Pastor and church see success in long tenure Victory Baptist grows, diversifies in 25 years By  ANDY  KIRKALDY WALTHAM   —   One   key   reason   for  the  dramatic  growth  of  Waltham’s   Victory  Baptist  Church  was  probably   already   in   place   when   Pastor   Tim   Taylor   and   his   wife,   Sandy,   arrived   in  1988. A   few   years   before,   the   members   of  the  19-­year-­old  church  had  bought   an  antique  shop  and  several  acres  on   top  of  Woodman  Hill,  right  on  Route   7. Services   at   the   former   shop   were   drawing   about   30   to   a   church   that   was  founded  in  1969  and  earlier  had   gathered   in   the   Bixby   Library,   the   Weeks   School   chapel   and   in   Ferris-­ burgh’s   Union   Meeting   Hall   before   buying  its  new  home.

One  city  project  ends;Íž  more  set Monkton  Road  job  wrapping;Íž  police  station,  solar  array  next By  ANDY  KIRKALDY VERGENNES  —  Work  on  the  new   $1.55   million   Vergennes   police   sta-­ tion  should  begin  in  about  two  weeks,   with  another  project,  a  new  solar  array   at  and  near  the  city’s  sewer  treatment   plant,  soon  to  follow,  according  to  City   Manager  Mel  Hawley.   Meanwhile,  ongoing  work  to  solve  a   persistent  drainage  problem  on  Monk-­ ton   Road   should   wrap   up   this   week,   Hawley  said. That  project,  not  far  from  the  west   entrance   to   Vergennes   Union   High   6FKRRO LV Âż[LQJ D SUREOHP WKDW ZDV unmasked   by   an   engineering   study:   One  side  of  the  culvert  is  fed  by  a  24-­ inch  pipe,  and  the  outlet  is  an  18-­inch   pipe.   If   it   rains   hard   enough   and   long   enough,  Hawley  said,  the  road’s  drain-­ age  system  backs  up,  causing  problems   for  several  area  homeowners  as  well  as   Ă€RRGLQJ0RQNWRQ5RDGÂśVVXUIDFH “In   certain   circumstances,   the   18-­ inch  pipe  can’t  handle  it,â€?  he  said. In  the  big  picture,  the  drainage  prob-­ lem  had  to  be  solved  before  the  road   can  be  paved,  possibly  next  year,  Haw-­ ley  said.   In   the   short   term,   he   said,   another   deadline  appears  as  if  it  will  be  met.   “We’ve   got   to   get   it   done   before   school  starts,  too,â€?  Hawley  said. Not   long   after   school   is   in   ses-­ sion,  ground  should  be  broken  on  the   4,611-­square-­foot   police   station   on   a   North   Main   Street   lot   that   was   the   home  of  Vergennes  Auto  Sales.  Haw-­ ley  said  general  contractor  Bread  Loaf   Corp.   would   be   setting   up   temporary   headquarters  there  soon.   “We’ll  tear  that  building  down  right   after   Labor   Day,â€?   Hawley   said.   He   expects   construction   will   start   soon   thereafter. On  Aug.  13  aldermen  met  to  sign  the   $1.45  million  bond  that  will  fund  the   bulk  of  the  station’s  cost,  after  the  city   got   what   Hawley   called   “a   favorable   interest   rateâ€?   of   about   3.44   percent   from   the   Merchants   Bank.  Aldermen   plan  to  take  $100,000  out  of  the  city’s   Tower  Fund  to  fund  the  remaining  ex-­ pense.   Hawley  said  the  station’s  mechani-­ cal   systems   bids   have   already   been   received,  and  other  bids  are  expected   to  arrive  this  week  —  meaning  there  is   some  suspense.   “I   hope   when   we   see   the   total   that   we’re  on  budget,â€?  he  said.   The  new  station  will  include  on  its   secure   “operationsâ€?   side   a   sally   port,   into   which   a   cruiser   can   drive   and   unload   suspects   for   questioning   and/ or   detention;Íž   two   holding   cells;Íž   two   interview   rooms;Íž   a   booking   room;Íž   a   juvenile   holding   room;Íž   and   evidence   storage.  The  sally  port  can  also  be  used   to  store  a  car  being  held  as  evidence. The  administration  area  will  include   a  lobby,  a  patrol  room  with  work  space   for  a  detective  and  sergeant,  men’s  and   women’s   locker   rooms,   a   multi-­pur-­ pose  room  that  will  be  used  for  train-­ LQJDQGDVDEUHDNURRPDQRIÂżFHIRU

