A native of Barre recently deployed to Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. David Gritsavage, an F-16C Fighting Falcon pilot with the 451st Expeditionary Fighter Squadron deployed from the Vermont Air National Guard, is impacting the enemy throughout Afghanistan by flying armed over-watch in support of American and coalition forces in Afghanistan. "Getting to protect the guys on the ground is by far the best, rewarding part of this deployment," said Gritsavage, a graduate of Thetford Academy, class of 87 and Norwich University class of 91. "Being able to help bring home people safe to their family ... it's pretty awesome." In the States, Airmen train the way they fight. But for Gritsavage, getting to perform his job in

combat has been a broadening experience. "I volunteered for this deployment for a reason -- I wanted to do real world missions," said Gritsavage, who joined the Air Force about 21 years ago. "We train so much back in the U.S. Getting to come out here to do our job was something I couldn't pass up."

Green Up Vermont recently honored F. Sheldon Prentice as the 2012 Governor Deane C. Davis Green Up Citizen of the year. Whereas Governor Davis launched Green Up Day in 1970, Sheldon played a key role in saving Green Up Day in the early 1990s. In 1979 Governor Snelling declared Green Up Day so successful it should go out on its own. Numerous interested citizens formed a 501(c)3 non-profit status organization, Vermont Green Up Inc. Though the special effort continued, with staffing mostly volunteer it Pictured (l to r) are Melinda Vieux, went on to experience a very President of Green Up Vermont, and F. Sheldon Prentice, Governor Deane quiet period and tight C. Davis Green Up Citizen of the Year. operations. In 1986 Hilton Wick recruited Sheldon to join the Green Up board, saying it was just the right thing to do, for someone with his background. Sheldon became Chairman of the Board in 1995 and arranged for special financial support to carry the organization forward and establish a meager yet firm cash reserve. Sheldon said he would serve as Chair only if he had a good Executive Director. Melinda Vieux was hired in 1996 and she and Sheldon have continued perking up Green Up, with Sheldon now titled Chair Emeritus and Melinda, President. Governor Davis clearly cared deeply for Vermont. Likewise, Sheldon - known for his passion for, strong belief in and loyalty to Vermont - is said to carry the Vermont torch wherever he goes. Sheldon puts Vermont first, beyond politics. Sheldon graduated from Montpelier High School in 1968, and later from Dartmouth College, and has been very active in supporting both schools over the years. During the summer of 1970, he worked as an intern for the Vermont Natural Resources Council, promoting the benefits of zoning, including Act 250. After graduating from Dartmouth, Sheldon taught U.S. history for two years to G.I.s stationed in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. Then in 1974 he returned to attend Fordham Law School in New York City. During that time, he met Barbara Mayzik, a student in the evening division, whom he married in August of 1977. After Fordham, he began work in New York City as an Associate for a large law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell. He moved back to Montpelier in 1980 to work in the law department at National Life Insurance Company. He taught as an Adjunct at Vermont Law School from 82 to 89 and in Montpelier served on the Planning Commission and in Rotary. Sheldon became General Counsel of Chittenden Bank in December 1986 and then became active in the Burlington Rotary. He has also served as president of Vermont Bankers Association, on the Board of Bar Managers of the Vermont Bar Association, and on the Board of Arbitrators for the National Association of Securities Dealers. In 2008, Merchants Bank appointed Sheldon as General Counsel, and in 2010, NBT Bank successfully recruited him to serve as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at its headquarters in Norwich, New York. In this location Sheldon now serves on the Norwich Planning Commission; as a Board member of the Chenango County Arts Council and a member of the Chenango County Chamber of Commerce. In addition to professional and civic involvement, Sheldon also dabbled in Vermont politics over the years. He served as Treasurer of the State Republican Party; Finance Chair of Barbara Snellings campaign for Lt. Governor; and at urging by the Chair of the State Republican Party he seriously considered running for Governor in 1994. Sheldons family includes wife Barbara and daughters Hilary, Amanda and Julie, all graduates from Dartmouth College. Green Up Vermont honors F. Sheldon Prentice for his many positive contributions to the community, especially his long and dedicated involvement with Vermonts now iconic tradition Green Up Day.

