Wallingford committee members complain WALLINGFORD — Members of the Wallingford Recreation Committee are scratching their heads this week. They claim the town is unclear when it comes to defining committee responsibilities as they relate to the town’s Elfin Lake and summer programs. Several committee members contacted Wallingford Selectboard members last week and urged that they receive clear guidelines. “We really don't have an idea what our responsibilities are supposed to be,” according to Lisa Marchinkoski at the recent selectboard meeting. The selectboard has assumed tasks that used to be assigned to the recreation committee; as a result, recreation committee members are adrift. Marchinkoski complained to the selectboard members that her committee is nothing more than “free labor” for the town.

November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month Do you know that older dogs and cats make wonderful pets? They are more likely to be house trained and they are typically calmer than younger animals. Additionally, their behaviors and personalities are usually already established. If you are thinking of adopting an animal, please consider an older one. And if you're 55 years old or older and adopt an animal five years old or older from the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS), there is no adoption fee. The program is RCHS's Senior-to-Senior program. To learn more about the program or to find out what senior animals are available for adoption please call 483-6700 or visit

Coats for Kids: Drive extended RUTLAND — There’s still time to donate a new or gently used winter coat to a child in need. Coats for Kids has extended its drive until Monday, Nov. 16, because so few coat donations have come in and yet there are more needy children in the Rutland area this year. Approximately 150 coats, mostly in young adult sizes, have been collected. But more than 300 children are in need of a warm winter coat. “Coat donations are drastically down this year,” Darlene McMahon, Coats for Kids organizer, said. “We need the younger sizes, infant to 5T. Although, we are accepting all sizes, ranging from newborn to young adult. A recent donation by the City of Rutland D.P.W. & Clerical Workers Inc. enabled organizers to buy several new coats but there is still an extreme shortage. The drive is also accepting boots, snow pants, hats, mittens, scarves and other winter outerwear, such as fleece sweaters. Your donated item will go directly into the hands of a local child. Donations may be dropped off at collection boxes located inside Hannaford, Price Chopper, and Replay Sports, and Durgin’s Cleaners. The following local schools also have drop boxes: Neshobe in Brandon, Barstow Memorial School, Clarendon Elementary, Fair Haven Grade School, Pittsford Lothrop School, Pittsford Town Office, Poultney Elementary & High School, Proctor Elementary & High School, Rutland City Northeast, Rutland City Middle School, Rutland City Intermediate and Wallingford Elementary. Coats and other items will be distributed to children of families in need on Friday, Nov. 20, 3-7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov.21, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., at Trinity Church on West Street in Rutland. For more information or to make a donation, call McMahon at 855-8880.

Altered states at the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center

Lenny’s – Wendell’s – WCAX – WOKO 98.9



By Catherine M. Oliverio RUTLAND - The Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center and Salt Cave offers a wide array of holistic healing services. Venture to Rutland and experience rejuvenation and instant health benefits! What is holistic? It all depends on you. “Holistic takes into consideration the medical, physical, and spiritual aspects—it’s taking us back to nature,” said Dr. Margaret Smiechowski, Rutland’s new salt cave designer and practitioner. “We believe that everyone should have access to wellness offerings at an affordable price for less than the price of an hour at a more expensive spa or clinic,” said Dr. William Kelley, Pyramid’s owner and practitioner. “With over 30 incredibly educated and experienced practitioners and instructors, we have created a one-stop facility.” The Pyramid’s three floors are multifaceted and designed to hit all your senses. Upon entering, color, texture, shape, sight, sound, and smell put you in a place for relaxation. On the first floor is the marketplace for specialty items, salt cave, treatment rooms, and a lounge area; the second floor has a lending library, offices, other treatment rooms, and the Cairo club; and the third floor is the studio where classes are held, i.e., yoga, dance, thai chi, and more—all for only $6. The menu of services include massage therapy, reflexology, homeopathic doctor on site, Reiki and other energy work, acupuncture, personal fitness training, mental health counseling, hypnotherapy, classes, workshops, and performances, healthy snacks, coffees, teas, and animal wellness services. Smeichowski, originally from Poland and a trained medical doctor, has been practicing Western medicine for 20 years and researching salt caves for the past seven years. Although such caves are not as well-known in the U.S. as in Europe, Smeichowski has been requisitioned to build “caves” in Cape Cod, Georgia, and Illinois. “Himalayan salt is known to be the purest salt containing all of the essential minerals,” said Smiechowski, “The hand-mined Pakistan salt is antibacterial, anti-viral anti-

