VBSR Honors Cindy Turcot with Terry Ehrich Award

for Lifetime Achievement

Cindy Turcot, CEO and President of

Gardener’s Supply Company, has received

the 2021 Terry Ehrich Award for Lifetime

Achievement at the Vermont Businesses for

Social Responsibility (VBSR) 20th Annual

VBSR Awards Ceremony on Tuesday evening.

Turcot received the award in recognition

of her dedication to the company’s innovative

management style and her commitment

and furtherance of employee ownership.

“I always had this passion for employee

ownership,” Turcot said. “And I believe in the

model because I really do believe that we

need to push wealth down. As our world

becomes wealthier at the top, how do we push

a model that can help all of us have more

wealth? Employee ownership does that.”

The Terry Ehrich Award for Lifetime

Achievement honors individuals who demonstrate

an extraordinary commitment to

Vermont’s communities, environment, progressive

policies, and workplaces. The award

is named for Terry Ehrich, late owner of

Hemmings Motor News and a founding

member of VBSR’s Board of Directors.

Ehrich was the first to receive the award in

2002.

Turcot started her career doing data entry

for Gardener’s in 1983. She has since served

the company as Chief Operating Officer and

community in many ways,” said VAR’s Chief

Executive Officer, Kathy Sweeten. “During

one of the most challenging periods in recent

history, Claudia spearheaded a campaign that

raised much-needed funds for food banks in

her community. She leads by example in

every aspect of her career and volunteer

work.”

In 2020, Claudia chaired the SCVBR fundraising

program. During the pandemic, when

the services of Vermont’s food banks were in

high demand, Claudia spearheaded the largest

fundraising event in SCVBR’s history, raising

over $18,000 for local food banks.

Claudia serves on the board of directors for

the Vermont Association of Realtors and is a

past president of SCVBR. Claudia was recognized

this year as SCVBR’s Good Neighbor

recipient and is also a past recipient of the

board’s Realtor of the Year Award.

Chief Financial Officer, and today she serves

as CEO and President. In 1987, she took a

leading role in transitioning Gardener’s supply

into an employee-owned company

through the adoption of an Employee Stock

Ownership Plan (ESOP). Today, the company

is 100% employee-owned.

“As I saw the power of employee ownership

expand at Gardener’s Supply, I became

passionate about what it meant for wealth

equality and the everyday worker,” Turcot

said.

Turcot is known nationally for her commitment

to employee ownership and wealth

equality. She is a former Chair of the national

ESOP Association and the current

Chairwoman of the Employee Ownership

Foundation.

“The Vermont Employee Ownership

Center (VEOC) was the kickoff to my leadership

for employee owners,” said Turcot, who

served as founding chair of VEOC’s board of

directors in 2001.

“Cindy’s decades of volunteer service to

the VEOC has been instrumental in our success

in becoming a leading employee ownership

center in the country, and for spreading

employee ownership to many Vermont companies,”

said Matt Cropp, executive director

of VEOC.

financial moes necessary to ee maing

progress toward your long-term goals.

Here’s some background: After a year in

which the pandemic caused so many people

to lose their jobs, the economy is opening

back up, but the “quit rate” – the number of

jobs people have voluntarily left – has been

breaking records. Some economists say this

high uit rate is because eole are confident

of getting better jobs, with higher pay and

more eibility to wor at home, or because

they are preparing to start their own business

or join the gig economy.

If you’re thinking of joining this temporary

migration from the workforce, how can you

hel ensure that youll be financially stable

and can continue to make progress toward

your long-term goals?

our first moe is to loo clearly at your

financial situation. s mentioned aboe, its

best to have new employment in hand before

you quit your job. Alternatively, perhaps

you have a spouse or life partner who earns

enough to sustain the two of you, or you’ve

built up an emergency fund that gives you a

cushion.

However, if your short-term income is less

than you previously earned or you need to go

without a paycheck for a while, could you still

pay your bills? If you are strapped for cash,

you might be tempted to tap into your 401(k)

or other employer-sponsored retirement plan.

ut this moe will generally result in taes

and, if you are younger than 59 ½, a 10 percent

penalty as well. Because of this, and because

your retirement accounts are designed

to be a financial resource after you retire,

think twice before dipping into these funds if

you leave your current employer.

If your employer allows it, you can leave

your money in the 401(k) so you’ll still be

accumulating resources for retirement. You

also have the option to roll those funds into an

individual retirement account (IRA) or a new

employer’s retirement plan.

And if you plan to work for yourself as

a freelancer, consultant or business owner,

you’ll still want to save toward retirement.

Possible retirement plans for the self-employed

include an “owner-only” 401(k), a

SEP-IRA or a SIMPLE IRA, all of which

may be relatively easy to establish and offer

ta benefits. financial adisor can hel you

find a retirement lan thats aroriate for

your needs.

Here’s something else to keep in mind – an

emergency fund. As mentioned above, if you

already have one, you’ll have some breathing

room if you’re thinking of leaving your job

and might have a temporary gap in income.

But as the name suggests, an emergency fund

is there to hel coer uneected costs, such

as a major home repair, without forcing you to

take out a loan, or cash out part of your longer-term

investments. So, if you are planning

to tap your emergency fund, work to restock

it as soon as possible.

If you’re participating in the “Great Resignation,”

it means you’re feeling positive

about your future employment prospects,

which is great. But you’ll want to support that

otimism with a strong financial foundation.

Vermont Minimum Wage to

Increase In 2022

The Vermont Department of Labor has announced an

increase to the state’s minimum wage. Beginning January 1,

2022, the state’s minimum wage will become $12.55 per hour.

This is an increase of $0.80 from the current minimum wage

of $11.75.

This annual adjustment also impacts the minimum wage for

tipped employees. The Basic Tipped Wage Rate for service, or

“tipped employees,” equals 50% of the full minimum wage.

On January 1, 2022, the tipped minimum wage will increase

from $5.88 to $6.28 per hour.

The minimum wage and tipped minimum wage are adjusted

annually in accordance with Vermont law and take effect at

the start of the new year. Any employee who believes they are

not being compensated fairly, according to this law, is encouraged

to contact the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour

Unit at 802-951-4083 or online at Labor.Vermont.gov/Rightsand-Wages.

