Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

Supporting Local Businesses Has Never Been More Important

3 Customer Service Practices That

Make Consumers Happy

In 2009, a handful of protest songs posted to

YouTube created quite a stir. After their guitars were

mishandled and damaged while traveling on United

Airlines, the Canadian folk duo Sons of Maxwell

attempted to negotiate with the airline in an effort

to be reimbursed for the damage. Those negotiations

ultimately proved fruitless, so the rockers took

to YouTube, posting a series of comical songs and

videos.

While the songs became viral and drew many

a laugh, the people at United Airlines, and their

shareholders, were not laughing. The bad publicity

sparked by the videos caused United stock to plummet,

costing shareholders as much as $180 million.

Incidents like that highlight the importance of

exceptional customer service, especially in regard to

small businesses. Industry giants like United Airlines

can no doubt afford some bad publicity, but small,

locally owned businesses operate on much thinner

margins.

In recognition of the effects bad customer experiences

can have on their businesses, business owners

can emphasize the following three strategies to keep

customers happy.

1. Encourage customer input.

Business owners may not have their boots on the

ground every day, so encouraging customer input

may be the only way for business owners to get a

handle on what it’s like to be their customer. That input

can be used as a springboard to making positive

changes that make customers happy, and it also can

be used to help business owners recognize which

staff members are going above and beyond to make

sure customers have positive experiences.

2. Respond to reviews.

A 2018 survey from Review Trackers found that 63

percent of reviewers never received a response to

their reviews. Engaging with customers is vital for

small businesses. Consumers appreciate it when

business owners respond to their reviews. Customers

who leave negative reviews are more likely to put

such experiences behind them if business owners

reach out and seek their input while assuring that

they’ll work to provide better experiences in the

future. Responding to customers who share positive

experiences takes little or no time at all and it’s a

thoughtful gesture to thank customers who take the

time to leave positive reviews.

3. Get personal with customers.

A personal experience drives many consumers to

support local businesses. Taking time to be cordial

with customers also is a great way to learn about

their needs and wants so you can better serve them,

potentially turning them into highly valuable repeat

customers. Repeat business is vital to the survival

of small businesses. In fact, a 2018 survey from

InMoment found that 77 percent of consumers

acknowledge having had relationships with specific

brands for 10 years or more. Getting personal can lay

the foundation for customer-business relationships

that can last for years to come.

Customer service is vital for small businesses, which

can employ various practices to keep customers

happy and coming back.

Always Good News

Montpelier Alive announced that applications

are being accepted for its 2021 Downtown

Events Grant Program. Montpelier

Alive works to create a vibrant and livable

Montpelier by celebrating its heart and soul:

its downtown. A great way to celebrate is to

bring community together through events!

One of the many ways Montpelier Alive supports

downtown events is through its Downtown

Event Grant Program.

“Montpelier has an incredible lineup of

annual events,” said Montpelier Alive Executive

Director Dan Groberg. “Our Downtown

Event Grant Program is a way to strengthen

and grow existing events and help new Montpelier

events get off the ground.”

In 2021, a total of $5,000 is available with

a maximum award of $2,000 for any single

grant. Funding will be granted to individuals

and/or entities for development and implementation

of a program, festival, or event that

promotes and enhances the vibrancy of downtown

Montpelier.

Eligible events, programs and/or festivals

will be held on or before April 1, 2022. Applications

are especially encouraged for events

that celebrate the diversity of our community

and those produced by BIPOC-led or focused

organizations.

Grantees will receive: a cash award, event

consulting services from Montpelier Alive’s

staff, enhanced promotional support from

Montpelier Alive, access to Montpelier

Alive’s event lending library, and more. Grant

applications can be found online at www.

montpelieralive.org/eventgrant, and must be

submitted electronically on or before Friday,

May 28, 2021 at 5pm. Funding for the

program is provided through the Montpelier

Downtown Improvement District.

Montpelier Alive celebrates the City of

Montpelier. We work with partners to sustain

and build upon Montpelier’s vibrant downtown

community by offering and supporting

special events and activities and by promoting

City businesses. We work to ensure a thriving

local economy for Montpelier and to preserve

the city’s historic character and unique sense

of place.

Bi-State Primary Care Association is

pleased to announce its 2021 Bi-State Awards.

Nominated by their colleagues and Bi-State’s

NH and VT leadership, the honorees will

receive awards in recognition of their outstanding

efforts to improve the health of

Vermonters. A prerecorded video of the

Awards Ceremony will air on May 19 during

the live stream cast of Bi-State’s Primary

Care Conference. The video will be publicly

available on May 20th on Bi-State’s website,

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube platforms.

Bi-State’s Board of Directors’ Chair

Award – Hunger Free Vermont and Vermont

Foodbank: Bi-State’s Board of Directors’

Chair Award “honors individuals who have

made outstanding contributions to Bi-State’s

mission to ensure access to health care for

vulnerable populations in Vermont and New

Hampshire.” Vermont has long recognized

the role that reliable access to nutritious food

plays in ensuring good health. Bi-State health

center members rely on the support of the

Vermont Foodbank and Hunger Free Vermont

to elevate food security for their patients.

Both organizations responded rapidly to the

skyrocketing need for food as the pandemic

worsened by providing more than 8 million

pounds of food. They mobilized the

“VeggieVanGo” program to bring local food

to health care providers on the front lines.

Hunger Free VT and the VT Foodbank are

highly regarded resources to organizations

and health centers that participate in the statewide

and national conversation on food insecurity

and overcoming hunger in Vermont.

The Outstanding Clinician Award –

Bradley Berryhill, MD, Chief Medical

Officer, Community Health: Bi-State’s

Outstanding Clinician Award honors primary

care clinicians whose exemplary skills and

service have made a significant impact on the

health of underserved patients and the communities

in which they serve. As the chief

medical officer, Dr. Berryhill oversees medical

care at Vermont’s largest FQHC, three

skilled nursing facilities, and has a robust

primary care practice. His compassionate

approach has been a comfort and bright spot

for his colleagues. He works long days and

into the evenings to ensure his patients continue

to receive equitable, high quality, and

safe primary care throughout the pandemic.

Dr. Berryhill’s staff regards him as “a true

warrior on the front lines and a Samaritan for

our community.”

The Public Service Award – Breena

Holmes, MD, Senior Faculty, Vermont Child

Health Improvement Program: Bi-State’s

Public Service Award “honors individuals

whose position allows them to make extraordinary

contributions in the area of public

health and primary care access in Vermont

and New Hampshire.” Dr. Holmes served as

the director of the Maternal and Child Health

Division at the VT Department of Health for

ten years. She took a very active role in

Vermont’s response to COVID-19 especially

in the area of COVID-19 testing and how to

reopen the schools. Through her work, supported

by strong state leadership, Vermont

opened schools safely. Dr. Holmes is a strong

advocate for primary care, the role of

Vermont’s Federally Qualified Health Centers

(FQHCs) within the health care system, and

the importance of care coordination to ensure

primary and specialty health care providers,

patient caregivers, and the patient communicate

and agree upon a plan of care.

About Bi-State Primary Care Association

Bi-State Primary Care Association is a

501(c)3 nonprofit organization, formed by

two health and social service leaders in 1986

to expand access to health care in Vermont

and New Hampshire. Today, Bi-State represents

31 member organizations across both

states that provide comprehensive primary

care services to over 300,000 patients at 142

locations.

Outpouring of Generosity from Charitable

Vermonters Fuels Record-Setting Year for Giving

The Vermont Community Foundation announced

that its charitable giving hit an alltime

high in 2020. Powered by Vermonters

who stepped up to help vulnerable neighbors

during the pandemic, the Community

Foundation, its fundholders, and charitable

partners made $31.9 million in grants, more

than 90 percent of which went directly into

Vermont communities. This represents a 24

percent increase from 2019 and more than

a 70 percent increase from 2018 grantmaking.

Vermont Community Foundation grants

in 2020 also represent nearly a quarter of all

annual philanthropic grantmaking in the state

in a typical year according to data from the

Foundation Center.

“Last year was extraordinarily challenging

for so many, but it also revealed the best of

Vermonters and the power of what we can do

together,” says Vermont Community Foundation

President and CEO Dan Smith. “From

college and career training to food access,

housing, equity and belonging, wellness, and

youth programs—not to mention starting to

address systemic challenges that make Vermont

uniquely vulnerable to disruptions like

the pandemic—the breadth of what was accomplished

across Vermont communities cannot

be overstated.”

