Liz Walsh, owner of The Drawing Board, stands with Carrie Stahler, Director of Community

Engagement at Green Mountain United Way, and $1000 worth of art supplies bound for backpacks for

children entering emergency foster care.

Drawing Board Supports Foster Children

with Art Supply Drive

The Drawing Board, Montpelier’s local

Art Supply and Framing Store, recently

donated $1000 worth of art supplies to Green

Mountain United Way. Items included markers,

paints, sketch pads, origami kits, drawing

pencils, and coloring books and will be

distributed through Tatum’s Totes coordinated

by Green Mountain United Way in the

Barre, St. Johnsbury, and Newport

Department for Children and Families districts.

This generous donation is part of The

Drawing Board’s commitment to give back

to the local community.

Tatum’s Totes is a program that provides

backpacks to children transitioning into foster

care. Tatum’s Totes was founded by Liz

and Alex Grimes when they began fostering

children after their son Tatum died of SIDS

at 5 months old. They found an independent

organization to honor Tatum’s memory and

to serve children in their home and of

Rutland County after they realized that

many foster children enter their new homes

with little more than a plastic shopping bag

with a few personal items. Green Mountain

United Way brought Tatum’s Totes to all

DCF districts in their service region in 2016

and 2017. Children entering foster care are

given a backpack of their own filled with

age-appropriate caring items including blankets,

books, toys, toothbrushes and other

hygiene items, games, a water bottle, school

supplies, and art supplies.

“Growing up, art was something that

helped me discover who I was. I imagine that

these children, like many of us, need an outlet

for creativity and a positive way to express

themselves. If we can help give these children

an opportunity to have a creative break,

to enjoy making their own art, or coloring a

picture to help relieve the stress they are

experiencing, I’m so happy to be a small part

of that positive experience for these kids,”

said Drawing Board owner Liz Walsh.

“This generous gift is an incredible example

of how our local business community is

integral to making our communities better

places to live and work.” says Carrie Stahler,

Director of Community Engagement at

Green Mountain United Way. “This donation

will directly support children who are

experiencing the trauma of changing homes,

and is a huge support to the families who

have opened their homes and lives to support

these children in our community. The

support of local businesses like The Drawing

Board helps to make this program possible.

Together we can show children transitioning

into foster that their community loves, supports,

and values them.”

In the past 12 months, Green Mountain

United Way has supplied over 75 bags to

children entering foster care. For a complete

list of items to support Tatum’s Totes, go to

www.gmunitedway.org/tatumstotes.

About Green Mountain United Way:

Green Mountain United Way is a Vermont

not-for-profit organization in operation

since 1976. They work to improve the health,

education and financial stability of every

person in every community in Caledonia,

Essex, Orange, Orleans and Washington

Counties by mobilizing the caring power of

communities around our region to advance

the common good. No other single organization

has the scope and influence to bring

together human service agencies, government,

businesses, private foundations and

dedicated volunteers around a common

vision of creating maximum impact and

achieving long-lasting results.

About Tatum’s Totes: Tatum’s Totes is an

independent nonprofit organization founded

by Liz and Alex Grimes of Rutland,

Vermont and named after their son Tatum

who died of SIDS in 2013. They found comfort

in honoring Tatum’s memory in many

ways, and one of these was through becoming

foster parents. They founded Tatum’s

Totes after realizing that children having

comforting items of their own can help ease

the transition into a new home. Tatum’s

Totes now serves all DCF regions in

Vermont.

VSAC Warns Student Loan Borrowers to

Watch Out for New Scam

Vermont Student Assistance Corporation

(VSAC) is warning borrowers about a student

loan debt relief scam hitting some

Vermont borrowers right now.

The scammers claim to be calling from

“Vermont Student Assistance” and instructing

borrowers that they need to call a company

called Riverwalk Debt Solutions in

Texas. The principals of this scam company

recently pleaded guilty in Maryland to a

$550 million Ponzi-type scheme targeting

investors and others, according to the Better

Business Bureau.

“This is a scam. Plain and simple. Do not

call this company. Instead, contact the

Vermont Attorney General’s office and

VSAC immediately if you think you have

been scammed by this outfit or any other

who tries to charge fees to help you with

your student loans,” said Scott Giles, president

and CEO of VSAC.

“Borrowers should never pay for information

related to their federal student loans.

VSAC’s team of financial aid counselors

works with you – at no charge – on a oneon-one

basis to answer your questions.”

• • •

If you believe you may have received a

scam call, contact the Attorney General’s

Consumer Assistance Program at 1-800-

649-2424 or by e-mailing AGO.CAP@vermont.gov.

For questions about student

loans, contact VSAC at 1-800-862-3177.

VSAC issued the initial alarm with federal

and state regulators five years ago. A new

wave of scammers is targeting federal student

and parent loan borrowers with promises

of having student loans forgiven and

convincing people to pay them for information

that is free. VSAC is teaming with

Attorney General T.J. Donovan to ensure

that no Vermont borrowers fall prey to this

scam.

VSAC counsels borrowers. For free. Our

financial aid experts walk you through your

loan terms; advises you on repayment plans

and much more. Call us or stop in at our

Winooski headquarters. You aren’t alone on

this.

Three things to remember:

• Never pay a fee for help.

• Keep your FSA ID private.

• Call us if you have questions.

Barre Granite Association Celebrates 130th Anniversary

2019 marks the 130th Anniversary of

the Barre Granite Association (BGA).

The association was formed in 1889,

when fourteen Barre area granite manufacturers

met to plan for the industry’s

first major trade show, the 1893 World’s

Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Originally formed as the Granite

Manufacturer’s Association of Barre,

the association merged with the Granite

Manufacturers and Quarriers

Association in 1931 and was renamed

the Barre Granite Association in 1932.

The BGA’s member firms have contributed immensely to

the growth of Barre, as well as its diverse mixture of cultures,

and the Barre area has become internationally recognized as

the premier source of the world’s finest granite, granite art

and artisans.

VT to help fund its mission to provide basic services to

people in need in the local community. H.O.P.E. and LI have

from the Tender Corporation who is based out of Littleton,

NH. Yvette O’Connor reached out to Lyndon Institute

Counselor Bobbi Warner Somers on behalf of H.O.P.E. to

facilitate the donation to LI.

Over the years, O’Connor, Somers, and Jodi Wheeler

(founder of H.O.P.E.) have worked to provide clothing,

backpacks, and other essential items for LI students. H.O.P.E.

has also provided many students with suits and dresses for

events at LI like their annual Snow Ball and Prom.

More information about

H.O.P.E. can be found on

their website at www.hopevermont.com

BGA Executive Director Doug Grahn

successful over 130 years, as well as our

local industry’s continuing resurgence.

Our members, the board of trustees and

all the employees of our member firms

have continued to support the highest

professional standard of crafting all their

products with integrity and pride; as if

they were being made for themselves

and their families.”

Currier Twins Retire from Army

Twin sisters who began their Army

National Guard careers together, went to war

in Afghanistan together and share a house

together, are now planning their retirements

from the New York Army National Guard

together.

Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Lynn

Currier and Master Sergeant Lisa Currier

twin daughters of Elizabeth C. (Tucker)

Melvin, Barre, Vermont, the late Donald K.

Currier (deceased) and step father Eldon J.

Melvin (deceased) have been members of the

Vermont and New York Army National Guard

for over 33 years each. Lynn and Lisa are

1981 graduates of Spaulding High School,

they enlisted into the Army National Guard

together in 1986.

Beginning in 1986, the two sisters, who are

both Troy, N.Y. residents, have spent more

than three decades sharing service and experiences.

It turned out to be an advertisement

for the Vermont Army National Guard, highlighting

some of the education benefits that

were offered. Lisa explained that she was able

to talk her sister into joining with her, ultimately

the Army Reserves, rather than looking

into the state police.

Both women enlisted together on February

3, 1986 on the buddy system, under that system,

Lynn explained, the two sisters were

able to go to basic training and advanced

individual training together. Six month later

coming home to Vermont, they went right to

work full-time at Camp Johnson in

Colchester.

In 1990, a previous supervisor called and

told Lynn about the full-time positions in the

New York National Guard. She interviewed

for a New York National Guard position in

December of 1990 and got the job.

Over the course of the next three years,

Lynn advanced her career in the New York

National Guard while her sister stayed behind

in Vermont. Lisa, who had transitioned from

working for the Vermont National Guard to

working for IBM, wouldn’t stay behind for

long.

“She kept saying, come over, come over,”

Lisa recalled. “I was working like 12 hour

shifts and it was just crazy. I woke up one

Sunday morning and decided, I’m tired of

this.”

Three years after Lynn made her way to

New York, Lisa put in her resignation to IBM

and left, moving in with her sister. Lisa

explained that within a couple of weeks she

was then able to find a job at the New York

Army National Guard headquarters.

The Currier sisters agreed that one of the

most significant changes they’ve seen during

their 34 year careers was an increase in

women joining the National Guard. They’ve

also been pleased to see more and more

women being selected for leadership positions.

Those opportunities, along with the fulltime

employment and benefits afforded to

them, the sisters explained there was no reason

to leave the Army National Guard. With

more women joining the military, the Army

needed to make changes. Lisa said she experienced

first-hand what she considers to be

one of the most significant changes.

