Largest local Memorial Day parade, observance - May 31 VERGENNES—Somber reflection. Patriotism. The unofficial beginning of summer. These are what most people think about on Memorial Day in Vermont. All three ingredients will be present during what is expected to be one of the largest Memorial Day parades in Vermont as the City of Vergennes hosts the parade and follow on ceremonies this Monday, May 31. The day begins when the parade, titled “Never Forgotten”, sponsored by Vergennes American Legion Post 14, steps off from Vergennes Union High School at 11 a.m. Floats, marching bands, color guards, veterans’ groups, scouts, fire trucks, antique cars, and many more participants will cover the two-mile route as they parade down Main St., make a loop through side streets and conclude at Vergennes City Park. Both Gov. Jim Douglas and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders are expected to participate. Ann Sullivan will announce the participating groups and personalities on the public address system as they pass the reviewing stand on Main Street. Following the parade, Master of Ceremonies and Legion Commander Larney McGrath will kick off the ceremonies from the bandstand in the park. The Vergennes Union High School band will play the National Anthem prior to an invocation by Rev. Yvon Royer, pastor of St. Pe-

FARM FIRE— Middlebury firefighters responded to an overheated tractorengine oil fire that occurred in a field along Creek Road in Middlebury May 24. Several fire vehicles arrived on the scene, including a brush truck, where the field opposite Otter Creek, was being plowed. Recent low humidity—more typical of northern Arizona than northern Vermont—had firefighters and fire wardens on the lookout for wildfires. Photo by Lou Varricchio

Memories in the headlights
riving along you’d click it down with the upper third or quarter or eighth of your left foot, and bang: job done, no hands man, it was low beam and keep ‘em coming—cars that is. You know what I’m talking about? How old are you? Let’s see, you’d have to be what, 40, or 35 maybe, if your first car was used, to know what I’m talking about. Because if you count 18 as being first car owning age—and you’re 35—now, you were18, let me figure this, a 35 (sorry, I add out loud), year old was 18 in, what, 1992—so yeah, I’m right, if you’re in your 30s now, you’d have to have had an older car as your first car to know what I’m talking about; how beautifully the toe clicker high/low beam switch worked. Remember the sound it made? It was a solid, All-American, “I poured eleven concrete piers today, got done at tenthirty, pouring the last one tomorrow,” guy type sound. Stop reading for a second and if you know the sound I speak of, and listen for it. Solid. The definitive “kahnahca” sound the clicker made was enhanced by it’s being constructed so perfectly that when you pressed down on it your foot would ground off the strength of it’s rugged design, sending a not so subtle volt of juice up through your leg to your hip bone creating a muscle memory that, for me hasn’t dimmed a titch in more than twenty years. (Partially explains so many baby-boomer hip replacements) Interesting that the angle your foot rested on the clicker made it so the pressure you applied to operate the switch did not move it in a straight down trajectory, which led one to assume the clicker might wear fast, or malfunction regularly. But it rarely did. Over time as the clicker clicked, your ears and bones would pick up more rattles; the once smooth down-up motion slowly evolved into a rickety down up. A simple drop of 3-in-1 Oil stymied most hitches in the clickers step for a good long while. No oil needed when road dirt and salt would jam the clicker, most usually in the down position. Angling your left foot so the soul of your shoe was to the right and middle of the body of the clicker, then moving your foot only a tad,

