Vermont Agency of Education Releases

2021 Statewide Assessment Results

The Vermont Agency of Education announced

state-level results from the Smarter

Balanced Assessment Program and the Vermont

Science Assessment along with the release

of the Vermont Education Dashboard

Version 4.0. The Smarter Balanced assessments

are administered annually in the spring

to students in grades three through nine. They

are designed to measure students’ mastery of

the Common Core State Standards in English

Language Arts and Mathematics. The Vermont

Science Assessment is given to students

Governor Phil Scott Announces Availability of $10

Million for Capital Improvement Grants Through the

Agency of Commerce and Community Development

The Agency of Commerce and Community

Development (ACCD) is now accepting

applications for more than $10,580,000 for

the Capital Investment Grant Program. This

new program, proposed by the Scott

Administration and passed by the Legislature

through Act 74, is funded through the

American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to support

capital investment projects that will

assist Vermont’s economic recovery effort.

The funding is intended for transformational

projects that create opportunity to

retain existing businesses, attract more businesses,

create jobs and strengthen communities

by encouraging capital investments and

economic growth.

“The federal aid we have received over the

last year presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

to transform our state and create greater

prosperity for Vermonters,” said Governor

Phil Scott. “This capital investment program

is yet another step toward that goal, as we

work to keep – and expand – good jobs and

more economic opportunity in every region

of the state.”

The application process will have two

stages, due to the complexity of the program

guidelines and the need to ensure ARPA

Federal guidance is followed.

• Stage I: Any for-profit or non-profit business

is eligible to submit a Letter of Intent

(LOI). During this time, potential applicants

will have the opportunity to get feedback,

additional review and input from the Capital

Investment Team.

• Stage II: The formal application will be

made available upon completion of the first

stage with a deadline to submit it by December

27, 2021.

In a LOI, applicants must demonstrate

impact in one of the following three areas:

• COVID impact.

• Project supports the hospitality sector.

• Be in a qualified census tract.

The Notice of Funding Opportunity if now

available for review, and the program will

offer grants of up to $1,500,000 to for-profits

and non-profits across Vermont. The program

will be overseen by the Vermont Department

of Economic Development.

“We realize the number of potential projects

that exist for the use of this funding may

be larger than what we have available. We

want to work with communities prior to

receiving formal applications so that any

additional information required for consideration

can be identified in a collaborative manner,”

said Department of Economic

Development Commissioner Joan Goldstein.

“This money represents an exciting time to

bring real impact to our communities around

the state as we continue to recover from the

COVID-19 pandemic. We hope these grants

and the projects they fund will benefit

Vermont and Vermonters for years to come.”

Montshire Museum of

Science Announces New

Executive Director

The Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont, is

pleased to announce the selection of Lara Litchfield-Kimber

as its new executive director. Litchfield-Kimber will fill this

role in January 2022.

“The Board of Trustees of the Montshire Museum of

Science is very excited to welcome Lara,” said Michael

Bettmann, Board Chair. “She is an exceptionally qualified,

experienced, and well-regarded leader in the field of science

and children’s museums. We are certain that through her leadership,

she will help the museum achieve even more, both

locally and nationally.”

The board-appointed search committee’s work began in

May 2021, led by Trustee Jeremy DeSilva. With the help of

Kittleman & Associates of Boston, a national search was conducted,

leading to meetings with more than 40 candidates

from around the country with a diverse range of professional

experiences.

“Science and science literacy have never been more important—to

have a nationally recognized Museum here says a lot

about our community and what it values,” said DeSilva. “Lara

Litchfield-Kimber will take the Montshire to new heights. She

is an innovative leader and a charismatic communicator who

will be the voice of science in the Upper Valley and beyond

for years to come.”

Litchfield-Kimber comes to the Montshire with a passion

for science education and conservation of natural resources.

Her work is firmly rooted in empowering the public with science-informed

knowledge. She is a scientist by training, a

visionary nonprofit leader, and an accomplished inquiry-based

educator. She currently serves as the Executive Director of the

Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum (MHCM) in Poughkeepsie,

New York. Her tenure there has produced a new organizational

strategy resulting in a significant increase in annual

attendance, partnerships that effectively support the educational

needs of the region, and international recognition, particularly

due to its groundbreaking work in fighting food

insecurity in their community, which was honored with the

Association of Science and Technology Centers’ Roy L.

Shafer Leading Edge Award for Business Practice. MHCM

has been named a “Top STEM Educator” by Kids Out and

About and recognized as the “Best Museum in the Hudson

Valley” by regional publications.

Prior to leading the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum,

Litchfield-Kimber was Deputy Director of the Sciencenter in

Ithaca, New York. She continues to be engaged in the science

education and museum community through her work with

various organizations, including the Association of Science

and Technology Centers (ASTC), the Association of Children’s

Museums (ACM), the American Alliance of Museums (AAM),

and the Museum Association of New York (MANY). She was

a Noyce Leadership Initiative Fellow and a recipient of both

the Chamber Foundation’s Athena Award and the Dutchess

County Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Headliner Award

for Leadership and Community.

“It is an incredible honor to be joining the Montshire team

and to have the opportunity to work collaboratively with its

staff, board, and community stakeholders in advancing STEM

education and inspiring the next generation of critical thinkers,

problem solvers, and innovators,” shares Litchfield-Kimber.

“Now more than ever, interactive science museums have an

important role to play in connecting learners of all ages with

awe-inspiring and relevant experiences in STEM that help build

self-confidence, science literacy, and public trust.”

$100,000 grant from Shaw’s and Star Market

Foundation’s Nourishing Neighbors Program

that aims to help connect individuals with federal

meal programs such as SNAP (known in

Vermont as 3SquaresVT), WIC, P-EBT, and

free or reduced school nutrition programs.

the pandemic has caused for so many of us,

these programs are more important than ever

to help people manage their budgets and get

back on their feet,” said Anore Horton, the

Executive Director of HFVT. “We’re grateful

that Shaw’s and Star Market Foundation’s

Nourishing Neighbors are partnering with us

to help ensure all our neighbors have enough

to eat during challenging times.”

The goal of Star Market Foundation’s

Vermont Farm Fund Launches

New Producer Loans

The Vermont Farm Fund, a non-profit

revolving loan fund for local farmers and

food producers, has launched a new loan program

for start-up farmers and food businesses.

The VFF’s New Producer Loan will provide

access to no-hassle, friendly-term loans

up to $20,000 at a low 3% interest rate. A true

revolving loan fund, as the community of

recipients pays back their loans, funds are

replenished for the next cycle of borrowers.

Started in 2011 in response to Tropical

Storm Irene, the Vermont Farm Fund has

grown to over $750,000 and has made more

than two million dollars in Emergency and

Business Builder loans over that time. The

New Producer Loan was developed in

response to increasing demand from farmers

who were starting new enterprises or moving

onto new land and needed capital to fund

infrastructure improvements or equipment to

get up and running. Over the past three years

the VFF has partnered with the Vermont Land

Trust’s Farmland Access Program to support

farmers in that program with access to capital,

and the launch of the New Producer Loan will

open access up to farmers and food producers

across the state.

