Governor Phil Scott

Certifies for State and Local

Fiscal Recovery Funds

Governor Phil Scott announced that Vermont has received

50% of its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) State and Local

Fiscal Recovery Fund. The State’s request, or certification for

the funds, was submitted on July 15, deemed complete on July

21, and payment was received on July 22.

The funds include 50% of the $1.049 billion of state recovery

funds, or $524 million, authorized by Congress in ARPA,

and 50% of the $58 million of local funds, or $29 million. The

State is required to distribute the local funds within 30 days to

eligible cities, towns and villages based on a formula established

in ARPA, so long as the award does not exceed 75% of

the municipality’s budget in effect on January 27, 2020.

The Administration and the Vermont League of Cities and

Towns have worked with eligible communities to ensure all

required data and information was submitted by the towns, to

ensure a speedy disbursement of the funds once received. The

local government certification process opened on June 9 and

all 276 eligible municipalities have certified with the State as

of July 21.

Vermont may also receive 50% of the $121 million in additional

funds to redistribute to municipalities due to a special

rule established in ARPA that redirects county funds in States

where counties are not considered units of general local government,

such as in Vermont. The State is awaiting a final

determination from the U.S. Treasury that these funds should

be distributed to the State for distribution to local units of

government pursuant to the special rule.

“These ARPA funds give us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

to make transformational investments to help us recover

from the pandemic stronger and build a more prosperous

Vermont,” said Governor Scott. “That’s why I’ve proposed

historic investments in housing, combatting climate change,

broadband, water/sewer infrastructure and more. This certification

also provides the opportunity for municipalities to

make their own investments based on the needs of their communities.”

The U.S. Treasury is required to distribute State and Local

Fiscal Recovery funds in two equal payments: upon initial

certification and then 12 months later. While the State will be

required to certify to receive the second payment before June

15, 2022, cities and towns will receive their second payment

without additional requirements.

Vermont DOC Announces Transitional

Housing Grants

Vermont Department of Corrections is partnering with 15

community organizations to provide reentry housing and services

to incarcerated individuals released from correctional


Effective July 1, 2021, Vermont DOC is funding 274 beds/

apartments with 15 housing providers, including two new

Community Justice Centers. Housing will be offered in every

district, including in Lamoille and Orange Counties, where

DOC housing has not existed before.

“Vermont DOC is engaged in an evolutionary process to

most effectively help people return to, and stay stably housed

in their communities,” said Commissioner James Baker. “We

are excited to work with both existing and new partners to

provide individualized services and housing that optimize

people’s dignity, stability, and personal choice. By providing

congregate and scattered-site apartments, both with intensive

supports, we’re offering a broader range of localized opportunities

for successful reintegration into the community.”

A public Request for Proposals was issued in January 2021.

In March, Vermont DOC received applications from 25 different

organizations. A cross-agency team of six people reviewed

and scored each application based on consistent criteria, and

also analyzed proposals based on past performance outcomes,

capacity needed in each district, and total average score. Prior

to finalizing decisions, the team consulted with ermont

field staff and leadership, as well as other gency of uman

Services Departments to coordinate efforts on mutual grantees.

The Department of Corrections undertook this process as

part of Justice Reinvestment work with the legislature and

the Council of State Governments (CSG). According to CSG:

“Nearly 80 percent of all prison admissions in Vermont were

for violations of terms of furlough, probation, or parole supervision

from 2017 to 2019. The majority of people who

returned to prison for violating the terms of their furlough release

did so due to technical violations, which frequently consist

of minor offenses, such as a lack of housing, failed drug

tests, or missed appointments and curfews.” To help address

this challenge, the Vermont DOC Transitional Housing Team

created a “Theory of Change”, which serves as a framework

for investments in re-entry programs that deliver supportive

housing that is trauma-informed, provides a range of services,

and is focused on restorative justice.

Biden-Harris Administration Provides

$49,529 to a Rural Health Clinic in Vermont

to Support COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts

The Biden-Harris Administration provided

$49,529 to support a rural health clinic in

Vermont with vaccination efforts, particularly

as many communities face increased challenges

caused by the Delta variant. The funds

will go to one Rural Health Clinic (RHC)

who will use these resources to combat

COVID-19 misinformation by developing

and implementing additional vaccine confidence

and outreach efforts. The funding was

made available by the American Rescue Plan

and is being administered by the Health

Resources and Services Administration

(HRSA) through the Rural Health Clinic

Vaccine Confidence (RHCVC) Program.

“Rural health clinics play a crucial role in

supporting our national vaccination effort to

defeat COVID-19,” said HHS Secretary

Xavier Becerra. “This funding will give

trusted messengers in rural communities the

tools they need to counsel patients on how

COVID-19 vaccines can help protect them

and their loved ones.”

RHCs are well positioned to disseminate

information about how and where to get vaccinated

at the local level, and coordinate with

existing vaccination sites and public health

partners to identify strategies to increase vaccine

confidence among key populations.

RHCs will also use this funding to improve

health literacy, focusing on vaccine safety

and the benefits of broad vaccination for

rural communities. These efforts will

improve health care in rural areas by reinforcing

key messages about prevention and

treatment of COVID-19 and other infectious


HRSA is making grant awards to RHCs

Vermont Leads the Nation In Pay Parity

Vermont should celebrate the recent

announcement that the gap in earnings

the country in 2019. According to a study by

the National Women’s Law Center, the typical

cents for every $1 earned by the typical male

$49,500 per clinic site. RHCs are a special

designation given to health care practices in

underserved rural areas by the Centers for

Medicare & Medicaid Services to help

ensure access to care for rural residents.

“Rural Health Clinics are critical partners

in addressing health equity gaps, including

those related to vaccination,” said HRSA

Acting Administrator Diana Espinosa. “This

funding will help Rural Health Clinics

address the barriers people in their communities

face to getting vaccinated and build

confidence in vaccines through trusted

resources for health care services and health


HRSA also awarded a $750,000 cooperative

agreement to the National Organization

of State Offices of Rural Health to provide

technical assistance to the RHCs participating

in this Program. The National

Organization of State Offices of Rural Health

will work closely with the National

Association of Rural Health Clinics, the

technical assistance provider for the RHC

COVID-19 Testing and Mitigation Program.

Collaboration between HRSA and these

organizations ensures RHCs will receive

coordinated technical assistance to support

their COVID-19 response and improve

health care in rural communities.

The gap closed, in part, because median

earnings for women working full time year

round rose 5.6 percent from the previous

year. That was the good news. The bad news

was that median earnings for men fell a little

more than 1 percent. The study did not

UVM Mandates ‘Emergency Use’

COVID Vax for All Students

By Guy Page, Vermont Daily

All University of Vermont students attending

classes this fall must be vaccinated for

COVID-19, although all vaccines remain authorized

for emergency use only, UVM said.

UVM announced earlier this year student

vaccination with unspecified eceptions

would be required of all students once Food

and rug dministration approval

had been given. Because that approval now

seems unlikely before net year, will

forge ahead with the vaccination mandate

under emergency use authorization, a college

spokesperson said.

“I have consulted with medical and public

health eperts at the university and in the

state,” said UVM President Suresh Garimella.

“The risk is simply too high to take chances

with COVID-19, especially with thousands of

our students coming from other states where

vaccination rates are lower than ours.”

Vermont leads the nation in vaccination

rates. Currently, 83 percent of residents have

had at least one dose of vaccine.

“A fully vaccinated student population on

our campus is the best way to continue to protect

the health of students, employees, and the

broader Burlington community against CO-

VID-19,” said Garimella. “And it is the most

effective way to ensure a vibrant campus eperience

for our students.”

The announcement of the Board of Trustees

ecutive Boards decision did not eplicitly

address FDA approval. Vermont Daily

asked UVM spokesperson Enrique Corredera

to clarify: “Will UVM students be required to

be vaccinated before FDA approval?”

Corredera replied, “That is correct. We

had anticipated full approval by this fall for

at least one of the vaccines available under

Emergency Use Authorization. Medical professionals

now epect that could be as late

as in early odays action builds on

the previous announcement given the nowetended

timeline for full approval”

Daily by Corredera last month:

“Students on a college campus form a different

population with unique characteristics,”

Corredera said. “They come from states

all over the country with a wide range of vaccination

rates; They spend most of their time

on campus living in close quarters; and statistically

we have seen that vaccination rates in

this age group have been significantly lower

than in older populations. We are of course

DFR Releases Report Examining COVID-19’s Financial

Impact on Vermont’s Health Insurance Marketplace

The Vermont Department of Financial

egulation released a report eamining

the financial impacts of COVID-19 on

ermonts commercial health insurance marketplace

to determine whether any consumer

premium relief is warranted.

