GETTING ALONG I wish to respond to Peter Kurth’s September 14 column “The Hurricane Mutiny?” [“Crank Call”]. While I do feel that plenty of people are dissatisfied with President Bush and his administration, the administration neither feels responsible nor is responsive to the public as a whole or as individuals (e.g., Cindy Sheehan, who had genuine grounds for complaint). I have watched with bemusement in the past year as the administration seems to continue to bend people backwards. No incident has emerged as the straw snapping the camel’s back. Instead, I feel like the public has bent over backwards so much that it could win a limbo championship by now. I long ago stopped believing that my actions had any impact on the federal government. Living in Alaska last year, I also realized that plenty of people in other locales weren’t nearly as dissatisfied with the government as I was. I question when Bush and his cronies will take ownership (in our ownership society) of what they’ve done. Meanwhile, I just plug away at my little life and try to carve out change where I can.

contained Thimerosal, and our doctor insisted all the vaccines in his practice are Thimerosal-free, except the flu shot. Since our oldest son has been diagnosed with autism, I have been very cautious, and I asked to see the insert that comes with each vaccine. To our doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise, the vaccine contains Thimerosal. This is not an isolated case â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there are parents throughout the state who have similar stories after checking the vaccine inserts. Vermont needs to follow the lead of California, Illinois, Iowa,

Missouri, Delaware and, just recently, New York (August 2005) and ban Thimerosal. When one in 166 kids is living with autism today compared to one in 10,000 kids in the 1990s, misinformation does not help to find out why there is now an epidemic. Angela Timpone MONTPELIER

As is David Ray Griffin for collecting in his book, The New Pearl Harbor, the many problems raised by the events of that day. He strongly calls for the kind of investigation avoided by the 9/11 Commission (the subject of his second book), which would specifically address the contradictions. Griffin does feel that the facts cannot be explained without some form of administration involvement. He suggests eight possible levels of complicity, from 1) taking advantage of events to accomplish a preexisting agenda, to 8) active involvement in planning and execution. He leaves it to the reader to decide which level might explain each discrepancy. Example: Someone had to get NORAD to stand down in its protection of Washington â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a Muslim janitor.

REVIEWER REVIEW In a short, unattributed commentary [Art spotlight, September 14] on the work of Brian Burkhardt and Edythe Wright, presently on view at the Firehouse Gallery, someone states that the works are â&#x20AC;&#x153;formally engaging, albeit conceptually clichĂŠ.â&#x20AC;? This is inept and inadequately informed art writing; the work deserves more engaged and intelligent commentary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ClichĂŠâ&#x20AC;? more aptly describes the traditional styles of abstract and pastoral/landscape painting that most often get reviewed in Seven Days. It also describes the hackneyed, commonplace (albeit stilted) praises your reviewer takes such delight in heaping on such work. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some fine contemporary work being shown in Burlington these days, and some serious curatorial effort is being made to select and present this work in its larger current context. These efforts deserve more than this sort of reactionary blow-off. Peter Gallo HYDE PARK

People’s Republic of Burlington, a public official would and could order the censorship of an original art work simply because she found its antiwar message “unacceptable.” The artwork in question was the giant mural that artist Ron Hernandez — — painted on the side of the little red brick Burlington Electric Department storage building on Pine Street. For last year’s Art Hop, Airbrush Ron painted a giant Buddha face on the front. It was pretty cool, and certainly brought life to what most Pine Street passersby considered an abandoned, graffiti-covered building. “Seeing that the state of affairs in this country was heading down the toilet,” Hernandez told “Inside Track,” “I thought that people needed something to reflect on. So last year I painted Buddha as a way for folks to reflect on what’s right and what’s wrong. This year, I thought I had to make it more obvious, so in came the tsunami.” Hernandez airbrushed his newest creations — two giant waves — onto the previously blank north and south walls of the brick BED structure during the first week of September, just before the popular annual Art Hop. On the north side of the building, however, he added something extra in the lower left corner. In the original, the viewer’s eye is caught by the giant blue wave on the right, a tsunami curling 30 feet high, with red and yellow flowers spilling out of its white frothy foam. Then the eye follows the floral froth to its impending, inevitable landing zone. But instead of a sandy beach in the lower left corner, there’s a blackened silhouette of rockets, soldiers, turret-

trous Bush invasion of Iraq. So did Sen. Jim Jeffords. Surely, the votes of politicians regularly elected by 2-1 majorities reflect the Vermont mainstream? Three years ago, before Bush pulled the trigger, the Burlington City Council adopted an antiwar resolution that, among other things, expressed “our opposition to the United States’ continued and threatened violation of United Nations Charter and of international law by its unilateral, preemptive military action against the nation of Iraq.” On Town Meeting Day last March, 50 Vermont towns, including Burlington, passed antiwar resolutions. (Check to learn more.) The Burlington resolution asked the city council to tell President George W. Bush that its citizens “strongly support the men and women serving in the U.S. armed forces and believe the best way to support them is to bring them home now.” The antiwar measure passed in a landslide, supported by 65 percent of Queen City voters. Fact is, Burlington’s antiwar tradition isn’t anything new. Back in 1999, Burlington voters approved an advisory referendum supporting a nuclear-weapons abolition treaty by a 3-1 margin. And way back in the early 1980s, old-timers will recall Independent Mayor Bernie Sanders leading the charge against President Ronald Reagan’s dirty little covert wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua.

Congress Takes Aim at Organic Food Standards — Again SUNDAY FOOTBALL SPECIAL 1/2 Price Bar Menu $2 Labatt Blue & Labatt Blue Light

open daily 11:30 am midnight


VERMONT — A proposal that’s quietly making its way through the U.S. Senate could change the way organic farms, dairies and food processors are certified, according to one national organic foods organization. The Organic Consumers Association (OCA), an industry watchdog group, says that an amendment to a federal appropriations bill is part of a larger effort by the Bush the U.S. administration, Department of Agriculture and large corporate food processors to “seriously degrade” organic food standards that have been in place for the last 15 years. Those concerns arose last week when the OCA learned about a rider attached to the 2006 Agriculture Appropriations

cultural economy, in terms of both the number of farms and their gross sales, according to the Organic Farming Northeast Association of Vermont. While the state’s conventional dairy production has been shrinking by about 6 percent per year, organic dairies are growing by 20 percent annually. Moreover, organic dairy farmers are paid about twice as much for their milk as those at conventional dairies, and the rate they receive is more stable. For decades, organic farms and dairies were mostly small, family-owned operations that adhered to organic practices for philosophical and health reasons. Then, after Congress established strict national standards in 1990, organic foods grew into a multi-

food irradiation and toxic sludge as fertilizer. “If the Secretary of Agriculture were Bernie Sanders, we wouldn’t have a problem,” adds Cummins, who is based in Minnesota. “But we’ve got to be realistic about giving that power to the U.S. Department of Agriculture with literally no checks and balances from the National Organics Standards Board.” But John Cleary, NOFAVermont’s certification director, cautions local farmers and consumers against making too much of this regulatory proposal. Cleary explains that many of the changes in this rider, which were proposed in response to a federal court ruling earlier this year, are rather technical, such as the amount of time cows must get organic feed before the herd can be “certified.” Moreover, he says some of the fears raised by the OCA are “fairly exaggerated” and won’t have a major impact on Vermont’s organic farmers — at least for now. Cleary points out that NOFAVermont did oppose this policy change, nevertheless. And he

Bill. It would, among other things, alter the rules under which dairy farms shift from conventional to organic practices. According to the OCA, the rider would also permit more synthetic, or non-organic, ingredients into “organic” foods, and take some of the authority for regulating those materials away from the National Organics Standards Board to give it to the USDA. Ronnie Cummins is the OCA’s national director. He claims this rider, which has been portrayed by large food processors as a “minor rules change” to the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990, would allow as many as 500 new synthetic ingredients to be used by certified organic food producers. Current law permits only 38 synthetic ingredients, and requires that they comprise less than 5 percent of the finished product. Most of these materials are fairly benign, such as the hydrogen peroxide involved in cleaning organic milk bottles. Organic farming is the fastest growing sector of Vermont’s agri-

billion-dollar industry. Many national producers have since launched their own lines of organic foods — Smuckers owns Santa Cruz Organics, Kraft owns Boca Burgers, and Dean Foods owns Horizon Organic. Cummins says that those large producers are now looking for ways to whittle away at the strict standards, and are using the Organic Trade Association, an industry group they now control, to promote their own agenda. “Standing in the corner is WalMart, which announced that it’s going to be the biggest seller of organic food in the world,” Cummins says. “Wal-Mart wants their product now and they want it cheap. And the only way to get organic cheap is to bend the rules.” The Organic Trade Association is 100 percent behind the proposed rider. Although Cummins emphasizes that it wouldn’t allow genetically modified organisms into the organic food supply, he calls it “a slippery slope,” and notes that it was the USDA that first supported the use of GMOs,

suggests it’s still important that organic producers remain vigilant about any effort that could undermine organic farming standards. For example, Cummins notes that Vermont’s organic dairies remain competitive nationally because they are mostly up against other small farms. Since organic dairies are required to graze their cows, this naturally limits how many cows can be raised on a given pasture, he explains. But there are ways to get around that rule. One organic dairy farm in Colorado found a loophole in the law that permits it to keep 5000 cows. Consequently, it puts out more organic milk than is produced in the entire state of Vermont. “Is organic farming going to be taken over by the factory-farm model? That’s not the case yet,” Cleary says. “But things could head in that direction if the organic standards are not vigorously defended.” The 2006 Agriculture Appropriations bill could be voted on as early as this week. m

Vanpool! PEDESTRIANS FOR PEACE Protestors from throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and the wider region marched to the steps of the Capitol in Montpelier on Saturday, September 24. The crowd, which organizers estimated at 1500, had come out to oppose the war in Iraq. They were also supporting the 100,000-some marchers who were rallying simultaneously in Washington, D.C. — the largest antiwar protest in the nation’s capital since the U.S. invasion. In Montpelier, speakers, musicians and other presenters called for the pull-out of troops and for an end to the war. PHOTO & STORY: JAY ERICSON

Sanders Hosts “Town Meeting” on Cable Takeover BY CATHY RESMER

BURLINGTON — People always seem to come out of the woodwork to complain about their cable-TV rates. Maybe that’s because Vermonters typically pay more than their Northeastern neighbors for a service that many consider essential. For basic channel service in Burlington, subscribers pay Adelphia $17.23 a month, compared to the $10.25 a month subscribers pay Comcast for the same service in Manchester, New Hampshire, according to the office of Congressman Bernie Sanders. For standard 70-channel service, Burlington subscribers pay $49.45; Manchester residents pay almost $6 a month less. “The rates for cable TV have far, far exceeded inflation,” says Sanders. “People want to know, why is it so expensive?” Sanders will be asking that question of panelists at his upcoming “Town Meeting” on Monday, October 3, at 7 p.m. in Burlington’s City Hall Auditorium. He’s betting that Vermonters still have a few bones to pick with Comcast, the cable conglomerate that’s poised to take over Adelphia Communications, with help from Time Warner Cable. The $17.6 billion sale, which in Vermont awaits the approval of the Public Service Board, will affect Adelphia’s 100,000-plus Vermont subscribers, and will make Comcast the largest cable provider in the state. It’s already the country’s largest cable TV provider, with 21 million subscribers nationwide.

A vanpool takes the stress out of your commute, saves you money, and reduces pollution. And if you ever miss your van due to an emergency or unexpected overtime, we pay for a taxi.

Sanders has invited Mark Reilly, Comcast vice president for government and community relations, to be a panelist, along with representatives from the Department of Public Service, consumer groups and municipally owned Burlington Telecom. Sanders says he wants to give Vermonters a chance to ask Comcast if rates will go up, and whether they can expect customer service to improve. “We have a right to know,” Sanders insists. Paul Burns, Executive Director of the Vermont Public Interest Research Group, will also be on hand. “We’re looking out for consumers, making sure they’re not being ripped off,” says Burns. “I think it’s a great opportunity to ask what are they willing to commit to.” Another panelist, LaurenGlenn Davitian of the CCTV Center for Media and Democracy, says there’s probably not much Comcast can do about cable rates. She’s more concerned about the effect this media consolidation will have on democracy and free speech. How much power will Comcast have to control what people see on TV? Davitian points out that Comcast is also taking over Adelphia’s broadband Internet business. She warns that could result in censorship of Internet content Comcast finds objectionable. She’s also concerned about the company’s commitment to Vermont’s 43 public, educational and government (PEG) access

channels. The channels — which air local programs, as well as footage of meetings and interviews with local officials — are funded by mandatory fees assessed to cable subscribers. Davitian and other activists worry that Comcast will not honor its PEG commitments. Several representatives from Vermont’s public access community expressed this concern at a Public Service Board hearing on the sale in July. Comcast spokespeople have said repeatedly that they will take subscribers’ concerns into consideration. At the July hearing, Mark Reilly assured the PSB that Comcast will make “substantial improvements to customer care,” and he pledged to honor commitments to public access. The company has also said cable rates will remain essentially the same — at least at first. Residents of one Vermont town will soon have a new alternative. Earlier this month, Burlington Telecom received its Certificate of Public Good to begin offering cable service in the Queen City. Project Director Tim Nulty will be on hand at the October 3 meeting to answer questions about the city’s new service, which will be available to a test group of 70 residents by the end of the year. For cable subscribers outside the city limits, however, Comcast is it. The PSB will likely approve the company’s bid by the end of the year. If anyone has any objections, now’s the time to raise them. m

How Do You Spell Hurricane Relief? T-a-t-t-o-o BY CATHY RESMER

Every Saturday night...


Garrison Keillor and his friends at A Prairie Home Companion invite you to listen in for some good-time music and great laughs.

SATURDAY AT 6PM SUNDAY AT NOON 107.9 FM Burlington, 88.7 FM Rutland, 94.3 FM Bennington, 88.5 FM St. Johnsbury, 89.5 FM Windsor and online at

BURLINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fred Johnston is lucky to be alive. Two weeks ago, the 30-year-old New Orleans native was trapped in a city that had descended into chaos; today, he and his wife Jenese and their 5-year-old daughter Corazon are living temporarily in Burlington. The family rode out Hurricane Katrina in their home in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ninth Ward. When the levees broke and the water rose, they were forced to leave. The story of how they made it to the Superdome, to Texas, and finally to Vermont is horrific. Johnston tells it while sitting on the stairs inside the doorway to the Body Art Studio on Main Street in Burlington. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tattoo artist and is now working there. Johnston has been employed at Body Art before. He met owner Shamus Parker through his own tattooing teacher eight years ago, and has visited Burlington for short stints ever since. Five years ago, Tyre DuVarney, Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood friend, followed him to Burlington to work at Body Art. The two had attended the same high school as well as the New Orleans Creative Arts program together. DuVarney and his wife, Gina, were visiting New Orleans as the storm approached, but evacuated before it hit. Now the couple is assisting 19 friends and family

members who have moved to the Burlington area in Katrinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wake. This makes for a creative and direct way to get involved in the hurricane relief efforts: Get a tattoo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or a piercing,â&#x20AC;? adds Gina, who also works at Body Art. Of all the evacuees associated with the shop, only Johnston and his family remained in New Orleans when the storm hit. Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they leave? The thoughtful, softspoken, copiously tattooed, African-American artist explains that evacuation is expensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re New Orleanians,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you left every time thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a storm, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss of wages, money for gas, money for a hotel, money for food. And sometimes the storm doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even hit New Orleans.â&#x20AC;? The stairwell is humid and stale as Johnston speaks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooler outside, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raining. He pauses at times to cry, like when he speaks of his art â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most of his oil paintings, silkscreens, watercolors and pastels were caught in the flood. He pulls the neck of his white T-shirt over his face to dry his eyes. Johnston reveals that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more emotional now than he was during the crisis. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning to hit him, what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost. Johnston says he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how bad the storm was until he saw the water rising. After a while, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could see the carpet

start to dance.â&#x20AC;? He moves his hand in a wavy motion to demonstrate how it rippled. Johnston had recently replaced the carpet. The family had moved to the 100-year-old French Colonial a few months before and was preparing to buy it. He had just finished repainting and remodeling, and had put down a deposit on the house. He was to have closed on it in a few weeks. Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure what will happen. The ruined carpet bothered Johnston at first. Then he noticed the water in the walls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plaster started to catch the current,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like the house was breathing.â&#x20AC;? When the ceiling in his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room collapsed, revealing holes in the attic that left the house open to the weather, Johnston understood that his family was in danger. He started to let go of his material possessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like I was slowly becoming a Buddhist or something,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My priorities started changing.â&#x20AC;? He and his wife packed their daughter into an 8-foot-long, flatbottomed boat that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bought a short time before. He planned to paddle to his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house half a mile away; they could no longer walk there. But he found boating difficult, too, because there was a current.

