Vergennes (Continued Â from Â Page Â 2A) School. Â â€œThere Â were Â some Â reasonable Â con-Â cerns Â â€Ś Â about Â parking Â and Â location,â€? Â Klopfenstein Â said. Â Hawley Â said Â a Â central Â question Â was Â where Â parents Â who Â drove Â to Â the Â playground Â would Â park Â during Â school Â hours, Â when Â parking Â is Â at Â a Â premium. Â Hawley Â did Â respond Â to Â one Â objec-Â tion Â to Â the Â proposal. Â Some, Â he Â said, Â wonder Â why Â it Â is Â needed Â when Â there Â is Â a Â playground Â behind Â VUES. Â But Â Hawley Â said Â that Â playground Â is Â off Â limits Â to Â all Â except Â VUES Â students Â during Â school Â hours, Â and Â the Â city Â lacks Â facilities Â for Â preschoolers. 2IÂżFLDOV VDLG WKH\ XQGHUVWRRG WKH Vermont Â Department Â of Â Buildings Â and Â General Â Services Â would Â review Â the Â grant Â application Â later Â this Â month, Â and Â they Â hoped Â to Â know Â more Â by Â Novem-Â ber.

Haggett Â said Â most Â of Â the Â work Â should Â consist Â of Â updating Â the Â â€œfac-Â tualâ€? Â portions Â of Â the Â document, Â such Â as Â Census Â data. Â Other Â than Â tweaks Â of Â some Â policies Â and Â possibly Â elimination Â RIVRPHRWKHUVWKDWFDOOIRUVSHFLÂżFDF-Â tions Â that Â have Â already Â been Â taken, Â he Â said Â he Â does Â not Â expect Â major Â changes. â€œThere Â probably Â wonâ€™t Â be Â a Â lot Â of Â substantial Â updates,â€? Â he Â said. Hawley, Â also Â the Â cityâ€™s Â zoning Â ad-Â ministrator, Â said Â â€œbecause Â the Â 2009 Â plan Â is Â a Â very Â good Â planâ€? Â he Â does Â not Â expect Â a Â full Â rewrite, Â meaning Â the Â adoption Â process Â could Â be Â relatively Â simple. Â â€œWeâ€™re Â hoping Â at Â this Â point Â we Â can Â do Â an Â update, Â so Â it Â is Â really Â a Â re-Âadop-Â tion,â€? Â he Â said. Unlike Â the Â last Â adoption Â process, Â a Â full Â rewrite Â that Â required Â a Â couple Â years, Â Haggett Â said Â he Â expects Â the Â tar-Â get Â date Â of Â next Â November Â to Â be Â met, Â even Â with Â plenty Â of Â formal Â and Â infor-Â mal Â public Â meetings Â in Â the Â mix. Â â€œOur Â target Â is Â to Â get Â this Â to Â you Â by Â the Â end Â of Â May,â€? Â he Â said.

SELLERâ€™S HOME INSPECTION Â Â Once Â a Â house Â is Â under Â contract, Â
standard Â protocol Â dictates Â that Â the Â buyer Â will Â pay Â for Â an Â inspection Â of Â the Â property. Â Inspectors Â are Â required Â to Â fully Â GLVFORVHWKHLUÂżQGLQJVWRERWKWKH buyer Â and Â the Â seller. Â Failure Â to Â disclose Â problematic Â issues Â with Â a Â property Â can Â jeopardize Â the Â contract, Â and Â many Â buyers Â balk Â at Â the Â idea Â of Â repairs Â made Â that Â are Â only Â contingent Â on Â the Â sale Â of Â a Â home. Â Proactive Â sellers Â may Â opt Â to Â pay Â for Â a Â home Â inspection Â as Â part Â of Â the Â closing Â agreement, Â or Â in Â some Â cases, Â before Â their Â home Â is Â even Â listed. Â Knowing Â that Â thereâ€™s Â a Â problem Â beforehand Â allows Â the Â seller Â the Â time Â to Â complete Â necessary Â repairs Â and Â avoids Â negotiations Â with Â the Â buyer Â regarding Â who Â will Â be Â responsible Â for Â what Â repairs, Â how Â they Â will Â be Â handled, Â and Â at Â what Â cost. Â Preemptive Â action Â on Â the Â part Â of Â the Â seller Â prevents Â a Â delay Â on Â the Â sale Â of Â their Â home, Â leading Â to Â less Â stress Â for Â all Â parties Â concerned. Â Providing Â a Â buyer Â with Â documentation Â of Â your Â homeâ€™s Â inspection Â shows Â that Â your Â transaction Â is Â being Â handled Â in Â good Â faith, Â ensures Â the Â buyer Â that Â theyâ€™re Â not Â buying Â someone Â elseâ€™s Â problems, Â and Â expedites Â the Â closing Â process. Â Itâ€™s Â an Â added Â expense Â that Â pays Â off Â big Â when Â your Â home Â is Â on Â the Â market. Â Ingrid Â Punderson Â Jackson Real Â Estate Â‡FHOO WROOIUHH www.middvermontrealestate.com

