Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

Support Local Businesses

Small businesses are often considered the

backbone of America. They provide culture

to neighborhoods and offer unique services.

According to the United States Census Bureau,

they make up 99.7% of the country’s employer

firms.

Unfortunately, as COVID-19 roared through

the nation in early , health oficials asked

non-essential businesses to close their doors.

Without the support of their customers, many

were forced to shudder their operations

permanently.

The virus’s impact affected small businesses

in almost every industry. The National

Academy of Sciences of the United States of

America surveyed more than 5,800 companies

to find out their financial status. Here are a ew

o the staggering findings.

• On average, businesses reported having

reduced their active employment by 39%.

The median firm with monthly epenses

over $10,000 only had cash to withstand

roughly two weeks of closures.

• About 41.3% of businesses reported that

they were temporarily closed; 1.8% reported

permanent closures related to COVID-19.

• Seventy percent of respondents planned on

requesting funding from the Paycheck Protection

Program included in the CARES Act.

As the businesses around your community begin

opening up, you can help welcome them

back and encourage them to thrive by showing

your support in multiple ways.

Shop Local

Try your best to keep dollars in the local community

by buying from vendors in the neighborhood.

Check their websites for restrictions,

as many still encourage social distancing by

offering curbside pickups or home delivery.

Look for ways to make your purchases online

through their services and stay safe while

retrieving them to help lessen the spread and

limit human interaction.

Increase Your Tips

Since most hospitality positions rely on tips

to supplement their base income, paying

more for services can help their bottom line.

Consider increasing your contributions for

servers and delivery workers, even if you’re

only picking up a meal curbside.

Be Patient

As small businesses push through adversity,

many have relied on skeleton crews to

continue their operations. Be patient if service

is slow by planning for meals and waiting for

items to become available for purchase.

Campaigns to “shop local” are often rooted in encouraging locals to support the small

businesses in their communities. Consumers no doubt recognize that such support

is vital to the survival of small businesses, but they may not realize just how much

thriving local businesses benefit their communities. According to the Small usiness

Economic Impact Study rom American Epress, an average o twothirds o every

dollar spent at small businesses in the United States stays in the local community. That

support can be especially valuable as the world tries to work its way out of a global

recession brought on by the CID9 pandemic. nemployment rates rose signifi

cantly within a month o the orld Health rganiation declaring a pandemic as the

COVID-19 virus rapidly spread across the globe. While large international corporations

were in better position to avoid layoffs, small, locally owned businesses faced an uphill

battle as they tried to remain in operation and retain their staffs. That’s another way

shopping local can benefit local communities. The usiness Alliance or ocal iving

Economies reports that, for every $10 million spent locally, 57 new jobs are created at

local businesses. That’s an important factor to remember as the world tries to recover

from the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ur actions to revent further sread and

get vaccinated will allow us to graduall,

and safel, go about our lives once again, as

laid out in this lan.

Vermont has substantiall comleted vaccination

of its most at-ris residents, including

those over the age of 5 and those with certain

high-ris health conditions, as well as school

emloees, and worers in child care, health

care, long term care and ublic safet sectors.

The states data shows cases, hositaliations

among the 5 age grou, which is nearl

0 comlete. ther regions, lie srael and

the nited ingdom, have seen their case

counts fall considerabl as the aroached

50 vaccination among their oulation.

This is a threshold Vermont is eected to

cross before the end of the month, with 5

of our oulation currentl having received at

least one dose, and are full vaccinated.

niversal guidance also transitions awa

from sector-secific measures, and towards

general mitigation measures across most sectors.

This will mae it easier for organiations

and individuals to understand, imlement and

follow reventive and rotective measures.

ome sectors, lie health care and education,

will retain individual guidance.

e now our businesses need to see the

roected guidance changes and easing of

certain restrictions. Three stes lead to ul ,

The timeline is subect to change, but given

USDA Reopens Sign-up for Coronavirus

Food Assistance Program 2

The U.S. Department of Agriculture

(USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) announced

that signup has reopened for the

Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2

(CFAP 2) as part of the Pandemic Assistance

for Producers initiative. The initial CFAP 2

signup ended on Dec. 11, 2020, but USDA

has reopened sign-up for CFAP 2 for at least

60 days beginning April 5, 2021, for producers

to al or mae modifications to eisting

CFAP 2 applications.

A rogram rovides direct financial

relief to producers due to market disruptions

and associated costs because of COVID-19.

“Most of the crops and livestock raised

in Vermont are eligible commodities for this

program,” said Lana Walden, Acting State

ecutive irector for A. f ou missed

getting an application in last fall, you now

have the opportunity to apply for assistance.

Our staff will help you through the application

process, or if you need to make any modifications

to our eisting alication.

Row crops, livestock, dairy, specialty

crops, aquaculture and more all are eligible

for the CFAP 2, including the recent addition

of pullets and turfgrass sod. Producers are encouraged

to visit farmers.gov/cfap to review

eligible commodities and learn about the payment

structure for each. CFAP 2 is a separate

rogram from the first iteration of the rogram

(CFAP 1) and interested producers must

complete a new application to be eligible for

payment for CFAP 2.

Producers are encouraged to call their local

count A office for guidance on the rocess

to complete an application. Producers also

have the option to visit farmers.gov/cfap and

access the online application portal or learn

about other application options. A call center

is available for producers who would like additional

one-on-one support with the CFAP 2

application process. Please call 877-508-8364

to speak directly with a USDA employee

ready to offer assistance.

Additional CFAP Payments for Beef and

Row-Crop Producers

The Consolidated Appropriations Act,

2021, authorizes an increase in CFAP 1 payment

rates for cattle. Cattle producers with

approved CFAP 1 applications will automatically

receive these payments and do not need

to submit a new application since payments

are based on previously approved CFAP 1

applications. Producers may be asked for additional

information depending on how they

filed the original alication. nformation on

the additional payment rates for cattle can be

found on farmers.gov/cfap.

This act also authorized additional CFAP

assistance of $20 per acre for producers of

eligible A at-rate or rice trigger

commodities. FSA will automatically issue

payments to eligible producers based on the

eligible acres included on their CFAP 2 applications.

Eligible producers do not need to

submit a new CFAP 2 application.

Additional CFAP Actions

FSA has also begun payment processing

alications filed as art of the A Additional

Assistance program in the following

categories:

Alications filed for ullets and turfgrass

sod;

• A formula correction for row-crop producer

applications to allow producers with a non-

Actual Production History (APH) insurance

policy to use 100% of the 2019 Agriculture

Risk Coverage-County Option (ARC-CO)

benchmark yield in the calculation; and

• Sales commodity applications revised to

include insurance indemnities, Noninsured

Crop Disaster Assistance Program payments,

and ildfire and urricane ndemnit rogram

Plus payments.

Additional payments for swine producers

and contract growers under CFAP Additional

Assistance remain on hold and are likely to

reuire modifications to the regulation as art

of the broader evaluation and future assistance;

however, FSA will continue to accept

applications from interested producers.

Service Center staff continue to work with

agricultural producers via phone, email, and

other digital tools. Because of the pandemic,

some USDA Service Centers are open to limited

visitors. Contact your Service Center to

set up an in-person or phone appointment.

Additionally, more information related to US-

DA’s response and relief for producers can be

found at farmers.gov/coronavirus.

Barre Salvation Army In Search of New Location

After exploring a possible move

to a former storefront on Main St.

The Salvation Army is once again

searching for a new location to

serve the Barre community.

Having been situated at 25 Keith

Ave. for the last 39 years The Salvation

Army purchased property

nearby on 75 Main St. Exhaustive

efforts were made including engaging

architects and prospective OF BARRE

®

builders to determine if the Main

St. location would be conducive

to the religious and charitable organization’s

programs and services.

Eventually it was determined that the necessary

renovations would be too extensive

and cost prohibitive to bring the building up

to suitable standards. The only alternative

was to place the Main St. location back on

the market and seek another more affordable

location.

“We were very hopeful that the Main Street

location would work,” said Lt. Chris West, the

ommanding fficer for The alvation Arm

Vermonters Highlight How an Expanded Bottle Bill

Will Harm Our Economy and Environment

Vermonters from the

retail, distribution, craft

brewing and recycling sectors,

highlighted the negative

impacts an expanded

bottle bill will have on

Vermonters and urged

House members to vote no

on H.175, “An Act

Relating to the Beverage

Container Redemption

System.” From raising the

cost of beverages and recycling for consumers,

disrupting the recycling system and

threatening small businesses that are already

struggling, the Vermont business owners

spoke to the fact that expanding the bottle bill

will make Vermont more expensive and harm

At drop-off

our state’s successful recycling system.

Todd Bouton, General Manager of Farrell

Distributing summed up the proposed legislation

stating, “The bottom line is the expanded

bottle bill is bad for our economy and bad for

our environment.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused

record numbers of Vermonters to seek help

from food shelves as food insecurity has

soared. Unfortunately, the expanded bottle bill

will only make Vermonter’s grocery bills

more expensive. The price of water, sports

drinks and juice will significantly increase

under this proposal, with a $1.20 increase for

deposits alone on a case of water. The average

Vermonter can buy a case (24 bottles) of water

for around $3.90 right now at Hannaford’s. If

this bill passes, the price of that case of water

goes up to $5.10. These price increases will

harm consumers as well as our struggling

small store owners by driving customers out

of state where beverages will be cheaper.

