Â â€œI Â just Â decided Â that Â now Â was Â the Â time Â (to Â retire).â€? Ortuno Â and Â her Â husband, Â Jim, Â are Â former Â owners Â of Â the Â Shoreham Â Inn. Â Julie Â Ortuno Â most Â recently Â worked Â as Â assistant Â innkeeper Â at Â the Â Swift Â House Â Inn Â in Â Middlebury. Â Prior Â to Â that, Â she Â was Â employed Â as Â sales Â man-Â ager Â at Â the Â Courtyard Â by Â Marriott Â Hotel Â in Â Middlebury.

Â He Â had Â just Â started Â his Â job Â at Â True Â North. â€œThe Â timing Â was Â really Â bad,â€? Â he Â said. But Â he Â and Â Gerry Â have Â both Â found Â some Â things Â to Â be Â grateful Â for Â in Â the Â aftermath Â of Â the Â incident. â€œThereâ€™s Â the Â great Â community Â that Â has Â reached Â out Â to Â me,â€? Â Veit Â said, Â alluding Â to Â get-Âwell Â cards Â and Â well-Âwishers. Â â€œThe Â community Â in Â Vermont Â is Â amazing.â€? That Â spirit Â of Â goodwill Â has Â been Â
epitomized Â by Â the Â Green Â Moun-Â tain Â Biking Â Club, Â which Â set Â a Â goal Â of Â $1,500 Â to Â get Â new Â bikes Â for Â the Â two Â injured Â cyclists.

Â Such Â bills, Â she Â said, Â might Â focus Â on Â harsher Â sentencing Â guidelines Â and/or Â man-Â datory Â treatment Â programs. â€œWe Â will Â try Â to Â get Â some Â gains Â in Â the Â Legislature,â€?