Â Leibovich Â is Â describing Â political Â Washington, Â not Â Our Â Town. Our Â Town Â is Â a Â land Â full Â of Â people Â who Â were Â born Â and Â raised Â here, Â or Â who Â moved Â here Â decades Â ago Â to Â work Â and Â raise Â families: Â the Â beloved Â barber, Â the Â Redskins Â fan Â who Â painted Â his Â house Â red Â and Â gold, Â the Â school Â teacher Â who Â stays Â late Â every Â day Â to Â conference Â with Â working Â parents. The Â great Â irony Â is Â that Â the Â people Â of Â Our Â Town Â proper Â donâ€™t Â actu-Â ally Â have Â a Â vote Â in Â the Â Capitol Â of Â Crazy. But Â suddenly Â our Â parks, Â streets Â and Â playgrounds Â have Â been Â closed Â E\ODZPDNHUVZKRDUULYHKHUHRQ0RQGD\DIWHUQRRQDQGĂ€\RXWRQ Thursday Â so Â they Â donâ€™t Â have Â to Â spend Â any Â more Â time Â in Â the Â political Â yuckpit Â theyâ€™ve Â created. Our Â Town Â extends Â to Â the Â sprawling Â suburbs Â of Â Virginia Â and Â Maryland, Â where Â hundreds Â of Â thousands Â of Â analysts, Â architects, Â accountants, Â waitresses, Â doctors Â and Â construction Â workers Â live Â and Â work. Â They Â are Â moderate, Â reasonable Â people Â who Â send Â moderate Â and Â reasonable Â representatives Â to Â Congress, Â not Â kooks. Many Â of Â them Â are Â hurting Â right Â now Â because Â theyâ€™ve Â been Â fur-Â loughed Â by Â this Â unnecessary Â shutdown Â thatâ€™s Â nothing Â more Â than Â a Â giant Â chess Â game Â for Â the Â folks Â who Â arenâ€™t Â from Â here. Â Our Â Town Â is Â the Â sandwich Â shops, Â dry Â cleaners, Â taxi Â drivers Â and Â food Â trucks Â getting Â skunked Â in Â this Â political Â game. When Â Miriam Â Carey Â was Â gunned Â down Â by Â police Â after Â her Â wild Â car Â chase Â through Â our Â Town Â last Â Thursday, Â lawmakers Â gave Â a Â standing Â ovation Â to Â the Â U.S. Â Capitol Â Police, Â who Â were Â working Â to Â keep Â these Â folks Â safe Â even Â though Â they Â werenâ€™t Â getting Â their Â paychecks. The Â very Â next Â day Â a Â man Â saluted Â the Â Capitol, Â doused Â himself Â with Â JDVROLQHDQGVHWKLPVHOIRQÂżUH+HGLHG)ULGD\QLJKWDQGLQYHVWL-Â gators Â still Â donâ€™t Â know Â who Â he Â was Â or Â what Â his Â motive Â might Â have Â EHHQ$OOZHNQRZIRUVXUHLVWKDWKHKDGVRPHNLQGRIPHVVDJHDQG it Â wasnâ€™t Â good. Meanwhile, Â This Â Town Â went Â on Â with Â its Â life, Â continuing Â the Â fundraising Â dinners, Â the Â power Â lunches. Â They Â donâ€™t Â really Â care Â what Â theyâ€™ve Â done Â to Â Our Â Town. Hereâ€™s Â how Â brazen Â and Â hypocritical Â they Â are. Â Last Â week. Â Rep. Â Ran-Â dy Â Neugebauer, Â R-ÂTexas, Â berated Â a Â U.S. Â Park Â Service Â ranger Â whoâ€™d Â been Â told Â she Â couldnâ€™t Â allow Â veterans Â to Â visit Â the Â shutdown Â World Â War Â II Â memorial. Â He Â had Â a Â nearly Â bipolar Â response Â to Â the Â shutdown, Â which Â he Â helped Â orchestrate. â€œThe Â Park Â Service Â should Â be Â ashamed,â€? Â Neugebauer Â said, Â in Â a Â video Â captured Â by Â NBC Â News. â€œIâ€™m Â not Â ashamed,â€? Â said Â the Â ranger, Â a Â citizen Â of Â Our Â Town. â€œWell, Â you Â should Â be,â€?

VHC Â website Â is Â in Â very Â poor Â health Last Â Sunday, Â in Â order Â to Â learn Â more Â about Â Vermont Â Health Â Connect, Â I Â explored Â the Â VHC Â website Â to Â get Â in-Â formation Â on Â insurance Â options Â for Â a Â hypothetical Â family Â of Â two Â adults Â and Â two Â children Â with Â Vermontâ€™s Â median Â household Â income Â of Â $53,000. The Â site Â is Â very Â slow. Â On Â several Â occasions, Â it Â froze Â up Â DQG , UHFHLYHG DQ HUURU PHVVDJH :KHQ WKH VLWH ÂżQDOO\ UHVSRQGHG LW WRRN PRUH WKDQ ÂżYH PLQXWHV WR HQWHU WKH data Â â€” Â monthly Â income Â and Â ages Â â€” Â for Â my Â hypothetical Â household Â and Â get Â a Â list Â of Â insurance Â plans Â available Â IRUWKHP,ILWWRRNÂżYHPLQXWHVWRJHW a Â list Â of Â plans Â on Â a Â Sunday Â afternoon, Â how Â long Â does Â it Â take Â on Â weekdays, Â when Â much Â larger Â numbers Â of Â indi-Â viduals, Â businesses, Â insurance Â bro-Â kers Â and Â navigators Â are Â attempting Â to Â By Â Eric Â L. Â Davis use Â the Â site? More Â importantly, Â once Â I Â entered Â the Â data Â for Â my Â hypothetical Â house-Â hold, Â the Â website Â gave Â me Â contradictory Â information. Â Before Â I Â started Â browsing Â for Â insurance Â options, Â I Â went Â to Â the Â â€œVermont Â Health Â Connect Â Subsidy Â Calculatorâ€? Â on Â the Â VHC Â home Â page Â and Â put Â in Â the Â following Â data: Â household Â income Â $53,000, Â two Â adults, Â two Â children Â under Â age Â 26. Â The Â subsidy Â calculator Â told Â me Â that Â â€œyour Â householdâ€™s Â monthly Â subsidy Â will Â be Â $909.â€? When Â I Â re-Âentered Â the Â same Â data Â on Â the Â â€œHealth Â Cover-Â age Â Eligibility Â Screenerâ€? Â page Â on Â the Â VHC Â website, Â the Â site Â told Â me Â that Â â€œbased Â on Â the Â information Â you Â told Â us, Â it Â looks Â like Â there Â might Â be Â people Â in Â your Â family Â who Â qualify Â for Â help Â paying Â for Â health Â coverage.â€? Â I Â assumed Â that Â once Â I Â went Â deeper Â into Â the Â site, Â I Â would Â be Â presented Â
ZLWKLQVXUDQFHRSWLRQVWKDWUHĂ€HFWHGDPRQWKO\VXEVLG\ of Â approximately Â $909, Â as Â indicated Â by Â the Â subsidy Â cal-Â culator. Â However, Â this Â was Â not Â the Â case. Â When Â I Â went Â forward Â from Â the Â â€œEligibility Â Screenerâ€? Â page Â to Â the Â â€œPlan Â Selectionâ€? Â page, Â I Â was Â told Â that Â â€œyou Â are Â not Â likely Â to Â qualify Â for Â a Â tax Â credit Â to Â help Â you Â pay Â for Â health Â insurance. Â You Â should Â expect Â that Â the Â plan Â costs Â shown Â here Â will Â be Â similar Â to Â what Â you Â will Â pay Â if Â you Â enroll.â€? Â The Â costs Â on Â the Â website Â for Â a Â bronze Â family Â plan Â â€” Â a Â plan Â with Â relatively Â low Â premiums Â but Â high Â po-Â tential Â out-Âof-Âpocket Â costs Â â€” Â were Â between Â $650 Â and Â $700 Â a Â month. Â The Â Subsidy Â Calculator Â page Â had Â told Â me Â earlier Â that Â the Â cost Â of Â a Â bronze Â plan Â for Â my Â hypothetical Â household Â would Â be Â between Â $63 Â and Â $93 Â a Â month. Â So Â within Â the Â same Â website, Â there Â was Â a Â difference Â of Â approximately Â $600 Â per Â month, Â or Â over Â $7,000 Â a Â year, Â for Â the Â cost Â of Â health Â insurance Â for Â a Â family Â whose Â income Â is Â at Â the Â median Â level Â for Â Vermont. Â The Â VHC Â website, Â like Â many Â other Â health Â insurance Â exchange Â sites Â around Â the Â country, Â appears Â to Â have Â been Â brought Â online Â without Â adequate Â testing.

