ake way for your neighbors that neigh. That’s the message state officials and the Vermont Horse Council have for motorists in a new public service announcement. The 30-second video stars Public Safety Commissioner Thomas Anderson and Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts, who wore neon safety vests and led horses as they asked viewers to give the animals a wide berth on the road. “Don’t honk your horn, don’t rev your

safety: Stone encouraged them to respect drivers by riding single file and using hand signals. Creating the video was not a spurof-the-moment decision. Stone said the council teamed up with the state after Tebbetts approached her in January at a horse show. Tebbetts then recruited the agency’s policy and communications director, Scott Waterman, to write and produce the short flick. Waterman kept it low-budget: It took him three weeks to create and cost only his time. Look for the clip on local television or visit SARA TABIN



engine, don’t swerve toward a horse and rider,” Anderson said. Carmel Stone, a safety leader for the Vermont Horse Council, said her group has heard concerns from members who have had bad interactions with motorists. Many drivers do not know to slow down and give the animals room, according to Stone. “You never know what a horse is going to do,” she said. “Even welltrained horses are going to react. We want to help educate people when they do encounter horses on the road.” According to the Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets, more than 75,000 horses call Vermont home.

Speaking for the UVM Medical Center, Eileen Whalen, the president and chief operating officer, said the hospital’s pay is competitive. It conducts a market analysis that takes into account salaries of similar organizations, the cost of living and benefits such as tuition. The hospital is picking up the tab for 90 registered nurses who are pursuing bachelor’s degrees in nursing. “The average base pay for the vast majority of our nurses is about $64,000, and I would challenge that that definitely meets market rates,” said Whalen. Judging by events last Friday, the two sides were not close to an agreement. In the morning, the union announced it had filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, including allegations that the hospital had made unilateral changes to staffing grids and had ordered employees to remove union buttons. Later that day, hundreds of union members packed Davis Auditorium to learn that no deal had been struck. Read Tabin’s full post, and keep up with developments, at

That’s how much Colorado-based Vail Resorts says it plans to pay for Triple Peaks, the parent company of Okemo Mountain Resort.


niversity of Vermont Medical Center nurses who are trying to negotiate a new labor contract ratcheted up the pressure last Friday with a news conference and rally. The nurses’ current contract expires on July 9. The Vermont Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals, which represents about 1,800 nurses, has been negotiating a new contract with the hospital. Julie MacMillan, the lead negotiator for the union, said that in past negotiation cycles, when the hospital was not doing as well financially, nurses accepted cost-of-living adjustments. But now, since the hospital’s revenue is up, the nurses have had enough, MacMillan told Seven Days’ Sara Tabin. They have also been inspired by the success of other unions across the country, she said. The nurses complain that the hospital doesn’t pay enough, considering the cost of living in Vermont — and that their pay lags behind salaries in comparable institutions. The wages leave some positions unfilled, which leads to extra work for nurses and affects patient care, she said.

[Re “Committed,” April 25]: I was disappointed by your willingness to accept the prevailing orthodoxy that forced hospitalization and medications are a panacea for people with psychiatric diagnoses. The scientific research reported in Robert Whitaker’s book Anatomy of an Epidemic clearly demonstrates that popular notions about the nature of mental illness and the necessity and efficacy of psychiatric medications are not supported by the evidence. We should all question whether the power placed in the hands of the psychiatric establishment has done more harm than good. What the article does well, however, is demonstrate how inadequate and underfunded the community supports in our mental health system are. It is unconscionable that our society should expect an untrained family member like the father in your story, no matter how well intentioned, to bear the sole burden of providing care and supervision for his severely disabled son in the midst of a psychiatric crisis. One symptom of Vermont’s mental health crisis is the unprecedented numbers of people detained in emergency departments without treatment or even access to such basic necessities as social interaction and access to the outdoors. The cause of this crisis is not delays in involuntary medications. No, it is the failure of the mental health system to address problems before they reach a crisis stage, to avoid hospital admission by getting people help where they live, and to provide readily available housing and supports when they are ready to leave the hospital that causes backlogs in psychiatric hospitals and emergency departments. Your article clearly illustrates the sad consequences of the inadequacy of our community system. John J. McCullough III

[Re Off Message: “Walters: Holcombe Calls a Halt to Gubernatorial Speculation,” May 28]: If Rebecca Holcombe’s nascent candidacy was “more than just a rumor,” as you claim by publishing a competitor’s failed prediction, then what was it? What, exactly, is “more than just a rumor”? Apparently, Seven Days considers “more than just a rumor” published by a competing news outlet as plenty of grounds for an entire story of a noncandidacy based on that competitor’s unconfirmed speculation. If “more than just a rumor” suggests PILATES I BARRE I FITNESS that this ex-education secretary actually was plotting to seek public office, then to 208 Flynn Ave, Burlington let her off with a rehearsed statement and not subject her to questions is journalistic malpractice. At the very least, you needed a line such 8h-corestudio060618-bw.indd 1 6/4/18 12:11 PM as this: “Holcombe refused to respond to questions beyond a prepared statement.” Some of those questions would be: “To what degree did you consider running for the Democratic nomination? Or were you considering a third party? Or neither? “Why were you testing the waters, if you were? If you did, how did you try to gauge whether you had any public or financial support, or both? Were you serious, or was this a self-aggrandizing exercise? “If you seriously considered running, what would have persuaded you to do it — concluding you actually had a chance?”

I’m sitting down at the hacked-up tree body that was made into my desk to write that with Barbara Zucker’s letter [Feedback: “Trees Are Telling,” May 23], the mass hysteria over Burlington’s trees has gone over the top. A tree cannot be felled brutally (or gently, for that matter) because a tree is not a conscious being. That’s lucky for us, since we all live on land that was deforested to make our wooden houses filled with wooden furniture, books and papers, powered by our wood-burning electric plant. As a tree lover and recent master’s graduate of the University of Vermont’s Field Naturalist program who has been involved in conservation work for years, I’m sure I would be crushed by the state of the Burlington College property if I had spent a lot of time there. However, our city has a housing problem, as well as many beautiful, protected natural areas. The alternative to concentrating development in an urban center is to spread it out over the surrounding land, which is far more disastrous for wildlife. (I don’t hear anyone extolling sprawl, either.) We’re lucky to live in a city that values sustainability and green space as much as it does. We are far ahead of many other cities in the country in that respect. Just because our city officials allow some trees to be cut down (sometimes for the health of the remaining trees, as in City Hall

Burlington. When a nonresident accepts such a position, the charter provides the substantial period of one full year to become a Burlington resident.   In the event that a year is not enough, the charter generously provides for a limited extension of the yearlong period at the discretion of the city council. The language describing the circumstances and the scope of such an extension reads as follows: “In case of personal hardship found and declared to exist by the City Council with Mayor presiding, the time limit for an individual to become a legal voter of the City may be extended for a set period of time beyond one year.” The charter is very clear that an extension for hardship must be for a “set period of time.” It bluntly suggests that any extension would be for less than a full year. Clearly the charter does not contemplate never ever coming into compliance with this charter provision as even a remote possibility.  In its recent vote regarding the superintendent of schools and in other instances related to the charter’s residency requirement, the city council has behaved as if it were above the law. This is not the case unless the council and the people of Burlington choose to abandon the rule of law and pledge allegiance instead to whatever the city council determines to be permissible at the moment.

Gubernatorial Moneyball

onventional wisdom has it that the 2018 gubernatorial campaign will be a sleepy affair. Republican Gov. PHIL SCOTT is personally popular and has history on his side. It’s been 56 years since Vermonters rejected a firstterm incumbent governor. But potentially uncompetitive doesn’t necessarily mean low-budget. In 2016, Scott and Democratic nominee SUE MINTER spent a combined $3.6 million. But even more was spent by outside groups. A Stronger Vermont, a political action committee run by the Republican Governors Association, dropped more than $3 million on behalf of Scott. And the organization is already making waves this year; it’s produced 11 Facebook ads promoting Scott during his standoff with the Democratic legislature. The Democratic Governors Association’s counterpart PAC, Our Vermont, spent $1.3 million on behalf of Minter in 2016. (Needless to say, despite their Green Mountain branding, both PACs are based in Washington, D.C.) Too soon to tell if those organizations 10:38 AMwill go all in this year. But by national standards, Vermont is a bargain. The Cook Political Report estimates that campaign spending nationwide will easily top $3 billion. So what’s a few lousy million? For the D.C. moneybags, it’s pocket change. Whatever the party orgs do, there’s likely to be a flood of outside money on behalf of Democratic candidate CHRISTINE HALLQUIST. She’s already attracted the active support of the Victory Fund, a national political action committee for LGBTQ candidates. Hallquist would be the first openly transgender governor in America, and that makes her a top priority for the group. “She received our Game Changer endorsement instead of our general endorsement because of her history-making campaign,” said ELLIOT IMSE, spokesperson for the Victory Fund. “We have a good number of donors who are willing to max out for candidates who can advance the cause of equality.” Imse believes Hallquist can be a tough match for Scott. “2018 is turning out to be a change year,” he said. “Christine is well positioned to win the primary and to illustrate a contrast between herself and the incumbent.” Hallquist could also receive the backing of EMILY’s List, a national PAC for Democratic women candidates. “We are looking at the race,” spokesperson JULIE

wrote in an email. No commitments yet, but the PAC did endorse Minter two years ago. Hallquist, former CEO of the Vermont Electric Cooperative, has a chock-full Rolodex of her own due to her work on energy issues. Her campaign’s fundraising target is $2 million. Between that and the outside help, she stands a very good chance of being financially competitive with Scott. That’s assuming she survives the



FOR THE D.C. MONEYBAGS, IT’S POCKET CHANGE. Democratic primary. If one of the other Dems — JAMES EHLERS, BRENDA SIEGEL or ETHAN SONNEBORN — wins the nomination, it’ll be young David’s coin purse against Goliath’s giant bags of loot. Of course, as any of those three would tell you, David won.

After the Deadline

So far, 2018 has been a good year for female candidates, thanks to the #MeToo movement and liberal backlash against President DONALD TRUMP. But as of last week’s filing deadline for Vermont’s August primaries, the number of female legislative candidates was down slightly from 2016 — despite the efforts of Emerge Vermont, a nonprofit that trains Democratic women to run for office. Emerge can boast 15 alumnae running for the House and another five for the Senate. So why are the numbers flat? It’s the Republicans. Forty-six percent of all Democratic House candidates are women, as are 36 percent of its Senate hopefuls. But women make up only 21 percent of the VTGOP’s legislative slate. And all of them are running for the House. There’s not a single woman running for the Senate as a Republican. The party’s two incumbent female senators, PEG FLORY (R-Rutland) and CAROLYN BRANAGAN (R-Franklin), are not seeking reelection. “I think it would be wonderful if the Republican Party prioritized gender parity,” said RUTH HARDY, Emerge’s executive

director. “I wish the Republicans had an Emerge counterpart.” Hardy herself is running for a Senate seat representing Addison County, which is prompting her to step away from Emerge. The group will name an interim chief by mid-June. Meanwhile, gun-rights advocates had talked of a political counteroffensive after Scott signed a series of gun bills this year. But they aren’t showing their cards just yet. “We’ll be announcing [our candidates] after we compile the whole list,” said ED CUTLER of Gun Owners of Vermont. “We’re not jumpin’ the gun; we’ve got ’til August.” He said his group has recruited half a dozen Senate candidates and roughly 20 for the House but refused to name names; he wants to give other pro-gun hopefuls a fair chance at getting the group’s support through its normal endorsement process. “We’re trying to make a crucial difference,” Cutler said. That includes, he added, running gun-rights candidates as Democrats in liberal districts. Tricky! Overall, the legislative outlook remains dim for Republicans. Democrats are virtually certain to preserve their veto-proof majority in the Senate. The VTGOP hopes to score modest gains for its current 53member House caucus and, at worst, preserve its ability to uphold a gubernatorial veto — which requires at least 51 seats. But Republicans still have work to do. The party had fielded a mere 76 House candidates as of Tuesday. There are some conspicuous gaps in their list; they have no candidates in the two-seat district of Vergennes or in any of South Burlington’s four districts. They have no candidates at all in Windham County for House or Senate; they have a mere two hopefuls in all of Bennington County, both incumbents. Republicans will have a chance to fill empty slots after the August primary through district caucuses. “We are actively pursuing that in targeted districts,” said VTGOP executive director JACK MOULTON. Part of the effort will involve urging some retiring incumbents to reconsider, including WARREN VAN WYCK (R-Ferrisburgh) and DENNIS DEVEREUX (R-Belmont). The Democrats, meanwhile, had 133 candidates for the House as of Tuesday. ROB HIPSKIND, director of the party’s coordinated campaign, hopes to use caucuses to fill a few holes. “We think we have a good chance to win in Stowe,” he said,


but no Dem stepped forward to challenge Republican HEIDI SCHEUERMANN. “Rutland Senate, we have a chance to win there with the right candidate,” he added. Currently there are five Republican hopefuls for the county’s three seats, but nary a Democrat to be seen.

Keenan Departs

One of Vermont’s longest-serving lawmakers is retiring at the end of the year. Rep. KATHLEEN KEENAN (D-St. Albans) has represented her district since 1989. She succeeded her father, Roland, who died in office — and then she occupied the seat for 39 years. Keenan is second in tenure behind Rep. ALICE EMMONS (D-Springfield), who’s been in the House since 1983. “It’s time to take some time for myself and my family,” she said. “I’m looking forward to doing some things in winter that I haven’t been able to do.” With Keenan’s Republican seatmate, COREY PARENT, running for the Senate, the two-seat St. Albans district will be electing two brand-new representatives this fall.

as possible. They have some blurry old photos to guide them and what Miller calls a “spectacular drawing” by Mead himself. Miller plans to start his wood sculpture in early August at the Barre Granite Museum, where visitors will be able to watch him at work. The installation of the new “Agriculture” is tentatively scheduled for November 5, according to Miller. This is a unique opportunity for an artist — to create a capstone for the state’s most renowned public building. “It is humbling and an honor,” said Miller.

Media Notes

The Burlington Free Press has jettisoned another long-time staffer. GLENN RUSSELL has been a photographer at the paper, and a constant presence at just about every big event in Vermont, for 25 years. (He should write a memoir for sure.) It’s a curious move in a way; a tabloid paper has to make a splash with its singlestory front page, and a compelling image is the best way to accomplish that. But for the most part, the Free Press relies on its reporters to take photos. It’s cheaper. Speaking of cheaper, a sudden format change took Brattleboro radio listeners by surprise last Thursday. WKVT radio, without notice, dropped virtually all its news/talk programming and started playing country music. In fact, it’s airing exactly the same format as WINQ, its sister station in Keene, N.H. The only exception: WKVT’s weekday local program “Green Mountain Mornings,” hosted by area journalist OLGA PETERS, remains on the air, at least for now. (Disclosure: I’m a guest on GMM every Monday; I receive no compensation from WKVT.) But gone are progressive talkers STEPHANIE MILLER and Vermont native THOM HARTMANN, who formerly filled most of the daytime schedule. “I’m disappointed,” said CHRIS LENOIS, Peters’ predecessor on GMM. He now handles communications for Landmark College in Putney. “People stop me on the street and ask, ‘What happened?’ I don’t have the answer.” The only guess you need make: saving money. WKVT and WINQ are owned by Michigan-based Saga Communications, which owns 88 radio stations, mostly in smaller markets. On its website, Saga boasts proudly, “We believe in local media.” I guess that belief doesn’t extend to local print media; Saga officials did not return calls for comment. m

Work is beginning on a new statue for the Statehouse dome. After a formal bidding process conducted by the state Department of Buildings and General Services, two central Vermont sculptors were chosen to team up on the project. CHRIS MILLER and JERRY WILLIAMS are best known for working in granite. For this effort, however, Williams will craft a onequarter scale model statue from clay and then cast a replica in plaster. Miller, who is an experienced wood sculptor, will use the model as a reference for making a 14foot statue out of mahogany. This will be the third statue to grace the golden dome. The original “Agriculture” statue was the work of 19th-century sculptor (and Vermont native) LARKIN GOLDSMITH MEAD JR. Due to weathering, his statue had rotted by the mid-1930s. It was replaced in 1938 with a folk-art piece crafted by then Statehouse sergeant-at-arms DWIGHT DWINELL. His lady is now on her last legs. “The first statue was white pine,” explained Miller. “The second was Ponderosa pine. Both are sponges. When they took down the [Dwinell] statue, it was completely waterlogged and in bad shape.” The new statue will be made of wood because it’s the historically correct medium and because the dome couldn’t support the weight of, say, a big hunk of stone. Williams and Miller will try to recapture Mead’s original as faithfully

On the Brink: Burlington Development Pushes Boundaries on Lakeview Terrace B Y KATI E J I CK LI N G






The Redstone project


ennis Breitigan studied a thin fracture in the parking lot pavement at the top of Depot Street in Burlington. The Naylor & Breen Builders superintendent paused to think, then shouted directions at Josh Masterson, who maneuvered the claw of an excavator to shore up a wall of dirt with a large concrete block. Gazing down a 40-foot drop to the city’s waterfront below, Breitigan explained that a part of the hillside was caving in. That’s one of the perils of building a four-story, 43-unit apartment complex on one of the Old North End’s steepest cliffs. “It’s a big one,” Breitigan said matterof-factly last week of the construction project at 85 North Avenue. It’s also the most challenging and riskiest to date for Erik Hoekstra, managing partner of real estate company Redstone. The complex will stand on 50foot galvanized steel columns anchored

by piles sunk deep into the ground. A 32-car parking garage occupies the entire first floor. Hoekstra said he saw the parcel as an “opportunity to build something unique and interesting.” He wasn’t the first Burlington developer with plans for the plot. Eric Farrell, owner of Farrell Properties, bought the property from Burlington College in February 2015, when the failing college was off-loading assets in an attempt to stay solvent. Farrell paid $150,000 for the oddly shaped parcel in one of a series of purchases that included the acreage down the street at 375 North Avenue, on which he’s currently constructing the 739-unit Cambrian Rise development. Farrell said he had too much on his plate at the time to take on another residential project. So, two months later, he sold the land for $155,000 to “the boys at Redstone.”

