NEW Â HAVEN Â â€” Â Beverly Â Mar-Â shall Â Landon Â and Â her Â kin Â go Â back Â a Â long Â way Â in Â New Â Haven. Â She Â and Â family Â members Â gathered Â at Â the Â Fitts/Farr Â homestead Â at Â 730 Â River Â Road Â on Â June Â 5 Â to Â celebrate Â owner-Â ship Â of Â the Â stately Â white Â farmhouse Â for Â exactly Â 200 Â years. Landonâ€™s Â great-Âgreat-Âgreat-Âgreat-Â grandfather Â Simon Â Farr Â purchased Â the Â property Â from Â Ruloff Â Law-Â rence, Â who Â lived Â in Â Middlebury, Â for Â $3,000. Â This Â very Â special Â Two Â Century Â Celebration Â included Â Landonâ€™s Â children, Â Cynthia Â Graham, Â Tracy Â Longchamp, Â Christopher Â Landon, Â Billi Â Jo Â Whitehill Â and Â Lou-ÂBea Â Landon-ÂForbes, Â together Â with Â their Â spouses Â and Â nearly Â all Â of Â her Â dozen Â grandchildren. Â They Â joined Â in Â a Â family-Âstyle Â picnic Â on Â the Â 200-Âyear-Â old Â property Â in Â a Â birthday Â party Â that Â included Â a Â special Â cake. Â Landon Â prepared Â individual Â books Â for Â her Â children Â giving Â the Â history Â of Â the Â property Â including Â photos Â of Â build-Â ings, Â a Â landscape Â map Â and Â family Â
history Â over Â the Â years. The Â present Â residence Â was Â built Â about Â 1830 Â and Â extensive Â repairs Â were Â later Â done Â including Â clap-Â boards Â and Â new Â windows Â with Â the Â addition Â of Â two Â front Â piazzas Â hap-Â pening Â in Â 1903, Â according Â to Â the Â news Â article Â found Â in Â the Â Middle-Â bury Â Register. Â A Â phone Â was Â in-Â stalled Â in Â the Â farm Â house Â about Â July Â 17, Â 1903, Â according Â to Â another Â news Â article. Electricity Â was Â installed Â in Â 1927 Â and Â plumbing Â also Â arrived Â in Â May Â of Â that Â same Â year. Â Insulation Â was Â com-Â pleted Â Aug. Â 31 Â of Â 1942 Â by Â the Â Eagle Â Rock Â Wool Â Insulation Â Company Â of Â 9HUPRQWDFFRUGLQJWRDFHUWLÂżFDWH Beverlyâ€™s Â father Â added Â a Â new Â hot Â water Â heating Â system Â throughout Â the Â house Â in Â the Â fall Â of Â 1956. In Â 1950 Â a Â hurricane Â caused Â wind Â damage Â to Â the Â horse Â barn Â roof, Â and Â made Â the Â storage Â barn Â a Â total Â wreck. Â The Â grain Â barn Â came Â off Â its Â founda-Â tion Â and Â the Â young Â cattle Â barn Â was Â heavily Â damaged. Many Â births, Â marriages, Â deaths, Â
anniversaries, Â services, Â meetings Â and Â other Â celebrations Â have Â been Â hosted Â or Â happened Â over Â these Â 200 Â years. Â Much Â happiness Â has Â thrived Â here, Â including Â one Â very Â special Â de-Â livery Â of Â a Â Shetland Â pony Â to Â three Â little Â Fitts Â girls Â by Â Santa Â Claus;Íž Â they Â found Â the Â little Â pony Â inside Â their Â liv-Â ing Â room Â tied Â to Â the Â front Â door Â knob! Â One Â other Â notable Â event Â at Â the Â homestead Â was Â the Â delivery Â of Â a Â baby Â in Â January Â of Â 1956. Â The Â father Â and Â his Â wife Â became Â stuck Â in Â the Â snow Â nearby Â while Â on Â their Â way Â to Â the Â hospital, Â and Â they Â came Â to Â the Â house Â for Â shelter, Â where Â the Â father Â delivered Â his Â child. Blanche Â Fitts Â (Beverlyâ€™s Â grand-Â mother) Â used Â to Â take Â boarders Â at Â the Â family Â homestead, Â which Â was Â then Â called Â Crystal Â Spring Â Farm. Â To Â this Â very Â day, Â that Â same Â spring Â supplies Â the Â homestead Â and Â those Â driving Â by Â the Â residence Â may Â observe Â the Â grav-Â LW\RYHUĂ€RZRIWKHVSULQJDVLWVSXUWV up Â into Â the Â air Â just Â east Â of Â the Â house.

