Republican  legislators  have  taken  the  Shumlin  administration   to  task  for  failing  to  articulate  how  the  state��&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  health  care  reform   ODZZRXOGEHÂżQDQFHGDVUHTXLUHGE\ODZ7KHDGPLQLVWUDWLRQ contends  it  has  â&#x20AC;&#x153;substantiallyâ&#x20AC;?  complied,  and  labels  the  partisan   display  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;stunt.â&#x20AC;? There  is  a  defensible  argument  to  be  had  on  both  sides.  Repub-­ licans  are  correct  that  the  law  addressed  the  need  to  identify  and   WRH[SODLQWKHPHDQVDYDLODEOHWRÂżQDQFHWKHKHDOWKFDUHUHIRUP law.  The  Democrats  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  the  Shumlin  administration  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  are   correct  that  the  rules  of  the  game  changed  after  the  law  was   passed.  It  was  thought  that  Vermont  would  be  able  to  get  federal   waivers  to  allow  it  to  skip  the  need  for  a  health  care  exchange   and  go  directly  to  a  universal  payer  system.  That  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  happen,   which  means  the  deadline  for  full  implementation  slides  to  2017.   By  any  reasonable  standard,  that  should  also  mean  more  time   WRSXWWKHÂżQDQFLQJSODQLQSODFH And,  from  a  purely  political  point  of  view,  the  Republicans  in   the  Legislature  have  so  little  power  that  their  complaints  are  not   OLNHO\WRJHQHUDWHDVLJQLÂżFDQWIROORZLQJ But  the  administration  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  the  Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Democrats  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   have  a  bigger  problem:  Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  beginning  to  become  evident  is   that  reforming  the  system  is  a  gargantuan  task  and  one  that  may   not  yield  any  real  savings.  Selling  this  to  the  public  may  be  a   challenge  they  had  not  contemplated. When  the  University  of  Massachusetts  delivered  its  study  of   the  proposed  single-­payer  system  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  which  included,  at  a  vague   OHYHODGLVFXVVLRQRISRWHQWLDOÂżQDQFLQJ²LWFRQFOXGHGWKDWWKH SODQZRXOGVDYHPLOOLRQWKHÂżUVW\HDUDQGDERXWSHUFHQW over  the  2017-­2019  cycle. That  is  nowhere  near  the  amount  Vermonters  were  told  when   the  law  was  being  debated  in  the  Legislature. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  true  the  plan  would  include  the  uninsured,  and  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  true  the   SODQZRXOGLQFOXGHEHWWHUEHQHÂżWV7KHSODQUHYLHZHGE\80DVV is  not  the  same  plan  proposed  by  the  Legislature.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  an   apple-­to-­apples  comparison. But  telling  the  vast  majority  of  Vermonters  that  they  will  pay   the  same,  or  more,  for  essentially  the  same  service  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  match   the  promise  they  heard  during  the  health  care  reform  debate. From  that  perspective,  the  Republicans  are  right;Íž  the  landscape   is  unsettled,  there  is  no  certainty  as  to  where  this  leads,  which   causes  unease  within  the  business  community.  Health  care  costs   are  a  major  factor  in  any  business,  which  means  they  will  delay   WKHLUSODQVXQWLOWKH\KDYHDÂżUPHUJUDVSRQZKDWOLHVDKHDG Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  problem. The  UMass  report  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  help.  When  talk  of  payroll  taxes,  etc.,   is  mixed  with  a  projection  of  little  to  no  savings,  then  businesses   have  every  reason  to  become  nervous. ,WZLOOEHFRPHGLIÂżFXOWWRLPSRVVLEOHIRUWKHJRYHUQRUWRZDON into  a  business,  explain  that  health  care  costs  will  run  roughly   the  same,  or  more,  but  that  they  should  feel  better  because  more   people  are  being  covered.  That  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  square  with  the  promise   of  getting  health  care  costs  off  the  backs  of  employers,  or  the   promise  that  the  system,  once  freed  of  burdensome  administra-­ tive  costs  would  be  far  less  and  the  quality  would  improve. (As  a  nation,  we  heard  the  same  promise  about  the  medical   savings  that  would  come  through  improved  IT  systems.  It  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   happen.) What  the  report  from  UMass  hints  is  that  the  savings  in  Ver-­ mont  just  arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  there.  Or  are  at  least  not  there  to  the  degree  once   thought. 6KRXOGZHEHVXUSULVHG" No.  How  is  it  that  we  can  add  thousands  of  people  to  the   system,  improve  the  level  of  services  provided,  insist  on  better   TXDOLW\FDUH$1'VDYHPRQH\" If  the  conclusions  are  to  be  any  different  than  what  the  study   suggests,  it  would  be  advisable  for  the  advocates  to  begin  the   explanations.  Otherwise,  this  is  an  issue  that  will  begin  to  fall  in   the  skepticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  favor. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  massive  task.  And,  to  the  administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  credit,  the   process  has  been  invaluable  in  terms  of  bringing  a  new  level  of   coordination  and  cooperation  to  the  Vermont  health  care  system.   Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  also  learned  more  about  the  system  and  its  strengths  and   weaknesses,  which  is  central  to  any  path  we  choose. But  the  process  is  at  a  sensitive  position.  There  is  no  clear  un-­ derstanding  as  to  what  lies  ahead,  who  will  be  affected,  and  how.   The  doubt  is  beginning  to  gallop  forth. That  needs  to  change. Emerson  Lynn,  St.  Albans  Messenger

