John Clagett remembered MIDDLEBURY Ñ Vermont author John Clagett died last week. He was a highly decorated U.S. Navy veteran. During World War II, Clagett commanded a P.T. boat at the Battle of Guadalcanal and was severely injured in the sinking of P.T. 111 on Feb. 1, 1943. His many accomplishments included graduating from the Naval Academy, receiving a Ph.D. from Yale University, spending three years in Norway with the diplomatic corps, and being professor emeritus of English at Middlebury College. He was a devout member of St. StephenÕ s Church in Middlebury. Among ClagettÕ s notable novels is a science-fiction work about a nuclear power plant accident, titled Ò The Orange RÓ ; it was set in the fictional town of Waybury, Vt.

Two killed in Route 7 crash


By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY Ñ A head-on collision along U.S. Route 7 south of downtown Brandon claimed the lives of two people. Vermont State Police did not release the names of the victims at press time pending contact with next of kin. The accident, which occurred at 4:15 p.m. Nov. 15, was located approximately one-quarter mile south of Otter Valley Union High School. Most students and faculty had already left the high school for the weekend break. Police closed the highway for nearly five hours during the investigation and cleanup, which included some spilled fuel. The pressure vessel of the gas tanker was not breached as far as was known. The collision involved a station wagon and a Proctor Gas tanker truck, according to Brandon Police Chief Chris Brickell. No details about the cause of the accident were available. Vehicles on Route 7 were rerouted to Florence north and south of the accident scene.

Anne Cady’s art is visual poetry By Lou Varricchio NEW HAVEN Ñ New Haven artist Anne Cady is getting a lot of attention these days. Last week, the Vermont Historical Society chose CadyÕ s painting, titled Ò Thanks for HelpingÓ , as the signature artwork for the upcoming Vermont History Expo 2014. According to Julie Nelson of the society, Ò Using Anne CadyÕ s art to represent Vermont History Expo is especially fitting this year, given that the Expo theme is Ô Artists and Artisans: VermontÕ s Creative Heritage.Õ Ó CadyÕ s oil paintings are Anne Cady inspired by the Vermont countryside just outside the door of her New Haven horse farm. Ò Through my paintings,Ó Cady remarked, Ò I am able to journey back to that slower country rhythm of the past, away from this hurry-up world and into those open spaces that are so quickly disappearing. While on this ride I can be playful with the harmonious patterns of fields, forests and mountains that repeat themselves again and again within the landscape. With my imagination as my guide, I take what I see in this place and make it my own. I am not ruled by what is real. It is the bold and vibrant colors, packed with their emotionally charged energy, that lift me and move me in the direction that I need to go. I respond

to them as they do to each other and together we head off.Ó Why the Vermont Historical Society picked a Cady landscape to adorn itÕ s annual, popular all-things-history expo isnÕ t too difficult to understand. Ò Although Vermont landscapes are typically traditional with fairly monochromatic palettes using iconic barn reds and clapboard whites, AnneÕ s Vermont has vibrant color and her hills are wavelike and unending, yet still recognizable as our state,Ó Nelson said. According to the artistÕ s own account, her paintings are on view in galleries-and museumsÑ in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Europe. A 1970s Middlebury College alumna, CadyÕ s delicious art is a big part of her day-to-day life. SheÕ s a wife, a mother of four, and a grandmother of five. Her self-described small horse farm in New Haven is a bucolic place where both inspiration and renewal are always possible. According to Cady, Ò As a painter I make this journey alone but some days my brush is in anotherÕ s hand. Those are the good days where everything flows. At times the road can get rough and there are struggles, but this is my place here. Vermont keeps me painting.Ó Writer Elizabeth Duvivier, director of Squam Art Workshops, sees Cady as a visual poet: Ò If Anne werenÕ t an oil painter, she could surely be a poet. The titles of her work reflect thought and grace, and are often as intriguing as the painting itself.Ó The Vermont History ExpoÑ graced by CadyÕ s Ò Thanks for HelpingÓ Ñ will take place next year at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds, June 21-22. The event will feature over 150 local historical societies, museums, and heritage organizations, as well as musicians, authors, genealogists, crafters and other talented professionals. “The History Expo weekend is filled with parades, presentations, heritage animals, reenactments, performances, demonstrations, andÑ this yearÑ the art of Anne Cady,Ó Nelson noted. You can see more of CadyÕ s work at the Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury.

