Coat Campaign Launched to Fill Need,

2021 Kitzmiller Coat Drive Cancelled

Organizers of the Karen Kitzmiller Memorial

Coat Drive have decided not to hold a traditional

coat drive once again for 22 due to

continued I concerns.

For 30 years, the coat drive started by the

late Karen Kitzmiller, has helped provide

thousands of community members and their

families with warm gear for the winter. istorically,

the need for winter items has been

great. This year will be no different. To honor

Karen’s commitment to provide warm outerwear

for winter, the Montpelier Rotary Club

has, for the second year, initiated a “Coat

Campaign” to collect monetary donations

from local businesses and community members.

The money will be used to purchase coats

and other winter items. The items purchased

will be distributed through several local civic

organizations that have first-hand knowledge

of people and families who could use a helping

hand to get ready for cold weather. If you

or someone that you know needs a coat and

other warm items, please call the The Salvation

rmy, arre, ermont at -2--

for assistance.

In most recent years, ommunity ational

Bank has been a partner helping to organize

and facilitate the itzmiller oat rive. Since

the coat drive is not happening, Community

ational ank has committed to a significant

donation to help launch the kickoff of the

Montpelier Rotary Club’s “Coat Campaign”

in hopes others will donate so that many of

the families in our communities are warm this

winter. usinesses and community members

wishing to make a monetary donation can

please make checks payable to Montpelier

Rotary Foundation, a 501c3 organization,

with “Coat Campaign” written in the memo

line and mail the checks to Montpelier Rotary,

One Credit Union Raises $1,125 for

Back-to-School Supplies

Brett Smith, President and CEO of One

Credit Union, shared the achievements of the

South Barre Branch. Led by Branch Manager,

Jodi Pecor, the team recognized the needs of

many children in the community that were

not well prepared to start school. “Especially

with COVID, getting kids ready for school

and ready for learning can be tough for many

families.” Jodi added, “By working together

with our membership, we can help to make

a difference, not only with the kids, but also

with the teachers. Teachers have their hands

full with lesson plans; we don’t need to add to

their worry about basic supplies!”

Throughout August the team worked with

the members to raise money and accept supply

donations for the children in the Barre

City, Barre Town, Montpelier, Williamstown,

and Roxbury Elementary Schools. And One

Credit Union members stepped up to the

challenge indeed! One member in particular,

American Federation of State, County and

Municipal Employees Union Local #1369,

made an incredibly generous donation!

Prevent Child Abuse Vermont

Programs to be Studied by

University Researchers

A grant in the amount of $1.6 million awarded by the CDC

Injury Center will fund this scientific study for a four year

period.

“We are honored to be one of three prevention programs in

the United States to be chosen as worthy of scientific, rigorous

study. This is so gratifying. We could not be happier,” said

Linda E Johnson, Executive Director, Prevent Child Abuse

Vermont.

This grant will allow PCAVT to have a rigorous study of

the efficacy of their child sexual abuse prevention programs

for children in grades Pre-K through 5, Care for Kids© and

We Care Elementary©. The primary Investigators are Beth

Molnar, PhD and John Holton, PhD, of Northeastern

University and The University of Illinois at Chicago, respectively.

Safe Shores, Inc. in Washington, DC, will implement

PCAVT’s programs to prevent child sexual abuse for this

rigorous scientific evaluation at 16 public charter schools,

over four years. The National Center for Missing and

Exploited Children will also partner in the study.

Grant funds will become available before the end of 2021,

and the schools will begin implementing the program, titled

The Healthy Relationships Project©, in 6-month intervals in a

stepped wedge randomized trial design study. Within one

year, the expectation is that there will be an increase in knowledge

and skills gained by parents, caregivers, and educators

regarding child sexual abuse, how to prevent it, an increase in

students’ positive socio-emotional skills, and a decrease in the

reports of child sexual abuse for children in the schools that

are using this program.

The Healthy Relationships Project© is a primary prevention

curriculum that is developmentally appropriate, trauma

informed, and comprised of both victim and victimization

prevention. It was written and has been delivered by PCAVT

since the mid-1990s and shared across 30 states, including

statewide across Vermont. Since its implementation, substantiated

cases in Vermont dropped 72% between 1992 and 2020,

and the number of child perpetrators dropped 77% in that

same time. Given this promising preliminary data, this curriculum

is expected to perform well under this rigorous scientific

evaluation. This study will move the science of child

sexual abuse prevention research forward, as few approaches

to prevention have ever been evaluated in this way.

The mission of PCAVT is to promote and support healthy

relationships within families, schools, and communities to

eliminate child abuse. Serving Vermont began as Parents

Anonymous of VT in 1976 and has grown to have a helpline

and three main programmatic areas: Child Sexual Abuse

Prevention, Family Support Programs, and the Safe

Environments for Infants and Toddlers Program. PCAVT

partners with over 250 organizations across Vermont, and

many more both nationally and internationally. PCAVT’s programs

are skills based, teaching adults how to nurture healthy

development in children, and emphasize adult responsibility

in keeping children safe.

For more than 20 years, CDC’s Injury Center has helped

protect Americans from injury and violence. They work to

understand how injury and violence impact all of us and what

we can do to prevent it.

Together with our members, One Credit

Union presented a total of $1,125 in gift cards

for teachers across five schools in our community,

along with supplies that were also

donated.

Schools receiving donations included the

Barre City, Barre Town, Montpelier, Williamstown,

and Roxbury Elementary Schools.

“I couldn’t be prouder of our team in South

Barre, and our members. They recognized a

need in the community and set to task to do

something about it,” stated Smith. “By living

out our commitment to contribute to our

community, success such as this really shows

our brand mantra – Together, we can make a

difference!”

Norwich University Receives $20K Grant from TD Charitable

Foundation for Affordable Shipping Container Homes Project

Norwich University recently received a $20,000 grant from

the TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of

TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, to fund the

development of the Affordable Shipping Container Homes

Project. The Affordable Shipping Container Homes Project

will design affordable housing units with recycled shipping

containers.

Norwich students will develop a site plan with 8-10 cargo

container units and a community building on a 10- acre site

in aitsfield, ermont. Three completed shipping container

homes will be located on this site, which is currently in the

process of setting up an affordable housing community. Another

home will be located in Shelburne, Vermont, and used

as farm worker housing.

ousing need proections from the ermont ffice of conomic

Opportunity and Vermont’s 2016 Point in Time Count

determined that Vermont should add nearly 400 units of new

supportive housing and an additional 1,250 new units of affordable

housing targeted to households with incomes at or

below 30% of the area median income.

In this proect, the five schools in orwich niversity’s

College of Professional Schools – architecture, business, cybersecurity,

engineering and nursing – join the Massachusetts

College of Art and Design, Roger Williams University, the University

of Massachusetts, Amherst and Yestermorrow to explore

issues in affordable housing in a rural environment. Building on

the success of Norwich’s previous housing prototypes, Norwich

students and faculty continually pursue evolved solutions for

community health, accessibility and adaptability.

