Vermont Climate Council Launches Series of Public

Events to Gather Feedback and Ideas for Statewide

Climate Action Plan

From hotter days to more frequent and intense

storms, Vermont’s climate patterns are

clearly shifting and impacting our state. This

fall, state officials, local leaders and members

of the Vermont Climate Council invite the

public to attend one of several events to learn

about the development of the state’s Climate

Action Plan and help prioritize approaches.

“Join us at an upcoming meeting to discuss

how climate change is affecting you and your

community and offer feedback on proposed

strategies for the Climate Action Plan,” said

Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Julie

Moore. “Your perspective matters. The

Climate Action Plan will serve as the State’s

roadmap for lessening the impacts of climate

change, and the ideas and feedback you share

with us will inform the Action Plan.”

In 2020, the Vermont Legislature passed

the Global Warming Solutions Act. The Act

requires Vermonters to reduce greenhouse

gas pollution and helps communities prepare

to face more extreme weather caused by climate

change. The Act also directed the Vermont

Climate Council to develop a Climate

Action Plan to guide this work. The Action

Plan aims to dramatically reduce greenhouse

gas emissions over the next several decades,

prepare and protect Vermont communities

and landscapes from the greatest risks of climate

change and create new jobs to enable

this transformation. The initial plan will be

adopted on December 1, 2021.

While climate change affects everyone,

some people face greater risks due to where

they live, their race, ethnicity, income, disability,

health, age and/or occupation. Advancing

solutions that address the needs of

Vermonters facing the greatest risk is a key

aspect of the plan.

There are multiple opportunities to join an

upcoming event, either online or in person.

All events are free and open to everyone interested

in attending. Food will be provided

at each in-person event. Please note that inperson

events are being held in outdoor pavilions

or shelters and will observe COVID-19

safety protocols; all attendees are asked to

wear masks.

CVDART to

Host Emergency

Pet Sheltering

Training

You have probably seen

or heard about the massive

damage caused by hurricanes

Henri and Ida, the fires in the

West and the torrential rains

in the south. You may know

that organizations exist to

provide temporary housing

for people forced to evacuate

their homes, but are you

aware that Vermont also has

an organization ready to mobilize

to care for your pets in

such a situation?

When families must evacuate

their homes VDART

(Vermont Disaster Animal

Response Team) steps in to

provide emergency shelters

for pets. VDART has teams

across the state trained to deal

with such emergencies. According

to their mission statement:

“Our goal is to provide

uniformity and excellence in

response to animal needs by

training and exercising our

volunteers in best practices,

supporting the development

of regional DART teams

throughout the state, and providing

local emergency managers

with guidance on including

the community’s pet

population in local response

plans.”

Visit their website: https://

vermontdart.org/ for more information.

Recently, hurricane Henri

threatened to hit our area and

VDART alerted team members

to be prepared to mobilize.

If the idea of taking

part in this rewarding work

appeals to you consider attending

the free Emergency

Animal Sheltering (EAS)

training, hosted by CVDART

(Central Vermont Disaster

Animal Response Team).

This is a state wide event,

open to both VDART members

and interested members

of the public. Previous sheltering

experience is not required

to attend.

This will be hands-on training.

Visit https://vermontdart.

org/training-2021/ for more

information and to register.

Open to all. Proof of COVID

vaccination required.


The Vermont Community Foundation

Announces its 14th Round of Grants from the

VT COVID-19 Response Fund

The Vermont Community Foundation has

announced $315,000 in grants to support people

experiencing homelessness, marking the

fourteenth round of grantmaking from the VT

COVID-19 Response Fund. Since it was created

in March 2020 to support a coordinated

response to the pandemic, the VT COVID-19

Response Fund has distributed nearly $9.5

million in grants, seeking to assist with basic

and urgent needs for Vermont’s most vulnerable,

and jumpstarting longer term recovery

and resilience through five initiatives.

“Our fellow Vermonters experiencing

homelessness have been particularly vulnerable

throughout the pandemic and especially

now as some public support services wind

down,” says Dan Smith, president and CEO

of the Vermont Community Foundation. “As

philanthropy has done throughout the last

eighteen months, we continue to see donors

fill the gaps to support those who need it

most—and that is exactly why we created the

VT COVID-19 Response Fund.”

The organizations funded through this

grant round, some of which are past grantees

of the VT COVID-19 Response Fund whose

work has remained steady throughout the

pandemic, provide shelter services, help support

people’s basic needs, provide navigation

to find permanent housing options, support

survivors of domestic and sexual violence,

and more. This funding comes at a time when

a sharp decrease in public dollars available for

emergency housing has led to greater need by

people experiencing homelessness.

“Vermont decision-makers and nonprofit

organizations did heroic and necessary work

to keep our neighbors safely housed during

COVID-19, especially those who were experiencing

homelessness or in tenuous situations,”

says Sarah Waring, vice president of

grants and community investments at the Vermont

Community Foundation. “With the end

of the state of emergency and the accompanying

decrease in public funds available for this

purpose, we heard a real and urgent need to

support the individuals and families who are

in need of housing—and the many organizations

providing support, who are in it for the

long haul.”

The full list of grant recipients for the 14th

round of grants from the VT COVID-19 Response

Fund is below. For a historical overview

of the Fund, visit vermontcf.org/CO-

to get ahead, no matter how hard they

work. We are aligning our time, energy, and

discretionary resources on efforts that provide

access to early care and learning, pathways to

college and career training, support for youth

and families, and community and economic

vitality. We envision Vermont at its best—

where everyone has the opportunity to build

a bright, secure future. Visit vermontcf.org or

Seeking Volunteers for Washington

County Diversion Program

The Washington County Diversion Program is seeking

volunteers to serve on its Community Restorative Panel. The

program is located in Barre and has been serving area communities

for over 40 years. Panel members represent the face

and voice of the community and help participants understand

how their actions have affected others. The base commitment

is three hours per month.

The Diversion Program is a restorative alternative for individuals

charged with a crime. After police issue a citation

for violating the law, the State’s Attorney decides whether to

refer the person out of the court system to the communitybased

Diversion Program. The Restorative Justice approach to

problem solving is based around three basic concepts: When

crime occurs, the focus is on the harms that have been done to

people and relationships as a result of that crime; when harm

has been done, it creates obligations and liabilities; and the

way forward involves engagement between wrongdoers, victims

and the community in an effort to heal the harm and put

things right as much as possible.

If you believe that good people can make bad decisions

and people deserve second chances; that taking responsibility

and being accountable for one’s actions is important; and

the community plays a role in helping individuals address the

harm they have done and make amends, please consider becoming

a volunteer! No experience is required, and training is

provided. Contact Catherine Kalkstein, Executive Director at

catherine@wcdp-vt.org or 802-479-1900.

Good Samaritan Haven New

Owner of Twin City Motel

On August 27, 2021, ood Samaritan Haven finalized its

purchase of the Twin City Motel on the Barre-Montpelier

oad in Berlin. The property will now be known as “ood

Sam at Twin City.” The motel complex buildings are the first

buildings ood Sam has acquired since buying its initial shelter

in 15. In addition to providing critically needed housing,

ood Sam at Twin City will also be a major upgrade in how

Central Vermont serves those who are temporarily experiencing

homelessness.

“The pandemic has been a time of extraordinary upheaval,

with a record number of unsheltered individuals of all ages

seeking help night after night after night,” said ood Samaritan

Haven Executive Director ick DeAngelis. “Yet paradoxically,

the community’s extraordinary outpouring of concern

has created the opportunity to enact long overdue improvements

in how we help our guests get their lives back on track.

That is what we’ll be able to do with ood Sam at Twin City,

and it is all thanks to the generosity of fellow Vermonters.”

Operating as a hub of services for those experiencing homelessness,

the new property will provide 1 rooms with 5 beds

and a welcome center for rest, essentials, and helpful service

connections. The new property will also mark a positive step

forward by:

roviding a safe and trauma-informed (i.e., welcoming and

attractive) building environment

Allowing ood Sam to incorporate supportive services and

day use capacity at the site

Offering shelter with better privacy, which is both advantageous

from a public health perspective and is directly responsive

to our guests’ stated needs and

ositioning guests in an advantageous location near a bus

stop on a main corridor between the county’s two population

centers (near grocery stores, a health clinic, the hospital, and

many other businesses).

“The additional beds are critically needed, but we are really

excited by the dramatic shift in quality and the possibility

of positive connections for our guests. By providing privacy,

safety, and security versus the previous model of guests sleeping

in crowded congregate conditions, we are vastly improving

stability and support for those experiencing homelessness,”

said DeAngelis. “This is a very important development

for all of central Vermont.”

The acquisition of Twin City is especially important now

as the state of Vermont has tightened eligibility standards for

its motel voucher program which has paid for shelter for hundreds

of Vermonters during the pandemic.

More than 00 individuals in Washington County are currently

experiencing homelessness in shelters, motel rooms or

on the streets.

