A DDIS ON Â Â INDE P E NDEN T
to the Editor
Govâ€™s Â funding Â of Â the Â war Â on Â opiates Â hurts Â more Â than Â helps %\-RKQ5+XJKHV0' As Â an Â addiction Â psychiatrist, Â I Â clearly Â believe Â Vermont Â has Â an Â opiate Â problem Â that Â needs Â to Â be Â addressed, Â but Â cutting Â resources Â for Â Vermontâ€™s Â comprehensive Â tobacco Â control Â program Â to Â solve Â that Â problem Â isnâ€™t Â the Â right Â answer. Â Since Â 1999, Â Vermont Â has Â received Â about Â $30 Â million Â each Â year Â from Â the Â tobacco Â industry Â to Â atone Â for Â the Â damage Â it Â has Â done Â to Â Vermonters. Â From Â FY2001 Â to Â FY2004, Â the Â legislature Â allocated Â an Â average Â of Â $4.6 Â million Â a Â year Â for Â these Â funds Â for Â the Â stateâ€™s Â tobacco Â control Â program. Â In Â addition, Â the Â legislature Â placed Â a Â total Â of Â $21 Â million Â over Â four Â years Â in Â a Â trust Â fund Â to Â provide Â funding Â for Â future Â tobacco Â control Â efforts. Â At Â one Â point, Â it Â reached Â a Â high Â of Â $31 Â million Â due Â to Â interest Â accrued. Â However, Â the Â trust Â fund Â has Â been Â used Â over Â the Â years Â to Â patch Â budget Â holes Â and Â fund Â Medicaid Â and Â other Â program, Â cutting Â into Â the Â reserve. The Â governor Â recently Â proposed Â to Â allocate Â more Â expenditure Â to Â treat Â heroin Â and Â prescription Â drug Â problems Â in Â Vermont. Â As Â a Â physician Â who Â has Â treated Â such Â patients Â and Â as Â one Â who Â is Â aware Â that Â our Â treatment Â programs Â in Â Vermont Â have Â huge Â waiting Â lists, Â I Â congratulate Â the Â governor Â on Â this Â effort. Â However, Â I Â disagree Â with Â the Â governorâ€™s Â spending Â proposal Â that Â would: Â 1) Â wipe Â out Â the Â tobacco Â trust Â fund, Â 2) Â use Â up Â all Â of Â the Â $8.3 Â million Â Vermont Â received Â from Â the Â recent Â settlement Â with Â R. Â J. Â Reynolds Â over Â false Â advertising Â of Â its Â tobacco Â products, Â and Â 3) Â take Â DQRWKHUPLOOLRQLQIXQGVWKHVWDWHUHFHLYHGWKDWZHUHSUHYLRXVO\ withheld Â by Â the Â tobacco Â industry. Â Vermontâ€™s Â tobacco Â control Â program Â funding Â has Â already Â been Â cut Â by Â 39 Â percent Â since Â the Â program Â began. Â Future Â funding Â for Â the Â program Â also Â faces Â a Â real Â threat Â with Â an Â empty Â trust Â fund Â (yes, Â all Â $31 Â million Â will Â be Â gone) Â and Â the Â diversion Â of Â more Â than Â 80 Â percent Â of Â the Â tobacco Â payments Â to Â other Â uses. One Â major Â reason Â I Â have Â for Â disagreeing Â with Â the Â governorâ€™s Â budget Â is Â that Â smoking Â is Â one Â of Â the Â major Â causes Â of Â skyrocketing Â health Â care Â costs Â in Â Vermont. Â Vermont Â spends Â $348 Â million Â in Â annual Â health Â care Â costs Â related Â to Â smoking. Â Thus, Â stopping Â kids Â from Â starting Â smoking Â and Â motivating Â and Â helping Â adult Â smokers Â stop Â is, Â according Â to Â the Â US Â Surgeon Â General, Â the Â most Â cost Â effective Â ways Â to Â save Â lives Â and Â reduce Â health Â costs. Â Vermontâ€™s Â tobacco Â control Â program Â has Â been Â successful Â in Â preventing Â kids Â from Â beginning Â smoking, Â but Â experiences Â in Â other Â states Â clearly Â show Â that Â cutting Â tobacco Â program Â funding Â results Â in Â more Â kids Â beginning Â to Â smoke. A Â second Â reason Â is Â that Â cutting Â tobacco Â control Â funding Â will Â likely Â increase Â the Â prevalence Â of Â opiate Â addiction Â in Â Vermont. Â This Â is Â because Â tobacco Â use Â is Â a Â gateway Â to Â other Â drugs. Â Teenagers Â who Â begin Â smoking Â DUHWKUHHWRÂżYHWLPHVPRUHOLNHO\WRODWHUKDYHRSLDWHDQGRWKHUGUXJ problems Â that Â those Â who Â do Â not Â begin Â smoking. Â So, Â by Â eliminating Â the Â trust Â fund Â as Â a Â future Â source Â of Â funding Â for Â tobacco Â control, Â we Â will Â inadvertently Â make Â the Â opiate/drug Â problem Â worse. Â If Â the Â governor Â wants Â to Â re-Âallocate Â money Â to Â pay Â for Â drug Â abuse, Â I Â think Â it Â best Â not Â to Â use Â a Â strategy Â that Â will Â actually Â make Â opiate Â use Â worse. Â As Â proposed, Â the Â governorâ€™s Â budget Â represents Â a Â classic Â â€œstealing Â IURP3HWHUWRSD\3DXOÂ´DSSURDFK Isnâ€™t Â there Â some Â way Â to Â fund Â drug Â abuse Â treatment Â and Â also Â continue Â a Â successful Â tobacco Â program?

