Family fetes 200 years in home

BEVERLY   LANDON   CELEBRATED   exactly   200   years   of   her   familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   ownership   of   the   Fitts/Farr   home-­ stead   in   New   Haven   on   June   5.   Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   great-­great-­great-­great-­grandfather   Simon   Farr   purchased   the   River  Road  property  for  $3,000. Independent  photo/Trent  Campbell

NEW   HAVEN   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Beverly   Mar-­ shall   Landon   and   her   kin   go   back   a  long  way  in  New  Haven.  She  and   family   members   gathered   at   the   Fitts/Farr   homestead   at   730   River   Road  on  June  5  to  celebrate  owner-­ ship  of  the  stately  white  farmhouse   for  exactly  200  years. Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   great-­great-­great-­great-­ grandfather   Simon   Farr   purchased   the   property   from   Ruloff   Law-­ rence,  who  lived  in  Middlebury,  for   $3,000.   This   very   special ��  Two   Century   Celebration   included   Landonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   children,   Cynthia   Graham,   Tracy   Longchamp,   Christopher   Landon,   Billi   Jo   Whitehill   and   Lou-­Bea   Landon-­Forbes,   together   with   their   spouses  and  nearly  all  of  her  dozen   grandchildren.   They   joined   in   a   family-­style  picnic  on  the  200-­year-­ old  property  in  a  birthday  party  that   included   a   special   cake.   Landon   prepared   individual   books   for   her   children   giving   the   history   of   the   property  including  photos  of  build-­ ings,   a   landscape   map   and   family  

history  over  the  years. The   present   residence   was   built   about   1830   and   extensive   repairs   were   later   done   including   clap-­ boards   and   new   windows   with   the   addition   of   two   front   piazzas   hap-­ pening   in   1903,   according   to   the   news   article   found   in   the   Middle-­ bury   Register.   A   phone   was   in-­ stalled  in  the  farm  house  about  July   17,  1903,  according  to  another  news   article. Electricity   was   installed   in   1927   and  plumbing  also  arrived  in  May  of   that  same  year.  Insulation  was  com-­ pleted  Aug.  31  of  1942  by  the  Eagle   Rock  Wool  Insulation  Company  of   9HUPRQWDFFRUGLQJWRDFHUWLÂżFDWH Beverlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   father   added   a   new   hot   water   heating   system   throughout   the  house  in  the  fall  of  1956. In  1950  a  hurricane  caused  wind   damage  to  the  horse  barn  roof,  and   made  the  storage  barn  a  total  wreck.   The  grain  barn  came  off  its  founda-­ tion   and   the   young   cattle   barn   was   heavily  damaged. Many   births,   marriages,   deaths,  

anniversaries,   services,   meetings   and   other   celebrations   have   been   hosted  or  happened  over  these  200   years.   Much   happiness   has   thrived   here,  including  one  very  special  de-­ livery   of   a   Shetland   pony   to   three   little  Fitts  girls  by  Santa  Claus;Íž  they   found  the  little  pony  inside  their  liv-­ ing  room  tied  to  the  front  door  knob!   One   other   notable   event   at   the   homestead   was   the   delivery   of   a   baby  in  January  of  1956.  The  father   and   his   wife   became   stuck   in   the   snow  nearby  while  on  their  way  to   the   hospital,   and   they   came   to   the   house   for   shelter,   where   the   father   delivered  his  child. Blanche   Fitts   (Beverlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   grand-­ mother)  used  to  take  boarders  at  the   family   homestead,   which   was   then   called  Crystal  Spring  Farm.  To  this   very  day,  that  same  spring  supplies   the  homestead  and  those  driving  by   the  residence  may  observe  the  grav-­ LW\RYHUĂ&#x20AC;RZRIWKHVSULQJDVLWVSXUWV up  into  the  air  just  east  of  the  house.

