    Hinesburg Artist Creates Bracelets for Sale


    It is no surprise that the month with Valentine’s Day is also Heart Awareness Month. Nearly 5 million Americans are currently living with congestive heart failure (CHF). Approximately 550,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Congestive heart failure affects people of all ages, from children and young adults to the middle-aged and the elderly. Heart failure is responsible for 11 million physician visits each year, and more hospitalizations than all forms of cancer combined. Coronary heart disease alone costs the United States $108.9 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity according to the Centers for Disease Control and emoryhealthcare.org.

    The Love Light Compassion Foundation (LLCF), based in Shelburne, Vermont, was formed in 2014 by South Burlington resident, Tracy Appleton, to address the needs of individuals and their families who are financially adversely affected by a medical diagnosis, such as CHF, in our local and global communities. The Foundation’s goal is to assist those who need emergency financial assistance during a time when they may not be able to earn income or are burdened with additional costs due to their health condition.

  • Good Luck to the VT starters at Austin Cyclocross Nationals!

    Posted by Posted on Thursday, 08 Jan 2015 09:09 AM


    SUNDAY UPDATE: The US Cyclocross Nationals were cancelled this morning due to rain. The latest news is that the races (including Willsey's) that were originally scheduled for today will occur tomorrow (Monday). The course will be rerouted in some places to protect some trees whose roots had become exposed, and some irrigation (sprinkler) systems that had become exposed from bicycle traffic. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department had announced via Twitter on Sunday morning that the races had been canceled “over concerns for the turf and root zone exposure” at Zilker Park. Cyclocross races consist of many laps on a short (1.5–2  mile) course that can feature pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to occasionally get off and carry their bike for a short stretch. The Nationals this year are taking place at Zilker Park, which is owned by the city of Austin, TX. 

    PREVIOUS POST FROM Jan. 8: Cyclocross Nationals started yesterday in Austin, TX, and we wish all starters from VT best of success and a good showing! A number of promising local juniors will toe the start line, after they had a chance to hone the sharp end of their skills over the last couple weeks in Europe.

    Cooper Willsey from Hinesburg had an excellent showing on his second trip to Europe and finished the camp with two top tens in two bpost series races and a near top 15 in the World Cup Zolder. You can read his blog about his experience here: cyclingnews.com/blogs/usa-cycling-cyclo-cross-development-program/usac-cx-devo-blog-tearing-it-up-in-zolder, and also still can support him here: usacycling.rallyme.com/rallies/1165.
