5} BACKTOSCHOOL8X_VOFO


It's about time to send kids back to school -- and if you're a parent, chances are, you've gotten a note reminding you to make sure your kids are up to date on their vaccinations. Among them -- ones like pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, and hepatitus B. Even while the majority of parents in Vermont choose to vaccinate their children -- there are a lot of shots involved -- and that is where the health department says some kids fall behind.

((SOT Christine Finley, Vermont Health Dept. Immunization Program Manager 010106 I think if you have a sense of what vaccine your child is going to have and you have time to understand why they have it, you feel like you're doing a better job protecting your child 14)) The health department says children's vaccines are provided at no cost to doctors -- and medical fees are covered by insurance. You can contact your child's doctor if you're not sure which ones they have had. Vermont does allow parents to opt out of vacciations for philosopical, religious, or medical reasons.

11} WORLDWATCH_PKG


An American journalist held hostage for two years in Syria by an al-Qaida-linked group is now free. 45-year-old Peter Theo Curtis of Massachusetts was released Sunday...just days after ISIS militants beheaded another captive, American journalist James Foley. President Obama was briefed on Curtis' release and said the U.S. will continue to use all of the tools at its disposal to free American hostages. California's wine country is cleaning up after a 6-point-0 earthquake hit Sunday ...the worst to rattle the San Francisco Bay Area in 25 years. It damaged buildings, knocked out power to thousands, and made a mess of downtown Napa. More than 170 people were hospitalized with injuries...some in critical condition. And, thousands of people are expected at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist church in Saint Louis, Missouri today for the funeral of Michael Brown. Brown was shot and killed over two weeks ago in Ferguson by police officer, Darren Wilson. This incident sparked major protests and some violence in the St. Louis suburb. Brown's parents attended an annual peace festival in St. Louis' Sunday...and pleaded for a "day of silence" as they lay their son to rest. Those are some of the day's top stories. I'm Lauren Lyster for CBS News New York.

12} MEMORIALAM_VO


New Hampshire's Catholic Bishop says journalist James Foley went back into warzones so that 'we might open our eyes.' Foley's execution-style murder last week by ISIS fighters was a grizzly end to two years in captivity. He was kidnapped in 20-12 while covering the Syrian uprising. The 40-year-old grew up in Rochester New Hampshire -- and his parents still live there. The service was held at his hometown church. British intelligence officials say they believe they've identified his killer, using advanced voice recognition.

13} DIGITALESTATEAM_VO


We have wills to determine what happens to our posessions after we die.... Things like homes, cars, personal belongings.... But what about your online identify? Well a new law in one state -- is looking to make sure THAT lives on. The new law in Delaware -- allows you to pass on access to your digital assets. That includes email accounts, social media accounts, health records, and cloud storage. Right now, there are companies -- like Google -- that offer users the option of assigning a beneficairy. But without a signed beneficiary -- gaining access of the deceased can be a long and often unsuccessful process. The govenor says the goal of this, is to quote "Match the reality of how people in the 21st century".

14} POTDRINKAM_W_VO


A company in Washington state -- is looking to cash in on legal marijuana... By drinking it. The owner of Mirth Provisions -- says he has come up with a new way to get the drug into your system -- they are infusing T-H-C into soda and coffee. They are calling the product "Legal" -- and say the goal is to chill consumers out -- not make them totally stoned. The drinks come in flavors like lemon ginger, pomegranate, and cherry -- but the coffee drinks are on hold for now, until the state gives the green light.

15} SUPERMANAM_W_VO


Argueably one of the most expensive comics ever sold -- has raked in 3-point-2 million dollars. The ebay auction closed Sunday night -- on the near-perfect copy of "Action Comics" issue number one. Collectors say the holy grail of comic books is especially rare -- as it marked the very first appearance of Superman back in 1938. They say only about 50 copies remain -- but few are in good condition. The seller claims this copy is the best preserved of it's kind. A similar copy sold for more than 2-million back in 20-11.

17} VACCINESAM_INTRO


If you're a parent sending your children back to school in a couple weeks, chances are -- you've gotten a note from the school asking you to make sure they're up to date on their vaccines. But the Vermont Health Department says while more than 90 percent of kids have had any ONE vaccine -- only 86 percent of them -- have had them ALL. And they want that number to be higher. Here's Julie Kelly.

