Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

The Various Advantages To Shopping Locally

Residents of a given town or city are often

encouraged to support local businesses

b looking to these firms to fill their needs

mall businesses are not ust integral parts

of communities emploing millions across

the countr the also are operations that

fund the er communities the serice

fforts to promote shopping local

appear to be working ccording to the

ommonwealth inancial roup oer the

last several years there has been a shift in

consumer purchasing behaior marked b

a preference among consumers to support

locally owned shops and stores over bigbox

retailers and een online shopping

he following are some ke reasons wh

shopping locall not onl benefits small business

owners but also the communities the

call home and the customers the sere

ore mone stas in the communit

ccording to the merican ndependent

communit

ob creation he usiness lliance for

Local Liing conomies sas local businesses

create the maorit of economic growth

he emplo millions of mericans b

creating roughly two-thirds of private sector

obs Local business owners also tend to

hire people who represent the demographics

of the communities where the business

is located which ma include historicall

undersered populations

Diersit of products Local stores tend

to diversify their products and services to

meet the needs of the local communities

whereas chain stores often stock their

sheles based on national demands

ersonalied serice small business

owner ma be more inclined to go to great

lengths to make customers happ because

the long-term success of the business

depends on customers becoming repeat

customers

ersonal connection nowing the

people behind a business facilitates a

connection not easily achieved with other

companies ustomers ma celebrate when

a favorite business succeeds and look

to spread the word about that business

because they feel like they played a positive

Nominations Open for 2021 Con Hogan

Community Leadership Award

• • •

Nominations are now being accepted for

the $15,000 Con Hogan Award for Creative,

Entrepreneurial, Community Leadership.

Launched in 2015, the annual award is a

tribute to Con Hogan’s life’s work and commitment

to public service. The goal of the

award is to encourage and reward leaders who

share Con’s vision of a better Vermont—one

that places the highest value on the public

good—who seize the responsibility for making

that vision real, and who mentor emerging

leaders. The cash award may be spent however

the selected individual chooses.

Vermont, the nation, and the world have

been facing an unprecedented public health

emergency for more than a year. This crisis

has required Con’s brand of results-focused

leadership that relies on facts and rigorous

analysis to guide decisions. This kind of

leadership does not arise suddenly out of nowhere,

but is the result of ongoing practice,

development, and enduring commitment to

the public good. Acknowledging the importance

of this type of leadership and breaking

with past practice, the 2020 award was given

to the entire Vermont Department of Health

staff for their untiring efforts to keep people

safe during the pandemic.

This year’s winner will be an individual

selected by the Award Committee, which

represents a broad range of interests and experience,

including health care and human

services, the arts, government service, early

care and education, and food systems. The individual

will have demonstrated the following

characteristics: focus on results, using data

and measurement to mobilize action, working

with people across diverse perspectives, taking

risks in pursuit of the vision, and persisting

through setbacks.

The awardee must be a Vermont resident

who has not yet received the award.

Previous individuals who have received the

award are Jan Demers (2019), James Baker

(2018), Holly Morehouse (2017), Michael

Monte (2016), and Ellen Kahler (2015).

Nominations will be accepted through the

Vermont Community Foundation’s website

until 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 24, 2021.

The award will be presented at a public event,

either virtual or in Montpelier, at 4:30 p.m. on

October 6. For more information or to submit

a nomination, visit vermontcf.org/ConHoganAward.

The Vermont Community Foundation inspires

giving and brings people and resources

together to make a difference in Vermont. A

family of hundreds of funds and foundations,

we provide the advice, investment vehicles,

and bac-office expertise that mae it easy

for the people who care about ermont to find

and fund the causes they love.

The heart of the Community Foundation’s

work is closing the opportunity gap—the divide

that leaves too many Vermonters struggling

to get ahead, no matter how hard they

work. We are aligning our time, energy, and

discretionary resources on efforts that provide

access to early care and learning, pathways to

college and career training, support for youth

and families, and community and economic

vitality. We envision Vermont at its best—

where everyone has the opportunity to build

a bright, secure future.

our financial support allos to

• Provide more people in our community access

to nutritious fresh food.

• Reduce the amount of nutritious food that is

grown, but not eaten.

• Educate all in the community about the local

food system and how to support it.

22 arl eason ighlights

Our 2021 is off to a busy start and nutritious

food is the star of the show. March and April

are usually our slowest time of year where we

catch up on all of the non hands-on work at

CHCV. But that has not been the story of this

year.

Right now, our deliveries are at high harvest

season levels and our volunteer delivery

drivers are delivering full loads of food around

Central Vermont each Tuesday. At this rate we

will out do 2020!

We want to use this chance to also share the

highlights of this year at CHCV so far. Here

is a uic snapshot of the things weve been

up to lately:

Weve continued weely picups all winter

and spring from our partners at Red Hen Baking,

The Roots Farm Market and Bear Roots

arm, and Willing Hands Weve also added

a weekly pick-up from Farmers To You earlier

this year. These weekly pick-ups allow us

to add eggs, animal and vegetarian proteins,

dairy, bread, and other nutritious foods to our

weekly deliveries.

• Volunteers have continued weekly deliveries

to area food shelves, senior and community

meal sites, early education centers, and more.

We are still sending out delicious apples, beets

and carrots which so many of you helped

glean last late Fall.

• We gleaned organic spinach from two local

greenhouses in April – earlier than usual and

most welcome as fresh greens are a favorite

at our recipient sites this time of year in particular.

Weve expanded our staff in order to meet

CHCV Executive Director, Allison Levin, and

CHCV Board President, Scott Hess, spreading

the word about CHCV at the Capitol City Farmers

Market on May 1st.

the communitys demand for fresh, local

food. Caitlin “Cait” Howansky joined CHCV

as our Program Administrator at the end of

April. Cait lives in Worcester, loves kimchi,

her vegetable garden, and she says she probably

grows too many sunflowers for her own

good. We have found her to be organized, insightful,

funny, and we already feel like she

has been on the team for years.

Weve been collaborating with the ermont

Gleaning Collective and national Association

of Gleaning Organizations on best practices

and ways in which we can increase our positive

impact on the community.

• We are scheduling meetings with our recipient

and farm partners to check in with them

before the busy season begins so we can better

serve all our partners in the community.

• Our volunteers are currently helping hang

posters across Central Vermont to let more

people know how to get involved. Let us

know if you are interested in helping!

• We are currently reaching out to area businesses

about ways in which they can sponsor

our gleaning work. Interested in becoming a

sponsor? Have an idea for an area business

who would? We would love to hear from you!

H attended the first summer apitol

City Farmers Market this past Saturday to remind

all about gleaning. Thanks to all of you

who stopped by nd while we werent there

explicitly to recover food, our fabulous farm

partner vendors donated bundles of first uality

crops at the end of the market to feed our

neighbors.