But Â it Â also Â has Â a Â few Â drawbacks: Â the Â college Â has Â said Â that Â no Â other Â SURMHFWVKRXOGH[SHFWÂżQDQFLDOVXSSRUWIURPWKHFROOHJHWKHUHIRUH making Â the Â proposal Â almost Â twice Â as Â costly Â to Â taxpayers);Íž Â it Â moves Â the Â municipal Â building Â out Â of Â the Â downtown;Íž Â and, Â among Â others, Â it Â doesnâ€™t Â VROYH8'ÂśVSUREOHPZLWKWKHGLODSLGDWHG$PHULFDQ/HJLRQIDFLOLW\QRU provide Â locker Â room Â facilities Â for Â student Â athletes. The Â biggest Â drawback Â is Â moving Â the Â municipal Â building Â out Â of Â the Â downtown. Â Of Â all Â the Â citizen Â input Â gathered Â in Â meetings Â over Â the Â past Â \HDUVWKHRQHFRQVLVWHQWPHVVDJHZDVWRNHHSWKHWRZQRIÂżFHV GRZQWRZQ'RQHULJKWDQHZPXQLFLSDOEXLOGLQJRQWKH2VERUQHVLWH adds Â a Â pleasing Â and Â prestigious Â architectural Â aesthetic Â to Â the Â southern Â approach Â to Â the Â downtown, Â and Â creates Â greater Â public Â use Â of Â municipal Â facilities.That Â vision, Â at Â an Â affordable Â cost, Â drove Â the Â majority Â opinion. What Â the Â community Â should Â avoid, Â as Â we Â embark Â on Â this Â next Â round Â of Â discussion, Â is Â considering Â Mr. Â Brushâ€™s Â petition Â as Â bothersome Â or Â unwanted. Â It Â is Â part Â of Â the Â democratic Â process Â and Â the Â community Â can Â use Â it Â as Â a Â way Â to Â better Â understand Â the Â current Â proposal Â passed Â on Â March Â 4, Â as Â well Â as Â other Â options.

Â that Â if Â he Â runs Â for Â president, Â his Â campaign Â would Â emphasize Â â€œthe Â collapse Â of Â the Â middle Â class, Â more Â people Â living Â in Â poverty, Â the Â growing Â gap Â between Â the Â By Â Eric Â L.

Â He Â would Â also Â talk Â about Â the Â growing Â disconnect Â between Â the Â political Â process Â and Â important Â constituencies, Â especially Â the Â white Â working Â class. Â Sanders Â argues Â that Â white Â working-Âclass Â Americans Â either Â have Â given Â up Â on Â politics, Â or Â vote Â against Â their Â interests Â by Â supporting Â Republican Â candidates, Â for Â three Â reasons. Â First, Â coverage Â of Â politics Â in Â the Â mainstream Â me-Â dia Â is Â increasingly Â focused Â on Â personalities Â rather Â than Â is-Â sues: Â â€œChris Â Christieâ€™s Â weight Â or Â Hillaryâ€™s Â latest Â hairdo.â€?

Â he Â needs Â to Â answer Â that Â question Â if Â he Â decides Â to Â become Â a Â presidential Â candidate.

