Middlebury couple takes environmentally friendly living to a whole new level By  ALEX  MUNTEANU MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Alice   Eckles   and   Ross   Conrad   were   living   in   a   traditional   apartment   in   Weybridge   when  they  bought  25  acres  in  Mid-­ dlebury   with   a   plan   of   building   a   cordwood  home.  Soon  after  purchas-­ ing  the  land,  the  massive  oil  spill  in   the   Gulf   of   Mexico   took   place   and   the   couple   talked   about   how   they   could  step  away  from  being  part  of   the  fossil-­fuel-­guzzling  world  while   their  permanent  home  is  being  built.

Eckles  convinced  her  husband  that   living  in  a  yurt,  a  circular  tent  tradi-­ tionally   used   by   nomads,   would   be   the   best   way   to   get   away   from   fur-­ ther   polluting   the   earth.   Now   they   are   in   their   fourth   year   residing   in   a  yurt,  and  they  have  been  doing  it   without  electricity.   ³,W ZDV DQ DGYHQWXUH DW ¿UVW DQG ZH KDG WR ¿JXUH WKLQJV RXW´ VDLG Eckles.   612:)$//621D\XUWLQ0LGGOHEXU\ZKHUHDFRXSOHKDVOLYHG²ZLWK-­ A   yurt   is   a   combination   between   RXWHOHFWULFLW\²IRUJRLQJRQIRXU\HDUV (See  Yurt,  Page  36) Independent  photo/Alex  Munteanu

Local  man  still  struggles   with  Vt.  Health  Connect By  ZACH  DESPART STARKSBORO   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Jeff   Keeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   patience   for   Vermont   Health   Connect,   the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  incarnation  of  the  Affordable   Care  Act,  has  run  out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   believe   anything   from   Vermont  Health  Connect,â&#x20AC;?  Keeney  said   late   last   week.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   been   wrong   every  step  of  the  way.â&#x20AC;? The   Independent   featured   Keeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   struggle   to   register   his   family   in   the   program   back   in   December.   Keeney,   56,   is   a   self-­employed   civil   engineer.   Since  he  does  not  get  insurance  through   an  employer,  he  plans  to  enroll  himself,   his  wife  and  his  son  in  their  own  plan   through  the  health  exchange.   Keeney  started  the  online  application   in  early  November.  After  waiting  hours   on  hold  on  the  Vermont  Health  Connect   help   line,   he   appealed   to   local   state   legislators. After  receiving  Keeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  letter,  Rep.   Mike   Fisher,   D-­Lincoln,   reached   out   on   the   Starksboro   manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   behalf.   He   contacted  Department  of  Health  Access   Commissioner   Mark   Larson,   and   Keeney   got   the   help   he   needed.  After   a  few  more  hiccups,  such  as  Keeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   16-­year-­old   son   being   listed   as   the   primary   contact   for   the   plan,   Keeney   was   able   to   complete   the   application.   He  mailed  a  payment  on  Dec.  31,  and   waited  to  receive  an  insurance  card  for   the  policy. More   than   two   weeks   later,   heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   still  waiting.  In  the  interim,  his  family   has   paid   for   four   doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   visits   out-­ of-­pocket.   Keeney   said   that   Vermont   +HDOWK &RQQHFW RIÂżFLDOV WROG KLP WKDW the  policy  would  be  backdated  to  start   Jan.  1,  but  said  he  does  not  believe  this. About   100,000   Vermonters,   or   about  16  percent  of  the  population,  are   expected  to  enroll  in  the  program.   The  Vermont  Health  Connect  website   went  live  Oct.  1  for  people  to  examine   the   plans.   On   Nov.   1,   individuals   and   businesses  could  start  signing  up.  After   glitches  and  multiple  security  breaches,   Gov.   Shumlin   delayed   the   deadline   to   register   for   insurance   from   January   to   March. More   bad   news   arose   for   the  

