Saving Â the Â GOPâ€™s Â sinking Â ship
Pipeline Â isnâ€™t a Â top Â concern
When Â the Â Republican Â Party Â elected Â David Â Sunderland Â as Â its Â new Â party Â leader Â last Â Saturday Â in Â what Â was Â described Â as Â a Â contentious Â meeting, Â it Â was Â also, Â as Â Sunderland Â said, Â a Â deliberate Â change Â in Â direction. Â â€œI Â think Â today Â what Â we Â can Â take Â away Â from Â this Â is Â that Â the Â Vermont Â Repub-Â lican Â Party Â has Â voted Â for Â change Â â€” Â a Â change Â in Â direction, Â a Â change Â in Â tone,â€? Â he Â said Â after Â the Â vote, Â â€œand Â we Â plan Â on Â going Â forward.â€? 7KHHOHFWLRQGUHZSUHVVFRYHUDJHEHFDXVHRISDUW\LQÂżJKWLQJDQGSXEOLF differences Â aired Â by Â those Â supporting Â a Â more Â moderate Â perspective Â versus Â the Â more Â conservative Â views Â that Â are Â represented Â by Â the Â national Â Republican Â Party. Â During Â the Â meeting Â last Â Saturday, Â speaker Â after Â speaker Â urged Â party Â unity. Â Sunderlandâ€™s Â election Â promises Â to Â do Â just Â that. Â In Â an Â in-Âdepth Â interview Â in Â todayâ€™s Â Addison Â Independent, Â Sunderland Â elaborates Â on Â why Â heâ€™s Â optimistic Â that Â the Â Republican Â Party Â can Â rebuild Â in Â Vermont Â and Â why Â itâ€™s Â important. Â In Â both Â cases, Â heâ€™s Â right Â on Â target. It Â is Â vital Â to Â democracy Â to Â have Â a Â strong Â minority Â party. Â As Â it Â is Â today, Â with Â just Â 48 Â seats Â out Â of Â 150 Â in Â the Â House Â and Â seven Â of Â 30 Â seats Â in Â the Â Senate, Â the Â Republican Â Party Â has Â no Â effective Â voice. Â That Â weakness Â prevents Â a Â more Â thorough Â and Â critical Â discussion Â of Â the Â major Â ideas Â proposed Â by Â the Â gover-Â QRUÂśVDGPLQLVWUDWLRQDQGWKH/HJLVODWXUH It Â is Â also Â true Â that Â politics Â follow Â a Â pendulum-Âlike Â cycle Â and Â when Â one Â party Â moves Â too Â far Â in Â one Â direction, Â politics Â start Â to Â swing Â back Â toward Â the Â center. Â Republicans, Â in Â other Â words, Â are Â likely Â to Â see Â their Â political Â fortunes Â LPSURYHDVWKHFKDQJHVHQDFWHGXQGHUWKHFXUUHQWDGPLQLVWUDWLRQDQG/HJLV-Â lature Â meet Â with Â resistance Â and Â disappointment. Â But Â it Â is Â not Â a Â given. Â If Â the Â Vermont Â GOP Â were Â to Â insist Â on Â pressing Â the Â social Â agenda Â of Â the Â national Â party, Â it Â would Â continue Â its Â steady Â decline. Â And Â if Â Vermont Â Repub-Â licans Â were Â to Â adopt Â the Â national Â partyâ€™s Â extreme Â partisanship, Â it Â would Â also Â continue Â its Â decline. Â Sunderland Â recognizes Â that Â and Â seems Â to Â embrace Â a Â more Â pragmatic, Â and Â less Â dogmatic Â approach. Â Among Â the Â issues Â Sunderland Â says Â Republicans Â here Â need Â to Â tackle, Â he Â cites Â the Â high Â cost Â of Â living, Â an Â education Â system Â that Â is Â unduly Â expensive, Â SHQVLRQVWKDWDUHXQGHUIXQGHGDQGDJURZLQJEXGJHWGHÂżFLW$OODUHLVVXHV that Â a Â strong Â Republican Â Party Â can Â champion Â and Â work Â with Â Democrats Â to Â achieve Â a Â better Â outcome Â for Â Vermont. To Â be Â successful, Â however, Â Sunderland Â and Â his Â party Â will Â have Â to Â be Â put Â forward Â ideas Â that Â work Â and Â solve Â current Â problems. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â enough Â to Â criti-Â cize Â the Â move Â toward Â a Â single-Âpayer Â health Â care Â system Â without Â also Â admit-Â ting Â previous Â shortcomings Â and Â proposing Â a Â solution. