Arts and Skiing Integrated


in Bolton Valleys 50th
Anniversary Season

Local artist Natasha Bogar has been hard at work helping


to beautify Bolton Valley. Her paintings of local landscapes
can be seen around the resort in several places including on
two new murals, in hotel rooms, the hotel lobby and the
resorts restaurants. Bogar will also lead nine classes this
winter where she will guide guests through the creative
process of making their own paintings.
This year is Bolton Valleys 50th Anniversary and Bogar
has created two eight-foot murals that drape the base lodge
entrance. One mural depicts a Nordic skier on the trails
with the alpine area towering above, topped by puffy
clouds. The other shows the historic Wilderness chairlift on
a powder day. A skier zips off to the left leaving a graceful
line of tracks down the mountain. Both murals have a commemorative 50th logo embedded in the clouds.
I love Bolton Valley, and not just for the skiing. Our
awesome community of residents, staff, guests, and local
skiers co-create the authentic Vermont ski village. Bogar
said. Art has the power to transform spaces. My goal is
to enhance the guests experience when they come to
Bolton Valley. When they see my work, or take a class, it
highlights the natural beauty of our area. I love when art
is infused into a community with public art and education.
Bogar has designed a series of Paint Night classes where
she shares her knowledge of painting with people of all
artistic abilities. Bogars teaching style allows for virtually
anyone to have an enjoyable evening and walk away with a
painting that they created on their own.
For those looking to take home some of Bogars work,
her paintings and fine art prints are for sale throughout the
resort. In addition, BV Sports will be selling a shirt with a
50th Anniversary design created by Bogar.
Visit www.boltonvalley.com and www.natashabogar.com
to learn more about events, classes, and art for sale.
Bolton Valley first opened for skiing and riding in 1966
and this year the mountain is celebrating its 50th
Anniversary. The mountain offers 71 trails for alpine skiing
and riding, over 1200 acres of high elevation backcountry
terrain, 15km of groomed Nordic trails, a complete Sports
Center and Indoor Amusement Center plus Vermonts most
extensive top-to-bottom night skiing and riding. Allinclusive, true ski-to-your-door lodging packages are from
$57/person/night.

Members of Barre Lodge worked with the Vermont Army National Guard to adopt a serving guard family for Christmas. The guard family
consists of Dad, a 25-year-old serving guard member recently diagnosed with bladder cancer, Mom, and 3-year-old son.Their entire
Christmas wish list was purchased along with many other gifts, wrapped and picked up by Family Assistance Center Specialist Rita
Durgin.Thank you to our members for supporting our military and providing them with a Christmas to remember.Over $1000 in gifts and
gift cards were donated. Pictured (L-R): Barre Elks members Jim, Tracy and Dan Fecteau, Doug Rossi, PER Stacy Holden, Esquire Cindy

The Flying Stage at the ReSOURCE store in Barre played host to alt-rockers Anachronist (seen below)
and MadMan3 as well as some indoor blacklight ReUse mini-golf course action earlier this month.

Not Your Ordinary Thrift Store

The Flying Stage transforms Barres ReSOURCE


store into one-of-a-kind music venue

By Matt Coutu
For much of the Barre
community, ReSOURCE is a
local gem that offers gently
used goods at discount prices, while also providing education and job skills training
to those in need. Through its
environmentally conscious
approach to business, they
help serve those who are
homeless,
unemployed,
receiving public assistance,
or are struggling with a disability; in addition to disadvantaged youth.
While ReSOURCE is
already known for its multiple functions, it should be no surprise that the
Barre location doubles as a music venue
dubbed The Flying Stage. The brainchild of
Diana Levine, The Flying Stage is an actual
stage that resides in the rafters above the retail
space of ReSOURCE and is lowered down on
days of performances. The stage was brought
to life with the assistance of YouthBuild of
Barre, VT and a plethora of helping hands
from the community.
The warehouse that ReSOURCE utilizes
was once a staple of the granite industry in
central Vermont, and still, has the original
crane inside that lifted slabs of granite from
one side of the building to another. Yet, just as
ReSOURCEs mission implies, they would
not leave it to rust. The five-ton crane is now
being used for the mechanics that operate The
Flying Stagealong with the assistance of
skilled elbow grease, of course. Within a matter of hours, the sales floor is transformed into
a 150-seat performance venue that could easily host a touring band.
Emerging talent is blended at The Flying
Stage from Burlington to New York City and
everywhere in between.

Our goal is to partner with other businesses and organizations to create an inviting
neighborhood life, and engage the community, says Levine, a musician, producer, and
owner of Re-Bop Records. Barre is a melting
pot of tradespeople and artists with world
class skills and a work ethic like no other. The
community has always found unity in the ideals of artistic culture and the pursuit of social
change.
The Flying Stage was established in 2014
and has since hosted on average three events
per year. However, Levine is interested in
raising that average to once a month. The
events at The Flying Stage are known to be
catered by local restaurants, as well as for
providing family friendly activities such as
mini golf in addition to the music. In order to
boost the spirit of community involvement,
the events are held at hours of the day that all
members of the family are able to enjoy.
For event inquiries, Levine can be contacted at Diana@reboprecords.com. ReSOURCE
and The Flying Stage are located at 30 Granite
St. in Barre.

Executive Order Promoting Businesses


that Fight Climate Change Finalized

An Executive Order signed by Gov. Peter


Shumlin that gives businesses fighting climate change preference in the state contracting process has been finalized.
The new policy applies to any contract
over $25,000, which captures at least 97 percent of state contracting dollars. The state of
Vermont spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year in contracts.
Under the new policies developed in accordance with the Governors Executive Order,
four questions have been added to the solicitation process. These questions let companies
set themselves apart by giving them an opportunity to explain any business practices that
promote clean energy and combat climate
change, including the use of thermal and electric efficiency and conservation measures;
use of renewable energy sources for its operations; efforts to reduce and track carbon emissions; use of and encouragement of employee
use of electric and zero emissions vehicles
including providing workplace charging stations; offering employees an option for a fossil fuel divested retirement account; whether
the supplies or services offered promote
waste, energy and water efficiency. The questions are attached.
The new policies do not supersede other

contracting considerations such as cost or


rewarding businesses based in Vermont or
that manufacture products in Vermont.
However, when all considerations are similar
for a given contract, the new policies require
that a business that has strong climate change
and renewable energy policies will be given
preference over one that does not.
Vermont has a strong legacy of recognizing climate change as a threat to our economy
and way of life, Gov. Shumlin said. With
the White House, the Environmental
Protection Agency, the Department of State,
and the Energy Department all set to be occupied by climate change deniers and skeptics,
it is now more important than ever that
Vermont lead the way in combating this grave
threat.
VBSR thanks Gov. Shumlin and his team
for this action, which we see as effective use
of state tax dollars, said Daniel Barlow, public policy manager with Vermont Businesses
for Social Responsibility. Climate change is
a threat to our economy and our environment.
Todays implementation of this executive
order will create a system that supports companies that take seriously their responsibility
to address climate change.

