Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing Registered Dietician Janis Belforti (left) and Lydia Lewis, who has been an activities assistant volunteer since 1996, were recognized by VHCA with Outstanding Caregivers Awards.

VHCA and Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing Honor Employees

Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing recently held a ceremony to recognize the three employees honored by the Vermont Health Care Association (VHCA). VHCA presented Outstanding Caregivers Awards to Registered Dietician Janis Belforti, Dietician of the Year, long-time volunteer Lydia Lewis, Volunteer of the Year and Crystal Sayers, LNA, Secretary of the Year. VHCA represents over 90 nursing homes, residential care homes and assisted living facilities. The awards are given to employees who demonstrate dedication and commitment to their residents, facility and profession, as well as loyalty, teamwork, and longevity. Montpelier resident Lydia Lewis has been an activities assistant volunteer since 1996. In accepting her award, she said, It is the greatest thrill for me to be in a place that I love so much. My father always said it was better to give than to receive, and I have given all that I can from my heart. LNA Crystal Sayers lives in East Montpelier. In nominating her for this award, a nurse manager and charge nurse wrote: Our Residents love her. She has developed a trust, a bond with families she comes in contact with and knows what they need to hear in difficult times. It is this profound respect that she shows for all, her ability to be compassionate in difficult situations and the dignity she demonstrate for all she comes in contact with that makes her a very special person and worthy of this accolade. Morrisville resident Janis Belforti holds two masters degrees, one in nutrition and one in education. I am elated to know that my co-workers think so highly of me. For me, this is not a job. It just makes me happy to make a difference in the lives of all of our residents.

Bob Welch has joined the staff of WDEV Radio. Welch is the new host of Dinner Jazz and Score, and the in-studio producer for live sports broadcasts. He succeeds Lee Kittell, who was promoted to Program Director upon the retirement of Jack Donovan. Were pleased to have Bob on our team, said WDEV General Manager Eric Michaels. He has a true passion for the medium and for the importance of live local and relevant radio. The 33-year-old Welch is a native of West Boylston, Massachusetts; he came to Vermont to attend Lyndon State College, and has lived here ever since. The radio bug bit me in college, he said. I was in school to be a meteorologist, but I couldnt get past the calculus. Welch got his first taste of radio at the Colleges student station, WWLR. He began

Mike Bertrand of Montpelier has recently taken over as the GOPs Executive Director. The former Executive Director, Tayt Brooks, stepped down so he can focus his time and energy on helping Kurt Wrights campaign for Mayor of Burlington. Pat McDonald, Chair of the Vermont Republican Party, lavished praise on Brooks, who served as Vermonts Commissioner of Housing and Community Affairs before joining the VT GOP. Tayt Brooks is a top-caliber administrator with a very keen political mind, and we will miss having him around, said McDonald. He has been a steady hand on the tiller for us, and I know great things lie ahead for him. I wish him well. Bertrand, 41, served in several different positions during the Douglas Administration: Commissioner of Labor and Industry; Special Assistant and Deputy Legal Counsel to the

working professionally during college, at WSTJ in Saint Johnsbury and as a weekend host at WDEV. I pestered Jack Donovan for a month or so, and he finally let the kid in, Welch recalled. He continued to pursue a radio career after graduating from college. Most recently, he was the midday news anchor for WSTJ. His move to WDEV began on the Internet: Im on Facebook, and Lee Kittell is one of my Facebook friends, Welch said. One day he sent me a private message, Call me as soon as you can. The call led to a job interview: Eric drove all the way to the Dunkin Donuts in St. Johnsbury to interview me. We talked for a couple of hours, and I got the job. Dinner Jazz can be heard weeknights from 6:30pm to 9pm. Score, a unique combination of sports talk and rock music, follows from 9pm to midnight. WDEV is part of the Radio Vermont Group; it can be heard on 96.1 FM and 550 AM, plus 96.5 FM in Barre and 101.9 FM from Island Pond in the Northeast Kingdom.

Governor; Deputy Secretary of Administration; Deputy Commissioner of Insurance; and lastly Commissioner of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration. Bertrand grew up in Montpelier, and attended Penn State University and Fordham Law School. Prior to joining the Douglas team in 2003, he practiced law and also served as Assistant Clerk of the Vermont House of Representatives. Since leaving state government in January of this year, he has been working as a consultant in Montpelier. Im thrilled that we were able to get Mike Bertrand to come run the partys operations during such an important time for us, McDonald continued. Mike knows Vermont, he knows government, and he knows the issues. Hes the perfect fit as we move into 2012, which is shaping up to be one of the most important election years in my lifetime.

Because of the United Ways experience in mobilizing the community to meet needs, Green Mountain United Way is recognized as an organization with the ability to bring people together and collaboratively work to improve discouraging and devastating situations. This has been proven time and again in many instances especially during and after the floods of May and August 2011. It is a known fact that no one organization can do all that needs to be done in times of crisis. Each entity that GMUW has worked with these past few months, and on an ongoing basis, be it federal, state, municipal, business or other non-profit, has its own skills and expertise. It is amazing what can be and has been accomplished when working together. Here are a few examples of organizations and businesses that GMUW has been aligned with as a result of the flood: Vermont 2-1-1, a program of the nine Vermont United Ways, took vital information for the flood-affected people and provided it to the federal government so that federal aid could come to VT Retired Senior Volunteer Program staff and volunteers, along with those from other non-profits and individuals contributed hundreds of man hours needed to keep the Central VT Flood Recovery Center open National Life Group loaned computers and ReSOURCE of Barre donated furniture and other items for the Center Northfield Savings Bank chose GMUW to distribute $100,000 for immediate relief needs, which have been granted for help with cleanup, food, mental health counseling, to replace prescriptions, etc. Everyones support is so appreciated and with it we are able to play a key role when disaster strikes. For more information about Green Mountain United Way and how it serves our local people, visit www.gmunitedway.org or call them at 802-229-9532.

Green Mountain United Way Mobilizes the Community


James Michael Delena will have a great story to tell. His parents, Katie and Jordan, were high school sweethearts in Northeld. Dad, a Norwich graduate, is a Black Hawk pilot serving in Afghanistan. They live on base at Fort Campbell, Tennessee but Mom and Dad wanted their son born in Northeld surrounded by family. The plan was to stay with Moms parents, but their house fell victim to Irenes oodwaters, so instead they are staying at her grandparents (who are now rst-time GREAT grandparents!). Dad arrived in Vermont from Afghanistan on Veterans Day and James followed soon after on Tuesday, November 15. He weighed 7lb/9oz and was 20.5 long. Little James is the rst grandchild for both families and is much loved and celebrated. He looks just like his daddy who returns to Afghanistan on November 27. The family will be reunited at Fort Campbell in March when Dads tour of duty is over. We wish the Delena family all the very best...and we thank both Mom and Dad for their brave service and dedication. Happy Thanksgiving to the big, happy Northeld family celebrating beautiful little James Michael Delena and his parents.