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â enough Â to Â criti-Â cize Â the Â stateâ€™s Â education Â funding Â mechanism Â without Â also Â crafting Â a Â counter Â proposal Â that Â provides Â an Â equal Â education Â to Â all Â Vermont Â students. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â HQRXJKWREHPRDQWKHVWDWHÂśVGHÂżFLWZLWKRXWDOVRDFFHSWLQJUHVSRQVLELOLW\IRU taking Â care Â of Â the Â poor, Â sick, Â underemployed Â and Â others Â in Â need. To Â be Â a Â party Â with Â a Â future, Â Republicans Â will Â have Â to Â embrace Â a Â positive Â DJHQGDWKDWWDFNOHVÂżQDQFLDOLVVXHVZKLOHDOVRKHOSLQJVROYHVRFLDOLOOV Sunderland Â might Â also Â want Â to Â put Â a Â lid Â on Â some Â of Â their Â most Â vocal Â cheer-Â leaders, Â like Â GOP Â national Â committeeman Â Jay Â Shepard, Â who Â cast Â a Â familiar Â pall Â on Â the Â party Â when Â he Â pled Â for Â unity: Â â€œOur Â enemy Â is Â not Â in Â this Â room,â€? Â he Â told Â fellow Â Republicans Â last Â Saturday. Â â€œAs Â we Â sit Â here, Â the Â Democrats Â are Â planning Â another Â step Â in Â taking Â away Â our Â freedoms, Â our Â liberties Â and Â our Â way Â of Â life. Â Those Â are Â the Â people Â that Â are Â the Â real Â threatâ€Ś Â We Â need Â to Â know Â who Â the Â real Â enemy Â is. Â Iâ€™ll Â tell Â you Â right Â now, Â the Â worst Â Republican Â I Â know Â is Â a Â much Â better Â person Â than Â Barack Â Obama.â€? In Â response, Â we Â hope Â Sunderland Â let Â out Â an Â audible Â sign Â of Â despair, Â then Â hoisted Â up Â his Â belt Â for Â the Â struggle Â ahead. Â As Â well Â as Â a Â good Â sense Â of Â humor, Â a Â steady Â hand Â on Â party Â policy Â and Â the Â cleverness Â of Â a Â public Â relations Â guru, Â Sunderland Â might Â also Â need Â a Â long Â shepherdâ€™s Â crook Â to Â pull Â a Â few Â of Â his Â ZRXOGEHIULHQGVRIIVWDJHEHIRUHWKH\VLQNDERDWWKDWLVEDUHO\DĂ€RDW
So Â we Â had Â a Â meeting Â Tuesday, Â Nov. Â 5, Â to Â get Â an Â update Â from Â Vermont Â Gas Â and Â give Â input Â to Â a Â possible Â Memo-Â randum Â of Â Understanding Â (MOU) Â from Â the Â selectboard. Â Everybody Â was Â polite, Â well Â mannered Â and Â mostly Â on Â topic, Â so Â I Â never Â gave Â my Â little Â speech. Â Here Â it Â is: â€œWe Â had Â a Â family Â wedding Â at Â the Â house Â in Â July Â with Â visitors Â from Â sev-Â eral Â cities Â that Â have Â had Â recent Â experi-Â ence Â with Â violence Â and Â tragedy. Â When Â they Â saw Â the Â sign Â â€˜Keep Â Shoreham Â Safe,â€™ Â they Â thought Â we Â had Â a Â serial Â killer Â on Â the Â loose. Â After Â explaining Â that Â it Â was Â about Â the Â natural Â gas Â pipe-Â line Â they Â just Â smiled, Â content Â to Â be Â in Â Vermont Â for Â a Â couple Â of Â happy Â days. â€œNatural Â gas Â is Â maybe Â not Â the Â per-Â fect Â solution Â â€” Â we Â may Â all Â pass Â away Â before Â perfection Â arrives Â â€” Â but Â is Â a Â heck Â of Â a Â lot Â cleaner Â and Â cheaper, Â for Â equivalent Â BTUs, Â than Â the Â dirty Â heat-Â ing Â fuels Â used Â today. Â It Â would Â be Â great Â if Â some Â of Â the Â energy Â used Â on Â pipeline Â issues Â could Â be Â rechanneled Â on Â other Â real Â issues Â facing Â Addison Â County Â â€” Â livable Â wages, Â substance Â abuse, Â health, Â hunger, Â housing, Â education Â and Â yes, Â also Â the Â energy Â environment.â€?