The dramatic increase in grantmaking was

driven by the VT COVID-19 Response Fund,

through which more than $8.7 million has

been granted since the start of the pandemic

to support basic needs and fund five economic

and social recovery initiatives. At the heart of

the Community Foundation’s discretionary

grantmaking is closing the opportunity gap

in Vermont. As elsewhere, the conditions that

hold Vermonters back by geography, by race,

and by family background were accelerated

by the pandemic and continue to impact recovery

efforts and long-term community resilience.

Highlights of the Community Foundation’s

discretionary grantmaking from 2020

include:

• A $150,000 grant to the Vermont School

Boards Association, the Vermont Principals’

Association, and the Vermont Superintendents

Association to facilitate learning around

equity, power, and privilege so they can support

individual members to implement best

practices on the ground. A $50,000 grant to

the Vermont League of Cities and Towns to

support similar work with municipalities.

• Grants totaling $340,000 to Vermont Technical

College ($145,000) and Community College

of Vermont ($195,000) to make the seven

Best Bet career training programs identified

by the J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation

affordable for Vermonters in 2021. This

set of grants also effectively demonstrated

to state policymakers how funding from the

American Rescue Plan could be used to support

college and career training.

Grantmaking from the Community Foundation’s

donor advised fundholders also increased,

contributing more than $6 million to

the VT COVID-19 Response Fund to support

a coordinated pandemic response as well as

giving directly to nonprofit organizations who

are the backbone of Vermont’s communities.

Highlights of donor advised fund grantmaking

from 2020 include:

• A new donor advised fund dedicated to racial

equity made close to $100,000 in grants

to four nonprofits committed to supporting

BIPOC communities—Migrant Justice, Association

of Africans Living in Vermont, Vermont

New American Advisory Council, and

Abenaki Helping Abenaki (AHA).

• A $100,000 grant to Capstone Community

Grow-A-Row for the Hardwick

Area Food Pantry and Craftsbury/

Albany Satellite Sites

The Hardwick Area food Pantry invites gardeners and farmers

to dedicate a row of your garden to alleviate hunger in our

community. Encourage your friends, neighbors and congregations

to do the same! You can also donate any surplus of fresh

garden produce, even if it wasn’t originally planted for donation!

Here’s How You Can Help!

If you have extra room in your garden, plant an extra row

and dedicate it to any one of the three HAFP sites. Our sites

are not set-up for food processing, so we ask that all donations

are clean and good quality. Donations of any freshly picked

fruits, vegetables and herbs are always welcome. The fresher

the better!

Have questions or are interested in participating? Contact

the AFP representative of the specific site you would like to

donate to.

Barre Art Splash 2021

Barre Rotary is pleased to announce the installation

of 37 art items on Main Street, Barre

for the Barre Art Splash 2021. ach fiberglass

art item a cat, dog or race car is sponsored by

local businesses and individuals and decorated

by a local artist. f particular note, this public

art installation features two separate race car

models, the 1932 Ford, Three Window Coupe

and the Late Model race car. Arcana Workshop,

builder of Strange Things, manufactured all the

race cars right here in Barre. This is just one way

in which this Barre otary project is promoting

business in downtown Barre.

Taking inspiration from the Catskills, N annual

art event, Barre Art Splash is the brainchild

of Barre Rotarian, Karl A. Rinker. With the collaboration

of local businesses, Barre otary

members, the Central Vermont Paletteers, and

innumerable local artists and volunteers, this

project features a CVI-safe art installation

for the enjoyment of our community, to draw

visitors to downtown Barre to browse, shop

and eat, and to generate fundraising dollars to

support Barre otary’s many good works in

our community. Barre Art Splash will continue

through abor ay. The art items will be auctioned

off on September 18th at the Vermont

Granite Museum of Barre. Proceeds from the

auction will recognize the artists but largely will

benefit Barre otary’s good work projects.

This is not the first time that Barre otary has

installed public art to benefit and beautify the

community. In une 2019, the Club installed a

200-foot mural on a formerly dilapidated retaining

wall on Summer Street in Barre. The mural,

which features the four seasons of Vermont and

has numerous hidden artifacts highlighting

aspects of Vermont and Barre history, was also

a collaboration between Barre otary, area businesses,

numerous volunteers, the City of Barre,

and the Central Vermont Paletteers. This is a

permanent installation and is maintained annually

by Barre otary and the Paletteers.

Vermont’s Conservation Districts

Receive $1.5M Grant to Expand

Water Quality Protection and

Habitat Restoration Efforts

The State Natural Resources Conservation Council (NRCC)

has been awarded a $1.5 million grant by the U.S. Department

of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service

(NRCS) Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)

to support its Vermont Stream Restoration and Protection Program.

Vermont’s Natural Resources Conservation Districts will

deliver environmental and habitat benefits including improved

aquatic organism passage and water quality protection

measures through increased project implementation, including

stream restoration, culvert replacement, and agricultural

erosion and runoff prevention projects. The program will deliver

technical and financial assistance to landowners across

four prioritized river basins: the Winooski, Otter Creek, and

Lamoille River Basins, as well as the Crosby Brook Watershed.

The funding will focus on reviews of watershed planning

documentation, conservation technical assistance, project

implementation, and partner coordination to improve

aquatic organism passage, restore stream and streamside

habitats, and protect water quality. These projects will assist

farmers in complying with the state’s Required Agricultural

Practices (RAPs) and reduce sediment and nutrient loading to

Vermont’s surface waters when implemented on agricultural

lands. The watershed planning efforts used to identify projects

will ensure that investments and conservation impacts are optimized

across multiple natural resource sectors. Funding for

these efforts will extend through 2026.

“Vermont NRCS is excited about this partnership with the

Conservation Districts and the State Natural Resources Conservation

Council that will help deliver technical and financial

assistance to landowners in prioritized river basins and improve

soil and water quality,” said Vermont NRCS State Conservationist

Vicky Drew.

In addition to NRCS, Conservation Districts will partner

with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Vermont Department

of Environmental Conservation, the Vermont Agency

of Agriculture, Food and Markets, the Vermont Association

of Conservation istricts (VAC), and NCC. The benefits

of stream restoration have been identified by all partners as

critical to restoring stream equilibrium, protecting Vermont’s

fish and wildlife populations, and improving flood resiliency.

With more than 20 years of collaboration, the partners’ input,

assessment, and planning will ensure the implementation of

projects with the highest environmental and economic benefits.

Jill Arace, Executive Director of VACD and Associate

Member of NRCC, says: “This is an exciting opportunity that

will enable Vermont’s Conservation Districts to build upon

their Trees for Streams and Soil Health programs to support

farmers’ efforts to enhance streamside habitats and protect

water quality.” Created by the Vermont Soil Conservation Act

of 1939, Conservation Districts have long been dedicated to

working with landowners and communities to promote the

sustainable use of Vermont’s natural resources. RCPP will extend

this mission and, as collaborators and service providers,

Conservation Districts will ensure that projects are addressed

from a local prescriptive. Districts will leverage knowledge

and expertise developed through years of community engagement

and work with landowners to address Vermont’s water

quality concerns.

The grant comes from the 2020/2021 Regional Conservation

Partnership Program (RCPP), an initiative that enables

partners to address on-farm, watershed, and regional natural

resource concerns. Through RCPP, the U.S. Department of

Agriculture is investing $330 million in 85 locally driven,

public-private partnerships that address water quality, soil

health, and wildlife habitat to mitigate the impacts of climate

change. As project leads, Conservation Districts will accelerate

the impact of Vermont’s ongoing clean water and farm

stewardship programs. For more information and to view

an interactive map of all awarded RCPP projects, click here:

https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/national/

newsroom/releases/?cid=NRCSEPRD1769025.

Vermont’s Natural Resources Conservation Districts were

created by the Soil Conservation Act of 1939. Vermont’s 14

conservation districts work directly with landowners, communities,

and partner organizations to conserve, protect, and use

Vermont’s natural resources. Vermont’s Conservation Districts

promote water quality through education, agriculture, forestry,

watershed protection, and urban conservation programs.

The State Natural Resources Conservation Council (NRCC)

is a state Agency serving Vermont’s 14 Natural Resources

Conservation Districts. NRCC’s mission is to advance conservation

and water quality efforts in Vermont by providing strategic

guidance and operational support to Conservation Districts,

contributing a local perspective on state conservation

policies, and facilitating the sharing of information among

members and partners.

