Gov. Peter Shumlin kicked off Vermonts 2013 maple sugar season last week, officially tapping a maple tree on the State House lawn and highlighting the industrys advances and importance to the states economy. Vermont leads the U.S. in maple production. Ten years ago, we had about 1 million taps in Vermont, and we expect three times that many in 2013, the Governor said, noting that the number of maple producers has also climbed sharply in that time, from about 2,000 in 2002 to about 3,000 today. Sugaring is not only a long-standing part of Vermonts heritage, but its also a vital component of the states modern-day economy. Agriculture Secretary Chuck Ross agreed, adding, Vermont maple is internationally known for exceptional quality, and is in high demand. The maple industry plays a huge role in maintaining a vital, thriving working landscape in our state. More than 1 million gallons were produced in 2011, but warmer weather led to slightly lower production last year -- about 750,000 gallons. But new innovations have helped Vermont stay on the forefront of production. Among those:

Gov. Shumlin Kicks off 2013 Maple Sugar Season

n n n

- Smaller taps that are better for tree health without sacrificing production. - Reverse osmosis, which allows water to be extracted from sap, resulting in higher sugar concentrations and less boiling time. It also saves fuel. - Check valve spouts, which were developed by Dr. Tim Perkins of the UVM Proctor Maple Research Center, allowing less contamination of the taphole and increased production of sap. - More efficient evaporators to speed boiling times and create a better finished product. Advances in technology have made production more efficient and significantly cut sugar makers energy use, increasing quality and providing a measure of resilience against weather patterns and climate change, said Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association Executive Director, Matt Gordon. What makes maple syrup great, though, is that even with advances in technology, it is still the same, pure product that has been made for centuries. These advances will ensure Vermonts maple industry remains a leader in production techniques and quality, and will help provide resilience to an industry which is particularly susceptible to weather patterns and climate change.

Plowing Old Ground: Vermonts Organic Farming Pioneers is a new exhibit at the Vermont History Museum. The exhibition will open on Saturday, March 16 with a reception and a short talk by the exhibits creators, Susan Harlow and John Nopper. The event will be held at the museum at 109 State Street in Montpelier from 2:30 to 4:30pm. Two years ago, agricultural writer Susan Harlow and farmer/photographer John Nopper decided to document the stories of Vermonts pioneer organic farmers. The result is a stunning exhibit of black and white photographs with narratives collected from oral history interviews. Harlow wrote, Ive conducted about 40 hours of interviews, most of them around farm kitchen tables, and feel like I have many more to go before the project is finished. These pioneers started farming in the 1970s and 1980s, some as members of communes, others as new arrivals to the state looking to get back to the land. A few were homegrown Vermonters. They wanted to farm organically for many reasons: they were farming conven-

tionally but saw its drawbacks; they believed in organic as a philosophy; they saw the future of agriculture in organics. Six working farms and their farmers are highlighted including Jack and Anne Lazor of Butterworks Farm in Westfield; Paul Harlow of Harlow Farm, Westminster; Jake and Liz Guest of Killdeer Farm, Norwich; Joey Klein of Littlewood Farm in Plainfield; Bruce Kaufman from Riverside Farm, Hardwick; and Vermonts first officially certified organic farmer Howard Prussack of High Meadows Farm in Putney. Images and comments by writer and organic farming advocate, Samuel Kaymen will also be included. According to John Nopper, This project is an evolving story; it is somewhat about the history of organic farming in Vermont, but more importantly about the people who were not satisfied with things as they were, but who saw things as they could be. Visit the VHSs Vermont History Museum, Tuesday-Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

Norwich University continues the Spring 2013 Todd Lecture Series with The New Eco-Activism, a presentation by awardwinning designer, Neri Oxman, on Wednesday, March 6, at 6pm in Dole Auditorium. Hosted by the School of Architecture and Art, Oxman will discuss her work, which has been described as transcending the boundaries between art, science and environmentalism. Oxman is the Sony Corporation Career Development Professor and Research Group Director at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab, where she directs the Mediated Matter research group. Her group explores how digital design, engineering, material science, artistic forms, and ecology can combine to radically transform the design and construction of everyday objects, buildings, and systems. Oxmans goal is to enhance the relationship between the built and the natural environment by employing design principles inspired by nature and implementing them in the invention of digital design technologies. Its a fantastic model for contemporary problem solving: she is practicing a mode of design that does not shy away from any good source whether biological, mineral, technical or tactile. said Aron Temkin, dean of the School of Architecture and Art. Its very easy to look at her work and be enticed by the incredibly rich colors and textures, but once you understand that these projects are as precisely considered and resolved as they are intricate and beautiful, you almost have to pause for breath. A graduate of the AA School of Architecture, and previously a medical scholar at the Hebrew University and the Technion Institute of Technology, Oxman has won numerous awards, including the inaugural Earth Award. The boundary-defying appeal of her work has garnered attention in magazines: Shes one of Esquires Best and Brightest, was named to ICONs list of the top 20 most influential architects to shape our future (2009), and was selected as one of the 100 most creative people by Fast Company (2009). In 2008, she was named Revolutionary Mind by SEED Magazine. The Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of US Army retired Maj. Gen. and Norwich President Emeritus W. Russell Todd, 50, and his wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the University. With this series, Norwich reaches out to bring important, significant lecturers to campus. All events are free and open to the public. For more information email toddlectureseries@norwich.edu or call (802)485-2633.

