Built   in   1816   across   the   street   from   the   Congregation-­ al   Church   of   Middlebury   at   the   head   of   Main   Street,   the   Middlebury   Community   House   remains   one   of   the   best   examples   of   post-­colonial,   Federal-­style   architecture   left   in  town.  It  was  originally  built  as  a  residence  for  Horatio   Seymour   and   his   family.   Seymourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   great-­granddaughter,   Jessica  Stewart  Swift  and  her  brother,  Philip  Battell  Stew-­ art,  eventually  inherited  the  property  and  gave  it  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  its   furnishings  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;the  people  of  Middlebury  and  surround-­ ing  areaâ&#x20AC;?  back  in  1938. It  has  since  been  maintained  by  trustees  as  a  communi-­ ty  asset,  rented  out  for  meetings  and  special  events,  such   as  bridal  showers  and  small  weddings.  It  also  hosts  some   free  community  events,  such  as  the  annual  visit  from  San-­ ta  Claus  in  December  and  the  childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Teddy  Bear  Tea,   which  was  held  earlier  this  week. But  like  most  older  homes,  it  is  in  constant  need  of  main-­ tenance   and   periodic   major   repairs   to   ensure   it   remains   structurally  sound.  Major  repairs  on  the  Community  House   to-­do  list,  according  to  trustees  President  Lynda  Rheaume,   LQFOXGHÂż[LQJDQGSDLQWLQJEDOXVWUDGHVSDLQWLQJWKHHQWLUH exterior  of  the  structure,  replacing  shutters  on  many  of  the   windows,   and   doing   some   interior   foundation   work.   The   fence   that   encircles   the   home   also   needs   regular   mainte-­ nance.  Exterior  painting  alone  is  expected  to  cost  upwards   of  $100,000,  according  to  Rheaume. In  an  ideal  world,  interest  from  the  Community  House   endowment   fund   would   cover   the   costs   of   repair   spread   over  several  years.  But  the  economy  has  not  (until  recently)   generated  substantial  interest  on  the  endowment  principal,

But  the  additional  $200,000  does  not  mean  the  Commu-­ QLW\+RXVHKDVDVHFXUHÂżQDQFLDOIXWXUHWUXVWHHVVWUHVVHG Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   because   the   house   has   been   generating   roughly   $10,000   in   rental   income   per   year   that   is   falling   far   short   of  the  approximately  $50,000  it  costs  each  year  to  keep  the   structure  heated,  maintained  and  managed  by  a  staff  of  three   (very)   part-­time   workers   who   manage   housekeeping,   ac-­ counting  and  coordination  of  events.  So  with  no  other  op-­ tions  right  now,  trustees  are  having  to  cover  the  annual  oper-­ DWLQJGHÂżFLWZLWKHQGRZPHQWPRQH\DQGGRQDWLRQV â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  felt  that  if  we  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  correct  this  situation,  we  would   spend  out  the  endowment  in  less  than  10  years,â&#x20AC;?  said  trustee   G.  Kenneth  Perine,  president  of  the  National  Bank  of  Mid-­ dlebury.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  just  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  think  it  was  responsible  to  do  that.â&#x20AC;? Only  20  years  ago,  rental  fees  and  endowment  covered   operating  costs  for  the  facility,  according  to  Perine.  Not  so   today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   costs   of   fuel   oil,   electricity,   salaries   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   all   those   issues   have   built   to   a   point   where   the   revenues   we   have   gained  from  this  activity  have  not  kept  up  with  expenses,â&#x20AC;?   said   Perine,   who   added   people   now   have   more   meeting   location  options  in  the  Middlebury  area  than  they  did  two   decades  ago. Rental  fees,  to  some  extent  based  on  donations,  have  on   average  been  generating  less  than  $100  per  event,  according   to  trustees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   try   to   be   cognizant   of   what   other   places   charge,â&#x20AC;?   Perine  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;And  this  spot  is  not  designed  for  certain  meet-­ ingsâ&#x20AC;?  given  the  lack  of  a  large  conference  room.  It  is  more   suited  to  smaller,  more  intimate  gatherings,  trustees  said. BRAINSTORMING Hence   the   sense   of   urgency   with   which   Community   House  trustees  are  attacking  the  problem.  They  want  to  hear   any  and  all  ideas  that  citizens  want  to  offer  at  the  May  6   â&#x20AC;&#x153;brainstormingâ&#x20AC;?  meeting,  to  begin  at  7  p.m.  in  the  Ilsley  Li-­ brary  meeting  room.  Ideas  are  likely  to  range  from  simply   increasing  the  rental  fees  to  selling  the  Community  House   to  a  business  or  organization  with  the  proviso  that  its  historic   integrity  be  maintained.  Selling  the  house  would  likely  have   to  be  cleared  by  the  courts,  noted  Rheaume.  Proceeds  from   WKHVDOHFRXOGEHXVHGWRFUHDWHDIXQGWREHQHÂżWWKHFLWL]HQV of  Middlebury,  Perine  theorized,  thereby  honoring  Swiftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   and  Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  wishes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   are   looking   to   the   community   to   get   some   input,â&#x20AC;?   Perine  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is  there  a  need  (for  the  Community  House)  out   there  that  we  are  not  aware  of?  A  use  of  the  house  â&#x20AC;Ś  that   would  be  more  applicable  to  today?  And  if  we  have  to  make   some  capital  improvements  to  the  property  to  support  that   use,  we  have  to  make  sure  there  would  be  a  good  chance  it   would  generate  enough  income  to  support  itself  and  perhaps   reasonable   pay   back   to   the   endowment   over   a   reasonable   period  of  time.â&#x20AC;? If  the  Community  House  is  put  to  a  more  modern,  inten-­ sive  use,  it  could  require  that  the  facility  is  sprinklered  and   made  handicap-­accessible,  Perine  noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our   intent   is   to   continue   to   use   it   in   the   way   Jessica   Swift  gave  it  to  the  people  of  the  town,â&#x20AC;?  Perine  said,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   have  asked  what  is  the  more  important  piece  of  that  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  is  it   helping  the  people  of  the  town  or  preserving  the  building?   We  think  that  we  would  like  to  serve  both  of  those  ends.   MIDDLEBURY  COMMUNITY  HOUSE  Trustee  Lynda   ,IZHFDQÂżQGDXVHIRUWKHKRXVHWKDWSUHVHUYHVWKHKRXVH Rheaume  will  help  lead  a  discussion  at  the  Ilsley  Li-­ EXWDOVRIXOÂżOOV-HVVLFDÂśVGHVLUHWKDWLWEHXVHGE\WKHFRP-­ brary  on  May  6  to  gather  ideas  about  how  to  make  the   munity   in   a   meaningful   way,   then   we   will   have   met   the   &RPPXQLW\+RXVHÂżQDQFLDOO\VHOIVXSSRUWLQJ dual  goals.â&#x20AC;?

