Woman claims man with a knife broke into her home On May 28, at about 12:23 p.m., area law enforcement personnel responded to 2454 Vermont Route 116 in Starksboro for a reported home invasion. Additional information yielded that an adult female occupant of the residence had been cut multiple times by a male intruder who had brandished a knife. The victim was transported to the Fletcher Allen Hospital for treatment of her wounds. At this time, the victim is reportedly in stable condition and she remains at the hospital for further treatment. The lone male intruder was described as being white, approximately 5'10" tall with a weight of 200 pounds. The intruder was said to have been wearing blue jeans and was noted to have been wearing a ski mask and gloves at the time of the attack. There is no further information available at this time. Anyone with information concerning this event is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Robert Patten of the Vermont State Police-New Haven barracks at 388-4919. Update: The Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation continued the investigation into the reported home invasion and assault that occurred in Starksboro early this week. There are several inconsistencies with the victim’s story which are being followed up on by investigators. At this point the victim is not able to give a complete account of the events that occurred. This investigation is ongoing. As soon as any pertinent information is learned, state police officials said they would issue an updated news release.

NATURE’S FURY Powerful winds felled trees across Addison County around 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 31, leaving many without electricity for up to five hours. The Vergennes-FerrisburghCharlotte areas were hardest hit with winds blowing at over 40 mph. The fastmoving storm cell, bringing in cold air, ushered in an unusual frost warning for the early morning of June 1.

Weekly Pink Floyd radio show "Floydian Slip" will end its 13year run on Champ 101.3 with show 701 on June 7. The show appealed to area baby boomers who grew up listening to the British band’s psychedelic and space rock music during the 1960s and 1970s. Station management informed the show's host, Craig Bailey, of its decision on May 28, citing the station's evolving format and the show's lack of sponsorship as reasons.


"I never imagined this would last as long as it has, but I'm not quite ready to have it end," said Bailey. "I suppose I'd consider pitching it to another station or webcasting it on my own. I haven't decided. "I appreciate the chance to do a good-bye show on Champ. It's not very often a D.J. is let go and then invited back behind the mic one last time." Bailey started the show in 1989 on 106-VIC, a student-run station at Ithaca College, where he was a

senior. After a year on the nowdefunct WEXP 105.1 in Burlington, he brought the show to Champ in 1995. Over the years, "Floydian Slip" has received attention in, and served as a source to, media as diverse as the Dallas Morning News, the Ottawa Citizen, Relix, and VH1. In 2006, Bailey wrote the foreword to the book "Speak to Me: The Legacy of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon".

Win the Grocery Store Price Cycle Game


ave you ever gone to the grocery store and wondered why prices on the same items change so much each week? A box of pasta may cost 79 cents one week and $2.39 the next. A bottle of juice that costs $2 today may cost $4.29 just a few days from now. Most people accept these price fluctuations as normal. Many don’t even notice them at all. Why do prices at the grocery store change so much in a short period of time? Grocery stores sales run in 12-week cycles. Most everything in the store is at its lowest price point just once every 12 weeks. Throughout the rest of the cycle the price may fluctuate a bit, but it won’t go to its rock-bottom low again until the 12-week cycle is complete. You might be thinking what I thought when I initially learned this valuable piece of information: “What if I had just bought more pasta last week when it was 79 cents?” Better yet: “What would have happened if I bought enough boxes of pasta to last my household 12 weeks?” I’d save $1.60 on each box. If we ate pasta once a week for the next 12 weeks, I would save $19.20 by buying all 12 boxes in one trip when the price was low. Granted, this approach goes against everything we typically do as shoppers. When it’s time to go to the store, most of us look around the house, see what we’re out of, and then go to the store to buy it. But the problem with this is that it’s impossible for every item on our list to be at its lowest price point, since different categories of grocery items operate on different pricing cycles. That’s part of the grocery store’s marketing plan. Stores know that if shoppers come in for a sale item, it’s likely they will buy many other full-priced items. As shoppers, changing the way we shop is the key to saving money. Obviously, it’s not easy to stock up on perishable produce and dairy items. But many other products are easy to store for long periods. If you start saving money on slow-to-outdate items – cereal, canned and frozen foods and personal-care items like toothpaste and shampoo – your en-

tire grocery bill will start to come down. Here’s the challenge: We are just not in the habit of buying 12 boxes of pasta at a time. But why not? Pasta has a long shelf life. It By Jill Cataldo doesn’t spoil. It’s easy to store. Yet, when we see it on sale we usually don’t think, “That’s a great price. I’m going to buy a dozen.” When I became a Super-Couponer, I started seeing shopping in a new light. I started buying larger quantities of my household staples when they were at their lowest prices. Die-hard couponers refer to buying in quantity as “stockpiling.” When you buy more than you need because the price is low you can “shop from home” the next time you need that item, because you have stockpiled it in your kitchen cupboard. And you’ve avoided paying the higher price for the identical item in the grocery store this week because you purchased enough to last your household almost three months when the price was lowest. And we haven’t even discussed coupons yet! Imagine that during the pasta sale, I had coupons for 75 cents off each box of pasta. I would now be buying my pasta for just four cents a box. We’ll discuss how to use coupons in conjunction with the 12-week sales cycle next week. © CTW Features

“One of Vermont’s Best Since 1973”

