Vermont Expands Booster Shots to Include

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson

Governor Phil Scott and the Department of

Health announced that the State is expanding

its Covid-19 booster shot program to include

the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

In addition, starting October 22 through

pharmacies or your healthcare provider, or

starting on November 1 through the state

registration system, Vermonters ages 18 and

older may choose a booster vaccine that is a

different brand than the one they initially

received. These actions follow the decision

by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration

and the Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention to authorize use of the three vaccines

for booster doses. Pfizer boosters have

been available since September 24.

“Today marks an important step forward in

our efforts to end this pandemic. Vaccines and

booster shots are free, safe, effective and

widely available,” said Governor Scott. “The

vaccines offer the best protection against this

virus, and getting the booster is key to making

sure you have the most protection possible.

We are making doses available in many

places, and I strongly encourage people to get

their booster shots as soon as they can.”

Booster doses are available throughout the

state, with supplies already in hand, and more

are already ordered and being prepared for

shipment to Vermont over the next several

weeks. Booster doses of Pfizer and Johnson

& Johnson are the same as the primary vaccinations,

but the booster amount for Moderna

is a half dose.

Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD

echoed the Governor’s call for all eligible

Vermonters to get vaccinated and reminded

people to closely follow the prevention guidance

– actions he said are essential for curbing

the surge in cases due to the highly contagious

Delta variant. “Being fully vaccinated,

getting your booster shot, and following all

the guidance to protect yourself and others, is

how, together, we stop the spread of the

virus,” said Dr. Levine.

Boosters are free and widely available to

all Vermonters age 18 and older, based on the

following eligibility:

Johnson & Johnson

• Received your vaccine at least two months

ago, and are

• 18 or older

Moderna and Pfizer

• Received your second dose of vaccine at

least six months ago, and are either

• 65 or older

• 18 or older with certain medical conditions

• 18 or older and work in a high-risk setting

• 18 or older and are Black, Indigenous or a

person of color (BIPOC), or age 18 or older

and live with someone who is BIPOC

Starting Friday (10/22), all eligible

Vermonters can visit healthvermont.gov/

MyVaccine to schedule a booster shot at a

nearby location. If you have not previously

been vaccinated through the state registration

system, need assistance, or speak a language

other than English, call 855-722-7878.

People can also contact their health care

provider or a local pharmacy to schedule their

booster, including: Costco, CVS, Hannaford,

Kinney Drugs, Price Chopper/Market 32,

Rite Aid, Shaw’s, Walgreens, and Walmart.

If you have previously been vaccinated

through the state registration system, you can

make your appointment online:

• Visit healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine

• Click the “make an appointment” button.

• Log in to your account. Have the information

you need to log in ready.

• If you are eligible due to work or medical

conditions, you may need to update your

details in the registration system before making

an appointment. Go to the Dependent/

Household/Client tab and click the UPDATE

DETAILS button.

• Proceed with making your appointment.

Please bring your vaccination card with

you when you get your booster shot.

For more information about vaccinations,

booster shots, getting tested and more, visit

healthvermont.gov/covid-19.

Vermont’s Pediatricians Support Updated

School Contact Tracing Guidance

Vermont pediatricians and pediatric infectious

diseases experts support the revised

school contact tracing guidance issued

October 21st, 2021. This guidance was developed

with the input of Vermont pediatricians

and other health care professionals to minimize

disruptions to in-person learning while

limiting in-school transmission of SARS-

CoV-2.

The Delta variant has led to an ongoing

surge of COVID-19 throughout Vermont,

resulting in more cases in Vermont’s preK-12

schools. Unvaccinated close contacts of

SARS-CoV-2 infected staff and students are

required to quarantine at home, leading to

significant missed school days for children,

and in some cases, even school closures in

Vermont.

Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 occurs at a

lower rate in the school setting compared to

settings outside of the school environment.

Mitigation measures, such as universal masking

and staying home when sick, are effective

measures and contribute to lower secondary

attack rates of COVID-19 in the school setting.

Pediatricians agree with aligning

Vermont’s definition of close contacts with

that of the CDC to more precisely identify

those students at highest risk for infection following

in-school exposure while minimizing

quarantines for low-risk, asymptomatic students.

Other states using similar contact tracing

guidance have not seen increased in-school

transmission. For example, Massachusetts

schools have seen a very low test positivity

rate in their Test To Stay program despite

eliminating contact tracing on busses and

using a cut-off of 3 feet rather than 6 feet to

identify close contacts. These reassuring data

helped inform the changes to Vermont’s guidance.

Students and staff with signs or symptoms

of illness, should follow COVID-19 in

Pediatric Patients Triage, Evaluation, Testing

and Return to School guidelines.

AAPVT continues to recommend universal

masking in schools regardless of vaccination

status or school vaccination rate until those

under 12 years of age have had the opportunity

to be vaccinated and local epidemiologic

data indicate substantially lower rates of

COVID-19 transmission.

AAPVT will continue to work closely with

state agencies, school nurses and school leaders

to develop solutions that allow students to

attend school safely while minimizing transmission

of COVID-19.

CVHHH Maternal-Child Health Program Receives

Support from Community National Bank

• • •

• • •

Community National Bank (CNB)

Montpelier Personal Banker Jennifer Garrett

and Teller Malia Matheson recently visited

Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice’s

(CVHHH) Maternal-Child Health team at

CVHHH’s headquarters on Granger Road in

Berlin. The bankers delivered diapers, wipes

and educational books and toys purchased at

Woodbury Mountain Toys in Montpelier for

the Maternal-Child Health Program. The

items were accompanied by a donation from

CNB of $2,500.00.

CVHHH’s Maternal-Child Health program’s

purpose is to help mothers have the

best pregnancy, birth and parenting experience

possible. The program’s Registered

Nurses are reliable and knowledgeable, and

understand the emotions that pregnant women

and new mothers are experiencing. Some of

the services provided include lactation support,

nutrition education, skilled nursing care,

coordinating care, pediatric palliative care

and more. Katy Leffel, RN, BSN, IBCLC,

who oversaw CVHHH’s team until mid-

October, explains, “Ours is an evidencedbased

program which has been carefully

designed and implemented. One of the nicest

perks we offer is through the Strong Families

Vermont Nurse Home Visiting Program. This

initiative allows our nurses to make regular

home visits so that families can stay home

with their newborns instead of having to

come in for office visits.”

To learn more about CVHHH’s Maternal-

Child Health Program and the services offered

visit www.cvhhh.org or call CVHHH at 802-

223-1878. To learn more about Community

Hannaford Donates $100,000 to Vermont

Gleaning Collective to Support Expansion

of Gleaning Food Recovery Efforts

Hannaford Supermarkets

and the Hannaford Charitable

Foundation announced

a $100,000 donation to the

Vermont Gleaning Collective

designed to reduce food

waste and aid hunger relief in

the Green Mountain State.

The donation will support

the work of the Vermont

Gleaning Collective,

a network of organizations

that collect excess produce

from local farms and deliver

it directly to area food pantries

to provide individuals

in need with increased access

to healthy, fresh and locallygrown

food.

The funding is one component

of an overall $350,000

commitment from Hannaford

to support the expansion

of gleaning efforts and

raise awareness about the

fresh food harvesting process

throughout New England and

New York.

“Gleaning programs are

a critical part of our food

system that equally support

such important pillars of our

industry as agriculture, sustainability

and hunger relief,”

said Hannaford Supermarkets

Director of Operations Samara

Bushey. “Hannaford is excited

to help these organizations

enhance their programs,

which ensure that nutritious

produce that would otherwise

go to waste reaches individuals

in need while increasing

both the amount and variety

of fresh, local food available

at pantries. We look forward

to seeing these programs

grow in the years to come

as our communities become

more familiar with the gleaning

process and its important

role in the agriculture cycle.”

Comprised of seven regional

gleaning initiatives

which work collaboratively

as a statewide partnership

of autonomous, communitybased

programs, including

Salvation Farms in Morristown,

the Vermont Gleaning

Collective will use the funding

to expand its reach and

capacity by making investments

in cold storage, trucks

and staff – all of which will

increase the Collective’s ability

to collect, temporarily

store and transport perishable

food gleaned from participating

farms to food pantries in

remote and rural areas of the

state. Funds will also be used

to build the communication,

collaboration and connectivity

between the member programs

of the Vermont Gleaning

Collective.

According to the Vermont

Gleaning Collective,

87 percent of food recipient

sites surveyed reported that

receiving gleaned produce

increased their understanding

of and familiarity with

locally-grown, in-season

produce; while 86 percent of

farms surveyed indicated that

the gleaning program helped

to reduce their on-farm food

loss.

“The members of the Vermont

Gleaning Collective are

honored to be selected for

such a generous contribution.

Hannaford’s recognition of

the power of gleaning within

local communities and its

impact on local farms and local

food systems is a terrific

compliment. While gleaning

serves to put valuable

resources to good use and

provides nutrition to those

most in need of nourishment,

its impact is magnified when

volunteers and food recipients

begin investing in the

farms they have engaged with

through gleaning. Thank you,

Hannaford, for this important

investment in our agricultural

community and local food

system,” said Theresa Snow,

Founder and Executive Director

of Salvation Farms.

Operating at the intersection

of food security, nutrition

and agriculture, the Vermont

Gleaning Collective recovered

nearly 308,000 pounds

of produce from a total of 127

partner farms and served 177

food pantries during the 2020

gleaning season, which runs

annually from approximately

late June through early November.

Additionally, this

network of community-based

programs moved thousands

of pounds of food in 2020 in

support of Covid-19 relief efforts.

“I think it is important to

reduce food waste while at the

same time providing access

to disadvantaged community

members. I strongly believe

that there should not be financial

barriers to accessing

healthy, whole foods or at the

very least ways around financial

barriers, which is what

gleaning services provide,”

said Ryan Demarest at Naked

Acre Farm in Hyde Park, Vt.

“I really appreciate that

you’ve delivered food to us

this year,” said John Howell

of The Manor in Morrisville

about their partnership with

the Vermont Gleaning Collective.

“During the pandemic,

the costs of so many

health-related items went up

so much, so stretching food

resources has been key. I’m

so glad to be part of your network.”

The donation from Hannaford

demonstrates the retailer’s

continued commitment

as an industry leader to

hunger relief and sustainability.

In April 2021, Hannaford

announced that each of its

184 stores donates or diverts

all food at risk of going to

waste, sending no food at all

to landfills.

Each Hannaford store

strictly follows the U.S. Environmental

Protection Agency

Food Recovery Hierarchy,

which prioritizes the rescue

of surplus product for donation

to food insecure individuals

– generating millions

of meals donated annually.

