There are 250-300 gas explosions per year in this country. It could happen here in Vermont, with the Vermont Gas Pipeline that would carry fracked gas from Canada through Addison County, underneath Lake Champlain to International Paper in New York.  Our farms, forests, communities and lake at risk for what? So IP can cut fuel costs. Say   what? Our farms, streams, air, safety, health, Lake Champlain and landscape at risk for IP? The Vermont Gas Pipeline: a deal between two international corporations.  Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing natural about it.

Motorists  urged   to  use  caution I  have  to  write  this  letter  as  a   concerned  neighbor  and  resident  for   almost  30  years  at  the  intersections   of  Washington  Street  Extension,   Happy  Valley  Road,  Painter  Hills   Road,  Halpin  Road  and  Painter   Road  asking  for  drivers  passing   through  our  stretch  of  town  to  show   a  little  bit  more  responsibility  of  not   driving  fast  to  and/or  from  the  vil-­ lage  of  Middlebury. It  appears  that  there  are  a  few   neighbors  with  kids  riding  bikes,   happy  grandkids  in  strollers  and   others  who  are  simply  out  and  about   enjoying  this  populated  area  among   all  the  fast  travelers  who  drive  ve-­ hicles  to  meet  up  with  their  appoint-­ ments  and  schedules. I  feel  disappointed  of  calling  the   police  department  regarding  this   potential  worry  of  something  I  wish   not  happen  and  need  not  discuss  and   I  do  understand  that  this  is  probably   QRWWKHÂżUVWWLPHWKH\KDYHUHFHLYHG such  a  call. It  is  really  not  my  duty  to  be  vigi-­ lant,  but  when  someone  shows  me   WKHLUWDOOHVWÂżQJHUSRLQWLQJXSZDUG after  showing  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;please  slow  downâ&#x20AC;?   motion,  I  became  compelled  to   write  this  note  for  those  who  might   need  acknowledgment  for  their   regard  of  others. I  hope  I  was  not  indignant  to  that   particular  motorist  expressing  my   concern  for  a  quality-­of-­life  regard.

Chance  encounter  boosts  family I  had  kept  abreast  of  his  life  during  the  past  three  years   very   impersonally   and   from   afar,   through   Facebook.   I   didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  know  how  to  break  the  ice,  because  the  last  time  I   saw  Charlie,  he  was  in  diapers  making  mayhem.  Now  in   his  mid-­20s,  I  learned  that  Charlie  was  still  making  some   mayhem   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   though   thankfully   not   of   the   law-­breaking   variety,   just   through   his   rock   band   and   other   youthful   pursuits. Charlie   is   my   half-­brother,   with   whom   I   lost   contact   two   decades   ago   after   our   dad   died.   Never   got   to   know  him  much  as  a  child.  He  and  his   brother,   Donny,   left   the   region   with   By John their   mom   soon   after   dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   death.   Flowers Wondered  if  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d  ever  see  Charlie  and   'RQQ\ DJDLQ WKRXJK ZH EULHĂ&#x20AC;\ VDZ Donny  about  six  years  ago,  in  Maine.   Donny  has  since  relocated  to  California  to  pursue  a  ca-­ UHHUDVDPDUWLDODUWVÂżJKWHUDQGLQVWUXFWRU But  Charlie  had  remained  a  mystery.  He  had  accept-­ ed   my   â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendâ&#x20AC;?   request   on   Facebook,   but   there   never   seemed  to  be  an  appropriate  conversation-­starter.  Soooo,   what  have  you  been  up  to  since  you  stopped  using  a  paci-­ ÂżHU"5HPHPEHUPH" Of  course  there  was  no  way  he  would  remember  me,   and   at   51,   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m   old   enough   to   be   his   dad.   Figured   he   might  look  upon  me  as  a  comparative  fossil  with  whom   he  had  little  in  common.  I  wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  naĂŻve  enough  to  think   he  would  welcome  me  with  open  arms  as  the  proverbial   brother-­from-­another-­mother. Still,  I  decided  to  make  an  initial  overture  last  year,  e-­

