TOO MUCH TO BE LEGAL
Technically, possession of Marijuana is still illegal to cary over a state line, but in the case of State vs Jonathan Don, police located much more pot than what would have been legal to possess in Vermont anyway. On Sunday, Vermont State Police were contacted by Federal Agents about a vehicle that had attempted to cross the border with more than a pound of marijuana hidden inside. The Ontario man, 28 year old Jonathan Don, who was driving the rented vehicle admitted to police that he was bringing the pot to Massachusetts to smoke at a relative’s graduation party. Border Patrol agents weighed the two bags of pot and together, they totaled about 1.5 lbs., according to court records. Vermont State Police responded, to find the pot disguised inside a can of coffee to mask its smell. Sunday happened to also be the first day that marijuana became legal to possess in Vermont, at least in small amounts. Don was turned back to Canada after being issued a citation to appear in court on Monday, where he was released on conditions and a $5,000 bond. If convicted, Don faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000 for possessing more than 1 lb. of pot.

SLEW OF CHARGES AFTER VSP LOCATES WANTED WOMAN
Vermont State Police say they received a tip that a wanted person was hiding out at a location just off Webster Road in Franklin on Friday. After investigating the tip, police swarmed the dead end road, ultimately loacating Melissa Labounty, 30, in a makeshift shelter nearby. Labounty was wanted on a retail theft charge, but was also on escape status from the Department of Corrections. The woman initially refused to exit the shelter, according to police. After a brief standoff, Labounty was taken into custody. During a search of the area, police located 5 grams of hallucinogenic drugs, 3 grams of crack cocaine, 2 grams of heroin and an assortment of non-prescribed regulated drugs. She was transported to Chittenden County Correctional Center to be held after escaping furlough, according to court records. That charge was filed on April 18th. She is due in Franklin County Court on the charge of Retail Theft. Labounty is additionally being charged with Felony Possession of Cocaine, Sale of Cocaine, Felony Possession of Heroin, Sale of Heroin, Possession of a Hallucinogenic Drug, Possession of a Regulated Substance, and Resisting Arrest. That court date is set for September 24th. Police said their investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
NEIGHBORLY DISPUTE ENDS IN CHARGES
According to the Vermont State Police, two neighbors on Enosburgh’s Davis Road had an altercation, which lead to both being charged. Court documents show that Richard Cronin chased Joseph Walker Brazie, 32, of Enosburgh back to his residence, a little more than a mile down the road from Cronin’s residence. Trooper Nicholas Olson wrote to the court in a sworn statement “Cronin called 911 approximately five times and said something to the effect that if VSP did not get [there] soon, he was going to arm

himself and drive back to WalkerBrazie’s residence and take care of him.” According to court files, Cronin told police that Walker-Brazie drove past his home at a very high rate of speed, angering him, and leading to the altercation. Cronin is reported to have followed WalkerBrazier back to his home, where he confronted him about the speed. Walker-Brazie is then accused of pulling a gun and using it to fire in the direction of Cronin. The Trooper wrote “It should be noted that after interviewing Walker-Brazie and examining evidence on scene it was determined that he shot his gun into the ground opposite Cronin in an effort to deter Cronin from advancing toward Walker-Brazie.” Police interviewed Cronin, who had a strong oder of intoxicants, according to police, leading them to ask for a breathalyzer test, since he had admitted to driving minutes before police arrived. Cronin’s PBT indicated a blood alcohol content of 0.267%. He was held on $5,000 bail until his arraignment on Monday. Walker-Brazie was issued a citation to appear in court on August 27th to answer to the charge of Reckless Endangerment for firing his weopon “without due regard for the safety of others,” according to the Trooper.
• Fintan Cournane, 34, of Richmond, Vermont crashed his vehicle in Montgomery on June 28th, leading to a charge of DUI. The crash occurred near the Fuller Bridge Road in Montgonery at around 1:34am Thursday, according to police. He was released on a citation to appear on July 16th to answer to the charge of DUI. • Brandi Lumbra, 35, of St. Albans was charged with driving with a criminally suspended license after being pulled over on Interstate 89 Northbound near the Georgia Rest Area on Saturday. She is due in court on August 27th. • Ashley Clark, 26, of St. Albans was arrested for driving with a criminally suspend license on Friday after police pulled her over on Route 7 in St. Albans. She is due in court on August 13th. • Richard Cronin, 59, of Enosburgh was charged with DUI #3 after an altercation with a neighbor on Sunday, according to police.

