Lake Champlain passes flood record By Lou Varricchio ADDISON — Lake Champlain floodwater continued to expand inland last week as days of heavy rain, and a r ecord mountain snow melt,

flowed into the lake basin fro m feeder rivers and creeks. The lake began rising sharply late in the afternoon May 3 in V ermont. On May 4, it was 2 feet above the past record flood level. The Route 125 ap-

proach to the temporary ferry crossing in Addison, a few hundred yards south of the site of the new bridge construction, was closed May 3. After a week of thr eatening levels, water spilled onto the

roadway just south of the Bridge Restaurant in Addison. Access to the Addison ferry was closed on the morning of May 4. See FLOODING, page 2

CROWN POINT — Historic flooding along Lake Champlain will not delay the scheduled opening of the Lake Champlain Bridge linking Crown Point and Chimney Point, Vt. On April 28, Lake Champlain r eached 102.2 feet, beating the record of 101.86 feet set in 1993. Flood level is 100 feet. By May 5, the lake level had reached 103.1 feet, raising concerns about the Lake Champlain bridge construction. “The record flooding of Lake Champlain is not expected to significantly impact constr uction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge,” Car ol Br een, senior public information officer for New York State Department of Transportation Region 1, said on May 5. “Work right now is focused on setting steel, which is being done from barges on the lake,” Breen explained. “As the lake water rises, the bar ges rise with them and work can continue.” The bridge superstr ucture

will be built at Valez Marina in Port Henry and, when finished, be floated down the lake to the bridge site, where it will be lifted into place by cranes. “Valez Marine, the site where the steel ar ch for the bridge will be built, is flooded at this time,” Breen said. “Contractor work to build a support structure on which to build the arch has ceased until flood waters recede, but at this time we do not expect significant longterm schedule impacts. “We will continue to evalu-

ate the situation as it progresses,” Br een said. “Our goal is still to have the bridge open to traffic in October.” The new Lake Champlain Bridge is scheduled to open Oct. 9, 2011 — despite a 65-day extension to its project schedule granted by the state DOT to contractor Flatir on Constr uction in March. Flatiron Constr uction encountered underwater r emnants of the old Champlain Bridge. That debris hampered

SERPENT OR OLD LOG? — Amateur photographer Joe Charles of Plattsburgh, N.Y., snapped this image of what could be “Champ” the Lake Champlain monster (center in water). The poor quality image was taken through a built-in cell phone camera. Charles, who said he strongly believes the object was a large animal moving north on the lake, took the photo from a vantage point in Crown Point, N.Y., near the bridge construction site early morning April 27.

Murder from page 4 “This gun would have been used for deer hunting, but also commonly used by gangsters,” according to Dapsis. “The other inter esting bullet casing found was of a .38 caliber casing which is the same casing that could hold a bullet that was found in one of the skulls possibly fir ed from a Colt automatic,” Emilo said. “This will be determined after experts can verify our suspicions.” Intriguing? You bet. “Even though the chances were slim that something dir ectly r elated to the crime would be found it was worth spending the time to investigate,” Emilo noted. According to some Vermont newspaper reports at the time of the crime, the night the bodies wer e found an Addison County sheriff, the state’s attorney, and a local doctor removed the victims remains; they wanted to put a stop to a

circus-like atmosphere that was developing at the crime scene. “People were helping themselves to souvenirs whenever they could; over the next few days, after the skeletons were f ound, t he l onely r oad w as l ike the Rutland Fair ,” Emilo said. “Cars were parked everywhere. Some folks wer e taking and selling crime-scene photos. It was very possible that ther e cou ld have been other items left behind.” Personal items fr om long ago often turn up today, Emilo and Brande said— and that was their motivation to searc h the East Middlebury site after 76 years. “It was very inter esting to see what Mr. Dapsis fr om Gr een Mountain Treasure Hunters had to shar e with us after our expedition was over,” Brande said. Among Dapsis’ tr easures wer e old buckles, jewelry, pottery, and coins. “One of the coins he found in his hunt in V ermont was a 1796 Spanish coin and another coin he found was

created when the 13 colonies became the 13 states.All found in Vermont,” according to Emilo. Both women said the hunt for evidence in East Middlebury was worth it. “It’s sad when you think of those unidentified bodies,” Emilo said. “A mother and her two children—who were they? What wer e their names? Walking in those woods makes you think about that. ‘If Woods Could Talk’ is the title of our forthcoming book about the mur ders because only the woods hold the untold secr ets about this horrible crime.” Check It Out: Researchers Roxanna Emilo and Kathy Brande want to talk with long-term residents of Addison County who might know about the 1935 unsolved triple murder. They want to learn about tidbits or stories that circulated in the years following the murders. Contact Emilo at 349-9837/388-4440 or Brande at 4537021.