The teams were from Central VT Medical Center, the Barre and Montpelier Kiwanis Clubs, the Key Club at Spaulding High School, Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Merchants Bank, Northfield Savings Bank, Peoples United Bank, and SB Electronics, Inc. Major sponsors of the event were SB Electronics, Inc. and Luckyday Co., LLC, along with several other lane sponsors. Because this was a fundraiser, bowlers were challenged to acquire personal sponsorships and vied for the distinction of being the top individual fundraiser as well as the top team in raising money. Tim Barre and his Northfield Savings Bank Hopeful Bowlers took these honors. The second highest team was SB Electronics. Todd Reichenberger made the overall most strikes for the guys, winning him a gift certificate from the Steak House, while Donna Gagnon made the most strikes of the girls, for a gift basket from Bath & Body Works. The overall least strikes were made by Tony Matz and Amanda Shute, winning them an AmsOil gift basket and VT Bobbin gift certificate respectively.

Now in its eighth year in Vermont, Poetry Out Loud has inspired hundreds of thousands of American high school students to discover and know by heart classic and contemporary poetry.

The Teens Meeting of the Minds We had two Meetings of the Minds at the Jaquith, one in January and one in February, focused on what the Jaquith can offer teens in the community. Based on the results of the two meetings, a grant was written and submitted to the Winnie Bell Fund, seeking funding to provide programs for teens and to enhance the library collection by purchasing more teen and young adult books, audio books, graphic novels, magazines, and movies. The teens developed a list of materials and program ideas but we could use more input. Feel free to e-mail your suggestions to: jaquithpubliclibrary@gmail.com. Keep your eyes and ears open for future announcements about the grant results and the teen offerings at the Jaquith. Thank you to Positive Pie in Plainfield for donating the pizza at our February meeting. Free Museum and State Park Passes for Loan Did you know the Jaquith has free state park and museum passes for three day loans? The places you can visit include: ECHO Museum, Vermont Historical Museum, Billings Farm and Museum, Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms Museum, Vermont State Parks, Vermont Historical sites, and Ben and Jerrys. You can call ahead to reserve the pass. Judy Sargent & Gary Leach Celebrated for their Service On February 16th we had a luncheon to celebrate the hard work of our many volunteers and to honor Library Trustees Judy Sargent and Gary Leach, who are retiring from the Jaquith Library Board in March. Judy and Gary received gift certificates from Bear Pond Books and we all shared a delicious poppy seed cake from Rainbow Sweets Bakery. Thank you to Viiu Niiler and Chet Cole for creating the beautiful sun catchers we gave as gifts to all of the library volunteers. Thank you also to Red Hen Bakery for the lovely loaves of bread we served, to Liza, Pam and Susan for making the three different delicious soups, and to Winnie for her delicious cookies.

Kellogg-Hubbard Library News

On Wednesday, March 6 at 7pm, join us for Victorias Secrets. Middlebury College professor Antonia Losano explains how the Victorian era, considered the age of the realist novel and staid decorum, also had its guilty pleasures: mysteries, ghost stories, science fiction, imperialist adventure tales, and radical fantasies of gender confusion. A Vermont Humanities Council program. Sponsor: Bear Pond Books / Rivendell Books. The Kellogg-Hubbard presents two films honoring Womens History Month. On Thursday, March 7 at 7pm, Makers: Women Who Make America. Makers is a landmark digital and broadcast initiative from AOL and PBS, showcasing compelling stories from women of today and tomorrow. Makers recounts the seminal events of the organized womens movement from the publication of The Feminine Mystique in 1963 to the Anita Hill vs. Clarence Thomas hearings in 1991. But it also goes further, telling the surprising and unknown stories of women who broke down barriers in their chosen fields, from the coal mines of West Virginia to the boardrooms of Madison Avenue. Followed by a panel discussion featuring representatives from the Vermont Historical Society. Sponsored by VPT. On Wednesday, March 13 at 7pm, Community Cinema Film Series presents Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Super Heroines, tracing the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect societys anxieties about womens liberation. Followed by a panel discussion. Sponsored by VPT. On Wednesday, March 20 at 7pm, Sarah Gillen joins us for our Local Author Series. She will read from and sign copies of her book, From Hurt to Joy: How to Transform Self-Defeating Patterns with Energy Dynamics.