Be Â aware of Â walkers and Â bikers this Â spring Springtime Â means Â warmer Â weather Â and Â more Â people Â out Â walk-Â ing, Â running, Â biking Â and Â doing Â the Â things Â we Â love. Â But Â with Â few Â side-Â walks Â outside Â of Â downtown Â areas, Â and Â limited Â access Â to Â shared Â use Â paths, Â this Â also Â means Â more Â people Â sharing Â our Â roads, Â and Â the Â potential Â for Â serious Â accidents. Â In Â the Â past Â year Â in Â Addison Â County Â alone, Â there Â have Â been Â nu-Â merous Â bicycle-Âversus-Âmotor Â ve-Â hicle Â and Â pedestrian-Âversus-Âmotor Â vehicle Â accidents, Â some Â of Â them Â fatal. Â These Â tragedies Â are Â largely Â preventable. Â As Â a Â long Â distance Â runner, Â I Â can-Â not Â count Â the Â number Â of Â times Â Iâ€™ve Â almost Â been Â hit Â by Â cars Â on Â our Â lo-Â cal Â roads. Â I Â hear Â about Â it Â from Â my Â patients Â too, Â and Â not Â just Â from Â the Â runners Â and Â bicyclists Â â€” Â motorists Â are Â frustrated Â and Â scared Â that Â they Â will Â hit Â someone, Â and Â not Â because Â they Â are Â distracted Â drivers. Â Weâ€™ve Â all Â probably Â had Â a Â pedes-Â trian Â dart Â out Â in Â a Â crosswalk Â when Â we Â didnâ€™t Â expect Â it, Â and Â weâ€™ve Â all Â probably Â seen Â a Â bicyclist Â in Â town Â blow Â through Â an Â intersection Â with-Â RXW UHJDUG WR WKH WUDIÂżF VLJQDOV WUDIÂżFSDWWHUQVRUSHGHVWULDQFURVV-Â walks. Â In Â the Â end, Â what Â both Â the Â runners Â and Â motorists Â tell Â me Â is: Â â€œThey Â should Â be Â watching Â out Â for Â me!â€? The Â Vermont Â Department Â of Â Mo-Â tor Â Vehicles Â has Â a Â nice Â quote Â buried Â in Â some Â of Â their Â literature Â on Â this Â topic: Â â€œSafety Â is Â a Â culture Â that Â be-Â gins Â with Â personal Â responsibility.â€? Â I Â think Â thatâ€™s Â a Â nice Â way Â to Â frame Â this Â issue Â for Â what Â it Â is Â â€” Â one Â of Â
personal Â responsibility Â both Â in Â how Â you Â act Â on Â the Â road, Â and Â how Â you Â act Â toward Â others Â who Â share Â the Â road. Â Â I Â hope Â the Â following Â tips Â are Â a Â useful Â reminder Â of Â how Â we Â can Â share Â our Â roads Â for Â the Â safety Â and Â well-Âbeing Â of Â our Â communities. What Â can Â I Â do Â as Â a Â bicyclist? :HDU D SURSHU ÂżWWLQJ KHOPHW Each Â year Â in Â the Â U.S., Â there Â are Â more Â than Â 50,000 Â accidents Â be-Â tween Â bicycles Â and Â cars Â and Â more Â than Â 600 Â deaths. Â Helmets Â would Â prevent Â more Â than Â 80 Â percent Â of Â all Â bicycle Â injuries, Â and Â yet Â less Â than Â 20 Â percent Â of Â all Â bike Â users Â wear Â a Â helmet Â regularly. Â Â Wear Â bright Â clothes Â to Â make Â yourself Â visible. Â If Â biking Â in Â dark-Â HU KRXUV ZHDU UHĂ€HFWLYH JHDU DQG lights. Â This Â is Â required Â by Â Vermont Â law. 2EH\ WUDIÂżF UXOHV DQG PDNH your Â actions Â predictable Â for Â others Â around Â you. Â Bicyclists Â should Â al-Â ZD\VULGHZLWKWKHĂ€RZRIWUDIÂżF It Â is Â legal, Â and Â sometimes Â safest, Â for Â a Â bicyclist Â to Â â€œtake Â the Â lane.â€? Â If Â a Â bicyclist Â is Â continuing Â through Â an Â intersection Â where Â there Â is Â also Â a Â turning Â lane, Â it Â makes Â sense Â for Â a Â bicyclist Â to Â join Â cars Â in Â the Â through Â lane. Â Again, Â as Â a Â cyclist, Â make Â your Â actions Â predictable Â and Â communi-Â cate Â with Â the Â cars Â around Â you Â so Â everyone Â can Â stay Â safe. Â What Â can Â I Â do Â as Â a Â walker/ runner? Use Â sidewalks Â and Â second-Â ary Â roads Â when Â possible. Â Each Â year Â in Â the Â U.S., Â more Â than Â 4,000 Â pedestrians Â die Â in Â car Â accidents Â and Â more Â than Â 70,000 Â are Â injured. Â Wear Â bright Â clothes Â to Â make Â yourself Â visible. Â If Â walking/running Â in Â darker Â hours, Â wear Â UHĂ€HFWLYH JHDU DQG lights. Â Â Pay Â attention! Â Runners Â have Â a Â way Â of Â â€œzoning Â outâ€? Â or Â â€œgetting Â in Â a Â grooveâ€? Â as Â some Â call Â it. Â With Â this, Â plus Â having Â headphones Â in, Â or Â hav-Â ing Â a Â conversation Â with Â a Â running Â buddy, Â plus Â some Â nice Â scenery, Â it Â is Â easy Â to Â become Â unaware Â of Â whatâ€™s Â around Â you Â and Â get Â hurt. Use Â crosswalks Â responsi-Â bly. Â Never Â assume Â the Â car Â is Â going Â to Â stop Â for Â you. Â Remember Â that Â Vermont Â law Â
gives Â pedestrians Â the Â right Â of Â way Â within Â a Â crosswalk, Â however: Â â€œNo Â pedestrian Â may Â suddenly Â leave Â a Â curb Â or Â other Â place Â of Â safety Â and Â walk Â or Â run Â into Â the Â path Â of Â a Â ve-Â hicle Â which Â is Â so Â close Â that Â it Â is Â impossible Â for Â a Â driver Â to Â yield.â€? Â Again, Â as Â a Â pedestrian, Â never Â as-Â sume Â a Â car Â is Â going Â to Â stop. What Â can Â I Â do Â as Â a Â driver? Be Â aware. Â Expect Â that Â you Â are Â going Â to Â be Â sharing Â the Â road Â with Â RWKHUVDQGUHFRJQL]HVSHFLÂżFVLWX-Â ations Â that Â you Â may Â be Â driving Â into. Â A Â good Â example Â is Â when Â a Â bicy-Â clist Â â€œtakes Â the Â lane,â€? Â as Â discussed Â above. Slow Â down. Â You Â have Â an Â 85 Â per-Â cent Â chance Â of Â killing Â a Â pedestrian Â if Â you Â strike Â them Â going Â 40 Â miles Â per Â hour. Â You Â have Â a Â 5 Â percent Â chance Â of Â killing Â a Â pedestrian Â if Â you Â strike Â them Â going Â 20 Â miles Â per Â hour. Â Where Â can Â I Â get Â more Â informa-Â tion?