While preparing to mobilize for deployment

to Iraq in 2004 with the 42nd Infantry

Division, Lisa who is a breast cancer survivor,

discovered the Army didn’t have guidelines

for how to treat women who had once

had cancer. There were regulations on how

long men had to be free from the various

types of cancers that can develop in men, but

there were no regulations covering cancers

which effect only women, Lisa said.

During mobilization at Fort Drum, the

staff decided to insist on a six month period

of being cancer free before Lisa could proceed

with mobilization. There were relapses

that reset the six month waiting period, and

as a result Lisa spent her 18 month deployment

at Fort Drum.

Since then, medical policies have changed

to accommodate women as well, Lisa said.

While the Curriers both started as enlisted

Soldiers in 1986, Lynn decided she wanted to

take her military career to another level and

Charles Martin to Lead VT ESGR

Capt. Juliet Perkins, Executive Director of

HQ Employer Support of the Guard and

Reserve (ESGR), based in Alexandria, VA,

has announced the confirmation of Charles

Martin as the next Chair to lead the VT ESGR

field committee.

ESGR’s mission is to foster a culture where

employers support and value the military service

of their Reserve Component (RC)

employees. In this role, Charles and his team

of dedicated volunteers serve as the principal

means of communication between the

Department of Defense, employers, RC service

members and the local community.

Charles is the Government Affairs Director

at the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. He

previously worked on Capitol Hill as a

• • •

become an officer after reaching the rank of

staff sergeant.

“I always wanted to be more assertive and

more in control of things,” said Lynn. “I felt

the only way that was going to happen was to

be an officer.” “She just wants to be the hot

dog,” laughed Lisa. As an officer, Lynn served

as a military police officer which was an aspiration

of hers before joining the National

Guard.

In 2008, the Currier sisters found themselves

deploying with the HQ’s 27th Infantry

Brigade Combat Team to Afghanistan, in

support of Operation Enduring Freedom

from January 2008 to December 2008.

Lynn served as the Deputy Provost

Marshal (2nd in command of the Police

Force) Camp Phoenix, Kabul, Afghanistan.

Lisa served in Mazar-i-sharif as a Senior

Logistics Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO)

in charge of over 10 million dollars’ worth of

equipment located all over the region.

“We did deploy together, but they separated

us after three or four months,” said Lisa.

“That was the big thing, they didn’t want

them together on the same base.” “In case

there was an attack,” added Lynn.

They said that Lynn remained in Kabul,

while Lisa was sent 500 miles away to Mazari-Sharif.

Initially however, Lynn arrived in

country several days before Lisa and was

waiting to offer her a lift to the astonishment

of other, higher ranking service members.

“When I flew in, I think she knew I was

coming,” said Lisa.

“I did,” said Lynn.

“I flew in with people that were a lot

higher ranking than me,” said Lisa with a

laugh, “she pulls up with the Gator and I

throw all my stuff in it and we take off, while

everyone else has to carry their stuff.”

The year passed, with those initial few

months spent with Lisa sleeping on her sister’s

floor on a couple sleeping mats, Lynn

had half a Conex box, roughly 10ft. by 15ft.

Both Soldiers returned safely home to their

families.

Now as they prepare to retire, looking

back at their fondest memories of their military

careers, Lisa said for her it is of all the

wonderful people they have been able to

meet.

“It’s like a family,” Lynn added. But it was

being a soldier that meant the most to her.

“When I had to take my uniform off, let me

tell you,” Lynn started before Lisa emphasized

that her sister was upset for weeks

afterwards.

After all of the years spent in uniform

together, they explained that they still travel

together, have recently bought a house

together, and remain as close as ever.

“If I had the same chance again, I’d do the

34 years again,” said Lisa. “When I first

enlisted I never thought I’d make three years.

And now these years have flown by.”

Lynn’s retirement came on June 21, 2019,

she has moved onto working for the Active

Army as a civilian as the Education Services

Specialist (ESS) in the US Army Recruiting

Command at the Watervliet Arsenal just outside

of Albany, NY.

Lisa will retire November 30, 2019 where

she will return to the New York Army

National Guard State Headquarters building

and work as a Contractor in the Department

of Logistics (DOL).

Though they have both retired from the

Army, they can’t seem to get the mind set and

“esprit de corps” out.

Legislative Fellow at the National Guard

Association of the United States. Prior to

beginning at the Vermont Chamber, he served

on U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy’s legislative

staff in both D.C. and Vermont. Charles

recently served as a VTARNG intelligence

officer as a Captain. He is also a member of the

Huntington Conservation Commission.

Charles grew up in East Corinth, VT and

graduated from Norwich University. He lives

in Huntington Vermont with his wife, Lindsay

Herod.

Vermont Chamber Delivers Meaningful

Cross-Border Trade

The Vermont Chamber’s 2019

Manufacturing Summit on Thursday,

September 26th will deliver numerous trade

opportunities for businesses in New England

and Canada, enhancing and helping to grow

the number of manufacturing jobs in

Vermont to 9.46% of the workforce.

The Manufacturing Summit is bringing

buyers, suppliers and partners together for

business opportunities at the Champlain

Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. Airbus,

Bell Flight, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce

and Sikorsky top the list of out-of-state companies

representing the aerospace industry

at the Manufacturing Summit. With over 600

pre-scheduled meetings, these companies

will have the opportunity to engage and add

Vermont and New England manufacturers to

their supply chains, contributing to the economic

growth of the state and region.

“Vermont is the supply chain hub for these

companies to engage pre-qualified suppliers

and partners, and optimize their supply chains

for competitive advantage,” explains Chris

Carrigan, Vice President of Business

Development for the Vermont Chamber.

“Vermont stands out as a leader in the industry

because of the Manufacturing Summit’s ability

to draw in 25 Canadian companies and 20 buyers

from large, out-of-state manufactures.”

The Vermont Chamber will host delegations

from Aéro Montréal, the Québec

Government, Connecticut aerospace, as well

as 25 Canadian companies in support of its

work to build a U.S.-Canadian Aerospace

Corridor, linking Vermont’s $2 billion aerospace

and aviation cluster with a $28 billion

Canadian aerospace industry for cross-border

contacts and contracts. This is part of the

vision of the Memorandum of Understanding

between the Vermont Chamber of

Commerce and Aéro Montréal signed in

2013 and to be enhanced by extending the

corridor to Connecticut in a signing at the

event.

In its sixth year, the Manufacturing

Summit attracts attendees from the

Northeast region and as far away as

California, Virginia and Minnesota.

Attendees network with industry peers,

meet buyers and suppliers, connect with

employers, attend industry workshops, see

new product innovations and experience

dynamic exhibits, such as an Advanced

Health Department Requesting

Provider Reports of Vapingassociated

Respiratory Illness

As part of the Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention’s investigation into cases of

severe respiratory illness associated with

e-cigarettes and vaping, the Vermont

Department of Health has asked the state’s

health care providers to watch for and report

any suspected cases.

According to the CDC, 215 possible cases

of severe pulmonary disease associated with

e-cigarette products have been reported in

25 states as of August 27. Two deaths, one

each in Illinois and Oregon, have been

reported. Vermont health officials are investigating

one suspected case.

In a Health Advisory issued on August 29,

2019, Health Commissioner Mark Levine,

MD requested that providers report cases of

significant respiratory illness among individuals

with a history of vaping or smoking

any substance in the 90 days prior to symptoms.

The information collected will be

shared with the CDC.

Although health officials have not yet

determined a single substance or e-cigarette

product associated with illness, a health

advisory from the CDC said all the people

affected reported e-cigarette use, with many

reporting they vaped cannabinoid products

such as THC or CBD. Patients have experienced

respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness

of breath, or chest pain), nausea, vomiting

or diarrhea, or other symptoms like

fatigue, fever or weight loss. Symptoms typically

develop over a period of days or weeks.

“This outbreak is disturbing, particularly

because of how serious the symptoms are

and how little we know about their cause,”

said Dr. Levine. “We want to make sure we

identify any Vermonters affected by this illness

to better understand the situation.”

According to the 2017 Vermont Youth

Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) there was a

significant increase in the percent of students

who had ever tried e-cigarettes, from

30% to 34%. Fewer than one in 20 adults said

they currently use e-cigarettes.

Among high school students in Vermont,

12%, or 3,000 students, said they used electronic

vapor products in the past 30 days,

and 15% used them every day.

Vermonters Must Be 21 to Purchase and

Possess Tobacco Products Starting Sept. 1

Starting September 1, Vermonters must be

at least 21 years old to purchase and possess

tobacco products or paraphernalia. The new

law also includes tobacco-substitute products,

such as e-cigarettes. Health officials say

the increase in buying age will help protect

youth from nicotine addiction and potentially

toxic chemicals.

Commonly known as Tobacco 21, the new

law is expected to reduce smoking rates over

time and ultimately save lives. An estimated

95% of adults start smoking by age 21, so restricting

access to these products will help

prevent young Vermonters from ever taking

it up.

“We’ve made great strides against tobacco

use, but the popularity of e-cigarettes and

vaping continues to skyrocket among our

youth,” said Health Commissioner Mark

Levine, MD. “We are also seeing evidence

of increasing rates of health problems associated

with vaping.”

According the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior

Survey (YRBS) there was a significant

increase in the percent of students who have

ever tried e-cigarettes, from 30% in 2015 to

34% in 2017. Among high school students in

Vermont, 12% said they used electronic vapor

products in the past 30 days.

