the vermont antique and

classic car meet

A permanent “Vermont Antique and Classic Car” show planning committee of over 20 VAE members meets

monthly year ‘round to bring fresh ideas to each year’s edition of the Show. These same volunteers will spend

upwards to a week or more at Farr’s Field as well, preparing the show field for the influx of antique vehicles of all

types. Marking the field for 400 + automotive flea market vendors takes more than a day with a crew of six running

line and driving stakes. Most are on duty throughout the three days, living in campers or RVs at the field. Food is

prepared on site at the “compound” for work crews. It may not be gourmet, but its fresh and satisfying. Come Sunday

morning, there’s a free Judges Breakfast at the Firemen’s food tent. Upwards of 100 volunteers are recruited to be

judges in order to complete the task of technical inspections for 300-400 qualifying vehicles in time for an early

afternoon awards program. Yes, there’s a lot of camaraderie each August at Farr’s Field. Consider volunteering while

at the show.

FINANCIAL FOCUS

More Relief In Sight for Business Owners

If you own a business that’s been affected by the COVID-19

pandemic, you may have received some type of aid from the

government – or maybe not. But in either case, some new

opportunities for assistance may interest you.

President Biden signed

legislation extending the

Paycheck Protection Program

(PPP) application

deadline from March 31

to May 31, 2021. So, if

you haven’t received a

PPP loan yet – or even if

you have, and you’re eligible

for a “second draw”

loan – you’ve got another chance.

As you may know, a PPP loan may be fully

forgiven, including interest, if the loan proceeds

are used for eligible expenses such as

payroll costs (including benefits), mortgage

interest, rent, utilities, operations expenditures,

property damage costs, supplier costs

and work protection expenditures.

The recently enacted American Rescue

Plan Act (ARP) also strengthens the PPP, providing

$7.25 billion more in aid and expanding

eligibility to some nonprofit organizations

and local digital news services. And other

recent changes to the PPP program were designed

specifically to help smaller businesses.

Apart from these PPP benefits, the ARP includes

other components that can help business

owners, including the following:

• Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) –

The ARP allocated $15 billion to the Small

Business Administration (SBA) to offer additional

$10,000 EIDL advances for qualifying

businesses.

• Sick & Family Leave Tax Credit – The ARP

extends the Sick & Family Leave Tax Credit

through Sept. 30, 2021, increases the wages

covered by the credit to $12,000 per worker

(from $10,000) and expands the number of

days covered for self-employed individuals to

60 (from 50).

• Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program –

The ARP adds $1.25 billion to this program,

which covers live venue operators or promoters,

theatrical producers, live performing arts

organization operators, motion picture theater

operators and qualified museums, zoos and

aquariums. Businesses can now apply for a

PPP loan and a Shuttered Venue grant.

• Restaurant Revitalization Fund – Dining

establishments have been particularly hard hit

by the pandemic. To aid in the industry’s recovery,

the ARP established the $28.6 billion

Restaurant Revitalization Fund, which offers

direct grants to restaurants and other qualifying

food operations.

To learn more about PPP loans, as well as

the other programs mentioned above, visit the

Small Business Administrations’ coronavirus

relief website at www.sba.gov/coronavirusrelief.

You also may want to contact your tax advisor

to discuss other aspects of the ARP that

might affect you, such as the Employee Retention

Credit. The ARP has extended this tax

credit through the end of 2021 and expanded

it to include “recovery start-up businesses”

that began operations after Feb. 15, 2020, and

have annual gross receipts of $1 million or

less.

Running a business is never easy – and

for many business owners, this past year has

truly presented an existential threat. Hopefully,

though, as widespread vaccinations help

bring the pandemic under control, we will

soon see a return to more normal times. Until

that day arrives, you may find that the newest

relief measures can help you keep pushing

forward.

Voting Matters Front and

Center In Vermont

Hard Won, Not Done: Voting Matters, presented by the Vermont

Suffrage Centennial Alliance (VSCA) to commemorate

voting and the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will be held

on Saturday, August 14, between 3:00-5:00 p.m. on the State

House Lawn.

The event coalesces around four themes: non-citizen voting,

enfranchisement, queer inclusion, municipal voting, and

incorporates music, land acknowledgement, speeches, poetry,

and art with the intention of expanding our understanding of

the struggles experienced by marginalized communities in obtaining

and exercising their right to vote.

Annette Gordon-Reed, historian, Harvard professor, Pulitzer

Prize and National Book Award author delivers the keynote

address, Voting in Texas—156 Years of Struggle. She explores

Black Texans’ exercise of voting rights after Juneteenth 1865,

denial of those rights during the South’s redemption period,

and today’s fight to preserve them. A native of Texas, Gordon-

Reed grew up in the racially segregated town of Conroe and

was the first child to integrate the town’s all-white school.

Mia Schultz (Bennington), president of the Rutland-area

NAACP, serves as MC. An educator, organizer, and problemsolver,

she will highlight the importance of being engaged in

municipal voting as she weaves together the four elements of

the program.

Nicole Nelson (Burlington) of “Dwight & Nicole” provides

musical entertainment. Dubbed “The Voice of Vermont,” she

founded the Vermont chapter of the Resistance Revival Chorus

in response to persistent police brutality and racial injustices.

Speakers for the afternoon include:

Activist Melody Mackin, who will do the land dedications

and talk about Native Americans’ voting rights. A citizen of

the Elnu Abenaki Band, Mackin previously served as chair

of the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs. In

00, she was named one of SA Today’s Most Influential

Women of the Century as part of the centennial celebration of

the Suffrage Movement.

Dr. Jean Szilva (Winooski), assistant professor emerita at

UVM Medical College and recipient of numerous teaching

awards, in retirement, is dedicated to making good trouble and

will speak on LGBQTIA Inclusion.

Students Hussein Amuri (Winooski) and Tyler Hedding

(East Montpelier) will read personal essays on non-citizen

voting and The For The People Act respectively. Amuri, an

immigrant from Tanzania, was a member of the Winooski

Charter Commission where he worked to advise City Council

on a charter change to allow non-citizens to vote in municipal

elections. Hedding was recognized with All-Around Learner,

Central Vermont Chamber Music

Festival is Back!

The Central Vermont Chamber Music estival

is finally able to catch up with itself and

celebrate its 28th season which wasn’t possible

last August. In their two week residency

at Chandler Music Hall they are offering the

usual wide variety of music. The first ensemble

By CompassVermont.com

July 25 was National Wine and Cheese

Day, celebrated by the International Business

Times with their “Eight Best Wine and

Cheese Pairings,” including the Green Mountain

State’s own Vermont Creamery Chèvre

making the list.

The publication suggested Cru Sauvignon

Blanc with the Creamery’s chèvre.

The earthy and nutty flavors of goat

cheese blend perfectly with the bright and

citrus notes of Sauvignon Blanc. This Chvre

from Vermont Creamery is light and creamy

that pairs well with the 2018 Smith & Sheth

Cru Sauvignon Blanc from Wairau, ew ealand,

because of its hints of tropical fruit and

floral aroma.

Vermont Creamery was founded in

by two young entrepreneurs, Allison Hooper

and Bob Reese,” says the company’s website.

“Allison learned how to make cheese during

an internship on a farm in Brittany, rance.

Bob worked for the Vermont Department of

Agriculture and was charged with organizing

a dinner featuring all Vermont-made products.

When a rench chef requested fresh goat

cheese, Bob scrambled to find a local producer.

He asked Allison, who was working in a

dairy lab and milking goats in Brookfield, to

make the cheese. The dinner was a success,

and the cheese was a hit; Vermont Creamery

was born that night.”

Vermont Creamery makes its cheeses in

Websterville and partners with farms in Randolph

and Brookfield. It also partners with

the St. Albans Creamery Cooperative, which

works with 30 family farms.

CompassVermont.Com is an independent

publication founded by a native Vermonter,

providing non-editorial news and stories presented

in concert with the culture, mindset,

and values of the Green Mountain State.

Paid Family and Medical Leave Solution

Youths Invited to Join First Robotics Program

• • •

Workers, small business owners, advocates

and legislative leaders came together for the

premiere of “We Believe in Paid Leave”, a

video campaign lifting up eight stories from

throughout Vermont, highlighting the critical

and urgent need for the passage of an equitable

and robust national paid family and medical

leave solution. They were joined by and

heard remarks from House Speaker Jill

Krowinski, Senate President Becca Balint, Lt.

Governor Molly Gray, and Congressman

Peter Welch.

We know that 65% of Vermont’s workers

don’t have access to paid family and medical

leave and that the consequences are dire in

the event of a personal or family medical

emergency. We also know that no one chooses

when they get sick or injured and that for

most families, nine months is not enough time

to save for an adequate parental leave. An

equitable, inclusive, and comprehensive Paid

Family and Medical Leave solution would

ensure that all workers have the financial

security to put their health and safety first.

Sole-proprietor, Main Street Alliance

member, and subject of the “We Believe in

Paid Leave” video, Akshata Nayak of Jericho,

Vermont opened the call and had this to say:

“Our country talks so much about communities

and families, but now, it is time to actually

support them. Small businesses are often,

rightly so, called the lifeline of our communities.

