the luxurious

extras you want most.

A smaller wedding can be a

way for you to ensure your

guests have a night they will

always remember, and that you

have the wedding you always

dreamed about.

PUT YOUR MONEY

TOWARD YOUR FUTURE

Your wedding day is a magical

day and will most likely

always hold a distinct place in

your heart. But remember, it is

just one day.

Hosting a smaller wedding

means you are free to put additional

money toward future

goals, such as putting a down

payment on a house or saving

to start a family. Remember,

your lives together are just

beginning.

SPRING BRIDES | ATTIRE

Choosing Bridesmaids Dresses

Nothing can cause

more drama than

choosing bridesmaids

dresses — especially if you

have a large bridal party

or opinionated attendants.

The smart bride understands

that this aspect of her wedding is

less about her and more about her

maids.

HAVE KEY INFO IN HAND

You should know your wedding

colors and have your venue

booked and your own gown

ordered. All of these items will

impact the style and hue of the

gowns you choose.

Will you be choosing the gown

or have you decided to allow your

maids to choose their own (with

your final approval, of course)? Do

you want your maids in the same

style?

Will they be wearing various colors

or hues of the same color?

Know the answers to each of these

questions before stepping foot

inside a bridal salon.

© ADOBE STOCK

START WITH PICTURES

Look through many photos

before you begin shopping. Also

keep in mind, as much as you love

them, your friends are not models

(unless they are) — so what you

see in photos will look different in

person and on each individual person.

CONSIDER THE COST

Not everyone is going to have the

same budget, and a compassionate

bride-to-be will be mindful of this.

Unless you are picking up the tab,

don’t choose a pricey gown. Not

everyone views your wedding as

the investment you see it as.

BE FLEXIBLE

This applies both to your expectations

of the dress and your

maids. Keep in mind that the color

you see in a magazine might be

slightly different in person.

Be flexible in terms of what is

will look good on different skin

tones. Remember, as much as you

might love a color, above all, you

want everyone to look their best.

ORDER AT THE RIGHT TIME

Many dresses require one to

three months to ship, so be sure to

allow for this. After the dresses

arrive, you also will need time for

your maids to pick them up

(unless they are being shipped

directly) and for the gowns to be

altered.

So don’t wait too long before

checking this item off the bridal

to-do list.

We offer an

exquisite collection

of diamond wedding

rings and matching

wedding

bands for

the bride

& groom.

Affordable bachelor and

bachelorette party ideas

T

aking

into account gifts, wardrobes, makeup, bridal

showers, and travel, including getting to and from the

bachelor/bachelorette party, bridal party members are

on the hook for a lot of money when their friends or family

members tie the knot. Many men and women like to travel for

their bachelor/bachelorette parties, and cost-conscious bridal

party members may be concerned about how expensive such

parties can be.

Taking steps to control costs can help cost-conscious

couples and their friends. The following are some affordable

ideas that can be fun for all involved.

• Bar or winery crawl: Partygoers typically want to enjoy a

night out on the town, and traveling from one establishment

to another can be a fun way to do just that. Everyone invited

can set themselves apart with a signature item (hat, T-shirt, or

colored clothing), and make the rounds.

• Attend a group event: Group events include sporting

events, concerts, theater shows, or a night at a comedy club.

Investigate discounted tickets for large groups.

• Belt out the tunes: Open mic nights at restaurants, bars

and other establishments around town may make for a fun

way for friends to share a few laughs together. Participants

need not be professional singers to join in on the festivities.

• Camp out: Get in touch with nature by enjoying a camping

trip, complete with a campfire and a few brews. Spending

time in the wilderness can restore focus and let stress melt

away.

• Poker or game night: Groups can gather around the poker

table to test their skills in poker and other card games. With

some free-flowing beverages and snacks galore, games can

get pretty animated.

• Dinner party: Hire a chef to visit your house and prepare

a meal for guests. Serve a signature cocktail and let the conversation

flow.

Bachelor and bachelorette parties can be affordable without

sacrificing fun.