ost T.V. channels straddle the 54–890 MHz (megahertz) frequency band. But even as technology changes, and more closed circuittype T.V. transmission methods are used en masse, it is likely that future video signals will still leak into space. But for our discussion, we’re interested in those early broadcast analog T.V. signals—signals out there. Somewhere. What would happen if terrestrial audioand-visual signals, dating back to the Golden Age of Television, were detected by extraterrestrials on distant planets? Is such an idea possible? And what would extraterrestrials make of our earliest T.V. signals? Even with today’s digital television retooling efforts, television is disseminated widely by an old medium—radio transmission. Broadcast T.V., in its purest sense, is a form of radio; that is, radio with pictures. It may come as a surprise to discover that the first powerful broadcast T.V. signals leaving planet Earth were neither the shortwave experiments by pioneering sci-fi writer and experimenter Hugo Gernsback in New York in the 1920s nor the broadcasts of 1950s American T.V. shows. Instead, the first T.V. signals to leave the Earth originated in Nazi Germany. Earth’s earliest, far-ranging video signals were German propaganda broadcasts between the 1930s and mid 1940s. While its video propaganda plans never panned out, the socialist Nazi government had hoped to equip every German household with a free T.V. set. While the technology existed for German television by the mid 1930s, the cost of CRT (cathode-ray tube) manufacturing and the infant medium’s transmission infrastructure remained elusive. Hilter ’s opening remarks at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games appear to qualify it as the first deep-space signal. Radio astronomer Chris Davis, of Britain’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, claims that terrestrial T.V.-radio signals like the Nazicasts of the ‘30s and ‘40s could be picked up on distant planets with the proper hardware and software. “A good amount of Earth’s artificial radiowaves, like the shortwave frequency variety, never get past the ionosphere,” Davis said in a recent BBC interview. “However, modern broadcast television signals can pierce the atmosphere. These signals easily traverse space at the speed of light.” But as these signals cross interstellar medium, they would become very diffuse and difficult to focus at the
receiving end. “There are two things that you would need to get such a signal—firstly, it has to be able to leave our planet, By Lou Varricchio secondly it would have to have as much power as possible,” Davis noted. “As you go into space that power would dissipate. They would need more and more sensitive equipment to pick it up.” I’m sure that if advanced civilizations exist, they will have the ability to detect Earth’s faintest television-radio signals. Of the question, what would aliens make of these signals, well, that’s anybody’s guess. But, somewhere—out there—the television broadcasts of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, and original episodes of “Star Trek” and “The Brady Bunch” are approaching the recently discovered planetary system of Zeta Reticuli. Farther out into space, the original broadcast signals of “The Lone Ranger” and “Howdy Doody” are approaching the planets orbiting Pi Mensae. And reaching even farther into the vastness of the Milky Way, hypothetical extraterrestrials 73 light years distant may be watching humanity’s first interstellar greeting—from none other than Adolph Hitler. What’s in the Sky: As we saw last week, many deep space objects congregate in Cassiopeia this month. The brighter ones are NGC 884, NGC 869, and Cr 33.

SATURDAY May 29, 2010 and gently to the left for two solid taps, would release the clicker back to it’s up position. For severe jams, repeating the left foot tap would be necessary. Now and then, without warning, the clicker would release itself from the down position with a longslung spring-sprung “bouwnng,” promptly scaring the beejeebers out of you. I miss playing the clicker in syncopation to “Jingle Bells” while I drove over the river and through the woods to grandmas. I remember toe clicking the second banjo part from “Dueling Banjos” so beautifully, the mice residing in my heater popped their little heads out of holes in my dash, and, with their mouths full of straw, hooted me a bravo. I would trade global-positioning rigs, DVD players, individual compartmental heating options, cameras that assist you backing up, heated seats, 20-inch wheels, in-car computer gauges that give you a running tally of transmission temp, and any of the other fantastical bull-flop charge us a 10-pound bag load for more stuff we don’t need, for the old toe-clicker high/low beam switch in a heart beat. The toe-clicker high/low beam switch was a more than efficient and fun-to-work characteristic that now, along with being able to change your oil, plugs and points, represents life lived in a less complicated generation. Mr. Ford, Mr. Chevy—please bring back the toe-clicker hi/low beam switch! My blinker/hazard/front wiper-washer/rear wiper-washer/high/low beam switch lever is too busy with knobs for a simple-minded guy like me. I’m not kidding. I long for the vanished toe-clicker high/low beam switch. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

