Barre Elks Lodge Helps


Mothers and Children in Need

Barre Elks Lodge was notified of some Mothers and their children receiving support from Circle (formerly known as Battered
Womens Service and Shelter) that did not have any gifts from
Santa for Christmas. With a little help from Facebook, Barre Elks
members and friends sprang into action. Over $200 was collected
and matched by the Lodge. Additional presents were purchased by
members and friends of Barre Lodge and on Monday, Dec. 22,
bags of toys, clothes, boots, socks, bedding, art supplies, sleds for
the children, and coats, boots, bedding and clothing for their
Mothers were presented to Circle Shelter Coordinator Cindy
Browning and Lucinda Brewer, Youth and Family Coordinator.
Circle is the non-profit organization in Washington County, that
provides support and services to victims and survivors of intimate
partner violence. Circle provides a safe, confidential living place
for women and children fleeing from abusive situations. Shelter
staff offer emotional support, resources, and education about
healthy relationships for residents while working with them to
plan a future free from abuse.

Lottery for Roadside


Firewood Lots Opens

The Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation will open the


lottery for personal roadside firewood lots on state forest lands
January 2, 2015.
The two-week registration for cut-your-own lots ends January
16. Each roadside lot costs $30 and yields about three cords of
wood for the 2015 home heating season.
Demand for roadside firewood always exceeds supply, so be
sure to get your name in, cautions Commissioner Michael Snyder.
Roadside lots are trees that can be cut close to drivable forest
roads. Harvesting your own firewood is a good way for families to
fulfill some of their home energy needs and enjoy physical activity on their state lands.
This year roadside lots are available in the towns of Duxbury,
Orange, Johnson, Groton, and Sutton. Participants will need to
indicate where they prefer to cut.
Register online at www.vtfpr.org or call 802-828-1531 for more
information. The department will accept one signup per household. The department will notify winners of the roadside lots in
early March.
All participants are strongly encouraged to learn chainsaw safety
skills to use this equipment on firewood lots. Some lots may require
four-wheel-drive vehicles to access. Mechanized skidding of
wood to the roadside is not allowed. Please read the general information and chainsaw safety tips posted at www.vtfpr.org.

THANK YOU FOR SAYING


I SAW IT IN

Fourth grade students from Rumney Memorial School have developed a passion for helping animals at the
Central Vermont Humane Society.

Rumney School CARES for Animals at


Central Vermont Humane Society

by C. Babcock
In my fourth grade class at Rumney Memorial
School, we started off the year by reading the
book Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. In this
classic novel, a boy named Marty finds a beagle
who has run away from his owner. Marty names
the dog Shiloh and learns that the owner, Judd,
doesnt treat this dog well. Over the course of a
few weeks it became clear to me that my 16
fourth grade students cared deeply about animals. We began to discuss how we could help
keep animals safe in the community we live in.
We explored the Central Vermont Humane
Society website to see how we could help. As a
class, we chose a few projects to focus on. The
first big project we took on was to create cat toys
for the cats living at the Humane Society. We
made these out of old socks and catnip. Our next
large project was a school-wide fundraiser. As a
class we made post cards with pictures of animals on them. We sent home letters to the whole
Rumney community to allow them to place an
order for a pack of 6 postcards for $1.
All of the proceeds went directly to the
Humane Society. My students worked tirelessly
on creating these cards and also in counting,
packaging and delivering the post cards to the
whole school. For the past two months we have

also been creating Adopt Me posters for the animals living at the Humane Society. Students
have really taken leadership on this and have
been checking up on the website to see if animals
have been adopted or when new animals arrive at
the shelter. A few animals have even been adopted by Rumney families! Our class was able to
meet one of the dogs named Elizabeth, or Lizzie
for short, which was adopted by a family in our
school.
On November 19 we took a class field trip to
the Humane Society in East Montpelier. It was
so exciting to see all our hard work pay off!
Since we had visited the website frequently, we
recognized many of the animals and it was very
exciting to see them in person. Since our field
trip, we have continued to make Adopt Me posters. It is evident to me that this is an issue my
students feel strongly about. It has been amazing
to see them so motivated and committed to a
cause. I am hoping that as a class we can do
something later in the year to stay connected to
the Central Vermont Humane Society.
Here is the website that we used if you would
like to explore ways to help the Central Vermont
Humane Society. http://cvhumane.com/getinvolved/just-for-kids/

T.J. Michaels (pictured here left) and D.J. Green, of Frank FM 107.1 and Froggy FM 100.9, for the 11th year, participated in an on-air safe drinking test this
year with the Orange County Sheriffs Department. Pictured here is Officer
Jean Miguel Bariteau (right) who administered the breathalizer, and Lt. Gov.
Phil Scott (center) who made sure the test was administered fairly. Officer
Bariteau drove both of the radio personalities home after their test. One of
the things about me that most people dont know is that for a long period of
time in my life I was an Emergency Medical Technician. Through my experiences as an EMT, Ive seen the destruction, senseless loss of life and lives
and families that are forever changed because of impaired driving, said D.J.,
adding, T.J. and I had a drink every 20 minutes to purposely get my blood
alcohol to the Vermont Legal Limit of .08 to show the effect that alcohol has
on your reflexes, perception and reaction time on Mon., Dec. 22 and 29 at
6:00 a.m., all with one goal in mind - to get you to think before you drink
this holiday season and to show you that each drink has an impairing effect.
Celebrate responsibly, DWIIts not worth it!

Bond Auto Parts Works to Raise


$45,000 for Local Food Shelves

Bond Auto Parts, Inc., a Barre, VT based company, has created


a fundraising mission during this holiday season to raise $45,000
for local food shelves. Food shelves across the region are typically hit hard during the holiday season and money raised can go
to purchasing food to replenish the shelves or help run their programs.
We wanted to create a program to raise funds for food shelves
in each community that we have stores, stated Scott Bond,
President & CEO. We drilled it down to the local level, figuring
if each store raised $1,000, that would add up to a big number
company wide.
Bond Auto has 45 store locations throughout Vermont, New
Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York. Each store has been
working since Thanksgiving to raise $1,000 to donate to a local
food shelf within their community. To date, Bond Auto stores and
their customers have raised just under $26,000. The program goes
until midday on December 31st. People who come into any Bond
Auto Parts store and make a $5 food shelf donation will receive a
$10 off coupon valid at any Bond Auto store for a future purchase.
Our customer base traditionally is very good about supporting
our charitable missions throughout the year, said Mark Mast, VP
of Marketing. We felt that creating a come back coupon would
give something back to our customers too.
Once the program wraps up at the end of the year, Bond will be
forwarding the donations to a food shelf in each stores local community.
For more information about the Bond Auto Good Neighbor
Discount Food Shelf program go to www.bondauto.com/bondgives-back/food-shelf.

the trash is the law.


Vermonts new universal recycling law bans food scraps
by 2020. Many restaurants are required to
start this year, by giving edible leftover food to food shelves, to
farmers, or for compost. Lets make the new year, the start of
a more sustainable way of managing our resources. Ask your favorWe

Vermonters Enjoy Better Access


At Two Central Vt. Post Offices

Holiday mailing for people with disabilities became easier at


two Central Vermont post offices this year. The post offices in
Barre City and Worcester have made improvements that have
made them more accessible to people with disabilities. This
increased access came as a result of the U.S. Department of
Justices response to complaints filed by the Vermont Center for
Independent Living.
The Barre Post Office now exceeds federal Architectural
Barriers Act standards via a new automatic door opener at the top
of the ramped entrance on Prospect Street.
Access to public buildings is very important to people with
disabilities, said VCIL Executive Director Sarah Launderville.
The Architectural Barriers Act passed in 1968 for federal facilities, was the precursor to the Americans with Disabilities Act of
1990 required of state and local governments and businesses.
Forty-five years after ABA, people with disabilities should expect
all of their post offices to provide access.
At the Worcester Post Office, the United States Postal Service
constructed a lift to provide access from the ground to the entrance
and installed a marked van accessible parking space. Residents
mailing packages in Worcester can also pop in for a coffee and
pastry at the locally owned Post Office Caf in the rear of the
building.
Leslie Sabo is the co-owner of the caf and owns the building
that houses the eatery and post office.
Were very happy about the work that was done, she said. I
think it makes the entrance to both establishments much more
fluid and smooth. The post office certainly made a huge improvement.
VCIL, in addition to working to protect the civil rights of people
with disabilities, serves as Vermonts technical assistance provider
on the ADA through a grant from the National Institute on
Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research
(NIDILRR).

the seniors.

