Last week, Princess House awarded

(CKA) a Share the Warmth gift of 50- and
30-quart stainless steel stockpots worth $750
to help CKA continue the good work it does
within the community.
Princess House also awarded a certificate

Give to GMUW in Honor of Your Loved Ones

The holidays are upon us and, like many


people you may be hurrying to finish all
Christmas preparations before the big day and
wondering how you will ever get it all done.
Green Mountain United Way suggests that
you take a moment to relax and think about
the real meaning of the holidays family,
friends and the sense of community rather
than just the commercialized tone that seems
to prevail.
All year long, your local United Way
works to address the needs of people right
here at home through early education programs, financial literacy workshops, healthy
living support and assistance with basic needs.
With this in mind, your contribution toward
these initiatives, in honor of a loved one for

whom you have no idea what to buy as a


Christmas gift, would help further our work.
GMUW is committed to placing as much
of its resources as possible back into the community for the benefit of people of all ages.
In 2014, only 6.18% of our income was spent
on fundraising and overhead. In other words,
nearly 94 cents of every donated dollar was
re-invested into the community through vital
programs that assist people to gain better
quality of life.
Make life easier for yourself and send your
tax deductible donation in honor of your
loved ones to GMUW at 1 Conti Circle, Unit
3, Barre, VT 05641. GMUW will be happy to
send acknowledgement to you and them of
your gifts.

The people in your life


deserve something special...

On Dec. 9, Rita Durgin, Family Assistance Specialist for the Family Readiness Program/VT Army
National Guard, at the Berlin Armory in Berlin, VT, accepted Christmas donations for two anonymous
veteran families from the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 10-Barre. This is the third year Unit 10 has
been involved with helping to fulfill Christmas wishes for our veterans.

Twin City Subaru Shares the Love with


Vermont Foodbank

The 2015 Subaru Share the Love is in


full swing and Twin City Subaru is again
participating. Twin City has chosen the
Vermont Foodbank as their hometown charity to be added to the list of organizations
that customers can select to receive the 2015
Subaru Share the Love donation.
Share the Love will run through January
2, 2016 and allows Subaru retailers the opportunity to select charities operating in their
community to be included in a list of organizations that new owners can select from to
receive a $250 donation from Subaru up to
$15 million.
Last year, Twin City Subaru and their customers donated $35,639 to the Vermont
Foodbank.
Our customers love the Vermont Foodbank
and we are excited to again partner with them
to provide meals to the 153,000 people who

receive food from the Vermont Foodbank,


said owner Dave Birmingham.
We couldnt be more excited to partner
with the team at Twin City Subaru again this
year, said John Sayles, Vermont Foodbank
CEO. Last years donation provided more
than 100,000 meals for our neighbors in
needand the need has never been greater.
Each year the Foodbank and our network of
food shelves and meal sites provide food for
1 in 4 Vermonters. And during the winter
months, our neighbors in need are choosing
between heating their homes and putting food
on the table. No one should have to make this
choice and with the help of Share the Love
this holiday season, we are working to ensure
no one in Vermont will go hungry.
Twin City has already raised $12,500 for the
Vermont Foodbank and hopes to more than
double that total before the end of the year.

The Vermont Educational


Opportunity Programs (VEOP)
recently
honored
Vermont
Technical College Math and
Science Skills Specialist Linda
Segovia Wise as the recipient of
the 2015 New TRIO Professional
Award. This prestigious award
honors professionals who are new
to their positions but have demonstrated dedicated service to TRIO
and similar Educational Opportunity
Programs. Segovia Wise was recently elected
as the President of VEOP and was very surprised to receive the award.
The honor was presented to President
Segovia Wise at the Annual VEOP Conference
at Vermont Technical College on Oct. 13 by
her long time mentor and supervisor Susan
Polen, Director of the Center for Academic
Success at the college. The Center is partially
funded by the federal TRIO Student Support
Services grant. The Student Support Service
program at VTC helps first generation, lowincome students to stay in college. Participants,
who include college students with disabilities, receive tutoring, counseling and remedial

instruction. Vermont has 6 Student


Support Services programs, serving more than 1,300 first generation, low income and disabled students.
Segovia Wise began working as
a full-time employee at Vermont
Technical Colleges SSS TRIO
program in October of 2011. She
transitioned from a part-time
Vermont Tech Tutor (and sometimes adjunct math professor) to be the fulltime Math/Science Specialist serving SSS
students. She has tutored full-time, providing
1:1 and small group tutoring and often will
have two study groups for two classes going
on at the same time in two different rooms. In
addition to her increase involvement in VEOP,
she has continued to take on more and more
responsibility within the Center for Academic
Success at VTC, the home of TRIO SSS. She
is creative in her approaches to serving students as well or better with less financial support. She has developed new systems to
streamline the tutoring process, is quite adept
with all IT issues and has become the programs go-to person.

The WORLD

December 23, 2015

For the third year in a row, Vermont has been ranked the
second healthiest state after Hawaii in the 2015 edition of
Americas Health Rankings from the United Health
Foundation.
Vermont has the nations lowest violent crime rate, second
lowest rate of infant mortality, third best percentage of people
who have health insurance, third best primary care physician
to population ratio, and the fourth lowest rate of children living in poverty. Vermont has the fifth lowest rate of adult
obesity, and ranks sixth best for physical activity, and adolescent vaccinations.
By many public health measures, Vermonters fare well,
said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD. At the same
time we know that Vermonters are not all equally healthy.
Closing the health gap between people with higher education
and income and people with less education and income is our
collective challenge.
Vermont was ranked among the nations worst (#44) for
disparities in health status, measured as the difference in
reported health status of people with more education compared to those with less education.
The Health Departments State Health Improvement Plan
2013-2017 has three priority goals: 1) reduce the prevalence
of chronic disease caused by tobacco use, physical inactivity
and poor nutrition, 2) reduce the prevalence of substance
abuse and mental illness, and 3) improve childhood vaccination rates.
The smoking rate for adults is now 16.4 percent (#15 of the
states), down from 30.7 percent in 1990, 19 percent of adults
are physically inactive (#6), 20.6 percent drink excessively
(#41). Vermonters report an average of 3.4 days of poor mental health a year (#16), and there are 12.9 drug deaths per
100,000 people (#20). At 71.8 percent, immunizations for
young children have improved, rising from #37 in 2014 to #26
in 2015.
Behaviors like smoking, excessive drinking, inactivity and
poor nutrition, are by far the greatest contributors to poor
health, and the greatest challenge for us all, said Dr. Chen.
Behavior change is difficult, but we can base our policies and
design our environments in such a way as to help make
healthy choices the easier choice.
The Health Department is leading Gov. Shumlins Health in
All Policies Task Force to incorporate health considerations
into decision-making across all sectors of state government
from health and human services to transportation to housing
and community development to education and energy.
Vermont has been ranked as the healthiest or second healthiest state for seven consecutive years.

Vermont Medical Centers new ExpressCare in Waterbury
Center is scheduled to open Jan. 4. Located at 76 McNeil
Road, off Route 100 near Petes Greens Waterbury Farm
Market, it offers quick and easy walk-in medical care with no
appointment required.
The 6,000-square-foot Waterbury Center clinic is the hospitals second ExpressCare facility and is similar to the Berlin
clinic on the Barre-Montpelier Road, which opened in 2014.
Designed as a safety net for adults and children with minor
illnesses and injuries who cannot access their primary care
provider, ExpressCare will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
seven days a week, 365 days a year. All insurances will be
accepted. All Vermonters and visitors to Vermont are welcome.
People in our community need a convenient way to get the
treatment they need when they cant get in to see a primary
care provider, said Judy Tartaglia, CVMC President and
CEO. Accidents and illnesses can happen any time. It is

important for us to be able to help our neighbors, our friends,


our family, and the visitors to our state when they need us
most.
The clinic provides a lower cost alternative to the emergency room and includes on-site X-ray and lab services.
ExpressCare providers will use the same electronic medical
record as CVMC physician offices, providing seamless, quality care between the clinic and primary care doctors. Dr.
Richard Burgoyne will serve as the ExpressCare Medical
Director for both facilities and oversee a staff of physicians,
ER trained physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
In the last year we have seen twice as many patients at the
Berlin ExpressCare facility as we initially expected, said
Tartaglia. There is a real need for this type of service and we
expect to see the same kind of demand in Waterbury Center.
CVMC is the primary health provider for 66,000 people in
Central Vermont and employs more than 120 physicians and
60 associate care providers.

