RUTLAND—Vermont Atty. Gen. William H. Sorrell announced last week that David B. McLellan of Mt. Tabor was sentenced on three felony environmental crimes: one count of illegal storage or disposal of hazardous waste, one count of illegal storage or disposal of solid waste, and one count of illegal release of hazardous materials. The convictions stem from an investigation conducted by the Vermont Attorney General’s Office and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources in 2008 which discovered the burial by McLellan of 23 55-gallon steel drums containing hazardous materials, including waste oil, on his property in Mt. Tabor. Judge Thomas A. Zonay sentenced McLellan to one to three years in jail, all suspended, and placed him on two years of probation, subject to standard and special probation conditions, including conditions that he: permit the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources to access his business properties upon request, obtain all necessary permits for waste disposal, and appear before the Rutland County Reparative Board. The judge also sentenced McLellan to pay $29,077.24 in restitution to the Agency of Natural Resources for excavation and cleanup costs and a $10,000 fine.

Court date approaching in crack-cocaine case RUTLAND — The Southwestern Vermont Drug Task Force conducted an investigation into the distribution of crack cocaine and heroin in the Rutland City area. During the investigation Stacy Silva, age 19, of Rutland, and Walton Gaskin, age 20, of Bronx, N.Y., sold felony amounts of crack cocaine to an agent with the Task Force. Silva was under supervision of the Vermont Department of Corrections at the time of the sales and on field supervision. Silva was arrested for sale of crack cocaine offenses Jan. 19. After Silva’s arrest, with the assistance of the Department of Corrections, Gaskin was apprehended at Silva’s Rutland City FSU residence and arrested. Vermont Department of Correction personnel recovered bags containing a felony amount of heroin from Silva’s residence along with suspected suboxone pills. Silva was issued a citation to appear in court to answer offenses of sales of crack cocaine, felony possession of heroin, and possession of narcotic drugs. Gaskin was issued a citation to appear in court to answer the offense of sale of crack cocaine. Silva and Gaskin will appear in Rutland District Court March 22.

Act 62 now regulates raw milk production MIDDLEBURY — In response to a skyrocketing demand for raw milk and the significant economic opportunity it creates for Vermont’s farmers, a new law governing all direct-to-consumer raw milk sales was implemented seven months ago. The new law–Act 62–establishes a set of reasonable and basic standards, and allows farmers to make home deliveries to prepaid customers and sell up to 40 gallons per day.This new law creates a tiered regulatory structure in which two tiers are defined by the quantity of raw milk being sold directly to consumers. Tier One producers include those farms selling up to 50 quarts (12 gallons) per day, and Tier Two producers can sell up to 40 gallons per day and make home deliveries to prepaid customers. All farmers selling any amount of raw milk are expected to follow the reasonable and basic standards defined by the new law, thereby ensuring a safe and highquality raw milk supply. A few examples of these standards include that animals must be healthy, milking equipment must be cleaned and sanitized, milk must be cooled quickly, and farmers must maintain a daily transaction record. Those operating as Tier 2 producers must follow some additional requirements, including registration with and inspection by the Vermont Agency of Agriculture and regular milk testing. Regardless of the quantity being sold, any farmer can get

Two of the thousands of cows statewide providing raw milk to Vermonters. certified as a Tier Two producer if s/he would like to deliver raw milk to customers. This new law is hailed as a victory for Vermont by some politicians and most dairy farmers, because it recognizes that there is a food system that exists beyond the industrial model of mass production and distribution, and that different rules should apply when food is being produced in smaller quantities and sold directly to the end user. Tiered regulations give farmers the opportunity to start small and grow their business gradually, as the market allows, rather than requiring a risky and expensive upfront investment. Rural Vermont, a nonprofit advocacy group with a mission of economic justice for farmers, launched a Raw Milk campaign several years ago at the request of many of its farmer members. Since 2005, Rural Vermont has worked closely with a large and diverse group of farmers to advocate for progressive raw milk legislation. This work resulted in

the passage of the Unpasteurized (Raw) Milk bill, which became Act 62 when enacted into law. Rural Vermont’s “Unpasteurized (Raw) Milk Seller ’s Guide” outlines the new law in detail and provides referrals and suggestions for ensuring that compliance is as simple and inexpensive as possible. Farmers interested in either getting started with a raw milk dairy or diversifying their dairy income with raw milk sales will find this handbook to be a valuable resource. For consumers seeking a local source for raw cows' or goats' milk, Rural Vermont has partnered with the Weston A. Price Foundation to create a directory of Vermont’s raw milk producers. Farmers from every county are listed, along with contact info and farm descriptions. Both the seller ’s guide and the directory can be accessed for free through Rural Vermont’s website www.ruralvermont.org, or by calling the office at 223-7222. Rural Vermont is a statewide nonprofit group founded by farmers in 1985.

