Sport helps Smith leave MDD in wake

By  JOHN  FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   There   are   times   when   Colin   Smith   feels   like   a   prisoner   in   his   own   body.   Myo-­ tonic  muscular  dystrophy  has  made   him   feel   constantly   fatigued   and   has   weakened   his   muscles   to   the   point   where   he   must   limp   along   with   a   cane.   But   in   his   own   mind,   the  39-­year-­old  can  still  see  himself   juggling   a   soccer   ball,   wielding   a   lacrosse  stick  and  schussing  down  a   ski  slope. He  is  on  permanent  disability  and   at  one  point  had  resigned  himself  to   a  sedentary  future  of  television,  naps   and  living  sports  vicariously  through   the  many  colorful  picture  books  that   adorn   the   coffee   table   in   his   one-­ room  apartment  in  Middlebury. Then  sailing  changed  his  life. Thanks  to  a  supportive,  nurturing   family   and   an   adaptive   therapeutic   sailing   program   called   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Challenged   America,â&#x20AC;?  Smith  has  been  able  to  re-­ discover  a  more  active  lifestyle  that   he   thought   he   had   left   in   his   wake   ZKHQÂżUVWGLDJQRVHGZLWK00'LQ 2000.   For   the   past   three   years   he   has   not   only   sailed   for   fun,   he   has   participated   in   competitions   against   other  folks  with  physical  limitations,   ranging  from  blindness  to  almost  to-­ tal  paralysis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   very   freeing   and   empower-­ ing,â&#x20AC;?  Smith  said  of  his  frequent  sail-­ ing  experiences  on  both  the  East  and

Saving  the  GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  sinking  ship

