Elaine Toohey to Lead Working Communities

Challenge – Greater Barre Area as Project Director

Green Mountain

United Way, in collaboration

with the

W o r k i n g


Challenge – Greater

Barre Area leadership

team, is pleased

to announce that

Elaine (Eli) Toohey

has joined the organization’s

work as

Project Director for

the Working

Communities Challenge – Greater Barre

Area. She will lead the collaborative work of

partners in Central Vermont as they “work to

increase the economic mobility and overall

well-being for Greater Barre Area head-ofhousehold

women experiencing financial

instability, through aligned coordination of

employment support. The project has the ultimate

goal of 15% fewer single moms living

below the federal poverty level in 2030 as

opposed to their 2020 counterparts”. The

Working Communities Challenge – Greater

Barre Area is a grant-funded project that

came out of a collaborative process led by the

Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and local

philanthropic partners including the Vermont

Community Foundation, National Life Group

Foundation, and others. Organizational partners

leading the Working Communities

Challenge – Greater Barre Area include:

Green Mountain United Way (lead agency)

City of Barre

Capstone Community Action

Family Center of Washington County

Central VT Home Health and Hospice

Central VT Medical Center

Central Vermont Adult Basic Education

Central VT Regional Planning

Vermont Agency of Transportation

Community College of Vermont

Eli has held several roles in Central

Vermont including her work as Executive

Director of Another Way, a peer-led mental

health center serving individuals in Central

Vermont, and comes to this role directly

from work with Capstone Community

Action doing financial coaching and economic

stability work with women receiving

Reach Up benefits in Central Vermont. Eli is

currently seeking a certificate in Community

Resilience and Planning at UVM and intends

to use that knowledge to further the work

with this project.

Eli was born in Barre and grew up in

Central Vermont. She sees her experience

growing up in this community as integral to

her success in this role. “Growing up in the

area, I experienced Barre when it was thriving,

and have watched the community go

through a lot of change over the years. This

change in the physical, economic and social

infrastructures has given way to struggles for

many of our community members, particularly

single women. I have shared experiences

with many of the core participants we serve

through the WCC project. Whether it is those

day-to-day struggles with childcare or the

larger struggles as a woman in the workforce,

I have lived experience of what these women

are experiencing and welcome the opportunity

to make changes that will benefit them

and our community. Regardless of their struggles,

employment and economic stability

offer the potential to create opportunities for

these participants,” offered Toohey, who lives

in Montpelier with her family.

“What also drives me is the opportunity to

work with this unique group of community

partners, workers, and employers to change

the systems and systematic barriers that make

it difficult for women, and mothers in particular,

to get and keep good, steady jobs with

opportunities for advancement. This project

makes so much lasting change possible

because we are not just focusing on individuals.

We are focusing on how to change systems,

policies, and cultures that have traditionally

put women at a disadvantage,”

Toohey continued.

The Working Communities Challenge –

Greater Barre Area uses the United Way’s

Working Bridges program as the framework

with Green Mountain United Way serving as

the backbone organization. Working Bridges

is a well established program bringing human

services support to workers at their workplace

and includes interventions like one-on-one

resource coordination and financial coaching,

income-advance loans, educational opportunities,

and volunteer income tax assistance

(VITA). The WCC-Greater Barre Area will

add other elements and advance the Working

Bridges model in order to meet the specific

needs of the clients they work with. Employer

partners for the WCC-Greater Barre Area

project include Central Vermont Medical

Center, Central Vermont Home Health and

Hospice, and other Working Bridges sites.

Additional employers will be included

throughout the development of the program.

“Eli’s unique life and work experience

makes her a wonderful fit for this role. We are

excited to have her leadership at the helm of

this initiative and to have someone who

knows the Barre community and is ready to

work toward lasting changes for women in

our workforce. This project builds on the

foundation that has already been established

by the Working Bridges program and our

employer partners. I am personally excited

to see how Eli’s leadership on this project

can transform the Working Bridges foundation

and bring it to the next level by offering

opportunities specific to women and generations

that follow,” said Tawnya Kristen,

Executive Director at Green Mountain

United Way.

Assistance for Timber

Harvesters & Haulers

If you’re a business that harvests or hauls timber and you

were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, you

may be eligible to receive relief payments from a newly established

program from the SDA. The Pandemic Assistance for

Timber Harvesters and Haulers PATHH program provides

financial assistance based on a business’s gross revenue comparisons

between 2019 and 2020.

To calculate relief payments, the SDA will subtract a

business’s 2020 gross revenue from their 2019 gross revenue

and multiply that figure by 0.8. $200 million has been allocated

to this program. Depending on demand, eligible applicants

may receive up to $125,000. To be eligible, businesses

must have derived 50 of their gross revenue from harvesting

or hauling timber and must have experienced as least a 10

loss in gross revenue due to the pandemic.

Applications are being accepted now through October 15,

2021 and can be submitted to your local SDA Service center

via mail, fax, hand delivery or electronic means.

VSAC’s Newest Grant Program Offers

Two Years of Free CCV Tuition

A new grant program will offer eligible

Vermonters the chance to obtain a college degree

tuition free. Yes, really.

The grant, called 802Opportunity, pays for

up to two years of free tuition to the Community

College of Vermont. Any Vermonter with

a family Adjusted Gross Income of less than

$50,000 per year can qualify.

Students can choose from 33 flexible programs

in highly sought-after career fields.

Here in Vermont, most high-demand and

high-wage jobs require college or training.

An associate degree or certificate from CCV

can provide the skills and credentials students

need to pursue a higher paying job or advance

in their professions. The program is open to

new or returning students of any age, starting

in the fall of 2021 and continuing for two

years. This means that if someone starts in the

fall of 2021, they could attain a two-year associate

degree tuition-free.

“We know that education is the greatest

equalizer when it comes to economic opportunity,”

said Scott Giles, President and CEO of

the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation.

“Education beyond high school is required

for Vermont’s high-demand, high-wage jobs

– the jobs that Vermonters want, and the jobs

that our employers need to fill. This will be

a game changer for many traditional age students

and working adult students and one of

the most important investments in higher education

to come out of the pandemic.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, just

over 40% of Vermont households reported incomes

of $50,000 or less in 2018, the latest

year for which data are available.

“The Vermont State Colleges System is

deeply committed to reaching all Vermonters

with an education opportunity that works

for them at a price that they can afford,” said

Vermont State College Chancellor, Sophie

Zdatny. “Investments like 802Opportunity

are investments in our state workforce, our

local businesses, and the Vermont economy.

Imagine the possibilities for Vermonters and

statewide economic development when Vermonters

can upskill with a credential or degree

thanks to this program. I am grateful to

our state leaders and our partners at VSAC for

their vision in making this program possible.”

“Too many Vermonters choose not to pursue

a college education because of cost,”

said CCV President Joyce Judy. “With this

program, we are pleased to be able to say to

Vermonters: this is your chance to invest in

yourself, to gain knowledge and skills that

can help you build a better future, without

worrying about a high price tag or a huge

amount of debt.”

The Community College of Vermont offers

associate programs leading to Associate of

Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.)

degrees. CCV also offers several certificate

programs that provide necessary knowledge

for employment, or a foundation for further

study. With CCV’s transfer agreements

within the Vermont State College System and

schools such as UVM, students can apply

their associate-program credits toward bachelor’s


802Opportunity, in combination with state

and federal grant aid, covers tuition for all

credits in a degree program of the student’s

choice, as well as the $100 administrative fee.

The grant does not cover lab and studio fees,

books, or other supplies.

Funding for 802Opportunity was approved

by the Vermont Legislature and Governor

Scott earlier this year. That approval meant

that Vermont joined 14 other states that have

made community college tuition-free.

1 in 3 Vermonters Believe in the Perceived

Health Benefits of Alcohol, Reveals Survey

The old saying goes ‘an apple a day keeps

the doctor away,’ but what about when it

comes to alcohol instead of apples? You may

have heard that a daily glass of red wine could

make you live longer or that a couple drinks

per day can reduce your risk of stroke.

Although a recent study by the University of

Oxford found that there is no safe level of

alcohol consumption for brain health, some

have convinced themselves of the perceived

health benefits of drinking., a leading provider of resources

relating to addiction and recovery, conducted

a survey of 3,000 people and found

that over 1 in 3 Vermonters (38%) believe in

the perceived health benefits of alcohol – this

compares to a national average of 39%.

The survey also asked respondents what

they believed to be the main benefits of alcohol

consumption. Forty-six percent thought

that it reduces an individual’s risk of developing

cardiovascular disease and 31% believed

it can increase life expectancy. An additional

15% were under the impression that it prevents

you from catching a common cold, and

• • •

8% believed it lowers the risk of diabetes.

Although the niversity of Oxford study

found that increased consumption of alcohol

correlated with a decreased volume of information-processing

gray matter, more than a

third of respondents (39%) said they would

continue to drink alcohol, even though proven

to be damaging to the brain.

In fact, more than half (58%) admit they

don’t even take notice of studies linking alcohol

consumption to health problems. Perhaps

ignorance is bliss?

