In 1916 There Were 14 Passenger Trains a Day Running Through Vermont; Their History is Fascinating

Longtime Amtrak employee and lover of all things railroad,

Bill Brigham, gave a speech in Randolph about the history of

what would become The Vermonter route from Washington,

D.C. to Montreal.

Compass Vermont thanks Ginger Brigham Cook for sharing

her father’s speech with us so that we could share it with you.

Welcome.

There is interesting history here in Randolph.

In 1845 there was a movement headed by Governor Paine

of orthfield to build the railroad from hite iver to s

sex, but the other proposal was to go through the east side

by way of illiamstown ulf.

overnor aine had land and business in orthfield so it

was built his way and through est andolph. y skipping

Montpelier and Barre there were investors in those towns that

weren’t happy to be on a branch line instead of the mainline.

There was a small station built in 1850 along with a freight

house on the other side of the tracks. Parts of the original

freight house were moved across the tracks to be incorporated

into a new structure,

The new station was built in similar in design to ran

don and St. Armand, Quebec. The freight house was built on

the other side where we know it now. est andolph became

Randolph and the town grew towards the railroad.

The new station incorporated a bay window for the operator

to see the trains coming and also the west side of the interior

was for women and the east side was for men. The clock was

given to the station by the local grange and they maintained it

until 1941 when it was given to the town.

It was a manual wind and wound by a town employee once

a week.

People were eager to have a good passenger train service

because of dirt roads and bad tires.

In there were passenger trains a day through an

dolph. In 1931 there were 10 trains a day.

In between, there was the flood which tore out a lot of

track on the railroad. entral ermont couldnt afford to re

build and it was sold at auction to the anadian ational ail

road who financed the reconstruction and service was restored.

There were businesses that used the freight services Salis

bury Furniture, the three milk plants oods, hiting, and

United Farmers, grain and farm supplies astern States,

Dustin, and irthmore, L.. reenwood got farm euipment

on flat cars.

The freight house received damaged freight from the CV in

St. Albans and it was auctioned off here in Randolph under the

canopy at the station.

e bought a bathtub and my wifes desk at those auctions,

but I remember how my father got a case of Corn Flakes that

seemed to go on forever.

Over the years there have been special movements. One that

comes to mind is a train made up of 39 Pullman cars that were

going to Halifax to pick up stranded passengers because there

Bill Brigham

was a dock strike in New York.

In 1965 there were still six passenger trains a day. One event

that I remember occurred when my sister and I were on the

train to Bethel where we went for piano lessons each week.

There were often four or five men in three piece suits and hats

who would get on here in Randolph and get off in Bethel.

hen my lesson was over I would walk back to the station

and they would be sitting against the fence with paper bags.

I would go into the station to hear the telegraph and the bell

that would ring when a train cleared Roxbury, and read old

timetables from other railroads.

The train would come in and we and the men would get on

the train. The men then would proceed to give the conductor a

hard time all the way to Randolph.

Later I learned andolph was a dry town and ethel

wet. After a few minutes, the conductor would open the car

door and call out andolphandolph. ack then there was

a gum machine on the side of the station which for a penny

you could get a wrapped piece of gum.

There was a guy who would get off the Railway Postal car

and pick up the mail from the east and west mailboxes that

were on each end of the platform. In the springtime chicks

would come in (the peep chorus) and be in the waiting room

until they were picked up.

In 1955 there were three sections of the Barnum and Bailey

circus train that came through with steam engines. e went to

the Circus in Montpelier that night.

In 1995 the word came down that they were going to close

down the Montrealer and it was fought for but lost. But the

State of ermont came up with a plan to run a statesubsidized

train from St. Albans to Springfield, ass.

I took the last Montrealer south and at St. Albans saw the

euipment for the ew ermonter. The next day it was wel

comed at various stations on the route.

Later I heard indsor was applying for a stop, I thought

andolph is halfway between ontpelier Jct. and hite iver

Jct. and Carolyn Tonelli who represented the village trustees

town government, applied for a stop in Randolph.

Senator Aiken had said many people who had moved to

ermont wanted to travel back to ew York and so that philos

ophy was in place ... The stop was granted thanks to a heavy

Randolph lobbying effort. Train travel is comfortable in wide

seats and ample legroom. You can get up and walk. The ride is

smooth because of the use of welded rail. If you are going to

the cities on the Northeast Corridor, the Vermonter is the way

to go. hen gas prices rise, it looks more financially attrac

tive. There are snacks and IFI on board. So next time I urge

you to take the Vermonter, which can take you all the way to

ashington, D.

Green Mountain Power (GMP) is reminding customers that

$55 million in free grant money is available for a limited time

to help renters, homeowners, businesses and farms get caught

up on overdue utility bills tied to the pandemic. Customers can

apply for grants through the Vermont Department of Public

Service through ct. , and ualified customers can use the

money to pay past-due landline phone, electric, natural gas

and water service bills. Up to $10,000 is available for residential

customers, up to $50,000 is available for businesses,

and a grant program specifically for ermonters who rent their

homes can help pay rent as well as utilities.

“We want to make sure our customers know this money is

available, and they should apply now because it is first come,

first served. ore than , customers have fallen

at least two months behind on their accounts during the pandemic,

yet only about 2,000 have applied for these new assistance

programs. This free grant money from the state can

be a big help in getting out of debt, and we’d hate for anyone

to miss out,” said Steve Costello, a GMP vice president who

is leading the outreach effort to help customers get caught up.

aking sure those in need are connected with financial assis

tance available also helps to reduce potential future costs for

all other GMP customers.

The Vermont Department of Public Service grants do not

have to be repaid. Customers can apply online or call the department.

has fallen behind to call us! We can help connect you with

these state grant programs, other resources to help, and we can

set up no-interest payment plans to spread out the balance over

an amount of time that works for you,” said Costello.

Vermont Judiciary Completes

Implementation of Electronic Filing and a

Next Generation Case Management System

The Vermont Judiciary announced it has

completed the phased-in implementation of

its Next Generation Case Management System

(NG-CMS), also known as “Odyssey,”

which includes the Judiciarys electronic fil

ing efiling component. This marks the final

milestone in the multi-year technology and

transformation project. ith the unveiling of

the new system in the Supreme Court, the Judiciary

now has all of its dockets throughout

the state on the new platform.