Letâ€™s Â see Â how Â gas Â stacks Â up The Â request Â by Â a Â few Â members Â of Â the Â Addison Â County Â legislative Â delega-Â tion Â to Â have Â the Â Public Â Service Â Department Â prepare Â a Â study Â on Â the Â economic Â and Â environmental Â cost Â of Â two Â proposed Â Vermont Â Gas Â Systems Â pipelines Â through Â the Â county Â is Â right Â on Â target, Â though, Â perhaps, Â a Â few Â months Â tardy. Â The Â charge Â to Â the Â PSD Â is Â to Â provide Â â€œa Â full, Â least-Âcost Â analysis, Â on Â a Â life-Â cycle Â basisâ€? Â of Â the Â pipelines Â compared Â to Â two Â other Â options: Â maintaining Â the Â VWDWXVTXRRUGHOLYHULQJOLTXLÂżHGQDWXUDOJDVWR$GGLVRQ&RXQW\EXVLQHVVHV and Â letting Â residents Â continue Â with Â the Â fuel Â sources Â they Â have. Â A Â least-Âcost Â analysis Â on Â a Â life-Âcycle Â basis Â should Â cover Â the Â gamut Â of Â ex-Â SHQVHVIURPH[WUDFWLRQWRGHOLYHU\WRIXHOHIÂżFLHQF\DWWKHSRLQWRIFRQVXPS-Â tion. Â That Â applies Â to Â the Â economics Â of Â the Â type Â of Â fuel Â used Â as Â well Â as Â to Â the Â environmental Â impact Â of Â the Â fuel. Â Of Â particular Â interest Â is Â the Â amount Â of Â pollution, Â particularly Â the Â release Â of Â carbon Â dioxide Â in Â the Â fracking Â process Â used Â to Â extract Â natural Â gas, Â caused Â by Â the Â escape Â of Â methane Â gas Â at Â the Â well-Âhead. Â According Â to Â a Â 2011 Â Cornell Â study Â re-Â cently Â being Â cited Â by Â the Â Conservation Â Law Â Foundation, Â there Â is Â an Â increase Â in Â global Â warming Â pollution Â from Â natural Â gas Â use Â because Â of Â methane Â emissions Â in Â the Â extraction Â process. Â The Â study Â was Â used Â by Â CLF Â to Â suggest Â that Â most Â of Â the Â natural Â gas Â used Â in Â the Â Addison Â pipelines Â would Â come Â from Â gas Â extracted Â through Â a Â fracking Â process Â â€” Â a Â hypothetical Â assumption, Â at Â best. The Â rub Â will Â come Â from Â applying Â the Â same Â standards Â to Â fuel Â oil, Â then Â add-Â ing Â the Â pollution Â required Â from Â transportation Â via Â train Â or Â truck Â to Â the Â site Â of Â distribution, Â most Â often Â requiring Â delivery Â to Â a Â central Â station Â or Â several, Â UHIXHOLQJVPDOOHUWUXFNVDQGWKHQGHOLYHU\WRWKHÂżQDOGHVWLQDWLRQ*HWWLQJDQ exact Â comparison Â wonâ€™t Â be Â easy. 6WLOOZKDWÂśVJRRGDERXWWKHUHTXHVWRIWKH36'LVWKDWFRQĂ€LFWLQJWHVWLPRQ\ PDNHV LW YHU\ GLIÂżFXOW WR GHWHUPLQH ZKDWÂśV IDFWXDO 9HUPRQW *DV 6\VWHPV cites Â studies Â showing Â natural Â gas Â is Â about Â 55 Â percent Â less Â expensive Â than Â pro-Â pane Â and Â about Â 40-Â50 Â percent Â cheaper Â than Â fuel Â oil, Â while Â producing Â 25 Â per-Â cent Â or Â so Â less Â carbon Â dioxide Â pollution Â at Â the Â point Â of Â consumption Â compared Â to Â fuel Â oil. Â The Â Cornell Â study Â would Â seemingly Â refute Â the Â environmental Â as-Â pect Â of Â that Â information Â by Â suggesting Â the Â carbon Â dioxide Â pollution Â is Â actually Â worse Â if Â considered Â from Â a Â wholistic Â perspective. Â Furthermore, Â that Â the Â cost Â to Â society Â of Â that Â added Â pollution Â actually Â makes Â natural Â gas Â more Â expensive Â to Â consume Â than Â natural Â gas. Â That Â would Â be Â news Â to Â the Â fuel Â industry, Â and Â Ă€LHVLQWKHIDFHRIFRQYHQWLRQDOZLVGRPEXWLILWÂśVWUXHLWZRXOGEHLPSRUWDQW for Â the Â PSD Â and Â PSB Â to Â know, Â as Â well Â as Â Vermont Â residents. VGS Â welcomes Â the Â study. Â Theyâ€™re Â convinced Â the Â facts Â will Â show Â that Â natu-Â ral Â gas Â is