And in the pandemic, our front line service-workers

literally put their health and

safety at risk every day to provide for us. This

policy will be game changing for them, and

for the growing number of sole-proprietors

like me, who want to work and provide for

their community, and often have no choice

but to push ourselves through extremely difficult

personal situations with no financial

support. We need a national solution that will

provide for all workers, all small businesses,

provide enough compensation and time for it

to be impactful, and provide for all kinds of

leave including personal, family and parental

leave.”

Following the video premiere, the call was

opened up to legislative leaders where they

heard from Congressman Peter Welch, Lt.

Governor Molly Gray, House Speaker Jill

Krowinski, and Senate President Becca

Balint. All leaders showed resounding support

and a deep commitment to standing with

our federal delegation as they work to get this

transformative policy across the finish line.

Key quotes from the speakers:

Congressman Peter Welch: “There is an

economic argument to be made about why

(Paid Leave) is good for the economy… but

for me this isn’t just about the economy, this

is about what kind of society that we want to

live in and what kind of social insurance programs

we want to have that apply to everybody.

Because all of us, at some time, are

going to need to take time off, and it may be

for a son or daughter, it may be for a mom or

dad, but we are going to need it ... It’s about

an understanding that in a society, we make

common commitments to one another, but as

part of that commitment, we have to set up

systems and structures that allow that promise

to be kept … This is the work that we should

be doing, creating stability and security for

families.”

Lt. Governor Molly Gray: “I will never

forget when my mother got sick and was hospitalized

... I used up all my accrued vacation

and sick leave (which wasn’t much) to be at

the hospital helping my family navigate the

medical emergency. As I ran out of paid

leave, I began to wonder, what would happen

if I had to take unpaid leave…how long

would it be before I couldn’t make my rent, or

my student loans or worse, would I have to

leave my job altogether. My story is not

unique. Long before the pandemic, Vermont

women and caregivers were finding themselves

in the position of having to make tough

decisions between caring for loved ones and

paying the bills. As we know, the pandemic

exacerbated everything. A stronger recovery

means long overdue investments in a national

comprehensive paid family and medical leave

policy that ensures no Vermonter has to

choose between caring for loved ones and

paying the bills.”

House Speaker Jill Krowinski : “Small

businesses are the backbone of our Vermont

economy, and so many of these businesses

have long called for the need to support workers

and businesses by having a leave program.

A federal paid family leave program where all

businesses, regardless of size, have access to

family and medical leave, would be a game

changer to our state. Vermonters should not

have to choose between taking care of a loved

one or risk losing their job.”

Senate President Becca Balint: “We don’t

have a system that allows people to be absolutely

human in their relationships with your

family members when you have a health crisis.

This isn’t good for families. It isn’t good

for communities. It isn’t good for the emotional

health and safety of individuals and

families when we do not take care of people

during times of crisis. I want to make a clear

show of support (to our federal delegation)

around paid family and medical leave, because

this is an equity issue. It’s about fairness. It’s

about helping women. It’s about helping people

of color. It’s about helping single parents

across the state, and I really hope that in the

next year or so we are going to see paid family

and medical leave get across the finish line,

and I can’t wait for that day.”

If you are a student, age 4-18, interested

in robotics, or an adult willing to serve as a

mentor or event volunteer, the FIRST robotics

program may be for you.

FIRST, which stands for “For Inspiration

and Recognition of Science and Technology,”

is a global program, started in 1989, that

provides an opportunity for youths to work

in teams to learn how to design, build and

program robots using STEM (science, technology,

engineering and mathematics) while

honing their problem-solving, communications

and other life skills.

Registration is now open for the 2021-22

season for three different program levels:

LEGO® League (ages 4-14) and the Tech

Challenge and Robotics Competition (both for

ages 14-18). Adult mentors also are needed to

provide both technical and non-technical help

to individual teams and to assist at local competitions

with set-up, judging and other tasks.

If interested in starting, joining or mentoring

a Vermont team, click on “Contact Us”

at www.firstinvt.org or get in touch with Liz

Kenton at liz.kenton@uvm.edu. For more information

about FIRST, check out the global

program’s website at www.firstinspires.org.

In addition to annual competitions that can

advance a team to regional or international

play, FIRST participants in Vermont will

enjoy related optional year-round activities,

including opportunities to tour industrial facilities

that use robotics in real-world applications

or learn skills such as welding or coding

from guest experts.

More than 679,000 youths from 110 countries

participate each season, supported by

coaches, mentors, businesses and educational

and professional institutions. In Vermont,

University of Vermont Extension 4-H and

the College of Engineering and Mathematical

Sciences, Norwich University and engineers

and maker spaces throughout the state provide

support for the program.

Governor Phil Scott Announces First Wave of School-

Based Vaccination Clinics Ahead of the School Year

Governor Phil Scott announced a series of

new walk-in vaccination clinics that will be

open at schools across Vermont next week.

You can either walk-in, or you can also visit

healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to guarantee

your spot by making an appointment online

or by phone.

“As the school year approaches, we want

as many eligible Vermont students as possible

to get vaccinated,” said Governor Scott.

“That’s why we’re setting up more schoolbased

vaccine clinics for students and their

families. These clinics are open, not only to

our students, but to anyone who needs to get

their shot.”

The best way to keep your child healthy –

and to ensure a smooth return to full, in person

learning – is to make sure they are vaccinated.

The vaccines are safe and highly

effective, including against the Delta variant.

With school just a few weeks away, now is

the time to start the vaccination process.

School-based vaccination clinics will be

available throughout the state into the fall.

The schedule for the clinics available next

week is outlined below. The hours for these

clinics can be found at the Department of

Health’s website: healthvermont.gov/

more clinics are added.

American Lung Association Launches

Vape-Free Schools Scholarship Fund

Currently, nearly 1 in 5 teens are vaping

and close to 1 in 4 teens are using at least one

tobacco product – becoming the next generation

addicted to tobacco. In Vermont, our high

school tobacco use rates are an alarming

28.2%. We are proud to share that today,

Thursday, August 5, 2021, the American

Lung Association announced the Vape-Free

Schools Scholarship Fund, a new effort to

fund schools’ implementation of the Vape-

Free Schools Initiative so that more kids can

access cessation, support and education.

The scholarship drive seeks to raise funds

to give schools across the country access to

the program. With a cost of $400 per training

seat, the goal is to raise $400,000 to serve

1,000 schools in need by the end of 2021.

Through this scholarship drive, the Lung

Association will enable faculty and students

in Vermont to access the Lung Association’s

proven vaping intervention and cessation

programs.

“With 28.2% of Vermont high school students

using tobacco products, our communities

need help in supporting students impacted

by tobacco use. As the nation’s trusted

champion of lung health, the American Lung

Association is proud to offer Vermont schools,

parents and students proven approaches to

end youth vaping in our communities and

help local students quit their addiction and

prevent future generations from getting

hooked,” said American Lung Association

Chief Mission Officer Deborah Brown.

The Vape-Free Schools Initiative provides

Russ Scully. “The leaders at See Change H2O

are proactively creating a better world for

coming generations.”

school administrators and educators with

training to offer an alternative-to-suspension

program for students found vaping, smoking

or chewing on school property, and a voluntary

vaping/tobacco cessation program for

youth wanting to quit for good.

Alternative to Suspension (INDEPTH®) is

an alternative for students who face suspension

for violating school vaping and tobacco

use policies. As teens continue to get hooked

on vaping, this is a supportive program that

teaches students about nicotine dependence

and establishing healthy boundaries, rather

than focusing solely on punitive measures.

Vaping Education & Tobacco Cessation

Program (Not-On-Tobacco® N-O-T) is a teen

smoking/vaping cessation program for students

that want to quit. The 10-session program

provides the tools, information, and

support for teens to end their addiction to

tobacco. Participating schools will be recognized

as part of the American Lung

Association Vape-Free Schools Initiative in

their communities.

imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a

crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely

independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking

comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at

their wedding.

As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to

the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction

is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready

to resume their life together.

This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into

the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound

and separated by forces beyond their control. An American

Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look

deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past

while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future.”

Vermont Writer Publishes Debut Novel Inspired by Family History

Rootstock Publishing, a Montpelier-based publisher and

imprint of Multicultural Media, Inc., announced the September

st release of Horodno Burning, a historical fiction debut

by Michael reed-Thall, of letcher, Vermont. Tim ewcomb,

an award-winning graphic designer and cartoonist, designed

the book. The cover features Marc Chagall’s The lying Carriage

Horodno Burning explores the turbulent history from -

that led to the migration of one-and-a-half million ews

from czarist Russia to America. Set in the Russian Empire’s

Pale of Settlement, the story follows Esther Leving, a brilliant

young bibliophile who chafes at male dominance, religious

dogma, and antisemitism and Bernard Garfinkle, a religious

a culture that worships books, he can’t read. Despite

their obvious differences, they fall in love and start a family.

When ferocious pogroms target Russian ews, they must confront

this violent oppression.

I was inspired to write Horodno Burning by pieces of my

family history, which included the arranged marriage between

my great-great-grandparents, Estes and Bernard, at ages

and , said author reed-Thall. The struggles of my ancestors

as they fled oppression and pogroms became the backdrop

for this novel, which I filled in with research and imagination,

he said.

Barre Art Splash - Artist Of The Week

John Landy with Schatzie

Recently, I have reconnected to my love of painting and have

been exploring ways to connect my painting with natural landscapes.

