I remember the day a long time ago, early winter 2005, when my friend and neighbor Dean Pineles retired as a Vermont trial judge. After a long career on the bench, Dean called to say he’d stepped down and was on his way to buy a ski pass.

Most of us when we retire from a job well done would maybe tend a garden, adopt a sport, volunteer for this or that. And, in fact, for a while Dean did just that: EMT with Stowe Rescue, Stowe Development Review Board, Copley Hospital Board. Dean’s wife, Kristina Stahlbrand, after a wonderful career with the South Burlington School System, seemed as well to be settling into enjoying life in our fair town. But retirement has not gone the typical route for Dean and Kristina.
