Firefi ghters extinguish brushfi re in Middlebury By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY —  A  fast-moving  brushfi re  April  22  along  Halladay  Road  in  Middlebury  required  two  fi re  engines  and  a  special  brush  truck,  along  with  a  team of fi refi ghters, from the Middlebury  Fire Department. After  approximately  15  minutes  of  work,  the  suspiciously  set  blaze  was  extinguished. The fi eld fi re occurred around  2:10  p.m.  and  was  spotted  by  Holly  Hathaway, a resident of Halladay Road. “The  blaze  looked  suspicious  to  me,”  Hathaway  said,  “with  at  least  eight  or  nine  little  fi res  set  along  the  hillside  on  the east side of the road.”  The  fi res  broke  out  just  south  of  the  town  sewer-line  cistern  and  quickly  spread into Hathaway’s pony pasture.  Hathaway said she no longer pastures  horses in the fi eld.  “My plan is to brush hog the fi eld, remove a wooden shed and old barbed wire  fencing, and plant a row of sunfl owers,”  Hathaway  said.  “So,  I  was  pretty  nervous about this blaze since every thing is  so dry. Looks like this fi re got a jump on  some of my work.” Hathaway  said  she  last  burned  brush  nearby on April 21, the last day residents  were permitted to legally burn twigs and  CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Smith,  Amirault  and  Ismail  will  perform  as  the  Standard  Poodle Dance Collective. Amirault,  an  accomplished  dancer  in  her  own  right,  has  been  seen  elsewhere  without  Smith.  Amirault’s  Kidz  dance  group has been a seed bed for  young  dancers  in  Vermont.  And Kidz has been a staple of   Burlington’s First Night event  for several years now.

MIDDLEBURY — Before  I  saw  talented,  expressive  Vermont  dancer  Patty  Smith  perform  in  2010,  the  art  of  dance never crossed my radar screen  much. So, when I heard Smith  was going to perform at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater, I  was  happy  to  receive  a  sneak  peek  at  the  event  which  is  scheduled for May 8. Smith,  respected  for  her  award-winning  art  as  well  as  for her choreographic instruction for children, received her  early and classic training with  Jan Veen of the Boston Conservatory  of  Music’s  Dance  Department. She was also a pupil  of Mary Wigman, the celebrated  inheritor  of  the  German 

modern  dance  scene.  Smith  is  well  known  in  New York  and  San Francisco circles as well.  Along with Patty Smith will  be  her  rising  student  dancers  Karen  Amirault  and  Shelly  Ismail. Once again, Town Hall  Theater  will  present  Addison County residents with the  best  offerings  in  the  northern  New England performing arts  scene.  The  Town  Hall  Theater’s  own publicity about Smith describe her as “the elder stateswoman  of  the  Vermont  dance  scene”. Of course May 8 won’t  be Smith’s first appearance on  the Middlebury stage. She has  performed  at  Town  Hall  Theater  as  a  solo  and  seen  with  her  various  students  around  Addison County  and  Rutland  County.   On  Wednesday,  May  8,

