By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — A 5.0 Richter magnitude earthquake was felt in western Vermont. The minor earthquake occured at 1:41 p.m. June 23, according to the Vermont and U.S. Geological Surveys. Vermont State Geologist Lawrence Becker said the quake’s epicenter was located 12 miles below the Earth’s surface of southern Ontario, Canada, close to the Ontario-New York-Quebec border. “I felt it here in Montpelier,” Becker said. “I was in my desk chair and then it started rocking.” But not everyone felt the quake. “Sorry, I didn’t feel a thing,” said Marty Semo, owner of Semo Greenscape, a lawn care service based in East Middlebury. “I was mowing a lawn at the time it supposedly hit; I didn’t feel a thing. I first heard about it while listening to the radio news during the Rush Limbaugh Show about an hour later.” Becker said the last official “event” in Vermont was April 20, 2002, when a quake centered near Plattsburgh, N.Y., was felt throughout the Champlain Valley. The temblor was felt across many sections of the northeastern United States as far south as northern Pennsylvania. No reports of damage were reported in Vermont or elsewhere in the northeast. The last large earthquake in Vermont occured April 20, 2002. According to Becker, the 2002 earthquake was a 5.1 magnitude and was centered off the New England coast.

Annual breakfast is a big salute to local veterans By Lou Varricchio BRANDON—Last year ’s salute to Brandon resident Orin Mitchell, an enlisted U.S. Marine, kicked off a salute to U.S. veterans that now returns for a second, even bigger annual celebration. The Breakfast for the Veterans event will be held at the Brandon American Legion Post 55, July 24, starting at 8 a.m. The event is organized by Andy and Becky Mitchell of Brandon, the parents of Orin Mitchell. “This event is a fulfillment of a dream,” Andy Mitchell said. Mitchell was a member of the U.S Army for 14 years. “We started out honoring Orin and turned into a wider salute to our area veterans,” he said. “Local veterans such as Ted Ketcham, Arron Tucker, Ernie Kish, and a dozen more, came out for last year ’s breakfast. We were honored to have them present.”

Andy and Becky Mitchell (center) join family and friends to salute veterans last year in Brandon. This year’s event, July 24, will be larger with over 200 guests expected at Brandon American Legion Post 55 July 24. File photo

Cystic fibrosis ‘Stampede’ is community wide event Fire & Ice Restaurant helps benefit By Lou Varricchio

Kayla and Samantha Flint cooking at the 2009 Bristol CF Stampede.

MIDDLEBURY—The good people of Fire and Ice Restaurant in Middlebury are once again a major sponsor of one of Addison County’s most notable charity events—the Bristol -based Three Day Stampede Toward the Cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The Bristol stampede will be held July 23-25. Located at the Bristol Recreation Field, the annual happening includes lawn and book sales, a raffle, craft and flea markets, a bake sale, a live radio broadcast, and a lots more for all ages. Fire and Ice also joins other prominent local businesses in in support of this worthy event. During the week of July 5-8, Fire and Ice will donate 50 percent of your food bill to the CF cure. You must call ahead for the benefit meal and bring a special voucher available on the stampede’s website at

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects children around the world; several young people in Addison County are battling the disease. CF affects the lungs and digestion and requires a daily treatment regimen. In 1989, David and Bonita Bedard’s twin granddaughters, Kayla and Samantha were born. The Bedard family lives in Bristol and is the driving force behind the annual stampede event. Below, in the Bedard’s own words, courtesy of the Three Day Stampede, you will learn about CF and how it affects their family as well as others. The Bedard story provides our community with a compelling reason to both get involved with the Three Day Stampede event in Bristol and enjoy a delicious meal at Fire and Ice for this good cause that’s very close to home. In the words of David and Bonita Bedard— “Within hours of the birth of Kayla and Samantha, we learned that Kayla had cystic fibrosis. We didn't know anything about CF but we learned a lot in a hurry. We found out that it is the number one genetic disease affecting

MONKTON—A Vermont State Police investigation, with assistance from Vermont Drug Task Force, police K9s, Vermont Fish and Wildlife and the Vergennes and Bristol Police Departments led to the execution of a search warrant in Monkton at the home of a sophisticated indoor marijuana grower. State Police seized over thirty growing plants and over five pounds and 8 ounces of marijuana and thousands of dollars worth of equipment used for cultivation. A second search warrant was executed in Ripton where more marijuana was located and Jarred Wendel, age 33, of Ripton was taken into custody without issue and charged with felony possession and cultivation of marijuana. He will be arraigned in Addison County Court at a later date.

HINESBURG — On June 23, the Vermont State Police received a report of an assault that had occurred at 133 Moody Rd. in Huntington. Investigation revealed that Shaun Freeman, age 35 of Hinesburg entered the home of Peter Golovach during the early morning hours and physically assaulted his estranged wife, Peter Golovach and Tara Lombardi with a police style night stick.

