Some Good Things Never Change: SAME LOW PRICE AS LAST SPRING

Four Barre financial institutions have joined forces in a fun-filled fundraiser for the benefit of Green Mountain United Way. This fundraiser is called the Barre United Way Challenge and is being held from March 12th through March 23rd with the hope that it will continue from year to year. Those participating are Key Bank, the Members Advantage Credit Union, the Merchants Bank and Peoples United Bank. Each location will be raising money in various ways and the one institution and its customers having raised the most money by March 23rd will be the winner of a roving annual trophy. Customers of these fine financial institutions can join in the fun by stopping by, donating to the challenge and participating in whatever event that institution is sponsoring.

Local Financial Institutions Compete in the Barre United Way Challenge

In addition to the trophy, the employees of the winning location will also be awarded a free Subway luncheon. It sounds like it will be a fierce and competitive two weeks in downtown Barre between March 12th and March 23rd. Stop by at any one of these four locations and see what the employees have in store for a little excitement. With your help, theyll be working hard to raise money to support the GMUW initiatives of Financial Stability, Healthy Living, Early Learning and Basic Needs in our local communities. For more information about Green Mountain United Way, visit, and for more details about this fundraiser, call Wendy Rea at the Merchants Bank at 476-4107.

In November and December 2011, people who contributed to Vermont Public Televisions year-end fundraiser saw their generosity help two statewide causes: VPT and the Vermont Foodbank. Northfield Savings Bank, a longtime supporter of both organizations, offered to donate three meals to the Foodbank for every contribution in any amount to VPTs year-end campaign. The result is 22,452 meals for Vermonters to be served by the Foodbank. In February, Tom Pelletier (left), president of Northfield Savings Bank, with John King (right), president of VPT, presented a check for $12,500, the cost of the meals, to John Sayles, CEO of Vermont Foodbank. The Family Center of Washington County will host Family Fun Day on Saturday, March 17, from 10am to 1pm at Union Elementary School, 1 Park Avenue in Montpelier. The event is free and open to the public. Family Fun Day is an opportunity to ward off mid-winter doldrums with lively entertainment, activities and refreshments for children of all ages. This years entertainment on the main stage is Troy Wunderles One Man Circus. The show features, but is not limited to: circus style ball, ring, and club juggling routines, intricate diablo manipulation, fast paced rhythmic ball bouncing, unicycle skits, plate spinning, teetering rolla bollas, clown antics, rolling globe stunts, ladder balancing, audience participation, magic and tricks for all. He offers audience participation and fun for the whole family. In the large gym people can come and listen, sing, jump, romp and shake to the crazy beats and sounds of Christopher R and His Flying Purple Guitar. Christopher performs children songs that rap, rock and roll. The audience can grab a shaker or microphone and literally get into the act. Hes a unique and funny one-man band that has entertained and delighted area children and adults for years. Other scheduled activities include arts and crafts, face painting, baby playgroup and more. Two Child Passenger Safety Technicians will staff an informational table and show a video on car seat safety and sample car seats. They will also be available to answer any questions. Story Time will be presented by Kellogg-Hubbard Library, and in between events, families can head to the cafeteria and snack on pizza, subs, baked goods and beverages for a nominal fee. Family Fun Day is sponsored in part by Central Vermont Building Bright Futures; Citizens Bank; Denis, Ricker and Brown; John F. Fricke Insurance; Northfield Savings Bank; Noyle W. Johnson Insurance; and Zutano. The Family Center of Washington County, one of 16 parent child centers in Vermont, is a non-profit organization fostering the positive growth and development of young children and their families.

Williamstown Historical Society has been recognized as a 2012 recipient of the Community Grants Program award of $498 presented by Jeffrey Berwick of the Isham-Berwick Agency, Inc. and Co-operative Insurance Companies. We think the Williamstown Historical Society does great work to support their local community, said Jeffrey Berwick. We are very proud to support their efforts. The award was formally presented in front of the Historical Society Building on February 19, 2012; Becky Watson (Executive Director) and Doreen Chambers accepted the award. Becky and I are delighted and very appreciative to receive this gift. The Historical Society plans to use the gift to print a series of self-guided walking and driving tours for Williamstown, Vermont. It will also allow us to purchase display cases to hold the brochures. The tours are designed to serve a variety of purposes for residents and visitors including: gaining knowledge about the history of our town and our local attractions, promoting our village businesses, and improving their health in a fun way, said Doreen Chambers. Co-operative Insurance Companies Community Grants Program was established in 2004 to assist with community projects across Vermont and New Hampshire. Through this program, Co-op partners with its agents and directors provide funds for capitol campaigns throughout the two states. Groups like the Williamstown Historical Society are meeting needs in the same communities that Co-op serves, said Brad Fortier, Co-ops Director of Marketing. We think it is important to do our part as neighbors to help them out, and this grant program is one more way we can do that.
The game of chess originated in India in about 2,000 B.C. -- it was called chaturanga. And it didnt look quite like the modern version that is played all over the world today. Chaturanga had only four kinds of pieces: elephants, chariots, horses and foot soldiers.

Community National Bank (CNB) employees and Advisory Board members recently meet with Montpelier City officials and staff and board members of the Montpelier Senior Activity Center (MSAC) to deliver the first of three installments of $10,000 to benefit the MSACs renovation project. The Center is an invaluable resource for community members living in, and around, Montpelier who are age 50 and over. The MSAC originated in 1967 with 60 members. Today membership has increased to well over 600 and is rising, especially with growing excitement of the newly renovated facility located at the original site of 58 Barre St. in Montpelier. Since its origination, the MSAC has continued to develop programming based on the needs of its members. Currently there are 40 regular weekly classes and activities, including a limited meal service that is presently being accommodated offsite but will come back onsite when the new MSAC facility is completed. In December 2009, a catastrophic fire raged through the Center, forcing the organization to relocate to the former St. Michaels School building on 46 Barre St. For over 50 years, the Center has served thousands of members, and the need for the Centers services has continued to grow. In 2010, the City Planning Department began the renovation planning to rebuild the Center. The approved plans show the MSAC occupying the entire ground floor which will include a game room and an open seating area along with a full kitchen. The MSAC will also have access to two large mezzanine rooms for classes and activities. The upper floors will house 14 apartment units that will be used mostly for senior housing and will be managed by the Montpelier

CNB Boosts Montpelier Senior Activity Renovation Project

Housing Authority. The total renovation will cost nearly $5 million. The MSAC portion is $1.7 million. Most of this funding has been secured through insurance money, an endowment fund and grants, leaving a gap of $200,000 needed. A capital campaign was launched to help raise the $200,000 needed. When asked about the importance of the MSAC, Advisory Board Chairperson Elizabeth Dodge comments, I have found a wonderful camaraderie with other members. I have also noticed that regular activity for my mind and body has helped to slow down the progression of my Parkinsons. My favorite activity is playing Bridge. Elizabeths statements fall directly in line with the MSACs mission which is to enhance the quality of life for older adults through opportunities that develop physical, mental, cultural, social and economic well-being in a welcoming and flexible environment. CNB President, Steve Marsh states, The MSAC delivers excellent programming to support the needs of the community and Community National Bank is proud to be a major contributor to the MSACs Renovation project. In addition to the three-year contribution, CNB contributed to the initial funding of the project with an equity investment of $1,085,000 and has also purchased tax credits from the MSAC Renovation project. The MSACs Director Janna Clar stated, CNB has made an investment in healthy aging and lifelong learning for Montpelier area seniors that will be appreciated for decades to come.