Town of Hinesburg Multi-Use Path Project Hinesburg,V ermont Vermont Individual Wetland Permit Application – Wetland Project # 2011-023 The Town of Hinesburg is proposing to construct a Multi-Use Path (Path) within the area known as the “village core”. The Path has two connected components: a concrete sidewalk extension and road widening along Mechanicsville Rd., and the paved pedestrian and bicycle path along CVU and Ballards Corners Rds.


The Department of Liquor Control, the Addison County Tobacco Control Roundtable, and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Vergennes’ Prevention Grant would like to thank the following retailers for passing their Alcohol and/or Tobacco Compliance Checks in 2010. Their vigilance in ensuring underage youth are not purchasing tobacco or alcohol products at their establishments is helping to make our community a healthier place to live.

The 5’ wide, 0.63 mile long concrete sidewalk will be located along the west side of Mechanicsville Rd., from the existing sidewalk on Commerce St., north to the intersection with CVU Rd. This portion of the proposed Project includes grading and sideslopes, installation of retaining walls (where necessary), widened road shoulders, and stormwater management improvements; the pouring of the cement sidewalk and curbing; the re-pavement of sections of Mechanicsville Rd. and the widened shoulders, to provide approximately 4’ wide, bike-safe shoulders; and the installation of speed tables and signage in order to slow traffic on Mechanicsville Rd. The sidewalk portion will be located almost entirely within the existing road shoulders. There will also be upgrades to the stormwater management system associated with this section of Mechanicsville Rd, and paving and pavement marking.

Antidote, Addison Four Corners Store , Almost Home Café, American

The second part of the Path involves the construction of a 10’ wide, 0.69 mile long paved, multi-use path along Ballards Corner, Shelburne Falls and CVU Rds. This portion of the Project extends from the intersection of CVU Rd. and Mechanicsville Rd. to the end of the path at the Carpenter-Carse Library on Ballards Corner Rd. This section of the Path will be located on the north side of CVU/ Shelburne Falls Rds., and on the east side of Ballard’s Corner Rd. The work for the Path will include grading of both the Path surface and slopes, and proposed stormwater management swale between the Path and the existing roadway; paving of the path; pavement marking and sign installation for the proposed crosswalks; and re-vegetation and landscaping plantings.

Drugs - Middlebury, Kampersville, Lawrence Retail, Leicester

The Project will result in temporary or permanent disturbance to approximately 0.016 acre of Class II wetland and 0.131 acre of Class II wetland buffer. These are located adjacent to an unnamed tributary to Patrick Brook. Efforts to avoid then minimize these impacts include early identification of sensitive resources, alternative design considerations, planned use of measures to control erosion and sediment during construction, and siting of project elements outside of wetland or buffer to the greatest extent practicable.

