if i could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be... Swiss Miss Chocolate Pudding. if i werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a realtor, i would be a... television host of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Beachesâ&#x20AC;? on The Travel Channel.

My weirdest superstition or paranoia is... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become claustrophobic over the years, so I always worry about being trapped in an elevator or a subway. as a realtor, i think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to... LISTEN!

My favorite toy as a kid was... Barbie, but when I got bored with her, I loved to explore the woods behind my house. something i would like to do, but havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the chance... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to learn to flyfish.

One book everyone should read... The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

if i could have dinner with any famous person, dead or alive, i would choose... my deceased grandfather. He may not be famous, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do anything to have an evening with him to tell him about how my life has changed since I last saw him.

VERMONT FROST HEAVES Quick note before I go to West Virginia for a few days... The Vermont Frost Heaves season starts Nov. 16th in Barre against the Quebec City Kebekwa. Their first basketball game in Burlington will be two days later on Nov. 18th against the Buffalo Silverbacks. I sent an email to the Frost Heaves asking them if the games are going to be loud. My kids get scared by loud noises and we’ve wasted quite a few bucks on sporting events and circuses that we had to leave as soon as they started because it was too loud for our kids. Well, major props to Frost Heaves owner, Alexander Wolff. The guy responded to my email within a halfhour of me sending it at 11:19 p.m. on a Sunday night. That’s impressive. However, the coolest part was his response. He could have just sent back a form letter or P.R. statement talking about the schedule and excitement surrounding the games. But he didn’t. He sent this incredibly honest email: Brian, thanks a lot for asking. (As the parent of 5 and 3 year olds, I’ve been—I AM—there.) Fair warning, Opening Night in Barre, the Times-Argus is giving out several hundred cowbells to fans to make a racket. I’d keep my kids safely at home for that one. Otherwise, we’ll pipe some music in over the p.a., and while I don’t imagine it will be ear-splitting, I know from experience how sensitive little ears can be. We’re very grateful for your interest and support. Best, Alex Wolff Another great example of how community-oriented life is in Vermont. I guess we’ll have to get a babysitter for the opener.

WHY RICH RUNS Dear Mr. Tarrant, It amazes me that you are continuing to campaign for the U.S. Senate when that Final Arbiter of All Things Political in Vermont — Mr. Peter Freyne — has already decided that your opponent will be the next U.S. Senator from the Green Mountain State [“Inside Track,” October 18]! Are you naïve, or just out of touch with reality, as defined by Mr. Freyne? Maybe it’s your innate quality of persistence against all odds that served you so well in the founding and development of IDX. Or, more likely, it is because you realize, like most of us, that Peter Freyne just doesn’t know what he is talking about. He has a column to fill each week and acerbic drivel has served him well in the past, so why abandon it now? Certainly the whole Tarrant campaign operation must by now realize that their ultimate fate in this election was determined weeks ago by the Great Prognosticator — Peter “Nostradamus” Freyne, who has the “Inside Track” on all things political. Wait a second! Aren’t you spending your own hard-earned money on this hopeless campaign, rather than special interest or PAC funds, as others must? Are you crazy, or do you know something that the almighty Mr. Freyne doesn’t? Well, of course you do. It’s so simple that any right-thinking

person would have figured it out. That in the end, it is the people of Vermont who will decide the result of this very important Senate race — not some selfappointed journalist hack. So, Mr. Tarrant, keep up the fight and let the people decide, as we have always done in this great democracy. James R. LaFaye WINOOSKI

FILLING A HOLE Your bagel article [“The Hole Truth,” October 18] gave a brief mention to the Burlington Bagel Bakery. I’d like to augment the article with some additional information about the Vermont bagel scene nearly 30 years ago, and this pioneering business that was the model for all the bagel bakeries that followed. Vermont had no bagel bakery in 1979, and bagels had not been commercially baked in Vermont for many years. The prospective owners of BBB, Roy Feldman and Marty Schwartz, shopped for a loan to start the business and were told by one banker that there weren’t enough Jews in Vermont to warrant a loan. Many local residents knew better. The flatlanders who had moved to Vermont during the previous decade or two commonly brought bagels with them when they returned from visits back home to New York City, New Jersey and the Boston area. And a modestly large college population

just might find the idea of sandwiches served on a freshly baked, chewy, healthful bread product attractive. When he was a kid, Marty had worked his father’s lunch counter in Brooklyn, and Roy had talked a New Jersey bagel bakery owner into letting him hang around and learn the basics for a week or two. This background helped the two land a loan, and the bakery opened Labor Day weekend, 1979, in a newly renovated building on Main Street, halfway between St. Paul and Pine. The shop was cramped, the walk-in cooler was homemade, and a consultant from NYC came to town for a few days before we opened to teach us how to make and bake bagels, and mix the cream cheese. It was clear from the first weekend that Roy and Marty were right. The city that had recently welcomed an ice cream shop run by a couple of other flatlanders named Ben and Jerry, and was soon to elect a mayor with a broad Brooklyn accent, was ready for bagels, too. Success was phenomenal, and within a couple of years we moved up to the corner, next to the bus station, to a site large enough that we no longer needed to store our flour sacks in the hallway leading to the back door. On weekends, customers were lined up from the counter to the front door and beyond. And, oh, yeah, we made New York-style bagels. We sold them

Champlain Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resource Center, we add our collective, sorrow-filled voice to the outpouring of support towards Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grieving. Yet we know there is more to say and do. While the story is still being pieced together, we feel certain one sad and disturbing fact will be irrefutably corroborated: Michelle was the victim of a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violence against a woman. We need not look further back than the past few weeks to the murders of women and girls by men in Essex Junction, Vermont, Colorado and

Pennsylvania to recognize that male violence against females continues unabated. Let us label this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Male Violence,â&#x20AC;? not shifting the focus to the victim or location, but keeping the spotlight on the perpetrator and societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in socializing men to use violence. Unless we want manhood and masculinity to be defined by the behavior of violent men who assault, murder, and often commit suicide, it is incumbent upon men of conscience to move from being well-meaning bystanders to vocal

opponents of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violence against women. We invite men to join us in stepping forward to explicitly condemn such behavior, to pledge to educate ourselves about menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violence against women, to reach out as allies to women and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizations asking how we can help, to teach our children, especially our sons, about respecting girls and women, and encouraging fathers, coaches, clergy, educators â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to forge an alliance of peace makers in our community. Out of the tragedy of Michelle Gardner-Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, may we become more personally aware of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violence, and engaged in collective action to prevent such violence. Doing so will both honor Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory and demonstrate our intention to create a society committed to raising healthy boys and promoting peace-making men â&#x20AC;&#x201D; concerned citizens our community so desperately needs. Mark Montalban

FACE OFF I read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Face Timeâ&#x20AC;? by Ken Picard [â&#x20AC;&#x153;Work,â&#x20AC;? October 25]. I was personally offended by the comments made in this Q&A piece, which did not warrant two pages. Ms. Infantino has a patronizing attitude about those of us who live in Vermont. Where she once worked and the journalism degree she has are irrelevant to her being a makeup artist. I am not one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;neurotic people from the city who are never happy.â&#x20AC;? Nor are my Burlington friends and family. I like to be well dressed, wear appropriate makeup, and consider people of Vermont rather sophisticated. I was particularly offended by her references to farmers and codgers. As for the politicians, of whom she is critical â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we do play a leadership role on the national level. I guess we choose them well. I suggest she move back to Milan and drink her espressos in the Italian cafĂŠs and not here. Wendy Tress BURLINGTON


Montalban writes on behalf of the Lake Champlain Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resource Center Board of Directors.

CORRECTION: In the October 4 Winter Sports Preview story, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting Hammered,â&#x20AC;? CherryMax Sleds President Steve Luhr was quoted as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew a sled for adults didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist.â&#x20AC;? But as several astute readers have pointed out, Mad River Rocket of Warren has been making sleds for adults since 1987. Seven Days regrets the error.

Halloween is just around the corner. So it makes sense that Rob Coates would put up a Day of the Dead shrine in his Mexican-imports store, Sur al Norte, in Montpelier. For the uninitiated, Dia de los Muertos is a venerable tradition — observed on November 1 and 2 — in which Mexican families honor their dearly departed. Of course, the pagan-meets-Christian holiday also celebrates life with sumptuous feasts, colorful decorations and general merriment. And it has spawned a folk-art industry of little clay skeletons in various outfits and scenarios. Rather than display an imported shrine, Coates offered a couple of local schoolteachers a unique cultural-studies opportunity: to let their students create shrine objects and install them in his store. But first, the students had to dedicate them to someone. “I said they and the kids could pick whoever, real or mythical,” says Coates. “Coincidentally, they both picked Steve Irwin.” The host of Animal Planet’s “Crocodile Hunter” met his fate last month at the business end of a stingray. It was a spectacular death, highly publicized and, as it happened, captured on film for all to see. No doubt it made an impression on kids. Still, Coates was a little surprised that entirely independent groups of schoolchildren in central Vermont chose to honor the Aussie naturalist. “It was unusual,” Coates muses. “Two schools in two towns.” And two age groups: Sara Baker’s second- and third-graders from Moretown Elementary, and Barbara Austin-Hutchins’ juniors and seniors from Montpelier High School. The younger students’ installation, near Sur al Norte’s front entrance, is on a small table and comprises such objects as a little snake, foil pictures and candleholders. The wall-mounted high school altar is, appropriately, much bigger, says Coates — about 7 feet high and 5 feet wide. “There was more artistic license for the high school kids,” he reports. Locals can view the shrines at his River Street shop; everyone else can check out the Mexican merch at And how is Coates spending the Day of the Dead? “Working, as always,” he says. “Then I’ll probably just get together with friends.” PAMELA POLSTON


Non-Citizen Residents Seek Right to Vote in Vermont BY CATHY RESMER

0-%Z_liZ_%jkYlic`e^kfe/-+%)/'' 2x6-stella102506.indd 1

10/20/06 4:22:27 PM

BURLINGTON — Marta Ceroni won’t be voting on November 7 — not because she doesn’t want to; but because she can’t. Ceroni, an assistant professor at the University of Vermont’s Gund Institute, has lived in the U.S. for nine years — in Burlington for the last four. But she’s still an Italian citizen, which means that she can’t vote. At least, not yet. Ceroni, founder of the nonpartisan Local Democracy Project, suggests that non-citizens like herself should be granted the right to vote, at least in local elections. She recently compiled an online survey to gauge interest among non-citizen Vermont residents, and plans to approach the Burlington City Council to ask that the city charter be amended to give non-citizen residents a say in how the Queen City is run. The Local Democracy Project will hold a meeting to discuss its campaign on November 2 at 7 p.m., at Burlington’s Euro Gourmet Café. The idea is actually not as rad-

ical as it might seem. The U.S. Constitution gives states the right to decide who votes in elections and, until the 1920s, many allowed non-citizens to vote. According to Ron Hayduk, codirector of the Immigrant Rights Voting Project, non-citizens voted in 40 states and territories between 1776 and 1926. That ended as a wave of immigrants entered the U.S., but for the past few years activists nationwide have been pushing to reinstitute the practice. Communities in Maryland, Illinois and Massachusetts have passed laws granting some voting rights to non-citizens; cities in California and New York have considered similar legislation. Ceroni points out that noncitizens contribute to the tax base, send their kids to city schools, and contribute valuable cultural diversity. They even serve in the military. “There are a lot of folks in Iraq who are willing to die for this country,” she notes, “but they can’t even vote.”

She adds that extending local suffrage would make non-citizens feel more like part of the community. That’s important, Ceroni says, because Burlington has a sizable non-citizen population. According to the 2000 Census, Burlington had 3140 foreignborn residents, just 39 percent of whom were naturalized citizens. Voting, she says, “would be a great integration tool.” According to her survey, Ceroni is not alone in her desire to vote. She says 28 non-citizen respondents participated, and most rated non-citizen voting in local elections as “important.” Ceroni had hoped for more respondents, but reports many people approached her personally and expressed a fear of jeopardizing their jobs or immigration status, despite the fact that the survey was anonymous. Ceroni says she understands their fear. It can be scary to rock the boat in post-9/11 America, CONTINUED >>

COLCHESTER —Drivers and bikers traversing the old Lime Kiln Bridge that links Colchester to South Burlington probably had no inkling of its architectural significance. Below a narrow, crumbling deck, the 93-year-old bridge was constructed of a series of heroic arches suspended high above the Winooski River Gorge. On the Vermont Agency of Transportation website, archaeologist Chris Slesar writes of this

relied on pre-stressed concrete slabs fabricated at the Cararra works in Middlebury. Wilson further notes that the bridge surface has been outfitted with de-icing membranes representative of the “pro-active approach” taken by the state agency, known as VTrans. The Lime Kiln Bridge beat out about 40 nominated projects for the number-two spot on the Illinois-based magazine’s annual top-10 list, which will be pub-

rather than just three weeks, notes Sherward Farnsworth, project director for VTrans. The 360,000 cubic yards of fill came from Fletcher Allen’s scandalplagued and budget-busting “Renaissance Project.” St. Michael’s College donated the land for the new bridge. In return, the school paid nothing for the filling of the remainder of the quarry, which it also owns. St. Mike’s will now be able to use the

marvel of early-20th-century engineering: “Rarely does the built environment meet the natural environment with such grace.” Travelers crossing the bridge that will take the place of the original might like to know that the new structure is being honored as the second-most-impressive bridge built in North America this year. “Only the most challenging jobs are going to get on our top-10 list,” says Bill Wilson, editorial director of Roads and Bridges magazine. “And the Lime Kiln Bridge project is chock-full of challenges.” Wilson points to the success of Vermont Agency of Transportation engineers and consultants in completing a project that exhibits elegant form as well as ingenious solutions to site-specific problems. On schedule. The $9 million bridge mimics the historic design of its predecessor but has been executed with modern materials. Instead of the cast-in-place concrete used in 1913, the 21st-century builders

lished in its November issue. “This was probably the most competitive Top 10 there’s been since I created the list six years ago,” Wilson says. The Benicia-Martinez Bridge in the San Francisco Bay area is being honored as the best bridge completed or under construction in 2006. This $800 million, 8790foot-long span has been designed to withstand seismic shocks of an intensity that occurs about once a century, Wilson notes. In overcoming “geo-technical issues of great intricacy,” the Lime Kiln’s engineers filled in a longabandoned quarry that allowed the new bridge to be constructed alongside the original, says Colchester public works director Bryan Osborne. The bridge opened to traffic a month ago and will be officially inaugurated next August, when it is expected to be fully operational. If the quarry and a connecting tunnel had not been filled, Lime Kiln Road would have had to remain closed for up to 18 months

land as athletic fields or for construction of a hockey rink, Farnsworth says. The project moved smoothly once it got going, but preparatory work and permit permutations consumed almost 15 years, Osborne points out. He says a full year was spent negotiating with the state’s Department of Historic Preservation, which had wanted Colchester and South Burlington to preserve the old bridge as a pedestrian span. But the additional cost of rehabbing that structure would have placed the entire project beyond the two towns’ financial means, Osborne says. And the old bridge had already been renovated twice — in 1940 and in 1991. The replacement structure is the product of an agreement to tear down the original after architectural historians have had a chance to document it. There’s still time to say good-bye to your great-grandparents’ bridge. It won’t be entirely demolished till December. �

especially while navigating the lengthy process of seeking citizenship. “It’s a very difficult climate,” she admits. Most of Ceroni’s respondents were from Canada — 21 percent — followed by India, Sweden and Russia. Nearly half live in Burlington; the rest reside in nearby communities. On average they’ve been here for more than three years. The majority feels that legal immigrants should earn the right to vote in local elections after a year of residency; 21 percent preferred two years. Roel Boumans, a Dutch immi-

grant and one of Ceroni’s colleagues at Gund, says he’d like to vote in Charlotte. He has lived in the U.S. for 20 years — in Charlotte for the last four. He owns a 14-acre farm, but when residents discuss land-use issues at Town Meeting Day, he has to keep quiet. He can’t even sit with his neighbors — he’s shunted off to the visitor’s section. “It’s kind of a painful situation,” Boumans says. He claims he knows developers in town who would like to build near his land, and he complains that, as voters, they have an advantage. “It’s an uneven playing field,”

Boumans says. “By owning land in Charlotte, I automatically become part of the political scene there.” But though Ceroni and Boumans would like to see things change, Ceroni stresses that she doesn’t plan to organize protests. “We don’t want to take to the streets,” she says. “It’s not like that.” More than anything else, she says she’s motivated by a desire to make Burlington a community that reflects the interests of all its residents. She says, “It’s a matter of asking the question: What does it mean to be a fully accepting democratic society at the local level?” �

You just don’t know who’s out there. I feel like, once it’s dark now, people are scared. CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE JUNIOR MIKE SHANNON

BURLINGTON — Being located in or near the city of Burlington is an asset for colleges like the University of Vermont, but the recent murder of UVM senior Michelle Gardner-Quinn has caused many students to re-evaluate their impressions of this quiet college town and to change their behavior, especially late at night. According to Ashley Fitzpatrick, a senior at St. Michael’s College, that reaction is not limited to students at UVM. She says St. Mike’s students are definitely more cautious about what they’re doing at night and with whom. “We are a lot more aware of who and what is around us,” she says. “Before I used to walk around alone. I don’t walk anywhere by myself now — it makes me nervous.” UVM sophomore Katie Nickitas agrees. “I think that when you go off campus — or even on campus — and are out at night as a female, you need to take precautions,” she says. “I do, and would feel extremely nervous walking alone almost anywhere at night.” Nancy Solberg, a freshman who lives on UVM’s Redstone campus, says she always takes the bus downtown and back, but usually walks from the Living and Learning complex to Redstone. After police found Gardner-Quinn’s body last week, Solberg felt uncomfortable walking alone that far, even during the day. She called a friend on her cell phone for an escort. She adds that students in her dorm used to leave the building through emergency exit doors, but don’t anymore. Campus security is watching the doors more closely, she says, and now if they’re used for anything other than an emergency, students are fined. In a press release last Wednesday, the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence said women are right to be scared. “The unfortunate reality is that women’s safety is potentially at risk in every aspect of their lives — in their homes, at school, at work, or on the street,” the release reads. “There is a war against women occurring in our society, and until we address the oppressions underlying this injustice, women will not truly be safe regardless of who or where they are.” Male students say they understand their female

classmates’ fear, but few of them seem to share it. “Do I feel less safe? Not really,” says UVM junior Andrew Detullio. But he says he does feel more aware of his surroundings. “You just notice things more,” says Detullio. “If you walk past someone you kind of are a little more skeptical of them.” He adds that he’s not at all reluctant to walk a female friend home if she feels uneasy. UVM senior Scott Kuhlen says more of his female friends are asking him for an escort. “I was hanging out with one of my friends recently, and she said, ‘You are walking me home tonight,’” he recalls. “I’ve definitely heard women be more assertive about being walked home.” Kuhlen’s also more aware of how he behaves around women he sees walking home alone. A few nights after Gardner-Quinn’s disappearance, Kuhlen found himself strolling behind a woman late at night. He didn’t know her, and she didn’t say anything to him, but he thought his presence might have made her uncomfortable, so he backed off a bit. “I kind of just stopped and looked at my cell phone or something,” he says, “just to give some distance there.” He’s done that a few times since, he adds. “I’ve talked to friends who’ve had the same experience.” Kuhlen’s housemate, Champlain College junior Mike Shannon, says he’s also become more sensitive to requests from female friends who want him to walk or drive them home. “You just don’t know who’s out there,” he says. “I feel like, once it’s dark now, people are scared.” Members of the UVM community are organizing to combat that fear. On Thursday, October 26, there will be a speak-out on violence against women at noon on the steps of Waterman, sponsored by Men Advocating Change. And on Monday, October 30, the UVM Women’s Center is organizing a Community Brainstorm for Action in Billings’ North Lounge, from 6 to 8 p.m. Says the UVM website: “This gathering will provide a forum to share ideas about how to end violence against women.” � UVM student Molly Shaker contributed to this story.