Clippings (Continued  from  Page  4A) the  running).  We  came  home  empty   handed.   The   next   morning   I   really   wanted  a  piece  of  toast  but  was  dis-­ heartened  to  discover  a  nearly  empty   box  of  dish  detergent.  I  put  a  piece  of   bread  in  Toasty  anyway  and,  do  you   believe   in   miracles?   Yes!   The   blue   light   came   on.  The   elements   turned   orange.   The   lever   held.   Toasty   was   back.   He   must   have   heard   us   talk-­ ing   about   getting   a   new   toaster.   He   must   have   known   his   days   were  

numbered.  Toasty  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  have  a  me-­ chanical  or  electrical  problem.  It  was   psychological!  The  threat  of  replace-­ ment  spurred  his  recovery. Alas,   it   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   last.  Toasty   started   slipping   again.   I   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   know   what   to  do  so  I  started  talking  about  him   behind  his  back,  but  loud  enough  so   that   he   could   hear.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   really   had   it   with   that   toaster,â&#x20AC;?   I   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;That   toaster  is  the  worst.â&#x20AC;?  And  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  really   going  to  buy  a  new  one  this  time.â&#x20AC;?  It   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  seem  to  work.  Toasty  was  too  

far  gone,  so  last  night  I  started  writ-­ ing  this  column.  I  wanted  to  air  it  all   out  in  the  open.  I  wanted  to  be  hon-­ est   with   myself   and   with   Toasty.   It   felt  good  and  I  slept  like  a  baby.  And   this  morning?  I  kid  you  not,  Toasty   made  me  a  perfect  piece  of  toast.  No   slamming,   no   unplugging,   no   dish   detergent. So   maybe   Toasty   and   I   can   solve   our  problems.  Maybe  I  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  need  to   shop   for   a   new   toaster.   Of   course,   I   will  need  to  shop  for  a  good  therapist.

Occasionally,  upon   hearing   my   ranting,   some   unhurried,   kind-­ hearted  lover  of  life  will  tell  me  we   should   all   slow   down,   stop   living   by   the   clock   and   learn   to   be   pres-­ ent   in   every   moment.   Maybe,   but   not   on   weekday   afternoons.   One   personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   spiritual   transcendence   shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   prevent   the   rest   of   us   from   getting   dinner   on   the   table   before  9  p.m.

