Statement on Governor’s New Guidance on

Expansion of GA Motel Program

“This means that lives will be saved this year.

That can not be understated.” said Siegel. “There

are some areas of serious concern and we will

be rolling out more details about those concerns

over the coming week.”

When we announced that we would be staying

on the State House steps, on October 14th, the

barrier to utilizing the GA Motel program was so

high that many people, even those who ualified,

could not get in. As a result we set our bar high

on demands and said from the start that we would

not compromise on people’s lives. On November

10th, we walked off the State House Steps exactly

twenty-eight days after we first announced

that we would stay.

We have shown that together Vermonters do

have a voice. We can make the change we want to

see. Thank you to all who provided support and

voice in helping to make sure your community

members and neighbors are safe this winter and

hopefully beyond.

We are proud of the work that we accomplished

so far with impacted voices and needs at

the forefront. Together we put a bright spotlight

on this issue. The nearly daily press and consistent

chronicle of this experience highlighted this

issue in a way that rarely happens. The humanization

and watching so many Vermonters, so

many of the Governor’s constituents, speaking

out was powerful. We are proud to have started

a daily clinic to support folks in getting services

and help them access legal services if their rights

were being violated. That clinic will continue

going forward. Anyone with any need for support

accessing services can call between 3 and 5

each day at 802 490 4931. Through that clinic we

helped several Vermonters access GA Motels and

other services that they ualified for, this wor

will continue.

We met with Commissioner Brown and were

invited to the GA Working Group and will be participating

in that group going forward. We met

with the Speaker and Pro tem as well as the Lieutenant

Governor who all came out in support of

the full expansion of the program following our

meetings. We continue to be disappointed that the

Governor himself is not willing to meet with us

and Lived Experience Experts.

The administration did meet our demand to

end it’s practice of asking Vermonters to trade

their shelter for money. In addition, another nearly

600 Vermonters were prevented from being

exited in October.

And now we have succeeded in the big ask. As

of November 22nd any Vermonter experiencing

houselessness or homelessness will have access

to the GA Motel program and will be safer from

freezing to death, COVID, and long term health

impacts.

While this is not all of our demands, pivotal

change has been made.

We remain concerned about several rules and

areas of uncertainty. We have outlined our three

top concerns below:

1. People are cold today and the program should

begin immediately and end with transitioning

folks to long term housing. It is not practical policy

to end the program March 1st when the federal

funds are there and the legislature allocated significant

funds to address this ols could easily

stay until transitioned into long term housing.

2. Several of the rules create harsh and unusually

cruel punishments that could leave a person or

family to freee to death or be caused significant

harm and destabilization and must be addressed.

Rules in general should not be designed in a punitive

manner, but rather trauma informed and with

an effort to generate the best outcomes for the individual.

There are several rules that we believe

must be overhauled to meet these guidelines.

3. We have concerns about the income guidelines

as we have met several middle income Vermonters

now living in their cars but can’t afford to live

in motels. We believe that being unhoused should

be the bar.

Two of our groups demands have not yet been

met and we are actively working to address them:

1. We must eliminate the 84 day rule.

2. The administration must immediately give notice

to the public and the impacted communities

about their options and their rights as well as a

clear guide to the rules that reads much like the

landlord tenant handbook. Impacted communities

must also know where to go if their rights are

being violated. The Governor and legislature as

well must come up with a cohesive and coherent

plan that will ensure folks are transitioned to long

term housing and not exited to the street.

Going forward we will continue the work that

we have begun on the steps of the State House

by keeping our clinic and hotline open for folks.

We also are beginning to travel around the state

and assess needs. We have already set up meetings

with legislative leaders in order to begin to

work on a plan to end homelessness. A plan that

our small advocacy group has been working on

all along and will present to the public very soon,

now that legislators, service providers and advocates

have been afforded space from trying to just

keep folks from dying. A position that none of us

should have been in since we had the resources to

do better all along.

“We will no longer be sleeping on the statehouse

steps but we will NOT be leaving the State

House completely,” Lisenby said. “There is still

a lot of work, many hard conversations and much

effort needed to help address Vermont’s ongoing

housing crisis. We have let this go unchecked for

decades and now we are reaping what we sowed.”

t is neither humane nor fiscally responsible to

not solve this problem. We simply must.

inally, we are prepared to come bac to the

State House steps, if these walls go back up. We

are prepared to keep speaking out along side

folks experiencing homelessness and UNTIL we

transition folks into long term housing. We have

no choice but to do just that.

If we end up again where folks are on the

street, we will see you on the State House steps.

VSAC Receives $2.9 Million Grant to Provide

Educational Opportunities for Adult Learners

The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation

(VSAC), Vermont’s statewide organization

supporting education for Vermonters

beyond high school, announced that it has

received a significant five-year funding etension

for its Educational Opportunity Center,

which helps Vermont adult learners connect

with college and workforce training.

The $2.9 million federal grant allows the

EOC to continue its work through 2026. The

EOC was founded in 1991 and has helped

more than 60,000 adult Vermonters over the

last three decades.

“We talk about education as the ‘great

equalizer,’” said Scott Giles, VSAC President

and CEO. “Thinking about those 60,000

people, and the milestones they’ve been able

to achieve in their lives – the families they’ve

grown, the businesses they’ve started, and the

communities they’ve strengthened – really

makes that truth hit home. I’m so proud of the

work that VSAC’s counseling team does every

day, and I’m grateful to the hard work of

our Congressional delegation that will allow

that work to continue,” he said.

Governor Phil Scott stressed the importance

of continual workforce training, adding

Rootstock Publishing, a

December 7th release of I

Could Hardly Keep From

Laughing: An Illustrated

Collection of Vermont Humor

by former legislators

Don Hooper and Bill Mares,

with a foreword by prizewinning

political cartoonist

Jeff Danziger.

With snappy cartoons by

Don Hooper and illuminating prose by Bill

Mares, I Could Hardly Keep from Laughing

is a potpourri of art and words documenting

how Vermont humor has evolved over 150

years. While re-telling some treasured stories,

the authors limelight more than a dozen modern

humorists in this exuberant, charming,

and affectionate collection.

In early 2018, Hooper asked Mares what

his next book would be. Quick as lightning,

Mares said, “a history of Vermont humor, but

only if you’ll do it with me!” Mares set out to

collect old and new stories but with Hooper’s

cartoons, Mares argued, the book would be

an anthology of something current, something

loving and passionate, and something

original. Hooper set to work sharpening his

colored pencils. After a couple of years the

work was done. To paraphrase the Vermont

boy who found the horse no one else could,

“We thought if we were to write a book what

it would be like, and it was, and we did,” said

Mares.

Don ooper, of roofield, Vermont, is

a Vermont educator, environmental activist,

and political figure e

served in the Vermont House

of Representatives for four

terms, and as Secretary of

State of Vermont for one.

He received degrees from

Harvard and lives with his

partner Allison, co-founder

of Vermont Creamery.