Bridport couple collect Earth’s treasures 50 pounds. While collecting is their passion, Charlie and Sandy Jago enjoy the fact that their interests have brought them closer together. Perhaps the best lesson the Jagos have

learned from the collecting hobby was uttered by the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus in 275 B.C.: “Of all the treasures on this Earth, friends are the most precious.”

By Lou Varricchio BRIDPORT—Charlie and Sandy Jago are a match made in heaven. The husband and wife team were born collectors and their passions have taken them to unusual places in search of rocks and minerals. For Charlie, rocks and minerals are his life’s passion; for Sandy, farm collectibles and jewelry making are her special passions. When the couple first met online, they knew they had a lot in common—so when they married they combined households and collections. The result is now a part of a unique home exhibit known as C&S Minerals and Collectibles located in Bridport. Charlie amassed a large collection of rocks and minerals from various rockhounding adventures that include unusual New England volcanic minerals such as datolite and prehnite—minerals found inside Triassic age basalt traprock located in Connecticut and Massachusetts—apatite from Ontario, Canada, crysocola from Zaire, Africa hexagonite from New York, actionolite from Vermont, and grossular garnet from Quebec, Canada—just a sampling of the many fascinating specimens in Bridport. “The Earth is a mineral treasure chest,” Charlie said. “We have a sampling of this immense wealth. We get all kinds of folks who visit—collectors, crystal enthusiasts, jewelry makers, and just those curious about what’s inside the Earth, beneath their feet.” When not in their Bridport home garage exhibit area, Charlie and Sandy are on the road attending rock and mineral shows throughout the northeast and beyond. For example, the couple enjoy displaying at the Sloan Stanley Museum and the Connecticut Antique Machinery in Kent, Conn.; they will be there Sept. 25-26. They will showcase their collectibles to visitors. Charlie will display a portion of the rock and mineral collection while Sandy will display jewelry items and John Deere collectibles, pop-

ular with New England farming families (these include the coveted John Deer Precision series of die-cast tractors). Many of these items were part of her late first husband’s collection. One treasure of Mother Earth that Charlie enjoys showing visitors dropping by the Bridport shop is a perfectly preserved, genuine dinosaur egg from China. “It’s not a replica,” Charlie said, referencing the many ‘fakes’ of dinosaur and other fossil material being offered to new, unsuspecting collectors. After being dug up in the Gobi Desert and then transported to its new home in Jago’s collection in Bridport, the egg has made a 75million-year-old and more than 10,000 mile journey. “This egg has made a very long journey to us,” Charlie said. “It ended up along the ancient Silk Road then made a long and winding air and ground trip to the lower 48 U.S. states—and ultimately here to Vermont—via the U.S. Air Force in Alaska.” You can tell Charlie and Sandy are especially proud of their unborn dinosaur forever encased in its rocky tomb. Also prized in the Jago’s collection is a variety of beryl, a mineral mined in New Hampshire. According to Charlie, Beryl is a beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate. It was used in the assembly of the first atomic bomb in 1945. “We owned the former Beryl Mountain Mineral Shop in South Ackworth, N.H.,” Charlie said. “I collected a considerable amount of beryl from that area.” Beryl is the pride of New England, according to Charlie. And what he refers to is New Hampshire’s beautiful beryl specimens as well as other New England beryl, such as the famous Rose of Maine beryl gem discovered in 1989—it is the largest beryl gemstone ever discovered; it was uncovered at the Bennett Quarry located in Buckfield, Maine. The Rose of Maine is an orange crystal is 9 inches long and 12 inches and weighs over 52352

know lots of em at the neighborhood joint. Jim, the deep thinking guy from up the street, sultry Sarah behind the counter, the guitar playing carpenter, the freshly graduated former school gal and her friend, couple other folks. I say I know them. I don’t know them, but I know them … here at the neighborhood joint. Eight o’clock in the evening—my workday is done and done well, and on this jewel of a warm humid, comfortable, 70 degree second night of the summer of 2010, at the neighborhood joint, I order my favorite; macaroni and cheese with ham, extra applesauce, hibiscus tea, and, a fudgy brownie. Could an evening be more delightful? Youngish girl I don’t know, slim, tight, dark, pretty—out of my league, comes in the joint, looks and walks directly at me and sits in the seat to my right. I exaggerate making counter space for her, acting like I’d be as accommodating if she were a he, or a not so good looking she. She orders a beer. She’s waiting for someone to join her, I think. She must be, pretty gal like her. Guy who works at a ski shop in town I bought socks at yesterday, tells me a coworker recognized me, says she was excited cause she thinks I’m a celebrity, says she was scared to say anything. I tell him I remember, she was a petite gal, pregnant. I tell him to tell her hey, to tell her I’m flattered. The ski shop guy and my exchange put the pretty girl wise, and half a minute later the pretty girl does the improbable. She addresses me. “Are you the guy in the television commercials?” I raise my attention from my macaroni and cheese and offer her a, if it’s possible to be both these things at the same time; perked up, subdued: “Yeah, I am.” She hardly watches T.V., but watching last night with her boyfriend one of my commercial’s ran and he said “check this guy, he does Vermont really funny.” I smile, she continues “It was the one where you eat the apple, the ‘Sunday One,’ one. And I walk in, and here you are.” I act unimpressed while doing my best to fabricate what I can of a faux embarrassed smile “oh yeah, the one where I eat the apple.” She nods. I return attention back to my bowl of noodles. Humans regularly define complete truth by what they see from a distance, and at the neighborhood joint, a church, gas sta-