In  fact,  I  advise  just  the  opposite.   If   youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   running   errands   during   rush   hour,   consider   moving   a   little   faster,  keeping  an  eye  on  the  clock,   and  actively  avoiding  even  a  hint  of   inner   peace,   particularly   if   you   are   in  line  in  front  of  me.   If   you   really   care   about   making   the  world  a  happier  place,  you  owe   it  to  your  fellow  human  beings  to  be   as  stressed  out  as  the  rest  of  us.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  writing  to  set  the  editor   straight  on  some  statements  con-­ cerning  gun  ownership  and  transac-­ tions  that  Mr.  Lynn,  in  his  anti-­gun   diatribe  that  was  passed  off  as  an   editorial  in  the  April  1  Addison  Inde-­ pendent,  has  woefully  incorrect. In  the  second  paragraph,  the  editor   implies  that  sales  that  occur  at  places   â&#x20AC;&#x153;like  gun  showsâ&#x20AC;?  do  not  require  Na-­ tional  Instant  Criminal  Background   Check  System  (NICS)  checks.  EV-­ (5<IHGHUDOÂżUHDUPVOLFHQVHKROGHU must  conduct  a  background  check   RQUHFLSLHQWVRIÂżUHDUPVWUDQVIHUV regardless  of  the  location. To  paraphrase,  the  editor  also   states  in  paragraph  3  that  â&#x20AC;&#x153;mentally   ill  people  could  buy  assault  weapons   with  no  questioning  about  their  back-­ ground  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  including  criminal  records   or  mental  stability.â&#x20AC;?  This  statement   is  demonstrably  false;Íž  obviously   the  editor  is  ignorant  of  the  NICS   system,  but  has  an  interest  in  pushing   his  own  â&#x20AC;&#x153;progressiveâ&#x20AC;?  agenda.

In  the  last  paragraph,  the  editor   states  that  the  issue  is  â&#x20AC;&#x153;not  about   preventing  Americans  from  owning   guns,  in  general,  but  rather  limiting   DFFHVVWRKLJKO\VSHFLÂżFZHDSRQV whose  primary  intent  is  to  kill  people   ZLWKUDSLGÂżUHSUHFLVLRQ´7REH sure,  the  weapons  being  discussed   in  Washington  at  the  moment  are   capable  of  that,  but  only  if  that  is   the  ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  intent.  Some  99.9997   percent  of  gun  owners  use  their   guns  safely  and  responsibly  and,  by   the  way,  the  style  of  gun  the  editor   is  moaning  about  is  also  used  for   predator  hunting,  varmint  hunt-­ LQJDQGWDUJHWPDWFKHV5LĂ&#x20AC;HVRI ANY  KIND  were  used  in  far  fewer   accidental  deaths  in  the  U.S.  last   year  than  knives,  feet  and  hands,   or  automobiles.  The  editor  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   seem  concerned  with  those,  however,   EHFDXVHDQDVW\EODFNULĂ&#x20AC;HZDVQÂśW involved. If  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  going  to  move  forward  in   preventing  gun  violence,  the  citizens  

of  Addison  County  and  the  rest  of   the  state  deserve  the  WHOLE  truth,   not  the  half-­truths  cooked  up  by  the   HGLWRUWRÂżWKLVVRFLDOLVWDJHQGD$VD resident  of  Addison  County  and  law-­ abiding  gun  owner,  I  demand  better   than  the  snake  oil  being  peddled  by   the  obviously  ignorant  Mr.  Lynn  on   this  topic. Jeff  Siewert Monkton Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  note:  Mr.  Siewert  is   wrong.  While  federally  licensed  gun   dealers  must  conduct  background   checks  at  gunshows,  non-­licensed   dealers  (or  those  who  do  not  make   a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;livingâ&#x20AC;?  selling  guns)  are  not  ob-­ ligated  to  make  background  checks.   According  to  the  Bureau  of  Alcohol,   Tobacco  and  Firearms,  between  25   percent  to  50  percent  of  sellers  at   such  shows  are  not  licensed  dealers.   The  gun  show  loophole  is  another   similar  measure  that  avoids  track-­ ing  gun  sales.

Brandon  re-­vote  offers  new  opportunity  for  answers I  write  in  response  to  the  letter  to   the  editor  in  The  Brandon  Reporter   from  Gary  Mefee  and  his  six  co-­ signers  with  regards  to  the  April  30   reconsideration  vote  of  the  Bran-­ don  town  budget. The  Vermont  Legislature  adopted   this  statute  that  allows  reconsidera-­ tion  more  than  30  years  ago  and   in  my  24-­plus  years  in  Brandon  I   EHOLHYHWKLVLVWKH¿UVWWLPHLWKDV been  utilized.  I  think  that  speaks  to   the  thoughtfulness  and  spirit  of  the   Brandon  electorate.  I  have  lived  in   towns  that  use  this  statute  as  a  mat-­ ter  of  course  and  I  agree  that  is  not   what  it  was  intended  to  be  used  for. There  is  a  very  high  threshold   that  is  required  for  this  reconsid-­ eration  to  be  held.  It  requires  legal   signatures  of  20  percent  of  the   registered  voters.  In  the  case  of   Brandon  that  is  more  than  either   the  pros  or  cons  in  the  original   vote.  It  also  requires  that  those   signatures  be  submitted  within  30   days  ...  a  relatively  small  window  