fungal, and anti-inflammatory to cleanse and purify the air around us. The salt combats the signs of aging cellulite, hearing issues, blood pressure, respiratory problems, and much more. “The body is like the core engine; and if you put something not good into, it will struggle to run properly,” Smiechowski added. “It is not my responsibility to keep you healthy. I’m here to educate and have you take action. Symptoms are covered up by quick fix medications, which mask and do not eliminate the root of the problem.” Entering the cave is an adventure not to be missed. You must first remove your shoes. It’s like walking on a sandy beach except a bit more gravelly—there are over 8,000 pounds of salt in the cave. Subdued lighting, stars on the ceiling, and miscellaneous decorations set the atmosphere. When you recline in the anti-gravity chair, your breathing automatically regulates in tune with the soothing copyright narrative and composed electronic New Age music by Kelley. This is an excerpt: “You are about to embark on a journey of relaxation and wellness—a journey that began millions of years ago near present-day Nepal and Pakistan. Far below the Himalayan mountain range, the world’s purest salts were formed as the energy of the Sun dried up the primal sea, uncontaminated by any environmental toxins or pollutants. “Individual salt products

are extremely beneficial and spending time in a salt mine multiplies the benefits of salt for the human body, creating a power-burst of wellness. Himalayan salt naturally contains 84 minerals, and the air in a salt cave is saturated with salt and minerals. “Despite the benefits for all humans in spending time in salt mines, salt cave treatments have mostly only been available in Europe until now. Because of modern technology, we have brought the salt cave experience here to Vermont. “Our cave is climate-controlled to maintain the perfect temperature and humidity to maximize the release of the minerals into the air.” A session in the cave is a minimum of an hour for only $10, a worthwhile investment to instantly relieve stress and other ailments. The Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center and The Salt Cave celebrated its second anniversary in August 2009. The original cave downtown had been flooded, and the current one had been rebuilt from November 2008 with completion in time for Valentine’s Day 2009. The Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center and Salt Cave hours are Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For further information call 775-8080, visit the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center and Salt Cave, 120 Merchants Row in downtown Rutland or check out the website at

The strange case of the tardigrade


fologists claim that the U.S. government is conspiring to keep secret alien spacecraft technology. Troubled medical patients have told psychologists about their alleged abductions by mysterious bulbheaded ETs. While this writer is a flying saucer and “close encounter” skeptic, there are lifeforms living on the Earth that beg the question: “What exactly is an extraterrestrial?” For example, could some unusually rugged microscopic lifeforms found on Earth have arrived on this planet from elsewhere? And if they evolved on Earth, why do they exhibit survival traits for environments not found anywhere on the Earth? Several microscopic critters alive today defy conventional ideas about the survivability of terrestrial life in space— Let’s take a look at a funny looking microscopic tardigrade, commonly called the water piglet or water bear. Tardigrades were discovered in pond water samples by Johann Goeze in 1773. Goeze called them Gleiner Wasserbär, a German term for Little Water Bear. Indeed, tardigrades look like miniature, cartoon bears; they are water animals which live their lives in and around bodies of water. The Latin name tardigrada means “slow walker”—these six-legged critters have a gait that looks like an animated Disney bear ’s walk. Of course water bears aren’t anywhere near the size of mammalian bears we’re familiar with; the biggest Gleiner Wasserbär is only 1.5 mm in length. If we didn’t know tardigrades were terrestrial creatures, we might take them to be tiny extraterrestrial visitors that hitched a ride to Earth on an extrasolar meteorite. Tardigrades are what biologists call polyextremophiles— that is, they can live in extreme environments that would otherwise kill other animals. In Russian experiments, tradigrades have been found to survive temperatures close to absolute zero; they also survive temperatures up to 300°F. In other experiments, tardigrades waddled happily through a radiation bath 1,000 times more deadly than an atomic bomb blast. Also, tardigardes discovered in 100year-old dessicated mud deposits were reanimated and brought back to life by researchers. Even more bizarre are tardigrades that have survived the deadly vacuum of space! According to biologist W.N. Gabriel, “In September 2007, tardigrades were taken into low Earth orbit aboard the RussianESA FOTON-M3 mission. For 10 days the creatures were exposed to the vacuum of space. After they were returned to Earth, it was discovered that many of them survived and laid eggs that hatched normally, making these the only animals shown to be able to survive the vacuum of space.”

Here are two questions about the tardigan that puzzle most researchers: How could a terrestrial lifeform evolve to survive exposure to the vacuum and high energy radiation of space? Why did tardigrades evolve an ability to survive a century in a kind of dehydrated suspended animation (especially when it already lives in watery environments with no geohistory of drought?) Were these microscopic creatures, and others like them, exposed to the environment of space in ancient times? Is that why they evolved such extreme environmental survival mechanisms? What evolutionary factors influenced this polyextremophile to endure the extremes of outer space when it appears to have originated here on planet Earth? There is no clear solution to the tardigan mystery at this time. What’s in the Sky: This week and next, view two of the stars in Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi saga “Dune”—Giedi Prime and Secundus. The stars are in the constellation Capricorn in the southwest; other objects are M75 and the asteroid Iris, a recent find. The Moon hovers above the horizon in the crescent phase.