The planet that never was


ou’ve no doubt heard of the planet Vulcan, Mr. Spock’s homeworld in the sci-fi universe of “Star Trek.” But did you know that Trek’s fictional Vulcan was named after a hypothetical planet thought to orbit close to the Sun? The search for the real planet Vulcan began in earnest during the 19th century. In the year 1859 the discoverer of the planet Neptune, the celebrated French astronomer Le Verrier, had learned of a report about a mysterious transit of an unknown object across the face of the Sun. Collecting data from the observer, Le Verrier scribbled the transit calculations on an envelope; the calculations demonstrated the very unusual nature of the planet Mercury’s orbit around the Sun. The hot planet’s excess precession (its direction change in rotation around the Sun) didn’t quite follow the rules of Newton’s laws of celestial mechanics, according to the great astronomer. “Le Verrier published a thorough study of Mercury's motion. This was based on a series of meridian observations of the planet as well as 14 transits... During Mercury's orbit, its perihelion advances by a small amount each orbit, technically called perihelion precession. The phenomenon is predicted by classical mechanics, but the observed value differed from the predicted value by the small amount of 43 arc seconds per century,” according to Richard Baum, author of “In Search of Planet Vulcan”. Of course, when the great Le Verrier spoke everyone listened — after all, the gentleman had discovered the planet Neptune in 1846. Surely, such genius must not be ignored. What caused Mercury’s puzzling precession? That was the rub. La Verrier was determined to solve the orbital mystery. As 1859 slipped away, the world’s scientific community was all ears in anticipation of Le Verrier’s final solution to the Mercury problem. Finally, on the morning following New Year’s Day 1860, after months of mathematical doodling, with figures scribbled upon even more envelopes, La Verrier announced that he had the solution — a solution both he and the astronomical community would come to embrace (even though in hindsight, the solution required a large dollop of crème brulée to go down easy). “Voilà! There is a new, undetected planet causing Mercury’s slow precession,” La Verrier explained to the world. “It orbits our Sun inside the orbit of Mercury.” Being so close to the Sun, La Verrier’s

planet was thought to be a very hellish place. Even though Vulcan had yet to be obBy Lou Varricchio served through a telescope, the proud French astronomer — riding the popularity wavecrest of his Neptune discovery 13 years earlier — boldly named the planet Vulcan — named after the ancient Roman god of fire. How can we observe Vulcan now, astronomers asked La Verrier? “Bah! Observation? That’s a mere detail. The math is all you need. Trust me, mon ami.” was the great one’s response. What follows was Le Verrier’s solution: •Vulcan has a nearly circular orbit at a distance from the Sun of 13,048,795.036 miles or 0.14 astronomical units (1 A.U. equals 93 million miles). •Vulcan’s greatest elongation from the Sun is 8 degrees (a seen from Earth, that is, if the planet could be seen at all). •Vulcan’s has a period of revolution of 19 days and 17 hours; its orbit is inclined to the ecliptic at 12 degrees, 10 minutes. But a planet such as Vulcan wasn’t the only way to explain Mercury’s slow precession. So, a few astronomers began asking themselves if a slight oblateness of the Sun was to blame? After more than a decade, there was still no evidence for the existence of Vulcan. When the astronomer died in 1877, he went to his grave convinced he had discovered two planets — Neptune and Vulcan. But with nothing to see, most astronomers gave up the search. By the early 20th century Einstein's theory of relativity handily explained Mercury’s perturbations — it was the effect of the Sun's gravitational field. While Vulcan may not exist as a terrestrial planet, a few astronomers continue the search for smaller, Vulcanoid asteroids; a Vulcanoid object might be found as large as 37 miles in diameter.