New Program in Barre Aims to Support


Healthier Communities for All

After many months of preparation and


thoughtful planning a public health partnership between Peoples Health & Wellness
Clinic and Vermont CARES has been given
the green light. The 30-year-old AIDS Service
Organization will open its third syringe
exchange site in the State at the free clinic.
The program offers comprehensive harm
reduction services for residents of Barre and
surrounds.
The Syringe Services Program will open
on January 2, 2017, housed at Peoples Health
& Wellness Clinic, and will be open on a
weekly basis. This public health program
aims to help reduce the risk of HIV and
Hepatitis C transmission and infection through
the disposal and distribution of sterile syringes. Collecting used syringes safely will benefit the community at large.
The program is free and anonymous and
available to anyone who is affected by substance use. Vermont CARES provides people
with a safe place talk openly about their substance use, a place to dispose of used syringes
while replacing them with sterile syringes and
other injection supplies. Participants will also
have the opportunity to talk with staff about

available treatment options in the area. The


organization meets people where they are at
no matter what their goals are.
Staff will also help connect people with
other social and health services they may
need. Vermont CARES provides Narcan, a
vital lifesaving medication that can prevent
overdoses. Staff will teach both the active
substance user and/or their loved ones how to
recognize the signs of overdose and how to
effectively administer the product.
Vermont CARES has a long history of
offering free and anonymous HIV testing and
more recently Hepatitis C testing. Both of
these 20 minute rapid tests will be available at
the walk-in clinic. The partnership with
Peoples Health & Wellness Clinic will help
Vermont CARES link people to additional
testing as needed.
The walk-in clinic hours will be held every
Monday from 1-3 p.m. at Peoples Health &
Wellness Clinic, located at 553 N. Main St.,
Barre.
Vermont CARES will be sharing more
information about its program and answering
questions from the community at the City
Council meeting in Barre on January 10.

Washington County Mental Health Services


Receives $7000 Building Communities Grant

living, or on to other permanent placements.


They benefit from 1-on-1 daily therapeutic
support across settings of home, school, and
community. Research shows that aesthetics
can significantly impact ones mental health
and wellbeing and that youth who have experienced traumatic events in their lives need
spaces that are easily accessible, safe, and
calming. Thus, this grant funding was used to
fix up the home which has led to a greater
sense of pride and responsibility for the
young men living there. Two of the residents
were also able to take part in the award ceremony held with Governor Shumlin on
December 13, and this was a great experience
for all involved.
The Skyline Program and Washington
County Mental Health Services (WCMHS)
would like to extend a big thank you to the
Building and General Services Division for
choosing to support this project. It will make
a real and lasting difference for the young
men in the program and all the staff who are
dedicated to supporting them.

The Skyline residential program at


Washington County Mental Health Services
(WCMHS) was awarded a matching grant of
$7000 recently to do much needed repair
work to the home that houses this program.
The Building Communities Grant is offered
through the Department of Buildings and
General services at the state of Vermont. The
human services grant component of the program provides awards of matching grants to
municipalities and nonprofit organizations for
capital costs associated with the major maintenance, renovation, and development of
facilities used for the delivery of human services and health care or educational opportunities in Vermont communities.
Skyline is a Residential Treatment Program
at WCMHS and has been based in Barre since
2001. Skyline provides services for up to four
youth, ages 14-19, who are continuing their
treatment in a community based mental health
program. Youth in the Skyline Program have

Be Careful when Downloading Apps


During the Holidays

This December, scammers are fooling holiday shoppers with a new high tech con.
Phony retail apps are popping up in Apple and
Androids app stores and stealing shoppers
personal information.
How the Scam Works:
You search in your smartphones app store
for a favorite retailer. Many brands provide
apps to make shopping at that store easy and
more convenient. Several apps appear, and
they all have similar names and brand logo.
Be careful when downloading the new app.
Most fake apps are fairly harmless, a way to
deliver spammy advertising. But some apps
require shoppers to enter credit card information or provide their Facebook password.
Sharing this information can open users up to
fraud.
This con is notable because it affects so
many brands, in both the Apple and Android
app stores. Look out for fake apps posing as
mall staples, such as Dillards and
Footlocker, online retailers such as Zappos
and Overstock, and luxury sellers such as
Jimmy Choo. Scammers have snuck these
counterfeit apps past Apples App Store
review process, so be careful no matter

what type of device you use.


Tips to Protect Yourself From an App
Scam
Scammers love to impersonate popular
apps. Heres how to spot a con:
Evaluate before downloading. In the app
store, look for warning signs such as apps
with no reviews and no history of previous
versions.
Look out for poor grammar. Most fake
apps are developed with little or no quality
control. Look for poor grammar, typos, and
strange sentences or phrases within the app
title, description, or instructions.
Make sure the retailor has an app. Not all
retailors have apps, which makes it easier for
scammers to pass off fake ones. When in
doubt, do a quick search online before downloading.
For More Information:
Check out New York Times coverage of
fake retail apps on their website. To report
issues with apps, go here for Google Play and
here for Apples App Store.
To report a scam, go to BBB Scam Tracker
(bbb.org/scamtracker).

Possible Phone Scam Targeting Vermonters

The Department of Financial Regulation


has been notified that a number of Vermonters
have received questionable phone calls from
people claiming affiliation with Blue Cross
and Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT). The
caller offers a special program regarding pain
management and opioid prescriptions and
asks the consumer to disclose personal information to determine qualification for the
program.
It has been reported that in some cases, the
caller ID has displayed the name Margarita
Man. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont
is not affiliated with any such pain manage-

ment or opioid drug program and did not


authorize these calls.
DFR reminds people to never give out personal information unless you are absolutely
certain you are speaking to a trusted source. If
you are unsure in any way, call your insurance company directly using the number
provided on your insurance card.
If you think youve received a suspicious
call, report it to the Attorney Generals
Consumer Assistance Program at 802-6563183. For more information, call BCBSVT at
802-247-2583 or DFRs Insurance Division at

Melvin J. Knoerl

Melvin Joseph Knoerl was


born in Buffalo, New York on
March 1, 1923. He was born to Lawrence
and Theresa Knoerl, who owned Knoerls
Grocery in the Lovejoy neighborhood of
Buffalo.
Mel loved his family! He grew up with
four siblings: George, twins Geraldine
and Evelyn, and Rita. Mel was a graduate
of St. Josephs Collegiate Institute in
Buffalo. He then served in the Seabees in the South Pacific
from 1943-1945.
Soon after his discharge, he married Jane Frances Pernick,
also of Buffalo. They had three daughters: Shirley Cane and
her husband, Daniel; Cathleen Theobald and her husband,
Dennis; and Patricia Johnson Knoerl and her husband, Dennis
Kane. Jane and Mel enjoyed 5 grandchildren and 4 greatgrandchildren that followed. Mel and Jane had their own successful commercial refrigeration repair business for 20 years.
Mel then joined Store Fixture Services and ended his career
working for TOPS Markets.
After Janes death in 1997, Mel moved to Vermont where
he met Hilda Webster. After a whirlwind courtship, they were
married and settled in their home on Crescent Lane in
Montpelier. Hilda has four children: Stephen, Bryant, Debbie
(Foley) and Jimmy. They, along with their spouses, children
and grandchildren enriched his life immeasurably. He loved
them all dearly.
Mel had so many interests that he combined with an artistic
eye for impressive results. Mel did beautiful stained glass
lamps and windows, oil painting, woodworking, building
blanket chests, decoys, whirl-a-gigs, doll houses, SEVEN
grandfather clocks, and even long-handled shoe horns. Later
in life Mel took great pleasure in making and gifting his
lights in a bottle his last simple, but beautiful craft that he
took great joy in sharing.
Mel lived the last year and a half at Mayo Rehab and
Continuing Care in Northfield. The amazing staff became a
new family for him, where they took care of each other, bringing Mel comfort and support in the last part of his journey.
Mel had a contagious zest and love of life. He had an amazing smile that lit up any room. He was loved by all who had
the pleasure to know him.
Ever the giver, Mels final giving gesture was to donate his
body to UVM Medical School.
A celebration of Mels life was held at Guare & Sons
Funeral Home, 30 School Street, Montpelier on Thursday,
December 22 at 4:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be sent to
Mayo Healthcare, Walking Path Fund, 71 Richardson St.,
Northfield, VT 05663.

Have Faith in America!