A single 5% “pod” of liquid nicotine used in

e-cigarettes can contain as much nicotine as

an entire pack of cigarettes. Teens and young

adults are uniquely vulnerable to the effects

of nicotine, and more likely to get addicted.

Exposure to nicotine in adolescence can impact

attention, learning, mood and impulse

control. The aerosol that users breathe from

e-cigarettes can contain nicotine and other

toxic chemicals, including formaldehyde and

arsenic.

Dr. Levine said that while e-cigarettes are

less harmful to adults than combustible cigarettes,

they are never safe for teens and young

adults, making this new law all the more necessary.

“These cyber-cigarettes, with their

thousands of flavors, represent a 21st Century

version of big tobacco’s decades-long

push to market and promote their products

to youth,” said Dr. Levine. “Society always

races to keep up with technology. This law

• • •

A recent PACE survey of young

Vermonters conducted by the Health

Department and the University of Vermont

found that among those who reported using

marijuana in the past 30 days, 15% usually

vaporized it.

“Youth, young adults, pregnant women

and adults who do not use tobacco products

should not use e-cigarette products,” said Dr.

Levine. “If you currently use e-cigarette

products, do not buy them off the street or

modify them for unintended use.”

Public health concerns are already focused

on the risks of exposure to potentially toxic

chemicals from vaping products – including

nicotine, arsenic, lead and formaldehyde.

“We also know that e-cigarette products can

be used to deliver substances for which they

weren’t designed, like marijuana or other

products that may come from unknown

sources, which can make them more harmful,”

said Dr. Levine

Over the past several years, Vermont policy

makers have focused on protecting youth

and young adults from e-cigarette use.

Vermonters must now be 21 years or older

to buy or possess tobacco or tobacco-substitute

products, such as e-cigarettes. A Health

Department initiative called Counterbalance,

and the efforts of youth-led groups like OVX

are reaching out to educate kids about flavors

and how they are used to appeal to a

new generation. The state also added e-cigarettes

to Clean Indoor Air requirements,

prohibited online e-cigarette and liquid nicotine

sales, and began taxing them at the

same rate as tobacco-related products.

Smokers who are trying to quit should use

evidence-based approaches that have been

shown to work. Visit 802Quits.org to get

more information and free resources.

helps to close the gap in favor of protecting

public health.”

With the enactment of Act 27, Vermont

joins 17 states, the District of Columbia,

Guam and more than 480 municipalities with

a Tobacco 21 law.

Two related laws went into effect in July

that prohibit the online sales of e-cigarettes

and liquid nicotine, and subjects e-cigarettes

and liquid nicotine to the same 92% tax already

assessed on tobacco-related products.

These laws, in combination with Tobacco 21,

help strengthen statewide tobacco prevention

efforts to discourage teens and young

adults from using these products.

Health officials urge anyone looking for

help to quit smoking or the use of any kind

of tobacco product to visit 802quits.org(link

Norwich University Welcomes Authors

at Military Writers’ Symposium and

Todd Lecture Event

The 2019 Norwich University Military

Writers’ Symposium will be held on Sept.

24–25 on the theme of “Warfare in the 21st

Century: Future Battlegrounds.” A Todd

Lecture presentation, “LikeWar: The

Weaponization of Social Media,” will conclude

the symposium by one of the authors

and panelists, Peter Warren Singer, on

Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. in Mack Hall

Auditorium.

All symposium events except the Meet the

Authors dinner are free and open to the public.

Events include book and other presentations

and a panel discussion.

The Norwich University Military Writers’

Symposium, now held in the fall, replaces

what was formerly the William E. Colby

Military Writers’ Symposium, which was

historically held in the spring. Norwich continues

its tradition of recognizing a first work

with the annual Colby Award.

In April 2019, Paul Scharre captured the

2019 William E. Colby Award for his book,

“Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and

the Future of War.” Now in its 20th year, the

Colby prize is awarded annually by Norwich

University in Northfield, Vermont, to a first

solo work of fiction or nonfiction that has

made a major contribution to the understanding

of military history, intelligence

operations or international affairs.

A Senior Fellow and Director of the

Technology and National Security Program

at the Center for a New American Security,

Scharre’s debut book, “Army of None,” was

selected by Bill Gates as one of his top picks

of 2018. Scharre served as a special operations

reconnaissance team leader in the U.S.

Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion and completed

multiple tours to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Colby Award winners receive a $5,000

author honorarium provided through the

generosity of the Chicago-based Pritzker

Military Foundation. The award and honorarium

will be presented to Scharre at

Norwich University during the Norwich

University Military Writers’ Symposium,

Sept. 24-25, 2019, in Northfield, Vermont.

On Wednesday, Sept. 25, from 2 – 3:30

p.m. Scharre will join Benedetta Berti and

Peter Warren Singer for a moderated panel

discussion, “Warfare in the 21st Century:

Future Battlegrounds.” The panel discussion

will be live-streamed on the Peace and War

Center site at: https://www.norwich.edu/

pawc. A book signing event will follow the

panel from 3:30 – 4:30.

Later on Wednesday evening, Singer will

give a Todd Lecture presentation on the new

weaponization of social media in Mack Hall

Auditorium at 7 p.m. That event will be livestreamed

at the Todd Lecture website:

http://tls.norwich.edu/.

Benedetta Berti is an Eisenhower Global

Fellow and a TED Senior Fellow. She has

held positions at Harvard University, West

Point, the Institute for National Security

Studies, and the Foreign Policy Research

Leahy Announces $9.5 Million CDC Grant to Improve

Tracking and Prevention Of Opioid-Related Overdoses

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Vice

Chairman of the Senate Appropriations

Committee, Tuesday announced that the

Vermont Department of Health will receive

a three-year, $9.5 million grant from the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

to support a comprehensive statewide

response to opioid-related overdoses, while

strengthening Vermont’s prevention efforts.

The grant will increase the state’s ability

to track and respond to overdoses, including

those resulting in death; strengthen

Vermont’s Prescription Drug Monitoring

System, and provide overdose prevention

trainings around the state, working with

local communities – including libraries – to

better identify overdose risks and strengthen

outreach efforts.

Leahy said: “I’m proud of the work our

state has done to tackle the opioid epidemic.

This grant will enable the Vermont

Department of Health and its partners to

take that work to the next level, responding

in real time to overdose cases and supporting

prevention efforts in our communities.

We know what works, but we must make

sure that knowledge is reaching even our

smallest towns and villages. The risks posed

by opioids knows no bounds.”

This year’ symposium is presented in

partnership with Norwich University’s Todd

Lecture Series. The Todd Lecture Series is

named in honor of retired U.S. Army Major

General Russell Todd and his late wife,

Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service

to the university. General Todd, a 1950 graduate

of the university, also serves as president

emeritus. With this series, Norwich

brings national thought leaders from business,

politics, the arts, science, the military

and other fields and endeavors to its

Northfield campus.

Founded in 1996 by Norwich alumnus and

historian Carlo D´Este ’58 and renowned

author W.E.B. Griffin, the Norwich

University Military Writers’ Symposium has

brought more than 150 authors, historians,

and filmmakers to Norwich University in

Northfield, Vermont. The symposium is the

only program of its kind at an American university.

The Colby Symposium is a Norwich

University Peace and War Center signature

event, and is generously supported by the

Pritzker Military Museum & Library in

Chicago, Illinois, with funding through the

Pritzker Military Foundation.

About the Pritzker Military Museum &

Library

The Pritzker Military Museum & Library

is located in downtown Chicago, Ill. Open to

the public, the Museum & Library features

an extensive collection of books, programs,

artifacts, and rotating exhibits covering

many eras and branches of the world’s military

that is available to visitors in person and

online. Opened in 2003, the Museum &

Library is a center where citizens and service

members come together to learn about military

history and affairs. Each year, the

Museum & Library awards the prestigious

Pritzker Military Museum & Library

Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement

in Military Writing to recognize a living

author who has made a lifetime contribution

to the understanding of military history

affairs. The Museum & Library is supported

by its members and sponsors.

public health challenge of our time,” said

Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD.

“Over the past five years we have built a

strong intervention, prevention and treatment

infrastructure for getting Vermonters

the supports and services they need. With

thanks to Senator Leahy, this grant will allow

us to ensure our prevention programming

and policies are driven by the most comprehensive

and current data available.”

The CDC grant, nearly $3.2 million a year

over three years, will also allow the Health

Department to conduct a thorough review of

2018 drug-related fatalities and see where

those who died had previous interactions

with state systems. Vermont recorded 110

opioid-related deaths in 2018, up slightly

from 108 deaths in 2017.

Collecting and sharing information on

overdose cases in a timely manner can also

result in public warnings where one community

may be experiencing a highly lethal

strain of fentanyl or heroin, Leahy noted.

“We know we cannot rid our communities

of these deadly drugs, but we know that

sounding the alarm early can often save

lives,” said Leahy, who worked to include

$475 million in the 2019 Labor, Health and

Human Services spending bill in support of

the CDC’s overdose prevention work.

As of September 1, you must be 21 to

purchase and possess tobacco products

Raising the age at which Vermonters can

purchase and possess tobacco products from

18 to 21 will help Vermont make strides against

tobacco use, especially for youth.

This change aims to:






Reduce smoking rates

Reduce the likelihood of addiction

Protect developing brains

Reduce social sources of tobacco products

Protect teens from harmful substances from vaping aerosol including

nicotine and other toxic chemicals.