I don’t need to fuel the reputation I have for hitting on the “young,” ones. (Reputation completely cultivated for the purpose of selling tickets to those watching from a distance, proven effective I might add) So to skirt presumed guilt, I play possum. I eat more, but don’t say more. If the pretty gal and I are going to continue our relationship, it’s all up to her. I consider the odds, and past experience tells me it’s over between her and I. Then, improbability strikes a second time, like lightening. “The Vermont thing is great, I like it. I’m from New Jersey.” She speaks, and I’m so surprised, my right leg twitches, sending my knee into the underside of the counter. It hurts. But it’s a good hurt. Macaroni done, applesauce gone, still enough tea left to wash down a brownie, the pretty girl and I dive head first into small talk. What part of New Jersey … I like the macaroni and cheese here too … yes, it’s just the right amount of cheesy … the guitar player is good, I know him … aren’t these long days beautiful … Jersey just gets too hot … .

A perpetual state of crisis


ne of the observable ways in which politicians prove that they’re destined—indeed, obligated—to govern is their ability to produce a well-turned phrase. Case in point from the R.E. Chicago School of Politics: “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Its author used just seven words to describe the skillful use of events to move public opinion toward his preferred ideological position. Historically conspiracy theorists had invented, much earlier than the Emanuellian phrase, shorter acronyms to express the same crisis-utilization concept: LIHOP and MIHOP. You’ll recognize these from the discussions of the Pearl Harbor attack almost 70 years ago and the discussions of the Twin Towers attack almost 10 years ago. I’ll now add a new one: MIWOP—Make It Worse On Purpose. In terms of political intent, this falls somewhere between Letting It Happen On Purpose, which was the accusation against FDR, or Making It Happen on Purpose which is the accusation against GWB. In a recent column I outlined a probable example of MIWOP: the 1952 Presidential Campaign of 1952; it focused on subjects ranging from the Korean War (HST in favor, DDE against U.S. involvement in any land war in Asia) to the farm-economy and foodprice question (HST in favor of commodity parity price formula, DDE against and for “sub-parity” commodity pricing instead). Part of the Eisenhower platform was the “food costs you abused consumers too much” argument and the promise to end full-parity pricing even though the inconvenient facts showed that urban incomes had been rising farther and faster than food prices. Truman’s successor designate Adlai Stevenson avoided mention of the urban-consumer food-cost question in his platform and campaign—maybe because his predecessor had been a clear-cut supporter of full-parity for farm commodities. He similarly avoided mention of the higher consumer prices it would supposedly cause. Was it by accident, in 1951, that the “one pound of butter for two pounds of gold” pop tune was widely played on radio and the then-new T.V. during the DDE campaign? Was DDE creating a fake crisis, and Making It Worse On Purpose through incomplete statistics— talking about food prices doubling, but not about wage levels tripling, from per-WWII levels—and Tin Pan Alley publicity? You decide. Since then, there have been many such political MIWOP moments, suspected or obvious, major or minor, nationwide or local. Here are two: 1. The year was 1968, the location was Sudbury in Rutland County; the target was the last of Sudbury’s four one-room schoolhouses—a stone structure known as the Hill School. For 15 previous decades, it had served the elementary grades but was deemed inadequate by then-new Superintendent Lloyd Kelley (even though a modern version of “multi-grading” was already a trendy new organizational device in cuttingedge elementary and middle-school design and operation).

The “crisis too good to waste” was the retirement of the Hill School’s sole teacher, admired by the parents and respected by the students for her multi-grade teaching experience, skills, and evident student-achievement results; public opinion demanded a replacement with equal talents and abilities. Instead, it got—the superintendent’s choice with rubber-stamp schoolboard approval—a brand-new teachers college graduate who swiftly lost control. The super’s MIWOP strategy was to enable chaos: to leave her twisting in the wind without guidance or support until, by Christmas, the parents surrendered; they accepted school closure and student transfer with another one-roomer shut-down. The tiny schools debate continues in the rural U.S. and even in not-too-rural-anymore Vermont now; here’s one case where an educator ended it MIWOPstyle for his own ideological reasons. Years later, he said so. 2. Most MIWOP events are uncertain: consider, for example, the present Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. It’s a real (not a faked) crisis of engineering origin with engineering remedies—many of which haven’t been deployed because government hasn’t approved them. Is the delay in governmental action in the gulf traceable to benign neglect or malign intention? A recent Opinion Dynamic survey says that 58 percent of respondents consider the now-dominant political class—which is arguably responsible to a fiercely anti-oil, anti-carbon constituency—“to have done less than it could have” in enabling the company and local governments to take action. Where’s the line between just Letting-It Worsen through incompetence and Letting It Worsen On Purpose or a more accusatory possibility, Making It Worsen on Purpose? An engineering crisis which goes unsolved for ideological reasons—equipment and methods prohibited for deployment—may be an example of MIWOP, the long- term objective being the permanent discrediting of the oil industry. Think of the successful fake-crisis of 1979—the Three Mile Island anti-nuke campaign. Consider these 2010 decisions: 1. Reject skimmer boats from 13 countries; 2. Shut down the oil barges for a week for fire extinguisher inspections; 3. Shut down all deep- drilling even while investing $2B in Brazilian deep drilling; 4. misrepresent expert opinion on deep drilling in official report. 5. Deny approval of sand-dredging for barriers. Can MIWOP be the motivation for these decisions or do you prefer to award all five of them “plausible deniability”? I like the famous FDR quote: “Nothing in politics happens by accident.” Longtime Vermont resident Martin Harris now lives in Tennesee.