Dunne on the Attack




after Doobie-Doo the Republican on several fronts, including his debate-ducking and his annual Lite-Gov work load compared to annual Lite-Gov salary. “Dubie ran against me when I was the incumbent lieutenant governor in 2000,” said Racine, “and we didn’t have a hard time finding him for debates. He was happy to debate me as an incumbent.” Lt. Gov. Racine, who lost the governor’s race to Jim Douglas in 2002, told reporters in the hallway, “I think it looks like he’s hiding, to me, and that’s disappointing. Brian has his points of view and he should be willing to talk about them.” Dubie, meanwhile, says he’s agreed to five candidate debates this year. But Dunne says Dubie prerecorded one, and canceled out of a League of Women Voters debate in Burlington “48 hours ahead of time. We’re still not sure why.” Dunne told “Inside Track” he had “made the case that it was a lot closer to his house [Essex Junction] than it was to mine

[Hartland]. It’s very frustrating,” said the rookie statewide contender. Dubie told “Inside Track” on Tuesday, “The people of Vermont are pretty smart. If they like the sort of work that I’ve done, then put me in for another two years. If you think my opponent’s promises have more value, with all due respect, go for it.” Why so few debates? “We’re doing five. Wow!” said Dubie. “That’s a lot.”And he recalled that when he challenged Lt. Gov. Racine in 2000, Ol’ Dougie could only make three debates. And what about hours on the job? “The fact is,” said Captain DoobieDoo, “when I ran for lieutenant governor, I always said I was going to continue my work, which I’ve done for 17 years as an airline pilot. I’ve been in Air Force Reserves for almost 30 years. I’ve been clear that, just like Howard Dean, who practiced medicine, and Doug Racine, who sold cars, I’m going to continue my work that I’ve done for my entire life.” Is it fair of Young Dunne to raise the work issue? “I’ve talked to Sen. Dick Mazza [a veteran Democrat from Colchester], and he’s got a pretty good assessment of what the people of Vermont think,” said Ol’ Brian. “And Sen. Mazza says that dog’s not going to hunt.” We shall see. Our sources say that, unlike his ticketmate Gov. Jim Douglas, Lt. Gov. Dubie’s positives are only in the mid-40s. Anything under 50 percent is not a good number for an incumbent. It’s a long shot, but clearly, Matt Dunne has no “quit” in his gas tank.

Every Breath You Take Makes it Sparkle


here’s no quit in Democrat Matt Dunne. The state senator from Hartland isn’t letting incumbent Republican Brian Dubie get away with a game strategy taken from basketball hard court — running out the clock with a four-corner stall! Sunday evening, Dunne and Progressive Lite-Gov candidate Marvin Malek were up in Craftsbury Common for a candidates’ debate. As usual, Dubie didn’t show. Less said the better this year if you’re wearing a GOP jersey, eh? Perfectly understandable. Monday morning Young Dunne was joined by former Lt. Gov. Doug Racine for a creative little media event in the Statehouse’s main hallway. The dynamic duo stood by the open door to the LiteGov’s ceremonial office — Racine’s old one and the new one Dunne has his eye on. The leaf-peeper tourists had no idea what was cooking. Young Dunne the Democrat, whose biggest deficit is low name recognition, is

Bush-Rainville Team — Just got a call from “Mary,” a 75-year-old Burlington 2x5-Leunigs090606 mother of eight and grandma of many more, who tells me she’s a regular “Inside Track” reader. She called me up out of the 2x5-bobcat101806.indd 1 blue because, she said, “she’s so sick of watching [President] Bush on the TV.” Grandma Mary said she had to turn it off! She’s been an “Inside Track” reader for years and just wanted someone to talk to. God bless her! Grandma Mary is not alone. The Big World, the one that includes the United States of America, has been a rather scary place of late, both overseas and onshore. There’s just something about a bleak, dark future for an America that’s run on the principles of deceit and incompetence. The national network TV news is even showing a disturbing uptick in violent, horrible, multiple-slayings-of-strangers-type crimes. Blended in with the nightly TV bloodbath from Iraq, network news has become unwatchable for many of us these days. Two months ago, yours truly was almost too scared to speak up about how crucial it is for the party in power to get the heaveho from U.S. voters on November 7. The former Saratoga gambler in me didn’t want to jinx it. Shh! Well, that conversation has been happening with a great deal more frequency

around these parts lately. Folks are getting up the courage to express in words just how important it is to get a Democrat majority in January, in at least one house of Congress. Some have expressed fear of ballot-box fixing in key congressional districts, and an unusually high number of ballot challenges by Republican Party officials. Let’s face it. The Grand Old Party is fighting for its political survival. Losing power and their congressional posts may also mean loss of personal privilege for some of the more egregious lawbreakers in the GOP bunch — despite Speaker of the House-to-be Nancy Pelosi’s weekend pledge not to pursue impeachment proceedings in the next Congress. Then, in a desperate reversal of position, our beloved President George W. Bush told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday that he’s never told the American people we’ve got to “stay the course” in Iraq. “Well, listen, we’ve never been ‘stay the course, George,’” said our president. “We have been: ‘We will complete our mission, we will do our job and help achieve the goal,’ but we’re constantly adjusting the tactics, constantly.” Especially the public-relations tactics, eh, George? Weapons of mass destruction — or was it merely distraction? And then, on Monday morning, White House counselor Dan Bartlett told CBS News, “It’s never been a stay-the-course strategy.” Within hours the Think think tank posted a half-dozen direct quotes from White House transcripts of President George W. Bush saying exactly that. The earliest was December 15, 2003: “We will stay the course until the job is done, Steve. And the temptation is to try to get the president or somebody to put a timetable on the definition of getting the job done. We’re just going to stay the course,” repeated the president. The most recent “stay the course” utterance was less than two months ago. Does this BushCheney-Rumsfeld-Rice crowd truly consider the American people to be that stupid? Don’t answer that. Here in Vermont, the radical, last-minute, pre-election course change in the Bush administration’s failed Iraq war strategy hit home as Republican congressional candidate Martha Rainville appeared Tuesday on “The Mark Johnson Show” on WDEV radio. Republican Rainville and Democratic State Sen. Peter Welch are squaring off in the race to fill Bernie Sanders’ seat. We’ve seen more of Marvelous Martha in the last five months than in all previous recorded history, and every time we’ve seen her she’s not only worn a different outfit, she’s had a different political rap. Back in July, Candidate Rainville was not convinced that

“global warming” was scientific “fact” — as opposed to left-wing science “fiction.” Today it’s new gospel, and Martha is suddenly an anti-global-warming cheerleader. Fits in with her “I love nature” TV spot, eh? And just a few weeks ago, Marvelous Martha had a radically different take on Iraq. The former Vermont National Guard adjutant general, a rising political star courted by both major parties, was telling anyone who would listen that the real problem with Iraq was, the American people just weren’t getting all the “good news” about the progress underway there. Hello? Test one-two. Test? “Just last week,” said her Democrat opponent Peter Welch, “my eyes started popping out of my head when she started talking about how we were continuing our remarkable progress in Iraq. She was more upbeat about Iraq than Cheney!” Marvelous Martha’s Iraq War position has apparently undergone a 180-degree course change. Candidate Rainville referred to the war in Iraq as a “debacle.” Johnson was so shocked and dumbfounded by Rainville’s new word choice that he repeatedly asked her to explain herself. “Debacle,” said Marvelous Martha, is how she would describe “the current situation.” It was definitely her chosen buzz word for the day, using it at least six times on the program when referring to what history will remember as the Bush administration’s disastrous and dishonest Iraq War. One reason the war is a “debacle,” Candidate Rainville explained, is because “it has been used to shape all the political campaigns this year.” “It’s been used,” she added, “to detract the attention of the American people from other important issues.” The Iraqi government, said this faithful George W. Bush supporter, has to “take control of its future.” And we Americans, she said, “have to start redeploying our troops for many reasons.” “Debacle,” eh? That was a pretty quick change of position. Well, when nothing works — not even lowering gasoline prices a dollar or more nationwide — one must make some radical policy changes. But will it fly with Vermont voters? As Peter Welch put it, “debacle” is a new word for his Republican opponent to use. “It’s also,” he said, “about three-and-a-half years late.” Yes, indeed. Poll Numbers? — Hoping we get some closing polls from our major Vermont media outlets in the last two weeks before the election. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Remember 2002, when The Burlington Free Press had Democrat Doug Racine up 10 points over Jim Douglas in the governor’s race? Remember who won?

With that in mind, our sources in Sanderista Heaven tell “Inside Track” that a weekend Sanders campaign poll shows Ol’ Bernardo widening his enormous lead over his obnoxious, uninformed Republican opponent Rich Tarrant, the self-funder. The numbers we get from the weekend show Bernie Sanders climbing up to 68 percent and Tarrant dropping down to 25 percent. Yours truly has always said, the only thing in doubt is whether Sanders, Vermont’s fiery, straight-talking and beloved Independent, breaks 70 percent with his senatorial landslide. In fact, just Monday, we got a call from a D.C. reporter who was coming up to interview Vermont’s next U.S. senator on Tuesday. America, fasten your seat belt! That same weekend poll showed Democrat Welch 10 points ahead of Republican Rainville —50-40 percent. Turning into a tree-hugging antiwar protester might not be enough to close that gap for Martha . . . this year. Make no mistake, Democrats are very impressed by Rainville’s positives. In a different year, without the Bush White House “debacle” dragging down the entire GOP ticket, Marvelous Martha would be nose-to-nose to the finish line and everyone knows it. Martha vs. Randy — With less than a fortnight to go, the state auditor’s race is getting interesting. Veteran Progressive Martha Abbott is on the radio with $7000 worth of very funny ads. “Abbott for Auditor” — or is it “Rabbit for Governor?” The ads began airing this week. If you don’t do the car thing much, go to her website: to listen. The other “Martha” on the 2006 Vermont statewide ballot — one who’s been there on and off since the 1970s — describes her radio campaign as “my attempt to break through the political noise of the bigger races. We’re all bombarded.” Breaking through that “noise,” she says, requires humor. Martha’s got some to give. On a more serious side, Abbott, the Progressive candidate who’s facing Democrat Thomas M. Salmon CPA and incumbent Republican Randy Brock, tells “Inside Track” she’s planning a Wednesday Montpelier presser to raise some questions about how much time Auditor Brock puts in on the job. She has requested, and received, copies of Brock’s work calendar for the past two years and has been reviewing it. Stay tuned. As for her sense of how the race is going, Abbott told us, “If I was a brand-name party, I would win!” �

Curses, Foiled Again When a cabdriver reported that a man robbed him after being dropped off in Severn, Md., he added that the crook left behind a coin purse containing his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, Social Security card and a paycheck made out to William Ludlow, 30.

When Plano, Ill., furniture-store owner Randy Gonigam announced that shoppers would get their furniture free if the Chicago Bears kept the Green Bay Packers from scoring in their season opener, he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worried, because the Packers had scored in 233 straight games. Gonigam reported that the wellpublicized promotion helped boost his Labor Day weekend business 30 percent. The only glitch, he admitted, was having to give away $275,000 worth of furniture after the Bears beat the Packers, 26-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still felt awfully strange sitting there in the fourth quarter,â&#x20AC;? Gonigam said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just knowing we would be giving back all this money to all those people.â&#x20AC;?

Litigation Nation Fraser Ross, the owner of Kitson, a Hollywood clothing boutique favored by young celebrities, sued Us Weekly magazine, accusing the publication of ignoring the store. Pointing out that the snub began after the magazine, which once called Kitson â&#x20AC;&#x153;L.A.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hippest hot spot,â&#x20AC;? settled a previous complaint by agreeing not to disrupt business at the store or disparage its reputation, Ross said the magazine now refuses to name or show the Kitson brand in credits, captions or celebrity photographs. Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suit claims Us Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of attention is costing the store $10,000 a week.

The man speaking to me from the back of my taxi appeared weary, as if burdened by a crushing weight. But he also seemed sober, which was unusual for a late, late-night customer from the downtown bar scene. He had a neatly trimmed blond goatee and mustache, and his thick blond hair was tied back in a ponytail with a black leather cord. Long-haired guys generally fall into one of two camps: hippies or bikers. This

On the surface, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come across as overtly violent, but somehow I knew he was a person you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cross. Or maybe not. Like most everyone in town, my perspective has been shaken this past week. A few days earlier, the police had found the murdered body of a young woman from UVM. This is not supposed to happen in Vermont, but every once in a while we rediscover that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not immune. The Green Mountains, powerful and comforting as they are, do not provide a shield. A pall hung over the city all weekend, palpable and depressing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yup,â&#x20AC;? he continued, as we eased onto the highway en route to his home in Richmond, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this was a party for my buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. These days thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only kind of thing that gets me out of the house at night.â&#x20AC;? As a late-shift cabbie, I wish I had a buck for every time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard this refrain. Like professional athletes, clubgoers peak in their mid- to late-twenties, only to fall off precipitously when they pass into their thirties. Physically and psychically, bar-hopping takes a toll. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not merely the grueling hours, blasting music, casual hook-ups and rivers of alcohol. As adulthood takes hold, so does the need for deeper social connections. The bells, whistles and neon lights no longer satisfy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting a little old for this, huh?â&#x20AC;? I asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It goes way beyond that, man,â&#x20AC;? he replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hear about it.â&#x20AC;? There was something genuine, something real about this person that made me want to understand the circumstances of his life, what had led to this moment: the height of foliage season, northern Vermont, 2006.

Now, of course, I was curious about the charge, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to ask. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I pled guilty to possession with intent.

“Agile storytelling and enthralling stagecraft.” (Wall Street Journal)

If you assume a vampire has the same caloric/nutritional requirements as us mortals, how much blood would they have to suck each day? Robin, via email If you have sex with a zombie, are you at risk of becoming one? Steve, Wichita, Kansas Jeepers, Steve. Sounds like the dating scene in Wichita leaves something to be desired. Reliable information about the undead isn’t easy to come by. Browsing in PubMed, the online medical database, we come upon an article in the September 2004 Biomedica by one E. Escobar Cifuentes entitled (in translation) “Rabies transmitted by vampires.” This sounds promising, and reminds us, moreover, of an aspect of the problem that has been sadly neglected. On close reading, however, it turns out the varmints in question are vampire bats. Science having let us down, we’re obliged to seek insight in legend and art, the latter admittedly somewhat loosely construed, e.g., the work of George Romero. Take the matter of vampires vs. werewolves. The literature and films of old rarely mention the two in the same story, although they appear to have much in common. They share some physical traits, such as pointed ears and animal-like appearance. The old Slavonic word volkodlak, which translates roughly as “wolf hair” or “wolf mane,” means “werewolf ” in most places but “bloodsucking revenant” (vampire to you) in Serbia. Tradition there has it that when a werewolf dies it rises again as a vampire, and that eating the flesh of a sheep killed by a wolf meant turning into a vampire after death. Finally, we know that vampires can take the form of a wolf and summon wolves to do their bidding. Despite this seemingly close relationship, encounters between vampires and werewolves are largely limited to recent literature and movies, e.g., the Anita Blake novels, the Underworld movies and the Marvel comics featuring Nina Price, Vampire by Night. No disrespect, but who do you think has a better handle on the undead, pimply faced comics auteurs or medieval Serbs? Taking Balkan lore as our starting point, therefore, we deduce that vampirism is the next stage in the werewolf ’s natural history, death being the lycanthropic equivalent of a caterpillar’s cocoon. Interesting as this may be from a necrobiological standpoint, it lowers the dramatic stakes. A werewolf nipping at a vampire? All you’ll likely get is a cranky vampire — traditionally lycanthropy is transmitted by magic or curse rather than bites. A vampire who fatally bites a werewolf, meanwhile, merely hastens a metamorphosis that would have occurred anyway. And for what? Sucking the lifeblood of an innocent maiden is one thing. Going after a slobbering beast, on the other hand, makes you think: Dude must be hard up.

Next, nutrition. We know vampires drink a lot of blood — they’re often described as engorged with it after feeding. But how much do they really need? Assume a 6foot, 170-pound male vampire has a base metabolic rate of 1800 calories per day. He sleeps two-thirds of said day but must adopt an active lifestyle by night in pursuit of hemoglobin, so add 2400 calories. The energy required to turn into a bat, wolf, mist, etc., hasn’t been clinically established but, judging from sparing use of the trick in Bram Stoker’s book, must be substantial — say, 2000 calories nightly, for a total daily requirement of 6200 calories. A unit of blood (450 milliliters) contains about 600 calories; individuals typically hold 4000 to 6000 milliliters, giving us a potential of 5333 to 8000 calories per victim. A methodical vampire, then, could easily get by with one well-drained victim per night. Indeed, given the number of people nowadays who look like they’d be happy to socialize with the Dracula crowd, it’s surprising you don’t see more vampires with a weight problem. Finally, to the risks of zombie sex. Much depends on what type of zombie we’re talking about. Traditional voodoo zombies are dead people animated by a shaman, so you’re only in danger of becoming one yourself if you die, after which you don’t care anyhow. “Real” zombies, as investigated by Wade Davis, author of the controversial 1985 zombie study The Serpent and the Rainbow, arrive at their state upon being given two drugs — one to induce paralysis and another to create a disconnect from reality so they can be controlled. You could have sex with somebody in this condition; among a certain subset of men, in fact, it remains the default romantic strategy. But predators of this sort generally take care to remain unzombified themselves. Movie zombies are another matter. Judging from the Romero oeuvre, zombie infection is spread by bites and other wounds. Abrasions during sex aren’t uncommon, so condoms would be in order. Then again, Steve, we can’t ignore the possibility you’ve misdiagnosed the problem. Who knows — with a little more finesse on your part, maybe next time she’ll wake up. CECIL ADAMS

Slim Gym

S IMAGE Jordan Silverman

porting a purple-and-white-striped Adidas shirt, Dockers khaki shorts and a pair of sturdy Keen sandals, Tammy Charbonneau is the classic gym teacher. As she preps for P.E. class at Burlington’s Champlain Elementary School on a recent Tuesday afternoon, I expect to see her wheel out a squeaky cart of orange dodge balls, or a stack of square, flat, wooden scooters. I can almost feel the itch of my old polyester gym uniforms and my armpits starting to sweat as I wait to be picked for a team. Charbonneau interrupts my flashback by clicking shut her handheld PDA, on which she’s been reviewing today’s lesson. “This is not about playing games,” she says as a line of squirming first-graders marches across the mouse-gray linoleum in the cafeteria/gymnasium. “This is a classroom.” I can’t help but notice the minutes ticking by on the wall clock as Charbonneau crams her lesson into one of the two 30-minute time slots she has with these first-graders each week. Though Burlington schools now benefit from a grant that arms their physical education teachers with PDAs, pedometers and other hightech tools, no amount of number crunching on nifty handhelds can stretch the thin allotment of time eked out for exercise. It’s a symptom of a national problem. According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), the percentage of overweight or obese kids in the United States has more than doubled “Fit to Live” is a monthly column that can also be read on To reach Sarah Tuff, email

in the last 30 years. But just how — and for how long each day or week — should schools battle this bulge? In its 2006 Shape of the Nation Report, NASPE recommends that all elementary school students participate in at least 150 minutes per week of physical education; for middle and high school students, it’s 225 minutes for the entire school year. With just two 30-minute classes each week, schools such as Champlain Elementary fail the new NASPE standards. “Administrators have such pressure to develop performance in schools on standardized tests,” says Lindsay Simpson Spinney, physical education consultant for the Vermont Department of Education. “Unfortunately, physical education is sort of taking a back seat to that.” In terms of time allotted to P.E., Burlington has improved in the last decade, says Chris Souliere, a P.E. teacher for C.P. Smith Elementary who’s been with the school district for nearly 20 years. “For 10 years, it was 20-minute classes — it was ridiculous,” says Souliere. “But we still have the minimal requirement in the state of Vermont — Burlington is not up to par.” Simpson Spinney, who helps guide school districts toward appropriate physical education programs, says that quality, not quantity, is what matters. She points to a recent study by Cornell University that found that increasing gym class by 200 minutes each week had a minimal effect on activity levels. “There’s no question that students need to be more physically active,” she says. “But right now, we’re trying to focus on the improvement of quality P.E.” One of the ways to improve physical education, says Simpson Spinney, is to erase old notions of picking teams and playing seemingly pointless

games. “We’re really trying to move away from the term ‘gym class,’ because it tends to have negative connotations, especially for folks in the older generation who had a negative experience with P.E.,” she says. “And the most important shift is to develop programs that really individualize students’ personal fitness.” Thanks to a recent three-year, $500,000 grant from the Carol M. White Physical Education Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Education, Burlington schools now have the tools to help individualize students’ fitness. P.E. teachers benefit from MicroFit Healthstar Manager, a software program that allows them to use handheld PDAs to collect data on everything from flexibility to footsteps tracked on pedometers. The data is shared with other schools so that a child’s fitness can be consistently monitored from kindergarten through 10th grade. (Because Vermont requires high schoolers to take only a year and a half of P.E. to graduate, most fizzle by junior year, explains Souliere.) “We’ve always been fitness testing, but this makes it easier and more accurate,” Souliere says. “And the kids are more aware, because they get a printed report with color graphs that they can share with their families.” What happens to the kids who score poorly? “It’s disheartening, especially for the kids who are overweight,” acknowledges Souliere. “But I believe in being honest, and it gets the parents focused on health and fitness levels. I’ve had so many families just turn around their whole lifestyle.” Grant-funded pedometers, says Souliere, help keep elementary kids moving as much as possible in the limited amount of P.E. time. At Champlain Elementary,