A DDIS ON Â Â INDE P E NDEN T
State Â eyes Â tough Â sledding to Â balance Â 2015 Â budget While Â weâ€™ve Â discussing Â all Â things Â local Â in Â this Â column Â in Â recent Â weeks, Â two Â substantial Â developments Â outside Â our Â immediate Â sphere Â warrant Â re-Â view: Â the Â recommendation Â to Â increase Â the Â state Â education Â property Â tax Â base Â rate Â by Â 5 Â cents, Â and Â Vermont Â House Â Speaker Â Shap Â Smithâ€™s Â call Â to Â make Â ends Â meet Â this Â session Â without Â increasing Â taxes. Â Last Â Tuesday, Â Tax Â Commissioner Â Mary Â Peterson Â issued Â her Â annual Â prop-Â HUW\WD[UHFRPPHQGDWLRQIRUWKHÂżVFDO\HDU6KHQRWHGWKHLPSHQG-Â ing Â budget Â shortcoming Â and Â proposed Â a Â 5-Âcent Â hike Â on Â the Â base Â homestead Â property Â tax Â from Â 94 Â cents Â to Â 99 Â cents Â as Â well Â as Â on Â the Â non-Âresidential Â property Â tax Â rate Â from Â $1.44 Â to Â $1.49. Â She Â recommended Â no Â change Â to Â the Â 1.8 Â percent Â rate Â on Â the Â homestead Â income Â tax. The Â Legislature, Â which Â sets Â the Â statewide Â tax Â rates, Â will Â consider Â Peter-Â sonâ€™s Â recommendations Â in Â the Â upcoming Â session, Â but Â will Â do Â so Â with Â anoth-Â er Â of Â Petersonâ€™s Â recommendations Â and Â Gov. Â Peter Â Shumlinâ€™s Â endorsement: Â WKDWODZPDNHUVDQGVFKRROERDUGVFRQWLQXHZRUNLQJWRÂżQGDZD\WROLPLW the Â annual Â growth Â in Â school Â spending. Â Shumlin Â had Â previously Â called Â for Â a Â symposium Â on Â school Â spending Â this Â coming Â January Â to Â study Â the Â education Â funding Â system Â and Â to Â address Â one Â of Â the Â weaknesses Â he Â sees Â in Â the Â current Â formula: Â that Â too Â many Â households Â donâ€™t Â face Â enough Â of Â an Â increase Â in Â their Â tax Â bills Â when Â school Â spending Â climbs. Â Thatâ€™s Â because Â residents Â with Â household Â incomes Â below Â $90,000 Â annually Â pay Â an Â education Â tax Â based Â on Â their Â incomes Â (or Â ability Â to Â pay) Â rather Â than Â on Â the Â assessed Â value Â of Â their Â property. Â Because Â of Â that Â formula, Â the Â burden Â of Â education Â is Â falling Â on Â a Â smaller Â number Â of Â Vermonters. Â Neither Â the Â Democratic-Âleaning Â House Â or Â Senate Â are Â likely Â going Â to Â change Â that Â formula Â in Â 2014, Â but Â some Â tweaks Â may Â be Â in Â order. Â Senate Â President Â Pro Â Tem Â John Â Campbell Â said Â the Â issue Â will Â be Â a Â major Â priority Â of Â his Â for Â the Â upcoming Â session, Â noting Â he Â thought Â the Â 16-Âyear-Âold Â legislation Â (starting Â with Â Act Â 60 Â and Â 68) Â had Â reached Â a Â â€œtipping Â pointâ€? Â in Â which Â the Â basic Â formula Â might Â need Â to Â be Â revised. Â Meanwhile, Â in Â an Â interview Â with Â VTDigger, Â House Â Speaker Â Shap Â Smith Â had Â a Â slightly Â different Â take: Â â€œOur Â system Â really Â is Â one Â that Â is Â targeted Â towards Â equity Â in Â a Â way Â that Â no Â other Â system Â is, Â but Â I Â think Â we Â need Â to Â dig Â deeper Â into Â the Â question Â of Â whether Â the Â systemâ€™s Â focus Â on Â equity Â is Â also Â getting Â us Â equitable Â results Â and Â opportunities Â for Â students.â€? The Â good Â news Â is Â the Â initial Â conversation Â has Â been Â set Â up Â in Â a Â non-Â confrontational Â environment Â seeking Â a Â nonpartisan Â solution. Â The Â bad Â news Â is Â that Â it Â remains Â a Â tough Â nut Â to Â crack Â without Â obvious Â solutions Â as Â to Â how Â to Â spread Â the Â burden Â among Â more Â Vermonters. Â While Â that Â conversation Â will Â dominate Â hours Â of Â discussion Â within Â the Â appropriate Â legislative Â committees, Â Smith Â also Â recently Â let Â it Â be Â known Â that Â Vermont Â will Â be Â facing Â annual Â budget Â shortfalls Â of Â about Â $50 Â million Â to Â $70 Â million Â â€œas Â far Â as Â the Â eye Â can Â see.â€? Â Thatâ€™s Â partly Â because Â the Â federal Â government Â is Â sending Â less Â money Â to Â Vermont Â to Â sustain Â existing Â programs. Â Itâ€™s Â also Â because Â the Â cost Â of Â existing Â state Â programs Â is Â growing Â faster Â than Â the Â growth Â of Â state Â revenues. The Â only Â viable Â solution, Â Smith Â said Â in Â an Â early Â volley Â before Â the Â Legislature Â returns Â full-Âtime Â to Â Montpelier Â in Â January, Â is Â to Â curb Â spending, Â not Â look Â to Â increase Â taxes. Â Thatâ€™s Â a Â bold Â statement, Â echoed Â by Â the Â governor, Â and Â a Â clear Â signal Â to Â the Â Legislature Â that Â the Â state Â canâ€™t Â spend Â its Â ZD\RXWRIWRGD\ÂśVÂżVFDOUHDOLW\ Thatâ€™s Â not Â a Â tune Â Progressives Â or Â many Â Democrats Â want Â to Â hear. Â Nor Â is Â it Â music Â to Â the Â ears Â of Â the Â thousands Â of Â recipients Â who Â depend Â on Â state Â programs Â to Â make Â ends Â meet Â while Â they Â try Â to Â improve Â their Â lives. Â Rather, Â the Â stage Â is Â being Â set Â for Â an Â upcoming Â session Â based Â on Â frugality Â and Â the Â recognition Â that Â spending Â has Â to Â be Â reined Â in Â to Â meet Â the Â stateâ€™s Â revenues. Â Nor Â does Â that Â mean Â cutting Â all Â programs Â equally;Íž Â rather, Â it Â could Â mean Â picking Â and Â choosing Â among Â those Â programs Â deemed Â most Â successful Â and Â trimming Â or Â eliminating Â others Â that Â have Â less Â of Â a Â payback. Â Thatâ€™s Â not Â being Â a Â Scrooge, Â just Â being Â realistic Â about Â the Â tough Â choices Â that Â lie Â ahead. Angelo Â S. Â Lynn

