Shy dog takes major leap to self confidence

Super Trudy 2.jpg

Trudy is a border collie mix whom we adopted four years ago when living in Vancouver, British Columbia.

When she first came to live with us, Trudy was prohibitively shy — she would roll on her back submissively when meeting any new person or even at the sight of another dog. It made it nearly impossible to take her out of the house.

Over the years and with plenty of exposure to love and attention, Trudy has become a different dog.

Color and whimsy inhabit work of 77-year-old artist

Posted on June 1, 2015 |
By Christy Lynn



maxine IMG_0296.jpg

“The secret is you have to keep your head going,” says 77-year-old Maxine Davis, a retired psychologist from Ferrisburgh who now spends much of her time making art. “You have to keep doing things, going after things, being curious.”

Davis’ art medium is glass, although she has experimented over the years with painting, fiber arts and other crafts. She has a home studio that her husband (who will be 90 years old this summer) built as a small addition to the house initially and then extended as Maxine’s passion grew.

Hobbies keep you young

As the prospect for retirement nears, whether you’re 63 or 80, hobbies and pastimes become more and more priceless in terms of personal enjoyment and fulfillment. The challenge is to pursue ones that last a lifetime.

Power weight-lifting is out after age 70 or so for most, but bird-watching is definitely in and, like gardening, can have moments of adventure, excitement and physical activity, not to mention years of satisfaction.

Ilsley Library's gardens have a special keeper

Anna Benson 1.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Anna Rose Benson has been meticulously tending to the gardens around the Ilsley Public Library in downtown Middlebury since the early 2000s.

Her love for the gardens is contagious; she radiates joy each minute she spends planning the space, digging the soil and encouraging each bud and blossom with her care.

“Do you know the book ‘Corduroy’ about the bear?” Benson asked. In the book a teddy bear named Corduroy waits on the shelf in a department store for someone to come and take him home.

Pets bring joy to local workplaces and increase productivity

Pets in the workplace Boomer and Ladybug.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Animal lovers will often describe time spent around their beloved pets as therapeutic, calming, uplifting and stress-relieving.

For folks that leave their pets at home during the workday, there’s often a sense of hurry when leaving the office so as to give a friendly hello to that familiar face that’s waiting to greet one at the door.

Increasingly, however, workplaces are opening their doors and their policies to pets at work and are seeing some positive results.

Roch with Elisabeth_039.jpg

Chuck Miller wrote about it in his 1956 song “bright red convertible”.

Prince wrote about it in “little red corvette” in 1986.

There’s just something alluring about a little red car that few can deny. It always catches the eye and makes both women and men swoon.

One such local beauty belongs to Rock MacIntyre of MacIntyre Fuels in Middlebury. “Her name is Elisabeth — or Betty,”MacIntyre says, “with the top down.”

BRIDPORT — Sometimes the best ideas come just before a breakdown.

You’re at the end of your rope and you’re either going to break down or break through.

Nancy Sunderland is one of the fortunate who broke through.

Sunderland, 37, is a native Vermonter who grew up in Essex Junction to French Canadian parents who had emigrated from Quebec.

Toward the end of high school, Sunderland reviewed her options and made a decision that surprised several people around her: She enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Platform tennis: Dark, cold and a whole lot of fun

Posted on February 2, 2015 |
By Christy Lynn



Paddleball3637.jpg

Platform tennis is an unusual sport because it seems that those who have been exposed to it quickly become obsessed; everyone else has never heard of it.

The rules of the game are much like doubles tennis and the court looks very similar, albeit about a third the size of a tennis court and built on a platform (hence the name) with 12-foot-tall walls that come up on all sides made out of chicken wire fencing that is held in high tension so that players can hit the ball as it bounces off the wire (similar to racquetball or squash).

Christy Lynn: in praise of cold weather

Posted on February 2, 2015 |

Christy.jpg

I love cold weather. Maybe it’s because I was born in January, or maybe it’s the part of me that kind of likes it when things are a little hard, but either way, it makes me feel alive.

I admit that there are times when it’s hard to leave a cozy perch with a blanket on the couch in pursuit of a venture outside when temperatures are in the single digits and the wind is whipping through the trees.

Enter Trudy, my energetic border collie, who provides the nudge to get me in motion on even the coldest days.
