Need a vehicle? Here are some tips to help out

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Elsie Lynn Parini



Buying a vehicle is not simple. Customers have to make endless decisions — new or used; lease or buy; what size, make, model and color; how many miles; what year; and how much can you pay … The list goes on, and it’s intimidating.

The Outside Story: Only four seasons? Look again to see the micro-seasons in between

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



n Outside story 10-5.jpg

Preparing your fireplace or stove for the season

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



Fireplaces and wood-burning stoves not only can be beautiful focal points within a home, but they also provide an additional source of heat and can be used to keep rooms or entire homes comfortable without the need for additional and potentially costly heating sources.

Older Vermonters can prevent falls

Posted on November 6, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



BURLINGTON — As we get older, our bodies, our sense of balance, and gravity all seem to conspire to cause us to fall more frequently — sometimes resulting in injuries that have a long-term impact on our health and quality of life. Last month, more than three dozen people gathered in Montpelier to celebrate the 10th annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day, and to raise awareness of healthy aging strategies and activities available to older Vermonters. Governor Phil Scott declared September as Falls Prevention and Awareness Month.