“e continue to find and develop partnerships within the

university and with outside organizations that align with our

mission to conduct research to understand the relationship between

buildings and occupant health and make refinements

to a tiny house with regard to affordability, transportation, financing,

mechanical systems design and community development,”

Director of Norwich’s Design + Build Collaborative

and School of Architecture + Art, Cara Armstrong. said.

“The innovative approaches that will result from this partnership

to address the issue of affordable housing will be essential

to both creating sustainable, inclusive communities

across New England and empowering people to live with

greater financial confidence, said Phil aniels, Market President

at TD Bank.

The Norwich affordable shipping container home will be

designed and prototyped during the academic year with a

completed build during a 2022 summer program at Yestermorrow,

a design-build school in the Mad River Valley. The

build portion includes four 40-foot-long cargo containers and

a budget to outfit each of them. ach school will work on one

of the containers and build it to net-zero standards.

The students will narrow the designs to one final design,

which will also produce detailed construction drawings so that

the final proect may be replicated.

“A container home prototype and a container home community

village design offers a solution to this crisis and a

model that can be replicated to create an expanded portfolio

of Vermont’s affordable housing,” Armstrong said. “We are so

grateful for TD Charitable Foundation’s continued support of

this important work.”

About the TD Charitable Foundation

of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, one of the

10 largest commercial banking organizations in the United

The Montpelier Development Corporation (MDC)

announces the launch of the “Montpelier Grows” grant – an

exciting new program to recruit and/or support high-impact

businesses to Montpelier. MDC will provide grants of significant

amounts to businesses that commit to make Montpelier

home, and those that plan to grow within Montpelier’s City

limits. The objective of this grant program is to drive economic

growth now and in the future, stimulate commerce, and

enhance employment opportunities in Montpelier. This effort

is aimed at providing support for key businesses that would

operations within Montpelier City limits are also eligible for

the award. Applications from BIPOC and women-owned

businesses are strongly encouraged. To learn more, please

This project is the exciting culmination of the successful

work of MDC and the City of Montpelier’s 5-year charter to

invest and recenter the economic

the community of Montpelier.

Since its inception, MDC has

Central Vermont

Chamber of What?

By CVCC President Kevin Eschelbach

What does the Central Vermont Chamber do? Why do we

need it when Google can provide so much of the information

that Chamber’s across the country can provide? Good questions,

and questions that we here at the Chamber grapple with,

a lot. Some folks think we’re purely a business association,

promoting our member’s interests and advocating on their

behalf. Some believe we’re here purely to promote our area,

to showcase the attractions of Central Vermont and entice

visitors to come see what Central Vermont has to offer. Some

think we’re here to provide technical assistance, marketing

assistance, referrals for services, education, information about

moving here or simply provide meeting places for groups to

meet. While all of this is true, I’d like to answer a question

with a question and ask you, “Did you know?”

Did you know that our website is a platform to discover

recreation activities, local business listings as well as educational

opportunities? If you’re a local, you may ask why you

would need that information. However, as a local, we can

promote your business or organization on our platforms to

reach these visitors. Did you know that our website has an

average of between 400 and 700 visitors a day and our social

media posts reach upwards of 12,000 people per month?

We’re happy to discuss how this can be put to work for you to

promote your business, organization, or event. One local business

reported that after we promoted their grand opening with

a ribbon cutting their website had over 1400 visits over the

next 24 hours.

Did you know there are other ways we can promote your

business? In addition to the above, we offer our member businesses

the opportunity to network with other businesses to

gain clients and find potential mentors. One of our members

joined, attended one of our business mixers and left with more

new clients than he’d gained in the previous month.

If you’re a local, we post job openings as well as helping

find opportunities you may not have known about. On a certain

well known search engine, yes you can search for “stuff

to do.” But, did you know that some of the best, small, locally

owned places won’t show up until page three of the search

due to their size?

For organizations, did you know we have a conference

center available to rent for meetings and events? That everything

mentioned above can draw attention to your organization’s

mission?

The purpose of this article is not to bash any search engine.

They’re good at what they do, and I use them myself. The

purpose of this article is to highlight the differences between

the Chamber and a search engine and to point out that here at

the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce, we’re neighbors

here to help our neighbors. The staff here at the Chamber have

lived in Central Vermont for over 110 years combined. We

have very definite differences of opinion about where to get

the best sandwiches, but one thing is for sure: The Central

Vermont Chamber has never gotten one truck stuck in The

Notch.

Vermont Mutual Named a 2021

Top Growing Business in Vermont

Every year, Vermont Business Magazine acknowledges

Vermont businesses that have exhibited the greatest growth

over the previous year. This year, Vermont Mutual Insurance

Group® was named one of the top 25 companies demonstrating

the greatest growth in the state.

Dan Bridge, Vermont Mutual’s President and CEO, stated

“At Vermont Mutual, success starts with exceptional employees

and superior independent agency partners. We’re fortunate

to have both and that has allowed us to grow and remain a

financially secure company for our customers, employees and

independent agents.”

Vermont Mutual’s Executive Vice President and COO,

Mark McDonnell, added “Growth isn’t always synonymous

with success. With that idea in mind, we approach business

growth in a measured and strategic manner, with an emphasis

on balancing growth and profit. It’s particularly satisfying to

see that strategy allowed us to excel even during the incredibly

trying times that accompanied the pandemic.”

The Vermont Business Growth Awards is presented annually

by Vermont Business Magazine and KeyBank, acknowledging

twenty-five Vermont businesses that have experienced

the greatest growth over the past five years according to

VBM’s Vermont 100+ published each January.

Chartered in 1828, Vermont Mutual Insurance Group® is

one of the ten oldest mutual property/casualty insurers in the

United States and provides coverage throughout New England

and upstate New York. Through more than 400 independent

agencies, the Group insures over 315,000 policyholders, with

a direct written premium of more than $500,000,000. The

group is rated “A+ Superior” by A. M. Best and a Ward’s Top

50 performing property/casualty insurer in the U.S. for the

past thirteen consecutive years.

On Sunday, October 10, 2021

at 3:00:00 p.m., Linda Radtke

will be speaking at Community

Room at the Brown Public Library

on “From the Parlor to

the Polling Place: Stories and

Songs from the Suffragists.”

Singer and historian Linda

Radtke, in period garb and

“Votes for Women” sash, celebrates

the centennial of the

passage of the 19th Amendment,

specifically highlighting

the decades-long persistence

of Vermonters, both women

and men. Radtke also traces

the movement’s alignment with

other social justice initiatives

such as temperance, labor conditions,

wage equity, peace, and

children’s welfare. Both the

songs and stories in Radtke’s

engaging presentation, accompanied

by pianist Cameron

Steinmetz, highlight Vermonters’

efforts from 1840-1921,

as they lobbied in churches, at

“parlor meetings” at town halls

and at the State House for total

enfranchisement.

