National Life Foundation Donates $15,000 for

Montpelier Food Pantry Ventilation System

A $15,000 grant has been

awarded to Just Basics by the

National Life Group Foundation

to make upgrades to the

Montpelier Food Pantry’s

ventilation system so it can

allow families to enter again.

“Our cause at the National

Life Group Foundation is to

help end hunger,” said Beth

Rusnock, Foundation President.

“This is our local community

food shelf that our

neighbors rely on for hot

meals and items to go. We are

grateful that we are able to

help restore it to full service

with this grant.”

The pantry operates in the basement of a local

church, providing food to 70 families per

day three times a week. Since the Covid-19

pandemic began, the families have been unable

to “shop” in the pantry as they have in the

past, because of inadequate ventilation.

A fund-raising campaign was begun to pay

for the $31,000 in updated ventilation, which

will allow the basement space to reopen to the

Family Center of Washington County

Diaper Drive Success

Shelley and Colleen from

Community Bank presented

this check to Claire Kendall

of the Family Center of

Washington County in support

of the Family Center’s

5th Annual Diaper Drive. The

Family Center has now raised

over $8,000. In addition,

community members donated

3,000 diapers. The Family

Center wishes to thank all of

its donors for their incredible

generosity.

The FCWC Diaper Pantry

fills a critical need in or com

munity. Prior to the pandemic,

diapers were an expensive

item that one in three families

struggled to purchase. This

situation has not improved

as diaper costs have risen

this year. The Family Center

made 679 diaper deliveries to

families between April 2020

and June 2021.

Split the Ticket Fund Delivers this Holiday Season

Many Vermonters in need will receive a

surprise gift of warmth this winter thanks to

the Split the Ticket Fund. While thousands

of Vermont families receive fuel assistance

through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance

Program, there are many Vermonters

that don’t qualify but still need help. These

families can receive donations of heating

oil, propane, and kerosene from the Split the

Ticket Fund, a Vermont based 501c3 nonprofit

organiation

This innovative program matches cash donations

with donations of heating oil, kerosene

and propane from Vermont’s fuel providers.

The delivery ticket is split in half: every

$1 donated buys $2 worth of fuel. Vermont’s

heating fuel and service providers are mostly

small, family-owned businesses. They are

will begin to allow in-person shopping again.

Additionally, hot lunches will be served in

the space and an accompanying Community

often the first to hear abot and respond to a

heating emergency. This program gives them,

as well as local bsinesses, organiations and

individuals, the opportunity to provide a gift

of warmth to someone in their community.

Since it was created in 2007, the fund has

delivered more than 100,000 gallons of free

heating fuel to our neighbors in need.

Those receiving a gift of warmth are nominated

by someone in the community. If there

is someone you think is deserving this winter,

please send an email to split@vermontfuel.

National Poll Places Vermont Phil Scott

as Nation’s Favorite Governor

By CompassVermont.com

Republican Phil Scott of Vermont has been

America’s most popular governor throughout

2021, a fact that is not lost on his party’s

strategists, who are hoping to lure him into

the open race to replace retiring Democratic

Sen. Patrick Leahy in next year’s midterm

elections.

But Scott has insisted he will not heed their

calls, and given Vermont’s lack of term limits,

it’s hard to see anyone uprooting him from his

perch in Montpelier if he runs for re-election.

In Vermont, 79 percent of registered voters

approved of Scott’s job performance in the

third quarter of 2021, making him the most

popular governor in the country.

his figre is roghl in line with his ap

proval rating in the first and second arters

of the year, when he also led the pack.

Scott’s standing in Vermont

Scott’s support is strongest among Democratic

voters, who are least likely to vote for a

Republican next year. Nearly 9 in 10 (88 percent)

approve of his job performance, similar

to the shares who say the same of Leahy (89

percent), President Joe Biden (93 percent) and

self-described democratic socialist Sen. Bernie

Sanders (95 percent), who campaigns as

an independent in Vermont.

Among independent voters, who constitute

the bulk of Vermont’s electorate, 3 in 4 hold

positive views about the job Scott is doing as

governor, compared with 58 percent for Sanders,

53 percent for Biden and 48 percent for

Leahy.

Scott has yet to announce his plans for reelection

but is expected to do so sometime after

the state legislature reconvenes next year,

his spokesman said.

publication founded by a native Vermonter,

and values of the Green Mountain State.

Congressman Peter Welch Announces

U.S. Senate Run

Congressman Peter Welch announced that

he is seeking election to the U.S. Senate. This

comes following Senator Patrick Leahy’s announcement

last week that he will not seek

re-election for a ninth term.

“We are at a pivotal moment,” said Congressman

Welch in a statement. “If Vermonters

elect me to the U.S. Senate, I will be ready

to fight for progressive change on da one

“I’ve seen Vermonters come together to

solve problems,” Welch said. “We focus on

solutions, not who gets credit. That’s the

Vermont way. That’s how I’ve gotten things

done as Vermont’s congressman and how I

will get things done if I am elected to the

U.S. Senate.”

Vermont Democratic Party Chair Anne

Lezak said in a statement: “The Vermont

Democratic Party is excited that Congressman

Welch is running for the U.S. Senate.

Senator Leahy will be leaving big shoes to

fill, and we have no dobt that ongressman

Statement by the Coalition for

Vermont Student Equity On

the Pupil Weighting Task Force

eecting cientificall erived

Recommendations

The Coalition for Vermont Student Equity (CVTSE) has

been working to implement a corrected education funding

formula that would help children and schools in districts that

have been harmed by education funding inequities over the

past 20+ years. These corrections were recommended by the

University of Vermont and Rutgers University researchers in

2019.

The researchers’ recommendations were simple: correct the

equity formula in Vermont’s education funding system to reflect

the realworld costs of edcating children living in pov

erty and rural areas, and children who are English language

learners. CVTSE is deeply disappointed that the Pupil Weighting

Task Force has made the decision to ignore the empirically

derived recommendations which would correct the education

equity formula and ensure that all children in Vermont have

access to an equitable education system. Instead, legislators

on the Pupil Weighting Task Force have decided to ignore the

research of experts and to go their own way. Put simply, the

Pupil Weighting Task Force has decided to put politics ahead

of Vermont’s children. Not only does this new approach legislators

have derived do nothing to correct the inequities in

Vermont’s education funding formula, it paves the way for

a statewide voucher program that will further funnel public

dollars into private schools. We believe that the Legislature

did not intend for the Task Force on the Implementation of

the pil eighting actors eport to make edcation finance

more complicated, or to further enrich private schools at the

expense of bringing equity to public educational opportunities.