The killing of Osama

From the Editor

Treading water in Vt. F


y all means—please feel free to blame Mother Nature for the recent weeks of rain, cloud cover, and record mountain snow melt that have now formed the “perfect storm” to nudge Lake Champlain into its worst flooding since 1969. Conversely, please feel free to blame Vermont officials for ignoring those same old roads that get submerged—year after year— and disrupt traffic patterns in Addison County and beyond. The pattern is predictable and getting very old. Take the narrow, two-lane “causeway” just south of the Lake Champlain Bridge site on Route 125. The so-called McCuen Slang area of the lake is a popular fishing and waterfowl viewing locale. It’s lovely during summer and autumn months, but this time of year the little Route 125 causeway is invisible— partially or completely submerged by spring’s predictable high water season. And of course, every year, drivers deal with high lake water lapping at the edges of the slang or actually spilling on to it. Now take last week’s record lake flooding. It was the worst flooding in recent memory. Some weather experts are still debating the record, but who’s to quibble? Regardless of the recordbook, the 2011 flooding was terrible and costly. Properties were damaged and lives disrupted. Last week was the first-time lake water completely submerged the slang causeway in more than a decade. But knowing that the slang is a low area that is barely above the level of the lake and prone to flooding, why hasn’t it ever been shored up? Seriously. Are we supposed to simply accept the slang’s periodic inundations? I certainly don’t accept this kind of lazy highway planning. After last week’s flooding, either better berming—even bridging—of the Route 125 causeway should be a VTrans project priority. We’ve heard the excuse about “no funds”. What happened to them when we had them? Several years back, we were told, the slang was built up—slightly—but Vtrans had never anticipated that the lake would

rise to last week’s record 107 feet above sea level. While Vermont’s rapid lake rise last Tuesday was bad, it could have been worse (and we have seen worse flooding in the American midwest and southeast this spring). Once again, we the taxpayers—and local commuters—have to ask Vermont’s elected and appointed officials: What are our transportation taxes being used for, if not to rebuild peanut-brittle bridges, scarify pothole road surfaces laid atop poorly made beds, and shore-up areas where annual highway flooding occurs like clockwork? An out-of-state friend of mine remarked two years ago that most of Vermont’s roadways looked, to him, like the thoroughfares in Lil’ Abner ’s Dog Patch. Ouch. Have Vermont’s officials considered the financial link between our crumbling bridges and roads—and tourism? Seriously, what visitor wants to buy a jug of Vermont maple syrup or a cottagemade tchotchke when he or she needs a wheel alignment—or even a submersible engine snorkel installed—in the process? Example: Have you driven along U.S. Route 7 near the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory in Shelburne? Now think of all the tourists visiting the famous factory. They will have memories for a lifetime of their very own teddy bears and Vermont’s version of the Baja 1,000 off-road race. Sure, I know all about the toll freezing and thawing has on our roads (I’ve lived in North Dakota!), but honestly—there are more streets and alleys in the greater metropolitan area of frosty Albany, N.Y., than in the State of Vermont. Metro Albany doesn’t look half as bad. So, why has this state ignored so many of its highway and bridge problems for so long? There’s no need to expect the same roads to be underwater year after year. Ask your state legislator if he or she can do something about this problem. Let’s solve a problem instead of just expecting the same dreadful thing to occur year after year. Lou Varricchio

olks are cheering and smiling—they’re lauding Osama’s death. I understand it can only be a good thing, but what the killing has me thinking about are the two main players in the drama, Osama and Obama. Start with Obama. What a guy. He pulls the Osama kill off like a champ, like a battle-tested field marshall. And what is this Barack really? Just a guy, like you and I. He didn’t know his Pop well. His Ma wasn’t around a lot, so his Gram raised him pretty much. I heard she had a couple of bucks which didn’t hurt. He’s sharp as a gimlet or at least smart enough to get into highbrow schools. He did well in the schools, gets out, does some community work here and there, connecting to people (I’ll assume more of the right ones then wrong ones which is a talent). He gets elected to the U.S. Senate and through hard work and a clever game plan, mountains of help; perfect timing; gets elected U.S. President. I mean wow, that is impressive. I’m not BSing here my friends. That is impressive. I’ve always been impressed and aware of the course of Barack’s life, but until I saw the May 1 photo of the White House Situation Room watching the hunt for Osama unfold did it hit me that—son of a cuss— he’s just a fella not too far distant from us; he was playing the ‘70s kid’s game called “Battleship” (but he was playin’ for real, man). And the folks with him in the photo are less far separate from us. The gang in that room have to be pinching themselves over the fact that living a Hollywood blockbuster themed existence is their job. Good on ‘em. I also appreciate G.W. Bush’s role in the hunt. Everyone agrees he and his gang worked hard and long on Osama. Obama himself said it. I just heard Obama invited Bush to stand with him at an event celebrating the family’s of the folks who fell on September 11th, and I think it’s totally great Bush is taking a pass and not attending (so is Clinton). His day is behind him now, he doesn’t need to be there to distract from