Additional information on the Vermont Department of

Labor and its resources may be found at Labor.Vermont.gov.

Another Problem With Daylight Saving Time:

It Raises Your Risk of

Hitting Deer on the Road

By CompassVermont.com

Daylight saving time ends in the U.S. and

Canada on Nov. 7, 2021, and most of us will

be setting our clocks back an hour. There is a

long-running debate about the benefit of the

time change, given how it disrupts humans’

circadian rhythms, causing short-term stress

and fatigue.

Another risk accompanying the time

change is on the roads: As more people drive

at dusk during an active time of year for deer,

the number of deer-vehicle accidents rises.

Deer cause over 1 million motor vehicle

accidents in the U.S. each year, resulting in

more than $1 billion in property damage,

about 200 human deaths and 29,000 serious

injuries. Property damage insurance claims

average around $2,600 per accident, and the

overall average cost, including severe injuries

or death, is over $6,000.

While avoiding deer – as well as moose,

elk and other hoofed animals, known as ungulates

– can seem impossible if you’re driving

in rural areas, there are certain times and

places that are most hazardous, and so warrant

extra caution.

Transportation agencies, working with scientists,

have been developing ways to predict

where deer and other ungulates enter roads so

they can post warning signs or install fencing

or wildlife passages under or over the roadway.

Just as important is knowing when these

accidents occur.

My former students Victor Colino-Rabanal,

Nimanthi Abeyrathna and I have analyzed

over 86,000 deer-vehicle collisions

involving white-tailed deer in New York state

using police records over a three-year period.

Here’s what our research and other studies

show about timing and risk.

Time of day, month and year matters

The risk of hitting a deer varies by time of

day, day of the week, the monthly lunar cycle

and seasons of the year.

These accident cycles are partly a function

of driver behavior – they are highest

when traffic is heay, driers are least alert

and driving conditions are poorest for spotting

animals. They are also affected by deer

behavior. Not infrequently, deer-vehicle accidents

involve multiple vehicles, as startled

drivers swerve to miss a deer and collide with

a vehicle in another lane, or they slam on the

breaks and are rear-ended by the vehicle behind.

In analyzing thousands of deer-vehicle collisions,

we found that these accidents occur

most frequently at dusk and dawn, when deer

are most active and drivers’ ability to spot

them is poorest. Only about 20% of accidents

occur during daylight hours. Deer-vehicle

accidents are eight times more frequent per

hour of dusk than daylight, and four times

more frequent at dusk than after nightfall.

During the week, accidents occur most

frequently on days that have the most drivers

on the road at dawn or dusk, so they are

associated with work commuter driving patterns

and social factors such as Friday “date

night traffic.

Over the span of a month, the most deervehicle

accidents occur during the full moon,

and at the time of night that the moon is

brightest. Deer move greater distances from

cover and are more likely to enter roadways

when there is more illumination at night. The

pattern holds for deer and other ungulates in

both North America and Europe.

Over a year, by far the highest numbers

of deer-vehicle accidents are in autumn, and

particularly during the rut, when bucks search

and compete to mate with does. In New York

state, the peak number of deer-vehicle accidents

occurs in the last week of October and

first wees of oember. here are oer four

times as many deer-vehicle accidents during

that period as during spring. Moose-vehicle

accidents show a similar pattern.

The problem with daylight saving time

We have also found that the daylight saving

time clock shift of one hour affects the

number of deer-vehicle accidents.

In spring, when deer-vehicle accidents are

at an annual low, the start of daylight saving

time means a later sunrise and sunset. It results

in a small decrease in deer-vehicle accidents.

However, in fall, when deer-vehicle

accidents are at an annual high because of

deer rut, the earlier sunrise and sunset cause a

significant increase in deer-ehicle accidents.

The clock shift results in more commuters

on the road during the high-risk dusk

hours. The consequence is more cars driving

at the peak time of day and during the peak

time of the year for deer-vehicle accidents.

The clock shift results in a 37% reduction in

deer-vehicle accidents during morning commuter

hours, since fewer commuters are on

the road before sunrise, but a 72% increase

in accidents during evening commuter hours.

Overall, there is a 19% increase in accidents

during commuter hours the week after the fall

time change in New York.

Deer still cross roads at any time

It’s important to remember that deer-vehicle

accidents can occur at any time of day or

night, on any day of the year – and that deer

can show up in urban areas as well as rural

ones.

The insurance company State Farm found

that on average, U.S. drivers have a one in 116

chance of hitting an animal, with much higher

rates in states such as West Virginia, Montana

and Pennsylvania. Over the 12 months ended

in June 2020, State Farm counted 1.9 million

insurance claims for collisions with wildlife

nationwide. Around 90% of those involved

deer.

Where deer or other ungulates are likely to

be present, drivers should always be alert and

cautious, especially at dawn, dusk, on bright

moonlit nights and during the fall rut. In addition,

drivers should be aware that after the

fall time change, they may be more fatigued,

and their evening commute from work may

have shifted into the dusk hours, when risk of

hitting a deer is highest, and coinciding with

the rut, when the risk is at its annual peak.

Forest Service Targets Hunter Safety

Vermont Hunters Help Meet Moose

Population Management Goal

With high moose numbers in northeastern Vermont contributing

to the abundance and negative impact of winter ticks,

the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is pleased to report

a successful, regulated 2021 moose hunting season.

“Moose density in Vermont’s northeastern Wildlife

Management Unit—WMU E—is above one moose per square

mile,” says Nick Fortin, the department’s moose biologist.

“This high density of moose contributes to winter tick numbers

that can negatively impact moose health and survival. A

goal of this year’s hunt was to improve the overall health of

WMU E’s moose population by reducing its density.”

The department issued 100 moose hunting permits this

year, resulting in 62 moose harvested between the October 1-7

archery season and October 17-22 rifle season.

Of the 100 permits available, 94 were issued by lottery, to

which over 5,700 hunters applied. The department reserves

the first five lottery permits for Vermont military veterans.

Three non-lottery permits are reserved for youth with lifethreatening

illnesses, and three more are auctioned as a fundraiser

for conservation.

High interest in Vermont’s moose hunt is an important platform

for the department to show how science informs hunting

regulations to benefit wildlife and people.