Initiators of the NFNCW (Northfield Falls Neighborhood Crime Watch) determined that there was a tangible need for the program due to an increase in thefts, break-ins, vandalism, and other criminal activity in the area. The group held its first meeting on November 3rd and a second meeting on November 17th. Meeting participants discussed known problems with Brian Hoar of the Northfield Police Department. Officer Hoar acts as the liaison between the NFNCW and law enforcement. Officer Hoar has also been instrumental in providing guidance to the NFNCW as the program evolves. The NFNCW continues to actively recruit any Northfield Falls residents who care about their community and are willing to do what they can to assist in this endeavor. It must be recognized that the prevention of crime is a responsibility which must be shared between law enforcement and private citizens. As one meeting participant stated, We cant depend upon the police for everything we need just as we cant depend upon teachers to raise our children. The next meeting of the NFNCW will be held on Monday, December 5, 2011 at 7pm at the St. Jacob Orthodox Church (in the vestry/basement) in Northfield Falls. The NFNCW may be contacted for further information at fallswatch@trans-video.net

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) received national recognition for its innovations in roadway safety technology that helps alert both motorists and highway crews to changing weather and roadway conditions. ITS America, the nations leading transportation technology organization, awarded VTrans second place in its coveted Best New Innovative Practices award category for 2011. VTrans was recognized for its Road Weather Information Stations (RWIS) that are now being used at 24 locations throughout the state. The top innovators in the ITS industry were recognized in the 2011 Best of ITS Awards, said Scott Belcher, president and CEO of ITS America. This is the leading awards program in the country on transportation innovation, and each of the winners is truly propelling transportation innovation forward. For the past six years, VTrans has been installing sensors and cameras that instantly monitor not only snowfall and visibility conditions at known trouble spots, but also monitor real time data about roadway temperatures, humidity and wind conditions that help road crews know when the road surface begins to ice over. The instant information not only aids road crews in knowing when to target certain areas, but the equipment can automatically activate a series of electronic roadside message boards that alert motorists about the changing road conditions. VTrans was specifically recognized for this instant ability to warn motorists of adverse road and weather conditions as soon as they are detected. These tools help make our roadways safer, said VTrans Secretary Brian Searles. Not only can we quickly warn motorists of changing roadway conditions, but the equipment reduces our response time so that we can improve road conditions faster. VTrans this summer installed six new Road

VTrans Recognized for High Tech Winter Safety Efforts

Weather Information Stations at locations along Interstate 91 in Westminster, Weathersfield, Thetford, Newbury and St. Johnsbury, as well as along Route 103 in Mount Holly. The agency currently has a total of 24 stations statewide, with a goal of eventually expanding to 60 stations. Aside from their various locations along Interstate 89 and 91, Road Weather Information Stations also are located at the Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport, as well as along Route 4 in both Fair Haven and Mendon, Route 7 in Brandon and Route 9 in Woodford. We have placed roadside message boards that convey information to motorists in strategic locations, said VTrans ITS Program Manager Robert T. White. We not only use them to display speed and weather advisories, but when a crash occurs, we use them to let drivers know to expect delays. The equipment even tracks average vehicle speeds so VTrans can remotely monitor how traffic is behaving during storm events, which is a good indicator of road conditions. Understanding traffic behavior is key to knowing how well snow-removal efforts are working, Searles said. The data helps us become more efficient and save money because it takes the guess work out of where and when to deploy not only manpower but salt and sand. Funding for the six new stations installed this summer was made available as part of a federal grant obtained by Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. Motorists who have not yet left their office or home can better prepare for winter travel by accessing road and weather information over the Internet by visiting www.511vt.com before they get behind the wheel. Information available includes the most recent photos of road conditions taken by the RWIS equipment.

Governor Peter Shumlin and Secretary of State Jim Condos announced last week that public members are needed to fill vacancies on professional licensing boards. I appreciate the civic service these licensed and public members provide to the state of Vermont; we couldnt do our jobs without them, said Governor Shumlin. Their service goes largely unnoticed, yet they are doing important work every day that benefits all Vermonters. The Office of Professional Regulation (OPR), a division of the Secretary of States Office, is responsible for the licensing and regulation of 45 professions and 56,000 licensees in the State of Vermont, such as nurses, pharmacists, chiropractors and funeral directors. OPR protects the public from unqualified or incompetent individuals among the various professions. It does this by making sure that all applicants meet the requirements for licensure and by responding to complaints of unprofessional conduct against those who are already licensed. According to Secretary Jim Condos, The public members on these boards are essential. They offer an important perspective that comes from outside the profession itself when making the decisions that helps protect the public. The authority to regulate many professions rests with a licensing board supported by OPR. The boards are groups of Vermonters appointed

Public Members Needed to Fill Vacancies on Professional Licensing Boards

n n n

by the Governor to set the standards for the profession and to decide cases of unprofessional conduct. These boards are made up of a majority of licensed members of the profession, along with non-licensed (public) members. There are currently several public member vacancies for the following licensing boards: - Allied mental health - Chiropractic - Land Surveying - Optometry - Pharmacy - Private Investigators and Security - Psychology - Radiologic Technology Chris Winters, the Director of the Office of Professional Regulation, added, A good public member can make a huge difference. The law calls for a mix of public and licensed members on these boards for a reason. No experience is necessary. Individuals who are interested in giving back to their State and community by helping to protect the public are encouraged to apply. Most boards meet on a monthly basis for no more than six hours. If you are interested, please apply through the Governors office. Call 828-3333 or send a letter of interest and the application form found here: http://governor.vermont.gov/boards-and-commissions.

People who are happily married have lower blood pressure than those who are single or unhappy in their marriage. Participants in the study wore portable monitors that recorded blood pressures at random intervals. Happily married people scored on average four points lower than single adults. The study also revealed that blood pressures for married adults, especially the ones in happy marriages, dipped more during sleep than single people. Research shows a greater risk for cardiovascular problems among people whose blood pressure remains high at night than for those whose pressure dips.

Greater Barre Democrats Donate to Shoe Drive for Flood Victims

Three sharp minds with different perspectives shared what they see in health care reform with members of the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce on November 18th. Policy analyst CENTRAL VERMONT Jeanne Keller of Keller & Fuller Associates, state CHAMBER OF COMMERCE insurance commissioner Steve Kimbell, and Green Mountain Care board member Con Hogan weighed in on the future of health care in Vermont. All agreed that Vermont is vigorously pursuing universal health care for residents. All said or suggested that it wont be 100 percent government sponsored and financed in the near future. In between, there was plenty of uncertainty and speculation. The meeting was presented by Union Institute & University and co-sponsored by DMS Machining & Fabrication. Keller is clearly focused on the Exchange, the insurance buying pool mandated by federal legislation, but devised and governed by the state. For Keller and for businesses key questions are: will it have only a single insurance company or multiple carriers; will it be the only source for individuals and small-group insurance purchasing? Will small be defined as fewer than 50 employees or fewer than 100 employees? Assembling the answers to these questions in various combinations yields markedly different market scenarios. Kimbell said Vermonts general assembly created Green Mountain Care to contain costs and to provide, as a public good, publicly financed health care coverage for all Vermont residents. As commissioner, Kimbell said, its his job to implement the law

Healthcare Reform: Lots of Unknowns

as best he can. He likened health care to electricity, a public good that no one should be without. Once available only to the rich or those in urban areas, electricity came to be viewed as important to every resident. Expansion was mandated, and providers were regulated. Thats how Vermont views health care, he added, and the Green Mountain Board will act much like the public service board. Hogan, a veteran of corporate life and government service, has been appointed to the five-member care board. He is all about the numbers. Hogan said the board would look at pricing, financing and performance measures. The numbers have to work. He noted that the numbers have many variables, many as yet unknown. At this point, the only solid information is the quality and diversity of the board members themselves, and their shared belief that Vermont health care services can be molded into a system that works affordably. Member attitudes ranged from ardent supporters to skeptics who believe further government intervention will reduce quality and inflate costs more than ever. To be continued The next breakfast in the Chambers issues series will also be held in the Capitol Plaza Hotel & Conference Center on Friday, Dec. 2. It is being co-sponsored by Bellavance Trucking. Betsy Bishop, president of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce will address a variety of pending legislation with potential impacts on business.