whatever there is to be celebrated. He’s cool enough to give Obama and his gang their due without having to say, “Hey, I had a lot to do with this.” Seems Bush knows he did his work— and for him, that’s enough. Bush’s life course was unique, too, but I do think you could imagine him getting to the highest office of our land before you would imagine the son of a working class single Ma and an absent Pa. (As a result, I am not as impressed with Bush’s ascension to the White House.) What about the Navy Seal who put the holes in Osama? As a school kid did that person dream of one day eliminating, with two shots, the number one enemy of the United States and the Allies? I’d bet he did. And 15 years later, what happens? He fires the second and third shots heard round-the-world. Nice work. I can’t help but think the person who killed Osama was the type of kid lots of other kids made fun of. How great is America’s fruit bowl of opportunity? One guy goes from being a little ROTC kid to killing the world’s most wanted man—a mass murderer—and another goes from making fun of ROTC kids to kissing their boss’s behind to get ahead in life. Well, I’ve learned much about life from Osama’s death last week. The crazed billionaire mastermind of the worse attack in our country, who turned care-free societies into care-cautious societies, who’s followers raped and tortured women and men, who in his black heart thought most people are bad and should be killed—could in the course of a few hours be scared witless, then killed, have his body stolen, washed according to the Muslim way, and then buried at sea. Osama’s death stunned me. We all thought he was something, but in the end, he was nothing. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

And they are beaming back a repeat message that, according to one NASA scientist, is “both unsettling and thrilling.” The message, programmed for the fun of it by project scientists back in the 1970s, is—”Expect the unexpected!” Ed Stone, Voyager Project scientist since 1972, said what made the twin mission so historic was the fact that they took advantage of a rare alignment in the solar system of all the outer planets, except Pluto. “Voyager 1 visited Jupiter and Saturn, while Voyager 2 flew past Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Voyager 2 is still the only probe to visit Uranus and Neptune,” Stone said during a space agency news conference held last week. Stone listed all the amazing discoveries of the Voyager robot team: •Volcanoes erupting on Jupiter's moon Io. •An ocean far below the ice surface of Jupiter ’s moon Europa. •The magnetic poles of Uranus and Neptune are mysteriously tipped. •Geysers erupt regularly on Neptune's moon Triton. •Methane rain falls on Saturn's moon Titan. •Evidence was found showing that planetary winds are faster as you move away from the Sun. Stone said the Voyagers are now passing through the solar system’s heliosheath. “The heliosheath is a very strange place, filled with a magnetic froth no spacecraft has ever encountered before, echoing with low-frequency radio bursts heard only in the outer reaches of the solar system, so far from home that the sun is a mere pinprick of light,” he said. “In many ways, the heliosheath is not like our models predicted.”

According to Stone, “No one knows exactly how many more miles the Voyagers must travel before they pop free into interstellar space. The heliosheath is 3 to 4 billion miles in thickness. That means we'll be out within five years or so.” Heat from Voyagers’ nuclear batteries should keep things running smoothly onboard until the year 2020, possibly longer. “The Voyagers will become our silent ambassador to the stars,” Stone said. “Each probe is famously equipped with a Golden Record, literally, a gold-coated copper phonograph record... A team led by Carl Sagan assembled the record as a message to possible extraterrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft.” Stone said the chance of aliens finding the Voyagers is “fantastically remote.” In 1979, the first “Star Trek” movie was about a Voyager spacecraft that merged with an alien spaceprobe. The two shared their circuitry and became a fantastic, super entity bent on destruction. “Well, that’s science fiction—make believe,” said Stone. “But with our real Voyagers, ‘expecting the unexpected’ is even more fantastic.”