Bill Mares, of Burlington,

Vermont, is a former journalist,

state representative,

and high school teacher. He

has authored or co-authored

18 books on subjects ranging from the US

Marines to desert travel, from war memorials

to economic democracy, from brewing beer to

beekeeping, and wrote over 200 commentaries

for Vermont Public Radio. He lives with

his wife of 50 years, Chris Hadsel.

I Could Hardly Keep from Laughing is

available for pre-order with Rootstock Publishing

Advance Praise

“What a delightful respite from the woes

of Washington to read this quirky treasury of

humor in Vermont! Mares catalogues known

and novel tales of Vermont’s well-known and

unknown, while Hooper brightens the pages

with over 100 cartoons that will bring chuckles

to all but the grouchiest.” —U.S. Congressman

Peter Welch

that it’s a critical time for growth – both for

Vermont and for Vermonters.

“Working to grow Vermont’s workforce

and expanding workforce development opportunities

have been top priorities for my

administration,” said Governor Scott. “This

will be even more critical as we work out of

the pandemic and rebuild, and programs like

this will go a long way in helping Vermonters

develop the tools they need to succeed.”

Merrilyn Tatarczuch-Koff, VSAC Director

of Vermont’s EOC, said the program works

with some 1,600 Vermonters each year who

do not have bachelor’s degrees and wish to

continue their education. According to Tatarczuch-Koff,

EOC counselors, working with

numerous community partners, can help their

clients, either virtually, by phone, or in person.

Seven statewide counselors offer one-on-one

counseling in the way of career exploration,

identifying educational and professional certification

programs, and connecting with funding

sources such as scholarships and grants.

Vermont Folklife Center Partners with

Local Career/Tech Centers to Promote

Cross-Cultural Understanding and Develop

Storytelling Skills Among Students

This fall, the Vermont Folklife Center

(VFC) is partnering with Burlington Technical

Center and Windham Regional Career

Center to create opportunities for students to

produce and present media projects on issues

and topics that matter to them and their communities.

Vermont Voices, to be carried out over two

academic years, will pilot how to integrate

humanities-centered training and skills practice

at career and technical education (CTE)

centers. It will focus on Burlington and Brattleboro,

areas that serve proportionally significant

student populations

The program focuses on three major objectives:

• Design a skills-based learning centered on

community inquiry and storytelling media for

career and technical education centers.

• Develop a media collection, Vermont Voices,

that becomes a legacy for and by young

people that will be accessible online for future

learning.

• Train emerging generations of communitybased,

civically engaged leaders skilled in

collaborative, participatory research.

In collaboration with Jason Raymond

(Digital Media Lab) at Burlington Technical

Center, and Brandon Conrad (Professional

English/Communication) and Jesse Kreitzer

(Filmmaking & Digital Editing) at Windham

Regional Career Center, VFC education staff

will prepare students to conduct ethnographic

interviews and create digital projects that will

contribute to intergenerational conversations.

To support the creation and preservation of

these projects, the VFC will launch Vermont

Voices, a digital platform dedicated to featuring

work and projects by Vermont youth,

reflecting their interests about the world they

live in and issues that matter to them.

Students will work with VFC staff to arrange

interviews, create additional media, and

identify and incorporate archival materials to

inspire multigenerational conversations about

Vermont. Vermont Voices will help students

develop key interpretive and technical skills

while building individual and shared knowledge

about cultural identity and social histories

of Vermont.

Representing a rare opportunity to build

shared connections to our personal histories,

the program gives students the chance to engage

with and record individuals’ stories as a

gateway to developing lifelong approaches

of collaboration and reciprocity, crucial for

building a more just, peaceful, and sustainable

world.

This two-year pilot program is generously

supported by the Canaday Family Charitable

Trust.

For over 35 years, the Vermont Folklife

Center has produced exhibits, publications

and audio and video documentaries, stored in

our archive, that share the lives and cultural

heritage of Vermonters. A central mission is

to systematically document contemporary

perspectives on cultural, racial and class diversity

as epressed and reflected on by individuals

and communities. The VFC’s archive

collections are an invaluable resource not

only for Vermonters, but also for the advancement

of humanities-based inquiry, creative

practice and community building.

The Vermont Folklife Center seeks to

broaden, strengthen and deepen our understanding

of Vermont and the surrounding region;

to assure a repository for our collective

cultural memory; and to strengthen our communities

by building connections among the

diverse peoples of our state.

Listen Up Project Musical Available

to Livestream During “Vermont

Week of Listening” December 7 to 12

Did you miss the groundbreaking tour of the Listen Up

Project musical, inspired, written and performed by Vermont

teens o worries ou can watch a livestream of the film shot

during the Shelburne, Vermont performances this summer during

a special “Week of Listening” from December 7 to 12,

2021. For the low cost of $10 per screen, you can watch with

as many people as you like. The cast and creative team will

also host two free Q&A sessions via Zoom during the week.

“Because of COVID, we had to limit the number of tour

dates we could schedule during our summer tour,” said Bess

O’Brien, producer of the musical and lead for the multi-year

“listening phase,” where she and her team collected teen stories

and impressions for the piece.

“We know not everyone who wanted to see the show was

able to do so and we’re excited to offer another opportunity.

We’re hoping high school classrooms, social service agencies,

health care organizations, libraries, churches, families and other

groups will be able to watch the show together or convene

afterward to discuss the content,” she added.

The Week of Listening will offer the following show times:

• Tuesday, December 7 at 7 p.m.

• Wednesday, December 8 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

• Thursday, December 9 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

• Friday, December 10 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

• Saturday, December 11 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

• Sunday, December 12 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Members of the cast and creative team will do a free Q&A

session via Zoom webinar on Saturday, December 11 and Sunday,

December 12—both at 8:45.

Reactions to the summer tour were overwhelmingly positive.

“I was absolutely blown away by the insights and wisdom

of our youth, and the frank exploration of the lived experiences

and emotional roller coaster ride called adolescence that

Listen Up provided me,” said Mark Levine, Commissioner

of the Vermont Department of Health. “Most importantly,

the musical effectively catalyzes the important conversations

teens, their parents, school mentors, and communities need to

be having about the complex issues facing teens, society, and

the planet today.”

Peter Welch, Vermont’s U.S. Congressman noted, “It is so

important to acknowledge the reality that young people face

… and to give them a platform to imagine a better world and

the role they play in it. Art can be so much more liberating and

empowering than politics.”

“As a legislator, as a mom of a teen and a tween, as a former

teacher,” expressed Rebecca Balint, Senate President Pro

Tempore, “I have a better understanding of my state and my

community after seeing this show. It’s a roadmap for what we

need to get done together to serve the youth of our state. Attending

a performance of the Listen Up Project was one of the

highlights of my summer. These kids brought their hearts and

their stories to the stage. They were so raw and so real with all

of us in the audience.”

EER, V ason hristopher

Pratt, 47, passed away on the morning of

November 6, 2021, at Berlin Meadows in

Berlin, Vt, following a 13-year battle with

multiple sclerosis.

