Will Â health Â care Â reform Â deliver Â true Â savings? Republican Â legislators Â have Â taken Â the Â Shumlin Â administration Â to Â task Â for Â failing Â to Â articulate Â how Â the Â stateâ€™s Â health Â care Â reform Â ODZZRXOGEHÂżQDQFHGDVUHTXLUHGE\ODZ7KHDGPLQLVWUDWLRQ contends Â it Â has Â â€œsubstantiallyâ€? Â complied, Â and Â labels Â the Â partisan Â display Â a Â â€œstunt.â€? There Â is Â a Â defensible Â argument Â to Â be Â had Â on Â both Â sides. Â Repub-Â licans Â are Â correct Â that Â the Â law Â addressed Â the Â need Â to Â identify Â and Â WRH[SODLQWKHPHDQVDYDLODEOHWRÂżQDQFHWKHKHDOWKFDUHUHIRUP law. Â The Â Democrats Â â€” Â and Â the Â Shumlin Â administration Â â€” Â are Â correct Â that Â the Â rules Â of Â the Â game Â changed Â after Â the Â law Â was Â passed. Â It Â was Â thought Â that Â Vermont Â would Â be Â able Â to Â get Â federal Â waivers Â to Â allow Â it Â to Â skip Â the Â need Â for Â a Â health Â care Â exchange Â and Â go Â directly Â to Â a Â universal Â payer Â system. Â That Â didnâ€™t Â happen, Â which Â means Â the Â deadline Â for Â full Â implementation Â slides Â to Â 2017. Â By Â any Â reasonable Â standard, Â that Â should Â also Â mean Â more Â time Â WRSXWWKHÂżQDQFLQJSODQLQSODFH And, Â from Â a Â purely Â political Â point Â of Â view, Â the Â Republicans Â in Â the Â Legislature Â have Â so Â little Â power Â that Â their Â complaints Â are Â not Â OLNHO\WRJHQHUDWHDVLJQLÂżFDQWIROORZLQJ But Â the Â administration Â â€” Â and Â the Â Legislatureâ€™s Â Democrats Â â€” Â have Â a Â bigger Â problem: Â Whatâ€™s Â beginning Â to Â become Â evident Â is Â that Â reforming Â the Â system Â is Â a Â gargantuan Â task Â and Â one Â that Â may Â not Â yield Â any Â real Â savings. Â Selling Â this Â to Â the Â public Â may Â be Â a Â challenge Â they Â had Â not Â contemplated. When Â the Â University Â of Â Massachusetts Â delivered Â its Â study Â of Â the Â proposed Â single-Âpayer Â system Â â€” Â which Â included, Â at Â a Â vague Â OHYHODGLVFXVVLRQRISRWHQWLDOÂżQDQFLQJÂ˛LWFRQFOXGHGWKDWWKH SODQZRXOGVDYHPLOOLRQWKHÂżUVW\HDUDQGDERXWSHUFHQW over Â the Â 2017-Â2019 Â cycle. That Â is Â nowhere Â near Â the Â amount Â Vermonters Â were Â told Â when Â the Â law Â was Â being Â debated Â in Â the Â Legislature. Itâ€™s Â true Â the Â plan Â would Â include Â the Â uninsured, Â and Â itâ€™s Â true Â the Â SODQZRXOGLQFOXGHEHWWHUEHQHÂżWV7KHSODQUHYLHZHGE\80DVV is Â not Â the Â same Â plan Â proposed Â by Â the Â Legislature. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â an Â apple-Âto-Âapples Â comparison. But Â telling Â the Â vast Â majority Â of Â Vermonters Â that Â they Â will Â pay Â the Â same, Â or Â more, Â for Â essentially Â the Â same Â service Â doesnâ€™t Â match Â the Â promise Â they Â heard Â during Â the Â health Â care Â reform Â debate. From Â that Â perspective, Â the Â Republicans Â are Â right;Íž Â the Â landscape Â is Â unsettled, Â there Â is Â no Â certainty Â as Â to Â where Â this Â leads, Â which Â causes Â unease Â within Â the Â business Â community. Â Health Â care Â costs Â are Â a Â major Â factor Â in Â any Â business, Â which Â means Â they Â will Â delay Â WKHLUSODQVXQWLOWKH\KDYHDÂżUPHUJUDVSRQZKDWOLHVDKHDG Thatâ€™s Â a Â problem. The Â UMass Â report Â didnâ€™t Â help. Â When Â talk Â of Â payroll Â taxes, Â etc., Â is Â mixed Â with Â a Â projection Â of Â little Â to Â no Â savings, Â then Â businesses Â have Â every Â reason Â to Â become Â nervous. ,WZLOOEHFRPHGLIÂżFXOWWRLPSRVVLEOHIRUWKHJRYHUQRUWRZDON into Â a Â business, Â explain Â that Â health Â care Â costs Â will Â run Â roughly Â the Â same, Â or Â more, Â but Â that Â they Â should Â feel Â better Â because Â more Â people Â are Â being Â covered. Â That Â doesnâ€™t Â square Â with Â the Â promise Â of Â getting Â health Â care Â costs Â off Â the Â backs Â of Â employers, Â or Â the Â promise Â that Â the Â system, Â once Â freed Â of Â burdensome Â administra-Â tive Â costs Â would Â be Â far Â less Â and Â the Â quality Â would Â improve. (As Â a Â nation, Â we Â heard Â the Â same Â promise Â about Â the Â medical Â savings Â that Â would Â come Â through Â improved Â IT Â systems. Â It Â didnâ€™t Â happen.) What Â the Â report Â from Â UMass Â hints Â is Â that Â the Â savings Â in Â Ver-Â mont Â just Â arenâ€™t Â there. Â Or Â are Â at Â least Â not Â there Â to Â the Â degree Â once Â thought. 6KRXOGZHEHVXUSULVHG" No. Â How Â is Â it Â that Â we Â can Â add Â thousands Â of Â people Â to Â the Â system, Â improve Â the Â level Â of Â services Â provided, Â insist Â on Â better Â TXDOLW\FDUH$1'VDYHPRQH\" If Â the Â conclusions Â are Â to Â be Â any Â different Â than Â what Â the Â study Â suggests, Â it Â would Â be Â advisable Â for Â the Â advocates Â to Â begin Â the Â explanations. Â Otherwise, Â this Â is Â an Â issue Â that Â will Â begin Â to Â fall Â in Â the Â skepticsâ€™ Â favor. Itâ€™s Â a Â massive Â task. Â And, Â to Â the Â administrationâ€™s Â credit, Â the Â process Â has Â been Â invaluable Â in Â terms Â of Â bringing Â a Â new Â level Â of Â coordination Â and Â cooperation Â to Â the Â Vermont Â health Â care Â system. Â Weâ€™ve Â also Â learned Â more Â about Â the Â system Â and Â its Â strengths Â and Â weaknesses, Â which Â is Â central Â to Â any Â path Â we Â choose. But Â the Â process Â is Â at Â a Â sensitive Â position. Â There Â is Â no Â clear Â un-Â derstanding Â as Â to Â what Â lies Â ahead, Â who Â will Â be Â affected, Â and Â how. Â The Â doubt Â is Â beginning Â to Â gallop Â forth. That Â needs Â to Â change. Emerson Â Lynn, Â St. Â Albans Â Messenger