I fi nd inspiration in nature and our natural environment. I

employ a combination of land, sky and water to capture the natural

world and its peaceful inspiration primarily through the use of

soft pastels. I am particularly inspired to create works of art for

families with a personal connection to a landmark or location. The

site that holds special meaning in the family history or experience.

I am a member of the Vermont Pastel Society, The Paletteers of

Ralph Arnold Devenger

RALPH ARNOLD

DEVENGER passed away

from natural causes at his home in El

Paso, Texas on July 17, 2021, at the age of

71. Ralph was born on November 21,

1949, in New London, Connecticut,

being the fourth of nine children. As a

child Ralph grew up in Portsmouth,

Rhode Island where his father was stationed

in the Navy. The family moved

back to Hardwick, Vermont when Ralph was a junior in high

school. He attended and graduated from Hardwick Academy.

Following graduation, in 1968 Ralph joined the United States

Army and over the next twenty years he was stationed

throughout the United States, Korea, and Germany until he

retired from military service in 1988. His many years in

Germany always held a special place in his heart and provided

a backdrop for a multitude of stories of which he

enjoyed telling. In October 1981, Ralph married the love of

his life, Bonnie Gokey. They made their home together in El

Paso, Texas. After retirement, Ralph continued his passion

for learning earning a bachelor’s degree in Education from

UTEP. Ralph truly was a life-long learner, passionate about

constantly pursuing knowledge. He was always available to

answer trivia questions via phone calls when a family member

was in need. The family would often joke that they would

want him on their team of Trivial Pursuit. Like his father, he

too was an avid reader, enjoying books of all genres. He

could easily get lost in a good book for hours unless there was

a Yankees baseball game on the television. Ralph loved the

New York Yankees; he loved to watch them play, celebrated

all their wins, and suffered through all their losses. He was

always ready to defend his beloved Yankees and particularly

enjoyed discussing their triumphs during family reunions and

bantering with family who were rival Red Sox fans. His love

of baseball started at a young age, and he collected, traded,

and amassed an impressive baseball card collection over his

lifetime of which he took great pride. Besides watching the

game, Ralph also loved to play baseball and softball. He and

his wife also spent their time together bowling and fishing.

To his dismay, his love, Bonnie, passed away in 2004. He

sought comfort in fishing at one of several of his sacred fishing

holes in New Mexico where he would often escape and

enjoy the outdoors. These pastimes and his passions were not

lost as he introduced and passed them along to many of his

children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Ralph was predeceased by his mother, Helene (Pelletier)

Devenger (1972), his brother Larry Devenger of Vermont

(1997), his wife Bonnie in 2004, his father Ralph Devenger of

Vermont (2016), his sister Beth Smith of Maryland (2017),

and his great grandson, Aiden Zander Goff. Ralph is survived

by his daughters, Tammie Brummett of Ohio, Colleen

Powers of Nevada, and Jodi Rossik and Kimberly Ramirez,

both of El Paso, Texas. He is also survived by his stepmother

Jane (Benway) Devenger of Vermont; brothers, Louis Taylor

of Colorado, Lance Devenger of Texas, and JC Devenger of

Maryland; sisters, Louise Grimes of Colorado, and Dixie

Mercier and Corinne Brochu, both of Vermont, along with

numerous beloved grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, who

he kept in touch with, despite the distance, over social media.

In lieu of a formal funeral, the family will honor Ralph’s

wishes by joining together this fall to celebrate his life and

spread his ashes in a special place which held many of his

best memories. In lieu of flowers, Ralph’s daughters request

instead that you honor him by donating to the El Paso

Humane Society, a non-profit that was near and dear to his

heart. Their address is 4991 Fred Wilson Avenue, El Paso,

Texas 79906.

Donald H. Ruggles

MONTPELIER — Donald H.

Ruggles, 86, passed away surrounded

by family and close friends on

Sunday, July 25, 2021. Don was the business

owner along with his son, Tip, of

Somers & Sons Hardware - an iconic,

old-fashioned, top-notch customer service

hardware and gift store in the

Capital City of Montpelier. Don was

born in January 1935 in the snowy hills

of Marshfield. He was one of four children

born to his late parents, Howard and Susan (Parker)

Ruggles. Don attended Montpelier schools and graduated in

1954 from Montpelier High School. He served in the National

Guard. In 1957, he married Pauline (Smith) Ruggles, the

mother of his two children. Later on in life, he married Lois

(Boyce) Ruggles from Northfield. Don was then hired by

Harold Somers for a two-week job in the tin shop upstairs. He

then asked him to help with the making of cabinets and shelving

for the store. Then, Harold kept him on as a full-time

employee. Don, losing his dad at an early age, looked up to

Harold as a father figure. He tried to learn all he could about

everything they sold. As Harold’s health declined, Don purchased

the store, and he even kept Esther Somers on until her

health declined, as well. As Don expanded the store, he

brought in his son, Tip, and he made it another father-and-son

business. Later, his daughter, and even grandchildren, joined

in as the business grew. Don was a true people person. He

believed customer service was to be first and foremost to

keep your business on top. He also expanded the business to

include things that people wanted year-round, not just seasonal,

which included four floors of items, bringing forth the

slogan, “If we don’t have it, you probably don’t need it.” If you

were lucky, he would take you on the search for your item

with him and show you the old store and tin shop on the upper

floors. Also, many times, he would go to customers’ houses

after store hours if you were still having DIY problems with

your project and help you finish it. Don was in many clubs

and organizations throughout his life from bowling to snowmobiling.

But his last one was the Aurora Lodge #22 F&AM,

which he truly enjoyed with his son, Tip, and many other

close family and friends. Don was an avid clock collector,

from very old to new; and he loved working on them. Also, he

enjoyed crafting, hooking his own rugs, quilting, sewing, and

much more. Any Sunday afternoon you could catch him,

antiquing or at flea markets or lawn sales, with his pocket of

notes for things people wanted him to find for them. Don

loved to be busy, and be around people whether bowling, or

going to the auto races three to four times per week. He would

stuff the car with people and head out. Even after the closing

of the store, he went into volunteering at Woodridge Nursing

Home, doing anything needed from calling bingo games to

bringing residents to and from events. Until his accident, he

was helping at the Montpelier Senior Center with preparing

meals and clean up. Don leaves his two children, Donald E.

Ruggles known to most as “Tip”; a daughter, Barbara, and her

husband, Scott, all of Montpelier; two grandchildren,

Kimberly, and her husband Lawrence of Vermont; Kristopher,

and his wife, Trish; and his first great-granddaughter,

Carolina June Goodrich, who will be joining the family in a

few, short months, all of North Carolina. Don knew about the

upcoming of his first great-granddaughter, but sadly could

not be here to meet her. He is also survived by brothers

Harold E. Ruggles, of the Woodridge Nursing Home, and

Francis Ruggles, of Berlin; sister, Lucy Frasier and her husband

Bob, of Colchester. In addition to his parents, he is

predeceased by both his first wife, Pauline (Smith) Ruggles,

and second wife Lois (Boyce) Ruggles, and sister-in-law

Agnes (Duffy) Ruggles. The family wishes to thank Dr.

Calvin Gilkey, Abby, Elaine, and the comfort care team for

their support of Dad and us in those last few days, and the

nurses in the ICU, and the nurses on 2 South that weekend for

their constant care and support of Dad and us afterward.

Also, Mr. Gesualdo Schneider of St. Augustine’s Catholic

Church in Montpelier, for his time, blessings, and prayers he

bestowed upon Don and family; and all the friends and family

who called and stopped by to pray and support Dad at that

time. Also, close friends, Sharon, and Tom Vivian Sr. for their

love, prayers, and support right to Dad’s final hour and after;

and Dr. Anthony Williams and his staff for the many years of

care they provided for Don, and Central Vermont Home

Health and Hospice for their endless care of Don the last few

years. Also, to Dennis Maranville who helped with trips to

health appointments. A special thank you to our Aunt Lucy

Frasier who has made tireless trips to support us during the

loss of both of our parents; and all else in between, and your

support and all you do for us. We love and thank you for it all.

Any memorial contributions may be made to the Montpelier

Vermont Medical Society Signs Joint National

Statement Supporting COVID-19 Vaccination

Mandate for All Health Care Workers

The Vermont Medical Society (VMS),

which represents 2,400 physicians and physician

assistants across Vermont, has signed

onto a joint statement urging that employers

mandate COVID-19 vaccination for all workers

in health care and long-term care settings.

The joint statement was issued early last

week in response to the recent resurgence of

COVID-19, driven by the delta variant, and

has received support from over 100 health

care organizations and societies. After unanimous

approval from the VMS Council, the

VMS joins health care organizations from

across the nation in becoming a signatory,

including: the American Medical Association

(AMA), the American Hospital Association

(AHA), the American Academy of Pediatrics

(AAP), the American Psychiatric Association

(APA) and the American Nurses Association

(ANA).

With hospitalizations and deaths once

again rising throughout the United States due

to COVID-19, vaccination is a proven, effective

path to put the pandemic behind us and to

avoid a return to stringent public health measures.

However, many health care and longterm

care workers remain unvaccinated. By

requiring all health care workers to be vaccinated

against COVID-19, they will better

protect themselves and their colleagues from

the virus, along with those who are vulnerable,

like children and the immunocompromised,

their families, and the patients they

care for.

VMS Past-President, Trey Dobson, M.D.

who is the current Chief Medical Officer at

the Southwestern Medical Center in

Bennington, Vermont, underscored this sentiment

and said, “Working in healthcare is an

incredibly difficult and yet rewarding experience.