Jason was born on July 29, 1974, in

erlin, Vermont, the son of eslie harles

ratt and Diane oan Dussault ratt e

attended Montpelier public schools and

graduated from MHS in 1992. He grew

up playing baseball coached by his dad,

skateboarding, BMX biking, playing video games, programming

on a ommodore-, and running around lie a nina

and playing outside in the elements with his friends.

From a young age, Jason devoured all the music available

to a Vermont kid in the 1980s. When he was 14, after learning

saxophone, he started playing guitar. The instrument unleashed

a superhuman talent matched by a limitless musical

curiosity. He had the will and determination to practice until

his fingers bled, and within a few years hed become a formidable

and dynamic musician.

In the mid-90s, Jason moved to Burlington, and by 1996

he was rhythm guitarist for the punk-rap band Dysfunkshun.

he group released three Ds during his tenure and toured all

over the east coast, playing shows at storied venues including

s in , and he itter End in ortland, E

Jason was a member of the Burlington music family during

a rich and creative period in the Vermont music scene. He

added a layer of smooth, danceable funk to Dysfunkshun’s punk

roots that gained the attention of the music industry worldwide,

especially with the releases of “Hi Fi Stereotype” and “You’re

Soaking In It.” His friendly demeanor won many friends, and

his impeccable playing garnered respect from local peers as well

as legends of underground music. After seeing Dysfunkshun’s

show at s, orey lover of iving olour said he had

never heard anything like it, and he “loved it!”

After Dysfunkshun disbanded in late 2002, Jason continued

to pursue his art and grow. He became interested in music production

and recording, and worked with numerous musicians

and studios around Vermont. He always continued to tweak his

beloved ender tratocaster, the rattocast, to mae

it an instrument to match his musical passion and genius. He

was an excellent sound engineer, and provided sound reinforcement

at the legendary 242 Main in Burlington for several

years for a generation of young underground bands.

After MS stole his ability to play guitar, he switched to the

ukulele, yet remained immersed in music as well as podcasting,

however and as much as he was able. Later, he spent his

time with Rubik’s cubes and decks of cards, learning complex

cube algorithms, card gaming theory/methods, tricks, and other

sleights of hand.

Jason had a powerful stage presence, but he was a kind,

smart, perceptive, and soft-spoken person who was loved by

many e was nown for his fierce self-reliance, despite the

obstacles he faced as the MS progressed. He never complained

much, and always retained his unique and memorable sense of

humor, even until the very end.

Jason was predeceased by his parents, and leaves behind his

Supporting Vaccination for Older Vermonters

It is particularly important that we protect the most vulnerable

members of our communities from COVID-19. The

pandemic has disproportionately affected older Vermonters.

With vaccination as our best protection against serious negative

outcomes from COVID-19, we are urging Vermonters

ages 65 and older to get vaccinated. Whether acting on the

decision to get an initial dose, or taking advantage of new

opportunities for a booster, accessing vaccine has never been

easier in Vermont.

In August, the Vermont Association of Area Agencies on

Aging (V4A) launched their “So, what’s stopping you?” campaign,

which shares information and resources related to vaccination

with older Vermonters. As part of this campaign, the

V4A has been promoting the following helpline and website:

Helpline: (800) 642-5119

Website: www.vaccine4vermont.com

Older Vermonters are encouraged to call the helpline or

visit the website to receive support in getting vaccinated. V4A

can answer questions and assist with resources to schedule

vaccination, including those that may need translation services.

They can also assist with resources for transportation to

a vaccination clinic or for in-home vaccination administered

by a licensed provider.

For older Vermonters who have not yet been vaccinated,

and for those who have yet to receive a booster, now is the

time. If you have encountered barriers in accessing vaccine,

please call the helpline and website above to explore resources

available to help.

V4A is an association of five non-profit Area Agencies on

Aging located throughout Vermont, including Age Well,

Central Vermont Council on Aging, Northeast Kingdom

Council on Aging, Southwest Vermont Council on Aging and

Senior Solutions.

Commonsense Reforms to Bolster Vermont’s Workforce

Workforce woes aren’t new to Vermont—but COVID-19

has made them worse. And our low unemployment rate

doesn’t tell the whole story. There are nearly 25,000 fewer

Vermonters in the workforce then there were just before

COVID-19 hit. The number of unemployed Vermonters

hasn’t changed—it’s that thousands of employed Vermonters

have left the labor market altogether, despite near record wage

growth.

Meanwhile, there are 23,000 open jobs at Vermont businesses

according to the U.S. Department of Labor. So, in

other words, there are roughly as many open jobs at mom and

pop stores, larger companies, farms, and every other type of

business in Vermont as there are people who dropped out of

the labor force.

Something is drastically wrong with that picture.

In the wake of this crisis, Vermont has an opportunity to

rebrand itself as a workforce destination. And while previous

efforts to attract workers to our state with incentives are a

great start, they don’t do enough to break down barriers to

work for those Vermonters who have already left the workforce.

So, let’s give those Vermonters the tools to find meaningful

work without the crushing hand of red tape getting in the way.

First, we should temporarily waive any and all occupational

licensing fees for low income workers, young workers,

veterans and service members (who relocate from state to

state more frequently, requiring new licenses), those recovering

from substance use disorder, those reentering the workforce

after having been incarcerated, and those who were

unemployed due to COVID-19. The last thing that the most

vulnerable Vermonters need right now is more fees and surcharges

to simply find a job.

Second, lets modernize our independent contractor laws to

recognize the growth in independent contractors choosing to

work from home. Now more than ever, remote work is

becoming a lasting reality. But Vermont’s laws on the books

make it harder to hire independent contractors who are far

more likely to work from home. They’re also more likely to

be disabled and cannot work in a traditional office environment.

By simply cutting red tape, we can make it easier for

these workers to match with Vermont businesses.

Third, we should make it easier for those who recently

The Vermont Community Foundation announced $150,000

in grants to expand Vermonters’ access to mental health and

suicide prevention care as part of the newest recovery initiative

from its VT COVID-19 Response Fund. Since it was

created in March 2020, the VT COVID-19 Response Fund has

distributed more than $10 million in grants to assist with basic

and urgent needs for Vermont’s most vulnerable, and jumpstarting

longer term recovery and resilience through the initial

five recovery initiatives announced in September 2020.

“The approaching holiday season should be a time of joy

and reunion, yet too many Vermonters—particularly our

youngest neighbors—are struggling with the stress, anxiety,

and isolation stemming from the last twenty months of pandemic,”

says Dan Smith, president and CEO of the Vermont

Community Foundation. “We designed the COVID-19 recovery

initiatives to support solutions to major challenges that

must be addressed for Vermont to improve its resilience in the

face of future disruption. As we continue to hear stories of

Vermonters in crisis, we moved quickly to include support for

mental health and suicide prevention as a sixth recovery initiative.”