SEVEN DAYS | september 28-october 05, 2005

Âťnews The familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation quickly became life-threatening. The boat capsized. They rested briefly on the roof of an SUV, then climbed back into the uprighted boat. Johnston worried about keeping afloat, so he got out and clung to a fence, towing his family forward. He cut himself repeatedly; the lacerations on his palms are still healing. At the base of his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street, Johnston broke down a porch door with his elbow, to let his family rest. To get to his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, they had to cross a street that was now a river. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like, you have to get to the end of Church Street, but you have to cross Main Street,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both flooded. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strong current. If you miss your calculations, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in trouble.â&#x20AC;? And the current wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filled with oil, transmission fluid from the cars,â&#x20AC;? Johnston says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could smell the gas.â&#x20AC;? When he and his wife reached his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s porch, pulling their daughter in the boat, the neighbors cheered. Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, brother and brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend were upstairs; the first floor was flooded. They salvaged a little food from the kitchen. The relief was only temporary, however. The family had a battery-powered radio, but what they heard was unhelpful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were looking to survive,â&#x20AC;? Johnston says, exasperated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you wanted to know where the relief effort was coming, there was no such thing. It was so much rhetoric. It hurt to listen to the radio sometimes, because you just wanted to know what to do.â&#x20AC;? They had heard that they should go to the Superdome, 4 miles away, but decided to put it off as long as possible. Johnston paddled home to get a few things, including his three guns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like guns,â&#x20AC;? he confides, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just own them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you need to survive in this world.â&#x20AC;? On the way back, he passed groups of people on porches who asked him to bring his boat their way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you might see 10 people on the porch,â&#x20AC;? Johnston says. When he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop, they swore at him. At one point, two young men asked for a ride. He ignored them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then they start talking about what they going to do to me to get my boat,â&#x20AC;? he says, staring off into the distance. Johnston says he picked up his rifle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made them see me load it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Made sure they heard me load it. Then they stopped talking.â&#x20AC;? Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family stayed at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house for three days, during which life became simple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about food, water, shit, sleep,â&#x20AC;? he says. Johnston started taking cigarettes, alcohol, food and medicine from nearby stores â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his mother had had invasive heart surgery just days earlier. What he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use, he bartered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear on television, they were calling it looting,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How are you going to say that these people who have nothing, they hardly have their lives, are looting . . . If I would have waited on the government, on any infrastructure in America, I would be dead on the roof somewhere.â&#x20AC;? After three days, they left for the Superdome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The things I saw on that walk . . .â&#x20AC;? Johnston says, his voice trailing off. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about dead bodies, but he describes

the water, fetid and full of debris. The family saw few cops, and the ones they did see made them nervous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like all of them were Nazis,â&#x20AC;? says Johnston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were just holding firearms, they got the ugliest faces on . . . Everybody knows what help looks like. This didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like help.â&#x20AC;? Though they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice many governmental agents on the ground, they saw many helicopters. But the people flying overhead never acknowledged them. Johnston wondered if he should set a fire so they would see him, or maybe shoot his gun in the air. What he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have known at the time is that both behaviors were widely condemned by those watching the hurricane response on TV. When Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family got within a mile of the Superdome, night fell. They camped out against a median wall on the Interstate. One person stayed awake to keep watch, and to â&#x20AC;&#x153;play lighthouseâ&#x20AC;? with a flashlight so they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be run over by rescuers. In the morning, after hearing that people were being turned away from the Superdome, they returned to Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Within a couple of days, though, they made it to the center and claimed a spot outside. The inside, Johnston remembers, smelled like â&#x20AC;&#x153;a hospice and a sewer.â&#x20AC;? After a day and a half, they boarded a bus that took them to Dallas. Johnston compares the trip to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;prison transport.â&#x20AC;? Armed guards kept the passengers from straying on bathroom breaks. Johnston says he tried to buy food from a fruit stand and was told it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided at that point I needed to get off the bus,â&#x20AC;? he says. Johnston and his wife and daughter took their two wet, mildewed bags and sat by the side of the road. A charitable Texan woman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;a black lady,â&#x20AC;? notes Johnston â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stopped to help them. At first he refused her offer, but she was persistent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed help.â&#x20AC;? She took them home and fed them, and let them use her phone to call friends, who bought the family plane tickets to Burlington. His mother and brother ended up in an evacuee shelter in Arkansas. Johnston is bitter about his experience, and critical of the federal government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying the mayor and the governor didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly ask for help,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to know, did the people of Iraq ask correctly?â&#x20AC;? But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also happy to be alive. He says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a religious person, but he likens the ordeal to â&#x20AC;&#x153;a trip to Mecca, a pilgrimageâ&#x20AC;? that has given him a new perspective. Johnston stares through the glass door, toward Main Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All this shit is like The Matrix,â&#x20AC;? he muses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It tastes like steak because they tell you it tastes like steak . . . Your life is made of experiences and family. Everything else is makebelieve. If you had clothes that made you, if you had a car that made you, if you had a business that made you, you are no longer anybody.â&#x20AC;? He gestures at the street, where an ambulance has just passed. The rain has stopped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see the water rising, inch by inch, foot by foot,â&#x20AC;? Johnston observes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you just realize how powerful everything is, and how little control you have over it.â&#x20AC;? m

After arresting Delome Small, 37, and John Small, 46, police explained that the brothers had abandoned the robbery attempt because the cash drawers were locked, and Delome Small, who is on probation and required to wear an electronic monitoring device, was worried that waiting for the drawers to be unlocked would take too long.

Trash Talk Officials in Yokohama, Japan, launched a major recycling effort to reduce the amount of garbage that ends up in incinerators by 30 percent over the next five years. As a result, the city doubled the number of garbage categories to 10 and issued residents a 27-page booklet telling how to sort trash that includes detailed instructions on 518 items. One sock is burnable, for example, but a pair goes into used cloth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; provided that the socks â&#x20AC;&#x153;are not torn, and the left and right sock match,â&#x20AC;? the booklet says. Handkerchiefs go into â&#x20AC;&#x153;used cloth,â&#x20AC;? but only after they have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;washed and dried.â&#x20AC;? The new rules prompted civicminded residents to begin patrolling voluntarily for improperly sorted trash, according to The New York Times. One of the most tenacious is Mitsuharu Taniyama, 60, who drives around his ward every morning and evening leaving notices at collection sites: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. So-and-so, your practice of sorting out garbage is wrong.

Ring Leaders


he future of Circus Smirkus is up in the air. The improbable academy of aspiring clowns, jugglers, aerial artists and high-wire walkers recently announced a â&#x20AC;&#x153;temporary suspension of operations . . . until we resolve internal business issues,â&#x20AC;? says founder Rob Mermin. The sad news leaves a lot of young performers in limbo. Meanwhile, another circus-arts center has taken off in southern Vermont: Brattleboroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nimble Arts. Established two years ago by identical-twin trapeze artists Elsie and Serenity Smith, the trapeze and circus school has become a popular hangout for big-top types. On a recent Sunday morning, four women from Rhode Island were finishing up a three-hour handstand-and-contortion class. Locals come, too. Thanks in large part to Circus Smirkus, Vermont has become something of a rural refuge for circus artists. The Smiths are not â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smirkos,â&#x20AC;? as Circus Smirkus alums affectionately call themselves, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve coached plenty of Merminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students. The sisters were 16 when they first tried the trapeze â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at Club Med, where their physician mother was attending a medical conference. The self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;nerdy farm kidsâ&#x20AC;? took to the air. They both went to college at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and taught summers at Floridabased Circus of the Kids. Serenity went solo for a while, working with Ringling Brothers and the Pickle Family Circus in San Francisco, but the sisters soon reunited and began to explore the duo trapeze. Then, Cirque de Soleil found them. The Smiths toured for years with the remarkable, MontrĂŠal-based company that transformed public perception of the circus from low-brow dog-and-pony show to high-class act. The wholesome, one-ring Big Apple Circus contributed to the genreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image upgrade, too. These days, at least in Vermont, the circus arts are viewed as legitimate disciplines along the lines of gymnastics or ballet. Circus Smirkus had no sooner revealed its financial woes last week than parents started organizing to keep it going. Their press release is headlined, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who will save the circus? Local parents group says the show must go on.â&#x20AC;? Nimble Arts offers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;family circusâ&#x20AC;? class at their studio on the third floor of the Cotton Mill in downtown Brattleboro, in which kids and their parents build pyramids, juggle, walk the tight rope and participate in â&#x20AC;&#x153;group acrobatics.â&#x20AC;? Flying-trapeze lessons are held at the family farm, just outside of town. But all that instruction is a means to an end: performing. The Smith sisters have assembled a professional-level local circus troupe composed of acrobat Bronwyn Sims, jugglers Jen Slaw and Tony

Duncan, actor and singer Patrick Donnelly and clowning contortionist Bill Forchion, who is married to Serenity. This weekend, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll perform â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Love Showâ&#x20AC;? in the funky Nimble Arts studio. Among the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circus and vaudeville acts is a symmetrical Smith-sister spectacle on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fixed trapeze.â&#x20AC;? Whether one is hanging off the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insteps or the two are juxtaposed in mirrorimage split stretches, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a seamless partnership. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it down? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Love Showâ&#x20AC;? 2x1-lemay092804.indd troupers are performing at First Night Burlington. Later in January, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming to Higher Ground. In a couple of weeks, Elsie, Serenity and Forchion are off to Norway with Sandglass Theater to tour a show co-written by Mermin and Putney puppeteer Eric Bass. Between Sand and Stars is inspired by the adventures of author-aviator Antoine St. Exupery, who penned The Little Prince. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about catching air.

High Braise

A IMAGE Stefan Hard

small, framed picture is propped inconspicuously in Molly Stevens’ kitchen: In it, she looks directly into the camera, a huge gold medal on a blue ribbon hanging round her neck, a champagne flute in her hand, and an impish grin dimpling her face. “A friend looked at this and said, ‘You look so happy!’” Stevens says. “Well . . . yeah, I was happy! I was ecstatic!” The photo was taken in April, when Stevens garnered the prestigious 2005 James Beard award in the single-subject cookbook category for her latest effort, All About Braising: The Art of Uncomplicated Cooking. The fact that this was the first major book she had written completely by herself — after many years of collaborating with others — only added to the sweetness of the moment. In this era of celebrity chefs and TV cooks, Stevens may not be a household name. But in the somewhat closed circle of American “foodies,” the Williston resident is well known. Her editor and champion, Maria Guarnaschelli, has long been a powerhouse in the cookbook-publishing world, as is another mentor, Ann Willan, an author and founder of the esteemed La Varenne culinary school in Paris. Stevens is an alum. She’s also a contributing editor to Fine Cooking magazine, and has co-written books with New York editors Fran McCullough and Roy Finamore. In Vermont, Stevens’ food fans can be found at the New England Culinary Institute — where she taught for years — and among chefs, growers and artisan food producers throughout the state. She’s on the board of the Vermont Fresh Network. “Molly doesn’t have a single enemy in the food world,” says Rux Martin, the Charlotte-based executive editor for cookbooks at Houghton Mifflin. “That’s very rare in a business like this, a business in which there are a lot of long knives.” It’s also a business in which “people go to TV school and are taught to put themselves out there and put their own stamp on everything,” says McCullough, Stevens’ co-author on a series of annual Best American Recipes cookbooks. “Molly doesn’t do that. But she’s not self-effacing, either. She has a quiet confidence and an incredible sense of who she is.” “She’s smart, funny and a very quick study,” McCullough continues. “She’s also incredibly curious. It’s not unusual for me to all of a sudden receive a box of, say, Balinese long pepper — which I had never heard of — because Molly thought I should try it.” Stevens, an elfin woman in her mid-forties, works out of her spacious, cedar-shingled home on a woodsy Williston hilltop. Her civil engineer husband built it himself. The kitchen is open and airy but looks more like the realm of a home cook than of a pro. Stevens feels it is important to test recipes on a “normal” cook stove, as opposed to a professional range, and she is on her second GE. Her fridge is not a trendy Sub-Zero, but a Kenmore. Over a lunch of homemade pot roast sandwiches and potato salad, she recounts some of the culinary adventures that brought her to the podium of the James Beard Foundation. Raised in Buffalo, N.Y., Stevens started her own catering company as a high school student, beginning a relationship with food that has become a lifelong commitment. She first came to Vermont as a student at Middlebury College. After graduating with a degree in English, she was immediately “packed up and sent to Boston” with a gray flannel pants suit neatly folded in a set of matching luggage, all purchased by parents hoping their daughter would get a job in advertising. Instead, Stevens says with a chuckle, she ended up working at the Magic Pan eatery in Faneuil Hall. After returning to Vermont to get a graduate degree at Bread Loaf, she wound up living at Cate Farm in East Montpelier. A nearby artisan baker, Jules Rabin of Plainfield’s now-defunct Upland Bakers, gets credit for her edible epiphany.

“Edible Complex” is a monthly column that can also be read on

Molly doesn’t have a single enemy in the food world. That’s very rare in a business like this, a business in which there are a lot of long knives. COOKBOOK EDITOR RUX MARTIN “I had never had bread like that before, and I remember just sitting in my car and gobbling it down in wonder,” she says. “I just had to visit him and ask him how he did it.” Rabin informed her that he had learned to bake bread in France. “I thought, ‘Well, maybe that’s where I should go.’” During the three years in Paris that followed, Stevens worked as a babysitter, a caterer and, finally, a student helper at La Varenne, where she learned the foundations of French cuisine. From Paris, Stevens moved to Manhattan to work at the French Culinary Institute, but she returned often to Vermont for vacations. She met her husband, Mark Smith, on a ski trip. They moved back in 1988, and Stevens promptly got a job at the New England Culinary Institute. Near the end of her eight-year tenure, she began writing freelance food pieces — the first for Fine Cooking magazine. She went on to contribute to the New England volume of a regional cookbook collection put out by WilliamsSonoma. She helped Guarnaschelli edit the 1997 update of The Joy of Cooking, and started working with McCullough on the Recipes series. One Potato, Two Potato, cowritten with Roy Finamore, followed in 2001. “I worked with 130 cooks on Joy,” Guarnaschelli says. “But Molly was a standout.” To better write the chapter on meat, Guarnaschelli recalls, Stevens happily headed out to a threeday course in Texas, where she spent time in the company of ranchers, butchering cattle. More recently, she spent three days in the South, including a day at the Presley estate, where she helped a cookbook friend style photographs for Graceland’s Table. It was Guarnaschelli who persuaded Stevens to do

her own book. “And when I really thought about it, the subject of braising is what appealed to me most,” Stevens says. She is drawn to the technique because it results in the kind of savory dishes that draw people happily to the table, meals often served straight from the pot, with bread to sop up the sauce. The book went on to win not just the James Beard award but the “single-subject cookbook” award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals. The term “braising,” at its simplest, refers to the technique of simmering a piece of meat, fish or even a vegetable in a bit of liquid so that it becomes tender and flavorful. “Long braising” is the most traditional: A tougher cut of meat is simmered for hours until it is “fall-apart tender,” as Stevens writes. “Short braising” takes less than an hour and is reserved for pieces of poultry, seafood and vegetables. Stevens’ recipes range from the familiar to the exotic, from Yankee pot roast to squid roulades braised with white wine and tomatoes. The strength of the book is that she approaches each recipe with the same calm, clear, straightforward voice of the teacher she was and — through her writing — still is. “Hold a whole squid in one hand (your left, if you’re right-handed) . . .” she begins, walking the reader through the process of removing the creature’s innards, ink sack, beak, quill and outer membrane. It’s a disquisition that ends: “. . . be sure to take the trash out soon after cleaning the squid, since discarded squid parts spoil extremely quickly and noticeably.” The reader is grateful. m

the 2006 U.S. Senate race. SEABA Director Keith Brown told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside Trackâ&#x20AC;? that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody had really seen what Ron did until he did it. I saw it and I thought it was fine, and I agreed with the sentiment.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately, BED Communications Coordinator Mary Sullivan, who sits on SEABAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, had a problem. According to an email obtained by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside Track,â&#x20AC;? Sullivan contacted SEABA on September 14 to express the public utilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s displeasure with Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love the Buddha â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have gotten lots of compliments on that,â&#x20AC;? wrote Sullivan (a former state legislator who currently chairs Burlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democratic City Committee). â&#x20AC;&#x153;While most of us like the wave,â&#x20AC;? continued Sullivan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have such blatantly political statements on our buildings. How about we just keep the Buddha but the wave gets removed?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blatantly political,â&#x20AC;? eh? God forbid art should ever reflect the real world. The nerve of people to express antiwar feelings on public property! Sullivan got her marching orders from BED General Manager Barbara Grimes (also a former Democratic state rep). Grimes told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside Trackâ&#x20AC;? that she really hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked closely at Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tsunami mural until she received a call from a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ratepayerâ&#x20AC;? whom she declined to identify. The BED boss then made a personal inspection. What she saw, said Grimes, reminded her of the antiwar protests of two decades ago at the nearby former General Electric Gatling gun factory. Ah, yes, the good old days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My personal feelings are about as antiwar these days as you can get,â&#x20AC;? said Grimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But since it was a public building,â&#x20AC;? she said, BED has â&#x20AC;&#x153;to serve all ratepayers.â&#x20AC;? Grimes called the Hernandez mural â&#x20AC;&#x153;inappropriate,â&#x20AC;? noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;some people have very strong feelings both ways.â&#x20AC;? Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to offend the â&#x20AC;&#x153;war is goodâ&#x20AC;? crowd, now, would we? Grimes also said she had not been â&#x20AC;&#x153;informed in advanceâ&#x20AC;? about what Hernandez intended to paint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were told,â&#x20AC;? said Grimes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just be a touch-up of the Buddha.â&#x20AC;? Hernandez told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside Trackâ&#x20AC;? heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never before had to inform anyone at BED about what he intended to paint on the little brick building. In fact, he did call BED in advance to see if he â&#x20AC;&#x153;needed to sign off on any insurance coverage.â&#x20AC;? He was told he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;still covered from last year and should proceed with his painting.â&#x20AC;? According to minutes of the Burlington Electric Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two September meetings, no discussion of censoring Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artwork occurred. Commission Chair Jennifer WallaceBrodeur did not return our call. Democratic Mayor Peter Clavelle, did, however. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d emailed him photos of the controversial original Tuesday afternoon. Before leaving with his wife Tuesday for hurricane-ravaged sister-city Moss Point, Mississippi, Clavelle left yours truly a voicemail