More gesture politics
n a mirror-image of a six-year-old quote—applicable to current events under the U.S. Capitol dome—we now know that members of the legislative branch, in deciding whether to audit the Fed, just voted against it before voting for it. Most of us were not yet around when an earlier generation of legislators in the twin chambers adjacent to the capitol rotunda voted to create the Fed as a way of side-stepping their own constitutional duty of managing the American currency for value and stability. In 1913, dissatisfied with private-sector banking’s issuance of bank notes over a 124year period with a dismal record of 12 percent in dollar-value shrinkage, the legislators installed a bureaucracy which has presided over (or orchestrated—you choose the correct verb) a 95 percent loss in purchasing power. To this day, you won’t find that historical performance record discussed in the mainstream news media, much less conceded by Fed leadership itself. Critics of the dollar-value shrinkage have been ignored or silenced: in my own amateur economist readings, I’ve learned that ex-Wall Streeter Benjamin Graham in the 1930s and past Fed member Wayne Angell in the 1990s proposed commodity based currency-stabilization designs. Meanwhile, present U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan started making commodity basket suggestions during the 2000s. But the history of Fed fecklessness goes back to its pre-World War I birth, not just the Great Depression. Nowhere is it better described than in a 2009 tome entitled “Lords of Finance” authored by Liaquat Ahamed. In 564 pages, “Lords...” paints a centurylong portrait of European and American financial leadership stippled with a document cascade of inept decisions, colleague deception, incorrect statistics, and raw politicking— a pattern preceding and paralleling, within the American Fed, the goings-on in the various European central banks. Instead of relying on the “skilled” judgment of financial wizards to manage currency for constant value (the Fed now admits its goal is 2 percent annual inflation), the commodity dollar would be on automatic pilot so that its commodity purchasing power would remain constant, neither inflating nor deflating. An old book, “Storage and Stability” is worth reading. Here’s from a website about the book: “When Benjamin Graham wrote Storage and Stability in 1937, the world was in the midst of the Great Depression. Written as a blueprint for economic recovery, the book was designed to spur both governments and the public to greater financial awareness. Based upon years of research and economic modeling, Graham's new theories focused on the inherent importance of supply and demand,
production and consumption, and their inherent influences on value investing.” Well, that was in the 1930s. In the 1990s, Fed governor Wayne Angell hoisted a similar flag. Angell, now a Columbia professor, is no longer on the Fed. He has enjoyed similar political success in marginalizing even professional economists like Joseph Stiglitz, once a World Bank economist). Here’s a typical professional (Stiglitz) opinion: “If we (World Bank) had seen a governance structure that corresponds to our Federal Reserve System, we would have been yelling and screaming and saying that country does not deserve any assistance, this is a corrupt governing structure”. Stiuglitz’s comments drew neither official recognition nor response. And here’s Martin Harris’ opinion: Whether the Fed is internally corrupt or not— and that includes its documented history of tweaking monetary policy to please the inpower administration—matters less than whether it accomplishes its assigned mission, to regulate the value of the currency. It has failed at that mission. Could a commodity based dollar driven by mathematical formula, not professional judgment, perform any worse than 95-year/95 percent-devaluation failure? You decide. But probably it doesn’t matter. That’s because gesture politics—the legislative branch’s proposed kabuki-play enactment of Fed-audit—contemplates none of the following: 1.review of the Fed’s 95-year performance history, 2. review of the Fed’s policy-tweaking political-campaign-support pattern, 3. The Fed’s role in enabling Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to fund a trillion dollars worth (actually, worthless) of sub-prime mortgages, and 4. the academic argument for a more mathematical monetary policy, closer to the workings of a currency board regulating domestic currency to balance. Such a revision to present Fed authorization would replace skilled judgment (which has proven decidedly unskilled) with a more robotic formula. You might call this a gold standard without the gold. But gesture politics will doubtless dominate, so the legislative branch’s review will focus on—drum-roll, please—emergency lending rules. More next week. Martin Harris is a retired Vermont architect and an observer of all things strange and political.