The idea of establishing a hub for homelessness services

arose from a consortium of agencies, faith-based groups, and

others that work to address the issue in Washington County.

Downstreet Housing is partnering with ood Samaritan Haven

in the development of the project. Washington County

Mental Health Services, Capstone Community Action, Family

Center, and Turning oint Center of Central Vermont are service

partners. The Town of Berlin has also been instrumental

in the process, thanks to its timely review and approval of the

project.

Thanks to significant funding from Vermont Housing and

Conservation Board and generous donors, the purchase is final–but

ood Samaritan Haven’s work is unfinished. Extensive

improvements will be made to the property over the next

several months including fire safety, energy efficiency, and development

of a welcome center. The next phases will include

property renovations, hiring staff, and continued fundraising

efforts to pay for upkeep on the property and guest services.

To help ood Samaritan Haven care for our unhoused community

members visit https://www.goodsamaritanhaven.org/

services for people experiencing homelessness in our

work. We are aligning our time, energy, and discretionary

resources on efforts that provide access to early care and

learning, pathways to college and career training, support for

youth and families, and community and economic vitality. We

Vermont Medical Organizations Urge

Continued Masking in Schools

• • •

The American Academy of Pediatrics

Vermont Chapter, Vermont Medical Society,

Vermont Academy of Family Physicians, and

the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital

urge continued universal masking in schools

to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and promote

a healthy, safe, and productive school

year.

While we fully support the administration’s

recommendation that schools require universal

masking of all students and staff regardless

of vaccination status to begin the school

year – we urge continued universal masking

regardless of vaccination status or school vaccination

rate for students and staff until those

under 12 years of age have had the opportunity

to be vaccinated and when epidemiologic

data tells us it is safe to remove masks.

Masking is an important mitigation strategy

to prevent spread of COVID-19 in the

school setting. Masking will also help prevent

the spread of other common respiratory viruses

that can mimic the signs and symptoms of

COVID-19. With COVID-19 cases on the

rise in Vermont, we are already seeing the

effects on schools and classrooms only a few

short days into the school year. Minimizing

disruption to the school year is important for

schools, families, and students.

We also continue to stress the importance

of the stay home when sick guidance as outlined

in the Agency of Education/Department

of Health memo. Students and staff who are

experiencing symptoms should stay home.

The Vermont Child Health Improvement

Program in collaboration with the University

of Vermont Children’s Hospital and the

American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont

Chapter released updated guidance for triage,

evaluation, testing and return to school to

assist clinicians in decision-making.

Finally, thank you to all school personnel

for supporting students’ academic, social,

developmental, mental health and nutritional

needs. These are monumental tasks even in

non-pandemic times. The COVID-19 pandemic

has presented enormous challenges to

educators, education leaders, and school nurses

and we appreciate your extraordinary

efforts. We as medical professionals see all

that you have been doing to make schools a

safe and welcoming place and are so very

grateful for your work.

Vermont Supreme Court Extends its Declaration of

Judicial Emergency Through November 1, 2021

The Vermont Supreme Court has once

again amended its order declaring a Judicial

Emergency. Administrative Order 49, which

was originally adopted in March of 2020,

has been amended numerous times in order

to ensure the Judiciary continues to be responsive

to public health guidance relating

to COVID-19. The current amendments, like

previous measures, aim to protect the health

of Judiciary employees and the public while

providing necessary services and access to

justice for all Vermonters.

The Court’s most recent amendments,

which went into effect on September 1, are

based on the increasing COVID-19 infection

rate and projections of public-health experts

concerning the course of the pandemic. The

amendments extend the effective date of the

order from September 7, 2021, to November

1, 2021. The amendment also provides for the

designation by the State Court Administrator

of certain courthouses as “limited-entry courthouses.”

“This class of courthouses are those that are

not suitable for regular unrestricted in-person

hearings due to limitations in the building’s

air flow systems,” said atricia abel, State

Court Administrator, who explained that with

some exceptions, all hearings to be held in

such buildings must now be scheduled for

remote participation by all parties. “We will

maintain a list of all the courthouses that fall

into this new category on the Judiciary’s website,

along with the number of participants

permitted to be in each building while the order

is in place,” Gabel said.

Gabel noted that while hearings are required

to be held remotely in courthouses

that are designated as limited-entry, they are

encouraged in courthouses that do not fall

into this category. “This means that in-person

hearings will still be taking place in certain

courthouses,” she explained, adding “of

course, where they do they must be in compliance

with the COVID-19 safeguards the Judiciary

has adopted.”

The Court’s amended order makes clear

that the existing provision suspending strict

enforcement of the timelines for responding

to requests for court records extends to administrative

records as well as case records.

In addition, it amends provisions on email filing

and service in light of the implementation

of electronic filing last month.

Gabel has authority under the Court’s order

to develop public health and safety-related

protocols for entry to and conduct in Judiciary

buildings, including screening, social

distancing, masking, and related matters.

She has done so through the issuance of an

Administrative Directive, which has been

amended several times since it was originally

adopted in June of 2020. On September 1,

2021, she amended her directive again. The

latest amendments provide for, among other

things, stricter mask-wearing requirements in

Judiciary buildings, a move made necessary,

according to Gabel, by the level of community

prevalence of the COVID-19 virus. “The

number of positive reported cases of CO-

VID-19 per thousand Vermont residents has

increased to over 20 from a level in June of

fewer than 1,” Gabel said.

The latest version of the Supreme Court’s

order and other information about the Judiciary’s

operations during the pandemic is available

at www.vermontjudiciary.org/covid19.

U.S. Department of Labor Denies

State Supplemental Benefit

The Vermont Department of Labor has been informed that

it will not be allowed to administer a supplemental unemployment

insurance benefit that was passed during the 2021 legislative

session.

Act 51 of 2021 authorized a $25 per week supplemental

benefit for all unemployment claims beginning October 3, to

individuals receiving unemployment benefits in the regular

state unemployment insurance program. However, the

Vermont Department of Labor was formally notified on

September 1 by the United States Department of Labor

(USDOL) that the $25 per week supplemental benefit does

not meet the federal unemployment insurance program

requirements and therefore the State cannot use Unemployment

Trust Fund dollars to cover this benefit, as was intended under

the legislation.

In May 2021, while the General Assembly was considering

this legislation, the Department submitted a formal inquiry to

USDOL for guidance on the creation of a supplemental benefit

prior to it becoming law. The goal was to ensure any law

passed met the federal government’s requirements; however,

USDOL did not respond until after the bill passed both chambers

and went into law.

“The legislative intent was to create a supplemental benefit

structured like the Federal Pandemic Unemployment

Compensation (FPUC) program, which added a flat amount to

each weekly benefit payment. While this is exactly how

USDOL structured FPUC over the last year, we were

informed that a similar state program is not permitted under

federal unemployment insurance law,” said Commissioner

Michael Harrington. “It’s unfortunate we are learning about it

after the law passed, but we must now adapt to ensure we

comply with federal law.”

The Vermont Department of Labor has been in contact with

legislative leadership on this issue.

Updates to the 2021 People’s

United Bank Vermont City

Marathon & Relay in Response to

the COVID-19 Delta Variant

RunVermont announced that the 2021 People’s United

Bank Vermont City Marathon & Relay will be altering the

event in response to the COVID-19 Delta variant. This year’s

race was already looking different than previous years, and

RunVermont will be making one more safety modification to

support our community’s healthcare professionals. The current

surge in COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant is

becoming a larger concern in many communities, including

here in Burlington, Vermont.

The medical services required for a 26.2-mile event rely on

a substantial number of medical professionals, with a variety

of specializations. After extensive review and discussions

with professionals associated with the health care field,

RunVermont believes it would be insensitive to ask those

professionals to step aside from their duties to attend to the

needs of the race at a time when the medical community is

under some significant strain.

All registered runners will be able to participate in the

event. Here’s how:

• 2 Person relay runners - will start as individual runners at the

same time. This year you can run with your teammate. Team

scoring will be an aggregate of the combined times.

• 3-5 Person relay runners – all team members will run a

5-mile course, featuring the highlights of the larger course,

teammates may start and run together. Team scoring will be an

aggregate of the top three times.

• Marathon Runners – may select a virtual marathon option,

convert to a half marathon distance, defer their marathon to

May 2022 or enter one of three races on a complimentary,

space available basis:

a. the Mad Marathon on September 12 (www.MadMarathon.

com).

b. the Adirondack Marathon on October 3 (www.

AdirondackMarathon.org).

c. the Eversource Hartford Marathon on October 9 (www.

HartfordMarathon.com).

RunVermont recognizes and thanks Dori Ingals at the Mad

Marathon, Joel Friedman at the Adirondack Marathon, and

Beth Shluger at the Eversource Hartford Marathon for welcoming

their runners.

For this modified event, RunVermont will be requiring

proof of vaccination and/or a negative PCR test taken within

a 72-hour period prior to the event.