The report focuses on the financial performance

of BlueCross BlueShield of Vermont

BB, P ealth Group P, the

ermont ducation ealth nitiative ,

and Cigna throughout the pandemic.

The report found COVID-19 mitigation

measures, such as the postponement of nonessential

medical and surgical procedures,

resulted in ecess profits for health insurers in

2020, however, as pandemic conditions

improved, much of the deferred medical care

returned resulting in potential losses in 2021.

The report found that only two market segments

had COVID-19 related profits when

reviewing 2020 and 2021 together at this

time pecifically, BBs edicare

upplement and ignas large group market

segments, which together totaled approimately

$2.2 million in COVID-19 related

profits. However, the report also concludes

that additional premium relief in these or

other market segments may be warranted in

the future.

“The pandemic caused severe disruption to

our daily lives including preventing

Vermonters from seeking non-essential medical

care at times even though they continued

to pay their health insurance premiums,” said

DFR commissioner Michael Pieciak. “It was

important to ensure Vermonters did not overpay

for commercial health insurance during

the pandemic, and we determined that in most

instances they did not, and where they did,

Vermonters would be receiving premium


Pandemic mitigation measures also had

favorable financial impacts on providers of

other lines of insurance or eample,

previously approved $24 million in premium

relief for Vermont auto insurance policyholders

due to significant reductions in driving

during the pandemic and $3.2 million for

dental insurance policyholders due to pandemic

restrictions on routine dental care.

Regarding the health insurance premium

relief, igna has already returned approimately

$118,000 to its eligible large group

policyholders and DFR will require BCBSVT

to incorporate consumer relief totaling

approimately million in its upcoming

2022 Medicare Supplement filing.

DFR plans to review other 2022 Medicare

upplement filings and s upcoming

rate filing to determine if any additional

COVID-19 related rate relief is appropriate.

ne particular issue this past year was the - virus

to their lives. Additionally, the requirements to “stay safe”, to

“stay home” and to “get vaccinated” had to happen while all

the typical services they usually access were shut down or operating

remotely his was a profound hit to their support systems,

social wellbeing and mental health. SASH staff doubled

down on staying connected with phone calls, group socials

challenges, almost none of the residents and participants got

infected with and none were hospitalized or died from

Barre Art Splash - Artist Of The Week

Cindy Griffith with Posy

Being born and raised in Waterbury Center, Vermont contributed to becoming

an artist of nature. My art training began early at the hands (and

brush) of my father, Artist Leon Griffi th. Though he died when I was only

17, he imparted in me respect and appreciation for nature and my initial

interest in art.

Graduating magna cum laude in college, I minored in art and continued

taking art classes in many other venues. Though my professional life was diverted

to a career in public service, I eventually made art my second career.

My art career consists of non-stop exhibiting and networking. In addition,

I’ve been juried into many art exhibits such as Southern Vermont Art Center,

The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, Art in the Round Barn, Waitsfi eld,

VT, various shows at the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville, VT, Studio

Place Arts, Barre, VT, Vermont Governor’s Offi ce, Chaffee Art Center in Rutland,

VT, Gruppe Gallery, Jericho, VT, Arabella’s Gallery, Windsor, VT and

T.W. Wood Gallery, Montpelier. Other achievements include being juried into

the University of Vermont Medical Center Annual Artist Calendar in 2013

and for 2016 as well as being selected to be an Artist in Residence for the

Appalachian Mountain Club, Highland Center, Crawford Notch, NH.

In addition, I am a past President of the Vermont Pastel Society, past

Board member of the T. W. Wood Art Gallery and Museum, ongoing juried

member of the Pastel Society of America, a member of the Vermont Pastel

Society, Art Resource Association, Studio Place Arts, T.W. Wood Gallery

and Bryan Memorial Gallery.

Painting in pastel, oil and acrylic, my art has been described as magical

realism. Oil painting was the fi rst medium I fell in love with as a child, enjoying

the sensation of oils gliding over a smooth surface with a fi ne brush. A

few years ago, I fell in love with the physical intimacy of pastel as well as the

vibrancy of the colors. Click here to see the artist video.

McGarry Dairy Named Vermont Dairy Farm of the Year

McGarry Dairy, a 115-head Holstein operation in West

Berkshire, Vermont, has been honored as the Vermont Dairy

Farm of the Year for 2021.

Ed and Diane McGarry operate the farm in partnership with

their son, Brian. They started farming at their present location

in 1993 but purchased a second nearby farm in 2018 as they

needed more cropland. They rent out the six-bedroom 1860

farmhouse on the latter property as an airbnb.

The farmers currently milk 100 cows twice a day in a

double-four herringbone milking parlor, shipping their milk to

Agri-Mark/Cabot Creamery. Their average daily milk production

is 79 pounds per cow with 4.1 percent butterfat and 3.1

percent protein. Their somatic cell count is consistently under


These numbers can be attributed to overall excellent herd

management, selective breeding through artificial insemination

and careful attention to herd health and cow comfort.

Cows are housed in a freestall barn lined with rubber floor

mats with foam underneath and bedding with separated solids.

The younger animals are on sawdust with bedded pack in the

maternity area.

The McGarrys raise all their own replacements, breeding

their heifers to produce their first calf at around 22-24 months.

They breed for longevity, high fat and protein content, good

Vermont Maple Recognizes Outstanding Members

The Board of Directors of the Vermont Maple Sugar

Makers’ Association (VMSMA) selects members each year

for its Annual Maple Awards: Outstanding Sugar Maker,

Vermont Maple Person of the Year, and the Sumner Williams

Lifetime Achievement Award. The 2021 Awards were presented

by Sam Cutting IV at the Association’s Annual

Meeting held on Zoom on July 13, 2021.

Outstanding Sugar Maker Award: James Buck,

Washington VT

The VMSMA Board selects a Vermont sugar maker, individual,

or family who sets a good example for other sugar

makers to follow in cleanliness, food safety and production

practices. In addition, nominees for this award help the maple

industry by participating in county and statewide fairs to promote

and educate future sugar makers and the general public

on the benefits of pure Vermont maple syrup. This year, the

award was presented to James Buck.

James has repeatedly demonstrated a strong commitment to

the Vermont maple industry through his work at his family’s

sugarbush and also through his work with the Vermont Maple

Sugar Makers Association and his county association. James

represents the majority of VMSMA’s membership; he combines

a full-time job, balancing family responsibilities and a

love of sugar making. James also represents a great number of

newer sugar makers who have started from scratch. Like

many sugar makers, he started sugaring on a very small scale

foot and leg conformation and DPR (daughter pregnancy

rate), striving for a calving interval of 13.4 months.

They have 430 acres of owned and rented land, including

200 acres of grass and 35 acres of pasture. They put their

lower-producing cows on pasture until June, using rotational

grazing for their dry and bred heifers, which helps reduce

feeding costs.

Through good crop management practices that include

regular soil testing, crop rotation and a well-managed manure

• • •

program, they are able to grow almost all of their feed

although buy 3,500 square bales of first- and second-cut hay

for the younger cows.

They hire a custom operator for their crops, getting four

cuttings of hay each year, yielding about 11-12 tons of haylage

per acre and four tons of dry matter. For their no-till corn,

the yield is 18-20 tons of silage per acre. Because the farm is

located in a colder pocket of the state with a shorter growing

season, they grow an 83- or 85-day, drought-tolerant corn

variety, going for maximum starch.

The McGarrys were among the first dairy producers in

Vermont to experiment with Agolin, a plant-based feed additive,

in their cows’ diet to increase the butterfat and protein

content of milk while helping to reduce methane emissions.

The soft study was supported by Barry Callebaut, an environmentally

conscious company in St. Albans that manufactures

high-quality chocolate and cocoa products.

University of Vermont Extension and the Vermont Dairy

Industry Association, in cooperation with the New England

Green Pastures Program, present the Vermont Dairy Farm of

the Year award annually to an outstanding dairy farm. Other

finalists were the Corse Farm Dairy, Whitingham; Knoxland

Farms, Bradford and Wells River; and R & N Thibault Farm,


in his backyard. And like many sugar makers, his operation

and his commitment to maple has grown over the years.

James and his father bought a chunk of land, cleared it, made

their own lumber, and built their own sugarhouse. They are

also concerned about the future of maple and have developed

their sugarbush by continuing to thin and improve their woods

for future generations.

Vermont Maple Person of the Year: Mark Cannella, UVM


This award is presented to someone whose work benefits

the entire maple industry and who may or may not be a sugar

maker themselves. As a Farm Business Management Specialist

with UVM Extension, Mark Cannella works with Vermont’s

farms to help develop fiscal management tools and data.

Mark’s work is invaluable to Vermont’s maple producers as

well as the entire industry and their associated lending institutions.