the  chief,  a  witness  interview  room,  a   technology  room,  and  several  storage   rooms,  including  one  for  required  re-­ cords  and  another  for  weapons. Hawley  this  spring  estimated  the  tax   impact  in  the  most  costly  year  of  a  20-­ year  bond  would  be  $59  per  $100,000   RI DVVHVVHG YDOXH D ÂżJXUH KH VDLG would   gradually   decline   to   around   $42.  That  estimate  includes  money  for   building  maintenance  as  well  as  bond   payments. SOLAR  ARRAY The   timetable   for   a   solar   array   in   and  near  the  sewer  plant  is  less  certain;Íž   Hawley  said  that  he  planned  to  meet   with   project   coordinator   Encore   Re-­ development  sometime  next    week  to   pin  down  a  schedule  for  an  installation   that  will  be  free  to  the  city.   What   has   been   established   is   that   the   array   will   produce   up   to   149.9   kilowatts  per  hour  and  about  200,000   kilowatt   hours   per   year.   That   power   will   not   go   directly   to   the   treatment   plant,   but   instead   will   be   measured   as  it  goes  into  the  electric  grid,  and  its   value  will  offset  the  city’s  power  costs.    “At  the  end  of  the  day,  at  the  end  of  

the  year,  it  will  be  $4,120  in  credit  on   our  power  bill,â€?  Hawley  said. So   far,   the   project   has   earned   its   &HUWLÂżFDWH RI 3XEOLF *RRG IURP WKH Public   Service   Board,   back   on   July   18,  and  on  July  31  Hawley  on  behalf   RIWKHFLW\VLJQHGWKHÂżQDQFLDODJUHH-­ ment   with   project   underwriter   Green   Lantern  Capital.    The  array  will  total  about  an  acre  of   solar  panels,  Hawley  said,  about  half   of   which   will   be   placed   on   the   treat-­ ment   plant   lawn   and   half   on   a   knoll   north  of  the  nearby  Vergennes-­Panton   :DWHU'LVWULFWRIÂżFH The   arrays   will   not   be   as   large   as   others  in  the  area.   “It’s  not  like  the  one  out  on  Route   7,â€?  Hawley  said.   Both   sites   are   ideal,   Hawley   said,   because   they   already   offer   required   three-­phase  power  and  fencing.   Ideally,   Hawley   said,   the   arrays   would   already   be   in   place,   but   there   was  a  paperwork  delay  when  the  city’s   name  was  substituted  for  Encore’s  be-­ fore  the  Public  Service  Board.   “The  sun  is  out,â€?  he  said.  “I  wish  it   was  up  today.â€?

A  Titanic  collision  looms; carbon  tax  on  the  docket Climate  change  was  back  in  the  news  this  week  as  an  international   panel  of  scientists  released  a  report  that  found  —  with  95  percent  cer-­ tainty  —  that  human  activity  is  the  cause  of  most  of  the  temperature   increases  of  recent  decades.  More  importantly,  it  warns  that  sea  levels   could  potentially  rise  by  more  than  three  feet  by  the  end  of  the  century   if  carbon  emissions  continue  to  accellerate.  Storms,  as  demonstrated   LQUHFHQW\HDUVDUHSUHGLFWHGWREHPRUHÂżHUFHDQGPRUHIUHTXHQW 7KH UHSRUW WKH ÂżIWK RI WKH ,QWHUJRYHUQPHQWDO 3DQHO RQ &OLPDWH &KDQJHVLQFHLWZDVIRXQGHGLQLVVLJQLÂżFDQWEHFDXVHLWSXWVWR rest  claims  of  skeptics  that  human  activity  has  little  bearing  on  climate   FKDQJH7KHJURXSÂśVVXPPDULHVZKLFKDUHSXEOLVKHGHYHU\ÂżYHRUVL[ \HDUVDUHXVHGE\QDWLRQVDURXQGWKHZRUOGDVÂłWKHGHÂżQLWLYHDVVHVV-­ ment  of  the  risks  of  climate  change,â€?  according  to  a  recent  report  in   the  New  York  Times. Of  particular  concern  is  a  new  estimate  that  temperatures  could  in-­ crease  from  a  low  of  2.7  degrees  Fahrenheit  to  above  5  degrees,  with   a  higher  probability  of  seeing  more  than  a  5-­degree  increase  if  carbon   dioxide  levels  double  by  the  end  of  the  century.  The  study  reported   that  the  levels  of  carbon  dioxide  in  the  atmosphere  have  increased  by   41  percent  since  the  Industrial  Revolution  (start  of  the  20th  century).   Scientists  said  temperatures  would  likely  increase  more  at  the  poles,   possibly  as  much  as  10  degrees  F,  leading  to  widespread  melting  of   land  ice  and  extreme  heat  waves. If,  on  the  other  hand,  countries  were  successful  in  limiting  the  in-­ crease  of  carbon  dioxide  to  the  most  optimistic  levels,  increases  in  the   rise  of  sea  levels  could  be  held  to  as  little  as  10  inches,  just  two  inches   more  than  was  seen  in  the  past  century.