Districts from Rutland to the NEK, from Windham County

to Winooski remain strongly opposed to any proposal that

doesn’t correct the flawed formla as recommended b

and Rutgers University.

CVTSE is calling on the Task Force to use their remaining

two meetings to create an actual implementation plan

for the peer-reviewed recommendations made by UVM and

Rutgers University. Vermonters from communities all across

the state have weighed in at countless meetings both last legislative

session and over the summer and fall to ask for the

recommendations to be implemented. The harm that Vermont

children have eperienced de to the last 2 ears of flawed

calculations cannot be undone, but the system can and must be

repaired going forward.

for Vermont’s families, workers, older folks

and those often left behind have well prepared

him for this moment am confident that e

ter Welch will continue to serve as a national

leader on jobs, education, health care, climate

action, and other issues that matter to

Vermonters. He has demonstrated time and

again that he has what it takes to stand up to

Republican naysayers, and will energetically

take on McConnell and Senate Republicans if

elected.”

Congressman Welch is a Chief Deputy

Whip of the House Democratic Caucus and

is a member of the House Progressive Caucus.

He is a member of the Democratic Steering

and Policy Committee and serves on the

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,

the House Committee on Energy

and Commerce, and the House Committee on

Oversight and Reform. He has served as Vermont’s

Congressman since 2007.

Our program attempts to channel the spirit of Larry Gordon

by presenting the contemporary Estonian composer Urmas Sisask’s

Magnificat, which Larry rehearsed with the chorus for

seven weeks before his fatal accident, and four pieces from

the shape note tradition – including one of Larry’s own – that

he championed with the Word of Mouth chorus, which predated

the Onion River Chorus. Our gratitude goes to Steven

Light, who sang with Larry in Word of Mouth, for choosing

ondros ove, orthfield, aptain idd, and o

Not Go Gentle” to round out the amended program. And we

thank Larry’s longtime friend and colleague Lynnette Combs

for gifting us a performance of two movements from Sisask’s

major work for organ Geminorum Kastor.

The Magnificat is for four-part a cappella voices, in twelve

movements, setting each verse of the traditional Latin text.

ach of the first ten movements is based on a different five

note pentatonic scale and ses onl those five notes in all the

vocal parts, giving the harmonies and melodies a wonderful

modal feeling.

For the safety of all we ask that audience members be

masked and fully vaccinated for Covid-19. Admission is $15

and tickets will be available at the door. The concert will be

dedicated to the memory of Larry Gordon.

storteller, carpenter and host finall decided he wold

“In 1975, I sat down with my typewriter and an LP recording

of Professor Lean’s performance, and typed out the script.

That took some patience. My wife and I invited friends over;

living room.”

Hugo’s Bar and Grill to Open in Lobster Pot/

Culinary Institute Building

By CompassVermont.com

A building rich with the history of chowders and chefs is

transforming into a new merican bistro with a thirdfloor

piano cocktail bar and late night menu.

Hugo’s Bar and Grill will replace the former home of the

New England Culinary Institute, which was the iconic Lobster

Pot many years before that.

Social media posts report that Keith Walker, a former sous

chef at Waterbury’s Hen of the Wood, will return from his

tour of high-end Boston cheffery to be Hugo’s executive chef.

Walker will be joined by Jana Markow, former manager of

Sarducci’s and Julio’s, and will be in the front of the house,

as they say.

The announcement says the food will be “accessible, affordable,

new American bistro and locally sourced where possible,

inclding the freshest fish broght in from oston and local

meats and vegetables from Vermont.”

Hugo’s is headed up by Thomas Christopher Greene, a novelist

and former founding president of Vermont College of

Fine Arts.

figre since started a college dring a recession in 2,

it totall makes sense to start an ambitios 2 seat restarant

during a pandemic, right?” posted Greene on social media.

White House Recognizes Two Vermont Utilities for

Commitment to Helping Customers Through the Pandemic

Green Mountain Power (GMP) and VGS are among an

initial group of utilities recognized by the White House as part

of an ongoing initiative to ensure vulnerable Americans are

protected this winter and that unprecedented pandemic relief

funding is distributed to customers for heat and utility assistance.

VGS and GMP were among the first in the country to

sign on to the White House initiative, agreeing to identify and

notify customers eligible for assistance programs, and to

guarantee no shutoffs for customers who are seeking assistance.

“As we prepared for this convening, [we put out] a special

challenge to utilities and energy providers to do their part,”

said White House American Rescue Plan Coordinator Gene

Sperling at the November 18 briefing by the White House.

“We’ve been very pleased that in the last few days, seven

major utility companies including DTE Energy, Eversource,

Green Mountain Power, National Grid, NorthWestern Energy,

Portland General Electric, and Vermont Gas, as well as the

delivered fuel trade association NEFI, have all answered this

call.”

GMP and VGS have both been working proactively with

empathy throughout the pandemic to help customers and connect

them with available assistance programs, as record numbers

of Vermonters have fallen behind on their utility balances.

There are assistance programs that can help customers

right now.

If you rent your home, you may qualify for assistance for

past due utility bills and rent by applying through the Vermont

Department of Public Service. This program is funded with

federal pandemic relief dollars. A similar program for income

eligible homeowners is launching soon to provide utility and

mortgage assistance.

GMP has a discount program for customers who are low

income that will help with past due balances and future bills.

Found here: https://dcf.vermont.gov/benefits/eap/GMP. GMP

also offers no interest payment plans and can be reached toll

free at 2

VGS has a low income assistance program to provide eligible

cstomers with 2 off their monthl heating bills he

program is administered by the Vermont Department of

Eunice E. Colombe

BARRE- Eunice Colombe, 93, passed

away on Sunday, November 21, 2021, at

the Berlin Meadows Nursing and Rehabilitation

Center, where she had resided

since June 1, 2018. Despite having received

both vaccine doses last winter, she

tested positive for COVID-19 on October

20.

Born in Barre City, Eunice was the last

surviving child of eight born to Ernest

Hutchinson and Hazel (Clark) Hutchinson. Her lifespan exceeded

the next longest by fourteen and a half years, a feat

achieved in part due to the extensive oversight and support

from her daughter.

As a child she lived in Graniteville, entering foster care near

her seventh birthday. She attended South Barre School. After

aging out of state care at 21, she worked as a personal care attendant,

dishwasher, and other typical work available to women,

with her longest job as a presser at Malnati Dry Cleaners.

Due to the lack of childcare options, she exited the workforce

to become a stay-at-home mother in 1969.

Living in a time and place where an eighth grade education

was considered sfficient for girls, especiall disadvantaged

ones, she always felt cheated out of her education and stressed

to her children the importance of doing well in class, including

staying after school to get help from the teacher.

She enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, television and her cat, and

deeply mourned the loss of contact with Missy when she entered

the nursing home. She will be remembered for walking

everywhere, from taking her young children along on errands

“upstreet” in a Radio Flyer wagon, and continuing through her

seventies to visit a friend at the Bonin Rest Home, and for her

sweetness, loyalty and unpretentiousness.

She is survived by her children, Christina Colombe and

Walter Colombe and his wife Sheila, all of Barre.

Memorial contributions may be made to the North Country

Animal League, 16 Mountain View Meadow Road, Morrisville,

VT 05661

There will be no calling hours.

A graveside service was held on Monday, November 29,

2021, at 11 a.m. at Hope Cemetery in Barre.

Arrangements are in the care of the Pruneau-Polli Funeral

Home, 58 Summer Street in Barre.

Nursing Homes Down 221,000 Jobs Since Start of Pandemic

In case you missed it, the American Health Care Association

and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL)

released a report showing that long term care facilities are

suffering from the worst labor crisis of any health care sector.

While hospitals, physicians’ offices, outpatient care centers

and other health care facilities have reached or surpassed prepandemic

staffing levels, October data from the Bureau of

Labor Statistics (BLS) show nursing homes and assisted living

communities have still not rebounded. Nursing homes

have seen their employment level drop 14 percent since the

state of the pandemic, equating to 221,000 lost jobs.

Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL,

said, “As many caregivers are getting burned out by the pandemic,

workers are leaving the field for jobs in other health

care settings or other industries altogether. Chronic Medicaid

underfunding, combined with the billions of dollars providers

have spent to fight the pandemic, has left long term care providers

struggling to compete for qualified staff. We desperately

need the help of policymakers to attract and retain more

caregivers, so that our nation’s most vulnerable have access to

the long term care they need.”

AHCA/NCAL’s report received extensive news coverage,

including Bloomberg, HuffPost, Market Watch, The Daily

Caller, Daily American, Fierce Healthcare, McKnight’s Long-

Term Care News, McKnight’s Senior Living, Physician’s

Weekly, Provider Magazine, Skilled Nursing News, Albany

Herald (Albany, GA), The Altamont Regional Enterprise

(Albany County, NY), The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

(Little Rock, AR), AZ Big Media (Phoenix, AZ), Center

Square (Illinois), The CT Mirror (Hartford, CT), KGAN-TV

(CBS-Cedar Rapids, IA), The Missouri Times (Jefferson,

City, MO), ROI-NJ (Cedar Knolls, NJ), The San Diego

Union-Tribune (San Diego, CA), Texas Border Business

(McAllen, TX), WBAY-TV (ABC-Green Bay, WI), WCSC-

TV (Charleston, SC), WGNS Radio (Murfreesboro, TN),

• • •

WIBW-TV (CBS-Topeka KS) and WYPR-AM (Baltimore,

MD), among others.

Amid these circumstances, the Build Back Better Act,

recently passed by the U.S. House, threatens to worsen the

crisis. Two unfunded mandates included in the bill could force

thousands of nursing homes to further limit the number of

residents they serve or even close completely. AHCA/NCAL

held a press conference last week detailing how the unfunded

mandates would reduce access to care for vulnerable seniors.

The bill requires nursing homes to have a registered nurse

(RN) on staff 24 hours a day and requires the U.S. Department

of Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct a study on

minimum staffing ratios and implement the regulations within

one year. Although AHCA supports having an RN on staff, as

proposed in AHCA and Leading Age’s Care for Our Seniors

Act, nursing homes will be unable to fulfill these requirements

without additional funding.

AHCA/NCAL estimates that if the HHS study found that

nursing homes need to increase clinical and direct care staff by

25 percent, it would require hiring more than 150,000 RNs,

licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and certified nursing assistants

(CNAs), costing $10.7 billion per year. The RN mandate would

require hiring 21,000 more nurses, costing $2.5 billion a year.

Fox Business, McKnight’s Long-Term Care News, Skilled

Nursing News, Provider Magazine and KIT-AM (Yakima,

WA) reported on AHCA’s warning about the consequences of

these unfunded mandates.

Long term care facilities across the country have faced

unprecedented challenges over the course of the pandemic,

and now we must focus on helping the sector recover. The

current workforce crisis demands that lawmakers to work

together with providers and give them the necessary resources

to recruit and retain more caregivers. Caregivers are the backbone

of our long term care facilities, and they deserve our

support.

Governor Phil Scott Calls

Special Legislative Session

Governor Phil Scott signed a proclamation calling a special

session, convening the Legislature on Monday, November 22

for the sole purpose of passing legislation narrowly tailored to

grant municipalities the authority to implement time limited

mask mandates, if they choose.

Governor Scott offered this path forward to legislative leadership

as a compromise following their repeated calls for statewide

mandates and restrictions, which the Governor does not

support at this point in the pandemic. The Vermont League of

Cities and Towns also requested this local authority, on behalf

of their members.

In a letter sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives

and the President Pro Tempore of the state Senate on

Monday, the Governor outlined his offer. He also reiterated he

would not support – and would veto – any additional measures

the Legislature sought to pass during this special session.

As the Legislature debates this issue, the Governor and his

team will continue to encourage Vermonters to get vaccinated,

get their booster shot and – while hospitals continue to be

strained – to wear masks indoors, make smart choices about

gatherings, stay home when sick and use testing as a tool.

The Administration has also taken numerous steps to expand

hospital capacity, including adding beds and staff, and has

increased efforts to ensure patients have access to life-saving

treatments like monoclonal antibodies.

“At this phase in the pandemic, with more than 20 months

of experience, broad, top-down mandates and the overuse of

executive emergency power is not appropriate and counterproductive

to our ultimate path forward, which is getting more

people vaccinated and boosted,” said Governor Scott. “CO-

VID-19 is not going away anytime soon, and perhaps could

be with us for decades, which is why we need to use the experience

and knowledge we’ve gained managing the virus to

continue moving forward.”

Dear Editor,

On November 10th Campaign for Vermont (CFV) held a

press conference to review the details of its report entitled The

Public Sector Reality. For the record, I am the President of the

Board of Directors of CFV. Over the past months of pension

discussions at the Legislature we heard claims about the

state’s non-competitive wages and we decided to verify those

statements. We set out expecting to find that pension benefits

were an unquestionable asset to recruiting and retaining our

public sector workforce. What we found surprised us.

Here are our key findings:

1. The average public sector employee is in the top 25% of

income earners in Vermont, even before you consider health

benefits.

2. On average, employees make nearly $12,000/yr less in the

private-sector vs. the public-sector.

