MICK Still Missing/Lost

My 3 year old, long haired, German Shepherd has been lost for over 3 months. He is wearing a red collar with no tags, He is a good dog, but a shy, one-man dog. That is why its been hard to catch him. I have been limited in trying to catch him because my car brakes gave out and I have no money to x it. So I need help in catching him. Mick, has been seen in various locations around the area. Last report was around Shady Rill/Rumney school area over a month ago. He could be anywhere by now. Its breaking my heart because he is one reason I live for. Now the weather is getting colder and its getting into hunting season. Please help to bring him home safely. Food would probably be the way to entice him. If you cant catch him, please call the authorities, the humane society or myself, Tim. You can reach me at 802-498-3041.

Since Hurricane Irene, the idea of community resilience has all but become a household word in Vermont but resilience requires more than just preparing for a hostile climate. Its an issue of challenged governmental and economic prospects. In the face of fiscal cliffs, massive debts and ever changing challenges to business and local government funding, how can we weather the storms and keep the cities, towns and local businesses we know and love intact? For Vermont to weather the coming storms of social and financial turbulence, its important to understand how we create a resilient economy as well. To help address this big issue, Global Community Initiatives and the Donella Meadows Institute have partnered with the Public Banking Institute to host a conference that explores how we can create a bright economic future. Vermonts New Economy will be offered in the chapel at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier on Friday, December 7th, 2012, starting at 9am. This event will provide concerned Vermonters an opportunity to learn about and debate a range of innovative prospects. Should Vermont have a state bank which would allow us to finance local developments without the debt to financial center banks? Could there be new currency and ownership solutions for local businesses and citizens? What will be the impact of climate change and peak oil on our oil dependent future? How can understanding a wider value set create new ways of measuring our well being and prepare for a steady state economy? Helping to kick off the event and focus on the issue of a possible state bank, the keynote speaker will be Ellen Brown, author of the acclaimed Web of Debt and founder of the Public Banking Institute. Vermont can create a model of local, regional, and state economies which will help foster human and environmental well-being, high quality enterprise, sustainable communities, and

effective governance. It is already doing so with the creation of local and business to business currencies. The GPI indicators passed by the legislature last session will help offer a new view on our real wellbeing. This conference is a big step towards convening a coalition to identify critical policy and programmatic opportunities for the state. The organizers have developed a guide for community leaders to use for sustainable economic planning and implementation, which is available online at www.global-laser. org. The conference will include sessions that discuss how to: Mobilize investment in Vermonts sustainable business sectors using all the tools available, such as creating new capital sources and investment opportunities like crowd funding. Introduce projects, programs, and means of exchange that build natural, physical, human, social, financial, and institutional capital formation such as Vermont Freedom and Unity bonds, business to business barter networks, time banks and food currencies. Support public banking initiatives that provide the state and the public with the benefits of fractional reserve banking and fill unmet and difficult capital investment and financing needs in the state. Examine how the value sets we use to measure economic progress influence the economy. The Genuine Progress Indicator and Gross National Happiness will be explored as alternatives. Explore alternative ownership models like cooperatives and employee-owned enterprises to help create new jobs in the state. The event is open to the public, and registration is $25. Register by Wednesday at www. global-community.org/neweconomy and your lunch is included. Registration is also available at the door beginning at 8am the morning of the conference.

Pictured left to right are the Demers family, Luke, Hannah, Sue and Paul, with one of the children from the Redeemers Child orphanage in Croixdes-Bouquets, Haiti. In the background is the cement mixer they donated to the orphanage.

The Demers family of Concord, owners of the P&S Furniture stores in Barre and Concord, Vermont and Littleton, New Hampshire, recently returned from a mission trip to Haiti with the Love in Motion program. Sue and Paul Demers, and their children Luke and Hannah, spent 10 days helping with construction projects at the Redeemers Child orphanage and school located in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. The family have been sponsoring children in Haiti for years, and had donated money for a cement mixer to help the orphanage grow. While the Demers were pleased to see their gift in action and to lend their hands to the construction project, they all agreed that the best part of the trip was spending time with the children at the orphanage. As 13-year-old Hannah said, Even though the Haitian people have almost nothing, they are happy. It taught me that we dont need to have all the material things that we have to be happy. For more information about the Love in Motion program, visit www.monadnockbible.org/haiti.