,I,UDQP\IDPLO\ÂżQDQFHVRULI, were Â a Â corporate Â executive Â that Â ran Â my Â company Â the Â way Â Washington, Â D.C., Â runs Â our Â country, Â I Â would Â be Â in Â jail Â or Â at Â least Â bankrupt. Â Raising Â the Â federal Â debt Â limit Â is Â like Â a Â family Â opening Â another Â credit Â card Â to Â add Â to Â the Â dozens Â of Â already Â maxed-Âout Â credit Â accounts. Â The Â government Â has Â no Â money Â of Â its Â own, Â all Â of Â the Â money Â that Â is Â spent Â by Â the Â government Â is Â received Â from Â taxpayers. Â Note Â that Â I Â did Â not Â say Â from Â â€œthe Â peopleâ€? Â but Â from Â the Â taxpayers, Â because Â approxi-Â mately Â 50 Â percent Â of Â the Â people Â pay Â no Â federal Â income Â tax Â whatsoever. Returning Â to Â my Â household Â anal-Â ogy, Â the Â median Â family Â income Â in Â the Â U.S. Â is Â approximately Â $50,000 Â per Â year. Â If Â that Â family Â were Â to Â spend Â $75,000 Â per Â year, Â there Â would Â be Â a Â GHÂżFLWHDFK\HDU$IWHU years, Â that Â would Â be Â a Â total Â debt Â of Â $50,000 Â and Â after Â 3 Â years, Â $75,000 Â etc. Â This Â family Â would Â be Â borrowing Â $25,000 Â per Â year Â and Â every Â time Â they Â get Â to Â the Â limit Â of Â a Â loan Â or Â credit Â card, Â they Â would Â have Â to Â get Â a Â new Â loan Â or Â open Â another Â credit Â card Â to Â continue Â borrowing. This Â is Â where Â the Â U.S. Â has Â been Â ap-Â proximately Â 55 Â times Â since Â the Â 1970s. Â Every Â time Â the Â government Â gets Â to Â the Â end Â of Â its Â borrowing Â limit, Â we Â have Â to Â raise Â the Â debt Â ceiling Â so Â they Â can Â continue Â borrowing. Â In Â your Â fam-Â ily Â budget, Â you Â can Â only Â continue Â to Â borrow Â for Â a Â limited Â time Â before Â all Â of Â your Â credit Â is Â maxed Â out Â and Â no Â one Â will Â give Â you Â more Â credit. Not Â so Â with Â the Â U.S. Â government. Â They Â can Â continue Â to Â borrow Â and Â rack Â up Â insane Â amounts Â of Â debt Â with Â no Â end Â in Â sight Â as Â long Â as Â we, Â The Â People, Â allow Â them Â to. Â The Â fed-Â eral Â government Â can Â just Â print Â more Â money, Â which Â will Â lead Â to Â devaluation Â of Â the Â currency, Â or Â borrow Â more Â from Â a Â country Â like Â China Â who Â would Â like Â nothing Â more Â than Â to Â see Â the Â U.S. Â take Â DVHULRXVÂżQDQFLDOKLW In Â your Â personal Â family Â budget, Â you Â must Â learn Â to Â live Â within Â your Â means. Â You Â must Â balance Â your Â household Â budget, Â which Â requires Â you Â to Â make Â choices Â and Â prioritize Â your Â spending. Â Paying Â the Â mortgage Â or Â rent, Â utilities, Â car Â payment, Â food Â and Â other Â neces-Â sities Â take Â priority Â over Â other Â nones-Â sential Â items. Â You Â realize Â that Â you Â may Â not Â be Â able Â to Â do Â everything Â you Â would Â like Â but Â can, Â at Â least, Â do Â what Â you Â must Â and Â maybe Â some Â of Â what Â you Â would Â like. The Â federal Â government Â must Â do Â certain Â things Â that Â are Â spelled Â out Â in Â our Â Constitution. Â Everything Â else Â is Â supposed Â to Â be Â severely Â limited Â or Â left Â up Â to Â the Â individual Â states. Â We Â as Â a Â nation Â can Â just Â not Â afford Â to Â keep Â spending Â over Â $1 Â trillion Â more Â every Â year Â than Â is Â taken Â in Â from Â taxes Â and Â other Â revenue. Â Eventually, Â this Â will Â cause Â a Â collapse Â of Â our Â economic Â system Â that Â will Â likely Â have Â devastat-Â ing Â consequences. Just Â think Â about Â your Â household Â budget. Â For Â how Â long Â could Â you Â con-Â tinue Â to Â spend Â 50 Â percent Â more Â than Â you Â earn Â every Â single Â year Â before Â the Â house Â of Â credit Â cards Â you Â have Â built Â comes Â tumbling Â down Â around Â you.