The land was cheap by Burlington standards, Hoekstra said, in part because of the complexity of the terrain — and because the Committee on Temporary Shelter next door has a long-term easement on a portion of the parking lot, further limiting the buildable space. He downsized the project to address the construction challenges; originally, Redstone had planned a 65-unit complex. “We have to deal with cantilevering a building 40 feet in the air,” Hoekstra explained. Engineering studies showed that the building’s foundation would be stable on a layer of marine sand deposited millions of years ago when the Champlain Sea covered the region. According to Hoekstra, that’s better to build on than the loamy soil that covers much of the rest of the city of Burlington. Just to be sure, a vibratory hammer plunged construction piles — which will

hold up the steel columns — into the ground last week, Breitigan said. Predictably, nearby neighbors on Lakeview Terrace heard the rumble of equipment — and not for the first time. In 2012, the Hartland Group, a develop-


ment company cofounded by Mayor Miro Weinberger, broke ground on a 25unit apartment building at the north end of the street. Residents pushed back at the time against the size of the Packard Lofts development and the associated parking issues. A couple of years later, they also


DEVELOPMENT expressed concerns about the expansion of homeless advocacy nonprofit COTS, which opened a new facility at the southern end of the street in 2017. Hoekstra heard similar complaints about 85 North Avenue. At a Development Review Board meeting last year, Lakeview residents objected to everything from the parking plan and street traffic to the size of the building and where resident pooches would pee. “Don’t you think you could provide a dog area? Guess who’s got the closest grass?” Julie Perlmutter objected in an interview with Seven Days last week. Hoekstra said he would not oppose the latest local grievance, which concerns the likely increase in traffic from

the complex. A group has circulated a petition to close off Lakeview Terrace at its southern end, gathering more than 100 signatures, Perlmutter said. The effort aims to persuade the city’s Public Works Commission to take up the issue. Hoekstra said he learned his lesson from the Packard Lofts project and preemptively visited neighbors to show them the plans in 2015. After getting their feedback, he changed the façade of the building and plans for parking and walkways — and then had another round of conversations to show how he had incorporated the suggestions. Redstone received its final city permits in June 2017 and expects to complete the project by next spring. “Erik accommodated a lot of things that residents brought up,” said Alan Bjerke, a Lakeview resident who led a legal challenge against Packard Lofts. “I think he did it right.”




The edge of the cliff

Hoekstra is not the only one in the area who sees value in the lake views. Across Depot Street, Cynthia Smith is selling a similarly steep 0.1-acre lot for $129,000. With a retaining wall foundation, she said, construction is possible. The land has been in her family for 180 years, but Smith, who lives in Massachusetts, is ready to give it up. Employees at the city’s planning and zoning office said they’ve been getting calls asking for more details about the plot since it went on the market a month ago. “It going to take a special buyer who wants to be in town and take on a challenging project,” Smith said. “There are very few spaces around like that one.” As Seven Days reported in 2016, precipitous terrain in the Queen City has posed problems for developers and residents alike. In 2013, a condo association along Manhattan Drive sued its builder, Dennis Rouille, and his subcontractors because a retaining wall had slipped down a steep slope over Burlington’s Intervale. The building had moved more than three inches in some places, said David Goode, president of the 15member condo association, and would require costly repairs. The still-pending suit requests that the builders repair the parking lot and retaining wall to stabilize the condos. It should have been a “very standard construction project,” Goode said. “They just blew it. All we want is for it to be fixed.” The city relies on the expertise of the project’s technical engineer in such cases, said assistant director of the Department of Public Works Norm Baldwin, who’s an engineer himself. It’s also in the interest of the developer to make sure they get it right. Developers “don’t want to put [up] a building that’s not going to be there in short order,” he said. Hoekstra seems well aware of the risks. “If something goes south,” he said, “it’s our butts on the lines.” m



Head of the Class: Did Lawmakers Politicize Vermont’s Education Chief? B Y ALI CI A FR EESE

06.06.18-06.13.18 SEVEN DAYS 16 LOCAL MATTERS




s Gov. Phil Scott prepares to appoint Vermont’s next education secretary in the coming weeks, some lawmakers and education leaders are questioning anew whether the choice should lie with the governor’s office. Last week, Rep. Dave Sharpe (D-Bristol), outgoing chair of the House Education Committee, said voting in 2012 to transfer appointment authority from the State Board of Education to the governor was one of the biggest regrets of his 15 years as a lawmaker. Longtime skeptics say the law has exposed public education to political whim, exactly as they predicted. But the arrangement still has plenty of supporters who argue that it has brought stronger leadership to a decentralized system of public education. State Board of Education chair Krista Huling, who said she sees the merits of arguments on both sides, expects the debate to continue. “I think what we’re seeing now is a [desire to] evaluate whether Vermonters want to keep that process,” she said. It’s likely no coincidence that this soul-searching is taking place at a moment when school spending is the most contentious political topic in Montpelier. Lawmakers and the administration are deadlocked over Scott’s insistence on buying down property tax rates using onetime state revenue. At a more fundamental level, the debate is about the role state government should play in controlling school spending. Scott’s finance commissioner, Adam Greshin, has repeatedly said the state must manage education spending just as it does other government expenditures. Among other steps, the governor has proposed increasing student-teacher ratios. Many in the legislature view this as an affront to the local boards that propose school budgets and the voters who approve them — a violation of the state’s long-standing principle of local control. For decades, the state board was in charge of hiring and firing the state’s education commissioner who, unlike the heads of other departments, was not directly accountable to the governor. The commissioner ran the Department of Education and reported to the state board, an independent body whose members are appointed to six-year

terms by the governor. The terms are staggered, which limits a governor’s ability to quickly stack the board with those who share his or her views. After two years in office, Scott has appointed four of the board’s 10 members. Since at least the 1980s, Vermont governors had sought the authority to appoint the commissioner. They reasoned that the state’s chief executive should have more say in public education because it is an essential government service, one paid for in part with state money. Once-resistant lawmakers relented in 2012 at the behest of Democratic governor Peter Shumlin. They passed Act 98, upgrading the education department to an agency led by a governor-appointed secretary. The new law preserved the state board and its authority to make rules on a variety of issues — though some argued the entity would become superfluous — and stipulated that the governor choose a secretary from three candidates submitted by the board. According to Scott’s communications director, Rebecca Kelley, the governor

supported the changes when he was lieutenant governor and continues to believe it was the right move because “education is the largest expenditure in state government, and it’s also an incredibly important function of state government.” At first, the new system didn’t seem all that different. Shumlin retained commissioner Armando Vilaseca as agency secretary for a year, then appointed Rebecca Holcombe to the post in 2014. When Scott took office in 2017, he kept Holcombe on. The second-guessing began in earnest when Holcombe resigned unexpectedly in April over policy disagreements with the governor. In an op-ed last week — her first public statement since quitting — Holcombe criticized the governor’s proposals to cut education spending, writing that “school budgets belong to districts, not the Governor.” Holcombe’s departure led Sharpe to reconsider his 2012 vote. The way he sees it, Scott “pushed her out,” depriving the state of a highly effective education leader. “She’d still be there with the


support of the State Board of Education,” the Bristol representative reasoned. Holcombe’s own take? “I think the larger issue is more about political polarization,” she wrote to Seven Days. Even were the state to return appointment power to a nonpartisan board, the former secretary said, “I don’t think it would matter because everything is so politicized.” One might dismiss Sharpe’s objections as a symptom of that partisanship — the buyer’s remorse of a Democrat now that a Republican occupies the governor’s office. But apprehension about the new system predates Scott’s tenure. Even as Shumlin pushed for the power of appointment, at least one member of his cabinet raised objections. “I lost that debate,” Jeb Spaulding, Shumlin’s secretary of administration, said last week. His opinion hasn’t changed. By allowing a governor to replace the education secretary at will, “you’re really adding a level of volatility to the education system,” Spaulding said. “It would be better to insulate it a little bit from the political system.”

Despite Bumps, Winooski Bike Lane Pilot Rolls Forward B Y M O LLY WA LSH




eonard Gregory sat on his front stoop on Winooski’s hilly Weaver Street last Friday and eyeballed the fresh white paint marking a bike lane the city had officially rolled out just that morning. The change had already generated controversy. “Myself, I think it’s a good idea,” Gregory said evenly. He doesn’t bike but believes it makes sense to designate a portion of the street for cyclists, especially children who often ride to school. “It’s a big improvement,” he said. The eight-foot-wide trial bike lane is a mile long. It’s taking over the parking lane on the west side of Weaver, which normally has spots on both sides. The pilot project will last just 10 days, until June 10. But even that was too long for critics who worried that the “pop-up” lane would reduce street parking at St. Francis Xavier Church and make the street more difficult for cars to navigate. The original plan showed “no understanding” of where elderly and handicapped parishioners park for church, said Robin McCormick, a parishioner who helped organize a meeting with city officials after the plan emerged. The project seemed to have been drafted without any input from parishioners, including seniors who attend mass daily, she said, and “that didn’t feel good.’’ In response to critics, Winooski officials excluded the block that runs along St. Francis Xavier from the path and said parishioners could park the length of the street for church events. Were city officials surprised by the controversy? “No, we weren’t, just because any time that we are eliminating parking we know that there’s going to be some opposition,’’ said Jon Rauscher, director of Winooski’s Public Works Commission. And the whole point of the experiment is to get feedback before doing anything permanent, he added. The kerfuffle, which has played out at public meetings and in heated posts on Front Porch Forum over the last two weeks, is the latest skirmish in the turf war between cycling advocates pushing for safer routes and motorists who don’t want to relinquish parking spaces and driving lanes. The controversy echoes the heated one that played out for months over Burlington’s North Avenue,

Weaver Street in Winooski

where a bike lane edged out a vehicular lane — first temporarily, and then permanently — despite the howls of some drivers. Some Winooski motorists griped about the new lane on the city’s Facebook page, saying it hogged space needed for cars. Vented one: “Come on Winooski, let’s get rid of this project.”



The bike lane experiment grew out of a study for a proposed $23 million redevelopment of Winooski’s upper Main Street, which is often choked with traffic. That plan does not call for a protected bike lane, so as an alternative planners decided to explore new cycling options on Weaver, a quieter street parallel to Main. Many cyclists already use Weaver as opposed to Main. “There’s less traffic, and you don’t have to sit next to dump trucks and stuff,” said Bill Lockwood, an avid cyclist who splits his time between Burlington and Winooski.

Before the trial began, city employees gathered information on traffic volume and speed on Weaver. They are taking new measures during the pilot to track how many cyclists use the new lane and to see if cars slow down. These data will be used for further study of whether to make the bike lane permanent, to be conducted with assistance from the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. The Burlington-based cycling advocacy organization Local Motion has been involved as a design consultant and has offered traffic cones and other equipment. Grants are being tapped for study and design, and the pilot’s cost to the city is only about $300 for the road paint, Rauscher said. It’s temporary and will wash away. Once the study is complete, the city will solicit public comment and decide whether to make the lane permanent, Rauscher said. There is no time line. On the street Tuesday, a few days into the experiment, residents offered mixed views. Charles Dowling noted that even before the lane was painted, a passing car had knocked the side-view mirror off his parked car. He supports bike lanes in general but said Weaver may be too narrow. Reba Darling worried about losing parking, especially since people who want to avoid downtown meters

TRANSPORTATION favor the free parking on Weaver, making those spots scarce. Still, Darling supports the concept of bike lanes and suggested that resident-only parking might be wise if the pilot becomes permanent.   The lane already had won a thumbsup from some cyclists. Jake Hohmann pedaled up Weaver last Friday, although not in the designated bike lane, partly because parked cars obstructed it in places. (The city is not ticketing people for parking there during the pilot.) The self-employed engineer, a recent transplant to Burlington from Boulder, Colo., rides four times a week. The Burlington area doesn’t seem to have as many bike lanes or cyclists as Boulder, noted Hohmann. “I like that they are trying to promote bike lanes and biking,” he said. “It’s good for the environment and for people’s health.” Liz Wolf, who lives at the intersection of Weaver and Stevens streets, rides regularly to her job four miles away at Burlington’s Rock Point School, even in the winter. “When I saw the lines go up, I actually couldn’t even believe it,” she said. “I was so thrilled.” But Lockwood offered several criticisms. Among them: The dotted line down the center of the lane, dividing bike traffic, is unnecessary, he said. He was glad the city had not installed bollards, flexible plastic posts, as a physical barrier from cars. Lockwood doesn’t like that approach, which is being used in a trial on a stretch of North Union Street in Burlington. Snowplows and street sweepers have trouble clearing the lane, he said, and it gets cluttered with snow, leaves, trash and broken glass that punctures bike tires. “I don’t like protected lanes,” Lockwood said. “They are protected from being clean.’’ The Weaver Street project is Winooski’s only bike infrastructure experiment in the foreseeable future, according to Rauscher. “It’s a trial,” reminded Wolf. “It’s like a first draft.” m Contact:

Two police officers were justified in shooting a suicidal man in February along Interstate 89 in Richmond, according to the Vermont Attorney General’s Office and the Chittenden County state’s attorney. Attorney General T.J. Donovan announced last Friday that Vermont State Police Trooper Christopher Brown and Richmond Police Officer Richard Greenough will not face charges for fatally shooting 42-year-old Benjamin Gregware of Sheldon. On the afternoon of February 11, Gregware, who had been laid off from his job and lost custody of his children, called his ex-wife and threatened to commit suicide. She notified police, who called Gregware. He sounded “slurred and confused but lucid regarding his intention to ‘end it,’” according to a description of the incident by Bram Kranichfeld, criminal division chief for the Vermont Attorney General’s Office. Brown pulled an armed Gregware over in Richmond; Greenough arrived on scene shortly after. Brown ordered Gregware out of the vehicle and commanded him more than 10 times to drop his gun, according to Kranichfeld. Gregware pointed what the Attorney General’s Office referred to as a “MAC-10-style assault pistol” at his Christopher Brown own head and walked toward the officers. Gregware, who had no criminal record, never pointed the gun at the officers. Brown, who was standing about 25 feet away, fired seven shots from a semiautomatic rifle; Greenough fired five shots from a .40-caliber pistol. Four bullets struck Gregware, in the head, arms and torso, according to Kranichfeld. An ambulance arrived about 15 minutes after the shooting and took Gregware to the University of Vermont Medical Center, where he died about an hour later. The pistol Gregware held was loaded with 15 live rounds, according to Kranichfeld.

The Vermont House gave final approval to a new budget Tuesday, and the Senate is expected to do the same later this week. But while it was pitched as a controversy-free proposal, the bill appears destined for yet another gubernatorial veto. Gov. Phil Scott, who rejected the legislature’s first budget last month, opposes its second attempt because the proposal wouldn’t prevent an increase in the nonresidential property tax rate. His objections didn’t stop the House from voting 83-40, along party lines, for the new budget. Before doing so, lawmakers rejected several amendments designed to meet the Republican governor’s demand that property tax rates stay level. Rep. Scott Beck (R-St. Johnsbury) proposed keeping rates the same by using about $33 million in onetime general fund money to pay for Act 46 school district merger incentives. That money would be paid back to the general fund in later years. Democrats suggested the amendment would simply postpone a tax increase, which would occur when it came time to pay the money back. The Senate is expected to take up the budget Mitzi Johnson bill Thursday, but with 25 days left in the fiscal year, the legislature and governor appear no closer to a compromise. House Speaker Mitzi Johnson (D-South Hero) said in a statement after the vote that “this bill allows us to continue working on those areas of disagreement while taking the threat of government shutdown off the table.”

1969-2018, TAMPA, FLA.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden death of Andrew Nelson Musty in a traffic accident in Tampa, Fla., on May 30. Andrew was born January 14, 1969, in Burlington, Vt., to parents Sherrill (Nelson) and Richard Musty. With younger brother Jamie, he enjoyed a healthy mix of family, friends, dogs, cats, travel and social activism. Andrew attended Burlington schools and graduated from Burlington High School in 1986. After receiving a BA in psychology with a minor in art from the University of Vermont, he studied furniture design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, exploring his love of contemporary design. Following that, he worked in

her daughters and especially the youngest, Emersyn, to whom he was devoted. Andrew joins his loving father, Rik; baby brother Jonathan; grandparents Janette and Hubert Musty of Red Wing, Minn.; Leeds and Alice Nelson; and aunt Holly Nelson, of Montréal. He will finally get to meet his heroes, Buzz Aldrin and Leonard Nimoy from “Star Trek.” A memorial celebration of Andrew’s life will take place Saturday, June 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Unitarian Church, 152 Pearl St., Burlington, VT. In lieu of flowers, donations, work or support for addiction treatment services would be greatly appreciated.