From the Editor

Life, money, Kung Fu journalism

A

s a journalist, it’s especially nice to hear from readers who have something nice to say  about something I wrote  in the newspaper. It’s rare, but when it happens it makes “one  of the worst 10 jobs in America” seem worthwhile. (I’ll explain about that shortly.) In the past week, I received two positive comments about an editorial I wrote in this paper about  the infamous Year Without a Summer, 1816. That’s not bad, considering the known fact of the tip  of the iceberg; that is, if two people have nice things to say, there are many, many more who aren’t  as forthcoming.  But  overall,  as  a  battle-hardened  community  newspaperman—and  I  can  speak  only  of  myself  and my work—it’s one job where complaints and self-appointed news experts are common place.  Editors and journalists, who regularly stick their necks out in public, need big shoulders. They  need  an  almost  mystical  sense  of  purpose—a  Kwai  Chang  Caine  “Kung  Fu”  inner  toughness,  a  pinch of mindfulness and resourcefulness, and a big dollop of professional confidence.  Sure mistakes  happen—far too often, perhaps; but then it’s all par for the course of being in an  all too human profession where the public demand for journalistic purity, even divinity, looms far  larger than any gesture of forgiveness for errors.  Recently, Business Insider.com reported that the job of newspaper reporter is among the 10 worst  jobs in America. Also included in the worst list was broadcaster (T.V. and radio), waitress/waiter,  butcher, meter reader, dairy farmer, lumberjack, soldier, dishwasher.  According  to  Business  Insider,  “Reporters  work  long  hours  with  high  levels  of  stress  to  meet  deadline. Their career prospects are shrinking as media companies consolidate. And for working  longer hours than a business executive, you’ll get paid $35,275.”  And what of the 10 best jobs in America, according to Business Insider?  Here goes: mathematician, computer system analyst, online advertising manager, occupational  therapist,  audiologist,  financial  planner,  dental  hygienist,  corporate  H.R.  manager,  actuary,  and  software engineer. I certainly won’t dispute Business Insider’s findings about being a news reporter. It, like most  jobs, involves a lot of work, skill, and time. But I am not overly impressed by the 10 best jobs; none  of them appeal to me, personally, in the least. Over the years, I have never gone out of my way to inspire a young person to pursue the newspaper profession, unless, of course, they demonstrate the old-fashioned American work ethic, a firein-the-belly for news gathering, writing, snooping, have the physical strength, have the intellectual  stamina, and are smart at managing daily life (and future retirement planning) on the profession’s  few financial rewards. However, I must add that I work for an award-winning newspaper organization and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Another positive for me: Newspaper reporters, despite the obvious restrictions, can still find a lot  of creative expression and there’s a good deal of job freedom if you have self discipline to get the job  done—I would think there’s a lot more in this job than in most of the 10 best jobs mentioned above.  Oh,  and  regarding  Business  Insider’s  preoccupation  with  on-the-job  stress—tell  me,  what  job  doesn’t have stress? From Wal-Mart to the White House, stress is part of work life in these United  States. Honestly, for all the leather-upholstered luxury cars or hurricane-prone beach homes in Florida,  you couldn’t pack my career flight bag with enough golden parachutes to ever want to be a CEO,  CFO or IT manager. I sleep pretty well at night, thank you very much. Sure, sometimes I bring the  job home, but not too often. That’s something I promised myself and my wife.  So, in many ways the freedom and sense of discovery, plus meeting all kinds of people in the  community, that a newspaper job provides is a kind of career perk.  Plus, counting complimentary concerts I’ve attended, famous people I’ve encountered, a flight in  an historic B-17 bomber, an upclose look at the rollout of a new NASA rocket, and other adventures  near-and-far too numerous to mention, I can’t complain too much. In the end, happiness will never be found on the job. It also can’t be found in the endless accumulation of things or in the pursuit of existential sensations.  There are greater things—good health, family, friends, a loving pet, soul-satisfying hobbies, community service, and spiritual/religious pursuits—which define who we are inside. It’s what true  success means to me.  Lou Varricchio

Truck crashes on Route 4 By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MENDON — On April 26, at approximately 11:35 a.m., Vermont State Police responded to a vehicle crash near 1591 U.S.  Route 4 in Mendon.  A VSP report stated that Bruce Lasante, 75, of Mendon was  operating a pickup truck eastbound on Route 4, when it veered  off  the  eastbound  road  edge  and  into  a  highway  runoff  ditch  before crashing into a Green Mountain Power utility pole.  Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the crash, according  to the report.  The Rutland City Fire Department and Rutland  Regional Ambulance Service assisted at the crash scene. Green  Mountain  Power  replaced  the  broken  utility  pole.  Lasante’s  truck was towed away.