Low  voter  turnout  foreseen  in  2014 The   November   2014   General   Election   in   Vermont   could  turn  out  to  be  the  election  with  the  lowest  turnout   in  several  decades. The   Vermont   Secretary   of   State’s   Web   site   provides   data   on   registered   voters   and   turnout   for   all   elections   since  1974.  The  average  turnout  in  Vermont  for   the  10   presidential   elections   from   1976   through   2012   was   70   percent  of  the  registered  voters.  Vermont  has  consistently   had  one  of  the  highest  turnout  rates  in  the  nation  in  presi-­ dential  elections.  In  part,  this  is  because  of  the  strongly   civic-­minded  culture  of  the  state.   High   turnout   is   also   due   to   some   laws  changing  Vermont’s  voting  pro-­ cesses   that   have   been   enacted   in   re-­ cent   years.   The   registration   deadline   is  now  not  until  the  week  before  the   election.  Any  voter  may  cast  an  early   or   absentee   ballot.   In   2012,   25   per-­ cent   of   all   ballots   were   early   or   ab-­ sentee  votes. By  Eric  L.  Davis As   is   the   case   nationally,   turnout   in   Vermont   in   off-­year   elections   is   considerably  below  the  level  of  pres-­ idential   years.   The   average   turnout   in   the   10   off-­year   Vermont  elections  from  1974  through  2010  was  56  per-­ cent  of  the  registered  voters.  This  number  is  consistent   with   national   trends,   where   off-­year   turnout   generally   runs  about  15  points  below  that  in  presidential  years. However,  there  is  one  exception  to  this  general  trend:   the  off-­year  election  of  1978,  when  turnout  in  Vermont   was  only  45   percent,  the   lowest   in  40   years.  With   the   exception  of  1978,  the  turnout  in  every  other  off-­year   election  since  1974  ranged  between  54  and  62  percent.   There   are   several   parallels   between   1978   and   2014,  

Politically Thinking

which  could  mean  next  year  will  be  a  low-­turnout  elec-­ tion  as  well.  Once  every  six  years,  neither  of  Vermont’s   two  U.S.  Senate  seats  is  up  for  election.    Once  every  12   years,  the  election  without  a  Senate  race  coincides  with   a  non-­presidential  year.   Just   as   presidential   election   years   have   higher   turn-­ outs   than   off-­years,   elections   in   which   a   U.S.   Senate   seat  is  on  the  ballot  have  higher  turnouts.  In  Vermont,   U.S.   Senate   candidates,   especially   incumbents,   spend   more   money   than   any   other   state-­based   candidates.   Additionally,   the   two   current   senators,   Patrick   Leahy   and   Bernie   Sanders,   have   what   are   probably   the   strongest   and   deepest   political   organizations   in   the   state.   These   organizations   work   hard   to   bring  their  supporters  to  the  polls  in   years  in  which  Leahy’s  and  Sanders’   names  are  on  the  ballot. The   two   most   recent   years   in   which   there   was   no   presidential   election  and  no  U.S.  Senate  election   in   Vermont   were   2002   and   1990.   However,   turnout   did   not   markedly   decline  in  those  years  from  the  typical  off-­year  level.  In   both   of   those   years,   there   were   competitive   open-­seat   gubernatorial  elections.   ,QWKHJRYHUQRUVKLSZDVRSHQIRUWKH¿UVWWLPH LQ\HDUV5HSXEOLFDQ-LP'RXJODVHQGHGXS¿QLVKLQJ ¿UVW LQ D YHU\ FORVH WKUHHZD\ UDFH DJDLQVW 'HPRFUDW Doug   Racine   and   Independent   Con   Hogan.   In   1990,   former  Republican  governor  Dick  Snelling  attempted  a   FRPHEDFNDIWHUVL[\HDUVRXWRIRI¿FH6QHOOLQJZRQD ¿IWKQRQFRQVHFXWLYHWHUPE\DVL[SRLQWPDUJLQRYHU (See  Davis,  Page  5A)

Please  do  not  try  to  tell  me  that   the  Public  Service  Board  represents   the  citizens.  If  not  for  groups  like   CLF,  only  business  would  have  a   say.  Citizens  usually  do  not  want   the  same  outcomes  as  businesses,   especially  businesses  that  are  not   situated  in  their  state,  such  as   International  Paper.  (Should  the  gas   project  be  introduced  in  New  York,   not  Vermont?  Did  I  hear  correctly   that  New  York  refuses  to  run  new   gas  lines?)  Citizens  do  not  want  to   see  their  property  devalued  for  proj-­ ects  that  create  more  environmental   problems  than  they  solve.  Citizens   are  wise  enough  to  know  when  they   are  being  duped,  like  when  natural   gas  prices  rise  shortly  after  project   completion.