Water, water everywhere Lake flooding closes roads, camps

By Lou Varricchio ADDISON — Addison County experienced some of its worst Lake Champlain shoreline flooding since 1969. Route 125 was closed in the McCuen Slang wildlife ar ea due to high water. Travelers to and from Middlebury were forced to approach the lake ferry and the Bridge Restaurant via a detour through West Addison. In Shoreham, the Fort T iconderoga Ferry slip was under high water. The ferry was expected to open in mid May and it is uncertain how badly flooding has damaged the dock area. Boats at the Champlain Bridge Marina seemed undamaged but riding high as high water cover ed a portion of nearby Route 17. In these various areas, Vermont Agency of Transportation crews added reflective posts to protect lanes from high water. Up north along the lake, travelers on Route 78 between Swanton to Alburgh proceeded with caution. Water spilled over into travel lanes. Vermont Agency of Transportation road crews continued to work to stabilize Route 2 from Milton to South Hero. Route 2 had water on the r oad and is one lane. Traffic is backed up on the road so motorists are asked to only travel to the Lake Champlain Islands if necessary. VTrans marshalled its resources to install barriers and fill to raise the road and keep water off travel lanes. Travel was down to one lane at times to accommodate tr uck movements for the road improvement operations. Route 129 in Alburgh has also been closed of f due to debris on the r oad. These r oads are being closely watched by VTrans staff and law enforcement and will be closed if necessary. Notification will precede any road closure. For all r oad closures and travel information, please visit (updated thr oughout the day between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.).

Green Mt. Audubon Center’s Birdathon returns to Addison County By Gwendolyn Causer HUNTINGTON — The song of the whitethroated sparr ow is my tr ue harbinger of spring. Its clear , melodious “Oh-sweetCanada” whistles through my neighborhood in northeastern Addison County and r eminds me of the thousands of migratory songbirds returning to Vermont. This bird’s song also signals the return of the Gr een Mountain Audubon Center ’s annual Birdathon in Huntington. The center is

located at 255 Sherman Hollow Road. The Birdathon is like a walkathon, but instead of counting miles, participants spend a spring day outdoors counting birds. Local Audubon staf f will hike at least 5 miles and then bike 10 mor e miles to see or hear as many as 85 different species of birds during the 24-hour Birdathon this month. Birdathon contributions will stay locally providing young people with engaging opportunities to connect with natur e, scholarships t o a ttend s ummer c amp, a nd s chool programs throughout the year.

The Bir dathon helps local landowners manage habitat for native bird species, many of which ar e declining dramatically and need our help. The center continues to work with dozens of Addison County landowners already so that the songs we hear each spring can continue into the future. Here are three ways to support Addison County’s Birdathon: -Make an online donation. Go to the “Bir der” box at the top of the page. -Become a sponsor. Make a pledge per bird species ($2 per species) or e-mail vermont@ to submit your pledge. -Visit online at http://vt.audubon.or g/ birdathon.html to get started, cr eate your Children help counting birds during last year’s Birown Birdathon team, and join in on the fun. dathon at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in A gift will help sustain the center’s educaHuntington. tion and conservation work.

Thoughts on the Vermont health care system The bill to put Vermont on the irreversible path toward a single payer health car e system is now well on its way to the governor's desk. The cer emonial signing may well be the governor's answer to the pageantry of a United Kingdom royal wedding. Perhaps the most startling aspect of this four month legislative saga has been the enormous contrast between the daunting requirements of organizing the new $3 billion government program, and the limited competence of its advocates. The 2010 legislature launched the process, for at least the third time, by voting $300,000 to Dr. William Hsiao of the Harvar d School of Public Health to explain how to gather all Vermonters into the grandsingle payer system. The Hsaio team re commended a level of health b enefits t hought t o b e s uitable f or Vermont's under- 65 population. It specified the payr oll tax rates r equired to bring in enough tax dollars to pay for the pro gram. It claimed an astounding $590 million a year would be saved (starting in 2015) by abolishing health insurance companies. So the House Health Car e Reform Committee brought out a bill that gave the Hsaiorecommended Gr een Mountain Car e Boar d the power to set benefit levels and decide how much to underpay health car e

providers but neglected to include any pr ovision for raising the necessary $2 billion of new taxes. Instead, the new Board was told to take another year and another million dollars to grapple with the same questions that Hsaio had already studied. Once the eligible population is identified, the Boar d's view of the "appr opriate health care at the appr opriate time in the appropriate setting spelled out, the costs of that care estimated, and the Federal subsidies added in, the Board can tell the legislatur e how much it will have to raise in new taxes to keep this ship above water. In the Senate, the majority Democrats won the vote of Sen. Kevin Mullin (R-Rutland ) by agreeing to require the Board at some unspecified point to announce to the world that it believes that Green Mountain Care would reduce administrative costs (whose?), contain the growth in health care costs, improve the quality of care, attract providers, and not damage the state's economy. There is no appeal process or enforcement mechanism for these declarations.

