Construction begins on Crown Point Bridge Governors break ground June 11 By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — The construction of a new Lake Champlain Bridge is much more than an engineering project. “This is a critical link between two states,” Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas said at a ground breaking ceremony marking the start of construction June 11. “Those who live and work in the area surrounding the Lake Champlain Bridge share family, friends and business relationships on both sides of the lake. The ease and timeliness of transportation across Lake Champlain is critical to their way of life and economy.” Douglas was joined by New York Gov. David Paterson and a host of federal, state and local officials at the ceremony at the base of the former bridge in Crown Point. “Breaking ground on the new Lake Champlain Bridge is an important step in reconnecting our two states and restoring this critical link for commerce, tourism, employment, education and medical services,” Paterson said.

Dignitaries from New York and Vermont gathered June 11 to commemorate construction of a new Crown Point bridge across Lake Champlain. The new $69.6 million bridge will be built at the same location as the previous structure and is expected to be completed in September 2011. Photo by Nancy Frasier

Help for stressedout dairy farmers

THE STATE OF FARMING—The number of Addison County dairy farms has been dropping steadily for the past 50 years. In 1947, there were 11,206 dairy farms in the state. Today, there are fewer than 1,500. According to a new UVM survey, the average herd size is 115.5 cows, while the median herd size is 70 cows. This means half of Vermont’s dairy farms have 70 cows or less. More than 75 percent of dairy farmers rely on rented land. Hay is the most common crop. Photo by J. Kirk Edwards

Dickens play brings life to 19th century author Charles Dickens at Town Hall Theater MIDDLEBURY—Addison County–based theatre artists Neil Flint Worden and Gaen Murphree team up to create “The Very Dickens!” The one-man show features Worden as Charles Dickens performing selections from David Copperfield and Nicholas Nickleby and embodying an entire cast of characters. “The Very Dickens!” will premiere in a workshop performance (with minimal design elements) at Middlebury’s Town Hall Theatre, June 20, 7 p.m. A post-show discussion with the artists will be led by Margo Whitcomb, a veteran of new play development, currently teaching at Johnson State College. Dickens—an unstoppable human locomotive of an artist— carried out a vastly lucrative side career the last twelve years of his life, performing his work onstage. Hailed as “the greatest reader of the greatest writer of the age,” Dickens played to rave reviews and ecstatic audiences. Motivated by personal crisis, his need to perform became so obsessive that many of his closest friends believed it drove him to an early grave. “I got fascinated by this aspect of Dickens’ life a number of years ago,” said Murphree, who is adapting and directing the piece, “when I was working on A Christmas Carol at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre, and have been working on it ever since. Dickens was a master storyteller with an ear for the theatrical, and the stories themselves are hilarious one moment and immensely moving the next. It’s been a rare delight to collaborate with an actor of Neil’s abilities who’s

also the perfect Dickens. We’re trying to recreate the essence of Dickens’ performance. He didn’t just read; as eyewitnesses describe it he literally became the characters—and that’s the fun of it. “Dickens is the 19th-century Shakespeare, his language and characters are so rich, “ says Worden, “and getting to portray both Dickens and this array of characters is an amazing challenge for an actor.” Worden and Murphree are longtime colleagues from the prestigious University of Washington School of Drama. A veteran of over 200 performances, Worden recently appeared with Olympia Dukakis in Another Side of the Island. Other favorite roles include Claudius and Henry IV at the Utah and Wyoming Shakespeare Festivals, respectively, Louis XIV in Las Meninas at the San Jose Repertory, and El Tigre in Spain at Half Moon Theatre, of which he is a cofounder. Before coming to Vermont, Worden ran the acting program at Vassar College. Murphree’s first play was produced at the Actors Theatre of Louisville. Favorite directing projects include an allwomen Hamlet at Marlboro College and a Butoh-inspired Antigone. She taught and directed in the MFA Program at the American Conservatory Theatre and has worked in such diverse theatres as the Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Seattle Repertory Theatre, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe. “The Very Dickens!” will be performed at Town Hall Theater at the top of Merchants Row in Middlebury on Sunday, June 20, at 7 p.m. Tickets, $5, are available through the THT Box Office by calling 802-382-9222.