Charbonneau’s first-graders take turns holding each other’s feet for sit-ups, then they play tag. In between chasing their classmates, the kids learn lessons on heart rates — and on how to accommodate one boy with disabilities. When Charbonneau asks for volunteers to push his wheelchair, every single hand shoots toward the ceiling. It’s a far cry from gym classes where kids who weren’t über-jocks were left to sulk on the sidelines. At Hunt Middle School, teacher Joan Shortsleeve has helped design an alternative P.E. class for overweight or obese kids who are selected based on their body mass indices and invited to participate. “They’re very happy to be in the class,” says Shortsleeve. “It’s a way to participate with like-sized peers in a small, supportive setting.” The federal grant has also allowed Burlington to buy equipment that may foster a lifelong appreciation of physical fitness, such as yoga mats, hand weights and physio balls. When the snow flies this winter, elementary, middle and high school students will have a chance to tramp around school grounds or glide on the trails of Ethan Allen Park, thanks to new snowshoes and cross-country skis. Such activities, says Simpson Spinney, do more than teach Vermont kids how to be active in their own backyards and tackle weight-control issues. They also help students develop the confidence they need to excel in school and perform well on the standardized tests that can gobble up precious school time. “It doesn’t have to be an either/or situation,” says Simpson Spinney. “Physical education can go hand in hand with a strong academic focus and performance. Students who are physically active are going to be more alert in class and have better focus — and that can lead to better scores.” m

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard not to relish the spectacle of the Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hoist on Mark Foleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quivering petard. But the pleasure wanes as the sanctimony rises â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a chorus of politicians, pundits and reporters all singing the words child protection. The GOP knew for years that the sixterm Florida congressman was â&#x20AC;&#x153;funnyâ&#x20AC;? with the pages. They said nothing, except for the occasional, sotto voce warning to steer clear of the creep. Their first priority was to protect their own asses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not, as Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to protect the children in their trust.â&#x20AC;? In response, Foley has played his own childhood-innocence card. He claims a priest molested him, propelling him into a life of homosexual pedophilia. At this writing, the congressman has announced heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d reveal the miscreantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;part of the healing process,â&#x20AC;? his lawyer notes, along with Foleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treatment for alcoholism. Hours later, the priest, one Anthony Merciera, came forward, contending he and the boy went skinny-dipping together, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;brothersâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nothing more. Another former altar boy joined in, revealing that he and Foley used to hang out at the apartment of the priest, who let them drink and smoke. The priest admits he might have been disinhibited by alcohol problems of his own . . . and the saga continues. Let us begin by granting the obvious: Like the party to which he belongs, this particular member from Florida is a slimebucket of obfuscation and hypocrisy. But does anybody really think the Foley Affair is about protecting children? Is child the correct term for the subspecies of preternaturally ambitious 16- and 17-yearold humans who claw their way to Washington in order to learn how to become Dennis Hastert or Hillary Clinton; who, according to those formerly in their places, also take advantage of their sojourn in Our Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital to par-tay? Much blame for the complete meanâ&#x20AC;&#x153;Poli Psyâ&#x20AC;? is a monthly column that can also be read on To reach Judith Levine, email

ing-ectomy of the words child and protection must be assigned to the likes of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caucuses; former House CoChair Mark Foley was one of their most zealous leaders. Over the years, these folks have built a fortress of â&#x20AC;&#x153;child-protectiveâ&#x20AC;? crime legislation that has steadily increased the age at which a person is legally considered a child â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from 12 to 18, for instance, in child-pornography law. The caucuses have worked with the National Center on Missing and Exploited Children, an organization known for tossing around statistics on â&#x20AC;&#x153;child abductionsâ&#x20AC;? that fail to note that almost all the kids who go missing are actually teenage runaways â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or teenage â&#x20AC;&#x153;throwawaysâ&#x20AC;? whose parents have kicked them out. Such advocates also have a penchant for implying, incorrectly, that crimes against children tend to be sexual. As we know well, sex panics are a great way to sell Internet censorship, mandatory minima and other politically profitable law-andorder legislation. A triumphal moment for these tactics, and for Foley himself, came this summer, just months before the emails hit the fan. The Adam Walsh Child Protection Act of 2006 greatly expands the federal sex-offender registry and compels states to expand theirs. It also encourages civil commitment with new grants; institutes big, vague new areas of Internet surveillance; and hardens the penalties for sex crimes against children to include everything short of extraordinary rendition. An interesting footnote is the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, inscribed â&#x20AC;&#x153;in recognition of John and RevĂŠ Walsh on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Adam Walshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abduction and murder.â&#x20AC;? John Walsh owned a hotel management business in Hollywood, Florida, in 1981 when his 6-year-old son was killed. His PR says the father â&#x20AC;&#x153;turned his grief â&#x20AC;? into a full-time fight for child victims. A less generous way of putting it is that Walsh launched a career by spreading the rumor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most explicitly in his book Tears of Rage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murderer was a pedophile. The crusade spurred the creation of the missing-and-

exploited children’s center, and landed Walsh the job of hosting Fox TV’s “America’s Most Wanted.” From that exalted position he has cultivated friends in high places, including Mark Foley, to push for tougher sex-offender laws. There’s a little problem, however. According to detectives who worked on the stillunsolved case, there has never

authorities they thought would do something about it. No, Foley is something far less press-worthy: He is a sexual harasser — a person who uses his position of power in a workplace or other institution to extract sexual favors from a subordinate. Why don’t we call him that? One reason, no doubt, is that Nancy Pelosi and the other Democratic women know sexu-

Mark Foley is a sexual harasser — a person who uses his position of institutional power to extract sexual favors from a subordinate. Why don’t we call him that? been either suspicion or evidence of sex in Adam’s murder. But never mind. There is little evidence that most of the provisions of HR 4472 do anything to prevent crimes against children. In fact, some of the provisions are likely to hurt them. For purposes of protection, the law defines a minor as anyone under the age of 18. In some states, though, anyone under the age of consent who has sex with anyone else under the age of consent is committing a crime. On several states’ sex-offender registry websites you can see the smooth faces of prepubescent “sex offenders.” In fact, the Adam Walsh Act now requires the registration of juveniles as young as 14 who have ever been convicted or adjudicated even for consensual sexual activity with another minor under the age of 13. These “offenders” must produce DNA samples, submit to electronic monitoring and, if the violation was a second offense or the partner was younger than 12, remain registered and monitored for life. Meanwhile, back in the House, Ethics Committee members are trying to decide if Maf54 broke the law by IMing the pages (in some cases with mutual enjoyment) about masturbation and boxer shorts. Under his own law, which criminalizes “the use of the Internet to facilitate or commit a crime against a minor,” he might be a felon. If he had actual sex with them, however — which he denies — he could be acting within the law. The age of consent in Washington, D.C., is 16. As I said, the words child and protection lose all meaning. Still, Mark Foley is no child molester — and not just because of those consent-implying lols from some of his IM buddies. After all, for each cheerful participant, there were God-knows-how-many who deleted the drooly messages in disgust, or reported Foley to

al harassment is not taken seriously in Washington. They remember Anita Hill. If a Supreme Court nominee could get away with it, who’d care about a piss-ant Florida rep? More important, though, calling Foley’s misconduct sexual harassment would be saying something about the young people on whom he hit. The object of sexual harassment is assumed to be an adult. She has a sex life, but does not want to share it with the line foreman or the 15 other men in her department. If she has not made her objections clear, it’s because she fears losing a raise or a job or becoming the victim of further retribution, including violence. Harassment is a psychological or physical trespass on the sexual privacy and equality of a citizenworker. Molestation, on the other hand, is a theft of the alleged sexual innocence of a child. Sexual harassment is a violation of rights. By law and custom, children have no rights, least of all sexual ones. This Congress has just passed the billion-dollar mark in appropriations for abstinence-only education. Its message: that minors are not — and should not be — sexual. While more than one congressional member has surely been piqued by the sexual-object possibilities of the nubile messengers in their midst, they are ideologically unable to view these youngsters as sexual subjects — least of all, as willing gay sexual subjects. If they — or we — can’t recognize teenagers’ right to say yes, we have little choice but to “protect” them by saying no on their behalf, whether they want us to or not. Not that I give a fig for Mark Foley. But he is one more casualty of the war on teen sexuality. The public has made a psychopath of a man who is at best a jerk and a hypocrite and, at worse, the perpetrator of the serious crime of sexual harassment. �

Doubting Thomas White House Press Corps dean Helen Thomas on giving presidents hell


CATHY RESMER “Where Is the Outrage in This Country?” a talk by Helen Thomas sponsored by Vermont Woman magazine. Sheraton Hotel, South Burlington, October 29, 2 p.m. $25. Info, 861-6200.

or Helen Thomas, “Question Authority” is not just a bumper-sticker slogan; it’s her job description. As a member of the White House Press Corps since 1961, she’s grilled nine American presidents — first as the White House Bureau Chief for wire service United Press International, and now as a syndicated columnist for Hearst Newspapers, which hired her after she left UPI in 2000. Thomas was a pioneer when she started out in the male-dominated biz; the 86-year-old Washington, D.C., resident was the first female member — and later, the first woman president — of the White House Correspondents Association. She was the lone lady reporter on Richard Nixon’s historic China trip in 1972. Since becoming a columnist, Thomas has been free to express her liberal political opinions, and she doesn’t hold back; she has called President Bush the worst president ever, and has been sharply critical of the media for not asking tougher questions in the run-up to the war in Iraq. Her position is clear from the title page of her fourth book, Watchdogs of Democracy? The Waning Washington Press Corps and How It Has Failed the Public. Her upcoming address in South Burlington is entitled, “Where Is the Outrage in This Country?” Thomas drew praise from Iraq war critics after a press conference last March, during which she pushed Bush to explain why he really went to war. Here’s a partial transcript of their exchange, from the White House website: HELEN THOMAS: I’d like to ask you, Mr. President, your decision to invade Iraq has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis, wounds of Americans and Iraqis for a lifetime. Every reason given, publicly, at least, has turned out not to be true. My question is, why did you really want to go to war? From the moment you stepped into the White House, from your Cabinet — your Cabinet officers, intelligence people, and so forth — what was your real reason? You have said it wasn’t oil — quest of oil, it hasn’t been Israel, or anything else. What was it? PRESIDENT BUSH: I think your premise — in all due respect to your question and to you as a lifelong journalist — is that — I didn’t want war. To assume I wanted war is just flat wrong, Helen, in all due respect — HT: Everything — PB: Hold on for a second, please. HT: Everything I’ve heard — PB: Excuse me, excuse me. No president

wants war. Everything you may have heard is that, but it’s just simply not true. My attitude about the defense of this country changed on September the 11th. We — when we got attacked, I vowed then and there to use every asset at my disposal to protect the American people. Our foreign policy changed on that day, Helen. You know, we used to think we were secure because of oceans and previous diplomacy. But we realized on September the 11th, 2001, that killers

could destroy innocent life. And I’m never going to forget it. And I’m never going to forget the vow I made to the American people that we will do everything in our power to protect our people. Part of that meant to make sure that we didn’t allow people to provide safe haven to an enemy. And that’s why I went into Iraq — hold on for a second — HT: They didn’t do anything to you, or to our country.

PB: Look — excuse me for a second, please. Excuse me for a second. They did. The Taliban provided safe haven for al Qaeda. That’s where al Qaeda trained — HT: I’m talking about Iraq — PB: Helen, excuse me. That’s where — Afghanistan provided safe haven for al Qaeda. That’s where they trained . . . I also saw a threat in Iraq. I was hoping to solve this problem diplomati-

very annoying.” The conversation went uphill from there. SEVEN DAYS: You started your career in journalism in 1942. As a female reporter who works for a newspaper owned and run by two women, I’m curious — how was the work environment different for women back then?

They should be ashamed of themselves, really. Not for attacking me, but for not standing up for innocent people who are being killed every day. HELEN THOMAS

And when he chose to deny inspectors, when he chose not to disclose, then I had the difficult decision to make to remove him. And we did, and the world is safer for it. Comedian Stephen Colbert paid tribute to Thomas in April at the Washington Correspondents Dinner; Bush was among the guests. In his roast, which made the email and YouTube rounds, Colbert joked that he was planning to apply for the job of White House press secretary, then proceeded to show an “audition tape” of himself in the role. Thomas plays a diminutive but determined scribe who confronts Colbert with a tough Iraq question, then chases him into a parking garage, and finally traps him in a limo, in order to get a response out of him. But while she makes her living by posing uncomfortable queries, there are a few that Thomas herself prefers not to answer. If you want to make her testy, inquire about her age. “I’m getting sick and tired of that,” she says. “It’s very, very judgmental. I read a story, and the man never has an age, but I always have mine. I’m sorry, it’s

HELEN THOMAS: Well, I think the fact that you’re working for two women obviously shows that it has changed. It was a man’s world, no question about it. If a woman applied for a newspaper job, she usually would be shunted to what was then the society pages, then became family and style. There were some women for 150 years writing hard news. But nevertheless, most of the jobs for real tough reporting were given to men. SD: You were eventually named an officer of the National Press Club, but I’ve heard that when you started out in the business, women weren’t allowed to be members. HT: We didn’t get in, really, until 1971, when they were down on their dues financially. It wasn’t a matter of great principle. All the clubs in this town were closed to women. There was a Women’s National Press Club, which was established mainly to offset that. But we had to demonstrate, picket, appeal to the government officials that they should not let a visiting head of state speak at a >> 27A

what’s going on in the world every day. Education every day. That’s what journalism is.

SD: Thanks for doing all that work. HT: I was very selfishly motivated, believe me. It was a cabal. Everybody knew the injustice.

SD: You’ve criticized the press corps for not challenging the president — HT: Absolutely.

SD: You began covering the White House during JKF’s presidency in 1961. What does covering the White House entail?

SD: But I read White House press conference transcripts, and they often strike me as combative. There’s a lot of back and forth, with either the press secretary or the president.

people who are being killed every day. SD: Since then you’ve become a hero to many people angry about the war, and about the way the country is being run. I think they wish they could question the president like that. HT: I hope so. I want people to get out of their passivity. Their silence is deafening. If their voices are raised, we might not be killing so many people.

They know they’ve fallen on their face. Thousands are dead, and nobody can explain why. We invaded a country that did nothing to us. I don’t know how they can have that on their conscience. HELEN THOMAS

HT: We have two press briefings daily. One is called a gaggle, which is early in the morning, lasts about 15 minutes. Lays out the president’s day, and we ask some questions. Then a major briefing is around 12:30 in the afternoon. Usually televised. Press conferences are on their own volition. We never know when it’s going to happen. SD: George W. Bush has had fewer press conferences than past presidents, right? HT: Yes. He doesn’t like ’em. No president really likes a press conference. The whole idea of being quizzed and interrogated, when they think they’re president, you know, ‘Who are you to ask me?’ The thing is, this one in particular certainly doesn’t like press conferences. He doesn’t take follow-ups, which is very bad. SD: Your role at press conferences has changed over the years. HT: I was with the wire service — UPI and AP got the first two questions, by tradition. They’ve been there since before the advent of television. And now I’m a columnist, and so I just take my chances. SD: They rarely call on you now. Is that because you’re a columnist now, or because they don’t like you? HT: They don’t like me. Who cares? I never went into this profession to be liked. Why would I? I went in for my own reasons. SD: Such as? HT: To keep the people informed. You cannot have a democracy without an informed people. To fulfill my own ambition. Nosiness. Finding out

That process doesn’t often make it into newspaper stories. Why is it important? HT: We should be asking tougher questions which they don’t want to answer. They prepare themselves with automatic, reflex answers to clear their names. But telling the truth is very, very difficult in government or anything else. It’s our job to try to find out the truth. SD: You’ve certainly asked some tough questions, the most famous being the time you badgered the president to tell you why he went to war in Iraq. A number of right-wing commentators vilified you after that exchange. Don Imus said, “That old bag should shut up and get out. I’m sick of her.” Bill O’Reilly said, “I would have laid into that woman, and I don’t care how old she is. I would have laid her out.” Are you afraid of these guys coming after you? HT: [laughs] Hell, no. They’re imbeciles. SD: Why are they so angry with you? HT: I think they’re so far to the right that they obviously see me as the opposite side. I’m a liberal. I’ll be a liberal for the rest of my life. I was born a liberal. And they can’t stand it. They know they’ve fallen on their face. Thousands are dead, and nobody can explain why. We invaded a country that did nothing to us. I don’t know how they can have that on their conscience. They should be ashamed of themselves, really. Not for attacking me, but for not standing up for innocent

SD: It’s a real privilege to be able to sit in that briefing room and ask questions. But I guess it shouldn’t be a privilege to question government in a democracy. HT: It’s our right. But it is a privilege to ask the president a question, because [it’s his decision] whether he’s going to call on you or not. And the very fact that they avoid the tough questions — how can a president be a president and not be able to deal with the issues, explain himself? SD: Whenever I see President Bush answer questions — the back-andforth kind of questions, not the ones where he’s giving a canned answer — I’m often surprised by how inarticulate he is. HT: Angry, mostly. He’s angry. He’s a very angry man. The fact that you might even challenge him when he has such a sense of self-righteousness. SD: You’ve covered some interesting times. Any favorite stories? HT: I cover history every day. It’s my cliché answer, but it’s the truth. I’ve been here since Kennedy, so you can imagine what’s happened in this panorama since 1961. Assassination of a president, resignation of a president for the first time in history, scandals — rampant scandals — watching fascinating people aspire to power and fall down on the job when they reach the top of the mark. SD: Any plans to retire? HT: If I did, would I be here talking to you? Why in the hell should I? �

“It’s been one nightmare after another.” SANDI SHUM, WHISPERING PINES RESIDENT

home alone Why has everyone abandoned the residents of Whispering Pines trailer park? STORY: KEN PICARD IMAGES: JORDAN SILVERMAN

he hand-painted sign on the front door of Sandi Shum’s mobile home reads, “This house protected by angels.” If that’s the case, heaven’s little helpers are flying solo on this mission. Shum, 50, lives alone in her trailer in a wooded corner of Whispering Pines, a small mobile home park on Route 103 in North Clarendon. Shum, a former machinist in Rutland, was injured on the job in 1991 when part of a jet engine she was assembling severed her wrist. She underwent reconstructive surgery but has been permanently disabled ever since. Shum moved into Whispering Pines in 1995 because, like many of the park’s residents, it was the only housing she could afford. Her 40-year-old trailer isn’t much to look at from the outside, but Shum has done her best to make the interior feel warm and homey. That’s no easy task in a house that frequently stinks of mold, mildew and swamp gas. Several years ago, a tree limb fell through her roof. Today, the ceiling along the trailer’s westerly wall is a veritable roadmap of water stains. She’s had to jury-rig a brace to hold up the ceiling. Meanwhile, the backside of the trailer sags due to the soggy, uneven ground. Apparently Whispering Pines, which opened in 1974, was built on a combination of wetlands and landfill. Shum has an afternoon’s worth of horror stories about other problems at the park. She has photos dating back to the winter of 1995, when icy pools of septic


water formed in her backyard and beneath her trailer. In the summer of 1996, she stood up from a lawn chair and sank kneedeep into a sinkhole. In 1997, raw sewage backed up into her bathtub and ran down the hall. Even after the house was cleaned, the sewer gases venting into her trailer were so noxious, she had to move into a nearby hotel for more than a year. Only later did she learn that a perforated sewer pipe from a neighboring trailer ran right under her living room. “It’s been one nightmare after another,” she says, choking back tears. Other Whispering Pines residents have had similar troubles. For years, tenants have complained to anyone who would listen about electrical brownouts, water outages, unfilled potholes and sinking lots. One of their biggest concerns, they say, is their water. Oftentimes it smells foul, with sediment that clogs their toilets and ruins their washing machines. Chlorine levels fluctuate between nonexistent to overpowering. Complicating the picture is the fact that the park’s owner, J.P. Carrara and Sons, also owns a neighboring dolomite quarry, which, until last year, was routinely using explosives to extract rock. Besides the nuisances created by the blasting, some neighbors charge that all these seismic disturbances have damaged their trailers, water pipes and septic lines. Of greater concern, residents say, is the possibility that the quarry operation is doing further harm to the park’s already compromised groundwater. In 1990, leak-

ing underground storage tanks were discovered at a nearby Honda dealership and general store, which contaminated the aquifer with the petroleum additive MTBE. Even at low concentrations, MTBE makes water smell and taste like turpentine. At higher concentrations, MTBE is suspected to cause a number of health problems, though its toxicity to humans is unknown. This in a town where, since 2003, residents have been concerned about unusually high rates of leukemia and other cancer. Since 1990, the state of Vermont has been providing the residents of Whispering Pines free bottled water and operating its water-filtration system — at an estimated cost of $1 million to date. But despite continuing problems, the state has never declared the water unsafe to drink. Residents continue to use it for cleaning, bathing and washing dishes. If Vermont had a “Lemon Law” to cover mobile home parks, Whispering Pines would be a shoo-in. “We’re getting to the point where enough is enough,” says Mike Klopchin, chairman of the Clarendon Select Board and its longestserving member. “I’m a Vietnam veteran and I can tell you this: I’ve seen better living conditions in poor parts of Vietnam than exist in that trailer park.” Admittedly, many of the problems at Whispering Pines are classic landlord-tenant disputes that might have been resolved years ago through litigation. However, nearly all the residents of the park are lowor moderate-income people who say they have neither the time nor the money to spend battling their wealthy landlord in court. Instead, since August 2005 most of the tenants who haven’t already moved — that is, five of the nine remaining — have been withholding their rent. Instead, they’re paying into an escrow account. Repeated phone calls to J.P. Carrara and Sons for its side of this story were not

returned. As one longtime resident of Clarendon noted, the Carraras rarely, if ever, comment for news stories about Whispering Pines. Frustrations don’t lie solely with the Carraras, according to the residents who agreed to talk to Seven Days, but also with the various state agencies they feel have abandoned them. Public records dating back to 1995, when the Carraras bought the park, show that state officials have long been aware of resident grievances and repeatedly cited the park’s owner for water-quality violations. Nevertheless, the tenants contend that no one at the state level has ever taken a thorough and comprehensive look at their problems and tried to find a longlasting solution. All of which raises some troubling questions: In a state that touts its reputation for strict environmental and consumer-protection laws, how could such serious problems be allowed to fester for so long? What does it say about Vermont’s commitment to affordable housing when one of its most affordable housing options — mobile home parks — seem to lack effective governmental oversight and enforcement to keep them safe and habitable? In short, who’s supposed to be looking out for the residents of Whispering MARTHA LAJOIE Pines? Unfortunately, it’s much easier to point fingers than to find satisfactory answers. Even the small number of it would cost to move her 32-year-old trailer — assuming it could be moved at tenants who still live in Whispering Pines all.

and had to remove them each day with a bucket and pail. “There’s always been problems here,” says Lajoie. “They say that the blasting doesn’t do it, but I don’t think I’m buying that. When this place goes shake, rattle and roll, don’t tell me the pipes underground aren’t shaking, rattling and rolling with it.” Eventually, the Carraras fixed Lajoie’s pipes. Today, she says her only outstanding issue with the landlord is the quality of her water — a test done several weeks ago found coliform bacteria in her house. It

fewer than 10 hook-ups, or 25 residents, living in the park. As a result, Whispering Pines now falls below the DEC’s regulatory threshold and has been “de-listed” as a public water system. In effect, because two residents moved out, the state can no longer guarantee the safety of the water. Tim Raymond is the water systems manager for the DEC’s Water Supply Division. Raymond is familiar with residents’ concerns at Whispering Pines; he’s dealt with them for years and says he’s not surprised the place still has “operational difficulties.” Raymond says it’s “not typical” for a mobile home park to rack up that many water-quality violations, even over an eight-year period. However, he says that most of the problems didn’t threaten the health of residents. “From my perspective, you need to make a distinction between a public-health risk — meaning the water you’re For more than receiving can’t be utilized a year, resident because it’s unsafe — and the operational complicaMartha Lajoie tions of the system that are truly driving you crazy,” he couldn’t flush says.

Callahan’s frustration is understandable. In 1998, he and his wife Carol, then both 25, moved into Whispering Pines. The following year, they bought a brand-new mobile home. Carol works in the elementary school cafeteria in Clarendon; Kevin is currently receiving Workers’ Compensation due to an injury he suffered working at a local propane company. The couple shares a mobile home with their two children. Like other park residents, the Callahans have had their share of troubles with the water and wastewater. During their first summer in Whispering Pines, they went days without water when the park’s well ran dry. Since then, they’ve had water that smells “like a swamp”; other days the chlorine level is strong enough to bleach their clothes. Then, in 2000, the family’s septic problems began in earnest. “I could flush my toilet and have a geyser in my front yard,” Kevin Callahan recalls. After repeated complaints to the landlord went unattended — video of their septic woes even made the local TV news in 2003 — Callahan says he called the state, which sent a truck to his home to inspect the problem. “This guy came out and stuck a stick in it, smelled it and said, ‘Yup, that’s the sewer,’” Callahan recalls. “Then, he and his buddy got back in the truck, drove away and we never heard from them again.” Far more disconcerting to the Callahans have been their health problems, which they fear may be due to the park’s persistent

These include asthma, rashes, cysts, endometriosis and other unexplained illnesses. “It’s funny,” Carol Callahan says. “If you leave here for a couple of days, you feel fantastic. And then when you come back, it’s kind of like having a cold, but at the same time it’s like you’re depressed.” Ironically, she doesn’t blame the Carraras entirely for their troubles. “I’m not saying I agree with everything the landlord has done,” Carol Callahan says. “But I don’t think it’s fair to always put the fault on him. “My opinion? I think the state should close this park,” she adds. “It’s old, it’s outlived its life, you’ve got contamination on one side and a quarry on the other side. No matter what that man [Carrara] does, it’s always going to have problems.” The Callahans’ situation improved significantly when Clarendon Public Health Officer Roxanne Phelps got involved. Appointed to her post in 2003, Phelps became interested in Whispering Pines after hearing reports that children in the park were suffering from respiratory problems such as lung infections, asthma and persistent colds. In August 2005, Phelps and fellow

health officer Chuck Davis inspected the park and identified 12 health and safety violations, some of which Phelps called “life-threatening.” Within 48 hours, Phelps arranged a meeting with the Carraras, the tenants and the DEC to get those problems fixed. At one point during the meeting, the Carraras’ attorney insisted that the park’s water was safe. So Phelps handed him a glass of water from the Callahans’ tap and asked him to drink it. He refused. For the residents of Whispering Pines, it was a scene right out of the movie Erin Brockovich. That said, there’s only so much that a part-time town health officer can do on a limited budget. Those familiar with the case say it’s going to take a lot more firepower to get the residents’ problems resolved. “Just find me a brick wall and I’ll bang my head against it until the blood comes out, and maybe somebody will pay attention. That’s how these people feel,” says Annette Smith of the nonprofit group Vermonters for a Clean Environment (VCE). “I don’t know what the answer is, but clearly, it’s not state government.”

Smith is an environmental activist who’s been working with the tenants of Whispering Pines since 2003. Her involvement with this case is extensive; most recently, she’s been helping them fight an Act 250 permit request by J.P. Carrara and Sons to deepen their quarry by another 105 feet. The quarry, Smith contends, is “an immensely complicating factor” in the problems plaguing the park. According to court papers filed by VCE, J.P. Carrara and Sons has a history of ignoring state environmental regulations that dates back to the mid1980s. Back then, the proposed quarry site was an important deer habitat that was illegally clear-cut, in violation of Act 250, VCE contends. Vermont Fish and Wildlife opposed the quarry’s land-use permit, but it was eventually granted after the company agreed to set aside another parcel of deer habitat eight miles away. As early as 1994 Smith says that neighbors suspected the quarry’s blasting was causing damage to the aquifer — that year, one neighbor’s well ran dry — and potentially making the MTBE contamination worse. Those problems persist to this

day, Smith says — though it’s worth noting that the quarry has not been operating for the last year due in part to the neighbor’s concerns. Then why in the course of Act 250 hearings last spring would an attorney for the Agency of Natural Resources ask to throw out of evidence the entire history of water-supply violations by J.P. Carrara and Sons? His argument: Those were landlord-tenant matters that had nothing to do with the pending permit request. “The reality is, you’ve got a contaminated aquifer, you’ve got a clear interconnection between the quarry and the aquifer, you don’t know where the MTBE is except there could be pockets of it spread all around,” Smith says, “and the state has no problem with this.” In fact, residents learned this May that the air stripper, which is supposed to protect them from MTBE exposure, hadn’t been working properly since January. In Smith’s view, that means the residents were potentially exposed to dangerous levels of MTBE for at least four months. Not so, says Bob Haslam, environmental analyst with the DEC’s Waste Management Division. As Haslam explains, the MTBE “overwhelmed the system temporarily and a tiny amount got through. . . Every now and then you get these anomalous spikes. It’s just the nature of the beast.” Haslam insists the residents were never at any risk. As he puts it, “This treatment system is very, very reliable. It’s a well-

Alpert is a former federal prosecutor whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sued the oil industry for MTBE contamination in other states. According to him, the technology currently being used to protect the residents of Whispering Pines is woefully inadequate to protect their health. In his opinion, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something is seriously wrong in the state of Vermont if regulators are allowing people to drink and bathe in water that looks and smells like that.â&#x20AC;? After Clarendon spent more than $5000 on a public health officer to work on Whispering Pines, and with tenants still not paying their rent to the Carraras, the town asked Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney general to intervene. Assistant Attorney General Wendy Morgan is handling the case. After conversations with the residents, the Carrarasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorney and the various state agencies, Morgan determined that the current problems at Whispering Pines â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rise to the level of violations that would cause us to bring a court action or close the park.â&#x20AC;? Morgan explains that she

If what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to achieve is safe and habitable housing for lowand moderate-income people, then what happened in the past shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ignored, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to cause us to bring an action.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear how the troubles at Whispering Pines will ever be resolved. The Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity has a mobile home advocacy project, but it cannot bring legal action, only advise tenants of their rights. The Rutland County Community Land Trust has looked into creating another mobile home park in the area to accommodate Whispering Pines residents. However, two other local parks recently closed, giving those residents first priority. Community Development Block Grants sometimes can be used to help relocate trailer park residents. But an application filed for Whispering Pines was denied, since the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner has never filed a notice for closure. As Smith puts it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This case brings you head-on into the real problem of low-income housing in Vermont.â&#x20AC;? These days, she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t optimistic.

only looked at current conditions in the park, not past complaints or violations. Although she recognizes that landlordtenant issues still need to be resolved, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her belief that there are none outstanding that compromise public safety or habitability . As such, she says, the residents no longer have reason to withhold their rent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The residents are frustrated, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame anybody for being frustrated,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question for us is, what are we

Meanwhile, a ruling on the Act 250 permit request to expand the quarry is expected any day. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approved, the quarry will likely resume blasting as soon as possible.

Wind Up Mouse Book Review: The Second Mouse by Archer Mayor

A bit of a psycho and a bit of a fascist, ex-biker Mel Martin uses his best friend Ellis Robbinson as muscle and his wife Nancy as getaway driver in schemes that range from mugging a fireman for bingo cash to stealing M16s from the National Guard. Weary of Mel’s bullying, Ellis and Nancy turn to each other, first for sexual solace and then for a way out of the morass into which Mel is leading them. Soon they’re wondering if there’s a way to frame Mel as a terrorist, so the Department of Homeland


manhood. Anyone not fitting the mold was probably either weak-willed or gay.” Ellis’s loving relationship with his cancer-ridden mother, who abandoned him as a child, adds a dimension of pathos to his character. Fine, but what does all this have to do with Joe Gunther? For more than 100 pages, all that appears to connect Joe’s current case with Mel Martin and his crew is a town. Gunther is investigating the seemingly natural death of Michelle Fisher, a recovering alcoholic who lived alone in a converted schoolhouse in Wilmington. The house belongs to the father of Fisher’s recently deceased boyfriend, an unsavory penny-pincher who was itching to evict her. Like the Martins, the landlord happens to live in Bennington, a county that Mayor tells us “regarded itself as Vermont’s black hole.” When Joe goes on the road to interview the landlord, the author adds Bennington to his gallery of Vermont town portraits. Mayor’s urban descriptions are masterpieces of observation and economy: In a few, well-crafted sentences, he shows us what makes a place tick. By contrast, the plot of The Second Mouse is all over the place. While Mel Martin nurses aspirations of becoming southern Vermont’s version of Scarface, Gunther is off on a sidequest that feels a lot like a tangent. To get access to Michelle Fisher’s autopsy results, he has to delve into the problems of Chief Medical Examiner Beverly Hillstrom. Much like the new Fletcher Allen Medical Center where she works, the doctor finds herself compromised by the greed and fraud of others. For fans of the series, subplots like

In a few well-crafted sentences, Mayor shows us what makes a place tick. By contrast, the plot of The Second Mouse is all over the place. Security will “lock him up forever and not even give him a trial.” Ellis and Nancy aren’t too bright, but they are memorable characters. Mayor needs only a few deft strokes to flesh out these people who live on society’s twilit borders. For instance, we’re told that “Ellis worked to maintain the mental fog he trusted to cloud his better judgment.” Or that “In a world of loud men with demonstrative habits . . . Nancy had formed a habit of pegging such behavior to

this are worth the detour. It’s nice to see Hillstrom gain some dimensions beyond her usual chilly über-competence, and her interactions with Joe develop his character, too. But The Second Mouse is still a mystery novel, and one consistent requirement of the genre is that the pieces of plot eventually click into place. Sure, every ambitious mystery will have its dead ends and red herrings, just like a real murder investigation — life isn’t a jigsaw puzzle, or an

tive’s mind makes as it figures things out. In The Second Mouse, Mayor makes the necessary explanations but withholds that crucial moment from us, as if the mystery were almost beside the point. The plot elements amble toward one another and shake hands, but they never quite connect. Mayor also fails to make good on the delectable irony promised by the title. It’s explained by an epigraph he attributes to his daughter: “The early bird may get the worm, but the sec-

ond mouse gets the cheese.” That clever chestnut leads us to expect a turnabout in which one character’s downfall is another’s windfall — better to be the second mouse to encounter the trap. But nobody seems to profit from the events of The Second Mouse — not Michelle Fisher, not hapless Ellis and Nancy, and not Joe Gunther, who’s simply trying to keep his life on an even keel as he contemplates more examples of man’s inhumanity to man. As for the readers, we’re treated to some fine description and characterization — but also to loads of exposition and the occasional clunker cliché. (“I miss us,” Joe’s ex-lover tells him.) Given the darkness of Mayor’s recent books, maybe it’s time he stopped using the whodunit format and tried his hand at a more openended literary noir — with a protagonist who isn’t Joe Gunther. The real irony of this novel is that no one seems to get the cheese. m

Haunted Hotel?

The end is near for the crumbling ruins of a historic Sudbury resort



tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late to save Hyde Manor. For more than 150 years, the distinguished Sudbury establishment catered to tourists, first as a tavern, then as a seasonal summertime resort. But it closed for good in the 1970s, and today Hyde Manorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature fourstory hotel building looks more like a haunted house than an erstwhile B&B. Portions of the roof have already caved; the lavish dining room has vanished in an undistinguished heap of rotted beams. The wide wooden porch has mostly disappeared, leaving the front of the building dangling above a slight rocky slope. The façade seems to slump forward, toward Route 30 below. It looks as if it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long before the whole thing comes tumbling down. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever driven between Middlebury and Hubbardton, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve surely spotted this strange Italianate structure and the cluster of smaller buildings surrounding it. Maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve slowed to get a better look. The spread certainly seems out of place among the farms and trailers and summer camps surrounding nearby Lake Hortonia. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother looking for a sign or a historical marker. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one. The current owners â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a family that ran the hotel for the last decade of its life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; still live on the grounds and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eager to draw attention to the deteriorating relic. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to fix it up, and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten around to tearing it down. Yet. So for now Hyde Manor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at once creepy and regal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; begs the question: What happened here? The answer begins to reveal itself in a basement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at the University of Vermont. Buried in the stacks of the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subterranean Special Collections are two documents that trace the history of the Sudbury site â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an award-winning undergraduate research paper and a 105-yearold promotional booklet for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hyde Manor in the lake and mountain region of Vermont.â&#x20AC;? Steve Sgorbati was a student at Castleton State College when he wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hyde Manor: the Early Yearsâ&#x20AC;? in 1990. It won the Nuquist Award for Vermont historical research by an undergraduate in 1991. Today Sgorbati happens to be the Sudbury Town Clerk. He says he chose his topic because he was curious about the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I tried to find out about it, nobody knew, or I got conflicting information,â&#x20AC;? he

recalls. Sgorbati tracked down town records and other historical accounts to piece together his timeline, which begins with Millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern, the first watering hole on the site, established in 1798. The tavern sat along a stagecoach route, which is how Pitt Hyde happened upon it. Hyde owned a stage line that carted mail and passengers between MontrĂŠal and Albany. He bought the tavern and 47.5 surrounding acres in 1801. In 1805, the stage road was improved,

and transformed into the Hubbardton Turnpike. The improved portion ended at Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern, which proved a fortuitous location. Pitt Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son James eventually took over the operation and began holding all-night Yankee balls. By mid-century, the establishment had become Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hotel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a retrospective look back on Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s during the 1850s,â&#x20AC;? Sgorbati writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the local newspaper claimed in 1870 that Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hotel was the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;favorite resort of this section of Vermont for parties of pleasure.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t popular just among locals. New railroad stations nearby and better water access via a canal at Whitehall, New

