During the holiday season, the Wayside Restaurant and Bakery asked their customers to consider adding a $1, $3 or $5 donation to their bill to support the Vermont Foodbank. The Waysides loyal customers responded and together raised a total of $2,500. Through eight years of the Check Out Hunger promotion, owners Brian and Karen Zecchinelli have helped the Vermont Foodbank to provide nearly 77,000 meals for Vermonters in need. This year the Wayside Restaurant and Bakery addressed the issue of childhood hunger with their customers. In Vermont, more than 27,000 children live in households that struggle with hunger. As a kid-friendly family restaurant we welcomed the opportunity to help raise money and awareness for this important initiative, said Brian Zecchinelli. It was gratifying to see how generously our customers responded! We are so grateful to Brian, Karen, and their wonderful customers for their continued support in the work of feeding our neighbors in need, said John Sayles, Vermont Foodbank CEO. Partnerships like these are vital in raising funds and awareness as we work together to speak out against hunger.

Vermont Technical College is pleased to announce that Meredith Roberts, Interim BSN Director, Associate Professor has been appointed by the National League for Nursing to serve as an NLN ambassador. As a participant in this elite corps, Meredith Roberts RN, MSN, Doctoral Candidate, will keep faculty and administration informed about the NLNs initiatives, grant opportunities, conferences, publications, workshops, and other benefits available to NLN members. We created this selective program to make it as easy as possible for nurse faculty and nursing programs at all levels of academia to understand what the NLN has to offer to enhance professional development and status, explained NLN CEO Dr. Beverly Malone. At the same time, we expect the ambassadors to communicate to NLN professional staff and the board what issues and challenges are of greatest concern to nurse educators in the field so that we can maximize the effectiveness of our programming and services. The ambassadors are, in effect, the NLNs eyes and ears on campus. Ms Roberts has worked at Vermont Tech since 2004 and previously worked in a variety of care settings on the east coast from the ICU, to Oncology Case Manager, Infection Control Practitioner, Staff Educator, School Nurse, to administrator. It is anticipated that, as do all NLN ambassadors, Ms. Roberts will encourage colleagues at Vermont Tech to participate in NLN professional development programs; apply for research grants; submit abstracts for the annual Education Summit and manuscripts to the NLNs peer-reviewed journal, Nursing Education Perspectives; volunteer for task groups and special committees; run for elected office; nominate colleagues for awards; and complete research surveys. She will be prepared to answer any questions other faculty or administrators have about the NLN and, when necessary, refer them to the appropriate NLN staff person. The NLN Ambassador Program was established in 2006. Today there are more than 879 ambassadors representing schools of nursing in 49 states plus Canada, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. New ambassadors are appointed twice a year to meet the goal of having one in every school of nursing. The NLN is the premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. The NLN offers professional development, networking opportunities, testing services, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives to its 35,000 individual and 1,200 institutional members.

Secretary of State Jim Condos is pleased to announce that paperless licensing is coming soon to the 45 professions and occupations regulated within the Secretary of States Office of Professional Regulation (OPR). After successful implementation of a new licensing and enforcement system in 2009, all 45 professions and 59,000 licensees regulated by the Office already are now able to renew their licenses quickly and easily online every two years. With a recent 2012 upgrade, the OPR is now able to produce a printable digital copy of the licensees certificate at the time of online renewal. This eliminates the need to print, stuff and mail the approximate 20,000 licenses renewed each year. According to Condos, Making this change will increase efficiency, reduce costs, prevent fraud and protect the environment, without sacrificing public protection. Chris Winters, Director of OPR, had this to add, We all use the services of licensed professionals every day. Online verification of a license is much more accurate than a paper license issued once every two years. I encourage everyone to go to www.vtprofessionals.org and to click on Look up a Licensee to check the status of any licensed professional. This online information is updated instantly and will tell you if a licensee has any discipline or restrictions on his or her license. Secretary Condos also said, This will save several thousand dollars each year in paper, envelopes and postage alone, not to mention the staff time freed up for other priorities. Id much rather see staff focused on customer service instead of pushing paper. The paperless licensing initiative begins immediately with the Offices largest license renewal of registered nurses whose licenses are set to expire March 31.

Visitors to Farmers Night on February 20 at the Vermont State House in Montpelier will step back in time to experience the sweeping changes and excitement of the 1830s. Actors and musicians will give voice to the writings and music of Vermonters who lived through history, speaking passionately on politics, religion, and social change. The Vermont Historical Societys annual Farmers Night program will celebrate the Societys 175th anniversary by delving into the years that led up to its founding. The decade from 1830 to 1840 was one of the most stressful in American historyVermonters were beginning to confirm their own political, cultural, and social identity. Amid all this change and tumult, a group of Vermonters came together to found the Vermont Historical and Antiquarian Society in 1838. Four men Daniel Pierce Thompson, George P. Mansur, Henry Stevens, and Oramel H. Smith envisioned an organization that was, in its early days, primarily a library. For 175 years, the Vermont Historical Society has pursued its mission of documenting the remarkable history of the state. Our structure and methods have evolved over time, as history organizations have changed from antiquarian libraries to valued community centers and first-rate educational institutions, says Vermont Historical Societys executive director Mark Hudson. Farmers Night takes place February 20 at 7:30pm at the Vermont State House on State Street in Montpelier. This event is free and open to the public thanks to sponsors Denis, Ricker & Brown, Vermont Mutual Iinsurance Group, and Isham-Berwick Agency, Inc.

If you are 12 to 14 years old and want to learn about Vermonts wildlife and gain outdoor skills next summer, consider attending one of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Departments Green Mountain Conservation Camps. The one-week camp program is held at two locations -- Lake Bomoseen in Castleton and Buck Lake in Woodbury. Campers participate in hands-on learning experiences about fish and wildlife conservation, ecology, forestry, orienteering, safe firearm and archery techniques, swimming canoeing, fishing and more, in an attractive outdoor setting. Natural resource professionals come to the camp during the week to share information on their programs and take campers out for field activities. Conservation Camps open June 17 and continue until August 17. Tuition is $250 for the week, including food, lodging and equipment. Please check the Fish & Wildlife website (www. vtfishandwildlife.com) for general information

Conservation Camp Applications Now Available

as well as information about partial and full scholarship availability for those with financial need. Information about the program is under Education and Training on the left side of the home page. A printable application also is available. For more information about Green Mountain Conservation Camps contact: fwgmcc@state.vt. us or call 802-241-3768. Vermonts conservation camp program is unique because it is sponsored and directed by Fish & Wildlife Department professionals -- the same people who manage Vermonts fish and wildlife resources. Working biologists, foresters, game wardens, and conservation educators teach young people about Vermonts forests, wetlands and wildlife. The programs greatest strength is connecting young people to the outdoors. The camp program is sponsored in part through a grant from the Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration Program.

A statewide poster contest will challenge Vermont students to illustrate ways to effectively save and invest their money. The theme for the 2013 Be Money Wi$e Financial Literacy Poster Competition is: I can grow my money by . . . The contest is open to 3rd through 12th grade students. Grade division winners each win a $100 cash prize. For the last six years, the State Treasurers Office and the Vermont Bankers Association have sponsored the competition. The purpose of the yearly contest is to give teachers and parents a tool to engage children in discussions on money management. The 2013 theme allows students to explore the concept of making an investment. Parents and teachers can discuss with students how they can save money through an interest bearing account in a financial institution; explain how someone invests in stocks or bonds; and how people buy something that grows in value, such as a business or home, that can later be sold at a profit. The contest features three grade categories: elementary, 3rd-5th grades; middle school, 6th-9th grades; and high school, 10th-12th

Students Challenged to Consider Ways to Grow Their Money

grades. Top-placing students and their teachers will be recognized at a State House ceremony on April 11. In addition to cash prizes for the first place division winners, the students schools also will receive a $100 cash award in recognition of their support of financial literacy. The prizes are donated by the Vermont Bankers Association. The deadline for poster submissions to the Treasurers office is March 12, 2013. Posters must be on white paper stock and between 8 1/2 by 11 1/2 or 11 by 17 inches in size. Vermont entries may be sent to the Treasurers office, Attention Poster Competition, 109 State Street, Montpelier, Vermont 05609. Complete contest details are available on the Treasurers office web site, financial literacy main page. Go to www.MoneyEd.Vermont.gov to view the contest rules. Questions about the competition may be directed to the State Treasurers Office at 1-800-642-3191 or via e-mail at Treasurers. Office@state.vt.us.