“This was my once in a lifetime opportunity,” says hunter

Nick Burnham, who estimates that he has applied for the lottery

close to twenty times before this year’s successful application

and hunt. “We’re here to do what benefits the moose population

and also to put good, wholesome food on the table.”

This year’s harvest goals were informed by a three-year

study led by department biologists and University of Vermont

researchers. Researchers fitted 90 moose calves and 36 adult

females with GPS collars to understand the interplay between

winter ticks, moose density and overall population health in

WMU E.

The study showed that chronic high winter tick loads have

caused the health of moose in northeastern Vermont to be very

poor. Survival of adult moose remained relatively good, but

Fish & Wildlife Asks Deer Hunters

to Report Wildlife Sightings

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is asking hunters

to participate in its annual deer hunter effort and sighting

survey.

The survey asks hunters to record how many hours they

hunted and how many deer, moose, bears, or other wildlife

they saw on each day of the November regular season. This

information helps the department evaluate how hunting pressure

and the number of these animals varies throughout the

season and around the state.

The easiest way to complete the survey is to use the new

Deer Hunting Log feature in the Vermont Outdoors mobile

app. The app allows hunters to track their effort and wildlife

sightings during the regular season as well as during the

archery and muzzleloader seasons. It also offers several other

useful features for hunters, including a check station locator

tool and an online harvest reporting tool. Online reporting is

only available during the archery and muzzleloader seasons.

It is not allowed during the regular season. Vermont Outdoors

is available through the App Store or Google Play.

A web-based version of the survey is available on www.

vtfishandwildlife.com. The department also mailed survey

cards to several thousand randomly selected hunters, as it has

done each year since 1999.

“The information we get from this survey is critically

important for the management of deer and other wildlife in

Vermont,” said Nick Fortin, Fish and Wildlife’s deer and

moose project leader. “If we hear from more hunters, our

population estimates will be more reliable, and our management

will be more effective.”

With rifle season fast approaching, Forest

Service officials on the Green Mountain

National Forest (GMNF) are encouraging the

public to use caution and to be visible and

mindful of their surroundings in the coming

weeks. Saturday, November 13th marks the

opening day of the white-tailed deer rifle hunt

in Vermont, a lifelong tradition for many

Vermonters.

Through prescribed fire, timber management,

and wildlife monitoring programs, the

GMNF works year-round to enhance wildlife

habitat, including that for large and small

game. Officials want to remind hunters and

other forest users that the entire 400,000 plus

acre National Forest is open for hunting, the

only exceptions are developed trails and recreation

sites. As with any recreational opportunity

on the GMNF, all applicable state and

federal laws and regulations must be followed.

Below are some safety tips for hunters

that may be planning to hunt on the GMNF:

• Clearly identify your target before shooting

to prevent accidents or fatalities. Fire only at

clearly identified wildlife and know what is

beyond your target.

• Be alert when hunting near developed areas

and trails. Other recreationists are in the forest

as well.

• Check weather reports before visiting the

forest – dress properly and be prepared for the

worst possible conditions.

• Tell someone where you will be hunting and

when you will return – be familiar with the

area that you are hunting.

• Wear blaze orange and try to be visible from

all directions.

• Check hunting equipment before and after

each outing and maintain it properly.

Familiarize yourself with the operation of

your firearm before using it in the field.

• Carry a spare set of dry clothes. Use layering

techniques to prevent moisture retention,

while maintaining body warmth.

• Always bring waterproof gear.

• Have a first aid kit, flashlight, cell phone,

food and water in case of an emergency.

With the COVID-19 pandemic still present

in our local community hunters should be

cognizant of other forest users. The forest is

open to all other lawful uses including mountain

biking, hiking and horseback riding.

Non-hunters who plan to use the National

Forest during hunting season should also be

cognizant of hunters using the same locations

they may be utilizing. The Forest Service

recommends wearing blaze orange while

hunting seasons are running concurrent with

your visit. If recreating with household animals

such as a dog, officials suggest that they

are visible and remain on a leash.

hunting regulations, please visit: https://vtfishandwildlife.com.

The mission of the U.S. Forest Service is to

sustain the health, diversity and productivity

of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet

the needs of present and future generations.

The agency manages 193 million acres of

public land, provides assistance to state and

private landowners, and maintains the largest

forestry research organization in the world.

Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute

more than $13 billion to the economy

each year through visitor spending alone.

Those same lands provide 20 percent of the

nation’s clean water supply, a value estimated

at $7.2 billion per year. The agency has either

a direct or indirect role in stewardship of about

80 percent of the 850 million forested acres

within the U.S., of which 100 million acres are

urban forests where most Americans live. For

more information, see www.fs.fed.us.

birth rates were very low, and

less than half of the calves in

the study survived their first

winter.

“This year’s hunt in WMU

E was an important step

towards reducing moose density

in the northeast of the

state to decrease the number of

hosts for winter ticks and

achieving a healthy, sustainable

moose population,” said

Fortin.

Some Birds are Coming, Some are Going, and Some

are Passing Through Vermont; Here’s an Update

By CompassVermont.com

Here is the latest bird report from the Vermont

Fish and Wildlife Department.

As daylight hours shorten, the Yellowrumped

Warbler, the last warbler to migrate

out of state, may be found for just a few more

weeks. Meanwhile, Snow Geese continue

moving through the Champlain Valley with

reports of up to 1,000 at Dead Creek Wildlife

Management Area.

Wintering waterfowl numbers are also increasing,

and wintering songbird species have

begun to arrive.

Recent departures include Osprey, Redshouldered

Hawks, and Turkey Vultures all of

which leave by early November (and return

around March). The Yellow-rumped Warbler,

the last warbler to migrate out of state may be

found for just a few more weeks.

Meanwhile, many of the birds primarily

seen in Vermont only during migration have

either mostly or fully passed through the state,

including shorebirds (Sanderling, Greater and

Lesser Yellowlegs, and most of the Sandpipers),

waterfowl (Blue-winged teal, Northern

Shoveler), and songbirds (White-crowned

Sparrow, Rusty Blackbird).

Wintering waterfowl numbers are increasing.

esser and reater cau, ufehead,

Common Goldeneye, and other species may

be found congregating where waters remain

open in Lake Champlain. Though they are not

common in Vermont, Lesser Scaup are the

most abundant diving duck on the continent,

with a population estimated at 3.8 million individuals.