Green Mountain Conservation Camp ‘Work-cation’ Weekends

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is looking for

volunteers to join them for fun-filled weekends to get the

camps ready for the 2021 season. This year, the GMCC

Kehoe ‘workcation’ weekend will be May 15-16 and the

GMCC Buck Lake workcation weekend will be May 22-23.

“We look forward to workcation weekend all winter long,”

said Education Manager Ali Thomas. “With the help of local

volunteers, we spruce up both camps in preparation for the

summer and enjoy being outdoors knowing it’s for a good

cause -- environmental education for kids.”

Volunteers can participate for as long as they are able to;

one hour, one day, or both days. They are welcome to stay

overnight in onsite cabins or they can bring their own tents.

Lunch and dinner will be provided.

The Buck Lake camp is located in Woodbury and the

Kehoe camp is on Lake Bomoseen in Castleton. This is an

excellent community service opportunity for boy scout and

girl scout groups, as well has high school and college clubs.

The Conservation Camps are looking for help with general

repairs, construction, landscaping, painting, plumbing, cooking,

firewood, electrical work, and gardening. Participants are

encouraged to bring their own tools, but the camps will have

some available.

Staff and volunteers will follow all COVID guidelines,

including wearing masks, 6-foot distancing and hand washing.

In addition, nonresident volunteers must follow Vermont

Health Department COVID guidelines at this link: https://

www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/travel-quarantine/visitorsvermont

For more information and to register as a volunteer for one

of these weekends, please email Hannah.Phelps@vermont.

Summer Camps!

Vermont Fish & Wildlife is asking for volunteers to help at its conservation

camp work weekends -- May 15-16 at the Bomoseen camp

and May 22-23 at the Buck Lake camp. VTF&W photos by Alison

Thomas.

Vermont’s conservation camp program is unique because it

is sponsored and directed by the Fish and Wildlife Department

professionals who conserve Vermont’s fish and wildlife species.

Working biologists, foresters, wardens, and conservation

educators teach young people about their role with

Vermont’s forests, wetlands, wildlife, and fish through interactive

activities.

The Green Mountain Conservation Camp program’s greatest

strength is connecting young people to the outdoors. The

camp program is sponsored in part through a grant from the

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration

Program.

Jeudevine

Memorial Library

Hardwick

A Pandemic-Related Challenge for

the Jeudevine

The Jeudevine Expansion Project is facing a new challenge

after opening bids for the construction work. While it was

well known that construction costs have gone up in the pandemic-related

building boom, the full amount of the increase

couldn’t have been predicted. The library had worked hard to

raise $1.54 million toward construction costs (separate from

fees for engineering, design, and permits), but the construction

bids ranged from $2.42 million to $2.59 million. The fact

that all three bids were so close to one another indicates they

are responsible bids reflecting the pandemic-induced inflation

of costs—but they are all at least $800,000 over the original

budget, which is a full 50% increase. The low bidder was

Breadloaf Construction LLC out of Middlebury.

After taking time to regroup and have numerous discussions

aimed toward bridging this gap, there is now a new plan.

The architects and the estimators at Breadloaf are focused on

reducing the budget by delaying items that can be added back

once more money is available, so as not to compromise the

quality of the overall building.

Meanwhile the trustees, the town, and the funding partners

are all at work to raise more funds. The Trustees will solicit

donations from individual donors and our funding partners are

seeking other sources. The immediate goal is to sign a contract

that allows the general contractor to begin construction.

If necessary, parts of the lower level of the new library will

remain unfinished, but the new reading rooms on the upper

level will be usable, allowing expanded space for kids, teens,

and quiet reading. .

While it is early days for release of stimulus money via the

American Rescue Plan Act, there are several possible avenues

by which the library project might be eligible for infrastructure

funding due to the pandemic-related nature of the shortage.

The trustees and the select board are in close contact over

how best to access these funds once guidance becomes available

for how they can be used. The U.S. Dept. of the Treasury

has also announced a fund for capital projects, for which

guidance will be coming at a later date. Further, the library has

applied for earmark funding via the offices of Senator Patrick

Leahy and Senator Bernie Sanders, as this funding has just

recently been announced and meets the criteria for community-based

projects. The revitalization efforts in Hardwick are

providing a model and inspiration for numerous other communities,

and this is well recognized throughout the state. The

Jeudevine Expansion is considered a key piece of this revitalization

work, together with the Yellow Barn Project and the

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.

For community members, there will be opportunities to

volunteer once the project enters a finishing phase. Also, there

is a need for granite block for landscaping (such as from old

foundations) that will be gratefully accepted as a donation.

For questions about the project or to offer assistance, call

the library at 472-5948.

New Online Tool for Job and Education Seekers

Advance Vermont has launched MyFutureVT.org, the

state’s first free online hub to provide Vermonters with the

information they need to make informed and empowered

decisions about their career and education pathways. With

30,000 fewer Vermonters working than before the pandemic,

MyFutureVT fills an urgent need to connect those seeking

work with the information, education, and support needed to

get back in the workforce.

MyFutureVT showcases Vermont’s high-pay, high-demand

jobs, the in-state education and training programs needed to

secure these jobs, and a collection of resources and direct

services that help Vermonters pursue their career and education

journey. The site is geared toward career and education

seekers, as well as the “navigators” who support them—

school and career counselors, employers, and family members.

It is designed to serve communities who have historically

faced significant barriers to accessing postsecondary

education and workforce systems.

“We want every Vermonter to know they have opportunities

to pursue their career and education goals right here in

Vermont,” said Tom Cheney, Executive Director of Advance

Vermont. “They no longer need to dig through mountains of

information to explore their options. MyFutureVT helps high

school students and mid-career workers alike consider careers

and compare education and training programs, all while

directing them to experts who can help along the way.”

Sifting through resources can be confusing, costly, and time

consuming. Research shows that job and education seekers

want accessible and clear information about their education,

training, and career options. Nine in ten Vermonters currently

or recently enrolled in post-high school education or training

report that they would have used a site that met that need.

MyFutureVT offers Vermonters an innovative, online tool to

identify, evaluate, and access career and post-high school

education and training opportunities across the state.

The completion of MyFutureVT is timely. The COVID-19

pandemic has impacted the jobs or education plans of thousands

of Vermonters. Entering or reentering the workforce

will pose a challenge, especially for those without a post-high

school credential (apprenticeship, certificate, degree etc.).

First Phase of American Rescue Plan Funding from the National

Endowment for the Arts Includes $747,400 for Vermont

The National Endowment for the Arts is recommending an

award of $747,400 to the Vermont Arts Council in the NEA’s

first distribution of funds from the merican escue lan

(ARP).

The emergency funding is designed to support the arts sector

as it recovers from the devastating impact of Covid-19. It

is part of the $135 million allocated for the Arts Endowment

in the legislation, which represents a significant commitment

to the arts and a recognition of the value of the arts and culture

sector to the nation’s economy and recovery.