Ask Dr. Curtis Gross Chiropractor Q: Can chiropractic care help you when you already have a spinal problem or arthritis? A: Arthritis is permanent. Once there is degeneration or wear and tear of the joints it’s there to stay. If that’s the case, chiropractic care is utilized to slow down its progression and minimize the pain. In some cases this care, along with high quality supplements, can reverse the problem to some degree. Other problems such as disc problems and scoliosis are similar. Chiropractic care won’t regrow a disc, but it can reduce the pain and slow the wearing out of that disc. A scoliosis can be partially corrected with specific types of chiropractic care. This takes regular care and time. In summary, yes, chiropractic care can help you if you already have a problem with your spine. In fact, it’s a great decision to have a chiropractor on your team if you have any type of back problem. Chiropractic care will help you manage your problem as well as slow down the advancement of that problem. “the greatest wealth is health” Call 388-6376, mention this article and schedule an appointment for a FREE Evaluation and X-rays. 37357

Pursuing Veronica, part 4


he had only a couple scenes in the play, yet she’d show up at the start and watch the entire rehearsal. I knew she wasn’t a theatre major, so I had to guess she was hanging around extra to check out a dude, and I figured that dude might be me since there was only one other single dude in the play, and he was Fay. A blind man could see that when she chatted with him it seemed more like girlfriends gossiping than heteros flirting. When Veronica and I chatted, which was not often because I was involved in most every scene, we said very little, which led me to think, or believe, or more to the point hope like a bastard, that we were treading lightly around emotions we wished could erupt into a one way trip to love. (Please feel free to use the final seventeen words of that paragraph in a song – but understand, the song will probably suck if you do). Robert, our great director, decided would be best for Veronica and I to work on the sensitive scene we shared at the end of each night’s rehearsal. “The set will be closed,” he announced to the cast, which meant no one else would be allowed to watch. I felt like kissing Robert right then and there because ending rehearsals (we rehearsed on the top floor of a working dairy barn), with only Robert around to compete for Veronica’s attention, would allow me fantastic opportunities to utilize my highly evolved ability to woo … which of course I did not and still do not have. But being the politest, sweetest, most humble and content young man to bid Veronica “Night,” under a dozen or so of the absolute most perfectly clear star filled summer Vermont evenings, couldn’t hurt my chances. The closed rehearsals were working very well. Not having our acting peers peer at us while we worked allowed for maximum concentration on a scene that included a good deal of physical action. Veronica and I felt a heightened sense of solitude that helped us feel free to tangle about, emotionally and physically. I remember during an intense pass through a part of the scene were Veronica struggles to free herself from my character’s grip, my right hand accidentally, not just brushed by, but actually formed a full landing on, for a good fully seems like fully five seconds, her breast. I was freaked, and after Robert stopped us I politely apologized to Veronica. She half smiled, using her hand to shoo away my apology, the way Oprah might shoo away one’s offer to pay for lunch. “Oh, that’s, that’s fine,” she said quietly. I could tell at the very least Veronica understood that I was a sincere and nice guy, which is all a man should and can ever want a woman to understand. At that point my summer was made. Anything that might build between us beyond her understanding of my sincere feelings would be cream on the peach. Cream takes time to whip. The play was about to open. Summer was fading. I kind of wanted me some cream. To be continued. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

What’s an artium baccalaureus worth?


ews that Middlebury College’s annual per-pupil cost will soon rise past the $50,000 mark isn’t an unexpected shocker—after all, it was within easy striking distance last year at $49,210, so getting to $50,780 is merely a walking-around-money increase. But a nice round number like $50K is a benchmark of sorts, and raises once again all the time-honored questions about the purpose, value, and cost of a college education. Typically, it’s called an “investment” with further elaboration directed at either the (supposed) resulting broadening of knowledge, outlook, and understanding, or the first step toward professional skill, recognition, and reward in some vocational endeavor. Frequently the two are rhetorically mixed together, presumably so the listener won’t know whether there’s supposed to be a return on the investment and what form that return should take. Maybe that’s because there used to be a measurable social distance between those who entered the halls of ivy to take their rightful places as gentlemen even more fully conversant with the five-foot shelf of Western Civilization, and those of us who were, unforgiveably, mixing some professional-vocation (dare I say trade-school) education in with our purely liberal arts exposures to historical verities. I’m told there still is, which perhaps explains why the public-relations experts in higher education describe their course offerings with oblique phrases like enabling students to “enhance their professional potential” or the slightly more direct “prepare for government…or privatesector careers”. In today’s halls of ivy, Western Civ doesn’t have the cachet it once had. Now-retired-from-Wellesley Classics educator Mary Lefkowitz was prominently ostracized and even sued for daring to object to the politically correct Afro-centric notion that everything the ancient Greeks supposedly invented or wrote or designed had been stolen from advanced sub-Saharan civilizations. Thus, fifth-century B.C. (we happily shun the P.C. use of BCE) Greeks presumably sneaked peeks inside the fourth-century B.C. Library at Alexandria which, unfortunately for the Afrocentrists’ comprehension of chronology, hadn’t even been built when Socrates supposedly removed archival documents, Sandy-Berger-style, from it. Instead, today’s institutes of higher learning prefer to convey such notions as “counter-hegemony”, “imperialistic legacy”, and of course “the dialogic process of being human”. The quotes come from the American Educational Research Association, a professorial group in which unrepentant past bomb-tosser/ present education-prof William Ayers is an honored member. As an equally unrepentant Lefkowitz supporter and Western Civ enthusiast, I choose to let that matter be and focus instead on the crassly fiscal