April 25, 2012

April 23 - 27 is National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week. Vermont will join states across the country to promote safe driving in work zones. This year the national theme is Dont Barrel through Work Zones. Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) crews, town and private contractors will be working throughout the state on critical road and bridge projects. Exposure to heavy traffic, distracted drivers and speeding vehicles are constant threats to these work crews. The relatively mild winter combined with additional Irene-related work means an earlier start to what promises to be a very busy construction season, said VTrans Highway Safety and Design Program Manager, Kevin Marshia. We want to be sure the public is alerted to the extra care required when driving in work zones. Our awareness campaign is meant to work handin-hand with training and enforcement activities

Vermont Kicks Off Safety Campaign During National Work Zone Safety Week

to help ensure the safety of workers and the traveling public. This year VTrans will address work zone safety through a series of public service announcements (PSAs), social media campaigns and live radio and TV segments. The PSAs feature actual VTrans employees who are mothers, grandfathers and neighbors asking drivers to slow down, put down the cell phone and pay attention when going through work zones. The thirty second spots will be seen on television and heard on the radio and shared via social media. On the Road, a weekly road condition report, heard Monday mornings on radio stations across the state, will stress work zone safety as well as providing the regional road reports and updates on construction activity. Updates will also be available via Facebook, Twitter and the VTrans website: www.aot.state.vt.us/

It was interesting to deliver at the hospital where we work with friends and colleagues. We knew everyone. It was great. Carolyn Lorenz-Greenberg, a CVMC Pediatrician, and Matthew Greenberg, a CVMC Emergency Department doctor, celebrated the birth of their third child their rst daughter - on April 16. Rebecca Lily weighed 8lb/1oz and was 20.5 inches long. Her brothers Jacob (2) and Adam (4) were there to celebrate as well. Adam was holding his tiny sister when we arrived and declared her very cute. Indeed all present were in agreement. And all agree that sweet Rebecca will have wonderful, attentive playmates at her beck and call. We wish this lovely, happy family a great part of the CVMC ever-growing family all the best. The Lorenz-Greenbergs live in East Montpelier.

Ethan Allen Returns to Philadelphia


Ethan Allen will hold forth in Philadelphia on April 26th and 27th to inspire delegates of the Public Banking Institute to continue their efforts to establish state banks, such as the Bank of North Dakota. Ethans first journey to the City of Brotherly Love was in June of 1775 with Seth Warner to advocate for the defense of the northern frontier. He made several trips there beginning in September of 1778 to negotiate for Vermonts statehood. Ethan, also known as Jim Hogue, is Vermonts representative to the Public Banking Conference where he will address the delegates and report on Vermonts progress toward a state bank. Upon his return to Vermont, he will give a workshop with Gwen Hallsmith of Montpelier and John Ford of Stowe at the Applecheek Farm on Saturday, May 12th on the history of money, the theft of our wealth by the central banks, and the values of complementary currencies and a state bank. Information regarding the workshop may be found at www.currencycommonsvt.org

In response to a Petition received at the April 9, 2012 Board of Selectmens meeting, a Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Municipal Building at the start of their regular monthly meeting. The petition called for the immediate stop of the demolition of the old Town Clerks building until a hearing can be held on what to do with the building. Also for consideration at the hearing is the request to discontinue TH #42, an unnamed mile of impassable or untraveled road off of Sky Acres Road that dead ends. The current owners, Asgaard, LLC, would like to use the road as a property access for agricultural, timber, and potential residential use.

95th Birthday

On May 4, 1965, San Francisco Giants outfielder Willie Mays hits his 512th career home run to break Mel Otts National League record. Mays would finish his career with 660 home runs, good for third on the all-time list at the time of his retirement. On May 2, 1972, Steven Spielberg begins filming Jaws. The production, which used three mechanical sharks to great effect, enthralled audiences and grossed $458 million in its theatrical release.

