Weather hampers sugar season

SWEET SEASON

By Lou Varricchio Lou@ addison-eagle.com MIDDLEBURY Ñ Vermont sugar producers are having a devil of a time this spring as they wait for the ideal conditions to tap area maple trees and collect sap to be rendered into multiple grades of syrup. A tradition passed on to English and French settlers in the region by Native Americans, maple sugaring is both business and an annual rite of spring in Vermont and other northern states and Canadian provinces. This winterÕ s extreme cold and delayed start to warm days and cold nightsÑ typically ideal for sugaringÑ has been a challenge to local farmers. CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Warning: ice in the North Country is no longer safe By Lou Varricchio Lou@ addison-eagle.com MIDDLEBURY Ñ Even during the recent cold spell the high sun angle has been absorbed by water below the surface. That warmer water is melting the ice from the bottom up, so even if a surface seems solid it is likely weakened significantly. Warm temperatures forecast will degrade ice even more so it is best to assume that no ice surface is safe. If you or anyone you know ventures onto the ice and experiences trouble - keep the following in mind: Always keep your pets on a leash if walking near a partially frozen waterway. If a pet falls through the ice do not attempt to rescue your pet, go for help. Reach-Throw-Go. If a companion falls through the ice and you are unable to reach that person from shore, throw them something (rope, jumper cables, tree branch, or similar secure object). If this does not work, go for help before you also become a victim. Get medical assistance for the victim immediately. If you fall in, try not to panic. Turn toward the direction from which you came. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface, working forward by kicking your feet. Once out, remain lying on the ice (do not stand) and roll away from the hole. Vermont ice surfaces are weakening rapidly this week. Photo by J. Kirk Edwards

Alternate Middlebury town hall, gym plan offered By Lou Varricchio

lou@addison-eagle.com MIDDLEBURY Ñ Howard Ò SkipÓ Brush, vice chairman of the Middlebury Development Review Board, is circulating a citizenÕ s petition to bring the town hall and gymnasium plans to a revote in April. He has served in public office, on and off, in Middlebury since the 1980s. He is also a long-time member of the Memorial Sports Center Commission and MUHS Alumni AssociationÕ s Hall of Fame Committee. BrushÕ s plan includes purchasing the former Lightning Photo buildings at 105 and 111 Court St. (Route 7), building a small addition there, and constructing a gym at the Sports Center. Among the voters who were displeased by the process leading up to the March vote, BrushÕ s alternate approvalÑ if approvedÑ would shave approximately $800,000 of the townÕ s current plan. The Eagle asked Brush about his proposal and how his plan improves on the plan approved during Town Meeting balloting. Brush was affiliated with the former Brush Motors located at 16 Creek Rd. He was the former director of purchasing at Middlebury College until he retired in 2010. Eagle: What prompted your drive to bring the Middlebury town hall, senior center and gym plan for a revote? You have to get signatures for a Ò petition of reconsiderationÓ thatÕ s due April 3. Brush: We need the signatures of 232 registered voters in Middlebury. I had originally contacted the Select Board three months ago with a plan to purchase 105 and 111 Court St., the former (now vacant) Lightning Photo building for town offices and the senior center (and a new gym at the Memorial Sports Center). I was told that there were no optionsÑ it was an either/or situation. I said I wouldnÕ t do anything until after the vote; I and others felt the vote would fail. But one week before Town Meeting, the town sent out a color brochure to residents. So, I thought, Ô well, that changes everything now.Õ All that attention diverted what we thought would be a failure. Eagle: You distributed the Court Street new proposal just before the vote on your own dime, right? Brush: I started delivering them the week before... Eagle: We never received it... Brush: We went door-to-door and passed out 670 of them in Middlebury and East Middlebury. The proposal asked residents to please vote and consider voting Ò noÓ on the town plan as proposed. Eagle: Residents have a lot of different views on this. It certainly has stirred up the pot, so to speak. Brush: As I see it, there are a number of ideas for this reconsideration. There are those who think that we should keep the current buildings and renovate them. Frankly, I think theyÕ re en-

