But  that  goal  cannot  be  met  unless  the  Ver-­ JHQQHVOLEUDU\LVRQVROLGÂżQDQFLDOJURXQG At  their  town  meetings  last  month,  Waltham   DQG3DQWRQUHDIÂżUPHGWKHLUSHUFDSLWD support  for  the  library,  while  for  the  second   straight   year   Ferrisburgh   residents   strongly   over-­rode   their   selectboard   and   increased   their  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  support  to  that  same  level.   In  Addison,   residents   voted,   181-­131,   to   LQFUHDVH WKDW WRZQÂśV EDFNLQJ WR  EULQJLQJ$GGLVRQXSWRWKHVDPHSHU capita  support.   Vergennes  aldermen  a  year  ago  agreed  to   LQFOXGH  LQ WKH FLW\ EXGJHW IRU WKH Bixby,  an  amount  that  including  an  estimat-­ HG  IRU SURSHUW\ PDLQWHQDQFH EULQJV the  city  up  to  that  same  level.   &ROOHFWLYHO\WKHÂżYHFRPPXQLWLHVÂśDQQXDO %L[E\VXSSRUWWRSVIRUWKHÂżUVWWLPH Spencer  said  she  and  the  board  are  grate-­ ful  for  the  backing,  although  it  is  not  quite   enough   to   prevent   the   Bixby   board   from   having  to  dip  into  its  shrinking  endowment   to   make   ends   meet   (the   board   estimated   in    DQ DPRXQW FORVHU WR  RU  SHU capita  would  be  needed).  

Still,  it  is  enough  to  create  breathing  room.   Âł,WÂśV GHÂżQLWHO\ VWDELOL]HG XV 7R KDYH WKDW chunk  of  change  there  is  incredibly  important,   and  I  think  there  is  a  psychological  part  that   goes  along  with  it,  too,â&#x20AC;?  Spencer  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;You   know  youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  got  the  support.  Some  of  what   youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  doing  people  must  feel  good  about.â&#x20AC;?

The   reconsideration   vote   was   petitioned   by  resident  Howard  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skipâ&#x20AC;?  Brush,  who  op-­

posed  the  project  (Article  6)  that  voters  ap-­ proved  on  Town  Meeting  Day  by  a  915-­798   tally.  Brush  and  several  helpers  gathered  280   signatures  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  well  over  the  230  required  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   to  force  a  reconsideration  of  Article  6.   That   article   calls   for   a   new   municipal   building  to  be  built  at  77  Main  St.  and  a  new   recreation   center   to   be   erected   off   Creek   Road.  Middlebury  College  has  agreed  to  un-­ derwrite  $4.5  million  of  the  $6.5  million  in  

construction   costs   in   exchange   for   the   cur-­ rent   municipal   building/gym   property   at   94   Main  St.  and  another  town-­owned  parcel  at   6  Cross  St.  The  college  would  also  pay  up  to   $1  million  to  move  its  Osborne  House  from   77  Main  St.  to  6  Cross  St.  and  to  clear  the  94   Main  St.  site  for  use  as  a  park.

he  and  his  colleagues  believe  May  13  would   catch   voters   before   graduations   and   summer   vacations  and  still  provide  ample  time  for  the   public   to   become   informed   about   the   issue.   Carpenter   said   some   citizens   at   Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   board  meeting  had  hoped  for  a  later  vote  date,   but   ultimately   acknowledged   the   soundness   of  May  13  after  studying  the  calendar.