Truck driver may face criminal charges ADDISON Â COUNTY Â â€” Â Ver-Â mont Â State Â Police Â are Â considering Â FULPLQDO FKDUJHV LQ D WUDIÂżF PLV-Â hap Â in Â which Â the Â wheels Â came Â off Â a Â tractor-Âtrailer Â on Â Route Â 7 Â in Â Ferris-Â burgh Â and Â struck Â a Â Toyota Â Corolla, Â resulting Â in Â a Â crash Â that Â totaled Â the Â car Â and Â sent Â its Â driver Â to Â the Â hos-Â pital. Police Â report Â that Â Eres Â Karic, Â 53, Â of Â South Â Burlington Â was Â driving Â a Â tractor-Âtrailer Â southbound Â on Â Route Â 7 Â not Â far Â from Â the Â Rokeby Â Museum Â on Â Monday Â at Â a Â little Â after Â 8 Â p.m. Â when Â two Â of Â the Â tires Â came Â off Â the Â truck. Â The Â tires Â continued Â travel-Â ing Â south Â on Â Route Â 7 Â and Â collided Â with Â the Â northbound Â Corolla Â driven Â by Â Laura Â E. Â Socinski, Â 44, Â of Â North Â Ferrisburgh. Â Socinski Â was Â trans-Â ported Â to Â Fletcher Â Allen Â Health Â Care Â in Â Burlington Â for Â treatment Â of Â undisclosed Â injuries. The Â tractor-Âtrailer Â sustained Â mi-Â nor Â damage Â to Â its Â undercarriage. Senior Â Trooper Â Joe Â Szarejko Â re-Â ported Â early Â Tuesday Â morning Â that Â criminal Â charges Â were Â pending. Meanwhile, Â troopers Â at Â the Â New Â Haven Â state Â police Â barracks Â were Â EXV\ZLWKFDOOVWRPDQ\WUDIÂżFDF-Â cidents Â attributed Â to Â heavy Â snow Â during Â and Â just Â after Â last Â weekâ€™s Â big Â snowstorm. Last Â Wednesday, Â March Â 12, Â start-Â ed Â out Â with Â Trooper Â Eden Â Neary Â responding Â to Â Route Â 116 Â in Â Bristol Â at Â 7:20 Â a.m. Â for Â a Â reported Â single-Â vehicle Â crash. Â The Â trooper Â re-Â ported Â that Â Kelly Â Bellinger, Â 53, Â of Â Salisbury Â lost Â control Â of Â the Â 2007 Â Dodge Â Caliber Â she Â was Â driving Â northbound Â on Â the Â snow-Âcovered Â Route Â 116. Â The Â vehicle Â traveled Â off Â the Â west Â side Â of Â the Â road Â and Â struck Â a Â fence Â post. Â Bellinger Â was Â not Â injured. Â The Â Caliber Â had Â to Â be Â removed Â from Â the Â scene Â by Â a Â tow Â truck. Later Â that Â morning Â at Â 9:28 Â a.m., Â Senior Â Trooper Â Andy Â Leise Â re-Â sponded Â to Â a Â two-Âvehicle Â crash Â on Â Monkton Â Road Â at Â Silver Â Street Â in Â Monkton. Â The Â trooper Â said Â Ryan Â T. Â Sartwell, Â 31, Â of Â Brattleboro Â lost Â control Â of Â the Â 2009 Â Chevy Â Silvera-Â do Â he Â was Â driving Â on Â Silver Â Street Â and Â the Â Chevy Â struck Â the Â driverâ€™s Â side Â of Â a Â 2012 Â Silverado Â driven Â by Â 69-Âyear-Âold Â Allan Â Charles Â Willey Â of Â Bristol. Â Neither Â driver Â was Â hurt, Â but Â both Â pickups Â sustained Â moder-Â ate Â damage. Â The Â trooper Â said Â snow Â