Fellow Citizens,
We, the citizens of the United States of America, are all
one equal members of this great Republic. The welfare of
the weakest and the welfare of the most powerful are
inseparably bound together. Industry cannot flourish if labor
languishes. Transportation cannot prosper if manufacturing
declines. The general welfare of our nation cannot be
provided for by any single act or law; it is well to remember
that the benefit of one is the benefit of all and the neglect of
one is the neglect of all. The suspension of one persons
dividends results in the suspension of another persons pay.
Men do not make laws. They do but discover them. Laws
must be justified by something more than the will of the
majority. They must rest on the eternal foundation of
righteousness. That nation is most fortunate in its form of
government which has proficient instruments for the
discovery of laws. The latest, most modern, and nearest
perfect system that civilization has devised is the
representative democracy. Its weakness is the weakness of
us imperfect human beings who administer it. Its strength is
that even such administration secures to the people more
blessings than any other system ever conceived.
No nation has discarded its representative governance and
retained its citizens liberty. Representative government
must be preserved. Courts are established, not to determine
the popularity of a cause, but to adjudicate and enforce
rights. No litigant should be required to submit his case to
the hazard and expense of a political campaign. No judge
should be required to seek or receive political rewards. The
courts of this land are known and honored wherever people
love justice. Let their glory suffer no diminution at our
hands. The electorate and judiciary cannot combine.
A hearing means a hearing. When the trial of causes goes
outside the court room, constitutional government ends. The
people cannot look to legislation generally for success.
Industry, thrift or character are not conferred by any act or
resolution.
Government cannot relieve its citizens from toil. It can
provide no substitute for the rewards of hard work. It can, of
course, care for the incapable and recognize distinguished
merit. The able-bodied must care for themselves. Selfgovernment means self-support. Each of us is born into the
universe with a personality that is uniquely our own. Each of
us has a right that is founded upon the natural law to have
property that is our own. Ultimately, property rights and
personal rights are the same thing. The one cannot be
preserved if the other be violated. Each of us is entitled to
the rights and rewards of our labors which are never too
large or never too small to be protected.
History reveals no civilized people among whom there
were not a highly-educated class and large accumulations of
wealth, represented usually by the clergy and nobility.
Inspiration has always come from above. Diffusion of
learning has come down from the university to the common
school and then to the kindergarten. No one would expect to

aid the common school by abolishing higher education. It


may be that the diffusion of wealth works in a similar
fashion. As the little red schoolhouse is built upon the
college, so it is that the fostering and protection of large
accumulations of wealth are the foundation on which to
build the prosperity of the whole people. Larger profits mean
larger payrolls. But profits must be the result of labor
performed. In no land are there so many and such large
accumulations of wealth as in our land; in no land do they
perform more good for all; in no land will the work of a day
bring a larger reward in material and spiritual satisfaction.
Have faith in America. In some unimportant detail some
other nations may surpass her, but in the general results,
there is no place on earth where the people secure, in a larger
measure, the blessings of organized government and nowhere
can those functions more properly be termed self-government.
Do the days work. If it be to protect the rights of the weak,
whoever objects, do it. If it be to help a powerful corporation
better to serve the people, whatever the opposition, do that.
Expect to be called a stand patter, but dont be a stand patter.
Expect to be called a demagogue, but dont be a demagogue.
Dont hesitate to be as revolutionary as science. Dont
hesitate to be as reactionary as the multiplication table.
Dont expect to build up the weak by pulling down the
strong. Dont hurry to regulate or legislate. Give
administration a chance to catch up with legislation. We
need a broader, firmer, deeper faith in the people. A faith that
each of us desire to do right, that the nation is founded upon
a righteousness which will endure; a reconstructed faith that
the final approval of the people is given not to demagogues,
slavishly pandering to their selfishness, merchandising with
the clamor of the hour, but to wise leaders, ministering to
their welfare, representing their deep, silent, abiding
convictions
Statutes must appeal to more than material welfare.
Wages wont satisfy, as they never will be large enough. Nor
houses, nor lands, nor stock dividends though they fall thick
as the leaves in the autumn wind.
Man has a spiritual nature. Touch it, and it must respond
just as the needle of a compass responds to the magnet. To
that, not to selfishness, let the laws of the nation appeal.
Recognize the immortal worth and dignity of man. Let our
laws proclaim to the humblest citizen, performing the most
menial task, the recognition of their equality, the recognition
that we all are peers, the humblest with the most exalted, and
the recognition that all work is to be glorified. Such is the path
to equality before the law. Such is the foundation of liberty
under the law. Such is the sublime revelation of the relationship
of one citizen to another in our great republic...Democracy!

Ice Skating Rink Coming to Montpelier this Winter

Lace up your skates. This winter, youll be able to practice


your figure eights on an ice rink on the State House lawn in
downtown Montpelier. Last week, the Vermont Department of
Buildings and General Services (BGS) executed an agreement
with the City of Montpelier allowing for the installation of a
temporary skating rink in front of the states Capitol building.
The agreement paves the way for a 40x80 rink to be installed
there between Christmas and New Years.
The idea for putting an ice rink on the State House lawn
was the brainchild of a small group of central Vermont residents, who formed the Put a Rink on It committee in an
effort to coax the idea into reality. With support from
Montpelier Alive, National Life, Vermont Mutual, and others,
and with the backing of Montpeliers City Council, the committee and city staff worked with BGS for over a year to gain
approval for the project.
The City of Montpelier plans to officially open the rink for
skating the first day of the Vermont legislative session,
Wednesday, January 4. The rink will be open Wednesdays
through Fridays from 3-7 p.m. and on the weekends from
noon until 7 p.m. through the winter season pending ice that
is safe for skating. The rink will be free and open to the public
during these monitored skating hours. To ensure the rink is

safe for all skaters, hockey will not be allowed at the rink.
This rink is a great example of volunteerism at work in our
community. It would never have happened without the hard
work of Nate Hausman and Kimberley McKee. Im very
pleased with the successful partnership between Montpelier
Alive, the State of Vermont, and the City of Montpelier that
also brought this project to fruition. I look forward to skating
with Montpelier residents and visitors this winter, said
Montpelier Mayor Hollar.
Ashley Witzenberger, the Executive Director of Montpelier
Alive, a nonprofit which promotes the vitality of the capital
city, added, Were very excited to see the rink installed. We
think itll add to the vibrancy of downtown Montpelier and
will be a boon to both residents and the downtown business
community.
Montpelier resident and member of the Put a Rink on It
committee Nate Hausman said, The Lawn of the State House
has always struck me as a perfect place for a rink. Just like it
comes alive with people picnicking and playing frisbee in the
summer, Im excited to see it become a hub of activity during
the winter months. I hope the rink will draw young and old
alike who want to skate under the under the gleam of the
golden dome.

and mission statement and to elect a new board. The new RW


Board includes three members continuing from its old board,
two members of the former WTC Board and two new community members. Jeffrey Larkin will be the new President of
the RW Board of Directors for 2017.
Revitalizing Waterburys new mission statement reads, to
preserve, promote and enhance the economic, historic and
social vitality of Waterbury, Vermont for residents, businesses
and visitors alike. To combine the goals of the Tourism
Council into RW, two words were added to the mission statement, promote and visitors and one word was removed,
downtown.
Its been a year of planning for this vote, said Karen
Nevin, Executive Director at Revitalizing Waterbury. RW
continues to be committed to all of its work on behalf of
Waterbury. However, Im excited to start seeing the benefits
of the two organizations truly working as one.
Revitalizing Waterbury will be calling on its members and
the community to participate in a strategic planning process in
2017 that will help define its activities and plan for the
future.