Speaker, Carleton Young states: The background to my story

is that about twelve years ago, after my parents had passed

away, I was clearing out their house in Pittsburgh and was

surprised to find a very old wooden box in the attic. Inside

the box was an enormous collection of about 250 letters

written home by two Vermont brothers as they fought in the

Civil War. The two soldiers were from Williamstown and

had attended Barre Academy on the site of the original

Spaulding High School (now of course the Vermont History

Center). There are also many close ties to Northfield with

young men from the area joining the Vermont Brigade and

Norwich University graduates serving as officers.

It turned out that the two soldiers wrote very descriptive

letters about their experiences during the war. They were

members of the Vermont Brigade, the only brigade in the

Union Army consisting of men from only one state. This

brigade became renowned for their courage and fighting

ability. They fought in many of the most famous battles of

the Civil War, and suffered more casualties that any other

brigade in the war.

After discovering the letters home of these two brothers,

for more than a decade I visited battlefields to retrace the

steps of these soldiers during the war. Based on this research,

I published the book Voices From the Attic: The

Williamstown Boys in the Civil War. The publication of the

book was followed by many positive reviews. For example,

Vermont History said the book “is more than another good

narrative. It is an adventure of historical research and discovery.”

Civil War News said that the book “is a substantial

contribution to the genre of first-person Civil War accounts

becoming so popular today and would make a worthwhile

addition to any Civil War student’s bookshelf.” The Western

Pennsylvania History Journal said that the book “offers a

deeply interesting look into two detailed experiences of the

war which explore the battles as well as life in between.

Unlike other soldiers who may have skipped over tough

details when writing home to families, the brothers did not

shy away from describing the horror of battles, their hardships

in camp, and what they saw as they marched through

the South. More than merely satisfying an interest in the

war, the author demonstrates our surprising connections to

each other both past and present.” As a result of such

reviews, over the last two years I have been invited to share

my story in nine states with more than 150 historical societies,

then on to Finisterre (“the end of the world”) on the Atlantic

coast.

Throughout their 40 days of walking they met fellow “pilgrims,”

locals in the tiny medieval villages they passed

through as well as many people whose lives are devoted to

supporting the walkers along their way. They walked through

large cities, small villages and remarkable countryside. They

toured innumerable churches, cathedrals and museums.

Their presentation, through the use of photos and videos

and maps, will touch on their personal experiences, the various

modern interpretations of being a pilgrim and the medieval

and contemporary history of the Camino. They tell tales

of the people they met, and places they stayed and walked by,

the myriad feelings they had, the sense of being in a walking

“river,” and interesting facts and statistics about the Camino

Frances. The talk, which lasts between 45 and 60 minutes is

followed by a 30 minute performance (accompanied by more

slides) of medieval and traditional music from northern

Spain on voices, Galician bagpipes, harp, lute, guitar, recorders,

whistle and clarinet. It concludes with an informal question

and answer period.

Hunters Reminded of Rules on Importing Deer, Elk

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department issued a reminder

to hunters traveling outside Vermont to hunt – and particularly

to Quebec – that the regulation restricting the importation of

deer and elk carcasses, which is designed to protect Vermont’s

wild deer from chronic wasting disease, remains in effect and

will be fully enforced. CWD was found in Quebec last year.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a fatal disease of the

brain and nervous system in deer and elk. Abnormal prion

proteins produce lesions in the brain that cause disorientation

and emaciation in conjunction with other abnormal behaviors.

For the latest information on CWD, check these websites:

www.vtfishandwildlife.com; https://tinyurl.com/y347s7um

and www.cwd-info.org.

Hunters are also reminded that it is illegal to use deer urine

lures in Vermont. Urine lures were banned because of the

potential for CWD prion proteins to be introduced to the environment

through the bodily fluids of CWD-positive ungulates

and then persist in the environment for extended periods of

time.

Vermont rules on importing and possession of deer or elk

from areas with chronic wasting disease (CWD) and captive

hunt areas or farms:

It is illegal to import or possess deer or elk, or parts of deer

or elk, from states and Canadian provinces that have had

chronic wasting disease, or from captive hunt or farm facilities

with the following exceptions:

Meat that is cut up, packaged and labeled with hunting

license information and not mixed with other deer or elk during

processing;

Meat that is boneless;

Hides or capes with no part of the head attached;

Clean skull-cap with antlers attached;

Antlers with no other meat or tissue attached;

Finished taxidermy heads;

Upper canine teeth with no tissue attached.

• • •

Vermont’s CWD importation regulations apply to hunters

bringing in deer or elk carcasses from the following states and

provinces, which now includes Quebec province:

Alberta, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas,

Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri,

Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota,

Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Saskatchewan, South

Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia,

Wisconsin, Wyoming.

“The Fish and Wildlife Department views CWD as the primary

threat to Vermont’s deer herd. For this reason, Vermont

is committed to preventing this disease by regulating the

movement of harvested deer into the state as well as being the

first state in the Northeast to ban the use of urine-based deer

lures.” said Mark Scott, wildlife director. “We remain dedicated

to protecting Vermont’s valuable deer herd for all

Vermonters to enjoy.”

“Hunters bringing deer or elk from any of the CWD-listed

states or provinces into or through Vermont must get them

processed according to the regulation before entering

Vermont.”

Scott also urges hunters to check Quebec’s latest hunting

laws because of CWD.

A fine of up to $1,000 and loss of hunting and fishing

licenses for one year are applicable for each deer or elk

imported illegally.

To prevent flooding on nearby roads and

allow some water to pass through the dam

without breaching it and destroying the wetland.

Vermont Youth Waterfowl Hunting, Sept. 28-29

A youngster’s first hunt can mark the

beginning of a lifelong passion for the outdoors

and a commitment to wildlife conservation.

There is no finer time to begin this

journey than during Vermont’s upcoming

youth waterfowl hunting weekend on

September 28 and 29.

“Vermont’s youth waterfowl hunting

weekend helps ensure that young hunters get

the quality training and experiences they

need for lifelong participation,” said Fish &

Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter. “By

design, the youth weekend hunt reinforces

the route of initiation that is critical in

recruitment -- learning from an experienced

adult role model.”

On September 28 and 29, hunters 17 years

of age or younger may hunt ducks and geese

in the Lake Champlain and Interior Vermont

waterfowl hunting zones. The age requirement

is 15 and under in the Connecticut

River zone.

The youth hunter must have a Vermont

hunting license and must be accompanied by

an unarmed adult, 18 years of age or older,

who also has a Vermont hunting license.

Youths 16 and 17 years of age must have state

and federal duck stamps. All youth hunters

must also register with the Harvest

Information Program (HIP) in each state

that they hunt. This can be done on Vermont

Phoenix Books Essex will welcome Nancy

their new book, Farming on the Wild Side.

Nancy and John run The Farm Between in

Jeffersonville.

Northern Vermont’s Nancy and John

Hayden have spent the last 25 years transforming

their draft horse–powered, organic

vegetable and livestock operation into an

agroecological, regenerative, biodiverse,

organic fruit farm, fruit nursery, and pollinator

sanctuary. In Farming on the Wild Side

they explain the philosophical and scientific

principles that influenced them as they

phased out sheep and potatoes and embraced

apples, pears, stone fruits, and a wide variety

of uncommon berry crops; turned much of

their property into a semi-wild state; and

adapted their marketing and sales strategies

to the new century. As the Haydens pursued

their goals of enhancing biodiversity and

regenerating their land, they incorporated

agroforestry and permaculture principles

into perennial fruit polycultures, a pollinator

sanctuary, repurposed greenhouses for

growing fruit, hügelkultur, and ecological

“pest” management. Beyond the practical

techniques and tips, this book also inspires

readers to develop greater ecological literacy

and respect for the mysteries of the global

ecosystem. Farming on the Wild Side tells a

story about new ways to manage small farms

and homesteads, about nurturing land, about

ecology, about economics, and about things

Stowe’s Brownsville Forest Conserved as

New Addition to State Forest

The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation

announced the addition of 758 acres to C.C. Putnam State

Forest in Stowe. As part of the State Forest, the Brownsville

Forest property, as the land is locally known, will be open to

the public and managed by the Department of Forests, Parks

and Recreation.

The Department’s acquisition of this land adds a large

block of forest land to C.C. Putnam State Forest, protects the

headwaters of Moss Glen Brook and multiple beaver ponds,

and provides opportunities for dispersed recreation along

the western flank of the Worcester Range. Looking at how

the property fits in the larger landscape, the Brownsville

Forest acquisition helps to protect a significant wildlife corridor

from the Worcester Range to the Northeast Kingdom.

Partnering with the Department of Forests, Parks and

Recreation, Stowe Land Trust made the acquisition possible

by facilitating the land transfer and raising the funds necessary

to purchase the property, which included a $5 million

anonymous donation through the Vermont Community

Foundation and a grant from the Vermont Housing and

Conservation Board. As a result of this partnership, Stowe

Land Trust and the Vermont Housing and Conservation

Board co-hold a conservation easement on the land. “Thanks

to the broad and deep support from the Stowe area community

and the hard work of our partners, this incredible property

is now protected and will be open for the public to enjoy

for generations to come,” said Stowe Land Trust executive

director, Kristen Sharpless. “It’s a fantastic outcome for the

land and our community.”