A couple of years ago, the Randolph Center Fire Department responded to a fire in Randolph. With the fire under control, Chief Al Floyd was informed about one of the homes residents still inside. It turned out the resident was a dog named Abby that had succumbed to smoke inhalation. Chief Floyd successfully resuscitated Abby with mouth-to-mouth. The Randolph Center Fire Department will no longer need to rely on risky human to animal resuscitation methods, thanks to the donation of pet oxygen masks from Keene Medical Products, coordinated through the efforts of 4 Legs & a Tail magazine. Pet oxygen masks are designed to efficiently deliver oxygen quickly to pets and small animals overcome by smoke. Although many pets involved with fires may appear fine, reports indicate that the exposure to smoke may not be seen for up to a half hour. The donation from Keene Medical includes three distinctive size masks, specifically designed to accommodate the differences between human faces and pets. If other fire departments or rescue groups are interested in more details of pet oxygen mask donation, contact Tim at 4 Legs & a Tail magazine at 603-727-4700.

I got just the right amount of help when I needed it...all were reassuring and comforting. When I needed something someone was there. The Gendron family...and the CVMC family, continues to grow. On February 22 little Ira Joseph was welcomed by his mom Amy, CVMCs senior dietitian, his dad Lucas and his big brother Cyrus. We are pretty sure Cyrus was expressing joy and happiness for the camera not only because of the arrival of a younger sibling but also in celebration of his new role as the bigger brother - the OLDER brother - the one with power and the well tuned ability to get attention. We are fairly certain Cyrus was showing pride that his younger brother Ira weighed 7lb/8oz and was 20.5 inches long at birth - a good size indeed - and that Ira is very cute as well! Mom and dad are more traditional in their expression of joy and happiness. Balance is good. Congratulations to this great family. We wish them continued fun and happiness. Lucus, Amy, Cyrus and Ira Gendron live in Calais. YAY!

By Lydia Ham The motto of the US Marine Corps says it well-Semper Fidelis. When Marine Sergeant Jesse Strong talked to his mother on the morning of September 11,2001, he said, I am ready to do whatever I am called upon to do to protect my country! He stuck to that promise with the honor, courage, and commitment of a Marine and a true hero. On January 26/20051 a rocketpropelled grenade killed Sergeant Strong and three other young Marines in Iraq during an ambush attack on their convoy. They gave the ultimate sacrifice. People like Jesse Strong have given their lives serving in Americas military throughout our history. Many have sacrificed much to give us the tremendous gift we have in our country. Jesse Strongs mother puts it like this, Our country is free because of those in every generation who have stepped up to serve in our military. They are our true heroes, and we owe them our humble thanks and gratitude. Thanks to their sacrifices, I have never experienced the terror of never knowing when someone in my family might be taken away because of our beliefs or race or for no reason at all. l dont have to wonder if a stray step will cause a landmine to blow, maiming or killing me or someone else. Even a simple freedom-I can play outside under the open sky-is one that I would not have without the courageous and dedicated service of our military throughout many, many generations. That tradition of military service is one of incredible devotion and unquestionable pride. I personally am privileged to know many men and women who have served and are serving in our military, from a broad span of ages, backgrounds, and military conflicts. When I wrote to these amazing people to ask if they believed there was pride in serving in Americas military,

Is There Pride in Serving in Our Military?

the answer that came resoundingly back to me was yes! My questions about their military pride moved beyond the original recipients until I started receiving emails from people I didnt even know. I heard from people who had served anywhere from Iwo Jima to Iraq. By the time I had perused pages and pages of responses, I knew I could never have any doubts as to whether there was pride in military service. The stories and answers spoke for themselves. One of my respondents, Major Celina E. Noyes, who is a Special Action Officer in the Commanders Action Group, said, l believe theres tremendous pride-As US service members we have a unique opportunity to serve our country, defend freedom and democracy, and also help others. She explained what she does at the Headquarters Air Mobility Command and added, We deliver hope, fuel the fight, and save lives. Where else can you find a job like that?! A Marine wrote back with the unequivocal, There IS pride in serving in Americas Armed Forces. Pride in knowing you are in the 1-2% of Americans willing to lay down their life for this ethereal concept we call the United States of America. Pride in knowing you have successfully completed some of the hardest training in the world. Pride in living up to the reputation of those who have gone before, so as not to bring discredit or disgrace upon their works and the service. Replying to my questions, a member of the MI Army Security Agency put her reason to serve simply, Because I love my country. Although he had been drafted into the Army, a Vietnam veteran also agreed that there was pride in serving, saying that those who have pride in our military believe that our freedom and the values we hold dear ... are worth fighting for.

Lydia Ham, a homeschooled junior has been named the fourth place winner in the 2012 National Voice of Democracy Program and recipient of the $7,000 LeRoy Moorhead Memorial Scholarship Award. This award was provided by former Heavyweight Boxing Champion George Foreman in memory of his father. Lydia plans a career in music, writing, or expressive arts therapy/ education (and missionary work) and she was sponsored by VFW Post 798 and Ladies Auxiliary in Newport, VT.

Air Force Major Gene Jacobus put it this way, /II believe there is pride in serving in Americas military because we are united under a common bond of service. Service to something much greater than ourselves. Service to our country and our way of life ... service to you and your life. The answer of Gold Star mother Victoria Strong was the story of her sons part in this service. Recollecting Jesses Marine Corps boot camp graduation at Parris Island, she explained, My heart was bursting with pride. On a different note of the pride in military service, she recounted what he had said upon his departure for Iraq-lf I do not return, it will be a privilege to give my life for my country. Although Jesse was killed in action, his courage and commitment are still with us in the proud legacy of freedom that he gave his life to defend.

This awe-inspiring level of service, devotion, and sacrifice is echoed in countless American heroes who have guarded and upheld that legacy since our nations conception. Put together, the sum of their gift is unfathomable and priceless. Our heroes have given much to give us much. Many, like Jesse Strong, have given all. What is more worthy of our honor and pride? The words of Marine Commandant General James F. Amos describe this welt While it has come at a cost ... we have much to be proud of. Semper Fidelis. Jesse Strong and all of the other incredible people who have given so much to protect our freedom are true heroes, not only Always Faithful... but also always worthy of our deepest honor, gratitude, and pride. As long as we have heroes such as these, there will always be pride in serving in our military.