I was scared but Dr. Glaess was very skilled and patient. My nurses were so great calm and supportive. They got me through it. And my baby is ok. Shes perfect. Shes beautiful. And Im ok too so I can say it was just great! Ashley Whicher and her daughter Kylin Jane returned to the CVMC Birthing Center to consult with our lactation specialist and stayed long enough for us to take this photo and talk with the happy mama, a CVMC Pharmacy Tech, about her new family. Little Kylin was born on January 30 and weighed 6lb/10 oz. We noticed two things about her: she is a very sound sleeper (Mom has no complaints) and she looks exactly like her mama. It was girls day out so we didnt get to meet her dad Brenton. The new family lives in Barre. We wish them all the best.

Tax Forms are mostly here. We have most of the Federal forms and a very few Federal instructions as I write this. More federal instructions, forms and schedules are coming in almost daily. The state forms and instruction books are here. All the state forms and instructions are in one books, so all the state forms and instructions are here. The delay in tax forms is many forms had to be revised because of the fiscal cliff legislation. The next toddler storytimes will be in March. The delay is because the winter weather makes it difficult to park, especially in front of the library with all the snow. We will get the word out when the exact dates are known. Your library needs friends, all the friends it can get. An excellent way to become a friend of the library is to join the Friends of the Ainsworth Public Library.

BADGER, LAURA LEE BOLLES, 46, of Washington, died February 2 at the Respite House in Williston, with family and friends at her bedside, after a valiant battle with breast cancer. Born on Feb. 24, 1966, in Barre, she was the second daughter of Leland and Shirlene (Elmer) Bolles. She attended Barre Town Elementary School and graduated from Spaulding High School in 1984. On Oct. 23, 1993, Laura married Peter Badger in the Hedding United Methodist Church in Barre. Following their marriage, they made their home in Washington. Their son, Dakotah John, was born in 1996. For the past 22 years, Laura was an employee of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont. She worked throughout her various courses of cancer treatment, rarely showing the private struggle she endured. At times, some of her co-workers were unaware that she was undergoing another course of treatment. Laura never wanted her cancer to affect those around her. Laura always felt that her most important job was as wife to Peter and mother to Dakotah. She continued to fight her cancer battle to gain more time with them, succeeding for nine long years. She was a proud mom, speaking often of Dakotah's accomplishments in school, sports and his other activities. Heavily involved with his schooling, she served as a school board member at Washington Village School. She and her family enjoyed camping, fishing and other outdoor sports. She always looked forward to summer when they could see the special friends they made camping over the years. Survivors include her husband, Peter and son, Dakotah, of Washington; her father, Leland Bolles, of East Barre; two sisters, Linda Otis and husband, Marcel, of Barre, and Cheryl Joslin and husband, Erik, of Warren; several nieces and nephews; and many other extended family members and close friends. Her daughter, Brooke; her mother; her niece, April Otis; and her great-nephew, Hunter Potvin, predeceased her. DERONDE, MADELEINE, of Montpelier, passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones, on February 3. Madeleine was born at home in Montpelier during the Great Flood of 1927, to Emile and Augustine Gagne. She spent the entirety of her life in Montpelier, attending St. Michael's Catholic School and St. Augustine Church. She was also a member of the Catholic Daughters of America, the Montpelier Emblem Club #369 and the Ladies Home Dem. At age 16, she took her first job at the Woolworth's five-and-dime. By age 25, she was a single mother of five, a waitress at The Lobster Pot and a lab technician at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, helping to make Vermont a brucellosis-free state. She later married Philip DeRonde, owner of DeRonde Plastics. After his passing, Madeleine became a land developer; the road bordering their property in East Montpelier still bears the DeRonde name. Madeleine was an avid gardener and needlepoint enthusiast. She enjoyed the many pleasures of life - food, dancing and music of all kinds. Above all, she loved spending time with her extensive family. Madeleine was predeceased by her husband, Philip DeRonde; two sisters, Marie Law and Trudy Miccolo; and two brothers, Merrill Gagne and Gerard Gagne. She is survived by three sisters, Jeannine Wood, Lucille Collins and guardian angel Pauline Goodrich. She is lovingly remembered by her five children, John Feddersen Jr., Tom Feddersen and wife, Linda, Marcy Kontis and husband, George, Richard Feddersen and wife, Patti, and Fred Feddersen, as well as 14 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. BERNARDINI, JEAN BOLADO, 62, of Barre City, died January 30 at her home, battling multiple myeloma cancer with dignity and courage, since 2004. Her family was at her bedside. Born Jean Emilia Bolado, on Aug. 26, 1950, in Barre City, she was the daughter of Richard and Marilyn (Shepard) Bolado. Jean graduated from Spaulding High School in 1968, and attended the Thompson School of Practical Nursing in Brattleboro. She was employed for many years by the State of Vermont in various departments, and had also worked at the Vermont State Employees Credit Union. Prior to her retirement, Jean had worked in the classified department of The Times Argus in Barre. Her special interests were antiquing, home decorating and stenciling, as well as spending time with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed apple picking, playing cards, trips to the Maine coast and Tucson, Ariz., and volunteer work at Central Vermont Hospital. Following an earlier marriage and divorce, Jean
Locally Family Owned & Operated Since 1908