SPRING BRIDES | TRADITIONS

Plan an Elegant Bridal Tea

S

pring

is the perfect time to host an elegant bridal tea. Whether you are a bridesmaid or the mother of the bride

or groom looking to honor the bride-to-be — or are a bride yourself — consider hosting a fancy get-together.

It is inexpensive, chic and fairly

easy to pull off without additional

stress.

SAVE ON RENTAL FEES

You can save a significant amount

of money by hosting the tea at someone’s

home rather than at an event

center or restaurant. Sunny spring

weather means everyone should be

comfortable in a backyard or patio

setup.

You will just need to be sure to have

enough seating for everyone, which

might require renting a few tables and

extra chairs.

CAPITALIZE ON

SPRING FLOWERS

An outdoor affair also provides

plenty of natural decor. Afraid of rain?

Flowers such as peonies are bountiful

in spring, and their large blooms

mean you only need one or two at

each table to create a stunning effect.

Roses also are a classic choice, with

many varieties blooming in early

spring. Any flower you choose, however,

will add feminine flare and complement

the tea service.

© ADOBE STOCK

USE FAMILY CHINA

While the betrothed couple might

not be registering for china, you can

bet that their grandmothers — and the

grandmothers of close friends — did

so, still have it and hardly ever use it.

Many women will most likely be

happy to contribute to the occasion

and let you borrow their settings. Be

sure to keep track of which patterns

belong to who, and return them

promptly and hand washed. (Most

china is too delicate for a dishwasher.)

DON’T FORGET THE

TEA ALTERNATIVES

Not everyone is fond of tea, so be

sure to have alternatives to offer to

guests.

For hot beverages that also can be

sipped out of china, offer coffee or hot

chocolate (a delicacy consumed yearround

in many other countries), as

well as cold beverages such as lemonade,

or water garnished with cucumber

or mint.

DELICATE DECADENCE

BARRE’S HOMETOWN BAKERY

Master the wedding save-the-date

Many couples’ weddings take more than a year to plan. Couples want all of the special

people in their lives to witness their vows, and giving guests advance notice can

ensure as many loved ones as possible attend the ceremony.

Not only should a cake look

amazing but it should

taste amazing, too!

To be certain that guests have ample notice to clear their

schedules, many couples now turn to save-the-date cards, which

announce weddings well in advance of the actual wedding day.

Save-the-date cards once were reserved only for weddings

that required travel or special circumstances, such as destination

weddings. But such cards have now become commonplace

for all weddings. That’s because many people plan vacations

or business trips anywhere from four to six months in advance.

Busy people require plenty of notice to include this important

date on their calendars, particularly when wedding dates fall

during popular travel seasons or around the holidays.

www.shalinebridal.com

Kleinfeld Bridal, a premiere New York bridal boutique, says

that save-the-date cards are typically mailed six to eight months

prior to the wedding, though some are sent as early as a year

before the big day. Once a date and a location is secured, savethe-dates

can be ordered and mailed.

Save-the-date cards require couples to assemble their guest

lists well in advance of the wedding. The leading bridal resource

The Knot notes that everyone who will get a wedding invitation

should also receive a save-the-date card. There’s no turning

back once cards are sent, so couples will need to be certain

everyone they want to attend is getting advanced notice.

It’s acceptable to mail save-the-date cards even if some wedding

day details are still up in the air. Guests really only need

to know the date and location of the wedding. Couples also

can use the save-the-date card to direct invitees to a wedding

website where guests can learn the details of the wedding as

they unfold.

RSVP information does not need to be included on the savethe-date

card.

Save-the-date cards are much less formal than invitations, so

couples can have fun with them. They can showcase couples’

clever personalities or funny quirks. Keep in mind it is in poor

taste to mention gifts or registries on save-the-date cards. There

will be plenty of time to direct guests to registries later on.

Couples are increasingly turning to save-the-date cards when

planning their weddings to make sure busy friends and family

will have enough time to make plans to attend their weddings.


