Tick season is off, running

How a politician learned to love alpacas

MIDDLEBURY — As many owners are already finding out, the ticks have woken up for the season. In my practice I have seen an increase in the number of ticks found on dogs and even some cats this year. This is likely due to the relatively mild winter weather and the warmer than normal spring temperatures. Some of the most common questions that I hear regarding ticks are: What is the best way to prevent ticks? What is the best way to remove a tick? If I do find a tick on my pet should I test them for Lyme disease? The best way to protect your pets from ticks and fleas is diligent inspection. It sounds simple but it is true. After a walk or hike in wooded areas or tall grasses inspect your pet for ticks before they have a chance to attach. It is also useful to know that a tick must be attached to the skin for at least 24 hours before it can transmit disease. Therefore, prompt removal is often the best first step in good prevention. There is often confusion about the best way to remove ticks from the skin. With respect to dogs and cats, the best way is to use a tick spoon or twister. These tools work in the same fashion and look much like the claw aspect of a hammer. By placing the tool next to the skin just under the tick’s head it can be safely and properly removed by rocking the tool back and elevating the tick away from the skin. Tweezers can also be used as a substitute making certain to get as close to the skin as possible. Grabbing the tick wholesale and pulling See TICK SEASON, page 13

By Nancy Driscoll MONTPELIER — Vermont Lt. Gov. Phil Scott continued his “Vermont Everyday Jobs” tour last month spending a morning making house calls with Dr. Alison Cornwall, a largeanimal veterinarian working in central Vermont. Their itinerary for the morning’s work included a horse barn in Montpelier, a goat dairy in Cabot, and an alpaca farm in Middlesex. At the Saudek horse farm, Dr. Cornwall had Scott’s assistance in examining, vaccinating, and giving dental exams to a couple of horses. Lt. Gov. Scott also learned how to disbud, or remove horns, from baby goats at their second stop at the Rockwell Farm in Cabot. Their final stop was at the Hall alpaca farm in Middlesex, where Lt. Governor Scott assisted in a few male alpaca castrations. “It was a really interesting experience,” said Scott. “Each ‘Everyday Job’ generates information that I can bring back to Montpelier, and this visit showed me how much our state needs capable large-animal vets like Dr. Cornwall.” According to the Vermont Veterinary Medicine Association, veterinary medicine as a whole employs nearly 1,200 Vermonters. However, the large-animal veterinary industry in particular is facing a current shortage of doctors. Last year, the Vermont Legislature and the governor enacted a loan forgiveness program for large-animal vets, with the hope that See ALPACAS, page 13

Cody the horse: A friend forever By Tori Lathrop newmarketpress@denpubs.com

Cody and Tori ride the bed of the New Haven River in Vermont.

I became sick after I delivered my youngest son in 1978. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease on July 4, 1979. I started spending a lot of time in and out of hospitals for treatments. My first surgery occurred in 1986 and was quickly followed by another in 1987. Several years passed and it felt like I had my life somewhat under control. I had been told by the physicians that I would probably not live to be over 50 so I started a list of things I wanted to accomplish and set out on a mission to succeed crossing items from my list. I guess the modern term is a “bucket list.”

Like every little girl, I had wanted to learn to ride so I started taking lessons at the age of 35. After a year of lessons, I really wanted a horse to call my own. I purchased a western pleasure horse named Leo. He taught me well about patience, persistence, and practice but decided I needed more of a challenge. Now was the task of finding my horse. It just so happened that the owner of the farm had taken in a seven-year-old palomino paint mare. She was definitely in poor condition and ornery but the owner wanted me to take a look at her. I very carefully went into the pasture because I had heard the stories about how she would charge people who went into the See CODY THE HORSE, page 13