GETTING SEEDS TO GROW
This is where the law can get dicy. The moving of seeds over state lines could fall under federal juristiction. The sale of seeds from one person to another could also be seen as a violation of the sales provision of the law.
LAW ENFORCEMENT MODIFYING ENFORCEMENT
WHAT IF HARVEST MORE THAN ONE OUNCE FROM OUR PLANTS?
State law understands that you could, in some situations, harvest more than an ounce from one plant. State law allows more than one ounce of marijuana to be on the property where it was grown. You can’t leave that property with more than once ounce, but you can store it there and leave with one ounce at a time.
vehicle is against the law, wether you are driving, or riding. You can still be charged with a DUIDrug charge if you are caught driving with canabis affecting your motor skills. Watch out this summer, if you are on a boat with marijuana you can be held criminally liable for possession. That’s because the Federal Government is primary enforcement when it comes to waterways.
DEVELOPING CASE LAW
Legal president is developing and expected to drastically change and form canabis law. There are several issues that are gray areas. Of course the level of rink varries depending on what you are doing. Someone who is growing hemp for industrial purposes is less likely to be prosecuted than someone who is producing marijuana with high levels of THC and distributing it for sale.
GROWING IN YOUR HOME
F O O R WHERE CAN YOU CONSUME?
State law permits up to six plants, two mature, and four imature plants. If you don’t own the property, you will still have to get approval from your landlord to grow marijuana on their property.

MARIJUANA AND VEHICLES
Editor’s Note: This is not intended to be legal advise. If you have questions about marijuana use and the legality of it, you should seek legal advise from an attorney.
By Gregory J. Lamoureux County Courier The law that governs marijuana use in Vermont changed on July 1st, allowing small amounts of possession and cultivation to be legal, at least at the state level. The sale of marijuana in any form is still against state and federal laws. Vermonters are allowed to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants. A seventh plant could be charged as misdomenor and an eigth plant could reach the level of a felony in Vermont. With that being said, marijuana possession is still considered a federal crime. No matter how much you possess, if you aren’t 21 years of age or older, marijuana remains illegal.
Agencies across Vermont are modifying their proticols when it comes to weed. With case law up in the area, it makes it difficult for legal scholars to guess what officers can enforce, but many expect a push from defense attorneys to question the legality of stops or searches. The Vermont State Police has already begun retraining their K-9s not to hit on marijuana, according to some sourses in law enforcement.

The sale in any form is against the law. That being said, there is a gray area, according to attorneys, as to what can be defined as a sale. For instance, what if you sell a t-shirt for $50 with a half an ounce of pot as a gift for buying the t-shirt? That may be legal.
IT’S LEGAL, NOW WHAT?
Don’t settle for second best...