Other key elements of Hannaford’s

food waste diversion

program include donations to

local farmers for animal feed

and food-to-energy conversion

efforts.

Hannaford’s adherence to

this process kept 65 million

pounds of food waste from

reaching landfills in 2020.

Hannaford stores donated

more than 25 million pounds

of food, such as beef and

chicken; fruit and vegetables;

and pasta and eggs, to local

hunger relief organizations in

2020.

About Vermont Gleaning

Collective

The Vermont Gleaning

Collective collaborates as a

statewide partnership of autonomous,

community-based

programs that glean and work

in solidarity to support farmers,

residents, and the food

system. For more information,

AHCA/NCAL Applauds CDC, FDA

for Approving Booster Shots for

Long Term Care Residents, Workers

The American Health Care Association and National

Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) 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 booster

shots of the Moderna and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson)

COVID-19 vaccines for certain 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:

“Once again, we appreciate the FDA and CDC for thoroughly

examining the data and following the science to help

protect Americans, including our nation’s most vulnerable,

from COVID-19. All long term care residents and staff members

will now be eligible to receive a booster shot thanks to

these expanded recommendations. Additionally, the ability to

mix-and-match vaccines for the booster dose will make it

easier for long term care facilities to swiftly access these vaccines

for their residents and staff.

“The rollout of the Pfizer booster shot has gone incredibly

well in long term care, and we are confident that adding

Moderna and Johnson and Johnson into the mix will catapult

our efforts. We appreciate the partnership of federal and

state governments as well as long term care pharmacies and

other vaccine providers to make these vaccination efforts in

nursing homes and assisted living communities efficient and

successful.”

VSECU Kicks Off Annual Program Where

Members Direct $50,000 to Vermont Non-Profits

VSECU is announcing the annual launch

of We Care 2, a member-directed giving program

that distributes 50,000 to Vermont

non-profit organizations.

Now through November 24, VSECU is

accepting applications from Vermont-based

non-profit organizations that make a positive

and direct impact on issues of food, shelter,

heat, financial education, or the environment.

We Care 2 funds are distributed based on the

percentage of votes received from VSECU

members in the credit union’s Annual

Elections. Through this process, each member’s

vote becomes a donation to their preferred

non-profit.

“We look forward to the launch of We Care

2 every year,” said Simeon Chapin,

Community Impact Officer at VSECU.

“Vermont’s non-profit organizations help

hold our communities together and that is

especially needed right now. We are proud to

support their critical work while also empowering

and engaging our members in the act of

charitable giving. It’s always great to see We

Care 2 bring us together and help strengthen

our communities.”

Five finalists will be selected by the We

Care 2 Selection Committee and announced

by early February for inclusion on the 2022

VSECU Annual Elections ballot.

Food Truck Tracker: Lil’ Red Food

Wagon Opens in Northfield

By CompassVermont.com

The town of Northfield and its many visitors

were saddened when the Rustic Restaurant

closed after 65 years of service, but if

Tyler and Cheryl Sabin have anything to say

about it, they will fill at least some of that void

with their new Lil’ Red Food Wagon.

A handful of couples and families stood

outside the wagon, parked on Water Street

United Hospital Fund in 2014 and graduated

from Columbia Business School’s Executive

MBA program in 2016.

“Dr. eyneloglu has an excellent track

record of implementing innovative programs

that enhance quality outcomes and safety for

patients and staff,” said CVMC President and

COO Anna Tempesta Noonan. “We’re thrilled

to have Nejat join our senior leadership

team.”

eyneloglu earned his medical degree from

Ege University School of Medicine in Izmir,

Turkey, and completed his residency in internal

medicine and pediatrics at Yale University/

Bridgeport Hospital in Bridgeport,

Connecticut.

“I’m excited to join the Central Vermont

community and the CVMC team,” said

eyneloglu. “I’m truly impressed with

CVMC’s dedication to the community and

the innovation happening here.”

Organizations who have been awarded We

Care 2 funds in the past three years will not

be selected as finalists for this year’s program.

Past recipients include the Clarina Howard

Nichols Center, Greater Bennington Interfaith

Services, North Central Vermont Recovery

Center, ReSOURCE, and the U.S. Committee

for Refugees and Immigrants Vermont.

Becky Gonyea, Executive Director of

Clarina Howard Nichols Center, said, “As a

small non-profit that relies heavily on grant

funding, the We Care 2 program provided

flexible funding to fill in the gaps and meet

emergency needs. This funding supported the

operation of our shelter, and the emergency

needs of survivors in our shelter, including

medical prescriptions, moving expenses, auto

insurance, and transportation costs. It was

critical that our shelter continued to operate

during the pandemic, and the We Care 2 program

funding helped to ensure that our doors

stayed open.”

Non-profit organizations that positively

impact Vermonters’ access to food, shelter,

heat, financial education, or a healthy environment

are invited to apply for We Care 2

funding through November 24 at vsecu.com/

across from Kenyon’s Hardware, as the Sabins

busily passed out hot burgers, crispy

french fries, and other well-portioned plates

full of hot food.

Cheryl Sabin told Compass Vermont that

she and Tyler hoped to give another option for

eating out, and would try to stay open through

the winter, weather permitting.

The board outside of the wagon has a handwritten

menu featuring burgers and hotdogs,

chicken, Italian grinders, and kids’ meals.

The Sabins have said that menu items will

be changing from time to time as well. It

was hard to miss one special for the family,

or perhaps a single NFL linebacker, that featured

three cheeseburgers, three hotdogs, one

large order of french fries, and three waters

or sodas.

Comments on social media have praised

the food and friendly service, and a particular

focus on the maple fries.

Lil’ Red Food Wagon is open Wednesday

- Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays

from noon to 8 p.m.

Grant Program Available to Cover Permitting Costs for

Value-Added Forest Products Businesses

The Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation

(FPR) announced the availability of grant funds to

cover permitting costs for businesses engaged in

adding value to forest products.

The Vermont Value-Added Forest Products

Permitting Assistance Grant Program (FPPA

Grants) has 25,000 to award grants ranging from

a minimum of 500 to a maximum of 5,000.

Funds for this program are State funds allocated by

the Vermont Legislature and signed into law by

Governor Scott in Act 83 in 2019.

To be eligible, businesses must be in Vermont

and be primarily engaged in adding value to forest

products, such as sawmills, firewood processors, and

furniture makers. Businesses that are limited to the

activities of logging and forestry are not eligible.

“This program provides much-needed assistance

with the permitting costs many of these businesses

face,” said Vermont Forests, Parks, and Recreation

Commissioner Michael Snyder. “These businesses

are critical to our state, providing a local source for

forest products we use in our lives every day, supporting

our rural communities and economies, and

maintaining our forested landscape and its many

benefits we all enjoy.”

Grants may be used to pay for expenses associated

with State and local permit application fees,

project consultation costs, engineering and siting

costs, and expert witness testimony for permitting

of land use, equipment and infrastructure.

Applications will be received and reviewed on a

rolling basis. For more information and to complete

the application, visit https://fpr.vermont.gov/

THE EVENT

Who Coined the Term “Climate

Change?” A “Versatile Vermonter”

By CompassVermont.com

In a recent Times of San

Diego article about Climate

Change, author Andrew M.

McClellan reminded readers

that the “first recorded mention

of the term ‘climate change’ in

English comes from George

Perkins Marsh’s 1847 address

to the Agricultural Society of

Rutland County, Vermont.

The Clark University

George Perkins Marsh Institute

calls Marsh an extraordinary

man with “boundless

energy, endless enthusiasms, and immense

intelligence.”

America’s first environmentalist, Marsh’s

book, Man and Nature; or, Physical Geography

as Modified by Human Action, warned

readers about the destructive impact humans

and their activities would have on the planet.

Marsh was born in Woodstock to a wealthy

family, studied law in Burlington after college

at Dartmouth, and was a true Renaissance

Man.

The Institute writes about March’s broad

interests and accomplishments:

His biographer David Lowenthal referred

to him as a “versatile Vermonter,” alluding to

his roots and his exibility in his metiers.

Throughout his 80 years, Marsh had many

careers as a lawyer (though, by his own

words, “an indifferent practitioner”), newspaper

editor, sheep farmer, mill owner, lecturer,

politician, and diplomat.

He also tried his hand at various businesses

but failed miserably in marble quarrying, railroad

investment, and woolen manufacturing.

He studied linguistics, knew 20 languages,

wrote a definitive book on the origin of the

English language, and was known as the foremost

Scandinavian scholar in North America.

As a congressman in Washington (1843-

49), Marsh helped to found and guide the

Smithsonian Institution. He served as U.S.

Minister to Turkey for five years, where he

aided revolutionary refugees and advocated

for religious freedom. He spent the last 21

years of his life (1861-82) as U.S. Minister to

the newly United Kingdom of Italy.

Today, so much of what Marsh portended is

visible. On that day in Rutland,

he spoke of draining swamps,

clearing forests, wildfires, and

loss of vegetation. Reading

the passages below, one from

his 1847 speech and the other

from his book Man and Nature,

could have been written

today.

From Man and Nature:

The operation of causes set

in action by man has brought

the face of the Earth to a desolation

almost as complete as

that of the moon.

From the Agricultural Society of Rutland

County, Vermont speech:

Man cannot at his pleasure command the

rain and the sunshine, the wind and frost and

snow, yet it is certain that climate itself has

in many instances been gradually changed

and ameliorated or deteriorated by human action.

The draining of swamps and the clearing

of forests perceptibly affect the evaporation

from the Earth, and of course the mean quantity

of moisture suspended in the air. The same

causes modify the electrical condition of the

atmosphere and the power of the surface to

reect, absorb and radiate the rays of the sun,

and consequently inuence the distribution of

light and heat, and the force and direction of

the winds. Within narrow limits too, domestic

fires and artificial structures create and diffuse

increased warmth, to an extent that may affect

vegetation.

Befitting of a description of someone from

the Green Mountain State, Marsh’s biographer,

David Lowenthal, says that “to understand

Marsh’s ‘omnicompetence’ one needs

to look at the 19th century Vermont way of

life which fostered many diverse talents.”

“Marsh’s early semi-blindness forced him

away from reading and into observing the forests

near his boyhood home. With his voracious

appetite for all knowledge, he grew into

a generalist who developed a concept of human

geography that was unique in his time.”

Governor Phil Scott Announces Release of ARPA

Funds for Home Weatherization Efforts

Governor Phil Scott and the Department

for Children and Families (DCF) announced

the approval of the use of $7.9 million in

funding from the American Rescue Plan Act

(ARPA) to expand the Weatherization Assistance

Program. Weatherization helps eligible

households reduce their energy usage, lower

their utility bills, and improve the comfort and

safety of their homes.