It is also a privilege, not a right. And

Elders Together Report by Mary Alice

Bisbee (next meeting: Monday, 8/16)

Older Elders gathered on Tuesday, 7/13 to

share thoughts and ideas and to learn some

ways for our aging brains to catch up on technological

advances that, seemingly, have left

some of us behind! Seven of us were honored

to hear from Luke Rackers, Technology

Specialist at the Central VT Council on Aging

(CVCOA). He answered many of the questions

we brought to him and told of CVCOA’s

plans to find community volunteers that can

work one on one with elders with specific

needs. He will get back to us individually.

We also learned about our MSAC

Americorps volunteer, Andrew Gribbin’s

presentations on how to use ZOOM and new

collaborations with a free program for elders,

called Technology for Tomorrow that is

taught on ZOOM. (I attended a class on

Introduction to Search Engines and another

one on called Basic Introduction to Digital

Media Literacy.) More information on these

classes is available in the MSAC newsletter,

Active Times, if you care to join.

Our group is open to all older elders who

like to socialize, drop in from time to time,

discuss issues of concern to our oldest generation

and learn ways to help each other.

Our next meeting will be held on Monday,

August 16th from 1:00-2:30 PM in the

Resource Room at MSAC at 58 Barre

Street. All Central Vermont elders are invited.

You do not need to be a member of MSAC

with that privilege comes certain inherent

responsibilities to do what is necessary and

appropriate to protect the vulnerable population

we serve.”

Vermont has illustrated the effectiveness of

the COVID-19 vaccines, as the high rate of

vaccination among our eligible residents has

largely protected our population from the

severe impacts of the recent surge of the delta

variant in other areas of the country. But, as

our case counts begin to increase, the VMS

believes the health and well-being of Vermont

patients should be prioritized and protected

when seeking health care services.

VMS President Simha Ravven, M.D.,

Chief Medical Officer of the Howard Center

said, “We are extremely fortunate to have

access to these incredibly effective vaccines.

In Vermont we are seeing the weekly data

correlating our high vaccination rates with

low rates of hospitalization and death, even in

the face of increasing cases. We cannot let our

state go backwards in our fight against the

new delta strain and vaccinating all health

care workers will continue to save lives in

Vermont.”

About the Vermont Medical Society: The

Vermont Medical Society is the leading voice

of physicians in the state and is dedicated to

protecting the health of all Vermonters and to

improving the environment in which Vermont

physicians and physician assistants practice

medicine. The Society serves its 2,400 members

By Vermont Deputy Secretary of State Chris Winters

As Vermonters, we are fortunate to have a state government

that believes voting is a right, not a privilege. One that takes

seriously the Constitutional command to carefully protect the

right to vote; the right from which all other rights flow.

Online voter registration, same day registration, early voting,

no-excuse absentee voting, automatic voter registration

and now universally mailed ballots are all initiatives expanding

registration numbers and access to the ballot box.

As Deputy Secretary of State, I’m proud of the efforts our

office has made to ensure every eligible voter is able to cast a

vote. Vermont has one of the highest voter registration rates in

the country and our participation rates are generally top ten,

but with so many registered voters, why aren’t we doing better

at getting a higher percentage of Vermonters to the ballot box?

Lately I have been considering this question alongside

another crisis we are facing: a declining public trust in our

government and institutions.

Surveys are showing that across the country, people are losing

faith in our government. Many are also losing faith in our

courts, our institutions, our elections, and sometimes, it seems,

in the very ideas upon which America was founded.

It’s not a great feeling to work so hard to serve the state you

love, only to find that public confidence in the work you do is

slipping away. We believe in transparency and we aren’t afraid

of hard questions based in genuine concern, truth and evidence,

but to those who aren’t involved regularly or familiar

with the functions of our government, it’s easy to become

cynical. What can we do to restore the public’s trust in the

ideals of American democracy?

I believe these issues are related and can both be addressed

by investing in the civic education of the next generation of

voters.

Knowledge about government doesn’t come naturally; it is

earned and learned. Unfortunately, in the era of “no child left

behind,” we have seen the subject disappear from school curriculums

with the shift toward teaching subjects on the standardized

tests, of which civics is not one.

It is important we all understand the strengths of American

democracy, as well as its weaknesses. If we are to work

together as a nation to address the limits of ‘the great experiment,’

and ensure our government is truly created of, by and

for the people, having equitable access to civics education is a

“It’s Not Easy Being Green”

By G. E. Shuman

So, while I was in the

shower this morning,

(Yes, this is how I’m

starting this column,) a

song came to mind. It’s a

song that you have heard a million times; one

that has, since that shower, been ceaselessly

swirling around in my mind.

You already guessed what that song is, (If

not, check the title above) and now it is

probably ceaselessly swirling around in

your mind, too. Sorry. There is just nothing like spending a

day thinking of good old Kermit the frog singing away at the

top of his little froggy lungs. Again, sorry.

As I write this, the summer sun is struggling to shine outside.

The spring and summer of 2021 have been the rainiest,

darkest, coolest that I can remember. I know that some years,

• • •

Vermont’s Civic Future

crucial starting point. Without a basic understanding of our

founding documents and the layers of federal, state and local

government, it’s nearly impossible to have the hard conversations

we need to have to rebuild that trust.

We are living in the most politically and socially divisive

times I have ever experienced. There too, civics can help. It is

imperative that we teach civility and humility, dissent and

debate, and instill the ability to problem-solve with our neighbors

without labeling them as enemies.

Through civics, we can gain an appreciation for free

speech, assembly, and protest, but just as important we learn

about civil discourse, debate, compromise, and how to engage

with others who may not agree with you.

A civic education can provide the tools we need to control

the worst in human nature. We must learn and understand our

rights, authorities and our power, or they will be taken away

from us. It’s a skill we all need to develop, and one we need

to use regularly to prevent losing it.

Our goal should not just be 100% voter participation,

though we will continue to strive for it. Fortunately, civics is

not just solely about voting and election day. It’s about being

an engaged Vermonter driven to not only to vote but to volunteer,

go to public meetings, run for office, and serve in other

ways as an active member of the community.

That is why the Secretary of State’s Office is committed to

reviving its civics education programs and resources. We will

leverage our knowledge of elections and the wonderful history

of our Vermont State Archives to produce materials for

teachers to use and for all to enjoy.

We have started the process of convening stakeholders to

assist us in this critical mission, and welcome both your input

and participation. We are seeking funding and additional partners

so if you have interest or an idea, please reach out.

While the challenges facing our democracy right now loom

large, by investing in Vermont’s civic future we can ensure the

next generation of voters have the tools needed to restore faith

in democracy and ensure we are truly living up to our democratic

ideals.

Chris Winters is the Vermont Deputy Secretary of State,

serving under Secretary of State Jim Condos. He has served

in the Secretary of State’s office since 1997. Chris grew up in

Williamstown and now lives in Berlin, where he has been a

what are supposed to be the warmer seasons here in

the North come along and feel more like fall. This

year is one of those years.

Still, looking on the bright side, (If not of the

sun, at least of the situation) everywhere I have

been here in northern New England this summer

is simply bursting with green plant life. The tree

leaves are huge and of a thousand different

greens; the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye.

(I heard that someplace before.) Lawns are

lush, flower and veggie gardens are gorgeous,

and the hills are alive! (I heard that someplace before, too.)

If there is a point to what you have just read, and I think

there is, it is that into each life a little rain must fall. (Okay, so

next time I’ll use more of my own words.) If, when you look

out the window tomorrow morning, it is a dark and rainy day,

remember that it’s worth it. It’s not easy being green.


Mayor’s Report – July 2021

Residents and Neighbors,

Although it’s been two years

since we have celebrated the

Barre Heritage Festival, the

Barre Partnership has still been working

hard to expand the Farmers Market

and Food Truck Thursdays with the

Concerts in the Park series. About a

year ago, in an effort to help restaurants stay open, Keith

Paxman along with Tracie Lewis proposed establishing Food

Truck Thursdays in Currier Park and it has been a great addition

to events here in Barre City.

Paving has been able to happen on Perry and Camp Streets

but, with the rainy July weather, the painting of crosswalks

has yet to be completed. Weather was good on the weekend of

July 24th and 1,141 tires were turned in during the free tire

disposal day for City residents. Council is seeking residents to

participate in both a new Manager’s Search Committee and

Homelessness Task Force. These bodies of the city are limited

in service and outreach will continue until August 27th to fill

the seats.

Council received a presentation from Lisa Liotta and

Brenna Toman from the CVSWMD. They plan to create a

household hazardous waste facility to consolidate their oneday

collections held throughout the district. Tammy Menard

also spoke on living in local motels through the state’s homelessness

program during the pandemic. She expressed concerns

with violence in the motels, the upcoming end of the

voucher program, and need for people to have safe access to

How do you change your society for the better?

Will you make things better by hitting the streets to

protest and riot? Almost certainly not. Will you make

things better by putting a poster on your front lawn announcing

that you’ve discovered which organizations needs to be

defunded? Nope. Will you make things better by voting? Hey,

anything’s possible.

I don’t have the answer. I have no idea how to make things

better. I guess if I had the passion and the guts to try to change

the world I’d follow Mahatma Gandhi’s example.