3. The average private sector employee makes at least

$20,000 less per year in retirement than a public sector

employee. This disparity likely grows when health benefits

are considered.

4. Wages for public sector employees have grown faster over

the past 20 years than private sector employees. And, over the

Covid Means Loss

Covid means loss. That was my simplified revelation during

a recent sleep-disturbed night. The politicians can put

whatever spin they want on it and they are wrong. Like others,

I have grappled with and struggled over the destructive

impact of Covid on our lives. Like some I have tried to maintain

some kind of normalcy in my day to day being, but I am

often overwhelmed by the guilt factor and feelings of insecurity,

helplessness and sorrow. The past two years have seen

too many losses in our communities, including deaths, broken

relationships, and empty shelves and checkbooks.

This month Central Vermont lost Dylan T. Wirth, a young

man I had a unique relationship with, springing from the winter

he and his parents took care of my dog Sophie. Dylan is

possibly the only person who could have talked me into going

to Thunder Road. I went with him pre-Covid and watched a

stealth performance by Phil Scott. Dylan and I planned to

return to Thunder Road, me with ear plugs, a nose plug and a

real chair to sit on, but Covid nixed that date. During the past

two years Dylan reached out by phone and text but, other than

chance encounters, I had no further one on one time with him

during Covid. Regrettably, that has been the case with too

many special people who left this life during Covid. It has

also been the case with side-lined friendships and canceled or

reconstructed social activities. We are all suffering from separation,

radical change, fear of the future, and loss. Some say

not much has changed in their lives. To some extent I envy

them for that. Personally I feel blessed to have a roof over my

head, food on the table, my health and my husband, but that

does not change the desperation I feel about the plight of

those not so fortunate, and the future of our country and the

world. Covid and climate change are killing us.

Workable solutions seem out of reach. There is no consensus

on Covid or climate change, at least not to the extent

past 30 years (as far back as we have data) private sector

wages have consistently lagged the public sector.

5. The problem is going to get worse before it gets better as

nearly 20% of state workers are approaching retirement.

6. The extraordinary benefits offered to public sector retirees

may not be necessary to compete for qualified workers.

CFV hopes that having this information will help the

Legislative Pension Task Force to ask the tough questions

about the total compensation of public employees that are

necessary as they set about making the changes to address the

State’s current $4.5 Billion pension liability situation. We will

continue this important work to better understand the value

proposition of our above average benefit options. CFV values

our public employees and do not want to break our promises

to them, but we do need to make changes that safeguard the

long-term stability of our pension funds for future generations.

Pat McDonald, Berlin, VT

Eliminating Bureaucracy in Professional Regulation:

A Right-Sized Approach Helps All Vermonters

By Vermont Deputy Secretary of State Chris Winters

Nationally, nearly 1 in 4 jobs require a government permission

slip, often to the detriment of entrepreneurs and job seekers.

Licensing began when the public demanded more accountability

from the doctors, lawyers, and dentists who provided

them with important services. Over time, well-meaning people

added similar protections for a wide range of other services,

sometimes losing sight of that basic public protection mission.

Fortunately, Vermont is one of the less regulated states when

it comes to professional and occupational licensing and we have

used common-sense to further improve professional regulation

over the years at the Secretary of State’s Office. We understand

that while licensing is a public protection issue, it is also a

workforce and economic development driver. Vermont must

continue to streamline professional licensure to meet its workforce

needs and to make the state an attractive, competitive, and

rational place to work and live.

Vermont’s Office of Professional Regulation (OPR), regulating

50 professions and occupations, has taken several big

strides recently to reduce barriers to entry for licensed professionals

without sacrificing public protection.

Under the leadership of Secretary Jim Condos, with bipartisan

cooperation from the Legislature and Governor, and with

support of a Federal Department of Labor grant, OPR has

crafted and implemented policies making Vermont a national

leader in licensing reform:

Fast-track licensing: our office has implemented one of the

most sweeping universal endorsement policies anywhere in the

United States. A professional who has been licensed in good

standing for three years anywhere in the country can obtain a

Vermont license from OPR on that basis—no tests, no uncertainty,

no waiting.

Credit for military experience: we recognize military training,

making Vermont one of the only states in the country to

offer a direct path from certain medic classifications to nursing

licensure, for example. Our active-duty service members, veterans,

and their families deserve adequate runways to the civilian

workforce.

Apprenticeship pathways: We have promoted alternative

paths to licensure in the civilian world, working with Funeral

Directors, Cosmetologists, Barbers, and Pharmacy Technicians

to offer young Vermonters experience-based access to those

professions. Vermonters should be able to train into these professions

without having to leave the state or incur student debt

- a huge saving in cost and time for young Vermonters just getting

into the workforce.

• • •

• • •

• • •

Welcoming new Americans and helping them get to work:

we allow professionals trained all over the world to have their

credentials verified and recognized right here in Vermont, without

wasting hard-won skills or repeating an entire degree.

Second-chance determinations: a criminal conviction is not a

permanent or automatic barrier to becoming licensed. We allow

someone with a conviction to apply, outlining their circumstance

and evidence of rehabilitation. This can be done before

they invest time or money in training or education.

Compact licensing: in February, Vermont will become a

member of the Nurse Licensure Compact, an agreement among

38 states that allows a registered nurse or practical nurse with a

compact license from any one state to practice in all of the others.

As we confront a national nursing workforce crisis, the

compact is a critical tool to make our state a more attractive

place for nurses to settle and to free our health care employers

to recruit talent as broadly as possible. We are already part of

the physician’s compact.

Cutting red tape: Every profession OPR regulates is open for

application 24/7, from anywhere in the world with internet

access, because we have taken the entire licensing process digital.

One can apply for a Vermont license without using a single

postage stamp or touching a pen.

While we work to reduce barriers, we maintain a focus on

public protection, understanding that licensing and enforcement

of licensing standards benefits both the profession regulated and

the consumers they serve. OPR makes sure licensees in 50

professions and occupations, from accountants to veterinarians,

are qualified and safe to practice. We also receive over 800

complaints of unprofessional conduct from the public each year

which we investigate and prosecute if necessary.

Licensing itself doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult to

protect the public. Regulation must only go as far as is absolutely

necessary to achieve that goal. Sometimes that even

means eliminating licensing requirements for certain professions

where there is little to no risk of harm to the public, which

we do through a sunset process. We’ve made a lot of progress

with these initiatives but there is always more to be done both

at OPR and across state government where other licensing programs

exist.

Vermonters deserve a right-sized approach that works for

everyone.