Local doctors to discuss Bali adventures

BRISTOL Ñ The Indonesian island of Bali will be featured at this monthÕ s program of the One World Library Project. Bali: Consciousness, Culture and Community will be presented by Drs. Carla and David Osgood on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol. The Osgoods, who are practicing clinical psychologists and teachers, will discuss their 20 years of traveling and teaching in Bali where they introduce students to Balinese culture and help them develop sensitive intercultural communication skills. The Osgoods and their students live with Balinese families, travel to sacred sights, meet traditional healers and participate in the ceremonies of healing and spiritual celebration that are a daily occurrence on the island. Their work in bridging consciousness, culture and community has been described as profoundly healing and transformative by the individuals and groups they lead. During the Nov. 21 program, the Osgoods will compare western education and thinking, which tends to be rational, analytical and categorizing, with the Balinese tradition, which emphasizes feeling, intuition, relationship, complexity, and balance. According to the Osgoods, this has Ò profound implications for the maintenance of individual and collection well-being.Ó The Osgoods have found that this contrasting perspective is more than just an interesting cultural backdrop, but also serves as a profound difference through which they can probe deeper dimensions of well being and interbeing.

Drs. Carla and David Osgood with Balinese psychiatrist and healer Dr. Leu Ketut Suryani. The couple’s Bali adventures will be be featured at Bristol’s One World Library Project.

Residents address Select Board conflict of interest vote MIDDLEBURY Ñ At the Nov. 5 meeting of the Middlebury Select Board, resident Louise Vojtisek spoke in support of Board members Victor Nuovo and Susan Shashok regarding the Selectboard’s Oct. 22 conflict of interest vote on the town offices and recreation facilities project term sheet. Shashok said that she believed both board members to be solid citizens with good intentions. She also noted that she had observed that the town offices project is about buildings, not about

people, and encouraged the Select Board to continue to focus on clearly defining what the issues are relative to construction and responding to the publicÕ s concerns. Resident Ron Kohn spoke in support of rehabilitating the current municipal building and gymnasium at their existing location citing, in part, the findings from a mechanical and electrical systems study conducted by Engineering Services of Vermont that was completed earlier in 2013.

Board member Dean George announced that fellow member Gary Baker will chair a new subcommittee charged with reviewing and drafting revisions to the Select Board Conflict of Interest Policy. The other members of the subcommittee will be Planning Commission member Steve Terry and Development Review Board member Ted Davis.

Ò Whether the glass is half full or half empty isnÕ t important. ItÕ s who owns the glass.Ó (Roger Simmermaker) uite a few Vermonters have Ò Buy LocalÓ stickers plastered on the rear bumpers of their mostly foreign automobiles. This visual oxymoron always makes me chuckle. Why? Well, at least through my jaded eyes, while your foreign car might have been purchased at a Ò localÓ dealership, IÕ d hardly consider it practicing what you preachÑ meaning, when it comes to the true spirit behind the meaning of Ò Buy LocalÓ you really have to look at who owns the glass. In the case of cars and trucks, does Ò localÓ always mean the USA? I would think DetroitÑ not Yokohama, not Seoul, not HamburgÑ would apply here. So, what about a Toyota assembly plant in California? Where did the profits of your car purchase go? Detroit or a foreign city? But just because I choose to purchase an American car does it mean I am buying a 100 percent Made-in-America product? Maybe that Volvo ownerÕ s Ò Buy LocalÓ bumper sticker is meant to apply only to Vermont stuffÑ milk, syrup, eggs and cheese, all-natural soap, microbrews, soup crackers, etc.? So, maybe I should back this up and ask a more basic question: what exactly is an American car these days? According to syndicated consumer reporter Gregory Karp, there really isnÕ t much thatÕ s either 100-percent American or 100- percent Japanese, Korean, Chinese or German-made merchandise today. We live on a tiny planet and complex productsÑ like automobiles and computersÑ have many parts that are sourced from around the globe. Ò The notion of buying an American car is especially complicated because so many foreign automakers use American-made parts and have assembly plants in the U.S.Ñ while profits flow to the foreign company,” Karp writes. Ò Meanwhile, some U.S.-based automakers use some foreign parts and labor. So that becomes a judgement call based on your personal definition of Ô American car.Õ Ó Perhaps an even more fundamental question is what does Ò Made in the USAÓ really mean today? Here again, nuances of definitions matter. The Federal Trade Commission defined Made in the USA in 1997 by saying that Ò all or virtually allÓ of the components of the product must be made in the USA. But if, says, 1 percent of the product contains a foreign component, then how can you honestly say itÕ s Made in the USA? According to KarpÕ s interpretation of the 1997 FTC law, Ò the product should contain no or negligible foreign content. But there are no


