Transitional apartments offered in Vergennes Shelter  helps  homeless   become  independent By  JOHN  FLOWERS VERGENNES   —   Robyn   Yoder   had  grown  weary  of  living  in  a  trou-­ bled   home   and   decided   earlier   this   year  that  it  was  time  for  a  change. “I   moved   away   from   my   family   of   struggling   addicts.   I   needed   to   cleanse  my  life  from  that,�  she  said   on  Thursday. So   Yoder,   24,   and   her   boyfriend,   Josh  Gordon,  26,  moved  from  south-­ ern   Vermont   to   the   Vergennes   area,   where  Gordon  was  raised. It  was  rough  in  the  beginning.  As   they   looked   for   work,   they   had   to   spend  some  time  at  the  John  W.  Gra-­ ham  Emergency  Shelter  on  Monkton   Road   and   at   local   hotels.   But   they   eventually   landed   jobs   and   recently   got  what  they  consider  to  be  a  huge   break  in  planning  the  next  chapter  of   their  lives  together:  An  apartment  of   their  own  in  a  new  transitional  hous-­ ing   project   at   74   Green   St.   in   Ver-­ gennes.

Editorial

Needed:  A  return  to  reason As  the  nation  careens  toward  default  on  its  national  debt,  and  as  Tea  Party   Republicans   continue   their   reckless   dismissal   of   those   consequences,   one   wonders  what  happens  to  a  political  party  that  rejects  rational  argument  and   embraces  a  faith-­based  approach  to  its  politics.   When  such  faith  fails,  will  the  voters  who  embraced  those  tactics  fall  on   their  sword  or  slowly  turn  toward  the  politics  of  reason? We  are  not,  of  course,  talking  about  religion.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  talking  about  the  ir-­ rational  politics  of  Tea  Party  Republicans  and  their  insistence  that  sweeping   spending  cuts  for  all  aspects  of  government  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  except  the  military  and  de-­ fense  spending  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  are  good  for  the  economy.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  talking  about  their  insis-­ tence  that  defaulting  on  the  nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  debt  would  not  harm  the  economy.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   talking  about  their  insistence  that  health  care  reform  is  misguided,  and  that  it   is  not  governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  business  to  worry  about  the  poor,  the  sick  and  the  unin-­ sured.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  talking  about  a  party  that  rejects  the  science  of  climate  change   and   advocates   for   unlimited   drilling.  Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   talking   about   the   Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   insistence  that  the  widening  gap  in  income  between  the  nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  wealthiest   few  and  the  vast  majority  of  Americans  is  OK  and  should  not  be  addressed  by   changes  in  policy.  Let  the  market  work  it  out,  they  maintain,  as  if  the  market   GLGQRWFUHDWHWKHLQHTXLW\LQWKHÂżUVWSODFH We  are  talking  the  GOP  indoctrinating  followers  with  a  mindset  that  their   policies   will   prevail   only   if   the   faithful   believe   and   press   ahead   with   their   doctrine  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  despite  facts  to  the  contrary. It  is  clear  by  now  that  the  party  has  lost  control  of  its  mainstream  message   and  direction  to  a  vocal  minority.  The  question  is  whether  it  can  regain  control   in  time  to  avoid  serious  harm  to  the  country. We  still  have  hope  that  the  nation  will  avoid  default  and,  at  the  worst,  adopt   a  six-­week  delay.