One show only! Saturday, September 18th on the Vermont

State House steps, downtown Montpelier. Nobody writes lads

& lasses distractedly in love, or even witty one-liners like

Shakespeare does. “Love is Merely a Madness” – and that

makes for fun for the whole family! It’s Shakespeare on the

State House steps!

The Bard is Back at Lost Nation Theater. As the company

steps towards this “new start,” it’s fitting to take these steps on

the State House steps with the show that started LNT’s tradition

of Fall Foliage Shakespeare: As You Like It.

This romp thru the Forest of Arden is the ultimate rom-com,

celebrating the trials and tribulations of love, and the transformative

powers of love and forgiveness, in hilarious fashion.

As You Like it uses all The Bard’s best tricks – cross-dressing,

mistaken identities, and the wonder of the woods.

As You Like It takes the stage – or rather the State House

steps – in an active and abridged staged-reading, using First

Folio “cue scripts” just as they did in Shakespeare’s day. This

means LNT is using the First Folio script. Patrick Tucker (The

Secrets of Acting Shakespeare) has this to say about the First

Folio:

“It is the closest thing to the way Shakespeare wrote his

plays down. He was writing so that an actor, with no rehearsal,

probably blind drunk and reading by candlelight would know

what to do. These scripts, with original spellings and punctuations

are chock full of refreshing acting clues.”

Ann Harvey (founder of Lost Nation Theater’s Fall Foliage

Shakespeare, and formerly of NYC’s Riverside Shakespeare)

is once again at the helm, directing this Shakespeare comedy

– one of her all-time favorites. Here’s why it is:

“I love its optimism despite major conflict, and its willingness

to move on and find something new when what you

have is not to your liking. The play also leaves space for true

redemption for those who don’t think they need it. It also reminds

us that each person’s choices can surprise, confound

and delight everyone else. Nothing is inevitable.

Returning to the State House steps to stage such a bright,

breezy play is a delight. It gives us the opportunity to present

As You Like It in a lovely, wide open setting that gives the forest

of Arden a generous graciousness.

A dizzying dance of comedy and romance, LNT’s As You

Like It features a talented cast of 14 actors and musicians coming

together from across Vermont and NYC. Many of the cast

are favorite longtime LNT collaborators and Shakespeare specialists,

others are brand new to the community including: G.

Richard Ames, Kim A. Bent, Essence Brown, Richie Dupkin,

Erin Galligan Baldwin, Lisa Jablow, Marissa Mattongo, William

Pelton, Jelani Pitcher, Anna Rock, Mark S. Roberts, Jennifer

Sassaman and Shanda Williams.

Original music is written by Kathleen Keenan and performed

by fiddler Susan eid. Cora Fauser consults on costuming

elements and scenery is handled by Harvey and Bent.

Peter Guihan provides sound support to ensure everything is

heard by the audience. Speaking of the audience, Lost Nation

Theater’s founder Kim Bent says:

“Everyone should see at least one Shakespeare play performed

outside with the sun as the only illumination, fully

exposed to whatever random distractions might occur. It’s the

only way to fully appreciate how compelling Shakespeare can

be. You can’t help but be drawn into the action, and the music

of the language is captivating. Inevitably, you find yourself

paying rapt attention, not wanting to miss a beat.”

Audiences are asked to bring their own cushions – seating

will be on the steps (or chairs for limited side lawn use); to

adhere to social distancing guidelines, to wear a mask at all

times and be prepared to provide contact info for contact tracing

use only.

Safety is being taken very seriously. We are so grateful to

all the performers, production team and technicians for sharing

their time and talents to make this possible. Special thanks

to Walter Westinghouse and U-32 for their assistance.

Just 1 show! 2 p.m. Saturday September 18. 90 minutes,

no intermission. It’s free! (but donations gratefully accepted).

The show will also be recorded for on-demand viewing. For

information: visit lostnationtheater.org.

“All The World’s a Stage!” – William Shakespeare, As You

Like It. Join us on our stage!

by the Covid 19 pandemic. Daily elements of our lives have

been altered, if not disrupted, and each of us has experienced

the passing of someone or something. There have been tragedies

and losses, as well as silver linings: unexpected selfdiscoveries

and achievements.

During the Work and Play Shop, we will explore the landscape

of our Covid time, individually and collectively. Simple,

if not easy, questions will be asked and the responses may be

written, drawn, painted, danced, sung, spoken ... the expressive

medium is up to you. You will be invited to share your

story, though you, of course, may choose to keep it to yourself.

Listening will be as important as speaking.

Wildlife Coalition Offers

$2,500 to Student Artists

This October the Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro

will be exhibiting art work by more than a half dozen of North

America’s most renowned wildlife artists. In conjunction with

that exhibit the Vermont Wildlife Coalition Education Fund is

offering $2,500 in prizes to students in grades 7-12 who submit

their own works of art depicting Vermont Wildlife. First

prize is $1,000; second prize is $750; third prize is $500; and

fourth prize is $250. Student winners will have their work

displayed along with the work of the nationally recognized

artists.

Participating nationally recognized artists who will be

exhibiting their work include Jean Louis Courteau (https://

jeanlouiscourteau.blogspot.com/), Cole Johnson (http://www.

colejohnsonart.com/), Rob Mullin (https://robertpaulgalleries.

com/artists/rob-mullen/), Patricia Pepin (https://www.patriciapepin.com/gallery.html),

John Pitcher, Sue Westin (https://

westinpitcherart.com/johns-archived-works/), John Potter

(https://www.johnpotterstudio.com/) and Bonnie Rowell

(https://www.bonniesbotanicalsvt.com/contact).

Many of the works by these renowned artists, that will be

on display in October at the Highland Center, will be “plein

air” paintings. Plein air painting is about leaving the studio

and getting outdoors to experience the wildlife and landscapes

being painted. In this case the artists are all engaged in an

expedition to sail the length of Lake Champlain and to paint

scenes of wildlife and wildlife habitat on and around Lake

Champlain. The Lake is one of Vermont’s most precious natural

resources. The artists hope to support and to bring greater

public attention to the importance of this priceless resource

and the wildlife it supports. The art produced on the expedition

will be sold to help support the work of the Vermont

Wildlife Coalition’s Education Fund.

The Vermont Wildlife Coalition’s Education Fund is

intended to encourage young Vermonters to get outside and to

enjoy and appreciate the beauty of Vermont’s landscapes,

lakes, rivers and streams and, in particular, Vermont’s wildlife

and wildlife habitat. The hope is that by encouraging students

to recreate those scenes in works of art, others will likewise

be able to share and appreciate Vermont’s natural resources.

To help celebrate Vermont wildlife and these works of art,

these artists will be joined at the Highland Center for the Arts

on October 17th in a concert by some of our countries greatest

musicians, including Tish Hinojosa from Austin, Texas; Dave

Mallett, one of New England’s native sons and a nationally

renowned singer/songwriter, as well as Dave’s sons, Luke and

Will Mallett who have become one of our countries most

popular new indie folk/country bands.

Never a day goes by that you’re not in my heart

CVMC Updates Visitation Policy

Central Vermont Medical Center changed its visitation

policy. Now, only vaccinated individuals (two in the hospital

and one in practices) may visit or accompany patients.

CVMC staff have greeted patients and visitors since early

in the pandemic to screen for Covid-19 symptoms and provide

masking guidance. Now, the CVMC team will now also

inquire about vaccination status before permitting visitors to

enter to a health care facility. Physical proof of vaccination

will not be required for entry.

“The vaccines have been demonstrated to be effective in

reducing transmission and preventing severe cases of Covid-

19,” said Chief Nursing Officer and VP of Patient Care

Services Matthew Choate, BSN, RN, MBA. “We recognize

the importance of family and friends in the care team. We also

have vulnerable patients in the hospital and we want to keep

them as safe as possible. This is one way to do so.”

Masking remains required of all visitors, patients and staff

whenever inside a CVMC facility in-line with CDC recommendations.

Exceptions to the new vaccination rule include healthy

and symptom-free visitors for:

• Infants and minors ineligible for the vaccine.

• End-of-life care.

• Labor and delivery.

NATURAL HEALTH CORNER | JOSHUA SINGER

This past week I dropped my eldest child

off at college for her first year. Luckily

she’s just down the road in Burlington,

making it a bit less painful for me. I’m

feeling for those parents sending their

loved ones to far off states where they can’t

visit or help them out so easily. I don’t plan

to write about attachment here but more

about the importance of our relationships and having a healthy

connection to others. I’m surely not an expert in relationship

or psychology, but I have learned a few things based on my

personal and professional experience. And I’m sure there are

readers here who can teach us further what a healthy relationship

is like. As I’ve been doing these past few days, you may

reflect on that connection you feel with your child, your parent,

grandparent, sibling, spouse, your friend, or co-worker.