Grant recipients for this round are community-based organizations

that are using evidence-based, culturally competent

mental health and suicide prevention supports and services to

serve populations put most at risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Data has shown that demand for services has skyrocketed

over the last twenty months. For example, visits to hospital

emergency departments for mental health-related issues

among youth were 66 percent higher in May 2020 than the

same month of the previous year. This competitive grant

round was designed to enhance community capacity to

address risk factors and facilitate access to care, adopt best

practices in primary and mental health care facilities, and to

provide multi-lingual and multi-modal communications to

reduce stigma in Vermont.

“The situations in Vermont’s communities, health care

facilities, and designated mental health support systems are

dire,” says Sarah Waring, vice president for grants and community

investments. “We are fortunate to have partners that

support our work on mental health and suicide prevention at

this time, because COVID-19 has shown many of the underlying

challenges and the gaps in workforce, system support,

facility space, and training, which must be addressed to meet

this new demand.”

The full list of grantees for the initial round of mental health

and suicide prevention focused grants from the VT COVID-19

Response Fund is below. Moving forward, the Community

Foundation will be continuing to work with donors and partners

to explore other strategies for getting resources to organizations

supporting mental health and suicide prevention. To

learn more, including how you can support this work, please

moved to Vermont by recognizing their work experience.

Many occupations might not have been regulated by another

state, but are regulated by Vermont. So, for example, a new

Vermonter could have worked for 20 years in an occupation

that their old state didn’t license--but because Vermont does

license it they, now have to go through all the hoops and red

tape as if they’ve never done the job before. We should recognize

these new Vermonters’ work experience and give them a

leg up.

Fourth, let’s recognize that not all folks learn the same way.

Some are better at learning through books and studying, while

others prefer hands-on learning. Right now, Vermont’s occupational

licensing laws only accommodate the first path. By

allowing Vermonters who have completed a registered

apprenticeship program to count their effort towards the educational

requirements for their field, we can help Vermonters

who prefer to learn on the job.

Fifth, let’s actually take some meaningful steps to expand

workforce housing. By cutting red tape in Act 250, easing

other permitting processes, and expanding priority housing

projects, we can—and must—increase the supply of workforce

housing in Vermont.

Finally, Vermont needs to continue to accept new Americans

and press the Biden Administration to allow more refugee

resettlement in our state. Our rich history of Italians and

French Canadians immigrating to communities like Barre and

St. Albans has formed the fabric of the cultural diversity that

defines our state, and is echoed by contemporary resettlements

in cities like Winooski. These new, prospective members

of our workforce and communities are invaluable.

We’re at a crossroads as to whether we’ll continue to bury

our heads in the sand and treat our demographic and workforce

trends as fate, or whether we’ll do something about it.

Let’s recognize that this is an issue that impacts all Vermonters,

and put aside party lines to take meaningful steps to address

our workforce shortage.

from Milton, former House minority leader, current

Milton town manager and longtime member of the Milton Fire

governor in 2018.

Governor Phil Scott directed the Agency of Human Services

of 18 to get a booster.

Anyone who has received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine

is eligible two months after their first dose ndividuals who

received a fier or oderna vaccine are eligible si months

after completing their initial vaccination. About 50% of Vermonters

over the age of 65 have received a booster.

“Over the last 30 days, in a time of increasing cases in the

low-risk age groups, we’ve seen cases in those 65 and older

decline by about 2.5%. This is evidence that boosters are

working to both keep cases lower in the at-risk age groups

and, by further protecting the most at risk, they reduce hospitaliations,

John Shaft is willing to get paid handsomely by Bumpy Jones,

but he has no desire to join his racket or sell drugs.

However, Shaft is just as turned off by his former friend

Ben Buford. Ben Buford is now an angry black revolutionary

and Shaft wants absolutely nothing to do with his group.

John Shaft knows darn well that he has a more challenging

life because he was born black and poor. However, he never

feels sorry for himself or doubts that he can overcome adversity

by being tougher and smarter than white people.

Apart from giving more sophisticated handshakes to black

people, John Shaft treats people of different races the same.

Indeed, the closest thing he has to a friend is police Lieutenant

Vic ndroi

There’s even an important scene where we learn that John

Shaft has a positive working relationship with a sassy gay

Ramping Up At Barre Post 10

By M. McKnight, AL Barre Post 10

Did you notice the flurry of activity one day recently at

American Legion Barre Post 10 on North Main Street? No

problems! Only good things happening!

Thanks to a team of volunteers from The Home Depot store

in illiston and financial assistance from he ome Depot

Foundation, the decades-old access ramp to the deck and entry

to the Post Home was replaced in short order. Doug Rondeau,

Team Depot Store Captain, explained that the supporting

structure is sound, but the planking had deteriorated with

weathering over time, softened, and sagged in places, presenting

a safety hazard, especially in winter weather.

Grants from The Home Depot Foundation provide American

Legion posts, Veterans of Foreign Wars posts, and other

community centers with funds and volunteer help to improve

services and operating efficiency his assistance also provides

an opportunity to aid veterans in need of housing repairs,

Rondeau said, “We are able to do this project now because

the work is outdoors. Company policy prevents us from helping

with projects inside because of the continuing COVID-19

pandemic.” Melvin McKnight, Barre Post 10 Commander

said, “We hope that developing a relationship with The Home

Depot Foundation and getting this project done by The Home

Depot store in Williston will open the door to more improvements

already approved for the post when the pandemic situation

will allow.”

Members of Barre Post 10 and their families, and supporters

and patrons in the community appreciate the efforts of the

Home Depot Team and look forward to seeing more improvements

for the post in the future.

Is That A Snake? Well Kind Of

Passers by to the home of Tony Gile on Upper Main Street in

Montpelier this past autumn season saw something a little unusual

in her very tasteful outdoor decorating project of pump-

ins, gourds, dried flowers and grasses--E RD

They were grown by Ron Schultz of Williamstown, a work associate

of Kyle at Agway Farm and Garden in Montpelier. There

were also dragon gourds, ladle gourds, birdhouse gourds, etc.

“They sure got a lot of second looks by people,” reported Gile.

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) This is a good time

to let that intrepid Aries

temperament take charge.

Your strong leadership

will help settle those stillunresolved

situations. Support comes from a surprising

source.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your problem-solving talents

shine as you move to cool down heated emotions. You

also inspire trust in all parties when you act with careful

consideration of their feelings.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) That long-delayed commitment

begins to look better to you. But there’s still a crucial

fact or two you need to know about it. A health problem

needs to be taken care of.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t waste time trying to

learn why someone you relied on is wavering in his or her

support of your stand on a workplace issue. Move on with

the help of more steadfast allies.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Relationships enter a brighter

period, both at home and in the workplace. Prospects also

look good for single Leos and Leonas, who can expect a

welcome visit from Cupid.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Those mixed signals

that were complicating your life are giving way now to

clear, definitive guidelines his maes it easier for you to

weigh your options and make decisions.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Ask your partner for

an explanation of what seems to be a sign of strain in your

relationship. The sooner you understand the problem, the

sooner you can both act to resolve it.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A new challenge

in the workplace holds an exciting promise for the future.

