Phase  II  &  the  public  good If  Vermont  Gas  Systems  thinks  it  has  had  a  rocky  time  with  Phase   I  of  the  Addison  County  pipeline  project,  running  from  Colchester  to   Middlebury,  they  might  want  to  reconsider  their  strategy  for  the  next  leg  of   the  project.  With  Phase  II,  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  going  to  get  much  worse.   Landowners  along  the  proposed  gas  line  route  in  Phase  II,  running   through  Cornwall  and  Shoreham  to  Ticonderoga,  N.Y.,  have  had  ample   time  to  prepare  for  battle  and  are  privy  to  the  tactics  used  by  Vermont  Gas.   They  are,  as  the  saying  goes,  loaded  for  bear. 7KHUHLVDOVRDVLJQLÂżFDQWGLIIHUHQFHEHWZHHQWKHWZRSURMHFWV3KDVH, had  a  solid  argument  for  serving  the  public  good.  Bringing  a  cheaper  and   cleaner  fuel  to  residents  and  businesses  in  Addison,  and  eventually,  Rutland   counties  meets  that  test,  and  the  route  to  get  there  was  basically  the  most   practical  and  straightforward.   That  is  not  the  case  with  Phase  II.  The  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  objective  in  extending   the  pipeline  to  Rutland  is  to  provide  a  cheaper  fuel  to  stabilize  existing   businesses,  industries  and  residences  in  that  economically  challenged  area.   The  economics  behind  the  public  good  of  that  endeavor  is  solid.  The  price   of  propane  and  fuel  oil  is  currently  running  about  40  to  60  percent  higher   than  natural  gas.  If  Middleburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  mid-­sized  Agri-­Mark  plant  can  save  $2.5 ��  million  to  $3  million  a  year  in  fuel  costs  with  the  switch  to  natural  gas,   there  will  be  many  similar  businesses  in  the  Rutland  area  that  can  also   save  similar  amounts.  Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  huge  incentive  to  stay  in  a  place,  or  leave  if   the  time  to  get  lower  cost  fuel  there  is  too  long.  Ten  years,  after  all,  could   amount  to  a  $30  million  difference  in  fuel  costs  to  a  business. 7LPHWKHUHIRUHLVRIWKHHVVHQFH,I9HUPRQW*DVPXVWÂżUVWJRHDVWWR west  through  Cornwall  and  Shoreham  to  hook  up  IP,  and  then  head  back   east  before  it  can  turn  south  to  Rutland,  that  adds  years  of  delay  to  its  effort   to  reach  Rutland.  And  reaching  Rutland,  not  enriching  Vermont  Gas  or  IP,   is  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  objective  and  the  public  good  it  hopes  to  serve. To  that  end,  the  Public  Service  Board,  the  Department  of  Public  Service   and  state  policymakers  should  reconsider  the  best  interests  of  the  state,  and   perhaps  try  to  imagine  other  solutions  rather  than  running  roughshod  over   Cornwallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  and  Shorehamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  concerns.   Unfortunately,  state  leaders  are  not  fully  engaged  in  the  controversy,   largely  because  Vermont  Gas  has  been  a  good  corporate  citizen  in   )UDQNOLQDQG&KLWWHQGHQFRXQWLHVDQGVWDWHRIÂżFLDOVKDGH[SHFWHGWKHVDPH enthusiastic  reception  in  Addison  County.   Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  so,  and  itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  time  state  leaders  took  notice.   Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  markedly  different  about  Phase  II  is  the  chosen  route  to  IP  is   DÂżQDQFLDOFRQYHQLHQFHWR9HUPRQW*DVWKDWKDVQRJUHDWHUSXEOLFJRRG than  to  enrich  the  company  through  a  lucrative  contract  with  IP.  What  is   also  different  about  the  project  is  that  landowners  are  almost  unanimously   DJDLQVWLWDQGDUHPRXQWLQJOHJDOFKDOOHQJHV6LJQLÂżFDQWOHJDOGHOD\VDGG costs,  which  will  be  passed  onto  ratepayers.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  in  the  publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  interest  to   avoid  such  costs. We  would  hope  state  leaders  would  avert  this  oncoming  train  wreck   by  reassessing  the  public  good  of  the  Phase  II  project,  and  convincing   Vermont  Gas  and  its  parent  company,  Gaz  Metro,  that  the  best  road  to   Rutland  is  due  south  from  Middlebury.  That  might  happen  if  the  PSD  made   DVWURQJFDVHDJDLQVWDSXEOLFJRRGFHUWLÂżFDWHDQGWKH36%OLVWHQHG The  state  might  also  strongly  encourage  all  pertinent  partners  that   the  route  from  Middlebury  to  Rutland  should  hone  close  to  the  Route  7   corridor  (using  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  right-­of-­way  whenever  possible)  or  to  work   with  the  VELCO  corridor  used  by  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  electric  utilities.  It  is  absurd   that  Vermont  Gas  has  to  create  a  new  easement  corridor  (an  expensive  and   time-­consuming  process),  when  others  already  exist  and  any  other  route   would  go  over  private  land  to  the  great  consternation  of  those  citizens.   Oddly,  the  state  acts  as  if  its  hands  are  tied  and  that  no  options  are   possible  other  than  following  Vermont  Gasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  preferred  proposal.  Rather,  it   demonstrates  a  lack  of  political  will  to  seek  a  more  creative  solution  that   PRUHFORVHO\IXOÂżOOVWKHSXEOLFJRRG Angelo  S.  Lynn