“The release of these American Rescue Plan funds marks an

important step in the economic recovery of the creative sector,”

said NEA Acting Chair Ann Eilers. “The knowledge of

the Vermont Arts Council about the arts and culture landscape

in Vermont makes it an ideal steward of federal dollars. The

Arts Endowment is grateful for the continued leadership of the

Vermont Arts Council as the arts sector rebuilds in a way that

works better for all arts organizations.”

Vermont Arts Council staff will review NEA guidance in

the coming weeks to determine how best to use these funds to

address critical needs in the field

“We know how critical Vermont’s arts and cultural organizations

are to our state’s economy, and this funding will help

them move beyond the devastating effects of the Covid pandemic,”

said Sen. Patrick Leahy. “Our creative sector adds so

much to the vibrancy that makes Vermont not only a special

place to live, but a great place to visit. As Chairman of the

Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to support

the work of the NEA and the Vermont Arts Council, and I am

grateful for their many contributions.”

“The Arts Council appreciates the leadership and strong

support of Senator Leahy and our federal partners at the NEA

in a time of great need,” said Vermont Arts Council Executive

Director Karen Mittelman. “Rebuilding and strengthening

Vermont’s vibrant arts and culture sector is essential as we

chart a course forward for Vermont communities.”

Forty percent of the NEA’s $135 million in ARP funding

goes to the 62 state, jurisdictional, and regional arts organizations

for regranting through their respective funding programs.

The remaining 60 percent of the ARP money will be

awarded by the E directly to non-profit organiations to

help support jobs in the arts sector, keep the doors open at

cultural venues nationwide, and assist the field in its response

to and recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Guidelines and

application materials for a second phase of American Rescue

Plan funding from the Arts Endowment are expected to be

available in June, pending review.

The Vermont Arts Council envisions a Vermont where all

people have access to the arts and creativity in their lives, education,

and communities. Engagement with the arts transforms

individuals, connects us more deeply to each other, energizes

the economy, and sustains the vibrant cultural landscape that

makes Vermont a great place to live. Since 1965, the Council

has been the state’s primary provider of funding, advocacy,

and information for the arts in Vermont. Learn more at vermontartscouncil.org.

PET OF THE WEEK

Olive came to CVHS recently with a litter of kittens who

have all been adopted. Now Olive is looking for a home

that has a free lap and some extra time to share some love.

Her requirements are simply scratches on her neck and

behind her ears are a must. Please excuse her stare. She

can't help but make you fall in love with her gentle gaze.

Olive would like a home on the calmer library side. She is

a calm quiet young lady that is looking to rule her kingdom.

Don't let this proper young lady fool you; she has a playful

side, especially when the laser pointer comes out.

All adoptions are done by a phone

appointment only (no one is allowed

in the building). Contact an adoption

counselor to set up an appointment

Fred Godfrey

May 8, 1956 - April 29, 2021

Fred was the 8th of 10 children born to Clara (Walden) and

Arthur F. Godfrey, Jr. of West Fairlee, VT. He attended

schools in the Thetford school system.

As an adult, Fred kept mainly to himself, but could be

“quite a talker” when he felt like it. He was seen by many as

“a good guy” and especially enjoyed visiting with the little

children.

During his nearly 65 years, Fred lived in many places in

northern and central VT. His jobs were primarily buildings

and grounds maintenance. He was able to continue this type

of work part-time for the past decade at his home at

Downtown Rentals in Barre.

Fred passed peacefully at Barre Gardens Rest Home from

chronic heart failure. He is survived by his brother Frank and

four sisters (Josie, Flo, Ramona, Karen). Brothers Art and

Carl predeceased him, as did sisters Shirley and Judi. He is

also survived by 14 nieces and four nephews. Two nephews

predeceased him.

His final resting place will be in the family plot at the Post

Mills Cemetery when arrangements can be made.

Stephen M. Kunkle

Stephen M. Kunkle, formerly of Williamstown,

VT died unexpectedly at home in Las Vegas, NV.

Steve was born February 12, 1986 in Okinawa, Japan the son

of Charles R. and Ann (Smith) Kunkle. Upon his father’s

retirement from the Air Force they settled in Williamstown,

VT where he completed elementary and middle/high school,

graduating in 2004. He later moved to Spokane, WA and

while there joined the U.S. Army and was part of the 1st

Infantry Division (the Big Red 1) and served in Afghanistan

during Operation Enduring Freedom. He then moved to

South Carolina, Washington state, and finally Nevada. He

was a talented artist and musician who was very adept on the

guitar. Along with his parents he is survived by siblings Marc

(Tory) Kunkle of Franklin, TN, Caroline (Lance) Erickson of

Phoenix, AZ, Douglas (Jessica) Kunkle of Bremerton, WA

John (Meagan) Kunkle of Barre, VT, grandmother Elaine H.

Smith of West Topsham, VT, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins,

Michael Alvah Smith

South Ryegate, VT - Michael Alvah

Smith, aka Mimi, 52, died at Dartmouth

Hitchcock Medical Center on May 3,

2021, after a short illness.

He was born October 12, 1968 in

Berlin, VT the son of Alvah Smith and

Betty Spooner. Michael graduated from

Oxbow High School in 1986 and went on

to work at several jobs, including Malden

Mills, Bombardier, and most recently the

Vermont State Hospital.

Michael had a love of muscle cars, music (especially metal)

and sports. He especially loved watching NASCAR, and Jeff

Gordon was his absolute favorite. He also loved watching

Boston sports teams, and was a diehard Patriots fan. As with

everything in life, he was passionate about each of these

things, and would have a heated debate with anyone who said

anything negative.

The thing Michael was most passionate about was his family.

He loved his siblings, but it was his nieces and nephews

that he had a soft spot for. He was an integral part of their

childhoods, and this continued with his great-nieces and

great-nephews, and even children who were not blood related.

He was Uncle Mimi to so many, even before he adopted the

nickname. He would drop anything he was doing to help

them. He always had a hug and made everything fun. He had

a love of music and would share this, whether just listening to

it, or singing to and with you. He would dance, he would use

goofy voices, there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to bring a smile.

Michael was predeceased by his father, Alvah Smith, his

mother, Betty Armour (nee Spooner), and his beloved sister

whom he missed dearly, Laurie Williams (nee Smith), and

many beloved aunts (especially Barbara Smith), and uncles.

Survivors include his sister, Darlene Chicoine and her husband,

Roland of Millis, MA; sister, Beverly Ordway and

husband, Bruce of West Topsham, VT; brother, Dale Smith of

Elmore, VT; brother, Brian Smith and his special friend, Jen

Thompson of East Topsham, VT; and Jeremy Smith and partner,

Erin Finneran of East Topsham, VT; many nieces, nephews,

great-nieces and great-nephews and cousins, who will

miss him dearly.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff

at the ICU Department at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical

Center for providing wonderful care to Michael, and kindness

When Life Gives You Lymes

Debra Paul’s recounts of Chronic Lyme

as transcribed by Melissa Ruiz

Growing up I was always full of vigor. I

was a combination of the Energizer Bunny, I

just kept going and going and going and

going, and ena, Warrior rincess, my

super-strength allowing me to accomplish

any task ahead of me. With these powers

combined, nothing could stop me.