Wintering songbird species have begun

to arrive. Sightings are starting for Northern

Shrike, Horned Lark and American Tree Sparrow.

These species spend the winter here and

head north each spring to breed.

While some are regular visitors, many of

these species move in response to food availability—so

in years when food is plentiful to

the north, we may see few birds, but in years

when food is scarce, we may see lots.

Challenger Monument Rededication Ceremony

November 18th 4:00 p.m.

Montpelier Mayor Anne Watson will preside over a brief

rededication of the ‘Challenger Seven’ Memorial on Thursday

November 18th at 4 p.m. at Montpelier High School along

the bike path. The Challenger Memorial, created by Daniel

Roselli, was recently moved from an inaccessible location

near National Life where it stood for 35 years. The Memorial

is in memory of the seven astronauts who died on January

28, 1986, when NASA’s space shuttle Challenger exploded 73

seconds into its launch. he seen astronauts included the first

civilian astronaut, Christa McAuliffe, a school teacher from

New Hampshire.

The disaster was made even worse by the live TV viewing

of thousands of students and teachers from all over the country

inspired by McAuliffe, including our local science classes.

Mayor Watson is a science teacher and the memory of this

tragedy is close to her heart.

The Montpelier Public Art Commission spent the past year

on this project. From the beginning, the commission intended

that no taxpayer funds be involved in this project, particularly

when so many are financially stressed by -19. o our

tremendous appreciation, the National Life Group covered all

the costs.

Two mysteries surrounding this monument were recently

solved! The Montpelier Public Art Commission had wondered,

why did Daniel Roselli design and donate the monument? Dan

had no kids, he was not involved with the school, and he had

been working on learning his parents’ granite business, which

he would take over. Unfortunately, Daniel Roselli died of cancer

in 2004. However, one of his closest friends, Doug Zorzi,

Call for Applications Artist Development Grants

Artist Development Grants support artists at all stages of

their careers. Grants can fund activities that enhance mastery

of an artist’s craft or skills or that increase the viability of an

artist’s business. Funding may also support aspects of the creation

of new work when the activity allows the grantee to accept

a rare and important opportunity.

Eligible expenses for such activities include, but are not

limited to:

• advanced study of technique or practice with a mentor

• attending a professional conference to build business or artistic

skills or knowledge

• contracting professional services including photographic

documentation of work, contract preparation or business incorporation,

creation of accounting systems, developing e-

commerce on a website, creation of marketing materials, etc.

truly a rare kind of person who was not only deeply moved by

the disaster, but doubly moved by the added tragedy that so

many young eole witnessed it first-hand. an created the

memorial to remember all of those it impacted.

As for the second mystery? Apples! They appear every year

placed all over the monument. A local resident informed the

Commission that people still honor the memory of the astronauts

by bringing apples for the teacher. So now, the monument

sits in front of an apple tree.

Here is a brief history of the ‘Challenger Seven’ Memorial:

• Daniel Roselli designed the monument. “Danny deserves all

the credit on this. He ... got everything done,” remarked his

father.

• Daniel Roselli’s parents, Evelyn and Vic, fabricated and

funded the memorial. They owned Desilets Granite Company,

a well-known memorial manufacturer, the location of which is

now condos on Barre Street, Montpelier.

• Vic hired Ed Epstein, who still resides locally, to etch the image

of the Challenger shuttle on the memorial, which includes

two slabs of granite, one light ‘Barre Gray’ from a local quarry

and the other ndia ar, which was imorted.

• The City raised money to design and plant a small park surrounding

the memorial, which is now long gone.

• The National Life Group donated the land where it sat for 35

years and took excellent care of it.

• A well-attended dedication was held exactly 35 years ago

in the fall of 1986, which included local school children and

Statement from Governor Phil Scott on COVID-19 In Vermont

oernor hil cott issued the following statement

Throughout the pandemic, our top strategic goal has been

to make sure our hospitals have the capacity – bed space and

resources – to serve all those who need care, and that continues

to be our top goal to this day.

Vaccines are making a difference, and with boosters and

vaccine approval for kids 5-11 years old, this will continue to

improve.

However, with roughly 126,000 Vermonters still unvaccinated,

we continue to see cases increase, which is leading to

more hospitalizations and deaths than we want to see. Today,

we reported 487 new cases out of over 18,000 tests completed,

which is the 2nd highest number of tests we’ve ever done.

It is important to note that this test positivity rate of 2.7% is

about what we’ve been seeing on average. But we do have to

consider the impact this case count could have on our hospital

capacity in the coming weeks. If we stayed at this level of

cases, based on our current hospitalization rate, there is potential

to see the number of people currently hospitalized

increase to over 80, which would be a significant strain on the

system.

Invoking a state of emergency is unnecessary at this time,

but we need Vermonters to think about what they can do to

protect those at risk of hospitalization and deaths. That means

each and every one of us taking individual steps to protect the

vulnerable in our lives – the elderly and those with underlying

conditions like heart or lung disease, smokers, or people who

are pregnant.

At this time, we urge Vermonters to do the following:

1. et accinated, get your ids accinated and get your

booster when eligible.

2. Today’s numbers could be driven by Halloween and other

gatherings, so gather wisely:

• Wear a mask when in indoor settings, even when vaccinated;

• Stay outside when you can;

• Be mindful of the size of gatherings;

• Encourage vaccination for guests at larger events and gatherings;

• Use testing as a tool; and

• Stay home when you are sick.

3. Add layers of protection when around the elderly and

medically vulnerable, including getting tested before visiting

or wearing a mask indoors with them.

For those choosing not to receive the vaccine, you have an

added responsibility to wear a mask indoors, keep six feet

apart and get tested regularly, but certainly before gathering or

avoid gatherings altogether. Choosing not to take these steps

is leading to unnecessary illness, hospitalizations and death in

our communities.

The simple fact is, this pandemic is being driven by the

unvaccinated, including 53,000 eligible adults. The three lowest

vaccinated counties account for 25% of today’s cases, yet

they only make up 10% of our state population. Unvaccinated

Vermonters are up to 5 times as likely to contract COVID in

Vermont and they account for 70-85% of our hospitalizations

and ICU stays. Unvaccinated adults are directly contributing

to the strain on our hospital capacity. Enough is enough, it’s

time to step up and get vaccinated – something over 90% of

your fellow Vermont adults have done.