in  a  small  town. For  me  personally,  I  feel  that   there  were  several  unanswered   questions  that  confused  the  vote   and  therefore  may  have  affected  its   outcome.  I  like  to  go  to  the  source   when  I  have  questions  about  things   and  so  my  two  questions  on  the   town  budget  were  taken  to  people   who  were  in  positions  to  know  the   answers. 0\¿UVWTXHVWLRQZDVZLWK regards  to  the  new  grader  for  the   highway  department.  I  asked  was   it  to  replace  the  current  grader.  I   received  two  answers:  One  said  yes   it  was  a  replacement.  The  second   said  no  it  was  to  be  in  addition  to   the  current  equipment  because  the   one  grader  was  not  enough  for  all   the  roads.  Which  was  correct? My  second  question  was  with   regards  to  the  recreation  director   position.  I  asked  was  this  to  be  the   elimination  of  the  two  part-­time   positions  into  one  full-­time  posi-­ tion.  Again  I  received  two  answers:  

Letter (Continued  from  Page  4A) â&#x20AC;&#x153;private  property  ought  to  be  sub-­ servient  to  public  use,â&#x20AC;?  while  at  the   same  time  providing  compensation   to  people  whose  property  rights  are   affected  by  public  policy. That  is  a  misleading  state-­ ment  taken  out  of  context,  and  it   troubles  me  to  know  an  elected   RIÂżFLDOZRXOGXVHVXFKWDFWLFVWR SURPRWHDQGLQĂ&#x20AC;XHQFHWKHRXWFRPH of  an  issue  with  such  far  reaching   consequences.  What  Article  2  of  the   Vermont  State  Constitution  actually   says  is  this:  That  private  property   ought  to  be  subservient  to  public   uses  when  necessity  requires  it,  

One  said  yes  it  was  the  elimination   of  both  part-­time  positions  into  one   full-­time  position.  The  second  an-­ swer  was  that  one  part-­time  position   would  become  a  full-­time  position   and  the  second  part-­time  position   would  remain.  Which  was  correct? I  was  confused  enough  that  I   could  not  support  the  budget  as   presented.   Then  right  after  the  vote  and   before  the  petitions  were  circulated   and  submitted  for  the  reconsid-­ eration  our  town  manager  of  nine   years  resigned.  So  that  added  a  new   concern  for  me  ...  will  the  town   PDQDJHUœVVDODU\DQGEHQH¿WVSDFN-­ age  be  the  same  for  the  new  town   manager  as  was  in  the  proposed   budget? My  hope  is  that  these  questions   and  those  that  others  may  have  will   be  answered  by  the  selectboard   prior  to  the  April  30  Reconsidera-­ tion  vote. Richard  White Brandon

Real  Estate   and  You nevertheless,  whenever  any  personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   property  is  taken  for  the  use  of  the   public,  the  owner  ought  to  receive   an  equivalent  in  money. What  Sen.  Bray  is  suggesting  is   the  eminent  domain  clause  of  the   state  constitution.  The  mere  thought   of  the  state  taking  250  feet  of  land   around  every  water  body  in  the  state   sends  shivers  up  my  spine,  but  that   is  exactly  what  the  senator  suggests   with  his  comment,  and  is  one  of  the   many  reasons  this  bill  should  be   shredded  and  sent  out  with  the  daily   garbage.

Addison  County  Readers  received   a   donation   of   $250,   with   Margo   Grace  present  to  explain  the  program   and   the   efforts   made   to   get   books   into  the  hands  of  all  Addison  County   children   under   the   age   of   5.   This   program   is   a   part   of   Dolly   Partonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Imagination   Library   with   an   annual   cost   of   about   $30   per   child.   Their   goal  is  85  percent,  but  they  were  only   at   38   percent   in   2012.   More   help   is   needed  to  be  sure  the  goal  is  met. The   club   recently   presented   a   check   to   the   Special   Olympics   Addison  County  program  for  $750  to   assist   students   from   the   Vergennes-­ Bristol   area.   Jim   Wacker,   program   director,   was   present   to   receive   the   check.