My new neighbor, Chucky T

he past three years there’s been a Woodchuck living at my property. He has four homes/holes, far as I can tell, to my one, all within running-scared distance of my house. I call him Chucky. I know, not very imaginative. Whatever. People name their black cats Blackie, their white cats Snowball, and their Siamese cats Chin. Secure people, comfortable enough with themselves that they don’t have to give their pets cool or unusual names. I like that. So does my pet Octopus, Eight. Chucky had done a tiny bit of nibbling on my abode. He chewed small bits from a rubber bushing at the front door, and a few bits from a bottom trim board long-side my barn. I didn’t much care, the damage was small and chew occurrences were few, spread over three years. There seemed no reason to get rid of Chucky, and anyway, I couldn’t kill him if you paid me. He’s cute. And he ripples when he runs. One early evening I saw Chucky rippling across the lawn and over to one of the holes he’s poked into the bank that slants high up and away from my driveway. Chucky entered the hole, then abruptly turned to peer his familiar friendly face out, his nose and whiskers wriggling a notion of trust. “Hey Ace, can you stand how cute I look peaking my snout from this hole? By the way, you’re crib is sick. Thanks for letting me crash here,” he seemed to communicate, while I stood alone in the middle of the driveway, looking up at Chucky, thoroughly entertained, and wishing my cat were there with me to complete the set that is the family who live on the hill. No way I’m killing ole ripple runnin' Chucky, I thought … then. This is now. Chucky’s nibbling has increased. Chucky’s been chewin’ my front-door jam. Go ahead Chucky, nibble a rubber bushing, a bottom barn board, a bootjack, or even a garden hose rack. But do not chew a front-door jam. No. I don’t care how cute you are or how ripply you run. I paid a crap load for that door. Standing at the entrance of the home I love so much and

work so hard to maintain, seeing bits of chewed frontdoor jam laying scattered at the threshold that to visitors represents a grand first impression, I have total reason to believe; Chucky’s gotta go, or something. But I love and have grown accustomed to Chucky, and, I’m a pansy, unable to kill stuff, so yesterday I bought a Have a Heart trap. Course, the girl I bought it from told me some animal expert told her that if you trap a woodchuck, take it far from it’s home and let it go, it dies anyway. Great. Now what do I do? If I believe the expert, I’m in a no-win situation. I either let my house be chewed to ruin, or I kill a Woodchuck, heartlessly, albeit with aid from the ironically named, Have a Heart trap. There are too many gol darn experts around. And what do experts really know anyhow? (See BP oil spill, Wall Street 2007-present, …) And now you’re telling me there are Woodchuck experts? Those from whose expertise we’re to believe Woodchucks, for cripes sakes, can’t make a go of it in the middle of a veritable vegetable garden that is a springtime Vermont forest? Get the hell outta here. So, I bought the trap, figuring trap-and-release gives Chucky a better chance to live then might a bullet through the skull. What does one use to bait a woodchuck? “I hear they like broccoli,” the farm store merchant offered.

Geopocalypse on Venus?


uring the first half of the 20th century, astronomers occupied themselves with four theories that explained the hidden, cloudcovered surface of the planet Venus. The first theory proposed that Venus was a vast desert with howling winds that sculpted surface rocks into wild, hoodoo formations. The second and third theories proposed that Venus was covered by either a vast ocean of seltzer water or bubbling seas of petroleum. A fourth theory proposed a planetwide swamp simiBy Lou Varricchio lar to Earth’s coal-forming Carboniferous wetlands complete with alien dinosaur-like creatures slogging through the muck and mire. These steamy Venusian theories provided great sci-fi landscapes, but they were dead wrong. The theories were based on scant facts known at the time: Namely, that Venus was cloud covered, Earth sized, and within our solar system’s zone of habitability. But how one derives planetwide swamps or oceans from bare bones astronomical data illustrates more the power of human imagination over scientific fact finding. No matter, it was only after NASA’s Mariner II robot flyby of our sister planet in 1962 that these four competing theories were finally discarded. In truth, Venus is a tad like theory no. 1: it’s a blistering, arid landscape crushed at the bottom of an ultra-dense atmosphere of carbon dioxide gas; as a result, its surface temperature is pushed above the melting point of lead solder. While there’s growing evidence suggesting that Venus indeed had oceans of water briefly during its prehistory, it is presently a dessicated planet that’s very unlike Earth. Most striking is Venus’ lack of plate tectonics—the means by which carbon compounds are recycled through crustal rocks. Without such a dynamic geo mechanism, Venus has been dubbed the “runaway greenhouse effect” planet. It became the poster child for global warming proponents, thanks to its excessive natural amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide. There are also many volcanoes visible on the surface of Venus—in fact, several of these carbon-dioxide belching mountains appear to be active today although there’s no definitive proof. Between the Mariner II and Magellan probes to Venus, spanning the years 1962 to 1994, researchers such as astronomer David Grinspoon of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science reasoned that some bizarre global catastrophe resurfaced the planet every few million years—this all due to the large number of young volcanic peaks and the small number of old asteroid impact structures (fewer than 1,000 impact craters have been found). It was clear that impacts had occurred on Venus, but some planetwide event apparently erased the ancient impact craters within a short span of geologic time. Thus, a planetwide volcanic event, on an apocalyptic scale never seen before in our solar system, was proposed as the reason for Venus’ “fresh” resurfacing. Expanding this theory, astronomers then concluded that nothing much happened on Venus after the planetary upheaval. Now, planetary geologists Timothy Bond and Mike Warner of Imperial College in the U.K. have shown that the global volcanic catastrophe on Venus probably never took place. Bond and Warner looked at NASA's Magellan spacecraft data from the 1990s and found that that the distribution of old impact craters on Venus was random; the ancient craters were nearly pristine, untouched by anything resembling a planet-scale cataclysm. Bond and Warner rejected the accepted theory as simply too fantastic to take seriously. “No planets that we knew of had experienced volcanic eruptions of this scale and speed,” Bond said in a BBC-TV interview. So, a single, titanic volcanic event may not have been responsible for smoothing out the Venusian surface. Instead, a series of volcanic eruptions—more like Earth’s supervolcanoes of the Yellowstone kind, even smaller—were more likely to have resurfaced Venus 500 million years ago. But what triggered these more modest series of volcanic eruptions that reshaped a planet the size of Earth? Ah—now there you have a real mysery. What’s in the Sky: The first quarter Moon is south of Saturn this weekend. Look for the beautiful ringed planet and the Moon in the southwest about one hour after sunset.

