Second ski race cancelled in county this year

RIPTON — Unusual weather conditions forced race organizers to cancel the Romance Half Marathon Race and Tour, scheduled last Saturday, Michael Hussey, director of Rikert Nordic Center announced. This was the second ski event canceled in the past two weeks in Addison County. “Race officials made the decision based on the unseasonably warm weather, lack of snow and an unfavorable forecast going into the weekend,” Hussey said. “We’ve already decided to look ahead to next season.” The 25-kilometer crosscountry ski event was designed to be a classic technique ski tour starting at Rikert Nordic Center in Ripton and following the Catamount and other trails in the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area. Participants could also opt to ski a 15- kilometer course. The event was organized to promote the trails systems in the region as a winter sports destination. The Romance Half Marathon is set up by the Moosalamoo Association, the Rikert Nordic Center and the Catamount Trail Association; the event has been rescheduled for next February.

Solar power array under construction By Lou Varricchio

MIDDLEBURY Construction work is underway at Middlebury College for what will be Middlebury’s largest solarpower station. Ground was broken for the site, located on Route 125 less than a half-mile from the campus core, in late January. Last week, two arrays were completed on the 1.5 acre site—more are on the way. Laborers at the site got a jump-start on the project with sunny and warmer-than-normal weather last week. Weybridge-based Backspin Renewables is doing the work. AllEarth Renewables of Williston is building the campus “solar farm” employing its own AllSun Trackers units. The college facility will consist of 34 photovoltaic arrays that will track the Sun as it rises and sets during the day. In total, the mini power station will produce, on average, 200,000 kilowatt-hours each year it remains in operation. “From a financial standpoint, this is a low risk project with a positive impact,” according to

Workers of Weybridge-based Backspin Renewables install new photovoltaic power arrays on the Middlebury College campus last week.

Cynthia Huard: sound, math and stories By Lou Varricchio

Master pianist and music educator Cynthia Huard performs at Middlebury College, Feb. 18, in the Mahaney Center for the Arts.

MIDDLEBURY – Accomplished musician and educator Cynthia Huard of Middlebury College developed a passion for music early in life. “I love sound, math and stories,” she said. “Music is all those things.” Huard has made her mark as a stellar pianist and harpsichordist in the USA and in Europe. Being a true Middlebury internationalist, Huard feels at home here as much as she does across the pond. “I lived in Austria. The fabric of life in Austria includes all types of music,” she said. “I loved it.” According to her official college biographical profile, Huard’s musicianship is a significant component of the Rochester Chamber Music Society’s summer concert series; she is the society’s artistic director and


also joins its internationally known artists as performer. She has been heard on National Public Radio and recorded a sound album of South American music. She also revels in contemporary music, including performing the Vermont premier of Nico Muhly work. She has also performed works by Vermont composers Erik Nielsen, T. L. Read, and Middlebury College’s Tristan Axelrod. As a devoted chamber music interpreter, she has credits with the award-winning Lark Quartet, cellist Nathaniel Rosen, and chamber players with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony, the National Symphony, the Colorado Symphony, the Utah Symphony, and the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. But as an educator, she brings her See CYNTHIA HUARD, page 11

Thoughts on reforming the Vergennes school board


Vergennes School Board Chairwoman Cheryl Brinkman has been in the news in recent months appearing before the Vergennes Board of Aldermen. Brinkman has focused on changing a law that permits five percent of eligible voters to petition their school board to "reconsider" a vote within 30 days of the original vote. School boards can put any question before the voters, with no limits, with only a simple majority on a five-member board. School boards also have access to taxpayer's money for financing their initiatives through media and mail. Five percent is more than reasonable to level the playing field between "the people" and government. If Brinkman is acting in preparation of the seventh proposal of consolidation to the ANwSU voters, there is a better way to prevent a reconsideration vote: 1. Present voters with all choices under