Considering Â an Â out-Âof-Âthis-Âworld Â offer Sometimes Â I Â get Â a Â little Â overwhelmed Â by Â all Â the Â stuff Â that Â gets Â thrown Â my Â way Â â€” Â school Â board Â stories, Â per-Â VRQDOLW\SURÂżOHVRELWXDULHVZHGGLQJVDQGHQJDJHPHQWV crime Â stories, Â gossip Â and Â hard Â news Â from Â Montpelier. Â All Â the Â nitty Â gritty Â details Â that Â make Â up Â the Â grubby Â lives Â we Â human Â beings Â endure Â on Â this Â patch Â of Â rock Â hurtling Â through Â space. Â Good Â grief! Â Occasionally Â a Â guy Â just Â wants Â get Â away Â from Â it Â all. Now, Â thanks Â to Â the Â Dutch, Â I Â may Â just Â get Â to Â do Â that. Â Recently Â I Â heard Â about Â Mars Â One, Â an Â international Â project Â (based Â out Â of Â Amersfoort, Â The Â Netherlands) Â to Â put Â a Â human Â colony Â on Â the Â Red Â Planet Â in Â 2023. Â It Â was Â ex-Â hilarating Â to Â read Â about Â such Â a Â grand Â and Â uplifting Â project Â â€” Â an Â imagina-Â tive Â leap Â into Â the Â future Â that Â recharges Â all Â the Â youthful Â enthusiasm Â I Â felt Â for Â space Â exploration Â as Â a Â boy Â during Â NASAâ€™s Â manned Â missions Â in Â the Â â€™60s Â By John and Â â€™70s. Â McCright In Â their Â mission Â statement, Â the Â or-Â ganizers Â of Â Mars Â One Â state Â that Â â€œMars Â exploration Â offers Â opportunity Â to Â cel-Â ebrate Â the Â power Â of Â a Â united Â humanity. Â As Â with Â the Â Apol-Â lo Â Moon Â landings, Â a Â human Â mission Â to Â Mars Â will Â inspire Â generations Â to Â believe Â that Â all Â things Â are Â possible, Â that Â anything Â can Â be Â achieved.â€? Â Heady Â stuff. Their Â language Â at Â times Â is Â moving: Â â€œMars Â One Â believes Â it Â is Â not Â only Â possible, Â but Â imperative Â that Â we Â establish Â a Â permanent Â settlement Â on Â Mars Â in Â order Â to Â accelerate Â our Â understanding Â of Â the Â formation Â of Â the Â solar Â system, Â the Â origins Â of Â life, Â and Â of Â equal Â importance, Â our Â place Â in Â the Â universe.â€? Â Boy, Â talk Â about Â losing Â yourself Â in Â a Â monumen-Â tal Â project Â that Â could Â change Â all Â of Â humanity. Â Sign Â me Â up. It Â could Â be Â a Â little Â rough, Â as Â with Â any Â pioneering Â ex-Â perience, Â but Â I Â donâ€™t Â think Â it Â will Â be Â that Â bad. Â Space Â cadets Â on Â Mars Â will Â get Â 50 Â square Â meters Â of Â living Â space, Â and, Â according Â to Â the Â website, Â get Â to Â â€œprepare Â fresh Â food Â that Â they Â themselves Â grew Â and Â harvested.â€? Â The Â gig Â comes Â with Â rovers Â that Â are Â able Â to Â race Â around Â the Â surface Â of Â the Â planet;Íž Â since Â it Â is Â not Â yet Â populated, Â
there Â are Â no Â speed Â limits. The Â group Â that Â is Â organizing Â Mars Â One Â will Â be Â accept-Â ing Â applications Â for Â the Â trip Â to Â Mars Â from Â anyone Â in Â the Â ZRUOG/DVWPRQWK0DUV2QHLVVXHGWKHEDVLFTXDOLÂżFD-Â tions. Â It Â says Â a Â cadet Â must Â be Â of Â normally Â good Â health, Â psychologically Â stable Â and Â stand Â between Â 5 Â foot Â 1 Â and Â WKUHHTXDUWHULQFKHVDQGIRRWDQGIRXUÂżIWKVLQFKHV tall. Â I Â qualify!