side of the higher-ed costbenefit equation. How does paying Middlebury $50K for four years, a total of $200K, work out in terms of career profitability and future retirement security, compared with putting the same amount into market investments and watching them grow, under the magic of compound interest, for the 44 years between graduation age 21 and retirement age 65? The answer can be found on the Web ( in the form of a savings calculator. If you plug the cost of an A.B., $200,000 (four years of tuition at full sticker price) into the formula, and instead invest and grow it at 6% for 44 years, it shows that the now-65-year-old retiree has a nest-egg of $2.8 million. Actually, 6% growth is a bit conservative, because the long-term investment history of the equities markets has been just over 8%. Let’s equally conservatively have the retiree live off his earnings at 5%: that would be an annual stipend of $140,000 without even touching the principal. If the would-be-student had been planning on paying half the sticker price, and then chose not to, the formula would start with $100,000 not spent for tuition and end up with a nest-egg of $1.4 million, The annual retiree stipend would be $70,000. And if the would-be-student had avoided four years of a $12,500 tuition cost, his nest-egg would start with $50,000, grow to $700,000 by retirement, and throw off $35,000 in annual passive income. By way of comparison, median personal income in Vermont was $37,000 in 2007, mostly actively earned, not passively received. Actually, the numbers don’t fully answer the question. A student who has to borrow and re-pay his tuition costs will end up worse off, financially, than the above examples show; and one sufficiently skillful networking-wise to parlay even full-sticker-price tuition into an upper-floor corner-with-views corporate office will end up much better off. A student majoring in Medieval Lit will face a lower career-long wage-scale than one selecting a more vocational endeavor: engineering, physics, geology. But then, money isn’t everything—for those of a scholarly bent, there may be more personal satisfaction in Chaucer, de Troyes, and Malory than in bridges, reactors, or drill-cores.

The Sun’s nearest neighbor E

arth’s nearest star is, of course, our Sun located 93 million miles away. But common references to Earth’s “nearest star” usually refer to Alpha Centauri A, a star in a nearby stellar system consisting of three suns. The Alpha Centauri system is located in the constellation Centaurus. While Alpha Centauri A is considered the nearest star to Earth—at just over four light years distant—its smaller companion, the red dwarf star Alpha Centauri C or Proxima Centauri, can be a tad closer due to the long, slow dance of orbital mechanics. Overall, the Alpha Centauri system is approximately 4.2 light years from us (a lightyear is the distance a beam of light travels in 365 days— 9,460 billion kilometers or 5,880 billion miles). Alpha Centauri A is the third brightest star in our night sky although to see it you must travel to either southern Florida or Texas. The star is best seen during the month of May when it is highest in the southern sky. In recent decades, some astronomers have begun referring to Alpha Centauri A as “Rigil Kentaurus”, which literally means “foot of the centaur” in Greek. However, both names, Alpha or Rigil, are still correct to use for this Sunlike star. Alpha Centauri A is nearly a twin of our Sun although it is slightly larger and brighter (spectral type G2 with an apparent magnitude of +0.01). Alpha Centauri B is a yelloworange star, slightly smaller and cooler than our Sun. Because Alpha Centauri A is so Sunlike, some astronomers have speculated that there might be Earth-like planets orbiting it although none have been detected so far. And because it is so similar to our Sun, Alpha Centauri has been a popular destination in space-age mythology— from author A.E. Van Vogt’s classic 1944 science-fiction tale of suspended-animation star trekking, titled “Far Centaurus”, to television’s long wandering “Lost in Space” Robinson family. Let’s put some things into stark perspective: Using current chemical rocket technology, a crewed voyage to Alpha Centauri B would take 32,000 years! Such an impossibly long trek would require a multi-generation starship and vast amounts of fuel; in effect, such a starship would be a miniplanet in its own right with vast living areas, hydroponic gardens and livestock to nurture and sustain many generations of people in flight. In 1987, NASA and the U.S. Naval Academy proposed Project Longshot, an ultra-fast robot probe intended to fly to Alpha Centauri powered by nuclear-pulse propulsion. As proposed, Longshot could reach the Alpha Centauri system within a century. This advanced rocket technology could be scaled up to power an ultra-fast manned mis-

sion—but then who would finance such a bold voyage? Because Alpha Centauri A is a member of a triple star system, it appears as a single point of light from Earth. Both Alpha Centauri A and B are too close together to distinguish them as individual stars. Alpha Centauri C is simply too dim to be seen with the naked eye from Earth. Alpha Centauri A and B orbit a shared center of gravity once every 80 years. Approximately 3.6 billion kilometers (2.2 billion miles) separate the two stars—about the distance between our Sun and the planet Uranus. Trio member Alpha Centauri C orbits A and B at 1,500 billion kilometers (930 billion miles) taking several million years to circle its distant stellar companions. Because C is so distant from its larger companions, an inhabitant living on a planet orbiting stars A or B, would have no idea that Proxima was even part of their stellar system. NASA computer models suggest that Earth-like planets could form close to either Alpha Centauri A and B. Thus, the Alpha Centauri system may hold the best chance for finding extraterrestrial life beyond our solar system. What’s in the Sky: On the early morning of Friday, June 5, you can see a “triple play” of planets in the eastern sky—look for Mercury, Venus and Mars hovering just above the horizon (see accompanying sky map).