Â less Â expensive Â and Â less Â harmful Â to Â the Â environment. Â If Â so, Â will Â op-Â ponents Â concede Â and Â agree Â that Â the Â expansion Â of Â natural Â gas Â into Â Rutland Â County Â is Â in Â the Â stateâ€™s Â public Â good? Â Most Â likely Â not. Â Thatâ€™s Â because Â no Â matter Â the Â short-Âterm Â facts, Â even Â in Â a Â life-Âcycle Â cost Â analysis, Â opponents Â maintain Â that Â consuming Â more Â natural Â gas Â moves Â Vermont Â and Â the Â country Â in Â the Â wrong Â direction Â in Â terms Â of Â reducing Â carbon Â dioxide Â emissions. Â They Â might Â be Â right, Â but Â even Â that Â is Â not Â a Â sure Â thing. Â +HUHÂśVWKHORJLFQDWXUDOJDVZRXOGEHMXVWRQHDYDLODEOHVRXUFHRIIXHOWR use. Â Competition Â breeds Â lower Â prices. Â The Â introduction Â of Â a Â new Â fuel Â source Â into Â the Â economy, Â at Â the Â very Â least, Â puts Â downward Â pressure Â on Â prices, Â and Â only Â increases Â the Â consumption Â of Â that Â fuel Â if Â the Â facts Â determine Â it Â is Â the Â best Â value Â for Â the Â dollar. In Â terms Â of Â the Â environment, Â if Â this Â country Â advances Â enough Â in Â our Â think-Â ing Â that Â we Â adopt Â a Â carbon Â tax, Â it Â could Â be Â that Â renewables Â become Â less Â ex-Â pensive Â to Â use Â and Â their Â proliferation Â (wind Â turbines, Â in Â particular) Â would Â be Â the Â next Â topic Â of Â concern: Â likely Â the Â spoilage Â of Â the Â stateâ€™s Â visual Â beauty. Â Even Â so, Â current Â science Â suggests Â that Â neither Â the Â state Â nor Â the Â country Â has Â enough Â thermal Â energy Â to Â power Â our Â industries Â (renewable Â energy Â doesnâ€™t Â always Â provide Â an Â adequate Â source Â of Â heat), Â so Â current Â capacity Â is Â still Â needed Â to Â pro-Â vide Â an Â adequate Â load. Â Twenty Â years Â from Â now Â it Â could Â be Â a Â different Â story, Â but Â right Â now Â there Â isnâ€™t Â enough Â fuel Â from Â renewables Â to Â turn Â the Â wheels Â of Â business, Â and Â surely Â nobody Â is Â advocating Â a Â retreat Â from Â power Â sources Â that Â SURYLGHWKHFULWLFDO\HWVFDUFHLQGXVWULDOMREVWKHVWDWHVWLOOUHWDLQV 0RUHRYHUIURPDEXVLQHVVSHUVSHFWLYHLWÂśVHDVLHUWREHPRUHĂ€H[LEOHLQRXU use Â of Â energy Â if Â weâ€™re Â operating Â from Â a Â strong Â economy Â with Â an Â abundance Â of Â fuel Â options.

Middlebury Â offers Â an Â ideal Â setting A Â fellow Â publisher Â from Â my Â home Â state Â of Â Kansas Â stopped Â by Â this Â weekend Â for Â dinner Â at Â our Â Lake Â Dunmore Â home. Â He Â sold Â his Â three Â papers Â back Â in Â 2007 Â while Â in Â his Â late Â 50s, Â and Â he Â and Â his Â wife Â have Â been Â shopping Â ever Â since. Â Not Â for Â goods Â to Â consume, Â but Â for Â a Â new Â place Â to Â live. Â Theyâ€™ve Â shopped Â California, Â found Â the Â weather Â delight-Â ful Â around Â the Â Santa Â Barbara Â area, Â but Â housing Â and Â living Â expenses Â in Â the Â stratosphere. Â Ditto Â the Â Bay Â Area Â around Â San Â Francisco. Â Theyâ€™ve Â shopped Â Oregon Â (from Â Bend Â to Â the Â rugged Â coast Â line), Â the Â spectacular Â northwest Â corner Â of Â Washington Â state, Â up Â and Â down Â the Â Rockies, Â even Â Las Â Vegas Â â€” Â great Â deals Â on Â houses, Â they Â said, Â but Â the Â underbelly Â of Â that Â city Â and Â the Â surrounding Â area Â is Â what Â you Â might Â By Angelo expect. Â Lynn Theyâ€™ve Â been Â to Â the Â Carolinas, Â Vir-Â ginias, Â parts Â of Â the Â East Â Coast, Â Wis-Â consin-ÂMinnesota Â areas Â (Madison Â was Â a Â consideration, Â