College honors student artists MIDDLEBURY—Each year the Friends of the Art Museum at Middlebury College recognize those who have made significant contributions to the community, either through their creative endeavors or through support for the visual arts in Addison County. At the recent annual meeting, the friends honored five individuals in five categories. Student award winners were Middlebury College senior Jack Reed of Stowe, Mount Abraham Union High School senior Anna Pierattini of Monkton, North Branch School eighthgrader Luke Freidin of New Haven, and Weybridge Elementary School sixth-grader Nikhil Plouffe of Weybridge. Artist Kate Gridley of Middlebury was the award recipient in the category of Professional or Amateur Artist, Craftsperson, or Teacher. Jack Reed’s work includes painting, printmaking, sculpture and set-design. He has excelled in Studio Art classes,
and during his junior year he attended the Slade School of Art in London. Anna Pierattini’s extensive and remarkable body of work ranges from portraits of orphans in Myanmar and El Salvador to murals for the school and to almost a thousand miniature drawings in a series called “Good Dog Nigel.” Luke Freidin creates photographs of unusual power and beauty which, according to teacher Tal Birdsey are not accidental. According to art teacher, Sarah Flinn, Nikhil Plouffe’s use of perspective results not from training, but from close observation of his environment and from the concentration and care he uses in his art. As an artist of independent vision and astonishing technique, Kate Gridley’s paintings have an infectious energy and an arresting point of view. She is able to suffuse everyday subjects with grace and elegance.

Gas station to pay $35,000 fine for fuel leak SOUTH BURLINGTON—The owners of the Gracey's Store gas station and convenience store on Williston Road in South Burlington, Slimain Handy's Convenience Stores, will pay a $35,000 penalty to the State of Vermont as a result of a gasoline leak from an underground storage tank that contaminated the soil and groundwater at the station. “We take the enforcement of our environmental laws seriously, particularly when it involves a release of a hazardous substance like gasoline,” Vermont Attorney Gen. William H. Sorrell said. “Because even a small amount of gasoline can cause serious environmental harm, owners of underground storage tanks must be vigilant in monitoring their tanks.”
Under the court approved settlement, Slimain Handy's Convenience Stores will pay the state $35,000 stemming from the release of gasoline from the store's underground storage tanks in October 2006. The leak contaminated the soil and groundwater at the corner of Williston and Hinesburg roads. The Attorney General's Office and the Agency of Natural Resources Underground Storage Tank Program sought the penalties in Washington Superior Court after the contaminated soil and groundwater were cleaned up following the leak.