Work Together and Take Action to Reduce Carbon

During the Global Climate Strike and Climate Week

Green Mountain Power (GMP) is partnering

with customers and communities

across Vermont to help them with projects

to reduce carbon emissions during the

Global Climate Strike on September 20, and

will continue community initiatives through

September 27. GMP will work with the

communities where its 15 district offices are

located, to develop projects that support

their local carbon cutting actions.

GMP is also increasing incentives for that

week for customers to drive carbon out of

their homes and businesses, by increasing

rebates for electric vehicles, heat pumps and

electric bikes. Customers will be able to

qualify for up to $3,000 for EVs (up from

$2,500) if they’re low/moderate income and

up to $2,000 (up from $1,500) for other

GMP customers, $650 for heat pumps (up

from $400) and $250 for e-bikes (up from

$200). GMP is also launching a new $50

rebate for electric mowers that will continue

after Climate Week ends.

These programs, encouraged by the

state’s leaders and legislation, and reviewed

by regulators, help increase affordability and

predictability for Vermonters while helping

meet state decarbonization goals. When customers

choose to go electric it helps cut

carbon emissions because GMP’s power

supply is 60% renewable and 90% carbon

free. The switch also directly helps to cut

costs for all GMP customers.

GMP’s Business Innovation Programs

over the last two years alone have helped

GMP partner with Vermont companies on

projects that not only reduce their costs, but

will offset more than 200 million pounds of

carbon. “Without the help from GMP my

business wouldn’t be growing the way it is

now,” said Ben Hills, Owner of Flying Crow

Coffee in Springfield. “The switch to electric

roasting is huge for me, and knowing the

power is 90% carbon free is great,” Hills said.

There are other benefits to going electric.

According to Drive Electric Vermont, driving

an electric vehicle is cheaper than fueling

up with gas and maintenance costs are also

less over the lifetime of the vehicle, making

it a better option for many Vermonters. As

Affirming the importance of this acquisition, Forests,

Parks, and Recreation Commissioner Michael Snyder said,

“Protecting this gem for the public not only provides wonderful

benefits locally, but it also enhances a significant

statewide asset for all Vermonters and our guests to enjoy

forever. We’re deeply appreciative of Stowe Land Trust and

the surrounding community for their hard work to make this

happen.”

The Department will begin to manage the land as part of

the abutting C.C. Putnam State Forest and will include the

parcel in its long-range management plan for the Worcester

Range Management Unit, of which this property is now a

part. As this long-range planning process is under way, the

land will be open and available to the public for recreational

uses that are in keeping with protecting the area’s quiet and

remote character, and include hiking, hunting, skiing, snowshoeing,

and wildlife observation. The Department has

already begun assessing the condition of the property’s

access and existing trail network and has determined that a

portion of the trail network is in good condition and will be

open to the public for pedestrian use immediately. Although

mountain biking is a historic use on the property, the trails

do not currently meet standards for sustainable use. All trails

on the property will be closed to bikes until trails can be fully

assessed to determine suitability for mountain biking and

improvements can be made to meet industry standards for

mountain bike trails.

For more information about the Brownsville Forest property,

visit www.stowelandtrust.org.

part of the week, GMP employees will be

offering rides in their electric vehicles,

which represent a range of makes and models,

so people can try it out and learn the

benefits.

“You’re welcome to drive it - but don’t

drive it if you are not ready to trade, because

you are gonna want one,” said 91-year-old

GMP customer Harold Eastman. The

Colchester resident just purchased his second

EV, and lets anyone test drive his car

because he loves it so much.

“It is so exciting to see the progress we are

making in Vermont in partnership with customers.

All working together we can make a

difference in the fight against climate

change, while also offering programs that

drive down costs for all customers. GMP is

proud to partner with communities to assist

them with projects to reduce emissions,”

said Mary Powell, GMP President and CEO.

“The students who have led the Global

Climate Strike this past year are so inspiring

and we’re proud to do our part to support

their message and give back here in Vermont,

while maintaining great service for all of our

customers.”

GMP is also asking communities to apply

to win 40 trees that GMP employees will

plant, free of charge. GMP’s donations,

including the free trees, will be paid through

a charitable fund, and not by customers.

Communities can apply to win the free trees

– by writing a short essay outlining:

• Why the community wants the trees.

• What winning will mean for the community.

• How the community plans to care for the

trees, to ensure they continue to reduce carbon

for decades.

The essay should be emailed to kristin.

kelly@greenmountainpower.com by noon

on Monday, September 16. GMP will

announce the winning community and plant

the trees there on Friday, September 20 during

the Climate Week kick off. For people

wanting to sign up for the EV taxi-like rides

with GMP, please contact graham.turk@

Last Mile Ride Raises $120,000 for End-of-Life Care in Central Vermont

The 14th Annual Last Mile Ride drew record crowds to the

Gifford Green last weekend with 497 community members

walking, running, or riding to support end-of-life care and

special services for central Vermont patients and families.

The event, which included a 5K and family-friendly walk

Friday evening and a motorcycle ride Saturday, raised more

than $120,000, bringing the grand total to more than $880,000

raised since the inaugural LMR in 2006.

It was an emotional two days, as many in attendance participated

in honor of deceased loved ones or family and

friends experiencing advanced illness. Among them was

Eaton Snow of Brookfield, a longtime rider who took part in

Saturday’s opening ceremony from his hospital bed, which

had been wheeled outside by family and Gifford providers.

Unable to ride this year, Snow wished friends a safe journey.

“Eaton was a farmer turned milk truck driver whose quiet

nature includes always having a twinkle in his eyes,” said

Randolph resident Paul Donohue, who captured the moment

in photos he shared on Facebook. “[It was] as poignant and

emotional scene as I’ve witnessed in some time, full of love,

dignity and deep respect. This is why they ride.”

Participants and volunteers wore T-shirts in the event’s

signature orange and black, while others had custom team

T-shirts printed in memory of family members and friends

they had lost.

“Over the years we’ve become more than friends, we’ve

become family,” Gifford Development Director Ashley

Lincoln told the crowd during a barbecue lunch after

Saturday’s ride. “Together, we are a powerful force for good

in a world that can sometimes be disheartening.”

“Throughout the year I hear from folks who share with me

how your generosity has helped them or a member of their

family meet their unique needs during advanced illness or at

the end of life,” said Lincoln, describing the many ways LMR

funds are used, including to cover costs associated with

estate planning and funeral services, special events like weddings,

transportation for visiting family members or for

patients who require appointments with specialists outside

of the region, and more.

In addition to honoring loved ones, the weekend was a

celebration of community. Festivities included live music

Friday with Larry Brassard and the Bear Mountain Jammers,

a photo booth/selfie station for kids of all ages, cornhole on

the green, and food prepared by Gifford chefs and volunteers.

During Saturday’s barbecue lunch, a few hundred

people sang “Happy Birthday” as longtime rider and top

fundraiser Chip Milnor of Randolph was presented with a

cake.

The Results

Among Saturday’s top ride fundraisers were Milnor with

$11,990; Elizabeth Longworth with $2,985; Michael

Whitaker with $2,110; Todd Winslow with $1,900; and John

Holmes with $1,575.

veterans provided escort along the route. Together they covered

75 miles through Randolph, Bethel, Royalton,

Tunbridge, Chelsea, Barre, Williamstown, Brookfield, and

Honor America on Patriot Day

September 11, 2001, was a tragic day in American history.

On that day, nearly 3,000 innocent lives were lost due to the

terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. as

well as in rural Pennsylvania, where another plane en route

for more destruction crash-landed.

The indelible images of the World Trade Center collapsing

in flames with crowds running for safety, as well as the

ensuing visions of heroes and citizens working together, have

created a lasting impression.

While buildings have been repaired and new sites erected

in the wake of the attacks, there are many ways to continue to

honor the fallen. Patriot Day, which takes place each year on

September 11 to honor those who lost their lives in the 9-11

attacks, is one such example. The following are a handful of

ways that people can honor 9-11 victims and their families.

• Celebrate local heroes by visiting or making donations of

food or supplies to local firehouses and police stations.

• Commemorate the events of 9-11 by observing moments of

silence at key times throughout the day: 8:46 a.m, 9:03 a.m.,

9:37 a.m., 9:59 a.m., 10:03 a.m., and 10:28 a.m.

• Engage in service projects that can help your community,

including its under-served individuals, like veterans. National

Day of Service, which is the same day as Patriot Day, asks

people to do at least one good deed in honor of those who

died on 9-11.

• Make a trip to New York City and visit the National September

11 Memorial & Museum.

• If you display a flag at your home or business, be sure to

place it at half staff from sunrise to sunset to mourn the lives

lost.

• Share stories of the heroism and bravery of first responders

with young children who may not have been alive in 2001.

• Unite the country by promoting acceptance of and kindness

to all people, regardless of religious or political beliefs.

• Attend a special service commemorating 9-11 at houses of

worship.

• Visit memorials honoring the fallen in various communities

in and around your home.

This Patriot Day, there are many ways individuals can honor

those who lost their lives on 9-11.

Editor’s Note: The Patriot Day celebrated on September

11 is a separate holiday from Patriot’s Day, which is observed

on the third Monday in April in Massachusetts.