married Douglas L. Bernardini on Oct. 1, 1992, in East Barre. They had lived in Montpelier, Tucson, Ariz., and since 2007, at their present home. Besides her husband Doug, she leaves two sons: Brian McAvoy and wife, Katina, and Bradley McAvoy and fiance, Jill Draper, all of Barre City; three grandchildren; a stepdaughter, Cynthia Shamlian in New Jersey; stepsons Michael Bernardini in California, and Steven Bernardini and wife, Nancy, of Langhorne, Pa.; 10 step-grandchildren; two sisters: Janet Reynolds and husband, Gordon, and Joann Scherk and husband, David; sisters-in-law, Connie Hudson and Sally Foti; a nephew and three nieces; three aunts: Eva Brown, Virginia Martin and Gloria Shepard; and many cousins. Also surviving is her former daughter-in-law, Susan McAvoy. Her parents and infant sister, Lisa Maria, predeceased her. MILES, BEATRICE LETTER, 101, passed away peacefully on January 26 at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin, where she had been a resident for several months. Beatrice Laura Letter was born in Barre on July 14, 1911 to Anna Therrien and Eugene Letter. After elementary school in Williamstown and two years at Spaulding High School, she went to work as a secretary/bookkeeper for her father and brothers at Letter Granite Co. In 1940, Bea married John Roswell Miles, of Graniteville, who was active in the Vermont granite/ stone industry. A daughter (Judith Ann) was born in 1942 and a son (John Stewart) in 1945. After the war years, during part of which Bea and John worked for Sikorsky Aircraft in Connecticut, the Miles family moved to Barre, and Bea lived there until moving to The Gardens at Williamstown Square in 2005. Bea and John were active members of the St. Monica Parish. For decades, Bea was a member and supporter of Catholic Daughters of America. In the mid-1950s, Bea and John established the John R. Miles Supply Co. Bea, as the company's vice president, office head and bookkeeper, was her husband's partner in the company's operations and management until John's death in 1980, when she assumed the reins. She teamed with John's right-hand man, Charlie Martin, who expanded operations and purchased the company, now operating as Miles Supply Inc., and serving the stone industry throughout the eastern U.S. Bea was also a dedicated member of the Barre Altrusa Club. Bea loved to travel. In addition to business trips, there were scores of visits throughout the U.S. and Canada over the years, voyages in the 1980s with the Rev. Reid Mayo's travel group, and trips to Europe with her family. In her mid-40s, Bea took up the game of golf, which became her fondest avocation for the next 50 years. She was a member of the Barre Country Club, and her golf clubs accompanied her on many trips to Cape Cod and Florida over the years. Bea also liked to bowl. She and her sister, Lorraine Clark, were members of Twin City Bowling's "Coffee and Donuts League." They christened their team "The Busy Bees" and bowled in the women's league for many years. Her other sport was cross-country skiing, which she started late in life but couldn't get enough of. Well into her 80s, she continued playing golf and card games with women decades younger than she was, who became her good friends. Bea was also a music lover and began taking piano lessons at age 45. For the next 50 years, she entertained her family daily with pieces ranging from Mozart to Gershwin. But family was her biggest passion of all. Although loving tradition, Bea was a modern woman in the way she combined her homemaking and business duties, finding time for a lot of grandparenting, as well as her many civic, church and sporting activities. For the last 40-plus years, she has been known in many circles simply as "Grammy Bea." The Gardens in Williamstown welcomed Bea as a resident in 2005; her daughter, Judy, moved there in 2008; and her younger sister, Lorraine, also moved there in 2011. Bea's remaining sibling, sister Jeannette, who turned 106 last Christmas, lives with her family in Chicago. Bea is survived by her daughter, Judith; her son, John, and wife, Thea; three grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and five step-grandchildren and their families. She is also survived by her sisters, Jeannette and Lorraine; her sister-in-law, Margaret Foster; and dozens of nieces and nephews and their children. Bea's Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Saturday, June 8, 2013, at 10am in St. Monica Church in Barre. BERNASCONI, JOHN "JACK," 82, of Wildersburg Common, died peacefully on February 3, from complications of Parkinson's disease and pneumonia. He was born Dec. 7, 1930, in Quincy, Mass., to Dorothy and Rene Bernasconi and moved to Barre when he was 7. John came from five generations of granite workers who immigrated to Barre from northern Italy. He graduated from Spaulding High School ('49) where he played football and basketball, was a member of the band, orchestra and attended Boys State. After high school, he hitchhiked across the country to attend Colorado College on a football scholarship and graduated from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and belonged to the DAV (Disabled American Veterans). Following the military, he graduated from the University of Connecticut Law School. From there, he returned to Barre and married Carole Griffin (1959), where they made their home for 46 years and raised three children. He was a member of a local musicians union for several years, playing slide trombone with many well-known artists. John was elected state's attorney for three terms in the 1960s and later went into private practice until retirement. He became well-known for his litigation skills and his work in business and family law. John loved skiing with family and friends and took ski vacations to Switzerland and Austria. He had his three young children going down the slopes by the time they could walk. John also loved golf and was a member of the Country Club of Barre for many years. He was a member of the Lions Club (serving as president), the Elks Club, the Mutuo for over 50 years, the SHIT Club (Sugar Hill Investment Trust) and a member of the VT Real Estate Commission. John and his late wife, Carole, loved to cook and entertain. John loved a good argument, was a voracious reader, had a sharp wit and always had a joke or a comeback line.

Roger wrote plays for stage and screen, one of which, "The Other Me," earned honorable mention in a national competition. He also wrote, produced, and filmed his own original short film, "The Arb." Roger was a director of the Christian Energy Mission, founded in part by his father, a nonprofit that focuses on Christian counseling and earth stewardship through design, development, and teaching in the areas of natural resources, appropriate technology, alternative energy, and energy efficiency.

In 2000, he was honored by the state of Vermont for his public service to the town of Corinth. Guy had many interests and loves, especially gardening.

Guy also spent most of his time in early spring on the Miller farm in Corinth boiling sap to make maple syrup, maple cream and maple candy. Guy would often tap up to 2,000 trees in one season. Oftentimes during good sap runs, he was known to spend days in his sugar house boiling 18 hours a day, doing what he had to do to get the syrup made. Each year, the signal of the end of sugaring season was the annual sugar-on-snow parties at Guy and Gloria Miller's, which will sadly be missed. Guy was a person who could be counted on. He was warm and caring but firm when he needed to be, especially if it involved federal, state or local government. Guy was quick with a smile and enjoyed a good story. It was this warm personality that allowed Guy to make friends wherever he went. Guy is survived by his sons, Guy C.

Editor: On Wednesday, February 13th, Berlin voters have a game-changing opportunity to participate in a bond vote for a Town Water System. Voting will take place from 10am to 7pm at the Town offices on Shed Road. The planned system will provide high quality water at a significantly lower cost than would be provided by connection to the Montpelier system. The service area for the water system is essentially our commercial/industrial zoned area referred to as the plateau area. If the Town can offer water and sewer in this area, it will not only encourage growth where we have planned for expansion, but will also increase taxable property. The most important thing to remember is that only water users will pay for the system and that connection to the system is purely voluntary. Having a water system will solve many existing contaminated private and public water systems included our own municipal building and will provide fire protection to a large portion of town, potentially lowering insurance rates. Our Water Committee has been working on this initiative, with the support of the Berlin Selectboard, for many years and are now at a pivotal point where a formal show of commitment from voters is important. Please go to the Town website at www.berlinvt.org/ where you will find a map of the proposed system and a summary of the project. This is an important bond vote I would encourage you to read about the project and to vote yes. Pat McDonald Berlin

While the budget figures were set during the earlier budget process, citizens are invited to ask questions and discuss and debate all ballot items (except election contests, which are being handled at separate candidate forums). Hope to see you there. Jean Olson Montpelier

read in the Times Argus stories about molestation, rape and even murder perpetrated in our own communities. Rape is an issue that few people want to talk about. More often that not, women in the armed forces, in a work situation, or the many immigrant field workers will not report to the authorities for fear of job retribution. How fair is this? Erika Eichelberger, writing in The Nation, reports that there are some 630,000 female migrant farm workers in the U.S., and at least 60% are undocumented and afraid of deportation if they speak up. When interviewed, 80% of female farmworkers reported being sexually assaulted or harassed. Many feel that rape comes with the job, and they need money to send home to family. The law that would have helped undocumented women, The Violence Against Women Act, was allowed to expire in the current House of Representatives. This law came up for authorization every five years since signed by Clinton in 1994. It finally passed the Senate Judiciary Committee, but House Republicans wanted fewer protections for women, and the bill was allowed to die in the 112th Congress. Senator Leahy was a sponsor of the bill, and has said that he still has nightmares of the domestic violence scenes he saw when he was a prosecutor in Vermont. There are many reasons to support the planned V Day event in central Vermont. To quote Eve Ensler, We are calling for, inviting, challenging one billion women, and all the people who love them - and we hope many men will join the campaign to walk off their jobs, walk out of their schools, walk out of their homes, and gather in fields, stadiums, churches, blocks, wherever, beaches, and dance, until the violence stops. Please join us on February 14th, 11:30am in front of the State House. Lucy Nichol Montpelier

Support for Governors Proposed Child Care Investment

Join V Day Efforts to Stop Violence Against Women and Children

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy

Editor: This is the 15th anniversary of marking Feb. 14th as V Day, a day to remember the violence against women and children. Eve Ensler, author and organizer, worked to develop the City of Joy in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a revival center for women victims of sexual abuse. It was there that V Day was conceived. It has been relatively easy for us in the United States to dismiss accounts of brutal murder in India, Pakistan and the Congo, but recent events have shaken our complacency. It is not unusual to

Editor: Vermont Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (VACCRRA) wholeheartedly supports Governor Shumlins proposed $17 million investment in the child care system. The Governors education agenda shines a spotlight on the importance of high quality child care and education for our children and communities. An infusion of funding into the current child care financial assistance benefit program is long overdue. Today, the state pays less than half the cost of child care so low income parents must choose programs based upon affordability rather than quality. The Governors proposal would increase the number of families able to access assistance paying for child care by updating the eligibility criteria; would increase the benefit level for those who participate, creating greater access to quality child care choices and; will increase reimbursement rates for child care programs which will

Breaches close to home always make people think...do I have insurance for this? An example... December 22, 2011: Good News Garage - Burlington, Vermont. Total records: 14,000 (Unknown number of SSN's). A November 25th home burglary resulted in the loss of an encrypted data tape. The tape was inside a backpack that was stolen from an employee's locked car while it was parked at home. The data tape had names, addresses, and in some cases Social Security numbers of Good News Garage donors dating back 15 years! How will GNG respond to this breach? Will they notify everyone affected individually? Will they offer free credit monitoring for those at risk? Will they lose business from this breach? What about Public Relations costs? All these actions can be very expensive. Affordable insurance coverage is available. If you want to know more, contact us at...

