MUHS Tigers win Div. II State Hockey Championship By Lou Varricchio Lou@ MIDDLEBuRY Ñ For a small town, there sure was a lot of celebrating in Middlebury during the evening hours of March 5. The festive atmosphere was the result of the townÕ s latest athletic victoryÑ a coveted state hockey championship. The Middlebury Tigers Girls Hockey Team won its first high school girls hockey Lake Division II Vermont State Championship March 5. The Tigers beat Burr and Burton Bulldogs, 2-1. The game was played at the university of VermontÕ s Gutterson Fieldhouse. The squad completed a dynamic 19-3-1 season. The Tigers last attended a state championship in 1997 but without a victory.

MuHS Coaches Tim Howlett, Matt Brush and Derek Bartlett appeared pleased with their players and acknowledged that hard work and dedication payed off big time. Ò We are very proud of the team,Ó said Karen White, mother of team player Allison White.

Ferrisburgh site gets court approval By Elicia Mailhiot

FERRISBURGH — After a five year effort, Champlain Oil Co. received approval to begin work on a project that includes a gasoline and diesel station, a convenience store, and a fast-food restaurant on a nearly 10-acre site in Ferrisburgh. The Vermont Supreme Court ruled in a Feb. 21 decision to uphold the Environmental Court ruling of an October hearing that approved the project back in 2012. Going forward, Champlain Oil Co. expects to have the land cleared by this summer and to have significant progress made in construction by the time the snow falls next winter. Champlain Oil Co. could not formally purchase the land, formerly the Road House Restaurant, until the court approved the project. The building is set to include a 4,800-square foot structure for the store and McDonaldÕ s Restaurant, canopy covered gas and diesel pumps, and parking for other vehicles. The project has faced its share of adversity, with the Ferrisburgh Friends for Responsible Growth opposing the project because of its size and location. Representatives for the organization said while they welcome new business in town, they hoped it to be on a smaller scale. The Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment set strict conditions when it approved the application for the project. Neither the residents nor Champlain Oil Co. were pleased with the outcome, so both sides appealed to the Environmental Division of Vermont Superior Court. In its October 2012 hearing, the Court struck down several requirements the Zoning Board had set upon its approval. The Court ruled that the business could be open from 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., rather than the 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. the board requested, as well as approving a drive-through component for the restaurant. The Court also permitted the installation of diesel pumps and allowing constant lighting for security reasons, all things the Board prohibited. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of all the conditions Feb. 21. At right: Shortly after it opened in 2007, the Ferrisburgh Roadhouse was destroyed by fire. A Champlain Oil service center and McDonald’s Restaurant will rise from the ashes on the prime Route 7 site. Eagle photo by J. Kirk Edwards

Go green: Chieftans coming to Rutland

RuTLAND Ñ The Paramount Theatre will set the stage for the six-time Grammy Award-winning Irish folk group the Chieftains, Monday, March 10, at 8 p.m. The Chieftains are recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the worldÕ s attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive. After all these years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The ChieftainsÕ music remains as fresh and relevant as when the group formed in 1962. In their 40 years together, The Chieftains have amassed countless recordings and awards. On top of their six Grammies, in their own country by being officially named Ireland’s Musical Ambassadors, performed during the PopeÕ s visit to Ireland in 1979 in front of a 135,000,000 strong audience, and were the subject of a tribute Late Late Show in 1987, their 25th anniversary. They have been involved in such historic events as a tour of China (the first Western group to perform on the Great Wall), Roger Waters’ “The Wall” performance in Berlin in 1990, became the first group to give a concert in the Capitol Building of Washington D.C., and more recently, Paddy performed a memorial service in October in New York for the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. They have also performed with many symphony and folk orchestras worldwide, and have broken many musical boundaries by collaborating and performing with some of the biggest names in rock, pop and traditional music in Ireland and around the world. The Chieftains consist of founding member Paddy Moloney (lead vocals, Uilleann pipes and tin whistle), Sean Keane (fiddle), Kevin Connett (vocals and bodhran) and Matt Malloy (flute). The Paramount Theatre is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 30 Center St. in downtown Rutland. Tickets ($49.7569.75) are available by calling the venue box office at 802- 7750903, or online at

