The Central Vermont Prostate Cancer Support Group (Man to Man) has been providing community based education and support for cancer patients and their family members for nearly 15 years. Fred Cook of Montpelier, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1996 and underwent successful surgery, subsequently decided to form a local chapter of the American Cancer Society sponsored program. During the ensuing months, Cook laid the groundwork for opening the local Man to Man chapter in January 1998 at Central Vermont Medical Center. He and early volunteers helped organize these monthly meetings where speakers and participants discuss information about prostate cancer, its treatment options, possible side effects and how to cope with cancer as a new survivor. According to Cook, the needs of the individual survivor drive the agendas at monthly Man to Man meetings. Health care professionals from throughout the area are invited in to offer their expertise as part of further cancer education and personal survival strategies. It soon becomes apparent that beyond learning of available treatments, the individual will benefit first and foremost from early detection. Later the role of nutrition in achieving a balanced diet, stress removal and regular exercise become central to a healthy lifestyle as cancer survivors adjust to living in a cancerfree environment. After nearly 15 years as an activist for cancer awareness, Cook is retiring from the leadership role of coordinator for the local Man to Man group and will be turning the reins over to a future successor. He has termed the experience as one of the most rewarding of his entire life. Information about volunteering to lead this established cancer support group may be obtained by contacting Leigh Sampson, American Cancer Society, 55 Day Lane, Williston, VT 05495, 802-372-6320, or by email at, or by calling Fred Cook at 223-2933.

Mid-Winter Sale

Pianist Diane Huling gives the second concert in her series of Pianist-Composers as part of the Bethany Center for the Arts series at Bethany Church in Montpelier, Sunday, February 12th at 3pm. This program, titled, Affinities: friends and admirers, focuses on composer/pianists who either knew personally and admired the represented composers, or admired them as fellow pianists or composers from afar. Hulings 2011-2012 season paints a virtuosic and passionate overview of the piano, with the performer as hero (or in this case, heroine) from the first keyboardists who encouraged its beginnings, such as Bach, Handel and Scarlatti, onward through the repertoire of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Liszt and into the 20th century grandeur, color and spectacle of Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Ginastera and Scriabin. Pianists of the highest technical level, they essentially wrote music for their own performances. A breed alone, these virtuosi pushed musical, harmonic and stylistic boundaries in a Golden Age of solo piano playing that continues to this day. This recital includes music of Mozarts A minor Sonata, K. 330, the Chopin sonata in B minor, three of Mendelssohns Songs Without

Diane Huling Plays Recital Number Two: Affinities

Words and Bachs Toccata and Fugue in d minor, originally written for organ and transcribed by Busoni. Its been a challenge, playing music written by great pianists of the last three centuries, says Huling. There are a lot of notes! But in addition to the technical challenges, she says there are considerations for the original instruments, which were very different from todays pianos. Today, there are many, many different pianos that have many different qualities, from tone to pedal mechanisms and key action. To make something cohesive, respectful to the composer and yet exciting for todays audiences is the ultimate in the creative process. However, its truly magical, finding the musical threads that connect the different composers. For example, Chopins favorite composers were Bach and Mozart, and you can hear that in his writing. Mendelssohn and Chopin were friends and admirers of each others music and there are some similarities in their music as well.

Vermont Team Competes in Superbowl of Birding

The skies were clear and the weather warm for the Superbowl recently, only it was birds flying instead of footballs. From 5am to 5pm, teams of birdwatchers looked high and low for as many different types (or species) of birds as they could find along the Massachusetts coast. For the fourth year, a team of adults and youths from Vermont participated, sponsored by the North Branch Nature Center of Montpelier. The night before the competition, the team (called the North Branch Noddies) carefully planned their route for the following day. In addition to being experts of the local birdlife, teams must devise clever strategies to ensure they are in the right places at the right times to see the most birds. Each species is assigned a point-value based on the how difficult it is to find (1 point being easiest and 5 points being hardest). So, while a chickadee is worth just one point, a Snowy Owl is worth three, and a Townsends Warbler is worth five points. Alarm clocks rang at 4am on the morning of the competition, and by 5am the team was poised and ready at their secret owl spot. By 5:15am they had their first two points, for an Eastern Screech-Owl calling in the distance. Scouring the rocky shoreline of Cape Ann, the Noddies continued to rack up points through the morning hours. Many species of birds that breed in the arctic spend the winter months off the New England coast, which for them, is considered south for the winter. The obligate trip to the fish pier added several rare species of gulls as they fought over fish scraps on the docks. A