SPRING BRIDES | FLOWERS

Incorporate flowers in various ways

Weddings are special moments

for couples and the

guests they invite to share

their happiness on their big

days. Beautiful weddings require substantial

planning, as every last detail must be

considered for couples to enjoy the wedding

of their dreams.

Flowers play a big role in many weddings, and

couples can add beauty and ambiance to the event by

using floral arrangements in various ways. Modern floral

arrangements are stunning, and many couples may

not know that herbs, spices and flowers have been used

in weddings for centuries.

Today, flowers are used to decorate wedding venues,

impart sweet fragrances and complement formal attire,

but in ancient times they were used differently.

Flowers were used to bestow good luck on the couple

and keep bad omens away. Brides carried aromatic

flowers and spices to keep evil spirits from spoiling the

festivities, and some even tucked bulbs of garlic into

their bouquets. In ancient Greece and Rome, both the

bride and groom wore garlands made out of strongsmelling

herbs flowers around their necks or heads.

These wreaths were considered gifts of nature, and

thus extremely appropriate for a wedding. Traditionally,

bridesmaids would be responsible for fashioning

these floral components. In ancient Sweden, young

girls would carry small bouquets of fragrant herbs

down the aisle and the groom would put thyme in his

pocket. These aromatics were thought to help keep

trolls at bay.

Besides warding off spirits or hungry trolls, flowers

also served more practical purposes throughout history.

During the Middle Ages, people bathed less frequently

than they do today. Bathing might only have occurred

twice a year, once during summer and then again at

Christmastime. Because many weddings took place in

the spring, flowers were used to mask bodily odors.

Not only were flowers and herbs carried, but they also

would be sewn into clothing.

Modern brides and grooms may no longer see their

wedding days as times for opportunistic evil spirits.

But that doesn’t mean that couples cannot borrow from

ancient traditions and incorporate flowers into their

weddings in various ways.

• Wreaths and garlands: Ask the florist to weave small

flower buds, berries and vines to a headband, wreath

or piece of twine so that the bride and groom can wear

these flowers in the way they were worn by ancient

Greeks and Romans. When coupled with Grecianstyled

wedding gowns, brides can look like beautiful

goddesses on their wedding days.

• Fragrant favors: Tuck dried rose petals and other fragrant

flowers into sachets that are embroidered with the

wedding date and couple’s names. Guests can use these

sachets to keep clothings smelling fresh in drawers or

as subtle air fresheners around the house.

• Edible flowers: Ask the caterer to make meals flowerfriendly

by including some edible blooms in the salad

or as a garnish on meals.

• Raining petals: In lieu of bubbles or birdseed, guests

can shower the newlyweds with rose petals after the

ceremony.

• Memorial: Some couples like to honor departed family

members. Floral arrangements with small placards

can make for fitting memorials.

What various flowers can represent

Flowers have long been used to convey

certain feelings in many cultures.

Folklore, poetry and mythologies have

played a role in defi ning the various

meanings associated with certain blooms.

Understanding the meanings behind various flowers can

help couples more accurately express their feelings toward

the special people in their lives. Read on to learn more about

what certain blooms may symbolize.

• Amaryllis: This flower symbolizes splendid beauty and can

be given to indicate worth beyond beauty.

• Aster: The popular aster symbolizes wisdom and devotion.

• Bird of Paradise: The interesting shape and rarity of these

blooms symbolizes joyfulness and magnificence. It can be an

exciting flower, and one that evokes feelings of anticipation.

• Black-eyed Susan: These vibrant blooms represent justice

and can be ideal for the person who works in the legal profession.

• Carnation: A less expensive alternative to roses, carnations

represent pride and beauty. Furthermore, the colors of

carnations represent different meanings. Red symbolizes

love, while pink is for a mother’s love and white represents

innocence and pure love.

• Daisy: Innocence and purity are the meanings behind the

yellow and white daisy. This can be the perfect pick for new,

young love.