indicating our contact was the first heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard of the controversy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to make a federal case out of this,â&#x20AC;? said Clavelle, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see no need to revise the original piece.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Moonie said Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s censored original â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflects a widespread community sentiment that was borne out at the polling booth. This is a community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opposed to this war in Iraq and art seems like an interesting way to express that opposition.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a point, eh? By the way, BED is owned by its â&#x20AC;&#x153;ratepayers,â&#x20AC;? and that includes everyone who pays an electric bill in Burlington. Check out http://www.burlingtonelectric. com for more information. P.S. BED boss Barb Grimes isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly breaking new ground. Censorship has been around a long, long time. Freedom of speech remains a work-inprogress. Last February, the city manager of Lakewood, Colorado, ordered the removal of a ceramic art exhibit from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural center. It was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope Stones,â&#x20AC;? by Air Force veteran Gayla Lemke. The messages painted on some of the stones caused several city council members to call the art exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;antiAmerican.â&#x20AC;? Messages included: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was never a good war or a bad peace,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;War would end if the dead could return,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A real coward is someone who drops a bomb from a protected space several thousand feet upâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the last one attributed to TV satirist Bill Maher. The Colorado ACLU and the National Coalition Against Censorship quickly stepped up to the freedom-of-speech plate. One month later, the Lakewood City Council restored the censored exhibit and wrote a letter of apology to Ms. Lemke. As goes Lakewood, so goes Burlington? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see. Hoyt for U.S. Senate? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Heard a great story over the weekend about behind-the-scenes business types, old â&#x20AC;&#x153;Howard Dean Democrats,â&#x20AC;? who had made a pitch to Ho-Hoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former chief of staff Kathy Hoyt to enter the 2006 U.S. Senate race as a Democrat. At the moment, the current leadership of the Vermont Democratic Party has expressed no displeasure whatsoever with the notion of sitting out the contest so Independent Bernie Sanders can go head-to-head with the Republican candidate, whoever it turns out to be. Nevertheless, the story I heard was true. Hoyt told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside Trackâ&#x20AC;? she had indeed recently been contacted by politically connected individuals whom she declined to identify. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice that they thought of me,â&#x20AC;? said Kathy, who also was chief of staff for Gov. Madeleine Kunin in the 1980s. Our sources say that individuals formerly aligned with Dean, as well as others aligned with Sen. Jim Jeffords, have been looking for a Democrat to make things dicier for a Sanders victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that so many Democrats have already signed onto Bernieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign,â&#x20AC;? said


SEVEN DAYS | september 28-october 05, 2005

Hoyt, “and the fact that many major political actors in Vermont have cast their dice for him, means there’s nothing to be interested in at this point.” Think the backroom boys will give up?

Terminator Terminated? — Surprising news Monday: Sources told “Inside Track” that Burlington attorney Richie Berger, the nominee of Sen. Leahy and Gov. Jim Douglas to be the next chief federal prosecutor in Vermont, was no longer in play. “He’s withdrawn his nomination,” said our source. On Tuesday, the AP moved a story quoting Senate Judiciary Committee spokesman Tracy Schmaller as saying the White House “is not moving forward with the nomination.” “I’m shocked,” said Will Hunter, the editor and publisher of Vermont Lawyer and Trial Reporter. The premier Vermont court-watcher described Berger as “unquestionably able” and “a straight shooter.” Said Berger via email, “It was an honor to be considered for the position, but with the passage of time, and after much reflection, I came to appreciate how much I enjoy the practice of law here and the people I work with. I therefore have decided to remain with the firm.” GMP Exec Running! — He’s been a U.S. Senate aide for George Aiken, a newspaper editor for the Rutland Herald, a corporate executive and registered lobbyist for Green Mountain Power. Now Steve Terry of East Middlebury says he wants to be a Vermont state senator. “I’m a Democrat,” Terry told “Inside Track,” “a Howard Dean Democrat. And public service is something I’ve always aspired to.” For out-of-staters, Terry’s referring to the anti-left, big-business-friendly, law-and-order Howard Dean we all knew as governor. Steve retires from GMP on January 5. Addison County is currently represented in the state senate by two Democrats: Clair Ayer of Weybridge and Harold Giard of Bridport. Flip-Flop — State Rep. John Tracy surprised us all last week when he suddenly dropped out of the Burlington mayor’s race — a race he forcefully had jumped into last March. John-John now says he wants to concentrate on his health-care reform responsibilities at the Statehouse. Oopsie! — How about last week’s column? Apparently the previous week’s was so good that our printer, the Plattsburgh PressRepublican, decided to dump the new one and rerun the first half of the old. Same thing happened to the first page of “Local Matters.” At least the Internet edition got them right. The reprint of last week’s “Inside Track” can be found on pages 22A and 23A in the issue you’re holding. m “Inside Track” is a weekly column that can also be read on To reach Peter Freyne, email

he March 2006 mayoral election in Vermont’s Queen City officially kicked off Tuesday as a 55-year-old, Montréal-bornand-raised fashion designer threw her hat into the ring for the Democratic nomination. “In my twenties, while living in New York City as a union costume designer,” said Democratic State Sen. Hinda Miller, “I came to Burlington the summer of 1977 to work at the Lake Champlain Shakespeare Festival at UVM. There, as many of you know, in the costume shop of the Royall Tyler Theatre, myself and two friends created the very first sports bra, called the Jogbra, by sewing two jockstraps together. The rest is history!” Yes, indeed. And a big slice of Vermont political history was present as former Gov. Madeleine Kunin introduced Hinda to the crowd of 30 supporters. It was a women’s-lib flashback moment. We’ve had a woman governor, but the mayor of Burlington has always used the men’s room. For an excellent, in-depth look into who Hinda Miller is, the current issue of Vermont Business Magazine has a marvelous, must-read feature by Joyce Marcel. It includes a long list of adjectives people use to describe Hinda: “sophisticated, attractive, tailored, polished, no-nonsense.” Ms. Marcel also personally found Hinda to be “warm, open, intelligent, introspective and witty.” A Vermont Martha Stewart! What most people don’t know about Hinda is that she became a U.S. citizen just four years ago, prior to launching her state senate bid. And most people don’t know that she was planning on running as a Republican until two jockstraps, Howard Dean and Patrick Leahy, twisted Ms. Jog Bra’s arm and convinced her she was actually “a centrist Democrat.” Burlington Democrats will vote for their mayoral candidate at the January 5 caucus. P.S. Everything went smoothly until the very end, when, in an impromptu Q&A with reporters, John Briggs of the Freeps asked for Hinda’s “take on the Moran Plant. How did you vote?” “I’d rather keep that to myself,” said the mayoral hopeful, explaining she preferred a community-supported solution. “Did you vote in that election?” asked yours truly, on a fishing expedition. “You know what?” replied Hinda, “I think I was out of town for that.” Absentee ballot, we asked? It was one of those “you-could-hear-apin-drop” moments. “Ah . . . nope,” she replied softly. Then, 20 minutes later, the phone rang. A much-relieved Hinda Miller happily told us she had checked at City Hall. In fact, she had voted by absentee ballot after all! Anyone over 50 can surely sympathize, eh?

REPEAT? Regular readers of Seven Days noticed something unusual about last week’s issue. Due to a printer error, pages 9A and 10A were duplicates from the previous week. While the entirety of “Inside Track” and “Local Matters” were available on our website, we have opted to reproduce those interrupted features in this week’s issue for our readers who may not have had electronic access. Our apologies for the confusion.

The Ghost of Bill — His name was never mentioned at the grand opening, but without Bill Boettcher, it’s impossible to imagine Fletcher Allen Health Care cutting the ribbon on its $380 million drive-through ambulatory-care Taj Mahal. Boettcher, the former high-powered, goal-oriented CEO on Hospital Hill, is currently serving two years behind bars for not telling state officials the whole story about what the Mary Fanny’s Renaissance Project would cost. Instead, he just got it done. That’s what they hired him for. Today, everybody appears delighted with the results. The inside of Hospital Hill has been carved out to build the largest underground parking garage between New York and Montréal. On top, the architecturally inviting new Ambulatory Care Center looks and feels like an upscale, three-story McDonald’s. And the cash registers will be ringing from the daily in-and-out traffic. Look, if Martha Stewart can come back after her federal prison term, so can Bill Boettcher. Commander Boettcher went down, but his mission was truly accomplished. His legacy lives on! Let’s face it. Everybody knows it’ll always be known as “The Bill Boettcher Center for Keeping the Cash Registers Ringing.” Thanks, Bill. Out-of-the-Mainstream? — Last week, it was GOP Chairman Jim Barnett calling Vermont’s seven-term congressman Bernie Sanders an “extremist” that drew our attention. This week Democratic Party Executive Director Jon Copans called Vermont’s two-term lieutenant governor “out of the mainstream.” Brian Dubie has run statewide three times. He lost with 41.3 percent in 2000. Won with 41.2 percent in 2002, as Prog Anthony Pollina and Democrat Peter Shumlin split the left. But after Vermonters got to know him better, Doobie-Doo did better and soared to victory with 56 percent in 2004, despite Democrat Cheryl Rivers and Prog Steve Hingtgen carving up the so-called left. How can that make Dubie “out of the mainstream”? “My response is that mainstream views

are those held by a clear majority,” replied Copans. Most Vermonters, he said, support the right of women to make “personal health-care choices,” i.e., abortion. In addition, said Copans, “most Vermonters oppose President Bush’s poorly planned, misguided war in Iraq.” Dubie, an officer in the Air Force Reserves (not Army, as we mistakenly said last week), does not. “Not only do most Vermonters oppose the war,” said Copans, “most Americans have seen the light, following Vermont’s lead yet again.”

What most people don’t know about Hinda is that she became a U.S. citizen just four years ago, prior to launching her state senate bid. Irish Rising? — For purposes of full disclosure, yours truly is of Irish descent. It wasn’t by choice. Dear old dad got off the boat in New York City in 1928. By the time this future political columnist arrived more than two decades later, the Irish immigrant pulled himself up by his bootstraps and was able to bestow on his kids material blessings and educational opportunities he never dreamed of when growing up on a cattle farm in Kilkenny. The story is not unlike that of Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Richie Tarrant. Mr. IDX was not available for comment this week. In fact, he wasn’t available for Ch. 3 the other day, either. Sources say he’s out of the country at an undisclosed location. Have money, see the world, eh? But we fondly remember a previous chat with Mr. Tarrant

about his Irish-Catholic immigrant father, from County Cork, who landed in New Jersey. The immigrant’s son did pretty well for himself, eh? In fact, it looks like there will be quite a bit of Irish blood in the GOP Senate primary. On Friday, Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie officially launched his U.S. Senate “exploratory” committee. He explained his “mainstream” cultural background to Louis Porter of the Rutland Herald/Times Argus this way: “I consider myself right in the middle of my friends and neighbors,” said Dubie, who described his family background as “Chittenden County IrishCatholic Democrats.” Sure and begorrah! However, not all of Vermont’s Irish-Catholics have made the switch to the GOP. In the Burlington mayor’s race, at least two of the Democratic hopefuls will bring Emerald Isle connections to the race: John Patrick Tracy and Karen Moran Lafayette. Then there’s Republican Kevin Curley, too. Hmm. Also on the Irish-American political front, there’s the looming Democratic Congressional primary, where Irish-American Peter Welch will face a stiff challenge from Peter Shumlin, the Putney Pistol. Shummy may not be Irish, but his campaign manager certainly is. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, is she ever. In fact, Kate O’Connor tells “Inside Track” she recently returned from a visit to the O’Connors’ ancestral castle, called Carrigafoyle Castle. It’s located in Ballylongford, Co. Kerry. Just Google “Carrigafoyle Castle” for pictures and much more. “Cromwell took it from us in the 1600s and did some redecorating,” said Kate. “It has three-and-a-half walls and a great skylight. It’s being restored so it won’t totally fall in, so it’s looking better.” Then there’s U.S. Senate hopeful, Independent Rep. Bernie Sanders. Sanders may be of Russian Jewish descent, but he’s known for “getting his Irish up.” And his better half, Burlington College President Jane O’Meara Sanders, is the daughter of immigrants from Dublin and County Cork. Interesting. m

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tricky to sketch the story line concisely, because in this Shakespeare play, the plot is not the point. Like the playwright himself, the central character Prospero has the magical power to control the actions and destinies of everyone on his island.

A production of The Tempest presents many challenges, and director Bent deserves a shipload of credit for marshaling his resources with such a deft touch. The play requires choreographing a large ensemble of actors engaged in a great deal of activity, yet the space never felt overcrowded, nor the action chaotic.

ly, and the Elizabethan humor remains fresh — without butchering the poetry. In this production, the two leads took different and successful approaches to this task, appropriate to their characters. As Prospero, John D. Alexander spoke as if he’d been plucked off The Globe stage circa 1605. His rhythms were completely natural and comfortably lived in; his diction was precise without being artificially crisp. His clear, confident speech underpinned a commanding performance. Alexander took on Prospero’s many mantles, from angry sorcerer to tender father, without chewing the scenery. If anything, he erred on the side of being slightly laconic at times, which was actually refreshing in a role that has the potential to overpower the play. As Ariel, Anna Soloway let her limber body do a lot of the talking for her. She nimbly used gesture, expression, dance and even music to accentuate the text’s meaning. Her coppery-costumed

Sebastian (Scott Renzoni), who oozes with sleaze and sarcasm; and Prospero’s brother Anthonio (G. Richard Ames), the uneasy and ungainly usurper. The sweetness of young lovers Miranda and Ferdinand provides a counterpoint to the boozy stupidity and smarmy scheming of the other castaways. Emily Lyons and John Russell played their parts with fresh-faced, wide-eyed innocence. Their relationship, which Prospero sorely tests, proves the key to helping him ultimately see that “The rarer action is in virtue, than in vengeance.” Claiborne H. Coyle’s richly executed scenic and lighting design helped conjure the island’s magical possibilities. Using a slightly surreal, late-Van Gogh palette of acid brightness, he mixed colors and textures from both land and sea. A looming, burlap-swathed tree dominated the set. Stylized woodgrain designs were painted, and fishing nets glued, on various levels of the stage. On the stage floor, two

Soloway played Ariel with a warm mix of vibrancy and vulnerability, and her singing reflected the same tender charm. There were many strong supporting performances from the 18-member cast. The comic trio of Stephano, Trinculo and Caliban got many of the play’s biggest and basest belly laughs. David Poirier reveled in his role as Stephano, a ruddy-faced, rum-soaked sea dog who stumbled on stage lasciviously singing a “scurvy tune” to women in the front row of the audience. Evan Alboum played the dimwitted, high-strung jester Trinculo with a delicious nervous energy. As Caliban, the agile Diomedes Koufteros artfully writhed his way through his wretched character’s brutalized existence: low to the ground, subjugated in body and mind, but flashing traces of fighting spirit with his eyes. While the comic trio hatches alcohol-induced schemes, the sextet of stranded nobles is rent by power struggles. As the King of Naples, Mark Roberts portrayed the perplexed and perturbed monarch touchingly, alternating between dewy-eyed (he thinks his son has perished in the shipwreck) and doughty (he is still the king!). As the king’s counselor, the loyal and longwinded Gonzalo, Tim Tavcar blended one part gasbag with one part gallantry. Gonzalo is oblivious to the fact that his tiresome soliloquies are driving others to unsheathe their swords: the King’s brother

separate panels slid open to reveal a real pool of water, and a special-effects fire pit (which malfunctioned on opening night but was fixed by the next performance). The abundance and richness of the costumes greatly added to the visual interest. The elaborate variations of fabrics and accessories delineated character status: Royals wore brocades and velvets, trimmed with fur and jewels. Sailors sported rough, homespun linen, while sprites and spirits wore suitably ethereal fabrics. Although some costumes were rented or borrowed, designer Milisa Brinton and her assistant Misha Macijeski created many of the most innovative outfits entirely from scratch, such as Ariel’s shimmery copper confection and Caliban’s grotesque assemblage. Despite all The Tempest’s strengths, it may feel somewhat awkward to attend a play built around a storm fantasy in a time of so much real-life storm tragedy. (Opening night was a benefit performance for hurricane relief, and Lost Nation will continue to collect money for the Red Cross during the show’s run.) Shakespeare understood that tragedy stems from hubris and human failing — which we have seen much of over the past few weeks. But for The Tempest, his final play, he chose an unlikely happy ending, a bold and reckless swerve toward optimism that should inspire us all. As even the usurping Anthonio understands, “What’s past is prologue/What to come, in yours and my discharge.” m

the straight dope



Dear Cecil, Recently I gave a jump to someone who’d left his car headlights on and drained his battery. Because I have a healthy respect for anything containing moving parts, flammable liquids and battery acid, I followed the directions for giving a jump in my owner’s manual to the letter. These instructions run to seven pages. To summarize, they say to turn on the heater blower in both vehicles to prevent damage from voltage surges, turn off all other switches and lights in both vehicles, connect and disconnect the jumper cables in the order specified (positive terminal of dead battery, positive of booster battery, negative of booster battery, body BUT NOT negative terminal of dead car), and let the booster car run for several minutes before trying to start the dead car. The guys from whom I had to borrow the jumper cables treated me like an idiot, insisting that they just slap the cables on in any order, doing nothing more than going from red to red and black to black without bothering with other precautions. My question is this: Is it really necessary to be anal when jump-starting a car? What could happen if I used the slapdash method? Are there any real-life instances of terrible consequences of haphazard jump-starting (but spare me the gory details if the answer is yes)? Connie, via email Don’t worry, ma’am. The scarred-eyeball photo I found online wouldn’t reproduce very well on newsprint anyway. Let’s just stick to the facts: (1) Yes, there are real-life instances of terrible consequences of haphazard jump-starting. They mostly involve eye injuries due to car batteries exploding in the faces of mopes who just slapped the cables on. I haven’t been able to firmly ascertain how often this happens, which has some bearing on how seriously you should take that stern advice in your owner’s manual. But it’s not like somebody just made the whole thing up.