K-12 in Vermont A

s reports go, it could have been a lot pricier and harder-to-read, but it was quite enough anyway. That’s the recently-published Picus Report, which was commissioned to reassure the Golden Dome folks in Montpelier that their statewide school property tax,starting with Act 60, and then son-of60, Act 68, was equitable. At 299 pages it cost $300,000, less than half a page and half a buck for every legal citizen (not counting illegal aliens) of the Green Mountain State. Its desired finding: school funding is indeed equitable. No more high-real-estate-wealth “rich towns” easily producing every-studentProficient graduates, while the lowwealth towns, so unfairly, couldn’t afford to bring their own poor kids to more than 30 percent proficiency. Now Vermont sets the Basic Education Per-Pupil annual amount, presently about $8,000, which it collects from all towns and distributes to all school districts, and now so-called gold towns pay in more than they get back while nongold towns do just the reverse. But the Vermont average per-pupil spending isn’t $8,000; it’s closer to $16,000, and the Picus writers duly note that, in the well-chosen words of Rutland Herald headline writers, it’s “not cheap.” They don’t note, duly or otherwise, as Golden Domer Olsen of Jamaica and Guv-wannabe Randy Brock, both Rs, have, that “there’s no evidence to suggest that higher rates of per-pupil spending have resulted in higher levels of student achievement.” Nor does it note the way easier in-state tests—first NSRE, now NECAP, soon perhaps Terra Nova or PAARC, have become part of the never-ending search for “tests” which produce higher scores than the now-despised federal NAEP tests, which explains why, just recently, students 70 percent of whom scored Proficient in reading under NECAP are the same young-folks as those 30-40 percent of whom scored Proficient under NAEP. Most important (non) note, in your Humble Scribe’s opinion: if you accept the historical argument that rich-town

April 28, 2012

kids once made Proficient while poortown kids didn’t, then the Picus Report should have noted the accomplishment of leveling (and, of course “equity”) in achievement just as it duly noted leveling (“equity”) in spending, because now test scores and (non)Proficiency are pretty uniformly distributed across the State. A page on the SED website shows, in the 2009 NECAP test for grade 8 reading, for example, the free-lunch kids scoring at 260 while the paid-lunch kids came in at 277, (out of 500!) so the rich kids were 43 percent proficient while the poor kids were 23 percenr proficient. In both groups, a clear majority didn’t make proficient, are somewhat equally ill-served by the K-12 system in their inability to read at grade level. Since then, the NECAP test has been “improved” and now the kids make, we’re assured, 70 percent proficient. NAEP hasn’t been “improved”; it still shows 30-40 percent non-proficient. In not-too-ancient history, before a long list of modern “improvements” in reading and math instruction, it was very close to 100 percent proficiency, rich and poor. Since the all-our-programs-are-excellent and all-our-kids-are-proficient arguments are hard to make without displaying a sheepish grin, educators are falling back on Plan B: the tests are irrelevant. Here are two quotes, one from management and one from labor. From John Castle, RNESU superintendent, we get “…The measurement system is fundamentally flawed…and our schools are better today than they’ve ever been” and from Randi Weingarten, AFT union boss, we get “…NCLB [testing] was simply a fixation on measurement and sanctions.” Recalling when Ford autos became fixor-repair-daily and the company then refocussed on “Quality is Job One”, the refocus from we’re-excellent-trust-us should be “Reading is Job One.” A while back, the K-12 folks tried RIF (Reading is Fundamental) but dumped it because teaching mere reading is so boring for highly skilled academics capable of much-higher-intellect pedagogy. — Martin Harris

To the dump?

I

’m showered; clean, and shaved up, cept for the stash I’m sporting for a part in a film I shoot this weekend. I’m fit, have a little bit of color from yesterday’s sun, well fed, sharp, smart, coordinated and loaded with rhythm. I’m all set and ready to head out to play an early gig, then after meet up with a gal I’ve been seeing since September, so she can dump me. Yup, I’m pretty sure I’m getting the ole dumpe-roo tonight. Well, now don’t fret for me, I’ve been there plenty before, and as dumpings go, for a handful of reasons this one seems like it’ll offer a very soft landing. So don’t cry for me. I’ll take care of that for you. Not right during the dumping, cause like I said, this one won’t be severe, party because I’m older and have been there before and seem more able to handle dumps both intellectually and emotionally. And partly cause even at the start of the whole thing I felt this wasn’t going to last too, too long. But still, there will be some point when all the mourning of the great times, and romantic and relationship potential I perceived her and I might enjoy, will add up and overflow into what I think will be a rather short burst of pity tears. That’s really what they’ll be, you know? The tears will be pity tears, for losing, for once again failing in the love department. The “oh, why can’t a gal ever like me like they like those other guys” pity tears. Pity tears, the kind that don’t run all the way down your cheek, but instead run down only about an inch from your eyes, then jump off your face out into space in an effort to hide their own embarrassment from your cheeks and chin. Yeah I lost again. Wouldn’t be so bad if the girls, the dumpers, spared me and didn’t admit the guy they like better than me is flying more red flags then a used car sales event; He can be emotionally abusive, and drinks a bit too much, and isn’t motivated, and blah and blah and blah, and they feel sorry for him; that’s the worse one to hear. See, pity, that’s a pity sentence I just wrote. Pity yes, but it’s true, they do say those things, and more. They add, “I don’t know why us girls always go for the ones they feel they can save?” I’ve heard that line more times than a therapist at a prison homecoming. On a lighter note, I’m writing now on the day after the afternoon I wrote about going to get dumped, and I didn’t get dumped. Well, yeah, I had a feeling of foreboding cause a few days before she’d e-mailed me saying she

