Governor Jim Douglas today announced that Deputy Chief of Staff Heidi Tringe will be stepping down at the end of the month to pursue a new opportunity in the private sector. On August 1, she will join the government relations firm of MacLean, Meehan and Rice LLC.“Heidi has been a critical member of my team and a key advisor during these challenging economic times,” said Governor Douglas. “Her expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to Vermont will be greatly missed, and I wish her all the best in her next endeavor.”Tringe joined the Governor’s senior staff in January 2008 as Special Assistant, following 2 years as Legislative Affairs and Communications Director at the Agency of Human Services. She was appointed Secretary of Civil and Military Affairs in 2009 and assumed her current position in January, 2010. “As chair of the National Governors Association (NGA), Heidi has been invaluable to me in helping navigate the many complex issues facing states in Washington and in state capitals,” the Governor remarked. “Federal health care reform is having a major impact on states and Heidi’s ability to quickly understand and relate decisions made in Washington to the realities here in Vermont has been critical.” In addition to her work with the NGA, Heidi served as co-chair of the Governor’s Health Care Cabinet and has been liaison with numerous state agencies and other organizations.

By Dialogo January 01, 2010 Eight of the 32 teams participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup come from the Americas, which is home to some of the best players in the world, such as Brazil’s Kaká, Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Uruguay’s Diego Forlán. The International Federation of Association Football event, dating back to 1930, is played every four years. Five-time champion Brazil (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002), the only country to participate in all 18 World Cups, is one of the favorites to win the title yet again. Southern Cone countries will also be participating: twotime champions Argentina (1978, 1986), which had a difficult time qualifying despite being coached by all-time great Diego Maradona, and Uruguay (1930, 1950), which won a homeand- away playoff against Costa Rica, qualified along with Chile and Paraguay.