Two families in Northfield and two in Barre have received the 2012 Presidents Volunteer Service Award. This award is issued by the Points of Light Institute and Corporation for National and Community Service on behalf of the President of the United States. It is intended to recognize the best in American spirit, and thank and honor Americans who, by their commitment and example, improve their communities and our country through volunteer service. The Hoffman and the Striebe families in Northfield and the White and Smith families of Barre have each received a packet which includes a personalized award certificate and an inspiring letter from President Obama on White House stationery. These wonderful families have opened their homes to exchange students from Switzerland, Italy and Finland through the EF foundation. They have all decided to Share their America with these teens which not only has enriched their lives, but also has helped form friendships for life. If you would like to Share your America with a teen from another country, or have any questions about this experience, you can contact effoundation.org or call 1-800-447-4273, or locally you can call 802-485-7310 and speak with Ed or Leslie Striebe, the Central Vermont International Exchange Coordinators for EF.

Most of the worlds best shoes and purses are made out of leather, so it really makes no sense that we wouldnt be able to wear them year round. Also, leather jackets are such a hot trend. It would be a shame to have to put them in the closet for 3 months! If you agree with this one but still love wearing suede and leather; just pick lighter colors of suede & leather for the summer months. Then switch back to your regular stuff for winter.

Gifford Medical Centers volunteers were honored last Wednesday with a luncheon served by hospital managers, as well prize awards, musical performances, flowers and bags of toffee made by the Randolph hospitals professional chefs. More than 200 community members support the medical center with gifts of time to the hospital, Auxiliary and Thrift Shop, working as clerks, sorting clothes, working in offices, welcoming and visiting with patients, and much more. The quality of care and the experience that our patients enjoy at Gifford is because of you. It starts with you, Ashley Lincoln, director of development, marketing and public relations, told the crowd of about 70. Were very fortunate to have a lovely campus, but the personal touch that you bring to it is what makes it special. Gail Bourassa, director of patient access and financial services, oversees the hospitals patient registration department. Seeing a smiling volunteer at the front information desk helps make a patients day, and makes her day, Bourassa said. Thank you so very much, added Brooks Chapin on behalf of the Menig Extended Care Facility, Giffords nursing home. The residents just adore you. The staff just adores you. It means so much. Volunteers gave a record of nearly 18,000 hours during the hospitals last fiscal year, helping improve the medical centers bottom line and bringing added compassion to the patient care experience. We celebrate all of you who offer your time each day. And there are a vast majority of you who are here willingly evenings as well as weekends. We would not be the community we are without you. Thank you for allowing us to celebrate you during this event, said Volunteer Coordinator Julie Fischer. Islene Runningdeer of Brookfield sang her thanks. Thank you

Gifford Hosts Luncheon to Honor Volunteers


The Rotary Club of Central Vermont is looking for up to three families interested in hosting an exchange student (male or female) for approximately three months each during the next U32 school year 20122013. The incoming student will be qualied by Rotary International for European, Scandinavian or Central South America. Please contact Gary Hass (479-2582 ext. 16) from the Central Vermont Rotary Club.

Ruth and John Lutz both volunteer their time at Gifford Medical Center. The hospital honored them and other volunteers on April 18.

for our volunteers. Thank you for our caring friends, the music therapist sang while her 4-year-old granddaughter, Livee True of Barre Town, accompanied her on the drum. Runningdeer sings and plays music for patients, often end-of-life patients, at Gifford and shared her gift with the volunteers at the luncheon. Hospice singing group Riverbend also entertained. They joked that singing following a turkey dinner with all of the fixings was not their norm. They sing at the bedside of patients in distress or approaching the end-of-life at Gifford and at area homes, coming when called and offering their special brand of peace and comfort for free.

In whats fast becoming a spring tradition in Vermont, more than 30,000 residents across the state will take to the pavement on April 25 for National Walk @ Lunch Day. Currently in its sixth year, National Walk @ Lunch Day is an annual health promotion celebrated by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT) and other associated Blue Cross Blue Shield organizations across the United States. Last year about 25,000 residents laced up their walking shoes to take part in the walk. National Walk @ Lunch Day encourages people to improve their health by taking time during lunch breaks to walk. The Vermont Legislature even recognized the days importance and mission with a formal resolution on April 5. Most Americans schedules are built around their workdays, so National Walk @ Lunch Day is designed to fit into not compete with the average daily routine. Vermont employers and school