A  tonic  for  bullying?  Respect The  death  of  Olivia  Scott,  a  16-­year-­old  student  at  Mount  Abraham  Union   High  School,  has  sent  shock  waves  throughout  the  community.  Her  suicide   is  particularly  troubling  because  its  cause  is  likely  connected  to  cyber  bul-­ lying  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  which  boils  down  to  hateful  speech  and  indiscriminate  meanness   promulgated  by  a  culture  of  online  anonymity.   After  grief,  better  education  at  the  school  and  among  the  community  is  the   appropriate,  if  inadequate,  tonic.  It  will  be  inadequate  because  we  can  never   eradicate  all  aspects  of  meanness,  of  indiscriminate  bullying.  Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  online   ZRUOGRQO\PDNHVLWPRUHDQRQ\PRXVDQGPRUHGLIÂżFXOWWRGHWHFW AN  OLD  RADIATOR  is  ready  to  work  its  magic  as  frosty  nights  begin  to  take  hold  across  the  county. To   that   end,   activities   that   bring   students   together   in   social   settings   are   Independent  photo/Trent  Campbell enormously  important.  Joining  a  school  sport  team  is  one  of  the  most  suc-­ cessful  programs  because  it  creates  a  team  dynamic  that  is  supportive.  Aca-­ demic  options  like  math  club,  debate,  forensics,  art  and  many  other  activities   can  do  the  same.   One  apparent  reality  that  parents  and  other  students  should  grasp,  in  the   wake  of  this  tragedy,  is  that  being  home  and  online  in  the  sanctity  of  oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   room  is  not  always  the  safest  place  to  be.   One  can  hope  the  response  at  Mount  Abe  will  be  to  embrace  this  tragedy   as  a  wake-­up  call,  and  tackle  the  issue  with  openness,  frankness  and  a  full-­on   I  write  to  us  all  from  Elsipogtog   communities  here  in  their  goals  of   On  Oct.  1,  Treaty  Day  in  New   commitment  to  ensure  the  school  culture  is  respectful  and  supporting  of  all   First  Nation  in  New  Brunswick,   stopping  the  fracking  industry  in  its   Brunswick,  the  Elsipogtog  First   students.  Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  tall  order,  but  its  importance  cannot  be  overstated.

To  this  end,  the  coalition  operates   ity  at  the  Charter  House  across  from   ÂżYH GLVWLQFW SURJUDPV WKDW KRXVH the  church  on  Pleasant  Street.  From   45   individuals   a   year,   serve   21,000   November   through  April,   the   Char-­ meals   and   draw   on   a   network   of   ter  House  provides  a  home  for  up  to   more  than  750  volunteers.  With  this   ÂżYHIDPLOLHVRULQGLYLGXDOVDWDWLPH manpower,   the   coalition   performs   In  a  note  addressed  to  the  members   over   23,500   hours   of   service   every   of  the  coalition,  one  former  resident   conveyed  the  impact  of  the  Charter   year.   The   coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   programs   foster   relationships   between   people   from   all   corners   of   the   Middlebury   area,   while   satisfying   the   need   for   com-­ munity,   shelter   and   food.   Volunteer   Jeff   Rehbach   emphasized   the   com-­ munity   building   he   has   seen   in   ac-­ tion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  see  â&#x20AC;Ś  the  growth  of  commu-­ nity,   as   we   begin   to   understand   our   differences   as   well   as   our   common   humanity,â&#x20AC;?  he  said.   Another   volunteer   said   commu-­ nity   building   works   in   both   direc-­ tions:  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most  days  after  volunteering,   my  perspective  is  shifted  a  bit  more   away   from   myself   and   helps   me   to   be  more  open-­minded  to  people  who   think  differently.â&#x20AC;?

One  hundred  kilometers  away  in   Penobsquis,  the  fracking  industry   has  operated  unabated  for  almost   10  years.  The  air  stinks  and  people   report  daily  headaches,  dizziness,  as   well  as  increasing  rates  of  cancer.   When  I  visited  the  well  sites,  I  imme-­ diately  had  a  headache  and  felt  sick   from  the  chemicals  in  the  air. The  industry  and  government   claimed  that  each  well  would  create   dozens  of  jobs,  just  as  in  Addison   County  we  hear  the  same  argument   surrounding  the  pipeline.  In  Penobs-­ quis,  they  have  found  the  opposite  to   be  true.  Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  land  has  been  ru-­ ined  from  gas  wells  and  underground   piping.  Throughout  the  area,  66  fami-­ lies  lost  their  well  water,  and  some   houses  are  now  worthless  due  to   proximity  to  the  gas  wells  and  shift-­ ing  ground  which  caused  structural   problems.  This  is  what  is  happening   in  extraction  communities. Our  struggle  in  Addison  County   is  connected  to  those  in  Penobsquis.   All  of  the  gas  from  New  Brunswick   is  sold  to  the  United  States.  In  Ad-­ dison  County  we  stand  on  the  verge   of  deciding  about  a  project  that   would  increase  demand  for  Canadian   fracked  gas.  Middlebury  College,   too,  is  making  money  from  oil  and   gas  companies  like  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  or  perhaps   even  including  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  SWN.  These  are   companies  that  are  suppressing  the   voices  of  local  people,  and  attempt-­ ing  to  silence  their  experiences. People  at  the  points  of  extraction   DUHÂżJKWLQJKDUGDQGRXUVWUXJJOHVWR stop  the  expansion  of  fracked  gas  in-­ frastructure  in  Addison  County  lends  