Something Worth Watching

ne cold and lonely evening last week, the kids were out, my wife was at work, and I did something that is quite unusual for me to do. I went to the living room and turned on the TV. Yes, I know how ridiculous it sounds, that turning on a TV is an unusual event, but I dont do it often. It isnt that we dont use our TV, its just that I am nearly never the one who actually turns the thing on. I may stop in the room and watch a show with my wife or the kids, but it probably wasnt my idea. Years ago, for some reason, I seem to have wandered away from the very old habit of spending every evening in front of the tube, as television used to be called. (These days almost no one has a TV with a picture tube, except for our family and some guy in India, I think.) After that cold and lonely evening last week, I am beginning to believe that TV also wandered away from me, as much as I did from it. Please let me explain. You see, I actually come from a time before there were hundreds of channels to watch, and even before TVs h a d remotes. Can you believe that? When I was a child we watched either CBS, NBC or ABC, and I still remember the three channels that those networks occupied on the dial, in our area. On the dial? What electronic device even has a dial anymore? Dont get me wrong, I was not in a coma for all these years that TV has evolved, or devolved into what it is today, and there are still some quality shows being made. I just remember, fondly, those days when there was a lot to watch on TV, just on those three networks. Right after the evening news with Walter Crankcase, as my dad used to call him, the sitcoms, comedy hours, and evening dramas would come on. Those old shows, when they were new, actually stayed in their special weeknight time slots for years and years. You always knew when Red Skelton, Carol Burnett, and Archie Bunker would appear. The Wonderful World of Disney and Bonanza entered millions of homes every Sunday evening. Those By G. E. Shuman

shows, in those days, seemed almost a part of your family. Later, in the seventies, a show called MASH made it for ten seasons, and had fans so committed that they would miss their own birthday party to watch it. (Those were the days before recording video was possible in homes, and men chiseled pictures into the walls of caves.) As old as all of this makes me sound, I really think that kids now have no idea what they are missing, from the golden years of TV. Things have changed so much. After I located the TV remote, on that cold and lonely night, (are you feeling sorry for me yet?) and the satellite remote and the surround sound remote, I scrolled through hundreds of possibilities of things to watch on the endless channel menu, and actually saw the following titles of todays evening shows: Wife Swap, Dance Moms, Easy Wrinkle Miracle, Brazil Butt Lift, (that one actually intrigued me a bit) Live Jewelry Deals, Best Vacuum Ever, Improve Prostate Heath (wow), Insanity Workout, Easy Wrinkle Miracle (again, in case you missed it the rst time), Trishas Southern Kitchen, Swamp People, The Dead, Beautiful Bedroom, Property Wars, Cake Boss, Mad Money, Balding?, The Beauty of Snakes, (and my favorite) My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding. Really?... I mean, REALLY... REALLY? Saddened to discover that I am an unenlightened dinosaur, incapable of appreciating the merits of these wonderful shows, (after all, someone actually produced them) I picked the remote back up, searched the sea of buttons until I found the one with the off icon, and pushed that thing, hard. Where is Red Skelton when you need him? (Kids, remember that name, buy a disk of his old shows, and laugh your keesters off. If you know what a keester is.) When the satellite dish contract is up, I might just rip that thing off the house and mount it on the front lawn, with its little gray bowl pointing straight up. I think it will make a wonderful bird bath. At least then it will nally bring me something worth watching.

e still have the same number of animals that we have had for many years, it just seems that all of a sudden, it seems like more! One recent Sunday, I was home alone and I decided to make a cake and divide it into two so I could fulfill my promise to give one to the two wonderful physical therapists that I see at Back to Action in Waitsfield. Well, I made the cake, made a wonderful chocolate glaze to ice it with and I thought that all was well. As it turned out, I think that I might have overdone the chocolate glaze but, what the heck, can you ever really have too much chocolate? So, I decided that it would be alright and Malcolm said he loved his cake, and that it definitely wasnt too chocolaty! Then I put the one for the P.T. office on the dining room table and covered it with a piece of aluminum foil. Done! When I went to check on it so I could take it down to their offices, right in the middle of the foil was a big, deep cat paw print. When I took the foil off, my lovely cake not only had a crater in it, a big glob of icing was stuck to the foil. For a moment I thought that I should probably forget the whole thing and just either throw the cake away or give it to Malcolm. But a wiser head prevailed and I took it into the kitchen and cut and pasted a lot of the cake that I had given to Malc and added yet a little more of the glaze to smooth over the top. Victor, who I knew was the one who stepped in it, of course, arrived and watched the entire process and insisted on tasting the glaze in the pot. At least, he didnt insist on tasting it after it was applied to the damage he had made on the cake! I covered the repaired cake with plastic wrap this time and rushed it downtown and left it at the P.T. office. If they like it, I will feel that I did the right thing to repair it, and if they dont, I can always blame it on Victor!

aspect of his life. He doesnt seem to realize that she is small, old and a little chubby. He is huge and wont be a year old until February 23rd! Rufus does have a BFF (best friend forever) who lives next door and here is how every single day goes.. Baler (the BFF) shows up and stands at our door and barks. Once Rufus hears this greeting, he also barks and dances on his tippy toes until someone opens the door to let him out. And then they play and play and play. Finally, Baler gets tired and just goes home. Rufus then comes to the door, which has been left on the latch rather than closed tightly, and he pushes his way in and collapses on his bed. And he takes a little nap until Baler comes back! This goes on two, three or even four times a day. One day Baler did come in with Rufie and I caught him in my laundry room preparing to lift his leg. I may be old and cant see very well, but I could see that and managed to get him to go outside before we had an accident. Baler is older than Rufus, how much I dont know, but he is very sweet, is a chocolate Labrador and is a wonderful playmate and friend to Rufus. That Lily hates him makes no difference to either of the boys! And I am sure you are wondering what the cats think about the new young boy and of course, his BFF. Well, believe it or not, they love Rufus. James especially loves him and Victor is Victor and tolerates him when he feels like it! Yul I am not so sure about. But we actually live in a peaceable kingdom and everyone gets along. And Rufus loves everybody, especially Sebastian and all my grandchildren and visitors who are little. Although he has turned out to be a lot bigger than we anticipated, he doesnt know he is big and that makes him very easy to live with. Oh, and Malcolm told me yesterday that we are actually going to have a birthday party for him. That party will include Baler, Eddie (white lab who lives with Polly and Russ), Clover (Tobi and Heidis Old English Bull Terrier) and hopefully, Lucy (Sarah and Renes 9-month-old great Dane puppy)! Doesnt that sound like fun? And wouldnt you like to come? But never fear, I will tell you all about it if you cant make it.