Wednesday is National Walk @ Lunch Day

leaders will host walks and BCBSVT will sponsor four community walks throughout the state at the following locations: Berlin Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont offices Burlington City Hall on Church Street Rutland Rutland Regional Medical Center walking loop Brattleboro - River Garden Thanks in part to support from the Vermont Education Health Initiative - the health plan covering educators and school staff across the state - more than 80 schools around Vermont plan to host walks, as well. Employees at worksites across the state will also hold National Walk @ Lunch Day events at their locations. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates the cost to treat illness and chronic disease caused by inactive lifestyles is nearly $1,000 each year for every family in America. Simply getting 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as a

brisk walk, at least five times a week, results in significant health benefits. These include lowering the risk of developing or dying from cardiovascular disease, hypertension or type 2 diabetes and improving the health of muscles, bones and joints. National Walk @ Lunch Day is an opportunity for employers and employees to engage in physical activity while onsite at their workplace and is designed to educate millions of consumers about how their daily decisions can have an impact on their everyday health. It also creates an opportunity for employers to engage their employees in physical activity that promotes a healthier workplace environment, said Don C. George, President and CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont. Better informed and more physically active consumers also can mean fewer serious health problems down the road, which helps better control the rising cost of health care in our nation.

Health Tip


by Edward Ferrari Jr., R.Ph.

Along with lowering blood pressure, cutting back on salt may also reduce your risk of heart attack, angioplasty, coronary bypass and stroke. Researchers assigned 3000 overweight people with pre-hypertension to eat their usual diet or to cut back on sodium for 1 to 3 years. Participants averaged 3600 mg per day before the study, and cut back to 2600 or 2800 mg per day. Over 10 years after the study ended, those who cut their sodium intake had a 25-30% lower risk of a cardiovascular event. Age, race, weight and gender made no difference in the results.

The Barre Opera House welcomes Judy Collins on Wednesday, May 2 at 7:30pm. The show is sponsored by Peoples United Bank with media support from The Point. Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folk songs and contemporary themes. Her impressive career has spanned more than 50 years. At 13, she made her public debut performing Mozart's Concerto for Two Pianos, but it was the music of such artists as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, as well as the traditional songs of the folk revival, that sparked Judys love of lyrics. She soon moved away from the classical piano and began her lifelong love with the guitar. In 1961, Collins released her first album, "A Maid of Constant Sorrow," at the age of 22 and began a 35-year association with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. She interpreted the songs of fellow artists - particularly the social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. Judy was instrumental in bringing other singer-songwriters to a wider audience including poet/musician Leonard Cohen and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman. Collins is also noted for her rendition of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now on her 1967 album, Wildflowers which has since been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Winning "Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards was Judy's version of Send in the Clowns, a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music. Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present. She is still writing, performing, and nurturing fresh talent. She plays 80 to100 dates a year around the country. She is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart. Tickets for Judy Collins are $33-37 order online at www.barreoperahouse.org or call the Barre Opera House at 802-476-8188. The Opera House is handicapped accessible and equipped for the hearing impaired.

Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor, UVM Across the country, weather events in recent years have resulted in many flooded areas. Hurricane Irene in August, 2011 caused epic flooding in Vermont and other northeastern states. If you were affected, and are lucky enough to still have a home and yard, your lawn and garden may be buried under silt. How you deal with a landscape buried under silt depends on its depth. As with any soil, make sure it is dry before working with it. Soil should form a ball in the hand, then crumble when pressed. If the squeezed ball of soil drips water, its still too wet. If a lawn is covered with under an inch of silt from flooding, it may recover. Scratch the surface with a steel hand rake or similar tool. I have a mini-tiller with vertical blades just for penetrating compacted soil (similar to a vertical mower). This will allow water and air to penetrate below a crusted surface to the roots. Once the silt is broken up on lawns, for smaller areas you can try washing silt from the lawn, or at least thinning the depth, with a forceful garden hose. If the silt dries and crusts, keep it broken up during the season until the grass gets reestablished. As soon as possible in the season, do a soil test to see what nutrients may have washed away or need replacing. Kits are available from your local Extension service office, complete with sampling instructions. Results will tell major nutrients needed, amounts, and if soil acidity (pH) needs correcting. If your lawn is covered with more than an inch of silt, it may not recover and need to be reestablished from scratch. Fine leaf fescue and perennial ryegrass have poor tolerance to submergence from flooding, especially if they were under water for 4 days or more. If under three inches of silt, you can try renting an aerator to use up to 6 times through the season. This removes small cores of soil and silt, allowing air and water to get to the roots. If you do this on a smaller area, you can topdress sand or compost on