Marshfield resident Susan Abbott received her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and has worked as a professional artist since that time. Her show in the Central Vermont Medical Center lobby gallery represents work done in Paris and in Provence. Susans still life and landscape paintings are inspired by a sense of place, whether the back roads of New England, quays of Paris, or the lavender fields of Provence. Travels for both painting inspiration and teaching have taken her, accompanied by her sketchbook and French easel, all over the world. Susan Abbotts paintings are visually rich, completely changing the atmosphere of CVMCs lobby, stated Judy Tartaglia, President and CEO. I think many people walking through our lobby will be captivated by these paintings. Abbott returns to the same hamlet in the Luberon Mountains of southern France every summer to teach and paint. For her, Provence is a special place, a delight to all the senses. She loves the spontaneity and challenge of trying to capture the light and color of Provence en plein air (in the open air). Abbott visits Paris almost as frequently, both to teach sketchbook and art history workshops, and to explore the streets and museums of her favorite city. She has exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Contemporary Art Center of Virginia, Museum of Technology, Hood College, and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Her painting was featured in the

CVMC Gallery Hangs Paris/Provence Paintings by Susan Abbott

show Objects of Personal Significance, which toured museums around the United States. She has had numerous one person shows of her largescale watercolor still life paintings and oil landscapes. She has been a recipient of a Maryland Art Council Individual Artist Award and a Vermont Arts Council Creation Grant. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Abbott has received numerous private and public painting commissions, including the Art of Action project. Work created for that project was inspired by the social, cultural and political issues affecting the future of Vermont. Susan was one of 10 artists commissioned from 300 applicants. The exhibit traveled throughout Vermont. The art critic for The Washington Post commented about Susan Abbotts painting, There simply arent many watercolorists in America who can match her level of expertise. What makes her painting so interesting, however, is the peculiar tension between the dazzling display of skill and the underlying idea. In addition to her career as an exhibiting painter, Ms. Abbott conducts art workshops in France, Italy, Spain, India, and sites in the United States. Susans painting is represented in Vermont by the West Branch Gallery in Stowe and Gallery North Star in Grafton. To learn more about Susan and see additional work visit her web site www. susanabbott.com. Paris/Provence will hang in the CVMC gallery through January 18, 2013.

U.S. Forest Service officials in Vermont are encouraging the public to purchase Christmas tree permits should they be interested in a fivedollar tree for the holidays. In recent years the Green Mountain National Forest (GMNF) program has continued to grow in popularity with 431 permits sold last calendar year. Christmas trees may be cut on the Green Mountain National Forest, subject to the following conditions: A Christmas Tree Removal permit must be purchased ($5.00) at one of the Forest Service offices located in Rutland, Middlebury, Manchester Center, or Rochester, Vermont. The permit must be attached to the tree before transporting it from the site where it was cut. The permit holder is responsible for knowing that the tree comes from Forest Service land. Maps are available when you purchase your permit. Trees over 20 feet tall are not designated for cutting by the Christmas tree permit.

Christmas Trees Available on the Green Mountain National Forest

The height of the tree stump left after a tree has been cut should be six inches or less above the soil. Christmas trees shall not be cut in active timber sales, wilderness areas, campgrounds, picnic areas, or within 25 feet of any Forest Service, town, or state maintained road. Only one Christmas tree permit will be issued per household per year. Permits are not refundable. Trees obtained under the Christmas tree permit may not be resold.

This years December concert by the Mad River Chorale, An Evergreen Holiday ~ Traditional Songs of the Season, will be a voyage back to the groups roots as they sing familiar holiday songs in two local venues. There will be two performances on December 9, the first at 4pm in the Warren United Church and the second at 7:30pm in the Waitsfield United Church. The program, in keeping with the celebration of the Twentieth Anniversary Year, was decided by vote of the singers, who chose their favorites from the Chorales 300-song repertoire. Audience members young and old will find their own favorites on the list which includes a great variety such as singalong carols, the Hallelujah Chorus from Handels Messiah, Twas the Night Before Christmas, Go Tell It on the Mountain and many other familiar pieces. This is a wonderful way to start the holiday season, said MRC President Tony Egan. The churches will be decorated, the music will be appealing to families, and there will be lots of chances for everyone to sing. We love going back to the old-fashioned holiday celebration. In the spirit of the season, non-perishable items will be collected for the Mad River Valley Food Shelf for $1 ticket discount. For advance tickets call 496-4781 and leave a message for a call-back.

Parents have been bringing up lots of questions about what to do when their child vomits. Well let me see if I can toss some information out which is better than tossing ones cookies on this topic! Vomiting is a way for the body to get rid of something that it doesnt like whether it is an invader like a germ, an irritant like a food that has spoiled, or even pressure that builds up somewhere in the body. It is a complex process that is coordinated by a vomiting center located in the brain, which responds to signals from the body saying it needs to evacuate the stomach contents and get rid of the insult on the body. This evacuation occurs by sending half-digested food mixed with stomach mucus, saliva, stomach acids and other chemicals up the food pipe and out the mouth. When do we worry about vomiting? Seek medical attention immediately if any of the following describe your childs vomit-