uman beings are basically good and decent. We are born with an internal moral compass that leads us to behave properly and treat our fellow man with respect. Just kidding. It is clear from my reading of history that people are not driven by a moral compass. We follow orders. What we consider right and wrong was taught to us as children. And what we consider wrong hardly matters when we are being ordered to commit evil acts. War wouldnt be possible if this were not true. When a platoon is ordered to attack, the soldiers attack. A soldier doesnt stand up and say: Whoa! Hold on, Lieutenant: I dont know if you are aware of this, but your order might force us to break the 6th Commandment. So of course I am going to have to disobey you. We arent rebels by nature. History proves that people are willing to


commit unforgivably despicable acts in the name of following orders. The movie Compliance explores this ugly truth about humanity. The film begins on a normal day at an Ohio fast food restaurant called Chickwich. The phone rings. Its a man claiming to be Officer Daniels from the local police department. He informs Sandra - the manager on duty - that the girl working the front desk - Becki stole some cash out of a customers purse. When Officer Daniels tells Sandra to drag Becki into the back room for interrogation, Sandra gladly complies. When he tells her to rifle through the teens purse looking for the supposed stolen cash, Sandra gladly complies. When the officer tells the manager to perform a rigorous strip search, Sandra balks. The cop calmly explains that they have video evidence that implicates Becki in this and other crimes. And if he is wrong and it turns out the girl is innocent, he will take the heat for what happens. Thats all Sandra needs to hear. Coffee Club

March 6, 2013 page 8 The WORLD

By TOM HERZIG ay Shatney and Janet Steward, who raise Scotch Highland cattle for breeding and grass-fed beef in Plainfield and Greensboro Bend, recently returned home from the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO with, as is their custom, some prestigious national awards. The National Western Stock Show is the World Series of cattle shows. Over the years, Ray and Janet have landed just about every Highland prize awarded. Their herd is the oldest closed herd in the USA. Some of its members have appeared on WCAX TV-3 and become local celebrities. This year, the Produce of Dam competition was won by Shat Acres Cinnamon Raisin upon the judging of her progeny Crimson and Crimsons sister Raisin Brandy. Crimson and her twin sister Clover have been a hit ever since they were brought to the Champlain Valley Fair as calves in 2011 as Twin-1 and Twin-2 and were named in a childrens contest. The same year, the Cinnamon Raisin-Crimson-Clover combo was named the National Western Stock Shows Grand Champion Cow/Calf. The Denver show is a double-points event, Steward explained. It appears Shat Acres Raisin Brandy now has a good chance of being named the Role of Excellence Senior Heifer at the American Highland Cattle Association National Convention in June. Rays grandchildren Lillie, 16 and Nate 12, the fourth generation of Shatneys to be involved with the herd, participated in the Denver competition. Lillie, who had never shown before, received a 3rd-place Showmanship award. Distinctive in appearance with their shaggy coats, muppet-like forelocks and wide sweeping horns, Highlanders are very adaptable to climate. Their heritage dates back centuries to the rugged terrain and harsh winters of Scotland. It is thought that their ancestors may have arrived from Scandinavia on Viking ships. They definitely have a pre-historic quality about them, Steward said. They were introduced to the USA in the early 1900s and are now raised from Alaska to Florida and throughout Canada. Although fiercely maternal as Steward describes, Highlands are docile and fond of attention, especially when it comes to grooming. They love to be brushed and combed, she said. They are also intelligent and have strong memories. Cinnamon Bear, a five-time Grand Champion Bull, weighing in at over a ton, nose ring and all, is constrained by a single strand of electric fence after a jolt hes never forgotten. I dont know if the ring was a factor at the time, but now Bear wont try to cross the fence with a cow in heat standing on the other side, even if the fence is down, Steward said. Highlands are efficient browsers, not fussy feeders. Grass-fed is a broad term for them. Theyll clean up brush, scrub raspberries, whatever, Shatney said. Weve pastured them on land that the owner was considering having to bushog. Now you can mow it with a lawnmower. Shatney and Steward offer breeding stock for sale under the Shat Acres brand. They also market Greenfield Highland grass-fed beef in local outlets, including Hunger Mountain Co-op, the Capital City Farmers Market, Angelenos, Kismet, Plainfield Co-op, Capitol Grounds and Vermont Fresh Network. Highlands are slower to breed than most cattle 24 to 30 months rather than 15-18 months for Angus or Herefords. They are also slower growing and longer to finish (fatten fully for slaughter). Greenfield Highland beef is grass-fed and grass finished meaning that the cattle are not put on grain to attain maximum weight. The time factors can be an economic hindrance on the one hand, but in Stewards view and those of her dedicated repeat customers, they are outweighed by the quality of the final product. These animals are meant to be ruminants, she said. Theyre

Poulos Insurance says...

If you chose to rely on your own auto insurance policy to provide coverage when you rent a car, a call to your Agent rst is very important. All auto insurance policies are not created equal and coverage and claims practices vary greatly. The rental car agreements are all written in their favor and the potential out of pocket costs from assessments etc. could be enormous. To be protected as best you can, consider purchasing their collision damage waiver (CDW) and purchase their liability coverage as well. Although these fees are generally considered outrageous, most consumers should consider purchasing these waivers for short-term rentals.