He has attended and presented at many maple conferences

to share his knowledge and research with producers and

other industry experts. Although Mark is not currently a

maple producer, he cut his teeth sugaring when he was

actively involved in the Shelburne Farms sugaring operation.

Sumner Williams Lifetime Achievement Award: Mark

Isselhardt, UVM Extension

This award is presented in memory of Sumner Williams,

the Assistant Director of the UVM Proctor Maple Research

Center. In honor of him, the VMSMA Board recognizes outstanding

service and dedication to the Vermont maple industry.

This year’s recipient is Mark Isselhardt, Vermont’s Maple

Specialist with UVM Extension. Mark works in the research

field of maple and has worked tirelessly to provide the tools

and knowledge to producers from Vermont and beyond that

really make a difference. His research on achieving high sap

yields, managing healthy sugarbushes, and creating efficiencies

in syrup production has been invaluable to the maple

community. Mark goes above and beyond to share his expertise

with producers as well as being readily available and open

to talk all things maple with any sugar maker. He has also

been a huge part of the success of VMSMA’s Annual Maple


The Vermont Maple Sugar Makers’ Association (VMSMA),

founded in 1893, is one of the oldest agricultural organizations

in the United States and represents over 1,000 members.

The VMSMA helps to promote and protect the branding of

pure Vermont maple products and to serve as the official

voice for Vermont sugar makers. Our members take great

pride in maintaining a prosperous maple industry and a working

landscape that future generations will enjoy. Vermont

sugar makers produce over 2 million gallons of maple syrup

annually (about one half of the production in the United

States). More information at

Mad River Chorale Spring Small

Concert Now Available Online

Finally, after a long winter and spring of rehearsing

in isolation, the Mad River Chorale

has released a brief concert on YouTube under

the search heading Mad River Chorale.

The last 18 months have been odd for

choral singers, as they have been for all of

us. Many singers dealt with isolation by participating

in singing rehearsals on Zoom.

However, because of the time lag, whenever

we sang together we had to mute ourselves.

Next, we each had to record ourselves separately

and send files to our conductor ary

Jane Austin, who put the voices together into

a holiday concert and now a spring/summer

concert to be shown online.

The holiday concert, Towards the Light,

was a full one which has received almost

1000 views. The current concert is much

shorter. The hardest part, making the recordings,

came ust as ermont was finally emerging

from strict COVID rules and singers had

had enough of their computers.

Their First Teacher is You is a memoir and

and author Duncan C. Nutter has a unique

and varied background not only as a father but

call to action for parents to begin to acknowledge

their accountability in how they live their

lives and the best way to model their lifestyle

as a positive and nurturing environment for

their children. Nutter himself has struggled

with being bullied, physical and mental abuse

and has turned those challenges into learning

who demands all students are held accountable

for their actions through academics and

behavior while keeping his own example in

check. This is a powerful model for parents

Rediscover the Outdoors at Family Camping Weekend

After a year’s hiatus, due to the pandemic, the Outdoor

Family Weekend (OFW) is back with a number of new, fun

and engaging hands-on workshops and activities for both

experienced and first-time campers.

University of Vermont (UVM) Extension and the Vermont

Agency of Natural Resources’ Departments of Fish and

Wildlife and Forests, Parks and Recreation have teamed up to

host the event, which will be held Sept. 10-12 at Stillwater

State Park in Groton. Families are invited to join in the fun to

learn or improve outdoor skills, try a new recreational activity

or discover something unfamiliar in nature.

The $175 registration fee covers the campsite (up to eight

individuals), three workshops per camper, nightly campfires

and entertainment and access to all park facilities including

free rental of canoes. A few workshops will incur an additional

fee for materials.

A $50 discount will be given to families of current military

personnel. To receive a discount code for registration, call

Virginia Jaquish at (802) 751-8307 or (800) 545-8920, ext.

assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and many workshops

fill to capacity quickly.

The weekend kicks off with an ice cream social on Friday

evening. OFW alum and woodsman Nate Gusakov of Lincoln

will share original songs and traditional banjo tunes by the


On Saturday evening campers will be treated to s’mores

and explore nature’s mysteries through community storytelling

with Virginia Holiman, a Highgate farm-to-school educator,

and Kurt Valenta, founder of the Exordium Nature

Experience in Enosburgh Falls.

Participants are encouraged to bring a piece of cloth, fiber

or natural material to the gathering to be used to weave a

tapestry of words and memories. They also will have a chance

to view and touch pelts, skulls, tracks and other objects from

nature before the storytelling session.

Each camper may sign up for three expert-led workshops,

choosing from more than 30 options. These include outdoor

cooking, bushwhacking, mountain biking, turkey calling and

hunting safety, painting in the outdoors, upland game and bird

Eugene “Gene” Provost

Eugene “Gene” Provost, 91, of

Northfield, VT, passed away

unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 20, 2021,

at the Mayo Residential Care in

Northfield. Gene was born on June 30,

1930, in Northfield, VT, the son of the

late Adelord and Mary Bennett Provost.

He was a 1948 graduate of Northfield

High School. After graduation, Gene

served in the United States Air Force.

Once he finished active duty he joined the reserves in

Burlington, VT.

Gene, a kind, generous and devoted family man and friend

to many, had a passion for cars and people. This ended up

guiding the course of his career path. He progressed from his

early beginnings as a Sales Manager for Bean Chevrolet to

becoming the founder/owner of his own auto dealership,

Provost Auto Mart, for over 25 years. Gene enjoyed a stellar

reputation within the community and his profession. He met

many people throughout his career and was always honored

to consider many of them friends. Gene also owned and

maintained rental properties over his lifetime. He was the

most compassionate landlord a tenant could ever hope for. He

lived life to fullest and truly loved helping others. He was a

dear friend to many.

On August 9, 1952, he married the love of his life, Margaret

Fortier, of Barre, VT. Married for 64 years, Margaret and

Gene raised their five children in Northfield. Gene was a

wonderful husband, father and grandfather who expressed his

love to us through his kindness and laughter but always led by

his fine example. He was thoughtful and sincere, helpful, and

dedicated, willing to do anything for anyone. He was an

extremely proud lifetime resident of Northfield and spent his

life dedicated to the community and Vermont. Gene served

on several local boards and committees throughout his life

and was a faithful parishioner of Saint John the Evangelist

Catholic Church.

His greatest treasures were his children and grandchildren.

He loved nothing more than spending summers at the family

cottage in Mallett’s Bay, VT, where he and Margaret instilled

the importance of family, the value of traditions and to live

life with a sense of excitement. He was a grill master like no

other and loved serving up “Pa’s” much-loved chicken on

Sundays surrounded by his family. To Gene, every person that

walked through the door was welcomed as family – he would

always greet them with a warm smile. Hot summer days were

spent on the lake boating, water-skiing, anchoring at sandy

beaches and coves, swimming, or back on the beach roasting

marshmallows around the campfire. He was happiest with the

hustle and bustle of life on Lake Champlain surrounded by

family, friends, and neighbors. He himself was typically the

lead storyteller sharing his life’s adventures but genuinely

enjoyed listening to others experiences as well. He and

Margaret were also blessed to have spent many of our chilly

Vermont winters in Venice, Florida with treasured friends

and family.

Gene is survived by his children and their spouses, Karen

(Chuck) Bedell of Hollis, NH; Mark (Kathryn) Provost of

Montpelier, VT; Kim (Peter) MacDonald of Portsmouth, NH;

Kathy (Michael) Ward of Laconia, NH and Michael (Heather)

Provost of South Burlington, VT, his 10 grandchildren, Ryan

(Becky) Bedell, Eric (Meaghan) Bedell, Christopher

MacDonald, Jennifer Provost, Matthew Provost, Hayden

Provost, Kelly MacDonald, Sam Ward, Caroline Provost and

Joseph Ward and two great-grandchildren, Ainsley and

Griffin Bedell, his sister Jackie Provost O’Hern, brother-inlaw

Maurice Fortier (Dottie) as well as several nieces, nephews

and cousins.

He was predeceased by his wife Margaret, his parents,

brothers Richard Provost, Donald Provost, sisters-in-law

Jackie Provost, Murielle Provost, Theresa Grenier, Laurette

Buswell, Lucille Quesnel, brothers-in-law Robert O’Hern,

Amie Grenier, Roy Buswell, David Norton, and Carl Quesnel.

There will be no calling hours. A Celebration of Life will

be held on Monday, August 2, 2021, at 11 a.m at Saint John

the Evangelist Catholic Church at 206 Vine St., Northfield,

VT. Arrangements are in the care of Kingston Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Gene’s memory may be

made to Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church at 206

Vine St., Northfield, VT 05663, or Mayo Healthcare, 71

Seriously Addressing Homelessness: What Is One To Do?