Pipeline  isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a  top  concern

When   the   Republican   Party   elected   David   Sunderland   as   its   new   party   leader  last  Saturday  in  what  was  described  as  a  contentious  meeting,  it  was   also,  as  Sunderland  said,  a  deliberate  change  in  direction.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  think  today  what  we  can  take  away  from  this  is  that  the  Vermont  Repub-­ lican  Party  has  voted  for  change  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  a  change  in  direction,  a  change  in  tone,â&#x20AC;?   he  said  after  the  vote,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;and  we  plan  on  going  forward.â&#x20AC;? 7KHHOHFWLRQGUHZSUHVVFRYHUDJHEHFDXVHRISDUW\LQÂżJKWLQJDQGSXEOLF differences  aired  by  those  supporting  a  more  moderate  perspective  versus   the  more  conservative  views  that  are  represented  by  the  national  Republican   Party.  During  the  meeting  last  Saturday,  speaker  after  speaker  urged  party   unity.  Sunderlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  election  promises  to  do  just  that.   In   an   in-­depth   interview   in   todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Addison   Independent,   Sunderland   elaborates  on  why  heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  optimistic  that  the  Republican  Party  can  rebuild  in   Vermont  and  why  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  important.  In  both  cases,  heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  right  on  target. It  is  vital  to  democracy  to  have  a  strong  minority  party.  As  it  is  today,  with   just  48  seats  out  of  150  in  the  House  and  seven  of  30  seats  in  the  Senate,  the   Republican   Party   has   no   effective   voice.   That   weakness   prevents   a   more   thorough  and  critical  discussion  of  the  major  ideas  proposed  by  the  gover-­ QRUÂśVDGPLQLVWUDWLRQDQGWKH/HJLVODWXUH It   is   also   true   that   politics   follow   a   pendulum-­like   cycle   and   when   one   party  moves  too  far  in  one  direction,  politics  start  to  swing  back  toward  the   center.  Republicans,  in  other  words,  are  likely  to  see  their  political  fortunes   LPSURYHDVWKHFKDQJHVHQDFWHGXQGHUWKHFXUUHQWDGPLQLVWUDWLRQDQG/HJLV-­ lature  meet  with  resistance  and  disappointment.   But  it  is  not  a  given.   If  the  Vermont  GOP  were  to  insist  on  pressing  the  social  agenda  of  the   national  party,  it  would  continue  its  steady  decline.  And  if  Vermont  Repub-­ licans  were  to  adopt  the  national  partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  extreme  partisanship,  it  would  also   continue   its   decline.   Sunderland   recognizes   that   and   seems   to   embrace   a   more  pragmatic,  and  less  dogmatic  approach.   Among   the   issues   Sunderland   says   Republicans   here   need   to   tackle,   he   cites  the  high  cost  of  living,  an  education  system  that  is  unduly  expensive,   SHQVLRQVWKDWDUHXQGHUIXQGHGDQGDJURZLQJEXGJHWGHÂżFLW$OODUHLVVXHV that  a  strong  Republican  Party  can  champion  and  work  with  Democrats  to   achieve  a  better  outcome  for  Vermont. To  be  successful,  however,  Sunderland  and  his  party  will  have  to  be  put   forward  ideas  that  work  and  solve  current  problems.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  enough  to  criti-­ cize  the  move  toward  a  single-­payer  health  care  system  without  also  admit-­ ting  previous  shortcomings  and  proposing  a  solution.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  enough  to  criti-­ cize  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  education  funding  mechanism  without  also  crafting  a  counter   proposal  that  provides  an  equal  education  to  all  Vermont  students.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not   HQRXJKWREHPRDQWKHVWDWHÂśVGHÂżFLWZLWKRXWDOVRDFFHSWLQJUHVSRQVLELOLW\IRU taking  care  of  the  poor,  sick,  underemployed  and  others  in  need. To  be  a  party  with  a  future,  Republicans  will  have  to  embrace  a  positive   DJHQGDWKDWWDFNOHVÂżQDQFLDOLVVXHVZKLOHDOVRKHOSLQJVROYHVRFLDOLOOV Sunderland  might  also  want  to  put  a  lid  on  some  of  their  most  vocal  cheer-­ leaders,  like  GOP  national  committeeman  Jay  Shepard,  who  cast  a  familiar   pall  on  the  party  when  he  pled  for  unity:  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our  enemy  is  not  in  this  room,â&#x20AC;?   he  told  fellow  Republicans  last  Saturday.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;As  we  sit  here,  the  Democrats  are   planning  another  step  in  taking  away  our  freedoms,  our  liberties  and  our  way   of  life.  Those  are  the  people  that  are  the  real  threatâ&#x20AC;Ś  We  need  to  know  who   the  real  enemy  is.  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll  tell  you  right  now,  the  worst  Republican  I  know  is  a   much  better  person  than  Barack  Obama.â&#x20AC;? In  response,  we  hope  Sunderland  let  out  an  audible  sign  of  despair,  then   hoisted  up  his  belt  for  the  struggle  ahead.  As  well  as  a  good  sense  of  humor,   a  steady  hand  on  party  policy  and  the  cleverness  of  a  public  relations  guru,   Sunderland   might   also   need   a   long   shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   crook   to   pull   a   few   of   his   ZRXOGEHIULHQGVRIIVWDJHEHIRUHWKH\VLQNDERDWWKDWLVEDUHO\DĂ&#x20AC;RDW

So  we  had  a  meeting  Tuesday,  Nov.   5,  to  get  an  update  from  Vermont  Gas   and  give  input  to  a  possible  Memo-­ randum  of  Understanding  (MOU)   from  the  selectboard.  Everybody  was   polite,  well  mannered  and  mostly  on   topic,  so  I  never  gave  my  little  speech.   Here  it  is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  had  a  family  wedding  at  the   house  in  July  with  visitors  from  sev-­ eral  cities  that  have  had  recent  experi-­ ence  with  violence  and  tragedy.  When   they  saw  the  sign  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Keep  Shoreham   Safe,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;  they  thought  we  had  a  serial   killer  on  the  loose.  After  explaining   that  it  was  about  the  natural  gas  pipe-­ line  they  just  smiled,  content  to  be  in   Vermont  for  a  couple  of  happy  days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Natural  gas  is  maybe  not  the  per-­ fect  solution  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  we  may  all  pass  away   before  perfection  arrives  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  but  is  a   heck  of  a  lot  cleaner  and  cheaper,  for   equivalent  BTUs,  than  the  dirty  heat-­ ing  fuels  used  today.  It  would  be  great   if  some  of  the  energy  used  on  pipeline   issues  could  be  rechanneled  on  other   real  issues  facing  Addison  County   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  livable  wages,  substance  abuse,   health,  hunger,  housing,  education  and   yes,  also  the  energy  environment.â&#x20AC;?

