Â It Â was Â the Â largest Â group Â of Â applicants Â in Â the Â collegeâ€™s Â history. Â Students Â will Â choose Â their Â college Â by Â May Â 1.

THE Â MIDDLEBURY Â COMMUNITY Â House Â was Â built Â by Â Horatio Â Seymour Â in Â 1816 Â and Â it Â was Â given Â to Â the Â people Â RI0LGGOHEXU\LQ Independent Â photos/Trent Â Campbell
Community Houseâ€™s future at stake By Â JOHN Â FLOWERS MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Middlebury Â Community Â House Â trustees Â on Â May Â 6 Â will Â seek Â public Â input Â in Â solving Â an Â ongo-Â LQJRSHUDWLQJEXGJHWGHÂżFLWWKDWWKUHDWHQVWRHDWDZD\DWDQ endowment Â fund Â that Â is Â supposed Â to Â be Â reserved Â for Â major Â repairs Â to Â the Â historic Â downtown Â structure. Built Â in Â 1816 Â across Â the Â street Â from Â the Â Congregation-Â al Â Church Â of Â Middlebury Â at Â the Â head Â of Â Main Â Street, Â the Â Middlebury Â Community Â House Â remains Â one Â of Â the Â best Â examples Â of Â post-Âcolonial, Â Federal-Âstyle Â architecture Â left Â in Â town. Â It Â was Â originally Â built Â as Â a Â residence Â for Â Horatio Â Seymour Â and Â his Â family. Â Seymourâ€™s Â great-Âgranddaughter, Â Jessica Â Stewart Â Swift Â and Â her Â brother, Â Philip Â Battell Â Stew-Â art, Â eventually Â inherited Â the Â property Â and Â gave Â it Â â€” Â and Â its Â furnishings Â â€” Â to Â â€œthe Â people Â of Â Middlebury Â and Â surround-Â ing Â areaâ€? Â back Â in Â 1938. It Â has Â since Â been Â maintained Â by Â trustees Â as Â a Â communi-Â ty Â asset, Â rented Â out Â for Â meetings Â and Â special Â events, Â such Â as Â bridal Â showers Â and Â small Â weddings. Â It Â also Â hosts Â some Â free Â community Â events, Â such Â as Â the Â annual Â visit Â from Â San-Â ta Â Claus Â in Â December Â and Â the Â childrenâ€™s Â Teddy Â Bear Â Tea, Â which Â was Â held Â earlier Â this Â week. But Â like Â most Â older Â homes, Â it Â is Â in Â constant Â need Â of Â main-Â tenance Â and Â periodic Â major Â repairs Â to Â ensure Â it Â remains Â structurally Â sound. Â Major Â repairs Â on Â the Â Community Â House Â to-Âdo Â list, Â according Â to Â trustees Â President Â Lynda Â Rheaume, Â LQFOXGHÂż[LQJDQGSDLQWLQJEDOXVWUDGHVSDLQWLQJWKHHQWLUH exterior Â of Â the Â structure, Â replacing Â shutters Â on Â many Â of Â the Â windows, Â and Â doing Â some Â interior Â foundation Â work. Â The Â fence Â that Â encircles Â the Â home Â also Â needs Â regular Â mainte-Â nance. Â Exterior Â painting Â alone Â is Â expected Â to Â cost Â upwards Â of Â $100,000, Â according Â to Â Rheaume. In Â an Â ideal Â world, Â interest Â from Â the Â Community Â House Â endowment Â fund Â would Â cover Â the Â costs Â of Â repair Â spread Â over Â several Â years. Â But Â the Â economy Â has Â not Â (until Â recently) Â generated Â substantial Â interest Â on Â the Â endowment Â principal, Â
DÂżJXUHWKDWWUXVWHHVDUHUHOXFWDQWWRGLVFORVHDWWKLVWLPH 2IÂżFLDOVDIHZ\HDUVDJRSODFHGWKHHQGRZPHQWDWOHVVWKDQ $400,000, Â a Â sum Â recently Â augmented Â by Â $200,000 Â thanks Â to Â the Â sale Â of Â around Â a Â third Â of Â an Â acre Â of Â land Â and Â the Â Commu-Â nity Â House Â cottage Â to Â the Â town Â to Â allow Â for Â expansion Â of Â the Â adjacent Â Middlebury Â Fire Â Department Â headquarters. But Â the Â additional Â $200,000 Â does Â not Â mean Â the Â Commu-Â QLW\+RXVHKDVDVHFXUHÂżQDQFLDOIXWXUHWUXVWHHVVWUHVVHG Thatâ€™s Â because Â the Â house Â has Â