Major Funding Enables


Montessori School of Central
Vermont to Move Toward
Expansion; Fundraising
Continues

Montessori education in Central Vermont has received a


sizable boost, thanks to a loan/grant combination from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), grants from the
Vermont Community Development Program (VCDP), and
other private foundations and donors.
Over the last two years, the Montessori School of Central
Vermont (MSCVT) has engaged in a development plan to
raise $1.9 million with the goal of purchasing and renovating
the former Knights of Columbus building on Pine Hill Road
in Barre to become its permanent school campus. The School
will soon purchase the property and begin renovations as
designed by Black River Design Architects of Montpelier, in
order to occupy the new space for the 2016-17 school year.
This initiative will enable MSCVT to expand its programs
by 42% at a time when three childcare programs in Central
Vermont have, or will soon close their doors, resulting in a
loss of 74 toddler and Pre-K spots to the community. In the
proposed new location in Barre Town, MSCVT will be able to
expand its new Toddler Program from 7-12 spots, add a third
Pre-K/K classroom (adding 24 new spots) and expand its
elementary program. The student population will expand
from 57 to 99 over the next five years. The opportunity to
expand its programs and services will enable MSCVT to serve
more low- to moderate-income families, including children
and families with special needs.
MSCVT currently draws students from three counties in
Central Vermont: Washington, Lamoille and Orange. Currently
located along Route 2 in Montpelier, the school is growing
steadily as it draws students from across the region.
The USDA Rural Development loan/grant, the VCDP grant
and a generous grant from a private foundation are critical
benchmarks in the advancement of the expansion project.
Fundraising continues in order to ensure the long-term stability and sustainability of the school.
MSCVT will receive a USDA Rural Development
Community Facilities loan/grant combination to assist with
the acquisition and renovation of the facility. The VCDP grant
(sub-granted from the Town of Barre as the direct awardee)
will help fund ADA-compliant design features.
When the construction is complete, MSCVT will be the only
fully accessible independent school in Central Vermont. A private foundation provided a generous grant for start-up funds to
enable MSCVT to create the Montessori Toddler Program. The
Toddler Program began this September with seven children.
The program will be able to expand to 12 children when it
relocates to the new facility in September 2016.

Restoring the True Spirit


of Christmas!

By Brooke Paige
s many of you know, my wife
Donna and I are all about
Christmas. Not so much the consumer craziness of the malls and
big box stores, but sending greetings, carefully selecting modest
useful gifts, decorating the house,
Reginald Owen and Ann planning for the holiday feast and
Rutherford in A Christmas most importantly attending the
Carol,
Metro-Goldwyn- Advent activities, as we prepare to
Mayer(1938)
celebrate the miracle of Christmas.
This year something has seemed different - possibly it
is a lack of that sense of anticipation. Certainly the retailers got their usual early jump on things with their cornucopia of merchandise displayed far too early, alongside
their Halloween wares. We helped decorate the State
House Christmas tree on December 1st and the governor
dutifully lit the big state Christmas tree that same evening,
but few noticed neither the newspapers nor the television
folks bothered to cover the event. While Advent services
began right on schedule, our Pastor overlooked encouraging the congregation to decorate the church until just this
past weekend. Retailers and those politically correct
public figures have been kowtowed into refraining from
expressing Merry Christmas reduced to communicating
Seasons Greetings or Happy Holidays. It hasnt
helped that the big greeting card company began running
Christmas stories (better described as soap operas) in July
or that we have seen little more than a trace of snow, even
here in the Green Mountains.
Things happen for a reason and as we consider all of
this enfeeblement of Christmas we are drawn to the conclusion that these things have occurred in order to direct
our attention back to the real meaning of Christmas the
celebration of the birth of Gods only begotten son and His
message of salvation. In our youth, so many years ago,
Christmas was about family and Church the Christmas
Eve celebration services and a visit to Grandmothers
house for reunion, celebration and a scrumptious meal.
Today with all of the troubles and worries that seem to be
overwhelming our lives, possibly the best tonic is to again
focus on those important essentials of family and God
those things that transcend the concerns of our everyday
lives.
This Christmas, lets make it our aspiration to delight in
the joy of family and friends, and praise the message and
mercy conveyed by the miracle of the birth of our Savior
in a manger, so long ago in Bethlehem. Lets create joyful
memories for everyone, especially the little ones who
will remember them for a lifetime.
Donna and I hope that each and every one of you will
be able to get home for Christmas and enjoy celebrating
the holiday with your family. May the Lord bless you and
keep you; may the Lord make His face shine upon you and
be gracious to you; may the Lord lift up His countenance
upon you, and give you His peace!

Montessori School continued from previous page

MSCVT is at an exciting juncture in its history. This is an


ambitious project and once complete, this campus will put
MSCVT in an excellent position to serve more Central
Vermont families for a long time to come. The new campus
will be in a quiet Barre Town neighborhood, conveniently
located off of the busy Route 2 and 14 corridors, and across
from a lovely horse farm. said Julie Bond, Chair of the
MSCVT Board of Directors. We are very close to achieving
our funding goal. With the launch of our capital campaign, we
are looking for funding partners interested in helping us close
our funding gap to make this vital and exciting project a reality.
The funds we have raised so far enable MSCVT to expand
its quality programming to even more toddlers, preschool and
elementary students, said Kristen Martin. We are thankful to
our supporters, who enable us to address quality and capacity
issues facing early childhood education within Central
Vermont.

Comprehensive New Book on


Vermonts Plants Released

A comprehensive new manual of Vermonts plants has been


released by the New York Botanical Garden Press. The first
reference of its kind since 1969, New Flora of Vermont was
written by botanist Arthur Gilman of Marshfield, Vermont.
Fish & Wildlife Department staff collaborated with Gilman
on the creation of the book and provided the author access to
the states Natural Heritage Inventorys information on rare,
threatened, and endangered plants. The Department also
shared plant specimens with Gilman.
New Flora of Vermont serves as a comprehensive treatment
of all species known to occur in the state, both native and
naturalized. It incorporates the many changes in plant names
and species additions and deletions that have occurred in the
forty-six years since the last edition of Flora of Vermont was
published. It also offers identification characteristics, habitat
descriptions, locations, and degree of rarity.
Arthur Gilman is a gifted botanist with a keen eye for
detail who worked tirelessly on this project for many years,
said Bob Popp, Fish & Wildlifes botanist. Amateur botanists
and specialists alike will appreciate this welcome addition to
the states natural history library. It adds significantly to our
knowledge of the plants of Vermont.
New Flora of Vermont is available from the New York
Botanical Garden at www.nybgpress.org or can be ordered
from local book stores.

For ten weekly sessions, October through December,

Artist Selected for New SPA Studio Residency Program

Studio Place Arts (SPA) has selected artist


Shannon Lee Gilmour to participate in its new
Studio Residency Program, which begins this
month and concludes in late October, 2016.
Gilmour, who emerged from a competitive
field of applicants, is an emerging environmental artist from Montpelier who creates
work from post-consumer plastic debris.
SPA received a small grant that provides
support for an emerging artist to work from a
small private studio at the art center at no
charge for 11 months. The artist will exhibit
her work in the Second Floor Gallery space
from late September to early November,
2016. This type of long-term residency affords
an emerging artist with access to the extensive community of visual artists who affiliate
with SPA; in addition, the residency will
allow the artist to integrate making art with
their day-to-day lives.
Gilmour will be creating a large-scale
installation of sculptural interpretations of
New England rare or endangered plants constructed from post-consumer plastics. In her
project, named Disposable?, she will investigate the link between vanishing species,
pollution, climate change and the future

through the re-use of man-made materials.