mailing  him  some  photos  of  our  dad,  whom  he  never  got   to  know.  He  politely  accepted  the  photos,  but  the  gesture   failed  to  produce  an  entrĂŠe  into  a  more  meaningful  rap-­ port. Was  I  coming  on  too  strong?  Was  his  polite-­but-­brief   response  an  indication  that  heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d  like  to  maintain  the  sta-­ tus  quo?  Perhaps  he  wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  ready,  at  this  point  in  his  life,   to  climb  the  branches  of  a  family  tree   that  had  heretofore  remained  hidden   to  him. Fair  enough.  I  decided  to  continue   to   give   Charlie   his   distance   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   until   this  past  May.  My  wife  Dottie  and  I   planned  an  anniversary  sojourn  to  the   Kennebunk  area  of  Maine,  not  too  far   from  where  my  dad  lived  during  the   ÂżQDO\HDUVRIKLVWRRVKRUWOLIH$VZH considered   activities   and   spots   to   visit   in   the   area,   we   dared  to  imagine  an  impromptu  face-­to-­face  with  Char-­ lie.   So   we   looked   up   his   workplace,   a   Portland   restau-­ rant,  and  popped  the  address  in  our  GPS  on  a  Saturday   night.  Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  even  know  if  he  was  on  duty  that  night.  We   left  it  all  to  chance. I   was   a   ball  of   sweaty   nerves   as   I   sauntered  into  the   restaurant,  Dottie  in  front  of  me. And  there  he  was.  There  was  no  mistaking  it  from  the   Facebook   photos.   Handsome   young   man,   tanned   skin,   Asian  features  from  his  mom,  unmistakable  facial  con-­ tours  from  our  dad.

Public  is  still  feeling  a  recession A  national  poll  conducted  by  NBC  News  and  The  Wall   Street  Journal  in  late  May  and  early  June  found  that  58   percent  of  those  surveyed  agreed  with  the  statement  â&#x20AC;&#x153;the   United   States   is   in   an   economic   recession.â&#x20AC;?   The   con-­ sensus  of  academic  and  business  economists  is  that  the   recession   that   began   in   late   2007   ended   in   the   summer   of  2009,  when  the  economy  bottomed  out.  The  economy   has  been  growing,  albeit  slowly  and  below  its  potential,   for   the   past   four   years.   Why   is   there   a   disconnect   be-­ tween  public  perceptions  and  the  views  of  professional   economists  over  the  end  point  of  the  recession? One   reason   is   the   extent   of   unem-­ ployment   in   the   United   States.   The   Labor  Department  reported  last  week   that   the   unemployment   rate   for   May   was   7.6   percent.   This   represents   a   very   high   level   of   joblessness   four   years  into  an  expansion.  Furthermore,   the   commonly   reported   unemploy-­ ment   rate   understates   the   extent   of   By  Eric  L.  Davis joblessness  in  America.   Almost   12   million   Americans   are   unemployed.  An  additional  8  million   people  are  categorized  as  â&#x20AC;&#x153;underemployedâ&#x20AC;?  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  they  want   IXOOWLPHMREVEXWDUHQRWDEOHWRÂżQGDQ\WKLQJPRUHWKDQ part-­time  positions.  Finally,  more  than  2  million  people   are   called   â&#x20AC;&#x153;marginally   attachedâ&#x20AC;?   to   the   labor   force   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   they  would  like  to  have  work  but  are  so  discouraged  that   they  have  given  up  looking  for  a  job.  In  total,  nearly  22   million  Americans  would  like  to  be  working  more  than   they  are.  This  represents  more  than  10  percent  of  the  pop-­ ulation  between  18  and  65  years  old,  and  helps  explain   why   a   majority   of   those   polled   believe   the   economy   is   still  in  recession.

Politically Thinking

Another  reason  for  the  economy-­in-­recession  percep-­ tion  is  the  substantial  disparity  across  income  groups  in   UHFHLYLQJ WKH EHQHÂżWV RI WKH HFRQRPLF H[SDQVLRQ VLQFH summer   2009.   Analysts   at   the   Federal   Reserve   of   St.   Louis  note  that  the  aggregate  net  worth  of  all  American   households  at  the  end  of  2012  was  $66.1  trillion,  near-­ ly   the   same   as   the   pre-­recession   peak   of   $67.4   trillion   reached  in  September  2007.  At  the  trough  of  the  reces-­ sion   in   March   2009,   aggregate   household   wealth   was   $51.4  trillion.   The  St.  Louis  Fed  researchers  concluded  that  62  per-­ cent   of   the   $14.7   trillion   increase   in   household  wealth  from  2009  to  2012   was  due  to  stock  market  gains.  Own-­ ership   of   stocks   is   concentrated   in   a   small   number   of   high-­net-­worth   households,  which,  in  many  instanc-­ es,  are  better  off  today  than  they  were   in  2007.  However,  for  the  majority  of   American  households,  whose  income   comes  from  wages  and  salaries,  and   whose  principal  asset  is  a  home  that   is   probably   worth   less   today   than   it   was   in   2007,   the   gains   in   aggregate   household   wealth   have  not  translated  into  an  increase  in  living  standards.   In  the  NBC/WSJ  poll,  68  percent  of  respondents  agreed   with  the  statement  that  â&#x20AC;&#x153;the  Dow  Jones  Average  has  hit   an  all-­time  high  is  an  indication  that  corporations  and  the   wealthy  are  doing  better,  but  not  necessarily  the  econo-­ my  overall.â&#x20AC;? High  and  growing  amounts  of  student  loan  debt  also   help  explain  perceptions  of  the  economy.  The  New  York   Federal  Reserve  recently  reported  that  student  loan  debt   (See  Davis,  Page  5A)