Pipeline  to  affect   global  warming “Another  letter  to  the  editor  about   the  pipeline?â€?  you  ask.  Haven’t  we   heard  enough? Perhaps.  But  rather  than  presenting   another  NIMBY  editorial,  we  would   like  to  discuss  this  issue  in  a  broader   context.  That  is,  how  building  the  Ver-­ mont  Gas  pipeline  would  contribute   to  one  of  the  biggest  threats  facing  the   future  of  mankind  —  that  is,  runaway   global  warming.   Almost  daily,  the  evening  news   features  a  story  about  a  severe   ZHDWKHUHYHQWGURXJKWVDQGZLOGÂżUHV in  California,  Arizona  and  Colorado,   Ă€RRGLQJLQWKH0LGZHVWWRUQDGRHV larger  than  have  ever  been  seen   before,  melting  polar  ice  caps  and   severe  hurricanes  (remember  Katrina,   Sandy  and  Irene?)  And  now,  there  are   newspaper  articles  suggesting  that  we   shift  our  emphasis  away  from  dealing   with  CO2  emissions  and  the  preven-­ tion  of  climate  change  to  adaptation  to   the  inevitable  changes  that  will  result,   such  as  rising  sea  levels.  The  point  is,   climate  change  (call  it  global  warm-­ ing,  if  you  will)  is  not  something  that   PD\KDSSHQLQWKHGLVWDQWIXWXUHLWLV already  here  NOW.   It  is  true  that  no  single  weather   event  can  be  blamed  on  global  warm-­ ing  alone.  And  no  one  would  suggest   that  Vermont  Gas  Systems’  proposal   to  build  a  natural  gas  pipeline  to  de-­ liver  methane  to  communities  in  Ver-­ mont  and  ultimately  IP  and  beyond   will  “push  the  world  over  the  edge.â€?   %XWEXLOGLQJVLJQLÂżFDQWDGGLWLRQDOLQ-­ frastructure  in  Vermont  to  promote  the   use  of  fossil  fuels  primarily  in  New   York  would  be  questionable  judg-­ ment  at  best  and  at  worst,  a  triumph   (See  Letter,  Page  5A)

Letters to the Editor

Letter

Figuring  pipeline  impact  requires  nuanced  calculation I’m  writing  to  folks  that  some-­ times  change  their  minds  when   learning  new  information.  I  include   myself  in  that  category. A  recent  example  of  changing  my   mind  was  in  regards  to  natural  gas   and  climate  change.  I  had  believed   for  a  long  time  that  natural  gas   contributed  less  to  the  climate  crisis   than  other  fossil  fuels  and  that  it   cost  less.  I’ve  changed  my  mind. The  information  that  convinced   me  to  change  my  mind  is  called  a   “life-­cycle  analysis.â€?  Rather  than   FRQÂżQHLWVHOIWRMXVWWKHXVH EXUQ-­ ing)  of  the  fuel,  (natural  gas  burns   “cleanerâ€?  in  several  ways,  including   more  than  a  50  percent  reduction   in  CO2  emissions),  a  life-­cycle   analysis  looks  at  greenhouse  gas   emissions  from  extraction  through   transmission  to  end  use. One  of  the  things  that  counts   against  natural  gas  in  this  kind  of   analysis  is  the  fact  that  methane  is  a  

more  than  20-­fold  stronger  green-­ house  gas  than  carbon  dioxide. It  turns  out  that  if  one  accounts   for  the  gas  that  unavoidably  escapes   from  the  well-­head  during  drilling   and  over  the  lifetime  of  the  well,   and  adds  in  the  leakage  in  the  trans-­ mission  system,  natural  gas  comes   out  worse  than  coal  or  oil.  This  is   why  a  couple  of  prominent  envi-­ ronmental  groups  (Environmental   Defense  Fund  and  Sierra  Club)  have   changed  their  minds  from  favoring   to  opposing  the  switch  to  natural  gas   for  electric  power  plants. I  am  of  the  general  opinion  that   we  are  coming  to  the  end  of  the  age   of  fossil  fuel  and  into  the  inevitable   contraction  that  follows.  Large   expenditures  in  fossil  fuel  infra-­ structure  are  not  in  the  public  good   or  our  best  interests  as  a  species.   Natural  gas,  realistically,  is  not  a   useful  “bridge  fuel�  to  renewables   and  only  delays  what  we  inevitably  