Special Olympics Vermont Names Norwich University


2016 Organization of the Year

Norwich University has been named Organization of the


Year by Special Olympics Vermont. The university was recognized at an annual awards luncheon held on Sunday, Dec.
11, at the Killington Resort.
Norwich University has been an important partner of
Special Olympics Vermont for many years, hosting two
annual sports events and providing volunteer support at
numerous other events including the well-known Penguin
Plunge, said Lisa DeNatale, President and CEO of Special
Olympics Vermont. The support that faculty, staff and students at Norwich University provide advances our mission by
enhancing the lives of Special Olympics athletes all across the
state.
Norwich University has been partnering with Special
Olympics Vermont since the university began facilitating a
soccer event at nearby U-32 Middle and High School in 1986,
until the event moved to Norwich in 1989, where it has continued. Norwich has hosted Special Olympics Vermonts
Annual Basketball Tournament for 15 years, and the Young
Athletes Program over the past 10 years. This year, Norwichs
partnership with the athletes grew to include hosting the
Unified Schools Soccer Tournament and the inaugural Fall
Games. Between those events and the annual Penguin Plunge,
approximately 100-200 Norwich students work with Special
Olympics Vermont athletes and programs annually.

Waterbury Tourism Council Disbands; Revitalizing Waterbury Expands

On December 6, 2016, the Waterbury Tourism Council and


Revitalizing Waterbury held simultaneous membership meetings in the Steele Community Room to make decisions on
their future.
At the meeting, members of the Waterbury Tourism
Council unanimously voted to dissolve WTC and assign its
assets to Revitalizing Waterbury. RW and the Tourism Council
spent most of 2016 in conversations strategizing how to
eliminate duplication and combine marketing activities under
a single organization. The two entities have had separate roles
in the community, but there was significant overlap in their
efforts for promoting Waterbury.
I believe its important for people to work together and
share resources whenever possible, said Kim Dixon, owner
of Insights Marketing and former President of the Waterbury
Tourism Council. The merger of Revitalizing Waterbury and
the Waterbury Tourism Council takes that idea to a new level.
It creates one, unified voice for the business community in
Waterbury, which will have a powerful and positive impact on
the work we are able to do moving into the future.
In the second portion of the meeting, Revitalizing Waterbury
members unanimously voted to accept changes to the By-Laws

Yes! WE DOoo
Diagnostic Work!

Engagement oversees a student-run organization dedicated to


partnering with Special Olympics Vermont called Unify,
which meets weekly with local athletes and allies to train and
build skills around various sports and general physical fitness
and wellness.
It has been an honor and a privilege to work with the
administrators, volunteers, and athletes at the Vermont Special
Olympics, Norwich Professor of Physical Education Thomas
Roberge said. Our partnership with the Vermont Special
Olympics has been tremendous for our campus, students, and
student-athletes and has benefitted each in many ways.
Special Olympics Vermont recognizes outstanding athletes,
volunteers, and partners at its annual awards banquet. An
Organization of the Year has been recognized by Special
Olympics Vermont since 2004. Past recipients include
Waitsfield Telecom, Dealer.com, and various Rotary clubs
and civic groups around the state.
Special Olympics Vermont is part of a global movement
that works year round to foster acceptance and inclusion of
people with intellectual disabilities by using the power of
sport to showcase their gifts and abilities. In 2016, 1,126 athletes and Unified partners competed with Special Olympics
Vermont in 12 Olympic-type sports. Training and competition
opportunities are available in all 14 counties and 64 Unified
Champion Schools in Vermont.

IRS, Partners Urge Taxpayers to Beware of


IRS Impersonations and Tax Scams

f you get a call from the IRS


threatening you with lawsuits or
jail unless you pay up immediatelyGuess what? Its a scam.
IRS impersonation and tax scams
by phone, email, postal mail and text are ongoing. Criminals
use more and more creative ploys to trick taxpayers and tax
preparers. Dont be a victim.
The IRS, state tax agencies and the private-sector tax industry are asking for your help in the effort to combat identity
theft and fraudulent returns. Working in partnership with you,
we can make a difference.
Thats why for the second year in a row, we launched a
public awareness campaign that we call Taxes. Security.
Together. And, weve launched a series of security awareness
tips that can help protect you from cybercriminals.
The IRS doesnt initiate contact with taxpayers by email,
text message or social media channels to request personal or
financial information. This includes requests for PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards,
banks or other financial accounts.
Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will
not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a
scam.
The IRS will never:
Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call
about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes,

such as a prepaid debit card.


Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement
groups to have you arrested for not paying.
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the
IRS and asking for money, heres what you should do:
If you dont owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you
do:
Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their IRS Impersonation
Scam Reporting web page. You can also call 800-366-4484.
Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the FTC
Complaint Assistant on FTC.gov. Please add IRS Telephone
Scam in the notes.
If you know you owe, or think you may owe tax:
Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you.
Stay alert to scams that use the IRS as a lure. Tax scams can
happen any time of year, not just at tax time.

Rogue One

Picture it: You just nished a feast at a Chinese buffet.


You had six plates of food. Five was clearly the best,
but the whole meal was wonderful. As the check is coming, you remember how tasty the beef with broccoli was
and you foolishly eat one more heaping plate. Now you
feel terrible. That last plate was a big mistake.
That nal plate of beef with broccoli is Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The Force Awakens (2015) is a sentimental, uninspired artistic failure. It was as if JJ Abrams was doing a
Star War touchdown dance, without acknowledging that it
was George Lucas who scored the touchdown.
In 2012, The Disney Corporation bought the rights to
Star Wars for $4 billion. So there is no doubt that we will
be watching new Star Wars movies for the rest of our
lives. The question was whether theyd ever make real
lms or just an endless string of two hour commercials
for BB8 merchandise.
Rogue One answers that question.
Rogue One is not brilliant and its not perfect. But
its a serious lm for adults by adults. And thats good
enough.
[Spoiler Alert] The story takes place in the time between the transformation of Anakin Skywalker into Darth
Vader in Episode III and the introduction of Luke Skywalker in Episode IV.
The newly formed Imperial Empire is trying to solidify

its hegemony in the galaxy. And theyve found a perfect way


of doing it: the planet-killing Death Star battle station.
The Death Star will be able to wipe out uncooperative planets and annihilate the rebellion. Fortunately, Galen Erso - the
scientist who designed the Death Star - secretly sabotaged the
space station by leaving it vulnerable to attack from a single
shot inside its core.
You know that already. But now we learn about the brave
band of soldiers who stole the plans for the rebellion led by
the scientists daughter Jyn Erso.
At its heart, Rogue One is a gritty, WWII-style action
lm. There are no cutesy droids or silly animated creatures.
Theres a lot of battle sequences and a lot of death. This is the
rst Star Wars movie that is absolutely not made for children.
I liked it a lot.
The Force Awakens was a sickening bowl of beef with
broccoli that we werent hungry for. Rogue One is the solid, wholesome meal that you eat for lunch the next day that
makes you feel healthy again.