Thirty-eight percent also stated that they

would still continue to drink if trials showed

that alcohol reduces life expectancy by five


Lastly, it’s well known that leading an

unhealthy lifestyle, such as poor diet, excessive

drinking and lack of exercise can have

negative health consequences. While each of

these factors contributes in its own way to a

lack of good health, more than half (62%) of

respondents believed eating junk food has

worse health implications than consuming

The Various Advantages to Shopping Locally

esidents of a given town or city are often encouraged to

support local businesses by looking to these firms to fill their

needs. Small businesses are not just integral parts of communities,

employing millions across the country, they also are

operations that fund the very communities they service.

Efforts to promote shopping local appear to be working.

According to the Commonwealth Financial roup, over the

last several years there has been a shift in consumer purchasing

behavior marked by a preference among consumers to

support locally owned shops and stores over big-box retailers

and even online shopping.

ore money stays in the community According to the

American Independent Business Alliance, for every $100

spent at a local business, $68 remains in the community. Conversely,

only 43 percent of every $100 spent at a chain retailer

stays in the community.

Economies says local businesses create the majority of economic

growth. They employ millions of Americans by creating

roughly two-thirds of private sector jobs. Local business

owners also tend to hire people who represent the demographics

of the communities where the business is located, which

may include historically underserved populations.

Personalized service A small business owner may be

more inclined to go to great lengths to make customers happy

because the long-term success of the business depends on customers

becoming repeat customers.

• Personal connection: Knowing the people behind a business

facilitates a connection not easily achieved with other

companies. Customers may celebrate when a favorite business

succeeds and look to spread the word about that business

because they feel like they played a positive role in its success.

Gifford’s Dr. Josh White Addresses

Delta Variant

Vermonters should be cautious, but not

worry about the more contagious Delta

Variant. That’s the message from Gifford

Health Care Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Josh

White. Delta is causing a rise in cases

throughout the world, but according to Dr.

White, these COVID-19 variants were


“Viruses mutate, so they can spread better,”

Dr. White said. “Delta seems to reproduce

much faster, which means when a person

coughs or sneezes, there’s a lot more virus in

it so it’s much easier to transmit.”

While the Vermont Department of Health

is reporting a slight increase in new daily

cases (1.8% positive 7-day average), the

state’s high vaccination rate is keeping

patients out of the hospital.

“Vermont’s done a nice job,” Dr. White

said. “The populous responded to the goal set

by the state. We did well and we’re seeing

that reflected in the low number of hospitalizations.

The intent of vaccines is to prevent

unnecessary hospitalization, sickness and

death. Vaccines do that really well, which

means Vermont’s target of 80 percent is a big

deal. It provides us some measure of relative

safety. “

More than 83% of Vermonters 12 years of

age and older have received at least one dose

of a vaccine, but it doesn’t mean they are

completely free from COVID. Vaccinated

people can still get infected.

“The goal was to keep you out of the hospital,”

Dr. White said. “Vaccinated people

tend to be a lot less sick.”

When it comes to vaccinations, booster

shots will likely be in our future. As mutations

occur, the vaccinations could become

Job Training Well Done

The Vermont Foodbank’s Community

applications for student enrollment in its

successful culinary job training program starting

people facing hunger at local food shelves

The program has a deep and lasting impact

for participants and the community, with

graduates reporting increased skills and confidence

to get the jobs they want, as well as

a sense of connection to their communities.

We provide a COVID-safe environment with

less effective, but the data is unclear if boosters

needed right now.

“It’s demonstrated that a booster shot can

give a person higher antibody levels, but what

we want to see is people staying out of the

hospital and dying unnecessarily,” Dr. White

said. “If it shows boosters can prevent that,

then yes that will be coming. As the virus

continues to mutate, when do we cross that

line? At this point, I don’t know.”

One thing Dr. White does believe is

COVID and its variants will be a part of our


“Globally speaking, we missed the opportunity

to put a lid on COVID. It will become

endemic,” Dr. White said. “It’s going to be a

new public health challenge, meaning there

will be some level of masking and protection.”

A vaccine for younger children should be

coming soon from Pfizer, possibly in time for

the start of school this fall.

“If the bulk of school age children are vaccinated,

there shouldn’t be much of an issue,”

Dr. White said. “In general children are at

lower risk. It’s normal for parents to worry.

It’s on the medical community to address

those concerns.”

But as Dr. White reiterates, Vermonters

have put themselves in a good place by taking

precautions and getting vaccinated.

“Could that change in the future? Yes, it

could and we’ll have to respond to it. But

we’ve demonstrated that we can and will do

The Great Vermont Corn Maze

After the serious realities of 2020 and

the uncertainty of the upcoming 2021

winter due to Covid variants, the reat

Vermont Corn aze in North Danville,

VT decided this summer needed some

fantasy and fun. To celebrate their 23rd

season of cornfusion” ike and Dayna

Boudreau created the image of a fire

breathing dragon flying through their

massive 24 acre cornfield. Even though

their amazing attraction is outdoors on

their family farm, the Boudreau’s say

they have had to make changes and adapt

how they operate to maintain the safest

possible environment during the Covid


Each year, healthy adult couples who

challenge this complex living sculpture

typically take 2-3 plus hours to solve

their way out of the miles of corn lined trails. But there is

an Emergency Exit which can be accessed at several points

within the maze and maze staff available to provide clues as

needed. There is also a smaller Scenic aze which is roughly

a 40 minute walk and allows mazers a taste of the corn maze

while getting to see the unique things within the cornfield but

without the hours of hiking required for the Big aze.

Every year ike and Dayna create a brand new picture in

their cornfield and design a brand new maze within that picture.

Along with the new theme there are also new surprises

each year. This year, while mazers attempt to solve the massive

maze, they will also be searching for special ourney

Stones” stored in special containers. Anyone who solves the

mazes and collects all of the ourney Stones” will be able to

trade them in for a special reward.

Like many businesses, the reat Vermont Corn aze has

had to adapt to the new reality of Covid. Some changes include

that tickets are only sold online from

and tickets are limited each day. Other changes

that maze visitors can expect to find are in the PETENDIN

Play Area, which is a reward for young mazers after they solve

or exit the mazes. It gives young mazers a chance to run, play

and exercise their imaginations. First, PETENDIN will not

visitor numbers and improve social distancing. Second, the

underground opher Tunnels, which kids have enjoyed for the

past 18 years, have been moved outdoors to allow for more air

flow and fresh air. The third change is the addition of a 60’ hay

castle, complete with climbing nets. While the Hay Castle is in

a barn to keep the hay dry, there are two large barn doors that

allow for plenty of air flow.

As of opening day this year, maze visitors will be encouraged

to maintain a respectful distance from people not in their

group and masks will be recommended in any area when near

people not part of your group. Non-vaccinated people should,

of course, wear a mask. But these rules regarding Covid

may change day to day depending on recommendations from

state and federal healthcare professional.” aze aster, ike

explains, We were able to open in 2020 while Covid was

surging because we followed state and federal safety recommendations

as well as plain common sense needed during a

pandemic and we had zero issues related to Covid. So, we are

addition to the displays, demonstrations are planned throughout

the day of carving styles and methods, including an opportunity

for kids of all ages to try their hand at soap carving.

This is a good opportunity to learn how woodcarvers, using

simple hand tools, transform a block of wood into a piece of

art. As always, the show is free and everyone is encouraged

to attend.

Barre Art Splash - Artist Of The Week

Linda Kiniry with Bernice

I grew up in Vermont and only start painting as an adult. I enjoy

painting with multiple mediums. When I am working, I totally lose

time and myself in the creative process. Bernadette Eddy was

my earliest mentor. She taught me Eglomise or Reverse Glass

Painting and Faberge’ styled eggs. Later I took many workshops

and classes at galleries, art organizations and attended Fletcher

Farm School for the Arts and Crafts.

I enjoy working with watercolor, acrylic, oils and pastels. Most

of my present work is in pastels and oils. I work with my husband

in our Arts and Carving business, decorating Santas that are

carved from cypress trees. I enjoy the challenge of working with

the shapes that mother nature has given us.

I am a member of the Paletteers, Vermont Hand Crafters, Vermont

Pastel Society, SPA and the Wood Art gallery. I served twice

as president and many years on the board of the Paletteers, six

years on the Vermont Hand Crafters board and a board member

at large for the Vermont Pastel Society.

My work has been shown in The Chandler, The Chaffee Art gallery,

The Governor’s Offi ce, The Bryant Art Gallery, Studio Place

Arts, T.W. Wood Gallery and many years at the Barre Heritage

Festival. I have been fortunate to have my work recognized and

receive awards in many of these shows. 62 Cassie Street, Barre,

Camp Meade Announces Upcoming Girls Rock Vermont Camp

Girls Rock Vermont, a music

education camp for girls

and gender non-conforming

youth, gets underway at

Camp Meade in Middlesex

on August 9, running through

August 13 and culminating

in a live performance by the

newly minted bands.

“Rock and roll for young

girls is fantastic. The music

world is a male world and this

is the opposite of that,” said

camp director Linda Bassick.

Bassick explained that Girls

Rock Vermont was started in

2011 as part of the Riot Grrrl

movement that started in the

Seattle area. Girls Rock Vermont

is associated with more

than 200 similar non-profit

camps around the world.

