VSECU, Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston

Award $100,000 in Grants to Vermont Nonprofits

VSECU is distributing $100,000 in grants

to seven Vermont nonprofits significantly

impacted by COVID-19. Ranging from

$5,000 to $25,000, the grants will help preserve

and create job opportunities, support

local economic development, and further

important community services.

The grants are funded by Federal Home

Loan Bank of Boston’s Jobs for New England

Recovery Grant program. The program was

specifically created in 2020 to provide member

financial institutions with grants to support

local small businesses and nonprofit

organizations experiencing significant losses

because of the pandemic.

“VSECU is always looking for ways to

support our members, create an inclusive

economy, and help our local communities

prosper,” said Gregory Huysman, VSECU’s

director of business lending and services.

“We are grateful to FHLBank Boston for

being such a great community partner and

helping us increase our impact on Vermonters’

quality of life. We look forward to our continued

partnership through FHLBank Boston

programs.”

“We are pleased that VSECU was able to

successfully access grant funding through the

Jobs for New England Recovery Grant

Program to support and provide some financial

relief to organizations that are contributing

to the overall health and well-being of

Vermont residents,” said Kenneth Willis,

senior vice president, director of housing and

community investment at FHLBank Boston.

“Too many local businesses and nonprofit

organizations have experienced severe hardship

because of the pandemic, so we are

proud that we have been able to offer some

assistance.”

Grant recipients include the Vermont

Performing Arts League, Central Vermont

Humane Society, Vermont Council on Rural

Development (VCRD), The Center for Arts

and Learning, Vermont Employee Ownership

Center (VEOC), Washington County Youth

Service, and Catamount Film and Arts.

“An organization like ours is based on the

principle of people coming together as a

group to learn, experience and interact with

others in the ways they choose. We suddenly

had to reinvent the ways we do everything to

continue our mission safely through this pandemic,”

said April Werner, executive director

of the Vermont Performing Arts League. “It

caused significant financial strain on us and

finding out that VSECU was aware of our

struggles—and wanted to help!—was an

unanticipated and heartwarming surprise.”

“We are so grateful to receive this generous

grant,” said Laurie Garrison, executive director

of the Central Vermont Humane Society.

“We take in and care for over 1,000 pets a

year, and this grant will significantly increase

our capacity to help animals and people at a

time when it is urgently needed.”

“We deeply appreciate the support of the

• • •

Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, and

VSECU, for our work in COVID recovery,

building community leadership and advancing

economic development that contributes to

climate solutions,” said Paul Costello, executive

director at VCRD. “Vermonters are

standing up to lead local recovery efforts

today, and their work and leadership can be a

springboard to economic renewal and a resilient

future.”

“During the pandemic, we have seen one of

our founding partners, River Rock School,

close its doors for good,” said Alice Dodge,

executive director for The Center for Arts and

Learning. “This grant will make a tremendous

difference helping us make up for the

impact of that long-term loss to our community

and our income, as we find new partners

and develop new programs that will use their

space. It means we can keep offering studios

to local artists and musicians, and it will help

us find the best and safest ways to support our

creative community through this difficult

time.”

“Every day vulnerable youth turn to us for

help with crises and challenges in their lives,”

said Kreig Pinkham, executive director for

the Washington County Youth Service

Bureau. “This important grant will help

ensure that we are here when they need us

with counseling, emergency shelter, housing

supports, substance use treatment, support as

they transition out of foster care, and more.”

“This FHLBank Boston grant funding will

provide critical capital needed to adapt our

facility, which is currently closed to the public,

to the new COVID-19 reality,” said Jody

Fried, executive director of Catamount Film

and Arts, which supports over 3,000 artists

and creatives throughout the Northeast

Kingdom.

About FHLBank Boston

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston is

a cooperatively owned wholesale bank for

housing finance in the six New England

states. Its mission is to provide highly reliable

wholesale funding and liquidity to its member

financial institutions in New England. The

Bank also develops and delivers competitively

priced financial products, services, and

expertise that support housing finance, community

development, and economic growth,

including programs targeted to lower-income

households.

The Vermont Chief Superior Judge and the

Vermont State Court Administrator announced

a delay in the restart of criminal jury trials

scheduled to begin in the Windham unit of the

Vermont Superior Court in Brattleboro on

December 7. The delay is in response to a

recent significant increase in COVID-19

cases in Vermont, which is expected to continue

in the coming days and weeks. Chief

Superior Judge Brian Grearson and Vermont

State Court Administrator Patricia Gabel,

Esq. made the decision to postpone the restart

in consultation with Judge John Treadwell,

who would have presided over the trial.

“We are disappointed to delay this critical

component of our democracy—the right to a

trial by a jury of one’s peers—however, the

safety and wellbeing of all is critical; that is

why we have determined that now is not the

time to restart this work,” said the Honorable

Karen R. Carroll, Associate Justice of the

Vermont Supreme Court and co-chair of a

committee formed to restart jury trials safely

during the pandemic.

The Supreme Court directed the State

Court Administrator and Chief Superior

Judge to develop an implementation plan

based on the recommendations informed by

the Jury Restart Committee, which included

judicial officers, a court manager, a state’s

attorney, a public defender and a civil practitioner.

That work has been ongoing for

months to be sure the courts can operate inperson

as safely and efficiently as possible.

The state recently engaged Erin Bromage,

PhD, an infectious disease specialist and professor

at University of Massachusetts

Dartmouth, to conduct an assessment and

suggest best practices for both Vermont’s

physical court facilities and its planned procedures.

Bromage said the Windham County

Court was on track with modifications necessary

for a safe restart.

“For important court proceedings, we can

go forward with changes to our workflow and

some changes to the infrastructure; most of

those things can be done fairly simply,” he

related.

While the court has made many such

changes and was poised to draw a jury for its

first trial, recent COVID-19 case numbers

caused judicial leaders to postpone until the

courts can more confidently ensure the safety

of jurors, trial participants, and court staff.

“It is critical that all of us work together to

reduce our contact with others and slow the

spread of the virus. We’ve done it before, and

we can do it again. When this latest wave is

behind us, the Judiciary will again look to

restart in-person jury trials safely,” Justice

Carroll concluded.

Detail regarding the steps the Judiciary is

taking to promote safe operations during the

pandemic is available on the COVID-19 page

of the Judiciary’s website at www.vermontjudiciary.org/COVID19.

Information about

being called for jury duty, serving as a juror,

requesting a deferral from jury service for

medical or other reasons, and about court

operations and plans is available on these

pages. This information will be updated as

conditions warrant.

Working Communities

Challenge Awards $1.9

Million In Grants to Four

Vermont Communities

Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric Rosengren

and Governor Phil Scott announced that the Springfield area,

Greater Barre, Lamoille County and Winooski are the recipients

of $300,000 grants as part of the Boston Fed’s Working

Communities Challenge. The program includes more than

$700,000 in additional planning and action grants for

Vermont communities, and aims to strengthen the economies

of rural towns and smaller cities. The competition officially

launched in Vermont in 2019 with state, private sector and

not-for-profit support.

Each of the four communities will receive the grants over

three years to support programs designed to bolster economic

equality and workforce development across these

regions of the state.

“Congratulations to each of these communities for putting

together proposals designed to address significant needs in

their unique regions,” Rosengren said. “This is just the start

of a lot of hard work on behalf of the residents in these communities.

I look forward to working with these teams and

following their progress over the coming years.”

• Springfield seeks to increase workforce participation to

combat generational poverty and help residents support

themselves and their families.

• Greater Barre looks to lower the rate of single female

head of households in poverty by 15% in 10 years.

• Lamoille County plans to tackle systemic barriers to

employment and improve workforce transitions in order to

lower the county’s unemployment rate by 2024 and create a

more diversified economy.