MIDDLEBURY – Vergennes resident John Billard, 68, pled guilty to a single count of driving under the influence of alcohol, which caused the death of Mary Jane Danyow, 57. Danyow, who died six days after a Jan. 25, 2011, accident, was Billard’s lifelong partner. Billard’s sentence will be held at home. Judge Helen Toor of Vermont Superior Court Middlebury sentenced Billard to six months under court supervision at his Vergennes house, and 250 hours of community service, Feb. 6. Danyow died as a passenger in Billard’s Jeep SUV when the vehicle crossed the snow-covered U.S. Route 7 centerline and struck a Mt. Mansfield Union High School bus last year. The bus went off the highway. Some of the student passengers, members of the school’s hockey team, complained of minor aches and pains related to the accident. “I deeply regret the effect of my action on all of you,” Billard told Danyow family members. A Danyow family member told the judge that the family has forgiven Billard.

Vermont law. Vermont Statute 16 - 706 specifically states that it does not "prohibit informal exploration between and among school districts prior to the formation of a study committee". The ANwSU district school boards have denied "voters opportunities to make local decisions regarding school choice and other enrollment options, in Vermont public schools and in approved independent schools, that are appropriate for their communities," ironically this comes directly from H-153. Therefore, each school board should sanction a town committee (elected officials, teachers, business owners, retirees, parents, and a lawyer) to explore and provide the electorate their lawful options, "prior to the formation of a study committee". 2. If the individual school districts, not the ANwSU board, vote to create the formal study committee again, this committee re-

quires a broad representation of members within the participating towns (don't forget the lawyer), as above. Brinkman also was in the spotlight regarding town board transparency. School board transparency could definitely improve: 1. All town school boards should be required to record their meetings, including the ANwSU Supervisory and Executive Boards, as practiced by the current town boards. I applaud the high school board, who began recording their meetings this past fall and linking them on the website. I also applaud school boards for recently making board minutes available online. 2. The ANwSU district town school boards have disregarded Law V.S.A. 16 - 563 (10) since Tom O'Brien became the AnwSU district's superintendent. Electorate distribution of the auditor's summary and access to the auditor's final reports are the taxpayer's lawful rights. Easy access is a school board's transparency. Accessing audits online is easy and saves everyone time and money. It's time for Chairwoman Brinkman to reform the school board's practices. Carol Kaufman

From the Editor

Cracked, whacked A Hobbs Act violation in the White House? and twisted J

ust as our teachers are on an on-going crusade against school bullying, Vermont’s minority political party is on a similar crusade, too. The Vermont GOP believes the state’s teachers’ union has played the bully in the “school” of state politics. Last week, the Vermont Republican Party asked State Attorney Gen. William Sorrell (D) to investigate a charge of bullying by a representative of the American Federation of Teachers. Vermont GOP acting chairman Paul Carroccio asked the attorney general to investigate what his party sees as an unusual case of political extortion. Carroccio cited several news accounts about the incident. "…It was reported that a representative of the American Federation of Teachers bullied and intimidated a Vermont lawmaker as part of a campaign to unionize child-care providers,” Carroccio noted in a public statement Feb. 8. "One individual connected with this lobbying effort had the gall to intimidate a leader of the Vermont Senate by sliding a piece of paper across his desk that showed how much money the union had spent on political-action committees supporting that legislator and other Vermont Democrats, and asking him to support the bill.” If Carroccio is accurate in describing what happened to the unnamed Democrat, then this kind of behavior, and the knuckle cracking, pinky-ring folks who endorse it, should be shown the door.