YOUR HEALTH AND RELATIONSHIPS

You may have noticed that I do sometimes repeat topics

here, ones that seem again relevant or maybe I’ve learned

more over time that I hope are helpful to others. I’ve alluded

to the Harvard study in the past that I find significant. This is

the one that began in 1938, one of the longest continuous studies

of adult development in the world. The researchers back

then began tracking 268 of the school’s sophomores, who

have been observed since as their lives have progressed. I

imagine there are now only a few of these originals still living.

(Interestingly, one of those recruits was JFK.) Without going

into the details of this study over these many years, what the

generations of researchers have learned is that relationships

are a key to healthy aging. It is described that loneliness can

lead to a similar decline in health that we’ve learned, for

example, that smoking and alcohol abuse can lead to.

We have come to focus a lot of attention in health care on

numbers. We have numbers of white blood cells, types of

cholesterol, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, thyroid hormones,

and many other numbers of very small things in our

bodies. These numbers are clues for your providers to see if

your body is on track or not. But the quality of your various

relationships, not just your marriage (though this is of primary

importance), should also have attention as we’ve come to

learn that quality of relationship also clearly influences quality

of health. The research shows that people that create

healthy relationships end up eating healthier, drinking less

alcohol, and remain active and engaged. This is beneficial to

both their physical and mental aging processes.

STRESS AND HONEST COMMUNICATION

In my practice, I often see that physical symptoms are coming

from stress, acute or chronic. Sometimes this is rooted in

finances and not having enough, but more often I listen to

people talk about the struggle with a family member or coworker.

If we are to address the root of the physical symptom,

• Support for patients undergoing sedation or general anesthesia.

“Even minor symptoms like a stuffy nose could be Covid,”

said Choate. “We need visitors to err on the side of caution

when it comes to self-assessing their symptoms before coming

to visit.”

Per State of Vermont requirements, Central Vermont

Medical Center’s Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing

remains open to all healthy and symptom free visitors –

regardless of vaccination status.

Those with minor Covid-like symptoms should stay home

and arrange for testing with the state prior to contacting their

primary care provider or the CVMC Express Care in Berlin.

it may come down to somehow improving the relationship

with this person. I’m learning that being honest with how you

may be feeling is often the best that can be done to communicate

and actually see something change. Can you be real with

the other person, with authenticity, transparency, honesty,

while sharing what is true for you? Do you know what it feels

like to look them in the eye, sharing the real feeling, whether

painful, scary, or with gratitude? Healthy relationship must be

based on these things. This can surely be a work in progress.

Honest communication to improve a relationship is a noble

and worthwhile commitment that may ultimately benefit your

physical health and well-being.

KEEP THE EMOTIONS MOVING

For me, not having my daughter at home now brings up

some feelings. I’m sure many of you can relate. Sharing with

my loved ones some of these, the sadness, excitement, pride,

and fear, at an appropriate time would deepen the relationships

I have with them. This may be with my wife, my brother, a

friend, my mother, or my daughter herself. The strategy as an

acupuncturist is often to keep the circulation in the body moving

effectively in order to maintain proper health. This means

the blood and its contents, including the various nutrients for

the cells, hormones, immune factors, neurotransmitters, etc,.

but it also means keeping our emotions moving. For the sake

of your body, I hope you can further strengthen or even repair

your relationships with honesty and openness.

Vermont Legislative Redistricting: A Brewing Storm?

Recently published census figures herald the coming

Vermont Legislative Redistricting saga. The census numbers

are cold and dry, but behind the numbers are real people and

real communities such as my home town, Stowe. Now too

large for a single state representative and too small for two

state representatives. Stowe, meet Legislative Redistricting.

Vermonters legitimately decry other states gerrymandering

of congressional and legislative seats. States dominated by a

single party have come to use their majority to grossly manipulate

legislative redistricting. Vermont is clearly a blue state,

but Vermonters expect our legislators to be above those partisan

tactics. Left unsaid by polite folks, but uppermost in the

minds of others is the alluring prospect of cheap gains while

trampling the Vermont way. Here’s hoping the majority legislative

party plays well with the other, smaller parties in the

redistricting sandbox.

What gives me the right to comment on this subject? I have

seen this process up close and personal. In 1990-1992 redistricting

carved up my house district and my participation in

the Vermont House of Representatives ended. The lessons

learned could be of value to the communities, and legislators

who will soon go thru what Barre City experienced in 1990-

1992.

In 1990 the House Speaker chose the House committee

chair and picked the committee members responsible for

crafting the new redistricting plan. Some said this was done to

assure as favorably an outcome for their party as could be

crafted. Vermont media reported at the time, “Democrats flex

muscles, win on redistricting” AP 4/26/92. A Burlington Free

Press article dated 1/24/92 outlined the winning party’s spoils.

The reporter described three new districts each matching two

Republicans against each other and two additional new districts

pitting less senior Republicans against long serving

Democrats. The Speakers comment was quite definitive, “It’s

politics, pure and simple.” Could this be why they call redistricting

the blood sport of politics?

Legislators about to experience their own struggle with loss

should focus first on their communities and their constituents.

Educate, explain options and don’t sugar coat reality. Listen to

their angst and be there for them. They didn’t do anything

wrong, but are facing a witches brew of bewildering map

boundaries, population changes, and no viable options. Most

Dear Veterans And Our Community,

Twenty years ago, on Tuesday morning, September 11,

2001, our lives changed forever as terrorists attacked the

United States of America. It was a sobering day marked by the

humanity, heroism and grace that rose up throughout our

Nation as we faced unimaginable tragedy and loss. Thousands

were killed that day, thousands more were injured, and still

thousands more responded to help the victims.

As I look back on the events that occurred on September

11, 2001, I’m reminded of the incredible perseverance and

strength of our Nation – characteristics inspired by the

Veterans we serve.

May we always remember those we lost. May we always

be grateful for the heroes who responded that day. And may

we forever honor those who decided to serve our Nation,

inspired by that tragic day. We are honored to serve our Post

9/11 Veterans each day and will continue to do so as they

earned and deserved our support.

One of the most important ways that you can be available

and support our Veterans from all periods of service is to

important of all explain what happened to the folks who sent

you to Montpelier. I walked my district for the final time distributing

a letter saying, thanks very much, I’m sorry I can’t

continue to be your state representative. Call it closure.

Inform your communities the Vermont Judiciary very seldom

entertains redistricting court challenges. In 1990-1992

there were five house appeals and one senate appeal.

Ultimately, all failed.

Vermont citizens should support, encourage, and empathize

with those state representatives, and senators who will, thru

no fault of their own, lose their seats. It hurts Vermont democracy

when hard working, dedicated, service minded

Vermonters are punished solely because they have an I, R, or

P next to their name. For those adversely affected legislators

the options are limited. Retirement, a more challenging race

for state representative or running for the Vermont Senate

(which was my choice).

Vermont media can and should use their bully pulpit for

timely editorial reminders to the majority party to avoid blatant

political ploys and decidedly unfair outcomes. Timely

being defined as far in advance of finalized legislative plans.

They should encourage legislative leaders not to mimic other

states examples of one-sided plans. If the Vermont media

won’t voice their objections to the corruption of the democratic

process might it be assumed they support it?

There’s a narrow gap between what’s required legally and

what’s arguably appropriate. Vermonters and their communities

know the difference between a fair deal and a raw deal.

They don’t expect perfection, but won’t accept or look kindly

on heavy handed political maneuvers. After the election of

1992, Barre City, ended up with two Republican representatives

and one Democrat state representative. And a newly

minted Republican State Senator Matt Krauss. This outcome

was the result of a fortuitous combination of hard work and an

angry community recognizing it had been treated unfairly.

Call it fate, karma, or coincidence the speaker and the former

committee chair involved in crafting the redistricting bill

received a different outcome. Two years later both had their

political careers permanently ended by the voters. Perhaps the

majority party might remember this outcome as they craft

their bills.

September a Month for Suicide Prevention

Significant strides have been made this past year

towards coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, with the rise of variants, turbulence

overseas, troubling news and with cold and

flu season just around the corner on top of

all this, it can feel as though hope might

be slipping away once more, which

could lead to even more distressing

feelings.

A report put out by the journal

Boston Translational Behavioral

Medicine in April 2021 stated that

anxiety and depression rose six times

higher in 2020 than in the year before.

The study reiterated the affects the pandemic

had on health, mortality, the economy,

etc, stating it led to “gross disturbances

in people’s daily lives and social

interactions.”

“Not surprisingly, these myriad of stressors have

led to rising rates of mental health disorder symptoms,” the

journal continued.

As the world continues to fight back in the face of variants

and other stressors, and as the Granite State draws closer to

shorter days leading to the affects of Seasonal Affective

issues, all of these things could make for the perfect storm of

mental health woes, leading to severe symptoms for many.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and the

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has made this

year’s campaign, “Together for Mental Health,” to encourage

people to bring their voices together to advocate for and

reduce the stigma against mental health care.

According to NAMI, nearly half of all people who die by

suicide have some form of pre-existing mental health condition.