“From the outset of this work, our goal

was to improve access to documents and ease

the record filing process for the public while

creating greater efficiencies for judges and

court staff, said atricia abel, State ourt

Administrator. The judiciary deals with

complicated matters each and every day, but

implementing an IT project of this scope and

impact was particularly challenging and that

is why we are so thrilled to have it success

fully completed. e know it will improve the

experience for those who interact with us.

From the inception of the project, the Judiciary

consciously chose a phased-in implementation

approach to manage risk and limit

disruptions across the judiciary and allow for

needed improvements along the way. As the

COVID-19 pandemic took hold in Vermont

in early 2020 and the judiciary was forced to

transition proceedings to virtual formats, this

• • •

project, and others like it designed to lever

age technology to improve access, became

essential.

The new system has gotten positive re

views from users. filing will have real ben

efits for attorneys and clients. e can review

case documents online at any time and file

briefs remotely from our officesno printing

reuired. Learning a new system always has

its challenges, and this is no exception, but the

adjustment will pay off with greater efficien

cy for attorneys and the court,” said Bridget

Asay, an appellate attorney in private practice.

The completion of the NG-CMS project

represents a commitment to learn from and

improve on the previous attempt to replace

the judiciarys legacy paperbased TADS

system, which occurred about a decade ago.

This new technology platform is a critical

piece of infrastructure that will not only help

the judiciary to a more paperless environ

ment, it will also enhance access to justice and

improve operational efficiency.

The judiciary will continue to evolve and

improve to ensure ermonters can access jus

tice conveniently and efficiently. This project

is a critical step toward that goal, abel con

cluded.

Heavy Rain Doesn’t Stop Vermonters from Lining I-89

to Pay Tribute to Corpsman Cory Green

By CompassVermont.com

Tropical Storm Fred was no match for Vermonters on

Thursday, August 19, intent on showing their appreciation

for American soldiers and one in particular, Navy Corpsman

Cory Green.

A decorated Afghan War veteran, Green died on August 5

after a long post-war battle with PTSD.

Crowds assembled in view of southbound Interstate 89 as

Green’s body was transported from Colchester to Randolph,

home of the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetary.

They gathered on overpasses, exits, and rest area access

roads, waving American flags of all sizes as pouring rain

kicked up spray on the highway below.

Nearly every support location was represented by substantial

numbers of first-responders, some with fire trucks or

emergency vehicles and dressed in their telltale high visibility

uniforms.

Dozens of motorcycle riders rode solemnly through the

rain, preceded by a Vermont State Police escort, and followed

by a bus full of Green’s comrades from the military

and countless cars making their way down the highway to

Green’s final resting place.

Vermont Supreme Court

Authorizes the Use of Remote

Civil Jury Trials to Enhance

Access to Justice for Vermonters

The Supreme Court adopted an order establishing a oneyear

pilot project for remote civil jury trials. The move comes

after in-depth work by a committee on how to utilize remote

hearing technology to increase access to justice and address

civil case backlogs—things especially important to the judiciary

as it continues to navigate challenges associated with

COVID-19.

“The judiciary has been using remote technology to facilitate

operations in order to ensure access to justice and continuity

of operations and to promote the health and safety

of judges, staff, and court users during the pandemic,” said

Patricia Gabel, State Court Administrator. “Considering the

ways available technology can assist us in managing our civil

docket is an important step in our ongoing effort to leverage

technology and adapt our operations to changing conditions,”

she said.

Earlier this year the Supreme Court authorized the formation

of a committee to consider whether remote civil jury trials

are a workable option for the judiciary. The committee, which

was chaired by Associate Justice Karen R. Carroll and included

representatives from the judiciary and the Vermont Bar,

studied the issue and produced a detailed protocol for how

remote civil jury trials should be handled in the civil docket.

“We have learned much over the last 17 months and the Supreme

Court wanted to ensure that the judiciary is making the

best use of available technology to support operations—both

now and in the future,” said Associate Justice Karen R. Carroll,

the committee’s chair. “I am very grateful to committee

members for their hard work and contributions to this important

guidance for judges, staff, attorneys, and the public,” she

added.

The Court’s administrative order and the Remote Civil Jury

Trial Protocols are available on the judiciary website.

• • •

Compass Vermont first learned of the initiative to gain visible

support for Green’s journey through a social media post

by Josh Langelier, a lifelong friend of Green and his family,

and reported on his efforts.

Reaction to the article and social media activity was

robust, as folks around the region made plans to gather and

meet to fulfill Langelier’s and the family’s wishes.

Despite the weather, Vermonters came through.

While Cory Green was laid to rest, the effort to help all

Americans understand the challenges faced by soldiers

returning from combat, as well as the very real and tragic

impact of PTSD, continues. Green’s family has asked the

memorials in Green’s name be made to the Josh Pallotta

Fund at Josh’s House, 162 Hegeman Drive, Colchester,

Vermont 05446, an organization dedicated to supporting

soldiers returning from combat.

Compass Vermont will continue to follow this story. 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.

Bi-State Primary Care Association’s Statement in Support of

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements for Health Care Staff

New Hampshire’s and Vermont’s community health centers

are dedicated to protecting the health of their patients, staff,

and communities they serve. They have an integral role in

coordinating an effective public health response to the pandemic

and educating their patients and community members

Both Vermont and New Hampshire Health Departments

continue to emphasize that getting vaccinated is the most

important action our citizens can take to protect the lives of

ourselves and our loved ones. Getting vaccinated is also the

most important step that we can take to end this pandemic and

the need for mitigation measures. urrent ID vac

cines have been evaluated in tens of thousands of participants

in clinical trials, and their record of proven safety and effectiveness

is unwavering: they prevent individuals from becoming

seriously ill, reuiring hospitalization, and dying from the

virus. ational statistics have shown us in recent weeks that

nearly all ID deaths are in those who are not vacci

nated a powerful demonstration that most ID

related deaths could have been avoided.

e are at a critical point in our battle with ID, with

infections dramatically on the rise, largely driven by the Delta

variant. ID vaccines are still estimated to be

effective at preventing infection from the Delta variant and

effective at preventing severe disease. ith cold

weather right around the corner and children heading back to

school, now is the time for everyone who is eligible to get a

vaccine.