But be aware of the fact that you haven’t been told about

all the demands you might have to meet.

R ovember to December our financial

picture brightens as you get into sorting out realistic

goals and those that are not reachable at this time.

aution remains your fiscal watchword

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You’re deep

into your new proect, and thats ust fine ut dont neglect

your family and friends. Spending time with people

you care for is always a wise investment.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Past feelings are

suddenly reawakened. This could make you emotionally

vulnerable. Be careful about decisions you might be asked

to make at this time.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You’ve come to a

place where you’ll be facing important decisions that can

affect your future. Rely on your strong moral compass to

guide you toward making the right choices.

BORN THIS WEEK: You’re gifted with both natural wisdom

and wit -- a good combination for success as a writer

or teacher and, most importantly, a parent.

A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO THE WORLD

Black Friday

Remember to Shop Local

The little guys of small business have struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The holiday season offers a great opportunity to help

them get back on their feet as the pandemic subsides and the

economy rebounds with trillions of dollars poured in from

our generous Uncle Sam. And there are many other good

reasons to shop them.

Sale Wednesday & Black Friday

YOUR MONEY STAYS LOCAL

That’s another way to love your neighbor during the holiday

season. Each dollar you spend locally allows three times

that amount to enter the local economy, according to a study

conducted by the American Independent Business Alliance.

Online shopping is the same.

Locally owned businesses generally buy supplies from

other locally owned business, the staff eats out in the community

and grabs a beer or coffee at the local pub or café. In

short, multiple businesses benefit from your dollar spent

Local business also invests in the community and, most

importantly, non-profit organiations he ational echnical

Reports Library has produced data that shows local

non-profits receive more money from its local small

business neighbors than from out-of-town and larger corporate

retailers.

Among those are community shelters, fundraisers and

other community partners.

Local business is also hiring its neighbors.

SHOPPING LOCAL IS ENVIRONMENTALLY

FRIENDLY

When you buy local, your carbon footprint is decreased

because your purchase doesn’t have to be transported by

air or ground. The locally owned business is also probably

expending fewer resources.

A BUSINESS BUILT ON SERVICE

The local small business also offers better customer service.

Why? Because they have to work twice as hard to keep

you coming back and referring others. The local business is

the best way to receive individual, customied attention and

products. The prices will be more competitive, too.

Small businesses selecting products based not on a

national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs

of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of

product choices.

FRIDAY ONLY

By Dan Groberg, Executive Director - Montpelier Alive

The holidays are fast approaching, and what better place to enjoy

them than Montpelier, the coziest place on earth. Montpelier is

bejeweled with sparkling holiday lights and our upcoming events

and sure to get you in the festive spirit.

Where better to do your holiday shopping than Montpelier, USA

Today’s “best small town for shopping” in the United States!

Montpelier was one of only 20 towns across the country to be nominated

by a panel of experts for this award. After four weeks of voting,

Montpelier was selected as the winner!

What makes Montpelier special? Park once and walk to dozens of

independently-owned stores where the owners care about you and

want to help you find the perfect holiday gift! Montpelier offers

independent bookstores, women’s clothing stores, antique stores

and galleries, craft and hobby stores, specialty food stores, and much

more!

Montpelier businesses have been stocking up to avoid supply chain

issues, but it’s a good idea to get your shopping done early before

items run out. How about coming to Montpelier on Flannel Friday

on Friday, November 26th? That’s right, we don’t do Black Friday

here. Instead, Montpelier presents a cozier way to shop. No need

to fight with traffic in the big-box parking lot or show up at 5am for

doorbuster. Enjoy great deals at Montpelier businesses and be sure

to wear your coziest flannel downtown -- if you’re spotted by the

Flannel Fairies, you can win one of over 200 prizes!

On Small Business Saturday, November 27th, enjoy winter

magic in downtown Montpelier with free horse-drawn wagon rides

through town. Rides depart from the corner of State Street and Elm

Street, in front of the former Asiana House. Thank you to Hunger

Mountain Co-op for supporting this event!

Finally, on Friday, December 3rd, enjoy our Holiday Art Walk at

over 20 venues throughout town. Art Walk is a fun way to enjoy art

by local artists, purchase a unique holiday gift, take in the holiday

decorations, and visit local stores after hours. Thank you to Northfield

Savings Bank for supporting the arts.

These companies, featured by Spectrum News, are leaders

among those businesses encouraging shoppers to give back,

in addition to checking off gift lists.

offered 20% discounts to customers who could show through

an online photo confirmation that they donated at least to

a charity.

It’s their way of getting into the spirit of the season.

AT DECIEM, BEAUTY IN THE EYE OF THE GIVER

Canadian-owned beauty company Deciem last year

continued its tradition of “KNOWvember,” an initiative that

encourages customers to shop “based on education over impulse.”

In addition to a month-long 23% discount throughout

November, Deciem hosts daily educational seminars on various

aspects of physical health.

Not everyone shared in the company spirit. Stores in the

U.S. didn’t participate.

“We feel it’s important to release the program in the

United States when we can deliver the best possible experience

for both our stores and customers,” the company said.

REI OUTTA HERE

That’s putting your money where your mouth is.

The company said it was particularly important to do it last

year in light of the contentious election and civil unrest.

GRAMP LYFORD’S

COUNTRY SALVE TM

Cracked fingers?

Dry skin?

Gramp Lyford’s Country Salve was

developed by pharmacists David and

Richard Rochefort and named for

David’s grandfather George Lyford,

who was a Chelsea, VT dairy farmer.

They were inspired to create Gramp

Lyford’s Country Salve after noticing

that daily exposure to the elements

often left Gramps’s hands dry, rough

and cracked. This light, greaseless

salve contains squalane (a natural oil),

urea and allantoin to better penetrate

and moisturize dry, cracked skin.

A study by OnePoll conducted by Rover.

com, the nation’s largest network of dog sitters

and walkers, found that 95 percent of pet

owners have bought holiday gifts for their

pets. Gifts can range from everyday needs,

like food and treats, to more lavish extravagances

like spa treatments.

Pet owners who plan to get their pets

gifts this year may want to consider some

of the emerging pet trends as they browse

wares and services. The Balance, a business,

career and industry information site, says pet

industry trends point toward these segments

seeing growth.

NATURAL PET PRODUCTS

Just as people are interested in protecting

the health of the planet and their own personal

health, so, too, are they extending this

concern to companion animals. Natural pet

products, which can include natural flea and

tick remedies, holistic foods, organic items,

and all-natural grooming products, can make

great gifts.

• • •

SPECIALTY PET SERVICES

The American Pet Products Association

says the demand for high-end pet grooming

and other services is substantial. In addition,

personalized training, behavioral consulting,

portrait photography, dog sitting, and

upscale spa treatments like pet Reiki and

massage are booming.

MOBILE PET GROOMING

Mobile pet grooming has become the

norm in many areas. Mobile pet grooming

can reduce the potential stress on animals,

and tends to be very convenient for customers,

particularly seniors and others who have

mobility issues.