Reisss Pieces
By Judy Reiss

hristmas is over but not the


holiday season! Relax, I am not
suggesting that you or anyone
else should still give presents. I know
that the gift giving is fun and expensive but it does help make Santas visit
more exciting and more fun. So how can we have a holiday
season without cards and presents? Let me tell you.
This week from Christmas to New Years is a time that can
be just as wonderful. It is time for children to play with the
toys that they received during the Christmas season, which is
only a part of the holiday season. But it is important for you to
encourage the children to play with their new toys and when
possible, take a good look at their old toys. Are there any they
no longer play with? Sure I bet there are. Tell the children to
make two piles of those toys. One for toys that they cant live
without and one that should be huge with toys that they no
longer play with or love. Now
have to sit down when they
are finished and have a family discussion about what to
do with the second pile. Yes,
let the kids decide or at least
help decide where and when
they give a needy child or a
grouped of children the bag
of toys. Remember and make
sure your children also know
that although they no longer love these toys, there are
children who will be thrilled
to receive them and will love
them just like your child did.
Now that is celebrating the holiday season and believe me,
everyone involved will have the holiday spirit.
Now how about the adults during this week. For most of us
think about how weird this Christmas is. We go from Santa
Claus and wired children and lots of family, especially the elderly who are not just invited to participate in this wonderful
day but included in the preparation of old family recipes that
everyone anticipates all year long. And if you have a caring
host he or she will always to ask Grandma to make her special
Plum Pudding or chocolate cake because she already knows
that she is no longer the head of the family, but is now a respected old member who should not be worried about baking
for the family. But that is wrong, she knows that her role is to
make her famous desserts and she will be shocked and hurt if
she is no longer asked.
OK now you have used a couple of those blah days and it
really does feel like the holiday is still with you. Of course,

now you have to think about New Years Eve! Now I dont really understand why New Years Eve is always anticipated as
the one evening it is appropriate to get blind drunk! And how
many people die on our roads or even worse kill someone else.
And it is accepted as just collateral damage. Needless to say I
am not talking about the family and friends who have to suffer
from such statistics.
So now it is New Years Eve and there are many ways that
it is celebrated in this country. Number one is the super duper
party given by adults to adults. Unfortunately this party appears to have no regulations. And I guess that because it is for
adults, there are no rules. Be sure you do remember the adult
rule though, No Children Allowed.
Number two is a party just for children. It is my opinion
that this party should be for children about 10 and older. A
little childrens party is too hard to have unless you do it in
the afternoon. An adult should be present all the time. But
dont think it would be fun
for them to have games. Trust
me, games are a no no. I
would assume that the only
time to have a teenage party
is when at least 14 adults are
present. Not striking the party
but make sure that there is no
drinking or drugs because you
must know that someone will
bring it, they consider it almost obligatory! But stay out
of the actual party or it will
die right in front of you. Your
children, if age appropriate,
should help plan the food and
the music. And if you dont check on them too often, it will be
a blast. (That is a good thing).
Are the holidays really over now? It used to be just like
Christmas decorations used to go up about the 15th of December! But I have to admit that this next holiday takes quite
a while and there is lots of free time before the actual day but
also a very anticipated the beginning of spring and of course
Easter. Now Easter much like Christmas has transformed
from a religious holiday to one that many people celebrate
with an adorable Easter Bunny! And the Easter Bunny comes
and leaves nests of candy around the lawn or the house and
all sorts of candy, especially jelly beans, keeping the children
and many adults busy finding the nest and eating candy until
they are finally satiated! And many Christians go to church
and then celebrate Jesus Christs life by snacking on Chocolate bunnies and Peeps.

Remember and make sure your


children also know that although
they no longer love these toys, there
are children who will be thrilled to
receive them and will love them
just like your child did. Now that is
celebrating the holiday season and
believe me, everyone involved will
have the holiday spirit.

Secretary of Administration Trey Martin to Rejoin


Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC

Vermont Secretary of Administration


Trey Martin will return to the private
practice of law at the northern New
England law firm Downs Rachlin
Martin PLLC after Gov. Peter Shumlin
leaves office on Jan. 5. Martin will
practice principally in the areas of land
use, energy and environmental law and
government affairs. He will start his
new job on Jan. 9 and work in the
firms Montpelier office.
Trey has been an invaluable asset to my team, Shumlin
said. A few months ago he stepped into one of the toughest
jobs in state government and did not miss a beat. Hes a true
professional and his service to Vermont has made this state a
better place. Im pleased he will remain engaged on the
important issues that I know he is passionate about and that he
has worked so hard to advance these past years.
From our vantage point, Trey served the governor and his
team well, and that experience will make him a better lawyer
and advisor to our business clients, said DRM Managing
Partner and Chief Executive Officer Paul H. Ode, Jr. We are
pleased to welcome him back to the firm.
Martin was an associate at DRM beginning in 2008, then
joined the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources as senior
counsel in 2012. He was named deputy secretary of the
agency in 2014. This October he was named secretary of the
Agency of Administration.
In state government, Martin worked on both legal and
policy matters. Most recently, he has overseen development

rewarding, Martin said. I enjoyed great working relationships with my colleagues, learned deeply about Vermonts
regulatory processes and participated in some of the most
important policy debates that face our state. I am truly grateful
for my experience these last four years, and I am looking
forward to returning to practice in the private sector with a
deeper understanding of state government.

WINTER WEDDINGS | SPECIAL OCCASSIONS

How to build your wedding budget


ouples engaged to be married have a lot on their
plates as they begin planning their weddings.
Whereas tradition once demanded parents of
the bride pay for a couples wedding, nowadays
more and more engaged couples are completely
or partially nancing their own nuptials. That means
prospective brides and grooms must develop wedding
budgets that wont ensure their rst act as Mr. and Mrs. is
paying down debt.
In its 2015 Real Weddings Study, online bridal
resource The Knot found that many couples still
receive substantial nancial support from their
parents to pay for their weddings. The survey
found that, on average, the brides parents
contributed 44 percent of the overall wedding
budget in 2015, while couples nanced 43 percent
(the remaining 13 percent was nanced by the
grooms parents and additional sources). Couples
who hope to follow that formula or pay for their
weddings on their own can heed the following
tips to build wedding budgets that wont break
the bank but will still ensure a day to remember
forever.
Examine your collective nances. Few couples
know the details of each others nances before
getting engaged. While some may still hesitate to
share their personal nancial information upon
getting engaged, an open and honest discussion
and examination of each persons nances is the
only way to develop a realistic wedding budget
that both partners can live with. Once couples
know what they can contribute, they can then
consult their parents to determine if their mothers
and fathers are intending to contribute.
Develop a preliminary guest list. A preliminary
guest list can give couples an idea of how large
and expensive their weddings will be. According
to the Real Weddings Study, the average cost per
wedding guest in 2015 was $237. While that cost
can vary greatly depending on geography and
other factors, couples should keep that gure in
mind when drafting their guest lists. If need be,
keep costs down by trimming the guest list so it

includes only close family members and friends.

Dont count on gifts. Many couples justify


runaway wedding budgets by telling themselves
that they will ultimately get the money back
via wedding gifts. While many guests will give
nancial gifts, counting on such windfalls is a
recipe for accruing debt. Do not build potential
wedding gifts into your wedding budget. If you
do so and your expectations fall short, you could
be facing considerable debt upon returning home
from your honeymoon.

Gather quotes before choosing where to tie the


knot. Where couples get married will have a great
impact on how much money they will spend on
their weddings. For example, the Real Weddings
Study found that, in 2015, the average wedding
in Manhattan cost couples slightly more than
$82,000, while the average Alaskan wedding cost
just over $17,000. Venues within the same city can
vary greatly with regard to pricing and offerings
as well, so couples should give themselves ample
time to gather quotes and nd an affordable venue
they like.
Build extra costs into your budget. When
determining a budget you can live with,
remember to include a little extra for unforeseen
costs. Weddings are large undertakings, and its
reasonable to expect some unforeseen costs to
arise. Building such costs into your initial budget
will make these unforeseen circumstances that
much easier to handle.