• Winooski aims to establish systems to lift underrepresented

voices and involve the area’s diverse population in

decision-making and community dialogue.

“I want to congratulate the four winners we’re announcing

today and thank the Boston Fed for working with us on this

initiative,” said Governor Scott. “This pandemic has shown

us why it is important to strengthen our small communities

and ensure we have more diversity in our economy so we’re

not so reliant on any one sector or any one region. Grants like

this will help achieve these goals so we can come out of this

pandemic stronger and more resilient.”

President Rosengren and Governor Scott celebrated the

four communities being named grant recipients at a virtual

event and leaders from each of the four communities shared

their efforts to strengthen their local economies and build

healthy communities.

To learn more about the communities and the initiatives

these grants will support please check out the Working

Communities Challenge Website.

Lost Nation Theater is Happily

Participating in Giving Tuesday 2020

#GivingTuesday is a day of giving

that celebrates all those little

acts of kindness, of generosity, of

caring that we can each individually

do, so that collectively we can do a

lot to care for our community, the

world, and each-other. Beginning in

2012, it’s now a worldwide movement

raising nearly $2 billion in

charitable gifts in 2019!

Since its inception, and even

more actively since making its home

within Montpelier City Hall and

becoming the official resident theater

of Vermont’s capital city, Lost

Nation Theater has been a professional

theater committed to community.

Over the years, LNT has been known for

continually improving City Hall Arts Center

to make it easier for any group to use the

space and gather, for partnering with other

non-profits (like the Humane Society, Peace

& Justice Center, Vermont FoodBank, libraries

and senior centers), lending costumes,

lighting and other resources to area schools or

for Home Health & Hospice’s fashion-show

fundraiser.

Now as we try to keep up with the challenges

presented by this world-wide pandemic,

we continue to evolve.

During April, LNT has done everything

from lending stanchions and other theater

equipment so City office staff can direct distancing,

to providing the sound system for

“#JoytothePolls”, to giving free private

coaching to students, to creating free outdoorin-person

and online events for the community

(like Shakespeare on the State House

Steps)! More events are planned – including

presenting Willem Lange reading Dicken’s

Christmas Carol on Dec 18th.

And now – in the spirit of #GivingTuesday,

the spirit of this time of year, and LNT’s longstanding

commitment to being a good neighbor

– Lost Nation Theater’s Board of

Directors has decided LNT will share any

donations received on #GivingTuesday (Dec

1, 2020) with CIRCLE.

By splitting our donations with CIRCLE

we also pay a tribute to the theme of our lost

2020 season: celebrating women and their

accomplishments in honor of the 100th anniversary

of the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Department of Public Safety Seeks Community

Input on Law Enforcement Modernization Plan

The Vermont Department of Public Safety

is seeking public and stakeholder feedback to

shape and refine the state’s continuing work

to modernize policing across Vermont.

This opportunity for comment and feedback

is part of Governor Scott’s Public Safety

Reform Initiative, created through Executive

Order 03-20, which directed the commissioner

of public safety to “actively engage

with communities, particularly those communities

that have been historically marginalized

or harmed by policing, as we develop and

deploy best policing practices.”

“Ensuring all voices are heard as part of

this process, and giving those who have been

most impacted by systemic inequity a seat at

the table, is critical to the success of our work

to strengthen the fairness and equity of systems

of policing and justice,” said Governor

Scott. “It is our hope we will receive significant

public input as we move forward.”

Members of the public will be able to provide

detailed comments online regarding several

policies and strategies that flow from the

Governor’s Executive Order and, in part, a

10-point plan presented earlier this year by

law enforcement and public safety leaders

from throughout Vermont.

In addition, pursuant to the Governor’s

Executive Order and Act 165, an act relating

to a statewide standard and policy for law

enforcement use of force (S.119), the

Department of Public Safety is seeking input

for a statewide model policy for law enforcement

use of force. The state is seeking proposals

for model policies or guiding principles

to be considered in the creation of this

uniform statewide policy.

This is just the first step in creation of this

policy. Members of the public will have multiple

opportunities to review drafts of this

policy and offer feedback as it goes through

the development process, from guiding legislation

to a final draft.

“In January we put forth a suite of modernization

proposals. In June, together with a

variety of partners from inside and outside

government, we added a specific 10-point

strategy to the discussion of modernizing

policing and public safety in Vermont. As we

CIRCLE is a nonprofit that advocates for

and serves victims and survivors of domestic

and sexual assault. LNT has previously partnered

with CIRCLE (Vagina Monologues

beneficiary), and we know how great an organization

it is. Our community has been there

for us, so we want to pass it on!

There are many ways to give and get

involved:

• You can make a financial donation.

• You can become an LNT Volunteer for when

we can actually gather again at Lost Nation

Theater.

• You can be an LNT Thank You Volunteer,

helping to call the folks who’ve donated to

LNT for Giving Tuesday, or other campaigns,

and thank them.

• You can Amplify LNT’s message, by sharing

with friends, family via email, on your

front porch forum, or your personal social

media page.

You may remember that Lost Nation

Theater premiered and helped to develop

David Budbill’s epic play “Little Acts of

Kindness” back in 1993. It seems only fitting

then that we keep generating ‘little acts of

kindness’ ourselves. Thanks for helping to

make it possible!

during this taxing time, and hopes everyone

stays safe and healthy.

move forward, we want to ensure that all

Vermonters have a voice in this process,”

Public Safety Commissioner Michael

Schirling said. “This plan will be successful

and result in meaningful change only with the

feedback, buy-in and support from our communities

— especially marginalized communities

and Black, Indigenous and People of

Color.”

Members of the public who would like to

provide comments may do so by visiting

https://dps.vermont.gov/modernization.

Alternatively, they may email comments to

policing.feedback@vermont.gov.

With respect to the statewide model policy

for law enforcement use of force, copies of

model policies, guiding documents or other

relevant materials can be sent to Jennifer

Morrison, special assistant to the commissioner

of Public Safety, at jennifer.morrison@

Additional details on the earlier 2020 modernization

strategy and original 10-point plan

modernization.

In addition to inviting public feedback

online, the Department of Public Safety is

taking numerous steps to ensure the opinions

of Vermonters are reflected and incorporated

into this ongoing modernization effort.

Among these steps, the Department is collaborating

with researchers at Norwich

University to design a comprehensive public

survey; engaging the State’s Racial Disparities

Advisory Panel; working with the State’s

director of racial equity; and connecting with

the Vermont State Police Fair and Impartial

Policing Committee. Additional engagement

strategies will evolve as the statewide conversation

continues.

“The transformation of policing must begin

with the input of the communities with whom

the police must work,” said Dr. Etan

Nasreddin-Longo, VSP’s co-director of Fair

and Impartial Policing. “This proposal for the

reform of law enforcement is merely a starting

point and can be completed only by the

input of various communities in the state.

That thoughtful input is essential to reform.”

Giving Tuesday and the Vermont Bar Foundation

The Vermont Bar Foundation Celebrates

GivingTuesday by joining millions around

the world participating in the global generosity

movement on December 1, 2020.

This GivingTuesday the Vermont Bar

Foundation will inspire generosity by providing

low-income Vermonters access to civil

justice, because we believe that is a right, not

a privilege. Our Access to Justice campaign

works to ensure that all Vermonters have

access to skilled legal help when needed.

For over 30 years the Vermont Bar

Foundation has helped support Vermonters in

need of legal assistance. In 2008 The Vermont

Poverty Law Fellowship was launched. It is

funded by generous contributions from law

firms, individual attorneys, individuals, corporations

and organizations committed to

civil justice. The Fellowship provides two

years of support to exceptional young attorneys

who work to increase legal access for

low-income Vermonters.