The   last-­resort   program,   which   provides   limited   emergency   motel   vouchers   for   elderly   and   disabled   homeless   individuals   and   home-­ less   families   with   young   children,   continues   to   experience   cuts.   This   year,   it   means   many   families   and   individuals   who   previously   quali-­ ¿HGEHFDPHLQHOLJLEOHIRUVHUYLFHV starting  July  1,  and  those  who  still   TXDOL¿HG ZRXOG VHH WKH OHQJWK RI their   motel   stay   drastically   re-­ duced.     A  number  of  local  organizations  

are   working   to   assist   households   experiencing   homelessness;Íž   how-­ HYHUWKHUHLVQRWVXIÂżFLHQWIXQGLQJ to   provide   all   of   them   with   tradi-­ tional   shelter.   Therefore,   HOPE   is   asking   the   community   to   help.   Anyone   who   has   a   clean,   dry   tent   or   sleeping   bag   that   is   going   un-­ used  is  urged  to  donate  it  to  HOPE.   Donations   may   be   dropped   off   at   RetroWorks,   HOPEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   resale   store,   located   in   the   Craven   Center   at   282   Boardman   St.   in   Middlebury,   between   9:30   a.m.   and   4:30   p.m.,   Monday   through   Saturday.   These   donations  are  tax-­deductible  to  the   extent  allowed  by  law.   For   further   information,   call   Sharon   Wickman   or   Jeanne   Mon-­ tross  at  388-­3608.

Vt.  campgrounds  likely  full  on  July  4th By  WILSON  RING MONTPELIER  (AP)  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  The  direc-­ tor   of   the   Vermont   State   Parks   said   he   expects   all   2,100   campsites   at   the   stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  38  campgrounds  will  be  full  for   the  July  Fourth  holiday  weekend. The  Independence  Day  week  tends   to   be   the   busiest   of   the   summer   sea-­ son,  and  this  year  will  be  no  exception   despite  the  increased  precipitation  this   spring  and  early  summer,  Craig  Whip-­ ple  said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  expect  to  be  full  to  capacity,â&#x20AC;?   Whipple  said  Friday. While  the  number  of  visitors  to  the   stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  day-­use  parks  usually  depends   on  the  weather,  many  of  those  intend-­ ing   to   camp   out   make   their   reserva-­ tions  up  to  11  months  in  advance. Last   year,   the   Vermont   State   Park   system   had   920,000   visitors,   a   20-­

year  high. The  state  has  been  working  hard  to   encourage   camping   and   people   have   been  responding,  Whipple  said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A   lot   of   people   are   appreciating   a   resurgence   of   getting   outdoors   and   all  the  values  associated  with  outdoor   recreation,â&#x20AC;?   Whipple   said.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;A   lot   of   parents   are   anxious   to   get   their   kids   outdoors  and  away  from  electronic  at-­ tractions.â&#x20AC;? Whipple  estimated  the  920,000  visi-­ tors  to  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  52  campgrounds  and   day-­use   parks   last   year   contributed   $75  million  to  Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  economy. About   80   percent   of   the   day-­use   visitors  come  from  Vermont,  but  about   55  percent  of  campers  come  from  out   of  state.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  see  how  gas  stacks  up The  request  by  a  few  members  of  the  Addison  County  legislative  delega-­ tion  to  have  the  Public  Service  Department  prepare  a  study  on  the  economic   and   environmental   cost   of   two   proposed   Vermont   Gas   Systems   pipelines   through  the  county  is  right  on  target,  though,  perhaps,  a  few  months  tardy.   The  charge  to  the  PSD  is  to  provide  â&#x20AC;&#x153;a  full,  least-­cost  analysis,  on  a  life-­ cycle  basisâ&#x20AC;?  of  the  pipelines  compared  to  two  other  options:  maintaining  the   VWDWXVTXRRUGHOLYHULQJOLTXLÂżHGQDWXUDOJDVWR$GGLVRQ&RXQW\EXVLQHVVHV and  letting  residents  continue  with  the  fuel  sources  they  have.   A  least-­cost  analysis  on  a  life-­cycle  basis  should  cover  the  gamut  of  ex-­ SHQVHVIURPH[WUDFWLRQWRGHOLYHU\WRIXHOHIÂżFLHQF\DWWKHSRLQWRIFRQVXPS-­ tion.  That  applies  to  the  economics  of  the  type  of  fuel  used  as  well  as  to  the   environmental  impact  of  the  fuel.   Of  particular  interest  is  the  amount  of  pollution,  particularly  the  release  of   carbon  dioxide  in  the  fracking  process  used  to  extract  natural  gas,  caused  by  the   escape  of  methane  gas  at  the  well-­head.  According  to  a  2011  Cornell  study  re-­ cently  being  cited  by  the  Conservation  Law  Foundation,  there  is  an  increase  in   global  warming  pollution  from  natural  gas  use  because  of  methane  emissions   in  the  extraction  process.  The  study  was  used  by  CLF  to  suggest  that  most  of   the  natural  gas  used  in  the  Addison  pipelines  would  come  from  gas  extracted   through  a  fracking  process  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  a  hypothetical  assumption,  at  best.