pair of Peregrine Falcons watched from afar, perched atop the distant church steeple. The mild weather certainly played a role in the birdlife encountered. Lakes and ponds with open water meant an abundance of waterfowl that typically vacate in winter, such as Northern Pintails, Ruddy Ducks, and American Coots. Even some insectivores were toughing it out on the coast this winter including a Gray Catbird and a rare vagrant Townsend's Warbler, seen gleaning insects from the needles of a tall spruce tree. Slowly working their way north, by late afternoon the Noddies had reached Plum Island, considered one of the finest birding locales in New England. Here, on the rolling sand dunes and extensive marshes, the Noddies would complete their quest. From a single spot along the main road, two Snowy Owls could be seen sitting upon the barren, snowless landscape. A flock of hundreds of shorebirds chased the breaking waves along the beach. And as the sky became infused with pink and purple at dusk, a Short-eared Owl could be seen cruising the fields, hunting under the shadows of the setting sun.

Singers, dancers, story and joke tellers, musicians, actors and just plain hams of all ages - youre all welcome to strut your stuff on the stage of the Valley Players Theater, Rte 100 in Waitsfield. Auditions are on Wednesday, February 15, from 6:30 to 7:30pm. If youve been on before, just give Director, Doug Bergstein (496-6651) a call and let him know what you are up to. Also, if you cant make auditions and want to be on stage or want some help and suggestions, give him a call.

Anybody have a magic act? The Players would love to see you. So, dust off your tap shoes, warm up your tonsils and get ready for Cabin Fever Follies.

ally decorated tables. All acts are expected to be on stage all three nights of the show. Volunteers are also needed to be Raisinettes. These are those sign-toting, highly visible walking commercials that raise money for charity each year. This year it is Mad River Valley Flood Recovery. Dressed in Raisinette costumes personally embellished with hats, gloves, sunglasses, tutus and any other bit of nonsense, these intrepid souls trip across the stage bearing signs to the beat of Grapevine. This activity is for those who wish to participate but remain relatively anonymous. Sign makers are also needed! Contact Sharon Kellermann at 583-6767 if that sounds like fun or if you want more information. Cabin Fever Follies shows are Friday through Sunday evenings March 30, 31 and April 1 from 7:30 until about 9:30 or so. Reservations are strongly recommended as the Follies sell out fast. Tickets are $10 and reservations for more than four people must be paid in advance. Tickets will go on sale on February 15 at 5831674. Visit for more information.

am personally grateful to the pioneers of modern psychoanalysis like Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud. Thanks to their successful movement to popularize psychiatry, we all grew up knowing that it is possible to understand ourselves and to use self-analysis as a tool for self-improvement. To be sure, Freud wouldnt have been completely pleased with me. I never actually see a psychiatrist. I figure that my wife and friends are insightful enough to point out the flaws that I cant see for myself. And, call me old-fashioned, but I refuse to pay someone more than $100 an hour unless that person is providing me either legal services or lap dances. Psychoanalysis is a fascinating science. But it is not an exact science. If there was one indisputably correct way to judge a movie, I could quit my day job. And if there was one perfect method of analyzing the human mind, that perfect psychiatrist would be very busy. But there isnt. A Dangerous Method makes this point beautifully. The great director David Cronenberg introduces us to some of the pioneers in the field of psychoanalysis. And he shows us how each one was brilliant but also deeply flawed. The story follows a tumultuous decade in the life of Dr. Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender). When we meet him in 1906, Jung is focused, bold, idealistic, and a little uptight. Inspired by Freuds theory of The Talking Cure, Jung takes on the tough task of treating Sabina Spielrein: a smart but quite crazy Russian heiress (Keira Knightley). Under Jungs patient, probing questioning, Sabina comes to terms with her deep-seated daddy issues and becomes emotionally dependent on her doctor. Inspired by another of his smart, rich patients, Jung decides to explore his own sexuality and moral limits by engaging in an exciting affair with Sabina.

A Dangerous Method

Email Us!
At the same time, Jung befriends the already famous Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and uses him as a sounding board for his revolutionary theories. The plot of A Dangerous Method is compelling enough, but what makes the movie really interesting is the way that Cronenberg lionizes Jung and Freud while also exposing their ugly flaws. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes where Fassbenders Jung and Mortensens Freud go head to head and attack each others ideas. Jung rightly calls Freud out for his almost childish obsession with sex and his dogmatic belief that sex is the root cause of every one of our emotional issues. Freud rightly condemns Jung for trying to merge the burgeoning science of psychiatry with the kookie pseudoscience of mysticism. It isnt a crime to believe that there is no such thing as a coincidence or that you can sense when things are about to happen. But it certainly doesnt help a truly sick patient to convince him that he is clairvoyant. His experiments in libertine adultery and his bitter disputes with Freud ultimately left Jung desperately unhappy and unsatisfied. But at the same time, they made him a greater psychiatrist. I think that is the meaning of the title A Dangerous Method. But, frankly, Im not sure. The movie brings up a number of thought-provoking questions but doesnt definitively answer any of them. Its my kind of flick. If you dont like the idea of watching old guys with German accents chatting about their dreams, though, A Dangerous Method is not for you.