Utilizing Montpelier Rec Center Building for Shelter

Barre Gems

By G. E. Shuman

So, after the past several issues containing

the ruminating, codgertating

and philosophizing about everything

from Kermit the Frog, potato salad, and

even the Grand Canyon, I have decided it is time to chat a

moment about some possibly underappreciated

‘gems’ in and surrounding the Barre City

area. I have discovered these gems one at a

time, over the past several years of babysitting

and then child sitting my now five-yearold

granddaughter, Nahla.

You see, five-year-olds really need places

to go and play and exhaust their energy (and

their grandfathers.) Nahla and I have successfully

located just such places; they are the

wonderful neighborhood playgrounds Barre

City and Barre Town have to offer ‘us’ kids.

I may be easily stupefied, (I wonder if I

resemble that word too much.) but I am

amazed at the thoughtfulness, caring, and

hard work that went into the wonderful playgrounds

in and around our small city. Those places show that

local adults and town leaders really do care about our children,

and I and Nahla are grateful for that.

If you are unaware of these great, colorful, safe, and clean

places for your kids and grandkids to burn off a little energy,

I think that you might not have been paying attention. For a

quick tour of the local ‘kid spots’, you might take a short drive

up Trow Hill in Barre to see one with exceptional climbing

gyms, an old-fashioned merry-go-round, a picnic area, a basketball

court, and even chickens that hop over their fence to

visit you, especially if you have something to eat. (Nahla calls

this playground the ‘up’ playground, as it is up a hill.)

Then head up to Websterville for that town’s great playground,

with a super rope climbing rig, basketball, a picnic

• • •

If I recall correctly, years ago there was some sort of effort

by the City of Montpelier to look into other potential uses as

well as request proposals from those who might be interested

in doing something along those lines (other potential uses)

and make proposals to the city concerning it. That did not pan

out.

Given the earnest and passionate discussion concerning

homelessness and related matters during the recent City

Council meeting, I would urge that the City Council strongly

consider offering the Rec Center Building and property

located on Barre Street for the total cost of $1.00 (one dollar)

to those organizations working on housing and homelessness

and their partners with which to create a combination of temporary

shelter, transitional housing that would include a community

room and so on as well as also having some units

available for permanent housing.

Doing something meaningful along these lines could

potentially help address some of the dire unmet needs of those

living unhoused within our community, because it is obvious

that the Good Samaritan Haven Hub project based in Berlin

as well as the Barre Town property will not be enough to meet

the needs that already exists as well as what is coming down

the road, particularly with evictions of those currently housed

in the area.

VSECU Closes Berlin Branch Lobby Services

On August 23rd the Berlin branch of the Vermont State Employees

Credit Union, located at 365 Paine Turnpike North,

shut its doors indefinitely. The difficult decision was made

due to staff shortages. At this time only the lobby of the

branch will be closed – the video teller services and drivethrough

ATM will remain open to members. For members

seeking lobby services, VSECU suggests visiting their Montpelier

branch at 1 Bailey Avenue or one of their many other

branches throughout Vermont.

area, and a huge climber with slides, among other things! (To

Nahla this is the ‘kitty’ playground, because twice a cat has

visited her from a house across the street while we were

there.)

After that go up the hill and down to the Lower Graniteville

playground which features tons of fun things to

play on and even a climber shaped like a rocket

ship! (This one is the ‘rocket playground’ to

Nahla, as you might have guessed.)

To be fair, Northfield also has an unusual and

very interesting playground that Nahla just

loves. This one is the ‘house’ playground because

it features many unusual things to play on and a

Disney-esque playhouse right in the middle.

Now we come to Playground 2000, at the bottom

of the hill which leads to Barre City

Elementary School. This one is the mother of all

neighborhood playgrounds. (Nahla calls it the

‘down’ playground, in that it is down a hill, the

opposite of the ‘up’ playground mentioned

above.) Playground 2000 is huge, with every

type of climber, swing, slide, and twirly-whirly, make-Grandpa-sick-just-watching

things for kids to do. And this place is

much more than a playground, with a skateboard park, a huge

public picnic area, two basketball courts, tennis courts, and

the crème de la crème, (Is there any chance that I spelled that

right?) Barre City’s new, huge, and beautiful, family oriented,

state of the art swimming pool! That place is amazing!

So, I know, summer is going to be over soon. The kids will

be back in school, and moms will eventually stop pulling their

hair out. To everything there is a season. Still, there are weekends,

and there is plenty of good weather left for you and the

kids to visit one of Barre’s gems. Get out there this fall with

your kids, grandkids, basketball, and/or tennis racket and

enjoy those playgrounds!


Reputation or Character, Which One Is More Important?

By Deb Paul

Personally, I feel character is more important than reputation.

Your character shows what and who you really are.

Meanwhile your reputation is merely what others think,

believe, or say you are.

Sometime we fall into the trap of thinking that your success

is your reputation. I believe, ones character is way more

important in defining your success than your reputation will

ever be.

Character defines whom you truly are, regardless of where

you are in life. Your reputation on the other hand, is nothing

more than what people think you are. If you have good character

your reputation will take care of itself. In the end your

reputation will become a product of your character organically.

If you have a good strong character and consistent honorable

behavior it will mean that even insulting remarks will

become meaningless because nobody will believe it. To have

a good reputation isn’t everything, I know plenty of people

who have a stellar reputation and yet they have no character.

The opposite is true as well, there are plenty of people who

have a bad reputation but have an exceptional character.

Character is controlled entirely by you, it is who you are

and cannot be taken away from you by anyone. On the other

hand people can steal your reputation from you. When focusing

solely on reputation there is weakness. Reputation is

something that you have little to no control over.

Being more worried about your reputation means you care

High Noon (1952)

more about the public’s view of you instead of integrity, who

you are.

It can take a lifetime to build reputation, but it can become

destroyed and striped away in an instant. Once your reputation

is lost it can be difficult to regain.