strength  to  their  work.  For  those  of   us  who  have  yet  to  be  convinced  of   stopping  this  pipeline,  I  share  with   you  the  stories  of  people  much  like   ourselves  who  now  have  the  daily   and  generational  legacies  of  pollu-­ tion  that  are  destroying  their  liveli-­ hoods.  When  I  asked  what  message   they  had  to  send  to  us  working  in   Vermont,  Beth  Nixon  and  Heather   McCabe  of  Penobsquis  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop   them  (the  natural  gas  companies)   at  all  costs,  we  wish  they  had  never   come  here.â&#x20AC;?  Let  us  heed  this  call,   to  stop  the  gas  companies  at  all   costs,  resisting  side-­by-­side  with  the   Elsipogtog  First  Nation,  the  people   of  Penobsquis,  and  our  neighbors  in   Addison  County  to  protect  the  lands   and  the  waters  of  these  places  we   all  call  home.

Fish  &  Wildlife  Dept.  offers  safety  tips  to  bow  hunters VERMONT  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  The  Vermont  Fish   &   Wildlife   Department   is   remind-­ ing   hunters   that   handguns   may   not   be  used  to  take  game  while  archery   deer  hunting.  Following  the  Sports-­ man  Act  of  2013,  archery  deer  hunt-­ ers  in  Vermont  are  permitted  to  carry   a  pistol  or  revolver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This   provision   was   passed   to   create  more  consistency  with  rights   currently   afforded   to   hikers,   wild-­ life   watchers   and   others,â&#x20AC;?   said   Col.   David   LeCours,   head   of   law   en-­

forcement   for   the   Vermont   Fish   &   Wildlife   Department.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;However,   it   was   not   intended   to   supplement   a   bow   and   arrow   for   legally   taking   other   game   during   the   archery   sea-­ son.  Handguns  may  not  be  used  for   taking  deer,  bear  or  any  other  game   animal   while   archery   deer   hunting,   including  downed  deer.â&#x20AC;? Bowhunters   are   also   reminded   to   practice   treestand   safety.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   see   several  hunters  every  year  who  seri-­ ously  injure  themselves  while  using  

treestands,â&#x20AC;?   said   LeCours.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;These   injuries   can   usually   be   avoided   by   following  a  few  simple  precautions.â&#x20AC;? Hunters   should   use   a   safety   har-­ ness   in   a   treestand,   even   while   climbing.   They   should   also   not   go   too   high.   Staying   lower   in   a   tree   not   only   improves   safety,   but   also   increases   the   size   of   the   vital   zone   exposed   on   a   deer.   And   hunters   should  choose  large,  stable  trees  and   XVHVWDQGVFHUWLÂżHGE\WKH7UHHVWDQG Manufacturers  Association.

Sailor’s  delight ON   OCT.   3   Cass   Tillman   of   Cornwall   captured   this   image   of   a   beautiful   evening   sky   over  Addison   County  at  the  intersection  of  Routes  53  and  7  in  Salisbury.

