Social Security, Medicare under assault



There are proposals now being considered by Congr ess right now that would make harmful cuts to Medicar e and Social Security as part of a deal to pay the nation’s bills. These pr oposals would place arbitrary limits on federal spending er quiring cuts that could dramatically increase health care costs for today’s seniors (age 55 and over), thr eaten their access to doctors, hospitals and nursing homes, and r educe the benefit checks they r ely on to pay their bills. It’s as straightforward as that. We’re not just talking about budget numbers here. We’re talking about action by Congress that will have a disastrous ef fect on r eal people! Her e’s something else that’s straightforwar d: AARP will do everything in our power to prevent Congress from these making harmful cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Of course Congr ess needs to make some tough choices to addr ess our large and gr owing debt -- but not by hurting today’s seniors and futur e r etirees. What lawmakers need to do is start making the right decisions about our nation’s futur e priorities. At the top of these priorities must be the health and financial security of older

Americans. There’s a better way to r educe the deficit: Congress should begin by cutting wasteful government spending and closing tax loopholes and special interest tax br eaks for companies that make billions of dollars in pr ofits, but pay little or no taxes – before considering harmful cuts to programs that are a lifeline to millions of older Americans. Tax breaks and loopholes cost the federal g overnment a n e stimated $ 1 t rillion each year. And, per haps most important, we need to tackle ever -rising health car e costs. And if we really want to reduce health care costs, Medicare should not be singled out. We need to improve the way we deliver health care in Medicare and throughout the entire system – including a greater focus on pr evention, better car e coor dination for people with chr onic illnesses, and incentives that r eward doctors and hospitals for providing high quality care, not seeing the most patients or r unning the most tests. Vermont has taken some important steps in this dir ection and leads the nation in addr essing both health care cost control and access for all. Other steps we can take to r educe Medicare costs ar e cracking down on

costly hospital r eadmissions, overbilling by pr oviders, and standing up to the drug companies, who are costing Medicare billions of dollars in high priced dr ugs and by pr eventing less costly generic dr ugs fr om coming to market. And, let’s be clear: Social Security did not cause our nation’s budget pr oblem, and Social Security should not be weakened to fix it. There is no immediate crisis. Social Security can pay 100 percent of benefits for the next 25 years. And with modest, gradual, changes, Social Security can stay strong for decades afte r t hat. In fact, the only “crisis” on the horizon is what Congress may do to Medicar e and Social Security benefits right now as they attempt to r each a deal to pay the nation’s debts. AARP’s members have worked their entire lives to earn their Medicar e and Social Security benefits. That’s why we’re going to keep fighting to stop Congress from making a deal to pay the nation’s bills that includes harmful cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Greg Marchildon AARP Vermont

Rep. Welch calls for end to ethanol subsidies By Lou Varricchio m CASTLETON — U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D) visited the Castleton area June 9 to address the impact of U.S.

ethanol subsidies on the marine and outdoor r ecreation industry in Vermont and beyond. The state’s sole Congressman held a brief news conference along the waterfront to discuss the issue and call an end to subsidies. Welch joined V ermont sportsmen and several local small business owners at Woodard Marine, a boat dealership at the south end

Taking flight in Middlebury Exhibit celebrates birds on the wing

By Lou Varricchio m MIDDLEBURY — For thousands of years, humans dreamed of flying, but it wasn’t until the Wright Brothers’ daring attempt at Kitty Hawk that humans could finally see their world from the perspective of birds. Now a new exhibit on Merchants Row in downtown Middlebury celebrates our feather ed friends and their evolutionary advantage of natural flight. “Taking Flight” is on display at Town Hall Theater ’s Jackson Gallery and depicts birds in various media. Behind the winged works on display ar e several well known, and lesser known, Vermont artists—Susan Raber Bray , Ray Hudson, Carol E. S. MacDonald, Liza Myers, Gary Starr, and Adelaide Tyrol. Two Addison County artists showing at the gallery are worth noting. Gary Starr of W eybridge likes to work with basswood and he’s shaped this er spected material into many birds—local and for eign. He credits his father's influence in his art and r espects the New England tradition of crafting exquisite hunting decoys. Middlebury artist Ray Hudson pr ovides her view of bir ds thr ough a series of unique woodblock prints. Hudson said that a carved block becomes her br ush and canvas—each print has a life of its own. Downtown Middlebury’s soaring exhibit ends this Sunday, June 19. The gallery, on Mer chants Row, is open noon – 5 p.m.