20940

had a bunch of thoughts she wanted to run by me, and I took that as meaning she was about to send me down the road, and it may have meant that. But last night after the kids were in bed and she and I were eating our creamy tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwiches, it seemed to me it would have been a shame to bring up having a “talk,” as she and I call them, and she didn’t bring it up, so instead we ended up having a very beautiful time with each other, cozy on the couch, purring lovelies to one another. We didn’t address “us” we just let it be. And good thing we did. This gal and I, we get along so very well and have many things in common, among them not liking éclairs, (they’re waxy and the cream most always tastes artificial), and loving the way salamanders skin wrinkles at the bend of their elbows. And we’re both fit, and neither of us drink, and we love our families, (she doesn’t count of course her soon to be X, which I assume till the divorce is final technically is still her family, if that’s true, are she and I adulteresses?), and chocolate, and animals, and clean air. Good we let it be cause we’re adults and we know joyfulness can be rare, and she and I are joyful together, so why not feel the joy, at least a little while longer? Here’s the thing. At some point the divorce is final, and the guy sporting the red flags lives closer (I’m 90 minutes away, he’s in her town) and is 100 percent available, and the joy she and I have been sharing will show itself to be what it might actually be, which is, solely spiritual and physical joy, instead of practical joy. And cause of all that, zzzwing, the dump finally happens. And cause the joy was pro-longed, the tears are much more long lasting, and by god I knew it wouldn’t work in the long run anyway, so why feel bad and suffer through this period unsettledness for a little less then an year of closeness? Why suffer? I’ll tell you why: because I’ve spent many years protecting myself from that kind of suffering, and along with taking up smoking an occasional cigar here at middle age, I’ve decided to branch out and love someone. Feels good. Always will, when I look back. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Bluegrass band headlines VOH

VERGENNES — Snake Mountain Bluegrass will perform at the Vergennes Opera House Saturday April 28, at 8 p.m. This local, Vermont-style bluegrass band featuring banjo, fiddle, mandolin and tight harmony vocals, will be performing a variety of old and new songs along with some originals. The Connor Sisters, three young women from Addison County with a unique blend of sister harmonies, will join the band for a special performance. Middlebury College teacher Gregg Humphrey and Middlebury construction company owner Mike Connor formed Snake Mountain Bluegrass about twenty five years ago. At the time, both Humphrey and Connor were living near Snake Mountain and someone asked them what style of bluegrass they played. Earle Provin was originally brought in to do mandolin tracks for one of their CDs. After witnessing the 16 hours of abuse Earle endured in the studio, Gregg took pity on him and asked him to join the band. Earle is also a graphic artist and did the cover art for each of their most recent CDs. He also plays a resophonic guitar adding a unique sound to the bluegrass treatment of their songs. Randy Kirby joined the group recently to play electric bass, giving a more modern drive to the band’s sound. Veteran Vermont fiddler, Freeman Corey, a long time member of Big Spike Bluegrass Band, will also be playing. They have released two CDs, ‘Bout Time, which features their unique blend of bluegrass music and tight harmony singing, and Under the Radar, where they have included seven original songs. The band uses both a traditional and more modern approach to the bluegrass style, from hard driving “breakdowns” to softer, folktype arrangements.

