â€˜Gun Â Senseâ€™ Â coalition Â aims Â to Â educate Â on Â gun Â violence MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â When Â com-Â pared Â to Â many Â states, Â Vermont Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â much Â gun Â crime. Â But Â Vermont Â is Â not Â immune Â to Â gun Â vio-Â lence. Â According Â to Â Gun Â Sense Â or-Â ganizer Â Bobbi Â Loney, Â Vermont Â has Â the Â highest Â rate Â of Â gun Â deaths Â in Â New Â England, Â with Â the Â 16th Â high-Â est Â rate Â in Â the Â country Â for Â suicide. Â Loney Â further Â pointed Â to Â a Â 2009 Â study Â that Â found Â Vermont Â exports Â more Â guns Â than Â any Â other Â state Â in Â the Â Northeast, Â ranking Â 16th Â nation-Â ally. Â Vermont Â doesnâ€™t Â require Â gun Â owners Â to Â secure Â guns Â in Â a Â gun Â safe Â or Â with Â a Â trigger Â lock, Â despite Â clear Â evidence Â that Â accidental Â deaths Â by Â children Â are Â reduced Â 23 Â percent Â with Â such Â laws. Gun Â Sense Â Vermont Â has Â launched Â a Â petition Â drive Â to Â ask Â the Â governor Â and Â Legislature Â to Â take Â up Â sensible Â gun Â legislation Â next Â term. Â There Â will Â be Â an Â organizational Â meeting Â on Â Monday, Â June Â 3, Â from Â 7-Â9 Â p.m., Â at Â Champlain Â Valley Â Unitarian Â Uni-Â versalist Â Society Â at Â 2 Â Duane Â Court, Â
Middlebury, Â for Â Addison Â County Â residents Â who Â would Â like Â to Â help Â this Â effort. Gun Â Sense Â Vermont Â is Â a Â coalition Â of Â Vermonters Â who Â support Â reason-Â able Â gun Â safety Â legislation, Â bridging Â groups Â such Â as Â the Â Vermont Â Pub-Â lic Â Health Â Association, Â Child Â Safe Â Vermont, Â and Â the Â Vermont Â Chapter Â of Â Moms Â Demand Â Action Â for Â Gun Â Sense, Â and Â including Â gun Â own-Â ers Â and Â non-Âgun Â owners, Â doctors, Â teachers, Â hunters, Â veterans, Â parents, Â civic Â and Â religious Â leaders Â from Â 100 Â towns.