(2) Car batteries can explode due to detonation of hydrogen liberated by electrolysis of the water found in lead-acid car batteries. Some circumstances, like extreme heat or cold, are especially conducive to electrolysis. (3) In light of the above, the seven pages of instructions in your owner’s manual consist of sensible things all car owners should do. Space doesn’t permit reviewing every step, but the key is attaching the last clamp to the car body, strut, etc., not the battery terminal. The last connection, if you make good contact, inevitably sparks, and you want said sparks to occur far from the battery, lest they cause a gas buildup to explode. (4) Except for the rare Girl Scout such as yourself, however, nobody actually does this. Which brings us back to the question of how often car batteries blow up. Little Ed has been calling around the federal government and so far it appears nobody keeps track of such things. (Hey, in Washington they barely notice hurricanes.) Case reports in the medical journals suggest battery accidents are fairly common — in 1978 an MD reported that his Chicago eye clinic treated 62 cases over an eightmonth period. But nobody hazards a guess about the scale of the problem nationwide. Browsing on the Internet I found a couple car safety sites claiming that exploding car batteries cause 6000 injuries annually. However, they cited no source. Finally, Little Ed called a fellow named Carl J. Abraham, an engineer who described himself as the leading authority on exploding car batteries. Abraham told me that in the ’80s he commissioned the Greater Detroit Society for the Blind (now the Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and Visually Impaired) to survey eye doctors and hospitals and such on how many injuries they saw resulting from exploding car batteries. Apparent answer: 6000-10,000 annually. The survey wasn’t published in a professional journal, though, and I haven’t been able to obtain a copy. (Abraham said he included his findings in a petition to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requesting safety standards for car batteries. The NHTSA denied the request.) The number seems high — surely we’d hear more about exploding car batteries than we do. In any case, Abraham believes it has dropped in recent years. But the exact figure needn’t concern us. Some nontrivial number of people gets injured by exploding car batteries each year. Doesn’t that mean you should follow the seven pages of instructions in the manual despite what the boys think? For insight I called up the service manager for a car dealership. Did he know the correct procedures? He sure did. Did he and his crew follow them? They sure didn’t. His main beef was that if you attached the last clamp to some remote point on the body of the dead car, you didn’t deliver enough juice to crank the engine. My excuse for ignoring the procedure is similar: You often don’t get a good connection due to crud on the terminals, so you have to jiggle the clamps, most of which are unavoidably on battery terminals, till you see sparks. Is this a dangerous, stupid, typically guylike thing to do? Yeah. But nine times out of ten we’ll be able to start your car.

Rescued Retrospective Salvaging Lois Foley’s long-neglected legacy

ost of the many visitors who have seen the Lois Foley retrospective, now on display in Burlington’s South End, heard about it by word of mouth. Curator Jim Dickerson didn’t take out STORY any ads or send any postcards to proCATHY mote the event, which opened during RESMER the Art Hop on September 9. In fact, the show is literally an underground IMAGE affair: Hundreds of the late artist’s artMATTHEW works are hanging on walls and stacked THORSEN on tables in a large basement office off Flynn Avenue. But the story of how the Lois Foley, pieces got there, after having nearly a retrospective. been abandoned, is remarkable. Copley Foley, who died of heart failure in Consolidated, 2000, was an uncommonly talented 208 Flynn Avenue, and hard-working artist. Born in Burlington. Groton, Vermont, in 1937, she spent Through October. the last three decades of her life living and working in a farmhouse in Essex Junction, and teaching at schools such as Johnson State College and the University of Vermont. But her influence and experience extended far beyond the Green Mountain State. Foley studied drawing and painting at art programs in Connecticut and New York, including the Art Students League in Manhattan. During a career that lasted roughly half a century, she mounted more than 100 solo and group shows in galleries around the world. In 1995, she was one of just four American artists to show work in the “50 Years Later” exhibit at the concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. Foley was also an activist. She belonged to the Women’s Caucus for Art, serving as the Burlington chapter president from 1985 to ’87, and she produced intricate woodcuts for the anti-nuke movement.


She was the kind of woman whom acquaintances often describe as “a character.” Friends tell numerous stories about her, but they often preface them with the caution, “Don’t print this.” Burlington artist Anne Bemis, who knew her well, says her friend was a dynamic individual. “She would take over the conversation,” Bemis recalls. “She would take over the room.” Bemis also says Foley actively pursued her own growth as an artist. “She was not a small-minded person. She worked relentlessly. She challenged herself. She grew more as an artist, hands

parallelograms. “It was a real revelation to me,” says painter Gail Salzman, who met Foley in the 1980s. “It’s exciting to see how prolific she was.” A life-drawing teacher at Community College of Vermont, Salzman plans to bring her students on a field trip to the retrospective. Foley’s show is also unique because it’s not displayed in a traditional art gallery; the work is actually in a snowboard showroom. The snazzy, well-lit 4500-square-foot space comes equipped with a big-screen TV, comfy chairs and

pigeon poop. Some of the canvasses had been exposed to the elements; others were pockmarked with bullet holes, or had had pieces of furniture thrown through them. That’s the condition they were in when Jim Dickerson, an antiques dealer, met the 62-year-old painter in 2000. The Charlotte resident has photos showing Foley’s giant canvasses stacked in her barn, amid used appliances and menacing piles of snow. Several of the paintings are now on the walls at Copley, complete with four-figure price tags.

Some of the canvasses had been exposed to the elements; others were pockmarked with bullet holes, or had had pieces of furniture thrown through them. down, than anybody I met anywhere.” The depth of Foley’s retrospective proves Bemis’ assertion. It’s likely the first time many of these works have been displayed together. In this show, the large, colorful abstracts Foley was known for later in her life mingle with serene pastoral landscapes, and finely drawn nudes from her student days. Looking at her sketchbooks, it’s possible to trace her progression as an artist. In one, two penciled rows of anatomically correct legs lie beneath a row of legs rendered as geometrical shapes, small towers of circles, triangles and

an Xbox. It belongs to Copley Consolidated, whose owner, Chris Copley, is the Northeast regional sales rep for Burton Snowboards. Most of the year, the room is full of boards, boots and bindings. The story of how Copley came to be exhibiting Foley’s work is strange and sad. Like many artists, Foley wasn’t as good at marketing art as she was at creating it. By the end of her life, the vast bulk of her drawings, oils, watercolors, woodcuts and pastels sat in piles in her studio, or in a barn behind her house. Many were covered with hay and

Foley was filing for divorce from her second husband when she contacted Dickerson to see if he could help her sell some of her antique furniture. He stopped by her house and was intrigued by all the art scattered around. “I’ve never really been much for contemporary art,” Dickerson admits, “but her work hit me immediately.” He and Foley talked for hours. She confided that she was going to have to leave her house as part of the divorce settlement, and didn’t know what to do with her life’s work. “She was just going to walk away and leave it right where it

was,” Dickerson recalls. He and Foley ended up signing a contract: He would bring some helpers and a truck and move Foley’s collection to a more secure location, where Dickerson could clean and catalogue it. He said he’d come back in a month, after he finished renovating Charlotte’s Old Lantern, which he owns. But before he could return, Foley died, and her estate was thrown into turmoil. Since her divorce wasn’t final, her husband, Harold Whitcomb, inherited her artwork. He and the couple’s daughter, Elizabeth Leggett, still live in the area. But Foley also had four children from a previous marriage, including a daughter, Catherine Skiba, who wanted some of the paintings. Skiba ended up taking much of Foley’s more recent work with her to Europe, including the abstract “grass series,” which was exhibited at the Firehouse Gallery in 1998, and a series of string “weaves” that Foley showed the same year at the Rhombus Gallery in Burlington. Meanwhile, the rest of Foley’s art languished in the barn. Eventually, Skiba and Whitcomb locked horns, and Skiba filed a lawsuit. Dickerson and his agreement with Foley were caught in the middle. The end result was that all Foley’s children formed an art trust that receives a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of their mother’s work. Dickerson, who’s charged with selling the work, also receives a percentage. Harold Whitcomb was left out of the trust. Whitcomb just learned of the retrospective and hasn’t seen it yet. He claims Skiba stole the paintings, and sums up the whole situation as “a messy mess.”

Chris Copley suggests it’s unfair to let Lois Foley’s family conflicts overshadow her work. The fortysomething snowboard enthusiast, who sports a stubbly, graying goatee and shows up for an interview in a Gravis T-shirt and camo shorts, never actually met the artist. He first encountered some of her abstract paintings at O, a now-defunct Burlington eatery. When the restaurant closed, Copley contacted the owner to find out what had happened to the art. She put him in touch with Jim Dickerson. Copley has since purchased about 40 of Foley’s works from the antiques dealer. Three large, colorful abstracts hang in his office. He’s eager to talk about them, and the show, though he’s not getting a cut from any sales. He clearly admires Foley. “I think you have to be really brave to stand in front of a larger canvas and say, ‘I’m going to make something beautiful,’” he says. Copley and Dickerson have embarked on a partnership to preserve and catalogue Foley’s work. For the past year, Copley has been storing hundreds of her woodcut blocks and works on paper in the warehouse behind his showroom. There, empty clothing racks and boxes containing snowboard vendor booths surround piles of art. The dizzying array of hundreds of images includes realistic nudes, cubist facial profiles, abstract line drawings, illustrations and dozens of trial scenes from the 1970s and ’80s, when Foley worked as a courtroom artist. “We’re still trying to figure out what to do with all this,” says Copley. “It’s kind of like a treasure trove. It’s a shame it’s all just sitting here.” But at least it’s dry, he points out. He and his mother have been sorting through the massive collection. They’ve also organized a few file drawers’

worth of personal correspondence, which Dickerson also recovered from Foley’s barn and studio. Copley points out some of his favorite items, which he keeps on his desk: a pencil drawing of the Virgin Mary that Foley did in the seventh grade, and several letters she wrote to various galleries and arts organizations. Chris Copley’s enthusiasm no doubt has something to do with the show’s popularity. He really seems to enjoy guiding people through it. When Gail Salzman stopped by late Saturday, September 10, the Art Hop was actually over, and Copley was locking up after a long day of sitting with the exhibit. But when Salzman introduced herself and said she knew Foley, he insisted she see the show. He spent more than an hour showing her around. Copley applies the same intensity to another after-hours tour, with Joan Furchgott and Brad Sourdiffe of Shelburne’s Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery. The two knew Foley during the last decade of her life, and had exhibited her paintings. Furchgott suggests it’s “moving” to see Foley’s work all together. “But I just feel bad,” she says. “Lois was always kind of struggling along. I don’t know that she ever felt she was commercially successful.” Others have made similar comments — that Foley was recognized around the world but never really achieved the level of fame or financial success she deserved. Copley and Dickerson hope to revive her legacy; they’re planning a professional catalogue of her work. Copley has registered the domain name Furchgott thinks all this posthumous attention is wonderful. “It’s too bad Lois doesn’t know,” she says, and then reconsiders: “Maybe she does.” m

FOLEY’S FORTES The exhibition of hundreds of works by the late artist Lois Foley comprises some of the strongest art produced in Vermont during the latter part of the 20th century. Even individuals who thought they knew the artist well have been surprised to witness the breadth of her oeuvre, and the evident determination with which she took on aesthetic challenges. Each phase of Foley’s evolution was built upon a mastery of previous styles that came from practice and research. Her early sketchbooks on display, some of which were almost certainly generated during her studies at the Art Students League in New York City, reveal her immersion in the main currents of America’s golden age of high modernism — the 1950s and ’60s. Foley’s naturalistic figure drawings appear to be informed by the books of George Bridgman, whose 19th-century teachings at the League remain fundamental. Page after page in the sketchbooks reveal Foley’s intensive study of the human form, in a wide array of poses. A few of the drawings are copies from classical sources, but most are studies from models. Hans Hofmann’s “push/pull” theory, concerning the use of space in painting, seems crucial to her later Abstract Expressionist works, but all of Foley’s compositions are formally quite abstract. These art precepts are especially evident in the linear tension of her figurative works. One such large-scale nude portrays a female leaning to the left, sloped over an ironing board. Triangles are repeated across the composition — where a cane leans against a corner, from the model’s bent elbows. But the triangles exist in the context of larger rectangles, as Foley seems to have layered the geometry of the piece. Her use of color is surely indebted to the teachings of Joseph Albers, which dominated all serious pedagogy at mid-century. In the leaning-model painting,

Foley’s palette is simplified to yellows, grays and (Caucasian) flesh tones. This artist’s aesthetic path led her from figurative paintings to landscapes to geometric abstraction and finally to Abstract Expressionism. The latter style may have ultimately been the work that most interested Foley. These works have the tightest color harmonies and the richest compositional complexities. She also produced exquisite woodblock prints that were seldom seen in local exhibitions. Some are as large as 6 and a half feet long. Among these prints are a series with a junkyard motif, cluttered with twisted, jagged forms. Foley’s styles of painting regularly overlapped, partly as a result of economic realities: As with many Vermont artists, landscapes were often her bread-andbutter. Perhaps because of their salability, there are few remaining works of that genre in this show. What is on display at Copley Consolidated are works that either didn’t sell or were never for sale. That may explain the preponderance of large-scale paintings, but only somewhat. Foley certainly realized that larger works make the greatest impression, and her motivation for painting every day, as she was well known to do, wasn’t wholly commercial. Impact and drama were simply primary ingredients in her oil paintings. Foley’s courage to shift gears and follow her inspiration may be her most important legacy. The selfconfidence with which she moved from figuration to nonobjective abstraction seems to have abetted several local artists — particularly women of her generation — to break out from domestically inspired interiors and landscapes. By inspiring others to be as creatively restless as she was, Foley reinvented the meaning of the term “Vermont artist.” — MARC AWODEY

The selfconfidence with which she moved from figuration to nonobjective abstraction seems to have abetted several local artists — particularly women of her generation — to break out from domestically inspired interiors and landscapes. By inspiring others to be as creatively restless as she was, Foley reinvented the meaning of the term “Vermont artist.” — MARC AWODEY

WINGING IT Getting a grasp on Vermont’s furtive, fly-by-night creatures Story: Ken Picard As I trudge up the steep, Mars-like terrain of Copperas Hill on the outskirts of South Strafford, it dawns on me why this is called Orange County. The landscape is rust-colored and barren, and it bears the unmistakable scars of industrial plunder. At the crest of the hill, a huge auburn gash is pocked with two yawning caverns. This is the north cut of the Elizabeth Mine, an abandoned copper adit dating back to 1809 that’s now a federal Superfund site. I’ve come here with a group of wildlife biologists who will spend the evening studying some of Vermont’s most poorly understood and much-maligned creatures: bats. Standing at the lip of the deep, narrow gorge is Scott Darling, a wildlife biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. Darling is setting up a “harp trap” — a 6-by-8-foot rectangular contraption composed of two rows of fishing line strung vertically and spaced several inches apart, like the strings on a harp. At its base is a clear plastic pouch for catching bats as they fly into the net. At nightfall, two of these traps will be positioned in the bats’ likely flight path, about 30 yards from the mine’s entrance. It’s a harmless and effective tool for studying these nocturnal critters up close. And there’s still much to learn about them. Bats are a relatively new area of

focus for the Fish and Wildlife Department, which only three years ago began designating significant funds to their study. While wildlife biologists know a lot about large mammals such as black bears, coyotes and whitetail deer, they remain surprisingly in the dark about the habits of Vermont’s nine bat species — where they roost, how far they migrate, where they’re distributed around the state and whether their numbers are holding steady or, like other bat populations around the world, declining. Bats are considered an indicator species regarding the health of forests, riparian areas and invertebrate populations, Darling explains. Like frogs and other amphibians, they can reveal a lot about the long-term impacts of human development, habitat fragmentation and environmental toxins. But first, scientists need to establish a good baseline of data, something that’s not been done yet. Vermont is home to 25 identified bat roosting spots, called hiburnacula, some of which haven’t been surveyed in decades. Fish and Wildlife only learned of this site, Elizabeth Mine, two years ago. Darling suspects, however, that it’s one of the state’s most important bat hangouts, in terms of the number of individual bats and the variety of

species. This is an ideal time to gather data, since it’s the start of the fall swarming season, when bats migrate to the cave to breed.