ing: Lasts longer than 24 hours Seems to be projectile or forceful, especially in infants Appears to be red, bright green, yellow-green or dark like coffee grounds in color Is accompanied by severe belly pain, a severe headache, fever, or dehydration If the vomiting occurs once or twice, then the name of the game is to stay calm so as not to further frighten your child, and make sure your child remains hydrated. Offering steady small amounts of clear liquids or oral hydration solutions is the way to go. Your childs doctor can tell you how much to give your child each hour based on the age and weight of your child. Giving solids or large amounts of liquid may simply make the vomiting worse in the first 24 hours. If your child has not vomited for at least 8 hours, then it is probably okay to introduce mild, bland foods back into their diet such as crackers, toast, broth, rice, and mashed potatoes. It would be rare for your childs doctor to recommend medications to prevent mild vomiting due to a stomach virus or indigestion since the sooner the body rids itself of whatever is bothering it, the better off your child will feel, and delaying this from happening may only make matters worse. Hopefully tips like this will stay down with you and your child when it comes to knowing what to do and when to worry about your childs vomiting.

Take the 50/50 Challenge

Vermonts centers provide critical economic and community contributions to the Green Mountain States identity both for the people who live here and for the nearly 14 million that visit here annually, DEHCD Commissioner Noelle MacKay said. Downtowns face the challenge of remaining vital community and consumer hubs, in the face of malls and the internet. Small, but committed groups of people have formed local downtown organizations such as Montpelier Alive, The Barre Partnership, The Bristol Downtown Community Partnership, and Building a Better Brattleboro, just to name a few. The Vermont Downtown program was established in 1998 by the Downtown Act. More than 500 volunteers work to produce

Thank You to the Residents & Taxpayers of Berlin

U.S. Rep. Peter Welch

U.S. Sen. Bernard Sanders

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy

Editor: As some of you may have heard, I have resigned my position as Berlin Treasurer and Tax Collector, effective November 26th. I want to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the Town of Berlin for the outstanding support which I have been afforded for the past eight plus years. I was first elected to the office of Treasurer and Tax Collector in March of 2004, re-elected three more times, and appointed by the Selectboard in March 2012, in accordance with the recent Charter change. The Selectboard felt strongly that there be consistent daily working hours for the position, and I agree. Unfortunately as time went by, I realized that this schedule would be difficult for me to maintain because of some personal commitments and my responsibilities as your Legislator. With the recent legislative redistricting, my district has more than doubled. I will greatly miss meeting and seeing all of you in my capacity as Treasurer, but will continue to be in touch with you in my legislative role. It was a bittersweet

decision but I believe it was the right one for me and for Town at this point. I will now be able to focus my time on my family, my home and my new Legislative district, which includes Northfield. I feel proud of the level of service I was able to provide as Treasurer. I brought many positive changes to the job to include financial transparency and a cooperative working relationship between my office and Selectboard members. Going forward I will certainly do everything I can to help the Town and the new Treasurer to be successful as requested. It was truly a pleasure and honor to serve as your Treasurer for the past eight plus years. Thank you. Patti J. Lewis Berlin

Thank You to Barre Area Community

Editor: I would like to thank the members of the Barre Kiwanis Club, Michael Dennis the Store Manager of the Barre-Montpelier Price Chopper and his staff, and the community members who donated turkeys and/or money for our first Thanksgiving Turkey Drive. We were able to distribute 120 turkeys and many boxes of other food items to the food shelves at Hedding United Methodist Church, St. Monicas Catholic Church, Websterville Baptist Church, Central Vermont Community Action, and the Presbyterian Church.

n 1831, the legislature asked for proposals for a new Statehouse. In the running were Montpelier, Burlington, Woodstock, Rutland, Middlebury, and Randolph. In 1832, the legislature chose Montpelier, provided that Montpelier would raise $15,000. Montpelier raised $18,000, and with the extra money, bought five additional acres of land in the capitol area. The controversy over the location of the capitol was sparked by a plan exhibited by an architect, Ammi Young. His earlier work included a Congregational church in Lebanon and two buildings at Dartmouth College. The building committee for the Statehouse invited Young to tour New England statehouses. Included in that tour were statehouses in Boston, Concord and Hartford. After the tour, Young selected Barre granite for the exterior walls and copper for the dome and roof. The dominant theme of the new capitol was a Greek building with a Roman dome. Youngs work as an architect of the Statehouse gave him a regional and later national recognition. He received honorary degrees from Dartmouth College and the University of Vermont. In 1837, he worked on the Custom House in Boston. In 1852, he went to Washington, D.C., where he became responsible for all federal buildings as the U.S. Treasurys first supervising architect. Youngs work on the Vermont Statehouse was recognized in October of 1838 by a resolution. The resolve clause stated that the thanks of this legislature be presented to Ammi B. Young as a testimonial of their approbation of the taste, ability, fidelity and perseverance which he has manifested in the design and execution of the new capitol of this state; which will abide as a lasting monument of the talents and fine taste of Mr. Young as an architect. Granite blocks for the building came from Cobble Hill Quarries in Barre. The quarry owner was paid $100 a year over a four-year period for furnishing the stone. The stone was transported by four