top, which will work into these holes. If the silt is over 3 inches deep, consider having it professionally removed unless you have a tractor and attachment to scrape it off. If the silt is just too deep or your efforts are in vain, and the lawn isnt showing signs of growth by late spring, you should probably just go over it with a rototiller incorporating the silt as if adding a layer of topsoil. Make sure and soil test to see what needs adding before reseeding. If a small area or you want instant results, and have the budget, consider adding strips of sod. If this is not possible, keep in mind that the best times for seeding cool season grasses are early spring and late summer when conditions favor them and not the weeds. If this is the case, you can stabilize the soil by seeding annual ryegrass at 4 to 6 pounds per 1000 square feet. Then till this in late summer before seeding the permanent grasses. Another option would be to spend this first year rebuilding the soil, removing as much silt as possible first. Since the silt likely brought in a load of weed seeds, youll likely need to deal with them. After appropriate steps as above, rather than replant, add clear plastic to solarize the soil. This is basically covering the soil with a mini-greenhouse which heats up, killing some diseases and many weed seeds. The soil could then be tilled again, bringing more seeds to the surface, and covered again. Or, after the first covering, when uncovered seed in a cover crop. Solarization is simple. Best done in May or June as the soil is heating, rake the soil, moisten it with the hose if dry (moist soil holds more heat), then cover with a thick sheet of clear plastic. Hold the edges down with boards, stones, or just bury in a shallow trench. Leave on for 6 to 8 weeks. If you have eroded areas to deal with, refilling and replacing the topsoil is ideal. If this is too expensive, amend any added backfill with organic matter such as peat moss, compost, rotted wood chips or old mulch, or similar. If the area isnt destined to be a lawn, you can either add plantings (perennials or shrubs) and mulch, seed with annual rye, or add a cover crop such as clover. As much silt as possible should be removed from vegetable gardens, and used to backfill eroded areas or perhaps make a berm garden for flowers. Make sure to use a forceful hose to wash all such silt away from the root areas under bush fruits such as blueberries and brambles. A general rule is that you should not harvest produce within 120 days (4 months) of flooding, as it may be adulterated from contaminants. This does not apply to crops submerged from ponding or standing water such as from rain, that did not wash in from elsewhere. For annual flower beds, remove as much silt as possible, or till in as described for lawns. For perennial flowers, many are tough and can emerge through a few inches of soil. Shallow-rooted ones such as yarrow and tickseed, or groundcovers such as dead-nettle and sedum, likely wont survive being buried. If you know generally where these are, dig them in spring and replant higher or in refurbished soil. Even though many perennials will emerge through a few inches of silt, it helps to rake over them in early spring, or around them later, to remove some silt and to keep it from crusting. As with lawns and other beds, make sure to test the soil fertility. If more than a few inches of silt, try to remove as much as possible in early spring before plants start growing. Otherwise they either wont emerge, or youll destroy them later in the process of silt removal. For deeply covered perennial beds, if you can find choice plants, it may be easiest to dig them up, then till the whole bed and start over as with lawns (a chance for a new design and new plants).