beleaguered   program   when   Shumlin   announced   that   the   state   was   now   directing   small   businesses   to   enroll   directly   through   insurance   companies   instead  of  on  the  glitch-­ridden  website. Keeney  sent  another  email  to  legisla-­ tors  Jan.  11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  have  yet  to  hear  one  person  who   has  been  happy  with  the  way  the  system   is   running,â&#x20AC;?   Keeney   wrote.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many   people  are  very  angry  and  they  expect   something  to  be  done  about  it.â&#x20AC;? Rep.   Fisher,   Sen.   Christopher   Bray,   D-­New   Haven,   and   Sen.   Claire   Ayer,   D-­Addison,  responded  to  Keeney. Fisher   acknowledged   that   he   has   heard   stories   from   other   frustrated   Vermonters,   like   Keeney,   but   added   that   others   have   found   satisfaction   in   the  program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There   are   the   very   frustrating   and   disturbing   stories   of   Vermonters   and   Vermont   businesses   who   have   been   tied   up   by   a   system   that   was   clearly   not  functioning  when  it  was  launched,â&#x20AC;?   Fisher   wrote.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;There   is   also   a   power-­ ful  story  that  I  have  heard  many  times   both  in  our  community  as  well  as  in  the   Legislature   from   Vermonters   who   are   gaining  new  and  better  access  to  care  at   a  more  affordable  price.â&#x20AC;? Fisher   remained   optimistic   that   the   Vermont  Health  Connect  program  will   be  a  success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   continue   to   be   frustrated   at   the   pace  of  improvements,  but  you  should   know  that  more  and  more  Vermonters   have  gained  access  to  VHC  plans  as  the   system  has  improved  in  recent  weeks,â&#x20AC;?   Fisher  wrote.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  is  too  early  to  say,  but   early   indications   are   that   more   indi-­ viduals  and  families  are  getting  covered   than  were  covered  in  the  old  system.â&#x20AC;? Bray   encouraged   Keeney   to   stay   in   touch   with   legislators   regarding   his   struggles,   while   Ayer   said   she   agreed  with  Fisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  response  and  that   she   shared   similar   frustrations   with   Vermont  Health  Connect. .HHQH\VDLGKHÂśVEDIĂ&#x20AC;HGZK\LWKDV taken   so   long   to   receive   an   insurance   card  for  a  policy  he  has  already  paid  for.   For  the  11th  week  in  a  row,  he  will  wait,   hoping  a  resolution  will  come  soon.

At   the   Bristol   selectboard   meeting   Monday,   LaRose   complimented   his   predecessor,  who  is  also  a  member  of   the  selectboard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   want   to   acknowledge   Peeker   for   his  six  years  as  chief  and  many  years  as   DQRIÂżFHU´/D5RVHVDLGÂł+HEHOLHYHV in  our  department  and  in  our  safety.â&#x20AC;?

Heffernan   said   he   will   still   be   an   active  member  in  the  department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  felt  it  was  time,  and  I  left  on  my   terms,â&#x20AC;?  Heffernan  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brett  devotes   an  enormous  amount  of  time  to  this  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   he  certainly  has  the  skills  and  talents  to   do  an  excellent  job.â&#x20AC;?

Dining & Entertainment Faust and

Melnikov to play Weber, Beethoven Violinist  Isabelle  Faust  and  pianist   Alexander  Melnikov  will  perform  to-­ gether  at  Middlebury  College’s  Mah-­ aney  Center  for  the  Arts  on  Thursday   at  7:30  p.m.  The  award-­winning  duo   will   play   two   Beethoven   sonatas,   two   Weber   Sonatas,   and   Schubert’s   Fantasy  in  C  Major. Faust  began  her  musical  career  at  a   very  early  age.  She  founded  a  string   quartet   when   she   was   just   11   years   old.  Her  vic-­ tory   at   the   1987   Leop-­ old   Mozart   C o m p e t i -­ tion,   at   the   age   of   15,   raised   the   BY GREG PAHL prospect   of   a   solo   ca-­ reer.   After   winning  the  1993  Paganini  Compe-­ tition,   she   moved   to   France,   where   she   grew   to   love   the   French   reper-­ toire,  particularly  the  music  of  Fauré   and   Debussy.   The   New   York   Times   says   her   sound   has   “passion,   grit   and   electricity   but   also   a   disarm-­ ing   warmth   and   sweetness   that   can   unveil  the  music’s  hidden  strains  of   lyricism.” Alexander   Melnikov   graduated   from   the   Moscow   Conservatory,   where   he   studied   under   classical   pianist   and   educator   Lev   Naumov,   the  “Godfather  of  the  Russian  piano   school.”   Melnikov’s   most   forma-­ tive   musical   moments   in   Moscow   include  his  early  encounter  with  the   great  Soviet  pianist  Svjatoslav  Rich-­ ter,  who  then  invited  him  to  festivals   in   Russia   and   France.  As   a   soloist,   Melnikov   has   performed   with   or-­ chestras  such  as  the  Royal  Concert-­

grass. The   Quintet’s   music   is   consid-­ ered   contemporary,   accessible,   pro-­ gressive   and   time-­honored.   Robert   Resnick,   host   of   Vermont   Public   Radio’s   “All   the   Traditions,”   says,   “The   Modern   Grass   Quintet   is   a   combination   of   seasoned   bluegrass   veterans.   …   In   addition   to   being   great  musicians,  the  members  of  the   MGQ  create  a  natural  swing,  which   makes  them  stand  out  among  many   pickers.  Great  music,  and  it’ll  make   you  want  to  jump!” (See  Arts  Beat,  Page  11)