This talk is free, open to the

public, and accessible to those

with disabilities. For more information,

contact Diane McKain

at (802) 522-4900 or woodyd@tds.net.

This presentation is sponsored

by the Vermont Humanities

through its Speakers Bureau

program. In addition to

providing public talks, the Vermont

Humanities sponsors book discussion

programs, a wide array of literacy programs,

and other humanities events statewide. The

Vermont Humanities seeks to engage all Vermonters

in the world of ideas, foster a culture

of thoughtfulness and inspire a lifelong love

ublications and ecords Commission

Secretary of State Jim Condos and State

Archivist Tanya Marshall announced that the

Vermont State Archives and Records Administration

(VSARA), a division of the Secretary

of State’s ffice, has been awarded a ,

grant to support initiatives of the State Archives’

Vermont Historical Records Program.

This State Board Programming Grant, received

in collaboration with the Vermont

Historical Records Advisory Board, is funded

by the National Historical Publications and

Records Commission (NHPRC), a statutory

body affiliated with the ational rchives and

Records Administration (NARA).

“Our historic and public records teach us

critical lessons about our unique Vermont

past,” said Condos. “Their proper preservation

is critical, and I am grateful for this funding

opportunity from NHPRC, supporting the

important work happening through our State

Archives’ Vermont Historical Records Program.”

The mission of the Vermont Historical Records

Program (VHRP) is to improve public

access to and engagement with Vermont’s historical

records and to encourage or facilitate

collaborative efforts among historical records

repositories in Vermont. This grant will be

used to purchase equipment and supplies in

support of several new initiatives: a mobile

and a collections care equipment lending program.

These resources will complement the

technical assistance provided by VHRP staff,

which includes site visits from the Roving

Archivist, workshops and training sessions

held virtually and throughout the state. The

grant will also fund additional workshops on

digital preservation and hands-on collections

salvage, led by subject specialists.

“It is essential for Vermont and its historical

records repositories to have sustainable

assistance and support and we are grateful

for the opportunities this additional funding

provides,” says Marshall, who also chairs the

Vermont Historical Records Advisory Board

(VHRAB).

The NHPRC’s ongoing support, combined

with support from the Secretary of State’s Office,

makes it possible for the P to continue

to build statewide capacity to preserve

and provide access to Vermont’s rich documentary

heritage.

Nearly Every U.S. Nursing

Home and Assisted Living

Community Is Facing a

Workforce Crisis

The American Health Care Association and National

Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), representing

more than 14,000 nursing homes and long term care facilities

across the country, released a survey of nursing home and

assisted living providers across the U.S. Results from the

survey highlight an urgent need for Congress to address the

labor shortage facing the long term care industry.

Key findings include:

• 86 percent of nursing homes and 77 percent of assisted living

providers said their workforce situation has gotten worse

over the last three months.

• Nearly every nursing home (99 percent) and assisted living

facility (96 percent) in the U.S. is facing a staffing shortage.

59 percent of nursing homes and nearly one-third of assisted

living providers are experiencing a high level of staffing

shortages.

• More than 7 out of 10 nursing homes and assisted living

communities said a lack of qualified candidates and unemployment

benefits have been the biggest obstacles in hiring

new staff.

• Due to these shortages, nearly every nursing home and

assisted living community is asking staff to work overtime or

extra shifts. Nearly 70 percent of nursing homes are having to

hire expensive agency staff. 58 percent of nursing homes are

limiting new admissions.

• 78 percent of nursing homes and 71 percent of assisted living

facilities are concerned workforce challenges might force

them to close. More than one-third of nursing homes are very

concerned about having to shut down their facility(ies).

“The survey demonstrates the severe workforce challenges

long term care providers are facing due to the COVID-19

pandemic. Too many facilities are struggling to hire and retain

staff that are needed to serve millions of vulnerable residents,”

said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL.

“Lawmakers across the country must prioritize long term care

and that begins with providing resources to address workforce

challenges. When facilities have the means to offer competitive

wages and training programs, workers will follow. We

have laid out key proposals in our Care for Our Seniors Act,

which will allow us to boost our workforce, but without the

help from Congress and state legislators, this will not be possible.”

Parkinson said the reconciliation package currently under

construction is an appropriate vehicle for Congress to fund a

long term solution to addressing chronic staffing shortages in

nursing homes and other long term care facilities.

“Congress has the opportunity right now, through budget

reconciliation, to include meaningful investments in long term

care, which will help address key staffing challenges. Our

caregivers are the backbone of long term care, and they

deserve the full support of our lawmakers. We cannot allow

facilities to close because of these challenges, which will

directly impact residents and their families, especially when

lawmakers have the means to help solve this dire situation,”

concluded Parkinson.

CVHHH to Mandate

COVID-19 Vaccines for

Staff and Volunteers

Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice (CVHHH) is

taking an additional step to further protect the health and

safety of its employees and community. As of Friday, October

1, 2021, CVHHH will require all employees (clinicians,

administrative, part-time, and per-diem staff, and volunteers)

to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly

testing at its headquarters on Granger Road, Berlin. CVHHH

staff were made aware of this mandate at the end of August.

In putting this mandate in place, CVHHH’s leadership team

considered several factors. First and foremost, CVHHH is

taking all reasonable steps, as it has from the start of the pandemic,

to protect the health and safety of its patients and

employees. The highly contagious Delta variant is causing

spikes in COVID-19 cases statewide and in CVHHH’s service

area, and vaccines are the most effective way to reduce the

spread of the coronavirus. CVHHH has a responsibility as an

employer and community-based healthcare provider to take

this step. In addition, CVHHH wants to provide a consistent

experience across the care continuum to the many patients it

shares with its healthcare partners, including Central Vermont

Medical Center and local medical group practices. CVHHH’s

mandate is consistent with mandate adopted by the UVM

Health Network.

Sandy Rousse, CVHHH’s President & CEO: “CVHHH’s

commitment to Central Vermont is stronger than ever, and we

continue to support pandemic efforts by providing COVID-19

vaccinations and boosters. CVHHH will continue to use the

tools at our disposal – wearing appropriate personal protective

equipment (PPE) with clients, screening staff and patients,

and now, mandating vaccines for staff – to further reduce the

spread of this virus. We are here for you, Central Vermont, and

we thank you for choosing us for your home-care needs.”

About CVHHH

Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice (CVHHH) is a

full-service, not-for-profit Visiting Nurse Association committed

to providing high-quality, medically necessary home

health and hospice care to all central Vermonters, regardless

of ability to pay. CVHHH also provides long-term care and

health promotion services. To learn more about CVHHH’s

services, visit www.cvhhh.org.

Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is an initiative

(ALA) in collaboration with the Association

for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL).

Immigration from Latin America to the

United States has been a disaster for our

Hemisphere.

It is true that some immigrants are criminals.

But that’s only a tiny part of the problem.

The vast majority of immigrants are not

criminals at all, of course. In fact, they are the

best and bravest people in Latin America.

That’s the real problem with endless immigration.