Hinesburg News

Community Band to open the Lions’ Farmers Market By Margery Sharp On Thursday, June 4, the Hinesburg Lions Farmers' Market will open for its sixth season to the music of the town's Community Band under the direction of Rufus Patrick. Once again the market will be run by an all-volunteer crew whose members are made up of the local Lions Club. The market runs through the summer to the last Thursday in September. Market hours are 3:30 to 7 pm. Many of the regular vendors will return along with several new vendors, all of whom will offer their locally-prepared cooked foods, home-grown produce and a variety of handcrafts honed in local studios. The venue for the market once again will be the Community Church of Hinesburg which is located conveniently on the main street in the heart of Hinesburg. (The church has allowed the Lions to hold the market on its grounds since its inception in 2004). There is ample parking for customers in the church's adjacent parking lot. Since all the Lions volunteers are not paid, the vendors' membership and space rental fees constitute the profit made by the club. These monies are, in turn, recycled back into the community to assist those persons who require help with such expenses as vision and hearing tests and, occasionally, the purchase of eyeglasses and/or hearing aids. The market welcomes anyone who wishes to become a vendor. Contact Jo White at 482-3018 or Margery Sharp at 482-2651 for more information and an application.

ROTARIANS—Last Saturday morning the members of the Charlotte Shelburne Rotary Club were planting annuals to add a touch of color to the newly designed entrance to Shelburne Museum. Taking a break are Rotarians Chuck LaClair, Michele Lash, Elaine Dates, Steve Dates, Rep. Joan Lenes and Fritz Horton. The redesigned entrance, with its wide open curves of rock terraces and flowers transplanted from the museum grounds, was the beneficiary of a $12,000 gift made by Charlotte Shelburne Rotary.

Chamber Players to showcase Shostakovich By Bill Wargo Dmitri Shostakovich played a mean piano. The Russian composer (19061975) often converted the piano into a percussion instrument, using its upper register like an xylophone, shooting out sharp staccatos. You can watch his kinetic keyboarding on by searching for “young Shostakovich.” Shostakovich was an even greater composer, and you can enjoy one of his finest works when the Craftsbury Chamber Players present his Piano Quintet in G minor, Opus 57, on July 15 and 16. Monica Ohuchi will be at the piano. Ohuchi captured first prize at the Chinese International Piano Competition when she was only five. She is also the only two-time national champion of the Music Teacher ’s National Association Piano Competition. Expect Shostakovich-like skill and piano pyrotechnics. The Quintet is a model of grandeur and clarity. Shostakovich wrote the work in 1940 at the request of a string quartet that wanted to play with him. At the time, most of Europe was en-

TIME CAPSULE—A view of Main Street in Middlebury during the early 1920s looking east to the Middlebury Congregational Church. Surprisingly, when compared to 2009, this downtown streetscape shows few changes: Note the large curbside elm trees, a scarcity of automobiles, and a lone horsedrawn carriage crossing the street in front of the site of today’s post office.

gulfed in war, and the Soviet Union was precariously protected by a nonaggression agreement entered into by Hitler and Stalin. Hitler would soon break the pact. Shostakovich worried not only about imminent war, but about Stalin himself. Four years earlier, the Soviet dictator had walked out of a performance of a Shostakovich opera that Pravda branded “Muddle Instead of Music.” Those who incurred Stalin’s wrath, politically or culturally, did not last long. Shostakovich need not have been nervous. The five-part Quintet was an enormous success and won the Stalin Prize in 1941. Pravda praised the composition for its “depth and magnificence.” From its Bachian Prelude, through the unrestrained, almost-humorous mid-point Scherzo, to the triumphant Finale, the Quintet is, in the words of famed violinist Rostislav Dubinsky, “the last ray of light before the future sank into a dark gloom.” The first of six summer Craftsbury Chamber Players concerts will take place in the University of Vermont Recital Hall on July 15 at 8 pm. Haydn’s Trio in E Major, H 15/28, and Martinu’s Duo No. 2 for Violin and Viola round out the premiere program.

Defending the board

The Hub To the Editor: Thank you Eagle writer Alice Dubentesky for the interest and attention you’ve given the Hub. It was fun to hang out with you and exciting to read your article. We’re grateful for the opportunity you provided us to connect with the community. It means a lot to us. James Lockridge Director The Hub Teen Center & Skatepark Bristol

ANESU/MAUHS Board follies To the Editor: It looks like the chairman of the board and superintendant as well as the rest of the school board members have egg on their faces. This could have all been avoided if you, the chair and superintendent had come forth when it first happened, which appears to be quite some time ago. Dick Merrill has been badgered on the street for weeks about this embezzlement. It gets annoying after awhile. It’s only because he wants no part of this problem, which has been kept from the public for so long and why has it been kept secret all this time? This shows what kind of members you selected, when as a group they do not get together, only let these two people tell them what they want. I am sure it would not have taken the Police this long if this had been reported right away. I went to the last elementary school board meeting and a Mt. Abe member thought they would be interested in one of the things being discussed at Mt. Abe, but when the chairperson started to ask questions, the superintendent shut him off and changed the subject. I have also been to a lot of meetings at the high school as well and a lot of you other tax payers and when you asked questions, you did not get any answers and just got fluffed off also. This is still going on with this administration to this day and the board members are letting this happen. This is not the way it is supposed to be. Our kids all deserve much better than this. We all need to get together and get a new administration. I do not want to keep paying her high salary and keep lining her pockets with my tax dollars. Every year the school budget keeps going up and passed with no audit. This has to tell the rest of us something about the way the school is being run. Charlotte Delisle Bristol

To the Editor: Over the past month there have been a series of letters to the editor disparaging the MAUHS School Board as a body, the chair individually and the superintendent of schools. We have been accused of withholding information from the public. At this time, all we can say is that there is a criminal investigation on going. The Vermont State Police is doing a thorough investigation until the investigation is completed so as to not jeopardize the case. We are doing our best to comply with out attorney’s advbice. Be assured that as soon as charges are filed and as soon as we can legally and responsibily speak publicly about the investigation, we will.