Previously, Gilmour developed a community arts project, the Orikaso Memorial
Project, with the goal of reducing plastic
waste via a hands-on, community art project.
Orikaso is the art of plastic folding. (Orikaso
is derived from ori meaning folding and
kaso meaning plastic.) This ongoing environmental art project aims to create more than
1 million orikaso as a memorial for the many
sea birds and marine animals that die each
year from plastic ingestion.
According to Gilmour, her new body of
work to be constructed at SPA during the
residency is, intended to inspire and awaken
memories of connection and belonging in the
natural world while increasing awareness of
the urgency to move collectively toward
transformative solutions.
The Paris summit on global climate
change is, hopefully, an impetus for us to
consider ways to alter our actions and influence how others evaluate key issues, noted
Sue Higby, Executive Director. Shannons
residency at SPA and her culminating art
installation will resonate with people around
our region.

Strong Turnout for DRB Mixer

Denis, Ricker & Brown/Hickok Boardman


Insurance Group threw a great party recently
at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in celebration of
CENTRAL their 150th anniversary of doing business in
VERMONT Montpelier.
CHAMBER OF
Their anniversary celebration was held in
COMMERCE
conjunction with the Central Vermont
Chamber of Commerce holiday mixer, within about 30 days
of the actual November opening 150 years ago.
More than 80 Chamber members and friends enjoyed the
festivities, learned the history of Denis, Ricker & Brown/
Hickok Boardmans Agency and the keys to its longevity.
One hundred and fifty years is a tremendous feat for any
small business, said Chamber Board Chair Leslie Sanborn as
she introduced Peter Ricker, vice president of the firm.
Their secret to a long success? Superior service and community involvement that has spanned the multiple generations
of family members who have worked for the company since
its inception. As Ricker stated in his address to the crowd
Thursday, Our mission and values say it all. We develop
long-term relationships that are beneficial to our clients,
employees, insurers, and community.
The firm began in 1865 as the Brown Agency in Montpelier
and grew until being purchased by Emery Denis and William
Ricker of Denis and Ricker Agency more than a century later,
in 1983. Shortly after the purchase, the names were combined
to create the Denis, Ricker & Brown Agency. Two decades
following, Peter Ricker, son of William Ricker, and Brian
Aitchison, grandson of Emery Denis, along with Hickok &
Boardman, bought the company stock and became Denis,
Ricker & Brown/Hickok Boardman Insurance Group.
Door prize winners of the evening included Terence
Wendelken of ReSOURCE, Bob Rousse of MacAuleys Food
Service, Amy Lewis of the Community College of Vermont
and Denis, Ricker and Browns own Richard Smith.
Prizes had been provided by Vermont Mutual Insurance
Group, A Quilters Garden, and ClearChoiceMD. A Chamber
past Board Chair, Steve Gilman, finally took home the 50/50
raffle drawing prize after trying to win it at countless mixers
for more than two decades.
Pictures from the evening can be found on the Central
Vermont Chambers Facebook page.

Margaret H. Lake

Margaret H. Lake, age 97, went home to be


with the Lord on December 11th, 2015 after
a brief stay at Woodridge Nursing Home in
Berlin, VT.
Margaret was born in Utica, NY to Louis
and Gertrude (Karl) Forse on January 27th,
1918. She is survived by a son Dennis Lake
of Cohoes, NY, a daughter Mary (Mark)
Richter of Northfield, VT, her granddaughter and great granddaughter Jennifer Lyford and Laura Lyford
with whom she lived since her retirement in 2000, and a
daughter-in-law Hannelore (Thomas) Lake. She is survived
by a sister Eleanor (John) Lyles, and a sister-in-law Lucille
(Donald) Forse, many wonderful and treasured grandchildren,
great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, and much
beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was predeceased by her husband Jeremiah H. Lake,
two sons Thomas Lake and Daniel Lake, her daughter Sharlyn
Gleitsmann, three sisters Dorothy Forse, Elizabeth (Donald)
Lake, and Virginia (Martin) Hayes, and five brothers Leo

Margaret worked in Northfield, VT at the Four Seasons
Care Home for the elderly and later as House Mother for the
Norwich University Infirmary operated by Green Mountain
Family Practice for 11 years until she retired. She was always
surprised and touched that so many of the Norwich students
that she cared for stayed in touch with her long after graduation.
After she raised her five children she lived her life according to Mathew 25:35 and 40 in which Jesus said For I was
hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me
drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed Me. and Truly I
say unto you, Because you did this for these the least of My
brethren, you did it for Me.
She did this by faithfully supporting a variety of ministries
all over the world including Bethesda House, an interfaith
ministry to the homeless, the disabled, and the economically
disadvantaged. She particularly approved of the extraordinary
lengths they go to in order to address the needs of the whole
person by encouraging self-respect, personal responsibility,
and the discovery and exercise of ones own unique gifts
while providing a safety net of social services and advocacy
for the most vulnerable members of society.
Even her body was not held too precious to give away if it
could do some good. Indeed, she spoke of it as the last gift
that she had to give. To that end, she donated her remains to
the University of Vermont College of Medicine Anatomical
Gift Program for medical students to learn anatomy.
No services have been planned. Instead, she requested that
we remember her by caring for the poor through memorial
donations made to Bethesda House, 834 State Street,
Schenectady, NY 12307 Phone: 518-374-7873, http://www.

Other passings
KERRY MARTIN BERGER, born June 15, 1959, passed
away Dec. 13, 2015. Kerry was the son of Marvin and Jean
Berger and was born and raised in Rutland, Vermont. Kerry
was predeceased by his brothers Harold and Peter and is survived by his sister, Linda, and her husband, Nick Marro, of
Montpe,lier, his brother Ritchie and his wife, Amy, of
Shelburne, and nieces, nephews and others who loved him
deeply. Tragically, at age 38 Kerry was struck by an automobile, sustaining massive brain and other injuries that undoubtedly would have killed a lesser man. Kerry survived and
thrived thanks to the wonderful care provided by the owners
and staff of Riverview Life Skills Center in Jeffersonville,
Vermont. Kerry lived a full, happy and peaceful life for the
next 19 years after his injury. We would like to extend special
thanks to Cecelia Ellis, of Riverview, whose love and care of
Kerry was totally reciprocated from him to her; she is an honorary, and much loved, member of Kerrys family.
DEBORAH SKEELS BOCKEN, devoted wife, loving
mother and faithful friend, passed away peacefully on Dec. 4,
2015, after a lengthy struggle with congenital heart disease.
Born July 19, 1942, in Montpelier, Vermont, she arrived in
Honolulu after graduating from the University of Arizona in
1963. Debbies love for life and learning propelled her into
worldwide travels, to continue formal education (Master of
Arts from the University of Hawaii), extensive self-study of
history, politics and the arts, and considering every person she
encountered as someone from whom she could learn. She was
a Mensa member. It would be impossible to calculate the
number of lives touched by Debbie in her myriad professional
and volunteer capacities. She served her English students at
Saint Andrews School, her clients in the travel industry as a
marketing representative and those she helped as a certified
financial planner. She brightened the lives of many as a
docent at the Honolulu Museum of Art, as a chess mentor at
Palolo Elementary School, as a parishioner at the Newman
Center, and the numerous people whose suffering was lifted
when she performed Healing Touch at Queens Hospital.