Guatemala, Mexico, and Cuba have

lost generations of their brightest and most

ambitious young people to the United States.

And those countries are suffering for it.

And how about the unfortunate immigrants

themselves? They are likely to find that the

United States is indeed a land of opportunity.

And so they work. And work. And work.

They are in a country where they don’t quite

speak the language and don’t quite belong so

they focus on work and money even more

than Americans do. They end up with more

material possessions but not necessarily more

happiness.

Young Oliver Stone understood this. He

explores all three of these immigration problems

in one extraordinary character. Tony

Montana is the greatest Latin American

immigrant in cinema history. And “Scarface”

is an underrated classic.

“Scarface” is three hours long. But I wish

it were six hours long because I love spending

time with Tony Montana.

When we meet Tony (Al Pacino), he is a

fearless, ruthless Cuban criminal who just

arrived in Miami. His ego is as huge as his

ambition.

It is 1981, so the quickest path to riches is

cocaine distribution. Before long, Tony is

working for a mid-level coke distributor

named Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia). But

Tony Montana wants to take Frank’s place.

And take his beautiful girlfriend Elvira

(Michelle Pfeiffer).

I really like what screenwriter Oliver Stone

did with Michelle Pfeiffer’s character.

Normally in a movie like this, Elvira and

Tony would start off happy and be destroyed

by drugs and distrust. In “Scarface,” Elvira

has no arc; she starts off miserable and stays

equally miserable throughout. It is an important

lesson for everyone

looking for a

soulmate: if you start

going out with an

unhappy druggie, it

is likely that she will

remain an unhappy

druggie until you

break up.

But “Scarface” is

beloved by middle

aged guys because of Tony Montana. Al

Pacino is a great actor and a great over-actor.

Tony is the perfect character for him.

Tony makes over-the-top philosophical

speeches about power, ambition, and money

– like a working-class Gordon Gekko. But

Tony is also a complex human being, with

vulnerabilities and moral lines that he refuses

to cross.

I love everything about this movie: the

humor, the violence, the synthesizer-driven

soundtrack. To me, “Scarface” is the best

crime picture that wasn’t directed by Scorsese.

And, above all, “Scarface” takes an

unflinching and insightful look at the problems

of immigration. Would the Western

Hemisphere have been better off if Tony

Montana had stayed in Cuba? Probably.

Would Tony have been better off if he had

never come to Miami? Definitely.

AHCA/NCAL Applauds CDC, FDA for Approving a Pfizer Booster Shot for

Long Term Care Residents, Workers

The American Health Care Association and National

Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), representing

more than 14,000 nursing homes and assisted living communities

across the country that provide care to approximately

five million people each year, released the following statement

in response to the recommendations by the Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Food

and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve a booster shot of

the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for certain groups of

individuals, including residents and health care workers in

long term care.

The following statement is attributable to Dr. David

Gifford, chief medical officer of AHCA/NCAL:

“On behalf of the long term care industry, we appreciate the

FDA and CDC for recognizing the threat of waning COVID-

19 immunity and high-risk exposure. The FDA and CDC’s

review of the data reiterates how incredibly effective and safe

the COVID-19 vaccines are and how the booster shot will

help continue to keep our residents and staff safe. This decision

is another layer of protection that we need to fight this

virus that uniquely targets our vulnerable long term care

population.

“Long term care facilities stand ready to help facilitate

booster shots to those residents and staff who received the

Pfizer vaccine earlier this year. Virtually all nursing homes

and some assisted living communities already have steady

access to COVID-19 vaccines through a long term care pharmacy,

and we anticipate the booster shot process will be

fairly straightforward and the vaccines will be available

quickly for these providers.

“For those assisted living communities and other senior

living settings that may not have a relationship with a long

term care pharmacy, we appreciate the federal government

helping many of these providers connect with a specific local

pharmacy or vaccine provider. We also call on state governments

to help coordinate distribution and administration of

booster shots to these senior living settings.

“Long term care facilities are diverse, so a one-size-fits-all

approach will not work for a booster shot rollout. We must

consider things like the size and location of the facility, the

acuity of the residents, the number of new admissions, and

more. AHCA/NCAL continues to engage with public health

officials to help advise and streamline the process for administering

booster shots considering these factors.

“We also recognize that we must continue to increase vaccination

rates, especially among our long term care workers.

These efforts have never waned, and we continue to make

progress every day. The data also shows that cases in nursing

homes will persist when community transmission is high.

Therefore, we need a collective approach to improve vaccine

confidence and uptake in every community.”

Suicide Prevention

Awareness Month – Know

How to Make a Difference

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness

Month, and the state’s mental health and public health officials

are asking all Vermonters to take this time to learn about

the supports available for themselves or people they know

who may be at risk of suicide.

Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death in Vermont, and

the second leading cause of death among Vermonters ages 15

to 34.

Deputy Commissioner of Mental Health Alison Krompf

stated that suicide prevention is a primary concern for the

state. “Far too many of us have experienced these losses firsthand,”

said Krompf. “Reaching out, staying connected,

checking in with each other – all of these are important pieces

in how we care for one another. Our sense of community in

Vermont is strong and enduring, and each of us play an important

part in reducing the risk of suicide.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a host of additional

challenges and stressors, from isolation to the ability to access

and provide direct services, especially for people who are suffering

or living with additional risk factors.

Krompf noted that the key to successful support ranges

from the use of professional services, to building and maintaining

community connection, to projects like Zero Suicide

that involve all touch points throughout the healthcare system

and society. “We understand the need to ensure we have supports

and services available, which is why we are emphasizing

the importance of our statewide network of community

mental health workers and community-based partners. The

goal is for Vermonters to have help available anytime and

anywhere.”

“Being present and knowing how to recognize the warning

signs when someone is in crisis can make the difference

between tragedy and a loved one getting the help they need,”

said Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. “Just as we

have seen with the substance use crisis, it’s important for

families, friends and peers to be there for the people you know

and love. Suicide is a complex problem, which means preventing

suicide must occur at the individual, interpersonal,

community and societal levels.”

Vermonters can tap into a broad range of resources, including

the state’s network of local designated and specialized

service agencies, and national services such as the Trevor

Project and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which

provide 24/7 support.

“Suicide is not just a mental health issue; it’s also a public

health issue. Let’s take this opportunity to normalize the way

we connect around our mental health needs,” said Krompf. “A

quick call, a short message – these small acts matter.”

If you, or someone you know is thinking about or planning

to take their own life, there is help available:

• Call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-

8255. Counselors are available 24/7 to provide free and confidential

support. In an emergency, you can also call 9-1-1 or

go to your nearest emergency department. Visit vtspc.org/

suicide-resources/get-help/ for additional resources.

• Text the Crisis Text Line – text “VT” to 741741 anywhere

in the U.S. about any type of crisis. Get immediate counseling

and support through text messaging.