Making  healthy,  sustainable  food  choices Editor’s   note:   This   piece   was   con-­ tributed  by  Linda  Berlin,  University  of   Vermont   Extension   nutrition   special-­ ist. The   recommendations   provided   in   the  U.S.  Dietary  Guidelines  are  driven   primarily   by   criteria   to   achieve   opti-­ mal  human  health.  While  nutritionists,   dietitians  and  other  public  health  pro-­ fessionals  commonly  use  these  guide-­ lines   to   structure   their   advice,   you   probably   make   decisions   about   what   to   purchase   and   eat   based   on   many   other  important  criteria  such  as  taste,   price  and  habit. The   government   of   the   United   Kingdom   recently   produced   a   report   on   sustainable   food   consumption,   which   you   can   read   at   www.gov.uk/ government/publications/sustainable-­ consumption-­report-­follow-­up-­to-­the-­ green-­food-­project.   The   focus   is   on   principles  of  a  healthy  and  sustainable   diet.

While  the  U.K.’s  health  components   vary  little  from  the  U.S.  recommenda-­ tions,   it   is   refreshing   to   see   the   two   sets   of   issues   integrated   and   without   contradictions.   The   U.K.   recommen-­ dations   are   being   circulated   for   peer   UHYLHZVRKDYHQRW\HWEHHQ¿QDOL]HG However,  it  is  worth  taking  a  look. The  eight  principles  of  a  healthy  and   sustainable  diet  in  the  U.K.  report  are: 1.  Eat   a   varied   balanced   diet   to   maintain  a  healthy  body  weight. 2.  Eat   more   plant-­based   foods   in-­ FOXGLQJ DW OHDVW ¿YH SRUWLRQV RI IUXLW and  vegetables  per  day. 3.  Value  your  food.  Ask  about  where   it  comes  from  and  how  it  is  produced.   Don’t  waste  it. 4.  Moderate   your   meat   consump-­ tion,  and  enjoy  more  peas,  beans,  nuts   and  others  sources  of  protein. &KRRVH ¿VK VRXUFHG IURP VXV-­ tainable   stocks.   Seasonality   and   cap-­ ture  methods  are  important  here,  too.

The  principles  that  stand  out  as  be-­ ing   the   most   different   from   the   U.S.   Dietary  Guidelines,  which  were  devel-­ oped  by  the  U.S.  Department  of  Agri-­ culture  and  the  Department  of  Health   and  Human  Services,  are  numbers  3,   5  and  7.  The  latter  two  obviously  are   focused   on   sustainability   and   are   un-­ OLNHO\WRVLJQL¿FDQWO\DOWHUQXWULHQWLQ-­ take.  The  rationale  for  recommending   tap  water  is  that  it  is  the  cheapest  and   most  environmentally  friendly  way  to   get   hydrated   since   it   reduces   bottled   water.   It   also   implies   a   reduction   in   sugary  drinks. Number   3   is   one   of   my   favor-­ ite   principles,   despite   its   vagueness.   Why?  Because  it  suggests  that  all  eat-­ ers  should  be  critical  thinkers  and  ap-­ ply  their  personal  values  to  their  food   choices. Certainly   this   isn’t   simple   since   it   not  only  requires  you  to  identify  your   own   values   but   also   determine   how   they   apply   to   foods   available   in   the   marketplace   or   that   you   produce   at   home.   Examples   of   how   your   values   might   translate   into   food   choices   in-­ clude  ways  livestock  are  treated,  inter-­ est  in  supporting  the  local  or  regional   economy  or  reducing  the  use  of  syn-­ thetic  pesticides. Food  labels  may  not  provide  all  of   the   information   you   need.   Nonethe-­ less,  I  think  it  is  worth  giving  it  a  try. Write  down  the  values  you  hold  that   apply  to  food.  Then  consider  how  well   matched   they   are   to   your   purchasing   and  consumption  practices.  There  may   be   some   very   good   reasons   that   it   is   hard   to   act   on   your   values,   but   it’s   a   good  way  to  build  your  self-­awareness   and  create  goals  for  the  future.