Wreaths Across America at Hope Cemetery

On Saturday, December 12, members from the Capital


Composite Squadron of the Vermont Civil Air Patrol were honored to once again participate in the nationwide Wreaths Across
America event. WAA recognizes the courage and sacrifices of
U.S. veterans by placing wreaths on the graves of the fallen
during the holiday season. Many community members joined
the Civil Air Patrol in this effort at Hope Cemetery in Barre.
The organization has been participating in Wreaths Across
America since 2010. But, this year was a little different. They
were surprised to be notified that theyd be receiving over
2,000 wreaths thanks to a nationwide spike in donations. This
meant that all veterans at Hope Cemetery would be able to be
honored this year. A feat that has never been met before due
to a shortage of donations that the local CAP runs into every
year.

Each live, balsam remembrance wreath is a gift of respect


and appreciation, donated by a private citizen or organization
and placed on the graves by volunteers as a small gesture of
gratitude for the freedoms Americans enjoy. For centuries,
fresh evergreens have been used as a symbol of honor and
have served as a living tribute renewed annually. Wreaths
Across America believes the tradition represents a living
memorial that honors veterans, active duty military and their
families. What began as a pilgrimage by Maine businessman,
Morrill Worcester, to deliver 5,000 wreaths he donated to
Arlington in 1992, has become a national mission to remember, honor, and teach.
For more information on how you can donate towards the
2016 Wreaths Across America, contact the Civil Air Patrol at
capitalcomposite@yahoo.com.

Stringing Popcorn

By G. E. Shuman

hen I was a child, a long time


ago, in a galaxy far away, many
things were different than they
are today. That statement seems to go
without saying, but I still said it. The world
has changed so much since then. Traditions, celebrations, and
even seasonal decorations are not the way they once were. Im
not sure if such changes are good, or bad. I will tell you that
I was not impressed with the rst pre-decorated Christmas
tree I saw in a store.
One thing that my family used to do, when I was a child, at
this time of the year, was to string popcorn to use as a sort of
garland on our Christmas trees. Im not certain if we did this
every year, but I do remember the ritual taking place several
times in the 18 Decembers of my youth. What would happen is that my mom would pop a big batch of popcorn on the
stove, provide us children with a needle and a lot of thread,
and we would proceed to spend that evening watching whatever Christmas special was broadcast that night, assembling
the corn into long strands, to be placed on the tree as soon as
we were done. The challenge, at least for us younger children,
was to string at least a bit more popcorn than we ate, as we
watched Rudolph, Frosty, or Charlie Brown make their onceper-year Christmas appearance on the big old, wooden-boxed
television in our living room.
It would be an extreme understatement to say that things
have changed in my life, and in our world, since that long ago
time. This year, if you were to describe my Christmastime,
you would have to move, not only past that child of the sixties, to one whose years now number in the sixties. You would
need to talk about the fact that not only have I grown older,
but that my children have also, and that my grandchildren are
in the process of doing so, too. The TVs that Rudolph and
Frosty still appear on have gone from being clunky, blurry,
heavy things which took up a good amount of oor space in
our living rooms, to inch-thick, huge and brilliant devices we
take for granted as they hang on our walls.
Yes, things change, as years pass. There is no longer anyone
in our home who believes in Santa, or who is interested in
many of the traditions of that jolly old elf, or of our family.
This year, Lorna and I decided to embrace that fact, as ght

ing it would be stupid and futile. We still went out and bought
a tree, but a much smaller one than at any Christmas past, in
an effort to simplify things, this year. We, without the fanfare
now relegated to seasonal memories, set up the smaller tree in
that familiar corner of the living room. Lorna, the wise one
in the family, then suggested that we use some of our older
ornaments, sort of making this tree a symbol of memories.
She then went to the attic, and located those things, and also
the angel treetop her family had used on their trees, since she
was an infant. She brought that aging angel to me, and I tried
plugging it into an outlet. To her and my astonishment, the
1950s era bulb within it glowed as if it were brand new. We
immediately put that beautiful, angel on the tree.
After that, Lorna began fretting a bit over what would be
the perfect garland on our new, old fashioned Christmas tree.
I didnt know what she wanted to do, and we actually went to
several stores, trying to nd a beaded type of garland she had
remembered from the past, but we never located it. We then
checked the totes of Christmas stuff in the attic, and found
nothing suitable there, either. Then, in probably the only good
Christmas idea I have ever had, I asked Lorna if she had ever
strung popcorn, as a child, to put on a Christmas tree. To my
amazement, and partial delight, she said that she had not. The
fact that I wasnt aware of this, in the life of my wife of 43
years, was astounding. The idea that she agreed to string some
popcorn with me that evening, was even more so.
So, that very night, I went to the store and got two boxes of
microwave popcorn, even as my dear wife located needles and
thread. When the corn was popped we turned on our favorite
shows, and then strung it into what turned out to be the perfect
garlands for our wonderful, old fashioned, Christmas tree.
When this issue of the paper is published, it will be nearly
Christmas day. When you read this column, the holiday might
actually have already passed. So, it is very likely too late to
ask you to try decorating your tree, in an old fashioned way, as
we did this year. That is ne, as next year will be here before
you know it. As you look forward to the new year, you might
want to consider the idea of simplifying, and retrotting other
holidays with just a few things from the past. Some of those
things really are worth doing again. I got to spend an evening
watching TV and stringing popcorn with my best friend.

Reisss Pieces
By Judy Reiss

about anything that is supposed to be a good time.


I like to think that giftgiving is really the least of the good
times ahead. Nope, like most of you, I have thought about
what I wanted to give each and every one of my loves ones.
Because I am now out of the loop I dont know if my choices for each one will be the right thing. But you know, I really
dont care! I have thought about each and every person that I
want to give a gift to and I hope that it is correct. If not, too
bad! Back in the day, I can remember getting a gift from my
grandparents that I thought was pretty dumb. But I told them
I loved it and of course,
they believed me. But back
then everyone was taught
to be polite and God forbid you werent and you
misbehaved, especially on
Christmas. I just hope that
the children of today are
taught the same thing.
But, gifts aside, take the
time to relish your luck
and your family. And of
course, it is the appropriate
time to eat until you drop!
This one occasion is time
to give yourself permission
to eat all the appetizers, the
main meal, including stuffing and potatoes, and of course, dessert. You can worry about
your gure or your diet tomorrow. Christmas Day is time to
eat, drink and be merry!
From my house to yours, I want to be sure and wish you
all a very Merry Christmas. And just for a moment, try and
think about how lucky you are. Christmas should be a time of
reection, and regardless of whether you can get out to church
or not, I know you have a few minutes to give thanks. And I
want you to sit quietly on Christmas eve, whether you have
little children or not, and listen carefully. Hopefully, you will
be lucky enough to hear those bells or even better the sound
of Santas sleigh, and it zooms around your neighborhood.
Believe me, it is time well spent, and you will enjoy every
minute.
So, Merry Christmas, may the joy of the season be yours
and yours!! Judy, Malcolm, Tobi, Heidi, Camden, Nicholas,
Polly, Russ, Sebastian, McKinley, Sarah, Rene, Colby, Charlie, Ellie, Adrienne, Mike and Katie Mei. And of course, Rufus, Lily, Victor, Yul, Clover, Lucy, Isaac, Sully, Kiwi, Koda,
Eddie and Frankie.