ergy dinosaurs. We’ll spend a lot of money and heat spaces we donÕ t need to heat. And then there are people who didnÕ t like the process and thought it was crammed down their throats and we didnÕ t get enough chance for input. And then there are people, like me, who like the Court Street idea. But it never really got an consideration... ThatÕ s what forced the petition. It has taken on a life of its own. It has generated a lot of support... Eagle: How do voters get to sign the petition if theyÕ d like a revote? Brush: Well, as of March 26 we had over 100 signatures. But we have reserved the American Legion on Monday, March 31, 4-7 p.m., to come in and sign the petition. The town clerk will go through the list to make sure all signatures are registered Middlebury voters. Eagle: Briefly, what is your alternate proposal? What will it cost? Brush: A municipal building is a destination... My feeling is itÕ s not a building that draws people to the downtown. If I am going to a hockey game in, say, St. Johnsbury, I am not going to go look for the municipal building. I donÕ t think it has to be downtown as some believe. Businesses downtown rely on parking spaces. The town would take away parking places. ItÕ s unrealistic to think that municipal workers, or visitors, are going to park a few blocks away. There was some talk of a parking deck with retail pace, but that was just talk. Also, youÕ re going to lock in the library. If the Ilsley wants to expand, they wonÕ t be able to. I just donÕ t think people are drawn to a downtown area because of a government building. Eagle: How about the gymnasium being approved for Creek Road? Brush: Well, the traffic and parking concern on Creek Road is a real issue. There’s no traffic light at Court Street and Creek Road.

The former locations of WFAD Radio and Lightning Photo, at 105 Court St., is currently vacant and being proposed as alternate Middlebury town hall. Photo by Lou Varricchio

And thereÕ s also a proposal for a housing project on Creek Road with overflow parking there... So there are issues. The residents on Creek Road have problems with people parking on their lawns during school games... ItÕ s just the wrong place. The new proposal costs: Purchase of 105 Court St., $350,000 and 111 Court St., $150,000; building an addition to 105 Court St. for the senior center, $525,000; and new construction of a gym addition to the Sport Center, $1,365,000. The playground would be relocated toward Court Street... and other expenses... Total cost would be $3, 715,000. Roughly $800,000 less than the voted plan. Voters may get a free copy of the plan, and justification, from me. Eagle: Thank you for talking with us about this important community issue.

Police find heroin

RUTLAND Ñ Vermont State Police conducted a motor vehicle stop March 21 for a traffic violation on Strongs Avenue in the City of Rutland. As a result of the traffic stop several search warrants were executed, one of which was for a passenger Roberto Pabon, 33, of Connecticut. Pabon was found to have numerous baggies containing various narcotics inside an orifice. Currently Pabon is being charged with the following felonies, trafficking heroin, possession of heroin, possession of cocaine and conspiracy. Pabon had 13.6 grams of heroin, 5.5 grams of heroin and 10.5 grams of cocaine hidden inside him. Further charges are anticipated after the successful recovery of the remaining baggies.

From the Editor

T.R. and the hyphenated American

D

uring the final three years of his life, former U.S. President Theodore Ò TeddyÓ Roosevelt (R) gave considerable thought to the waves of European immigrants which were sweeping the nation; they had started in the mid19th century and continued through the opening decades of the 1900s. Both my paternal and maternal Italian grandparents, who had arrived at the Ellis Island processing station in New York Harbor during the first decade of the 1900s, were among those European people T.R. must have been thinking about near the end of his days. In most respects, my grandparents were T.R.Õ s idea of model immigrants of the era; that is, they quickly learned English and assimilated themselves unabashedly into the now sadly passŽ Ò melting potÓ . They were eager to jump into the mainstream of American life and leave their impoverished past behind. Both sets of grandparents were equally quick to join political parties. The womenfolk were proud to show off their right-to-vote when it arrived, too, by the 1920s. Being a lively mix of Democrats and Republicans caused some friction between these husbands and wives; in fact, that rough-and-tumble political tradition continues in my family to this day. These Roman Catholic Italians-turned-Americans were not highly schooled, but they were far from being the Ò low informationÓ voters we hear so much about today. In an era before television and Internet, they gobbled up the news by reading newspapers and listening to the radio. They knew their stuff; they could tell you exactly where Montana was located on a USA map (never having visited the place), yet they endured the occasional insult from ignorant Protestant employers as well as passers by. No matter, they were a tough breed of late pioneers; they were happy to escape old Europe. Roosevelt penned his thoughts about U.S. immigrantsÑ and what it means to be an AmericanÑ in two famous texts, dated 1915 and 1919. His statements are often quoted (and misquoted) by folks on both side of todayÕ s immigration amnesty debate. This newspaper first published Roosevelt’s words over a decade ago. In the intervening years, reader Shirley Whittman of Shoreham kept the yellowed Eagle clipping of T.R.Õ s words and found some solace in reading it. Last week, Mrs. Whittman called this editor and wondered if it was time, again, to reprint the PresidentÕ s words. Of course weÕ re always happy to respond to reader requests, so we have gone back and researched both RooseveltÕ s 1915 letter to the Knights of Columbus of New York City and his 1919 letter to the American Defense Society. Both texts exhibit RooseveltÕ s feeling on an emotional yet equally political and philosophical subject. When you read T.R.’s words today, you realize