New Producer Loans are exclusively for

• • •

farm and food-related businesses registered

and located in Vermont that either produce or

source ingredients for their value added food

processing from local farms/producers

(defined as Vermont plus 30 miles). Examples

of a New Producer Loan include infrastructure

improvements to convert an existing

farm to new crops or products, purchase of

food processing equipment, or launching a

website to promote a new CSA. Applicants

are required to supply a written business plan

prepared with outside support from a technical

assistance provider that includes at least

two years of financial projections.

Applications are reviewed and responded to

within 10 business days, with most loan funds

being granted to approved recipients within

14 business days.

The Vermont Farm Fund is a program of

the Center for an Agricultural Economy, a

501(c)3 non-profit organization based in

Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Through programs

that support food access, farm viability,

and working landscapes, CAE is building

a healthy, regenerative food system by promoting

local foods and the people who produce

them.

3rd Annual Athena Awards

Gala a Complete Success

The Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce

held it’s annual ATHENA Leadership Awards

Gala on Saturday, November 6th. We were once

again able to recognize two exceptional Vermont

women for their leadership, achievements, and

community spirit.

Lisa Keysar was unanimously approved by the

Board of Directors at Union Mutual to assume the

position of President and CEO in October of

2020, giving her the distinction of being the first

female President of her company’s 147-year history.

Lisa currently sits on the Board of Directors

for Special Olympics Vermont and as Corporator

for Northfield Savings Bank. Personally, Lisa is

generous with her time and money and commits to hosting

and participating in volunteer efforts both on her own time

and through Company sponsorships. Lisa supports the

Company’s 1 for 1 volunteer benefit where employees earn a

day off for volunteering.

Congratulations to Lisa as our 2021 ATHENA Award

recipient!

Dr. Page Spiess was recently named as an inaugural Fellow

within Norwich University’s Institute for Innovation in

Teaching and Learning as well as the Academic Integrity

Officer for NU campus programs. These recent honors substantiate

the initiative and creativity she has demonstrated as

a collaborative interdisciplinary instructor and peer mentor in

and out of the academic setting. Dr. Page Spiess began her

service work in Vermont over ten years ago after moving to

the state. Since then, her efforts have concentrated on inspiring

young Vermonters and supporting her community members.

As a STEM professional and former Maine

MATHCOUNTS competitor, Page has acted as a grader and

volunteer in the Vermont State MATHCOUNTS Competition.

She has also spent years working with Vermont Works for

Women in multiple capacities, including as a Planning

Committee member for the Women Can Do! Conference, and

as Program Developer and Coordinator for the Rosie’s Girls

STEM Leadership Camps at Vermont Technical College.

Congratulations to Page as our 2021 ATHENA Young

Professional Award Recipient!

MSAC Welcomes new FEAST

Kitchen Manager/Chef

After months of planning and a strong slate of candidates

stepped forward, MSAC recently announced that Ms.

Shalonda James is stepping in to run the FEAST Kitchen. Ms.

James comes to MSAC with a rich background in the culinary

world, most recently managing the large kitchen at the

Woodridge Rehabilitation Center. In her interview, she

impressed staff with her excitement to grow the FEAST

kitchen, her desire to “elevate the experience” of senior meal

recipients by providing them with the nutrition they need and

allowing them the opportunity to share their wisdom with the

community. Her many experiences as a pastry chef, production

manager, sous chef and team leader will be an incredible

asset to the FEAST program as it grows. Ms. James will settle

in throughout the month of November, but you can come try

her delicious meals for Curbside Pickup on Tuesdays and

Fridays starting the week of November 15th. In December,

she’ll be preparing all of the FEAST meals including Meals

on Wheels! Please join MSAC in welcoming her to Team

MSAC!

Activity: It’s MSAC’s middle name!

Where do older adults in Central Vermont turn for expertled

art lessons, engaging humanities offerings, and healthenhancing

movement? Each year, hundreds of them—even in

COVID times—rely on Montpelier Senior Activity Center

(MSAC) to provide affordable options to support healthy

aging and lifelong learning. MSAC currently hosts over four

dozen weekly offerings, and many are surprised to discover

the variety of options that include—but go far beyond—tabletop

games!

Some of MSAC’s most popular online and in-person

classes include Yoga (a dozen options), Pilates Express,

Creative Writing, a Film and Music Appreciation series,

Painting, and Bone Builders at six different weekday and evening

times. Free drop-in groups range from Tai Chi to crafting,

walking to ukulele playing.

In the 2021 annual survey, 71% of respondents reported that

because they began MSAC activities, they’re getting more

exercise, 59% have more options for how to spend time, and

57% are learning new things. One respondent cheered, “I’m

SO grateful MSAC was able to offer classes virtually. It has

been a lifesaver during the pandemic…I’ve really appreciated

the ease of taking yoga and bone builders without leaving my

house, especially during winter.”

MSAC follows national trends in increasing intergenerational

opportunities, like opening activities to all ages. As a

cutting-edge “senior center without walls,” they’ve held

classes in multiple towns at restaurants, theaters and town

halls. Well before COVID, MSAC was providing technology

training, and now they’ve added dozens of online offerings;

they’re even developing a smart-device lending library.

VSAC’s Talent Search Program Receives 6-Year Funding Extension

• • •

The federally-funded Talent Search program, which has

made great strides connecting modest income Vermont high

school students with opportunities for college and training,

has received a six-year funding extension, according to the

Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC), which has

administered the grant program since 1969.

The six-year, $2.6 million grant will allow VSAC to continue

its work in 46 middle and high schools across the state.

Each year, VSAC Talent Search counselors work with approximately

1,000 Vermont students, supporting them in areas

such as study skills, career exploration, the college research

and application processes, and selection of high school courses

that will best prepare them for their post-secondary track.

VSAC measures program outcomes each year, and recent

data show strong success rates for the students who are part

of VSAC’s Talent Search. For example, in the class of 2020,

78% of Talent Search participants enrolled in a postsecondary

education program by the following academic year, compared

Education, the state’s overall postsecondary enrollment rate

is about 62%.

The Vermont Congressional delegation played a critical

role in securing funding for this innovative career and education

outreach program. Scott Giles, President and CEO of

VSAC, thanked Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders,

and Congressman Peter Welch, for their continued support.

“Talent Search helps us open the doors to higher education

for young Vermonters across the state who face and are working

to oercoe ignificnt rrier to cieing teir euction

and career goals. These students are a critical part of our

state efforts to strengthen our workforce and grow our postpandemic

economy. We are proud to support them on their

career and education journey and these funds make it all possible,”

Giles said.

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), who is Chairman of the

Senate Appropriations Committee, emphasized the importance

of programs like Talent Search for Vermonters and for

the state of Vermont. “We know that education beyond high

school is critical to preparing young people for the jobs of the

future,” he said, “and we know that VSAC’s work is paying

off in ter of getting ore loincoe n firtgenertion

Vermonters to go on to college. These investments will pay

dividends for generations to come, both for the individuals

and for the state’s economy. I’m proud to play a part in ensuring

that important work continues.”