“Weatherization continues to be a cornerstone

of our efforts to improve the energy efficiency

of Vermont homes and cut greenhouse

gas emissions,” said Governor Scott. “The

Weatherization Assistance Program typically

weatherizes between 800 to 1,000 homes each

year. This investment will allow more than

550 additional homes to be weatherized, helping

create good weatherization jobs, reduce

costs for Vermonters and help our planet.”

Governor Scott has long championed

weatherization, proposing major funding

increases in his budget address in January,

and again in April following the passage of

ARPA, as part of his historic funding proposals

for climate change mitigation efforts.

About $1.6 million of the additional funding

will be used to provide “one-stop” comprehensive

weatherization and efficiency improvements

in multi-family housing.

A household is eligible for no cost weatherization

services if their gross household

• • •

income is below 80% of the median income

in their area. A family of four with an annual

income of about $67,000 would be eligible in

most Vermont communities.

“Weatherization saves the Vermonters we

serve about 35%, on average, on their home

energy use,” said DCF Office of Economic

Opportunity Director Sarah Phillips. “That

helps lower their energy bills, keeping money

in their pockets for other necessities like food,

clothing and medications.”

Priority for funding is given to households

receiving Seasonal Fuel Assistance;

high-energy use homes; families with young

children; older Vermonters; and people with

disabilities.

Free weatherization services include energy

audits (e.g., blower door testing and infrared

scans); energy renovations (e.g., insulation,

air sealing, heating system upgrades); efficiency

coaching; health and safety improvements

(e.g., improving ventilation, addressing

carbon monoxide and unsafe heating issues);

and referrals to other programs and services.

On average, the program makes about

$8,500 worth of improvements per home,

adds about 1,500 square feet of insulation and

reduces drafts by about 40%.

Program and how to apply, go to http://

ACT Postpones Series and Track

Banquets Until Spring of 2022

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) has officially postponed

the season-ending banquets for the series and its sanctioned

tracks until the spring of 2022. The decision was made

due to health and safety concerns about the potential spread of

the COVID-19 virus in an indoor environment.

The ACT, Thunder Road, and White Mountain Motorsports

Banquet of Champions typically have high attendance due to

the number of teams and individuals being honored. With

outdoor banquets not a realistic option at this time of year, and

the science showing that COVID-19 spreads much more easily

indoors, officials have chosen to exercise an abundance of

caution.

Officials will mail out the point fund checks for ACT,

Thunder Road, and White Mountain at the beginning of

November. Banquet details for all ACT series and tracks will

be announced at a later date. The 2022 schedules should be

finalized by early December. continued on page 9


OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH | THE WORLD

Breast Cancer Awareness History

Since 1985, October has been recognized as

Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It was initially a collaboration of

The American of Family Physicians,

AstraZeneca Healthcare Foundation,

Cancer Care Inc. and other sponsors.

In more recent years, corporations

and sports leagues have banded

together to boost awareness during

the month. All of which has been a

boon to fundraising efforts in bettering

treatment with a goal of one day

eradicating the scourge.

WHAT IS THE GOAL?

The early goal of Breast Cancer

Awareness Month was to educate

women about breast cancer and early

detection tests, according to Brevard

Health Alliance. One in eight women

will be diagnosed in their lifetime.

One of chief objectives was to promote

mammograms as an important

tool to be used in the fight against

breast cancer.

During the month of October,

breast cancer survivors and those

with breast cancer are celebrated and

encouraged to share their stories. The

month is also dedicated to raising

funds for breast cancer research and

other related causes.

Since 1985, billions of dollars have

been raised for the cause. Since 1990,

death rates from breast cancer have

been declining, in part because of

better screening and early detection,

and improved treatment options.

THE SYMBOLIC PINK RIBBON

The first nationwide campaign that

utilized the pink ribbon was in 1992

by Estée Lauder cosmetics. They

handed out 1.5 million pink ribbons,

making them recognizable as the

premier visual reminder of Breast

Cancer Awareness Month.

The NFL has become one of the

largest supporters of breast cancer

awareness month, with nearly all

players, coaches and referees donning

the pink ribbon each October to show

their support.

In 2021, the NFL and American

Cancer Society will be teaming up

for a 13th consecutive season to support

the cause through the league’s

Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer. The

initiative also promotes early detection

and mammogram screenings and

risk reduction efforts.

Since 2012, the NFL has funded

the American Cancer Society’s Community

Health Advocates Implementation

Nationwide Grants for Empowerment

and Equity (CHANGE)

grants, which have contributed to

370,000 screenings in underserved

communities and reached more than

1 million individuals with education,

screening reminders and patient

navigation. This, in turn, brings these

life-saving messages and screening

services to those who need them

most, according to the league.

Spread Awareness

If you have been personally affected by breast cancer or have a friend or family member who has been

affected, you may be looking for ways to help spread awareness and support breast cancer patients.

Here are some ideas from the National Breast Cancer

Foundation and the National Foundation for Cancer Research.

1. Share your story of how breast cancer has impacted you

on the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s website. During

the month of October, the organization will share stories on

their website as a “celebration of strength and a message of

support to those currently on their own breast cancer journey.”

Visit https://bit.ly/3lT2HVH to share.

2. Make a one-time or monthly donation to help a woman in

need get screening or access to treatment. Visit https://bit.

ly/3AyJEnL to donate.

3. Spread the word on your social media channels. Link to

your favorite breast cancer research or aid organization.

You could also consider hosting a virtual fundraiser or a

Facebook fundraiser.

4. Proudly wear a pink ribbon during October or year-round.

It creates a conversation starter to help you share your story.

5. Alternatively to wearing a pink ribbon, participate in

Breast Cancer Now’s Wear it Pink Day. On October 22,

20211, wear a pink outfit and coordinate with friends to help

spread awareness. You can also host a fundraiser on the day.

5. Breast cancer patients may not always ask for help when

they need it. Go out of your way to offer help proactively.

Say something like, “Could I come over and walk the dog

every afternoon next week?” or “Can I bring dinner for the

family on your upcoming treatment days?”

6. Many chemo wards take donations of clothing, scarves

and hats for patients. Reach out to local organizations to see

what good or services they could use.

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Schedule Your Screening

Call us directly to schedule your mammogram,

or you can involve your provider’s office.

FEAST Senior Meals Program

Manager, Kim Myers

Q: How did your life journey

lead you to this role?

A: I have a close relationship to

food and I’m a care giver by nature.

I have spent a lot of my life as a

farmer growing vegetables, raising

animals, and growing beautiful

flowers. I’ve always enjoyed growing

food for people and teaching

them how to prepare vegetables and

incorporate them into their meals. I

worked with small organic farms,

food banks, and food justice organizations. I feel very lucky to

be in a position where I can make sure that people are getting

fed delicious and nutritious meals.

Q: Who has inspired you in your life, and how?

A: I am inspired by the advocates that I know. The people

that speak out and stand up for others. I’m continually learning

how to use my voice and my privilege to stand up for other

people.

Q: What does community mean to you?

A: I love my community in Montpelier dearly. My community

shows up for each other in ways that astound me.

Community means care, connection, communication and fun.

Trunk or Treat

Our Annual Trunk or Treat Event will be Saturday, October

30th from 3-5pm. Contact us to decorate a vehicle ($10 a car)

Looking for Pumpkins

The library would like to give away 25 pumpkins to youth

in Williamstown like we did last year. If you have a

pumpkin(s) you are happy to part with, please contact the

library 433-5887.

Searching for a Turkey

Every month the WES Librarian and the Ainsworth Public

Librarian try to do a coordinated event. In November, we

would like have an event for youth where the big prize would

be a turkey. We are seeking a turkey to give away. Do you

have one you would like to donate? We are also looking for a

live turkey to make a video with. If you can help us, please

contact the library. 433-5887

Pumpkin Centerpiece Fundraiser

The Library is selling $4 pumpkin centerpieces on Saturday,

October 30 on the Library lawn 10-2pm. Stop by. See a photo

of them on our website.

who encouraged hours of play in his classroom’s labs; about

how she found a sanctuary in science, and learned to perform

lab work done “with both the heart and the hands”; and about

the inevitable disappointments, but also the triumphs and

exhilarating discoveries, of scientific work.

Yet at the core of this book is the story of a relationship

Jahren forged with a brilliant, wounded man named Bill, who

becomes her lab partner and best friend. Their sometimes

rogue adventures in science take them from the Midwest

across the United States and back again, over the Atlantic to

the ever-light skies of the North Pole and to tropical Hawaii,

where she and her lab currently make their home.

Copies of the book are available for check-out now at the

library. At this moment the library intends to have the discussion

at the library which has recently purchased air purifiers

for the building. However, depending on the number of

COVID cases in the area, the discussion might be changed to

an online discussion. For more information call the library at

472-5948.

Q: How do you like to spend your time when not serving

the community?

A: In my spare time I’m an avid gardener who grows food

and unruly flowers. I love swimming, climbing mountains,

kayaking, and biking. I also enjoy baking and reading in the

hammock with my daughter.

Q: What’s a little-known fact about you or your background

that people might be surprised to learn?

A: I was once a Park Ranger in Utah and also was once a

Prairie Dog catcher in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Q: Where is your favorite Montpelier spot these days?

A: Dog River Field because I’ve been having so much fun

watching my third grade daughter play soccer and learn the

joys of being on a team.

Energy Grants for Vermont Churches

Vermont Interfaith Power & Light wants to help Vermont

churches with funding support to make energy improvements

that will reduce their energy use, and fall is an excellent time

for churches to have an energy audit or to initiate energy efficiency

projects. Vermont Interfaith Power & Light (VTIPL)

has a matching grant program to help churches undertake

these energy projects to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions,

and to save money.

In 2021 Vermont Interfaith Power & Light’s (VTIPL) Katy

Gerke Memorial Program (KGMP) has already provided five

churches with matching grants to help fund projects that will

reduce their energy use:

• Rupert Congregational–air sealing and insulation

• LOVE802 Christian Church, Rutland–energy audit

• Ascension Lutheran, South Burlington–heating pipe insulation

• United Church of Northfield–air sealing and insulation

• Our Savior Lutheran, Hanover, NH–energy audit

Since 2014, the Katy Gerke Memorial Program (KGMP),

has awarded over $125,000 in matching grants to Vermont

churches to help them implement energy efficiency projects.

These projects include: energy audits, air sealing, insulation,

efficient lighting, energy efficient HVAC, including heat

pumps, etc., that will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions

and operating costs for these churches.

• • •

The Katy Gerke Memorial Program was established by Dr.

Paul Gerke in memory of his wife, the late Dr. Katy Gerke.