On the other hand, character is forever. Your true character

is shown when no one is looking. Being true to yourself is

when you find your character being tested, by living up to

your responsibilities, and understanding the consequences’ of

your actions. Doing things because they’re the right things to

do and not because it makes you look good or you benefit

from it. Don’t let others set your standards, be true to yourself.

Character is like your word, it is all you have and it defines

who you are and who you will become.

I believe that character is more important than reputation,

don’t take it the wrong way; I also believe that having a good

reputation is also a necessity, it’s just not as important.

Most of the time people may not really know who we are

so they base their judgment merely on others perception. This

way of evaluating and judging other can’t be avoided, that’s

why some people spend most of their time building up a good

reputation, creating a false image of who they truly are.

Having a good reputation may be a wonderful way to open

doors, but only with good character will you be able to keep

the doors open; phonies and con artists are soon found out and

then usually ushered out.

To quote Joan Jett “I don’t give a damn ‘bout my reputation”.

Employee Misclassification Task Force Invites Public Comment

• • •

The Employee Misclassification Task Force will hold two

public hearings on the topic of employee misclassification on

Thursday, August 26, 2021 and Friday, August 27, 2021 from

11a.m.-1p.m. (both days). Any member of the public is welcome

to attend. The Task Force invites testimony from labor

and/or employees on the 26th and employer testimony on the

27th. However, anyone may participate on either or both days,

and the Task Force will hear from anyone on either day if

scheduling conflicts so require. The Task Force will strive to

be as flexible as possible.

Hearings will be online (and recorded) and interested parties

should email Task Force Chair Chris Curtis, Chief of the

Attorney General’s Public Protection Division (christopher.

curtis@vermont.gov) to request a Microsoft Teams meeting

invitation. A physical location for those who require a reasonable

accommodation will also be provided.

The purpose of the hearings is to listen to stakeholders and

any interested members of the public on the topic of employee

misclassification generally. In Act 85, the legislature

requested the Task Force provide feedback and possible recommendations

including, but not limited to, the following:

(1) potential legislative changes to address shortcomings or

difficulties identified by the Task Force in relation to the system

of joint enforcement;

(2) potential legislative changes to enable either the

Commissioner of Labor or the Attorney General to seek the

full, combined range of penalties and remedies that are currently

available to them through joint enforcement;

(3) whether to expand the joint enforcement of the laws

related to employee misclassification to include additional

agencies or departments of the State and potential legislative

changes to accomplish such an expansion;

(4) the possibility of creating a private right of action to

enforce the provisions of 21 V.S.A. chapter 5, subchapters 2

and 3, and 21 V.S.A. chapters 9 and 17 that relate to employee

misclassification; and

(5) the possibility of creating a private attorneys general act

modeled on California law for the enforcement of the provisions

of 21 V.S.A. chapter 5, subchapters 2 and 3, and 21

V.S.A. chapters 9 and 17 that relate to employee misclassification.

Interested parties may wish to bear these topics in mind

when testifying. The Task Force will also accept written testimony

or submissions by email to the Chair: christopher.curtis@vermont.gov.

Written material will be posted online and

made available to the public.

It’s 1897. There are armed ruffians and thugs coming to

take over the town …who can we turn to? Gary Cooper, of

course.

“High Noon” is a fantastic film. On the surface, it’s a wellcrafted,

suspenseful little western.

But there’s more to it than that. Screenwriter Carl Foreman

knew that he was going to be called before the House

Un-American Activities Committee and he knew that he

didn’t want to name names. Soon, Foreman would be blacklisted

Did you know?

The pinnacle of birthday celebrations is when the birthday

cake comes out and party attendees serenade the guest of honor.

The song everyone harmonizes to is among the most widely

recognized and well-loved tunes in the world. The “birthday

song,” also known as “Happy Birthday to You,” is in the public

domain in the United States and the European Union. The

song originally was penned as a classroom greeting song titled

“Good Morning to All,” written by sisters Mildred J. Hill and

Patty Smith Hill. Both were educators and developed unique

teaching strategies to assist students. The song was composed

by Mildred and the lyrics were written by Patty to be used in

kindergarten classrooms.

It is unclear who changed the lyrics and turned the song into

a birthday ditty, as none of the earliest references to the song

included credits or copyright notices. Two tales circulate regarding

the eventual copyright of the song. One has The Summy

Company registering a copyright in 1935, crediting authors

Preston Ware Orem and Mrs. R. R. Forman. The other says

Jessica Hill, sister to Mildred and Patty, who was working with

publisher Clayton F. Summy Company, copyrighted and published

“Happy Birthday to You” in 1935. Eventually Warner

Chappell bought the company that was originally The Summy

Company, and argued the birthday song was under copyright

until 2030, making performances of the song illegal without

paying royalties. However, a federal judge ruled in 2015 that

Warner Chappell’s claim to a copyright on the song was not

valid. The judge ruled its registration only covered a specific

piano version, not the melody and lyrics. Therefore, “Happy

Birthday to You” can be sung both privately and publicly without

being subject to royalties or other restrictions.

uets with your favorite flowers. ick fresh wildflowers or

Combatting more

than just summer

learning loss

Lazy summer days are great for lounging

around the pool. Though such afternoons

are synonymous with summer, failure to flex

cognitive muscles along with physical ones

may lead to struggles when children return to

classrooms.

Summer learning loss, also dubbed summer slide, is

a term used in reference to the loss of academic skills and

knowledge during summer vacations. owever, in addition to

the potential for lost skills from being away from school during

summer breaks, students also may be affected by deficits

that developed due to virtual learning. This summer may be

one best spent catching up on studies.

esearchers have been looking at summer slide since

at least , when one of the first comprehensive studies

on the phenomenon was published. That study indicated

children lose significant knowledge in reading and math over

summer break. ore recently, a A A rowth

assessment found children in third to fifth grades lose, on average,

percent of their schoolyear gains in reading and

percent in math during summer break. A is a research

based, notforprofit organization that creates assessment

solutions that premeasure growth and proficiency.

hile summer learning loss has been widely recognized

for years, a new issue has developed due to the global pandemic.