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Chair of the Senate Budget

Committee and a senior member of the Senate’s education

committee said, “Every student who wants to should be able

to further their education after high school, regardless of their

background or how much money they have. Now more than

ever, we must do everything we can to help our students prepare

for, and succeed in, college. VSAC plays a critical role

in helping students do just that, which is why I am so glad

they are receiving this federal grant and why I will continue

to figt for te lent erc rogr n ll feerl

programs.”

Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT) added that higher education

is an essential part of planning for a strong future. “The

Talent Search program is about ensuring that all Vermont students

– regardless of their background or income – can access

opportunities through higher education and training programs.

This isn’t just about building a more equitable future for all

Vermonters, this is about investing in our state’s workforce.

Eligible students can be enrolled in the VSAC Talent Search

program as early as sixth grade and continue through high

school graduation.

Enrolled students meet regularly with an assigned VSAC

Four Broadcasters, including a Canine Co-host, to be Inducted

into the Vermont Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame

Former NBC5-TV Anchor Stephanie Gorin, WCAX-TV

Photographer Shelly Holt Allen, Radio Vermont Group

General Manager Steve Cormier and WVTK-FM Human/

Canine co-hosts Bruce & Hobbes will be inducted in the

Vermont Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame Saturday,

December 4, 2021 at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington, VT.

Stephanie Gorin served as a WPTZ/NBC5 Anchor/Reporter

for a combined 26 years before retiring December 11, 2020.

While at WPTZ, Gorin helped launch the region’s first 5 p.m.

newscast and helped lead coverage of several high profile

stories, including Hurricane Irene, the prison escape from

Dannemora and U. S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ first presidential

run. Stephanie also served as a mentor for Junior reporters,

has been nominated for regional Emmys, has won awards

from the NY State Broadcasters Association and was part of

the team that won New England EMMY® Awards, regional

Edward R. Murrow awards and the VAB Broadcaster of the

Year award in 2015. Outside of work, Gorin has volunteered

as a speaker at CVPH’s annual Girls Night Out and host of the

local Red Cross’s Everyday Heroes Awards.

Shelly Holt Allen is the Assistant Chief Photographer at

WCAX-TV in South Burlington. Working tirelessly through

endless odd hours, Shelly has photographed every part of

Vermont and documented every significant part of Vermont’s

history over the last 40 years. Always exhibiting the utmost

journalistic integrity, Shelly is a pioneer in a profession

dominated by men, even shooting while pregnant, which is

impressive considering how physically demanding carrying

all that gear can be! Shelly continues to be a positive role

model, mentoring countless young photographers and reporters.

Outside of work, Shelly supports local ice skating clubs

for kids, from making costumes for ice shows to driving many

hours for competitions.

Steve Cormier (aka “Corm”) is the General Manager and

future owner of Radio Vermont Group in Waterbury, including

WDEV-AM & FM, WCVT-FM and WLVB-FM. Corm

lives and breathes local radio and has entertained listeners

across the state as an on-air personality and a Station Program

Director. First, as half of the Morning Show “Corm and the

Coach” with UVM Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Brennan,

which aired on WIZN-FM and WCPV-FM (Champ 101.3),

then on his own at WTSA AM & FM in Brattleboro.

Dedicated to his community, Steve volunteers for numerous

non-profits and has served on numerous Boards, including the

VAB Board of Directors. Corm’s passion, belief in and lifelong

commitment to local radio’s success is infectious.

After Bruce Zeman rescued Hobbes from domestic abuse

in 2009, they became the first full time human/canine radio

team in U.S. history. In addition to being the Morning Show

on WVTK-FM in Middlebury, Bruce & Hobbes have been

heard on other Vermont stations, including WCLX-FM,

WOKO-FM, WTNN-FM and WWFY-FM. Bruce & Hobbes

have made appearances at hundreds of community events.

Listeners were drawn to and invested in their messages of

empathy, compassion, tolerance, hope, love and resilience.

Bruce & Hobbes raised $75,000+ through their “Cash for

Paws” annual radiothons on WVTK and during the “Hobbes

Goes Home” book tour. THEY visited 250+ schools to talk

about anti-bullying and domestic violence, an effort recognized

by President Obama. Hobbes was recognized on the

Vermont Legislature floor twice and became an honorary

Police K9, a Deputy Sheriff and a Fire Dog. After Hobbes

passed away, Governor PHIL Scott declared July 28, 2021

“Hobbes Remembrance Day”, making history yet again.

Zeman, who began his professional radio career after graduating

from the St. Michael’s college journalism program, also

broadcasts high school and college sports in the Addison

County area.

Being inducted into the VAB Hall of Fame is not the only

accomplishment being celebrated December 4th. Five more

broadcasters will be recognized with awards for industry

excellence.

The VAB’s Distinguished Service award will go to retired

WFFF-TV Master Control Operator Bill Goldsbury, recognizing

his more than 40 years at WFFF-TV (Local 44) and

WCAX-TV. Bill is known for his dependability and finding

and resolving critical issues before they impact the live broadcast.

Because COVID-19 kept the VAB from gathering in 2020,

two deserving people will receive the Snyder-Teffner award

as well as the relatively new Rising Star award this year.

Lynn Elkert, who served as the Traffic Manager for VOX

AM/FM for decades until she retired last year and Tim

Thayer, WCAX-TV’s Chief Engineer are the winners of the

Snyder-Teffner award. Both individuals go above and beyond

to support the team that creates the on-air product listeners

hear and viewers see.

The Snyder-Teffner award is named for long-time VAB

Board members and Broadcast Engineers Dennis Snyder and

Ted Teffner and recognizes excellence behind the scenes for

those who work off the mic in radio or off camera in television.

The VAB is giving two “Rising Star” awards to Liz

Stzrepa, WPTZ-TV Anchor/Reporter and Noah Villamarin-

Cutter, VPR’s Digital Services Manager to celebrate the next

Generation of Vermont Broadcasters. Although both are relatively

new to broadcasting, Liz and Noah have the talent,

passion, resourcefulness and dedication to community needed

to enjoy long and successful careers in broadcasting.

award winners can be found at https://vab.org/2021-vab-hallof-fame-inductees-and-award-winners/.

NATURAL HEALTH CORNER | JOSHUA SINGER

One of the most common reasons

that someone seeks care in my

office is to help manage their

menopausal symptoms. Menopause is a

natural, sometimes unwelcome, hormonal

change of a woman’s body. It is the ending

of the ability to reproduce. Mood swings,

anxiety, sleep disturbance, hot flashes,

night sweating, decreased libido, dryness, and constipation are

some of the common symptoms. This shift typically begins to

occur in the mid to late forties. A woman is considered in

menopause if she hasn’t had a menstrual cycle in one year.