Letters to the Editor Media Â imparts Â false Â bullying Â portrayal Â of Â Mount Â Abe In Â reading Â the Â article Â published Â immediately Â following Â Olivia Â Scottâ€™s Â death, Â I Â was Â very Â upset Â by Â the Â way Â Mount Â Abraham Â Union Â High Â School Â was Â presented Â to Â the Â public Â â€” Â as Â this Â dark Â prison Â of Â hellish Â bullying Â in Â which Â counselors Â donâ€™t Â care Â and Â administrators Â do Â nothing Â when Â an Â individual Â cries Â out Â for Â help. Â As Â a Â stu-Â GHQW,ÂżUPO\EHOLHYHWKDWRXUVFKRRO is Â a Â good Â place Â to Â be, Â our Â community Â is Â one Â of Â acceptance, Â and Â its Â staff Â a Â group Â of Â adults Â deeply Â concerned Â about Â our Â emotional Â well-Âbeing. Contrary Â to Â what Â may Â now Â be Â
popular Â belief, Â I Â do Â not Â observe Â or Â hear Â about Â bullying Â in Â my Â day-Âto-Âday Â life. Â It Â is Â my Â theory Â that, Â as Â in Â all Â high Â schools, Â there Â are Â pockets Â within Â the Â student Â body Â in Â which Â bullying Â is Â prevalent, Â but Â overall, Â most Â of Â us Â are Â left, Â unbothered, Â to Â be Â ourselves Â within Â our Â friend Â groups. I Â am Â disturbed Â with Â the Â way Â our Â school Â has Â been Â torn Â apart Â by Â the Â media. Â We Â are Â not Â that Â place. Â I Â understand Â that Â this Â tragedy Â lends Â LWVHOIWRSRLQWLQJÂżQJHUVDQGWKDWWKH school Â is Â an Â easy Â target. Â But Â I Â ask Â for Â the Â simple Â recognition Â that Â we, Â too, Â
are Â a Â grieving Â community Â struggling Â to Â comprehend Â our Â recent Â loss, Â and Â that Â we Â do Â not Â need Â the Â added Â guilt Â thrown Â over Â us Â as Â another Â burden Â to Â bear. Everyone Â at Â Mount Â Abe Â who Â knew Â Olivia, Â including Â the Â faculty Â that Â has Â been Â essentially Â labeled Â cold Â and Â indifferent, Â already Â feels Â responsible Â enough, Â and Â we Â will Â all Â carry Â that Â weight Â for Â the Â rest Â of Â our Â lives.

Carl Peabody, 75, Middlebury MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Much Â to Â his Â surprise, Â Carl Â Alan Â Peabody Â (DOB Â 5/9/38) Â arrived Â at Â the Â Pearly Â Gates Â on Â October Â 11, Â 2013. Â He Â checked Â the Â pearls Â carefully Â to Â make Â sure Â they Â were Â real. Â Then Â the Â gates Â opened Â and Â Carl Â stepped Â inside Â announcing, Â â€œIf Â youâ€™re Â having Â a Â good Â time, Â smile.â€? Â He Â was Â met Â by Â his Â parents, Â Alice Â and Â George Â Peabody, Â and Â sister, Â Joan, Â who Â were Â smiling.