A shift to hybrid or all virtual learning for significant

portions of the last two school years could have longterm

conseuences for students. A recent study from the Fairfax

ounty ublic Schools ffice of esearch and Strategic

Improvement in irginia found that middle and high school

students have had less academic success as a result of online

learning. The percentage of students with two or more failing

marks increased by percent in the first uarter of the

school year. ertain demographics of students struggled

even more, including students with disabilities, ispanic

students and nglish learner students, according to the report.

hen separating middle school students from high school

students, the former had higher incidences of two or more

failing grades, a percent increase versus percent

increase among high school students.

There are physical conseuences to consider as well.

A recent study from the enters for Disease ontrol and

revention that included , parents whose children were

engaged in online instruction found that students receiving

virtual instruction were more likely than those who received

inperson instruction to report decreased physical activity,

fewer opportunities to socialize with friends and worsened

mental or emotional health overall.

arents who are concerned about their childrens educational

opportunities over the last yearplus may want to

emphasize more smart play this summer. ncourage children

to read more, even if its books of their own choosing, which

they are more likely to complete than books selected for

them. Families also may want to work with tutors to bring

their children back up to level in math and reading proficiency

so students are ready for the new school year when it

begins in August and September.

How To Help Students Improve Their

Focus On Their Studies

Teachers strive to create supportive and challenging classroom environments for their

students. Such settings can bring out the best in students and help them overcome obstacles,

including an inability to focus.

The struggles students can have with focusing on their

studies was apparent during the pandemic. A survey

of more than college students found that percent

were concerned about their ability to maintain their focus

and discipline in remote instructional environments. Though

educators, students and parents are hopeful that remote learning

will soon be a thing of the past, no one is certain about

what lies ahead in regard to the school year. Ideally,

students will be back in school time fulltime five days per

week by the start of the new academic year. owever, theres

no guarantee that will be the case, and students may need

help focusing on their studies.

mphasize one activity at a time. arious studies have

shown that multitasking adversely affects performance and

makes it hard to concentrate. A recent study from researchers

at the assachusetts Institute of Technology found that

performing two or three activities simultaneously puts significantly

more demand on the brain than simply doing those

tasks one after another. All students, and especially those

who are struggling with focus, should be encouraged to take

on one task at a time.

Take breaks. The leveland linic notes that various studies

have found that periodic breaks improve mood, boost

performance and increase a persons ability to concentrate

and pay attention. any students are well acuainted with

lengthy cramming sessions on the eve of a big exam, which

can feel like a rite of passage for high schoolers and college

students. arents and educators can emphasize the importance

of taking breaks during such sessions and how periodic

rest can help improve performance.

Take a piecemeal approach to big tasks. The hild ind

Institute notes that breaking big tasks down into smaller,

more manageable pieces can help kids effectively tackle

more challenging tasks. The piecemeal approach can make

Busy schedules, hybrid learning and

demanding coursework have affected

students’ academic performance over the last

year-plus. The months since a pandemic was

declared in March of 2020 have been unlike

any other, and confronting the academic

challenges of the pandemic may have

adversely affected some students’ grades.

A recent report from the Fairfax County Public Schools

ffice of esearch and Strategic Improvement in irginia

found the number of middle and high school students with

two or more failing marks increased by percent in the first

uarter of the school year compared to the year

prior. ut students grades may slide or they may find certain

school work overly challenging even in normal years. Since

many parents have not seen a periodic table or had to solve

high school math problems in decades, tutors may be just

what students need to regain their academic footing.

Failing grades are not necessarily the most notable indicator

that students can benefit from the services of a tutor. The

rinceton eview says percent of high school students say

homework is their biggest source of stress, and homework

progress can help parents determine if its time to call in a

tutor. Students who find their homework is taking too long,

particularly double or triple the amount of time it once re-

uired, may need some extra help. ere are some additional

indicators that a tutor may be needed.

Declining test scores Some students are simply poor test

takers, but a gradual or sudden decline in test scores may indicate

PET CARE CORNER | THE WORLD

Protect Pets In Hot Weather

Warm weather brings many

changes. Warm weather can make

travel more enjoyable and affords

people more time to comfortably

enjoy the great outdoors.

It’s best to keep safety in mind when soaking up the sun.

That’s important for all members of the family, including

pets. Cats and dogs are as susceptible to heat-related illnesses

as their human companions.

RECOGNIZE HEAT STROKE

Pets can suffer from heat stroke, according to the American

Red Cross. Certain breeds of dogs are highly susceptible,

particularly those with short snouts, such as pugs and bulldogs.

Excessive exercise in hot weather, lack of appropriate

shelter outdoors and leaving a dog in a hot car may precipitate

an episode of heat stroke. It’s important to get the pet out

of direct heat right away and check for signs of shock, which

include seizures, a body temperature of 104 F or higher,

stupor, increased heart rate, or excessive panting. Placing

water-soaked towels on the pet’s feet, head, neck, and abdomen

can bring down its temperature.

BE CAUTIOUS OF HOT SURFACES

Humans wear shoes on their feet for protection, but pets

do not have that luxury. Think about how hot your feet can

feel when you scurry barefoot across hot sand en route to

the shoreline or to cross a deck to get to the pool. When the

sun beats down on surfaces, those surface temperatures rise

quickly. According to a 2010 study by Liberty Home and Pet

Services, at peak afternoon sun and an ambient temperature

of 95 F in southern Florida, the temperature of cement was

measured at 125 F, red brick at 135 F, blacktop at 140 F, and

grass at 102 F. Individuals who think a car is safer for their

dog or cat may be surprised the informal study measured 152

F on seat surfaces.

PROVIDE EXTRA WATER

Its likely you will need to fill your pets water bowls more

frequently in warm weather than during other times of the

year. Be sure to provide constant access to fresh water, even

for young puppies who may be learning to house train.

AVOID CUTTING FUR TOO SHORT

If a veterinarian suggests a hair cut may be beneficial for

keeping a pet cool or comfortable, resist the urge to shave

down to the skin. Having at least one inch of fur will protect

the pet from sunburn.