been Â generating Â roughly Â $10,000 Â in Â rental Â income Â per Â year Â that Â is Â falling Â far Â short Â of Â the Â approximately Â $50,000 Â it Â costs Â each Â year Â to Â keep Â the Â structure Â heated, Â maintained Â and Â managed Â by Â a Â staff Â of Â three Â (very) Â part-Âtime Â workers Â who Â manage Â housekeeping, Â ac-Â counting Â and Â coordination Â of Â events. Â So Â with Â no Â other Â op-Â tions Â right Â now, Â trustees Â are Â having Â to Â cover Â the Â annual Â oper-Â DWLQJGHÂżFLWZLWKHQGRZPHQWPRQH\DQGGRQDWLRQV â€œWe Â felt Â that Â if Â we Â didnâ€™t Â correct Â this Â situation, Â we Â would Â spend Â out Â the Â endowment Â in Â less Â than Â 10 Â years,â€? Â said Â trustee Â G. Â Kenneth Â Perine, Â president Â of Â the Â National Â Bank Â of Â Mid-Â dlebury. Â â€œWe Â just Â didnâ€™t Â think Â it Â was Â responsible Â to Â do Â that.â€? Only Â 20 Â years Â ago, Â rental Â fees Â and Â endowment Â covered Â operating Â costs Â for Â the Â facility, Â according Â to Â Perine. Â Not Â so Â today. â€œThe Â costs Â of Â fuel Â oil, Â electricity, Â salaries Â â€” Â all Â those Â issues Â have Â built Â to Â a Â point Â where Â the Â revenues Â we Â have Â gained Â from Â this Â activity Â have Â not Â kept Â up Â with Â expenses,â€? Â said Â Perine, Â who Â added Â people Â now Â have Â more Â meeting Â location Â options Â in Â the Â Middlebury Â area Â than Â they Â did Â two Â decades Â ago. Rental Â fees, Â to Â some Â extent Â based Â on Â donations, Â have Â on Â average Â been Â generating Â less Â than Â $100 Â per Â event, Â according Â to Â trustees. â€œWe Â try Â to Â be Â cognizant Â of Â what Â other Â places Â charge,â€? Â Perine Â said. Â â€œAnd Â this Â spot Â is Â not Â designed Â for Â certain Â meet-Â ingsâ€? Â given Â the Â lack Â of Â a Â large Â conference Â room. Â It Â is Â more Â suited Â to Â smaller, Â more Â intimate Â gatherings, Â trustees Â said. BRAINSTORMING Hence Â the Â sense Â of Â urgency Â with Â which Â Community Â House Â trustees Â are Â attacking Â the Â problem. Â They Â want Â to Â hear Â any Â and Â all Â ideas Â that Â citizens Â want Â to Â offer Â at Â the Â May Â 6 Â â€œbrainstormingâ€? Â meeting, Â to Â begin Â at Â 7 Â p.m. Â in Â the Â Ilsley Â Li-Â brary Â meeting Â room. Â Ideas Â are Â likely Â to Â range Â from Â simply Â increasing Â the Â rental Â fees Â to Â selling Â the Â Community Â House Â to Â a Â business Â or Â organization Â with Â the Â proviso Â that Â its Â historic Â integrity Â be Â maintained. Â Selling Â the Â house Â would Â likely Â have Â to Â be Â cleared Â by Â the Â courts, Â noted Â Rheaume. Â Proceeds Â from Â WKHVDOHFRXOGEHXVHGWRFUHDWHDIXQGWREHQHÂżWWKHFLWL]HQV of Â Middlebury, Â Perine Â theorized, Â thereby Â honoring Â Swiftâ€™s Â and Â Stewartâ€™s Â wishes. â€œWe Â are Â looking Â to Â the Â community Â to Â get Â some Â input,â€? Â Perine Â said. Â â€œIs Â there Â a Â need Â (for Â the Â Community Â House) Â out Â there Â that Â we Â are Â not Â aware Â of? Â A Â use Â of Â the Â house Â â€Ś Â that Â would Â be Â more Â applicable Â to Â today? Â And Â if Â we Â have Â to Â make Â some Â capital Â improvements Â to Â the Â property Â to Â support Â that Â use, Â we Â have Â to Â make Â sure Â there Â would Â be Â a Â good Â chance Â it Â would Â generate Â enough Â income Â to Â support Â itself Â and Â perhaps Â reasonable Â pay Â back Â to Â the Â endowment Â over Â a Â reasonable Â period Â of Â time.