Thankfully, 44,000 more Vermonters (kids ages 5-11) just

became eligible for vaccination. Today’s data underscores the

urgency for parents and caregivers to sign their children up to

be vaccinated if they are eligible. Vaccines are safe, effective

and free. Not only will they limit spread of the virus, but also

limit disruptions, like the need to quarantine after exposure,

which leads to kids missing school and other activities that

help their social and emotional wellbeing.

Again, we believe that if all Vermonters band together to

make smart choices in the coming weeks, we can make sure

that today’s uptick is not a trend that drives greater hospitalizations

and deaths. But it takes all of us stepping up and

committing to those smart choices, starting with getting vaccinated

if you have not done so. We do not want to take any

steps backwards, but we need your help to make smart

choices in your daily lives to protect the healthcare system

and keep us moving forward.

Federal OSHA Publishes Covid-19 Vaccination Rule

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration

(OSHA) released its Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) ,

which implements workplace requirements under the Biden

Administration’s Build Back Better Plan, to mitigate the risk

of contracting COVID-19 in the workplace.

OSHA’s ETS took effect November 5th; however, because

Vermont operates under an approved State Plan, known as the

Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Administration

(VOSHA), the State has an additional 30-days to adopt a state

standard that is at least as effective as the OSHA Standard.

• • •

The Department of Labor is reviewing the Standard and will

provide additional guidance to employers as it becomes available.

The Vermont Department of Labor will host a media availability

specific to the ETS on Friday, November 12 at

10:00am.

Remembering Those Who Served on Veterans Day

By Deb Paul

Starting in 1919, Americans have been celebrating a special

day on November 11, Veterans Day.

On this day we show respect to our veterans. The sad thing

is that even the holidays that were supposed to be devoted to

our veterans aren’t celebrated as much anymore. Memorial

Day is characterized by the launch of summer, barbecues, and

trips to the beach, rather than a time of reflection on those who

served and lost their lives in the service of our country.

Freedom isn’t free.

The cost of freedom has been lined with pain, heartaches,

suffering, and loss of lives, from the onset. It’s something

many of us take for granted when going about our daily lives.

Two days a year, Memorial Day and Veterans Day, are not

enough to recognize the sacrifice our military endure to protect

our freedom we so frivolously take for granted like freedom

of speech, voting, and the right to bear arms. Nonetheless,

this Veterans Day we should all take the time to sincerely

appreciate our veterans.

Thank you to the millions of veterans who have served and

are serving our country.

To those who are currently deployed, our

thoughts are with you and your families and we

hope you will return home safely.

It takes a special type of person to give up a comfortable

lifestyle, to be away from their family, to stand ready to protect

us at any time, and give everything for our freedoms.

A very powerful statement was made once about our armed

service members: “All gave some. Some gave all.” Those

fallen members gave their lives so that we can continue to live

in a democratic society. These people gave their all for us to

gain some.

By Betsy Bishop, Vermont Chamber of Commerce

Every day there is a news story about policies Vermont is

addressing to further diversity, equity, and inclusion. Many

organizations, including the Vermont Chamber, are focusing

on this internally and programmatically to do our part to foster

equity and inclusion in our areas of influence. And yet,

recently, I’ve seen reports of public slurs and hate directed at

people of color. This is most disturbing when we hear about it

at school events because these students – all of them – are our

future.

We cannot abide this intolerance. Vermont’s economic

growth and prosperity is dependent on our ability to embrace

all people. Today’s students are our customers, our future

workforce, our future leaders, our future entrepreneurs, and

our neighbors. When I read the op-ed An Honest Education is

a Key to Vermont’s Economic Future by Curtiss Reed, Jr.,

president and CEO of CRJ Consulting Group and executive

director of the Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity,

I recognized that as a business leader, I must amplify his message

and encourage businesses to spread the message that

Vermont only works if it works for everyone.

Our current demographics are challenging, and we must

welcome a growing and changing population to have a bright

future with healthy economic growth that complements our

deep values around environmental sustainability and a just

society. We want our economy, society, and environment to

thrive together. Vermont consistently ranks as one of the oldest

and whitest states in the nation. Before the pandemic, our

partners at the Vermont Futures Project identified that

Vermont needed 10,000 more workers in the labor force. That

number is even higher now.

According to their data, since the 2008 recession, Vermont

has struggled from the dual challenges of rural flight and an

aging population. Lifestyle amenities and urban job opportunities

draw workers away from rural areas, while a generation

of people are also retiring from the workforce.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released data this month that

shows we have 23,000 open jobs in Vermont – exacerbated by

the pandemic. We simply need more people here. We must

welcome all people into our communities as our neighbors

and co-workers to help sustain and grow this beautiful state.

Changing demographics are not only a national trend, but also

a gift and opportunity for Vermont.

At the Vermont Chamber, we are doing our part. We are

advocating for resources for BIPOC-owned businesses, diversifying

our Board of Directors, and developing programming

to help small businesses create and advance a culture of

belonging. We are also working to ensure State leaders continue

providing worker incentive programs and make policy

changes that attract military veterans to Vermont to strengthen

our workforce.

And the work to create a more equitable Vermont starts

early. In schools, teachers are helping students become their

best selves so they can one day lead Vermont with integrity.

The next generation should enter the workforce with diversity,

equity, and inclusion in their hearts as fundamental principles.

In a recent NPR interview, former President Barack Obama

said that optimism must be extended to people. “Sometimes

we put [other people] in a box and we assume that they’re

never going to change, and I reject that,” Obama said. “I think

the country has ... shown itself capable of changing.”

If we want to secure a strong economic future and attract

new residents, it’s our collective responsibility to make

Vermont the best place it can be – free of intolerance and full

of inclusion. A place where we recognize that our fates are

tied together and strive for shared success.

For these reasons and more, embracing diversity and promoting

equity is critical to Vermont’s economic health and

future. We are raising our voice. Have you?

Statement Calling for the Resignations or Dismissals

of Stowe Town Manager and Fire Chief

For 40 years, the Clarina Howard Nichols Center has

worked to end domestic and sexual violence in Lamoille

County. As the leading voice on these issues in our region, we

feel compelled to speak out clearly and forcefully in the case

of admitted sexual misconduct by Stowe Fire Chief Kyle

Walker and the inadequate response of Stowe Town Manager

Charles Safford.