OUTDOOR HAZARDS

Warm weather may bring out a high number of insects

and wildlife. Use a flea and tick preventative product and

medication to protect against heartworm, which is transmitted

through mosquitoes. Snakes, skunks, raccoons, foxes,

and other animals may be roaming around, and a scuffle with

your pet can result in injury.

Pets need extra care during the warm weather to avoid

damage and sickness from the sun, heat and more.

Ensuring the safety and well-being of a

companion animal is a big responsibility.

Pets need shelter, food, water, and routine

medical care at the very least, and some

extra TLC can always do a pet good as well.

New pet owners may experience some sticker shock after

bringing a furry friend home. According to a Harris Poll

conducted in the spring of 2020 on behalf of TD Ameritrade,

dog owners spent nearly twice as much on their pets

as cat owners — $1,201 verus $687 in a single year. One

area that can be particularly costly is health care, especially

if the pet has a chronic illness or suffers an injury. Pet insurance

is an increasingly viable option for those looking to

defray medical costs for their pets and safeguard them in the

process.

Like other types of insurance, pet insurance is something

pet owners purchase hoping they will never have to use it.

The TD Ameritrade survey found Millennials or GenXers

report spending anywhere from three to 20 times more on

pet insurance than Baby Boomers.

Pet owners have various options in regard to insuring

• • •

Explore The Benefits Of Pet Insurance

their animals. Certain plans only cover veterinary bills that

pertain to accidents and illnesses. Plans that also include

wellness options, like My Pet Protection with Wellness from

Nationwide®, tend to be broader and may cover preventative

visits, flea and tick products, spaying and neutering, and even

dental cleanings.

There are several benefits to getting pet insurance. any

people are not financially prepared for an emergency pet bill

that could cost several thousand dollars. Pet insurance premiums,

which are paid over time, can refund a good percentage

of out-of-pocket costs to the pet owner. Here’s a look at some

of the benefits of pet insurance.

• Pick whichever veterinarian you prefer: Unlike human

health insurance plans that may require you to stay in a specific

network of providers, pet insurance policies enable you

to pick any vet you prefer.

• Insure any age or breed of pet: Pet health insurance providers

will cover older animals. However, premiums will be

lower the earlier you insure your companion animal.

• Arrange a payment plan you can afford: Payment plans

for pet insurance can be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually,

or annually depending on the plan and policy holders’

preferences. That makes it easier to fit pet health care into

your budget.

• Ensures all health needs will be met: Some pet owners

may push off or pick and choose treatments for their pets

depending on the cost of these procedures. Pet insurance may

be the difference between getting your pet the care he or she

needs or delaying getting pets the help they need.

Pet insurance often is a smart investment for those looking

for peace of mind and an affordable way to care for their

companion animals.

“Retrospective Paintings” over thirty years, creating a sort of visual

summary of where one stands at a given time in life. Eight of these

works will be on display through September. City Hall is open weekdays

from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.

The State of Sculpture 2019 an overview of Vermont Sculptors at

Cheryl Betz: On the Periphery Through the month of September,

Front member Cheryl Betz will exhibit mixed-media paintings from

five different series begun during the pandemic. Betz’s work reflects

her interest in the shifting, impermanent nature of form, perception,

and thought, and in all that lies on the periphery of our understanding.

The opening reception will be Friday, September 3rd, 4-7pm.

The gallery is open every Friday 4-7 and Saturday and Sunday 11-5.

The Front info@thefront.com, 802.552.0877, 6 Barre Street. Runs

through September 26.

The Front presents Daryl Burtnett: Respite a solo show of recent

work by the Front member artist. Burtnett’s mixed media works on

paper and canvas draw inspiration from the marks, textures and

imprints time leaves on things and on us. Respite brings together

work from the past several months, sharing works that have brought

solace in these fraught times. Daryl Burtnett: Respite runs March 5th

through November 29th 2021. The Front is open Saturdays and

Sundays 11-2, and Daryl welcomes showings by appointment. Join

us for Daryl’s artist talk via zoom on March 18th at 7:00pm; email

hours by appointment-only anytime, text 802-777-2713.

Exposed 2021 will highlight artists who focus on current political

and social constructs/issues/systems through the relationship of language,

sculpture, and installation; language as culturally specific,

ideological, controversial, challenging, identifying, uniting, and

separating. The works question or identify the disparate ways of

communication. July 10 - October 23, 2021. At the Current, 90 Pond

Street.

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.

Properly pruning tomato plants improves the quality of

your fruit. It creates airflow to keep diseases at bay and

speeds ripening in cold climates. Pruning also prevents

crowding and improves sun exposure, which makes it easier

to spot hornworms and other pests.

Plan this task for a dry day. Be sure to disinfect your pruning

shears with a 10 percent solution of chlorine (one part

chlorine to nine parts water) before you begin.

How you prune a tomato plant depends on its type: determinate

or indeterminate.

Determinate types are recognizable by flowering at the

terminal end of a branch. This signals stems to stop growing.

Determinates grow to a fixed height of about four to five feet.

Blossoms develop at the same time, culminating in a short

harvest period of about three to five weeks.

Indeterminate types have a vining growth habit. Their terminal

buds grow new leaves and branches that progressively

produce blossoms and fruit as the vine grows. Indeterminate

tomatoes have fruit in various stages throughout the growing

season.

If you cannot identify the type by observation, check

the seed packet or plant tag from where you obtained your

tomato plants. Tomato types should be clearly labeled as

determinate or indeterminate on the packaging.

Only minimal pruning should be done on determinate tomatoes

because this type sets a fixed amount of fruit. At this

time in the growing season, pruning determinate tomatoes

should be limited to removing the lower leaves to increase air

circulation and pruning the leaves that touch the soil to avoid

contamination from soil-borne disease. During heavy rains,

this minimizes dirt splashing on the leaves and prevents early

blight.

Indeterminate tomatoes benefit from the removal of their

lower leaves as well as the following pruning guidelines.

Remove auxiliary buds or suckers (the shoots growing in

the angle between the main stem and a leaf stem) to promote

earlier and bigger fruit and to help create airflow potentially

You will need canning jars (inspect for cracks and roughness

on the rim), screw bands, sealing lids, a canning funnel,

a jar lifter or canning tongs, water bath canner with rack and a

food mill or cone strainer (for puree).