â€? If Â the Â Community Â House Â is Â put Â to Â a Â more Â modern, Â inten-Â sive Â use, Â it Â could Â require Â that Â the Â facility Â is Â sprinklered Â and Â made Â handicap-Âaccessible, Â Perine Â noted. â€œOur Â intent Â is Â to Â continue Â to Â use Â it Â in Â the Â way Â Jessica Â Swift Â gave Â it Â to Â the Â people Â of Â the Â town,â€? Â Perine Â said, Â â€œWe Â have Â asked Â what Â is Â the Â more Â important Â piece Â of Â that Â â€” Â is Â it Â helping Â the Â people Â of Â the Â town Â or Â preserving Â the Â building? Â We Â think Â that Â we Â would Â like Â to Â serve Â both Â of Â those Â ends. Â MIDDLEBURY Â COMMUNITY Â HOUSE Â Trustee Â Lynda Â ,IZHFDQÂżQGDXVHIRUWKHKRXVHWKDWSUHVHUYHVWKHKRXVH Rheaume Â will Â help Â lead Â a Â discussion Â at Â the Â Ilsley Â Li-Â EXWDOVRIXOÂżOOV-HVVLFDÂśVGHVLUHWKDWLWEHXVHGE\WKHFRP-Â brary Â on Â May Â 6 Â to Â gather Â ideas Â about Â how Â to Â make Â the Â munity Â in Â a Â meaningful Â way, Â then Â we Â will Â have Â met Â the Â &RPPXQLW\+RXVHÂżQDQFLDOO\VHOIVXSSRUWLQJ dual Â goals.â€?
Clippings (Continued Â from Â Page Â 4A) the Â running). Â We Â came Â home Â empty Â handed. Â The Â next Â morning Â I Â really Â wanted Â a Â piece Â of Â toast Â but Â was Â dis-Â heartened Â to Â discover Â a Â nearly Â empty Â box Â of Â dish Â detergent. Â I Â put Â a Â piece Â of Â bread Â in Â Toasty Â anyway Â and, Â do Â you Â believe Â in Â miracles? Â Yes! Â The Â blue Â light Â came Â on. Â The Â elements Â turned Â orange. Â The Â lever Â held. Â Toasty Â was Â back. Â He Â must Â have Â heard Â us Â talk-Â ing Â about Â getting Â a Â new Â toaster. Â He Â must Â have Â known Â his Â days Â were Â
numbered. Â Toasty Â didnâ€™t Â have Â a Â me-Â chanical Â or Â electrical Â problem. Â It Â was Â psychological! Â The Â threat Â of Â replace-Â ment Â spurred Â his Â recovery. Alas, Â it Â didnâ€™t Â last. Â Toasty Â started Â slipping Â again. Â I Â didnâ€™t Â know Â what Â to Â do Â so Â I Â started Â talking Â about Â him Â behind Â his Â back, Â but Â loud Â enough Â so Â that Â he Â could Â hear. Â â€œIâ€™ve Â really Â had Â it Â with Â that Â toaster,â€? Â I Â said. Â â€œThat Â toaster Â is Â the Â worst.â€? Â And Â â€œIâ€™m Â really Â going Â to Â buy Â a Â new Â one Â this Â time.â€? Â It Â didnâ€™t Â seem Â to Â work. Â Toasty Â was Â too Â
far Â gone, Â so Â last Â night Â I Â started Â writ-Â ing Â this Â column. Â I Â wanted Â to Â air Â it Â all Â out Â in Â the Â open. Â I Â wanted Â to Â be Â hon-Â est Â with Â myself Â and Â with Â Toasty. Â It Â felt Â good Â and Â I Â slept Â like Â a Â baby. Â And Â this Â morning? Â I Â kid Â you Â not, Â Toasty Â made Â me Â a Â perfect Â piece Â of Â toast. Â No Â slamming, Â no Â unplugging, Â no Â dish Â detergent. So Â maybe Â Toasty Â and Â I Â can Â solve Â our Â problems. Â Maybe Â I Â donâ€™t Â need Â to Â shop Â for Â a Â new Â toaster. Â Of Â course, Â I Â will Â need Â to Â shop Â for Â a Â good Â therapist.
Occasionally, Â upon Â hearing Â my Â ranting, Â some Â unhurried, Â kind-Â hearted Â lover Â of Â life Â will Â tell Â me Â we Â should Â all Â slow Â down, Â stop Â living Â by Â the Â clock Â and Â learn Â to Â be Â pres-Â ent Â in Â every Â moment. Â Maybe, Â but Â not Â on Â weekday Â afternoons. Â One Â personâ€™s Â spiritual Â transcendence Â shouldnâ€™t Â prevent Â the Â rest Â of Â us Â from Â getting Â dinner Â on Â the Â table Â before Â 9 Â p.m.