f I may play the H.G. Wells role as future seer, here’s my prediction of “Things to Come” in Vermont— The Vermont Legislature, now composed overwhelmingly of politicians beholden to a new exurban-consumer-majority constituency, will soon override the governor’s recent veto of a Golden Dome decision to renege somewhat on its earlier promise of continuing a modest financial incentive to farmers to keep on farming via the Current Use program. Since urbanites became the voting majority in the U.S., the general trend of governmental farm policy has been to purchase consumer votes by making food ever cheaper. In inflation-adjusted terms, the policy offers a range of subsidies to keep producers producing. Now the game is to see how much the subsidies can be cut back without reducing supply. The existence of a national cheap food policy has been denied by all the usual suspects in government and advocacy (such as Carol Tucker Foreman, a power in both the Consumer Federation of America and the USDA), but the historical facts are there for those who wish to read them; the more recent events-in-evidence are still remembered by many, mostly with a connection to farming today—the massive federal legal retaliation against the National Farmers’ Organization (after 20 years the government court case collapsed, but the intended financial damage to NFO was permanent) for moving members’ milk among competing markets. For a single publication illustrating the urbanitedominated governmental view of ag economics, I found none better than the “Agricultural Food Policy Review of 1981”. All the policies and preferences in that 30-year-old book prevail today. On page 45 you’ll find the USDA position on profitable commodity prices: not necessary if farmland values are rising. On page 56 you’ll find the allegiance to ever-lower consumer food prices. On page 100 you’ll read that export embargoes are ok to prevent domestic food price increases, and on page 126 you’ll read that exceeding import-quota levels for the same reason is just fine. On page 142 you’ll find another encomium to the merits of “abundance at low prices”. As policy and regulation, it has worked extremely well: from almost 25 percent of Median Family (disposable) Income in the 1950s, consumer food spending is now below 10 percent, and much of that, 40 cents on the dollar, is now spent in the most expensive way possible: away from home. Today’s typical household, with an MFI of some $62K, devotes maybe $6K to food, and the other $6K now not spent on food goes for a range of urban-produced consumer goods, in compliance with one of the four points of a “good” (subservient, I’d say) agricultural economy laid out in the 60’s by ag-professor

Dale Hathaway of Ohio University. Read it for yourself in “Problems of Progress in the Agricultural Economy”. Here’s my list of six instances of governance policy aimed at reducing consumer food prices: (1) It starts with the post-Civil-War three-decadedeflation policy which reduced commodity prices much more than urban wages (farmers had just become a minority in their own country) and resulted, eventually, in the McKinley victory over Bryan –urbanites over farmers—in the 1896 election. Then there was the stimulation of farm production for export purposes during WWI, followed by a predictable post-war farm depression-with-retail-price-drops which (2) got no matching DC attention. During the ‘20s farmers tried and failed (3) to get federal support for the McNary-Haugen plan, a farmer-funded export program to get commodity surpluses off the domestic market. It would have kept domestic food prices up, so, eventually, Coolidge vetoed it. Twice. In the ‘30s, farmers began quitting in numbers sufficient to grab D.C. attention, so the Ag Adjustment Act (4) was aimed at just enough price support to discourage supply-reducing quits which would cause “undue price increases to consumers”. A parity cropsupport program (where farmer purchasing power would match that of urbanites, as in the 1910-14 base period) was enacted but never realized. Actual parity came about only through market forces during expanded WWII commodity demand, which caused a brief, and unusual post-WWII farm prosperity period. Congress found it so offensive that in 1948-9 the strict parity formula was dumped (5) in favor of “floating parity”, based not on parity with urban earnings but on (sub-parity) actual crop prices over the preceding 10 years, and, by 1998, the average parity ratio was down to 42 from the previous 90 percent promise. But the pretense ended earlier with the repeal (6) of the 90 percent parity-requirement Steagall Amendment in 1952, according to Acres USA’s Charles Walters, with the helpful politicking of Vermont’s U.S. Sen. George Aiken. Agrieconomics writer Brad Wilson summarizes thus: “Price floors were ended in 1966, replaced with subsidies to quiet down angry farmers”. Since then, the great game in government has been one of “what’s the least “aid” needed to prevent supply reductions via too many farmer quits?” And urbanites in government are forever seeking any additional tweak, to ”save money” but not risk cheap food. In that context, reneging on the earlier promises made in Current Use—changing the rules to reduce tax costs to urbanites—isn’t much different from reneging on the original parity agreement, or any of the above consumer-biased deals described above. To dump the 90 percent parity formula, a fake crisis in food pricing was created to stir up urban public opinion. That may be why a Tin Pan Alley rewrite of Woody Guthrie’s Depression/Dust-Storm-Era “Dusty Old Dust”, which made the charts at no. 15 in 1951, included these lines: So I asked the man how his butter was sold He said “one pound of butter for two pounds of gold” I said, “So long, it’s been good ta know ya, And I’ve gotta be movin’ along…” Longtime Vermont resident Martin Harris now lives in Tennesee.