World Class Service To Our


Readers In a Changing World

At The World, we have been proud to serve the greater Barre-Montpelier

area since 1972. You, our readers, have been the guiding post to that service.
We appreciate your faithfulness and dedication to The World and our
advertisers. Like the many changes that central Vermont has experienced
over the past 42 years, we are embarking on another change.
We have decided to change the delivery method of The World. We
will be adopting a Demand Distribution Delivery System. This means
that we will increase the number of stores and businesses at which The
World will be distributed, and discontinuing delivery to households.
The number of newsstand delivery locations will be over 200 across the
region. Cost structures, including mandated workmans compensation and
unemployment, the Vermont health assessment, fuel cost, and many other
cost factors have made our current delivery impossible to maintain without
passing the increases to our advertisers. We feel that maintaining the
National Award Winning Quality of The World is of utmost importance
so that our advertisers can continue to connect with you, our readers, on a
weekly basis.

ANR Secretary Deb Markowitz has announced that Trey Martin


will become the new Deputy Secretary of the Vermont Agency of
Natural Resources. Martin will replace Justin Johnson, who leaves
the Agency in January to become Governor Shumlins Secretary
of Administration. Martin is set to start on Jan. 2, 2015.
Martin, who currently serves as Senior Counsel for Government
Affairs for the Agencys Department of Environmental
Conservation, has been with the ANR since 2012. In that role he
has worked extensively on legislative and policy initiatives for the
department, as well as serving as a departmental liaison to the
legislature.
I am thrilled to have Trey in this new role, said Markowitz.
Trey is well-versed in the many legislative, policy and administrative initiatives we are working on across the agency. He is well
respected by our external partners, the legislature, our sister agencies and Agency staff members. I am confident that he will bring
a wide-range of skills and talents to this position, and that he will
be an exceptional Deputy Secretary for our Agency, and for the
people of Vermont.
For his part, Martin remarked, I am honored and humbled at
being asked to take on the responsibilities of Agency of Natural
Resources Deputy Secretary. I have big shoes to fill, but I will be
working with a terrific leader in Secretary Markowitz and a great
leadership team. Ive worked very hard for the last two years on
behalf of the Department of Environmental Conservation, and I
am confident that work has prepared me well to meet the demands
of this new opportunity.
Prior to his work at the Agency of Natural Resources, Martin
was an attorney with the law firm Downs Rachlin and Martin,
where he focused on land use, business law and government
affairs. He is a graduate of Vermont Law School and Middlebury
College, and has formerly worked as a teacher and school administrator.
In his spare time, Martin enjoys mountain biking, telemark skiing, trail running, cooking, and working in the woods. Martin lives
in Calais with his wife Roberta, four children, and dog Sola.

Secretary of State Jim Condos announced last week the appointment of Chris Winters as Deputy Secretary of State. Winters has
served the Secretary of States office for 18 years, the last nine of
which he has served as Director of the Office of Professional
Regulation.
I am excited to have Chris as my Deputy. I have worked with
him for many years even before becoming Secretary of State.
During my time in the Vermont Senate, particularly as Chair of
Senate Government Operations, Chris worked with my committee
and me and I have always had great respect for his managerial
skills and legal expertise, commented Condos.
Secretary Condos added, Chriss years of experience and his
excellent reputation across Vermont State government will allow
him to hit the ground running as we head into the legislative session and continue to work on improving the offices accessibility
and transparency.
Colin Benjamin, Board Counsel for the Office of Professional
Regulation, will be replacing Winters as its Director. Secretary
Condos remarked, Colin has been excellently situated to take
over as Director of the Office of Professional Regulation. He is an
incredibly dedicated public servant who is very passionate about
public protection. He will be a great fit for the office.
Brian Leven, the former Deputy, will be stepping down in
January to work closer to home. He has worked for the state of
Vermont for approximately 16 years the first twelve in the Office
of Legislative Council and the last four as the Deputy Secretary of
State. The Secretary of State wishes Brian and his family well on
their next adventure.

Responsibility Instead of a Rubber Stamp !


by H. Brooke Paige

Introduction
There has been much speculation in the media and on the
internet regarding the subject of Vermonts Constitutional
requirement that a joint session of the Vermont House and
Senate elect our next governor. That the newly seated Legislature
will be responsible for electing our next governor is a fact of law,
since none of the candidates for governor received the required
majority of the vote in November General Election .
Those who are demanding that the Legislators rubber stamp
the inadequate vote cast for Mr. Shumlin and elect him as governor
because he got the most votes, regardless of the language in the
Constitution, are nothing more than unabashed partisans
Self-Serving Partisan Tactics
One tactic of the Shumlin supporters has been to blur the
meanings of the word election as they are used in the Constitution,
which clearly states that if no candidate receives a majority of the
votes then there has been no election. Websters Dictionary
informs us of four definitions of the word:
election - 1) event at which people vote, 2) choosing or
being chosen by vote, 3) selection of something, 4)
selection by God for something.
Observing the definitions, clearly the State of Vermont conducted
an election in November (using definition #1), however in that
process there was no election (using definition #2) of a governor,
under the Constitutional requirement that a candidate must have
received a majority of the votes cast in order to have earned the
office.
The authors of our states Constitution provided a mechanism
for resolving such inconclusive (less than majority) elections.
Rather than requiring a run-off election between the highest votegetters to achieve a majority result or some other method, like
pistols at 20 paces Vermonts Constitution places the responsibility
for electing the next governor into the hands of the newly elected
Legislature. The legislators are entrusted with the responsibility
of conducting the business of the state on behalf of the citizen
voters including resolving questions left unresolved by the
General Election. Clearly, this process is not intended to be a
ceremonial exercise confirming the individual who received a
plurality of the votes, as a plurality is considered constitutionally
insufficient. The Vermont Constitution and the Citizens of the
Vermont expect the Legislators, acting as electors, to exercise their
best judgment in selecting the individual they believe will best
serve the state and not to merely rubber stamp the earlier
insufficient result.
Using a different theory, the Milne supporters have suggested
that the Legislators should vote for the same candidate that the
majority of the constituents in their district voted for. While this is
an interesting idea, like the rubber stamp idea, there is no language
in the Constitution to support expecting the Legislators to do so.
Historic Precedents and Legal Rulings
Some have suggested that the Legislatures role in electing the
governor, when the voters fail to elect one, is an antiquated and
irrelevant throwback to the days of horse and buggies. The process
of collecting, delivering and tabulating the vote that Vermont
follows today has been updated from the process described in the
Vermont Constitution which instructs:
47. [ELECTION OF GOVERNOR, LIEUTENANTGOVERNOR AND TREASURER]
The voters of each town shall, on the day of election for
choosing Representatives to attend the General Assembly, bring in
their votes for Governor, with the name fairly written, to the
Constable, who shall seal them up, and write on them, Votes for
Governor and deliver them to the Representatives chosen to
attend the General Assembly; and at the opening of the General
Assembly, there shall be a committee appointed out of the Senate
and House of Representatives, who, after being duly sworn to the
faithful discharge of their trust, shall proceed to receive, sort, and
count the votes for Governor, and declare the person who has the
major part of the votes, to be Governor for the two years ensuing.
The Lieutenant-Governor and the Treasurer shall be chosen in the
manner above directed.
The votes for Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, and Treasurer, of
the State, shall be sorted and counted, and the result declared, by
a committee appointed by the Senate and House of
Representatives.
If, at any time, there shall be no election, of Governor,
Lieutenant-Governor, or Treasurer, of the State, the Senate and
House of Representatives shall by a joint ballot, elect to fill the
office, not filled as aforesaid, one of the three candidates for such
office (if there be so many) for whom the greatest number of votes
shall have been returned.
This section of the Constitution remains unaltered since 1870,
though numerous other parts have been amended as recently as
2010. While the Secretary of State now collects, tallies and reports
the results to the General Assembly the spirit of the process has
been preserved and this process has not been challenged before the
Vermont Supreme Court, the final arbitrators and interpreters of
the state Constitution. The process is far from archaic, in fact it
seems quite contemporary, entrusting the final decision to the
Legislators chosen by the citizens to conduct the states affairs on
their behalf.
When the responsibility of electing the governor has fallen upon
the Legislators, in the past, they generally have selected the same
individual who had received the plurality of votes in the General
Election though they were under no obligation to do so. This is
certainly reasonable if, all other conditions were equal, the person
who received the greatest number of votes was worthy of
consideration, however the Legislators were required to consider