• Freesia: Those wanting to evoke passionate feelings can

choose freesia, which is also said to mean “joy.”

• Hydrangea: Hydrangeas symbolize heartfelt emotions and

can be used to express gratitude for being understood. This

may be the perfect “making amends” flower.

• Lilac: Couples seeking tranquility and passion can turn to

lilacs. The calming lavender hues also can be a welcome

change in floral arrangements.

• Rose: Of course, no flower roundup would be complete

without roses. Roses represent love and passion, and, like

carnations, their colors symbolize different things. Red roses

represent desire, pink roses suggest happiness and white

roses symbolize worthiness. Avoid yellow roses, which suggest

fading love.

• Zinnia: Zinnias symbolize thoughts of distant friends and

can make a thoughtful friendship arrangement to send to a

faraway comrade.

SPRING BRIDES | AFTER THE WEDDDING

Thank You Card Etiquette

Receiving wedding gifts is an added joy

of getting married. Writing thank-you

notes for each of these gifts, however,

can be a challenge

This is especially true if you receive a large number of gifts.

Not to worry, with this simple guide, your thank-yous will be

thoughtfully written and in the mail in no time.

Who to Thank

Everyone who has given you a gift should receive your

thanks. Be sure to add anyone who helped in planning, organizing,

and decorating or ran errands on your behalf. Your

wedding would not have been what it was without help.

Start by making a list. This will ensure you don’t forget

anyone and makes it easy to cross off each name as cards are

written.

When to Send

For every gift you receive before your big day, you have

a couple of weeks to post a thank you note. For every gift

received at or after your wedding, you generally have a few

months.

This is not to say you should wait until the end of this

etiquette deadline. Try to send your thank-you notes out as

quickly as possible — ideally within the first few weeks after

you return from your honeymoon.

What to Say

As a culture, we have always struggled with the best way

to say, “thank you.” The best way to pen a mass quantity

of thank-you notes is to stick with a simple formula, with a

touch of personalization.

Start with a simple greeting:

Dear __________________________,

Then express your gratitude: Thank you so much for

__________________________.

Next, mention the gift by name and add a personal detail.

This could be how you plan on using or displaying the gift.

If the person has given money, describe how you plan to

spend it.

Follow up this sentence by stating when you hope to see

the person again, what the person means to you, or just that

you’re thinking of her.

Finally, end with your regards.

Making it Fun

You can relieve much of your anxiety about the task by making

the experience an enjoyable one. Start off by stocking up

on some beautiful stationery.

Thank-you cards are items you will need again and again, so

you can take advantage of bulk deals without worrying about

waste.

Make it an “event.” Put on some fun music, pour a glass of

wine and pick up your favorite pen. Don’t forget to split the

task with your beloved.

GO FIGURE

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

the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by

following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given

(that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the

numbers below the diagram to complete its blank

squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

SPRING BRIDES | GETTING STARTED

Perfect Engagement Photos

Congratulations, you’re engaged. This is such an

exciting time as you and your now fiance join

together and make plans to share the rest of

your lives together.

After celebrating with friends and loved

ones, one of the first things you will want

to do is capture the moment in engagement

photos.

You’ve most likely seen engagement

photos before — the good, the bad and the

outright cringe-worthy. To avoid the latter,

consider the following elements.

Do Your Research

Choosing a local photographer is key.

Look through portfolios and other engagement

sessions each professional has photographed.

Keep in mind that many photographers

include an engagement photo shoot in their

wedding photo package, so you will save in

the long run if you book the same photographer

for your wedding as your engagement

session.

Schedule Early

There are many benefits to snapping your

engagement photos as early as possible.

Not only will you want to capture the moment

while your emotions of excitement

are at their peak, but if you have them in

hand early, you can incorporate them into

your save-the-date cards and your wedding

website or publish it with an engagement

announcement in the local paper.

Even if you choose to do none of these

things, it will be one task complete. This will

give you the free time to focus your attention

elsewhere later — when you will need to

make many decisions very quickly.

