The Livable Communities Award, cosponsored by AARP and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), honors builders, developers and remodelers that create attractive, well-designed homes and communities, which are safe, comfortable and accessible for people of all ages and abilities. This year, HallKeen, The Braverman Company and New Boston Fund is one of four winners nationally.”The boomers approaching retirement age have changed every institution they have encountered so far, from schools, to the workplace, to the suburbs,” said AARP Director of Livable Communities Elinor Ginzler. “Now city planners, developers and homebuilders are anticipating their next impact. This is happening at the same time the cost of gas and traffic congestion are providing incentives to reduce the need to drive. As a result, you see communities reinventing their downtowns to be more user-friendly as this year’s winner, Winooski, VT, did. You see suburbs building town centers to provide entertainment, goods and services closer to home. And you see builders looking to make their homes more user-friendly for a generation accustomed to amenities and comfort.”AARP Vermont teamed up with the City of Burlington and some 30 area organizations to launch the Burlington Livable Community Project three years ago. The group has worked to engage the community — stakeholder organizations and residents — in defining a vision and specific action steps to make Burlington more livable for an aging population. It focuses on three issue areas: housing, mobility, and community engagement and enthusiastically supports the national recognition being received by this project which fully embodies their agenda.HallKeen, The Braverman Company and New Boston Fund won the 2008 Livable Communities Award in the category of “Developer over 250 units”. The development provides residents with a real sense of small-town community and a strong identity with proximity to a riverfront walkway and many public transportation options, downtown Burlington, countless shops, restaurants, two college/university campuses and the largest hospital in the state. The community of Winooski prides itself on “smart growth” – building community while protecting the environment – offering energy-efficient, universally-designed and affordable units.The developer Ken Braverman Principal, HKW/LLC, stressed the positive impact projects like this can have on a community. “By putting smart growth principles into action, the Winooski Falls project demonstrates that developing livable communities for people of all ages is an excellent way to restore and revive our city centers. My partners and I thank AARP/ NAHB for this honor, and look forward to continuing to build on our success in Vermont’s downtown neighborhood for many years to come.”Governor Jim Douglas was pleased that the project received national recognition.”Winooski Falls demonstrates the economic and cultural value of public and private partners establishing and promoting smart revitalization in a historic downtown. I am pleased that my Administration could play a role in creating a new neighborhood offering full access to employment, recreation, dining, and shopping in a mixed-income, multi-generational residential and commercial setting unlike any other in Vermont. On behalf of the people of Vermont, I applaud HallKeen, The Braverman Company, and New Boston Fund for creating a community at Winooski Falls that benefits individuals and families of all ages.”As there will be 70 million people over 65 by 2030, AARP is releasing a national poll showing that at least a quarter of baby boomers expect to move again and they will be looking for something comfortable. Half or more of those boomers will look for a home that’s all on one level. A similar number (50%) will look for a newer home. This project is a great example of the kind of residential community that will serve them best. It’s new, convenient, aesthetically appealing and inviting to everyone.Winners will be honored at a dinner in Washington, DC on December 10, 2008 and will also be featured in AARP The Magazine, the nation’s most widely circulated magazine.

He is still around the teamsomewhat, and was introduced Saturday along with his classmates during theteam’s pregame Senior Day festivities.The younger brother of former Indiana quarterback andcurrent Washington Redskins wide receiver Antwaan Randle El, Marcus Randle Elwas hampered by injuries during his time with the Badgers. He caught fourpasses for 45 yards and a touchdown over parts of three seasons.”Marcus, obviously because of his name and what he brings tothe table, came in with a lot of expectations and played as a freshman and thenwas injured,” Bielema said. “It’s just been something. Personally for him, it’sbeen a hard, hard struggle, and we’re trying to help him through it as much aswe can.”Axe gameSaturday’s game will mark the 117th time Wisconsin andMinnesota have faced off against one another on the football field, making the BoarderBattle the most played rivalry in NCAA Division I college football.While Bielema has only been a part of the rivalry for Paul Bunyan’s Axe thepast three seasons, he has already embraced the history that goes along withsuch a storied, lengthy series.”One of the great things that coach Alvarez taught me washow much he emphasized the history of the Axe and how we use it in recruitingto display it,” Bielema said, continuing on to say he is educating his playersall week on the history of the rivalry, going as far back as the early 1900s.In a series marked by occasional wild games and finishes,Bielema knows he and his staff have their work cut out for them to avoid ashocking loss at the hands of the woeful Gophers (1-10, 0-7 Big Ten).”What I pointed out to our players is this: You’re going tohave a group of seniors that are going into their last home game like ourseniors just did this past Saturday,” Bielema said.”And to go through the season they had this year and played very competitive inall the ballgames … it just hasn’t turned out the way they wanted in the end.And I’m sure we’re going to get their best effort of the year.”Injury reportDespite not practicing at all last week, running back P.J.Hill was able to play sparingly Saturday against Michigan, running five timesfor 14 yards.         While the team hasn’t practiced yet this week, Bielema saidhe expected his sophomore tailback to practice Tuesday and be available for theupcoming game.As for quarterback Tyler Donovan, who left the Senior Daywin in the fourth quarter after banging his hand on a helmet on the follow-throughof a throw, Bielema was cautiously optimistic.”We expect him to be involved in some capacity on Tuesday and just see how heprogresses throughout the course of the week,” Bielema said.Shaughnessy honoredDefensive end Matt Shaughnessy was honored by the Big Tenthis week as the conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week, sharing the honorwith Penn State linebacker Dan Connor.Shaughnessy led the Wisconsin defense Saturday with seventackles, including 1.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for a loss.Linebacker DeAndre Levy was the last Wisconsin player toearn Defensive Player of the Week honors.