Considering  an  out-­of-­this-­world  offer Sometimes  I  get  a  little  overwhelmed  by  all  the  stuff   that   gets   thrown   my   way   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   school   board   stories,   per-­ VRQDOLW\SURÂżOHVRELWXDULHVZHGGLQJVDQGHQJDJHPHQWV crime   stories,   gossip   and   hard   news   from   Montpelier.   All  the  nitty  gritty  details  that  make  up  the  grubby  lives   we  human  beings  endure  on  this  patch  of  rock  hurtling   through  space.  Good  grief!  Occasionally  a  guy  just  wants   get  away  from  it  all. Now,  thanks  to  the  Dutch,  I  may  just  get  to  do  that.   Recently   I   heard   about   Mars   One,   an   international   project   (based   out   of  Amersfoort,   The   Netherlands)   to   put  a  human  colony  on  the  Red  Planet  in  2023.  It  was  ex-­ hilarating  to  read  about  such  a  grand   and   uplifting   project   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   an   imagina-­ tive  leap  into  the  future  that  recharges   all  the  youthful  enthusiasm  I  felt  for   space   exploration   as   a   boy   during   NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  manned  missions  in  the  â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s   By John and  â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s.   McCright In   their   mission   statement,   the   or-­ ganizers  of  Mars  One  state  that  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mars   exploration  offers  opportunity  to  cel-­ ebrate  the  power  of  a  united  humanity.  As  with  the  Apol-­ lo  Moon  landings,  a  human  mission  to  Mars  will  inspire   generations   to   believe   that   all   things   are   possible,   that   anything  can  be  achieved.â&#x20AC;?  Heady  stuff. Their  language  at  times  is  moving:  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mars  One  believes   it  is  not  only  possible,  but  imperative  that  we  establish  a   permanent  settlement  on  Mars  in  order  to  accelerate  our   understanding  of  the  formation  of  the  solar  system,  the   origins  of  life,  and  of  equal  importance,  our  place  in  the   universe.â&#x20AC;?  Boy,  talk  about  losing  yourself  in  a  monumen-­ tal  project  that  could  change  all  of  humanity.  Sign  me  up. It  could  be  a  little  rough,  as  with  any  pioneering  ex-­ perience,   but   I   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   think   it   will   be   that   bad.   Space   cadets   on   Mars   will   get   50   square   meters   of   living   space,   and,   according   to   the   website,   get   to   â&#x20AC;&#x153;prepare   fresh   food   that   they   themselves   grew   and   harvested.â&#x20AC;?   The  gig  comes  with  rovers  that  are  able  to  race  around   the  surface  of  the  planet;Íž  since  it  is  not  yet  populated,  

there  are  no  speed  limits. The  group  that  is  organizing  Mars  One  will  be  accept-­ ing  applications  for  the  trip  to  Mars  from  anyone  in  the   ZRUOG/DVWPRQWK0DUV2QHLVVXHGWKHEDVLFTXDOLÂżFD-­ tions.  It  says  a  cadet  must  be  of  normally  good  health,   psychologically   stable   and   stand   between   5   foot   1   and   WKUHHTXDUWHULQFKHVDQGIRRWDQGIRXUÂżIWKVLQFKHV tall.  I  qualify!