Choose a Style

Your engagement photos should reflect

who you and your fiance are as a couple.

You, your fiance and your photographer

should discuss overall style and location, as

well as any outfit changes you might have

planned.

Keep in mind how you plan to use the

photos, as well as who will want them.

Think of what you wouldn’t want hanging

on your grandmother’s wall.

Plan Your Outfits

Stick with styles that complement one

another and stay within the same color pallet.

You also want to avoid looking like a

“matching set.”

Many brides-to-be incorporate white attire

into their engagement sessions, which

is a classic choice and allows the groom to

choose colors he is comfortable in, as everything

matches white.

Concepts Kakuro

Best described as a number

crossword, the task in

Kakuro is to fill all of the

empty square, using numbers

1 to 9, so the sum of

each horizontal lock equals

the number to its left, and

the sum of each vertical

block equals the number

on its top. No number may

be used in the same block

more than once.

Circles

By Kimberly Madura

Connecting the dots again again again

Is this what growth feels like,

or is it loss?

or is it change?

It is painful.

I will not call it progress because

it is not straight;

it seems now to me that life is circular.

“round and round we

go, where it stops

we’ll never know.”

Michelle’s Cat

By Charlie Knowlton

Michelle’s cat is 19 years old...

When I pick him up, his fur comes

off. When I put him down, his fur

comes off... Michelle says, “I want

him to sleep with us.” I say, “I want

a divorce.” Michelle says, “We’re

not married.” I say, “Oh!… I guess

I’ll go walk Lucy. She’s my dog.”

Ol’ Brenda

By Old George

48 of the most god awful worst years of my life!

Oh what did I do to deserve such a wife.

Worst cook I ever knew in my life.

Tried to feed the hogs that slop with broth!

Poor hogs ran from the troth!

Put some on my hook

Thought the fish would give it a yank!

Instead they all jumped up on the bank!

Ol’ Brenda’s so mean.

The only thing we do agree.

Is we don’t like each other you see.

I’ve begged, I’ve pleaded of course.

But she refuses ever to give me a divorce.

O’l Brenda is meaner than old Bronco horse!

But a horse is much prettier of course.

She gave me such a life!

What when I die!

While I’m shoveling coal.

I’ll look up and say, Oh is this hell?!

Why I couldn’t tell, after having such a wife!

Pebbles is a fun-loving young girl, looking for

Pebbles loves people, and wants nothing more

than to spend time with them! She is quick to

learn, and will do great in training classes. We

have little info about her previous life, but apparently

did well around people of all ages,

and other dogs. No knowledge of her exposure

to cats. Because of her exuberant nature, and

possibly some herding dog genetics, it would

probably be best if she didn't live with children

under 10 years old. Her adoption fee includes

SERVICE DIRECTORY

NOW HERE’S A TIP

By JoAnn Derson

* Freeze cool whip in a thick layer and use

cookie cutters to make shapes for hot chocolate

... perfect for these cold winter nights!

* “Use squeeze bottles to do cookie decorating

or cake piping. They also can be used to color pancake

batter and make designs. It’s so much fun for the kiddos (and

the parents too!)” -- L.I. in Montana

* Fog proof that bathroom mirror by simply cleaning as usual,

then coating the mirror with car wax. Use a lint-free cloth to

buff it off, revealing a layer of steam-proof protection that

lasts about a month. So good when you need a mirror to get

ready in the morning.

* When transporting any type of bottle or jar that could leak,

simply place a small piece of plastic wrap over the open end,

then close the bottle tightly. This will work for most screw-top

containers to make them leak-proof. Snap-down lids should

be secured with strong tape or placed into a larger sealable

bag, like a zipper-seal plastic baggie.

* “I toss my daughter’s hoodie sweatshirt into the dryer

about 20 minutes before she needs to leave for the bus stop

in the morning. Just as she’s leaving, I grab it and she puts it

on. It keeps her toasty all the way to the stop, and it make her

feel special.” -- M.R. in South Carolina

* Before you go out shopping, take a minute on your phone

while on the WIFI at home to search your email and websites

for sales and coupons. Screenshot coupons so that the barcodes

are clearly visible. This will save you downloading

time while you are out and about, as well as serving as a

reminder of the sale items you want to look at.

