Travel Tips To Leaf Peeping Travel by Car in Vermont, New England

Autumn Season Driving To Vermont From Illinois in the Midwest, USA

Twenty years ago, on September 3, 1993, my Father Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. purchased a Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow and Nathan S. Wittler and I moved to the Village of Lombard in DuPage County during September, he wanted to drive out east to Vermont, the Green Mountain state in New England in the new sandstone sportscar Nissan 200SX which featured an auto-pilot self-driving steering wheel to handle the miles on the US highways. Nathan S. Wittler wanted to visit his parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) at the West Dummerston Farm by the West River near Brattleboro, Vermont in New England. The Wittlers planned the annual Wittler-Patriquin Family reunion with Grandfather Patriquin’s clan for a family wedding involving Kent Wittler and Linda Goetz. The fourth time, Nate’s youngest brother Kent Wittler became engaged to Linda Goetz from Cooperstown, New York and decided to get married in South Vermont, New England.

The Autumn season driving to Vermont from Illinois in the Midwest was going to be the fourth leaf-pipping tour time for me to enjoy the colorful display of Fall leaves around West Dummerston and Brattleboro by the West River in New England. Fall in Vermont is one of the best times to get away on a long car drive to travel in the Green Mountain state. After the wedding, Nathan and I planned to drive north through Vermont and cross the Canadian border around Lake Champlain into the province of Québec to visit Montréal and drive on the Canadian highway Route 401 to Ontario towards Saute St. Marie and Detroit Michigan for the scenic tour around the Great Lakes back to Illinois in the Midwest.

Previously, Nathan S. Wittler and I had travelled to South Vermont after getting married ourselves aboard the Star of Chicago at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan in the Illinois, USA.

Nate and I attended the family wedding reunion for his youngest sister Heather Wittler and Jon Eruren at the Vermont farm in New England. We drove east from the Land of Lincoln through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, and New York all the way to West Dummerston by the West River near Brattleboro in South Vermont, New England.

Afterwards, Nathan’s second brother Bryan Wittler got married to Peggy Cano and moved to Newfane near West Dummerston in South Vermont. The second time travelling to New England, Nathan and I decided to fly to Boston, Massachusetts to pick up his youngest brother Kent Wittler who was studying at Harvard University. So, Nate and I flew into Logan Airport in Boston, then rented a National car to drive out to South Vermont after we picked up Kent Wittler by Harvard University in Boston. I was driving out the National rental car while Nate and Kent were talking and trying to catch up on the family and friends events. The three of us, me, Nate and Kent drove out on U.S. Highway 1 from Boston, Massachusetts to West Dummerston and Brattleboro, New England to meet the Wittlers and the Patriquins at the farm by the West River in South Vermont. We drove safely through the Boston city traffic and the New England commuters travelling to South Vermont in New England for the Autumn family wedding reunion. Since I was driving carefully, there were no traffic tickets nor moving violations during our Autumn season driving through New England and the East coast on our way to West Dummerston and Brattleboro in South Vermont.

Pre-planning, fuel budgeting, and AAA Motor Club member deals can make a great Fall Leaf Peeping driving across the Midwest from Illinois through Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, South Vermont and northbound across the Green Mountain state towards Stowe, Burlington, Montpelier and around Lake Champlain into the Canadian border and the province of Québec en route to Montréal and across Ontario following the Canadian Highway 401 into Saute St. Marie, Windsor, and Detroit, through the scenic Lake Michigan tour-de-lac back to the Land of Lincoln.

In the year 2013, the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week takes place from Sunday, April 21st through Saturday, April 27th, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crimes in order to inspire our communities to observe the Victims of Crimes Act of 1984 (VOCA).

The Victims of Crime Act of 1984 (VOCA) was an attempt by the federal government to help the victims of criminal actions through means other than punishment of the criminal. It created a federal victims-compensation account funded by fines assessed in federal criminal convictions, and it established provisions to assist state programs that compensated the victims of crimes. The compensation system is still in existence, having distributed over $1 billion in funds since it began.

The statute, codified at 42 U.S.C.A. § 10601, was a direct result of a task force set up by the Justice Department under the auspices of President Ronald Reagan called the President’s Task Force on Victims of Crime, the report issued by the task force in 1982 was harshly critical of existing victims-compensation programs. “In many states, program availability is not advertised for fear of depleting available resources or overtaxing a numerically inadequate staff. Victim claims might have to wait months until sufficient fines have been collected or until a new fiscal year begins and the budgetary fund is replenished,” according to the report.

VOCA established the Crime Victim’s Fund, which is supported by all fines that are collected from persons who have been convicted of offenses against the United States, except for fines that are collected through certain environmental statutes and other fines that are specifically designated for certain accounts, such as the Postal Service Fund. The fund also includes special assessments collected for various federal crimes under 18 USC § 3613, the proceeds of forfeited appearance bonds, bail bonds, and collateral collected, any money ordered to be paid into the fund under section 3671(c)(2) of Title 18; and any gifts, bequests, or donations to the fund from private entities or individuals.

The first $10 million from the fund, plus an added amount depending on how much has been deposited in the fund for that fiscal year, goes to child-abuse prevention and treatment programs. After that, such sums as may be necessary are made available for the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to improve services for the benefit of crime victims in the federal criminal justice system, and for a Victim Notification System.

The Office for Victims of Crimes has chosen this year’s theme to be: “New Challenges. New Solutions.” The mission of the OVC’s strategic initiative is called Vision 21: Transforming Victims Services in the 21st century for the new millennium.

According to Joye E. Frost, the Acting Director for the Office for Victims of Crimes, “in spite of all our progress, victims’ rights laws in all 50 states, the Victims of Crime Act of 1984, the Violence Against Women Act of 1994, and the more than 10,000 victim service agencies throughout the United States of America–there are still enduring and emerging challenges for victims of crimes in America.”

About 50 percent of violent crimes are not reported, and only a fraction of victims receive the help they need. There are still ongoing investigations to know and find out more about these victims, how to help them in the best way, and how the victims’ services can be targeted to reach every victim. While adapting to funding cuts, globalization, changing demographics, new types of violent crimes, and the changes (both good and bad) brought by technology. These 21st century new challenges call for bold, new solutions.

The promise and commitment of our Vision 21, will pave the way to the ongoing work with victims during the 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, in order to transform victims’ services in the 21st century–Office for Victims of Crime, Joye E. Frost, Acting Director