Some bright ideas for stockpile storage

T

his week, I’ll answer two e-mails from readers with stockpiling issues!

Q: “I enjoy your weekly column and am fascinated by all the deals you manage to put together. Do you have any advice for the single people who don’t cook for large families or who don’t have the capacity to store multiples of products as the current coupons require? Any thoughts on couponing and the single lifestyle?” Q: “I live in Southern California and the summers are very hot. I can’t store canned goods in the garage because the heat causes the cans to bulge. A basement would be nice, but out here we just don’t have them. Do you have any ideas for us out here in hot country?” Sure! Stockpiling groceries at home is a fantastic way to “beat” the price cycles at the grocery store, which typically run on 12week cycles. When you know that an item you would like to buy will not be at its lowest price again for almost three months, buying enough to last your household three months ensures that you won’t have to run to the store and pay a higher price. You’ll “shop from home” by using items from your stockpile, and the next time a sale comes around again, you can stock up once more. But what do you do if you’re space-challenged? Believe it or not, stockpiling can be easier if you’re a single person. While living in a smaller residence may limit your storage space, the upside is that storing three months’ worth of cereal for one person is going to take up a lot less room than three months’ worth of cereal for an entire family would. And, when household cleaners go on sale, you could easily get buy with buying one or two instead of four or five - again, you’re going to base your stockpile on your usage needs. Now, where do we put all of this stuff? My cousin started Super-Couponing last year. He is single and lives in a one-bedroom condominium where space is at a premium. I’ve watched with great interest as he has come up with some of the most creative places to store his stockpiled items! He’s utilized under-bed boxes and drawers for everything from cereal to canned goods. Another often-overlooked place that he’s embraced is the space above his kitchen cabinets. If you have open soffits, there is a lot of space up there that just sits unused. As a single guy, he does-

here’s surface evidence showing that the planet Mars had a breathable atmosphere billions of years ago. Astronomers have theorized that either due to Mars’ small mass or solar winds, the atmosphere eventually leaked away into the vacuum of space— or did it? Rather than having had its air leak away into space over millions of years, Mars may be holding its breath. Findings from the Mars Express spacecraft currently orbiting the red planet suggest that Mars’ missing atmosphere might be socked away in underground gas and ice reservoirs around the planet. NASA researchers discovered that Mars is currently losing a mere 20 grams (.04 pounds) of air per second into space. That’s not a very big leak. Thus, when European space researchers extrapolated 20 grams per second back over the 3.5 billion years of martian geohistory, they found only a tiny fraction, 0.2 to 4 millibars of carbon dioxide and a few centimeters (less than one inch) of water, was lost. (A note about millibars: A bar is a unit of the liquid element mercury for measuring atmospheric pressure; Earth's atmospheric pressure is about 1 bar.) Liquid water may still flow for brief moments across Mars's surface as NASA scientists discovered last year. In fact, a martian water layer might be half-amile deep in places and feed the transient surface flows with powerful, albeit brief, aqueous outpourings. With this much liquid, it becomes apparent that Mars had a higher atmospheric temperature and pressure—perhaps enough to form a moderate greenhouse effect similar to Earth.

Mars' atmosphere must have been between 1 to 5 bars to maintain that kind of greenhouse effect, scientists think. But Mars' atmospheric pressure today is only a small fraction of that—about 0.008 bars or about 0.7 percent of the average surface pressure at sea level on Earth, according to a European Space Agency news report. What happened to Mars' atmosphere and water has been a well guarded cosmic mystery. One idea was that the martian atmosphere was “eroded” over billion years by powerful solar winds. A more controversial idea is that Mars' atmosphere was blown into space by a catastrophic asteroid or comet impact in the remote past. A space rock at least 6 miles (10 kilometers) wide could have been enough to obliterate Mars’s once abundant atmosphere. However, scientists may “overplay” the impact hand when explaining planetary change. An urgent note: NASA’s founding space mission as well as the future of space science research in the United States is under assault by the Obama administration. If you believe in