NO CHOICE IN FRANKLIN-4
Dear Sheldon and Swanton citizens, we currently have no choice in who will represent us in Montpelier for the next 2 years. (Same for St. Albans Town and Fairfax.) If you are okay with that, no need to keep reading. Franklin County representation is significantly out-of-balance, with mostly Republicans. As an Independent who does not vote along party lines, this concerns me. I am shocked to learn that our current Reps, Brian Savage and Marianna Gamache of Swanton, recently publicly supported President Trump’s initial decision to take innocent children away from their families who entered the U.S illegally, 17 Vermont Republican Reps in total. I know I sure would not want my own children and grandchildren to be significantly traumatized because of a decision I made. Would you? Honestly? Fortunately, at least the President changed his mind; it is cruel and inhumane to separate families. Now children will be reunited with their families and additional children will not be ripped from their families and warehoused. Don’t get me wrong, here. I support more control over illegal immigration. My husband came to the U.S. legally and became a U.S. citizen. His son and wife are currently on an 11-year waiting list to live in the U.S because they are going through the process legally. Despite what some would like us to believe, it is not too late to get your name on the ballot for November. To those of you in all parties and to independents, if you have ever thought about running for office, this may be the time. Independents, you have until August 9th to get on the ballot. If you need help or have questions, contact me at email@example.com or 2856070. Democrats, Progressives, Libertarians, and members of other parties, contact your Franklin County or Vermont party leaders. And Republicans, if you believe that “family values” are for ALL families (I know you’re out there), contact the Sheldon or Swanton Town Clerk’s office or the VT Secretary of State’s Office to find out how you can get on the ballot as a write-in candidate at the primaries this summer, even though your party already has two declared candidates. It is not acceptable, especially from elected officials, to support tearing families apart and traumatizing children. They are not Americans, but they are human beings. If we work together, instead of fighting with each other, we can find a way to handle illegal immigration humanely. If not, what kind of a society have we become? PLEASE don’t look the other way; we are better than this. Enough is enough. It is time to bring back common humanity to all levels of government - and it’s up to we the citizens to elect the people who will do it. In a
true democracy, we must have a choice. Exercise your rights as a Vermonter and American citizen and get involved. Tammie Colburn Consejo Sheldon
DON’T SKIP THE DETAILS
Responding to Erica A. Marthage’s Commentary-A National Embarrassment County Courier June 28 issue. As Bennington County State’s Attorney, one would expect Ms. Marthage to skip the deception and misleading writing and inform the reader of all the facts. My problem with her article is what she failed to write. The way her article is written, one would believe the immigration problems on our southern border began with the Trump administrations “zerotolerance policy.” Not so! The problems with our immigration policies began with presidents Clinton, GW, and Obama and their failure to faithfully enforce immigration laws! Ms. Marthage would have the reader believe that Mr. Trump’s policy has resulted “in a national disgrace, reminiscent of the dark ages in American history.” Really? Separation of children and family can never be a good thing yet she failed to inform the reader, the 2000 children she writes of, came to America alone! Without a parent! Yes, alone! Hypocritical to blame the Trump administration for separating children when it was their parent(s) that created the separation. Leaving out inconvenient facts suggest to me the writer is out to hurt President Trump. Writing all facts would not serve her agenda! Ms. Marthage also writes, “the photos released have shown children living in cages and sleeping on floors but fails to inform the reader the pictures were taken during the Obama administration. Had absolutely nothing to do with “zero tolerance!” She further writes, audio secretly recorded captured the wailing and crying of innocent children calling out for their parents. Dito! True, but again she fails to note the recordings were made during the Obama administration. Nearing the close of her commentary, Ms. Marthage states, “she will continue to advocate for the most vulnerable members of our community regardless of immigration status.” Here she is informing the reader that as a law enforcement officer, she will not enforce immigration laws. Her self-serving attitude is why we have serious immigration problems! Folks, if we have no borders we lose our country! This can’t be what Americans want? In closing, know the 2000 children forced into this mess (by their parents) are living better than 25 million American children! John Colburn Enosburg Falls