Annie Harlow, hospitality chairwoman for Festival-onthe-Green, and several other volunteers will be on hand at the Farmers Diner to share copies of this year ’s festival schedule and distribute free compact audio disks compiled in honor of the event’s silver anniversary in 2003.

Vermonters paying too much for housing, report says Last year, approximately 3,000 more Vermonters paid too much for their housing and become “cost burdened”, according to a new report. The report, titled “Between a Rock and a Hard Place”, tracked housing costs and wages in 2009. The report was written and researched by Vermont Housing Finance Agency. The report notes much of the drop in home prices was offset by higher fees, down payment requirements and rates for moderate credit scores. Also, rental prices have held steady in spite of increasing vacancies.

for veterans, their families and the community and I want to be a part of that.” Norton’s goals for his term of office include energizing the older membership and seeking ways to get younger veterans involved in an organization that was created as veterans returned from service during World War 1. Legion activities figure prominently in the Norton household as his wife, Pam is the president of both the Vergennes American Legion Auxiliary and Auxiliary District 1. She has held many statewide Auxiliary chairmanships and is an Army

Roger Norton veteran. The new and returning officers will be formally installed at the regular Vergennes Post 14 meeting on July 8.

Library fix it To the editor: We recently discovered that one of our two septic lines from the building needed attention. The prompt response from companies made it all happen very quickly. Our thanks to everyone involved. David Clark Director Ilsley Public Library Middlebury

To the editor: Looks like nepotism is still at work in the Bristol school system. On May 4, Garland “ Chico ” Martin, who received zero votes in the March 8 election was hand picked to become the newest member of the Bristol Elementary school board. Mr. Martin who shares the same mailing address with Susan Stewart who left the board to become principal of the Monkton School, works as director of operations and administration at the New School of Montpelier, an independent school that serves children and young adults with emotional and behavioral problems. The selection of Mr. Martin to serve on the Bristol board raises the question as to rather or not the Bristol board meetings will be now held in Montpelier. Since the Bristol board has admitted publicly and on camera that the have no intention of complying with the rules and regulations of this state, especially those written before 1959 it seems logical that the New School would be the proper venue for their future deliberations. Holding the meetings there makes good sense and the taxpayers will certainly feel better knowing that the board could possibly be getting the professional help they need to assist them in conforming to the rules. Burt Degraw Bristol

Bristol dumping To the editor: Incredible. Less than 10 days after a major garbage cleanup in the Upper Notch of Bristol, slobs again dumped garbage in our stream. This time it was 4 tires and a bag of used cat litter. This is an endless cycle that has to stop. The Bristol Select Board keeps raising the dump fees and people just dump more garbage on our rural roads. The more they raise fees, the more people dump along the roads and on and on.


SATURDAY June 19, 2010 Here are a couple of ideas that may curb the dumping. 1) Twice a year (spring/fall) have a free dump day at the Bristol town landfill. 2) When a dumper is caught...make an example of them. Fines, community service, and publish their names in the local paper plus clean up the garbage they dumped. 3) When the the dumpers are caught, give them the stiffest penalty allowed. One recent dumper was given a slap on the wrist. The so called judge waived the fine and told the dumper to pick up the mattress. Of course he didn't pick up the mattress, he's a 'scofflaw'. And the judge? Well, you be the judge. 4) Strategically place a couple of trail cameras in the notch to catch these slobs. These cameras are relatively cheap and they work day or night. There won't be any question as to who is dumping what/when. Doing nothing on this environmental issue close-to-home won't cut it. Burt DeGraw Bristol