On GivingTuesday the Vermont Bar

Foundation is hosting a free Poverty Law

Panel moderated by Vermont Supreme Court

Justice Beth Robinson and Justice Karen

Carroll and six Vermont Poverty Law Fellows.

The Moretown Artisans’ Sale Moves

Online for 2020

You can support local businesses

and do your holiday shopping

in your underwear this year!

The Moretown Artisans’ Sale

(MAS) is pivoting online this

holiday shopping season in an

effort to make it easier for consumers

to find locally made,

quality gifts, but still shop in a

safe and convenient manner.

Due to COVID related reasons,

Digital Commerce 360

projects U.S. consumers will

spend nearly $2 billion with

online retailers this holiday season,

over a 40% year-over-year

jump from for the same November-December

period in 2019. Moretown Artisans’ Sale

organizer, Meg Schultz, hopes that taking the

stay with local businesses.

“Shopping online is easy, convenient and

safe,” Schultz says. “But just because I’m

shopping online doesn’t mean I can’t also

support local artists and businesses.”

A survey Schultz circulated in November

about online shopping patterns revealed that

90% of respondents eagerly want to support

local businesses, but struggle to do so when

shopping locally online, simply because they

don’t know what is available. She hopes that

by turning the Moretown Artisans’ Sale into

somewhat of an online directory for local artists,

that this can help solve that problem.

“This has been the ‘No-Show’ season for

artists,” Schultz quipped. “Doing shows like

and organizations to transform their communities

and their world. GivingTuesday will

kick off the generosity season this year by

inspiring people to give back on December 1,

2020, and throughout the year.

GivingTuesday was launched in 2012 as a

simple idea: to create a day that encourages

people to do good. Over the past nine years,

this idea has grown into a global movement

that inspires hundreds of millions of people to

give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People demonstrate generosity in many

ways on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s helping

a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an

issue for people we care about, or giving to

causes we care about, every act of generosity

counts.

“GivingTuesday inspires people all around

the world to embrace their power to drive

progress around the causes they care about,

not just on one day but throughout the year,”

said Asha Curran, GivingTuesday’s CEO, and

co-founder. “With country and community

leaders, millions of organizations, and countless

givers of all kinds, GivingTuesday is

creating a shared space where we can see the

radical implications of a more generous

world.”

Vermont Bar Foundation’s GivingTuesday

is how a lot of artists make the bulk of their

living and without being able to do in-person

shows, ‘the struggle has been real.’ Our hope

is that by providing an online outlet for consumers

to find products made locally, we can

put a positive note on an otherwise dismal

year.”

Over 20 artists with a wide variety of products

have signed up in just the first few days

and applications are still coming in. Schultz is

optimistic there will be an ample selection for

consumers to browse through when they start

“windows shopping” for holiday gifts.

Consumers can start shopping right away

at moretownartisan.com but Schultz says to

keep checking back as she expects to update

the page with more artists regularly.

HUNTERS!

Chances are your best wildlife friend is the farmer

whose land you’ll be hunting Saturday morning.

Please mind your manners. Leave his fences

alone, close the gates and don’t drive onto his

fields. Remember your great outdoors is nothing

more than his backyard. He knows every ledge,

odd shaped tree, straight ash and best bucket

hanging maple out there. He watches over his land

day and night, making him one of the best and

cheapest game wardens the State has! So think

about him when you’re buying groceries for camp.

Take some real butter to help out the camp cook,

plenty of Cabot cheese, and a couple gallons of

Booth Brothers milk to get the boys started in the

morning. Buy dairy products with local labels and

support the farmers who have been feeding your

buck all summer. Be careful and have a good hunt

this Saturday.

Heartfelt thanks to MSAC Instructors, FEAST and

other Volunteers, Donors and Partners as we approach

Thanksgiving and the end of this calendar year, we reflect on

all the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, lock downs,

and our slow re-opening and re-visioning. As with every year,

MSAC operations, programs and services would not be possible

without the generous contributions of hundreds of local

community members, but this year it feels even more poignant

to give thanks! Thank you to our many instructors, both

volunteer and paid, who dedicate countless hours of their

weeks to share their skills, passion and inspiration. Please

keep registering for their private classes! Thank you to other

volunteers who give their time to support FEAST

Programming, to those on our Advisory Council and

Committees. Those who help with registration, office work,

proofing, trip planning, drop-in group facilitation, petitioning,

mailing prep, tabling and so much more! In December, we

will publish lists of the 2020 volunteers’ names and recent

donors who have given. We are also cooking up a special

volunteer recognition lunch to be offered curbside on Dec. 14,

since we can’t safely bring people together. Stay tuned for you

Vermont Builder Sam Clark Publishes Debut Mystery

with Rootstock Publishing

Rootstock Publishing, a Montpelierbased

publisher and an imprint of

Multicultural Media, Inc., announced the

forthcoming publication of The Inland Sea,

a debut mystery novel by builder, designer,

and cabinetmaker Sam Clark of Plainfield,

Vermont.

The Inland Sea is set in a sequestered part

of Lake Champlain known as the Inland

Sea, and is a fictional story about people

who have spent their lives there. It follows a

detective on the case of a dead body who

had been missing for almost twenty years.

Clark was inspired to write this book after a

bicycle accident twelve years ago left him

immobilized and unable to continue his

carpentry work.

“I have always been interested in the history

and people of New England ... It’s what I studied in

school, and read about to this day,” says Sam Clark. “I have

often attempted to write about this subject, and my own family’s

relationship to it, but with little success. But on

November 4, 2008, the day Barack Obama was elected, I

was hit by a car while biking, not far from my home in

Plainfield, Vermont. I couldn’t do any woodworking for a

few months, but I could still type. I decided to approach this

material again in the form of a mystery novel,” he says.

“During this period our family had a spot with a boat, an

old house-trailer, and a dock in a lakeside campground called

Montani’s, on the eastern side of South Hero, Vermont. This

is the part of Lake Champlain known as The Inland Sea. I

love the place and also the name. It seemed natural to locate

my story there,” says Clark.

“It might seem absurd to jump from writing building

books to writing a novel, but to me, principles to live by, and

• • •

• • •

• • •

principles to build by, aren’t that different.

You could argue that constructing a detective

story isn’t entirely different from constructing

a house,” says Clark.

Advance praise for The Inland Sea:

“A novel crafted with intricate straight

lines and curves, like a boat. A mystery that’s

also about lake lore, boats, engines, fishing

— and about men, what they talk about and

what they don’t, about vanishing acts, New

England religion, and the unpredictable consequences

of revenge. Take a ride with Sam

Clark’s sure hand guiding you through time

and space and detection in the environs of

Lake Champlain!” —Dick Cluster, author of

Return to Sender and other novels in the Alex

Glauberman mystery series.

“Evidence of intelligence and emotional

complexity is everywhere in the characters Sam Clark has

created for his unusually constructed and sophisticated mystery,

The Inland Sea. An assortment of rebuilt boats skim

across a lake bordered by forest and farm, carrying readers

between islands, slamming waves, treacherous rocks, and the

unpredictable currents of human capability. Designed with a

craftsperson’s care and a philosopher’s depth, The Inland Sea

covers a lot of territory.” —Judith Chalmer, Vermont author of

two books of poetry, Out of History’s Junk Jar and Minnow.

“I love this book. Religion, in all its bizarre, ominous,

American permutations, pulses in this mystery like the springs

that feed into a lake.” —Jon M. Sweeney, author of The Pope

Who Quit, optioned by HBO.

The Inland Sea is available wherever books are sold

(Amazon, IndieBound, Bookshop, Barnes & Noble, local

bookstores) and on Rootstock’s website, www.rootstockpublishing.com.

Course Helps Aspiring

Farmers Get Off to the

Right Start

Growing Places, an online course for aspiring farmers, will

be offered through University of Vermont Extension’s New

Farmer Program, Jan. 11-Feb. 7.