Karen Johnson 1943-2018, SOUTH BURLINGTON

Karen Lee Cunningham Johnson, 74, made her final transition peacefully with family and friends present on May 30, 2018. Karen was the daughter of Raymond and Thelma Cunningham and the sister of Mira Lynn Glen and her husband, Donald, of Delray Beach, Fla. She died of complications after suffering from a rare neurological disease, corticobasal degeneration, since 2010. Karen graduated from Bates College and went on

to receive a master’s degree in guidance and psychological services from Springfield College. She then went on to work for SUNY Oswego and SUNY Plattsburgh, where she met and married James Johnson. After divorcing, she moved to South Burlington in 1991, where she worked as assistant director of Spectrum Youth & Family Services and received a second master’s degree from Saint Michael’s College in administration and management in 1994. Karen retired from Spectrum in 2007, having stated at retirement that her work at Spectrum was the most rewarding and best part of her career. Following Karen’s retirement, she volunteered at the United Way, Fletcher Allen ICU, Flynn Theater, and Lyric Theater on costumes. Many thanks go to Team Karen, a group of about 13 friends and neighbors who provided support and caregiving during the past year. Thanks also go to the wonderful caregivers who did virtually everything to keep Karen safe and in her own home. A party in celebration of Karen’s life will be held at a later date. Those wishing to honor her memory may make a donation to Spectrum Youth & Family Services or the KidSafe Collaborative.

secretary “will be another signal in terms of how politicized that position has become. “The governor has basically gone all in on public education,” she continued. “If he appoints a secretary that is aligned with this move toward more state control over the finances of the school districts … then Vermonters need to decide how to hold him accountable for it.” m Contact:


questioned why education should be any different. Jeff Francis, executive director of the Vermont Superintendents Association, had a ready answer: “The difference between education and nearly every other governmental service … is that education relies heavily on what happens at the local level.” His point: Public education already has a governance structure made up of local school boards. Nicole Mace, executive director of the Vermont School Boards Association, suggested Scott’s pick for


observed that the governor “has put forward a plan to cut half a billion dollars out of public education, and he owns that.” David Wolk, education commissioner from 1999 to 2001, has long thought the governor should have a more direct role in overseeing education policy. “[Schools are] far and away the most significant part of the state budget, and because of that, there ought to be accountability,” Wolk said.

Recalling that as education commissioner he served “many bosses,” Wolk argues that the new system creates a clearer chain of command. “The current secretary is accountable to the governor, who is accountable to the voters,” he said. If voters don’t like the prevailing education policy, they can vote the governor out of office. “People will say it injects politics into it, but politics is pervasive — it’s a part of life,” Wolk went on. Noting that the governor appoints the secretaries of all other state agencies, he

Tampa designing residential outdoor environments with decks, seating, dining and swimming pools. There were early signs of his creativity when, as a 4-year-old, busy at his carpentry bench, he had to remind his mother that his name was “Mr. Worker Man.” Andrew was an enthusiastic model maker, rocket launcher, BMX rider, and member of high school drama, yearbook, and track and ski teams. His friendships from those days were lasting, and he loved being part of organizing high school reunions. Around that time, he and his father built an Old Town canoe in the garage and took a camping trip down the Mississippi River. Andrew adored his younger brother, James, who shared his sense of humor and with whom he was looking forward to some epic talks on a summer road trip to their dad’s hometown of Red Wing, Minn. Strong, beautiful, humble and always with a twinkle in his eye, Andrew leaves his mother, Sherrill; brother Jamie; aunt Jane Nelson and partner, Patricia Meredith; cousin Carrie Haber and husband, Daniel Webster, and their children, Alice and Gahan; cousin David Haber and wife, Dominique Ritter; and the light of his life, Kim Molnar,

Sampling Montréal’s Ongoing Fringe Festival B Y S A D I E W I LLI A M S

There are many ways to enjoy Fringe, from the “After Dark” events to the Fringe Park, which English media director Guillaume Doussin calls “the hub of the festival.” There are also the “A-Z” shows, referring to performers that applied and were selected for a venue by lottery. Roughly two-thirds of the shows are in English (the website indicates the language of each show). I attended two shows on Friday, June 1, to get a taste. The first, Dance Side of the Moon, was choreographed by Helen Simard and performed by Maxine Segalowitz, with projections by Kim-Sanh Châu. It was staged on the third floor of a discreet St-Laurent building in the Espace Freestanding Room, a coworking space and venue for performance artists. The intimate crowd of about 20 filled the folding chairs. Colorful index cards greeted us on the seats, each with a different message, such as “If you sit here you will be safe” and “If you sit here your chair will be uncomfortable.” Billed as a reinterpretation of Pink Floyd’s iconic concept album The Dark Side of the Moon, the Montréal show was entrancing and, well, uncomfortable. As the record played from a booth behind the chairs, Segalowitz threw herself against the wall, then on the floor. Her alternately sensual and contorted movements spoke of pain, isolation and an entirely relatable insanity. During a



ontréal in the summer is a beautiful thing. The long parkas disappear and festivals flood the streets — some, like the upcoming MURAL FESTIVAL, more visible than others. While it may be harder to spot from the bustling streets, the ST-AMBROISE MONTRÉAL FRINGE FESTIVAL is still one of the region’s best bets for experimental theater. The original fringe festival was founded in Edinburgh in 1947 by a group of actors who opted to forgo the rigors of the jury process for the prestigious Edinburgh International Festival. Instead, they started their own event, taking over bars on the outskirts of the fest — the fringe. Since then, fringe has grown to encompass all things weird, dirty, experimental or exquisite that might not make it to a traditional stage. Today, hundreds of such festivals take place in cities around the world. Each has its own standards and governing bodies, but most adhere to a common set of ideals. And most are still unjuried, albeit with some exceptions, such as FringeNYC. This is the 28th iteration of the StAmbroise Montréal Fringe Festival, which is directed by Amy Blackmore and is part of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals. From May 28 to June 17, it features more than 800 shows in a variety of venues, most situated on or around Boulevard Saint-Laurent.


The Pink Tacos in Greasy: A Lesbian Love Story

piece titled “Money,” her face became gargoyle-like, her movements staccato and sharp. Segalowitz screamed, embodying the sound through movement, then instantly transformed into a lithe, blissed-out seductress. As quickly as that new face came, it departed, and we were watching her writhe on the floor. The next show on my schedule, Carmilla, opened a mere five minutes after Dance Side closed, three blocks down the street in the Wiggle Room. This decadent, speakeasy-style venue boasts red velvet and a decidedly vaudevillian vibe. I settled in with a perfectly mixed Vesper cocktail for the burlesque interpretation of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s 1871 gothic vampire novella. Staged by Pointed Cap Playhouse, the show tells the story of a queer vampire who seduces the daughters of wealthy aristocrats and transforms them into seductive creatures of the night, complete with sassy new outfits full of lace and puckers adorned with lipstick. The show’s setting alternated between reality and a dream world in which Carmilla and protagonist/narrator Laura met, mostly to strip and shimmy endearingly. Waking moments were allotted to fathers trying to figure

out what shenanigans their daughters were up to. At the end of the show, Laura, played by Stella Saint, delivered the moral. Carmilla isn’t about fear of the dark or of monsters, she said. “It’s about the fear that lives in the heart of humankind. I chose to see past the fear.” Essentially the message was: Don’t judge, love is love, and try not to be a dick. Feminist and LGBTQ themes are strong in this Fringe. Another title that should definitely pique interest is Greasy: A Lesbian Love Story. The 105-minute production by Glam Gam Productions reframes the “family” film Grease, denouncing the idea that women should change themselves for men. Get your tickets in advance — this one has been selling out. There’s also Is That How Clowns Have Sex? A One-Woman, Queer Clown Sex-Ed Show by Fiona Ross of Maximaliste Productions. I bumped into the two-time Spirit of the Fringe award winner at Dance Side of the Moon, where she told me about her show. It sounded like the best fake sex-ed class you’ll ever sit through.

close to St-Laurent. Most of the shows run on the later side, and, after running around all evening, you’ll be thankful for a quick stumble home. Be sure to eat poutine at Patati Patata (4177 Boulevard Saint-Laurent), even if it’s hot out. Really. The greasy goodness will keep you going all night and help you absorb the strong, balanced cocktails at venues such as the Wiggle Room. The latter is also a must-stop: The service is top-notch, the drinks are classic, and the stage is magical. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the breadth of the programming, ask for staff picks when you stop in to buy your tickets at the box office on St-Laurent. Or follow public relations coordinator Sarah G. LaForce on Twitter at @ SarahGLaForce; she’s been posting about her favorite shows. Tickets are also available online, and I’d advise purchasing a festival pass if you plan to see three or more shows. If you miss the Fringe, don’t fear — Montréal offers plenty of summer festivals. The Mural Festival shares St-Laurent with the Fringe from June 7 through 17, bringing internationally

acclaimed street artists and performers to paint the town pretty much every color. Then comes the FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE JAZZ DE MONTRÉAL, running from June CHANNEL 15 28 to July 7.

$1 from every Negroni sold will go to The LGBTQIA Alliance of Vermont


Members and allies of the LGBTQ community — or anyone paying attention to local news — will remember the Mister Sister debacle. In February 2017, the owner of a Winooski bar, formerly known as oak 45, renamed it with what many consider a slur against trans people. The venue’s proclaimed target community reacted with outrage, and Mister Sister ultimately closed. That conversation was short on good vibes, but it did have one positive outcome nearly a year later: a podcast dedicated to serving people of color within the LGBTQ community. REGGIE CONDRA launched “BROWN ’N OUT” to create a space — albeit digital — where he and others like him could connect freely and without judgment. Condra, who works at the PIERSON LIBRARY in Shelburne, is himself brown and out. His podcast features people who share those characteristics but whose personalities, interests and stories are vastly different. And transphobia, he notes, falls into line with racism. “They both come from a place of privilege,” he says. To date, Condra has released 11

episodes of “Brown ’n Out,” ranging from 40 minutes to an hour and 22 minutes in length. Guests have included JARVIS GREEN of JAG PRODUCTIONS, mother-daughter duo MERCEDES MACK and BILLIE MILES, SUNSHINE ORTA, and ELENA LITTLEBUG. Topics have ranged from astrology to the rationality of Satanism to parental relationships. “I think it’s been successful so far,” Condra says. “If people don’t want to talk about [race, gender or sexuality],” he adds, “I’m not really interested in talking about it. I want to change the narrative. I think we are surprising, and I want people to be surprised by the range and nuance of things we have to talk about and share.” What does that sound like? In episode 10, Condra interviewed musician ADAM LION RODRIGUEZ (who uses they/them pronouns). Clocking in at 46 minutes, the podcast covers everything from Rodriguez’s love of cats to being both an introvert and a performer. Condra starts each episode by asking his guest what makes them who they are in that moment.

Rodriguez’s response? “I love books. [And] massive amounts of [Dungeons and Dragons].” Their newest book obsession is the Warriors series, which features warrior cats. When the conversation turned political, Rodriguez noted that they were about to embark for Puerto Rico to help move their parents stateside. As reasons for the move, Rodriguez cited the island’s political unrest, caused by austerity measures that were meant to diminish debt, as well as post-hurricane tensions. Condra’s interviews are full of such pivots and swerves, which keep the often-lengthy podcasts fresh and interesting. And, though race, gender and sexuality aren’t always on the table, he is clear that the podcast is for queer people of color, as its name indicates. “Brown ’n Out” underscores the importance of giving voice to people who are often doubly discriminated against. “A main goal of the podcast,” Condra says, “is to illustrate to everyone how much we are more than our identities.” SADIE WILLIAMS

Crow Cohen (right) with wife Pat Hoffmann COURTESY OF RABBI JAN SALZMAN



Nora Paley


Three months ago, Rabbi JAN SALZMAN was biking along the Burlington Greenway after hosting a weekly women’s Torah group at her congregation, Ruach haMaqom. As she passed the Lakeview Cemetery, she called out to an old friend, “Hi, Crow!” A fixture of Burlington’s activist lesbian community since the 1970s, Carol “Crow” Cohen was laid to rest at Lakeview in 2015. “At that moment, I knew we had to honor [Cohen] somehow,” Salzman recalled. “It was because of her that we began the woman’s Torah study group.” The rabbi acted quickly: On Wednesday, June 13, the Old North End’s Ruach haMaqom — Vermont’s only Jewish Renewal congregation — will host the First Annual Crow Cohen Events Series. NORA PALEY, daughter of late celebrated Thetford writer Grace Paley, will read from A Grace Paley Reader: Stories, Essays, and Poetry, published last year. Copies will be available for purchase from PHOENIX BOOKS. Salzman first met Cohen in 2014, when the former was assistant rabbi and cantor at Burlington’s Ohavi Zedek Synagogue.

“Crow wanted to explore and reintegrate her Jewish background,” said Salzman. At Cohen’s prompting, a weekly reading and discussion group was launched — and the rabbi leads it to this day. “It became this chance for primarily Jewish women to get together once a week to wrestle with text,” Salzman explained. “Learning the process was a liberating thing for Crow, it really was.” It’s fitting, then, that the first event honoring Cohen should center on text. Salzman described the Jewish tradition of Torah study as a process of sinking into “the deliciousness of the dialectic” and “using the text to wake up something that’s sleeping.” Cohen was no stranger to soul searching and spiritual awakening. Having moved to Vermont with her then-husband and small children in the early 1970s, she later came out as gay and became an integral part of local LGBTQ and activist circles. She helped found the women-only property Huntington Open Women’s Land (HOWL), among many other initiatives. For Salzman, honoring Cohen is a way to recognize the history of Burlington and to connect her relatively

young congregation to its surrounding community through the arts. “Ruach haMaqom” means “spirit of the place” in Hebrew, after all. “That group of women who are our elders, the radical lesbian women of Burlington, were a really active, vital force [here], and I want to honor them in some way,” Salzman said. “I want our congregation to celebrate the local community.” Funds raised through donations at the reading will go toward future Crow Cohen arts events — which Salzman hopes attendees will help to envision. “I want the people who come here to tell me what they want me to do,” she said, emphasizing that attendees of any and all faiths are welcome. “We’re living in an interfaith world,” Salzman said. “The arts speak our heart.” RACHEL ELIZABETH JONES

Dear Cecil,

Why aren’t there flea collars for people? I see ads for all kinds of products to protect pets from fleas and ticks, and nasty tick-borne diseases are becoming more common. I’m tired of having to strip and do an extensive tick check after every walk in the woods.

— Bill Costa

all but under control these days, one can’t say the same about the infectious diseases passed along by ticks, which, as you note, present increasingly grave threats to human health. Blame climate change in part, as more regions become warm and humid enough to support tick activity; growing populations of deer and mice that carry ticks are playing a role, too. The major Lymespreading tick was found in just 30 percent of American counties in 1998 but nearly 50 percent by 2016. Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention welcomed summer by announcing a threefold increase in the number of people infected with vectorborne diseases — vectors here being ticks, mosquitoes and their colleagues — between 2004 and 2016, noting that public-health bodies are woefully underprepared for the growing epidemiological menace. Conditions spread by ticks constitute a small rogues’

gallery of disease, including low-profile up-and-comers like babesiosis and old favorites like Rocky Mountain spotted fever. But Lyme disease remains the biggest vector-borne game in town: Some 30,000 cases are reported every year in the U.S., and studies estimate that the actual number is 10 times as high. If you don’t catch it early, long-term Lyme symptoms include arthritic joint pain, brain inflammation and facial palsy. And it’s true: Dogs do enjoy better protection against Lyme than we do, thanks to readily available vaccination. Why no equivalent for dog’s best friend? In fact, a safe, largely effective Lyme vaccine was cleared for use 20 years ago — and disappeared shortly thereafter. Lymerix, as it was called, had the misfortune of showing up at a crucial juncture of the anti-vax era — that is, shortly after the 1998 publication of the infamous (and since retracted) report in the Lancet falsely linking




onsider the dog, Bill, and how it lives. It sheds and slobbers. It dwells close to the ground. It doesn’t shower much. It rolls around in dirt and will happily do the same in feces or rotting animal remains where available. Let’s just say that if your personal habits depart much from the aforementioned, you might not really need flea control of any sort. Particularly in developed countries, modern hygiene has rendered fleas pretty much a medical nonissue. Where they remain a problem (e.g., in subSaharan Africa) it’s often because they burrow into the feet and hands — more easily countered with a pesticide wash than with dedicated neckwear. But let’s separate the fleas from the ticks here and the havoc-wreaking potential of each. Granted, fleas have run up a more impressive score if you take the historical view — they carried bubonic plague, after all. But while we’ve got plague

the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine with autism. That year, during the Food & Drug Administration approval process for Lymerix, some members of the reviewing panel expressed concerns that the vaccine could theoretically trigger an immune response leading to arthritis. Because the drug tested safe in clinical trials and this risk was, again, purely hypothetical, the panel approved it unanimously. Word got out, though, to a public then in its first flush of vaccine panic. Soon enough, news reports were linking Lymerix to isolated cases of fever and joint pain, and sales of the product fell through the floor. A 2007 study found no increased incidence of arthritis in vaccine recipients, but the Lymerix ship had long since sailed: Facing lawsuits and turning relatively little profit, its manufacturer had pulled it off the market in 2002. (Other factors that probably didn’t help its chances: The vaccine was expensive, and even after the 12-month, three-shot regimen required for full protection, you still had a nonnegligible 20 percent chance of remaining susceptible to Lyme disease.)