In Â fact, Â I Â advise Â just Â the Â opposite. Â If Â youâ€™re Â running Â errands Â during Â rush Â hour, Â consider Â moving Â a Â little Â faster, Â keeping Â an Â eye Â on Â the Â clock, Â and Â actively Â avoiding Â even Â a Â hint Â of Â inner Â peace, Â particularly Â if Â you Â are Â in Â line Â in Â front Â of Â me. Â If Â you Â really Â care Â about Â making Â the Â world Â a Â happier Â place, Â you Â owe Â it Â to Â your Â fellow Â human Â beings Â to Â be Â as Â stressed Â out Â as Â the Â rest Â of Â us.

Â This Â statement Â is Â demonstrably Â false;Íž Â obviously Â the Â editor Â is Â ignorant Â of Â the Â NICS Â system, Â but Â has Â an Â interest Â in Â pushing Â his Â own Â â€œprogressiveâ€? Â agenda.
In Â the Â last Â paragraph, Â the Â editor Â states Â that Â the Â issue Â is Â â€œnot Â about Â preventing Â Americans Â from Â owning Â guns, Â in Â general, Â but Â rather Â limiting Â DFFHVVWRKLJKO\VSHFLÂżFZHDSRQV whose Â primary Â intent Â is Â to Â kill Â people Â ZLWKUDSLGÂżUHSUHFLVLRQÂ´7REH sure, Â the Â weapons Â being Â discussed Â in Â Washington Â at Â the Â moment Â are Â capable Â of Â that, Â but Â only Â if Â that Â is Â the Â ownerâ€™s Â intent. Â Some Â 99.9997 Â percent Â of Â gun Â owners Â use Â their Â guns Â safely Â and Â responsibly Â and, Â by Â the Â way, Â the Â style Â of Â gun Â the Â editor Â is Â moaning Â about Â is Â also Â used Â for Â predator Â hunting, Â varmint Â hunt-Â LQJDQGWDUJHWPDWFKHV5LĂ€HVRI ANY Â KIND Â were Â used Â in Â far Â fewer Â accidental Â deaths Â in Â the Â U.S. Â last Â year Â than Â knives, Â feet Â and Â hands, Â or Â automobiles.

If Â weâ€™re Â going Â to Â move Â forward Â in Â preventing Â gun Â violence, Â the Â citizens Â
of Â Addison Â County Â and Â the Â rest Â of Â the Â state Â deserve Â the Â WHOLE Â truth, Â not Â the Â half-Âtruths Â cooked Â up Â by Â the Â HGLWRUWRÂżWKLVVRFLDOLVWDJHQGD$VD resident Â of Â Addison Â County Â and Â law-Â abiding Â gun Â owner, Â I Â demand Â better Â than Â the Â snake Â oil Â being Â peddled Â by Â the Â obviously Â ignorant Â Mr. Â Lynn Â on Â this Â topic. Jeff Â Siewert Monkton Editorâ€™s Â note: Â Mr. Â Siewert Â is Â wrong. Â While Â federally Â licensed Â gun Â dealers Â must Â conduct Â background Â checks Â at Â gunshows, Â non-Âlicensed Â dealers Â (or Â those Â who Â do Â not Â make Â a Â â€œlivingâ€? Â selling Â guns) Â are Â not Â ob-Â ligated Â to Â make Â background Â checks. Â According Â to Â the Â Bureau Â of Â Alcohol, Â Tobacco Â and Â Firearms, Â between Â 25 Â percent Â to Â 50 Â percent Â of Â sellers Â at Â such Â shows Â are Â not Â licensed Â dealers. Â The Â gun Â show Â loophole Â is Â another Â similar Â measure Â that Â avoids Â track-Â ing Â gun Â sales.