Beyond these growing trends, pet owners

have a bevy of other ideas from which to

choose. Here are just a few different suggestions:

• tests to detect pets’ DNA and trace breed

and ancestry,

• interactive puzzles to keep pets engaged

and banish boredom,

• stylish storage baskets for pet toys,

• hidden cat litter or dog crate items that

camouflage commonly used pet items,

• heated pet bed for cozy nights and mornings,

and

• signature vests, coats and sweaters to look

good and remain comfortable.

Pet gifts are popular this time of year, ensuring

all members of the family have a treat

to open.

The Thanksgiving turkeys on our tables this holiday originated from native wild turkeys whose populations

have been restored across much of orth merica thanks to scientific wildlife management by

state fish and wildlife agencies. VTF&W photo by ohn all.

One of our native wildlife species historically

played an important role on

Thanksgiving Day. North America’s native

wild turkeys were the ancestors of the

Thanksgiving turkey on our dinner table.

Originally found only in the wild, turkeys

now exist as meat-producing domesticated

derivatives – the broad breasted white, broad

breasted bronze, white Holland, bourbon red,

and a host of other breeds – all of them

descended from our native wild turkey.

More than 140,000 servings of Vermont

wild turkeys are harvested each year – that’s

140,000 servings of free-ranging, wild and

sustainably harvested protein.

Wild turkeys exist throughout Vermont

today, but that was not always the case. Wild

turkeys disappeared from Vermont in the

mid-to-late 1800s due to habitat destruction

when land was cleared for farming, and only

25 percent of the state was covered by forest.

The wild turkeys we see in Vermont today

originated from just 31 wild turkeys stocked

in Rutland County by the Vermont Fish and

Wildlife Department in 1969 and 1970.

Vermont’s forest habitat was once again

capable of supporting turkeys. State wildlife

biologists moved groups of these birds northward,

and today Vermont’s population of

turkeys is estimated at close to 50,000.

This is just one of many wildlife restoration

success stories we can be thankful for in 2021.

Funding for Vermont’s wild turkey restoration

was derived from the sale of hunting licenses

and a federal tax on hunting equipment.


A guide to picking the perfect fresh

Christmas tree

Come the holiday season, perhaps no tradition evokes the warm and fuzzy “feels” more than

a family outing to pick a Christmas tree. Whether it’s a trek to a live Christmas tree farm or

a short drive to the nearest pre-cut tree lot, the process of selecting a tree that will serve as

the crown jewel of the entire season is a great way to make lasting memories.

Selecting a tree is a yearly ritual and each person has his

or her set of criteria for what makes the ideal Christmas tree.

hese tips can help families find the right tree

CHOOSE YOUR SPECIES

Do some homework on the type of tree you want prior to

buying the tree alsam fir and fraser fir are popular hristmas

tree varieties, but there are many others, such as noble

fir and orway spruce alsams are nown for having the

most fragrant smell, but frasers tend to keep their needles the

longest or those who prefer a douglas fir, eep in mind that

they sometimes drop their needles prematurely due to foliar

diseases lie needle-cast fungus

SPACE FOR ORNAMENTS

In addition to aroma and needle longevity, look for trees

that have a desirable shape and allow for adeuate space between

branches, advises the home and garden resource The

Spruce. Trees groomed to be lush and full will look beautiful

unadorned, but once ornaments are added, full branches may

cause those ornaments to hang low or even fall off. Trees

with sparse branches allow for ornaments to hang straight.

MEASURE YOUR SPACE

rees in the field or in a lot may loo much smaller than

BLACK FRIDAY | THE WORLD

they do when brought into the living room. Don’t make the

mistake of selecting a tree that is too large for your home.

he agricultural firm Ragan & asey says to measure the

room from floor to ceiling and subtract the height of the tree

stand and tree topper. It’s equally important to measure the

width of the area where the tree will stand and allow for

ample space for foot traffic around the tree

PERFORM A NEEDLE CHECK

Every tree will drop some needles, and most evergreens

hold their foliage odest needle loss is not an indicator of

a poor tree owever, Decers ursery in reenlawn,

says if 50 percent of the needles are lost when you swipe

your hand down three to five different branches around the

tree, the tree likely is not a good choice. In addition, avoid

a tree that has glaring defects in the trunk as it can impede

water flow through the tree

HEAVIER IS BETTER

heavy pre-cut tree means it is full of water and has been

cut more recently. A healthy, fresh tree is going to require an

effort to lift. Older, dried out trees will not be heavy.

Upon arriving home, make a fresh cut off the tree trunk

and get it in water as soon as possible — even if that’s a

bucket until the tree stand can be set up.

Tips To Keep Your Tree Fresh

This Holiday Season

• Pick the right tree. Choosing the right tree is one of the

simplest ways to keep a tree looking good throughout the

holiday season. A freshly cut tree that buyers choose and

cut down themselves or have cut down can reassure them

that the tree is likely to stay strong throughout December.

Trees purchased from a tree lot may have been cut down

long before they made it to the lot, which can make it

harder to keep them looking good until Christmas Day.

• Cut an inch off the base of any tree that is not freshly

cut Etension at ichigan tate niversity notes

that all Christmas trees are conifers, which means they

have resin canals in their trunks. Once a tree is cut, the

resin can block the pores and make it harder for the tree to

take in water. Cutting an inch off the base of a tree that was

not freshly cut just before putting it in the stand can help

ensure it gets the water it needs to stay healthy and firm

Etension notes that this approach should be taen

with any tree that was not cut within si to eight hours of

being put in a stand.

Replenish the water supply every day resh tree

veterans recognize that Christmas trees can be very thirsty,

especially within the first wee or so of being cut and

brought home. Fill the stand with water each morning and,

if necessary, refill it each night before going to bed he

more water a tree gets and drinks, the more likely it is that

the tree will look healthy all the way to Christmas Day.

Etension notes that many decorative or antiue

tree stands do not hold much water, so anyone with such

a stand may need to replenish the water supply more than

once or twice per day.

• Keep the tree away from a heat source. For safety’s

sake, trees should be kept away from heating vents,

fireplaces and space heaters ut eeping trees away from

such heat sources, and ensuring they are not spending the

daytime in direct sunlight, also decreases the chances they

will dry out before Christmas Day.

handful of simple strategies can help holiday celebrants

keep their Christmas trees looking good throughout

the month of December.

NOVEMBER BRIDAL DIRECTORY | THE WORLD

How to plan a winter wedding

Weddings take place throughout the year, but some months have traditionally proven

more popular times of year for happy couples to tie the knot.

Summer was long known as the most popular

season for weddings, but that trend has shifted

in recent years. According to the 2020 Wedding-

Wire Newlywed Report, 36 percent of couples

get married in the fall, making autumn the most

popular time to say “I do.”

