On the grape trail
Vt. Winery Passport: More than wineries By Lou Varricchio email@example.com SHELBURNE „ Vermont agriculture is alive and well and moving in new, unexpected directions. Since the 1800s, the ag landscape of the Green Mountain State has changed from supporting sheep to cattle to organic vegetables. And while traditional dairy operations are clearly in decline here, there are surprising bright spots on the stateÍ s gentrifying agribusiness horizon; these bright spots point to a future with more sustainable uses of the land. One of the bright spots is the growing of a new breed of cold-hardy wine grape in Vermont. New, northern-born grape varieties„ CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

The life and death of Veronica Lake Movie star died in Vt. By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org BURLINGTON „ As a newborn baby, she was christened with a cumbersome name„ Constance Frances Marie Ockelman; that was in the maternity ward of Brooklyn Hospital in New York City on the blustery morning of Nov. 14, 1922. By the time Constance Frances Marie Ockelman achieved fame among HollywoodÍ s most desired women during the 1940s, she had gone through an amazing personal transformation. Troubled and schizophrenic, Constance Frances Marie morphed into the sexy, film noir actress Veronica Lake. Sometimes known as the ñ peek-a-boo girlî for a partially hidden eye eclipsed by her long, natural blonde hair, Veronica Lake never left the childhood problems of Constance Frances Marie too far behind. On board the submarine USS Corvina in Hawaii in October 1943, a Life magazine re-
porter jotted down the comments of a young sailor for a forthcoming story about the War in the Pacific; the sailor jabbed a thumb at a creased, movie-magazine pinup picture of Veronica taped to the bulkhead behind his bunk. He proudly told the reporter„ and in turns all the readers of Life magazine„ ñ Now thatÍ s why we fight!” While the actressÍ s submariner fan died a month later, with all hands, when the Corvina was torpedoed by a Japanese sub south of Truk Lagoon, Veronica Lake lived on a few more years. How Constance Frances Marie went from being a delicate newborn with a cumbersome name, to a silver-screen femme fatale and G.I. pinup queen, and then, at the very end of it all, to a corpse laid out in lavender in a Vermont funeral home„ dead from renal failure and an hepatitis infection at the age of 50„ is the crux of this story. VeronicaÍ s sulky personality, golden tresses and cherry lips were what lured moviegoers to view her 28 movies, spanning the years 1939 to 1970. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

GRAND PRIZE WINNERS — Meet the winners of the Vermont Eagle’s 2013 Grand Prize: Patty Murray and Melissa Sullivan. The team of $1,000 treasure hunters located the Grand Prize certificate in an orchard in Orwell (see the final clues explained in last week’s Eagle). The duo, who are Middlebury College employees, used computer technology to get a jump on their competitors. “We used our brains,” said Sullivan, “and didn’t get dirty until the end.” The women used Google Map to follow up on clues before heading out in the field. The women have been playing the game since the 1990s. Photo by Lou Varricchio