A Â second Â opportunity Â is Â to Â engage Â the Â public Â in Â the Â discussion Â of Â the Â pros Â and Â cons Â of Â this Â particular Â site, Â which Â will Â inevitably Â also Â include Â comments Â and Â discussion Â of Â the Â overall Â project. Â There Â is Â time Â to Â do Â so. Â But Â it Â will Â also Â be Â important Â for Â the Â public Â to Â stay Â on Â task, Â focusing Â on Â a Â ORFDWLRQIRUWKHUHFUHDWLRQDOFHQWHULWVJHQHUDOGHVLJQDQGWUDIÂżFĂ€RZ,IWKDW LVWKHWDVNDWKDQGZHÂśUHFRQÂżGHQWWKHDUFKLWHFWVDQGWKHVWHHULQJFRPPLWWHH in Â charge Â â€” Â along Â wth Â ample Â community Â discussion Â â€” Â can Â reach Â a Â suitable Â solution Â in Â time Â for Â the Â vote Â at Â Town Â Meeting. In Â this Â process, Â two Â things Â should Â be Â kept Â in Â mind: Â Â‡$IWHUPXFKFRQWHQWLRXVGHEDWHDPDMRULW\RIWKHVHOHFWERDUGZLWKRQH opposed Â out Â of Â seven) Â did Â agree Â to Â bring Â to Â a Â vote Â the Â agreement Â between Â the Â town Â and Â college Â that Â will Â allow Â town Â residents Â to Â build Â a Â new Â recreational Â center Â and Â town Â hall Â â€” Â as Â well Â as Â accomplish Â other Â important Â objectives Â â€” Â at Â a Â very Â affordable Â cost Â to Â taxpayers. Â Thatâ€™s Â a Â decision Â that Â should Â be Â allowed Â to Â take Â place Â on Â Town Â Meeting Â Day Â with Â no Â further Â efforts Â to Â derail Â the Â vote.

Â That Â allows Â more Â time Â for Â community Â discussion Â on Â the Â intracies Â of Â each Â building Â and Â how Â they Â can Â meet Â community Â needs Â and Â aspirations.