Additionally, this legislation misses it’s

intended mark. Rather than providing an

environmental benefit the legislation will

harm Vermont’s successful single stream

recycling system.

“Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law is

working,” said Kim Crosby, environmental

compliance manager from Casella. “Vermont

has some of the highest recycling rates in the

country. Expanding the bottle redemption law

only builds upon a broken and expensive

system and sends our valuable materials for

recycling out of state. Expanding the bottle

bill will disrupt our successful single stream

recycling system and increase the cost of

recycling for Vermonters.”

Finally, the expanded bottle bill will harm

Vermont’s celebrated craft cideries and wineries.

By expanding the bottle bill to cover

ciders and wines a 5-cent deposit will be

imposed on these products for the first time.

This will require these manufacturers to label

all of their bottles and be responsible for collecting

them and paying the handling feed.

This is a burdensome and expensive process

to impose on our small businesses.

“The expanded bottle bill will impose a

burdensome and expensive process on Citizen

Cider and all other cideries and wineries in

Vermont,” said Justin Heilenbach of Citizen

Cider. “This will increase our manufacturing

costs and make it harder to do business here in

Vermont – particularly during the pandemic.

We are here today to urge the House to vote no

on this expanded bottle bill legislation.”

Waterbury Hotel Included in Launch of National “Red Vest

Accessible” Disability-Friendly Designation

The Best Western Plus Waterbury-Stowe of Waterbury received

the Red Vest Accessible designation in recognition of

its efforts to offer a welcoming, accessible facility for those

with a disability, its commitment to public access rights for

legitimate ervice og teams as defined b the Americans

with Disabilities Act (ADA), and its ability to demonstrate

a thorough knowledge of ADA regulations. The designation

was presented by NEADS World Class Service Dogs, a leading,

nationally recognized Service Dog organization.

usinesses are nominated b a erson who has had firsthand

experience with the location, whether they have a disability

or not. Recipients are selected based on a list of criteria

relating to Service Dog accessibility and the staff’s general

knowledge of disability access. Recognition will be given on

a rolling basis throughout the year and Red Vest Accessible

businesses receive a decal to display and recognition on the

Red Vest Accessible website.

“We are pleased to be recognized for our efforts to create

a welcoming and accessible environment for those with a

disability, and our commitment to allowing seamless access

for legitimate, working Service Dog teams,” noted Melissa

Moore, Best Western Plus Waterbury-Stowe General Manager.

“NEADS is very close to my heart and I appreciate their

advocacy for Service Dog teams as well as accessible businesses.”

Moore, who has a hearing disability, works in partnership

with her hearing dog, a Yellow Lab named Ronnie

who was trained by NEADS. The pair was matched in spring

of 2020. In the past year, the hotel has opened with great success

several designated dog-friendly rooms.

ervice animals are defined b the AA as dogs that are

individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people

with disabilities. The work or task a dog has been trained to

provide must be directly related to the person’s disability.

Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional

support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.”

“NEADS is committed to doing everything it can to help all

legitimate Service Dog teams navigate the world without worry,”

says Cathy Zemaitis, NEADS Director of Development.

“NEADS can do this by recognizing places that are welcoming

and accessible and educating businesses about their rights

as well as the rights of people with legitimate Service Dogs

through the Red Vest Accessible program, which we started in

2020. Service Dog owners will be able to recognize the establishment

as a safe place, and proprietors will understand their

own rights – what questions they can and cannot ask when

someone enters with a Service Dog.”

Business Community Letter to Vermont Legislature

in Response to PPP Taxability

Members of the Vermont Legislature,

We, the undersigned organizations, representing cumulatively

more than 9,500 employers with more than 200,000

employees implore you to conform with the federal treatment

of forgiven Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans in the

tax year 2021, just as you did in tax year 2020. This is important

for the following reasons:

Taxing PPP loans would negate the purpose of the program.

When PPP was first created under the CARES Act, the

legislative intention was that these loans would be non-taxable.

Congress saw this as so important to the program’s desired

impact that they took the extraordinary step of reaffirming this

in the subsequent Consolidated Appropriations Act.

Without PPP, the unemployment rates would have been

much higher, more businesses would have closed their doors,

and the economic fallout would have been more severe. As

our state’s unemployment system was strained and crashing,

PPP created a parallel unemployment system to spread the

load, with many employers simply using PPP funds to pay

their employees to “stay home, stay safe.” There is a trauma

associated with losing one’s job, even with UI, PPP kept this

trauma from occurring by keeping employees on the employer’s

payroll. Furthermore, personal income tax revenue to the

state was not decreased due to these loans.

To tax these loans, which were always presented as a taxfree

lifeline, would penalize employers who did the right

thing and now do not have the funds. If these loans were to

be taxable suddenly, most employers would be met with a

surprise tax bill they have no way to pay after a year of being

closed through no fault of their own. To have the loan forgiven

implies that the employer spent the loan, in its entirety,

on payroll and eligible expenses, leaving them with nothing

to show.

Retroactively changing the circumstances around the assistance

will be unfair, inequitable, and create turmoil. The

money to pay tax on these loans is not there as most employers

have done what the program told them to do – spend the

money right away. Given the state is conforming to federal

treatment in TY 2020, those least served by the program and

who only gained access in 2021 will receive inequitable treatment.

An unforeseen tax bill will prolong the economic

impact of the pandemic. Many of the businesses that were

late to access this program have been the hardest hit by the

pandemic and the least served by the program in its earlier

iterations. Finally, businesses had no control over when their

loan is ultimately forgiven, as procedural hurdles prevented

rapid forgiveness, dragging them into 2021 and therefore

receiving that year’s tax treatment.

There is no double benefit. For example, if an employer

has $100,000 of a PPP loan forgiven, they can and should

deduct those expenses. Taxing what otherwise would have

been deductible means that the employer is in a worse place

than if they had laid off employees and sent them to the UI

system. Furthermore, the state already collected revenue from

PPP loans in the form of payroll taxes.

In conclusion, taxing PPP loans would negate the purpose

and promise of the program. Without PPP, the unemployment

rates would have been much higher, more businesses would

have closed their doors, and the economic fallout would have

been more severe. To tax these loans, which were always

presented as a tax-free lifeline, would penalize employers

who did the right thing and now do not have the funds.

Furthermore, retroactively changing the circumstances

around the assistance will be unfair, inequitable, and create

turmoil. Finally, there is no double benefit if they can deduct

payroll and expenses, as not deducting is the equivalent of

paying the loan back in the form of taxes.

We the undersigned organizations, implore you to conform

with the federal treatment of forgiven Paycheck Protection

Program loans in the tax year 2021, just as you did in tax year

2020.

Paul Boughton Badger

Paul Boughton Badger,

beloved husband, brother,

father and grandfather, passed away

peacefully at his home on April 13, 2021,

in the same room where he was born 87

years before. He was surrounded by his

wife, children and grandchildren. A lifelong

resident of Norwood and the patriarch

of a large and loving family, he is

survived by his devoted wife of 32 years,

Diane Badger, his children, Paul Badger and his wife Joan of

North Attleboro, MA; John Badger and his wife Maria of

Norwood, MA; Erika Hession and her husband Tommy of

Needham, MA; and Greg Zaff and his wife Sonja of

Cambridge, MA. He is also survived by his sisters Leslie

Cardoni and Faith Garvin, as well as over 32 nieces and nephews

and their children. He was predeceased by his siblings,

Knight, Priscilla, Jenny, Shirley, Charlie, and Allen. He will

be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Paul Badger,

Stephanie Badger, Jerome Jackson, Cameron Badger, Zachary

Badger, Jake Hession, Griffen Hession, and Kristina Zaff.

Paul was born in Norwood, MA on March 13, 1934, to Knight

Abbott and Flora (Boughton) Badger, and he graduated from

Norwood High School in 1951. Paul grew up milking cows,

shoveling stalls and bailing hay on his family’s farm – Gay

Farm Dairy and Orchards. After high school, he enlisted in

the Air Force where he was stationed in Laredo, Texas as an

airplane mechanic. After the service, he started his own construction

company, P.B. Badger General Contracting, a business

he ran for over 25 years. He also owned a tractor dealership

and real estate leasing company and was proudly relied

upon to plow the driveways of many grateful Norwood and

Westwood residents, culminating with a renowned, non-stop

two week stint on the back of his Allis Chalmers Tractor in

the Blizzard of ‘78. Paul’s heart always sang in the Green

Mountains of Vermont. Few Massachusetts residents have

ever put more miles on their vehicles driving north on Route

89. Thirty years ago, he and Diane began construction on a

summer home on a hilltop in Barre, VT, doing the majority of

the work themselves. Everywhere Paul went, he looked for

ways to contribute and touch lives. In Barre, he served on the

Zoning Board of Appeals and the Board of Civil Authority

and volunteered his services as an elections official and

Justice of the Peace. With little fanfare, in his characteristically

quiet and dedicated way, Paul spent more than two

decades associated with the Barre Evangelical Free Church.