(BPT)   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   The   sunny   days   of   summer   may   seem  like  a  distant  memory,  but  as  tempting  as   it  is  to  let  the  kids  curl  up  on  the  couch  when   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  home,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  important  to  keep  them  active   throughout   the   cooler   months.   Even   as   days   get   shorter,   you   can   still   use   those   free   hours   to   stay   energetic  and  fuel  their  curiosity. Whether  your  child  is  a  bookworm,  an  artist   or   an   athlete,   here   are   some   tips   for   keeping   kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  minds  and  bodies  active  during  fall  and   winter. 1.  Fuel  their  bodies  and  minds  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  The  hours   between  lunch  and  dinner  can  give  way  to  an   afternoon   energy   slump.   Give   kids   the   fuel   they  need  for  afternoon  activities  by  providing   a   sensible   snack   thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   low   in   sugar   and   a   source  of  protein  for  steady  energy. 2.  Befriend  Mother  Nature  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Young  minds   love   to   explore,   and   Mother   Nature   provides   the   perfect   backdrop   for   discovery   any   time   of   year.   Bundle   up   and   head   to   a   local   park   or   conservation   area.   You   can   even   plan   a   VFDYHQJHUKXQWIHDWXULQJORFDOĂ&#x20AC;RUDDQGIDXQD like   acorns,   birds,   squirrels,   etc.   For   younger   kids,   focus   the   hunt   on   items   of   different   colors.  Older  kids  might  like  to  try  their  hand   at   geocaching   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   learning   to   navigate   GPS   coordinates  to  reach  a  buried  â&#x20AC;&#x153;treasure.â&#x20AC;? 3.   Grow   something   green   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Dirty   hands   are   a   good   thing   when   kids   are   learning   to   care  for  plants.  Let  your  young  ones  plant  an   herb  garden  in  a  warm  windowsill.  First,  go  to   the   library   and   collect   some   basic   gardening   books.  Kids  can  read  and  choose  their  favorite   plants.   Give   kids   different   responsibilities   for   planting   and   watering   to   demonstrate   the   importance  of  teamwork.  Even  throughout  the   winter  you  can  reap  the  rewards  of  fresh  herbs  

for  the  dinner  table. 4.  Keep  moving  all  year  round  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Research   has  found  that  the  winter  months  often  result   in  a  decrease  in  kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  physical  activity  levels.   Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  let  cooler  temperatures  keep  your  family   from  staying  active.  Lots  of  team  sports,  such   as  football  or  even  baseball,  can  be  fun  year-­ round  with  the  right  clothing.  Or  choose  from   snow   sports,   such   as   skiing,   ice   skating   or   snowshoeing  to  keep  active.  Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  forget  the   best   part   after   an   active   day   in   the   cold   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   warming  up  over  a  hot  mug  of  cocoa. 5.  Get  artsy  with  DIY  puppets  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  With  some   paper   bags,   socks,   glue,   beads,   buttons   and   other   materials   found   around   the   house,   kids   can  create  their  own  puppets.  Have  them  make   favorite  animals  or  popular  characters  from  a   beloved   book.   Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   stop   after   the   glue   has   dried  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  inspire  creative  play  by  having  them   enact  their  own  puppet  show.

Porter Internal Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of

 Cynthia S. Smith, MD Board Certified in Internal Medicine.

Dr. Smith is accepting new patients. Dr. Cynthia Smith is a Harvard Graduate who studied Classics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Latin, a discipline she also pursued as part of Stanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center for Classical Studies in Rome.

CONTINUING THE TRADITION Doctors James Malcolm & Alan Ayer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; proud of their 30-year tradition of caring represented by Addison Associates in Obstetrics and Gynecology â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are enthusiastic about the bright future that Doctors Benvenuto, Turner and Wagner will help to ensure. Each doctor is board certified in OB/GYN.

Anna Benvenuto received  her  BA  from   Middlebury  College  and  absolutely  loves   living  in  Addison  County.  After  earning   her  MD  at  UVM  she  continued  to  do  her   residency  at  Fletcher  Allen.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maintaining  meaningful,  long-­term   relationships  with  my  patients  is  key  to  my   professional  outlook  and  goals.  Not  sure   which  is  more  beautiful  â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  the  Adirondacks   or  the  Green  Mountains,  so  the  kids  and  I   hike  &  bike  in  both.â&#x20AC;?

David Turner  studied  at  Dartmouth   Medical  School,  and  received  his  MD  from   Brown  University  School  of  Medicine.   Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re  lucky  to  have  him  back  on  this  coast   and  the  shores  of  Lake  Champlain  after  his   residency  at  Tacoma  Family  Medicine.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  believe  in  educating  patients  so  they   can  make  their  own  decisions  about   their  care.  Love  to  play  soccer!â&#x20AC;?

Katherine Wagner earned  her  MD  from   UVM  and  did  both  her  Internship  and   Residency  in  OB/GYN  at  Fletcher  Allen.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  crucial  that  we  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  lose  sight  of   compassion  as  we  continually  strive  for  the   most  up-­to-­date  care.  Living  on  our  family   farm  and  cooking  home-­grown  meals  helps   me  keep  perspective  on  whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  important.â&#x20AC;?