A STEP BACK IN TIME IN SHELDON
By Ruthie Laroche For the County Courier Guests at the second annual Sheldon Historical Society’s Tea Party spent an afternoon enjoying the finer things in Franklin County while supporting a cause that will help to educate folks about the history of Sheldon through antiques, artifacts, and oral histories. Tea party guests came from all over Franklin County to support the Sheldon Historical Society’s passion. Both guests and hostesses alike enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea held on the spacious patio of Albert and Sally Severy’s 1810 brick home, surrounded by rolling pastures, wooded hills, and manicured lawns. Historical society members provided guests with a wide variety of cookies, tea sandwiches, and scones, along with an endless supply of hot tea and lemonade. The tea party took guests back in time to the elegant Victorian years. Each table adorned with porcelain teacups and saucers and lovely, antique teapots. Members of the historical society have been collecting the dishes over the years, assembling a variety of patterns. Some of these dishes may eventually be on display at the much anticipated Sheldon Historical Society Museum. Funds raised by the tea party will be invested in renovations to the Old Harness Shop at 200 Bridge Street in Sheldon which was purchased by the historical society to house their museum. Thanks to the generosity of the Howrigan family, the building was purchased at a price the historical society could afford. Various grants including three Robert Sincerbeaux Grants provided by the Preservation Trust of Vermont, have also aided in the work.
The town of Sheldon acquired the building for a historical museum at the end of 2016 and society members have been working tirelessly to prepare it to host their exhibits. Work began on the outside of the building last fall and grant money is being secured to start renovating the first floor. The Sheldon ‘Old Home Days,’ hosted by the historical society, will take place in 2021, and there is hope that the building will be ready for its grand opening in conjunction with that celebration. “People are really looking forward to the Old Home Days. They are so excited to participate that I’m worried there won’t be anyone left to watch!” said Sally, laughing. Fern Mercure, president of the Sheldon Historical Society and a resident of the town, shared her love for the town and its people. “I enjoy working with the members of the society; they are passionate about preserving Sheldon’s history and telling its story. So many of our guests today also share that vision, and that makes all the hard work worthwhile,” said Mercure. Mercure wished to extend a heartfelt thank you to one person who has had a tremendous impact on helping the historical society realize thier goals. “Harold Smith deserves a great deal of credit for promoting the historical society,” explained Mercure, “He’s researched and published several articles, receives and compiles data for our growing collection, is one of our grant writers, and is the society’s webmaster at www. sheldonvthistorical.org.” The museum is the primary focus of the historical society, and all the members have invested countless hours into efforts to bring it to completion.
The Swanton Pediatrics Clinic will now be open five days per week, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
• Dr. Scott Spicer will begin seeing patients in Swanton on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting in July. He will continue to see patients in Enosburg on Mondays and Fridays. • Dr. Laura Bellstrom is adding hours at our Enosburg clinic on Wednesdays. She will continue seeing patients in St. Albans on Tuesdays and Fridays. • Dr. Chiappinelli will keep his current schedule there on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Thursdays, Dr. Chiappinelli sees student patients at MVU. Mon-Fri: 8am-4:30pm Call us at 527-8189 or visit Northwestern.org Locations in St. Albans, Swanton, and Enosburg
Mercure is especially pleased with the opportunity to record oral histories of town residents. “We will be starting to record the oral histories soon. There are so many people in our community who have a story to tell,” said Mercure, “We want to preserve that history from our senior population before it is lost forever. That’s what the museum is going to do: tell stories about our rich history and the people who created it. Mercure mentioned the pulp mill and the agricultural community as two significant contributors to the economy and history of Sheldon. “Sheldon has a lot of folks who made a career at the mill; we want to capture their stories. So many things have changed today with modern technology.” Life was not easy for Sheldon’s earlier generations, and that’s an angle the historical society wants to display for future generations. The historical society loves Sheldon’s history, but they don’t spend all their energies on
preserving the past. “Every year we try to do one big event where the community comes together, and we share a meal. For the past two years The Abbey has graciously sponsored a Spaghetti Dinner. We are planning a pig roast with a pot luck meal and entertainment later this fall. We see these events as a way to celebrate how far we have come,” said Mercure. Mercure and Sally Severy revitalized the Sheldon Historical Society four years ago. “Now that we have this building, which in itself is rich in history, we want to create a place where people of all ages can learn about our roots”, explained Mercure. The museum will be a meeting place for the people of Sheldon, complete with a park and access to the river. “We want it to be a fun place for the families to meet,” said Mercure, “maybe we’ll even host a tea party there.” Mercure has special ties to the Old Harness Shop building. When
her husband’s family moved from Burlington to Sheldon in the late forties, his parents bought the building, and his father ran the country store. The building also held a post office and the town clerk’s office. The building was built after the great fire of 1932 when Post Office Square burned, destroying the two-lane covered bridge and the mills in the area. Sheldon has many beautiful buildings, and one of those belongs to the Severys. Tea party guests enjoyed a guided tour of the Severy’s home. Alfred Keith built the house in 1810 and gave the land nearby to be used for the building of the Episcopal Church in Sheldon. Alfred’s brother Ruel Keith served as bishop of the newly constructed church. Bishop Keith is remembered for the fact that he married Robert E. Lee and his wife Mary Anna.