The mission of the program is to improve the energy efficiency

of Christian churches and church-owned buildings in

Vermont and the following twelve Upper Connecticut River

Valley towns in New Hampshire: Bath, Charleston,

Claremont, Cornish, Hanover, Haverhill, Lebanon, Lyme,

New London, Oxford, Piermont and Plainfield. Churches

seeking grant support from this program may obtain information

on grant criteria and application forms from the VTIPL

website – www.vtipl.org.

In addition to these matching grants, churches in Vermont

may also be eligible for financial incentives from Efficiency

Vermont for weatherization and the installation of energy

efficient equipment, e.g., lighting, HVAC equipment and

advanced wood heating systems. Contact Efficiency Vermont

at 888-921-5990, http://www.efficiencyvermont.com.

Churches that are Vermont Gas (VGS) customers should also

contact VGS to take advantage of programs that can help

them save money on their energy bills and reduce their carbon

footprint. Contact VGS at (802) 863-4511, https://www.vermontgas.com/commercial-energy-services.

Vermont Interfaith Power & Light is a Vermont 501c(3)

whose mission is to inspire and to support people of faith and

conscience to take bold and just actions on climate change.

ACT Postpones Banquets continued from page 6

Cabot Creamery Co-operative has launched a Farmer Pen

Pal Program, to connect their younger fans with the dairy

farmers who supply the creamery. The program is designed to

give a first-hand account of life on a dairy farm, the journey

from cow to cheese, and all things farming.

“Our farm families are what makes Cabot so special,” said

Rose Gomez, Cabot Farmer Integrator. “What better way to

connect kids to the food they enjoy, than by hearing it directly

from the farmers who produce it?”

When teachers or parents sign up for the Farmer Pen Pal

Program, they receive letters from Cabot farmers, activity

sheets, teacher resource guides, and classroom presentations

to help bring the program to classrooms and homes. Since its

initial launch in April 2021, the Cabot Farmer Pen Pal Program

has worked with 6,800 children.

“We’ve been thrilled with the response to our Farmer Pen

Pal Program in just its first six months,” said Gomez. “We’re

excited to connect our Farmer Pen Pal followers with Jenni

Tilton-Flood, one of our farmers, through a virtual farm tour

later this month.”

The Cabot Farmer Pen Pal Program’s first-ever zoom farm

tour will take place on October 27th at 10 a.m. EDT. Farmer

Jenni Tilton-Flood from Clinton, Maine will show and share

the ways her family cares for their cows and the planet, plus

she will answer questions live from participants. Cabot is giving

away 50 Cabot cheese gift boxes to farm tour attendees.

Winners will be drawn at random and announced after the

virtual farm tour. Sign up for the tour here: https://us02web.

zoom.us/webinar/register/WNb0nl2y7SqiSSkdGKDgxdw.

Beyond the Pen Pal Program, Cabot offers a number of

ways for kids to connect with farmers including the Cabot

Farm Trail which was launched in the spring of 2021 and the

free Farm Love Patch Program. The Cabot website also offers

many kid-friendly activities including easy-to-make recipes

and learning tools such as activity worksheets geared toward

elementary-aged children.

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 that comprise

Agri-Mark, Inc. the Northeast’s premier dairy cooperative.

Since its founding, all profits have been returned to the farm

families who own the co-op—a practice that continues to this

day. Agri-Mark/Cabot farms are located throughout New England

and upstate New York. For more information, visit: http://

www.cabotcheese.coop. Cabot Creamery Co-operative is the

world’s first cheese maker and dairy cooperative to achieve B

Corporation Certification.

Pollinator-friendly gardens not only provide a source of

nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies and other beneficial

insects but can add beauty and diversity to a home landscape.

To help gardeners and homeowners understand the role of

pollinators in food production and provide strategies for creating

pollinator habitat, a group of University of Vermont

(UVM) Extension Master Gardener volunteers have developed

Gardening for Pollinators and Beneficial Insects. The

e-book, available now for garden planning this winter, can be

downloaded for free at https://go.uvm.edu/garden4pollinators.

In addition to identifying some common pollinators and

beneficial insects, the authors also delve into the causes of

pollinator decline and provide insight into why choosing

native plants is so important for providing proper habitat for

pollinators.

The e-book includes a number of tips for creating an effective

pollinator garden, such as planting a minimum of 10

native plants with different colors, shapes and bloom times

and selecting at least three varieties each for early, mid and

late season bloom. Links to a pollinator plant palette chart,

nurseries and several native plant databases are provided for

help with plant selection.

Other sections cover additional recommended features,

such as a water source, for creating an inviting garden and tips

for being a good host to insects, including planting tall native

grasses and interplanting vegetables with flowers. The e-book

also is packed with links to resources on native plants, pollinator-friendly

garden planning and pollinators and beneficial

insects, as well as the UVM Extension Master Gardener

Program.

For more information about the Master Gardener Program

in Vermont, visit ww.uvm.edu/extension/mastergardener.

In recognition of National Veterans Small

Business Week, The Veterans Business

Outreach Center of New England and the

Small Business Administration are hosting a

free webinar at 11 a.m. Nov. 1 for Vermont

Veterans about the resources available to servicemembers

and service-connected family

members.

Learn about VBOC’s wide array of workshops,

training, counseling, and mentorship

opportunities available throughout New

England. VBOC also assists in navigating

SBA’s extensive resource partner network

and can refer Veterans to a community partner,

lender, or SBA program, such as Boots

To Business or a guaranteed loan.

To register, visit https://sba-vboc.ecenterdirect.com/events/22261.

The agenda also includes a presentation by

Dr. Travis Reynolds, a UVM agricultural and

applied economist. He will speak about food

resiliency and how Vermont’s agricultural

response to Hurricane Irene and the COVID-

19 pandemic will help the state cope with

similar challenges in the future.

On the second day of the conference, participants

will hear from members of the

Barton Community Garden with stories about

the challenges and successes of their “giving

garden,” an effort to fight hunger locally. Ari

Rockland-Miller, co-founder of The

Mushroom Forager in Richmond, will offer

advice on growing and harvesting mushrooms.

Rounding out the agenda is Ellen Ecker

Ogden who will share her expertise on heirloom

vegetable and flower gardens and how

gardeners can design their own kitchen garden

using heirloom varieties. Ogden, who

lives in Manchester Village, is the author of

five gardening books.

All presentations will be recorded and

include a &A session. UVM Extension

Master Gardener and Master Composter volunteers

also are invited to participate in a

post-conference session from 3:45-4:45 p.m.

on both days.

The conference is sponsored by the UVM

Extension Community Horticulture Program

with funding from the Gardener’s Supply

Company in Burlington and Lamb Lumber

Company, Lake Placid, New York.

“We believe this is the best and safest thing

to do given the circumstances,” ACT managing

partner Cris Michaud said. “We know our

teams like being able to dress up and celebrate

their accomplishments right after the

season while it’s still fresh on everyone’s

mind. But it’s simply not worth the potential

health and safety risks in the current environment.

We look forward to having celebrations

for ACT, Thunder Road, and White Mountain

in the spring that will be worth the wait.”

Ralph Geer Jr.

Ralph Geer Jr., 69, a skilled carpenter,

craftsman and man of deep faith, passed

away on Sept. 23, 2021.

He was diagnosed with lung cancer in

spring of 2021, which advanced rapidly,

and died peacefully in his strong Christian

faith at Central Vermont Medical

Center, where he was visited in his last

days on Earth by close friends and family.

Ralph was born in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

on Jan. 14, 1952, the son of Ralph Geer

Sr. and Gladys Slocum, and grew up there and at the ancestral

home known as “the farm” in Hillsdale, N.Y. As a child, he

grew to love the countryside at the farm where he spent much

time outdoors playing in the rural surroundings and fishing

in the local creek along with his cousins and sister Ruth Ann.

In 1969, the family moved to Montpelier. He graduated

from Montpelier High School in 1971 and continued his education

at Johnson State College, majoring in chemistry and art.

Ralph bought his home on Apple Hill in East Calais in the

early 1980s, where he gardened, hunted in his beautiful woods

and began an accomplished carpentry career that touched

many lives, not to mention many homes and properties in the

Montpelier area and around his neighborhood in Calais. He

worked as a craftsman willing to take on many projects, big

and small, from carpentry to plumbing and electrical work

with painstaking and exacting craftsmanship, carrying his

tools around in trademark fashion: in a couple of sheetrock

buckets.

He combined his work with his Christian faith and generosity.

For years he did handiwork and small projects at Christ

Episcopal Church in Montpelier, where his parents were longtime

members. He donated his time, skills and funds to Habitat

for Humanity and to those who could not afford to pay for

projects. He was known for being dependable and always doing

what he promised.

In 2003, he joined the historic Old Brick Church in East

Montpelier where, upon his profession of faith, he became a

stalwart member of the congregation and later a deacon. The

church and parish were an important part of his life.

Family and friends were what was most valuable to him.

Ralph was frugal and lived very simply but when it came to

others, he was caring and generous, giving the proverbial shirt

off his back. This was a gift he gave freely, whether it was

skilled help, his own time, or lending an ear to listen.

He especially enjoyed time spent with his niece Greta as

she grew up in Montpelier. Together they explored nearby hiking

trails, perfected their drawing skills, built model cars and

conducted many science experiments. Years later when Greta

married and moved to Block Island, R.I., Ralph continued to

show his playful side with the next generation, taking considerable

joy in his two grand-nephews, Finn and Reis. Ralph’s

visits to Block Island included fishing, hiking and beachcombing

with the boys and were treasured by all.

Ralph was a strong supporter of veterans, the 2nd Amendment

and in recent years, together with close friend Scott

Stone and his sons Aiden and Soren, Ralph developed a strong

bond with a group who met at the range of the Montpelier Gun

Club in Berlin. He became especially close through the club

to Jaime DeJesus, a fellow carpenter, sharing his time, skills

and friendship. The group’s visit during his hospital stay was

a delight to him in his last days.

Ralph is survived by his sister Ruth Ann Geer of Montpelier;

his niece Greta Heinz and her husband Scott and their two

sons, Finn and Reis; and many friends who connected with

him through his work and dedication to his community.

Ralph was interned at the Ralph Geer Memorial Garden

with his parents at Christ Episcopal Church. Contributions in

his memory can be made of The Old Brick Church or to the

Palliative Care unit at Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin.

A memorial service will be held at the Old Brick Church in

East Montpelier at a later date.

Arrangements were made with Guare & Sons Funeral

Home. Online condolences may be left at www.guareandsons.

