Even in Vermont, You Still Need a Disaster Kit and Go-Bag,

Here’s What Should Be In It

By CompassVermont.com

Thankfully, the Green Mountain State is spared many of

the natural disasters that other parts of the country have to

contend with, wildfires being at the top of the list, but bad

things still happen, and even Vermonters need to be prepared.

The July flooding in Southern Vermont and the more extreme

weather during all seasons are reminders of how quickly

tragic circumstances can develop. Then there are rural

house fires, where too often, a hard-working volunteer fire

department can’t get to a home before it is destroyed.

The bottom line is that every Vermont household needs a

disaster kit and a go-bag packed and ready at all times. In the

article below, Brett Robertson provides the essential information

for assembling both kits regardless of where you live,

so feel free to share it with the people you love across the

country.

What goes into a disaster kit and go-bag Here’s a checklist

for everything from hurricanes to wildfires and other storms.

When disasters hit, they can mean days to weeks without

power, and sometimes they allow just enough time to grab

a bag of supplies and go. Now is the time to prepare, well

before the disaster is on your doorstep.

I study ways to improve disaster communications. Here’s

what you need to think about.

Know your area’s disaster risk

While some hazards, like windstorms, happen in every

region, certain disasters are more common in specific geographic

areas. It’s important to know your risks.

The American Red Cross has a tool for determining common

disasters in your area, like hurricanes along the ulf and

Atlantic Coasts from June through November, and wildfire

season in the west, that seems to last all year now but worsens

as winds pick up in late summer and fall. Each hazard

requires different preparation steps.

Figuring out the specific threats to your own home requires

more work. Homeowners are often unaware of just how susceptible

their property may be to flooding.

To figure out your basic risk, start with Federal Emergency

Management Agency flood maps, but be aware that new construction

can change how water flows and that flood risks are

rising as the planet warms, particularly along the coasts but

also from more extreme downpours. State and local emergency

management departments’ websites may also have tools

for reviewing localized hazard resources.

How to make an emergency supply kit

When a disaster strikes, you may have to get by without

power, safe running water or help for several days. An important

safety measure is to have emergency supplies on hand

and in a safe place where you can easily get to them.

A disaster supply kit contains basic items that your household

may need. Ready.gov, the .S. government’s disaster

preparedness website, suggests packing the following items:

Water: one gallon per person per day for several

days.

Food: at least a three-day supply of non-perishable

food, such as canned meats and fruits.

A battery-powered or hand-crank radio.

A flashlight.

A first-aid kit.

Plastic sheeting and duct tape that can help provide

protection.

Also: extra batteries, a whistle, dust masks, moist

towelettes, basic personal hygiene items, blankets,

extra clothing, garbage bags, a wrench or pliers, a

manual can opener, local maps and a cell phone

with chargers.

Some important additions

In addition to the items suggested by Ready.gov,

there are other considerations that are useful when creating a

supply kit.

For example, gather prescription medications and have an

up-to-date list of the medications everyone in the household

uses. This can be especially important for older adults and people

on a life-sustaining medical treatment. With the pandemic

ongoing, include extra face masks you might spend time in a

public disaster shelter.

Pet owners may also want to consider creating a separate

disaster supply kit for their animals. These supplies include

veterinary records, pet food and

a can opener, food and water

bowls and medications.

Battery packs and portable

SB power chargers are useful

additions for a disaster supply

kit when the power goes out.

When Hurricane Harvey flooded

in Houston in 2017, people

used their smartphones to post

pleas for help on social media.

Phone batteries can run down

quickly, though, so be prepared.

And make sure the portable

charger is charged and ready to

go

Ẇarnings and news reports

don’t always reflect the risks

at the edges of a storm or other

threats, so be prepared even if

you don’t appear to be in the

center of the forecast storm

track or expected direction of

the wildfire.

Grab and go

Several types of disasters

may require evacuating your

home, and you may only have a

few minutes to prepare. Having

emergency supplies ready to go

is important if you need to leave

right away.

These bags are different from

household disaster supply kits

because you might need to carry

the bag on foot.

Typically, you would include

food and water, a small batterypowered

or hand-crank radio, a

flashlight, extra batteries, a small

first-aid kit, copies of crucial

documents, local maps and a phone charger and battery pack.

Communication plans matter

Before a disaster forces you to move fast, make a plan for

where you could go. Find destinations in several different directions

in case one of the routes is blocked, and make sure everyone

in your household and your emergency contacts know

the plan.

Households should have conversations about disasters,

including discussing their evacuation plan, who to contact,

Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility Announces 2021 Awardees

Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR) is

pleased to honor three outstanding individuals and businesses

who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in

socially responsible business: Cindy Turcot of Gardener’s

Supply Company with the 2021 Terry Ehrich Award for

Lifetime Achievement, HELM Construction Solutions with

the VBSR Innovation and Inspiration Award, and Ashley

Reynolds of Elmore Mountain Therapeutics with the VBSR

Young Changemaker Award. Awardees were selected for

their achievements in championing new ideas and initiatives,

leading by example, and developing successful socially

responsible business models. Awards were given during the

20th Annual VBSR Awards Ceremony on October 12th at

Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes.

“For more than 30 years, VBSR has been transforming

what business looks like, how it works, and who benefits.

Our members are changemakers and innovators, with impact

reaching far beyond the marketplace to advance leadingedge

policy and practices, bolster communities, shape the

Vermont brand, and fuel the social responsibility movement,”

said VBSR’s Executive Director, Roxanne Vought.

“The Annual Awards Ceremony is a moment to celebrate the

inspiring business leaders among us who exemplify VBSR’s

vision of a just, thriving, and transformative economy that

works for all people and the planet.”

The Terry Ehrich Award for Lifetime Achievement honors

an outstanding individual in honor of Terry Ehrich, late

owner of Hemmings Motor News and a founding member of

VBSR’s Board of Directors. The award is given annually to

a person exemplifying Terry’s commitment to community,

the environment, progressive public policy, and the workplace.

Previous Terry Ehrich Awardees include Jen Kimmich

of The Alchemist, Ted Castle of Rhino Foods, and Ben

Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s.

Cindy Turcot is the CEO and President of Gardener’s

Supply Company. Cindy has been with Gardener’s since its

inception in 1983, starting in data entry and progressing

through many roles including Chief Operating Officer and

Chief Financial Officer. She has played a key role in creating

the company’s unique and innovative management style that

reinforces the emphasis on a triple bottom line – people,

planet, and profit.

“I am so honored to have been chosen for this award, with

so many visionary leaders who have won this award over the

years. I appreciate the recognition of my passion and advocacy

for employee ownership and wealth equality, on the

local and national fronts,” said Cindy Turcot. “I am grateful

to lead Gardener’s Supply as we strive to be a socially

responsible company through gardening, sustainability, and

innovative business practices.”

Vermont Businesses for

Social Responsibility

Gardener’s Supply is 100% employee owned through an

ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Cindy was a key

player in transitioning the company from founder-owned to an

ESOP, and is a driving force for a strong employee ownership

culture. Nationally, she is well known for her commitment to

employee ownership, empowerment, and wealth equality. She

is a sought-after speaker on ownership culture, corporate governance,

and open book and participatory management practices.

HELM Construction Solutions is an innovative Vermontbased

firm providing business consulting, coaching, estimating,

project management, and specialized training to highperformance

design and build companies across the U.S. and

Canada. HELM’s purpose is to “revolutionize the construction

industry, centering the triple bottom line principles of planet,

people, and prosperity to become a catalyst for climate justice.”

HELM is a majority woman, trans, and non-binary

owned and operated company. They work to disrupt toxic

masculinity and advocate for the participation of women and

LGBTQIA people in the trades.

The VBSR Innovation and Inspiration Award is given to a

Vermont business who has recently accomplished an innovative

and/or inspirational achievement with not only economic

impact but social or environmental impact.

“HELM Construction Solutions is honored to be the recipient

of VBSR’s 2021 Innovation & Inspiration Award. As a

small business that focuses on the planet, people, and prosperity

within the construction industry, we are proud to be active

in an organization with so many shared values,” said Mel

Braiser, Strategic Director of HELM Construction Solutions.

“The education and advocacy that VBSR advances on behalf

of the member businesses is critical. We are particularly

moved by their leadership around centering Justice, Equity,

Diversity, and Inclusion in the effort to build more impactful

and resilient Vermont-based businesses.”