The Central Vermont Economic Development Corporation held its 34th Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 13th at the Capitol Plaza in Montpelier. Approximately 120 local business leaders heard from four of the administrations key economic development professionals. Lawrence Miller, Secretary of the VT Agency of Commerce & Community Development, and Pat Moulton Powden, Deputy Secretary of ACCD spoke about economic growth with the business incentives and programs their department has to offer. Steve Cook, Deputy Commissioner of the VT Department of Tourism & Marketing and Editor of Vermont Life magazine commented on keeping tourism vibrant and growing in Vermont. Annie Noonan, Commissioner of the Department of Labor offered remarks on Vermonts labor force and the effects of Hurricane Irene on jobs. Concluding the meeting, the Honorable Governor Peter Shumlin spoke and assisted President Bev Pembroke Hill in presenting four awards to outstanding businesses in Central Vermont. The Presidents Award was presented to Barry T. Chouinard of Northfield in recognition of his leadership and many contributions to the community, Central Vermont and the State of Vermont. The Leo C. Laferriere Community Service Award was presented to Amy Mattinat of Auto Craftsmen in Montpelier. The Community Service Award is given in honor of Leo Laferriere a founding Director, First President and lifelong advocate of economic, environmental, education and recreational initiatives in Central Vermont. The CVEDC Small Business of the Year Award was presented to Valerie Beaudet of the Fire House Ladder 1 Grill in Barre. In recognition of its sales growth, job growth and community service within the past three years. Lastly, a special award and thank you was made to WDEV Radio, VT for their exceptional service to the community during Hurricane Irene. CVEDC made a donation to the Green Mountain United Way in their name for flood relief. Roger Hill, Lee Kittell, Tom Beardsley, and Eric Michaels were in attendance to accept the award.

As fall turns into winter, people in Vermont and across the country buy or gather firewood to heat their homes, campsites, and cabins, and many arent aware that moving firewood more than 50 miles can increase the risk of new invasive pest infestations that kill trees. A recent study, Economic Impacts of Non-Native Forest Insects in the Continental United States by Aukema et al. estimates that the costs of damages associated with these pest infestations in both urban and rural areas are nearly $1.7 billion in local government expenditures and approximately $830 million in lost residential property values totaling more than $2.5 billion dollars annually. According to this research, more than 450 non-native forest insects are established in the United States. Many of the insects featured in this report, including the emerald ash borer, red bay ambrosia beetle, and thousand cankers disease, are known to move frequently on infested firewood. Other pests that move on firewood have cost local and federal authorities tens of millions of dollars to control and eradicate in just the past five years. Within Vermont, the invasive pests most likely to be spread by moving firewood are the Asian longhorned beetle, emerald ash borer, and oak wilt. Additionally, if people bring firewood from other states into Vermont, infestations of other damaging invasive pests not yet present can occur. There are restrictions on bringing firewood into Vermont State Parks and Green Mountain National Forest campgrounds. Firewood brought into these public campgrounds must be from local sources or kiln dried and in its original, labeled package: http://www.vtfpr.org/Firewood/index.cfm. This new study tells us that when people move firewood, they could unwittingly cause millions of dollars of damage to their communities, including their own properties, said Leigh Greenwood, Dont Move Firewood campaign manager, The Nature Conservancy. Fortunately, people can stop the spread of these destructive and costly pests, and save their community trees by buying locally harvested firewood and by communicating this message to their friends and neighbors. Invasive insects and diseases can even lurk in dry and seasoned firewood, hidden in the layers of wood beneath the bark, which makes them difficult to detect. While these pests cannot move far on their own, when people move this firewood that harbors them, U.S. Forest Service officials in Vermont are encouraging the public to purchase Christmas tree permits should they be interested in a five-dollar tree for the holidays. Christmas trees may be cut on the Green Mountain National Forest, subject to the following conditions: - A Christmas Tree Removal permit must be purchased ($5.00) at one of the Forest Service district offices located in Rutland, Middlebury, Manchester Center, or Rochester, Vermont. - The permit must be attached to the tree before transporting it from the site where it was cut. - The permit holder is responsible for knowing that the tree comes from Forest Service land. Maps are available when you purchase your permit. - Trees over 20 feet tall are not designated for cutting by the Christmas tree permit. - Stump height of trees cut should be six inches or less above

Protect Vermonts Trees: Buy Local Firewood

they unwittingly enable these pests to start an infestation far from their current range. Past invaders have devastated native species of trees such as the American chestnut, hemlock, and American elm tree species that had been part of American forests and city streets for centuries until the invasion of foreign pests decimated them. Burning a wood fire in the winter has a lot of different uses a primary heat source, a place for a family gathering, or part of a romantic evening, said Greenwood. When firewood comes from a well managed local forest, its a great alternative to using fossil fuels like oil and natural gas. Our campaign is focused on educating people how they can help protect local trees and communities by not risking the accidental movement of insects and diseases that can wipe out entire forests that when buying firewood for these purposes. By buying locally harvested wood, individuals can help protect themselves and their communities from decreases in property values, the high expense of removing diseased or infested trees, and the loss of attractive landscapes. Another good reason to buy wood locally is that in many regions of the country, it is illegal to move firewood over county or state lines. Following are tips from the Dont Move Firewood campaign: - Obtain firewood near the location where you will burn it that means the wood was cut in a nearby forest, in the same county, or a maximum of 50 miles from where youll have your fire. - Dont be tempted to get firewood from a remote location just because the wood looks clean and healthy. It could still harbor tiny insect eggs or microscopic fungal spores that will start a new and deadly infestation of forest pests. - Aged or seasoned wood is not considered safe to move, but commercially kiln-dried wood is a good option if you must transport firewood. - If you have already moved firewood, and you need to dispose of it safely, burn it soon and completely. Make sure to rake the storage area carefully and also burn the debris. In the future, buy from a local source. - Tell your friends and others about the risks of moving firewood no one wants to be responsible for starting a new pest infestation. the soil. - Christmas trees shall not be cut in active timber sales, wilderness areas, campgrounds, picnic areas, or within 25 feet of any Forest Service, town, or state maintained road. - Only one Christmas tree permit will be issued per household per year. - Permits are not refundable. - Trees obtained under the Christmas tree permit may not be resold.

Vermonters can learn about tree care and explore urban and community forestry issues through a statewide course this winter. The eight-week course combines practical skills and knowledge needed to plan landscapes and plant and care for trees in public green spaces. The Stewardship of the Urban Landscape (SOUL) program is offered through the Urban and Community Forestry Program, a collaborative effort of University of Vermont (UVM) Extension and the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, and helps build volunteers capacities to lead and participate in forestry-specific projects in their communities. The course, which will be taught through Vermont Interactive Television (VIT), runs from Feb. 11 through May 12 and includes eight Wednesday evening and three Saturday sessions.

Act 153 Mandates Should be Removed


9 3.84


Editor: Vermont's local school boards represent the entire state, and as such when we speak as a group we can have a tremendous amount of influence on Vermont's state wide policies. In 2010 a change in education law known as Act 153 was passed into law. We believe there are unnecessary and even counterproductive mandates contained in the parts of that act that deal with Regional Education Districts (RED) and consolidation as well as expanded supervisory union duties. We have found these mandates will interfere with our ability to provide the highest possible quality education to our community's children and young adults at a price the community will find acceptable. It is not our position that any individual provision of Act 153 is inherently bad: our position is that all areas of Act 153 regarding REDs and superintendent authorities should be made voluntary. The three districts/towns that make up the Orange North Supervisory Union district have already moved to consolidated staff contracts, centralized purchasing, SU directed curriculum development and enhancement and more; but we have been able

to make these determinations on a case by case basis thus assuring the end product is one that works for the students and towns of Orange, Washington and Williamstown. We are pro-education. We understand there are educational leaders in the state who see the provisions of Act 153 as invaluable tools that will help parents and communities provide a great education for those entrusted to their care, and we do not wish to take those tools away. We would like the opportunity to: - Pursue cooperative ventures with other school districts without losing our own local district or being forced into a one size fits all Regional Education District model. - Explore avenues of enhancing curricular offerings to our students in a manner that allows us to be nimbly responsive to the needs of our community's youth as opposed to meeting the regulatory and paperwork requirements of the state. - We would like to make these decisions at the local level ... one size will never fit all. The Williamstown School Board invites you to join us in actively lobbying to change the wording contained in Act 153 (2010) and subsequent regulations to remove the mandates and make them entirely voluntary. Boards can help by contacting the state education board, members of the House and Senate education committees and your local state legislators directly. Williamstown School Board of Directors Alvin Avery, Chair Rama O.A. Schneider, Vice Chair Laura Thygesen, Clerk Milan Miller Bill Corrow