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets announced recently that its Mobile Poultry Processing Unit has been sold to Lila Bennett and David Robb of Tangletown Farm in Middlesex. The unit was sold via an online auction site, and after a competitive bidding process, the final sale price was $61,000. "Animal welfare is at the heart of Tangletown Farm. This unit will allow us to expand our business, to maintain our high standards of quality, and to play a larger role in Vermont agriculture, said Lila Bennett. With this unit we will be able to humanely slaughter, part, and package chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, and eventually lambs under the watchful eye of a Vermont state inspector. As the new owners, Bennett and Robb are in the process of creating a plan for how the unit will be used going forward. The Vermont Farm Viability Enhancement Program is helping us develop a long-term, working plan that will allow other small Vermont farms to utilize the mobile processing unit, said David Robb. We are pleased to have played a hand in keeping this facility in state." Designed and built in 2008 with a $93,000 investment from the Vermont Legislature and the Castanea Foundation, the mobile unit is first of its kind for farmers to process poultry under state inspection right on the farm. Since it first went on the road in 2009, over 30 farmers have benefited from its services, and it has played an integral role in increasing the availability of local meat at farmers markets, CSAs, and retail

stores. The mobile unit was offered for sale after the original operator chose not to renew his lease. Our Agency is committed to not only reinvesting these funds into the development of additional infrastructure to support Vermont's growing, value-added meat industry, but also to leverage other public and private sector funds in order to access new market opportunities, said Chuck Ross, Secretary of the Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets. We were searching for an entrepreneur to take the reigns with the unit, and Tangletown Farm is exactly the sort of business we hoped would step up. This is a great example of how public funding can prime the pump for the private sector, said Ross. According to Ross, the mobile poultry unit was a good investment for Vermont agriculture. We are pleased with the selling price of $61,000. The unit is three years old, and like all equipment, it has depreciated from its original value. Given that the unit was leased for three years prior to this auction, the economics make sense. The unit did what we intended it to do -- it created new markets for Vermont poultry producers and helped grow our agricultural economy. Tangletown Farm would like to hear from producers interested in utilizing the processing unit. Please direct inquiries to ttownfarm@ or visit them online at

Redistricting Redistricting was the word in the Statehouse last week the once-a-decade process of redrawing all the voting district lines from the local up to the federal level. Since Vermonts population only allows it one, at-large, congressional seat in the US House of Representatives, we miss out on that particular fun. This means all the excitement happens in the Statehouse as our House and Senate lines get redrawn. And ten years ago, it was exciting indeed. There were backroom partisan alliances, betrayals, and loud condemnations of the process on the House oor. High political drama (on a Vermont scale, at any rate). This year, not so much. As in, a 138-4 vote on the House oor and back-slapping self-congratulations from the Democratic House Speaker and the leaders of both the Republican and Progressive House caucuses. The reason, of course, is that unlike a decade past when the Democrats controlled the Senate and the Republicans controlled the House under Speaker Walt Freed, this time the Ds are rmly in control of both houses. With Dems holding all the cards, Republicans and Progressives are motivated to play as nice as possible. In the nal analysis, nothing much changed. While attempts were made ten years ago to favor one party over another (attempts which didnt ultimately amount to anything), this time, nobody seemed to bother. There were changes, of course. Orange-Addison-1 will become Orange-Washington-Addison-1, as Roxbury joins Granville, Randolph, Brookeld and Braintree. Burlingtons districts, as always, will be tweaked. In Rutland County, Rep. Dennis Devereux of Mount Holly and Rep. Eldred French of Shrewsbury will face each other in a redrawn district. The most signicant change may be in Washington-Chittenden-1, where Duxbury is being peeled off to join Washington-7 with the Mad River towns. Although a separate town, Duxbury exists almost like another part of Waterbury, and the idea of putting them in different districts is, to residents, pretty absurd. Ten years ago, it was then-Waterbury Representative Val Vincent who led the Democrats efforts on redistricting, and even when it looked like moving Duxbury into a district with towns a mountain away might help with the overall numbers, she used her position and refused to budge. There will be considerable pressure on Washington County Senators Bill Doyle, Ann Cummings, and Anthony Pollina to recouple Duxbury with Waterbury through Senate action, so the lines may yet change. Speaking of the Senate Eyes now turn to the Senate to see how it plans to redistrict