Gov. Shumlin has made it clear that he wants t he n ew O bamaCare-mandated E xchange to be the only place anyone can obtain health insurance. In addition, liberals have long ago taken to viewing Health Savings Account plans as a conservative plot to thwart their collectivist ambitions. Sen. Vince Illuzzi (R-Essex-Orleans) of fered a carefully crafted amendment that would have pr evented the Exchange fr om exterminating the popular HSA plans. The Democrats voted it down 11-19. The Democrats also voted down an amendment from Sen. Randy Brock (R-Franklin) to advance the date for the administration's health car e tax r equest fr om January 2013 to September 2012. That would allow the voters to learn what's in stor e for them if the governor is reelected. Only eight senators wer e willing to support that eminently sensible provision. It was patently appar ent during the legislative debate that the backers of single payer, now r elabeled "universal and unified health system", have little grasp of the com-

plexities involved in completely dis assembling and repackaging Vermont's $5 billion health care sector to satisfy the Sanderistas shouting that health care is a human right. The Democratic legislators ar e mar ching to orders from the Shumlin health care high command. They ar e almost mystically convinced that the native genius of Vermonters can somehow make Gr een Mountain Car e work. This is so even though forty years of the almost identical Canadian single payer model have pr oduced rationing, waiting lines, maddening bur eaucracies, demoralized doctors and nurses, shabby facilities, obsolete technology , declining quality of care, and of course much higher taxation. Typical of this widely held attitude is the remark of Sen. Anthony Pollina (I-Washington): "We're from Vermont. We're one of the smartest states in the country , and we can figure this [single payer thing] out." This is the same Sanderista activist whose venture to pay farmers premium prices for milk and sell it at competitive prices pr edictably collapsed into insolvency. As the saying goes, politics ain't beanbag. Neither is health car e reform, but the beanbaggers are in the driver's seat. John McClaughry is vice president of the Ethan Allen Institute (

Connection to Cavendish revealed

By Margo Caulfield

CAVENDISH —A one-of-a-kind letter, addressed to John Redparth, a biographer of John Br own—the famous abolitionist who set off the spark that started the Civil War—and penned by Cavendish lawyer Henry Bridge Atherton in 1882, was brought to the Cavendish Historical Society's attention recently. A copy of the historic local letter , which adds to the knowledge that the Proctorsville-Cavendish area—as well as Vergennes—played an interesting role in the Civil War era, has been released. Not only was V ermont Gov . Ryland Fletcher fr om Cavendish, but he was a staunch abolitionist and sympathized with Brown’s viewpoint. The rare letter indicates that Brown was seeking guns and money to help with his cause, and that he had begun to lay out the plans forthe eventual insurrections in Kansas, which led to the death of five people that were pro slavery. Unfortunately, the last page of the what was most likely a five-page letter, is missing. This text of the letter follows: Proctorsville, Vt. M. 9th, 1882 (To:) James Redparth Esq. I have sometimes thought the day would come where your publishers would issue another edition of your “Public Life of John Brown,” which was 1st published at Boston in 1860 by Thayer and Eldridge 11 St and 116 Washington St. I have been recently reading that book, and it occurs to me that, in view of the events following the execution of the old hero-the man-the freedom of the slave, the political results of the executionand the history of our country in the past quarter of a centuryyou might perhaps to write that book and, if so, I would want a copy to side by side with the copy I now have in my library. John Brown and his son, Owen, I think it was, came here in the last days of Dec. 1856 or in the early part of January 1857- and spent some time on those days at my office-boarding at the Village Hotel. At that time I held the office of Secretary of the Vt. Senate- and our Governor-Hon. Ryland Fletcher, a brother of the late Hon. Richard Fletcher, of Boston, and Judge of Mass. Sup. Court- now my new neighbor. Our Legislature at the previous Oct. Session at Montpelier had passed an act authorizing Gov. Fletcher, in his discretion to furnish funds to an amount not exceeding twenty thousand dollars$20,000-for the relief of the suffering citizens of Kansas-as you will find by reference to the session laws of 1856 in the Library-