April 5, 2014

that his argument about what it means to be a real American is on-going, evolving. In a modern world where many intellectuals would like to think nationalism is a thing of the past, stirrings of flag and country are actually being reinvigorated around the globe (witness China and Russia of late). What follows are the words of Theodore Roosevelt assembled with the help of Reaganite Republican.com: 1915Ñ Ó There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. Ò This is just as true of the man who puts Ô nativeÕ before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Ò Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. Ò But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else. Ò The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalitiesÑ an intricate knot of German-Americans, IrishAmericans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans, or Italian-AmericansÑ each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality than with the other citizens of the American Republic. Ò The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American.Ó 1919Ñ “...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.Ó Roosevelt penned his final words on immigration on Jan. 3, 1919, three days before he died. Nearly a century later, many Americans and would-be Americans are divided, even brazenly resistant, to the idea of RooseveltÕ s concept of Americanism. Wither our America and T.R.’s ideal of Americans without a hyphen? Will we be able to stop the slide toward ethnic and political Balkanization, too? UncertainÑ for the future is a veil through which no one, not even a president, can peer. Lou Varricchio, the Vermont Eagle

Stroke, Osteoporosis screenings coming to Vergennes, Vermont By Lou Varricchio

lou@addison-eagle.com VERGENNES Ñ Residents living in and around the Vergennes, Vt community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. St Peters Parish Hall will host a Life Line Screening on April 9. The site is located at 85 S Maple St. in Vergennes. Four key points every person needs to know: • Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability • 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke • Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke • Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Packages start at $149. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-2371287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Preregistration is required.

Town to conduct retail-market analysis MIDDLEBURY Ñ The Better Middlebury Partnership (BMP) and the Town of Middlebury have launched a retail market study in partnership with Arnett Muldrow & Associates, an economic development and marketing firm out of Greenville, S.C. The town, which has shown support regarding the informal “buy local” campaign, did not select an in-state firm to do the study. for reasons unknown. The project kicked off in March with a preliminary visit to the community and will continue with a zip code survey and in-depth market analysis. Results from the zip code survey, comments from the public, and an in-depth market analysis will ultimately serve as the foundation for retail strategies as the community moves forward in business retention and recruitment. The project will also aid in implementing the Town Plan, which calls for this conversation, and inform Town leaders as they consider new zoning regulations. The goal of the study is to determine what kind of retail is desirable and feasible for Middlebury and what opportu- nities exist to fill gaps in the market while maintaining MiddleburyÕ s character. Public participation will play a vital role in the success of this project, and BMP President Ben Wilson emphasized the need to have broad community involvement. “The more people who participate, the better,” said Wilson. “We want to get all viewpoints on the table – everyone should have a voice in the Future of Retail in Middlebury Study.Ó To engage the public, the community is invited to attend the first of two public presentations on April 29 in the at the Ilsley Public Library. The meeting will be an opportunity to learn about Middlebury demographics and ask questions about national trends in retailas they pertain to the future of retail in Middlebury. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. and is open to the public. Snacks and childcare will be provided. To take the online Future of Retail Survey, see the following: experiencemiddlebury.com/live/retail/future-of-retail Tripp Muldrow, president of Arnett Muldrow & Associates, also stressed the importance of public input. “We would like everyone in the greater Middlebury area to weight in with their thoughts and ideas,Ó Muldrow said. A survey has been created to reach as many citizens as possible, and the community is invited to access it online at middretailfuture.org. Muldrow has extensive experience in Vermont. They have worked on similar projects in Barre, Brandon, Brattleboro, Burlington, Rutland, Springfield, St. Albans, Waitsfield, Warren, and Waterbury. The project is being funded through taxpayer and other funds by the BMP, Town of Middlebury, Orton Family Foundation, Walter Cerf Fund, and a Municipal Planning Grant from the Department of Housing and Community Development.