Ashley Reynolds, President and Co-Founder of Elmore

Mountain Therapeutics and her husband Colin established

their business in May of 2017 after Ashley’s personal struggle

with postpartum anxiety. Finding relief through the use of

CBD, Ashley saw a need for cannabis advocation to all.

Reynolds believes the strong household decision makers of

the world stand to benefit the most from the use of cannabis

and has worked tirelessly empowering women to make smart,

safe decisions around cannabis use. A Tedtalk presenter,

“Cannabis – A Future Without Stigma,” she has recently been

appointed by Speaker of the House Jill Krowinski to the

Vermont Cannabis Control Advisory Committee.

The VBSR Young Changemaker Award recognizes an individual

under age 40 who has led the formation of a socially

responsible enterprise that has been in operation three or more

years. The award seeks to recognize both entrepreneurs and

those that have led change within Vermont companies and

organizations.

“With the legalization of an adult-use cannabis market,

Vermont is on the verge of a significant agricultural revolution

and economic opportunity. In this moment lies the rare potential

to incorporate socially responsible business practices into

an industry from its inception,” said Ashley Reynolds.

“Elmore Mountain Therapeutics is immensely grateful for

VBSR’s recognition of our mission to support well-being,

economic development, social justice and environmental sustainability.

This acceptance and support will be critical in

ensuring Vermont’s cannabis future is just, green, and equitable.”

VBSR’s 20th Annual Awards Ceremony was held on

Tuesday, October 12th at Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes.

This year’s event took place outdoors, on the shore of Lake

Champlain at sunset. Registration and more details may be

found at: https://vbsr.org/event/20th-annual-vbsr-awards-ceremony/.

& Jerry’s, King Arthur Baking, Gallagher, Flynn & Company,

LLP, National Life Group, Vermont Employee Ownership

Center, Cabot Creamery, Vermont Awards & Engraving, KSV,

Gifford Gifted CuddleCot through

Scarlet’s Mission

Katie Irwin and Jim

McGonigal don’t want any

parent to go through what

they did more than six years

ago. Their daughter Scarlet

Suzy McGonigal was stillborn

and the Woodbridge, CT

couple didn’t have the proper

amount of time to spend with

her and process their grief.

Following that experience,

ior i n

Ellen Fox

Katie and Jim created

Scarlet’s Mission, donating

CuddleCots to various hospitals,

including Gifford Medical Center.

“Gifford is very sweet,” Irwin said. “You can feel the empathy

here, which is how it should be.”

A warm room can deteriorate a stillborn baby’s condition

quickly. The CuddleCot system cools the baby allowing families

to spend more time with their baby, where every minute

counts.

“We are absolutely honored and very appreciative,” Gifford

Director of Women’s Health, Bonnie Hervieux-Woodbury said.

“This will be a huge gift to families, parents, and grandparents.

We hope the opportunity to use the CuddleCot is few and far

between, but in those instances, we will put it to good use.”

Fundraising for Scarlet’s Mission is mostly done through

social media. The first CuddleCot was donated about three

years ago. Seven CuddleCots have been presented since, with

six of them going to Vermont hospitals.

“Vermont has very compassionate health care,” Irwin said.

“To be able to help the parents and to keep my daughter’s

spirit and name alive is extremely important. I’m very grateful

to Gifford for accepting this.”

“Our goal is to support families in our birthing center and

this is another way to do that,” Hervieux-Woodbury said. “We

don’t want to put time frames on when it’s okay for parents to

say goodbye.”

For more information on Scarlet’s Mission: https://www.

facebook.com/scarletsmission.

Reminder during COVID-19: All Gifford clinics are open.

New One Dollar Coin Features

Vermont Snowboarder

By CompassVermont.com

The United States Mint

(Mint) has officially announced

the 2022 American

Innovation 1 Coin

Program designs, and

Vermont’s will be a

snowboarder.

This multi-year

series that started in

2018 honors innova-

tion and innovators by

issuing 1 coins for each

of the 50 states, the District

of Columbia, and the five

.S. territories.

The Mint works with each state’s

governor’s office and subject matter experts

to determine design concepts.

“I am proud to have snowboarding representing

Vermont in the Innovation 1 program,”

said Vermont overnor Phil Scott.

“In many ways, Vermont is the birthplace

of modern snowboarding, and this coin represents

Vermont’s contributions to the sport,

from physical innovations in boards and bindings

to the creativity and athleticism showcased

by Vermontersand others who train in

the reen Mountainsin competition

on the world stage.”

The Mint also released the

following description of the

coin.

American Innovation

Vermont

Designer: Justin Kunz,

Artistic Infusion Program

Sculptor: Craig Camp-

bell, Medallic Artist.

“The Vermont 1 Coin

features a young female

snowboarder in the air performing

a trick called a “melon grab,”

set against a mountainous winter line inspired by the landscape of Vermont.

sky-

The aim of the design is to capture a sense

of the energy and exuberance of snowboarding

through movement implied by diagonal

lines and curved shapes. Inscriptions include

“NITED STATES OF AMERICA” and

“VERMONT.”

Preservation Trust of Vermont Awarded

Funding for 2022 Bruhn Grants

The Preservation Trust of Vermont has

been awarded 659,000 from the Paul Bruhn

Historic Revitalization rant Program grant,

administered by the National Park Service.

These grants mark the third year of funding

for the program named in honor of the late

Paul Bruhn, president of the Preservation

Trust of Vermont for nearly 40 years. Subgrants

awarded by the Preservation Trust will

support preservation projects in rural Vermont.

As Vice Chairman of the Senate Appropriations

Committee, Senator Patrick Leahy

created and named the 7.5 million annual

program to support rural communities working

to revitalize historic properties in their

communities of national, state and local significance

in order to restore, protect and foster

economic development in rural villages and

downtown areas.

Of the award to the Preservation Trust of

Vermont, Senator Leahy said: “As I know

from my long friendship and partnership with

Paul Bruhn, Vermont’s historic structures are

crucial to preserving the identity of our local

communities and to energizing our economy.

This award will allow the Preservation Trust

to help more Vermont communities activate

these spaces, keeping their downtowns and

village centers vibrant places where Vermonters

can meet their neighbors.”

“The Preservation Trust of Vermont is

deeply honored to be entrusted with this

funding from the National Parks Service,”

said Ben Doyle, President of the Preservation

Trust. “We are excited to fund projects

around Vermont that will revitalize communities,

help save the buildings Vermonters love,

and create new economic activity. This award

is a testament to the hard work of community

leaders engaged in preservation projects and

to Senator Leahy’s leadership that has made

the program possible.”

Congress appropriates funding for the program

through the Historic Preservation Fund

(HPF). The HPF uses revenue from federal oil

leases on the Outer Continental Shelf, providing

assistance for a broad range of preservation

projects without expending tax dollars.

The program is administered by the National

Park Service, Department of the Interior.

Castleton University, Northern Vermont

University, and Vermont Technical College to

Unify as Vermont State University

The Board of Trustees of the Vermont

State Colleges System (VSCS) approved the

name Vermont State niversity for the one

new university unifying Castleton niversity,

Northern Vermont niversity, and Vermont

Technical College.

“The establishment of the nameVermont

State niversityis a pivotal point

in the creation of our new and innovative

university,” stated Board of Trustees Chair

Lynn Dickinson. “Vermont State niversity

capitalizes on the nationally and internationally

known Vermont brand and highlights our

connection to the state as a public higher education

institution. In establishing the identity

of the new institution, this is the first step. We

are looking forward to the continued work

over the next several months on the additional

critical elements of the brand identity

of Vermont State niversity: the mission, vision,

brand identity, and academic structure.”

She continued, “the VSCS Board of Trustees

is committed to fully unifying Castleton

niversity, Northern Vermont niversity,

and Vermont Technical College. With the

guidance, support, and financial investment

of the state, the Board of Trustees plans to

accomplish a unification that expands opportunities

for learners throughout the state,

restructures the system for financial success,

and retains our current campus locations and

thus our commitment to serving Vermont’s

rural communities.”

Chancellor Sophie datny noted, “the

establishment of Vermont State niversity

is an opportunity to fully unify our three

residential institutions. It is essential that

we do so in a strategic and thoughtful way.

Extensive research, including feedback from

over 3,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni,

administrators, and community partners, was

done to inform the name recommendation.

This research was crucial to establishing the

unifying name and will continue to be used

in the coming months as we do further work

on the mission, vision, and brand identity of

Vermont State niversity.”

“One key takeaway from the research done

is the importance of innovation and technology

with a focus on the future,” she added.