• • •

By Morgan W. Brown

First, it is essential to understand how the current crisis

concerning homelessness and related matters far predates the

current covid-19 pandemic, where there have been large numbers

of persons living unhoused and are, once again, being

abandoned to reside on the streets, underneath bridges or in

the woods and so on.

This was how it had been well before the pandemic hit our

region. It continues to this day and will only get much worse

if something real is not done to seriously address these and

related matters.

As such, among other dangers encountered by persons living

unhoused on a routine basis, these individuals and families

remain quite vulnerable to being institutionalized under

the powerful authoritarian thumb of the state (read: government,

including at the municipal level) and its agencies or

departments in its various regressive and most costly forms or

otherwise succumbing to grave illness and disability or even

resulting in their death.

Either that or local, county, state or federal governments

feign concern, however otherwise mostly exercise deliberate

indifference, oftentimes citing a lack of funds and resources

as being the problem.

They Named it ‘Grand’ for a Reason.

By G. E. Shuman

If you are like me, there are places and

adventures in the world that you would

like to see or experience, but that for some

reason or other you haven’t been able to.

Little things like holding down a job, paying

the bills, and raising kids seem to get in the way of most

of us being able to do those ‘extra’ things that we would love

to do. I’ve never been hang gliding, scuba diving, or motorcycle

racing, but I still intend to. (Please don’t tell my wife

that I said that.)

Words have been my thing for as long as I can remember,

but I learned from something Lorna and I experienced a few

weeks ago that there are some things that simply defy an accurate

description. Words just don’t always cut it, at least the

words that I know don’t. It dawned on me during that experience,

that this is likely the reason people who do or see some

super thing cannot always seem to relate that experience to the

rest of us, at least not to the point that we truly understand

what it was that they experienced.

For family reasons unrelated to the point of this column,

Lorna and I had the great pleasure of spending a few days with

her late dad’s wonderful wife Olivia, at Olivia’s home in

Arizona. While there, we took a two-day trip. We had never

been to the Grand Canyon and Olivia thought that we should

see that enormous natural wonder. Boy, was she ever right!

A few days into our visit we started on our little excursion

north and did visit the canyon. When we first approached the

site and viewed that massive, beautiful part of God’s creation,

I was pretty much dumbfounded. I hope my mouth didn’t

actually hang open, but it might have. If it did, I hope no one

took a picture of that.

I do know that I stood there on that precipice, (behind a

sturdy guardrail, of course. I’m not stupid) and could not find

words fit to describe what my eyes were seeing. I really could

not. I simply repeated AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!

over and over, with a few exclamations of AWESOME!

mixed in.

Yes, the experience was truly amazing, but, as I said, the

words of man, in English or likely in any other language, have

no ability to truly describe that Grand Canyon, or probably

many other things that God has created on our Earth to proclaim

His great majesty and power.

You know, life is short, and riddled with labor, trials, and

many other things that consume the short time we are allotted

here. I hope you will love your family every day that you

have, do good to others whenever you can, and, if you have

the time, visit some of the wonders people have not been able

to accurately describe to you. That is not their fault. They may

have only stood their gawking and repeating the words amazing!

amazing! amazing! just as I did.

The Grand Canyon is, truly, one of the most indescribable

and amazing places I have ever visited. They named it ‘Grand’

for a reason. Please see it if you can. Thank you Olivia, for

taking us there.

Statement of Lt. Governor Gray on the Return to Service of

Amtrak’s “Vermonter’ and “Ethan Allen” Lines

Lt. Governor Gray joined state and community leaders to

mark Amtrak’s return to service in Vermont. Gray delivered

remarks at the St. Alban’s kick-off before riding the train from

St. Albans to Essex Junction. Gray released the following


“I know I join many Vermonters in celebrating Amtrak’s

return to service in Vermont. Not only does today’s return to

service mark an important milestone in our successful fight

against COVID-19, but also the renewed opportunity for Vermonters

to travel the state, region and nation by train.

ike many, remember my first mtrak trip was and

I had just started working for Congressman Peter Welch in

Washington. I remember standing at Union Station and hearing

the ‘all aboard’ for ‘the Vermonter’. Although I was far

away, I felt close to home knowing I could always take the

train home to Vermont or all the way to St. Albans. I also remember

the first time traveled to ew ork ity arrived

by Amtrak. As a farm kid from Orange County, I will never

forget arriving at Penn tation and taking those first steps up

on to the street near Times Square.

Statement from Governor Phil Scott On the

Canadian Border Travel Announcement

Governor Phil Scott issued the following statement in response

to the Canadian Government’s announcement that it

will ease travel restrictions for fully vaccinated Americans,

effective August 9:

“I am encouraged to hear that the Canadian Government

has announced they will soon welcome fully vaccinated

Americans to Canada once again. Vermonters value the close

trading relationship and friendship we share with Canadians,

and I know many are eagerly awaiting visiting again after

Saturday Night Fever (1977)


’m going nowhere, somebody help me…” -Stayin’ Alive

“I They say that it is wholesome for people to spend their

whole lives in the town where they were born and grew up. It

helps build a tight knit community. It instills a sense of security

and personal responsibility. It makes you feel like you


I basically agree with that. However, not all communities

are good influences. What if your parents are unsupportive

and your friends are jerks? In that case, you should probably

move away from your hometown as soon as possible.

“Saturday Night Fever” is a gritty drama about a young man

who learns how lousy his community is.

The community in question is Bay Ridge: a not-so-nice

neighborhood in Brooklyn, right across from Staten Island.

The movie follows a few meaningful weeks in the young

life of Tony Monero (John Travolta).

Tony is 19, he lives with his parents, and he works at a

hardware store.

He has nothing going for him. But, boy, can he dance.

The only thing that matters to Tony is Friday night with his

idiot friends at the local disco. Tony practices his disco moves

and it has paid off. He is the king of the floor and women

throw themselves at him.

The dance scenes in “Saturday Night Fever” haven’t aged a

day. Young Travolta still looks amazingly cool.

Outside the disco, Tony isn’t doing as well.

His home life is miserable. The Moneros are a stereotypical

2nd generation Italian family. There’s the eldest son who can

do no wrong. There’s Tony who can do no right. And there’s

the daughter. Tony’s sister is probably the smartest and best of

the siblings, but it doesn’t matter because women are plainly

less important.

Addressing Homelessness

continued from previous page

Which begs the question, what is one to do?

What is crucial to realize as well as acknowledge is that the

situation has been and continues to actually be more about the

need for exercising vigorous political will and then making

these matters among the most urgent (read: highest) priorities

to be seriously addressed in a meaningful manner.

This, however, takes proper leadership -- at all levels.

If this was in fact done and leadership seriously undertaken,

those whose job and responsibility it is to do so would be

aggressively seeking out and obtaining the necessary funding,

resources and support required to bring about a meaningful

and sufficient resolution to help meet what has been and continues

to be an ever growing crisis for many individuals and

families who are most in need living within local communities

across the region, state and nation. Instead, lame excuses and

even lamer rationales are oftentimes offered and cited for their

failure to act in a deliberate, compassionate and thoughtful


• • •

With over 50 years of service, Amtrak brings the world to

Vermont and Vermont to the world. In 2019, the Vermonter

alone saw more than 98,000 passengers.

As we look to the future and consider the challenges posed

by the persistent climate crisis, we might find ourselves looking

to the past. We should remember that trains in Vermont are

timeless; they guided the layout of our small towns, villages

and communities and served as a main source of transport for

both people and freight.

I welcome the proposed investments by President Biden

and Vermont’s Congressional Delegation in infrastructure and

high-speed rail. The proposed rail investments in the American

Jobs Plan will allow more Vermonters an alternate form

of public transportation for work and travel. The investments

will also enhance the state’s transportation resiliency while

reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. My most sincere congratulations

to Amtrak as well as federal, state and community

leaders for today’s resumption of service. Trains are back,


more than 16 months.

“As Vermont leads the United States in vaccinations, and

Canada makes great progress administering vaccines, now is

the time to begin safely resuming non-essential travel, and I

hope our federal government follows suit. The Green Mountain

State looks forward to welcoming our neighbors to the

north back to Vermont, I look forward to learning more from

our federal partners in the coming days.”

Women are treated very poorly in Tony’s world and the film

doesn’t sugar coat it. In Bay Ridge, young women are valued

so little that they end up degrading themselves. And after they

have degraded themselves, the young men just shake their

heads and move on to someone else.

Some of those young men are Tony’s friends. The film

explores Tony’s awakening as he slowly realizes that the guys

he hangs out with are racist sexist losers.