Budgets can help couples stay on track and avoid


debt as they plan their weddings.

appy Holidays Everyone! As we close


out 2016, please take a few moments
to remind yourself that you are a wonderful, caring person who deserves the best of
everything. Sometimes in our busy day to day
lives, we forget to take care of ourselves and
this is a huge mistake! In order to care for
others in our life, first we have to care for
ourselves. Along that line, I recently had a
conversation with someone who is caring for
a family member with dementia. Her thoughts
and insights reflect some of what caregivers
experience while fulfilling this challenging
role.
Thoughts and Insights on caring for a
loved one with Alzheimers disease/
Dementia
In our attempt to care for loved ones, as
best we can, we have to consider that we no
longer live in a society (at least in the US)
where family members automatically assume
the responsibility for caring for a failing elder.
By and large, most folks are ready to move on
from the burdens and worries of raising children at the time our parents are dealing with
failing health. In addition, when someone has
a physical illness, the treatments are more
answers on how to treat them. With dementia
or Alzheimers, each person is different and
the treatments and answers are not always as
clear which leads to a fair amount of fear.
That being said, I think its fair to say its
quite common and understandable to feel
somewhat resentful and angry about assuming responsibility for caring for the very
people who raised us.
When a family member becomes the caregiver, they inevitably give up their own independent lifestyle to care for their loved one.
We have the greatest intentions to begin with,
however, over time and as the illness progresses, especially dementia related illnesses,
the caregivers patience and understanding
grows thin. Add to that any family dynamics
where one might be at odds with other family
members not helping out, and its easy to lose
respect for the very person we originally
wanted to care for. Some behaviors brought

on by dementia related illnesses may lead us


to wanting to reprimand our loved one as we
would a child, when they no longer have the
ability to even understand the behavior was
unacceptable.
It is very important to reach out for support. We are all human and products of the
society we grew up in. Knowing how to care
for someone whose health is failing, especially if the disease is a form of dementia/
Alzheimers, doesnt necessarily come naturally. In addition, we are all deserving of
having time to care for our own needs, which
can be nearly impossible when all our energy
is devoted to caring for someone else. There
are wonderful, qualified people in our community who are ready and willing to help us
understand the behaviors around dementia /
Alzheimers diseases. We just need to be
brave enough to reach out for help. If we are
willing to learn about our loved ones illness
and what to expect as it progresses, it can be
easier and less stressful to make healthy decisions regarding the care and quality of life for
our loved ones and ourselves.
In wrapping up this article, if youre a caregiver, reach out and get the support you
deserve! Contact your primary care physician, the Alzheimers Association - VT
Chapter,
your
clergyman,
Project
Independence, Central VT Home Health &
Hospice or Central VT Council on Aging.

According to Captive Review magazine,
the Hall of Fame will recognize the most
influential individuals the captive industry
has produced. Its editor, Richard Cutcher
said the magazine wants to recognize people
who have shaped and driven the captive
journey over the past half-century.
Governor Peter Shumlin commented on the
strength of the Vermont captive market.
This is great news and a well-deserved
honor, Shumlin said, The truth is, Vermont
has one of the strongest captive insurance
markets because of the hard work of people
like Dave. This is great recognition of all
Dave has done to make Vermonts captive
program one of the strongest in America.
Governor-elect Phil Scott agreed.
I want to congratulate Deputy
Commissioner Provost on this honor. The fact
that he and two former Vermont state employees received this honor is a testament to the
good work the Department of Financial
Regulation does in the captive insurance
industry. His Division has overseen a predictable and thoughtful regulatory system that
supports businesses and consumers, Scott
said. This is an example of how government
can work with the private sector to improve
Vermonts economy, and I look forward to
working with Dave and the entire department.
Michael S. Pieciak, DFR commissioner,
praised Provost as an invaluable asset to
Vermont and the captive insurance industry
globally.
Dave is a terrific leader both at DFR and
internationally within the captive insurance
industry. His unique blend of expertise,
approachably and humor helps keep Vermont
at the forefront of the captive world and
Vermont is very lucky to have him, he said.
Provost said he is humbled by the nomination.
Im humbled and honored to be named to
the same list as the man who invented captive
insurance, and three captive stalwarts who
hired and mentored me, he said. Its a team
effort that makes Vermont a special place, and
this honor is a reflection on all of the great

The WORLD

December 28, 2016

Edward Meehan
Meehan served as Vermonts first captive
insurance director in the 1980s. Captive
Review called him one of the early pioneers
and architects of onshore captive insurance in
the United States.
The magazine also said he is widely
regarded as the man to kick-start Vermonts
captive insurance journey and set it on the
road to the Gold Standard status it holds
today. Meehan died in 2014.
Leonard Crouse
Crouse shepherded the departments captive insurance division through what Captive
Review called Vermonts crucial growth
period. More than 600 captive insurance
companies were licensed during his tenure
from the 1990s to 2008, a time that firmly
established Vermont as the leading captive
domicile.
David Provost
Provost joined the department in 2001 and
took the reins from Crouse in 2008. He has
been named the most influential person in the
captive insurance world four times by Captive
Review magazine and in 2013 guided the
signing of Vermonts 1,000 captive. During
his tenure, Vermont has added 256 captive
insurance companies to its impressive list that
now numbers 1,086. Provost received the
2000 Vermont Captive Insurance Association
Captive Crusader Award and has ranked in
the top three on Captive Reviews Power
50 list in the past four years, topping the list
in 2015 and 2013.

VT F&W Offers Ice Safety Tips

THE TEA HOUSE EXCHANGE EXTENTION

people in the Vermont captive insurance


industry, past and present, who have contributed to our Gold Standard reputation.
Captive insurance is a regulated form of
self-insurance created by companies or groups
of companies as an alternative to traditional
insurance and is designed to better manage
their own risk. Vermonts captive insurance
industry employs more than 1,400 people in
full- and part-time positions and is the largest
captive insurance domicile in the U.S. and the
third largest in the world.
Vermont was named U.S. Domicile of the
Year for captive insurance four of the last
five years, and in November earned the distinction of top Non-European Union Captive
Domicile of the Year from the European
Captive Forum.

The recent arrival of cold temperature has


formed early-season ice on Vermont ponds,
lakes and rivers. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife
Department reminds winter enthusiasts that
ice should never be considered safe and ice
conditions vary.
We are urging all outdoor enthusiasts
people going ice fishing, cross-country skiers,
hikers, and snowmobilers to be extremely
cautious and prepared if they are going to
venture out on any ice, said Vermont Fish &
Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter. Ice
conditions can vary dramatically on different
parts of a lake. Remember, even though it
may look thick enough on the surface, moving water from currents, rivers and springs
can cause ice to form unevenly.
Once we have sustained cold weather to
form good ice, activities such as ice fishing
can be safe and a lot of fun, said Porter, but
when we go onto the ice, we need to use good
judgment and observe several safety precautions.
Leave your car or truck on shore. Every
year several motor vehicles go through the ice
on Vermont lakes, and some people have
drowned as a result.
Leave information about your plans with
someone where you intend to fish and when
you expect to return.
Wear a personal flotation device and dont
fish alone.
Fish with a friend. Ice fishing is a great
sport to share with family members and

friends, and having a partner with you increases both the fun and the safety.
Ice varies in thickness and condition.
Always carry an ice spud or chisel to check
ice as you proceed.
Be extremely cautious crossing ice near
river mouths, points of land, bridges, islands,
and over reefs and springs. Current almost
always causes ice to be thinner over these
areas.
Avoid going onto the ice if it has melted
away from the shore. This indicates melting is
underway, and ice can shift position as wind
direction changes.
Waves from open water can quickly break
up large areas of ice. If you can see open
water in the lake and the wind picks up, get
off!
Bring your fully-charged cell phone with
you.
Carry a set of hand spikes to help you
work your way out onto the surface of the ice
if you go through. Holding one in each hand,
you can alternately punch them into the ice
and pull yourself up and out. You can make
these at home, using large nails, or you can
purchase them at stores that sell fishing supplies.
Carry a safety line that can be thrown to
someone who has gone through the ice.
Heated fishing shanties must have good
ventilation to prevent deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. Open a window or the door
part way to allow in fresh air.