Letters to the Editor Bible  not  a  good  reference  for  subject  of  abortion In  response  to  Ms.  Jennie  Anne   Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  essay  on  abortion  recently,  I   would  like  to  point  out  some  ironies   in  her  philosophy.  Her  view  is  quite   cut  and  dried.  She  picks  Bible  pas-­ sages  to  support  her  view  of  abortion   as  murder,  but  the  Bible  is  full  of   contradictions. The  Bible  was  written  by  many   different  men  over  a  long  period  of   time.  Some  stories  were  passed  along   orally  for  years  before  being  record-­ ed.  Not  necessarily  a  reliable  system.   To  me,  it  is  scary  to  base  21st-­century   life  on  stories  written  by  men  two   or  three  thousand  years  ago,  who,  

according  to  them,  were  inspired  by   God.  Which  ones  should  we  take   seriously? Ms.  Foster  mentions  the  Law   of  Moses.  Moses  lived  sometime   between  1,500  and  1,300  B.C.  and   wrote  of  events  long  before  his  time.   Supposing  it  is  all  true,  Hebrews   10:28  says,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone  who  rejected  the   Law  of  Moses  died  without  mercy   on  the  testimony  of  two  or  three  wit-­ nesses.â&#x20AC;?  This  implies  that  there  was   a  death  penalty  at  that  time.  Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  that   murder?  Or  is  this  a  part  of  Mosesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   Law  on  to  be  taken  seriously?  Who   chooses?

Ms.  Foster  quotes  Exodus.  Yes,   Exodus  is  a  wonderful  guide  to  life,   try  these: In  Exodus  21:7,  a  man  could  sell   his  daughter  into  slavery.  In  Exodus   21:2-­4,  a  slaveowner  was  permitted   to  give  a  woman  (any  woman?)  to   his  male  slave.  In  Exodus  21:22-­25,   GXULQJD¿JKWEHWZHHQWZRPHQWKH pregnant  wife  of  one  of  the  men  is  hit   and  miscarries.  The  hitter  must  pay   D¿QHWRWKHKXVEDQGEHFDXVHKHKDV been  deprived  of  a  child.  No  mention   of  the  death  of  the  unborn  or  of  the   welfare  of  the  woman  injured.

Letters to the Editor Speed  traps  are  an  affront  to  citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  privacy  rights To  Russia  with  love. Recently,  I  was  excoriated  and   exiled  to  Russia  by  a  person  by  the   name  of  R.  Woods  of  Rochester,   Vt.  This  for  having  suggested  in  a   previous  letter  to  the  editor  that  law   enforcement  speed  traps  were  an   invasion  of  privacy.  I  was  going  to   make  a  heartfelt  response  to  him  or   her  except  that  when  I  called  over  to   WKH5RFKHVWHUSRVWRIÂżFHDQGWRZQ clerk,  I  was  told  no  such  person  re-­ sides  in  the  town.  So  I  will  direct  my   words  to  the  community  at  large. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Restriction  of  free  thought  and   free  speech  is  the  most  dangerous   of  all  subversions.  It  is  the  one  un-­ American  act  that  could  most  easily   defeat  us.â&#x20AC;?  William  O.  Douglas  (the   late  great  Supreme  Court  justice).   He  also  once  said:  â&#x20AC;&#x153;The  Constitu-­ tion  is  not  neutral.  It  was  designed  to   take  the  government  off  the  backs  of   the  people....â&#x20AC;?  