Brandon Â re-Âvote Â offers Â new Â opportunity Â for Â answers I Â write Â in Â response Â to Â the Â letter Â to Â the Â editor Â in Â The Â Brandon Â Reporter Â from Â Gary Â Mefee Â and Â his Â six Â co-Â signers Â with Â regards Â to Â the Â April Â 30 Â reconsideration Â vote Â of Â the Â Bran-Â don Â town Â budget. The Â Vermont Â Legislature Â adopted Â this Â statute Â that Â allows Â reconsidera-Â tion Â more Â than Â 30 Â years Â ago Â and Â in Â my Â 24-Âplus Â years Â in Â Brandon Â I Â EHOLHYHWKLVLVWKHÂżUVWWLPHLWKDV been Â utilized. Â I Â think Â that Â speaks Â to Â the Â thoughtfulness Â and Â spirit Â of Â the Â Brandon Â electorate. Â I Â have Â lived Â in Â towns Â that Â use Â this Â statute Â as Â a Â mat-Â ter Â of Â course Â and Â I Â agree Â that Â is Â not Â what Â it Â was Â intended Â to Â be Â used Â for. There Â is Â a Â very Â high Â threshold Â that Â is Â required Â for Â this Â reconsid-Â eration Â to Â be Â held. Â It Â requires Â legal Â signatures Â of Â 20 Â percent Â of Â the Â registered Â voters. Â In Â the Â case Â of Â Brandon Â that Â is Â more Â than Â either Â the Â pros Â or Â cons Â in Â the Â original Â vote. Â It Â also Â requires Â that Â those Â signatures Â be Â submitted Â within Â 30 Â days Â ... Â a Â relatively Â small Â window Â
in Â a Â small Â town. For Â me Â personally, Â I Â feel Â that Â there Â were Â several Â unanswered Â questions Â that Â confused Â the Â vote Â and Â therefore Â may Â have Â affected Â its Â outcome. Â I Â like Â to Â go Â to Â the Â source Â when Â I Â have Â questions Â about Â things Â and Â so Â my Â two Â questions Â on Â the Â town Â budget Â were Â taken Â to Â people Â who Â were Â in Â positions Â to Â know Â the Â answers. 0\ÂżUVWTXHVWLRQZDVZLWK regards Â to Â the Â new Â grader Â for Â the Â highway Â department. Â I Â asked Â was Â it Â to Â replace Â the Â current Â grader. Â I Â received Â two Â answers: Â One Â said Â yes Â it Â was Â a Â replacement. Â The Â second Â said Â no Â it Â was Â to Â be Â in Â addition Â to Â the Â current Â equipment Â because Â the Â one Â grader Â was Â not Â enough Â for Â all Â the Â roads. Â Which Â was Â correct? My Â second Â question Â was Â with Â regards Â to Â the Â recreation Â director Â position. Â I Â asked Â was Â this Â to Â be Â the Â elimination Â of Â the Â two Â part-Âtime Â positions Â into Â one Â full-Âtime Â posi-Â tion. Â Again Â I Â received Â two Â answers: Â
Letter (Continued Â from Â Page Â 4A) â€œprivate Â property Â ought Â to Â be Â sub-Â servient Â to Â public Â use,â€? Â while Â at Â the Â same Â time Â providing Â compensation Â to Â people Â whose Â property Â rights Â are Â affected Â by Â public Â policy. That Â is Â a Â misleading Â state-Â ment Â taken Â out Â of Â context, Â and Â it Â troubles Â me Â to Â know Â an Â elected Â RIÂżFLDOZRXOGXVHVXFKWDFWLFVWR SURPRWHDQGLQĂ€XHQFHWKHRXWFRPH of Â an Â issue Â with Â such Â far Â reaching Â consequences. Â What Â Article Â 2 Â of Â the Â Vermont Â State Â Constitution Â actually Â says Â is Â this: Â That Â private Â property Â ought Â to Â be Â subservient Â to Â public Â uses Â when Â necessity Â requires Â it, Â
One Â said Â yes Â it Â was Â the Â elimination Â of Â both Â part-Âtime Â positions Â into Â one Â full-Âtime Â position. Â The Â second Â an-Â swer Â was Â that Â one Â part-Âtime Â position Â would Â become Â a Â full-Âtime Â position Â and Â the Â second Â part-Âtime Â position Â would Â remain. Â Which Â was Â correct? I Â was Â confused Â enough Â that Â I Â could Â not Â support Â the Â budget Â as Â presented. Â Then Â right Â after Â the Â vote Â and Â before Â the Â petitions Â were Â circulated Â and Â submitted Â for Â the Â reconsid-Â eration Â our Â town Â manager Â of Â nine Â years Â resigned. Â So Â that Â added Â a Â new Â concern Â for Â me Â ... Â will Â the Â town Â PDQDJHUÂśVVDODU\DQGEHQHÂżWVSDFN-Â age Â be Â the Â same Â for Â the Â new Â town Â manager Â as Â was Â in Â the Â proposed Â budget? My Â hope Â is Â that Â these Â questions Â and Â those Â that Â others Â may Â have Â will Â be Â answered Â by Â the Â selectboard Â prior Â to Â the Â April Â 30 Â Reconsidera-Â tion Â vote.