Fractals of Change By Tom Evslin

omebody else has to pay for the stent placed in one of the arteries of my heart. Apparently thats how Medicare works; its not a pretty or sustainable story. Two doctors did a great job of threading a catheter from my wrist to my heart, finding the more than 90% blockage of a big artery, puffing out the artery with a balloon, and propping it open with a stent. They worked on me directly for about two hours not including prep work, followup, and explaining to Mary that I was still alive and what theyd done to me. I went home that night; a week later I could jog three times as far as before the operation, hike uphill faster, and in general have much more energy. The only disappointment is that I didnt immediately start winning at racquetball and tennis. Last week the doctor bill came (havent received the hospital bill yet). The charge for the two doctors was $9,690, not at all too much from my PoV and in line with what youd pay lawyers or other highly trained professionals. I only owe $188.77; sounds like a great insurance program until you read on. Turns out Medicare pays just $755.06; the balance of $8746.17 is called MEDICARE ADJ. In other words, because Im covered by Medicare, the docs have to forgive most of their bill. What this really means, of course, is that other patients are charged more to make up for what we codgers dont have to pay. Our Medicare premiums dont

begin to cover the high cost of treating people in Medicare-eligible age brackets, so all you young people get stuck with the bill. The doctors list price would be lower if they didnt know that a high percentage of their bills would be adjusted. Sometimes (NOT in my case) doctors stint on care for those with Medicare coverage because they know they will be grossly underpaid for it. So government pretends to pay for our medical care with an insurance policy and makes us happy by charging us too low a premium for the amount of care we receive. Without ever appearing on the governments books, there is a cost shift to other patients so the cost of medical care for everyone else goes up. When everyone else complains that the cost of medical care is too high, governments solution (or at least some politicians solution) is to say that a Medicare-like program should cover them, too. But, if everyone is covered by a government program, therell be no one left to pay the doctors the amount that government shorts them. Well really have to pay for our care through either taxes or premiums. Either the level of care goes way down, premiums get very high, or we pay lots more taxes; theres no free lunch when theres no one else to pick up the check. Before we extend Medicare, we need to recognize that it is essentially an unsustainable fraud of which we old people are the beneficiaries.

here re so many things that are happening in our world today, that it is hard to isolate one topic to think about and discuss. I still think that lots of our problems are really made worse by the media. If you keep hearing how bad everything is, you finally begin to search your own mind and try to figure out which problem is yours! Maybe if we didnt hear that everything is in the toilet, you wouldnt know and life would go on. All I heard all summer was how impossible it was for anyone to find a job. Well, on Cape Cod almost every store, restaurant and hotel/motel had a sign in their window that said they were looking for help. I know these werent the jobs that pay a six-figure salary, but they did pay and were a lot better than no job at all. Of course, I did hear a man say that he wouldnt even consider taking such a menial job and that unemployment and welfare was easier and paid a lot more! So much for actually wanting a job! Because I am so old these days, I no longer work, and maybe life is a lot less stressful if I just dont think too hard about a guy like that. But I do have some thoughts about one of our interesting and much talked about issues of today. What do they mean that the post office is about to go bankrupt? And if they are able to stay alive it will be because they have shut down all the little post-offices around the country. If you think that I have some thoughts about this, you are absolutely right! Before I actually begin, I want to remind you that I am so old that I remember when a stamp for a first class letter cost 3 cents and post card stamps were a penny. Not only that, you got mail delivery, on time and at least 6 days a week. I say almost because at Christmas time the mail was often delivered on Sunday, too! I know that the post-office officials blame the internet and email etc. for most of their problems, and they are not 100% correct but they are certainly not wrong either. When was the last time you received a friendly letter or card by snail mail? Truthfully, I cant even remember the last time. But I also dont think that is just the internet. The cost of a stamp is so high now that I think that many people find it just too expensive to send their mail that way. Once you buy the card (now outrageously expensive) and a stamp, you

have made a considerable investment. And I wont even mention the cost of sending a package these days, and not just by parcel post either. If I was going to try and streamline the U.S. postal service, I wouldnt keep raising the cost of stamps and then wondering why people were no longer using their services like they used to do. I think that my first thing to do would be to raise the cost of junk mail. Every day, when we get our mail, except for bills, what we get is a large group of junk that we never even look at. There is too much and most of it was not requested either. And what do I do? I throw it out. What makes this junk mail even more annoying is that I have to pay to get rid of it! I know that they probably cant stop it all together, but perhaps if they charged more to send it, it would put more money in their bottom line and perhaps cut it down for us consumers. So here we are with so many conundrums. Friendly and kindly mail is now very expensive, and we are being encouraged to go out and shop until we drop! If we dont, then we are part of our economic problem. He or she who sits home, shopping on the computer, finds that it is so much easier and not only that, a great many sellers are now sending you your purchases for free! If you go out, and here in Vermont we are not talking about a short jog, the cost of gas raises the cost of your purchases a lot. With just these several small issues, you can see that life has become a conundrum. If you try and do the right thing and follow the golden rule, you are one of the few. Take and get yours appears to be the watch word of the day. Oh well, I guess that us old folks have to just keep trying to spread what we were taught when we were young. And that is that you have to work and try to be a contributing member of our American society. So, turn your TV and radios off and dont contribute to the belief that if you complain loud enough someone will step up and care for you. I think that our parents and grandparents must be turning around in their graves if they know how we are living today. Dig down and show your children and grandchildren what being an American should be. Someone who works for what they want and need, and not one who just sits back and takes.

Senate Report:

n n n

by Senator Bill Doyle he Liberty party grew out of the organized anti-slavery movement in the state, which had begun with the founding in Middlebury of an Anti-Slavery Society in 1834. The society, in its first annual report, declared, We therefore proclaim war with slavery, our weapon is truth- our basis, justiceour incentive, humanity- our force, moral power- our watchword, onward- our hope of success, in God. Abolitionist speakers were met with resistance, in some cases. In 1835 anti-slavery lectures by Samuel May were broken up in Montpelier and Rutland. In 1837 the society resolved that American slavery in principle is under all circumstances a flagrant sin. In 1840 the society resolved that the ministers who... oppose the cause of emancipation or remain silent on the subject, are unworthy of support or confidence as religious guides or teachers. During the late 1830s abolitionist petitions poured into the United States Congress. Most of the petitions related to the existence of slavery in the District of Columbia, and the domestic slave trade. As a result, a gag rule was adopted by Congress that required that petitions on the subject of slavery be laid on the table without action. Congressman William Slade, who had received many such petitions from his constituents in Vermont, rose to address the U.S. House of Representatives and said: We must not bury these petitions. And let me say to you gentleman, that such a policy will certainly defeat itself. You cannot smother investigation on this subject. The spirit of free inquiry is the master spirit of the age. Vermonters submitted many petitions, prompting angry replies from southern politicians. Governor Wise of Virginia said: We cannot reason with the heads of fanatics, nor touch hearts fatally bent upon treason. The Georgia House resolved: That His Excellency the Governor be and is hereby requested to transmit the Vermont resolutions to the deep, dank and fetid sink of social and political iniquity from whence they emanated, with the following unequivocal declaration inscribed thereon: Resolved, That Georgia standing on her own constitutional palladium, heeds not the maniac ravings of hellborn fanaticism, nor stoops from her lofty position to hold terms with perjured traitors. The Georgia Senate, not to be outdone, requested President Franklin Pierce to employ a sufficient number of able-bodied Irishmen to proceed to the State of Vermont, and to dig a ditch around the limits of the same, and to float the thing into the Atlantic.
n n n

The Growth of Anti-Slavery Sentiments

Feeding southern resentment was Vermonts participation in the underground railroad, the secret system of helping fugitive slaves escape from their masters and flee to the North and Canada. Vermont was on the border, it served as a trunk route north. There are still some houses in the state which have secret passageways and trap doors that were built to hide runaway slaves. Those interested in the anti-slavery movement during the preCivil War period often were involved in the temperance crusade. The Montpelier anti-slavery paper, Voice of Freedom saw this relationship. The temperance and anti-slave causes go well together. In fact I do not know of any moral or religious enterprise which can prosper without temperance being its companion. It was this which prepared the way for me to be an abolitionist, and I trust it has been so with thousands of others. 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.