by Senator Bill Doyle oodbury was chartered on the 16th day of August 1781 during the time that Vermont was a republic and the Revolutionary War was still going on. The charter was granted to Colonel Ebenezer Wood and others, and most people feel this was the origin of the name of the town. However, ten other states have a Woodbury, including Connecticut, and one theory suggests that since many of the grantees were from Woodbury, Connecticut, that was likely the origin of the town name. The charter required that the proprietors cultivate five acres of land and build a house at least 18 feet square or have one family settled on each right in the term of three years next after the circumstances of the war will admit of a settlement with safety. The charter went on to say that all suitable pine timber would be reserved for a navy. There were many churches in the early history of Woodbury, including Free Will Baptists and Methodists. In 1826, there were 40 Free Will Baptists and 20 Methodists. In 1810 there was a

revival in Woodbury, and in 1821 or 1822, there was a general revival, prayer meetings being held in nearly every house in Woodbury. One purpose of the revivals was religious conversion. In 1848, there was a Sabbath School organized with six teachers, 30 scholars and 200 volumes in the library. The first settlement was in East Woodbury, near Cabot, where Woodbury residents went to get their grain ground and their logs sawed. The first school in Woodbury was taught by Sally White in 1808. In 1812 there were three school districts, and by 1870, there were 10 school districts, with 308 pupils. The Woodbury Granite Company was organized in 1878 and encompassed 25 acres. Woodbury granite had a special quality of gray adapted for monumental and building purposes. Enormous blocks of granite were moved from this quarry, the largest of which was 275 feet long by 15 feet wide.

the State of Pennsylvania. Woodbury granite had been used in the buildings original design. Indeed, blocks of Woodbury granite were shipped all over the world and were used in the construction of at least four other state capitol buildings, in addition to Pennsylvania. Woodbury originally had rail service to the granite quarries, but in the late 1930s, the rails were removed and sold to Japan. During the height of the granite industry, according to Vera Batchelder, postmistress of Woodbury, there were boarding houses for 800 quarry workers. In the 1830s, the townspeople became disenchanted with their towns name and asked to have it changed to Monroe, which became an act of the legislature in 1838. The residents of Woodbury selected Monroe to honor James Monroe, the fth president of the United States, who was greatly respected in Vermont. Monroe had visited Vermont in 1817 and many people traveled long distances to see him and hear him speak. In 1843, the residents asked to have the name changed back to Woodbury and said the name change was in honor of Ebenezer Wood, the rst proprietor. In addition to East Woodbury, there was Woodbury Center, which today has a post ofce that was established in 1828. South Woodbury had a post ofce established in 1864, but it closed in

the 1970s. West Woodbury is part of the Worcester Range of the Green Mountains, known as the Woodbury Mountain. There are more ponds and bodies of water in Woodbury than in any town in Vermont, the total number being 23. All of this water drains out of Woodbury either to the Lamoille River basin to the north or the Winooski basin to the south. During the Civil War, Vermont had more volunteers per capita than any other state in the Union, and Woodbury had the highest percentage of any community in Vermont. In the late war, Woodbury claims and is justly entitled to an excellent and honorable war record. One hundred and forty-four of her patriotic sons enlisted and went into the army a number that more than lled her quota, who came forward without being stimulated by public meetings, or the offer of excessive bounties. No town in the state, with a population as small, sent more men to the war than Woodbury.

provide greater stability for the fragile child care system. This will be an important leap forward that will help us reach the Governors education and workforce goals and create a brighter future for Vermont. VACCRRA appreciates that the Shumlin administration is responsive to the tax burden concerns of Vermonts citizens and is seeking to fund this initiative within current state resources. Understandably, many questions have been raised about the consequences of shifting funding from within the portfolio of resources that make it possible for low-income Vermonters to survive in a difficult economic environment. VACCRRA is interested in learning more about the impact that the proposed funding shift from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to the Child Care Financial Assistance Program (CCFAP) would have on families participating in both programs, as well as the impact on all low-income Vermonters who depend upon the EITC. We are actively working with local and state partners to clarify information and seek answers to these questions. Regardless of the funding source, we applaud the Governors proposed investment in child care as smart, strategic investment in our future.

Love Story
The story of Valentines Day begins in the third century. The oppressive Roman emperor, Claudius, ordered all Romans to worship 12 gods, but Valentinus was dedicated to the ideals of Christ. Not even the threat of death could keep him from practicing his beliefs. He was arrested and imprisoned. During the last weeks of Valentinus life, a remarkable thing happened. Seeing that he was a man of learning, the jailer asked whether his daughter Julia might be brought to Valentinus for lessons. She had been blind since birth. Valentinus read stories of Romes history to her. He taught her arithmetic, and he told her about God. She saw the world through his eyes, trusted in his wisdom and found comfort in his quiet strength. Valentinus, does God really hear our prayers? Julia asked one day. Yes, my child, He hears each one, he replied. Do you know what I pray for every morning and every night? I pray that I might see. I want so much to see everything youve told me about. God does what is best for us if we will only believe in Him, Valentinus said. Oh, Valentinus, I do believe, Julia said fervently. I do! She knelt and grasped his hand. They sat quietly together, each praying. Suddenly there was a brilliant light in the prison cell. Radiant, Julia cried, Valentinus, I can see! I can see! Praise to God, Valentinus exclaimed. On the eve of his death, Valentinus wrote one last note to Julia, urging her to stay close to God, and he signed it From Your Valentine. He was executed the next day, Feb. 14, 270 A.D., and buried at what is now the Church of Praxedes in Rome. It is said that Julia planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave. Today, the almond tree remains a symbol of abiding love and friendship. On each Feb. 14, St. Valentines Day, messages of affection and love are exchanged around the world.

Made Fresh Every Day at Morse Farm

With Valentines Day upon us, I thought this week Id share with you some specials gifts you can give your children that will last longer than any traditional greeting card. So, let me get to the heart of the matter and provide some ways to tell your children you love them. First, use plenty of positive words with your child each and every day to build their selfesteem and self-confidence. Using words like good job or you are being so nice are some great ways to say I love you to your child. Also, give your child a hug or pat on the back if he or shes in a bad mood. If you have an older child, have a secret sign or gesture of affection to show your love. This will have a calming effect and will encourage your child to talk with you about whats bothering them. Make time for your children each day and also create what I call special time with each of your children every week. Do something different with your child that is different from your daily routine and plays to their particular strengths. For example, if they like to cook, let them make cookies with you. If

Getting to the Heart of Valentines Day

they like to draw, sit down and work on an art project together. Set aside time for family game nights and let your child choose the game to play. Doing so allows you to show each child how unique they are and that you love them for their uniqueness. Believe it or not, a great Valentine to your child is to make sure they stay healthy by keeping their checkups and immunizations up-to-date, that you ensure they exercise regularly and that your home is safe from accidents. Finally, dont forget to simply say I love you to your child on a daily basis. As far as Im concerned, you cant say that phrase enough. Hopefully, tips like this will do far more than Cupid arrows can when it comes to hitting the bulls eye and truly showing your children how much you love them. In return, you will see how much they love you so that Valentines Day is not just celebrated on February 14, but every day of the year.

Over 1000 spectators cheered on their local teams, participated in fun activities, and enjoyed live music and dance from Vermont youth groups, Diversity Rocks! and Sweet Transition. Jr Iron Chef VT and the Vermont Farm to School movement are models that I am proud to recommend to the whole country, said Senator Patrick Leahy of this incredible event. In September, 74 teams from more than 55 schools got to work. They created original recipes, learned basic cooking techniques, and developed new relationships with local chefs and farmers. We are constantly impressed with the efforts of the hundreds of students and community volunteers from all over our state that make Jr Iron Chef such a success, said event organizer, Libby McDonald. We could not be more excited to celebrate Vermonts Farm to School movement with this incredibly joyful group of leaders.