Middlebury  offers  an  ideal  setting A   fellow   publisher   from   my   home   state   of   Kansas   stopped  by  this  weekend  for  dinner  at  our  Lake  Dunmore   home.  He  sold  his  three  papers  back  in  2007  while �� in  his   late   50s,   and   he   and   his   wife   have   been   shopping   ever   since.  Not  for  goods  to  consume,  but  for  a  new  place  to   live.   Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  shopped  California,  found  the  weather  delight-­ ful  around  the  Santa  Barbara  area,  but  housing  and  living   expenses   in   the   stratosphere.   Ditto   the   Bay  Area   around   San   Francisco.   Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   shopped   Oregon   (from   Bend   to   the   rugged   coast   line),   the   spectacular   northwest   corner   of   Washington   state,   up   and   down   the   Rockies,   even   Las   Vegas   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   great   deals   on   houses,   they   said,  but  the  underbelly  of  that  city  and   the  surrounding  area  is  what  you  might   By Angelo expect.   Lynn Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   been   to   the   Carolinas,   Vir-­ ginias,   parts   of   the   East   Coast,   Wis-­ consin-­Minnesota  areas  (Madison  was   a   consideration,   they   said,   but   the   politics   are   not   what   they  were  in  the  1970s).  And  theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  been  to  Maine,  New   Hampshire,  Massachusetts  and  several  parts  of  New  York,   including  the  city.   Throughout  the  years,  what  theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  learned  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  and  al-­ ways  knew  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  is  thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  no  perfect  spot.  Each  place  has  its   attributes   and   detractions.   Picking   a   home   town,   in   their   circumstance,  is  somewhat  like  a  marriage:  You  need  com-­ patibility,  but  most  important  is  trying  to  determine  if  the   community  you  pick  will  result  in  a  relationship  in  which   it  feels  good  to  give  back. This   visit   was   their   third   to   Middlebury,   a   town   they   had  considered  several  years  ago  (and  which  is  still  in  the   running),  but  it  hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  been  so  compelling  to  call  off  their   search  and  settle  in.  At  least,  not  yet.   In   the   course   of   our   conversation   that   evening,   which   OLQJHUHGXQWLOMXVWSDVWZHFRPSDUHGQRWHVRISODFHVZH had  all  lived  and  how  each  stacked  up  in  our  hierarchy  of   favorites.  We  boasted  of  the  college  and  its  willingness  to  

share  resources  (auditing  some  classes  and  lectures,  the  art   museum,  sports  facilities,  nearby  skiing).  We  highlighted   the  Town  Hall  Theater,  the  Opera  Company  of  Middlebury,   DQGDQDFWLYHFRPPXQLW\WKHDWHURUJDQL]DWLRQ:HWDONHGRI RXUWKULYLQJEXVLQHVVRUJDQL]DWLRQ WKH%HWWHU0LGGOHEXU\ Partnership)  and  of  an  active  chamber,  and  the  productive   and  symbiotic  town-­gown  relationship.  My  daughter  and   her  beau  gushed  about  the  number  of  younger  adults  taking   over  leadership  positions  in  the  town  and  how  active  the   young   professional   groups,   including   an   active   group   of   telecommuters,   could   become.   They   seemed   more   impressed   with   this   in-­ ner   aspect   of   Middlebury   than   what   they  had  seen  from  the  outside. The  obvious  question  for  them,  after   WKHLU ÂżYH\HDU VHDUFK ZDV MXVW ZKDW these  two  were  searching  for.