Camp Meade Announces Bread and Puppet Premiere Performance

Bread & Puppet will present the Vermont premiere of Declaration

of Light at Camp Meade in Middlesex on Saturday,

May 22, a celebration of the return of the light, presented at

the height of spring. The Cheap Art Sale will begin at 1 p.m.

and the Declaration of Light will commence at 4:30.

The Glover-based theater troupe’s show is a culmination of

and transformation of a series of short shows presented during

the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2020 while Bread & Puppet company

members were making final preparations for a nationwide

spring tour that the pandemic would soon force them to

cancel, Bread & Puppet director, Peter Schumann, was working

on a new series of paintings driven by imagery of human

hands and texts exploring the concepts of light and darkness.

Schumann painted these new pictures with discount latex

house paints on discarded hotel bedsheets donated by a friend.

After Bread & Puppet’s spring national tour was cancelled,

and as prohibitions on theater performances remained in effect

in Vermont, the company turned its attention to creating short

shows based on Schumann’s recent paintings, Schumann’s

texts on light and darkness, and the daily news – performing

these short shows as cheer-up performances in the driveways

of friends and neighbors, and for unsuspecting shoppers in the

parking lots of local big box stores.

The May 22 performance of Declaration of Light is a “celebration

of protest and resilience in the face of intolerable

circumstances, and a passionate call for ‘underneath light ...

that ... derives its power from its necessity, applying its divine

strength where it is most needed,’” explained troupe spokesperson

Joshua Krugman.

Bread & Puppet’s themes about social justice are a good

match for the philosophy of Russ Bennett, Alan Newman and

Mike Pelchar, the three owners of Planetary Matters which

owns Camp Meade and several other nearby properties.

“Their work always touches on the broader societal and

topical currents in our society. Their work is always relevant

and offers an excellent perspective on where we are and where

we might go,” Bennett explained.

He said he and his partners are striving to build community

at Camp Meade, to provide a privately-owned public space for

gathering, for theater, for music, for food and for fellowship

and more.

“Our core values align,” Bennett said of Bread & Puppet.

“We’re about strengthening community and supporting businesses

that are creating products in ways that respect the planet

and each other. We’re about treating people with respect and

you are feeling better. After each appointment, we will clean.

You can sign up in advance.

Curbside Services Continue

Even though we are offering appointments, we will still

offer curbside services M 10:30-5:30pm, T 2:30-6:30pm, W

10:30-5:30, FR 2:30-6:30pm and SAT 10:30-2:30pm. Call us,

paying them a livable wage and that matches up with Bread

& Puppet.”

But beyond the shared values, Bread and Puppet offers

spectacular theater and pageantry.

“They’re a world-class theater company and have toured

the globe for decades. Not everyone can trek to their headquarters

in Glover and so we’ll bring them to central Vermont

and pay them to support the arts,” Bennett added.

In addition to the 4:30 p.m. performance, the day will feature

a Cheap Art sale from 1 p.m. through and after the show.

Cheap Art, for those not in the know, is a tenet of the Bread &

Puppet vibe. The Cheap Art manifesto on the theater troupe’s

website spells out the why of selling inexpensive pieces of art.

“People have been thinking too long that art is a privilege

of the museums and the rich. Art is not business. It does not

belong to banks and fancy investors. Art is food. You can’t eat

it but it feeds you. Art has to be cheap and available to everybody,”

the manifesto reads in part.

“We’ll have the Cheap Art sale and food and drink and there

will be an exhibition of Peter Shuman’s new tapestries about

the Declaration of Light painted on sheets,” Bennett said.

Bennett is no stranger to Bread & Puppet, having toured

with them in Caracas, Venezuela as well as countless places

in the country from the 1970’s onward. e first encountered

them when the troupe was in residence at Goddard College

and found their work profound. When they moved to Glover

he began volunteering and helping to build sets and puppets

and performing with the oversize puppets.

“It was pretty fun to take the big puppets and dance them

around. But that thought process behind their work is so deep.

It’s hard not to find it compelling. And so many interesting

people have been involved over the years,” he said.

The Camp Meade performance will be limited to 300 people

and masks will be required. There will be ovals on the

green with four chairs in each oval and six feet of distance

between the ovals.

Tickets can be purchased on the website or via Camp

Meade’s Facebook page. Check out the website for more

events coming this summer as well, including the Harwood

Union Spring musical The Fantasticks opening last Thursday,

Bee & Friends Ballet on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend,

the Salvation Farms Aid event, a Central Vermont Veterans’

Town Hall and much more.

Lost Nation Theater Presents a Reading of the

New Play ‘Going Up The Country’

They say you’ve got to know the past to move forward, and

in Eric Peterson’s stage adaptation of Yvonne Daley’s book

Going Up the Country with music by John Foley, we get to

do just that!

ost Nation Theater is flying high because for the first time

in 15 months, we’ll have multiple actors and musicians gathered

on our stage performing live for you a reading of this new

musical play “Going Up The Country!” on Wednesday, May

19th at 7 p.m.

Although restrictions prohibit an audience in the theater itself,

the live-stream – with an uninhibited staff along with an

invited guest or two reacting to the show, – you’ll feel like

you are there in the theater too. Then stay online to participate

in the discussion after the show with the creators Peterson &

Foley, the director, and actors. Our gift to you: it’s Free!

This new musical play by Eric Peterson and composer

John Foley (of Pump Boys & Dinettes) based on Yvonne Daley’s

book “Going up the Country” begins when the hippies,

dreamers, freaks, and radicals moved to Vermont and explores

how the counterculture changed Vermont and offers hope for

America. Yvonne Daley is a journalist, author, educator, and

publisher, concentrating on issues at the heart of what it is to

be living on this beautiful planet.

Lost Nation Theater’s Founding Artistic Director Kim Allen

Bent leads a talented cast of four – including G. Richard

Ames, Erin Galligan Baldwin, Maren Langdon Spillane, and

Dominic Spillane in the reading and the music will be performed

by composer John Foley and cast.

Playwright Eric Peterson (founder of Bennington’s Oldcastle

Theatre) offers this:

“Yvonne Daley has written an important Vermont and

American history book. As members of the hitchhiking, anti-war,

free love, weed smoking, tie dyed, rock music, lefty

politics, hippie generation ourselves, John & I enjoyed

reminiscing about our lives in the late, semi-lamented time

while learning a great deal about how much the long-hairs

changed Vermont. It wasn’t just music that changed but also

the state, and the nation’s politics, health care, clothing, and

• • •

yes, even ice cream.”

This will be LNT’s second reading of the script – and luckily

the actors who read the first working script last fall were

available to work on this reading as well, giving added depth

to the reading and their reactions to the play’s development.

Actor Maren Langdon Spillane puts it this way:

“I love to be involved in the process of working on a new

play, and the opportunity to revisit a script we’ve previously

worked on and see how it’s developed is exciting.”

Plus, this time round, we’ll get to perform all the songs.

ric Peterson who first met NT Founder im Bent back

in the 60’s at Vermont Principal Association “One Act Drama

Festivals” as high school students continues:

“We’re grateful to Kim (Bent) and Kathleen (Keenan) and

Lost Nation Theater for supporting new work, and particularly

new work about Vermont. And particularly our work as we

continue developing the play. The actors have been enthusiastically

jumping in and adding so much with their enthusiasm

and talent. We are excited about the next steps as we work

toward a full stage production.”

Join us live online Wednesday May 19 at 7 p.m. - and then

on demand through 11:59 p.m. Friday, May 28th at lostnationtheater.org

Vermont, has opened appointments for those age 12+ consistent

with recent CDC ACIP recommendations. In addition, the

100% employee-owned company is introducing an exclusive

“comfort vaccination experience” through a partnership with

Pain Care Labs.

Kinney’s Pharmacists have been specially trained in immunization

comfort techniques and take the “sting” out of shots

with Buzzy® the Vaccine Bee. Buzzy® is a patented bumble

bee-shaped device that simultaneously applies ice and vibration

to desensitize before the injection as well as distract and

disrupt pain transmission during the poke itself for a dramatically

more comfortable experience. Buzzy was designed to

help children and adults who have needle fear and/or sensitivity

and is only available from Kinney Drugs Pharmacists.

“We have used Buzzy® effectively in clinical settings such

as pediatric flu clinics with excellent patient response.