It was wonderful. The staff - all of them - were helpful and so nice. They really rode out the storm with us. They were great. It was great. While Landon Grant Simard, just a day old, was busy hamming for the camera, his parents Amanda and Tim were simply beaming with pride...and relief! Their rst born arrived on Wednesday, February 27 and weighed 7lb/2oz and was 21 inches long. He looks just like his happy daddy. All were ready to go home to Waterbury. We wish them all the best and fully expect they will have lots of laughter and joy in their lives. Good start Landon! YAY!

to those favoring a more acidic environment. As the bio-chemistry of the digestive system is altered, so is the affected tissue/meat. Research indicates that the tissue changes result in a substantial decrease in the ratio of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6. Omega 3 has been the subject of considerable media attention, having been found to help reduce the incidence of heart disease, resist increased blood pressure and, in recent Canadian research, linked to breast cancer prevention. Although Omega-6 fatty acid is an essential nutrient, the National Institute of Health has published findings that an imbalanced ratio (too much Omega-6) promotes cardiovascular disease and auto-immune diseases rather than suppress them. Dr. Bryon Wiegand of the University of Missouri Animal Sciences Division, is currently studying the unique attributes of Highland beef on behalf of the American Highland Cattle Association. Greenfield Highland beef is not sold as organically grown. You can finish cattle with organic grain, but we maintain a complete grass/forage/hay regimen, Steward said. When buying hay, its very hard to guarantee it was organically grown. Ray and Janet are experimenting with crossbreeding Highlands with Shorthorns, an ancient English breed that yields a higher than average marbling, to decrease the time needed to finish animals for market. Kelly Foster, Rays daughter, works with the cattle daily and gets the young calves used to being handled by humans, which allows them to be sold as breeding stock. The minute Kelly appears at the barn she is surrounded by thirty-two of last years calves - all wanting to be petted and combed at the same time. With over forty new calves due in the next two months, Shat Acres is going to be a busy place. Greenfield Highland Beef/Shat Acres Farm can be contacted at 802-454-7384.

So begins an uncomfortable hour where Becki is essentially kidnapped, shamed, and humiliated by her co-workers. All because of the orders given by a voice on a phone. Compliance is a disturbing lm. Its disturbing because it is based on a true story. Actually, it is inspired by 70 known cases of criminal incidents caused by a prank caller claiming to be a Police Ofcer. And its doubly disturbing because the only person in the movie who never questions the demands of the fake cop is Becki. Even though she knows that shes innocent, Becki willingly submits to everything Ofcer Daniels demands due to her respect for authority and fear of prison. Compliance reminds us that all of the rights we think we have mean nothing if a local authority gure wants to take them away from us. This is an ugly truth about life, but there isnt much we can do about it. Because we follow orders. And we arent rebels by nature.

Granite City Grocery Get in on the Ground Floor

Editor: As part of Barres downtown revitalization plans, many agree theres a need for a downtown grocery store. After several large chain stores were invited but declined to become involved, a group of community-minded folks have begun planning for a downtownbased grocery cooperative called Granite City Grocery. The plan, thus far, calls for a store that would offer local and organic foods along with everyday items, a bulk section, etc. Being a cooperative, this store will be owned by its members.

Locals are encouraged to get involved. As pledged members, we are asked to commit $200.00 per household; we can help make decisions about what the store offers and how it operates. This amount will help fund start-up of the store as well as assure your claim to lifetime member-ownership. You make the pledge now but do not pay until the cooperative has pledges from 600 future members - we passed the 400 member mark just recently! There are a variety of payment plans for making good on the pledge. Visit their website for further details and more information about the store: www.granitecitygrocery.coop. You can also call Emily Kaminsky, Chair of Granite City Grocery, at 802-279-7518. If you get excited about being at the beginning of new project and are interested in joining the commitment to build a stronger Barre, please consider becoming a member. Pledge the $200.00 start-up/member fee; join a committee; talk with your neighbors about how nice it will be to have a grocery store/cooperative right downtown. Terri Jordan Barre Town

By Cathy Systo, AAMS ow that tax season is here, and the debate over tax rates has been resolved (at least for now), you can focus on your tax return, which is due on April 15. As you work on your return, you may see some areas in which youd like to make some changes for 2013 and beyond and one of these areas may be your investments. Specifically, can you find ways to become a more tax-smart investor?a You may be able to benefit from taking the following steps: Max out on your IRA. Depending on your income level, you may be able to deduct some or all of your contributions to a traditional IRA. And your earnings can grow on a tax-deferred basis.* (Roth IRA contributions are not deductible, but your earnings and eventual distributions will be tax-free, provided you meet certain conditions.) You can contribute to your IRA for 2012 right up until the tax-filing deadline on April 15. And for 2013, the annual IRA contribution limit has increased, from $5,000 to $5,500 (or $6,500, if youre 50 or older). Boost your 401(k) contributions. You generally contribute pretax dollars to your 401(k), so the more you put in, the lower your taxable income. (Depending on your employer, you may even be able to make Roth contributions to your 401(k) plan.) So, every time your salary goes up, you may want to consider increasing your 401(k) contributions. For 2013, you can put in up to $17,500 to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan, such as a 457(b) or 403(b). If youre 50 or older, you can add another $5,500 on top of the contribution limit. Consider tax-advantaged investments. If you can afford to put money away even after youve reached the limits on your IRA and