By Tom Herzig Mike Schwarz is making a comeback from a near-fatal traumatic brain injury. Its an inspirational work-in-progress, difficult beyond words and supported to the fullest by his parents Fran and Wendy, his sister Nevin, his extended family, caregivers, friends and snowboarders worldwide. Schwarz, a Chester native and UVM graduate, was injured during a quarterpipe snowboarding competition in 2009. He spent three weeks on life support and nearly three months in a coma. Mike travels with his folks weekly to Choice TBI Support Services in Montpelier to participate in its community-based rehabilitation program. John Amarante, beamingly referred to by Mike as Johnny Boy in a recent interview, serves as Mikes full-time life skills aide. Mike is known as El Suarez, a moniker he earned with his snowboarding exploits. Schwarz has regained cognitive skills, mobility and strength such that hes actively designing and marketing his own line of ElschwarEZ Designs socks with the help of Gail Bourne of Wheel House Designs in Morrisville. Bourne launched her business out of her home in Stowe in the late 90s with a novelty cow sock line. The Schwarz family approached me and Id said Id be happy to help sell Mikes socks, Bourne said. Mike sends me the designs - we do the artwork to prep for the knitting machines. I try to treat him as any regular customer. He knows his age group and he does good designs. We feel very proud that theyve asked us to help. Mike received invaluable assistance in outfitting an office in his home from the Vermont Division for the Blind and Visually Impaired. We were able to provide some adaptive technology and physical supports that increased Mikes access to move about his workspace, DBVI counselor Mike Goldberg said. Mikes injury changed the lives of the whole family, which has been very supportive of him. Theyve worked very hard. Its a month-tomonth, year-to-year process. Mikes dad taught first graders for 33 years. His mom recently returned to part-time work as a massage therapist. Both parents retired from their teaching jobs to be able to care for Mike in their home. The social interaction Mike gets from coming up here to Choice TBI Support Services and from his sock business is invaluable, Fran Schwarz said. He gets up in the morning and puts his game face on. Hes motivated. Hes driven. Its amazing. Working with Mike has been rich, John Amarante said. Seeing him through his TBI is a slow progression forward. He tolerates more and more. Hes pushed himself. Its enjoyable working with him. Mike says hes recently enjoyed raft riding in the snow down a gently sloped nearby hill - almost as much as he enjoys his four-year-old nephew Koa and pizza. Two kinds of BBQ sauce, cheese, onions, peppers, chicken, sausage and mozzarella is what you need, he advised. My coma has given me such an appreciation for everything, Schwarz said. I love being alive. I love this moment. Right here. Right now.

Sock It To Us, Mike! TBi Survivor Mike Schwarz On The Mend


Mike Schwarz designs his own Super Soft Chillin Socks line.

Snowboard tragedies are not uncommon. This month, The Crash Reel, a documentary by filmmaker Lucy Walker about the recovery of Vermonter Kevin Pearce who suffered a TBI during the Olympic Trials in 2009, debuts at the Sundance Film Festival.

Usually sold in flattened rounds, it is often served toasted with butter along with a spot of tea in the afternoon. The dough is sweeter than sandwich bread, but not as rich as cake, and the citrons and raisins add flavor and texture to the final product. In Ireland it is sometimes called Birn Breac, and the term is also used as two words in its more common version. Many Irish historians say the name to be from the Irish word birn - a loaf - and breac - speckled (due to the raisins in it), hence it means a speckled loaf (a similar etymology to the Welsh bara brith). The Yankee Chef knows the truth. The yeast used was skimmed from the top of fermenting beer or cider. This suggests an alternative etymology, from the use of barm as just such a yeast and brack, meaning, still, speckled. Note that the most common spelling in Ireland is Barmbrack. 1 3/4 c. brewed black tea, cold 1 c. packed brown sugar 1 1/4 c. golden raisins 1/4 c. chopped candied citron 1 1/4 c. self-rising flour 1 egg, beaten

Put the tea, sugar, raisins and citron into a bowl, cover and leave to soak overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8 inch round pan. Sift the flour into the fruit mixture, add the egg and beat well. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Leave in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack. The WORLD page 17

His vibrant, abstract paintings and drawings have been seen occasionally in the windows of businesses around Barre City. Hedding uses lines to great advantage and draws viewers into his art through intense strokes of his pens. On occasion, he embellishes his art with word clues; viewers need Dennis Hedding stands with his to spend time looking into his artwork in front of SPA after shoveling around the fire hydrants and complex patterns. clearing crosswalks, as a volunHedding was on the work teer, in Barre following a major team that helped to clean out storm. the SPA building before the renovations began more than 13 years ago, and he has been a constant helper and cheerleader for SPA through thick and thin. For example, when the flood of May, 2011, took place, Hedding hitchhiked to SPA to help shovel out muck from the building. On that same day, he saved a baby sparrow from death and reunited it with its mother. He is a man with a mammoth spirit and purpose. His artwork demonstrates the depth from which he works.

The Perfect Place for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Sarah Beggs, an experienced organizer of community arts programming and museum tours, has joined Helen Day Art Center in Stowe as Education Coordinator. The Art Center offers over thirty classes and workshops annually, welcomes hundreds of students on exhibit tours, and offers scholarships to ensure that everyone can participate in these creative experiences. I have been encouraging exploration and discovery through art for the last ten years, and Im looking forward to expanding and diversifying the programming at the Center, Beggs said. I moved from Minneapolis to Vermont, drawn by the beauty, the sense of community, and my impression that positive social change is a core attitude here. I feel lucky to have found Helen Day Art Center and to join a team dedicated to engaging and enriching the community. Sarah was the Artability Coordinator and Volunteer Coordinator at People Incorporated, a mental health service organization in Minneapolis, Minn. She organized weekly workshops for adults which culminated in an annual three day exhibit while coordinating volunteers at multiple program sites, organizing public programs, and writing grants. Prior to that she worked at the Minnesota Childrens Museum coordinating programs for families and children; and at an elementary school in Portland, Oregon developing and implementing art curriculum for students after school and in the classroom. Sarah has a Masters degree in Museum Studies from University of Colorado and a BA in Art History from St. Olaf College. We are fortunate to have found someone with Sarahs range of skills and experience, coupled with her energy, enthusiasm and dedication to connecting all people with art and creative experiences, said Nathan Suter, Executive Director of the Art Center. Im interested in helping individuals communicate and connect through art, and fostering life-long creative growth in our participants, she continues, illustrating to a wide community the capacity of art to uplift, transform, bring people together, and alter attitudes, feelings, and thoughts.

In one of his most highly regarded and powerful songs, folksinger Woody Guthrie invited his audience to take a trip with me to 1913 to Calumet, Michigan in the copper country. On Sunday, February 17, audiences can accompany Guthries son, Arlo, as he revisits the scene in 1913 Massacre, the next film in Barre Historical Societys Labor Films series. The film will be shown at Barres historic Old Labor Hall, 46 Granite St., at 4pm. Guthries vivid ballad relates the story of a Christmas Eve party for union miners that ended when someone yelled fire. The ensuing rush for doors that couldnt be opened resulted in the deaths of 73 people, including 59 children. Guthrie attributes the false alarm and closed doors to thugmen working for the copper bosses, a commonly held belief. Yet the exact circumstances are not that clear, according to the film, and Calumet residents remain divided as they continue to try to understand the tragedy. Residents also wonder why the Italian Hall, the scene of the party, was demolished in 1984. Along with Arlo and excerpts from the song, the film presents the last living witnesses of the 1913 tragedy as it reconstructs Calumets past and explores its continuing economic struggles. Admission to 1913 Massacre is by donation. Proceeds will benefit the Labor Hall. Visit www.oldlaborhall.com for more information.