“Gandhi” is a long but enjoyable drama. The film shows us

how one man took on the British Empire and outsmarted the

colonizers at every turn.

When we meet Gandhi (Ben Kingsley), he is an attorney

fresh out of London law school, headed to his first job in

South Africa. He quickly learns that Indians are severely

oppressed in British South Africa.

In his first major act of resistance, Gandhi leads a protest

against the ID Cards that all Indians have to carry as a way of

limiting their freedom of movement. A mounted British officer

threatens any Indian who burns his ID Card. Gandhi

bravely does it, anyway, and gets beaten to a pulp.

The incident taught young Gandhi some important lessons.

If you are brave enough to accept beatings and arrest, the

authorities are powerless to stop you. And the media loves a

righteous victim.

When Gandhi moved to India in 1915, he was already in his

40s and an international celebrity. His goal wasn’t equal rights

for Indians; he wanted to force the British to leave the subcontinent

forever.

sanitary facilities, water, Wi-Fi and electricity. She stressed

the need for police as well as mental health and drug counseling

as part of the services moving forward.

Gandhi’s plan was to empower Indian peasants to take control

of their economic lives while making colonialism less

profitable for British globalists. Buy Indian, Hire Indian.

First, he inspired Indians to burn all of their clothes that

were made in England and use spinning looms to fashion their

own humble garments.

Then, he famously marched to the sea to collect and sell

salt. He urged his countrymen to the do the same. Colonial law

gave the British a monopoly on selling salt. Gandhi busted the

monopoly, robbing the British of even more revenue.

Director Richard Attenborough does a fantastic job of

showing that Mahatma Gandhi was a shrewd and inventive

revolutionary leader. It’s actually a little disgusting that college

kids have posters of Che Guevara on their wall instead of

Gandhi.

“Gandhi” isn’t cinema at its best. But Mahatma Gandhi was

humanity at its best. With just his savvy and his will, Gandhi

accomplished more than a million protestors or 150 million

voters.

With Multiple Expanded Federal Unemployment Benefits Set

to Expire by September 5, 2021, Department of Labor

Increases Outreach and Assistance

The Vermont Department of Labor is reminding claimants

the federal expansion of unemployment insurance benefits

created under the CARES Act will end September 5, 2021.

This includes Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA),

Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC),

and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation

(PEUC). The Department will be increasing outreach and

assistance to help claimants transition into the workforce or

find training or educational opportunities.

“The federal CARES Act programs played an important

role in providing temporary assistance to make sure Vermont

workers were supported during a time of great uncertainty

throughout the last seventeen months,” said Commissioner

Michael Harrington. “Since March 2020, the Department has

issued over $2.3 million in unique benefit payments to more

than 100,000 Vermonters totaling over $1.7 billion.”

The week that ends September 4 will mark the final week

for CARES Act programs. This means claimants will collect

their final CARES Act benefits the week of September 5 - 10,

when they file their weekly claim – for those in PUA and

PEUC, this will be their last weekly claim.

The conclusion of the federal program will affect the

roughly 12,000 claimants filing in PUA and PEUC who will

no longer be eligible to file for benefits. This will also affect

the 5,500 claimants currently in regular unemployment insurance

(those in their initial 26 weeks of filing) but to a different

degree. Those individuals will continue to collect benefits as

they are eligible under regular unemployment, but they will

• • •

no longer see the FPUC supplement, which provided an additional

$300 per week.

“As these federal programs end, we know we have more

work to do. The Department, and especially our Workforce

Development team, are already connecting with claimants

and employers to help people get back into the workforce and

minimize the impact of this change in benefits,” said

Harrington.

The Department has continued to connect with unemployment

insurance claimants through direct email and phone

outreach to provide information on how the end of federal

benefits will impact them, as well as what workforce development

support services are available to assist them with reemployment.

Workforce Development team members are located at Job

Centers now open for expanded hours across the state and are

available for both virtual and in-person career consultations.

Local career specialists can assist jobseekers in finding career

and training opportunities, as well as employers looking for

talent through job promotion, hiring events, and applicant

referrals. Local and statewide teams continue to hold weekly

virtual workshops and events, including sessions on resume

writing, re-employment strategies, and virtual job fairs. Learn

more at Labor.Vermont.gov/Jobs.

For more information on the Department of Labor, including

additional details on the impact of the end of CARES Act

programs and resources available to those impacted, please

Choosing

Healthy

Meals

Eating healthy begins at home

with you. As you get older,

you need to be mindful of the

food you put in your body.

You don’t have to begin a

crazy diet or crazy workout

routine to be healthy.

Being healthy can be as simple as eating better food and

maintaining a healthy weight.

KNOW YOUR PLATE

Healthy eating changes as you get older. As you grow

older, your metabolism slows down, so you need to take

in fewer calories than you did in the past. Your body also

needs to take in as much nutrients as it can. This means eating

the best and healthiest foods that will give you the best

nutritional value.

A part of this is knowing your plate and knowing what

you take in every day.

Everyone remembers the food pyramid and what it contains,

but the United States Department of Agriculture has

began a new simpler way for people to see what they should

eat each day called MyPlate.

The program helps people find out what they should be

eating and about how much of a certain item they should

each at a time, making it easier for you to head down to

your local grocery store with confidence knowing you have

a list of what you need and how much of it.

EAT IN MODERATION

Eating healthy all the time can be tiring and, after a while,

all the healthy foods you can become tasteless and aggravating.

It’s OK to eat out at your favorite fast food place

or even have a burger and some fries. Just remember to eat

those types of food in moderation, maybe once every week

or two.

It’s important to also monitor how much of a unhealthy

food you eat a day. Don’t spend a whole day eating unhealthy

foods that will break your diet.

Begin the day off with a heathy oatmeal and fruits for

breakfast and eat the burger for dinner or you can switch it

up with a pancake, sausage and egg breakfast and a wholesome

salad for dinner.

You don’t have to drive yourself crazy to be healthy and

you can still all the foods you love, just in moderation.

Pasta Salads

Cool and refreshing, pasta salads are a

great dish to showcase the best vegetables

summer has to offer.

The basic building blocks of a great pasta salad are a

good quality pasta, a dressing and loads of crunchy fresh

veggies. Once you’ve got that down, you can unleash

spices, herbs and let your imagi nation — and your taste

buds — run wild.

PICK A PASTA

Spaghetti and linguine are amazing, just not in a salad.

You want small pieces with lots of nooks and crannies to

soak up your dressing. Think rotini, farfalle and similar

shapes.

MAKE YOUR DRESSING

You can use a bottled dressing or you can make your

own. If you decide to DIY, start with something as simple

as oil, vinegar and a handful of herbs. You can add

lemons or limes, or, you can use a creamy mayo-based

sweeter dressing or tangy cream cheese. Let your taste

buds be your guide.

SNAP INTO SOME VEGGIES

Next, add chopped veggies into the mix. Fresh corn kernels

are a great addition, as are cubes of creamy avocado

and slices of fresh, crunchy celery. Don’t forget flavorful

summer tomatoes, chopped spinach, bell pepper, broccoli,

carrots and more. Just make sure you chop them well.

BOW TIE AND SPINACH SALAD

2 cups uncooked multigrain bow tie pasta

1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

6 cups fresh baby spinach

cups fresh broccoli florets

2 plum tomatoes, chopped

1 medium sweet pepper, chopped 1/2 cup cubed partskim

mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup pitted Greek olives, halved 1/4 cup minced fresh

basil

1/3 cup sundried tomato salad dressing

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and

transfer to a large bowl.

2. Add beans, veggies, cheese, olives, basil and pasta.

Drizzle with dressing while pasta is still warm, sprinkle

with salt and toss to coat. Sprinkle with walnuts.

3. Chill and serve.

4 Financial Steps to Take Today When Dealing with Alzheimer’s

If a person close to you has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, it may be time to address some serious

financial uestions. ue to the debilitating nature of Alheimers and related forms of dementia on your loved

ones ability to make sound financial decisions, the sooner you can get financial matters in order the better.

HERE ARE FOUR IMPORTANT STEPS TO TAKE:

#1 – LOOK FOR SIGNS OF UNUSUA

FINANCIAL ACTIVITY

Discrepancies involving money can often be among the

early signs of cognitive challenges for an individual. Red

flags may include difficulty paying a proper amount for an

item, leaving bills unpaid or making out-of-the-ordinary

purchases. If you observe signs of a loss in judgment related

to financial matters, additional action may be required.

#2 – IDENTIFY AND DESIGNATE

A POWER OF ATTORNEY

Many people are reluctant to hand control over of their

personal finances. It’s important to have an honest discussion

with your loved one and help them appreciate the importance

of having somebody in a position to look out for their interests.

Most important is to identify somebody who can be considered

a trusted surrogate to help manage day-to-day money

matters when that becomes necessary. An individual should

be designated as financial power-of-attorney, authorized to

sign checks, pay bills and help keep an eye on the affected

person’s finances. The person designated with power-of-attorney

can ease into the role, only assuming full control when

it becomes absolutely necessary as the person receiving the

diagnosis loses capacity to make rational decisions.

#3 – MAKE SURE PROPER DOCUMENTATION

IS IN PLACE

An individual needs to be considered competent to complete

or update legal paperwork such as wills, trusts and other

estate planning documents. This should include an advanced

health care directive that will indicate the levels of care that

should be followed if health deteriorates. Also check beneficiary

designations on any retirement and financial accounts

as well as life insurance policies. With all relevant documentation,

be sure the information and named beneficiaries are

up-to-date and that proper processes are followed. Check

with an estate planning attorney for help.