Couponing's Best-Kept Secrets: Don't Believe Everything You See


ne of the most common misconceptions about coupons is that the item that you buy must match the picture that appears on the face of the coupon. It's true that you can use the coupon to purchase the item that's pictured. However, you want to pay close attention to the text on a coupon, too. After all, the text contains the precise information that the coupon's bar code is programmed to deliver at the checkout counter. Which brings us to this week's tip.

Super-Couponing Secret: Forget the Photos, Read the Fine Print It's a very common marketing technique for a manufacturer to show a new or more expensive variety of a product on the face of a coupon in the hope that you will buy this new or more expensive variety. If you read the coupon, though, you'll discover that the offer is good for "$1 off any [brand] product." Consider a coupon for a new variety of cold medicine put out by a leading manufacturer. The coupon may show the new, multi-symptom medicine in the picture, hoping that you will want to try it, but the text states clearly that you can use the coupon on any medicine from this manufacturer. Learning to distinguish between what the photo suggests and the full terms of the deal that the text actually spells out is a skill that can really help shoppers, giving us more freedom to buy the item we may prefer versus the variety shown in the photo. I recently had a coupon for a new variety of skin-care product. It showed a photo of the lotion, and the text read "$1 off [brand] lotion, body wash, or any [brand] product." That wording is key! When I didn't see a good sale for the company's lotions or body wash, I did see a bar of the same brand of soap - for 99 cents. With my coupon, it was free. Brand-name sandwich meat is an area where it can pay to read coupon wording closely. People often ask me how to save at the deli counter. It's not always easy to get discounts on fresh-cut cold cuts. But many meat manufacturers sell pre-packaged deli meats, too, and there are often coupons for those. Look closely at the wording on these

coupons. While the coupon may show a boxed or bagged variety of meat, the wording often spells out a wider deal, such as "$1 off 1 package of [brand] sliced By Jill Cataldo meat, or 1lb. of [brand] sliced meats at the deli." These coupons are a great way to save on fresh-sliced meats of the same brand at the deli counter. Ready for another tip? This one involves brand loyalty. While we all have favorite brands of things, our brand loyalty can cost us in the long run if we aren't shopping smart for those favorite-brand items when they're on sale. Major brands often engage in what the industry calls "price wars" with one another. We see this frequently with items such as pasta sauce, where numerous brands compete to sell what is essentially the same product. Brand A may be cheap one week, but next week Brand B barrels in with an even lower price. This works out well for shoppers who aren't particularly partial to any specific brand. But, if we think "I really like Brand A, and I will always buy it no matter what," it's great when Brand A is on sale for $1.29 a jar and we've got a 75-cent coupon for it. But when the sale ends and Brand A goes back up to $3.29 a jar, we'll be paying the price. If we can let some of our brand preferences slide a little bit and fluctuate along with the sales, we can save more money in the long run. Next week, I'll share one of the biggest and most surprising tips with you. It involves which days of the week are the least expensive days to shop at the grocery store. You might be surprised to learn what they are! © CTW Features