As Â he Â stepped Â onto Â Memory Â Lane, Â Carl Â saw Â the Â Botsford Â Farm Â in Â Vergennes Â where Â he, Â Joan, Â Jim Â and Â little Â brother Â Don Â grew Â up. Â And Â there Â was Â Vergennes Â High Â School Â where Â Carl Â was Â the Â valedictorian Â of Â the Â class Â of Â 1956. Â Moving Â along Â to Â UVM, Â he Â remembered Â he Â had Â gradu-Â ated Â as Â a Â Distinguished Â Military Â Student. Â He Â also Â met Â his Â future Â wife, Â Peggy Â Jean Â Link. AHHH Â â€” Â There Â was Â Fort Â Lee, Â VA, Â where Â he Â had Â spent Â his Â 2 Â years Â of Â Army Â Active Â Duty. Â What Â jokes Â when Â he Â had Â put Â a Â double Â bed Â mattress Â on Â his Â Plymouth Â Convertible Â to Â trans-Â port Â it Â across Â to Â his Â new Â apartment. Â Then Â it Â was Â back Â home Â to Â Vermont Â with Â a Â wife Â in Â 1962. Â Oh Â yes. Â There Â was Â Proctor Â Hall Â at Â Middlebury Â College Â where Â he Â was Â the Â store Â manager Â for Â 30 Â years. Â What Â a Â superb Â team Â he Â worked Â with Â and Â he Â still Â felt Â
loyalty Â to Â the Â College. On Â Court Â St. Â he Â passed Â his Â apart-Â ment Â house. Â How Â many Â hours Â had Â he Â spent Â on Â that Â old Â building! Â Carl Â laughed Â as Â he Â fondly Â remembered Â his Â various Â tenants. Â He Â was Â a Â kind Â and Â generous Â man Â with Â his Â time, Â talent Â and Â money. On Â down Â the Â road Â to Â East Â Middlebury Â to Â the Â red Â ranch Â house Â he Â lived Â in Â for Â 49 Â years. Â Before Â his Â eyes Â it Â transformed Â from Â a Â basic Â ranch Â to Â a Â house Â with Â an Â in-Âground Â swimming Â pool, Â a Â second Â garage, Â a Â spa Â room Â and Â a Â greenhouse. Â Carl Â smiled Â with Â pleasure Â as Â he Â remem-Â bered Â his Â projects Â on Â the Â house Â â€” Â top Â to Â bottom Â and Â end Â to Â end. Â Inside Â he Â did Â equal Â magic Â and Â the Â decora-Â tions Â included Â his Â paintings, Â chess-Â board Â and Â forged Â ashtrays. Â The Â house Â also Â contained Â all Â the Â things Â he Â couldnâ€™t Â throw Â away Â because Â he Â â€œmight Â need Â themâ€? Â for Â a Â future Â project. Just Â then Â the Â door Â opened Â and Â his Â kids, Â Kathy Â and Â Steve, Â ran Â out. Â Carl Â felt Â some Â disappointment Â that Â he Â would Â no Â longer Â be Â an Â active Â part Â of Â the Â family Â life. Â Kathyâ€™s Â husband, Â David, Â and Â grandchildren Â Dana Â and Â Kellen Â had Â added Â good Â times Â and Â wonderful Â laughter.

â€œTo live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.â€? Twenty years have passed since Rosalind Baker Young, â€œRoz,â€? left us and we have learned there is such truth in the quote that lay across her grave. Â We have lived almost half our lives without her, but she has walked with us through everyday trials and tribulations, successes and failures, marriage celebrations and the arrival of her grandchildren. She lives in our hearts and she lives on in the beautiful grandchildren who inherited her sense of fun, quirkiness and compassion for all. We laugh and love when we see it. Â She and Dad would be so happy to know we have stuck together, grown together and continue to come back â€œhomeâ€? to Middlebury together. Thanks to all who have supported us in her absence along the way. If you knew Roz, please share in honoring her memory by doing what she loved most... grab a coffee, head to your best friendâ€™s house and talk for hours. If your best friend happens to be your neighbor, all the better. Be silly and enjoy life to its fullest just as she did. Â Love, Barry, Brad and Rhonda

VERGENNES Â â€” Â The Â member-Â ship Â of Â the Â Vergennes Â Congregational Â Church, Â United Â Church Â of Â Christ, Â recently Â let Â it Â be Â known Â that Â their Â worship Â community Â was Â a Â safe Â place Â for Â everyone Â regardless Â of Â their Â sexual Â orientation, Â socio-Â economic Â status, Â mental Â disabilities Â or Â other Â personal Â attributes Â that Â have Â been Â scrutinized Â in Â other Â traditional Â churches. The Â Little Â City Â congregation Â voted Â overwhelmingly Â on Â Sunday, Â Sept. Â 22, Â to Â become Â an Â â€œOpen Â and Â $IÂżUPLQJÂ´SODFHRIZRUVKLS The Â Rev. Â Gary Â Lewis, Â pastor, Â said Â the Â formal Â declaration Â was Â not Â new Â for Â churches Â in Â Addison Â County;Íž Â the Â Congregational Â Church Â RI 0LGGOHEXU\ KDV EHHQ RIÂżFLDOO\ Âł2SHQDQG$IÂżUPLQJÂ´VLQFH â€œWeâ€™re Â behind Â the Â curve Â as Â far Â as Â our Â denomination,â€? Â Lewis Â said. Â â€œWe Â wanted Â to Â declare Â where Â we Â were Â so Â people Â would Â know. â€œThatâ€™s Â the Â general Â direction Â the Â membership Â was Â going,â€? Â he Â added. Â â€œUntil Â we Â voted Â for Â it, Â we Â couldnâ€™t Â claim Â it.â€? The Â formal Â resolution Â that Â passed Â by Â a Â nearly Â unanimous Â vote Â read Â as Â follows:
â€œWe Â believe Â that Â all Â people Â are Â created Â in Â Godâ€™s Â image Â and Â thus Â are Â Â blessed Â and Â loved Â equally Â by Â God. Â We Â honor Â the Â worth Â and Â dignity Â of Â Â all Â people.