Bummer, man To the Editor: The answer to our economic problem is this: We must methodically manage an orderly reduction in our standard of living. We have lived beyond our means, and while there are ways to alleviate this reduction which I will touch on later - let me explain to you just how sobering events really are. A September 2008 Harvard Business Review article reported that “in 1980, the total value of global financial assets was roughly equal to world gross domestic product (GDP).” In 2007, these same financial assets increased to 356 percent of world GDP; most of the increase coming from private and government debt. According to the Financial Times, “the ratio of U.S. public and private debt to GDP reached 358 percent in the third quarter of 2008.” The previous all-time high of 300% was reached in 1933, during the Great Depression. U.S. mortgages and credit-card debt in 2008 totaled 123 percent of aftertax income compared to just 83 percent in 1995. What are the implications of these numbers? Simply put, there is not enough money – by consumers, families, businesses or governments - to back up all this debt. We’re not in the midst of a “normal” recession, which is part of our business cycle. We’re going through a massive deleveraging process, meaning we’re attempting to reduce this debt. Much of this will occur through bankruptcy.There are many in

SATURDAY June 6, 2009 Vermont who don’t understand these changing economic storm clouds and wish to hark back on tired solutions from an era that has past. State Sen. Doug Racine, in a letter to a local newspaper is one such Vermonter. “A look back to 1991 provides a roadmap on how to face today’s challenges,” writes Racine, as he calls for increasing taxes. Mohamed El-Erian, CEO of Pimco (the world’s largest bond fund) and former President of Harvard’s endowment fund recently stated that the markets [and world] are on a volatile journey to a “new normal.” Mr. El-Erian is one of the most sought after economic thinkers. This “new normal” includes much slower economic growth, increased deficits, greater geo-political risk and the “monetization” (i.e. printing of money) of U.S. debt by our Federal Reserve Bank. Interest rates will rise; the U.S. dollar will fall. Vermont’s economic problems and this “new normal” cannot be solved by the old, knee-jerk reactions of Senator Racine and his ilk by raising taxes on an already highly taxed and regulated Vermont economy. It is wishful, lazy and cowardly thinking that speaks to the kind of entrenched thought and special interests that underlies Montpelier. Ours is a spending, regulatory and growth problem, not a revenue problem. Ours is a problem of freedom. In what economists call a negative feedback loop, as increases in land-use regulations, taxes and spending are enacted with no sustainable funding source; more businesses contract, decide never to locate to Vermont or flee, shrinking the tax base. Montpelier raises taxes again and the cycle repeats itself.During this decade, Vermont government and education spending rose roughly 70 percent, while Vermont private-sector job growth rose 0 percent. It is long past time to close small, inefficient schools, drastically consolidate school districts and dramatically reform state government. A society cannot consume and not produce. Vermont’s impoverished and needy are largely the making of our legislature’s policies. Dorothy Canfield Fisher (18791958), writing about Vermont’s 1778 motto of “Freedom and Unity” stated: “The Vermont idea grapples energetically with the basic problem of human conduct – how to reconcile the needs of the group, of which every man or woman is a member, with the craving for individual freedom to be what he really is." “…With the craving for individual freedom to be what he really is.” This, my fellow Vermonters, is what Montpelier’s policies increasingly deprives its citizens of, as it becomes evermore difficult to prosper and grow in an environment that is increasingly hostile to economic freedom, property rights and individual liberties.

It’s not all grim news in Montpelier I

am writing this article a day before the legislature returns to Montpelier to decide on a budget for the State of Vermont. Last week, on my own, I went to the hearings in Montpelier and listened to the people who came to speak and be heard. We have heard and many know firsthand about the unprecedented financial position we are in. I believe it is our role, as stewards of Vermont, to protect our environment and offer high-quality education to our most valuable resources, children. We must have available and affordable health care for all, and assist large and small businesses, including agriculture, to thrive. Can we do this and balance our budget in this financial climate? I believe we can. I believe it takes an approach in which compromises are made and both long and short -term goals come into play. It is not a situation that gets “fixed” by transferring the burden to property taxes. I have been and will continue to work to lessen the burden on property owners. When you read this, we will have a budget and I will do my best to have it be as fair as possible to all Vermonters – no easy task! All is not grim. Some of the legislation that was passed this session will work toward the goals of creating jobs and stimulating the economy while fostering growth for Vermont’s employers. By investing wisely and creating strategic and innovative policies, Vermont’s employers stand to leverage small investments into $175 - $200 million worth of economic activity. This is not easy to accomplish especially when times are tight. We were able to do this by taking a variety of forward-thinking and strategic set of measures that I have outlined: Green Jobs. We invested $37 million of federal government ARRA assistance into a Clean Energy Fund. These funds will leverage close to $150 million in new jobs and economic activities that will create new markets and opportunities for employers in helping boost the green economy. Seed Capital. We also invested $3.5 of state funds into a seed capital fund and other loan programs to promote small businesses and those ready for their next stage of growth. Buy Local Movement. We created a Farm-to-Plate Investment Program that will identify links between farmers and consumers, and then provide matching grants and technical assistance to build the missing infrastructure. The end result will be more jobs and capacity for more storage capacity, slaughter facilities, marketing support, distribution networks, etc. Stronger Co-ops. Co-ops are great for employee ownership, cooperation and sustaining jobs, and have a prosocial business mission. But it's often hard for them to raise mo ney since they rely on members. With H.109, we created a new form of business called limited coops that will allow them to attract outside investors as a way to raise equity but still retain control for the non-investors.