18} VACCINESAM_PKG


Most schools require students to be current on their vaccinations to help protect everyone on campus. But with the list of requirements -- many needing a series of doses -- it can be challenging for parents to keep up. ((SOT Christine Finley, Vermont Health Dept. Immunization Program Manager 010106 I think if you have a sense of what vaccine your child is going to have and you have time to understand why they have it, you feel like you're doing a better job protecting your child 14)) Vermont does allow parents to opt out of vacciations for philosopical, religious, or medical reasons. And even while the majority of parents choose to vaccinate their children -- there are a lot of shots involved -- and that is where the health department says some kids fall behind. GFX: For example, a child entering kindergarten has to prove they've had: 5 doses of DTaP 4 doses of polio 2 doses of MMR 3 doses of hepatitis B 2 doses of chicken pox -- unless they've already had the disease and developed immunity. GFX: And a child entering seventh grade has to have all of those PLUS: 1 dose of Tdap 1 dose of meningococcal vaccine (MCV4) for residential students -- though that is recommended for all preteens. Also recommended for preteens -- though not required -- are the HPV vaccine and the flu vaccine. Health officials say not having all the shots -- can put students at risk. Finley points to something like measles. There hasn't been an outbreak in Vermont in 20 years -- but just this year, nearby states like Massachusetts and Connecticut reported outbreaks. And Finley says nationwide, the number of cases is around 600 -- greater than anything they've seen in the last 15 to 20 years. ((SOT Finley 010421 It's a highly-contagious disease, very easily transmitted, and so if you have a population that's not fully immunized, there's a way for that disease to get through the barrier and begin to spread 33)) She says it comes down to risk perception. Because of the effectiveness of vaccines in the past, people haven't seen the dangers firsthand and staying up to date -- may not seem urgent. ((SOT Finley 010541 So people that lived through polio or people that experienced measles, they'll have a very different perception of risk. Right now, I think for parents its very hard because you haven't seen the diseases, you haven't seen what they've done 53 so it almost feels like it's sort of a theoretical risk 56)) And Finley says there shouldn't be a cost associated with the vaccines -- because they're provided at no cost to medical providers. Any administrative fees -- she says -- should be covered by insurance. Your child's doctor can tell you which shots they've had. We have a link to more information with this story online.

24} HUNTINGTON11_INTRO


Using pedal power to help a Huntington farm thrive. Alex Apple reports on how one family is keeping a century old piece of history alive.

25} HUNTINGTON11_PKG


In Huntington Vermont -- a town thats population barely passes 2000 people -- it seems like everybody knows everybody. It's a "wave as you pass by" kind of town. In the center of the valley sits Jubilee Farm -- and the historic barn that has sat on the property since 1895. Sarah Jane Williamson runs the farm and she's quite trusting of her customers. (01:34:25 Sarah Jane Williamson/Owner Jubilee Farm)(("They leave my cash right in the honor system cash box. They can write it down or not, they can leave me a note or we also have an IOU box.")) Williamson runs a farmstand out of the old barn -- customers come and take whatever they like -- 3-4 different farms contribute and Williamson wants to expand more. By working with other local farmers, Williamson is turning back the clock on this community -- back to the days when Huntington's whole economy was built on farming. (01:37:29 Sarah Jane Williamson)(("There was an incredibly vibrant agriculture economy going on back then...01:37:14 It really does tie the community together.")) Williamson doesn't ask for much help -- she does most of the work herself, and she doesn't even have a staff. But in order to sell more expensive products, she knows eventually she'll need some assistance. Which is why her friend Patti Delaney decided to lend a hand -- Delaney and her husband are avid bikers. They ride all over Addison County. (Patti Delaney 01:39:38)(("We say to each other, we should do this in Huntington.")) So Delaney gathered up her friends and many of the farm's customers and organized a bike ride to raise money for Williamson to hire a staff and expand the farm. ((NATS riding)) So as these bike wheels hit the pavement, they're helping to keep this 119 year old piece of history alive -- and riders will stop at several businesses along the way -- all are new partner's of the Jubilee farmstand. And the riders will keep alive the Williamson family dream -- it started Sarah Jane's father and lives on in her. (01:38:51 Sarah Jane Williamson)(("He was so excited when I decided to become a farmer...1:38:55 he is really the patron saint of Jubilee farm. He helped me a lot when he was still alive working on the farm, and I wish he could see it now."))

