I was a stray from Clarendon and boy do I hope I am never a stray again. Those were some tricky days for me. When I arrived, I had an injured eye. From what the shelter was able to tell I had a gunshot wound in my eye so I’ve had that eye removed now and am doing so well. It hasn’t affected my spirit at all.

The Vermont Eagle | June 16, 2018 • 3Sheldon marks centennial of ‘Great War’ From Staff & News Reports THE V ERMONT EAGLEMIDDLEBURY | Nov. 11, 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I. Starting this July, the Sheldon Museum in Middlebury has combed its collection and archives, along with the help of Addison County private collections, to mount an exhibit that features roles played by Vermonters in what was called the “War to End All Wars.” Titled “Doughboys and Flyboys: World War I Stories by Vermonters from the Home and Battlefront”, the exhibit runs July 31 to Nov. 11, 2018. Included are colorful Great War posters and broadsides which help illustrate the national fervor to support the war effort that swept Vermont. Letters between Dr. Jacob Johnson Ross of Middlebury, flight surgeon for the 17th Aero Squadron stationed in France, and his wife back in Vermont, illustrate their love, his up close view of the fellowship and tragedies of war and her challenges raising three children all under the age of nine. Included in the exhibit are entries from the diaries and letters of a German teen who fought for the fatherland, but after thewar immigrated to America, became a U.S. citizen, earned his graduate degrees and came to Middlebury College where he chaired the German Department and founded the German Language School. War memorabilia from France and Germany will be on display, uniforms, and a segment of “In Flanders Fields,” a war memorial exhibit by accomplished artist Fran Bull of Brandon. Dr. Ross was known among the aviators and ground crews of the U.S. Army’s 17th Aero Squadron that fought on the Western Front during World War I. As a fighter squadron, its mission was to engage and clear enemy aircraft from the skies and provide escort to reconnaissance and bombardment squadrons over enemy territory. It also attacked enemy observation balloons, and perform close air support and tactical bombing attacks of enemy forces along the front lines. The unit achieved a number of firsts. It was the first U.S. aero squadron sent to Canada to be trained by the British; the first squadron to be completely trained prior to be sent overseas with its complete quota of trained pilots; the first squadron to be attached to British Royal Air Force squadrons and the first to be sent into combat.BROWN’S TREE & CRANE SERVICEDr. Jacob Johnson Ross of Middlebury, flight surgeon for the U.S. Army’s 17th Aero Squadron based in France during World War I. From the collection of the Ross familyIn October 1918, the squadron was transferred to the U.S. Second Army 4th Pursuit Group. However, with Second Army’s planned offensive drive on Metz in France cancelled due to the 1918 armistice with Germany, the squadron saw no combat with Second Army. It returned to the United States and was demobilized in April 1919 as part of the demobilization of the Air Service after the war. ■Carpet and Vinyl Flooring Sales Carpet and Vinyl Repair Work Over 45 Years ExperienceCarpet and Vinyl Flooring Installation Fully Insured, References Available Cell (802) 747-8918Serving Vermont and New York for 42 YearsThe Carpet King of Vermont For Royal Treatment, See The Carpet King of Vermont Only The Best Can Carry The CrownReasonable Rates Our Service Available Year-Round 172889453-3351 - Office 363-5619 - CellTo be continued.

Shapiro Award Breast Cancer BookletPublished by New Market Press, Inc.addison-eagle.com/opinionsFrom the editorSaving a heritage of cemeteries Unless we have a loved one buried there, it’s easy to avoid visiting an old cemetery we have no connection with. Yet there’s a lot of history buried in Vermont’s cemeteries which include celebrities, such as the late, 1960s, ‘70s tough-guy movie actor Charles Bronson’s final resting place in Brownsville, to Revolutionary spy and pioneer Ann Story’s humble grave in Middlebury’s old Forestdale District cemetery. Whistling past a cemetery could be for the simple reason that we don’t like to be reminded of our own mortality or perhaps it may be stir up traumatic, early childhood experiences with the passing of loved ones. Now thanks to the efforts of dedicated, historyminded Vermonters like Ed Larson of Rutland, many of our old cemeteries are finally getting the preservation and honor they deserve. Mr. Larson resides in Rutland City, about seven blocks from the West Street Cemetery. While his father, a World War II D-Day veteran is buried in Evergreen Cemetery, just about a mile from the West Street Cemetery, his attention has been in saving the West Street grounds.Guest viewpoint“We started this Legacy Cemetery initiative (to save West Street Cemetery) several years ago when I was on the Rutland Board of Alderman,” he told the Eagle. “Somewhere along the line it got sidetracked, so we rewrote the application and requested Mayor David Allaire to submit it. He did so and should be commended for his efforts to recognize a Legacy Cemetery in this city, as well as increasing the cemetery’s maintenance budget from $4,500 to $6,500.” Among the many souls at perpetual rest in the historic Rutland cemetery is Gov. Israel Smith. Mr. Larson has also helped erect Vermont’s newest historical marker at West Street, honoring our first Congressman and fourth governor. Israel Smith was a lawyer and politician starting when Vermont was an independent nation. He held a variety of positions in the state, including the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as a member of the U.S. Senate, and as governor of Vermont. “Smith began his political career in 1785 when he served as a member of the Republic of Vermont’s House of Representatives,” according to the National Governor’s Association. “He served in the VermontScott’s 10 vetoes State Headliners By Guy PageAt the AFCP Award Ceremony held April 20, 2017 The Vermont Eagle received 6 awards.

Every veto, as well as excerpts from the governor’s explanations of his decisions, appears below. H.196, Paid family leave. Gov. Scott explains: “I have repeatedly voiced that I would be - and still am - open to working to create a State-run, voluntary system which provides this type of benefit for individuals who choose to invest a portion of each pay check, while allowing others to opt-out.” H.911, Changes in personal income tax and education financing, and H.924, the 2019 state budget. Gov. Scott explains: “My primary objection to [these two] bills is that to-gether they result in an unnecessary and avoidable $33 million increase in statewide property tax rates. “We have, in this fiscal year, approximately $160 million more in revenue than last year. This additional revenue breaks down as follows: - $82 million more from organic economic growth and federal tax reform, $34 million in unanticipated funds from the Attorney General’s tobacco settlement, and $44 million in surplus revenue recently added to the budget. .40, Increasing the minimum wage to $15 by 2024. Gov. Scott explains: “I believe the bill is more likely to harm those it intends to help, weaken small businesses and the economy as a whole, and deepen the economic inequality that exists between Chittenden County and other counties in the state.” S.105, Consumer justice enforcement. Gov. Scott explains: “Vermont’s outdoor recreation economy and non-House again from 1788 to 1791.