• Trevor Project: LGBTQ+ Crisis Lifeline: 1-866-488-7368

• Veteran’s Crisis Line: 1-800-273-8255 Press 1

• 10 community mental health centers located around the

state offer crisis services and ongoing supports. Go to mentalhealth.vermont.gov/individuals-and-families.

• Talk to a family member, friend, health care provider, a

faith leader, teacher or coach

Asking someone about suicide, or talking about it, does not

increase the risk of suicide. Whatever the concern, it is important

to talk with children, teens, and young adults early, listen

non-judgmentally, and offer help when someone is struggling

or comes to you for support. This connection can give them a

chance to discuss it again in the future.

Visiting the Keep at the Crown Point Fort

Dear Editor

Last week my family revisited the old ruins of the French

fort at Crown Point. There are only foundations left. We

looked at the signs that told of the former bulwarks of that

fortress. The drawings showed the citadel of that fort.

The Word of God tells us that God is our rock, our fortress,

our high tower, and our refuge. The purpose of that citadel

was for it to be the “keep of the castle.” It was the safest place

• • •

within the walls of that defensive position. God says that He

will protect the Christian in His high tower, and the diagrams

at that fort provide object lessons to the safety the Lord gives

to His children.

I hope that your readers will cross the bridge to NY and see

the diagrams of the “keep” of that fort.

Yours for the citizens of VT,

Dan Manka

In Regards To Commission Porter Leaving Fish And Wildlife Department

The professional organization that represents fish and wildlife

departments nationwide, the Association of Fish and

Wildlife Agencies, calls for a transformation to meet the

changing times. However, those who head up the VT Fish &

Wildlife Dept (FWD) seem stuck in the past. Vermont surveys

conducted by the Center for Rural Studies show that

Vermonters don’t support many of FWD’s core positions

(think recreational trapping). In a 2018 survey conducted by

Colorado State University, FWD staff indicated that management

isn’t doing enough to address change. The dramatic

drops in hunting and trapping license sales are evidence that

the times are changing in very significant ways. The FWD

must evolve in order to remain relevant and to attract new

sources of income. This is not the time for a commissioner to

Youth Written Letter

Over the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Vermont provided

a free motel room to any Vermonter experiencing homelessness

through the GA Motel Program.

On July 1st, the state of Vermont made the decision to exit

upwards of seven hundred Vermonters from this program.

People were handed a tent and told to leave the motel.

According to one hotel worker in Berlin, VT, “People are

(sleeping) out at the Hubbard dog park” now. Another motel

worker from Cambridge, VT, mentioned that “a lot of people

are living in campgrounds with their kids’’. This is unacceptable.

It is especially unacceptable because there is federal FEMA

money that would completely pay for the continuation of the

motel program until December 31st. Why are we not using

this to support the most vulnerable Vermonters? There is no

excuse not to act right now.

The motel program could have been utilized to help

Vermont on the path to end homelessness. If we were to invest

in transitional and permanent housing and transition people

directly from motel to housing, we could drastically reduce

homelessness. We could also invest in social services to be

utilized at the motels to support people, leading to more people

reaching stability.

Across the state, motel owners overwhelmingly support

continuing the motel program. Out of the 62 motels we got

contact with across the state who participated in the GA Motel

Program, all except two support the program continuing into

the future. One motel owner explained how “the ideal situation

isn’t living in a one room motel room...but it’s a great

short term solution, we feel very proud and happy to have

people stay with us. We wanted to create a home for people

who didn’t have it”. Motel owners lamented the ending of the

motel program; the absence of clients with whom they had

become close; the knowledge that people are on the streets in

the cold.

On September 23rd, the motel program is again getting cut

back drastically yet again, with a very human cost. Upwards

of five hundred people will be kicked out, including families,

all the while the COVID case count is greater than what it was

at the start of the pandemic. Governor Scott, we call on you to:

1. Accept the federal money being offered to the state.

2. Reinstate the GA Motel Program through December

3. .Commit to keeping people safely and consistently

housed, no excuses, when the time comes to transition out.

To not act to address homelessness is an unconscionable

decision for Vermont. We cannot allow winter to roll around

with people sleeping on the streets, especially with the Delta

Variant raging. To not act would completely reverse all the

good work Vermont has done to support residents during the

pandemic. It is all too possible in this society to not care for

people who are most vulnerable; no longer can we fall prey to

this system. We challenge anyone who believes that making

people homeless is okay to sleep just one night homeless

themselves; it is inhuman to wish this upon anyone, but it’s

also all too easy to ignore this issue and it’s time we’re moved

to action through empathy. Anyone who doesn’t believe in

ending homelessness is only falling into a rut of inhumanity

that will not only be harming others, but also inevitably harm-

simply maintain the status quo. This is a time for a new commissioner

to be responsive to the 1,000 Vermont species that

have been identified as species of greatest conservation need.

A new commissioner must recognize the threats of climate

change and focus resources to address the highest priorities and

not maintain FWD’s direction on cruise control. A new commissioner

must be able to transform the FWD to address today’s

challenges; that includes reaching across the aisle and working

with all Vermonters, not just hunters and trappers. I urge

Governor Scott to appoint a new commissioner who is capable

of tackling today’s and tomorrow’s issues. All Vermonters

deserve to be represented. Our wildlife cannot wait.

Moving From Fossil Fuels to Renewables is the Key to Stopping Climate Change

A recent piece by anti-renewable energy crusader Annette

Smith asks, “Is Electrifying Everything a Climate Solution?”

For those of us concerned about the changing climate’s

increasing number of floods, wildfires, hurricanes and recordbreaking

temperatures the answer is YES!

While reductions in overall energy use are key to solving

the climate crisis, continued energy use for transportation and

heating and cooling our homes is inevitable. Energy use for

heating and cooling our homes and transportation use currently

account for almost 75% of Vermont’s greenhouse gas

emissions because they are largely dependent on fossil fuels.

Helping Vermonters replace the polluting fossil-fuel technology

they already use with more efficient technologies powered

by homegrown renewable energy is a critical climate

solution and a major challenge requiring sustained focus.

This focus on reducing Vermont’s global-warming pollution

requires completely rethinking Vermont’s dependence on

• • •

ing themselves, as our society moves forward and acknowledges

that human rights are the key to our overall well being.

Vermont has an obligation to act now to continue the GA

Motel Program, which will help us address homelessness in

the long term and provide stability for thousands of Vermonters

in need.

We do not want to grow up in a state that turns a blind eye

towards people who need support. We do not want to grow up

in a state that sticks with the status quo when there is overwhelming

evidence and hundreds of advocates and state leaders

saying we need to shift from that. We do not want to grow

up in a state that doesn’t care about people who are suffering.

It is far time that we changed our mindsets and made our state

a model in addressing the homelessness crisis. We hope you,

Governor Scott, will take action before people leave the program

on September 23rd. It is up to you.

Signed,

a clean energy future with more mass transportation, public

dollars to support weatherizing our homes, an increased reliance

on in state renewable energy sources like solar and wind

backed up by battery storage and so much more. All while

improving our energy security with an electrical grid less

vulnerable to existing climate-changed chaos.