Guest Viewpoint

can inspire humans to reflect upon the past as well as the present and presumably the future. I have on more than one occasion stopped at the monument across from the Middlebury Inn. It lists the names of men from our area who died for this country. I don't know a one of them. And yet I sometimes read the names and wonder about their lives and taking a look around, wonder if they would think their ultimate sacrifice was worth it. The monument rests in a sort-of-roundabout, granted a rectangle but nonetheless, used to direct and calm traffic but it is also a piece of land that is quite large and welcomes visitors. But I gather that this new roundabout will not be especially large or apparently safe enough to welcome lingering. It would be a shame to spend so much money on something that cannot really be enjoyed but from a distance. Back to the safety function of roundabouts, I hope that Mr. Nuovo's facts pertain more to roundabouts on busy highways than in the middle of small towns and that no one will be traveling through Middlebury at a high rate of speed. Right now there are several triangles in the road at that intersection, used to direct traffic, and they seem to have been quite adequate in both doing their job and in being pleasant to the eye, as they double as flower beds. (I am sorry to say I cannot name the woman who deserves our thanks for doing such a lovely job in keeping it up.) I am still concerned about 18-wheelers using the bridge and roundabout without an occasional problem. We still see an occasional truck that doesn't quite make the turn on Route 7 up by the Middlebury Inn. I would think that a monument in the middle of the roundabout would only add to the difficulty, should a truck need help extraditing itself from a tight situation. If Mr. Nuovo is so set on a monument to mark Middlebury’s existence, might I suggest it be put on the land in front of the town hall? It has been decimated by the removal of all those wonderful trees and could use some sprucing up (if you'll pardon the pun.) Flanzy Chodkowsk



hen making his case to support the purchase and conctruction of a new monument in downtown Middlebury’s traffic rotary, Mr. Nuovo, president of both the selectboard and the centerpiece committee, said, "...It is commonly accepted among traffic engineers that there should be a prominent structure at the center of any roundabout both to direct traffic and to calm it.” Mr. Nuovo makes it seem as though it is a question of what not if. Taking his statement at face value, it still brings some troubling questions to my mind. First, it must be determined if this monument was part of the original plan for the roundabout? If it was, then I would assume that the issue was already a done deal. But because we are now discussing it, I must conclude that it was not in the plan that was bought and paid money for by us. On that basis, I am forced to ask how an apparently, obviously, plain-to-see deficient plan for the roundabout was passed? Mr. Nuovo is the president of the Middlebury Selectboard and he seems fully aware of the necessary safety feature a roundabout centerpiece provides. Yet, it was not part of the plan accepted? One could look at this situation and conclude that the selectboard did not meet its responsibility. For example, suppose the roundabout was built without the centerpiece and someone went through it rather than around (the prevention of such a maneuver is one of Mr. Nuovo's arguments for the necessity of a centerpiece) and had an accident. Could the inadequate design be faulted? Could the town be financially responsible in a lawsuit because our selectboard knowingly accepted a faulty roundabout design? I will return to this in a moment. Mr. Nuovo also addressed the theme of the centerpiece in his letter. He said, “Now a monument is a reminder (that's what the word means), but reminders often direct our attention both to the past and present.” And from that start he provides a somewhat logical argument as to why the centerpiece should be a monument to Middlebury's 250 year existence. My problem is that monuments are meant to be lingered over. Even Mr. Nuovo conceded that monuments

Time to slow down and reconsider our lives


e’re busy people, right? We’ve got things to do, places to be, commitments to keep. We have families and friends, jobs or volunteer work or both. Some days it feels like we’re right out straight. It seems like there is always something demanding our attention—whether it’s a work commitment or a family obligation or housework that needs tending. We jump from one event or appointment or responsibility to another. Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes it seems as if most of life is spent rushing to the next thing. So, we can kind of sympathize with the story of a Pharisee named Simon found in the Gospel of Luke (7:36-50). Simon was a busy guy with lots of Pharisee-stuff to do. And, on this particular day, he cleared his schedule to have Jesus over for dinner. Jesus was gaining a reputation as a teacher and a healer. Simon probably saw this dinner date as a way to bolster his standing in the eyes of the other Pharisees. But Simon also, likely, had some questions about Jesus. Could he be who everyone says he is? Is this guy for real? Simon wanted to see for himself. So, reclining at the table as was the custom in that day, Simon gets his chance. Only, before Simon knew it, a woman who had a reputation of her own arrives on the scene. Right before his very eyes she begins washing Jesus feet with her tears and drying them with her hair. And Jesus does nothing about it. Simon can’t believe what he is seeing. Someone like Jesus shouldn’t allow himself to be approached in this way. Exasperated and annoyed Simon jumps to the only reasonable conclusion he can fathom, “If this man were a prophet,” he thinks to himself, “he would have known who and what kind of woman this is who is touching him—that she is a sinner.” No other explanation seems possible. Jesus, however, sensing what is going on in Simon’s head, invites him to slow down, to reconsider. He tells him a parable and asks him to reflect on questions of forgiveness and generosity and love. And he asks Simon to consider the possibility that things are not always what they seem. For instance, Jesus says, “I entered your house; you

gave me no water for my feet, but she has bathed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair…You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.” Jesus does know what sort of woman this is, and he knows what sort of man Simon is as well. It’s a human-thing to jump to conclusions, to judge other people and to justify ourselves. You’ve heard the By Rev. Krista Beth Atwood term ‘Rush to Judgment.’ How often do we write-off others because we disagree with them in some way? It makes our world easier if we can put things in tidy categories. Then we don’t have to think about it too much and we are free to get on with the next thing. Unfortunately things like forgiveness and generosity and love are a bit more time consuming. What would happen if we slowed down just a little bit? Would we see in each other people in need of God’s love, people in need of forgiveness? Would we experience God’s grace for ourselves in new ways? It strikes me that Jesus very seldom seemed to be in a rush. In fact, Jesus didn’t hurry very much at all in the Scriptures. He had time for Simon and the woman and the many others he encountered on the way. We don’t know if Simon became a different man because of his dinner with Jesus or if he just rushed on to the next thing. We don’t know if Simon reacted to Jesus’ challenge or if he was changed because of it. But the real question may be, are we?