of Lake Bomoseen, to call for an end to ethanol subsidies. At the dockside news conference, Welch said the subsidies cost taxpayers $6 billion annually, drive up food prices and cause damage to small engines such as those used in boats, motor cycles and lawnmowers. “It simply doesn't make sense for taxpayers to continue subsidizing a matur e and pr ofitable industry, especially at a time when Congressional leaders ar e pr oposing drastic cuts in fuel assistance, student loans, high speed rail and Medicare,” Welch said. "I'm also hearing fr om Vermonters t hat e thanol i s d amaging the engines to boats, chainsaws and lawnmowers. It is high time we end this unnecessary subsidy.” According to W elch, federal subsidies to the ethanol industry curr ently exist in three forms: a $.045 per gallon t ax c redit, a p rotective import tariff of $0.54 per gallon and a r enewable ener gy

fuel mandate, which r equires the blending of ethanol and other biodiesel in U.S. transpor tation fuel. These subsidies r emain in place despite a General Accountability Of fice r eport that questioned the need to subsidize this mature industry “Ethanol means that peo-

ple who have the older equipment spend more money to maintain it,” said Barbara W oodard, owner of Woodard Marine, a boat dealership on Lake Bomoseen. “ This i s o ne m ore barrier for families that want to head out and enjoy the water.” Welch said he is working

in Congress to tackle ethanol subsidies. He is a co-sponsor of the Repeal Ethanol Subsidies Today Act (H.R. 1 188), which would terminate subsidies to the industry. He has also written to House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R) urging him to allow a vote in the House on re pealing these subsidies.

Sen. Delinquent Taxes T

here’s a little problem of playing fast and lose with basic civic duties under Vermont’s Golden Dome. Meet Vermont State Senate President John Campbell (D) of Windsor County. He owed $5,329 in unpaid property taxes until a news story shamed the lawman into paying his overdue tax bill. The senator was unavailable for comment but seemed to recognize his civic duty only after the spotlight of the free press was turned on him for all to see. Since the flap, Sen. Campbell’s 2,788square-foot Quechee McMansion has been placed on a list of Windsor County properties that are expected to be sold this week. The senator, now serving his sixth term in Montpelier, missed a $5,329 tax payment that was due four months ago. “When I’m in the Legislature, my cash flow is really tight and I can’t be out there billing,” the attorney senator told the Burlington Free Press June 7. Please cue the violins. It appears Sen. Campbell isn’t too different from the rest of us working stiffs— that is, it appears he’s having a tough time paying his taxes, too. However, in the senator ’s case, he can actually do something about it rather than just complain like most Vermonters—he can help enact legislation that eases the burden of excessive state taxation (and put some real meaning behind representation, too). Not too long ago, Sen. Campbell, un-

der the direction of Gov. Shumlin, said Vermont’s ballooning education expenditure—all $1.4 billion of it—is off limits for trimming by the state’s Blue Ribbon Tax Commission. By supporting the governor, the senator helped increase property taxes by reducing, by $23 million, money that was to go to the state education fund. Sen. Campbell also said recently that Progressive icon Anthony Pollina’s suggestion of laying a special tax upon the wealthiest of Vermonters “has merit.” A friend of rich and poor alike, I’d say. Now with the senator ’s help, Gov. Shumlin has become the first Vermont governor —since the enactment of Act 68—to increase the state’s property tax. That might be an accomplishment to add to your legislative resume in North Dakota or Wyoming where there are balanced state budgets to upend, except that it’s business-as-usual in spendthrift Montpelier. Of course, Sen. Campbell had a chance to make real hope and change in Vermont’s tax law earlier this year. Instead, he chose not to pay his property taxes (at least until the facts appeared in black and white newsprint) and instead chose to raise taxes on the rest of us. Meanwhile, I grumble and keep paying my taxes and Windsor County folks keep reelecting Sen. Campbell. Lou Varricchio