Editors note: Judy is still recovering from two heart attacks, so we hope
you enjoy one of her columns from last
December.
f you sit very still, you can probably hear the sound of reindeer bells
and maybe, just maybe, the sound
of their hooves on the roof. And Santa Claus? Well he is hard
at his task of going to visit children all around the world! If
you think about it, he has the hardest job imaginable. Fortunately, since the world is
round, he is able to take, oh
probably, 24 hours to get
the job done. I am very sorry to say, that we no longer
have any young children
living at our house, which
means that Santa will be
able to give us pass. However, the spirit of Christmas
including Santa Claus, is
alive and well at the Reiss
house!
On the 25th of December, all the Reiss family, except Adrienne, Katie
Mei and Mike, who are still
in Montana, will be gathering at Tobi and Heidis house in Etna, New Hampshire. Sarah,
Rene and their children will be coming up from the Cape. Polly and Russ, along with Sebastian, will arrive from Waterbury
Center. Of course, Malcolm and I will be there early and probably stay too late! Please note that I didnt mention McKinley
when I said Polly and her family. This year, for the rst time,
Mac will not be with us. He will be on the Schooner Mystic
and sailing the Caribbean! We will miss him terribly, but this
is his dream job and one that he has thought about for years.
Next year, he will be at Mass Maritime and I would assume
can come home for Christmas Day. So, now you know what
all the Reiss family is doing on Christmas day. And for me, it
is such a wonderful time and one that I anticipate for months
ahead. I just love it when all (or almost all) of my children and
grandchildren get together.
And what about you? I hope that each and every one of you
have a place to go or family and friends arriving to celebrate
this most magical of holidays. Dont think about the work involved or the stress you might put on yourself as you prepare
either to go or have all those arrivals. Life is too short to worry

Senate Report:

Three Governors Illustrate Waterburys


Productive History

By Senator Bill Doyle

aterbury was granted by Governor Benning Wentworth, the


royal Governor of New Hampshire, to Joseph Abbott and 63 grantees in June 1763. Waterbury was originally six miles square, but in time, its land area
was increased by accessions from Middlesex and Bolton. In
1763, many of the proprietors lived in Waterbury, Connecticut
and New Jersey. So the name Waterbury came about because
many of the original proprietors were from Waterbury. The
rst meeting of the proprietors took place in Connecticut. The
next meetings took place in Newark, New Jersey, but in the
1780s, the meetings were held in Vermont.
The rst representative to the legislature was Dr. Daniel Bliss in 1792, and the rst merchant was Amasa Pride in
1802.
In 1880, Waterbury had a population of 2,300, and in 1888,
in town, had 16 school districts. The schools were maintained
and taught by 24 women teachers and one male teacher. The
total budget at that time was $4,600.00. The high school had
36 students, 9 of whom studied French or German.
During its history, Washington County has had ve governors: Charles Paine from Northeld, Deane C. Davis from
Barre and three governors from Waterbury.
The rst governor from Waterbury was elected in 1826, and
had served a term in Congress. In his inaugural address. Governor Butler argued that the law relating to imprisonment for
debt be amended so that commitments would be less. Butler
opposed raising money by lotteries. Governor Dillingham of
Waterbury was elected in 1865. He successfully fought for
the establishment of an institution calling for the training of
juvenile offenders. As a Civil War governor, he was proud of
Vermonts contribution to the Union cause and said: this is a
bright and glorious record for Vermont. And such soldiers, too!
Bravest among the brave; none better ever adorned the history
of any state or nation. We owe to those noble men, living or
dead, an imperishable debt of gratitude, love and honor.
Before becoming governor, Dillingham had been the town
clerk of Waterbury for 15 years, and was ve times elected to
the Vermont Legislature. He was also the states attorney for
Washington County, and three times was elected a state senator from Washington County. He also served two terms in the
United States Congress.
The third governor from Waterbury was William Paul
Dillingham. He was twice elected states attorney for Washington County, and was elected to the Vermont House of Representatives and later Washington County State Senator. He
was also Commissioner of State Taxes for six years, and later

In his inaugural address, he expressed concern about violations of the prohibition law, and suggested the time had come
that imprisonment should be the penalty for the rst offense.
During his governorship, Dillingham supported the election
of a state superintendent of education by the Vermont General
Assembly at a salary of $2,000 a year. One of his greatest concerns was state prisons and the house of corrections:

7. Learn to say no. Friends and colleagues


will understand if you cant participate in
every project or event. Pick and choose what
you say yes to.
8. Take a breather. Make time to eat healthy
and get enough rest. Find something to do
that reduces stress and helps clear your mind
(take a walk, listen to soothing music, get a
massage, read a book).
9. Seek help if you need it. Despite our best
efforts, we sometimes need a little help. If
you are feeling persistently sad, anxious,
unable to sleep, hopeless, please talk with
your doctor or a mental health professional.
Dont let the holidays become something
you dread. Instead take steps to prevent stress
and depression. With a little planning and
some positive thinking, you can find peace
and joy during the holidays.
Dear Grace,
Ive noticed lately that dealing with the
little things in life seem to frustrate me. I feel
overwhelmed by things that used to be a
breeze (meal planning, budgeting money,
housecleaning). I used to work full-time and
handle it all with relative ease, but since I
retired and now work only part-time, I struggle with doing it all. Whats going on? Is this
part of the aging process?
Thanks,
Anxious
Dear Anxious,
There are many things that can contribute
to feeling as you do. Remember, you recently
experienced a major life change when you
retired. Its normal to go through an adjustment period after a life change this big. You
dont mention if youre having any symptoms
of depression, which can include trouble
sleeping (too much sleep or not enough), feeling sad, and loss of interest in activities you
continued on next page

Mediterranean
Diet & Exercise
Add Years To Life

Two new studies have


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

Capitol Grounds Caf and Roastery last


week announced a new, special edition coffee
called Bernies Beans, named after Vermonts
U.S. Senator and presidential candidate
Bernie Sanders.
The coffee is a Central American Arabica
roasted at a full city plus, and is being sold in
one-pound bags with the likeness of Sanders
on the label, a drawing by local artist and
bookseller Rick Powell. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Vermont Veterans
Fund.
We were inspired by how Bernie Sanders
represents Vermonts values on the national
level, said Capitol Grounds owner and
founder Bob Watson. Vermont is more than
just a beautiful place. Its unique for its hardworking, creative, and independent people
and businesses. I think that shows in Vermont
products, as well as the integrity and consistency Bernie brings to politics. We are especially proud of Bernies unwavering support
of our nations Veterans, which is why were
donating 20 percent of all sales of Bernies

Beans to the Vermont Veterans Fund. Thats a


common ground I think we can all share,
regardless of peoples political leanings, he
said.
Vermont Veterans Fund Director Robert
Burke said in a statement, We are excited
that Capital Grounds is giving back to
Vermont veterans by donating a portion of the
proceeds from the sale of their new roast,
Bernies Beans. The gesture is quite fitting in
that Sen. Sanders has been a steadfast proponent of serving veterans throughout his
career, he said.
Bernies Beans is roasted at the Capitol
Grounds Roastery in East Montpelier.
Beginning on Thursday, December 17th, it
will be available for sale at the Capitol
Grounds Caf, located at 27 State Street in
Montpelier. The coffee is also available for
pre-order on their website at capitolgrounds.
com. Area businesses interested in selling
Bernies Beans can contact Capitol Grounds
Coffee Resources Manager and Roaster
Christopher Pyatak at (802) 225-6277.

Salvage Gallery
Opening at
Chandler Center
for the Arts

Chandler Gallery is thrilled


to announce the opening of
Salvage. This thought-provoking group show features
more than 20 Vermont artists
working with found materials. From assemblage and
collage to large-scale sculpture, artists mix mediums and
blur the lines between art and
daily life.
By definition, Salvage is a
rescuing, a saving of things,
and the work included
achieves much more; it transforms, re-imagines and reassembles. From the past to the
page, pedestals and the gallery, viewers will be taken
beyond the banality of the
decay to a place where
remarkable beauty lays within discarded gems rescued
from waste. The opening
reception for Salvage is
January 30 from 5-7 p.m. The
show runs through March
19.
The Chandler Gallery is a
year-round, non-profit art
gallery operated primarily by
volunteers. It is overseen by
Chandler Center for the Arts
and an active Gallery committee. The Gallery is located
in the same building as historic Chandler Music Hall.
The Gallery holds approximately eight exhibits per year,
covering a wide range of artists, artisans and craftspeople
in a broad range of media.
From a single renowned artist
to an acclaimed traveling
show, the Chandler Gallerys
varied and impressive exhibits are influenced by the
enthusiasm, style and innovation of the creators.
Salvage includes works by
Janet Van Fleet, Elizabeth
Fram, Nina Dubois, George
Murphy, Phil Godenschwager,
and Meg Savage.
The show is curated by
Josh Turk.