itself. Perennial calls for breaking up the Chittenden district will once again fall on deaf ears. Those frustrated with the size and inuence of the Chittenden Senate district can take some comfort in the fact that Chittendens deviation from the ideal Senator-topopulation ratio is at 7.51% above, which is second only to Lamoille at 7.64%. What does this mean? Well, it means that mathematically speaking Chittenden County residents are ever-so-slightly less represented than most other districts. Windsor County, at 7.46% population deviation from the ideal voter-to-Senator ratio, is slightly more represented. You say to-MAY-to, I say to-MAH-to. Many Vermonters were treated to an automated robo-call last week promoting School Choice Week across the country. The calls were sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative nonprot advocacy organization funded by the high-prole oil tycoons David and Charles Koch. Coincidentally (or not), school choice was in the Statehouse news as well. Commissioner of Education Armando Vilaseca has offered a liberal reinterpretation of the choice rules that allow for high school students to choose a public school that is out of their district. In addition, the Senate Education Committee has taken up a discussion of whether to expand this choice program geographically, and into the elementary grades. But this is public school choice. The Koch brothers and others are promoting voucher programs that would allow public funds to be used for tuition at private particularly parochial schools. While there is a GOP-sponsored bill pending in the House that would introduce these sorts of vouchers (H.296) as well as authorize charter schools, it wont go anywhere and the topic is unlikely even to come up in any meaningful way in Vermont as it has in other states, precisely because the term continues to mean different things to different people. Rumors Its the legislative session before an election time for politicians to oat trial balloons for higher ofce ambitions. Yet, the rumor mill is shockingly quiet. No word of challengers for US Senator Bernie Sanders, US Representative Peter Welch, or Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott. Governor Shumlin has his likely opponent in Franklin Senator Randy Brock, but besides that there are a couple murmurings. Democrat/Progressive Doug Hoffer is all-but certain to challenge GOP Auditor Tom Salmon Jr. to a rematch, and ofcial word will likely come soon. In addition, unconrmed rumors have former Rutland Senator Wendy Wilton looking to challenge incumbent Democratic Treasurer Beth Pearce.

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets has launched a new online service that allows licensed Vermont businesses to renew, and pay online, for their annual retail products and weighing and measuring device licenses. The new web service is intended to make these processes more convenient for Vermont businesses, saving time and money for both business and state government. This enhancement will allow large Vermont businesses with multiple in-state retail locations to streamline the license renewal process for all of those locations. Additionally, smaller local businesses will benefit from the efficiencies that this new system will offer. Historically, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture has licensed more than 3700 retail locations annually in the retail and weights and measures categories, and this number is expected to increase over time. This new online licensing service is a great first step toward enhancing the Agencys use of technology to support Vermont businesses, many which already subscribe to e-commerce best

practices, said Chuck Ross, Secretary of the Agency of Agriculture, Food, and Markets. The convenience of the web service is straightforward: with a few quick clicks, retail business managers will be able to enter appropriate data about their license need, select appropriate license types online and pay securely by credit card, then get confirmation of renewal which they can print out if they choose. The service is accessible online 24/7/365 at, and was built at no cost to the Agency over a two-year period by the states e-government partner, Vermont Information Consortium (VIC). The online service is the first such service for the Agency the first, they hope, of many to follow. We are pleased to be able to leverage technology in a way that will make things more convenient and save our local business owners valuable time, said Governor Shumlin.

Steve and Jake dreamed of a streetcorner law machine that would make mass-produced legal information and forms available to the public, and when personal computers became widespread, immediately saw their potential for do-it-yourself legal software. Steve was also an early and enthusiastic proponent of giving away plain-English legal information on the Internet, and championed Nolos early (1994) foray online. Steve was an author of many Nolo books, including How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, The Foreclosure Survival Guide, Trademark, Legal Research, Special Needs Trusts, and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He played a crucial role in developing WillMaker, software produced by Nolo in the 1980s that continues to help millions of Americans prepare their own wills and other estate planning documents. The program is famously both complete and easy to usea result that was achieved in large part because of how much thought Steve put into it. Books and software were only part of his efforts. Steve and his wife Catherine helped create the profession of legal document preparer (independent paralegal, in his original term), founding an organization for California document preparers. Steve also personally provided lowcost, high-quality legal help to thousands of clients over the years. His strategy, unsurprisingly, was unique; for $100, Steve provided a phone consultation and written report, designed to prepare clients to represent themselves. Always advocates of free speech, Steve and Catherine were deeply involved in their community radio station, KPFZ, hosting shows every week and serving on the stations board of directors. Steves generosity of spirit was legendary. He had time for everyone, listened to everyone. He could talk books, baseball, politics, music, ideasconversations with Steve were never dull. All of us lucky enough to know him will miss him deeply.