Research has shown that of this portion, 90 percent of

these people have experienced symptoms.

NAMI wants the public to know that knowing the signs of

mental health crisis that could lead to suicide ideation or plans

of suicide is crucial to getting a loved one life-saving help.

The beginning signs of suicidal ideation aren’t always

obvious. NAMI mentions that seemingly innocuous comments

such as “Nothing matters,” or, “I’m just so tired of this”

could over time become “more explicit and dangerous,” and

should be considered possible red flags.

Other warning signs of suicide include, but may not be

limited to: increase in alcohol or drug use; aggressive behavior;

withdrawal from friends, family, and community; dramatic

mood swings; impulsive or reckless behavior.

NAMI makes it a point to consider suicidal behaviors as a

psychiatric emergency, and urges anyone with family or

friends exhibiting the following to seek immediate help from

Cromwell (1970)

★★★

For a thousand years, England has had a monarchy. And,

for the most part, the kings and queens of England have

added to the country’s stability.

For a terribly violent and chaotic period in the mid-17th

century, England had no king. And it got ugly.

Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell ruled the British Isles with

an iron fist from 1653-58. It would be easy and appropriate

for the Windsors to dismiss the Cromwell years as a shameful

aberration. But, curiously, they don’t. The British ruling class

and many historians tend to gloss over Cromwell’s crimes.

The pro-Cromwell film “Cromwell” does the same thing. It

fabricates virtues that don’t exist while ignoring the oppression

and mass murder that he perpetrated.

Most of the story takes place during the English Civil War

(1640-49), which pit the mostly Puritan forces of Parliament

against the mostly Anglican and Catholic forces of King

Charles I.

During the Civil War, passionate Puritan nobleman Oliver

Cromwell (Richard Harris) distinguished himself as a great

military organizer and field strategist.

With his New Model Army in toe, Lord Cromwell fought

himself into the role of acting head of England. While Charles

I (Alec Guinness) was on his way to losing his head entirely.

And just what motivated this warrior tyrant? According to

writer/director Ken Hughes, Oliver Cromwell was fighting

for the people and democracy. That is a ludicrous lie.

In theory, he wanted Puritan noblemen to rule the British

Isles. In practice, he grabbed all the power for himself, backed

by his standing army. The film laughably states that Oliver

Cromwell established a Republic. In reality, he was a military

strongman who founded a Japanese-style medieval Shogunate.

I actually liked watching the movie “Cromwell.” It is wellpaced

for an historical epic and I enjoyed Alec Guinness’s

empathetic take on the well-meaning but ill-fated king. But I

do not understand what motivated the filmmakers to put a

positive spin on an objectively horrible historical figure.

a health care provider, or even to dial 911: collecting

or saving pills or buying a weapon; giving

away possessions; uncharacteristically

tying up loose ends (organizing personal

papers or paying off debts); and saying

goodbye to friends and family.

The National Institute for Mental

Health (NIMH) offers five action

steps for helping a loved one considering

suicide.

The first step is to simply ask.

Anyone who suspects that any

friends or family members might

be in crisis are encouraged to

approach them and ask if they are

thinking of harming themselves or

committing suicide. If so, step two is to

keep them safe by reducing access to

lethal items or places, and to offer emotional

and physical reassurance (step 3).

The fourth step is to help loved ones connect to

mental health resources, including suicide prevention hotlines,

mental health care providers, physicians, etc. Finally,

loved ones should be sure to stay connected, and to follow up

throughout and after their family or friends are experiencing

crisis.

According to NAMI, “There is a widespread stigma associated

with suicide and as a result, many people are afraid to

speak about it.” It is an uncomfortable subject, but talking

about it openly, honestly, and non-judgmentally is crucial to

providing anyone in crisis with the proper care they need to

make steps toward recovery.

Many believe that thoughts, or even attempts at suicide are

selfish or attention-seeking, but this is often very much not the

case. NAMI states that often people feel that suicide is the

only way to end often long-term suffering.

NAMI continues, “They are not simply, ‘thinking of themselves,’

but rather they are going through a very serious mental

health symptom due to either mental illness or difficult life

situation.”

Time may still be tough, but family and friends are stronger

together. It is easy to become preoccupied, but keeping a line

of open and honest communication could make all the difference

in someone’s life – and could even potentially save it.

Anyone experiencing distressing thoughts or suicide ideation

is encouraged to contact the National Suicide Hotline at

1-800-273-TALK (8255). Those who may be having trouble

expressing their thoughts, or who may be unable to speak for

any reason are encouraged to text NAMI to 741-741.

If anyone has been injured or harmed in any way, has shown

signs of overdose, etc, 911 should be called immediately.

Richard Harris’s Cromwell claims to be fighting for freedom

and “the common people.” But the experiment of Puritan

rule in England was anything but liberating.

Puritan Parliament criminalized theater, make-up, colorful

dresses, most sports, and Christmas carols.

One group of people who most certainly did not feel liberated

were the unfortunate Catholics of the British Isles. One

thing that “Cromwell” gets right is Oliver Cromwell’s fanatical

hatred of Roman Catholicism.

In the movie, Richard Harris only talks about his distrust of

Catholics. In real life, he acted. Cromwell’s violent suppression

of an Irish uprising was one of the most shameful episodes

in the history of English imperialism.

The slaughter of countless Catholics was only the beginning.

Cromwell had tens of thousands of Irish people rounded

up and sold into indentured servitude in England and the

Americas. He robbed Catholics of their farms and gave the

estates to Protestant landlords.

Due in large part to Oliver Cromwell, Irish Catholics became

mere colonial subjects in their own country for the next 250

years. Cromwell is still hated in Ireland, and rightly so.

But not in England. When the final British king is pressured

to forfeit his crown, the Windsor family should look at themselves

in the mirror. One of the reasons why the monarchy lost

legitimacy was their disturbing and completely unnecessary

respect for the legacy of Oliver Cromwell.

Winterize

your Home

Once the temperatures start

dropping and the winds pick up, it’s

time to start thinking about how to

keep your home as cozy as you can

during the cooler months.

The good news is that the Family Handyman says that

winterization is a job that can be done in a single weekend

with just a few easy steps.

FURNACE

If your home has a furnace, you should call your HVAC

professional for a tune-up before it’s time for it to start putting

in work. This will keep your furnace running efficiently,

meaning your bill stays lower, and it may extend the life of

your HVAC system.

ADD INSULATION

Speaking of keeping those utility bills low, the fall is a

great time to check on your insulation and make sure it’s not

too packed or broken down. Adding an extra layer of modern

insulation is easy to do in attics and crawl spaces, and the

protection it gives your home can pay off bigtime.

A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO THE WORLD

F A L L

Home &

Garden

CLEAN GUTTERS

The leaves are falling — and that means in your gutters,

too. Clean them out before fall’s rains (or snows) hit so that

water flows neatly away from your home.

CHECK YOUR PLUMBING

While you’re putting in that new insulation, check on your

plumbing, particularly any pipes that run through basements

or unheated spaces. Wrap your pipes with pipe insulation or,

if it gets really cold at your house, run a heat cable under the

insulation to avoid burst pipes when the temperatures dip

below freezing.

Run SnowBlowers

After the first snow fall is not the time to find out your

snow blower isn’t working. Check on it before the season

starts and perform any of the manufacturer’s recommended

maintenance. If you shovel, check your shovel to make sure

it’s free from rust and in good working order.

Stock Up on Salt and Sand

The time to buy these simple ice-fighters is before the temperatures

drop before freezing the first time. eep plenty of

salt and sand on hand to keep your feet firmly on the ground

in even the worst of winter weather.

Caring for Trees

It can be easy to forget that the big trees in your yard are plants just like your more fragile

START IN THE FALL

Proper tree maintenance starts in the fall. Prepare your

trees for colder weather by pruning back unruly branches;

inspecting the trees for dying limbs, insect damage or signs

of disease; nourish your trees with plenty of water and

organic mulch; and, if you’re planting, plant your new trees

in the fall.

Healthy, well-cared-for trees don’t snap, lose limbs or

have termites. Prune branches that are broken, either from

storms or disease, and also take any branches that are perilously

close to your home or other property. Remember that

pruning slows the growth of trees because they must heal the

cuts before they resume growth.

KEEP A DISTANCE

Remember that the tree isn’t just the trunk and branches.

Getting too close to trees, even by building a deck or parking

a car under it, can damage fragile root systems, making

roses and flowers that need freuent care.

the tree less healthy and more prone to disease. Roots need

two or three times the length of the tree’s branches to grow

enough to support the whole tree.

COVER IT UP

A good layer of mulch will keep your tree cozy just like a

warm fuzzy blanket keeps you warm when temperatures dip.

Layer the mulch 2-3 inches deep around the base of your

tree, but don’t let it touch the tree’s bark. Remove any older

mulch before putting down a fresh layer.