I remember when Keegan was a little ski racer over in Woodstock and I was a ski coach in my earlier days and I used to see Mark and Keegan at ski races and he came to Okemo and played in a junior tournament I think. He made it the hard way. He didn't go on scholarship to a division one school. He went to college and played college golf and went on the mini tours and worked his way up, so I think it's pretty neat."))) --- The UVM women's soccer team hosting Youngstown state in the final game of the TD bank classic yesterday. The Cats rally from an early 2-0 deficit in the first half, 13 minutes in, off the free kick Paige Phillips heads it home.

Four goals in the first half, none in the second half, UVM keeper, Coco Speckmaier making the saves she has too. For the second straight game, we're going to Overtime. But unlike friday's double OT finish, this one ends 2 minutes into the first OT, Nikki Macfarland puts home the lead pass for the game winner.

The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most iconic desserts -- and probably everyone you know has their favorite recipe. But -- do you know what makes the cookies turn out different? As Cat Viglienzoni showed us on "The Weekend" -- it all comes down to some kitchen chemistry.

45} COOKIESCIENCE8_PKG


The chocolate chip cookie...the perfect comfort food....they come come in different shapes, sizes and flavors... So what's behind this culinary classic? Let's dip into the science..stirring up three batches-- thin, puffed and in-between -- ((SOT 000613 Cat: So talk to me a little bit about why a cake flour versus an all-purpose flour would be different for making cookies 19 Jake Lahne, Asst. Professor of Food Science, Drexel University: So cake flour is lower protein than all-purpose flour, and so it tends to absorb less water. 26 And so more water is available to turn into steam in the oven and that gives the cookie a lift 32 so you're going to end up with puffier cookies 34 And if you make it with all-purpose flour or bread flour, they're going to spread out more because there isn't that puff 41)) And if you're like me and you've always wondered what the difference is between baking soda and baking powder -- food scientist Jake Lahne has the answer. He says baking soda is a base -- and needs to react with an added acid to generate the gasses that cause cookies to rise. ((SOT Lahne 000825 there isn't much that's acidic in cookies in the first place, so if you add just plain baking soda you're not going to get much carbon dioxide generated, so you're not going to get much lift with baking soda 34)) Baking powder, on the other hand, has both the acid and the base in it -- meaning it only needs a liquid to react and thus creates puffier cookies. But the two aren't directly interchangeable -- too much baking soda can cause a soapy flavor. ((SOT 000907 Lahne You can't just sub them in. You'll want to adjust the recipe a little bit 11)) Next -- the sugars. Lahne tells me regular granulated sugar doesn't brown as fast because of its chemical makeup. It also makes for harder cookies. ((SOT Lahne 0001057 When there's not a lot of moisture in a recipe, like in cookies, it tends to recrystalize when it cools down 02 And so it gives a snappy texture to the cookies 05)) Brown sugar, on the other hand, has molasses and more complex sugars. ((SOT Lahne 001120 Not only does it add a bit of flavor from all those slightly more complex ingredients -- that nice kind of brown sugar flavor, but it tends to soften as it cools because it picks up water from the environment 31 and so will make a less snappy cookie 34)) Plain corn syrup often gets a bad rap -- but in cookies, it can be used to change texture and color. ((SOT Lahne 001256 I know I myself like using the fewest number of ingredients possible but if you do a mix, even just a little bit of corn syrup added to a cookie made with mostly white sugar will produce both browning results and a little bit more chewiness. 09)) ((BUTTED)) ((SOT001311 Cat: We're getting to our liquid stage and 12 I notice the thin batch actually had me use milk instead of eggs. Talk about why that kind-of flattens out your cookie. 19 Lahne: So eggs provide both liquid and protein. And egg proteins set at a reasonably low temperature. And so when you add eggs to a cookie, before it can spread fully and make a thin cookie like this, those proteins are going to set up and help it stay both more compact and also more risen 39 Milk on the other hand -- the proteins in milk don't act in the same way 43)) ((BUTTED)) ((SOT 001426 Cat: Last we have our butter versus shortening, and if you're someone like me, using shortening is kind-of like "why would you do that?" But you said it does affect the texture of the cookies? 35 Lahne: Yeah, it does 36)) The reason it does, he says, is because of the different fat contents. Shortening is nearly 100 percent fat -- whereas butter is about 81 to 86 percent fat and has some water. That extra water causes more of a spread in the cookie. Butter also has a lower melting point -- so it spreads out in the oven faster than shortening does. ((SOT 001539 Cat: And a way to get around that and still use butter you said would be to chill the dough or freeze the dough. 43 Lahne: Oh yeah. Exactly. That's an easy way to do it and also makes it easier to form 47 Again, that's just about manipulating the melting point because the cookie itself is going to absorb more heat before the butter gets to the melting point 59)) Learning the science of baking -- to create your perfect cookie.