Initially, the appropriate response to Walker’s actions

would have been to fire him from not only his part-time position

as a Stowe police officer, but also from his leadership

positions as Fire Chief and Town Health Officer. However,

the continued failure to act by Charles Safford, and his obvious

dismissal and failure to comprehend the severity of

Walker’s conduct, leads us at the Clarina Howard Nichols

Center to call on both Kyle Walker and Charles Safford to

resign from their positions or, if they refuse, for the Stowe

Selectboard to replace Charles Safford with someone equipped

to restore safety to Stowe’s Public Safety Department.

Our communities must be long past the time when the

abuse of women was minimized or dismissed by the old boys’

network that reflexively moves to protect the reputation of the

perpetrator, rather than the survivor. Through his public statements

and unwillingness to remove Walker from his position

of power, Charles Safford has shown that is precisely what is

• • •

Equity Is the Path to Economic Success in Vermont

• • •

No one knows or understands this sacrifice in the same way

a Gold Star Family does. There may never be an answer for

“why them”, but we as a country should support these families

through our appreciation for their loss and the sacrifice

made by their family members.

Many veterans never see combat, but some have. Some are

willing to share their painful experiences, and others aren’t.

Some have been deeply affected by their services, becoming

wounded physically and emotionally while others emerge

relatively unscarred. They do their duty with honor, dignity,

and loyalty. They served our country for all of us.

They all deserve a thank you on Veterans Day, and every day.

occurring in the town of Stowe, under his leadership.

In the October 7th issue of the Stowe Reporter, Safford was

quoted as saying, “His [Kyle Walker] reputation has taken a

hit and he will have to be extra diligent going forward, but he

has a right to demonstrate improved performance.” Safford

has also provided Walker’s need for an income and the lack of

criminal charges being filed as justification for a man who has

admitted sexual misconduct on the job to remain in one of the

most powerful positions in the Stowe community.

Neither a leader in a community’s public safety department

who has admitted sexually harming a member of our community,

nor a town manager charged with the hiring and

oversight of town employees who cannot or will not acknowledge

that harm, should be allowed to continue in those roles

of power and public trust.

This situation has been allowed to go on for far too long.

We expect a change in leadership at both the Stowe Fire

Department and the Town of Stowe. It is time for Kyle Walker

and Charles Safford to admit their mistakes, step down, and

allow our town to heal and once again build trust where it has

been broken.

Signed,

The Clarina Howard Nichols Center Board of Directors


Letter to the Editor,

Our poorest and most diverse Vermont school districts have

been critically underfunded for decades. This is due to inherent

flaws in our pupil weighting formula, which directs how

Vermont calculates student needs and allocates education

funds across the state. The Pupil Weighting Factors Report of

2019, commissioned by the legislature and written by researchers

from the University of Vermont and Rutgers University,

concluded that Vermont does not currently recognize the

actual costs of educating students who attend small schools,

come from low-income households, live in rural areas or those

who are English language learners. Districts that educate a

large number of these learners are forced to make up for the

lack of resources by raising their property taxes or by making

cuts to their school budgets. The UVM/Rutgers report made

very specific recommendations on exactly how to adjust the

weights to create equity in the funding formula.

Rutland struggles to meet the increasing needs of children

who are deeply scarred by the opioid epidemic. Burlington

and Winooski, the most diverse communities in the state,

struggle to pass budgets that fully support the needs of our

diverse students. Windham County and Northeast Kingdom

struggle with a lack of economy of scale while having to provide

essential human services for our rural students. Our districts

and other struggling districts throughout the state all

share the extreme difficulty of meeting students’ minimum

needs due to insufficient resources. Meeting these specific

needs often comes at the expense of cutting general education

programming. Imagine what we could do if we were

equitably resourced.

The Task Force on the Implementation of the Pupil

Weighting Factors Report has been meeting since June to try

and solve this issue. While they agree that the problem is

real, the solution has become highly politicized. The Task

Force could have spent some of it’s allotted 12 meetings

creating an implementation plan (as it’s appropriately

named) which would phase in and mitigate taxing impacts

on “overweight districts” (districts that have had access to

more resources than their actual student needs demand).

Instead, they have spent their time creating alternatives to

the weights, paying little deference to the expert recommendations

right in front of them.

With few meetings remaining, the Task Force’s only

released proposal strips English language learners out of the

formula entirely, funding them with unreliable grants, separately

from their native English speaking peers. With no

empirical basis for the grant amounts, the only thing that’s

Dawn of the Dead (1978)

★★★★

Pupil Weighting Factors Report

• • •

In George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead,” a small

zombie plague hit the Pennsylvania countryside. Seven

people holed up inside a farmhouse to wait out the crisis.

“Night” is a low-budget masterpiece: simple, inevitable,

relentlessly grim.

“Dawn of the Dead” is a messier movie: morally and in

terms of how much blood is spilled.

“Dawn” takes place after society has broken down. There’s

no more radio broadcasts and no more government. Just millions

of zombies and pockets of heavily armed humans fighting

to survive.

I doubt there will ever be a 21st Century zombie movie that

is as great as George Romero’s were.

The problem with modern high-tech flicks like “World War

Z” is that the zombies are computer generated and move

unnaturally quickly. They are little more than video game bad

guys to be heartlessly shot down.

The zombies in writer/director George Romero’s films are

actors in make-up without any super speed or super powers.

After a human survives an attack by killing a zombie, there is

a moment of empathy and sorrow. This was not a victory to be

celebrated; this is a terrible thing. That zombie was us.

In a bad modern zombie movie, the characters would work

toward a solution to the problem or a cure to the plague. But

real people would have no chance of accomplishing these

things.

In “Dawn of the Dead,” the last living people just do their

best to find meaning in a world with no family, country, jobs,

or religion. They all look to the same false idol: consumerism.

The four lead characters in “Dawn of the Dead” steal a TV

weather chopper and fly to … the mall.

Living at the mall offers the survivors a jolt of excitement.

They have everything they could ever want – for free! But it

turns out that the zombies are just as attracted to the mall as

they are.