Ms. Smith states that “The assumption is that building

more renewables and transitioning to electricity as the primary

energy source will result in emissions reductions.” This

isn’t just an assumption, the connection between the transition

to clean, renewable energy and lower emissions is backed up

by reams of data gathered over decades.

Why is there a worker shortage?

By Jack Hoffman

The Washington Post recently tackled the question a lot of

people have been talking about. The headline read: “Why

America has 8.4 million unemployed when there are 10 million

job openings.”

What was refreshing about the Post story was that it didn’t

offer the usual explanation about the mismatch between jobs

and job skills, which seems to lay the blame for worker shortages

on the workers. Instead, according to the Post, the mismatch

is between the jobs on offer and jobs workers want.

Maybe the tide is turning. Maybe the demand for employees

is reaching the point where they not only can ask for better pay,

but also for meaningful work.

Almost since the start of the pandemic, we’ve heard and

read anecdotes about people rethinking work after COVID-19

upended their lives:

• Frontline workers—people in close, daily contact with the

general public—questioned whether they were being paid

enough, not only for the risks they took, but given the real value

of the services they were providing, like making sure there was

safe food on grocery shelves.

• People with the good fortune to be able to work from home

started re-evaluating “the workplace.” The ride or drive to work

was so routine that many of us didn’t think about how much

time was getting eaten up going back and forth. Stay-at-home

orders broke that habit, and it turned out travel time could be

put to better use—at least a few days a week.

• Then there were people who lost lousy jobs—jobs that

neither paid an adequate wage nor offered any personal fulfillment.

Unemployment benefits—both state and federal—gave

them a break from the drudgery, at least for a little while, and

perhaps the opportunity to find something better.

The Washington Post backed up some of these stories with

numbers that suggest workers have simply left jobs in certain

Climate Change continued from previous page

Attorney General Donovan has joined a coalition of 21

attorneys general filing an amicus brief in Planned Parenthood

South Atlantic v. Wilson arguing that South Carolina’s “fetal

heartbeat” abortion regulations harm women’s healthcare as a

whole, and that a lower court’s ruling blocking the law should

be upheld. The coalition also argues that the impact of numerous

states across the country enacting restrictive abortion

laws, or eliminating access to abortions, harms healthcare

nationwide.

“Women have a right to safe healthcare. Not only are ‘fetal

heartbeat’ laws unconstitutional, they would have a negative

impact on women’s healthcare,” said Attorney General

Donovan.

In February 2021, South Carolina passed the South

Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act

that prohibits abortions upon the detection of an embryonic or

fetal heartbeat, effectively banning abortion after six weeks.

Immediately following the passage of the Act, Planned

Parenthood South Atlantic filed suit seeking a temporary

injunction, which the federal district court granted.

In their amicus brief, the coalition argues that access to safe

and legal abortion is an essential component of women’s

healthcare and restrictive abortion lead to worse health outcomes

for women. The coalition also argues that laws banning

abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat have

fields. The Post compared job openings in various industries

with the number of unemployed people who used to work in

those industries. Professional and business services, for example,

had 1.8 million jobs openings. Presumably, before the

pandemic, all or most of those jobs were filled. But the Post

found that only 921,000 people who were unemployed reported

that their most recent job had been in professional and business

services.

It would appear, therefore, that almost half of the people who

used to do that kind of work either found jobs in other fields or

left the labor force. Professional and business services had the

biggest gap between available jobs and people with experience

seeking those jobs, but the Post showed that other industries

were suffering from worker shortages, too.

Employers have had the upper hand for a long, long, time.

But that may be changing as employers want to get their businesses

going again, and they simply have to pay more and offer

better working conditions to get the help they need.

It’s also possible, thanks to the federal supplemental unemployment

benefits, federal stimulus payments and tax credits,

and help from state government, we rediscovered how much

Attorney General Donovan Files Amicus to Fight for Abortion Rights

harmful spillover effects on miscarriage treatment and other

healthcare needs.

Additionally, Attorney General Donovan and his colleagues

argue that the restrictions the Act places on women

could also threaten residents of neighboring states as well as

those states’ healthcare systems, explaining, “South Carolina’s

restrictive abortion laws will cause its citizens to seek abortion

care in [neighboring states], potentially straining their

healthcare systems.” The coalition further says, “[g]iven that

numerous states across the country have enacted similarly

restrictive or more restrictive legislation than South Carolina’s

Act … [and] [i]f access to safe and lawful abortions were

banned in large geographic portions of the country, it would

create vast ‘abortion deserts’ in which access to abortion care

may be unobtainable for many people due to the obstacles

created by the sheer distance from lawful abortion care.”

Joining Attorney General Donovan in filing the amicus

brief are the attorneys general of California, Colorado,

Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine,

Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada,

New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania,

Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington. A copy of the

amicus brief can be found here: https://ago.vermont.gov/wp-

The Couture Farm in Barre Town is Transformed into

The Celebration Barn at Millstone Hill

When Pierre Couture and his sister Frankie Brassard purchased

the historic Couture/Wheeler Farm on Littlejohn Rd.

in Websterville from their siblings 12 years ago, they were not

quite sure what would become of the 200 year old barn that

the family had operated as a dairy farm since the 1930’s. “Our

first priority was to restore the brick farmhouse to it’s

original condition. My parents had modernized the interior in

, removing the fireplaces, original doors and woodwork,

and changing the oorplan considerably, a decision they later

regretted,” explains Frankie Brassard. “With the help of old

photographs, our childhood memories, and a visit to the former

Rinker farmhouse on Taplin Rd., a twin of the of the old

Wheeler home, we were able to pretty much restore the house

to its original condition.” Shortly after, they opened the home

to the public as a bed and breakfast, an expansion of the lodging

they were already offering at the Lodge at Millstone Hill

next door. Throughout this time, they watched the old barn

further deteriorate and struggled to come up with a plan that

would allow them to stabilize and restore the structure. “We

had been using the barn for storage and always kept a good

roof on it, but every year we could see the structure become

less and less stable,” added Brassard. “We realized it was just

a matter of time before we lost the barn altogether.”

Over the years, hundreds of weddings and events had been

staged at The Lodge, usually in rented tents. Five years ago,

it was decided that the old barn’s conversion into a wedding

barn and events center might be the best hope for its salvation.