PASS, NEMST to Headline “Milk

Bowl Friday” at Thunder Road

Thunder Road officials have announced

that both the Pro All Star Series (PASS) Super

Late Models and the North East Mini Stock

Tour (NEMST) have been added to the 56th

Vermont Milk Bowl Weekend presented by

Northfield Savings Bank in 2018. The two

series will be part of a special “Milk Bowl

Friday” event to be held on Friday, September

28.

It will be the second PASS North visit of

the 2018 season to the Barre high banks, joining

the Memorial Day Classic event that has

been on the PASS calendar since 2015. For

NEMST, they will make the trip to Thunder

Road for the second time in their history and

the first since 2013.

Milk Bowl Friday will be a one-day event

for both series, with the PASS Super Late

Models running a 150-lap main event and

NEMST scheduled for a 50-lap feature. The

V8 Street Stock Showdown Series and

Thunder Road’s Burnett Scrap Metals Road

Warriors will round out the card. Post time is

set for 6:00pm.

“We’re really excited about adding a third

day of competition to Vermont Milk Bowl

Weekend, and we’re looking forward to having

the PASS Super Late Models and the

North East Mini Stock Tour be a part of it,”

Thunder Road co-owner Cris Michaud. “The

Vermont Milk Bowl has always been the biggest

weekend on the Thunder Road calendar.

By adding two of the top touring series in the

region, along with the Street Stock Showdown

Series, we hope to make it one of the biggest

weekends on the Northeast motorsports calendar

as well.”

WORLD AUTOMOTIVE

Cold Weather Brings Early Ice Fishing Opportunities

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says recent cold

weather has made ice fishing a viable Vermont outdoor activity

several weeks earlier than in recent years.

At least six inches of solid ice is recommended for safe ice

fishing, and that much ice hasn’t been present for some time

on most lakes until late January. But ice fishing enthusiasts

are now finding ample ice on many smaller lakes and the bays

of larger lakes. Ice safety precautions, however, are still very

important according to Fish & Wildlife.

Vermont’s premier fishing destination, Lake Champlain,

offers many ice fishing opportunities. According to Vermont

Fish & Wildlife, ice anglers can find quality fishing for a

variety of species on this 120-mile long lake, including landlocked

salmon, lake trout, northern pike, yellow perch, white

perch, walleye, and crappie.

“Lake Champlain attracts twice as much fishing activity

during the winter as during the summer, particularly in the

northern third of the lake,” said State Fisheries Biologist

Brian Chipman. “The plentiful yellow perch is the mainstay

of the winter fishery, but many ice anglers also find good fishing

for other species.”

Traditional northern pike hotspots include Lake Champlain’s

Kelley Bay, Missisquoi Bay, Dillenbeck Bay, Carry Bay,

Keeler Bay, St. Albans Bay, the shallow flats south of the

Gardening Trends For 2018

Each year, the Garden Media Group (www.gardenmediagroup.

com)-- a marketing fi rm for the home and garden industry—

identifi es key gardening trends for the coming season. For

2018 they’ve pegged seven of these, based around the overall

theme of nature’s prescription for mental wellness.

Dr. Leonard Perry,

Horticulture Professor Emeritus

University of Vermont

An interesting and rather surprising fact

this report begins with is from the World

Health Organization, which predicts by 2030

the number one health issue will be anxiety,

not obesity. Already, the “wellness” industries

(wellness tourism including spas, for

instance) have generated over $3.7 trillion in

revenue, and are predicted to grow over 17

percent during the next five years. The most

stressed demographic is Gen-Y, with 81 percent

of 13 to 34 year olds looking to balance

mental and physical wellness. A recommendation:

take time away from phones to stop

and smell the roses.