The Vermont GOP claim that the AFT may have violated the U.S. Hobbs Act, a U.S. federal law that prohibits “actual or attempted robbery or extortion” is a serious charge. The Hobbs Act shouldn’t be an alien thing to Vermont’s AFT union leaders and lobbyists—the law is often cited when it involves corruption aimed at union members. To our knowledge, Vermont’s unions have rarely been involved in such Hobbs Act violations, so the Carroccio charge is all the more severe. Bullying and intimidating lawmakers as they consider bills is a shocking thing to most Vermonters. And no matter where you stand on teacher union issues, this charge deserves serious attention. A formal investigation by the Attorney General’s Office, if it occurs, could lead to federal law enforcement authorities becoming involved. We often hear about the “Vermont Way” in Montpelier, where bipartisan cooperation— for the good of all Vermonters—should trump petty partisanship. So that’s we applaud Carroccio’s attempt to turn a spotlight on alleged back alley stuff that may have occurred in the halls of the Vermont Capitol. This kind of behavior should never be tolerated. In Carroccio’s own words, “This type of behavior is reprehensible and has no place in the Vermont State House.”

I am telling you, I am astounded when I’ll slip on a bit of ice and within a thousandth of a second I’m hovering 4 feet above, nearly perfectly flat, like a table top, a drive-way, or sidewalk, when inexplicably one leg bends just so and allows it’s foot to catch turf just enough to right myself, and tah-dah, I’m planted vertically and walking again, as if nothing happened. Next time you place your one foot out the car door onto the ground, and you apply your body weight to it, and it slips, gives way, and you start to go down, but your arm grips the top of the door, stopping your fall and putting your body right again; Next time that happens, take a moment, as I often do, to realize, you were just a fraction, a mouse hair, from utter disaster.

Preventing crisis-waste; Chicago would be envious


nce, Chicago was the hog butcher for the world and City of the Big Shoulders—now it’s the place where high-rise apartments are deemed adequate only for the Lakeshore Drive upper-income quintile but not for the lower (or no-) income quintile inland. This all explains why such subsidized tower-apartment complexes as Robert Taylor Homes and Cabrini Green, built with taxpayer, have now been demolished also at taxpayer expense.

A new generation of sociologists now preaches that the former tenants require garden apartments, or insertion-bygovernment into single-family neighborhoods, once nice houses readily available as the middle class (first white, now black and white) continues its flight. Chicago is now also the place where such quotes as “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste” are provenanced. On a much smaller scale, the same taxpayer-funded build-demolish-rebuild pattern is now playing out in Rutland, Vt. In Rutland, the Forest Park low-rise apartment complex is being replaced with the Hickory Street Apartments, a low-rise-apartment complex Hickory Street planned with expert sociologist advice as a “mixed-income” development. The Hickory Street project is “…designed to look more like a traditional neighborhood.” We’re told that unsubsidized units are going vacant because “…people don’t want to move in the winter,” but it’s probable that hidden subsidies are now or soon will be built into the supposedly “unsubsidized” rents, so the mixed-income image can be claimed, and it may work because –no surprise—truly unsubsidized housing in the modern Vermont is quite pricey. As various metrics have shown, the overall cost-of-stay in Vermont is quite pricey, which explains middle-class flight and a demographic re-structuring toward a two-tier economy, with upper-income quintiles at one end and lower- or no-income quintiles at the other. The top quintiles are economically based in government, financials, and information, with a fast-growing passiveincome sub-sector; the lower quintiles are based in lowwage services and a set of subsidies ranging from taxes to food to (of course) housing. Even so, such advocacy groups as the D.C.-based Corporation For Enterprise Development have discerned a crisis-in-the-stats: that “16

percent of Vermont residents have almost no savings or assets.” My guess: most of these folks are also in the bottom income quintile. A further guess: most vote D not R. To prevent crisis-waste, CFED proposes multiple government fixes for “asset poverty”: taxpayer-funded programs encouraging (and subsidizing, no doubt) home ownership, higher education, micro-enterprise (the obligatory sub-reference to women-and-minorities, there) and, of course, the accumulation of savings and assets. Any self-esteeming D-majority government (as in Vermont, for example) would agree; it’s already heavily engaged in subsiding the bottom half of the two-tier economy in return, of course, for their grateful votes. And it’s already heavily engaged in subsidy-publicity, to make sure the recipients understand the expected quid pro quo in plain ballot terms. A student of recent Vermont history might reasonably speculate that Montpelier has quite consciously (applicable D-hero-FDR quote: “Nothing in politics happens by accident”) and quite successfully raised the cost-of-stay in Vermont, and in return expects the grateful votes of beneficiary electoral blocs: the lower-income quintiles, the public education sector, and of course the enviroactivists, whose rewards are such accomplishments as higher costs for— say—energy, which they welcome. It’s a successful formula, based on a manufactured set of crises, not at all wasted but put to very effective use. Chicago would be envious.