OVERWHELMED BY HEAT

Often the symptom that can be most uncomfortable and

disruptive is hot flashes. This can occur regularly throughout

the day. It may happen a couple times a day or a couple times

an hour, when you may feel as if you just stepped into an oven

for a minute. This is the particular menopausal symptom that

women often seek help to manage. Night sweating can be

severe, where you may be awoken in bed several times during

the night drenched in sweat, possibly needing to change your

clothes and sheets. Such sweating is depleting to the body and

the consistently disturbed sleep may compromise health in

other ways. We’ve all experienced when just a few nights of

poor sleep affects our mood, energy level, mental focus, and

our immune system, let alone every night disturbed by excessive

sweating.

TIME OF IMBALANCE

In ancient China, the body was recognized as another object

in nature, so similarities between the environment and the

body were observed and expected. One could see menopause

as a changing of the body in a similar way as we experience

the change of season from Summer to Fall. It’s the ending of

that prolific time when a woman’s body is able to reproduce.

Like the fluctuating temperature and weather, menopause is

not necessarily a smooth transition. In Chinese Medicine, this

is considered a time of imbalance of Yin and Yang within the

body. While understanding the hormonal changes that cause

these symptoms, the practitioner of Chinese Medicine can also

use this other language when treating menopausal women to

ease hot flashes, night sweats, and the various other challenging

symptoms.

Yin is considered the cooling and calming aspect of the

body while Yang is seen as the warming and activating.

Nighttime is when it is cooler and generally calmer for us,

Kinney Drugs Opens COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments for Ages 5+

Kinney Drugs, a 100% employee-owned leading pharmacy

chain in New York and Vermont, has opened COVID-19 vaccination

appointments for ages 5+ per CDC guidelines.

Kinney Pharmacists know that in general, children tend to

need more care when receiving shots than adults do. It can be

a bit scary for them. Kinney’s goal is to make pediatric vaccination

appointment(s) as easy and pleasant as possible for

both children and their parents and caregivers by offering:

1. Family appointments: Parents can schedule an appointment

for up to three children at once.

2. Dedicated afterschool appointment times, and longer

appointments to ensure that children have time to adjust and

feel more comfortable.

3. Optional “Buzzy the Vaccine Bee” experience (free of

charge). Buzzy is a bee-shaped device that applies vibration

and cold to numb the area and helps take the sting out of the

shot.

4. Fun distraction activities as well as a small post-shot treat.

• • •

hence the time when the Yin is more demanded. Appropriate

sleep requires a sufficient amount of that Yin aspect of the

body. Maintaining a steady body temperature is attributed to a

balance of Yin and Yang. A hot flash is considered a sudden

rising of Yang, or warmth, which is typically due to a deficiency

of Yin. (Our Western minds may equate deficiency of

Yin to decline of estrogen.) Like on a balance scale, when one

object gets lighter, the opposing object rises. This imbalance

of Yin and Yang is another way of understanding the various

symptoms of menopause.

COOLING THE FIRE

When symptoms of imbalance present, Chinese Medicine

employs acupuncture, herbs, and foods to help regulate Yin

and Yang in the body. By stimulating specific points with very

fine acupuncture needles, the cooling aspect can be nourished

in order to subdue the sudden, excessive warming. Certain

combinations of Chinese herbs can have the same effect. The

standard Yin strengthening formula that is commonly used

today was originally written 900 years ago and has been used

regularly since. These cooling, or Yin supportive, foods are

also suggested to reduce the intensity of menopausal symptoms:

Fruits Vegetables Proteins

Apples Asparagus Eggs

Bananas Peas Kidney beans

Pears Spinach Milk

Lemons Tomatoes Pork

Watermelon Yams Tofu

If you’re struggling with uncomfortable menopausal symptoms,

you may explore by increasing some of these foods in

your daily diet and see if your symptoms calm down. There

are Western herbs to investigate as well that are known to

regulate hormone levels.

The challenges of menopause can be disabling at times, but

do typically have an end point even if untreated. By using the

tools and understanding of Chinese Medicine, we can surely

make this life transition a smoother one.

Planned Parenthood of

Northern New England

Receives 2021 Press Ganey

Guardian of Excellence

Award®

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)

announced it has been named a 2021 Guardian of Excellence

Award® winner by Press Ganey, the national leader in health

care consumer and workforce engagement. Press Ganey recognizes

PPNNE as a top-performing health care organization,

achieving the 95th percentile or above for performance in

patient experience, out of more than 20,000 medical practices.

The Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award® is a preeminent,

competitive achievement for leading health care

organizations. Presented annually, the award applauds hospitals

and health systems that consistently sustained performance

in the top 5% of all Press Ganey clients.

“Press Ganey is honored to recognize Planned Parenthood

of Northern New England as one of the nation’s leaders in

patient experience,” said Patrick T. Ryan, chairman and chief

executive officer, Press Ganey. “This award reflects an

unwavering commitment to earn the trust and loyalty of

patients throughout unimaginable challenges. We are humbled

by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s

incredible efforts, and their ability to adapt to imperatives of

COVID-19 on top of the increasing demand for consumerism

in health care.”

“This award highlights what our patients have known all

along — that our staff provide the highest quality reproductive

and sexual health care services,” said Kai Williams, Vice

President of Health Care Delivery, PPNNE. “We thank Press

Ganey for the recognition, as well as our patients for entrusting

us with your care.”

On their satisfaction surveys, PPNNE patients said:

• “PPNNE is the model of what health care should be.”

• “I was treated so well when I came to Planned Parenthood…

Thank you so much for taking care of me, Planned Parenthood.

I will definitely be recommending you to others.”

• “I have never felt so comfortable in a place. I never felt a

sense of any judgement and the compassion was unmatched

to any other doctors.”

• “The staff here are so amazing. I honestly can’t even put into

words how wonderful a service they do.”

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, PPNNE

began offering telehealth services to patients at all its health

centers, in addition to offering in-person services when necessary,

as another innovative strategy to help minimize disruptions

to care. As other primary care providers closed or

offered limited availability, PPNNE was able to respond and

provide time-sensitive primary care either in person or via

telehealth. By remaining open and available to see patients for

primary care and sexual and reproductive health care needs,

PPNNE reduced the burden for COVID-19 providers.

Press Ganey pioneered the health care performance

improvement movement 35 years ago. Today Press Ganey

offers an integrated suite of solutions that enable enterprise

transformation across the patient journey. Delivered through a

cutting-edge digital platform built on a foundation of data

security, Press Ganey solutions address safety, clinical excellence,

patient experience, and workforce engagement. The

company works with more than 41,000 health care facilities in

its mission to reduce patient suffering and enhance caregiver

resilience to improve the overall safety, quality, and experience

of care.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)

is the largest sexual and reproductive health care provider in

northern New England. In FY21, PPNNE served more than

34,000 patients, and provided $5.4 million worth of free and

discounted health care.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH

To be the best, it takes more than just the training and expertise to diagnose and treat patients. It takes heart. Providing quality

healthcare in a community setting is what it’s all about, and we take pride in making our patients and their families feel at ease.

We’re committed to providing the care, the service and the respect you deserve.