The No Child Left Behind lawsuit


t’s often said—in both criticism and defense of the American legal system—that anyone can sue anyone else. Of course there are a few exceptions to the rule: one exception is the concept of sovereign immunity, the modern description of the feudal rule that the king can do no wrong. This has been adopted for political safety and legal shelter by all levels of contemporary government—just look at the recent events in Berkshire as an example. Another exception to the “sue anyone” rule arises when a court declines to hear a case. This has just happened in a suit against the feds brought by a handful of states—proudly led by Vermont and proudly championed by former RNESU school superintendent William Mathis. (The suit demands and argues on behalf of public education for—no surprise—more money.) Mathis based his argument on the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, Public Law 104-4, which was adopted in 1995 to quell taxpayer negative response to a number of federal demands; these demands stated that private citizens must make public investments without reimbursement; for example, that businessowners must rebuild their existing facilities to meet new federal handicap access requirements. The lawsuit just noted is aimed at the No Child Left Behind legislation of 2001 which requires that public education do a better job of public education as measured in basic school subjects such as reading and math via the annual National Assessment of Educational Progress tests. Federal involvement in education comes as the Big String attached to federal money for schools—maybe ten percent of typical school budgets. Whether public schools could reject this money, cut the Big String, and teach as they wish is a legal question which hasn’t yet been legally argued. However, there’s one successful example of private education already doing just that: Hillsdale College in Michigan. Of course, there’s always home schooling and non-public education, both small but growing sectors of the school-choice spectrum; both typically produce students far more literate and numerate than their public school peers. (This fact is strongly demonstrated by SAT tests and in-college results.) The NAEP tests have been around since 1969 with their typically dismal student test-score findings published every year in the National Digest of Educational Statistics. The scores, in such subjects as mathematics and reading, have typically been in the mid-200s. For example, if you look at table 112 in the 2007 NDES (it covers the years 1971 to 2004) showing 4th graders in reading, they went from 208 to 219 (out of a possible 500), while 8th graders went from 255 to 259; and 11th graders went from 285 to—drumroll—285! These numbers equate to proficiency percentages in the low-20s to high 40s range; for example, Vermont 8th grade students came in at 42 percent proficient (that is, able to function at grade level) in 2007. No one in education cared much about these percentages as long as the test scores were deep-sixed and went unpublished to the taxpaying public, but that changed with a key part of NCLB that required: 1.) that public schools get almost all of their students to “proficient” by 2014, and 2.) from 2002 on each school must demonstrate measurable Annual Yearly Progress, as measured by improvements in NAEP test score results, towards that goal. (As an aside: to this day, the Vermont NAEP scores still aren’t posted on the public education website—wonder why?) The lawsuit mentioned above also takes a curious direction: it argues that nowhere in a contemporary educator’s job-description is the actual requirement (or expectation) that he/she get a specific number or percentage of his/her students to “proficient” and that, therefore, the new and offensive NCLB requirement is really an unfunded mandate as prohibited by P.L. 104-4. In contrast to military education—if the student didn’t learn, it’s because the teacher didn’t teach—or private education with various modes of student evaluation of instructors, public educators are adamant in rejecting student achievement as an indicator of teacher competence. Indeed, there are substantial sectors of the student body which can’t or won’t achieve “proficient” for reasons of intelligence, environment, or attitude which have been heavily discussed in the professional literature. In contrast, public education doctrine professes that all students are teachable. Note that the lawsuit doesn’t argue that teachers couldn’t get all their students to “proficient” if they wanted to, even the seemingly intractable sub-groups now dragging overall test scores down; it argues that with more money, they could do just that. Without more money, it just isn’t possible to make the effort, but with more money, it is. In the interim, public education apparently recognizes that it has a credibility problem similar to home appliance producers: “Don’t expect all your in-home devices to work as implied by our assurances of excellence when sold and so all states–except Nebraska—have purchased and deployed alternative tests, easier than NAEP, on which higher percentages of students miraculously make proficient. A recent lengthy Wall Street Journal article (Oct. 30, 2009) describes how the feds are forcing correlation of such easier tests as NECAP with the national standard: to show how much deception is underway, with implication—if not a direct promise—that such devices won’t go unchallenged. You have to agree with the lawsuit originators dismissing the judicial dismissal of their case: this argument isn’t over any time soon. Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

Curbstone Chorus To the editor: The Rutland Curbstone Chorus would like to express a sincere "thank you" for the tremendous support and praise that we received this past Saturday evening of Oct. 17. We presented our First Annual A-Cappella Extravaganza, and it was attended by, a sold out, standing room only, very vocal audience. We can not begin to find the words, that speak to the overwhelming feeling of gratitude, pride and excitement, that this audience of wonderful Rutland county concertgoers gave to us Saturday evening. We too, want to thank the many performers from the chorus' of Saratoga Springs N.Y., Hanover N.H., and Burlington who also contributed, to help make this a most enjoyable evening. The memorable grand finale had all 130 barbershoppers on stage, all singing great barbershop harmony together, to the delight of everyone in the full house. That was probably a first, ever, for Rutland. We need to also thank the many volunteers, the gracious program sponsors, and everyone who played any part in bringing about this outstanding production. The Rutland Curbstone Chorus is truly honored, and sincerely humbled, to be recognized for it's achievements. The many accolades of praise, heard Saturday night, are indeed, extremely rewarding and certainly appreciated by everyone in the Curbstone Chorus. We look forward to future performances, the upcoming holiday season, and to entertaining the Rutland area music lovers. Again, thank you to everyone for your gift of pride, that you have given to the Rutland Curbstone Chorus. Dick Nordmeyer Performance Manager Castleton