Across Vermont on horseback Woman takes horse ride against cancer By Lou Varricchio

OUTSTANDING STAFFER—Roland Palmer of Hinesburg, manager of Champlain College’s development operations department, was awarded the 2010 Elizabeth A. Durick Staff Service Award. The award recognizes a staffer who has had a positive impact on the college community. The award includes a $5,000 gift.

BRANDON — It takes vision and determination to take on a seemingly impossible goal. In the case of Forestdale resident Muffie Harvey, the seemingly impossible goal is riding horseback nearly the entire length of Vermont — alone. But it’s not just the challenge of a Paul Revere-style mission — in Harvey’s case, it’s fighting breast cancer that makes the challenge a very personal crusade. Harvey, a member of the faculty of College of St. Joseph and she is the campus dining director with Fitz, Vogt and Associates. Now she is riding to honor her mother, a cancer victim. To demonstrate her commitment in the fight against breast cancer, Harvey is riding her horse, Molly, the near north-to-south length of Vermont. The long-distance horse ride, already under way, will help raise needed funds for breast cancer research. On June 21, Harvey and Molly started at Southern Vermont College in Bennington. During a 24-hour-long period June 21-23, fair weather aided the horseback rider in accumulating miles. With ol’ Sol shining during that time,

Harvey got lots of thumbs up from auto and truck passersby in downtown Manchester. However, due to a threat of severe thunderstorms as she approached the Rutland County line from the south June 24, the rider had to hunker down to wait for clear skies. “I am taking backroads,” Havey told the Outlook via cell phone. “I am following the Otter Creek in some places. I can’t talk with you for very long. I am all by myself with Molly. I am determined to complete this ride,” she said. Following her departure at the SVC campus, Harvey’s stops will include Rutland, Brandon, Middlebury and points north. As a member of Vermont’s higher education community, Harvey has created a special “Campuses for Cancer”: part of the tour that includes the starting point — her alma mater Southern Vermont College — her employer, Rutland’s College of St. Joseph, Middlebury College, and a final campus stop at the University of Vermont. “Harvey was 15 years old when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer,” according to Ken Sheldon who is handling publicity for the trek. “She has been planning this trip for 20 years

Muffie Harvey to honor the courage of her mother, a two-time breast cancer survivor. Muffie’s fundraising ride supports the American Cancer Society and the Pink Ribbon Diva Foundation, a Rutlandbased agency that provides financial and logistical help to cancer victims.” For the next three weeks, Harvey will be riding tall in the saddle.

Vermont’s Prana to rock Hinesburg By Margery Sharp Editor’s note: Farmers markets are Vermont’s burgeoning seasonal gathering places. Markets feature healthy local foods, arts and crafts, music and are a flowering of a new community spirit. This is the first of an occasional series of stories about summer events and local food and crafts showcased at markets around the area. HINESBURG—When the band “Prana” steps up on the Hinesburg Farmers' Market stage on July 1, two of the four members will be Hinesburg hometown boys—Pete LaFreniere and Dalton Muzzy. Both men are graduates of CVU (Champlain Valley Union High School) and they've been playing music since junior high days and now have gone professional with their talents. Prana, which means “The Breath of Life”, is a bright new Vermont band which recently has come onto the music scene in a big way. Paul Poltz, a New Jersey boy, and Josh Glass, a Connecticut native, are the other two performers who will fill out the group for their Hinesburg performance debut. “Paul and I got together when we met at a rehearsal studio in South Burlington,” Dalton explained. “Paul had moved to Vermont recently in pursuit of his girlfriend. “We started talking and one thing led to another. We formed the band, which ordinarily consists of five members but our fifth guy, Sam Crawford, who plays the lead guitar, has music school classes the week we're scheduled to play in Hinesburg.” The music the band will play at the market will be a toneddawn version of the members' specialty-a combination of soul and rock. The two styles will play a softer sound, better suited to the market scene. Several of the songs on the band's first album, “Moments”, were written by Dalton and Paul. Dalton, who plays drums, says, he has taken performing

more seriously in the last four years with the success of Prana and the popularity of the group in Burlington and around Vermont. The band continues to make appearances in Bennington, Nyack, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, Albany, New York, and New Jersey. They also have played at the Champlain Valley Fair and recently appeared at an outdoor concert at Rocky's Outdoor Summer Concert Series in Williston. Notably, one of their “Moments” album songs, “Precious” received airplay throughout the month of April in Northeastern France on a popular radio station.