HEALTH & WELLNESS | NEW YEAR - NEW YOU

The Importance of Annual


Health Exams

nnual health exams are a key component of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A person
may not see the need to visit the doctor if he or she is feeling well, but not every
disease or condition manifests itself in a way that men and women can detect.
According the Unity Point Clinic, nearly one-third of the 133 million Americans
living with a chronic disease are unaware of the presence of their conditions. Routine
physical exams can detect serious illnesses before they do much damage. No two physical exams will
be exactly alike, but many will share some general features.
HEALTH HISTORY

A crucial element of a physical exam will include a thorough health


history if the physician doesnt already have one on le. The doctor
will take time to ask questions about family history of illness, health
habits, any vices (smoking, drinking alcohol, etc.), exercise schedule,
and diet. If there is a possible hereditary health condition running
through your family, the doctor may suggest certain testing and make
note of potential signs to look for in the future.

~ANNOUNCING~

Dr. Michael Adler is


pleased to announce
the addition of
Shannon Isaac from
the Montpelier
Dental Group to his
staff. She will be one
of the friendly front
ofce members to
greet and make your
appointment.

The ofce also offers dental hygiene.

After discussing a patients history, the doctor may ask if they are
having any problems they cannot explain. These can include changes
in eating or sleeping patterns; aches and pains; lumps or bumps
and other abnormalities. Again, the presence of symptoms may be
indicative of illness or physical changes, but not all diseases produce
obvious symptoms.

Happy New Year!

and thanks for your support

VITAL SIGNS
A doctor will check a patients vital signs during the physical. Areas
the doctor will look at include but are not limited to:
Heart rate: This measures the speed at which the heart is pumping.
Normal resting heart rate values range from 60 to 100 beats per
minute.

20

BIG SALE

Blood pressure: A blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer) will


measure systolic and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure measures
the force with which the blood is pushing through the arteries. The
diastolic blood pressure is the pressure in the arteries between beats,
when the heart rests. The systolic (top number) should be below
120, while the bottom should be less than 80, according to the Mayo
Clinic.

off
STOREWIDE
(excluding food products)

Respiration rate: The doctor will measure the number of breaths


taken in a minute. WebMD says between 12 and 16 breaths per
minute is normal for a healthy adult. Breathing more than 20 times
per minute can suggest heart or lung problems.

Pulse oximetry: Johns Hopkins School of Medicine says pulse


oximetry is a test used to measure the oxygen level (oxygen
saturation) of the blood. It is a measure of how well oxygen is being
sent to the parts of your body furthest from your heart. Normal pulse
oximeter readings usually range from 95 to 100 percent. Values
under 90 percent are considered low.

OPEN EVERY DAY 8:30-5:00 PM


(Closed New Year's Day, Jan. 1)

COMPREHENSIVE TESTING
PHYSICAL EXAM
The examination will also include physical components. The
doctor will perform a visual inspection of the skin and body for any
abnormalities, such as the presence of skin cancer. The physician
may feel the abdomen to check that internal organs are not distended.
Females physical examinations may include breast and pelvic
exams.

In addition to the exam at the ofce, the physical may include an


electrocardiogram, or EKG, to check electrical activity of the heart;
blood count and cholesterol checks through bloodwork; body mass
index testing; X-rays or MRIs and bone-density tests.

Physical exams remain an important part of staying healthy. Consult


with a doctor for more preventative maintenance tips.

Understanding Seasonal Affective Disorder


he tail end of Daylight Saving Time in 2016 occurs on November 6, when millions of
people will turn their clocks back one hour. Few people enjoy turning the clocks back
in autumn as much as they enjoy turning them forward in spring. Turning the clocks
forward affords many people, in particular working professionals who spend much of
their weekdays working indoors, a chance to enjoy some sunlight when leaving their

ofces each day. However, once the clocks are turned back, professionals typically nd themselves
leaving their ofces under a cover of darkness.
Some people easily adjust to less daylight, while others
experience a condition known as season affective disorder, or SAD.
SAD is a disorder related to changes in seasons. According to the
Mayo Clinic, the majority of people with SAD begin to experience
symptoms in the fall and continue battling those symptoms
throughout the winter. The end of Daylight Saving Time occurs in
early November, and the onset of SAD symptoms is no doubt related
to the decreased exposure to daylight many people experience
once clocks have been turned back. Those who suspect they might
be susceptible to SAD can get a better grasp of the condition so
they are capable of recognizing and responding to it should any
symptoms appear.

WHAT IS SAD?
Mental Health America, a leading community-based nonprot
dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness,
denes SAD as a mood disorder associated with depression and
related to seasonal variations of light. Though many people may be
saddened when the clocks are turned back and the sun sets earlier
than it does in the warmer months, MHA notes that a diagnosis of
SAD can only be made after the symptoms of SAD have appeared
for three consecutive winters and have gone into remission once
spring and summer have arrived.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF SAD?
Simply feeling bummed out that winter is on the horizon does

not mean a person has SAD. The following are some of the more
common symptoms of the disorder:
Depression marked by feelings of misery, guilt, hopelessness,
despair, and apathy. A loss of self-esteem may also occur.

Feelings of anxiety that include tension and an inability to tolerate


stress
Mood changes that are sometimes extreme; some SAD sufferers
experience feelings of mania in spring and summer.

Changes in sleeping habits, such as a desire to oversleep and


difculty staying awake. Some people may experience disturbed
sleep and nd themselves waking up in early morning when they are
unaccustomed to doing so.
Feelings of fatigue and an inability to adhere to ones normal
routine

WHO IS MOST LIKELY TO SUFFER FROM SAD?


The Mayo Clinic notes that SAD is diagnosed more often in women
than in men, and MHA notes that three out of four SAD sufferers
are women. Young people are more likely than older people to get
winter SAD, with MHA reporting that the main age of onset of SAD
is between 18 and 30. Symptoms of SAD may worsen among people
who have already been diagnosed with clinical depression or bipolar
disorder.

www.mentalhealthamerica.net.

On January 21, about a

Agriculture office volunteered to spend part of a
day making childrens literacy kits for Green
Mountain United Way.
These kits are designed for
children in daycare centers and preschools to enhance
their reading abilities and better prepare them for
Kindergarten and subsequent learning years. The folks
at USDA made 16 kits that day. After acquiring several
suggested age-appropriate books, each volunteer made
colorful hands-on items from craft materials relating to
the story in the books that children can hold and play
with while being read to, thus engaging them in the
reading process.

In the first boys basketball


championship matchup of the
day, the No. 1 seeded Twinfield
Trojans attempted to complete a
near perfect season. Unfortunately
for the Plainfield school, it was
far from nearly perfect against
the defending champion Proctor
Phantoms Saturday. Despite holding Proctor to 22 percent shooting from the field, Twinfields own shooting
woes and untimely turnovers for the first three quarters
allowed the Phantoms to escape with a 32-30 victory,
securing their second
straight Division IV
high school boys
basketball state title
at
the
Barre
Auditorium.
In the late championship game, offense
was not an issue for Hazen Union against four-time
defending state champion Williamstown. For one quarter, it looked like the Hardwick school would suffer the
same fate as the Blue Devils opponents in the last four
state championship matchups. However, the Wildcats
made sure the Division III state championship trophy
would be headed to Caledonia County this year by

Darren Ohl had
been working toward
this moment for the
greater part of his adult
life. He found his calling early in life and the
fruits of his labor
became evident when
he cut the ribbon outside the Vermont Bicycle Shop
Friday morning. Nearly 30 people showed up early
Friday morning to check out the new bike shop at 105
No. Main St. #100 in Barre near Goodfellows
Jewelers.
Williamstown Historical Society announced the

p.m.
On April 12, 2016, the

recruiting has been and continues to be a top priority.
The 100th birthday of

The WORLD

Ever since March 30


when The WORLD newspaper announced its firstever $1000 Grand Prize
treasure hunt in Central
Vermont, the Andy and
Danielle
McMichael
Family of Barre followed the clues each week and
practically left no stone unturned until they hit paydirt
on Wed., May 11 (Week 7). After the Week 7 clues
came out on May 10, Danielle and the kids found the
magnetized box, about the size of a cigarette pack,
stuck in a rusty upside down pail on a fence next to a
large rock with a plaque commemorating the construction of the dam/reservoir in East Barre in the
1930s by the Conservation Corps. More good fortune
came their way during the search, as they found three
geocaches and helped return one lost dog to its owner.