Champlain Bridge scandal To the editor: Where were the 'inspectors'?? As everyone knows, the Lake Champlain Bridge at Crown Point has been closed. Understandably so. If it is dangerous, by all means close it. There are two points I would like to make about it's closing. 1. This past summer, the bridge was reduced to on-lane traffic because it was deemed unsafe for so much 'tonnage'. How can we go from tonnage traffic to banning even pedestrian traffic in a blink of an eye? Either someone misread the condition of the bridge in early summer '09 or there was a catastrophic deterioration of the bridge in a few short months. You mean we were driving across a bridge that wasn't even safe for pedestrians? My bet is it was the former. Which begs the obvious question; Who, where were the so called VTrans inspectors that are responsible for inspecting this bridge? Are they not responsible for the safety of the infrastructure in Vermont? I wrote a letter to the editor a few weeks back where I stated that the issue of the Middlebury downtown bridge was ignored by VTrans so that the Middlebury Selectboard had to impose an 'optional' tax to pay for their bridge. Here is another example of VTrans and the politicians in Montpelier ignoring infrastructure needs. 2) Knowing that this bridge is a critical link between New York and Vermont, why was there not a contingency plan in place to erect a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers floating bridge just in case this bridge had to be closed? The ACE can erect one of these bridges in a matter of a few days. Let's face it, there is no ferry that can handle 3,400 vehicles per day. Seems to me that there are lot of people getting paid for work they are not doing. Burt DeGraw Bristol

The joy of life D

o you go dancing much? I mean, you know, trip the light fantastic sort of dancing? Cut the rug and jitterbug? Not a mosh pit, not ball room, certainly not watching people on T.V. I mean jump, swing, twist, shout out with your lungs dancing. I love that kind of dancin! I attend a dance party about once a week. The music is not too loud, but the yells and screams make up for it. Some of my favorite songs are “Ring of Fire”, “Paper Doll”, and “This Old House.” I suppose this, like many of our habits started in college. We used to go to a place called the Haunt on Saturday nights. It was five bucks to get in, but on Saturday nights they only played classic ‘80s songs. Man, I would dance and twist ‘til they closed and we’d walk on home! Since my alma mater was in upstate New York, this often meant a very cold walk in winter. But youth being youth, I didn’t care. Thankfully now, the dance party only goes until about 7:30 p.m., and we end it by saying, “Ok, kids—that’s it, time for bed.” Much to the sadness seen in their faces, the nightly duty of teeth being brushed and pajamas being put on begins, and the music fades away. Our family dance party really is more like jumping than dancing, but there are no judges to tell us we are doing something wrong—just good old fashion fun. It seems to me that the point of the dance party is to hold the ankles of one of the kids swing them around a time or two and drop them on the soft couch. (My wife has yet to allow me to try this move on her, but I’m sure with the kids help we could do it.) By this point, you must be wondering: how in the world

The Logger’s holiday variety show hits the road Comedian to visit Paramount Theatre After a hiatus of three years, comedian Rusty DeWees’ Logger Holiday Variety Show is touring Vermont for the 2009-2010 holidays. Shows will be staged at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland, and at the South Burlington and Stowe high schools. “I performed in Maine and New Hampshire a bunch, and I wrote a book, “Scrawlins”—a collection of my Eagle and Rutland Tribune newspaper columns—which left no time to put a holiday show together the past three years. People have been missing the show and they tell me it’s a family holiday tradition. So we’ve been working almost a year on this Holiday show, and tell you what, it’s going to be a rig the folks don’t want to miss,” DeWees said. Audiences familiar with the Logger ’s variety show will get to meet French Canadian Uncle Furmon—again. Everybody’s favorite uncle will be in the show more than ever before as he dances and prances to the audience’s delight (drunk on life and cheap hooch). Champion fiddler Don Commo and five-time Emmy Award winning guitarist Peter Wilder —along with Rusty on guitar and drums—will be doing the heavy lifting for the variety show’s full slate of musical numbers. The Logger ’s Holiday Variety Show is a face paced, smooth flowing, collection of comedy, dancing, and music, that harken back to days when the entire family would sit around the television in the living room (Yes, people actually used their living rooms), and enjoy an evening of entertainment together. Think Dean Martin, Sonny and Cher, and Carol Burnett— the 1960s and 1970s style family variety television shows that America tuned into. Add Rusty’s familiar Logger style comedy stories, and a pair of Vermont’s most talented guest stars (singer Keeghan Nolan and dancer Kerry Izzo), and you have a full show for the whole family. “Yeah, these gals, Keeghan and Kerry are talented like you won’t believe,” said DeWees. ”They’re going to bring the house down.” Among the songs Nolan will sing is “Sparks Fly” for which she won first place at CMA’s Rising Vocal Competition in Nashville, Tenn. “I’m very lucky to have the ladies in the show,” he said. Which of course makes you and your family lucky too, when you all go to the Logger ’s Holiday Variety Show—a Vermonter holiday tradition. This holiday season the curtain will rise at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland, South Burlington High School, and Stowe High School. The show is rated SC for Some Cussin’ and is appropriate for the entire family. Show schedule: •Paramount Theatre, Rutland, Nov. 27-28, at 8 p.m. •South Burlington High School, Dec 11-12,18-19 at 8 p.m., and Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. •Stowe High School, Dec 31 and Jan 1-2 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.