Inge Hougasian

MONTPELIER, VT.- Inge Hougasian,

87, passed away peacefully at Berlin

Meadows in Barre, Vt. on August 21,

2021 with a dear friend by her side. Born

on December 13, 1933 in Oberhausen,

Germany, she was the daughter of Anton

Spill and Paula (Radetzki) Spill. Inge’s

early educational accomplishments were

completed in her home country of Germany.

Inge married Bob Hougasian, an

American soldier, in Sembach, West Germany

on May 19, 1960 and they came to the United States

later that same year. They lived in many states due to Bob’s

army assignments. New York, Maine, Mississippi, and Michigan

are just some of the places they were assigned to. They

later divorced in 1979. Inge made a comfortable life for herself

in Montpelier Vt.

One of Inge’s memorable achievements that she was ever

so proud of was when she established her US citizenship on

December 5, 1966.

Inge was very passionate and took great pride in all the

work she did throughout her life. She spoke often of many

memories while working at Nate’s Mens Clothiers in Montpelier

and Homer Fitts in Barre. She also enjoyed her time working

at Hunger Mountain Co-op for 16 years before retiring.

Inge really enjoyed dancing in her late teens and early twenties

– this brought her much joy. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting

and coloring. Her love for cats was strong, especially

for all of her own fur babies. She enjoyed owers, reading,

bird watching and decorating. Inge’s home matched every

season and holiday as they came. She especially loved Christmas

time and her home country of Germany’s traditions. Any

chance Inge got she would take the opportunity to share her

stories and educate people. She was a book of knowledge.

Inge was a devoted member of the Montpelier SASH (Support

and Services at Home) program. She will be extremely

missed by all of her friends at the Prospect Street Apartments

where she lived as well as her Friday afternoon coffee club

friends. She will be remembered for her honesty, advice, feisty

determination and caring spirit.

Inge is survived by one brother, Harry Spill living in Germany,

two cousins Karin Marden of Gold Canyon, AZ, and

Astrid Mahany of New Gloucester, ME as well as her niece

and nephew. Close friends include Jen LaPan, Diane Stark and

Melissa Benner.

Inge was predeceased by Bob Hougasian, as well as her

three siblings, Horst, Ingrid and Britta.

Per Inge’s request there will be no service. We ask in lieu

of owers that you keep Inge’s memory alive by making a

donation in her name to a charity of your choice that serves

animals.

Kathie Moulton

Kathie was born September 8, 1944 in Jacksonville Florida.

She died October 20, 2021 at the age of 77.

Her chief passion in life was horses. She was devoted to her

4H horse club and in 2007 got an award for 34 years of exceptional

leadership along with her long time friends Mary Ann

McFaun and Jeannette Hogan. She and her farm partners, Con

and Jeannette Hogan, founded East Hill Farm Family Riding

Stable in Plainfield in 1975. The farm is still operational, now

run by Hogan’s daughter Ruth. Kathie competed in Dressage

events all over New England but her true love was training her

horses and teaching others to ride. She was certified as a Level

1 and Level 2 dressage instructor. She spent many years trucking

and coaching 4H kids and adults at horse shows in Essex

Jct., Woodstock, etc.

Before taking up horses as a full time occupation, she

worked as Personnel Director for the Dept. of Correction and

Norwich University.

Kathie also will be remembered by many for the 25 years

she, her husband, Con and Jeannette Hogan hosted the annual

4H Bluegrass Benefit at the farm. Hundreds of folks came each

year to celebrate fall and listen to the dozens of musicians that

graced the stage, usually headlined by Dan and Willie Lindner.

Later in life when the physical demands of riding horses

caught up with her, she took up dog training and showed

her Standard Schnauzers from Canada to Pennsylvania. She

served as a board member of the Green Mountain Dog Club

and helped run the annual dog show at Tunbridge.

In spite of the fact that her entire family was nearly wiped

out in the great Delaware River ood of 1962, she loved being

on the water and especially Lake Champlain. She went on

several cruises that included Alaska and South America with

long time friends Ross and Gail Anderson in their boat 10&2.

In 2004 she also piloted her own trawler Gypsy in a circumnavigation

of the Adirondacks.

Late in life she discovered the joy of making pottery and

spent many happy hours with her friends at the Mud Studio

in Middlesex.

She is survived by her husband Bill, her brothers Jon and

Bob and her sister Casey.

movies, old money collecting, antiques, cars and mechanical

repair. He was known as a “legend in his time” amongst some

of his family and friends. He loved to talk with people, especially

his elders, and learn about their history.

The Barre Area Veterans Council would like to express our

disappointment with the Barre City Council as it pertains to

the recent requests to display a special ceremonial flag intended

to recognize the sacrifices of those lost on September 11th,

2001 and the unity of our great nation and local community

following such a tragic event.

The flag that was to be displayed was made by community

members, students, and local businesses after the horrific

attack on our nation on September 11th, 2001. It was first

flown on October 13, 2001. And it was and is still a symbol

of unity. A symbol of people of varying backgrounds and

personal beliefs coming together as one community to stand

united.

At the City Council meeting on September 7th, 2021, a

motion was made to allow for the flag to be displayed with the

proper repairs needed to ensure safety. This motion received

no second, and based on parliamentary procedure, the presiding

officer, in this case the Mayor, had no choice but to recognize

that the motion died. However, prior to this action,

comments or rather opinions were allowed from City

Councilor Cambel who stated, in part, that she found the large

flag intimidating. After these comments were made, the

Mayor asked for a second. Hearing none he declared that the

motion failed. WIth no second to the motion, no other discussion

was allowed. At the end of the meeting, Councilor

Cambel was thanked by two other councilors for her eloquent

Barre’s Flag Display

Statement by the Coalition for Vermont Student Equity on Legislative Proposal

to Remove English Language Learners from the Pupil Weighting Formula

A legislative task force that has been meeting over the summer

and fall to implement the 2019 Pupil Weighting Factors

Report decided on Friday to take an approach that has no

empirical basis. Vermont uses pupil weighting to determine

and address funding for student needs across the state. We

now know, thanks to a study conducted by the University of

Vermont and Rutgers University, that our pupil weighting

formula is unequivocally wrong and has been punishing

struggling school districts for over 20 years. CVTSE is advocating

for correcting this formula as recommended by UVM

and Rutgers. This is a verified and data based solution to the

documented school funding inequity in Vermont. A proposal

today offered by the task force would remove English language

learners from this formula altogether, and fund them

with grants, essentially funding them as a separate system of

learners. The proposal would give districts $25,000 for one or

more English language learning students and then $5,000 for

We are extremely disappointed with the Governor’s plan on

homelessness. It does not address a large segment of the

population who is currently on the street and without housing.

It only supports the population currently utilizing the GA

Program. Folks that have no where to go, in an unforgiving

and absent housing market, are not even being afforded the

basic safety of shelter and warmth that should be offered to

every human being.

For the last 5 nights and 6 days, we have slept on the hard

granite of the State House steps, last night in 43 degree

weather and it will be even colder tonight.

We understand and heard repeated again today that the

Governor does not intend to include the population currently

experiencing on the street in his extension of the GA Motel

program. When the Biden Administration announced that they

will 100% reimburse the program, it was for the entire population

experiencing homelessness.

In the short time that we have been there we have been

subject to powerful rain that drenched our belongings and

wind, very cold weather for two nights, but people dried our

belongings and brought us more warmer clothing. That means

that we slept in multiple dry sleeping bags, and still were

extremely cold. People that Governor Scott exited to the street

did not have the good fortune of that level of extra layers or

being dry as it rained last night too. Tonight it will be 39

degrees and we will still be here.

At 50 degrees the risk of hypothermia begins, even higher

temperature if you are wet. We are very close to the time when

Vermonters freeze to death every year.

Throughout our time here, one of the people who was

meant to stay, met someone who had been exited from the

hospital in Berlin after being diagnosed with COVID. At one

point their oxygen levels dropped. The hospital told her that

she could not quarantine there and exited her to the street in

Montpelier. They did not help her get to the quarantine motel.

As a result through no fault of her own, she was out in

Montpelier, with others positive with COVID and having to

meet her needs in public spaces. When Biden announced this

program it was due to this exact risk. It is unacceptable when

we just saw our highest case count yet that the Governor not

keep this population and really our entire community safe.

Today the Governor said in his press conference that to

extend this program to folks who are right now at risk of

freezing to death is “not good for this population”. That is a

deeply concerning statement in terms of how he frames “this

population” as less deserving of warmth and safety than the

rest of us. He also said that the best option is long term housing,

but there is none and that housing will not be on line for

three to five years. So we would like Governor Scott to tell us

what until then? The Governor is failing at keeping people

words regarding the flag display.

Whether the comments were worthy of accolades or not, is

not our point. Our point is that an opportunity to remind

everyone in the City of Barre and perhaps our entire State that

we can all come together and support one another was lost.

And an opportunity for all sides to be heard was also lost.

As Veterans, we believe wholeheartedly in our representative

form of government and that everyone has a right to be

heard. In this case, we do not believe that was accomplished.

Had this motion received a second there would have been an

opportunity for open debate and discussion along with a vote.

Regardless if that vote were in favor or opposed, at least it

would have received a fair chance.

In closing, we would like to sincerely thank Mr. Brian Judd

for his efforts; and former Mayor Thom Lauzon as well as

Bryon and Charlie Atwood at DMS Machining and

Fabrication. Their combined efforts made for an outstanding

event to recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and to remember

those lost that day and in the war that followed. We would

also like to thank Mayor Lucas Herring for changing his plans

and being present with the citizens of Barre for this important

event.

Respectfully,

every English Language learning student. These amounts

have no empirical basis, yet this is the direction the task force

has indicated they will move toward. Members of our coalition

who educate English language learners have said time

and time again that they will not be helped by these grants.

These grants, known as categorical aid, will not address the

inequity that is baked into the weighting formula. English

language learners, as well as students who come from lowincome

and rural communities, deserve to be accurately

counted and their districts equitably funded. We will continue

to advocate for the only solution that has an empirical basis,

which is to correct the weighting formula as recommended by

UVM and Rutgers. Proposals that try to solve the weighting

issue by applying categorical aid are rooted in politics and

presented in an effort to appease more affluent districts.

Proposals that do not address the weighting formula will not

help Vermont’s most struggling school districts.

safe from COVID, Housing and the Overdose Crisis. People

who are dead never see the long term housing that might be

available five years from now. One person on our team spoke

to the motels and there is no capacity issue. There is simply

no reason not to do this.

The Governor is not even considering a safety plan for this

population that he exited to terrible outcomes. In fact he said

“we are still taking care of the homeless, we have not kicked

anyone out.” That is simply untrue. “I was given options, to

leave with the money or without the money” said Josh

Lisenby, “I was given no option to stay. I was absolutely

kicked out of the motel program”. This governor is exhibiting

palpable inhumanity.