The course, co-sponsored by the Women’s Agricultural

Network, is geared to individuals who are thinking about starting

a farm, specialty food business or other agriculture-related

enterprise. It is designed to help them better understand the

realities of operating an agricultural business to enable them

to make an informed decision if agriculture is the right choice

for them.

Early registration is $100, if received by Dec. 22, or $150

after that date. Financial assistance is available.

For details or to register, go to http://go.uvm.edu/growingplaces.

If requiring a disability-related accommodation to

participate, contact UVM Student Accessibility Services at

(802) 656-7753 or access@uvm.edu.

The course will cover goal-setting, decision-making,

resource evaluation, financial planning and basic marketing

information for agricultural products. Participants also will

learn about resources such as state and federal agricultural

programs and organizations that provide assistance and support

for farmers.

Instruction will be offered through instructor-led presentations,

readings and exercises. Participants are expected to

complete weekly assignments but can do the work as it fits in

their schedule.

Live weekly Zoom meetings will encourage interaction

between the instructors and other participants with an end goal

of helping participants map out the next steps for starting a

farm business. All sessions will be recorded.

For more information, contact the New Farmer Project at

newfarmer@uvm.edu.

WDEV Introduces

Vermont Viewpoint

WDEV is excited to announce the addition of Vermont

This two-hour public affairs talk show will be hosted by veteran

Vermont radio broadcaster, Ric Cengeri. “This timeslot

Cengeri.

Vermont and its people. An important part of the program will

be listener phone calls. “WDEV has always been a place for

Vermonters to make their voices heard. The diversity of topics

to give voice to local concerns and interests,” said station

Tammie Lou Beauregard

Worcester, VT - Tammie Lou Beauregard,

53 of Worcester passed away Thursday,

November 12th, surrounded by family,

after battling cancer since earlier this

year in May.

Born March 13th, 1967 in Berlin VT,

she was the daughter of Robert and Betty

Beauregard. She attended U-32 High

School and graduated in 1984.

After graduating she began working

for the Vermont State Tax Department, where she was a

dedicated employee for the last 35 years. She cared deeply for

her co-workers and was quick with a smile and a laugh. She

lived in Worcester for most of her life where she raised her

two children.

In her free time, she enjoyed being outdoors, gardening,

and watching her Nascar races (#4 Harvick). She enjoyed

spending time at the beach and being surrounded by family

and friends. Those that were blessed to have known her knew

she was a kindhearted, generous woman that would always

lend a helping hand, as well as a dedicated mother and grandmother.

We grieve the loss of a daughter, a sister, a mother, a

grandmother, and a friend to so many.

She is survived by her children, Cortney Bador, and Tyler

Bador of Worcester, as well as her grandson, Declan Moore,

her mother, Betty Beauregard of Worcester and was predeceased

by her father Robert Beauregard. She leaves behind

her beloved sisters; Roxie, Connie, Danita, and brothers;

Danny, Robert, Calvin, Alan, and Dan, as well as many other

nieces, nephews, and family members. Her love and laughter

will continue to resonate through all who knew her. Our

hearts hurt beyond any measurable amount, but we know it

was because we all loved her beyond any measurable amount.

She will continue to be missed every moment of every day.

There will be no services held at this time. Per her request

there will be a graveside service followed by a celebration of

life that will be announced in the spring. Anyone who wishes

to make a donation in her honor can do so to the American

Cancer Society or Central VT Home Health and Hospice.

Philip Bruce Hathaway passed away peacefully on

November 11, 2020 in Northfield, Vermont. He

During this season of Thanksgiving, the family of Randall

Paul Johnson wishes to acknowledge the unwavering support

shown to us through this difficult year. We would like to

extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to

all that contributed during Randy’s illness. The

overwhelming number of people that offered

their thoughts, prayers, time and money

continues as a testament to Randy’s well lived

life. As terrible as the loss of our dear husband,

father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and

friend, the love, support and coming together

of so many will always be a comfort to those

that loved him. Thank you all from the

bottom of our hearts.

Northfield High School in 1957. Soon after graduation he

joined the US Army serving in Japan. On his return to

Vermont he worked in insurance for Horace Mann and

Co-operative Insurance Companies. He also had a passion for

trucks and cars of all kinds, traveling and selling them for

many years. Near the end of his working days he enthusiastically

engaged in carpentry. He was an adventurous spirit and

his laugh on the ski slopes, in the kitchen preparing delicious

fish chowder (no potatoes, “Papa Goudy never put potatoes in

his chowder”), while fishing or simply sharing a chore like

cleaning will be remembered and missed.

Philip is survived by his daughters Susan Torok of

Cedarville, OH, Nicole Weissinger of Lyme, CT, his son

Andrew Hathaway of Newport, VT, six grandchildren, Scott,

Justin, Stephanie, Karl, Katie and Caleb (all knew him as

Pepe), four great-grandchildren, his nieces Kathy Griffiths

and Linda Potvin, and cousins dotting the countryside. He

was predeceased by his mother Evelyn and step-father

Clayton Kirkpatrick, his sister, Jacqueline Cardell and her

husband Jim Cardell.

Additionally, Philip leaves behind a loving family at Four

Seasons Care Home, especially Katina Lambert. Katina and

Phil’s shared humanity burned so bright it rendered his

dementia a shadow merely dimming understanding, not

obscuring the light of kindness and connection in the least.

Finally, Phil treasured many friends in his 81 years.

Among these, he enjoyed the warmth of his rekindled childhood

friendship with Joe Fiarcoski in 2014. And Phil was

grateful for over 30 years of friendship with Hal Campbell.

Hal helped Phil through some of his hardest times and

enjoyed some special hunts with him too.

A burial will be held at Hope Cemetery in Northfield, July

2021, when a gathering can celebrate the life and soul of

Philip Hathaway.

If interested and able, the family would encourage donations

to Washington County Mental Health or another mental

health charity of your choice.

Governor Phil Scott Issues

Statement Honoring Vermonters

Lost to Covid-19

Flags are lowered to half-staff in honor of all 61

Vermonters lost to COVID-19, as they are on the 19th of

each month. The 19th was selected because the first two

COVID-related deaths in Vermont were on March 19.

Governor Phil Scott issued the following statement:

“On April 19, I ordered the flags to fly at half-staff on

the 19th of each month to honor those who have lost their

lives to Covid-19.

“This month we do so amidst rising case counts across

the state, increased transmission and growing concern for

the health and safety of our most vulnerable neighbors.

Sadly, we’ve now reached the grim milestone of 250,000

deaths nationwide.

“And the group we remember today has grown by three

this month. My thoughts are with their families, communities

and the healthcare providers who cared for them in

this difficult time.

“Today, as we remember those we’ve lost, let’s honor

them by renewing our commitment to protect one another,

to support one another and to listen to what the science

and the data are telling us. If we do, we’ll get through

these difficult times faster, and recover stronger, than any

other state.”

following their curiosity about history, culture, art and architecture.

Survivors include her children and their families,

brother and extended family. As Flora has requested, there

will be no service in the future, but her family will be gathering

for a private celebration of her life on Talcott Mountain in

Simsbury, Connecticut, at a later date. Those wishing to

Vermont Physician Groups Call on Vermonters

to Prioritize their Communities and Protect

Schools for Our Children

The American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter,

Vermont Academy of Family Physicians and Vermont Medical

Society join Governor Scott and the Vermont Department of

Health in calling on Vermonters to refrain from any social

gathering in order to protect and prioritize essential services

like schools, child care, and health care as we see rates of

community transmission of COVID-19 rise.