Clinically, Buzzy® uses natural ‘gate control’ pain relief by

confusing the body’s own nerves, thereby dulling or even

eliminating sharp pain. When nerves receive non-painful signals

such as vibration or cold, the brain ‘closes the gate’ on

Hannaford Donates $50,000 to Support Mental Health

Awareness and Resources In Vermont

Hannaford and the Hannaford Charitable Foundation jointly

announced a $50,000 donation to the National Alliance on

Mental Illness (NAMI) of Vermont to help build a strong

network of resources for individuals affected by mental illness

or mental health challenges throughout Vermont.

The $50,000 donation will help support NAMI Vermont’s

efforts to raise awareness and conduct outreach around mental

health and illness throughout the state. NAMI Vermont provides

advocacy, education, support and public awareness to

individuals and families affected by mental illness.

The donation is one part of an overall $400,000 commitment

from Hannaford to support the work of NAMI branches

in New England and New York as they work to expand mental

health programs and services to individuals and families most

directly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, including frontline

workers, parents, young adults, and the elderly.

“Mental health is integral to the health and well-being of

our associates, our families and our communities. By raising

awareness and reducing stigma, we hope that more people

will talk about their mental health experiences or seek help or

support,” said Nicole Devoe-Lewis, Senior Vice President of

Retail Operations and member of the Hannaford Charitable

Foundation. “We thank the National Alliance on Mental

Illness for their dedication to making affordable mental health

support more accessible to all individuals.”

In addition to using the funding to support mental health

awareness and outreach, NAMI Vermont will work to enhance

mental health services and programs throughout Vermont,

including virtual support groups and educational programs for

family members, partners and friends of individuals living

with mental illness or experiencing substance abuse.

“We are extremely grateful for Hannaford Supermarkets

and Hannaford Charitable Foundation’s invaluable donation

and partnership with NAMI Vermont,” said Laurie Emerson,

Executive Director of NAMI Vermont. “We are looking forward

to expanding our mental health resources, support and

education throughout Vermont. Hannaford’s donation will

truly make a difference to bring awareness about mental

health and let people know that they are not alone.”

The announcement coincides with a time of increased need

for mental health resources resulting from the pandemic,

which brought numerous emotional and physical challenges,

including social isolation; illness and death; job loss; and feelings

of fear and anger.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont Proposes Lower Premiums in 2022

For the first time since the inception of the Affordable Care

Act, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (Blue Cross) can

recommend a premium reduction. Compared with last year,

the proposal is to lower overall health insurance premiums

collected by almost one percent (-0.9%). This is the overall

rate change prior to unmerging the individual and small group

market.

This recommended rate reduction is the direct result of

Blue Cross cost containment initiatives. The sharp increases

in specialty pharmaceutical prices and higher than normal

hospital budgets approved by the Green Mountain Care Board

(GMCB) for 2022 are driving underlying increases in the

range of 7%. Our efforts to contain costs, primarily though

our new Vermont Blue Rx prescription drug program, outweigh

the combined drug and provider price increases. This

innovative prescription drug benefit service will improve the

consumer experience, drive better health outcomes and lower

costs for members, providers, and employers.

This rate reduction is not because of the impact of COVID-

19 on our health care system. Blue Cross did not include the

costs of COVID-19 in premiums. All COVID-19 testing, vaccine,

and treatment costs will continue to be covered by member

reserves until it becomes part of the normal seasonal

health cycle. We provide our customers a vast array of health

services, cost-saving initiatives, care coordination, and prescription

drug management along with active participation in

health care reform. All of these benefits come with very low

administrative costs.

This year’s rate filing is more complicated than usual

because the Vermont Legislature took a momentous step by

unmerging the pooled risk of the individual and small group

health insurance policy holders. For one year only, people

who purchase health insurance on their own and people who

are supported by their employer – businesses, non-profits and

pain. We are delighted to partner with Pain Care Labs to be

the only pharmacy in our area to offer comfort immunizations

with Buzzy®”, said Dr. Shannon Miller, Director of Patient

Outcomes for Kinney Drugs.

Patients can learn more about comfort immunization techniques

and Buzzy® the Vaccine Bee and schedule a “stingfree”

immunization at www.KinneyDrugs.com.

According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control

and Prevention (CDC), U.S adults are experiencing elevated

adverse mental health conditions associated with Covid-19,

including increased depression and anxiety. The CDC also

found that the number of adults with recent symptoms of an

anxiety or depressive disorder increased from 36.4 to 41.5

percent; while the percentage of individuals reporting unmet

mental health care needs increased from 9.2 to 11.7 percent

between August 2020 and February 2021.

Throughout May, Hannaford associates will recognize

Mental Health Awareness Month and the importance of destigmatizing

mental illnesses by wearing green shirts and ribbons

signifying the color associated with mental health

awareness. These in-store efforts will occur in concert with a

month-long awareness campaign designed to empower leaders

and associates with the tools they need to identify and

manage mental health, wellness and safety as a community of

care.

Month and the National Alliance on Mental Illness, visit

About the Hannaford Charitable Foundation

The mission of the Hannaford Charitable Foundation is to

invest in creating and sustaining healthy communities through

providing support to non-profit programs that focus on the

improvement of the root causes impacting the quality of life

for our neighbors, customers and associates. Founded in

1994, the Foundation has given over $14 million to organizations

in the New England region.

About NAMI Vermont

NAMI Vermont is the independent Vermont chapter of the

National Alliance on Mental Illness. We are a statewide, nonprofit,

501c3, grassroots, volunteer organization comprised of

people who live with a mental health condition, family members,

and advocates. As our mission, NAMI Vermont supports,

educates and advocates so that all communities, families,

and individuals affected by mental illness or mental

health challenges can build better lives.

municipalities with 100 employees or fewer – are separate for

the purpose of calculating their premiums. This is possible

because of the significant federal health care benefits for individuals

and families in the American Rescue Plan Act

(ARPA).

“This has been an unprecedented time with so much uncertainty,

but I am pleased that we are able to lower premiums for

our members,” said Don George, President and CEO of Blue

Cross. “Our company’s cost containment efforts and our

strong, unqualified support of unmerging the markets clearly

demonstrates our commitment to doing everything possible to

help our customers, especially this year when so many are in

need.”

When these markets are separated, the result is an unprecedented

-7.8% reduction in small employer premiums for the

2022 plan year. Vermont’s small businesses, non-profits and

municipalities are no longer spending millions each year to

subsidize the individual market. This responsibility is shifted

to the federal funds that are part of the Affordable Care Act.

There is a corresponding increase in individual premium rates

of 7.9% that is offset for most families by the new ARPA

subsidies. We are committed to helping our members transition

to direct enrollment through Vermont Health Connect in

order to obtain these benefits.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is Vermont’s only

local, not-for-profit health plan. For over 70 years, the company

has been enhancing the health and well-being of the

Vermonters by offering innovative plans to individuals,

seniors and businesses. Our employees are dedicated to developing

new ways to support high quality care and programs

and events that promote health and wellness. Blue Cross and

Blue Shield of Vermont is an independent licensee of the Blue

The amendment extends that effective date of the Administrative

Order until July 5, 2021, based on the projections of

public-health experts concerning the course of the pandemic.

Although the Court will make amendments to the Administrative

Order as conditions change, at least some provisions of

the Administrative Order will continue to be necessary due to

the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a letter sent to the Agency of Education (AOE) , the

ACLU and the Disability Law Project of Vermont Legal Aid

are calling for an end to funding school police with Medicaid

reimbursements. With assistance from the Police Out of

Schools Coalition and Neighbors for a Safer St. Albans, the

groups recently learned that AOE has allowed at least two

Vermont school systems Maple un Unified School istrict

in St. Albans and North Country Supervisory Union – to use

Medicaid funds to pay for school cops, an apparent violation

of state law.

The organizations note that neither the federal government

nor the Vermont General Assembly ever contemplated using

Medicaid to subsidize police in schools, a practice that runs

counter to Medicaid’s purpose of providing medical assistance,

rehabilitation, and other services to families, including

students with disabilities, and Vermont’s policy of directing

the funds to support children with disabilities and students’

academic achievement.

The letter states, “There is no link between the presence

of police in schools and programs designed to support students

with disabilities or student achievement in accordance

with education standards. Moreover, there is no conclusive

evidence that police in schools increase student safety. On the

contrary, studies show that police in schools make students

feel less safe, more anxious, have a negative impact on educational

achievement, and are associated with high rates of

exclusionary discipline and in-school arrest.”