n poker, there are rules which are observed by the players. In politics (verbal and otherwise) there aren’t. Any statement which might convince the unwary is ok, factual or not, and any facts which might not, can be suppressed. It’s as if you could paint extra pips (or paint over them) in the right colors on your cards so as to get the three-of-akind which, yes, beats two pair. Herewith your Humble Scribe offers a trio of recent examples for reader evaluation as to veracity, entirety, and even deniability. All were taken from a recent issue of one of Vermont’s three major daily newspapers. Identifications of publication and reporters are redacted here for compassionate reasons. One is a discussion of the “power plant” which doesn’t generate power (its role is to provide comfort space heating for the bureaucratic occupants of the some of the State-Street office buildings in Montpelier) which was built between 120 state and the Winooski River at the time of the first oilprice crisis 40 years ago. Then, we were told it would burn only wood chips, but

The Land of Enchantment Part 2


rasing a 2.5-hour-long layover by walking the mile-long terminal four times, at Dulles Airport, I see groups of people, families, newlyweds, older married couples, a few members of the military, business associates, sports teams, young lovers, and many others, all together, but seemingly uninterested in one another, engaged mostly with themselves. One person might reluctantly rely on a member of their group to watch their gear during a bathroom break, but that’s about the extent of obvious human connection I witness. Even people with babies act a tiny bit put-off for having to be bothered with the disruptive tendencies of their infant, who is trying his or her darndest to steal its parents’ attention away from the latest entertaining friggin flood, that is gushing from a few of the 10 TVs hanging in the bar across the way. Airport designers must think we think multiple TVs make us feel at home. Pulling luggage through the terminal is done chin up, looking, way far down ahead for a gate marker, or a TV, or an easy-toread arrivals/departures, display board — looking anywhere but at another human being. I’m the only dink walking for exercise at one of the busiest airports in the world, making eye contact; and I find it odd when no one returns eye contact, or nods a hello. I feel like a goof nodding friendly-like to a flight attendant or pilot. I’m at their work place, I respect their environs, I’m a client, isn’t it natural I’d acknowledge them if only by a nod? And what the Cripes do I get in return? A safe flight to my sister’s in New Mexico, which of course is what I paid for, and all I really need. But no nod. I won’t even nod off on the flight. The friendly smile I offer the people during my long airport walk seems to be unwanted and unwelcome. They’d rather peer at the skinny, photo-shopped bathing suit bedecked starlets, who stare back from the covers of magazines at Hudson News. Do the glossy starlets offer friendship and understanding that a smile from me can’t? Pre-boarding sex and titillation from the magazine racks at Hudson News. It’s all part of the plan to entertain us, to keep our minds off our travels, and make us feel loved. Thank god for Hudson News and six-pack Oreos.

now, I’ve just learned, it burns wood chips and –ugh—oil, and therefore must be removed and replaced with one burning only wood chips. Those newly arrived in Vermont who fled New York City will recognize the model for the proposed new “district energy system” whereby the new no-fossilfuel furnace will pipe under-street heat and hot water to buyers throughout Montpelier, just as Con Ed did and does in Gotham to this day. The ‘70s-era “Dig We Must…” street barricades are doubtless still available for re-use. The $19 million project will, we read, be local-vore (the furnaces will consume locally harvested wood, not imported oil) and will “…reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% in 20 years.” Seemingly impressive, but not what my Hoyle’s rule book says. An engineering reference shows that oil burning produces .26 kilograms of CO 2 per kilowatt-hour of energy produced, while wood burning produces .39kg/kwh. I think .39 is 50 percent higher than .26. A note on the Engineering Toolbox website also offers a convenient new rule: you can count wood for zero emissions if you plant a tree for each one you burn. (Of course, if you plant trees, burn metallic See HARRIS page 14