All earned top spots on RealAge's 2012 Youngest Cities in America list. The following top10 metro areas enjoy such healthy lifestyles that on average their residents are physically at least two years younger than their chronological age -- and many are years younger than that. Follow their lead, and you'll live longer without leaving your hometown. Making the RealAge top-10 list is like winning an Academy Award and the Super Bowl -- it's that tough! We analyzed data from the nation's 50 largest metropolitan areas. Our source: results from some of the 28 million people who've taken the RealAge test, which Dr. Mike pioneered. This free health assessment combines the latest scientific research with your lifestyle and health history to calculate your RealAge -- how old your body actually is, as compared to your calendar age. (To find out your RealAge, go to And you'll get a list of things you can do to become younger.) The results for the cities? Drum roll, please: RealAge's Top 10 Youngest Cities for 2012: 1. San Francisco; 2. Salt Lake City; 3. San Diego; 4. Minneapolis-St. Paul; 5. Denver; 6. Raleigh, N.C.; 7. Boston; 8. Austin; 9. Washington D.C./Baltimore; 10. Los Angeles. RealAge's Top 10 Oldest Cities for 2012: 1. Knoxville, Tenn.; 2. Louisville, Ky.; 3. Memphis, Tenn.; 4. Oklahoma City; 5. Indianapolis; 6. Greensboro, N.C.; 7. Nashville, Tenn.; 8. Greenville, S.C.; 9. Cincinnati; 10. Columbus, Ohio. What traits separate the residents of the youngest cities from residents of those that make you older? (Note for you statisticians: We adjusted the data for age, so areas with lots of retirees weren't penalized and college towns didn't get an edge.) We looked closely at 22 factors that slow or speed aging -- from diet and exercise to optimism and smoking -- and discovered some surprises. A zeal for fruit and veggies plus stellar LDL cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar numbers catapulted San Francisco into first place. Happy marriages and low smoking rates contributed to Salt Lake City's No. 2 ranking. The benefits of great health insurance (credit Massachusetts's health-care reform) and healthy sleep habits helped Boston into seventh place. A trifecta of troubles -- extremely high rates of diabetes, high LDL cholesterol and high blood pressure -- pushed Louisville and Memphis to the bottom. Knoxville's last-place finish (yep, again) was due to bottom-10 positions for those health risks plus a last-place finish for exercise. Among your most important stay-young factors: Better blood pressure. Minneapolis (fourth youngest) had the nation's best blood pressure levels; Knoxville (the oldest) came in last. Keeping yours at 110/75 makes your RealAge up to 8.9 years younger. A joyful marriage. Wedded bliss extends your warranty, making men's RealAge 4.2 years younger; women's, 2.5 years. Raleigh (sixth youngest) and Minneapolis (10th youngest) are great places to enjoy marriage. Enough vitamin D-3. This major nutritional anti-ager protects against brittle bones, heart attacks, strokes and some cancers. Some of the youngest cities are far north, including Boston, Minneapolis and Seattle (14th youngest, but No. 1 for D-3) -meaning residents often don't get enough sunshine to activate their skin's D-3 factory. People in those places clearly take their vitamin D-3 supplements! We hope you do, too (1,000 IU a day, 1,200 after age 60). Getting enough D-3 can make your RealAge Weekly 2.5 years younger.

Love Story

Worlds Greatest

The story of Valentines Day begins in the third century. The oppressive Roman emperor, Claudius, ordered all Romans to worship 12 gods, but Valentinus was dedicated to the ideals of Christ. Not even the threat of death could keep him from practicing his beliefs. He was arrested and imprisoned. During the last weeks of Valentinus life, a remarkable thing happened. Seeing that he was a man of learning, the jailer asked whether his daughter Julia might be brought to Valentinus for lessons. She had been blind since birth. Valentinus read stories of Romes history to her. He taught her arithmetic, and he told her about God. She saw the world

through his eyes, trusted in his wisdom and found comfort in his quiet strength. Valentinus, does God really hear our prayers? Julia asked one day. Yes, my child, He hears each one, he replied. Do you know what I pray for every morning and every night? I pray that I might see. I want so much to see everything youve told me about. God does what is best for us if we will only believe in Him, Valentinus said. Oh, Valentinus, I do believe, Julia said fervently. I do! She knelt and grasped his hand. They sat quietly together, each praying. Suddenly there was a brilliant