Letter to the Editor

The Line 3 pipeline has been far from the minds of most

Vermonters. It’s time we took notice. The new and wider Line

3, designed to carry Canadian tar-sands oil roughly a thousand

miles from Edmonton, Canada, to the headwaters of the

Mississippi River, will have double the capacity of its predecessor.

Tar-sands require more fossil fuel to extract and transport

than conventional oil, and when burned, will add still

more CO2 to our atmosphere.

The pipeline, which is likely to emit between 35 and 193

million tons of CO2 annually, (the equivalent of 38 million

more cars on our roads) is prone to spills and will have a

devastating effect on indigenous Canadian communities.

By Marcie Hambrick, PhD, MSW, Director of Child

Sexual Abuse Prevention, Prevent Child Abuse Vermont

There was a sharp decline in reports of child abuse during

the pandemic, which indicated that some abuse was likely

going unreported as children’s contact with teachers was

affected by shut downs and remote learning. It has been an

unprecedented time of stress for families struggling to remain

healthy, afford basic expenses, and care for children at home

for extended periods. Additionally, children have had more

screen time for learning and recreation. These factors have

increased the risk of children experiencing sexual abuse.

Prior to the pandemic, one in four girls and one in 13 boys

were experiencing this trauma, an alarming rate. Many might

not know that this type of trauma has lifelong health and mental

health detriments such as:

• cancer

• hypertension

• heart disease

• depression

• substance use disorders

• and relationship problems.

Most incidences of child sexual abuse are preceded by a

period of grooming. Groomers are skilled at building trust

with families, organizations, or children to get access. You can

prevent this kind of harm by learning the signs of grooming:

• telling children adult content stories or jokes

• insisting that children give hugs or kisses even when the

child seems reluctant

• seeking one to one time with one particular child

• not allowing children their desired privacy

On Being Thankful

By G. E. Shuman

November is a month, here in the

north, of settling in, of staying put,

and of thinking thoughts of the

soon-coming winter. For me, any spare

time in October was spent doing the

chores which make November’s settling in possible, like getting

air conditioners put away, leaky doors fixed, and windows

locked up tight in this hundred-plus year-old home of

ours.

Leaves from our two huge maples are faithful to cover the

lawn each autumn, and always get raked away, just before the

rakes, themselves, get put away and replaced by snow shovels

under the carport. Each year I spend some time making sure

the snow blower still starts, and is greased up, fueled up, and

ready for the weather to come. I don’t mind doing these chores

that make my home as efficient and comfortable as possible

when the harsh weather really hits.

I always get a bit contemplative at this tucked-in holiday

season, especially, it seems, in the past few years. This old

house is not full of family and their belongings as it once was.

Sometimes that is a difficult thing for me to think about.

I tend to be something of a night owl and am thankful for

the chance to fill some late evening hours with writing to you,

dear readers. So, thank you for easing those hours, and for the

chance to express a few thoughts that many of us ‘northerners,’

even though we may be strangers, likely still share.

Even now, as I sit here in silence, it

is cold outside the windows of this

house on the hill, and it is very dark

out there. The winds of one more late

fall evening beat against the aging

glass panes, but fortunately, those

winds have always stayed on the

outside of this place. For this I am

thankful. Indeed, it is quite warm in

here, and cozy, tonight. The furnace

works well, and there is enough fuel,

although, sometimes, I still light the

fireplace as I did when the kids were

young, just because.

All this contemplation is not a sad

thing to me, but is, sometimes, a

The Biden administration has warned repeatedly of

impending climate collapse but has yet to take a stand against

Line 3. And while we in Vermont have so far been spared the

worst effects of global heating, we won’t be for long. Please

urge the Biden administration to divest from fossil fuels and

shift radically toward renewables. Our lives and those of our

children depend on it.

Pandemic Creates New Challenges to Preventing Child Sexual Abuse

• • •

• allowing children to break rules

• asking children to keep secrets

If we see other adults crossing boundaries with children, we

have a number of ways we can respond. We can let the person

who has crossed a boundary know that we don’t like that kind

of behavior. This does not have to be confrontational, because

all of us have crossed a boundary without meaning to in our

lives. We can have empathy that the person may genuinely not

know that their behavior is not optimal. We can suggest a better

way of behaving around children, and then watch to see if

they take our advice. If the behavior is repetitive or escalating,

we may report to a supervisor in a work context or let a caring

parent or caregiver know of our concerns. Certainly, people

who cross boundaries with children, for whatever reason,

should not have alone time with children. We can ask our

organization to have policies that discourage or prohibit one

to one time with children as a transparency measure. We can

encourage open communication in our families and communities

about safe practices as well.

The good news is that child sexual abuse is preventable! We

can work together to keep children safe from boundary crossing

and harm. If adults take responsibility to address concerning

behavior from other adults or older youth, children will

have homes, neighborhoods, schools, and sports that are safe

and promote their well-being!

chance for reflection on the things my wife and I have done

this year, and, reaching back further, the things we have done

throughout all the years that we have lived in this place.

(Obviously, without her, there would be no ‘we,’ and likely, by

now, not even a ‘me.’) We were so blessed to raise five tremendously

talented children in this old place, for which I am,

truly, thankful. Those five amazing people are as diverse as

any five children could ever be, and I would still do anything

at all for any one of them.

I have been, truly and unquestionably, very blessed. Having

a beautiful, faithful, Christian wife, wonderful children and

grandchildren, and a warm home to share with them all makes

for quite a life. What more could a man ask for?

I am not at all sure why the words that have assembled on

my computer screen this evening have done so as they have.

When I write, that is often the case. I think, tonight, it is just

because I cannot help but tell you that I am very thankful for

my life, and for the people in it; for what I have, and for what

I have had. I hope you feel the same way about your life, too.

Unless you are a member of my family, or of my small

group of friends, I do not know anything about your beliefs.

In any case, I will let you know mine. I believe very much in

God, in His Son Jesus, in our nation, and in family. I also

believe it is important to recognize and to be grateful for, all

that we have in the cornucopia of a country that we share,

especially in this contemplative, settled-in time of year.

I hope you will take a few minutes,

as the holidays approach, not to stop

and smell the roses, as there are few

roses outside right now, but to stop and

sense the fullness of what your life is,

and of what you have experienced, so

far. And, in a word, to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Governor Scott,

We just slept through our 26th night here at the State House

steps. Last we left you, it was our 20th night. We have just

listened to your press conference. Don’t you hear your constituents,

public health experts and service providers when

they say that you need to house the folks that are on the

street? We were thrilled to find out that the Biden

Administration has announced that they would continue the

federal reimbursement through April 1st. Governor, you are

holding an essential key to ensuring the survival and health of

over 1000 Vermonters as well as slowing the spread of

COVID in all of our communities, this is the moment for you

to use it.

Since we last left you, we have slept through several nights

in the low twenties. As we have expressed before, we have a

lot of gear. We have hand warmers and lots of cold weather

sleeping pads and sleeping bags. We are layered in warm

clothing and dry clothing. People bring us warm meals.