Chris Winters is Vermont’s Deputy Secretary of State and

former Director of the Office of Professional Regulation. He

has over 25 years of experience protecting Vermont consumers

while cutting red tape for Vermont’s professional workforce.

where we can collaboratively make a difference in time to

save our world as we have known it. The young have missed

out on social experiences that form their adult futures. The

poor and homeless have little means of going back to being

self-sufficient. The work force and economy are unproductive

and expensive. Climate change is burning up and flooding our

real estate and destroying wildlife, flora and fauna. Perhaps an

ice age with a new start to civilization is on the horizon. If it

happens, we deserve it after overpopulating and polluting our

continents for decades. Unfortunately it takes a direct, personal

impact on many to understand the need to change.

Valuable second and third homes stand empty for all but vacation

weeks, consumers continue to purchase unnecessary

amenities, much of the population won’t change their trash or

driving habits, plastic remains a prevalent product material,

and many continue to birth too many children. Our world is in

trouble and we need to act. If your mental health or pocket

book are not suffering, then reach out and help others. Don’t

act frivolously and spend money without conscience. I battle

with myself every time I take a trip or do something that benefits

me so I understand this dilemma. I think we can continue

to take care of ourselves provided we are thinking globally

and trying in some way to turn the heads of those who are

choosing to ignore the realities. A good start is not to judge

other’s behaviors, such as our multiplying homelessness,

without understanding their back story. Small steps like not

idling your car, recycling and composting, when done universally,

do make an environmental difference.

Whatever we do from here and whatever the consequences,

history will show over time that we could have changed our

direction. We need to change our path now, to understand and

accept reality, become compassionate, and act for the greater

good or it will be too late.

Twenty Things I had Learned by the Time I was Ten

By G. E. Shuman

Lately I’ve been

thinking a lot

about the time

of my youth. You

know, back when

rocks were soft and

dinosaurs roamed the earth. It has often

been said that life is a learning process,

although lately mine seems to be more of

a ‘forgetting’ process than anything else.

I do believe that much of what I know

now I learned by the time I was ten.

Looking back, I don’t think I was the

good little boy my mother remembers me

being. I was also probably not too bright,

based on some things I remember doing.

Why do I remember them? I haven’t a

clue. Why do I feel that I should share

them with you today? I haven’t a clue

about that, either. Anyway, here goes.

Twenty things I had learned by the time I was ten:

Number one:

Never be the first one on the playground slide if it rained

last night. (That, as with many other things, I learned the hard

way. In this case the wet way. I got a lot of attention in school

the rest of the day.)

Number two:

Do NOT fight with your older brother on your parent’s

brand-new couch. You might end up waiting in the cellar for

your dad to get home from work. (He was a softie, but we

wouldn’t learn that for several more years.)

Number three:

Sticking a butter knife into a wall socket is not the smartest

thing you could do to entertain yourself. (Somewhat selfexplanatory.)

Number four:

If you put a fever thermometer on the bathroom heater, your

mother will still make you go to school.

Number five:

Never try to give your cat a bath. (Also, self-explanatory.)

Number six:

Don’t call your friend a sissy if he’s bigger than you. (Tried

it. Didn’t like what happened next.)

Number seven:

Molasses and grasshopper poop look EXACTLY the same,

and that is where the similarity ends.

Number eight:

Never play marbles for ‘keepsies’ with my friend Alan.

After all, that is where the term ‘losing your marbles’ came

from.

Number nine:

You should never shove a raw potato onto the pastor’s car’s

tail pipe before church. (After church is better because by the

time he tries to start his car you will have already gone home.)

Number ten:

It’s okay to help your friends fill your teacher’s convertible

Day of the Dead (1985)

★★★1/2

Marxism has a pretty bad reputation these days. And

that reputation is well-deserved. Every country that

tried Marxism in the 20th Century failed. They failed

to preserve the basic human rights of their people.

Karl Marx was correct when he observed that conflict and

war is driven in large part by money. But he was way off in his

optimistic analysis of human nature.

In Marx’s theory, it is inevitable that the workers of the

world are going to take over their factories and overthrow

their capitalist governments. Then, the German historian

explained, there would be an interim period of oppression that

he called the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.

Finally, a Utopia of equality and justice would be achieved

and the Dictatorship would melt away. This is where Marx

failed us. This final step can never happen. Dictators do not

voluntary give up their power. And in the rare case that a

tyrant actually does retire, there will always be another strong

man eager to step into the power vacuum. Man’s innate desire

to lead trumps all moral considerations.

On its face, writer/director George Romero’s “Day of the

Dead” is an ultra-violent zombie flick. But “Dead” is a different

sort of horror movie, in which the true villain is human

nature.

The story begins after society has been destroyed. Millions

of flesh-eating ghouls roam the earth; man is almost extinct.

Twelve people are living in an underground research center.

They are heavily armed but impossibly outnumbered.

About half the people are soldiers looking to kill zombies

and half are scientists who want to figure out how to understand

the zombies. The two sides are perpetually at odds.

At the start, the lead soldier is killed. The scientists rejoice.

They feel like the Soviets must have felt in 1924 when Lenin

died. “Surely this must be the time when authority dissolves

away and things get great!” Nope. The poor scientists get their

own little Stalin in Captain Rhodes.

Captain Rhodes jumps right into the power vacuum and

with dry leaves after school; just

don’t get caught. (It did look pretty

cool that way, though.)

Number eleven:

If you and your friends mistakenly

trick-or-treat at the Elk’s Club

Halloween party you probably

shouldn’t drink the punch!

Number twelve:

An old pot filled with lawnmower

gas and put under that pile of dry

leaves you’re going to burn doesn’t

qualify as autumn fireworks, but

almost.

Number thirteen:

If you spill a gallon of milk on the

back seat of your family’s new car,

not telling your parents about it will

catch up with you, in about two days.

Number fourteen:

Girls don’t really have cooties. At least the pretty ones

don’t.

Number fifteen:

Never (even by mistake) step on a potato somehow left on

the top cellar stair. Your butt will end up sorer than that time

you fought with your brother on the new couch.

Number sixteen:

Taking a nap when you’re 7 or 8, across the chairs pushed

under the dining room table is fun and can provide your family

and neighbors an afternoon of healthy exercise looking for

you in the woods.

Number seventeen:

Don’t drink children’s nose drops, (they used to make

those.) unless you want to terrify your mother and sleep for

two days.

Number eighteen:

UFOs are real. (Ask me how I know this, later.)

Number nineteen:

If you wear a snow suit you can take a very comfortable

nap in a snowbank. This I learned WAYYY before I was ten.

Number twenty:

If the pigs (somehow) get out of the pen your mom will let

you skip school to catch them. (A good thing to know on test

day.)

Number twenty-one: (I thought there were only twenty. Oh

well.)