Â On Â the Â importance Â of Â writing Â well Some Â years Â ago Â the Â author Â and Â historian Â David Â Mc-Â Cullough Â (â€œTruman,â€? Â â€œJohn Â Adams,â€? Â â€œ1776â€?) Â gave Â a Â lecture Â called Â â€œWhy Â History Â Matters.â€? Â In Â it, Â he Â talked Â about Â the Â importance Â of Â teaching Â American Â history Â and Â recounted Â the Â struggles Â and Â triumphs Â of Â the Â Founding Â Fathers. In Â the Â question-Âand-Âanswer Â portion Â a Â man Â asked Â Mc-Â Cullough Â what Â he Â thought Â about Â the Â fact Â that Â no Â one Â in Â this Â day Â and Â age Â writes Â letters, Â like Â Jefferson, Â Franklin Â and Â Adams Â did, Â and Â why Â no Â one Â today Â bothers Â with Â correct Â spelling Â and Â grammar. McCullough Â lamented Â the Â fact Â that Â few Â people Â keep Â a Â diary, Â write Â letters Â By Â Zach or Â otherwise Â express Â their Â thoughts Â Despart on Â paper. Â He Â said, Â â€œIn Â the Â process Â of Â writing Â we Â come Â up Â with Â the Â idea Â we Â didnâ€™t Â know Â we Â had. Â The Â mere Â act Â of Â writing Â focuses Â the Â brain Â in Â a Â way Â nothing Â else Â does.â€? And Â he Â is Â right. Â There Â is Â no Â greater Â skill Â than Â to Â be Â able Â to Â express Â oneself Â effectively. Â Nothing Â stirs Â the Â creative Â process, Â creates Â new Â ideas Â or Â expands Â the Â limits Â of Â the Â mind Â like Â putting Â pen Â to Â paper. Â I, Â of Â course, Â am Â biased Â in Â this Â matter Â because Â I Â have Â chosen Â to Â write Â for Â a Â living. Â But Â it Â remains Â true Â for Â everyone Â â€” Â the Â ability Â to Â articu-Â late Â an Â argument Â cogently Â expands Â well Â beyond Â journal-Â ism, Â into Â every Â personal Â and Â professional Â endeavor. :ULWLQJLVQRWHDV\DV+HPLQJZD\VDLGWKHÂżUVWGUDIW of Â anything Â is Â crap). Â The Â process Â is Â tedious Â and Â lone-Â some, Â and Â forces Â you Â to Â think Â critically. Â It Â is Â where Â big Â ideas Â are Â born.
Writing Â requires Â a Â sustained Â attention Â we, Â or Â at Â least Â people Â around Â my Â age Â (23), Â are Â not Â accustomed Â to. Â There Â are Â no Â shortcuts, Â and Â the Â only Â way Â to Â do Â it Â well Â is Â to Â do Â it Â all Â the Â time. Â But Â it Â is Â the Â greatest Â skill Â one Â can Â possess, Â and Â when Â done Â well Â is Â immensely Â satisfying. So Â I Â have Â a Â proposition. Â First, Â that Â everyone Â pick Â up Â a Â pen Â and Â write Â something Â every Â week. Â It Â doesnâ€™t Â have Â to Â be Â pages Â and Â pages Â of Â prose. Â It Â can Â be Â something Â simple, Â like Â a Â letter Â to Â a Â friend Â or Â relative, Â an Â entry Â in Â a Â diary, Â an Â observation Â of Â something Â you Â saw, Â a Â letter Â to Â the Â editor Â for Â the Â Independent. Â It Â might Â be Â enjoyable Â or Â it Â might Â be Â dull. Â It Â might Â be Â great, Â or Â it Â might Â be Â crap. Â But Â you Â will Â be Â a Â smarter Â person Â for Â it. Second Â â€” Â and Â this Â is Â mostly Â di-Â rected Â at Â younger Â people Â â€” Â (re)learn Â cursive. Â My Â third-Âgrade Â teacher, Â Mrs. Â Van Â Oort, Â drilled Â cursive Â into Â us Â and Â said Â weâ€™d Â need Â it Â as Â adults. Â My Â class Â thought Â this Â was Â silly, Â and Â being Â left Â handed Â and Â writing Â in Â pencil, Â I Â smudged Â everything Â to Â all Â hell Â anyway. Â It Â is Â true, Â you Â donâ€™t Â need Â to Â know Â cursive Â to Â function Â in Â the Â world. Â But Â you Â should.