Bernie vs. the Gang of Eight
f U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) votes for the Gang of Eight immigration reform bill, S-744, it will because resistance to special interest forces proves to be futile. We already assume Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) will support the bill. Be that as it may, Sanders appears to have problems with the sweeping immigration reform bill which will create job loss for native-born Americans and cost far in excess of Obama Care, what a prominent Democrat legislator called a looming economic and health-care ñ train wreckî . So, letÍ s at least say thank you to Sen. Sanders for standing up for AmericaÍ s unemployed, in print, last week. Sen. Sanders told the Washington Post that he has problems with the bogus Gang of Eight bill. VermontÍ s independent senator described the Gang of Eight bill for what it really is, an attempt by big (and small) business„ from the agricultural sector to the hospitality sector„ to flood U.S. labor markets with cheap, exploitable labor. HereÍ s what Sen. Sanders told Washington Post reporter Dylan Matthews last week: ñ What I do not support is, under the guise of immigration reform, a process pushed by large corporations which results in more unemployment and lower wages for American workers. As you well know, we remain in the midst of a severe recession. Real unemployment, once you consider people who have given up looking for work, is close to 14 percent, and in some parts of the country is even higher. For minorities its very high, and weÍ ve got to address that. You have massively high unemployment for young people, yet weÍ re talking about expanding visas so that young people from abroad can serve as life guards, become ski instructors, become front-desk people, when young people in this country desperately need jobs to pay for a college education.î The latest national polls indicate that a majority of American citizens are against the Gang of Eight plan. “Americans clearly want enforcement first,” according to the Heritage Foundation. But letÍ s also be clear: Sen. Sanders, has not decided how he will vote on S-744. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) said that debate on the bill starts June 10 with a vote a few days later. Many special interest groups, including groups who continue to politically exploit and shelter illegal immigrants, are exerting pressure on Sanders to vote for S-744. Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democratic member of the Gang of Eight, was on the Spanish-speaking network Univision last week to say that the U.S. Senate does not have the votes for the bill to pass at this time. LetÍ s hope. Make your voice heard this week. DonÍ t let either of VermontÍ s senators vote for the immigration reform bill as it stands now. ThereÍ s anecdotal data which indicates that a lot of Vermont voters oppose S-744 which is on the fast track to becoming another giant, deficit-feeding welfare program. Let Sen. Sanders„ and Sen. Leahy„ hear from you if you oppose this bill. Your voice might have a profound impact on how Vermont votes. Lou Varricchio

The private schoolÍ s annual TAM cleanup is an important fundraiser and this yearÍ s event, held May 18, was a big success by all accounts. ñ Twenty-one students participated along with teachers, families, alumni and even one pet,î according to Amy Mason, a parent volunteer at the school. ñ Eleven students, ranging from second to sixth grade, walked the whole TAM, hiking over 16 miles. While walking, the school collected eight garbage bags of trash.î Mason said the students practiced their math, too, by helping to calculate just how much mileage was accrued during the May clean up„ 350 miles by foot. ñ This year, both participation and spirits were high,î Mason noted. ñ Trail and weather conditions were great and fundraising efforts went well. The students raised $1500 for the school through pledges and donations, much of it given by our Middlebury neighbors. ñ Money raised by the TAM event will helpfund field trips and financial aid in 2013. ñ Aurora School students would like to thank members of the Middlebury community for their generosity and support in this fundraiser,î Mason said.

Natural-fed meats offered in New Haven By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org NEW HAVEN „ Vermont consumers are becoming more concerned about the quality and location of their foods. In the past two years alone, a half dozen new, wholesome food providers have opened for business in the Addison-Rutland-Windsor region. Last week, members of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce were on hand to welcome their newest member Mark Smith and his Green Pasture Meats operation. Chamber members and vendors joined Smith to cut the ribbon of his full-service butcher and retail shop at a location along U.S. Route 7 in New Haven. Green Pasture Meats, owned by Smith, is starting off on a daunting, but admirable plan„ to develop a local and national brand of high-quality meats and other local products produced in Vermont. While most areas of VermontÍ s economy is shrinking, according to several business reports, specialty and artisan ag and food products, with the Vermont ñ brandî are expanding. So the future looks bright for Green Pasture. “We have identified wholesale and retail markets and defined initial sales targets via discussions with various distributors,î Smith said at the new businessÍ s open house last week. ñ We have also been in contact with many current and potential producers to assure that a reliable supply of product will match our sales
projections.î Green Pasture publicity describes the business as ñ a retail store with a full-service butcher shop marketî . According to Smith, high quality meats as and other Vermontmade products will be the focus in the retail outlet. On premises, Green Pasture will grow its meat processing services ñ by bringing slaughter to the producers initially via MSUs„ mobile slaughter units„ to a state-of- the-art centralized processing and distribution center.î According to the company, the facility will have storage and aging capacity so a ready supply of naturally fed meat will be on hand. ñ Green Pasture Meats will be of great value to my business and other producers of high-quality meats,î said Rep. Harvey Smith (R), owner of Smith Family Beef in New Haven. Rep. Smith, who is not related to Mark Smith, has been a lifelong farmer; he has also served the interest of Vermont farmers as a state legislator. ñ Locally grown meats are in high demand, but processing is a limiting factor in our ability to bring these meats to market. GPM brings the processing and marketing of this meat supply to the farmers. This much needed resource if finally here,” according to Rep. Smith. Check It Out: Green Pasture Meats is located at the corner of Campground Road and Route 7 in New Haven.