Paul’s involvement in Vermont led to many lifelong friendships.

Paul spent quality time in the sky as a flight instructor and

regular at Wiggins Airways in Norwood. He spread his wings

there and shared the lessons he learned in the cockpit with his

nephew, Rob Nolfi, who, today, is a distinguished career-long

pilot at Delta Airlines. Love of flying aside, Paul’s happiest

days were on the ground with family. His Clapboardtree

Street home was always open for business, no appointments

necessary. 36 Clapboardtree was a multi-functional place – a

destination at various times of the year for Lobster Bakes,

Tennis Tournaments (Paul built a court in his backyard), weddings,

Sunday breakfasts, sledding outings in the winter,

mini-bike and go kart gatherings in spring, summer and fall.

So many people just seemed to end up there, feeling welcome

and loved. Paul will be remembered by so many whose lives

he touched, most especially by his grandchildren who will

hold their beloved Papa always in their hearts. Donations may

be made in Paul’s memory to the Old Colony Hospice at:

Kenneth Blaisdell

East Randolph, VT - We lost a very special

man on Saturday, April 10 with the

passing of Kenneth Blaisdell. Born at

home on his sister’s first birthday, he

began his journey of a life surrounded by

the love of his family which only grew.

He lived in East Randolph most of his

life other than a few years in Panton

where he wanted to try farming on a

larger scale, but always missed home

until he returned. He was a man that dedicated his entire life

to agriculture and helping others enjoy it.

Always working to get ahead, he took the time to enjoy life

with his family and friends. An afternoon fishing the brooks

in Chelsea, hunting the hillsides of his property, visiting family

and friends especially if there was a dinner involved.

He spent his life helping those he cares about in a way others

would never know there was help given. There have been

many stories of how he helped people have the farms they

have today, helped them get started sugaring, helped people

expand their dreams, gave advice that was sound and got

them going forward, gave them a gun to enjoy hunting that he

had just won, or just stopped in to give a hug right when it was

needed most.

His love for his family runs deep. Always just a phone call

away for anything you need, didn’t miss an event that was

important to you and called to check in making sure to leave

you a message that would make you smile. He was there in

your times of celebration and when you needed support, most

times without even needing a call. There were some folks that

he took on as family over the years that he met along his travels

whether it was someone at a neighboring farm, an employee or

those he met while hunting in Newfoundland. Once you were

in his life as family you kept that special status.

The roads of East Randolph were where you could usually

find him going between fields in the non-winter months.

Sometimes in his pickup but usually on a John Deere tractor;

always ready with that big smile, a twinkle in his eye and a

quick wave. Many times, he was sitting on the side of the

road chatting with someone that had come along and stopped,

usually for longer than they planned! He loved to go to a

good auction or event that he knew would have plenty of

people in attendance. Those were great opportunities for him

to catch up on everyone and get the rest of the story that he

may have heard a part of!

There will be no services to respect his wishes. A future

celebration this summer is being considered. Arrangements

are being done by family friends at Boardway & Cilley in

Chelsea, VT.

Ken loved going to annual fundraising raffles especially if

betting could be involved, loved hunting, and especially loved

impacting young people. For those that would like to donate

in his memory please consider making a donation to the

Vermont Federation of Sportsmen Club – Green Mountain

Conservation Camp Fund to be used for scholarships for

youth to attend Conservation Camp. They can be mailed to

VTFSC 14 Strafford Ave Morrisville, VT 05661.

Amy Blanchard Darley -

Dancer, Loving Mother and

Grandmother, Champion of Women

and Children

Worcester, VT - Amy Blanchard Darley

passed away on April 3rd, 2021 at 66

years of age. Her death was an unexpected

shock to her family, friends, and

the larger community in Vermont to

which she dedicated her personal and

professional life.

Amy was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on

June 17, 1954, the eldest of three siblings.

Her family moved to Schenectady, New

York and then Long Island. She graduated early from high

school to study dance at the Tisch School of the Arts at New

York University. She left Tisch to travel the country with the

New York Street Theater, and was a lifelong lover of dance

and movement.

She met her first husband, Henry Chapin, at Pinewoods

Dance Camp. She gave birth to their son Simeon in 1976 in

Watertown, Massachusetts where they lived for a short time.

Their daughter Willa was born in Cavendish in 1978 at the

Glimmerstone historic mansion, an artist collective at the

time. With two young children, Amy and Henry worked at

Tamarack Farm, a camp for young adults at Farm &

Wilderness in Plymouth, VT, where Amy established and ran

the organic gardens and camp gardening curriculum, and

rejoiced in the daily ritual of song.

After they moved to North Montpelier, Amy continued her

development as an environmental educator and artist at

Goddard College, and immersed herself in the local arts community.

She later became a founding member of the Onion

River Arts Council, and spread her joy of movement and

artistic expression with children as an Artist-in-Residence and

later Coordinator of Artists in Schools for the Vermont Arts

Council.

After separating from Henry, Amy and her children

remained in Vermont, settling in Plainfield. She soon met and

fell in love with Avram Patt. The family moved to Worcester

in 1989, and that winter Amy and Avram were married in the

living room of their home on West Hill Road. The family

lived there as Simeon and Willa grew, attended school, and

later began their own lives. Worcester remained their home

until her passing.

Amy’s love for children was ignited as a mother. She continuously

encouraged her children to be curious, explore, and

find themselves and their unique paths in life. She extended

this care for childhood to her professional life. Amy joined

the non-profit that became the Family Center of Washington

County where she served six years, first as a Parent Educator

and Playgroup Leader, then Reach Up Specialist, and later the

first Washington County Success by Six Coordinator.

In 1996 she joined Senator Jim Jeffords’ staff as his Social

Service Coordinator. For the next ten years, until the Senator

retired, Amy championed the needs of children, women,

families, and seniors within the state, and she fought for their

representation and support in state and federal policy and

budgets. She was a builder of bridges, mentor to many and

fierce in her defense of resources, opportunity, and equity for

women, children, and low-income Vermonters.

She joined state government as the Director of Child Care

Licensing at the Department for Children and Families.

Before retiring in 2016, Amy’s work focused on food insecurity

at the 3SquaresVT Program, where she trained district

eligibility workers.

Amy and Avram shared years of companionship and

enjoyed traveling. They took annual trips to Cape Hatteras,

North Carolina in the summer and Culebra, Puerto Rico in

the winter. After much lobbying, Amy convinced Avram to go

to Europe in 2019 – a life long dream fulfilled.

A constant learner, with curiosity and a thirst for understanding,

she often joked that she had a “PhD in Life”. Amy

loved gathering her family together and deeply enjoyed time

with her children and grandchildren to whom she was known

as Nana – inheriting the name she called her grandmother.

She was over-brimming with life, loving movies and popcorn,

sharing good books, enjoying word play and jokes, taking

pictures, gardening, relishing time in nature and maybe

most of all giving deeply thoughtful presents and messages of

love to dear ones.

Since her passing, Amy’s friends, colleagues, and neighbors

have all used similar words in their remembrances of her:

Joyful. Bright. Engaging. Passionate. Infectious. Caring.

Exuding kindness and love. Radiant smile. Funny!! Big

thinker. Encouraging. Always curious. Shining light.

This is how we remember Amy, because that is who she

was, and still is, in our hearts.

Amy was predeceased by her parents Lois Meehan Darley

and John Wilmerton Darley, and is survived by her husband

Avram Isaac Patt; her son Simeon Darley Chapin, daughterin-law

Ela Abrams Chapin, and grandsons Ari Tobias Chapin

and Ezra Kai Chapin; her daughter Willa Ruth Darley Chapin,

son-in-law Clancy Ian De Smet, and granddog Arlo; her sister

Lori Templeton Darley and brother-in-law Larry Leon; her

brother John William Darley, sister-in-law Elizabeth Jones

Darley, and nephews Chris, Will, and Jack Darley; her best

friend Barbara Asen; and her furry canine companion Hobie.

The family requests memorial donations in her name are

made to Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, the

Family Center of Washington County, and the Vermont Arts

Council.

An online memorial celebration of Amy’s life and memory

will be held on May 1 at 4:00 p.m. Please visit http://bit.ly/

ABDobituary for more details.

In advance of the memorial, all are invited to share a

memory or tribute here: http://bit.ly/ABDkudoboard.

Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Clinics Cancelled

Through Friday, April 23

State officials announced that Vermont will follow the recommendation

of the Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention and extend the pause on the Johnson & Johnson

COVID-19 vaccine for an additional week. The federal pause

is in lace to allow the s Advisor ommittee on

Immunization Practices the time it needs to gather more data

about reported side effects. The committee will meet again

next week.

This means that all Vermont Johnson & Johnson appointments

will be cancelled through Friday, April 23. Anyone who

had an appointment cancelled through the state registration

system should call the Health Department at 855-722-7878.