all information available to them including facts that the voters


were not privy to during the General Election and irregularities in
the election process had resulted in a outcome at variance with the
best interest of the state.
This is exactly what has happened, in three past gubernatorial
elections:
1790 Shortly after the General Election; news of what, at the
time, appeared to be questionable land dealings on the part
incumbent Governor Thomas Chittenden came to light. Chittenden
had received a plurality of the vote, however the news of his land
dealings persuaded the Legislature to elect Moses Robertson as
governor. In time, the rumors of Chittendens questionable
dealings proved unwarranted and he received a majority of the
votes in the 1791 election and was returned to office.
1813 The War of 1812 had created unique circumstances in
the state, the voting rolls had swollen with the presence of soldiers
engaged in the war effort. In 1812, the Legislature had granted the
freemans vote to all soldiers wherever they were stationed within
the state. The war was not going well by election time and the
Federalist had gained a political foothold in Republican-Democrat
Vermont. This newfound Federalist strength along with voting
manipulation (especially in thickly populated Burlington and
Colchester), findings of voting irregularities and, ultimately,
seizing control of the canvasing board - resulted in the election of
Federalist, Martin Chittenden, over the higher vote-getter
incumbent Republican-Democrat Jonas Galusha. In this case,
through political intrigue the Federalists commandeer the election
process and elect Martin Chittenden to office even though
Galusha had received a plurality in the General Election.
1853 - Erastus Fairbanks, a Whig, had been elected governor in
1852 and had successfully convinced the Legislature to enact an
unpopular, statewide prohibition law. In the ensuing election, the
new law was a major issue and while Fairbanks had received a
plurality of the vote he had failed to receive a majority. The
Legislature was under pressure to repeal the prohibition law and
remove Fairbanks. The Legislatures joint balloting elected John
S. Robinson, a Democrat, over Fairbanks even though he had
received a plurality of the vote in the General Election.
While most would say that the 1813 election bares little
resemblance to the political conditions at work in the 2014
election, the issues of questionable land dealings and the enactment
of unpopular legislation impinging on personal rights and freedoms
of the citizens do bare a striking resemblance to issues raised in the
current election.
The Issue of Secret Balloting
Some in both the Shumlin and Milne camps have raised
question about the use of a secret ballot. In fact, the Constitution
specifies that the election be conducted by joint balloting.
Balloting by nature is a secret process as opposed to public
expressions by a voice vote or a show of hands. Any question of
ambiguity has been resolved by the Vermont Supreme Court in the
case of Temple v. Mead 4 VT 535 (1832). Wherein the high court
distinguished between voting in the open, visa voce, and voting by
ballot the principle object of [which] is to enable the elector to
express his opinion secretly, without subject to be overawed
(intimidated) or to any ill will or persecution on account of his
vote )
Conclusion
The Legislators, acting as Electors, will meet in Joint Session
on January 7th to elect our next governor. The voters, in the
General Election, failed to elect a governor with a sufficient
margin of victory, a majority of the vote. The voters did study the
candidates and by their vote reduced the field of candidates from
seven to three, eliminating Diamondstone, Ericson, Peters and
Peyton leaving the Legislators to choose between Feliciano,
Milne and Shumlin. From history we learn that there are parallels
to the current dilemma, where Legislators have elected individuals
who were not the highest vote-getters when there were questions
about an incumbent Candidates business dealings (1789) and
when an incumbent had pushed through social policy that went
against will of the majority (1853). It is the responsibility of our
Legislators to study all three of the highest vote-getters to look
at their moral and ethical fiber to review their positions on the
issues, consider their margin of victory and, in the case of the
incumbent, review his record of successes and failures.
In the election at hand, we have an incumbent who has
experienced moral and ethical issues, has pressed unpopular social
and economic issues (healthcare, big wind, Vermont Gas, etc.)
with limited success and great expense to the citizens and state
and appears less than totally cognizant of his failures and
misdeeds. Surely, if the incumbent was worthy of another term the
voters would have handed him a decisive victory, they did not!
The alternates are two experienced, yet untried contenders who
have expressed the desire to navigate our state on a more moderate
social and fiscal course.
Now, it is up to the Legislators, not to merely rubber stamp
the insufficient result of the General Election, but to review all of
the information at hand and by the process of joint balloting, to
elect Vermonts next Governor.

Former VY Union President/


Business Manager Agrees With,
Explains you done good
Comment by Gov. Salmon

Editor,
Thank you for publishing former Gov. Thomas
Salmons accurate assessment of Vermont Yankee
nuclear power plant, specifically that during 42
years of operation it has been environmentally
benign and never hurt a soul. I worked with
the employees at Vermont Yankee for many years
and I would like to comment on why it was such
a safe workplace and neighbor. For starters, long
before the first nuclear power plant went online,
a commitment to safety was hardwired into the
cultural and organizational circuitry of the
International Brother of Electrical Workers
(IBEW), whose Local 300 I was honored to serve
as President and Business Manager for many
years.
In the early days of Americas electrification,
the IBEW fought hard to reduce the high incidence of line worker electrocution by improving
safety design, equipment and training. At nuclear
plants such as Vermont Yankee, labors zeal for
the safety of its brothers and sisters was joined by
the industrys prudent commitment to zero tolerance for safety error and aggressive, skilled
oversight by the federal government. Its been
this way for decades, and gets more so every

year. And of course the good work will continue


as the plant is decommissioned. I am sure I can
speak for the past and present members of Local
300 when I say we are proud to have helped
Vermont Yankee meet and exceed the very high
standard of safety performance set by the IBEW
by adopting our Code of Excellence program,
forming superior labor/management team, working with the state Occupational Health and
Safety the NRC as well as other institutions who
deal with nuclear safety standards. I fully agree
with Gov. Salmon: you done good.

Hollowing Our Military

Editor,
I have previously written about the disastrous
impact of sequestration on our armed forces.
Douglas Wissing delves into this topic in his
article RIF Tide in the December 2014 issue of
The American Legion Magazine, which I partially paraphrase in the next paragraph.
After 9/11 we had 570,000 soldiers in the
Army, and it may decrease to around 400,000,
which will be our smallest Army since before
WWII. The Marines will go from 184,000 to
175,000, and the National Guard will lose 43,000
soldiers and the Reserves 20,000. The Air Force
will have about 700 fewer aircraft.