#4 – ASSESS COSTS OF CARE AND

HOW IT WILL BE COVERED

A top priority is to determine a strategy for how your loved

one will be cared for, particularly if their cognitive abilities

should deteriorate over time. Will specialized care be

required, either in the home or in a nursing or assisted living

facility? If so, are there resources or long-term care insurance

policies in place to help deal with those costs This will

greatly affect any decisions on a care strategy. Talk to an

elder law attorney about trusts that can be established to provide

for care for the disabled individual while still protecting

the family’s assets.

BE PROACTIVE IN YOUR APPROACH

Waiting too long to address financial considerations after

an Alzheimer’s diagnosis can compound an already stressful

and emotional time. Take steps to get on top of the situation

as soon as you are aware that it could be a problem. Even

establishing a plan for addressing these issues before a form

of dementia is firmly diagnosed makes sense. Consult with

your financial advisor for guidance on how to manage these

challenging times.

Prevent Memory Loss

While we can’t slow down the aging process, there are ways to

protect one of our bodys most valuable assets the memory.

The ational Center for Biotech-nology

Information reports that about 40% of people

ages 65 and older in the United States have

age-associated memory impairment.

or a perspective on why it’s important to

address memory loss issues as soon as they

are noticed, the organization shows startling

statistics about the people who are suffering.

Of the 40% with memory impairment:

• One percent will progress into dementia

each year.

Ten percent are diagnosed with mild cognitive

impairment.

early percent will develop Alzheimer’s

disease annually.

In addition to a strategy set forth by your

doctor, use these tips from the Harvard

Medical School to help preserve and improve

your memory as you age.

ACTIVE LEARNING

Task your mind by performing mental

exercises by participating in new hobbies,

learning different languages and reading

books of differing genres. While at work,

volunteer for projects or roles that involve

skills you aren’t entirely familiar with.

Keep your brain active by partaking in

challenging activities that enable you to

learn new abilities.

PROTECT OVERALL HEALTH

It will be difficult to improve your memory

if your body is suffering from untreated

diseases or illnesses. Many issues associated

with aging can have detrimental effects on

your cognitive ability like:

• Diabetes: Surges in blood sugar have been

shown to harm memory by reducing blood

supply to the brain;

Blood pressure Memory lapses are commonly

caused by the reduced blood supply to

the brain; and

• Depression: Cognitive problems are a common

symptom of depression.

MEMORY COURSES

Under the supervision of a medical expert,

partake in memory-improvement courses. A

good practice is to avoid classes that focus

on computer or concentration games, as reallife

situations can be dramatically different.

Talk to your doctor about finding a course

that enhances your ability to manage everyday

challenges.

DON’T OVERDO IT

When using repetition as a mental exercise,

it’s essential to space out your lessons

over time. If you try to rush and cram memory

practices into a short period, it’s common

for the brain to have difficulty studying.

Harvard suggests that research shows

spaced rehearsal improves recall in both

healthy people and those who struggle with

cognitive problems.

What matters most to you in life?

It’s a big question. But it’s just one of many questions I’ll ask

to better understand you, your goals and your dreams. All to

your risk of health

as pills capsules, powders, gel

capsules or liquids. Many

Here are some tips from health.gov to keep you moving

and active.

BEFORE YOU START

Physical activity is great for people of all ages. But, before

START SLOW

If you have never been very physically active and are

looking to begin, there are some steps you should take to

ease yourself into being active. Begin by aiming for two and

a half hours of moderate activity a week. See how working

out fits into your weekly schedule and what you can take.

You can always add more time of exercise a day as your

body adjust to the workouts.

Choose aerobic activities such as walking fast, dancing,

swimming or raking leaves outside. What matters is

doing activities that will make your heart beat faster. Talk

to your doctor if you have shortness of breath, chest pain or

unplanned weight loss.

ANYTHING IS A WORKOUT

Working out doesn’t necessarily have to be running or

lifting weights. Household chores can be a good workout for

you. Raking leaves, cleaning the house or even doing some

simple balance exercises can be good workout for you. As

long as it gets your body moving and active.

A good workout can be as simple as tossing the ball around

with grandchildren or swimming in a pool.

Health.gov does recommend doing muscle-strengthening

activities at least two days a week.

These kinds of workouts can be anything such as using

bands or hand weights. If you don’t have bands or weights

available you can also use bottles of water or food as weights.

ou can find some inexpensive weights at local outdoor

stores or even your local grocery store.


SENIOR LIVING | PREVENTION

Bladder Health

Your bladder changes

as you get older.

You can’t control

everything that

happens with your

bladder, but there are

precautions you can

take to prevent issues

such as infections

and other problems.

Here are some tips from the

National Institute on Aging to

keep your bladder healthy as

you get older.

DRINK WATER

Water is the liquid of life

and this is especially important

for your bladder. Water is

the best fluid for bladder

health. The NIH says most

healthy people drink six to

eight 8-ounce fluid glasses of

water each day. Water should

be at the least half of your

fluid intake.

For some people, this

amount of water can be harmful,

so it’s important to speak

with your health care provider

about how much water you

should be drinking a day.

If you drink a lot of sodas,

caffeinated drinks or alcohol,

you are not getting the

amount of water intake a day

that you should.

USING THE RESTROOM

If you’re drinking plenty of

water in a day, that means you

will be using the restroom

plenty of times. It’s important

to use the bathroom often and

when needed. NIH suggests

you should urinate at least

every three to four hours.

Holding urine in your bladder

for too long can weaken your

bladder muscles and make a

bladder infection more likely.

It is important to take your

time in the restroom to make

sure you fully empty your

bladder. If urine stays in your

bladder for too long, you can

increase the chances of getting

a bladder infection.

Using the restroom can be

stressful for some seniors. It is

important to make sure you

are as relaxed as you can be

when using the restroom.

Relaxing the muscles around

© ADOBE STOCK

your bladder will make it easier

to empty the bladder.

NIH says hovering over the

toilet for women can make it

hard to relax your muscles, so

it is best to sit on the toilet

seat.

A Matter of Trust

your financial affairs and medical decisions if you

were rendered unable to make them for yourself?

your wishes with a solid estate plan. As an experienced attorney,

SENIOR LIVING | HEALTHY HABITS

Rest Is Important

Rest is not only

important for your

body but it’s also

important for brain

and emotional health.

Sleep.org says getting good

rest and relaxing your muscles

and brain can help restore a

sense of calm during times of

exhaustion, illness or overexertion.

BENEFITS OF SLEEP

Sleep.org says our brains are

dependent on quality sleep,

which helps remove toxins

that accumulate during the

day. Without sleep, our bodies

can’t recover or recharge.

Getting good quality sleep

has a positive effect on your

brain, emotions and body.

Getting good sleep helps your

body’s immune system and

can help protect your body

from disease. Sleep can have a

direct effect on how you feel

during the day. If you aren’t

sleeping well at night, you

won’t be able to tackle the day

effectively.

Sleep.org says deprivation is

linked to lower immunity and

increases inflammation,

which makes us more susceptible

to depression, anxiety

and other mental illnesses.

Sleep also effects your weight

and heart health. Getting

enough sleep helps your body

regulate appetite and burn

more calories.

GETTING MORE SLEEP

If you aren’t getting good

sleep during the night on a

regular basis, there are tips

and tricks you can try to get

you feeling sleepy quicker

and sleeping longer.

Sleep.org shares the following

tips on how you can get

more sleep during the night.

• Avoid using phones, computers

or other devices right

before you go to bed.

• Adopt a relaxing pre-sleep

ritual to help get your mind

and body ready for sleep.

• Exercising during the day

will help you feel more tired

at night.

• Avoid caffeine or tobacco

products before bed.

• Nap less during the day; it

can have a direct effect on

your sleep schedule.

GET MORE REST

Resting during the day can

be as beneficial as getting good

quality sleep. Adopt a rest routine

to help you find a consistent

way to feel more sleepy.

Sleep.org says listening to

music, reading or taking a

relaxing bath will help you

sleep better.

Getting away from your

© ADOBE STOCK

stressful work during the day is

also beneficial for you. When

work becomes overwhelming,

take a few minutes to go for a

walk or listen to music away

from your desk.

Sleep is so important for all

aspects of your health. It’s

important to prioritize it and

make sure you get the sleep

you need to get.

Staying Hydrated in

Summer Heat

If there is any mantra we

need to repeat this summer

it’s this one: drink more liquids.

A university study revealed

that 80% of heat-related

deaths were in people over the age of 60. We need to do everything

we can to avoid dehydration when the weather is hot.

As we age, many of us don’t have the same body temperature

regulation. Poor circulation and lack of thirst can make us

vulnerable to the effects of heat. Of those, lack of thirst is the

easiest to address, and drinking more water doesn’t need to be

a chore. Find out from your doctor just how many ounces you

need to drink in a day. Some medications, such as diuretics,

might change how your body reacts to heat and dehydration.

Ask whether you need an electrolyte-replacement drink for

added potassium and sodium.

By the numbers: Buy several smaller water bottles and fill

with water as many as you need each day to reach the required

number of ounces. Keep them on the kitchen counter, where

you’ll see them. Keep oranges, strawberries and watermelons

handy, or make your own fruit popsicles.