A  second  opportunity  is  to  engage  the  public  in  the  discussion  of  the  pros   and  cons  of  this  particular  site,  which  will  inevitably  also  include  comments   and  discussion  of  the  overall  project.  There  is  time  to  do  so.   But  it  will  also  be  important  for  the  public  to  stay  on  task,  focusing  on  a   ORFDWLRQIRUWKHUHFUHDWLRQDOFHQWHULWVJHQHUDOGHVLJQDQGWUDIÂżFĂ&#x20AC;RZ,IWKDW LVWKHWDVNDWKDQGZHÂśUHFRQÂżGHQWWKHDUFKLWHFWVDQGWKHVWHHULQJFRPPLWWHH in  charge  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  along  wth  ample  community  discussion  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  can  reach  a  suitable   solution  in  time  for  the  vote  at  Town  Meeting.

 On  the  importance  of  writing  well Some   years   ago   the   author   and   historian   David   Mc-­ Cullough   (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Truman,â&#x20AC;?   â&#x20AC;&#x153;John   Adams,â&#x20AC;?   â&#x20AC;&#x153;1776â&#x20AC;?)   gave   a   lecture   called   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why   History   Matters.â&#x20AC;?   In   it,   he   talked   about  the  importance  of  teaching  American  history  and   recounted   the   struggles   and   triumphs   of   the   Founding   Fathers. In  the  question-­and-­answer  portion  a  man  asked  Mc-­ Cullough  what  he  thought  about  the  fact  that  no  one  in   this   day   and   age   writes   letters,   like   Jefferson,   Franklin   and   Adams   did,   and   why   no   one   today   bothers   with   correct  spelling  and  grammar. McCullough  lamented  the  fact  that   few  people  keep  a  diary,  write  letters   By  Zach or   otherwise   express   their   thoughts   Despart on  paper.  He  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;In  the  process  of   writing  we  come  up  with  the  idea  we   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  know  we  had.  The  mere  act  of  writing  focuses  the   brain  in  a  way  nothing  else  does.â&#x20AC;? And  he  is  right.  There  is  no  greater  skill  than  to  be  able   to  express  oneself  effectively.  Nothing  stirs  the  creative   process,   creates   new   ideas   or   expands   the   limits   of   the   mind  like  putting  pen  to  paper.  I,  of  course,  am  biased  in   this  matter  because  I  have  chosen  to  write  for  a  living.   But  it  remains  true  for  everyone  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  the  ability  to  articu-­ late  an  argument  cogently  expands  well  beyond  journal-­ ism,  into  every  personal  and  professional  endeavor. :ULWLQJLVQRWHDV\ DV+HPLQJZD\VDLGWKHÂżUVWGUDIW of   anything   is   crap).   The   process   is   tedious   and   lone-­ some,  and  forces  you  to  think  critically.  It  is  where  big   ideas  are  born.

Writing   requires   a   sustained   attention   we,   or   at   least   people  around  my  age  (23),  are  not  accustomed  to.  There   are  no  shortcuts,  and  the  only  way  to  do  it  well  is  to  do   it  all  the  time.  But  it  is  the  greatest  skill  one  can  possess,   and  when  done  well  is  immensely  satisfying. So  I  have  a  proposition.  First,  that  everyone  pick  up  a   pen  and  write  something  every  week.  It  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  have  to   be  pages  and  pages  of  prose.  It  can  be  something  simple,   like   a   letter   to   a   friend   or   relative,   an   entry   in   a   diary,   an   observation   of  something  you  saw,  a  letter  to  the   editor  for  the  Independent.  It  might  be   enjoyable  or  it  might  be  dull.  It  might   be  great,  or  it  might  be  crap.  But  you   will  be  a  smarter  person  for  it. Second   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   and   this   is   mostly   di-­ rected  at  younger  people  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  (re)learn   cursive.   My   third-­grade   teacher,   Mrs.  Van   Oort,   drilled   cursive  into  us  and  said  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d  need  it  as  adults.  My  class   thought  this  was  silly,  and  being  left  handed  and  writing   in  pencil,  I  smudged  everything  to  all  hell  anyway.  It  is   true,  you  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  need  to  know  cursive  to  function  in  the   world.  But  you  should.

