first_imgDR. ROGER YOUNG ELECTED TO NATIONAL BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF MARCH OF DIMESBurlington, Vermont – Roger C. Young, MD, PhD, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and Director of Vermont Perinatal Care at Fletcher Allen Health Care, has been elected to the national Board of Trustees of the March of Dimes Foundation, during their annual summer meeting. March of Dimes trustees, who serve as volunteers, represent the public in governing the organization and advancing its mission and serve five-year terms. “Dr. Young is committed to the core mission of the March of Dimes. We look forward to working with him over the next five years,” said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, President of the March of Dimes. Dr. Young has reviewed scientific grant applications for the March of Dimes for six years, and has been a member of the organization’s Scientific Advisory Committee since 2006. During his career, which also has included academic appointments at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center; Medical University of South Carolina; and Duke Medical Center, Dr. Young has conducted basic and translational research, culminating in a five-year National Institute of Health-sponsored research project on the physiology of the uterus. He is a recognized leader in the field of uterine physiology of pregnancy, and has a long-range goal of decreasing the rising rates of premature birth in the United States – also a component of the mission of the March of Dimes. He has published 41 peer-reviewed articles and dozens of abstracts, and has presented at numerous national and international meetings. He has also co-edited one book. Dr. Young is a graduate of McDaniel College, Western Maryland College, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He and his wife, Dr. Kathryn Schwarzenberger, have three children and live in South Burlington, Vermont. In accepting the new position, Dr. Young noted: “I am honored to have been elected to the March of Dimes Board of Trustees. One of the major goals of the March of Dimes is to reduce the rate of preterm births, reduce the complications of prematurity, and help each baby get the best possible start on life. Despite decades of research, prematurity rates are sadly rising in the US, and it feels as if we are losing the battle. The March of Dimes has recently renewed its efforts, and stated bold new goals, to reduce prematurity. To accomplish these goals will require a broad spectrum of help – from volunteers, administrators, businesses, and most importantly, individual contributors. It is a wonderful organization, and I am looking forward to helping in any way.” The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies(r), the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. In Vermont, the March of Dimes is investing over $935,000 in 2008 to further its mission within local communities, including two major research projects at UVM College of Medicine and several local community projects.

Kootenay Lake Fishing Report — Rainbows coming out to play

first_imgIt’s time for another boat load of fishing information from Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Sportfishing. Now that summer is over what better time is there to get out in the boat for some fishing.We’re back from the coast. And a busy summer it was.  Our boat kept busy every day on the ocean, and our boats kept steady at home on Kootenay Lake and Columbia River. The ocean threw some curveballs at us this year.  July was a very windy month on the West coast and made for some tougher conditions.  And when the weather cooperated, the fish decided to be stubborn and make us work very hard for our catch. It seemed like the fish were holding in areas just beyond our reach for a while.  And our usual expectations were a lot harder to meet this year. However, we did manage to have quit a few good days mixed in with the slower days.  Fish would show up for a couple days, then move on.  So, we found ourselves catching our limits on some days in a few hours, but other days we would have to work harder for our fish.  Makes the sales pitch for booking three days seem a lot more reasonable. After the tough conditions of July, we found ourselves with better conditions and better fishing during August.  In fact, the last three weeks of our summer were the best three weeks.  Seemed like the fish were showing up later than normal. Halibut fishing was good when we planned the time for it.  However a lot of days we spent longer hours trying for our salmon and left not a lot of time to target halibut.  But, when we did target halibut, the fishing was great.  Some groups managed to land 5 or 6 big halibut each day.  In fact, one of my regular groups ended up with over 100 pounds of fillets of halibut one day.  So, it just proved that you have to put your time in.  Another good reason to plan on a three-day trip. Our biggest Salmon this year was just over 33 pounds. And our biggest Halibut this year was around 72 pounds. Just below the maximum size limit. So, to sum it up,  the season started out slow, but ended with a bang.  It’s different every year.  Here’s hoping next year starts with the bang and continues throughout. Thank you to everyone who joined me this year!  Looking forward to next year already. And now back to the Kootenays.  Kootenay Lake: Our guides were kept busy with tourists this summer.  July saw some good days of catching 10 or more fish.  A mix of Rainbows and Bull trout manage to keep everyone busy.  Then in August, as the water temperatures really warmed up, we were catching more Bull Trout than rainbows.  But still enough fish to keep the clients happy. And now that September is almost over, we have noticed a drop in water temperature, and the rainbows are starting to come out to play again.  Our last few trips since I’ve been back have yielded up to 10 fish a day, with a good mix of Rainbows and bull Trout. The fishing should only get better as the water cools.  Looking forward to our fall fishery.  Columbia River: The river produced fish all summer long.  We would get a good run of consistent fishing as long as the water levels remained consistent.  Rainbows and walleye up to five poundsare stacked up right now, and the fishing should be good for both throughout October. Look forward to what the river has to offer in the next couple months. Stay tuned……………  What are they biting on ??? On Kootenay, we are catching most of our Bull Trout on the usual flasher/hoochie combo on the down rigger.  We have also had good luck with our Lyman plugs down 60 – 120 feet. The Rainbows have been hitting the down rigger as well. Some of my favourite Gibbs Delta spoons have been working well on the rainbows, as well as the flasher/hoochie combo. Some fish are starting to come to the surface again as well.  We have caught a few Rainbows each day on our buck tail flies as well as some smaller hockey sticks and spoons. On the river, we have been catching most rainbows on small spoons or spinners, as well as on the fly. Also, the walleye have been hitting regularly on rubber twister tails on a jig or on a bottom bouncer with worm.  Both techniques have worked well. That sums it up for now. Lets get out there.