Wash jars, lids and rings in soapy water. Rinse well. Cover

with water and bring them to a simmer in a pot of water until

ready to fill. Do not boil.

For all of the following instructions, add two tablespoons

of lemon juice to each quart jar (one tablespoon per pint) to

ensure a safe acidity level.

For whole or cut tomatoes: Submerge clean tomatoes in

boiling water for 30-60 seconds or until the skins begin to

crack. Immerse for a few seconds in cold water. Drain. Cut

out stem. Slip off the skins. Cut as desired.

There are two methods for filling jars. For hot pack, add tomatoes

to a pot of water. Simmer for five minutes. Ladle into

jars. For cold pack, place tomatoes into jars. For either method,

top off jars with hot water, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.

For tomato puree: Core and quarter the unpeeled tomatoes.

How To Prune Tomato Plants

If your tomato plants look overgrown and crowded, now may be a good time

to consider pruning them. Although pruning tomato plants is not required, it is a

good practice to adopt during the growing season.

• • •

Pruning tomato plants improves the quality of the fruit by creating

airflow, which minimizes risk of diseases and hastens ripening.

preventing disease.

Suckers on indeterminates are best pinched off when they

are small. Use your fingers to snip them off. You also can use

clean pruning shears to remove larger suckers.

About a month before your first expected frost, remove the

growing tips of the main stems of indeterminates. This will

signal the plant to stop making flowers and setting new fruit.

Instead, it will use its energy to grow larger established fruit

and speed the ripening process.

You also can prune the crowded leaves at the center of an

indeterminate tomato plant, again to increase airflow. Just be

mindful not to remove the leaves above and below a cluster

of fruit as these leaves provide shade and supply the fruit

with sugar.

Pruning can be intimidating to novice gardeners, but don’t

be afraid to try. You will be rewarded with healthier plants

and juicier fruit.

Canning Fresh Tomatoes

There is no fruit as versatile as a tomato fresh from the

vine. Canning the surplus further expands its versatility to

hearty winter dishes, sauces, soups and juice.

hot puree, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.

The canning process: Fill your canner (with rack) about 1/2

full of water for pints and adjust for quarts so water will be

one inch above the jars. Bring water to and maintain a simmer.

Set a kettle to boil in case you need extra water.

Run a knife up and down the edge of the jar to release

trapped air bubbles. Wipe the jar rim with a clean damp cloth,

add the lid and turn the screw band on just until you feel resistance.

Use tongs to lower each jar into the simmering canner.

Add boiling water to the canner if needed to cover jars by

at least one inch of water. Cover.

Bring to a boil, and then keep the water at a steady, but

gentle, boil for 45 minutes for quarts or 40 minutes for pints.

Remove jars to a towel, leaving at least an inch of space between

each.

Let cool for 12-24 hours. You may hear a popping sound as

they seal. Check each jar by removing the band and pressing

on the center of the lid. A sealed jar lid has no flex to it, and

you can’t lift it off.

Refrigerate or freeze any unsealed jars. Label and store

sealed jars in a cool, dark place. When the north wind blows,

put a pot of soup or chili on to simmer and enjoy the delicious

pleasure that comes with preserving your bounteous harvest.

Sauerkraut:

DIY Fabulous Fermented Food

By Joyce Amsden

Extension Master Gardener Intern

University of Vermont

Fermentation has a long tradition as an effective method of

food preservation. Eating fermented food provides beneficial

bacteria that can help maintain a healthy digestive environment.

Many people find sauerkraut a delicious option.

I learned the traditional method of fermenting cabbage to

make sauerkraut from my mother. It is an easy-to-master

method for preserving cabbage from your garden, farmers

market or grocery store.

I have found that weighing ingredients gives the most consistent

results. Metric weights provide more accurate measurement

and are available on most digital scales.

Cabbage naturally contains lactic-acid bacteria and water.

Adding salt creates a brine, providing an ideal environment

for gut-friendly Lactobacillus bacteria while inhibiting

unwanted yeast and mold.

Too much salt inhibits fermentation while too little can

allow development of pathogens. The correct proportion of

salt to cabbage falls in a range of 1.5–2.5 percent salt to cabbage.

Because various types of salt measure differently, I recommend

using a digital scale to ensure success. Avoid salts with

added ingredients as they can inhibit fermentation. Himalayan

salt is free of additives and found in most grocery stores. I

have found it to be very reliable, especially if no scale is available.

To determine the salt, multiply the amount of cabbage by

the percentage of salt desired. For example, for two percent

salt: cabbage (800 grams) x salt (.02) = 16 g. salt.

To make sauerkraut you will need:

Digital kitchen scale

Cutting board and chef’s knife (or mandolin)

Large mixing bowl

1 quart wide-mouth canning jar with plastic lid

4 oz. jelly jar or fermentation weight (no metal)

A medium fresh cabbage (about 2 lbs. or 900 g.)

About 1 Tbsp. fine Himalayan salt (16 g.)

Keep your hands and equipment squeaky clean throughout

the process.

Using a fresh cabbage ensures adequate brine. Discard any

limp outer leaves. Reserve one nice cabbage leaf. Set the cabbage

on its flat end and cut into quarters.

Slice into very thin ribbons and discard

the core. Place the bowl on

the scale. Turn it on to set it

to zero. Add 800 g. (1

3/4 lb.) cabbage ribbons.

Sprinkle salt over

the cabbage

and mix.

Cover with a

clean towel.

Let stand 30

min.

Pack cabbage in

the jar, pressing down

tightly to remove all air

bubbles. Brine should rise above

the mixture. Top with a section of

reserved leaf. Add the fermentation weight or small jar to

press the cabbage down into the brine. Loosely screw on lid.

Place in a bowl to catch any normal bubbling overflow.

Ideal room temperature is 65-72 degrees Fahrenheit for the

entire four-week process. I have used my oven turned off with

the light on for the entire fermentation with a note on the

controls to remove before heating the oven.

Or place on top of the refrigerator or other warmer location.