“The challenge was to find a way to save the historic structure

without destroying it. Often the conversion of an old barn into

its new use, results in the loss of its architectural and historic

integrity. We were determined not to let that happen,” adds

Couture. “The plan we came up with, was to keep most of

the interior of the main barn intact and use it only for summer

events, while completely disassembling the other structures

added over the decades. We carefully preserved every piece

of salvageable lumber for reuse in the additions we planned

for the structure. The milking parlor, for example, which my

father had added to the east side of the barn in the 1940’s, was

dismantled piece by piece, and rebuilt on a new foundation, on

the same footprint, using all the original rafters and as much of

the original lumber as possible. This time, however, the roof

was raised two feet to provide additional main oor space. ll

of the new structures are insulated and heated, to allow for

year-round use. This provides us with space during the warmer

months for up to 150 people and during the colder months for

smaller events and meetings.”

fter two years spent securing the financing for the proect

and obtaining all the needed state and local permits, the project

began in earnest during the summer of 2. hile the

structures were being transformed, the duo went to work recreating

the old farmyard into an extensive pond, water works

and perennial gardens, in hope of providing a setting worthy

of the buildings they had designed. Like all projects of this

size, progress moved slower than anticipated, with unexpected

delays caused by Covid, major health problems by three of

their primary subcontractors, and the challenge of rounding

up the necessary materials needed to meet their commitment

of completing the renovation using only repurposed lumber

and building supplies whenever possible. The historic windows,

doors and hardware they installed during the renovation,

makes it nearly impossible for anyone visiting the site to

figure out ust what is original and what was added during the

last four years.

The end result is a complex of structures, which though

• • •

varied, creates a unified whole that is magical and takes full

advantage of the stunning views that the site provides. “Growing

up we thought every kid had a backyard like this,” adds

Couture. “We have come to realize that the site is really special,

with views etending to ay Peak, almost miles away.

We think the setting will be hard to beat.” Three generations

of the Couture family will be on site to answer question, at the

official opening and open house on Sunday, ctober rd from

11 a.m. to 5 p.m. They hope that anyone planning an upcoming

wedding, end of life celebration, shower, or family event

will stop by to see what Millstone Hill’s new Celebration Barn

has to offer.

feedback to the playwright, actor, and artistic directors.

LNT is thrilled to “begin again” with live-in-person audiences

Fall Fun on the Cabot Farm Trail

By CompassVermont.com

A relative newcomer to the boxed mac

and cheese market, Cabot got the blue ribbon

from Redbook Magazine, who chose

Cabot Bacon and Cheddar Mac and Cheese

over Annie’s, Kraft, Trader Joe’s Cheetos,

and two others.

Redbook argues that boxed mac and cheese

has evolved, and the best brands now need to

be “creamy, and every bite needs to be full of

cheesy goodness.” They also argue that the

size of the noodles can’t be too small.

While swooning over Annie’s Shells and

White Cheddar, waxing nostalgically about

the signature bright orange Kraft sauce, and

giving bigger noodles a nod in Cheetos Bold

and Cheesy, Redbook gave the top prize to Cabot Bacon and

Cheddar Mac and Cheese.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: ANA’S HOMEMADE FRENCH FRIES

Folks looking for classic autumn outings need to look no

further than the Cabot Farm Trail which showcases the co-operative’s

farm families across New England and upstate New

York who offer on-farm experiences of all kinds. From corn

mazes to baked goods, there’s no shortage of options.

“The Cabot Farm Trail has been very popular since it was

launched at the beginning of the summer,” states Rose Gomez,

Member Marketing Integrator. “Fall is a perfect time to

visit farms whether folks are looking for an activity like a corn

maze and pick your own apples or to purchase delicious local

produce and baked items like sweet corn and cider donut.”

Cabot is owned by hundreds of dairy farms families in the

Northeast and many of them have offerings beyond the highquality

milk that goes into the “World’s Best Cheddar.

People can use the newly launched web page to find farms

with farm stays, farm stands, corn mazes and other businesses

that welcome visitors. The website can be filtered by geography,

season, interest, and activity, families can create their

own perfect summer getaway.

Cabot has grown from a single butter plant in the town of

Cabot to four creameries producing over one thousand varieties

of dairy products and cheeses being distributed in every

state and 22 countries. Since its founding, all profits have been

returned to the farm families who own the co-op—a practice

that continues to this day. Cabot Creamery Co-operative has

been in continuous operation in Vermont since 1919, and

makes a full line of cheeses, Greek yogurt, sour cream, cottage

cheese and butter. Widely known as makers of “The World’s

Best Cheddar,” Cabot is a cooperative of hundreds of dairy

farm families of Agri-Mark, the Northeast’s premier dairy

cooperative. Agri-Mark/Cabot farms are located throughout

New England and upstate New York. For more information,

visit: http://www.cabotcheese.coop.

Here’s what they said:

“With their original cheese being one of the best on

the market, it’s safe to say that their Cabot Bacon Cheddar

Mac & Cheese lives up to the hype. The brand combines

a Smoky Bacon Cheddar with their organic shells

for ‘lip-smacking, bacony bliss.’ The cheese really

won us over with just the right texture of creaminess

and without tasting artificial. If you don’t have time to

make your own recipe from scratch, Cabot’s will give

you that homemade taste that’s hard to come by.”

Trader Joe’s Macaroni and Cheese was also mentioned

by Redbook for their Wisconsin Cheddar

brand. But, unsurprisingly to Vermonters, it came in

fourth.

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

Montpelier’s Capital City Concerts to Resume Concerts

Beginning this Fall in Montpelier, Burlington and Waterbury

After an 18-month-long pandemic hiatus, Montpelier’s

Capital City Concerts plans to resume concerts beginning this

fall in Montpelier, Burlington and Waterbury.

“I have longed for the immediacy, intimacy, and power of

sharing live music with our beloved audience, so it is a joy

to bring news of our 2021-2022 season!” said Karen Kevra,

Capital City Concerts founder and Artistic Director.

The season opens the weekend of October 23-24 when the

Boston-based Borromeo Quartet returns for concerts in Montpelier

and Burlington. The Borromeo Quartet has been hailed

for its “edge-of-the-seat performances,” by the Boston Globe,

which called it “simply the best.” The major work on the

program will be Beethoven’s Opus 132 String Quartet. “This

transcendent work is Beethoven’s musical journey through

illness and healing. Truly I can’t think of a more appropriate,

and deeply moving return to Capital City Concerts,” said

Kevra.

On Friday, April 8, Solaris, the superb double-dozen vocal

ensemble led by Dawn Willis will perform a concert celebrating

spring and rebirth.

On May 21, Capital City Concerts returns to its J.S. Bach

roots in a sublime concert of sonatas, arias, and the ebullient

Brandenburg Concerto #5 in D major. The all-star line-up includes

soprano Hyunah Yu, violinist Theodore Arm, violist

Stefanie Taylor, cellist Edward Arron, bassist Lou Kosma, pianist

eewon Park, and utists aren evra and illian eed.

Capital City Concerts is committed to the safety, health,

and comfort of the community, so a few changes related to the

pandemic can be expected. The Unitarian Church of Montpelier,

which has been the home of Capital City Concerts for

two decades, has paused rentals, so alternative venues have

been arranged. The majority of concerts will take place at

a significantly larger venue, Montpelier’s ethany nited

Church of Christ. Audience-size will be limited to prevent

overcrowding and other protocols such as mask-wearing may

be implemented. Consult www.capitalcityconcerts.org prior

to each concert for updates.