By  JOHN  FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Two-­and-­a-­ half-­year-­old   Charlotte   LaFayette   McConnell  is  making  stellar  prog-­ ress   in   her   recovery   from   injuries   sustained   after   being   struck   by   an   SUV   on   Weybridge   Street   on   April   1,   and   a   fundraising   effort   launched  on  her  behalf  had  yielded   more   than   $13,000   as   the   Addi-­ son  Independent  went  to  press  on   Wednesday. Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   grandmother   Joyce   Duclos  of  Middlebury  and  her  aunt   Kasey   Lafayette  Trujillo   of   Colo-­ rado   reported   that   the   young   girl   suffered   a   traumatic   brain   injury   after  being  hit  by  a  vehicle  driven   by   Zachary   Bruchmiller,   22,   of   San   Antonio,   Texas.   Authorities   reported   that   Charlotte   had   been   standing   alongside   her   mother   on   Weybridge  Street  opposite  the  Ot-­ ter   Creek   Child   Center   when   she   ran  into  the  street  and  was  struck.   Charlotte  is  an  enrollee  at  the  Otter   Creek  Child  Center  and  her  mom,   Karly   LaFayette   McConnell,   is   a   teacher  there. Charlotte   was   airlifted   to   Dart-­ mouth-­Hitchcock   Medical   Center   in   Lebanon,   N.H.,   following   the   accident.  She  continues  to  receive   care   there.   While   she   miracu-­ lously  sustained  no  broken  bones,   she   will   have   to   undergo   two   or   three   moths   of   intensive   physical   therapy,  according  to  her  aunt  and   grandmother. The   family   is   incurring   con-­ siderable   expenses   as   a   result   of   the   accident   and   a   website   set   up   for   Charlotte   has   to   date   raised   $13,145.  Anyone   wanting   to   con-­ tribute  can  do  so  by  logging  on  to   www.gofundme.com/80gje8.

Letters to the Editor Single-­board  option  moves  system  into  modern  era Though  I  am  a  school  board  mem-­ ber,  the  views  expressed  here  are  my   own. A  recent  Independent  headline,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;School  consolidation:  cost  vs.   EHQHÂżW´LVZURQJWZLFH)LUVW+ would  not  consolidate  schools.  Only   school  boards  could  do  that.  The  bill   would  consolidate  school  boards.   Second,  there  are  opportunities  under   a  single-­board  system  to  reduce  cost   andEHQHÂżWVWXGHQWV Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  look  at  some  facts. First,  supervisory  unions  are  al-­ UHDG\ODUJHO\XQLÂżHG.  A  single  super-­ intendent  oversees  all  the  schools.  A   single  supervisory  union  board  hires   and  evaluates  the  superintendent,   DSSURYHVWKHFHQWUDORIÂżFHEXGJHW and  takes  responsibility  for  curricu-­ lum  in  all  schools.  A  single  council   negotiates  labor  contracts.  A  single   union  district  board  governs  the  7-­12   schools.  It  is  only  the  elementary   school  boards  that  are  not  part  of  this   XQLÂżHGV\VWHPDQGWKDWIUDJPHQWD-­ tion  is  what  the  proposed  legislation   addresses.   Town  meeting  is  only  part  of   citizen  input.  In  a  supervisory  union,   citizens  who  wish  to  keep  tabs  on  

student  opportunity  and  budgets  now   need  to  attend  three  different  board   meetings:  their  elementary  board,   their  secondary  board,  and  their   supervisory  union  board.  All  three   hold  annual  budget  hearings,  and  the   elementary  and  secondary  boards  put   their  budgets  up  for  citizen  vote.  (Su-­ pervisory  union  budgets  are  currently   not  voted  on  by  citizens.)  Creating   single-­board  governance  would   mean  only  one  board  for  citizens  to   focus  on,  and  would  mean  a  single   budget  to  vote  on  that  would  include   all  spending. That  single  budget  brings  some   advantages.  The  board  would  have   options  in  the  distribution  of  funds   among  its  schools.  Temporary  spikes   in  spending  at  particular  schools   could  be  accommodated  by  shifting   funds,  thus  avoiding  state-­imposed   penalties.  This  means  more  control   would  move  from  the  state  to  the   XQLÂżHGERDUG The  board  would  have  a  birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   eye  view  of  its  elementary  students,   DQGFRXOGFRQÂżJXUHEXLOGLQJVLQD rational  manner,  making  them  large   enough  to  offer  increased  opportuni-­ ties  for  students,  and  large  enough  to