CVPS recognizes energy customers Central Vermont Public Service celebrated the success of CVPS Cow Power™ by recognizing the farms and customers who have helped make it one of the top renewable energy choice programs in the world. Honored by CVPS at a customer and farm appreciation event were the first six farms to produce Cow Power and the program’s top 10 commercial customers based on kilowatthour purchases. “Our Cow Power farms and customers are the true backbone of this program,” CVPS President Bob Young said. “Because of their participation and support, Cow Power has become a meaningful option for all CVPS customers who want to buy renewable energy and support the local farm economy.” Among the honorees were the Blue Spruce Farm, Pleasant Valley Farm, Green Mountain Dairy, Montagne Farm, Maxwell’s Neighborhood Farm and Gervais Family Farm. On the customer enrollment side, Green Mountain College, Long Trail Brewing Company, Mary Meyer Stuffed Toys,
Harrison Concrete Construction, Handy Automotive, Cobb Hill Cohousing, Middlebury College, Co-Operative Insurance Companies, Cas-Cad-Nac Farm and the Green Mountain National Forest were recognized for their significant voluntary support of the program. The Cow Power process is simple: manure and other agricultural waste are held in a sealed concrete tank at the same temperature as a cow’s stomach, 101 degrees. Naturally occurring bacteria digest the volatile components, creating methane and killing pathogens and weed seeds. The methane fuels an engine/generator which sends electricity onto the power grid. The process kills almost all manure odors, and provides a soft material for bedding animals. CVPS customers can choose to purchase the electricity at a premium of 4 cents per kWh which goes to participating farm producers, to purchase renewable energy credits when enough farm energy isn’t available, or to the CVPS Renewable Development Fund which provides grants to farm owners to develop on-farm generation. There are currently 3,640 customers enrolled in the program. Since the first farm came on-line in 2005, CVPS Cow Power™ has generated over 29 million kilowatt hours of clean, locally produced renewable electricity. On average, the six Cow Power farms produce about 1.4 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 1,660 average Vermont homes while removing over 16,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents from the atmosphere through methane destruction.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Unfair dealings To the Editor: As we write this we are thinking ahead to the one-year anniversary of the closure of the Champlain Bridge connecting Vermont and New York. And, we are wondering if many of our small farms and stores will still be in business. The sudden closure of the bridge had a negative impact on many. We began contacting federal and state representatives shortly after the bridge closed to ask for assistance and to offer some practical suggestions such as providing grants and loans as mechanisms to help business owners along the corridors to and from the bridge. The Vermont State Legislature voted 98 percent against grants for all affected by the closure. They did pass a bill, S. 288, to provide much needed support in the form of loans designed to help businesses affected by the bridge closure. Porter Hospital in Middlebury received a $40,000 appropriation from the legislature to reimburse employees who incurred additional expenses from commuting longer distances from their homes in New York. This appropriation was made outside of the process that other businesses were required to follow. State Senators Ayre and Bartlett, circumventing the process that was established in S.288, did this. We deserve an explanation as to how this favoritism came about. Our elected officials are expected to represent all citizens. We are frustrated by the decision making in Montpelier. It does not appear that there has been fair treatment. It certainly looks like who you are and who you know matters more than actually needing some help to stay afloat until the new bridge is constructed. Andy Megroz Panton General Store Panton

New, stunning flowers for Vermont gardens Dr. Leonard Perry UVM Extension Professor The All-America Flower Selections program is an awards program for new flower and vegetable introductions, grown from seeds, which must bloom the first year in the case of flowers. In the past, winners were released to display gardens a year prior to their public introduction for sale. This year marks the first time winners are being released for sale as they are announced. The four flower winners previously selected for 2010 include the compact, yellow blanket flower 'Mesa Yellow'. 'Twinny Peach' is a snapdragon with butterfly, double peach flowers-- a snapdragon without flowers that go snap when pinched! 'Endurio Sky Blue Martien' is the latest viola winner, flowers under an inch across and a sky blue. 'Zahara Starlight Rose' is a new zinnia, about a foot tall, that stands out with its white flowers and contrasting rose-red centers. The most recently announced award winners for 2010 include two more zinnias in the Zahara series: 'Double Zahara Cherry' and 'Double Zahara Fire'. The former is of course a cherry pink, the latter is a rich reddish orange, and both are double with many petals. All three winners in this series of zinnias
Award-winning hybrid African marigold: Moonsong Deep Orange. UVM photo
are about a foot high and wide, with flowers 2 inches or more across. Being a cross of more than one species, this Zahara series has good resistance to leaf spot and powdery mildew diseases. Plan on a couple months from sowing to first flowers. There is a marigold winner this year,
BROWN’S TREE & CRANE SERVICE
the first one in several years. 'Moonsong Deep Orange' is a hybrid African type. Some prefer to call these American marigolds, as this genus is originally from Mexico to South America, not Africa. This marigold gets about a foot high, and should be spaced about a foot apart. Its dense, double flowers are a deep orange and about 3 inches across. Start seeds 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost when you can plant outside. Unlike many newer annuals you find for sale now that need lots of fertilizer, too much fertilizer for this one will give lots of green leaves with few flowers. The only vegetable winner for this year is a globe-shaped watermelon. 'Shiny Boy' has red flesh, dark seeds, a sweet tropical flavor, and a crisp texture. It is a vigorous hybrid, with vines growing up to 12 feet and fruit reaching 20 pounds. Start checking fruit for ripeness about 75 days from transplanting. It tolerates severe weather, and can be grown in vertical gardens (with proper support given, of course, for the fruit such as a mesh bag or cloth sling). Look for seeds in mail-order catalogs, and seed racks this spring at your local garden store. For more details on these and past All-America winners, visit their website (www.all-americaselections.org).