Where’s that leave us? A French company is developing a Lyme vaccine that might provide even better protection, though its CEO acknowledges it will be “hard to convince anti-vax lobbyists,” and the drug’s years away from public release regardless. And while Lyme may be the worst tick-borne offender out there, it may not hold that title for long: Meet the Powassan virus, currently still rare but on the rise in the Northeast. Yale epidemiologist Durland Fish wrote recently that Powassan “could surpass Lyme disease in its impact upon public health”: Infection leads to encephalitis, causing fatality in 10 percent of cases and permanent brain damage in fully half. There’s no vaccine for this one either, although in Europe they’re vaccinating against a similar form of encephalitis, so we’ve at least got a starting place. But you may as well get used to those full-body tick checks, Bill. One worries that any sensible prophylactic treatment could meet its match in a vaccine-wary American populace, just as Lyme vaccine did and may again. You can wear bug spray, tall socks and long sleeves, but, as they say, there’s no cure for stupid.

Why Must We Dial 802 When Making Some Calls Within Vermont?


codes, it was assigned the easiest area code to dial: 212. Los Angeles, with the second-highest volume, got 213; and Chicago, 312. Vermont, with its comparatively low call volume and single area code, got 802. To further minimize errors, codes that resemble each other were assigned to geographically distant places; hence Utah’s 801 and Vermont’s 802. Fast-forward to the 21st century: Why don’t all calls to and from 802

was dialing. Lower numbers produced fewer clicks; higher numbers, more clicks. Areas that received the highest volume of calls were assigned area codes that were quicker to dial — that is, had fewer clicks. As Megan Garber explains in her February 2014 piece in the Atlantic, titled “Our Numbered Days: The Evolution of the Area Code,” to ensure that early, primitive computers accurately recognized the number of clicks, AT&T engineers created a system that placed either a 0 or a 1 in the middle of each area code. Zero indicated that the state had only one area code, and 1 indicated it had more than one. Because New York City had the highest call volume in those days and was located in a state with multiple area

connect without using the area code? Rob Koester is vice president of product management at Consolidated Communications, the company that acquired FairPoint Communications in July 2017. As Koester explained, two circumstances require a customer to dial a 10-digit versus a seven-digit number. The first occurs primarily in large populations centers that are running out of phone numbers. Once a new area code is assigned in that area, he explained, everyone must switch to 10-digit dialing, regardless of whether they’re calling from a landline or a cellphone. That’s not yet the case in Vermont. Landline callers in the Green Mountain State sometimes must dial 802, Koester

said, because of how the network was built and subdivided geographically. In the early days of telephony, each phone exchange — that is, the first three digits of a seven-digit number — was assigned to a specific “calling scope,” or geographic area, within which all calls were considered local. In those days, customers could call other exchanges within their own calling scope, such as Burlington to Winooski, for free. But calling a different calling scope, such as Burlington to Brattleboro, incurred a long-distance charge. “The seven-digit dialing is a remnant of those local calling scopes,” Koester explained. “Any place that was traditionally considered a local call is still a seven-digit dial.” So, how do Vermonters who’ve never used a rotary phone or incurred a longdistance charge know whether a call requires seven digits or 10? According to Koester, local calling scopes were usually, though not always, laid out according to city and town boundaries. Generally speaking, neighboring exchanges are still considered “local.” Things got more complicated when cellphone companies arrived, because they laid out their cellular networks differently and have greater flexibility in call-scope design. In addition, wireless providers aren’t regulated by local public utilities commissions in the way that landline companies are. Further muddying the waters is when people use cellphones to call landlines, and vice versa. In those cases, Koester said, connectivity rules depend upon where and how the two networks interconnect. In short, don’t ask. Still irked about having to dial 802 when calling within Vermont? Get used to it. As Koester pointed out, sevendigit dialing is “a dying breed” in most of the country. Just be grateful that Vermont isn’t at risk of depleting its precious supply of 802 phone numbers anytime soon. m Contact:

INFO Got a Vermont head-scratcher that’s been puzzling you? Ask us!


Today’s system of assigning area codes, known as the North American Numbering Plan, was developed by AT&T in 1947 to simplify long-distance direct dialing and minimize the human error associated with misinterpretation of the spoken word. By the time the area-code system was fully implemented in 1951, most calls were placed using rotary dials, which electronically conveyed a series of clicks, indicating which digits the caller


erry Wendelken called recently with a question that many Vermonters might also have: Why is it sometimes necessary to dial 802 when calling a phone number that’s within Vermont? Wendelken, who makes many calls for his work in Barre, theorized that it’s not necessarily based on where he’s calling. He’s tried phoning towns near Barre, only to hear an automated voice say, “We’re sorry. When placing a call in this area, it is now necessary to dial an area code plus the seven-digit number.” Moreover, the rules seem different for cellphones than for landlines. “It drives me freaking nuts,” Wendelken fumed. “I must waste a half hour a week, if not more, redialing phone numbers … What’s going on?” In short, growth and progress. Much of what we take for granted with 21st-century telecommunications, such as unlimited calling and free long distance, are relatively recent developments. Some of the technology we rely on today uses infrastructure and regulations that were created in earlier times. Vermonters are fiercely proud of their single area code. The cultural cachet of 802 runs so deep that residents sport the stenciled digits on T-shirts, bumper stickers and the butts of their sweatpants. Still, we get irked if we can’t order a pizza without dialing those three extra digits, because we assume that any call within the 802 must be local. To understand the situation, it helps to know why Vermont was assigned its area code in the first place. Though it may seem random that Vermont got 802 while Utah got 801 and South Carolina 803, this disarray of digits was done by design. First, some background. From the telephone’s invention in the 1870s until the mid-1900s, people placed calls by speaking with live operators, who made manual connections through a physical switchboard.

What’s happening lakeside this summer in Burlington





12 13 14


t’s hard to imagine that the curving Lake Champlain shoreline of Burlington Bay was once littered with oil tanks, industrial barges, timber and pollution-spewing smokestacks. A few remnants of the working harbor remain, but the stretch between Rock Point and Oakledge Park is increasingly a place for recreation, restaurants and pleasure boating. Some 30 years after the City of Burlington used the public trust doctrine to win a court battle and reclaim big chunks of the waterfront from the railroad, its transformation continues. Here’s a look at pending and possible changes, large and small, along the 4.5-mile lakeside stretch. 










1. ROCK POINT Safe from Burlington’s busy bulldozers is Rock Point, a 130-acre peninsula of green woods and meadows punctuated by a stunning cliff overlooking Lake Champlain. Two fundraising efforts are under way to conserve the land, which is owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont. One has generated more than $1.7 million to improve the existing trail network and restore the historic buildings on the property. The second is a quest for $870,000 to forever preserve the acreage from development. The impending construction of roughly 700 new housing units at nearby Cambrian Rise — the former Burlington College property — underscores the pressure on what Rock Point legacy minister Ellen McCulloch-Lovell describes as “a green lung for the city.” The diocese is seeking financial assistance from nonprofit partners, individual donors and, most likely, Burlington’s city conservation fund. The land will remain privately owned, but look for better signs directing walkers to trails that have long been open to the public. Currently the paths can be accessed on foot via North Beach and from a parking lot on the property next to the diocesan office building. Visitors are asked to register online at for a free day or season pass and, in the process, have to agree to follow the rules. Fires and nighttime use are prohibited.

2. NORTH BEACH Burlington’s oldest public beach turns 100 this year, but there’s a new sign between the water and the parking lot. A large brown placard, installed this spring, advises visitors to leash dogs and forgo glass containers in nine different languages: English, French, Nepali, Arabic, Vietnamese, Burmese, Bosnian, Swahili and Somali. Similar instructions have been installed in other city parks and greenways that are popular recreation spots for visiting Québéqois and members of the local refugee community. Parking will be free the weekend of August 11 and 12 in celebration of the city’s acquisition of the North Beach property in 1918. Back then, there were few places for Burlington residents to swim legally because so much of the city shoreline was dominated by industry or was privately held. People flocked to the Municipal Bathing Beach. The city added concessions and, in 1965, the North Beach campground. Beach attendance reached nearly 70,000 in the summer of 1967, and entrance fee revenue helped finance the purchase of other city parklands. Last year, the beach drew more than 120,000 people. That’s a reason to say happy birthday, in every language.

It’s not just tents, pop-ups and RVs at the popular 45-acre campground between North Beach and Burlington High School. This spring, volunteers from the nonprofit YouthBuild Burlington helped city park workers build a small wooden lean-to on the woodsy east side. Once completed, it could become a permanent structure. BYO bug spray.

4. BURLINGTON BIKE PATH The bike ferry will operate this summer after all — welcome news for cyclists who had been told it wouldn’t run this season. Storm-driven wind and waves in May damaged the surface of the popular and scenic Colchester Causeway that juts four miles into Lake Champlain. It also closed the Law Island Railroad Bridge, about three-quarters of a mile out on the causeway, so bikers can’t pedal beyond that. But the Vermont Agency of Transportation will step in to repair the causeway, which is expected to cost $563,000, ferry operator Local Motion announced Tuesday. The ferry is now scheduled to reopen in early July, a bit later than usual. The bike trail has been getting plenty of other maintenance. Fresh yellow lines mark the rebuilt northern stretch of Burlington’s eight-mile bike path, now called the Burlington Greenway by the city parks department. Its entire length is open, with new stairs and walkways connecting the path to neighborhoods and beaches, as well as exercise stations where cyclists can dismount to do abdominal crunches and push-ups. Two more stations will be built this summer, near Leddy Beach and the Northshore condominiums.

6. LAKE STREET EXTENSION PARKING The free waterfront parking near the Andy A_Dog Williams Skatepark was great while it lasted — since the lot was constructed in 2016. In mid-June, the City of Burlington will start charging $1 an hour for a maximum of three hours at the 94 spots along Lake Street Extension. Apparently that was the plan all along: Short-term parking during peak season should bring in revenue and accommodate multiple users per day, according to city officials. The Public Works Commission approved the new fees last month, and kiosks similar to those around the city are being installed. The $1-per-hour rate will be valid from May 1 to October 31. Rates will drop to 40 cents an hour, for up to 10 hours, from November 1 to April 30.

Burlington’s new three-story sailing hub celebrated its grand opening last Saturday. But getting to that point required some tricky navigation. Organizers wrongly believed the project was in a low-income census zone and therefore eligible for federal tax credits. But they read the map wrong. The miscalculation, discovered near the end of last year’s capital campaign, created a $1.7 million shortfall and forced backers to make last-minute appeals for additional private donations. Their efforts paid off. The 22,000-square-foot, roughly $6 million space is gleaming and bright, with room for boat storage, classrooms, showers, a workshop and bathrooms with hot water — unlike the Porta-Potties at the former makeshift location next to the Moran Plant. Most of the third floor is a large covered deck with spectacular views. The fundraising work isn’t done, though. The center still needs cash for new docking and, until it’s built, will continue to use its old boat launch in front of the Moran Plant. Center staffers expect their nicer digs to attract more adults for rentals, races and lessons, along with the many children, high schoolers



The large gash at the top of Depot Street is the future home of a 43-unit, $11 million apartment building currently named for its address, 85 North Avenue. (See story on page 14.) The four-story building at the top of the steep hill will showcase the full panorama of Lake Champlain. Pilings and large steel columns will keep the building, and the hill, in place, says Erik Hoekstra, managing partner at Redstone, which is developing the project. Rents haven’t been announced for apartments in the room-with-aview complex. Construction is under way, and the place is expected to be occupied by next June. 

On the Waterfront « P.29 8. BURLINGTON HARBOR MARINA Local boaters wait up to eight years to lease one of the Queen City’s roughly 265 boat berths and moorings. Tourists who arrive via Lake Champlain often can’t find a spot to tie up — and hence don’t stick around as long as they might. That parking problem motivated developer Jack Wallace to approach the city five years ago about building a private marina on its waterfront land. City voters approved tax increment financing money for the project in 2014, and the city council signed off in 2016. Construction started last week. When it opens next spring, the 160-slip Burlington Harbor Marina will be wedged between the public fishing pier and the U.S. Coast Guard Station. Most of it will be floating: two main gangways that lead to fingers of docking and slips and the main operations building with showers, lockers and a small retail store. At least 64 of the slips are to be parking for “transient” boats that come into Burlington looking for somewhere to tie up. Landside, the small public pavilion area in front of the Burlington Water Department is going to be a marina drop-off area for cars, and a row of


public parking that stretches from the fishing pier to the Moran Plant will become a new public pocket park. But some members of the public aren’t happy. The Burlington fishing pier will be closed all summer — to the dismay of anglers — and until the marina opens next year with new parking behind the Water Department on the north side of Penny Lane. Wallace points out that part of the marina’s docking will be open to the public and promises a “first-class facility.” How first class? At press time, sliprental prices had not been announced.

Need a bike rental? Local Motion has expanded its fleet from 80 to 100 bikes. A half dozen electric bicycles are also available for use, free of charge, in a partnership with Burlington Electric Department. Plus, Vermont’s first public bike share system, which launched this spring, has a station next to Waterfront Park. Ride on!

9. MORAN PLANT Many have tried — and failed — to redevelop Burlington’s former coal-fired electric generating plant, but the hulking brick building remains a stubborn relic of the waterfront’s gritty industrial past. Since the most recent attempt, New Moran, was shelved last fall, there’s no active plan to transform or demolish it. Tearing the building down and cleaning up the site could cost as much as $10 million. In short, it’s not going anywhere. The city does plan to commission a study, possibly this summer, to analyze the cost of securing and stabilizing the edifice. That’s according to Noelle MacKay, who spoke with Seven Days shortly before she left her job last month as director of the Burlington Community & Economic Development Office. She said Memorial Auditorium’s renovation and the downtown mall makeover are CEDO’s priorities right now. Meanwhile, Moran’s fans are still hoping that a new, viable plan emerges. The building has been sitting idle for 32 years, gathering guano and graffiti. Guess it can wait a few more.

Say goodbye to the “fog rocks” that surprise museumgoers with a cooling lake mist on hot summer days. After Labor Day, Burlington’s aquarium is changing up its entryway. The big fish sculpture at the front of the building will be relocated to the back. In its place, designers will install the first phase of an “energy commons” to better engage kids outside the facility. The project eventually will include play structures that illustrate how power is generated and consumed, as well as new outdoor seating on the north side of the building. This fall, Vermont artist Pike Porter is building a bike rack in the shape of oversize lily pads for the site. Less whimsical, but necessary: The museum is getting a paved parking lot and a new storm water system, with signs explaining how it works. Ditto solar panels over a portion of the parking lot that will provide energy for the museum. Seizing every teachable moment.

12. LAKE CHAMPLAIN TRANSPORTATION COMPANY Anyone want to buy a ferry? The head of Lake Champlain Transportation Company, Trey Pecor, is looking to sell the 1947 Valcour, which transports people and cars from Burlington to Port Kent, N.Y. The summer-only, broad-lake route attracts less traffic than the company’s ferry crossings in Grand Isle and Charlotte, but rumors that it might be discontinued aren’t true, Pecor said. For now it will continue, and other boats in the fleet will take over if the Valcour sells. Pecor wants it gone to free up space for recreational boat slips. His company is seeking state and

federal environmental permits to add 70 spots to its current 80, nearly doubling capacity. If all goes well, the first 40 would go in next summer. Pecor’s company occupies six acres on the waterfront for which there have been various development schemes over the years, including plans for a hotel complex. But Pecor said the company would have to find a new home with the same deep-water access, breakwater-protected harbor and shed space to accommodate the heavy equipment now used to repair and maintain the company’s boats. Land ho?

Anglers might be more likely to cast off Perkins Pier this summer since Burlington’s other fishing pier is closed until further notice. The big catch, though, is the Lois McClure. The replica canal schooner is returning to Burlington after an absence of almost two years. The vessel has been busy educating the public about the role of working boats in the Northeast and Midwest. She spent the summer of 2017 plying the Erie Canal as part of the waterway’s bicentennial events. And after wintering over in New York, this summer the McClure is taking part in the GlassBarge Tour celebrating the 150th anniversary of glassmaking in Corning, N.Y. The public is invited to attend a welcomehome party on October 6 that will include glassblowing demonstrations near the pier, information about the role that canal schooners played in industrial development and tours of the canal boat.


Burlington real estate magnate Tony Pomerleau died in February at age 100, but his 66-foot yacht remains. The big white powerboat showed up late last month at the end of Perkins Pier, where it will spend one more summer. While the Pomerleau patriarch won’t be aboard this year to watch Burlington’s Independence Day fireworks show on July 3, his family will gather to pay tribute to the man who liked to make deals and play poker on the vessel he named Paradise Found. Come September, they’ll likely try to sell the Viking yacht, said Tony’s son Ernie. But her size might make it difficult to find a buyer. The self-made Pomerleau wasn’t thinking about resale value when he announced he was buying the boat years ago. At the time, Ernie remembered, “I said, ‘What kind?’ He said, ‘Just big.’” For a similar experience — without the financial investment — check out cruises on the Spirit of Ethan Allen and the smaller, wind-powered Whistling Man Schooner Company’s Friend Ship.