Stronger Car Dealerships. Vermont’s car dealers have been at the mercy at the big auto makers for far too long. A new law will give them the ability to sell more than one brand of car, giving consumers more choices, and helping save many dealers from bankruptcy. Bolstering Tourism. As the Great Recession continues to take its toll, people will be cutting back. That means that rather than taking extravagant international adventures, they’ll find relaxation closer to home. That bodes well for Vermont vacationing. We are seizing upon that opportunity by investing an additional $600,000 in attracting tourism and conventions to Vermont. Generate New Income for Vermont by allowing the creation of what we are calling e-corporations. Vermont made national headlines last year when we passed a House-initiated program to allow for incorporation of businesses that exist without having physical locations. Our next step is to create clear regulations that enable companies to build software platforms that will enable future ecompanies to take advantage of this new opportunity. Protection = Commerce. It may not be exciting to the average Vermonter, but insurance is big business in Vermont. Vermont boasts the strongest insurance business nationally in many categories, including captive insurance. We strengthened their ability to attract even more business, and also protected senior citizens from fraud and shady dealings. Importantly, that helps not only them, but the lawyers and insurance companies who will only work in safe environments. This will bolster these businesses in Vermont and create jobs. I hope this gives you a picture of some of our good work this session – work that benefits all Vermonters. I20can be reached at 985-8515 or at We could always arrange to meet in person if there are concerns and ideas that you would like to share. Joan Lenes is the Representative for Chittenden County, District 5-2 in Vermont. Her column appears regularly in the The Eagle.

When a few downtown Vergennes merchants and community boosters kicked around the idea of holding a fun event at the base of Otter Creek Falls, below the downtown bridge, it got a big thumbs up. The result of the brainstorming session turned into the upcoming first annual Otter Creek Basin Bash. Vergennes is certainly no stranger to grand, annual outdoor events. Vergennes Days in August and Vergennes French Heritage Days in July are two yearly events that have taken off in recent years. And don’t forget downtown Vergennes Strawberry Festival. So, are we ready for another Vergennes annual event? Sure, why not. This new outing is set in the watery basin below the falls—near the site where Master Commandant/Commodore Thomas MacDonough’s invincible fleet of sailing ships were built and later won the lakeside phase of the Battle of Plattsburgh during the War of 1812. MacDonough's big victory stopped the British offensive in its tracks. This year ’s new festival is not totally about history. It’s about doing fun things on or near the water—like learning about Vermontish folk craft, blacksmithing, Otter Creek’s rascals and rogues, fishing, waterfowl, street dancing, ice cutting and ice houses, street theater, knives, boatbuilding, wildlife, jazz, and—did I leave anything out?—oh, yeah, getting out of your old rut to meet new friends or say howdy to friendly neighbors.

Guest Viewpoint

Italian holy man—a profound mystery O

ne of the most famous and astounding holy men of the 20th century, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, was born Francesco Forgione in 1887 to a destitute but pious couple in southern Italy. The Roman Catholic saint was named in honor of St. Francis of Assisi and even as a small boy wanted to become a Franciscan friar. He was so sensitive that, in spite of his own playful and humorous nature, he refused to play with other boys when they used foul language. There are many books about Pio; here are the best ones: “Padre Pio: The True Story”, Bernard Ruffin's biog-

Mountain View Maintenance


raphy, and “Padre Pio: Man of Hope”, Renzo Allegri's shorter portrait. Even if the word hagiography tends to scare you off, these books will draw you in and fill you with warmth, reminding you that sanctity means love and joy as well as sacrifice. It may also mean enduring horrible lies. At the age of 16, Francesco entered a Franciscan (Capuchin, to be exact) monastery as a novice, where he was given the name Pio. The monastery's regimen was, to put it mildly, severe: much prayer, difficult studies, physical labor carried out in silence, skimpy meals, little recreation (half an hour daily), strict rules, rough and ill-fitting clothing (a monk's habit over a coarse wool undershirt, with only sandals for the feet), no heating or air conditioning. The novices sometimes had to eat their meals while kneeling, with frequent fasts as well. They were made to sleep flat on their backs (on wooden beds with mattresses filled with corn husks), their arms crossed over their chests. They were required to sleep motionless, and at midnight were awakened for more than an hour of religious exercises, after which it was often hard to get back to sleep. This first-year regimen made basic training in the U.S. Marine Corps seem a life of comparative ease and luxury. And this sketch omits some features of that daunting regimen, which weeded out many young men whose commitment to the religious life was less than total. But Pio, in his zeal, never complained, and in fact often imposed further rigors on himself. He embraced suffering. And he received it in abundance. As a young priest, Pio was the recipient of a rare and miraculous, but painful, gift: the stigmata, or the five wounds of Christ. He bore

them for the next 50 years, losing a cup of blood every day. They finally vanished, leaving no scars, when his death was imminent in 1968. In the meantime, he exercised many other spiritual gifts: prophecy, the odor of sanctity (a fragrance of roses and violets), the power of bilocation (appearing in two or even three places at once), the ability to read souls, and visions of Jesus and Mary as he celebrated his morning Mass. I once spoke to an old Italian woman in Rome who told me, in broken English, that she and her sister had on one occasion gone to Pio for confession; he was able to remind them of sins they had forgotten to mention! Many others have recounted similar experiences of his supernatural gifts. Though such miraculous acts seemed almost routine for him, his demeanor was unassuming, and in most respects he impressed others as an ordinary humble friar with an impish streak. Pio was also subject to hyperthermia—fevers reaching as high as 120 degrees, the highest in medical history. A temperature of 109 degrees usually means certain death, but Pio seemed to suffer no ill effects and he recovered quickly. He performed countless acts of healing. One of the most remarkable was that of Gemma di Giorgio, a little girl who was born blind, with no pupils in her eyes. Pio cured her, giving her perfect vision for the remainder of her life. Doctors were stupefied to find her eyesight flawless by every test though she still had no pupils. And yet Pio had bitter enemies inside the Catholic Church. He was officially condemned for most of his life. He bore it all patiently and never complained or recriminated. Among Pio's admirers was a young Polish priest, Karol Wotyla, late Pope John Paul II. Legend has it that when they met in the 1960s, Pio recognized him as a future pope. Be that as it may, John Paul II later had the joy of proclaiming Pio a canonized saint of the Catholic Church.