Hmmm. Looking  for  some  reassurance  elsewhere  on  the  Inter-­ net,  I  stumbled  across  a  recent  report  on  a  simulated  mis-­ sion  to  Mars  carried  out  by  the  European  Space  Agency.   They  put  six  men  through  intensive  training,  then  locked   them   in   a   windowless   â&#x20AC;&#x153;spaceshipâ&#x20AC;?   in   Moscow   for   17   months.  Their  only  contact  with  the  outside  world  was   through   the   Internet   and   phone   lines   with   a   20-­minute   delay   to   mimic   how   it   would   be   to   phone   home   from   Mars.  Turns  out  the  men  were  incredibly  bored  and  spent   up  to  20  hours  a  day  sleeping.  When  awake  they  hung   out  playing  the  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guitar  Heroâ&#x20AC;?  video  game.  The  study  in   the  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Proceedings  of  the  National  Academy  of  Sciencesâ&#x20AC;?   said  two  of  the  six  â&#x20AC;&#x153;astronautsâ&#x20AC;?  were  OK  at  the  end  of   the   simulation,   but   four   of   them   had   problems,   includ-­ (See  Clippings,  Page  5A)

Consolidating  school  districts  can  be  tricky A   committee   in   the   seven-­town,   nine-­school   Addison   Central  Supervisory  Union  is  considering  whether  to  pro-­ pose   to   the   voters   that   some   or   all   of   the  ACSU   schools   be   combined   into   a   Regional   Education   District   or   RED.   The  Jeffords  Center,  a  research  institute  at  the  University   of  Vermont,  recently  completed  a  report  for  the  Legislature   on  voluntary  school  district  merger  activity,  which  provides   useful  information  on  the  experiences  of  other  districts  in   Vermont.   In   2010,   the   Legislature   passed  Act   153,   providing   incentives   to   school   districts   to   merge   voluntarily.   Since   that  time,  only  one  Regional  Education   District  has  been  approved  by  the  vot-­ ers.  This  is  the  Mountain  Towns  RED,   which  combined  the  formerly  separate   districts   of   Landgrove,   Londonderry,   By  Eric  L.  Davis Peru  and  Weston  in  south-­central  Ver-­ mont   into   a   single   RED.   Even   before   the   RED   was   approved,   K-­8   students   from  all  four  of  these  towns  attended  the  same  school,  Flood   Brook  Union  School  in  Londonderry.  All  four  towns  offer   high   school   choice,   with   students   attending   high   schools   such   as   Burr   &   Burton   in   Manchester   or   Black   River   in   Ludlow.  Thus,   creation   of   the   Mountain  Towns   RED   did   not  change  the  number  of  school  buildings  in  the  district. Act  153  requires  that  an  RED  be  approved  by  the  vot-­ ers  in  every  one  of  the  districts  involved,  so  a  defeat  in  one   town  can  reject  the  proposal  for  the  entire  region.  In  the  past   two   years,   voters   in   four   different   areas   of   the   state   have   rejected  proposals  to  combine  separate  school  districts  into   REDs.  Proposals  failed  in  Addison  Northwest,  Chittenden  

Politically Thinking

East,   Franklin   West   and   Orange   Southwest.  Additionally,   study   committees   in   Chittenden   South   and   Southwestern   Vermont   decided   not   to   proceed   with   RED   votes   in   their   districts. Thus,  since  Act  153  was  passed,  only  the  Mountain  Towns   RED,  involving  four  towns  that  already  shared  a  K-­8  school   building,  has  been  approved  by  the  voters.  The  researchers   from   the   Jeffords   Center   noted   that   the   two   principal   ob-­ stacles   to   REDs   in   those   instances   in   which   they   have   been   rejected   by   the   voters  were  concerns  about  loss  of  lo-­ cal  control  and  closure  of  school  build-­ ings.  These  two  concerns  are  likely  to   be  major  challenges  to  the  creation  of   an  RED  in  Addison  Central,  especial-­ ly   considering   a   unique   aspect   of   the   ACSU,  the  large  share  of  the  districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   population   residing   in   just   one   town,   Middlebury. State   statutes   governing   REDs   re-­ quire  that  their  boards  represent  voters  in  the  towns  making   up  the  district  in  proportion  to  the  population  of  those  towns.   7KHFHQVXVWKHPRVWUHFHQWRIÂżFLDOFRXQWDYDLODEOH shows   that   the   total   population   of   the   seven   towns   in   the   ACSU  is  14,721.  Middlebury,  with  a  population  of  8,496,   makes  up  58  percent  of  the  districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  population. Thus,  if  an  RED  were  established  in  the  ACSU  towns,   its  board  representation  would  likely  be  very  similar  to  that   on  the  current  UD-­3  board  governing  MUHS  and  MUMS.   The  UD-­3  board  has  13  members,  seven  from  Middlebury   and  one  each  from  Bridport,  Cornwall,  Ripton,  Salisbury,   (See  Davis,  Page  5A)