to Rogers and Ambrose

t isn’t too often that two, major arts-presenting organizations have their chief executive officers retire—both after long and very successful tenures. I am talking about Andrea Rogers, who steered the Flynn Center for the Arts, and Jane Ambrose of the UVM Lane Series. I know that all of us, actively aligned with various Vermont arts organizations, realize that these two women didn’t just appear in white gloves to comment and leave the dirty work for others. They used a good deal of gentle persuasion to raise the funds for everything ranging from total renovation of a building to making certain that local audiences had the opportunity to see the best that the world had to offer in the arts. Both women built multi-faceted reflections of the arts communities in Vermont into their respective support bases. I use the plural, communities, advisedly: all one has to do is to attend local or traveling companies (where there are presenters in various aspects of the arts) to see how there are many different facets that make up financial support by buying tickets to events. This is also true of the support that comes from private and corporate funding. I moved here from Los Angeles in 1982; at that time, Los Angeles had only the L.A. Philharmonic. Los Angeles imported San Francisco Opera every fall, later to be followed by the New York City Opera. Nothing of any consequence happened in Los Angeles—it shipped on the smallest of scales. Why mention this fact? Because when I began to attend performances at the Flynn or the Redstone Recital Hall, I felt I had died and gone to heaven; that’s because Los Angeles compared so unfavorably with what the Lane Series and the Flynn Center were doing here in Vermont. I made one observation that drew the attention of both Rogers and Ambrose: I said some discouraging words

about the practice of publically thanking the public and private benefactors that help make Vermont a hub for the arts. Each of these women spoke quietly, but passionately to me, earnestly trying to convince me that these benefactors could really never get enough thanks for what they did for the arts community in Vermont. I learned my lesson. I now consider both women to be my friends as well as fellow lovers of the arts. We have shared singing together; we have shared earnest conversations as well as lighthearted ones together as well. They have extended many kindnesses to me over the years, for which I take this opportunity, once again, to render heartfelt thanks to each of them individually for all they have done for me personally and for the arts community in Vermont. Burlington resident Dan Wolfe observes and critiques the local arts scene for The Eagle. His column appears weekly.

Mount Abe Eagles are D-II baseball state champions By Frederick Pockette Last week we tracked the progress of all our area high school teams up to the quarterfinals round of the softball,. baseball and lacrosse post season tournaments. At the end of that action three of those teams remained alive, and were headed to the semifinals of their particular sport in a quest for a state championship. This week we tell you how each of these teams fared with their quests, so read on. Of the three area teams that remained only the top seeded, division-II Mount Abraham Eagles completed the deal and brought home their third baseball state championship in the past five years, but it was far from easy. In the semifinals, played June 8, the Eagles had little trouble with the visiting, sixteenth seeded Union-32 Raiders. Mount Abraham scored a combined 14 runs in the third and fourth innings to rout Union-32 16-1. Steve Patterson led the Eagles offensive barrage with two hits and three RBIs. He was helped by Sam Lieberman and Adam Pouliot, who added two hits and two RBIs each. Shawn Marcelle picked up the win by allowing just three hits and striking out seven in four innings of work. Two of those hits came off the bat of Paul Trollinger, to lead the Raider ’s meager offense. On the mound Torrie Weston took the loss for U-32, who complete their season at 6-11. It looked like they would cruise to the D-II title this past Monday night too. Behind a 3-run first inning the Eagles headed into the seventh inning with a 4-1 lead over the thirdseeded Burr and Burton Bulldogs, and Marcelle appeared to be pitching on cruise control. Heading into that seventh inning Marcelle had surrendered just three hits, so it looked like the Eagles were just three outs away from their school’s sixth Division-II Baseball State Championship. But as we all know, looks can be deceiving. After a leadoff walk Alex Miskovsky and Joel Zoufoly stroked back-to-back singles, making it 4-2, with runners on first and second, and nobody out. In comes Mickey O’Conner to try and finish off the win for Marcelle, and he would have had it not been for back-to-back errors by Mount Abra-