must  do  regarding  energy  to  run  our   society. I  am  therefore  against  the  Addi-­ son  Natural  Gas  Pipeline  Project.  In   addition,  I  also  don’t  believe  several   of  the  assumptions  made  in  promot-­ ing  this  project:  1.  Natural  gas  will   remain  at  its  current  price,  already   lower  than  the  cost  of  production;͞   2.  Fracking  technology  can  sup-­ ply  the  U.S.  with  many  years  of  an   abundant  natural  gas  supply  (may   be  only  10  years);͞  and  3.  Fracking   can  be  done  in  an  environmentally   friendly  (or  even  close  to  neutral)   manner. This  is  a  particularly  sticky  issue   as  the  facts  that  support  the  above   conclusions  are  much  harder  to   ¿QGWKDWWKHH[RUELWDQW DQGHDVLO\ countered  with  good  data)  picture   painted  by  industry,  politicians  and   the  mainline  media.

ists,  have   followed   their   father   and   uncle   into   the   business.   Elsie,   26,   began   that   journey   three   and   a   half   years   ago   when   she   joined   the   Es-­ sex   Reporter   and   Colchester   Sun,   now  heading  up  those  operations  as   the  managing  editor.  Polly,  29,  took   over  the  Mountain  Times  in  Killing-­ ton   and   Rutland   County   two   years   ago  with  her  partner,  Jason.  Christy,   28,   joined   the   Addison   Independent   in  sales  a  year  ago  and  now  is  sales   manager  and  assistant  publisher. Why,  the  New  York  Times  reporter   asked  them,  would  three  young  sis-­ ters  join  an  industry  in  decline?   Because   it’s   not,   they   responded.   The  community  newspaper  business   is   driven   by   challenge,   excitement   and  purpose.  With  the  digital  world   on  the  rise,  there  are  more  opportuni-­ ties  than  ever  before  to  reach  deeper   into   the   community   and   to   interact   with  residents  online,  through  video   and   audio,   and   print.   Similarly,   ad-­ vertising   vehicles   are   more   diverse   than   ever   and   multiple   avenues   can   be   tailored   to   each   customer.   Com-­ munity   newspapers   that   dominate   those   aspects   of   the   local   market   have  promising  futures. Wow.   That   was   news   to   the   na-­ tional   media   world.   Who   would   have  thought  that  the  big  daily  story   —   which   has   captured   national   at-­ tention  for  the  past  decade  —  would   be  so  different  than  the  thousands  of   community   newspapers   across   the   country? As  importantly,  the  world  of  jour-­ nalism   today   is   more   dynamic   than   ever,  while  also  being  in  greater  de-­ mand.  What  is  becoming  clear  is  that   a   well-­edited   source   of   news   that   holds   the   public   trust   is   desperately  

needed  to   stand   apart   from   the   sea   of   mediocrity   spewing   from   infor-­ mation   sources   (blogs,   community   forums,  and  many  other  outlets)  that   don’t  make  it  their  business  to  focus   on  facts.  What  we  also  know  is  that   a   plethora   of   news   outlooks   create   dysfunction   at  the   community,   state   and   national   level   because   so   many   people   are   operating   from   different   sets  of  fact.  A  common  core  of  infor-­ maton  is  needed.   What   we   know   in   media   is   this:   News   that   is   important   to   readers,   and   is   reported   accurately   and   fair-­ ly,   is   a   valuable   commodity.   That   requires   professional   editors   and   reporters   who   know   enough   back-­ JURXQGWRVKRUWIDFWIURP¿FWLRQDQG can  put  stories  in  context. What   we   need   to   understand   is   that  today’s  marketplace  is  no  longer   monolithic,   it’s   fractured.   Today’s   FKDOOHQJH LV WR HI¿FLHQWO\ SDFNDJH the   news   to   reach   that   diverse   mar-­ ketplace.   If   they   do   it   right,   community   newspapers   will   continue   to   hold   an   inherent   advantage   in   their   mar-­ kets   and   can   reach   their   audiences   in  print,  on  the  web,  through  mobile   and  other  digital  devices  —  making   them  stronger  than  ever  and  the  glue   that  binds  communities  together.   It   is,   as   my   daughters   said   in   the   New   York   Times   story,   an   exciting   time   to   be   in   journalism   and   in   the   newspaper   business.   That   doesn’t   mean  it’s  easy,  but  it  is  challenging,   entrepreneurial,   creative,   engaging   and  every  day  feels  as  if  you’re  giv-­ ing  back  to  your  community.   Now  that’s  a  business,  as  Jeff  and   Warren  must  also  be  thinking,  with  a   promising  future.