Nothing that is, except for a seemingly

insignificant insect bite.

Lyme Disease currently affects 300,000

people every year, according to the Centers

for isease ontrol and revention ust so

happen to be one among those unfortunate

figures. And I’ll be the first to tell you, if

you’re not one of these people, count your

blessings, forwards and backwards.

For those of you who may not know, Lyme

Disease is a bacterial infection caused by a

tick bite. Specifically, an Ixode tick bite, otherwise

known as the deer tick (and on the

west coast, it’s the black-legged tick. Many

people assume Lyme is an east coast disease,

and are the reason your mother may have told

you to pull your socks over your pants and up

to your knees and take other precautions like

that. Believe you me, a little short-term

embarrassment over a wardrobe choice like

that is worth twice your weight in gold to

prevent the risk of Lyme.

So what is so particularly dangerous about

these tick bites? It’s the bacteria that these

nasty little buggers transmit into you when

they chomp down. Lymedisease.org states

corkscrew-shaped bacterium called Borrellia

burgdorferi. It works its way through your

bloodstream causing all sorts of terrible

symptoms, maing it nown as The reat

mitator, as these symptoms mimic a number

of other ailments, such as chronic fatigue

syndrome, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis,

and even psychiatric illnesses like depression.

And this is the short list—the disease mimics

too many others to note.

As it turns out, a large number of people

often go undiagnosed for a long time, until

the disease has manifested itself in the worst

way. You probably have put it together that I

am one of those unfortunate people.

I could go on about the toll this terrible illness

has taken on my body, my mind, and my

soul. Each and every day is a battle that so far

I have been able to overcome, but sadly the

war is far from over.

There is a lot to cover about this illness,

and I intend to bring awareness to my valued,

dedicated readers This disease is found on

every continent in the world except for

Antarctica (at least the penguins are safe), and

everyone deserves to be informed.

Of course this is just one disease of many

in this world, but no disease is created equal.

I feel that I should share my experiences with

you and tell you all there is to know about this

wretched ailment. Who knows? If you’re in

the same boat, I may be able to help you, help

you, or someone you know that may be suffering

alongside me.

Until then, I continue to fight. I may not be

all I used to be, but I’ll be darned if I’ll let this

disease tae all of me This is ust one of the

ways I intend to fight back.

Letter to the Editor,

In an April 21 letter to The World, Dottye Ricks wrote in

defense of “an individual’s right to make their own reproductive

decisions.” She says, “Because people are people, sometimes

the unplanned happens.” And when it does, she says,

“[W]e must make hard decisions about our bodies and our

lives.” This somewhat cavalier statement about abortion

ignores – does not even consider – the other person, the other

body, the innocent unborn child. Human life begins at fertilization.

See, https://www.princeton. edu/~prolife/articles/

embryoquotes2.html. From the moment of fertilization until

death – same human life, albeit different stages of development.

Undeniably a killing of a human life occurs in every

successful abortion. Ms. Ricks makes a reasonable point

about the freedom to make decisions about our own bodies.

Why would anyone want to interfere with another person’s

personal liberty when it involves decisions about their own

body – like, say, the removal of a tooth or perhaps whether to

submit to an experimental vaccine? But as pointed out by

Robert Spitzer, our human rights have been recognized as

ordered or hierarchical. See, Six Principles of Individual

Dignity and Rights (2017) (Spitzer). In the Declaration of

Independence, the authors wrote, not by accident, of certain

inalienable rights to (1) Life, (2) Liberty and the (3) Pursuit

Sometimes Less is More

By G. E. Shuman

Early this morning, and I mean

EARLY this morning, I was lying in

bed, trying to get back to a few more

hours of sleep, but could not. This happens

to me more often than I wish it did.

Part of what often keeps me awake is not being able to get

thoughts of things I need to do, projects around the house I

need to finish, and other nagging stuff like that out of my

mind. Does this ever happen to you? I would bet that it does.

This morning, though, I woke up to thoughts about a thing

that we owned, that was in our cellar. It was a thing I once

knew I needed to fix before summer. Suddenly, I realized that

the ‘thing’ I was concerned about getting parts for, taking

apart, and fixing was no longer down there in that cellar. In an

effort to do some ‘hoeing out’ this spring we had gotten rid of

it. I would not be able to use it, but I would also not have to

work on it.

Wow! What a sudden relief it was to realize that I WOULD

never, COULD never take that old thing apart and fix it...

EVER! It was gone, and I was glad of that.

I then began thinking, (still not sleeping) of other things we

had gotten rid of recently and the time that would be saved not

having to fix, clean, store or even use some of those things. I

remembered reading a few old adages and ideas long ago. One

was: “The more things you own, the more things own you.”

Another: “The happiest man in the world is the one who just

of Happiness (sometimes referred to as property rights).

When one person’s right to liberty or personal autonomy

conflicts with another person’s right to life, the right to life

should prevail. Any law that says otherwise is illegitimate. I

recommend to Ms. Ricks and any reader who has any question

about what happens in a late-term abortion take a look at

“Eclipse of Reason” at https://youtu.be/_nff8I2FVnI. The

film is graphic so beware. Nevertheless, its important to

know the facts when we are endorsing public policy. To my

knowledge current Vermont law has zero restrictions on abortion

up to the time of birth and permits the gruesome, painful

and inhumane procedure depicted in this film. My guess is

most Vermonters would not agree that such a procedure

should be permitted without restriction, let alone included as

a “right” in our state’s constitution, enshrined in our state’s

permanent law. The public discourse on the topic of abortion

must include an acknowledgement and consideration of the

life in the womb. Would any reasonable person suggest that

we make law or public policy without considering all the

people affected, particularly innocents without a voice?

Secretary Condos Announces Completion of 2020

Vermont General Election Audit

Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos announced the

completion of the 2020 Vermont General Election Audit,

which was conducted on April 28th at the Pavilion Auditorium

located in Montpelier o significant abnormalities or

discrepancies were found between the audit results and the

fficial eturns of ote

“Yesterday’s successful audit of the 2020 Vermont General

Election has verified the accuracy, dependability and integrity

of ermonts official ovember eneral Election results,

said Condos. “While the audit is an important administrative

process required by state law, it also serves to give Vermont

voters strengthened confidence in our election results Every

voter deserves to have peace of mind in knowing that when

they cast their ballot it will be counted accurately.”

udits of eneral Election results are a nationally identified

best practice and have been required by Vermont state statute

since 2006. Every vote cast must be securely sealed by the

Town or City Clerks in tamper proof ballot bags under strict

chain of custody and retained in the vaults for 22 months following

the election.