The department is working hard to open as many additional

appointments as possible for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines

and expects everyone impacted by this pause will be able to

get an appointment by the end of April.

People who made appointments with CVS or Walgreens

should follow the harmacies instructions about rescheduling.

Anyone who prefers to make a new appointment through

the state registration system can call the Health Department.

Please be sure you have only one appointment scheduled.

All two-dose (Pfizer and Moderna) vaccine appointments

will continue as previously scheduled.

The CDC and the Food & Drug Administration recommended

the pause on Tuesday, after six cases were reported

in the U.S. of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals

who had received the J&J vaccine. The pause will

also allow time for health care providers to receive and

understand guidance and information on how to recognize

and treat such patients appropriately, and to report any further

severe events they may be seeing in people who have

received the J&J vaccine.

• • •

“We know it may be difficult to hear about more uncertainty

right now, but this is science at work,” said Health

Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. “This extreme caution is

being taken to make sure we have all the information needed

as we move forward in our vaccination efforts safely.”

As of April 12, there have been 7.2 million individuals in

the U.S. who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Six

people developed a rare and severe type of blood clot called

cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) within about two

weeks of receiving their vaccine. In these cases, the blood clot

was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets

(thrombocytopenia). All six cases occurred among women

between the ages of 18 and 48.

Although these side effects are extremely rare, the FDA

and CDC recommend that people who have received the

Johnson & Johnson vaccine who develop severe headache,

abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three

weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.

VTF&W Offers Introduction to Bullhead Fishing Clinics

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is holding a

series of introductory bullhead fishing clinics this spring.

These clinics are open to people of all ages and levels of

experience, including those who are completely new to fishing.

Participants will learn about aquatic ecology, fishing

regulations and techniques, fish identification, and much

more.

Each program will explore different fishing styles used to

target bullhead, which are found in many of the shallower

lakes, ponds and rivers of Vermont. Brown Bullhead, like

other species in the catfish family are nocturnal bottom feeders,

so the programs will take place in the evening when they

are beginning to be active.

“The arrival of spring brings with it increased opportunities

to catch bullhead as they begin moving into their spawning

grounds,” said Corey Hart, Education Specialist.

Equipment will be provided, but participants are encouraged

to bring their own rods. Face coverings and social distancing

are all required. Participants should also dress for the

• • •

weather and bring a flashlight or headlamp.

Space is limited to the first 25 registrants and seminars fill

up quickly, so sign up as early as possible. Pre-registration is

required and can be completed at www.vtfishandwildlife.

The Vermont Women’s Fund and the Vermont Community Foundation to

Host This Way Up on April 28th to Focus on Women Entrepreneurship

On April 28th at 5:00 p.m. ET, the Vermont Women’s Fund

and the Vermont Community Foundation will co-host This

Way Up, a virtual event to examine the potential of women’s

entrepreneurship, the opportunities and pitfalls associated

with business ownership, and why gender impacts financial

outcomes. Moderated by Vermont Public Radio’s Jane

Lindholm, the event will feature four women business owners

from southern Vermont.

This topic is a bit of a mystery in Vermont as there is no

conclusive data on the number of women-owned businesses

in the state. Based on US Census data, the Change The Story

initiative issued a 2016 report on “Women Business Owners

and the VT Economy,” which showed there are approximately

23,000 women-owned businesses in the state.

“There’s huge potential for women entrepreneurs to create

new businesses, significantly increase their revenues, and hire

an employee or two—and we haven’t adequately focused on

their needs and barriers until now,” says Meg Smith, director

of the Vermont Women’s Fund. “With the right tools and

technical assistance, women entrepreneurs can help grow

Vermont’s economy along with their own communities. And

with job losses among Vermont women among the highest in

the nation, this is the time to expand women entrepreneurship

in our state.”

The Vermont Women’s Fund and the Community

Foundation are excited to have four leaders from this community

participate in the event:

• Julie Lineberger of Wheel Pad in Wilmington

• Jewelz Johnson of Jamaican Jewelz Food Truck and

Catering in Bellows Falls

• Lisa Lorimer of MamaSezz Foods (and former owner of

Vermont Bread Company) in Brattleboro

• Nancy Koziol of couch + cork in Bennington

More evidence of women-owned businesses from the

region are represented in a gift box that comes with the price

of a $20 ticket. Ticketholders will receive by mail a mix of

products from Tavernier Chocolates, Small Batch Organics,

Dorset Daughters, JJHapgood General Store and Eatery,

OWL Energy Bars, and Rosie’s Wonders Connection Cards.

This Way Up is underwritten by local sponsors: Bank of

Bennington, Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation,

Mascoma Bank, and Cabot Cheese.

Governor, Legislature Honor VSAC’s

Educational Opportunity Center

Governor Phil Scott and the Vermont Legislature

are celebrating 30 years of VSAC’s

Educational Opportunity Center with a proclamation

and concurrent resolution, naming

the week of April 12, Educational Opportunity

Center Week in Vermont.

Vermont Student Assistance Corp. is marking

three decades of success in the Educational

Opportunity Center, a federally funded

outreach program that helps Vermont adults

access college and career training services

that will build the foundation for successful

careers.

It’s EOC Week in Vermont“As we work

to grow our economy, the Educational Opportunity

Center is an important resource to

help Vermonters gain the skills and training

needed to succeed in the workforce and career

opportunities in Vermont,” Governor

Scott said. “Combined with the Advancement

Grant, the EOC program guides and provides

funding for Vermonters on their chosen career

pathways.”

The pandemic has highlighted the critical

importance of education and training that all

Vermonters must have to fill critical roles in

our communities – like health care, mental

health, technology, and manufacturing, noted

Scott Giles, VSAC president and CEO. As

VSAC’s partners at the McClure Foundation

have pointed out, all of Vermont’s highgrowth,

high-wage jobs require education and

training after high school. And, as our state

recovers, these jobs will be in greater demand

and, very importantly, they provide security

and good wages.

“It’s timely to observe this important milestone

now, when more than ever, Vermonters

are focused on the skills and training they need

to emerge successfully from the economic

hardships caused by the pandemic,” said Scott

Dear Editor,

I am especially grateful that I live in Vermont, a state whose

laws and public policy support an individual’s right to make

their own reproductive decisions and a state that upholds our

constitutional right to privacy. Here politics do not interfere

with a woman’s health decisions nor are others, strangers,

allowed to dictate or control those decisions. Because of this,

access to pregnancy termination is a personal and medical

decision and there are no major legal abortion restrictions in

our state that interfere with optimal health care options supporting

those decisions.

According to a Pew Research Center poll, 70% of

Vermonters believe that abortions should be safe, legal, and

accessible, 26% oppose that, and 4% are undecided. Those

numbers reflect in our state laws and policies which sustain

the idea of majority rule. It is especially disturbing to me

when the minority, with notions that promote sexism and

misogyny, want to impose those views on the majority.

The idea that in order to prevent abortions, women just

need to say “no” is just as unhelpful and ineffective as saying

that if men really supported banning abortions, they would get

Dear Editor,

On March 2, 2021, I was one of the first people to cast his

ballot. The first time I entered my ballot in the machine the

machine rejected it. I was outside campaigning for over 12

hours. During that time over 30 people who voted for me had

their ballots rejected 1-3 times. Once the polls closed the candidates

were allowed inside the auditorium where the voting

took place. A friend of mine was working the polls. This

friend told me that they had problems with both machines all

day long. My friend has run for office, held office and been

involved in politics for 15 years. My friend told me they have

had these same problems with these machines since they got

them. They’ve been using these machines for 12 or 13 years.

12 or 13 years of problems with these machines rejecting ballots

multiple times and I’m the first one to bring this problem

to the public’s attention. This is not right. I called the

Secretary of State to complain. I told an employee of the

Secretary of State everything I typed above and this person

said they thought I had a legitimate complaint. This person

Those were among the key reasons the Vermont Tax

Structure Commission recommended recently that the state

abolish the homestead property tax and move to an incomebased

school tax for all resident homeowners.

We support the Commission’s recommendation. We also

urge everyone, but especially policymakers, to read the final

report. It addresses many persistent questions that have

swirled around education funding for almost 25 years.

The Commission’s first recommendation around education

funding is to abandon the hybrid system of homestead taxes

for homeowners. Low- and moderate-income homeowners

pay school taxes that are adjusted to reflect their income—that

is, their ability to pay. Higher income homeowners pay a traditional

property tax, which, for many of them, is less than the

income-adjusted tax would be.

The Commission said the current system has resulted in

“bewildering complexity.” It called for using a single tax

base—which in theory could be either property or income—

and the commission said after thoughtful analysis: “to maintain

equity, that single tax base should be income.”

Under the current system, along with the school property

tax rate, an income tax rate is calculated for each town based

on its per-pupil spending. Towns with the same per-pupil

spending have the same tax rates, and if Town A spends more

or less than Town B, its income tax rate is proportionally

higher or lower than Town B’s rate.