Voter turnout is expected to be low for this week's primary. Mainly because this is not a presidential election year and it's an off year for U-S Senate campaigns. So far, a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for the U.S. House and a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for governor have been relatively quiet. Secretary of State Jim Condos says turnout is driven mostly by competitive statewide races. Polls open Tuesday morning.

The American Heart Association has issued new e-cigarette recommendations. Alison Harmelin has the day's top health stories. (pkg) The American Heart Association is calling for tougher restrictions on sales and marketing of e-cigarettes to young people. The association says that since electronic cigarettes contain nicotine, they should be subject to all laws that apply to cigarettes and cigars. Recent studies show e-cigarettes can lead the way to using regular cigarettes for young users. New research suggests anti-depressants could one day help treat brain cancer in children. In studies with mice, researchers at Cincinnati's Children Hospital found the drug Rolipram shrank tumors. Scientists say more research is needed before clinical trials can begin. And a recent study found Medicaid reimbursements can affect cancer screening rates. In states with higher Medicaid payments for office visits, people were more likely to be screened for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. That's a look at some of the day's top health stories.

Immunization Program Manager 010106 I think if you have a sense of what vaccine your child is going to have and you have time to understand why they have it, you feel like you're doing a better job protecting your child 14)) The health department says children's vaccines are provided at no cost to doctors -- and medical fees are covered by insurance. You can contact your child's doctor if you're not sure which ones they have had. Vermont does allow parents to opt out of vacciations for philosopical, religious, or medical reasons.

35} COOKIESCIENCE8_INTRO


The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most iconic desserts -- and probably everyone you know has their favorite recipe. But -- do you know what makes the cookies turn out different? As Cat Viglienzoni showed us on "The Weekend" -- it all comes down to some kitchen chemistry.