Â Please Â toss Â containers Â gently Â so Â that Â they Â donâ€™t Â enter Â roadside Â ditches Â RUĂ€\RYHUWKHPLQWRWKHZRRGV They Â become Â harder Â to Â retrieve, Â especially Â for Â older Â folks Â like Â us Â who Â are Â increasingly Â unsteady Â on Â snow-Â shoes Â and Â crampons.

Â Remaining Â liquids Â are Â messy Â in Â any Â season, Â but Â in Â winter Â they Â tend Â to Â freeze. Â We Â canâ€™t Â empty Â them Â out;Íž Â our Â backpacks Â get Â heavy. Â In Â the Â warmer Â months, Â liquids Â can Â attract Â insects Â and Â slugs Â â€” Â the Â latter Â enjoy Â beer Â especially. Â Sometimes Â they Â drown Â in Â the Â cans Â and Â rot.

Â If Â you Â are Â depositing Â entire Â six-Âpacks Â still Â in Â their Â cartons, Â please Â try Â to Â wait Â until Â drier Â days Â so Â that Â the Â cardboard Â doesnâ€™t Â become Â soggy Â and Â disintegrate Â when Â we Â pick Â them Â up. Â Same Â for Â bags. Â Again, Â please Â empty Â cans Â and Â bottles. 4. Â Disposable Â diapers Â present Â a Â particular Â problem.

barriers Â to Â receiving Â needed Â care, Â from Â staggering Â out-Âof-Âpocket Â costs Â resulting Â in Â medical Â debts Â to Â depen-Â dence Â on Â employers Â in Â order Â to Â ac-Â cess Â whatever Â coverage Â happens Â to Â be Â on Â offer. Â Over Â the Â years Â we Â built Â a Â growing Â grassroots Â movement Â of Â people, Â which Â was Â instrumental Â in Â the Â 2011 Â passage Â of Â Act Â 48, Â Ver-Â montâ€™s Â universal Â health Â care Â law. Â What Â has Â changed Â since Â then? Â Has Â this Â health Â care Â crisis Â in Â our Â commu-Â nities Â gone Â away? Â Are Â we Â no Â longer Â witnessing Â human Â suffering Â on Â a Â daily Â basis? Far Â from Â it. Â In Â fact, Â the Â imple-Â mentation Â of Â federal Â reform Â require-Â ments Â threatens Â to Â make Â things Â worse Â in Â our Â state. Â Forced Â to Â elimi-Â nate Â key Â public Â programs Â â€” Â VHAP Â and Â Catamount Â â€” Â the Â current Â â€œre-Â formsâ€? Â will Â further Â privatize Â our Â health Â system, Â forcing Â individu-Â als Â into Â a Â confusing Â marketplace Â propped Â up Â by Â public Â subsidies Â for Â the Â expensive Â products Â of Â private Â in-Â surance Â companies. Â Since Â this Â is Â the Â exact Â opposite Â of Â simply Â providing Â health Â care Â as Â a Â public Â good Â for Â all Â (and Â also Â a Â whole Â lot Â more Â costly Â to Â the Â people, Â though Â a Â boon Â for Â indus-Â try), Â our Â stateâ€™s Â commitment Â to Â mov-Â ing Â beyond Â the Â federal Â reforms Â and Â establishing Â universal Â health Â care Â in Â Vermont Â is Â now Â more Â important Â than Â ever. At Â 6 Â p.m. Â on Â Thursday, Â Dec.