On the Waterfront « P.31 15. BURLINGTON SURF CLUB The private stretch of Queen City shoreline once owned by Blodgett Oven has become the members-only Burlington Surf Club. A skill saw buzzed as workers put the finishing touches on a gated ramp that opens to the Burlington bike path from the fenced east side of the property. Towering cottonwood trees stand near the waterline, which is rocky in spots, sandy in others, and now cleared of the trash and hypodermic needles that had accumulated, especially near an adjacent patch of public waterfront sometimes referred to as Hobo Beach. Blodgett employees are working in the adjacent brick manufacturing buildings — but not for long. This is their last summer at the Lakeside Avenue complex. Russ Scully bought the property last year for $14.3 million. The local businessman, whose enterprises include the Spot on the Dock restaurant on Perkins Pier and the nearby WND&WVS surf gear store on Pine Street, hopes to attract an out-of-state tech company to the spot. Meanwhile, the dude is turning a hunk of beach into a private enclave. It’s not clear whether Burlington residents will line up to suntan at a pay-to-play club on the shore, even one with a casual, surf-shack vibe. The club owners won’t say how many people have signed up for summer memberships, which run from $250 per individual to $750 per family. A day pass is $20. For some, that’s a small price to pay for trained lifeguards and access to all manner of paddleboards and sailboards. For others, it’s a swim raft too far.







16. OAKLEDGE PARK Look for some new playground pieces near the entrance of Burlington’s southernmost park this summer. The Oakledge for All Pop-Up is a sample version of a universal playground project that is accessible to kids with cognitive and physical disabilities. If planners can raise enough money, the full-scale version will be installed in 2019 or 2020. Playtime!

Love Is All Loving Day Vermont brings awareness and celebration of interracial marriages BY RACHEL EL I ZAB E TH J ON E S

CULTURE Sarah Brown and Nicholas Glass






hen Sarah Brown began dating Nicholas Glass in 2009, she had never heard of Loving v. Virginia. After several months together, Brown, a white woman, sought to introduce Glass, who is black, to her family members — and some met her with resistance. “Once I processed the situation, and [my] anger, I really wanted to make something constructive of it,” Brown said, “[so] I started researching the history of interracial relationships in the United States.” Among Brown’s findings was the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, the Virginia couple whose interracial marriage would lead to the June 12, 1967, U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down all existing antimiscegenation laws in the country. The anniversary of that decision has come to be known — aptly — as Loving Day. The name is credited to Ken Tanabe, who inspired the day of celebration and awareness in 2004 with his senior thesis at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Brown, now 32, and Glass, 37, married shortly after moving to Vermont from Washington, D.C., in 2012. In 2014, the Essex Junction couple launched Loving Day Vermont in partnership with Burlington’s Peace & Justice Center. That first year, they organized a Q&Astyle lecture at North End Studios. “We felt isolated and singled out, in a way, so we were looking for a community,” Brown said. While Vermont’s population is staggeringly white (94.6 percent, according to the 2010 census), in D.C., she said, “[we] felt like we were just sort of the norm.” She continued, “We were a little bit naïve when we moved up to Vermont, [thinking,] Oh, it’s this liberal paradise.” Now in its fifth year — and on the 51st anniversary

of the civil rights milestone — Loving Day Vermont will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 12, with a concert and party. Singer-pianist Myra Flynn will perform a “Loving Day Edition” of the University of Vermont Live on the Lawn free concert series, hosted on the outdoor stage at the Dudley H. Davis Center. Zero Gravity Craft Brewery will present DJ Craig Mitchell and offer a Loving Day Ale. One dollar per sale of this special brew (also known as Little Wolf ) will be donated to Loving Day Vermont. Last year, Ferene Paris Meyer, 36, of Burlington, joined Brown as a co-organizer of Loving Day Vermont. Meyer, a woman of color, married Josh Meyer, who is white, in 2007; the couple relocated to Vermont from Massachusetts in early 2012. Though Meyer acknowledged that she and her nowhusband discussed race “from the moment we started dating,” she first learned about Loving v. Virginia in 2016 with the release of director Jeff Nichols’ historical drama Loving. “I had this moment like, Holy shit, this narrative and partnership that I have [was] started on the backs of this couple,” Meyer said. “This was never talked about in history books.” Indeed, in recent years, awareness of the Lovings — and the cultural and political struggles their story represents — seems to be gaining traction. 2017 marked the Supreme Court decision’s 50th anniversary, ushering in a wave of media coverage. Just last week, a memorial was erected to honor the Lovings in their Virginia home of Caroline County. For Catarina Campbell, 28, and Electra Shaw, 30, Loving Day has taken on especially personal significance: June 12 is the anniversary of their first date. As a queer, interracial couple engaged to be married this

October, they have concerns about marriage equality that extend beyond race — particularly, they noted, since the election of Donald Trump. Campbell and Shaw first realized the import of their anniversary at a Loving Day house party that Meyer hosted last year. “It’s been a really beautiful part of our relationship ever since,” said Campbell. For her, Loving Day has contributed to “recognizing love as an act of resistance and an act of liberation in a way that is really meaningful to me.” Jericho writer Phyl Newbeck first learned of the Supreme Court case in 1997, when she saw the 1996 TV movie Mr. and Mrs. Loving. “I thought, What a cool story,” Newbeck said. “I didn’t really learn much about this case in law school.” When she sought to do further research, Newbeck discovered that no book had been written on the Loving case. So, she recalled, “Not knowing what the hell I was doing, I wrote a book on it.” Virginia Hasn’t Always Been for Lovers: Interracial Marriage Bans and the Case of Richard and Mildred Loving was released in 2004 — the same year that Loving Day was born from Tanabe’s thesis work. At the time of Loving v. Virginia, Newbeck explained, 16 states still maintained laws banning interracial marriage. In U.S. history, 41 states at some point had such prohibitions; Vermont was among the nine that never did. “We’ve gotten asked so often, why do we celebrate it in Vermont?” Brown said. As organizers, she and Meyer noted that their biggest challenge is an attitude of “[Loving Day is] great and all, but why should we care?” For many of Vermont’s multiracial families, the significance of Loving Day hits home as they experience


(or anticipate) the challenges of raising their children in predominantly white communities. Brown noted that she’s been asked if she is her daughter’s mom, and Meyer recalled being mistaken for her children’s nanny. In one case, a daycare teacher described Brown’s daughter as “mulatto.” “A lot of this is driven by our desire to create spaces for our children to not be racialized,” said celebrated Burlington poet and UVM English professor Major Jackson, 49. He and Meyer first met at “Black Friday,” a gathering for families raising brown children in Vermont. “I’m very happy that [Loving Day Vermont is] calling attention to a fact of modern love,” said Jackson, whose wife — poet, UVM professor and Green Mountains Review associate editor Didi Jackson — is white. In fact, the couple agreed, it’s not even “modern” love; interracial relationships are part of the history of the country. Still, he and Didi, 48, recalled being asked questions about their relationship that strangers probably would not ask same-race couples — for example, while buying groceries or dining out. Vivian Mason, 71, of Colchester, moved to Vermont in 1997 with the explicit hope of finding a safe place to raise her son, who was born in 1984 from her marriage to a black man. When she lived in California as a white woman with a biracial baby, she said, people often assumed her son was adopted. “It fit their comfort level.” Mason learned about Loving v. Virginia through Loving Day Vermont’s inaugural event in 2014. For her, the event is “not just about [recognizing] racism but




Josh and Ferene Paris Meyer

about parenting and the love we have for our children.” A year earlier, Mason launched the CCTV Center for Media & Democracy series “Conversations on Race Now” with Susan Linskey. “I’ve seen a lot in the 21 years we lived here, and I’ve seen a lot of change,” said Mason. While she acknowledged

that Vermont has been “a wonderful, wonderful place” to raise her son, she also recalled plenty of frustration — and the realization that change is gradual. As part of their ongoing efforts, the organizers of Loving Day Vermont welcome interracial couples and multiracial families who want to reach out and share their stories. “If one person [sees] Loving Day [and] gets the message, that’s one person who didn’t get it before,” Mason said. “Maybe it’s frustrating not to see it happen faster, but [racism] is a deep-rooted sickness, and it’s going to take a long time to change it.” “A lot has changed, and not a lot has changed,” Brown said of the five decades since Loving v. Virginia. “1967 is not long ago at all,” Meyer added. “This lived experience I have every day was only recognized 49 years ago,” she recalled realizing when first watching Loving. “It makes my heart sad, a little.” “What’s horrible,” commented Jackson, “is that we still are living under stereotypes and the racialized thinking. It’s too bad that that occasionally becomes what defines people. “Our love and all the interests that [Didi and I] share are not predicated on difference,” he continued. “In fact, it’s the opposite.” m Contact:

Theater review: Urinetown, Lost Nation Theater B Y A L E X BROW N




The story is briskly told, principally in song. Caldwell B. Cladwell, who has bribed his way to monopoly of the city’s toilets, glows with greed. Penelope Pennywise is the custodian of an especially dank facility in a poor neighborhood. She’s a tough cog in the corporate machine (“If you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go through me”), but her assistant, Bobby Strong, has a softer heart.




Urinetown, music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann, book and lyrics by Greg Kotis, directed by Sarah Jane Schostack, produced by Lost Nation Theater. Through June 17: Thursday through Saturday, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m., at Lost Nation Theater, Montpelier City Hall. $10-41.


When his poor father can’t afford the fee and can no longer hold it in, Officers Lockstock and Barrel collar Old Man Strong by a tree. Bobby watches his father marched off to exile in Urinetown, a tragic fate everyone fears. Bobby reacts as any musical comedy character would. He falls in love with Cladwell’s daughter, Hope, and decides to lead the oppressed in a fight against corruption, greed and power. The people shall pee free. The trick for all the performers is to inflate characters to lampoon size



without bursting from campiness. Director Sarah Jane Schostack knows when to say when, steering the actors toward deadpan emotional commitment so viewers decide when to laugh without a performer begging for a reaction. As Bobby, JP Coletta uses his buoyant romantic charm and strong singing and dancing to mine the depth of comedy in his role. As Hope, Hannah Roberts Brown is a master of comic reaction who earns laughs by carrying naïveté to nearly life-threatening extremes. Kathleen Keenan, as Pennywise, enlivens the show through vocal power and funny physical interactions with other characters. G. Richard Ames and William Pelton play slimeballs who move with the slinky physical ease of men without compunctions. Tim Tavcar highlights the sheer showmanship of Cladwell’s unrelenting avarice. As Lockstock, Nick Wheeler makes an avuncular narrator and a powerful singer. Eric David Miller plays fellow officer Barrel with great physical reactions, from Three Stooges-style knockdowns to a wild, wide-open declaration of love. Madisen Johnson is the urchin Little Sally, who represents the zenith of histrionic cuteness and serves as foil to Lockstock’s deconstruction of theater. Johnson scrapes out every last spoonful in the pathos jar while constantly delighting with bold dance moves and big comic takes.

Lindsay Fuori’s scenic design conveys a battered, ruined world with walls of rusting, corrugated metal and platforms fronted with shredding fabric. The inventive lighting design by Thomas Gunn includes some apocalyptic climaxes, a clever use of police flashers and perfectly hokey spotlights. The choreography by Steven Dean Moore and associate choreographer Taryn Noelle mixes rousing Broadway energy with comic spectacle. Paring down the cast from two dozen to 14 with a lot of role-doubling means the ensemble can’t swarm the stage. But visual gags, such as dance-drumming on water-cooler jugs, help make up for the loss of a big corps. At Thursday’s preview performance, some dance numbers were still short of precision, but the gusto was all there. Johanna Pan’s costume design puts shiny spats on Cladwell and dingy rags on the peasants that cleverly match the set’s drab colors. Bobby (in too-short overalls) and Hope (in class-picture suspender skirt) are dressed like kids to spotlight their innocent optimism. Musical director Mark Howard Hanson plays keyboards and leads a fivepiece band that nimbly skips through musical genres. Musicals rely on the abstraction of song to convey big emotion, but in Urinetown, the uplifting music summons sentiment that usually contrasts with absurdist lyrics. The love ballad “Follow Your Heart” descends into ridiculous biological literalism. A cool jazz number is about murdering the heroine, and the show’s finale, “I See a River,” makes so little sense that the singers visibly strain to convince themselves that a river metaphor can stretch that far. It can’t, but that soaring melody is everybody’s cue that the show is coming to its stirring, silly close. m


on’t be fooled by its title, setting and toilet-plunger ad motif; Urinetown gets no gloomier than any musical comedy’s brief dark before the dawn. If anything, the darkness itself is funny, for this show is about laughing at musicals while enjoying everything they have to offer. Lost Nation Theater’s production serves up big physical humor and sly wit. Urinetown keeps three fountains of humor constantly bubbling. First, it skewers the musical comedy medium, pointing to the hollowness of characters and predictability of plots — including an audience’s nonnegotiable demand for a happy ending. (That wish is both fulfilled and crushed in this clever show.) Second, the show builds a story around the most dystopian dystopia ever: a city in which the corrupt political response to a water shortage is to outlaw private toilets and let a corporation charge citizens for the right to pee in public ones. Satire is dialed to the max — though political theater today really does mean laughing and crying simultaneously. Finally, Urinetown’s music and dance constitute a pastiche of musical comedy history. Specific songs and musical genres are quoted in loving parody. Listen for the Russian peasant sound of Fiddler on the Roof, Kurt Weill’s edge of dissonance in The Threepenny Opera, and the wised-up bitterness of John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Chicago. Look for some Bob Fosse bowler hats, the finger snaps of West Side Story and a tribute to Les Misérables that flies a toilet-paper flag in this neatly staged production. Urinetown won the 2002 Tony awards for Best Score and Best Book, and its satirical power only improves with age. Greg Kotis wrote the book and collaborated on the lyrics with Mark Hollmann, who wrote the music. Together, they exert a mighty heave-ho to tip musical comedy from its wellworn conventions. Their principal tool is breaking the fourth wall with a narrating character, Officer Lockstock, who reminds us of the artificiality of storytelling to enforce a comedic and ironic detachment. Merciless punning and double entendres keep the audience laughing — and always conscious of theatrical artifice.




Flourish farm t-shirts

Cricket Power In Williston, investment propels a sustainable protein farm







lan Newman became a leader of the environmentally friendly household-supplies sector when he started Seventh Generation. The self-described serial entrepreneur repeated that prescient success in the early years of the craft beer movement as cofounder of Magic Hat Brewing. Now Newman, 71, is betting the farm, so to speak, on the future of global livestock agriculture — in a Williston industrial park. The lobby of Flourish Farm’s 2,500-square-foot space on Avenue D feels like the foyer of a fitness club, with bright logos on merchandise and huge posters of athletic people enjoying nature. Few of these visuals trumpet the crop produced here. Flourish Farm raises chirping critters to become food: seasoned whole crickets and a ground-cricket product that married founders Steve and Jen Swanson believe can compete with whey, soy and other protein powders.



“We’re trying to get the bug image out of people’s minds,” explained Jen, a Rutland native. As Ethan de Seife reported in Seven Days in 2015, she and Steve, now both 36, started the company in 2014 as Tomorrow’s Harvest, raising crickets in their home. “We wanted to focus on the product, not so much on the cricket,” Jen continued, “to talk about how it can benefit both the environment and our health.” Crickets, she said, produce “the highest-quality and most sustainable protein. “Our goal is to contribute to the sustainability of our planet by way of our food system,” she declared. “This could change the world if it works.” Newman met the Swansons at two Vermont business startup pitch events over the past couple of years. They won neither but attracted his attention. “I saw two passionate, enthusiastic, smart founders who were probably ahead of their time, which is where I’ve lived most of my life,” Newman said. After several months of discussion, LISTEN IN ON LOCAL FOODIES...

Newman pulled together half a dozen investors with an interest in nutrition and the environment. A first round of $600,000 enabled the couple to move the cricket farm out of their basement in February, and it is expected to power the business through the proof-of-concept phase. Flourish currently sells only directly from the farm and online but will seek retail distribution as it scales up. A facility in Williston processes its cricket snacks and cricket powder. (Flourish also sells plant fertilizer made from cricket poop.) The snacks, flavored with maple, Buffalo seasoning, or garlic and sea salt, are light and crunchy with a slight seaweed aftertaste, reminiscent of biting through the shell of small shrimp. Like shellfish, crickets have exoskeletons containing chitin, which is why Flourish’s products must bear a seafood allergen warning. Newman has taken an active role in Flourish’s marketing and branding, developed by Burlington’s Solidarity of


Unbridled Labour. He also brought on his longtime operations partner, Steve Hood, to help with business management and financials. “I learned years ago that ideas were a dime a dozen,” Newman said. “A lot of people have ideas, but moving them into a fundable and executable business is another thing.” Steve Swanson works full time at Flourish as “the cricket whisperer,” or farmer, while Jen squeezes in her involvement around a job in medical device sales that pays the family bills. Steve was the original driver behind the project. “We were very concerned about climate change already,” he explained. When the couple had the first of their children — now ages 4, 3 and 9 months — “it got real,” he said. Researching online, Steve stumbled across a 173-page report published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2013. Noting the precipitous growth of both global population and hunger, the authors touted insects as a way to deliver nutritious food at low environmental cost, while acknowledging that “people in most Western countries view entomophagy [eating insects] with feelings of disgust.” Steve’s first pitch was to his wife. “He CRICKET POWER

Patrons of Brattleboro’s beloved DOSA KITCHEN food truck — and fans of Indian food in general — will be keen to know that married co-owners NASH PATEL and LEDA SCHEINTAUB have released a cookbook. Dosa Kitchen: Recipes for India’s Favorite Street Food, published by Clarkson Potter, hits shelves this week. The book includes recipes for the dosa, India’s popular fermented rice-lentil crêpe (similar in look and texture to Ethiopian injera), as well as fillings and sides. These range from the traditional — potatoes, aromatic curries — to zany fusion items including pork lard, kimchi, falafel and hot dogs, along with beverages such as strawberry-rose lassi and an array of chutneys and sauces. Scheintaub is a cookbook author by trade; her recent work includes collaborations with Oprah Winfrey, boxer Laila Ali (Muhammad Ali’s daughter) and Claudia Sandoval, winner of Fox’s “MasterChef.” Patel is originally from the south Indian city of Hyderabad. The couple moved to Vermont in 2009 and opened their truck in 2014. At the time, Scheintaub told Seven Days, “Nash had a really good job, but he wanted to do something more creative.” Opening a restaurant was out, but a food truck seemed like a natural fit — especially one serving dosas. While Patel cooked the crêpes frequently at home, they weren’t available elsewhere in Vermont. Once the truck was open,

The space has a concrete floor, high wooden tables, an exposed brick wall and potted succulents that hang from riddling racks, typically used to store Champagne. “It’s got a bit of a communal vibe out here with the stand-up tables,” Zuliani noted. Dedalus will extend its restaurant hours from five to seven days a week by the end of June, he added.