horses and a yoke of oxen. Wagons were loaded with heavy stones by means of skids and rollers. They were driven to Montpelier, unloaded and returned home. The 25-mile round trip took 18 hours, beginning in Barre at 4 a.m. and returning at 10 p.m. The new Statehouse consisted of a central building 100 feet deep with two wings, 50 feet deep, the length of the entire building being 156 feet. The copper dome was 100 feet tall. In front of the building was a portico, modeled, it was said, after the temple of Theseus and ornamented with six fluted Doric pillars, each six feet in diameter. The first floor was used for state offices such as the Secretary of State and Treasury and committee rooms. The second floor consisted of the House and Senate chambers and the governors office. The building was first used in 1836, the same year the Senate was created in place of a governor and council. Historian Zadock Thompson described the new Statehouse this way, The entrance to the grounds, and principle approach to the State House from the street, is noble and commanding; the gateways, the fence, the grounds, and all their details are in keeping with the building and assist in giving to it that consideration that it should have, as the capitol of a flourishing, independent state. The building is very neat and simple in its design, a pure architectural character is preserved throughout; this, combined with the convenience of interior arrangement, and the permanency of is construction, renders it a structure of more merit than any other in New England. Next week: Fire leads to construction of the third Statehouse Senator Bill Doyle serves on the Senate Education Committee and Senate Economic Affairs Committee, and is the Senate Minority Leader.

10 Ways To Keep Your Brain Full Size And Full Strength


hat do your favorite wool sweater, your retirement savings account and your brain have in common? Theyre all better off if they dont shrink! But the brains of millions of Americans and Canadians with slightly elevated blood sugar levels are at risk for just that! One study making headlines found that even a little extra blood glucose shrivels gray matter. Seems the hippocampus (memories) and amygdala (thinking) areas of the brain grew smaller in women and men whose blood sugar was in the prediabetes range, about 110 mg/dL on a fasting blood sugar test. (And if you progress from prediabetes to diabetes, as most people eventually do, youll accelerate shrinkage even more!) But theres a lot you can do to reverse prediabetes and keep your brain cells healthy and your neurons firing. 1. Break out your walking shoes. Exercise stimulates the growth of new neurons and new neuron connections by boosting levels of a protein called BDNF. Even a few 30-minute walks a week protect against cognitive decline, and theyre more effective than brain games or spending time with your BFFs. We recommend that you aim for 10,000 steps a day -- thatll definitely give prediabetes the heave-ho. 2. Break out your sweats and heart-rate monitor. More-vigorous physical activity (especially using leg and core muscles) increases neural connections and the size of your brains memory-processing hippocampus. Get your heart rate up to 85 percent of your age-adjusted maximum for 20 minutes, three times a week for top benefits. (A womans max age-adjusted heart rate is 226 minus her age; and mans is 220 minus his age.) 3. De-stress daily. Chronic worry and anxiety switch on a gene that blocks the creation of new nerve connections. Meditation and exercise are great de-stressers. 4. Get Bs, C, D, E -- and omega-3s. Loading up on these nutrients found in produce, whole grains, fortified breakfast cereal, low-fat milk and omega-3-rich fish like salmon and trout reduces your risk for brain shrinkage substantially. People who didnt get enough omega-3 had 37 percent more brain loss, in one eyeopening report. You can also take 900 milligrams of omega-3 DHA daily and half a multivitamin twice a day. 5. Skip trans fats. Trans fats reduce brain size. Check all food labels. If you see partially hydrogenated fats, especially in baked goods and ready-to-eat frozen and canned meals, put the package back on the shelf. 6. Lower high blood pressure. Take your blood pressure readings

year. 9. Consider Supplements That Decrease Insulin Resistance. Cinnamon (2 teaspoons daily), turmeric (17 milligrams as a spice in food), purified omega-7s (210 milligrams daily) and coffee (more than two cups a day if your doc says its OK for you) all decrease insulin resistance and may improve long-term brain function. 10. Get Some Sleep. Insomnia is another brain drain. Nix afternoon caffeine, de-stress before turning in, make sure your room is cool and dark. In the morning, snap up the shades and get some early light. Missing out on sun exposure also can downsize your gray cells. If you can bring down your even-just-a-little-bit-higher-thannormal blood sugar, youll make your RealAge much younger, extend your warranty and keep your brain sharper by six months for every year that you for avoid Weekly postpone or totally12-5 type 2 diabetes.

seriously. Anything higher than 117/76 can damage blood vessels that supply brain cells with oxygen and fuel. 7. Stop smoking; avoid secondhand smoke; get your flu shot. Puffing on tobacco chokes the blood supply to your brain. (Visit www. sharecare.com for great tips and support for kicking butts.) Secondhand smoke and not getting your flu shots are both associated with overall inflammation. Avoiding inflammation in your brain makes you much smarter. 8. Find Relief For Chronic Pain. Inflammation associated with ongoing back pain could thin your gray matter by a whopping 11 percent!