Vermont music lovers scooping up 2012 Montreal Jazz Fest tickets By Lou Varricchio

MONTREAL — The Montreal Jazz Festival 2012 is a big hit with Vermont jazz lovers. Festival organizers are reporting increased sales south of the border. What is already luring Vermonters to cross the international border to attend this June's jazz fest? This year's Montreal jazz lineup includes James Taylor, Flamenco Hoy, Tony Award winner and living legend Liza Minnelli, sensual U.S. vocalist Melody Gardot, accordionist Richard Galliano, and the Barr Brothers. Canadian entertainment writer Evelyn Reid said Gardot appears to be part of the reason Vermont jazz fans are coming back to the festival. “Gardot is almost always seen with sunglasses and a cane, a result of the after effects of a Jeep Cherokee running into her in 2003," according to Reid. "This left Gardot in a body cast with spinal and pelvic injuries as well as a lasting hypersensitivity to light and sound, an accident that the singer claims turned her into a vegetable which did anything but stop the then-fashion student from pursuing a recording career. Gardot actually credits it as a fire starter." U.S. and Canadian fans are flocking to Gardot's emerging stardom. "So, there's appeal on both sides of the border," Reid noted.

Pulp Mill Bridge getting major face-lift By Lou Varricchio

MIDDLEBURY – If you live in Middlebury or Weybridge, you’ve been dealing with the closure of the historic Pulp Mill Bridge since the first week of the New Year, the bridge on Seymour Street will be closed until November as construction workers give the bridge a major structural face-lift. The two-lane covered bridge, span-

ning Otter Creek and linking Weybridge and Middlebury, was built in the 1800s. Alpine Construction of New York is tasked with the nearly $2 million repair project. Mark Sargent, project manager for the Vermont Agency of Transportation, said taxpayers are footing the bill through federal funds. He also noted

that warmer-than-normal weather in January and February are a boon to project laborers. Repairs to the antique bridge will include a new base, roof, and siding; In addition, the bridge truss work will be beefed up to better support increased vehicular traffic on the bridge. Also, both approaches to the bridge will get cosmetic touch ups.

TIME CAPSULE – The Middlebury Lower Project of CVPS is a hydroelectric project along the Otter Creek below the historic covered Pulp Mill Bridge. Hortonia Power built the hydro-power station in 1917, which generates 2,250 kilowatts of “green” electricity. CVPS took control of the facility a few weeks before the 1929 Wall Street Crash.

After Vermont officials informed the would-be salvors that the historic wreck was state property, the men abandoned their for-profit enterprise. To this day, Samuel Morey’s folly remains undisturbed beneath the surface of Lake Morey. And since 1990, no attempt has been made to stir the ghost of the world’s first steamboat.