Choose the Right Tree

Every tree has it’s own place. And that place may not be in

your yard. Don’t judge the mature tree by the tiny specimen

you see in your tree nursery or garden store. Instead, consider

the mature size of the tree (and look at the maximum;

don’t bet on the minimum). Consider both the canopy size

and the reach of the roots. Also look at the types of leaves it

will drop and where they will fall.

FALL HOME & GARDEN | THE WORLD

Learn to Love the Leaves

Fall leaves are lots of fun, unless you’re the

one that has to rake them. The good news

is you don’t have to rake them this year.

Leaves are an important part of the ecosystem, providing

fall and winter homes for overwintering insects, including

butterflies and other valuable pollinators.

MULCHING

If you must keep the leaves off your lawn, instead of

raking or, even worse, blowing the leaves away, try mulching

the leaves into fertilizer for a greener spring. eave your

leaves in the flowerbeds and in other places that are away

from the grass as a home for helpful insects and other pollinators

to keep your gardens happy next year.

HOW TO MULCH YOUR LEAVES

You can mulch your leaves with a lawnmower or a leaf

shredder. Mulching the leaves chops them into fine pieces so

they don’t smother your grass and so that they break down

more quickly into a nutrient-rich fertilizer for your yard.

• • •

Your lawnmower may have its own mulch setting, or you

can buy inexpensive mulching kits to put on your mower instead

of mower blades. Follow the manufacturer’s instruction

for those kits, but generally, they are used on the mower’s

highest setting. Deep drifts of leaves may require multiple

passes, or you can rake the mulched debris so that it’s evenly

distributed across your yard.

Compost

Another idea for your leaves is to pile them up or bag

them and move them to a safe place in your yard where you

can compost them. eaves can also be piled into flower beds

to act as insulation during the colder winter months. If the

leaf litter is too deep and doesn’t break down by spring, just

remove them to the compost bin.

Using Leaves for Weed Prevention

Remember how leaves can smother your yard and kill your

grass It also works for weeds. You can spread leaves over

patches of weeds to kill them during the fall and winter. More

importantly, you can spread leaves or mulched leaves over

bare spots in your yard to keep weeds from setting up shop.

Decorating for Fall

Fall is one of our favorite seasons for

decorating. This year, though, go beyond

the traditional orange gourds and dried

cornstalks.

Here’s how you can pump up your pumpkins this year.

PORCH LOOKS

If you’re lucky enough to have an open porch, fall is its

time to shine. The weather is gorgeous, making porch-sitting

a prime autumn idea. And you can decorate your new outdoor

room just for the occasion.

Make it memorable by selecting a color scheme that accentuates

your existing palette, but don’t be afraid to kick it

up with bright colors. Think a punch of orange and fiery red

heirloom pumpkins. Don’t be afraid of bright yellows, either,

as Pantone picked a sunny yellow as one of the top colors for

this fall.

GOOD GOURDS

Speaking of pumpkins, let’s get out of the orange pumpkin

rut. umpkins come in a huge variety of colors, including

neutral creams and whites, deep jewel greens, blazing reds

and hot yellows. roup your pumpkins in complementary

colors and pick a variety of shapes so that your pumpkin

patch really shines. Bonus points: Decoupage or paint faux

pumpkins in any color scheme you like for a personalized

peck of pumpkins.

COZY UP

Come fall, there’s literally no space that couldn’t use an

extra blanket. Elevate your cozy game by displaying throw

blankets in a variety of textures and colors that compliment

your existing decor. Also consider using blankets in new

ways, such as draped over tables as table cloths.

TERRIFIC TARTANS

Plaid is back this fall, and look for it on throw pillows,

blankets, tableware and more. o beyond the traditional

buffalo check, though, and hit plaid patterns in warm jewel

tones. Don’t be afraid to play with pattern and mix and

match, using neutral plaids as your base and working up from

there.

FORAGED FOLIAGE

Create gorgeous centerpieces, posies and other arrangements

by going nor further than your front yard. Sprays of

limbs festooned with colorful leaves, fall grasses and seasonal

blooms are all perfect for bringing the outside in this

season. Also look for seasonal fruits in jewel tones, such as

pears and apples, to dress your table and kitchen.

Gutter Maintenance

Those gorgeous colored leaves that drop every fall don’t

just fall on your yards and flower beds.

They also drop on your roofs and gutters,

keeping precipitation from moving efficiently

and safely away from your home. You can

prevent costly roof and home repairs with a

little simple maintenance done every fall.

STEP 1: TIME TO CLIMB

The first step in maintaining your gutters

properly is to grab a ladder and safely ascend

to the gutter height. sing your hands or

any number of available tools, clean all the

leaves, debris, dirt and assorted crud from

your gutter.

STEP 2: CHECK FASTENERS

The next thing you want to do is to check

the gutter spikes to make sure they pass

through the gutter, fascia board and into

the rafters of your roof. Over time, these

spikes can work their way out or they may

have never been properly fastened at all. If

needed, invest in new gutter spikes to keep

your gutters safely secured to your home.

While you’re up there, look for holes in the

gutters themselves or in the caulking in the

seams.

STEP 3: ATTEND TO DOWNSPOUTS

While you’re cleaning out the gutters,

• • •

don’t forget to also clean the downspouts. If

these spouts are clogged, it can cause backups

that will pull your gutters down from

your house. You also want to check the rivets

on your downspouts. If the rivets are loose

or have dropped out, head the hardware

store and get a set of new rivets and a rivet

gun to make quick repairs. At the bottom

of the downspout, there may be a splash

guard to prevent the water from eroding the

earth near your home. Make sure these are

routinely replaced to keep your foundations

secure.

STEP 4: PRESSURE WASH

Once you’ve got everything securely fastened,

you can then break out the big guns.

Pressure washers are powerful tools, and it’s

important that you use them according to the

manufacturer’s specific instructions, especially

while you’re working up high, such as

on ladders cleaning your gutters.

Also be careful with positioning the

stream from the pressure washer so that it

doesn’t hit the roof shingles at the wrong

angle and blow them off the roof.


For many parts of the country, fall

is a golden season where the air

conditioners and heaters aren’t

working overtime to keep us

comfortable in our homes.

It’s also a great time to do routine maintenance on our

heating and air conditioning systems to make sure they’re

running at peak efficiency. This maintenance can also extend

the life of your unit.

CLEAN IT UP

Clean off the outside unit and keep it clear of debris and

dirt, such as falling leaves. If you’re going to use a water

hose or pressure washer, make sure you switch off the power

at the circuit first. Take out any branches, tall grass or brush

in a four-foot perimeter around the outside unit so that it can

get adequate airflow for heating and cooling. Inside, vacuum

your vents and register covers to keep your system free of

dust and debris.

Burning Dry Firewood Saves Money and Improves Air Quality

With wood stove season rapidly approaching, it is time to

make sure you have enough dry firewood ready to go for this

winter.

Evaluating the moisture content of firewood can be tricky.

Wood can be purchased when it is “green,” “seasoned,”

“dried,” or “kiln dried,” but these are relative terms and wood

is only ready to be burned when its moisture content is 20%

or less. Wet wood is a waste. Instead of creating heat for your

home, burning wet wood means that that energy goes into

boiling off residual water so that the wood can ignite, and in

the process releases pollution into the air and creosote in your

chimney, which can lead to a fire hazard. Burning dry wood

saves you money and improves air quality.

When talking with firewood dealers, always be sure to ask

how they define the terms they are using to describe their

products and try using a moisture meter to test the moisture

content of your firewood. Moisture meters are available to

borrow from 60 public libraries around the state – check with

yours or see the entire list at https://dec.vermont.gov/woodburning.

FALL HOME & GARDEN | THE WORLD

Get Your HVAC Ready for Fall

PROTECT IT

Insulate any exterior pipes with foam pipe covers wrapped

in duct tape and, if you’d like, cover the condenser unit with

a plastic or vinyl cover secured well with bungee cords and

tape. Take this step only if you know you aren’t going to be

running the outside unit. You also want to regularly change

the filter to make sure the system is working easily and efficiently.

If you have allergies, you may want to change your

filters more frequently than the manufacturer recommends.

CALL IN PROFESSIONALS

There are some tasks best left to the HVAC professionals.

These include clearing drain lines and pipes, cleaning the

coils, check the refrigerant charge, belts and ductwork, and

performing any needed maintenance. Also have them check

• • •

Here are a couple of general guidelines to keep in mind

when talking to a firewood supplier:

• “Green wood” is fresh cut and should not be used for

fuel until it has had time to dry properly. This is the least

expensive to purchase and will require 6-12 months to dry

properly depending on species and conditions.

• “Dry wood” refers to air-dried wood that should be an

immediately burnable product at the time of delivery. Dry

wood should never be stored uncovered as it will reabsorb

rain and snow.