A recent phone survey of more than 400 Vermonters conducted by ICF Macro for the Vermont Department of Health shows that there is strong support for limiting or banning smoking in outdoor public places: 95% would ban (80%) or limit (15%) smoking at building entryways. 81% support a ban on smoking in motor vehicles when children are present. 69% said they would be likely to choose housing with smokefree policies over housing without such policies. (52% said they would be extremely likely, and 17% said they would be likely). 51% favor limiting smoking at parks and beaches, and 29% favor a ban on smoking at parks and beaches. 51% support a ban on smoking at outdoor marketplaces, while 29% prefer some limitations on smoking at outdoor markets. The survey was conducted in April 2012. The dangers of secondhand smoke are well understood and smoke-free policies are now widely accepted. This is good news for the health of Vermonters, said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD. We also know most smokers want to quit and The Vermont Quit Network can help. Quitting smoking has almost immediate health benefits. Vermonters who want support to quit can call or visit The Vermont Quit Network at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or vtquitnetwork.org.

Vermont has been awarded a three-year $3.5 million federal grant to reduce substance abuse in six areas of the state that have high rates of underage drinking or prescription drug misuse among youth and young adults. A total of $1.18 million per year was awarded to the Health Department by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). While Vermont is generally considered one of the healthiest states, we have the highest rate of underage drinking in the nation (for young adults), according to SAMHSA. Prescription drug abuse is also a growing concern as treatment demand for opiates has increased. Six of the Health Departments 12 district offices (Brattleboro, Morrisville, White River Junction, Burlington, Barre and Rutland) will guide these Partnership for Success regional prevention projects. Community coalitions receiving SAMHSA grant funds have reduced binge drinking in comparison to communities that did not receive funding, said Health Department Deputy Commissioner Barbara Cimaglio. This grant

enables us to continue to build on that success. The Brattleboro Area Prevention 1-2 for Coalition is an example of a Health Department grant recipient that has focused onSeasonal Affective underage drinking in the past several years. A personalized online alcohol assessment and intervention tool that educates students about high-risk drinking called eCHECKUP TO GO (www.echeckuptogo.com) will be used by Brattleboro Union High School as part of a comprehensive approach to address underage drinking. As students complete the assessment, they can receive feedback about their own individual drinking patterns, specific health and personal consequences, unique personal and family risk factors and get access to school and local community resources as they need it, said Beth Shrader, director of Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition. With todays media savvy youth culture, an online tool that provides customized support within the school environment is an important component in addressing underage drinking. For more information about alcohol and drug abuse programs go to www.healthvermont.gov/ adap/adap.aspx.

A recent study offers more proof that cranberry juice prevents urinary tract infections (UTIs). Researchers found that the juice alters the thermodynamic properties of bacteria in the urinary tract to form an energy barrier that prevents the bacteria fro adhering to cells in the urinary tract. The juice targets the bacteria that causes UTIs but has no effect on other bacteria that are part of the natural flora in the body. For those concerned about the calories in the juice, the effects of the regular cranberry juice cocktail and sugar-free cranberry juice were identical. Also this antibacterial benefit is temporary so one must drink the juice regularly.

By Tom Herzig Vermont Salumi, the artisanal sausage and cured meat producer located on Cate Farm Road in Plainfield, has expanded its operation to offer custom cutting and meat processing including ham brining and bacon curing and smoking. The custom cutting venture is a return to the tradition of local butchers who rather than specialize, perform the entire harvest from slaughter to wrapped, finished product. Preferably, Vermont Salumis role starts with delivered carcasses, but slaughter is a possible option. Jaclyn Burskey, a Michigan native who studied sustainability and environmental science at Prescott College in Arizona and interned with Greenfield Highland Beef in Plainfield and Greensboro, handles the bulk of the custom cutting. There is a seasonal aspect to the business with an increase in demand for services in the fall, Burskey said. Theres a push and pull between producers and slaughterhouses about capacity. Our focus is pigs only. We occasionally do a few lambs and would gladly process venison, but most of the cutting is for people who are raising pigs, often for the first time. We prefer delivered carcass halves or quarters, but can consider slaughter, depending on the situation. My goal, as a person who values sustainability and eats meat, is to understand every aspect of producing and consuming it, Burskey said. I strive to be rounded in all areas. Ive worked on a dairy farm and a pig farm and apprenticed on a kill floor. Humane slaughter is important to me. The transition from living animal to food supply is one of the most sacred, other than birth itself. Vermont Salumi Custom Cutting operates with a custom exempt license meaning that meat processed there is for consumption by the household (including friends, family and employees) that raised the animal and is not to be sold. Burskeys customers receive a yield sheet to compare finished product with the hanging weight. We weigh out the particular cuts, Burskey said. Youre trying to end up somewhere around 85 percent of the hanging weight. If people want head cheese or gods butter (bone marrow), that ups the yield. Ground pork and chops are favorites. We brine and smoke hams and we dry cure and smoke bacon. Having experience raising animals gives me the ability to ascertain how the quality of the meat is affected by what the animal has been fed, Burskey said. Customers can ask me questions about feed. Pigs need a balanced, diverse diet. Producers need to look at the numbers the cost of grain, the way you feed the pigs etc. We get a ton of small pigs brought in because people didnt realize the expense of continuing to feed them. Burskeys tool of the trade include saws, cleavers, a scimitar (steak knife with a wide, curved blade), boning knives, polishing steels, a grinding wheel and a meat grinder. Asked if she felt wielding sharp-edged tools constituted dangerous work, Burskey said, actually lifting large pieces with sharp