served  by  their  association.  President   Kitty  Oxholm  presented  a  check  for   $500  to  assist  their  efforts. Oxholm  also  presented  a  check  for   $1,000   to   Bixby   Memorial   Library   Director   Jane   Spencer   recently,   and   Spencer   thanked   the   club   for   its   continued   support.   She   mentioned   that   a   number   of   Vergennes   Lions   serve   of   the   library   board   of   direc-­ tors,   and   that   other   Lions   help   the   library  in  numerous  ways.   At   the   April   17   meeting   of   the   club,  Robert  Thorn  of  the  Counseling   Service   of   Addison   County   spoke   about   the   numerous   programs   that   his   agency   is   involved   with   and   how   all   of   the   county   schools   have   school-­based   clinicians   working   with   students.   With   the   closing   of   institutions  over  the  past  20  years,  he   said,   there   has   been   more   pressure   on   agencies   such   as   the   counseling   service   to   meet   those   needs   keep-­ ing   the   clients   in   the   community.   Following   Thornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   talk,   Oxholm   presented  him  with  a  check  for  $300. The   club   has   just   started   selling   WLFNHWV IRU LWV DQQXDO FDU UDIĂ&#x20AC;H DQG are  making  plans  for  Memorial  Day   to   earn   more   funds   for   the   commu-­ nities   served.   Tickets   are   available   from  any  Vergennes  Lions  member.

But   it   seems   to   me   that   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   better   this   way,   even   if   it   makes   people  uncomfortable.  I  think  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   OK   to   say   (if   maybe   not   always   out   loud):   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   wrong.   It   wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   go   back   to   normal.â&#x20AC;?   For   when  I  think  or  say  that,  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  not   â&#x20AC;&#x153;refusing  to  move  onâ&#x20AC;?  or  â&#x20AC;&#x153;giving   inâ&#x20AC;?   to   grief;Íž   rather,   I   am   giving   in   to   love.   I   am   saying   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   with-­ out   being   shy   about   it   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   that   it   is   possible   to   love   a   city,   to   love   a   holiday,   to   love   a   race,   to   love   the  people  of  Boston  and  to  love   those   who   come   to   visit.   Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Â&#x152; ,-;;-:<;,:163;Â&#x152; Â&#x152; 8=*.):-Â&#x152; Â&#x152; ENTRĂ&#x2030;E;Â&#x152; Â&#x152; )88-<1B-:;Â&#x152; not   closure.   Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   opening.  And   thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  how  I  want  to  live.

Now  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   time   for   the   healing   to   begin.   Our   community   needs   closure.  Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  make  things  get  back   to   normal.   Today,   we   will   start   moving  on. After  every  tragedy  in  a  commu-­ nity   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   especially   those   that   gain   media   attention   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   we   hear   these   stock  phrases.  They  are  well-­mean-­ ing   and   they   speak   to   our   natural   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  sometimes  desperate  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  hunger   for  order  in  the  midst  of  chaos.  But,   to  me,  they  feel  so  wrong.   Sept.   11,   2001.   Tropical   Storm   Irene.   Hurricane   Sandy.   Mass   shootings   in   Aurora,   Colo.,   and   Newtown,  Conn.  Do  these  wounds   ever  heal?  Do  things  ever  get  back   to   normal?   What   does   â&#x20AC;&#x153;closureâ&#x20AC;?   mean  or  look  like  for  these  partic-­ ular   people,   in   these   particular   places?   I  suppose  we  do  move  on.  Time

Migrant  workers (Continued  from  Page  1A) will   sign   S.38   into   law   if   it   reaches   his  desk.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   came   to   the   House   with   such   overwhelming  support,â&#x20AC;?  said  Lanpher,   whose   committee   drafted   the   initial   version  of  the  bill.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;If  thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  time  be-­ fore  the  end  of  the  session  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  of   course,  no  guarantees  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  I  do  believe   that   we   want   to   see   it   through   to   the   ÂżQLVK´ Opponents   have   argued,   among   other   things,   that   driving   is   a   privi-­ lege  that  should  not  be  granted  to  un-­ documented  workers  who  entered  the   country   illegally;Íž   that   South   Ameri-­ can  drug  cartels  could  take  advantage   of   the   program   and   increase   crime   in   the   state   (a   theory   that   has   been   roundly   debunked   by   lawmakers);Íž   and   that   granting   migrant   workers   driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  licenses  would  result  in  farm-­ ers  losing  some  laborers  because  they   could  leave  farms  to  seek  higher  pay-­ ing  jobs  elsewhere. Last   Thursday,   the   House   heard   testimony   from  Addison   and   Frank-­ lin   county   migrant   workers,   farmers   and  clergy  in  support  of  the  bill.  In  an   interview   immediately   following   the   hearings,   Lanpher   characterized   the   testimonies  as  â&#x20AC;&#x153;very  powerful.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within   our   whole   state   we   have   communities   in   the   corners   and   in   the   shadows,â&#x20AC;?   she   said.   She   added   that  Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  rural  landscape  made   workers   especially   isolated,   with   many   going   months   or   even   years   without  leaving,  unable  to  visit  friends   or  attend  to  their  daily  needs  like  buy-­ ing   groceries   or   visiting   friends   and   family  working  at  nearby  farms.   But   few   seem   to   dispute   that   mi-­ grant   worker   are   central   to   the   sur-­ vival  of  the  struggling  dairy  industry.