The 35 towns of Town Meeting Day


uring Town Meeting 2014, voters in 35 towns across Vermont rejected their local school budgets. Included in the 35 Ò noÓ communities are not just little hamlets but some very large, influential municipalitiesÑ surprisingly, Burlington, Montpelier and Rutland were among them; places that used to rubber-stamp obese school budgets. While this fact may not phase you much where you live, itÕ s a clear sign that somethingÕ s shifting in VermontÕ s body politic. While your town may have enough highheeled income earners willing to ante up for another round of school and town budget increasesÑ even as school enrollments decline statewideÑ an increasing number of middleincome Vermonters (who themselves, as a group, are actually shrinking) are just saying Ò noÓ at the polling booth. These votersÑ VermontÕ s silent minority, if you willÑ are starting to awaken from decades-long slumber. They remind me of the fictional character Howard Beale, played by the late actor Peter Finch, in the 1976 movie Ò NetworkÓ : TheyÕ re mad as hell and theyÕ re not going to take it anymore. (Especially watch out for a minority when it pays most of the bills.) We saw this same group of voters rumble during MiddleburyÕ s town-hall ruckus; they were upset with the lack of transparency in their local government as well as its paternal, Ò we know bestÓ attitude. Even though they were rebuffed at the polls this time, theyÕ re clearly not going away. Despite the many 2014 school and town budgets approved, last weekÕ s surprising voting in the 35 Ò noÓ towns indicates an unsettling fact for those of us who still live and work here: Vermont isnÕ t growing. During the past decade or so, Vermont has lost 30,000 residents to other states. These men and women, mostly in the prime of their income-earning years (or fresh out of college with a degree in hand), have checked out of the state for good. Data about ex-Vermonters is impossible to come by, but I think itÕ s safe to presume that there are finely interwoven reasons which propelled them elsewhereÑ such as lack of good paying job opportunities and the ever rising cost of living here. So whatÕ s left behind after young people and middle-class income earners leave the state? WeÕ re all familiar with VermontÕ s trustfunders, fixed-income retirees, low-skilled/ low-income workers, part-time residents, agenda-driven utopian activists, and other

March 15, 2014

individuals which are supported by the remaining, taxpayer base. These demographic facts may indicate a key thing at the polls this year: Why vote down a bloated school or town budget when you personally don’t feel the financial pain? Why not say Ò noÓ to the gas pipeline (which will bring construction jobs and future economic opportunity to the region) when it means nothing to you. Nearly 67 percent of Vermont property owners are classified as “income sensitive”, a euphemism for low income or no income, and so they donÕ t pay the level of taxes the rest of us have to bear. Thus, the remaining percentage of property owners pay the difference to support the 67 percentÑ plus themselves—to finance education. For many voters in this category, there doesnÕ t seem much in the way of equality or even sustainability about this scenario. This increasingly shrinking pool of people earning a middle-class income in Vermont should trigger an alarm in Montpelier. Instead, itÕ s business as usual under the Midas Dome. The long-building economic crisis in Vermont can be blamed on multiple problemsÑ high taxes, severe demographic shifts, lack of opportunity, even unchecked one-party political rule. And instead of seriously tackling the problem of high property taxes, legislators would rather discuss motorcycle helmets, texting-while-driving or building new bicycle paths. Meanwhile, unfunded pensions, taxpayer-funded health care, the looming possibility of the burdens of mandatory sick-leave payments and the drumbeat for an increased minimum wage on small businesses only divert us from addressing the real economic issues weÕ d rather forget. Legislators in Montpelier are spending more than the taxpayers can affordÑ and increasing taxes doesnÕ t look like a sustainable fix. The problem isn’t collecting revenues; the problem is spending too much. But itÕ s always more important to get elected or reelected than Ò cutÓ the budgetÑ and so, we see the towns blame Montpelier and Montpelier blame the towns. ItÕ s clear we canÕ t continue on our current path in the way state and local governments operate. Something has to giveÑ which, until things change, means we shouldnÕ t be surprised when our older children, their friends, and even more established middle-income earners, decide to leave Vermont in order to seek out greener pasturesÑ and a freer life.