As the light fades, Darling calls the group together. It includes Bill Kilpatrick, a biology professor from the University of Vermont; Tony Tur, an endangered species biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Kim Hall, a former Vermont Fish and Wildlife employee who now lives in Colorado; and Kristen Watrous, a UVM graduate student. Tonight’s work has two goals, Darling explains: First, he wants to determine whether Elizabeth Mine is home to either the Eastern Small-footed bat (Myotis leibii), a species that is threatened in the state, or its rarer cousin, the Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis), which is endangered nationwide. It’s an indication of how little is known about local bat populations; as recently as 2000, wildlife experts didn’t even know Indiana bats lived in Vermont. Two years later, they discovered 2500 to 3500 of them in the Champlain Valley alone, including 270 living in a huge, dead, white pine in Middlebury. Darling’s second goal is to get some sense of the total number of bats that use Elizabeth Mine. On a warm sum-

mer night two years ago, volunteers here trapped about 600 bats in two hours. That number is comparable to the number of bats caught at the entrance to Dorset Cave on Mt. Aeolus in southern Vermont. Dorset Cave is the largest known hibernaculum in the state, home to at least 23,000 bats. In parts of that cave, the walls and ceilings are completely covered with dense bat colonies. “It’s a pretty cool place if you like bats,” Darling notes, “and pretty horrific if you don’t.” Vermont’s bat populations pale in comparison to those found in the West. Austin, Texas, for example, is home to one of the world’s largest urban bat colony. Each night at dusk between March and mid-November, 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats emerge from under the Congress Avenue Bridge. When the bridge was built in 1980, the long, shallow crevices beneath its span inadvertently created a perfect roosting habitat for the migratory mammals. Though the nightly swarm of bats at the entrance of Elizabeth Mine isn’t nearly that dramatic, this site is fascinating for other reasons, Darling says. The mine, which yielded 102 million pounds of copper before it was abandoned in 1958, is 975 feet deep, 10,000 feet long and contains approximately five miles of underground passageways. But the mine is also treacherous to explore, and in recent decades has only been accessed by experienced cavers, not wildlife biologists. How many bats live inside is anyone’s guess, Darling says. Luckily, we have near-perfect trapping conditions for getting an idea. The evening is clear, warm and calm, with no moon. Most local species of bats weigh between 4 and 8 grams each — about the same as a few pennies — so they don’t do well in wind or rain. They also prefer the cover of full darkness, which protects them from predators such as owls, explains Darling. From across the valley, we can already hear the distinctive “Who cooks for you?” call of a barred owl. The lack of moonlight is beneficial for another reason: It makes the harp traps less visible to the bats. Contrary to popular myth, bats see quite well, even in the dark.

By 8 p.m., the two harps are positioned along a path at the edge of the gorge, some distance from the mine’s entrance. Darling explains that bats tend to follow natural and manmade corridors through the woods — streams, hiking trails, logging roads — >> 34A

so it’s unnecessary to set up the traps right at the mouth of the mine. As if on cue, Hall announces that she’s already caught one. Donning a headlamp, I hurry to the trap, where Hall pulls a small, cheeping animal the size of her thumb from the plastic pouch. Instinctively, the mousylooking creature bares its tiny, sharp teeth. But there’s little risk of injury — unless it’s rabid, which is rare — since a bat’s teeth can barely break your skin. Nevertheless, all bat researchers are vaccinated for rabies. And contrary to another popular misconception, bats don’t drink blood; at least, no species in North America do. They use their razor-sharp teeth for crunching through the exoskeletons of insects. “Hi, there, little fella,” Hall says, holding the bat in the palm of her hand. She fans out its wings and shines a flashlight from below through the thin membrane to study its wing joints. A bat’s wings, which are structurally equivalent to other mammals’ hands or paws, can reveal its age. Certain bones in a young bat’s wings aren’t fused yet, Hall explains, like those in the skull of a human infant.

larger than the Little Brown one and cheeps loudly. Kilpatrick has been trapping bats since 1974 but it still takes him a minute or two to identify it as a Northern Longeared bat (Myotis septentrionalis). By 9:30 p.m., bats are pattering into the plastic pouches like steady rain on a tent. I stand right beside one trap, watching as some of the animals navigate the first layer of fishing line, only to get caught in the second layer. A few swerve just seconds before hitting the net. They seem unfazed by my presence. Hall and Tur are soon scooping up the creatures by the fistful and dropping them into metal canisters. Nearby, the other biologists stand in a circle, their headlamps lit like miners’, identifying age, sex and species, then releasing them into the night. “Whaddya got?” Darling asks Hall, peering over her shoulder. “Check out those ears,” she says. “Pointy tragus, ears extend over the nose, bald, peachy face.” “Look at the tail membrane.” “I think it’s a Northern Longeared,” she decides. “And, he just peed on me.” Moments later, Kilpatrick informs the group that he’s caught a Small-footed bat, a rare find. Small-footed bats are identified by

In the greenish field of the night-vision scope, dozens of bats dart and swirl around our heads. These scientists care about the bats’ age because, unlike rodents, bats don’t produce large litters that die young. In fact, each year a female bat gives birth to just one pup, which can live as long as 34 years. Finding large numbers of juvenile bats is a good indicator of a healthy roosting site. After careful examination, Hall determines that this juvenile male is a Little Brown bat (Myotis lucifugus). Once the data is recorded, she casually drops the bat where she’s standing, and it flies off into the night. A self-described “bat junkie,” Hall talks to bats the way other people address kittens or puppies, calling them “cutie,” “sweetheart” and “girlfriend.” She wears a sweatshirt decorated with glowin-the-dark bats, and once adopted an Egyptian fruit bat with a broken thumb named “Cleobatra” from a conservation group in Texas. She sports a large tattoo of Cleobatra across the small of her back. “I do belly dancing, so it fits beautifully,” she says, adding, “Sanity was never part of my profile.” The idea of handling bats doesn’t make me squeamish, but without a rabies vaccine, I can’t really help out, even as the traps fill up. Kilpatrick returns, holding a bat with longer ears. This one is

a black mask on their face and, obviously, their small feet. Wildlife biologists were decidedly uncreative when it came to naming bat species. Darling explains that biologists don’t know whether the Small-footed bat, which roosts on cliffs and in the rubble of rocks, has been harmed by human activity or is naturally rare in Vermont. That’s just one more in a long list of bat unknowns. When Hall finds a bat with stumpy ears, she suggests the anomaly might have been caused by frost damage. Darling isn’t convinced. “How can it be frost damage?” he asks. “There’s no frost yet!” Kilpatrick offers a couple of theories of his own: Either a predator nibbled on the beast, or it’s the result of some environmental toxin inside the cave.

For the next two hours, the group calls out findings — “female, adult, Long-eared” or “male, Little Brown” — while Watrous scribbles them down on a clipboard. From time to time, they confer on the identification of a species or let out the occasional “Ow!” as a bat nips a finger. By 10 p.m., the group has captured and identified more than 250 bats. At one point, Darling mutters, “male, Hoary.” “Yeah, right! You wish!” someone shoots back.

The Hoary bat is Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest, a rare migratory species that can grow to 25 grams. According to Darling, only about nine of the 5000 or so bats that have been trapped in Vermont have been Hoaries. And, as with Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two other migratory species, the Silver-haired and Red bat, scientists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether Hoaries number in the thousands or the hundreds. The Silver-haired bat, which was reportedly very common in the 1800s, has only been recorded once in the last 10 years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Darling himself has never even seen one in the wild. Where do they migrate? Darling offers some possibilities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina, Mexico, the Bahamas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but admits they still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. During a lull in the activity, Darling pulls out a piece of equipment the size of a portable radio. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bat detector, which converts their echolocation into an audible frequency. The device is useful for detecting bat calls as they fly overhead, or for identifying one in hand. To demonstrate, Darling holds it up to a bat, which is vibrating rapidly. The bat detector hisses and chirps like a Geiger counter at Chernobyl. Next, Darling pulls out a night-vision scope and offers me a peek. The view is astounding. In the greenish field of vision, dozens of bats dart and swirl around our heads. Others move in and out of the mine. Suddenly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious why I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten a single mosquito bite all evening. The night-vision scope also dispels another common misperception about bats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that they tend to get tangled in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair. Not one has even brushed me all night. Although such myths can seem innocuous, public ignorance, fear and even hatred of these harmless creatures can do a

lot of harm. Kilpatrick points out that in the years before Fish and Wildlife gated off Dorset Cave, vandals would occasionally enter the site during the winter and burn them off the walls with torches. But even nonmalevolent cave visitors were hurting the bats. Disturbing a bat during its winter hibernation can make it expend as much as 60 daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of energy. Interestingly, when the bats of Austin were first discovered under the Congress Avenue Bridge two decades ago, some people lobbied for their immediate eradication. But after conservationists launched a public education campaign extolling the animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ecological benefits, public opinion swung from abhorrence to celebration. Today, hundreds of spectators line the shores of Town Lake after sunset to watch the massive black columns of bats emerge into the night sky, where they consume 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects before returning in the morning. The bats have become a boon not only to Texas farmers but also other local businesses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated that more than 100,000 people visit Austin to see the bats each year, generating about $8 million in tourism revenue. Austinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minor-league hockey team is called the Ice Bats. Darling doubts that Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bats will ever generate that level of enthusiasm, but he does believe sites such as Dorset Cave and Elizabeth Mine could one day become wildlife-viewing spots. And, a public education campaign that promotes their benefits would help Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmers, since agricultural pests make up a large part of the batsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; diet.

Vermonters should also consider the impact of proposed wind farms on Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bat populations, Darling notes. On

the East Coast, wind turbines have taken a greater toll on bats than on migratory birds. For example, biologists were troubled to learn recently that one West Virginia wind farm was killing one bat per turbine each night, a significant mortality rate. Researchers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet understand why. Though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done acoustic monitoring, radar work and thermal imaging, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still no closer to explaining why bats are attracted to wind turbines. The rotors may disrupt their echolocation. Or, the turbinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wind patterns may resemble those found at the mouths of caves and mines. Or perhaps the turbines just look like huge roosting trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, it all gets back to how little is known about bats,â&#x20AC;? Darling says. By 10:45, the group has wrapped up its survey. In two and a half hours, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve caught 329 bats, including 13 Smallfooted ones. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trapped any Indianas, but Darling considers the night a success. Upon reflection, he says it appears that some bat populations are thriving in Vermont. Still, Darling is cautious about making many declarative statements about these elusive creatures. To illustrate, he cites the example of the huge, dead pine tree in Middlebury where Fish and Wildlife found 270 Indiana bats. Though scientists kept a close eye on the tree, when they went back to survey the roost this summer, there were no Indiana bats there at all. So, they sent volunteers to monitor other known nearby roosting trees, but could only account for 17 of the missing animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How did we lose 253 Indiana bats?â&#x20AC;? Darling asks, clearly frustrated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes with wildlife, the more you know, the more you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? m

Forecast: High and Dry Eco-guru Lester Brown sounds a water warning


t’s easy to understand why the Vermont Council on World Affairs would invite Lester Brown to be the keynote speaker for a symposium entitled “The Global Water Crisis.” STORY The puzzle is how Brown managed to PAMELA squeeze it into his schedule. WorldPOLSTON renowned as the founder of the Washington, D.C.-based Earth Policy The Global Institute — a nonprofit aimed at proWater Crisis viding a vision and road map for Symposium, keynote speaker achieving an environmentally sustainable economy — he also travels the Lester Brown, presented by Earth. A lot. A critical part of the the Vermont message he delivers worldwide is Council on essentially this: You think we have an World Affairs. oil crisis? Look at what’s happening Ross Sports to water. Center, St. Michael’s Brown does more than just sound College, the alarm, however; he’s got real ideas Colchester, about how to address the staggering October 5, depletion of water tables, rivers and 8 p.m. http:// lakes. He’s written some 50 books on this and related eco-topics. And he does something that a number of scientists and “sky-is-falling” activists often fail to do: step back and look at the big picture. For example, in his latest book, Outgrowing the Earth, Brown delineates how human demands are surpassing available natural resources, including water, and how this in turn leads to diminished food production. “There are substitutes for oil, but there are no substitutes for water,” Brown points out. Then he takes it a step further, outlining what policymakers should do to ward off worldwide food shortages — a.k.a., famine. The most politically unpopular sug-

gestion is that whatever degrades natural resources should be heavily taxed, while Earth-friendly enterprises such as wind power should get substantial tax breaks. In other words, the prices of our goods and services should reflect their true environmental cost to the planet we inhabit. It’s a logical idea, but flies in the face of the way markets, and governments, now work. Consider all the grumbling at the gas stations recently, and imagine if the price of fuel was $11 a gallon — as Brown says it should be. What would happen to a politician who dared suggest as much?

After returning to the U.S. to earn Master’s degrees in agricultural economics and public administration, Brown then became an advisor, in 1964, to Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman on foreign ag policy. He spent five years in government, then left to found the Overseas Development Council. In 1974, he founded the Worldwatch Institute; the first organization devoted to analyzing global environmental issues, it issued an annual “State of the World” report, a magazine and a series of “environmental alert” books. In 2001 Brown launched the Earth Policy Institute.

line for yet another book, the grandfather of the environmental movement took the time to speak with Seven Days last week. He proved to be as gracious as he is serious. SEVEN DAYS: The symposium at St. Michael’s is called “The Global Water Crisis.” Could you start by giving me a little preview of what your talk will address there? LESTER BROWN: I haven’t thought about it yet (chuckles). No, we’ve been concerned about population over the last century; the population is doubling, but the water

Water scarcity would drive up food prices for everyone. So a shortage of water in Africa is a problem in Vermont. LESTER BROWN

Brown understands the economics of food production firsthand: He grew tomatoes in southern New Jersey while in high school and college. The latter was Rutgers University, where he graduated in 1955 with a degree in agricultural science. But rather than go back to the farm, Brown went to India, where he got an eye-opening education about the effects of population on food production.