bone edges that you dont notice is when youre more likely to get nicked. Greenfield Highland Beef raises Highland Cattle for breeding stock and show and to sell grass fed and finished Highland beef. Humane treatment and respect for our animals is paramount, Greenlands Janet Steward said. Jaclyn did much of the animal care on her own. We knew our animals were in good hands when Jaclyn was caring for them. She is extremely artistic and appreciative of beauty. She helped condition our animals for showing and selling, building wonderful relationships with the calves and preparing them to be enjoyed for many years by future owners. Burskey will conduct a Tools of Butchering workshop ($20) introducing tools from basic knives to cleavers and demonstrating the use of steels and stones at Cork Wine Bar and Market, 1 Stowe Street in Waterbury, Sunday, December 9. For more information contact Cork at 882-8227 or Vermont Salumi at 454-8360. Salumi is an umbrella term for Italian style cured meat products, predominantly pork, including sausage, capicola, salami and prosciutto. Vermont Salumis retail store at 142 Cate Farm Rd, Plainfield, is open from Mon-Sat 12-6pm. Vermont Salumi regularly attends the Capital City Farmers Market. The Market has begun its indoor season at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, first and third Saturdays from 10am 2pm.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Start preparing now to make sure you get the credit youre due for all that effort you put in to get that project off the ground. A new challenge emerges after the 15th. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre still charging full steam ahead on the job -- and thats fine. But take time to share the joy of preparing for the upcoming holidays with folks you love. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A former detractor resists joining your ranks just yet. Give him or her time to learn more about what youre doing. Meanwhile, devote more time to friends and family. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be careful not to be goaded into a tiff by someone who might be looking for a fight. Remain cool as you make your exit. Be assured that others will rally to your support. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Kudos on getting the welldeserved Lions share of the rewards for a job well-done. Now you can take a breather from your workaday duties and spend time with your family. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You enjoy a quick spurt of renewed energy just in time to meet that upcoming deadline. A potentially romantic situation looms. How it develops will be up to you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch out for dis-

tractions that could cause delays and leave you running twice as fast to finish your work by the 15th. Then go ahead and have fun. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might prefer to work on current tasks on your own. But be open to a potentially useful suggestion from someone who admires you and wants to help. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Avoid rushing full gallop into that volunteer project without knowing whats expected of you. Take things a step at a time as you begin to find your way. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: You should begin to feel more comfortable expressing your emotions. This will go a long way in helping you with that personal situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old friend gives confusing signals. Best advice: Dont assume that things will necessarily work themselves out. Ask questions and demand straight answers. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new relationship needs time to develop. Be careful not to let your emotions flood your natural sense of caution. Meanwhile, check out that new job offer. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of right and wrong sometimes causes you to come into conflict with others. But you invariably come out ahead.

Q: I recently found a fountain pen at a garage sale. I purchased it for a dollar, but think it could be worth much more. It is a Sheaffer Lifetime Balance, black with what appears to be flakes in its design. I was told that it was originally a graduation present. -- Steve, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: Your pen was issued in about 1934 and in excellentto-good condition should be worth in the $250 to $350 range. *** Q: I have a small collection of Louis LAmour books, some authorized editions and others published in paperback for the first time. Are they worth anything? -- Bonnie, Granite City, Ill. A: Louis LAmour was born in North Dakota in 1908. When he died 80 years later in Los Angeles, 89 of his books were still in print. To find out the value of your books, you should contact some of the excellent used- and rare-book dealers in St. Louis. If you have access to a computer, go to www.abe.com, and type in the titles for current values. Pay close attention to editions and whether the book is autographed by the author. *** Q: I recently purchased an original poster from The Fleets In starring Clara Bow. It is in excellent condition and

Fountain Pen

still retains its original bright colors. Any idea of how much this might be worth? -- Steve, Brighton, Colo. A: This was a film released in 1928. A one sheet from this movie sold for $3,500 about 10 years ago at auction. Despite our sluggish economy, movie memorabilia has continued to grow in popularity and values are still boxoffice gold with collectors. For a second opinion, contact Conways Vintage Treasures, P.O. Box 40962, Providence, RI 02940. *** Q: We purchased an Atari Super Pong system when it was introduced a number of years ago. It is still in its original box and has four games, instructions and an AC adapter. The model is NO-C140. How much do you think it is worth? -- Shirley, Sun City West, Ariz. A: I checked several used electronic shops and monitored the action on eBay, and think your Atari setup would sell in the $50 to $75 range.