ham third baseman Sam Liberman. The first was a bobbled ground ball that loaded the bases. Then gave him another one. This time Liberman fielded it cleanly, but his throw to first was wild, and all three base runners scored, giving the Bulldogs a 5-4 lead. The Eagles however did what all champions do, they battled back. Ryan Siegle drove in the tying run with a booming double in the bottom of the seventh, and the game remained tied at 5-5 until the bottom of the tenth. That is when the night’s goat became the hero. Liberman reached first on an infield hit, and wound up on third thanks to a hit batter and passed ball. Ethan Heffernan laid down a squeeze bunt and Liberman raced home, slid safely under the tag, giving the Eagles a 6-5 win and the Division-II State Championship. Congratulations to the Mount Abraham Eagles who finish their year with a 16-5 record and are the 2010 Division-II State Champions. Redhawk Boys and Tiger Girls Fall in Finals Both the Champlain Valley Union Redhawks boy’s and Middlebury Tigers girl’s lacrosse teams reached the state championship, but neither could bring home the gold. The Redhawks had very little trouble with the fourth seeded Rutland Raiders in the semifinals. In Hinesburg on Tuesday, June 8th Taylor Gingras scored four goals, and assisted on three others to lead his Champlain Valley Union Redhawks to a 13-1 rout over the visiting Rutland Raiders in division-I semifinal action. Gingras had plenty of help though, notably from Nathaniel Wells (three goals), Lawrence Dee (two goals, assist), Nick Hart (goal, two assists), Jake Marston (two goals) and Robbie Dobrowski (goal, assist) In the net CVU goalie Eric Palmer made 13 saves to secure the win. David Kraus scored the lone goal for the fourth seeded Raiders, while goalie David Morgan had eight aves in the Raiders final game of the year. But last Friday against the Essex Hornets in the DivisionI State Championship was quite different. Pat Nee scored four times to lead a squad loaded with 15 seniors to a 10-5 win over CVU. For Essex, who finish the year at 17-1, it was

their third Division-I State Championship in the past four years. Ben Adams (two assists), Bill Hennessy (two assists), Michael Farmer and Adam Slocum also scored for the state champion Hornets. Taylor Gingras led CVU with a pair of goals while Lawrence Dee, Nathaniel Wells and Jake Marston also scored in the losing effort. In the net Redhawks goalie Eric Palmer made 17 saves in the final game of the year. CVU ends it season at 17-2. In girls semifinal action on Tuesday, June 8th, Middlebury’s Brandi Whittemore couldn’t have picked a better time to score her three goals. The Tigers were trailing the third seeded South Burlington Rebels 10-9 with ten minutes left to play in game when Whittemore struck. She fired in three straight, the first two in a forty second span, to put the Tigers ahead 12-10. From that point Middlebury held off the Rebels attack, scored a couple more and claimed the 14-10 win, and earned a spot in last Saturday’s Division-I State Championship. Liz Kelley led the Tigers with four goals, followed closely by Whittemore and Chrissy Ritter with three each. . Emma McDowell contributed a pair to the win while Kattie Ritter and Shelby Laframboise added single strikes to complete the Tigers scoring. In the net Alex Sears and Maria Ploof needed to make just five saves between them. Crystal King led the Rebels in their final outing of the year with three goals. Brittany LeClair and Allie Flaherty each added two goals each for the South Burlington (11-4). AnneMarie Farmer and Natalie Wimett had single goals to complete the Rebels scoring. Their real hero was goalie Ashley McDonald who kept the game close with her 19 saves. South Burlington ends their year at 11-4. The Tigers were on the other end of the comeback in the state championship played last Saturday. Middlebury held a 4-2 lad early in the second half over the Mount Anthony Patriots, but then the Patriot’s offense exploded. They would outscore Middlebury 10-3 the rest of the way to capture the game, and the Division-I State Championship with a 12-7 win.

young children and at-risk adolescents. Its cost-effective programs not only help individual families; its coordination of services benefits the entire community. In large part due to the efforts of the PCC, Addison County now has one of the lowest young adolescent pregnancy rates in the country. The PCC offers child care to at-risk families, home visits, parent education, work readiness training, early childhood and family services, alternative education, and prevention programs designed to reduce teen pregnancy. The PCC served as a state-wide model for the 15 parent/child centers that now exist across Vermont, and the PCC supports the consortium of the Vermont Parent Child Center Network. The Parent Child Center Anniversary Celebration will be held on Friday, June 25 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $25, are available through the THT Box Office by calling 382-9222. 52343

Douglas touts use of fed funds Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas touted a letter he received last month from chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, James Oberstar (D-Minn.) commending Vermont for ranking first in nation for the percentage of wastewater infrastructure Recovery Act funds put out to bid, under contract, and underway. Vermont has committed all of its wastewater infrastructure funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. “The entire Recovery Act team, from our Office of Eco-

nomic Stimulus and Recovery to the Department of Environmental Conservation, has done a tremendous job ensuring that we are getting these critical infrastructure funds into our communities and creating jobs expeditiously,” said Douglas. “When Congress passed the Recovery Act last year, it was up to the states to implement much of the funding. We are doing our part to get the money into our economy quickly, while being responsible stewards of the public’s resources.” Wastewater infrastructure projects funded through

ARRA include the Twin Oaks stormwater project in South Burlington, the combined sewer overflow elimination project in Springfield and a solar panel installation project at the wastewater treatment plant in Montpelier, among others. Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Justin Johnson said of the state’s work, “With a combination of smart work and good sense, Vermont was able to identify good projects and get the stimulus funds obligated quickly and efficiently.”