This wellness trend is not just about a

healthy body, but also a healthy mind—

one focused on positivity, relaxation, and

self-care. Having plants around inside and

out, especially those that help purify air

indoors, finding a quiet place to meditate,

and eating a plant-based diet are becoming

priorities for many. This is nothing new,

relaxation gardens dating back to Cyrus the

Great of Persia over 2,500 years ago. What

is new is the research supporting these, such

as studies showing that being around water

and in nature “shifts our brain towards hope

and compassion and away from stress and

anger.”

So what are the specific trends this report

highlights? The first is Climate Controlled,

or gardening in a changing climate. Ways to

do this they highlight are wind-resistant gardens,

desert gardens to withstand drought,

rain gardens to withstand flooding events,

and freeze-proof gardens with hardy plants.

Social Networks is the next trend, but

doesn’t mean for humans but rather thinking

of our gardens as interconnected social

networks. Well-known author and landscape

architect Thomas Rainer says there will be

a big shift in horticulture from “thinking

about plants as individuals to communities

of interrelated species.” This will change

our gardening to “focus on management, not

maintenance.” One example of this is using

green, living plants to cover bare soil rather

than mulch.

Imperfect Gardening is the third gardening

trend for 2018. Such gardens embrace

Wabi-Sabi— “the ancient Japanese practice

that appreciates imperfections in life and the

ability to age gracefully. Wabi-sabi gardens

imitate nature in a way that allows you to

relax and appreciate their humble and imperfect

forms—yes, even the weeds.” Now that

is my kind of garden.

Also included in this trend is repurposing

old or antique objects into the garden, and

using natural materials such as ceramic over

synthetic such as plastics. Using groundcovers

instead of lawns in some spaces,

and allowing “natural” lawns to develop

with clover and dandelions is another part

of this trend. Imperfect gardening allows

native plants, even some that are considered

“weeds”, to remain for pollinators and their

larvae.

The Breathing Room trend means privacy,

quiet, “turning off the noise.” It also means

incorporating more “clean air” plants into

interior environments to promote better

well-being, as well as removing some indoor

volatile organic compounds such as benzene,

formaldehyde, and xylene. These harmful

compounds can come from such as paints,

air fresheners, and furnishings. Some of the

air-cleansing plants that you might consider

are spider plants, Boston fern, golden

pothos, aloe vera, snake plants, and peace

lilies.

The fifth trend, Make a Splash, refers both

to incorporating more soothing water features

into gardens, as well as the functional

use of rainscapes to capture and cleanse

stormwater. “Wonders of Water” is the

theme in 2018 of the Philadelphia Flower

Show—the largest such indoor show in the

world.

Grow Your Own Protein is the trend of

“concerned citizens, particularly millennials,

turning to meat-free eating for better

health—both for ourselves and our planet.”

Plant-based proteins “require less land,

water, fuel, and other resources to grow,

making them more eco-friendly than their

animal-based counterparts.” “Flexitarian” is

the new term for those 23 million Americans

who are eating more plants, 38 percent going

meatless at least once per week. Top proteinrich

foods you can grow include edamame,

peas, quinoa, broccoli, corn, asparagus,

spinach, kale, millet, and sunflower seeds.

Purple Reign is the last trend, which

mirrors the shade of purple—ultra violet—

which is the Pantone Color of the Year

for 2018. “Purple food promotes mental

strength. Purple antioxidants, or anthocyanins,

help fight cancer, have anti-aging

benefits, reduce obesity, and protect the

heart.” Top purple foods you can grow

include beets, blueberries, goji berries,

eggplant, plums, purple cabbage, purple carrots,

and purple sweet potatoes. Or, look for

these and other purple produce at stores and

farm stands. Don’t overlook purple foliage

in the garden, such as from purple basil, or

from the many purple flowers such as annual

purple petunias or perennial salvia.

Watch for signs and products of these

trends this gardening season. Consider

which you can incorporate into your own

gardens, landscapes, and even interior living

and work spaces.