Planned wedding still had some surprises Holley and Neil share their story Holley  Burfoot-­Rochford  and  Neil  Benjamin   were   married   in   Holley’s   hometown,   East   Middlebury,  at  the  Waybury  Inn  this  past  Aug.   10. After   graduating   from   Northeastern   University,  Holley  lived  in  California,  Oregon   and   Indiana,   where   she   received   her   master’s   degree  in  social  work.  She  made  her  way  back  to   the  East  Coast,  taking  a  job  at  Williams  College   as  the  assistant  director  of  the  children’s  center. Neil   grew   up   in   Niskayuna,   N.Y.,   earned   a   bachelor’s   degree   in   journalism   at   SUNY   Plattsburgh,  and  worked  in  Montreal  as  a  writer   for  a  popular  magazine.  A  guitarist  and  avid  fan   of   Phish   and   the   Grateful   Dead,   he   also   loves   writing   and   sports.   By   the   time   May   of   2012   rolled   around,   Neil   was   working   as   the   sports   editor  for  the  North  Adams  Transcript. On  May  17,  2010,  Holley  and  Neil  met  and   HOLLEY  BURFOOT-­ROCHFORD  and  Neil  Benjamin  seal  the  deal  with  a  kiss  at  the  end   the  rest,  as  they  say,  is  history.  The  Benjamins   of  the  ceremony  on  their  wedding  day,  Aug.  10,  2013.

during  the  process.  She  knew. On   our   way   back   to   Syracuse,   with   Holley   knowing  full  well  that  I  had  the  ring,  she  was   giddy,  pondering  when  I’d  pop  the  question.   Holley:  We  stopped  at  a  rest  area. Neil:  Because  I’m  not  one  who  can  deal  with   keeping   a   secret   or   surprise,   I   pulled   over   at   a   rest   area   on   Interstate   90   under   the   guise   of   being  hungry.  As  we  go  out  of  the  car  I  walked   over  to  her  side,  took  her  hand,  got  on  one  knee,   looked  her  in  the  eyes  and  asked  her  to  marry   me.  For  some  strange  reason,  she  said  YES! What   was   the   wedding   planning   process   like?   How   much   time   did   you   spend   planning  it?  Any  useful  resources  you  want   to  mention? Holley:  Nine  months,  which  was  not  a  lot  of   time  to  plan,  but  I  wouldn’t  have  wanted  more   time,  as  it  was  an  extremely  stressful  process.   Being   out   of   state   provided   an   additional   challenge   but   frequent   trips   and   having   my   parents  and  friends  there  to  help  made  it  all  fall   into  place. The  Knot  Wedding  planner  app  was  great. Did   you   hire   a   professional   planner,   turn   to  a  family  member  or  friend  for  support? Holley:  No  planner.  We  got  lots  of  family  and   friend  support,  but  I  ended  up  voluntarily  taking   on  much  of  the  work.  Having  my  maid  of  honor   in  D.C.  and  other  bridesmaids  in  New  York  and   Vermont  made  it  challenging,  too. Do   you   like   things   planned   to   the   tiny   detail,   or   did   you   just   focus   on   the   broad   things  that  you  cared  about? (See  Planning,  Page  24)

Planning (Continued  from  Page  23) Holley:   Planning   was   easy   and   fun,   but   I   would  not  do  it  again.  My  planning  got  pretty   detailed. You  canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  plan  every  detail.  Focusing  on  the   key  pieces  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  small  and  large  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  having   lists   and   spaces   to   spread   out   your   things   helps. Neil:  Since  the  wedding  itself  meant  more  to   Holley  (the  symbolism  of  us  getting  married  is   what   mattered   to   me,   not   the   ceremony   and   such)  my  focus  was  all  on  the  music  selection.   To  say  I  am  an  obsessive  Phish  and  Grateful   Dead  fan,  I  handpicked  the  cocktail  hour  and   GLQQHUPXVLFDVZHOODVWKHÂżQDOVRQJRIWKH night.   If   you   listen   to   Phish,   you   understand   ZK\ , FKRVH Âł7ZHH]HU 5HSULVH´ DV WKH ÂżQDO song  of  the  night. I  spent  hours  upon  hours  coming  up  with  a   â&#x20AC;&#x153;setlistâ&#x20AC;?  of  sorts,  in  the  Phish/Dead  vein,  taking   songs  that  I  love,  songs  that  have  meaning  to   our   relationship   and   songs   my   friends   love   DQGSLHFLQJLWWRJHWKHUDQGDOORZLQJLWWRĂ&#x20AC;RZ like  a  Phish  or  Grateful  Dead  concert  would.   This  was  the  biggest  part  I  played  in  planning   the   day.   Holley   did   the   rest,   and   it   couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   have   been   any   better.   My   dream   woman   got   her   dream   day   because   of   the   tireless   effort   she  put  forth. How  did  the  day-­of  meet  or  exceed  your   expectations?   Holley:  A  week  at  a  lake  house  in  Vermont   to   plan   with   my   maid   of   honor   and   friends,   EULGHVPDLGVGHÂżQLWHO\KHOSHG7KHUHZHUHORWV of   projects,   some   I   bailed   on   but   most   were   accomplished.