“The Riot Grrrl movement

was started by women in the

band Bikini Kill who noticed

women were getting harassed

at their shows so they started moving women to the front and

then it developed into a movement about empowering women

and girls,” she said.

During the five days of camp, participants are grouped with

peers according to their ages (camp is for 8-18 year olds).

They may or may not have any experience playing an instrument

when they start, but they will by the end of the week

when all five of the bands showcase their week’s learning by

performing the songs they have written and rehearsed.

“We offer guitar, bass, drums, electric ukulele and keyboards

and everybody sings. They come in the first day and

we give them instruction and put them in a band. They have to

come up with a band name and write a song that they play at

our showcase on Friday. They go from not knowing anything

about this, not knowing about the electronic equipment and

they get a crash course in handling the gear,” Bassick said.

Girls Rock Vermont teaches kids a few chords but does not

focus on teaching them to read music, which Bassick said can

be a hindrance for people to get into music.

But the camp offers more than just music. Bassick and her

volunteer staff also offer workshops on women in media, consent

and boundaries and feminism. The program focuses on

building self-esteem and encouraging self-expression as well.

“There’s a lot of things that happen to girls along the way

that makes them think being in a rock band is not for them.

It is for them. We’re trying to combat the whole patriarchal

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont Proudly

Supports the Listen Up! Project Tour

As a proud underwriter of the Listen Up! Project, Blue

Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (Blue Cross) is encouraging

teens and anyone who has a young adult in their life to

attend a show near them. This original touring musical was

inspired, written, scored, and performed by Vermont teens.

The production is the result of feedback from 913 Vermont

youth collected through workshops, in-depth interviews, conferences,

and special events statewide.

“Being a teenager is a challenge during the best of times,

but during the pandemic we have seen the number of crises

among youth spike to alarming levels,” says Don George,

President and CEO of Blue Cross. “The Listen Up! Project

offers a space for teens to speak openly and honestly about the

challenges they face and be validated by their peers and their


Themes that emerged from the project include dealing with

trauma, mental health issues and anxiety; coping with life’s

ups and downs with grit and resilience; activism; assets that

youth carry with them such as their collective voice; and

diversity from multiple perspectives, including racial, ethnic,

sex- and gender-based diversity, alongside shared truths

despite their differences. The stories, hopes, challenges and

dreams these teens have shared form the basis of the play’s

script and its original music, all of which is being written and

performed by Vermont teens and will be touring across the

state in early August.

“When we approach wellness from a whole-person perspective,

our teens are better supported, and our entire community

is healthier,” says Dr. Josh Plavin, a primary care

Internal Medicine and Pediatrics physician, and the Chief

Medical Officer at Blue Cross. “When people know that they

are not alone in what they are facing, and when parents feel

like they have the tools to support their teens, they can combat

isolation, depression, and suicide.”

Parents and community members are encouraged to attend

Vermont Folklife Center Offers Ethnography and Community

Online Public Discussion Series this Summer

Vermont Folklife Center will host a series of four online

presentations, in conjunction with their Summer Institute programming,

August 2-13, 2021. These virtual events are free

and open to the public. Through guided discussions with local

educators, artists, and VFC staff, each session will offer a different

perspective on how ethnography, an approach and set

of methods for understanding and representing human experience,

can inform and strengthen community-based inquiry

and knowledge creation. Visit for a full

schedule and description and how to register.

VFC Associate Director and Archivist Andy Kolovos will

provide an inside view of the Folklife Center’s Archive on

Friday, August 6 (3-4 p.m.). Virtual Tour of the VFC Archives

will showcase how oral history and ethnographic collections

society that is telling them they’re not allowed to do things.

They’re often told to sit down and be quiet and we’re telling

them to be loud,” said Bassick who has led the camp since


She said that the biggest age group of kids who attend the

camp are 11-12 year olds.

“This is a really great age because it’s when they get their

periods and first feel less than in the world and learn to think

of themselves as second class citizens. We’re empowering

them and showing them that they can do anything,” she said.

Bassick is an educator and a music educator who has been

working with young children and babies since the 1980’s. She

has lived in Vermont for over 30 years, having ended up here

after taking a group of adolescents from the Boston area hiking

on the Long Trail.

And – no surprise – she’s also a musician who plays the

guitar, trombone, flute and some piano as well. She plays with

Mellow Yellow, a 60’s tribute band and is also part of the

Lamson Quarry project next summer which will have a dance

troupe dancing on floating stages in the quarry, accompanied

by musicians. She is also working on a kid’s album as well as

an animated film for kids.

While the camp is full for this year, the Friday night showcase

is a great way to see its results. That takes place on August

13 at 5:30 p.m. The website for the camp is

the Listen Up! tour with their teenagers. They will have

access to education and tools at each event that will build the

confidence to have valuable conversations when teens are


Nine live events will be held across Vermont from August

4 - August 15. Details about the events can be found at https://

In October, the show will be available to

schools and parents to download.

“Sometimes we look at our kids and wonder how they grew

into these full-size humans so quickly,” says Megan Peek,

Director of Community Relations and Health Promotion at

Blue Cross. “So often parents feel disconnected from their

teenagers or they feel like they are simply speaking a different

language. The bottom line is that we all need to let teens know

‘We hear you and we’re listening. You’re okay the way you

are. Use your voice, share your experience and be your

authentic self.’”

Blue Cross offers Case Management services to support

both parents and teens when they simply don’t know where to

go for help. The Case Management team is available for their

members who need health resources, support, and care. Blue

Cross is committed to meeting the needs of underserved communities

and those who are struggling silently.

Godot Comes to Calais

Waiting for the return of live theater? “Waiting for Godot”

opens a two-week run on August 12th at the Unadilla Theater

in Calais, running Thursday through Sunday. Show times are

7:30 on the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 19th, 20th, 21st and a matinee

at 2:30 on the 22nd.

From a humble and not very successful beginning at a small

Paris theater, Samuel Beckett’s play has become one of the

most important plays of the twentieth century. A true modern

classic, “Waiting for Godot” is one of the most produced plays

in the world and for good reason. Beckett calls the work, “A

tragic comedy in two acts.”

The two main characters, hobos perhaps, call to mind

at times Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello. At other

times they are poets, players, fighters, and fierce friends. They

are waiting for a character to come who (spoiler alert) never

shows up.

“What do we do now?” asks Vladimir,

“Wait.” replies Estragon.

“Yes, but while waiting.”

Godot never shows up but the strange and enigmatic Pozzo

and Lucky, master and slave, do show up to help fill the

void.” One critic famously said that Beckett has written a play

in which “nothing happens twice.” Another countered, “It is

true that nothing happens twice, but in that nothing there is


This production boasts an extraordinary cast with over a

century of combined professional experience as performers,

actors, and writers.

Jeanne Beckwith of Roxbury directs the play. Jeanne is a

multitalented theater director, playwright and scholar. Her

plays have been staged from coast to coast and as far away

as Dublin, London, and Istanbul. This year, her new play in

process, Sam and Jim in Hell, had a public reading at Lost Nation

Theater in Montpelier on Saint Patrick’s Day. In the play

Samuel Beckett and James Joyce meet on a park bench by the

river Liffey. They might very well be in Hell.

The cast in order of appearance features Matthew Grant

Winston as Estragon. Matthew is a graduate of the renowned

drama school at SUNY Purchase. He is a well-known and

highly sought after local actor with a wide resume on Vermont

stages. Matthew says that he has always wanted to play the

part of Estragon, which was originated by the great Bert Lahr

in the first Broadway production.

Donny Osman plays Vladimir. Donny has a long history in

theater; he founded and directed The Two Penny Circus, which

toured New England and beyond for ten years, and he toured

his own solo shows and taught theater worldwide for more

than twenty years. He played a leadership role in founding Circus

Smirkus, was the Director of the Vermont Governor’s Institute

on the Arts, and was elected to the Vermont Legislature.

Donny says that for the last few years between riding his bike

in the summer and skiing in the winter and watching Netflix

year round, there is not enough time in the day.

The hapless Lucky is played by Tom Murphy, aka Murph,

aka The Physical Comedian. Tom has been touring professionally

for over forty years. His fame is worldwide. He is

an internationally revered performer/clown in the vaudevillian

tradition. He can, juggle fire, ride a ten-foot unicycle and easily

fall off a six-foot stage. But he says that playing Lucky and

memorizing his famous, incredible speech is the hardest thing

he has ever done in theater.

Clarke Jordan plays the sometimes cruel and sometimes piteous

Pozzo. After twenty some seasons at Unadilla playing

mostly kings or clowns he’s enjoying taking on Pozzo who

seems to him a bit of both. His first encounter with odot was

as Estragon in a high school production in 1968. Since then he

has appeared in productions of Krapp’s Last Tape and Happy

Days and is a very big fan of Mr. Beckett’s work.

Making his debut at Unadilla Theater is Case Phinney, as

the Boy. Case is fresh off a successful run of the Hobbit and is

among the youngest known devotees of Samuel Beckett.

At first rejected and misunderstood by critics and audiences,

Waiting for Godot began its rise to mythic status after a famously

successful performance at San Quentin prison. The

inmates saw themselves reflected in the play. Susan Sontag

launched a production in response to the civil war in Sarajevo.