ACLU of Vermont Senior Staff Attorney Jay Diaz: “The

misuse of Medicaid dollars to subsidize cops in schools is unlawful

and unacceptable, especially given the complex needs

of Vermont’s students and the many documented harms that

result from overpolicing our youth. These resources should be

used to provide critical services – school psychologists, mental

health counselors, and social workers – to meet students’

varied needs in an equitable and supportive manner. Schools

that make these meaningful investments see higher attendance,

performance, and graduation rates, fewer suspensions,

and improved safety. For the sake of our children, we must

ensure our funding decisions are aligned with our values.”

According to the U.S. Department of Education’s 2015-16

Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC), Vermont schools have

more security personnel than school psychologists. A CRDC

survey from the same year showed approximately 22,000 Vermont

students report being in a school with police, but without

a psychologist, nurse, social worker, and/or counselor.

Additionally, the presence of police in school results in

Black students and students with disabilities being disproportionately

arrested and referred to law enforcement. The

CRDC showed that Vermont’s Black students were arrested or

referred to law enforcement at a rate seven times what would

be expected based on their population. Students with disabilities

were three times more likely to be arrested or referred to

police.

Vermont Legal Aid Staff Attorney Marilyn A. Mahusky:

“When in schools, police do what they are trained to do –

they are not psychologists, mental health or substance abuse

counselors, social workers, para-educators, or other support

personnel. Vermont schools should be encouraged to use

Medicaid funds in accordance with the statute to support and

improve student achievement, not to subsidize policing.”

The organizations are calling on AOE to comply with the

requirements of Title 16, revoke any existing authorization to

use Medicaid dollars to fund policing, and remind all schools

receiving Medicaid funding that the funds cannot be used for

policing.


Health Department Launches New Vaccine Promotion Campaign

As part of the state’s increasing efforts to encourage people

to get their COVID-19 vaccine, the Health Department has

launched a new outreach series featuring Vermonters sharing

what getting vaccinated means to them.

“It’s important that Vermonters share their stories with

other Vermonters. We all have different reasons for choosing

to get vaccinated, but for many of us, being able to get back

to the things we miss is high on that list,” said Health

Commissioner Mark Levine, MD. “These stories help connect

the dots from vaccines to the brighter future ahead.”

The new series can be viewed now on the department’s

YouTube channel, and will be promoted widely – including

on television, streaming services, radio, social media and

more. These Vermonters’ words are also being featured in

print ads in newspapers across the state.

In April, the Health Department opened a vaccine contest

and giveaway asking people to submit original videos, photos

or written thoughts on why getting vaccinated is important to

them. Select submissions would be featured in the new campaign,

and one lucky submitter was picked at random to

receive a $500 cash card.

Health received more than 160 entries from Vermonters of

varying ages throughout the state. Entries included written

stories, videos, photos, slideshows, and even an original

poem.

“We are committed to capturing Vermonters’ personal and

unique perspectives, and honestly, seeing what came in was

both poignant and inspiring,” said Christie Vallencourt, the

Health Department’s COVID-19 marketing lead and chronic

disease information director. “This approach was a bit of a

gamble because you don’t know what you’re going to get, but

as people will see when they watch the videos, that chance

paid off.”

Working closely with Vermont-based marketing and media

agencies Hark and Mt. Mansfield Media, the Health

Department sifted through the submissions looking for common

themes. One thing was clear: Vermonters wanted to see

and hug their loved ones again. Another theme was people

excited about getting back to the things taken for granted

before the pandemic, such as in-person celebrations, school,

basketball games and the performing arts.

Nearly 70% of Vermonters 16 and older have gotten at least

one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, with more than 50% being

fully vaccinated. Vermont continues to make vaccination as

easy as possible, from walk-in, drive-throughs, mobile clinics

and new, unique locations coordinated through a variety of

partners.

Visit healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine to make an appointment

for vaccine and see a list of clinics that allow for walkins,

with no appointment needed. You can also follow our

social media accounts @healthvermont to hear about walk-in

availability or other special opportunities.

Vermont Senate Gives Preliminary Approval to

$150M Broadband Build-out

The Vermont Senate voted unanimously in a virtual floor

setting to advance H.360 - An Act Relating to Accelerated

Community Broadband Deployment. This has been a longstanding

priority across multiple administrations and legislatures

and now state leaders believe Vermont will have the

resources necessary to connect every address to high-speed

internet.

“We want all Vermont communities to thrive in the modern

economy,” said Senate President Pro Tem Becca Balint. “The

pandemic has highlighted the absolute necessity of high-speed

internet access. We have seen too many students struggle with

remote learning and too many seniors that can’t access telehealth.

e can’t fix that instantly, but this bill demonstrates

our firm commitment to expand access to high-speed internet

for all. This is a very exciting opportunity.”

“The Legislature has known for years that access to high

speed broadband was essential for our economic, educational,

and medical future,” said Sen. Ann Cummings, Chair of the

Senate Finance Committee. “Unfortunately, until now we

haven’t had the resources to address the problem. The ARPA

funding has provided us with the necessary financial resources

to make significant progress in providing every Vermonter access

to high speed, reliable, affordable internet.”

Do not be a hero.

If you agree that the goal of life is to achieve peace and

happiness, heroism is the most important thing to avoid.

Trying to change the world will almost certainly lead to disappointment

and will not lead to enlightenment.

If I had a child who dreamt of growing up to be a hero, I

would teach her about Buddhism and Daoism and hope that

she chose one of those paths instead.

Even the greatest heroes aren’t happy. Martin Luther King

Jr. – perhaps the most admirable and successful hero of all –

did not live a happy life. Dr. King had a challenging marriage,

he was hated by people who supported segregation, and he

was harassed for years by the FBI.

If heroism couldn’t bring Dr. King happiness, what hope is

there for the rest of us?

“Serpico” tells the true story of a very successful, utterly

miserable hero.

Frank Serpico had always wanted to be a police officer. His

dream came true when he joined the NYPD in the 1960s.

Serpico (Al Pacino) quickly learns that the guys in his precinct

are taking bribes. It isn’t even a secret. Gambling is

illegal but tolerated. The police let the bookies operate as long

as they consistently hand an officer some cash, and the cops

divvy it up amongst themselves.

Frank Serpico is a rebel by nature. His fellow officers are

suspicious of his long hair, his thick mustache, and his decision

not to take bribe money. But it’s no big deal. Serpico is a

happy young man. There’s a wonderful scene where he goes

to a wild counterculture party with his artist girlfriend and gets

along with everyone.

Eventually, Serpico asks to be transferred to a precinct that

he hears is as “clean as a hound’s tooth.” It isn’t. There is an

epidemic of corruption. Police are taking protection money

from bookmakers all over the city. Serpico learns that there is

to our high-speed internet challenges. Empowering communities

with the resources and expertise they need helps ensure

this vital service will get to every student, employee, senior,

and family in our state,” said Senator Ruth Hardy.

The Senate’s version of the bill opens the door to coordination

between electric cooperatives and CUDs by creating a

property tax exemption to co-ops that string fiber under a lease

agreement with CUDs. CUDs are considered municipalities

under Vermont law and are exempt from the property tax like

a water district is.

“We want to take advantage of low interest loans our co-ops

can access, and put that money to use building broadband,”

explained Sen. Chris Pearson. “Leveraging all funds, including

significant Federal dollars, gives us the chance to bring

fiber down every last dirt road in the state. e are setting up

a process to get this done for the benefit of families and businesses

for decades to come.”

little difference between the NYPD and the Mafia. It’s The

Copia. And he wants no part of it.

This is when Frank Serpico decides to become a hero, and

the film gets stressful.

Serpico shines a spotlight on the corruption. He tells the

commissioner’s office, the mayor’s office, and the New York

Times. To his surprise, Serpico doesn’t get a lot of support.

What he does get is hatred.

Many police officers weren’t fans of the bribe money. But

almost all of them were disdainful of a rougue cop who would

rat on his fellow officers.

The young carefree Serpico who we met in the first act

becomes angry, isolated, and scared. His girlfriend is incredibly

loving and supportive, but Serpico pushes her away.

In the end, the real Frank Serpico helped clean up the

NYPD. And the legalization of gambling in the 21st Century

makes it unlikely that this Copia protection scheme will ever

rear its ugly head again.

But heroic triumph did not bring Serpico happiness. He was

a broken man, spiritually and physically.

“Serpico” tells the truth: heroism is a dark, lonely path.

Frank Serpico would have been better off taking the payoff

cash and going to more fun parties.