R.  Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  repugnant  vitriol  was   not  only  a  libel  to  me  but  a  grave   affront  to  all  citizens  of  this  com-­ munity.  To  compound  the  calumny,   the  Addison  Independent  apparently   QHYHUFRQÂżUPHGWKHDXWKHQWLFLW\ RIWKHDXWKRUDQGIXUWKHULQĂ&#x20AC;DPHG the  debate  by  inserting  my  name  in   the  heading  of  the  post.  However,   that  merely  raises  the  issue  of  good   manners,  duty  of  care  and  unbiased   journalism.  In  the  words  of  Voltaire:   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  do  not  agree  with  what  you  have   to  say,  but  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll  defend  to  the  death   your  right  to  say  it.â&#x20AC;?   Lastly,  if  the  community  does  not   agree  with  the  fact  that  speed  traps   are  problematic,  why  does  nearly   HYHU\FDUĂ&#x20AC;DVKWKHLUOLJKWVDWPHDV I  approach  one?  And,  of  course,  the   question  remains.  Who  is  R.  Woods?

whatever  that  may  mean,â&#x20AC;?  Sanders   VDLG Âł$QG WKH QXPEHU RI SHRSOH who   identify   as   Democrats   or   Republicans  is  at  a  historically  low   point.â&#x20AC;? Sanders  has  not  yet  begun  to  lay   WKHJURXQGZRUNIRUKLVÂłXQFRQYHQ-­ tionalâ&#x20AC;?   presidential   bid.   For   one   thing,  he  hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  decided  whether  to   run  as  an  independent  or  to  attempt   to   cozy   up   with   the   Democrats.   Nor   has   he   raised   any   money.   He   says   he   will   wait   until   after   the    FRQJUHVVLRQDO UDFH WR WDNH those  steps. In   any   case,   Sanders   says   he   is   worried   about   the   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nader   dilemma,â&#x20AC;?   i.e.,   any   drag   his   run   would   have   on   Democratic   candidates. On  the  same  day  Sandersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  inter-­ view   with   Nichols   was   published,   Ralph   Nader,   the   independent   spoiler   candidate   in   the   2000   presidential   race   with   Republican   *HRUJH %XVK DQG 'HPRFUDW $O Gore,   sent   an   excoriating   letter   to   the   senator   about   his   performance   in   the   Senate   and   his   â&#x20AC;&#x153;unwilling-­ QHVVWRQHWZRUN´ZLWKFLYLFJURXSV that   would   be   sympathetic   to   his   cause.   For   example,   Nader   insists   that   the   restoration   of   the   mini-­ mum  wage  to  1968  levels,  adjusted   IRU LQĂ&#x20AC;DWLRQ  SHU KRXU  would   have   been   achieved   sooner   KDG 6DQGHUV EHHQ ZLOOLQJ WR ZRUN ZLWK RWKHU ODZPDNHUV WR IRUP D â&#x20AC;&#x153;core  progressive  force  within  the   Senate.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You  are  a  Lone  Ranger,  unable   even   to   form   a   core   progressive   force   within   the   Senate,â&#x20AC;?   Nader   wrote.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without   internal   and   H[WHUQDO QHWZRUNLQJ WKHUH DUH no   strategies   to   deploy,   beyond

problem   from   the   start.   Sanders   PDGHKLV¿UVWSROLWLFDOPDUNDVWKH progressive   mayor   of   Burlington   in   the   1980s.   He   won   a   seat   in   Congress  in  1988  and  was  elected   to  the  Senate  in  2006.

The  awards  program,  which  was   redesigned   last   year   in   an   effort   to   reach   out   further   into   the   com-­ munity,   focuses   this   year,   and   in   subsequent   even-­numbered   years,   on   recognizing   teachers,   volun-­ teers,   artists   and   supporters   of   the   visual   arts   in   the   county   for   their   achievements.  This  year  and  every   year  the  program  will  also  honor  a   Middlebury  College  student  whose   DFKLHYHPHQWLQWKHÂżHOGRIWKHYL-­ sual   arts   deserves   special   recogni-­ tion.

Next   year,   and   in   subsequent   odd-­numbered   years,   recognition   will   focus   on   students   in   elemen-­ tary,   middle,   and   high   school   and   will   be   coordinated   with   district-­ wide   school   art   exhibits,   such   as   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spring   into   the  Arts,â&#x20AC;?   in   the  Ad-­ dison   Central   Supervisory   Union.  