The strength of the play is in its openness and mystery. Waiting

for odot uniquely reflects back to each individual audience

member a glimpse of their own world view. As the character

Pozzo says, “That’s how it is on this bitch of an Earth.”

Red Cross: Emergency Need For Donors

The American Red Cross has an emergency need for lifesaving

blood amid the ongoing severe blood shortage. Blood

and platelet donations continue to be critical to meet hospital

demand and the public is urged to make an appointment to

give now.

The Red Cross has been distributing about 12% more blood

products to hospitals across the U.S. compared to this time

last year. The Red Cross needs to collect more than 1,000

additional blood donations each day to meet the current hospital

Health insights for donors

At a time when health information has never been more

important, the Red Cross is also screening all blood, platelet

and plasma donations from self-identified African American

donors for the sickle cell trait. This additional screening will

provide Black donors with an additional health insight and

help the Red Cross identify compatible blood types more

quickly to help patients with sickle cell disease. Blood transfusion

is an essential treatment for those with sickle cell disease,

and blood donations from individuals of the same race,

ethnicity and blood type have a unique ability to help patients

fighting sickle cell disease.

Donors can expect to receive sickle cell trait screening

results, if applicable, within one to two weeks through the Red

Cross Blood Donor App and the online donor portal at

Blood drive safety

The Red Cross has updated its pandemic safety protocols in

alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Fully

vaccinated individuals, including staff and donors, no longer

need to wear masks or socially distance. Unvaccinated individuals

continue to be required to wear masks and socially

distance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior

to arriving at the drive.

Vermont Receives More Than $7.5 Million for

COVID-19 Testing of the Public

FEMA reimbursed the State of Vermont $7,554,501 it spent

testing Vermonters for nearly five months during the statewide

emergency response to coronavirus.

On behalf of the Vermont Department of Health, the state’s

Agency of Human Services contracted with Cambridge,

Massachusetts-headquartered CIC Health to work closely

with community-based testing sites across the Green Mountain

State. The Department of Health is one of six Agency of

Human Services’ departments.

Under the department’s direction, CIC Health’s work

included overseeing the ordering and shipments of kits, and

collection and analyses of specimens. Supplies included

swabs, tubes and cryogenic boxes used to ship specimens to

labs. Also, CIC Health generated results within 24 hours of

specimens being received at labs. Additionally, it offered

technical assistance.

Other costs covered those who rode in Vermont Public

Transportation Association vehicles to travel to and from testing


FEMA provided funding to Vermont via its Public

Assistance Grant Program. This grant reimbursed the Agency

Biden Administration Provides Vermont $2,067,008 to

Support Rural COVID Response Efforts

As part of the Biden Administration’s ongoing efforts to

respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Department of

Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Health

Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is providing

Vermont with $2,067,008 to support COVID response efforts

in rural areas. While vaccinations continue to increase, this

funding through the Small Rural Hospital Improvement

Program (SHIP) will go to eight small rural hospitals in

Vermont for COVID-19 testing and mitigation, important

parts of the COVID response especially as the country faces

new variants.

“The Biden Administration recognizes the important role

that small rural hospitals have in closing the equity gap and

ensuring that rural Americans can protect themselves and

their communities from COVID-19,” said HHS Secretary

Xavier Becerra. “Today’s funding will help small rural hospitals

continue to serve their communities in this critical role by

expanding their COVID-19 testing capacity and mitigation


State Offices of Rural Health, which work with small rural

hospitals to implement quality and operational improvement

efforts, will receive the funding announced to distribute to

eligible small rural hospitals in their state. Small rural hospitals—those

Vermont Pension Investment Commission (VPIC) Chair

Announces Fiscal Year 2021 Returns

Tom Golonka, Chair of the Vermont Pension Investment

Commission (VPIC), announced an investment return of

24.62% for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021. Assets under

management increased $1.14 billion during the fiscal year, net

of all administrative and benefit payments.

Golonka stated that “the commission is very pleased with

these strong results, which will go a long way in funding pension

liabilities in a manner that minimizes the cost to the

taxpayers of the State of Vermont.”

Chief Investment Officer Eric Henry thanked his team and

consultant RVK for their efforts in underwriting and streamlining

the portfolio to maximize investment returns within

acceptable levels of risk and liquidity. Henry added “we

believe we have a balanced portfolio that is well positioned to

capture upside returns while protecting against economic

Roger and Me (1989)


The need for full employment is the most important issue in

our society. If you don’t have a job that pays a living wage, the

need for more good jobs is the only issue. Michael Moore

understood that.

“Roger and Me” is an explosive success that has grown

more relevant as the decades go on. The film established

documentary filmmaking as the new way for muckraking

journalists to reach a wide audience. And it solidified Michael

Moore as the spiritual leader of the Populist Left.

The film is surprisingly non-partisan. Moore doesn’t take

potshots at Republicans and he doesn’t lionize any Democrats.

If it were released today, “Roger and Me” would be more

likely to be made by Tucker Carlson than Rachael Maddow.

Michael Moore explores the fundamental problems of our

Wall Street-controlled economy. He argues that the purpose of

a company is to provide jobs. He wonders whether a corporation

has value at all if it just sells things but doesn’t employ

any American workers. He exposes the fact that a CEO who

only cares about increasing profit is nothing more than a

Gilded Age Robber Baron.

The Robber Baron in question is General Motors CEO

Roger Smith. His crime was to close 11 GM plants in the late

80s, mostly in Michigan. 30,000 Americans went from solidly

middle-class workers to desperate peasants living in a rusty

post-industrial wasteland.

Michael Moore makes it clear that the plants didn’t close

because GM was broke or because they weren’t selling

Chevys anymore. The plants closed because laborers in

Mexico would work for less.

Moore’s hometown of Flint, Michigan was devastated.

Moore contrasts the empty houses and boarded-up storefronts

with the rich suburbs, where the decadent GM executives

reaped the benefits of globalist profit.

There are so many political and social issues that divide us

today. “Roger and Me” is a forceful reminder that the need for

good jobs is THE issue that underpins all the others.

In my heart, animal rights is more important than the

Treasurer Pearce, a VPIC member, indicated that “this is

good news and will certainly strengthen the three statewide

pension plans, but investment returns alone will not solve the

unfunded pension liabilities. We must continue to look at

structural changes to put the pensions on a sustainable, positive


As of July 1, 2021 VPIC has been restructured so that

Vermont can continue to build on these successes. Chairperson

Golonka thanked the General Assembly for making the necessary

statutory changes to codify recent VPIC governance and

management practice improvements, adding “we expect these

changes to support further improvements to the investment of

pension plan assets.”

Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition Announces New Director

The Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition is pleased to

announce that it has selected David Martins as the Coalition’s

new director. David brings to VAHC over a decade of nonprofit

and ecclesial leadership, with a background in counseling

for those in addiction recovery and a commitment to

working for social and economic justice. His work has been

built around education, advocacy and peer support.

Throughout his professional and life experiences, he has

always had a passion for advocacy, giving voice to the voiceless,

and empowering the underserved and the marginalized.

“I’m so excited about beginning this journey with VAHC,”

David says. “Upholding and celebrating the human dignity

intrinsic to every person necessarily includes affordable and

safe housing. That’s exactly why it’s altogether appropriate

that the coalition brings together organizations and individuals

from so many different backgrounds to work together

towards this common mission. In all my work in advocacy,

strengthening communities, and connecting folks to the supports

they need, stable housing has always been where the

work begins. I’m truly honored to take over this role, and to

work with a team of such dedicated advocates.”

David hails from Providence, R.I. He holds a B.A. in

Philosophy from Providence College and a Masters Degree in

Pastoral Theology from Saint Joseph College in Maine. He

served as the pastor of an inclusive faith community in Rhode

Island for nine years, while concurrently working in the nonprofit

sector. During these years he was heavily involved in

advocacy work, primarily with the LGBTQ+ community, the

recovery community, and individuals experiencing homelessness

and housing insecurity. He was a founding member of

• • •

• • •

“Partners in Service,” an interfaith coalition which partnered

with community agencies to provide material and emotional

support to at-risk youth and their families. He was also

involved with the Religious Coalition for Marriage Equality,

and was an active advocate in the passing of the Good

Samaritan Law in Rhode Island. Most recently, David served

as the Executive Director of Recovery Ministries and Spiritual

Enrichment on Enders Island, in Mystic, Conn.

The VAHC Steering Committee selected David on the basis

of his demonstrated leadership and program management history,

previous coalition-building and community service

work, and his integrity and dedication. He brings to the housing

field a fresh, intersectional, and person-based perspective.

David will serve as the coalition’s first-ever full-time director,

after the departure in March of longtime Coordinator

Erhard Mahnke, who served as VAHC’s consultant and lobbyist

for more than two decades before moving on to join

Senator Bernie Sanders’ staff. The new director position is a

result of the support of VAHC’s members and partners, and

the Steering Committee’s dedication to maintaining and

strengthening the coalition’s future as a voice of advocacy for

affordable housing in Vermont.

“The success of the coalition is a testimony to Erhard

Mahnke’s 24 years of dedication and vision. We look forward

to continuing the legacy of change, empowerment, and advocacy

that Erhard energized,” Steering Committee Chair Cindy

Reid said. “We are thrilled to bring David on to build on these

accomplishments, and to continue to address the critical need

for affordable housing.”