The  Addison  County  River   Watch  Collaborative  (ACRWC)   is  a  thrilling  example  of  local   people  learning  about,  systemati-­ cally  monitoring,  and  conserving  a   commonly-­held  local  resource  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Ă&#x20AC;RZLQJZDWHU Local  forest-­based  wood  cer-­ tainly  is  a  local  forest  good.  Hope-­ fully  it  will  remain  so  long  into   the  future.  Wood  is  the  foundation   of  a  Vermont  forest-­based  manu-­ facturing  sector  that  contributes   over  $1.5  billion  annually  to  the   Vermont  economy.  Customers   from  the  world  over  buy  our  light-­ colored,  diffuse-­porous,  wood   products  that  grow  well  in  our   rich,  well-­watered  forests. The  Vermont  forest-­based   economy  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  including  both  forest-­ based  manufacturing  and  forest-­ based  recreation  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  adds  over  $3.5   billion  to  our  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  economy   annually.  Of  that,  over  $1.9  billion   (55  percent)  of  those  revenues  are   now  generated  by  forest-­based   recreation. People  come  to  Vermont  to   ÂżVKVZLPND\DNDQGRWKHUZLVH recreate  in  our  lakes,  rivers  and   streams.  It  is  becoming  increas-­ ingly  clear  that  clean,  cold,  highly   oxygenated  water  is  an  essential   forest  ecosystem  service  and  forest   product.  In  fact,  it  may  well  be   Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  premier  forest  product.   There  are  many  reasons  for  this. High-­quality,  oxygen-­rich,   Ă&#x20AC;RZLQJZDWHUVIURP9HUPRQWÂśV forested  headwaters  keep  our   lowlands  well-­watered.  Bristol  and   many  other  communities  tap  into   these  high  quality  forest-­based   water  sources  for  their  municipal   water  supplies. In  addition  to  providing  superb   water  supplies  and  recreation   opportunities,  healthy  headwater   streams  provide  excellent  habitat   for  the  macro-­invertebrate  popula-­ tions,  which  are  essential  for  our

MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Rhoda   Rebee   Brandes,   upon   learning   that   the   end   was   near,   said   she   couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   imag-­ ine   a   better   way   to   go   than   to   be   at   home   in   Middlebury,   in   bed   watch-­ ing  baseball.  She  died  just  that  way,   on  March  31,  the  opening  day  of  the   2014  baseball  season. To   say   Rhoda   was   an   extremely   private   person   would   be   an   under-­ statement.  It  is  impossible  to  chron-­ icle  her  life.  There  are  only  bits  and   pieces   to   patch   together   into   some   kind   of   incomplete   mosaic.   This   much  is  known: Rhoda   was   raised   in   Brooklyn,   New  York.  She  attended  PS  197  and   James   Madison   H.S.   She   received   a   Bachelor   of   Arts   degree   from   Barnard  College  in  1956,  graduating   cum  laude  with  honors  in  English. Rhoda  was  a  writer.  She  supported   her   vocation   with   a   variety   of   jobs.   These   included   working   at   the   Manhattan   School   of   Music,   teach-­ ing  English  in  both  Los  Angeles  and   Switzerland,   editorially   assisting   writer  Ved  Mehta  at  the  New  Yorker,   editing  books  and  magazines  articles   in  the  States,  London  and  France,  as   well  as  taking  on  clerical,  sales,  wait-­ ressing  and  janitorial  jobs. During   the   â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s,   while   living   in   London,   Rhoda   had   some   success   as  a  writer.  The  Collins  Crime  Club   SXEOLVKHG ÂżYH VXVSHQVH QRYHOV under   her   pen   name   Diana   Ramsay.   Most  of  the  titles  were  subsequently   published   in   Germany,   France   and  