Follow Tax-smart Investment Moves

your 401(k), you might want to consider other tax-advantaged investments. For example, you may be able to benefit from investing in municipal bonds, which provide interest payments that are free of federal taxes, and, in some cases, free of state and local taxes, too. (Some municipal bonds may be subject to the alternative minimum tax.) Another investment possibility is a fixed annuity, which offers tax-deferred earnings growth. Your financial and tax advisors can help you determine which, if any, tax-favored investments may be suitable for your individual needs. Avoid frequent buying and selling. Many people constantly buy and sell investments, hoping to boost their returns. Such frequent trading is usually ineffective, however and it can also be taxing. If you sell an investment that youve held for one year or less, you may have to pay the short-term capital gains rate, which is the same as your ordinary income tax rate. But when you sell an investment that youve held for more than one year, youll be assessed the more favorable long-term capital gains rate, which will be 15% or 20%, depending on your income level. So, as you can see, you have a real incentive to be a buy-and-hold investor. Generally speaking, taxes, by themselves, shouldnt drive your investment decisions. Instead, you should focus on an investments suitability for your risk tolerance and long-term goals. Work with your financial advisor and tax professional to see how you may be able to make progress toward your objectives and still keep control of your investment-related taxes. * Taxes are due upon withdrawal and withdrawals prior to age 59 may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty.

Senate Report:

n n n

he charter of Waitsfield was granted by the state of Vermont in February 1782 and was signed by our fist governor, Thomas Chittenden, during the time when Vermont was an independent republic. Nine years later, Vermont became the first state to join the union. The grant included the following public uses: a college within the state, a grammar school, the first settled minister, the support of the ministry and support of a school. Under the charter, each proprietor was required to cultivate five acres of land and build a house 18 feet square. Failure to do this would mean the land would revert back to the state. From 1782 to 1810, Waitsfield was located in Chittenden County. From 1810 to 1814, by act of the legislature, it was transferred to Jefferson County. In 1814, Vermonters were so upset by the adverse economic impact of President Jeffersons Embargo and the War of 1812 that the name was changed to Washington County. The town was named for Benjamin Wait, who at one time owned half the town of Waitsfield. Wait served in the French and Indian War under General Jeffery Amhurst. He was taken captive by the French and was later involved in the capture of Lewisburg. In 1767, he settled in Windsor, Vermont and in 1775, was with Ethan Allen when Fort Ticonderoga was captured. In 1782 he moved to Waitsfield when it received its charter from the state. He was in his 50s when he fought in the Revolutionary War and became a general. Wait played an active role in town affairs for over three decades. He lived until the age of 85 and is buried in the cemetery very close to where he built his first home. The home was bought by Ervin Joslin in 1900. In 1995, Waitsfield bought the home, which was subsequently restored. Eleven of the thirteen settlers of Waitsfield were minutemen at Lexington and Concord. In 1802, Waitsfield had 201 students in four school districts. Twenty years later, Waitsfield had 316 pupils in seven school districts. For the next several decades, the number of pupils declined because thousands of acres in Waitsfield were transferred to Northfield. In 1870, the legislature passed a law which enabled towns to abolish the school districts and bring all the schools under the supervision of the town. In 1871, Waitsfield vowed to adopt the town system of schools. Twenty years later, the Vermont General Assembly mandated the town system. During its history, Waitsfield was overrun by many floods. In July 1830, the rivers overflowed the whole valley, sweeping away every bridge in town and doing incalculable damage to the crops, and not a little to the mills. Floods of this nature occurred in July 1850, in July 1858, October 1869, and again in 1998 and 2011. The people of Waitsfield were very much opposed to the institution of slavery and opposed the admission of any state that supported slavery. On August 7, 1837, many residents of Waitsfield passed a resolution opposing the annexation of Texas from the United States and asking that the Congressional delegation oppose

by Senator Bill Doyle every attempt to annex Texas from the United States. The families in attendance on August 7 included members of the Bragg, Jones and Joslin families. In the early days, many freight trips were run from Waitsfield to Boston by horse teams. Some citizens wanted to build a railroad through the Mad River Valley, but the idea was turned down because of lack of finances. Waitsfield can be very proud of its military record through the years. Thirty-two soldiers from Waitsfield fought in the American Revolution. Many of them were friends of General Wait, who was the towns first selectman and the towns first representative to the Vermont Legislature. During the War of 1812, a local militia was organized, but the War of 1812 was not very popular in Waitsfield or in New England. During the Civil War, one tenth of the Waitsfield population served. During World War I, 39 residents served. In World War II, 91 served. In the Korean War, 28 served. And in Vietnam, 53 served. On August 9, 1989, Waitsfield celebrated its Bicentennial. Fletcher Joslin, who wrote a brief history of Waitsfield and whose family first settled in 1797, wrote: In August of 1989, Waitsfield celebrated its Bicentennial with a parade, and Senator Patrick Leahy as the speaker of the day, a restoration concert at the Round Barn, a commemoration service at the Federation Church, a house and garden tour and exhibit on the Towns history at the Valley Players theater, which drew over 600 visitors. New granite post and link fences were installed at the Irasville Cemetery and the Congregational Cemetery at the top of Mill Hill. Our characteristic New England Congregational Church (home of the Federated Church of Waitsfield) had restored the pew numbers, and a framed legend appears on the back wall of the sanctuary, showing the names of the original pew holders. A Bicentennial souvenir book was printed, and two new signs at the entrances to the Village were installed. As this area continues to grow, may we always be mindful of the proud tradition of our heritage and the quality of life we enjoy here. 1989 marked the memorable occasion of Waitsfields Bicentennial celebration. From one Grand Old Lady to another, Happy Birthday Vermont! Prominent leaders who were born in Waitsfield include: Henry Rice, Senator from Minnesota; Charles Waterman, Senator from Colorado; Edmond Rice, a railroad president, mayor of St. Paul and Congressman from Minnesota; Boswell Hoar, Congressman from Michigan, and Matt B. Jones, President of the New England Telegraph and Telephone Company. Senator Bill Doyle serves on the Senate Education Committee and Senate Economic Affairs Committee, and is the Senate Minority Leader. He teaches government history at Johnson State College. He can be reached at 186 Murray Road, Montpelier, VT 05602; e-mail wdoyle@leg.state.vt.us; or call 223-2851.