David began his role as VAHC Director Monday, July 26.

economy. Michael Moore addresses that. There’s a brutal

scene where a poor young woman is selling rabbit meat to

keep from being evicted. Moore is right: people aren’t going

to care about the welfare of animals if they don’t have money

or dignity themselves.

In my heart, the prison industrial complex is a more important

problem than the economy. Michael Moore addresses

that. Moore shows us that many laid-off workers turned to

crime and ended up behind bars. And one of the best new

careers available for former GM employees was to become a

prison guard in the new Michigan Correctional Facility. Our

choice is factories or prisons, and our society made the wrong


“Roger and Me” tugged at my heartstrings. In the most

powerful scene, a newly unemployed worker tells the story of

how he was driving home and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice?” by the

Beach Boys came on the radio. Like all people with good

taste, he loves that song. But this time, it left a lump in his

throat. Suddenly, his future was something to dread, not look

forward to.

“Roger and Me” is one of the most influential movies of the

1980s. And it isn’t influential enough. There are still people

who don’t recognize that the need for good jobs is the most

meaningful political and social issue. Politicians pontificate

about pronouns and the mascots of sports franchises and who

is kneeling for the flag. These politicians are oblivious fat cats

at best and dishonest charlatans at worst.

“It’s the economy, stupid,” a wise politician once said. It

has always been the economy.

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) A misunderstanding

tests the temperament of

the sometimes-headstrong

Aries. Instead of blowing

your top, take time for a

pleasant diversion while things cool down.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A workplace problem could

make the divine Bovine see red. But talk it out before you

consider walking out. Some surprising facts emerge that

change your earlier focus.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You face a choice between

ignoring your uneasy feelings about your relationship with

that special person and demanding explanations. A close

friend offers wise counsel.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change you’d been

hoping for carries an unexpected complication. Stay the

course, and things will work themselves out. Be sure to

make time for family and friends.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Aspects favor spending time

with loved ones. On the job, new ideas are generally welcomed.

But some demands for changes could cause problems.

Be ready to defend your choices.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Good news: That

workplace problem is close to being resolved with results

that should please everyone. Take time off to indulge your

love of fun and games.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Most of the time you

are the most unflappable person around. But be ready to

be thrown off-balance in the nicest way when Cupid takes

aim in your direction.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) It’s not often

when someone tries to “sting” the sharp-witted Scorpion.

But it can happen. Continue to be skeptical about anything

that seems too good to be true.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your

strong sense of self-esteem helps you serve as a role model

for someone who needs personal reassurances. Your efforts

pay off in an unexpected way.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Someone

close considers revealing a painful secret. Withhold judgment.

Instead, open your generous heart, and offer dollops

of your love and understanding.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your talents as a

peacemaker are called upon once more as an old problem

re-emerges with new complications. Move cautiously in

order to avoid falling into hidden traps.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your artistic side is

enhanced with the reception given to your new project.

se this success as encouragement toward fulfilling your

larger goals.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural sense of leadership is

combined with a deep sense of responsibility. People trust

you to give them both guidance and understanding.

You Can Never Go Wrong with Wings

Is there anything easier to serve than chicken

wings — especially when you’re not the one

main them his fantastic finer food has

long been an entertaining staple.

To get a better idea of just how much Americans love their

chicken wings, NCC surveyed Americans on their eating

habits last year. Roughly two thirds of Americans (65%) who

eat chicken wings, responded that they like to do so while

watching a major sporting event, such as the Super Bowl.

Half (51%) claim that they believe chicken wings should be

the official food of the Super Bowl, said the NCC.


Your order of wings starts with one major decision: Bonein

wings or boneless wings? Both are great options and it

usually depends on your personal preference, or the preference

of your guests.

To be safe, it’s probably a good bet to get some of each.

Some places will give you a split of half bone-in and half

boneless for your order — which is a great option for a

throughout the nation. The snacks are easy to

eat, reuire little cleanu and wor as a tasty

side for the main dishes.

When you’re in charge of party planning, consider ditching

the pre-made tub found in your grocery cooler. Instead, whip

up a unique and delicious spin on a classic appetizer.

Before committing to a new recipe, check with your guests

to find out if they are vulnerable to any allergens or have

preferences about the foods they eat. If some are watching

what they eat, consider using low-fat or healthier substitutes

for specific ingredients.


The ingredients you choose for buffalo chicken dip can

make or break the dish. First, try to use a mild sauce, as a

blazing hot mixture can alienate those who avoid spicy foods.

Next, make sure to use a high-quality cut of chicken breast

or shred the meat from a rotisserie birds. Combine these

ingredients with cream cheese, sour cream, blue and shredded

cheeses. Complete the dip with light hints of lemon juice,

scallions or green onions to give it a unique flavor profile.

The best part about the meal is that it can be prepared and

served from a slow cooker. Rather than serving with chips,

offer vegetables like carrots or celery and toasted baguette

Sometimes you just want your own sauce. See if your

wings restaurant will let you order the wings without sauce

so you can add your own.

extra kick. ust be sure to let your guests know first.

strawberries. Stick them on the grill for about four minutes

before serving. After a quick flash of heat, offer the individual

packets with graham crackers for dipping.


While it’s not the easiest dish to create, this everything

bagel dip will become a crowd favorite and an expected

staple for future parties. With a food processor, combine

cream cheese, sour cream, scallions, poppy seeds and garlic

powder and your favorite seasonings. Once your ingredients

are thoroughly blended, it should be cooled for at least half

an hour before serving.

The dipping options are limitless, but sometimes include

smoked salmon, tomatoes, cucumber and pumpernickel


I just wanted to THANK YOU for 37

years of Great Food and Great Service.

Vintage is a word we’re seeing everywhere

these days. Vintage fashions, housewares,

fabrics and more are all over the marketplace.

Garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores are

capitalizing on the trend. But what is vintage?

Let’s learn some terms.


According to the dictionary, vintage means a collection

of contemporaneous and similar people or things, or also a

period of origin or manufacture, such as furniture of 1920s

vintage. It also means old, recognized and enduring interest,

importance or quality. In other words, it’s a classic.

In practical terms, what vintage means is that, most importantly,

the item is old. But it’s not so old as to be antique. It

should speak to the era in which it was produced, like bellbottoms

in the 1960s or shoulder pads in the 1980s. It should

also mean that the item labeled as vintage exhibits the best

qualities associated with that era. It should be an accurate

representation of that era. Vintage pieces are often collectible

and are generally more than 20 years old.


We’ve talked about vintage being old but not antique.

Antiques are generally more than 100 years old and also may

have a certain historical value. The difference between vintage

and retro is less defined, but can generally be summed

up in when the item was made and how it’s used. Vintage

items were created in the period, used in the period and

represent the period.

Retro pieces can be new or made later, but mimic the traits

of items from a certain period. They may combine one or

more trends to come up with a certain look. They were not

made or used in the period they proclaim to portray.

Shopping at a Flea Market

Flea markets or swap meets are places where many different

sellers gather to sell items, especially used or handmade

items. They tend to be all-weekend affairs, and some may

raise money for charity. Flea markets can be either outdoor

or indoor, and bartering is usually acceptable. Here are some

tips for scoring great deals at the flea market.


You want to dress comfortably, especially if the flea market

is outside, but definitely dress down. Leave the brand names

and the jewelry at home. You want to look as frugal as possible.

Haggling is common practice at the flea market, and

many items may not even be priced so that vendors can name

a price on the spot based almost solely on your appearance.

To get the best deals, you’ll need to look the part.


This isn’t the place to whip out your card. Cash is king,

and to pull off your no-disposable-income ruse, carry small

bills unless you’re looking to make a big purchase like home

furnishings. Keep your cash separated so you don’t flash a

big wad to the vendor, even if it is all $1 bills and $5 bills.


Hit the flea market when the doors open to make sure you

get what you’re looking for, at the best price. If you arrive

late, you may get a good deal as vendors look to liquidate

Defining Vintage


If you’ve got real antique items that are more than 100

years old, then antique is the word to use. Be prepared,

however, when pricing and negotiating, that you may attract

buyers who really know their stuff. Know yours as well. For

true antiques, it may be well worth your while to engage an

appraiser and the services of a sale house.

By advertising vintage items, you’re letting people know

that you are selling things that were made and used in that

time period. Buyers won’t expect things in perfect condition,

but they will expect you to be honest and price accordingly.

If you’re missing pieces or accessories, be upfront about that

and price accordingly. You should know something about

how and when you acquired the pieces, but it’s OK if you

really don’t know. Be specific, if you can, about the time

periods of items you have.

If you don’t know for sure that you have vintage or antique

items, go with the word retro for your ad. These items may

be worth a little less, but they may also be in better shape or

with more safety features than vintage items.

• • •

before packing up, but you also risk some of the best vendors

selling out or their goods being picked over. For the best

selection, get there early.


When you can, make a decision quickly and stand by it.

Walking away could mean missing out on a deal or it could

mean the price going up. If the item is large, the seller should

be willing to hold it for you so that you can enjoy the rest

of the market. And if the answer is no, stick with it. If the

vendor won’t meet your targeted price, move on. There are

other fish in the sea.