Vermont Opens Vaccination to Ages 12 to 15 Following

CDC Approval of Pfizer Vaccine

Vaccination registration will open to Vermonters ages 12 to

15, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s

action authorizing use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19

vaccine for this age group.

The Food & Drug Administration authorized this emergency

use of the vaccine earlier this week. On Wednesday, the

CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices overwhelmingly

recommended, and the CDC approved, this use

of the vaccine, based on clinical trial data that found it to be

safe and effective.

“With final approval now given to begin vaccinations for

those 12 to 15 years old with the Pfizer vaccine, Vermont is

ready,” said Governor Scott. “As early as tomorrow,

Vermonters in this new age band can sign up and begin receiving

their shots. My team has worked in partnership with dozens

of school districts and other partners to make this as easy

and accessible as possible. The more Vermonters who step up

BIRTH

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The following birth announcements were submitted by Gifford Medical Center

on May 9, 2021. Any questions or concerns should be addressed directly to Gifford.

and get vaccinated, the faster we’ll be able to get back to

doing more of the things we’ve missed over the past months.”

Health Commissioner Mark Levine, MD, said the vaccine

has now passed the same safety benchmarks for this younger

age group as it did for aged 16 and older.

“This gives me a lot of confidence that we can protect our

12 to 15-year-olds from COVID-19, keeping them safe and

healthy,” Dr. Levine said. “The pandemic has had a significant,

and in some ways, hidden impact on young Vermonters

– physically, mentally and emotionally. I am very glad we can

now focus our vaccination efforts on protecting our older

children, and moving Vermont forward to where they can

again enjoy life as adolescents.”

Appointments for the 12 to 15 age group can be made as

soon as Thursday morning at 8:15 a.m. by visiting healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine.

Parents or caregivers can create an

account, or use their existing account, and add a child as a

dependent. Those making appointments will only see clinics

with the Pfizer vaccine. If you need assistance, you can call

855-722-7878. Parental/caregiver consent is required for vaccination

of this age group. Consent can be given as part of the

online registration process or at a clinic in person.

The Health Department is working in partnership with the

Agency of Education to offer school-based clinics with daytime

and evening hours. These clinics will be updated in the

vaccine registration system as soon as they are scheduled, and

a listing can be found at the Agency of Education’s website.

Making an appointment is the best way to guarantee a vaccine,

but walk-in opportunities are also available and can be

found on our website healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine. Anyone

under 18 should be sure to only choose locations that offer the

Pfizer vaccine.

Certain pharmacies, including CVS and Kinney Drugs, are

also offering the Pfizer vaccine to this age group, with some

having appointments or walk-in opportunities available right

away.

Dr. Levine added that children may experience some of the

same common side effects as other young adults, such as pain

at the injection site, fever, chills, or tiredness, but these should

go away in a few days.

“Be assured these are normal signs that the body is building

up protection against COVID-19,” Dr. Levine said. “Parents

and caregivers can help by talking to their kids about what to

expect ahead of time, and can talk to their pediatrician if they

have questions.”

ARIES (March 21 to April

19) A once-harmonious

relationship appears to be

hitting some sour notes.

Spend some time together

to see why things have

gone off-key. What you learn might surprise you.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel a need to make

some changes. Good -- you can do it on a small scale

(some new clothes, for example), or go big and redecorate

your home andor office.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Control your tendency toward

early boredom. A situation in your life might be taking

a long time to develop, but patience pays off. Stay with

it.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel that you’re

on an emotional roller coaster this week. Don’t fret; just

ride it out and let things settle down. A Pisces shows understanding.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Do something different for

once -- compromise. A stubborn stand on an important issue

proves counterproductive. You need to be open to new

ideas.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A friend offers advice

that you perceive as an act of betrayal. But before you

turn against the messenger, pay attention to the message.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A year of riding an

emotional pogo stick finally settles down. Use this calmer

period to restore frayed relationships and to pursue new

opportunities.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your words can

sting, so be careful how you respond to a friend’s actions.

A calm approach could produce some surprising facts.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Be careful

about whose secrets you’re being asked to keep. They

could impose an unfair burden on a straight arrow like you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While you

prefer taking the tried-and-true course in life, be adventurous

this week and accept a challenge that can open new

vistas.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your strong

sense of justice helps you deal with a job- or school-related

situation. Stay with your principles. A Sagittarius emerges

as a supporter.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You need to build a

stronger on-the-job support system to convince doubting

colleagues that your innovative proposals are workable.

BORN THIS WEEK: You might not say much, but you’re

capable of extraordinary achievements. You are a loyal

friend and a devoted family person.

Debra Paul’s recounts of Chronic Lyme as

transcribed by Melissa Ruiz

Hello again, readers! I hope you are all well.

Last week I introduced this series to spread awareness about

this awful disease, Lyme Disease. This week I will go deeper

into the cause and symptoms of the illness.

To recap, Lyme disease is an illness caused by a bite from a

tick infected with the bacterium borrelia, specifically Borrelia

burgdorferi. There are different types of this specific bacterium

in different parts of the world, and the different variations

cause different patterns of illness (so the typical case of Lyme

disease in the US could be different from in the UK).

Fun fact (or maybe not so fun), Lyme disease gets its name

from the small Connecticut town where it was first discovered,

a hop, skip, and a jump from our own towns. A woman

brought an unusual cluster of pediatric arthritis cases to the

attention of Yale researchers in 1975. Two years later, the

researchers identified the clusters and called them “Lyme

arthritis”. Then two years after that, the name was changed to

what we know it as today, when additional symptoms, like

neurological problems and severe fatigue were linked to the

illness.

The cause of the disease wasn’t discovered until 1982 when

Dr. Burgdorfer, an international leader in the field of medical

entomology at the time, had published a paper on the infectious

agent of Lyme, getting his name placed on the spirochete

that causes the disease.

The bacteria in question lives in the blood of certain animals

such as mice, some birds and some other small animals,

and is usually harmless in them (as the saying goes, ‘Oh, to be

a bird…’).

The ticks that spread the disease get the bacteria by feeding

on these creatures by latching and sucking their blood. Should

one of these infected ticks bite a human, then they become

they become at risk for developing Lyme Disease. After a

human is bit, it usually takes about 24-48 hours for the bacteria

to pass into their system. If the tick is removed soon after

being bitten (within 24 hours), the person is less likely to

develop Lyme disease, even if the tick was infected.

Unfortunately, these nasty little buggers (puns again) are very

small, so it’s very easy to have a tick latched onto you without

noticing, and many people who develop Lyme don’t even

remember being bitten in the first place. Nice, huh?

NATURAL HEALTH CORNER | JOSHUA SINGER

recently attended a well presented conference

hosted by UVM on Integrative

I

Pain Management. One condition discussed

was fibromyalgia, highlighting how

an integrative approach to managing this

disorder is needed for those who suffer.

Fibromyalgia is one of those medical conditions

that can be all encompassing to the

body and can be challenging to manage. I wonder how many

of you reading here have been given this diagnosis. It is said

that 2% of US adults are affected by fibromyalgia, more commonly

in women than in men. In my clinical experience, the

limitations from this condition can vary from being disabled

by pain and fatigue to occasional flares when under stress that

don’t necessarily stop daily activities.

FIBROMYALGIA: PAIN, FATIGUE, AND MORE

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that is characterized by widespread

pain, fatigue, and cognitive difficulties. There are typically

mood imbalances, memory issues and sleep disturbance.

Sometimes there are digestive struggles and headaches. The

widespread pain is usually described as a constant and dull

ache, at particular points throughout the body, lasting at least

three months. People may have flare ups that have occurred

over decades. Often stress can worsen the pain. There may be

a triggering traumatic event or it may come on gradually over

time. It’s believed with this condition that there is an abnormal

increase of chemicals in the brain that signal pain. The brain’s

pain receptors seem to become over reactive to both painful

and non painful signals.

PART II

Cause and Effect.

When Life Give you Lymes

Once the bacteria is passed into the skin, they multiply and

travel into the bloodstream and then to other parts of the body

(mainly the skin, joints, nerves and heart) to raise all sorts of

Hell.

The symptoms and effects of the illness are divided into

three different stages:

The classic sign of Lyme is a rash called erythema migrans,

better known as the “bullseye rash”. The rash typically starts

out as a single, circular red mark where the bite first occured

that spreads slowly outward over several days. The rash is

usually not painful or itchy, and may even go unnoticed if the

bite had happened on your back, and certain species of the

bacterium don’t even cause the rash in the first place. And just

because the rash fades, it unfortunately doesn’t mean the

infection has faded along with it.