Congratulations Lady Tigers! MUHS Tigers From page 1

On their return to Middlebury, the Tigers were met by a freshly washed, red Middlebury Fire Department truck parked at Mountain View Equipment located on Route 7 near the townline. The firetruck’s lights were ablaze in celebration while a caravan of familes and fans in cars, SuVs and pickup trucks, followed behind the MFD firefighters. As the caravan entered the downtown area, fansÑ including several local business owners who support MuHS athletics

throughout the yearÑ lined Main Street and greeted the team bus as it passed the traffic roundabout in front of Two Brothers Tavern. From the roundabout, the victory bus continued on across the Cross Street Bridge to its final destination—the MUHS campus. Following their big state win, MuHS Coaches Tim Howlett, Matt Brush and Derek Bartlett appeared pleased with the players; they acknowledged that hard work, team spirit, sportsmanship, and dedication payed off big time.

Green Mt. Power seeks environmental award nominees RuTLAND Ð Green Mountain Power is inviting nominations for the 2014 GMP-Zetterstrom Environmental Award, named for famed osprey advocate Meeri Zetterstrom. The award is presented annually to one person, business, group or non-profit to honor a significant contribution to VermontÕ s environment. It will be accompanied by a $2,500 donation to the winnerÕ s environmental cause. ZetterstromÕ s efforts began at Lake Arrowhead, which straddles the border of Milton and Georgia, Vermont. She launched a long-running effort to educate Vermonters about the osprey and help them expand their range in the Green Mountain State. Starting in 1988, the state and several of VermontÕ s utilities be-

gan cooperating to assist the ospreys, creating artificial nesting platforms, buffer zones and educational materials to provide the birds a fighting chance. A decade later, the first osprey chick in memory hatched and fledged at Lake Arrowhead, and eventually the birds’ revival allowed their removal from the Vermont Endangered Species List. Past award recipients include the Lake Champlain Committee, which has taken a lead role in addressing issues facing Lake Champlain; Sally Laughlin, a wildlife advocate and scientist whose work was instrumental in restoring three species of endangered birds in Vermont; Michael Smith, founder and driving force behind RutlandÕ s Pine Hill Park; and Margaret Fowle, who

has long led VermontÕ s peregrine falcon restoration program, which is responsible for their return from the brink of extinction. Nominations for the GMP-Zetterstrom Environmental Award will be accepted through March 31, and the winner announced in the spring. The winner will be chosen by a panel of GMP employees with responsibilities related to land management, resource protection, community relations and education, and environmental compliance. Vermonters of any age may be nominated. For a nomination application and more information, visit and click on the Ò communityÓ tab.

Swift Park improvements discussed MIDDLEBuRY Ñ At a Middlebury Select Board meeting last week, Middlebury Design Advisory Committee member Chris Zeoli reported that the DACÕ s Feb. 4 meeting was dedicated to a discussion about proposed improvements at Jessica Swift Park. The committee recommended focusing on making improvements at or above the 100-year flood line only, allowing the area below the base flood line to remain in its natural state. Committee members also suggested incorporating Industrial design features into the plan for the park, to complement existing architectural elements.

Just the other day I was running around enjoying being with the staff and jumping on their laps. I have lots of energy and look forward to going on lots of walks with my new family. IÕ m a special guy who will make a nice companion once I have the time I need to relax and enjoy my new home. If you think weÕ d make a nice pair please stop by and say hi. BOEuF 1 year old.

IÕ ll bet you havenÕ t seen many that look like me. I arrived at the shelter on Feb. 7 as a stray from Poultney and havenÕ t looked back since.

Labrador Retriever mix. IÕ m a very sweet, gentle lady who loves going for walks. When I see the leash I get so excited that IÕ ll be headed out for a walk. I