Mittell (Continued Â from Â Page Â 4) rial Â stance, Â as Â that Â would Â be Â a Â clear Â case Â of Â journalistic Â malpractice.) Lynn Â adopts Â two Â particularly Â inappropriate Â tactics. Â First, Â he Â attacks Â others Â for Â his Â own Â sins, Â such Â as Â accusing Â letter Â writers Â of Â being Â â€œuncivilâ€? Â when Â they Â wrote Â to Â protest Â his Â characterization Â of Â the Â projectâ€™s Â opposition Â as Â employing Â â€œTea Â Party Â tactics.â€? Â In Â his Â recent Â editorial Â from Â Nov. Â 7, Â he Â laments Â such Â critics Â as Â â€œa Â handful Â of Â people Â (that) Â get Â together Â with Â similar Â talking Â points Â and Â pound Â away Â at Â WKDWPHVVDJHÂ´Â˛DÂżQHGHVFULSWLRQ of Â his Â own Â style Â in Â writing Â editori-Â als. Â He Â sanctimoniously Â decries Â letters Â that Â â€œspread Â falsehoods Â or Â half-Âtruths,â€? Â then Â proceeds Â to Â cherry-Âpick Â information Â to Â support Â his Â own Â arguments Â while Â failing Â to Â mention Â other Â important Â points. Â He Â characterizes Â his Â critics Â as Â a Â small Â minority Â of Â obstructionists, Â while Â there Â have Â been Â many Â more Â letters Â questioning Â the Â project Â and Â process Â than Â praising Â it Â in Â recent Â weeks Â â€” Â although Â more Â ink Â has Â been Â given Â to Â supporters Â through Â Lynnâ€™s Â own Â
lengthy Â editorials. Second Â and Â even Â more Â troubling, Â Lynn Â abuses Â his Â position Â as Â editor Â by Â responding Â to Â letters Â before Â readers Â even Â have Â a Â chance Â to Â read Â them, Â offering Â a Â â€œpre-Âbuttalâ€? Â on Â his Â page Â four Â editorial Â in Â anticipation Â RIDOHWWHURQSDJHÂżYH5HDGHUV then Â consume Â a Â letter Â that Â insti-Â gated Â his Â response Â as Â framed Â by Â Lynnâ€™s Â context, Â not Â on Â its Â own Â merits;Íž Â this Â practice Â violates Â the Â principle Â of Â letters Â to Â newspapers Â as Â an Â open Â democratic Â forum. Â 5HFHQWO\KHVXJJHVWHGWKDWWKHHGL-Â torâ€™s Â job Â is Â to Â â€œtemper Â the Â tempestâ€? Â created Â by Â the Â so-Âcalled Â â€œbulliesâ€? Â via Â a Â quotation Â from Â Emerson Â â€” Â but Â as Â I Â understand Â it, Â Emerson Â is Â referring Â to Â the Â â€œbulliesâ€? Â of Â government Â leaders, Â not Â ordinary Â citizens Â questioning Â the Â actions Â of Â those Â elites. To Â me, Â the Â real Â bullying Â is Â when Â the Â owner Â and Â editor Â of Â our Â com-Â munityâ€™s Â primary Â media Â outlet Â directly Â attacks Â citizens Â for Â taking Â an Â interest Â in Â town Â politics Â and Â expressing Â their Â opinions Â in Â an Â (allegedly) Â open Â forum. Â I Â know Â
a Â good Â number Â of Â citizens Â who Â have Â been Â intimidated Â from Â writ-Â ing Â to Â the Â Independent, Â for Â fear Â of Â unleashing Â this Â â€œeditorial Â tempestâ€? Â upon Â them, Â a Â sad Â state Â of Â affairs Â for Â a Â small Â community. As Â I Â assume Â this Â letter Â will Â prompt Â Mr. Â Lynn Â to Â seek Â to Â â€œtemperâ€? Â my Â uncivil Â accusations Â and Â half-Âtruths, Â I Â decided Â to Â save Â him Â time Â and Â offer Â some Â material Â for Â his Â inevitable Â â€œpre-Âbuttal,â€? Â in Â my Â humble Â attempt Â to Â capture Â his Â recent Â writing Â style: â€œJason Â Mittellâ€™s Â letter Â claimed Â to Â support Â editorial Â fairness, Â but Â it Â was Â destroyed Â by Â his Â own Â Mc-Â Carthyesque Â name-Âcalling Â and Â lack Â of Â full Â disclosure. Â He Â claims Â that Â readers Â have Â been Â too Â intimidated Â by Â my Â reasoned Â discourse Â to Â write Â letters, Â but Â unless Â he Â names Â names Â of Â these Â critics, Â how Â can Â we Â know Â they Â are Â real, Â especially Â when Â compared Â with Â the Â vast Â majority Â of Â Middlebury Â residents Â whom Â I Â am Â certain Â endorse Â the Â town Â hall Â plan? Â $GGLWLRQDOO\WKHSRWHQWLDOFRQĂ€LFW of Â interest Â posed Â by Â my Â own Â wifeâ€™s Â role Â in Â Vermont Â economic Â develop-Â