High-velocity Lathrop gun was handmade in Vermont By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com BRANDON „ One of VermontÍ s most unusual custom-made firearms is on display at Hawk Hill Guns and Tackle in Brandon. The shop is located at 590 Franklin St. (U.S. Route 7) next to the American Legion Post. The gun and tackle shop is owned by father and son team Roger and Dan Foley. The Foleys shop has the abandoned, 100-foot-deep waterfilled Hill Street Marble Quarry for a backyard. (Prior to the Foleys proprietorship, the little shop had previous incarnations as a fresh vegetable stand, Dave FishÍ s sporting goods operation, Dr. Sue HaydenÍ s veterinary center, and the office of Reynolds Insurance.) Built by the late Stewart Lathrop, a Brandonbased gunsmith and a veteran of the Vietnam War, the unusual Lathrop .22-250 rifle, with Mauser action, is probably the best high-velocity, center-fire varmint gun ever made in Vermont. According to Dan Foley, the rifle, which was constructed during the mid 1960s and last fired in 1969, is the shopÍ s center of attention„ a real conversation. Since Lathrop was a consummate craftsman, his work reflects the love and care an accomplished artist would lavish on his creation, according to the Foleys. In crafting the unique gun, Lathrop used the best materials of the era including an extra beefy native walnut stock which helps absorb the gunÍ s power. Also, the gun has a distinctive look which makes a Lathrop-designed weapon something to covet for a private gun collection. The Lathrop .22-250 rifle has a flat trajectory and is ideal for small game, including turkey, according to the Foleys. Being a very high-velocity weapon„ that is, with a thrust capacity of over 4,000 feet per second„ it has superb accuracy coupled with the long, telescope sighting. While Lathrop liked his gun for turkey hunting, it appears to be ideal for deer hunting, too. Being a large weapon, the Lathrop gun re-

quires a sandbag mount for steady firing. The Foleys arenÍ t just displaying the classic Lathrop gun, they are selling it for an anonymous friend who was close to the gunsmith. ñ If you like the gun, weÍ ll be happy to talk with you about price,î said Roger Foley.
Middlebury River study under way
MIDDLEBURY „ At a Middlebury Select Board meeting May 28, Roy Schiff, a water resource scientist and engineer, presented preliminary findings of the Middlebury River analysis which is in progress.

The final report will be presented to the River Task Force in mid June for its consideration in the development of a recommendation to the Select Board for action at its meeting at its last meeting in June, so that an application for 75 percent grant funding for the proposed project can be prepared in time for FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program application deadline on July 12. SchiffÍ s presentation is on the TownÍ s website.
Hawk Hill will celebrate its first anniversary this September. The shop has everything for Vermont sportsmen—from new and used firearms and accessories to fishing supplies and other goodies. The shop also sells online to a far-flung customer base.