My New Leaf Blower

By G. E. Shuman

Early in the summer my dear wife,

who seems to enjoy filling my need

for a new toy occasionally, bought

me a leaf blower. Mine is not an over the

top, gas-powered, blow the lawn furniture

away blower; it’s a nice, fairly quiet, lightweight, rechargeable

machine.

For years I’ve seen other guys around the neighborhood

using leaf blowers but have never been interested in having

one. I always considered them to be just another gimmicky

waste of money that probably worked about half as well as

claimed. I mean, how could you go up against a Vermont

wind with any device you could carry around? Boy, was I

wrong!

Truthfully, I have loved the little thing from the first time I

tried it. Though electric, it is really very powerful, and I guess

I need to get used to the idea that electric cars, airplanes,

dump trucks, and school buses all work as well with a stream

of electrons as their power source as they once did only with

a stream of gasoline. That’s all okay with me, as long as my

first electric car performs as well as my new toy does.

No joke, (Okay, maybe a little joke.) I think the claimed

130 mph wind force this tool produces could easily blow the

fleas right off your dog’s back and onto the neighbor’s cat at

twenty paces, if you could separate your dog from the neighbor’s

cat by twenty paces.

I haven’t yet had the opportunity to blow many actual

leaves with my new leaf blower. I have, several times, blown

all the dirt off our long front porch floor and stripped every

grain of sand, broken twig, blade of grass, and peanut shell,

(Yes, I feed peanuts to the squirrels.) from under our carport.

Clai Lasher-Sommers

Executive Director, GunSense Vermont

Another series of mass shootings – this time in Dayton,

El Paso, Mobile, and Odessa – ushered in the

expected “thoughts and prayers” from elected officials

across the nation. 40 people were killed and 73 more

were injured over the span of just a few weeks in those four

shootings alone. The usual, performative hand wringing

began, and quickly subsided. Gun violence prevention was

discussed only as far as it was politically expedient and not a

second longer.

Once again, we are burying the dead, nursing the wounded,

and trying to comfort the living. Once again we are fully

equipped with the solution, yet held hostage by the gun lobby.

What is abundantly clear is that we cannot expect leadership

from Washington to tackle the issue of gun violence.

Thankfully though, Vermont leaders have, at times, shown

a willingness to stand up to the corporate gun lobby. 2018 saw

a suite of common-sense gun violence prevention measures

passed through the legislature and signed by our governor.

In contrast, this past year was an incredible disappointment

as Governor Scott suddenly fell back in line with the

corporate gun lobby, vetoing a waiting period bill that the

data shows would save lives. I know the governor values the

lives of Vermonters. My hope is that he will come back in

2020 ready to buck the gun lobby and do right by his constituents.

The legislature has shown great tenacity and I applaud

their outspoken commitment to passing gun violence reforms

when they return to the state house in January. Hopefully

this time the governor will do the right thing: sign gun

safety legislation and save lives.

Passing a 72-hour waiting period to purchase any gun and

closing the Charleston Loophole are two meaningful steps

that Vermont legislators should take when they return to

the state house in January that would make our state and

country a safer place. While many are no doubt familiar with

the concept of waiting periods, the Charleston Loophole

remains relatively obscure. Under current law, people who

buy a gun from a licensed dealer have to go through a background

check. The FBI has up to three days to complete this

check. But if it doesn’t complete the check during this time

period, gun dealers are allowed to sell the firearm anyway.

This loophole allowed a white supremacist to purchase the

gun he used to kill nine people at a black church in Charleston,

South Carolina in 2015.

We all know what we have to do, but to do it our leaders

must show courage and listen to the majority of Vermonters

rather than the gun lobby. Because the majority of Vermonters

want gun safety legislation. Poll after poll backs this up.

Vermonters, like Americans everywhere, have had enough.

Enough of the fear, the bloodshed, the dead, the wounded,

and the excuses. We want our children, our families and our

neighbors to live without fear of being shot. We want to continue

the great tradition Vermont has of leading the country,

of being brave in the face of adversity, and of choosing our

people over special interests.

It’s very satisfying to me, to get these things done without a

broom, shovel, rake, or backache being involved.

One time recently, (Please don’t tell my wife.) I actually

opened the kitchen door and blew all the sand from the tile

floor back out onto the driveway, where it belongs. (No one

ever called me stupid. Okay, well, maybe a few people have.)

So far, as said, I have blown away few leaves, but can hardly

wait to do so. If the leaves don’t fall soon, I might just point

the blower up at our trees and hurry them along a bit. I’ve

been thinking that if all leaf blower enthusiasts in Vermont

(Okay, a better word might be owners. I’m probably the only

enthusiast.) did the same, perhaps we’d hurry the season

along a bit too, and end up with an early spring. No, huh?

Still, that does give me another idea. Don’t be surprised if

you drive by my house some dark night this winter and see

me out in the driveway, leaf blower raised high, coaxing the

gently falling snow over onto the neighbor’s cat.


Vermont Launches Data-Driven Review of State’s Criminal Justice System

The Justice Reinvestment II Working Group, which was

created by Governor Phil Scott in Executive Order 03-19,

held its first meeting on August 26 to begin a data-driven

approach to analyze and address challenges in the state’s

adult criminal justice system.

The review is part of Vermont’s participation in the Justice

Reinvestment Initiative, a federally funded process aimed at

helping states get maximum value out of their corrections

spending and reinvest in strategies that can reduce recidivism

and increase public safety.

The working group spans all three branches of state government

and will be chaired by Supreme Court Chief Justice

Paul Reiber. Members include representatives from the

departments of corrections, health, mental health and public

safety, the legislature, the attorney general’s office, the

ACLU of Vermont and the Vermont Network Against

Domestic and Sexual Violence, as well as the executive

director of racial equity and executive director of state’s

attorneys and sheriffs.

“Vermont has been a leader in pursuing policy interventions

that improve public safety and public health outcomes

for our citizens, and this work is particularly important as

the opioid epidemic continues to impact our state,” Governor

Scott said. “This initiative will ensure we build on progress

while providing a detailed picture of criminal justice trends

to help us establish a coordinated response to Vermont’s

most critical public safety concerns.”

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center

presented its initial analyses of the state’s criminal justice

system. The briefing showed that Vermont’s prison population

remains over capacity despite recent decreases, and

although the state has historically maintained one of the lowest

crime rates in the country, its overall violent crime rate

increased 33 percent between 2007 and 2017.

“Justice Reinvestment will help identify ways to leverage

and elevate our use of data,” said Senator Dick Sears, chair of

the Senate Judiciary Committee and a CSG Justice Center

advisory board member. “Through this knowledge, we can

ensure resources are being used effectively and that we’re

advancing policies that improve the quality of life for all

Vermonters.”

CSG Justice Center staff also found that 80 percent of the

total population under state correctional control is on probation

or parole supervision. Despite that hefty portion, the

state is currently unable to identify certain key data, including

how many people on probation are revoked to jail or

prison, what types of violations people are revoked for and

their length of stay when they return.

Impossible Whopper

The Beginning of the End of Factory

Farms

We look back at America before the 13th Amendment with

shame and confusion.

We wonder how intelligent, civilized people could live that

way, tolerating and profiting from exploitation and evil.

Not too far in the future, that’s exactly how our descendants

will look at us and the era of Factory Farms.

The few people who try to defend Factory Farms cite the

biblical precedent of godly humans dominating the beasts of

the earth and owning animals as a matter of course.

And indeed that IS a splendid defense of animal husbandry.

I have no problem with people owning animals. My sister

has chickens and ducks in her backyard and they lead decent

lives. They have a place to roam. They get meal worm treats.

They get love and cuddles if they want.

Factory Farms take something wholesome and spin it into

a tortuous abomination. Factory Farm animals don’t get a

name or love or a moment of consideration as to their comfort

or dignity.

When I am considering buying something with meat because

it is quick and cheap, I imagine that St. Peter were a pig

or cow. That puts things in perspective for me. It reminds me

that the food I was about to buy is clearly not worth the moral

cost. I doubt St. Peter is actually a cow. But he may well be a

pescatarian, and I know that he agrees that buying Factory

produced meat isn’t morally defensible.

The obvious cruelty of Factory Farms will not be their undoing,

however. Environmentalism will ultimately save the

day. Eventually, a sincere Green Party will take power in the

United States and it will ban Factory Farms due to their environmental

impact.

Mass-produced meat is an inefficient use of arable land and

fresh water. That is the ultimate fact that will doom Factory

Farms to the dust bin of history where they belong.

As an animal rights supporter, I have mixed feelings about

this. It is like environmentalists oppose another Holocaust…

• • •

• • •

“People being revoked from their probation or parole is

often a key driver of state prison population growth, but

their impact in Vermont is unclear,” said Representative

Alice Emmons, chair of the House Committee on Corrections

and Institutions. “We need to understand how our state

responds to parole and probation violations and whether

that response is adversely affecting our prison system.”

Senator Alice Nitka, vice chair of the Senate Judiciary

Committee, added that “Justice Reinvestment initially

allowed Vermont to avert prison growth and decrease our

prison population, but it’s clear there is still work to do. This

latest effort will provide a comprehensive understanding of

how people are moving through the criminal justice system,

which is critical to addressing the underlying causes of

criminal behavior.”

Justice Reinvestment will also examine the intersection of

the criminal justice system and the opioid crisis. Like many

other states, Vermont has battled significant issues related to

overdose deaths. Between 2007 and 2017, the state’s drug

overdose death rate increased 115 percent—from 10.8 deaths

per 100,000 residents to 23.2 deaths. Multiple studies have

indicated that people with opioid addictions who are

released from prison or jail face a significantly higher risk of

overdose and overdose-related death.