Â 7), Â but Â Mittell Â failed Â WRUHYHDOWKDWKLVRZQZLIHLV5XWK Hardy, Â chair Â of Â ID-Â4 Â school Â board Â and Â a Â member Â of Â the Â projectâ€™s Â steering Â committee. Â Given Â that Â she Â is Â beholden Â to Â the Â voters Â that Â elected Â her Â and Â the Â children Â served Â
by Â Mary Â Hogan, Â we Â must Â dismiss Â Mittellâ€™s Â criticisms Â as Â unduly Â LQĂ€XHQFHGE\WKRVHQDUURZVSHFLDO interests.â€? I Â look Â forward Â to Â my Â bullying Â being Â further Â tempered. Jason Â Mittell East Â Middlebury

Free Â Advent Â Series Â concerts Â at Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â start Â Dec. Â 5 MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Well-Â known Â Vermont Â contralto Â Linda Â Radtke Â will Â join Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â Church Â organist Â George Â Matthew Â Jr. Â in Â the Â first Â concert Â of Â the Â third Â annual Â Noontime Â Advent Â Series Â this Â Thursday, Â Dec. Â 5, Â at Â the Â church Â on Â the Â Middlebury Â town Â green. All Â three Â of Â the Â concerts Â in Â the Â series Â begin Â at Â 12:15 Â p.m. Â Everyone Â is Â welcome Â to Â enjoy Â the Â free Â performances, Â and Â brown Â bagging Â is Â encouraged. On Â Thursday, Â Radtke Â will Â
sing Â works Â by Â Bach, Â Handel Â and Â Vaughn-ÂWilliams. Â She Â was Â the Â principal Â alto Â soloist Â for Â the Â Mozart Â Festival Â and Â has Â also Â soloed Â with Â the Â Oriana Â singers Â and Â the Â Vermont Â Philharmonic. Â She Â has Â been Â a Â member Â of Â Robert Â de Â Cormierâ€™s Â Counterpoint Â since Â its Â inception Â and Â is Â also Â a Â member Â of Â Ah! Â Cappella, Â a Â vocal Â quartet Â sponsored Â by Â the Â Vermont Â Symphony Â Orchestra. Â In Â addition, Â she Â hosts Â two Â clas-Â sical Â music Â programs, Â Vermont Â Notes Â and Â The Â Classic Â Vermont Â
Choral Â Hour, Â at Â Classic Â Vermont Â 101.7FM Â and Â has Â toured Â the Â state Â performing Â her Â one-Âwoman Â show Â â€œTwo Â Hundred Â Years Â of Â Vermont Â Popular Â Music.â€? The Â next Â Noontime Â Advent Â Series Â concert Â on Â Dec. Â 12 Â will Â feature Â the Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â Band Â led Â by Â Emily Â Sunderman, Â who Â plays Â violin Â in Â the Â Addison Â String Â Quartet Â and Â several Â other Â ensem-Â bles. Â In Â the Â time Â of Â Handel, Â the Â word Â â€œbandâ€? Â often Â referred Â to Â a Â small Â group Â of Â players Â of Â various Â instruments. Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â Band Â
includes Â two Â flutes, Â two Â violins, Â a Â viola, Â and Â a Â cello, Â all Â played Â by Â accomplished Â musicians Â who Â are Â members Â of Â our Â very Â musi-Â cal Â community. Â With Â George Â Matthew Â Jr. Â at Â the Â organ, Â they Â will Â perform Â Handelâ€™s Â concertos Â numbers Â two Â and Â four Â for Â strings Â and Â organ. In Â the Â third Â week Â of Â Advent, Â on Â Dec.