Marchs Healthy Retailer of the Month: LBJs

Independent grocery store, convenience store, and gas stations owners around the state are working together with community groups statewide and Vermont Department of Health to create environments that encourage healthier food and beverage choices. This months Healthy Retailer is LBJs in Worcester. LBJs is run by a lovely woman named Jassy. Jassy and her husband have owned LBJs for 6 years and are originally from Punjab, India. Hidden in the back of the store are wonderful ingredients for traditional Indian dishes, such as lentils, beans, and spices to make healthy soups, stews, and sauces. Some of the spices in traditional Indian foods actually have medicinal properties. With spices such as curry, turmeric, and cumin you can make wonderful dishes like Red Lentil Curry, Baingan Bhart (eggplant curry) and Spicy Indian Chicken Curry. Curry, a spice blend that may contain a wide array of individual spices, lends signature flavor to dishes from India and other parts of Asia. You may be surprised to learn that curry powder is actually made with ingredients from at least four different spices. These ingredients, which commonly include turmeric, cardamom, cumin, and coriander all have healing properties that combine to improve your health and well-being. Thanks to the ingredient turmeric, curry powder is slowly gaining recognition from the medical community for its anti-inflammatory properties. In India, turmeric is commonly used to treat skin burns and cuts. When it comes to fiber, a mere half cup of lentils provides around a third of your daily requirements. Thanks to this fiber, By Amanda Colon, Central Vermont New Directions Coalition

your body absorbs the energy from lentils slowly, which helps keep blood-sugar levels even and helps lower cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease and keeping your digestive system running smoothly. Lentils also deliver an impressive amount of blood-fortifying iron -- especially when paired with a food containing vitamin C, such as citrus fruits or peppers. And like other legumes, lentils are a significant (and virtually fat-free) source of protein.

Capitol Notebook bY JoHN oDUM

t the time of the writing of this column, the Vermont legislature is still on its Town Meeting break. This is not to say that there isnt legislative activity at all, its just dialed way down and hidden from view. When the legislature returns, lawmakers will start looking towards the endgame, and the final disposition of a host of introduced bills. One surprise came in the report that the Senate will indeed hold hearings on the so-called death-with-dignity bill, otherwise known as the so-called physician-assisted suicide bill. Whichever you choose to call it (which, of course, roughly correlates to how you feel about it), its the bill that would afford some terminal patients the opportunity to end their lives at a moment of their own choosing. The bills been up before, and its a peculiar animal in that polls tend to show broad support for its passage, and yet it cant seem to pass. It likely wont this time, either, when all is said and done. Thats because the fors have never truly organized as a force, while the againsts have. Oregons end of life law was passed at the ballot box. As with anything on a ballot, forces rose for and against, and in the end, the vote largely mirrored the opinion polls. But in Vermonts legislative arena, until supporters can get as loud as the opponents, this bill will have trouble. And its not alone - here are some of the many bills that are (likely) doomed to oblivion, given the calendar (and their subject matter): There is H.68, sponsored by Manchester Democrat Jeff Wilson and Burlington Democrat Rachel Weston, who recently left the House and was replaced by fellow Dem Jill Krowinski. H.68 would change the motor vehicle statutes so that no person shall possess a lighted tobacco product in a motor vehicle which is occupied by a child under 18 years of age. Although there are obviously plenty of folks who feel strongly about smoking, this one doesnt seem to be going anywhere. H.116, sponsored by Democratic Representative Margaret Cheney, would have much the same effect but draw the cut off from age 18 to age 14. More appealing for some, perhaps, but still an issue nobody is excited to debate in the media. There is a slew of bills like H.60, sponsored by Republican

State House News & Notes

Are your appliances giving you the blues?

Representative Robert Lewis of Derby. In a bill long enough to write on a napkin, H.60 would simply eliminate the current income sensitivity provisions on property tax starting immediately. Its one of those do it so you can say you did it bills put forward by some GOP lawmakers that have about as much chance to get a hearing in the Democratic-controlled legislature as I have to be named Miss USA. Hinesburg Democrat Bill Lippert has introduced a bill (H.106) that would require police Tasers to be equipped with an undetermined electronic recording device to produce a usage log. That log would then be open for viewing under the states public record laws. Without a groundswell of support, leadership is unlikely to invite the kind of drawn out public controversy that recently accompanied police requests for Tasers in Montpelier although it is the kind of bill that could very suddenly generate a great deal of support if word starts circulating. H.212 is another no-chance-in-a-million-years bill, but differs from H.60 in that its bipartisan (one of its sponsors is longtime Democratic Representative Atkins of Winooski). This bill would again allow for the use of lead sinkers for fishing. Like its cousin, H.60, it too could virtually be written on a napkin (although youd have to use both sides, as this one has several co-sponsors). Heres a bill, currently in the Government Operations Committee, where it will languish, wither, and go the way of all things: H.262 has thirteen bipartisan co-sponsors, which suggests that it may have a chance to get a hearing, but for the fact that its a bill which would ban automated election campaign phone calls (otherwise known as robocalls). Rather than create new regulations, it would simply write robocalls out of allowed communications. Appealing as this may be, robocalls are simply too much a staple of both major parties campaigns particularly the statewide campaigns. Why? Because robocalls are absolutely dirt cheap. So long as they are the lowest cost method to reach a large number of voters quickly, expect them to stay a part of the electoral landscape. Now, anything could happen with these bills, but the opportunity for that anything to happen is rapidly fading away and next years session is the start of a whole new biennium, so supporters of these efforts and many others will have to start from scratch if they dont get traction quickly.

Reponse to Reiss Column on Manners

Editor: This letter should be addressed to "Mrs. Reiss," as that is why I am writing. As an old goat, myself, having recently turned 75 under the sign of Capricorn, I would like to comment on her column Reiss's Pieces, February 15, 2012. I certainly don't want children, physicians, nurses or anyone calling me "Mrs." as I am no longer married! I prefer to be called "Ms." if a title must be added, as although I now use my maiden name, I am now a grandmother, and no longer a Mrs., a maiden or a Miss. I grew up in Waitsfield and I guess we were not taught the proper Bostonian type etiquette that Mrs. Reiss prefers. I bet she has learned that since moving here in the 1960's, well after I had left Waitsfield. Everyone I know in the Valley refers to the couple who live on Waitsfield Common in an old Vermont farmhouse as Malcolm and Judy Reiss. Although I do not really know Mrs. Reiss on a first name basis, that is how it is in the Valley. And as for professionals, my female and sometimes even male professionals usually give me their first name and expect me to call them that just as they call me by my first name. My preference is to be called by my first two names, Mary and Alice, because there were far too many Marys and Alices in my families of origin! However if someone is going to be extra formal, I want to be called Ms., and never hesitate to correct the speech offender if they call me "Mrs." I guess both Mrs. Reiss and I are rather difficult to deal with on a professional basis! Or is it just that that is how it is in the 21st century? If so, I think it is a change for the better. Little children no longer have to be treated as somehow "less than" their elders. Isn't that wonderful? So please don't go instituting any sort of training program, Judy, (Oh, I said that word!) for professionals or children. Sometimes we are the ones who have to change or suck it up. Mary Alice Bisbee Montpelier

We need a People's Budget that puts the needs of our communities- including safe and affordable housing- first. Donna French Berlin

Affordable Housing Should be a Priority

Central Vermonts Newspaper

******************* No Fee Unless You Win

Editor: Hi, my name is Donna French. I am member of the People's Budget Campaign of the Vermont Workers' Center. I lived at Weston's Mobile Home Park and lost my home in the flood. We had a mortgage of less than $24,000 when we lost our home. What we found in the wake of the storm was that the situation for affordable housing in Central Vermont was pretty dismal. We were lucky to find another home, but it is definitely not an affordable option. Now we have a mortgage of over $100,000 that is going to take the rest of our lives to pay back. Since the flood we have met so many people who struggle with finding a place where they can afford to live. Nobody should have to worry that they won't have a place to call home. Housing is a Human Right!