York, made the site increasingly accessible to wealthy tourists in the mid-1800s. Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proximity to clear mountain springs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one runs right through the center of the property â&#x20AC;&#x201D; attracted city dwellers in search of a respite from the crowded, dirty urban centers of New York and Philadelphia. In 1850, Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation as a destination spot got a boost from historian Benson Lossing, who visited the hotel, and mentions it in The Field Guide to the American Revolution. He writes: As usual, every delicacy of the season was upon the table. Indeed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a table equaled to Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? has become a proverbial expression of praise among tourists, for it is his justifiable boast that he spreads the choicest repasts that are given between MontrĂŠal and New Orleans. His beautifully embowered mansion is at the base of the Green Mountains, near the margin of a charming lake, on the borders of a rich valley, about twelve miles East of Lake Champlain, and a more delightful summer retreat cannot well be imagined. When a fire destroyed the structure in 1862, the Hydes erected the hotel that still stands today. Sgorbatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment of the construction emphasizes its magnitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The place looks as though someone moved one of the Gold Rush hotels of San Francisco or Dawson, Alaska,â&#x20AC;? he writes,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;and dropped it among the Sudbury farms, expecting another boomtown in Rutland County.â&#x20AC;? In fact, the resort grew in popularity in the antebellum years. By the turn of the century, the owners, now led by Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son Arunah, or A.W., Hyde, had built additions to what became known as Hyde Manor. They expanded its capacity to 300 guests, or more than half the population of Sudbury. They also added other buildings, such as the Casino, which housed a stage for live performances; and the Den, a small, circular building with a dramatically peaked roof, where the men could retire for a game of cards. A long, narrow Amusement Hall was also apparently an attraction. The 1901 promotional booklet features photos of all of these amenities, as well as flowery text touting their charms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Amusement Hall, an important factor to the enjoyment of many of the guests, is equipped with Narragansett Standard Alleys, Brunswick Pool and Billiard Tables, all in perfect condition; [and] a barber shop and dark room,â&#x20AC;? reads the copy. Other photos from the booklet show guests in suits and dresses picnicking, rid>> 36A

The text also refers to the Manorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearby 700acre farm, and its property on Lake Hortonia. Because the journey to rural Vermont was still fairly arduous, visitors often stayed for a week, a month or more. Many families, some of whom traveled from as far as Los Angeles, remained for the entire season, from June until October. Sgorbati explains that repeat visitors got to know one another, and looked forward to seeing each other every summer. So what changed? Neither the promotional booklet nor Sgorbatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper offers any answers; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no official documentation of Hyde Manorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touristic turns after the end of the 19th century. In his paper, Sgorbati alludes to a sequel, but 16 years later itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not available. Sgorbati confirms that he did, in fact, continue his research, though he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t published his findings. He says the Hydes sold the property in 1962. Another family bought the place and briefly tried running it as a year-round resort â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a challenge, considering that the buildings arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t insulated. They installed a rope tow on the hill behind the hotel and bussed visiting skiers to Killington, but the winter biz was a bust, and they gave up in the 1970s. To understand what went wrong, Sgorbati tracked down one of the Hydes and conducted interviews with former guests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said it was a different era,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the Second World War, things really changed.â&#x20AC;? The increasing ease of airplane and automobile travel broadened travelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; options, and made long stays in one place unnecessary. Once visitors started coming for shorter stays, the entire culture of the resort broke down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The car really killed â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em,â&#x20AC;? Sgorbati observes. Holiday Inns, which began appearing in the

1950s, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help, either. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that point, people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want old-fashioned stuff,â&#x20AC;? Sgorbati says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted an elevator to carry them up to the floors.â&#x20AC;? The present owners, he says, could offer more insight. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather not. A family representative agreed to an interview and a tour of the property on the condition that their names be kept out of this story. The woman explains that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already overrun with curiosity seekers and trespassers, despite multiple â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep Outâ&#x20AC;? signs posted on the 400-acre property. Teenagers, hikers and vagrants sometimes camp out in the ramshackle old hotel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so afraid Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to go in there and find a body,â&#x20AC;? she says. The woman notes that the family has not abandoned the site. The family actually lived in the hotel until 12 years ago, at which point they moved into the former Amusement Hall. The bowling alley is still there, says the woman. They use it for storage. The woman says the family tried twice to convince historic-preservation agencies to help repair the hotel, to no avail. So she and her relatives are trying to restore the small, circular Den building; they recently patched the roof and repaired the foundation; and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve planted flowers and shrubs around their residence and at the foot of the drive. They also continue to mow the old golf course across the street, which now looks like just another farm. But the wooden Casino building, slanting perilously to one side, is headed for the scrap heap. As is the old hotel. Says the family spokeswoman, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing lasts forever.â&#x20AC;? ďż˝

Theater preview: Metamorphoses


agazine headlines promise to uncover the “myths” behind dating, dieting and other hot-button topics. Over time, the word has come to mean a false assumption — something to be debunked. But for more than 2000 STORY ELISABETH years, Greek myths have fired the Western imagination.

Today, many students and Johnson State adults don’t know a Greek god from College, a Greek olive.

In Metamorphoses, he retold ancient myths focusing on love, from the familial to the forbidden, as the primary agent of change. Sometimes love ennobled and endured; other times it destroyed. Chicago playwright Zimmerman — who is also a professor at Northwestern University and a 1998 MacArthur “genius grant” recipient — specializes in creating contemporary plays from historical and literary material, such as Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks and Marcel Proust’s novels. To stage a modern Metamorphoses, she adapted a handful of Ovid’s stories. Familiar characters include goldobsessed King Midas and doomed


lovers Orpheus and Eurydice. Lesser known are arrogant Erysichthon, stricken with hunger by Ceres for chopping down a sacred tree, and generous Baucis and Philemon, a poor couple who take in gods disguised as beggars after their wealthy neighbors have turned them away. The swift-moving play — one act, 80 minutes — opened just days after September 11, 2001, and became a surprise Broadway hit. The humor and pathos struck an elemental chord that proved cathartic for New York City during its darkest days. “The moment of metamorphoses is so excruciating, but then it can produce something new,” Zimmerman reflected in a 2002 PBS interview with Bill Moyers. “If you take the long view, we’ve suffered incredible disasters and transforming events, and yet story goes on, narrative goes on.” “Theater is imagination confronting the human condition,” says Weston’s Steve Stettler, who is producing and directing the play in Vermont. After its local run, the show hits the road, with performances in Johnson, Burlington and Randolph. Zimmerman set the action of Metamorphoses around a large pool of water. While the effect of this was “mesmerizing,” says Stettler, “the unusual experience of actors confronting real water sometimes pulled your focus from the actual story.” A portable pool proved impractical for touring anyway, so Stettler conjures liquid with props, lighting and sound effects. “We love shows like Metamorphoses,” he says, “where you have to bring your own imagination to it to see the whole picture.” Every year, the October play is also at the heart of Weston’s vibrant edu-

cational outreach programs. The offerings’ vigor and variety draw participants from across the state. A math teacher from Canaan, in the Northeast Kingdom, has attended the daylong workshops with scholars, trying to improve his school’s extracurricular drama program. Students from St. Albans have braved the three-hour bus ride, each way, for the school matinee. (The Flynn Center usually hosts a student matinee on the morning of Weston’s Burlington performance, but the theater was not available this year.) Demand for school-theater partnerships in northern Vermont may outstrip supply. Vermont Stage’s three school matinees of Woody Guthrie’s American Song, in late January, are already sold out — the FlynnSpace seats only 150. Weston’s programs serve about 3000 students annually, supported by grant sources ranging from the National Endowment for the Arts to Weston’s own Vermont Country Store. The programs’ ongoing success helps to ensure continued funding. Meanwhile, well-publicized fiscal struggles have kept major northern Vermont companies focused on survival. And schools often find arts programs lose out in budget battles. This fall there are two school matinees of Metamorphoses on the road (in Randolph and Keene, New Hampshire) and six in Weston, including one interpreted in American Sign Language. To help prepare students for seeing the play, teachers receive the script, an exhaustive study guide and invites to the spring workshop. A lively post-show “talkback” with the director and cast follows each matinee. After a performance last week, 7-12th graders from Ludlow

and Fair Haven queried cast members about how they change costumes so quickly (practice, and backstage helpers), which myths they like best (Baucis and Philemon is a favorite) and how long they’ve been rehearsing (just two-and-a-half weeks, but up to 12 hours a day). All seven actors play multiple roles, and they demonstrated the process of creating distinct voices and physical behaviors for each character. They encourage budding performers: All seven got their start in high school drama clubs. From its start in 1937, Weston has been led by “teacher-educators,” according to Stettler, who trained young artists alongside the pros. In 1988, leadership passed to producing directors Stettler, Malcolm Ewen and Tim Fort. They looked to move beyond the traditional summer stock model and bring “the broadest, most enriching series of theater-related productions and projects throughout the year to a wider audience.” As part of the expanded mission, Stettler continues, “It was essential that we build an education program that wasn’t just training young artists, but was in fact enriching the experience for the theatergoer.” Events for adults evolved along with those for students. For example, study guides are available to all patrons for every show. A winter discussion series encourages reading the plays before seeing them. Director’s talks and after-show talkbacks occur frequently throughout the season. “Our audiences have become more adventurous because we have included them in the process of the adventure,” says Stettler. The greatest concern, and challenge, is engaging “the younger gener-

9`^^\i@J9\kk\i comedy and camaraderie. “I think that’s something we can all take from it,” actress Susan Haefner remarked. Arts organizations often see school programs as tools to build future audiences. Education Director Rena Murman casts the net wider. “If Vermont wants to keep its young people, it has to be dynamic and it has to have things to make them want to stay here,” she says. Stettler himself first came to Weston as a college student. Black River literature teacher Colin McKaig thinks that acting out scenes from the modern Metamorphoses helped his students get more engaged with the myths. “I’m always on the search for making mythology more relevant,” he says, “To demonstrate to kids that it’s everywhere — it sort of crawls and seeps in and out of pop culture all the time.” The modern relevance of the stories surprised Green Mountain student Baker. “It’s amazing to see how these old myths, which have been around since forever . . . still apply to our lives today,” he says. In the play, Zimmerman frames just one tale overtly in the present. Sporting Ray-Bans and swim trunks, Phaeton reclines on a raft and tells a poolside therapist about his ill-fated attempt to borrow Dad’s car. Dad is Phoebus Apollo, a.k.a. The Sun, and his car is the chariot that drives the fiery orb across its appointed daily path. The boy ignores his father’s warnings that he can’t handle the horsepower, and the therapist spouts

ation, who are being exposed from the beginning to technology and not to the written word, the imagination, the live performance art,” Stettler says. “It’s incumbent upon those of us who believe in the magic of theater to make sure . . . that magic captures them early.” One of the most innovative programs, now in its fourth year, is called Page to Stage. High school classes rehearse scenes from the fall play and present them at the Weston Playhouse, using the professional set and lights. Teachers get training at the spring workshop, and artists work with the kids at their schools. After performance night, the students attend a matinee, and receive a final visit from Weston staff to debrief. A primary goal of Page to Stage is to encourage the students to “confront the plays from their own point of view,” Stettler says. “Then let them see our production not as the answer, but as another alternative.” Interpretations at performance night, held in Weston last Monday, were spirited and diverse. Three classes participated this year: English students from Twin Valley High School in Wilmington, a mythology class from Black River High School in Ludlow and drama students from Green Mountain Union High School in Chester. Five Midases took the stage. Twin Valley’s Emma Ferguson made a particularly elegant Queen Midas — her royal disdain glittered like her earrings.

he portrayed a patrician and preppy cocktail-hour King. “You could see through five different Midas performances how each group took it in a different way,” Baker, 17, reflects. “It inspires you to think of all these different ways that one can view something that’s written, when normally you think of something that’s written as being purely concrete.” Green Mountain’s Brianna Beehler, 17, says a classroom visit from a Weston artist helped her portray Hades as more sympathetic and forgiving towards Orpheus. “I had this image already in my head,” she says. “It made me go back to the book and then bring it to the stage in a different way.” The audience was packed with supportive parents and cheering classmates, but some of the most enthusiastic responses came from the professional cast. After the performances, the pros gave the teen thespians notes and suggestions. They praised specific choices of gesture and movement, joking about what they planned to steal. They seemed refreshed by the students’ overall spirit of

Jungian jargon deconstructing the ensuing disaster. The scene is hilarious and insightful. And Zimmerman’s influence lingers: She almost dares you to look at myths in a new way. Rereading Ovid’s original story of Phaeton and Apollo after seeing the play is a revelation. It brings to mind another green son, whose inexperience and hubris have brought terrible destruction. The father tries to dissuade his son from overreaching: What you want, my son, is dangerous; you ask for power beyond your strength and years . . . Suppose you had my chariot, could you keep the wheels steady, fight the spin of the world? The son can’t control the reins, and the suffering caused by his crash ricochets around the globe: The great cities perish, and their great walls; and nations perish with all their people: everything is ashes . . . we are hurled into ancient chaos. One myth down, another hundred or so to go. What else did Ovid know about the trouble his distant descendants would be making 2000 years later? �

Fresh Ground

I EXHIBIT “Coffee Culture Exhibit,” a juried show of works by artists from coffee-growing countries. Second Floor Gallery, Firehouse Center for the Visual Arts, Burlington. Through November 5.

ARTWORK “Panjachel with Lilies” by Felix

PHOTO Marc Awodey

n an unusual public/corporate anniversary exhibition at the Firehouse Center for Visual Arts, Burlington City Arts and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters are both celebrating 25 years of existence. The “Coffee Culture Exhibit,” running through November 5, presents art in several media along with ongoing film, lecture and coffee-tasting opportunities. Visitors can also see secondfloor displays about fair-trade coffee and documentary photographs from Latino coffee-farming towns. All of this is designated “Coffee Culture Month.” Most of the show’s works originate in Central America and Mexico, and the art-and-joe partnership is an aesthetically flavorful and robust brew. “Panjachel with Lilies” is among seven 5-by-7-inch canvasses by a Guatemalan artist identified only as Felix. Each of his little paintings focuses on the back of a woman with a long, dark braid, like Frida Kahlo with her back to the audience. She wears geometrically patterned blouses that are different in each scene. Lush modulations of white and golden yellow in the flower petals of “Panjachel with Lilies” contrast with the finely honed lines in Felix’s portrayal of textiles. “Patzicia with Lilies” positions the same centrally placed woman at a loom, cheerfully referencing a weaving tradition that predates sweatshops in Guatemala. Like that of textiles, Felix’s palette is reduced to a few bright hues, without much variation in intensity or value. Names in the pieces’ titles are taken from indigenous villages in the region from which Felix hails. Another single-moniker artist identified as Peigna offers three heavily textured, mixed-media works painted with blends of “coffee grounds and extracts.” The artist seems to delight in texture for its own sake, but Peigna — actually Jean-Marie Peigna, a coffee painter of international renown

who died in 2005 — was also an astute abstract expressionist. His coffee media impart unique colors, including rusty reds and an array of

American who moved to Nicaragua in 1987. Her untitled acrylic figurative abstractions, all 18-by-24 inches, combine the vibrancy and simple

It’s good that coffee at the Firehouse will lure folks in to look at the art. rich browns. “Curbas de Nival” has crackled surfaces with hefty blotches of brown floating on a white field. “À l’aube du Nuean Café” reveals a deeper, more naturalistic space. It’s like an abstract house with shapes hulking above and below a curved, ruddy roof. The work’s pale yet built-up background is crusty with coffeeground textures. Peigna’s paintings are all of modest size, focusing viewers’ eyes on their minimalist forms and expressive textures. Patricia Erickson is an expatriate

shapes of Central American folk art with the compositional sophistication of contemporary fine art. One of the works portrays a man in a crimson boat hauling in a net full of fish. The figure pulls at an angle in the piece’s upper left area, and sinewy blue, turquoise and emerald-green lines describe the catch. Then Erickson painted white lines of complex, jagged netting over the central aqueous background, capturing lively rhythmic movement along with the bountiful harvest.

The most impressive sculpture in the show is a wall-mounted mask, several feet in diameter, from the state of Guerrero in Mexico. The piece was actually used in “Holy Week” carnival celebrations. It’s a bullish head festooned with a dozen ram, goat and bull horns, equipped with mirrors for eyes and, of course, wildly painted. Unlike sculptures aimed at tourists, which appear elsewhere in the show, this mask’s surfaces have a wonderful patina that attests to its authenticity. It’s unfortunate that “Coffee Culture” and Church Street’s café cliques can’t coincide and commingle, owing to inclement weather. But it’s good that coffee at the Firehouse will lure folks in to look at the art. Perhaps more Vermont arts organizations should plan anniversaries in conjunction with those of popular businesses — especially ones with tasty products. m

Size Matters Funds are slow in coming for a sculptural tribute to Big Joe Burrell


he sculptor commissioned to create a memorial to Burlington’s larger-thanlife sax man says he wants to ensure, above all, that “Big Joe Burrell is big.” And it’s precisely because Shelburne STORY sculptor Chris Sharp was asked to cast KEVIN J. a lifelike image of the Unknown Blues KELLEY Band front man that sponsors are having trouble raising the money IMAGE needed for the tribute. Burrell, who MATTHEW died in 2005 at age 80, stood 6-footTHORSEN 3 and weighed around 300 pounds. Not surprisingly, the cost to cast him For more info, in bronze is big as well. visit www.bigjoe Less than half of the necessary or $75,000 has been pledged in the six email bigjoestatue fund@adelphia. months since fundraising got undernet. To make a way. The amount is considerable, donation, send to explains Burlington City Arts Big Joe Statue Fund, 149 Church Administration Director Sara Katz, because “the foundry process is so St., Burlington, VT 05401. intricate and the price of the material is so high.” Even so, she adds, Sharp’s version won’t cost nearly as much as what a California sculptor wanted to charge for a similar piece. A metalworking and art teacher at Burlington High School, Sharp has work on display at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Massachusetts as well as at the entrance to Burlington’s Fletcher Free Library. “Archways,” a metal-andPlexiglas piece he co-created with John Mazuzan, has graced the library’s exterior wall since 1988. Sharp won’t settle for shortcuts in paying homage to Burrell. “A lot of cheap, new processes are on the market now,” he notes. “You can spray metal on top of something else, but if

I did that, 20 years from now the city would be wondering what to do about the piece because it would be decaying.” In a clay model Sharp has shaped from a photograph by Josef Cernikowsky, a bespectacled Burrell stands with one hand holding his instrument and the other pointing toward an invisible audience. Fans of the late sax man will recognize the characteristic gesture. Sharp says he aims to “show Big Joe connecting with his audience. He’s not depicted in as flamboyant a way as a rock star, but there is this sense of classy action.” The finished, three-quarter-ton sculpture is also meant to be “approachable.” Sharp says it’s OK with him if “a child sticks his head in Big Joe’s sax.” He’s not seeking to

It was a love for jazz that led Sharp to accept the commission for the sculpture after a local review panel had considered — and rejected — 15 entries from across the country. Sharp says he knew and liked Burrell, but has been inspired more by the music than by the man in creating this piece. He describes his work in general as “figurative sculpture that depicts philosophical and emotional struggles we go through.” The struggle to raise funds for this example of Sharp’s work has recently gained some momentum, says Toni Trombley, chair of the 10-person committee charged with bringing the vision to fruition. Nearly $30,000 is now committed. Contributors have

Trombley, the partner of Burrell’s nephew Leon Burrell, says she’s still hopeful the money will be raised in time to ensure that an unveiling takes place as planned during next June’s Discover Jazz Festival. What’s needed now, she says, is for “a big underwriter or two to step up, whether an individual or a corporation.” The fundraising drive’s slowerthan-expected pace can be attributed to “intense competition for donations, especially in this political season,” Trombley suggests. It can also be difficult to generate generosity for public artworks, she adds, though she’s not sure why this is so. But even if the $75,000 goal

However, the City of Burlington is the source of the single-largest gift — $5000 — so far given to the Big Joe Burrell Statue Fund. Burlington City Arts has also donated the time Katz

remains beyond reach eight months hence, “We’re going to keep fundraising till we get there,” Trombley declares. “It’s just a question of when.” Trombley suggests that those who admired Big Joe Burrell’s chops should realize how lucky Burlington was to have been the base of “such a homegrown icon” of the jazz scene. m

New Book Opens Doors For Game Job Seekers

Paid to Play: An Insider’s Guide to Video Game Careers by Alice Rush, David Hodgson and Bryan Stratton, Prima Games, $19.95.