I Â see Â that Â farmers Â in Â Switzerland Â are Â having Â the Â same Â problems Â we Â have Â in Â Vermont, Â trash Â along Â the Â highway. Â Their Â cows Â are Â dying Â from Â eating Â chopped Â up Â trash. Â Their Â machines Â pick Â up Â the Â trash Â with Â hay Â and Â chop Â it Â up Â into Â feed Â which Â kills Â the Â cows. Â The Â Swiss Â value Â their Â cows Â to Â help Â produce Â the Â famous Â cheeses Â from Â that Â region, Â and Â the Â Swiss Â are Â known Â for Â cleanliness Â and Â neatness. How Â many Â cows Â have Â been Â killed Â by Â trash Â in Â Addison Â County? I Â have Â been Â trying Â to Â get Â our Â local Â legislators Â excited Â about Â reducing Â roadside Â trash, Â by Â improving Â our Â re-Â WXUQDEOHERWWOHELOO,ÂżQGERWWOHVDORQJ the Â road Â that Â are Â returnable Â in Â Maine Â and Â Hawaii Â and Â other Â states Â but Â not Â in Â Vermont. Why Â not? I Â have Â asked Â our Â legislators Â why Â not Â and Â they Â mumble Â something Â about Â the Â effect Â on Â local Â stores Â or Â something. Why Â isnâ€™t Â a Â McDonalds Â coffee Â pa-Â per Â cup Â returnable? Â McDonalds Â Corp. Â is Â rich Â enough Â to Â pay Â its Â CEO Â mil-Â lions, Â but Â its Â workers Â get Â paid Â poverty Â wages. Â (But Â that Â is Â a Â whole Â different Â matter Â about Â if Â a Â company Â needs Â slave Â labor Â to Â stay Â in Â business, Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â deserve Â to Â be Â in Â business.) So, Â lets Â get Â together Â and Â talk Â to Â our Â legislators Â about Â cleaning Â up Â our Â highways, Â starting Â with Â an Â improved Â returnable Â bill Â for Â bottles Â and Â coffee Â cups Â and Â water Â bottles Â and Â whatever Â ZHÂżQGDORQJWKHURDG$QGWKHQKRZ do Â we Â train Â people Â that Â their Â mothers Â donâ€™t Â follow Â after Â them Â so Â they Â have Â to Â pick Â up Â after Â themselves?

The Â nation Â could Â use Â a Â new Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill 7KLVIDOO&RQJUHVVKDVDQLP-Â portant Â opportunity Â to Â create Â jobs Â and Â grow Â the Â economy Â by Â passing Â a Â long-Âterm, Â comprehensive Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill. Â The Â Vermont Â &RQJUHVVLRQDO'HOHJDWLRQÂ˛6HQ /HDK\6HQ6DQGHUVDQG5HS:HOFK â€” Â are Â working Â hard Â to Â pass Â the Â Farm Â Bill Â because Â they Â know Â it Â af-Â fects Â every Â American, Â every Â day, Â by Â providing Â a Â wide Â range Â of Â programs Â that Â strengthen Â our Â nation. The Â Farm Â Bill Â is Â crucial Â to Â main-Â taining Â a Â strong Â agricultural Â sector Â and Â an Â abundant Â food Â supply Â that Â EHQHÂżWDOO$PHULFDQV2YHUWKHSDVW two Â years, Â producers Â have Â faced Â a Â multitude Â of Â disasters Â â€” Â including Â GURXJKWĂ€RRGLQJDQGEOL]]DUGV These Â events Â demonstrate Â how Â im-Â portant Â the Â safety Â net Â is Â to Â keeping Â producers Â going Â strong. Â Under Â the Â 2008 Â Farm Â Bill, Â the Â Farm Â Service Â Agency Â was Â able Â to Â provide Â over Â $12 Â million Â in Â disaster Â assistance Â in Â Vermont Â farmers Â using Â Farm Â Bill Â programs. A Â new Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill Â would Â provide Â a Â new Â dairy Â program Â supported Â by Â Vermont Â dairy Â farm-Â ers, Â a Â strong Â crop Â insurance Â pro-Â gram, Â reauthorize Â the Â now-Âexpired Â disaster Â assistance Â programs, Â and Â provide Â retroactive Â assistance Â for Â livestock Â producers. Â By Â reforming Â the Â safety Â net Â to Â eliminate Â the Â direct Â payment Â program Â â€” Â which Â pays Â producers Â whether Â or Â not Â they Â are Â