Thinking of You with Love


We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. All we have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts. A million times weve wanted you, a million times weve cried. If love could only have saved you, you never would have died. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didnt go alone. For part of us went with youthe day God called you Home.

Dress any top up by wearing a tank underneath. Colorful tanks add support to the mid-section while adding color below the hemline and around the neckline. Tanks come in all colors and you could choose colors that match those that arent so prominent in the top. Matching the less prominent color will create a nice contrast and will look great!

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could have some problems with doubters who dont share your enthusiasm for that new project youre supporting. But use the facts to win them over to your side. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Someone is impressed by how you managed to get your case to the right people, despite attempts to keep you on the outside looking in. Expect to hear more about this. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good for you -- your gift for seeing both sides of a dispute helps cool down a potentially explosive workplace situation. Some family-related tensions also begin to ease. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your determination to prove yourself is put to the test by midweek. Counting all the positive factors you have going for you will help you get over your self-doubt. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Several co-workers are still determined to resist coming over to your side. But dont let that stop you from presenting your proposal to the people who count. Stay the course. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might prefer to be taken on faith and not have to prove yourself. But the truth is, you need to offer more facts if you hope to persuade people to accept what you say. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family situation takes an unwelcome turn. While others might be looking around for answers, youll soon sort it all out logically, and the matter will be resolved. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Someone might try to create doubt about your reliability for his or her own agenda. But your reputation and your colleagues long-standing faith in you saves the day. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unexpected change of plans forces you to come up with an alternative by the end of the week. Look for colleagues to offer valuable suggestions. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nothing upsets the Goat as much as broken promises. But before you vent your anger, consider that this could ultimately prove to be a blessing in disguise. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old workplace problem you thought you had solved for good resurfaces. But this time, co-workers will take a more active role in helping you deal with it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful not to be misled by a negative reaction to one of your more important projects. If you believe in it, then it has worth and is, therefore, worth staying with. BORN THIS WEEK: Everyone appreciates your gift for finding beauty, even where it seems least likely to exist.

Success in public health means that people stay well. After a record 645 confirmed cases of whooping cough in Vermont during 2012, the number of cases is sharply down since mid-December when the Health Department reported epidemic numbers for the state. To date in 2013, a total of 42 cases have been confirmed, compared to 89 cases reported during the same period for 2012. On December 19, Vermont Tdap Vaccine Day, the Health Departments 12 district offices vaccinated 3,269 older children and adults against whooping cough. Since then hundreds more have been vaccinated at both the Health Department and health care provider offices. We cant declare the end of this outbreak, but were thankful that Vermonters responded as they did to slow the spread of illness, said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD Cases spiked at the end of the year and have steadily decreased since then. This is good proof that our vaccination and information efforts are working. Whooping cough (pertussis) is a highly infectious bacterial disease that is easily spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing, and can be most serious for babies too young to be fully vaccinated. For the best protection, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommends that everyone age 11 and older get a Tdap shot, and that women get the vaccine with each pregnancy. Babies need five doses of the vaccine called Dtap at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15 to 18 months, and 4 to 6 years. The vaccine is not perfect its effectiveness wanes over time, said Patsy Kelso, state epidemiologist for infectious disease. This makes it all the more important for everyone who can be vaccinated to do so, both to protect yourself and to protect those who

Whooping Cough Cases Down After Vaccination & Information Campaign

are too young or who have medical conditions that prevent them from being vaccinated. Health care providers, public health nurses, infectious disease epidemiologists, laboratory and public health preparedness staff have responded to the outbreak with a coordinated effort to inform, track, test, diagnose and treat cases, and encourage vaccination: Vaccines for Children and Adults: The Health Department provides vaccine at no cost to all provider practices in the state who are enrolled in federal and state vaccination programs for children and adults. The Health Departments district offices offer vaccine to those who do not have access to a health care provider. Disease Control: Public health nurses and epidemiologists investigate every reported case of pertussis. They gather information, identify additional cases or at-risk contacts, and consult with clinicians, patients and their families to provide information and guidance. Staff work closely with school nurses and child care providers on disease control strategies, and help write informational letters for parents. Clinical Guidance: The Health Department uses a Health Alert Network system to regularly communicate with health care providers about public health issues, and guidelines for diagnosis, laboratory testing and treatment. Throughout the year, the Health Department provided pertussis alerts and guidance for clinicians to follow when treating patients and their close contacts. Public Information: The Health Departments website at www. healthvermont.gov offers extensive information about whooping cough (pertussis) including audio and video of the pertussis cough and shares news and alerts via Twitter and Facebook at www.facebook.com/HealthVermont.