Budget  to  revote  budget  on  Tuesday BRANDON  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Now  that  petition-­ ers   have   triggered   a   re-­vote   on   the   Brandon  town  budget  after  it  passed   on   Town   Meeting   Day   by   eight   votes,   the   stage   is   set   for   voters   to   ask  their  long-­awaited  questions. An   informational   meeting   about   the   budget   will   be   held   at   the   Ne-­ shobe  School  on  Monday,  April  29,   at   7   p.m.   The   Brandon   selectboard   will  take  budget  questions  from  vot-­ ers.  The   meeting   will   be   moderated   by  Bernie  Carr.

The  re-­vote   on   the   town   budget   will   take   place   the   next   day,   Tues-­ day,  April   30.   Polls   will   be   open   at   the   Neshobe   School   from   7   a.m.-­   7   p.m.   Brandon   residents   who   cannot   vote   in   person   on  April   30   can   ob-­ tain  an  absentee  ballot  at  the  tempo-­ UDU\WRZQRI¿FHVDWWKH%UDQGRQ)LUH Station   until   the   end   of   business   on   Monday,  April  29.   The   proposed   Brandon   municipal   budget,   which   represented   a   10.3   percent  spending  increase,  passed  by  

eight  votes   on   Town   Meeting   Day,   428-­420. The  $3,292,280  municipal  budget   ($2,480,080   to   be   raised   by   taxes)   would  result  in  a  seven-­cent  tax  hike   for  residents.  Up  roughly  $240,000,   it   includes   an   additional   full-­time   position  in  the  Public  Works  Depart-­ ment,   elevates   the   half-­time   recre-­ ation   director   position   to   full-­time   and   buys   a   new   loader   for   Public   Works.

WELCOME  CHANGE There  was  a  palpable  change  in  the   air  at  Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  selectboard  meeting,   which  was  well  attended  by  roughly   30  residents.  There  was  a  feeling  of   satisfaction   and   goodwill   that   has   been   missing   from   the   board,   not   just   since   Arlundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   resignation,   but   perhaps  since  before  Tropical  Storm   Irene  in  August  2011.  The  board  has   been  working  to  keep  a  multitude  of   projects  moving,  and  it  has  been  an   uphill  battle.  While  Baker  has  often   been   a   lone   dissenter   on   issues   be-­ fore  the  board,  Fuller  said  he  hoped   the   town   could   now   make   some   progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  express  our  deepest  gratitude   to   Richard   Baker   for   stepping   into   his   new   role   and   we   hope   we   can   all  move  forward,â&#x20AC;?  Fuller  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   always   talk   about   moving   forward.   +RSHIXOO\ ZH FDQ ÂżQG FRPPRQ ground  instead  of  controversy.â&#x20AC;? As  for  Baker,  it  was  noted  that  he  

would  now  have  to  ascribe  to  a  very   different   dynamic,   one   where   he   is   working  for  the  board  rather  than  sit-­ ting  on  it. Âł,WKLQNLWVÂżQHEHFDXVHLWÂśVDOORQH table,â&#x20AC;?  he  said  in  an  interview  Mon-­ day.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  just  on  the  other  side.â&#x20AC;? Baker   said   that   a   â&#x20AC;&#x153;team   effortâ&#x20AC;?   mentality   extends   to   the   board,   and   he   is   looking   forward   to   spending   more  time  with  Fuller  and  the  board   members  than  Arlund  did.  He  plans   to   communicate   more   with   staff   members  and  hold  regular  meetings   in  an  effort  to  improve  staff  morale. Baker   said   he   is   just   writing   ev-­ erything   down   and   is   working   with   )XOOHURQDĂ&#x20AC;RZFKDUWLQDQHIIRUWWR organize  and  keep  track  of  the  prog-­ ress  on  town  projects.   In   the   meantime,   Brandon   resi-­ GHQWV LQWHUHVWHG LQ ÂżOOLQJ %DNHUÂśV vacant  seat  on  the  selectboard  should   send  a  letter  of  interest  to  the  board   to   Brandon   Selectboard,   49   Center   St.,  Brandon,  VT  05733  or  e-­mail  to   essmith@sover.net.