FAIRLEE – If you’ve never heard of Samuel Morey as the father of the internalcombustion engine, well, you’re not alone. This Vermont inventor, who was born in Connecticut in 1762 and died in Fairlee, Vt., in 1843, was first to pioneer the design and building of gas and steam engines. As early as the late 1700s, Morey patented a combustion engine; however, the annals of American history have passed him by. As one example of history’s cruel trick on Samuel Morey, another inventor, Charles Duryea, is credited as the inventor of America's first gasoline engine in the 1890s. Yet, Duryea had built replicas of the Vermonter ’s combustion engine in order to adapt it to what he saw as the miracle fuel of the future—a volatile, petroleum distillate known as gasoline. According to Samuel Morey’s biographer Bill McKern, “In 1790 he began work on a steam engine capable of propelling a boat. He exhibited his successful models several times, which were observed by Robert Fulton, who secured more extensive financial backing and built the first commercially successful steamboat, using Morey's as the basis for his design.” Morey’s compact and apparently unnamed steam-powered vessel, which sailed the placid water of Lake Morey, his family namesake located in Fairlee, lies at rest at the bottom of this cold lake. Lacking the finances and political connections to pursue more complex engineering tests on the motorized vessel, Morey’s steamboat design was quickly “adopted” by competitor Robert Fulton. Fulton liked what he saw putt putting along the shore of Lake Morey. As fate would have it, historians credit Fulton with building the first successful steamboat, not Morey. And just like with the lives of us common folk, in the lives of great inventors, timing, finances, and who you know mean everything. In the end, even the world’s brightest idea, by itself, means nothing. According to W.C. Jameson, author of “Buried Treasure of New England” which includes a chapter devoted to Morey’s lost steamboat, the Vermont inventor finally gave up on his invention. Dejected, he conceded that Fulton had deeper pockets and better social connections to best continue work on what became known as the S.S. Clermont—“Fulton’s Folly”. One overcast Vermont morning, Morey fired up the wood box on his tiny steamer and headed it out onto Lake Morey. While still aboard, the inventor hammered open the vessel’s lone seacock and scuttled it. As the steamboat went down, Morey swam ashore safely. According to Jameson, “Later, standing on a low hill overlooking the lake, Morey glanced one last time at the place where his steamboat went down, turned, and walked away. Morey was seldom heard from again.” In 1990, two divers combed Lake Morey in

Panthers keep Williams at bay MIDDLEBURY – Middlebury College topped Williams for the second time in three days as the Panthers (118-3, 10-5-1) picked up a 3-2 victory over the Ephs (10-7-5, 7-7-2) in Kenyon Arena. Middlebury remains unbeaten in its last five (4-0-1) games, all of them in NESCAC play, while Williams is winless (0-5-1) in its last six. Middlebury jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 1:54 into the game as Tucker Donahoe scored from the right side past a screened Ryan Purdy. The first period ended with Williams holding an 11-9 shots advantage, trailing 1-0. The Panthers again struck early in the second period, this one coming at the 3:32 mark. Mike Longo fed Tom Freyre, who scored with a knuckler from the left side that found its way into the back of the net. Middlebury netminder Dan Fullam (26 saves) kept it a 2-0 game by denying Nick Anderson on a breakaway at the 11:40 mark. The Panthers held a 9-3 advantage in shots in the second period. Middlebury extended its lead to three 7:07 into the third period, when Trevor Pollock scored his third of the year on a rebound for the power play tally. Williams broke up the shutout at 9:32 as Peter Mistretta scored from a tough angle along the goal line after his initial shot had been saved.

The Ephs made it a one-goal game late, with Bryden McGhee finishing off a scramble in front with just 46 seconds remaining. Williams tried to pull goalkeeper Ryan Purdy (23 saves) in the final seconds, but could not get the puck of their own zone for the extra attacker. Williams outshot Middlebury 11-8 in the third period and 28-26 in the game.

Women's b’ball season finale MIDDLEBURY – The Middlebury College women’s basketball team saw its season come to an end with an 8050 loss at top-ranked Amherst. The Panthers finish the season up at 7-17 overall, 0-10 in NESCAC play. Megan Robertson recorded her second double-double in as many days, closing out a remarkable weekend with 16 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks in only 17 minutes off the bench. Amherst (24-0, 10-0 NESCAC) finished unbeaten in conference play for the third consecutive year, as the Lord Jeffs joined the 2009-10 squad as the only two in school history to finish the regular season at 24-0. Middlebury didn’t register its first points until Maddie Moreau hit a jumper with 14:50 on the clock after the Jeffs opened with an 8-0 run. Amherst made six consecutive shots to take a 21-6 lead with 12 minutes to play, with three-pointers by Shannon Finucane and Caroline Stedman and a