The new restriction on multi-household gatherings is based

on epidemiology or systematic observations of how the virus

is spreading in our communities. Since October 1, 71% of

cases associated with an outbreak are linked to a private party

or social gathering. Vermont is not seeing significant transmission

in places where prevention policies are followed like

schools and child care. That tells us that the prevention policies

and mitigation strategies are working and effort should be

placed on avoiding unnecessary gatherings so that essential

services can remain open, including keeping kids in schools;

adults in jobs; preventing infections; and minimizing deaths.

For families with children, this means cancelling playdates

and other social gatherings. However, pods which have

already been established for education or the care of children

are allowable. This includes allowing carpooling for education/child

care purposes and formal and informal child care.

Safety measures like social distancing, handwashing and

masking should be followed. The smaller the pod, the better.

Activities should prioritize needs over wants.

Avoiding multi-household gatherings achieves two purposes:

1. It addresses the spaces and situations where we are seeing

transmission of COVID-19 in Vermont

2. It limits activities that exacerbate inequities in favor of

activities that address inequities like schools and childcare.

It’s been more than two months since K-12 schools

reopened and pediatricians would like to thank teachers,

school nurses, administrators, and all school staff for their

incredible work. Our patients tell us that their in-person days

at school provide structure and routine and the opportunity to

interact with their peers and teachers in meaningful ways.

Many describe improvements in their mental health. Parents

are relieved and grateful.

Keeping schools open is crucial because kids need consistent

in-person learning. Children and adolescents exist on a

different timeline than adults. Growth and development is

measured in weeks and months. Development is rapid and

exciting but that also means that when opportunity is missed

or delayed, that lost time can be unforgiving for children. We

saw this in the spring, when school closures led to regression

of developmental milestones for our children with special

• • •

health needs who missed out on much-needed services.

Educators have been racing against the clock too, trying to

catch students up and re-engage learners who have fallen

behind. There are critical time periods for motor and sensory

development, for social emotional learning, for academic

progress. Kids can’t afford to lose more time.

We have always known that there would be cases of

COVID-19 in schools because schools reflect what is happening

in the community. We continue to see that schools are not

a main driver of transmission in this pandemic. The fact that

there have been a number of cases where an infectious person

has entered the K-12 learning environment and has not transmitted

the virus highlights the effectiveness of the mitigation

strategies we have in place in VT. But keeping schools safe is

not the sole responsibility of students, teachers, and staff.

Community rates need to be kept low. As the days get darker

and colder and we enter the holiday season, following the

guidelines will be more important than ever in order to keep

kids in school. This is the responsibility of all Vermonters.

Vermont continues to lead the country in management of

COVID-19. We continue to have a very robust and phenomenal

contact-tracing program to find cases and prevent the

spread of the virus. Despite that, we are seeing increased cases

of COVID-19 and we are certainly not immune. Due to the

increased rate of activity in Vermont, the Vermont Department

of Health has broadened the testing recommendations to

include more contacts of cases and anyone who has been at a

social gathering. Within the next week or two, additional testing

locations and testing through self-administered nasal

swabs will be available 7 days/week.

Please do your part to keep COVID-19 out of the schools

so we can keep our kids in school and our communities

healthy.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

This year, instead of jumping into

the whole holiday prep scene,

move in a little at a time. You’ll appreciate

the sense of control you’re

more likely to enjoy.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The separation between the

Bovine’s head and heart is never as far apart as it seems.

Both senses work best when they come out of logic and

honesty.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The best way to keep those

pre-holiday pressures under control is to just say no to taking

on new tasks while you’re still trying to work with a

heap of others.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) News means a change

might be on its way, but what does it hold? Don’t just ask

questions; make sure you get answers you can trust.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Old friends and new have one

thing in common: Both your longtime and newly minted

pals have much wisdom to impart.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With time running

out, this is a good time for you to show ‘em all what those

Virgo super-organizational skills can do.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Librans and holidays

are made for each other, especially if children and animals

are going to be part of your joyous season.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Time is getting

too short to allow a spat to taint the holiday season. Restart

your relationship and reschedule holiday fun times.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Seeking

advice is laudable. You might learn far more than you

thought you could. Stay with it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Continuing to

assess changes works toward your getting your new project

up and ready. Trusted colleagues remain ready to help.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) That new situation

needs a lot of attention, but it’s worth it. This is a very

good time for you to involve the arts in what you do.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) It might be a good idea

to slow your hectic holiday pace so that you don’t rush past

what -- or who -- you’re hoping to rush toward.

BORN THIS WEEK: Others pick up on your confidence

in yourself, which inspires them to believe in you and your

special gifts.

Our Unsung Heroes of Democracy

By Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos

As Vermonters we should be proud. The November General

Election saw Vermonters voting in record numbers, exercising

our civic duty both safely and securely during circumstances

that are anything but ordinary.

Much of the conversation nationally is focused on the

results of the election. I think it’s equally important to discuss

the hard work done by local election officials administering

our democratic process.

The elections process is different across all 50 states. How

votes are received, and when they are counted, may be dissimilar

across county or state lines. However, every state in

the nation shares one common underpinning: hardworking

election officials focused on the integrity and security of our

elections.

In Vermont, these heroes of democracy are the Town and

City Clerks. While my office and the Legislature get much of

the credit for big picture policy setting, none of that would

matter were it not for the diligent, steadfast work of the

Clerks. From Town Meeting Day to the Presidential Election,

the Clerks keep the front door open to democracy for Vermont

voters, working long days and late hours before, on, and after

Election Day.

Their list of responsibilities is a lengthy one, from assisting

local voters with the registration process, to recruiting election

officials and processing early/absentee ballots. Across

every acre of this state, the Town and City Clerks conduct

these tasks with excellence. The same is true of local Boards

A Thanksgiving Dinner Emergency Plan

By G. E. Shuman

I

was just at our local supermarket, or

one of them … okay, the one my family

most often frequents. I’ll tell you;

the place was mobbed. Well, it wasn’t

actually mobbed, and this year I can feel

especially good about that. It WAS packed with people shopping.

And I mean packed.

Most of the time I was in the store I felt like stopping one

of the many shoppers with an overflowing shopping cart and

asking her, (Most of them seemed to be ‘hers’.) if she was

shopping for Thanksgiving dinner or because of the next

COVID-19 apocalypse. Eventually, I stopped wondering

about that and learned that I could somewhat figure it out if I

was just a bit nosey and peeked into her cart as I passed by in

the aisle. (After, of course, checking that I was heading in the

correct direction.) If I could see a big fat family-sized frozen

turkey in the cart, I had my answer. If I could see several big

fat family-sized packs of toilet paper in there, again I had my

answer. If I could see both the turkey and the TP, I knew this

was a very astute and prepared shopper. (I should have been a

private detective.)

For most U.S. families, this Thanksgiving Day will probably

resemble a ‘normal’ Thanksgiving in some ways, but

maybe not in other ways. If your family is like most others this

year, you may have fewer relatives visiting your home, or you

may not be visiting theirs. The COVID-19 rules seem to be

changing almost daily and do vary by state.

If you plan on visiting family out of state, you just might

want to have a Thanksgiving backup plan in case those origi-

of Civil Authority members and election workers who assist

the Clerks in this work.

This year was no exception, despite the significant challenges

that the COVID-19 health crisis has posed to our normal

elections process. In response, the Clerks went above and

beyond. They worked in advance with my office to put measures

in place to make the elections process as safe as possible

for every voter, ensuring that no Vermonter eligible to vote

would have to choose between their health and their right to

vote. They processed the enormous influx of early ballots to

ensure that every vote cast by an eligible voter was counted.

They designed safe polling place layouts, so that in-person

voting on Election Day could be done as safely as possible at

the polls. After all that, they were still able to tabulate and

provide unofficial election night results for over 98% of

Vermont precincts by midnight that night. In the ensuing days

they carefully reviewed and certified results, in a deliberative

process that ensures accuracy in the count.