Brandon (Continued  from  Page  1A) the  U.S.  Navy. The  move  comes  one  month  after   former  Town  Manager  Keith  Arlund   suddenly  resigned  after  nine  years  on   the  job  to  take  a  position  in  the  pri-­ vate   sector.  Arlund   gave   two   weeks   notice  and  left  the  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  employ  on   March  22.  The  board  has  been  work-­ ing  with  the  Vermont  League  of  Cit-­ ies  and  Towns  to  not  only  advertise   for   a   permanent   replacement,   but   DOVR ÂżQG DQ LQWHULP WRZQ PDQDJHU to  keep  the  town  operating  while  the   months-­long   search   proceeds.   In   a   town  with  a  town  manager  and  a  se-­ lectboard,   signing   contracts,   payroll   and  purchase  orders  is  the  town  man-­ agerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  responsibility. Brandon  Police  Chief  Chris  Brick-­ ell   has   been   serving   as   the   interim   town   manager   since  Arlund   left   the   post.  At   the   beginning   of   Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   regular   selectboard   meeting,   Fuller   made  a  point  of  thanking  Brickell  for   his  service. Âł7KH ERDUG ZRXOG ÂżUVW OLNH WR express   its   deep   gratitude   to   Chief   Brickell   for   stepping   in   as   interim   town   manager,â&#x20AC;?   Fuller   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   promised  the  chief  it  would  only  be   for  a  few  weeks,  and  we  felt  it  was   important   to   have   him   resume   his   duties  as  police  chief.  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d  rather  have   him  chasing  heroin  dealers  than  run-­ ning  the  town.â&#x20AC;? Arlundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  resignation  came  at  a  cru-­ cial  time  for  Brandon  with  a  host  of   complex  projects  looming,  including   a   water   line   project   set   to   start   this   summer   and   the   long-­awaited   Seg-­ ment   6   upgrade   of   Route   7   through   the  downtown.  There  is  also  the  re-­ pair  of  Bridge  114  in  the  downtown,   D SURSRVHG RYHUĂ&#x20AC;RZ E\SDVV IRU WKH 1HVKREH 5LYHU DQG Ă&#x20AC;RRG UHSDLU LQ two   downtown   parks   and   Briggs   Lane.  Selectboard  members  believed   Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   institutional   knowledge   of   Brandon   and   the   slew   of   upcoming   infrastructural   projects   makes   him   a  good  choice  for  the  job  of  interim   town  manager. Fuller   said   Baker   will   be   paid   $1,000  a  week.   At  Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  meeting,  Fuller  said   after   two   candidates   for   the   interim   town   manager   job   pulled   out   at   the   last   minute   on   separate   occasions.   The  board  knew  that  one  of  the  can-­ didates  would  have  to  resign  another   job  and  take  the  town  job,  he  said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If   youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   honest   with   yourself,   you  know  that  Richard  Baker  is  the   best  person  for  the  job,â&#x20AC;?  Fuller  said.

Expansion (Continued  from  Page  1A) hours  from  Ohio  to  Middlebury  just  to   see  where  the  product  is  made  and  to   buy  a  few  cases. Plans  call  for  VHC  to  keep  operat-­ ing   its   Pond   Lane   facility   even   when   the  new  headquarters  opens.  This  will   allow  the  company  to  continue  manu-­ facturing  cider  while  the  new  facility  is   being  built  and  will  ensure  additional   production  capacity  to  satisfy  the  still   growing   demand   for   the   Woodchuck   brand.  Williams  also  fully  anticipates,   in   the   not-­too-­distant   future,   having   to  build  an  addition  onto  the  new  Ex-­ change   Street   headquarters.   He   esti-­ mates  an  additional  15  to  20  workers   will  be  needed  once  the  new  facility  is   opened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   full   steam   ahead,â&#x20AC;?   he   said   of   the  project.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  are  on  pace  to  get  it   HQFORVHG EHIRUH WKH VQRZ Ă&#x20AC;LHV QH[W winter).   We   need   the   new   bottling   equipment  to  be  on-­line  to  handle  the   summer  demand  next  year.â&#x20AC;? Williams   explains   that   demand   builds  in  the  spring  and  hits  a  crescen-­ do  during  the  hot  summer  months.

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

The  company   is   now   doing   a   lot   PRUHWKDQVLPSO\VXUYLYLQJLWLVĂ&#x20AC;RXU-­ ishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  have  tried  to  get  better  all  the   time,â&#x20AC;?   he   said   of   the   VHC   corporate   mentality.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;A  byproduct  of  that  is  that   we  got  bigger.â&#x20AC;? A  formal  groundbreaking  ceremony  

at  the   building   site,   located   between   the   Bridge   School   and   Maple   Land-­ mark,   is   being   targeted   for  Thursday,   May  9.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  has  been  an  amazing  ride,  and   the  best  is  yet  to  come,â&#x20AC;?  Williams  said.