I  felt  mildly  organized,  however,  having  my   wedding  party  with  me  all  day  made  for  some   interesting  pre-­wedding  shenanigans.  My  best   man   and   three   groomsmen   had   a   lot   of   fun.   Then,   out   of   nowhere,   I   realized   I   had   to   be   showered,  shaved,  dressed  and  ready  to  go  in

The   second   thing   was   to   make   sure   my   family  and  friends  were  enjoying  their  time  in   TXDLQW0LGGOHEXU\7KDWZDVQÂśWDWDOOGLIÂżFXOW and   I   have   been   told   by   almost   everyone   in   attendance  that  it  was  one  of  the  most  beautiful   weddings  they  have  attended.

Renewing vows is a great way to rekindle your love By  ALICIA  RANCILIO Associated  Press When   Letty   Abraham   of   Sylvan   Lake,   Mich.,  married  her  husband,  Mark,  almost  22   years  ago,  she  was  determined  not  to  make  a   fuss. It   was   her   second   marriage   and   she   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   want  to  go  overboard. Âł, KDG D ELJ ZHGGLQJ WKH ÂżUVW WLPH  0\ second  wedding  I  was  over  that,  and  I  wanted   it   more   small   and   intimate.   We   got   married   in   Las   Vegas.   We   had   family   and   friends  there  but  it  wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  a   really  big  deal,â&#x20AC;?  she  said. Still,   it   was   important   to   the   couple   to   make   their   union  special,  so  they  made   a   plan   early   on   to   renew   their  vows. Fast  forward  10  years,  and   they  were  saying  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  still  doâ&#x20AC;?   on   a   trip   to   Maui,   Hawaii.   At  that  ceremony,  Abraham   let   herself   cry.   She   and   her   husband  were  so  happy  with   their   second   wedding   to   each  other  that  they  decided  to  do  it  again  at   the  15-­year  mark  as  well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   probably   do   it   again   at   25,â&#x20AC;?   she   laughed. Recommitting   to   a   relationship   through   vow  renewals  is  becoming  more  popular,  said   Susan   Southerland,   president   of   Just   Marry!,   Inc.  wedding  planners  in  Orlando,  Fla. Âł,Q WKH ODVW WKUHH WR ÂżYH \HDUV WKH\ÂśYH become   extremely   popular.   Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   always   done  one  or  two  throughout  the  year,  but  all  of   a  sudden  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  become  a  huge  request.â&#x20AC;? For  one  thing,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  great  way  to  reconnect.