Have a friend come with you to bounce ideas off of and

to provide a second pair of hands and eyes. A friend can also

help you stake out items and get larger buys home safely.

Friends can also help you haggle for better prices. Work out

your strategy before you go.


It’s a good idea to bring something to take notes with, such

as the location of certain items, the names and numbers of

vendors who may have something worth looking at offsite,

where you parked, and a list of what you’re looking to buy

today. Make your lists, check them twice, and get the best

deals you can.

Finds of a Lifetime

Garage sales are full of all kinds of unique

items for sale. You can find clothes that are

no longer for sale in stores, toys and games

from your childhood and other items.

And, every once in a while, you can find

genuinely valuable items for a song.


A shopper at a 2020 Connecticut garage sale found a

blue-and-white Chinese floral bowl decorated with lotus,

peony, chrysanthemum and pomegranate blossoms. They

snagged it for $35. It later sold for more than $721,000,

because it wasn’t any ordinary bowl. It was a 15th century

antique commissioned by the Chinese imperial court during

the Ming dynasty.

It’s a lotus bowl, named not for the paintings but for its

shape’s resemblance to a lotus bud. It was made between

1403 and 1424 during the Yongle Emperor, a period noted

for its distinctive and celebrated porcelain techniques.

The small bowl was just more than 6 inches across. It’s

unknown how it came to be at the sale, but only six other

similar bowls are known to have survived, auction house

Sotheby’s says. Those bowls are housed by places such

as the National Palace Museum in Taipei, the British Museum

and the Victoria & Albert Museum.


An old painting snapped up at a 1989 Pennsylvania flea

market for $4 was hiding one of 500 official copies from

the first printing of the Declaration of Independence. Only

23 similar copies remain, and most of those are privately

owned. It fetched more than $2 million at a 1991 Sotheby’s


“This was a record for any printed Americana. It was far

and away the highest price for historical Americana ever,”

said auctioneer and Sotheby’s Senior Vice President David


The document later sold again in 2000 for more than $8

million, going on the road as part of Norman Lear’s Declaration

of Independence Road Trip.


A British businessman bought some Gertrude Stein

drawings at a 2012 Las Vegas garage sale. He says he was

getting the purported Stein drawings frame when he found

another picture signed Andy Warhola.

The seller of the drawings said she used to babysit

Warhol, and the businessman says the drawing is one of

the pop artist’s earliest works.

There’s some controversy, however, as the artist’s family

disputes his story and the Warhol Authentication Board

never verified the drawing.

You may not get as lucky as these buyers, but you can

find your own treasures at your local garage sale.

of drawing, paintings and etchings not publicly shown

from The Vermont Arts Council in 1976 and it was shortly thereafter

that he switched his focus from printmaking to painting.

Brauer’s painting has gone through many changes over the years.

Always figurative, always evocative and frequently sensual, he

strove to be a Renaissance painter while employing contemporary

design and color concepts. At the Festival Gallery, 5031 Main St.

New Guide Details How

to Create a Rain


As public awareness of stormwater issues increases, so

does interest in finding ways to protect local waterways.

For many homeowners, schools, businesses and municipalities,

the answer may be installing a rain garden.

Rain gardens capture, soak up and filter stormwater

runoff from roofs and paved surfaces, protecting lakes,

ponds and rivers from pollutants such as fertilizers, pet

waste and oil leaks from cars. They also can add beauty to

an area or serve as a food source for bees, butterflies and

other pollinators.

The Lake Champlain Sea Grant program and University

of Vermont (UVM) Extension recently released an updated

guide to rain garden design and installation for landowners.

Rain Garden Manual for Vermont and Lake

Champlain Basin can be downloaded at https://go.uvm.


Free, printed copies will be available later this summer.

To reserve a copy, email

The 28-page manual outlines the benefits of rain gardens

and provides step-by-step instructions for planning,

design and installation, including factors to consider such

as location, size, slope, soil type, costs, labor and maintenance.

It also explains why rain gardens are a cost-effective

green stormwater infrastructure practice and how they

can be incorporated into a number of different landscapes.

Another section looks at plant selection and criteria

including sun exposure, salt and drought tolerance, bloom

time, color and seasonal interest with a focus on using

species native to Vermont or the Lake Champlain basin.

These plants require less watering, fertilizing and overall

care as they have both adapted to and thrive in this climate.

A list of recommended plants, including pollinatorfriendly

species, and U.S. Department of Agriculture plant

hardiness zone maps for Vermont and northern New York

are included.

This third edition is based on the original manual that

was created by the Winooski Natural Resources

Conservation District in 2009 in collaboration with UVM

Extension, Lake Champlain Sea Grant, the Vermont

Agency of Natural Resources and other partners.

UVM Extension Course

Teaches Composting


Backyard composting is a cost-efficient, natural way to

dispose of food scraps and yard waste that benefits lawns

and gardens by providing a source of nutrient-rich matter.

You can learn about this process through the University

of Vermont (UVM) Extension’s Master Composter Course,

which starts Sept. 10. In addition to providing “recipes”

for making compost, the course covers the biology of

composting, site and bin selection, troubleshooting and

Vermont’s Universal Recycling Law, among other topics.

Two tracks will be offered, a self-paced option and one

for certification as a Vermont Master Composter volunteer.

Vermonters pay $50 for either track although if seeking

volunteer certification, an application and Zoom

interview are required before acceptance into the program.

Out-of-state residents may only register for the self-paced

course for a fee of $150.

The volunteer application and registration information

can be found at

To request a disability-related accommodation to

participate, call Beret Halverson at (802) 656-1777 by

Aug. 20.

If accepted for the volunteer certification program, you

must participate in online sessions, offered on consecutive

Thursdays, Sept. 16 - Oct. 28, from 6-7 p.m. You also will

need to complete weekly assignments and attend an inperson

composting workshop.

Volunteer certification will require a commitment of 10

hours on an approved composting project within two years

of completing the course. To maintain status, you will

need a minimum of five hours annually in future years.

If you register for the self-paced track, you will have

access to the same course materials and pre-recorded lectures.

You can work at your own pace, but you must finish

the course by Dec. 15. No volunteer commitment is

required. Upon successful completion of the course, you

will receive a Vermont Home Composter certificate.

The course is sponsored by the UVM Extension

Community Horticulture Program with financial support

from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. If you

have questions, call (802) 656-9562 or email

Rain Gardens for Stormwater Management

By Bonnie Kirn Donahue

Extension Master Gardener

University of Vermont

Water plays a significant role in the health of our landscapes

in more ways than meets the eye.

Stormwater is water that collects on the surface during and

after a rainstorm or from melting snow. Depending on the

permeability and slope of the surface it hits, stormwater can

slowly infiltrate into the earth or wash over impermeable surfaces

picking up oils, debris and pollutants along the way.

Without sustainable mitigation strategies in place, this

warm, polluted water can end up in our local rivers, ponds and

lakes, adding silt and pollution directly into our beautiful

natural resources, lowering water and habitat quality.

While stormwater management requires collaboration at

many levels, including state, community and private landowner,

there are strategies each of us can implement to help

manage stormwater runoff.

Utilizing plants in your landscape is an excellent way to

help treat stormwater runoff. In addition to adding beauty and

food for wildlife and insects, plants prevent soil erosion, slow

down water speeds and soak up water and nutrients.

One way to utilize plants for stormwater management is to

build rain gardens. Rain gardens temporarily collect stormwater,

allowing it to slowly infiltrate into the earth.

Rain gardens often are planted with a plant species that can

tolerate both wet and dry soils because there will be times

when the rain garden is either saturated or dry. Try to pick

plants that are native and pollinator-friendly. This will turn

your rain garden into an area that not only manages stormwater

but provides food and shelter to beneficial insects and


Plants such as cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), butterfly

weed (Asclepias incarnata), Joe-pye weed (Eutrochium maculatum),

blue flag iris (Iris versicolor) and red twig dogwood

(Cornus sericea) are great plants to test out in rain gardens.

Soil infiltration is incredibly important for the success of a

rain garden. Not every natural low spot will make a good

place for a rain garden. If your soil is compacted or heavy in

clay, water may not soak into the soil quickly enough, causing

your plants to struggle and water to sit too long on the surface.

The size of your rain garden should be based on the amount

of stormwater you plan to collect. First, you have to determine

where the water is coming from.

Is it from your roof or driveway, or a gutter or patio?

If you raise chickens, then you

know that while they are laying

baskets of farm fresh eggs and

amusing you with their antics, they

are also generating a LOT of


Coop litter contains manure,

feathers, undigested food and bedding

material. A single chicken can

produce as much as 130 pounds of

litter per year!

Fortunately, poultry litter is a

beneficial soil amendment for vegetable

gardens, flowerbeds and

lawns. It improves soil structure,

water-holding capacity, nutrient

availability, biological activity and

overall soil nutrition.

However, raw chicken manure

contains levels of nitrogen and

salts that can be damaging to

plants. It also can contain harmful

Salmonella and E. coli bacteria. It

takes approximately 120 days for

the pathogens to die and organic

matter to break down.

