Library Story Times Provide Children With Necessary Skills

Library Story Times Provide Children With Necessary Skills

vt-world
By Aaron Retherford Kids don’t need to go to a prestigious preschool to be well prepared for kindergarten. They just have to head to their local libraries. Most libraries in central Vermont provide programs that nourish young, developing minds and bodies. Jaquith Public Library in Marshfield isn’t the only library in central Vermont with a weekly story time for young kids. But it provides the complete package. Children’s librarian Sylvia Smith leads a weekly story time that is followed by a play group. Jaquith Public Library Director Susan Green said around 25-30 parents and children (birth to 4 years old) attend the program. For the first 30 minutes, children listen to stories…

A Most Violent Year ***1/2 Not too long ago, New York City was a rough place to live. In the 1970s and 80s, New York was called the City That Never Sleeps. But those who ventured out at night were taking a serious risk because the streets were teeming with rogues, ruffians, and rapists. Twenty-first century New York is a different world. It is one of the cleanest, safest cities in the country. Rudolph Giuliani – who was mayor from 1994 to 2001 – deserves much of the credit. Cleaning up a city as big and brutal as New York was a herculean task. But Giuliani had the will and the plan. He appointed a tough new Police Commissioner, hired hundreds more officers, and granted t…

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I have always considered myself almost a savant about trivia! Just ask my children, I don’t think I have missed an episode of Jeopardy since it began about 30 years ago. Every night that we watch the program I am as quick as a bunny to shout out the answers. And a lot of the time, I am right. And when I answer a particularly hard question Malcolm will applaud! For years, several of my children have suggested that I go on the program because I am so good at it. Of course, I have always lowered my eyes and pretended that I was embarrassed at the suggestion but that I really am not that smart. Well, let me tell you what happened. In Waitsfield, we have a restaurant call…

By G. E. Shuman Dear Readers, I cannot tell a lie. I stole this column, from myself. I simply ran out of time to write this week, so am reprinting something that people seemed to like the first time. I hope you do, too. A few weeks ago I was standing in our kitchen, and happened to notice something about my daughter, when I saw her sitting on the couch in the next room. “You don’t wear a wrist-watch, huh Em?” I remarked. “I don’t wear a what?” Emily asked back. “A wrist-watch,” I repeated. “Dad, they don’t call them wrist-watches anymore. It’s just a watch, and, no, I don’t wear one.” “Why not? Don’t you have one?” I asked, in honest ignorance of her point. “I do…

It’s Tick Time!

Editor, We are welcoming this warm weather and so are the ticks! Time to tuck your pants in your socks or wear rubber boots when you are raking, gardening, and walking out in fields and woods. Wear long sleeves with tight cuffs, too, if you are working with your hands. Tie up long hair and bathe after your exposure to wash off loose ticks and find any that may be embedded. Keep your tick repellent by the door and use it, or treat your clothing with permethrin (NOT your body). Learn how to remove a tick, and the symptoms of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Check yourself, your kids, and your pets, too! Every crack and cranny. For more details, check out www.lymediseaseassociation.org a…