“Building Our Community One Project At A Time”

can I turn this dancing story into a spiritual lesson? To be honest, I’m sort of wondering that myself. I do not know what you enjoy By Rev. Erron Hubbell doing, what your hobbies are, what you did as a child, but somehow you involve your kids in your joys, your fun. You spend time with your kids, beyond the time of discipline and instruction. Your tone of correction will mean so much more when they have also heard your tone of enjoyment. Have your kids heard your screams of triumph at a ball game? Have they heard the excitement in your voice over your last hunting trip? Mothers, have you talked to your girls about the joys in your own life? In Deuteronomy 6:4-9 we are told that we are to “impress them (God’s commandments) on our children.” To impress something, it works best when what you’re pressing on is soft, pliable, and accepting. Parents, see these times of fun, laughter, enjoyment with your kids as times when you soften your children up to receive God’s commands. Don’t just soften them up—impress upon them God’s commandments. Impress upon them God’s everlasting way, so that they will step with you On His Course.

Kids and fever


arents have been hot to ask me when to worry about their infant or toddler having a fever. Well, let me try to cool down everyone’s concern and provide some information on this topic. First you need to understand that fever is not a disease. It is a symptom that points to an insult - usually infectious-- in your child’s body. Second, you need to know that when your body’s temperature is elevated, your body is able to kill germs better. So, if fever is a symptom that can help us figure out what is wrong with your child, and germs get killed more quickly if the body’s temperature is elevated, is there any reason we cannot simply smile and say in many respects “fever is our friend”? Yet, when your child is hot and irritable with a fever you may not always view fever as your friend, so let me make some suggestions that might help with this problem. First, if your child is under a month or two of age and has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, then please call your baby’s doctor to have them examined. The doctor will determine if the baby has a serious problem such as a bacterial infection. He or she will likely recommend further tests often involving checking for infection in their blood, urine, chest, or spinal fluid, and if meningitis is a concern, since fever may be the only clue your baby is seriously ill. Second, if your child is over a few months of age and has been immunized, then we really don’t want to know the the specific height of the fever, just that your child has a fever. We will however, want to know how your infant or toddler is breathing and acting, and whether they are staying hydrated. If you are concerned about any of these things in addition to the fever, your pediatrician will want to see your child no matter what the number is on the thermometer. If they are breathing ok, and appear otherwise well but hot, then keep them hydrated and not too overactive. You can also give them acetaminophen or ibuprofen to reduce their temperature and irritability. As to sponge baths to bring down the temperature, use lukewarm rather than cool water since cool water will make your child shiver and drive the temperature higher. Please do not give your febrile child an alcohol bath, even if you got one when growing up, since we now know that these can cause drops in blood sugar and even a serious convulsion. So, no alcohol baths for your hot tot. Hopefully, tips like these will burn brightly in your minds so you can stay calm, cool, and collected the next time your young child has a fever.

GUESTVIEWPOINT Leahy’s bench press


nder the Senate Judiciary Committee as run by Patrick Leahy, even plans on which the two parties have previously agreed to collaborate disintegrate into partisanship. Witness his effort to expand the federal judiciary now that President Obama can pick the new judges. The original version of the Federal Judgeship Act, proposed in March 2008 and co-sponsored by Utah Republican Orrin Hatch, was supposed to give both parties a say in the composition of an expanded federal judiciary. Then the election results would determine which party's President got to nominate the judges. The idea was to pass a plan and then have it go into effect after the inauguration of the election winner in 2008. It had bipartisan support. Yet with a Democratic president now in the White House, Mr. Leahy wants to be sure Mr. Obama gets to do the picking-and not wait until the next election. His plan would create nine additional permanent appeals-court judgeships in five circuits, including two on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in the Northeast and four on the overstretched Ninth in the West. It would also create three more temporary appeals court judgeships-seats that would last for 10 years through either 2019 or 2020. On the federal district courts, which are a step below the appellate bench, the Leahy bill would create another 38 permanent and 13 temporary judges. There's little question that several circuits could benefit from more judges. Some circuits in the South have seen a surge of immigration cases. The Ninth Circuit encompasses such a broad and geographically diverse group of states that some have suggested it be split into two. According to the Judicial Conference's Executive Chairman, Judge An-