You  know  Congress  is  broken  when  80  to  90  percent  of  the  public  sup-­ ports  policies  that  keep  interest  rates  on  student  loans  where  they  are,  rather   than  doubling  from  3.4  percent  to  6.8  percent,  and  yet  the  Republican  House   blocked  efforts  by  the  Democratic  Senate  to  maintain  the  status  quo.  As  of   Monday,  the  rates  doubled;Íž  the  government  will  pocket  the  windfall. 7KH ORDQV LQYROYHG IDOO XQGHU WKH VXEVLGL]HG 6WDIIRUG ORDQ SURJUDP DQG have  been  one  of  the  least  expensive  forms  of  loans  available  to  students.  The   maximum  amount  a  student  can  borrow  through  the  program  is  $23,000.  If   you  double  the  rates  on  the  maximum  amount  of  the  loan,  the  increase  in  in-­ terest  payments  is  about  $4,500.  At  that  amount,  it  is  not  a  life-­or-­death  issue.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  hardship,  but  college  students  with  these  loans  will  survive.

Around the bend

On  June  22,  my  wife  and  I  went   to  the  Town  Hall  Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Fifth   $QQLYHUVDU\*DODDQGZHUHDPD]HG by  the  range  of  local  and  regional   talented  represented  in  the  perfor-­ mances.  Unfortunately,  we  also   experienced  obnoxious  rudeness  of   a  sort  we  had  never  encountered  at  a   cultural  event. We  were  seated  in  front  of  and   below  two  women  whose  idea  of   vigorously  approving  a  song  or   dance  was  to  whoop  so  loudly  it   hurt  our  ears.  When  I  turned  around   and  explained  this,  I  got  the  reply   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wear  earplugs!â&#x20AC;?  My  wife  turned   and  said  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  are.â&#x20AC;?

When  it  ended,  the  younger   woman  asked  me,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  you   ever  been  to  a  theater?  You  have   to  expect  it  to  be  loud  at  a  theater.â&#x20AC;?   As  a  matter  of  fact  I  have  probably   written  reviews  for  more  produc-­ tions  than  this  person  has  ever  seen,   all  through  southwestern  Vermont,   and  in  many  of  those  venues  such   loudness  and  discourtesy  would   have  brought  immediate  atten-­ tion  from  the  ushers.  Sounds  loud   enough  to  hurt  are  loud  enough  to   cause  damage,  and  the  right  to  free   speech  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  apply  any  more  than   it  does  if  someone  wants  to  yell   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fireâ&#x20AC;?  in  a  crowded  theater. Like  the  Town  Hall  Theater   audience,  the  volunteer  ushers  are   PRVWO\VHQLRUFLWL]HQVDQGFDQÂśWEH expected  to  monitor  everything.  In   the  past  I  have  regretted  the  graying   of  the  audiences  for  serious  perfor-­ mances;Íž  now  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  more  inclined  to   be  glad  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  how  it  is.

ADDISON   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   The   John   Strong   Mansion  Museum,  owned  and  oper-­ ated  by  the  Vermont  Daughters  of  the   American   Revolution,   has   received   a   grant   of   $6,900   to   support   the   repair  and  preservation  of  its  historic   front   portico.  The   grant   is   provided   by  the  Vermont  State  Society  and  the   National   Society   Daughters   of   the   American   Revolution.   Repair   work   on   the   buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   distinctive   porch   began   recently.   The   mansion   will   be  open  for  guided  tours  during  the   repair  work. The   front   porch   is   one   of   the   Strong   Mansionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   most   distinctive   features.  While  it  has  been  repaired   DQGPRGLÂżHGRYHUWKH\HDUVDQ photo  shows  the  porch  looking  very   similar   to   the   way   it   looks   today,   but   with   wooden   steps   on   a   stone   foundation.   The   preservation   goal   is  to  restore  it  to  its  original  appear-­ ance,  using  modern  and  unobtrusive   techniques   of   support   to   ensure   its   strength  and  durability. Vermont   DAR   State   Regent   Elizabeth   Bicknell   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;This   recognition  by  the  Daughters  of  the   American   Revolution   at   the   state   and   national   level   reinforces   what   a   treasure   we   have   in   the   Strong   Mansion.   The   DAR   understands   that   the   John   Strong   Mansion   is   a   valued  asset  that  carries  a  consider-­ able  responsibility  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  a  heritage  that   should  be  shared  with  all  who  want   to  know  more  about  colonial  life  and   THE  JOHN  STRONG  Mansion  Museum  in  Addison  has  received  a  his-­ the   early   foundations   of   Vermont   toric  preservation  grant  to  restore  the  buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  front  porch  to  its  origi-­ statehood.â&#x20AC;? nal  appearance,  as  seen  in  this  1934  photo.