Seven towns or cities were selected at random for the 2020

General Election Audit: Brandon, Pownal, Randolph, South

Burlington (Chittenden 7-4), Topsham, Warren and Worcester.

Six of these towns use optical scan tabulators for the tabulation

of election results, and one town (Topsham) uses hand

count procedures.

• • •

• • •

• • •

• • •

The sealed ballot bags for these towns or districts were delivered,

opened and audited using equipment that is distinctly

different, and independent of, the tabulators used in Vermont

towns The audit results were compared to the fficial eturns

of Vote (ORV) that were submitted by the Town Clerks following

their certification of the ovember eneral Election

results.

o significant abnormalities or discrepancies were found

between the audit results and ORV, verifying the accuracy and

integrity of the certified, official election results The results

of the audit will be posted on the Secretary of State’s website

once the data has been formatted.

The 2020 General Election Audit was open to the public

and livestreamed by ORCA Media. The recorded livestream

can be viewed courtesy of ORCA Media on their YouTube

channel.

“As we work to combat the conspiracy theories, misinformation

and disinformation that partisan operatives continue to

use to erode public confidence in the integrity of the election

results, audits are one critical way that election officials

can respond to these unfounded allegations,” said Condos.

“The right to vote is the very foundation of our democracy

and the truth matters ll that we can do as election officials is

respond with facts and evidence, by transparently demonstrating

the integrity and security of our elections process.”

bought a boat. The second happiest man in the world is the

one who just sold a boat.” And, yes: “Sometimes less is

more.” I remembered my dad once telling me that the more

‘things’ (equipment) on a car that you’re buying, the more

things there are to break. That sounds a bit negative, but also

a bit true.

Years ago, I wrote a column about the excess of things that

people own, of storage units full of ‘stuff’ that will no longer

fit in our homes, and about collections. In that column I also

talked about those wonderful big black trash bags, and the fact

that whatever you put into that black hole, after you tied the

top, you never, ever would see again. Your life and your space

would be freed up just in not owning the things in those bags.

You may not agree, but to me there is great relief in such

simplifying of life. By the way, about collections of ‘collectables.’

I think we need to understand that ANYTHING is

collectable. You can collect dust bunnies from under the bed

if you want to. That does not make them valuable, (unless you

happen to love dust bunnies.) Then I guess they’re valuable to

you.

Here at our house, we’re still hoeing out and simplifying.

We will have fewer things to dust, fix, and find time to use.

For us that is a good thing.

By the way, I never did go back to sleep this early morning.

I came downstairs and wrote this column.


Department of Labor Announces Series of

Work Search Virtual Town Hall Events

The Vermont Department of Labor will host a series of

virtual information sessions focusing on the work search

requirements for unemployment insurance claimants that

were reinstated on May 9, 2021.

Claimants who are filing in regular UI and do not have a

COVID qualifying reason, as well as claimants filing in PUA

who are not categorized as self-employed or independent

contractors, and who do not have a COVID qualifying reason,

will be required to begin making three work contacts each

week beginning the week of May 9 – May 15. Only legitimate

work inquires will be considered valid.

The work search requirement was waived last spring when

Governor Phil Scott’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order went

into effect. Therefore, many claimants may not be familiar

with this requirement or the changes made to account for

pandemic-related reasons for being unemployed. Each session

will focus on questions and topics claimants may have,

or want to learn about to be more prepared for their work

search efforts.

Details on upcoming events may be found below, with

additional information available at labor.vermont.gov/unemployment-insurance/work-search.

Recordings of these and

previous events are uploaded to the Department’s YouTube

Channel, and may be viewed online at https://www.youtube.

To Restore Nation’s Affordable Reproductive Health Care Program, the Public

Can Urge the Biden-Harris Administration to End the Title X Gag Rule

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

released proposed regulations to end the Title X gag rule, and

has opened a comment period to allow the public to shine a

light on the harm the gag rule has caused and emphasize why

it must be ended as soon as possible.

Since 2019, former President Trump’s gag rule has undermined

the Title X program and denied people across the

country access to affordable reproductive health care, such as

birth control and life-saving cancer screenings, through the

program.

In 2019, Trump’s gag rule forced Planned Parenthood of

Northern New England (PPNNE) to withdraw from the Title

X program. The gag rule makes it illegal for any provider in

the Title X program to refer patients for abortion and imposes

unnecessary “physical separation” restrictions on health centers

that provide abortion.

PPNNE was the only Title X provider in Vermont, and at

the time provided 11,000 Vermonters with affordable birth

control, cancer screenings, STI treatment, and more. Currently,

there are no Title X providers in Vermont.

Statement from Lucy Leriche, Vice President, Vermont

Public Affairs, PPNNE:

“Everyone deserves access to affordable reproductive

health care — from birth control to STI tests to wellness

exams — no matter who they are, where they live, or how

much money they have. The gag rule most harms those who

have always faced systemic barriers to health care, including

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? (1966)

Just a year or two after getting married, I was judging my

friends and family for their inferior relationships and giving

them unsolicited advice.

Looking back, I am flat-out embarrassed by my behavior. I

was childish and dumb.

First off, what the heck made me think I was such an expert

on successful relationships? But more importantly, what the

heck made me think I knew anything at all about another

couple’s marriage?

The side of the relationship that a couple chooses to share

in public may be very different than the way they interact with

each other in private. And the interactions that seem weird and

unkind to outsiders may just be the unique way a couple

makes their relationship work.

“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?” takes place in an unassuming

house in a New England college town. Two married

couples come back from a faculty party to try to keep the fun

going late into the night. Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) and

George (Richard Burton) are middle aged and plainly loathe

each other. Nick and Honey are in their 20s and seem to be a

perfect couple.

During the course of an eventful few hours, they share copious

amounts of hard liquor and several dirty secrets.

In 1966, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?” was notorious

for its use of profanity. 55 years later, the film still stands out

for its unvarnished honesty about marriages.

Liz Taylor is a force of nature as Martha. For two uncomfortable

hours, she becomes the living embodiment of angry

disappointment. Martha would do anything to inspire her

husband to get some ambition or grow a backbone. But all she

can think to do is needle him, berate him, and humiliate him;

and that just makes the problem worse.

The scenes where Martha flirts openly with Nick are brutally

realistic. I do not know what is going on inside a relationship

that leads a woman to flirt with other guys right in front

of her man. But it definitely happens and it’s impressive that a

mainstream American movie explores the phenomenon with

• • •

• • •

people in rural areas, and Black, Latino, and Indigenous communities.

Now people in Vermont have the opportunity to

fully restore and improve the Title X program, while undoing

the harmful gag rule.”

The proposed regulations, when finalized, will end the Title

X gag rule and make other modifications to strengthen the

program and better ensure access to equitable, affordable,

patient-centered, quality health care services for patients

under Title X.

