The members of the youth-led organization Our Voices Xposed (OVX) come to Montpelier each year to discuss the challenges youth face in staying tobaccofree in Vermont. The students - representing 17 high schools - followed the march with a rally on the steps of the Statehouse that was punctuated with speeches by OVX members Emily Dugan of Fair Haven High School, Joseph Vineyard of St. Johnsbury Academy, and Hawa Adam from Burlington High School. The student group was also introduced on the floor of the House of Representatives by So. Burlington Representative Ann Pugh, and later met with legislators, presenting displays and information about how flavored tobacco products are marketed to young Vermonters. Based upon data from the Federal Trade Commission, the tobacco industry spends an estimated $17 million each year to market products in Vermont - with flavors like cherry, banana, chocolate, blueberry, and other candy and fruit flavors that appeal directly to kids and teens. In Vermont, more than 85 percent of tobacco retailers sell at least one of these flavored tobacco products. These products, such as individually sold cigarillos (little cigars), can cost very little to buy. It’s the enticement of the flavors that concerns Fair Haven student Emily Dugan. “My little brother is 10 years old, meaning he’s impressionable. He likes ‘yummy’ flavors, as do so many other kids. Flavored tobacco just gives Vermont youth a reason to try it,” Dugan said. Flavors in cigarettes have been banned since 2009, but they are promoted in other tobacco products, such as cigarillos, cigars, dip, chew and e-cigarettes. According to Spaulding sophomores Jada MacDonald and Madison Henderson joined OVX (Our Voices Xposed) youth from across Vermont at the Statehouse on February 6th to demonstrate their concern about the dangers of flavored tobacco on Vermont’s youth. OVX is Vermont’s youth-led movement to end the influence of tobacco on kids and teens in Vermont. Rhonda Williams, tobacco control chief at the Vermont Department of Health, this marketing works. “Youth consistently report flavors as the leading cause for trying e-cigarettes and cigars,” said Williams. “Our data show that youth in Vermont are twice as likely as adults to say they would try a flavored tobacco product over a non-flavored one.” Williams explained that the pervasiveness of tobacco marketing that appeals to young people is one reason the Health Department is promoting its CounterBalance campaign. “CounterBalance calls attention to the dangers of flavored tobacco products, and helps educate the public and policymakers about this threat to the health and wellness of our kids and teens.” Hawa Adams, a student at Burlington High School agrees with this focus. “I am concerned about flavored tobacco because I’ve witnessed its impact on my close family, friends and community members. I do not wish for it to continue to deceive millions more. I do not want to see anyone else get hurt.” Learn more about tobacco use in Vermont and its health and financial toll: http://www. healthvermont.gov/wellness/tobacco Vermont’s Top Youth Volunteers Of 2018 Selected By National Program Samuel Grandfield, 18, of Waterbury, and Ella Byers, 12, of Shelburne, were named Vermont’s top two youth volunteers of 2018 by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism. As State Honorees, Samuel and Ella each will receive $1,000, an engraved silver medallion, and an all-expense-paid trip in late April to Washington, D.C., where they will join the top two honorees from each of the other states and the District of Columbia for four days of national recognition events. During the trip, 10 students will be named America’s top youth volunteers of 2018. Samuel Grandfield, who is Vermont’s 2018 High School State Honoree, was nominated by Harwood Union High School in South Duxbury. Samuel, a senior at Harwood Union, has volunteered for the past two years to help people in his community stay safe by serving as a junior firefighter for his local fire department. He was inspired to join the department by his former middle school teacher, who volunteered to fight fires despite a rare liver • • • disease that ended up taking her life. “Her sense of duty and desire to help others is what motivates me to this day to help others and give back to my community,” said Sam. As a junior firefighter, Sam had to learn about all of the equipment used in responding to emergencies, and now has to train constantly to stay fit and maintain required skills. He has responded to numerous fires, ranging from small stove fires to large structure blazes, as well as several car accidents. Although he is not allowed yet to enter a burning building, he assists by managing fire hoses outside, directing traffic, and cleaning and maintaining equipment after calls. He also has taught young people about fire safety at department open houses, and helped clean chimneys for community members. After hearing about Sam’s experience as a firefighter, three of his friends also joined the fire department. “Being a firefighter isn’t just a project,” said Sam. “It’s a commitment to serve your community, to sacrifice for others.” page 4 The WORLD February 14, 2018 Come in and see the latest in kitchen and bath cabinetry and counter-tops displayed in our newly remodeled showroom.

Bluegrass Greats, Hot Rize, Visit Barre Opera House as Part of 40th Reunion Tour Hot Rize, often called “America’s Bluegrass Band,” makes a stop at The Barre Opera House as part of its 40th anniversary reunion tour on Friday, February 16 at 7:30PM. The show is sponsored by Rock of Ages. It didn’t take long after Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick, Nick Forster, and Charles Sawtelle first appeared on stage together in 1978 for the bluegrass music world to realize that the Colorado band, Hot Rize, was something special. And by the time they bowed off the stage as a full-time act in 1990, they’d not only climbed to the top of that world as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s very first Entertainers of the Year, but their stature was recognized across the board, with a nomination for a then-new bluegrass Grammy, a four-star album review in Rolling Stone, tours across four continents, and a legion of up-and-coming, broad-minded young musicians ranging from String Cheese Incident to mando monster Chris Thile learning their songs and singing their praises. The reasons for the acclaim were, and remain, obvious. Steeped in bluegrass tradition through long hours on the road spent listening to the genre’s giants—their very name was a knowing nod to Flatt & Scruggs’ long-time flour mill sponsor—Hot Rize’s music was and is equally informed by a taste for the music of Leadbelly and Freddie King, swing, old-time Appalachia and more in ways that mirror the broad sweep of Bill Monroe’s influences. And while their respect for tradition was easy to hear (and, thanks to their suits and vintage neckties, easy to see), the fresh elements they brought, whether in Sawtelle’s guitar eccentricities or Wernick’s deployment of an effects pedal on his banjo, were enough to earn them the suspicion of some audience members—and the devotion of many more. So when Hot Rize retired, it was natural for members to go on to distinguished careers of their own. However, Hot Rize turned out to be the band that refused to disappear. Rare reunion shows kept the flame burning, and when Sawtelle passed away in 1999, the surviving members brought brilliant guitarist Bryan Sutton on board—himself an already-acknowledged master—and carried on with occasional appearances, bringing their classic songs and captivating stage show to new generations. In 2014, Hot Rize released their much-anticipated studio album, the first in 24 years, and this year they’re celebrating their 40th anniversary with a reunion tour, 30 years after their last performance here at The Barre Opera House. This crazy thing happens when you hire Hot Rize – everywhere they go, the ever-popular Red Knuckles & The Trailblazers shows up as well. Invited or not, at some point Give Your Home a Hug!

Jim Howe and Mark Davis were struck by Pete Seeger’s charge to sing out and sing in community. They hadn’t really thought they were going to start playing music out in public but soon with guitar (Davis) and cello (Howe) accompaniment, they started getting gigs. The duo will sing original compositions written over the past three years as well as other tunes. One of their original tunes is “Planting Trees,” which is an uplifting song about what each person can do to improve the lives of others. Mark Davis and Jim Howe met in 2001, introduced by mutual friends. Jim was a longtime Hastings, NY resident and well-known as the author of the children’s classic Bunnicula, The Misfits, and dozens of picture books, middle grade books, and young adult novels. Mark lived in Brooklyn, practicing law with his friend John Engel, who happened to be one of the instigators of the blind date that led to the Howe-Davis union. You can find out more about them and listen to some tunes at https://www.jameshowe.com/music/.