E-cigarettes, a New Age smoking alternative By Lou Varricchio firstname.lastname@example.org
WE CAN HELP KEEP YOU TRUCKIN’
CASTLETON CORNERS—Even before he graduated from Temple University Law School last week, Adam Tredwell— founder and co-owner of Vermont Vapor, Inc. of Castleton— was well on his way to being a successful entrepreneur. Tredwell’s Rutland County business started with a simple solution for millions of tobacco smokers worldwide: how to enjoy smoking without the risk of inhaling cancer-causing smoke, tars and related by-products? Tredwell, a Rutland High School Class of 1996 alumnus, developed his electronic cigarette, or e-cig, operation while still a college undergraduate. The business evolved at his mother ’s suggestion; she wanted to quit smoking and had learned about unusual electronic devices manufactured in communist China (although the Chinese-made liquids vaporized by the e-cigs to form the ersatz smoke are of very dubious quality and content). “You get the feeling of smoking without smoking,” he said. “My Vermont-made content is clean water vapor with a little citric acid and natural flavoring.” Tredwell and his mother, Linda Barker, manage the year-old corporation all by themselves. For Tredwell, it took focus, a creative product idea (a much needed smoking alternative), a clever marketing plan, a user-friendly website, and a genuine Vermont storefront to establish the business. He had already decided to find an al-
ternative to traditional smoking when he couldn’t smoke during college exams. With all that now in place, Vermont Vapor is really—you should pardon the expression— smokin’! Despite a fire last month that destroyed Vermont Vapor ’s rented e-liquid production space on Route 4 in Rutland Town, the company is back on track. Despite a local rumor, fire investigators found that the blaze started in an adjoining business; it had absolutely no connection to Vermont Vapor ’s operation. Vermont Vapor ’s cozy retail shop at Castleton Corners has attracted e-cig fans from as far away as Montreal and Boston. In addition to the shop, a new laboratory and production facility will “rise from the ashes” adjacent to the outlet in mid June. Tredwell is committed to satisfying the needs of hardcore smokers who are looking for a clean alternative to puffing on traditional cigarettes, cigars and pipes. The Vermont Vapor-brand e-cig device itself is an odd blend of Chinese technology (Asians hold the patent on the electronic device) and high-quality Vermont USA e-liquid made by Tredwell. He oversees the production of his e-liquid product line which is made in a clean, quality-controlled environment. As a result, the Vermont Vapor e-cig is a truly smokeless, odorless device that is evocative of smoking—yet it is not smoking in the traditional sense.