One  Middlebury  selectboard  mem-­ ber  cites  greater  economic  vitality  and   lower  emissions  as  reasons  for  the   board’s  support  of  the  pipeline.   Greater  Economic  Vitality.  The  lure   of  more  jobs  is  seductively  attractive,   but  needs  closer  scrutiny.  Gas  is  much   cheaper  now  than  it  was  10  years   ago,  and  the  price  will  go  back  up,   especially  as  the  U.S.  exports  more   gas  to  energy-­hungry  emerging  mar-­ NHWV$QGHYHQWKHVKRUWWHUPEHQHÂżW of  lower  gas  prices  ignores  the  ugly   truth  of  fossil  fuel  economics:  The   true  total  costs  of  extracting,  trans-­ porting,  processing  and  burning  fossil   fuels,  added  to  the  costs  of  dealing   with  pollution  and  climate  change,   are  much  higher  than  the  price  paid   at  the  pump.  Why?  Because  unlike   most  industries  and  businesses,  many   of  those  costs  are  not  borne  by  the   industry;Íž  they  are  externalized  and   passed  along  to  taxpayers  and  future   generations.  Middlebury  may  see  a   VKRUWWHUPEHQHÂżWIURPWHPSRUDULO\ cheaper  gas,  but  is  it  “doing  the  right   WKLQJ´WRUHDSWKDWEHQHÂżWDWWKHH[-­ pense  of  others  who  will  pay  the  true   costs  down  the  road? Lower  Emissions.  It  may  be  true   that  methane  burns  cleaner  than  coal   and  fuel  oil  at  the  exhaust  pipe,  but   what  Vermont  Gas  doesn’t  tell  you  is   that  in  its  life  cycle  from  extraction   to  burn,  fracked  methane  is  at  least  as   dirty  (in  terms  of  greenhouse  gases   and  other  chemicals  added,  such  as   mercaptan)  as  other  fuels: Before  it  is  burned,  methane  leaks   from  wellheads,  pipelines  and  storage   tanks.  Methane  is  up  to  120  times  as   potent  a  greenhouse  gas  as  CO2.   Fracked  methane  can  contain  ra-­ don,  a  radioactive  gas  that  is  a  decay   product  of  uranium  and  thorium.  De-­ cay  products  of  radon  are  solids  that   stick  to  surfaces  and  if  dust  particles   of  this  stuff  are  inhaled,  it  can  stick  to   WKHDLUZD\VDQGVLJQLÂżFDQWO\LQFUHDVH the  risk  of  developing  lung  cancer.     Each  fracking  of  a  well  uses  mil-­ lions  of  gallons  of  water  laced  with   toxic  chemicals,  and  each  well  can  be   fracked  up  to  18  times.  The  industry   says  that  “if  done  properly,â€?  this   ZDWHUVKRXOGQRWÂżQGLWVZD\LQWR aquifers  and  water  supplies,  but  the   fact  is  that  it  does.  And  water  that  is   recovered  from  these  wells  is  placed

in  large  lagoons,  where  evaporation   releases  the  toxic  ingredients  into  the   atmosphere.   Vermont  Gas  indicates  that  70   percent  of  the  methane  that  travels   through  this  pipeline  would  end  up   at  International  Paper  and  beyond.   Is  this  the  “public  goodâ€?  that  the   VERMONT  Public  Service  Board  is   to  rule  on? One  author,  in  a  recent  editorial,   said  that  “the  jury  is  out  on  fracking.â€?   (If  there  is  any  doubt  in  your  mind   about  this,  watch  the  documentary   “Gaslandâ€?  and  its  recently  released   sequel,  “Gasland  II.â€?  Everyone,  no   matter  which  side  of  the  issue  you  are   RQVKRXOGZDWFKWKLVÂżOPLI\RXVWLOO believe  that  seeing  is  believing.) This  author  also  states  that  mov-­ ing  to  renewables  is  not  going  to   happen  in  our  lifetime,  barring   a  major  breakthrough.  The  only   breakthrough  needed  is  political  will.   Germany  supplies  up  to  40  percent   of  its  energy  needs  using  renewables   today.  And  a  Stanford  University   study  concluded  that  New  York  State   could  supply  99  percent  of  the  entire   state’s  energy  needs  from  renewables   within  20  years. The  alternative?  Experts  tell  us   that  if  we  continue  on  our  pres-­ ent  path,  within  15  years  runaway,   impossible-­to-­stop  global  warming   will  begin  in  earnest  and  would   take  at  least  1,000  years  to  begin  to   reverse  itself,  assuming  all  manmade   CO2  were  to  stop  immediately.  Is   this  the  legacy  we  want  to  leave  to   our  children?   Several  years  ago,  renowned   author  and  environmental  advocate   Bill  McKibben,  founder  of  350. org  and  member  of  the  Middlebury   College  faculty,  made  it  clear  that   350  parts  per  million  of  CO2  was  the   absolute  highest  level  of  atmospheric   CO2  that  was  compatible  with  our   world  as  we  know  it.  Within  the  past   few  months,  the  world  passed  the   400  ppm  mark.  Middlebury  College   President  Ron  Liebowitz  recently   stated  that  the  college  administration   believes  the  pipeline  will  contribute   to  the  economic  welfare  of  the  region   and  “that  it  would  be  unacceptable   for  us  to  stand  in  the  way  of  real  and   measurable  progress  toward  goals   broadly  shared  in  our  community.â€?