hard-and-fast percentages.Ó Another thing to consider is the fact that many company products do not mentionÑ on the label or in documentationÑ where they are made? Legally, companies are not required to publish where their products are made. That fact, alone, disturbs me. Considering ChinaÕ s reputation for including toxins in their exports, is it any wonder more and more folks want to know what theyÕ re buying and where it comes from? Recently, I heard of someone who received terrible news that he has heavy metal poisoningÑ which includes mercury and uranium. The only link he can make is to the Japanese fish (including sushi) he loves to consume— and that can only mean Fukushima. So, where your cars, clothing, and food comes from really matters today. And how about those Mexican mangoes linked to salmonella? Ok, IÕ m as much a globalist as the next guy, but I still draw the line. I am an American first. I prefer to buy American-made products where the profits stay right here, on our sunny shoresÑ not in Asia or the E.U. I am doing best when I am fully committed to Ò Buy LocalÓ ; thatÕ s when I support my fellow American workersÑ be they union or non-union folks. In short, I follow the advice of bestselling author, union member, and consumer patriot Roger SimmermakerÑ he wrote the excellent book, Ò How Americans Can Buy American.Ó Simmermaker says donÕ t just buy Americanmade products, but buy the products of American companies whichÑ in the long runÑ pay more taxes than the foreign firms. That’s good for us. Thus, SimmermakerÕ s quoteÑ Ò Whether the glass is half full or half empty isnÕ t important. ItÕ s who owns the glass.Ó Ñ isnÕ t protectionism; it makes perfect sense to anyoneÑ any peopleÑ with a healthy sense of self interest. Today, even with the bailout, G.M. pays more U.S. taxes than its rival Toyota does (or ever did). ThatÕ s not fair. But even with Uncle Sam’s hobbling, G.M. is profitable today with 23,000 new U.S. jobs created since 2009. It is also steadily paying down its bailout bill and it will soon supercede Toyota as the no. 1 carseller, again. It may be challenging to follow SimmermakerÕ s Ò Buy AmericaÓ guidelines in todayÕ s global marketplace, but I’ll always buy American first. In the end, it helps America and Americans. LetÕ s not forget, America is where you and I eat, sleep, work and make loveÑ but not necessarily in that order. Lou Varricchio/The Vermont Eagle

A gift that keeps on giving To the editor: A blood donation can be life giving, having an impact far beyond the immediate benefit to the recipient. Fifteen years ago, I received several pints of blood after a drunk driver crashed into our car putting me in critical condition with multiple injuries. Hemorrhaging internally, I was close to Ò bleeding outÓ by the time I reached the Emergency Room. (I have been told that I am alive by the benefit of “20 minX W HV DQG RI DQ LQFKµ 7UDQVIX VLRQV W R UHSODFHW KHEORRG lost to torn joints, lacerated organs, and subsequent surgeries, was a significant element of my survival. When you donate blood, it is hard to imagine the impact that your gift will have on other people. In my case, the gifts I received, blood donations being one among the many kindnesses I accepted from strangers, motivated me to focus my energies on being a positive force in my community. It is my hope that some of the work I have been involved with in the years since the crash has benefited the lives of others in ways that mirror the impact that so many strangers had on mine. A pint of blood can make a world of difference on one life; and can have far reaching benefits to an entire community. Please think about the immense possibilities your gift can bring when you give blood at the upcoming Gift Of Life Marathon on December 17, 2013. ItÕ s not just about breaking the national record, although that is an admirable community goal. In my book, giving blood is about helping individuals in need, while potentially having a positive impact on everyone around you. Please call 800-RED-CROSS or visit www.redcrossblood. org to make your appointment today.

Sand Hill Bridge project out to bid MIDDLEBURY Ñ Middlebury Town Manager Kathleen Ramsay reported at the Nov. 5 Select Board meeting that her office received notification from the Vermont Agency of Transportation that the Sand Hill Bridge replacement project has been put out to bid on schedule and that construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2014.