Following the close of its winter farmers market event on Saturday, April 12, the Vermont Farmers Food Center will join with the Rutland community in launching several new “green” achievements planned throughout 2014.

Community Gardens Build Day, April 12 By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denoubs.com RUTLAND Ñ Following the close of its winter farmers market event on Saturday, April 12, the Vermont Farmers Food Center will join with the Rutland community in launching several new Ò greenÓ achievements planned throughout 2014. The first of these will be a Community Gardens Build Day event establishing new gardens prominently sited at the front of the property along West Street adjacent to the revitalized Baxter Street Alley. Live local music will round out the dayÕ s fun festivities. As part of its mission to build a local, sustainable food system one plate at a time, ten raised beds will be erected and filled with 35-cubic yards of healthy, local soil amended with organic compost creating 16-inch-high gardens with hoop house coverings extending the growing season. They will serve as a demonstration garden and a community resource for all ages to learn sustainable growing practices, where our food comes from, how it grows, healthy eating, new tastes and bright futures. The work begins at 2:30 p.m. Greg Cox, president of VFFC, describes the vision as Ò a community treasure, both functional and beautiful.Ó He said, Ò Health is a nutrition-based experience that begins with healthy soil producing healthy food which, when grown locally, produces a healthy community.Ó Produce from the gardens will address nutrition education at VFFC and more widely through community organizations. It will also support local food security programs in partnership with the Rutland Area Farm and Food LinkÕ s gleaning program as well as serving as a Ô take as you can useÕ model for those in need, an example of the community promoting its own resilience. Combined funding totaling $3,000 has been requested from the Ben & JerryÕ s Foundation by VFFC and from the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund in partnership with Project VISION. A further appeal for nearly $5,000 has been submitted to the National Parks and Recreation Association in partnership with the Darden Foundation through the Rutland Recreation and Parks Department. Should this additional request be granted, the project will grow to include rainwater harvesting, on-site composting, a drip irrigation system and additional beds being added through the year. Generous community support is already evident. Over $1,000 has been received from the Local, a nightclub and dance venue

in Rutland. Chip Greeno, owner of The Local and a member of Project VISIONÕ s Community and Neighborhood Revitalization subcommittee, credits the generosity of over 350 of his patrons in support of the gardens and the northwest neighborhoodÕ s revitalization. Other donations include 840 sf of Z-pavers through the Rutland Recreation and Parks Department with 140 lf of split rail fencing being donated by Carpenter & Costin. Several groups of local youth have already begun work constructing the frames. The afternoonÕ s event will expand RutlandÕ s annual seed exchange organized by Diane Alberts with Jason Price speaking on the importance of seed saving to maintaining genetic diversity. The day will also launch the Ò Good Things Are Growing in My NeighborhoodÓ campaign promoting gardening and neighborhood revitalization in partnership with Project VISION. Be watching for evidence at community gatherings and across neighborhoods as this campaign sprouts and grows. Joe Kraus, chairman of Project VSION offers this: Ò This is a great example of our partners throughout the community working for the greater good.Ó All are invited to be part of the afternoon, whether bringing tools and workboots and rolling up their sleeves, or by bringing the family along to watch and learn and cheer them on. Favorite vegetable and flower seeds to share with neighbors in the seed exchange are encouraged. VFFC is located at 251 West St. in Rutland. Ò VFFC is continually recognized now as a model for other communities across Vermont and now much more widely. In January it hosted over 35-masters degree students in Sustainable Food Systems from across the U.S. and beyond through Green Mountain College,Ó said publicist Karen L. Ranz. Ò Other accomplishments planned for 2014 include a demonstration/learning kitchen promoting basic and advanced skills in cooking healthy meals, advanced cooking techniques including baking and preserving, live demonstrations during the winter markets, and hosting farmstead dinners during the best of the summer and fall harvest seasons.Ó Secure donations supporting the Vermont Farmers Food CenterÕ s general fund can be made through the website, vermontfarmersfoodcenter.org, or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 1008, Rutland, Vt. 05701. For further information about how an organization, individual, group or family can participate in the dayof event as well as with preparations and throughout the year, contact Greg Cox at coxveg@hotmail.com or 802-683-4606.