Senate Report:

Lieutenant Governor Silas Jenison and


Acting Governor
by Senator Bill Doyle

rom the 1830s until the Civil War,


there was a high degree of political
instability. There were many cases
during this period when no candidate
for Governor was able to gain a statewide majority. The ultimate of political
instability was reached in 1835 when no
candidate for governor was able to gain
a majority. The unicameral legislature
was incapable after three days of wrangling and sixty-ve ballots, to choose a
governor. As a last resort, it was decided
that Lieutenant Governor Silas Jenison
should also become acting governor.
This debacle was an important factor in the adoption of a Constitutional
amendment that abolished the Governors Council, which created the Vermont State Senate in 1836 based upon
population. But there was also disappointment that the Legislature couldnt
make a decision with regard to electing
a Governor in 1835.
Jenison was elected Governor in 1836
and served until 1841. Jenisons address
to the Legislature in 1838 called for the
abolition of the death penalty and opened up an era of reform of the
Vermont penal system. He wrote that imprisonment and rehabilitation could better deter crime than capital punishment.
In his address to the Legislature in 1838 he said, experience
shows that crime is not increased but diminished if the criminal
laws of the country become less barbarous and vindictive. Retaliatory punishment has in a measure ceased and sound and substantial

Hollowing Our Military

reasons for iniction of punishment are


based upon the reformation of the criminal and security of the public. That is evidently the policy of our laws in all cases
except in the iniction of the punishment
of death.
Jenison is one of the rst governors to
have become politically attuned since the
War of 1812. This was an era of idealism,
optimism and reform and his generation
had and no memory of the days of the
American Revolution and the uncertainty
that followed. The political agenda during this period was dominated by the antislavery movement and the temperance
crusade. In 1852, the legislature enacted
a prohibition law.
Jenison was born in Shoreham in 1791.
His father died when he was only one.
Much of his success was attributed to the
strength of character of his mother. He
worked on the farm in his early youth and
could only attend school a few weeks each
year. His education consisted of extensive
reading and devoting his nights to study,
which became a habit of his life.
Senator Bill Doyle serves on the Senate Education Committee
and Senate Economic Affairs Committee, and is the Senate Assistant 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.

Being former Navy enlisted and a Navy officer, I am especially


concerned with the state of our Navy. We currently have 286 ships,
including 11 carrier battle groups.
Sequestration will keep our Navy (with new construction) at
286 ships, but decrease carrier battle groups to 10. Our Naval
command estimates we need 300 ships, including 12 carrier battle

groups, to effectively project our military power in the world and


safeguard our security. Lets not forget 90% of the worlds trade
passes over the oceans.
The scale back of our overseas land bases increases the need for
a strong Navy, including carrier battle groups.

Make Your New Years Resolution Come True


New Years resolutions provide a perfect
opportunity to set positive goals for the year to
come. Old habits can be hard to break, which can
make it difficult for men and women to stay
committed to their New Years resolutions. But a
new year marks a new chapter, and the following
are some ways you can ensure this years resolutions dont go unresolved.
Be specific. A resolution thats too general
may ultimately prove ineffective. For example, if
you resolve to lose weight this year, you probably hope to lose a substantial amount of weight
over the next 12 months, as opposed to just one
or two pounds. If you set specific and periodic
goals, such as lose one to two pounds by the end
of January, as part of your resolution, then you
are building in some measuring sticks along the
way, and meeting those measuring sticks can
motivate you to stay on course and realize your
resolution by years end.
Dont go overboard. If you traditionally find
resolutions hard to live up to, then stick to a
single resolution this year. This allows you to
focus your efforts more effectively and ensures
you wont be overburdened, which could negatively impact your ability to realize your resolutions.
Use technology. Saving more money is a
popular New Years resolution, and now men
and women looking to save more can employ
technology to help them realize their financial
goals. If your goal for the coming year is to save
X amount of dollars, sit down and calculate
how much you need to
save each pay period
to realize that goal.
You can then have
that figure automatically deposited into an interest-bearing savings account each
time your paycheck is deposit-

Did you know?

ed into your account.


Enlist a friend. If your New Years resolution
is one that others can apply to their own lives,
then by all means enlist a friend. For example,
men and women who want to find more time to
exercise in the coming year can enlist a friend or
family member to exercise with them. The buddy
system is a great motivating tool, and enlisting
the help of a friend or family member provides
the added benefit of seeing that loved one more
often in the year ahead.
Dont let setbacks derail your resolution.
Resolutions too often fall by the wayside when
men and women experience setbacks directly
related to their resolutions. If you resolved to
save more money but had a month when that
simply was not possible, dont allow that to
derail your resolution for the rest of the year.
Setbacks are nearly inevitable, but theyre never
an excuse to give up on a resolution.

n n n

According to a 2014 study from researchers at


the University of Scranton, just 45 percent of
Americans admit to routinely making New Years
resolutions. The study also showed that an additional 38 percent of Americans acknowledged
they never make New Years resolutions. Among
the former group, self improvement or education-related resolutions were most popular, followed by weight resolutions. The study also

found that resolutions tend to be less successful


as a person ages. While 39 percent of survey
participants in their twenties reported achieving
their resolutions each year, those in their fifties
reported a success rate of just 14 percent. Time
also seems to be against resolutions, as just 46
percent of respondents reported maintaining
their resolutions for more than six months.

What is a Blue Moon?


The modern day definition of a Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in one
month. A full moon occurs roughly every 29.5 days and on the rare occasions when
the full moon falls at the very beginning of a month there is a good chance a Blue
Moon will occur at the end of the month. According to this definition the next blue
moon will occur on July 31, 2015.
Depending on the exact time of the Blue Moon it is possible that some places in the
world dont technically have a Blue Moon. As an example the Blue Moon on August
31, 2012 occured exactly at 13:58 UT. The Blue Moon will occur on August 31 for
South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, India, and Austrialia but New
Zealand will just miss out. For New Zealand the Full Moon occurs just past midnight
on September 1st. For exact times of the Full and Blue Moons see the Full Moon
Calendar.

Why do the seasons change? The four seasons are determined by shifting
sunlight (not heat!)which is determined by how our planet orbits the Sun
and the tilt of its axis.
The winter solstice is the darkest day of the year when the Sun reaches its
most southern point in the sky at local noon. After this date, the days start
getting longer, i.e., the amount of daylight begins to increase. See our
First Day of Winter page!
On the vernal equinox, day and night are each approximately 12 hours long
(with the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere,
occurring a few days before the vernal equinox). The Sun crosses the
celestial equator going northward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly
due west. See our First Day of Spring page!
On the summer solstice, we enjoy the most daylight of the calendar year.
The Sun reaches its most northern point in the sky at local noon. After this
date, the days start getting shorter, i.e., the length of daylight starts to
decrease. See our First Day of Summer page!
On the autumnal equinox, day and night are each about 12 hours long (with
the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring a few days after the autumnal equinox). The Sun crosses the celestial
equator going southward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due
west.

Prevent Motion
Sickness

Here are some tips for dealing


with motion sickness when
traveling. Focus on a distant
stationary object or the horizon.
Try to keep your head still against
the seat back. Don't read or write.
Avoid eating greasy or spicy
foods. Don't smoke or drink
alcohol. Talk with your pharmacist
or doctor about prescription
patches that help prevent motion
sickness, or over-the-counter
medications
containing
antihistamines.
Non-drug
alternatives such as acupressure
wristbands are also helpful for
some.