April 25, 2012

was watching the trailer for Bully with my wife. I turned to her and asked: who cares about bullying? She replied: parents. Ohhhhhhhh, yeah. Shes right. To a cold-hearted, childless guy like me, bullying is a normal part of growing up. Adolescents often feel angry and powerless. And they often express their anger by belittling and hurting classmates who are even more powerless than them. Every school kid gets picked on at some point; its an inevitable part of growing up. It even serves a purpose. The experience of being bullied forces a young person to become more observant, more careful about what he says, and better at conforming to social norms. It forces weak kids to get tougher. And it forces loners to learn to get along with the people around them. But this is all cold comfort to a parent whose child is miserable as a result of bullying. Its easy for me to tell a kid to suck it up and tough it out. A mother who learns that her precious baby is being abused and belittled at school is going to demand that somebody put a stop to it. Bully is a sensationalistic documentary that appeals to the most paranoid fears of American parents. Even worse, director Lee Hirsch argues that there is a permanent solution to the bullying epidemic. But his cure seems to consist mostly of pointing an accusatory finger at principals, school boards, and bus drivers for failing to keep naughty students in line. Hey, Ms. Bus Driver: We cant

pay you more than $19,000 a year. But in addition to your driving duties, we are now going to have to ask you to cure misbehavior and ensure that all of the children on your bus treat each other with politeness and respect. Hey, Im not completely insensitive. I feel for the unfortunate adolescents who live in daily fear of being harassed and humiliated. Let me give you an analogy: I am a pacifist. I do not support any war under any circumstances. I am not a protestor, though. I do not think it will do any good for me to take to the streets and call for the armies of the world to lay down their weapons. Pacifists who seriously demand world peace havent accepted the hard fact that war is an inevitable side-effect of human civilization. They get an A for optimism but an F in history. Likewise, people who think that they can completely stop kids from being mean to other kids get an A for optimism and an F in acceptance of reality.

LOOKING FOR A MIRACLE/ Lose 20 pounds in one week? This is almost impossible! Weight loss ads must reflect the typical experiences of the diet users. Beware of programs that claim you can lose weight effortlessly. TIP: Clues to fraudulent ads include words like: breakthrough, effortless, and new discovery. When you see words like these be skeptical. Before you invest your time and money call the ATTORNEY GENERALS CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, at 1-800-649-2424. WANT A CURE-ALL? Health fraud is a business that sells false hope. Beware of unsubstantiated claims for health products and services. There are no Quick Cures - no matter what the ad is claiming. TIP: DO NOT rely on promises of a money back guarantee! Watch out for key words such as exclusive secret, amazing results, or scientific breakthrough. For more information on health related products or services, call the ATTORNEY GENERALS CONSUMER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM at 1-800-649-2424, or consult a health care provider.

Is Human Remedy Safe for Dogs?

DEAR PAWS CORNER: Our dog, Kerry, has pigmentary keratitis, and our vet prescribed tacrolimus and gentamycin solutions, which are very expensive. Instead, we are trying Similasan dry eye relief in Kerrys eyes. Is this safe to use? It seems to be working. -- C. Tobias DEAR C.: Pigmentary keratitis can be difficult to treat, and often is chronic in many dogs. According to vision4pets.com, this clouding of the cornea is caused by chronic inflammation stemming from a number of possible issues, such as constant irritation from hairs, decreased tears, an incomplete blink reflex, abnormally shaped eyelids or very prominent eyes -such as those seen in pugs and other short-faced breeds. Because its chronic, Kerry likely must be treated with eyedrop solutions like the ones you mentioned, and they are indeed often expensive. Using Similasan may be one option. According to justanswer.coms veterinary section, while this dry-eye treatment is normally for humans, it can be applied to your dogs eyes two or three times a day. The website didnt find Similisan to be very effective, but if its working for Kerry, then its worth a try. Just be sure to tell Kerrys vet that youre using it so that he can monitor its effectiveness and make sure that its safe for your dog. As far as using it long term, definitely consult the vet. Treating pigmentary keratitis properly is important, because not only does it make your dog more comfortable, it also slows or prevents the pigmentation of the cornea, which can cause vision loss.

or plastic. He said Ill use less energy because the dryer wont have to work as hard. Is this true? A: Your guy is right. Using a rigid, smooth wall metal hose/duct will make it easier for moist air to be pushed out of the dryer on its way outside. Flexible ducts have ribs that add resistance to the air flow, so the dryer has to work harder to remove moist air. That can increase your drying time and, so, increase your energy costs. The material choice (metal instead of plastic) is an important one with regard to fire safety. Seeing as youre interested in lowering your drying costs, here are some other energy-saving tips: Clear the lint screen after each load. Clean out the dryer hose of built-up lint as often as the dryer manufacturer recommends. When its time to buy a clothes washer, look for an ENERGY STAR labeled model. These washers use less energy and less water. They also remove more moisture, so you wont need to run your dryer as long. And dont forget that the most energy-efficient dryer is an outdoor clothes line. -Kathleen for The Home Team Q: At this time of year, weve usually been able to stay comfortable turning off the central, natural-gas heat and running a portable electric space heater in whatever room were using. But my daughter is learning about energy at school and she says it will cost less in energy to use the central heat. That makes no sense to me, but I said Id bring it to the experts. What do you say?