MIDDLEBURY Ñ Right now, a proposed academic calendar that stirred controversy among family members will not be implemented for next school year; the issue will continue to be examined as more parents offer vocal feedback to local superintendents. There were five regional forums for the public to discuss the issue with superintendents from the Champlain Valley. For the most part, the heads of their respective school districts heard negative comments from parents as well as from residents who identify themselves as people who donÕ t currently have children enrolled in school. Criticism mainly centers around parents concerned about how breaks are structured in the calendar and its impact on family life. As unveiled to the public, Calendar 2.0 would maintain 175 student learning days in the regional calendar, but shorten summer and add more vacation time throughout the year. Superintendents call those breaksÑ intersessionsÑ noting they could be used for enrichment or remedial classes for students and professional development for teachers. Superintendents are legally authorized to set the regionÕ s school calendar each year, with that decision traditionally coming in January or February. Chittenden South Supervisory Union Superintendent Elaine Pickney, who was named VermontÕ s top schools chief earlier in the year, has discussed the proposal with her boards. The union school district is comprised of the southern Chittenden County towns of Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg, Williston and St. George. A group of residents from around the Champlain Valley formed a group, Vermont Save Our Summer Coalition-Opposing Calendar 2.0. This organization is aligned philosophically with other groups across the U.S., which have fought similar proposals elsewhere.

Lisa Zengioowski, school director at Renaissance School at Shelburne, said her institution is watching the Calendar 2.0 process, but will make any academic schedules based on their student and faculty needs. Ò WeÕ re not going to change our policy just because the public schools will,Ó she said. Catlin Waddick of Shelburne has three children enrolled at the Shelburne Community School. She attended a public forum in Burlington about the proposal, standing for the meetingÕ s 90 minutes, holding a sign criticizing Calendar 2.0,asking for more free play to be included in the school day and reminding those in there that Ò kids should be kids.Ó Waddick, who noted she was not speaking on behalf of the Coalition, but rather as a concerned parent, worries about the impact the proposal would have not only on students , but on educators, as well. She said the shortening of summer vacation and the addition of more breaks during cooler weather could lead to more children seeking entertainment from electronics or social media sites rather than participating in a camp or outdoor activity. Ò Vermont has some of the best camps internationally,Ó Waddick said. Ò If you have a break in February when itÕ s slushy, youÕ ll have kids sitting in front of the television.Ó Waddick added that young children go to school to see friends and play. SheÕ s worried that factors, such as poverty and family dynamics, often hamper older children from success in school. Waddick also wonders if Calendar 2.0 were enacted, would it help those struggling families?

He fought for this country.

He served on America’s frontlines, but now some in Washington are proposing a budget deal that will cut his benefits. It’s called Chained CPI—a change to the cost-of-living adjustment for Social Security and veterans’ benefits that will mean a combined $146 billion in cuts for America’s veterans and seniors who are already living on tight budgets. On behalf of more than 44 million veterans and the older Americans we represent, all of whom have earned their benefits, we urge Congress to reject this harmful cut.

On behalf of veterans who have sacrificed so much for this great country and seniors who have earned their benefits through a lifetime of hard work, we urge Congress to reject this harmful cut.

Vt. A.G. wants to ban menthol cigarettes

MONTPELIER Ñ Attorney General William H. Sorrell, in a bipartisan letter co-sponsored by Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and signed by a total of 27 Attorneys General, provided comments to the FDA in support of a menthol cigarette ban. Ò Menthol cigarettes are attractive to youth and have been marketed in ways that promote youth smoking. We hope the FDA will ban them completely,Ó said Attorney General Sorrell. Menthol cigarettes are the only flavored cigarettes currently legal for sale in the United States. The FDA is seeking public comment to inform its decisions about what action to take regarding menthol cigarettes.