Though October and September are the two

most popular months to marry, budget-conscious

couples may want to consider getting married in

winter. December, January and February are the

least popular wedding months, but the experts at

WeddingWire note that getting married during

the slow season has its benefits Vendors, including

wedding planners and venues, may offer their

services and facilities at discounted prices in

winter to account for the slow season. And guests

might be thankful to have a fun event to look

forward to during a time of year when social

schedules tend to be less busy.

Many wedding components will stay the same

regardless of when couples walk down the aisle.

However, couples may need to take a few things

into consideration as they begin planning winter

weddings.

• Avoid holiday weekends. Just because social

schedules are not always so busy in winter that

doesn’t mean couples can pick any winter weekend

to tie the knot. The holiday season, which

begins on Thanksgiving weekend in late November

and lasts until New Year’s Day, is a hectic

time of year for many people. Avoid holiday

weekends like Thanksgiving and the weekends

before or after Christmas and New Year’s Eve/

New Year’s Day. These weekends already are

busy travel times, so couples might not be able to

get guest-friendly rates on hotel rooms, and some

guests may already have plans to visit family.

In addition to the December holidays, avoid the

first weeend in ebruary hats uper owl

weekend, and many people may be reluctant to

travel on the day of the big game.

• Research local weather. It’s impossible

to predict the weather, but savvy couples can

research local weather in the town or city where

they’re getting married to determine when is

the most travel-friendly month to host their

weddings. Some regions get heavy snowfall in

January, while others may be more susceptible

to late winter snowstorms. Couples with a lot of

out-of-town guests should choose a winter weekend

where snowfall is unlikely so guests don’t

have to endure travel delays on their way to and

from the wedding.

• Purchase wedding insurance. Wedding insurance

is a wise investment for every couple, but it

can be especially valuable for couples tying the

knot in winter. Each policy is different, but wedding

insurance policies should protect couples’

investments if storms force local officials to

declare a state of emergency that prohibits travel.

Make sure the policy covers both cancellations

and postponements.

Winter weddings can help couples save

money. Planning such affairs may require paying

attention to details that would not garner much

consideration during other times of year.

Did you know?

Christmas Day is the most

popular day to get engaged.

According to the 2020

WeddingWire Newlywed

Report, more couples who

were married in 2019 got

engaged on Christmas Day

than any other day during

the year. Christmas Eve was

the second most popular day

to pop the question, while

the Sunday before Christmas

Eve came in fourth (New

Year’s Day rounded out the

top three). The appeal of

Christmastime proposals

helped make December

the most popular month to

get engaged, as more than

19 percent of couples who

married in 2019 got engaged

in the final month of the

year. July proved the second

most popular month to pop

the question, as 9 percent

of couples who wed in 2019

reported getting engaged in

July. Tradition still has a place

in wedding proposals, as 84

percent of proposers reported

asking on bended knee, while

65 percent acknowledged

asking parents’ permission

prior to popping the question.

ACT Awards Nearly $140,000

in 2021 Season Point Fund

and Contingency Prizes

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) has distributed nearly

$140,000 worth of season-ending awards to cap the 2021 racing

season. This includes awards from the ACT Late Model

Tour, Thunder Road Speedbowl, White Mountain Motorsports

Park (WMMP), and the New England Late Model Challenge

Cup.

More than $107,000 in point fund money alone was distributed

across the ACT family of tracks and series. A total of 75

drivers received at least one point fund check from ACT this

year.

Some of the biggest point fund winners include Barre, VT’s

Jason Corliss, Turner, ME’s Ben Rowe, Graniteville, VT’s

Stephen Donahue, and Waterbury Center, VT’s Tanner

Woodard. Corliss had the season of a lifetime, winning his

third straight Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Model title at

Thunder Road plus the inaugural Challenge Cup crown. This

double championship comes on top of his five Thunder Road

weekly racing wins and the $10,000 check for capturing the

Midsummer Classic 250.

Ben Rowe and his Richard Moody Racing team took home

a $10,000 check for winning their first ACT Late Model Tour

championship. The team also is receiving nearly $2,000 worth

of contingency awards for their accomplishments. This

includes three 54-gallon drums of Sunoco 110-octane racing

fuel; a case of Driven Racing Oil; and product certificates

from Bassett Wheels, All-Star Performance, Kirkey

Fabrication, and KRC Power Steering.

Donahue and Woodard were the only drivers to earn three

point-fund checks in ACT-sanctioned competition. Awards

went to Donahue for finishing 7th in ACT Late Model Tour

points, 10th in Thunder Road Late Model points, and 6th in

Challenge Cup points. Woodard took 10th in Thunder Road

Flying Tiger points, 4th in White Mountain Flying Tiger

points, and 5th in the J.P. Sicard Triple Crown Series. He was

just one spot away from a fourth check, coming 6th in the

Myers Container Series Triple Crown at Thunder Road.

In addition to the cash point fund prizes, there were almost

$30,000 in year-end contingency prizes for ACT competitors.

This is on top of more than $14,000 work of contingencies

awards from ACT’s partners during the season.

Local Schools Name Vermont’s Plow Trucks

By CompassVermont.com

In fall 2021, schools from around Vermont came up with

names for VTrans snowplows in their local maintenance district.

From creative and clever, to cute and silly, here are the

new names of VTrans plows that will be serving their communities

this winter.

Some notable name selections include Snow Destroyer

from Barre Town Middle-Elementary School. Yo Bro, No

now from erlin Elementary chool, and roofield Elementary

School’s throwback to earlier days in Vermont, Ol

Bessy.

The Pacem School in Montpelier got poetic with Edgar Allen

Snow, while Randolph Elementary School did a spin-off of

an animated cartoon series with their Bob the Plower choice.

A total of 162 schools participated in the plow naming

event. Here is a list of central Vermont names.

When it Comes to Cars Speeding in Vermont, 90 is the New 70

By CompassVermont.com

The Vermont State Police set up another saturation patrol

on Interstate 89 in Washington County on November 13 between

8 a.m. and noon.

The result? Troopers stopped a total of 24 vehicles, issued

14 tickets and 12 warnings. That likely doesn’t surprise anyone

who regularly drives around Vermont, ecept that five of

those vehicles were traveling over 90 miles per hour.

A saturation patrol is a strategy where a group of law enforcement

troopers patrols a specific area for a set time to detect

and identify aggressive drivers while enforcing the motor

vehicle laws and promoting safe driving,” according to the

Vermont State Police.

Saturation patrols are conducted in 44 of the 50 states. Vermont

typically used three state troopers when conducting a

saturation patrol. State police previously conducted such a patrol

on ctober , on - in the iddlese and roofield

areas of Washington and Orange County, between 5:30 p.m.

and 7:30 p.m.

The October 15 patrol was half as long as November 13 but

ACT Awards continued from previous page

ARBodies and Five Star Race Car Bodies were two huge

contributors to the end-of-year prize pool. Both companies

awarded a full body package to one random full-time driver

each from the ACT, Thunder Road, and White Mountain Late

Models. Franklin, NH’s Matt Anderson (ACT Tour),

Hinesburg, VT’s Cooper Bouchard (Thunder Road), and

Claremont, NH’s Mike Jurkowski (WMMP) are receiving

brand-new Rodies ate odel body pacages

Five Star ABC NextGen body packages are going to Derry,

NH’s Erick Sands (ACT Tour), Westford, VT’s Darrell Morin

(Thunder Road), and Moultonborough, NH’s Matthew Morrill

(WMMP).