Now through May 17, 2021, Vermonters can add their

voice by leaving a comment that urges the Biden-Harris

Administration to end the gag rule. Planned Parenthood

Federation of America will collect comments from across the

country and submit them to the Biden-Harris Administration.

As the nation’s only federal program dedicated to providing

affordable birth control and other reproductive health care to

people with low incomes, Title X is a critical piece of our

social safety net that can, and should, help ensure equitable

access to essential health care.

Access to sexual and reproductive health care is inextricably

tied to health and safety during the pandemic. After the

close of the comment period, the Biden-Harris administration

must move to swiftly end the gag rule and ensure the Title X

program is able to meet people’s needs. This would be urgent

in any environment, but it is all the more urgent as we continue

with the COVID-19 pandemic.

such maturity. Richard Burton is surprisingly convincing as a

loser nerd. George has no defense against Martha’s barrage of

insults; he knows darn well that he’s a failure and a coward.

All he has is his devious mind and he uses it to hurt everyone

he comes across.

The MVP of the film is young Sandy Dennis, who plays

Honey. First off, she plays a character who gets extremely

drunk as the night goes on and Dennis looks genuinely plastered.

I love how Honey naturally takes George’s side in every

argument because she notices that Martha is flirting with her

husband.

Sandy Dennis also shows us that angry marriages don’t

begin angry. They begin with little seeds of resentment. Honey

quietly resents the way Nick dismisses her intelligence. And

she is getting increasingly frustrated with the way Nick tells

her to calm down every time she wants to let loose and have a

fun time.

“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf” is a triumph of American

cinema. It’s scintillating, insightful, and brutally honest at

every turn.

The ending is understated and perfect. The film argues that

these four adults who just spent the night insulting each other

and betraying each other aren’t bad couples. They’re just

couples. Like us.

given up trying to undermine you. Continue to stay cool

-- someone in authority knows what’s happening.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Spring brings a positive

aspect for relationships. Paired Twins grow closer, while

the single set finds new romance -- perhaps with a Leo

or Libra.

CANCER ( June 21 to July 22) Wavering aspects this

week mean weighing your words carefully to avoid misunderstandings.

LEO ( July 23 to August 22) You could soon be on a new

career path in pursuit of those long-standing goals, but

don’t cut any current ties until you’re sure you’re ready

to make the change.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A former colleague

wants to re-establish an old professional connection.

It would be wise to make the contact, at least until you

know what he or she is planning.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A relationship that

survived some rocky moments could be facing a new

challenge. Deal with the problem openly, honestly and

without delay. Good luck.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A recent and

much-appreciated change in the workplace inspires you

to make some changes in your personal life as well. Start

with a plan to travel more.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A friend

needs your kind and caring advice, but you need to know

what he or she is hiding from you before you agree to get

involved.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your circle of

friends continues to widen. Expect to hear from someone

in your past who hopes to re-establish your once-close

relationship.

AQUARIUS ( January 20 to February 18) Your aspects favor

the arts. Indulge in whatever artistic expression you

enjoy most. A workplace situation will, I’m pleased to say,

continue to improve.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Warning! Your tendency

to let things slide until the last minute could have

a negative effect on a relationship that you hope can develop

into something meaningful.

BORN THIS WEEK: You are both emotional and sensible.

You enjoy being with people. Good career choices

include teaching, performing and the clergy.

By Dan Groberg, Executive Director - Montpelier Alive

Montpelier Alive had the chance to connect with Michael

Drake, owner of the new restaurant The Social, now open

at The Inn at Montpelier, 147 Main Street. We can’t wait to

check it out!

Tell us about yourself and the restaurant:

Both my wife and I grew up working hospitality, and after

time in healthcare here we are again. We own Zachary’s Pizza

in Waterbury as well. The Social is really meant to be a place

to gather for an entire group - family or friends. Obviously

during COVID, that means with proper distancing and precautions,

but the goal is that between our atmosphere, our

veranda, and a menu that caters as much to those looking for

a sumptuous meal as those looking to eat healthy, we help

create those special moments. Today, if a family of four walks

into a restaurant, one of them is going to be on a restricted

diet, and having dishes that work for them - say, a Veggie

Buddha Bowl - as much as their friend who orders one of our

dry-aged steaks with Whipped Red potatoes, is key.

We are currently reservation only with walk-ins allowed when

we have capacity. We are open Wednesday-Sunday for

Breakfast (7am to 11am), Lunch (11am to 2pm), Afternoon

Tea (2pm to 5pm), and Dinner (5pm to 10pm). We will explore

take-out later in the summer. Go online at www.TheSocialVT.

com to see menus and make a reservation, or call 223-0722.

It’s our first time coming in. What do we need to order?

For breakfast: dutch babies.

or lunch any of our at-pressed ocaccia sandwiches. Our

Italian, Caprese, Turkey Bacon, and Meatball are some of my

favorites.

For Dinner: our dry-aged NY strip with our Whipped Potatoes

and our Brussels sprouts. Don’t forget dessert: try a slice of

our Strawberry & Cream Bombe, a classic cake re-imagined.

How about beverages?

We have a curated list of about 20 wines that pair well with

our menus, a lot of local beer offerings, and of course the

usual domestic beers. More coming soon with our craft cock-

tails once we receive that licensure, we are excited about

some of the riffs we can do on classics like old-fashioneds.

Tell us about your team.

In terms of team: we have focused on hiring experienced

team members in both front and back of house. My experience

is when you hire really great people and give them the

room to make decisions and feel like a real part of a team,

you build a wonderful culture. I already gush to others about

how great the folks that work at The Social are.

How have you found the Montpelier community?

We have lived in Montpelier since early 2020 -- pre-COVID --

so having the opportunity to purchase the Inn and launch The

Social was tremendous. We had decided to live in Montpelier

before any of that. Its very difficult to find a place like Montpelier]

that blends modern with a historical and welcoming

community. Hubbard Park is a crown jewel. Almost anybody I

talk to is friendly and helpful in some sort of way.

From a Cinderella story

(“Ever After,” with Drew

Barrymore as cute as a

button) to ruthless,

empire-building strategy

that plays out over years

(“Game of Thrones,” anyone?),

people just love royalty. However, there’s one

family that seems to captivate Western attention again

and again: the throne keepers of Merry Old England.

In any grocery store aisle you’ll see magazines filled with

stories of William and Kate, Harry and Meghan, and a

solitary Queen Elizabeth mourning the recent loss of

husband Prince Phillip. Some 750 million people tuned

in to watch Lady Diana wed Prince Charles. And that was

1981! Here is a royal flush of films to satiate your need for

nobility.

“Elizabeth” -- The most fascinating of the English queens,

Elizabeth I (Cate Blanchette), rises to the throne upon

the death of her half sister Mary. The prevailing advice is

for Elizabeth to marry in order to solidify her claim of the

crown. She instead carries on an affair with an English

lord ( Joseph Fiennes). But her court is awash in conspiracy

and intrigue, so with the help of her ruthless

adviser Frances Walsingham (Geoffrey Rush), Elizabeth

establishes her place as the “Virgin Queen,” who needs

no man.