from back in the 1800’s when Sheldon was a booming town.” At one point a bank sat across the road from the Severy’s home. Down the road on Bridge Street there were several businesses and mills. When asked how long she has resided in the home, Sally surprised the crowd with her answer. She and her family moved into the house when she was seven years old, and that, as she pointed out, was a few years ago.
Sally recalled the day her family moved into the house. “The Kimbal girls, who attended the tea party, lived near here. Oscar Lapan owned this house. The Lapans were moving out one door, we were moving in the other, and the Kimballs were moving in one door and we were moving out the other,” said Sally with a chuckle. The Severy house is a treasure trove of antiques, most which reflect the everyday lives of folks a century ago, and many which belonged to some member of Sally or Albert’s families. A display of colored glass bottles may have been passed over, but Sally made sure to draw her guests’ attention to them. The bottles had once been filled with the medicine produced in the Spavin Cure Building. A few of her bottles still had the medicine inside. Sheldon had medicine of its own in days gone by, Sally pointed out. “A doctor came to Sheldon who had cancer of the tongue. He claimed that when he drank the mineral water it cured him. It was
almost like Saratoga; people came from all over!” said Sally. Eventually, clever entrepreneurs began bottling the water for sale. The Severy’s have a number of those bottles in their collection as well. “Albert brought our mineral bottles to the school so Harold Smith could show them to the kids,” Sally said, noting how at the height of the mineral craze, Sheldon boasted thirteen hotels for out-of-town guests looking to purchase the healing waters for themselves, “The kids were so excited when they started learning about the history of Sheldon, and that’s what we need.” The Severy’s have many small items in their collection, but they also house larger ones. They have saved the carriage that his grandparents used for their wedding over a century ago as well as a sleigh and buggy. Ed Kolnaski, who teaches seventh and eighth-grade Social Studies at the Sheldon Elementary School was volunteering at the event with two of his students, Brooke Hollande and Zoey Schryver. “Both these students love history, so I wasn’t surprised that they wanted to serve and volunteer and get that sense of community,” said Mr. Kolnaski.
Brooke was the Student of the Year for Most Outstanding Student in Social Studies at the Sheldon Elementary School. “I love history; it’s my favorite subject,” said Hollande, who enjoyed being with a group of people who were interested in preserving the history of her town, “It really intrigues me to read about events that really happened before our time.” Enosburg resident, Dinny Hawksworth was chosen as the guest speaker for the event. Hawksworth traveled to England in December of 2017, and her lively account of her visit to Buckingham Palace, where she met Prince Charles and saw her stepson, Tony Hawks, honored with an MBE, was enjoyed by all. After the tea party was over and the volunteers were packing things away, Sally took a moment to share about the goals she has for the Sheldon Historical Society and the town. “I was president of the historical society for three years, and one of my goals was to find us a building. This summer we plan to replace the siding on the west side,” said Sally, “We really want to do things that will bring people back together like they used to be in the old days; I love the community.”

“Playing at the Division I level makes you realize you have to love the game to play there. You’re playing every day for five or six months; you have midweek games while you’re still trying to keep in touch with friends and family and get your school work done. At the end of the day it was worth it for me for the experience I gained,” said Swim. Adversity struck during his time at NJIT in the form of an arm injury. Swim left the Division I team and went to rehab the arm. The loss of the spot at NJIT didn’t deter him. He joined the Castleton Spartans where he went on to complete his years of eligibility, putting up impressive numbers and earning awards for his exceptional play. “The environment at Castleton is second to none for what they provide for their student-athletes. I met a lot of really good people and had great coaching. I also got to play in two NCAA Regional Tournaments; it was a really good experience,” said Swim. “He’s mentally as strong as any player I have coached. Coming back from injuries is more mental than physical. He has that competitive spirit and that drive never to quit,” said Murray, of Swim’s success at