Â He Â was Â a Â prolific Â composer Â for Â organ Â in Â the Â baroque Â and Â galant Â styles.

Â â€œHe Â just Â seems Â like Â he Â would Â be Â a Â great Â asset Â to Â the Â board. Â It Â was Â tough. Â There Â were Â some Â great Â candidates.â€? The Â others Â who Â the Â board Â inter-Â viewed Â and Â considered Â on Â Tuesday Â were, Â in Â alphabetical Â order: Â Â‡ 'HQQLV$UPHOO D FRQVHUYDWLRQ commission Â member.

Â â€œI Â donâ€™t Â think Â that Â position Â would Â have Â been Â served Â well Â by Â someone Â MXVWÂżOOLQJLQWKHJDSÂ´KHVDLG Gutowski Â described Â his Â decision Â to Â put Â his Â name Â forward Â for Â the Â opening Â as Â â€œjust Â the Â next Â stepâ€? Â in Â serving Â Ferrisburgh. â€œA Â lot Â of Â it Â is Â community Â ser-Â vice,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œIâ€™m Â a Â long-Âtime Â Ferrisburgh Â resident Â and Â donâ€™t Â plan Â on Â going Â anywhere Â soon.â€? Gutowski Â said Â he Â believes Â his Â business Â background Â would Â be Â use-Â ful Â in Â his Â new Â role. â€œThereâ€™s Â a Â lot Â of Â things Â people Â would Â like Â to Â see Â done Â in Â town Â â€Ś Â and Â in Â the Â end Â you Â have Â to Â have Â the Â ability Â to Â pay Â for Â them,â€? Â he Â said. Â Gutowski Â said Â he Â would Â not Â bring Â any Â plans Â or Â goals Â to Â the Â board Â with Â him Â other Â than Â getting Â up Â to Â speed Â as Â quickly Â as Â possible Â and Â pitching Â in. Â â€œThere Â wasnâ€™t Â any Â one Â particu-Â lar Â reason Â or Â thing Â that Â is Â going Â on Â in Â the Â town Â that Â prompted Â me Â to Â throw Â my Â hat Â in Â the Â ring,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œI Â certainly Â donâ€™t Â think Â I Â have Â
any Â agenda Â I Â want Â to Â push Â on Â the Â town.â€?

Hawkins, Â Cousino, Â the Â townâ€™s Â au-Â ditors Â and Â selectboard Â members Â say Â they Â all Â agree Â more Â help Â is Â needed Â as Â the Â town, Â their Â workload, Â and Â the Â complexity Â of Â the Â treasurerâ€™s Â job Â have Â all Â grown. Â The Â board Â talked Â with Â Hawkins Â at Â its Â Nov. Â 19 Â meeting Â and Â agreed Â to Â pull Â its Â ad Â for Â a Â new Â town Â treasurer Â and Â reevaluate Â whether Â the Â board Â should Â hire Â a Â full-Âtime Â treasurer, Â as Â had Â been Â its Â initial Â plan. Â Hawkins Â and Â at Â least Â one Â resi-Â dent Â suggested Â at Â that Â meeting Â that Â instead Â Hawkins Â should Â hire Â an Â as-Â sistant Â treasurer, Â possibly Â for Â fewer Â hours, Â because Â Hawkins Â could Â re-Â WDLQWKHSRZHUWRÂżUHWKHHPSOR\HH if Â he Â or Â she Â did Â not Â work Â out. At Â the Â end Â of Â that Â Nov. Â 19 Â discus-Â sion, Â selectboard Â members Â agreed Â they Â had Â to Â step Â back Â and Â recon-Â sider Â the Â position Â and Â their Â options, Â and Â Lawrence Â said Â they Â will Â do Â so Â at Â their Â Dec. Â 3 Â meeting. Â There, Â Lawrence Â said, Â the Â board, Â the Â townâ€™s Â auditors Â and Â Hawkins Â will Â sit Â down Â and Â â€œsee Â how Â weâ€™re Â going Â to Â move Â forward.â€?