MHardware ARTIN’S

John Brown in 1856 Our state casual care of __ General Gundry of Vergennes, Vt., had on hand quite an amount of guns-out of date & useless to our State. Gundry was authorized to sell or dispose of them. In some way John Brown had learned of these facts—and came here to examine the laws-and to confer with Gov. Fletcher. The Old man told us that the generosity of the people had so supplied the citizens of Kansas with food and clothing as none of this __ appropriation would be thus needed, least be thought possibly the Gov. might be authorized to let him have some of the old guns from the state Arsenal-He became satisfied on looking at the law, that Gov. Fletcher could not appropriate guns for the Defense of Freedom in the direction indicated. The Old man told us his objectives to enlist young men-pious and patriotic determined young men-not wild and ?? profane ones in his service and that he proposed to rendezvous at Tabor in Iowa-just over the boarders from Kansas and await events. He showed me the enlistment papers as drawn up by him and most neatly executed. He said he expected on the return of Spring in 1857- the Missourians-becoming supplied themselves with a new stock of whiskey, would again invade Kansas-and he wishes to be ready to repel them. He said that courage of those invaders depended very much on the amount of whiskey they had. He was very conscientious-writing at my office table many letters in the time he was here. I offered him paper, envelopes—postage stamps-and he always left the dimes in the box to pay for them. The son was a light complexioned and sandy haired youth as compared with the father-they had the chains with them-that the borders ...

BURLINGTON – Vermont Rep. Peter Welch (D), along w ith R ep. B ill O wens ( D-N.Y.), i ntroduced legislation recently to help dairy farmers meet their labor needs. The H-2A Impr ovement Act of 201 1 (H.R. 1720) would allow dairy farmers access to the H-2A visa program, which other sectors of agriculture currently use to hire foreign workers. The H-2A visa program allows farmers to hire for-

eign workers when domestic labor is unavailable. H.R. 1720 would allow for eign dairy workers, sheepherders and goat herders access the program. The U.S. Department of Labor issued u r les in 2010 excluding the dairy industry from the H-2A agricultural worker visa program. While sheepher ders and goat her ders curr ently have access to the H-2A program, H.R. 1720 would make this access permanent.

To the editor: I’ve been following the finger pointing at Vermont Yankee and the refusal to do business with them. I draw two conclusions. First, it looks like my monthly power bills will be going up because that’s what happens when a governor and the state’s utilities say no to 4.9 cent power and yes to more expensive power. Second, it looks like the r eplacement for Vermont Yankee will be high-carbon smokestack power . Some people say ‘who cares’, but I know people who have trouble br eathing even when the air is clean. My sister had chronic breathing problems before she died r ecently. Clean air mattered a lot to her. The governor’s idea of building natural gas-powered plants in the Champlain Valley does not strike me as very healthy for people with breathing problems. Bad decisions have bad consequences.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As oil companies report first quarter pr ofits, Rep. Peter Welch (DVermont) took to the House floor May 5 ur ging Congr ess to r epeal federal grants to the oil industry. Just last week, Exxon Mobil r eported profits of nearly $11 billion in the first thr ee months of the year, a 69 percent increase over last year. “While oil companies are doing quite well, Vermonters are not. They simply can’t afford to fill their gas tanks,” W elch said. “Congress should be taking steps to cut gas prices, not look the other way while oil companies line their pockets with taxpayer support.” Welch has been working on multiple fronts to provide r elief to strapped consumers.

public opinion pulse check. Also, not every resident of Bristol took part in the poll; so the poll r esults, as far as every town voice being heard, was not definitive. Fellow commissioner Kris Perlee noted that the poll was useful; it helped shape the opinions—some pro, some con—of commission members. Residents also challenged the commission’s definition and interpr etation of the town’s conservation zone. Meanwhile, commission members said they could consider redefining what the definition of the zone meant. For example, not all areas within the zone needs conservation protection.