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of our legacy of providing complete, flexible, specialty OB/GYN care. Our team of providers specializes in: Office Gynecology and Obstetrical Care, Family Planning, Gynecological Surgery including Laparoscopic Procedures, Menopause, Infertility and In-Office Ultrasounds.

Hobbies (Continued  from  Page  17) challenge  to  an  otherwise  mundane  lifestyle.   Hobbies  generally  have  a  positive  effect  on   self-­esteem  as  well.  Workplace  or  interpersonal   stress  can  have  a  negative  effect  on  a  personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   ego,   whereas   a   hobby   can   help   rebuild   self-­ worth  and  be  a  reminder  of  the  things  you  do   best.

Routine alcohol screening can prevent alcoholism BURLINGTON   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Only   9   percent   of   Vermont  adults  in  the  past  year  were  asked  by   a  doctor,  nurse  or  health  care  professional  about   their  alcohol  use.  This  is  far  less  than  the  national   average  of  one  in  six  reported  in  January  2014  by   the  Centers  for  Disease  Control  and  Prevention   (CDC).   The  CDC  report  shows  that  alcohol  screening   and  brief  counseling  can  reduce  the  amount  of   alcohol  consumed  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  on  one  occasion  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  by  25   percent  for  those  who  drink  too  much. High-­risk  drinking  is  a  public  health  problem   in  Vermont.  Half  of  all  young  adults  age  18  to   24   drink   to   excess.     The   Health   Department   hopes  to  educate  health  care  professionals  about   the  importance  of  asking  adults  about  drinking   habits  and  behaviors  as  part  of  a  regular  checkup   or  appointment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   majority   of   Vermonters   who   drink   too   much   are   not   alcoholics,â&#x20AC;?   said   Barbara   Cimaglio,   deputy   health  commissioner.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over  time,   binge   drinking   disrupts   lives   and   leads   to   life-­threatening   health   conditions:   liver   disease,   certain   cancers,   heart   disease,   stroke   and   other  chronic  illnesses.â&#x20AC;? Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   approach   to   the   problem   of   high   risk   drinking  has  been  to  fund  and   support   community   coalitions   to   make   local   assessments   and   create   and   share   local   solutions.   The   Health   Department   recently   received  a  $9.9  million  Screening,

Brief   counseling   involves   using   a   set   of   questions   to   screen   all   patients   for   how   much   and   how   often   they   drink,   counseling   patients   about  the  health  dangers  of  drinking  too  much,   and   referring   only   those   few   patients   who   need   specialized   treatment   for   alcohol   dependence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We   anticipate   20   percent   of   those   people  who  are  screened  will  require  a  brief   intervention  and  about  three  percent  will   be  referred  to  treatment,â&#x20AC;?  Cimaglio   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;These   may   seem   like   a w k w a r d   conversations,   but   as   a   health  care  provider,   these   are   important   questions   to   ask,   and   it   could   reduce   excessive   drinking   statewide.â&#x20AC;?   T h e   Health   Department   also   has   a   campaign   called   Parent   Up   campaign   that   leverages   SDUHQWDO LQĂ&#x20AC;XHQFH DQG not  wanting  to  disappoint  a   parent,  as  the  most  effective   way   to   reduce   underage   drinking.

Foot Reflexology & Foot Massage Foot reflexology, developed in ancient times, is now used as a non-invasive healing therapy. It is based on the knowledge that there are reflexes in the feet, which correspond to every organ, gland, and each part of the body. Therapeutically applying pressure with the fingers and thumbs to particular points in the feet serves to relax tension, relieve stress, improve circulation, balance energy, and restore the natural functioning of the related areas in the body. Hour long sessions will include a soothing footbath, the application of reflexology techniques, and a gentle foot message.

Treat yourself! Relax, feel better, and say thank you to your feet!

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Note:   This   article   was   provided   by  the  American  Centers  for  Disease  Control   and   Prevention   as   part   of   a   series   of   weekly   articles   relating   to   heart   health   running   throughout  the  month  of  February,  American   Heart  Month. Every  journey  begins  with  one  step,  whether   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   climbing   a   mountain   or   preventing   heart   disease.   Heart  disease  is  a   major  problem  in  the   United   States.   Every   year,   about   715,000   Americans   have   a   heart   attack.   About   600,000   people   die   from   heart   disease   in   the   United   States  each  year  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   one   out   of   every   four   deaths.  Heart  disease  is  the   leading   cause   of   death   for   both  men  and  women. The  term  â&#x20AC;&#x153;heart  diseaseâ&#x20AC;?  refers   to  several  types  of  heart  conditions.   The   most   common   type   in   the   United   States   is   coronary   heart   disease   (also  

called  coronary  artery  disease),  which  occurs   when   a   substance   called   plaque   builds   up   in   the   arteries   that   supply   blood   to   the   heart.   Coronary  heart  disease  can  cause  heart  attack,   angina,  heart  failure,  and  arrhythmias. Cardiovascular   disease,   including   heart   disease   and   stroke,   costs   the   United   States   $312.6   billion   each   year.   This   total   includes   the  cost  of  health  care  services,  medications,   and   lost   productivity.   These   conditions   also   are   leading   causes   of   disability,   preventing   Americans  from  working  and  enjoying  family   activities. The  situation  is  alarming,   but   there   is   good   news   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   heart   disease   is   preventable   and   controllable.  We  can  start   by   taking   small   steps   every   day   to   bring   our   loved   ones   and   ourselves   closer  to  heart  health.   One  Step  at  a  Time As   you   begin   your   journey   to   better   heart   health,   keep   these   things  in  mind: (See  Heart  healthy,  Page  27)