“They’re after us. They know we’re still here.” “No, they’re

clear is that these grants would be a boon to many overweight

districts, while leaving the most diverse districts with considerably

fewer resources than would the UVM/Rutgers recommendations.

The Task Force has also made it clear that if they

correct the remaining weights, they will use the smallest

weights possible, which are derived from data that the report

authors themselves have said are less accurate. Additionally,

they’ve made it abundantly clear that they only intend to provide

modeling for their proposals. That means the Task Force

will not provide updated modeling to compare their proposals

to the empirically derived, highly vetted recommendations

from the 2019 Report. It is also worth noting that the Task

Force includes two members from Addison County and none

from Chittenden County. Diverse districts are not represented

on this Task Force.

The common intersection between poverty and new

American English language learners makes the flaws in our

funding formula particularly troubling. As usual, our poorest

and most diverse communities are most harmed by systemic

inequities. It is their more homogeneous and affluent neighbors

who, in contrast, have been getting more than their fair

share of education funds for over 20 years. Under the corrected

formula, everyone’s access to resources would actually

reflect the diverse needs of students they are educating. This

is true equity and the right thing to do to ensure that all of

Vermont’s children have equitable educational opportunities.

The influx of one-time federal funds could easily be used by

the Task Force to mitigate the impact of such a formula

change on overweight districts.

Recently, Niche.com published a list of the top 10 public

schools in Vermont. All but one of these schools is overweight.

That isn’t a coincidence. Money buys resources. The

majority of school districts in Vermont are underweight and

doing their absolute best with what is available, but only so

many programs can be cut from a budget and we can only

ask our low-income tax base to spend so much. While we

recognize that every Vermont district is struggling right now

due to the pandemic, we promise you, not all struggles are

created equal. The Task Force has a clear choice - to act on

equity or to merely pay lip service to equity while maintaining

the status quo.

after the place. They don’t know why; they just remember.

Remember that they want to be in here.”

George Romero is horrified by American materialism. We

shop pointlessly and mindlessly, never questioning whether

our lives will be any richer after we’ve consumed another

mass-produced product.

The zombie-as-shopper metaphor isn’t very sophisticated

obviously. “Dawn of the Dead” gets more interesting when it

explores the shopping habits of the human characters.

Faced with the total breakdown of society, our four human

heroes cling to 20th Century consumerism in a futile effort to

find meaning. The helicopter pilot – Stephen – gushes to his

girlfriend about all the wonderful free stuff in the mall, giddy

with the drug-like euphoria of a shopping spree.

But in the ultra-violent final act, it is clear that consumer

goods are all that he has left. When a band of armed raiders

busts into the mall, our four heroes could simply hide and let

the ruffians take what they want. But Stephen can’t part with

any of it. “It’s ours … we took it,” he mutters as he chooses to

fight to the death over his beloved stuff.

This is a subversive movie. I couldn’t find it on Netflix or

Amazon Prime Video. I couldn’t even find it for sale in the

iTunes store. I had to watch it on YouTube. I’m pretty sure that

the people who run our world don’t want us to see it. The last

thing they want is for us to stop shopping.

George Romero was a first-rate filmmaker and an important

social philosopher. “Dawn of the Dead” is a must-see.

Long Term Care Sector Continues to Battle Worsening Workforce Crisis

aregiers in long term care facilities continue to eit the

profession, resulting in a worsening labor crisis. According to

data from the Bureau of Labor, nursing homes have lost more

than 380,000 employees because of the pandemic. A recent

American Health Care Association and National Center for

Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) survey found that nearly

every nursing home and assisted living community is currently

facing a workforce crisis.

Reports indicate that the staffing shortages show no signs

of slowing. McKnight’s Senior Living reports that nearly 49

ercent of nurses are liely to eit the rofession oer the

net two years, according to a hifted surey of 20 nurses.

Among respondents who said they may leave, 38 percent

intend to pursue non-patient-facing roles in healthcare, while

31 percent plan to leave the healthcare industry completely.

igher ay, better shifts and more fleible scheduling were

among some of the factors that respondents said might convince

more nurses to stay in the field.

The staffing shortages are forcing facilities to turn away

new residents. n fact, 8 ercent of nursing homes hae had

to limit new admissions because of a lack of employees. As a

result, occupancy rates have been slow to recover. This puts

a strain on the entire health care system, as overwhelmed

hospitals are unable to discharge patients to nearby skilled

nursing centers, and residents and families are left scrambling

looking for alternative locations.

Chronic Medicaid underfunding, combined with the billions

of dollars providers have spent to fight the pandemic,

leave long term care providers unable to solve this crisis on

their own. Offering higher wages and better benefits would

enable providers to attract new workers and incentivize current

workers to stay, but they simply lack the financial means

to compete against other health care employers.

Now, long term care facilities are facing yet another challenge.

As providers turn to direct care staffing agencies to

help alleviate workforce challenges, some agencies are price

gouging providers by charging double – and in some cases

quadruple – what providers pay their staff. AHCA/NCAL

sent a letter to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairwoman

Lina Khan, requesting that the FTC use its authority to investigate

this price gouging and take appropriate action to protect

long term care facilities.

Lawmakers must act now. The reconciliation package currently

under discussion can help address this urgent labor

crisis. AHCA and LeadingAge have also offered several solutions

to bolster the workforce in its Care for Our Seniors Act.

his includes assistance rograms for caregiers through ta

credits, loan forgiveness and childcare, as well as incentives

for higher learning institutions to train the net generation of

health care heroes.

The workforce crisis ultimately threatens access to care for

vulnerable seniors. Without immediate solutions, residents

who require around-the-clock assistance may be left with

fewer options for care. They may have to relocate farther

away from their families and community of choice. It’s time

for Congress to put their full support behind our nation’s

health care heroes, so every senior can get the care their need.

Medicare doesn’t have to be complicated.

With your Vermont Blue Advantage ® , you can get an all-in-one Medicare

Advantage plan that includes coverage for prescriptions, vision, dental,

and hearing, along with premiums starting at $0.00 a month.

Vermont Blue Advantage ® is a PPO and HMO plan with a Medicare contract.

SENIOR LIVING | THE WORLD

Eating Healthy for Seniors

We need a healthy and balanced diet so that we get the nutrition

we need to stay healthy. Also not a surprise. But what

may come as news is that what you previously ate may not

be as good for you because of what happens when we age.