The Â church Â community Â seeks Â to Â be Â a Â place Â of Â sanctuary, Â healing, Â inclu-Â sion, Â challenge, Â and Â compassion.â€? Lewis Â explained Â that Â formulating Â and Â voting Â on Â the Â resolution Â was Â a Â two-Âyear Â process. Â It Â was Â initiated Â by Â a Â member Â of Â church Â writing Â a Â letter Â to Â Lewis Â in Â which Â she Â was Â reacting Â to Â an Â incident Â where Â a Â lesbian Â friend Â felt Â alienated Â in Â her Â church. Â Lewis Â shared Â the Â issue Â with Â the Â Vergennes Â Congregational Â Church Â deacons, Â who Â work Â with Â the Â pastor Â on Â the Â spiritual Â life Â of Â the Â church. After Â talking Â with Â the Â parishioner, Â the Â deacons Â appointed Â a Â committee Â
of Â eight Â people Â of Â various Â ages Â to Â OHDGWKHSURFHVVRIÂżJXULQJRXWKRZ their Â church Â would Â react Â in Â such Â cases. Â The Â process Â included Â discussions Â within Â the Â church Â about Â becom-Â LQJ RIÂżFLDOO\ ÂłRSHQ DQG DIÂżUPLQJÂ´ The Â committee Â invited Â people Â from Â churches Â who Â had Â voted Â on Â similar Â resolutions Â â€” Â in Â favor Â and Â opposed Â â€” Â to Â speak Â with Â the Â membership. Â They Â invited Â churches Â that Â had Â gay Â and Â lesbian Â people Â to Â share Â their Â experiences, Â and Â welcomed Â parents Â of Â a Â gay Â son Â to Â speak. â€œTheir Â gift Â to Â us Â was Â coming Â and Â sharing Â with Â us,â€? Â Lewis Â said. The Â study Â committee Â met Â and Â recommended Â that Â the Â deacons Â bring Â it Â for Â a Â vote Â by Â the Â whole Â church, Â which Â has Â an Â average Â weekly Â atten-Â dance Â of Â around Â 100. â€œThis Â is Â not Â a Â big Â change Â in Â the Â 24 Â years Â Iâ€™ve Â been Â here,â€?

Ferrisburgh (Continued Â from Â Page Â 1A) tative Â suggested Â a Â $3,000 Â feasibility Â VWXG\DVDÂżUVWVWHS7DWORFNVDLGEXW the Â board Â was Â leaning Â toward Â do-Â ing Â some Â cheaper Â homework Â before Â spending Â that Â money Â â€” Â checking Â out Â how Â such Â systems Â are Â working Â for Â other Â schools Â that Â have Â installed Â them. Â â€œMaybe Â even Â before Â that Â a Â low-Â cost Â step Â would Â be Â (looking Â into) Â what Â other Â schools Â are Â doing Â right Â now,â€? Â he Â said. If Â that Â research Â went Â well, Â then Â a Â study Â would Â make Â sense, Â Tatlock Â said. Â â€œA Â feasibility Â study Â would Â tell Â us Â what Â kind Â of Â fuel Â would Â be Â best Â and Â tell Â us Â what Â boiler Â size Â (we Â need),â€? Â he Â said. &DQQRQVDLGRIÂżFLDOVDWKHUVHPL-Â nar Â recommended Â wood Â pellets Â be-Â cause Â of Â ease Â of Â handling Â and Â lower Â
WomenSafe water Â content, Â which Â means Â greater Â HIÂżFLHQF\ But Â on Â Oct. Â 8 Â Renewable Â Energy Â said Â they Â had Â a Â wood Â chip Â supplier Â that Â could Â guarantee Â a Â relatively Â low Â water Â content, Â and Â no Â one Â disputes Â the Â chips Â are Â cheaper, Â while Â pellets Â DUH PRUH HIÂżFLHQW DOWKRXJK WKHLU prices Â also Â tend Â to Â be Â more Â volatile. Â â€œThey Â were Â suggesting Â the Â chips,â€? Â Cannon Â said. Â Tatlock Â said Â a Â decision Â would Â not Â be Â made Â quickly. Â â€œThere Â are Â a Â lot Â of Â variables,â€? Â he Â said, Â adding Â oil Â price Â projections Â are Â also Â uncertain. Â 7KH ÂżYHPHPEHU ERDUG ZRXOG also Â like Â to Â hear Â from Â residents Â on Â the Â proposal. Â Â â€œThe Â tricky Â part Â is Â seeing Â what Â the Â public Â thinks Â about Â it,â€? Â Tatlock Â said. If Â the Â board Â does Â opt Â for Â a Â bio-Â
mass Â boiler Â such Â as Â proposed Â by Â the Â %HQQLQJWRQ ÂżUP LW FRXOG EH VLWHG directly Â behind Â the Â schoolâ€™s Â gymna-Â sium/cafeteria Â wing Â in Â a Â freestanding Â building. FCS Â Principal Â JoAnn Â Taft-ÂBlakely Â said Â the Â boiler Â would Â be Â on Â a Â plat-Â form Â with Â a Â window Â to Â allow Â stu-Â dents Â to Â observe Â its Â operation. Â â€œYou Â know Â how Â we Â like Â to Â make Â things Â educational,â€? Â Taft-ÂBlakely Â said. Â â€œIt Â would Â be Â another Â opportu-Â nity Â for Â education Â and Â training Â for Â the Â kids.â€? If Â the Â board Â does Â decide Â to Â pro-Â ceed, Â a Â biomass Â boiler Â could Â be Â there Â by Â as Â early Â as Â the Â 2014-Â2015 Â school Â year, Â Tatlock Â said, Â even Â with Â what Â he Â called Â a Â lot Â of Â research Â to Â do. Â Â â€œOnce Â we Â make Â the Â decision, Â I Â donâ€™t Â think Â the Â time Â line Â would Â be Â that Â long Â to Â get Â it Â done,â€? Â he Â said.
(Continued Â from Â Page Â 1A) â€œThis Â will Â allow Â us Â to Â be Â able Â to Â keep Â the Â staff Â to Â be Â able Â to Â provide Â the Â services Â people Â have Â come Â to Â depend Â on Â to Â help Â them Â through Â traumatic Â times Â in Â their Â lives.â€? The Â grant Â has Â allowed Â WomenSafe Â to Â maintain Â a Â staff Â of Â eight Â full-Âtime Â workers, Â one Â of Â whom Â is Â a Â transition-Â al Â housing Â coordinator Â who Â works Â with Â victims Â accessing Â services Â under Â the Â grant. Â Once Â temporary Â housing Â (usually Â an Â apartment) Â is Â located Â for Â the Â victim, Â the Â grant Â resources Â can Â be Â tapped Â to Â help Â pay Â for Â rent, Â transpor-Â tation, Â counseling Â and Â other Â services Â XQWLOWKHFOLHQWLVÂżQDQFLDOO\DQGHPR-Â tionally Â stable Â enough Â to Â become Â in-Â dependent.