More starlets and many experts gibbering information from inside TV sets dangling from ceilings in grubby, nouvea-riche- rec-room quality bars, help we plane passengers understand how to eat better, think better, look better, communicate better, have sex better, organize better, work better, work-out better, relax better, garden better, understand the new health-care system better, be better, feel better, and be better informed. And, the experts, like the magazine starlets, do it all without judging us. I’m not like the starlets or TV people. I’m judgmental. I wouldn’t have sex with you if you paid me ‘cause of somethin’ or another that isn’t quite right about you. I’m also not nearly as smart at the starlets and TV people. I can’t tell you what the latest greatest car seat is, and I can’t tell you the new health care system will actually work better for most of us, or what it will cost you, and I can’t tell you how to prepare a four-course summer meal that will feed 12. I can’t tell you any of that. But I can nod you a hello. Remember in the early 1970s how sterile and uninviting modern America looked when represented on TV or in a movie? Well the future has arrived, and killing time at Dulles Airport, I’m a miniature hard plastic figure standing alone on a cardboard prototype of a modern airport. The old Vermont farmer won a free train ticket to New York City by being the third caller into his local radio station. When he got back, the radio announcer called him. “Old Joe, how was New York City?” The old farmer answered, “I don’t know. There was so much going on at the depot, I never did see the village.” There is so much going on at the depot, we’re all just too used to it.

Sci-fi theme for theater member drive MIDDLEBURY — Apparently Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater is known throughout the galaxy, as aliens recently crash-landed into the theater ’s bell tower on their way to see a show. THT is known for cr eating wildly imaginative membership drives. Earlier drives featured King Kong climbing the side of the building (“Be Part of Something Big!”) and a psychedelic VW bus (“Expand Your Mind!”) The 2011-12 drive has a 50s science-fiction flavor, and features the slogan “Aliens demand: Take me to your theater!” “We try to put the fun in fund-rais-

ing,” said THT executive director Douglas Anderson, who appeared in the local Memorial Day parade as an alien in a green body suit. “It’s just a fact of life that non-pr ofit arts or ganizations depend on memberships to survive. Why not make the process as fun as possible?” The theme carries over to the theater ’s summer offerings. A film series, titled Close Encounters on Merchants Row, will feature some of the best science fiction films ever made: E.T. (June 23), “It Came Fr om Outer Space (Aug. 18), and “Close Encounters

of the Third Kind” (Sept. 1). Tickets for the films, shown on THT’s big scr een, are only $3. The drive’s br ochure is a masterful recreation of a cheap 1950s sci-fi magazine, with flying saucers hovering above the historic building and aliens beaming down to see a show . The aliens have come because they see a few signs of intelligent life in Middlebury. Town Hall Theater’s 2011-2012 Membership Drive runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Anyone looking for more information should call 802-388-1436.

Undergraduates and graduate students fr om Middlebury College and other institutions also attend the summer sessions to fulfill language requirements or complete degrees. For the fifth year , philanthropist Kathryn Wasserman Davis has funded the 100 Fellowships for Peace: In-

The initiative is intended to challenge Middlebury College and the Monter ey Institute of International Studies, a graduate school of Middlebury, to use the institutions’ combined expertise in language acquisition and policy studies to recruit and train future potential peacemakers. Under the guidance of about 290 faculty members at both locations fr om colleges and universities throughout the world, students of all ages and nationalities live on campus, totally immersed in their tar get language. Students live, learn and interact in the language they have come to study, and all agree to abide by the Language Pledge, a formal commitment to speak the language of study and no other for the entir e summer session. The Language Schools also host cultural events that are often open to the public.