Flu-like symptoms usually occur in about a third of cases,

which include fatigue, aches and pains, headache, fever, chills

and neck stiffness. Often times, these symptoms are mild and

go away within a few days, even without any treatment. In

some cases, if the infection is present, the body’s immune

system will keep it from progressing further. However, in

other less fortunate cases, the disease can progress to stage

two.

Stage two Lyme, or Early Disseminated Lyme’s symptoms

can include joint problems in one or more joints, but most

commonly the knee joint. The severity of these issues can

range from episodes of mild pains, to severe arthritis. The

episodes typically last around three months.

Some infected people will develop inflammation of the

nerves, particularly around the face, causing the nerves to stop

working and may cause drooping in the side of the face.

Furthermore, inflammation of the tissues around the brain and

of the brain itself (meningitis and encephalitis, respectively)

can occur (as if it wasn’t bad enough, right?).

Some people may develop myocarditis, or inflammation of

the heart and other cardiac issues. This can cause symptoms

like dizziness, breathlessness, chest pain and palpitations.

Several areas of the skin can develop rash elsewhere from

where the tick bite occurred. These “secondary” rashes are

usually smaller than the original rash, and tend to fade within

three to four weeks. Occasionally, blue-red nodules called

lympocytomas may form on the skin.

Then on to stage three: Late Lyme disease, which can

Typically, medications are used as part of managing this

disorder. There may be pain relievers, anti-seizure medications,

and antidepressants. Often supporting sleep is a big part

of treatment. Because this disorder involves the nervous system,

it’s important to keep stress under control. Making

choices throughout the day to minimize the potential for stress

is important. One example may be, when scheduling your day,

to make sure to give yourself plenty of time between appointments

or activities to not feel rushed. Taking slow, deep

breaths when feeling stressed will engage the parasympathetic

nervous system and help you feel calmer. Too much sitting

around may aggravate the condition while gentle exercise and

gentle stretching should be beneficial. I have found that each

individual needs to learn what works for their body. Often

swimming and exercise in the water feels helpful to those suffering

from fibromyalgia. You may need to avoid any kind of

pounding types of exercise that shocks the muscles and joints.

Yoga and tai chi are examples of gentle exercises that may be

more helpful than running. The general understanding here is

that leading a lifestyle that is gentle on the body may result in

an easier time for those who deal with fibromyalgia.

NEED FOR AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH

When I was in graduate school for Chinese Medicine, we

had to do a final research project. At the time, fibromyalgia

was a relatively newly defined condition and I had several

patients dealing with it. So I was curious to look at this

through the lens of Chinese Medicine and fibromyalgia

became my topic. I’ve seen many patients since then who

struggle with this condition and truly do find that a more comprehensive

approach is the most helpful. Acupuncture and

develop months to years after the tick bite occurred, and can

even develop after a time of not having any symptoms (like a

thief in the night).

This later stage comes with symptoms including ongoing

arthritis, mental impairments such as confusion, problems

with memory and concentration, mood changes, balance

problems/vertigo, and occasionally schizophrenic-like illness,

loss of sensation in fingers and toes, and skin changes.

Now all of these stages are terrible, but stay seated, because

it gets worse.

Post-Treatment Lyme Disease (PTLD) or Chronic Lyme

Disease refers to symptoms that do not settle down, even after

going through treatments for the disease. Enter your Publisher,

stage left. According to LymeDisease.org, Chronic Lyme

patients suffer from a worse quality of life than compared to

most other chronic illnesses, including Multiple Sclerosis and

Congestive Heart Failure. In a survey done by Lymedisease.

org, over 40% of patients with Chronic Lyme report that they

are unable to work.

I could be (and by all rights, should be) one of these people.

The disease has taken so much out of me, but I continue to

fight, day after day, for the people of my communities.

One day I will take it easy, one day I will heal, but until

then, I fight the good fight, and take this opportunity to hopefully

educate some of you and make a difference in your lives.

Until next time, be well!

Chinese herbs may be one part of the treatment plan.

Acupuncture affects the circulation of blood through the

muscles. It also regulates certain neurotransmitters in the brain

and spinal cord that can influence the pain experience.

Supporting healthy sleep and building energy levels is often a

focus to bring a greater sense of wellness. Massage therapy

may be helpful for some, though if the pressure is too strong

it could aggravate pain levels.

My hope is that those who suffer from fibromyalgia seek

out a wider, whole approach to treating their body. This

includes looking at what types of food and movement will be

best. You can seek out support from a naturopathic physician

for additional guidance, along with the care from the allopathic

physician who may offer helpful medications. A physical

therapist with particular experience with fibromyalgia will

understand and look for the activities that are most helpful.

I’ve found that counseling is often a part of finding wellness

with fibromyalgia, as negotiating trauma or overwhelming

stress may be of utmost importance. With certain conditions

like this one, I believe it takes a team approach with everyone

listening closely to what works best for the body.

How To Handle The Summer Camp

Questions In The Pandemic Era

Children make cherished memories at summer camp,

where many youngsters first discover passions and

hobbies they will enjoy for the rest of their lives.

Summer 2020 was a camp season unlike any other. Some

camps closed their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic,

while others downsized their offerings in an effort to keep

campers safe while still providing them with a much-needed

outlet. As the 2021 summer camp season approaches, parents

may be a little less hesitant about sending their kids to camp

than they were a year ago. The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines

has helped millions of people return to some semblance

of normalcy, and that rollout has put summer camp

back in play for families.

Choosing a summer camp is not always so easy, and it

might be especially tricky as the world slowly emerges from

the pandemic. The following are some tips for parents as

they consider if camp is a good idea this summer.

• Consider your comfort level. It’s understandable if parents

are hesitant about sending their youngsters to camp this

summer. In fact, some camps may still be closed while others

may only offer limited day camps this summer. Parents

should consider their comfort levels before enrolling kids in

camp. Vaccines have proven effective, but COVID-19 hasn’t

gone away, and some regions have yet to vaccinate teenagers.

Vaccines also have yet to be offered to children under

16. Parents can ask themselves how comfortable they are

sending kids to camp, and if they’re hesitant to do so they

can explore their alternatives.

• Ask children if they want to go to camp. Everyone is

experiencing some measure of pandemic-related burnout,

and that includes kids. Kids may be sick of wearing masks

at school all day and, even if they have loved camp in the

past, may not be looking forward to wearing masks all day

at camp this summer. Others might not be experiencing such

burnout and may see camp as a way to quell boredom at a

time when boredom has seemingly lingered over every day.

Either way, solicit kids’ input and let them know their feelings

matter regardless of which side of the fence they’re on.

• Inquire about safety protocols. When researching summer

camps, ask about the safety protocols each camp will have in

place. Will masks be mandatory for both campers and staff?

How much direct interaction will campers have with each

other? Have staff members been vaccinated? What measures

are being taken to keep kids safe? Camps should have

detailed protocols and share those protocols with parents

upon request.

• Ask about alternatives. If parents and/or children are

hesitant about attending camp in person, ask camp officials

if there will be any virtual events or programs this summer.

Some camps may be organizing activities like craft projects

online, and that can help kids overcome the boredom of being

stuck at home all summer.

Summer camps may not be fully back to normal in 2021.

However, families likely won’t have to go without access to

summer camps for the second consecutive summer.

Young Wildlife Belong in the Wild

Watching wildlife is enjoyable, especially when young

animals appear in the spring. But it is best to keep your distance.

Picking up young wildlife can do more harm than

good, according to the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department,

and it is also against the law.

When people see young animals alone, they often mistakenly

assume these animals are helpless or lost, in trouble or

needing to be rescued. Bringing young wildlife into a human

environment often results in permanent separation from their

mothers and a sad ending for the animal.

Handling wildlife could also pose a threat to the people

involved. Wild animals can transmit disease and angry wildlife

mothers can pose significant dangers.

Department scientists encourage wildlife watchers to

respect the behavior of animals in the spring and early summer,

and to resist the urge to assist wildlife in ways that may

be harmful. Here are some helpful tips:

• Deer and moose nurse their young at different times during

the day, and often leave young alone for long periods of time.

These animals are not lost. Their mother knows where they

are and will return.

• Young birds on the ground may have left their nest, but their

parents will still feed them.

• Young animals such as fox and raccoon will often follow

their mother. The mother of a wildlife youngster is usually

nearby but just out of sight to a person happening upon it.