• “Kiln dried wood” has been dried through the introduction

of heat in a deliberately controlled environment (kiln) – a

process that drastically shortens the drying time. As with dry

wood, kiln dried firewood should be an immediately burnable

product at time of delivery. This is the most costly to purchase,

but is of a very high quality that many people prefer.

• “Seasoned wood” is the least well defined of any of the

terms associated with firewood. “Seasoning” is synonymous

with “drying” but the key to the wood’s actual moisture content

is how long and under what conditions the wood has been

your thermostat to make sure it’s properly calibrated for your

system. Climate control systems are complicated and it’s

all to easy to mess it up and trigger a bigger repair bill than

you may have had in the first place. For any task you have

questions about, call in the pros first. You may also be able

to set up a regular maintenance plan that could also earn you

discounts on repairs and other service.

“seasoned.” When purchasing “seasoned” wood, always be

sure to ask your dealer how long the wood has been split, as

opposed to just felled, and if it was stacked under cover to

facilitate drying. You should assume that seasoned wood is

not ready to burn without further drying.

If you are not planning to buy dry wood, the best strategy

is to plan and allow plenty of time for your wood to dry under

cover and with ample air flow around it. Order wood during

the winter or early spring for the following year, then stack

and cover it to dry during the spring and summer for burning

the following fall. This is the most reliable and economical

way to ensure your supply of properly dried firewood.

Vermonters interested in burning less wood altogether

should consider upgrading an old wood burning stove for a

newer, cleaner burning model. A $200 stove changeout rebate

is available from Efficiency Vermont and stoves with at least

75% efficiency are eligible for a 26% federal tax credit. For

Vermont Motorists Have Hit 41 Moose

So Far This Year, More Than All of 2020

By CompassVermont.com

Drivers need to be alert and cautious because

moose are on the move, according to

the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.

Moose are more likely to be crossing roadways

at this time of year, especially after dark

or early in the morning because this is breeding

season for moose.

“Motorists hit 39 moose on Vermont highways

during 2020 and 41 so far this year,” said

State Game Warden Lieutenant Carl Wedin.

“We are asking drivers to be especially

careful and for people to enjoy watching

moose from a distance. Moose can be unpredictable

and dangerous if you get too close

and they feel cornered or get irritated.”

Moose are a threat to motorists, but there

are measures you can take to avoid hitting

them, according to Fish and Wildlife:

Always be aware of the danger -- moose

cross the road randomly, as well as at their

regular crossings.

Increase your roadside awareness and

reduce your speed when you see MOOSE

CROSSING signs along the highway. When

on secondary roads, the recommended speed

is 40 mph or less in these moose crossing

By CompassVermont.com

Three women were hiking on the Long

Trail in the Killington area over the Labor

Day weekend when they encountered a man

whose words and actions were highly threatening

and dangerous.

Readers are encouraged to reach out to local

law enforcement if they have any additional

information about this man.

The hiker, who requested her name not be

included, posted the following story of caution

and warning.

TW: SEXUAL ASSAULT

This past weekend, my friends and I were

staying in Pico Shelter for the night. At

around 7, a tall man, long blonde hair and

small beard, showed up to the shelter with

just a small pack – he went by the trail name

of Salt.

He said he just wanted to warm up his food

before going to the Cooper Lodge Shelter, we

however did not bring our jetboil system that

night, but he did not leave.

He continued to talk to us for hours – telling

us he was the lead singer of Metallica, that

he professed his love to a pro snowboarder

and now she’s divorcing her husband to be

with him, that he wrote two new movies on

Hulu, and had wrote many popular songs for

artists like Taylor Swift … many delusions.

He would become angry and say he needed

to listen to his music to calm down (the whole

time he was there he was playing music very

loudly).

The situation turned from odd to scary

when he began to make physical contact with

me. He began to give me a massage without

asking to touch me and ended in him straddling

me from behind before we were able to

move outside in hopes of getting space from

him.

He followed us out and continued to put

areas.

Drive defensively and don’t overdrive your

headlights. Moose are more active at night

and early morning, and they are difficult to

see because of their dark color.

If you see a moose ahead, slow down or

stop. Trying to speed past them before they

can move can be a serious mistake.

Vermont highway sections most frequented

by moose:

-t.105 from Island ond to Bloomfield.

-Rt.114 from East Burke to Canaan.

-Rt.2 from Lunenburg to East St. Johnsbury.

-Interstate 1 at Sheffield Heights.

-Interstate 89 from Bolton to Montpelier.

-Rt. 12 from Worcester to Elmore.

-Rt 118 near Belvidere Corners and the Rt.

109 intersection.

collisions with moose on Vermont highways

his hand on my lower back while my friends

and I were looking at the stars outside, he kept

saying he was in love with me, and when we

said we were going to bed, he asked “who was

going to cuddle him”.

The situation was so uncomfortable that

my friends and I all slept on the same platform,

unsure of what he would do in the night.

He continued to sing and yell all night – in

early morning he yelled “it’s 3 a.m., the sun

is up, and there’s three feet of powder on the

ground!” No one got a good nights sleep,

whenever we woke up we were scared to

move, scared for him to know we were awake.

We almost didn’t stay the night at the shelter

just to get away before it became bad but

were too scared of it making him angry and

violent.

Thankfully, it wasn’t any worse than it was.

Be careful around the Killington area, especially

if you are alone – he mentioned being

around often.

This has been posted on All Trails, Guthook,

and a police report will be made.

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.

Help! My Cats Have

Started Fighting

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My two

cats, Mitsy and Bitsy, got along well

for nearly five years. Bitsy is 11 years

old, about six years older than Mitsy.

In the past couple of months, they

squall and squabble with each other

every time they’re in the same room.

What is going on, and how do I stop it? -- Cara C.,

Albuquerque, New Mexico

DEAR CARA: Take both of your cats to the veterinarian as

soon as an appointment is available. Because the behavior

just recently started after years of tranquility, a health issue

could be at the root of their fighting.

Senior cats are especially likely to develop conditions

that cause them to be cranky or more territorial than usual.

Pain from arthritis or other conditions can be a big factor

in making Bitsy irritable, tired and just not in the mood to

hang out with Mitsy. Likewise, Mitsy could be developing

a medical condition; it’s best to rule out physical problems

in both cats.

Once their health has been assessed and treatment, if

necessary, started, then the hard work of reconciling the

two can begin. Keep the cats separated at first -- on opposite

sides of the house, if possible, in closed rooms. Each

day, reintroduce them by placing a small plate of food in

front of each door and letting them out. If they calmly eat,

then the next day, move both plates closer. Observe the cats

as they eat; if they begin to growl or tense up, put both

back into their rooms before they escalate -- fighting is

very traumatic for them. Shift the bowls back a bit and try

again.

Kitty is a CVHS alumni who came back to CVHS when

her adopter felt she needed more companionship than a

home with just one human companion who works fulltime.

Kitty, AKA Gracie, is bashful when first introduced to

a new setting, but once settled in will explore and

become chatty. She is a very smart cat who loves to

chase a laser light, toy balls, and seeks attention from her

human friends. She does not have experience with young

children or dogs that we are aware of. She does tolerate

her feline roommates here in the colony room.

unfl owers are a fantastic,

longlived flower to celebrate the end

of summer. ow is a great time to

observe sunflower lantings in your

community to enjoy their beauty and

think about how you might like to grow

them net season.

By Bonnie Kirn Donahue

Extension Master Gardener

University of Vermont

Sunflowers (Helianthus annus) are multi-season

plants with an important presence throughout the

year. In late fall, their colors bring a brightness to the

receding greens of the summer garden.

If the stalks are left up through the winter, sunflower

heads dry and provide seeds for birds and

squirrels (and potentially entertainment for you).

Their strong structure also is infinitely interesting

to look at against the stark whites and grays of the

winter landscape.

When browsing seed catalogues this winter to

order seeds for next year’s garden, consider the many

varieties of sunflowers that can be grown in home

gardens in northern climates.

Sunflowers are easy and inexpensive to grow. They can be

started easily from seed and come in many varieties and colors.

Some are bright yellow with brown centers, while others

are made up of rich browns, oranges, reds, pale yellows and

everything in between.

Certain varieties grow with one large head on a single

stem, and others grow multi-branched with multiple flowers

that fan out from the center. Some grow a few feet tall, while

others tower above fences. There are so many options to

explore and experiment with in your landscape.

Sunflowers can be started indoors in late spring. However,

if you decide to start them inside, be careful. Sunflowers

produce taproots and don’t appreciate their roots being disturbed.

sing pots made of biodegradable material can help

when transferring plants from indoors to outdoors.

For direct seeding in the garden, wait until after the last

frost in spring to plant. Choose an area that gets full sun with

well-drained soil. ersonal experience has shown me that

woodchucks and deer enjoy eating young sunflower plants,

so keep this in mind if you struggle with keeping these animals

away each year.