in Â need Â of Â assistance Â â€” Â the Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill Â would Â also Â save Â billions Â of Â dollars Â in Â the Â next Â decade. In Â addition, Â it Â would Â allow Â USDA Â to Â continue Â export Â promotion Â efforts Â WKDWKDYHOHGWRWKHEHVWÂżYH\HDU period Â in Â agricultural Â trade Â in Â American Â history, Â and Â provide Â FSA Â with Â the Â tools Â to Â extend Â additional Â farm Â credit Â in Â Vermont. The Â Farm Â Bill Â is Â also Â a Â job Â creation Â bill Â that Â would Â empower Â USDA Â to Â partner Â with Â rural Â commu-Â nities Â to Â grow, Â expand Â and Â support Â new Â businesses. Â A Â new Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill Â would Â help Â Main Â Street Â businesses Â grow Â and Â hire Â more, Â strengthen Â infrastructure Â in Â our Â small Â towns Â and Â provide Â new Â opportunities Â in Â bio-Âbased Â product Â manufacturing Â and Â renewable Â ener-Â gy. Â For Â example, Â in Â Vermont, Â USDA Â has Â provided Â more Â than Â $10.2 Â million Â since Â 2009 Â to Â help Â farmers, Â ranchers Â and Â rural Â businesses Â save Â energy Â through Â the Â Rural Â Energy Â for Â America Â Program. Â This Â and Â many Â other Â efforts Â could Â continue Â with Â a Â new Â Farm Â Bill. A Â new Â Food, Â Farm Â and Â Jobs Â Bill Â would Â make Â important Â investments Â in Â nutrition Â programs Â that Â provide Â critical Â assistance Â to Â vulnerable Â Americans, Â including Â children, Â seniors, Â people Â with Â disabilities Â who Â are Â unable Â to Â work, Â and Â returning Â veterans.

Greg Â Dennis (Continued Â from Â Page Â 4A) was Â struck Â by Â how Â diminished Â the Â myth Â has Â become. Â Kennedy Â essentially Â lived Â a Â lie. Â And Â for Â many Â years Â during Â and Â after Â his Â presidency, Â we Â believed Â that Â lie. He Â was Â a Â courageous Â war Â hero, Â itâ€™s Â true, Â and Â he Â was Â indisputably Â good Â looking, Â charming, Â hardworking Â and Â IXQQ\ +H LQVSLUHG FRQÂżGHQFH DQG made Â America Â believe Â in Â a Â new Â gen-Â eration Â of Â leaders. But Â as Â the Â numerous Â histories Â and Â TV Â shows Â make Â clear, Â the Â public Â was Â fed Â â€” Â and Â bought Â â€” Â a Â steady Â series Â of Â untruths Â about Â the Â rest Â of Â his Â life. We Â can Â see Â now Â how Â recklessly Â he Â lived. Â We Â may Â never Â know Â if Â that Â recklessness Â led Â to Â his Â death. Â But Â it Â surely Â put Â the Â country Â in Â more Â peril. Kennedy Â didnâ€™t Â write Â most Â of Â Âł3URÂżOHVLQ&RXUDJHÂ´WKHERRNWKDW brought Â him Â so Â much Â acclaim. Â He Â was Â a Â lazy Â legislator Â as Â a Â congress-Â man Â and Â senator. Â Depicted Â as Â vig-Â orous Â and Â the Â picture Â of Â health, Â he Â suffered Â for Â much Â of Â his Â life Â from Â colitis, Â a Â debilitating Â intestinal Â dis-Â order. Â The Â powerful Â steroids Â used Â to Â treat Â the Â disease Â eroded Â his Â spine Â and Â left Â him Â in Â constant Â pain.
He Â also Â developed Â Addisonâ€™s Â dis-Â ease, Â a Â life-Âthreatening Â disorder Â of Â the Â adrenal Â glands. Â The Â steroids Â used Â to Â treat Â that Â disease Â further Â debilitat-Â ed Â him Â and Â left Â his Â skin Â a Â darkening Â yellow. Â His Â handlers Â passed Â it Â off Â as Â a Â perpetual Â tan. Â To Â deal Â with Â the Â severe Â back Â pain Â and Â fatigue, Â Kennedy Â had Â his Â own Â Dr. Â Feelgood, Â Max Â Jacobsen, Â inject Â him Â dozens Â of Â times Â with Â a Â mixture Â reported Â to Â contain Â amphetamines, Â bone Â marrow, Â human Â placenta, Â pain-Â killers, Â steroids Â and Â multivitamins.