Cricket taco at El Cortijo

Steve Swanson checking on the crickets

don’t contribute to greenhouse gases and produce zero processing waste; the insect is simply dehydrated and offered whole or ground into powder. To mitigate the biggest environmental input, heat, Steve believes that “insect farms of the future will be in extremely well-insulated buildings, ideally powered by solar and wind.” The Swansons hope to develop two lines of crickets, one grain-fed and one fed on food waste. “Crickets are omnivores. The question is, what do they thrive on?” Steve said. He’s successfully fed some on spent brewers’ grain. “That’s when the sustainability argument gets crazy.” Sustainability alone may make a solid case for Americans to jump on the cricketeating bandwagon. But then there’s what everyone calls the yuck factor. “We started this before we had the courage to eat a cricket,” Steve admitted. “We sat down and had maybe a little tequila before we tasted our first one. We understand that hesitation.” “I think, intellectually, there’s really good reason” for people to buy insectbased foods, said Newman. “But nobody buys things for intellectual reasons.” That said, the needle seems to be moving. “Over the last three years, the conversation is completely different,” Steve said. “From ‘You’re a crazy person; get away from me’ to ‘I’ve heard of that. Tell me about it.’” The Flourish team cites the success of the popular Mexican snack chapulines (chile- and garlic-sautéed grasshoppers), launched last season at the Seattle Mariners baseball stadium. A major Canadian supermarket chain recently started selling its own private-label cricket protein powder. Newman believes the youth influence will be critical. “As the younger generation comes of age, they’ll define their

culinary tastes,” he said, noting that, 30 years ago, most Americans wouldn’t touch sushi. “You get a 10-year-old. They think [eating crickets is] the coolest thing since sliced bread. They’re the reason I’m optimistic.” Steve delivered an inaugural customseasoned batch of whole dehydrated crickets to El Cortijo Taqueria y Cantina in Burlington three weeks ago. They were featured in a taco special that sold surprisingly well, said executive chef Tom D’Angelo. “People have come in just to try them.” Restaurants are culinary trendsetters, Steve noted: “They’re more willing to experiment.” El Cortijo is also a natural fit because insects, especially grasshoppers (in the same family as crickets), are integral to Mexican culinary traditions, said Luis Vivanco, professor of anthropology at the University of Vermont, who taught and researched in Oaxaca over a period of eight years. Beyond Mexico, Vivanco said, insects have been an important source of protein for societies all over the world, including Native Americans. But “European culture has always looked at insects [as food] as the last resort,” he acknowledged. “We see insects as pests. We see them as dirty.” In contemporary America, Vivanco sees potential for cricket-based foods to become more culturally acceptable if companies market them, as Flourish does, with an “aura of hipster, alternative, virtuous, doing something good for yourself and the world.” Even so, the Flourish team recognizes that whole crickets are probably not going to be the breakout product. “We’re not expecting people to eat a pile of crickets instead of a steak,” said Steve. “It’s more of an ingredient.”


Cricket powder has the most potential, he believes. With a relatively neutral flavor and fine texture, it can be blended into protein shakes and used to improve the nutritional value of sauces, stews or baked goods. The Swanson family eats it in pesto, tomato sauce and cookies. The Flourish team likes to call their product a “superfood” (for which there is no official definition), based on its protein level of 60 to 70 percent. Other nutrient levels vary depending on what crickets are fed, but they are generally a strong source of calcium, iron and vitamin B12. The Swansons envision a not-too-distant day when packaged cereals and kids’ snacks such as Goldfish crackers will be fortified with cricket protein. Further into the future, Steve said, the goal is to open up the entire edible insect world. “We call crickets the gateway bug,” he said, “but I’m really bullish on ants. They have formic acid; it’s super-citrusy.” Newman is fully on board — until talk turns to cockroaches. “I’m going to draw the line there,” he said. m Contact:

put together a PowerPoint presentation for me,” Jen said. Then he started experimenting in the garage. At the time, the few cricket farms in North America were raising them primarily for pet food or fly-fishing lures. The species, Acheta domesticus, is the same, but crickets raised for human consumption have different feed and record-keeping needs. Research is lacking, because entomologists, Steve noted, are generally “focused on killing insects, not farming them.” The U.S. lacks specific guidelines for insects as human food. Not being considered livestock, they fall under the jurisdiction of the Food & Drug Administration (like seafood), rather than the Department of Agriculture. At the state level, the health department gets involved only when crickets are processed into food — and when, ironically, inspectors would normally penalize facilities for the presence of insects. The growing cricket-farming industry is secretive, Steve said, but Flourish Farm wants to pull back the curtain. “It’s really important that people can come see what the heck this is,” he said. “Education is obviously a huge part of this.” Visitors to the Williston operation can see into the main cricket-raising room through a large window. It will soon be equipped with cricket cams for closeup views into the custom-built cricket “condos.” Eggs hatch in a cozy, silver-lined grow tent kept at 88 degrees. “If crickets don’t work,” Steve joked, “we’ll grow weed.” Crickets are independent as soon as they’re born, he noted, so farmers don’t separate mother and offspring, as most dairy operations do, for example. “That speaks to the morality and ethics of eating insects,” Steve said. The crickets are harvested five weeks into an six-week life cycle that’s accelerated beyond the normal 12- to 16-week cycle by a controlled climate. Placed in a freezer, they fall asleep before dying. “It’s as humane a way to kill animals as there is,” Steve claimed. Flourish Farm has yet to do its own close analysis, but other sources, including the UN report, show that production of cricket protein requires significantly fewer resources than does production of other animal proteins or even many vegetable proteins. According to Entomo Farms, a large Canadian producer of cricket-based food, crickets require onethirteenth of the water and one-twelfth of the feed needed to produce an equal amount of beef protein. Plus, crickets

Back in Time Pastrami with a side of gin at Deli 126 B Y SA L LY POL L AK


’ve eaten hot pastrami sandwiches with a side of coleslaw, a serving of potato salad and a big halfsour pickle. I’ve even had them with French fries, a sacrilege in the Jewish deli world. But, over a lifetime of eating pastrami sandwiches, last Thursday was the first time I paired one with gin. Beefeater. And I highly recommend it. I consumed this combo at Deli 126, which opened in early April on College Street in Burlington. The business itself is an improbable pairing: one part deli/sandwich shop, another part throwback barroom/jazz lounge. This hybrid was born in the mind of owner Jacob Shane, 32. The two parts are connected, as well, by an opaque entryway. When I opened the door on my first trip to the bar, I half expected to see a slab of corned beef and a jar of pickles. Instead, I found a speakeasystyle lounge decorated in deep reds and black and furnished with plush love seats and sets of tables and chairs in intimate arrangements. The space is divided into two areas: a barroom with red leatherette seats at the bar and booth-like sections separated by curtains, and a lounge where jazz musicians play several nights a week. The concept is a Prohibition-era speakeasy. The 1920s and ’30s are represented on the cocktail menu, in the vintage glassware and on the drink lists concealed within books. The cocktail selection notes the source of the drinks, including house originals, and puts virgin drinks under the heading “Temperance.” “We’re trying to do a very specific thing,” said bar general manager Emily Morton, 29. “We want to stay

‘on brand.’ We’re trying to stick to the theme without getting too kitschy with it.” Shane, who grew up in Duxbury, is the former owner of Henry Street Deli. He thought downtown Burlington was missing a couple of things: an affordable sandwich place and a loungy bar where people could enjoy music

and conversation. He’s created both in the space that used to hold Vin Bar & Shop, adding the deli and, in collaboration with Morton, transforming the bar into its stylish new self. “The two go hand in hand,” Shane said. “There weren’t too many establishments focused on a little

rimmed with the necessary fat, and layered with melted Swiss cheese, sliced dill pickles and mustard. My meal was at cocktail hour, about 5 p.m., during the three hours a day — 4 to 7 p.m. — when both deli and bar are open. I ordered at the sandwich counter, popped into the lounge for a seat at the bar, and my sandwich was delivered there. After the deli closes, bar snacks, desserts and sandwiches are available at the bar into the night. Shane said he envisioned a downtown place where people could “eat at an affordable price and walk away full.” He thinks Burlington has been missing that in a sandwich shop since the Mad Hatter closed more than five years ago. The deli is a takeout shop with the option of eating at the bar when their hours coincide. “I love being downtown west of Church Street,”

Na Ghin Jung!

Shane said. “I think it’s the future of Burlington. We love tourism, but we want to support the local crowd, the industry crowd.” It was a local crowd at the bar on my first visit to Deli 126 on May 30. Saxophonist Matt Dolliver, 24, fronted a jazz quartet onstage, and guest musicians were invited to join in. Deli 126 hosts this sort of open-mic jazz set every other Wednesday. In addition, the club presents jazz on Thursday through Saturday nights. I listened to the music while sipping a drink that Morton had recommended: The cocktail is called Autumn Leaves, and the recipe is from the book The How and When. The jazzy mix of Pisco, Drambuie and Campari had a fiery red hue that matched the furnishings. I sank into a corner couch and ate rich chocolate cake along with my cocktail, but I rose to talk to Dolliver after his set. “This place brings a whole new thing to Burlington,” he said. “It’s the first strictly jazz club in town, and it’s just a beautiful atmosphere. It’s got a New York vibe.” Deli 126 serves a New York drink — the egg cream — in two versions: the classic with malted chocolate syrup, whole milk and seltzer, and a boozy alternative with housemade Irish cream in place of the milk. The large ($11) comes in a fluted sundae glass and serves two. I can imagine making a night of it on the maroon couch in the corner, drinking a spiked egg cream made for two and listening to jazz on the west side of town. m


older crowd, where you’re not getting beers poured on you.” Morton, who is from Williston, most recently tended bar at Waterworks Food + Drink in Winooski. At Deli 126, her contributions range from developing the bar menu and pouring drinks to stocking the in-house library with period books such as The How and When: An Authoritative Reference Guide to the Origin, Use and Classification of the World’s Choicest Vintages and Spirits. Morton picked up that 1940 tome at Barge Canal Market on Pine Street and purchased glassware at ReSOURCE and Goodwill. Her full-range cocktail menu emphasizes three spirits: brandy, sherry, and fortified wines such as port and Vermouth. “This is a place to learn about historic spirits,” Morton said. “It’s the old becoming new.” My Beefeater was the featured ingredient in a white Negroni, a twist on the classic. It was the color of lemonlime Gatorade due to the inclusion of Suze, a French liqueur made with gentian root. Though my cocktail looked like a sports drink, it was rather more complex: booze-forward, a little bitter and surprisingly refreshing on a hot afternoon. It was served at the bar before my pastrami sandwich arrived from the deli, and several swallows remained after the food was gone. So, in this unusual pairing, the drink served as both appetizer and dessert. Perhaps also in a throwback move — to the days when sandwiches weren’t the size of footballs — Deli 126 offers a half sandwich for $5 (including tax). I chose this option, which, served on thick-sliced rye, was plenty big. The grilled sandwich was piled high with pastrami,

Word Salad

A lyrically inspired, not-quite-interview with the Decemberists’ Colin Meloy B Y JORD A N AD AMS

SD: Um, indeed. People are excited you’re coming to the Burlington area. CM: Sweet descend this rabble round — the pretty little patter of a seaport town. SD: Well, that’s a fancy way of putting it. CM: Here we come to a turning of a season. SD: Technically, it isn’t summer until Thursday, June 21. But this Saturday is close enough. CM: The summer swells anon. SD: Generally speaking, how would you say things are going as of late? CM: Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything is awful. SD: Wow. Tell me how you really feel! CM: Oh, for once in my life, could something just go — could something just go right? SD: I would think that fronting one of the most popular indie-rock bands of the 21st century must count for something. CM: We know, we know. We belong to ya. We know you built your life around us. SD: Moving on, I was wondering if you could weigh in on a personal problem I’ve been having lately. CM: I alone am the answer. I alone will make wrongs right.





The Decemberists


he Decemberists’ front man and primary songwriter, Colin Meloy, is known for his verbosity. He frequently references arcane folklore and literary figures and concocts richly drawn characters, including wayfarers, peddlers, prostitutes and murderers. The Portland, Ore., group’s narrative songs often include vocabulary words no one has seen or used since preparing for the verbal section of the SATs. For the literarily inclined, the Decemberists are a perfect match. But on the group’s eighth studio album, I’ll Be Your Girl, Meloy decided to scale back his loquacious tendencies. Speaking with the Atlantic’s Spencer Kornhaber in March, Meloy said, “I’ve become a better editor as I’ve gotten older. I look back at some of the early records and sometimes I wonder if that songwriter could have used an editor, getting rid of a verse here and there. “This record was an effort to

challenge myself and create something that felt fresher,” he continued. Beyond the album’s starker, streamlined lyrics, the group amplifies its trademark folkish, indie-rock sound with heavy use of zestful synthesizers and an eye toward dance music. The songwriter even refers to the record as an “apocalyptic dance party.” Meloy is also known for his youngadult novels: the Wildwood Chronicles, a three-book fantasy epic; and the more recent The Whiz Mob and the Grenadine Kid, a caper involving a cadre of child thieves. The Decemberists perform on Saturday, June 9, at the Shelburne Museum. M. Ward opens. After two failed attempts to interview Meloy — by phone and through email — Seven Days was ultimately unable to connect with him. We would have asked him about the new album’s subtle political messaging, the band’s cameo appearance on



NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” and how much peril young readers can handle. Since we’re still excited about his group’s impending show, we decided to ask Meloy some different questions ... and answer them by repurposing some of his lyrics. SEVEN DAYS: Greetings, Colin! You’re coming to Vermont at the perfect time of year. Colin Meloy: A barony of ivy in the trees, expanding out its empire by degrees. And all the branches burst a’bloom.

SD: Cool, cool. There’s this person I know who makes me want to set my hair on fire. Everything they do and say just drives me bananas. We have a lot of friends in common, and I worry that if I say something to them about their behavior and attitude, there could be major fallout in my circle of friends. What do I do? CM: Cut him up, boy. You’ve got to cut him up, boy. He’s a wicked disgrace, and he said it to your face. You better cut him up, boy. Take him by the teeth. Get him down on his knees with your hands all shaking. That’ll teach him how to take it. Gotta cut him up, boy. SD: Whoa. First of all, I didn’t say it was a he. Second, isn’t that, like, incredibly harsh? Can you recommend a more peaceful approach? CM: If you calm and let me pass, you may render me a wreck when I come WORD SALAD

On Wednesday, May 30, ticketing website Ticketfly shut itself down amid a potential data breach. Initially labeled with the vague and ominous descriptor “cyber incident,” we now know that personal information from approximately 26 million customers was “compromised” — including my own. Using the website, I discovered that there’s a good chance I am one of the millions of concertgoers whose name, address, email address and/or phone number has been hacked. Luckily, as the financial information website MarketWatch points out, there’s no evidence that credit card or password info was compromised. Ticketfly went partially back online on Sunday, June 3, and ticket sales have resumed. But for the preceding four days, websites of venues from across the country were shut down or unable to process online ticket sales, including South Burlington nightclub Higher Ground, as well as Nectar’s and Club Metronome in Burlington. If you were having trouble purchasing tickets and had no idea what the hell was going on, now you know. On Sunday, Higher Ground posted the following message on its Facebook page: “Ticket links for all events (including offsite shows at [the Shelburne Museum] and Burlington Waterfront) are back up and running. Our website, however, is still down. We will continue to push out ticket links through our social media channels. Thanks for sticking with us on this.” As of press time, online tickets were up and running for Higher Ground, Nectar’s, Metronome and other known Ticketfly venues in various national markets.