FALL HOME & GARDEN T

The Joy of Sunflowers

Sunflowers, which come in many varieties and colors, add beauty to the

landscape and attract birds to the garden. (photo: Bonnie Kirn Donahue)

I have tried fencing off whole beds or garden spaces and

using wire baskets to protect individual plants when they are

young. This has produced varied results, but in my experience,

many of the sunflowers that have been nibbled seem to

bounce back.

ollinators also are attracted to sunflowers. This makes

sunflowers exciting to observe in bloom from summer

through fall. If you watch for a couple of minutes, you may

see many different insects enjoying the pollen and shelter

of a magnificent sunflower head. ollinators appreciate

consistent blooms, so consider planting multiple varieties of

sunflowers that bloom at different times to give the insects

and bees an extended season to enjoy.

The strong structure of sunflowers also can be used in creative

ways. If planted next to each other in a line, they can be

grown as a seasonal hedge or fence line. Sunflowers planted

in a circle or other shape can become a magical and low-cost

playhouse for kids to enjoy outdoors.

As summer comes to a close, take a look at the sunflowers

around you and consider how you might like to utilize them

next year. There is so much to look forward to in next year’s

garden.

Hosta: Not Just

Another Pretty Plant

By Deborah J. Benoit

Extension Master Gardener, University of Vermont

Do you grow hostas Even if you don’t know them by name, you’ll

likely recognize their neat, rounded form in the garden. Hardy in .S.

Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones -, they’re popular as

a reliable, easy maintenance choice.

ow light o problem. Hostas grow and flower happily in conditions

from part to full shade and can tolerate sunny spots in northern

states.

Even if you’re familiar with hostas and grow them in your own

garden, you may not be aware that the leaves and flowers are edible.

That’s right. Hostas are not just another pretty plant.

Taste test in the spring when the new leaves emerge. Shoots are

tender and tasty and often compared to asparagus, not a surprise since

hosta and asparagus are both members of the same family

(Asparagaceae).

To harvest hostas, cut the shoots off near the soil. Wash and dry them

as you would any other vegetable harvested in your garden. The shoots

can be added to salads or fried with a bit of butter and garlic and served

as a vegetable side dish. Or you could wrap them in bacon and roast in

the oven.

With so many possibilities, you might consider adding hostas to your

garden this fall to harvest in the spring. And if you already grow them,

you could give the leaves a try now.

Once the leaves unfurl and mature, they become tougher and take on

a bitter taste. They can be chopped and boiled or steamed to add to

soups, stews or dishes taking the place of spinach or other greens.

Hostas flower in late summer, sending up scapes with trumpetshaped

flowers. The white or purple flowers are an attractive addition

for several weeks to an already decorative plant. And they, too, are

edible.

Fresh hosta flowers have a nice crunch and a flavor similar to lettuce.

They can be used as you would any edible flower, added to a salad or

used as a garnish.

A few words of caution. If you plan on nibbling the hostas in your

garden, care for them as you would any other food crop. Be sure any

hostas you intend to eat have not been treated with any pesticides or

potentially poisonous chemicals. And please don’t share your culinary

creations with your dog or cat because hostas are toxic to them.

Hostas are fairly problem-free with the exception of slugs. These

pests can cause large, irregular holes in the foliage and are active when

temperatures are above 50 degrees Fahrenheit and conditions are moist.

Cultivars, depending on leaf thickness, can vary for their susceptibility

to slugs. To deter these night-feeding pests, you can use several

organic methods. For information on slugs and snails, go to https://

go.uvm.edu/slugs.

Finally, fall is a fine time to add hostas to your garden, and you just

might find end of season sales at your local nursery. When planting,

select a location where the soil drains well with enough room for your

plant when it’s full grown. Hostas should be planted several weeks prior

to the ground freezing to allow time for the plant’s roots to get established.

Once temperatures dip below freezing consistently, hostas die back

to the ground. When the ground thaws and temperatures are reliably

above freezing again in spring, watch for the appearance of the new

season’s growth and enjoy those tasty treats.

For more information on growing hostas, check out this niversity

of Vermont Extension article, “The How-To of Hostas,” by Dr. eonard

erry at https://go.uvm.edu/hostas.

Must-have features in your

bathroom remodel

Veteran homeowners recognize the value of remodeling their kitchens and

bathrooms. Kitchens and baths tend to appear dated more quickly than

other spaces, such as living rooms and bedrooms, which can always be

revamped with some fresh paint and new furnishings.

The home improvement pricing resource

Home Guide indicates an average bathroom

remodel costs anywhere from $5,500 to

$15,000 depending on the size and scope

of the renovation. However, a bath redo

can increase a home’s resale value and can

return as much as 68 percent of homeowners’

investments. As homeowners plan their

bathroom renovations, it’s a good time to

consider improvements that will improve

function and add design appeal for years to

come.

• Floating vanity: Add an airy feeling to the

room by creating space between the vanity

and the floor. A floating vanity can be a counter

with a vessel sink or even have cabinets,

as long as the vanity doesn’t extend to the

floor.

• Freestanding traditional sink or tub: There’s

something elegant about a freestanding tub

or pedestal sink. Such features can lend a

classic vibe to a space. However, freestanding

fixtures also come in modern or eclectic

forms, so there are options for any design

style.

• Frameless showers: Switch to a walk-in

shower option, which improves aesthetics

and makes it easier to “age in place” in a

home. Pair that frameless shower with clear

glass shower doors so sightline in the space

remains unencumbered.

• Natural textures: Create a calm and serene

sanctuary in the bathroom with light,

natural hues and materials. Nature-inspired

colors on tiles, walls and vanities can add to

the spa vibe.

• Dual sinks and vanities: With a double

vanity, two people can share the space and

easily use the bathroom without getting in

each other’s way. One vanity with two sinks

works, but homeowners can create even

more personal space by dividing vanities and

mirrors.

Small textured tile on shower floors: Small

textures are appealing and add safety. The

added texture and grouting will keep feet

from slipping on wet floors. Also, opt for

mold-resistant grout to make cleanup even

easier.

• Special shower heads: Invest in shower

heads that can run the gamut from creating

steam showers to rainfall effects. Some

showers will have multiple shower jets to

offer an invigorating experience.

• Improve drainage: Increase the diameter

of the drain pipe in the bathroom from the

standard to a two-inch drain pipe. This will

reduce the risk of clogs and overflow leaks.

Install a window: atural light and air flow

can reduce the risk for mold and mildew

growth, and windows add some aesthetic appeal

to a space. Just be sure to choose frosted

privacy glass.

Additional considerations for a bath remodel

include heated floors, well-placed and

attractive storage options and a toilet enclosure

(water closet) for added privacy. These

and other bathroom renovation ideas can add

value and improve the appeal of the room.

What to know before planting

around your property

When planning a landscape, it’s tempting to pick the most colorful,

vibrant lants. n eyeoing roerty lled with yellows, urles,

inks, and other bold colors is sure to catch anyone’s eye. owever,

the right lant for a roerty is not always the most colorful.

Gardening novices can easily be overwhelmed

on a trip to their local garden

center, where employees may ask a host of

questions that have little to do with homeowners’

preferences and everything to do

with the growing conditions around their

properties. Those questions may seem a

little intense, but they’re well-intentioned.

Successful gardening is more about soil conditions

and access to sunlight than it is about

the plants themselves. An awe-inspiring hydrangea

bush will only impress if it’s planted

in a location where it can thrive.

The Landscape, Nursery and Urban Forestry

program at UMass Amherst Extension

advises homeowners to learn about the following

site conditions, and ultimately share

that knowledge with local garden center

representatives, before they pick and plant

anything around their properties.

• Hardiness zone: The Plant Hardiness Zone

Map from the U.S. Department of Agriculture

is designed to help gardeners determine

which plants are most likely to thrive where

they live. The map can be found on the

USDA website at www.usda.gov.

• Light availability, intensity, and duration,

from full sun to deep shade: Prior

to planting, homeowners can document

this information in a notebook or on their

smartphones. Do so for a long enough period

of time that you can get an accurate of idea

of the conditions in which plants will have

to grow, and then take that information with

you to the garden center where you will buy

your plants. Employees can then use this

info to help you find the right fit given the

light conditions.

• Water availability, both quantity and quality,

as well as ease of access

• Exposure to wind and temperature extremes

• Exposure to weather events, snow loads,

erosion, and flooding: arden center employees

can likely recommend plants based

on traditional weather patterns in a given

area.

• Soil type, drainage and compaction: Homeowners

can take note of any areas of their

property where water pools or the ground

feels especially soggy after rainfall. Share

this information with garden center employees

prior to picking plants for such areas.

If soil appears compacted, aeration prior to

planting may be necessary.

• Competition from existing vegetation,

keeping in mind the roots underground that

you can’t see

• Above ground wires or obstructions: Trees

will grow up, and the presence of power

lines or other obstructions may threaten the

trees or prove dangerous if trees eventually

grow into or hang over power lines.

Knowledge of various conditions prior to

planting can save homeowners the cost of

replacing plants and the hassle of dealing

with plants that don’t take.