Two new studies have confirmed the benefit of a healthy diet and regular exercise on longevity. The first study revealed that those who followed a Mediterranean diet (one rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy oils and low in saturated fat) were 20% less likely to die of cancer, heart disease or any other causes over a five year period. The second study showed that those who engaged in moderate exercise for 30 minutes a day, most days of the week, had a 27% reduced risk of dying than the non-exercisers.

Though the wind might be howling outside as the specter of snowfall hangs over much of the country, now is actually the best time for parents to start thinking about summer camp. Since most summer camps typically ll their rosters long before the rst signs of spring, now is the time for parents to begin their search and nd the right t for their child. For parents new to the process, nding the right camp can be a difcult process. After all, no parent wants to see their child spend the bulk of their summer at a camp they dont like. When seeking a summer camp, parents should consider the following.

Get a Leg Up on Choosing a Summer Camp

they want. Camps that feature strict schedules might not be the best t. * Referrals: While summer camps arent necessarily as popular as they once were, chances are some of your childs classmates attend camp in the summer. Ask around and seek some advice on summer camps in your area. If youre lucky, you might even be able to send your child to a summer camp that some of his classmates also attend, which should make it easier for your child to

adapt to camp, especially if its a rst summer away from home.

If you cant nd any personal referrals, ask a camp for a list of references. These references shouldnt weight too heavily in your decision, as a camp director is obviously not going to give you names of parents whose children didnt have a good time. But the parents should be able to provide an accurate portrayal of how the camp conducts itself and how your child might fare should he attend that camp.

* Staff: The staff will play a crucial role in how much your child enjoys himself over the summer. A qualied staff is adept at making all children feel welcome, and will be experienced in making everyones time at camp as enjoyable as possible. When speaking with camps, ask about staff and how the staff is assembled. What education and training is required of the staff? Does the camp run criminal background checks on its staff? A good staff will be trained in rst aid and have some type of background in child counseling or education. Camps that simply hire kids looking for summer jobs should be avoided. The American Camp Association (ACA) recommends that 80 percent of a camps staff should be 18 or older. * The camps goals: Camps can differ greatly with what they hope to offer a child. Camps can focus on religion, sports, music, recreation, or a host of other interests. If youre looking for a sports camp, ask about afliations with any local colleges or professional teams. If its a musical camp, ask about what your child can expect to learn from staff.

Its also important to determine the general temperament of a camp. Does the camp foster a laid back or more competitive environment? This can be a big help in choosing the right camp for your child. For example, a child who isnt very competitive likely will not enjoy a camp where competition is heavily emphasized, whereas a child who is competitive might not get much out of a camp that is more recreational. * The daily schedule: While some camps might be specialized, most parents send their children to recreational camps that they hope offer their kids a well-rounded experience. Ask to see the schedule from a typical day, and ask about how exible that schedule is. Will kids be able to choose from different activities each day, or is every day regimented? Remember, kids will be spending their summer vacations at camp, and for many kids camp is an opportunity to relax and spend some time doing what

The Northeast Disabled Athletic Association (NDAA) participates in a number of adaptive sports. Sled hockey is the fast, exciting, rough n tumble version of ice hockey played primarily by people with mobility disabilities. The game is essentially the same as traditional ice hockey. The major difference is every player sits on a sled with two hockey skate blades under the seat. In competitive games, hard checking, raised puck shooting, and penalty killing are as much a part of sled hockey as they are in stand-up hockey.

Get Ready to Reseed Bare Spots in Lawn

Q: I read a column of yours some months ago that said if you reseed bare patches of grass before the first winter frost, the seeds will By Samantha Mazzotta sprout in early spring. I did not get around to doing that. Is it still possible to reseed? -- Gladys in Knoxville, Tenn.

A: Yes, its very possible. In fact, with the wintertime pre-seeding method, the bare spots still usually need a bit more seed the following spring to completely fill them in. Try to match the new grass seed with the type of grass that makes up your lawn. (You may need to take a sample of the sod to a professional landscaper or garden center.) Also, note how much sun the bare patch gets. Youll want a seed that performs well in the available sunlight. Or, you can just pick up a sun-and-shade seed mixture. To reseed, clear the bare spot of debris and rake out loose or dead thatch. Use a pitchfork to puncture the soil, then spread the new seed according to package instructions. Be careful not to overseed, as that can lead to rot. Water the spot, but dont flood it. Tamp the soil to press the seeds in, then scatter straw or grass clippings on top to keep birds from eating all the seed. Another option is to completely re-sod a bare spot. If the spot is fairly large with a lot of underlying thatch buildup, dethatch the area so you have clear ground underneath. Purchase sod that matches the surrounding grass (this is where taking a

