Beach Etiquette 101

first_imgThe awnings begin to be hung, the seagrass shows hints of green, the small buds on the trees across the street begin to emerge; each weekend signs of the season are all around us as summer residents arrive. I often sit and watch in amazement as they slowly unload furniture, umbrellas, flower pots, porch rugs and hurricane lanterns.  It is as if I am watching a clown car being unloaded, it always makes me laugh, smile, and reminisce about long warm days spent in soft sand, soon to be had again.Memories of boogie board lady, bocce’ ball man, “The Hoff,” and Magda from “Something About Mary,” draw a belly laugh. Let’s not forget her on again-off again gentleman friend, always dressed in freshly pressed khakis, a Members Only jacket and a crisp white bucket hat.  We hope to see each of the characters on the beaches our family has called our own over the course of our years living on the island.  We look forward to seeing ageless mother, who each summer appears with yet another baby on her hip, the string bean shaped twins looking less and less alike after each school year, and the grandmother getting frailer, each summer. We always breathe a sigh of relief as she makes the slow steady walk to her chair to enjoy the sounds of summer and the smiles on their multiplying faces yet again. They are all back yet again to enjoy our island for the summer.Beach stories and the characters in them have grown into legendary tales in our family. It has been told that a haggard mother of nine once chained her youngest to a stake firmly planted in the beach sand.  He did however have a ten foot length of leash attached so he could properly enjoy the beach, so it was okay. Her brother in law, visiting from out of town, was aghast.  He immediately removed young Marty from his tether.  Looking up, the mother said “well then you can watch him, you’ll see.”  Not ten minutes later the wild child was back on the leash, the uncle did not return to the beach for the duration of his visit.  There is the story of the family consisting of five siblings and their spouses with 13 young children between them who had their offspring use, what was affectionately known as the poop tent.  I don’t think that one requires further explanation…  Friends have told me stories of the pickle eating gentleman who sidles up as closely as he can to anyone who will listen summer after summer; crunching pickle after pickle. Rumor has it a young man, who had decided flip flops were not the proper footwear for him, once performed an elaborate dance across the burning hot sand.   In between screaming as the sand scalded his delicate feet he would throw his beach chair a few feet, then would hop onto it for relief, jump into the sand only to perform the dance again.In between all the folklore, legends, and comical stories are thoughts of the flawless beach day. Riding that pristine wave, the dreamy nap, the precisely prepared beach sandwich, the memorable time spent with family, friends, and beach friends who have become family. These days are precious, few and far in between.  Mind the rules:Kite flying- don’t fly this directly over top of beachgoers, especially if you plan on getting fancy with your technique, or lack of…Umbrellas- simply poking this into the sand does not anchor it into the sand.Radios- enjoy your music, remember others don’t necessarily want to.Smoking- see number 3, insert the word cigarette.Seagulls- if you feed them once this does not mean they will go away.Jetties- don’t walk out onto them, it is not safe, there is a reason signs are posted.Swim in front of the guard- once I overheard someone wondering why people would swim in that one crowded area?Beach attire- some things can’t be unseen.Trash- no explanation needed, it wasn’t there when you sat down so shouldn’t be there when you stand up to leave.Make each beach visit into your perfect day- Labor Day comes too fast.Each spring an old friend texts me with an update on how many days we have left until Memorial Day. I haven’t heard from her just yet, all I know is that we are almost there and I can’t wait…For information on downsizing, organization, or redesigning your beach house Maureen can be reached at: [email protected]last_img read more

Distribution watch

first_imgThe Freight Transport Association (FTA) has this month criticised the government’s decision to increase fuel duty by 2p per litre.FTA director of external affairs Geoff Dossetter told British Baker: “Significant increases in fuel prices are bad news for bakery and ingredient distributors.”Almost everything the nation consumes every day of the year is the product of a lorry journey and the government will now increase the cost of all of those journeys.”As of 1 October, fuel duty on diesel increased to 50.35p per litre, the highest rate in Europe, where the average level is 22.7p per litre, the FTA said.The cost of oil itself on the world market is now over $79 (£39) per barrel and has increased by almost 14% over the last month. The current price of a litre of bulk diesel is 79.68p per litre excluding VAT, which is only just below the record levels seen in May 2006.World prices remain extremely volatile. The 2p-per-litre rise in fuel duty will increase the annual operating costs of one 44-tonne articulated lorry by £870 to £35,600, said the FTA.Significantly, the 2p-per-litre fuel duty increase takes the pump price of diesel to over £1 per litre – no doubt to be quickly followed by petrol, said the FTA.”It is very disappointing that at a time of such turbulence in world oil prices, the government has chosen to impose a further increase in costs for industry,” added Dossetter. “Even at this late stage, the government should recognise the extent of the problem and reconsider imposing this unnecessary increase in fuel duty.”last_img read more

Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie offers farewell remarks

first_imgLieutenant Governor Brian Dubie offered his farewell remarks in the Vermont State Senate Chamber this afternoon. Dubie served eight years as the state’s second in command.Good AfternoonThank you for the opportunity to serve you as your Lieutenant Governor for the last eight years.It has been a privilege to have the opportunity to serve our state in elected office.I would like to recognize a few special people who are here this afternoon.My wife, Penny and my daughters, Emily and Casey ‘ my brother, Gen. Mike Dubie — Gen. Jon Farnham, who has just returned from a year of service in Afghanistan, and Martha Hanson, my Chief of Staff and Only Staff.And a special salute to Lieutenant Governor-elect Phil Scott. Congratulations, Phil.# # #Some of you have served for many years; others will start your service here in Montpelier today. As I conclude my service as your Lieutenant Governor, I would like to recognize the service of some special Vermonters.We members of the American Legion have a saying: ‘many gave some, some gave all’. The mother of a fallen service member is given the title of ‘Gold Star Mother’A Gold Star Mother named Marion Gray is with us today. Marion and Steve lost their son, Army Sgt. Jamie Gray, in Iraq, on June 07, 2004. He was 29 years old.Marion has chosen to serve others.In May 2006, Vermont’s Gold Star families chartered a bus together to go to the National Day of Remembrance in Washington DC.Army Spc. Chris Merchant died in Ar Ramadi, Iraq, on March 1, 2006. His parents, Gary and Janet, wrote at the time, ‘This weekend we find ourselves on a bus with many people just like us. They know and feel the same things as we do. We see that it is okay to cry, to laugh, to joke, to live.’From that bus ride the Vermont Fallen Families was born, with Marion Gray as its binding force.Last November 11, Vermont dedicated a new Vermont Global War on Terror Memorial at the Veterans Cemetery in Randolph, dedicated to all the state’s military who have served in war since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.The Grays, the Merchants, Ray DeGiovine, and all the other Gold Star families made the memorial at the Vermont State Cemetery a reality. Ray’s 25-year-old son, Marine Corporal Christopher DeGiovine, was killed in Anbar province in 2007. We must never forget these brave Vermonters and their sacrifice. Marion, thank you for your service. Thank you to all of Vermont’s Fallen Families.Another Gold Star Mother that I would like to recognize is Vicky Strong.Nate and Vicky Strong lost their son, Marine Sgt. Jesse Strong, in Iraq on January 26, 2005. He was 24. Jesse was loved by his community, and by his fellow students at Liberty University. Vicky has chosen to serve her state in a new way. She will serve alongside you here in Montpelier, as a member of the House from Albany, Vermont. She has much to offer. Vicky, we wish you the best of luck as you open a new chapter of service here in Montpelier.# # #On Monday, Sept. 19, 2005 Army Lieutenant Mark Dooley was killed in Ar Ramadi, Iraq. Mark was 27 years old.Mark’s mom, Marion said, “Mark had a unique sense of dedication, care and responsibility toward his family, friends, his military companions and his country. I remember the sensitivity in which he gave me a sealed envelope prior to his deployment to Iraq and his request that I promise not to open it unless he did not return. As promised, this document was only opened after his death and I am confident that sharing it will allow everyone to have the insight into the remarkable person who was my son.”In that letter, Mark wrote, “Mom, I have no delusions that reading or even hearing this letter read can fill my absence. Please forgive me for not being able to be there; but also remember that my leaving was in the service of something that we loved, and that most people can’t comprehend its scope. Cherish in your heart that it wasn’t done for any abstract reason like a flag or a foreign government’s success, but our sacred honor.”Friend and fellow Wilmington police officer Greg Murano now organizes an annual 5K race in Wilmington. A portion of this year’s proceeds was donated to help complete the Vermont Global War on Terror Memorial. His service has life and meaning.Kyle Gilbert was a soldier from Brattleboro. Sadly, Kyle was killed in Iraq on August 6, 2003. He was 20 years old. His mother Regina wrote me a letter that I would like to share with you today.She wrote: ‘I want you to hear this, my dream, I really never thought I would have a dream but now I do, I will one day travel to the road my son was on, on 6 Aug 2006, and touch and feel the ground he where he took his last breath, feel his pain and pray for him on that night. When Iraq is free, I will prevail and make my dream come true, please be there with me’.After Kyle’s death, Regina’s husband Herbert chose to join the Guard and was deployed to Afghanistan for a year. I received a text message from Regina when Herbert landed in the United States after his year in Afghanistan. Please join me in thanking Herbert for his service and Regina for her dream.We all need a dream to focus our service. What is your dream?# # #I would also like to recognize another special mother. She lived in Bennington. Her name was Sally Goodrich.Sally and Don Goodrich lost their son, Peter, on September 11, 2001. Peter was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175, the second plane to crash into the World Trade Center towers in New York City.Shortly after Peter’s death, Sally learned she had ovarian cancer.Reflecting on her situation then Sally said, ‘Everything was destroyed, my life, my faith, my ability to live. I had nothing left.’