they Â said, Â but Â the Â politics Â are Â not Â what Â they Â were Â in Â the Â 1970s). Â And Â theyâ€™ve Â been Â to Â Maine, Â New Â Hampshire, Â Massachusetts Â and Â several Â parts Â of Â New Â York, Â including Â the Â city. Â Throughout Â the Â years, Â what Â theyâ€™ve Â learned Â â€” Â and Â al-Â ways Â knew Â â€” Â is Â thereâ€™s Â no Â perfect Â spot. Â Each Â place Â has Â its Â attributes Â and Â detractions. Â Picking Â a Â home Â town, Â in Â their Â circumstance, Â is Â somewhat Â like Â a Â marriage: Â You Â need Â com-Â patibility, Â but Â most Â important Â is Â trying Â to Â determine Â if Â the Â community Â you Â pick Â will Â result Â in Â a Â relationship Â in Â which Â it Â feels Â good Â to Â give Â back. This Â visit Â was Â their Â third Â to Â Middlebury, Â a Â town Â they Â had Â considered Â several Â years Â ago Â (and Â which Â is Â still Â in Â the Â running), Â but Â it Â hasnâ€™t Â been Â so Â compelling Â to Â call Â off Â their Â search Â and Â settle Â in. Â At Â least, Â not Â yet. Â In Â the Â course Â of Â our Â conversation Â that Â evening, Â which Â OLQJHUHGXQWLOMXVWSDVWZHFRPSDUHGQRWHVRISODFHVZH had Â all Â lived Â and Â how Â each Â stacked Â up Â in Â our Â hierarchy Â of Â favorites. Â We Â boasted Â of Â the Â college Â and Â its Â willingness Â to Â
share Â resources Â (auditing Â some Â classes Â and Â lectures, Â the Â art Â museum, Â sports Â facilities, Â nearby Â skiing). Â We Â highlighted Â the Â Town Â Hall Â Theater, Â the Â Opera Â Company Â of Â Middlebury, Â DQGDQDFWLYHFRPPXQLW\WKHDWHURUJDQL]DWLRQ:HWDONHGRI RXUWKULYLQJEXVLQHVVRUJDQL]DWLRQWKH%HWWHU0LGGOHEXU\ Partnership) Â and Â of Â an Â active Â chamber, Â and Â the Â productive Â and Â symbiotic Â town-Âgown Â relationship. Â My Â daughter Â and Â her Â beau Â gushed Â about Â the Â number Â of Â younger Â adults Â taking Â over Â leadership Â positions Â in Â the Â town Â and Â how Â active Â the Â young Â professional Â groups, Â including Â an Â active Â group Â of Â telecommuters, Â could Â become. Â They Â seemed Â more Â impressed Â with Â this Â in-Â ner Â aspect Â of Â Middlebury Â than Â what Â they Â had Â seen Â from Â the Â outside. The Â obvious Â question Â for Â them, Â after Â WKHLU ÂżYH\HDU VHDUFK ZDV MXVW ZKDW these Â two Â were Â searching Â for. To Â that Â query, Â their Â answer Â was Â pret-Â W\ÂżUP+HÂśVGUDZQWRWKHPRXQWDLQV more Â than Â to Â the Â ocean;Íž Â they Â want Â to Â be Â relatively Â near Â a Â big Â city;Íž Â a Â college Â town Â is Â preferred;Íž Â they Â want Â the Â ability Â to Â recreate Â outdoors Â (hiking, Â running, Â biking, Â snowshoeing, Â cross Â country Â skiing, Â kayaking Â or Â canoeing Â rivers Â and Â lakes);Íž Â a Â good Â book Â store Â and Â a Â com-Â munity Â thatâ€™s Â engaged Â in Â thoughtful Â discourse Â (they Â love Â to Â read);Íž Â he Â doesnâ€™t Â like Â the Â heat Â (so Â rule Â out Â the Â South-Â HDVWRU6RXWKZHVW 7KH\ÂśUHDFWLYHDQGÂżWDQGVKHZKRÂśV younger), Â wants Â to Â get Â back Â in Â the Â workforce Â and Â pursue Â QRQSURÂżWZRUNWKDWKHOSVRWKHUV Voila, Â we Â thought. Â Everything Â theyâ€™re Â looking Â for Â is Â right Â here Â in Â Middlebury. Â We Â assured Â them Â as Â much Â and Â then Â addressed Â a Â couple Â of Â myths Â they Â were Â harboring: Â the Â <DQNHHVHQVHRIEHLQJDELWVWDQGRIÂżVKDQGXQZHOFRPLQJ the Â unending Â winters Â with Â bone-Âchilling Â cold;Íž Â the Â mythic Â isolation Â in Â rural Â communities;Íž Â the Â lack Â of Â access Â to Â the Â cultural Â ameneties Â of Â a Â large Â city.