In theory, it sounds simple. In reality, it requires hard-tofollow

income adjustments to homeowners’ property taxes. If

we moved to a system where all residents paid the incomebased

school tax, everyone would know by Town Meeting

Day the income rate they’d be required to pay if they

approved the budget proposed for the coming school year.

vasectomies, would understand that “no” means “no”, and

would therefore learn to keep their genitals in their jeans.

Certainly, all of those suggestions might prevent sexual

encounters resulting in pregnancies, but they are all inadequate.

Help in preventing abortions can best be achieved

through sex education, insurance coverage for family planning,

access to birth control and emergency contraception,

and promotion of programs that curb domestic violence and

sexual abuse. We can also make a conscious cultural commitment

to refuse to view people as “objects”. Like undoing

systemic racism, the dismantling of our culture’s support for

sexism and misogyny requires a major investment of time,

reflection, collaboration, and energy.

Because people are people, sometimes the unplanned happens.

And when that does, I am grateful that when we must

make the hard decisions about our bodies and our lives, our

state and the majority of our citizens support our right to personal,

individual determinations about what is best for us.

Dottye R. Ricks

went on to tell me the following: the State of Vermont purchased

these machines in 2008 from a company in Salem,

New Hampshire; the company, LHS, supplies all the voting

machines in the Northeast; I asked this person who made the

machines , this person said these voting machines were made

and or previously owned by Dominion. There are operating

problems with these voting machines and I seem to be the

only one with enough courage to bring this to the public’s

attention. There are lots and lots and lots of people that think

there’s something wrong, I’m just the only one speaking up.

On March 17th I filed a complaint in Superior Court. On

March 26th Barre City was served with this complaint. On

April 9th Barre City asked the court to dismiss this complaint.

Every Barre City Citizen should ask Barre City Why ? Thank

you for your time and consideration.

Ideally, we’d have a system where school taxes could be withheld

from people’s paychecks, just as income taxes are now,

and school tax bills could be settled each spring during tax

season.

While the Tax Structure Commission made a good case for

an income-based school tax, it also challenged some of the

conventional wisdom surrounding the property tax—namely

that property value is a good measure of people’s wealth and

their ability to pay. It is not.

The Commission’s full analysis of “Income, Assets, and

Ability to Pay” is available here. Its conclusion is that for

families with few assets, the value of their home overstates

their net worth and ability to pay because it doesn’t take into

account mortgages and other household debts. And for families

with high net worth, the value of the primary residence

represents a small fraction of totals assets and therefore understates

the ability to pay.

Finally, whether it’s the current hybrid system or other

ideas for school finance that proved unworkable, the report

notes the contortions Vermont has put itself through to devise

property tax systems that behave like an income tax. We have

tried adjustments, caps, rebates, and prebates—all of which,

one way or another, were tied to people’s incomes because

policy makers have recognized for over half a century that

ability to pay goes hand in hand with fairness.

If we want a tax that behaves like an income tax, let’s just

have an income-based school tax. It will be simpler, fairer,

and we can just call it what it is.

Vermont Senate Advances Two Landmark Constitutional

Aedet or udaetal ht

The Vermont Senate voted to advance two history-making

amendments to the Vermont constitution: Proposal 2, a declaration

of rights clarifying the prohibition on slavery and indentured

servitude, and Proposal 5, a declaration of the right

to personal reproductive liberty.

Proposal 2, “Prop 2”, passed 29-1 and proposes the following

amendment:

“That all persons are born equally free and independent,

and have certain natural, inherent, and unalienable rights,

amongst which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty,

acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing

and obtaining happiness and safety; therefore slavery and

indentured servitude in any form are prohibited.”

Proposal 5, “Prop 5”, passed 26-4 and proposes the following

amendment:

“That an individual’s right to personal reproductive autonomy

is central to the liberty and dignity to determine one’s

• • •

own life course and shall not be denied or infringed unless

ustified b a comelling tate interest achieved b the least

restrictive means.”

The amendments will next head to the House for a vote.

If the House votes in support of each proposed amendment,

each will be placed on the November 2022 general election

ballot. The constitutional amendments will then be voted on

by the people of Vermont.

The Vermont Constitution is a declaration of the rights and

liberties of its citizens. The Constitutional Amendment process

ultimately allows voters to make meaningful changes to

the Constitution that have a direct impact on the lives of Vermont

citizens by protecting our fundamental rights.

If passed, Prop 2 and Prop 5 would each be a landmark victory

for fundamental human rights in Vermont. We commend

our Democratic senators who have worked hard in their support

of these proposals.


The Legislature’s Irresponsibility On Pensions

By Don Turner

The last thing you do in the middle of a crisis is kick the

can down the road. Yet, that’s exactly what the Legislature

just did on Vermont’s mounting pension liabilities.

Earlier this year, State Treasurer Beth Pearce delivered a

long overdue message to the Legislature--calling for painful

cuts in order to keep the state employees’ and state teachers’

pensions operation. This comes years after resisting calls for

structural reform to the pension system.

However, the Treasurer deserves recognition for having the

courage to at least present a plan. The Legislature did too--

with leadership in the House Government Operations

Committee unveiling its own similar plan.

But, the Legislature’s plan broke our promises to state

employees and teachers. It called for painful cuts and unfair

modifications to arrangements that the state had assured its

workers it would cover. Unions, state employees, and teachers

were rightly outraged.

However, instead of considering other options to reform the

pension system, Legislative Leadership caved to political

pressure.

For example, Lieutenant Governor Molly Gray issued a

vague, ambiguous statement criticizing the plan--with absolutely

no suggestion for any substantive alternatives. Senate

President Pro Tem Becca Balint did much the same. And,

unsurprisingly, House Speaker Jill Krowinski ditched the

plan--effectively throwing her own colleagues in the House

Government Operations Committee under the bus. She called

for Montpelier’s favorite tool--a “task force”--which really

means doing nothing now. It will also allow the Legislative

Majority to deflect responsibility and start the blame game. I

am sure that Governor Scott will be their first target.

In response, Treasurer Pearce rightly noted her disappointment

in the Legislature’s inability to come to an agreement.

The Treasurer is correct. By delaying action this year, the

Legislature is only making our problems worse. We can’t

afford to break our promises, but we certainly can’t afford to

delay action either.

There are other options out there--options that don’t break

our promises and avoid painful cuts. The Legislature could

give state employees an option to switch to less-expensive

Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)

During much of western history, “til death do us part”

was a non-negotiable fact.

Now, it is little more than a cool-sounding slogan

that we say because it’s in the wedding script.

We are supposed to view the lack of respect for marriage

vows and the plague of broken homes as a terrible development.

But it’s not that simple.

The bad thing about divorce culture is that it has led to the

dissolution of the lower middle class. In 1970, there was a

solid chance that a working-class child was growing up in a

stable family with enough money to

get by because both parents were

contributing to the household.

Today, that same child only resides

with one parent and lives in a tenuous

world of Dollar Stores and overdraft

fees.

On the other hand, I think it’s fair

to say that physical abuse within

families has been reduced during

the past half century. That wonderful

change is largely due to the fact

that angry, frustrated men can leave

before things get violent – or be

kicked to the curb by their brave

spouses.

I don’t think divorce culture is

necessarily a bad thing. I’ve known

a lot of divorced people. Most of

them remarried. And most are happier

than during their first marriage.

Including me.

“Kramer vs. Kramer” is not what

I was expecting. Writer/director Robert Benton has given us a

loving, passionate pro-divorce movie.

When we meet Ted Kramer (Dustin Hoffman), his values

are all out of whack. He thinks only of his career. He is a

copywriter on Madison Ave. and he has just been put in charge

of a huge account.

Ted comes home – late as always – to tell his wife Joanna

(Meryl Streep) the good news. She tells him that she is leaving

immediately and forever.

Suddenly, Ted is trying to be Don Draper and Mr. Mom to

his five-year-old son Billy at the same time. And it’s not possible.

retirement allowances until we reach an 80% funded ratio (a

far better alternative than deep cuts); slightly tweak up the

retirement age to match Social Security; and perhaps most

importantly, phase-in reasonable increases to employee contribution

rates over time. I outlined all of these ideas earlier

this year.

I would also encourage modifications to prevent future

bureaucrats from gaming the pension system. It is far too

common for agencies to promote or move staff around at the

end of their career to inflate their retirement pension.

Modifying the system to determine beneficiaries pension

based on the average of their annual salary over their career

versus the highest two years would be more equitable to all

and would not allow someone to manipulate the pension system.

Put simply, there are other options out there. But instead of

considering them, House lawmakers came up with a rushed,

poorly-designed proposal--excluding key stakeholders from

the process--and then abandoned it and established a measly

“task force.”

While abandoning a bad plan is a good step, opting for no

plan which will cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars

annually is not an acceptable alternative. I believe everyone

involved in this conversation understands what needs to be

done to stabilize the pensions now. The is problem lays with

the political fortitude to get it done.

Moving forward, the Legislature should make sure the task

force process is inclusive, open and transparent, and considers

all ideas as timing is of the essence.