This summer, the FDA issued a report that reached several key conclusions regarding the health impact of menthol cigarettes, finding that menthol cigarettes lead to increased smoking initiation among youth and young adults, greater addiction, and decreased success in quitting smoking. “These findings, combined with the evidence indicating that mentholÕ s cooling and anesthetic properties can reduce the harshness of cigarette smoke and the evidence indicating that menthol cigarettes are marketed as a smoother alternative to nonmenthol cigarettes, make it likely that menthol cigarettes pose a public health risk above that seen with nonmenthol ciga-

rettes,Ó the FDAÕ s report concluded. A copy of the FDAÕ s report can be found here. The AGs concur with the FDAÕ s conclusion that menthol cigarettes are likely associated with increased smoking initiation and dependence on smoking and with reduced cessation. The AGs letter sets forth several points in support of a ban of menthol flavored cigarettes, including marketing to youth, the attractiveness of flavored cigarette products to young smokers, and the disparate impact that menthol cigarettes currently have on certain segments of the population, such as young smokers, lower-income smokers, and female smokers.

United Church of Hinesburg welcomes new pastor By Lou Varricchio HINESBURG Ñ The United Church of Hinesburg installed the Rev. Jared Hamilton as its new pastor during a ceremony Nov. 17, at the church. The event was opened to the public as well as to church members to welcome the new pastor. The congregation voted unanimously in August to confirm Hamilton as its settled pastor, following a recommendation, also unanimous, from the U.C. Pastoral Search Committee. Hamilton holds a bachelorÕ s degree in Biblical studies from Cincinnati Christian University and a Master of Divinity Degree from Andover

Newton Theological School in Newton Center, Mass. He grew up on a dairy farm in Gambier, Ohio. He and his wife, Leah, have two children, Camille, 3, and Simon, 9 months. Ò Leah and I enthusiastically support the United Church of HinesburgÕ s focus on helping families locally and globally,Ó Hamilton said. Ò We believe strongly in social justice.Ó In Massachusetts, Hamilton established two not-for-profit grantwriting organizations, Child Aid International and Child Aid USA, which assist non-profits in obtaining funds through workplace giving campaigns. Child Aid International deals primarily with child traffick-

ing, childrenÕ s rights and childrenÕ s education overseas. Child Aid USA deals mostly with educational and health organizations that work with children with disabilities. He spent four years working for First Parish Church located in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass. The Massachusetts the church that sponsored his ordination process. He also did an internship as chaplain for the New England Baptist Hospital, Roxbury, Mass. He was approved for ordination in May by the Essex Association of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ. Pictured at right: Rev. Jared Hamilton Photo courtesy of United Chruch

LaFountain tops list of Devil’s Bowl Speedway Rookies By Justin St. Louis Special to the Eagle RUTLAND Ñ DevilÕ s Bowl Speedway will toast top local stock car drivers from the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at its annual Banquet of Champions in Rutland, Vt., Feb. 1. Among the competitors to be honored on stage are Rookie of the Year winners from each of the trackÕ s four weekly racing classes. The Banquet of Champions will be at the Holiday Inn Rutland/Killington in Rutland. Jamie LaFountain, 29, of Keeseville, N.Y., will collect Rookie of the Year honors for his efforts in the headline Bond Auto Parts Modified division. LaFountain built a consistent record in his first year of racing at Devil’s Bowl, finishing in the top 10 in nine of his 17 feature starts and taking twelfth in the overall championship standings. He outdistanced Bruce Schwab and Emily Quinn for the freshman crown. Bristol, Vt., driver Josh Masterson posted three Late Model victories on his way to the divisionÕ s Rookie of the Year crown. Feature winner Brandon Atkins finished a close second followed by Johnny Scarborough, Seth Bridge, Carol Parker, and Tommy Eriksen, Jr. Four first-year racers were bunched tightly

together in the intermediate Renegade class, with 20 year-old Brad Bushey of Fairfax, Vt., taking the Rookie of the Year title. Bushey won twice to beat teenagers Stephen Donahue, Ray Germain, Jr., and Richard Lowrey, III. Two-time winner Chuck Bradford of Addison, Vt., ran to the Rookie of the Year crown in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Mini Stock class. Lacey Hanson, Lance Masterson, Kyle Sorensen, Jason Sabourin, and Scott FitzGerald were next in line. Separately, Todd Stone of Middlebury , Vt., will be honored as the NASCAR Whelen AllAmerican Series National Rookie of the Year presented by Jostens at a ceremony in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 13. Though he was not eligible for the weekly DevilÕ s Bowl rookie program, Stone’s 10-win Modified championship season and his status as a first-year NASCAR license holder allowed him to claim the national honor, beating drivers from more than 50 sanctioned tracks. Tickets for the local banquet can be ordered by calling (802) 265-3112 or visiting the DevilÕ s Bowl Speedway office at 261 Randbury Road in Rutland. To reserve a room at the Holiday Inn in the DevilÕ s Bowl Speedway block, call 1-800462-4810 or 802-775-1911.