Draker CEO ‘Business Person of the Year’ SHELBURNE – Vermont-based Draker Laboratories, a provider of turnkey monitoring hardware for commercial and utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, announced that its CEO, Charles ‘Chach’ Curtis, has been selected by the United States Small Business Administration as the 2012 Vermont State Small Business Person of the Year. The selection criteria for the award include leadership and delivery of sustained sales and employment growth, strong financial performance, innovation of products and services, and contributions to community. Curtis has led Draker to over 250 percent annual growth while growing employment at its Vermont location from less than 10 to over 50 today. In notifying Curtis of his selection, the SBA particularly noted his “hard work, innovative ideas, and dedication to community” among the keys to his success. Curtis and his fellow SBA award recipients from around the country will be recognized during National Small Business Week in May in Washington, D.C. Curtis will be locally honored by the U.S. SBA on June 14 in Shelburne.

Bristol student on CSI project BRISTOL — Bristol resident Georgia Winters will be one of 50 students from Stonehill College working with faculty members at the college this summer on research projects through the Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program. SURE provides students with an opportunity to perform significant, publishable research under the guidance of an experienced faculty researcher. Winters, a junior psychology and criminology major at Stonehill, will work with Bonnie Klentz, professor of psychology featured on television’s “The CSI Effect: The Jury is Still Out.”

YOUNG ARTIST – Congratulation to Veronic Huber of New Haven. The young artist, a student at Rice Memorial High School in Burlington, displayed her still-life drawing for the New Hampshire Art Institute as part of a competition. Huber has been praised for her talent and is considering a career in the arts.

Vermont represented at U.N. meeting From Staff & News Reports newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY — Vermont was well represented at United Nations meeting on changing economic paradigm. Last week, the U.N. held a meeting on “Happiness and Wellbeing: Defining a New Economic Paradigm” hosted by the prime minister of Bhutan. The U.N. has assigned Bhutan, a tiny Himalayan nation the task of boldly initiating steps towards realizing a vision, for this and future generations, which recognizes our interdependence with nature and each other. Participants in this meeting included eight of the nine volunteer board of directors of Vermont-based non-profit organization Gross National Happiness USA (GNHUSA.org). Co-founders and coordinators, Linda Wheatley and Tom Barefoot, were joined by Paula Francis, Dan Jones, Carrie McDougall, Azur Moulaert, Marianne Ward and Eric Zencey, as well as 650 other participants from around the world. Notable attendees included Nobel Prize winning scientists, economists and activists, as well as ambassadors, presidents and prime ministers, academic experts, religious leaders and even a beamed in message from Prince Charles. There was wide agreement that the countries of the world need to research and develop better indicators of progress so that we measure what really matters: our sustainable well-being rather than just economic costs and benefits. Meeting organizers are crafting a formal set of principles before the U.N. Rio Plus 20 conference on Sustainable Development to be held in June

GNHUSA Board of Directors at the U.N. with the Prime Minister of Bhutan: Tom Barefoot, Paula Francis, Carrie McDougall, Marianne Ward, Bhutan Prime Minister Jigmi Y. Thinley, Linda Wheatley, Azur Moulaert, Eric Zencey, Dan Jones. and for the next session of the U.N. General Assembly in 2013. The draft statement, developed during the two workdays following the conference, begins with these two paragraphs: “A fundamental human goal is the deep abiding wellbeing and happiness that comes from living life in full, in harmony with our communities and fellow beings and the natural world. Realizing this vision requires a healthy balance between all parts of our national and global wealth including our natural, human, economic, social, and cultural wealth. "This balance is absent from our present system, which prioritizes economic growth at the expense of nature and people. The current paradigm now threatens the survival of humans and other species, and is no longer an op-

tion. We need a fundamental transition to a new economic paradigm that serves human happiness and the wellbeing of all life on Earth.” Vermont-based GNHUSA was invited to participate because it has been an early advocate of such changes, hosted an international conference on Gross National Happiness in Burlington in 2010 and is engaged in several current projects. These include working with Vermont organizations, businesses, towns and state government to build well-being metrics into future policy decisions; a May 30th, 2012 GNHUSA conference on using the new well-being measures, a 2013 week-long “chautauqua,” and a Pursuit of Happiness Walk from Vermont to the District of Columbia this August to generate conversation on what makes life worth living.