“Another is how embedded Vermont is in

our collective identity through our workforce

partners, applied learning opportunities, our

local communities and alumni, and connection

to the state. The importance of the word

niversity’ to convey the variety, strength,

quality, and prestige of the education provided

was another key indicator. Vermont State

niversity gives us incredible flexibility in

bringing the brand identity of the new university

to life. In the coming months, we will

be continuing the exciting work of establishing

a unified brand identity for Vermont State

niversity.”

Vermont State niversity will launch July

1, 2023 with recruitment for the first class to

begin in fall 2022. Once the new university

is established, the VSCS will consist of Vermont

State niversity and Community College

of Vermont.

The Vermont State Colleges System, with

the guidance and direction of the state, began

working on system transformation and the

unification of the three residential colleges

last year. In Act 74 of the 2021 legislative

session, the state mandated system transformation

and integration while also committing

to stronger funding of the system, the

member institutions, and Vermont students.

Senator Leahy said of the project, “I am

delighted, though not surprised, that the expansion

of Hubbard Park was highly ranked

for the national Community Forest and Open

Space 2021 grants. I played in Hubbard Park

as a boy growing up in Montpelier, and this

expansion will ensure that it will be even bigger

and better for generations to come. This

project conserves open space and expands this

much-loved park in the heart of our state capital.

It is exactly the type of project that I had in

mind when I helped create this grant program

in the Farm Bill, and why I support its annual

funding as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations

Committee.”

Two events are scheduled (on Zoom and inperson)

for members of the public and learn

more, see a short slide-show and ask questions

about the expansion project, funds already

raised, and remaining gap and timeline.

Wednesday, October 13 at 5:30 is an inperson,

masked, distanced, limited-capacity

event at Montpelier Senior Activity Center, 58

Barre Street, Montpelier. Register for either

by emailing Janna Clar at jclar@montpeliervt.org

or calling 802-262-6284.

This project is part of a larger effort to ensure

more community members have access

to the health and wellness benefits parks and

trails provide, and to work towards making

Montpelier a destination for outdoor recreation.

The Montpelier Parks Commission,

along with partners such as the Trust for Public

land, are working toward a goal for all residents

to be able to access greenspace within a

10-minute walk from home.

“Hubbard Park is a Vermont treasure, allowing

visitors to stroll through the thickly

forested hills just behind the Golden Dome,”

said Rep. Welch. “I have appreciated the quiet

beauty of Hubbard Park since my days in the

State House. This grant will allow Montpelier

to add additional acres of forest, streams and

wetlands to Hubbard Park, increasing its size

by almost 50 percent, and adding important

natural resources to this well managed community

forest in the heart of the Vermont

capital.”

Passing the Torch to Continue

a Beloved Community

Tradition: Free Community

Thanksgiving Dinner

After 48 years at the helm, WCYSB is stepping out of our

role of organizing our area’s annual Free Community Thanksgiving

Dinner. WCYSB has officially passed the torch to National

Life roup and Sodexo who will continue this beloved

community event.

What started out as a small community dinner grew dramatically

year after year, doubling in size in just the last ten

years to serve over 800 meals at the sit-down buffet and via

deliveries to the homebound. Eventually the dinner outgrew

our agency’s capacity. After much soul searching, we realized

that the best way to keep the tradition alive was to find other

entities in the community to take this on. Then last year with

the disruptions of the COVID pandemic we suddenly had to

come up with a different model and National Life and Sodexo

generously took the lead.

We are enormously grateful to National Life roup and Sodexo

for taking this on last year and going forward. We know

this event is in capable hands, with organizations that are as

caring and committed to the community as we are.

Thank you to our community!

You helped to make this dinner possible and create the magic

that it generated every year. Our staff truly put their hearts

and souls into this event for 48 years, but they could never

have done it alone. We are forever grateful to our community

to you and all the donors, turkey roasters, pie bakers, potato

peelers, to the volunteers who served the meals and delivered

the meals. To the volunteers who came early on Thanksgiving

Day to set up, and who stayed late to clean up, and those who

helped out in so many other ways. And thanks to the Bethany

Church and the nitarian Church in Montpelier for the use of

their space year after year.

Bill Preis of Middlesex who volunteered at the Thanksgiving

dinner for over 20 years says, “This meal helped the community

to grow and get to know each other. This has been an

uplifting event to be involved with.”

By the numbers a look at what it took to feed 800 people

In 2019 prior to the pandemic:

814 meals served (416 at the sit-down dinner at Bethany

Church and 398 meals delivered to people’s homes).

60 turkeys

• 115 pies

300 lbs of squash

200 lbs of potatoes

61 dozen fresh rolls

164 volunteers helped out

19 volunteer drivers delivered meals along 20 different delivery

routes.

This year’s dinner

In the coming weeks National Life and Sodexo will share

details about this year’s dinner which again, due to the COVID

pandemic, will be offered for pick-up and delivery only.

Fall Walks Open to the Community! Preparing for Winter

Walk

Saturday, October 16, 10:00am (rain date, October 17) |

Free | For all ages

Meet at the New Shelter in Hubbard Park, Montpelier for

this easy to moderate walk. Join Naturalist Gail Johnson for a

walk exploring how trees and animals get ready for winter.

Finding leaves that have changed color, we’ll learn why they

change color, and how deciduous leaves transfer food they

make to the bottom of the trunk before they fall. We’ll find

animals and relate them to the ways animals prepare for winter:

either migration, physical change, storage of food, or

locating and readying a winter home. Gail has beautiful photographs

and physical props to illustrate the topic. Just show

up and share!

Waterbury Area Senior Center Event

Queen Esther #7, Order of the Eastern Star, Waterbury is

working on helping the Waterbury Area by organizing a couple

of Community Service Projects. We have plans for doing

a food drive in early November to help the three local food

shelves, date to be announced in near future, and we have set

up an event for the Waterbury Area Senior Center.

Like many businesses and most non-profits today, it is difficult

to make ends meet with the costs of goods and so many

vacancies in today’s workforce; even volunteers are scarce.

Mark your calendars for the fall sale on Saturday, October

23rd from 9 - 3 at the Center, 14 Stowe Street in Waterbury.

Admission is free. We have organized crafters and vendors

who will buy space and sell products at the event. My group

of volunteers are baking pies, breads, cookies (including

Gale’s) and baked beans to sell at this event. We have a hostess

for Pampered Chef, Tupperware and even a gal who sells

the fun Color Street nails. We have a potter who offers honey

and beeswax items, a photographer, a couple of jewelry

designers, a family who sells fun wreaths and much more.

There is a raffle for a gift packet that you would love to win

and we’ll have a 50/50 raffle. There will be something for

everyone. Come out and help the Eastern Star in an effort to

support our Seniors in the Waterbury area. For more information,

State of Vermont Strengthens School Testing Program;

Makes Covid-19 Response Testing Available to All VT Schools

The State of Vermont distributed resources and information

to all Vermont public and independent schools to enable them

to establish COVID-19 response testing in every school

across Vermont. The State is bolstering existing testing tools

with rapid testing to help keep more kids in school.

The program, a joint effort of the Agency of Education,

Department of Health and a range of other state government

and public health partners, will provide schools with a robust

tool set to respond to cases in their learning community. These

resources are provided free of charge to Vermont schools.

“We all know how important it is to keep kids in school –

doing so is a public health imperative,” said Governor Scott.

“But what we have seen so far is that many students have had

to quarantine after a possible exposure and then don’t ever

become a case. This is valuable classroom time that is lost for

the student, and challenging for parents and schools to manage.

By adding these additional tools to the toolbox, we can

minimize disruptions, more quickly identify cases, and above

all, keep our kids in school, so they can get the education and

opportunities for social interaction they deserve.”

Using a combination of PCR and rapid antigen tests,

response testing allows schools to greatly reduce the time

students might otherwise have to spend out of the classroom

due to cases at their school. Students who are close contacts

of a classmate or teacher who tests positive for COVID-19

will be able to test out of quarantine more easily and continue

attending school while in quarantine as long as they have no

symptoms.

“Response testing is a critical tool for Vermont schools as

they work to keep students learning, and a key part of our

efforts to support Vermont’s hard-working school staff and

educators,” said Secretary of Education Dan French. “Right

now, the most important thing we can do for students’ longterm

success is to keep them in the classroom as much as

possible. Together with the current surveillance testing program,

these new tools will help make sure that students are

present, learning and engaged in the other essential pursuits

that Vermont education provides.”