Vermont is among the nations best prepared


states to manage severe disease outbreaks and
contain their spread, according to a new report
by the Trust for Americas Health and Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation.
Vermont was one of only five states to score
eight out of 10 on the report: Outbreaks:
Protecting Americans from Infectious Diseases,
published on Dec. 18. Half of states and
Washington, D.C. scored five or lower out of 10
key indicators related to preventing, detecting,
diagnosing and responding to outbreaks.
Maryland, Massachusetts, Virginia and Tennessee
tied with Vermont for the top score.
Eight is a good score considering the diverse
criteria. We are well prepared for emerging
threats, for example we are currently actively
monitoring several people for Ebola, said Patsy
Kelso, state epidemiologist for infectious disease. We have excellent coordination between

local health, epidemiology, public health preparedness, EMS and our hospitals, and we work
hard to protect Vermonters.
The report reviewed the core abilities of public health systems to prepare for and prevent
and control the spread of infectious diseases
using containment strategies, investigative capabilities, and drilling and training for hospitals. A
states public health funding, flu vaccination
rates, reductions in central line associated bloodstream infections, and the capabilities of public
health laboratories during emergencies and drills
were also studied.
Major infectious disease threats identified in
the report were Ebola, Enterovirus D68 (EvD68), acute flaccid myelitis in children, superbugs that are antibiotic resistant, healthcare
associated infections and foodborne illness.

New Resolutions for a New Year

With the new year upon us, parents


have been asking me to help them help
their children with their New Years
resolutions. So while children rarely
need the help of a grown-up, let me
offer a few suggestions to ring in the
new year.
Infants need to resolve to sleep on
their backs to prevent their being at risk
for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and to
keep unsafe items out of their mouths. They
should also resolve to put themselves back to
sleep without needing parental assistance, should
they wake in the middle of the night.
Toddlers and preschoolers should resolve to
brush their teeth twice a day, wash their hands
after using the bathroom or before eating, and
help clean up any messes they might have created while playing,
School-age children should resolve to try new
foods and to limit the amount of soda and sugary
fruit drinks they drink. Instead, they should drink
milk or water at least three times every day. They
should also find a physical activity they like and
resolve to do it at least three times a week, such
as bike riding, jumping rope or playing tag.
Both children and infants need to resolve to
always be restrained properly in a car safety seat
when traveling. And they should wear a helmet
when cycling, skiing or rollerblading. All chil-

dren should also insist on being read to


or reading to themselves each and
every day.
Teens and older children should
remember never to give out personal
information on the internet. They
should also limit their TV and video
game activity to one-to-two hours per
day. And they should never use a cell
phone or text while driving or even riding a
bicycle.
Teens should also resolve to engage in healthy
activities like sports, exercise, music or art when
stressed rather than consider the use of drugs or
alcohol. They should also resolve to talk to their
parents or another trusted adult to get help if they
or their friends are stressed or considering making risky choices.
While old acquaintance may be forgot, hopefully your children will not forget these resolutions so that 2015 will be a terrific year for them
and in turn for your entire family.

Application Season Opens for


Governors Institutes of
Vermonts Upcoming Winter VSAC to Offer Financial Aid Forms Workshops at Local High Schools
Vermont Student Assistance Corp. will offer free workshops to federal tax return; and most recent W-2 or year-end pay stub. All
Weekends for Teenagers
help families fill out financial aid forms at local high schools in

The Governors Institutes of Vermont is inviting high school


student applications for its two upcoming Winter Weekends,
February 6-8 at Goddard College and February 13-15 at Marlboro
College. Like GIVs acclaimed summer programs, these accelerated mini-Institutes give talented high school students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the topics they care about, gain
in-depth knowledge, and make new friends who share their interests. Students in grades 9 through 12 are encouraged to apply.
The Governors Institutes, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is a unique
Vermont organization giving high-potential students access to
intellectual depth beyond what is available in most schools. Since
1983, more than 10,000 students have embraced the unique opportunity to deepen their educations through GIV, and many describe
their GIV experience as life-changing.
2015 Winter Weekend topic choices will include Comedy
Theater, Song/Writing, Entrepreneurship, Current Issues and
Leadership, Advanced Math for Girls, or Astrophotography. Each
topic is led by professionals or faculty experts in that field. For a
full description of each subject area, please visit http://www.giv.
org/winter.
Applications are being accepted through January 13, 2015, with
priority given to early applications. Any Vermont student can
attend a Governors Institute regardless of family finances or
where in the state he or she lives, thanks to GIVs mission of
accessibility. Tuition is based on sliding scale and financial assistance is available. For more information, see www.giv.org.

These informal workshops offer guidance on filling out the

On Veterans Day, the family of the late Lt. Col. Howard C.

of its kind at Norwich University. The donation includes letters
Lewis penned to his twin brother Harold (who had also attended
Norwich) and parents Daniel and Dorothy Lewis. The collection
also includes several photographs of Howard and the Lewis family, 1964-1966, and a file of information pertaining to the dedication of the Lt. Col. Howard C. Lewis Memorial Chapel at the
Camp Ethan Allen Firing Range in Jericho, VT, in 1988.
During his Vietnam service, Lewis was cited seven times for
bravery and was awarded the Soldiers Medal, five Bronze Stars,
the Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Medal, two Army
Commendation medals and, later, the Vermont Medal of Merit.
Following his return from Vietnam, he joined the Vermont
National Guard, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel. He lived in Barre

Granite City. At the time of his death, he was survived by wife


Sandra Roscoe Lewis, and two children.
The Lewis donation evolved from a collaboration between
Lewiss youngest brother, Donald Lewis 72, and the Norwich
Record, Norwich Universitys alumni magazine. Don Lewis originally presented the letters for publication in the winter 2015 issue,
dedicated to Norwich alumni who served in Vietnam.
Shortly thereafter, another member of the class of 1966, William
F. Bonk, donated his collection of Vietnam letters. Bonk had also
provided a collection of letters to the Record for publication, and
afterwards, graciously offered them to the Archive for public
access.
The collection consists of letters written by Bonk to his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bonk of Connecticut, during his service as a
helicopter pilot in Vietnam, February through October 1968. The
collection also includes color slides documenting his time in
Vietnam as well as a single slide probably taken during his NU
commencement in 1966.
These gifts constitute the first two substantial manuscript collections from the Vietnam era to be available in the University
Archives. They will serve as the foundation to helping students,
faculty, staff, alumni, and researchers better understand the
Norwich experience in Vietnam.
To access these collections, please contact the Norwich
University Archives, Kreitzberg Library, 802.485.2947 or
archives@norwich.edu.

JANUARY 2014

The Vermont National Guard and the Office of the


Adjutant General presented Vermonts Own 40th
Army Band in concert. The free performance took
place on Wednesday, January 15th at 7:30 p.m. in the
House of Representatives at the Vermont State House
in Montpelier. This year the 40th Army Band featured
the musical performance teams The Liberty Belles, a
woodwind quintet, Ruck and Load, a big band style
ensemble, and The Power of 10, a power rock show
band. This concert was the opener for the annual
Farmers Night series of concerts and entertainment
at the State House during the legislative session.
Norwich Universitys
Sullivan Museum and
History Center presented a new exhibition in
the Civil War series,
1864: Some Suffer So
Much. This exhibition,
which opened Monday,
Jan. 13, 2014, is the
fourth in a series that
explores Norwich Universitys contributions to the
conflict. This exhibit presented the stories of Norwich
alumni during the bloody year of 1864. Through
objects, photos and ephemera, the exhibit examines
the role of military surgeons who treated wounded
soldiers on the battlefields and in the three Vermont
Civil War hospitals in Brattleboro, Burlington and
Montpelier. It also traced the history of post-traumatic
stress disorder from the Civil War to the present.
Katie Sedore, an English
and Language Arts Teacher
at Spaulding High School
in Barre, was surprised
with an unrestricted
$25,000 Milken Educator
Award during a schoolwide assembly. This prestigious honor, the only one
presented in Vermont, will be bestowed in 2013-14
upon up to 40 of Americas most outstanding secondary school educators. Governor Peter Shumlin presented the award to Sedore. Among the dignitaries on
hand to lend their congratulations were Vermont
Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe, Former
Secretary of Education Armando Vilaseca, and Barre
Mayor Thom Lauzon.