The   subject   eventually   surrendered   the  child  upon  return  of  the  investigating   trooper  with  a  search  warrant.  The  child   was   safely   transferred   to   the   motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   custody   and   the   defendant,   Michael   Malone,  33,  of  Bristol  was  cited  by  VSP   for   violation   of   the   abuse   prevention   order.

the   Netherlands   and   the   United   States   are   registered   to   participate   in   the   weeklong   competition   and   community   event.   LCMM   was   invited   to   participate   in   this   inter-­ national  competition  as  winners  of   the   2012   St.   Ayles   Championship   held  in  Mystic,  Conn.,  last  June. 6W$\OHVVNLIIVRU³VNLI¿HV´DUH

four-­person  boats  made  for  coastal   rowing.   Their   design   is   based   off   of   the   Fair   Isle   skiff,   a   generic   form   that   is   descended   from   the   smaller  Viking  skiffs.  The  museum   has   built   two   St.  Ayles   skiffs   with   the   Community   High   School   of   Vermont   as   part   of   its   Champlain   Longboats   Program.   The  

Longboats   Program,   initiated   in   1999,  is  an  innovative  boatbuilding   and   rowing   program   that   partners   the   museum   with   regional   schools   and  community  organizations.  The   primary  goal  is  to  develop  positive,   healthy   behavior   in   middle   and   high   school   students   at   a   critical   time   in   their   lives   by   giving   them  

the   opportunity   to   experience   the   team-­   and   self-­esteem-­building   nature  of  boat  building  and  rowing. The  LCMM  Community  Rowing   Club   offers   adult   rowing   every   week   May   through   October   utiliz-­ ing   the   museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   longboats   and   skiffs.   LCMM   members   sign   up   to   experience   the   beauty   of   Lake  

Champlain   while   getting   a   great   physical   workout.   Adult   commu-­ nity   teams   also   participate   in   regional  rowing  competitions. For   more   information   on   the   Rowing   Club   or   Champlain   Longboats   Program,   contact   the   museum  at  802-­475-­2022  or  info@ lcmm.org.

RIPTON  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  Spirit  in  Nature,  the   faith-­based  nature  paths  in  Ripton,   will   dedicate   its   new   Native   American   Path   this   Sunday,   July   7,   from   1-­4   p.m.   with   a   Native   American  ceremony  and  picnic  at   Spirit  in  Nature  in  Ripton.   This   long-­anticipated   new   path   was   completed   last   year   with   the   help  of  Jennifer  Vyhnak  of  Bristol   and   Richard   Pigeon   from   New   <RUNVWDWH9\KQDNKDV&KHURNHH ancestry  and  Pigeon  and  his  wife,   Sandy,   are   members   of   the   Otter   Creek  band  of  Abenaki.

For   those   familiar   with   this   popular   walking   (and   snowshoe-­ ing)   venue,   this   new   path   runs   from   the   Christian   Path   on   the   west  to  the  Pagan  Path  on  the  east   end   with   a   side   loop   passing   a   stone  with  a  natural  bowl-­shaped   depression   where   offerings   may   be  left,  and  a  side  path  to  a  grove   with   two   large   red   pines.   The   sayings   on   the   signs   along   the   path   were   contributed   by   both   Vyhnak   and   Pigeon.   They   have   jointly  planned  the  ceremony. The  event  will  take  place  at  the  