You can apply and incorporate

litter in the fall after you have harvested everything in your

garden. Avoid direct application to plants that are to remain.

The most effective way is to compost the litter and work the

composted matter into your garden in the fall. If you want to

apply composted litter in spring, you must begin a second

container or pile around the first of the year, so all the compost

you apply has composted for the required 120 days.

Proper composting begins in the coop with 2-3 inches of

bedding. Remove the litter when the proportion of litter to

manure reaches about 50-50, roughly in 2-4 weeks. This nitrogen

in the manure and carbon in the litter is ideal for composting.

In winter, you can switch to the deep-litter method by adding

about an inch of bedding weekly, maintaining the 50-50

proportion. This provides tidy footing for your chickens and

maintains a healthy composting environment right under their


Smelly coop? It’s time to add more bedding. Remove it

when the weather warms to above freezing daytime temperatures

or if the buildup becomes inconvenient.

To compost your litter, construct a three-sided container

with wood pallets or other untreated materials, allowing

spaces for air flow. The ideal size is 3-ft. x 3-ft. x 3-ft. The

• • •

Measure the surface area of these sources to help determine

the overall area of the rain garden that you need.

For more details, check out the Rain Garden Manual for

Vermont and the Lake Champlain Basin (

raingarden) from Lake Champlain Sea Grant and University

of Vermont Extension for specific recommendations on rain

garden size, soil type, plant selection and easy-to-follow

instructions for building your own rain garden.

Looking for other ideas for how you can help mitigate

stormwater runoff?

A few simple things you can do are trying to mow your

lawn less often, cutting the grass no shorter than three inches

or even considering what areas you could leave as meadow.

If you have any open soil, plant a cover crop or add mulch

to help keep the soil from eroding in rainstorms or snow melts.

If you live close to a river or pond, make sure to leave a

large planted buffer between the water’s edge and lawn. This

will help filter stormwater runoff and pollutants from entering

the water and lowering water quality.

Every one of these small changes can make a big impact on

improving water quality, and creating a more sustainable

world. Test one out and see the difference it can make!

Turn the pile every 1-2 weeks. If it gets smelly, add carbon

Finished compost has a rich brown color and an earthy

odor. The components are no longer visible in their original

form. Use only fully finished compost during the growing


As a starting point, you can apply 14 pounds raw or 44

pounds composted litter to a 100-sq.-ft. garden. A five-gallon

gallon bucket holds about 25 pounds of litter.

Over time, you will need to reduce amounts applied to

prevent buildup of excessive nutrients. For best results, get a

soil test done every year or two. You can get your soil tested

The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation and the

Ascutney Trails Association Announce the Opening of the Norcross Trail

The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation

(FPR) in partnership with Ascutney Trails Association (ATA)

announced the completion and opening of a new multi-use

trail on Mt. Ascutney. The 8-mile Norcross Trail provides a

link for mountain bikers and hikers between the Ascutney

Outdoors Center and Mount Ascutney State Park.

Conceived in 2010, ATA members and FPR staff have spent

the last 11 years working through a comprehensive environmental

review to develop an ecologically sound trail, laying

the trail out on the ground, and constructing this hand-built

single-track recreational destination. Between 2016 and 2021,

FPR-funded crews from the Vermont Youth Conservation

Corps spent nine weeks clearing and constructing trail.

Ascutney Trails Association funded and built three bridges

and contributed both paid and volunteer trail labor and design

work. Two of the major bridges built in 2020 required a

design stamped by a civil engineer and subsequent approval

by Vermont state engineers. Stantec Consulting Services generously

donated engineer time to help contain related costs.

Additional trail funding came from community donations,

annual Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) membership

dues, and two VMBA trail grants which totaled about

$10,000 in funds designated to covering bridge construction

costs. Eminent trail builder Jim Lyall has supported the project,

donating hundreds of hours to design an iconic trail that

takes hikers and bikers across stunning terrain. Features

include a beautiful mountain stream crossing, granite slabs,

Hikers and rock climbers can return to

Vermont cliffs starting August 1, now that

peregrine falcon nesting season has ended.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department

has confirmed that all the young falcons have

learned to fly and should not be disturbed by

human presence on the cliffs.

“The young peregrines have fledged, and

nesting data suggest Vermont falcons had a

successful year. A final report will be issued

later this year,” said Vermont Fish and

Wildlife’s migratory bird biologist Doug

Morin. “The falcon’s nesting success is due

to a combination of factors, including good

weather and cooperation from hikers and rock

climbers who observe a respectful distance

from nesting falcons during this critical period.

Peregrine nesting success would not be

possible without more than 50 volunteers

who monitor the nest sites statewide from

March to the end of July.”

According to Audubon biologist Margaret

Fowle, who coordinates the monitoring effort

on behalf of the Fish and Wildlife Department,

biologists and volunteers monitored peregrine

pairs that occupied at least 52 Vermont cliffs

in early spring and summer.

“We greatly appreciate the time and effort

volunteers put into monitoring the population

this year, and we thank landowners and recreationists

for their cooperation in protecting

nesting peregrines from human disturbance,”

said Fowle.

Vermont Fish and Wildlife and Audubon

from a single trail head without walking between trailheads on

busy Routes 44 and 44A.

For mountain bikers, the trail connects the vast network of

bike trails on the West Windsor town forest with Mount

Ascutney State Park and the Swoops and Loops Trail. As bike

trails are developed on the Weathersfield town forest, this trail

will also serve to link the two town forest trail networks.

When compared to typical East Coast mountain bike trail

networks, bikers will enjoy the unique simplicity of a through

trail with limited intersections and decision points.

To access the Norcross trail, bikers can park either at the

Swoops and Loops trail parking area across from the State

Park, or at the Ascutney Outdoors Center. Bikes are not

allowed on the Windsor or Brownsville hiking trails and are

asked not to park at either trailhead. Hikers may access the

trail from Ascutney Outdoors, the Swoops and Loops parking

area or from the Windsor and Brownsville trails existing trailhead

Cross Vermont Trail Bridge Installed Over Winooski River in East Montpelier

The Cross Vermont Trail Association has announced

completion of the first stage of a new trail

bridge over the Winooski River. The 205-foot long

steel bridge in East Montpelier is a vital link in

the 90-mile trail between Lake Champlain and the

Connecticut River.

Onlookers cheered from Route 2 as the bridge

settled onto new riverbank abutments after contractors

gently eased it across the river. CCS Constructors

of Morrisville installed the steel framework of

the bridge using a floating river barge and two tall


When completed the new Winooski River bridge

will allow recreationists and commuters to safely

travel a wooded trail near the river and avoid using

the shoulder of busy Route 2. The bridge will

be open to the public later this fall after decking

is installed and approaches are built on either side.

The association is planning a public ribbon cutting

ceremony for October.

“Safety and accessibility are always on our

minds as we build the trail,” said CVTA Executive

Director Greg Western. “The Siboinebi Path gets a

ton of use, and I’m excited to think that folks will

be able to continue past the Montpelier Civic Center

and keep going,” he said, referring to the recent

extension of the Montpelier bike path. Western is

currently working with an AmeriCorps crew from

the National Civilian Conservation Corps to begin

construction of a new path beginning at Gallison

Hill Road and east to the new bridge.

The bridge is the centerpiece of a three-year

WDEV-Calkins Night Postponed to September 10

Thunder Road officials have postponed WDEV Radio/

Calkins Portable Toilet Night that was scheduled for Thursday,

July 29 due to a rainy forecast. The event is now slated for

Friday, September 10 at 7:00 p.m.

Rain was expected to begin in the Central Vermont area

between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m on Thursday and continue through

the night. The combination of the rainy outlook and a busy

weekend ahead for teams and fans — which includes the

American-Canadian Tour Midsummer Classic 250 at White

Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday and the Bolduc

slot the WDEV-Calkins event for the open September weekend.

GMP Begins Electrifying Field Operations Fleet

with First All-Electric Bucket Truck

Green Mountain Power (GMP) will replace two heavy-duty

fossil-fuel field operations trucks with two all-electric trucks

manufactured by Lion Electric in 2022 a fully outfitted bucket

truck for line crews and a Class 6 stake-body truck for electrical

maintenance field crews.

The two trucks are expected to offset up to 100 tons of

greenhouse gas emissions per year, representing a big advancement

in clean electric vehicle technology for heavy-duty work

and are a major step toward P’s goal of electrifying its field

operations fleet. P is among the first utilities in New England

to receive all-electric heavy-duty trucks for its fleet. This

move is the latest step GMP has already taken to cut carbon

in its fleet, including using clean B20 biodiesel in almost all

trucks for many years, and incorporating fully electric cars and

plug-in hybrid vehicles into other aspects of its fleet.

Electrifying our heavy-duty field operations fleet to reduce

carbon emissions as we travel the state keeping the lights

on and building a more resilient grid is a critical next step in

our work to eliminate fossil fuels from our operations,” said

Mari McClure, president and CEO of Green Mountain Power.

“Transportation with fossil-fueled vehicles is the top source of

carbon emissions in Vermont and we’re proud to start the process

of converting our line truck fleet to clean electric trucks.”