In the climax, Tony wins the big dance contest but he is far

from happy about it. It is plain as day that he was only the best

white dancer; the Hispanic couple deserved to win but they are

effectively ineligible because of their race. At this point, Tony

knows that he has to leave his family, his friends, and his toxic

neighborhood behind.

At its core, “Saturday Night Fever” is the anti-“Rocky.”

“Rocky” is the feel-good story of an Italian guy from an ethnic

neighborhood who grows up to be a decent man and makes it

big. “Saturday Night Fever” is the grim tale of an Italian guy

from an ethnic neighborhood who is on the road to nowhere

until he realizes that he has to get out.

It must be kept in mind about how there is a much higher

cost, including financially and also in human terms, associated

with doing nothing.

Bringing about actual change to what has sadly become

accepted as being the status quo would also require no longer

placing blame on unhoused individuals and families for their

circumstances and treating them as if they are the problem;

rather, people who are living unhoused should be regarded

and treated as being part of the solution and, if they are able

and willing to do so, invited to be the primary member of a

team working with them in order to help them become permanently


It might not be easy or simple to achieve, but it remains

doable all the same.

Morgan W. Brown previously lived unhoused for many

years of his life, including twelve years without permanent

housing during the last go around. He has been permanently

housed in Central Vermont for nearly twelve years. He formerly

served on the Montpelier Homelessness Task Force

and, when possible, continues to be engaged in activism and

advocacy concerning these and related matters in various

the workplace is compounded by someone’s biased interference

tand your ground, and youll soon find allies

have to be put on hold because of a family member’s problems.

Don’t hesitate to get involved. Your help could make

More Couples Are Embracing Edgy, Adventurous Weddings

Brides and grooms once felt compelled

to conform to the trappings of traditional

weddings. From uber-romantic vows to

pastel colors to the penultimate white

tiered cake, various wedding components

were long considered must-haves.

But modern couples are increasingly

expressing their individuality, and even

embracing more edgy and adventurous

elements, when planning their weddings.

According to The Knot, a leading bridal resource and

information site, todays weddings are not what they were

just a few years ago. Bold colors, exotic cakes and nontraditional

foliage, are just some of the elements modern couples

are embracing to set their weddings apart.


Vineyards and catering halls can be great places to tie the

knot, but couples who like to push the envelope are looking

to more adventurous locales to impart their unique spin on

their weddings. Sharing vows atop a mountain crest at the

end of a favorite hiking trail or on a roller coaster at a theme

park that harkens back to a first date are some adventurous

places to tie the knot.


Couples may want to break with tradition by offering

a wide selection of foods at their receptions. These foods

can include items that fit with their specific ethnic cuisines,

gourmet comfort foods (think cocktail franks wellington),

or foods that fit with their dietary choices, such as organic

or vegan options. Work with a caterer to provide a variety of

tasty choices.

Couples will remember their wedding day for the rest of

their lives. The day a couple says “I do” is often the culmination

of months of planning, and much of those efforts are

dedicated to creating a special ceremony that will create

cherished memories.

he choice of venue is a significant decision, and todays

couples have more options regarding where to tie the knot

than ever before. Many couples on the cusp of getting

hitched are looking to do so in the great outdoors.

Nature took center stage at weddings in 2020, as many

couples moved their ceremonies outdoors to adhere to

government guidelines issued in response to the COVID-19

pandemic. Couples considering outdoor venues for their

weddings can look for certain features that can make the big

day as special as it is safe.

natural beauty of a mountaintop or a beach with the sound of


Brides can put new spins on their gowns by adding color

• Plan B: Couples may work hard to ensure everything

goes off without a hitch, but ultimately the elements are in

control during outdoor wedding ceremonies. So couples

hoping to host an outdoor ceremony may want to look for

sites that have a readily accessible indoor option just in case

Mother Nature is not cooperating. Many reception venues

are capable of hosting indoor and outdoor ceremonies as

well as dinners, so this might be the best option for couples

who want to have outdoor weddings during times of the year

when weather is typically inclement or unpredictable, such as

winter, early spring or late fall.

Features To Look For In An Outdoor Wedding Venue

sites. Professional photographers can help couples determine

which sites will make for great photos and which ones might

make it hard to capture the beauty of the sites surroundings

• Accessibility: Couples will want to make sure all of their

guests can be there to witness the ceremony. Before choosing

an outdoor ceremony site, consider those guests who may

have mobility issues, such as grandparents. A midday hike

up a mountain might be doable for most guests, but it may

eclude others from witnessing the ceremony ry to find an

outdoor ceremony site thats readily accessible to everyone

In addition, keep in mind that the more accessible a site is the

easier it is to get away and get indoors if the weather takes a

sudden, unexpected turn for the worse.

utdoor weddings are wildly popular ouples who find

outdoor ceremony sites with certain features may rest easier

knowing they and their guests are safe and sound no matter

what Mother Nature has in store come the big day.

imagined. We offer a wide variety of wedding services, consultations and assistance.

Summer Harvest and Care of

By Melinda Myers

Pick raspberries when the fruit is firm but soft, deeply colored,

and easily slides off the hard core. Check your raspberry

patch and harvest every few days to avoid overripe fruit

that attracts picnic beetles and other pests. Consider wearing

long pants and a long sleeve shirt for protection against the

thorns and mosquitoes.

Place berries in shallow containers when harvesting and

storing to avoid crushing the delicate fruit. Chill any uneaten

berries within two hours of harvesting to preserve the freshness

and flavor. Wait to wash berries until right before use to

further lengthen their storage life.

Once the summer harvest is complete, it is time to do a bit

of pruning. Remove the canes that bore the summer fruit back

to ground level. These canes will not form fruit in future

years. Removing them now gives new canes room to grow

and reduces the risk of disease.

This is also a good time to check all canes for signs of disease

problems. Look for sunken and discolored areas, cankers,

and spotted, yellow or brown leaves. These symptoms

along with dry crumbly fruit are clues disease, like anthracnose

and spur blight have moved into your raspberry patch.

Remove and destroy diseased canes to ground level as soon as

they are found. This is often enough to manage these diseases.

Summer is also a good time to thin the remaining canes on

summer bearing raspberries. Remove weak or damaged

canes, leaving three or four of the sturdiest per foot of row or

Fall bearing raspberries are handled a bit differently. Prune

them like the summer bearing raspberries to harvest two crops

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department

says any people are aing proles wit

bears looking for food near their homes,

and with the food scrap ban in effect the

departent is proiding tips or people wo

are oposting at oe so tey an aoid

attracting hungry bears.

“We have been receiving lots of reports of bears on decks,

tearing down bird feeders, wrecking beehives, killing chickens,

and getting into trash, compost and garbage containers,”

said bear biologist Forrest Hammond. “We are offering some

guidance on how to compost at home without attracting


“First though, to deter bears, bird feeders need to be taken

down until we have a foot or more of snow in December.

Then, make sure anything else that might smell like food is

picked up. And keep your trash container secured inside a

sturdy building and don’t put it outside until the morning of

pickup. Beehives, chicken coops and compost bins can be

protected with electric fencing.”

If you know bears are active in your neighborhood, the best

way to avoid attracting them is to take food scraps to one of

the drop-off stations. You can locate them by contacting your

local solid waste management district or town at, or ask your trash hauler if they pick

up food scraps for composting.

Composting at home while minimizing the chances of

attracting bears can best be done with these tips:

• Use three parts of brown material for one part of green material.

Browns can be dried leaf and yard debris, wood chips,

which often can be delivered to your house free by a local tree

service company, or shredded paper. Greens include kitchen

scraps, vegetables and small amounts of fruits. Adding lots of

brown material minimizes smells and speeds up composting.

• No meat, bones or seafood leftovers. They do not break

down quickly and are strong wildlife attractants. The food

scrap ban allows people who compost at home to dispose of

meat, bones and seafood in the trash, so they can be kept in a

freezer until trash day.

• Give your compost oxygen by frequently mixing it or turning

it over if it is in a container. This reduces odors and

speeds up composting.

• Does your compost smell? If so, turning it, adding more

brown material and adding a layer of wood shavings or sawpage

ing. Cut or mow all the canes to ground level once the plants

are dormant and before growth begins in spring. This pruning

technique eliminates the summer crop but is much easier, less

time consuming, and eliminates any animal and winter damage

in just one cut.

Consider planting a summer and a fall bearing raspberry

patch to maximize the harvest. You’ll enjoy summer raspberries

from one planting plus a larger, earlier harvest from your

fall bearing raspberries when pruning all the canes to ground

level each year.

Grab your favorite berry harvest basket, dress appropriately

and head to your raspberry patch. With every bite of freshfrom-the-garden

dust to the top should solve the issue.

• Enclose your composter with electric fencing or compost in

a hard, durable container with a lid that will be challenging for

a bear to open. Some types of tumblers are bear-proof.