A ten-year-old really can drive a car, providing it’s an old

column-shift Rambler and you take it up into the family field

when Dad’s at work.

Number twenty-two: (My Favorite)

Nothing tastes better than a stolen watermelon.

So, as a child, maybe especially as a child, but I’m not sure

about that, we all want to be good. We’re just not very good

AT it.

Have fun and behave yourself. (At least try.)

begins ruling his mini-kingdom with fury and violence. He

doesn’t trust the scientists and he wants to shut down their

experiments.

Rhodes is an over-the-top bad guy. He does nothing but

bark orders and shout. However, he isn’t wrong. “Day of the

Dead” goes from dark to macabre in the final act when we

learn what the lead scientist has actually been working on in

secret.

George Romero has a bleak view of humanity. You can’t

trust authority. You can’t trust the military. And you can’t even

trust scientists. To this day, scientists actually experiment on

animals. Some scientists are so arrogantly certain that they are

doing noble work that they don’t think they need to exhibit

restraint or decency.

“Day of the Dead” isn’t the best George Romero movie. But

it teaches an important lesson about humanity. The reason why

Marxism and all other Utopian societies fail is that some men

blindly crave leadership and there is no way to suppress their

ambition. Civilization and civility are fragile and should not

be tossed aside in the name of fairness or justice or any other

idealistic fantasy.

Put simply: the Founding Fathers were right all along: the

best option we have is Parliamentary democracy. A society

with a constitution and a permanent legislature has a chance of

avoiding the horrors of dictatorship and tyranny.

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.

• Available in .67oz and 3.4oz

tubes, and 4oz and 13.6oz jars

• Soothing, light & greaseless

• 100% fragrance & dye free

Origins of Popular Traditions

Christmas invites popular traditions that are observed in most American homes. From

caroling to hanging your stockings with care, the origins behind the celebrations are as

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | THE WORLD

Roasts for the Holidays

The holidays are time to show up and show out

on the dining table.

Shop at the Plainfield Co-op

for the Holidays!

From Thanksgiving through the New Year (and that inevitable

resolution to eat better and work out more), it’s time

to chow down. It’s the perfect season, as Cindy Lou Who

knows, for roast beast.

ROASTED TURKEY

We start off, much like the holiday season, with roasted

turkey. Turkeys are a New World food and were eaten by ancient

peoples in the Americas for centuries before European

conquerors brought turkeys back home with them. Turkey

was eaten in England as early as the 16th century and, during

the 17th century, turkey became a common Christmastide

food in Britain. In the U.S., turkey was a common Thanksgiving

dish as early as the 1800s.

HAM

The word ham comes from the Old English ham or hom,

meaning the bend of the knee, fitting since it refers to a leg

of pork. People have been eating ham almost as long as there

have been people and pigs; even the ancient Romans had a

recipe. Hams can be dry cured in salt, wet cured in a brine or

smoked. Usually, in the U.S., hams for holiday consumption

are baked in a sweet outer coating, sometimes of honey or

brown sugar.

PRIME RIB

This is a cut of beef from the primal rib containing

anywhere from two to seven ribs. Ribeye steaks are also cut

from the standing ribs. Prime rib is a traditional Christmas

roast among the Irish, as beef was dear and it was a holiday

treat. Prime rib is made by slow-roasting the meat on the primal

rib and then portioning it after cooking, whereas ribeye

steaks are what you get when you cut it before cooking.

Roasted Goose

In Germany, roasted geese often sit on the Christmas table,

and the birds are also popular in England. They are usually

seasoned with apples, sweet chestnuts, prunes and onions,

along with mugwort or marjoram. They can be served alongside

potatoes and other root vegetables roasted in the goose

fat, which has a high smoking point and thus makes these

veggies nice and crisp.

Goose itself is a dark meat with an intense flavor that’s not

akin to turkey or chicken.

Small But Beautiful!

MON-SAT 9-7 SUN 10-7

Drinks

Nothing’s better on a freezing day that a nice,

better if it has a kick.

1/2 cup orange juice

2 cinnamon sticks

3 star anise

2 slices of orange

orange juice. Add the cinnamon sticks and star anise.

2. Pull whole cloves through the slices of orange and add to

the pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes. Serve

warm.

SALTED CARAMEL

Hot Chocolate

2 cups milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup caramels, unwrapped

4 cups milk

2 cups heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Add all the ingredients except the sea salt to a slow cooker.

A History of Caroling

You may not have gone a-wassailing, but

you’ve almost certainly heard some sleigh

bells jing-jing-jingling, either in real life

or sang ad nauseum (almost) during the

holiday season.

As it turns out, carols have been around

almost as long as Christmas itself.

A HYMNAL HISTORY

he first recorded carol dates to arond

the year 100 with the “Angels Hymn.”

It was around then, ClassicFM says, that

Christian hymns started to take over for

traditional pagan songs sung at the winter

solstice. Over time, more Nativity-themed

songs emerged, and the Middle Ages

brought us “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”

and other songs. Many of the songs

we know today and the practice of singing

them in public places comes from the 19th

century.

CAROLS WE HAVE HEARD FOREVER,

OR AT LEAST SINCE THE 1800S

The 19th century is when Christmas started

to look — and sound — more familiar to

modern eyes and ears. Mendelssohn wrote

“Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” in 1840,

not too long after Frank Xavier Gruber and

Joseph Mohr composed “Silent Night.”

During this time, a group of carolers was

called a wait, and the singers would perform

in public spaces for passers-by, who would

reward them with food and drink for a job

well done. This tradition, eventually known

as wassailing (now know where that came

from), evolved into the groups going door to

door to sing carols. As the groups would go

around, they would demand free drink and

food from residents, and eventually, the caroling

would devolve into sort of a drunken

shouting match.

BUT WHY DO THEY ALL SOUND

KIND OF THE SAME?

It’s not your imagination. Christmas

carols are almost universally recognizable

as Christmas carols, no matter what subject

they tackle or what language they are sung

in. That’s because many of our carols are

based on medieval chord patterns that give

them a unique sound, J.W. Pepper says.

Minor chords or diminished chords are

sprinkled throughout most Christmas songs

in a way that give them a distinct feel and

immediatel identifies them as hristmass,

music experts say.

Choosing a Christmas Tree

Putting up the tree is a great memory for many families.

Now, there are lots to choose from, well beyond live tree

or fa t fear not, we’re here to help o find the perfect

tannenbaum for your family’s holiday celebrations.

LIVE

Nothing smells quite like a live Christmas tree. If you

choose to go the live route, know that your local Christmas

tree vendor may have several varieties from which to choose.

Get a tree suited to your family. If you have little hands (or

paws) around, pick a tree with softer needles.