Q: Your reply to the homeowner with storm damage to his roof a couple weeks ago was good, but I have a much smaller problem. Cleaning leaves out of my gutters this weekend, I saw leaks underneath the gutters. Leaves also piled up at bends and drains and were hard to clean out. Any suggestions on how to fix the leaks and prevent buildup? -- Rick in Pittsburgh A: Small holes that are less than a half inch in diameter should be patched as quickly as possible so that they dont get bigger. Its important to do it correctly so that the patch material doesnt sit too high and cause a new rough patch for debris to jam up on. A safety note: Work from a lad-

Minor Gutter Repairs

der, rather than from the roof, when fixing gutters, and always have a helper to steady the ladder and hand up tools as needed. If you have metal gutters, buy a small tube of roofing cement and more than enough metal repair patches that are the same type of metal as your gutters. For example, if your gutters are aluminum, buy aluminum patches; if theyre steel, buy steel. For fiberglass gutters, use fiberglass patching material and gutter repair cement or caulk. Using two different metals could cause corrosion between them. Scrub the area around the spot to be patched with a wire brush. Any rust around the leak should be cut away with metal or aviation snips. Glue the metal patch in place by dabbing roofing cement around the bottom and pressing firmly over the leaky area, then coat the edges of the patch with cement and smooth so the cement feathers out into the gutter area. If leaks are occurring around the joints, check to make sure the gutter isnt loose or uneven at the joint. If it is youll probably need to adjust the nearest hanger(s) or, if these components are damaged or rusted, replace them. Once the gutters

on each side are secure, then pipe roofing cement along the joint and smooth down. To prevent buildup of leaves and debris in the gutters, consider investing in gutter screens. These are placed over the top of the gutter runs and discourage larger debris from getting in. Gutter guards should be installed along the entire run. Prices vary depending on how much you need and the type or brand you need to buy, and of course, whether you install them yourself or hire a contractor to do it. HOME TIP: Gutters should be cleaned and inspected twice a year to make sure theyre free of debris and to locate any damage or deterioration.

Use silicone caulk to make non-skid beads on the bottom of your pets dishes. They will stay in one place instead of getting scooted all around the kitchen. Need a quick ironing job but dont have time to iron? Spray a clean kitchen towel with a mixture of water and a little fabric softener until damp. Pop it in the dryer with the item thats wrinkled. It shouldnt take more than 10 minutes to get all the wrinkles out, and it will smell great to boot! While were on ironing tips, heres a great one from T.C. in Alabama: If you have mineral deposits on your iron, use a toothbrush and toothpaste (mild abrasive) to polish them off your irons face. Rinse with water, and next time, use distilled water for steaming. When driving a nail into a plaster wall, first put down a piece of tape at the spot where youll insert the nail. Tap the nail in right through the tape, then pull away the tape to discard. It often will keep the surrounding plaster from crumbling at the site of the nail. -W.L. in Oregon When your cabinet door magnet locks are too strong, try putting a piece of tape over the magnet. It decreases the strength of the magnet. If you paint your radiators, make sure that the paint you use is heat-resistant. To get the best finish, paint while the radiator is warm.

With the holiday season in full swing, youre probably busy with a dozen things at once, preparing for visitors and shopping for gifts. Dont forget to schedule in some me time and relax with your pet and a few good books, like these:

Dog Is My Copilot: Rescue Tales of Flying Dogs, Second Chances and the Hero Who Might Live Next Door (Andrews McNeel Publishing) This unique and heartwarming tale of an airborne pet-rescue service is one of my favorite books of the year. Author Patrick Regan details the exploits of Pilots N Paws, an organization through which pilots volunteer their time, aircraft and expenses to fly dogs sitting on death row in certain shelters to other parts of the country and to shelters where they are more likely to be adopted. Little Boy Blue (Barrons) Pet rescue takes a grimmer but still hopeful tone in this combination memoir-nonfiction of a puppy rescued from a shelters gas chamber, and author Kim Kavins deeper look into the shelter system. Shelters arent great places at the best of times, but dogs deemed unadoptable often find themselves in the worst circumstances, with euthanasia just hours away. A grassroots movement to save dogs like Blue is building, and Kavin profiles some of these rescuers who donate time, money and love to find homes for as many death-row dogs as possible. Two Seeing Eye Dogs Take Manhattan: A Love Story (Guide Dog Adventures) On a lighter note, whats it like to be a seeing eye dog in the big city? Lloyd Burlingame takes a look at life from a service dogs view -- specifically, two dogs: Hickory and Kemp -- in this refreshing, unique and funny book. Pick it up today.