Between The Lines

I  see  that  farmers  in  Switzerland  are   having  the  same  problems  we  have   in  Vermont,  trash  along  the  highway.   Their  cows  are  dying  from  eating   chopped  up  trash.  Their  machines   pick  up  the  trash  with  hay  and  chop   it  up  into  feed  which  kills  the  cows.   The  Swiss  value  their  cows  to  help   produce  the  famous  cheeses  from  that   region,  and  the  Swiss  are  known  for   cleanliness  and  neatness. How  many  cows  have  been  killed   by  trash  in  Addison  County? I  have  been  trying  to  get  our  local   legislators  excited  about  reducing   roadside  trash,  by  improving  our  re-­ WXUQDEOHERWWOHELOO,ÂżQGERWWOHVDORQJ the  road  that  are  returnable  in  Maine   and  Hawaii  and  other  states  but  not  in   Vermont. Why  not? I  have  asked  our  legislators  why  not   and  they  mumble  something  about  the   effect  on  local  stores  or  something. Why  isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  a  McDonalds  coffee  pa-­ per  cup  returnable?  McDonalds  Corp.   is  rich  enough  to  pay  its  CEO  mil-­ lions,  but  its  workers  get  paid  poverty   wages.  (But  that  is  a  whole  different   matter  about  if  a  company  needs  slave   labor  to  stay  in  business,  it  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   deserve  to  be  in  business.) So,  lets  get  together  and  talk  to   our  legislators  about  cleaning  up  our   highways,  starting  with  an  improved   returnable  bill  for  bottles  and  coffee   cups  and  water  bottles  and  whatever   ZHÂżQGDORQJWKHURDG$QGWKHQKRZ do  we  train  people  that  their  mothers   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  follow  after  them  so  they  have   to  pick  up  after  themselves?

The  nation  could  use  a  new  Food,  Farm  and  Jobs  Bill 7KLVIDOO&RQJUHVVKDVDQLP-­ portant  opportunity  to  create  jobs   and  grow  the  economy  by  passing   a  long-­term,  comprehensive  Food,   Farm  and  Jobs  Bill.  The  Vermont   &RQJUHVVLRQDO'HOHJDWLRQ²6HQ /HDK\6HQ6DQGHUVDQG5HS:HOFK â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  are  working  hard  to  pass  the   Farm  Bill  because  they  know  it  af-­ fects  every  American,  every  day,  by   providing  a  wide  range  of  programs   that  strengthen  our  nation. The  Farm  Bill  is  crucial  to  main-­ taining  a  strong  agricultural  sector   and  an  abundant  food  supply  that   EHQHÂżWDOO$PHULFDQV2YHUWKHSDVW two  years,  producers  have  faced  a   multitude  of  disasters  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  including   GURXJKWĂ&#x20AC;RRGLQJDQGEOL]]DUGV These  events  demonstrate  how  im-­ portant  the  safety  net  is  to  keeping   producers  going  strong.  Under  the   2008  Farm  Bill,  the  Farm  Service   Agency  was  able  to  provide  over   $12  million  in  disaster  assistance  in   Vermont  farmers  using  Farm  Bill   programs. A  new  Food,  Farm  and  Jobs  Bill   would  provide  a  new  dairy  program   supported  by  Vermont  dairy  farm-­ ers,  a  strong  crop  insurance  pro-­ gram,  reauthorize  the  now-­expired   disaster  assistance  programs,  and   provide  retroactive  assistance  for   livestock  producers.  By  reforming   the  safety  net  to  eliminate  the  direct   payment  program  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  which  pays   producers  whether  or  not  they  are  