Scrag Mountain Music continues its exciting season of Community Supported Chamber Music with a program that combines folk and classical music. New York City musicians Owen Dalby (violin) and Meena Bhasin (viola) will join forces with Montpelier flutist Karen Kevra and artistic directors Evan Premo (double bass) and Mary Bonhag, (soprano). Admission is by free will donation: Come as you are. Pay what you can. Performances will be held at on Friday, Feb. 15 at Green Mountain Girls Farm in Northfield; Saturday, Feb. 16 at Warren United Church; and Sunday, Feb. 17 at Lost Nation Theater in Montpelier. All performances are at 7pm. The classical portion of the program includes Mozarts fresh and bubbly flute quartet in D major and a quirky trio for flute, viola, and bass by Czech composer Erwin Schulhoff. Violinist Owen Dalby and bassist Evan Premo promise a virtuosic display on Edgar Meyers folk/classical hybrid duo he wrote for Joshua Bell and himself. The string players will break it down on three Appalachian style fiddle tunes composed and arranged by fiddler Marc OConnor. Soprano Mary Bonhag will sing three traditional Irish songs arranged for violin and soprano by Rebecca Clarke. Violinist Owen Dalby has been praised as dazzling, and is hailed for his gripping interpretations of music from across the stylistic spectrum. He is a co-founder of The Declassified, New York Citys trailblazing society of virtuoso chamber musicians, arts advocates, and educators. Also a founding member of The Declassified, violist Meena Bhasin has designed Carnegie Hall residencies in Mumbai and Abu Dhabi, collaborating with musicians and students from both cities. In her home town of New York City, Ms. Bhasin is a member of Lincoln Centers Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra and a frequent performer with the Orchestra of St. Lukes. She has also toured the US as a soloist with legendary rock band Jethro Tull. Karen Kevra has won attention as one of the countrys outstanding flutists through her distinctive warm and extroverted performances as a soloist and chamber musician. Her commitment to expanding the modern flute repertoire includes the premier

The Hunter

here is a television ad campaign by the World Wildlife Fund to protect animals from human poachers. And I say: good for the WWF. Someone needs to speak for the innocent animals that are being cruelly slaughtered. The baby seals. The uffy bunnies. But, wait! The World Wildlife Fund is not protecting those animals at all. The WWF is asking for you to give them your hard earned money in order to protect tigers and polar bears. Tigers and bears? Oh, why? I cant think of a charity that is more arrogant and absurd. Its arrogant because the WWF and its donors are overprivileged Westerners living in safe suburbs who think they have any right to enforce our values on people half-way around the world. If Malaysia passed a law that forbade Americans from hunting deer, we would rightly ignore the law. And Fox News would rightly badmouth Malaysians for having the audacity to tell us what to do. The WWF is absurd because it is effectively telling people that they are not allowed to protect their families. My parents live in Florida. Florida still has alligators. If an

alligator hurt my parents, I would absolutely want revenge. If I could, I would track down the alligator that did it and kill him. Then Id pay somebody to make boots out of its skin and Id wear those boots to go out hunting for its alligator children. And I wouldnt care at all what the WWF thought about it. I dont actually have a clue of how to catch a wild animal. Maybe I could enlist the aid of The Hunter. Willem Dafoe plays Martin David: an American hunter who is sent by a shady businessman to the edge of the civilized world to track down the elusive Tasmanian Tiger. Unsurprisingly, the macho local Australians do not appreciate the gun-toting intruder and they make it clear that Martin is not wanted. A normal person would take the hint and get the heck out of there. But because it is a movie and because the character is played by Willem Dafoe, Martin ignores the risks and continues his ill-fated hunt. The Hunter is an intriguing, slow-burning thriller. It is worth watching if only for the many shots of the beautiful, rugged Tasmanian landscape. The point of this column isnt that Im defending Tiger poachers or promoting gator-cide. My point is that when someone is hunting a murderous animal, he may have a good reason. And its certainly none of our business what people in faraway lands do to the animals living in their backyards.

Barre Montpelier Area

Mini Storage Warehouse
months ago, one of my readers had three older rugs she wished to sell. She relied on a neighbor, who claimed to be an expert. The so-called expert valued the rugs at $150 each. She sold them for that amount and later found an insurance appraisal done by her husband in 1955. She was stunned to discover the appraisal documented that her rugs were from the late 19th century and worth about $7,000 each. *** Q: I have a tin pitcher that has been in my family for generations. Can you tell me how much it is worth? -- Clela, Lahmansville, W.Va. A: I showed the photo you sent me to three dealers. They seem to agree it would retail for about $20. *** Q: I have a deed for 1 square inch of land in the Klondike. Any value? -- Patti, Palmetto, Fla. A: Only as a curiosity. During the 1950s and 60s, square inches of land were sold by various companies and were a fad, much like the pet rocks that followed. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Old Table
Q: Enclosed is a picture of an old table that has bins and a pullout cutting board. Can you tell me its age? -- Catherine, Venice Center, N.Y. A: You have the bottom half of a Hoosier Cabinet, a style of cupboard that was common in many kitchens during the early years of the past century. The value of this piece is less since it is not complete. *** Q: I have several pieces of glass and would like to sell them. Can you help me with this? -- Christina, Webster, Mass. A: I examined the list of items you included in your letter, and I think you should hire a good certified appraiser to determine current values. There are two types of appraisals, verbal and written. Written appraisals are generally more expensive and often necessary for insurance purposes. To find an appraiser in your area, contact The American Society of Appraisers, P.O. Box 17265, Washington, DC 20071; or The International Society of Appraisers, 1131 SW 7th Street, Suite 105, Renton, WA 98005. You might be tempted to rely on a neighbor or collector.

Q: Some time ago, you mentioned that a clogged sink can be cleared using a By Samantha plumbers snake. Where Mazzotta can I find one, and how do I use it? -- Jerrold in West Virginia A: A plumbers snake is a tool that has a flexible steel cable extending from a spool and handcrank assembly, with a wire snarl on the far end. Youll sometimes see it referred to as a cable auger, but if you refer to it as the former, experienced people will understand. It can be purchased at any home-improvement store for around $25. The salesperson might ask what youre using the tool for. There are longer cables, up to 100 feet, as well as versions like closet augers (which are specifically for toilet clogs) and power augers (which are rented by the day, and something I wouldnt recommend for a first-timer or a small clog). To clear a sink clog, you should try a couple of other tricks before shelling out money for the plumbers snake. First try a plunger, making sure the bell completely covers the drain and touches the sink surface in order to create a vacuum. Plunge up and down about 15 times. If the sink drains, run hot water through the pipe to clear the remaining clog. If plunging doesnt work, try to clear the clog

through the sink trap (at the bottom of the U-shaped drain pipe under the sink). Put a bucket under the trap and put on rubber gloves. Using an adjustable pipe wrench, unscrew the plug at the bottom of the trap. Water and gunk will start draining immediately, but that doesnt mean the clog is cleared. Use a wire coat hanger or something similar to probe the pipe via the trap, and try to pull out any additional material. Then screw the plug back in and turn on hot water. If the clog still isnt cleared, now its time to try to plumbers snake. Unscrew the plug at the bottom of the trap again and thread the end of the snake cable into the pipe, toward the wall, as far as it will go. To navigate pipe bends, turn the handle to adjust the cable end. Once the cable is extended as far as it will go, or wont go in any farther, slowly wind it back out. Clog material that the snake pushed through will likely be tangled up in the wire snarl at the front of the cable. Be sure to clean this off before storing the tool. Now, close up the drain plug, turn on the hot water, and let it run for a couple of minutes to clear out the rest of the clog. If this still doesnt do the trick, contact a professional plumber. HOME TIP: A drain filter or screen is one of the most cost-effective tools to combat pipe clogs.

Housetraining 101
DEAR PAWS CORNER: How do you housetrain a dog? Does it take a long time? -Soon-To-Be Dog Mom in Illinois DEAR EXPECTING: Housetraining a dog -- basically, getting a dog to eliminate outside rather than whatever spot is convenient in the house -- can take anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks. The length of time depends on several factors, including a dogs age, intelligence and your commitment to its training time. Consistency is the key, so place that word at the top of your to-do list before bringing home your new dog. It will make life easier for you and your dog in so many areas down the road. Housetraining itself is pretty basic. Twice a day, morning and evening (more often for puppies), take your dog outside, on a leash, to a spot well away from the house (or the neighbors house). If youre in a city environment, scout out trees and sidewalk areas. Let your dog explore the spot while you gently encourage it to go. There are a number of command words you can use to signal that its to eliminate. I use the truly original statement, Go poop. Your dog will not understand you immediately, nor will it go on command. But most dogs will pee during the walk and may defecate. (Please pick up the poop using a scooper bag.) Accidents will occur during housetraining, particularly with puppies. Do not scold or rub the dogs nose in it. Try and catch it as soon as possible after it eliminates in the house, say No, and immediately put it on the leash and head outside to the selected go spot. Then bring the dog back in, clean up and try again at the next scheduled time. Again, Ive had dogs figure out the routine in a single day. Others have taken longer. Be patient and consistent, and stick to the schedule even after your dog has mastered the art of the go.