36} COOKIESCIENCE8_PKG


The chocolate chip cookie...the perfect comfort food....they come come in different shapes, sizes and flavors... So what's behind this culinary classic? Let's dip into the science..stirring up three batches-- thin, puffed and in-between -- ((SOT 000613 Cat: So talk to me a little bit about why a cake flour versus an all-purpose flour would be different for making cookies 19 Jake Lahne, Asst. Professor of Food Science, Drexel University: So cake flour is lower protein than all-purpose flour, and so it tends to absorb less water. 26 And so more water is available to turn into steam in the oven and that gives the cookie a lift 32 so you're going to end up with puffier cookies 34 And if you make it with all-purpose flour or bread flour, they're going to spread out more because there isn't that puff 41)) And if you're like me and you've always wondered what the difference is between baking soda and baking powder -- food scientist Jake Lahne has the answer. He says baking soda is a base -- and needs to react with an added acid to generate the gasses that cause cookies to rise. ((SOT Lahne 000825 there isn't much that's acidic in cookies in the first place, so if you add just plain baking soda you're not going to get much carbon dioxide generated, so you're not going to get much lift with baking soda 34)) Baking powder, on the other hand, has both the acid and the base in it -- meaning it only needs a liquid to react and thus creates puffier cookies. But the two aren't directly interchangeable -- too much baking soda can cause a soapy flavor. ((SOT 000907 Lahne You can't just sub them in. You'll want to adjust the recipe a little bit 11)) Next -- the sugars. Lahne tells me regular granulated sugar doesn't brown as fast because of its chemical makeup. It also makes for harder cookies. ((SOT Lahne 0001057 When there's not a lot of moisture in a recipe, like in cookies, it tends to recrystalize when it cools down 02 And so it gives a snappy texture to the cookies 05)) Brown sugar, on the other hand, has molasses and more complex sugars. ((SOT Lahne 001120 Not only does it add a bit of flavor from all those slightly more complex ingredients -- that nice kind of brown sugar flavor, but it tends to soften as it cools because it picks up water from the environment 31 and so will make a less snappy cookie 34)) Plain corn syrup often gets a bad rap -- but in cookies, it can be used to change texture and color. ((SOT Lahne 001256 I know I myself like using the fewest number of ingredients possible but if you do a mix, even just a little bit of corn syrup added to a cookie made with mostly white sugar will produce both browning results and a little bit more chewiness. 09)) ((BUTTED)) ((SOT001311 Cat: We're getting to our liquid stage and 12 I notice the thin batch actually had me use milk instead of eggs. Talk about why that kind-of flattens out your cookie. 19 Lahne: So eggs provide both liquid and protein. And egg proteins set at a reasonably low temperature. And so when you add eggs to a cookie, before it can spread fully and make a thin cookie like this, those proteins are going to set up and help it stay both more compact and also more risen 39 Milk on the other hand -- the proteins in milk don't act in the same way 43)) ((BUTTED)) ((SOT 001426 Cat: Last we have our butter versus shortening, and if you're someone like me, using shortening is kind-of like "why would you do that?" But you said it does affect the texture of the cookies? 35 Lahne: Yeah, it does 36)) The reason it does, he says, is because of the different fat contents. Shortening is nearly 100 percent fat -- whereas butter is about 81 to 86 percent fat and has some water. That extra water causes more of a spread in the cookie. Butter also has a lower melting point -- so it spreads out in the oven faster than shortening does. ((SOT 001539 Cat: And a way to get around that and still use butter you said would be to chill the dough or freeze the dough. 43 Lahne: Oh yeah. Exactly. That's an easy way to do it and also makes it easier to form 47 Again, that's just about manipulating the melting point because the cookie itself is going to absorb more heat before the butter gets to the melting point 59)) Learning the science of baking -- to create your perfect cookie.

(((A big day in Woodstock. Keegan Bradley is set to host his third annual charity golf classic at the Woodstock Country Club. I will be there of course and you can see my reports later today on the channel 3 news. Bradley finished at one under par yesterday at the Barclays tournament.Today, Bradley will once again be joined by PGA Tour buddy, Brendan Steele. For the second straight year, the two will be raising money to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. That foundation supports the Vermont cancer center and Vermont's Children's hospital. It's almost hard to believe that this is Bradley's fourth year on tour. Former PGA president and Okemo Valley golf club vice president and general manager, Jim Remy, has fond memories of a young Keegan Bradley. --- (((Jim Remy/"We're so proud of Keegan. I remember when Keegan was a little ski racer over in Woodstock and I was a ski coach in my earlier days and I used to see Mark and Keegan at ski races and he came to Okemo and played in a junior tournament I think. He made it the hard way. He didn't go on scholarship to a division one school. He went to college and played college golf and went on the mini tours and worked his way up, so I think it's pretty neat."))) --- The UVM women's soccer team hosting Youngstown state in the final game of the TD bank classic yesterday. The Cats rally from an early 2-0 deficit in the first half, 13 minutes in, off the free kick Paige Phillips heads it home. It's 2-1. in the 36th minute, Vermont Freshman Sarah Martin, who had the game winner Friday, fires this rocket and it's 2-2 at the break. Four goals in the first half, none in the second half, UVM keeper, Coco Speckmaier making the saves she has too. For the second straight game, we're going to Overtime. But unlike friday's double OT finish, this one ends 2 minutes into the first OT, Nikki Macfarland puts home the lead pass for the game winner. UVM goes on to the 3-2 overtime win, sweeping the TD Bank classic title. --- that's it for now. See you in Woodstock, Scott Fleishman, channel 3 sports, have a great day.)))