When I hear rhetoric, conspiracy theories, and baseless

claims denigrating the security and integrity of our elections

process, one of the things that bothers me most is complete

dismissal of the hard work done by these sworn officials who

care deeply about the integrity of the process, and the sanctity

of democracy.

Every election cycle, and even more so this year, I am

grateful for the diligence and dutifulness of Vermont’s Town

and City Clerks. I hope that you will join me in thanking our

local heroes of democracy.

nal plans fall apart. In years past some families sort of loosely

figured out such a plan, (ours included) if bad weather was

predicted, and those plans came in handy more than once. To

me, having such a plan in place could be a holiday-saver this

year. (No one wants a PBJ sandwich on Thanksgiving.)

Your Thanksgiving dinner rescue plan could be as simple as

this: Get a small frozen turkey, which will cost you about five

bucks if bought before Thanksgiving. (If you don’t eat it now,

they’re great anytime in the winter, or on your gas grill next

summer. Yum!) Buy some canned veggies, (which you should

probably be stockpiling right now anyway,) Stovetop Stuffing,

(not to be a brand dropper,) some turkey gravy, and a bag of

potatoes. Ta-Da! Instant Thanksgiving dinner, just in case you

must stay at home yourself or have fewer family members

visiting this year.

We Americans have always been great innovators. As of

this writing, my own family is unsure if our dinner plans for

Thanksgiving will actually materialize. We’re all praying that

they will, but God only knows, and I do not mean that sarcastically.

Truly, only He really does know, and only He can be

our guide through these tough times. Still, it doesn’t hurt to do

a little extra planning, (At this moment there are two smallish

turkeys taking a long cold nap in our freezer.)

In some ways, this year is not different from others.

Thanksgiving Day is still a day in which we are reminded to

be thankful for all that we have. Regardless of anything and

everything else this year may change for us; it cannot stop us

from being thankful. Have a wonderful and thankful

Thanksgiving

record numbers safely during a pandemic.”

The certified total of ballots cast in the 2020 General

Election this year was 372,366, a record high of ballots

cast during a Vermont General Election, representing a

73.5% turnout of registered voters. The previous record

was 326,822 set in 2008.

The Department of Public Service announces that customers

of an expanded list of water and wastewater providers can

now get help with past due bills. Deputy Commissioner Allen

says that “the VCAAP has expanded to include non-regulated

water and sewer/wastewater charges from municipal water

and sewer/wastewater departments, community water systems,

fire districts and other agencies that provide water and

sewer/wastewater services to consumers.” This program is

available for Vermonter’s primary homes and Vermont based

businesses.

The program is available to Vermont residential utility

customers and small businesses. “The pandemic has been

ruthless in visiting economic hardship on so many Vermonters

who have lost income and are struggling to keep up with their

basic expenses,” said Department of Public Service

Commissioner June Tierney. “Thankfully, Vermont has been

able to make these grants available using federal CARES Act

money to provide some relief,” Tierney continued, “but the

time to apply is getting short and folks need to act soon. All

The First Foreign Language Film to Be Nominated

for Best Picture

La Grande Illusion (1937)

★★★★

I’m a pacifist.

Being against every war comes easily for me. Doing

something about it, though, is a challenge.

All I’ve come up with, I’m embarrassed to say, is that I vow

to never participate in a war. French director Jean Renoir

devised a more interesting anti-war device. And he presented

it in his hit drama “La Grande Illusion.” It was France’s top

box office hit of 1937 and it might have changed French history

for the better.

“La Grande Illusion” is the opposite of “1917.” It has no

battle scenes, no bad guys, and no blood. “La Grande Illusion”

is hardly a war movie at all; it’s a peace movie that celebrates

all the best attributes of humanity.

The story begins with a pair of WWI French officers being

taken captive behind German lines. From the very start, the

Germans treat the two men with hospitality and respect.

The officers are a bit of an odd couple. Captain de Boeldieu

is a confident, gentile aristocrat. Lieutenant Maréchal is a

beefy working-class tough guy. They don’t have a thing in

common, but they respect each other.

Captain de Boeldieu does find a good friend at the POW

camp, though: it’s German Captain Von Rauffenstein. War

would have them be enemies, but they never see it that way.

They are cosmopolitan, erudite, and trilingual. The two captains

drink together and happily converse in French, German,

and English.

Rations are tight at the prison camp. However, de Boeldieu

and Maréchal are fortunate to share a room with Lieutenant

Rosenthal. Rosenthal represents the nouveau riche. His family

sends him decadent care packages and he is delighted to share

the bounty with his cellmates.

Maréchal has every reason to be suspicious and jealous of

this barely-French Jew, but the two men become best buddies

and work to escape together.

“La Grande Illusion” can be read as an elegy for the Age of

Aristocracy in Europe. De Boeldieu is noble in every sense of

Vermonters also voted early, including by mail, in

record numbers, following the mailing of ballots to all

active, registered voters by the Secretary of State’s

office. Of the 372,366 ballots cast in the 2020 General

Election 280,455 were cast early/absentee, meaning 75%

of all ballots cast were cast early or by mail. The previous

record was 95,203 in 2016.

Vermont’s official list of winners for federal and statewide

offices are as follows:

• U.S. President and Vice President Joseph R. Biden and

Kamala D. Harris 242,820

• U.S. House Peter Welch 238,827

• Governor Phil Scott 248,412

• Lt. Governor Molly Gray 182,820

• State Treasurer Beth Pearce 197,255

• Secretary of State Jim Condos 214,666

water and wastewater systems in Vermont also now have

access to the program.”

Consumers may apply to the VCAAP for utility bill including

water and sewer/wastewater charges that, if left unpaid,

may result in a disconnection of services. To date, more than

seven thousand applicants have received benefits under

VCAAP but only a handful were for customers of regulated

private water companies. The addition of water and sewer/

wastewater charges to the VCAAP will go a long way to help

consumers financially burdened by COVID-19 maintain necessary

services they might otherwise lose because of their

inability to pay.

the word. A sensible country would want to be ruled by men

like him.

But, truth be told, every single character – French and

German – is civil and decent. It is possible that this mega-hit

film inspired the French to quickly submit to German invasion

a few years later without much of a fight.

For Christian French people, the German occupation was

relatively non-violent. By promptly surrendering, France

spared itself the unimaginable bloody horror that most of

Europe suffered through.

Jean Renoir’s elegant argument is that the antidote to war is

love: loving your fellow man and loving your enemy more

than you love your country.

I think we should give Renoir’s love protest a try. Early next

year, the Joint Chiefs of Staff will be eagerly presenting countries

to President Biden that they want to bomb and/or invade.

Iran, Russia, North Korea, Azerbaijan … the military establishment

is hungry for a fun new war.

Let’s risk being called “traitors” and protest the next war

with love. Let’s say proudly that we love Persians, we love

Russians, we love Koreans, and we love Azerbaijanis – even

though we don’t know all that much about them.

To be fair, Renoir’s love defense probably will not work.

Even Renoir says so in the final act. Maréchal and Rosenthal

are on the run for the Swiss border. “May this war end soon,”

Maréchal muses, “and may there never be another one.”

“That’s an illusion,” Rosenthal mutters.

Three years later, the actor who played Rosenthal was desperately

fleeing Nazi Europe with a forged passport.

PET CARE CORNER | THE WORLD

Pet-Perfect Holiday

Don’t leave your fur-babies out when you’re planning your holiday celebrations. Here are

some ways you can bring Fluffy and Fido into your festivities.

ADD PET TREATS TO YOUR HOLIDAY BAKING

Making a tasty cookie for your four-legged friends is

just as easy as making a delectable dessert for your human

friends. This recipe pleases cats, dogs and everything in

between.