What  about  the  goal  of  a  healthy   planet  for  our  grandchildren?   While  we  understand  the  impor-­ tance  of  a  strong  and  vibrant  econ-­ omy,  we  urge  the  many  intelligent,   well  respected  people  in  positions  of   leadership  and  responsibility  in  our   community  to  deepen  their  under-­ standing  of  the  science  and  econom-­ ics  of  fossil  fuels  and  reassess  their   support  for  the  pipeline.  Our  local   leaders  have  the  opportunity  to  do  a   much  better  job  of  social  and  envi-­ ronmental  stewardship  than  some  of   our  national  leaders  have  done. One  of  the  reasons  for  a  public   lack  of  understanding  of  the  dangers   of  fracking  is  that  when  Dick  Cheney   was  vice  president,  he  formulated   energy  policy  in  closed  meetings   with  energy  industry  bosses,  and  he   supported  legislation  that  exempted   fracking  from  Clean  Air  Act  and   Clean  Water  Act  regulation  (the  Hal-­ liburton  loophole).  As  a  result,  the   amounts  of  carcinogens  and  other   toxic  chemicals  used  to  frack  gas   wells  don’t  even  have  to  be  publicly   disclosed,  let  alone  accounted  for.   And  Dick  Cheney  is  not  the  only   P\RSLFQDWLRQDOÂżJXUH Ninety-­seven  percent  of  clima-­ tologists  agree  that  global  warming   is  caused  by  burning  of  fossil  fuels   (with  resultant  increases  in  CO2,   preventing  heat  loss  into  space).  Yet,   in  April  of  2011  the  U.S.  House  of   Representatives  was  presented  with   the  following  resolution:  “Congress   DFFHSWVWKHVFLHQWLÂżFÂżQGLQJVRIWKH EPA  that  climate  change  is  caused   largely  by  human  activities,  and   SRVHVVLJQLÂżFDQWULVNVIRUSXEOLF health  and  welfare.â€?  Congress  was   simply  being  asked  to  acknowledge   that  the  burning  of  fossil  fuels  causes   global  warming.  To  claim  otherwise   is  to  engage  in  massive  denial,  yet   the  vote  was  184  in  favor  of  the   resolution  and  240  against.   There  are  many  complicated  and   SHUKDSVXQĂ€DWWHULQJUHDVRQVZK\VR many  of  our  “leadersâ€?  seem  will-­ ing  to  deny  the  obvious,  or  pretend   that  the  problem  doesn’t  exist,  but   it’s  never  too  late  to  learn  more  and   make  wiser  decisions.  Or  is  it?  The   choice  is  up  to  them.  And  to  us.   Tad  Powers,  J.D. :LOOLDP.)LÂżHOG0'

pringtime! We long for it, and yet with it comes unpredictable and changeable weather, including the internal weather of our emotions. Feeling sluggish after winter, but wanting to get going on outdoor projects? Having more intent than energy? Doing more than you have stamina for? Springtime can bring impatience with all its consequences. This is a good time to soothe your inner landscape and direct your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy towards the delights of the next 2 seasons. Acupuncture can awaken you to the vibrant energy of growth and new possibilities. !+I[M;\ZMM\Â&#x152;5QLLTMJ]ZaÂ&#x152;385-1900 www.wendygoodwinacupuncture.com

TEAMMATES  HEATH  LEGGETT  and  Karen  Nawn-­Fahey  celebrate  after  an  excellent  throw  by  Nawn-­Fahey  at   last  weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Counseling  Service  of  Addison  County  Bocce  Tournament  in  Middlebury. Independent  photos/Trent  Campbell