Charles Neville: Big talent coming to small city VERGENNES — Get ready to boogie and have a good time when the spirit of New Orleans hits V ergennes. Grammy awar d winner Charles Neville will play with piano legend Henry Butler and the band Gent Treadly on Satur day, July 2, at the V ergennes Opera House. This lineup of world-class

musicians will featur e a blend of New Orleans jazz, blues and funk. Local group, Panton Flats, will kick-of f the event at 7 p.m. with a blend of rock and R&B classics. As a member of one of New Orleans’ most famous musical families, Neville started playing saxophone before he reached his teens.

At right, Grammy award winner Charles Neville

In addition to his work with the Neville Br others, his experience on saxophone has included r hythm and blues, funk, jazz, be-bop, and even American Indian music. He is the only one of the Neville Br others that lived away fr om New Orleans for long periods of time, making places like New Y ork, Memphis and Oregon his home. Rounding out the line-up will be New York City-based band Gent T readly with its blend of bluesy impr ovisational roots.

fuel rods, and don’t cut, you get even more O 2 and less CO 2 .) The BioMass website says that wood chips emit CO 2 at a far lower rate per mega-watt than oil, but the Clean Air Revival website says that wood chips produce 222,000 pounds of CO 2 per million BTU produced, while no. 2 oil produces only 161,000. In short, there’s no agreement on the merits of wood chips, a specific set of conflicting facts the print media in Vermont chose not to disclose when reporting on a specific proposal. For shame. Another is a discussion of Green Mountain Power ’s power-purchase plan, the nuclear kilowatts to come not from in-state Vermont Yankee but from out-of-state (NH) Seabrook. James Moore, president of the anti-nuclear Vermont Public Interest Research Group, is quoted thus: “What we need to do is pick up the pace for clean, renewable…” and so on, while “…GMP did the right thing..” for price reasons in rejecting an in-state nuclear source for an out-of-state one and advocating for all the renewable sources which uniformly cost more than nuclear—wind, solar, and hydro—require more in taxpayer subsidy; and are presently able to furnish only tiny percentages of overall power requirements. A full report would have laid out these conflicts, but the print media chose not to. Maybe it was just a terribly unfortunate shortage of column-inches that prevented the recitation of all nine numbers? Third in the trio is a report on the Entergy-versus-Vermont lawsuit, devoting more than 24 column inches to a full recitation of the State’s arguments—for example, that Entergy knew what it was buying into, regulatory-climatewise, when it purchased Vermont Yankee in 2002, and little to no exposition of Entergy’s points-at-issue. The state unilaterally changed the rules for relicensing after purchase—and thereby (intentionally?) induces a reader hostility to the corporation and its operation of Vermont Yankee. On the subject of replacement power costs —a certainty in the event of re-licensing denial and shutdown—the article blithely recites the “what-me-worry?” anti-nuke position thus: imported expert witness Seth Parker assured that “there is substantial evidence in these studies and sources indicating that electric prices may be lower if Vermont Yankee shuts down.” Parker did not mention the fact that one of the state’s major power distributors, GMP, could find adequate quantities of similarly priced power only by offering to purchase from another nuclear source, Seabrook in New Hampshire. Surely even modestly investigative reporting would have thought that nexus worthy of discovery and print? But apparently there’s not much of the Woodward-andBernstein tradition surviving in the modern Fourth Estate in Vermont. A reader must look elsewhere, and fortunately, there are such sources in the alternative media—mostly electronic— but of course, they’re not as widely read and therefore the sets of fact and history surrounding the energy question aren’t as widely known. Is that the editorial intent, when a major component of “all the news that’s fit to print” is chosen not to be printed? You decide. To your Humble Scribe, it appears that in contemporary Vermont print-media practice, the once-honored New York Times slogan has been adjusted to “all the news that fits the template, prints”—the template being the now-dominant Progressive ideology which pretty much rules Vermont governance and policy. If you cheat at cards, you’re soon alone at the table. That’s what’s been happening to every national daily except one, the Wall Street Journal, which doesn’t, and that’s why it’s now the only daily with rising circulation. For a full account of the decline of The New York Times, read “Grey Lady Down.” Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