Teens bring positive messages to youth By Allison Iannetti Special to the Eagle RUTLAND Ñ A group of motivated, empowered youth, accompanied by their adult leaders, visited Rutland County recently to give inspiring presentations to area youth. Students in grades 6 to 8, from three Rutland-area schools, were inattendance. The Youth-2-Youth program, born in New Hampshire and sponsored through the Dover Police Department, has been working with New England young people since 1994. Not only has the program played key roles in policy change in their community, they frequently produce public service announcements, and travel the region giving presentations. The Rutland presentation included educational, real life stories about drug abuse tragedies, media targeting, and a brief overview on how the brain is adversely affected by use of alcohol and other drugs. The event was organized by the Rutland Area Prevention Coalition in partnership with the Vermont Department of Health through the Partnership for Success Grant. The goal of the effort is that area youth will become engaged in finding ways to promote public awareness of the prevalence and dangers of underage drinking and substance abuse in our communities. While engaging in these activities the youth will utilize and develop public speaking and presentation skill, media literacy, advocacy and knowledge of legislature and public policy. Approximately 264 students attended, as well as many faculty and staff. One adult commented at the end that if he had to describe what he had just seen in one word he would sayÑ Ó effective.Ó

It was an ideal start to getting the local community on board to help our children make good choices and keep them safe. With the Rutland Area Prevention Coalition (RAP) as the overseeing agency, a group is in the beginning stage for youth in Rutland County. Implementing youth guided programs such as these allow for the teens to learn how to be empowered and appropriate avenues to take for their voices to be heard. The additional benefit to our community is parent and public education regarding these important topics as well as resources on where they can find help and further information. These programs allow us to be part of the solution in a time when there is such an overwhelming problem. Be sure to look for substance abuse prevention messages in and around local neighborhoods, stores, and schools. Allison Iannetti is a local youth coordinator.

Brandon man sentenced in fraud case By Lou Varricchio

lou@addison-eagle.com BRANDON — Richard Weldon of Brandon was convicted on March 25 in Vermont Superior Court, Windsor Criminal Division, of five misdemeanor counts of false pretenses. The convictions stemmed from Weldon’s submission of falsified timesheets in order to

obtain payment for services that were not provided while he was an employer-of-record for a home-based health care worker under the Developmental Disability Services program, a Vermont Medicaid program. Weldon was sentenced to two-and-a-half to five years in jail, all suspended, and placed on two years of probation subject to standard conditions and special conditions, including 60 hours of community service and a prohibition

that he not work as a home-based care provider under a Medicaid waiver program. Weldon was also ordered to pay $9,620 in restitution to Vermont Medicaid. The case was investigated and prosecuted by

the Medicaid Fraud and Residential Abuse Unit within the Vermont Attorney General’s Office with assistance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General.