The  awards  will  alternate  annually   thereafter  between  the  adults  in  the   community  and  the  school  popula-­ tion. Nominations  will  be  reviewed  by   a  committee  of  Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  members,   and   the   awards   will   be   presented   at   the   Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;   annual   dinner   on

Students of the Week from area High Schools Otter Valley Union High School Mount Abe Union High School Otter Valley Union High School congratulates Cortney Poljacik on being named Student of the Week. Cortney lives in Pittsford with her parents, Mark Poljacik and Lorna Poljacik. Her sister, Kelsey, is a sophomore at Cornell University majoring in natural resources applied ecology. Throughout her high school career, Cortney has consistently made honor roll. She says she is always excited about enrolling in Advanced Placement classes, her favorite one being the AP Biology class she took last year as a junior, as well as the Advanced Anatomy and AP Literature classes she is currently enrolled in. Cortney has been a three-season athlete since she started attending school at Otter Valley in seventh grade. She has played soccer, basketball and softball, at both the JV and varsity levels. Last summer Cortney worked in the kitchen at Songadeewin Camp on Lake Dunmore, but this summer she is hoping to work at Rutland Intermediate School with the Tapestry program, where she will be working with kids all day. During her days off she occasionally gets the opCortney  Poljacik portunity to volunteer with her mother, a third-grade teacher at Rutland      O.V.U.H.S Intermediate School, where she has been able to experience what it is like to be a third-grade teacher. In her spare time, Cortney enjoys reading, baking and being outdoors, whether hiking, swimming, walking her dogs or swinging. She says she enjoys anything she does outside. When asked what she has learned from her high school experience, Cortney says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned to be myself, because someone will always be skeptical of what I choose to do, and to make my experience here one that I could enjoy. If I were to give upcoming students advice for high school, I would tell them to make the most of their experience here and anywhere they go, as well as to not worry so much about othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opinions.â&#x20AC;? After high school, Cortney plans to major in secondary education, focusing on English. She says she has always liked the idea of becoming a high school teacher. 7KH2WWHU9DOOH\FRPPXQLW\ZLVKHVWKLVĂ&#x20AC;QH\RXQJZRPDQWKHEHVWLQKHUIXWXUH

Mount Abraham Union High School proudly names Meghan Livingston as its Student of the Week. Meghan lives with her parents in Bristol. She has three older sisters: Laura will be graduating from Castleton State College in May, Sarah graduated from Ithaca College in 2009 and Chrissy graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2010. Meghan achieved academic excellence in grades 9-11, making highest or high honors throughout those years. During her junior year, she was invited to attend the Vermont Athletic Directorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; annual Leadership Conference. This year she is taking AP Biology and AP Calculus as well as an advanced math seminar class. Meghan played basketball all four years of high school and was captain as a senior. She has played soccer and softball throughout high school and was softball captain as a junior and soccer captain as a senior. For the past two summers, Meghan has worked at the Bristol Village Creeme Stand. She is a member of the Bristol Federated Church and Meghan  Livingston helps serve at dinner or breakfasts that take place there. This fall, M.A.U.H.S. she helped package meals for children in Haiti. She is also an active participant in YoungLife at Addison County and enjoys going to club time, which is typically once a week. Outside of school, Meghan enjoys playing basketball, being with family and friends, taking her dogs for walks and running. When asked to give advice to other students, Meghan said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have learned that high school is a place where you learn and grow as an individual, and that you should enjoy every moment because it really is only a short clip of your life when you look back.â&#x20AC;? After high school, Meghan plans to go to college as a nursing major, and then further her education to become a nurse practitioner. $FFRUGLQJWRKHUVFKRROFRXQVHORU$ODQ.DPPDQ´0HJKDQLVDFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQW\RXQJZRPDQZKRGLVSOD\VGULYHDQGGHWHUPLQDWLRQ in everything she does. â&#x20AC;Ś She is focused, motivated by success, and always gives 100-plus percent. â&#x20AC;Ś She is a quality person who has the ability to be successful at whatever she undertakes.â&#x20AC;?

The Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dogs are lovers of all things Irish, and believe that there are only two kinds of canines in the world, the Irish, and those who wish they were. When not out chasing leprechauns, kissing the Blarney Stone, or dancing jigs, they can be found enjoying corned beef and cabbage, soda bread, and their personal favorite, Chicken oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Sea. Their more scholarly pursuits include reading John

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Haira,â&#x20AC;? Oscar (Gone) Wild, and the Collected Works of W.B. Yeats, Canine Edition. The Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dogs leave you with their favorite Irish blessing: â&#x20AC;&#x153;May the chicken be digested in yer stomach before yer owners know ya stole it.â&#x20AC;? Judi Fisher Panton