n’t mind the visuals of having jars and bottles stored on top of his cabinets. If this bothers you, you could always camouflage them. Someone in a recent coupon class told me that they keep silk plants on top of their cabinets for aesthetics and for a very practical reason. Behind the plants are cans of soup and By Jill Cataldo jars of peanut butter! Furniture can be a great place to “hide” stockpile items. Many people have re-appropriated old armoires, china cabinets or buffets to store stockpile items inside. Kept in the dining room, they’re still close to the kitchen and can give you some overflow space to store more items. Don’t feel like your stockpile items have to be limited to the kitchen area. During one good sale, a friend of mine filled her son’s bedroom closet shelves with boxes of cereal. I know one couple that decided to keep their sheets and towels in their master closet to free up the linen closet for use as a pantry. Clear plastic storage totes are good places to store stockpile items, too. They stack well and can sit on the floor of a closet. Even in a warm climate, you can store non-food items in the garage. Paper products such as paper towels, plates, toilet paper, facial tissue and napkins all store well on garage shelves. The key to stockpiling in any situation is to stop stockpiling when your allotted space fills up. Sales do come around again and again. It can be easy to get lured in by a great sale and take home much more than you need or use. If this happens, remember your local food pantry! Pantries will take food items, personal care and cleaning products. This is a good way to prune down your stockpile too if you find it’s starting to get too large .

y apologies go out to those who read my columns regularly; this week topic is a pet peeve of mine. So-called experts repeatedly utter “um,” and/or “uh,” during television and radio interviews. Some of the so-called um and uh using experts I’m alluding to are politicians, councilpersons, lawyers, and, anyone deemed an expert because the thing they do fairly well happens to be relevant to some benign topic drummed up to fill a slow news cycle. If you can believe it, Mr. and Mrs. Obama are guilty of uming and uhing, too. First Lady Michelle Obama was on Larry King’s show last night speaking about nutrition and childhood obesity, two things I’m interested in. I had to drive overstreet just as the show came on, but was able to tune it in on my radio. Hard as I tried, I could not concentrate on the substance of Mrs. Obama’s statements, because all I could hear was, um, uh, um, uh, uh, um, um, and um some more. Mrs. Obama is doing loads of good with her White House vegetable garden, mothering her little girls, and overall leading by setting a great example in so many areas. But if one of the First Family handlers doesn’t get to tutoring Mrs. O. on how to eliminate the ums and uhs that so thoroughly litter her lexicon, there are going to be a lot of hard to listen to tapes setting around the Obama Presidential Library when the time comes, and when ole Michelle hears the playbacks she is not going to be happy. I mean a lot of tapes, because Michelle is not the only family member umming and uhhing, she gets it from her husband. He does it more than she does. (speaking without the teleprompter (w/o t t) People make fun of George W. Bush’s communication skills; they were bothered by his totally obliterating a word here and there with his common-folk speak. I’m not bothered by that. What bothers me is when I hear someone jamming high-toned words in between ums and uhs and sort-ofs. (I’ll do an entire column on sort-ofs, another time) When George W. speaks I don’t expect much, so I’m never surprised by words he uses. But when Barack and the Mrs. speak, w/o t t, and lay down the ohs and uhs thick as rime ice on top of Mount Washington, I’m very surprised, because from them I expect a clearer more effective manner of speech. Which is a theme lately. That is, folks expecting more from our president. Maybe folks shouldn’t expect more from Barack, or should I say maybe folks, not just from Barack but from every politician, shouldn’t believe so much of the campaign B.S. I don’t expect much from the Obamas politically—I don’t expect much from anyone politicallybut I do expect that politicians spew fewer ums and uhs when they speak on the air. Because when they um and uh constantly, even if what they’re saying is true, I don’t get the sense that they’re fully engaged.