MIDDLEBURY— After 31 years of service to Addison County, Sheriff James B. Coons lost his battle to illness Monday, April 16 at his home in Middlebury. Coons has been succeeded by Donald Keeler, Jr., Addison County High Bailiff, of Middlebury. Keeler was sworn in at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 17. Keeler has been a Deputy Sheriff in the county since 1972 and was a long time friend and colleague of Coons. He said Coons was a

popular and innovative sheriff and he hopes to continue to carry on the office as he did. “As Sheriff I will attempt to try and continue the forward thinking Jim was always moving toward, he was always looking to try new things,” Keeler said. Coons served as sheriff and continued his duties through his illness and up until the day he passed, Keeler said. After graduation from Champlain College in Burlington, Coons began his career in law enforcement with the Middlebury Police in 1972, rising to the rank of

detective lieutenant. In 1980, he successfully ran for Sheriff, following in the footsteps of his father, Morton. Coons is survived by his wife, Julia, and their two sons. Keeler has been a deputy at the Addison County Sheriff ’s Department for 40 years. Funeral arrangements were incomplete as of Tuesday, April 17. The Vermont State Sheriff ’s Department will make arrangements for a memorial service to honor the former sheriff at a later date.

Bristol’s ‘Almost Home Market’ under new ownership BRISTOL — The Addison County Chamber of Commerce announced a change in ownership of Almost Home Market in Bristol. The new owners are Beth Marr and Gary Smith, residents of Vergennes and Bristol, respectively. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held recently to celebrate Almost Home’s new ownership. Smith, a long-time Bristol resident, is a chef, gardener and wine buyer. Marr is a southern transplant, now living in Vergennes, and brings 20 plus years of wedding planning and conference sales experience. The pair have worked in the hospitality arena for more than 20 years and both are in love with great food. “We promise to bring a level of friendly service to the area that is unsurpassed. We want our customers to feel at home when they walk into our doors and to stop in often—even for just a coffee,” said Marr. The new owners believe that successful businesses are built one customer at a time

and they promise to provide the freshest, most interesting local foods, fresh baked pastries, gifts for the home chef and hand selected wines and beer. The pair will be using local ingredients including items from their kitchen garden.They will also be adding new items such as hand cut steaks, chicken, fish and artisanal cheeses and smoked/cured meats. According to Marr, “the mission of Almost Home Market is to offer the best that we can for the best price possible. And, even better, we are now open on Sunday.” Prior to purchasing Almost Home Market, Marr worked at Basin Harbor Club as the wedding and events coordinator, and Smith worked at Sysco Food Service as a sales representative. Almost Home Market has been in business for nine years. The previous owners, Linda Hanson and Beth Newman-Place, are planning to spend their time traveling and gardening. With the

Business, labor groups say ‘no’ to Vt. Yankee tax By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MONTPELIER — At a news conference recently at the Vermont State House, business and labor groups called upon the Vermont Senate to reject a new tax increase recently passed by the Vermont House on Vermont Yankee. “This is not the time and this is not the economy in which to increase taxes on businesses, especially solely targeting one Vermont employer,” said William Driscoll, Vice President of Associated Industries of Vermont. “Vermont’s economy and business reputation are struggling in many ways. This tax sets a bad precedent, one that other businesses will have a very watchful eye on,” said Driscoll. Recently, the Vermont House approved a 120 percent annual tax increase on Vermont Yankee, from approximately $5 million to

$11 million. The roughly $6 million annual increase to Vermont Yankee’s taxes is intended to assist Windham County to deal with post-Vermont Yankee issues, continue the Clean Energy Development Fund, and supplement the statewide education fund. “This proposed tax increase is ill-advised for several reasons,” said Guy Page, communications director of the Vermont Energy Partnership. “It is an arbitrary tax increase. It may even be punitive in nature. It was passed with too-little debate or discussion and violates the letter and spirit of longstanding tax accords. This sends out a very troubling signal about doing business in Vermont,” said Page. George Clain of the IBEW Local 300 said, “A 2010 analysis by the Joint Fiscal Office showed that Vermont will benefit most, from a fiscal, jobs, and economic standpoint, if Vermont Yankee continues to operate. This job preservation and job creating course is the path the legislature should be supporting instead and immediately.”