Sacred   Circle,   a   natural   clearing   straight   ahead   from   the   park-­ ing   lot,   past   the   labyrinth,   where   there  is  a  circle  of  benches  around   DÂżUHSLW&KLOLFRUQEUHDGVDODG and   dessert   will   be   provided   and   attendees  are  invited  to  bring  their   own  beverage. Spirit   in   Nature   was   an   outgrowth   of   the   Dalai   Lamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   second   visit   to   Middlebury   College.   A   group   of   locals   who   heard   him   speak   and   wanted   to   take   some   action   created   this   project.   The   mission   statement  

describes   Spirit   in   Nature   as   â&#x20AC;&#x153;a   place   of   interconnecting   paths   where   people   of   diverse   spiritual   traditions   may   walk,   worship,   meet,   meditate,   and   promote   education   and   action   toward   better   stewardship   of   this   sacred   (DUWK´ SpIN,  as  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  called  (SIN  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   seem   like   the   right   acronym   to   the   founders),   is   a   501(3)(c)   QRQSURÂżW ZLWK D YROXQWHHU ERDUG New   board   members   are   always   welcome.   For   information,   call   Ron  Slabaugh  at  388-­0957.

But   for   the   novelist,   the   ultimate   beauty   was   in   the   irony   that   despite   the   deliberate   attempts   to   destroy   it,   beauty  had  prevailed  against  war. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back   to   that   granary,   they   tried   to   blow   it   up   so   it   couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   be   used   as  a  spotting  tower,â&#x20AC;?  he  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It  was   600  years  old  but  it  was  so  well  built   that  part  of  it  was  still  standing  and  it   was,  in  fact,  now  a  beautiful  bed  and   breakfast.  And  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  when  I  realized,   this  is  my  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Romeo  and  Juliet.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It   was   a   rundown   pile   of   rubble   and   they   rebuilt   it   into   a   beautiful   villa  where  they  live  and  work  now.

into  a  four-­unit  apartment  house.   Small-­frame   buildings   would   be   erected  in  the  space  behind  the  To-­ masi   House   to   accommodate   up   to   six   other   single-­family   units,   and   another  duplex  would  be  construct-­ ed   in   a   barn   that   is   currently   unin-­ habitable. Kamens  said  the  view  from  North   Street  would  not  change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That   streetscape   has   been   there   for   150   years,â&#x20AC;?   she   said,   noting   that   although   the   back   of   the   To-­ masi  House  was  unsalvageable  and   would   be   torn   down,   the   renova-­ tions  would  be  done  so  that  the  front   of  the  building  remained  intact. The   planning   commission   has   adjourned   for   July,   which   Kamens   said  gives  her  and  Mendell  time  to   GUDZXSDPRUHGHÂżQLWHFRQFHSWXDO plan   with   the   help   of   an   architect  

and   thus   better   prepare   for   a   de-­ tailed   conversation   with   the   plan-­ ning  commission  in  August.   Kamens  and  Mendell  also  held  a   neighborhood  meeting  so  that  those   who  live  nearby  could  come  and  ask   questions.   They   are   seeking   fami-­ lies  who  are  interested  in  being  part   of  a  co-­housing  community. Town   Administrator   Bill   Bryant   noted  that  discussion  was  in  the  ear-­ ly  phases  and  that  the  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  prior-­ ity  was  to  enhance  discussion  to  the   best  of  its  ability.   Bryant   said   that   Kamens   and   Mendell   appear   to   be   operating   within  the  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  zoning  rules  when   it   came   to   setbacks   and   dwelling   units. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They   seem   to   be   working   very   hard   to   work   within   existing   stan-­ dards,â&#x20AC;?  Bryant  said.