REVIEW this Myra Flynn, Never Mind the Mourning (SELF-RELEASED, CD, DIGITAL DOWNLOAD)

On her latest album, Never Mind the Mourning, Myra Flynn teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Jared Lee Gosselin. As he’s done with superstars Macy Gray, Corinne Bailey Rae, India.Arie and others, Gosselin helped the Vermont- and Los Angelesbased Flynn ratchet up her soulful pop tendencies. The singer-songwriter’s deep dive into radio readiness obscures the album’s dark subject matter — witness track names such as “Mourning Time” and “Hostage,” which impart a sense of foreboding. To combat demons relating to the dissolution of an abusive relationship, Flynn disguises hardcore emotional themes with the musical and production equivalents of rainbow sprinkles and cherry syrup. After all, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. More chameleonic than ever, Flynn taps into many flavors: iced-out trap,

Mal Maïz, Historia de un Inmigrante

Cumbia” is an instrumental reverie with some laid-back horn lines that marches into “Clandestino,” where things really get started. With its tightly conceived arrangements, the EP hits you like an album. Sandoval’s outfit turns on a dime, but its flash always sounds organic. On “Fantasma,” Sandoval marries form and function, integrating a more urban, radio-pop feel with meditations on how cities affect traditions — and identity itself. When the band gets cooking here, it sounds like Ozomatli. The most overtly pop fare is “Producto de la Mente,” a crackling reggaeton anthem about re-creating yourself. What makes Sandoval’s story so relatable is his forward, open vision: He is wrestling with how to be a world citizen while staying true to his roots. The result is like a welcoming party sent from a better future. The album closes with “Huru Huru,” an invocation over percussion that Sandoval calls “a mantra of protection.” The drums do most of the talking, and it

all washes out into the peace of the jungle again. At every turn, Historia de un Inmigrante sounds impeccable. That quality is due to Sandoval’s creative vision, of course, but producer/engineer Joel Denizot was equally essential. An experienced console dog and music educator, Denizot cut his teeth with the cutting-edge world-music label Cumbancha. His deft touch makes every track here shine. Maybe it’s just my age showing, but listening to Historia de un Inmigrante, it’s hard not to be reminded of another BTV immigrant with high-energy live shows and politically charged songwriting: Ukrainian transplant Eugene Hütz, who went on to do pretty big things with his gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello. There’s no telling how grandiose Sandoval’s ambitions are. But there’s also no reason his globe-spanning journey would stop at Radio Bean. The man has juice. Historia de un Inmigrante is available at CD Baby. Mal Maïz perform on Friday, June 8, at the Top Block Stage on the Church Street Marketplace as part of the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival.


06.06.18-06.13.18 SEVEN DAYS

Mal Maïz are an Afro-Caribbean ensemble with a serious pedigree and the chops to match. They emerged from the longrunning Latin Sessions at Burlington’s Radio Bean, a Monday residency led by Costa Rican inmigrante Maiz Vargas Sandoval. A bandleader in the traditional sense, the multiinstrumentalist handles all the arrangements and teaches his ensemble all the parts. His band’s debut, Historia de un Inmigrante, is an autobiography told in archetypes. Sandoval mines his personal past for universal truths, and the album is a compelling journey. It is deliberately paced, tracing an arc in seven songs with a gorgeous bed of jungle and forest sounds threading between them. Much of this story is told purely through music. Opening track “Country

“Nobody’s Business,” a throwback to dancehall reggae’s early ’00s Top 40 takeover, is so tight and pitch-perfect that you could easily mistake it for a forgotten Sean Paul track from 2003. It even features Rayvon — the same dude who famously sings the hook on Shaggy’s monster hit “Angel.” But Flynn sings the hook here, and her vocals achieve a lovely shade of glassy detachment heard nowhere else on the album. However, the song feels a bit disconnected from the rest. Perhaps it should’ve been a standalone single. Other standouts include the horn-laden “Shut Up and Kiss Me”; the sensual, R&Btinged “Roses”; and the rockin’ “Little Murder.” It’s arguably Flynn’s best album and, with its 10 sonically diverse tracks, provides 10 potential avenues for future records, should she decide to explore any of them exclusively. Never Mind the Mourning is available at CD Baby. Flynn performs several times this week, including Saturday, June 9, at Shelburne Vineyard; Tuesday, June 12, at the University of Vermont’s Loving Day event at the Dudley H. Davis Center; and multiple appearances at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. Visit for a full schedule.



acoustically driven adult contempo, dancehall reggae, bubblegum pop and, most frequently, neo-soul. She’s now at her most accessible: Each of her shades feels fully locked in and uncompromising. And her pipes have never sounded more limber. “Color Me Love” and “Big Girl Heart” are symbiotic first and second tracks, respectively. The acoustic-guitardriven opener recalls the artist’s yearning, singersongwriter-y back catalog, while the second, a piano ballad with turbulent beats, adds a bit more oomph. Thematically, the songs tell a two-part story of courage followed by uncertainty. Springy piano chords and stark percussion open the rollicking “Bye Bye Baby.” Multi-tracked background vocals cushion Flynn’s sassy dismissal of a malevolent person. Trap beats, wonky dubstep bass and unearthly shrieks converge on the exceptional “Hostage.” Crisscrossing background vocals profusely swarm around Flynn’s demoralized hook: “I’ve been good for you / I’ve got my hands up / Better hold me hostage / Or don’t hold me at all.”

“Young’s Rubbish Removal”

66 ART





f no one had shown up for a recent opening night reception at Studio Place Arts in Barre, the third-floor gallery would still have had a crowd: the 30 people looking out from the confines of their frames. The subjects of Jack Rowell’s photographs on exhibit are so animated that one suspects they converse with one another — or even get rowdy — after SPA closes for the night. “Jack Rowell, Cultural Documentarian: Portraits of Vermont People and Other Wildlife” is the Braintree photographer’s first solo exhibit in a decade, spanning more than four decades of his career. “It’s hard work putting [an exhibit] together. I do it all myself, from printing to framing,” Rowell told Seven Days. Maybe it’s also been so long because he can be as difficult to catch as a buttered catamount. Rowell travels around the state capturing rural life on camera, from the annual Lake Champlain International Father’s Day Fishing Derby to Vermont Outdoors Woman Doe Camp to a mix of musicians, politicians, farmers and tradespeople. This exhibit reveals — and revels in — the spectrum of his findings. A visual artist’s career creates a legacy of images that can also serve as a retrospective of that artist’s own life. Rowell’s photographs do more, recording the legacy of a culture of individuals working in Vermont. Many of his subjects are engaged in artistic pursuits, but others labor in fields such as sanitation or agriculture. A fifth-generation Vermonter from Tunbridge, Rowell is a self-described cultural documentarian. That attribution is part tongue-in-cheek and part on the money. In the SPA exhibit, the progression from his early Tunbridge photographs of the 1970s to images of the present demonstrates a shift from location-based to



“Kristina Stykos”

The Eyes Have It Jack Rowell, Studio Place Arts BY MEG BRAZ I L L

studio photographs (with some exceptions). The studio images trade surrounding subject matter and context for an intense focus on the subject. Case in point: Rowell’s 2005 “Construction Worker” includes a dump truck and crane on a demolition site. A decade later, his color photo of artist and professional stone carver Heather Milne Ritchie is a nude portrait shot in his studio. Ritchie poses holding a length of etched granite, the only clue to her occupation. Rowell’s photographs don’t just sing; they bleed. To be sure, some images exude joy, serenity or outright glee, but Rowell always captures a deep emotional connection and reflects it back to the viewer. For him, the eyes really are the windows to the soul. He’s not one to stick to a single technique; what may have worked with one subject may not with another. Take his 2015 black-and-white studio portrait of singer-songwriter Kristina Stykos, hunched over her instrument, her hat and hair obscuring most of her face. We can’t read her expression, but her posture, the tilt of her head and the position of her hands convey her passion for music.

“Dough Boys” is quite the opposite. In this circa 1990 image taken outdoors at the Tunbridge World’s Fair, far from the confines of a studio, the fried-dough vendor provides an eloquent backdrop. Here, two men in the foreground are clearly enjoying the tastes of the fair. The exhibition includes images shot with both 35mm film and digital cameras, though Rowell now uses digital exclusively. In a conversation, the photographer scoffed at purists who view darkroom processing as more “valid.” There’s a lingering misconception about the quality of digital prints, he noted. In the medium’s infancy, they were created with low-quality ink-jet printers. Now, pigment ink and high-quality cottonrag paper make prints that will outlast silver gelatin. “I’ve had to do my own processing,” Rowell said, “so I learned the nuances.” He currently uses a Nikon D810 digital camera and Adobe Camera RAW. “Formerly, for film,” Rowell said, “I used Canon and Nikon 35mm, Mamiya … medium format and Sinar [large format].” Except for a short time after high school, Rowell has always worked as

a photographer. He’s also something of an expert in networking, making connections among people who might otherwise never meet. He could have a sideline in politics or selling cars if he didn’t prefer to work alone. Rowell said he picks his subjects about half of the time; the rest of the time, they pick him. “Basically, I’m known as a black-andwhite portrait photographer,” he said, though his reputation for color work is growing. “I shoot product and editorial. If you don’t have a trust fund, it’s best not to specialize.” In 2010, for the show “The Hale Street Gang,” Rowell photographed 12 elderly participants in a memoirwriting workshop run by Sara Tucker at the Greater Randolph Senior Center. Rowell’s large-scale, black-and-white photographs evoke their rich life stories, as revealed through excerpts from their memoirs. The exhibition traveled around the state. The SPA show includes seven photographs from that project of Margaret Egerton, which Rowell considers a single work. The photographer was on hand opening night to add comments, tell a


few stories and, of course, take more photos. His sister also wielded a camera to capture Rowell in action, bearhugging old friends and making new ones in the throng of visitors. Those included more than a few of the subjects of Rowell’s photographs, who had new photos taken alongside their images on exhibit. “Portraits of Vermont People and Other Wildlife” is a veritable who’s who of interesting individuals, though they’re not necessarily widely

recognized. One exception is his iconic photograph of the late Fred Tuttle, dairy farmer, star of John O’Brien’s indie film Man With a Plan and 1998 candidate for the U.S. Senate. In a photo nearby, two contestants for Miss Vermont are poised to kiss a fish. For Rowell, photography is much more than simply pushing a shutter. “I learn something new every time I shoot,” he said. In turn, viewers may learn something new by looking at his images. m

movies Adrift ★★


hailene Woodley stars in this survival saga that’s based on true-butscrewed-with events. Adrift was adapted from the 2002 book Red Sky in Mourning: The True Story of a Woman’s Courage and Survival at Sea by Tami Oldham Ashcraft. Fun fact: Interviewed by the Chicago Tribune shortly after its publication, Ashcraft made a striking comment about, of all things, the movie adaptation of Sebastian Junger’s book The Perfect Storm. “There wasn’t enough spray,” she declared with regard to its depiction of a vessel contending with powerful winds, “and the wall of water was a little hokey.” Coincidentally, this adaptation of her account from director Baltasar Kormákur (Everest) is hokey, too. Hopelessly so. And guess what? At the height of the storm that sucks the pleasure out of Ashcraft’s cruise, what do we spy towering high over her craft? Yup, an almost identical CGI wall of water. The ho-hum computer animation, however, is the least of this picture’s problems. The Lifetime-level script by Aaron and Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith should have been tossed overboard long be-


WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? The creators of Woodley’s latest set a course for sappiness and exploitation.

fore cameras rolled. The romantic backstory is terminally saccharine, and the flashbackflash-forward scrambling with the source material is likelier to induce viewer seasickness than the giant waves rocking the boat. Woodley plays Tami as a California girl whose sole goal in life appears to be getting and staying as far from home as possible. We meet her in Tahiti, where she surfs and does odd jobs at a marina in patented free-spirit fashion. Until Sam Claflin drops anchor as Richard Sharp, an English fellow traveler and hunk who built his own boat. Faster than you can say Message in a Bottle, the two are head-over-halyards in love and planning a voyage around the world. But a chance encounter sets their lives on a different course. A British couple makes Richard an offer he can’t refuse: to sail their yacht 4,000 miles back to San Diego. The Hazana was a floating palace equipped with every conceivable navigation, emergencypositioning and communication device. And yet, the movie suggests, the veteran mariners steered straight into 1983’s Hurricane Raymond, somehow not catching wind of the Category 4 storm until they were inside it. Routine typhoon effects ensue. When she comes to, Tami discovers her man overboard, rescues him, tends to his debilitating

wounds and feeds him globs of Skippy with her fingers while giggling, “How much do you love me right now?” The supply of peanut butter — and giggles — dwindles steadily over 41 days as Tami captains the crippled craft toward what she hopes is Hawaii. As deep-sea dramas go, Adrift ranks with the not-so-great. Beside it, Jaws: The Revenge looks like Titanic. The filmmakers clearly were shooting for a cross between All Is Lost and the movie version of Wild, Cheryl Strayed’s celebration of female selfdependence, but missed the mark by a nautical mile. Chief among the shortcomings: cloyingly cute dialogue, a lack of chemistry between

the leads and a narrative structure all but designed to sap the story of suspense. More egregious, though, is Kormákur’s unethical deployment of the surprise twist. Let’s remember, this is the story of a reallife tragedy. Nobody has the right to turn it into the entertainment equivalent of a jackin-the-box for a quick buck. There’s simply no possible justification for the liberties taken — which doesn’t mean the director hasn’t tried to justify them. I’m being deliberately detail-free to avoid spoilers. Suffice it to say, the filmmaker sinks to shameful depths. Someone should revoke his artistic license. RI C K KI S O N AK





RBG ★★★★


admit, I don’t much like inspirational biopics or their factual counterparts, inspirational biodocs. Where some viewers enjoy basking in the admirable qualities of a real-life hero or heroine, I’d always prefer just to see a good story on screen. So I’m pleased to report that RBG, a documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West, has a fine story to go with its dose of civics-class uplift. Cohen and West open with right-wing sound bites decrying the progressive-minded Ginsburg as “a zombie” and “un-American.” Then they show us the justice herself: an 85-year-old dynamo lifting tiny weights at the gym with an expression of steely-eyed determination. While she doesn’t play selfconsciously to the camera, Ginsburg has an incisive voice and a flair for the subtle zinger that make her a great subject. The audience is riveted immediately. The filmmakers embrace traditional biography format, tracing Ginsburg’s evolution from child of immigrants to Harvard Law School student to pioneering feminist lawyer. Photos and home-movie snippets show us a radiant, driven young woman whose rise from Brooklyn to the bench could only, as Ginsburg herself puts it, have happened in America. Clips from Ginsburg’s 1993 confirmation hearings serve as a continuing thread, allowing her to narrate some of her story herself.

POETIC JUSTICE Ginsburg is magnetic in this documentary about her rise from humble beginnings to the Supreme Court to online celebrity.

Most illuminating — and, to younger viewers, educational — are the segments dealing with the gender-discrimination cases that Ginsburg argued before the Supreme Court in the 1970s, when she directed the American Civil Liberty Union’s Women’s Rights Project. Interviews with the plaintiffs — a female service member denied a housing allowance for her husband; a young widower refused survivor benefits that would have helped him care for his child — give human faces to the effects of everyday discrimination.

We also learn about Ginsburg’s stepwise, strategic approach to ending those gender barriers, which may surprise those who see her as a firebrand. Using a simple graphic, Cohen and West show how the changing ideological make-up of the Supreme Court transformed Ginsburg from a centrist in the 1990s into the “Great Dissenter” of today. RBG becomes a fluffier portrait toward the end, when it focuses on the millennial fans who have turned the justice into a meme (“Notorious RBG”), rather than on the

scathing dissents that gained her that reputation. We never learn much about the evolution of Ginsburg’s thought over the decades — and this is clearly a woman who does a lot of thinking (one of her nearly lifelong habits is laboring at her desk until 4 a.m.). But the filmmakers fill in the gaps in their portrait with endearing color. We learn about the steadfast support Ginsburg received from her husband, Marty; about her close friendship with late conservative colleague Antonin Scalia; about her passion for the opera. True, maybe we don’t need to see the justice reacting multiple times to Kate McKinnon’s broad impersonation of her on “Saturday Night Live,” but her bemusement is priceless. Fascinating, though never directly addressed, is the contrast between Ginsburg’s reserved self-assurance and the gushy, selfconscious demeanor of many of her young enthusiasts. When her law-student granddaughter suggests that Ginsburg read her fan mail for a “confidence boost,” one gets the sense that this octogenarian, who remembers how it felt to be one of only nine female students in a law school class, solved her self-esteem problems a while ago, because she had to. Will a new generation of activists grow into the same confidence? If nothing else, RBG serves as an inspiration. MARGO T HARRI S O N

Between 1967 and 1973, NASA used a series of Saturn V rockets to deliver six groups of American astronauts to the moon. Each massive vehicle weighed about 6.5 million pounds. The initial thrust required to launch it was tremendous. Gas mileage was seven inches per gallon. Only later, after the rocket flew farther from the grip of Earth’s gravity, did the fuel economy improve. I’m guessing that in your own life, you may be experiencing something like that seven-inches-per-gallon feeling right now. But I guarantee that you won’t have to push this hard for long.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Promise me that you won’t disrespect, demean or neglect