Throughout this career, he has continued to write, in a straightforward, accessible style, and to traverse the planet for speaking engagements. And along the way, he’s collected numerous prizes, awards, fellowships and honorary degrees. Nearly everything published about Brown makes reference to a Washington Post assessment that he is “one of the world’s most influential thinkers.” On dead-

demand is tripling. The results are: lower water tables, rivers running dry before they reach the sea, disappearing lakes. As water tables fall, the seed lakes disappear — we’ve seen thousands of lakes disappear around the globe. And I will talk about the connection between water and food. I don’t think most people realize how water>> 38A

FROM OUTGROWING THE EARTH: THE FOOD SECURITY CHALLENGE IN AN AGE OF FALLING WATER TABLES AND RISING TEMPERATURES (W.W. NORTON & CO., 2005) Chapter 6: Stabilizing Water Tables Although public attention has recently focused on the depletion of oil resources, the depletion of underground water resources poses a far greater threat to our future. While there are substitutes for oil, there are none for water. Indeed, we lived for millions of years without oil, but we would live for only a matter of days without water. Not only are there no substitutes for water, but we need vast amounts of it to produce food. At the personal level, we drink roughly four liters of water a day (nearly four quarts), either directly or indirectly in various beverages. But it takes 2000 liters of water â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 500 times as much â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to produce the food we consume each day. Since food is such an extraordinarily water-intensive product, it comes as no surprise that 70 percent of world water use is for irrigation. Although it is now widely accepted that the world is facing water shortages, most people have not yet connected the dots to see that a future of water shortages will also be a future of food shortages. Over much of the earth, the demand for water exceeds the sustainable yield of aquifers and rivers. The gap between the continuously growing use of water and the sustainable supply is widening each year, making it more and more difficult to support rapid growth in food production. With river water in key farming regions rather fully exploited, the world has turned to underground water sources in recent decades to keep expanding the irrigated area. As a result, the climbing demand for water has now exceeded the natural recharge of many aquifers. Now water tables are falling in scores of countries that contain more than half the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people . . . These include China, India, and the United States, which together account for nearly half of the global grain harvest. And as the gap between steadily rising demand and the sustainable yield of aquifers grows, water tables are falling at an accelerating rate. In the United States, water tables are falling under the Great Plains and throughout the southwest. In India, they are falling in most states â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the Punjab, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breadbasket. This country of more than 1 billion people depends on underground

water supplies for well over half of its irrigation water, with the remainder coming from rivers. In China, water tables are falling throughout the northern half of the country, including under the North China Plain, the source of half of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wheat and a third of its corn. The effects of aquifer depletion vary, depending on whether it is a replenishable or fossil aquifer. If the aquifer is replenishable, as most are, once depletion occurs the water pumped is necessarily reduced to the amount of recharge. If, for example, an aquifer is being pumped at twice the rate of recharge, depletion means the rate of pumping will be cut in half. In a fossil, or nonreplenishable aquifer, however, depletion means the end of pumping. Fossil aquifers include the Ogallala under the U.S. Great Plains, the aquifer the Saudis use to irrigate wheat, and the deeper of the two aquifers under the North China Plain. In some countries, falling water tables and the depletion of aquifers are already reducing the grain harvest. In Saudi Arabia, the wheat harvest peaked in 1992 at 4.1 million tons, and then declined to 1.6 million tons in 2004 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a drop of 61 percent . . . Some other smaller countries, such as Yemen, have also experienced grain harvest declines. For the first time, diminishing supplies of irrigation water are helping to shrink the grain harvest in a large grain producer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; China. The wheat harvest, which peaked at 123 million tons in 1997, dropped to 90 million tons in 2004 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a decline of 27 percent. The production of wheat has dropped much more than that of corn and rice because wheat is grown largely in the semiarid northern half of the country, where water is scarce. Serious though emerging water shortages are in China, the problem may be even more serious in India simply because the margin between actual food consumption and survival is so precarious. In a recent survey of Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water situation, Fred Pearce in the New Scientist notes that the 21 million wells drilled in this global epicenter of well-drilling are lowering water tables in most of the country. The wells, powered by heavily subsidized electricity, are dropping water tables at an accelerating rate. In North Gujarat, the water table is falling by 6 meters or 20 feet per year. In some states, half of all electricity is now used to pump water. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; L.B.

intensive food production is. We drink 4 to 8 liters a day in one form or another â&#x20AC;&#x201D; water, juice, beer, pop and so on. But the food we consume requires 2000 liters a day to produce. I did an article on this many months ago, and the editor circled â&#x20AC;&#x153;2000 liters a day.â&#x20AC;? He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you mean 2000 liters a year?â&#x20AC;? I find that a typical reaction. Most of us who read The New York Times know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing water shortages, but not everyone has connected the dots, that water shortages will lead to food shortages. Seventy percent of the water we use worldwide is for irrigation. SD: What are the biggest causes of dwindling Earth resources? LB: Aside from population? Rising incomes. To stay with the food and water analogy: In India the average grain consumption is roughly a pound a day . . . here itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four times as much â&#x20AC;&#x201D; therefore the average American requires four times as much water.

SD: Solutions to nonsustainability and other ecological issues are obviously mitigated by both political and corporate policies. Do you direct your influence toward those arenas? LB: Yes, I do this quite a bit in Plan B [Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble, 2003]. The big problem we face in the world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is another set of issues â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is that the market does not tell the ecological truth. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include all the indirect costs; that is, the environmental costs far exceed the costs of the products we use. The challenge is to get the market to tell the truth by changing the tax system. We should increase taxes on destructive [carbon-based] products and lower income taxes. We should lower taxes for initiatives such as wind power . . . SD: Wind energy is a controversial topic in Vermont. A lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see turbines on moun-

tains. Is it just people who live in pretty places who have this view, or do you encounter this elsewhere? LB: People who live in pretty places â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved up from New York and want to protect Vermont (chuckles). The NIMBY response is out there, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a PIMBY response â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;put it in my backyardâ&#x20AC;? . . . When the local utility near the southern Wyoming/ northern Colorado border announced it wanted to build wind farms, there was a scramble [by local ranchers] to get them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they generate a lot of income. They can contribute to the tax base, the school budgets . . . A lot of ranchers on the Great Plains will someday be making a lot more money from selling wind power than from selling beef. When I look at a wind turbine, I see something that can contribute a lot of energy without destroying the environment. It will last as long as Earth itself.

I also think they look rather elegant. SD: What should government’s role be, in your view, to arrest and, one could hope, reverse environmental devastation? LB: The government’s role should be to get the market to tell the truth; a gallon of gasoline should cost $11. SD: The Earth Policy Institute has as a goal — I’m paraphrasing here — to raise public awareness to the point where it will support an effective public response to trends that are adversely affecting the Earth. How are you raising that awareness? How do you disseminate information to the public? LB: By talking with people like you. Recently I did three interviews on programs on Chinese television.

SD: The Buddhist — and quantum physics’ — view is that we are all interconnected. Yet the problems we humans face are not distributed equally, and therein lies a challenge in terms of environmental consciousness. For example, we have fairly abundant water here in Vermont, and so we may not pay any attention to the declining water table in the Midwest, or soil erosion in India. Is it necessary for people to think globally, or is it enough to simply address the ecological issues in our own back yards? LB: We have to think globally. Vermonters may not see a water problem, but we have to keep in mind that water scarcity crosses boundaries. Water scarcity would drive up food prices for everyone. So a shortage of water in Africa is a problem in Vermont.

The challenge is to get the market to tell the truth by changing the tax system. We should increase taxes on destructive products and lower income taxes.

SD: Certainly a lot of information comes directly from your lips: Two weeks ago you were in China; next week you’re in Vermont; next month you’re speaking in Florida; and the one after that in Japan. Do you find yourself needing to deliver much the same message to people worldwide? LB: More or less. I adapt it sometimes to local conditions. The basic message is the same . . . In China I met Premier Wen Jaibao at a reception. He had read my book Who Will Feed China? [Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet, 1995] and considered it a very positive contribution. I’ve been told most political leaders there have read it. Books do sometimes reach people. Bill Clinton was asked a few weeks back what his top five books were this summer, or something like that; he said Plan B was one of them. SD: Do we have to be in crisis to pay attention? LB: We may be closer to that than people think.

SD: The weight of the issues you’re addressing is enormous. What inspires you to keep up the fight, and to not get depressed? LB: I think because I know that social change comes very quickly sometimes. I can remember World War II. If one had taken a poll on December 6, 1941, on whether we should get involved in the war, my guess is that 85 percent would have said, “Nothing doing.” But 24 hours later that ratio would have been reversed.

he heavy clods of mud weighed down our shovels, and the piles of uprooted plants flattened the rubber tires on the garden carts as we hauled them through the rainsoaked field. I banged my shovel against a rock to loosen the lumpy soil, and then paused to look over the once-lush hayfield, now a hodge-podge of repositioned, end-of-season plantings, wilting from the shock of that unceremonious cart ride. What would Edith Turner say about her storied gardens now? My guess is that she’d be pleased as can be that four of her former neighbors — and four of their future neighbors — had gotten together this Saturday morning to save her gardening legacy from the path of oncoming bulldozers. Mrs. Turner died last winter, and the 7.5-acre parcel she’d farmed on the eastern edge of Burlington for decades went on the market. Her family sold the property to the Burlington Community Development Corporation — the first step toward the construction of a 33-unit co-housing development. Projects of this sort typically raise a host of “not in my backyard” objections. The design and permitting process surrounding this one, in my back yard, has attracted a different sort of attention. Case in point: this celebratory “perennial moving party.” First proposed last summer, the cohousing project has taken several giant steps toward reality lately. The city’s Design Review Board has held hearings on it, the Vermont Smart Growth Collaborative has endorsed it, and the co-housing developers have finalized the site’s master plan. Strategizing is underway for establishing a conservation area abutting the adjacent Centennial Woods, and more than half of the housing units are under deposit. For the impending project’s neighbors — including my husband and me — moving Mrs. Turner’s perennials on September 16 was an important symbolic step. We enjoy a strong sense of community on Bilodeau Parkway and Bilodeau Court, an enclave of single-family homes off East Avenue. In the first decades of its existence, this little cul-de-sac was known

as “the fertile valley,” with the resident families contributing, at a high point, more than 20 children. As that first generation grew up and moved away and their parents died or retired to Florida, a few houses went to landlords who packed them with students. By the time my family moved here, in 1983, our 6-year-old was the youngest child in the ’hood, and only one babysitter lived within a four-block radius. “Hockey House,” a University of Vermont legend, was located on our street for a couple of years, as was another “student house” known to be a popular weekend destination. About 10 years ago, the neighborhood started changing back to what it had been. One of the student houses reverted to a family home, and then another. Now the number of single-family-home owners has reached a critical mass that is attracting even more of the same. Two families who moved away recently made a point of selling to other families. Now that’s dedication to community. Today we’re up to 13 youngsters, and our community couldn’t be closer. We hold a neighborhood Easter-egg hunt, and on Labor Day a potluck dinner and garage sale. Neighbors going to the store ask if you need anything. We water plants and pick up mail for each other. A lot of babysitting and sugar borrowing goes on, too. Those of us who are now the “oldtimers” in this idyllic enclave had worried about what would happen when Mrs. Turner passed away; we’d all seen oversized apartment complexes with huge parking lots shoehorned into back yards around the city. Because of the way the land along East Avenue is subdivided, the Turners’ property extended from the street all the way back to the woods; the parcel buffers the entire southern border of the Bilodeau subdivision. Current zoning for this area would have allowed for a development of more than 60 units — with twice that many cars — to be crowded into the narrow space. Although the land is “open,” it has long been a working farm — a rarity

(Digitalis grandiflora). One of my fondest memories is of Mrs. Turner looking over the blackberry patch into my little yard and commenting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goes to show you can get a lot of beauty out of a small space.â&#x20AC;? Oh, did I brag to the neighbors about that! Mrs. Turner discontinued one of her larger gardens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; behind our house â&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, when she was also in her nineties. Her son took over mowing the fields. When she finally moved into a nursing home and the house was rented, sumac saplings began appearing in the fields, the blackberries went rampant, and her gardens

for the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire footprint â&#x20AC;&#x201D; buildings, paths and parking â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to cover less than 1 acre. A rain-collection system from the roofs will store water for substantial vegetable and flower gardens. The buildings will also allow for the eventual installation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;green roofs,â&#x20AC;? which will provide more planting space atop the housing units. The cohousers want to create a community much like the one we are lucky to have here already. And so last Saturday, in the spirit of Mrs. Turner, the Bilodeau Parkway and Burlington CoHousing neighbors-to-be got together to move

became tangled with fast-spreading purple asters and wiry weeds. The sale of the land could well have meant the end to Mrs. Turnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts, but at all the meetings between the Bilodeau neighbors and Burlington CoHousing, our memories of her, and the beauty of the land she worked so hard to steward, have set the tone. The fact that the CoHousing people have felt their own connection to this land has helped build our good working relationship. Their site plan for the 7.5-acre parcel calls

her perennials from the areas slated for construction to the eastern end of the property, where gardens will bloom once again. Her barn will be moved down there, too, and the garden named in honor of the Turner family. As part of the project deal, abutting neighbors, including my husband and me, will buy extensions of our back yards into the former Turner fields. In exchange, we promise to never develop on them. Except, of course, to cultivate vegetables, berries and flowers. m





khakis and a pith helmet. Her perennial beds along East Avenue were a public pleasure: a time-release profusion of daffodils followed by iris and peonies, then day lilies, rose mallow and more. Down the slope away from East Avenue were gigantic mounds of rhubarb, dozens of raspberry bushes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in a screened enclosure to discourage the birds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and more perennials such as blue globe thistle (Echinops bannaticus), black-eyed Susan (Rudebeckia) and foxglove

within the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limits.

on’t call Nickel Creek’s brand of music Americana. With their blend of bluegrass, folk and modern pop, this trio of young pickers define a genre of their own. When they kick off their national tour this week with a two-night stint at the Higher Ground Ballroom, expect tight harmonies and big hooks, delivered by an attractive band of twentysomethings. This talented trio came together in San Diego, California, in 1989, before its members were even out of junior high. Guitarist Sean Watkins and his fiddleplaying sister Sara befriended young mandolin phenomenon Chris Thile, and before long, the folk music wunderkinds were performing together in a local pizza parlor. All the while, they were honing their chops under the guidance of area bluegrass heroes John Moore and Dennis Caplinger. Festival gigs and competitions introduced Nickel Creek to the larger bluegrass world. After one particularly stunning performance, Alison Krauss approached and gushingly asked to produce them. Not every audience was as receptive, however. “Everybody wants to be taken seriously on a professional level, and not be thought of as a kid band,” says Sara Watkins, now 24. “But either people like you or don’t. All in all, I don’t think we ever won over the traditionalists. Most of those types who were into us were pretty much over it after the first record came out, because we strayed so far from bluegrass music.” Despite their penchant for genre-blending, Nickel Creek’s self-titled debut for

the Sugar Hill label found the band confidently weaving through newgrass and traditional tunes alike. What truly made the trio stand out, though, were their able harmonies. On their follow-up release, This Side, they break further away from their folk roots, with vocal-driven tunes that had more in common with Counting Crows than the Carter Family, despite their old-fashioned instrumentation. On their latest effort, Why Should the Fire Die, Nickel Creek experiment with space and texture and bringing even more pop elements to the mix. “We’re really happy with this album,” Watkins says. “We believe that this one represents us far better than the other ones did. There’s a lot more invested in it, lyrically and musically. A great deal of thought was put into it even before we began recording.” Since the majority of their material contains no percussion, Nickel Creek are always finding creative ways to achieve their hybrid sound. “We laid down some serious goals with this record,” Watkins explains. “Firstly, we wanted to record all of the instruments ourselves. We also wanted to accurately represent what we sound like on stage, and this figures into the instrumentation. We tried to satisfy the songs’ needs, rhythmically or emotionally, with the instruments we had. Not having a drummer forces you to think about things differently,” she adds. “You have to be more resourceful.” Much of Nickel Creek’s unique sound comes from the music they heard as youngsters — from traditional folk and

’grass to ’90s radio hits. “There were definitely different listening stages for me,” Watkins says. “Until I was about 14 it was pretty limited to the stuff I heard at folk festivals, like Tim O’Brien and Béla Fleck. My parents always listened to a lot of music, mostly stuff with a ‘roots’ origin — Celtic, folk and classic rock like The Band.” By the time Watkins hit her teens, the alt-rock explosion of the 1990s was in full swing. “At that point, I started listening to bands like Toad the Wet Sprocket,” she says. “It became more about song form. [Toad songwriter] Todd Phillips told stories with his music and had really great melodies. Everything opened up real fast after that.” Watkins started playing music before she was out of first grade. Although she says her parents would have encouraged lessons on any instrument, she remembers being particularly drawn to the fiddle. “I’d been watching bluegrass shows since I was 2 years old,” she recalls. “Now that I look back at it, the fiddle players always stuck out. My mom wanted me to play flute, but I asked her for a fiddle when I was around 4 years old.” Being in a family act might be convenient from a creative

standpoint, but it can also create major tension. Just look at the fractious relationships between musical siblings such as The Kinks’ Ray and Dave Davies, the Black Crowes’ Chris and Rich Robinson or Oasis’ Liam and Noel Gallagher. Watkins claims that her band avoids agitation altogether. “I love it, actually,” she says of playing music with her bro. “There’s a whole lot of drama that’s spared, because we get along so well. But we have the same family and the same job, and that doesn’t leave you much time to be by yourself. It is overload sometimes. But on the upside, I know these people so well. And Chris, even though he’s not my brother, is about as close as you can get.” Nickel Creek’s fan base continues to expand, and their audiences are generally quite diverse. “It’s pretty wide-ranging,” Watkins confirms. “Lots and lots of college kids and people from their mid-twenties to thirties come out. But there are a lot of parents, too. When we play all-ages venues, people bring little kids along. I think overall it’s getting younger, at least more so than when we were on the festival circuit. It’s a lot of our peers, now, which is fun.” m

<music> SOUNDS FROM DOWN UNDER :: David Ross MacDonald is Australian songwriter

probably best known as the drummer for roots darlings The Waifs. He’s also a talented guitarist and vocalist whose scholarly background in jazz makes for a highly original style. A former geologist, MacDonald claims to have found musical inspiration in the pitchblack mines of outback Australia. With tunes that deal with life’s contradictions and complexities, MacDonald is an inventive and original voice on the folk circuit. Catch him this Thursday at the Langdon Street Café in Montpelier.

soundbites RAP-HAPPY Montpelier is better known as a political district than a hip-hop hotbed. Thanks to a handful of enterprising locals, however, the Capital City is now on the rap map. The urban-music enthusiasts at 1lb Productions and Halogen Records have already enticed heavyweights such as the Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck to the city, and the beats and rhymes just keep coming. This Saturday, October 1, a “Hip-Hop-Tober-

While I’d never consider myself an MC expert, I do recall listening to Kool Moe Dee well before the Beastie Boys broke. Now that’s old-school — maybe I should put diamonds in my dentures. Anyway, first prize includes $100 and an opening slot at an upcoming urban-music event. To sign up, call Halogen Records at 279-9054. Remember, I expect a clean fight, so leave people’s mothers out of it. Doors are at 9 p.m. and admission is $15 in advance, $18 day of show.