Gifford Medical Center gynecologists Dr. Dina Levin and Dr. Ellamarie Russo-DeMara will lead a womens health talk on Dec. 1 at 6:30pm at the Randolph hospital on dreadful periods. The free talk is titled Put an End to It. Period. It will provide menstruating women of all ages a better understanding of why painful, heavy or sickening menstrual cycles occur and what care - both surgical and non-surgical - is available to help. Im gushing. Im flooding. Im hurting so bad, I cant move. I cant work. I cant enjoy life. We hear all those things, says Dr. Levin, a graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx and an ob/gyn with 14 years of experience. Those are things, however, that women do not have to put up with monthly. You dont have to live with it, both Drs. Levin and RussoDeMara agree.

Womens Health Talk Addresses Difficult Periods

n n n

We can help you, says Dr. Russo-DeMara, a perimenopause and menopause expert who has practiced for more than 20 years, and calls difficult periods one of the most common things I see. Dr. Russo-DeMara will talk about perimenopause, or the changes in a womens menstrual cycle - often in her 40s - before menopause occurs and non-surgical options for women of all ages to better difficult periods. Dr. Levin will address why bad periods occur and surgical options readily available. Theres a lot that we can do to make this better, Dr. Levin says. Women wanting to learn more and ask questions of these experts are encouraged to attend the free talk. It will be held in Giffords Conference Center. Gifford is located at 44 S. Main St. (Route 12) in Randolph. Registration is not required. Call (802) 728-2284 for more information.



Most families have been touched by Alzheimers disease or dementia, says Meg Burmeister, Director of Case Management at Central Vermont Council on Aging (CVCOA). Today 1 in 8 Americans age 65 or older are living with dementia. And the Alzheimers Association reports nearly 15 million Alzheimers and dementia caregivers provide 17 billion hours of unpaid care. Those hours of care can take their toll. More than 60 percent of these family caregivers report high levels of stress because of the prolonged duration of caregiving and 33 percent report symptoms of depression. The health risks to dementia caregivers cannot be ignored, continues Burmeister. To help family caregivers cope with the challenges they face, CVCOA offers two programs, a new home-based support program and respite grants. REACH OUT is an evidence-informed caregiver support program designed to promote the health and well-being of caregivers caring for a family member with dementia in the home. Caregivers will work with CVCOA case mangers over a sixmonth period to identify problems and create action plans to resolve those problems. The focus will be on education about dementia, caregiving and stress; home safety; caregiver health; relaxation; coping with dementia behaviors; and enhancing social ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your curiosity might not be appreciated by everyone. Expect some resistance in getting answers to your questions. But stay with it. You need facts in order to make important decisions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some of the mystery surrounding your recent fiscal situation soon will be dispelled with a clear explanation. Use this new knowledge to help you chart a fresh financial course. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Start your Hanukkah and Christmas gift-buying now. This will help avoid problems caused by possible mid-December delays. A family member has important information. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Use a little more sense in how you plan to spend your end-of-the-year holiday dollars. Meanwhile, you continue to gain support for your stand on a workplace issue. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Wearing that big, loving Lions heart of yours on your sleeve leaves it unprotected. Let things develop a little more before you allow your emotions to spill over. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to September 22) You might feel youre not ready to patch up an unraveled relationship. But the longer you wait, the more difficult it will be for all parties to take the first healing step.

CVCOA Offers Help to Caregivers of Persons with Dementia

support. Dementia Respite Grants allow the family caregiver to take a break from caregiving. Grants of up to $1000 can be used to hire substitute in-home help to provide personal care, companionship or homemaker services. Or the funds can be used to pay for adult day services or short-term institutional care. To qualify, the person receiving care must have a physicians diagnosis of Alzheimers disease or a progressive dementia, and have an income of less than $32,670 (individual) or $44,130 (couple). For more information about the REACH OUT program or the Dementia Respite Grant, call Jeanne Kern, CVCOA Family Caregiver Support, at 802-476-2671. Central Vermont Council on Aging (CVCOA) supports elders in leading healthy, independent, meaningful and dignified lives in their homes and communities in 54 central Vermont towns. Visit the CVCOA website at www.cvcoa.org or call the Senior Helpline at 1-800-642-5119. The CVCOA is located at 59 N.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your end-of-the-year holiday plans could be disrupted by something out of your control, but stay the course. Ultimately, things will settle back into a normal pace. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your honest approach to a workplace project earns you both respect and credit from those in charge. Meanwhile, that personal problem still needs to be dealt with. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Money could be a little tight this month. This means the usually bargain-oblivious Sagittarian should look for ways to save on end-of-the-year holidays. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Examine the facts, and you might find that its a wiser move to shift gears and redirect some of your goals before the end of the year. Someone close to you offers good advice. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Be careful that your generosity is not abused. Find out more, both about the special favors you might be asked to grant and who is asking for them. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youve come through a recent rough time in great shape. Congratulations. Now go out and enjoy your well-earned rewards. More good news comes in mid-December. BORN THIS WEEK: You aim for truth, and you usually find it. Your honesty earns you the friendship and respect of others.

Thank you everyone for the cards, gifts and owers that I received to celebrate my 95th birthday. I truly enjoyed reading every card, some from people that I havent heard from in a long time. I feel very fortunate to have such wonderful friends and family. Agatha LeBlanc

Fashion Know-How
This holiday season, try on a little sparkle and shine for size. When looking at holiday attire, consider fabrics with shimmer and shine. Theyre luxurious and not loud. Velours, satins, and even silks are fabrics that are perfect for the holiday season. They feel good and make you feel good while youre in them. If youre the daring kind try adding a little glitz. Dress up these wonderful fabrics with crystals, diamonds, or even cubic zirconia! If youre not the type to wear sparkles ordinarily, then the holiday season is the perfect time to step outside of Dont forget... your comfort box. If that idea is too much try a beaded scarf. Celebrate 2-8 Bob & the season with a yrs., the light ofConnie Spaulding, 43 little East Montpelier shimmer and sparkle!

Thought for the Day Nothing is impossible for the man who doesnt have to do it himself. -- A.H. Weiler

The Montpelier Community Gospel Choir, an ecumenical community choir which draws members from 19 Vermont towns, will be giving two free concerts this weekend. Performances will be held Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7pm at the North Congregational Church in St. Johnsbury, and Sunday Dec. 4 at 4pm at Bethany United Church of Christ in Montpelier. The choirs mission is to share the joy, hope and the inspiration it experiences through music especially during these challenging times. It is a great time to celebrate with the family, the community and with each other. Combining soul, jazz, original and traditional gospel music, the choir produces toe tapping, hand clapping, knee slapping, aisle swaying and seat thumping exuberant sound. The MCGC, central Vermonts only gospel choir, is composed of members from numerous religious and musical backgrounds who can produce a sound that reaches from deep within their souls to touch their audiences in a powerful way. It is truly difficult to remain seated during their performances and the choir welcomes the audience to become engaged and share with them. Join the choir for an uplifting experience. No admission is charged; however, a free-will offering will be gladly received. For more information, call 802-778-0881 or visit the choirs website: www.vtgospel.com.