But the very fact that we’re in this situation is a sign of

failed Legislative leadership. Let’s hope they wise up and

incorporate some realistic, substantive ideas for next year--or

else it will haunt them in the 2022 election.

This commentary is by Don Turner, a former Republican

state representative from Milton, former House minority

leader, current Milton town manager and longtime member of

the Milton Fire and Rescue departments. He was a candidate

for lieutenant governor in 2018

Robert Benton authentically shows us

the experience of suddenly being single.

Ted has sleepless nights and difficulty

doing household tasks that Joanna used to

do. Instead of looking in the mirror, he

blames Joanna’s friend who left her husband

the year before.

The first months are brutal and painful

to watch. Ted and his son are angry and

they take it out on each other.

But slowly and organically, Ted and

Billy bond. Dustin Hoffman does a fantastic

job of showing us a man who stops

prioritizing work and starts prioritizing

parenting without ever having to tell us.

“Kramer vs. Kramer” is not a He Said/

She Said courtroom drama. It is an ode to

fatherhood. And that’s just what we need

right now. We live in a society that values

motherhood much more than fatherhood,

and a lot of people are suffering due to this

strange misconception.

I am not the ideal audience for this movie. When someone

I know is having a baby, all I can think is how bad I feel for

them. They will be dealing with loud, expensive human children

instead of quiet, wonderful cats. However, Ted and Billy

won me over with their sweetness and love.

“Kramer vs. Kramer” won Best Picture in 1979. Some

people might view this as a low point in Academy history

when they were obsessed with the First World problems of

white men like them. But the film actually does deserve the

honor. “Kramer vs. Kramer” beat out “Apocalypse Now.”

Oscar got it right; this little movie about a happy divorce is

first rate and pretty important.

A daughter, Haven Qua, was born on 04/07/2021 to

Elisa Fantoni and Matthew Qua of Barre.

A daughter, Aurelia Rae Barberi, was born on 4/12/2021

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) Whether a waiting period

is taking longer than

expected, or just seems

that way, the anxious

Lamb would do well to

create a center of calm within her- or himself, and not do

anything rash.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Practical matters dominate

the week, but cultural activities also are favored, especially

those that can be shared with someone special in the Bovine’s

life. Some important news might be forthcoming.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to know more

about a possible career move in order to see if it offers a

real opportunity or just a change. You’re sure to get lots of

advice -- some of it good -- but the decision must be yours.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The arrival of hoped-for

good news about a loved one dominates most of the week

and provides a great excuse for the party-loving Moon

Child to plan a special event to celebrate.

ul to August eos and eonas rushing to finalize

their plans might want to think about slowing down

the pace, or risk overlooking an important consideration

that could become a sore point down the line.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The week’s challenges

call for logical approaches. But sentiment also has

its place. Sharing memories with a special someone, for

example, strengthens the bond between you.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A brand-new approach

to a problem could have a good chance of succeeding

if it’s based on a solid foundation of fact to strengthen

its potential for standing up to scrutiny.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A favorable

report should give your optimism an important boost as

you confront another phase of a challenge. Don’t be timid

about accepting advice from someone you trust.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You

might want to target another goal if your current aim is

continuall being deected. ut sta with it until ou find

that first sign of an oening, and then follow through.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although offers

of advice might not always please the usually surefooted

Goat, good counsel is always worth considering,

especially from those whose experience can be invaluable.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Don’t rush to

make up for lost time. Your productivity can be measured

not only by what you do, but how you do it. Move carefully

until the job is done the way you like it.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Emerging facts about

someone you know might cause you to rethink your relationship.

But remember to make judgments in context of a

full situation, not just on scraps of data.

acquiring beautiful things as well as for your generosity to

NATURAL HEALTH CORNER

JOSHUA SINGER

Happy Spring everyone. Now there is

thawing and the circulation on the surface

resumes. In Chinese Medicine, this time

of year is considered the time the Liver

organ system is most activated. This medical

perspective takes a more holistic and

somewhat different view of the body than

we typically think of in the West. Though

different, this is still an applicable and valuable view. Aside

from the physical organ itself, the organ system encompasses

other aspects of the body, including the sense organs and

secific emotions. o the health of the sense organs, for

example, is related to the health of the various internal organ

systems. (Notice how the organ system is capitalized in writing

to distinguish it from the organ itself.) For example, the

Liver is responsible for helping metabolize fats and toxins,

but also for the health of the eyes, the tendons and ligaments,

for keeping circulation happening effectively, and for managing

healthy anger.

EYE HEALTH AND THE LIVER

In Spring, practitioners of Chinese Medicine understand

that this is a good time to support the health of the eyes. As

one of our five senses, vision is deended uon for interacting

with the world around us. When the health of our eyes is

compromised and our vision is limited in some way, either

acutely or chronically, it can be very scary. Most of us take

for granted that we can see clearly, but for those with visual

loss, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, night blindness,

as examples, any form of help is welcomed.

I’ve observed the positive effects of using the various tools

of Chinese Medicine, like acupuncture, moxibustion, and

herbs, to improve eye health. As described, the health of the

iver is evaluated and treated. ecific oints throughout the

bod are stimulated with fine, stainless steels acuuncture

needles for this purpose. Also certain herbs can be ingested

to support eye and Liver health. Two herbs that you may be

familiar with that are commonly used for eye disorders are

wolfberr fruit goi berr and chrsanthemum ower.

HERBS FOR YOUR EYES

Goji berries are sweet, red, and diamond shaped. They are

nourishing to the Liver blood. In our modern understanding,

there high in antioidants, dietar fiber, roteins,

monounsaturated fats and amino acids. Wolfberry fruit

has high levels of zeaxanthin, lutein, polysaccharides, and

polyphenols, which are known to improve eyesight, prevent

macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. These berries

strengthen the vision, moisten dry eyes, and nourish the liver

and kidneys. Dried wolfberries are easily found in local food

co-ops. They can be eaten as dessert, sprinkled over cereal,

or soaked in hot water and taken as tea.

hrsanthemum ower tastes both sweet and bitter. This

tea has been used in Chinese Medicine for over a thousand

years and is said to prevent aging. This herb is known to

clear heat from the Liver. Chrysanthemum has a long history

of being used to treat blurred or spotty vision. It also

contains beta-carotene and is a good source of vitamin Bs

lie choline, folacin, niacin, as well as riboavin. n hina,

it is common to sip on a cup of chrysanthemum tea for dry

or sore ees after long hours of visual focus. The owers

have anti-inammator roerties and their natural vitamin

content fights germs and infections. A little tea made from

chrysanthemum will make an eye wash that can combat

infections.

WARMING AND NOURISHING

Aside from treating the Liver, the eyes are treated locally

in order to improve circulation and nourishment. Local

stimulation of acupuncture points around the eyes can

imrove blood ow and roer functioning. t is common to

see pressures in the eyes reduce immediately following local

treatment for glaucoma. This can be done with acupuncture,

acupressure, and moxibustion. Moxibustion is a warming

technique, typically using the herb Chinese mugwort. Mugwort

is dried and packed together, then burned and held in

front the eyes to warm and improve blood circulation. Acu-

ressure is a self-thera that can be done at home. ecific

points around the eyes are massaged for the same purposes

as acupuncture and moxibustion. By simply massaging daily

around the bone structure of the eye and lightly massaging

above and below the eyeball itself, this can provide improvement

to the health of your eyes.

Whether you get dry eyes after computer use or have a

degenerative eye condition with the potential of blindness,

these are some time-tested therapies to support the health

of your eyes and vision. As we get more sunny Spring days

ahead and ou find ourself suinting to ee the ecessive

light out, don’t hesitate to protect your eyes with sunglasses.

And please don’t hesitate to contact me to learn more about

the acupressure technique, herbs, moxibustion or acupuncture

mentioned here.

Vaccinated? COVID

Advice Clear as Mud

If you’re confused about COVID vaccine

and when our lives are going to change

for the better, you’re not alone.

We’re considered to be fully vaccinated

once two weeks have passed after the second

dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or

two weeks after the one-dose Johnson &

Johnson.

What’s new is this, per the Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention: If fully

vaccinated, you can be indoors with other

fully vaccinated people without wearing a

mask. You can meet indoors with unvaccinated

people in one household unless one

of those people has a health risk. If you’ve

been around someone who has COVID,

you don’t have to stay away from people or

get tested unless you have symptoms ... or

live in a group setting. In that case, stay

away from others for 14 days and get tested,

even if you don’t have symptoms.

Clear as mud, right?

It gets worse. According to the CDC, as

fabulous as this new vaccine is, even if fully

vaccinated, we still need to wear masks in

public. We still need to social distance. We

still need to avoid medium and large

crowds. We still need to stay out of poorly

ventilated spaces. We should delay travel.

So what’s the holdup? Why are we still

under restrictions after getting the vaccine?

The best I can figure out is that the

answer lies with the COVID variants, the

different versions created as the virus

mutates. It appears that not all of the vaccines

work equally well on all of the variants.

Frankly, some of the vaccines work

rather poorly, depending on which variant

it encounters.