By JoAnn Derson Heres a fun afternoon of play just waiting to happen: Check with your local grocery store or big-box store to see if it has uncrushed cardboard boxes. Get several to create a cardboard city in your living room or childs bedroom. They can be decorated to look like anything, or cut, trimmed and taped into most any shape. Kids even like to stock them with pillows and blankets for a cozy sleepover. When youre done, break them down and recycle until the next adventure. -- J.J. in Florida Sources who know say that if you drop a clean glass marble in your tea kettle, it will prevent it from scaling. Like to use paper towels to dry your clean hands? Set them aside to dry instead of just throwing them out, then you can use them with glass cleaner or other solutions. Use a shower curtain cut or folded in half under babys high chair to make floor cleanup easier. Air-popped popcorn is healthier for you. If you have an air popper, youll also have a jar of popcorn kernels. Keep them in the refrigerator or even the freezer. You can use them straight from the fridge, and the bonus is that youll have fewer unpopped kernels and bigger, fluffier popcorn. -E.M. in Wisconsin Stuck at school with a sticky zipper? Just rub it with a pencil lead and zip back and forth a few times. It totally works. -W.K., a middle-school student in Georgia Send your tips to Now Heres a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Dont you owe it to yourself to check New England Home Crafters out! Its your money!

Date: Friday, February 1, 2013 Dear Mary,

I don't want another moment to go by without telling you about the WONDERFUL experience I have had with you and all of NEW ENGLAND HOME CRAFTERS. When I started thinking about Modular Homes I visited many different Home Building Companies but something clicked when I visited your showcase in Lyndonville. Not only did I see a Model Home that I liked I also felt that I could work with you better. AND you told me I could have what I wanted! Each step along the way was a positive one. Everyone stepped up to the plate and gave us excellent service and excellent products. Mark even gave me a call back on Christmas Eve!! The quality of both the building Materials and Construction is more than I could have ever imagined. I am SOOOOOO LUCKY that I bagged out of that Mother's Day Gathering and instead headed up to Lyndonville for one last try at a Modular Home Company. I have friends that have only given me nightmare stories of their experiences not me mine was more a DREAM COME TRUE. Thank you so much. You do good work! Gretchen D.-Norwich, VT

Roger Hill of Weathering Heights and Radio Vermont Last Weeks Vermont WeatherTwo Part Storm System brought Gentle Snows The Ski and Snow Mobile Industries not to mention Crosscountry Ski resorts and their customers were besides themselves as some decent snowfall brought up snow depths across the state back to more traditional winter conditions by the weekend. Of course all of the action occurred in conjunction with a historic Noreaster that broke snowfall records at Portland Maine and rivaled the Blizzards of 1978 and 2005 in Boston. Hurricane force wind accompanied the snowfall which produced thunder snows in parts of coastal southern New England. Snow depths across Vermont by Monday morning ranged from 53 inches atop Mount Mansfield, to 20 at Jay Peak base lodge, with most low elevation areas seeing somewhere from a half foot to a foot. The first part of the storm came in early Friday with a extreme fluff factor in some cases the snow to liquid ratios were phenomenal 35:1 illustrating how dry that was. However interestingly, the Noreaster precipitation shield brought snow to liquid ratios of around 15:1 and was much heavier. This can sometimes be problematic on some slopes for avalanches in the mountainous terrain such as Tuckermans Ravine in the White Mountains of NH. The most storm total snowfall in Vermont was around 17 inches near Marlboro. Most in one 24 hour period was in Bethel at just over a foot falling. Vermont Weather Stats from Last Week ending Monday the 28th Highest temperature 38 degrees in Brattleboro Wednesday afternoon the 7th Lowest temperature: -23 degrees in Irasburg Sunday morning the 10th Heaviest melted precipitation: 0.89 Ludlow ending Saturday morning the 9th Most Snowfall: 12.5 at Bethel ending Saturday morning the 9th Most snow on the ground: 55 Mount Mansfield at the stake Saturday afternoon the 9th Global Temperature Facts For Last Week Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 111 degrees F Birdsville (Australia) Last weeks coldest temperature was minus 69 degrees Ojmjakon Siberia (Russia) Atmospheric CO2 Continues To Change No update available at press time. January 27th thru February 2nd CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory were 395.68 and going up. This was compared to 393.11ppm last January 2012 for the same period. Thats up 2.5 parts per million from one year ago which was a significant jump. Good News -- U.S. Greenhouse Emissions Drop to 20-Year Low Carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. fell to their lowest levels since 1994 last year, with greenhouse gas emissions from the countrys power plants seeing a 4.6 percent drop for 2012 alone.

Overall CO2 emissions fell by 13 percent over the past five years as new energy-saving technologies were adopted, including a switch from coal to wind, solar and cleaner-burning natural gas. Geothermal and hydroelectric sources also helped reduce air pollution. But America got 31 percent of its energy from natural gas, which came about due to an explosive use of fracking. Environmental organizations say the shattering of the bedrock to help in the extraction of natural gas has come with its own cost to the environment. Overall energy use in the U.S. has fallen 6.4 percent since 2007. This has mainly been due to more efficient heating and cooling systems and better fuel economy in vehicles. Americas improvement in greenhouse gas emissions is offset by the burst in air pollution being generated in developing countries such as China. Canadian Doctors Focus on Climate Change Scientists began talking seriously about some dangers of climate change more than 30 years ago rising seas, changing weather patterns, more rain in rainy places and more drought in dry places, and more. But the risks that lie outside their areas of expertise have taken longer to draw attention especially in the area of human health. That has started to change, however, as medical professionals have begun to understand how a changing climate could lead to all sorts public health problems increased mortality as heat waves become more intense and more common; a rising incidence of allergies; the spread of infectious diseases into new areas; and more. The latest evidence of this growing awareness: an editorial in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that lays out the facts and urges doctors to become more vocal in demanding action against climate change. The editorial, titled Physicans roles on the front line of climate change, isnt the first of its kind. The American Medical Association published its own version in 2011, and in 2009 the British Medical Journal called climate change the biggest global health threat of the 21st century. It also points out what may not yet be clear to physicians: that theyll be the first responders to this growing health crisis. Physicians will be among the front-line responders to the dire effects of climate change, from malnutrition, to increases in vector-borne disease, to respiratory illness and the aftermath of traumatic weather events. Weather Trends AheadModerate TempsPotential Weekend Storm Moderate temperatures levels were indicated today (Wednesday) and into the weekend, before falling some. Temperature levels may reach at or few degrees above the freezing mark by day, and around 20 at night. After some minor snowfalls earlier in the week and up and down temperatures, overall this trend should continue with the driest weather days today, Wednesday and again Thursday. Well likely see a lead weather system bring some snow showers back for Friday. Beyond at press time it far too early to nail down details. However there is certainly some excitement about a possible Noreaster for northern New England for the weekend. The European Ensemble model which is about as accurate as mid range forecasting modeling gets was hinting at the development of a coastal low in the Gulf of Maine. With many teleconnection parameters coming into line (Negative versions of the Arctic and Negative North Atlantic Oscillations) and the Madden Julian Oscillation, in stormy cold phase 8 we might be seeing another major snowfall around our region. This one might add to the woes in areas already dumped on last Friday-Saturday. Honestly, there would be nowhere to put their piled up snows, and it could devastating. For us in Vermont we could likely handle it and then some.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) A new business venture seems to offer everything youve been looking for. But be careful that that rosy picture doesnt betray traces of red ink under the surface.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Taking charge is what you like to do, and since you do it so well, expect to be asked to lead a special group. This could open an exciting new vista for you. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An important matter might wind up being entrusted to you for handling. The responsibility is heavy, but youll have support from people able and eager to help. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A spouse or partner might make an important, even lifechanging, suggestion. Consider it carefully. It could hold some of the answers youve both been looking for. BORN THIS WEEK: You always try to do the right thing, and for the right reasons. No wonder people have come to depend on you.