I  would  like  to  thank  the  Climate   Committee  of  the  Middlebury   Friends  Meeting  for  their  very   thoughtful  letter  concerning  the   gas  pipeline  and  thank  you,  too,  to   Susan  Shashok  for  being  the  lone   dissenter  on  the  selectboard. 0\ÂżUVWUHDFWLRQZKHQ,UHDG of  the  selectboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  vote  to  accept   the  pipeline  was  disbelief.  The   vast  majority  of  towns  in  Vermont,   Middlebury  included,  voted  â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;?   to  fracking  in  Vermont.  Why,  then,   are  we  willing  to  accept  fracked  gas   from  Canada  passing  in  a  pipeline   under  our  town? One  of  the  members  of  the  se-­ lectboard  was  quoted  as  saying  the   majority  of  Middlebury  residents   want  the  pipeline.  I  would  like  to   NQRZZKHUHWKLVÂłPDMRULW\´ÂżJXUH comes  from,  as  there  certainly  was   nothing  on  the  ballot  in  March   about  the  pipeline.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;God  of  Carnageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  coming  to  Town  Hall  Theatre MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Middlebury   Actors  Workshop  will  present  Yasmina   Rezaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  2009  Tony  Award-­winning  play,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;God   of   Carnage,â&#x20AC;?   Thursday-­Sunday,   June   27-­30,   at   Town   Hall   Theater   in   Middlebury.   This   fast-­paced,   wicked   little   comedy   of   manners   takes   on   parenthood,  civilization  and  the  hypoc-­ risy  we  all  indulge  in  when  defending   our  own. With   elements   of   subtle   social   satire  and  broad  comedy,  this  play  will   resonate  with  just  about  everyone.  Two   couples  get  together  to  resolve  a  play-­ ground  altercation  between  their  sons.   Despite   their   best   intentions,   tensions   emerge,  fault  lines  open,  and  the  gloves   come  off  with  hilarious  results.     Rezaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   play,   in   a   translation   by   Christopher   Hampton,   is   among   the   most   successful   comedies   to   come   along   in   recent   years.   After   a   long   run   on   Broadway   starring   James   *DQGROÂżQL LW KDV EHHQ PDGH LQWR D ÂżOPDQGSURGXFHGLQWKHDWHUVDOORYHU the  country.

By  XIAN  CHIANG-­WAREN BRISTOL   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   This   Saturday   be-­ ginning  at  8  p.m.,  Smart  Growth  for   Bristol  will  host  a  community  story-­ telling  event  in  Holley  Hall  modeled   after  the  Moth  Radio  Hour,  a  popular   weekly  show  heard  on  National  Pub-­ lic  Radio  in  which  regular  people  tell   stories  from  their  lives.   The  Mothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  storytelling  model  has   each  storyteller  speak  without  notes,   a  strategy  that  often  results  in  a  vari-­ ety  of  stories  that  range  from  tragic   to   hysterically   funny,   according   to   event   organizer   and   Smart   Growth   member  Caroline  Engvall. The   topic   of   the   stories   at   Sat-­ urdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   event   will   simply   be   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life   in   Bristol,â&#x20AC;?   and   all   members   of   the   community  from  every  age  group  are   invited  to  attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d   heard   the   Moth   on   radio,  

The Mothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storytelling model has each storyteller speak without notes, a strategy that often results in a variety of stories that range from tragic to hysterically funny. and  thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  always  a  lot  of  fun,â&#x20AC;?  said   Engvall.   The  master  of  ceremonies  will  be   Bobby   Stoddard,   a   Warren   resident   whose  own  Moth  story  has  been  fea-­ tured   on   the   national   radio   program   and   who   Engvall   says   has   a   unique   talent   for   coaxing   stories   from   the   audience.  Anyone  with  a  story  to  tell   may  put  his  or  her  name  into  a  hat,  

and  Stoddard  will  draw  names  at  ran-­ dom.   Engvall  said  there  will  be  no  pres-­ sure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   audience   can   be   audience   members  or  storytellers,â&#x20AC;?  she  said.   People  are  invited  simply  to  come   listen   and   relax   while   hanging   out   with   other   members   of   the   commu-­ nity.  Engvall  hopes  to  attract  people   from   all   walks   of   life,   to   represent   the   many   experiences   in   the   Bristol   community.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;People   get   to   say   whatever   they   want,  and  usually  great  stories  come   out  of  it,â&#x20AC;?  she  said. The  event  will  run  from  8  to  10:30   p.m.  and  is  free,  although  donations   to  Smart  Growth  for  Bristol  will  be   collected.  And   if   the   night   is   a   suc-­ cess,   Engvall   is   open   to   organizing   future  events.