FRI. THRU THURS., DEC. 25 - 31

y best friend Kurt told his 6-year-old son, Luke,


two nuggets of wisdom.
Santa Claus exists and brings him presents on
Christmas.
Soda is poison
Unfortunately, Luke believes number one but not number
two.
Luke has it backwards. Too much sugar really is poison.
As soon as I heard earlier this year that sugar is the cause
of most of our food-related public health problems, I have
been a believer.
This is the rst time in my life that Ive truly been convinced by a nutrition warning. I am not trendy and Im not
a health nut. I buy burritos at Taco Bell and breakfast sandwiches at McDonalds. I dont avoid chemicals or preservatives and I eat frozen packaged foods every morning.
I am not a calorie counter. But I now read the label of
every grocery item that I getto make sure that it contains
less than 5g of sugar per serving.
That Sugar Film is a fun, inspiring documentary that
reinforced my dietary beliefs.
Jovial young Australian Damon Gameau was a healthy
young father-to-be. In order to become a more knowledgeable parent for his unborn daughter, Damon decided to do
an experiment. For 60 days, Damon gave up meat, nuts, and
veggies and ate sugary foods instead.
Damon went from eating virtually no processed sugar to
40 teaspoons a day. The effects were immediate and upsetting. He gained nearly 20 pounds. His liver became more
fatty. His level of bad cholesterol spiked. This despite the
fact that he was consuming less fat than before the experiment.
And this wasnt from shoving Yodels down his gullet all
day and washing them down with Dr. Pepper. Damon only
ate supposedly healthy foods like granola bars, cereals, and
low-fat yogurt. And he didnt increase his caloric intake.
It turns out that the number of calories you consume isnt
nearly as important as the type of food.
It also turns out that the common sense notion that a high
fat diet causes obesity is a myth.
In the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock ate nothing but McDonalds to prove that fast food is

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS --PG-13-6:15 (3D) & 9:15 (2D)
Matinees Sat. & Sun. at 12:15 (2D) & 3:15 (3D) -Mon. thru Thurs. at 3:15 (3D)

awful for your health. At the time, I thought that it was the
red meat and fries that made Spurlock fat. It turns out that
the hamburger patties and potatoes were the healthiest part
of his meals. The real culprits were the corn syrup-infused
buns and cheese slices and especially all the soda.
Damon doesnt just expect us to trust him when he declares that sugar causes weight gain. Using clever cartoonlike demonstrations, he shrinks himself down and enters his
own blood stream to show how an infusion of sugar causes
the body to release insulin. Insulin metabolizes sugar and
turns it into glucose for energy, and it promptly stores any
excess glucose as fat.
Your body views sugar as a rare treat - as it was in nature - and eagerly fattens itself up to prepare for lean times
ahead. Except in our society, the lean times never come and
the fat stores just keep growing. If youre constantly consuming sweets, the lm argues, its almost impossible to get
thinner.
Damon rightly blames food companies for loading their
products with extra corn syrup and doing everything they
can to hide the fact they are behind the diabetes and obesity
epidemic.
I am just as outraged at schools for failing to give kids
the knowledge they need to make healthful choices. Its ridiculous that my high school felt that I needed to learn about
calculus and igneous rocks but not about the foods that could
make me fat and sick. They taught me where to nd the liver
and kidneys in a fetal pig but never told me that drinking the
soda they sold in the cafeteria was destroying my own liver
and kidneys.
If you care about your looks or your health, please cut
down on sugar. And Kurt: when Luke begins to doubt that
Santa is really visiting your house on Christmas, tell him
that St. Nick is unable to deliver presents this year because
he is suffering from morbid obesity. You know, due to all
those cookies.

Vermont Fish & Wildlife says some bears are still active and to wait for six or more inches of snow
and colder weather before putting up your bird feeders. VTF&W Photo by Kris & Norm Senna

F&W Suggests Waiting to Feed Birds

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department


is urging people to wait for colder weather
and snow before putting up their bird feeders
in order to avoid attracting bears.
The department is hearing from people
who want to know if they should put out their
bird feeders. Normally, December 1 is the
recommended start date for feeding birds in
Vermont, but this years lack of snow is
keeping some bears from going into their
winter dens.
An abundance of beechnuts and apples
coupled with our lack of snow cover this year
have resulted in male bears staying active,
rather than denning for the winter, said
Forrest Hammond, Vermont Fish & Wildlifes
bear biologist. Female bears normally go
into their dens before males. Males tend to
enter their dens in response to most of their

foods being unavailable to them rather than


to cold temperatures. Without snow covering
the ground some males are still foraging for
nuts and apples.
Surveys have shown that feeding birds and
watching wildlife are popular with
Vermonters. A 2011federal survey revealed
that people spend more than $280 million
annually to watch wildlife in the state.
Feeding birds at home is considered the primary wildlife watching activity.
We suggest waiting for six or more inches
of snow that lasts before putting out your bird
feeders, especially if you have been visited in
the past by bears or if there are sightings of
bears in your neighborhood, said Hammond.
Due to lack of snow and frozen ground,
birds are able to forage in fields and forests
for their natural foods.

Vermonters with an interest in bird-watching, from avid birders to newbies, are invited to take part in
the annual Christmas Bird Count, which is happening in Vermont from December 14 to January 5.

Vermont Birders Encouraged to Join


Annual Christmas Bird Count

event are listed on the Vermont eBird website.


The Christmas Bird Count is one of the
longest-running citizen science projects in the
country and possibly in the world, said Mark
LaBarr, conservation program manager for
Audubon Vermont. Not only does it provide
important data for scientists, but its also a
great time for folks who participate.
The Christmas Bird Count originated in
1900 with ornithologist Frank Chapman, an
officer in the Audubon Society, who updated
what had been a traditional Christmas morning bird hunt to include a census of the wintering locations of various bird species. The
count started with just 27 observers and has
grown into one of the largest birding events in
the world, with tens of thousands of people
participating every year.
This is an enjoyable way to spend a winter
day and its also a great opportunity to see
different birds and learn more about them,
said Buck. Id encourage all Vermonters
who are looking for a fun way to see wildlife
and participate in citizen science this holiday
season to grab their binoculars and join in on
this years annual Christmas Bird Count.

This holiday season marks the 116th annual Christmas Bird Count, a favorite tradition
among Vermonts birding community. Birders
in Vermont are encouraged to participate in
the count, which begins on December 14 and
runs through January 5.
Even novice birdwatchers can participate
because every event is led by an experienced
birder. Organizers and participants include
birders and biologists from Audubon Vermont,
the North Branch Nature Center, the
Northwoods Stewardship Center, and the
Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
The Christmas Bird Count is a great way
to join with friends and family to be part of an
historic national bird monitoring project that
helps provide a snapshot of where birds are
wintering from year to year, said John Buck,
wildlife biologist for Vermont Fish & Wildlife.
Participating in the count can be especially
rewarding during years when there are irruptions, or mass migrations of an unusual species to Vermont, such as redpolls or snowy
owls.
In Vermont, more than a dozen count areas
and dates are available where birders gather
together to conduct the Christmas Bird Count.