Sugar Season From page 1

Ed Butterfield, who operates a sugaring business on Munger Street in Middlebury, began his seasonal in earnest, sort of, work last weekend. Butterfield was working a sugar bush along Route 116 along the slope of the Cobble, a natural remnant of the last Ice Age. He was joined by co-workers Ryan Selleck and Dick Bassett. Ò The weather sounds good for this week, but itÕ s such a crap shoot. ItÕ s getting late,Ó said Butterfield. “As of March 29, we’ve only made 120 gallons so far. We first tapped around March 3. Normally in early March is when we get the runs; we had a few runs in between, but you can see our collection is half filled with ice.” Sugar producers need daytime temperatures between 35 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit as well as temperatures in the mid 20s at night. Since late February, night-time temperatures have dropped to single digits, even to zero and below, in some lower elevation places in Addison and Rutland counties. “When it’s cold, even when the Sun comes out, and the sap starts to run during mid day,” Butterfield noted, “it stops again when it deep freezes at night.” In addition to a rough start to sugaring this year, producers are also dealing with the new standardized maple- syrup grading system. “It was hard enough when they switched grading systems 20 years ago,” Butterfield noted, “now we have to educate the public to a whole new system. The new system is really designed for those folks who donÕ t know a maple from a pine; a lot of this, I think, is driven by packaging for sale here and overseas.Ó Butterfield said the sap of black birch tree is another source of sap for syrup making, but its sap cycle is like the maple and other hardwoods. This lesser known source tree for sugar is less common in Vermont woods; its sugar content is about half that of the sugar maple.

Ryan Selleck, Ed Butterfield and Dick Bassett began collecting maple sap, on and off, in early March. They are pictured here at a sugar bush along the east side of the Cobble on Route 116 in Middlebury March 29. Photo by Lou Varricchio

College to donate parcel to town of Middlebury By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY Ñ Middlebury College will donate a piece of downtown real estate to the Town of Middlebury in a bid to fulfill its campus plans which include securing the triangle upon which the current municipal office building stands. The college has expressed its preference that a new town hall be built on the Osborne House property located at 77 Main St. next to the downtown traffic roundabout. The 1.4-acre plot, which is located near the Ilsley Public Library, will be given to the town, according to Middlebury Select Board Chairman Dean George this week. George also noted that the parcel fronts a section of Otter Creek. According to a report prepared by Town Manager Kathleen

Ramsay, George read a statement at the March 25 Select Board meeting which was prepared by Middlebury College announcing that the College Board of Trustees had approved a recommendation by President Liebowitz to donate the land it owns behind Ilsley Public Library, known as the Economic Development Initiative property, to the town to facilitate broad public engagement in determining its future use. The Board has been blamed by some critics for brokering a deal with the college without seeking much public input leading up to the Town Meeting vote. The plan was narrowly approved in early March. Howard Ò SkipÓ Brush, a member of the Middlebury Development Review Board, is circulating a citizenÕ s petition to bring the town hall and gymnasium plans to a revote sometime in the spring.

CCV names new academic dean By Lou Varricchio

lou@addison-eagle.com MONTPELIER Ñ The Community College of Vermont is pleased to name Deborah Stewart as the new dean of academic affairs. She will succeed current academic dean Linda Gabrielson, who announced her April 11 retirement last year. A search committee whittled the initial 51 candidates applying from all over the country down to three finalists who were invited to CCV to meet with students, faculty and staff at the Montpelier, Upper Valley (White River Junction) and Winooski academic centers. Broadcasted to all centers online, each candidate hosted a presentation in Montpelier focusing on their strategies for active learning and keeping students engaged in classrooms.

After careful deliberation, Stewart, a CCV graduate, longtime faculty member and current dean of students, was chosen to succeed Gabrielson. Stewart served as the CollegeÕ s associate academic dean from 2001-2010, and co-chaired the NEASC accreditation team in 2011-12. During her time at CCV she has worked with national organizations such as the Kahn Academy and the Lumina FoundationÕ s Achieving the Dream initiative to improve student retention and persistence. She has been instrumental in transforming the placement and assessment process for incoming students and a driving force for student support during their time at CCV advancing the peer-tutoring and mentoring programs and associated with CCVÕ s learning centers. Stewart brings decades of experience and leadership in effec-

tive teaching practices, curriculum development and student services to her new role. As a published poet, with numerous academic publications and presentations to her credit and a rich history of service to CCV, Deborah Stewart her perspective on and contributions to planning, implementing, managing and supervising all academic programs and personnel at the College will be invaluable. Stewart will transition starting in April and officially begin her new role on July 1.