light in the prison cell. Radiant, Julia cried, Valentinus, I can see! I can see! Praise to God, Valentinus exclaimed. On the eve of his death, Valentinus wrote one last note to Julia, urging her to stay close to God, and he signed it From Your Valentine. He was executed the next day, Feb. 14, 270 A.D., and buried at what is now the Church of Praxedes in Rome. It is said that Julia planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave. Today, the almond tree remains a symbol of abiding love and friendship. On each Feb. 14, St. Valentines Day, messages of affection and love are exchanged around the world.

Valentines Day


Justin Morrill of Strafford was a Representative (1855-1867) and a Senator (1867-1898) from Vermont. He will again make an appearance at the State House in Montpelier on Wednesday, February 8th at 7:30pm. His wife, Ruth, will join him. The Vermont Historical Society will team up with the Justin Morrill Homestead in Strafford to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act and present an evening with the Senator and his wife. Justin Morrill, acted by Kurt Albee, and Ruth Morrill, portrayed by Amy Sholk, will entertain the audience with the storyline from chapters in Morrills life: American architecture; horticulture; education; and the early Republican party. Tess Taylor, Vermont Historical Society Program Director, says, Please join us for a delightful evening with this icon who is remembered for the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act, which established federal funding for many of the public colleges and universities throughout the United States. The event will be highlighted with music from the time performed and arranged by Susan Reid. The Farmers Night series began in 1923, long before the interstate was built, when many legislators lived in Montpelier during the session and organized mid-week entertainment for themselves. This event is free and open to the public thanks to sponsors The University of Vermont and Denis, Ricker & Brown, Inc. Call Tess Taylor at (802) 479-8505 for more information or check online at

The e-Vermont Community Broadband Project is working across Vermont to help communities solve local issues with 21st century tools. On February 16th, e-Vermont will host Vermont Communities in a Digital Age to highlight some of the projects taking place and bring leaders and learners together to share what they have discovered so far. Topics include mobilizing community resources during emergencies, a hands-on lab about digital tools for business, a showcase of how technology is expanding the classroom for 4-6th graders, and a preview of how town meetings can reach a wider audience. The all-day workshop takes place at Vermont Technical College in Randolph Center. High speed Internet is the critical resource of the 21st century for business, education, community building, good governance and communicating with friends and family. It touches on all parts of our lives, says e-Vermont Project Director Helen Labun Jordan. But making the best use of this resource takes the kind of creative thinking well be sharing on February 16.

Anne Galloway is the keynote speaker. Anne is an award-winning journalist and founder/editor of, a statewide news website dedicated to coverage of Vermont politics, consumer affairs, business and public policy. Registration is only $20 and includes course offerings, refreshments and lunch. For a com-

The idea of Go Figure is to arrive at the figure given at the bottom and right-hand columns of the diagram by following the arithmetic signs in the order they are given (that is, from left to right and top to bottom). Use only the numbers below the diagram to complete its blank squares and use each of the nine numbers only once.

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to fill all of the empty square, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of each horizontal lock equals the number to its left, and the sum of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number may be used in the same block more than once.

A: Catalogs are sent early to give you plenty of time to plan this years garden and order your seeds, of course. While we tend to be preoccupied in January and February with shoveling snow and staying warm, February is prime time for ordering seeds. Most companies make their shipments this month. Its also just a nice, quiet time of year for most homeowners, right after the holidays and before spring lawn care and exterior house repairs gear up. So this is a great time to sit down with your catalogs or browse the Web looking for ideas on things to grow and ways to configure your garden. One of my favorite Web sites is A Way to Garden (http://, which features plenty of advice for gardeners of all levels, as well as video and pictorial instructions, podcasts and other fun. Its a good place to start if youre new to researching gardening and seeds on the Web. If you want to do something more than sowing herbs or struggling with tomatoes (not saying other people struggle to get big red tomatoes, but I sure do), look into planting vegetables or flowers native to your area. For example, residents of coastal Virginia or Maryland might want to look at Annapolis Seeds (, which produces seeds native to the Maritimes. A number of online garden planners also are out there. These can help you lay out and plan your outdoor garden, offer hints and ideas, and generally make this stage of gardening more fun, or as fun as it can be when youre anxious to get outside and start turning over dirt. HOME TIP: Have an old, leaky garden hose you dont know what to do with? Use a section of hose as a blade guard for a hand saw.