three-point play from Livia Rizzo highlighting the stretch. The Jeffs’ lead hit 20 points when Finucane buried another three-pointer to bring the score to 34-14, and they would lead by at least 20 for the remainder of the half. Amherst shot 52.8 percent from the floor and blocked six shots in the opening 20 minutes, carrying a 47-24 advantage into the locker room. A layup by Stephany Surrette and a jumper from Tracy Borsinger got the Panthers off to a good start in the second frame. Rizzo responded with a layup that ignited a 16-0 Amherst run, and Finucane closed the spurt with another three that brought the score to 63-28 with 13:45 remaining. The visitors would get to within 26 points, but Amherst secured the 30point win when Savannah Holness hit a deep jumper to close out the scoring with 1:03 to play. With their ninth consecutive win over Middlebury, the Jeffs increased their home (60), overall (43) and NESCAC (33) winning streaks. Caroline Stedman scored 13 points for Amherst, while Lem Atanga McCormick added 11 and Marcia Voigt had 10. Borsinger, Moreau and Brittany Perfetti had 10 points apiece for the Panthers, who shot 31.6 percent overall. Surrette led her team with eight rebounds, while Perfetti added three assists and two steals.

New plant hardiness map shows temp changes

By Lou Varricchio

MIDDLEBURY — There has been a clear trend of temperature-change in Vermont since the 1970s, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The USDA’s new 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map, unveiled this week, reflects those changes in Vermont and beyond. It also provides a snapshot of the area climate over a longer period of time. According to the new hardiness zone map, the Champlain Valley area around Middlebury, as well as the area around Rutland, appear as Zone 5a. An earlier edition of the map showed the Middlebury area within zone 5b, a colder zone. The new map is the first revised USDA zone map in 22 years. Dr. Peter Bretting of the USDA in Washington, D.C., said the new map incorporates detailed data sets from as recently as 2005, he said it is a better guide for helping Vermont farmers and gardeners plant commercial and ornamental species of plants. The Eagle: Is the USDA data for the northeastern United States showing a warming trend? Bretting: We see a consistent shift. Especially in the eastern U.S. of about a half zone warmer than in the prior map. The Eagle: What is behind this change?

Bretting: It’s based on more data from more weather recording stations. And they were processed by a special mathematical formula that takes into account features of the landscape, such as mountains, large bodies of water, urban areas, which cause sometimes heat islands. And it was recorded over a longer period, 30 rather than 15 years. The Eagle: Why is the new zone map such big deal for Vermonters and others? Bretting: Well, there are more than 80 million gardeners in the United States and many of them will use this as a reference as will landscape architects, plant breeders. The USDA Risk Management Agency will use these data for certain crop-insurance parameters. One application is being able to forecast the spread of weeds or insects that might endanger agriculture. The Eagle: Has the accuracy of this kind of climate data changed in 22 years when the last edition of the map was published? Bretting: The precision on the map now is about a half-mile square, which is because of the new computerized technology; it is more precise than prior maps, which were based on sometimes “artistic” renditions of where zones began or ended.

The Champlain Valley area around Middlebury, as well as the area around Rutland, appear as Zone 5a.

Gun is missing in Shoreham robberies

SHOREHAM – Two residences were burglarized on Shacksboro Road in Shoreham Feb. 7. The reported burglaries were at the homes of Sarah J. Paquette, 32, at 2413 Shacksboro Rd. and Jeanne Whitaker, 53, at 2525 Shacksboro Rd. Vermont State Police investigators said the break ins occurred between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.; the residences are next to one another. Both homes were entered by force with no one home at the time. Items taken include a flat screen television, digital cameras, jewelry, watches, blank checks, digital photo frame, and possibly a .22 caliber rifle.