Brenda has a home to go back to and even still, we have been

cold. There has been more than one night that Josh has wondered

if we would be ok. Most prominently, on Saturday

night, at 21 degrees, Brenda woke up and lied awake from

11pm to 3am, with tears in her eyes because she was thinking

about who might freeze to death that night. She could feel the

cold on her face and knew that she was not comfortable without

all three cold weather bags and gear. We may not know,

who did or did not make it that night, but easily someone may

not have. In just four weeks we have felt the decline of our

health in many different ways. This morning in a meeting,

Brenda said to a shelter director, “I was always empathetic to

this, but, I really can’t believe that we let people live this

way.”

Governor, when we heard you say that you disagree that

people are slipping through the cracks who do qualify for the

program and then that you don’t agree that it is immoral for

folks to be on the streets, that just does not make sense to us.

First we know with 100% certainty that folks are slipping

through the cracks. We run a daily clinic and just 200 feet

African Queen (1951)

★★★★

I

like a good love story as much as the next guy, I think.

That said, most romantic movies don’t work for me. Too

often, the characters we are supposed to care about are

young and great looking. Since we are not young and have

never been great looking, it’s hard to relate to them.

There isn’t much drama in whether Ryan Gosling and

Rachel McAdams stay together since they both could just

walk outside and clear their throat and find a new relationship

anytime they want.

Come to think of it, maybe I don’t like love stories all that

much.

I did like “African Queen” more than I was

expecting, though.

“African Queen” is a wonderfully acted

romance and a unique World War I flick. I was

very impressed.

The story begins in German East Africa (present

day Tanzania, I think) in 1914. Katherine

Hepburn is Rose Sayer, a 40-something British

missionary.

When the Great War begins, the Germans start

to get seriously villainous. One day, colonial

Krauts storm into Rose’s village, burn down all

the dwellings, and march all the locals away.

Rose is alone but unafraid. She goes off with

the only English-speaker she knows: Charlie

Allnut (Humphrey Bogart). Charlie is a happy-golucky

drunkard whose only possession is a rickety

boat called the African Queen.

Charlie is willing to protect Rose. But he is horrified

when he hears that her plan is to take his

boat down a dangerous river to attack a much

larger German naval vessel.

The surprising thing about “The African Queen” is that the

plot hinges on the leading lady planning a vicious act of terrorism.

Legendary director John Huston allows us to root for

her by making every German character ludicrously evil. I’m

pretty sure the film was less popular in Munich than

Montpelier.

Humphrey Bogart won his only Oscar for “The African

Queen.” Some say that this was a kind-of lifetime achievement

award given to a fading legend who wasn’t in the best of

health.

I think that’s hogwash. Bogart won because this was the

from your office there is a marine, a republican, a combat

veteran, who was exited from the program in October and

qualifies. Last week, legal aid helped get in a woman named

Colby and her partner into the motels who qualified, but were

denied into the program. We have been helping a man named

James, who after two weeks of being asked to leap unleapable

hurdles gave up. He qualifies. We are helping a woman who

has stage 3 cancer and has been denied and another with 17

month old and has been denied. That is just a small sample of

the people WE have helped, it doesn’t scratch the surface of

the stories that we have heard and assisted with. In your

hometown of Berlin there are 17 folks at least living in a

Price Chopper parking lot. Here in Montpelier there are 50

people living on the street. We know that the majority exited

in July are on the street or in the woods now. That is not disputable,

it is a fact. We know that people who qualify are

being denied, the majority are being denied. That is not disputable,

it is a fact. We can lower that bar and go back to pre

July 2020 rules and allow folks back in. There are new covid

numbers, new information and new assurance of money. It is

time now to pivot.

85 faith leaders have sent you a letter urging you to expand

the program. The leadership in the senate and house has

urged the same. You asked reporters for their data, you asked

us for where we found capacity, you have asked public health

experts for their information, but you do all of this without

meeting with any of us. You handicap yourself by refusing to

meet with folks that disagree with you. Strong leadership

means surrounding yourself with diverse views and opinions.

It means being able to pivot when you learn that you were

wrong or new information. You said before that you did not

want to turn on a program you had to turn off in mid winter.

You now know you can keep it on through the spring. This is

an easy yes. Right now you can do the right thing for

Vermonters. We are asking you to do just that. Until then, see

you on the State House Steps.

Sincerely,

Brenda Siegel and Josh Lisenby

Of the State House Steps

finest performance of his career. Charlie is Bogart’s most

relatable character: talkative but shy, masculine but insecure.

When Charlie and Rose get together, it is beautiful and lifeaffirming.

Due to the amazing acting, it truly felt like this was

their first time.

You see Rose’s confidence and self-esteem grow. You see

apathetic Charlie find meaning. At first, Charlie thinks Rose’s

plan is pointless suicide. After he falls in love, Charlie is

delighted to give his life for Rose’s crazy cause.

I guess the truth is that I don’t like good love stories. I like

great love stories. “The African Queen” is one of the best.

A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO THE WORLD

Holiday Flavors

The holidays and cookies

just go together, from

platters at Thanksgiving

all the way until leaving

cookies and milk out for

Santa on Christmas Eve.

According to NPR, the Dutch are responsible

for cookies (thanks, guys!). During the

Victorian era, hospitality demanded hostesses

and hosts with the most would offer visitors

something — like cookies — to eat. Parents

of the time would leave cookies and milk out

for Santa because that’s exactly what they’d

set out for visiting children. It was a way of

extending the magic of Christmas.

CHRISTMAS COOKIES

Recipe is from Williams Sonoma.

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 egg yolks

4 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons almond extract

cu our

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

Cornucopia of Cookies

ICING

1 cup confectioners sugar

1 drop fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

1 tablespoon milk, or as needed

Sanding sugar for decorating

DIRECTIONS

1. In a bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter

and sugar together until well combined and

creamy, about two minutes. Add the eggs

and egg yolks and continue beating until

thoroughly combined, then beat in the vanilla

and almond extracts.

n erte ol ift togeter te our

ing oer n lt lol te our

mixture to the butter mixture, about a cup

at a time. Mix, using a wooden spoon or the

stand mixture on low speed, until just combined.

Beware of overmixing.

3. Transfer the dough to a work surface and

divide it into four equal portions. Shape each

into ll ten tten te ll into i

Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at

least an hour and up to overnight.

4. Preheat the oven to 350 0 degrees

5. Roll out a dough disk to about 1/4 inch.

Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes from the

dough. Arrange the shapes on baking sheets,

spacing them about an inch apart. Gather up

n refill cr n cut out ore cooie

Repeat with the other dough disks.

6. Bake the cookies until golden at the edges,

about 6-8 minutes. Transfer the cookies to

racks to cool completely.

7. Make the icing but stirring together confectioners

sugar, lemon juice and corn syrup

in a small bowl. It should be thick. Whisk in

the milk a few drops at a time until you reach

the desired consistency. For outlining, leave

the icing thicker. To cover the cookies, make

it more liquid.

8. Decorate the cookies as desired using a

pastry bag with the appropriate tip.