MIDDLEBURY—Several Addison County businesses have one thing in common—they are local samples of statewide listings on, a homegrown website managed by Christine Fraioli and John Nelson of Lincoln. Fraioli and Nelson combine their experience with their expertise and passions for Vermont, architecture, food, and art. This combination brings a commitment to matching prospective buyers with Vermont inns, bed and breakfasts, hotels, homes, and other investment properties. As summer season begins, both vacationers and Vermonters alike start dreaming of owning their own Ver-

mont inn or investing in country property, Fraioli offers several tips to identify the right type of property to begin turning the dream into reality: •Hone in on what you are looking for—there is a big difference between an inn and a bed & breakfast, a hotel or cabins. •Decide on the management style— do you want to manage the property or do you want to hire someone else to? •Are you looking for a career change or an entire lifestyle change? •Get familiar with the entire Vermont landscape—the topography is quite varied. Consider if you want to be rural, urban, or somewhere in between. n the mountains, on a lake, a river, a

farm? •Do you wish to operate year-round or seasonally? •With these questions answered, you can better identify compatible properties. Think about them for a while—how do they feel? The webmasters advice would be innkeepers to begin reviewing financial considerations including return on investment objectives, the sale of another property, qualification for mortgages, the possible need for Small Business Administration or Vermont Economic Development Authority support, or seller financing and lease purchase options.

Tremont repeats at Devil's Bowl Lake Monsters claim early division lead WEST HAVEN—Ken Tremont Jr. kept up his torrid pace at Devil's Bowl Speedway Sunday night, recording his second consecutive win in the 30-lap modified feature. In four weeks of racing at the Bowl, Tremont, the defending track champion, has yet to finish out of the top five, getting a fourth, a second and now, two straight wins. Although a misty rain threatened to end the night prematurely, the fans were treated to some outstanding racing in all divisions. Jimmy Ryan started on the pole in the modified feature, but Marc Johnson was quickly on the move, using the outside groove. Johnson used a slick move to get around Ryan for the lead and by lap eight, looked like he was going to run away to his first win of the season. After opening up a huge lead, the right rear tire on Johnson's modified exploded on the backstretch on lap 11. Tremont, who had already worked his way up to third, jumped out into the lead on the restart, but Ryan wasn't going to back down, and was back out in front by the time the two cars got the flagstand. Ryan, Tremont, Mike Bruno and Don Scarborough treated the fans to some great sideby-side racing before an incident on the front stretch gave Tremont the break he needed. Something broke in the

front of Jason's Bruno's modified, and he came to a stop by the flagstand. Tremont then proved to be best on the restart and beat Ryan to the finish line. Scarborough got around Bruno for third, and Vince Quenneville Jr. completed the top five. Alex Bell used a last-lap pass to earn his first victory of the season in the sportsman feature. Jared McMahon, also looking for his first win, jumped out to a huge lead and for a while, looked like he was going to win easily. But when McMahon got into lapped traffic, Bell was able to close the gap. McMahon, running the low line, did his best to keep the lead, but Bell went high coming out of the second turn with two to go to pull even, and then darted by McMahon on the final lap to come away with the win. McMahon, Kevin Wright, Chros Johnson and Hunter Bates completed the top five. Jon Miller extended his winning streak to three races in the Renegade division, but it didn;t come easy, as a number of invaders from Airborne Speedway made the trip to the Bowl. Bill Duprey and Randy Alger locked into a heck of a battle for the first six laps, until Duprey finally shook loose. But Miller had worked his way to the front and put a ton of pressure on Duprey, until finally rocketing into the lead going down the backstretch.

ERIKSEN’S MARINE Crow’s Nest Marina Route 7, Ferrisburgh, VT

Miller was first under the checkered flag, with Duprey second and Larry Underwood third. Bobby Lavair also took a trip to victory lane, posting his first win of the year in the Bomber Warriors division. Devil's Bowl will be putting on a spectacular fireworks display to highlight its 4th of July show. The sportsman will be running a 50-lap feature, and there will also be a 50-lap Pro-Stock/Super Street Challenge, paying $500 to win. Home track rules will apply for that race.

