Big plans -- in downtown Burlington. The mall -- getting a major makeover. An investment of 200-million dollars from both the city of Burlington and the owners of Burlington Town Center will totally change the look of the mall -- to include a wide range of new amenities. Don Sinex bought the mall in 2013. He says his ideas for the mall align with Mayor Miro Weinberger's plan -- BTV initiative -- with a top goal of spurring economic growing in the city. Sinex estimates his renovations could make the mall worth 450 million dollars per year in economic activity.

(9:03 Don Sinex/Owner Burlington Town Center)(("you know there is a need for housing in this city. We therefore conclude that housing should be a part of our project.)) (16:10 Kelly Devine/Burlington Business Associatino)(("Downtow ns that don't evolve, usually don't grow and prosper.)) (19:05 Joan Shannon/president city council)(("- the mall is currently a grand obstruction to our existing grid. 19:17- cherry and bank streets are locked and imperviousness.")) Sinex hopes the renovations will encourage more activity on Cherry and Bank Streets and open them up to bikers and pedestrians. The renovations will also include a new roof-top park between Macy's and Church Street. Sinex estimates the renovation will include 250 apartment units and could create over 1000 new jobs in the Queen City. As Sinex said, a convention-style hotel with 250 rooms and large showrooms is a possibility as well. The additional parking will likely come In the form of a new underground garage with 950 parking spaces. The towncenter has not undergone a renovation of this size since it opened in 1976. The city and Sinex will present the final plans to the Bulington City Council in December.

All is quiet at the Vermont State Veterans Cemetery in Randolph Center except for the the flags fluttering in the wind. ((nat sot of the flags)) It's the final resting spot for those who have served their country. Hundreds of headstones dot the landscape. (00:24:39:00) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, It's going to be cold. )) Three miles away, Napoleon Pietryka, Nap for short, is getting ready for another day up the hill. (00:24:55:11) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, so are we going first today? )) Joining his fellow veterans. (00:05:55:15) ((Joe: why is it important for you to be an honor guard? Nap: Very simple, it's the right thing to do. )) Nap has been trying to do the right thing ever since he was a young boy in West Rutland. (00:08:56:00) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, My mother died at 2 years old, when I was two years old. )) It was up to Nap's 16-year-old sister to take care of her father and raise the three younger boys. (00:09:58:00) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, You imagine a 16 year old the burden on her and somehow this had an affect on me,that you got to help people, we are all in this together. )) Nap married his childhood sweetheart Agnes, joined the Marines and raise 6 kids. He retired from Vermont Technical College where he taught mechanical engineering. Years later, at a friend's military burial, he noticed something that bothered him. (00:14:42:00) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, I said, gee this isn't right, it just, it wasn't right! )) Just two active military members where folding the American flag. The bare bones for a service. Nap took charge and formed an honor guard unit with the American Legion Post in town. That was five years ago. (00:47:16:04) ((Joe Carroll/WCAX, Nap estimates he's done this honor guard service 500 times for his fellow veterans and he can count on his hand how many times he missed it.)) (00:20:06:01) (( Nap sitting down in chair to read. Alright!)) When the numbers of volunteers started to wane, Nap wrote this in the local newspaper. (00:20:33:00) ((Nap reading, The honor guards needs more volunteers. )) Even though Nap's eyesight is failing, the 85 year old feels obligated to continue to serve. He would just like more people to do the same. (00:21:25:00) ((Nap reading, It is a job with no pay, but a lot of satisfaction that what we are doing is worthwhile. )) Today it's a funeral for a veteran who served over 20 years in the Air Force. (00:27:45:04) (( pulling out gun from van.)) (00:27:58:00) ((nat sot of trigger guard.)) (00:28:11:09) ((nat sot of other guy prepping gun)) Nap is preparing for a bitter cold service. (00:29:50:03) ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, Well my figures are already cold! )) The honor guards march a short distance to the burial. (00:31:49:10) ((Nat sot, Ready face! )) They stand at attention and after a short prayer, it's time for the honor guards to perform their duties. (00:34:36:16) ((Nat sot, forth arms. right face ready aim fire, ready aim fire,)) (00:35:20:00) ((nat sot, Taps)) Nap marches off chilled to the bone, but he says this is his duty. ((Nap Pietryka/Super Senior, I hope that everything I've done has been decent at least)) His mother named him Napoleon for greatness. She would be proud.