also  be  able  to  put  some  of  Vermont   Gasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  marketing  assertions  to  the  test   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  such  as  its  claim  that  natural  gas   is   currently   more   than   40   percent   cheaper  than  fuel  oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking   at   alternatives   canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   be   a   bad   thing,â&#x20AC;?   agreed   Rep.   Dave   Sharpe,  D-­Bristol,  who  also  supports   the  letter. Sharpe   is   particularly   intrigued   about   what   the   study   might   reveal   DERXW WKH WUDQVSRUWDWLRQ RI OLTXHÂżHG natural   gas.   He   said   the   proposed   pipeline   projects   would   only   serve   the   most   densely   clustered   neigh-­ borhoods.  Sharpe  wants  to  see  if  the   DYDLODELOLW\ RI OLTXHÂżHG QDWXUDO JDV could  be  a  money  saver  for  rural  resi-­ dents  and  businesses. Sharpe,   a   veteran   member   of   the   House   Ways   and   Means   Commit-­ tee,   is   also   exploring   a   new   way   of   taxing   natural   gas.   He   noted   that   communities  that  host  natural  gas  in-­ frastructure  receive  property  tax  rev-­ enues   that   gradually   decline   as   the   infrastructure   depreciates.   Sharpe   is   weighing  a  switch  whereby  Vermont   Gas   would   be   taxed   based   on   units   of    natural  gas  it  dispenses.  This,  he   said,  is  how  nuclear  power,  solar  and   wind  projects  are  taxed. INFORMATION  GATHERING Sen.   Chris   Bray,   D-­New   Haven,   also  sees  the  study  as  an  information-­ gathering   tool.  And   this   is   informa-­ tion   that   many   communities   within   the   pipelinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   paths   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   have   the   time   or   resources   to   obtain   on   their   own,  according  to  Bray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   talking   about   a   $112   mil-­ lion   investment,â&#x20AC;?   Bray   said   of   the   combined   costs   of   phases   one   and   two.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is   this   a   wise   investment   for   Addison   County   and   Vermont   to   make?â&#x20AC;? Recchia   on   Monday   acknowl-­ edged   receiving   the   letter.   He   said   he   and   his   department   will   weigh   the  request,  but  noted  his  department   PXVW IXOÂżOO YDULRXV DVSHFWV RI WKH proposed  study  anyway  as  part  of  the   PSDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  role  in  representing  Vermont-­ ers  during  the  Public  Service  Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   review   of   the  Vermont   Gas   applica-­ tion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  not  sure  right  now  what  (as-­ pects  of  the  request)  can  be  done  in-­ dependent   of   the   docket,   as   part   of   the  docket  or  as  evidence  in  the  case   itself,â&#x20AC;?    Recchia  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll  discuss   the   letter   here   and   let   (the   signers)   know  what  we  think  we  can  do.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile,  Vermont   Gas   spokes-­ man   Steve   Wark   said   the   company   LV FRQÂżGHQW D VWXG\ ZRXOG FRQÂżUP natural   gas   to   be   cleaner   and   more   cost-­effective   than   fuel   oil.   He   said   the   company   had   recently   com-­ missioned   an   independent   analysis   of   the   Addison   Natural   Gas   Proj-­ ect   that   shows   â&#x20AC;&#x153;the   41-­mile   project   ZLOOVLJQLÂżFDQWO\UHGXFHJUHHQKRXVH emissions   if   customers   switch   from   heating   oil   to   gas.â&#x20AC;?  That   study,   per-­ IRUPHG E\ HQHUJ\ FRQVXOWLQJ ÂżUP ICF   International,   indicated   that   the   life-­cycle   greenhouse   gas   emissions   of  carbon  dioxide  and  methane  from   natural  gas  are  23  percent  lower  than   fuel  oil  on  an  end-­use  basis,  accord-­ ing  to  Wark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   Public   Service   Board   will   conduct   an   independent   and   objec-­ tive  analysis  based  on  facts  from  the   participants  in  their  evidentiary  pro-­ cess,â&#x20AC;?  Wark  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  have  no  doubt   natural  gas  will  continue  to  be  shown   as  cleaner  and  more  affordable  than   the  alternatives.â&#x20AC;? :DUN DGGHG WKH XVH RI OLTXHÂżHG natural   gas   would   require   construc-­ tion  of  an  LNG  plant  in  Middlebury.   That  plant,  he  said,  would  require  a   large   tank   supplied   with   natural   gas   trucked  in  on  a  regular  basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Such   a   system   would   not   serve   homes  and  businesses  outside  the  in-­ dustrial  area,â&#x20AC;?  Wark  contended. Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   note:   Because   of   a   holi-­ day   early   deadline,   this   edition   of   the   Independent   could   not   include   coverage  of  a  Tuesday  evening  meet-­ ing   in   Shoreham   where   the   pipeline   proposals  were  due  to  be  discussed.   Look  for  a  story  in  Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  edition.