thony Scirica, district court case loads have gone up by 27 percent since 1990, with appeals courts now burdened by a 45 percent heavier case load. In remarks on Sept. 30, Mr. Leahy said he is "unmoved" by demands to delay the effective date until after the next Presidential election in 2012, arguing that his bill is meant to address "current needs". But the need for more judges wouldn't be so urgent if Mr. Leahy didn't make it so hard to confirm nominees. There are 94 vacancies on the federal courts with only 16 nominees pending to fill them. On the Second Circuit, for which the Leahy plan would create more judges, three vacancies are open without any nominees at all. One reason there are so many vacancies is because Mr. Leahy stonewalled so many nominees in the Bush years. Third Circuit nominees Shalom Stone and Paul Diamond waited 536 and 163 days, respectively, for the Judiciary Committee to act. In the First Circuit, slated for a new permanent appellate judge under Mr. Leahy's plan, William Smith waited for 384 days, despite the seat's designation as a judicial emergency. So did such top-flight nominees as Peter Keisler for the D.C. Circuit and Robert Conrad, Steve Matthews and Glen Conrad for the Fourth Circuit, which often handles national security cases. Congress hasn't passed major legislation to address the logjam on the federal bench since 1990, and getting more judges onto high-traffic courts would be good for efficient justice. But Mr. Leahy's attempt to pack the courts with extra Democrats is a partisan power play that Republicans should do everything in their power to stop.

GUESTVIEWPOINT It’s Obama’s war now


e must never again squander the blood of patriots with a half-hearted attempt at war.

It is dangerous, counter-productive and immoral to fight a war with just enough troops to agitate our foes without a sufficient commitment to ensure victory. We must soundly defeat those who attack us while simultaneously establishing basic security and economic stability for the civilian population. Ignoring the civilian suffering only creates hatred among a long-suffering people caught up in the throes of war. Civilians who hate us become enemies who fight us. It is the surest route to a bloody and debilitating defeat. Despite all of the odds stacked against us in Iraq, we have achieved success in Iraq, especially in Ramadi and the rest of Al Anbar Province. We have done so by a multifaceted approach. First, we have conducted decisive military action and thoroughly defeated the enemy in battle. Second, we have worked with, rather than against, the Iraqi people’s own natural leaders in re-establishing basic security and some degree of economic stability. It is imperative to follow up tactical victories by removing the conditions which motivate future attacks. We have learned a lot in Iraq, and we can not ignore these lessons in Afghanistan. Our troops have fought hard and sacrificed much in an uphill battle to defeat an enemy defined not by geographic borders, but by it’s ideological commitment to the destruction of our nation. We have learned that we can not remain isolated on our bases while the civilians around us suffer at the hands of terrorists. We must establish a protective, cooperative presence among the people. The challenge in establishing basic security is to do so in a way that respects and supports the people’s natural leadership and fosters self-reliance. The efforts of our military must eventually be carried on by the Afghans themselves.

If we instead remain aloof and isolated, relying solely on aerial strikes with unmanned drones, the civilians will see only bloodshed and never the compassionate face of an American soldier standing with them to improve life in their remote villages. While well-placed aerial strikes are a vital part of our overall strategy, they are only one part of it. During the Vietnam War, we saw the results of allowing partisan politics to define our battlefield strategies. The time and place for deciding whether to fight a war rests with our civilian political leadership. Once they decide to fight, victory is our goal. Defeat is not an option. We must collectively stand behind our soldiers and support their efforts, not micromanage them into a defeat. Gen. Stanley McChrystal is our battlefield commander in Afghanistan. He is in the best position to assess our efforts and refine our strategy and define the resources he needs to accomplish the mission set before him. As unpleasant as it is to send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan, we must win this fight. Our nation was attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, not by a geographically defined nation, but rather by a radical ideology which runs counter to everything we hold dear. We must defeat our attackers every time, and on every level. Not only must we stop those who attack America, we must remove the motivation of those who contemplate future attacks. Victory in Afghanistan will go far to prevent future attacks on our own soil. Defeat will embolden our enemies and fuel further attacks on our nation. May God bless America. Thomas A.