Eight Americorps volunteers hit the ground running


at the Montpelier Food Pantry on Monday, January 20
as part of their Martin Luther King Day of Service.
The volunteers cleaned, secured and stabilized shelving units, organized and packed hundreds of pounds of
non-perishable foods. What Americorps accomplished
in three hours would have taken Pantry volunteers a
few weeks to complete. The Montpelier Food Pantry
and FEAST, the senior citizen meal program, are programs of Just Basics Inc., a non-profit dedicated to
providing basic food needs through just and sustainable solutions. The MFP provides an emergency food
supply to residents of East Montpelier, Adamant,

day for local food shelves and especially for the families in the Green Mountain United Way region who
are food insecure. The 22nd Annual National

there are quite a few very good local-brand comedians


standing up and stealing the show. Thomas, like most
local comedians, has a regular day job and participates
in comedy nights or weekends at different venues in
this area. I got word that Espresso Bueno, a coffee
shop in Barre, was looking to start a comedy open
mike and soon I put together Laugh Local VT, my
comedy production enterprise. After much success
there, I took the show to Montpeliers American
Legion Post 3 on the first Friday of every month.
What better way to spend
Friday evening June 20 than
to take in the Central VT
Relay For Life event at
Montpelier High School?
Relay For Life is a 24-hour
team relay event first conceived and organized in the
mid-1980s by Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in
Tacoma, Wash. It has become the worlds largest
movement to end cancer. The theme for this years
Central VT Relay For Life was Light up the Night
and Finish the Fight. The American Cancer Society
estimates that more than 1.6 million new cancer cases
will occur this year. But, the Montpelier night was lit
up in unforgettable ways by a lengthy fireworks
display sponsored and performed by North Star
Fireworks, by the palpable glow of the participants
(55 teams and 312 members have raised over $41,000
so far) and by the not-to-be-missed lighting of the
luminaria.
The 118th Annual Meeting and Banquet of the
Spaulding High School Alumni Association was held
in the school gymnasium on Thursday, June 12th.
Approximately 300 alumni, members of the graduating class of 2014, and their family and friends were in
attendance.

JULY 2014

I can honestly say that


Central
Vermont
Academy has changed
my life. This year, I
had the opportunity to
go on a Mission Trip to
India. I learned what a
community was supposed to be like. For example, it was fascinating to me
to experience an entire community of up to 500 people, knowing each other by name and working together in harmony. The people embraced us and taught us
their culture. We actually learned their customs by
dressing like them and eating their different foods
which was so interesting. They eat with their hands!
Those of us who went put on a Health and Wellness
Seminar and an Evangelistic outreach program. During
this time I learned how to do public speaking in front
of hundreds of people. I learned life lessons of caring
for those less fortunate than myself. It was a heartchanging experience for me and those we served.
Over 75 people were baptized! Central Vermont
Academy is offering to the first seven new students
who register before July 10th, a $1500 scholarship for
an Academy student and $750 for an elementary student. I would encourage any young person to attend
this school. I thank God for CVA. by Ashley

chosen as the 2014 Grand
Marshal of the Northfield
Labor Day parade and festivities.
Shes
been
involved with Northfield
activities
for
years.
Marguerite and her late
husband moved to Northfield 26 years ago. It wasnt
long before the lure of the annual celebration beckoned. Marguerite began as the committees secretary,
ascending to the presidency after 10 years and remaining in that position for the next six, only stepping
aside this year when family obligations called.
Barre Elks Lodge #1535
was the recipient of a
$2,000 Beacon Grant
from Elks National
Foundation.
Beacon
Grants offer Lodges the
opportunity to develop
an ongoing, charitable,
Elks-led community project. Barre Lodge chose to
work with The Veterans Place in Northfield to help
meet and fulfill the needs of the veterans it serves. The
Veterans Placeis a transitional housing facility combined with assistive services for homeless veterans in
Central Vermont. Thepurpose of The Veterans Place
is to help Vermonts homeless veterans by providing
desperately needed resources in an all-in-one locale so
these veterans may regain their pride, reach their full
potential, and once again become contributing members of society. Lodge members purchased essential
items needed by veterans transitioning from The
Veterans Place into their own apartment. Sheets, pillows, pillowcases, hangers, bath mats, toiletries, towels, extension cords, glasses, cleaning supplies and
many other items were packaged into welcome
home kits.

A new memorial for


Private Richard Dodge of
Montpelier was dedicated
at Green Mount Cemetery
in Montpelier. Dodges
original marble tombstone had been broken
into several pieces. He
died February 6, 1907. He was a veteran of the
Mexican War, during which he was wounded five
times, and the Civil War, when he was wounded again.
Even after recovering from that wound, he still wasnt
done. He reenlisted in the Veteran Reserve Corp
shortly after the battle of Gettysburg, and again for
active duty in Company K of the 17th VT Infantry at
Petersburg, Virginia.
Several current SHS staff members greeted a dozen
former staff members, who were employed as faculty
and support staff (custodians, office staff, lunch personnel, and paraprofessionals) for at least 20 years at
SHS. The group was welcomed by longtime English
teacher Stefanie Ayers Cravedi, principals secretary
Elizabeth Bicknell, and assistant principal Brenda
Waterhouse. Those who were in attendance and recognized at the event included Laura Biggs, David
Chevalier, Mike Gilbert, Lisa Lemieux, Jeff Maher,
Brett Murphy, Lucille Ryan, Linda Black, George
Drew, Dan Rapalje, and Al Wilmott. A special thank
you ws extended to Mark Gherardi and Buttura &
Gherardi Granite Artisans for the donation of the granite plaque and its engraving.
U-32 High School student
Emily Packard, of East
Montpelier, kept the crowd
roaring with a dominant
night in the Late Model
division at Devils Bowl
Speedway on August 8th.
Packard swept her qualifying heat, the bonus semifeature, and the 30-lap main event to become the firstever Triple Crown winner in the division. The feature
win was her second of the season and tightened the
championship battle between herself and rivals Jamie
Fisher and Josh Masterson.

Curtis Smiley with the


Vermont Big Game Trophy
Club says a huge bear taken in
the 2013 hunting season is the
heaviest bear taken in Vermont
by bow and arrow since 1898,
and that it is a new record
according to skull measurements.
Kevin
Lamere,
of
Brownington, shot the bear on
October 5, 2013 with a bow
and arrow in Orleans County.
The skull of Lameres bear
scored 21 10/16 -- a new state
record in the Boone and Crockett Club as well as Pope
and Young Club records, said Smiley. I cannot overstate the significance of a black bear skull this large.

On Sunday, September 7th from 1-4


p.m., Rural Vermont and the Farm of

Washington. This free and familyfriendly event is the second in a
series of Rural Vermont events that
celebrate raw milk and a recent change to the law that
allows raw milk enthusiasts to pick up their milk at the
farmers market. This change creates opportunity,
access, and convenience. What better reason to celebrate?!