Abbey Pond: Nature’s beauty close to home

By Angela DeBlasio Abbey Pond Trail is a perfect escape from the stresses of today’s bad news. Personally, I can’t wait to get outside and commune with nature; Abbey Pond Trail in Addison County is my ideal place to enjoy nature’s local beauty. My friend Karen Gilmore accompanied me on a recent hike to this popular pond. It’s a four-mile roundtrip hike from the trailhead to Abbey Pond, an important bird nesting area. To get there from the junction of Route s116 and 125 in East Middlebury, take 116 north 2.3 miles to a sign for the Abbey Pond Trail. Turn right on a gravel road that leads 0.3 miles to the trailhead. There is plenty of parking spaces available. The Abbey Pond area is actually on a mountaintop flat, and it’s an ecologically rich locale with marshes and cascades. The foot-only trail climbs 1,200 feet from the trailhead to the pond. At the start at the trailhead sign it’s easy for novice hikers to get discouraged. While the beginning is disappointing visually, the trail soon leads up into the woods and to a welcome change of scenery. At this point, only 0.2 miles from the trailhead, a bridge spans the outlet brook of Abbey Pond. By foot, it takes scarcely five minutes to reach the brook. Several beautiful but small cascades grace the brook above and below the bridge. Be sure to explore the area completely. It’s a beautiful spot. The first third of this hike is the most enjoyable. There are large boulders that can be scaled if you’re so inclined, uprooted trees, and large tree limbs across the trail to climb over or crawl underneath—many of these fallen limbs may be evidence of recent microbursts or the Ice Storm of 1997. The trail follows the stream and then crosses back over it. You will follow the outlet stream of Abbey Pond. Be prepared to cross the streams, some of which you will have to wade through. After that, it's basically a good cardio workout up the incline with the same views of the same trees. It

takes about 1.5 hours up this steady incline. It’s rocky, so be careful. For about 0.5

miles it is a calm, even walk—without hills—and so you can rest from the climb

a bit. However, Karen and I hiked this trail during a wet time, so the trail was muddy;




my foot came out of my poorly secured walking shoe a few times. Tread softly on the trail. Watch where you step—we came across a blue robin’s egg that had fallen from a nest. At a leisurely pace, it takes about one hour to return to the trailhead parking lot. If

you need more information, consult a Vermont hiking guide resource such as “The Day Hiker ’s Guide to Vermont”. On a warm day, be prepared and bring lots of water since the local stream and pond water is not potable without boiling it first.

CVU split in Burlington earning first win on last game of the season By Frederick Pockette The Champlain Valley Union High School Redhawks traveled north last Saturday to complete their regular season with a double header against two separate teams. The Redhawks started the day by falling to 1-14 after losing their first game to the Burlington Seahorses 7-1. Catherine Coulombe went 2-for-2 with a double and Eileen Gomez also rapped out a pair of hits for the Seahorses, who finished their regular season at 6-10 Holly Bachilas singled and scored while Cayla McCarthy took the loss for CVU. The Redhawks however finished what was a disappointing season on a high note by defeating the South Burlington Rebels 10-7 in their second game last Saturday, and their final game of the year. Heather McLaughlin and Susan Parmelee recorded three hits apiece to lead the CVU offense, while Anna Supple picked up a complete-game win with three strikeouts. The Redhawks end their year at 2-14, while South Burlington finishes up at 1-15. There were a lot of other teams busy last weekend, finishing up their schedules and trying to improve their playoff seedings. Mount Abraham Eagles and Vergennes Commodores were

in action last Friday and Saturday. The Mount Abraham Eagles split two home games to finish the year at 10-6, while the Commodores suffered back-to-back shutouts on the road to finish 3-13. Last Friday night, in Bristol, Rachel Nelson tossed a fivehit shutout with six strikeouts to lead the North Country Falcons to a 7-0 win over the hometown Eagles. Nelson not only pitched well, but did her share at the plate too going 2-for4 with a double. Miranda Roberts added a two-run single and Chelsea Bingham added another pair of hits and scored twice for the Falcons, who improved to 8-7 with the win. Julia Wilkinson went 3-for-3 at the plate for Mount Abe, and Julia Wilkinson took the loss despite her ten strikeout performance. But the Eagles bounced back on Saturday to finish the regular season in a positive way. Trailing 5-4 going into the bottom of the seventh against the Milton Yellowjackets the Eagles scored twice to pull out a 5-4 win. The winning run scored when Kristen Ouellette worked a bases loaded walk off losing pitcher Danielle Hurley. Laura Livingston went two-for-three at the plate with a double, two RBIs and a run scored to pace the Eagles offense. Hurley led Milton in defeat by working three walks and scoring twice.