Keep an eye on the TV news and weather. Know what

temperatures and humidity are expected during the day, especially

early afternoon. If you walk for exercise, try to go in the

morning. Make a few calls and find out about any cooling

stations near you, or air-conditioned spaces such as a mall, if

you don’t have air conditioning at home.

Keep the inside temperature as low as possible and close

the drapes on the sunny side of the house. If you have air

conditioning, keep it set at a comfortable temperature and

leave it on.

Remember that you don’t need to wait until you’re thirsty

to drink water.

SENIOR LIVING | MENTAL HEALTH

Stress and Seniors

Stress is the body’s

natural danger alarm.

When your body

sense danger, your

brain sends stress

signals to you muscles

and your adrenaline

starts to pump.

Once your body sense the

danger has passed, your body

goes back to normal. Chronic

stress can be harmful to your

body and even more hazardous

to the elderly.

EFFECTS OF STRESS

Stress changes your body in

many ways. First, chronic

stress can lower the power of

your immune system, leaving

you vulnerable to infections

and disease. Adults are

already more susceptible to

illness due to age-related

problems in the immune system.

This, combined with

chronic stress, can leave your

body even more vulnerable to

illness and disease.

Stress also cause heart

problems. Stress raises your

adrenaline, which in turn,

makes your blood pressure

and heart rate rise. Stress can

cause seniors and adults to

find relief in other activities

such as drinking, smoking or

eating, which can cause even

more harm over time.

In all, stress can make your

body and health change

quicker than you can anticipate,

so it’s important to

know how to regulate and

cope with stress.

COPING WITH STRESS

An increase of stress over

time can result in seniors losing

loved ones, their independence

and their health more

quickly than they want to. It’s

important to know how to

cope and deal with stress in

healthy ways. Here are some

tips to help you manage your

stress in a healthy way.

Working out has been

shown to relieve stress in a

healthy way as well as making

you more healthy.

Picking up a new hobby,

such as painting or walking in

your local park with your dog,

can be a healthy way to get

you out of the house and

away from work life or what

ever is stressing you out.

Getting involved in causes

you care about and volunteering

your time can help

manage your stress while also

making you feel good and

© ADOBE STOCK

making an impact in your

town or society.

Focus on things you can

control and not on things

about life or your day that

you cannot change. Learning

to manage stress can be as

simple and as difficult as

learning to manage your

mind.

Stopping Infections

A young body can fight off most infections pretty easily but, just like

everything else as you get older, it becomes harder for your body to

keep up and fight off illnesses.

Luckily, there are some things you can do

to prevent the spread.

EAT IMMUNE- BOOSTING FOODS

Your diet directly effects your immune

health and the foods you eat can increase its

efficiency. Eating a low-fat, plant-based diet

may help give the immune system a boost.

our immune system relies on white blood

cells to combat bacteria, viruses and other

invaders. People who eat more plants have

been shown to have more effective white

blood cells when compared to non-vegetarians.

Foods high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants

boost immune health. Studies have

shown fruits and vegetables provide nutrients

that can boost immune function.

It’s because they are rich in antioxidants

and nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin

C and vitamin E.

SEE YOUR DOCTOR REGULARLY

As you get older, there are more reasons

for you to get out and go see your doctor. It’s

important to get regular scheduled check ups

with your doctors to make sure you monitor

your health. our body changes day by day

and anything can happen overnight. You may

be wondering how often regular is exactly.

There are a few things to consider when asking

yourself this:

• On your last visit, did your doctor advise

a return date for you?

Did you go back on the return date

• Have you noticed any health change

since the last time you visited?

SLEEP AND THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM

our body needs sleep to function and

sleep is especially important for your immune

system. Sleeping issues are linked

to health problems such as heart disease,

Alzheimer’s disease and obesity.

Lack of sleep can harm immune system by

weakening it’s defenses and making it easier

for your body to catch sickness or colds. Add

more fruits, vegetables, grains and beans to

your diet to help yourself get better, deeper

sleep.

BIRTH

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The following birth announcements were submitted by Gifford Medical Center

on August 1, 2021. Any questions or concerns should be addressed directly to Gifford.

A boy, Cuillin Alexander Brough was born July 21,2021 to

Martha (Rosten) Brough and Bruce Brough of Corinth

A girl, Mia Jane Callahan was born July 26, 2021 to Taylor

(Raiche) Callahan and Joseph Callahan of Rutland

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) You still might have

to deal with some lingering

confusion that marked

a recent workplace situation.

But for the most part,

you should now be well on your way to your next project.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new commitment might

demand more time than you’d expected to have to give it.

But rely on that special Bovine gift for patience, and stick

with it. You’ll be glad you did.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re earning the admiration

of a lot of people who like the way you handle yourself

when your views are on the line. Even one or two of

your detractors are being won over.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking your responsibilities

seriously is what you do. But ease up on the pressure gauge

and make time for much needed R & R. Start by making

this weekend a “just for fun” time zone.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some recently uncovered information

might make a change of plans inevitable. If so,

deal with it as quickly as possible, and then find out what

went wrong and why. What you learn might surprise you.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Aspects favor moving

carefully and deliberately when making any significant

changes. Could be there are more facts you need to know,

which you might overlook if you rush things.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A problem neighbor

might be looking to goad you into an action you don’t want

to take. Ask someone you both respect if he or she would

act as an impartial arbitrator for both of you.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A recent workplace

accomplishment hasn’t been overlooked by those

who watch these things. Meanwhile, start making travel

plans for that much-too-long-deferred trip with someone

special.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Those

money matters continue to move in your favor. Now would

be a good time to start putting some money back into the

house, both for esthetic as well as economic reasons.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A changing

workplace environment can create job pressures. But,

once again, follow the example of your birth sign and take

things a step at a time, like the sure-footed Goat you are.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Cheer up. You

could soon have the funds you need for your worthy project.

Your generous gifts of time and effort are well known,

and someone might decide it’s time to join with you.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your inner scamcatcher

is right on target, and you’re absolutely right to reject

that too-good-to-be-true offer. Meanwhile, something

positive should be making its way to you.

YOU BORN THIS WEEK: You are generous and also

sympathetic to people who find they need the help of other

people. (c) 2021 King Features Synd., Inc.

WAITSFIELD- The Bill Brauer Retrospective celebrates

the career of this nationally recognized Vermont artist with an

exhibition of drawing, paintings and etchings not publicly

shown before. A native New Yorker, Bill Brauer has lived and

worked in Vermont for the past 40 years. Brauer received an

individual grant 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. August 13 to October 11,

2021.

may hang back if other cats are also

ACT & Thunder Road

Announce $5,000 Top Prize at

Labor Day Classic

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Barre’s Thunder

Road have announced the 43rd Berlin Optical Expressions

Labor Day Classic on Sunday, September 5 will pay $5,000 to

the winner. The 200-lap showdown instantly becomes one of

the richest point-counting events of the year on the ACT Late

Model Tour schedule. It will be broadcast live on FloRacing

as part of the track’s live streaming agreement with Thunder

Road.

With the announcement, there are now four ACT-sanctioned

Late Model events in a 29-day span that pay at least $5,000 to

win. The Labor Day Classic is followed by the non-point

Bacon Bowl 200 at Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere on

Saturday, September 11, which pays $10,000 CAN to the winner.

The point-counting schedule resumes with the $5,000-towin

Fall Foliage 200 at White Mountain Motorsports Park on

Sunday, September 26.

The big money continues into the first weekend of October

with the non-point $10,000-to-win Northfield Savings Bank

Vermont Milk Bowl at Thunder Road. All told, there are now

six events on the 2021 ACT schedule paying at least $5,000

winner’s purse.

The non-point Northfield Savings Bank Vermont Milk

Bowl at Thunder Road (October 3) and Bacon Bowl 200 at

Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere (September 11) have top

prizes of $10,000 USD and $10,000 CAN, respectively. With

the announcement, all three ACT-sanctioned Late Model

events in the month of September now are paying at least

$5,000 to win.

More than $30,000 in total awards have been posted for this

year’s Berlin Optical Expressions Labor Day Classic. In addition

to the $5,000 winner’s purse, the feature will pay $2,500

for second, $1,500 for third, and $500 to take the green flag.

There are also 13 different contingency prizes, a last-chance

qualifier payout, and a portion of the $40,000-plus ACT point

fund. The entry form for the event is available now at www.

acttour.com/forms.

To encourage participation across the ACT Late Model

spectrum, the Labor Day Classic entry includes three provisional

starting spots. One provisional each has been posted for

ACT 100% competitors, Thunder Road Maplewood/Irving

Oil Late Model 100% competitors, and Canadian Late Model

competitors.

The Canadian provisional has been posted in anticipation of

the announced reopening of the USA-Canada border for nonessential

travel on August 9, which would allow Quebecbased

teams and others to compete in USA-based events. For

the Thunder Road Late Model and Canadian Late Model

provisionals to be awarded, at least five eligible drivers each

must attempt to qualify for the Labor Day Classic.

“We wanted to go all-out for this year’s Labor Day Classic,”

Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud said. “Even

with the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve

seen great support this year for the ACT Tour and weekly Late

Model racing, from both teams and fans. We also know

Canadian teams are as anxious to finally compete in ACT

events again as we are to see them there. The Labor Day

Classic is both a ‘thank you’ for those who’ve supported us all

year and an unofficial ‘welcome back’ for our Canadian

friends. It’s also the start of a huge month for Northeast ACT

Late Model teams.”