It is completely inaccurate that 500 households were transitioned

to housing in the population that was kicked out, that

number includes people who were in the GA motel program.

The vast majority of Vermonters who were kicked out of the

GA Motel program are on the street now, not in permanent

housing. Shelters are full and forced to turn people away.

The Governor must fully reinstate and extend the motel

program through the winter, including the 1000 plus people

that he exited from the program and those who may become

homeless, until we can transition folks to long term housing.

We have serious concerns about an administration that has

seriously botched unemployment distribution and verap distribution

getting yet another program such as ERAP that they

can not manage efficiently online. They need to take the

proper time to put that program in place and most importantly

utilize all of the tools available to them to keep Vermonters

safe for as long as they can. This means using the federal

reimbursement for as long as Biden extends it and then doing

the same with state allocated funds. Then bring up the ERAP

program. According to their own information, there will not

be significant housing for three to five years. Also, that plan

does not include a way to get to 2200 homes.

Governor Scott has a responsibility to protect the people of

this state and that includes the population experiencing homelessness.

His plan does not do that. His plan is the floor and

leaves a huge swath of the population out. It keeps those in the

motels in a crisis mode and does not have a real feasible ability

to end homelessness.

There must be a plan to keep the folks that Scott kicked to

the street alive and safe from the cold, covid and more. It is

the bare minimum “I am human and far too many times I have

not been treated as such. Now that I know that I deserve to be

treated better, I will demand it for others.” Said Josh Lisenby

City Seeking Proposals for the Capital Area Neighborhood

Project Management RFP

The City of Montpelier is still seeking proposals from

State Investigation to Hold Public Listening Sessions

The state investigative team examining long wait times for

health services in Vermont will hold two public listening sessions

in the coming weeks.

“Hearing directly from community members is key to this

investigation,” said Ena Backus, Vermont’s Director of Health

Care Reform and the investigation lead. “We need to see the

health care system through the eyes of patients and their

families to understand how delayed care impacts the wellbeing

of people in our communities.”

In partnership with the Office of the Health Care Advocate,

invest in stocks, but I do not trust the rapacious rascals on

Wall Street.

The most upsetting thing about Wall Street evil-doers is

that they are threatening one of the most fundamental institutions

of Western Civilization: the stock market. Ever wonder

why the United States became an economic powerhouse? It is

because of centralized banking and stocks. They allow entrepreneurs

without money to find people who have money but

no big ideas.

This is the essence of positive capitalism:

the entrepreneurs build a new business and

get rich, the investors get wealthier from the

profit, and all of us get railroads, automobiles,

and Apple watches.

To Wall Street bad guys, companies are

nothing more than ticker symbols and numbers

to manipulate and exploit. And our

society has way too much tolerance for these

guys.

To this day, Mitt Romney is still a US

Senator. I shudder to admit that some people

I know have complimented him. In a more

sane society, Romney would be in a dank cell

in the Tower of London like the unrepentant

financial heretic that he is.

Bain Capital – the firm that Romney cofounded

– is viciously predatory. Bain

Capital finds productive companies that

provide good jobs and systematically destroys them.

Romney would borrow billions of dollars to buy a controlling

stake in a decent company. By doing so, Romney actually

saddled the company in the mountain of debt that HE created.

Then the company had no choice but to cut salaries and lay-off

workers to handle its new debt load. What Bain Capital does

is wrong by any moral standard.

who is essentially Mitt Romney with charisma.

he buys productive companies –

Romney-style – only to dismantle them

and sell them for scrap.

Charlie Sheen is also pretty good in the

less juicy role of Bud Fox: an ambitious

young stockbroker who gets seduced by

greedy Gekko and his dirty money.

To his credit, Oliver Stone makes it

clear that he is attacking rapacious

Romneys, not individual investors. And

Stone is critical of Bud Fox’s disgraceful

decadence; he is not stumping for socialism.

The surprising problem with “Wall

Street” is that it is too conventional. This

is not the confident Oliver Stone of the

90s, who made one explosive masterpiece

after another. And “Wall Street” isn’t nearly as fun as Martin

Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

“Wall Street” has a tacked-on love triangle that doesn’t

belong. And the final act is awkwardly edited and feels rushed.

The film should have been three-hours long, like “JFK” and

“Nixon.”

“Wall Street” is not a great movie. But it is an important

movie. There is a gigantic difference between the working

man next door becoming a millionaire on mutual funds and

the soulless pirate in Utah becoming a billionaire by destroying

companies and jobs. Our society does not teach the difference.

Oliver Stone does.

CDA Spiritual Retreat

The VT Catholic Daughters of the Americas held a fall Spiritual Retreat at Our

Lady of Angels Church in Randolph, Vermont. The free retreat was given to allow all

women to experience an opportunity to grow in their love of God, while enveloped in

the Unity and Charity of our Catholic Daughters. Deacon Gesualdo Schneider, through

a combination of music, discussion, prayer, and adoration, led us closer to “Jesus’ Family”.

Each of the three sessions focused on one member of the Holy Family – Joseph,

Mary, or Jesus. A goodwill donation raised $775 to support the K of C’s purchase of an

ultrasound machine for a mobile clinic in the Burlington area. A wonderful lunch was

prepared by our Treasurer, Dale Mount.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

Mars, your ruling planet, begins a

journey that will open up a growing

number of possibilities. Put

that surging Arian energy to good

use and explore it to your heart’s content.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a

career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get

those proposals in shape. And don’t forget to buff up that Bovine

self-confidence.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide

you to the right people who might be able to help you get over

that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to

make changes.

CANCER ( June 21 to July 22) You’re getting closer, but you

still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to

stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted

Moon Child.

LEO ( July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping

you from getting to the source of a disturbing situation.

Don’t be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information

is power.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) It’s a good time to shake

up your tidy little world by doing something spontaneous, like

taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) This is a good week to

get advice on your plans. But don’t act on them until you feel

sure that you’ve been told everything you need to know to support

your move.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful. You might

be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find

singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge

at a later time.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good

week to make new friends and to look for new career challenges.

But first, get all those unfinished tasks wrapped up and out

of the way.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships

need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential

problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month

draws to a close.

AQUARIUS ( January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor relationships,

whether platonic, professional or personal. On another

note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra

money very soon.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right

time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest.

You’ll impress some very important people with what you can

do.

BORN THIS WEEK: You are impelled by a need to find truth,

no matter how elusive. You would make a wonderful research

scientist or an intrepid detective.

Bury The Needle Features

Jim Miller’s ‘R-U Scared’

As part of the Barre

Halloween effort on Saturday

November 30th

from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

in front of Bury The

Needle on Main Street

in downtown Barre, Jim

Miller’s spookified CD

“R U Scared” will be

playing.

The production features

over 70 minutes of

eerie music and sounds.

It was produced over

20 years ago and with the help of his then

10-year-old son Max to pick out the scariest

tracks that he could find.

Miller has had fun with “R U Scared” every

Halloween. This is the first year for Bury

The Needle to be the sponsor. It’s been played

at many music stores, party

stores and of all places a

pumpkin stand in Middlesex.

It was a big hit at a party in

Burlington, that played it all

day.

“It has proven the test

of time,” said Miller. “R-U

Scared” and parts of it have

been heard in many local

stage productions.

In 1985 Jim Miller released

his first music video

called “Rock ‘n Roll Town”

and at the same time started producing and

promoting other area music.

While trick and treating in downtown Barre

Saturday afternoon from 1:00 to 2:00 stop by

Bury The Needle and listen to some really

scary music.

Keep Halloween More Fun and Less Scary for Little Ones

Melissa Ruiz

Even with all of its macabre origins, Halloween has

become a beloved autumn tradition all over the world for the

young and young-at-heart.

However, because it so prominently features the things that

go bump in the night, some aspects of the holiday can be too

much for little ones.

“Preschool children and those in early elementary school

often have a difficult time with Halloween,” says Theresa

Kruczek, a counseling psychology professor at Ball State

University. “Children this age often struggle with separating

fantasy from reality and as a result they may get confused and

think the scary elements of Halloween are real.”

Many people enjoy making horror movies, haunted houses

and theme parks and other gruesome pastimes a part of their

All Hallow’s Eve traditions, including people with young

children. But as careful as most adults try to be when it comes

to what their children see, now and then a child may be caught

by surprise, even by something seemingly harmless to a more

experienced celebrator.

And these surprise frights may not only bother a child in

that moment, but they could haunt him or her for a good several

nights or so.

“After a frightening experience, children may have nightmares.”

says Kruczek. “They really can’t tell us too much

about the dream, but we can take some precautions ... ”

Kruczek recommends that parents who find themselves

with children suddenly seeing monsters in their dreams, or

even their closets to arm themselves with “anti-monster

spray.” This concoction can range from a simple can of storebought

air freshener to a homemade essential oil blend. As

long as it smells delightful, it will get the job done.

“Monsters don’t like nice-smelling stuff,” explains

Kruczek.

To prevent little ones from becoming overwhelmed,

Kruczek also advises small doses for small children when it

comes to all things Halloween.

Toddlers and preschoolers should be limited to 30 minutes

or less of Halloween activities, including trick-or-treating,

and should only participate in activities during daylight hours.

These young ones should also only participate in activities

suitable for their age level or individual threshold for spooky

things.

It is helpful to ask any masked friends or strangers to lift

their disguises for little monsters to see that there is a friendly

person under the costume.

For children who already have an established fear going

into the holiday (such as spiders, ghosts, etc), or who have

become afraid of something they have seen as a result of

Halloween decorations, etc., the Child Mind Institute offers

some advice on how to talk a child through his or her fears.

First, help the child talk about what is frightening him or

her. Children don’t always know how to best articulate what

it is that is scaring them, so asking specific questions can help

parents get to the bottom of things. For example, if a child has

found him or herself with a fear of witches, a parent can ask,

“What makes witches scary?” “Did a witch surprise you?”

Once a parent decodes what exactly the child is afraid of,

letting him or her know that the fear is being taken seriously

is the next step in helping him or her to overcome it. Instead

of telling the child outright that there’s no reason to be afraid

of something, it helps to validate the fear and then move on

quickly.

“We don’t want to dwell on offering comfort around the

scary thing, because even that can become reinforcing and

take on a life of its own,” says Dr. Rachel Busman, clinical

psychologist at Child Mind Institute.

Parents are encouraged to then talk to their child about how

they will work together to help him or her start feeling braver

and to get to the point where he or she will be able to manage

the fear independently.

Parents should work with their children to make a plan in

overcoming their fear by setting reasonable goals for children

to meet until little by little they are able to deal with the thing

that is scaring them.