I don’t know for sure, but I may be the only person bothered by constant sporadic umming and uhhing. I’ve never heard anyone else say it bothers them. Does it bother you? Maybe you don’t even notice Barack and Michelle umming and uhhing—but I bet you noticed when George W. Bush said something stupid. Maybe it’s that thing where if you find someone unlikable, like George Bush, it’s easy to recognize their weaknesses and then use that recognition to dislike them more. But if you like someone, like Barack Obama, you’re easily able to overlook weaknesses you might notice in them and keep liking them the same or even more. We humans are a curious lot ,eh? We’ll be critical only when it’s convenient for, and consistent with our feelings for the things we sit it judgment of—which is of course, all things. Take my mom’s feelings for me, for example. I think I could murder my butcher and my mother would say, “Well, that man did sell my son a bad piece of meat.” We like what we like for a number of reasons, but mostly we like what we like because we like it. I like Michelle Obama, so maybe I was all hedd up last night because I was listening to her on the radio and not seeing her, and that’s why the ums and uhs stuck out. But I don’t think so. I think putting the two together, seeing her um and ah while hearing her um and ah, would have only amplified the distraction for me. Regarding local politicians and talk-show hosts and councilpersons: maybe one can assume they do the um and ah lazy speak because they’re part-timers, greenies, who haven’t accumulated enough hours of experience to speak properly on-air. One could also assume they’re just trying to emulate what they hear the big timers doing, and they’re trying to fit into a mold which makes them seem authentic in the political world, a world where faux authenticity most usually trumps pure individualism. What the frig am I talking about? Bottom line: All this umming and ahhing must cease, especially with Michelle and Barack, but also with the hordes of others who are near and or at the top of the media mountain. They all need to un-um and un-ah their unscripted speaking, if only because—and they’d never believe it possible—the umming and ahhing makes them sound less educated than me—and, um, that uh, that ain’t good.

As a rule, bureaucracies and genius are incompatible. A notable exception will be found in the New York State Department of Transportation and the Vermont Transportation Agency, which recently released plans to replace an 80-yearold bridge spanning Lake Champlain. Leading the team designing the new bridge is consultant Ted Zoli, a 2009 winner of a MacArthur Fellowship, commonly known as the genius award. Among other things, the MacArthur Foundation cited Zoli’s sensitivity to the context in which his “elegant and enduring” bridges are built, and Zoli clearly appreciates the natural, historical and social context of the bridge at Crown Point. “There’s no more important structure within the built environment of that region,” says Zoli. “It’s a part of people’s lives. So much local sentiment is attached to it.” Zoli is familiar with that sentiment in part because he monitors the residents’ email messages that arrive at his firm’s offices in Kansas City. He also participated in a series of December public meetings in Ticonderoga on the two states’ plans to demolish and replace the bridge. But the origins of Zoli’s appreciation of the Champlain Valley lie much deeper than those relatively casual encounters with the region would suggest. He was born in Glens Falls and raised in Queensbury, attending local schools before going away to Hotchkiss. He went to summer camp at Dudley, in Westport, a few miles north of the bridge. When he was growing up, his family kept a boat near the bridge in Vermont... He comes from a family of engineers and roadbuilders, whose firm was selected by New York State to help build the Adirondack Northway. Zoli says he spent the first months of his life in a trailer near Schroon Lake, when that section of the Northway was under construction. Zoli’s appreciation of the original Lake Champlain Bridge and its designer, Charles M. Spofford, is no less deep. In addition to being a designer of bridges, Zoli teaches bridge design at Columbia and at Princeton, from which he graduated in 1988. “The Lake Champlain bridge set a high standard for any new bridge that replaces it; in some respects, it should be as important as the original,” he says. With the Lake Champlain Bridge, Zoli says, Spofford liberated the steel truss from its traditional function as a railroad bridge. The 2,184-ft-long truss linking Crown Point and West Addison, Vermont is “nearly parabolic” in shape, continuous rather than segmented, and constructed with a “maximum navigational window” to permit steamboats to pass underneath. Following construction of the bridge (for which Spofford was awarded a gold medal by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1930, the year the bridge was completed), “hundreds of continuous truss bridges were built; it ushered in a whole new typology of bridge engineering,” said Zoli. Spofford, however, did not expect the bridge’s piers to deteriorate as quickly as they did. “We’re not here designing a new bridge because of some flaws in the truss, but because of the piers,” said Zoli. “Spofford used concrete containing tailings from local iron ore mines. When he tested the concrete at MIT, we surmise that he found it to be twice as strong as conventional concrete and concluded that the piers wouldn’t require steel re-enforcement.” Time and ice took their toll on the piers, Zoli said. “Once the process of erosion starts, it’s very difficult to stop. Once it gets going, it goes quickly.” After being found to be unsafe because of the condition of