sod sample into the garden center comes in handy). Measure the height of the new sod against the depth of the dethatched bare spot. If the spot is too deep to ensure an even lawn, fill the bare spot with soil, tamped down firmly, until the difference is made up. Add a little more soil so that the new sod sits about a half-inch higher than the surrounding lawn; it will settle in the next few weeks. Lay the new sod pieces, packing them tightly together. Tamp them down lightly and poke a few holes with a pitchfork so the soil stays porous. Keep the new sod moist for the next two weeks so that the sod grows in well. In both cases, protect a newly seeded or sodded spot by marking it with stakes and string around the perimeter so that people stay off it while the lawn regrows. HOME TIP: Clear away old mulch around trees and shrubs and replace with fresh mulch each spring.

MARCH 2013
Last Weeks Vermont Weather Wet snow fell at healthy levels across the higher Green Mountains of central and southern Vermont mid week last week. The storm that produced the heavier wet snow did not provide very much at valley floor levels, with from about 3 to 6 that rather quickly melted and settled late last week. The net high station snowfalls Ludlow with 13.5 and 10 inches at Jay Peak illustrated this point. Strong gusty winds at the start of this storm due to a tightening pressure gradient was enough to cause power outages along western slopes of the southern and central Green Mountains. The eastern slopes experienced a few wet snow loading outages. This occurs when snow are wet and heavy and take down tree limbs. The weather Thursday warmed some with a high of 48 degrees at numerous locations. The low was 12 degrees atop Mount Mansfield last weekend. We had a predominantly cloudy and unsettled week from the same storm spinning away off the Northeast coast and the northwestern Atlantic. This same storm brought us our rather gloomy weather spinning in moisture all weekend long and did not relent in recent days. Meteorologically, this was a function of a large blocking high located over southern Greenland and into eastern Canada. This blocking ridge has created a semi-permanent trough of lower pressure with large ocean going storms just southeast and northeast of New England.

report said there have only been 21 days in 102 years where the average maximum temperature for the whole of Australia has exceeded 39 Celsius and eight of these happened in the summer just gone. The Climate Commission said it was highly likely that extreme hot weather would become even more frequent and severe in Australia, and around the globe, over the coming decades. Meteorological Winter Comes to an End Saturday The coldest 90 days of winter per climate data were almost here and gone. This will take place on Saturday as we enter Meteorological Spring. Astronomical spring technically hits with the Vernal Equinox (nearly equal days and equal nights). The Vernal Equinox this year will be March the 20th at 1:14 AM. Weather Trends AheadSome improvement It has been a generally gloomy last two weeks overall. I cant promise you well have perfectly sunny days, but the best two candidates appear to be on our horizon especially Friday and Saturday. On Wednesday though clouds were likely to predominate, we should see several breaks of sunshine both for Wednesday and Thursday. No big Storms were on the horizon excepting to our south on Wednesday, which by all accounts should stay well south of the region. Unfortunately, some clouds cover will roll in around the northern fringes of the this large ocean storms which should have fringe effect of strong coastal winds and clouds and possible flurries/ snow for the southern New England coastal areas. Snowfall the rest of the wek appears to winding down with a net loss of snow this week and weekend. Traditional Sugaring Weather? Traditional sugaring weather with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s were likely late this week and part of the weekend. Lows will be sufficiently cold enough to keep the Sugar maples recharging. This is not like the big synoptic scale warm up weve seen earlier where temperatures go well above normal followed by sharply colder arctic air earlier in the seasons. This will more traditional with snow still on the ground and lots of the ground frozen with the trees warm during the mid and late parts of the day. Cooler weather after this weekend was indicated later next week.

This is a must see property to appreciate.

Atmospheric CO2 Continues To Change February 17th through 23rd CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa Observatory were 397.11 ppm and going up. This was compared to 394.67 ppm last February 2012 for the same week. Thats up 2.44 parts per million from one year ago. Heat From Down UnderFuture Summer Heat Signature Sydney: Australias weather went on steroids over a summer that saw an unprecedented heatwave, bushfires and floods, the climate chief said on Monday, warning that global warming would only make things worse. The Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed the three summer months ending February 28 were the hottest season ever recorded in Australia, leading the governments Climate Commission to label it the Angry Summer in a new report. The Australian summer over 2012 and 2013 has been defined by extreme weather events across much of the continent, including record-breaking heat, severe bushfires, extreme rainfall and damaging flooding, the report said. Extreme heatwaves and catastrophic bushfire conditions during the Angry Summer were made worse by climate change. The agencys chief commissioner Tim Flannery said the summer had been one of extremes, and was in some ways like an athlete who improves their baseline performance by taking steroids. The same thing is happening with our climate system, he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. As it warms up were getting fewer cold days and cold events and many, many more record hot events. So it is - in effect its a climate on steroids is what were seeing. Australia experienced its hottest ever average national maximum temperature on January 7 of 40.30 degrees Celsius or 105F, while 44 sites, including Sydney and Hobart, recorded all-time high temperatures in the summer.