Â Showering Â with Â water Â will Â not Â be Â an Â option, Â and Â cadets Â will Â instead Â wipe Â themselves Â with Â â€œwet Â towelettes.â€? Â They Â pointedly Â say Â the Â trip Â will Â push Â cadets Â â€œto Â the Â very Â limits Â of Â their Â training Â and Â personal Â capacity.â€? Hmmm. Looking Â for Â some Â reassurance Â elsewhere Â on Â the Â Inter-Â net, Â I Â stumbled Â across Â a Â recent Â report Â on Â a Â simulated Â mis-Â sion Â to Â Mars Â carried Â out Â by Â the Â European Â Space Â Agency. Â They Â put Â six Â men Â through Â intensive Â training, Â then Â locked Â them Â in Â a Â windowless Â â€œspaceshipâ€? Â in Â Moscow Â for Â 17 Â months. Â Their Â only Â contact Â with Â the Â outside Â world Â was Â through Â the Â Internet Â and Â phone Â lines Â with Â a Â 20-Âminute Â delay Â to Â mimic Â how Â it Â would Â be Â to Â phone Â home Â from Â Mars. Â Turns Â out Â the Â men Â were Â incredibly Â bored Â and Â spent Â up Â to Â 20 Â hours Â a Â day Â sleeping. Â When Â awake Â they Â hung Â out Â playing Â the Â â€œGuitar Â Heroâ€? Â video Â game. Â The Â study Â in Â the Â â€œProceedings Â of Â the Â National Â Academy Â of Â Sciencesâ€? Â said Â two Â of Â the Â six Â â€œastronautsâ€? Â were Â OK Â at Â the Â end Â of Â the Â simulation, Â but Â four Â of Â them Â had Â problems, Â includ-Â (See Â Clippings, Â Page Â 5A)
Consolidating Â school Â districts Â can Â be Â tricky A Â committee Â in Â the Â seven-Âtown, Â nine-Âschool Â Addison Â Central Â Supervisory Â Union Â is Â considering Â whether Â to Â pro-Â pose Â to Â the Â voters Â that Â some Â or Â all Â of Â the Â ACSU Â schools Â be Â combined Â into Â a Â Regional Â Education Â District Â or Â RED. Â The Â Jeffords Â Center, Â a Â research Â institute Â at Â the Â University Â of Â Vermont, Â recently Â completed Â a Â report Â for Â the Â Legislature Â on Â voluntary Â school Â district Â merger Â activity, Â which Â provides Â useful Â information Â on Â the Â experiences Â of Â other Â districts Â in Â Vermont. Â In Â 2010, Â the Â Legislature Â passed Â Act Â 153, Â providing Â incentives Â to Â school Â districts Â to Â merge Â voluntarily. Â Since Â that Â time, Â only Â one Â Regional Â Education Â District Â has Â been Â approved Â by Â the Â vot-Â ers. Â This Â is Â the Â Mountain Â Towns Â RED, Â which Â combined Â the Â formerly Â separate Â districts Â of Â Landgrove, Â Londonderry, Â By Â Eric Â L. Â Davis Peru Â and Â Weston Â in Â south-Âcentral Â Ver-Â mont Â into Â a Â single Â RED. Â Even Â before Â the Â RED Â was Â approved, Â K-Â8 Â students Â from Â all Â four Â of Â these Â towns Â attended Â the Â same Â school, Â Flood Â Brook Â Union Â School Â in Â Londonderry. Â All Â four Â towns Â offer Â high Â school Â choice, Â with Â students Â attending Â high Â schools Â such Â as Â Burr Â & Â Burton Â in Â Manchester Â or Â Black Â River Â in Â Ludlow. Â Thus, Â creation Â of Â the Â Mountain Â Towns Â RED Â did Â not Â change Â the Â number Â of Â school Â buildings Â in Â the Â district. Act Â 153 Â requires Â that Â an Â RED Â be Â approved Â by Â the Â vot-Â ers Â in Â every Â one Â of Â the Â districts Â involved, Â so Â a Â defeat Â in Â one Â town Â can Â reject Â the Â proposal Â for Â the Â entire Â region. Â In Â the Â past Â two Â years, Â voters Â in Â four Â different Â areas Â of Â the Â state Â have Â rejected Â proposals Â to Â combine Â separate Â school Â districts Â into Â REDs. Â Proposals Â failed Â in Â Addison Â Northwest, Â Chittenden Â