the piers, New York and Vermont decided to close the bridge in October. In December, Zoli unveiled the designs for six possible bridges, any one of which could feasibly replace he old one. The recommendation of a Public Advisory Committee chaired by Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, as well as the favorite of the public, is a design for a bridge known as a Modified Network Tied Arch Bridge, a steel structure with an arch along the main span that evokes the appearance of Spofford’s 1930 bridge. “The design replicates the truss in a modern way, but with safety enhanced,” says Zoli. “Multiple redundancies in the design make this bridge significantly safer than the existing structure. If one component fails the bridge isn't at risk of collapse,” said Zoli. The new bridge will also be wider, with six-foot shoulders for bicycles and a sidewalk for pedestrians. The design is based on one developed by Norwegian engineer Per Tveit in the 1950s, now a friend and colleague of Zoli’s. Zoli says he had no interest in introducing radically new concepts into his designs for a Lake Champlain bridge. “I have a very strong sense of engineering as an incremental process; one that’s evolutionary rather than revolutionary. We communicate our ideas to other engineers through these built structures,” he said. The test of a successful bridge design is necessarily the safety of those who use it, Zoli says, and the problems posed by vulnerable structures have occupied his imagination since the events of Sept. 11, 2001. “Engineers learn from events, and what 9-11 taught us was that we have to design for unforeseen events; that’s what I’m interested in: designing for things we can’t anticipate,” he says. That interest led Zoli to develop new lightweight, blastresistant coverings for an array of construction applications, and helped earn him the MacArthur fellowship. “In an era of aging infrastructure and catastrophic structural collapses, Zoli is safeguarding vulnerable links in the nation’s highway system and developing design principles for the construction of robust, new landmarks in the United States and across the globe,” the MacArthur Foundation stated when announcing that Zoli was among the winners of the 2009 awards. Among those “robust, new landmarks” may well be the next Lake Champlain bridge, one that could be, as Zoli said, “in some respects, as important as the original.” Editor’s Note: Printed with permission of Tony Hall and the Lake George Mirror.

The taxman cometh: finding the right tax help Most Americans will get assistance from a professional tax preparer or tax software when filing their taxes this year. Better Business Bureau of New England is encouraging Vermont taxpayers to use caution when selecting tax preparation help or they may get hit with headaches and mounting fines and fees if the return isn’t correct or filed late. According to the IRS, 80 percent of Americans enlist the help of a tax preparer or tax software when filing their taxes. Unfortunately, every year BBB receives thousands of complaints from consumers against tax preparers. Commonly, complainants state that the tax preparer made errors in their return which resulted in fines and fees. “Even though the tax preparer completes the return, it’s the taxpayer who is ultimately responsible for the return’s accuracy and whether or not it’s filed on time,” said Paula Fleming, BBB New England spokeswoman. “The fines, fees and hassles can mount if you choose an unreliable tax preparer and that’s why it’s important to do your research.” BBB offers the following advice to find a trustworthy tax preparer: • Ask around. Get referrals from friends and family on who they use and check the BBB Reliability Report on tax

preparation services at bbb.org. • Look for credentials. Ideally, your tax preparer should either be a certified public accountant, a tax attorney or an enrolled agent. All three can represent you before the IRS in all matters, including an audit. Also, find out if the preparer is affiliated with a professional organization that holds its members to a code of ethics. • Don’t fall for the promise of a big refund. Be wary of any tax preparation service that promises larger refunds than the competition, and avoid any tax preparers who base their fee on a percentage of the refund. • Think about accessibility. Many tax preparation services only set up shop for the months leading up to April 15. In case the IRS finds errors, or in case of an audit, you might need to be able to contact your tax preparer throughout the year. • Read the contract carefully. Read tax preparation service contracts closely to ensure you understand issues such as how much it is going to cost for the service, how the cost will be affected if preparation is more complicated and time consuming than expected and whether the tax preparer will represent you in case of an audit.