Do you feel all thumbs when it comes to wrapping your gifts? The Mad Wrapper (aka local artist Pria Cambio) is returning to Studio Place Arts (SPA) in Barre on three Saturday afternoons in December to save the day. The Mad Wrapper will be offering a variety of fun and creative wraps and bows perhaps best described as gift disguises for a donation to SPA, our regions nonprofit art center. Come to SPA from Noon-3pm on these three Saturdays: Dec. 3; Dec. 10 & Dec. 17. The Mad Wrapper creates a variety of gift packaging looks: choose from glamorous, silly, one-of-a-kind, and the impossible-to-wrap (these items may take a little longer). Also, bring in your young ones and the Mad Wrapper will help them wrap surprise packages for family members. (You may bring gifts to SPA from other shops and also enjoy the holiday show at SPA while you are waiting for your packages to be created.) For more information, call SPA at 479-7069.

Radiant Ritual, oil/canvas, by Joy Huckins-Noss

The Texture of Light, a show of oil paintings by Vermont artist Joy Huckins-Noss, will be on display in the lobby of the Vermont Supreme Court Building in Montpelier through December 29. The building is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. A plein air artist, Joy Huckins-Noss studied painting in the tradition of the Impressionists. She employs oil paint, brushes, oil sticks, palette knives and rags, creating richly textured, multi-layered surfaces of broken colors. Though related to pointillism, her style has a fresh, contemporary edge. The work of Joy Huckins-Noss focuses on the relationship between nature and humanity. I am inspired by my surroundings in Vermont and other natural scenic areas, she explains. Light and color have a strong positive influence on me. I love to work with color to make the paintings glow. I want to bring the feelings and sensations of being outdoors into the painting After graduating from the University of New Mexico with a BA in art, Huckins-Noss returned to the East Coast where she participated in two residencies at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, studying with Lois Griffel and Ernest Principato. Over the years, she has studied with other notable landscape painters including Wolf Kahn, Don Stone, Charles Sovek and Doug Dawson. Huckins-Noss has exhibited extensively around Vermont, New York and New Hampshire. Notable individual shows include the Julian Scott Gallery at Johnson State College (2001), Helen Day Art Center in Stowe (2002), Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester (2002 and 2008) and the Vermont Governors Office in Montpelier (2003). Additionally, an exhibition of Huckins-Nosss paintings was held at the Tribeca Showroom of Pompanoosuc Mills in New York City in 2006. The public is invited to attend an opening reception for The Texture of Light on Thursday, November 10, from 5 to pm. Please note that the Supreme Court Building will be closed on Friday, December 16th and all state holidays.

LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE/ Lose 20 pounds in one week? This is almost impossible! Weight loss ads must reflect the typical experiences of the diet users. Beware of programs that claim you can lose weight effortlessly. TIP: Clues to fraudulent ads include words like: breakthrough, effortless, and new discovery. When you see words like these be skeptical. Before you invest your time and money call the ATTORNEY GENERALS CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, at 1-800-6492424. WANT A CURE-ALL? Health fraud is a business that sells false hope. Beware of unsubstantiated claims for health products and services. There are no Quick Cures - no matter what the ad is claiming. TIP: DO NOT rely on promises of a money back guarantee! Watch out for key words such as exclusive secret, amazing results, or scientific breakthrough. For more information on health related products or services, call the ATTORNEY GENERALS CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM at 1-800-6492424, or consult a health care provider.

Gardening Review for 2011

While thinking back on news and events from this past year, recall some of our top gardening tips and ideas towards making your fruit or vegetable garden more bountiful and landscape more beautiful this coming year. Some of these topics from our 60 Green Mountain Gardener articles during 2011 included ones on fruits, vegetables, new annuals, and new perennials. New perennials voted as choice among many professional nationwide are all hardy to at least USDA zone 4. The upright Northwind switchgrass, to 4 feet tall, with bluish-green leaves is attractive summer into much of winter. Caramel, with its orangish leaves, is one of the many new introductions of coralbells and is one of the more vigorous and hardy. Hot Lips is a great name for this choice turtlehead, with pink flowers in late summer resembling turtle heads (with mouth open). For spring bloom with small blue flowers like a forget-me-not, and silvery leaves in part shade, Jack Frost bugloss is a great choice. New annual flowers featured were recent winners in the All-America selections program. Arizona Apricot is a blanket flower with daisy-type flowers, a rich apricot with yellow edges, on compact plants about one foot high. Glamour Red is an ornamental kale with fringed leaf edges, bright purple in the center. As with other kales, this one is attractive into late fall. Summer Jewel Red is a scarlet sage type of salvia, the bright red flowers on spikes to 2 feet high. A good viola choice, similar to pansies only with smaller flowers, is Shangri-La Marina with light blue flowers with dark centers. New vegetables (again All-America winners) for this past year included a pumpkin and 2 tomatoes. Hijinks pumpkin has small and deep orange fruits, 6 to 7 inches wide, earlier than some. Lizzano tomato is has red cherry fruits, semi-determinate (between a bush and a vining type), and tolerates late blight disease. Terenzo is another red, cherry type but as a trailing or tumbler type is good in hanging baskets and raised beds or walls. Articles on vegetables included ones on how to grow them vertically or hanging, how to grow a fall vegetable gardena season often neglected, and several of the more common tomato diseases. Articles on fruits included ones on pruning grapes and fruit trees, how to espalier fruit trees (growing them in 2 dimensional shapes such as fans), or how to grow them in containers. When choosing fruit trees, its always best to get at least two different cultivars that bloom at the same time for cross pollination. Even though some may be listed as self-fertile (if you have only room for one tree, look for these), they invariably fruit better with a partner nearby (within 50 to 100 feet). Peaches, however, generally dont need such cross pollination. Several common cultivars for the north were listed for various tree fruits. Mildews and black rots are some diseases which were described to watch for on grape plants, while main pests include the grape berry moth, Japanese beetles, and rose chafers. A new pest to watch for on fruit plants, as well as many others, which is spreading northward through the Northeast is the brown marmorated stinkbug. It can become quite a home nuisance as well, overwintering indoors. Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor, UVM Similar to other stink bugs, the shield shape (wider at the rear) of this adult bug is about as wide as long. Their differences from other stinkbugs may not be obvious to the untrained eye so, to make sure, consult your state university plant diagnostic clinic. These can be found online, including those for

Northeast states (www.nepdn.org). Some of the articles this past year on indoor gardening covered paperwhites, orchids, and herbs. Other outdoor flower articles covered the bluestars perennial, grape hyacinths, and dahlias. A variety of other articles covered such topics as hummingbird gardens, designing an accessible garden, and invasive plants. More on these and other topics can be found online, and searched, either by season or by topic (perennialsperennials.info/articleS.htm).