“When combined with surveillance testing, response testing

provides a full range of tools to Vermont schools, allowing

them to quickly respond to cases, and keep students at school,

There’s No Way to Do It Wrong!

For decades, Montpelier’s Gary Miller wrote English Language

Arts curriculum for some of the largest (and smallest)

publishers in the world. But when it came to teaching writing,

he also had some ideas of his own. Those ideas have found

their way into Miller’s new book There’s No Way to Do It

Wrong! How to Get Young Learners to Take Risks, Tell Stories,

Share Opinions, and Fall in Love with Writing, now available

at 7minutewriter.com.

Coming in at just under 60 pages, this slender how-to targets

teachers and home schoolers who want their grade 5-8 students

to overcome their fear, write with confidence, and love

the writing process. The book, says Miller, is designed to convince

young learners that writing can be fun — and that they

all can be successful writers and authors.

“We’ve become so focused on standards and testing. We forget

that kids learn to love writing by having fun,” Miller says.

“When we focus instead on brief, low-risk writing prompts

and what students are doing right, we can turn reluctant writers

into enthusiastic, motivated ones.”

There’s No Way to Do It Wrong! uses 7-minute writing sessions

and positive feedback as a springboard to get the ink

flowing and build confidence. The process builds skills for all

types of writing, from descriptive and persuasive writing to

narrative and expository. And the book also includes ideas for

publishing student work and 101 bonus prompts designed to

spark young writers’ creativity.

engaged and learning,” said Agency of Human Services

Secretary, Mike Smith.

The COVID-19 response testing program consists of three

complementary testing tools, each used for different scenarios,

giving schools flexibility to respond directly to specific

cases in their learning community:

• Test to Stay – allows unvaccinated students who are close

contacts of a positive COVID-19 case to take a daily antigen

test at the beginning of the school day, rather than remaining

at home. Students who test negative go to class and in-school

extracurricular activities as normal, as long as they have no

symptoms. Students test until seven days have passed since

they were last exposed to the case. This program is modeled

after successful programs in Massachusetts and Utah and has

been supported by Vermont’s pediatric community and infectious

disease experts at the University of Vermont.

• PCR Response Testing – allows schools to conduct a wide

range of PCR testing in response to case(s) in their learning

community. This includes testing unvaccinated close contacts

out of quarantine, testing vaccinated close contacts three to

five days after exposure, and testing symptomatic students

who test negative with an antigen test. Schools administer the

testing on site.

• Take Home PCR Testing – allows schools to distribute kits

to students, staff and family members who need a test.

Families can follow simple instructions to register the kit

using a smartphone or web browser, collect the sample, and

either send back to the lab themselves with a pre-paid shipping

label, or return to the school for shipping. These kits are

intended for students quarantining at home, family members

of COVID-19 positive students, or anyone in the learning

community who needs a test.

Families will hear directly from their school about testing

programs in their community. Schools will receive additional

resources and information.

Information can be found on the Agency of Education’s

COVID-19 Testing Family Resources webpage and COVID-

19 Response Testing At-A-Glance.

The Montpelier Public Arts Commission is pleased to announce

the release of a new micro-grant program available

to Vermont-based artists for up to $1500 for permanent or

temporary art installations throughout the City of Montpelier.

This RFP is open for an indefinite period and artists may submit

at anytime during the year. The commission will review

and award grants twice yearly, with deadlines of October 31

and March 30.

The goal of these projects is to jump start the city’s inventory

of art and enhance community vitality, particularly in light

of the struggles we have all faced in the past year. The commission

will review submissions and make selections based

on the quality of art and the goal of filling the city with as

much quality art as possible within its limited budget. As a

result, the total number of awards and the amount of awards

will be determined during the review process.

For more information about the projects and to review the

Request for Proposals, please visit the MPAC webpage at

Bernard P. Roy

BARRE Bernard P. Roy, 95,

passed away peacefully on

October 2, 2021 at his home, with his

loving family by his side. Bernie was

born on September 17, 1926 in Washington,

VT, where he grew up and went to

school. At age 17, he signed up to serve

his country during WWII. He served to

the end of the war and returned home to

graduate from Spaulding High School,

graduating in 1946. Soon after school, he married his beloved

Lucille “Tookie” Benoit, started working at People’s National

Bank in Barre, which changed to First Vermont Bank and at

his retirement was Key Bank of Barre. He was in banking for

42 years. In the early years of his marriage, he also worked

part time in the Benoit family store in town. Bernie and Tookie

lived in Graniteville their entire married lives. They had

nine children and after 45 loving years of marriage, Bernie lost

his beloved wife to cancer.

Bernie was a quiet, kind and gentle soul that would help

anybody at any time. When working at the bank, he was often

sought out as the banker that one could speak to in their

native, French-Canadian tongue. He would say very little as

he would contemplate and listen, and often puff on his pipe.

But helped whenever he could. He was an avid hunter and

member of the Benoit deer camp, proud member of Red Sox

Nation, previous co-owner of the Roy Family camp on Woodbury

Lake, bowler, and a frugal Mr. Fix-it.

Through the years of raising his many children, he was the

Trustee of St. Sylvester’s Cemetery Association (for 54 years).

Bernie served on the Barre Town School Board and was one of

board members that was instrumental in selecting the site for

the Barre Town Elementary School.

In 1997 Bernie met his second partner in life, Joan (McCallum)

Hart and in that union, gained additional children and

grandchildren. He loved them all. Many times after Sunday

mass, you could stop at their house to find him sitting at the

head of the breakfast table, with the Hart family all around

him chatting. He would be grinning at a story being told,

clearly a happy man. The Hart family was the icing on the

cake for him, and he was happiest when surrounded by family.

Bernie leaves behind his partner of 25 years, Joan Hart

of Barre. He had nine children, Cindy Collins, Karen Roy,

Stephen Roy all of Barre; James Roy (wife Becca) of Wolcott;

Kathy Morse (Frank, deceased) of Barre; John Roy of

Richmond; Ann Miller (husband Merle) of Barre; and Ronald

Roy (wife Heather) of Claremont, NH; Alexander Hart (wife

Rhonda); Rodney Hart (wife Kim) both of Williamstown;

Rhonda Couillard (husband Chuck); and Karen Chouinard

(husband Marcel) both of Barre. In addition, 23 grandchildren

and nineteen great-grandchildren. Bernie leaves behind many

nieces and nephews. Son Timothy Charles predeceased him

in 1966.

Bernie was the sixth of 14 children and leaves behind three

siblings Anita Seguin (husband Charles) of S. Burlington;

Donald Roy (wife Ann) of Riverview, FL; and Diane Elkins

(husband Michael) of Clermont, FL. He is predeceased by his

parents, Oram and Lydia Roy; siblings Dolore Roy, Raymond

Roy, Victor Roy, Marielore Foreman, Edward Roy, Rolland

Roy, Armand Roy, Robert Roy, Normand Roy and Margaret

Carney. Bernie would proudly display his license plate representing

“9 brothers served” their country.

A Catholic funeral was held on October 6, 2021, 10:00 at

St. Monica Church in Barre, VT. In Lieu of flowers, donations

can be made to Central VT Home Health and Hospice, 600

ranger Road, Barre VT. 05641. Home Health and Hospice

truly are angels and were there for him every step of the way.

Very special thanks to Michelle Blake as well as the Hospice

What Do Men In Prison For Violent Crimes Have In Common?

Research tells us that a majority of men in prison were

abused growing up.

As a state, Vermont is dedicated to the health and safety of

its most vulnerable citizens, in particular its children. Their

health, education, and overall wellbeing are paramount to the

future success of our state.

Given this, we must focus energy and resources on the

prevention of child abuse and in particular, sexual abuse. As

we raise children free from child sexual abuse, they will grow

up unlikely to commit violent sex crimes as adults, and that is

a goal worth striving for.

Over the past 25 years, we have learned that children cannot

protect themselves from those who would sexually abuse

them. They cannot say “no” to older youth, babysitters, teachers,

parents, scout leaders, clergy, etc. They are not equal to

those who care for them; they are children, not little adults.

By definition, they are dependent on those who are caring for

them. These relationships with people older than themselves

are necessary for children, in their homes, schools, and communities.

It is up to adults to learn how to spot grooming behavior, to

interrupt it, and protect our children. The purpose of grooming

is to build trust with family members, program leaders,

and children, to gain access to them with a plan to sexually

abuse them. Those who sexually offend children come from

President Approves Major Disaster Declaration for Vermont

Governor Phil Scott issued the following statement regarding

the Biden Administration’s plan to invest billions to

expand rapid at-home COVID-19 tests for Americans:

“Increasing access to rapid at-home testing will be important

as we continue moving forward and I applaud the

President’s focus on this important tool.

