Jason Corliss Takes Second Thunder Road Late Model Win

vt-world
  Barre’s Jason Corliss claimed his second career Thunder Road Late Model win and became the first repeat winner in the division for 2014 during Safelite Auto Glass night on Thursday, July 24. Corliss came from the ninth starting spot and got under Lt. Governor Phil Scott late in the 50-lap event to gain the lead and eventually the win. Young Kyle Pembroke led early in the race until relinquishing the lead to Brett Gervais on a restart just past halfway. Gervais then held the lead until losing control on a lap 32 restart, handing the lead to Scott. Corliss ran down Scott and took over the lead with under 15 to go. He cruised to the win over the final laps. Derrick O’Donnell also g…

Governor and Advocates Highlight Summer Meals Programs for Kids

Governor and Advocates Highlight Summer Meals Programs for Kids

vt-world
  As more than 50 local children enjoyed a free lunch at the Waterbury Recreation Department last week, Governor Shumlin and anti-hunger advocates applauded summer food programs, urged families whose children need nutritious meals in the summertime to participate, and reminded business and Vermonters of the opportunity to volunteer at meal sites. “Summer should be a fun time for many kids and teens. But for those who count on subsidized school meals, it can be a stressful time because they don’t have access to regular meals,” Gov. Shumlin said. He said about 37,000 Vermont children rely on a free or reduced-price school lunch during the school year. While Vermont ranks 5th in the…

Be Tick Smart: Repel, Inspect, Remove to Prevent Lyme Disease

Be Tick Smart: Repel, Inspect, Remove to Prevent Lyme Disease

vt-world
  How easy would it be to find a poppy seed hidden somewhere on your skin? Lyme disease is transmitted from the bite of infected deer ticks. This time of year the nymphs (immature ticks), which are about the size of a poppy seed, are biting and may spread the bacteria that cause Lyme disease. Transmission can be prevented if the tick is removed within about 36 hours, but the nymphs are so small that they can go unnoticed if you aren’t looking for them carefully. Most infections occur in the summer months. A few simple steps can help prevent tick bites and the risk of getting Lyme disease. Start by avoiding areas that are good tick habitat as much as is practical. Ticks tend…

The Wonderful Land of August

  Dear readers: This column will make more sense if you read it after August 1st. Feel free to read it now, but read it again then. (That way I get to visit with you twice.)   Well, fellow travelers, here we are again. For any who are unaware, we have all just arrived in the wonderful land of August. If you’re reading this, which you must be, you have been to this beautiful place of sun and fun many times before. (That is, unless you are a child prodigy, the likes of which the world has never seen, and you are reading this on your first birthday or something.) Discounting that improbability, it is a good bet that you have been to this place in the year at least several doz…

Watching T.V. these days is bad enough, but if you watch the news, it is like watching and listening to a scary fiction novel! It’s bad enough that the world seems to be deteriorating and fighting amongst themselves, but how about what seems to be happening here in our country? I am not sure that good news or uplifting news was ever the main topic of the evening news, but today in 2014, hardly an evening goes by when we aren’t told about yet again another school shooting. I don’t know about you, but I can’t even remember such awfulness before the last few years. And instead of getting better, it appears that children shooting and killing other children, their parents and teachers, seems t…

Video Pick   I don’t like children’s movies. But I have to tip my cap to the people who make them. Not only do they have to make entertaining movies, they have to make sure that their movies help their bosses sell merchandise, toys, and video games. I have watched my best friend’s son grow up. I have witnessed him evolve from a toddler who was content to play with anything to a brand-conscious five-year-old who demands “Iron Man” toys, “Transformers” robots, and strange Japanese fighting cars from something called “Beyblade.” I honestly don’t know whether I should be praising these corporations for their mastery of child psychology and forward-thinking marketing savvy. Or…