Runners for Middlebury’s Maple Run to break records

Organizers predict 1,000 participants to sign up

MIDDLEBURY – Planning for this year ’s Middlebury Maple Run, the Sweetest Half is underway. Race organizers are planning on a field of approximately 1,000 participants this May 6—800 runners completing the half marathon course and 200 two-person relay teams. This year, the race starts from a new location (in front of Porter Medical Center on South Street), but use the same finish line in front of the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association. Registration has been open since early November and entrants are 50% ahead compared to this time last year. With the Pulp Mill Covered Bridge’s closure, the first two miles of the course have been rerouted. While runners may miss running through one of Vermont’s historic covered bridges, the new route— South Street, left to Main, right to Academy, straight to Weybridge, right to Pulp Mill Bridge—has fewer turns and will allow competitive runners to get up to speed quickly. In addition, there will be fewer road closures in the downtown area. Runners can register online or download and mail a paper entry form. Student registration rates never change: $35 individual/$45 team. Rates for non-students are $45 individual/$65 team. Links to online registration or a downloadable form can be found at the event website at:

This year’s May 6 Middlebury Maple Run marathon has a few new twists and turns. Pictured: 2011 runners leave the starting area, getting ready to turn onto South Street.

Charlotte has mixed feelings about reapportionment plan By Lou Varricchio

CHARLOTTE – Early voter comments indicate that Town of Charlotte residents have mixed feelings about a new proposal to shunt Charlotte from its current Chittenden County Senate District to the Addison County Senate District. “I don’t think Addison County’s senators could easily represent the concerns of Charlotte residents,” according to Mary Ann Theis, a Charlotte voter. “I think this is being done just to help the poor Republicans by breaking up Democratic voters in Chittenden County.” Other Charlotte voters like the reapportionment plan. “The way the senate district is rigged now, urban Chittenden County voters usually cancel out the rural Vermont voters,” said Charlotte resident Tim Scanlon. “That’s why I like this reapportionment plan.” The Vermont Senate’s 2012 redistricting master plan would essentially make Charlotte an annex of Addison County, at least politically. If the plan were ever approved, Charlotte would share Addison County’s two state senators. According to a Senate news release, the draft proposed attempts to institute the minimal number of required changes

to the current Senate districts necessary to bring the districts acceptable deviations. The legislature plans to complete the reapportionment project by April. At present, Addison County’s two state senators, Harold Giard of Bridport and Claire Ayer of Weybridge, were elected by voters residing in Addison, Bridport, Bristol, Cornwall, Ferrisburgh, Goshen, Granville, Hancock, Leicester, Lincoln, Middlebury, Monkton, New Haven, Orwell, Panton, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham, Starksboro, Vergennes, Waltham, Weybridge, and Whiting. In the current Chittenden County district boundaries, six senators serve Charlotte and nearly the entire county. Current Chittenden County state senators are Tim Ashe, Philip Baruth, Sally Fox, Ginny Lyons, Hinda Miller, and Diane Snelling. A public hearing on the Senate reapportionment proposal

will be held at the Vermont State House in Montpelier, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 4:30- 6:30 p.m.

The Eagle - 13 ♦ ATTENTION PET OWNERS ♦ If you are the owner of a cat, dog, horse or some other type of companion animal then we need your help! In April we will be releasing our first “Hooves & Paws Pet Resource Guide” and we are collecting stories from area pet owners about their very special animals. We are hoping that you will take a minute to write to us about how you acquired your special friend and just what this pet means to your life. We even want to know if the story doesn’t have a happy ending because it might help one of our readers to deal with the loss of a very important pet in their lives. We encourage you to send a photo of you and/or your pet to accompany the story. You may mail the story by March 30th to: Addison Eagle Attn: Lou Varricchio 16 Creek Rd., Suite 5A Middlebury, VT 05753 Or email photo and story to ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ Our Guide will also have articles and information from rescues, shelters, humane societies, vets and organizations that take care of house pets as well as horses. If you are a related business and would like to advertise in this piece please give us a call for more information and rates.