Editor: In recognition of the work done by the American Red Cross in communities across Vermont, New Hampshires Upper Valley, the country and around the globe, March is Red Cross Month.

By G. E. Shuman knew a man, who had a friend, who was a friend of Abraham Lincoln. I guess that makes me pretty old. But, facts are facts, and facts are often strange things. That one fact happens to be true. And, no, this is not a riddle, with some strange twisting of words like the old brain-teaser Im my own grandmaw, or anything similar to that. Neither am I writing here about some clairvoyant or supernatural experience of someone, supposedly, speaking with the dead. I dont believe that that is possible. The simple truth is, I knew a man, who had a friend, who was a friend of Abraham Lincoln. And, yes, I mean THE Abraham Lincoln. I have thought of this fact during times when my family has visited Washington D.C. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, looking up at that famous statue of my favorite president, it is difficult for me to believe that someone I knew well, knew a close friend of his, well. Read on, if youd like to learn how this strange fact is possible. It is strange, to look down the imaginary, or not-so imaginary tunnel of time, into the dusty past. Such a sight, to me, is of a wellworn, dry-leaf scattered path, into years of yesterdays, and decades of things which no longer are. In the minds eye, there is a thread, which somehow connects us to that past, as long as consciousness continues. It is a fiber of reality, of the physical, tying us to what once was. Something about the fact that the memory of this cord will be broken at my own death is why I write this now. For some reason, it is important to me that the dusty, mildewy, musty years of the back then and their connection to the now, are not forgotten. The truth is, I have always been fascinated by the idea of time. Another truth is that Im not quite sure that time actually exists, other than in our own observance of the endurance of the things and people around us. I am reminded of the old riddle: If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? Likewise, for instance, in deep space, where there is nothing to wear out, or get old and dirty, and no clock to measure the moments, does time exist, or need to? I guess Im not sure. Things happened in the past we say, or will happen in the future. Things are thought of as being either behind, or ahead of us, as this

I Knew a Man, Who Had a Friend, Who Was a Friend of Abraham Lincoln

is how our minds work. I have always wondered where those things really are, right now. (So, have I given you a headache yet?) And now for my slight thread of a connection, only three people back, to President Lincoln. You might have heard of a very diminutive man with the stage name of Tom Thumb. You may wish to Google Mr. Thumb, if you have not heard of him. Being a famous performer, Tom Thumb, whos real name was Charles Sherwood Charles Sherwood Stratton Stratton, and his little wife, the former and Lavinia Warren wedding Lavinia Warren, were good friends of photo. Mr. Lincoln, and were frequent guests of his at the White House. Mr. Thumb died in 1883, at the age of 77, but Lavinia lived on until 1919. During her later years, around the turn of the century, Mrs. Thumb frequented the small town of Palermo Maine, and happened to stay there at the Shuman House, a small hotel which was operated by my great-grandparents. My grandfather was a young boy of about ten at the time, and was in charge of caring for the guests horses; a chore he disliked very much. During this time, he and his mother got to be good friends with Lavinia (Warren) Thumb And then the thread of time extended out, all the way to us, and to now. Gramp Shuman lived well into his nineties, and I knew him for many years. Therefore, and without trickery or exaggeration, I knew a man, who had a friend who was a friend of Abraham Lincoln. That old thread of time is, indeed, a strange thing. If only it were, instead, a wire over which we could communicate. I would love to hear some of the conversations that must have taken place in the parlor of the old Shuman House. I guess Ill have to work on that.

Senate Report: Sample of Town Meeting Survey Comments from Washington County
by Senator Bill Doyle BARRE Vermonters need help; we need people working together to help us in both parties. Our parties in Washington are fighting against each other. Maybe someday they will see through their greed. We may complain about Vermont, but is certainly better for residents than in other southern states. Im concerned about pedestrian signs, street signs, railroad signs, and the conditions of our sidewalks in the state of Vermont. BERLIN The more the state supports financially, the less the taxpayer has control.

No to turbines; the state has a fit about cell telephone towers, now they want to ruin whats left of the state. MIDDLESEX The country and state has lost its backbone. The social programs of Greece, Spain, Egypt and other lands show that socialism doesnt work. Build a strong ethics and youll have strong people. True freedom and unity is everyones responsibility. I think we should encourage personal renewable energy systems by having individuals produce their own power.

retire here. Increase penalties for the distracted drivers, also smart phones, iPads, iPhones, texting, video games, Blackberry units, TV screens, laptops, etc. etc. It should be against the law to furnish non-alcohol beers to minors like ODouls. I believe our rivers and streams should be dredged and cleared of the debris thats causing flooding. That used to be done after the 1927 flood. That clean up of rivers would safe guard the State Complex, wouldnt it?

Essex Junction; a brother, John Ouellette, of Madison, Wis.; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. CHALMERS, JAMES ELLIOTT, 70, a longtime resident of Waterbury, passed away in the comfort of his home on March 1. Born in Burlington on March 6, 1941, he was the youngest of four sons of the late Andrew and Oneida (Tassie) Chalmers. Jim attended Burlington High School where he played football, before moving to Montpelier, where he was a 1959 graduate of Montpelier High School and developed many close friendships. He continued his education at both Husson College and Montpelier City College, studying accounting. Jim had a long and successful career in sales working for the Burroughs Corp., Shepard Supply, Gallagher Lumber, as well as Plant and Griffith Lumber Co. A car enthusiast, Jim was a salesman for Wheeler Chevrolet in Waterbury, owned and operated his own new and used auto sales business in Waterbury called J.C. Cars and Trucks, worked for Valley Motors in Bethel and then was employed in sales by the Overhead Door Co. of Williston, from which he recently retired. Jim was a natural salesman and made many friends throughout his career. Most recently, Jim enjoyed making long-haul trips for Green Mountain Messenger as it satisfied his love of driving the open road. Jim was an active member of his Waterbury community, serving on the select board, zoning board, planning commission, and was a charter member and president of the Waterbury Jaycees where he coined the phrase that appears on town signage, "Waterbury -- Vermont's Recreation Crossroads." Jim also served as Waterbury's representative and president for the Central VT State Police Community Advisory Board and was a member of the Sure Enough Investment Club. In his leisure time, Jim enjoyed playing Hearts and Bidwist, camping in South Hero, co-chairing Thursday night safety meetings and Friday afternoon board meetings, watching NASCAR and attending races. The most important part of Jim's life was his family. He and Suzie logged many miles to attend their children's sporting events, make college visits and more recently, to visit them and their growing young families.

Merrill predeceased Katherine on June 19, 2003. Katherine attended elementary school in Waitsfield and was a graduate of Burlington High School. As a young woman, she worked as a clerk at the Waitsfield Post Office and then following her marriage, was busy and happy as a homemaker and raising her family. Katherine later returned to work at the former Alpen Inn in Waitsfield where she was the head of housekeeping for over 20 years, and from which she retired. Her memberships included the Mad River American Legion Auxiliary Unit 75, of which she was a charter member. In her leisure time, she enjoyed vegetable gardening, flower gardening -- especially "Mountain Pinks," picking wild raspberries, going for walks and spending time enjoying nature and the outdoors.