“The introduction of highly effective vaccines, boosters

and early treatment options has significantly lowered the risk

for everyone, but especially the older, medically vulnerable

population most at-risk. As a result, we are able to return to

more normal activities and begin to address the consequences

of the most aggressive COVID-19 mitigation measures.

These consequences like increasing hospitalization for significant

all walks of life and look just like everyone else. Adults can

spot grooming when small boundaries are crossed and inhibitions

are lowered with children, like telling adult-content

stories or jokes, or not respecting children’s boundaries about

touch. Interrupting this process can save a child from harm.

As adults, we can set boundaries for expectations of other

adults’ behavior with children.

All of our children deserve to have bright futures and safe,

carefree childhoods!

needs, rising substance use, overdoses and domestic violence,

and the economic insecurity of many families and employers.

The science tells us that as we move forward, COVID-19 will

continue to circulate like other viruses. As America navigates

that transition from pandemic to endemic, expanding access

to rapid testing will change the game, giving us another, far

faster and more convenient tool we can use at home to help

the country moving forward.

“Vermont and our neighbors in New England have proven

the power of vaccines and the importance of robust testing. I

look forward to learning more about the federal initiatives and

way forward.”


Attorney General Donovan Files Consumer Protection

Suit Against Fossil Fuel Companies

Vermont Attorney eneral T.J. Donovan announced that his

office has filed a major consumer protection lawsuit against

fossil fuel companies for deceptive and unfair practices. The

lawsuit alleges past and ongoing violations of Vermont’s Consumer

Protection Act for concealing crucial information and

disseminating misleading statements and advertising about

fossil fuels and climate change. The lawsuit names as defendants

Exxon Mobil Corporation, Shell Oil Company, Sunoco

LP, CITO Petroleum Corporation, and related companies.

“For years, these companies have misled the public about

the real and significant impacts of fossil fuels on our environment

and public health,” said Attorney eneral Donovan.

“Vermont consumers were given false and misleading

information about the dramatic effects of these products on

the climate. Vermonters have a right to accurate information

in order to make informed decisions about the products they

purchase.”

The lawsuit, filed in the Vermont Superior Court, Chittenden

Civil Division, seeks to prevent the fossil fuel corporations

from engaging in further unfair or deceptive acts and

practices. The lawsuit also seeks to force these corporations

Attorney General Donovan Co-Leads Bipartisan Coalition In

Supporting Hearings on Social Media Use by Kids

• • •

• • •

to take appropriate steps to rectify their prior and ongoing

actions, including future disclosures about the role of fossil

fuels in climate change at every point of sale in Vermont. Further,

the lawsuit seeks disgorgement by the corporations of all

funds acquired as a result of unlawful acts or practices, and

statutory civil penalties under the Vermont Consumer Protection

Act.

The Attorney eneral’s complaint alleges a long history

of deceptive and unfair acts and practices by the fossil fuel

corporations. The lawsuit contends that the corporations knew

about the potential warming effects of greenhouse gas emissions

caused by fossil fuel since the 1960s and yet have continued

to promote their products while obfuscating and downplaying

climate dangers. Further, the lawsuit describes a more

recent “greenwashing” campaign by defendants to portray

themselves and their products as benefiting the environment

and helping to solve climate change, when in fact they continue

to remain major sources of the problem. Examples of

advertising and other statements by the defendants spanning

decades are included in the Attorney eneral’s complaint.

Attorney eneral T.J. Donovan is co-leading a bipartisan

coalition of 52 attorneys general expressing strong support for

the hearings being conducted by the .S. Senate Committee

addressing protection and safety of kids and teens using social

media.

Attorneys general, who have been monitoring with concern

the impacts of social media on youth, cite recent research from

Facebook’s own internal studies showing that social media is

inflicting harm. According to these internal studies, this harm

comes in the form of increased mental distress, bullying, suicide,

and other self-harm on a significant number of kids.

“I applaud the .S. Senate for holding these important hearings

on the negative and harmful impacts social media has on

kids,” said Attorney eneral Donovan. “As our letter states,

when our young people’s health becomes mere collateral

damage of greater profits of social media companies, it is time

for the government to intervene.’”

The letter, sent to the .S. Senate Committee on Commerce,

Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Consumer

Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security, recognizes

the hearings will uncover critical information about the

business practices that social media companies are using to

gain the attention of more young people on their platforms.

Attorneys general express in their letter that the current and

future well-being of our nation’s youth is at stake.

In May 2021, a bipartisan coalition of 44 attorneys general

wrote a letter to Facebook CEO Mark uckerberg urging

the company to abandon its plans to launch a version of

Instagram for children under the age of 13. That request was

ignored. Last week, in advance of the Congressional hearings,

Facebook announced their intent to “pause” the project. The

attorneys general believe the project should be abandoned altogether.

The attorneys general write in their letter that “More engagement

by the user equals more data to leverage for advertising,

which equals greater profit. This prompts social media

companies to design their algorithms and other features to

psychologically manipulate young users into a state of addiction

to their cell phone screens.”

Pfizer Booster Shots Now

Available to All Eligible Groups

Governor Phil Scott announced that many more Vermonters

can now schedule and receive their Pfizer vaccine booster

shots.

“We know vaccines are safe and effective, and these additional

doses add even more protection. So, I encourage anyone

who is eligible to register for your booster today,” said

Governor Scott. “At the same time, we continue to urge those

who have not yet gotten their first dose to get vaccinated. The

data shows we are now in a pandemic of the unvaccinated,

and vaccines are the best way to protect yourself, friends and

family, and to make sure we continue moving forward from

the pandemic.”

In Vermont, you are now eligible to get a booster shot of

Pfizer vaccine if you received your second dose of the Pfizer-

BioNTech vaccine six months ago or more, and

spread COVID because of where you work, or

• are age 18 or older and are Black, Indigenous or a person of

color (BIPOC), or are age 18 or older and live with someone

who is BIPOC.

As of Friday morning, more than 4,700 people have registered

through the state system for their third dose. People are

also able to get their shots at participating pharmacies and

through their health care provider.

Where and how to get your booster shot

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) Someone from your past

could arrive with welcome

news concerning your future.

Meanwhile, avoid taking

sides in a workplace confrontation

until you have more facts to go on.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A decision about a relationship

could have longer-lasting consequences than you might imagine,

so be sure of your facts before you act. A trusted friend can help.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A strained relationship could be

restored with more personal contact between the two of you.

Letting others act as your go-between only adds to the ongoing

estrangement.

CANCER ( June 21 to July 22) Fresh facts could mean taking a

new path toward a goal you’ve been hoping to reach. However,

be sure all your questions are answered before you undertake to

shift directions.

LEO ( July 23 to August 22) This is a good week for all you fine

Felines to turn your attention to some important considerations,

such as your health, your job situation and the status of important

relationships.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Avoid making a quick decision

about a matter that needs more study. Keep your mind open

for possibilities, even if they don’t seem plausible -- at least not

yet.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might welcome the

emphasis on openness in relationships that mark this period. But

it’s a good idea to avoid sharing personal secrets with people you

hardly know.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) There are still some

questions that need to be asked and answered before you can feel

confident enough to make a potentially life-changing decision.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Some lingering

effects from a now largely resolved workplace confrontation

could make things difficult for you. Act on this before it becomes

serious.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You feel you’re finally

in control of your own life after months of making compromises

and concessions you never felt comfortable with. Congratulations.

AQUARIUS ( January 20 to February 18) No sooner do you decide

to pass on one job offer than another suddenly turns up. This

one might not have everything you’re looking for, but it’s worth

checking out.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Congratulations. With Jupiter’s

strong influence dominating this week, don’t be surprised to

get some good news about a troubling financial matter.

BORN THIS WEEK: You are usually kind and loving. But you

can be highly critical of those who don’t measure up to your high

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


Consumer Resources to Help Locate

Available Health Care Providers

The Department of Financial Regulation

(DFR), Department of Vermont Health

Access, Office of the Health Care Advocate,

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, MVP

Health Care, and Cigna together encourage

Vermonters to take advantage of consumer

resources to help find alternative care if they

encounter extended wait times for medical

appointments.