Vaping From page 10 Yes, a user puffs on an e-cig, but the misty material expelled isn’t smoke—it’s nearly 100 percent water vapor. (The e-cig uses a mini, battery-powered atomizer, or vaporizer, to turn pure water, food-grade glycerin, and natural flavoring into a pseudo-smoking experience.) Thus, puffing on a Vermont Vapor e-cig is called “vaping”—short for vapor inhaling. And for many e-cig users who have failed to quit smoking tobacco through the use of foultasting nicotine chewing gum, cumbersome patches, even cold turkey fits, Vermont Vapor is a real lifesaver—literally. “What you're seeing is just the vapor—no smoke. There is nothing that is burned. It's the e-liquid in the cartridge which is heated by the atomizer when you draw on the e-cig. There is usually no odor at all except maybe from the flavors, which are never overpowering or objectionable,” Tredwell claims on the company website. Because he and his mother so passionately believe in the benefits of the e-cig as an alter-
native to smoking, Tredwell and Barker chose to begin selling them and make their own quality-controlled liquid product line. Vaping is clearly a viable alternative for smokers. While it’s not cheap to switch from mainstream cigarettes to e-cigs (try around $70 for a starter kit that includes two long-lasting ecigs, batteries, cartridges, A.C. battery charger, and starting liquid), the long-term costs of vaping are amazing compared to the hundreds of dollars spent monthly by traditional smokers—a cost that amounts to about $5 a week for heavy users. A single bottle of Vermont Vapor flavored vaping e-liquid will last the user many, many weeks depending on frequency. The e- cigarette is a high-tech alternative to smoking but it is not a smoking cessation device, Tredwell said. “Some people have quit smoking using the electronic cigarette but we make no such claims as to effectiveness for that purpose and e-cigs are not sold for that purpose,” he said. “At Vermont Vapor, all the liquid we sell is mixed entirely by us; we start with 100 percent pure food grade glycerine and add distilled water, nicotine (if you want it), and citric acid to balance the pH,” he said. “To this
THE EAGLE - 11
base we add only food grade flavorings— well, with the exception of our tobacco flavoring for some of the liquids we sell. Any of our tobacco flavors we make ourselves from ground tobacco leaves.” So, how safe are Vermont Vapor ’s e-cigarette products? “Our e-liquid generally contains only nicotine, vegetable glycerine, water, flavoring and citric acid. Our menthol liquids also contain propylene glycol and ethanol,” said Tredwell. “These ingredients are U.S. pharmacopeia grade and/or are FDA-approved food additives. The liquid is heated in the e-cigarette until it forms a vapor, analogous to steam when water is heated. Since nothing is burned, the user never inhales any smoke or
tar and only inhales those ingredients listed on each bottle of Vermont Vapor e-Liquid. However, because nicotine is an addictive stimulant, it is always best to check with your doctor before using this product. Likewise, children and persons who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not use this product.” Check It Out: To learn more about the science and art of electronic cigarettes, or for an e-cigarette demonstration, visit the Vermont Vapor store at 15 Route 4A West in Castleton.

Nippon is focus of Sheldon Museum program MIDDLEBURY—On Tuesday, June 8, at noon, Douglas Brooks will present a lecture entitled “Building in the Japanese Spirit” offered at the Sheldon Museum in conjunction with the Sheldon’s current exhibit, “The Nature of Wood: Vermont Furniture and Woodware 1790 to the Present” has worked primarily as a boat builder, but also builds furniture and Japanese-style interiors. He has also worked as a timber framer and restoration carpenter. Brooks' interest in Japan has led to recent work building tansu, or Japanese cabinets. The pieces reflect both the complicated join-
ery and a unique aesthetic that are intrinsic to Japanese woodworking. He will share photographs drawn from a dozen trips to Japan. Brooks has traveled to Japan since 1990 to research traditional Japanese boat building, and has built boats with five Japanese masters. He is currently working on his third book on Japanese boat building. Bring a brown bag lunch; beverages and dessert provided. Fee: $2. The Sheldon Museum is located at 1 Park Street in Middlebury across from the Ilsley Public Library. For information call 388-2117.

GUESTVIEWPOINT A monument to thee
group of local Middlebury officials, residents, and historians have recently created the Middlebury Centerpiece Committee to flush out plans for a monument to stand in the soon-to-be built roundabout on the Main Street side of the Cross Street Bridge. “Committee members believe the monument should be ‘substantial’ in size because the roundabout will be considered a second ‘pole’ of the downtown.”
According to the committee, the purpose of the monument would be to either: 1. provide a gateway to the college 2. celebrate getting the Cross Street Bridge built after a half-century of trying. 3. commemorate the 250th anniversary (in 2011) of the town charter 4. or make a statement of civic pride. What could argue for each purpose? A question worth examining.
MAPLEFIELDS BRISTOL NOW HONORS SHAW REWARDS CARD TOWARD GAS PURCHASES!
1. We should dismiss the “gateway” concept out of hand. Too ostentatious for a small, traditional New England college. Not to mention, it won't be in the correct location. A simple, clear traffic sign with an arrow should suffice to point the ways. 2. Getting the bridge built has been described as a “monumental achievement” (get it?). Not building the bridge, itself, which after all, is not quite as accomplished as building the pyramids or the Taj Mahal. The Cross Street achievement will be in finally getting the $16 million necessary to build it and enough folks in town to vote for it. But in a world with billions and trillions being tossed around like nobody's business, is $16 million monument worthy? It's just money. Even though some of us worship money,
SATURDAY May 29, 2010
should we dedicate a monument to it? 3. Selectman Victor Nuovo, who happens to lead this committee as well as the town selectboard, has said that perhaps this centerpiece "commemorates the town—the fact that we've been here 250 years in this place...” Imagine that: 250 years. But in the light of day, that doesn't give Middlebury any real distinction. When how many years you've been around is the measure of things, you have to go to a place like the Eternal City, Roma, which has been around since at least 753 B.C. Even if you stayed within the confines of America, you'd have to go to Jamestown or St. Augustine as locations that deserve a monument based on time. The mere fact that a town has lasted 250 years is a bronze plaque mounted