DRY EYES

rPQCTVKHKEKCNRTGUGTXCVKXGUGXGT

Winter can be an especially difficult time for patients who suffer from dry eyes. Exposure to wind, dry air, artificial heat, and smoke from woodstoves or fireplaces can speed tear evaporation and irritate the ocular surface. Dry eye symptoms may include stinging, burning, scratchiness, excessive reflex tearing, and discomfort when wearing contact lenses. The mainstay of dry eye treatment is tear replacement with artificial tears. These are overthe-counter lubricant drops that can be used as needed up to several times a day. Preservativefree artificial tears are available for those who need to use artificial tears more than every two hours. Thicker tears, gels and ointments are also available for more severe forms of dry eye. Medicated eye drops containing cyclosporine may sometimes be prescribed to help the tear glands increase production. Steroid eye drops are also prescribed occasionally for discomfort and inflammation but are only for short-term use. Another treatment for dry eyes is the placement of punctal plugs in the tear duct openings to block the tear drainage system and keep more tears on the eye surface. Tears evaporate like any other liquid. You can take steps to prevent evaporation. In winter, when indoor heating is in use, a humidifier or a pan of water on the radiator adds moisture to dry air. Wraparound glasses may reduce the drying effect of the wind.   Some people may find dry-eye relief by supplementing their diet with omega-3 fa$y acids, which are found naturally in foods like oily fish (salmon, sardines, anchovies) and flax seeds. See your eye care provider for evaluation and treatment if you feel you suffer from dry eyes.

Commodore  girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  hoop  beats  Missisquoi,  48-­21 By  ANDY  KIRKALDY VERGENNES   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Given   that   the   Vergennes  Union  High  School  girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   basketball   team   features   only   two   seniors   on   its   roster,   Coach   Billy   Waller  says  a  major  concern  is  that   the  Commodores  show  progress.   After   Friday   nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   home   game   vs.  Missisquoi,  Waller  can  probably   put  a  check  mark  in  that  box. After   spotting   the   T-­Birds   the   opening   hoop,   the   Commodores   erupted  for  a  16-­0  run  that  featured   crisp  ball  movement,  balanced  scor-­ ing  and  tough  defense. The   3-­6   Commodores   led   the   T-­Birds   by   16-­4   after   one   and   by   double  digits  the  rest  of  the  way  in  a   48-­21  victory.   Even  granting  MVUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  1-­9  record,   the   win   was   impressive.   By   way   RI FRPSDULVRQ 0RXQW 0DQVÂżHOG which  in  December  defeated  VUHS   in   Vergennes   by   20,   only   defeated   the   T-­Birds   at   MMU   by   17.   MVU   also  only  lost  to  6-­2  Milton  by  12. Junior   Commodore   point   guard   K.C.   Ambrose   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   who   scored   11   points  and  contributed  seven  assists   and  six  rebounds  on  Friday  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  said   she  saw  the  progress.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;That   is   one   of   our   best   games,â&#x20AC;?   Ambrose   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;and   weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   capable   of  doing  that.â&#x20AC;? The  Commodores  and  their  coach   also   said   their   42-­16   loss   two   days   before   at   powerhouse   Mount  Abra-­ KDP JDPH WKHP FRQÂżGHQFH $P-­ brose  said  they  refused  to  wilt  under   the   Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   relentless   pressure,   and   maintain   that   intensity   helped   on   Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even   though   the   score   was   a   little  off  (on  Wednesday),  we  played   our   hearts   out,â&#x20AC;?   Ambrose   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   prepared  us  for  tonight  â&#x20AC;Ś  We  went   out  thinking  we  could  do  it,  and  we   did.â&#x20AC;? Waller   said   the   Commodores   learned  and  grew  facing  Mount  Abe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(That)   team   plays   defense   so   well,  I  think  the  girls  felt  some  space   tonight,   and   they   were   rewarded   when  they  took  some  shots,â&#x20AC;?  Waller   said. Those  shots  started  to  fall  at  5:20   RI WKH ÂżUVW ZKHQ $PEURVH VHW XS