By Frederick Pockette The Vermont Lake Monsters won 7 of their first 10 games and as of Monday morning stood at 7-3 with a two game lead over the second place Connecticut Tigers in the New York Penn League’s Stedlar Division. The effort has been pretty much a team effort, which bodes well for Vermont if they lose some key players due to promotion. Hurler Bobby Hansen is the only individual to lead the league in a major category. His 17 strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings of work was tops in the league as of Monday morning. The last two of the first ten games was a two game split in Connecticut last weekend. Below is a wrap up of the short series: In the opener last Saturday Tiger ’s pitching held Vermont to just 4 hits, while their offense banged out a dozen hits to score 7 runs and cruised to a 7-1 win. Catcher Julio Rodriguez led the Tiger ’s offense going 3for-3 with a double and he drove in a run. Shortstop Brett Anderson drove in a pair of runs with his solo hit in 4 trips to the plate. Centerfielder Jeff Rowland, third baseman Josh Ashenbrenner, first baseman James Robbins and designated hitter Matt Perry all

drove in single runs for the victorious Tigers. Starter Josue Carreno picked up the win to go to 11 on the year. Carreno pitched five innings of shutout baseball, allowing just two hits while striking out 7 and walking just two. He was relieved by Drew Gagnier, who threw two innings of hitless baseball, allowing one unearned run with two strikeouts and two walks. Kevan Hess then finished the game strong for Connecticut. Hess pitched the final two innings, striking out four of the final six outs, with two hits allowed but he issued no free passes. Offensively there wasn’t much good news for Vermont. Shortstop Jason Martinson Was the most productive at the plate going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, and he scored the Lake Monsters only run. Third baseman Stephen King, catcher Cole Leonida and designated hitter Hendry Jiminez all had singles for Vermont to complete their offensive output in this one. Starter Bobby Hansen suffered the loss for Vermont allowing 6 runs (5 earned) on 10 hits in just four innings of work. Hansen, who leads the NYPenn League in strikeouts did register 7 more as he fell to 1-1 on the year. He was relieved by Mark Herrera

who went 3 innings, allowing just 2 hits and 1 unearned run with 2 strikeouts. Neil Holland finished up for the Lake Monsters with one inning hitless baseball that included a strikeout. On Sunday the Lake Monsters scored three times in the third and fourth innings to jump out to a 6-0 lead, and from their cruised to a 7-3 win to earn a split in the two game series. Second baseman Jimenez led Vermont’s offense by going 3for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Catcher David Freitas and center fielder Connor Rowe added a pair of hits each in four trips to the plate, and matched Jiminez by driving in a run and scoring once apiece. Fist baseman Ronnie Labrie chipped in with two hits in his five plate appearances with a double and an RBI. Starter Shane McCatty turned in a strong performance for Vermont, but didn’t get the decision because he only worked four innings. In those four innings he only allowed two hits and no runs while striking out two. Ironically he was relieved by Christopher McKenzie, who despite being the least effective pitcher for the Lake Monster, picked up the win to become 1-0 on the young season. McKenzie worked three innings and gave up three runs on four hits. Cameron Selik finished up for Vermont by pitching two hitless innings with four strikeouts and a pair of walks. Anderson blasted a three run homerun for the Tigers, thus accounting for all their runs in this one. Right fielder Ryan Enos added two hits in four trips to the plate and scored a run. Starter Lance Baxter suffered the loss and dropped to 0-2 on the year. Baxter pitched the first three innings and allowed three runs on five hits and three walks. His ERA rose to 10.50 after this outing. Vermont hosted the TriCity Valley Cats for three games this past Monday through Wednesday. They then hit the road Thursday for three games in Lowell before returning home on July 4 for a holiday clash against the Williamsport Crosscutters.

Couple donate timber to low-income Vermonters RUTLAND — Routine maintenance along a Central Vermont Public Service rightof-way will help heat the homes of low-income residents next winter, thanks to a surprise donation from a Vermont couple. CVPS maintains thousands of miles of rights-of-way, and contractors routinely trim or remove trees that have grown up to threaten power lines. Property owners own the trees in the ROWs, and sometimes use the cut trees for firewood or lumber, but the couple couple asked if the wood could be donated to help those in need. As a result, CVPS and Silent Heat, a local non-profit, are teaming up this week to remove the wood from its remote location along a power line west of U.S. Route 7, so Silent Heat can cut and split it

and donate it to local families in need. With a donation from CVPS, a local logger will drag the downed trees, which were donated by James and Deb Mithoefer, to a landing, and Silent Heat workers will take it from there. The Mithoefers plan to use the newly cleared right-of-way to pasture sheep. “Thanks to the Mithoefers, around 30 cords of wood will be available through Silent Heat,” CVPS Forester Bert Stewart said. “It’s nice hardwood for heating—maple, beech, ash and cherry.” Once cut and split, the wood will be worth approximately $5,000. “This will help numerous families when winter returns,” said Mark Tucci, executive director of Silent Heat, which also provides wood recipients with safety cans.

Each safety can, which is actually an ash bucket with tight-fitting lid, contains a fire extinguisher, a smoke alarm with battery, a soot stick, 211 information, and safety tips from the state fire marshal. “There’s an awful lot of wood up there,” Deb Mithoefer said. “We certainly can’t burn it all, and thought it would be the neighborly thing to do donate it. We’re happy to partner with CVPS and Silent Heat to ensure it goes where it is needed most.”