The Berlin Optical Expression Labor Day Classic debuted

in Thunder Road’s inaugural 1960 season. It was held every

year from 1960 to 1977 for the track’s premier division at the

time. Following a 20-year hiatus, the Labor Day Classic

returned in 1997 and has been run annually ever since.

Previous Labor Day Classic winners include Northeast racing

legends Dave Dion, Jean-Paul Cabana, Nick Sweet, Larry

Demar, Bobby Dragon, and Brian Hoar. Hinesburg, VT’s

Bobby Therrien won the 2020 edition.

The ACT Late Model Tour hits the track at Maine’s Oxford

Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 28 for the Oxford Plains

125. The event is part of the “Night Before the Oxford 250”

program which also includes the PASS Modifieds, Street

Stock Triple Crown Series, Northeast Classic Lites, and

Wicked Good Vintage Racing Association. Post time is to be

announced. Admission is $30 for adults and $15 for kids ages

6-12.

Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6-12, and $30

for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). Advance tickets are

available at www.happsnow.com/event/Thunder-Road-

Speedbowl. All Thunder Road events are also live-streamed

on FloRacing for those with a paid subscription.

How to save up for your first home

Home ownership is a dream for people across the globe. Many people save for

years before buying their first homes, suirreling aay every dollar they can

with the hopes they can one day become homeowners.

But thanks to factors beyond their control, even the most

devoted savers can sometimes feel like their dream of home

ownership may never come true. According to the Pew Research

Center, American workers’ paychecks are larger than

they were 40 years ago, but their purchasing power is essentially

the same. Things aren’t much different in Canada,

where analysis from Statistics Canada and the Bank of Canada

has shown that, since 2015, wage growth in Canada has

been weaker than in the United States.

Various challenges can make it difficult to buy a home.

However, some simple strategies can help prospective home

buyers build their savings as they move closer to the day

when they can call themselves “homeowners.”

Determine where your money is going. If you’re finding

it hard to grow your savings, audit your monthly expenses

to determine where your money is going. Using exclusively

debit or credit cards can simplify this process, as all you need

to do is log into your accounts and see how your money was

spent over a given period. If you routinely use cash to pay

for items, even just to buy coffee on the way to work, keep

a notepad handy so you can jot down each expense. Do this

for a month and then examine how you spent your money.

Chances are you will see various ways to save, and you can

then redirect that money into your savings account.

• Become a more savvy grocery shopper. Another great way

to save more money is to alter something you already do each

month: grocery shopping. If you haven’t already, sign up for

discount clubs at your local grocer. This is a largely effortless

way for shoppers, especially those buying food for families,

to save considerable amounts of money. Shopping sales at

competing grocery stores also can save money.

• Dine in more often. The U.S. Department of Agriculture

says that Americans spend, on average, 6 percent of their

household budgets on food. However, the USDA also notes

that Americans spend 5 percent of their disposable income on

dining out. If these figures mirror your spending habits, you

can nearly cut your food spending in half by dining out less

frequently. That might be a sacrifice for foodies, but it can get

you that much closer to buying your own home.

Saving enough money to purchase your first home is a worthy

effort that can be made easier by employing a few budgetfriendly

strategies

REAL ESTATE

Lighting is a key component

of curb appeal

Curb appeal can affect prospective buyers’

perception of a home. When addressing curb

appeal, homeowners may be inclined to focus

on features that are easily seen from the street

during the day. But what can a homeowner

do to improve on his or her home’s nighttime

aesthetic?

Outdoor lighting is one aspect of curb

appeal that is often overlooked, advises the

home improvement experts at The Spruce.

Homeowners may fail to recognize the importance

of how proper illumination can provide

their homes with a warm glow and make

it look beautiful after the sun has set. For example,

think of how cozy and inviting neighborhoods

appear during the holiday season

when homes are strung with twinkling lights.

Homeowners can replicate that look all year

long with lighting elements.

Lighting for evening hours also helps

maintain a safe environment for people who

are visiting the property. Illuminating walkways

and doorways provides a clearly visible

and safe path to and from the home.

The following are a few ways to improve

outdoor lighting.

• Focus on architectural features. Outdoor

lighting can focus on the external features of

the home’s architectural style. Use light to

draw attention to interesting gables, dramatic

roof lines, dormers, or curved entryways.

• Play up landscaping. Stylish lighting can

highlight trees, shrubs, pathways, gardens,

and all of the elements of softscapes and

hardscapes on a property. The lighting experts

at Vernon Daniel Associates say that

soft lighting can make homes feel warm and

cozy. Uplighting trees or other elements can

add a dramatic effect.

• Light up all doors. Make sure that doors,

both entry and garage, are properly lit for

ease of entry and egress from the home.

Safety.com, a home and personal security

resource, says a home burglary occurs every

15 seconds in the United States. Installing

motion-activated lights or lights on timers

can deter break-ins. Consider using home

automation to control porch lights and other

outdoor lights remotely, if necessary.

• Create entertaining areas. Outdoor lighting

can be used to extend the hours residents can

spend outside. This is great for entertaining

and can be an excellent selling point.

Homeowners are urged not to overlook

outdoor lighting as a vital part of their plan to

improve curb appeal.

Managing Insects on Vegetables and Herbs

By Melinda Myers

Homegrown fresh vegetables not only taste better; they are

more nutritious. Plus, you can control what products are

applied to the plants to control insect pests and disease.

The first steps to growing a productive vegetable garden

and protecting your harvest begin with proper planning and

care.

Select the most disease-resistant varieties available when

planning your garden.

Then plant them in properly prepared soil with the amount

of sunlight they require. Provide the necessary ongoing care

and your plants will be healthier and better able to tolerate

pest problems.

Even when you do everything right; problems can still

arise. It’s just a part of gardening.

Further reduce the risk with regular visits to the garden.

Check along the stems and under the leaves for any clues that

insect pests have moved into your garden. It is much easier to

manage small populations of harmful pests than after they

have had time to rapidly reproduce.

At the same time, look for lady beetles, green lace wings

and other good guys that eat a variety of garden pests. Leaving

a few pests to attract these good guys is often an easy, yet

effective way to manage the harmful ones.

Enlist the help of songbirds by attracting them with birdbaths

and feeders. Many birds supplement their diets with

insect protein. Just protect young seedlings as many birds also

like fresh greens.

If you need to lend nature a hand, remove small populations

of insects by hand or use a strong blast of water to knock

aphids and mites off plants. This is often enough to manage

the damage and minimize their impact on your garden

harvest.

Barriers of floating row covers can keep cabbage worms,

onion maggots, Japanese beetles, and some other insects from

laying eggs on their favorite plants. Cover the plants with the

fabric at planting, anchor the edges and leave enough slack for

plants to grow. Uncover flowering plants as soon as blossoms

appear if bees are needed for pollination.

Set out yellow bowls filled with soapy water. The yellow

attracts aphids and some other harmful pests. The insects

gravitate toward the yellow, then crash into the soapy water

and die.

If the problem insects are winning the battle, you may be

tempted to reach for chemical controls. Instead, look for the

Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) certification on

product labels. This independent non-profit organization

reviews products for use in organic gardens, production, and

processing.

Summit Year-Round Spray Oil (SummitResponsible

Solutions.com) is an OMRI-certified product labeled for use

on fruits and vegetables as well as ornamentals. It controls

mites, aphids, thrips, and other insects and can be applied

right up to the day of harvest.

As always, read and follow label directions for any organic,

natural, or synthetic chemical used. Heeding label directions

ensures safe application and effective control.

By working with nature and investing some time and creativity

you can safely minimize insect problems and maximize

your garden’s harvest.

UVM Extension Debuts

Pollinator Program

Pollinators are essential to the production of many food

crops, including apples, blueberries, brambles and many

vegetables in Vermont. Although honeybees and several

other wild and domesticated pollinators are at risk or in

decline, by adopting different agricultural and cultural

practices, farmers and other landowners can help ensure

pollinator health.

To support pollinators on farms and in managed landscapes,

University of Vermont (UVM) Extension has

created an applied research and education pollinator program

and a new Extension pollinator support specialist

position, which will be filled by Laura Johnson. The work

will be funded primarily through grants and gifts, including

a $5,000 donation from the Vermont Vegetable and

Berry Growers Association’s board of directors.

In her new role, Johnson will collaborate with existing

UVM programs and statewide partners to promote best

practices for pollinator health in agriculture in the state

and the region. This effort will collect and disseminate

practical information for farmers while also addressing

information gaps through on-farm research. The focus

will be on supporting the well-being of pollinators in the

context of other farm health goals, such as integrated pest

management, soil and water quality and climate change

resilience.

Johnson, who will be based in the UVM Extension

office in Berlin, has a bachelor’s degree in environmental

studies from St. Lawrence University and a master’s

degree in horticulture from New Mexico State University.

She is a Certified Crop Advisor and beekeeper and holds

a Vermont pesticide applicator license.

For more than two years, she also served as an agriculture

extension volunteer in the Peace Corps in Paraguay.

Johnson is not new to UVM Extension, having started

with the Migrant Education program in 2017 before moving

to an agronomy outreach role with the UVM Extension

Center for Sustainable Agriculture.