Bridge From page 1 “I am proud to have worked closely with Gov. Douglas to expedite this project, and commend the elected officials, community members and respective transportation officials for their efforts to work together toward a solution.” All the dignitaries expressed relief a new bridge is being built and heaped praise on Paterson and Douglas for their leadership. “I have attended many groundbreakings and can’t think of one of greater importance to constituents I represent,” state Sen. Betty Little said. “Since the bridge’s closure, our local communities, families and businesses have been managing through a sort of triage to deal with the loss of this vital link. Today marks the first step on the path to full recovery.” Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward of New York and Vermont Rep. Diane Lanpher echoed those comments. “As a representative I’ve had the privilege to serve my community during a time of crisis,” Lanpher said. “We have sat with both Vermonters and New Yorkers alike. We have visited homes and businesses. I want you to know your voices have been heard.” Bethany Kosmider, Crown Point supervisor, said the new bridge is a new beginning for the area. “Although the last few months have been difficult for the people of this region, today signifies a new start, and I thank Gov. Paterson and Gov. Douglas for their efforts to expedite this project,” Kosmider said. “I will continue to work with local, state and federal officials to bring prosperity to the North

Country and to Crown Point. “We will be leaving a great legacy and I want that legacy to include a renewed hope for the citizens of Crown Point,” she said. The Lake Champlain Bridge was closed last October because of safety concerns. A ferry service now links Crown Point and Addison, Vt. The new $69.6 million bridge will be built at the same location as the previous structure and is expected to be completed in September 2011. Flatiron Constructors, Inc. of Boulder, Colorado was awarded the contract to build the new bridge. While Flatiron will bring a core team of approximately a dozen managers, there will be jobs for local workers. “This will help create jobs in communities that desperately need them,” U.S. Rep. Bill Owens said. “I hope to see many people from my side of the lake, from my district, hired to work here.” Rep. Scott Murphy also attended. Tom Scozzafava, Moriah supervisor, said the bridge project is an example of how government can and should work. “During my 22 years as a town supervisor, I am pleased to say that I have never witnessed a faster approach to a catastrophic problem in finding both a temporary and permanent solution,” he said. “When the Lake Champlain Bridge was closed in October, Gov. Paterson and Gov. Douglas witnessed the many hardships that this created for thousands of their constituents. Without hesitation, they immediately began to work with local officials. “Gov. Paterson has proven his commitment to the North Country by his decisive actions in implementing the temporary ferry service and now a new bridge,” Scozzafava said. “This project is a true demonstration that two states, and the federal government worked in unison to make this a reality.”

At long last—a new lake bridge is under way!


ermont Gov. Jim Douglas and New York State Gov. David A. Paterson broke ground on the new Lake Champlain Bridge spanning the lake between Crown Point and Addison last week. A lot of local businesses and commuters on both sides of the lake let out a big sigh of relief. At long last! “Those who live and work in the area surrounding the Lake Champlain Bridge share family, friends and business relationships on both sides of the lake,” Gov. Douglas told the assembled state and local VIPs, news reporters, and residents of both states. “The ease and timeliness of transportation across Lake Champlain is critical to their way of life and economy. Everyone involved in this bridge project should be commended for getting us to this point so quickly.” The new bridge is being constructed basically at the same location as the demolished 1929 structure. If all goes well and there are no environmental or financing holdups, the bridge should be open for traffic in September 2011. The modern modified network tied arch bridge design is certainly evocative of the 1929 bridge; residents should be proud with this design since many of us had a genuine say in the selection of the steel structure. Unlike it’s 1929 predecessor, it’s too bad a New York-New England regional contractor couldn’t have been found to construct the new lake bridge. Be that as it may, the highly capable firm of Flatiron Constructors, Inc. of Colorado was awarded the big job. Flatiron has said it will offer many hood paying jobs to qualified local workers. (We won’t be the only folks watching Flatiron to see this promise fulfilled.) According to Gov. Paterson’s comments, Flatiron has been in operation since 1947 and it has extensive experience building bridges in both the U.S. and Canada. The Rocky Mountain State company rebuilt the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minn., following its disastrous collapse three years ago. So, armed with a solid design and a skilled contractor, there’s a lot of reason to be hopeful that our new Lake Champlain Bridge will be the focus of pride for many years to come. Louis Varricchio

The title of Brizard’s project, “Nonlinear finite-Larmor-radius effects in reduced fluid models,” involved collaborations with physicists at Dartmouth College as well as with the French laboratory CEA, Cadarache near Aix-enProvence, where Brizard spent part of a 2009 sabbatical leave. Brizard’s work focused on the derivation of nonlinear fluid equations suitable for the analysis of complex plasma dynamics by powerful computer simulations which he carried out on computers at Dartmouth College. A member of the faculty of Saint Michael’s since 2000, Brizard was a physicist in the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and was with the physics department at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1994 until coming to Saint Michael’s. He earned his doctorate in astrophysical sciences from Princeton University in 1990.