Real Â Estate Â and Â You nevertheless, Â whenever Â any Â personâ€™s Â property Â is Â taken Â for Â the Â use Â of Â the Â public, Â the Â owner Â ought Â to Â receive Â an Â equivalent Â in Â money.

Â The Â mere Â thought Â of Â the Â state Â taking Â 250 Â feet Â of Â land Â around Â every Â water Â body Â in Â the Â state Â sends Â shivers Â up Â my Â spine, Â but Â that Â is Â exactly Â what Â the Â senator Â suggests Â with Â his Â comment, Â and Â is Â one Â of Â the Â many Â reasons Â this Â bill Â should Â be Â shredded Â and Â sent Â out Â with Â the Â daily Â garbage.

Migrant Â workers (Continued Â from Â Page Â 1A) will Â sign Â S.38 Â into Â law Â if Â it Â reaches Â his Â desk. Â â€œIt Â came Â to Â the Â House Â with Â such Â overwhelming Â support,â€? Â said Â Lanpher, Â whose Â committee Â drafted Â the Â initial Â version Â of Â the Â bill. Â â€œIf Â thereâ€™s Â time Â be-Â fore Â the Â end Â of Â the Â session Â â€” Â and Â of Â course, Â no Â guarantees Â â€” Â I Â do Â believe Â that Â we Â want Â to Â see Â it Â through Â to Â the Â ÂżQLVKÂ´ Opponents Â have Â argued, Â among Â other Â things, Â that Â driving Â is Â a Â privi-Â lege Â that Â should Â not Â be Â granted Â to Â un-Â documented Â workers Â who Â entered Â the Â country Â illegally;Íž Â that Â South Â Ameri-Â can Â drug Â cartels Â could Â take Â advantage Â of Â the Â program Â and Â increase Â crime Â in Â the Â state Â (a Â theory Â that Â has Â been Â roundly Â debunked Â by Â lawmakers);Íž Â and Â that Â granting Â migrant Â workers Â driversâ€™ Â licenses Â would Â result Â in Â farm-Â ers Â losing Â some Â laborers Â because Â they Â could Â leave Â farms Â to Â seek Â higher Â pay-Â ing Â jobs Â elsewhere. Last Â Thursday, Â the Â House Â heard Â testimony Â from Â Addison Â and Â Frank-Â lin Â county Â migrant Â workers, Â farmers Â and Â clergy Â in Â support Â of Â the Â bill. Â In Â an Â interview Â immediately Â following Â the Â hearings, Â Lanpher Â characterized Â the Â testimonies Â as Â â€œvery Â powerful.â€? â€œWithin Â our Â whole Â state Â we Â have Â communities Â in Â the Â corners Â and Â in Â the Â shadows,â€? Â she Â said. Â She Â added Â that Â Vermontâ€™s Â rural Â landscape Â made Â workers Â especially Â isolated, Â with Â many Â going Â months Â or Â even Â years Â without Â leaving, Â unable Â to Â visit Â friends Â or Â attend Â to Â their Â daily Â needs Â like Â buy-Â ing Â groceries Â or Â visiting Â friends Â and Â family Â working Â at Â nearby Â farms. Â But Â few Â seem Â to Â dispute Â that Â mi-Â grant Â worker Â are Â central Â to Â the Â sur-Â vival Â of Â the Â struggling Â dairy Â industry.
â€œThis Â is Â the Â plight Â of Â the Â people Â But Â at Â the Â other Â end Â of Â the Â spectrum Â who Â feed Â us,â€? Â Lanpher Â said.

WELCOME Â CHANGE There Â was Â a Â palpable Â change Â in Â the Â air Â at Â Mondayâ€™s Â selectboard Â meeting, Â which Â was Â well Â attended Â by Â roughly Â 30 Â residents. Â There Â was Â a Â feeling Â of Â satisfaction Â and Â goodwill Â that Â has Â been Â missing Â from Â the Â board, Â not Â just Â since Â Arlundâ€™s Â resignation, Â but Â perhaps Â since Â before Â Tropical Â Storm Â Irene Â in Â August Â 2011. Â The Â board Â has Â been Â working Â to Â keep Â a Â multitude Â of Â projects Â moving, Â and Â it Â has Â been Â an Â uphill Â battle. Â While Â Baker Â has Â often Â been Â a Â lone Â dissenter Â on Â issues Â be-Â fore Â the Â board, Â Fuller Â said Â he Â hoped Â the Â town Â could Â now Â make Â some Â progress. â€œWe Â express Â our Â deepest Â gratitude Â to Â Richard Â Baker Â for Â stepping Â into Â his Â new Â role Â and Â we Â hope Â we Â can Â all Â move Â forward,â€? Â Fuller Â said. Â â€œWe Â always Â talk Â about Â moving Â forward. Â +RSHIXOO\ ZH FDQ ÂżQG FRPPRQ ground Â instead Â of Â controversy.â€? As Â for Â Baker, Â it Â was Â noted Â that Â he Â
would Â now Â have Â to Â ascribe Â to Â a Â very Â different Â dynamic, Â one Â where Â he Â is Â working Â for Â the Â board Â rather Â than Â sit-Â ting Â on Â it.