prominently on its town hall. 4. Erecting a monument as a symbol of civic pride is an interesting idea. It’s sort of like raising a monument to ourselves. What is a town but those who live in it? So to say we're proud of our town says we're proud of ourselves. But if we don't celebrate ourselves, who will? The next generation surely won't, they will be busy celebrating themselves and forget all about us. Besides, some people might think that the level of civic pride required for a monument of "substantial" size would by necessity need to be inflated. How else could you explain, to prove the point, the crumbling pavement and railing along the sidewalk that runs in front of Otter Creek Books and Green Mountain Apparel. Is it probably a safety hazard or practically a landmark? Either way, it's still a thorn in the side of civic pride. Well, no matter the purpose. Someone can think something up. In the meantime, it will be a substantial monument and it won't cost us a thing. It will all be financed by donations and grant money. Nothing wrong with donations. People are still free (as of this writing) to give their money to whatever purpose he or she wants. But for it to

be a true donation, it should be given without benefit of some tax deduction. There's nothing more self-serving than a bunch of people forming a cause that qualifies to give donors a tax deduction and then giving to it. Grants are a different matter. A lot of people refer to grants as so-called free money, but of course there is no such thing. The government gets its grant money from us through taxes. The government is banking on our short attention span, so that by the time they give some of it back in the form of “grants” we will have forgotten that it was ours in the first place. Meantime, our taxes keep going up—in part to help finance all these so-called giveaway grants of “free” money. Bottom line: Some Joe Schmoe making $7.25 an hour elsewhere could find his hardearned tax money used to pay for Middlebury’s monument. Schmoes across the country are building little grant-funded monuments for people in celebration of themselves. Is this a great country or what? To be fair, there are also grants that come from private foundations. It’s a very interesting how that works, too. Wealthy corporations, trusts and individuals form private foundations and give away money. And they say Americans are greedy? Okay, it's true that these organizations are required to distribute 5 percent of their total assets each year to maintain tax-exempt status. This means they have to give away money. By giving away some money, they save more money for themselves and have the additional benefit of appearing to be civically generous. Truth is, because those wealthy corporations, trusts, and individuals save taxes, the government has to raise taxes for the rest of us to make up for the difference. So in a way, we're still paying for the “free money” grants a select few are getting. Is that what is called “fair”? It could be argued that the grant business has a good side—it creates jobs. Jobs for people to make up forms, fill out forms, write grant proposals, read grant proposals, make presentations and play Santa Claus. Even “free” money is limited, so there has to be a process to see who deserves it more then the other guy. Maybe that's why it's called a grant because someone, somewhere is the decision-maker and like a king he or she grants the chosen some free money. The biggest concern Middlebury should have is how the whole thing looks. Not the monument itself, but the act of spending money on something completely unnecessary when Vermont herself is having money problems. The state legislature just got through agonizing over how to cut the budget. Middlebury will appear to be blind, deaf, and pretentious. Maybe that's it! That’s the purpose the committee is looking for. Okay, problem solved. Meanwhile, does anyone want to donate money to fix that downtown Middlebury sidewalk? —Flip Bradford Writer Flip Bradford lives in Middlebury. His work has appeared in several Vermont publications.