‘Then in August 2004, a friend of Peter’s who served as a Marine major in Afghanistan sent an e-mail asking the Goodrich family to collect supplies for the children of a village in dire need of assistance.‘That was the beginning,’‘ Sally said then. ‘I call it the moment of grace. I knew Peter would have responded to that e-mail. I knew I had to, in his name. For the first time, I felt Peter’s spirit back in my life.’‘Peter’s father Donald said, ‘Peter was always searching for a better understanding of the human condition, suddenly it shone upon us, that here is a path that Peter would be on. Because he would be on that path, we were going to take it.’‘To honor his memory, the Sally and Donald created the Peter M. Goodrich Foundation, and conducted fund-raising to build and support three schools and an orphanage in Afghanistan.Don says, ‘Sally saw a need or saw something that would be fun, and that big old Irish smile would come out and things would happen.’‘Sally says of her work in Afghanistan, ‘I wouldn’t say it was a journey of faith, but I would say it was a journey that restored my faith, and it also changed my faith. I think about my faith, and I think about God in more open ways than I did before. I don’t know how to explain it except to say that my faith is now about action to help people. Helping these children with education, which is the future of Afghanistan, gave us our lives back. I’m so lucky to have found that. I don’t know how to thank them.’‘ Sally passed away on December 19, 2010.Thank you, Sally.We face challenges in our state. You have run for office to serve. The lives of these special Vermonters serve as inspiration to all of us. Each had a dream, like each of you. Each took a first step, like each of you. Each faced setbacks, as you will, and each served in a special way. Each of you can and will serve in a special way.These Vermonters made a difference. So will you.The Vermont State Senate lost its guiding beacon last August. David Gibson served as Secretary of the Senate from 2000 till the time of his death.When I was first elected lieutenant governor, the presiding officer over the Vermont Senate, I must admit I had never been in this Senate chamber.I met David, and David explained Mason Rules, rules of the Vermont Senate, the unwritten rules, and the traditions of the Vermont Senate.It has been my privilege for the last eight years to learn the traditions of the Vermont Senate. They were written on the heart of David Gibson.For the past half-century, Ernest ‘ David’s father; Robert ‘ David’s brother; and David wrote those rules and kept them alive.David really only had one rule. It ruled his entire life and was the basis for all the rules of the Senate: Do unto others as you have them do unto you.We serve in a legislature where strongly held beliefs carried by strong-minded people are bound to clash.David Gibson was a beacon of kindness, grace and integrity.He made us all better people than we would have been without his friendship. And we all loved him for this.David, we will miss you.May God bless you.I know that David would approve of your choice to succeed him, former state senator John Bloomer. John, I know you will wear the mantle well. Congratulations, and best wishes to you.I would also like to recognize and thank those others who serve year in year out to keep this chamber working well.Assistant Senate Secretary Steve Marshall.Journal Clerk Vanessa Davison.Calendar Clerk Priscilla Alexander.Office Assistant Roxy QueroCornelius Reed, Theresa Randall, and our Doorkeepers and pages.Thank you all for your service to our state.Serving in elected office is a unique way to serve one’s fellow citizens.But there are many ways to serve. I look forward to assisting Vermont by continuing my work with our friends in Quebec. Next time you are in Quebec City, look in the phonebook; I have a lot of cousins up there.As I reflect on my service, many have asked me about my post-election thoughts.Here is my perspective. I have run for office and lost before.As a matter of fact, one man I lost to will soon be Vermont’s new Secretary of Human Services. In November 2000, I lost to a fine gentleman named Doug Racine.A few months later, in April 2001, I was on a long run on Miami Beach, training for an upcoming marathon, on a layover with my airline job. I must admit, I was thinking about the election when a frantic boy ran up to me, asking for my help.I followed this young person to the water’s edge — looked out ‘ and saw three heads in the water a couple of hundreds yards out. Immediately, I headed out into the surf. As I swam out, I thought of the advice of my loving wife Penny — who happens to have been a lifeguard. ‘Never go in the water without a floatation device’– and I am thinking, ‘What do I do now honey? Oh well,’ I think, as I keep swimming.Soon, I had reached the first person in the water. It was a school-aged girl, and the look in her eyes confirmed that she was in trouble. Just like my wife predicted, she grabbed me frantically with her arms and legs around my neck. Fortunately, I was able to get her to shore.Then I headed back into the water, to assist another rescuer who had followed me out to bring the next young girl in.The short version of this story is my girl made it, and the second girl did not. I was on that beach because I had lost an election.The way I see it is, there is another person, on another beach for each one of us. Our job is look for the person and do our best in that moment.Marion, Vicky, Regina and Sally by their service remind us that there are many ways to serve. Thank you all for your service. I wish you the best of luck. God Bless you all.# # #last_img read more