WHY GOOD NUTRITION IS IMPORTANT

Good nutrition gives you energy to get through your day

and can control your weight. It also helps prevent diseases

such as osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure

and some types of cancer. Older adults typically need

fewer calories, so they need to make sure that what they eat

counts nutritionally. You may also need more protein as you

age; ask your doctor to make sure your diet stays on track.

CHALLENGES TO HEALTHY EATING

s you age, it can be more difficult to eat healthy, edlinePlus

says. For instance, it may be harder to get around or to

drive to the grocery for fresh food. If you’re in poor health,

it can be difficult to coo and feed yourself. ome medicines

may also change how food tastes, make your mouth dry or

take away your appetite. Your senses of smell and taste may

change, or you may have problems chewing and swallowing

your food.

EATING HEALTHFULLY

As you get older, make sure you choose foods that pack

a nutritional punch without a lot of extra calories. These

include fruits and vegetables, particularly those with bright

colors; whole grains such as oatmeal, whole wheat bread and

brown rice; fat-free or low-fat milks and cheeses; seafood,

lean meats, poultry and eggs; beans, nuts and seeds.

Avoid empty calories such as chips, candy, baked goods,

soda and alcohol and pick items that are low in cholesterol

and fat. Especially avoid saturated and trans fats.

Drink enough water and liquids so you don’t get dehydrated

and stay physically active. Exercising may help you

feel hungrier.

IF YOU’RE HAVING TROUBLE

See your doctor and your dentist regularly to check on

any problems chewing or swallowing. If you’re having

trouble smelling and tasting your food, add color and texture

to make your meals more interesting. If an illness is making

it harder to cook or feed yourself, check with your health

care provider to see if they can help.

New Survey: Most Americans Don’t Know About Lifesaving Lung Cancer Screening

Survey data released show that only 36% of people know

that lung cancer screening is available and 28% know that

lung cancer is the leading cancer killer of women and men.

The American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative

released the 2021 Lung Health Barometer as it recognizes the

start of ung ancer wareness onth.

“Here in Vermont and across the nation, lung cancer is the

leading cancer killer. It is estimated that in 2021, 570 people

will be diagnosed with lung cancer and 340 will die from the

disease,” said Kaelyn Gates, development director at the

Lung Association in Vermont. “However, there is hope. The

five-year survival rate has increased 33% in the past 10 years

thanks to advancements in treatment, research and lifesaving

lung cancer screening.”

The 2021 Lung Health Barometer surveyed 4,000

Americans nationwide about lung health and lung cancer.

Some key findings show that:

• 29% of Americans know that lung cancer is the leading

cancer killer of women and men, which is an 8% increase

from the 2020 Lung Health Barometer.

• Only 10% of adults understand that lung cancer is among

the most likely cancers to affect women while 35% know that

it is among those cancers most likely to affect men.

• Only 36% of respondents know that lung cancer screening

is now available for early detection of the disease for those

who are high risk.

See more Lung Health Barometer survey results here:

HONORING ALL WHO SERVED

VETERANS DAY

Originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the fi rst anniversary

of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926

for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday

beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to

all American veterans— living or dead—but especially gives thanks

to living veterans who served their country honorably during war

or peacetime.

VETERANS TODAY

The military men and women who serve and protect the

U.S. come from all walks of life; they are parents, children,

grandparents, friends, neighbors and coworkers, and are an

important part of their communities. Here are some facts about

the veteran population of the United States:

- 16.1 million living veterans served during at least one war.

- 5.2 million veterans served in peacetime.

- 2 million veterans are women.

- 7 million veterans served during the Vietnam War.

- 5.5 million veterans served during the Persian Gulf War.

- Of the 16 million Americans who served during

World War II, about 558,000 are still alive.

-2 million veterans served during the Korean War.

-6 million veterans served in peacetime.

A Vermont Lovers Guide to

Thanksgiving

Oh, Thanksgiving in Vermont! A time to gather around

the table with family and friends to enjoy the farmers’ harvest.

In Vermont, local food is at the center of our festivities.

Vermonters are lucky to have an array of options, from

locally grown vegetables and poultry to farmstead cheese,

as well as outstanding specialty products to add to homemade

appetizers, sides, and desserts.

Let’s give thanks to our local makers this year by sharing

their delicious Vermont-made products at our tables. Begin

your celebration with a cheese board filled with meats,

cheeses, pickles, crackers, and more. Elevate your main

course with jams, spices, and maple syrup. Sweeten the

evening with chocolates and confections. If you’re attending

another home, gift your host with a delightful specialty

food or beverage you know they will enjoy.

Start a new tradition with a variety of wonderful offerings

from VSFA producers and add a taste of Vermont to

your table this year!

About the Vermont Specialty Food Association:

The Vermont Specialty Food Association is the leading

information resource for all specialty food and beverage

producers, service providers, and industry professionals.

VSFA seeks to grow specialty food businesses and the Vermont

industry through education, promotion, and statewide

and national collaboration. It is the nation’s oldest and most

highly regarded specialty food association, celebrating over

30 years of service to the industry. To learn more about the

work VSFA does, visit their website at www.vtspecialtyfoods.org,

GO FIGURE

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figure given at

the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by

following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given

(that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the

numbers below the diagram to complete its blank

squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Concepts Kakuro

Best described as a number

crossword, the task in

Kakuro is to fill all of the

empty square, using numbers

1 to 9, so the sum of

each horizontal lock equals

the number to its left, and

the sum of each vertical

block equals the number

on its top. No number may

be used in the same block

more than once.

PET OF THE WEEK

Kit is a fabulous feline that came to CVHS

when she became a mother cat and her

human was unable to provide for all. Kit

raised her babies and they have found new

homes, so now it's Kit's turn! Kit has brief

exposure on being an indoor/outdoor cat,

is familiar with other felines and cat-savvy

canines. She can be bossy with other cats

so needs to be in a cat-free home or a

household that has a cat that won't mind

Kit's forwardness.

All adoptions are done by a phone

appointment only (no one is allowed

in the building). Contact an adoption

counselor to set up an appointment

at 802-476-3811 or emailing

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

sorts, fi shing rodcts, 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.