They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times We have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something So there wont be any doubt, Youre so wonderful to think of but so hard to be without. We cannot bring the old days back, when we were all together The family chain is broken now, But memories live forever. Miss you, love you forever.

t is both with a humble spirit and great pride that I address you today to eulogize one of the most amazing woman I have ever known, Edith Mae Cameron Mikkelsen. I have had the pleasure of knowing Edith for over 46 years. She has always been an essential part of the Whitcomb family working side-by-side with Brent, his grandparents, Myron and Josie Whitcomb and his parents, Bob and Pauline. Edith was born on January 6, 1910, the daughter of Alexander and Eva Cameron. There were ten children in the Cameron clan, two which were twins, Allen and Alice. Their home in East Barre was quite small and as the babies arrived, Mr. Cameron built a room over the garage for the girls. Although it was not very large, Edith would say that it was full of hustle and bustle but mostly love. The boys were allowed to run free most of the time but Mrs. Cameron kept a strict eye on the girls. Edith, who thoroughly disliked housework, was the daughter who was more apt to sneak out to rough house with her brothers. They taught her how to smoke, play baseball, drive a car and yes even cuss! My children grew up loving to hear stories of the good-ole-days when she was young. In the first few years of her life, Thomas Edison had invented the filament for the electric light bulb and the first talking motion picture, the first automobile electrical ignition system was invented ( to replace a crank) the first ladys bra was invented, life saver candy, the zipper, cornflakes, windshield wipers, crayons and teddy bears, tea bags, the Wright Brothers invented the first motored manned airplane. And as the 20th century progressed and Edith aged, she saw miracles being invented every day. She told us about the first TV to come to East Barre. An older couple on the Websterville Rd had bought one. They generously shared it with people in the neighborhood by putting it on their porch where the reception was better and the Cameron kids were allowed to visit, sit on the lawn and watch this amazing picture machine!! When the Cameron family finally got a bathroom with running hot and cold water it was definitely something to celebrate over. They would no longer have to share a tub in the kitchen, yes share, Edith told my children how lucky the girls in her family were because they got to go first! My childrens usual response was YUCK! Edith attended the East Barre School and upon her graduation she was expected to get a job and help her family financially. Edith had other plans; she would go on to High School with or without her parents permission. If necessary she would find a place to live in Barre. Her parents reluctantly gave in and Edith began her high school career. She was an excellent student and told of the days that she and other high school kids would ride horses to school and put them in a barn next door to school. For fifty cents a week, the students could hitch a ride with a local merchant in his horse drawn wagon or sleigh, depending on the time of year. Her favorite subjects were math and business courses and in 1928 she proudly received her diploma graduating with honors. She began her career with Myron Whitcomb shortly after high school. He had established a furniture store and a funeral home working out of the same building. It was common back then for furniture and funeral to be combined as furniture makes were often casket makers too. To say that Edith was his right hand woman or partner is putting it mildly, or selling her short. The two businesses were separated by hanging oriental rugs, so at any given time, Edith would guide mourners into the funeral part of the building to pay respects or lead prospective buyers into the furniture part to sell a sofa, table or wallpaper etc. . At that time, Whitcombs also was responsible for weighing the granite trucks coming down the hill from the quarries, another one of Ediths duties. She also was the chief bookkeeper, the only bookkeeper and became expert at measuring and figuring flooring, window shades and the like. She often said that Mr. Whitcomb would not hear the words, I dont know how so she often had to fly by the seat of he pants. And so the relationship between Edith and Myron Whitcomb continued. In 1929, during the stock market crash and the banks folding, Mr. and Mrs. Whitcomb were vacationing in Florida. He spoke with Edith by phone and said that he knew she could handle it. He had total faith in her. She was just 19 years old but managed to meet payroll and keep the business on an even keel without laying anyone off! During the depression years of the thirties, Edith would keep a typewriter in the trunk of her car and they would go to customers homes that were being foreclosed on. Myron would purchase the home and Edith would type up the deed usually on their kitchen table. This would protect the homeowner from losing their home and they would eventually pay back the loan interest free. They also would travel to customers homes and farms to barter for trade. Myron would take a pig for a funeral or a cow or hay for a sofa Needless to say she was never bored. Knowing what was expected of her, she would seek out professionals such as town clerks, accountants or lawyers to make sure she was carrying out her duties properly. She told me that in all the years not one of her deeds or leases had ever been questioned or overturned! There came a day when she was offered a job in Barre with more money. Her father talked her into quitting and so Edith worked up the courage and went to Mr. Whitcombs home to do just that, quit. He invited her in and she told him about her job offer which would involve more money. He proceeded to agree that it was a good offer but that traveling back and forth to Barre every day would be expensive and having to eat lunch out would be expensive also. By the time he got done talking to her she agreed to keep her job with him with no raise. She said that she left a little dazed and confused and that Myron was sure a smooth talker. Edith and her sister, Eva Jane bought their first automobile together for a whopping $200.00. It was a 1926 Ford Model T. Since Eva Jane worked in Barre she used the car during the work day and Edith had the vehicle in the evenings and on weekends. The Cameron girls bedroom was over the garage and when Edith would get home she would turn off the ignition and push the car into the garage so as not to wake stern Eva Jane whom she was a little afraid of. She said that being an automobile owner, suddenly brought instant popularity; everyone wanted to go out and about with her especially to local dances. The Cameron Womens car would often be seen holding as many as eight to ten young people traveling about. It was at one of these dances that she met the love of her life, Harry Mikkelsen. She often told me that he took her breadth away and was amazed that he was interested in her also! You see Edith never

Reflections on the Life of Edith Mae Cameron Mikkelsen

PELTON, JOAN, a longtime Waterbury resident, died in Morrisville on her 80th birthday, Feb. 15, 2012. Joan was born in Bristol, Pa., Feb. 15, 1932, to William and Mary-Scott Mason. The family moved to Waterbury two years later, and Vermont was her hearts home for the rest of her life. She attended public schools in Waterbury, graduating in 1949. She then attended Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., and graduated cum laude with a degree in mathematics in 1953. While there, she met and married Clifford Pelton, the father of her four sons. Cliffs job took the family to Vermont, Tennessee, Virginia and New York before the couple divorced in 1976, after which Joan returned to Waterbury for the rest of her life. Music was a pleasure that was central to Joans life. She sang in church choirs, musical plays, and folk music clubs. She played traditional New England contra dance music on a variety of instruments in bands such as Fennigs All-Stars and the Pumpkin Hook Old-Time Orchestra, and then she founded and ran a record label (Alcazar) and an independent label distributor (Silo) to record, promote and distribute music that she treasured. She loved the nonstop music and camaraderie of Fox Hollow, Old Songs and other folk music festivals, and Alcazars retail division provided a perfect reason to attend as many as possible. When she was not making music, Joan enjoyed taking a long walk on a country road or sailing on Lake Champlain in the company of family and friends. Joan suffered from a neurodegenerative disease that eventually took her life. She is survived by her brother Peter Mason and sister, Ann Louise Courchaine; her sons William, Jesse and Aaron Pelton; her daughter-in-law, Alison Watt; one grandson; and cousins, nieces and nephews across the country. Her brother

She was predeceased by her husband in 1999 and her sister, Christine Clegg.