Committee planning Ludlow’s 250th anniversary From News & Staff Reports LUDLOW — As the T own of Ludlow n ears t he 2 50th a nniversary of its creation, town members are beginning the pr ocess of planning appr opriate activities and events to commemorate the occasion. Tentative plans call for activities on Friday, Sept. 16, and Satur day, Sept. 17. The detailed pr ogram for Ludlow's birthday party will be finalized during the next few weeks. Events being considered include the r eading of the town’s original charter, a brief history of Ludlow , patriotic music, a parade, BBQ picnic, block dance, and an appropriate movie. Ludlow's original charter was issued on Sept.r 16, 1761 by Benning Wentworth, the r oyal governor of New Hampshire. The charter had several unique requirements and benefits: It permitted the first 50 settler families to become r esidents and hold two annual fairs. When the same 50 families wer e r esident, they opened a market.

The 1761 charter spelled out the local governance for the town, citing Capt. Elakim Hall as the first town moderator. Following the first town meeting in October 1761, all subsequent meetings were to take place on the second Tuesday of March. Regarding land use, the charter required that five acr es of land be cultivated for every 50 acr es owned. The charter also allocated certain acr eage in the center of the town as a “town lot”. It clearly specified that all "white and other pine tr ees" fit for use as masts in the Royal Navy could not be cut without the Governor's license. The idea of taxation in 1761, as much a part of the zeitgeist of government as r egulation, was r elatively simple: Payment of one ear of Indian corn. Later, the tax became one shilling for every 100 acres owned. How these early tax r equirements wer e satisfied is questionable, given the intervention of the Revolutionary War and the battles between New Hampshire and New York over contr ol of the r enegade Vermont Republic.

Ludlow’s Anniversary Committee is meeting to plan the town’s upcoming 250th birthday party: Pictured are members of the planning committee: Dennis Devereux, Ralph Pace, Linda Tucker, Pam Cruickshank, Patty Greenwood, Willow Feller, and Susan McNeely. Photo provided

Given to Frances's daughter, she gave it to Ellen T urner of Connecticut, who passed it on to her friend T eresa Campbell, California. On May 9, the eight quilt squares came home to Cavendish.” This year, in addition to being the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil W ar, is the 250th anniversary of Cavendish’s cr eation. In keeping with the 250th Anniversary, a group of local women and men have been working on a quilt. When Campbell supplied the names of the

quilters, which include Evey Kendall, Leizzie Kendall, Maria Spaulding, Julia A. Davis, Mary Hemminway , Celia A. Davis, and Ella A. Spaulding, it was noted that one of the quilters for Cavendish’s anniversary quilt, Pang T ing, now lives in the house where the Kendall sisters once resided. The quilt squares, along with the genealogy of the quilters, is now on display at the Cavendish Historical Society Museum. The Museum is located on Main Str eet in Cavendish. As part of Cavendish’s Old Home Day, Saturday, July 2, the squares can be viewed along with the corr espondence that led to their return.

ATV Disclaimer & Safety Information: Riding an ATV can be dangerous. Remember to always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing. Never ride on paved surfaces or public roads. Never carry passengers unless the ATVis specifically engineered to accomodate them. Riding at excessive speeds or engaging in stunt riding is extremely dangerous. Be extremely careful on difficult or unknown terrain. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Many ATVs are recommended only for highly experienced riders 16 years and older. Please make sure that you are riding an ATV that is age appropriate. Riders younger than 16 years of age should always be supervised by an adult. We recommend that all ATV riders take an approved ATV training course and read their vehicle owner’s manual thoroughly. When riding your ATV always stay on established trails in approved areas.