senior   guard   Breanna   LaPan,   who   VDQNWKHÂżUVWWKUHHRIKHUSRLQWV to  make  it  3-­2.  Next,  Ambrose  went   coast-­to-­coast   before   swishing   a   three-­pointer  from  the  corner.   Ambrose   next   assisted   a   three-­ pointer   by   senior   Taylor   Paquette   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   who   recorded   game   highs   of   12   points   and   nine   rebounds   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   and   then  hit  a  three-­pointer  of  her  own  to   make  it  12-­2. The   Commodores   capped   their   run  with  a  Paquette  jumper  assisted   by   Ambrose   and   a   fast-­break   con-­ version   by   sophomore   Sarah   Poiri-­ er-­Thayer   that   came   after   she   stole   the  ball,  one  of  the  eight  T-­Bird  turn-­ overs  the  Commodores  forced  in  the   ÂżUVWTXDUWHU Early   on   Waller   appreciated   how   well   the   Commodores   passed   and   kept   their   feet   moving   against   MVUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  man-­to-­man  defense.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The  thing  that  I  liked  tonight  was   ZH VHW WKH WRQH WKH ÂżUVW TXDUWHU E\ moving   the   ball   so   well,â&#x20AC;?   Waller   said.   Two   late   free   throws   by   MVUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Meghan   Leadbetter   set   the   score   at   16-­4   after   one   period,   and   when  T-­ Bird   forward   Sadie   Reynolds   (11   points)   opened   the   second   quarter   with   a   short   jumper   over   the   Com-­ modoresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  2-­3  zone,  it  was  16-­6.   VUHS  answered.  Freshman  Shay   Pouliot  hit  a  jumper  and  LaPan  sank   a   three-­pointer,   both   after   catching   passes   from   Ambrose,   and   it   was   21-­6.   The   Commodores   then   went   into   an   offensive   funk,   with   only   a   put-­ back   from   sophomore   center   Nikki   6DOOH\ VHYHQSRLQWVÂżYHUHERXQGV  RUWKHQH[WÂżYHPLQXWHV%XWLQWKDW stretch   T-­Birds   mustered   only   six   points,  in  part  because  they  hit  only   two  of  eight  free  throws.  Late  in  the   half  VUHS  still  led,  23-­12,  as  both   teams  padded  their  rebounding  stats   by  pulling  down  missed  shots. Finally,  a  drive  by  Poirier-­Thayer   and  a  Paquette  putback  restored  or-­ der  and  made  it  27-­12,  VUHS,  at  the   half.  The  two  VUHS  putback  hoops   in   the   period   were   no   accidents:   Including   team   rebounds,   VUHS   (See  Commodores,  Page  31)

They   also   suggest   that   you   give   yourself   plenty   of   time   to   build   the   platform   and   that   you   go   to   auctions   for  old-­fashioned  furniture  that  is  more   apt  for  simple  living.  It  can  be  tricky  to   furnish  a  yurt  since  it  is  in  a  circle,  so   it  is  important  to  really  plan  out  what   you  want  to  include  in  the  home.  Size   is   also   an   important   consideration;Íž   Eckles  and  Conradâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  yurt  has  a  diam-­ eter  of  20  feet.The  couple  had  to  get   rid  of  basically  anything  that  required   electricity,  but  also  a  futon  couch  and   RWKHUIXUQLWXUHWKDWGLGQÂśWÂżW Their   truck,   which   runs   on   used   vegetable   oil   from   local   restaurants,   is  their  main  source  of  power  for  little   things   like   charging   cell   phones   and   Ecklesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  iPad.  They  have  downsized  to   a  single-­car  household  and  the  vegeta-­ ble  oil  increases  gas  mileage  and  has   D VLJQLÂżFDQWO\ VPDOOHU HQYLURQPHQWDO impact.  Another  thing  that  they  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   plan  on  changing  once  their  house  is   built   is   their   driveway.   Currently   it   doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   exactly   look   like   a   driveway,   especially   with   snow   blanketing   it.   More  it  looks  like  a  wide  path  into  the   woods.  It  stretches  a  half-­mile  but  they   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  want  to  pay  for  plowing  because   of  the  energy  and  fossil  fuels  that  that   would  consume. They   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   plan   to   improve   the   driveway  when  the  cordwood  home  is   completed  in  three  or  four  years. Their  harmony  with  nature  is  clearly   evident  from  how  they  have  chosen  to   live.  Every  day  Eckles  and  Conrad  are   working   to   be   better   about   how   they   use  materials.  The  couple  will  give  a   talk   on   yurt   living   and   the   environ-­ ment  on  Feb.  11  at  7  p.m.  at  the  Ilsley   Public  Library  in  Middlebury. Even   though   Eckles   and   Conrad   needed  to  give  up  a  lot  to  live  this  way,   it   seems   that   they   have   gained   it   all   back   in   personal   happiness   and   con-­ tentment  within  the  natural  world.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  try  to  work  with  nature  instead   RIÂżJKWLQJDJDLQVWLW´VDLG&RQUDG

It’s  against  the  law   to  discriminate  when   advertising  housing   related  activities. Particularly  on  sites  like  Craigslist. And  it’s  easier  to  break  the  law  than  you  might   think.  You  can’t  say  “no  children”  or  “adults  only.”   There  is  lots  you  can’t  say.  The  federal  government   is  watching  for  such  discrimination.