You Â know Â Congress Â is Â broken Â when Â 80 Â to Â 90 Â percent Â of Â the Â public Â sup-Â ports Â policies Â that Â keep Â interest Â rates Â on Â student Â loans Â where Â they Â are, Â rather Â than Â doubling Â from Â 3.4 Â percent Â to Â 6.8 Â percent, Â and Â yet Â the Â Republican Â House Â blocked Â efforts Â by Â the Â Democratic Â Senate Â to Â maintain Â the Â status Â quo. Â As Â of Â Monday, Â the Â rates Â doubled;Íž Â the Â government Â will Â pocket Â the Â windfall. 7KH ORDQV LQYROYHG IDOO XQGHU WKH VXEVLGL]HG 6WDIIRUG ORDQ SURJUDP DQG have Â been Â one Â of Â the Â least Â expensive Â forms Â of Â loans Â available Â to Â students. Â The Â maximum Â amount Â a Â student Â can Â borrow Â through Â the Â program Â is Â $23,000. Â If Â you Â double Â the Â rates Â on Â the Â maximum Â amount Â of Â the Â loan, Â the Â increase Â in Â in-Â terest Â payments Â is Â about Â $4,500. Â At Â that Â amount, Â it Â is Â not Â a Â life-Âor-Âdeath Â issue. Â Itâ€™s Â a Â hardship, Â but Â college Â students Â with Â these Â loans Â will Â survive. And Â yet Â the Â result Â is Â galling. Â Nationally, Â the Â total Â amount Â of Â student Â loans Â has Â increased Â from Â $550 Â billion Â in Â 2007, Â the Â beginning Â of Â the Â recession, Â to Â $1 Â trillion Â earlier Â this Â year.

On Â June Â 22, Â my Â wife Â and Â I Â went Â to Â the Â Town Â Hall Â Theaterâ€™s Â Fifth Â $QQLYHUVDU\*DODDQGZHUHDPD]HG by Â the Â range Â of Â local Â and Â regional Â talented Â represented Â in Â the Â perfor-Â mances. Â Unfortunately, Â we Â also Â experienced Â obnoxious Â rudeness Â of Â a Â sort Â we Â had Â never Â encountered Â at Â a Â cultural Â event. We Â were Â seated Â in Â front Â of Â and Â below Â two Â women Â whose Â idea Â of Â vigorously Â approving Â a Â song Â or Â dance Â was Â to Â whoop Â so Â loudly Â it Â hurt Â our Â ears. Â When Â I Â turned Â around Â and Â explained Â this, Â I Â got Â the Â reply Â â€œWear Â earplugs!â€? Â My Â wife Â turned Â and Â said Â â€œWe Â are.â€? Again Â and Â again Â she Â had Â to Â put Â her Â hands Â over Â her Â ears.

Â The Â younger Â woman Â behind Â my Â wife Â said Â with Â pride, Â â€œIâ€™m Â probably Â louder Â than Â she Â is!â€? When Â it Â ended, Â the Â younger Â woman Â asked Â me, Â â€œHavenâ€™t Â you Â ever Â been Â to Â a Â theater? Â You Â have Â to Â expect Â it Â to Â be Â loud Â at Â a Â theater.â€? Â As Â a Â matter Â of Â fact Â I Â have Â probably Â written Â reviews Â for Â more Â produc-Â tions Â than Â this Â person Â has Â ever Â seen, Â all Â through Â southwestern Â Vermont, Â and Â in Â many Â of Â those Â venues Â such Â loudness Â and Â discourtesy Â would Â have Â brought Â immediate Â atten-Â tion Â from Â the Â ushers. Â Sounds Â loud Â enough Â to Â hurt Â are Â loud Â enough Â to Â cause Â damage, Â and Â the Â right Â to Â free Â speech Â doesnâ€™t Â apply Â any Â more Â than Â it Â does Â if Â someone Â wants Â to Â yell Â â€œFireâ€? Â in Â a Â crowded Â theater. Like Â the Â Town Â Hall Â Theater Â audience, Â the Â volunteer Â ushers Â are Â PRVWO\VHQLRUFLWL]HQVDQGFDQÂśWEH expected Â to Â monitor Â everything.