Look for a tree that’s not so full that you can’t festoon it

with decorations; it should have a few empty spaces to show

off your cherished baubles.

Find one with a straight trunk to avoid complications

getting it in the tree stand and it should be fresh. Check for

freshness b breaking a needle in half with or fingers

fresh fir will snap fresh pines shold bend withot breaking

REUSABLE TREES

If bringing a live tree indoors isn’t your thing, the fake

trees are getting more fancy every year. The needles look

more real and, just like everything else, even Christmas trees

are more tech savvy. There are trees you can control with

your digital assistant, that will sync their lights to music and

that are controlled by remotes. Take that, disco tinsel tree.

When you’re done with your tree for the year, take it down

and store it according to the manufacturer’s directions. If

your tree is technologically advanced, this may mean considering

storing it in a climate controlled closet or other space to

avoid damage.

RECYCLING YOUR TREES

Once the season’s over, it’s time to responsibly recycle

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS | THE WORLD

your live trees. Many cities and towns will offer a service to

mulch your tree for you, or sometimes there’s a drive to create

fish and wetlands habitat sing old hristmas trees ook

into the recycling programs offered in your area and choose

the one that works best for you. Whatever you do, don’t just

put it into the trash.

The Rotary Clubs of Barre,

Central Vermont, Montpelier

& Northfield Announce...

There are different strategies for different

families. Some people exchange names and

everyone gets one present. Some people only

give to children. Still other families encourage

the giving of small gifts and necessary

items, while others blow it out with extravagant

giving.

No matter how your family gifts, there’s

always a new way to enjoy this holiday

tradition. Here are some ways you and yours

can up your gifting game.

DONATIONS

For families who love to give back and

for recipients who have everything, consider

a monthly or yearly donation. Does your

person love sloths? Sponsor a sloth and get

them regular updates on how their creature

is doing. Look for organizations that support

causes near and dear to your recipient’s heart

and do your homework. Make sure the charity

you’re considering spends their money

wisely by using websites such as Charity

Navigator.

SERVICES

Everyone appreciates the gift of time. By

giving prepaid services, such as car detailing

or lawn care, you’re giving your loved ones

that time back. You may also be treating

them to a luxury they wouldn’t normally pay

for themselves.

Other services to consider: Spa treatments,

pet care and boarding, meal delivery and

grocery delivery. And don’t forget to add

in the customary tip for your area for these

service providers.

SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

Sure, there’s the bacon-of-the-month club,

but subscription services and boxes have

gotten a lot more sophisticated. Now you

can find a cstomiable sbscription for st

about anyone and anything under the sun.

Look for boxes for pet lovers, fashionistas,

beauty products and even spices. You can

also consider paying for a whole year of

their favorite streaming media service.

AN EXPERIENCE

One thing that came out of the COVID-19

pandemic is a tendency to value experiences

over things. Consider giving your loved ones

the gift of an unforgettable experience. It

doesn’t have to be a trip out of the country,

either. If you have an animal love to buy for

this year, look at getting them a backstage

trip to a local zoo or aquarium.

One way to put into sharp focus all we have to be grateful

for is to schedule some time to give back to others. Remember

you may not just be able to walk in and volunteer;

giving back may take some planning. Some places require

training before o can work or first volnteer shift, so

take that into account.

Here are some ways to work volunteering into your family’s

holiday traditions.

HOSPITALS AND NURSING HOMES

hese are great places to volnteer all ear rond,

bt especiall dring the holidas, when people ma be

stranded in hospitals or nursing homes on their own. Ask the

hospitals if you can visit with patients that haven’t gotten

any visitors lately. Bring a deck of cards or other games and

keep them chatting while you’re there.

HOMELESS SHELTERS

Some things you may be able to do are cook and serve

meals, pack p toiletries, tos and clothes to hand ot, or

help entertain children during their stay at the shelter. Consider

rounding up your friends and family to bring donations

Thunder Road officials have unveiled an action-packed

19-event racing schedule for the 2022 season. The 63rd season

of stock car racing atop Quarry Hill features many traditional

fan-favorite events along with a few new tweaks, all of

which will again be broadcast live worldwide on FloRacing.

The season once again begins with the 24th annual

Community Bank N.A. 150 on Sunday, May 1 at 1:30 p.m. for

the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models. It’s also the

season opener for the Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers,

RK Miles Street Stocks, and Burnett Scrap Metals Road

Warriors. The annual Thunder Road Car Show is Saturday,

April 30 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. followed by open practice

for all Thunder Road divisions.

The big events keep coming with the 59th Mekkelsen RV

Memorial Day Classic on Sunday, May 29. The Tri-Track

Open Modified Series is making its inaugural Thunder Road

visit for the $10,000-to-win Granite Capital 100. On the same

afternoon, the Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models kick off the

“King of the Road” chase with the 125-lap Classic. The weekend

will also include a live performance by local rock band

Native Tongue on Saturday, May 28 at 7:00 p.m. in the Turn

3 Pavilion.

Weekly racing gets underway with a special Friday night

show on June 10. The Flying Tigers take center stage that

evening with the 75-lap opening round of the Myers Container

Service Triple Crown Series. The series continues with a

75-lap event on Thursday, July 7 and a 100-lap finale on

Thursday, August 4 at Cody Chevrolet/Cadillac Night.

The first Thursday night show is June 16, which includes

the annual visit from the New England Antique Racers

(NEAR). The Marvin Johnson Memorial Street Stock First-

Time Winner’s Race is Thursday, June 23 as part of

Community College of Vermont Night.

The Independence Day Doubleheader Weekend returns to

the Thunder Road calendar this year. Thursday, June 30 is

Scout Night plus the annual Kids Rides. Then Sunday, July 3

is the Preston’s Kia Holiday Spectacular featuring a dazzling

Northstar Fireworks display.

The July schedule also includes the 43rd Essex Equipment

Vermont Governor’s Cup on July 14, the Times Argus

Midseason Championships on July 21, and WDEV/Calkins

Portable Toilets Night on July 28. The Midseason

Championships include added distance, double points, a

driver autograph session, and double the prize money courtesy

of FloRacing.

The 38th Annual Bolduc Metal Recycling Enduro 200 and

Street Stock Special are Sunday, August 7. Weekly racing

continues with the 4th Annual Road Warrior Challenge at

North Country Federal Credit Union Night on August 11 and

Vermont Tire & Service Night on August 18, which is the

second FloRacing double-purse event of the year.

The Late Models are crowning the 2022 “King of the

Road” at the Thursday night finale on August 25. The Jet

Service Envelope/Accura Printing Night program also features

the annual “Run What U Brung” spectator races. The

ACT Late Model Tour returns on Sunday, September 4 for the

44th Optical Expressions Berlin Labor Day Classic 200,

which is paying $5,000 to win. The Flying Tiger and Street

Stock champions will be decided at the Labor Day Classic.