Bocce (Continued  from  Page  1A) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   really   happy   with   the   jump   we  had  this  year.â&#x20AC;? Thorn   said   some   programs,   espe-­ cially   for   youths   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   he   cited   thera-­ peutic   horseback   riding   and   hands-­ on  forestry  work  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  are  not  typically   covered   in   CSACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   funding   model,   which  often  relies  on  Medicaid  reim-­ bursement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  have  some  programs  that  we   consider   important   programs   that   arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   funded,   and   we   have   to   raise   money  for  every  year,â&#x20AC;?  Thorn  said.   Yet  those  same  programs  are  often   far  more  effective  in  reaching  young   people,  he  said,  than  those  for  which   CSAC  can  send  bills.      â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  can  have  someone  come  in   DQGGRRIÂżFHEDVHGWKHUDS\DQG\RX can   bill   for   that,   and   it   covers   your   costs,â&#x20AC;?  Thorn  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;But  for  a  lot  of   young  people  and  kids,  that  is  not  a   modality   that   is   hugely   productive,   WRFRPHLQWRDQRIÂżFHDQGVLWZLWKDQ adult  for  an  hour.  So  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  created  a   lot  of  alternative  programs.â&#x20AC;? And   that   eventually   led   CSAC   to   this   alternative   form   of   fundraising.   Bocce   (BOTCH-­ee)   is   a   bowling   game  played  on  90-­foot  grass  courts.   A  small  ball  is  tossed  by  one  of  two   teams,  who  then  take  turns  throwing   four  larger  balls  each,  trying  to  land   the  nearest  to  the  smaller  ball. Thorn   believes   bocce,   which   can   be   highly   complex   and   strategic   at   top   levels,   also   offers   novices   the   chance   to   compete   right   away   be-­ cause  it  does  not  require  specialized   skills  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  such  as  golf,  for  example.     â&#x20AC;&#x153;A   lot   of   organizations   do   golf   tournaments,â&#x20AC;?  he  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;And  you  go   to   a   golf   tournament   and   it   seems   like   a   thin   slice   of   the   population   that   participates.   So   we   were   think-­ ing  about  something  that  was  really   community   inclusive,   that   anybody   could  participate  in.â&#x20AC;? On   Friday,   that   meant   CSAC   clients,   CSAC   sponsors   and   com-­ munity  members  all  competing  and   interacting   on   eight   courts   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   ex-­ actly  what  CSAC  hopes  to  see  on  a

regular  basis.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   have   business   people.   We   have  clients  and  consumers,â&#x20AC;?  Thorn   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;From   what   we   know   about   reducing   stigma   and   creating   inclu-­ sion  in  the  community,  the  best  thing   you   can   do   to   reduce   that   is   to   cre-­ ate  events  with  a  mix  of  people  who   are  having  a  positive  experience.  So   there  are  some  ulterior  motives  here   LQWHUPVRIRXUÂżHOGDQGWU\LQJWRLQ-­ tegrate  people  into  our  communities

and  at  the  same  time  try  to  do  some   education.  This  actually  started  more   as   community   education   than   as   a   fundraising  activity.â&#x20AC;? When  pressed,  Thorn  confessed  to   being  the  source  of  the  bocce  idea.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;For   years   and   years   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   vaca-­ tioned  in  Maine,  in  an  area  of  Maine   WKDWKDVWKRVHKXJHĂ&#x20AC;DWVDQG\ORZ tide  areas.  And  we  went  with  another   family  â&#x20AC;Ś  and  we  would  play  bocce   for  hour  after  hour  after  hour,â&#x20AC;?  Thorn   said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;So  I  suggested  it  as  something   other   than   a   golf   tournament,   but   people   suspected   an   ulterior   mo-­ tive,  that  I  wanted  to  play  bocce,  and   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  some  truth  to  that.â&#x20AC;? Why  does  Thorn  like  it  so  much? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When  I  suggested  it,  people  said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;What?  Bocce  what?â&#x20AC;?  he  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;But   if  you  play  it,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  addictive.  You  can   have  a  beverage  and  stand  there  and   chat,  and  also  do  a  sport.â&#x20AC;? And   Thorn   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   who   noted   that   many  people  who  walk  by  say  they   will   play   next   year   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   is   happy   to   have  found  a  way  to  support  CSAC   while  also  sharing  his  love  for  bocce   on  a  summer  morning.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most   people   here   have   never   played   bocce,â&#x20AC;?   Thorn   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   the   beauty   of   it.   By   the   end   of   the   tournament,   most   people   feel   they   can  play  the  game.â&#x20AC;?

THE  COUNSELING  SERVICE  of  Addison  County  set  up  eight  bocce  courts  in  Middleburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  recreation  park   for  its  third  annual  fundraising  tournament  last  Friday.