Castleton. After graduation, Swim interned at Bridgton, working with his former baseball coach Aaron Izaryk. “Coach Izaryk was a great influence. He is a great communicator and a great leader, and his knowledge of baseball is second to none,” said Swim. “Izaryk taught me there are days to play and days to coach; 17 to 19-year-old guys don’t want to be barked at. There’s a line between letting them figure things out and helping them understand what they are doing wrong. If they don’t want to hear it, they won’t make the change. ‘You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.’ That’s really relevant to this generation,” said Swim. The summer of 2017 brought Swim new opportunities to test his coaching skills. He became a First Assistant Coach for the Sanford Mainers, a New England Collegiate Baseball League team from Maine. “We had guys from Division I schools from all over the country,” said Swim. Coaching at the college level has provided Swim with a new level of expertise. “The great thing I’ve learned is the strategy level of the game at the
college level. It’s an accelerated version of baseball. You still hit, throw, and run, but it’s all at a different level,” explained Swim. Being involved with the Mainers afforded Swim the opportunity to give local guys a chance to test their mettle against some excellent competition. Mark Connor of BFA St. Albans, who attends Clarkson University, where he plays baseball, played for Swim over the summer. “It was a great experience playing for Nick for the Mainers. He is a very smart coach, and he’s fun to play for. Throughout the years Nick has been a big influence in my baseball career and has taught me many great lessons,” said Connor. Connor joined the Mainers halfway through the summer, pitching roughly 16 innings. Division I players who play on NECBL teams are allowed to throw a certain number of pitches in the off-season. When they reach that limit or suffer an injury, they leave the team, and a replacement is called. “I watched Mark grow up, and I’ve worked with him in the summer and the offseason. To see

“He was so instinctive; he played with no fear. He would try things no one else would, and he’d often make those plays,” said Murray, “he brought that fearless attitude to the field and it would inspire others.” Swim played varsity baseball and basketball for the Bobwhites from 2008-2011. He was named Gatorade Player of the Year for baseball in 2011 and achieved the coveted 1,000 point mark in basketball. “I’m a huge believer in a multisport athlete. You learn different things in different sports. On a basketball court, you learn how to be a teammate. On a baseball field, you learn strategy, and you learn how to work through failure. Baseball: you are never going to be perfect at it. It teaches you how you handle that. I would always get angry when I got out, but it humbles you and teaches you that you need to work harder,” said Swim. After graduation Swim spent a year at Bridgton Academy in Maine, honing his skills to earn his best shot at a chance to play Division I baseball in college. Those goals were brought to fruition when Swim landed a spot on the roster at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

By Ruthie Laroche For the County Courier Bellows Free Academy, St. Albans, has been home to many talented athletes, and Nick Swim is one of those who has carried his high school success to the next level. Geoff Murray, head coach of the Bobwhites all four years that Swim was on the baseball team, remembers him as a stand-out player who could never get too much of the game. “I would call him a ‘baseball rat.’ He was always on the field or in the cage looking to improve. He never had to be coaxed; he did it on his own. That speaks to his work ethic and his ability to persevere when confronted with a challenge,” said Murray. Swim’s dedication to the game earned him the respect of his peers, and his talent and grit came through in big spots. “In the state championship game we played against Essex, Nick was sent home on an overthrow. It was an aggressive play, and the ball beat him by three or four feet. The catcher was waiting for him, but Nick jumped over the catcher and was safe,” said Murray, “In a big moment, he wasn’t afraid to make a play.”