Color_3.75 x 1.5 Horizotal_Ask the home Team Icon

Q: Its time to start thinking about replacing my old gas water heater. Can you tell me what I need to look for, to get the most energy-saving model?
BW_3.75 x .625 Horz_Ask the home Team_copy block

A: Sure thing. First, look for models that have earned the ENERGY STAR label. Then, to find the most efficient of those models, compare their Energy Factor (EF). The higher the EF, the more efficient the equipment. You can find ratings for specific products at the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute website: www.ahridirectory.org Also, if you heat your house with a boiler, be aware that an efficient approach in some homes is to use the boiler to also heat water. This entails buying a hot water tank instead of a water heater. This tank, which is typically about the same size as a traditional water heater, is designed to be installed as a new zone off your boiler. Talk to your heating service contractor to see if this is an option for you, and if it would be cost effective. While youre talking with your contractor, ask if an instantaneous or on-demand water heater would be a good choice for your home. This may be an efficient option in some households with smaller hot water needs. Installation can sometimes require upgrading the gas line and/or water-softening system, so be sure that the energy savings would be large enough to make the initial costs a good investment. Lastly, if youre exploring all energysaving approaches, I cant neglect to mention solar water heating. You can learn more about this option at the Renewable Energy Resource Center website: www.rerc-vt.org. -Kathleen for The Home Team Q: A guy at my hardware store said that its better to use rigid metal for my dryer exhaust hose instead of flexible metal

A: Using an electric space heater usually doesnt save you money because electricity is typically one of the most expensive ways to make heat. Theres another factor thats important to be aware of if youre only heating one room at a time. In some houses, rooms that are allowed to get cold can suffer damage, like frozen pipes or cracked plaster or drywall. As notable is the potential problem of condensation forming on cool surfaces. Without enough heat to dry them out, these surfaces can become ideal spots for mold and wood rot. This may happen where you can see it or where you cant -- within the walls, floors, or attic. The likelihood of these problems depends on a number of factors, including the homes insulation, air leakage, and humidity levels. If you decide to not consistently heat a room, see that your houses air sealing and insulation are up to snuff, be sure there are no pipes running through the unheated space (or in its walls, ceiling, or floor). Then, monitor the room for cold surfaces where condensation may form. I hope this answers your question. Thanks for writing. Stay warm! -Li Ling for The Home Team

Q: I recently received a California Faience bowl from a relative who told me it was from the 1920s. I cant find anything about the company in any of my reference books. Can you help me? -- Laura, Earth City, Mo. A: California Faience was a brand that was started in about 1920 by William V. Bragdon and Chauncy R. Thomas at their tile shop in Berkeley, Calif. Pieces of their pottery are generally marked California Faience with a die stamp and are quite collectible. Typical prices are ashtray with stylized dog design in orange matt, $225; and burgundy gloss bowl, $250. *** Q: I have a set of Elsie and Elmer coffee cups that were given away as premiums by the Borden Company. They are mint. -- Milton, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Elsie was introduced during the 1930s as a mascot for the Borden Company. In 1940 she married Elmer, who began promoting Bordens glue. Together they had Beulah. Elmer and Elsie appeared on dozens of products, including, of course,

your coffee cups. I suspect your set of four are worth in the $12 to $20 range. *** Q: I have a set of cuff links that originally belonged to a riverboat captain who worked on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. The set is in a leather case stamped Currier & Ives by Squire and are quite elaborate. Do you have any idea of what they might be worth? -- Michael, Ormond Beach, Fla. A: Eugene Klompus is an expert and collector. His contact information is P.O. Box 5970, Vernon Hills, NJ 60061; genek@justcufflinks.com; and www.justcufflinks.com. *** Q: I have a pocket watch that is marked I.W. Co., Springfield, ILL. The watch is quite heavy and requires a key to engage the spring. What can you tell me about it? -- Dean, Brutus, Mich. A: The Illinois Watch Company was founded in 1872 in Springfield, Ill. In 1928, the company was purchased by the Hamilton Watch Company of Lancaster, Pa. To determine the value of your timepiece, you should show it to a competent jeweler.