Middlebury Opera Company to present ‘Thaïs’ this year MIDDLEBURY — The Opera Company of Middlebury opens its 9th season with five performances ThaïsThais” by Jules Massenet, June 8-16, at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater. For the first time a second production has been added to the OCM season, a semi-staged concert performance of Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini, scheduled for Oct. 19 and 21. The rarely performed “Thaïs” is a study of the struggle between the sacred and the profane, as the title character finds her way from decadence to a new-found belief. The score is

lush and vibrant, typical of Massenet’s late-romantic style, and includes the haunting orchestral piece, “Meditation.” The season kicks off with the popular “Meet the Singers” reception and recital at the Middlebury Inn Sunday, May 27, 5 p.m. Each of the cast members of Thaïs will sing a favorite song or aria. Tickets are $25. “Thaïs” will be conducted by Emmanuel Plasson and directed by Douglas Anderson. The exciting company of professional singers includes Melissa Shippen as Thais, Joshua Jeremiah as Athanaël, and James Flora as Nicias. Guest artists Coleen Daly, John Maynard and Andrew Spady will assume the roles for the June 15 performance.

Report: better state budgeting needed

Tom Brassard

Brassard joins CVAA board

MIDDLEBURY — Tom Brassard Owner and President of Paw Print & Mail and Catamount Marketing joins the Champlain Valley Association for the Aging CVAA Board of Directors. Brassard is a native of Burlington, attending Rice Memorial High School and the University of Vermont earning a B.S. in business administration. In 1990 Brassard started Paw Print & Mail, a full-service printing and business mailing company, and in 2010 founded Catamount Marketing, an inbound marketing company. He serves on the board as vice chairman for the Burlington Business Association. Brassard is a longtime supporter of CVAA. He was a major supporter of CVAA's Driving Force Event previously held each February in Quebec featuring go kart racers that raced to end senior hunger.

MONTPELIER — Vermont needs a better budgeting process, one that starts with a goal of meeting Vermonters’ needs rather than making the numbers work. That’s the conclusion of a new report that raises questions about the “manage-to-the-money” approach to budgeting that Vermont has been following for nearly two decades. “The state budget should be spending Vermonters’ money for their wellbeing,” said Paul Cillo, president of the nonpartisan, Vermont-based Public Asset Institute. “Can we honestly say Vermont is meeting its commitment to residents when more than 70,000 people are living below the poverty level?” “Vermont’s budgeting process has gotten turned upside down,” Cillo added. “The state doesn’t start with an estimate of what it would cost to meet Vermonters’ fundamental needs. Instead the process starts with a revenue estimate—how much money the state expects to collect in the coming year— and then adjusts the services and functions of state government to match those anticipated funds. This approach makes it virtual-

ly certain that fundamental needs will not be met.” According to the report, Vermonters can’t tell whether the budget passed by the Vermont House last month is too big, too small, or about right because there is no published estimate of what it should cost to carry out all of the functions state government is currently obliged to perform. The report recommends that Vermont prepare a current services budget each year that provides such estimates so citizens can know whether budgets are adequate or not. But even before that, the report says, Vermont needs to make clear what it intends to accomplish with the budget. The new report, “2013 Budget: Is it Adequate?” by Public Assets’ Senior Analyst Jack Hoffman, describes Vermont’s “manage-to-the-money” approach to budgeting. “This approach focuses on revenue and forces state government to cut back on services regardless of need,” said Hoffman. “It has led to budget cuts just when Vermonters need those services most—like during the

Middlebury hotel wins national honors MIDDLEBURY — Butson Hotel Management and the Courtyard by Marriott in Middlebury announced that they rank in the top 2 percent overall of all Courtyards by Marriott in Guest Satisfaction. “Marriott’s Guest Satisfaction Survey are Marriott International’s way of evaluating a property’s overall customer satisfaction within their brand. Our staff takes great pride in our property and our relationships with our guests and to be ranked fifth out of 825 Courtyard properties worldwide is a fantastic accomplishment and testament to our staff,” said Rusty Harding, general manager in Middlebury. The Courtyard by Marriott Middlebury has attained many awards from silver through platinum with Marriott International and many of their staff has been with the company since the first year of business in 2004. With room renovations completed in January, the Courtyard Marriott Middlebury offers a refreshing new stay. Lobby and café renovations are scheduled to be completed in early 2013.

Boomers stand to inherit trillions

Great Recession.” If Vermont recognized that the purpose of the budget is to meet Vermonters’ needs, it would be doing more when times were tough and pulling back when the economy improved and the private sector was stronger, according to the report. In other words, it would do the opposite of managing to the money, the report notes. “The state should make a realistic assessment of Vermonters’ fundamental needs before it creates a budget,” Cillo said. “But even before that, there should be agreement on our goals for the state: What do we want to achieve with our $5 billion annual expenditure?” The report recommends a more publicly accessible budget process, clear goals, and accountability for outcomes like those that used to be published annually in the Vermont Well-Being Report, last published in 2006. The Vermont Senate is currently considering the fiscal 2013 budget that was passed by the House late last month.