“While the State of Vermont continues to

examine reports of extended wait times for

medical appointments, we want to bring

awareness to the consumer resources currently

available to help Vermonters struggling

to secure medical appointments,” said DFR

Commissioner Michael Pieciak.

Commercial health insurers and Vermont

Medicaid have resources available to assist

consumers with finding primary and specialty

care within a reasonable time frame, including

transportation to and from appointments,

and telemedicine services. Further, consumers

with commercial insurance may be able to

see out-of-network providers at in-network

rates if no in-network provider is available

and accessible on a timely basis.

“Vermonters who need help navigating our

health care system can always reach out to the

consumer team at the Office of the Health

Care Advocate. The team can answer questions,

help point the consumer in the right

direction or possibly assist resolving the matter

altogether,” said Mike Fisher, Vermont’s

Chief Health Care Advocate.

Primary Care

• If you are having trouble securing a primary

care appointment or do not have a primary

care provider, your health insurer may be able

to facilitate finding an available appointment.

Specialty Care

• If you are having trouble securing a specialty

appointment, first contact your Primary

Care Practice, who may be able to help find

an available appointment.

• If your Primary Care Practice is unable to

assist or you do not have a primary provider,

your health insurer may also be able to facilitate

finding an available appointment.

Health insurer contact information and

online consumer tools can be found below:

Resources for Vermont Medicaid Members

If you are a Vermont Medicaid member

and experiencing any issues in accessing the

care you need, please let us know by calling

1-800-250-8427. Vermont Medicaid members

can find Medicaid-participating providers

who are accepting new patients by using

the “Provider Lookup” (http://vtmedicaid.

com/#/providerLookup) or by calling the

Customer Support Center at 1-800-250-8427

to ask for help in locating a provider.

Pfizer Booster

continued from previous page

to get your annual flu vaccine,

and that there is no

waiting period between getting

a COVID-19 booster and

getting your flu shot.

COVID-19 vaccines are

highly effective, and a booster

dose gives your body extra

protection. This is especially

important as the world continues

to face the Delta variant

of the virus that causes

COVID-19. Moderna and

Johnson and Johnson boosters

have not yet been authorized

by the CDC, and we

will keep Vermonters up to

date as we await guidance.

The Vermont-based customer support team

can help members find providers in any specialty

area and is only a phone call away at

Resources for MVP Health Care Members

MVP Health Care provides several resources

to assist its members with accessing timely

care when and where they need it. MVP

offers its members a user-friendly Find a

Doctor tool that can help identify in-network

providers that are accepting new patients.

Additionally, MVP’s customer care team can

help members find provider availability and

assist with scheduling visits when a member’s

current doctor is experiencing longer

than normal wait times by calling

1-800-TALK-MVP or the number of the back

of their ID card.

Resources for Cigna Members

Cigna Customer Service Advocates are

available 24/7/365 to help customers find innetwork

providers. They can also help connect

customers to telehealth (virtual care)

services for both medical and mental health

care.

AUTUMN OUTINGS | FALL 2021

Old Riverton General Store to

Become New Local Food Hub

By CompassVermont.com

Governor Phil Scott has announced funding

to support 28 rehabilitation and revitalization

projects in 22 of Vermont’s designated downtown

and village centers.

The awards help generate over $83 million

in building improvements and public infrastructure

to support local businesses, create

new housing opportunities and incentivize

other community investments.

“The kind of projects we’re funding today,

along with the strategic use of federal relief

dollars, gives us the opportunity to make

transformative change that will have longlasting

impacts around the state,” said Vermont

Governor Phil Scott.

Based on the success of this program, Governor

Scott has proposed increasing available

credits each year since coming to office. As

a result, and with support from the Vermont

Legislature, the cap on these credits has been

raised from $2.4 million to $3 million over the

last five years.

Here are the details on the Riverton General

Store in Berlin.

3795 Crosstown Road, Berlin – Last occupied

in 2007, the former Riverton General

Store will be converted into a mixed-use commercial

space, with a one-bedroom apartment

and a new local food hub, taking advantage

of an existing commercial kitchen, and utilizing

local farm products to provide high quality

fresh and frozen food to go.

State tax credits will support façade repairs

and updates along with code-mandated upgrades.

The Secret to Perfect Applesauce

By Joyce Amsden

Extension Master Gardener

Intern

University of Vermont

One of the great pleasures

of a sunny fall day is

the juicy, sweet crunch of a

new apple, fresh from the

orchard.

Sometimes a trip to

the orchard yields such

a bounty of apples that it

is impossible to eat them

all fresh. This can be particularly

true if you get

“drops.” Most food safety

sources say that “drops”

should be cooked before

eating because of toxins

that can develop on apples bruised by a fall to the ground.

One of my favorite ways to cook apples is to make applesauce.

On its own or with cottage cheese or yogurt, it makes

a delicious breakfast, side dish or snack.

You can make applesauce by peeling, coring and cooking

the apples with a bit of water, then mashing or processing

them to the desired texture. If you have a cone strainer or

food mill, you can try the method below, which retains more

of the apple flavor and sweetness. The lovely pink color and

flavor easily justifies the cost of the strainer or mill, if you

are so inclined.

Different varieties yield different color and sweetness.

(McIntosh is one of my favorites).

Adding cinnamon adds spice and sweetness without calories

or the health problems related to added sugar.

To prepare your apples, first wash them under cool water.

Drain. One at a time, quarter the apples, removing the blossom

ends, stems and core. Place them in a saucepan. Most

sources recommend removing the seeds as they harbor very

minimal traces of a toxin. Although it is unlikely that anyone

would eat enough seeds to cause a problem, there is

another reason to remove the core. The casings around the

seeds do not soften in cooking and can slip through the food

mill into your applesauce and have an unpleasant texture.

When you have prepared your apples, add 1/2 to 1 cup

water to the pot so that the apples don’t burn before they begin

to release their juice. Cover and cook over medium heat

for 15-30 minutes or until soft, stirring frequently. Adjust

heat to avoid scorching.

Put the pulp through a food mill or cone strainer. Season

to taste with cinnamon. I use a heaping teaspoon for three

pounds of apples. Allow the sauce to cool. Taste before

making a decision whether to sweeten with a little honey

or sugar.

Ladle into plastic freezer containers leaving 1/2-inch of

headspace. Freezing best preserves the fresh flavor but has

the disadvantage of having to wait for it to thaw before use.

Being a high-acid food, applesauce also can be canned in

a hot water bath, which has the advantage of being ready

when you are.

If your applesauce makes it to the canning kettle or freezer

without being devoured by your friends and family, it will

make a lovely winter treat.

hard to be rid of, hangs

around

once it sticks.

Now the task becomes

how to be rid of it.

Friends Eternally

By Old George

No more with you will I have fun.

My work on Earth is done.

For the Lord has called me home.

Never more will I see the sun rise.

Nor hear my favorite song sung for me.

For I have gone to my heavenly home.

A ride on horse back.

Will there ever be.

A bird to sing a song for me.

The scent of a beautiful flower.

Now in heaven, I will ever be.

Nor watch a squirrel run through a tree.

No one to go to Wishing Falls.

To make special wish for me.

For now in eternal rest I’ll ever be.

So always be kind to others.

So you can join me in heaven.

To be friends eternally.

‘Neath a Tree

By Old George

Shed not a tear for me.

A soul set free.

My work on Earth is done.

‘Neath this tree my soul will be.

Waiting for you to visit me.

In the eastern sky you’ll see a star,

Changing from green to red to gold.

A special sign from me to let you know.

That my spirit is there with you.

As you let me know, that from your heart.

Your love for me will never go.

As I lay in eternal rest.

I’ll dream of friends, that I loved best.

Oh think of me now and then.

As you gather ‘neath this tree.

For my love for you will never end.

I’ll be there to wait.

To greet you at heaven’s gate.

‘Neath the tree come to visit me.

As you leave.

Do not shed a tear nor cry.

Just smile and wave goodbye.

WORLD SPORTS & OUTDOORS

Vermont Milk Bowl Postponed

to October 16 and 17

Thunder Road and American-Canadian

Tour (ACT) officials have postponed the

Northfield Savings Bank Vermont Milk Bowl

until October 16 and 17 due to an inclement

weather outlook. Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Milk

Bowl Qualifying Day will be held on

Saturday, October 16 with the 59th Vermont

Milk Bowl on Sunday, October 17 on

FloRacing.

Officials had previously cancelled the

Qualifying Day activities scheduled for

October 2 on account of rain. The forecast for

Sunday, October 3 wasn’t much better, with

most outlets calling for a 60% chance of

showers throughout the morning and afternoon.