A Â homeâ€™s Â vantage Â points Â are Â one Â of Â its Â most Â universally Â en-Â joyable Â attributesâ€”but Â when Â not Â considered Â carefully, Â they Â can Â be Â a Â sore Â spot Â that Â causes Â â€œbuyerâ€™s Â remorseâ€?. Â When Â viewing Â proper-Â ties, Â consider Â whether Â the Â win-Â dows Â are Â large Â and Â well Â placed, Â if Â the Â common Â rooms Â are Â designed Â with Â the Â view Â in Â mind, Â and Â if Â the Â best Â views Â of Â the Â house Â are Â located Â in Â areas Â where Â they Â are Â most Â likely Â to Â be Â enjoyedâ€”after Â all, Â a Â gorgeous Â view Â is Â wasted Â if Â itâ€™s Â only Â seen Â from Â the Â bathroom Â or Â laundry Â area! Â Be Â mindful Â of Â which Â windows Â in Â a Â home Â face Â east Â and Â west, Â considering Â that Â those Â rooms Â will Â have Â a Â beauti-Â ful Â view Â of Â the Â sunrise Â and Â sun-Â set, Â but Â will Â also Â require Â window Â treatments Â to Â ensure Â comfort Â and Â functionality Â when Â the Â sun Â is Â at Â its Â peak. Â Consider Â how Â close Â to Â ma-Â jor Â roads, Â railways Â or Â airports Â the Â home Â is Â located, Â and Â whether Â the Â ZLQGRZV IDFH QRLV\ WUDIÂżFÂżOOHG VWUHHWV:LOOURDGUDLORUDLUWUDIÂżF be Â a Â source Â of Â noise Â pollution Â or Â obscure Â the Â view Â from Â inside Â the Â home? Â Â Whether Â youâ€™re Â consider-Â ing Â a Â waterfront Â villa, Â a Â mountain Â cottage Â or Â a Â suburban Â single-Âfami-Â ly Â home, Â make Â sure Â that Â your Â view Â is Â clear Â and Â unobstructed. Â Can Â you Â see Â the Â water, Â the Â forest Â or Â the Â mountain, Â or Â are Â your Â windows Â facing Â your Â neighborâ€™s Â driveway? Â Walk Â through Â the Â home Â at Â dif-Â ferent Â times Â of Â day, Â making Â sure Â to Â evaluate Â whether Â the Â outdoor Â areas, Â patios, Â porches Â and Â decks Â provide Â an Â open Â air Â venue Â for Â re-Â laxation, Â enjoyment Â and Â the Â view Â thatâ€™s Â right Â for Â you!

Â Bohjalian Â said. Â â€œAnd Â we Â saw Â this Â old Â granary Â â€” Â which Â goes Â back Â WRWKHWKFHQWXU\Â˛WKDWRQFHKDGD massive Â tower. Â And Â it Â was Â still Â beau-Â tiful Â but Â the Â tower Â is Â now Â only Â a Â few Â stories Â high. Â And Â my Â friend Â looked Â at Â me Â and Â he Â said, Â â€˜The Â Nazis Â blew Â that Â up. Â It Â was Â once Â much Â higher.â€™ â€œAnd Â I Â said, Â â€˜The Â Nazis Â were Â in Â Montisi?â€™â€? Over Â the Â coming Â weeks, Â Leven-Â dusky Â told Â Bohjalian Â all Â about Â the Â German Â presence Â in Â Italy Â during Â World Â War Â II. Â â€œHe Â would Â tell Â me Â one Â â€˜Nazis Â in Â Tuscanyâ€™ Â atrocity Â story Â after Â another.â€? â€œWhenever Â we Â think Â of Â Tuscany Â now, Â we Â think Â of Â Chianti Â and Â sun-Â Ă€RZHUV DQG JRDW FKHHVH DQG ELF\FOH tours,â€? Â Bohjalian Â said. Â â€œBut Â for Â eight Â PRQWKV LQ EHDXWLIXO 7XVFDQ\
was Â an Â innermost Â ring Â of Â Danteâ€™s Â in-Â ferno Â â€Ś Â (the Â Nazis) Â had Â a Â scorched Â earth Â policy, Â as Â they Â were Â trying Â to Â hold Â off Â the Â Allies, Â plus Â it Â was Â a Â small Â civil Â war Â with Â the Â Italian Â blackshirts Â and Â the Â Italian Â partisans Â at Â each Â oth-Â erâ€™s Â throats.