Hunter Education Instructor Training Courses Offered

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department


is offering several New Instructor Training
Courses for people interested in volunteering
to teach Hunter Education, Trapper Education,
or Bowhunter Education courses in Vermont.
The courses will take place January 10 in
St. Johnsbury, Vt., February 21 in Berlin, Vt.,
and March 12 in Castleton, Vt.
Policies and procedures, field techniques,
and teaching methods will all be covered in
order to give instructors the tools to teach
future Vermont hunters how to have a safe
and enjoyable experience.
The skills and ethics that our instructors
impart to their students will serve them for a
lifetime, said Nicole Meier with Vermont
Fish & Wildlifes hunter education program.
There is no better way for a hunter to give

back to the outdoors than by instructing the


next generation of hunters.
All applicants who pass the training are
required to pass a background check with a
warden and shadow a Chief Instructor before
they can teach on their own. Upon completion, they will then receive their full State of
Vermont Hunter Education Instructor
Certification.
Our hunter education instructors are all
volunteers, donating their time to pass on a
cherished Vermont tradition, said Meier.
The hours our instructors put in will leverage federal dollars that allow the Hunter
Education Program to function.
Those planning to attend should sign up
online or call 802-828-1193 at least one week
prior to the course date.

DEAR PAWS CORNER: I


find it weird that my two dogs,
Shep and Bull, can eat just
about anything (I have to hide
all the pet food), while my cat,
Trudy, will turn up her nose
at most food. And although
shes perfectly healthy, sometimes she gets sick after eating
wet or fresh food. Why?
-- Sarah in Madison, WI

meat-eaters? Sat. 10am-4pm
The answer is: Its complicated, and no one is entirely
sure. A recent study, for example, found that cats have
some genes that are more commonly possessed by herbivores (animals that eat only plants, like cows). These particular genes help them detect bitter flavors, alerting them
to potentially poisonous plants.
This research opens a new avenue into understanding
why cats are more picky about their food than dogs -- also
meat-eaters -- tend to be. If cats are detecting a bitter taste
in their food then they may be less inclined to eat it. And,
a bitter taste also may trigger a vomiting response to safeguard against ingesting what is perceived to be poison.
The studys results could lead to changes in how commercial producers formulate their cat food. Whether that is
a good thing remains to be seen.
In the meantime, feeding a finicky cat remains a trialand-error process. Try small amounts of different foods -dry, wet and fresh -- and note Trudys likes and dislikes.

Clark here as in Clark Gable! I'm a stunning


southern boy (redbone hound, that is) that
showed up at a neighbor's home one day. He
would have loved to keep Clark, but the
human's medical condition prevented it. He
reported that Clark liked to sleep in bed with
him and held his bladder all night! Folks here
think I'm about 5 years old and in my prime. I
have a booming hound voice to let anyone in
the neighborhood know I'm here. Come on

Think Outside the Box: Unique Holiday Gift Ideas


for Pets and Their Owners

By M. Kathleen Shaw, DVM


Vermont Veterinary Medical Association
During the holiday season, more and more pets are included in family festivities. This year millions of people will buy gifts
for their pets and pet lovers in their lives. Of course toys for cats and dogs are always appreciated. Scratching posts, squeaky
toys, balls, and fishing pole type toys are popular. Laser pointers are inexpensive and both dogs and cats love to chase the point
of light. Beyond toys for your pets, we recommend some less common, but definitely helpful gifts.
Being prepared for any emergency may not be a flashy gift, but it could help save your pets life. Consider getting a window
cling for your doors to let any rescuers know about your furry family. Millions of pets wander off each year, unable to find
their way home. A microchip, along with proper registration, can help insure your pets safe return if lost. If your pet already
has one, make sure your information is updated with the microchip company. Consider pet insurance or even a pet Health
Savings plan to help in the event of a serious illness or injury.
Gift certificates for pet stores or to the veterinary clinic are great stocking stuffers for the animal lover in your life. Dont
forget the friends who have large animals or small ruminants. Stethoscopes, thermometers, and gift certificates to local feed
stores or agricultural stores are very useful. Local shelters and rescues do so much great work to help homeless pets and those
with special needs. Why not give a monetary gift (in your pet or pet owners name) to your favorite local animal group?
If money is tight, ask your local shelter what kind of supplies would be helpful. You might have some old blankets, towels,
or even pet items that could get a second use at the shelter and help the staff care for pets. Giving the gift of time by volunteering at a local shelter is always appreciated. A free gift to your pet would be to spend a little more time with your pets each day.
Take time to take Fido for an extra walk or spend some time playing with the cat. You will both benefit.
Our pets give us so much and ask so little in return. Ask your veterinarian about ideas to help keep your four legged friend
healthy and happy this holiday season.

Seven Steps for Making Identity


Protection Part of Your Routine

The theft of your identity, especially personal information such as your name, Social Security number,
address and childrens names, can be traumatic and
frustrating. In this online era, its important to always be
on guard.
The IRS has teamed up with state revenue departments and the tax industry to make sure you understand
the dangers to your personal and financial data. Taxes.
Security. Together. Working in partnership with you, we
can make a difference.
Here are seven steps you can make part of your routine to protect your tax and financial information:
1. Read your credit card and banking statements carefully and often watch for even the smallest charge that
appears suspicious. (Neither your credit card nor bank
or the IRS will send you emails asking for sensitive
personal and financial information such as asking you
to update your account.)
2. Review and respond to all notices and correspondence from the Internal Revenue Service. Warning
signs of tax-related identity theft can include IRS
notices about tax returns you did not file, income you
did not receive or employers youve never heard of or
where youve never worked.
3. Review each of your three credit reports at least once
a year. Visit annualcreditreport.com to get your free
reports.

4. Review your annual Social Security income statement for excessive income reported. You can sign up
for an electronic account at www.SSA.gov.
5. Read your health insurance statements; look for
claims you never filed or care you never received.
6. Shred any documents with personal and financial
information. Never toss documents with your personally identifiable information, especially your social
security number, in the trash.
7. If you receive any routine federal deposit such as
Social Security Administrator or Department of Veterans
Affairs benefits, you probably receive those deposits
electronically. You can use the same direct deposit process for your federal and state tax refund. IRS direct
deposit is safe and secure and places your tax refund
directly into the financial account of your choice.
To learn additional steps you can take to protect your
personal and financial data, visit Taxes. Security.
Together. You also can read Publication 4524, Security
Awareness for Taxpayers.
Each and every taxpayer has a set of fundamental
rights they should be aware of when dealing with the
IRS. These are your Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Explore
your rights and our obligations to protect them on IRS.

Things You Will Need


To Start A Business

Many people dream of owning their own businesses,


while some business owners find that necessity is the
mother of invention when it comes to their careers. In a
volatile economy, sometimes its best to create a job
when finding one proves too difficult.
According to the Small Business Administration, small
firms represent the majority of businesses throughout
the United States, generating more than half of the new
jobs over the past 17 years. An estimated 500,000 new
businesses are born each year. Starting a business is a
considerable undertaking, and theres no guarantee of
success, but the following are a few pointers for men
and women thinking of starting their own businesses.
Understand your potential market. Once an idea is
born, research economic conditions, competitors and
the customers you will be serving. You have to figure
out if theres room for your business, and how you can
provide something the market currently lacks. Conduct
hands-on research and peruse official government data
so you can see how the market for your industry is faring. This information can provide an accurate portrayal
of what you are getting yourself into.
Write a business plan. Business plans help prospective
business owners explain their businesses. The SBA
advises that business plans should include company
descriptions, market analyses (what you learned in your
research), clear rundowns of organizational structures,
details of what you will sell, marketing strategies, and
information on funding the business to eventually realize a profit. Business plans will be needed to attract
potential investors, including lenders.
Gather your financial resources. Funding is one of the
most important elements when starting a business.
Every business large or small has start-up costs.
These include registering the business name, printing
business cards and getting a website or phone line.
Expect scores of business expenses, even if you are
working out of your house at the beginning. If you cannot fund these start-up costs on your own, you will need
loans from financial institutions or private investors. In
some instances, the government may offer assistance.
Prospective business owners may also be eligible for
grants from the public and private sectors.
Consider getting a mentor. A mentor has been where
you are before and can guide you along the process.
Starting a business can be stressful, and this person will
not only offer guidance, but emotional support as well.
Get a good team. Successful businesses often assemble great staffs. Qualified, ready-to-work individuals
can help businesses thrive. Devote as much time as is
necessary to assemble a great staff. You can do this on
your own through referrals or by relying on staffing
agencies that specialize in placing talent.
While starting a business is a popular dream and a
daunting task, it can be made easier with some simple
know-how and support.