Here’s some good news for bands looking to record their next masterpiece: A new studio, called Strangeways Recording, has opened at 71 Main Street in downtown Burlington. Owned and operated by producer/engineers Mike Poorman and Daryl Rabidoux, the 800-square-foot facility boasts two isolation booths, professionally designed live and control rooms, and tons of audio fixins. The studio shares a name with the final LP from ’80s alternative pioneers The Smiths. Actually, the full title of that classic is Strangeways, Here We Come, but Poorman and Rabidoux probably wanted a better fit for their business cards. Here’s some SCRATCH trivia: The Smith’s album was named for a Manchester, UK, mental asylum.

Every once and a while I realize how cool it is that going to see shows and listening to records is my job. While it sometimes seems like I’m never off-duty, at least I like taking my work home with me. Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of last weekend’s musical adventures. Friday night was full of debauchery, courtesy of local punk superstars The Dirty Blondes. This femalefronted rock machine stormed 135 Pearl for a night of booze and bluster that they’re probably still recovering from. The Blondes are fans of high-concept, low-rent performances, and this gig’s theme was a “County Fair.” Since they weren’t allowed to play at the Champlain Valley State Fair’s self-appointed “Awesome Zone” this year, the group decided to throw a carnival of its own. I showed up fashionably late on the grounds that it’s more fun when DB are, ahem, fully lubricated. Well, they didn’t disappoint. The band plowed through a set of muscular punk and wicked tirades, featuring tunes such as “Scorned Woman/Easy Rider” and “When I’m Drunk.” Theatrical rocker Robert Toms of Hedwig and the Angry Inch joined them for a cover of “Proud Mary,” which came off like a salty hybrid of the Sex Pistols and Ike & Tina Turner. Talk about guts ’n’ glamour. Following his brief but spectacular turn, Toms was officially “baptized” a Dirty Blonde. Apparently, the ritual involves being anointed about the face and neck with vodka. Unfortunately, he got some in his eyes. “Now I’m a Dirty Blind,” he exclaimed to hoots and cheers. DJ extraordinaire Craig Mitchell briefly climbed aboard for a freaky little hoe-down. Wearing mirrored shades and a cowboy hat, he led the crowd in a drunken approximation of line dancing. After that, things got a bit blurry, so I checked out in order to save some energy for Saturday. The following evening saw even more rock at Narfax, a long-running indie-rock party palace in Burlington. This well-attended event featured performances by Rob Koier’s Black & Blues, ROBERT TOMS IS “BAPTIZED” AS AN The Wanteds, The Jazz Guys and the debut of HONORARY DIRTY BLONDE. a fantastic new band called Fire the Cannons. Koier warmed up with a nice set of moody tunes in the vein of Elliot Smith and Slowdive. The Wanteds (see this week’s Spotlight) are/is a one-man band from Portland, Oregon, whose guitar-driven indie-pop is augmented by laptop and synthesizer. The high-powered performance was somewhere between Cheap Trick and M83, if you can imagine that. The night truly belonged to Fire the Cannons, however. Comprising local heartthrobs Jonny Aquadora, Shawn Flannigan and Marie Claire, they had a phenomenal first showing. The band is a fuzzed-out, melodic monster, with tunes ranging from jagged rockers to electric lullabies. Claire’s powerful vocals were nicely complemented by Flannigan’s harmonies, resulting in some Pixies-esque textures. Although it’s only a three-piece, the group sounded remarkably full. This probably has to do with Flannigan’s intriguing bass style, which utilizes chording, strumming and all manner of stompboxes. Claire’s guitar figures were elegant and economical, while, behind the kit, Jonny’s scripted bashings recalled indie-rock’s heyday. You can catch them again this week — they’ve got another gig with The Wanteds, The Dirty Blondes and My Kids Are Jerks at Burlington’s Second Floor on Wednesday, September 28. Now there’s a winning combination.

PULSE PROPHETS W. EKIS ONE’S COMPANY :: Although Portland, Oregon’s The Wanteds name suggests plurality, the “group” actually comprises a single member, the 35-year-old Tommy Harrington. He conceived the project after JIM PAYNE BAND W. SATCHEL

struggling with drugs and collaboration, both of which left him broke and alone. While his self-produced indie-pop


is a little rough around the edges, it’s full of melody and heart. A recent father, Harrington is the subject of a fish-

(Animalville Records, CD)

(Quartz Recordings, CD) In the right pair of hands, the acoustic guitar can produce resonant tones that impress with crispness and beauty. Green Mountain troubadour Spencer Lewis possesses such a pair of mitts. His latest release, Vermont Serenades, is an all-instrumental collection of robust musical passages, impeccably recorded, arranged and performed. Lewis is a highly prolific musician, whose label, Quartz Recordings, is responsible for a substantial number of neo-folk releases. Commissioned by Camilla Rockwell as the soundtrack to her film Stone Rising, the music on Vermont Serenades isn’t terribly weighty. In fact, it drifts by like a cool breeze. Although Rockwell asked for solo guitar only, not every track here features naked six-string. Lewis is also a capable violinist, and he uses the instrument’s mournful sustain to provide lovely accompaniment to his flatpicking. “Conversation With a Stone Wall” opens with a simple chordal arpeggio before being joined by broad violin lines that weave in and out of the arrangement like a Celtic knot. The track’s gentle beauty is buffered by an unassuming nimbleness; Lewis’ skill lies not just in virtuosity but in clarity. The brief “New Love (Reprise)” chimes along with sturdy conviction, its bright guitar lines rising to a voluminous peak before suddenly receding. The instantly hum-able “November” again demonstrates Lewis’ affinity for acoustic guitar and violin. With its rustic melodies, the track would make fine background music for an old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner. “Ariana’s Theme With Violins” finds the songwriter dashing through an uptempo strum session. Violin lines curl like wisps of smoke from a fireplace, while the cyclical guitar progression inspires wistful reminiscences of times past. Unfortunately, some of Vermont Serenades comes across as a tad too new-agey; the kind of pastoral panache heard on countless Windham Hill releases. “Vermont Serenade #2,” suffers from a certain degree of sameness, as does subsequent track “The Letter I Never Sent.” Although both cuts are expertly played, it’s tough to separate them from what’s come before. These repeating motifs are probably in keeping with the overall soundtrack aesthetic. Still, at more than 20 tracks, it can be too much of a good thing. Vermont Serenades works well as a whole, but as a collection of individual compositions it fails to make an impression. Lewis is a fine musician, but his creations are the sonic equivalent of handsomely rendered nature paintings. Regardless of his penchant for musical pleasantries, Lewis’ skillful picking has resulted in an album as picturesque as autumn in New England. modq-SBHS092805

One man’s mud season is another man’s inspiration — and that man is Raph Worrick. As the chief visionary for the Addison County quintet Dirtminers, Worrick pulls tales of love and death out of the muck that clumps to the sides of his boots. These earthy tales have been captured on the Dirtminers’ new EP, Meat and Electricity. Despite containing seven tracks, the disc clocks in at less than 20 minutes. That means things move faster on this album than they typically do in Addison County. Worrick and co. showcase some major diversity on this set, however. Rocking, foot-stomping honky-tonk numbers such as “The Day I Met You” and “Addison County Clay” impress with their immediacy. These two as well as “Doctor Bag” could peel the paint off the wall of your local drinking hole. While the music — particularly Wayne Reiss’ hammering piano style — works well, Worrick’s vocals seem to channel Meatloaf at the ’70s cock-rocker’s sweatiest moments. It’s distracting, sometimes to the point of derailing. In contrast, “Mississippi” and “Clever Hans” ooze with darkness and atmosphere that is only hinted at on other cuts. The weeping organ and plaintive acoustic strumming on “Clever Hans” provides a convincing backdrop for Worrick’s mournful paean to lost love. Driven by a nifty bass line, “Mississippi” schools the listener on the folly of running from misery. The track is punctuated by an echo-laden guitar riff that appears like red ink on his audio essay. The sexual overtones on “You Just Don’t Care” contrast with the gospel tunes it mimics musically. While this tension makes the song stand out, it unfortunately lacks a strong hook. “Death of a Barn Cat” is a mid-tempo folk number that sounds a bit like an outtake from Bob Dylan’s Under the Red Sky. EPs are generally made for one of two reasons: Bands sometimes use them as test balloons in advance of their debut albums to see how fans react; or they may use them to try out a variety of music that doesn’t jibe with their other work. It’s not clear which way Dirtminers are leaning, but my guess is the latter. Overall, Meat and Electricity works best when exploring the mellower mode. Here’s hoping their next release takes some of the pressure off. modq-pure092805

Small Wonders

O EXHIBIT “Small Pictures Exhibition,” the 8th annual members’ show. Bryan Memorial Gallery, Jeffersonville . Through November 20.

ARTWORK “Lunch Together” by Chris Ford

PHOTO Marc Awodey

ne nice thing about small artworks is that you can squeeze a lot of them into a room. The 8th annual “Small Pictures Exhibition” at the Bryan Memorial Gallery illustrates this by presenting nearly 250 mini — though not minor — works in one wing. With all the art at or under the size restriction of 16 by 20 inches, the show confirms the wisdom of the phrase “small is beautiful.” Like all exhibits at the Jeffersonville venue, this one is dominated by painting but includes other media. One of the strongest works is an 8-by-10-inch photograph by Andrea Powell, entitled “Black Mountain Farm Tractor.” Its colors are muted: silver and gray with a few red details on the ag implements. Powell may have tinted the photo by hand, but that isn’t stated. Either way, her varied values, offset by punctuating passages of a warmer hue, give the old tractor an eloquent presence. Printmaking is represented here by several pieces, executed in an array of techniques. Steve Fuller’s vertical composition “Sunflowers 2” is a 6-by4-inch woodblock print delicately tinted with watercolor. White lines of negative space separate each area of color, just as lines of lead separate pieces of stained glass. Fuller’s image

of a vase of flowers, a piece of fruit and a wine bottle is astutely described in complementary purples and yellows. The result is highly decorative. The 4-by-5-inch etching entitled “Salad” by Alice Eckles is more abstract and employs fewer, though richer, hues. She drew an active jumble of blacks, grays and whites from the point of view of looking downward into the bowl. A few strategically placed reds and orange — abstracted tomatoes and carrots — enliven the image. While all of the artworks in the “Small Pictures Exhibition” are small, a few are not actually pictures, but three-dimensional pieces. An untitled sleeping female nude by Renee Korst is crafted from white terra cotta and is expressive rather than wholly naturalistic. Joan Danforth’s ceramic vessels are inspired by Japanese forms, and their surface colors range from rusty reds to grays and blue-black. Danforth also presents a wall-mounted tile piece that is essentially a small triptych: a square tile in the center and vertical rectangles at each end. A black, hill-like shape rolls across all three sections, while a foggy rose hue appears along the upper edge.

Among the more than 200 paintings in the show are plenty of gems. Robert Waldo Brunelle, Jr.’s Hopperesque buildings and cityscapes are certainly his best works, as “Castle in the Sky” demonstrates. The adeptly painted 8-by-7-inch acrylic has nicely varied gray details within the trim of the foreground building and in a distant Victorian house, sited on a lush hill beneath a cerulean blue sky. Dorothy Martinez has provided several abstract landscapes. Her “Victory Bog” has the colors of a J. M. W. Turner and the brushwork — or is it all palette knife? — of a Corot. The 8-by-10-inch painting has a fiery scarlet foreground in the lower third of the image, with rolling cumulus clouds rushing through the sky. Martinez is an accomplished abstractionist, but reveals her landscapist roots in this show. The Bryan Memorial Gallery thrives on presenting accessible works by accomplished artists — generally members of the gallery and/or the Northern Vermont Artists Association. The NVAA is one of oldest arts organizations in the state, and its affiliation with the gallery is a winwin for both entities. The “Small Pictures Exhibition” shows why. m

Flightplan HH

J CABIN PRESSURE Foster takes on perhaps the greatest challenge of her career: getting an audience to swallow one of the most preposterous stories in motion-picture history.

odie Foster’s latest is like a journey aboard a jumbo jet that commences with a silky-smooth takeoff and visit from the beverage cart, but then takes a sudden turn for the disastrous, losing altitude — and entertainment value — at an alarming rate. Flightplan will probably leave you wishing you’d chosen a different destination. This is the first American film from the two-time Oscar winner in three years — she had a petite but très intriguing role in last year’s stellar French production A Very Long Engagement. Flightplan might not have qualified as a lame Tara Reid or Lindsay Lohan project, but it’s a bafflingly boneheaded bit of business in which to find an artist of Foster’s stature. When studios refuse to preview releases for critics, it’s usually — I mean always — because they already know the films are so bogus that the opening weekend box office would be compromised by bad reviews. That’s precisely the red-flag stunt Disney pulled with Flightplan. You’d think Hollywood executives would’ve figured out by now that it would be simpler and less conspicuous just to invite Roger Ebert and not inform him he’s the only reviewer getting to see the movie. In recent years the Pulitzer Prize winner has raved about countless titles that the vast majority of critics have savaged. And, sure enough, even though Flightplan was so flawed its own studio was holding its nose, once Ebert saw it, he gushed — and gave it three and a half (out of four) stars. That’s akin to President Bush awarding former FEMA head Michael Brown a Congressional Medal of Honor for his performance in New Orleans. To be fair, the premise of Flightplan is tantalizing, if a tad tasteless. I’m not sure the time has come, or ever will, to start using the events of 9/11 as button-pushing touchstones in Bgrade thrillers. But that’s what this movie does. Neither do I wish to suggest that Robert Schwentke is insensitive to the issue, or that he was handpicked because he’s German and therefore won’t have to take the heat if the whole thing leaves a bad taste in moviegoers’ mouths. Well, OK, maybe I do. Foster plays a Munich-based jet-propulsion engineer whose husband has recently fallen to his death from the roof of their home. She’s making the transatlantic trip back to the States

with his casket in the cargo hold and their little girl (Marlene Lawston) in the window seat beside her. For some reason, movies in which mothers are suspected of imagining the existence of their children have become fashionable (The Forgotten, for example) and Flightplan is the latest addition to the genre. Foster takes a nap and, when she awakes, her daughter’s seat is empty except for her teddy bear. This is the part that’s like a smooth takeoff. After all, what parent who’s ever lost sight of a child at a theme park or shopping center can’t relate to the gut-wrenching fear that grips and grows in Foster’s character? And what a promising twist that the setting for the mystery is an airtight tube hurtling through the night sky at 40,000 feet! Even the most sophisticated modern aircraft isn’t equipped with an Amber Alert system. But here’s where things start to nosedive. The plane’s captain and crew begin to question whether the girl was ever really on board, since her name isn’t on the passenger manifest and no one in the craft can recall seeing her. When they learn that Foster was recently widowed, they make a tacit assumption that she’s suffering from severe trauma. When it turns out that Foster has lost the boarding pass her daughter was issued, and a call from Munich reveals the girl was killed along with her father, the audience, too, has every reason to believe the character is delusional. Buckle your seatbelts. We’re going down fast from here. Movie-critic law prevents me from getting specific, but I can tell you that the final 45 minutes of Flightplan are as shameless and preposterous a series of plot developments as I’ve seen in more than two decades of reviewing. The script has Foster jumping to the conclusion that a party of Arab men must have kidnapped her daughter as part of some nefarious, highaltitude agenda. Am I the only one who finds this in questionable taste? The screenplay by Peter A. Dowling and Billy Ray doesn’t so much insult the moviegoer’s intelligence as assume he or she has none. There’s no excuse for a motion picture this tacky, slipshod and ultimately just plain silly. It’s a waste of an irresistible premise, a waste of tremendous talent, and a waste of time for everyone who goes along for the ride. m

SHORTS AN UNFINISHED LIFEHH Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman and Jennifer Lopez star in this Western with a heart, about a grieving father who rustles up new hope when the granddaughter he never knew he had comes to stay. (100 min, PG-13) BROKEN FLOWERSHHH Director Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law) brings this tale of a man who revisits former girlfriends in search of a 19-year-old son he may have fathered unknowingly. Starring Bill Murray, Sharon Stone, Jessica Lange, Jeffrey Wright and Frances Conroy. (105 min, R) CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORYHHH1/2 Johnny Depp and Tim Burton reteam to reinterpret the beloved Roald Dahl classic about an eccentric chocolatier and the little boy who lives in the shadow of his fantastic factory. With Helena Bonham Carter and David Kelly. (106 min, PG) CRY WOLFHH1/2 High school students decide to terrify their classmates by spreading online rumors about a fabricated killer. Kids today.