Salt Damage to Plants

Most people are only too aware of the damage and corrosive effects of salt on automobiles, but may not be aware of damage that winter salt on roads and walks can cause on plants. On heavily traveled highways from 40 to 80 tons of salt per lane mile per year may be applied. Landowners along these roads also are aware Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor, UVM twig dieback. When conifers are injured by salt spray, the affected foliage turns yellow or brown in early spring. If spray is the primary cause of the salt deposit, discolored needles are soon masked by the new seasons growth. However, if salt is excessive in the soil, the new needles may die as chloride ions accumulate in them. This could be lethal to the entire plant if it occurs for several consecutive years. One characteristic of salt injury that aids in diagnosis is that it is often confined to branches facing the road. Trees closer to the road suffer more damage than those set farther back. You can often observe this on pines and other evergreens near interstates where theyve been affected by the salt spray thrown from passing plows at high speeds and with wind. Here are 10 measures you can use to prevent or lessen plant injury from salt. -- Rather than sodium chloride, use calcium or magnesium or potassium chlorides. These are more expensive but you need to use much less. Or use sand, cinders, or one of the relatively new and safer deicing products (these are often liquids and consist of chemicals more akin to fertilizers). Liquid products wont track about outside or indoors as do granular products. --In the coldest areas, use a calcium chloride product as it works down to about 5 degrees (F). In contrast, rock salt only is effective down to about 15 degrees (F). Other products fall in between. If below 5 degrees (F), dont use chemicals but rather sand for some traction if really icy. -- Pre-apply any chemicals prior to icing or snow, as they are more effective then and you can use less. Dont apply on top of snow, rather shovel it away and then apply. -- Generally use less salt and deicing chemicals, as many landowners tend to apply too muchsmall applications more often are more effective. -- Late season applications (after March 1) are most detrimental and should be avoided if possible since this is the time plants are coming out of dormancy and are most susceptible to injury. -- Screens of fencing or burlap may be erected to ward off salt spray from roads. -- Salt and snow should not be piled around plants or in places where the resulting salt water will drain into plants when the snow melts. -- Construct a shallow trench between walks or drives and plants or lawns. This will help channel salt runoff away from desirable garden areas. -- If weather permits, its a good idea to flush the area around roots exposed to salt with fresh water as soon as the snow melts. -- Where new trees and shrubs are to be planted and where exposure to salt is likely, select species or cultivars resistant to salt spray injury. Examples of salt-tolerant evergreens include white spruce and Austrian pine. Salt-tolerant deciduous trees include ash, birch, honey locust, poplar, tamarack (larch), white oak, red oak, mountain ash, and weeping willow. Salt-tolerant shrubs include serviceberry, broom, pea shrub, hydrangea, winterberry, northern bayberry, mockorange, potentilla, most shrub roses, tamarisk, and spreading cotoneaster.
lowed made The Joy of Cooking a national bestseller, and many consider it one of the better cookbooks ever. And now for the good part. Are you sitting down, Susan? Since so few copies of the first edition exist, your signed copy is probably worth about $5,000, perhaps more at auction. The 1936 edition is valued in the $140 to $250 range, and the 1962 edition (which I also like and use), goes for $30 to $50, depending on condition. Another popular edition is the one issued in 1943 because of its sugarless recipes, necessary because of war rationing. *** Q: While cleaning out my mothers kitchen cabinets, I found a set of salt and pepper shakers featuring a clowns head design and made in Japan. Mom thinks they are from the early 1950s. -- Sue, San Diego A: Your mother is probably right. I found similar S&Ps referenced in the Antique Traders Salt and Pepper Price Guide, edited by Mark F. Moran (Krause, $19.99), most selling in the $15 to $25 range. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

of the damage to plants that such salt can cause. Deicing salt is usually refined rock salt consisting of about 98.5 percent sodium chloride, 1.2 percent calcium sulfate, 0.1 percent magnesium chloride, and 0.2 percent rock. Calcium chloride is reported to be less toxic to plants but is seldom used on roads because it is much more expensive than rock salt and more difficult to handle in bulk. When sprayed onto plants from passing cars and plows, salt may enter plant cells or the spaces between the cells directly. One result of this salt application is that buds and small twigs of some plant species lose cold hardiness and are more likely to be killed by freezing. Salt accumulation in the soil also may cause plant injury. This frequently occurs when salt-laden snow is plowed off streets and sidewalks onto adjacent lawns. Anyone who has tried to get table salt out of a wet shaker knows how readily salt absorbs water. Rock salt exhibits the same property in the soil and absorbs much of the water that would normally be available to roots. Thus, even though soil moisture is plentiful, high amounts of salt can result in a drought-like environment for plants. When salt dissolves in water, sodium and chloride ions separate and may then harm the plants. Chloride ions are readily absorbed by the roots, transported to the leaves, and accumulate there to toxic levels. It is these toxic levels that cause the characteristic marginal leaf scorch. The symptoms of excessive salt resemble those caused by drought or root injury. They include stunted, yellow foliage; premature autumn leaf coloration; death of leaf margins (scorch); and

Q: My mom grew up in Soulard, a neighborhood in St. Louis. During the early 1930s, she met Irma S. Rombauer, who, with her daughter Marion, was compiling a new cookbook, The Joy of Cooking. It was published in 1931, and my mother was given a signed first edition. I have often wondered about its value and wonder if you can help me. Is this just another cookbook, or do I have something really special? I am a professional cook and often use the cookbooks later editions, especially the one published in 1962. -- Susan, Wheatridge, Colo. A: Take off your apron and sit down, because I have some rather startling news for you. First, let me provide you with a little background about The Joy of Cooking, one of the most significant cookbooks in American history. Irma and Marion Rombauer lived in the Compton Heights neighborhood of St. Louis, and even though neither woman had much experience in the kitchen, Irmas husband committed suicide, which made it necessary for the two women to find a way they could support themselves. Irma gathered recipes, and her daughter illustrated them. The first edition had a definite German-American flavor, which reflected their neighborhood. The editions that folNovember 30, 2011

Questions - and Answers - from Efficiency Vermont

Ask The Home Team


Q: Last year, you had a column about energy-saving holiday gifts. Could you run that again? A: Sure thing. Heres a list that includes ideas in a variety of price ranges: CFLs - Compact fluorescent light bulbs use up to 75% less energy and can last as much as 10-times as long as traditional incandescents. Weather stripping, window-plastic, caulk, and maybe even your time to help stop drafts at exterior doors and windows. Low-flow shower heads & faucet aerators reduce costs for water and water-heating. LED Christmas lights use about one-tenth the energy of traditional mini lights, they dont get hot like the old lights do, and they can last for as long as 20 years. Programmable thermostats These enable you to come home to a warm house, wake up to a warm house, and lower your heat bills. You can program these thermostats to automatically turn the heat up when you need it and down when you dont. That costs far less than keeping a home warm around the clock. Advanced power strips - When home electronics are off, they still use power. This power strip automatically shuts off electricity to idle devices like TVs, game consoles, printers, and more. Home electronics & home office equipment If youve decided to give this kind of gift, be aware that some models are big energy users. Look for the ENERGY STAR label to find energy-saving models from major manufacturers of TVs, recording devices, computers, printers and more. Learn more at www.efficiencyvermont.com. In the Residential section, click on Saving Energy and youll see the Home Electronics option. Appliances - ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers, refrigerators, and other major appliances save significant amounts of energy over traditional models. A home assessment from the experts - If your gift recipients are ready to invest in energy-saving home improvements that will improve their comfort year-round, give the gift of a whole-house assessment from a certified Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor. These pros find and fix and the causes of high energy bills, drafts, moisture problems, indoor air-quality issues, and more. After the assessment, the homeowner can decide what recommended improvement theyd like to invest in. Efficiency Vermont offers up to $2,500 in rebates for improvements completed by these specially trained contractors. Visit www.efficiencyvermont.com for a list of contractors and more info. - Kathleen for the Home Team Q: My daughter recently discovered that, when we have a fire going in the fireplace, we can feel a steady draft of cold air coming in around the front door. Were writing to you about this because our furnace kicks on as the draft passes by the thermostat. In your energy work, have you run across this? Please tell me it doesnt mean weve got to stop using the fireplace in order to save heating fuel! A: Your daughter discovered something that can happen in any house with a fireplace.

of the house; they also pull warm air out of the house. As warm air is lost up the chimney, equal amounts of cold air are drawn into the house from outdoors. Thats why your front-door draft happens. In fact, its also why outside air enters through gaps throughout the house. Typical places include around windows, plumbing vents, wire pathways and more. Thats why wingback chairs are traditional around fireplaces; they help protect people from the draft coming toward the fireplace. The result is a costly cycle, because your central heating system then works harder to replace the lost heat and to compensate for the incoming cold air. This phenomenon is at its worst on the coldest days of the year, when were itching to get by the fire. You can take steps to reduce the drafts and heat loss. First, see that the damper is shut when the fireplace isnt in use, after all ashes have gone cold. Fireplace doors also help. Caulk around the houses window frames and exterior door frames and use weather stripping on exterior doors too. In fact, finding and sealing up air leaks is one of the most cost-effective energy-saving improvements you can make to a house, whether or not it has a fireplace. A Home Performance with ENERGY STAR contractor can do a comprehensive job of air sealing, including at key points between the house and the attic, as well as use diagnostic equipment to ensure the fireplace will have sufficient combustion air even after comprehensively sealing your home.