January 6, 1910 - December 17, 2011

tos, reminiscing all helped. It was during this time that Edith and I had some tremendous talks. We shared a lot of feelings. She shared with me that after Harrys death she kept having visits from him. She would say that I was going to think she was crazy but that Harry would visit her at night. She would be almost asleep and would feel this weight on the bed. She just knew it was her beloved come to say hello and that he was ok. She would dream often of him and her dreams were comforting. She began to slowly start enjoying her life again. She enjoyed going out to eat, playing cards with her dear sister, Ruth and friends, Bertha and Lilian, her daily calls from dear friend, Mary and visits from family and friends. She took great pleasure in her friendship with Ruth Clark, having tea with her and sharing. She really did have a great sense of humor. Like the time that Harry, being in poor health and quite frail, went out to check on his garden and fell. Edith found him on the ground, could not help him up, went and got an oriental rug, rolled it up, dragged it to Harry on the hill, got him on the rug, rolled him in it and down the hill. In telling me the story, she got the giggles and said they both laughed about it for days. I was horrified! Or the time that they hosted a Halloween party at the farm and she got Harry to dress up as a woman, wig, boobs, make-up, nylons, heels and all. She was quite put out that when all was said and done, he was prettier than she! Or the time when I took her to the emergency room and I went to get a drink of water, Edith was lying comfortably on the cot waiting for the Doctor, she had fallen asleep and woke up to a nurse pulling on her teeth, trying to take her dentures out, but they were real! Edith was very insulted! But got a good laugh about it afterward. She was also very sensitive and took offense sometimes a little too easily. Once, Brent went into the office and commented on how dirty and messy it was well all hell broke loose and for a week Edith did nothing but clean down to the light bulbs, this was done in icy silence, everyone walking on eggs. Needless to say, comments like that were never encouraged. She was also determined. It brought her tremendous satisfaction when she was able to collect on outstanding debts to the businesses. She was known to have Harry dress up in his one suit and accompany her to collect a bill. He would pose as an attorney, can you believe. She felt justified in this little deception. She was usually successful. One time. She and Harry went to visit a deadbeat as she called them. She found him jogging on the side of the road by his home. She had Harry stop and let her out; she ran or jogged beside the gentleman and proceeded to get him to pay up! This was when she was in her eighties! When my youngest, Nicholas was three, he would accompany me to work at the furniture store. One morning Edith arrived around 9:30 am and Nick met her at the door. Good morning Edith, youre late he said with stern disapproval. She acknowledged the fact because she had been doing some bookwork at the farm. No excuse from Mr. Nick and he fired her. She said she was sorry but would have to let his grandfather, whom Nick was more than a little afraid of, know about her firing. He thought for a moment and agreed to hire her back just this once. From that day on, Edith always claimed that she had worked for 4 generations of Whitcombs but was fired only once by a 3yr old! She took offense when anyone tried to treat her as an elderly person. Except when she could use it to her advantage. On a journey home from FL she and I were in the Tampa airport. During these times she certainly didnt mind being treated elderly because riding in a wheelchair got you to your destination a lot quicker and not having to wait in long lines because of your advancing years also was a bonus. When were were checking in, the attendant informed us that we could not sit together. Edith put on her most frail face and complained that she needed me as a companion; she was terrified to be alone. We ended up in 1st class and the picture of Edith sitting in a recliner with a pillow behind her head , a blanket on her lap, sipping champagne and giving me a thumbs up will stay with me forever! She was never bothered too much about getting older, never wanted to be treated as elderly and stubbornly refused the use of a walker or a cane until the bitter end. She would say that she liked growing older as long as she kept young doing it. She liked the person she had become. She knew that she would not live forever but while she was still here, she wouldnt waste time worrying about what could have been or what will be. Edith believed that things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out. I have really struggled to write this Eulogy. How is it possible to take a life as full and complex as Ediths and put it into a few words to truly convey the wonderfully rich tapestry that she wove through the years. Everyone in attendance today probably has an Edith story or a memory. Be you her child, grandchild, great-grandchild, sister, nephew, niece, friend, neighbor, co-worker, she meant something to you or you wouldnt be here and you just knew that you were her favorite! She would want me to stress how much she loved you Bob and Candy and your families and how proud she is of all of you. She also would want me to urge you to stay close because family is so important. To quote Mother Theresa, We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love! That was the essence of Edith! She would want me to thank you all for coming and for me to leave you with this, a reading that she wrote a few years ago and asked me to read it for her when the time came. When we are apart, I want you to keep me in your heart and in your mind. Just quietly close your eyes once in a while And imagine me here, smiling and thinking Such thankful thoughts of you. For I have spent so many quiet moments Of my own Thinking how much I love you, And how hard it will be to be apart, And how wonderful it is That youll always be with me, Warm and cherished Here in my heart. I love you all so very much! Edith Eulogy by Sandra Whitcomb March 14, 2012 The WORLD page 15

really thought that she was pretty. She was always the smart one, the tomboy and Harry choosing her just astounded her! In 1937, just before the start of WWII and at the end of the depression, Edith and Harry eloped and got married in Bethel where they found a justice of the peace to do the honors. They honeymooned in NY City. The only photo that they had was one of them individually taken in a new fangled photo booth that cost them a nickel each. The booth was only big enough for one..And so began the Harry & Edith or Edith & Harry love story. Through the years their names were synonymous with fidelity, respect and love. Edith told me often how fortunate she was to have married her best friend and that she was thankful every day that love was something she shared with this wonderful person. That is why she never failed to call him every day at noon to say hi and I love you!! They first made their home in a tiny apartment on the 3rd floor of Harrys parents farmhouse. Edith really learned to cook, a job that she never really enjoyed, on a single burner and they had an ice chest to keep necessary food cold. She would drive back & forth to East Barre, a trip she would make for the next fifty-three years and Harry worked on his Dads farm. In 1942, they purchased a farm on the Northfield Road and farmed there for the next twenty-five years. The farm became a haven always welcoming family and friends, for a visit, a stay or to live. Harry was known for putting his nephews to work, no idle hands on the Mikkelsen Farm. One day in 1950, Edith got a phone call from social service in FL. They informed her that Bobby 3 1/2 and Candy 2 1/2, her niece and nephew were in trouble and about to go into foster care. They were trying to locate a family member that would take them so that they would not be separated There was never any doubt that Edith and Harry would. Edith contacted a judge from the Orange County Court who helped in earlier years teaching her about legal documents and how to prepare deeds etc. He gladly spoke with the Florida officials and Edith and Harry passed the required background check speedily and with flying colors! The authorities accompanied the two children to VT. Edith and Harry had rushed to equip themselves and their home for those two babies to live with them. They had basically given up the idea of ever having children of their own. She told me that she had put it into Gods hands and she found that he definitely had a plan for them. They were both very nervous when they went to meet the train in Montpelier. It was in the evening and the first thing that Edith saw was how dirty they both were. Bobby was holding onto to his sister for dear life and refused to let her go. At that moment, Edith became a Mom and Harry a Dad. Edith was true a woman ahead of her time. A woman who could blend her career with the running of her household and helping on the farm. Now she was a mother. She managed to not only survive but to thrive. As Bobby and Candy grew, Edith got involved with all aspects of their life. School, homework, friends, church and Sunday school, music lessons. For many years she taught Sunday school and would have parties and get-to-gethers at the farm. I firmly know that being a parent was Edith most prized role. I know because she told me often enough. Edith and Harry were both very proud of their heritages. Harry, the proud Dane from Denmark and Edith the Scott from Scotland. They made trips to both countries and hers to Kemnay, Scotland the birthplace of her father Alexander, was one of the highlights of her life. There she met the local historian, funeral director, cemetery sexton, Duncan Downie. They became fast friends and communicated frequently through the years. That brings me to an aside. Edith was a woman ahead of her time but she refused to have anything to do with the computer. Letters and cards were her way of communicating. She often told me that a lot was lost when we stopped writing letters because you cant reread a phone call. I think it is safe to say that she became the Matriarch of her family. As her sisters and brothers passed on, she really tried to keep in communication with her nieces and nephews. Thoroughly enjoying their visits and their triumphs and worrying about their troubles as she did with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She often said that if she could put her head on her pillow at night knowing everyone she loved was ok, she was at peace. Harry died on March 21, 2002. She told me that she remembers hardly anything of the calling hours and funeral, gifts of food, flowers and visits. She never slept in their bedroom again but slowly over time she began to heal. Writing acknowledgement cards and looking at pho-