East, Â Franklin Â West Â and Â Orange Â Southwest. Â Additionally, Â study Â committees Â in Â Chittenden Â South Â and Â Southwestern Â Vermont Â decided Â not Â to Â proceed Â with Â RED Â votes Â in Â their Â districts. Thus, Â since Â Act Â 153 Â was Â passed, Â only Â the Â Mountain Â Towns Â RED, Â involving Â four Â towns Â that Â already Â shared Â a Â K-Â8 Â school Â building, Â has Â been Â approved Â by Â the Â voters. Â The Â researchers Â from Â the Â Jeffords Â Center Â noted Â that Â the Â two Â principal Â ob-Â stacles Â to Â REDs Â in Â those Â instances Â in Â which Â they Â have Â been Â rejected Â by Â the Â voters Â were Â concerns Â about Â loss Â of Â lo-Â cal Â control Â and Â closure Â of Â school Â build-Â ings. Â These Â two Â concerns Â are Â likely Â to Â be Â major Â challenges Â to Â the Â creation Â of Â an Â RED Â in Â Addison Â Central, Â especial-Â ly Â considering Â a Â unique Â aspect Â of Â the Â ACSU, Â the Â large Â share Â of Â the Â districtâ€™s Â population Â residing Â in Â just Â one Â town, Â Middlebury. State Â statutes Â governing Â REDs Â re-Â quire Â that Â their Â boards Â represent Â voters Â in Â the Â towns Â making Â up Â the Â district Â in Â proportion Â to Â the Â population Â of Â those Â towns. Â 7KHFHQVXVWKHPRVWUHFHQWRIÂżFLDOFRXQWDYDLODEOH shows Â that Â the Â total Â population Â of Â the Â seven Â towns Â in Â the Â ACSU Â is Â 14,721. Â Middlebury, Â with Â a Â population Â of Â 8,496, Â makes Â up Â 58 Â percent Â of Â the Â districtâ€™s Â population. Thus, Â if Â an Â RED Â were Â established Â in Â the Â ACSU Â towns, Â its Â board Â representation Â would Â likely Â be Â very Â similar Â to Â that Â on Â the Â current Â UD-Â3 Â board Â governing Â MUHS Â and Â MUMS. Â The Â UD-Â3 Â board Â has Â 13 Â members, Â seven Â from Â Middlebury Â and Â one Â each Â from Â Bridport, Â Cornwall, Â Ripton, Â Salisbury, Â (See Â Davis, Â Page Â 5A)
Our Â house Â in Â Weybridge Â was Â robbed Â last Â fall. Â We Â had Â never Â locked Â our Â doors Â because Â our Â house Â is Â small Â and Â modest Â and Â very Â close Â to Â Horse Â Farm Â Road. Â We Â thought Â anyone Â looking Â at Â our Â house Â or Â even Â in Â through Â the Â windows Â would Â see Â that Â there Â was Â nothing Â here Â worth Â stealing. As Â it Â happened, Â we Â were Â a Â little Â bit Â right Â about Â that Â and Â too Â much Â wrong. The Â people Â who Â robbed Â us Â took Â six Â small Â pieces Â of Â gold Â and Â silver Â jewelry. Â Each Â one Â was Â a Â gift Â to Â me Â from Â my Â mother Â or Â my Â husband. Â A Â small Â handful Â of Â rhinestone Â jew-Â elry Â was Â also Â taken, Â along Â with Â the Â heart Â box Â my Â niece Â made Â me Â when Â she Â was Â small. Â There Â were Â old Â rhinestone Â necklaces Â and Â earrings Â I Â remember Â my Â mother Â wearing Â when Â she Â dressed Â up, Â and Â a Â pretty Â necklace Â and Â bracelet Â from Â my Â husband, Â and Â some Â brooches Â and Â bracelets Â from Â my Â kids Â who Â knew Â I Â liked Â sparkles. Altogether, Â my Â jewelry Â was Â prob-Â ably Â worth Â almost Â nothing Â to Â the Â people Â who Â took Â it. To Â me, Â they Â were Â precious Â and Â Iâ€™m Â sad Â they Â are Â gone. Â I Â still Â am Â surprised Â that Â people Â came Â into Â my Â house Â and Â stole Â things, Â so Â Iâ€™m Â writing Â to Â those Â of Â you Â who Â think, Â like Â I Â used Â to, Â that Â they Â have Â nothing Â worth Â stealing. Â We Â just Â donâ€™t Â know. Â Keep Â yourself Â safe. Anna Â Rose Â Benson Weybridge