Learn more and find a contractor at www.efficiencyvermont.com. Low-income Vermonters can get similar services for free at www.helpforvt.org. - Kathleen for the Home Team Q: A friend of mine says I can get free hot water if I connect my hotwater piping to my woodstove. Does this really work? A: Some woodstoves are manufactured with water heater connections, and some are designed only for space heat. This is an important distinction, because it can be dangerous to convert a space-heat stove into one that also heats water. Im all for do-it-yourself jobs, but retrofitting a space-heat woodstove isnt one of them. The system must be engineered, installed, and inspected by a professional. Extreme care must be given to the installation of any kind of woodstove water-heating system to prevent overheated water, which poses an explosion hazard. In order to be safe, any such system must have its own expansion tank and pressure relief valve, as well as circulating pumps and a way to dissipate the water heat if the hot-water tanks aquastat has been satisfied. Another risk is that improperly diverted heat can mean that toxic gases in the stove may become cool enough to be unable to rise up the chimney under certain conditions. Those trapped gases enter your house when you open the stove door. If youve got a stove thats designed by the manufacturer to provide both space heat and water heat, yes, it will work. But its a bit misleading to call the hot water free; it costs you, just as the hot air from the stove costs you, in wood. You see, theres a fixed amount of heat produced by any heating system. If you redirect some of it for a different use (hot water), youll need to produce more total heat to make up for the loss to the first use (hot air). I hope this answers your question. - Li Ling for The Home Team

Can Cats Overdose on Catnip?

DEAR PAWS CORNER: Is it possible to give too much catnip to a cat? And, is dried catnip as potent as fresh? -- Gina in Flint, Mich. DEAR GINA: Ive seen cats react to catnip in a variety of different ways -- from tearing around the house to lounging draped across furniture -- but have not read of a cat actually overdosing on the herb. Nepetalactone is the chemical that produces a cats distinct reaction to catnip. Its released when the plant is bruised, which is why youll often see a cat rubbing against and biting fresh catnip. According to various sources, the cats high is produced when it sniffs the bruised leaves or stems; eating catnip produces a sedative effect. Cats generally lose interest in catnip once theyve had enough. As to whether fresh or dried catnip is better, or equally potent, dried catnip can be just as effective, although like any dried herb, the age of the catnip and how it has been stored can affect its potency. Thats one reason to look carefully at brands of dried catnip or catnip-impregnated toys before purchasing. Pet owners can grow their own catnip on the windowsill, in full sun (out of reach of the cat until its strong enough to put up with a cats devoted attention) and either present it fresh to the cat or trim the mature plant and hang it upside down to dry. Finally, what to do if you place catnip in front of your pet and it shows no interest? Walk away for a while -- it will either get interested eventually or not, but most cats cant be forced to ingest or play with catnip.

melted the permafrost and was only going to get worse in a rapidly warming world. This is an example of some of the costs in warming world, which many in so called leadership roles were ignoring. Arctic Amplification Just as climate computer modeling has suggested in the last two decades, the arctic regions with ice loss at record levels in the arctic ocean, and permafrost melt on land, changes were escalating and having monetary ramifications of over 2 billion in Canada alone according to CBC news. Weather Trends Ahead With another warm southerly flow of air coming to an end Wednesday, we should see temperature levels cool down to more seasonable ones to start the month of December. Highs were forecast in the 30s to near 40 by weeks end. Wet and sometimes windy weather Tuesday night and Wednesday will circulate in on the back side of this tracking weather system. The colder air late in the week and this week-

end should be accompanied by change able weather Friday with a few snow showers and flurries. An area of higher pressure may bring more sunshine than clouds for the weekend, but have the parkas and gloves at the ready as temperatures will be colder. A Look At December Our weather trends for the first half of winter appear to continue warmer and drier than normal as predicted a few weeks ago. These trends per longer range outlooks using the much more accurate European Community Weather Forecast Model (ECMWF), was keeping the coldest arctic air well to our north. This strong polar vortex was the opposite version of winter weather we have had over the last two winters. Another player in Decembers weather will be a very positive version of the Eastern Pacific Oscillation which was dramatically high. Lesser effects were from a very mild La Nina. After the colder period we get next week to start the month, it appears we are back to another roller coaster ride in temperatures between mild and cold.

Last Weeks Weather Fair weather early last week thanks to high pressure quickly gave way to a quick moving storm system brought a shot wet moderate to heavy snowfall. The storm developed in the Ohio Valley region and tracked favorably to our south, for a late November snowfall last Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. This storm system was moisture loaded and ready for bear in the amount of melted precipitation. Across mainly central and eastern Vermont snowfall amounts flirted with a foot. Ludlow picked up nearly a foot with 1.55 inches of melted precip. Now thats was wet snow! Further to the north, the snowfall was much less wet where a half foot to 10 inches was common. Least amounts fell across the northern tier areas of Vermont especially in the northern Champlain Valley. Thanksgiving saw an overcast gray day with temperatures tuck in the 30s, but that quickly subsided as readings rose above normal once again. By the weekend, snowfall had melted back considerably with patches in the lower valley elevations and reading flirting with 60 degrees overnight Sunday night in the last Monday morning. The warmer weather had once again denied great skiing winter recreational opportunities, for the moment. Colder trends were just around the corner. Vermont Weather Stats from Last week ending November 21st Monday morning Highest temperature: 63 degrees at Pawlet last Monday morning the 28th Lowest temperature: 8 degrees at Island

Pond airport Heaviest 24 hour rainfall: 1.55 inches in Ludlow ending Wednesday morning 23rd Snowfall: 11.5 Ludlow ending Wednesday morning the 23rd Snow Depth: 11 Woodstock ending Wednesday morning 23rd Global Weather Facts For Last Week Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 110 Vredendal, South Africa. Last weeks coldest temperature: minus 52 at Russias Vostok Antarctic research station. Soon competition from North America and especially Siberia will be vying for coldest readings this time in the northern hemisphere as northern winter settles in. Octobers Carbon Dioxide level (CO2) was 388.92. Compared to previous October, it is up from 387.15. That was a 1.77 increase in parts per million since 2010. Global Warming and Infrastructure Looming tax payer costs Part 1. The effects of rising temperatures are currently being felt by our neighbors to the north where the most extreme warming has taken place. See the graphic below, as temperatures melt the permafrost of Canada and Alaska. An infrastructure nightmare continues over the last ten years with unstable ground due to melting permafrost once very stable. The buckling ground has been very costly, highways buckling, crooked floors, framing, and doors that on some days do not open in places like Dawson Yukon territories. Incremental warming has

Dawson Yukon Territories illustration on what happens to the permafrost and infrastructure due to global warming. When ground temperatures warm above freezing in the arctic regions, the usually stable ice and soil radically changes causing myriad of problems for our neighbors to the north.