The site of the grass fire, just west of U.S. Route 7, was along  a small dry glen with an unnamed, intermittent brook; the place  is in the right-of-way of the proposed Vermont Railway-Omya  quarry rail spur project which is now on hold. It is not known if the fire was intentionally set or if a cigarette  was tossed out by a passing motorist. Steven Holmes, a northeastern fire warden and veteran firefighter,  said  the  recent  warm  weather  and  dry  conditions  in  both New England and the Mid-Atlantic regions have triggered  numerous brush fires. “Humans are most often the cause of these brush fires,” Holmes said in a national news report April 21.

VERGENNES — The  Vergennes  Lions  Club has made several donations to area organizations in recent weeks.  The club raises  approximately $30,000 in funds throughout  the  year  via  raffles,  an  auction,  food  sales,  etc.  to  help  fund  local  organizations  that  provide services to area families. The  Addison  County  young  readers  group  received  a  donation  of  $250,  with  Margo Grace present to explain the program  and  the  efforts  made  to  get  books  into  the  hands of all Addison County children under  the age of 5. The program is a part of Dolly  Parton’s Imagination Library with an annual cost of about $30 per child.  Their goal is  85 percent, but they were only at 38  percent  in 2012.  More help is needed to be sure the  goal is met. The club recently presented a check to the  Addison County Special Olympics program  in the amount of $750 to assist students from  the Vergennes-Bristol area. Jim Wacker, program  director,  was  present  to  receive  the  check.

Steve  Pouliot,  from  the  Vermont  Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired,  recently  spoke  to  the  club  about  their  program and the numbers of citizens in the area  served by their association.  President Kitty  Oxholm presented a check for $500 to assist  their efforts. President Kitty Oxholm presented a check  for  $1,000  to  Bixby  Library  Director  Jane  Spencer.  Spencer  thanked  the  club  for  their  continued  support.  She  mentioned  that  a  number  of  Vergennes  Lions  serve  of  the  library  board  of  directors,  and  that  other  Lions help the library in other ways.  At an April 17 club meeting, Robert Thorn,  from  Addison  County  Counseling  Service,  spoke  about  the  numerous  programs  that  his  agency  is  involved  with  and  how  all  of  the county  schools have school  based  clinicians  working  with  students.    Following  Thorn’s talk, Oxholm presented him with a  check for $300. The club started selling tickets for an annual car raffle, and are making plans for Memorial Day to earn more funds for the communities served.  Tickets are available from  any Vergennes Lions member.

Relief for property owners? By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com A BUCK A LIKE — Over the last three years, Woodchuck Hard Cider of Middlebury has planted more than 34,000 trees in areas devastated by natural disaster across the country. Woodchuck will again plant one tree through the American Forests Global ReLeaf program for every new Facebook ‘like’ or e-newsletter sign up. In addition, Woodchuck officials said they will give $1 per ‘Like’ and e-newsletter sign up to the Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association. File photo

MONTPELIER — The  unending  rising  cost  of  education  in  Vermont,  versus  declining  enrollments,  was  addressed  by  the  State House this week. Legislators  approved  a  bill  April  24,  110-24,  that  would—at  least preliminarily—help reduce the never ending upward spiral  of education spending. A final vote is expected soon. The idea is  to provide some tax property relief for homeowners living in the  state.  Several  weeks  ago,  legislators  advanced  and  approved  a  state property tax rate increase of 5 cents.  The 5-cent increase, according to House reports, was to fund  the total $70 million increase in state school budgets.

He  will  focus  on  the  progress  on  ending  the  war  in Afghanistan, the crisis in Syria and its impact on the region,  including  the  related  refugee  crisis,  as  well  as  the  use  of  U.S.  drones in the region. Details of the trip are being withheld.