• Animals that act sick can carry rabies, parasites or other

harmful diseases. Do not handle them. Even though they do

not show symptoms, healthy-looking raccoons, foxes, skunks,

and bats may also be carriers of the deadly rabies virus.

• Many wildlife species will not feed or care for their young

when people are close by. Obey signs that restrict access to

wildlife nesting areas, including hiking trails that may be

temporarily closed.

• Keep domestic pets indoors, leashed or fenced in. Dogs and

cats kill many baby animals each year.

• Avoid projects that remove trees, shrubs and dead snags that

contain nests during the spring and summer.

For information about rabies and wildlife conflicts, or truly

orphaned wildlife (i.e. the adult has been hit by a car) call the

Vermont Rabies Hotline at 1-800-4RABIES (1-800-472-

2437).

For the safety of all wildlife, taking a wild animal into

captivity is illegal, even one you suspect is sick, injured or has

been abandoned.

Artist, Cindy Griffith will be unveiling her new body of work at

The Drawing Board, 22 Main Street, Montpelier, VT. This

exhibit of all new work is called Leaning In, which shows the

transition her art has taken and her strong feeling of leaning in to

the change. Transitioning from primarily landscapes, Cindy has

moved to using fabric, glass and various objects as her focus with

vibrant, bold colors and strokes. The exhibit will be at The

Drawing Board for the month of June 2021. In addition,

welcomes Art Walk participants.

Scout is a friendly, happy-to-meet-everyone kind of

of life. Scout doesn't understand leashes yet, but he's

learning. He's sort of like having a butterfly on a

string at the moment, but he's learning that good

things happen when he sticks close and checks in.

He has done well with kids and dogs, but cannot live

with cats. His southern foster reports he loves a soft

couch, but also loves time in the yard, especially if he

has a place he can dig.

Adding Flowers to Your Vegetable Garden

By Bonnie Kirn Donahue

Extension Master Gardener, University of Vermont

This season, consider incorporating flowers into your vegetable

garden.

Flowers can transform vegetable gardens from places of

production to places of pleasure. While vegetables have a

lovely variety of textures and shades of green, flowers add

pops of color, contrast and vibrancy. Not only is this diversity

of plant types appealing to humans, but it makes your garden

more appealing to insects, some of which can help protect

your gardens.

Annual flowers, including yellow marigolds (Tagetes patula

‘Little Hero Yellow’), sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritime)

and dill (Anethum graveolens), invite beneficial insects that

act as predators to the harmful insects in your garden. Native

perennial flowers, such as purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea),

attract native pollinators and support biodiversity.

Keep in mind when planting perennials in your vegetable

garden, you won’t be able to rototill these areas in the spring.

One way around this is to consider no-till gardening methods

that will allow you to keep perennials in the garden from year

to year.

Flowering herbs and edible flowers are another great way

to introduce color and culinary uses. Edible flowers can add

fantastic color to your garden and your plate.

Some plants to consider are anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum),

bachelor’s buttons (Centaurea cyanus), chamomile

(Chamaemelum nobile or Matricaria chamomilla), chives

(Allium schoenoprasum), dill (Anethum graveolens), lavender

(Lavandula angustifolia or L. officinalis), nasturtiums

(Tropaeloum majus) and pansies (Viola spp.).

When selecting edible flowers, double check the common

and Latin names to make sure these are safe to eat. This

Extension resource gives some great pointers: https://extension.umn.edu/flowers/edible-eflowers.

In addition to adding color and texture, flowers interplanted with vegetables

in gardens help attract pollinators. (photo: Bonnie Kirn Donahue)

Flowers also can add drama to your vegetable garden.

Sunflowers (Helianthus) tower over vegetable gardens and

gardeners, reminding us of our relative places in nature. Dill

quickly grows into thin forest-like groves that attract insects,

which seem to dance from flower to flower. Amaranth

(Amaranthus), an ancient grain of the Americas, grows tall

and has vibrant colorful tufts of seedheads.

Planting a row of annual

flowers solely for cutting can

add color to your garden and

your table. Zinnias, for example,

are annual powerhouses,

available in a variety of colors

and sizes. They will happily

rebloom over and over,

and the flowers last a long

time after cutting.

There are a few things to

keep in mind when adding

flowers to your vegetable

beds. First, think about the

sun/shade requirements of the

flowers you are planting.

Plant flowers in areas that

will fit these preferences.

Next, if you’re like me and

prone to overplanting your

gardens in the spring, consider

the mature height and

width of the flowers and vegetables

you plan to commingle.

Interplanting marigolds

and sweet alyssum with peppers

in a small space will result in peppers that tower over and

shade these shorter plants and will leave you with few flowers

to enjoy or even see.

Finally, for annual flowers such as sweet alyssum and marigolds,

be sure to deadhead flowers throughout the summer to

encourage more blooms.

We could all use more color in our lives, so why not

experiment with one of the many options for adding flowers

to your vegetable garden this year?

NOW HERE’S A TIP

By JoAnn Derson

* C.S.R. in Florida sends this reminder:

Pull out the plugs on toasters, microwaves,

etc. Appliances still draw a bit of

power when not in use but plugged in.

* Fasten buttons, zippers and other closures before laundering

a garment. This is especially important for any item that

includes a hook-and-loop closure. The hooks will catch on

other garments, and best case will be filled with lint. Worst

case: They can tear at the threads of other items of clothing.

* If you have a bunch of your family’s historical documents,

make sure you scan them and preserve them for future generations.

It’s always nice to forward copies to relatives -- you

never know when someone will get involved in genealogy

and really want to see those birth records, baptism certificates

and baby photos.

* You can sharpen knitting needles with a pencil sharpener.

You also can use an emery board. Sharp needles work best!

* “If you have two pairs of similar slacks -- one navy and one

black -- you can put a safety pin through the tag on one of

them so you can tell them apart. I have a pin in the navy

slacks. They really do look similar until you’re out in the

light.” -- T.L. in Virginia

What to look for when test driving preowned vehicles

Preowned vehicles have become hot commodities

in recent years, reflecting a change

in what drivers are looking for when it’s time

to get a new ride.

According to the market and consumer data

experts at Statista, preowned vehicle sales

increased every year between 2014 and 2019

and more than doubled the number of new

cars sold each year during that period. For example,

in 2019 United States car buyers purchased

40.8 million preowned vehicles and

right around 17 million new vehicles.

There are many reasons why more car buyers

are increasingly looking to the preowned

vehicle market when replacing their existing

vehicles. Certified preowned vehicles have

increased consumer confidence in used cars

and trucks and extended warranties have

helped ease concerns buyers may have about

such vehicles.

As reliable as preowned vehicles can be,

prospective buyers must remain diligent when

considering a used car and truck. Potential

mechanical issues can be discussed with a

mechanic of buyers’ choosing, but it’s up to

drivers to gauge other factors that can affect

how enjoyable it may or may not be to drive

a given vehicle. Test drives remain a great

way to get a feel for preowned vehicles and

prospective buyers can consider various factors

to determine if a given car or truck is for

them.

• Comfort: Comfort is a big consideration

when purchasing new vehicles, and there’s no

reason to downplay the importance of comfort

when shopping for preowned vehicles.

Consider the available headroom and legroom

when test driving a vehicle, but also take note

of comfort-based accessories that the vehicle

may or may not have. For example, if you’ve

grown accustomed to heated seats on your

existing vehicle, then a preowned vehicle

without such seats, or one without functioning

heated seats, will likely bother you in the

years to come.

• Visibility: Sight lines vary from vehicle to

vehicle, so make sure your test drive is long

enough to give you an accurate idea of a vehicle’s

visibility. Blind spots may not differ

much in new versus older models or even in

vehicles made by the same manufacturer, but

they can differ considerably between manufacturers

(i.e., Toyota versus Nissan). Get a

feel for blind spots during the test drive to determine

if the you’ll be comfortable driving a

given vehicle.

• Connectivity: Modern vehicles are designed

to connect with our devices, and drivers

have quickly grown to prioritize connectivity.

Compatibility with devices can make

it easier to use GPS and stream music while

driving, so don’t hesitate to connect your

phone when test driving a vehicle. If the car

and phone are incompatible, that can affect

how much you enjoy driving the car.

Preowned vehicles are incredibly popular.

Buyers considering used cars or trucks can

look for certain things during a test drive to

determine if a given vehicle is the right fit for

them.