he International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) urges Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin to continue his opposition to the sales taxes included in the budget proposals recently approved by both the Vermont Senate and House of Representatives. In particular, IBWA is opposed to the current provision in House Bill 528 that would eliminate the existing sales tax exemption for bottled water. Bottled water is a packaged food product, and as such is currently exempt from sales and use taxes in Vermont. Therefore, bottled water should be treated no differently than other food products. It is particularly troubling that as the legislature has been debating what products to tax in order to raise revenue, new or increased proposed taxes on candy, soft drinks, dietary supplements, cigarettes and meals have all been removed from the fi-
nal version of the SenateÍ s budget package. Of all the items that Vermont lawmakers could impose a tax upon, they have opted to EXUGHQ RQ O\ W KHKHDOW KLHVW ERW W OHG Z DW HU Such an approach to levying taxes ignores the benefits of bottled water and creates an incentive to purchase items often associated with an unhealthy lifestyle. A tax on bottled water and not on these other items sends a message to Vermonters that bottled water is a poor choice but candy, soft drinks, dietary supplements and cigarettes are acceptable to purchase and use on a regular basis. In addition, Vermont participates in the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA). If Vermont enacts a tax on bottled water, it will be the only state in the United States participating in SSUTA collecting a sales tax on bottled water but no other food products. Indeed, Vermont would have to adopt a confusing and convoluted SSUTA definition for bottled water in order to tax it without taxing other food products. In fact, beyond traditional bottled water, this tax, under the SSUTA bottled water definition, would appear to include all zero-calorie flavored water, sparkling water, seltzer water, fruit water, vitamin water, and perhaps even some zero-calorie ñ sodasî depending on how they are formulated. IBWA is concerned that legislators are not aware of the numerous water-based beverages
Vermont Eagle - 7 which would now be subject to the stateÍ s sales tax. A tax on bottled water would be extremely regressive and affect those who can least afford it, such as the elderly and others on fixed incomes. Taxing bottled water would also establish an unfair and inconsistent source of revenue for government funding. Once a tax is applied, sales of these products will diminish and revenue estimates based on prior sales rarely take that into account. A tax on bottled water would inevitably impact sales that would hurt retailers on the borders of Vermont and small businesses that would struggle to compete with larger establishments.

from page 1 crosses between rugged American (Vitis riparia) and tasty European (Vitis vinifera) grapes„ are transforming some former farmscapes into vineyards, with wineries springing up amid the vines. First emerging during the early 1990s, VermontÍ s grape industry has grown rapidly to a point where the business now has its own voice„ the Vermont Grape and Wine Council. Included in the Council are over a dozen, award-winning vineyards and wineries that are helping transform the state into a prime destination for culinary tourism. According to Gail Albert, who with her husband Ken Albert, own and operate Shelburne Vineyard on Shelburne Road (U.S. Route 7), wine lovers can enjoy taking a statewide winery tour with the aid of the Vermont Winery Passport. The Alberts are among the very small group of pioneers who started VermontÍ s grape growing and winemaking industry. ñ Each time you visit a winery this year, have your passport stamped with the official stamp of the Vermont Grape and Wine Council,î Albert said. ñ When you have collected stamps from at least ten individual wineries, you fill out contact information and mail it to the Council which is based in Brandon.î Albert said Vermont wine trail tourists who submit their passports are eligible for several prizes including a two-night getaway at the Shoreham Inn. Included in the colorful, pocket-size Vermont Winery Passport is a map showing all 21 participating vineyards and wineries. While the

majority of wineries are connected to grapes, several include other fruit wines, mead and ice ciders.
Starting with the Artesando Meadery in Groton and ending at Sugarbush Vineyard in Colchester, travelers along VermontÍ s wine and grape trail will tally over 200 miles when theyÍ ve visited all 21 participants. All of the Vermont Winery passport participants include tours and tastings„ some free, some for a small fee. Visitors can relax, sip their special nectar and enjoy the changing landscapes„ from the rolling, Finger Lakes-like Lake Champlain Valley district to the long and lazy Rhine-like Connecticut River Valley. With members such as the Alberts, the Vermont Grape and Wine Council is comprised of vineyards and wineries all dedicated to providing their customers with high quality Vermont wines. The CouncilÍ s mission is to educate people on the variety of grapes and wines Vermont has to offer„ from grape and fruit wines to mead and ice cider. To top off the summer of 2013Í s vineyard and winery touring, thereÍ s the Vermont Vineyard and Winery Open House Weekend. Aug. 17-18. According to the CouncilÍ s own publicity, ñ the Open House Weekend is a great way to taste wine made from grapes such as Marquette and La Crescent, delicious ice ciders, honey mead, and fruit wines, tour vineyards not usu-
ally open to the public, and learn about wine making in cold climates directly from the winemakers.î The AlbertsÍ Shelburne Vineyard will be a participant of the Open House Weekend and activities will vary at each vineyard or winery. In addition to monthly concerts in the vineyard, the Alberts are starting jazz concerts at the new Shelburne winery earlier this summer. Wine and jazz go together like wine and cheese, according to Albert. In addition to wine tastings and tours, the Open House Weekend will include live music, picnics, cheese and seafood, gourmet winetasting, flatbread pizzas, author readings, educational tours, all kinds of wine- and adult beverage-related demos, homemade ice cream, and craft brews. And kids (and adults) can have fun picking fruit at some of the Open House participants, too. Who knew that Vermont was fast becoming New EnglandÍ s Sonoma Valley? WeÍ re sure Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of the grape harvest, is smiling on distant Olympus.