Reaber-Spina, Hartman STARKSBORO Â â€” Â Susan Â Reaber Â and Â Frank Â Spina Â of Â Starksboro Â announce Â the Â engage-Â ment Â of Â their Â daughter Â Sarah Â Reaber-ÂSpina Â to Â Eric Â Hartman, Â son Â of Â Stan Â and Â Jodee Â Hartman Â of Â Lincoln. The Â wedding Â is Â planned Â for Â June Â 21, Â 2014, Â at Â the Â home Â of Â the Â brideâ€™s Â parents. Â
At Bixby: â€˜American Food Historyâ€™ focuses on modern eating habits VERGENNES Â â€” Â Food Â historian Â Abigail Â Carroll Â will Â present Â â€œAmerican Â Food Â History: Â From Â Dinner Â Pails Â to Â TV Â Dinnersâ€? Â at Â Bixby Â Memorial Â Library Â in Â Vergennes Â on Â Thursday, Â Nov. Â 21, Â at Â 7 Â p.m. Â as Â part Â of Â its Â Third Â Thursday Â series. Food Â is Â both Â a Â passion Â and Â a Â concern Â for Â many Â people Â in Â todayâ€™s Â fast-Âpaced Â world, Â whether Â they Â are Â reality Â food Â show Â junkies, Â amateur Â bakers Â blogging Â about Â their Â newest Â creations, Â parents Â concerned Â about Â their Â childâ€™s Â nutrition, Â DFWLYLVWV ÂżJKWLQJ IRU WUDQVSDUHQF\ LQ food Â labeling, Â or Â politicians Â pushing Â for Â food Â legislation Â to Â limit Â portion Â sizes Â at Â fast Â food Â restaurants. Â But Â the Â focus Â is Â mainly Â on Â what Â people Â eat Â rather Â than Â how Â they Â eat. From Â her Â new Â book Â â€œThree Â Squares: Â The Â Invention Â of Â the Â American Â Mealâ€? Â (Basic Â Books;Íž Â Sept. Â 10, Â 2013), Â food Â scholar Â and Â historian Â Abigail Â Carroll Â tells Â the Â story Â behind Â modern Â eating Â habits, Â serving Â up Â a Â soup-Âto-Ânuts Â history Â of Â the Â American Â meal, Â from Â pease Â porridge Â and Â cornmeal Â mush Â to Â tuna-Ânoodle Â casseroles Â and Â TV Â Time Â popcorn. Â Along Â the Â way Â she Â helps Â relieve Â the Â guilt Â many Â people Â feel Â over Â such Â supposed Â transgres-Â sions Â as Â repeatedly Â failing Â to Â keep Â to Â the Â â€œsacredâ€? Â family Â dinner, Â snacking Â between Â meals, Â and Â eating Â on Â the Â go. Carroll Â will Â explain Â that Â our Â eating Â habits Â have Â never Â been Â stable Â and Â that Â the Â eating Â patterns Â we Â try Â so Â hard Â to Â adhere Â to Â today Â are Â relatively Â recent Â inventions Â that Â evolved Â over Â time Â and Â will Â continue Â to Â evolve Â going Â forward. As Â Carroll Â demonstrates Â in Â â€œThree Â 6TXDUHVÂ´ D YDULHW\ RI LQĂ€XHQFHV Â˛ Native Â American, Â French Â and Â British Â

â€” Â formed Â our Â forebearsâ€™ Â eating Â habits Â and Â determined Â the Â way Â we Â dine Â today. Â Drawing Â on Â travel Â journals, Â early Â cookbooks, Â advertisements Â and Â a Â host Â of Â other Â primary Â sources, Â Carroll Â has Â made Â an Â in-Âdepth Â examination Â of Â the Â American Â meal. Â By Â understanding Â the Â history Â of Â the Â American Â meal, Â she Â explains, Â people Â can Â help Â determine Â its Â future. Carroll Â has Â taught Â in Â the Â Gastronomy Â Program Â at Â Boston Â University Â and Â has Â published Â articles Â in Â a Â variety Â of Â publi-Â cations, Â including Â The Â New Â York Â Times. Â She Â holds Â a Â PhD Â in Â American Â studies Â from Â Boston Â University Â and Â makes Â her Â home Â in Â Winooski.