Say Â thanks Â to Â people Â who Â matter When Â I Â sat Â down Â recently Â with Â soon-Âto-Âretire Â Ferrisburgh Â Central Â School Â teacher Â Alana Â Lilly, Â I Â asked Â her Â the Â standard Â question Â about Â the Â highlights Â of Â her Â 30 Â years Â at Â the Â school. Â As Â is Â always Â the Â case, Â not Â all Â of Â an Â intervieweeâ€™s Â re-Â VSRQVHPDGHWKHÂżQDOFXWIRUDVWRU\1RWHYHU\WKLQJÂżW After Â all, Â in Â 30 Â years, Â Lilly, Â like Â other Â teachers Â with Â simi-Â lar Â careers, Â had Â made Â an Â impact Â at Â her Â school. Â Â Instead, Â the Â article Â talked Â about Â her Â helping Â to Â create Â two Â annual Â events Â at Â Ferrisburgh Â Central, Â a Â producersâ€™ Â fair Â that Â highlights Â studentsâ€™ Â work Â with Â local Â farmers, Â and Â an Â â€œinvention Â conventionâ€? Â that Â encourages Â third-Âgraders Â to Â build Â devices Â to Â perform Â mechanical Â feats. Â The Â piece Â also Â noted Â Lilly Â was Â once Â named Â Ver-Â montâ€™s Â Conservation Â Teacher Â of Â the Â Year. %XWZKDWVKHÂżUVWPHQWLRQHGZKHQ I Â asked Â the Â question Â was Â a Â knock Â on Â a Â door Â during Â a Â staff Â meeting. Â It Â came Â By Andy from Â a Â student Â she Â had Â taught Â at Â least Â Kirkaldy 15 Â years Â ago, Â and Â who Â had Â come Â back Â into Â town Â and Â wanted Â to Â say Â hi Â to Â and Â thank Â the Â woman Â he Â called Â the Â best Â ÂżIWKDQGVL[WKJUDGHWHDFKHUKHHYHUKDG Iâ€™ve Â learned Â over Â the Â years Â these Â are Â the Â rewards Â teach-Â ers Â cherish. Â 1RZWDONLQJWRORQJWLPHWHDFKHUVRQWKHFXVSRIUHWLUH-Â ment Â is Â one Â of Â my Â more Â enjoyable, Â and Â if Â I Â may, Â educa-Â tional Â assignments Â each Â year. To Â start Â with, Â teachers Â are Â almost Â universally Â good Â folks. Â Like Â nursing, Â the Â people Â who Â go Â into Â the Â profes-Â sion Â tend Â to Â have Â good Â motives, Â not Â to Â mention Â brains, Â kindness Â and Â patience. Â (Full Â disclosure, Â yes, Â I Â am Â mar-Â ried Â to Â a Â Vergennes Â Union Â High Â School Â teacher, Â and Â yes, Â she Â possesses Â those Â qualities. Â She Â especially Â requires Â the Â latter Â one, Â patience, Â to Â remain Â married Â to Â me.) Like Â nurses, Â teachers Â also Â tend Â to Â be Â under-Âappreciat-Â
ed, Â so Â most Â teachers Â are Â happy Â to Â sit Â down Â with Â a Â re-Â porter. Â It Â makes Â for Â lively Â and Â informative Â chats. Iâ€™ve Â learned Â teachers Â really Â are Â fonts Â of Â patience Â with Â their Â kids. Â And Â at Â least Â when Â they Â are Â ready Â to Â step Â down Â they Â call Â them Â kids, Â not Â youngsters Â or Â pupils Â or Â students. Â Most Â want Â every Â one Â of Â those Â kids Â to Â succeed, Â and Â will Â DGYRFDWHIRUWKHPVRPHWLPHVÂżHUFHO\ They Â have Â less Â tolerance Â for Â things Â that Â get Â in Â the Â way Â of Â what Â they Â see Â as Â the Â best Â way Â to Â teach Â or Â take Â care Â of Â those Â kids, Â like Â confusing Â multiple Â directives Â from Â high-Â er-Âups Â in Â the Â government Â or Â district Â or Â the Â sometimes Â burdensome Â requirements Â from Â standardized Â testing. Teachers Â wish Â people Â would Â un-Â derstand Â their Â work Â day Â doesnâ€™t Â begin Â at Â 8 Â a.m. Â and Â end Â at Â 3 Â p.m., Â nor Â does Â the Â work Â year Â begin Â in Â September Â and Â end Â in Â June. Â Tasks Â like Â planning, Â creating Â new Â units, Â completing Â ongo-Â ing Â personal Â education Â requirements, Â grading Â papers Â and Â tests Â and Â entering Â those Â grades, Â chaperoning Â events, Â at-Â tending Â staff Â meetings, Â serving Â on Â committees, Â answering Â parentsâ€™ Â and Â administratorsâ€™ Â con-Â cerns, Â and Â preparing Â classrooms Â add Â untold Â hours. They Â appreciate Â it Â when Â community Â members Â sup-Â port Â their Â schools Â by Â attending Â events, Â volunteering Â in Â classrooms Â or Â for Â school Â projects, Â or Â taking Â an Â active Â role Â in Â their Â kidsâ€™ Â education. And, Â like Â Lilly, Â they Â love Â it Â when Â students Â take Â the Â time Â to Â say Â thanks. Â My Â wife Â still Â has Â notes Â saved Â from Â a Â decade Â ago, Â when Â she Â taught Â at Â Otter Â Valley. So Â as Â the Â school Â year Â winds Â down, Â hereâ€™s Â a Â message Â HVSHFLDOO\IRUWKHVHQLRUV7DNHDPLQXWHDQGVD\WKDQNV to Â teachers Â who Â have Â meant Â something Â to Â you Â on Â the Â way. Â It Â may Â mean Â more Â to Â them Â than Â you Â know.

Â He Â and Â his Â parents Â moved Â to Â the Â farm Â on Â 22A Â in Â Panton, Â Vt., Â around Â 1947. Â Dwight Â had Â many Â fond Â memories Â of Â working Â and Â growing Â up Â on Â the Â farm Â with Â his Â three Â brothers. Dwight Â graduated Â from Â Vergennes Â Union Â High Â School Â in Â Vergennes Â in Â 1961. On Â Sept. Â 10, Â 1966, Â Dwight Â married Â Susan Â Jane Â Washburn Â of Â Alburg Â Springs, Â Vt.

Â They Â had Â their Â four Â children Â and Â farmed Â there Â until Â 1973. Â At Â that Â time Â they Â moved Â the Â family Â to Â a Â home Â overlooking Â the Â lake Â in Â Panton. Â Dwight Â took Â a Â job Â working Â at Â Champlain Â Valley Â Equipment Â in Â Middlebury Â after Â selling Â the Â farm.