Milton finished their regular season dead even at 8-8. On Friday night in Randolph Ghosts hurler Arielle Connolly threw a two-hit shutout at the visiting Vergennes Commodore. In her seven innings of work Connolly struck out 16 batters and behind her efforts the Ghosts cruised to an 80 win. Vergennes starter Katie Lurles allowed just four hits, but suffered from poor fielding from her teammates and a massive lack of offensive support. One of the Commodores two hits was a double off the bat of Sam Flynn. Randolph finishes the regular season at 10-6. Things didn’t get much better for the Commodores offense last Saturday in Duxbury. This time it was Ashley Sweet of Harwood’s turn to throw a two-hit shutout at the Commodores. She was matched though by Commodore’s pitcher Katie Curler who tossed a complete game one-hitter. Unfortunately for Vergennes the Highlanders managed to manufacture four runs despite having just the one hit and pulled out a 4-0 win. Harwood, who finishes the regular season at 14-2 are expected draw the number two seed in the upcoming Division II tournament. Margy Kerschner and Alyssa Kilburn had singles for the Commodores, who finish the year at 3-13.

The Middlebury Tigers girl’s softball team improved to 96 last Saturday when they defeated 9-1 in South Burlington. Mallory James recorded two hits, including a triple, and scored three runs for Middlebury, but the Tigers real story was winning pitcher Jessica Gipson. On the mound Gipson allowed just one run on five hits, while striking out seven to earn the win, but she didn’t stop there. At the plate Gipson drove in a pair of runs and scored herself. Amber Rockwood belted a run scoring double in the losing effort for Rice.

Cooper Quenneville matched Sargent’s five points in reverse order with two goals and three assists.

Lauren Mihan scored six goals and one assist while Crystal King added four goals and two assists to carry South Burlington past the Redhawks, 21-10. Brittany LeClair, Haleigh Gill, Alex Johnson and Sydney Stevens added two goals each while Molly Higgins, Natalie Wimett and Alyssa Guyette contributed single goals to the Rebels offensive barrage.. Gillian Shelley had a good day for CVU netting five goals on the day. Lizzy Betz sadded a pair while Emily Shaw, Erika Gobeille and Amanda Kinneston scored one each to round out the Redhawks scoring. In the net Amanda Lacallaide and Micki Gobeille combined efforts yielded six saves for Champlain Valley.

Commodores Split Both the Mount Abraham Eagles and Vergennes Commodores finished up their varsity baseball season by playing back-to-back days last Friday and Saturday. The Commodores split their two games against Randolph and Harwood to finish 9-7 on the year. The Eagles however swept their two against North Country and Milton, having little trouble with either to finish up at an impressive 13-3. The Eagles began with a 15-0, six inning trouncing of the North Country Falcons in Bristol last Friday night. Sean Marcelle and Ben Capasso led the Eagles offense. Marcelle rapped out three hits, scored three runs and drove in two more, while Capasso had two hits and two RBIs for the Eagles. Mount Abe also got a solo homerun from Micky O’Connor, but the real story was winning pitcher Kyle Kayhart. Kayhart threw a one hit shutout with six strike outs at the 015 Falcons.

The Eagles followed that win up with an 11-4 regular season finale win over the Milton Yellow Jackets at home last Saturday. Behind a Steve Patterson grand-slam the Eagles rode a seven run fourth inning to the seven run win. Even though Patterson added another hit Winning pitcher Sean Marcelle was the real offensive star. Marcelle was a perfect four-for-four at the plate with three runs scored. Dean Butler rapped out another three hits for the victorious Eagles. Marcelle pitched six innings to pick up the win. O’Connor finished the job by pitching the seventh. Alex Learned collected three hits and drove in one while Nick Ferguson took the loss for Milton. The Commodores dropped their Friday night game, losing at Randolph to the Ghosts 13-9. Damon Dyer had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in three runs to lead the Ghosts to the four run win. Dustin Brassard smashed a pair of hits and drove in three runs while Nick Bent, Tyler LaFreniere and Justin Tilton matched Brassard’s two hits. Cam Curler had three hits, including a double, and Adam Flyn had two hits in defeat for Vergennes. The Commodores turned things around last Saturday though when both Logan Williams and Adam Flynn went three-for-four at the plate to lead Vergennes to an 8-4 win over Harwood, in Duxbury. Williams, who also scored three runs, had a double and a homer included in his three hits. Cameron Brooks turned in a fine plate performance too, going 2-for-4 on the day. Collin Curler was the winning pitcher for Vergennes In his seven innings of work Curler gave up four runs on 11 hits while recording five strikeouts. Harwood fell to 9-6 with the loss. The Middlebury Tigers ended their regular season at 3-13, dropping their final game in a heart breaking 12-11 loss to Rice last Saturday in Burlington. Middlebury held an 11-9 lead going into the bottom of the seventh only to surrender three runs to the hometown Green Knights and suffer the walk off loss. Devon Hathaway went 3-for-4 and drove in three runs, including the game winner to lead Rice’s potent offensive attack. Chris McCormick also went 3-for-4 and scored the tying run for the Green Knights, who complete their regular season at 9-7. Seth Delorme belted a three-run single for Middlebury and Craig Burt smashed a two-run homer while Jimmy Danyow suffered the loss in relief. Like the Tigers the Champlain Valley Union Redhawks blew a 4-3 lead in the seventh inning to suffer a 5-4 walk off defeat at the hands of the South Burlington Rebels. Trailing 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh Austin Fay blasted a triple scoring Ethan Martin to tie the game at 4-4. Andrew Tranmer then singled in Fay, giving the hometown Rebels the 5-4 walk off win. Andrew Nick led CVU’s offense with two hits while Alex Hopkins suffered the loss on the mound.