Modified Championship up for grabs at Devil’s Bowl By Justin St. Louis

WEST HAVEN — The race for the Bond Auto  Parts Modified stock car championship at Devil’s Bowl Speedway will be tighter than ever as  the season opens on Sunday, May 5, at the 101.5  “The Fox” Spring Green event.   The  field  of  ground-pounding,  open-wheel  NASCAR  Whelen  All-American  Series  machines has expanded in 2013 and includes nearly a dozen drivers with a shot at the crown. Though  veteran  Ron  Proctor  has  won  the  championship  in  each  of  the  last  two  seasons,  the Charlton, NY driver knows that his No. 27  Timco  Transportation/Charlton  Oil  machine  is in the crosshairs in 2013.  Proctor’s toughest  challenger  in  2012,  Brandon’s  Vince  Quenneville  will  debut  new  sponsorship  from  Green  Mountain Feeds and Black Diamond Builders at  the Spring Green, giving him extra motivation  to  be  up  front,  but  Quenneville,  too,  will  have  his work cut out for him. A  talented  group  of  young  racers  is  primed  and ready for 2013, each driver capable of col-

lecting  his  first  championship.    Alex  Bell  of  Cambridge,  NY,  Hunter  Bates  of  Middlebury,  and  Olmstedville,  N.Y.’s  Jessey  Mueller,  combined for seven main event victories a year ago.   Rookie  of  the  Year,  Vermonter  Joey  Roberts,  will  try  to  one-up  an  outstanding  season  that  saw him collect 12 top-five finishes and a main  event win.   Thirty-five  year  racing  veteran  Leon  Gonyo  of  Chazy  returns  after  a  winning  campaign,  and  long-time  Middlebury,  VT  favorite  Todd  Stone  will  return  to  Devil’s  Bowl  Speedway.   Stone,  who  won  the  2008  Devil’s  Bowl  Speedway  championship  in  the  track’s  dirt-surface  era,  won  the  100-lap  Modified  portion  of  the  Vermont 200 Weekend at Devil’s Bowl last September. The Bond Auto Parts Modifieds are part of a  weekend celebration of stock car racing in Rutland County, as Merchants Row in Rutland City  hosts  the  second  annual  “Devil’s  Bowl  Downtown Fan Festival” on Saturday, May 4 from 9  a.m. to noon.

With snow gone, it’s time for some spring lawn care Dr. Leonard Perry, Extension Professor University of Vermont

Your lawn has just survived another long winter. In order to restore it to its former green glory, it will need to be raked, renovated, repaired, fertilized, and then mowed properly. First, if starting a new lawn, make sure there is good drainage. You cannot grow grass in standing water. Drainage may consist of ditches or, if underground, drainage pipe or tiles. Then rough grade the area. Add six inches of topsoil, if needed, for new lawns and depressions in established ones. A normal, well-drained soil may be adequate if fertilized appropriately. If not a fertile or welldrained soil, add organic matter. Figure on three bales of peat moss per 1,000 square feet, or the equivalent of other product such as compost. Then mix it thoroughly into the top six inches of soil. If poorly drained, you may need to add sand or even bury perforated plastic drain pipes. You may need to add limestone if the soil acidity or pH is below 6.0. To find out, you can do a soil test either with inexpensive kits from garden stores, or a more in-depth test from your state university. Kits for the latter are available at many garden outlets, and Extension offices. These university results are much more accurate than the home kits, and give you results on various fertility needs as well as recommendations. Soil testing can save you money by not applying fertilizer that’s not needed, which in turn can help prevent any runoff pollution. Prepare a smooth seedbed free of stones, hollows, and ridges for new lawns. Raking off the old leaves, sticks, and other winter debris gives your existing lawn a chance to breathe, as well as makes it easier to repair and reseed worn or dead spots (or those areas scraped by winter snow plowing). Broadcast a complete fertilizer, or one of the commercially mixed fertilizers specific to lawns. Use enough to supply two

pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.  This translates,  for example, to 10 pounds of 20-0-12 (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) or 20 pounds of 10-0-10.  Or use 15 to 20 pounds of the  organic  6-0-6.    Since  phosphorus  (the  middle  number)  is  often  present in sufficient amounts, and restricted for lawn application  in some areas due to water pollution concerns, many lawn fertilizers no longer contain it.   Uniform fertilizer application at the proper rate is essential for  good end results.  If you are using a spreader, follow the setting  on the fertilizer bag or ask your lawn and garden dealer for the  proper setting.  If you are reseeding or sodding the lawn, the earlier you do it  in the spring the better.  Remember to prepare the seedbed well,  and water the lawn thoroughly.  A less frequent, heavy soaking  of the lawn is better than frequent, light watering, but don’t let  the germinating seeds dry out initially.  When reseeding, choose the right mix for your growing conditions.  Zoysia, for example, is not a good choice for northern  New England as it will turn brown in cool weather.  A common  good mix may have Kentucky bluegrass, a fine fescue such as red  fescue, and a perennial ryegrass.  The latter grows quickly, so is  good to overseed worn areas or to use in areas with lots of wear,  as are the newer tall fescues.  Kentucky bluegrass prefers sunny  lawns in good soil, while fine fescues tolerate some shade.   Broadcast  seeds  with  a  mechanical  spreader  using  three  or  four pounds per 1,000 square feet.  Any more than that is wasteful.  Rake the seedbed lightly, using just the tips of the rake teeth.   Go over the area with a lawn roller if convenient.  Sprinkle the  soil gently, and keep it moist until the seeds germinate.  Mow once the grass starts to grow.  Grass kept at a height of  two to three inches can withstand heat stress better than closely  cropped grass.  This mowing height encourages deep rooting, so  you don’t have to water or fertilize as often.  Be aware that if you are using a combination fertilizer and herbicide, this may be taken up by any tree and shrub roots under

the lawn, and injure them, too.  If you use residual weed killers  that linger in the soil to prevent future weed growth, these may  kill many soil microorganisms.  This sometimes results in poorer  soil, and thus, poorer lawn growth and vigor.  If  applying  weed  killers,  be  sure  to  properly  identify  your  weed  problem  before  you  select  an  herbicide.    Then  select  the  least  toxic  product  for  the  job,  looking  at  application  rates  and  potential toxicity to plants, animals, and humans.  Read and follow all label directions carefully.  Always use these products judiciously  to  avoid  contamination  of  water  supplies  and  lakes,  streams, and other surface waters.  Lawn  pests,  such  as  chinch  bugs  and  Japanese  beetle  grubs,  can  be  a  problem  in  northern  New  England.    The  often  advertised  milky  spore  product  is  not  very  effective  on  soil  grubs  in  cool  climates.    Instead,  you  should  check  into  beneficial  nematode  products  for  these  pests,  or  seeds  enhanced  with  “endophytes” – beneficial fungi that help provide some pest resistance.  A healthy lawn is the best cure for weeds and pests.  If problems  occur,  such  as  insects  and  diseases,  check  with  your  local  garden center for answers.  Also check with your local Extension  Master Gardeners, as some states have hotlines for questions (1800-639-2230  in  Vermont,  or  master.gardener@uvm.edu).    For  special lawn treatments such as vertical cutting, dethatching, or  coring to reduce soil compaction, you might consult a lawn care  professional.

Springfield Humane Society He’s big ~ He’s handsome ~ He’s friendly as can be!

His name is Carter and he’s only 3! Actually he is 4 years old but that did not rhyme. Carter is an extremely friendly and lovable tan tiger fellow who is so easy going and wonderful to have around. He is fine with other cats that do not get in his face and children are just fine with him. Carter promises to warm your lap or lick your nose or if you prefer he’ll sleep by your toes. If you love cats here is one that will quickly work his way into your heart. The Shelter is open Wed-Sat noon-4:30 ~ 885-3997 Best friends meet at 401 Skitchewaug Trail! Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. That means it is time for our annual Plant & Bake Sale ~ always the day before (Sat. May 11). What a great place to get the perfect gift for Mom while supporting a great cause. She’ll love you even more for that! Our next low cost S/N clinic for cats is June 11 in Springfield and is nearly full. Call 885-2174 to reserve a spot. We need a good set of heavy duty grooming clippers, & postage stamps.