After the hearing Thursday Acting Health Commissioner Tracy Dolan said Italia represented "some risk" because he represented himself as a doctor but was not travelling with a health organization. Some Risk the same level they expect to ascribe to doctors from Fletcher Allen when they eventually return from helping with the crisis overseas. And Health officials say those doctors could even return to direct patient care before their own 21 day symptom observation window closes. (01:11:57:00) ((Patsy Kelso/Vt. State Epidemiologist: we recommend that those folks do not provide direct patient care for eleven days after their last possible exposure)) Dolan says she does not expect to ask doctors to submit to voluntary quarantine, or seek confinement orders ahead of time, as the state did with Peter Italia. When we asked Governor Shumlin about the two individuals being monitored he said he was not familiar with acting commissioner Dolan's testimony. It's unclear why the public was not informed about the monitoring earlier. KM, Ch.3 BTV

Big plans -- in downtown Burlington. The mall -- getting a major makeover. An investment of 200-million dollars from both the city of Burlington and the owners of Burlington Town Center will totally change the look of the mall -- to include a wide range of new amenities. Don Sinex bought the mall in 2013. He says his ideas for the mall align with Mayor Miro Weinberger's plan -- BTV initiative -- with a top goal of spurring economic growing in the city. Sinex estimates his renovations could make the mall worth 450 million dollars per year in economic activity.

(19:05 Joan Shannon/president city council)(("- the mall is currently a grand obstruction to our existing grid. 19:17- cherry and bank streets are locked and imperviousness.")) Sinex hopes the renovations will encourage more activity on Cherry and Bank Streets and open them up to bikers and pedestrians. The renovations will also include a new roof-top park between Macy's and Church Street. Sinex estimates the renovation will include 250 apartment units and could create over 1000 new jobs in the Queen City. As Sinex said, a convention-style hotel with 250 rooms and large showrooms is a possibility as well. The additional parking will likely come In the form of a new underground garage with 950 parking spaces. The towncenter has not undergone a renovation of this size since it opened in 1976. The city and Sinex will present the final plans to the Bulington City Council in December.

And more bad news is on the way. As if the history snow isn't enough -- there's now rain in the forecast.

The 105 pound rodent chased him around the yard, into the garage and -- when he finally made it inside his house -- the animal then tried clawing inside. Earlier that morning it had chased a neighbors sheepdog -- and tried getting into another persons house. The groundhog was eventually caught and put down by animal control. It will be tested for rabies. ((How much wood would a woodworker chuck if a woodchuck would chuck a woodworker.))

Tropical storm Irene -- devastated the state more than 3 years ago --and destroyed the state office complex in Waterbury. This morning, Alexei Rubenstein takes a look at the long road to recovery -- for the complex.