BBB Warns the Community of Puppy Scams this Holiday Season

Looking to add a new furry member to


your family this year? Better Business Bureau
Serving Eastern MA, ME, RI, and VT (BBB)
is warning prospective pet owners to be extra
cautious of puppy scams this holiday season.
Puppy Scams
Every year, puppy scams cost consumers
thousands of dollars for a pet that never
arrived. Puppy scammers often build websites using stolen photos and content from
reputable breeders. They promise to send a
puppy to you after money has been wired,
but will add on additional fees or disappear

completely after you have paid a certain


amount of money.
In many situations, scammers will also tell
the victims that their pet is stuck at the airport or were put on the wrong flight, resulting in a request for even more money to
deliver the pet safely. By the time the victim
realizes that no pet is coming, its often too
late. BBB urges consumers not to pay any
money in situations like these because the
puppies do not exist.
BBB offers the following tips to avoid a
puppy scam this holiday season:
Never wire money. Scammers like to use

wire transfers because it works like cash, letting them collect your money before you
realize you were scammed. If a breeder pressures you to pay by wire transfer or prepaid
debit card, its probably a scam.
Always visit the breeder. Legitimate breeders and rescue groups will offer a chance to
visit so you can check out the place and the
puppies. If the business doesnt want visitors,
then consider that a red flag.
Check the contact information. Its always
a good idea to check the address if you are
able to. If not provided, ask for the address so
that you can pick up your pet instead of hav-

ing the breeder ship him or her to you. If the


breeder doesnt give you their address and
refuses to let you pick your pet up, then walk
away.
Ask for references. Talk to others who
have purchased pets from the breeder and the
veterinarian the breeder works with.
Search for reliable breeders or rescues. If
youre looking to adopt or buy a pet, check
out BBBs Accredited Business Directory for
a list of Accredited Businesses near you to
view their BBB Business Profile and
Customer Reviews.

Q: I have a watercolor
by Pedro Cortez that I purchased at
an estate
auction a year or two ago. How much is it
www.centralvermonthumane.org
worth?
-- Ken, Providence, Rhode Island

A: I get dozens of letters and emails from readers who are


curious about artwork they have purchased. Most want to
know about values. A painting or artwork can be worth a
great deal or very little. It takes a professional to determine
which, and that is why my answer for readers is generally
the same: Hire a professional appraiser. Determining an
accurate value requires both time and expertise.
If you feel you have a work that could be valuable, it is
certainly worth paying for the services of a professional
appraiser. Case in point: A woman in Phoenix didnt want
to spend $400 to find out the value of four etchings she
wished to sell. She received $250 for the etchings, only to
learn later that they were worth about a $1,000 each. Her
refusal to spend $400 cost her about $3,750.

Q: My uncle lived in New York City during the 1940s and
had one of the first television sets, a 1946 DuMont, Model
RA 102. It is a console with a 12-inch screen. Although it
doesnt work, is it worth much in todays market?
-- Stephanie, Walla Walla, Washington.
A: I found your television set referenced in The Antique
Trader Radio and Television Price Guide, edited by Kyle
Husfloen (KP Books). According to Husfloen, your set is
worth approximately $1,200. The more expensive model,
the RA-101-1A, which featured a motorized TV screen,
radio and phonograph, is worth slightly more, about
$1,500.

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

Bear Ridge Speedway Honors 49th Season Champions

Bear Ridge Speedway honored the champions from its


49th season of dirt track stock
car racing on Saturday,
December 17. More than 300
drivers, crew members, sponsors, fans, and officials filled a
sold-out banquet hall at the
Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee,
VT for the gala, where more
than $20,000 in prizes and point
fund purses were awarded.
Adam Pierson of East
Corinth, VT headlined the
guest list as the Sabil & Sons
DIRTcar Sportsman Modified
Champion. Pierson with a hundred plus points over runner up
DJ Robinson of Sharon, VT
claimed his second year in a
row two sanctioning body
championships. Ryan Christian
of Canaan, NH came home in
third, with Kevin Chaffee of
Bradford, VT and Josh Currier
of Newport, NH rounding out
the top five.
Jason Horniac of Bradford,
VT was honored as the DIRTcar
Wells
River
Chevrolet
Sportsman Coupe champion.
Horniac not planning on running the whole season, found
himself at the top of the heap
without a victory. He beat out
runner-up Matt Ellsworth of
East Corinth, VT by 34 points.
Ellsworth held on to the runnerup position, beating out Michael
Danforth of East Corinth, VT
by six points. Brian Chaffee of
Bradford, VT and Josh
Harrington from Topsham, VT
completed the top five.
Pierson also claimed his third
USAC Dirt Midget Association
Championship in four years.

tough to beat, winning 11
straight races and tying Billy

over the holidays with their children. Since I

dont want parents to have travel nightmares,

let me provide a few trips or, rather, tips to


travel with children something closer to

make
a pleasant dream for everyone involved.

If you plan to travel by air with a baby,

breastfeeding your baby on takeoff or landing

or giving them a bottle of pumped breastmilk

or a pacifier helps relieve air pressure in their

ears, which can in turn reduce their irritability. Bringing extra

diapers for the flight is also a good idea.

If you are traveling in a rental car, make sure the rental

agency has an appropriate car safety seat for your infant, tod
dler, or younger child if you are not using your own.
1-800-877-5854

28 Jasper Mine Rd (Exit 17, I-89) Colchester, VT 05446


If you have children old enough to understand you, tell

them what your travel plans are: how long the journey will

take, time of arrival, how many stops will be made, all so the

Have a set of rules for family travel that can be reviewed
each morning so as to avoid power struggles during the day.
For example, review who sits where. Have some music or
audio books that are fun for your child to listen to, or have a
bag of small surprises like little games or puzzles that can

THANK YOU FOR SAYING


I SAW IT IN

keep them busy while on route.


If traveling by car, stop every 60-90 minutes to allow everyone to stretch their legs and
use a bathroom. Doing this along with some
light but frequent snacks may help prevent
motion sickness.
Praise your children if the trip goes well and
do something-extra special as a reward, such
as having the children choose the evenings
restaurant or go for a family swim in a motel
pool.
Remember that this is a great time to spend
some quality time with your children, so rather than view
travel as an ordeal, look at it in a positive fashion: focus on
the fun, and youll be there before you know it.
Hopefully tips like this will allow you to pack just the right
stuff and route you in the right direction the next time you
want to travel with your children.

A SEASON FOR THANKS

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 14, 2016 Heney
Realtors was happy to meet with Brooke Jenkins, Executive Director of Good Samaritan Haven.
Good Samaritan Haven is a non-prot organization involved with local community organizations,
businesses, area clergy, and stage agencies to offer shelter for homeless individuals
in Central Vermont.
We are thankful to the people at Good Samaritan Haven 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.