• Electric fencing, with food scent added to the wires will

discourage even persistent bears.

• If you are currently having a bear issue, delay starting your

new compost pile until the bear issue resolves. Until then,

keep food scraps in the freezer or bring them to a collection


To learn more about properly composting food waste, go to

the Department of Environmental Conservation’s website at

The public is encouraged to contact their local warden if

they are having a bear issue. You can find out who your local

warden is at

Contacting your warden or submitting a black bear incident

report helps wildlife officials keep track of bear issues around

the state and may help shape future regulations regarding

Raspberry Freezer

Jam: Savor The

Flavor All Year Long!

Is there anything as

delicious as a sun-warmed

raspberry plucked from

the bush and popped into

your mouth?

By Joyce Amsden

Extension Master Gardener Intern

University of Vermont

The flip side of this simple summer pleasure is how

fragile your freshly picked raspberries are and how quick

to spoil. Fortunately, raspberries freeze well and are a tasty

addition to baked goods, smoothies or yogurt. Another

tasty option is freezer jam. Because the berries are not

cooked, the flavor is distinctly fresh.

Here are some helpful tips for making raspberry freezer


Do some research to learn when raspberries will be

available in your area. The timing varies from early July to

early fall depending on the varieties grown and the location

of the berry farm.

Purchase fruit pectin. Several brands are available, but

check that the brand you select offers a recipe for freezer

jam. Some brands offer a reduced sugar version. Read the

instructions and make sure you have everything you need.

Pick only ripe berries that separate from the core with a

gentle tug. Avoid picking when the berries and bushes are

wet with dew or rain. Wet berries mold very quickly.

The ideal containers for picking are shallow fiber or

wood boxes that can be set into a basket hung from a belt

loop. In a deep container, the berries in the bottom can get

crushed and lead to rapid spoilage. Handle your berries


If you travel a distance from home in a hot car, consider

bringing along a cooler with ice packs and/or cool the car

before heading for home.

At home, sort through your berries immediately, watching

for debris and squashed or mushy berries. Place the

fruit gently into freezer containers. Refrigerate or freeze

within a day or two to preserve freshness. Immediate chilling

can also prevent any problematic effects of spotted

wing drosophila (

No time to make jam? It will be just as good made later

with frozen berries.

Remember, successful freezer jam is dependent on accurate

measurement of the ingredients. Follow the recipe

exactly. Measure carefully.

Whether using fresh or previously frozen berries, crush

a single layer of berries at a time with a potato masher and

measure. A quart-size glass measuring cup works great for

this. Measure the sugar into a separate bowl so that you can

begin again if you get distracted or lose count.

Follow the package directions. This generally involves

mixing the sugar and crushed berries, cooking the pectin

briefly and adding it to the berry mixture. Portion the jam

into containers, cover and let it sit for a time. Refrigerate or

freeze. Your jam will keep several weeks in the refrigerator

or a year (or more) in the freezer.

Six months later as the north wind howls and blows, pull

a jar of jam from the freezer, sit down with a mug of your

favorite warm beverage, a slice of buttered toast slathered

with raspberry jam and revisit the sweet sensations of



Give Your Vegetables A

Mid-Season Boost

For a fall harvest, plant areas in the garden that were not planted

this spring or replant rows\

Still Time to Plant


Now is the time to plan and plant

vegetables for a bountiful fall

harvest. Planting now extends the

harvest season for greater yield

without expanding the garden.

By Melinda Myers

Start by looking for vacant spaces in the vegetable garden.

Fill areas that were not planted this spring or replant

rows of quick maturing vegetables like lettuce, spinach,

radishes, and beets that have already been harvested.

Expand your search to other vacant spaces in flowerbeds,

mixed borders, and containers.

Select vegetables that will have sufficient time to reach

maturity before your growing season ends. Simply count

the number of days from planting to the date of the average

first fall frost in your area. Those in frost-free areas can

plant longer season crops that benefit from maturing during

the cooler months of fall.

Second plantings can be started from seeds or plants, if

available. Check the back of the seed packet or plant tag to

find out how many days each plant variety needs to grow

and produce. Add a few weeks to allow time for harvesting.

As long as there is enough time for the seeds to sprout,

grow, and produce before the end of your growing season,

they can be added to the garden.

Fill your late season garden with lots of variety. Include

root crops like beets, carrots, radishes, and turnips. Greens

like leaf lettuce, spinach, collards, kale, and chard provide

the basis for a great fall salad and some make great additions

to stir fries. Try onions, kohlrabi, cucumbers, broccoli,

cauliflower, cabbage, and sweet corn for some variety.

Just make sure the seeds or transplants will have enough

time to grow and produce.

Some vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels

sprouts taste better when grown and harvested during

cooler months. These along with other vegetables like spinach,

mustard, lettuce, radishes, and leeks tolerate a light

frost, giving you a longer harvest season.

Wait for the soil to cool before planting lettuce and other

vegetable seeds that require cooler temperatures to germinate.

Or start the plants indoors and move them into the

garden as transplants. Help keep the soil cool by mulching

plantings with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, or other

organic mulch.

Water your gardens as needed throughout the season.

New plantings will need a bit more attention when establishing

roots during the hot summer months.

Extend the harvest season with a bit of frost protection

or added warmth as needed. Cover plantings with floating

row covers that allow light and water through while trapping

heat around the plants.

Cold frames and high tunnels are other options that

allow you to plant earlier and harvest longer. You will find

ready-to-purchase options or instructions for creating your

own season extending growing system.

Midsummer planting adds a few extra weeks, even

months, to your harvest season. You will enjoy the gardenfresh

flavor while benefiting from the increased nutritional

value of your fall meals.

Now that it’s July, you may be noticing that

your garden plants are starting to flower or

even set fruit. Adding fertilizer by sidedressing

heavy-feeding vegetables can give them the

boost they need for optimal production.

By Andrea Knepper

Extension Master Gardener Intern

University of Vermont

Heavy feeders are those that have higher nutrient needs.

Oftentimes, these vegetables take longer to reach maturity and

are those that we plant after the temperatures warm up.

Examples of heavy feeders are tomatoes, peppers, corn,

squash, melons and cucumbers. Other common garden vegetables

that can benefit from some extra nutrition are broccoli,

cabbage, beets and carrots.

There are a number of options for delivering necessary

nutrients to your plants mid-season. Compost, granular fertilizers

and liquid fertilizers are all readily available at your

local garden center. Manure is not recommended unless it is

completely composted.

Whenever possible, always choose an organic fertilizer.

Correctly applied organic fertilizers are the safest choices for

the environment.

If you choose a commercial fertilizer, look for one that is

well-balanced, labeled 5-5-5, for example, which means it

contains five percent nitrogen, five percent potassium and five

percent phosphorus. Unlike the fertilizer you may use for your

lawn, vegetables should not be given high nitrogen fertilizers

mid-season. A burst of nitrogen can encourage the plant to

focus on foliage production rather than the desired vegetables.

All fertilizers will have application directions on the label.

You will need to determine the appropriate amount for the

plants you intend to fertilize.

Liquid fertilizer often will need to be diluted. If using a

household container to dilute, please mark its contents to

avoid cross-contamination or accidental poisoning.

Take care when applying fertilizer around your vegetables.

Non-diluted liquid fertilizer or granules applied too close to

the plant can cause damage.

To avoid this, it is important to read the directions carefully

and sidedress. Sidedressing means fertilizing alongside a row

of crops or around the base of an individual plant.

Before applying fertilizer, weed the bed and lightly cultivate

the soil. Lightly cultivating around the plants will help

prevent run-off, especially when using a liquid fertilizer,

keeping the fertilizer where it should be.

If your kale plants succumbed to cabbage

worms, don’t fret. You can start a second

planting in midsummer to enjoy a bountiful

harvest in the fall.

By Nadie VanZandt

Extension Master Gardener

University of Vermont

Kale is a good choice for succession planting because it

thrives in cool weather, tolerates frost and matures quickly

(40-65 days). This also applies to other plants with the same

attributes such as collard greens, Swiss chard and leaf lettuce.

Before you begin, check the average frost date for your

U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zone (

Depending on where you live in

Vermont, it varies from anytime between early September and

late October. Using this information, you can compute an

appropriate planting schedule.

After the summer solstice, the days get shorter and the air

gets cooler. This causes plants to grow more slowly than in the

spring. For this reason, it is important to include a couple of

extra weeks to the “days to maturity” listed on your seed

packet to determine a suitable planting date.

To find your midsummer planting date, add 14 days to the

days of maturity, and use this sum to count back from the

average frost date.

As usual, remember to choose disease-resistant varieties. If

you have kale seeds left over from spring, use them.