Middlebury Â Actors Â Workshop Â wins Â grant Â to Â popularize Â Shakespeare MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Middlebury Â Actors Â Workshop Â has Â announced Â that Â it Â is Â the Â recipient Â of Â a Â $2,500 Â Vermont Â Community Â Foundation Â Small Â and Â Inspiring Â Grant Â Award Â to Â fund Â the Â companyâ€™s Â â€œStraight Â Up Â Shakespeareâ€? Â program Â in Â the Â 2014 Â season. â€œStraight Â Up Â Shakespeare: Â The Â Things Â We Â Do Â For Â Loveâ€? Â was Â created Â last Â winter Â by Â MAW Â Artistic Â Director Â Melissa Â Lourie Â and Â Town Â Hall Â Theaterâ€™s Â Education Â Director Â Lindsay Â Pontius, Â in Â association Â with Â Middlebury Â Union Â High Â School Â English Â teachers Â and Â a Â group Â of Â talented Â MAW Â actors. Â Â A Â delightful Â and Â fast-Âpaced Â collec-Â tion Â of Â Shakespeareâ€™s Â greatest Â and Â most Â accessible Â scenes, Â the Â original Â presenta-Â tion Â was Â piloted Â twice Â for Â local Â middle Â and Â high Â schools Â last Â season. Â Â Performed Â
by Â six Â actors, Â the Â show Â features Â scenes Â from Â much-Âtaught Â texts Â such Â as Â â€œRomeo Â & Â Juliet,â€? Â â€œMacBeth,â€? Â â€œMuch Â Ado,â€? Â â€œA Â Midsummer Â Nightâ€™s Â Dreamâ€? Â and Â others. Â The Â show Â is Â offered Â with Â accompa-Â nying Â workshops Â that Â engage Â students Â directly Â in Â the Â process Â of Â understand-Â ing Â and Â exploring Â Shakespeareâ€™s Â work. Â Â Students Â are Â invited Â to Â direct Â the Â scenes, Â a Â technique Â that Â allows Â them Â to Â see Â the Â results Â of Â their Â own Â ideas Â and Â choices Â in Â interpreting Â complex Â texts. This Â Small Â and Â Inspiring Â Grant Â will Â allow Â MAW Â to Â continue Â to Â grow Â the Â program, Â offering Â it Â to Â schools Â through-Â out Â Vermont. Â Â Middlebury Â Actors Â Workshop Â is Â a Â small Â professional Â theater Â ensemble Â now Â in Â itâ€™s Â 14th Â season, Â in Â residence Â at Â Town Â Hall Â Theater Â in Â Middlebury.

Â Look Â for Â a Â few Â sub-Âplots, Â mild Â complications, Â and Â lots Â of Â tender Â charm. Â â€œBad Â Grandpaâ€? Â asks Â us Â to Â remem-Â ber Â the Â time Â when Â boys Â we Â knew Â in Â fourth Â grade Â started Â making Â jokes Â about Â body Â parts Â and Â functions. Â Most Â boys Â pass Â quickly Â and Â mercifully Â through Â this Â passage Â to Â slightly Â more Â sophisticated Â humor Â but, Â alas, Â some Â never Â make Â the Â leap.

If Â you Â are Â of Â a Â certain Â age, Â you Â will Â remember Â Alan Â Funt Â turning Â his Â Can-Â did Â Camera Â on Â unsuspecting Â citizens Â on Â early Â television. Â Thatâ€™s Â what Â John-Â ny Â Knoxville Â does Â here, Â but Â itâ€™s Â out Â of Â sync Â with Â the Â culture Â we Â live Â in Â now.

Â Please Â also Â remember Â that Â antibacterial Â soaps Â are Â no Â more Â ef-Â fective Â than Â regular Â soaps. Â The Â best Â soap Â is Â the Â one Â that Â you Â use.
