    Hinesburg 4-H Club Says, “Don’t forget us at the county fair…”
    BY HINESBURG 4-H CLUB REPORTER CORINNA HOBBS

    We contribute to the parades at the county fairs to remind you we are here.  At the Addison County Fair and Field Days the sheep tent is in the back, up the hill, far away from the entrance…so most fairgoers miss us.  Sometimes the public is just caught up in the rides and food vendors.  Being in the parade is a way for us to show you there are living animals at the fair, not just flashing lights and electronic carnival attractions.

    FROM VT FISH AND WILDLIFE PRESS RELEASE

    Vermont’s bear hunting season starts September 1, and hunters can improve their chances if they scout ahead of time to find fall foods such as wild apples, beechnuts, acorns, and berries -- where bears will be feeding.

    “Fall foods for bears are more scarce than they were last year,” said Vermont’s bear biologist Forrest Hammond.  “Bears will be feeding along power lines and in forest openings and old fields where berries and apples can be found as well as in forested beech and oak stands.  They also are likely to be feeding more on standing corn this year.”

  • Commentary: Time for a National Service

    When I turned 18, my stepfather drove me to Hyde Park to apply for my draft card. When it came, I looked at it and asked him why I was 4-A unlike all my friends who were 1-A. He explained that I was the sole surviving son of a veteran killed in action and therefore was fit for service but couldn’t be drafted. I burst into tears and hid my draft card from my friends, who all bore theirs proudly. A few years later when I was in college and all my friends were drawing lots to see who’d be sent to Viet Nam, I was jubilant and waved my draft card at everyone.