Ferment for up to a month. The sauerkraut should be free of

mold, slightly tart and crunchy. Refrigerate for up to one year.

Note that U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines recommend

that a pH of 4.6 or less for the finished product. You

can purchase testing strips online.

ACT Tour Returns from Break with Back-to-Back Big Showdowns

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) is back with a bang

beginning Saturday, August 28 at Maine’s Oxford Plains

Speedway. After a break to catch its breath following a

Midsummer Classic 250 that lived up to its name, the ACT

Late Model Tour has major showdowns on consecutive weekends

at two historic tracks.

The Oxford Plains 125 begins the back-to-back with ACT’s

second visit of the year to the 3/8-mile oval. It’s part of the

“Night Before the Oxford 250”, which ACT has helped

anchor for the last four seasons. Oxford Plains Speedway

event almost always draw big car counts, with regional racers

and part-time competitors joining the likes of D.J. Shaw, Tom

Carey III, Ben Rowe, Derek Gluchacki, and Stephen Donahue.

Eight days later, the Tour ships off to Barre, VT’s Thunder

Road for the $5,000-to-win Optical Expressions Berlin Labor

Day Classic. The 200-lap event begins a stretch of four

straight ACT-sanctioned Late Models events that pay at least

$5,000 to the winner. This “Show Me the Money” stretch

includes the Bacon Bowl 200 at Quebec’s Autodrome

Chaudiere on September 11, the Fall Foliage 200 at New

Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on September

26, and the Northfield Savings Bank Vermont Milk Bowl at

Thunder Road on October 3.

Just five point-counting events remain for the 2021 season.

This means there’s a lot more on the line these next two weekends

than the prize money, trophy, and glory. It also makes

them two pivotal stops in the chase for the 30th ACT Late

Model Tour title. The champion receives $10,000 in cash plus

nearly $2,000 worth of guaranteed contingency awards —

plus the honor of being known as ACT’s best.

The battle for the title is one of the closest in recent memory.

Center Conway, NH’s

D.J. Shaw leads the standings

by just one point over New

Salem, MA’s Tom Carey III.

Turner, ME’s Ben Rowe is a

mere 13 points behind Shaw.

Defending ACT Rookie of

the Year Derek Gluchacki of

North Dartmouth, MA sits 51

points out of first, putting

him one good weekend away

from being a player. Since

large fields are expected at

both Oxford and Thunder

Road, that means large point swings could occur, too.

All four of the top point drivers have enjoyed success at

Oxford Plains Speedway. Shaw and Rowe own numerous Pro

All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model victories at the

track. Rowe also has two ACT victories on the legendary oval,

including one at the 2020 season finale. Carey finished runner-up

to Rowe in that event while Gluchacki scored his first

ACT podium finish at Oxford in July.

Thunder Road figures to be more of a wild card. Rowe and

Shaw each have several top-10 finishes at the quarter-mile

bullring. They took fifth and sixth in May’s Community Bank

N.A. 150, making them the two highest-finishing ACT Tour

regulars. However, they have been shut out of the track’s hallowed

Victory Lane. The closest either came was when Rowe

finished second in the 2007 Vermont Milk Bowl.

Carey and Gluchacki have limited experience at Thunder

Road, with a handful of starts each between ACT Tour,

weekly, and special shows. Both are still looking for their first

top-10 on the high banks. They finished 17th and 13th,

respectively, in the Tour’s first Thunder Road stop of 2021.

The pressure is on both to find some speed for Quarry Hill

— or to run well enough at Oxford that they can build up a

cushion to survive a less-than-stellar Thunder Road outing.

The presence of invaders is another factor in each show. A

strong field of 29 cars were at Oxford Plains Speedway for the

July 11 event with Hermon, ME’s Mike Hopkins going flagto-flag

for the victory. Hopkins has filed an entry for the

Oxford Plains 125 and will go for the season sweep.

Part-time ACT racers like Dylan Payea, Trenton Goodrow,

and Jimmy Renfrew Jr. are strong at Oxford. Several local

tracks that run ACT-type Late Models take Oxford 250 weekend

off, leaving their drivers free to grow the ACT field.

The Optical Expressions Berlin Labor Day Classic at

Thunder Road is expected to be one of the year’s biggest ACT

events. Many weekly Thunder Road Late Model competitors

also compete in Tour events at the track. They’re usually the

ones to beat, too. Nine of the last 10 Thunder Road ACT

events were won by drivers who consider the venue their

home turf. Of the top-seven in current ACT points, fifth-place

Stephen Donahue is the only one who can claim that distinction.

The generous purse, with $5,000 to win and $500 to start,

will also draw cars. A provisional starting spot has been

posted for Canadian teams as long they are able to cross the

border. Canadian participation is eagerly awaited on all sides

as these drivers are itching to

join the New England racing

action.

To top it all off, ACT has

an incredible streak on the

line. The first seven pointcounting

events of 2021 have

seen seven different winners.

This is tied for the secondlongest

run in ACT Late

Model Tour history. An

eighth different winner at

Oxford would match the

record for most consecutive

races without a repeat victor.

In both 2007 and 2014, there

were different winners in the

first eight point-counting

show before the streak was

snapped.

Gluchacki, Donahue,

Payea, and Goodrow are

among the leading candidates

to become winner number

eight. So are brothers Shawn

Swallow and Jamie Swallow

Jr. for any of these six, it

would be their first career

ACT Tour win. Even more

potential contenders could

roll through the gates at

Oxford. This adds to a compelling

two weekends of

competition of ACT teams

and fans.

The ACT Late Model Tour

travels to Maine’s Oxford

Plains Speedway on Saturday,

August 28 at 4:00pm for the

Oxford Plains 125. The event

is part of the “Night Before

the Oxford 250” program that

includes the Modified Racing

Series, PASS Modifieds,

Street Stock Triple Crown,

Northeast Classic Lites, and

Wicked Good Vintage Racing

Association. Admission is

$30 for adults and $15 for

kids ages 6-12.

A live pay-per-view of the

Oxford Plains 125 will be

available on Speed51.TV.

The Labor Day Classic at

Thunder will be live streamed

on FloRacing for those with a

paid subscription.