and Â ice Â on Â the Â road Â contributed Â to Â the Â crash, Â and Â he Â also Â gave Â Sartwell Â a Â written Â warning Â for Â speeding. Then Â at Â 10:43 Â a.m., Â Leise Â was Â called Â to Â Starksboro Â where Â he Â re-Â ported Â that Â a Â 2007 Â International Â 4300 Â truck Â was Â attempting Â to Â turn Â left Â off Â Route Â 116 Â onto Â Stateâ€™s Â Prison Â Hollow Â Road Â when Â a Â 2013 Â Subaru Â Impreza Â driven Â by Â Nakeeya Â A.R. Â Deas Â of Â South Â Burlington Â ran Â into Â the Â rear Â bumper Â of Â the Â truck. Â No Â one Â was Â injured Â and, Â again, Â snow Â and Â ice Â were Â called Â contrib-Â uting Â factors Â in Â the Â crash. Â Leise Â issued Â Deas Â a Â written Â warning Â for Â following Â too Â closely. Â Troopers Â then Â went Â to Â a Â crash Â involving Â three Â vehicles Â on Â Route Â 17 Â in Â New Â Haven Â at Â 11:51 Â a.m. Â They Â report Â that Â a Â Ford Â van Â was Â stuck Â in Â the Â westbound Â lane Â after Â it Â slid Â partially Â off Â Route Â 17. Â A Â 2003 Â Chevy Â S-Â10 Â driven Â by Â Bruce Â V. Â Zeman, Â 44, Â of Â New Â Haven Â was Â westbound Â and Â attempted Â to Â pull Â out Â and Â go Â around Â the Â van Â and Â its Â driver, Â who Â was Â reportedly Â stand-Â ing Â in Â the Â road. Â Police Â report Â that Â the Â Chevy Â S-Â10 Â collided Â head Â on Â in Â the Â eastbound Â lane Â with Â a Â 2011 Â Honda Â CR-ÂV Â driven Â eastbound Â by Â Patricia Â J. Â Bryant, Â 60, Â of Â Lincoln. Â No Â one Â was Â injured, Â but Â the Â Chevy Â and Â the Â Honda Â both Â sus-Â tained Â moderate Â damage. Â While Â citing Â snow Â and Â ice Â as Â contribut-Â ing Â factors Â in Â the Â crash, Â police Â also Â warned Â Zeman Â to Â keep Â his Â speed Â down. State Â police Â were Â assisted Â at Â the Â scene Â by Â the Â Addison Â County Â Sheriffâ€™s Â Department, Â New Â Haven Â Fire Â Department Â and Â the Â Vergennes Â Area Â Rescue Â Squad. Even Â after Â the Â snow Â had Â stopped Â falling, Â the Â cars Â kept Â sliding Â on Â snow-Âand-Âice Â covered Â roads. Â On Â Friday, Â March Â 14, Â at Â 5:20 Â a.m. Â troopers Â went Â to Â Route Â 17 Â in Â Addison Â in Â the Â area Â of Â Jersey Â Street Â where Â Peggy Â McCurdy-ÂQuain, Â 53, Â of Â Mineville, Â N.Y., Â told Â police Â that Â she Â lost Â control Â of Â the Â 2007 Â Toyota Â Tundra Â she Â was Â driving Â on Â the Â slip-Â pery Â road, Â causing Â her Â to Â travel Â off Â the Â road. Â The Â vehicle Â sustained Â
minor Â body Â damage Â and Â the Â side Â airbag Â activated. Â The Â driver Â was Â transported Â to Â Porter Â Medical Â Cen-Â ter Â for Â evaluation Â of Â neck Â pain. On Â Sunday, Â March Â 16, Â at Â 12:42 Â a.m., Â troopers Â were Â dispatched Â to Â a Â one-Âcar Â crash Â on Â Fern Â Lake Â Road Â in Â Leicester. Â The Â vehicle, Â a Â 2006 Â Ford Â Fusion, Â had Â spun Â out Â of Â control Â on Â the Â snow-Âcovered Â road Â and Â hit Â a Â XWLOLW\ SROH 7KH GULYHU LGHQWLÂżHG as Â 56-Âyear-Âold Â Doreen Â Raymond Â of Â Forest Â Dale, Â suffered Â a Â possible Â fracture Â to Â her Â right Â leg.