Â mentality Â extends Â to Â the Â board, Â and Â he Â is Â looking Â forward Â to Â spending Â more Â time Â with Â Fuller Â and Â the Â board Â members Â than Â Arlund Â did. Â He Â plans Â to Â communicate Â more Â with Â staff Â members Â and Â hold Â regular Â meetings Â in Â an Â effort Â to Â improve Â staff Â morale. Baker Â said Â he Â is Â just Â writing Â ev-Â erything Â down Â and Â is Â working Â with Â )XOOHURQDĂ€RZFKDUWLQDQHIIRUWWR organize Â and Â keep Â track Â of Â the Â prog-Â ress Â on Â town Â projects.

The Â move Â comes Â one Â month Â after Â former Â Town Â Manager Â Keith Â Arlund Â suddenly Â resigned Â after Â nine Â years Â on Â the Â job Â to Â take Â a Â position Â in Â the Â pri-Â vate Â sector. Â Arlund Â gave Â two Â weeks Â notice Â and Â left Â the Â townâ€™s Â employ Â on Â March Â 22. Â The Â board Â has Â been Â work-Â ing Â with Â the Â Vermont Â League Â of Â Cit-Â ies Â and Â Towns Â to Â not Â only Â advertise Â for Â a Â permanent Â replacement, Â but Â DOVR ÂżQG DQ LQWHULP WRZQ PDQDJHU to Â keep Â the Â town Â operating Â while Â the Â months-Âlong Â search Â proceeds.

Â â€œWe Â promised Â the Â chief Â it Â would Â only Â be Â for Â a Â few Â weeks, Â and Â we Â felt Â it Â was Â important Â to Â have Â him Â resume Â his Â duties Â as Â police Â chief. Â Iâ€™d Â rather Â have Â him Â chasing Â heroin Â dealers Â than Â run-Â ning Â the Â town.â€? Arlundâ€™s Â resignation Â came Â at Â a Â cru-Â cial Â time Â for Â Brandon Â with Â a Â host Â of Â complex Â projects Â looming, Â including Â a Â water Â line Â project Â set Â to Â start Â this Â summer Â and Â the Â long-Âawaited Â Seg-Â ment Â 6 Â upgrade Â of Â Route Â 7 Â through Â the Â downtown.

Â The Â new Â facility, Â he Â believes, Â is Â a Â re-Â ward Â for Â all Â the Â hard Â work Â that Â VHC Â workers Â have Â put Â into Â perfecting Â the Â VHC Â brand Â and Â persevering Â through Â some Â tough Â times Â during Â the Â 1990s Â when Â Williams Â did Â not Â know Â if Â the Â company Â would Â survive.