ERASE BAD CREDIT FOREVER!
Credit repair companies make
false claims and promises to
erase a trail of unpaid bills or
late payments from your credit
report. However, only time can
erase negative, but accurate
credit information. In addition,
federal law forbids credit repair companies from collecting money before they provide
their service. TIP: If you have
questions about your credit
history or you want to know
how to get a free copy of your
credit report call the ATTORNEY GENERALS CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
at 1-800-649-2424. Dont
send any money to a credit repair company until you check

Features an aggressive directional tread pattern to offer the


bitingedges necessary to provide more traction in snow, hardpackedsnow and ice. The tread blocks feature high-sipe density
in orderto help provide grip in snow while the shoulder and
intermediateblocks are capable of accepting studs (price not

Washington County Sheriffs Department is working with the


Governors Highway Safety Program to send the message to holiday travelers Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Vermont has strict
laws for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol and other drugs
(DUI) and has high costs associated with drunk driving. Local law
enforcement agencies are concerned about drivers and passengers staying safe and encourage knowledge of Vermont laws,
blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels, and standard drink
sizes.

SALES EVENT

Many people like to


begin the new year
with a fresh start, making resolutions to
change bad habits
improve their overall
health. Others may be
interested in changes
they can make that will
present new opportunities, such as career
goals or relocating.
While health- and
career-related resolutions are popular come
the dawn of a new year,
many men and women
also ponder the benefits of buying a new car when the calendar year starts anew.
Professionals in the automotive industry do not always agree
as to when is the best time to buy a new or preowned car.
Some will tell you to shop on rainy days or near closing time
from the dealership, and some shoppers insist that they will
only buy a new car at the end of a month.
Unfortunately, there is no magical day when buyers are
guaranteed to get the best bargains on new or preowned automobiles. Oftentimes, the best time to buy a new car is when
buyers are in the best financial position to make such purchases.
For a variety of reasons, the dawn of a new year may be a
good time to buy a new vehicle. With the holidays behind
them, buyers may have more disposable income to put toward
down payments. Cash gifts received from friends and family
during the holidays can go a long way toward financing a
new vehicle purchase. Whats more, many businesses give
their employees year-end bonuses as a token of appreciation
for a year of hard work. When all of these financial factors are
put together, buyers may find the new year is a great time to
buy a new car.
New model year vehicles will need homes on dealers lots,
motivating dealers to mark down last years models at consumer-friendly prices. Dealerships often slash prices on older
models beginning in October and December, but such discounted vehicles are often still available at even greater discounts come January.
Promotions and holidays seem to go hand-in-hand. In the
United States, Presidents Day, which occurs in mid-February,
is a prime time for manufacturers to drum up business during
a traditionally slow buying time. Prospective buyers can do
their research now and begin comparing car features and pricing, and then be ready to take advantage of sales once they are
announced.
As a new year begins, many consumers consider buying
new cars. But before signing on the dotted line, prospective
buyers should examine their finances.

A SEASON FOR THANKS

NOW HERES A
TIP
By JoAnn Derson

* Whip the whites of your


eggs when you are working with heavy flours, like
coconut and almond meal.
The whipped whites will lighten cakes and muffins.
-- C.L. in Montana
* Mix a little cinnamon into a half-cup of powdered
sugar. Then place a doily on top of a pound cake and sift
the flavored sugar on top. Remove the doily to reveal
the tasty design.
* If you have trouble holding your cat still to clip its
claws, sneak up while its asleep. You might get only a
couple done before your cat catches on and wriggles
away, but youll get there. -- P.L. in Oklahoma (Slow
and steady wins the race, P.L. Your tip works great for
babies, too! -- JoAnn)
* To keep snow off your windshield, use a flannelbacked tablecloth stretched to cover both windshield
and wipers. Put it flannel-side to the glass. Then youll
be able to lift it (and the snow) off your windshield to
drive.
* Have trouble opening jars? Keep a mousepad -- those
nifty computer desk pads -- in your kitchen. The rubber
side gives you a great grip on jars of all sizes.
* In cold winter months, keep your robe (and slippers
or whatever else) under the covers with you when you
sleep. Pull it next to or over you a few minutes before
you get up. Itll be toasty and will help make the transition into the cold a little less harsh. -- Giselle in New
York

As this year comes to an end we wish to acknowledge people within our


community who work tirelessly to make this a better place. In 2006 we started
our Charity of the Year program to demonstrate our commitment to support
those whose charitable efforts strengthen our community. Each year our Realtors
vote for a local charity to support. For every home sold our Realtors donate a portion of
their proceeds to the chosen charity of the year. On December 2, 2015 Heney Realtors
was happy to meet with Sherry Knudsen, Development Ofcer of the Central Vermont Humane Society. CVHS is a
non-prot, 501(c)3 charitable organization with no state or federal funding. They are supported entirely by individual
donors, local business, fundraising events, grants, and small fees for some services. To learn more about this wonderful
organization please visit centralvermonthumane.org
We are thankful to the people at CVHS and all who work and volunteer to create positive outcomes in our local
communities. We are also grateful to all of our Realtors and staff who make the Charity of the Year program possible.

Thank You For Saying


I Saw It In

Keep Poinsettias Looking Great


Through The Holidays

Along with the fragrant evergreens and


twinkling lights synonymous with the holiday
season, poinsettias make up a key component
of holiday decorating.
Unlike holly and some of the other greenery that is commonly associated with the holidays, poinsettias do not naturally thrive in the
colder temperatures. These plants originate in
southern Mexico and were considered an exotic plant when rst introduced
to the United States by Joel
Robert Poinsett, the rst American ambassador to Mexico.
Poinsettias can be ckle
plants and ones that gardening
novices may nd challenging to
maintain. The plants are comprised of green foliage, colorful
(often red) ower bracts, and
the actual owers of the plants,
which are the red or green buttonlike parts
nestled in the center of the bracts.
Because they are a tropical plant, poinsettias can be damaged by exposure to low
temperatures, even if they are only exposed
for short periods of time. They should be
wrapped and protected against the elements
when brought home. For maximum plant life,
poinsettias need to be placed near a warm,
sunny window, or another area that has ample
amounts of light. They thrive in temperatures
between 60 and 75 F and should be kept away
from warm or cold drafts.
Water the plant whenever the surface feels
dry to the touch. Water until it drains out the
bottom, but dont let the plant sit in water.
Over- or under-watering can cause leaves to
drop prematurely and wilt. If your home lacks
in humidity, you may need to water the plant

more frequently. Poinsettias do not need to be


fertilized while the plant is in bloom.
The Ohio State University Extension says
poinsettias can be reowered the following
Christmas, but unless a yearlong schedule of
care is observed, the results usually are not
good. You can speak with a gardening expert
or consult online resources for the proper care
schedule. Caring for a poinsettia year-round
involves gradually drying out
the plant and storing it in a cool
location. The plant later will be
moved outdoors and then back
inside and pruned to keep a full
shape.
Poinsettias are short-day
plants, which means they ower
about 10 weeks after the daylight shortens to about 12 hours
or less. Therefore, to have the
plant in full ower by Christmas, it will have
to be kept in complete darkness between 5
p.m. and 8 a.m. from the rst part of October
until Thanksgiving. Many people nd the affordability of poinsettias makes it more convenient to buy new ones each year than try to
foster regrowth.
Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are
not poisonous to humans or animals, but they
should not be ingested due to the potential for
allergic reactions. Poinsettias can help remove
pollutants from indoor air, which is advantageous during the winter months when doors
and windows are typically kept closed.
Select plants that have dark green foliage
and no low or damaged leaves. This ensures
the best success for keeping poinsettias looking healthy and vibrant throughout the holiday season.