Our  house  in  Weybridge  was   robbed  last  fall.  We  had  never   locked  our  doors  because  our  house   is  small  and  modest  and  very  close   to  Horse  Farm  Road.  We  thought   anyone  looking  at  our  house  or  even   in  through  the  windows  would  see   that  there  was  nothing  here  worth   stealing. As  it  happened,  we  were  a  little   bit  right  about  that  and  too  much   wrong. The  people  who  robbed  us  took   six  small  pieces  of  gold  and  silver   jewelry.  Each  one  was  a  gift  to  me   from  my  mother  or  my  husband.  A   small  handful  of  rhinestone  jew-­ elry  was  also  taken,  along  with  the   heart  box  my  niece  made  me  when   she  was  small.  There  were  old   rhinestone  necklaces  and  earrings   I  remember  my  mother  wearing   when  she  dressed  up,  and  a  pretty   necklace  and  bracelet  from  my   husband,  and  some  brooches  and   bracelets  from  my  kids  who  knew  I   liked  sparkles. Altogether,  my  jewelry  was  prob-­ ably  worth  almost  nothing  to  the   people  who  took  it. To  me,  they  were  precious  and   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  sad  they  are  gone.  I  still  am   surprised  that  people  came  into   my  house  and  stole  things,  so  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m   writing  to  those  of  you  who  think,   like  I  used  to,  that  they  have  nothing   worth  stealing.  We  just  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  know.   Keep  yourself  safe.

Gun  control  a   Ă&#x20AC;DZHGPRYH As  a  longtime  member  of  the   1DWLRQDO5LĂ&#x20AC;H$VVRFLDWLRQ,DPRQ their  side.  However,  I  have  seen  the   association  get  some  larger  in  inter-­ est  that  does  not  help  the  legal  gun   owner.  Thirty-­  and  50-­shot  clips  are   not  required  for  target  shooting  and   are  illegal  for  hunting.  A  well-­placed   shot  and  maybe  a  follow-­up  is  the   name  of  the  game  for  taking  game. Target  shooting  does  not  require   more  than  a  six-­round  capacity  re-­ volver  or  automatic  or  for  a  protec-­ tion  arm.  The  NRA  went  overboard   enlisting  voters  to  vote  against   Obama.  Now  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  payback  time  with   legal  gun  owners  getting  punished.   We  have  to  remember  a  gun  does   not  kill.  The  human  wielder  kills   with  the  gun.  So  this  latest  killing   of  20  schoolchildren  and  six  of  their   teachers  by  a  20-­year-­old  youth   would  not  be  so  bad  if  military   weapons  were  not  available  to  him.   But  a  point  to  ponder  is  this  lad  just   ÂżQLVKHG\HDUVLQRXUQRZUXQ-­ away  school  system.  It  seems  those   that  do  this  type  of  shooting  have   been  neglected  during  their  edu-­ cational  period.  Our  gun  laws  are   now  enough  except  for  being  able  to   purchase  military-­type  weapons  or   accessories. It  will  not  stop  the  madman,  as   Abraham  Lincoln  was  killed  with  a   single-­shot  muzzleloader;Íž  Kennedy,   DÂżYHURXQGULĂ&#x20AC;H7DNLQJJXQVDZD\ from  the  public  is  not  the  answer.  If   you  did  not  have  an  automobile  you   would  not  have  run  it  into  a  large   tree,  killing  yourself  and  your  three   buddies,  the  three  nuns  in  the  other   car  or  your  own  children,  if  you  had   obeyed  the  present  laws.