Does your overdraft solution pass the pandemic stress test?

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Richard Miller Richard joined JMFA after a 23-year career in banking, providing JMFA and our clients with a broad base of management experience in community banking, from chief lending officer to president … Web: www.jmfa.com Details Due to the impact the spread of coronavirus has had on the U.S. economy thus far, unemployment claims have surged well beyond expectations. More than 30 million Americans have applied for government aid since mid-March, according to recent Department of Labor data. This doesn’t account for individuals who are newly unemployed, haven’t yet filed for unemployment benefits, or who may be impacted before the pandemic subsides.As restaurants, retail stores, recreational facilities and travel-related businesses remain closed or operate on a limited basis due to the pandemic, many individuals and families continue to struggle with how to pay for rent, groceries, medication, insurance and other necessities. With continued uncertainty in other affected industries, the economic impact on consumers continues to become more widespread.In such uncertain times, your members need reliable programs and services to help them meet their ongoing financial obligations and provide for their families. Unfortunately, overdraft programs that are based solely on analytics and data aren’t prepared to address the situation many people find themselves in today.Non-disclosed service parameters lead to confusion and limit financial certaintyDue to unexpected reductions in work hours, furloughs and layoffs, some members—many of whom have never had an interruption in their paychecks—are experiencing lower than normal, or no regular checking account deposits. An overdraft program with variable limits—that change based on a pre-determined algorithm—automatically reduces a member’s access to overdraft coverage when his or her balance dips below a certain level. Or, the privilege is removed completely, at a time when it is needed most.Programs based solely on analytics also lack the ability to provide personalized service or consider important aspects of a person’s overall financial health or extenuating circumstances—such as their ability to repay—or something as financially devastating as the situation so many Americans find themselves in today.Without knowing what their overdraft limit will be from one day to the next—or if they will have protection at all, how can consumers feel confident making the necessary purchases they may need to get through the uncertain weeks and months ahead?Are you providing your members with financial peace of mind?As you consider all the reasonable and prudent steps you can take to assist those who are affected by the coronavirus, consider this: Now, more than ever, they may need the option of an overdraft service they can rely on and trust. A consumer-focused overdraft strategy provides clear disclosures, ongoing communication and guidance to help individuals solve their financial challenges with features like:upfront program details;fully disclosed limits;reasonable fees;neutral transaction posting order that does not maximize fees;on-going communication regarding account status;access to other services provided to meet individual circumstances; andtracking that alerts your institution to potential situations where credit counseling may be beneficial.Address uncertainty with services that provide financial stabilityThere’s a lot of speculation in the industry about how the coronavirus pandemic might change the way financial institutions operate going forward. One thing that shouldn’t change is the ongong commitment to providing fully disclosed services to help consumers who may be hit with unexpected financial situations or need extra support during these difficult times.When all is said and done—and things return to a more stable situation— will your members be able to look back on how your credit union’s overdraft solution provided the support and service they needed? The measures you take today can strengthen the value you provide and give them confidence that you’ll be there should unexpected financial circumstances happen in the future.last_img read more