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

The American Cancer Society is encouraging everyone to make a point to learn their family history of colon cancer, and reminding men and women 50 and older to get tested for the disease even if they have no family history. The Society is making it easier than ever to learn about your family history of colon cancer with the Family PLZ! campaign. Colorectal cancer is highly treatable if found in its early stages. Most people should start getting screened for colorectal cancer at age 50, but people with a family history are at higher risk and may need to be screened earlier. The Family PLZ! campaign, developed by the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable for which the Society is a founding member, provides tools to help you search and share your family history of colorectal cancer with your doctor and loved ones. The campaign encourages younger generations to participate in the discussions. Visit for more information. The Family PLZ! campaign is a great way for families to start a conversation about a family history of colorectal cancer, said Kelly Stoddard, vice president of Health and Advocacy Initiatives with the American Cancer Society. Make a point to learn your familys colorectal cancer history, and tell your doctor what you learn. An estimated 143,460 cases of colorectal cancer are expected to occur in 2012, but there are steps you can take every day to stay well and reduce your risk of colon cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that adults maintain a healthy weight by being physically active and eating a well-balanced diet. Limiting the amount of alcohol and limiting intake of processed and red meats are also steps you can take every day to reduce your risk of this disease. Screening for colorectal cancer has been proven to reduce deaths from the disease both by decreasing the number of people who are diagnosed with it and by finding a higher proportion of cancers at early, more

treatable stages. Overall, colorectal cancer rates have declined rapidly in both men and women in the past two decades, due in part to early detection and removal of precancerous polyps. However, only half of the U.S. population aged 50 and older have been tested. The American Cancer Society is making progress against colorectal cancer and is saving lives. Society-funded research has led to improved understanding regarding the link between diet and colorectal cancer, and the development of drugs to treat colorectal cancer. In addition, the Society and its advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action NetworkSM, are working to ensure that all Americans who need colorectal cancer testing and treatment have access to them. The Society recommends the following tests to find colorectal cancer early: Tests That Detect Adenomatous Polyps and Cancer Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years, or Colonoscopy every 10 years, or Double contrast barium enema (DCBE) every 5 years, or CT colonography (CTC) every 5 years Tests That Primarily Detect Cancer Annual guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (gFOBT) with high test sensitivity for cancer, or Annual fecal immunochemical test (FIT) with high test sensitivity for cancer, or Stool DNA test (sDNA), with high sensitivity for cancer, interval uncertain.

Local residents Pat and Scott Sainsbury, Denise and Ben Sanders, Bob and Bev McMullin, Art and Linda Hendrickson and others are being recognized for their leadership in the 2003-2010 effort to protect the environment and the health of people in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. Members of local groups, the Mad River Neighborhood Association, have been selected from over 100 nominees to receive one of Toxics Action Centers 25 Years of Victories Awards. Award winners were chosen by a selection committee of distinguished environmental and public health professionals and were honored at the Environmental Action 2012 conference in Boston on March 3rd. Lois Gibbs of the 1970s Love Canal toxic cleanup case handed out the awards and congratulated the winners. The Mad River Neighborhood Association worked tirelessly to protect Vermonts environment. Had it not been for their efforts going door to door, person by person, and getting the word out then one of the most beautiful corridors of our state would now be overcome with polluting industry, heavy traffic, noise, and diesel truck emissions, said Kalyn Rosenberg, a community organizer with Toxics Action Center. In 2000, River Development LLC proposed the siting of a large rock quarry in the middle of a rural residential area in Moretown. The quarry would have stored waste in lagoons directly above homes and the Mad River. The Mad River Neighborhood Association and Toxics Action Center packed public hearings, brought in experts, and gained media coverage in local papers. The work resulted in permit denials at every step of the process. Despite the victories, the developer appealed and the fight went to T Mad EEKS court, so the HIS WRiver Neighborhood Association turned its SPECIA Tues attention to Wed : Hot Hamburglegal battles.

Moretown Residents Recognized for Outstanding Environmental Leadership

every regulatory and judicial determination go in our favor was deeply gratifying. The 25 Years of Victories Awards recognize 25 of the most successful local efforts to clean up or prevent toxic pollution across New England between 1987 and 2012. Those years correspond with the 25 years that Toxics Action Center, an environmental group based in Montpelier, has been working with neighborhoods and community leaders. Toxics Action Center was inspired into being by the mothers of Woburn, Massachusetts who took action to protect the health of their children when the chemical company W.R. Grace contaminated their drinking water. The Woburn leukemia-cluster eventually claimed the lives of 14 children. In response, in 1987 a group of public health and environmental advocates created an organization to help residents who faced their own Woburn situations. Toxics Action Center known in those days as the Massachusetts Campaign to Cleanup Hazardous Waste began organizing citizens to raise and pass ballot initiatives to protect citizens from harmful toxic waste. The first initiative increased enforcement, cleanup, and citizen access within Massachusetts Superfund system. Now Toxics Action Center has offices in every New England state and works with over 80 communities each year. Toxics Action Center was there with us from the beginning. They enlightened us as to how the process would unfold and what would be needed in organization and attitude to see it through. They helped us understand how decisions would be made and by whom, and how we could have impact, added Scott Sainsbury. Toxics Action Center has worked side by side with over 700 communities and directly trained over 10,000 people.