in  need  of  assistance  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  the  Food,   Farm  and  Jobs  Bill  would  also   save  billions  of  dollars  in  the  next   decade. In  addition,  it  would  allow  USDA   to  continue  export  promotion  efforts   WKDWKDYHOHGWRWKHEHVWÂżYH\HDU period  in  agricultural  trade  in   American  history,  and  provide  FSA   with  the  tools  to  extend  additional   farm  credit  in  Vermont. The  Farm  Bill  is  also  a  job   creation  bill  that  would  empower   USDA  to  partner  with  rural  commu-­ nities  to  grow,  expand  and  support   new  businesses.  A  new  Food,  Farm   and  Jobs  Bill  would  help  Main   Street  businesses  grow  and  hire   more,  strengthen  infrastructure  in   our  small  towns  and  provide  new   opportunities  in  bio-­based  product   manufacturing  and  renewable  ener-­ gy.  For  example,  in  Vermont,  USDA   has  provided  more  than  $10.2   million  since  2009  to  help  farmers,   ranchers  and  rural  businesses  save   energy  through  the  Rural  Energy  for   America  Program.  This  and  many   other  efforts  could  continue  with  a   new  Farm  Bill. A  new  Food,  Farm  and  Jobs  Bill   would  make  important  investments   in  nutrition  programs  that  provide   critical  assistance  to  vulnerable   Americans,  including  children,   seniors,  people  with  disabilities  who   are  unable  to  work,  and  returning   veterans.  It  would  enable  USDA  to

Greg  Dennis (Continued  from  Page  4A) was   struck   by   how   diminished   the   myth  has  become.   Kennedy   essentially   lived   a   lie.   And  for  many  years  during  and  after   his  presidency,  we  believed  that  lie. He  was  a  courageous  war  hero,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   true,   and   he   was   indisputably   good   looking,  charming,  hardworking  and   IXQQ\ +H LQVSLUHG FRQÂżGHQFH DQG made  America  believe  in  a  new  gen-­ eration  of  leaders. But  as  the  numerous  histories  and   TV  shows  make  clear,  the  public  was   fed  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  bought  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  a  steady  series   of  untruths  about  the  rest  of  his  life. We   can   see   now   how   recklessly   he  lived.  We  may  never  know  if  that   recklessness  led  to  his  death.  But  it   surely  put  the  country  in  more  peril. Kennedy   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   write   most   of   Âł3URÂżOHVLQ&RXUDJH´WKHERRNWKDW brought   him   so   much   acclaim.   He   was  a  lazy  legislator  as  a  congress-­ man   and   senator.   Depicted   as   vig-­ orous   and   the   picture   of   health,   he   suffered   for   much   of   his   life   from   colitis,   a   debilitating   intestinal   dis-­ order.  The  powerful  steroids  used  to   treat  the  disease  eroded  his  spine  and   left  him  in  constant  pain.

He  also  developed  Addisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  dis-­ ease,   a   life-­threatening   disorder   of   the  adrenal  glands.  The  steroids  used   to  treat  that  disease  further  debilitat-­ ed  him  and  left  his  skin  a  darkening   yellow.  His  handlers  passed  it  off  as   a  perpetual  tan.   To  deal  with  the  severe  back  pain   and   fatigue,   Kennedy   had   his   own   Dr.   Feelgood,   Max   Jacobsen,   inject   him  dozens  of  times  with  a  mixture   reported   to   contain   amphetamines,   bone  marrow,  human  placenta,  pain-­ killers,   steroids   and   multivitamins.   Âł,GRQÂśWFDUHLILWÂśVKRUVHSLVV´WKH president   was   said   to   remark.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   ZRUNV´