him competing at that level was a lot of fun,” said Swim. Swim will be returning to coach for Sanford this summer. “I’ve had guys from Division I schools text me and tell me that playing in Sanford was the best time of their lives,” said Swim. Currently, Swim is attending Ball State University in Indiana where he is volunteering with the baseball program and earning his Master’s Degree in Sports Administration with a minor in coaching. “I work as a graduate assistant, and I do research for the doctors in the master’s program I’m in. I also do research in fundraising in collegiate athletics, and I teach as well,” said Swim. Swim is the Division Director of Baseball Operations for the team, and he is in charge of all travel, food, game times, and hotels. On the internal side of the program, he sets up camps, works with recruits, and breaks down film for the coaches. “We have a young team this year, so we worked to get everyone comfortable with Division I baseball,” said Swim. With his last year of college ahead of him, Swim is ready to take on the next challenge. “I will graduate next summer, and I will see where next year takes me and what opportunities arise. I’m in Indiana now, but I am not glued to a location,” explained Swim, “It’s always a goal of mine to move back to Vermont at some point and hopefully work and coach there. In the future, I’d like to go back and give back what I’ve learned. I want to invest in baseball and basketball.” Murray looks forward to seeing
what the years hold for Swim. “Nick has almost finished the process of being a studentathlete, getting his education, and competing at the next level. Nick will bring all his experience with him to the community he lives in. He’s a great guy, and I’m proud to see his success,” said Murray. Coaching is something that is at the heart of Swim’s passion for the game, and he comes by it naturally. “My maternal grandfather Jim Ballou coached baseball for 40 years in South Royalton, and the Division IV state championship trophy is named after him,” said Swim. Swim has gleaned as much knowledge and wisdom as he can from the coaches he has worked with, and he enjoys employing that as he works with different teams. “Many modern programs are focused on personal stats. A good coach has to be working on the Team vs. Me all the time,” said Swim. Coaching allows Swim to work on players’ physical prowess, but it also extends to mindset and work ethic. “I think the biggest thing about coaching is being able to make a positive change in an athlete’s life. I know that I’ve had many coaches who’ve helped me, on and off the field, to be a better person, and I want to give back,” said Swim. Swim was able to invest in his Franklin County baseball community during the summer of 2014, coaching the Franklin County Legion Baseball Team. “It was cool to coach summer ball in Franklin County and see how the team and the individuals grew. In Franklin County, you have guys coming to play from different teams and towns. You bring them all together and see how they
grow,” said Swim. The success Swim has enjoyed since he graduated from college has not caused him to forget his roots in Franklin County. He remembers his high school coaches and athletic director Dan Marlow and the investment they put into his life as a student-athlete. “Mr. Marlow is such an inspiration to me, and I check in with him regularly. He makes time for me even though he’s busy. It was awesome to have someone when I was young who could guide me in the direction to be a proper gentleman, to work hard, and to never give up. I always try to think about what Mr. Marlow would do,” said Swim. “I was lucky to have Ken Fairchild as a basketball coach; he’s a legend at BFA, and to have Geoff Murray for baseball. Those two guys taught me so much, and I couldn’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me and what they taught me,” said Swim. “Murray was one of the scariest coaches I played for when I was younger. You’re going to respect the game, the players, the coaches, and him. He gives all-around respect, but he also demands respect in return. It’s not easy to come by that these days,” said Swim. Swim also thanked his parents and his youth coaches for their investment and the passion they instilled in him. “I’ve been blessed to have people who have been able to help me on my way; make sure that you reach out to the people who have helped you. It’s a cool thing to be able to let someone know they helped you, and you never know where someone is in their life and how that might impact them,” said Swim. Regardless of where he ends up after his time at Ball State, it’s safe
to say he will be with a team. Even though his playing days are behind him, his desire to compete is as sharp as ever. “I like to win; the competitive edge doesn’t go away.” Marlow remembers watching Swim grow over the years. “I have watched him grow right in front of me; he grew up in a great atmosphere doing a lot of things. He had lots of confidence, and he always maximized the moment and rose to the occasion whatever sport he was playing,” said Marlow. “His mom and dad were extremely supportive of him,” said Marlow. “My family has been the single most inspiration for me in my career. They have been there through the ups and downs and supported me no matter what the situation. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them and I hope one day I can be half the parents they are,” said Swim of his parents Mike and Karmen Swim. Marlow also noted that Swim is eager to share his confidence and skill with others. “When he talks with younger kids, the advice that he has to give is so important. It’s a powerful statement when it comes from someone who is not that far away from being a peer,” Marlow explained. Swim’s tenacity and spirit have left a lasting impression on Marlow. “It’s no surprise that he has continued to get what he’s wanted; he’s not afraid to work,” said Marlow, “He’s not afraid to compete; that’s what drives him. He’s also not afraid to do things the right way and stand up for what he believes in.”