Â It Â has Â also Â served Â as Â an Â eye-Âopener Â for Â the Â community. â€œIt Â has Â educated Â landlords Â on Â do-Â mestic Â violence Â and Â safety Â concerns,â€? Â Smith Â said. It Â has Â also Â helped Â victims Â and Â their Â children Â learn Â to Â become Â independent Â following Â often-Âtraumatic Â circum-Â stances. â€œMost Â of Â the Â women Â (who Â have Â gone Â through Â the Â program) Â have Â done Â well Â and Â have Â been Â able Â to Â get Â along Â on Â their Â own,â€? Â Smith Â said. Steve Â Sac, Â director Â of Â property Â man-Â agement Â for Â ACCT, Â said Â the Â program Â has Â worked Â well. â€œItâ€™s Â been Â a Â great Â collaboration,â€? Â he Â
said. Â â€œWe Â have Â housed Â (WomenSafe Â clients) Â throughout Â the Â county Â in Â our Â housing. Â Itâ€™s Â so Â needed.â€?

Â Thatâ€™s Â because Â as Â the Â Addison Â Inde-Â pendent Â went Â to Â press Â on Â Wednesday, Â lawmakers Â had Â yet Â to Â resolve Â a Â federal Â budget/debt Â ceiling Â impasse Â that Â has Â resulted Â in Â a Â partial Â government Â shut-Â down.

Â Racine Â said. Vermont Â drew Â down Â as Â much Â fed-Â

Cancer proof your kitchen By Â NANCY Â ELIZABETH Â SHAW With Â a Â cancer Â diagnosis, Â you Â want Â to Â take Â ev-Â ery Â possible Â precaution Â to Â eliminate Â the Â potential Â causes Â of Â cancer Â from Â your Â environment: Â heavy Â metals, Â chemicals Â and Â plastics. Â In Â your Â kitchen, Â you Â have Â a Â great Â opportunity Â to Â eliminate Â adding Â anything Â cancer-Âpromoting Â into Â your Â food. Â 1. Â Throw Â away Â your Â aluminum Â and Â non-Âstick Â cookware.

Â Cooking Â in Â stainless Â steel, Â cast Â iron, Â ceramic Â or Â JODVVLVEHQHÂżFLDOWRHYHU\RQHLQ\RXUKRPHIURP the Â little Â ones Â to Â your Â cancer Â patient. Â Use Â parch-Â ment Â paper Â in Â the Â oven Â or Â wax Â paper Â in Â the Â fridge Â between Â food Â and Â foil. 2. Â Reconsider Â fat. The Â tide Â is Â changing Â on Â fats. Â The Â latest Â research Â shows Â good Â natural Â fats Â (pasture-Âraised Â butter, Â ex-Â tra Â virgin Â olive Â oil, Â coconut Â oil), Â used Â cold Â or Â at Â medium Â (not Â hot) Â temperatures, Â are Â good Â for Â you Â â€” Â much Â better Â than Â using Â non-Âstick Â cookware Â with Â processed Â fats Â like Â PAM, Â Crisco Â or Â margarine. 7HVW\RXUZDWHUÂ˛WKHQÂżOWHU ,I\RXXVHWRZQZDWHULWKDVFKORULQHIRUSXULÂżFD-Â WLRQ6RPHWRZQVDGGĂ€XRULGHWRR6RPHUHVHDUFK KDV UDLVHG TXHVWLRQV DERXW FKORULQH DQG Ă€XRULGH and Â cancer, Â so Â why Â not Â eliminate Â them Â from Â your Â food Â and Â drinking Â water.

So Â where Â does Â this Â leave Â the Â audi-Â ence? Â Fascinated, Â certainly, Â by Â the Â vi-Â sual Â splendor Â of Â watching Â earth Â below Â and Â the Â chaos Â of Â space Â at Â hand. Â Space, Â we Â learn, Â is Â full Â of Â the Â debris Â created Â by Â HDUWKOLQJVÂś\HDUVRIH[SORUDWLRQ)UDJ-Â ments Â and Â wreckage Â roar Â in Â permanent Â orbit Â around Â the Â earth Â in Â serious Â threat Â WRHDUWKO\H[SORUHUV6SDFHWUDVKLVHY-Â erlasting. Â Ryan Â (Sandra Â Bullock) Â and Â Matt Â Kowalski Â (George Â Clooney) Â have Â been Â dropped Â into Â this Â dazzling Â emptiness Â by Â an Â accident Â on Â their Â routine Â space Â mission. Â The Â suspense Â builds Â for Â the Â two Â â€” Â and Â for Â us Â â€” Â as Â we Â watch Â them Â Ă€RDW KHOSOHVVO\ ZKLOH WU\LQJ WR ÂżJXUH out Â how Â they Â might Â survive. Â Bullock Â deserves Â a Â salute Â for Â mastering Â both Â weightlessness Â and Â the Â labored Â breath-Â ing Â that, Â along Â with Â man-Âmade Â melo-Â dramatic Â music, Â is Â the Â only Â sound Â in Â the Â silence Â of Â CuarĂłnâ€™s Â space. 7KHUHLVDELWRIJHQWOHĂ€LUWLQJZKLOH Matt Â tries Â to Â steady Â Ryanâ€™s Â nerves Â and Â a Â bit Â of Â audience Â smirking Â when, Â back Â on Â board, Â Ryan Â tries Â to Â control Â the Â ship Â by Â reading Â the Â instruction Â manual. Â
Though Â Bullock Â coughs, Â breathes Â and Â moves Â with Â ap-Â pealing Â grace, Â the Â slim Â story Â that Â surrounds Â her Â is Â entirely Â secondary Â to Â the Â computerized Â visuals. Â The Â story Â itself Â is Â implausible, Â impos-Â sible Â and Â fairly Â unappealing. Â The Â liber-Â ties Â taken Â by Â the Â CuarĂłns Â â€” Â father Â and Â son Â â€” Â violate Â the Â possible Â repeatedly Â in Â ways Â that Â border Â on Â being Â silly. We Â need Â that Â link Â to Â the Â possible Â in Â order Â to Â enjoy Â the Â movie. Â Yes, Â we Â think, Â they Â could Â be Â cut Â loose. Â While Â we Â watch Â RXU VXGGHQO\ LUUHOHYDQW KHURHV Ă€RDW-Â ing Â out Â there, Â we Â have Â plenty Â of Â time Â to Â wonder Â what Â it Â would Â feel Â like Â to Â be Â alone, Â untethered Â from Â the Â safety Â of Â the Â mother Â ship Â in Â a Â void Â without Â limits, Â boundaries, Â or Â help Â of Â any Â kind. Â There Â is Â no Â 911 Â helpline Â in Â space, Â no Â family, Â no Â friend. Â Perhaps Â that Â is Â Alfonso Â Cu-Â arĂłnâ€™s Â gift Â to Â the Â audience. Â He Â has Â cap-Â Ăłnâ€™s Â gift Â to Â the Â audience. Â He Â has Â cap-Â nâ€™s Â gift Â to Â the Â audience. Â He Â has Â cap-Â tured Â the Â essence Â of Â absolute Â solitude.