Tantalizing Tarts

A tart is a smaller, shallow pie with no

top crust. Typically, tarts have a crown-like

edge rather than the fluted edges of a

traditional pie.

Christmas Cake

It’s not quite the holidays without at least one towering confection

on the table, covered with clouds of frosting.

With a little practice, you can turn out delicious and gorgeous

Christmas cakes that will steal the show at any holiday

party.

THINGS TO PAY ATTENTION TO

It seems obvious, but when you set out to bake a cake,

follow the recipe. Make sure you have all the ingredients

on hand ahead of time, measure carefully and properly, and

follow directions as to the temperature of the ingredients.

If it says room-temperature butter, use room-temperature

butter. Baking is just as much a science as it is an art, and the

temperature and order of your ingredients make a difference

How to create a durable gingerbread house

Gingerbread cookies and houses are one of the many

symbols of the holiday season, alongside Christmas trees

and twinkling lights. In fact, few confections symbolize the

holidays more so than gingerbread.

Many a child (or a child at heart) has spent hours carefully

tring to crete ecortie gingerre oue ltoug

gingerbread recipes span various cultures, gingerbread houses

originte in t centur ern e fir tle nel

and Gretel” helped solidify the popularity of gingerbread,

which became part of Christmas traditions.

Even though gingerbread houses can be fun to make, there’s

no denying it can be exacting work — especially for those

who strive for perfection. Prepackaged kits attempt to take

some of the guesswork out of the equation, but those who are

crafting from scratch can employ these tips as they build their

gingerbread houses.

handling the house, says Beddall. Work in stages so that individual

items can be decorated and allowed to dry. Then the

walls can be put together, followed by the roof pieces.

A Plethora of

Puddings

On this side of the pond, a

pudding is usually a sweet, milkbased

dessert that’s similar to

custards or mousse.

In other countries puddings can describe both sweet

and savory dishes. We’re not concerned with those here,

because holidays mean treats and treats mean sweets.

Puddings in the States can also refer to bread puddings

and rice puddings, all great choices for your holiday

table.

PRALINE FRENCH TOAST BREAD PUDDING

Recipe is from Epicurious.

1 pound of challah or brioche

8 extra-large eggs

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

salt and nutmeg.

4. Pour over the bread in the dish, lifting the bread up

Fall Foods Abundant for Wildlife

Vermont Fish and Wildlife is reporting that several important

fall foods for wildlife are abundant this year following

last year when many foods were lacking.

Fish and Wildlife staff survey mast stands around the state

each fall season, and last year they documented that many

important berry and nut species were lacking which helped

cause a dramatic increase in the number of bears harvested in

the hunting season due to the bears searching widely for alternative

foods including corn.

Results for this year are markedly different, with most species

of nuts and berries available to wildlife and some, such as

apples, choke cherries and mountain ash berries being very

abundant. Acorn numbers were the highest in twenty years.

It was a good year in most areas for beech nuts, for although

many of the beech stands surveyed contained abundant nuts,

other stands contained few or none.

“The great variation in beechnut numbers between sites that

were sampled was a surprise to us as we had predicted it to be

an excellent year for beechnut production following such poor

numbers last year,” said State Wildlife Biologist Jaclyn

Comeau who was recently chosen to fill the position of Black

Bear Project Leader.

Hunters Asked to Help Collect Deer Teeth

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is asking hunters

for help in a statewide initiative to gather more biological

data on the state’s deer population. Hunters who get a deer

during the November 13-28 regular deer season are asked to

provide an incisor tooth from their deer. Tooth envelopes are

available at all deer reporting stations.

Biologists are collecting middle incisor teeth from all regular

season bucks to evaluate regional differences in ages and

antler characteristics as well as to help estimate population

size, growth rate, health, and mortality rates. Each tooth will

be cross sectioned to accurately determine the deer’s age, and

the results will be posted on the Fish and Wildlife website next

spring.

“Knowing the ages of harvested deer is critically important,

and more information allows us to make better management

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

project leader. “To produce accurate population estimates,

and to better assess our current management strategies, we

really need to get teeth from as many bucks as possible.”

St. Louis to Leave Position at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

Devil’s Bowl Speedway will bid farewell to its director of

media and marketing after 10 years, as Justin St. Louis leaves

his position to begin a new career. St. Louis will start full-time

work outside of the motorsports industry on December 1.

Mike and Alayne Bruno hired St. Louis in October 2011,

just prior to their purchase of Devil’s Bowl Speedway, to help

transition into the new era of stock car racing at the historic

Vermont track. St. Louis had previously worked for the

American-Canadian Tour and the Thunder Road, Bear Ridge,

Airborne, and Riverside speedways, as well as various radio,

print, and digital media outlets.

At Devil’s Bowl Speedway, St. Louis was initially responsible

for media communications and building new relationships

with competitors for the 2012 season; over time, his

duties have expanded to include marketing and sponsorships,

event planning, registration, record-keeping, announcing, and

other obligations. St. Louis juggled similar positions under

the Brunos’ leadership with Airborne Park Speedway, the

King of Dirt Racing Series, and the former Northern Modified

Challenge Series, and he also assisted with operations of

Bruno’s Towing.

“These last 10 years have been incredibly rewarding for

me,” St. Louis said. “I didn’t know Mike and Alayne before I

started working for them, but I feel that I’m part of their family.

I’ve watched their kids grow up, and I even lived at their

house for a few months. We stuck together through some hard

years, and that only made us stronger as a unit. Devil’s Bowl

is thriving right now, and I’m proud to have played a small

role in that with the entire Bruno family and the talented

people that we have had behind us.”

St. Louis will coordinate the upcoming Banquet of

Champions before officially ending his tenure at Devil’s Bowl

Speedway. He said that his personal priorities and family

responsibilities have changed over the years, and that has

made him reevaluate his time commitment and level of

involvement in racing.

“I have a different outlook now at 38 years old than I did

when I was 28,” St. Louis said. “A 60-hour work week is

pretty normal in the summer in this business. We’ve done it

for 10 years here, and I had another 12 years working in the

sport before that. My family has always supported my passion

for racing, and this decision came as a surprise to them, but I

realized a while ago that I have missed too many birthdays

and vacations, and that it’s time to reprioritize. I will still

enjoy racing as a hobby in my spare time, but I’m ready to

shift gears.”

Mike and Alayne Bruno both showed appreciation for St.

Louis and wished him well in his future endeavors.

“Justin has a young family now, and we all come to a point

in our lives where we want to do something different,” Mike

Bruno said. “That’s where Justin is at, and he wants a more

regular Monday through Friday job, which we totally understand.

It has been a great ride the last 10 years having him be

a part of what we have accomplished at Devil’s Bowl

Speedway. We wish him the best of luck and the door will

always be open for his return.”

“Justin has been a huge part of our organization, and we are

going to miss him tremendously,” Alayne Bruno said. “We

have worked side-by-side since we all began here at Devil’s

Bowl, and it will certainly feel different for us in the office and

at the track without him.”