Montgomery As Submitted By Lois Lumbra This is a hot day for me and enjoying staying inside with the doors closed and the fan going and its so nice and comfortable. It’s 97 degrees as I start this column, with the sun peeking through the haze and my husband said hotter than H e L L. Several have talked about the thunderstorm we got in the night a long toward morning actually. We haven’t had much for thunder storms in the past few
years according to my husband, for me, there has been plenty. Not my type of weather, I think I feel like my small dog as soon as I hear the thunder I want to run and hide. I guess we are in for a few more days of this, Hazy, Hot, and Humid. ( I was asked by Scott Perry would I go down and shut the water off for him at the MHS as they had the outside water on watering the new garden and as I was heading toward the water a little bird was there taking a bath as the water was dripping down. It was enjoying the coolness of the water, I’M Sure!!!) Michelle Legault was in town for a few days with her parents Maurice and Paulette Legault cleaning out the barn across the street from me. She gave me several items for our Fall Church sale. Michelle and Jake Webster make their home in Louisiana and

Congratulations to the newly

After a healthy lunch and showNtell the ladies were busy finishing up a quilt that had been donated to the group. They have 16 sunshine quilts completed of their goal of 25. There were members missing due to the summer holidays and family company. Friday night, June 29 the Montgomery Historical Society held their Annual Meeting. The Society remains active with the second Annual Farmer’s Market ongoing; a new Heritage Garden and many other activities. They would love to see more members joining. Their Joe and Irene Scott Scholarship winner was Kyla Perry. She read her essay on how growing up in Montgomery affected her life. It discussed how living in a small town had big rewards. She will be attending the University of Vermont in the Fall. (Good Luck and Congratulations Kyla). ( I would like to made a comment on the Heritage Garden,
What I have witnessed so far its going to be absolutely beautiful, I love it.) .On July 11 at 6:30 p.m. Charlie Nardozzi will be coming to explain this, “Learning To Grow Your Own Pollinator Garden.” Meeting at the Public Safety Building at 86 Mountain Road, just off route 242 in the Center.

STATE EMPLOYEES’ UNION PRESIDENT: SCOTUS RULING WILL HURT VT UNIONS Association will lose about $700,000 as a direct result of the change, according to VSEA executive director Steve Howard. But, Howard says recruitment is up. About 60 people have joined the VSEA over the past five days. The union currently has 6,128 paying members and 1,500 non-members that are a part of the collective bargaining unit. Howard said the number of paying members is “historic.” He attributes the uptick in membership to new laws and policy changes that will have an impact on collective bargaining. “I think a bad boss is a good organizer; and I think people were very concerned about Donald Trump and have become increasingly concerned about Governor Scott and the way his chief of staff has interjected himself into politics and the operations of the administration,” Howard said Since the Supreme Court decision, Howard said that VSEA has sent letters to members, explaining the case.

and activism among rank and file union members,” Howard said, “with some people saying ‘I am joining because of this decision.’” The Vermont-NEA, the state’s largest union, has also urged members to encourage nonmembers to join. “This case is the continuation of a generation of attacks on labor,” Vermont NEA spokesperson Darren Allen said in an interview with VTDigger. “We will continue to make the case that being a member makes the profession stronger and makes their voice stronger.”
“We’ve been explaining to members what’s behind this decision; this is not a decision that fell from the sky, this is a decision that was funded by billionaire Koch brothers,” Howard said. “The reason they funded this was to try to break the backs of unions.” According to a June 27 [New Yorker article] the Koch Brothers and other conservative billionaires have been funneling money into anti-union cases for decades through tax-exempt organizations. “I think the impact is it’s going to create a new level of energy
Allen said the union has 13,035 paying members and 1,165 nonmembers and declined to comment on how much revenue the union would lose as a result of the case. According to the NEA’s website, dues were set at $165. If nonmembers do not pay dues, the loss would be about $192,225. The union plans to recruit nonmembers, Allen said. “Our main message to members is the same message we would tell everybody, this union has grown because members have made to the case to nonmembers its a really good force,” Allen said.

By Kelsey Neubauer VTDigger Public unions in Vermont say a Supreme Court ruling made last week will have direct impact on membership and a key source of revenue. Last week, the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional the practice of charging non-union members union fees. The narrow 5-4 majority in Janus v. AFSCME, overturned the 1977 landmark case Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, which found that unions could mandate non-members to pay union fees to cover the costs of “collective bargaining, contract administration, and grievance adjustment purposes.” The 2018 ruling determined that such an arrangment “violates the free speech rights of nonmembers by compelling them to subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern.” Public sector unions across the country, and in Vermont, are bracing for the economic repercussions of the decision.