Looks like warmer weather is on the way; certainly at press time is was. So lets start wearing those skirts we were so reluctant to wear because it was so cold. Last week we looked at the pencil skirt and what to consider when shopping for pencil skirts depending on your body type. This week lets look at the A-line skirt. A true favorite for all gures. An A-line skirt sits snugly at the waist, kisses the hips and thighs but does not cling. It is wider at the hem and usually the are on the A-line varies. The hem usually falls just below the knee, but it can vary depending on leg length. Its a great look for all gures; just remember there are variations to length and skirt hem width. Considering that, youll be all set!

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 1-800-649-2424. 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 1-800-649-2424, or consult a health care provider.

Q: I have an All-Star baseball signed by Joe Torre and others. I am enclosing a picture and hope you can provide me with additional information. -- Linda, Richibucto, Canada A: I examined the picture, and I believe the signatures on your baseball are stamped and not genuine. Several of the signatures go into the sewn part of the ball, and they appear too uniform. I recommend you show the ball to several dealers in your region for their professional opinion. *** Q: During my husbands tour of duty in Europe during World War II, he purchased some small wood carvings, two of which are marked. Would they be of interest to a collector? -- Lila, Billings, Mont. A: I was unable to find the marks you sent me in any of my references. This doesnt mean they have no value. To determine exactly what they might be worth, the time has come to consult a professional appraiser, and you should expect to pay for this service. Donald Hull of the Hull and Allen Auction Group is a local certified appraiser and might be able to help you. His contact information is P.O. Box 31122, Billings, MT 31122, and

*** Q: I have a 1953 Prairie Farmer WLS Family Album in excellent condition. What is its value? -- Herb, Lombard, Ill. A: WLS Radio signed on the air in Chicago in 1924. It broadcast with 50,000 watts and was a clear channel. Because of this massive footprint, the broadcasts could be heard throughout the East and Midwest. One of the stations most popular programs was the WLS Barn Dance, which originated at the 8th Street Theater in Chicago. As WLS approached its 30th anniversary in 1954, the station published the souvenir booklet you own. It is worth about $25. *** Q: I have old Archie comic books from the 1970s, most with cover prices of 15 cents. They are all in fair to good condition. -- Joyce, Clewiston, Fla. A: Robert Overstreet, author of The Official Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide published by House of Collectibles, lists most Archie comics from the 1970s in the $1 to $5 range. Condition is extremely important in determining the value of comics. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Sick Cat Cant Stop Pooping

DEAR PAWS CORNER: My 8-year-old longhaired cat, Buster, has gas and diarrhea. He was given Flagyl for two months with no improvement. Then he took three months of probiotics, and no improvement. Now he gets 5 mg of prednisone and 5 drops of Rescue Remedy daily. His butt has been shaved to help keep him clean, and I wash it once a day. Buster eats special cat food, but that doesnt help his digestion either. We have quarter-sized circles of poop all over the house, and I am breaking my back cleaning the carpet and floor. My husband says to euthanize him. What more can I do? -- Pat R., via email DEAR PAT: Such long-term diarrhea is certainly cause for concern, and I know it can be intensely frustrating to care for and clean up after a sick cat. Please convince your husband to shelve the euthanasia suggestion, however. Buster sounds like he has inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)- a term that describes a collection of symptoms, such as frequent (or constant) diarrhea, but not a specific cause. Flagyl is a common treatment for IBD, as is prednisone. Rescue Remedy is a natural remedy to calm pets. Busters vet should run a number of tests, if he or she hasnt already, to rule out bacterial infection, parasites or a metabolic condition. If a conclusive cause isnt found, you must try and find ways to mitigate his symptoms. The change in diet also is recommended in case a food allergy is the problem. Youre feeding Buster a specialty cat food, but if it isnt working, try other brands or even try making homecooked cat food. Additional information can be found online. And realize youre not alone: Many owners are caring for cats with IBD. Please dont give up on Buster.

Lori Pinard

across mainly northern mountainous areas of Vermont, There will be a dip in the temperature from the very mild conditions experienced since Sunday. But this will be a good thing for Sugarers and will help to recharge the maples for good sap runs later this week. Any snowfalls this time of year play a role keeping temperature cold enough to freeze at night. Unsettled weather will exit out of the region but only briefly so. Then its back to a similar milder trend again going into this weekend with basically 50s by day and generally 30s to low 40s by night. Last Weeks Weather Extreme Range in Temperature The usual cold start to last week featured temperatures as cold as minus 21 at Island Pond Airport for the states officially recorded lowest, and as high as 77 degrees at Chester. This extreme range of temperature within the state of Vermont was phenomenal 98 degrees!! Thus is what can happen during the usual sugaring and mud season months of March and into April all prior to leaf-out. Cold still winter like pockets such as Island Pond airport can get quite cold when clear calm nights of arctic air settle in. Just the same that arctic air residing locally is usually a part of the same weather system, in this case a dome of higher pressure which then shifts eastward allowing for a very warm and spring-like return flow of air. This warmer air riding on southwesterly winds has brought warmth from climes that are snowless and react quickly to the now rising sun angle. Such that it is one can get humongous range between maxima and minima of temperature. The ridge of higher pressure broke down and brought a couple smaller weather systems late last week and brought some rains and wet snows, especially to the northern areas. Snowfall of nearly a half foot accrued at northern border location of Averill with most of that snow on the back side of a cold frontal boundary that also brought gusty winds over 40 mph in a few spots. The breezy March weather pretty typical but the warmth and lack of valley snow cover this early not so much. Vermont Weather Stats last week ending Monday morning March 12th Highest temperature: 77 degrees at Chester Thursday the 8th Lowest temperature: -21 degrees at Island Pond Airport Tuesday the 6th Heaviest melted precipitation: 0.87 Jeffersonville ending Friday morning the 9th Heaviest Snowfall: 5.9 inches at Averill ending Friday morning the 9th Most Snow Depth: 68 inches at the stake Mount Mansfield Monday morning the 12th Global Weather Facts For Last Week Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 108 at Gaya, Niger. Last weeks coldest temperature: Back to the S. Hemisphere to minus 63 back in Antarcticas Vostok Research station. Latest CO2 Reading from Mauna Loa Observatory Hawaii Carbon dioxide levels were measured at 393.65 in February. This was a rise of 1.89 parts per million since one year ago. This February reading was part of steady rise carbon dioxide levels which traps incoming solar irradiance and warms the our planet. A measurement of 350 of lower was optimum for a stable climate. 350 parts per million last occurred back in 1987. CO2 readings will now be updated weekly, usually about two weeks behind. During the week ending March the 3rd the CO2 reading was 393.88 ppm. Weather Trends AheadMud Season each afternoonfirmest driving each morning.. Starting Wednesday after a shot of some minor sugar snows Next Week Record breaking warmth? I might be the end of the line for Sugarers starting next week where there will be a period of extraordinary warmth. We might be seeing not only 60s but 70s. Nights were likely to be in the 40s curtailing any Maple Trees to recharge. But on the flip-side T-shirts and shorts? Very possibly. Check out Weathering Heights on Facebook
Orange was showing where snowmelt of even bare ground has shown up this week after recent mild weather, with still plenty of snow in the higher Green Mountains secondary ranges across the region. The darker oranges were where snow was earlier in the weekend. The purple areas were still showing better than 20 inches snow depth with around 68 inches at the stake atop Vermont highest peak Mount Mansfield.