3 jars baby food, meat or veggies

1 ½ cups wheat germ or cream of wheat

Mix ingredients together. Drop by the spoonful on a wax

paper-covered plate. Seal with wax paper over the top and

microwave for 5-8 minutes. Check that treats are formed and

fir then store in the ride or uick snck

TAKE A PICTURE WITH SANTA

Many humane societies and rescue organizations offer

Santa pics as a fundraiser during the holiday season. Dress

your pet up in their best and have a pic snapped for a great

cause.

Sometimes, mall and department store Santas will also set

aside a time for pet pictures. Check your local community

calendars for more information.

MAKE A PAWPRINT ORNAMENT

Take the salt dough recipe from earlier in this section and

make paw print ornaments. Personalize it with the year for a

special keepsake.

STOCKINGS AND PRESENTS

Add stockings full of tasty treats and toys just for your

favorite pets to your giving list. And don’t forget donations

to rescue organizations and shelters.

The holidays can be a tough time for these organizations.

Your contribution or even your time might be a huge help for

them.

STAY SAFE

The holidays can be a tough time for your pets, too. Keep

them safe with these tips from the ASPCA:

• Anchor your Christmas tree to keep curious cats and dogs

from knocking it over. Also keep pets away from candles

and light displays.

• Avoid mistletoe and holly. These festive plants are pretty,

ut they cn e toic to pets se rtifici pnts insted

• Keep the people food out of reach, especially bones, cocktails,

pork dishes, raisins and grapes, nuts and nutmeg. All of

those can make your pet sick or even kill them.

Best Friends Animal

Society Offers

Thanksgiving Tips to

Keep Pets Safe, as Dogs

and Cats are Newly

Adopted or Fostered

Amid COVID

Like everything else in 2020, for most people

this Thanksgiving will look quite different. There

will likely be fewer folks around the dinner

table, friends may be connecting on FaceTime,

and grandma might be joining by Zoom, sadly

without her famous sweet potatoes.

Although there might be fewer human visitors, one

thing that’s certain is that many American homes have

newly adopted dogs and cats to be thankful for, and pets

are grateful to be spending the holiday in foster homes.

Many people are counting their blessings with a pet in

their home for the first time. For this reason, Best Friends

Animal Societyhopes to help make this a happy, healthy

holiday for all family members by offering a few special

precautions to protect our pets:

Those soulful eyes may tempt pet owners to give in to

their begging critters, but sharing the fabulous feast can

lead to trouble for pets.

Too much rich, fatty food, or simply new, unfamiliar

foods can upset a pet’s stomach--and even cause pancreatitis,

which can be life-threatening—so owners should

go easy on the tidbits. Poultry or ham bones can break up

or splinter in a pet’s stomach and be deadly, so dogs and

cats should never be allowed to gnaw on them, and bones

should go outside to the trash immediately. Other foodflavored

items like plastic wrap, string, mesh or the popup

timer can smell tempting to curious pets, but can injure

their stomachs if stolen and ingested.

Chocolate, especially that used for baking, is toxic for

dogs, so it should be kept out of reach. Other common

food items that can be poisonous to dogs include onions,

raisins and grapes, so avoid sharing these.

It’s a good idea to review these rules with any guests as

well, since well-meaning holiday visitors might not know

the potential harm caused by slipping treats to the pets

under the table. If pet owners want to make the holiday

special for their four-footed family members, they should

plan ahead and have safe, delicious dog and cat treats on

hand, like canned pet food or a tasty pet treats or fun toy.

There are also many great recipes online for homemade

dog and cat treats that are fun to make and extra special

for our pets.

A final note to consider is that many common decorative

plants and flowers can be toxic for curious cats and

dogs, so before buying plants or creating the centerpiece,

it’s wise to check to ensure that you’re not using anything

that could poison your pets. According to the American

Veterinary Medical Association, some plant hazards

include amaryllis, baby’s breath, sweet William, some

ferns, hydrangeas and others.

Thanksgiving is often one of the busiest evenings for

emergency vet clinics, so it’s an important time to be

extra careful with our animal friends—especially this

year, when many animal hospitals are operating under

COVID restrictions. That way the holiday can be happy

and healthy for everyone, and maybe your veterinarian

can have the night off too.

BLACK FRIDAY | IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Support your Local Retailers

This has been

challenging for

retailers – especially

for owners of small

businesses. On Black

Friday and the weeks

that follow, you can

play your part in

giving your locally

owned companies a

strong finish to a

difficult year by

shopping locally.

Many local business owners

have reported the possibility

of having to shut down their

stores due to the COVID-19

pandemic, especially ones

that rely on continuous foot

traffic and in-store shopping.

Strong end-of-year sales could

make the difference in convincing

local owners to keep

their lights on in the future.

WHY SHOP LOCAL?

When you support your

local businesses, more of your

money will be kept in your

local economy. This means

more tax dollars to fuel better

roads, buildings and local services.

For every $100 you spend at

strategies like offering superior customer service and seeking

input from customers can help small businesses generate

more repeat customers, which can greatly improve their

chances for long-term success.

Throughout the COVID-19

pandemic, businesses have

had to implement varying

CHRISTMAS GREENERY | THE WORLD

Keep your natural tree fresh

this Christmas

Natural Christmas tree afficionados love the authenticity such trees

provide during the holiday season. Natural trees also provide a unique

aroma that can make holiday celebrations feel more homey.

When purchasing natural trees, holiday celebrants, especially

those who like to buy their trees in early December,

may be concerned about keeping their trees fresh throughout

the holiday season. The following tips can help trees last

until the final present is unwrapped and the last of the egg

nog has been consumed.

• Buy a freshly cut tree. Whenever possible, celebrants

should cut their own trees. This ensures that the tree they

bring home is fresh, increasing the chances it will remain so

throughout the season. If it’s not possible to cut your own

tree, the National Fire Protection Association notes that

fresh trees should have green needles that do not come off

when touched. Trees that appear to be dried out or those

that shed needles when touched should be avoided.

• Protect trees on the way home. The Tree Care Industry

Association advises consumers to protect their Christmas

trees as they transport them home. Wrap the tree in a plastic

wrap so it makes it home damage-free. A damaged tree

might not make it through the holiday season.

• Cut pre-cut trees before leaving the lot. Pre-cut trees can

make it through the holiday season looking their best, but

buyers should request that employees cut as much as two

inches off the bottom of the tree before leaving the lot.

Once trees are cut, sap begins to seal their base, making it

hard for them to absorb water. By requesting that between

one and two inches be removed from the bottom of the tree

at the time of purchase, buyers are ensuring their trees will

be able to absorb the water they’ll need to make it through

the season when they get home.

• Place the tree in water the moment you get home. To prevent

the base of the tree from drying out, place it in water

the moment you get home. Freshly cut trees may initially

need the water in their tree stands filled in the morning and

then again in the evening. As the season progresses, trees

likely won’t need their stands filled more than once per day.

• Place the tree away from heat sources. Placing trees away

from heat sources, such as radiators, fireplaces, heating

vents, and lights, reduces the likelihood that trees will dry

out and also reduces the risk of fire.

Vermont’s Country

SuperStation

No matter what the challenge, there are some simple actions

you can take to make sure you have an enjoyable, safe

Black Friday.

Consider these safety precautions from State Farm before

opening your wallet this holiday season:

• Keep your purse close to your body or your wallet in an

inside coat pocket.

• Don’t take your money out until asked to do so.

• Use only one credit card to reduce the risk of having multiple

cards compromised in the case of a security breach.

• Save your receipts and monitor your credit card activity.

• Ask for help moving and loading large items if needed.

• Be patient when looking for a parking space.

• Park your vehicle in a well-lit area.

• Store shopping bags out of plain sight, in your trunk if

possible.

• Online, stick with retailers you know.