Kids used to run away to join the circus. These days, it’s video games. Sure, mom and dad want you to become a banker, a broker or a comptroller at Enron. But you want freedom and adventure. Most of all, you want to do something that’s fun. With fewer career openings these days as the human cannonball or even on the elephant-scooper crew, video games have grown to lure a generation that figures making digital entertainment must be as much fun as sitting around just playing games. Paid to Play: An Insider’s Guide to Video Game Careers hits the bookstores with a confident and comical guide to making money in, around and near the video-game industry. The book assembles more

than 100 interviews in a menu of gaming-career counseling. From game designer, producer and programmer to visual artist, audio engineer and PR flack, this book dishes on the ups and downs of dozens of job tracks and provides practical advice for landing a gig. Want to break into the business and have no real skills other than a serious obsession with video games? No problem. Paid to Play suggests that the quality-assurance department might have a spot for you. For around $28,000 a year, you can play games — or at least the few games your company needs tested — 50-plus hours a week. You’ll get treated like a peon and slowly have your love of games sucked out of you. Not convinced? The book goes on to relate a former tester’s tale of nights spent sleeping in a hammock that the company installed for him and a wardrobe picked out by the company receptionist so he wouldn’t have to leave work to change clothes. But, hey, what do you care? You’re in the game industry! Chapter after chapter of jobdetailing provide a fascinating look at the real work behind the digital glitz, while the smart-alecky style of reporting helps keep the book lively even when scanning through such dull vocational paths as technical director, publisher and, ahem, journalist. One of the book’s key strengths lies in its exhaustive coverage of possible game careers. Want to set up your own independent game company? Covered. Want to make it as a professional gamer? Covered. Think you have the good teeth and hair you need to work in TV? Covered. The search for possible ways to squeeze cash out

of anything game-related ranges so far that it even comes back with the lowly retail job in its far-reaching net. You, too, can work in the game business by staffing a counter at the mall. At only a couple hundred pages, the book does not provide a comprehensive job-seeker’s guide. Sections on interview skills and vocational-interest inventories attempt to summarize the What Color Is Your Parachute? method in shorthand simplicity. But the advice offered provides as good as any you can get for less than $20.

SUDOKU By Linda Thistle

Who’s It For: If you want to work in the game business and don’t have an uncle in the HR department at Electronic Arts, then this book is well-worth the $20. This wry and readable survey of game employment provides a fascinating look into the lives of the people who work in and around games for a living. If You Like This, Try That: Ernest Adams’ Break Into the Game Industry: How to Get a Job Making Video Games has been on the shelves for a few years. But Adams still provides the kind of nononsense advice you’d expect from an industry pro. Best Part: A section on women in the game industry recognizes that females want to play, too, and attempts to give some basic advice for breaking into this boy’s club. So You Want to Be a Video-Game Star: From the same people who brought you the Game Developers Conference and Game Developer Magazine comes gamecareerguide. com. A new site dedicated to news, features and resources for the game-industry job hunter, this free resource looks to become the hub for game-industry jobs.

ormer Beatle Sir Paul McCartney’s divorce from Heather Mills is on the brink of a civil war that could ultimately involve other countries in the region, experts worried today. That view is shared by James A. Baker III, who headed a special task force dispatched to London by President Bush to assess the current state of the McCartney-Mills split. Upon his return to Washington, Mr. Baker spoke of the former Beatle’s divorce proceedings in somber terms. “It’s a helluva mess,” Mr. Baker said. The former secretary of state said that if the conflict between Sir Paul and Ms. Mills continues to spiral out of control, it could result in a wider war that draws in such neighboring countries as Ireland, France and Spain.

As news of escalating violence in the McCartney-Mills rift reached U.S. shores, the divorce became a hot topic of the midterm election campaign,

october 26-november 01

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Nineteenth-century

English poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti wrote a series of sensual sonnets inspired by his relationship with his wife Elizabeth. Before he could publish them, Elizabeth died. He was so distraught he placed the only copy of his manuscript in the grave with her. Years later, though, he decided the love poems were too good to consign forever to the oblivion of the dirt. He had the coffin disinterred and recovered his work. I suggest you draw inspiration from this story, Aries. Reclaim riches that you once abandoned or left for dead. Halloween costume suggestions: grave-digger, archaeologist, miner, psychic medium who communes with the spirits of the departed.


(April 20-May 20): “Jaws” is the most common name for pet goldfish. Take your cue from this fun fact, Taurus. Identify the mildest, tamest, most passive part of you, then push it in the direction of becoming more daring, assertive and courageous. If it helps to give that part of you a nickname like “Jaws,” by all means do so. Halloween costume suggestion: a shark, Tyrannosaurus, dragon or football player.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A sizable portion

of Christians are addicted to pornography, according to a poll conducted by a major Christian website If that’s true, it’s dramatic proof of what psychologists say: that we’re prone to be unhealthily obsessed and possessed by whatever we demonize. Meditate on how this theme might apply to you, Gemini. Investigate whether you’re being hurt by your scorn and anger and hatred. And please note that I’m not advising you to protect yourself from people or things you judge as bad, but rather from your attitudes about them. Halloween costume suggestion: a fundamentalist porn star.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): In December

1984, comedian T.R. Benker told jokes for 48 consecutive hours at a restaurant in Mount Prospect, Illinois. Last year, Ethiopian oddball Belachew Girma laughed nonstop for 100 minutes

at a club in Munich. These two chuckle-meisters are your role models, Cancerian. Your assignment is to stimulate massive attacks of reeling merriment and potent doses of sacred revelry as much as possible, both in yourself and others. Halloween costume suggestion: a court jester who relentlessly doles out compliments; a smirking prankster with angel wings and a halo; Santa Claus with a bag full of joke gifts; Lucille Ball imitating Sara Silverman or vice versa.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Most flowers depend on

pollinators to reproduce. Birds and insects brush up against a flower’s male parts, picking up pollen that they leave on the female parts of the next flower they visit. But nature has created an anomaly that doesn’t play by these rules. A wild orchid known as Holcoglossum amesianum fecundates itself. Its male bits actually move, carrying out a complicated maneuver to reach around and down to deposit pollen directly into its female portions. This orchid is your power symbol, Leo. I hope it encourages you to learn more about self-fertilization — to increase your mastery of the underappreciated art of inspiring and teaching and taking care of yourself. Halloween costume suggestion: a hermaphrodite carrying a wild orchid.


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): French author Andre Gide said, “The color of truth is gray.” Make that your watchword, Virgo. Resist the temptation to fall in love with bright shiny red facts or alluring azure maxims. Run like the wind from anyone who tries to sell you a story about good guys in white hats versus bad guys in black hats. The more comfortable you are with veracities that have the hue of dirty dishwater, the more likely it is you’ll see things exactly as they are, free of delusions and deceits. Halloween costume suggestion: any elaborate, intricate getup, like a commedia dell’arte character’s outfit that’s all gray.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Chinese professor Cao Shizhong is head of the Slanting Building Correction Research Institute. His company specializes in straightening vertical structures that are tilting. He has offered to fix Italy’s

Leaning Tower of Pisa, though not completely. Recognizing that it’s a tourist attraction, Shizhong doesn’t want to make it so upright that it’ll lose its appeal to the curious. So he has offered to give it the same mild slant it had when it was first constructed in 1350. Let’s apply this as a metaphor, Libra. I suggest that you partially rectify something that’s slouching or lopsided in your life. Don’t be such a compulsive perfectionist that it loses its soulful charm. Halloween costume suggestion: a beauty queen with a big pimple; a superhero with a broken arm.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re ready for

take-off. It’s time to taxi to the launch location and prepare to go airborne. I suggest you do what birds and airplanes do, which is to fly directly into the wind as you leave the ground. As long as you’re forcefully propelling yourself forward, that will give you maximum lift. Oh, and flap your wings gracefully, not frenetically. Don’t stare at the ground right beneath you, but rather fix your gaze on a distant point high above you. Halloween costume suggestion: eagle, jet, hang-glider, dragonfly.


(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): About 7500 people live on Nauru, a coral atoll in the South Pacific. For years, their primary source of income has come from bird droppings, from which they harvest and export phosphates. I suggest you draw inspiration from their example, Sagittarius. Can you think of any wastes you could cash in on? Might it be possible for you to make money from something you think of as useless and messy? Is there some muck that might actually turn out to be valuable if you only considered it from a fresh perspective? Halloween costume suggestion: a plumber carrying a wad of bills; a garbage man or garbage woman wearing a royal crown; a janitor sporting shamanic accessories.


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Thomas Paine was a zealous insurrectionary. He wrote incendiary pamphlets that helped ignite and

sustain America’s struggle for independence from Great Britain. Early in his life, however, he worked making women’s girdles, which are among the most constrictive and oppressive garments in the history of the world. Do you think there was a connection between his two gigs? Like maybe his later struggle for liberation was an unconscious atonement for his youthful labors? That’s my hypothesis. In the coming week, Capricorn, I suggest you instigate a Thomas Paine-like boomerang. Think of something you did in the past that constricted your spirit or squeezed other people’s possibilities. Use that memory as a launching pad as you unleash a brilliant stroke in the name of abundance and expansiveness. Halloween costume suggestion: freedom fighter.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Lightning

strikes somewhere on the earth 6000 times every minute. A single bolt may carry a million volts and reach a temperature of 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. If this elemental force could be tamed and utilized, it would provide enough energy to raise a cruise ship 6 feet in the air. While you won’t be able to literally harness a lightning bolt in the coming week, Aquarius, you could accomplish the metaphorical equivalent. At least temporarily, you have an uncanny talent for mobilizing tremendous power that’s normally too hot to handle. Halloween costume suggestion: a relaxed, smiling lightning bolt.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “Travel is fatal

to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness,” wrote Mark Twain. I’d add that it also tends to dissolve dogmas, break bad habits, and flush away sterile theories that haven’t been tested by actual experience. These are all blessings I wish for you right now, Pisces. I hope that as you wander free of your familiar haunts, you’ll have your mind completely blown, get shocked out of your limiting beliefs about yourself, and be so electrified by the world’s beauty that you pretty much fall in love with everything and everyone. Halloween costume suggestion: a tourist, nomad, sherpa guide, shaman, Ferdinand Magellan, Sacagawea, Amelia Earhart. >

Flags of Our Fathers HHHH

L FATHER’S DAYS One soldier’s World War II experience is pieced together by his son in the harrowing new film from Clint Eastwood.

ouder than the blizzard of bullets and shells that mangled tanks as easily as human bodies, more deafening than the noise from stadiums filled with marching bands and screaming masses was the silence one man kept for a lifetime. This silence is at the center of Clint Eastwood’s remarkable new film, a story of war that’s really about conflict raging invisibly, soundlessly, deep in the heart. Based on the best-selling book by James Bradley and Ron Powers, Flags of Our Fathers chronicles Bradley’s effort to reconstruct the World War II experience of his father, John “Doc” Bradley. At the time of his father’s death in 1994, the son knew only that he had served in the war as a Navy corpsman and had been one of the six U.S. soldiers who raised the flag on Iwo Jima, captured in Joe Rosenthal’s famous 1945 photograph. The subject was taboo in the household. Not until he began to interview men who had fought alongside his father did Bradley begin to understand why. Eastwood flashes back and forth between the battle to take the strategically pivotal island — the bloodiest, costliest confrontation in the history of the Marine Corps — and the surreal set of circumstances in which three young soldiers found themselves soon afterward. He skips around in time in a way that can seem arbitrary until the film’s final harrowing act, when the director’s artful, masterly design comes fully into view for the first time. The movie opens with a night scene. Doc Bradley and another young man share a foxhole. Flares explode overhead. Just beyond view, a Marine lies wounded, crying out for help. The medic prepares to make his way to the soldier despite the knowledge that the Japanese could emerge from the darkness at any moment. “You’re not going to leave me here, are you?” Bradley’s buddy asks. He does. After attending to the injured soldier he returns — and finds a different Marine in the foxhole. Where is his friend, he asks. “You must have jumped into the wrong foxhole,” is the reply. How could the other soldier have disappeared without a trace in the seconds Bradley left him alone? When he learns the answer, it will turn him into the man who never spoke of the war to his family, and who hid his Medal of Honor like an object of shame. This is one of three stories Eastwood tells. It’s an account of guilt and suffering beyond words. It is the most powerful of the three stories, though the others are also unforgettable. The second offers a glimpse into hell — a portrait of war in all its horror, chaos and capriciousness. To date, the Normandy landing sequence in Saving Private Ryan probably held the distinction of being the most shockingly realistic depiction of battle ever committed to film. It’s safe to say that distinction now belongs to Flags of Our Fathers. The picture is unflinching in its graphic, blood-drenched

detail. The first battle of the war fought on Japanese soil, the taking of Iwo Jima required an initial force of 30,000 men to storm a beach at the base of a 550-foot mountain the enemy had transformed into a giant rock fortress. From openings in the stone, untold numbers of machine guns and heavy artillery fired down on the Americans. Massacre and mayhem continued for five days, after which the Marines miraculously succeeded in taking control of Mount Suribachi; the rest of the island would require another month to secure. On that fifth day, with the fight for the mountain over, someone suggested raising a flag. That wasn’t the famous flag, however. A high-ranking officer commandeered the flag that was raised initially as a souvenir. A second group of soldiers then had to raise a second flag. That’s when Rosenthal got the shot seen round the world. Back in the States, government officials recognized instantly the photograph’s public-relations value. With the nation nearly broke and the public grown weary of the war, the image was viewed as a symbol that could make people believe victory was imminent and convince them to contribute further to the war fund. This is the third story Eastwood tells, a story about the way a picture changed the course of WWII and the lives of three young men. Ryan Phillippe, Jesse Bradford and Adam Beach portray Bradley, Rene Gagnon and Ira Hayes, respectively, the three flag raisers who hadn’t fallen in battle by the time the call came to return home and headline a bond tour that would turn them into overnight celebrities. The film explores the growing guilt each experienced as a result of being wined, dined, and treated as heroes while their best friends continued to face death overseas. It also presents a seminal moment in U.S. politics, the birth of spin as we know it today. Each of the three men realized the flag raising was the least heroic act they’d accomplished on the island. Each knew they were taking part in a sham — one that had a noble enough purpose, but a sham, nonetheless. To varying degrees, the three lost their souls, if not their lives, as a result of the war. Eastwood’s landmark movie documents the waste and folly of what they went through, from the battle campaign to the marketing campaign. All of it is a tragic story magnificently told. Doc Bradley’s is the most haunting of all. In the end, he was never able to reconcile the moment he left his close friend in that foxhole with the horror that occurred in his absence. The scene in which he learns the truth about it ranks among the most quietly shattering I’ve witnessed on film. The silence one young man carried into old age conveys everything worth saying about humankind’s incurable habit of war. m

Apparently, every hour of every day there are horses in the air.” The human element in Taylor and Potter’s current project has been even more compelling. “Two-thirds of the world’s population don’t have opportunities that we take for granted,” he says. “In some of these almost feudal societies, I was blown away by the spirit and desire to succeed.” A three-film series on Thursdays at 7 p.m. will celebrate the Fleming Museum’s new James B.

October 16: The Business of Fancydancing, by Sherman Alexie, concerns a gay poet living in Spokane who confronts the past when he returns to his childhood home on the reservation to attend a friend’s funeral. November 16: Chris Eyre’s Skins examines conditions on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation through the relationship between a conflicted tribal police officer and his selfdestructive brother. November 30: Powwow Highway, a poignant and funny 1989 road movie by Jonathan Wacks, follows two Cheyenne men on a trip from Montana to New Mexico. Buddy (A Martinez), an embittered Vietnam vet, has been struggling to save his community from a land grab. The idiosyncratic Philbert (Gary Farmer) has a more

spiritual perspective; for him, the drive south is a quest to reaffirm a disappearing traditional identity. As the duo takes unplanned detours to a few sacred sites, he envisions their battered ’64 Buick as a war pony dubbed “Protector.” New York Times critic Janet Maslin’s review of Powwow observed, “These old friends cover a landscape of present-day disappointments and long-lost glory.” Their journey, a symbolic ode to America’s indigenous population, feels exhilarating nonetheless. Call 656-8582 for ticket prices or other information. “Never in a million years did we think that promoting world peace could be dangerous,” writes Yoko Ono in a publicity brochure for The U.S. vs. John Lennon, which opens at the Savoy Theater in Montpelier this weekend. The engrossing documentary, directed by David Leaf and John Scheinfeld, chronicles the couple’s five-year ordeal. Under orders from the White House, immigration officials kept trying to

deport the former Beatle as an undesirable alien. He and Ono had become high-profile activists who recorded the movement anthem “Give Peace a Chance” during their 1969 honeymoon “bed-in” at a Montréal hotel. Various talking heads recall that antiwar types were routinely targeted for outspoken criticism of the conflict in Vietnam. Noting FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover’s “significantly different version of democracy,” newscaster Walter Cronkite speculates that Richard Nixon put Lennon at the top of his infamous enemies list. In archival footage, the president refuses to announce a timetable for withdrawing troops from Southeast Asia, despite mounting casualties. Sound familiar? This unabashed polemic pulls no punches. Gadfly author Gore Vidal suggests that, “Mr. Nixon and Mr. Bush represent death,” whereas John Lennon “represented life.” As “Instant Karma” booms over the closing credits, the beloved musician’s belief that “we all shine on” might move even the most hard-hearted audience. m

Alan Dater and Lisa Merton of Marlboro went back to Nairobi this summer to finish shooting Roots of Change: The Vision of Wangari Maathai, their profile of the Kenyan environmentalist who won the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize. In February Jim Taylor and his wife Barbara Potter spent time with Muhammad Yunus, whose 2006 Nobel was announced last week. Formerly of Resolution Inc., the Burlington couple interviewed him for their as-yet-unnamed documentary about initiatives that help people in developing nations help themselves. “It’s really a film about hope,” explains Taylor, a 1971 University of Vermont grad. “We looked at the issue of land titles in Peru, the fall of communism in Estonia, education in Ghana, and globalization in China. Yunus is a banker in Bangladesh who extends micro-credit loans to people so they can start little businesses. He gives them $85 with no collateral and no contract, but there’s a 99-percent payback rate. And 56 percent of them have now climbed out of poverty.” Taylor has been in the industry for about three decades, often working with Potter on numerous commercials, TV programs and other docs.

At Tamarack Hollow Farm, happy pigs produce great pork PHOTO: THOmAs cHrisTOPHer greene



he first thought that occurs to a visitor upon arriving at Tamarack Hollow Farm is, “Where are the pigs?” There is no sign announcing Corinth, Vermont’s premier pork-producing establishment. And beyond the house and the old barn, nothing even says working farm. No animals. No tractors or abandoned equipment. Just the house and, around it, wild, waist-high meadow stretching to the forested ridges that circle Eagle Hollow like a bowl.

“I bet you’d never guess that there are 150 hogs here,” says Mike Betit, who runs this farm with his wife Elsa. What he doesn’t say is that the hidden livestock he’s raising aren’t just any pigs — they might very well be the best pork in America. If the farm doesn’t look the part, neither does the farmer. In his T-shirt, Carhartt shorts and rubber clogs, 29-year-old Betit could be a UVM student. He wears his blond hair tied in a short ponytail and his reddish beard cut close to his cheeks. A closer look reveals his tired, red-rimmed eyes and the bags that have begun to set in underneath. “You caught me on a tough day,” he apologizes. “My circadian rhythms are all thrown off.” That’s because it’s a Thursday. On Wednesday mornings at 2 a.m., Betit leaves Corinth in a white van loaded with pork. At around 7 he arrives at the famous greenmarket in New York City’s Union Square. He stays there for 12 hours, selling his pasture-raised organic chops, shoulders and ribs out of various coolers. Then he climbs back in the van and returns to Vermont. If everything goes well, he gets home sometime between 1 and 2 Thursday morning. Pork is one of the most adaptable of meats. It can be smoked and cured as bacon and ham. It’s cut into chops or roasts, and ground to make sausage.