Poultney High School News

PHS student graduates with special ceremony POULTNEY — During a recent Tuesday evening, a special graduation ceremony was held for 16-year-old Poultney High School student Eliza Mauhs-Pugh. The ceremony was held during the PTSD Board meeting in the school’s library. Mauhs-Pugh’s parents, grandmother, and several PHS teachers attended the unusual ceremony. Mauhs-Pugh graduated before the end of the first term because she is leaving for an extended trip to Spain. During the ceremony, Principal Jean Oakman presented the new graduate with a framed letter of recommendation outlining Mauhs-Pugh’s personal and academic accomplishments. PHS teacher Mrs. Gallipo awarded the Lamp of Knowledge Certificate and pin to Mauhs-Pugh on behalf of the Poultney Women’s Club. It is awarded to a student annually whose average is 90 percent or better during the school year. Another PHS teacher, Mr. DeBonis, presented MauhsPugh with two certificates for exceptional accomplishments in the music and drama departments at PHS. Mauhs-Pugh accepted the diploma from PHS superintendent Paustian and school board chairwoman Mary Jo Teeter. She was commended for exceeding the number of high school credits necessary for graduation, for designing her own high school curriculum, for graduating ahead of time and for her diverse and creative thinking. At the end of the ceremony, a custom watercolor print of Poultney, created by local artist Peter Huntoon, was given to Mauhs-Pugh by Oakman and Mary Jo Teetor. MauhsPugh would have been valedictorian in June for the PHS Class of 2010, but chose to graduate early; another student in the PHS Class of 2010 will win the honor.

Thank you, Hannah Garuti A special thank you is offered to Hannah Garuti, sixth grader in Mrs. Hewes’s class, for volunteering and consoling the younger children at both flu clinics held at the Poultney Elementary School (PES).

Raiders fall in season finale By Fred Pockette

RUTLAND — The Green Knights of Rice scored twice in the final 63 seconds turning a 4-4 tie into a 6-4 win over the visiting Rutland Raiders last Saturday in boys high school hockey action. Danny Anderson and Will Briand led the charge with a pair of goals apiece, while Alex Morse and Billy Hoerr rounded out the Knights scoring with single goals. In the net Robert Street made 31 for Rice, who finish their ear st 3-15-1. Taylor Porrier scored all four goals for the Raiders, with his teammate Sam Major. Providing assists on three of them, Andrew Boyle made 33 saves for the Raiders who wound up their season at 10-9-1. In Rutland the Lady Raiders hosted the Rice Green Knihjtd, and Dianna Roldolfy, Danielle Greco and Brittany Pelkey, who shared net duties combined for nine saves., shutting ou the visiting Knights 5-0. Chelsea Hill scored twice for Rutland, while Erin Bourne, Taylor Kresconko and Aliza Farwell added single goals for Rutland, who finish up their season at 16-4, and look to get a high seed in the upcoming tournament. Sydney Carney-Knisely amassed 45 saves in defeat for Rice. In Stowe, Kim Haab scored a hat trick, and chipped in two more to lead their Stowe Raiders to a 10-0 thumping of the Mount Saint Joseph Mounties. Sam Haab, Malia Bartholomew, Shannon McDowell, Stacy Tomlinson and Alana LaViale rounded out Stowe’s offensive barrrage with single goals. In the net goalie MaKayla Geraci needed to make just four saves for Stowe who complete their regular season at 11-9. Kaitlyn Robertello made 25 saves for MSJ. Spring has nearly sprung Good news. Spring is just around the corner. All the signs are there. No, don’t look for that first robin, or a flock of geese flying north. Instead look to your local sports page. That is where all the signs of spring will leap off the page at you. What signs am I talking about? For starters this past week girls high school basketball, along with boys an girls high school hockey began their post season tournaments. The boys basketball teams wrapped up their regular season this week, and their tournaments start next week. The guard is changing from the winter season to the spring season. What about the professional level? Yes, the signs there are even clearer. The Superbowl is over and the NBA has played their all-star game, and their second half of the season, a majority of which is a spring time activity, is already underway. It becomes even more obvious when you look south. The boys of summer are back at work. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training this weekend, and position players will be reporting next week. The Baseball preview magazines are everywhere on the magazine racks, and my three fantasy baseball leagues are setting draft dates, finding out who is in and who is out, and they keep pestering me for my keepers. Within two weeks they will be playing baseball games in Florida and Arizona. And to me, when that happens, and I don’t care if we have six feet of snow on the ground here in Vermont, that is when spring officially starts. I do enjoy Christmas, watching football and coaching junior varsity basketball—all wintertime activities. But nothing beats the arrival of the warm weather, long summer days and the crack of the bat as baseball gets underway. Opening day is my favorite day of the year. Yes, I am a baseball junkie. But all is ok. I have survived another Vermont winter and I am about to get my fix that will last eight months. All is good. I am truly happy again. Go Red Sox!