Finally, parents should be patient and offer encouragement.

Facing a new fear takes time, especially for a small child with

such little life experience. By offering consistent encouragement,

parents can show their children that they are not alone

and that overcoming their fear is possible.

Halloween is full of frights and fun, and now armed with

anti-monster spray and a scare-conquering plan, even the littlest

ghouls can enjoy the festivities without fear.

By M. Kathleen Shaw DVM

Vermont Veterinary Medical Association

Since the beginning of the pandemic, pet owners have

noticed that it is taking longer to get appointments at their

veterinarians for well visits, surgeries, and even urgent cases.

Appointments that could usually have been scheduled in a

week now have to wait for two or more at times. What in the

world is going on?

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association,

although many people adopted new pets during the CoVID

pandemic in 2020, the number was actually at a 5-year low.

However, there were enough new pets combined with the

demand back log for existing clients that has driven the

demand for veterinary services.

When the pandemic first hit, many clinics closed, or saw

only emergencies in the spring of 2020. This created a logjam

in demand for services. As front-line workers, practices had

to adopt changes related to deep cleaning after every appointment,

transitioning to curbside care, and often, splitting the

staff into rotating teams which contributed to scheduling and

efficiency challenges. All of this takes extra time, so veterinarians

were not able to see as many appointments in a day.

Add to that trying to help see other clinics’ urgent cases when

• • •

PET CARE CORNER | THE WORLD

Why the Delay in Veterinary Care?

they were not open and the emergency clinics were overwhelmed,

and it means a longer wait for clients.

Before the rapid test, if an employee had or was suspected

to have been exposed to CoVID, they had to stay home for

several days at the direction of the state and national medical

advisors while awaiting results. In fact, many clinics are still

seeing cases of CoVID which makes them even more short

staffed. This, a higher work load, and less efficiency has led

to increased stress levels experienced by veterinarians and

support staff. This in turn leads to compassion fatigue, burn

out and high levels of staff turnover in both general practice

and emergency practices. The veterinary profession is facing

staff shortages, just like many other businesses and in our

profession, there is significant training that needs to be undertaken

to be a receptionist, technician, or assistant.

We understand the frustration of not always being able to

have your pet seen immediately, and veterinarians are working

extra hard to try to meet the increased demand and continue

to provide the best care for your pets. We truly want to

help you and your pets: it is just that we can only do so much

with the limited doctors and support staff that we have. Your

patience and kindness during these busy times is much appreciated.

Please understand that when you call, the receptionists

and other support staff care deeply about your pet and want to

help you. It is not a matter of ‘squeezing you in’ where they

can—there are often literally no more slots for the doctors to

do this and there are limited human resources.

So, what can you do to help out? First of all, plan your

yearly exams or new animal exams well in advance. Keep

your pets on the recommended flea and tick and heartworm

preventative to help eliminate these parasite infestations and

the associated skin and tick diseases associated with them.

When you see you are getting low on a medication that your

pet needs every day, call at least 3 days in advance, to give the

clinic time to get the refill ready. If you have concerns about

your pet, call us as soon as possible as it may take time to get

an appointment scheduled. If your pet gets better before the

appointment please call us as soon as possible to cancel the

appointment: so that the appointment time can be used for

another animal. Be aware that the animal emergency clinics,

just as human ERs will triage patients and the critical cases

will get priority.

We are all in this together and we thank you for your

patience and kindness while we continue to work to provide

you and your pets with the best medical care.

New Report Details Forest and Wood Product

Contributions to Vermont’s Economy

A new report finds that Vermont’s vibrant

forest economy directly employs over 9,100

people and has $1.4 billion in sales. Total

contributions from the sector support nearly

14,000 jobs, with labor income over $500

million, and $2.1 billion in sales.

These are the findings of a 2020 report

prepared by Public Sector Consultants of

Lansing, Michigan, as part of an analysis of

the economic contributions of the forest products

businesses in the twenty states that make

up the Northeast-Midwest State Foresters

Alliance. The project was supported by a

USDA Forest Service Landscape Scale

Restoration Grant and used 2017 data for 32

industry sectors summarized in seven industry

groups.

“Vermonters instinctively understand the

value of our forest economy – whether it’s

while eating at the kitchen table, investing in

locally milled clapboards for a new home, or

the wood we put in the stove. This report does

the essential job of quantifying that value, and

no surprise, the numbers are impressive,” said

FPR Commissioner and Vermont State

Forester, Michael Snyder.

Vermont is 76% forested with 4.5 million

acres of forest land, most of which can produce

commercial timber.

The report also found Vermont’s forest and

wood products sector:

• Provided more direct labor income, valueadded

production, and output than agricultural

production industries (a sector with

many similarities),

• Accounted for 12% of Vermont’s direct

manufacturing jobs and 5.7% of non-food

manufacturing jobs,

• Contributed to a regional forest economy

(Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts

and Maine) which included 95,500 workers

and accounted for almost $27 billion in

direct sales.

The details of each group’s economic contributions

and the methodology of the analysis

are provided in the full report Forest &

results is available in Vermont’s fact sheet.

Chris Herrick Appointed Department

of Fish and Wildlife Commissioner

Governor Phil Scott announced the

appointment of Chris Herrick as the commissioner

of the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Herrick will lead the department responsible

for the management and conservation of fish,

wildlife and their habitats.

For the last five years, Chris has served as

deputy commissioner at the Department of

Public Safety (DPS) and prior to that he

served two and a half years as director of

Vermont Emergency Management within

DPS.

“Chris has demonstrated strong leadership

within state government, including through

the pandemic, and has a wealth of knowledge

that will benefit the Department,” said

Governor Phil Scott. “He will serve the state

well in this new role and contribute to our

already successful, science-based management

and conservation of wildlife, land and

waters.”

As Deputy Commissioner, Herrick has

been responsible for many aspects of DPS

operations and management and has played a

significant role in policy development and

legislative affairs. Additionally, over the last

20 months, Herrick has been responsible for

the coordination and deployment of COVID-

19 testing supplies, the development and

decommissioning of the MEDSURGE sites,

and has served as an incident manager for the

State Emergency Operations Center.

“Chris will be a great addition to the

Agency’s leadership team and the important

work of stewarding Vermont’s natural

resources for the benefit of all Vermonters,”

said Agency of Natural Resources Secretary

Julie Moore. “As an avid outdoorsman, I look

forward to Chris bringing together his personal

interests with his knowledge of state

government and clear commitment to state

service.”

Herrick has worked for DPS for 22 years in

multiple roles and with increasing responsibility.

Notably, he served as the first chief of

the HAZMAT Team in 1999, which was created

to work with fire chiefs before, during

and after hazardous material events in their

communities. Herrick’s community service

includes 30 years as a volunteer firefighter

with five years as Chief of South Hero

Volunteer Fire Department, a certified EMT

for 25 years, and he has served as chair for

both the select board and school board. He

completed his undergraduate at St. Michaels

College and earned his master’s degree from

the University of Vermont. In his free time, he

enjoys outdoor activities, ranging from kayaking

to fly fishing, hunting, mountain biking,

skiing, snowshoeing and hiking with his dog

Lucy.

Herrick will start his new role November 8,

replacing Louis Porter who previously

announced he would step down at the end of

October.

Vermont Fish and Wildlife and Vermont

Institute of Natural Science Partner to

Rehabilitate and Release Adult Bald Eagle

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department

and Vermont Institute of Natural Science

(VINS) are pleased to announce the successful

rehabilitation and release of an adult bald

eagle in Berlin on October 20.

Listed as a state endangered species in

1987, Vermont’s bald eagle population has

thrived in recent years thanks to efforts by the

Fish and Wildlife Department and partners.

The department has recommended bald

eagles for de-listing but will continue to carefully

monitor their population.

“Bald eagles have made an impressive

comeback in Vermont, meeting the criteria for

de-listing under the state endangered species

act,” says Fish and Wildlife’s Migratory Bird

Biologist Doug Morin. “But because bald

eagles are a long-lived species with slow

reproduction, each released bird has potential

Vermont’s Trapping Season Started

October 23rd, Keep Your Pets Safe

Trapping season starts on the 4th Saturday

of October each year in Vermont and runs

through March 31st. Each trapping season,

dogs, cats, and other non-targeted animals,

including protected species, are injured or

killed in traps. According to public records

obtained by Protect Our Wildlife (POW), a

dog was trapped in a leghold trap set for coyotes

during the first week of trapping season

last year. Some of the other non-targeted

captures that were voluntarily reported last

year include a barred owl, a great blue heron,

and a Canada goose. Vermont Fish & Wildlife

does not require trappers to report when they

trap a non-targeted wild animal.

Traps may be set on private land—with

permission—and public land, including

National Wildlife Refuges, home to federally

protected species including Canada lynx.

Trappers are not required to post signs as to

where they’re trapping, nor are they required

to set their traps away from public hiking

trails. Baits and lures are used with traps, so a

trap set for a coyote can just as likely trap a

curious dog or cat or even a bald eagle. The

two trap types that pose the greatest risk to

dogs and cats are leghold and Conibear

“kill” traps. “I am a veterinarian who has

treated dogs and cats caught in traps and the

injuries they suffered were horrendous,” said

Dr. Peggy Larson, retired Vermont veterinarian.

POW’s website offers a video tutorial

with instructions on how to release a companion

animal from a leghold and Conibear

trap. If an animal is caught in a Conibear

to contribute to maintaining the healthy population

that the department and our partners

have worked to restore.”

Fish and Wildlife staff were notified of the

injured eagle by a Berlin landowner in late

July. State Game Warden Paul Brown located

the bird and brought it to VINS for care.

VINS Director of Wild Bird Rehabilitation

Grae O’Toole reports that the eagle received

89 days of care before being deemed ready to

release.

Opportunities to bolster Vermont’s bald

eagle population through rescue and rehabilitation

are uncommon. The release is only the

second such collaborative opportunity for the

department and VINS since 2019. With

department and VINS staff present, the

release occurred without incident on the property

where the eagle was first reported.

trap, its survival is less likely. “These traps

are designed to kill animals like fisher, beavers,

and otters by crushing the neck with 90

pounds of pressure per square inch,” said

Brenna Galdenzi, POW President. POW has

documentation of non-targeted animals

caught in Conibear traps including turtles,

dogs, cats, and coyotes. Photos depict the

traps crushing the animals’ heads and torsos,

indicating tremendous suffering. “It’s hard to

believe that these gruesome instruments of

torture are still being used in Vermont, despite

the fact that the majority of Vermonters

polled in 2017 by the University of Vermont’s

Center for Rural Studies, want to ban trapping

completely,” Galdenzi added.