34} COMPLEX6_PKG


From Main Street Waterbury -- it's hard to see the buzz of activity behind the scenes.... ((NATS)) But look past the chain link fence, behind the familiar brick face of the old hospital -- where a modern steel structure is taking shape -- the future home of the state's Agency of Human Services. For over a year -- hundreds of workers have tdemolished buildings and bulldozed the land to transform this 43 acre site. (TC 00:37:26:15 Tile 5061 )((Mike Stevens/Vt Buildings and General Services "it's the largest construction building project the state has ever done")) Mike Stevens, the state's point-person on the $125 million project -- along with architect Jesse Beck -- are our tour guides. From what will soon be a giant horse-shoe parking lot at the rear, workers and visitors will enter the new complex through one main entrance. (TC 00:09:17:22 Tile 5007)((Jesse Beck/Project Architect "This is the main atrium where both of the office buildings come together. People can meet, have coffee; There's going to be food service. The conferencing center is on the second level. We've got Vermont artists that are working on displays. All the materials in this atrium will be Vermont-made materials.)) ((NAT HIT ??? Beck talking about slate, granite etc. On the outside)) Starting with a sprawling complex of more than a dozen buildings Beck says getting back to basics was main plan. (TC 00:09:56:06 Tile 5008) ((Jesse Beck/Project Architect "We approached it with the thought of the Agency of Human Services -- they're about helping people. So the new office building is shaped like helping hands coming together with the atrium in between to make sense out of the architecture. AR: And from a practical point of view what did that mean doing? JB: It meant that we had to carefully remove some of the historic buildings, save the most wonderful historic buildings and preserve those so that the new building would nestle into the historic core.)) ((FILE)) Three years ago -- After Irene's flood waters left much of the Waterbury complex underwater, it wasn't immediately clear if state workers would ever return to Waterbury. (file 1-12-12 )((Gov. Peter Shumlin: My first choice is to unite them in Waterbury (applause) before we make that decision we must ensure we can keep it dry and modernize the workplace affordably 14:19:50)) ((FIle)) But the Governor and lawmakers pushed ahead -- eventually securing $50 Million in FEMA funding and $75 million from state coffers. For a location that's had its share of disasters -- flood mitigation is a top priority in the new design. All structures are now 6 inches above the 500 year flood level. (TC 00:13:01:28 Tile 5008) ((Jesse Beck/Project Architect "Once we studied the flood levels and where the existing buildings sat we knew that it was a very low level of risk to return people back to Waterbury at that above the 500 year flood level. We know the rivers going to flood again, but we know it's going to flood and keep the employees safe where we're building the new buildings.)) The construction is also designed to benefit the Winooski River -- by moving the footprint of the complex away from the rivers edge -- and replanting trees along the banks. ((Series FILE)) The old state hospital was built with a network of interconnected tunnels. All of them led to the power plant near the river -- And one notorious entrance tunnel.... (TC 00:21:21:19 Tile 5029 )((AR STANDUP "When it comes to flooding, this is really the Achilles Heel of the Waterbury complex. Both in 1927 and in Tropical Storm Irene, water came flooding in right here -- into this tunnel -- and spread throughout the entire complex.)) All those flood prone areas have now been filled-in with a specialized lightweight concrete. Starting from that new foundation -- the inside of the historic core is being rebuilt from the ground up. (TC 00:35:41:26 Tile 5061 )((Mike Stevens/Vt Buidlings and General Services "So we're standing inside a 120 Thousand Square foot renovation project.)) (TC 00:35:23:19 Tile 5061) ((Mike Stevens/Vt Buidlings and General Services It takes a lot to reconfigure a space that was built 120 yeasrs ago for one purpose, reconfigure that space so its an efficient use for today's standards and use this )) Stevens says when you include this renovation, the new office building, a new biomass power plant power -- and all the site work -- it's basically four projects in one. ((File)) Since Irene, nearly 1,500 AHS workers have been shoe-horned in to various offices around the state -- including IBM. The new complex will bring about 1,000 of them under one roof. ((INSERT DR. HARRY CHEN**** Hoping to get interview in BTV)) Some critics have said that in the new complex, the state is paying for a cadillac when all it can really afford is a Corolla. Mike Stevens disagrees. (TC 00:42:44:12 Tile 5061 )((Mike Stevens/Vt Buildings and General Services "I think that it's important to recognize that this is an institutional building. We want it here for our people to last for 100 plus years. We want to make that investment once and actually we've ben given an opportunity to make that investment where due to a natural event, we're not required to bare that full cost to renovate this campus)) State and local officials also say its also an investment in Waterbury -- A community that come next December -- will be glad to welcome its state workers back home.
