By Judy Reiss I had planned to share with you my transition from walker to canes, but after having lunch at Maynard’s Snack Bar in Moretown, I have changed my mind! However, I do want to encourage you folks who have been able to really get along well with your walker, let me tell you what I did...in the very short version! First, let me assure you that I love my walker. I could go anywhere and had no problem with it. And dragging in and out of the car was really no problem. I decided to try a cane, but was convinced by my PT and also my daughter, who is a PT, that regardless of how hard I tried, I was “listing” to my right. So I decided to try two canes and let me tell you they work gre…

Town of Marshfield

Town of Marshfield

vt-world
By Senator Bill Doyle According to Esther Swift, author of “Vermont Place Names,” the charter of Marshfield in 1782 by the State of Vermont was related to the grand design of the Allen Brothers to have the Republic of Vermont accepted as a state. Vermont in various ways had attempted to gain the attention of the new nation in order to obtain statehood. The Republic of Vermont had annexed 14 New York towns and in the early 1780s annexed half of New Hampshire. The young republic had declared its independence against New York and Great Britain in 1777, had written a state constitution in the same year and in 1778 elected its first governor and legislature. In 1775, under Ethan Allen,…

China vs. USA: Empires at War **1/2 They have 1.4 billion people. Two hundred nuclear warheads. The largest industrial economy. And an unquenchable desire to be the world’s #1 superpower. A showdown is inevitable. World War III. The United States vs. China. I absolutely do not believe that. China is our economic rival, not our enemy. I am certain that the United States would be a better, happier, more egalitarian country today if we had never granted China Most Favored Nation status and become its largest trading partner. However, there is one positive thing about doing so much business with China. We aren’t going to go to war. The militaristic kooks who made the documenta…

As a follow up to the last column on the benefits of Adult Day to the participant, this week we’ll share information on the benefits to the caregiver, which are equally important to consider.

The Apple

The Apple

vt-world
By G. E. Shuman This is probably a strange way to begin this particular column, and a stranger title to give it, but, hopefully, it will all make sense by the end. Recently our daughter, Cathy, and her youngest child, Ayvah, were out for a walk. Their walk happened to take them under and past an old crab apple tree along the roadside. Ayvah, an 8-year-old who is very famous in our family for her insightful thoughts, saturated, as always, in the natural profundity found only in childhood, asked her mom a question, which was this: “If the tree is the mother of the apple, why doesn’t the apple look like the tree?” (I just love it when one of my grandkids comes up with a brilliant, thoughtf…

Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party ** The most confusing letters in our language are (D) and (R). When there is a (D) or an (R) next to a person’s name, it makes it impossible for otherwise smart people to make an accurate judgement of them. Or to even be able to hear what they are saying. I mean, Red Sox fans hate the Yankees but they able to recognize that New York SS Didi Gregorius is just a regular guy with a strange name. And Yankee fans don’t hate Boston SS Xander Bogaerts personally. They understand that he’s just a regular guy with an even stranger name. And yet, Democrat voters really think every Republican is evil and vice versa. It’s confo…

By Judy Reiss There can’t be a child anywhere who can’t wait for school to get out at the end of the year. I think that feeling of euphoria still exists, although the school year has been made longer. Of course, I am one of those who thinks that a longer year is a good thing. In fact, what I’ve always thought was a little strange is that students who go to college get out months before the very young kindergartners! Not only do I think that is very strange, think about how much parents pay for their loved one to go to college! And almost before either student or parent can turn around they have either a fall break, a winter break or a spring break and then before either one can catch th…

Central Vermont Road Pitch Impresses in First Year

Editor, After 6 months of dedicated work, we pulled it off! Central Vermont Road Pitch was a smashing success, especially for it being our first year. And we could not have done it without YOU! The Central Vermont Road Pitch Steering Committee is sincerely grateful to everyone who contributed to this amazing event. First, congratulations to our five “pitchers” (Susan Snider, Liz Holtz, Lori Barg, Andrew Glover, and Sonya Spaulding) for delivering top notch presentations.

Two Flawed Candidates

Two Flawed Candidates

vt-world
Editor, Clinton and Trump are flawed candidates running for President. Clinton has questionable scruples, and she has made significant mistakes. As Secretary of State, she set up an unsecured private server in her home for government email communications and sent and received secret and top secret information. She had ultimate responsibility for the Benghazi debacle where our ambassador and other Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists. Her foundation accepted contributions from foreign entities. Trump is the most unqualified person to ever run for President. He is a vile loudmouth with possible bigoted views who only cares about himself, and he does not respect our constitut…