“Mary, Queen of Scots” -- A liberal dose of history and

two fantastically intriguing characters converge in this

film that chronicles two strong women’s struggle to find

respect in 16th-century England and Scotland. Margot

Robbie is Queen Elizabeth I, unable to conceive and so

with a tenuous command of the English crown. Saoirse

Ronan is Mary, the Catholic queen returned from France

to take her place on the Scottish throne.

“Victoria & Abdul” -- Dame Judy Dench dons the crown

as Queen Victoria. Ali Fazal plays Abdul Karim, a Muslim

clerk from India dispatched to the court of Victoria to

present her an honor: a gold coin printed with her likeness.

Abdul is a welcome change from the suffocating

pleasing of the courtiers, and Victoria adopts him as a

friend, a friendship not without adversity.

“The King’s Speech” -- Colin Firth (himself a bit of

dreamy English star royalty) takes the central role as

Prince Albert, future king of England, George VI. He suffers

from a debilitating stutter for which he employs an

Australian speech therapist (Geoffrey Rush). The film --

a Best Picture Oscar winner -- follows their long relationship,

from the days before his older brother abdicates the

throne through the preparation to deliver his most monumental

of speeches: Britain’s declaration of war on Nazi

Germany.

A Matter of Trust

SENIOR LIVING SPRING/SUMMER 2021 | THE WORLD

Recommended men’s health screenings

Men need to be proactive in regard to

monitoring their overall health. This includes

seeing their doctors for regular wellness visits

and keeping up with recommended screenings

to catch and/or prevent illnesses. While men and

women can experience the same conditions,

health experts recommend specific tests and

screenings for men in various age groups.

Johns Hopkins Medicine advises that men are at risk for

certain conditions, including several types of cancer, such

as prostate, colon and lung cancers. However, Harvard

Medical School states men are less likely than women to

get routine physical exams and screenings. An American

Academy of Family Physicians survey found that 55 percent

of men had not seen their doctors for a physical exam

in the previous year, even though 40 percent had a least one

chronic condition.

While many screenings are recommended starting at

age 40 or 50, men should discuss family histories and risk

factors to determine if testing should begin earlier. The following

are important health screenings to consider.

rostate-specific antigen test is a blood test that

measures how much prostate-specific antigen is in the

blood. Measuring PSA has been a standard for prostate

cancer screening for 30 years. General guidelines indicate

PSA screening begin at age 55. However, having at least

one first-degree relative with prostate cancer could necessitate

earlier testing.

olorectal cancer screening olorectal cancer screening

generally occurs between ages 50 and 75. Tests include

fecal occult blood tests, stool DNA tests, colonoscopy, and

contrast barium enemas. Doctors will determine which tests

are applicable and how often to conduct them.

iabetes Men who have a M over are overweight

and should consider a diabetes screening n addition, blood

pressure above 130/80 mm Hg or other diabetes risk factors

could require a blood test to check for elevated glucose

levels.

May is Older Americans Month, a time each year to celebrate

older adults and the network of organizations who work

with them. This year’s theme, “Communities of Strength,” is

particularly relevant as ermont recovers from the -

pandemic which impacted older ermonters so significantly

Most hospitaliations and deaths from - over the

last year were among those age 65 and over. Additionally,

many older adults faced extreme social isolation, unable to

connect in person with family, friends, or services in the community.

As of May 3rd, approximately 90% or 113,000 older Vermonters

age 65+ have now received at least one dose of a

- vaccine The ging ervices etwor, including

organizations such as Home Health Agencies, Area Agencies

on Aging and SASH have worked hard to ensure all older

Vermonters have access to the vaccine, helping them with

everything from signing up to transportation. At the same

one-time screening for men who have smoked between the

ages of 65 and 75.

Hepatitis and Men are at increased ris for infection

if they have had unprotected sex with multiple partners,

received blood transfusions or transplanted organs before

une , are healthcare worers who have been stuc by

needles, or travel to regions with high rates of the hepatitis

virus

ung cancer screening Men should undergo a lung cancer

screening through low-dose computed tomography if they

are over age 55, have a 30-pack-per-year smoking history

and currently smoke or quit within the past 15 years.

Testicular cancer screening Testicular cancer is one of

the most common cancers among young men, says Johns

Hopkins Medicine. Early screening can include self-checks.

Routinely checking the testicles for any lumps or unusual

features while showering can help detect testicular cancer.

Doctors may order a painless ultrasound if something is

discovered.

Health screenings are an important component of men’s

health care. Now is the time to have a discussion with the

doctor about which screenings are necessary.

May is Older Americans Month

time, places like Senior Centers and Adult Day Centers are

beginning to reopen for groups, once again offering older

Vermonters safe and healthy spaces for gathering to enjoy social

connections and wellness activities. And family can now

visit loved ones more easily at long-term care facilities, like

nursing homes, assisted living residences, and residential care

homes.

“We are extremely appreciative of the countless organizations

and individuals who have worked tirelessly to assist

older ermonters through this extraordinarily difficult time,

stated Monica White, nterim ommissioner of the epartment

of isabilities, ging and ndependent iving The

incredible efforts made to protect older Vermonters from CO-

- and now to support their health and well-being as we

emerge from this pandemic, are a testament to Vermonters’

willingness to come together when it counts. We should all be

proud that Vermont truly is a ‘community of strength.’”

STEADI:

Fall Prevention Basics

The Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention says falls are common and costly,

especially among Americans age 65 and older.

The s TE initiative or topping Elderly ccidents,

eaths and nuries initiative shares for things you or

a loved one can do to prevent falls.

TALK OPENLY HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS

Falling in your home isn’t something you should keep to

yourself. There is nothing you should be embarrassed about

if an accident happens The s TE initiative says to

tell a provider right away if you fall, worry about falling or

feel unsteady.

Your doctor may review all the medicines you take as

overtime some medicines can change and create different

effects in your body.

EXERCISE DAILY

Exercising is a great way to help prevent yourself from

falling over time. Keeping your body healthy and moving

decreases the chances of falling as you continue to get older.

Look into exercises that will improve your balance and make

your legs stronger. Stretching daily is another way to do

minimal exercise that will benefit you in the long run

Check Eyes and Feet

Getting your eyes checked at least one year is important

to prevent damage or catch damage such as cataracts or

glaucoma in its early stages The s TE initiative

says along with getting your eyes fixed, you should also have

your feet checked once a year, discuss proper footwear and

ask whether seeing a foot specialist is advised.

MAKE YOUR HOME SAFER

Making your home safer for yourself is probably the most

important way you can prevent falls. Remove items that may

trip you over such as shoes, clothes, cords or any other items

that may lie on the floor

Use double-sided tape to stick small rugs and carpets to the

ground.