GMP received about a $915,000 grant through the VW settlement

fund managed by the Agency of Natural Resources,

and will collect data about the trucks’ use, performance, charging,

and carbon reduction to help the state learn more about the

opportunities electric trucks offer the state in reaching clean

energy goals.

“Reducing public exposure to diesel emissions is an ongoing

challenge,” said Peter Walke, commissioner of the Vermont

Department of Environmental Conservation. “This project reduces

both criteria air pollutants and greenhouse gases, moving

Vermont closer to meeting our GHG emissions reduction

goals, and supporting our electrification goals for the mediumand

heavy-duty vehicle sector.”

Lion Electric – a leading North American manufacturer of

medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles – will manufacture

the trucks to order, with the first truck expected to be

delivered to P in the first quarter of 2022, and the second

one scheduled to arrive next summer.

“As a clean-energy leader, Vermont is a great example of

how to integrate sustainable energy and electrified transportation,

which is key to creating a successful sustainable society

and economy in the future,” said Marc Bedard, CEO, and

founder of Lion Electric. “With reduced emissions and noise

pollution, these trucks will eliminate emissions in the communities

where they operate while saving on fleet costs, and

we look forward to growing our relationship with GMP in the


Because there is no combustion engine, like all EVs, there

are savings on maintenance and fuel – reducing maintenance

costs by up to 60 percent, and energy costs by up to 80 percent.

Additionally, the bucket truck and its auxiliary systems run entirely

off the vehicle’s battery pack, eliminating emissions and

noise pollution. The line truck has a range of 130 miles, and the

stake truck can go 200 miles on a charge.

The grant will also help customers through the purchase of

two bi-directional fast chargers for the trucks. This provides

charging convenience, plus the chargers’ two-way energy flow

means when the trucks are plugged in and not in use, GMP

can tap into the stored energy in their batteries during peak

energy use times on the grid. This helps reduce demand and

costs when energy is most expensive for customers. The two

vehicle-to-grid (V2G) chargers are expected to generate more

than $135,000 in savings for customers, building on GMP’s

earlier work with V2G, using stored energy in a Nissan Leaf

for peak energy reduction.

To learn more about the work GMP is doing to make it easier

than ever to convert to an electric vehicle, check out information

Sunoco & Twisted Tea to Present

Thompson World Series Action

American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro

All Stars Series (PASS) officials have

announced partnerships with Sunoco and

Twisted Tea to present the 59th World Series

of Speedway Racing at Connecticut’s

Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The

three-day auto racing festival is scheduled for

Friday, October 8 through Sunday, October

10 and is highlighted by the return of the

$20,000-to-win Thompson 300.

The Thompson World Series extravaganza

will once again be known as the Sunoco

World Series of Speedway Racing. Sunoco

has been the sponsor of the World Series for

the last decade-plus and returns to present the

three-day series. As part of the agreement, the

300-lap Outlaw Open Modified Series feature

will be known as the Sunoco Thompson 300.

Additionally, the Thompson 300 has now

been switched to a one-day format. All qualifying

races and the main event will be on

Sunday, October 10. Optional practice sessions

are slated for Friday and Saturday with

a session on Sunday prior to qualifying.

Officials decided the one-day format would

be in the best interests of teams and fans, giving

them more options about how to approach

the race weekend.

Meanwhile, the Twisted Tea brand of hard

iced tea — via its parent Boston Beer

Company and their longtime partner Hartford

Distributing — will present the Saturday portion

of the motorsport festival. Twisted Tea

World Series Saturday includes a National

Championship event for the PASS Super Late

Models and an ACT Late Model Tour event.

The deal is an extension of the partnership

with Boston Beer Company and Hartford

Distributing to present the Wednesday night

events at Thompson Speedway in 2021.

“We’re glad to continue working with both

Sunoco and Twisted Tea,” ACT managing

partner Cris Michaud said. “They got onboard

with our vision for Thompson Speedway very

early in the process. All of us have been

happy with the results so far, which made

continuing these partnerships for the World

Series an easy decision. We’re looking forward

to the event and to the rest of the season

at Thompson.”

The full Sunoco World Series of Speedway

Racing division line-up will be announced in

the coming weeks. Please check the ACT,

PASS, and Thompson Speedway websites for

further updates.

The choice for staying put or moving on

Many home improvement television

series showcase people deciding whether to

improve upon their current homes to make

them into the houses of their dreams or to put

“for sale” signs in their lawns and move on

to something new.

The question of whether to move or stay

put depends on various factors. Such factors

may include emotional attachment to a

home, the current economic climate and the

cost of real estate. Current data points to a

greater propensity for people to invest and

improve upon their current properties rather

than trading up for something new.

According to information collected by

John Burns Real Estate Consulting, the percentage

of homeowners moving up to their

next home is the lowest in 25 years. Many

are opting to make starter homes permanent

by expanding them and repairing homes for

the long haul.

The National Association of Realtors said

that, between 1987 and 2008, home buyers

stayed in their homes an average of six years

before selling. Since 2010, however, NAR

says the average expected length of time

people will stay in their homes before selling

is now 15 years.

Part of what’s fueling this permanency is

that many home buyers were able to acquire

rock-bottom mortgage interest rates shortly

after the 2008 recession. As a result, they’re

not inclined to walk away from those rates,

even if doing so means getting more house.

Also, a low inventory of available houses has

stymied repeat buying for many people.

Those factors and others have led many

homeowners to invest in renovations instead.

The experts at Bankrate say realistic budgeting

and comparing renovation project costs

against mortgages and interests rates can

further help individuals decide whether to

remain in their current homes or move out.

Very often a smarter layout and more efficient

floor plan can make meaningful differences

in spaces. Renovations and redesigns

can make sense and often are less expensive

and disruptive than moving.

Tips for home buyers during a seller’s market

A combination of factors, including low interest rates and a pandemic-driven decision by

many city dwellers to look for houses in the suburbs, has created a housing boom for much

of 2020 and 2021. That boom has created an undeniable seller’s market in real estate.

ust what is a seller’s market The financial resource

Investopedia defines it as a marketplace in which there are

fewer goods for sale than there are interested buyers, giving

sellers the ability to dictate prices. Since mid-2020, there has

been an extremely low inventory of homes for sale but a very

high interest among purchasing parties.

Data from the National Association of Realtors indicated

that, by the end of February 2021, housing inventory fell to

a record low of 1.02 million units. These factors have led to

a surge in competition from buyers, including bidding wars

on homes and all-cash offers to entice sellers. In December

2020, the median listing prices for single-family homes shot

up 13.4 percent from the same time the previous year, according

to, and it hasn’t slowed down much since.

Jeffrey Mezger, a 40-year veteran of the real estate industry

and CEO of KB Home, says it’s the best seller’s housing

market he’s seen in his career.

So where does this leave buyers interested in relocating?

Here are some tips.

• Consider areas with slower overall price growth. Experts

say the southern and midwestern United States offer the

best value for home shoppers because of their meager price

growth. ClearCapital, which tracks housing values, says San

Antonio, St. Louis and the Dallas/Fort Worth areas experienced

the least price appreciation from 2019 into 2020.

• Get preapproval or have your funds ready. Speed is the way

to go if a buyer is interested in a property and wants to make

an offer. Real estate professionals say buyers should be “offer

ready,” which means having a mortgage preapproval letter

or proof of funds for a down payment ready to go. Failure to

have funds in check can slow down the process or compel

sellers to reject an offer.

• Work with a real estate agent. These are complicated times

and it pays for buyers to have a professional working in their

corner. A real estate agent uses his or her knowledge to make

a timely offer and negotiate on the buyer’s behalf. He or she

also will provide insight into specific neighborhoods, amenities

and school districts.

• • •

• Eliminate certain contingencies from the equation. Contingencies

are factors that must be met before a sale can go

through, according to the relocation site A

common contingency is the need to sell one’s current home

before closing on another. Asking for extended closing periods

or certain home repairs are some additional contingencies

that can make buyers less attractive to sellers.

• Make it personal. Buyers can offer a personalized note with

the offer that may connect with the seller emotionally and set

one them apart from others who have made similar offers.

Buying in a seller’s market can be challenging. But some

strategies can set buyers apart from the pack.

5 Factors to Consider When Buying A Home

Various factors determine what makes a home an attractive

place to live. While some considerations may overlap, others

may be unique to individual buyers. Those new to the real

estate arena may want to consider the following factors as

they search for a new place to call home.


Property taxes can greatly affect the overall cost of living

in a particular home. The real estate company RedFin says

property taxes are generally levied by each county and often

include taxes paid to schools, utility companies and municipal

governments. Property taxes will usually be factored into

a monthly mortgage payment, and how high (or low) taxes

are can turn an affordable mortgage payment into something

that can break a budget. When calculating payments, be sure

to include property taxes in your estimates.


For potential homeowners with children or those planning

on becoming parents, area schools should merit significant

consideration. Research school rankings and reviews, but

know that rankings can change. American Family Insurance

Company says to also look at the school budget history of

towns you’re considering to see if residents prioritize funding

for education. This can be a measure of how important

education is in a given community.


Home ownership involves both lifestyle and financial

decisions. Calculate the time it will take to travel to and from

work when considering a certain town or neighborhood. Find

out if there is mass transit and what options are available for

off-hour travel needs.