The Missing Picture

here were some horrible murderous regimes in the world during the 20th Century.
The most perversely horrible of them all is not the one youre
thinking of, though. It was the Khmer Rouge.
Pol Pots Khmer Rouge only ruled Cambodia for four years. But
the suffering and destruction it caused was incomprehensible. Plenty of other regimes killed people. The Khmer Rouge annihilated an
entire society.
On April 17, 1975, the Khmer Rouge army captured Phnom
Penh. Its goal wasnt to rule the city; it was to erase civilization.
Soldiers blew up all the banks and nancial records, killed businessmen, artists, clergymen, and intellectuals, and forced everyone
else to relocate to the countryside. This included The Missing Picture director Rithy Panh.
The Communist regimes plan was simple and insane: to rid
Cambodia of all money, private property, unfairness, class differences, modernity, urban life, religion, and outside inuence.
In practice, that meant taking people like 13-year-old Panh and

NORTHFIELD - New Years Eve Prime Rib Dinner & Dance at

his family who had never been outside of the city to rural rice
paddies and working them to death.
The government soldiers told the new farmers that they were being reeducated. But the real plan was to eliminate everyone who
remembered the way Cambodia used to be.
The new farmers were given preposterous production quotas and
were punished with less rice when they inevitably fell short. Since
western medicine was forbidden, weakened workers died of curable
diseases like malaria. Anyone who was caught shing or foraging
for food was executed. Panh watched his entire family including
both parents die in front of him.
Since the only video footage of the Khmer Rouge killing elds
is ofcial government propaganda, Panh lls in the missing picture
with reenactments of the events he witnessed featuring little clay
people that he carved. Panhs clay people are surprisingly sympathetic and expressive.
With his clay reenactments and his calm, stoic narration, Panh
lets us in on the ghastly policies of the regime that it never shared
with the outside world.
For example, the government soldiers separated the young children from their families because kids were the easiest to reeducate
completely. Soldiers taught the children about collectivism, Party

MONTPELIER- Vermont Humanities
Councils First Wednesdays Lecture
Series. On Thin Ice: Climate Chnage in

loyalty, and taught them how to torture by having them practice on


animals. The children were told that anyone outside the Party was
an enemy.
Panh witnessed a heart-wrenching incident where a 9-year-old
boy publicly accused his mother of picking mangoes and watched
proudly as his mom the enemy of the state was dragged to the
forest and shot.
The Missing Frame is an educational documentary for anyone
who isnt aware of the Khmer Rouge and its atrocities. However, the
lm is surprisingly light on intellectual and emotional substance.
Surely, Panh is angry or bitter or miserable, right? If he is, he
doesnt admit it. Surely, he learned something about humanity from
his experience. Based on the movie, he didnt.
Well I learned a few things. Firstly, dont trust a politician who
wants to take more of your money or weapons. Because without
money or weapons, a person is completely powerless in the face
of government oppression. Secondly, dont trust a politician who
justies his actions in the name of fairness. Because fairness is the
enemy of greatness, liberty, and human dignity.
The lesson of 1975 Cambodia is that a society can go from freedom to unspeakable oppression incredibly quickly if the people
arent vigilant.

HOLIDAY TIPS FOR PARENTS


The Holiday season is upon us & with it comes celebrations. As college students are coming
home on break & high school students are headed to holiday parties or dances, here are some
reminders for parents to help their young adults make safe choices.

HAVE A CONVERSATION
Talk to young adults about expectations & rules; at home & going out.
Communicate with other parents to share concerns regarding before & after parties as
well as transportation.

HAVE A PLAN
Know whos driving & where youth will be.
Set a time to be home or check in.
Wait up.
Encourage young adults to call home for a ride if they dont feel safe, with no blame.

HAVE CONSEQUENCES
Go over the expectations ahead of time & follow up on the consequences you have
discussed if agreements are broken.

DONT SUPPLY ALCOHOL TO YOUTH


The legal drinking age is 21, even in your own home. Vermont has Social Hosting Laws
that are strict.
Enabling underage drinking is dangerous, sends the wrong message, & is illegal.
Adults can be fined up to $2,000 or go to prison for 2 years for selling or giving alcohol to
a minor.
Allowing drinking in your home, even if you are there & taking away car keys, does not
make underage drinking safe!
One-third of underage drinking deaths involve auto crashes. The remaining two-thirds
involve alcohol poisoning, homicides, suicides, & unintentional injuries such as burns,
drowning, & falls.
Underage drinking can lead to risky behavior, poor decision making, sexual assaults &
violence.

HELP KEEP YOUTH SAFE

Roseville
Bookends
Q: I have a Roseville set of
bookends in the gardenia pattern. Do you have any idea of
its value?
-- Betty, Merrill, Wisc.
A: I found your bookends referenced
in
Warmans
Roseville
Pottery:
Identification & Price Guide
by Mark F. Moran and published by Krause Books. There
are at least six Roseville price
guides, but this one is my
favorite, and I feel it accurately reflects current values.
Moran believes your bookends in green are worth about
$140 for the pair.
***
Q: My dad collected autographed first editions, and I
have inherited his collection.
Among them are signed copies of Harper Lees To Kill a
Mockingbird,
Truman
Capotes In Cold Blood and
Gail Sheehys Passages.
Where can I market my
books?
-- Carole, Buffalo, N.Y.
A: One of the better rare-book
dealers is Baumans, 535
Madison Ave., New York, NY
10022; 212-751-0011; www.
baumansrarebooks.com.
Incidentally, Gail Sheehy has
just published her memoir,
Daring
My
Passages
(William Morrow Books,
$29.99). Passages created
quite a stir when it was first
published in 1976. In fact, the
Library of Congress has
named it as one of the 10 most

influential books of our time.


***
Q: I have been watching the
series about the Roosevelt
family on PBS. I found some
FDR campaign buttons in my
grannys sewing box. I would
like to know how much they
are worth.
-- Bill, Spokane, Washington
A: One of the better references is Warmans Political
Collectibles: Identification &
Price Guide by Dr. Enoch L.
Nappen and published by
Krause Books. It features dozens of FDR buttons in fullcolor. Dr. Nappen is a political
science professor at New
Jerseys Monmouth University
and a member of the American
Political Items Collectors
(APIC).
***
Q: I have three early American
paintings that I believe to be
quite valuable. Can you recommend an expert who can
help me determine values?
-- Stan, Hartford, Conn.
A: Jeffrey W. Cooley specializes in American painting and
might be able to help you. His

Holidays Can Put Pets in Danger


If youre a social media
user, youve doubtless seen
at least one message warning pet owners to keep their
pets away from certain
foods. Being able to circulate this information across
Facebook, Pinterest and
other sites is one of the great
benefits of online communication. Each year, Ive done
the same with this column,
warning my readers about potential dangers to pets during the
holidays (and throughout the year). And I definitely want to
keep this information circulating. So, here are many of the
common food hazards and other dangers that pet owners need
to be aware of. These can cause serious illness or death:
DOGS: Grapes and raisins (and currants), chocolate, macadamia nuts, avocado, onions, garlic, flavored chips, sugar-free
candies (or anything containing xylitol), rhubarb, tomato plant
leaves, raw bread dough, beer and wine, and liquor.
Keep dogs out of the trash and away from chicken or fish
bones, peach and plum pits, persimmon seeds, raw meat or
fish, moldy foods and old cigar or cigarette butts (tobacco is
very toxic). Lock up your marijuana stash too, please.
CATS: All of the above; plus, cats are very sensitive to the
following popular holiday plants: poinsettia, lily, mistletoe and
amaryllis. Ivy, azalea, philodendron, caladium and diffenbachia also are dangerous.
SMALL PETS: Hamsters, guinea pigs, etc., are very sensitive
to changes in diet, so avoid the temptation to give them extra
treats or holiday foods. They can suffer great harm if they
ingest any plastic, tinsel or other tempting items lying around.
Keep small pets in their cages during busy holiday get-togethers, and in a quiet spot where they wont be stressed.
If your pet exhibits any signs of distress, or is lethargic, vomiting, drooling heavily or otherwise acting abnormally, contact
your veterinarian right away.