His   marriage   to   Jackie   was   por-­ trayed   by   the   press   as   a   storybook   fable,   marred   only   by   miscarriages.   %XW EHKLQG WKH &DPHORW FXUWDLQ KH was  a  compulsive  womanizer.  He  se-­ duced  White  House  interns  and  slept   with  a  parade  of  other  women,  prob-­ ably  including  Marilyn  Monroe  and   GHÂżQLWHO\ LQFOXGLQJ -XGLWK &DPS-­ bell   Exner.   He   used   Exner   to   carry   messages   and   perhaps   payoffs   to   mobsters  Sam  Giancana  and  Johnny   Roselli.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  well  beyond  me  and  the  space

ENGAGEMENTS

Reaber-Spina, Hartman STARKSBORO   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Susan   Reaber   and   Frank   Spina   of   Starksboro   announce   the   engage-­ ment   of   their   daughter   Sarah   Reaber-­Spina   to   Eric   Hartman,   son  of  Stan  and  Jodee  Hartman  of   Lincoln. The   wedding   is   planned   for   June  21,  2014,  at  the  home  of  the   brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  parents.  

At Bixby: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;American Food Historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; focuses on modern eating habits VERGENNES   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Food   historian   Abigail  Carroll  will  present  â&#x20AC;&#x153;American   Food  History:  From  Dinner  Pails  to  TV   Dinnersâ&#x20AC;?   at   Bixby   Memorial   Library   in   Vergennes   on   Thursday,   Nov.   21,   at  7  p.m.  as  part  of  its  Third  Thursday   series. Food  is  both  a  passion  and  a  concern   for  many  people  in  todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  fast-­paced   world,   whether   they   are   reality   food   show  junkies,  amateur  bakers  blogging   about   their   newest   creations,   parents   concerned  about  their  childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  nutrition,   DFWLYLVWV ÂżJKWLQJ IRU WUDQVSDUHQF\ LQ food  labeling,  or  politicians  pushing  for   food  legislation  to  limit  portion  sizes  at   fast   food   restaurants.   But   the   focus   is   mainly  on  what  people  eat  rather  than   how  they  eat. From  her  new  book  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three  Squares:   The  Invention  of  the  American  Mealâ&#x20AC;?   (Basic   Books;Íž   Sept.   10,   2013),   food   scholar   and   historian   Abigail   Carroll   tells   the   story   behind   modern   eating   habits,   serving   up   a   soup-­to-­nuts   history   of   the   American   meal,   from   pease   porridge   and   cornmeal   mush   to   tuna-­noodle   casseroles   and   TV   Time   popcorn.   Along   the   way   she   helps   relieve   the   guilt   many   people   feel   over   such   supposed   transgres-­ sions   as   repeatedly   failing   to   keep   to   the   â&#x20AC;&#x153;sacredâ&#x20AC;?   family   dinner,   snacking   between  meals,  and  eating  on  the  go. Carroll   will   explain   that   our   eating   habits  have  never  been  stable  and  that   the   eating   patterns   we   try   so   hard   to   adhere   to   today   are   relatively   recent   inventions  that  evolved  over  time  and   will  continue  to  evolve  going  forward. As   Carroll   demonstrates   in   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three   6TXDUHV´ D YDULHW\ RI LQĂ&#x20AC;XHQFHV ² Native   American,   French   and   British

â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  formed  our  forebearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  eating  habits   and  determined  the  way  we  dine  today.   Drawing   on   travel   journals,   early   cookbooks,  advertisements  and  a  host   of   other   primary   sources,   Carroll   has   made   an   in-­depth   examination   of   the   American   meal.   By   understanding   the  history  of  the  American  meal,  she   explains,  people  can  help  determine  its   future.

With  so  many  cases  and  such  a   burden  placed  on  our  communities   by   these   viruses,   it   is   important   to   do   what   we   can   to   prevent   the   spread.  I  encourage  you  to  remem-­ ber  three  simple  steps: *HWDĂ&#x20AC;XVKRW 2.  Wash  your  hands 3.  Cover  your  cough *HWDĂ&#x20AC;XVKRW 7KH Ă&#x20AC;X VKRW RQO\ SURWHFWV DJDLQVW LQĂ&#x20AC;XHQ]D YLUXVHV 7KHUH