“The justice system is at the forefront of the opioid crisis,

and every day too many people end up before us as a result

of substance addiction,” said Supreme Court Chief Justice

Paul Reiber. “If we’re going to make a difference in the lives

of people who struggle with addiction, we need to address

the challenges at the intersection of the criminal justice system

and the opioid epidemic.”

Representative Maxine Grad, chair of the House Judiciary

Committee, added that “the success of this project depends

on people who work on the front lines of the criminal justice

and behavioral health systems sharing input, priorities and

best practices. This is a collaborative effort with all three

branches of government to develop recommendations for

next year’s legislative session so we can deliver results for the

people of Vermont.”

but only because my dead body would pollute a river.

Hey, I’m so glad you are on my side. We need all the allies

we can get. But – yikes – we believe in our cause for very different

reasons.

That brings me to the Impossible Whopper. No matter

how bad the meat industry is for the planet, people are only

going to let the environmentalists ban Factory Farms when

science has come up with a decent fake meat. And, happily,

that day has come.

I have eaten a few Impossible Whoppers. And I can report

that they are perfectly fine. They are edible and mediocre –

just like any other burger.

That’s the absurd tragedy of Factory Farms. Hundreds of

millions of animals are being tortured so we can eat boring

food that is not particularly tasty or nourishing.

If a master chef wants to serve her award-winning filet mignon,

she should still do it. She just needs to have a little farm

behind her restaurant with a few pet cows. As for McDonald’s,

it could switch from mediocre Big Macs to mediocre

veggie Big Macs and we practically wouldn’t know the difference.

But history would know the difference.

Lincoln, Grant, and the Union soldiers are remembered

as heroes to this day because they sacrificed to defend those

who couldn’t defend themselves. Someday, those who work

to eliminate Factory Farms will be remembered as the greatest

heroes of the mid-21st Century.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It

might not be wise to pursue goals

involving others, unless you can

stop impulsively rejecting new

ideas. Either open your mind or

wait until next week, when this “ornery” mood passes.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a good time for the

Bovine to be creative and practical for yourself and your

surroundings. Shop wisely, not impulsively, and keep

your Bull’s eye focused on quality, not quantity.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You should feel more confident

about moving ahead with plans that had to be delayed

by an unexpected turn of events. Also, family matters

might need more time than first anticipated.

CANCER ( June 21 to July 22) Be considerate of others

as you move into a new area in your professional life.

Take time to meet people and discuss mutual goals. The

more you get to know each other, the better.

LEO ( July 23 to August 22) Creating a fuss could get

your ideas noticed quickly. But it would be best to present

your case, and then wait for a reaction to follow in

due course, rather than try to force it to happen.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Unkept promises

might cause plans to go awry this week. You can either

grumble about people “letting you down” or find a way

to make the best of it and move on. The choice is yours.

SEPTEMBER BIRTHDAY PLANNER | THE WORLD

Birthday Party Pointers to Make Kids, Parents Happy

Childhood is filled with many mem

orable moments. mong the more

memorable are childrens birthday

parties. uring their childrens

formative years, parents may wrestle with

ideas, themes, etiuette, and more as they

plan birthday parties to remember. osting

birthday parties that touch on all the right

notes can be easier if parents follow a hand

ful of strategies that many parents have been

employing for years.

• Involve your child. Chances are your son or daughter has

been plotting out ideas for his or her party since last year’s

festivities ended. Ask questions about what he or she would

like to do this year. Seek your child’s input on the guest list

and preferred theme. Playing an active roll in party planning

can make kids even more excited about their birthday parties.

• Focus on fun and making your child feel special. Some

parents feel birthday parties must be expensive and allencompassing

bashes. But many children simply want parties

that allow them to participate in an activity they enjoy, eat

sweets and share the experience with their closest friends.

Recognizing this can help parents keep their workloads and

budgets in check.

• Trim the guest list. Parents should not feel the need to invite

every acquaintance to their children’s birthday parties. Parents

understandably don’t want to exclude or offend anyone

by leaving them off the guest list. However, try to limit the

guests to around 10, including the guest of honor. This makes

the entire party more manageable.

• Keep it quiet. Make sure your child avoids bragging about

the party at school or at extracurricular activities. Doing so

many offend those classmates who are not on the guest list.

Send invites directly to homes rather than distributing them

at school so that no one feels excluded.

Horoscopes continued from previous page

kindness on your part could take on special meaning this

week. Also, look for signs of upcoming changes in both your

personal and professional relationships.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Many of the

tougher communication barriers between you and others in

the workplace or at home could begin breaking down this

week. Expect some surprises to emerge.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your “tough

love” attitude toward someone you care for could be misunderstood.

Try to be less judgmental and show more consideration

in the way you relate to that person.

AQUARIUS ( January 20 to February 18) An unexpected

workplace challenge could be daunting. But take what you

know (and you know more than you realize) and apply it to

the problem, and you should see positive results.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Recent relationship

changes for both single and paired Pisces continue to influence

much of your week. Keep your focus on developing the

positive aspects as you move along.

BORN THIS WEEK: You set your goals with assurance

and influence others to follow suit. You

would be an excellent philosopher and teacher.

(c) 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Develop backup plans. There’s no accounting for the

weather, illness, venue cancellations, or food flops. Always

have a plan B (and, ideally, a plan C and plan D) so that the

kids can stay entertained.

• Encourage drop-and-go. Hosting young children can be

stressful. And when parents attend the party as well, entertaining

duties expand to an entirely different level. Recruit

another helper or two and be sure parents know you are comfortable

with them not staying for the party. They may even

appreciate your looking after their children for a few hours.

• • •

• Plan for additional guests. Part of planning for the unexpected

includes being able to accommodate a few extra children.

You never know when a sibling will have to tag along

or a last-minute invite pops up, so keep some extra snacks

and favors on hand just in case.

• Open gifts after guests leave. Opening gifts is time-consuming,

and young children may not be adept at filtering

their comments. No one should go home feeling their gift

was not appreciated.

Planning for a Fun, Successful Celebration

Celebrations are a large part of people’s lives. Many people

commemorate key moments — from birthdays to anniversaries

to graduations — with parties. While celebrations

may seem like a fine idea, there’s no denying that throwing a

party where everyone has fun requires a lot of work.

When planning a party, hosts must consider a number

of factors, including their budgets. While guests are a key

ingredient to fun, successful parties, hosts can take the following

steps to further increase their chances of throwing a

bash to remember.

• Start planning early. A party-planning checklist can help

hosts stay organized and ensure that even the smallest detail

isn’t forgotten. Writing ideas down on paper and having

a tangible checklist can make it much easier to organize a

party.

• Pick a theme for cohesion. Party themes need not include

something over the top, such as costumes. The right theme

can be as simple as choosing a color scheme or uniting element

that connects all of the components of the party. Once

you have a theme in mind, you can start compiling all of the

details and supplies, which can make shopping easier and

more efficient.

• Create a festive atmosphere. Think about the ways you can

enliven the atmosphere to make it more inviting for guests.

Appeal to guests’ senses by employing lighting, sound and

scents. One easy way to set the tone for the party is to have

a well-thought-out playlist that’s timed to coordinate with

the elements of your party. Keep music low at the start of the

party and during the meal to facilitate conversation. As the

party progresses, increase the volume of the music and select

music with an upbeat tempo.

• Create a guest book. Give guests the opportunity to share

their sentiments no matter the event. Place a guest book

where guests can easily see it, and encourage them to jot

down a few words for the guest(s) of honor. This can serve

as a nice memento in the years to come.

• Offer a self-serve bar. A self-serve bar cuts down on the

work hosts must do. Be sure to keep an eye on guests’ alcohol

consumption, and have a plan in place to help guests who

might overindulge. Keep the contact information for local

taxi companies handy just in case a guest needs a ride home.

“Rocketman” (R) -- It’s a

musical. But if you’re

thinking it will be along

the lines of 2018’s

“Bohemian Rhapsody,”

the opening scene will

dispel you of that notion

immediately. Taron Egerton stars as Elton John -- and

yes, he’s doing the singing, and wow! The emotional

journey has humble beginnings: Elton John-to-be is

Reginald Dwight, a sweet boy with a cold father, a narcissistic

mother and a talent for the piano, fostered by his

grandmother. What follows is his establishment as a

musician, his partnership with lyricist Bernie Taupin

( Jamie Bell) and eventually a meteoric rise as a groundbreaking

performer who pushed the limits of the word

ostentatious. The songs are great and well-performed,

and the cast is lovely.

“Secret Life of Pets 2” (PG) -- Just when the neurotic

Max (now voiced by Patton Oswalt) was getting used to

another dog in the family, along comes a baby to look

after! When his family sets off for a visit to the country, a

sheepdog named Rooster (Harrison Ford) teaches Max

to find his inner courage in the face of change. Back at

home, Snowball the bunny (Kevin Hart), now a pet with

delusions of being a superhero, pairs with a Shi Tzu

named Daisy (Tiffany Haddish) to rescue an adorable

white tiger named Hu. Meanwhile Gidget ( Jenny Slate),

a high-energy Pomeranian, hilariously must transform

herself into a cool cat to recover Max’s prized Busy Bee.