Will the Internet kill your free community paper?


Did instant coffee kill coffee?
New technologies change many things. But not
everything. You may tweet, blog, surf, shop, or search
online but you continue to read your free community
paper. You just proved it.
Readership of free community papers is now higher
than paid daily papers, and continues to grow. Rather
than being replaced by instant media, your local free
community paper has become an important part of our
neighborhood.
The reason, which sometimes is not heard because of
all the noise about the Internet, is pretty obvious: your
free community paper does what the Internet doesnt.
We promote connections at a local level. Free papers join
readers and advertisers in ways digital media dont.
In fact, the local content and power of your free paper
makes advertising even more effective. We are the number
one medium for driving purchases. Thats important in
every product category.
Including coffee.

Keith Rocco Enters ACT American Racer Challenge

Keith Rocco from Meriden, CT is a 2010 NASCAR National


Champion, has three (3) NASCAR SK Modified championships at
the Waterford Speedbowl, two (2) ACT type Late Model
Championships at the Speedbowl, and too numerous feature event
wins in the heart of Modified country, Connecticut, to list. His
next challenge is to head to the New Smyrna World Series of
Asphalt Racing and enter the American Canadian Tour (ACT)
American Racer Challenge Series on Monday and Tuesday,
February 16-17, 2015.
My Late Model car owner, Scott Fern (Wilbraham, MA) is a
big fan of ACT Late Model racing. That is how I got started in the
fender type cars a few years ago. We have had a pretty busy
modified schedule chasing NASCAR points for the past few years,
although we tried to get to a couple ACT shows, but weather and
other issues kind of put that on the back burner. This mid-winter
trip to Florida and the American Racer Challenge Cup is going to
be a great break. We are looking forward to our first ACT event,
said Rocco.
Rocco has won some races in the Modified division at New
Smyrna over the years, but he will face a new challenge with veteran tour drivers from both the ACT US and ACT Quebec organizations. Both 2014 defending champions, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr.
(Pole), Hudson, NH and Alex Labbe, St-Albert, QC have experience at New Smyrna Speedway. There will be plenty of competition from the growing list of drivers who have entered. Former
ACT Champions Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Dover, NH and Donald
Theetge from Quebec City will join Pole and Labbe. Between
them they have six (6) ACT Championships.
This should be fun and just what our Late Model team needs
to see how competitive we can be in the full fendered car. I was
glad to see that ACT is moving into Connecticut with the recent
announcement that they will race at Thompson Speedway
Motorsports Park. Hopefully, we can have some success and find
time to race a few more Late Model races in 2015, concluded
Rocco.

Winter Fat Biking Gets a Grip in Vermont

Vermonters hottest new way to enjoy the cold: Fat Bikes.


Weve seen exponential growth in Fat Bike riders coming to
Vermont from all over the East Coast, said Tim Tierney,
Executive Director of Kingdom Trails in East Burke. A few years
ago, only a few companies made Fat Bikes. Today it would be
hard to find a manufacturer who doesnt. That growth really demonstrates that folks love to pedal and Fat Bikes appeal to a large
and growing number of people. Its easy to get hooked.
With their extra-large tires, wide rims and unorthodox dimensions, Fat Bikes are specifically designed to traverse snowy
trailsand any terrain that would mire ordinary bicycles. Extra
tire tread adds grip and prevents the wheel from sinking into soft
surfaces such as sand and snow. Fat Bikes require lower tire pressure than regular mountain bikes10-15 psi or even lower. That
significant squish reduces the need for suspension and allows the
tire to float over surfaces rather than dig in.
Vermonts vibrant biking culture has plenty of room for this
new addition to the trails, and Fat Bike events are popping up
throughout the state. On Dec. 7, the Catamount Outdoor Family
Center hosted the first annual Global Fat Bike Day, the official
kick off of the Le Grand Fat Tour. Fat Bike enthusiasts enjoyed
demos, races and a scavenger hunt.
The Le Grand Fat Tour is a six-event series that spans the
Quebec-Vermont border. The tour continues from now until
March with events in Stowe and East Burke in Vermont; and

that have embraced the
sport. This year weve received overwhelming support from the
riding community and businesses eager to get involved.
For people who are curious about the strange-looking bikes, the
Resolve to Revolve Fat Bike Demo Day will be held Jan. 1 at
Kingdom Trails in East Burke. The truly committed can find
weekly rides with the Fat Wednesday evening group at the
Catamount Outdoor Family Center in Williston, starting Jan. 7.
In February, the Fat festivities continue with Ride, Glide &
Rawhide; a Valentines Day race at Kingdom Trails that celebrates
several winter disciplines. On Feb. 22, Fat Bikes will make their
debut at the 70th edition of the Stowe Derby. One hundred Fat
Bike riders will navigate Stowes hillside terrain and sprint down
the scenic rec path before crossing the finish line at the center of
Stowe village.

Holiday
Safety
Were at the
height of the
h o l i d a y
season, and
By Samantha Mazzotta
life probably
is pretty busy.
But as you prepare for get-togethers and dinners,
remember to put safety first. Below are a few
things to remember that will help you to be
prepared for emergencies and keep your household
safe:
Ahead of a family gathering, move toxic
cleaning supplies and other chemicals to the
garage, up and out of reach of children. Clearly
label any unlabeled bottles so that nothing is
confused with a food or beverage item.
Make sure a fire extinguisher is kept in the
kitchen, and in any room where a fireplace is lit.
It should be visible and not too near the heat
source.
Tape a list of emergency contact numbers
near the phone -- not just 911, but the veterinarian,
poison control center and family contacts. Put
these contacts into your cellphone contacts list as
well.
Keep candles away from combustible items,
and place them well out of reach of children.
Use only non-combustible or flame-retardant
decorations on Christmas trees.
Avoid small decorations that look like candy
to children, who could choke on them.
If using space heaters, follow safety rules
closely: dont leave them unattended; dont drape
clothes or other items over them; and dont let
kids or seniors sit too close.
The National Association of Certified Home
Inspectors offers more safety tips at: www.nachi.
org/holidaysafety.htm
HOME TIP: Close heating registers in unused
rooms and shut the door to keep visitors out.
Youll save energy and improve safety during
gatherings.

By JoAnn Derson
Want to keep your pants from creasing on
the hanger? Grab an empty paper-towel tube,
and slit it down the side. When you slip it over
the bottom of the hanger, it creates a wide
curve for the pants to lie across, and no more
crease! -- M.U. in Colorado
To prevent candle wax from sticking to a
candleholder, swipe the inside with a little
olive oil. Itll do the trick!

Just in time for soup season (and my new


years resolutions), heres a great fat swap:
Drain and rinse two cups of white beans and
puree with a cup of no-sodium vegetable
broth. You can use this as a thickener in place
of heavy cream for soups and stews. -- JoAnn
Experts say that those who keep track of their
nutrition and exercise are more likely to keep
it up. This can be as simple as a pencil and
notebook paired with a calorie guidebook, or
one of the many great apps for your smartphone. In any case, set yourself up for success
this year. You deserve it!
Cutting corn off the cob can be tricky business, but you only need to recruit the right
equipment. The next time youre making corn
for dinner, grab a Bundt pan. The corn cob gets
set upright in the center, and when you cut
down, the kernels fall right into the pan on all
sides. -- A.S. in Texas
A can openers crevices can be cleaned by
opening a length of waxed paper. Kitchen
scissors can be sharpened by folding a piece of
aluminum foil and cutting through it with the
scissors.