Â But Â he Â ultimately Â decided Â to Â with Â the Â sellerâ€™s Â real Â estate Â agent, Â covered Â with Â the Â same Â $4.5 Â million Â Brush Â said. Brush Â had Â not Â expected Â to Â unveil Â release Â his Â proposal Â in Â late Â February, Â Redstone. Â He Â estimated Â it Â would Â cost Â the Â college Â has Â pledged Â to Â the Â project Â $525,000 Â to Â build Â a Â 3,500-Âsquare-Âfoot Â that Â was Â OKâ€™d Â by Â voters Â on Â March Â 4, Â his Â proposal Â until Â after Â Town Â Meet-Â after Â he Â had Â seen Â the Â townâ€™s Â infor-Â PDWLRQDO Ă€LHU DERXW WKH PLOOLRQ project. Â He Â made Â 700 Â copies Â of Â his Â proposal, Â passing Â out Â 670 Â of Â them Â by Â March Â 4. â€œIt Â was Â last-Âminute, Â and Â I Â apologize Â for Â that,â€? Â he Â said. â€œI Â thought Â (the Â $6.5 Â million Â project) Â would Â fail,â€? Â he Â said. HURDLES Â TO Â PLAN Brush Â reported Â receiving Â positive Â feedback Â as Â he Â presented Â his Â plan Â door Â to Â door. Â He Â acknowledged, Â how-Â ever, Â that Â the Â proposal Â faces Â at Â least Â two Â major Â hurdles Â right Â out Â of Â the Â chute. First, Â locating Â the Â municipal Â build-Â ing Â at Â 105 Â Court Â St. Â would Â run Â coun-Â ter Â to Â language Â in Â Middleburyâ€™s Â town Â plan Â stipulating Â that Â the Â municipal Â building Â and Â gym Â remain Â at Â their Â current Â downtown Â location. Â The Â ap-Â proved Â project Â has Â already Â drawn Â some Â criticism Â on Â that Â score Â because Â LW GRHV QRW FDOO IRU WKH WRZQ RIÂżFHV and Â gym Â to Â be Â renovated Â or Â rebuilt Â at Â 94 Â Main Â St. But Â Brush Â believes Â the Â center Â of Â the Â downtown Â has Â â€œshiftedâ€? Â closer Â to Â Court Â Street. Â And Â he Â does Â not Â be-Â lieve Â in Â some Â residentsâ€™ Â contention Â that Â keeping Â the Â municipal Â building Â GRZQWRZQZLOOEHQHÂżWORFDOVWRUHV â€œThat Â building Â is Â a Â destination Â and Â not Â an Â attraction Â to Â draw Â people Â to Â the Â downtown,â€? Â said Â Brush, Â a Â member Â of Â the Â Middlebury Â Development Â Review Â Board. Â He Â believes Â the Â 105 Â Court Â St. Â spot Â would Â be Â more Â convenient Â for Â East Â Middlebury Â residents. Along Â with Â the Â downtown Â issue, Â the Â Brush Â proposal Â does Â not Â stand Â to Â EHQHÂżWIURPFROOHJHIXQGLQJ â€œAt Â this Â point, Â the Â college Â is Â com-Â mitted Â to Â the Â proposal Â that Â the Â se-Â lectboard Â has Â brought Â to Â us, Â and Â that Â is Â the Â only Â thing Â I Â received Â board Â (of Â trustees) Â approval Â for Â and Â is Â the Â only Â thing Â we Â are Â offering Â at Â this Â point,â€? Â Liebowitz Â said Â during Â a Â telephone Â interview Â this Â week. Â â€œThere Â should Â EHQRÂżQDQFLDOH[SHFWDWLRQVIURPWKH college Â on Â any Â different Â plan.â€? Brush, Â former Â (retired) Â director Â of Â purchasing Â for Â Middlebury Â College, Â said Â he Â has Â spoken Â with Â Liebowitz Â about Â his Â proposal. Â He Â holds Â on Â to Â hope Â that Â the Â college Â might Â recon-Â sider. â€œMy Â belief Â is Â that Â at Â some Â point, Â that Â college Â money Â will Â be Â there Â for Â a Â different Â plan,â€? Â Brush Â said. Â â€œThatâ€™s Â based Â on Â my Â belief Â that Â the Â college Â wants Â that Â (94 Â Main Â St.) Â property.â€? Middlebury Â selectboard Â Chairman Â Dean Â George Â was Â disappointed Â to Â hear Â of Â Brushâ€™s Â petition. Â Brush Â has Â until Â April Â 3 Â to Â collect Â at Â least Â 250 Â signatures Â to Â force Â a Â special Â vote Â on Â reconsideration. Â That Â vote Â would Â only Â involve Â reconsideration Â of Â the Â previ-Â ously Â approved Â $6.5 Â million Â plan, Â and Â would Â not Â be Â a Â referendum Â on Â Brushâ€™s Â proposal. Âł7KHLGHDRIGHYHORSLQJWRZQRIÂżF-Â es Â outside Â of Â the Â downtown Â is Â some-Â thing Â thatâ€™s Â not Â supported Â by Â most Â people,â€? Â George Â said.

Â I Â donâ€™t Â know Â where Â the Â money, Â or Â the Â support, Â is Â going Â to Â come Â from Â to Â do Â this.â€?