Also new this season, Capital City Concerts is offering

on-demand remote concert broadcasts. This pay-as-you-can

ticket gives you admission for a two-week period beginning

on each concert weekend. Minimum ticket price is just $15.

Live concert tickets may be converted to an on-demand ticket

in the event that a ticket holder is unable to attend the live

concert by sending a request to info@capitalcityconcerts.org.

To order in person or on-demand tickets, and to learn more

about Capital City Concerts upcoming season go to www.

capitalcityconcerts.org. Please note, due to Covid-related

challenges advance sale tickets will only be available online

this year. No advance sale tickets will be sold at Bear Pond

Books. Capital City Concerts will absorb the ticket surcharge

this season so that customers will only pay the at-the-door

price.

Capital City Concerts’ popular Muse Mentors podcast will

continue this fall. For more information and to access all previous

episodes, go to www.musementors.com.

ARIES (March 21 to

April 19) You’ll soon have

a chance to take a big

step up from where you

are to where you want to

be. Check it out first. Remember:

Even the Mountain Sheep looks before it leaps.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week brings a challenge

that could determine the future direction of your

life. If you’re ready for a change, accept it with confidence.

A loved one supports your decision.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A disruption creates a delay

in completing your projects. Use this time to pursue

a personal matter you were too busy to deal with before.

You’ll find it will be time well spent.

CANCER ( June 21 to July 22) You still need to be on the

alert for any signs of problems that could create serious

misunderstandings. A more positive aspect begins to

emerge toward the week’s end. Be patient.

LEO ( July 23 to August 22) With things slowing down a

bit this week, it would be a good time for luxury-loving

Leonines to go somewhere for some well-earned pampering.

Things liven up around Friday.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Single Virgos looking

for partners are finally getting a break from Venus,

who has moved in to make things happen. Attached Virgos

see their relationships blossom.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You’ve been working

hard to get things done. Now take a breather and

recheck your next step. You might want to make some

changes in view of the news that comes your way.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The watchword

for savvy Scorpios this week is “preparation.” Consider

sharpening your skills to make the most of the new opportunity

you’re about to take on.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) There

might still be some loose ends that need tucking up if you

hope to get that important relationship repaired. A new

spurt of activity starts soon.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) It’s a good

idea to keep the positive momentum going by finding and

getting rid of anything that could cause you to stumble.

Keep the path ahead clear and open.

AQUARIUS ( January 20 to February 18) A period of contemplation

is advised before you make your next move.

Be sure that where you decide to go is the right place for

you. A health matter needs attention.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) That new energy

surge that hit you last week continues to send out good

vibrations. Try investing a part of it in creating something

noteworthy on the job.

BORN THIS WEEK: You like to balance your personal

universe, and in doing so, you help bring harmony into

the lives of the rest of us.

After 65 Years, Aces Rustic Restaurant to Close in October

By CompassVermont.com

“On an unknown month and day in 1956, my father Ace

Ruel built and opened the Rustic. He operated it for 20 years

until March of 1976 when my brother Marcel Ruel purchased

and ran it for twelve years. On September 9, 33 years ago, I

purchased it. My the time has passed so quickly.”

So begins the social media post from Mark Ruel, son of

the founder of Aces Rustic Restaurant, Ace Ruel. It ends with

Mark Ruel’s announcement that the iconic symbol of food,

beer, and ermont hospitality in orthfield Falls would close

in early October.

The outpouring of love for “Asa’s,” as many locals pronounce

it, and for the “stic,” as known to Norwich cadets,

came from everywhere, all with the common theme of great

memories.

“If I wasn’t in Europe with the army right now, I’d come

back to talk, drink, eat one last Ramsey burger … and offer to

wash dishes for you again,” said a man named Matt.

“My -year-old aunt had her first legal drink at the rustic

when she turned 21. It’s been a pleasure taking her back every

week right up to the present time,” added a friend named Jon.

“So thankful for all the memories and friendships built

within those walls. The Stic, and your family will always be

remembered as one of my favorite homes,” posted Taylor.

But the hospitality and caring for the community went beyond

the beers, fries, and pizza. The Ruels were known for

finding a room in their Inn for someone who needed a bed,

giving a job to a cadet or local looking for work, and putting

Cheers to shame when it came to knowing everyone’s name.

post from ene reects that broad sentiment.

“I’ll never forget the kindness you showed me by letting

me stay at the Rustic for some months while getting life back

in order while you were renovating in 2002, nor the unforgettable

times on both sides of that bar. The joy you brought

to the college and community can never be replaced. Many

have tried and not succeeded. I pray that an opportunity comes

around soon for someone to take over this legacy.”

In his announcement, Ruel said he’d been trying to sell the

Rustic for a while, but that “for some reason, it seems hard

to sell.”

He noted that the COVID-19 pandemic played a part “to

some degree” but admitted it was the pressure of running the

Rustic every day for 33 years along with the need to tend to

his health that led him and his wife, Helen, to close the doors

this fall.

“I am reminded of a saying my uncle told me at my father’s

wake in 1995,” said Ruel.

“As I looked at my dear father’s body, my uncle turned

to me and said: ‘all good things come to an end, Mark.’ So,

with that in mind, it is also time for the Rustic to come to an

end. On October 8, the Rustic will close for an undetermined

amount of time.

“Please accept our, myself, and my wife Helen’s deepest

gratitude for so many years of patronage. You know it’s an

interesting thought that so many of our customers were coming

as children, and now as adults, and some of their children

as adults. It’s a very sobering thought,” Ruel said near the end

of his post.

ne final eample of the hundreds of comments from a man

named Dusty seemed like a good lesson for every business

owner.

“From the day I graduated I have compared every bar I’ve

been in to The Rustic. You set the standard and created a place

for many, many great memories.

Best of luck in your future endeavors, Mark! You deserve a

break, and I hope you feel our sincere gratitude and appreciation.

that sells false hope. Beware

of unsubstantiated claims for

health products and services.

There are no “Quick Cures”

— no matter what the ad is

on promises of a “money back

guarantee!” Watch out for

key words such as “exclusive

secret,”amazing results,” or

“scientifi c breakthrough.” For

more information on health related

products or services, call

PET OF THE WEEK

These gorgeous loves need a quiet home, with time to adjust to

their new surroundings. They've been through a lot, and are

understandably cautious about change. Their owner passed away

from COVID, and their next home had a dog, which terrified them,

so they hid in one room in the house. They are a bonded pair, and

need to be adopted together. They need a human who

understands their passion for food, and is willing to help them

continue their journey to a healthy weight. This means controlled

amounts of wet food only.

Once they get comfortable, they love attention. Bella especially

loves her one-on-one time, and though Sasha looks continuously

surprised and a little confused, she also craves loves and attention.

All adoptions are done by a phone

appointment only (no one is allowed

in the building). Contact an adoption

counselor to set up an appointment

at 802-476-3811 or emailing

info@centralvermonthumane.org