Barbecued ribs are a Southern staple. But pork’s very versatility also works against it. It’s so widely available — raised primarily at large commercial factories in the middle part of the country — that it doesn’t have the same cachet in the food world as, say, lamb or beef. Highend restaurants, in particular, have not gravitated to small, organic pork producers in the same way they have to producers of lamb. Economies of scale make it difficult. The Yale Club of Manhattan wanted 200 tenderloins from Betit. With only 150 hogs at any given time, he couldn’t meet the order.

Tamarack does have two established restaurant accounts in Manhattan. Seamus Mullen, the chef at Boqueria in Manhattan, buys suckling pigs weekly. For his bistro, he quarters the pigs, salt-cures them, and then steams them in apples overnight. “The meat has tremendous flavor,” says Mullen, who is originally from Vershire. “It’s great stuff. Free-range, of course. People love it.” At this point, the Betits don’t have any Vermont restaurant clients. They make more money selling retail at local farmers’ markets in Burlington and Montpelier. Tamarack pork is also available in Norwich

at the Killder Farm Stand and at the co-op in St. Johnsbury. In addition, members of the farm’s community-supported agriculture program pick up weekly deliveries of pork at drop-off points in Burlington and Montpelier 10 months of the year. The cost is $1125 for 20 pounds a month, or $575 for 10 pounds. Winemakers like to talk about terroir, a French term for how the earth informs the character of the grapes. The pork from Tamarack Hollow is distinguished by an incredible depth of flavor without any gaminess. It’s as different from commercial >> 0B

THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER: I said “no food.” I didn’t say there was nothing to eat. In Ravenous, eating your enemies comes with a bonus: superhuman strength. What’s not to like? Perhaps the insatiable hunger that accompanies it? The concept derives from the Native American myth of the Weendigo, in which the cannibal takes on the spirit and strength of the cannibalized. In 1847, the folks at remote and unpleasant Fort Spencer, California, learn this the hard way. A stranger who claims to have been menaced by a flesh-chomping monster leads them on an expedition into the winter wilderness. Deception, murder and a big pot of stew follow. Why watch it? For the cool cast — including Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle — the interesting take on Manifest Destiny, and the fact that it’s probably the only movie in the world likened to both Dances with Wolves and Night of the Living Dead. Serving suggestion: Pork stew with winter vegetables. DOmINIqUE PINON IN Delicatessen


PAUL BLAND: It’s amazing what you can do with cheap meat . . . if you know how to treat it! And of course, the right wine always helps. Mary and Paul are boring. Even their last name is Bland. They’re grossed out by sex, and fantasize instead about owning a restaurant. Coming up with the capital poses a problem, though, until they hit on the obvious solution: luring “perverts” to their apartment and bumping them off with a cast-iron pan. After training with a dominatrix, they place an ad in the paper, and the clients roll in. Things are going fine until they meet Raoul, who helps them sell the corpses to a pet-food producer. Raoul also introduces Mary to marijuana and the pleasures of the flesh. Will she choose bland Paul or hot-blooded Raoul? The movie’s title doesn’t leave much doubt about the outcome, but you’ll giggle or groan as you watch the Blands go from chewing chicken to eating Raoul. Why watch it? For the really strange folk the Blands encounter in their S&M operation. Serving suggestion: Beef enchiladas with “red sauce,” rice and refried beans.


Michael Lamale is 10 years old when he finally wonders how his parents can serve “leftovers” every night. Michael seems to be part of the perfect ’50s family. Perky Mom wears Bo-Peep dresses, and Dad works hard at a company called Toxico so that he can bring home the bacon. Only the bacon he’s bringing home doesn’t come from a pig. On his perilous quest to discover the origins of the “leftovers,” Michael witnesses one of the strangest sex scenes on record. Don’t miss the human legs hanging from hooks in the basement. Why watch it? For suburban gore, freaky subversion of 1950s ideals, and Randy Quaid in his creepiest role ever. Serving suggestion: Barbecued ribs, mashed potatoes and frozen corn.



TENANT 1: How long did that other guy last us? TENANT 2: A week. Not counting the broth, that is. In post-apocalyptic France, the food ain’t what it used to be. Frogs have fled with their legs, and escargot is escargone. It’s a gourmet’s nightmare. But a wily butcher lures unsuspecting handymen to his apartment, where he converts them into cuts of meat to sell to the building’s odd tenants. The newest potential victim, a former clown, gets wise to the scheme, and is eventually rescued by a vegetarian militia called Les Troglidistes. Anthropophagy at its strangest. Why watch it? For the cachet it will give you among film buffs, and for the general strangeness. Serving suggestion: Liverwurst sandwiches. 2x6-Auggies100406.indd 1

MILLER: Haven’t you ever heard of the Donner party? HUMPHREY: Yeah, the Donner party, they got stuck in the California mountains. PACKER: They had to eat each other to stay alive. [The miners all look over at their dead companion’s body.] HUMPHREY: Well, heck yeah! Why not? BELL: Wait a minute, Humphrey, you wouldn’t even eat your shoes! HUMPHREY: Well, yeah, but you put your feet in shoes! This has gotta be the goofiest cannibal film ever made. A college project by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of “South Park” fame, it’s based on the true story of Alfred Packer. In the harsh winter of 1873, he and four companions set out in search of gold mines. When Packer returned alone, bearing the other men’s money and a few strips of human jerky, he was accused of murder. His subsequent trials and jailing are a matter of much interest in Colorado, where many still defend his innocence. Parker tells the story via seven silly song-and-

LECTER SCoopS ouT a man’S fRonTaL LoBE, SauTéS iT, and fEEdS iT To him in hanniBaL.



WAITER: For entrees this evening I have swordfish meatloaf with onion marmalade, rare roasted partridge breast in raspberry coulis with a sorrel timbale . . . Although he doesn’t generally eat his victims, Patrick Bateman occasionally keeps a human head in his freezer beside the low-fat sorbet. And he admits to having tried to “cook a little” on occasion. Although there’s minimal cannibalism in this film, it does serve up plenty of food. The characters spend much of their time at hip restaurants, and the opening credits dissolve into shots of beautifully presented, over-the-top dishes while a waiter drones on about daily specials. Also


CLARICE STARLING: Most serial killers keep some sort of trophy from their victims. HANNIBAL LECTER: I didn’t. CLARICE STARLING: No, you ate yours. The characters’ names — Hannibal the Cannibal, Buffalo Bill, Clarice Starling — suggest a silly horror film set in cowboy country. In fact, this is a scholarly movie melding opera, art, gourmet cuisine and, well, gore. Although Hannibal Lecter isn’t the film’s focus, he steals every scene he is in. A psychiatrist-turnedpsychopath, Lecter seems to know what everyone is thinking, and takes great pleasure in messing with people’s minds. He’s suave and cruel as he guides FBI agent Clarice Starling towards a serial killer who is making “woman suits” from his victims. Why watch it? Because it’s a damn good movie, that’s why. Plus, you’ll get to shiver deliciously when Lecter delivers the line about eating a census taker’s liver with fava beans and Chianti. Serving suggestions: Liver (calf, not human) with fava beans and Chianti, of course. If you can’t get fava beans, try lima. Or you could eat some lamb.


HANNIBAL VICTIM: When the fox hears the rabbit scream he comes a-runnin’ . . . but not to help. More brutal and unnerving than its prequel, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal gives the title character his due. A former victim of Lecter’s tries to orchestrate his death, but ends up instead in Lecter’s clutches — along with a few other folks who have proven to be a bit rude. Anthony Hopkins, who plays Lecter, hams it up for the camera, especially in the scene featuring a group of deadly hogs. But the most shocking moment feels more like Faces of Death than a Hollywood feature film — Hannibal scoops out a man’s frontal lobe, sautés it, and feeds it to him. Why watch it? For closure. Didn’t you always want to know what became of Lecter and Starling’s relationship? Serving suggestion: Anything but your own brain. >

RADIO ANNOUNCER: . . . is brought to you by Soylent red and Soylent yellow, high-energy vegetable concentrates, and now delicious Soylent green. The miracle food of high-energy plankton gathered from the oceans of the world. DETECTIVE THORN: It’s people. Soylent green is made out of people . . . Next thing, they’ll be breeding us like cattle for food . . . We’ve gotta stop them somehow. In 2022, the government has finally solved the problems of overpopulation and world hunger in one fell swoop. The solution? Soylent green, which is promoted as a calorie-packed plankton product, but in reality, might be Grandma. Charlton Heston’s character, Detective Thorn, gets wind of the awful truth while investigating the murder of a Soylent company exec, and with the help of his partner, looks for proof. Websites say that Heston opted to be in Soylent Green because he’s very concerned about overpopulation. Maybe this explains his position on guns? Why watch it? For the fear factor — as global warming gets worse and the U.S. population skyrockets, this movie seems realistic and out of date at the same time. Serving suggestion: Tofu stir-fried with an assortment of greens.

This may sound like a strange way to relate a tale involving murder and flesh eating, but ponder the plot lines of some other famous musicals: West Side Story involves a gang murder, and Rent deals with the pain of being broke and living with AIDS.

pork as Kobe beef is from a McDonald’s hamburger. One can almost the taste the pasture — the clover and fescue, the wild grass. It’s hard to mess up Tamarack Hollow Farm pork. Even cooked hard on a hot grill, it almost never dries out. With finer cuts such as tenderloin and rib chops, it’s wise not to try to mask the natural taste with a gaudy sauce. The meat speaks for itself. What makes it so good? Betit just shrugs. “I don’t really know what anyone else does,” he says, “other than the big commercial places, which I’ve visited. I do know a lot of people claim they are organic when they’re not. Anyone can feed pigs scraps and call themselves organic.” Betit is a ninth-generation Vermonter, but a selftaught farmer. When he was growing up in Whitingham, in southern Vermont, his mother ran a general store over the border in Massachusetts. At Johnson State College, Betit studied theater and dreamed for a time of becoming an actor. He left before graduating, though, and for a few years

worked at an alternative school, coordinating outdoor programs. He came to commercial farming almost by chance. One year he and Elsa decided to raise a pig for themselves. Someone told them it would be better to have two pigs than one, so they raised a pair. They gave the meat away to family and friends, who raved about its taste. So Betit bought a book called The Small Farmer’s Guide to Raising Pigs, and Tamarack Hollow Farm was born. Today, the Betits live with their two young sons a few miles from the farm, and lease the land where the pigs graze. The high pasture’s hidden location initially appealed to Betit for reasons of bio-security. “So many farms have livestock right on the side of the road,” he points out. “Someone stops in their car to see them. Maybe they raise a pig at home. Or even not. They reach out and pet a pig, and that pig catches something, and suddenly it runs through the whole herd. You can’t control it. But being up here, I’ve never had a sick animal.” Betit is particular about control. “Mike comes from a long line of puritanical, work-

ethic people,” says Elsa. “He thinks there is only one way to do things: the right way. What he loves about the farm is that there is always something to do. He can come out here any time and find work.” The ordered world of Mike Betit is evident in that pasture above the tree line, hidden from outside view. The pigs run around in large paddocks, playing and nipping at each other like dogs. They drink water from the garden hoses that run from barrels Betit brings up daily, and eat directly from the pasture, and from the organic grains Betit scatters around on the dirt. Small wooden huts provide shelter from the heat and the rain. The animals are remarkably clean. Although a few of them are muddy from a roll in standing drinking water, most of the spots on their white hides are natural. Besides being clean, the animals are amazingly uniform in size. When they’re brought to slaughter in a week or so, each will hang at around 200 pounds. They look fit, without the usual distended bellies of hogs raised for slaughter. They also look — there is no other way to say it — content. >

How About Hardwick? Discriminating diners will drive to — not through — hardscrabble Hardwick if a team of foodies has its way. Next spring, Chef Steven Obranovich, Mike Bosia, Linda Ramsdell and Christina Michelsen intend to open Claire’s in the Bemis Block, which was damaged by fire last year. The restaurant and café will be named after Claire Fern, a local artist known for her hospitality. “She extended a warm welcome to everyone; she was a wonderful cook who very much appreciated what everyone brought to the table,” says Ramsdell, who is also the owner of Hardwick’s Galaxy Bookshop. The group will utilize a financial model similar to the one Robert Fuller used to start the Bobcat STEVEN OBRANOVICH Café in Bristol. A group of local investors each AND LINDA RAMSDELL ponies up a small amount of cash to launch the restaurant; they’re repaid in food. And how will it taste? The partners describe the fare as “New Vermont Cooking,” a.k.a. eclectic, moderately priced comfort food. Dishes will range from spaghetti and meatballs to special-occasion items such as herbed leg of lamb with potato au gratin and string beans. The menu acknowledges local roots with sides of molasses-baked beans and French-Canadian poutine. “New Vermont Cooking reflects both the values we care about and the direction that local farmers and restaurants have taken,” says Obranovich, who worked briefly at Greenboro’s now-defunct Lakeview Inn and is currently sous-chef at Michael’s on the Hill in Waterbury Center. “Opening a restaurant is a challenge. Emphasizing local and organic produce while maintaining affordability is even more so. We don’t expect to get rich — I just want to make a living by doing something I love for a community I care about.” Claire’s will be more than just a place for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. There will be live music on Thursday nights, with a focus on folk and country. Michelsen, a lawyer and a musician, plans to book lots of local entertainment. Says Bosia, a political science professor at St. Michael’s College, “We’re looking to make a longrange investment in the future of Hardwick.”

Hot Tip That’s Life Soup in Montpelier has been open for more than 45 days, and as far as host and business consultant Mark Belcher can figure, they haven’t made the same soup twice. That’s more than 100 different concoctions, including “Cream of Mmmmmmushroom with Gorganzola,” “Ridiculously Healthy Ukrainian Borscht” and “Braised Beef with Onions and Ziti,” all accompanied by slices of baguette and butter. “French Grille Sandwiches” and salads are also on the menu. Beverages include beer from Montpelier’s Rock Art Brewery and Grown-up Soda, otherwise known as GuS, which comes in serious flavors such as Dry Meyer Lemon and Dry Crimson Grape. That’s Life Soup is open weekdays, and serves lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and dinner from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Owner Pam Root aims to have “food for meat people and for veggie people.” Asked about the full flavor of the “Vegan Seven Bean Soup,” she confides, “I don’t cook bland.” The “Chicken with Lemon and Orzo” is a testament to that — the just-so lemony broth is chock-full of irregular-sized chunks of white and dark meat that clearly came from a whole chicken; the garnish of minced parsley harmonizes perfectly with the citrus. One tasty salad is a combination of mixed greens, roasted red peppers, manchego cheese and spiced nuts in wasabi vinaigrette. Archived menus from September describe each soup in loving and sometimes humorous detail. The “Lamb and Barley” reads, “The kitchen smelled incredible yesterday as I made the rich double stock of beef and lamb . . .” “Sweet Potato with Lime Jalapeño Cream” claims to be “. . . sweet, hot and tart. Reminds me of a friend.” The “Tomato and Israeli Couscous” gets more opinionated. The vegetarian blend “embellished with lots of garlic, mint, cumin and coriander” is “very political . . . promotes clear thinking.” The décor is just as purposeful as the menu descriptions. Root, who met Belcher when they both worked at Ben & Jerry’s, was inspired by the Arts & Crafts period. Frank Lloyd Wright would feel right at home here, with the warm wood, glass lamps, and the non-matching cloth napkins on each table. A bookshelf with a few cookbooks stands between the bathroom and the drink cooler, and a complement of copper pots are arrayed above the stove. The whole experience — service, food and ambiance — is best summed up as “charming.” Just don’t get too attached to any one soup.

Meat the Maker Patrick Mullikin is big on liverwust, corned-beef hash and “greasy fat pork tamales.” But it wasn’t his affinity for fleshy foods that caused him to print bumper stickers reading, “EAT MORE MEAT”; it was his love of poking fun at Montpelier’s “hippie back-to-the-earth” types. When he’s not freelancing for the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus, Mullikin makes T-shirts and buttons featuring anti-politically correct messages, silly phrases and iconic musicians. A couple of years ago, he noticed that some of the “banged-up Volvos” driving around Montpelier were sporting green circles reading “EAT MORE KALE.” More recently, Mullikin printed his counter-sticker; he occasionally slaps one onto a car that has a “kale” sticker, or looks like a promising candidate for one. Mullikin is notorious for his contrary “campaigns.” When folks in the Queen City were fighting to “save Sabin’s pasture” from development, he made buttons that read, “pave Sabin’s pasture.” As he puts it, his political paraphernalia is designed to “rankle some of the bastions of Montpelier.” Bo Muller-Moore, who created the “EAT MORE KALE” logo, isn’t offended by the satire, but prefers that people know he didn’t design the “meat” sticker. “I’m ultimately flattered, really,” he says. In the four years since he first created it, “I’ve had people suggest 400 different variations. People really love it or want to parody it . . . he actually had the gumption to do it.” Muller-Moore, who is not a vegetarian, first created “EAT MORE KALE” T-shirts at the behest of two friends, and soon a bunch of people around town were asking for them. He now sells “hundreds a year nationwide.” The “kale” bumper stickers, which are inexpensive to make, serve as advertising. Across the top they read, “Vermont’s One-At-A-Time Original Design T-shirts.” You can find Muller-Moore’s goods on his website at True to form, Mullikin’s “meat” stickers honestly state, “Vermont’s Mass-produced, Semi-Original-Design T-Shirts & Buttons.” You can find them at Riverwalk Records in Montpelier.

SEVEN DAYS: Listening to your album, I was amazed at how uplifting it sounds, especially considering what you’ve been through. How did you stay so positive within the music? REUBEN KOROMA: Well, music is something emotional. I’m a musician, and I’d been playing music before the war. So when war broke out, I was confused because I lost family members, and I missed my country. My mind was full of worries. But I sat down and realized: If I keep thinking about my worries, my life will not be safe. Well, I’m a musician. Let me just sing it so that I can purge some of my worries from my mind. I found music to be a therapy for psychological

THE LONG WAY HOME :: In the grand scheme of things, most bands don’t have much to worry about. Maybe the van breaks down once in a while, or a vanity drug habit gets a little out of hand. All are trifling concerns compared to what members of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have endured. The six-piece group, led by 42-yearold musician Reuben M. Koroma, has weathered personal losses and upheavals few American artists can comprehend. Caught in a brutal, decade-long civil war in their native West Africa, future SLRAS members were forced to flee Sierra Leone, settling in relief stations in nearby Guinea. In one such enclave, the Sembayounya Refugee Camp, Koroma started singing original songs to help him process his grief. Huddled around oil lamps, Koroma taught his tunes to a ragtag group of musicians he had met along the way. Using beat-up acoustic guitars and handmade percussion, the band fleshed out Koroma’s melodies. Although the players varied in age and background, they shared not just personal losses but also a belief in the healing power of music. The sound they arrived at was a melting pot of influences, including West African folk, reggae and rap. The group soon became a sensation among refugees in their own makeshift village and beyond. First-time filmmakers Zach Niles and Banker White, who were documenting the war’s human cost, began hearing stories about a pack of musicians who traveled from camp to camp, bringing enlivening sounds to war-weary souls. Niles and White followed the group for three years, until its members could reunite with surviving friends and family. The resulting picture, The Refugee Allstars, has been well received in both the film and music worlds. It was recently screened in Vermont as part of the Vermont International Film Festival. Once out of the camps, SLRAS fulfilled their ambition to put their vibrant tunes to tape. With only a week to record, they hunkered down in a windowless studio in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where they powered their musical equipment with gas generators. The fruits of these sessions were recently released by Epitaph Records offshoot, Anti. Appropriately titled Living Like a Refugee, the music chronicles Koroma & Co.’s many hardships. But ultimately, it is hopeful, with buoyant rhythms and soulful harmonies custommade for dancing. The nine-member touring incarnation of SLRAS will perform at the Barre Opera House on Friday, October 27, in a benefit for the Vermont Refugee Assistance Program. Seven Days recently tracked down Koroma in Guinea, West Africa.


problems, believe or not. I became more normal from thinking positively. SD: A lot of American groups don’t have much to complain about, but sometimes they complain a lot, especially in their music. Do you think you could serve as an example to other musicians around the world? RK: Yeah, I think so! But it all depends. Sometimes there are people who are realistic, but then there are others who refuse to accept the truth. I believe the musician should be someone who is courageous, someone who is patient. SD: Your band mates come from different life experiences. What was the common ground when you first came together? RK: The common ground was just music. It’s kind of a universal language. We can play music together even if you don’t understand the same language as me. SD: I know a lot of other people in the camps, non-musicians, embraced your music and looked to it as a source of spiritual relief. Did you ever encounter any resistance? RK: Well, yes, because for every good

thing there’s always somebody who doesn’t like good things! It’s just a part of nature. I can remember once when we were playing for people, someone got mad and said, “What are you doing? What kind of music are you playing?” He grabbed a hand drum and started spoiling everything. So the spectators ran against him and beat him because of that. In every society you naturally have people who don’t like good things. SD: How accurately does the movie portray you and your fellow refugees’ struggle? RK: I don’t know exactly how Zach Niles and Banker White heard about us. But at that time the group was so much popular in the refugee camps. Those two were looking out for people like us. But they never disclosed why they were doing it. We didn’t know what a documentary film means. We thought they were just taking our pictures to make fun in America or elsewhere. SD: So you had no idea it was going to turn out like it did? RK: Never!