“Women already control 60 percent of the nation’s personal wealth – they outnumber men and they are traditionally the shoppers,” according to financial expert Scott T. Schultz. “It’s sad that, despite the fact that nearly a third make more money than their husbands and they’re starting businesses at twice the rate men are, 38 percent of women ages 30 to 55 worry they’ll eventually live in poverty because they can’t adequately save for retirement,” he said. With the first of the boomers hitting 65 this year, the nation will see an even greater number of retirement-aged women holding the country’s purse strings. “Many will inherit money and property from their parents and/or their husbands, and many will live another 30 to 40 years,” Schultz said, citing the Cornell study. “They’ll need to invest their money to ensure they have enough to avoid that impoverished retirement they fear, but they — and the nation – have lost confidence in the stock market; April 2011 saw the lowest number of investors since 1999.”

Baby boomers stand to inherit $10 trillion in the next few years and women will get the bulk of it, according to a Cornell University study, because they outlive men an average of seven years.

Vermont volunteers turn out for Cancer Society MIDDLEBURY — In celebration of the Annual National Volunteer Week, the American Cancer Society recognized and celebrated the efforts of its more than three million volunteers nationwide who have helped make a difference for people facing cancer since 1913. In Vermont, thousands of volunteers give their time and talent to fight back against the disease, including Marybeth Mooney, the Vermont Daffodil Days volunteer coordinator who is determined to help end cancer during her lifetime. “I volunteer for the American Cancer Society here because cancer touches everyone in some way,” said Mooney, who has served the society for 13 years. “To be part of an organization that has been helping people facing cancer since 1913 is an amazing experience, and I will remain a volunteer for years to come.” The Points of Light Foundation and Volunteer Center National Network sponsor

the annual National Volunteer Week, which began in 1974 with an executive order by President Nixon. “Volunteers are the foundation of the American Cancer Society,” said Hilary Casillas, vice president of Income Development with the American Cancer Society. “Volunteers have been crucially important in enabling the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer since we were founded in 1913. As we celebrate this week, I want to thank each of our volunteers in Vermont for dedicating their time and energy to our cancer-fighting mission.” Vermonters contribute to helping people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back against cancer through a variety of roles, efforts and American Cancer Society programs, including: To learn more about how you can saves lives while fulfilling your own through volunteering, visit our Web site, www.cancer.org/volunteer.

Another stealth tax increase

Legislators face a real challenge: How can they raise more money from hard pressed Vermonters without voting for a tax increase? If they vote for an outright tax increase, voters don’t like it. If they reduce spending, they will risk facing primary opponents from even further to the left. The magic solution is found in the legislature’s annual Tax Expenditure Report. The term “tax expenditure” describes the difference between the potential and actual sum raised by a particular tax. Some popular income tax deductions and exclusions are property taxes paid, charitable contributions made, health care premiums paid for employees by employers, inter-

est received on state or federal bonds, and interest paid on home mortgages. Together these make up about three fourths of all tax deductions and exclusions. Interestingly, the Vermont legislature is tough on some classes of taxpayers. If a town exempted a Logging Museum from its municipal property tax, the legislature requires that property remain in the tax base used to calculate school taxes the town’s taxpayers are required to remit to Montpelier. Recently the state for the first time began to supply to towns solid current information on the value of all state owned parcels, such as boat launch sites, VTrans salt sheds, and state buildings, parks, and wildlife management areas. Towns receive some payment in lieu of tax (PILOT) from the State based on those valuations. In Act 75 of 2005 the legislature mandated that each Jan. 15 the administration must present a comprehensive snapshot of tax ex-

penditures, covering the full range and amount of tax expenditures under state tax laws. The 2008 report contains 230 pages, covering corporate and personal income taxes, sales and use tax, meals and room tax, and property tax. By 2010, the political left had discovered its magic solution: that cutting back tax expenditures were a way to raise revenue without running the risks of voting for higher tax rates. In that year ’s Miscellaneous Tax Bill the legislature requested a targeted study of which federal income tax deductions and exemptions Vermont could reduce or eliminate in order to raise more money. That coincidentally meshed with a study by the Congressional Budget Office of the cost of hundreds of “minor” exemptions (that is, not the popular ones listed above). Many of the tax expenditures now apparently flagged for extinction primarily bene-