Â However, Â I Â have Â seen Â the Â association Â get Â some Â larger Â in Â inter-Â est Â that Â does Â not Â help Â the Â legal Â gun Â owner. Â Thirty-Â Â and Â 50-Âshot Â clips Â are Â not Â required Â for Â target Â shooting Â and Â are Â illegal Â for Â hunting. Â A Â well-Âplaced Â shot Â and Â maybe Â a Â follow-Âup Â is Â the Â name Â of Â the Â game Â for Â taking Â game. Target Â shooting Â does Â not Â require Â more Â than Â a Â six-Âround Â capacity Â re-Â volver Â or Â automatic Â or Â for Â a Â protec-Â tion Â arm. Â The Â NRA Â went Â overboard Â enlisting Â voters Â to Â vote Â against Â Obama. Â Now Â itâ€™s Â payback Â time Â with Â legal Â gun Â owners Â getting Â punished. Â We Â have Â to Â remember Â a Â gun Â does Â not Â kill. Â The Â human Â wielder Â kills Â with Â the Â gun. Â So Â this Â latest Â killing Â of Â 20 Â schoolchildren Â and Â six Â of Â their Â teachers Â by Â a Â 20-Âyear-Âold Â youth Â would Â not Â be Â so Â bad Â if Â military Â weapons Â were Â not Â available Â to Â him.

climate Â change Â resolve. Â Dissent Â on Â this Â issue Â does Â not Â mean Â the Â prob-Â lem Â of Â climate Â change Â isnâ€™t Â real;Íž Â it Â means Â the Â proposed Â solution Â needs Â more Â study Â before Â we Â do Â things Â that Â can Â not Â be Â corrected. Â Vermont Â has Â actually Â sited Â some Â large Â scale Â wind Â projects Â along Â with Â a Â number Â of Â large Â solar Â arrays. Â We Â have Â biomass Â electric Â generating Â facilities, Â and Â we Â have Â seen Â expansion Â of Â methane-Â to-Âelectricity Â projects Â on Â our Â dairy Â farms. Â I Â believe Â a Â well Â managed Â program Â â€” Â especially Â large-Âscale Â ones Â â€” Â should Â have Â a Â data Â collec-Â tion, Â evaluation, Â and Â feedback Â loop. Â Itâ€™s Â just Â smart. Vermont Â is Â also Â providing Â a Â ma-Â jor Â carbon Â sink Â in Â our Â forests. Â We Â are Â growing Â more Â than Â twice Â the Â amount Â of Â woody Â biomass Â than Â we Â harvest Â each Â year. Â This Â seques-Â tration Â service Â is Â made Â possible Â in Â large Â part Â by Â our Â forward-Âlooking Â state Â land Â use Â policies, Â our Â commit-Â ment Â to Â land Â conservation Â funding Â through Â Vermont Â Housing Â and Â Con-Â servation Â Board, Â and Â our Â tax Â poli-Â cies Â that Â recognize Â the Â use-Âvalue Â of Â forest Â and Â farm Â land. Â Nowhere Â in Â WKHGHEDWHLVWKLVVLJQLÂżFDQWFRQWUL-Â bution Â to Â climate Â change Â abatement Â even Â recognized, Â let Â alone Â paid Â for.

Â If Â the Â potential Â savings Â are Â as Â large Â as Â ad-Â vertised, Â I Â would Â like Â to Â see Â state Â bonding Â to Â capitalize Â the Â project Â on Â a Â large Â scale. Â This Â would Â accomplish Â the Â climate Â change Â goal Â while Â also Â serving Â as Â a Â major Â economic Â stimu-Â lus. Â The Â bonds Â would Â ideally Â have Â a Â revenue Â stream Â attached;Íž Â this Â would Â be Â a Â good Â rationale Â for Â an Â all-Âfuels Â tax.