St. Louis expressed his appreciation for the Devil’s Bowl

Speedway community including its competitors, fans, sponsors,

and a team of track officials that has been together for

many years.

“I grew up at other tracks, but Devil’s Bowl Speedway is

my home,” St. Louis said. “I didn’t know many people in this

area when I got here, but everyone welcomed me with open

arms and now I have hundreds or even thousands of friends

here whom I will love forever. I’m not going to work at

another track, because there’s nowhere I’d rather work in racing

than Devil’s Bowl.

“My position gave me the opportunity to interact with literally

every person who came to the races, and that’s something

that I never took for granted,” St. Louis continued. “No other

group of people has made me feel like I was one of them as

much as the Devil’s Bowl family, and I hope that my work

rewarded their trust in me. I’ve had so much fun, and I’m

immensely proud to be from Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West

Haven, Vermont.”

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West

Haven, Vt., four miles north of U.S. Route 4, Exit 2, and just

20 minutes from Rutland, Vt. For more information, visit

HUNTERS!

Chances are your best wildlife friend is the farmer

whose land you’ll be hunting Saturday morning.

Please mind your manners. Leave his fences

alone, close the gates and don’t drive onto his

fields. Remember your great outdoors is nothing

more than his backyard. He knows every ledge,

odd shaped tree, straight ash and best bucket

hanging maple out there. He watches over his land

day and night, making him one of the best and

cheapest game wardens the State has! So think

about him when you’re buying groceries for camp.

Take some real butter to help out the camp cook,

plenty of Cabot cheese, and a couple gallons of

Booth Brothers milk to get the boys started in the

morning. Buy dairy products with local labels and

support the farmers who have been feeding your

buck all summer. Be careful and have a good hunt

this Saturday.

Professional Pet Sitter Is Teen’s

Dream Job

DEAR PAW’S

CORNER: I read your column

about a pet sitter who

had to deal with a sick cat.

Even though it was a scary

story, I still want to be a

professional pet sitter. I’m

still in high school, but this

is a dream job for me. How

do I get started? Do I need

to be certified by a national

organization? -- Sarah, Blue Ridge, Georgia

DEAR SARAH: Pet sitting can be a rewarding career,

especially if you do the groundwork needed to really succeed

at it. You don’t need a certificate from an organization

like the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters,

but having a certificate helps prospective clients feel more

confident that you know your job and take it seriously.

Here’s a few steps to take before starting a pet sitting

business.

-- Talk to your parents about what you want to do.

Because you’re under 18, it’s important to involve them in

this decision.

-- Do some trial pet-sitting. With your parents’ permission

and supervision, pet sit for family friends or relatives.

You’ll get valuable experience and learn if you really like

doing this.

-- Join pet sitting groups on social media. You can glean

lots of useful advice from experienced pet sitters.

-- Learn about starting and running a small business. If

your high school doesn’t offer a class or a club, sign up at

a nearby community college.

-- Contact the Small Business Association (SBA.gov).

They offer free counseling services to help you get a small

business off the ground.

-- Check out some major pet sitting organizations

online. The NAPPS (https://petsitters.org) in the U.S. and

Pet Sitters International (https://www.petsit.com/) have

lots of information and advice on running a great pet-sitting

business.

Nested Tables

A table has three or four or more legs and a flat top. But

some modern designers can make furniture that is almost

unrecognizable but still serve the same purpose. Cottone

Auctions had a recent sale featuring a collection of modern

furniture, including pieces by Gianfranco Frattini (1926-

2004). He is best known as an Italian architect, but he

designed unusual furniture for Cassina and modern lamps

for many companies. He is considered an important member

of the Italian design movement of the late 1950s and

‘60s. The strange table pictured here is really a nest of four

tables designed by Frattini in the 1960s. The group is fitted

together like a jigsaw puzzle. The four tables vary in height

up to 15 inches. The hammer price for the set was $1,416.

The tables were first made by Cassina in 1966, and early

examples have sold for almost $4,000.

***

Q: I have a bisque or porcelain bride and groom wedding

cake topper that was used on my grandparents’ wedding

cake. The bride is wearing a white dress with green sprigs

on it. She has a wreath of pink roses on her head and is carrying

a bouquet of pink roses. The groom is carrying his top

hat in one hand and has his other arm linked through the

bride’s arm. The bride figurine is hollow. The back of her

skirt is embossed with the number “8942” above “Germany.”

We’d like to know more about these figures.

A: Wedding cakes were topped with bells, doves, cupid,

flowers and sometimes by glass domes in the 1890s. Bride

and groom wedding cake toppers weren’t used until the

1900s. They became popular in the 1920s. It’s possible to

date many of them from the style of the bride’s dress. You

know how old your topper is because you know the date of

your grandparents’ marriage, and cake toppers are almost

always new. It’s not possible to determine the maker since

there is no maker’s mark, just the model number and country

of origin. We’ve seen bride and groom cake toppers with

these marks selling for $40 or more.

Tips to ensure holiday road trips

are safe and stress-free

After a 2020 holiday season in which the pandemic forced the postponement or cancellation

of festivities, families are planning to get together once again in 2021. Many people will head

home for the holidays this year, and the vast majority will take to the highway to do so.

The U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics says the

Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year’s holiday periods are

among the busiest for long-distance travel. The highways

will be busy with motorists criss-crossing the country to

visit loved ones. Holiday travel may require covering a long

distance in a limited amount of time. Finding ways to be

efficient in regr to tie ngeent cn reuce tre n

improve safety.

TRAVEL AT NIGHT

If you can safely manage it, you may experience considerl

le trffic in te eening our tn uring oter

times of day. In addition, if kids are in tow, they may sleep

much of the way, helping to reduce the number of times they

ask, “Are we there yet?” Share driving responsibilities with

another person so that each driver can take a break to prevent

drowsy driving.

GET A VEHICLE MAINTENANCE CHECK

No one wants to get stranded on the side of the road with a

cr fille it gift n tret t ell ort te inetent

to have a mechanic give a vehicle a checkup prior to leaving.

Get an oil change even if it’s a little early to do so. Look at

tire tread wear and ensure that you have the right tires for the

road conditions where you’ll be headed.

PLAN YOUR ROUTE

People often rely on mobile phone or dashboard GPS

systems to get where they need to go. However, it helps to

have a general idea of the route so that if service drops out

ou cn till fin our cout out ret to or ccet

able restaurants online prior to leaving so you have a plan for

making stops in safe areas.

STOCK THE CAR

While presents may be taking up valuable real estate, pack

a cooler with snacks and beverages to help reduce how many

times you need to get off the highway. Also, games or other

forms of entertainment can keep children occupied on long

trips.

SLOW DOWN IN INCLEMENT WEATHER

The holiday meal can be reheated if you’re late, so don’t

feel compelled to speed or drive erratically when the weather

is stormy. It’s not worth the risk of getting into an accident

organization that represents all travelers, also warns that

quick storms that pop up after a long dry spell can immediately

make road surfaces extremely slippery. Use caution.

Planning and preparation are essential to getting home

safely this holiday season.