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Mars, the planet that rules animal vitality and instinctual enthusiasm, will cruise through your astrological House of Synergy for much of the next five months. That’s why I’ve concluded that between now and mid November, your experience of togetherness can and should reach peak expression. Do you want intimacy to be robust and intense, sometimes bordering on rambunctious? It will be if you want it to be. Adventures in collaboration will invite you to wander out to the frontiers of your understanding about how relationships work best. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Which astrological sign laughs hardest and longest and most frequently? I’m inclined to speculate that Sagittarius deserves the crown, with Leo and Gemini fighting it out for second place. But having said that, I suspect that in the coming weeks you Leos could rocket to the top of the chart, vaulting past Sagittarians. Not only are you likely to find everything funnier than usual; I bet you will also encounter more than the usual number of authentically humorous and amusing experiences. (P.S. I hope you won’t cling too fiercely to your dignity, because that would interfere with your full enjoyment of the cathartic cosmic gift.) VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, a little extra egotism might be healthy for you right now. A surge of super confidence would boost your competence; it would also fine-tune your physical well-being and attract an opportunity that might not otherwise find its way to you. So, for example, consider the possibility of renting a billboard on which you put a giant photo of yourself with a tally of your

accomplishments and a list of your demands. The cosmos and I won’t have any problem with you bragging more than usual or asking for more goodies than you’re usually content with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The coming weeks will be a favorable time for happy endings to sad stories and for the emergence of efficient solutions to convoluted riddles. I bet it will also be a phase when you can perform some seemingly clumsy magic that dispatches a batch of awkward karma. Hooray! Hallelujah! Praise Goo! But now listen to my admonition, Libra: The coming weeks won’t be a good time to toss and turn in your bed all night long thinking about what you might have done differently in the month of May. Honor the past by letting it go. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Dear Dr. Astrology: In the past four weeks, I have washed all 18 of my underpants four times. Without exception, every single time, each item has been inside out at the end of the wash cycle. This is despite the fact that most of them were not inside out when I threw them in the machine. Does this weird anomaly have some astrological explanation? —Upside-Down Scorpio.” Dear Scorpio: Yes. Lately your planetary omens have been rife with reversals, inversions, flip-flops and switchovers. Your underpants situation is a symptom of the bigger forces at work. Don’t worry about those bigger forces, though. Ultimately, I think you’ll be glad for the renewal that will emerge from the various turnabouts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As I sat

down to meditate on your horoscope, a hummingbird flew in my open window. Scrambling to herd it safely back outside, I knocked my iPad on the floor, which somehow caused it to open a link to a YouTube video of an episode of the TV game show “Wheel of Fortune,” where the hostess, Vanna White, garbed in a long red gown, revealed that the word puzzle solution was USE IT OR LOSE IT. So what does this omen mean? Maybe this: You’ll be surprised by a more-or-less delightful interruption that compels you to realize that you had better start taking greater advantage of

a gift or blessing that you’ve been lazy or slow to capitalize on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re in a phase when you’ll be smart to bring more light and liveliness into the work you do. To spur your efforts, I offer the following provocations. 1. “When I work, I relax. Doing nothing makes me tired.” —Pablo Picasso. 2. “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.” —Ann Landers. 3. “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” —Aristotle. 4. “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” —Scott Adams. 5. “Working hard and working smart can sometimes be two different things.” —Byron Dorgan. 6. “Don’t stay in bed unless you can make money in bed.” —George Burns. 7. “Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.” —Mark Twain. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “There isn’t

enough of anything as long as we live,” said poet and short-story writer Raymond Carver. “But at intervals a sweetness appears and, given a chance, prevails.” My reading of the astrological omens suggests that the current phase of your cycle is one of those intervals, Aquarius. In light of this grace period, I have some advice for you, courtesy of author Anne Lamott: “You weren’t born a person of cringe and contraction. You were born as energy, as life, made of the same stuff as stars, blossoms, breezes. You learned contraction to survive, but that was then.” Surrender to the sweetness, dear Aquarius.


(Feb. 19-March 20): Between you and your potential new power spot is an imaginary, 10-foot-high electrified fence. It’s composed of your least charitable thoughts about yourself and your rigid beliefs about what’s impossible for you to accomplish. Is there anything you can do to deal with this inconvenient illusion? I recommend that you call on Mickey Rat, the cartoon superhero in your dreams who knows the difference between destructive destruction and creative destruction. Maybe as he demonstrates how enjoyable it could be to tear down the fence, you’ll be inspired to join in the fun.


ARIES (March 21-April 19): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you would be wise to ruffle and revise your relationship with time. It would be healthy for you to gain more freedom from its relentless demands, to declare at least some independence from its oppressive hold on you, to elude its push to impinge on every move you make. Here’s a ritual you could do to spur your imagination: Smash a timepiece. I mean that literally. Go to the store and invest $20 in a hammer and alarm clock. Take them home and vociferously apply the hammer to the clock in a holy gesture of pure, righteous chastisement. Who knows? This bold protest might trigger some novel ideas about how to slip free from the imperatives of time for a few stolen hours each week.

your precious body in the coming weeks. Promise me that you will treat it with tender compassion and thoughtful nurturing. Give it deep breaths, pure water, healthy and delicious food, sweet sleep, enjoyable exercise, and reverential sex. Such veneration is always recommended, of course — but it’s especially crucial for you to attend to this noble work during the next four weeks. It’s time to renew and revitalize your commitment to your soft, warm animal self.

BLACK MALE SEEKS FUN Handsome, professional black male seeks FWB. Will be relocating at the end of 2018, so not looking for serious relationship. Any race or marital status welcome. Prefer 30+, but 21+ welcome. Drop me a line, and let’s meet up! BlackBullVT, 48

For relationships, dates and flirts:

WOMEN Seeking MEN VIVACIOUS, PLAYFUL AND CURIOUS Honestly not sure what I am looking for. I placed an I-Spy ad and thought some kind of profile would be appropriate. C12B57, 61

LOOKING FOR TANGENTIAL PARTNERS I’m very intelligent, resourceful and manipulative. TristaNH69, 53, l FIT, FUNNY, CURIOUS Straight-ish couple looking for some new experiences with someone new. TannyB, 42 AWESOME TEACHER SEEKING NEXT CHAPTER Down-to-earth, sincere, great sense of humor, kind. Volunteer, advocate for vets. Ethical, full of surprise — such as, this teacher is good with a .22 rifle! Would like to meet a downto-earth man who enjoys history, founding fathers, rides through New Hampshire and Vermont. I believe mutual chemistry is sparked by a sharp mind. Dog lover. sarahsmile, 51, l DADDY WANTED I have a huge Daddy kink, and I’m looking for a Daddy to play with. 40-plus, and I hope you like big girls. Daddysgirl, 29





FAT LADY SEEKING COSTCO MEMBER I’m really just looking for someone with a Costco membership so I can walk in the door with you and head over to its food court for some delicious chow. But if our relationship turns into something more than that, I guess that’s all right. churrofan, 32 SHY GIRL LOOKING FOR FUN I was in a long-term relationship that had to end, but now I’m looking for something much more casual. I’m a bit shy, which is why I am on here instead of attempting to talk to new people in person. BonnieBunnie, 30 COUNTRY AT HEART AND FREE I’m looking for a good guy who likes to eat, hang out, go fishing and camping, and enjoys my company. I love to please my man and make him happy. Looking for the same. I grew up in the Burlington area and am of French and German descent. Oldergal, 63 THRILLS AND GIGGLES I am looking for distraction that includes fun, giggles, physical release and good company that doesn’t want too much. DBhastime, 48 MUSIC FOR MECHANICS 34 New to the area. Seeking good company. I love rock and roll. Love my job, but dream of starting a farm-to-table community space. Health conscious. Care a lot about environment and lifestyle. I have tons of interests and passions. Intelligent. Love teaching, learning and creating. Honest. No room for emotional immaturity or games. Friends first. TankGirl, 34, l

I’VE BEEN CALLED HOT LATELY I am becoming an electrician and in the process have learned I am “hot.” Being somewhat of an intellectual, this comes as a bit of a shock (figuratively, fortunately), but I think perhaps now is the time for romance. I am a romantic and a pagan (consensual adult sex is good/sacred), so good luck, and may the force be with you. TallGalElectrician, 40, l

OUTGOING, HONEST, KIND AND CURIOUS I value communication and enjoy people who are curious, open and selfaware. Travel and exploring the world are passions! My meditation practice grounds me and keeps me connected to my heart. I enjoy being active and fit. I miss having a loving partner to share my life with, so if my profile resonates with you, let me know. Ontheroad, 59, l

SPRINGTIME AT LAST! I can appreciate your kindness, compassion and sense of humor. Being quirky and goofy is definitely acceptable. :) While I enjoy volunteering in the community and going to events, I also enjoy time alone to work on projects, read and make art. Join me for some traveling, biking, kayaking or live music. BirdsEyeView, 30, l

FEISTY YOGA GIRL EXPANDING CONNECTIONS I am hesitantly reentering the dating world. Looking for a patient, kind, humorous and fun-loving companion to enjoy movies, music, walks and bike rides. FlannelGirl, 62, l

FRIENDS PLUS SOME? Although I’m very interested in finding a partner to share my time with, I’m also very interested in having some of my sexual needs met, too. It’s been years since I’ve had a partner perform oral sex on me. I’m interested in meeting new people. If there’s a sexual connection, even better. Itsmyturn4once, 36, l

INTELLECTUAL, ATHLETIC, AMBITIOUS, CHILL, DESIRABLE I’m a very chill, even-keeled, exotic, welltraveled, athletic, down-to-earth, funny, talented, ambitious guy. I’m looking for a girl who is authentic, confident, smart, cute, curvy, fit, chill, down-toearth, ambitious, funny, witty — some combination of that. And not about games, drama or BS. Sometimes you only truly know what you’re looking for when you meet. Shar802boy_88, 30, l

UNAPOLOGETICALLY ME Me = I’m just me. You = You’re just you. Let’s just meet and see how it goes! smc444, 57, l TEXAS GAL Hardworking, fun, athletic, honest, integrity, attractive, Hispanic, loving. Make me your No. 1. Texasgal, 55, l

LANTMAN’S 5/29 Saw you in the aisles and in line at the 14 or less checkout. You had a tattoo on your left inner wrist and a Coke in your right hand. Eye contact was made a couple of times, and it felt nice. When: Tuesday, May 29, 2018. Where: Lantman’s IGA, Hinesburg. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914379 SAND TIME You’re a catdog, and I’m a man. We touched hooves, and it was magical. Happy anniversary! When: Wednesday, May 30, 2018. Where: Oakledge. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914378 SHINING, HARDWORKING BEAUTY I was running when you waved to me. You were carrying long boxes, had red hair tied up and a tattoo on you left upper arm/shoulder. You waved to me. I waved back to you. You looked back, then I looked back, and when I looked back again, you were gone. I’ll now start running on your side of the street! When: Thursday, May 31, 2018. Where: N. Winooski Ave. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914377





SUP AT WRIGHTSVILLE, MAY 30 You: black bikini under black shorts, loading your board on to your black Subie. I asked if you’d been to the falls. You said you hadn’t. I was eager to get on the water, then realized I missed an opportunity. Me: gray shorts, tan shirt and a white boat. Perhaps next time we can paddle together. When: Wednesday, May 30, 2018. Where: Wrightsville Reservoir. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914376 OCHA THAI, MAY 4 I spy a very good-looking divorced (??) dad with son and daughter. I was on the bench waiting for takeout. Your salacious smile is stuck in my head. Spectacular. I would love to see it again and get to know you better. When: Friday, May 4, 2018. Where: Ocha Thai. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914375 PERSISTENT, RESILIENT SKATER AT PARK You’re an amazing skater and were pushing yourself despite a gnarly fall! You were mostly shirtless, orange shades, short dirty-blond hair and Carhartts? I didn’t want to mess up your flow by introducing myself. I was sitting and watching. I have long dirty-blond hair and was wearing a black baseball cap and space leggings, enjoying the scenery. Let me know if you wanna hang! When: Monday, May 28, 2018. Where: skate park. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914374 REDHEAD WITH DACHSHUND ON BICYCLE Waiting at a crosswalk. You had a little dachshund dog that I patted. I asked if he could keep up with the bike, and you said the point was to tire him out. I couldn’t stop thinking about you all day. Had to write this. I want to meet you for a coffee or a drink. When: Tuesday, May 29, 2018. Where: corner of State and Main, Montpelier. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914373

SAME BIRTHDAY AND CAR SOLD You and I had a business transaction in Montpelier and discovered we had the same birthday. You happen to be a lady I can’t stop thinking about. We discussed Doc Martens. Your eyes are so striking, I feel like I could stare into them for a day. Anyway, how about we start with a coffee in Stowe? When: Sunday, May 20, 2018. Where: Berlin. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914372 CITY MARKET WIT We worked on a play together a couple years back and ran into each other a few days ago. Would you have any interest in getting tea? When: Saturday, May 19, 2018. Where: City Market. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914371 INCONVENIENCED BUS RIDERS We met walking from Shelburne Road to Pine Street because the bus driver detoured due to roadwork.

Me: Woman. #914370 CLOSE ENCOUNTERS We encounter one another almost daily, and we seem to have quite a bit in common.

If you figure this out, and you do feel it, please find a way to let me know. When: Thursday, May 24, 2018. Where: around. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914368 AT THE BAR AFTER WORK We both had a drink after our shift. I reminded you to clock out. I have wanted to get to know you for a year now. Hoping we can connect soon. When: Friday, May 25, 2018. Where: the place we both work at. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914367 KNEAD TO KNOW You ordered two drinks and takeout. Conor Oberst was playing on the stereo. I made extremely awkward eye contact. I liked your style: tattoo on elbow, dark and mysterious, cute. I knead to know your name! When: Thursday, May 24, 2018. Where: Knead Bakery. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914366 TATTOOS IN CITY MARKET First I saw you by the prepared foods. I was staring, lost in thought, at the pastries and cookies. You were tattooed (and so am I) with a black shirt on (I think. I didn’t commit that to memory because I was distracted by your wry smile and handsomeness). Then, voilà, there you were again in line. Were you really noticing me? When: Wednesday, May 23, 2018. Where: City Market. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914365 NORTH AVE. AND BEYOND You looked at my apartment for rent, and we briefly chatted in the driveway. Then you were gone! Are you new to the area? Coffee or drinks on me. :) When: Saturday, May 19, 2018. Where: North Ave. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914364

SWIMMER ALBUM RELEASE PARTY You were a groovy, brown-bearded hottie tottie, and I was a blond dancing queen in the front row. We connected. And it was magic. Who the hell are you? When: Friday, May 11, 2018. Where: Nectar’s. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914363 RE: IN PLIEN AIR Is this the special nurse whose green eyes mesmerize me? The one person I tried to help the most whom I really miss? The person who made me laugh the most and smile and only kept me on the good path? I miss someone Sweaty who was slow on a typewriter. If so, reach out. :) When: Saturday, May 12, 2018. Where: around. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914362 PLENITUDE If you’re who I think you are, these hands you’ve dreamed of would love to explore you as we come together and I give you the kindest cut of all. Are you ready, on the table or elsewhere? When: Saturday, May 12, 2018. Where: Pine St. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914361 LEAN-TO, WIND TUBE Cute barista giving my friend and me some much-needed caffeine. Clearly needed it that a.m. Me: blonde in red pants taking a quick work break. You: hipster-esque with beard, looking great behind the bar, serving delicious java. Up to try a lean-to or a wind tube sometime with you. When: Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Where: Onyx Tonics Specialty Coffee. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914360 IN PLEIN AIR You’ve saved me more than once. I didn’t see you until it hit me all at once, and now you’re stuck in my brain. I feel like forgetting myself to live in a parallel reality; I’ve dreamed of your hands. I’d climb on top of that table and let you cut right through me. When: Saturday, May 12, 2018. Where: Pine St. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914359 RITE AID REALNESS We chatted about our allergies. You described your sneezing and nose blowing. I was hurried and not giving the greatest eye contact, but I noticed your wink when I went to leave. You seem like a pretty cool cat (though I’m allergic). Let’s go for a walk sometime when you’re not working — if the pollen’s not too bad, that is. When: Thursday, May 10, 2018. Where: Rite Aid, Cherry St. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914358 PHILADELPHIA! I was having a hell of a time trying to find a spot, and I pulled over to ask you if you knew of anywhere that was OK to park. You weren’t from around here, but our exchange (twice) was the high point of what had become a stressful afternoon. Thanks for that! :) When: Friday, May 11, 2018. Where: North End?. You: Man. Me: Woman. #914357


So, my partner and I have agreed to be open to anal, and she asked me to use a condom, which I don’t mind at all. I’m just wondering how we might go about starting foreplay and getting into the actual act? I want this to be as wonderful for her as possible.


Dongman (male, 18)

Dear Dongman,

You’re already on the right track by putting her comfort and pleasure first. Anal is popular in porn, but this is real life, and the kind of pounding shown on-screen is rarely enjoyable. The anus is full of nerve endings, and rough sex can hurt. Yes, use a condom. It will prevent the spread of bacteria. Do not use the same condom for vaginal sex, however, as it carries a very high risk for urinary tract infections. Lubrication is a must. The anus does not lubricate naturally like the vagina, and it is not as pliable. Thicker lubes, like K-Y, tend to last longer than thin, water-based ones. Baby wipes can help if things get messy. Start with a little penetration, perhaps with a small vibrator or your finger. You might want to do that a few times before going further. When she’s ready for intercourse, take it slowly. Lying flat on her stomach will be easier and less painful than doggystyle or the missionary position. Or she might want to be on top for more control. The head is the largest part of the penis, so ease it in and give her a few minutes to get used to it. Ask her how she feels. If she’s ready to go further, rock slowly; don’t thrust. Moving too quickly could injure her. To your girlfriend: Relax and communicate. Be open to having an orgasm. Stimulate your clitoris, or ask your partner to. Penetration may hurt a bit, and you may feel like you’re going to poop, but that sensation fades pretty quickly. Tell him to stop if it’s painful. And make sure to pee right after to avoid getting a UTI. Have fun — but take it slowly. In the end (ahem), it’s about enjoying each other.



BAREFOOT BEAUTY BY THE WATERFRONT I walked by you while taking my dog on a walk. I assume you were headed to watch the sunset out by the lake. You’re beautiful from head to toe, and I’d love to watch the sunset on the water with you sometime, if you’d like. When: Thursday, May 10, 2018. Where: downtown Burlington. You: Woman. Me: Man. #914356