Â The Â new Â calendar Â would, Â among Â other Â things, Â UHTXLUHSDUHQWVWRUHFRQÂżJXUHYDFDWLRQ plans Â and Â line Â up Â supervision Â and/or Â activities Â on Â the Â new Â no-Âschool Â days. In Â the Â meantime, Â local Â superinten-Â dents Â are Â cautiously Â evaluating Â Cal-Â HQGDU7KH\VDLGWKHUHDUHQRÂżUP plans Â at Â this Â point Â to Â implement Â it Â in Â Addison Â County, Â though Â local Â school Â communities Â will Â get Â a Â chance Â to Â hear Â about Â it Â and Â weigh Â in Â on Â it. â€œI Â predict Â we Â will Â take Â a Â wait-Âand-Â see Â approach Â with Â this,â€? Â Addison Â Cen-Â tral Â Supervisory Â Union Â Superintendent Â Gail Â Conley Â said. Â â€œThe Â impetus Â for Â this Â is Â coming Â from Â Chittenden Â Coun-Â ty. Â There Â are Â a Â lot Â of Â complications Â that Â need Â to Â be Â resolved.â€? Conley Â will Â retire Â on Â June Â 30 Â and Â will Â be Â succeeded Â by Â newly Â hired Â Su-Â perintendent Â Peter Â L. Â Burrows. Â Conley Â said Â he Â believes Â Calendar Â 2.0 Â has Â many Â academic Â merits, Â but Â acknowledged Â that Â its Â implementation Â would Â require Â a Â â€œserious Â period Â of Â adjustment. â€œTo Â be Â successful, Â it Â would Â require Â a Â buy-Âin Â from Â parents, Â teachers Â and Â the Â communities Â at Â large,â€? Â he Â said. Addison Â Northeast Â Superintendent Â David Â Adams Â said Â there Â are Â no Â imme-Â diate Â plans Â to Â put Â Calendar Â 2.0 Â in Â place Â in Â the Â Bristol-Âarea Â schools, Â though Â he Â
called Â it Â an Â â€œexciting Â proposalâ€? Â that Â could Â provide Â some Â new Â opportunities Â for Â students Â and Â teacher Â training. Âł&DOHQGDU LV D ZD\ WR EHJLQ this Â conversation Â to Â provide Â a Â new Â structure Â of Â learning Â for Â our Â students,â€? Â Adams Â said. Â â€œThis Â is Â a Â very Â exciting Â time Â for Â us Â to Â be Â talking Â about Â this.â€? AGRARIAN Â CYCLES Many Â Addison Â County Â schools Â are Â WLHGLQWRDQDJUDULDQFDOHQGDURIÂżFLDOV noted. Â Itâ€™s Â a Â calendar Â that Â has Â histori-Â cally Â ensured Â that Â young Â people Â were Â available Â to Â help Â out Â at Â farms Â or Â at Â home Â at Â key Â harvest Â times. Addison Â Northwest Â Superintendent Â Tom Â Oâ€™Brien Â said Â Vergennes-Âarea Â schools Â have Â made Â no Â decision Â on Â Cal-Â HQGDUKHQRWHG$1Z68RIÂżFLDOV have Â been Â adjusting Â school Â days Â in Â other Â ways, Â such Â as Â extending, Â maxi-Â PL]LQJDQGPDNLQJPRUHĂ€H[LEOHWKH amount Â of Â time Â that Â students Â spend Â in Â the Â classroom. He Â anticipated Â school Â directors Â will Â take Â a Â look Â at Â the Â Calendar Â 2.0 Â propos-Â al. Â Like Â Conley Â and Â Adams, Â Oâ€™Brien Â anticipates Â that Â local Â parents Â in Â partic-Â ular Â will Â raise Â concerns Â about Â how Â the Â new Â calendar Â would Â affect Â their Â work Â and Â vacation Â schedules. â€œIt Â requires Â managing,â€? Â he Â said. Schools Â that Â adopt Â the Â new Â calendar Â
would Â have Â to Â coordinate Â with Â their Â lo-Â cal Â vocational-Âtechnical Â center. Teachers, Â meanwhile, Â have Â thus Â far Â heard Â little Â about Â Calendar Â 2.0. Lisa Â Beck Â is Â chief Â negotiator Â for Â the Â Addison Â Central Â Education Â Associa-Â tion, Â which Â represents Â teachers Â in Â the Â elementary Â schools Â of Â Bridport, Â Corn-Â wall, Â Ripton, Â Salisbury, Â Shoreham Â and Â Weybridge. â€œTeachers Â here Â have Â not Â been Â a Â part Â of Â any Â of Â the Â conversations Â and Â have Â not Â had Â an Â opportunity Â to Â talk Â about Â &DOHQGDU Â´%HFNVDLG Speaking Â as Â an Â individual, Â Beck Â said Â she Â is Â concerned Â about Â the Â potential Â impacts Â on Â families Â and Â continuity Â in Â the Â classroom, Â which Â she Â fears Â could Â be Â disrupted Â by Â newly Â created Â sched-Â ule Â breaks. Â She Â also Â wonders Â if Â orga-Â QL]HUV ZLOO LQGHHG EH DEOH WR ÂżQG WKH necessary Â funding Â to Â pay Â for Â the Â plan. But Â Pinckney Â believes Â the Â pros Â of Â the Â new Â calendar Â outweigh Â the Â cons. â€œThe Â main Â thing Â is, Â the Â calendar Â supports Â student Â learning,â€? Â Pinckney Â said. Â â€œIt Â provides Â lots Â of Â opportuni-Â ties Â for Â interventions Â for Â kids Â and Â op-Â portunities Â for Â embedded Â professional Â development Â for Â teachers.