Foote wins Boston’s Gold Helmet From College News Reports MIDDLEBURY Ñ Middlebury College quarterback McCallum Foote (Newton, Mass.) has been awarded the Ò Gold HelmetÓ , given weekly to the top New England performer in Division II/III. The award is given by the New England Football WritersÕ Gridiron Club of Greater Boston. This marks the third time he has been honored, once in each of his three seasons at Middlebury. Foote had an outstanding day last Saturday, throwing more touchdown strikes than incomplete passes in a 40-13 win over Hamilton.

Dairy farms ordered to stop polluting rivers

Volunteer Spotlight from page 1

the meaning of giving second chances.Õ Thank you, Barbara.Ó Lynn Pope Hier, of Vergennes, is a regular volunteer at Hospice Volunteer Services, and jumped at the chance to help them out again during United WayÕ s Days of Caring. At the start of autumn, she spent a day working in the beautiful garden that Hospice Office Manager Shirley Ryan has lovingly created with the hope that it will bring joy to not just Hospice employees and clients, but to the community at large as well. Ò It was a gorgeous day and a great experience,Õ Hier said. Ò I never expected to have so much fun and laugh so hard while I was there! I was glad to be able to give back to an organization that does so much for our community.Ó The Eagle thanks Serena Eddy Guiles of the Addison County RSVP and the Volunteer Center/ Green Mountain Foster Grandparent Program for assistance with our salute to local volunteers. RSVP and the Volunteer Center is located at 48 Court St. in Middlebury.

MONTPELIER Ñ Two dairy farms owned by Nelson Farms, Inc. in Derby were ordered by the Orleans Superior Court, Civil Division, to stop discharging waste into the Clyde River and Crystal Brook. The Attorney General’s Office obtained a preliminary injunction on behalf of the Agency of Agriculture and the Agency of Natural Resources Department of Environmental Conservation. Ò Vermont farmers are stewards of the land and provide many environmental and economic benefits to our state. However, it is not acceptable for farmers to allow barnyard waste to pollute our waterways,Ó Attorney Gen. William Sorrell (D) said. Ò Although an acre of farm land produces less phosphorus than an acre of urbanized land, excess phosphorous in our waterways from any source deprives freshwater fish and plants of essential oxygen.Ó The Clyde River farm is home to approxi-

mately 450 dairy cows and 200 heifers. The Crystal Brook farm is home to approximately 575 dairy cows. The farms must now take immediate steps to stop agricultural waste in the barnyard areas of both farms from entering the Clyde River and Crystal Brook while the StateÕ s lawsuit for a permanent solution and civil penalties moves forward.

Ò The StateÕ s agricultural water quality laws and programs are designed to assist farmers to help keep our waterways clean,Ó said Sorrell. Ó When voluntary compliance efforts fail, however, the Agency of Agriculture, the Department of Environmental Conservation and my Office will work cooperatively to take enforcement action.Ó

Shelburne Police Department recognized for efforts By Gail Callahan SHELBURNE Ñ While the Shelburne Police Dept. is accustomed to receiving recognition from an international group, the reception of the accolade still brings smile to members of the squad. The department, which covers the southern Chittenden County town, placed second in its category, receiving the Vermont Law Enforcement Challenge from the International Chiefs of Police Association. The State of Vermont had three winners with the Dept. of Motor Vehicles placing first in its group, the Shelburne Police in second place ,and the Grand Isle SheriffÕ s Dept. coming in third. According to Shelburne Police Dept. Sgt. Al Fortin, ShelburneÕ s award falls under the category of departments with 11 to 25 officers. Ò I think itÕ s unbelievable that a small, little department in Shleburne, Vermont, is recognized by an international group for doing a good job,Ó said Fortin, a 25-year veteran of the force. He added the squad submitted work to the organization for the last 13 years, and in each of those times, received mention from the body.

Shelburne Police officer Josh Flore (right) with a friend at the 2013 Police Unity Tour. The small-town department won an award this year. In 2008, Shelburne Police won a national award from a similar governing body. Fortin noted the department was recognized for work in five categories, including training, public safety enforcement and public information. The announcement of the awards took place last month.