Lastly, adding handrails on all staircases and in your

restroom next in your shower and next to the toilet are good

prevention methods that may save your body and life in the

future.

Vermont’s demographics continue to shift, with older Vermonters

representing the fastest growing segment of the population,

so it is important that communities across the state

work to include older Vermonters, with such diverse lived

experiences, in the full life of community now and into the

future.

AARP Vermont Encourages Residents

to Participate in Emergency

Broadband Benefit Program

AARP Vermont encouraged residents who are without

access to high-speed internet, or struggling to afford it, to look

into the recently launched Emergency Broadband Benefit

(EBB) program.

The EBB is a $3.2 billion Federal Communications

Commission (FCC) program to help Americans access the

affordable, high-speed internet they need during the COVID-

19 pandemic.

“The pandemic has shown our reliance on high-speed internet,”

said Greg Marchildon, AARP Vermont state director.

“But too many Vermonters are being left behind. Patients

navigating telehealth, students learning remotely, and loved

ones staying connected with family members by video chat

are only a few of the critical tasks that require a high-speed

connection.”

Under this short-term program, Vermont residents may be

eligible for a discount on their high-speed internet service of

up to:

• $50/month discount for high-speed internet services.

• $75/month discount for high-speed internet services for

households on Tribal lands.

• A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop

computer or tablet purchased through a participating provider

This past year, many Vermonters experienced financial

setbacks and have struggled to get by, which could qualify

them for the program. Residents may be eligible for the EBB

if they:

• Qualify for the Lifeline program, as well as those who participate

in certain federal assistance programs, such as

Medicaid, SNAP, and SSI benefits.

• Experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29,

2020, and the household had a total income in 2020 below

$99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers.

• Meet the criteria for a participating internet provider’s existing

low-income or COVID-19 program.

Eligible households will enroll through participating broadband

providers.

“Helping older adults get and stay connected to high-speed

internet is a key area of focus for AARP,” said Marchildon.

“AARP fought hard for the EBB Program at the federal level

and here in Vermont. We are currently lobbying in the

Vermont Legislature to establish longer term affordability

measures for lower income Vermonters.”

For more information about EBB, visit aarp.org/EBB, text

Central Vermont Council on Aging Announces New Leadership

Central Vermont Council on Aging (CVCOA) announces

the appointment of its new executive director, Douglas

Bouchard of Glover, Vermont. The search for CVCOA’s new

leader comes after a several-month process that included

input from staff, board, and external stakeholders to find the

talent needed to build CVCOA to the best-in-class agency it

aspires to be.

“Mr. Bouchard comes to us rich with experience in capacity

building, a most important skill for the future of CVCOA”

said Board Co-Chair Emily McKenna. “We are well aware

that CVCOA must be readied for a steadily increasing number

of older Vermonters who will be seeking our services.

Planning for that future today will poise our agency to fully

meet those needs. Doug is the right person to take us there.”

How exercise can help you live longer

There are many reasons to get in shape.

Weight loss is a prime motivator, as is

reversing a negative health effect, such

as high cholesterol or increased diabetes

risk. Routine exercise also can improve life

expectancy.

WebMD says exercise keeps the body and brain healthy.

That’s why exercise should be an important component of

daily life no matter one’s age.

Research published in the journal Immune Aging found

that how people age is 75 percent lifestyle and only 25

percent genetics, which underscores the importance of the

lifestyle choices people make.

CARDIORESPIRATORY FITNESS

Many health experts say that cardiorespiratory fitness

may be just as valuable a metric to determine overall health

as blood pressure and lipid levels. People with a high

aerobic capacity can deliver oxygen to tissues and cells

efficiently to fuel exercise, according to data published in

2014 in the journal Aging & Disease. In a study involving

11,335 women, researchers compared V02 max, also

known as aerobic capacity, in women with mortality data.

Women who were fit from a cardiovascular perspective

had a lower death rate from all causes, irrespective of the

women’s weight.

MANAGE STRESS AND MOOD

Exercise has direct stress-busting benefits that can

promote longevity. The Mayo Clinic says physical activity

can increase the production of endorphins, which are the

body’s feel-good neurotransmitters. In addition, exercise

can imitate the effects of stress, helping the body adjust its

flight or fight response accordingly, and help them cope

with mildly stressful situations. While engaged in exercise,

people may forget about their problems as they are focused

on the activity at hand.

on Administration, Policy and Planning from Rutgers

recently working as an independent consultant after an awardwinning

tenure at Northeast Kingdom Human Services, a $40

million agency where he successfully oversaw several entrepreneurial

initiatives and brought the agency to its strongest

fiscal standing in its history while expanding services. Prior to

his time there, Mr. Bouchard utilized his organizational acumen

at several other agencies from Kentucky to Nova Scotia,

providing services in housing, homelessness, prenatal programs,

programs for special needs children, community outreach,

Brain Health

MENTAL HEALTH IS

IMPORTANT

Although you may have

good mental health, you

can never be too careful as

you continue to age. Mental

health disorders such as

dementia and depression can

develop in anyone if you do

not take care of your brain.

The best way to work out

your brain is to keep your

mind active. Challenging

yourself with learning a

new skill or taking in music,

theater or another creative

activity will get your mind

moving and working.

UNHEALTHY HABITS

Your brain is effected

by everything you do. So

keep that in mind if you are

a smoker, if you do not get

much sleep at night or if you

don’t eat the right things.

A healthy brain requires

a healthy life away from

harmful substances such as

cigarettes, alcohol and junk

food.

ACTIVITIES

Some other activities you

can do to keep your brain active

are puzzles, brain games

on your phone or using your

memory. Drawing a map of

your town from memory is

a good challenge for your

brain. Include major streets,

landmarks and major sights

in town.

I wish

I had

shared

my home

sooner.

IMPROVE BONE HEALTH

Strength training and physical activity can stave off

the effects of frailty and osteoporosis, which affects bone

strength. A study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine

in 2017 found that hip fractures are associated with

diminished quality of life and survival among the elderly.

One in three adults aged 50 and over dies within 12 months

of suffering a hip fracture, and older adults have a five- to

eight-times greater risk of dying within three months following

a hip fracture. Building muscle strength, balance

and bone density through exercise can reduce falls and

frailty, helping to prevent fracture-related health risks.

ADDRESSES SARCOPENIA

The health and wellness resource Healthline defines

sarcopenia as the loss of muscle mass specifically related to

aging. Doctors once considered this muscle loss inevitable,

and it can affect stamina and lead to weakness. However,

new indications suggest that exercise is the main treatment

regimen for sarcopenia, particularly resistance training.

This is designed to improve muscle strength and help

balance hormone levels by turning protein into energy for

older adults.

These are just some of the ways exercise can help older

adults live longer, healthier lives.

aging Vermonters and I have no doubt that CVCOA’s caring

board and dedicated staff is more than ready for growth and