Save smaller bits of leftover veggies in a large freezer-safe container or bag in the freezer. When its full, make vegetable soup. Be sure you use bathroom fans correctly, turning on to remove steam but turning off to keep from pumping out heat. This is equally important in the summer, when you pump out valuable cooled air. Many people dont think of fans this way, and they end up running for hours. -- R.D. in Mississippi Keep salt or baking soda by the stove for small, quick cleanups. A good dose of salt will stop an egg from running all over the place. Dip a damp cloth in baking soda for a handy scrub. Although a handful of either might work in a pinch on a small flare-up on the stove, you should have a fire extinguisher close by for fires.

Cast-Iron Doorstop
Q: I have a cast-iron doorstop that has been in my family for at least three generations. It is a rabbit dressed in top hat and tails. The item is in fairly good condition. -- Beth, Amarillo, Texas A: Your doorstop was probably manufactured by National Foundry and is valued in the $75 to $150 range, according to Kovels Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide by Ralph and Terry Kovel (Black Dog & Leventhal books). Doorstops were especially popular during the late Victorian-era. *** Q: I have a Victorian-era Bible that was published in Glasgow, perhaps during the 1880s. It has a deluxe binding with metal latches and thick back and front covers. Letters found in the Bible are from the 1890s. It is in excellent condition, and I would like to determine its value. -- Judith, Placitas, N.M. A: I contacted several used and rare book dealers who told me that most highly decorative Victorian-era Bibles sell in the $75 to $150 range, depending on condition and content. By content, I mean personal family information recorded in its pages. A Bible from the Civil War period could be quite valuable if it

Flowers for Your Valentine

Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor, UVM Although traditional, red roses arent the only flowers that say be mine this February 14. Tulips (cut or in pots), carnations, iris, fragrant freesia, Peruvian lily, potted azaleas, and orchids are alternative flowers for giving to a special person on St. Valentines Day. If you want to give roses, but cant afford the high price tag for long-stemmed reds, why not choose sweetheart or miniature roses. Theyre less expensive, just as lovely, and are available in the same range of colors including red, pale pink, white, lavender, yellow, and peach. Or, simply give one stem in a bouquet with the small white flowers of some babys breath, and a green fern leaf. When choosing roses, you may want to pay attention to the color as different colors may have different meanings to the recipient. Red, of course, is the most popular and represents romance and love, while lilac-colored roses are said to represent love at first sight. Yellow, on the other hand, represents friendship and loyalty. Pink roses can be used to express gratitude and to say thanks. Or, select red and white carnations which are less expensive than roses. You may consider a mixed bouquet of red, white, and pink flowers. For example, you could ask your florist to make up a bouquet of white tulips, pink carnations, and a few red roses with sprigs of babys breath for the finishing touch. Or include a few long-lasting and more specialty flowers such as alstroemeria, freesia, or even cut orchid stems. If you want a large and exotic bouquet, look for the large tropical red anthurium or ginger. Some florists have walk-in coolers where you can pick your own flower combinations. If you select your own blooms, choose ones that are just beginning to open. Wrap the flowers well to protect them from the cold on your way home. Once you arrive home, recut the stems and immediately place in warm water with floral preservative. You can find this preservative in small packets at florists, or they may be included in pre-made bouquets. Flowers will last longest if the water in the vase is changed, with new preservative and stems recut, every 3 or 4 days. Make sure to remove any leaves that may be under water. A flowering potted plant will provide enjoyment for many weeks, usually longer than cut flowers. Potted tulips, azaleas, and cyclamen are all easy to care for and are commonly available in shades of pink, white, and red this time of year. When buying a potted plant for indoors, look for one with many buds about to open rather than one already in full bloom. Inspect buds, flowers, and undersides of leaves for signs of disease or insect pests. You may want to enclose a note with your gift to ensure that the plant will be given proper care. Mention that the plant needs to be kept well watered, but not overwatered, and out of drafts. If the

Be a Responsible Pet Owner

February is Responsible Pet Owners Month, and while I sometimes grouse about events that designate a specific period of the year to do something that should obviously be done every single day, I think its a worthy way to enlighten new pet owners or those thinking about getting a pet on how to care for that pet. So, how can you be a

responsible pet owner?