it  with  what  has  to  be  regarded  as  a   serious  contender  for  Headline  of  the   Year:   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man   in   driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   seat   eventu-­ ally  admits  he  is  the  driver.â&#x20AC;? 2QHRFFDVLRQDOO\ÂżQGVDQLPDOUH-­ lated  incident  in  the  logs,  too:  a  deer   blind  that  fell  off  a  vehicle,  the  theft   of  plastic  goose  decoys,  a  huge  buck   suspected  to  be  shot  the  day  after  the   FORVHRIULĂ&#x20AC;HVHDVRQ My  favorite  animal  story,  though,   was   the   Bristol   police   response   to   an   injured   and   sick   duck   found   by   schoolchildren   on   the   playground   DW%ULVWRO(OHPHQWDU\$QRIÂżFHUUH-­ trieved  the  duck  and  took  it  to  a  shel-­ ter  in  Shelburne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One  of  the  sixth-­graders,â&#x20AC;?  the  re-­ port  noted,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;has  named  the  duck  Ed-­ ward.â&#x20AC;? As   much   as   we   might   smile   at   some  of  these  incidents,  there  are  oth-­ ers  that  hint  at  heartbreak.  The  theft   from  a  Monkton  home,  for  example,   of   an   urn   containing   a   deceased   in-­ fantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  ashes.  Another  incident  where   a  mother  was  allegedly  driving  along   a  Middlebury  street  â&#x20AC;&#x153;for  around  200   feet   while   her   8-­year-­old   daughter   was  holding  onto  and  running  along-­ side  the  vehicle.â&#x20AC;? The   mother   later   told   police   she   was   â&#x20AC;&#x153;not   having   a   good   parenting   dayâ&#x20AC;?  but  added  that  she  was  driving   slowly  and  was  â&#x20AC;&#x153;stunnedâ&#x20AC;?  when  she   realized  her  daughter  was  holding  on   to  the  vehicle. Whatever  we  think  of  these  cases,   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  inevitably  one  that  strikes  our   fancy.  My  favorite  was  a  court  report   about   a   man   captured   last   year   in   Starksboro  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  after  being  on  the  lam   since  2003. Though  he  had  been  convicted  of   stealing   a   Bristol   police   cruiser   in   2002  and  crashing  it  in  Lincoln,  the   man  claimed  to  have  no  memory  of   the  incident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  guessing  you  probably  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   remember   because   you   were   very   drunk,  based  on  what  I  see  here,â&#x20AC;?  the   judge  told  him. Where   had   the   man   been   for   the   past  nine  years? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  stayed  out  of  trouble  and  lived  in   the  woods,â&#x20AC;?  he  told  the  judge.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most   of  the  time  I  stayed  up  on  the  moun-­ tain.â&#x20AC;? Well,   the   judge   replied,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;At   least   we  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  have  you  in  another  DUI,   so   I   guess   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   something   to   be   said  for  that.â&#x20AC;?

Bristol   Police   Chief   Kevin   Gibbs   has,  by  necessity,  been  the  lead  inves-­ tigator   in   all   of   the   major   assault/sex   crime  cases  in  Bristol  for  the  past  25   years.  He  credited  Whitney  with  help-­ LQJKLPFOHDUXSDWKUHH\HDUEDFNORJ of  major  cases  that  he  had  been  unable   to  complete  due  to  his  other  responsi-­ bilities  on  the  small  force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She   has   been   a   really   handy   re-­

source  for  me,  and  probably  will  be  in   the  future,â&#x20AC;?  Gibbs  said. Lisa  Lax,  director  of  the  local  Fam-­ ily   Services   Division   of   the   Depart-­ ment  of  Children  and  Families  (DCF),   said   recent   crime   trends   bear   out   the   need  for  ACUSI.  She  said  that  in  Ad-­ GLVRQ&RXQW\GXULQJKHURIÂżFH received   607   reports   of   child   abuse   and  neglect.  Of  those,  191  resulted  in   the   DCF   intervening   for   child   safety   reasons.   Forty-­two   of   the   reports   in-­ volved  allegations  of  sexual  abuse  of  a   child  and  32  related  to  physical  abuse   reports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most   of   the   accepted   reports   in-­ volving  child  sexual  abuse  necessitate   law   enforcement   involvement   and   could  thus  potentially  be  supported  by   an  SIU,â&#x20AC;?  Lax  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately  only  a   few   of   the   reports   involving   physical   abuse  necessitate  law  enforcement  in-­ volvement,  since  most  are  not  serious   injuries.  By  serious  injuries  we  mean   KHDG WUDXPD EURNHQ ERQHV VHYHUH bruising,  etc.â&#x20AC;? Indeed,  ACUSI  is  dealing  with  some   of  the  more  disturbing  crimes  in  soci-­ ety,  being  committed  in  the  shadows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  topic  nobody  really  wants  to   WDON DERXW´ 6DDU VDLG Âł7KH IRFXV RI the  SIU  really  is  to  minimize  the  im-­ SDFWRIWKHVHHYHQWVRQWKHNLGV´