â€? But Â for Â the Â novelist, Â the Â ultimate Â beauty Â was Â in Â the Â irony Â that Â despite Â the Â deliberate Â attempts Â to Â destroy Â it, Â beauty Â had Â prevailed Â against Â war. â€œBack Â to Â that Â granary, Â they Â tried Â to Â blow Â it Â up Â so Â it Â couldnâ€™t Â be Â used Â as Â a Â spotting Â tower,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œIt Â was Â 600 Â years Â old Â but Â it Â was Â so Â well Â built Â that Â part Â of Â it Â was Â still Â standing Â and Â it Â was, Â in Â fact, Â now Â a Â beautiful Â bed Â and Â breakfast. Â And Â thatâ€™s Â when Â I Â realized, Â this Â is Â my Â â€˜Romeo Â and Â Juliet.â€™â€? â€œIt Â was Â a Â rundown Â pile Â of Â rubble Â and Â they Â rebuilt Â it Â into Â a Â beautiful Â villa Â where Â they Â live Â and Â work Â now. But, Â as Â he Â admits, Â â€œâ€˜Romeo Â and Â Julietâ€™ Â is Â a Â tough Â act Â to Â follow. Â And Â maybe Â thatâ€™s Â why Â the Â book Â evolved Â from Â beyond Â a Â pure Â reimagining Â of Â two Â young, Â doomed Â lovers.â€? Bohjalian Â certainly Â added Â more Â than Â a Â few Â twists Â and Â turns Â of Â his Â own Â â€” Â â€œThe Â Light Â in Â the Â Ruinsâ€? Â takes Â the Â â€œdoomedâ€? Â part Â of Â the Â equation Â and Â
runs Â with Â it. Â Spliced Â into Â the Â scenes Â of Â the Â young Â couple Â falling Â in Â love Â is Â a Â grisly Â mur-Â GHUP\VWHU\VWRU\VHW\HDUVODWHULQ Florence, Â as Â a Â serial Â killer Â targets Â the Â surviving Â members Â of Â the Â Rosati Â fam-Â ily Â one Â by Â one. Â This Â narrative Â thread Â focuses Â on Â a Â female Â investigator Â with Â her Â own Â searing Â wartime Â memories, Â assigned Â to Â the Â Rosati Â case. The Â author Â is Â sympathetic Â to Â his Â FKDUDFWHUVHYHQDOORIWKHLUĂ€DZVÂ˛ HYHQ ZKHQ WKHLU Ă€DZV DUH PRUDOO\ reprehensible, Â or Â downright Â evil. â€œWhen Â I Â begin Â my Â books Â all Â I Â have Â is Â a Â voice,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œAs Â Iâ€™m Â writing Â a Â book, Â little Â by Â little Â I Â understand Â who Â WKH\ DUH DQG EHJLQ WR DGG Ă€HVK DQG bones Â to Â them.â€? It Â is Â those Â characters Â and Â their Â moti-Â vations Â that Â holds Â the Â reader Â in Â a Â jour-Â ney Â through Â the Â rich Â landscapes Â and Â leap-Âfrogging Â in Â time Â that Â â€œThe Â Light Â in Â the Â Ruinsâ€? Â depicts. For Â all Â that Â a Â major Â plotline Â centers Â of Â a Â detective Â story, Â Bohjalian, Â for Â his Â part, Â does Â not Â think Â of Â his Â most Â recent Â novel Â as Â a Â murder Â mystery. Â He Â loves Â the Â way Â one Â reviewer Â characterized Â it Â â€” Â not Â as Â a Â â€œwhodunitâ€? Â but Â as Â a Â â€œwhydunit.â€?

also Â be Â able Â to Â put Â some Â of Â Vermont Â Gasâ€™ Â marketing Â assertions Â to Â the Â test Â â€” Â such Â as Â its Â claim Â that Â natural Â gas Â is Â currently Â more Â than Â 40 Â percent Â cheaper Â than Â fuel Â oil. â€œLooking Â at Â alternatives Â canâ€™t Â be Â a Â bad Â thing,â€? Â agreed Â Rep. Â Dave Â Sharpe, Â D-ÂBristol, Â who Â also Â supports Â the Â letter. Sharpe Â is Â particularly Â intrigued Â about Â what Â the Â study Â might Â reveal Â DERXW WKH WUDQVSRUWDWLRQ RI OLTXHÂżHG natural Â gas. Â He Â said Â the Â proposed Â pipeline Â projects Â would Â only Â serve Â the Â most Â densely Â clustered Â neigh-Â borhoods. Â Sharpe Â wants Â to Â see Â if Â the Â DYDLODELOLW\ RI OLTXHÂżHG QDWXUDO JDV could Â be Â a Â money Â saver Â for Â rural Â resi-Â dents Â and Â businesses. Sharpe, Â a Â veteran Â member Â of Â the Â House Â Ways Â and Â Means Â Commit-Â tee, Â is Â also Â exploring Â a Â new Â way Â of Â taxing Â natural Â gas. Â He Â noted Â that Â communities Â that Â host Â natural Â gas Â in-Â frastructure Â receive Â property Â tax Â rev-Â enues Â that Â gradually Â decline Â as Â