Veronica Lake from page 1
How the 1940s actress ended up at deathÍ s door in BurlingtonÍ s then Fanny Allen Hospital on July 7, 1973, is a sad story. Within a year of her fatherÍ s death, VeronicaÍ s life changed. Her mother Constance met and married New York Herald newspaper illustrator Anthony H. Keane. Little Connie„ Veronica„ had a stepfather and a new surname. In 1934, KeaneÍ s persistent lung ailment proved to be an early stage of tuberculosis. On his Manhattan doctorÍ s recommendation, Anthony moved his bride and Veronica to Saranac Lake, N.Y. There, Anthony entered the Trudeau Sanitarium under a new doctorÍ s care. Constance and Veronica were situated in a small house a few blocks away from the facility. Unable to improve his condition any further, AnthonyÍ s doctor in Saranac Lake recommended that the sunshine and sea air of coastal Florida might act as natural forces to improve his delicate condition. So, the Keane family moved, once again, this time south to Miami, in order to follow the sun. According to a statement made by her mother during the familyÍ s stay in Miami, Veronica was diagnosed as a schizophrenic. In her case, Veronica had all the classic symptoms of the mental disorder: quirky speech patterns, muddled thinking, auditory hallucinations, paranoid tendencies, and a dysfunctional social life. Bennett, who researched much of the story behind Veronica’s final year in New York in Vermont for the Find-A-Grave website, says her move from Florida to California made her an overnight star. With the familyÍ s stay in Florida lasting less than a year, it didnÍ t take much to lure the Keanes to the glamour of Los Angeles. As soon as she stepped out of the family sedan in Tinsel Town, the newly branded Veronica Lake was on the fairy tale ride of her life. ñ Her parents packed up their Chrysler Airflow and headed for Hollywood,” Bennett writes. ñ And in the next four years she became
Life magazine’s ‘Top Female Box Office AttractionÍ . And she was hailed as a gifted new comedienne in the 1942 film, “Sullivan’s Travels”. For Veronica, Hollywood was an intoxicating place. Meanwhile, she was wrestling more and more with her schizophrenia, being in-and-out of a doctorÍ s care. Following a string of popular movies, the offers began to dry up for Veronica. By the 1950s, VeronicaÍ s career hit rock bottom. She had been married three times since arriving in Los Angeles. By the 1960s, Veronica decided to abandon California. She moved back to New York, perhaps in the hopes of recapturing her lost childhood. Living in New York City, Veronica was seen working as a boozy barmaid at the Blarney Stone, the former watering hole located at 433 Park Ave. By the late 1960s, Veronica lived up to her nomadic lifestyle; she moved again, this time, back to Florida. She shut herself away from friends in an apartment where she penned her 1970 autobiography. During her time in Hollywood, Fla., VeronicaÍ s mental illness plunged her into bouts of severe depression and paranoia. When asked about being an American sex symbol, Veronica was introspective. She often hinted at a sad, unfulfilled life in Hollywood. ñ I wasnÍ t a sex symbol,î she once said. ñ I was a sex zombie.î Disillusioned by a brief marriage to an English man, Veronica decided to settle in her favorite place„ the New YorkÍ s Saranac Lake. Saranac Lake, Bennett believes, represented the only place where Veronica Lake experienced true happiness during her troubled life. ñ According to doctors who treated her, she was Í pretty far alongÍ with an acute case of hepatitis when she got to the U.S.,î Bennett notes. ñ Anyway, she was not long in Saranac Lake when she was admitted to Will Rogers Memorial Hospital in Essex County.î Bennett is convinced that what brought the actress to Vermont was her illness. She would have preferred to remain in the Adirondacks.