Last Weeks Weather A start to building this winter seasons snow pack began last week accruing daily snowfalls of a half inch a few flurries there. But more organized storm system brought us a more moderate snowfall of up to 7.2 inches being recorded at Greensboro. Just after the overnight snowfall, temperature plummeted to some below zero readings across northern Vermont. By the weekend, another big warm push took hold raising temperatures from freezing to well above by last Sunday into the 40s, mostly erasing that December winter look. Instead we are now back to mid November like conditions to start the week. The weather pattern that produces this kind of scenario moves warm Pacific air clear across the country and that was the case last Sunday and Monday as a series of monster storms lashed California and the Pacific Northeast with excessive rains, high freezing levels (less mountain snows) and very strong winds on the Pacific coastal mountains with one report of wind gusts exceeding 100 mph. See graphic below for lack of snow coast to coast, but good depths across Canada just to our north.

=Vermont Weather Stats from last week ending Monday the 19th of November Highest temperature: 56 degrees in Sunderland Sunday afternoon Dec. 2nd Lowest temperature: -7 degrees at Averill last Friday morning Nov.30th Heaviest one day rainfall: 1.08 inches in Westfield ending Monday morning Dec. 3rd Most Snowfall: 7.2 inches fell at Greensboro ending Friday morning Nov. 30th Most snow on the ground: 12 inches at Jay Peak Friday morning Nov. 30th Global Temperature Facts For Last Week Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 112 degrees Winton Airport (Australia) Last weeks coldest temperature was minus 58 degrees at Dzalinda (Russia) Atmospheric Chemistry Continues To Change Early November CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory were 393.19 and going up. This was compared to 390.44 last year 2011. Study New Benchmarks for Melting Polar Ice The vast ice sheets that cover Greenland and Antarctica have begun melting and sliding into the ocean as heat-trapping greenhouse gases continue to build in the atmosphere. How much and how fast the ice is disappearing, however, has been poorly understood, because the satellites that measure it havent always agreed. But a report published Thursday in Science has cleared up much of the uncertainty. A team of no fewer than 47 scientists from 36 laboratories, looking at data from 10 different satellites, has come up with numbers everyone is on board with: between 1992 and 2011, Greenland has lost an average of 152 billion metric tons of ice per year, while Antarctica has shed 71 billion, contributing 11 millimeters to the rise in sea level over that period about a fifth of the total (the rest has come from seawater expanding as it warms and from melting mountain glaciers). The estimates dont change projections about whats likely to happen for the rest of this century. Scientists best estimate is that that the ocean, which has risen an average of 8

inches since 1900, should rise about a foot and a half by 2040. But without a truly accurate record of how much melting has already occurred, its hard to know how good that projection is. It will also be hard to be certain if the melting starts to speed, or slow. The 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season Stats The 2012 Hurricane season ended with a total of nineteen named Tropical Cyclones. The worst being Hurricane Sandy which occurred late in the season. This is the third consecutive year with 19 named storms in the Atlantic, which is a remarkable level of activity for a three-year period. The closest comparable three-year period of activity occurred during 2003 - 2004 - 2005, when each season had fifteen-plus named storms. Since 1851, only two seasons--2005 (28 named storms) and 1933 (20 named storms) have been more active. The season for the Atlantic which was of the more bizarre, began early and ended relatively late with Sandy making the famous left hook after running into blocking high pressure. The rest is history, with much of the coastal populations of New Jersey and Long Island still reeling from the results. As I write this, a category 5 Super Typhoon with 160 mph winds was getting ready to lash parts of Mindanao in the Philippines Islands. Some studies have shown a trend fewer but stronger tropical cyclones in the future. Weather Trends AheadChangeable with more wide swings in Temperature into Next Week The Pacific Flood gates have opened! Just as lighter snows have fallen to make it feel a little bit more like the Christmas holiday season, warmer air and rains erased much of the snows for intermediate elevations and valley floors late last weekend. After warm weather moves out in the early morning hours today (Wednesday) colder air will move in aloft ending rain showers as few wet snow flakes. There after higher pressure will ridge into the region for a couple of dry weather days featuring some decent amounts of sunshine before more clouds arrive later in the day Saturday. A period of moderate rainfall may work into the region form a weather system that has a more southern orientation. Storms that track to the north usually exhibit less precipitation than normal, here in the Northeast U.S., instead we should see some moisture stream in from the Gulf of Mexico which can at times make fore copious amounts of rainfall. An important storm system will bring colder weather or at least more seasonable conditions after another warm up takes place late next weekend and early next week. This storm roughly on the 12th or 13th should bring colder but dry weather to follow. For skiers this will do two things, it will set up for the next storm being in the cold sector, and great snowmaking conditions should return with a vengeance.