Thunder Road wraps up the 2022 racing season with

Northfield Savings Bank Vermont Milk Bowl Weekend from

Downstreet Housing & Community

Development Announces Interim CEO

• • •

Downstreet Housing & Community

Development (Downstreet) is excited to

announce that Connie Snow will serve as the

organization’s Interim CEO until a permanent

replacement is found for recently departed

CEO Karen Hatcher.

Hailing from Brattleboro, Snow is

renowned within Vermont’s affordable housing

industry, having spent 30 years as the

executive director of the Windham & Windsor

Housing Trust before retiring in 2017. The

seasoned executive is well-acquainted with

Downstreet’s work and has worked as a consultant

supporting the organization’s real

estate development work.

“There are few people more respected for

their experience, knowledge, and grace in the

Vermont housing world than Connie Snow,”

says Board of Trustees President, Dan Barlow.

“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her over

the last several months as a contractor for

Downstreet, and I’m thrilled that we have

such a great leader to help us through this

transition period.”

“I’m so pleased to work with the

Downstreet team during this transition period,”

says Snow. “With its strong mix of seasoned

professionals, I look forward to continuing

the important and impactful work of

providing housing opportunities for local citizens.”

Snow will began work with Downstreet

starting on November 29th. Downstreet’s

Board of Trustees is set to relaunch the organization’s

search for a permanent CEO, with

an eye to getting someone in place early in

2022.

Two Honored for Outstanding Contributions to

Conservation and Farming in Vermont

Christine Bourque of Grand Isle and Livy

Strong of Jericho were honored with conservation

awards at the Vermont Land Trust

(VLT) Annual Meeting in October.

Every year, the land trust recognizes individuals

who have made significant contributions

to conservation and farming in Vermont.

Inaugural Land and Lives Award goes to

Livy Strong of Jericho Underhill Land

Trust

This year, the land trust launched a new

award to honor an individual who has

strengthened connections between land and

lives for the enduring benefit of all.

“Vermont’s working landscape is a rich

mix of traditions as well as new challenges

and opportunities,” said VLT President &

CEO Nick Richardson. “To reflect this, the

Land and Lives Award recognizes the dynamic

nature of conservation and the importance

of relationship to land.”

Livy Strong, volunteer president and

founder of the Jericho Underhill Land Trust

(JULT), was honored with the first Land and

Lives Award. Over decades of committed

effort, JULT has conserved nearly 2,000 acres

and now owns 650+ acres in Jericho,

Richmond, and Bolton.

“Livy has been a driving force behind

JULT and the Jericho Underhill Park District

for their entire existence,” said VLT’s Bob

Heiser. “For more than 30 years, Livy has

fundraised and worked tirelessly to conserve

Mills Riverside Park, Wolfrun Natural Area,

the sledding destination Casey’s Hill, Kikas

Valley Farm, the Barber Farm, and Tomasi

Meadow. All these are open to local communities

and visitors from far and wide.”

“I feel extremely honored to receive the

inaugural Land and Lives Award,” said Livy

Strong. “This achievement would not be possible

without a strong, supportive community.

I would also like to recognize our hardworking

board members of the Jericho Underhill

Land Trust.”

Christine Bourque of Blue Heron Farm in

Grand Isle honored for service to community

The 2021 Eric Rozendaal Memorial Award

was given to Christine Bourque of Blue

Heron Farm. Bourque will receive a $5,000

award in recognition of outstanding service to

community, land stewardship, and innovation.

Christine Bourque, along with her husband

Adam Farris and their two daughters Sadie

and Delia, have been running Blue Heron

Farm for 17 years, building it up from a derelict

hay field into a certified organic diversified

farm that they conserved with VLT in

2012.

“They are deeply committed to serving

their community,” said VLT’s Maggie Donin.

“Christine was selected from a number of

excellent applicants because of her stellar

community involvement, creative response to

the pandemic that prioritized those in need,

consistent and unwavering investment in her

community, and diverse farming system.”

Governor Phil Scott Announces Release of ARPA Funds

for Critical Municipal Sewer Infrastructure

Governor Phil Scott announced that four municipalities

have been awarded $10 million in American Rescue Plan Act

(ARPA) funding to accelerate efforts to eliminate combined

sewer overflows s in their cities and towns

CSOs occur during intense or extreme storm events when

stormwater runoff overwhelms sewer system capacity. Montpelier,

orthfield, t ohnsbr and ergennes will each re

ceive a portion of this $10 million. The four municipalities

selected to receive initial funding will use these funds to

implement highpriorit proects identified in their longterm

plan for controlling sewer overflows

“Investing in sewer and stormwater infrastructure is a top

priority for my administration, because it’s good for both our

environment and the economy,” said Governor Scott. “Investments

like this can be transformative for municipalities, and

it’s exactly the type of initiative we should be pursuing with

the rare opportunity this one-time federal funding provides.”

The Governor has recommended a total of $30 million

in ARPA funding to help Vermont municipalities fast-track

planned sewer overflow redction proects hese proects

will decrease pollution in streams and lakes. $10 million was

appropriated this year to support these projects, and additional

funding is anticipated over the next three years.

Combined sewer systems collect sewage and stormwater

in the same pipe before sending it to a wastewater treatment

plant. CSOs work well under normal conditions, however,

when strong storms hit, runoff from rain and snowmelt can

overwhelms a system’s capacity. When this happens, system

operators are forced to divert some of the untreated wastewater

into lakes and rivers via outfall pipes to prevent sewage

backups into basements or onto roadways. Eliminating discharges

will improve the water quality of streams and lakes.

“Working with municipal partners, we’ve made great progress

redcing combined sewer overflows, inclding eliminat

ing more than 20 outfalls in the last three years alone,” said

genc of atral esorces ecretar lie oore ow

needed investments to upgrade this essential infrastructure

they practice rotational grazing, minimal tilling, and cover

the highest-scoring projects in the 2022 Pollution Control

Project Priority and Planning List; a process the state uses to

award infrastructure grants as well as loans. Municipalities

with existing CSOs and municipalities where CSOs have been

abated but additional work remains are also eligible for funding

and the state will be soliciting applications to the “Priority

List” to inform the need for additional appropriations during

the upcoming legislative session. These grants will complement

existing local and state funding sources.

These awards are part of a larger package of ARPA funding

available to Vermont municipalities, businesses, communities

and individuals. The Agency of Natural Resources will

distribute $100 million over the next three years to make investments

in important water infrastructure projects that help

protect and restore water quality across the state.