In   the   meantime,   local   superinten-­ dents   are   cautiously   evaluating   Cal-­ HQGDU7KH\VDLGWKHUHDUHQRÂżUP plans   at   this   point   to   implement   it   in   Addison   County,   though   local   school   communities  will  get  a  chance  to  hear   about  it  and  weigh  in  on  it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   predict   we   will   take   a   wait-­and-­ see  approach  with  this,â&#x20AC;?  Addison  Cen-­ tral  Supervisory  Union  Superintendent   Gail   Conley   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   impetus   for   this  is  coming  from  Chittenden  Coun-­ ty.  There  are  a  lot  of  complications  that   need  to  be  resolved.â&#x20AC;? Conley   will   retire   on   June   30   and   will  be  succeeded  by  newly  hired  Su-­ perintendent  Peter  L.  Burrows.  Conley   said  he  believes  Calendar  2.0  has  many   academic   merits,   but   acknowledged   that  its  implementation  would  require   a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;serious  period  of  adjustment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To  be  successful,  it  would  require  a   buy-­in  from  parents,  teachers  and  the   communities  at  large,â&#x20AC;?  he  said. Addison   Northeast   Superintendent   David  Adams  said  there  are  no  imme-­ diate  plans  to  put  Calendar  2.0  in  place   in  the  Bristol-­area  schools,  though  he  

called  it   an   â&#x20AC;&#x153;exciting   proposalâ&#x20AC;?   that   could  provide  some  new  opportunities   for  students  and  teacher  training. Âł &DOHQGDU   LV D ZD\ WR EHJLQ this   conversation   to   provide   a   new   structure  of  learning  for  our  students,â&#x20AC;?   Adams   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;This   is   a   very   exciting   time  for  us  to  be  talking  about  this.â&#x20AC;? AGRARIAN  CYCLES Many  Addison   County   schools   are   WLHGLQWRDQDJUDULDQFDOHQGDURIÂżFLDOV noted.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  calendar  that  has  histori-­ cally  ensured  that  young  people  were   available   to   help   out   at   farms   or   at   home  at  key  harvest  times. Addison   Northwest   Superintendent   Tom   Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien   said   Vergennes-­area   schools  have  made  no  decision  on  Cal-­ HQGDUKHQRWHG$1Z68RIÂżFLDOV have   been   adjusting   school   days   in   other  ways,  such  as  extending,  maxi-­ PL]LQJDQGPDNLQJPRUHĂ&#x20AC;H[LEOHWKH amount  of  time  that  students  spend  in   the  classroom. He  anticipated  school  directors  will   take  a  look  at  the  Calendar  2.0  propos-­ al.   Like   Conley   and  Adams,   Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien   anticipates  that  local  parents  in  partic-­ ular  will  raise  concerns  about  how  the   new  calendar  would  affect  their  work   and  vacation  schedules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  requires  managing,â&#x20AC;?  he  said. Schools  that  adopt  the  new  calendar  

would  have  to  coordinate  with  their  lo-­ cal  vocational-­technical  center. Teachers,  meanwhile,  have  thus  far   heard  little  about  Calendar  2.0. Lisa  Beck  is  chief  negotiator  for  the   Addison   Central   Education   Associa-­ tion,  which  represents  teachers  in  the   elementary  schools  of  Bridport,  Corn-­ wall,  Ripton,  Salisbury,  Shoreham  and   Weybridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teachers  here  have  not  been  a  part   of  any  of  the  conversations  and  have   not   had   an   opportunity   to   talk   about   &DOHQGDU ´%HFNVDLG Speaking  as  an  individual,  Beck  said   she   is   concerned   about   the   potential   impacts  on  families  and  continuity  in   the   classroom,   which   she   fears   could   be  disrupted  by  newly  created  sched-­ ule  breaks.  She  also  wonders  if  orga-­ QL]HUV ZLOO LQGHHG EH DEOH WR ÂżQG WKH necessary  funding  to  pay  for  the  plan. But   Pinckney   believes   the   pros   of   the  new  calendar  outweigh  the  cons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   main   thing   is,   the   calendar   supports   student   learning,â&#x20AC;?   Pinckney   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   provides   lots   of   opportuni-­ ties  for  interventions  for  kids  and  op-­ portunities  for  embedded  professional   development  for  teachers.  It  provides   opportunities   for   kids   to   do   applied   learning   and   expand   individualized   choices  that  they  might  have.â&#x20AC;?