CASTLETON — Applewood Manor Bed & Breakfast of Castleton, Vermont has been selected as a Best in New England in the annual Best of Awards. Applewood is The original Applewood house in Castleton the sole Vermont was built by Noah Hoyt, younger brother of recipient of this Nehemiah Hoyt (Hoit), one of the first setprestigious tlers who came to town as a single man in award for 2009- 1771. 10, aN accomplishment after only three years of business. The Best of Awards are based upon a qualitative and quantitative review of the nearly 100,000 independent reviews submitted to, the leading online B&B directory and reservation network worldwide. The original Applewood house was built by Noah Hoyt, younger brother of Nehemiah Hoyt (Hoit), one of the first settlers who came to Castleton as a single man in 1771. As a Green Mountain Boy, Nehemiah assisted in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga; he was the third man to enter the fort following Col. Ethan Allen. The historic house remained in the Hoyt family until the mid-20th century, with the widow of John Hoyt, great grandson of the original builder, being the last member of the Hoyt family to live in the house. Since then, only two other families have owned the house before current owners Ralph Hirschfeld and Nancy Cameron purchased it in 2004. Within walking distance of Castleton village, Applewood offers Vermont comfort, hospitality, and history dating back to the 1780s. The manor includes original brick and marble fireplaces grace the public rooms, and screened porch and patios. Each of the five guest bedrooms has a private bathroom, deluxe mattresses, and beautifully-appointed furnishings. Breakfasts are served in a charming dining-room where, in winter time, guests enjoy the warmth and ambience of a real fire. Surrounded by picture postcard-perfect Vermont scenery, the 33-acre property offers spacious lawns, New England landscaping, a swimming pool, and woodland walks.

Paul Duquette, chief of the Newport Police Department, Thomas Tremblay, commissioner of the Vermont Department of Public Safety, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Tom L’Esperance of the Vermont State Police. PITTSFORD — Approximately $944,000 in taxpayer funding will be made available for state law enforcement and first responders. The Vermont Department of Public Safety will receive $506,000 to improve communications equipment and technology. Another $250,000 will allow the Vermont State Police to take advantage of the most advanced in-cruiser camera technology available, according to Col.

Elrick, director of the Vermont Police Academy, Paul Duquette, chief of the Newport Police Department, Lamoille County Sheriff Roger Marcoux and Al Barber chief of the Hinesburg Volunteer Fire Department.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury-based physical trainer Nick Lynch, CFT, SSC, is betting that a lot more Vermonters are going to get in better physical shape in the coming new year. In fact, Lynch— who turns age 25 this week— is sure those Vermonters are going to need personal training assistance and a tangible plan to achieve their personal bests. To support his physical Nick Lynch working out. training hunch, Lynch rePhoto courtesy Nick Lynch cently created a unique, Internet-based personal training “center” called Superb Health. The enterprise also includes family members who are also skilled health professionals. “This kind of thing has never been done on the Internet before,” Lynch said. “We make it painless to see tangible progress in a physical fitness program. All you need is a computer and Internet connection.” Lynch’s website is a one-of-kind fitness, nutrition and chiropractic website that puts him a commanding position in the field of “hybrid” fitness training. On the website, you’ll find a variety of exercise routines, healthy food and cooking suggestions from the Superb Health nutritionist, and even lifestyle, vitamin, and body insight from the website’s chiropractor, brother Jim Lynch of Montpelier. “We all have different beliefs on how to gain and maintain health and happiness. Unfortunately, many of us have come to believe that achieving health and happiness through proper exercise and diet is not convenient,” Lynch said. “That’s why I created Superb Health—I want to make achieving health and happiness, through proper exercise and nutrition, a lot easier.” Lynch said his program combines “dynamic exercise routines, proper nutrition, and chiropractic advice”. “ allows you to achieve optimal mental and physical well-being,” he said. Lynch’s interactive website includes easy-to-view exercise videos; you can also chat with’s Vermontbased health professionals. This writer signed up for Lynch’s one-day free trail. There was enough good guidance to inspire and entice one to join the full membership option. “Our mission is for this website to grow and progress,” Lynch said. “So come on in—it’s really a new way to health and it’s just a click away.” According to Lynch, website members will be able to track their progress with the a notebook feature. You can also contact the Superb Health professionals in the chat room when you feel lost, have questions, need a pep talk, or feel like talking with other members of the site. “Everyday of the week there will be a health professional live in our chatroom to talk with you and offer insights. This web site is a safe place for developing a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life. All of the people working on this web site are happy, healthy, and passionate individuals who enjoy working with people,” Lynch said. Lynch has been slowly building his customer base and visibility in Vermont. In September, Superb Health co-sponsored a 5K race in Vermont to benefit Special Olympics. Other sponsors included Lynch Family Chiropractic and Black Diamond sportswear. Healthy food at the run was provided by Turkey Hill Farm in Randolph, Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex, and Champlain Valley Apiaries in Middlebury. Lynch hopes more local businesses will get involved in next year ’s 5K. The race will also help raise awareness of Superb Health’s mission to get Vermonters in shape.