If youre considering getting a pet: --Study and learn all you can about the pet or breed youre interested in. --Consider adopting from a shelter or rescue. --Avoid buying dogs from puppy mills, at flea markets or other sketchy places. --If buying from a breeder, research and consider carefully before making a purchase. If you already have a pet: --Spay or neuter your pet. --Do more than just provide food, water and shelter: Give your pet lots of love and attention. --Teach your children how to properly care for pets and how to play responsibly with them. --Provide regular, daily obedience training to your dog. --Keep your cat indoors. --When taking your dog out for a walk, follow your towns leash laws and pick up after it. --At dog parks, follow the posted rules. Owners who dont follow rules can put the park at risk of being shut down. Dont be that guy. There are, of course, many other ways to be a responsible pet owner. But this is a good time to review the way you care for your pets, the routines youve fallen into, the training youve meant to start -- and to plan new fun and activities for your pets and family.
Send your questions or tips to, or write to Paws Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. For more pet care-related advice and information, visit (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

foil or paper covering the pot is not removed to allow adequate drainage, make a hole in the bottom to allow excess water to drain and of course place in a saucer to keep water off of indoor surfaces. Most cut flowers and potted flowers last longest when given cool nights (55 to 60 degrees F) and warm (65 to 70 degrees F) during the day.

Last Weeks Weather Two warm intrusions in just one week with two shot of snow changing to messy wintry mixed precip., though not as bad as January 26th, 27th, where ice accumulation was up to a quarter inch. We settled into a drier and colder northwesterly flow over the weekend with small disturbances giving us shots of light snows. Though up in far northern areas Averill did receive a bit over 4 which for this winter anyway, would be a moderate to heavy snowfall. Mount Mansfield total at the stake just 46 inches but has caught up to within about 10 inches of average. With good snowmaking, this has allowed for our local ski resorts to actually do pretty good and much closer to average than down below onto valley floors. A climb and snow sample on Mount Hunger last weekend revealed spots just off the top over 2 and 1/2 feet. Vermont Weather Stats last week ending Monday morning Feb 6th Highest temperature: 55 degrees at Brattleboro Wednesday afternoon the 1st Lowest temperature: minus 15 Island Pond Airport Sunday morning the 5th Heaviest 24 hour precip: 0.42 ending last Thursday morning the 2nd Heaviest Snowfall: 4.1 Averill ending last Saturday morning the 4th Most Snow Depth: 46 Mount Mansfield at the stake last Saturday afternoon the 4th Global Weather Facts For Last Week Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 109, Carnavon,

Western Australia. Last weeks coldest temperature: minus 54 at Fort Yukon, Alaska. Antarctic research station. CO2 Readings and RDS (Reality Detachment Syndrome) The global concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide continued to steadily climb during 2011, despite pledges by some countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Basically, it is still business as usual and accelerating. December 2011 Carbon Dioxide level (CO2) at 391.80 Compared to previous December 2010, it is up from 389.68 That was a 2.12 increase in parts per million from December 2010. Reality Detachment Syndrome continues at an all time high, roughly 9 out of 10 across the U.S. and about 7 out of 10 for the rest of the world at large. RDS is a measurement of inaction of political leadership and cowardice. Well keep you posted right here on any changing trends. Big Ice Core Drilling at Vostok Antarctica After two decades of drilling through miles of Antarctic ice, Russian scientists are about to breach an underground lake that has not been exposed to the surface in more than 20 million years. Lake Vostok, as the body of water is called, is part of a chain of more than 200 lakes hidden beneath the ice, some of which were formed when Australia and Antarctica were still connected. Vostok will be the first one of all to be opened when the drill hits water sometime this week. The Vostok Ice core is one of many climatologists

use to look back in time at the atmosphere as it it preserved within the bubbles within the ice. The bubbles reveal tremendous chemistry data of the atmosphere and are used to help understand how climate changes. Weather Trends Ahead Less Inclement! No Big storms were indicated at least through next weekend. The next weather

maker will be an arctic front that will drop down running nearly west to east paralleling the Canadian border on its way south. This should likely trigger a round of snow showers and flurries and maybe a few snow squalls, but not much over an 2 inches accumulation and closer to a dusting on most valley floors. Timing would bring it though Vermont along about Thursday night or Friday. A cold shot of modified arctic air will reach the region on Saturday possibly bringing in night time temperatures dipping below zero once again. We promise to see more sunshine than clouds overall. Further down the Weather Highway According to the large scale weather features of the arctic Oscillation, no

huge changes were indicated over the general weather pattern we are seeing this week as compared to next week. However there could be some evolution in a storm track that might be more active next week with a couple light to moderate snowfalls next week.

This shows the Northern Hemisphere Height anomalies back last Friday, which can also be used for temperatures aloft and at the surface. In general, where the orange/red indicates where temperatures were above normal underneath areas of higher pressure. The cold shown in blue generally west of Alaska, extending into the central Pacific.