Kathryn   Quinn   of   East   Lansing,   Mich.,   is   approaching  her  11-­year  anniversary.  She  and   her  husband  recently  renewed  their  vows  on  a   trip   to   the  Virgin   Islands.  They   traveled   with   three  other  couples  and  all  four  renewed  their   vows  on  the  beach  on  Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m   so   glad   we   did   it,â&#x20AC;?   she   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;This   ZDV RXU ÂżUVW WULS DZD\ IURP RXU FKLOGUHQ ,W was  at  a  beautiful  location.  The  vow  renewal   was   meaningful,   and   gave   us   a   chance   away   from  our  daily  life  to  really   celebrate  our  time  together   and   be   grateful   for   our   relationship.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes,   a   vow   renewal   is   not   only   a   reminder   of   how   far   a   couple   has   come   but   a   memory  to  cherish. Winifred   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winiâ&#x20AC;?   Brunston   of   Lancaster,   Calif.,   lost   her   husband   last   year.   She   enjoys   looking   back   to   their   35th   anniversary,  in  2004,  when   they   renewed   their   vows   in   the   same   small   church   where  they  got  married.  The  same  couple  who   stood   up   with   them   back   then   resumed   their   duties. Brunston   feels   marriage   vows   mean   more   over   the   years   because   â&#x20AC;&#x153;after   being   together   after  all  that  time  you  really  know  each  other,â&#x20AC;?   and  â&#x20AC;&#x153;it  lets  the  spouse  know  you  still  love  them   enough  to  marry  them  again.â&#x20AC;? Anja  Winikka,  editor  of  the  wedding  website   TheKnot.com,   believes   one   reason   for   the   spike  of  interest  in  vow  renewals  is  that  some   celebrity  couples  have  done  it. 7RUL 6SHOOLQJ DQG 'HDQ 0F'HUPRWW ÂżOPHG

Southerland   says   she   recently   helped   a   couple  who  renew  their  vows  every  year.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   always   a   surprise,   and   the   husband   plans   it,â&#x20AC;?   she  said. Whether  you  renew  your  vows  annually  or   just  once,  in  a  small  ceremony  or  as  part  of  a  

vacation,   the   cost   of   saying   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   do   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   againâ&#x20AC;?   can  vary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  can  do  something  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  very  simple,   thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   just   the   husband   and   wife   standing   up   with   a   photographer,   and   that   can   be   less   than  $1,000.  Or  you  can  do  something  where   youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   invited   a   bunch   of   people.   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   had   people  spend  upwards  of  50  or  60  thousand,â&#x20AC;?   Southerland  said. And   even   a   do-­over   bride   can   turn   into   a   Bridezilla,  she  says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That  still  is  personality-­driven,  which  kind   of  makes  me  chuckle,â&#x20AC;?  she  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  thinking,   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow,  youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  known  this  guy  for  a  long  time.   Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  there  to  be  nervous  about?  So  what  if   D Ă&#x20AC;RZHU IDOOV RII DQ DUFK"Âś 2WKHUV DUH PRUH laidback.  But  you  still  have  some  very  nervous   brides.â&#x20AC;?

A few tips for a great toast (MS)  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  The  toasts  can  be  one  of  the  most   memorable   parts   of   a   coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   wedding.   Sometimes  a  toast  is  memorable  for  its  humor   and  heartfelt  sense  of  appreciation,  while  other   toasts   are   more   memorable   for   all   the   wrong   reasons. One   of   the   reasons   toasts   can   be   so   unpredictable   is   that   giving   a   toast   is   such   a   unique   experience.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   something   many   guests   never   do,   while   those   who   do   give   a   Avoid longtoast   may   only   do   it   winded walks once   in   a   lifetime.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   down Memory understandable   to   be   Lane in favor nervous   when   asked   to   of a toast that give  a  toast  at  a  wedding,   but   there   are   a   few   thoughtfully tricks   of   the   trade   that   cuts to the help   calm   those   nerves   chase and and   ensure   the   toast   is   lets everyone memorable   for   all   the   right  reasons. get back to Practice   makes   celebrating. perfect.   Few   people   are  capable  of  standing  in  front  of  a  crowd  of   people   and   speaking   off   the   cuff.   A   speaker   should   take   this   into   account   and   practice   their  speech  before  the  big  day.  A  spur-­of-­the-­ moment   speech   may   provide   an   adrenaline   rush,   but   such   an   endeavor   may   come   off   as   if  you  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  care  enough  to  put  the  effort  into   writing   a   thoughtful   toast   ahead   of   time.   In   addition,   practicing   the   toast   once   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   been   written  will  make  you  feel  more  comfortable   DQGFRQÂżGHQWLQIURQWRIWKHFURZG,ISRVVLEOH practice  in  front  of  a  friend  or  family  member

Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   research   also   includes   a   discussion  of  the  sail  ferries  on  Lake   Champlain,   a   subject   he   took   up   in   2001  while  researching  the  design  for   a   replica   sail   ferry.   This   overlooked   type  of  commercial  vessel  was  essen-­ tial   to   commerce   of   the   region,   par-­ ticularly   in   the   long,   narrow   reaches   of   the   south   lake.   Sail   ferries   were   a   vital   form   of   transport   and   trade   and   their  unique  design  was  ideally  suited   to  Lake  Champlain  waters.  Sail  ferries   also  have  the  distinction  of  being  the   longest-­serving  ferry  type  found  on  the   lake,  operating  from  the  late  1700s  to   the  era  of  the  automobile.  Brooks  built   the  sail  ferry  Weatherwax  for  the  Lake   Placid/Essex   County   Visitors   Bureau   and  the  state  of  New  York  in  2002.   In  addition  to  researching  and  build-­ ing  traditional  American  boat  designs   KHKDVDOVRDSSUHQWLFHGZLWKÂżYHERDW builders   in   Japan,   documenting   the   techniques   and   secrets   of   their   craft.   Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   previously   spoken   at   the   New   Haven  Library  with  his  talk  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ways  of   Learning:  An  Apprentice  Boat  builder   LQ -DSDQ´ +LV ÂżUVW ERRN Âł7KH 7XE Boats   of   Sado   Island:   A   Japanese   Craftsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Methods,â&#x20AC;?  was  published   in  Japan  in  2003  and  was  later  honored   by   the   Japanese   Ministry   of   Culture.   His   second   book,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sabani:   Building   the   Traditional   Okinawan   Fishing   Boat,â&#x20AC;?  was  published  by  the  Museum   of   Maritime   Science,   Tokyo,   Japan,   2011.  He  is  currently  working  on  his   third   book,   due   to   be   published   later   this  year. Brooks   writes   regularly   for   Wood-­ enBoat  magazine  as  well  as  other  pub-­ lications,   lectures   widely   and   teaches   boatbuilding   workshops.   He   recently   returned   from   a   summer   in   Japan   where  he  built  a  traditional  boat  in  an   international  arts  festival.

Brooks  attended  the  Williams  Mys-­ tic  Seaport  Program  in  American  Mar-­ itime   History   in   1980,   and   is   a   1982   graduate  of  Trinity  College  (B.A.,  phi-­ losophy)   and   a   2002   graduate   of   the   Middlebury  College  Language  School   (Japanese).  To  see  photos  of  his  boats   visit   www.douglasbrooksboatbuild-­ ing.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From   Skiffs   to   Sail   Ferries:   The   Story  of  Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Small  Boat  Tradi-­ tionsâ&#x20AC;?  is  part  of  the  Vermont  Humani-­ ties  Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Speakers  Bureau  series.   7KHVHULHVVXSSRUWV9HUPRQWQRQSURÂżW organizations   by   offering   lectures   on   art,   culture   and   history.   It   is   Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   second  talk  for  the  Speakers  Bureau.

Munchie (a k a the Munchinator) is an 11-yearold formerly feral kitten turned House Princess. She enjoys porch sitting, couch lounging, bed napping, and her blanket roll. Munchie loves to boss her dog-sister and humans around, but she is so cute, she always gets away with it. She has

grown a bit round over the years, but wears it well. She is very affectionate, and is living proof that stray cats make awesome pets! Judi Fisher Panton

It’s  against  the  law   to  discriminate  when   advertising  housing   related  activities. Particularly  on  sites  like  Craigslist. And  it’s  easier  to  break  the  law  than  you  might   think.  You  can’t  say  “no  children”  or  “adults  only.”   There  is  lots  you  can’t  say.  The  federal  government   is  watching  for  such  discrimination. Let  us  help  you  sift  through  the  complexities  of  the  Fair   Housing  Law.  Stay  legal.  Stay  on  the  right  side  of  the   nation’s  Fair  Housing  Law.   Call  the  Addison  Independent  at  (802)  388-­4944.