started Â coming Â to Â Community Â Lunch Â DQG6XSSHUWRR:KHQ,ÂżUVWVDZWKH VLJQ,ÂżJXUHGLWZRXOGEHDOOROGWLP-Â ers, Â but Â now Â I Â know Â that Â itâ€™s Â different. Â And Â then Â I Â learned Â it Â was Â for Â low-Â income Â people, Â too. Â And Â I Â learned Â it Â was Â for Â anyone. Â Itâ€™s Â been Â real Â good Â for Â me.â€? Â He Â nodded Â and Â said Â again, Â â€œItâ€™s Â been Â real Â good Â for Â me.â€? Â I Â nodded Â as Â well Â and Â thanked Â him Â for Â talking Â with Â me. Â I Â got Â up Â from Â my Â seat, Â my Â chest Â ÂżOOHG ZLWK ERWK KDSSLQHVV DQG VDG-Â ness. Â Wesâ€™s Â story, Â like Â so Â many Â of Â the Â individuals Â at Â lunch, Â is Â not Â free Â from Â pain Â and Â discouragement, Â but Â he, Â too, Â LV ÂżQGLQJ D ZD\ IRUZDUG +H WRR is Â carving Â out Â a Â life Â for Â himself. Â For Â Wes, Â Community Â Lunch Â and Â Supper Â and Â his Â church Â are Â important Â parts Â of Â that Â life Â he Â is Â building. A Â VOLUNTEERâ€™S Â TRANSFORMATION The Â community Â meals Â are Â places Â of Â acceptance Â and Â safety. Â No Â judgment, Â no Â rejection, Â no Â dismissal, Â no Â derision. Â At Â lunch Â and Â supper Â the Â leaders Â and Â volunteers Â of Â the Â Charter Â House Â Coali-Â tion Â have Â created Â a Â culture Â of Â giving Â freely Â and Â without Â judgment. Â At Â the Â beginning Â of Â the Â summer, Â I Â sometimes Â found Â myself Â frustrated Â and Â critical Â when Â someone Â pushed Â to Â the Â front Â of Â the Â line Â or Â piled Â their Â plate Â KLJK ZLWK FRRNLHV RU GHPDQGHG ÂżYH takeouts Â from Â me. Â I Â judged Â people Â with Â body Â odor Â or Â those Â reeling Â from Â drugs. Â But Â with Â time Â and Â from Â watch-Â ing Â the Â other Â volunteers, Â I Â saw Â that Â my Â frustration Â and Â disparagement Â were Â small-Âminded. Â We Â all Â carry Â pain Â with Â us, Â some Â more Â than Â others, Â and Â I Â need Â to Â do Â what Â I Â can Â to Â lessen Â that Â pain. Â I Â need Â to Â be Â the Â smiling Â face Â and Â the Â voice Â that Â says, Â â€œYes, Â of Â course Â I Â can Â do Â that Â for Â youâ€? Â when Â everyone Â else Â said Â no Â and Â slammed Â the Â door. As Â I Â move Â forward, Â I Â hope Â to Â bring Â this Â awareness Â and Â compassion Â with Â me. Â As Â I Â move Â forward, Â I Â will Â remember Â how Â the Â community Â of Â people Â at Â lunch Â and Â supper Â opened Â its Â arms Â and Â hearts Â to Â me Â â€” Â freely Â and Â graciously. Â They Â welcomed Â me Â to Â their Â lives Â and Â shared Â their Â stories Â with Â me. Â I Â will Â remember Â their Â faces Â and Â their Â voices. Â They Â have Â taught Â me Â so Â much. I Â want Â to Â thank Â them, Â and Â I Â want Â to Â invite Â you Â to Â join Â us Â at Â Community Â Lunch Â or Â Supper Â one Â day. Â The Â door Â is Â open, Â the Â welcome Â is Â warm Â and Â there Â are Â always Â stories Â to Â share. Â The Â Middlebury Â Community Â Lunches Â take Â place Â Mondays Â at Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â Episcopal Â Church Â on Â the Â green, Â and Â Tuesdays-ÂThursdays Â at Â the Â Charter Â House, Â from Â 11:30 Â a.m.-Â 12:15 Â p.m. Â The Â Community Â Suppers Â are Â Fridays, Â 5-Â6:15 Â p.m. Â at Â the Â Con-Â gregational Â Church Â Fellowship Â Hall.