Bravo!

Our 2013-14 Membership Drive has reached its goal of 500 members (531 to be exact) and we want to say bravo, hooray, and huzzah to everyone who supports Town Hall Theater. Without our members, this show wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go on. Ticket sales only pay for a fraction of what it takes to run a theater, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our members who underwrite our terrific variety of programming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; plays, dances, operas, art, kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shows, films, classes, musicals, and everything else that we offer. THT Members, you may think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re behind the scenes, but to us youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the real stars. Thank you. $QRQ\PRXV  Â&#x2021;+DUULV -DQ$EERWWÂ&#x2021;6WHSKHQ .DWKHULQH$EERWWÂ&#x2021;$UQROG 0LOGUHG$EHOVRQÂ&#x2021;'RQDOG$EHOVRQ -RVHSK(YHUHWWÂ&#x2021;/RUUDLQH-$EUDPVRQÂ&#x2021;6X]DQQH%$OOHQÂ&#x2021;&RQUDG .DWK\$PEUHWWHÂ&#x2021;:LOOLDP -XQH $QGHUVRQÂ&#x2021;'DYLG 3DW$QGHUVRQÂ&#x2021;%HQ 6XVDQ$QGHUVRQ5D\Â&#x2021;%DUEDUD *OHQQ$QGUHVÂ&#x2021;'DYLG %REELH$QGUHZVÂ&#x2021;%UDG$UPVWURQJ /XF\0F.HRQÂ&#x2021;'RQ$UQROGÂ&#x2021;6DUDK$VKHDQG7RP'XQQHÂ&#x2021;&ODLUH $ODQ$\HU -DVRQ 1LQD%DFRQÂ&#x2021;'LDQD &KDUOHV%DLQÂ&#x2021;%UXFH%DNHU 1DQFLH'XQQÂ&#x2021;'RXJ /LVD%DNHUÂ&#x2021;-RDQ7%DNHUÂ&#x2021;3ULVFLOOD%DNHUÂ&#x2021;'RQ 5KRQGD%DOORXÂ&#x2021;(OOHQ%DUEHUD-HQQLIHU%DUNHUÂ&#x2021;,UHQH (G%DUQDÂ&#x2021;.DUHQ -XG %DUWOHWWÂ&#x2021;-RH 0DUWKD%DUWRQ5LYHUDÂ&#x2021;0HJDQ%DWWH\ *HRUJH7RGGÂ&#x2021;&DURO\Q%DXVFKÂ&#x2021;0LFKHOH %UXFH%D\OLVVÂ&#x2021;7RP 'RULH%HFKWHOÂ&#x2021;%LOO &ROHHQ%HFNÂ&#x2021;*HRUJH 3DXOD%HOOHURVHÂ&#x2021;'DYLG (ODLQH%HQHGLFWÂ&#x2021;5D\PRQG 6KLUOH\%HQVRQÂ&#x2021;+DQQDK (ULF%HQ]Â&#x2021;0DUN 1DQF\%HQ]Â&#x2021;$OLFH -RKQ%HUQLQJKDXVHQÂ&#x2021;-RKQ $QQD%HW]Â&#x2021;$OH[ 5HEHFFD%HW]Â&#x2021;7RP 'RURWKHD%H\HUÂ&#x2021;-RVHSKLQH%LUQEDXPÂ&#x2021;&UDZIRUG /\QQ%ODJGHQÂ&#x2021;5HED% %ODLUÂ&#x2021;-HQQLIHU (ULN%OHLFKÂ&#x2021;%DUEDUD%HQWOH\%ORGJHWWÂ&#x2021;3DWULFLD%RHUDÂ&#x2021;-DPHV .ULVVD%ROWRQÂ&#x2021;%ROWRQ6XOOLYDQ)XQGÂ&#x2021;-HQQLIHU9RONHUW%RRNHUÂ&#x2021;/LQGL%RUWQH\ -HUU\6KHGGÂ&#x2021;$QG\ (OL]DEHWK%RXUGRQÂ&#x2021;6DUDK%RXUQH +RZDUG:LGHOLW]Â&#x2021;*D\O0%UDLVWHGÂ&#x2021;3DWULFLD(%UDNHOH\Â&#x2021;3HWHU 'U³-RG\´%UDNHOH\Â&#x2021;:RRG\ .DWH%ULJJVÂ&#x2021;$P\%ULJJV 'DQLHO6FKDUVWHLQÂ&#x2021;0DU\/RXLVH *UDKDP%ULJKWÂ&#x2021;/DXULH%ULWWDLQÂ&#x2021;%DUEDUD$%URRNHUÂ&#x2021;%LOO %URRNVÂ&#x2021;%DUEDUD%URVQDQ -RKQ&KDPEHUODLQÂ&#x2021;$QQ%URXVVHDXÂ&#x2021;&ROOHHQ%URZQ 'RXJODV5LFKDUGVÂ&#x2021;-RKQ%URZQÂ&#x2021;$QJHOLND %X]%UXPEDXJKÂ&#x2021;+RZDUG &\QWKLD%UXVKÂ&#x2021;)UDQ%XOOÂ&#x2021;/LQGD%XUGHWWÂ&#x2021;&KXFN 6XH%XUGLFN -XOLD%XWWHUVÂ&#x2021;&KULVWRSKHU 6WHSKDQLH%\HUVÂ&#x2021;%UXFH 6XH%\HUVÂ&#x2021;*HRUJH 6XH&DG\Â&#x2021;%ULDQ&DOKRXQÂ&#x2021;&DURO&DOKRXQÂ&#x2021;:5LFKDUG&DOKRXQÂ&#x2021;%RE 3HQQ\&DPSEHOOÂ&#x2021;3HQQ\&DPSEHOOÂ&#x2021;0DUJDUHW&DURWKHUVÂ&#x2021;3DXO  -RDQQH&DUUDUDÂ&#x2021;*LOOEHUW:&DVVÂ&#x2021;'LFN %DUE&DWOLQÂ&#x2021;&DURO 1LFN&DXVWRQÂ&#x2021;%DUEDUD&KDUODPEÂ&#x2021;&KDUORWWH&KDVHÂ&#x2021;'DYLG&ODUN 'DYLG&ROPDQÂ&#x2021;/\QQ&RHE\ (OHDQRU&RHE\Â&#x2021;6\OYLD&RI¿QÂ&#x2021;5REHUWD /DXUHQFH&RI¿Q +DO /LQGD&RKHQÂ&#x2021;7HG&ROZHOOÂ&#x2021;.HYLQ&RPPLQV (GZDUG5\ENDÂ&#x2021;)DLWK+&RPVWRFNÂ&#x2021;0DU\ 3HWHU&RQORQÂ&#x2021;0XI¿H&RQORQÂ&#x2021;$QQ&RRSHUÂ&#x2021;'LDQD&RWWHUÂ&#x2021;0LWUD $ODQ&RXOWHU3HJJ\&R[Â&#x2021;'LFN&UDPWRQ %HWW\7KXUEHU -RDQ&XUWLVÂ&#x2021;'HQLVH'DOWRQ &KULV3DLQHÂ&#x2021;*HRUJH 'HERUDK'DPHURQÂ&#x2021;$QQH)'DPPÂ&#x2021;&KULVWLDQ -DQLFH'DYLVÂ&#x2021;/LQGD 5LFKDUG'D\EHOOÂ&#x2021;/\Q 3HWHU'H*UDIIÂ&#x2021;$GULHQQH %RE'H/DQH\Â&#x2021;,UHQH'HQLV%HQMDPLQ'HSSPDQ /HVOH\%HQZDUHÂ&#x2021;:DOWHU 0DU\$QQ'HYHUHOOÂ&#x2021;$QJHOLTXH'HYRVWÂ&#x2021;9LFWRULD'H:LQGÂ&#x2021;0DJQD 'DYLG'RGJHÂ&#x2021;(PPLH 6WHSKHQ'RQDGLRÂ&#x2021;0LOHV'RQDKXHÂ&#x2021;5REHUW'RQQLV 3KRHEH%DUDVKÂ&#x2021;*HRUJH:'RUVH\ *DOH0 %XUQVÂ&#x2021;3DP 6WHYH'RXJODVVÂ&#x2021;(XJHQLH'R\OH 6DPXHO%XUUÂ&#x2021;6XVDQ5RQH\'UHQQDQÂ&#x2021;0XUUD\ &HFHOLD'U\Â&#x2021;5REHUW $QLWD'XFORVÂ&#x2021;'ZLJKW -XG\'XQQLQJÂ&#x2021;0DUJDUHW -LP(DJDQÂ&#x2021;'LQD(GHOPDQÂ&#x2021;-XOLD$OYDUH] %LOO (LFKQHUÂ&#x2021;%UHQGD(OOLVÂ&#x2021;&HFLOLD(OZHUWÂ&#x2021;-RKQ $P\(PHUVRQÂ&#x2021;5LFKDUG *OHQQD(PLORÂ&#x2021;0LFKDHO3DUHWWL (OL]DEHWK(QGLFRWWÂ&#x2021;'DQD 0LFKDHO(QJHOÂ&#x2021;(QLG(QJOHUÂ&#x2021;'LFN -DFNLH(QJOLVKÂ&#x2021;-RKQ 1DQF\(ZHQÂ&#x2021;6\OYLD+ (ZHUWV Â&#x2021;