SD: There are continuing crises in other parts of the world, like Darfur. What do you think people like me can do to help those situations? RK: I think ordinary Americans can help the suffering masses by writing articles about these things, and talking out about the situations that should not be. Maybe people in authority will hear them, because they’re in the West. If they speak for the inarticulate masses, someone will hear. You can also help by donating something, and by simply giving ideas. SD: Did you and your band mates always feel that you’d continue to play together? RK: Yes, we are all musicians and that’s what we do. We still go to refugee camps to play. That’s part of our objective — to help other refugees. But we need assistance, too from other organizations. We


are just the talent! But it doesn’t cost us anything, and we’ll give it out at any time. SD: Has the situation improved in Sierra Leone? RK: Yes, Sierra Lone is much better now. We can only cry for electricity; there are no lights in the city. And there is unemployment. The youths really want to work, but there are no jobs. And most of the houses are destroyed, so we are crying that they are repaired. Lodging is a problem in Freetown. But security-wise, we can go out. You can travel all over the country without having fear, like before. I tell you, my brother: Peace is the foundation of development. m

As expected, there’s so much music going on this Halloween week, it’s positively scary. Revelers can expect plenty of treats, from hip-hop to punk-rock. There’ll likely be some tricks, too. Make sure not to take anything home that isn’t wrapped; razor blades in apples hurt more than hangovers. Well, most of ’em, anyway. The following are just a few of your All Hallow’s Eve options. Everyone’s favorite old-time ghouls The Jugtown Pirates of Lake Champlain will resurrect their popular “Jugtown Masquerade” at Higher Ground on Friday, Oct. 27. This year’s club-wide event is sponsored by Magic Hat Brewery, whose Night of the Living Dead ale nicely fits the overall spirit. Performers include local funksters Turkey Bouillion Mafia, as well as the Russian-born DJ Vadim, an internationally renowned turntablist. Rounding out the bill are hip-hoppers Mr. Invisible and Soul Rebel. As you may have guessed, costumes are encouraged at this all-ages bash. Tickets are $10 advance, $12 day of show. Visit for the full skinny. If you’re into synchronicity and munchkins, you’ll wanna check out “The Dark Side of the Rainbow,” which combines Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon with the beloved movie The Wizard of Oz. As enterprising stoners (an oxymoron, perhaps) discovered decades ago, weird coincidences occur when the album is used as the film’s soundtrack. See and hear for yourself at a free, 7 p.m. showing at Barre’s Video Vision Studios. There are at least three spook-worthy events to choose from on Saturday night. First up is the Langdon Street Café’s 3rd Annual Masquerade Ball. Every year, the popular Montpelier venue hosts a bash to celebrate the anniversary of its opening. This time around, space-reggae groovers MadDub and ’80s covers crew Sputnik will provide the sounds. The latter is a central Vermont supergroup composed of Jay Ekis, Anaïs Mitchell, Noah Hahn and Sara Grace. Although most Langdon St. performances are free, this one costs 10 bucks. Tickets are available at the café on a first-come, first-served basis. Call 223-8667 for more info. The fiends at Winooski’s Monkey House have whipped a little soirée of their own. “A Swamp Thing Halloween” includes musical performances by Ryan Ober, Monoprix, Heller Highwater and Echoing August. There will also be an 8 p.m. showing of the German expressionist classic, The Golem. Considered the inspiration for Frankenstein, the flick is based on an old Yiddish folk tale concerning a clay man brought to life through strange magic. Eastern European music nut David Symons will provide a real-time, improvised soundtrack to the silent film. This show costs a devilish $6.66.

Back in Burlington, art-rock veterans Swale will host a night of freaky fun at Parima. For this gig, the band will metamorphose into Lou Reed clones, performing the rocker’s classic 1972 album Transformer in its entirety. According to singer/keyboardist Amanda Gustafson, the event has special significance. “With the closing of 135 Pearl, this Halloween marks the first year the Queen City hasn’t had a performance venue explicitly inviting gay brothers and sisters to come down and party,” she says. “Swale also feels a particular debt to [ex-135 Pearl owner] Robert Toms, who opened up his doors for us and many other bands last winter. This is our little thank you. And the album fucking rules.” Also scheduled to appear are electro-goddess Dame Heloise Williams and DJ DJ Revolution Lady Sticky Fingers. The $3 show will likely kick off at 9 p.m. Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year — not exactly the wildest party night of the week. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of fun to be had. West Coast hip-hop legend DJ Revolution will be making a special appearance at Burlington’s Plan B on Oct. 31. Revolution is best known as the resident DJ on the syndicated radio program “The Wake Up Show,” which is the most widely heard hip-hop broadcast on the planet. A master of breakbeat, Revolution’s creativity with wax is unparalleled. Also appearing at the show/costume party are DJs Francise, Anubus and Fattie B. The $15 tickets are available in Burlington at both Steez and Pure Pop Records. For more info, call 310-4700. ECHO on Burlington’s Waterfront is hosting an all-ages Halloween party featuring musical performances by Lee & S.I.N., Pilot Elsmere, Sirsy, N.Y.T., DJ FTS and Face One. Expect a frightening mix of rock and hip-hop at the event, which is sponsored by the United College Club. The festivities kick off at 7 p.m. and cost $5. What Halloween would be complete without punk pranksters The Dirty Blondes? Not to be outdone, the rowdy ’n’ ribald group is throwing a bash of its own at Burlington’s Red Square. As it turns out, the show will also serve as TDB’s seventh birthday party. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite local celebrity; according to a band rep, there will even be a “Bill Mullins look-alike contest.” No chance of me winning; I’m too short and well shorn. There’s also a rumor going around that the band will “cover Swale covering Lou Reed covering the Dirty Blondes.” That’s, like, totally meta.

EXIT STAGE LEFT Every few years, Burlington experiences an exodus of some of its most talented musicians. Not to worry; many of them eventually return, drawn back by the exceedingly grim winters and low-paying gigs. I mean, um, close-knit-community and laid-back vibe. Recently, the Queen City saw the departure of gifted troubadour Ryan Power for rural Arkansas. Before that, ex-Middle Eight man David Stockhausen left for San Francisco. Now singer-songwriter/drummer extraordinaire Neil Cleary is splitting town for Boston. “It’s funny because historically . . . well, let’s just say I’ve never loved Boston,” Cleary recently told me. So why the Neil Cleary sudden rush to Beantown? “I’ve been making a living off playing gigs for a year and a half, which is unbelievable to me,” he explained. “It’s been a ridiculous run of luck, and I figured if I wanted to continue, it was about time to respond with some action.” The move definitely makes sense career-wise. “I know a bunch of people in Boston, including Laura Cortese, who I’ve been touring with for most of this year,” Cleary continued. “As strange as it sounds to call traveling and playing a drum set work, there’s a lot more of it to be had down there.” Cleary, who is “90 percent done” with his upcoming solo album, has an odd way of reassuring those who’ll miss him. “As I’ve been telling my friends, if worse comes to worst, I’ll be miserable for a year and write a lot of great songs,” he said. A going-away party of sorts takes place at Cleary’s frequent haunt, Radio Bean, on Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m. “I’m hoping to do a range of stuff, probably most of the new album, and maybe get Brett Hughes up for some old Whateverly Brothers numbers,” he relates. “Whatever I can fit into an hour and a half before I get too drunk and start crying.”

A FRIENDLY REMINDER Just wanted to let you know that Bay Area pop weirdos Deerhoof are coming to Higher Ground on Wednesday, Nov. 1. Sharing the bill are indie-rock bro-and-sis darlings Fiery Furnaces and locals The Cush. More info on that show next week. For now, just take my damn word for it and grab some tickets.

true hip-hop original. In fact, many credit him with coining the phrase. Bambaataa was instrumental in the genreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development, throwing rap-centric block parties as far back as the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. Throughout subsequent decades, he explored new sounds, combining vinyl, drum machines and computer-generated blips and bleeps.

Joining him are The Aztext, and DJs Craig Mitchell and Chris Pattison.

(Self-released, CD)

(Rolling Tide Records, CD)

The last I heard from local multi-instrumentalist Rob Voland, he was leading a promising indie-rock band called Transit. Not sure if that group is still together, but judging from Voland’s fine solo effort, Springinsfeld, it might not matter anymore. Voland’s new release contains seven downtempo pop songs with lots of experimental trappings. It’s hard to believe such a full sound was captured on a just a four-track cassette recorder. Much of the production credit goes to fellow songwriter Ryan Power, who, in addition to contributing drums, organ and keyboards, handled the recording and mixing

Singer-songwriter Steve Forbert was born in Meridian, Mississippi, but he made his musical mark in 1970s Greenwich Village. By the end of the decade, he was opening for the Talking Heads at the now-defunct CBGB nightclub — not bad for a Southern folkie. Shortly after, he signed to Columbia Records. Forbert’s first two records were certifiable hits, with his 1979 single, “Romeo’s Tune,” cracking the Top 20. But the early success came with unwanted baggage. Forbert was tagged “the next Dylan” by overzealous critics who took his raspy voice and adventurous narratives as a kind of unfulfilled prophecy. Label difficulties and diminishing sales soon followed. Forbert came back strong in the ’90s, however, releasing several well-received records on smaller imprints. His latest disc is a live offering, recorded with keyboardist/accordion player/background vocalist Paul Errico. Titled It’s Been A Long Time: Live Acoustic, the album showcases Forbert’s gifts in a strippeddown setting. At 23 tracks, it’s probably not the best starting point for Forbert neophytes. But longtime fans will no doubt find the well-sequenced mix of classics and newer material welcome. It’s a treat to hear Forbert interact with the audience; his banter is affably dry. Such sardonic good humor can’t be faked, and no doubt comes from having experienced the ups and downs of a longtime troubadour. “This is a trilogy… of complaints,” Forbert states as he launches into the bluesy opening chords of “On the Streets of This Town.” The tune is littered with references to Forbert’s topsy-turvy career: “I signed your dotted line / Did my best to try and give all I could give / And all I’ve gotten back / Is the feeling that I lack what I’m needing to live,” he intones gruffly. Fan favorite “Complications” isn’t as smooth as the Jackrabbit Slim original, but I actually prefer this more ragged rendition. Interestingly, the tune keeps evolving: “Tony planned a little trip to Florida / Gonna find a little fun in the Gulf Coast region towns he’d never seen / He was packin’ up his suitcase as the Weather Channel said / Katrina, Hurricane, Biloxi… Look out, New Orleans,” Forbert sings. The CD closes with Forbert’s best-known number, “Romeo’s Tune.” Gone is the smooth, ’70s soft-rock production; this version features only dinky keyboards, trebly acoustic and Forbert’s strained voice. It’s still pretty affecting, but that paper-thin guitar tone has got to go. Forbert loyalists will likely be treated to a lot of these tunes when he performs at the Valley Players Theater in Waitsfield on October 28. This disc could make a fine memento.

chores. As I’ve noted in past reviews, the dude is talented. So is Voland. His fractured melodies and aching, Neil Young-style electric guitar pushes the singersongwriter genre to the outer limits. As a vocalist, Voland favors a whispery croon that bears repeat listens. Occasionally, he oversteps his range, but it’s hard to fault him with such spacious music upon which to sing. Opener “Recurring Dream” is built on an opium-funk beat and stabs of wah-wah guitar. The lyrics, which Voland delivers in a breathy falsetto, read like classic stoner poetry. “Smoke swirling round and back / Downdrafts and ice paths / How long will it last? / No telling,” he offers. Don’t forget to exhale, man. “Just Been Born” serves up a meditative groove perfect for candlelit amour, or perhaps a short nap. “Can’t stop wishing for the open air / The breath that follows / When you go so far away,” Voland sings with what sounds like a mouth full of marbles. Call it Codeine Come-Ons for Natural Lovers. Building from a slow fade-in, “Lights Are Out” keeps the nocturnal mood alive. Those with a low tolerance for slow-moving music might quickly lose interest, however. Too bad, ’cause Voland delivers his finest vocal performance on this cut. A squall of well-placed feedback announces the extended guitar solo, which squiggles along with uncanny grace. “Strange, Strange Place” is the sole number mixed by Voland, and he performed admirably. The tune features feathery guitar chords interspersed with the occasional keyboard hiccup; each element sounds well placed. The only problem is the vocal performance, which teeters on the melodramatic. Springinsfeld will likely try the patience of some listeners. But if you like your music on the narcotic side, as I often do, it’s just what the doctor ordered. Hear Voland backed by a full band in a performance at 339 Pine St. in Burlington on Saturday, Oct. 28.

Her musical dad penned hits for Walt Disney and ’50s crooner Frankie Laine. Gilkyson grew up singing backup on doo-wop demos and movie soundtracks. After launching her solo career, she spent many years in Austin, and eventually landed in the city’s music hall of fame. The smoky-voiced singer’s 2004 album Land of Milk and Honey features a previously unrecorded protest tune by Woody Guthrie, and on 2006’s Paradise Hotel, the scathing “Man of God” directly questions the religious authority President Bush claims. UVM Lane Series listeners settle down for some soothing sass from one of folk’s prime movers and shakers. Eliza Gilkyson

scene@ SECOND ANNUAL A.C.E. GAMES Talent Skate Park, S. Burlington, Friday, October 20, 3:30 P.M.

photo: MAtthEW thoRSEN

December 22 will mark five years of business for Talent Skate Park in South Burlington. On Friday, I went there to watch the second annual A.C.E. — Alternative, Competitive, Extreme — Games. I arrived a little bit wet, due to the rain, and a little bit late, due to a competition that went more quickly than expected. The award ceremony had just wrapped up, and it was “open-session” at the impressive indoor skate park. Skateboarding is the most popular sport at Talent, and it was by far the most popular in the A.C.E. Games, drawing around 40 competitors. They were split into high school and middle school divisions. Skaters competed for medals and gear. The winner of each division also received a plaque to be displayed at his school. Aiden Melen, of Shelburne Middle School, took the middle school division, while Chris Colbourn, of Champlain Valley Union High School, won the high school division. Colbourn, a sophomore, won the high school division last year, too. He was still in the park when I got there. Though excited about his win, Colbourn was more interested in talking about the facility. “I skate here all the time,” he said. “It’s the only place like it in the area. We’re pretty lucky.” Colbourn is gaining recognition beyond South Burlington. This coming weekend, he travels to California for Damn Am, an amateur competition. He says he’s focusing on the competition itself, but knows it is a great opportunity. Colbourn hopes to go pro someday. David Wood, co-owner of Talent, was there on Friday. He proudly recounted the run of middle school winner Aiden Melen. “Aiden did a backside 5-0 down the steep hubba, board slid the big rail, and cleared the jump box the wrong way!” Wood gushed. Though I didn’t understand much of the lingo, Wood’s enthusiasm spoke of his closeness to the kids, and of the hard work they put into their sport. SCOTT KUHLEN

As each successive generation of women searches for meaning, they interact with a lineage of ever-more-successful inventors all named Everett Beekin.

SERIAL THRILLER Equinox Theatre’s scary scenarios benefit from the troupe’s experience with gut reactions: Last year’s plot zoomed in on a zombie-borne influenza epidemic that reduced brains to mush. This year, mesh-and-vinylclad spooksters probe the premise of crowd control in a simulated nightclub populated by not-so-friendly vampires, murderers and long-nailed “Skratch girls.” Three brain-dead denizens of Burlington’s live music scene bust out the jams as the zombie band My New Brain, matched by a megalomaniac DJ who turns the turntables on backtalkers. Boost your heart rate with mad beats and a breath of fresh scare at this hotspot homage to horror.

Members of STREB meld art with extreme sport in a way that seems to invite killer bruises, if not broken bones. The Brooklynbased ensemble specializes in risky “pop action” performance, a movement style that features mid-air suspensions, 20-foot drops, and heart-stopping near-collisions. In Wild Blue Yonder, which pays tribute to pioneers of flight and space travel, the dancers defy gravity against a mesmerizing film backdrop. Company founder and choreographer Elizabeth Streb describes the history of daredevil stunt mania, and its gender associations, before the nail-biting commences.

Your Gracious Guide to Love & Lust! Dear Mistress Maeve, I should start by saying that I am a heavy woman, and I have had trouble in the dating scene because most guys will not approach a fat woman. Recently, I met a guy who has a “thing” for bigger women. At first I thought it was strange, but then I decided to give him a chance. When we are intimate, I can tell he really likes my large body, and I feel very confident and free with him. The problem is, he never takes me out on dates. We always stay in and watch a movie or make dinner. I am beginning to think he doesn’t want to be seen with me in public. I’ve never felt so sexy before, but I wonder if his attraction for me ends in the bedroom?

mEN seeking WoMEN

Sincerely, Sarah Dear Sarah, Being a sexy, curvy woman myself, I can sympathize with you. It is not easy being the most ample woman in the club watching Barbie-girls scoop up all the eligible men. As for your new beau, he’s a fetishist. When we think of fetishes, what comes to mind is images of foot worship and men wearing women’s underthings. In reality, anything can be fetishized — including you.

mEN seeking… DWM, 45 YO, slim, NS/ND, tired of games. Seeks open-minded F (or shemale) for pleasure, friendship more and no dependents, no games, no hang-ups. Only serious need reply.

ISO MARIE ANTOINETTE with sparkling eyes for SWPM, 50 YO. This NSSWF will lose her pompadour head over her soulmate LTR. Her fate is cast in her necklace when magical mutual fantasies arise and true love is heaven sent. 4280

fulfilling his innermost fantasies by sleeping with you. It all comes down to what you want to get out of this relationship. If he makes you feel hot and sexy, perhaps you want to pursue a strictly sexual relationship with him — safely, of course. But if you’re looking for a long-term love relationship, I think you’re barking up the wrong tree. Before you give up completely, though, try to talk to him about your concerns. Perhaps he is just oblivious to your needs. If he doesn’t respond to your request for a more social dating routine, I suggest you move on. Honey, if you’re good enough in the sheets, you should be good enough for the streets.

With chub love,

Tristan Are you my Iseult? Hello. My name is Tristan and I am looking for my one, true, forever family. I am a handsome 4 year old neutered male mixed breed dog - maybe Husky/Collie. I am playful, rambunctious, affectionate, social, energetic, and talkative. Basically, I am one cool, fun, and loving dude! I enjoy being outside and seem to really crave attention from staff. I tend to be very vocal initially, but then will calm down and hang out after a bit. I am looking for a family with kids 8 and up who won't be overwhelmed with my tendency to jump up. Canine buddies whether in the home or at the dog park would be awesome! With some basic training - I already know 'sit' - lots of exercise, and plenty of love, I will make a wonderful companion! How 'bout it? Is this lasting love at first sight? Visit me at HSCC, 142 Kindness Court, South Burlington, Tuesday through Friday, from 1 to 6 pm, or Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. 862-0135.