Quick Tips

• Know when trapping season is, but remember

that traps set out of season, as allowed

per Vermont’s “wild animals doing damage”

statute, or traps left behind after the season

ends, still present a threat.

• Remember that kill traps can be set in shallow

water, in rivers and streams so always

check the area before allowing your dog to

swim.

• Keep cats indoors or create a cat-proof

fenced-in yard.

“While we cannot protect bobcats, foxes,

otters, and other wildlife from leghold and

body crushing kill traps, we can try and protect

our pets,” said Dr. Larson.

Vermont Hunters and Anglers

Help Pay for Fish &

Wildlife Conservation

The healthy and abundant fish and wildlife populations we all enjoy

in Vermont today are a direct result of hunters and anglers helping

to provide funding for wildlife restoration, wildlife management, and

wildlife law enforcement.

Funds generated through

licenses, permit fees and federal

excise taxes on hunting, shooting

sports, fi shing products, and

motorboat fuels have been used

to restore many of the species

we take for granted.

White-tailed deer were

introduced to Vermont in 1878

by a precursor to the Vermont

Federation of Sportsmens Clubs.

Beavers were reintroduced by

the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department

in the 1920s and 30s

and subsequently live-trapped

and transferred around the state.

Fishers were transported from

Maine to Vermont in the 1950s

and 60s. Canada geese were

pinioned at Dead Creek Wildlife

Management Area in 1956 to

establish a successful resident

population that exists statewide.

Nest boxes for wood ducks have

helped to bring their numbers

back from an extreme low.

Turkey restoration began in 1969

and continued until the early

1990s, and American marten

were reintroduced from Maine

and New York in 1989.

In 2005, the peregrine falcon,

osprey and common loon were

removed from the state’s threatened

and endangered species list

as a result of restorations efforts.

Current restoration efforts

include moose, lake sturgeon,

muskellunge, Canada lynx, bald

eagles, American marten, walleye,

eastern timber rattlesnake, spiny

softshell turtle to name just a

few.

Wildlife habitat conservation is

also a priority. In last 100 years,

100 Wildlife Management Areas

have been purchased, resulting

in 135,000 acres of protected

wildlife habitat. More than 2,400

acres of land with 1,480

acres of restorable wetland

habitats have been

conserved through the

EPA’s Agency’s Wetland

Conservation and Restoration

Program.

Hunters and anglers

contirbute to funding by

purchasing licenses, permit

fees and excise taxes on

hunting shooting sports,

fishing products and

motorboat fuel.

PET OF THE WEEK

FRESCA is a beautiful girl who

came to CVHS as a stray who lost

her way. She enjoys petting and a

great place to catnap in. She would

prefer a home that is tranquil and

free of any young children or a bossy

cat. With proper introduction we feel

she could do okay with a canine,

older child or cat-savvy feline.

All adoptions are done by a phone

appointment only (no one is allowed

in the building). Contact an adoption

* Baby have diaper rash? One of the best remedies is “air

time” -- that is, letting baby go without a diaper for a bit.

Another simple soother is a baking soda bath. Try adding

2-4 tablespoons of baking soda to Junior’s bathwater.

* Use this tip to vacuum seal your meat for the freezer

without any special equipment! Add meat pieces to a plastic,

zipper-top bag. Fill a large pot several inches deep with

water. Seal all but an inch or so of the bag. As you lower the

bag into the water (zipper top up) the air will escape

through the unsealed portion. When no air remains, seal

the bag and then remove from the water.

* “Have you tried this single-serving blender hack using a

mason jar? Many standard-size blender blades can be

screwed on to a pint Mason jar. If you’re one of the lucky

ones, you can make single servings of smoothies to blend

and go.” -- T.U. in South Carolina

* “Apply petroleum jelly to the panes of your windows

before painting the trim. This works better than masking

tape in many ways. It is easily removed, and even large paint

flecks come right off.” -- P.S. in Illinois

* After you’ve cooked your chicken whole, remove the

meat and throw the bones and remaining carcass in the

slow cooker with 3-4 cups of water. Let it cook on low for

several hours for a spectacularly flavorful broth.

The Average Timelines For Popular Renovation Projects

Home renovation projects are significant undertakings.

Working with skilled and experienced contractors can ensure

projects go smoothly and are completed promptly. Timing is a

big consideration for homeowners as they begin renovating their

homes, and the home improvement experts at HomeAdvisor note

that the following are some general timelines for popular renovation

projects.

• Home addition: Short of a full-scale demolition and rebuild,

home additions are the most time-consuming projects homeowners

can undertake. HomeAdvisor notes that its survey of customers

who recently completed home addition projects reported that

the average time from start to finish was between three and four

months. Certain variables, including the scale of the project and

the local permits process, can extend the time it takes to complete

a home addition.

• Kitchen remodel: Scale is a big factor to consider when

estimating the time it takes to complete various home improvement

projects, and kitchen remodels are no exception. Some

HomeAdvisor users reported projects taking as long as four

months, though the average time reported was roughly six

weeks. Projects that require major overhauls like rearranging the

plumbing and moving walls will likely take longer than more

cosmetic projects that are limited to replacing cabinets and countertops.

• Bathroom remodel: More than 1,000 homeowners surveyed

by HomeAdvisor reported that bathroom remodels took about

4.5 weeks from start to finish. Small-scale remodels that focus

on painting the walls a fresh color and replacing existing tiles

can be completed in less than two weeks. But like with kitchen

remodels, bathroom remodels that involve replacing plumbing

fixtures and removing walls figure to take much longer than that.

• Siding installation: HomeAdvisor users report that new siding

projects take roughly two weeks from start to finish. That

estimate is the same regardless of which materials homeowners

are replacing and installing.

• Replacement windows: Homeowners who want to replace

all the windows in their home can expect such a project to take

roughly three weeks. HomeAdvisor notes that such a timeline

need not concern homeowners worried that they will be forced

to brave the elements during the length of the project. Much of a

contractors’ time during a window replacement project will be

spent on upfront measuring and then ensuring a tight fit once the

windows have been installed.

Tire Maintenance Keeps Drivers Safe

Maintaining tires is an important component

of safe driving. Tires are some of the

hardest working parts on a car or truck and

are subjected to wear and tear every time rubber

meets the road.

Tires affect many components of driving,

including handling, braking and the comfort

of the ride. Maintaining tires makes driving

safe not only for drivers and their passengers,

but also for fellow motorists.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

says that, in 2017, 738 fatalities

occurred because of tire-related crashes.

Many of those crashes were no doubt preventable,

and that only highlights the importance

of maintaining tires and monitoring their performance.

Poor tire maintenance can lead to premature

wear and potentially result in a blowout.

The automotive group AAA notes it is important

to visually inspect tires as often as possible.

Drivers should look for overall tread

wear. Pay special attention to tread wear on

one edge of the tires, which could indicate

poor alignment. Erratic tread wear may mean

tires are out of balance.

Drivers also should pay attention to how

their cars drive and sounds. Unusual vibration

or thumping noises suggest issues with

the tires. A car that pulls in one direction also

may be experiencing tire problems.

Vehicle owners should be aware of the routine

maintenance steps that can keep them

safe and improve the life expectancy of tires.

Tire pressure: The NHTSA says only 19

percent of consumers properly check and

inate their tires. Keeping tires properly in-

ated is one of the most important steps to

maintaining them. Tires lose around 1 psi per

month, and underinated or overinated tires

can contribute to unusual wear, blowouts and

even excessive fuel consumption.

• Rotation: Check the owner’s manual or

recommendations from the tire manufacturer,

but know that most mechanics advise having

tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Rotation

helps distribute wear more evenly on

tires.

Balancing: AAA says balancing also helps

minimize uneven wear and tear. Balanced

tires are achieved by using small weights attached

to the wheels to limit vibration of the

tire and wheels as they turn. New tires should

be balanced, and tires also should be balanced

after one or more is removed to repair a puncture.

Alignment: Vehicles have wheel alignment

measurements that pertain to manufacturers’

specifications. Alignment that falls

outside of the range can impact handling, fuel

economy and tread wear. A drift or pull suggests

alignment problems and should be addressed.

Vehicle owners should keep tire inspection

and maintenance in mind as part of their overall

car care plan.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way

people live. One readily felt effect was spending

more time at home. Vehicles sat idle in

driveways and even some automotive insurance

providers reduced rates because people

were driving much less.

Even with stay-at-home measures in place,

people still need to leave their homes to stock

up on essentials, such as food or medicine. In

other cases, people may have been essential

workers who drive for a living, including delivery

drivers or health care personnel who

were incapable of working from home.

Any time a person goes out in public, he or

she runs the risk of contracting viruses. Bacteria

and germs may reside on various surfaces,

including those inside vehicles.

People want to protect themselves and now

are more aware of the importance of frequently

cleaning and sanitizing their cars. Keeping

a vehicle safe to drive without affecting its

upholstery or electronic components is paramount.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

makes a distinction between cleaning

and disinfecting. Cleaning refers to the

removal of germs, dirt and impurities from

surfaces. It does not kill germs, but can lower

their numbers. Disinfecting refers to using

chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. The following

are some ways to deeply clean and

sanitize a car.

• Wash hands. First and foremost, it is crucial

to wash your hands before and after using

the car. This can reduce the likelihood of

growing ill because of transferred viruses or

bacteria.

Use rubbing alcohol. Solutions that contain

70 percent alcohol are effective against

many viruses and bacteria, including coronaviruses,

says the CDC. Furthermore, Jeff

Stout, Executive Director of Global Innovation

at Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, says

that, for the most part, nearly every interior

surface of a vehicle can be cleaned with isopropyl

alcohol. Plastic to painted chrome to

imitation leather have been tested to ensure

they don’t degrade when exposed to pure isopropyl

alcohol.

Avoid bleach or hydrogen peroxide.

While bleach and peroxide are very effective

cleaners and sanitizers, they are likely to damage

a car’s upholstery, according to Consumer

Reports.

• Use soap and water: Experts say that vigorous

washing with a soap-and-water solution

can be effective against many contaminants

because it breaks down the protective envelope

that surrounds coronaviruses and other

germs to disarm them. Friction also can help

to break down germ cells during cleaning.

“You want to do the best with what you

have, so even soap and water can chip away at

the risk,” says Stephen Thomas, M.D., Chief

of Infectious Diseases and Director of Global

Health at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse,

NY.

Address frequently touched surfaces. Pay

attention to the steering wheel, door handles,

buttons, touchscreen displays, shift lever, and

more when sanitizing. Each of these items can

harbor germs.

Deep-cleaning a vehicle has become a necessity

since COVID-19 emerged. Frequently

cleaning and sanitizing can help make vehicles

safer to operate.