Otherwise, this is a great time to try a new variety, such as

red Russian kale (Brassica napus var. pabularia ‘Red Russian’)

with light blue-green leaves and purple stems. With 50 days to

maturity, this colorful variety is a good choice for direct seeding

in midsummer and makes a stunning addition to any

vegetable plot.

To prepare your planting area, begin by pulling the earlyseason

plants that have bolted or look tired.

Weed the area and remove the roots from the previous

crops. Next, add some compost to replenish the nutrients and

turn over the soil.

Direct seed kale in a space previously occupied by a different

vegetable plant. This practice of crop rotation helps balance

soil nutrients and avoids propagating plant-specific diseases.

Sidedressing heavy feeders, such as corn, with a diluted liquid or

other fertilizer can give them a boost for optimal production.

(photo: Andrea Knepper)

Apply the fertilizer four to six inches from the base of the

plant. I find it helpful to mark the area I want to fertilize by

making a shallow trench with my garden trowel. If your garden

is mulched, pull back the mulch where necessary.

If applying granular fertilizer, spread it over the appropriate

area and incorporate into the soil. Gently mix it in, taking care

not to disturb roots. Your hands are perfect for this task, or

gently use a hand cultivator. Liquid fertilizer, diluted if necessary,

can be poured over the soil a safe distance from the


Compost also can be used as a sidedressing. Generally, a

handful per plant is enough. Try to place compost before a

rain, which will help the nutrients make their way to the plant


Wait until tomatoes, peppers and squash are flowering

before sidedressing. Another application can be made about

four weeks later.

Broccoli, cabbage and their relatives can be fertilized

beginning about four weeks after planting and every two to

three weeks afterward. For root crops, like carrots or beets,

fertilize after you have thinned.

Kale for Autumn Harvest

If planting kale and other cruciferous crops, gardeners should

watch for cabbage moths, which lay eggs that hatch into hungry

caterpillars. (photo: Nadie VanZandt)

Once your seeds are in the ground, protect your seedlings

from the sun. Add a layer of mulch, and keep the soil moist. If

possible, use a shade cloth to keep the soil cool or take advantage

of tall vegetables nearby to provide natural shade.

A shade cloth that completely covers your seedlings also

can stop white butterflies from laying eggs on your plants.

Later, this will prevent an infestation of cabbage worms.

During the cool days of autumn when other plants begin to

slow down, kale continues to grow and develop a sweeter

taste. You also may find that you will reap a better harvest in

the fall since most insect pests do not survive cold temperatures.

“McCartney 3,2,1” -- Six

decades’ worth of footage

of Paul McCartney singing

is not enough. There will

compile his life’s work into a six-episode docuseries that

begins Friday, July 16. Covering every chapter of Sir Paul’s

career, it includes casual conversations between

McCartney and Rubin interspersed with media clips, family

movies and concerts. Watching Paul listen to audio of

Paul, we see the memories reappear on his face as he

“Black Widow” (PG-13) -- A year past its original planned

previously unknown tales of Romanoff ’s early years before

she was an Avenger. Trained killers always seem to have

unfinished business with their past, and such is the plot

here. The Black Widow says she’s done running, but

thankfully she’s still up for lots of plane jumping, kickfighting

and motorcycle trick-racing. (Disney+, theaters)

“Dirty John Season 2” -- The second installment in the

Betty Broderick in a dramatization

of actual events from 1989. In the role of John

devoted young newlywed, and later as the conniving

cheater. The eight-episodes wind through the Brodericks’

16 years of marriage and the slow unraveling of Betty’s sanity

as John’s professional success leads him to stray and

eventually file for divorce. Without John, Betty is a

nobody, and that simply won’t do for this San Diego trophy

wife. As a bonus, the display of 1980s fashion and status

symbols is an impeccably accurate guilty pleasure.

this summer to include Covid-19 essential workers in their

Giving Back Program, which offers pay-what-you-like tickets to

people who serve the community and their families. EMS workers,

firefighters, police, veterans and active-duty military personnel, farmers,

student graduates of the Refuse to Use Program, Habitat for Humanity

homeowners and volunteers, Living Proof Mentees and Mentors,

members of the special needs community and their caregivers,

and Covid-19 essential workers may all request up to four discounted

tickets per household.

“Dorset Theatre Festival is committed to the ongoing work and

practice of making our theatre a place that celebrates differences in

our community,” said Dina Janis, Dorset’s artistic director. “Though

we have offered the Giving Back program for years, people often

don’t realize they qualify, or that their families can join in on the fun

as well,” Janis said.

The Festival is also excited to launch its new Community Inclusion

Partnership Program, which offers a complimentary Friends &

Neighbors corporate sponsorship to BIPOC, AAPI, and LGBTQIA

business owners, underrepresented and historically excluded community

groups, cultural affinity groups, tribes, tribal organizations,

and funds, civil rights and social justice organizations, and cultural

or community centers. In addition to logo placement on the Festival’s

website, participating partners will also receive a special discount

code to share with members of their communities. An application is

available online.

“The Festival has been able to expand the list of eligible groups

thanks to an impactful multi-year grant from the Rodgers Family

Foundation, and support from business partners in our community like

the Vermont Country Store and Southwestern Vermont Health Care,

whose sponsorships benefit the Giving Back Program directly,” said

Dina Janis.

This year the Festival is also offering a buy-one-get-one ticket offer

for regional educators, as well as a new ticket lottery for every 2021


“Teachers can buy a ticket to the show and bring a friend for half

price. After a year on Zoom, we could all use some fresh air – especially

our teachers,” Janis said.

To enter the 2021 ticket lottery, visit Dorset Theatre Festival’s website

to enter for the chance to purchase $15 tickets. Entries must be

received the day prior to the desired performance.

For more information about how to take advantage of these community

building programs, and to reserve tickets for the 2021 outdoor

season at Southern Vermont Arts Center, please visit

About Dorset Theatre Festival

Dorset Theatre Festival’s mission is to create bold, innovative, and

authentic theatre that engages a diverse, multi-generational community,

and economically broad region: enlightening, entertaining, and

inspiring our audience through the celebration of great plays. We aim

to redefine the landscape of theatre by presenting thought-provoking

productions drawn from the new and classic canon, as well as through

the development of new work, new audiences, and new artists for the

future of American theater. We produce theatre that matters.

Concepts Kakuro

Best described as a number

crossword, the task in

Kakuro is to fill all of the

empty square, using numbers

1 to 9, so the sum of

each horizontal lock equals

the number to its left, and

the sum of each vertical

block equals the number

on its top. No number may

be used in the same block

more than once.

Learning what makes cats tick and their particular needs

can help prospective pet parents decide if cats are right for

them. It also helps to identify feline behaviors that can be

problematic or may require correction when cats come into

a home.

The following are some facts about cats, courtesy of MSN,

Fact Retriever and Purina food company.

• Food-motivated cats likely will not be tempted by sweet

treats. Stick to savory options. Unlike dogs, cats do not have

taste receptors for sweet avors

• Lions may be kings of the jungle, but domesticated cats

are kings among pets. They often beat out dogs as the most

popular pet in North America.

• Cats are very good at hearing sounds and their eyesight is

exceptional as well. Cats have 32 ear muscles that allow for

“directional hearing.” Comparatively, humans only have six

ear muscles. Cats also can rotate their ears 180 degrees.

evelopmentally speaking, the first year of a cats life is

eual to the first years of a humans fter its second year,

a cat is the equivalent of 25 in human years.

• Domesticated cats can spend about 70 percent of the day

sleeping. Another 15 percent is spent grooming.

• Cats do not have nine lives. However, they have something

called a righting ree” he eyes and balance organs

Vermont’s Migratory Game Bird Hunting Seasons Are Announced

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has announced

the 2021-2022 migratory game bird hunting season dates and

bag limits.

A printable copy of the Migratory Bird Syllabus can be

downloaded from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s

website ( under “Hunt” –

“Waterfowl.” A printed version also will be available from

license agents and post offices by late August.

A statewide Vermont open hunting season for resident

Canada geese will occur September 1-25. The daily bag limit

is five Canada geese in the Connecticut River Zone and eight

in the rest of the state during this September season. The

purpose of the September season is to help control Vermont’s

resident Canada goose population prior to the arrival of

Canada geese migrating south from Canada.

A second Canada goose hunting season for resident and

migrant geese will be held October 13-November 11 in the

Lake Champlain and Interior Zones with a daily bag limit of

one Canada goose in the Lake Champlain Zone and Interior

Vermont Zone.

In the Connecticut River Zone, the second Canada goose

season will be October 5-November 7 and November

24-December 19 with a daily bag limit of two Canada geese.