Based on this forecast, it was determined

the track could not reasonably condense

both the Saturday and Sunday cards

into one day.

As such, both Milk Bowl programs will

now be run in full on October 16 and 17. The

event schedule and divisions remain the same

apart from the date change. Due to the

rescheduling, the Flying Tiger Oxford Open

that was scheduled for October 16 has been

cancelled.

All advance tickets and three-day pit passes

will be honored at the make-up events. If

anyone with advance tickets or a three-day pit

pass cannot attend on the new dates, please

call the Thunder Road/ACT offices at (802)

244-6963 ext. 4 or email tb@thunderroadvt.

com for further information.

“Unfortunately, crowning the 59th Milk

Bowl champion will have to wait two more

weeks,” Thunder Road/ACT managing partner

Cris Michaud said. “We might have been

able to squeeze in just the original Sunday

events based on the forecast, but not both

day’s events. The teams and fans deserve to

get a full Milk Bowl in, and postponing is the

only sure way to give them that.”

“We also apologize to the Flying Tiger

teams that were looking forward to going to

Oxford,” Michaud continued. “There was

going to be a schedule conflict unless we

waited until the end of October, and we

decided we couldn’t risk that based on past

history with Northeast weather. Tom

Mayberry of Oxford was very understanding

of the situation and of us needing to prioritize

the Milk Bowl on our schedule, and we thank

him for that.”

Northfield Savings Bank Vermont Milk

Bowl Weekend resumes Saturday, October 16

at 1:00 p.m. with Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Milk

Bowl Qualifying Day. The Maplewood/Irving

Oil Late Models will run time trials and

50-lap qualifying races to help set the Milk

Bowl starting field. The Lenny’s Shoe &

Apparel Flying Tigers and RK Miles Street

Stocks are running group time trials and the

first segment of their Mini Milk Bowls.

Saturday’s card also includes two-segment

Mini Milk Bowls for the Woodsville Guaranty

Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini’s and Dads

4 By Tool & Supply Kids Trucks of White

Mountain Motorsports Park plus the Junior

Champ Karts.

For more information, contact the Thunder

Road offices at (802) 244-6963, media@

Vermont Ravens Concluded 15th Season

with a 7-12 loss to the Hartford Colts

The Ravens traveled to Cronin Park,

Hartford, CT for the New England Football

League Championship game of the single A

division of the New England Football League

Saturday, October 9.

Coming off a huge first round play-off win

over the Reapers, winning going away 28-0,

Vermont has been riding high and getting better

as the year progressed and seemed to be

peaking at the right time.

Having lost the first meeting with the Colts

early on, Vermont found it’s groove afterward

and while losing one more game during the

season they did beat Hartford the last game in

overtime 32-26 at home in South Burlington

finishing the season 6-2 while Hartford won

the divisions first seed at 7-1.

This with the first-round play-off game win

over the Reapers and advancing to the

Championship game sets up the rubber match

between the two teams as the tie breaker, and

winner of the trophy for 2021.

Vermont finished the season second with a

final record of 7-3 while the Colts win the

Championship and finish with a record of 9-1.

Best Car Waxes and Sealants

Car waxes and paint sealants are both effective ways to protect the

investment you have made in your car.

Both protect the paint layer from UV rays

and intense heat of the sun, moisture, oxidation,

contaminants and mechanical erosion.

Car waxes are derived from natural ingredients.

Paint sealants are entirely synthetic

polymer-based and provide lasting protection

to the color of your car. Car and Driver

rank its best, from five to one.

‘GRAND FINALE’

Zaino’s Grand Finale, a spray sealant,

boasts “a high gloss, deep wet’ finish,

thanks to its synthetic polymer formula.” Car

and Driver continues: “The shine looks great

and after a few weeks, the coat still seemed

very much intact and continues to bead water.

The only downside is it was a bit hard to

apply it evenly, so they recommend diluting

the solution if you have difficulty applying

evenly.” aino is strictly web-based. o

‘LIQUID WAX’

Liquid Wax by CarGuys advertises getting

a wax shine with added synthetic protection

Ranking the Best Tires

Tires are mistakenly often an afterthought on a car. In reality, tires are

among the most important elements of a car and its performance.

The tires support the vehicle load, transmit

traction and braking forces to the surface of

the road and they absorb road shocks. That’s

not to name their role in fuel efficiency that

these unsung heroes do. Automoblog rated

tires for 2021, judging Michelin and Goodyear

the best tire brands with overall scores

of 4.5 in their rating system, followed by

Cooper, Bridgestone and Pirelli, each with

4.0. All five earned superlatives.

BEST TIRE OVERALL

That would be Michelin, according to

Automoblog, which noted an above average

mileage warranty of the Michelin Defender,

which is covered for 80,000 miles. Michelin

also offers original equipment tires and

replacement tires. Both can include a limited

warranty for up to six years on any manufacturer

defects.

BEST DURABILITY

And the winner is … Goodyear, which

boasts a rigorous in-house and independent

testing before sending its tires out to the

marketplace. Automoblog noted one study

by Test World that found Goodyear tires

outperformed other brands in almost every

category and condition, including braking,

acceleration, handling, ice, snow, rain and

dry roads.

reports “really solid results” in their testing.

After a few weeks, the publication said, the

coat still “seemed very hydrophobic.”

‘REVIVE’

By manufacturer Hydrosilex, the spray-on

silica-based Sio2 formula is designed to be

a temporary ceramic coating. “Amazing

hydrophobic qualities,” reported Car and

Driver.

THE LAST COAT

“The best wax replacement since, well,

ever,” according to Car and Driver. sers

will be “blown you away” by its effectiveness,

durability, and “especially ease of use.”

“It gave a very hard and mirror-like shine

that was extremely durable and held up from

the elements, washing, and much more.”

The Last Coat was founded by a professional

detailer with more than 20,000 hours

of real-world detailing experience. And it is

100% made in America, San Diego, California,

to be exact. At one point, The Last Coat

boasted more than 7,000 five-star reviews.

MOST AFFORDABLE

Relative newcomer – 1914, that is –

Cooper tires were considerably cheaper than

most other brands without – and this is key,

of course – without compromising quality.

In its survey, Automoblog found one Cooper

tire ranging in price from $85 to $135, depending,

of course, on vehicle and tire size.

BEST RUN FLATS

If you don’t have a spare tire – looking

at you, sports car guy – or perhaps you’re

picky about where you buy replacement

tires, Bridgestone is your tire for run flats.

Run flats are those tires “can support the

weight of a vehicle for a short time, providing

the driver with about 100 miles of range

to find a repair shop,” according to Edmunds.com.

BEST FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE

Italian manufacturer Pirelli brings an

international presence to this list.

Pirellis have long enjoyed a reputation

as a high-performance tire for luxury and

exotic cars, such as Maserati, Lamborghini,

BMW and Porsche.

It’s the specific thread patters and build

that make for excellent grip on the road

for cars that are doing more than a Sunday

drive.


Mechanic Tales

Mechanics and automobile technicians are

valuable members of the community.

Without them, getting to work, the store, church or

wherever would be a job when the car breaks down.

They’re valuable because they possess a skill that many

of us don’t have. Some customers know a little more than

others, however. Some of the best stories from mechanics,

from Popular Mechanics and Motor-Junkie.com.

IT’S THE ALTERNATOR, HE THINKS

From a mechanic in Grand Prairie, Texas, is this story

about a customer who came into the shop swearing his

alternator was bad. The parts store told him so.

“I popped the hood and solved the problem in about 10

seconds. Both battery terminals were loose, and the B-plus

cable was zip-tied in place. I replaced the missing bolt and

tightened both ends down. The car fired right up.”

FALL CAR CARE

Common

Car Car

Issues

EXHAUSTED EXHAUST SYSTEM

Exhaust systems play an integral role in the operation

of a car, filtering out some nasty stuff. A mechanic in

Florida took a test drive on customer’s car, verifying that

the car was down on power and making a rattling noise,

a common symptom of a failing catalytic converter. The

mechanic took a closer look.

“As I did, something fell out of the pipe: a rock-hard log

of built-up carbon that had formed around a broken filter

element. It was kind of like a pearl, except completely

black and not worth a penny.”

MOTOR? WHAT MOTOR?

This story was gleaned from an article on Jalopnik.

A lady complained to a mechanic that her Prius wasn’t

driving well and her dashboard was lit up with sensor

lights. The mechanics at the dealership found the problem

immediately.