Leahy Â (Continued Â from Â Page Â 1A) who Â packed Â the Â conference Â room Â at Â the Â Howe Â Center Â Monday Â afternoon Â for Â the Â hearing. Â The Â issue Â has Â been Â front Â and Â center Â not Â only Â in Â Vermont Â but Â nationwide Â since Â January Â after Â Gov. Â Peter Â Shumlin Â devoted Â his Â entire Â State Â of Â the Â State Â speech Â to Â Vermontâ€™s Â ever-Âdeepening Â heroin Â and Â opiate Â abuse Â crisis. Â The Â media Â attention Â was Â punctuated Â by Â a Â front-Âpage Â story Â in Â The Â New Â York Â Times Â last Â week Â on Â drug Â problems Â in Â Bennington Â and Â in Â Rutland. Â Some Â ORFDO RIÂżFLDOV KDYH WDNHQ LVVXH ZLWK the Â Times Â coverage, Â which Â they Â say Â painted Â Bennington Â as Â a Â town Â ruined Â by Â drugs Â and Â did Â not Â emphasis Â enough Â the Â unique Â and Â positive Â steps Â being Â taken Â in Â Rutland Â to Â combat Â the Â prob-Â lem. Mondayâ€™s Â hearing Â was Â an Â effort Â by Â Leahy, Â D-ÂVt., Â to Â take Â testimony Â about Â WKH SUREOHP IURP RIÂżFLDOV ZKR DUH working Â with Â kids, Â offenders Â and Â ad-Â dicts, Â and Â to Â get Â their Â view Â on Â whatâ€™s Â working, Â and Â whatâ€™s Â not. Opinions Â aside, Â the Â numbers Â donâ€™t Â lie. Â Opiate Â addiction Â in Â the Â Green Â Mountain Â State Â has Â risen Â an Â astound-Â ing Â 770 Â percent Â since Â 2001, Â a Â statistic Â WKDWÂżJXUHGSURPLQHQWO\LQ6KXPOLQÂśV State Â of Â the Â State Â address. Leahy, Â who Â will Â be Â 73 Â on Â March Â 31 Â and Â chairs Â the Â Judiciary Â Committee, Â is Â Washingtonâ€™s Â most Â senior Â senator. Â His Â powerful Â position Â on Â Capitol Â Hill Â could Â help Â funnel Â much-Âneeded Â fund-Â ing Â to Â Vermont Â to Â help Â turn Â the Â opiate Â crisis Â around. â€œWe Â want Â to Â talk Â about Â how Â com-Â munities Â like Â Rutland Â can Â come Â to-Â gether Â to Â solve Â this Â complex Â problem,â€? Â Leahy Â said Â in Â his Â opening Â remarks. Â â€œIt Â goes Â into Â neighborhoods Â and Â com-Â munities Â of Â all Â sizes, Â and Â in Â rural Â ar-Â eas Â alike, Â not Â just Â here Â in Â Vermont Â but Â around Â the Â country.â€? Leahy Â was Â joined Â by Â fellow Â Ver-Â mont Â Democrat Â Rep. Â Peter Â Welch Â to Â hear Â testimony Â at Â the Â hearing. Leahy Â said Â that Â while Â the Â statistics Â are Â staggering, Â itâ€™s Â the Â people Â affected Â by Â the Â scourge Â of Â heroin Â that Â matter Â most. â€œYou Â can Â go Â with Â the Â numbers,â€? Â Leahy Â said. Â â€œBut Â when Â you Â look Â at Â the Â people Â whose Â lives Â have Â been Â ruined Â or Â ended Â by Â this, Â itâ€™s Â got Â to Â stop.â€? Leahy Â also Â noted Â that Â law Â en-Â forcement Â alone Â has Â not Â solved Â the Â problem, Â and Â highlighted Â Rutlandâ€™s Â multi-Âfaceted Â approach Â of Â prevention, Â
education Â and Â treatment Â coupled Â with Â an Â alternative Â sentencing Â structure Â to Â help Â non-Âviolent Â addicts Â get Â their Â lives Â back. Â The Â Rapid Â Intervention Â program Â uses Â treatment Â options Â in Â exchange Â for Â a Â clean Â record. Â It Â also Â zeroes Â in Â on Â trou-Â bled Â homes Â in Â neighborhoods Â where Â heroin Â is Â known Â to Â be Â used, Â and Â works Â with Â city Â building Â codes Â enforcement, Â health Â inspectors Â and Â other Â city Â of-Â ÂżFLDOVWRVKXWGRZQWKRVHKRXVHVDQG improve Â neighborhoods.

Â She Â said Â she Â and Â her Â staff Â sounded Â the Â alarm Â that Â something Â had Â changed Â in Â Burling-Â tonâ€™s Â drug Â landscape Â about Â three Â years Â ago. Â The Â most Â disconcerting Â informa-Â tion Â came Â from Â children. â€œKids Â were Â afraid Â to Â walk Â home Â at Â night,â€? Â she Â said. Â â€œKids Â were Â afraid Â to Â walk Â across Â the Â park, Â afraid Â to Â walk Â down Â North Â Street Â to Â their Â apartments. Â They Â told Â us Â of Â being Â harassed Â and Â as-Â VDXOWHGE\WKRVHXQGHUWKHLQĂ€XHQFHRI drugs.â€?