All these storylines converge in a chuckle fest of an ending

that the kids will mightily enjoy.

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” (PG-13) -- A battle of

both monsters and ecological viewpoints, “King of the

Monsters” follows the efforts of a fringe wing of scientists

who seek to unleash the power of the Titans -- ancient,

mountain-sized monsters -- in a dubious plot to heal the

planet. When a three-headed alpha Titan is loosed from

an icy stronghold, it will take a Titan to take it down.

Enter Godzilla. Interspersed among monster battles, it

stars Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler as Emma and Mark

Russell, divorced scientists with opposed philosophies,

and Millie Bobby Brown as their conflicted daughter.

POETRY CORNER

So Much – Part II

By Kimberly Madura

For D.

Once upon a time

there were two

there was so much between them,

no one on the outside

would ever understand

And now it is autumn, years later

and all that there is

so much of, is tremendous pain

Then comes a reckoning

a permanent ending

between one who asserted moral integrity

and one who is lost

Now it is finished,

complete.

And they did not

live happily ever after,

after all.

What Remains

By Kimberly Madura

So much is lost, so much has changed

I am most interested in what still remains

Some things were lost to time,

Some to chaos, others to indifference

Most difficult of all was what was lost in pain

But then there still is what remains

Mass Killings

By Todd Washburne

Oh what pain!

Oh the horror of mass murder!

Why I ask myself?

Why the hatred towards one another?

Why are we feeding extremists through the media and the net?

It is the fuel they need to inflame their hate filled brains.

How can one love their own children and then,

Filled with unreasonable hatred towards anyone that is not white,

Kill and kill and kill again?

Mothers and their beloved children murdered.

How, I ask myself, can anyone look in the mirror

And not see the reflection of insanity and evil?

My Dirty Chores

By Todd Washburne

I live in Calais on a farm

It is not a very big farm.

The animals are plentiful.

We have cows, goats, pigs, ducks, and

Chickens of many breeds and lay different color eggs

Duck, ducks,

You waddle and quack and chase everyone.

What great guard dogs!

But they are ducks and I have to feed them.

So come on over and duck is on the top of the menu!

The cows stink and I have to feed them, and

Clean the damn stalls and listen to their farts.

And I will enjoy the next steak thinking of them!

The pigs are pigs. They lay in their own slop.

Slop is garbage that is left out for them to eat,

Now doesn’t that sound appetizing?

Yum, yum let’s eat some bacon.

Goats, goats are noisy and really useless.

They run all over eating this and that,

And poop everywhere.

We do not drink their ilk as the taste of it

Is almost as bad as their smell.

So goats why do I feed you?

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.

Things to consider before warming up next

to your first fire this winter

A fi replace can be a great place for families to gather.

warm fire can make even the coldest winter day more enjoyable. Fireplaces may not

get much use in spring or summer, but come late fall and throughout the winter, the

Before fireplace season hits full swing, homeowners

might want to brush up on a few fireplace facts so they can

safely enjoy nights spent sitting by the crackling flames.

The Chimney Safety Institute of America advises homeowners

with fireplaces to hire a CSIA-certified chimney

sweep to clean their fireplaces. After a lengthly period of

non-use, various issues could be affecting the chimney,

many of which might not be noticeable to an untrained

eye. Professional, certified chimney sweeps have extensive

knowledge of fireplaces, making them valuable resources

who can let homeowners know if any safety issues developed

since fireplaces were last used. The National Protection

Agency recommends that chimneys be swept at least

once per year.

A full inspection of the chimney might be in order as

well. Chimney service technicians will conduct thorough

examinations of readily accessible portions of the chimney

exterior and interior and accessible portions of the appliance

and the chimney connection. The CSIA recommends

that homeowners who plan to use their chimneys as they

have in the past request a Level 1 inspection, which will

examine the soundness of the chimney structure and flue

as well as the basic appliance installation and connections.

Technicians also will verify if the chimney is free of obstruction

and combustible deposits.

• • •

Homeowners also should inspect their chimney dampers

before lighting their first fires of the season. Dampers

should open and close smoothly. If not, a service technician

can help fix or replace the damper.

Firewood is another thing homeowners must consider

before lighting their first fires of the season. The CSIA says

that well-seasoned firewood works best, noting that wood

that is not well-seasoned will produce more smoke than

heat. In addition, the home improvement resource This Old

House recommends using dense wood that’s been split and

stored in a high and dry place for at least six months. Oak is

an example of dense wood that, when stored properly, can

make for an enjoyable fireplace experience. Avoid softwoods

like pine. Pine can produce a lot of creosote, which

is a byproduct of wood combustion. Creosote is highly

flammable, and as it builds up in a chimney, the risk for a

chimney fire increases. Choosing the right wood, making

sure it’s well-seasoned and having a chimney professionally

cleaned can reduce the risk of a creosote-related chimney

fire. A Level 1 inspection should determine if there are

potentially dangerous levels of creosote deposits in the

chimney.

Before nestling up to a fireplace this winter, homeowners

should consider a host of factors and safety measures to ensure

their fireplaces are safe and ready for the season ahead.


PET OF THE WEEK

Meet Willow! She is a really sweet cat who

has come out of her shell and no longer hides

under the bed. She loves to be petted and to

play with her toys. Recently, Willow caught

two mice that came into the house, so she

might be a good mouser. She is still shy

around new people. She can be quite vocal

at times. Her long fur and pretty markings

make Willow a very gorgeous gal! She

probably needs to be in a quiet house, with

perhaps another cat for company.

‘Blue John’ Stone

Prices for antiques and collectibles are determined by

many things that change with time -- age, availability, condition,

decorative value, fame of maker, artist or past owner,

and even who is bidding and if there is a bidding war. Most

of these things change with time, so rare Beanie Babies that

cost hundreds of dollars for the few years they were in

demand are sold today in a dump display for a few dollars.

In the early 18th century, an attractive new stone was

found in Treack Cliff Cavern near Derbyshire, England. It

was a rare form of the mineral fluorite with bands of purplish-blue

or yellow. It came to be called “Blue John.”

Matthew Boulton, a famous manufacturer in the 1700s,

made many urns and other decorative objects using Blue

John. The stone became a symbol of British art and was

wanted by the elite. Recently, a new vein of Blue John was

found, the fifteenth known, and new jewelry and objects are

being made. A pair of antique Blue John and rock crystal

obelisks recently auctioned for $2,176.

***

Q: At an antiques show in Pennsylvania, I saw a small

quilt that was labeled a “privy bag.” Of course I know what

a privy is, but I’ve never heard of a fancy bag used to hold

toilet paper in an outhouse. I have a bet with my husband

that it is dealer’s joke term.

A: You lose. There are references online dating back to

2010 for books and exhibits in Pennsylvania that feature

quilted privy bags made to hold toilet paper. Some examples

were at a recent show and one was priced $995. There

are other kinds, some embroidered, some from fancy fabric

and some just reusable cloth food sacks. The quilted ones

have almost all been reported from the Lancaster,

Pennsylvania, area.

Privy toilet paper often was pages of the old Sears and

Roebuck catalog, or squares of newsprint that were stored

on a large nail. A decorative holder was crocheted in the

1920s-’30s from directions in some sewing magazines. A

full, round, colorful crocheted skirt was made to fit a small

doll. The legs of the doll were stuffed into the cardboard

center and the skirt covered the paper. It was kept near the

seating area. A few outhouses left in the United States today

are in camping and hiking areas. The parks furnish a portable

biodegradable kit that is carried out of the park at the

end of the hike.

NOW HERE’S A TIP

By JoAnn Derson

* Mirrors make a room feel larger, because

they reflect space, essentially doubling

the visual area. But for maximum impact,

experts say to hang your mirror on the wall adjacent to your

window, not across from it.

* Lunchbox season is here, finally. If you have an issue with

odors remaining in your plastic food containers, here’s a fix

from B.P. in Alabama: “Fill container with hot water, and

add a teaspoon of baking soda. This should remove smells.

Let sit overnight if necessary.”

* Here’s a way to remove stickers, especially ones that don’t

tear off. Rub labels with straight white vinegar or soak a

paper napkin with vinegar and lay it over the label. Let it sit

for 10 minutes, then remove. You should be able to rub the

adhesive right off. Reapply if necessary.

* Whether you recycle because of global warming, landfill

overload or environmental issues, the planet thanks you. But

remember that recycling is only one part of going green.

“Reduce” and “re-use” are just as important. Choose products

with less packaging. Have small appliances fixed instead

of automatically replacing them. And keep recycling.

Thunder Road, ACT Announce Labor Day Make-Up Date

Thunder Road and American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials

have announced that the 41st Coca-Cola Labor Day

Classic has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 14 at

5:00pm. The event had been postponed this past Sunday

following an on-track accident that occurred during qualifying.

As part of the rescheduling, Thunder Road’s Barre Granite

Association Championship Night has been moved to Sunday,

September 22 at 1:30pm. All Thunder Road track champions

will be crowned at that event as previously planned.

However, the post-race pit party that was scheduled for

Championship Night will remain on September 14 as part of

the Labor Day Classic schedule. Thunder Road will now

officially celebrate its 60th season of racing following its oldest

event – one that began in the track’s inaugural season of

1960.

Much of the Coca-Cola Labor Day Classic remains to be

completed. Several qualifying races are still on tap of the