Reel Blues “Allen’s house was wiped out by Katrina,” Sidney says during a telephone conversation from California. Murphy fled ahead of the storm and doesn’t yet know the condition of his home. The place Sidney used to rent is three blocks from the infamous 17th Street Canal, a sort of Ground Zero in the flood. The doc — narrated by Art Neville — offers interviews with notables who discuss the art form, as well as footage of streets, bars and recording studios in the Big Easy’s pre-disaster days. It’s a town that has generated a plethora of talent: Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Mahalia Jackson, Dr. John and Harry Connick, Jr., to name a few. Two other Vermonters were on Sidney’s crew: John Lord of Groton did the concert lighting, and Chris Bailey of Burlington worked as first assistant director of the film, which was shot with 16 high-definition digital video cameras. Sidney and Murphy dreamed up the idea for Make It Funky! when they observed that the world was entranced by Louisiana’s popular Cajun and zydeco cultures. They wanted to present a comprehensive history of the region’s other musical traditions. “We felt no one had really zeroed in on r&b,” recalls Sidney, now 52. “We said, ‘Let’s narrow that vision down a bit to what New Orleans is all about.’ My role was to put together

all the technical aspects, rehearsals and musicians.” With a budget he estimates at close to $3 million, Sidney says Murphy even took out a second mortgage. Luckily, Sony Pictures provided some funding thanks to a personal connection with the company. Although the DVD comes out this week, a more extensive theatrical run is still a possibility. During the 1980s Sidney went from doing audio and stage management at Hunt’s, the long-defunct Burlington club, to going on the road with Leon Redbone, John Hiatt and Richard Thompson. After he accompanied those acts to the Jazz and Heritage Festival as a guest engineer in 1987, the event itself became a yearly gig for him. “Later, I oversaw all the TV and radio production from the fest,” says Sidney, who is currently managing the career of singer Rickie Lee Jones. “I’ve done so many things at the Superdome. I’ve done videos with

Aaron Neville. I just immersed myself in New Orleans r&b.” At the moment, he’s trying to organize an October 27 benefit in Los Angeles that might help le bon temps rouler again some day. Weekend midnight shows at the Roxy were so successful last spring that Merrill Jarvis III, who manages his family’s downtown Burlington venue, is bringing them back every Friday and Saturday night this fall. But in addition to another round of “Kung Fu Classics,” he’ll initiate two new programs in adjacent screening rooms from October 14 through November 12: “Horror-Sleaze” — with titles such as Devil Fetus — and “Cult Indies.” “For that category, I’m hoping to get things like the director’s cut of Brazil,” Jarvis says, referring to the nightmarish 1985 comedy by Terry Gilliam. Great choice, but it ain’t no Devil Fetus. m

This week, as always, the things Fannie likes (shown in CAPITAL letters) all follow a secret rule. Can you figure out what it is? NOTE: Fickle Fannie likes words. But each week she likes something different about them — how they’re spelled, how they sound, how they look, what they mean, or what’s inside them.

After Sideways, everyone ran out to buy PINOT NOIR. The ice cream flavor “ESCAR-GO-GO” didn’t go over well. SEWING is to SOWING as needles are to ploughs. BIGELOW TEAS taste fresher because of the sealed packets. Wayne called his plush home the VEGAS FONTAINEBLEAU. Chicken coops have a foul odor and a FOWL ODOR. Why do some people find MOBILE PHONES so fascinating? What do ARIZONA AND MANITOBA have in common? “BOB DOLE is firmly in favor of Viagra,” said Bob Dole. BRIGITTE BARDOT traded fluids with the LONE RANGER. E me with your Qs or comments ( Difficulty rating for this puzzle: HARD AS COAL. If you’re stuck, see the HINT on this page. If you cave, see the ANSWER on page 63A. So much for Fickle Fannie’s tastes this week. Next week she’ll have a whole new set of likes and dislikes.



aissez le bon temps rouler? The good times certainly rolled for Don Sidney before Katrina hit. Beginning in 1988, the Burlington resident spent six years as production director of the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. As such, he would always relocate there from January through the end of May. And the guitarist — once with Burlington bands such as Bongo Moon — is now associate producer of a documentary about the Crescent City’s vibrant rhythm and blues scene. Make It Funky! was already scheduled to premiere in New York and Los Angeles in early September, but the Gulf Coast catastrophe gave the limited release unforeseen poignancy. “The timing was ironic and bittersweet,” says Sidney, who hopes to screen the 109-minute film at the Roxy in the near future to benefit hurricane victims. Directed by New Orleans native Michael Murphy, Make It Funky! centers on an epic April 2004 concert at the Saenger Theater on Rampart Street that reportedly had the audience dancing in the aisles. The show features the likes of Irma Thomas, the Neville Brothers, Lloyd Price, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards. That lineup also includes legendary songwriterarranger Allen Toussaint (think “Mother-in-Law” and “Southern Nights”), with whom Sidney performed in 1989 and 1990.

At the forefront of jazz, everything old is new again. Hip-hop and improv instrumentals combine in ways that sounds like sampling, and some of the most high-powered energy comes from free-form collisions with other musical spheres. Case in point? The Bad Plus dress like the Beastie Boys, play like Miles Davis, and share control of the group. Consummate jazz musicians all, bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer David King shy away from straight standards, covering the Pixies and Black Sabbath, with some Stravinsky thrown in for good measure. Fresh from a full week at New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village Vanguard, the Midwestern rocket-men pull through to promote their new, eyebrowraising CD. Suspicious Activity? You betcha.

scene@HARVEY WASSERMAN FIREHOUSE GALLERY, BURLINGTON, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 7:30–9 P.M. Forty people waited for 40 minutes in the Lorraine B. Good Room of the Firehouse Gallery for Harvey Wasserman, nationally renowned author, no-nukes activist and Lefty rabble-rouser. We nibbled butter cookies, sipped coffee, and perused the activist shwag on sale by the door. The slogans — “When Machines Count, Votes Don’t” and “Diebold Voting Systems: Keeping America Safe From Democracy” — presaged the evening’s topic: how the GOP allegedly rigged the last two presidential elections. Gary Beckwith, Burlington’s “Solar Bus Guy,” killed some time talking to the group until 8:10, when Wasserman finally showed, still schlepping his luggage from the airport. Dressed in a wrinkled blue shirt, jeans and a John Deere cap, Wasserman didn’t seem at all wearied by his travels. He launched into an energetic, though dispiriting account of the electoral chicanery that occurred in his home state of Ohio in November, 2004. Wasserman’s remarks — delivered without notes and barely a pause — covered material included in his latest book, How the GOP Stole America’s 2004 Election and Is Rigging 2008. “It’s beyond infuriating,” Wasserman said. “If you have a heart condition, you probably shouldn’t read it.” Gray pony-tailed heads shook in disbelief or pshawed audibly at Wasserman’s laundry list of electoral abuses. Among them: Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell’s 11th-hour mandate that all voter-registration forms be printed on 80-pound paper (think wedding invitations). Also, his letter to 35,000 Ohioans telling them that, as exfelons, they were prohibited from voting — untrue under Ohio law, plus many weren’t felons.) Wasserman, in Burlington for an alternative energy conference the following day, could have talked until midnight and the crowd probably would have stuck around. But by 10, my head throbbed, not just from contemplating this punishing assault on democracy, but also the Democrats’ lame response to it. Afterwards, as we filed onto Church Street, a man shook his head and muttered, “What bullshit!” His remarks weren’t directed at Wasserman, but John Kerry. KEN PICARD

The game the Japanese call go is the world’s oldest board game of skill. How old? The warlike pastime originated in China, where it’s called weiqi. Players there were surrounding each other’s monochrome pieces on a grid more than 2500 years ago. Taking an opponent prisoner may seem simple in black and white, but, as in chess, there are multiple methods of psyching out the opponent across the board. In honor of an ongoing exhibit playing up Asian games in the newly opened Robert F. Reiff Gallery at Middlebury’s Museum of Art, former women’s world champion Feng Yun goes into action to take on four challengers — simultaneously.

GO COMPETITION Thursday, September 29, The Grille, McCullough Student Center, Middlebury College, 7:30 p.m. Free. Info, 443-6433.

Mozart never completed his last composition. The Austrian virtuoso died in Vienna at the age of 35, leaving the Requiem Mass in D Major unfinished. A choral offering to the dead, the work spans eight sections â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but Mozart completed only two, and just sketched phrases for the other segments. His assistant, Franz Xaver SĂźssmayr, finished the rest so that Mozartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow could collect the commission for the work. Regardless of who filled in the blanks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a powerful piece. The Mad River Chorale and Barre Choraleers combine their 70 voices and add a 25-piece orchestra, performing the full Requiem at two venues.

When shrimp-boat captain Diane Wilson learned that chemical dumping had made her Texas Gulf Coast county the most polluted place in the country, she took it personally. In the 16 years since, the fourth-generation fisherwoman and mother of five has become a chutzpahfilled super-heroine of environmentalism. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even had a comic book written about her. But Wilson insists sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody particular,â&#x20AC;? and that any citizen can stand up for what he or she loves. At a public lecture inaugurating the Gailer Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new youth-engagement program, the salt-of-the-earth hell-raiser introduces An Unreasonable Woman, accounting her commitments to antiwar and environmental causes.

DEMOCRACY IN ACTION Sunday, October 2, Great Room, The Gailer School, Shelburne, 4 p.m. $15. Info, 985-1276.

Last but not least is a breezy, cream-colored fortress of glass and air, designed by influential modern architect Peter Eisenman. Carefully conserved by its current owners, the Eisenman house has been designated by the Preservation Trust of Vermont as the state’s “most important building from the 1960s.”

free will astrology



ARIES (March 21-April 19): In Madison magazine, William Stadiem described Aries actress Robin Wright Penn as “the most beautiful surgically unenhanced woman on screen.” I nominate her to be your role model. May she inspire you to reject the pressure to be anything other than exactly who you are. May her example give you the courage to ignore standards of success that don’t originate in your own heart.

the Supreme Wow to help you (and every other Cancerian who’s interested) to master the art of neither feeling too much nor too little but just the right amount and just the right kind. It’s portentous that you asked now: The astrological omens suggest it’s a perfect moment to make great progress toward this goal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Donald Hall wrote a

that you will soon hook up with the “wrong” helpers. They will nudge you down an unexpected path that results in you getting tests you didn’t even know you needed. I also suspect that without much assistance from anyone, you will make one of your best “mistakes” of 2005. Congratulations in advance, Taurus, for being receptive to the blessings in disguise.

poem in which two men are talking. One says, “I was a fool three years ago.” The other replies, “One is always a fool three years ago.” I bring this to your attention, Leo, because it’s a perfect moment to take a good long look at the ignorance and naiveté that clung to you in the latter half of 2002. The time is also ripe to make sure that you have corrected your erroneous ideas and cleaned up the karma that resulted from them. To do so will bring you uncanny satisfaction.



TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I predict

(May 21-June 20): A big, beautiful window of opportunity will open for you this week. The only question is: Will you see it? The odd fact of the matter is that it might show up behind you while your gaze is fixed on a pretty bauble. Now study these words from Carlos Castaneda: “All of us, whether or not we are warriors, have a cubic centimeter of chance that pops out from time to time. The difference between an average person and a warrior is awareness of this, and one of the tasks is to be alert, deliberately waiting, so that when the cubic centimeter pops out he or she has the necessary speed and prowess to pick it up.”


(June 21-July 22): “Dear Prayer Warriors: I desperately need assistance in calming my emotional body. It’s clear to me that I either overreact or underreact to many situations, particularly those that surprise me. So please beg the Creator to send me a surge of divine steadiness, because I can’t afford to do this anymore. It makes me ill. It makes my family crazy. It throws my values into a tailspin. — Born under the Sign of the Crabby Crab.” Dear Crabby Crab: The Prayer Warriors will beseech

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This isn’t a good week to become pen pals with criminals, pray to moody angels, or flirt with bipolar hotties. On the other hand, it is a favorable time to listen with finely tuned curiosity to people of impeccable integrity who have recently become aware of your value. I also suggest that you offer invitations to movers and shakers who are going through emotional transitions. Be daring and gracious in an effort to hook up with high-quality adventurers.


(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It will be a good week to Google yourself, ask people pointblank to tell you how much they need you, and brag about yourself with extravagant gusto. In fact, Libra, you now have cosmic license to celebrate your glories in a hundred ways. Why not buy yourself special gifts, gaze into the mirror longer than usual, and yes, even make love with yourself? (If your religious beliefs regard the latter as a sin, simply touch yourself in unsinful ways.)

BY ROB BREZSNY You can call Rob Brezsny, day or night, for your expanded weekly horoscope 1-900-950-7700. $1.99 per minute. 18 and over. Touchtone phone.


(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Most people hate to feel lost. It can be scary not to know where you are, to wander aimlessly with no sense of direction. But I’d like to propose that in a few rare situations, being lost is a good thing. Such is the case right now, Scorpio. You don’t know your destination, you’ve lost your map, and you’re not even sure where you came from — all of which sets you up perfectly to stumble upon a rich discovery you would have never found otherwise. I suggest that you relax completely into the unmoored, floating feeling. The paradoxical truth is that the best strategy for finding your way out of the fog is to enjoy the fog.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Dear Rob: I need extra special mojo. It’s a long story why, but suffice it to say that many threads are very close to getting woven together in a most beautiful way, and I want to make sure it all comes to pass. If you write me a great horoscope this week, I’ll give you my piece of the Burning Bush from the monastery of St. Catherine of Siena on Mt. Sinai. I’ll let you shake the hand that Mother Teresa touched when she promised to pray for me. I’ll bake you a chocolate cake like the one that when I made it for physicist David Bohm, he said it was not illusory (the highest of compliments, coming from him). Sagittarius on the Brink.” Dear On the Brink: I don’t accept bribes, though your extraordinary offer tempts me. Luckily, it’s a moot point, because your tribe’s cosmic omens are positively sublime right now—even more so if you cultivate an aptitude for ingenious generosity, which you seem to be doing.


(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Baseball games periodically erupt into faux brawls. One team takes offense at an insult from the opposition, tempers flare, and soon all the players race to the center of the field for a screaming and shoving match. It’s rare that anyone is actually hurt; all the testosterone and adrenaline get safely expressed in a way that entertains the fans, and some players are so inspired by the

melee that they ratchet up their performances a notch. It might be time for your personal equivalent of one of these outbursts, Capricorn. You and your cohorts may need a catharsis to release the backlog of creative energy that has been a bit blocked.


(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Musician Michael Franti is my favorite activist. He’s a consummate protestor, touting joy and beauty as much as he rails against injustice. When he sings “Love is gonna set me free” on his album Stay Human, he’s talking about giving love as much as getting it. And he’s not just referring to romantic love, but love in all of its flavors and expressions. I bring him to your attention, Aquarius, because he has a habit I recommend to you this week: He goes barefoot a lot — certainly more than any other 6’6” rock star in history; I’ve never seen him perform with shoes on. My theory is that it reminds him to stay down to earth and well-grounded as he fights for his heady ideals. Make Franti your role model in the coming week. Go barefoot, dole out huge amounts of love, combat injustice artfully, and spread delight with relaxed assertiveness.


(Feb. 19-March 20): A Pisces woman I know has heard harassing voices in her head for years. They’ve often urged her to commit suicide or commit other heinous acts. Three weeks ago, they mysteriously stopped, and have left her alone ever since. Meanwhile, another Pisces friend recently received a letter from an old lover who unconditionally forgave her for hurting him while they were together. A third acquaintance, also born under the sign of the Fishes, had a lucid dream in which she buried the dress she was wearing during the saddest moment of her life. Subsequently she has felt an exhilarating release from the weight of the past. I see these three events as examples of a theme you too are enjoying: a burst of liberation from a demon that has plagued you for eons.

chiropractic When does a person need chiropractic treatment? Some people choose chiropractic to alleviate pain in the back, neck, knee, etc.; for headaches, numbness or tingling, sports or auto injuries (whiplash), carpal tunnel or tendonitis. Others choose chiropractic to maintain flexibility or improve their athletic performance, or just as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Health tip:

If you injure yourself and are not sure what to do about it, use ice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 20 minutes per hour, several times per day for the first day or two. Also, gentle movement without impact is great for all muscles and joints, even those that are sore.

the love counselor Dear Lola, I am a healthy female in my thirties. I have been having sex for at least 15 years, during which time I have reached orgasm from sex one time. I have been open with my mates (male), and they have tried their best. Oral sex has had no success, either. I enjoy foreplay and do get aroused, but I never have an orgasm. I also usually end up faking it after a while, but it is growing old. Is there a physical reason for this? I can climax through masturbation. I have been with my current boyfriend for the past year and a half and he doesn’t know that I have this problem. Any advice? Faking it in Ferrisburgh Dear Faking, Many women find the old in-and-out less than orgasmic unless it’s augmented by other stimulation. Can you strike a position with your partner that pushes your buttons better, or show him some special strokes? Is he a quick-change artist who shifts approach just as you get going? Are you self-conscious about letting go in front of him, or censoring your fantasies? Since masturbation works when you’re alone, why not work it into your together time? Do yourself for a few times, then take him in hand and demonstrate what rubs you the right way. Love, Lola