Duck season this fall opens on October 13 in the Lake

Champlain and Interior Vermont Zones and on October 5 in

in the inner ear tell cats where they are in space so they can

land on their feet. This is what helps them survive falls —

some from more than 32 stories high.

• The meow sound is not something cats innately produce

to interact with other cats. Rather, cats began to meow to

communicate with humans.

payed and neutered cats live longer than non-fied cats,

likely because they do not get lost or injured trying to mate.

• Declawing cats is illegal in at least 22 countries, but

not the United States. Cats scratch at items, so they’ll need

scratching posts and other outlets for this behavior.

• Cats will rub against people not only to be affectionate

but also to mark out territory with scent glands around their


the Connecticut River Zone. The Lake Champlain Zone has

a split season (October 13-17 and October 30-December 23).

The Interior Vermont Zone has a straight season (October

13-December 11). The Connecticut River Zone has a split

season (October 5-November 7 and November 24-December


Scaup daily bag limits are a hybrid season this year. The

first twenty days of the Lake Champlain (October 13-17 &

October 30-November 13) and Interior (October 13-November

1) zones allow the harvest of two scaup daily. The remainder

of the season you are allowed only one scaup daily. Within

the Connecticut River Zone, you are allowed only one scaup

daily for the entire season.

Vermont’s youth waterfowl hunting weekend will be

September 25 and 26. Resident and nonresident hunters 17

years of age or younger on those dates may hunt ducks and

geese within the Lake Champlain and Interior Vermont Zones

during this weekend while accompanied by an adult 18 or

older. In the Connecticut River Zone, youth must be 15 years

of age or younger on those dates. Both adult and youth must

have Vermont hunting licenses. The adult may not hunt or

carry a firearm. Youth ages 16 and 17 must have a Vermont

Migratory Waterfowl tag and federal duck stamp.

Woodcock hunting season is September 25- November 8

statewide with a three-bird bag limit.

• Cat litters can be between one and nine kittens, so it is

important to neuter them to prevent overpopulation.

ats can often ump up to five times as high as their own


• Even though cats have been depicted as drinking milk,

dairy can give them an upset stomach and gas. Provide water


• Research shows that cats know and recognize their

names, but often they do not come when called. This is a

dismissive move and not because cats do not recognize when

they’re being called.

Cats make for fascinating pets and are loved by people for

myriad reasons.

In addition to a hunting license, a waterfowl hunter 16 or

older must carry a current federal duck stamp and Vermont

Migratory Waterfowl tag to hunt waterfowl in Vermont.

Federal stamps are sold at post offices, federal refuges, or

online at

duck-stamp/e-stamp.php. State Migratory Waterfowl tags are

available on Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s website

and from license agents. The hunter must sign the federal

duck stamp.

All migratory game bird (woodcock, ducks and geese)

hunters must also be registered with the Harvest Information

Program (H.I.P.) in each state they hunt. You can register on

Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s website or call tollfree

1-877-306-7091. After providing some basic information,

you will receive your annual H.I.P. registration number,

which is then recorded on your hunting license.

The hunting season dates, bag limits and related regulations

for all migratory birds are set annually within a framework

established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and

in coordination with New York and New Hampshire.

Waterfowl season dates and bag limits are set in three

zones: Lake Champlain, Interior Vermont, and Connecticut

River. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department sets

the season dates and bag limits for the Connecticut River

Pelkey Comes Out on Top of Wild Midseason Championship

Graniteville’s Christopher Pelkey had the

car, the skill, and the luck to earn victory in

the Times Argus Midseason Championships

at Barre’s Thunder Road on Thursday, July

22. Pelkey took the lead from Wolcott’s

Marcel J. Gravel just before halfway in the

wild 75-lap main event to pick up his second

Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Model win of the


The first-place trophy was worth double

points and double prize money thanks to

FloRacing. It also came on a night where

championship leaders Jason Corliss and

Trampas Demers were felled by on-track carnage,

allowing Pelkey to unofficially grab the

point lead under a full moon.

Front row starters Phil Scott and Gravel

went back and forth in the early laps before

Gravel finally cleared him with seven complete.

The pot that was simmering boiled over

six laps later when Grenier looked inside

Scott for second on the backstretch. Grenier

had to check up entering turn three, and with

the field inches apart, things stacked up

quickly. Stephen Donahue eventually went

around entering turn four, and with nowhere

to go, Corliss, Demers, and Kyle Pembroke

all piled in.

All three were eventually able to make it

back for the restart following a long caution

period for water clean-up. But the craziness

was far from over. First, Scott had trouble on

the restart and went backwards through the

field. Then one lap after going green, Chris

Roberts lost a right-front tire entering turn

one and pounded the barriers. At that point,

Corliss was forced to drop out of the event

due to ongoing complications from the previous

crash, while Demers made multiple pit

road trips to try and repair his machine.

When the green flag flew again, Chip

Grenier put his bumper out front to lead lap

15 before Gravel took the top spot back one

lap later. Tyler Cahoon then went below

Grenier for second, only for Grenier to lose

control entering turn three. Eric Chase ended

up climbing the driver’s door on Grenier’s car

while Darrell Morin caught a late piece, forcing

all three out of the event and completing

the trilogy of carnage.

Cahoon was able to lead one lap following

the restart before Gravel swiped it back.

Pelkey then slid under Cahoon for second and

spent the next 15 laps hounding Gravel. He

finally made his move on the outside, snatching

the lead with 36 laps complete. Gravel

hung to Pelkey’s bumper for a while, but with

the race going green the final 59 laps, Pelkey’s

long-run power paid off for his second victory

in three weeks.

Gravel’s second-place finish was still

impressive given the circumstances. The

youngster had hit the wall during practice

after a right front failure. With his car unfixable

at the track, Gravel borrowed a ride from

Scott Coburn to earn his third podium finish

of the year.

Professional RallyCross racer Connor

Martell got the upper hand in a paint-swapping

battle with Bobby Therrien for the third

spot, which was his best at Thunder Road.

Therrien, Cahoon, Brendan Moodie, Brandon

Lanphear, Scott Dragon, Demers, and

Matthew Smith were fourth through 10th.

Hometown racer Cameron Ouellette scored

a popular victory in the 50-lap feature for the

Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers.

Ouellette spent the first 30 laps stalking polesitter

Keegan Lamson with Mike Billado and

Kelsea Woodard in tow. As they plotted

moves, son-father duo Stephen and Michael

Martin of Craftsbury Common picked their

way through the pack.

Ouellette put the nose under Lamson with

30 complete just as Colin Cornell spun in turn

two to bring out the caution flag. The yellow

negated the pass and put the field doublewide

for a restart. Then Ouellette got the

jump only for a car to dump fluid entering

turn one, drawing another caution and again

frustrating Ouellette’s bid.

The third time was the charm, though, as

Ouellette got the break on the second restart

attempt. The field then jumbled up as Lamson

slowed with a flat right rear tire, allowing the

Martins to jump to second and third. Stephen

kept the pressure on Ouellette for the rest of

the event but could not get around him. It was

Ouellette’s first victory since returning to

Thunder Road racing in 2020 following a

kidney transplant.

Stephen Martin finished second with Mike

Martin, who entered the night as the point

leader, holding off Milton’s Sam Caron for

third. Billado, Woodard, Derrick Calkins,

Jaden Perry, Bryan Wall Jr., and Jason Pelkey

rounded out the top-10.

Waterford’s Dean Switser Jr. picked a great

time for his first win of the year by capturing

the 35-lap RK Miles Street Stock feature.

Switser slashed his way from ninth on the

grid to move into second following a lap-18

caution for a Jamie Davis spin. He then set

his sights on leader Derek “Zeke” Farnham,

who was trying to turn around a dismal season

to date.

Switser worked the outside line multiple

times to no avail. But with nine laps to go, he

switched things up and was able to get inside

Farnham to grab the lead. No one could catch

Switser from there as he rolled to the doublepoint


South Royalton’s Farnham tied his career

best with a second-place finish. Berlin’s

Kyler Davis inherited the third spot after

Trevor Jaques was disqualified for too much

left side weight. Point leader Tommy

“Thunder” Smith, Todd Raymo, Jeffrey

Martin, Justin Blakely, Kaiden Fisher, Josh

Lovely, and Kasey Collins completed the top-


Milton’s Bert Duffy had just enough to

grab his first career Burnett Scrap Metals

Road Warrior victory. Duffy started on the

pole for the 25-lap feature and ran away early.

After a trio of mid-race crashes, he again put

the pedal down and took off.

However, Duffy’s car began showing

smoke in the closing laps. At the same time,

Graniteville’s Frank Putney — who had been

last on the track after an opening-lap scuffle

— and Williamstown’s Nate “Tater” Brien

were chasing him down. Putney caught Duffy

first and got alongside his passenger door on
