UVP adds two to staff BRADFORD—Upper Valley Pedi- atrics has added two new providers as one of its existing physicians gets ready to step away. The new providers are Kirsten Grace and Samantha I ngerick. Grace, an APRN, earned her bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University and a master’s degree from the University of Washington in Seattle. From there she returned to the East Coast where she received her RN and NP degrees at Yale University. Grace has experience in pediat- rics, family medicine, and urgent care. When she is not at work, Grace enjoys spending time with her family. She loves working with kids and is very excited to be a part of our practice and community. ACE Ingerick is a pediatric nurse practitioner who earned her RN/BS degrees from the University of Rochester in upstate New York Thus far she has spent most of her career as a pediatric neuro—oncology nurse practitioner at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University in Palo Alto. Ingerick is certified in pediatric primary care and completed her doctor of nursing practice degree in 2019. Having grown up in the Upper Valley, Ingerick is quite familiar with the area. She and her husband have returned to Vermont to be closer to family and‘ are getting reacquainted with snow afier spend- ' ing several years out west. The additions come as Dr. Claire Bolon has been stepping away from the practice. “As many of you already know, over the last few months I have significantly decreased the number of days per week I am working at Upper Valley Pediatrics,” she wrote in a letter to patients. After 30 years of practicing pediatrics, the last eight of which have been with UVP.

Bolon and Yukica took over the practice following Mark Harris’s retirement in 2015. The practice has its main office in Bradford and a satellite office in East Thetford. Jesus’ response was direct. “After looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness ofheart, He said to the man, ‘ Stretch out your hand.’ And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored” (Mark 3 :5). The Pharisees were incensed. They thoroughly misunderstood the Sabbath. The Sabbath is the preeminent day to do what is good and to heal. The Sabbath foreshadows heaven. “There will no longer be any death; there will no , longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain” (Revelation 20: I4). . In this life we may experience healing of soul. In heaven we experience the total healing of our bodies. Imagine, Jesus encourages “waiting eagerly for o‘ur adoption as sons, the redemption ofour body” (Romans 8 :23). ,1, .4,- So you can enjoy: Music ' Crafts o Cards and other games o Gardening - New Friends o Daily Exercise lit? a! home Ilt’l‘t”.

What is it like? Here is a hint. Hebrews 4:9 declares, “There remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.” We thank God this is the case. Heaven is the great and final Sabbath rest. Calling forward a man with a withered hand, Jesus asked the Pharisees, “Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to kill?” (Mark 3 :4). It’s obviously unlawful, immoral, to do harm or to do evil on any day. But what about doing good? What about saving a life? The Pharisees were silent. u Lunch Outings 0 Guest Speakers Hair 8: Nail services Fairlee to develop bike and walk plan F Al RLEE—The town has received nearly $96,000 in state grant funds to develop a plan that will touch on housing, economic, and recreational opportunities. The money comes from a joint program administered by the Vermont Agency of Transportation and the Vermont Agency of Community Development in conjunction with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and the Vermont Department of Health. F airlee received $95,833. The money will be used to create a corridor plan along Route 5 to make it more walk and bike friendly and strengthen the connection between the village, the Connecticut River, and its recreational assets, according to a news release from the town offices. “Vermonters depend upon their transportation system to provide access to work, school, polices and investments in order to grow our economy and improve quality of life for all Vermonters,” said Transportation Secretary Joe Flynn. “This interagency partnership engages local stakeholders long before a shovel ever hits the ground,” said Housing and Community Development Commissioner Josh Hanford. “This empowers communities to design transportation projects that are more equitable to all users, improve public heath, revitalize communities, and clean our waters.” In addition to Fairlee, Middlebury and Northfield were grantees for the annual $280,000 state fund. Middlebury will develop a downtown master plan to enhance the streetscape through green stormwater infrastructure and identify steps to improve the connection to the Otter Creek and bring new business vitality to the desig- nated downtown. Northfield will create a master plan to better connectNorthfield’s villages to one another, Norwich University, and their recreational centers by en- hancing the streetscape and improv- ing the water quality of the Dog River.