the  U.S.  as  well. Returning   to   the   States   in   1979,   she  lived  with  friends  in  New  Jersey   until   moving   to   Middlebury   in   the   early  1980s.  How  she  came  to  choose   Middlebury  is  unknown.  During  her   years   here,   she   supplemented   her   income  by  knitting,  at  which  she  was   very  accomplished. In   2003   her   book   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Descent   into   the  Darkâ&#x20AC;?  was  unexpectedly  sold  as   the   basis   for   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noiseâ&#x20AC;?   starring   Ally   Sheedy,   an   award-­winning   indepen-­ GHQW ÂżOP UHOHDVHG LQ  7KRXJK the   book   was   sold   for   a   modest   amount,   it   was   enough   to   allow   her   to   live   comfortably   to   the   end.  And   she  noted,  perhaps  with  a  little  irony,   that  she  and  her  money  were  running   out  together. Rhoda   was   a   lifelong,   dedicated   Mets   and   Red   Sox   fan   but   would   watch  any  baseball  game  in  a  pinch.   It  was  only  during  the  baseball  season   that   she   bought   TV   reception   and   then  only  watched  the  baseball  pack-­ age.  She  also  had  a  deep  appreciation   for   classical   music,   dance,   modern   literature,  fashion  and  leather  goods.   She   had   an   encyclopedic   memory   of   the   players,   writers,   musicians,   designers,   brands.   And   while   she   might   not   have   always   been   able   to   afford  quality,  she  knew  it  when  she   saw  it. Upon   learning   of   Rhodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   death,   her   agent   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   have   never   come   across   someone   who   was   so   immensely  kind,  gracious  and  deeply  

grateful.â&#x20AC;?   True,   Rhoda   was   highly   opinionated  and  did  not  mince  words;Íž   she  was  also  caring  and  generous. Rhoda  never  learned  to  drive.  She   walked.   She   walked   through   down-­ town   Middlebury   daily.   She   will   be   missed  at  her  regular  stops  along  the   way:  The  Co-­Op,  Neat  Repeats,  The   Round  Robin,  Ilsley  Library  and  Dan   Freemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Leatherworks.   Though   predeceased   by   her   parents   with   no   known   living   relatives,   she   leaves   behind  a  large  family  of  friends. Rhoda   had   not   been   feeling   well   for  a  long  time.  Many  friends  wanted   her  to  see  their  doctor.  Rhoda  refused,   insisting  that  she  had  some  digestion   problems   and   a   bad   cold.   She   was   diagnosed   as   having   cancer   just   8   days   before   passing   away.   True   to   her  nature,  she  immediately  arranged   to   be   cremated   without   a   viewing.   Friends   are   planning   to   hold   some   memorial  service  for  her  in  June  and   perhaps   scattering   her   ashes.   There   ZLOOEHQRWLÂżFDWLRQ A   special   thanks   goes   to  Addison   County   Home   Health   and   Hospice.   They   made   it   possible   for   Rhoda   to   stay   at   home   in   relative   comfort   while   slipping   away.   True,   the   Red   Sox  lost  their  opening  game  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;-­  that   was   a   let-­down.   And   her   friends   know   she   would   have   liked   to   have   seen  the  rest  of  the  season. $QG ÂżQDOO\ ² WKH DQVZHU WR WKH question  everyone  wanted  the  answer   to:  Rhoda  would  have  celebrated  her   WKELUWKGD\WKLVFRPLQJ-XQH¸

Given  a  choice,  voters  might  well   have  preferred  the  Brush  plan  to  the   selectboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,  since  it  avoids  what   many  consider  serious  drawbacks   to  the  board  plan.  But  what  Skipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   proposal  really  shows  is  that  the   selectboard  plan  is  far  from  the  only   possibility.  If  we  revoke  the  bond  

vote,  interested  citizens,  who  had   LQVXI¿FLHQWRSSRUWXQLW\IRUSXEOLF discussion  and  input  before  town   meeting,  can  compare  these  ideas  and   suggest  many  different,  potentially   better  ones.  If  we  take  the  time  and   care,  we  can  formulate  a  town  vision   consistent  with  a  comprehensive   recreation  program,  preservation  of   our  downtown  as  a  historic  district   DQGSULRULW\IRUHQHUJ\HI¿FLHQF\,WœV a  truly  exciting  prospect. Though  the  bond  proposal  received  

a  majority  vote,  the  47  percent  oppo-­ sition  shows,  as  Alpine  Bingham   observed,  that  â&#x20AC;&#x153;there  is  no  consensusâ&#x20AC;?   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  certainly  not  the  strong  consensus   we  need  before  radically  restructuring   the  town  with  effects  that  will  last  for   many  decades.  Despite  understand-­ able  reluctance  to  reopen  a  controver-­ sial  issue,  letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  say  â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;?  to  the  bond   and  â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;?  to  a  full  exploration  of  the   best  options  for  Middleburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  future.   Judy  Olinick Middlebury