Until scientists figure this out, we still

need to be cautious: wear masks, stay away

from people, stay out of crowds. Except for

getting the vaccine, not much has changed.

“home away from home”

Volunteer safely during the pandemic

Volunteers are vital to the survival of many

charitable organizations. Without people

willing to offer their time and expertise

free of charge, many nonprofits would find

it difficult, if not impossible, to meet their

missions.

The global pandemic that begin in late 2019 and continued

into 2020 changed many aspects of life as the world knew it,

and that includes volunteering. Social distancing measures

and stay-at-home mandates from state and local governments

discouraged people from leaving their homes, while various

health organizations warned aging men and women to stay

home as much as possible. The Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention notes that the risk for severe illness from

COVID-19 increases with age. In recognition of that threat,

many retirees who were heavily involved in volunteering

prior to the pandemic were forced to cease working as volunteers,

which could have a negative effect on their mental

health as the pandemic continues. A report from the Mayo

Clinic Health System noted that adults over age 60 experienced

greater life satisfaction and greater positive changes in

their perceived health as a result of volunteering.

Many people have continued to volunteer during the

pandemic, and those that want to do so can take these steps to

ea with our hsician first. Anone, but eseciall

seniors, who wants to volunteer during the pandemic should

discuss those aspirations with their physicians prior to offering

their services to charitable organizations. Doctors can

discuss the acute and chronic threats posed by the COVID-19

virus and examine each individual’s medical history to help

potential volunteers decide if working with a local charity is

safe. In addition, doctors can check patients for COVID-19

symptoms and even have them tested to make sure they

won’t be putting anyone in danger should they decide to

volunteer.

• Contact the organization prior to volunteering. Some

organizations may not be

allowing potentially at-risk

volunteers to perform inperson

tasks. Contact the

organization you hope to

work with prior to signing up

to confirm our eligibilit,

but also to discuss the safety

protocols they’ve put in place

to protect the health of their

volunteers.

• Monitor your own health.

If you’ve signed up to

monitor your own health.

ealth officials believe the

COVID-19 virus has spread

so rapidly for a number

of reasons, including the

likelihood that many people

have had the virus but shown

no symptoms. Charitable

organizations will no doubt

assess the health of each

volunteer when they show up

to work, but volunteers also

should make such assessments

on their own. Check

safe way to give back that won’t expose volunteers or others

to the COVID-19 virus. Charitable organizations need

behind-the-scenes help just as much as they need volunteers

with their boots on the ground. Virtual volunteers can help

with fundraising efforts and event planning, but also help

charities overcome the logistical challenges of operating and

meeting their missions during the pandemic.

Prior to volunteering during the pandemic, prospective

volunteers can follow numerous steps to ensure volunteering

is safe, both for them and the people they’re trying to help.

VT Fish & Wildlife Teen Conservation Weekend

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department

is offering two new Teen Conservation

Weekends to be held at the Edward F. Kehoe

“We are pleased to announce a fun and

exciting opportunity for teens ages 15 to 17,”

said Hannah Phelps, Camp Coordinator.

“The new Teen Conservation Weekends will

allow us to provide teens with an exciting

weekend of quality environmental education.

Campers will arrive Saturday morning and

immediately begin participating in Hunter

Education programing, before backpacking

out to a remote pond for an evening of camping

and fishing.”

“Teen Conservation Weekends are the perfect

way for teens to unplug and engage with

peers outdoors before heading back to the

classroom,” Phelps added.

Each weekend is limited to 25 participants.

Girls can attend on August 14 and 15, and

WORLD OUTDOORS

boys will be there August 21 and 22. Arrival

time is 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning with

departure time 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

All participants are required to complete

their Hunter and Bowhunter certificates ahead

of time to allow for more hands-on fun

throughout the weekend. Teens will also be

expected to only bring gear they can carry

themselves while backpacking.

The cost for the weekend is $100, which

includes all meals. Sponsorships are available

on a limited basis.

To register for the weekend, email a completed

application found at https://vtfishandwildlife.com/learn-more/conservation-education/teen-conservation-weekend

Director of Vermont State Parks. “This program

gives kids the opportunity to gain confidence

by learning new skills and achieving

Governor Phil Scott, Senator Bernie Sanders Announce

Summer Enrichment Program For Vermont Youth

Summer Camps!

performance & skill camps for ages 6– 18 Details Coming Soon.

page 18 The WORLD April 21, 2021

Governor Phil Scott, Senator Bernie Sanders, Vermont Afterschool

and the Agency of Education outlined a plan to enhance

and expand summertime enrichment opportunities for Vermont

students grades K-12.

In response to the impact of the pandemic on children, youth

and families, Governor Scott, Senator Sanders and other partners

are working to ensure that every child, of every age, has

access to engaging, enriching activities this summer. Knowing

the challenges of this past year, these leaders are committed to

making sure kids can re-connect with themselves, their friends,

and their communities in safe and rewarding ways.

This once-in-a-centur global andemic has been difficult

for everyone, especially our kids. The lack of in-person learning,

the loss of connection with friends and classmates and the

limits on activities and access to everything from nutritious

meals, physical education, sports, drama, music, clubs, and other

social events, have taken a tremendous toll,” said Governor

Scott. “As we enter the last few laps of this pandemic, we want

to do whatever we can to give our kids a great summer that

supports their recovery. I’m very pleased to put this initiative

forward to do just that.”

“It is no secret that this has been one of the most disruptive

years for all of us, but especially for our young people. It is

absolutely essential that we do everything we possibly can to

support Vermont students in the coming months and years as

we recover from these challenges, and that work must start this

summer. That is wh am ver roud to have secured significant

funding for summer programming in the American Rescue

Plan,” said Senator Sanders. “This funding gives us a real

opportunity to create the programs that our students want and

need. Together, we can ensure young people throughout our

state, from our youngest Kindergarteners to our incoming seniors

in high school, have a great summer.”

“We greatly appreciate all that Governor Scott and Senator

Sanders are doing to increase access to summer programs for

Vermont’s children and youth,” said Holly Morehouse, executive

director of Vermont Afterschool. “More than ever, we

need Summer 2021 to be one of connection, engagement, and

learning – of all types – for our children and youth. This summer

should be about fun times with friends, program staff, and

mentors; opportunities for creative enrichment and expression;

healthy meals; daily physical activity; outdoor adventures; career

exploration and job opportunities for older youth; and projects

that allow young people to explore and learn.”

The federal funding, secured by Senator Sanders in the

American Rescue Plan, will allow providers to build summer

programs focused on meeting the needs of Vermont students. In

partnership with Vermont Afterschool, the Agency of Education

will also make $1.5 million of federal funds available in grants

from the state to camps and programs so they can expand access

to all young people, breaking down barriers of geography,

socioeconomics and demographics.

Expansions should include additional slots in programs,

extended hours or weeks, and programs will be supported to

address and accommodate the unique needs of students of all

ages. Through this initiative, school districts can also expand

both academic and social opportunities for students by partnering

with local programs.

Vermont Afterschool will host an interactive website that

families and providers can use to identify available programs in

each area of the state to find the right match for their children.

The Vermont Afterschool website launched and can be accessed

by going here: https://www.vermontafterschool.org/summermatters/.

The site will continue to be populated and updated,

in real time, as more programs are developed or come on-line.

For youth interested in apprenticeships and summer jobs, the

Vermont Afterschool website also identifies those rograms and

camps still looking for summertime staff. A parallel effort with

the Vermont Department of Labor and the Division of Vocational

Rehabilitation offers opportunities to explore careers and

find summer obs.

Excitement Level Reaching New Heights for

62nd Thunder Road Season

Barre’s Thunder Road is closing fast on the

62nd season opener. The Community Bank

N.A. 150 on Sunday, May 2 kicks off a busy

2021 campaign at the track — all of which can

be seen live worldwide on FloRacing.

The new live-streaming partnership is just

one sign of the excitement that’s been building

for months. After a long winter and a 2020

season that saw the challenges of navigating

the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, teams

and fans are ready for a fresh start.

Although health and safety guidelines will

still be in effect for at least the first part of the

season, it hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm

among the Vermont racing community. At the

end of the day, racers want to race. Local stars

such as Jason Corliss, Trampas Demers, Jason

Woodard, and Jamie Davis have been chomping

at the bit to finally get back on the high

banks.

“I’m really excited about it,” Barre’s Corliss

said. “Obviously, our 2020 season went quite

well for us, so we’re definitely excited to get

back to the race track and hopefully see if

we’ve got some of that same mojo going into

this upcoming season. With the start of a new

year, everything kind of resets, and no success

is guaranteed. So we’ve been working hard in

the shop, and we’re prepared to roll up our

sleeves and go to work once we get to the

track.”

“I think the FloRacing deal is great,”

Corliss added. “It’s really cool to be able to

bring the excitement of ‘The Road’ to people

who can’t necessarily make it to Thunder

Road. I know personally, I have family for

whom it’s just too much of a task to travel all

the way to Vermont to catch a race — and if

they did, they’d only be able to catch so many.