The companies also posted season-ending awards for the

Flying Tiger division and Challenge Cup. Milton, VT’s

Robert Gordon (Thunder Road) and Tanner Woodard

(WMMP) were chosen to collect an ARBodies 88 Monte

Carlo reskin kit. Milton, VT’s Sam Caron (Thunder Road)

and Marshfield, VT’s Matthew Potter (WMMP) are each getting

$500 Five Star product certificates. East Providence, RI’s

Gerry DeGasparre Jr. gets the $500 ARBodies Challenge Cup

gift certificate while Graniteville, VT’s Christopher Pelkey

was selected for the $500 Five Star Challenge Cup merchandise

card.

Norton, MA’s Mark Hudson will have a new Port City Race

Cars ACT chassis for his racing adventures in 2022. The

brand-new chassis went to Hudson as part of the Challenge

Cup program. Hudson was randomly selected from the 25

drivers who ran at least 10 Challenge Cup-eligible events.

Both Koni and QA1 posted three sets apiece of ACT Late

Model-approved shock absorbers to be given out at season’s

end. Center Conway, NH’s D.J. Shaw (ACT Tour), Morrisville,

VT’s Brandon Lanphear (Thunder Road), and Monroe, NH’s

Oren Remick (WMMP) are each getting a set of Koni 30

series shocks. The sets of QA1 63 series shocks are going to

Stephen Donahue (ACT Tour), Chris Roberts (Thunder

Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s Groundbreaking Map Project Wins

$100,000 Federal Grant to Help Wildlife Adapt to Climate Change

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife

Department won a $106,256 competitive

grant from the U.S. Fish

and Wildlife Service to take advantage

of groundbreaking new data

that will help conservation planners

protect plants, animals and

their habitats in the face of climate

change.

Vermont Conservation Design is

a science-based assessment of

Vermont’s ecologically functional

landscape that helps guide strategic

fish and wildlife conservation.

“With this grant, we are excited to

fine-tune our assessment to better

identify lands and waters that contribute

to Vermont’s healthy environment

with climate change in

mind,” said Director of Wildlife

Mark Scott.

First released in 2015, Vermont

Conservation Design maps the

habitat needed to ensure Vermont’s

wildlife remains healthy and abundant.

Six years later, new statewide

“Lidar” data from the

Vermont Center for Geographic

Information provide an opportunity to upgrade this conservation

tool.

Lidar, short for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote

sensing technology that uses aircraft-mounted laser scanners

and a global positioning system to map landscape texture,

giving researchers a more accurate understanding of land

cover. It provides 400 times higher resolution than any previous

landcover data.

The new data will reveal critical details for wildlife movement

and ecological connections, like hedgerows through

fields and forest edges close to roads. These connections

allow animals to move from one habitat block to the next as

they adjust their ranges to climate change.

“These very detailed land cover maps will help us find the

places where wildlife, such as black bears and bobcats, can

travel between large patches of forest,” says Jens Hilke, a

Cross VT Trail Completes Historic Construction Season

Cross Vermont Trail Association announces the conclusion

to an historic construction season. Good news – the longawaited

Winooski Bridge on the Cross Vermont Trail in East

Montpelier is completed. Back in July, many observers

thrilled at the sight of the 200-foot long bicycle and pedestrian

bridge being hoisted into the air over the river. Since then

contractors have worked to finish the abutments and structural

details, which are now done. Meanwhile, numerous

other elements of the larger trail project are also being completed,

leading to the bridge from each direction. A ribboncutting

ceremony officially opening the bridge and the first

section of new trail to public use is planned for May 2022.

This bridge is the keystone piece of the Cross Vermont

Trail Association-led effort to connect the Montpelier Bike

Path across East Montpelier up to where the existing rail trail

begins at Route 14 – and ultimately to connect the Barre-

Montpelier area into a statewide multi-use path network.

Travelers along Route 2 in East Montpelier have seen

orange “road construction ahead” signs all this past year. In

addition to the new bridge, contractors have built a trailhead

parking area located one-third mile east of the bridge on

Route 2. And to link the parking area to the bridge, contractors

rebuilt a 650-foot section of guardrail and road shoulder

conservation planner at Vermont Fish and Wildlife. “It is

critical that wildlife have the ability to move around the state

and beyond, especially as climate change pushes plants and

animals into new habitats.”

Federal support for this project highlights the department’s

leadership in science-based conservation. “The Competitive

State Wildlife Grants provide a proactive, collaborative and

innovative mechanism for addressing significant threats to

our nation’s cherished wildlife and their habitats,” said U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service Principal Deputy Director Martha

Williams.

“This grant enables us to enhance and accelerate our work

with new science, so that priority species from moose and

northern long-eared bats to native bees and rare plants remain

healthy and able to adapt to climate change in Vermont and

beyond,” Scott added.

along Route 2 to make room for a fully separate trail, between

the road and the river on the outside of the guardrail.

Cross Vermont Trail staff are working now and next year to

build remaining trail segments between the completed contractor

projects; volunteers are invited to help.

In addition to the Cross Vermont Trail itself, there will be

two paths linking with U-32 School, one for mountain bikes

and one that is fully accessible. CVTA is also partnering with

the Northern Forest Canoe Trail to make connections to the

river from the trail, for portaging and water access.

In all, 2.5 miles of trail will be built between Gallison Hill

Road and Route 2 by late 2022. And by the end of 2023 an

additional 2.5 miles will be built to finish the project up to

Route 14.

Updates on the entire project are posted at www.crossvermont.org

with information on how the public can get

involved, volunteer or donate. Here you can view dramatic

aerial drone footage of the bridge installation and download a

map with detailed explanations of each trail segment.

The mission of the Cross Vermont Trail Association is to

create and maintain a multi-use trail across Vermont through

the Winooski and Wells River Valleys between Lake

Champlain and the Connecticut River.

Public Service Releases Draft Comprehensive Energy

Plan for Vermont’s Energy Future

June E. Tierney, Commissioner of the Department

of Public Service said, “Vermont is

at a time of remarkable transition for how we

heat our homes and fuel our cars. This Comprehensive

Energy Plan sets a path for ensuring

that this transition benefits all Vermonters

and results in an energy system that is affordable,

sustainable, reliable, and environmentally

sound.” The draft CEP draws from input

provided by Vermonters who shared their

insights over the past months. “This initial

draft is only the next step in an ongoing process.

Continued public input is vital for us to

achieve a plan that reflects the voices from all

corners of Vermont,” added TJ Poor, Director

of Efficiency & Energy Resources at the Department.

Poor also said that “Active engagement

of Vermonters is critical to determine

how best to respond to the rapidly evolving

energy landscape.”