I  want  to  see  a  means  by  which   Vermont  farmers  and  food  produc-­ ers  can  distinguish  themselves  and   their  products  in  this  issue  without  

being  forced  to  either  certify  their   operations  as  organic  or  be  lumped   together  as  patrons  of  the  biotech   industry.   Currently  the  landscape  is  totally   bipartisan:  processed  foodstuffs   DUHHLWKHUFHUWLÂżHGRUJDQLFRUWKH\ almost  certainly  contain  GMOs,   and  there  is  no  gray  area.  That  kind   of  black-­and-­white  situation  may   be  useful  for  political  extremists,   but  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  healthy  for  a  thriving   consumer  landscape. Food  labeling  laws  are  what  give   us  the  laundry  list  of  bizarre  ingre-­ dients  on  the  back  of  every  package   of  processed  food,  all  of  which  

KDYHEHHQRIÂżFLDOO\DSSURYHGDV perfectly  safe  for  consumption.   Likewise,  the  country  of  origin   and  place  of  manufacture  is  clearly   labeled  there,  creating  a  chain  of   accountability.   This  mandatory  labeling  is  all  the   more  important  for  GMO  ingredi-­ ents  that  affect  not  only  the  ingredi-­ ent  itself  and  the  chemicals  that  can   be  used  on  it,  but  also  the  viability,   integrity  and  sovereignty  of  our   entire  food  system,  which  is  in  the   process  of  rapid  privatization  â&#x20AC;&#x153;from   the  ground  up.â&#x20AC;?

/HWWHUIURP7LFRQGHURJDRIÂżFLDOFRQWDLQHGIDFWXDOHUURUV This  is  in  response  to  the  April   3  letter  by  Mr.  Grinnell  to  our   Addison  County  Regional  Planning   Commission. Need  to  hear  the  truth? New  York  wants  to  be  heard.  Well,   maybe  they  should  listen  to  some  of   the  bunk  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  been  fed  by  Vermont   Gas. The  Ticonderoga  town  supervisor   should  know  that  Vermont  Gas  said  it   isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  going  any  further  than  the  mill. Do  Essex  County  and  Ticonderoga   know  something  we  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t? To  reach  the  mill,  the  company   will  laterally  drill  under  Lake   Champlain.  This  type  of  drilling   could  have  what  they  refer  to  as  a   blowout  or  blowback.  Either  one   would  disturb  the  sludge  bed  (that  

International  Paper  created  with  its   polluting  practices).  Not  worth  the   risk  to  our  major  source  of  drinking   water. Grinnell  noted  over  $1  million   LQZDJHVDQGEHQHÂżWVSDLGWR Vermonters  working  in  the  mill.   According  to  the  statistics,  16   Vermonters  work  in  the  mill.  That   means  on  average  the  mill  pays   $62,500  to  its  employees.  Really?   Sign  me  up. Donna  Wadsworth,  an  IP  execu-­ tive,  clearly  stated  the  mill  will  no   longer  burn  No.  6  fuel  oil,  no  matter   what  happens  with  phase  two.  And   she  said  this  pipeline  is  not  the  only   FKRLFHIRUWKHPLOO7KHPLOOLVÂżQDQ-­ cially  solid  and  will  seek  gas  else-­ ZKHUHLIQRWIURPWKLVĂ&#x20AC;DZHGSURMHFW

At  a  Cornwall  selectboard   meeting  on  June  19,  2013,  Geoff   Demong  asked  about  the  $30  million   in  savings  to  IP.  Don  Gilbert  of   Vermont  Gas  said  he  understood   there  was  some  desire  to  try  to   extract  more  out  of  International   Paper  but  International  Paper  has   other  alternatives,  and  that  are  other   ways  for  natural  gas  to  arrive  at  that   plant.  At  which  point  the  whole  room   of  Cornwall  and  Shoreham  residents   erupted  in  applause. That  is  a  direct  contradiction  to   Mr.  Grinnellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  statement  that  extend-­ ing  the  pipeline  from  Vermont  is  the   only  way  the  IP  mill  could  access   natural  gas.