When was the last time she had changed the oil, they

asked?

“Never,” she said. “The Prius doesn’t have a motor, so

why would I do that”

MY CAR IS MAKING A NOISE

It’s amazing what you can find on Reddit. A customer

said there was a “heavy clunking when stopping and the

same clunk when moving from a stop.”

There was a bowling ball in the trunk.

COMMON SENSE NOT

AS COMMON AS IT SOUNDS

A lady complained to her mechanic who had just

changed out her clutch. By the time he returned to the shop

after dropping off her car, she had already called to say she

couldn’t get the car into gear. The dutiful mechanic drove

right back out there to examine the car. He got it running

again without any problem. When he returned to work, she

had once again called to raise hades.

“This time, not just a little angry, but screaming all kinds

of curse words at us,” the mechanic said.

So back to her house the mechanic went to find that she

needed to push the seat up to press the clutch down all the

way.

Routine service and maintenance is as vital to your car as

the warranty everybody keeps calling you about.

Regardless, no good thing a fine-tuned machine in this

case lasts forever. Issues will eventually arise. They are

as common as death and taxes. However, there is a way to

reduce the chances of breakdown and expensive repairs by

keeping an eye out for this common car problems that tend

to appear, according to YourMechanic.com.

THE WARNING LIGHT

The warning light is a common issue for U.S. motor

vehicles. These lights appear in the dashboard when a sensor

in the vehicle’s computer, or engine control unit, detects a

problem. It’s best to leave the diagnosing to the professionals.

In other words, go see a mechanic.

A SPUTTERING ENGINE

Nothing will ruin a day faster than a sputtering engine,

which works best when a complex system of fuel and ignition

components are in harmony.

Always comply to recommended maintenance and timed

replacement of fuel and ignition system components as

recommended by the manufacturer.

POOR FUEL ECONOMY

This is often caused when fuel system components, such

as fuel filters, air filters, mass air flow sensors and O2 sensors

get dirty or wear out. A breakdown in this vehicular

ecosystem will cause the engine to consume more fuel than

usual. Being proactive in routine servicing is the solution.

Pre-Season

Check-Up Time.

A DEAD BATTERY

We’ve all been there. Jump in the car, try to fire up the

ignition and nothing happens. The car experts advise us to

replace your car battery every 50,000 miles or three years,

even if it’s not showing signs of slowdown. See also, damaged

alternator and battery temperature sensor.

THE STARTER

The starter motor is what cranks your engine over, which

begins the starting process. When this fails, it’s usually

because the electrical solenoid has been damaged, the starter

motor breaks, or another electrical fault occurs.

SHAKING STEERING WHEEL

Many things could be at play here. If it happens just as

you’re beginning to drive after starting the car, wheel bearings

or damaged suspension components are likely the issue.

If it happens at higher speeds, it’s typically a tire/wheel

balance issue. For amateurs, go to your mechanic to make a

diagnosis.

OVERHEATING

It might surprise you to learn that overheating is a rarity.

Proper maintenance the radiator, including flushing services,

and switching out the water pump before it goes south are

effective ways to reduce the potential for overheating issues.

AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE EXCELLENCE • ASE CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS • AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE EXCELLENCE

Topics To Discuss Before Hiring Your Next Mechanic

Few decisions weigh as heavily on automobile owners as

their choice of mechanic. A good mechanic goes a long way

toward ensuring drivers and their passengers stay safe on the

road and that those drivers’ vehicles perform at their peak

for years to come. That’s an important role to play, and it’s

why many drivers acknowledge that choosing a mechanic is

a decision that should not be taken lightly.

CERTIFICATION

Certification can go a long way toward helping drivers

find mechanics they can trust. The National Institute for Automotive

Service Excellence was founded in 1972 and continues

to work to improve the quality of automotive service

and repair by testing automotive technicians and certifying

those who live up to or exceed ASE standards. An ASEcertified

technician should have his or her credentials readily

available to prospective customers, and these credentials list

each professional’s area of certification. When shopping for

a new mechanic, make sure that he or she is ASE-certified.

In addition, discuss with the mechanic his or her work history,

including any additional areas of expertise.

PRICING POLICIES

Many mechanics offer free estimates, but that should not

be taken for granted. When bringing a car in for an estimate,

drivers should confirm with the mechanic who will conduct

the examination if the estimate is free or if they will be

charged an inspection fee.

In addition to any fees regarding estimates, drivers should

also inquire about labor costs and the payment policies at the

facility. Labor can be quite expensive, so it’s best that you

know these rates in advance of any repairs being conducted

on your vehicle. It’s also important to get a rundown of the

company payment policies, especially if your vehicle is in

need of potentially costly repairs. You don’t want the bill to

shock you once the work has been completed, so don’t hesitate

to be inquisitive before leaving a car at the garage.

PARTS

Replacing parts on a vehicle is a cause for concern for

many drivers, and rightfully so. Consumer advocacy groups

have exposed many mechanics who pass off used auto parts

as new parts, charging their customers new part prices along

the way. While there’s no way drivers can guarantee they

won’t fall victim to such criminal behavior, they can inquire

about company policies regarding vehicle parts. Does the

garage even install used parts If so, do they let drivers

choose either new or used parts before any work is done

If the garage only uses new parts, ask for parts with solid

warranties, so if the part must be replaced, you won’t have

to pay for it again.

DOCUMENTATION

The preowned vehicle market is thriving, and drivers who

take care of their vehicles have earned the right to reap their

rewards for being good owners when it comes time to sell

the car. When interviewing prospective mechanics, ask if

they are willing to provide detailed documentation of any

work they do on your vehicle. Such documentation can then

be shared with prospective buyers when you want to sell the

car, and it also serves as a way to keep the garage accountable

for all the work they have done on the car throughout

your relationship.

Is your Mechanic ASE Certified?

What it is and Why it matters

While many people have heard

the term “ASE Certified” before,

they may not know what it stands

for or how important it is. However,

when it comes to finding the right

care for your vehicle, the blue ASE

Certified sticker is something you

should always look for.

WHAT IS AN ASE

CERTIFICATION

ASE stands for “Automotive Service

Excellence.” The certification is

issued and regulated by the National Institute for Automotive

Service Excellence.

To complete their certification, mechanics must learn and

display a mastery of automotive repair. In order to do this,

they must follow a long and rigorous process.

First, automotive technicians must complete two years of

on-the-job training. Alternatively, they can finish a two-year

degree in automotive repair and complete one year of on-thejob

training.

After completing the work and education requirements,

applicants must pass a comprehensive exam. Only two thirds

of test takers pass the exam on their first attempt.

In order to maintain their certification, professionals must

re-test every five years. This ensures that they have kept their

skills and knowledge sharp, while also keeping up with new

car technology.

WHY ASE CERTIFICATION IS IMPORTANT

Have you ever gotten a recommendation for a car mechanic

(or really any service professional) that didn’t quite work

out In all likelihood, almost everyone has.

ASE Certifications take the guesswork out of finding a

“good” mechanic.

When you see the blue star logo, you can be sure that your

automotive specialist has demonstrated in-depth knowledge

of automotive repair. They are also guaranteed to have a great

deal of hands-on experience.

ASE CERTIFIED TECHS HAVE FUNDAMENTAL

KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS

In order to be accepted into the course, service professionals

must already have prior experience. This weeds out anyone

who has just a passing interest in automotive technology.

Once technicians are accepted into the program, they

will be tested on the fundamentals of automobile repair and

maintenance.

Among the specifics they are tested on are: automatic and

manual transmission systems, brakes, suspension, frontwheel

drive transaxles, engine repairs, electrical systems,

engine performance and heating and AC repair.

ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE

Anyone who has owned or driven a car for more than a few

years knows how quickly things change. Everything from

suspension systems to entertainment systems is becoming

more sophisticated.

Keeping up with these advancements is incredibly important

for technicians. For example, ten years ago you wouldn’t

have been able to find a mechanic to repair ferrofluid-based

suspensions. That’s because ten years ago they didn’t exist.

However, ASE technicians must re-certify every five years.

This ensures that they are not just up-to-date on all the latest

automobile technology, but experts on them.

A WEALTH OF SHARED KNOWLEDGE

While it is a certification at its core, ASE technicians are

also a community.

There are more than 300,000 ASE-Certified professionals

around the nited States. These professionals share a giant

body of knowledge. Together, they can mine this information

to work towards the goal of top-level automobile care and

service.