who Â sold Â drugs. â€œWe Â were Â making Â more Â and Â more Â reports Â to Â (the Â state Â Department Â of Â Children Â and Â Families) Â about Â children Â who Â were Â being Â severely Â neglected Â be-Â cause Â there Â was Â no Â food Â in Â the Â home Â because Â there Â was Â no Â money Â left Â for Â food Â to Â feed Â these Â children,â€?

Â McK-Â enzie Â said. Â â€œEspecially Â those Â who Â need Â us Â most Â to Â realize Â their Â full Â potential Â as Â productive, Â healthy, Â caring Â and Â respon-Â sible Â citizens.â€? McKenzie Â said Â she Â and Â her Â fellow Â Boys Â & Â Girls Â Club Â directors Â around Â Vermont Â have Â come Â to Â a Â heartfelt Â con-Â clusion Â about Â that Â mission. â€œWe Â have Â concluded Â that Â because Â of Â what Â we Â are Â witnessing Â in Â our Â commu-Â nities Â around Â addiction, Â that Â we Â cannot Â not Â engage,â€? Â McKenzie Â said. Â â€œBe-Â cause Â if Â we Â donâ€™t Â engage Â on Â pushing Â back Â on Â the Â trends Â that Â we Â see, Â we Â will Â violate Â our Â reason Â for Â being.â€?

Trail Around Middlebury â€“ our â€˜Emerald Necklaceâ€™ Facil Â Stoeicdtion: Â Wright Â Park
When I became the second Executive Director of the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT) in the mid-1990s, I saw a real opportunity in the en Â ld Tra s e Trail Around Middlebury (TAM). I believed the TAM to be a wonderle B r Â Â m Â o xt. : Â 2.8 Distance s: Â Seymour Â St. Â E ful resource for the community that was much more visible and tand k Â gible than the concept of land conservation, which was the primary e Trail Â Hea re C r Â e tt . focus of the board at the time. I lobbied hard to place more focus on Falls Â Rd Stretches Â along Â O ng Â cliffs Â and Â lo : Â development of the TAM and fortunately was able to garner the supFeatures elden Â Falls Â and Â a port of the board to put more resources into the Trail. Â River Â to Â B ds. n tio o Â this Â sec e r lo p deep Â wo x One key piece of land in this phase of development of the TAM Â e y Â Hike Â to day, Â March Â 22 it n u came to be known as Wright Park. In the late 1980â€™s, local resim r Com Â on Â Satu M A dent Will Jackson had generously donated the land to the town Â T e of Â th of Middlebury. (Will gave it the name in honor of his dear friend Chuck Wright, who had been paralyzed in a plane crash.) What many people donâ€™t know is that despite Willâ€™s wonderful offer, the town might not have accepted the gift unless MALT Board Member Peg Martin became a strong advocate and convinced the town select board to take it. So, we have both Will and Peg to thank for the wonderful resource we all now enjoy as an integral part of the TAM. Once the town became the owner of this land, local resident (and reliable volunteer) Al Stiles played a huge role in laying out the first trails in the park. Over the ensuing years, Wright Park has become one of my favorite parts of the TAM, and you will often find me there in all seasons for hiking, cross-country skiing, and sometimes mountain biking. If you have yet to visit this amazing part of our town, you are in for an eye-opening experience in a striking area. Wright Park has a variety of well-marked hiking trails, several of which take you right past natural features that youâ€™d never expect to see in a place so close to downtown. One trail goes for quite some distance along the remote shore of Otter Creek, a stretch of the river that invokes a sense of being in a much larger wilderness area. Youâ€™ll see tons of evidence of beaver activity, and ospreys can often be sighted. Another trail follows along a series of rocky cliffs, several of which are 50-60 feet high; bird life and animal signs are abundant everywhere. Mountain bikers also have access to this territory â€” on trails specifically designed for bike use, making it a popular multi-use segment of the TAM.
This column is the second in a series dedicated to educating and engaging the community on the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM), its history and varied routes. It is also part of MALTâ€™s campaign to raise an endowment for the TAMâ€™s exciting future. We encourage you to walk any section of this remarkable, local jewel and to contribute to MALTâ€™s trail endowment campaign. See you on the TAM!

As I look back over my years as Executive Director of MALT, the things I remember most fondly are the teamwork and volunteerism that finally got the whole trail in place. No one would be able to enjoy the TAM as it is now without, for example, the efforts of John Derick, who continues today to be the driving force behind maintaining the TAMâ€™s system of trails and bridges. And the early involvement of Will Jackson, Peg Martin, Al Stiles, and many others was pivotal as well. So, if you see any of them on the street, extend your hand and thank them!