• Research a business you haven’t purchased from before

by checking customer reviews or complaints with the Better

Business Bureau.

• Refrain from using public Wi-Fi to make purchases.

Here are some tips from the Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention for protecting yourself in public during the

COVID-19 pandemic:

• Stay at least six feet away from others while shopping and

in lines.

• Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering

when you have to go out in public.

• Go out during hours when fewer people will be there (for

example, early morning or late night).

I you re t hiher risk or iness find out

if the store has special hours for people at

higher risk.

• Disinfect the shopping cart; use disinfecting

wipes if available.

• Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.

• If possible, use touchless payment with your

smartphone or watch.

• If you must handle money, a card or use a

keypad, use hand sanitizer right after.

• After leaving the store, use hand sanitizer.

• When you get home, wash your hands

with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

NOVEMBER BRIDAL DIRECTORY | THE WORLD

Precautions that can keep wedding guests safe during the pandemic

Happy couples planning to tie the knot in 2020

confronted a challenge they likely never saw

coming. While many couples fear inclement

weather on their wedding days, 2020’s

prospective brides and grooms had to contend

with something far more fearful than rain clouds.

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus that began in

the winter of 2019-20 and was ultimately declared a

pandemic by the World Health Organization put many

couples’wedding plans in peril. In an effort to stop the

spread of the virus and protect those most vulnerable to it,

governments across the globe placed restrictions on social

gatherings, including weddings. Those restrictions prompted

some couples to postpone their nuptials until 2021, while

others tied the knot at considerably smaller ceremonies than

they initially planned for.

Couples planning to tie the knot in the months ahead can

still do so, but the WHO recommends they take certain precautions

as they organize their ceremonies and receptions.

onfir oc reutions Restrictions reted to O

VID-19 differ greatly by region. Areas that were not hit hard

by the virus may not have as many restrictions in place as

those that were devastated by the outbreak. In addition, cities

or regions whose responses to the virus have been successful

may have relaxed restrictions more than areas that are still

struggling. The WHO notes the importance of checking local

guidelines prior to planning an event, and that’s especially

important for couples who hope to get married in towns or

cities where they do not currently reside.

• Keep guests up to date about precautions. Include detailed

information about the safety measures that will be implemented

during the wedding on your wedding website. Insert

a card detailing this information into your invitation envelopes

as well so all guests know what to expect when they

accept the invitation. In addition, remind guests of the safety

precautions throughout the ceremony.

• Provide sanitary supplies. Make sure hand sanitizer, soap,

water, and masks are readily available for all guests. Social

distance markers also can be placed on the ground throughout

the venue to make it easy for guests to stay six feet apart

from one another.

• Choose an outdoor venue. The Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention notes that the COVID-19 virus spreads very

easily through person-to-person contact and that the risk of

spreading the virus is greater when spending time indoors.

Couples can mitigate some of that risk by tying the knot

outdoors and then hosting an outdoor reception where tables

are kept at least six feet apart.

PET OF THE WEEK

Legacy is a timid cat who is looking for a

consistent home to call her own. Brought to

CVHS when her brief owner had a home that

was too active for her, we see that Legacy

seeks a quiet home that is free of chaos,

children, and canines. Legacy was familiar

with living with an older woman, but had to

pack her things when the woman moved into

a nursing home. Do you have a home,

patience, and love to give Legacy?

All adoptions are done by a phone

appointment only (no one is allowed

Thunder Road Reveals Schedule

for 2021 Racing Season

The schedule for the 2021 season at Barre’s

Thunder Road is now set. Track officials

have unveiled a 19-event campaign from

mid-May to early-October with all the events

that competitors and fans have come to love.

The 62nd season atop Quarry Hill begins

Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. The

annual Thunder Road Car Show is tentatively

scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on May 15, although

it is dependent on the Vermont state health

and safety guidelines in place come this time.

Open practice for all local divisions will be

held that afternoon.

Racing season at the “Nation’s Site of

Excitement” then gets underway Sunday,

May 16 at 1:30 p.m. with the 23rd Community

Bank N.A. 150 for the American-Canadian

Tour (ACT) Late Models. The Lenny’s Shoe

& Apparel Flying Tigers and rk Miles Street

Stocks open their championship seasons that

day with the Burnett Scrap Metals Road

Warriors rounding out the card.

The Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models

begin the “King of the Road” chase on

Sunday, May 30 at the 58th Mekkelsen RV

Memorial Day Classic. After a one-year hiatus

due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic,

the Memorial Day Classic returns this

year with the format originally planned for

2020. The Late Models open their pointcounting

season in a special 125-lap event

while the Flying Tigers kick off the Myers

Container Service Triple Crown Series with a

100-lap showdown.

Weekly night racing then goes green on

Friday, June 11 with a full card of championship

action plus the annual visit from the

New England Antique Racers. Thursday

night action gets underway the following

week on June 17 once local schools are out

for the summer. The weekly racing schedule

runs through August 26.

During that time, a variety of special

events are planned. The annual Independence

Day Spectacular will take place on Thursday,

July 1, making Thunder Road one of the first

places in the region to celebrate the holiday.

The second round of the Triple Crown Series

is set for Thursday, July 8 with the championship

round on Thursday, August 5.

The month of July also includes the 42nd

Vermont Governor’s Cup on July 15, the

double-point Midseason Championships on

July 22, and the annual Port-a-Potty Grand

Prix on July 29. The 37th annual Bolduc

nights off on June 11, July 15, and August 5.

The finale of the weekly racing season on

August 26 includes the annual Run-What-U-

Brung Spectator Races.

Once weekly racing concludes, three huge

events remain. The 43rd Optical Expressions

Berlin Labor Day Classic 200 on Sunday,

September 5 brings back the ACT Late

Model Tour for their second visit of the year.

All division champions, including the “King

of the Road” will be crowned at Barre

Friday, September 17.

The season wraps up with Vermont Milk

Bowl Weekend from Friday, October 1

through Sunday, October 3. Milk Bowl

Friday is headlined by the Prelude to the Milk

Bowl 150 for the Pro All Stars Series Super

Late Models plus the North East Mini Stock

Tour. The Milk Bowl field will be set at

Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Qualifying Day on

Saturday, October 2 with the 59th Vermont

Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings

Bank on Sunday, October 3. Following the

conclusion of local and regional racing,

Thunder Road will host its 2nd Annual

Automotive Flea Market & Swap Meet on

Saturday, October 30.

Thunder Road’s 2021 schedule remains

subject to change based on the trajectory of

the COVID-19 pandemic at a local, regional,

and national level. Certain special events and

activities, such as the Kid’s Rides slated for

June 17, the Driver Autograph session on

July 22, and the Kid’s Poster Contest on

August 19, could also be rescheduled or

modified based on whatever health requirements

are in place.

The complete 2021 schedule of events can

be found at www.thunderroadvt.com/schedule.

Season pass information for the 2021

season will be announced in the near future.

Attendance limitations and spectator guidelines

for the 2021 season are currently

unknown.

divisions were released on November 11.

I saw a zipup

bag to store

artificial

Christmas trees in. This bag

looked like luggage, with

wheels on one end. I have

purchased two, and I use

them under my bed to store

off-season clothes. I can

pull the handle and they

wheel right out, and I no

longer have to get down on

the ground and tug them

out as I used to do. It’s a

back saver.” -- I.W. via email

* If you get a scratch in a

white enamel sink or other

white enamel surface, try

touching it up with white

fingernail polish.

* “If you have a picture

frame that just won’t stay

straight, cut the eraser tip

off of a pencil and glue the

flat (not the domed) side to

the back of your frame at

the bottom. For stubborn

frames, use one at each corner.

Then re-hang. Once

you situate it on the wall,

the erasers keep the frame

from slipping to either side.

It works great.” -- R.I. in

California