the Â infrastructure Â depreciates. Â Sharpe Â is Â weighing Â a Â switch Â whereby Â Vermont Â Gas Â would Â be Â taxed Â based Â on Â units Â of Â Â natural Â gas Â it Â dispenses. Â This, Â he Â said, Â is Â how Â nuclear Â power, Â solar Â and Â wind Â projects Â are Â taxed. INFORMATION Â GATHERING Sen. Â Chris Â Bray, Â D-ÂNew Â Haven, Â also Â sees Â the Â study Â as Â an Â information-Â gathering Â tool. Â And Â this Â is Â informa-Â tion Â that Â many Â communities Â within Â the Â pipelinesâ€™ Â paths Â donâ€™t Â have Â the Â time Â or Â resources Â to Â obtain Â on Â their Â own, Â according Â to Â Bray. â€œWeâ€™re Â talking Â about Â a Â $112 Â mil-Â lion Â investment,â€? Â Bray Â said Â of Â the Â combined Â costs Â of Â phases Â one Â and Â two. Â â€œIs Â this Â a Â wise Â investment Â for Â Addison Â County Â and Â Vermont Â to Â make?â€? Recchia Â on Â Monday Â acknowl-Â edged Â receiving Â the Â letter. Â He Â said Â he Â and Â his Â department Â will Â weigh Â the Â request, Â but Â noted Â his Â department Â PXVW IXOÂżOO YDULRXV DVSHFWV RI WKH proposed Â study Â anyway Â as Â part Â of Â the Â PSDâ€™s Â role Â in Â representing Â Vermont-Â ers Â during Â the Â Public Â Service Â Boardâ€™s Â review Â of Â the Â Vermont Â Gas Â applica-Â tion. â€œIâ€™m Â not Â sure Â right Â now Â what Â (as-Â pects Â of Â the Â request) Â can Â be Â done Â in-Â dependent Â of Â the Â docket, Â as Â part Â of Â the Â docket Â or Â as Â evidence Â in Â the Â case Â itself,â€? Â Â Recchia Â said. Â â€œWeâ€™ll Â discuss Â the Â letter Â here Â and Â let Â (the Â signers) Â know Â what Â we Â think Â we Â can Â do.â€? Meanwhile, Â Vermont Â Gas Â spokes-Â man Â Steve Â Wark Â said Â the Â company Â LV FRQÂżGHQW D VWXG\ ZRXOG FRQÂżUP natural Â gas Â to Â be Â cleaner Â and Â more Â cost-Âeffective Â than Â fuel Â oil. Â He Â said Â the Â company Â had Â recently Â com-Â missioned Â an Â independent Â analysis Â of Â the Â Addison Â Natural Â Gas Â Proj-Â ect Â that Â shows Â â€œthe Â 41-Âmile Â project Â ZLOOVLJQLÂżFDQWO\UHGXFHJUHHQKRXVH emissions Â if Â customers Â switch Â from Â heating Â oil Â to Â gas.â€? Â That Â study, Â per-Â IRUPHG E\ HQHUJ\ FRQVXOWLQJ ÂżUP ICF Â International, Â indicated Â that Â the Â life-Âcycle Â greenhouse Â gas Â emissions Â of Â carbon Â dioxide Â and Â methane Â from Â natural Â gas Â are Â 23 Â percent Â lower Â than Â fuel Â oil Â on Â an Â end-Âuse Â basis, Â accord-Â ing Â to Â Wark. â€œThe Â Public Â Service Â Board Â will Â conduct Â an Â independent Â and Â objec-Â tive Â analysis Â based Â on Â facts Â from Â the Â participants Â in Â their Â evidentiary Â pro-Â cess,â€? Â Wark Â said. Â â€œWe Â have Â no Â doubt Â natural Â gas Â will Â continue Â to Â be Â shown Â as Â cleaner Â and Â more Â affordable Â than Â the Â alternatives.â€? :DUN DGGHG WKH XVH RI OLTXHÂżHG natural Â gas Â would Â require Â construc-Â tion Â of Â an Â LNG Â plant Â in Â Middlebury. Â That Â plant, Â he Â said, Â would Â require Â a Â large Â tank Â supplied Â with Â natural Â gas Â trucked Â in Â on Â a Â regular Â basis. â€œSuch Â a Â system Â would Â not Â serve Â homes Â and Â businesses Â outside Â the Â in-Â dustrial Â area,â€? Â Wark Â contended. Editorâ€™s Â note: Â Because Â of Â a Â holi-Â day Â early Â deadline, Â this Â edition Â of Â the Â Independent Â could Â not Â include Â coverage Â of Â a Â Tuesday Â evening Â meet-Â ing Â in Â Shoreham Â where Â the Â pipeline Â proposals Â were Â due Â to Â be Â discussed.