Hot weather which tied a record at the E.F. Knapp Airport early last week (Monday afternoon the 16th ) occurred in the middle of a dry stretch. That dry weather parched many stream and river beds and not to mention soils for planting. For some it was far better than the oversaturated grounds from heavy rains just one year ago. So the weather flip switch on extremes across our region continues to show itself. The coldest temperature was on top of Mt . Mansfield when the low fell to just 20 not that unusual. After what had been a predominantly sunny and dry regime, changes with last weekends rains. Hefty rains but boy could we ever use them. The biggest 24 hour total was 1.65 inches in the south central Vermont region.

Last Weeks Weather Hot Dry Start, Wet Cool Finish

394.45 for March. This was a rise of 2.05 parts per million in just one year. A measurement of 350 or less was optimum for a stable climate. 350 parts per million last occurred back in 1987.

Highest temperature: 90 degrees at 9 locations Monday afternoon the 16th Lowest temperature: 20 atop Mount Mansfield Wednesday morning 18th Heaviest melted precipitation:1.65 inches Woodstock Springfield and Cavendish 23rd Heaviest Snowfall: just a trace Mt Mansfield (first time in a long while) Most Snow Depth: 37 inches atop Mount Mansfield Monday afternoon the 16th

Vermont Weather Stats last week ending Monday morning Aril 23rd

Last weeks hottest temperature on planet earth was 113 at Gedaref, Sudan. Last weeks coldest temperature: minus 73 degrees at Vostock Antarctica.

Global Temperature Facts For Last Week

Satellite observations have identified the worlds hottest place, which is actually far hotter than the previously assumed hot spot of El Azizia Libya. That North African city reported a blistering 136 degrees Fahrenheit on Sept. 13, 1922, under questionable exposure conditions for the non-standard thermometer at the time. That leads some to feel that Death Valleys slightly cooler reading of 134 degrees in 1913 is actually the worlds hottest accurate reading. But the U.S. Geological Surveys Landsat satellites have found that Irans Lut Desert reached an utterly astounding 159.3 degrees in 2005. Infrared sensors made the observations possible at a place far from any official weather stations. Luts unique dark-colored landscape readily absorbs solar radiation, letting it heat up far more easily than desert sands, which tend to reflect sunlight. Researchers from the University of Montana found through analysis of Landsat data that the Lut had the highest surface temperature on Earth in five of the seven years from 2003 to 2009. While land-based instruments measure air temperatures about six feet above the ground, Landsat measures land skin temperatures, which reflect the pure heating of the ground by the sun and other influences.

Irans Lut Dessert Actual Hottest Spot Per Satellite Measurement

cases two days totals greater than 2 inches. This same weather system will continue to bring generally cooler than normal weather the middle of the week. Generally cool weather across parts of New England was to finish out the end the month of April. Elevated wet snows, cannot be ruled out, but generally chilly showers more situated to late March should predominate this week. Those higher elevation locations could see a few wet snow flakes, as a broad upper level trough of lower pressure opens up across our region. The late April sunshine will tend to flare up through surface heating where you may also see some graupel or soft hail showers usually pea sized mixed in with the scattered rain showers for Wednesday. Another quick hitter weather system arrives for Thursday into Thursday night. This little weather system, an Alberta Clipper like low may mix with wet snow as well, especially if it heads south of Vermont. Storms tracking north will bring rain.

At this point temperatures were looking more certain for more 60s and 70s as we get into the first week of May. This is part of buildup of warmth that will affect western Canada and most of the interior west this week that drifts east as a leftover trough of low pressure exits out and replaced by a some nice high pressure ridging.