Stampede From page 1 children and that it would impact Kayla and her family's lives on a daily basis. “She would experience chest PT, nebulized antibiotics, enzyme capsules every time she eats to deal with digestive symptoms and the possibility of frequent two-week tune ups in the hospital to clear any lingering infections in her lungs caused by the sticky mucous. All of this and still the life expectancy was only to young adulthood. We knew that we could not accept this as fact and decided to do everything we possibly could to change it... “We decided to raise money to send to the CF Foundation to speed the research process and make the difference for Kayla and all of the other kids with CF in their lifetimes. There are over 100 people with cystic fibrosis in Vermont with at least nine kids in the five-town area. The advances in CF research benefits all CF patients as well as those suffering from other genetic diseases. “Every breakthrough made in genetic research and therapies for CF is knowledge that can be applied to other genetic diseases. Thanks to the incredible support of the extended community, this event is one of the largest grass roots fund raiser for the CF Foundation. The Stampede includes a craft market and lawn sale, silent auction, bake sale, 5K run, and the walk and roll a thon...” All money raised by Fire and Ice’s special meal program next week, and the Stampede event itself, goes directly to the CF Foundation, All of the people involved with the Bedard family are volunteers; nearly all materials and services are donated. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit donor-supported organization, is focused on the development of a means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.

Historical societies presenting at History Expo

Veterans From page 1 Mitchell said this year ’s response was a surprise—a very nice surprise. Over 127 local businesses have donated food and other items to the upcoming breakfast. Mitchell noted that a dozen or so volunteers from Addison and Rutland counties will work behind the scenes to help prepare for the big breakfast. The traditional, free breakfast is bound to please veterans of nostalgic military chow lines, Mitchell said, a place for friends and community. “Our buffet line will serve up pancakes, sausages, bagels, eggs, ham, coffee and much more,” he added. “We have a very dedicated volunteer breakfast crew,” Mitchell said, “including Debbie and Rick Oberkirch, Sally Forrest, George Mitchell, Don Crighton, Al Pockette, Ray Mitchell, Fred Pockette and others.” Mitchell said Dick Fossy, acting as event “chaplain”, will start the breakfast with a prayer and blessing. Mitchell said he expecting up to 200 guests, including veterans, at the July 24 event. “We were overwhelmed by the support in the community,” he said. Mitchell said World War II era memorabilia will be on display including several vintage military vehicles. All food leftovers will be donated first to local vets and then to area food shelves, according to Mitchell. “The public is invited. You don’t have to be a veteran to show your support for local vets,” Mitchell added.

EAST MIDDLEBURY—Two local historical societies, the East Middlebury Historical Society and the Ripton Historical Society, will present exhibits on their communities’ histories at the tenth annual Vermont History Expo, June 26-27. This popular two-day event is dedicated to showcasing stories and exhibits of Vermont’s local historical societies, and it takes place at the historic Tunbridge World’s Fair Grounds in Tunbridge. The East Middlebury Historical Society will display their exhibit “The Toy Piano”. In the last half of the 20th century millions of toy pianos were manufactured in Vermont and sold nationwide. If, as a child, you were lucky enough to own a toy piano it probably was made in Vermont. Come view a collection and hear about one town’s contribution to the making of this unique Vermont toy. The Ripton Historical Society showcases “Forest to Farm to Forest, and Then?”, old photos and documents of early farming in Ripton, plus mills, Joseph Batell's Breadloaf, the Flood of 1927, school, community house and church, and photos of the new school, school garden, current farming efforts, town buildings and church restoration efforts. The History Expo takes place Saturday June 26, and Sunday, June 27,10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, at the Tunbridge Fair Grounds, Tunbridge, Vermont. Admission $10 for Adults (good for both days), $5 for students (both days), Children five and under free; Weekend Family Pass $20. Half-price admission for those in period dress. Parking is free. No pets.

Vt. Marble Museum is free on weekends PROCTOR — The Vermont Marble Museum in Proctor has resumed its popular free summer-weekend admission policy for visitors. Admission is free on Saturdays and Sundays through Aug. 29. New to the museum this season is the stirring, patriotic Tomb of the Unknown Soldier exhibit. This is the visual story behind the production of the world famous U.S. military shrine, carved in Proctor in 1931, in honor of our American servicemen and women. Visit the Hall of Presidents, to view marble busts of presidents from Washington to Obama, and Geology Hall with interactive displays. The free on-site movie theater screens the story of Vermont‘s marble industry. The museum’s Resident Artist and Sculpture Gallery is also free on weekends and enables visitors to try their skills at sculpting marble. Picnics are permitted at the neighboring 19th-century Sutherland Falls Quarry site or on the Proctor Green across from the museum. The Vermont Marble Museum is located at 52 Main St. in Proctor.