Now, (the live streaming) provides a unique

opportunity for them to stay engaged and be

able to watch every lap. It’s meant a lot to

members of my family to keep up with my

racing, and I know it’s the same for others.”

Early registrations in all four of Thunder

Road’s weekly divisions are outpacing numbers

from this time a year ago. The Maplewood/

Irving Oil Late Models, who will battle it out

to determine the 2021 “King of the Road”, are

expected to see noticeable growth in their

ranks.

Nearly all of last year’s weekly competitors

have already signed up to return, including

two-time defending champion Corliss,

Demers, Tyler Cahoon, Marcel J. Gravel, and

Matt White. They’re joined by incoming Late

Model rookies Brandon Lanphear and Cooper

Bouchard, both of whom were impressive in

the Flying Tiger ranks. Andy Hill is joining

the Thunder Road Late Models after winning

Rookie of the Year at New Hampshire’s White

Mountain Motorsports Park, while Mike

Foster and Trevor Lyman are returning for at

least partial schedules.

When the Late Model championship battle

begins, many drivers will also be chasing the

New England Late Model Challenge Cup.

Thunder Road is one of nine tracks participating

in the program, which counts the 10 best

results of registered drivers. Corliss, Gravel,

Cahoon, Brendan Moodie, and Kyle Pembroke

are among those aiming for an additional

$3,000 Challenge Cup top prize on top of the

$7,500 for winning the Thunder Road title.

In the meantime, the Community Bank

N.A. 150 will feature the ACT Late Model

Tour plus many weekly competitors who want

an early tune-up before their first point-counting

event. Therrien, Demers, Bouchard, and

Brooks Clark have already filed their entries.

They’ll join talented touring stars such as

defending ACT champion Jimmy Hebert,

multi-time Pro All Stars Series champions

Ben Rowe and D.J. Shaw, and ACT Rookie of

the Year Derek Gluchacki. This will be the

first race for most of them on the new Hoosier

tire for the Late Models.

Meanwhile, the Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel

Flying Tigers are approaching 50 registered

drivers between Thunder Road and White

Mountain. Last year kicked off the 2020s with

an average of 30 Flying Tigers a week at

Thunder Road putting on outstanding racing.

Signs are that the streak of four straight years

with rising car counts could reach year number

five.

Apart from those who have moved up to the

Late Models, most of the 2020 Flying Tiger

class is already registered for another goround.

Jason Woodard, Jaden Perry, Cameron

Ouellette, Bryan P. Wall, and Stephen Martin

are all amped-up for another year of door-todoor

action. The incoming class includes

Street Stock/Road Warrior graduates Brandon

Gray, Justin Prescott, Tanner Woodard, and

J.T. Blanchard.

Despite the moves up the ladder system, the

RK Miles Street Stock and Burnett Scrap

Metals Road Warrior rosters are still looking

strong. The Street Stocks are just shy of 30

registered names with more expected by

Opening Day. The ranks are buoyed by the

presence of at least nine first-year Street Stock

drivers. Many new racers have also signed up

for the Road Warriors, joining veterans such

as Sean McCarthy, Fred Fleury, Nate Brien,

and Dan Garrett Jr.

This surging interest has carried over to the

sponsorship ranks with multiple new event

partners now on board. Essex Equipment is

the latest associate with an agreement to present

the 42nd Vermont Governor’s Cup on

Thursday, July 15. Efficiency Vermont is

helping crown the Thunder Road championship

at a special Friday night show on

ASE CERTIFIED • AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE EXCELLENCE • ASE CERTIFIED

Choose a shop that employees ASEcertified

auto technicians to ensure your

vehicle maintenance and repair dollars are

wisely spent.

Studies from the National Institute for

Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) show

vehicles that receive regular maintenance and

service retain more of their value, get better

gasoline mileage, and pollute less than cars

that are neglected. But today’s computer-loaded systems leave

many former do-it-yourselfers hesitant to do much weekend

tinkering. What’s a conscientious vehicle owner to do?

HOW CONSUMERS BENEFIT FROM ASE

CERTIFICATION

Finding a competent auto repair professional should not be

difficult … and with that guiding principle, the nonprofit, independent

ASE was founded in 1972.

The mission was clear: Develop a mechanism by which

working auto technicians could prove their competence to

themselves, their employers, and to consumers.

The solution: A series of national certification exams covering

all major automotive repair and service specialties.

The result: An elite group of automotive service professionals

at work in repair establishments throughout the nation.

WHY USE ASE-CERTIFIED AUTO

TECHNICIANS?

Consumers benefit from ASE’s certification program

because it takes much of the guesswork out of finding a competent

technician.

Perhaps years ago, any shade-tree mechanic would do; after

all, cars were simpler, less complex. But with today’s high-tech

vehicles — family sedans, sports coupes, rugged SUVs, and

powerful pickups — the margin for error is small because

mistakes are more costly. It makes good financial sense, then,

to protect your sizeable automotive investment through regular

maintenance and service performed by ASE-certified professionals.

Because the program is voluntary, technicians who have

taken the time and expense to earn ASE certification can be

counted on to have a strong sense of pride in accomplishment

and professionalism — which should be good news for consumers.

Moreover, prior to taking ASE exams, many technicians

attend training classes or study on their own in order to

brush up on their knowledge. The time they spend sharpening

their skills translates directly to the work they perform on

vehicles every day on the job.

HOW DOES ASE CERTIFICATION WORK?

More than 100,000 candidates sit for ASE exams each

year. These exams — the only independent national certification

tests available to automotive professionals — are

developed and regularly updated by representatives from

the service and repair industry, vocational educators, working

technicians, and ASE’s own in-house technical specialists.

The exams stress real-world diagnostic and repair

problems, not theory.

Mechanics who pass at least one exam and fulfill the handson

work experience requirement earn the title of “ASE-

Certified Automobile Technician,” while those who pass all

eight automotive exams earn “Master Auto Technician” status.

There are also tests for parts specialists, collision repair technicians,

automotive service consultants, and segments of the

repair industry. however, ASE certification is not a designation

for life; technicians must recertify every five years in order to

demonstrate a commitment to continuing education and staying

abreast of constantly changing technologies.

HOW TO FIND AN ASE PROFESSIONAL

ASE technicians can be found at every type of repair facility:

new car dealerships, independent garages, service stations,

franchised outlets, collision shops, tire dealers, parts stores and

more. There are more than 360,000 ASE-certified professionals

at work nationally. Repair facilities employing ASE professionals

usually display the distinctive blue and white ASE sign

on the premises and post their technicians’ credentials in their

customer service areas.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT REPAIR SHOP:

A CHECKLIST

ASE certifies individual technicians — not repair establishments.

But it stands to reason that shop owners who encourage

their technicians to become ASE certified will be just as proactively

involved in the other aspects of their businesses as

well.

HERE ARE SOME TIPS ON FINDING A GOOD

REPAIR ESTABLISHMENT:

Start shopping for a repair facility before you need

one.

■ Ask your friends and associates for their recommendations;

consult local consumer groups.

■ Arrange for alternate transportation in advance so you

will not feel forced to choose a shop based solely on

location.

■ Look for a neat, well-organized facility, with vehicles

in the parking lot equal in value to your own and modern

equipment in the service bays.

■ Look for a courteous staff, with a service consultant

willing to answer all of your questions.

■ Look for policies regarding estimated repair costs,

diagnostic fees, guarantees, acceptable methods of payment,

etc.

■ Ask if the repair facility specializes in or regularly

performs your type of needed repair work.

■ Look for signs of professionalism in the customer service

area such as civic, community, or customer service

awards.

■ Look for evidence of qualified technicians: trade

school diplomas, certificates of advanced courses, and

ASE certification.

■ Look for the ASE sign.

■ Facilities with a high percentage of ASE-certified professionals

may also be members of the elite Blue Seal of

Excellence Recognition Program. Ask the shop if it is a

member of the program.

In 2016, The Vermont Futures Project set

a target for 5,000 new and retrofitted housing

units per year to meet the critical need for

homes across Vermont. This was a need five

years ago, and as we strive to recover from

the pandemic-caused economic downturn, the

health of Vermont’s housing market is under

more stress than ever.

Governor Scott recognizes this need and

recently proposed using substantial federal

funding to create 1,135 “missing middle”

housing units, renovate 681 vacant affordable

rental units, build 2,434 mixed income units,

add 600 affordable multi-family housing

units, weatherize an additional 900 units, and

improve drinking and wastewater systems.

“The Governor’s proposal underscores the

need for more housing in Vermont, with an

emphasis on the missing middle. The Vermont

Futures Project supports this once-ina-lifetime

opportunity to address this intractable,

long-term problem, and believes this

will help retain and attract more Vermonters

to our workforce and communities,” said Lori

Smith, Executive Director of The Vermont

Futures Project.

The moment is now to create a long-term,

comprehensive plan to address our housing

crisis. Attractive, affordable, and efficient

homes will revitalize Vermont communities,

provide stable housing, and enable us to attract

and retain the people and businesses we

need for a thriving economy. The Vermont

Futures Project worked for several months to

collate immediate actions that would improve

the health of our housing. You can read the