fit small businesses, such as accelerated depreciation for capital improvements and lower tax rates for long-term capital gains. The honest method of simplifying taxes requires a two-step process. First, the legislature reduces selected tax expenditures.That increases revenues. Then the legislature adjusts the tax rate schedule downwards to reduce revenues by approximately the same amount. This is revenue neutral. The current legislative game is, however, to quietly eliminate various income tax deductions without making the revenue-neutral tax rate adjustments. This results in a stealth tax increase, at least until taxpayers reorganize their affairs, or move away. So keep alert, or you will likely have some ugly surprises by the time your 2012 Turbo Tax ships next fall. Bruce Shields is president of the Ethan Allen Institute (www.ethanallen.org).

pasture to either feed or get her and they would end up running back to the fence for safety. Cody locked eyes with me as I walked gingerly towards her. My heart was racing and my body was tense. As I got closer she seemed to understand my trepidation and ever so slowly came to me and placed her head on my shoulder. That did it. From that day on Cody was my horse. Cody has now been with me for nearly 15 years. I have had many more surgeries and hospitalizations since and through it all Cody is there for me. I can go to her crying or needing someone to listen and she understands. On the bad days we saddle up and take a ride that leaves us breathless and in awe. I had to retire early from working due to my health. I was wondering what I was going to do to fill the gap in my life. Cody lovingly kept me busy. I now have a farm with 11 horses and am still enjoying life. The “bucket list” isn’t important to me now. I found my purpose. She came into my life during one of my darkest moments and has lighted a path for me to follow. I believe without her I would not be sitting here writing this story. She has been my companion,

more young Vermonters would study veterinary medicine and help fill this need. “With more Vermonters choosing to raise their own animals for meat and produce, having regular and timely access to veterinary services will be essential to protecting the safety of our food supply,” said Lt. Gov. Scott. “It’s an important investment.” “I’m really grateful that Lt. Gov. Scott took the time to make these calls with me today and to experience what’s happening in Vermont agriculture,” said Dr. Cornwall. “I was also surprised at how hands-on he is. In addition to talking about policy issues, Lt. Gov Scott was also able to repair the igniter on my butane burner, which unexpectedly quit on me as we were disbudding the baby goats. All in all, I truly appreciate having him along.”

it off will often leaving portions of the tick head / mouth parts still in the skin. These can be irritating and problematic for the pet. Owners frequently ask me, when they have found an attached tick, if they should be worried about Lyme disease and should the pet be tested. The answer is yes they should. However, the disease can take weeks to show evidence in the body and therefore I advise owners to wait and monitor their pets. Then we can test

for Lyme disease in three to four weeks. Fleas can actually be more problematic to deal with than ticks. The reason being; that the majority of the flea life cycle takes place off of the pet. Although a pet may not be “crawling” with fleas they can still be causing a problem in the pet’s environment as they can live in a house for up to ten months. As a result I always advise owners to use flea and tick preventatives every month throughout the year. This includes the winter months. Admittedly, ticks are not active in the coldest months of the year in New England.

Champlain faculty honored BURLINGTON – A new guidebook released last week recognizes Champlain College for having six of the country's best undergraduate teachers. The affirmation of quality teaching comes from The Princeton Review and its new book, "The Best 300 Professors." According to the book's editors, professors were chosen based on qualitative and quantitative data from survey findings and

However, animals that go to dog parks, boarding or day care facilities are at greater risk. Fleas can also attach to our clothes and be brought to the home. So it makes good sense to keep our pets on preventatives year round. Your veterinarian is the best source of information regarding which preventatives will work best for your pets based on their size, breed, geographic location and pertinent medical considerations. Dr. Liam Bisson owns and operates the Shelburne Veterinary Hospital in Shelburne, Vermont.

ratings collected by both The Princeton Review and RateMyProfessors.com. “We developed this project as a tribute to the extraordinary dedication of America's undergraduate college professors and the vitally important role they play in our culture, and our democracy,” said Robert Franek, publisher of Princeton Review. Champlain professors featured in the new Princeton Review Book are J.C. Ellefson, Jonathan Rajewski, John P. Rogate, Eric Ronis, Alan Stracke, and Janice Gohm Webster.
