Man fires pistol near Route 22A

Celebrate the USA! Fireworks and Fun on the Fourth around the region

On June 24, at 12:20 p.m., Vermont State Police troopers were dispatched to the area of Route 22A and Mountain Road Extension in Addison for a road-rage incident. Addison County 911 dispatcher advised troopers that a firearm had been Edwin C. brandished and subGerlack sequently discharged by an operator of a vehicle. No injuries were reported. The complainant was willing to give a statement to state police. The suspect, Edwin C. Gerlack, age 49, of Essex was taken into custody without incident. Gerlack admitted to discharging the pistol in self defense but told troopers that he did not point or shoot it at Kristin Juliano of Burlington; Gerlack claimed he just discharged the weapon as a warning to her. No other details are available. Gerlack was found to be under the influence of alcohol and had a BAC of .250 percent. The firearm was a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

Teen charged in CVU bomb threat From Eagle Staff & News Reports Hinesburg Police said Justin Rich of St. George, age 17, a student at Champlain Valley Union High School, was charged with making a bomb threat to the school June 3. After a coordinated investigation, Rich was identified and interviewed by police. Police said he admitted making the threat through a statement to Hinesburg P.D. Deputy Chief Fred Silber. As a result of the bomb threat, the school was evacuated and closed June 3—at considerable public expense considering the various law enforcement, fire, and emergency agencies mobilized at the time. Key agencies involved included the Vermont State Police, Shelburne Police Department, the Hinesburg Fire Department . The Hinesburg Highway Department also aided the investigation. Charges against Rich are pending. He is currently in the custody of his parents.

A bridge too far—gone? A new agreement but no clear plans From Eagle Staff & News Reports The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) announced last week the finalization of a bi-state agreement between New York and Vermont for the progression of a project to rehabilitate or replace the Lake Champlain Bridge—with either a new bridge or a ferry boat—spanning Lake Champlain between Crown Point, N.Y. and Chimney Point, Vt. No work is planned until 2013, four years after the Champlain Quadricentennial. Tourists to both states this summer will cross a rusting bridge in need of serious repair. Exposed masonry rebar is visible in places on

Attorney Gen. William Sorrell announced last week that the Vermont Attorney General’s Office has completed a review of the police-shooting incident that occurred on Nov. 17, 2008, in Bristol. The office concluded, as a matter of law, that Vermont State Police Sgt. Stephen McNamara was legally justified in the use of deadly force when he discharged his firearm twice at Charles Cantin. The legal standard for the use of deadly force is whether the officer reasonably believed that he or a third party was in imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury, and that deadly force was nec-

essary to respond to that threat. The incident took place during the evening of Nov. 17, 2008, at 38 North St. in Bristol. Vermont State Police Sgt. Stephen McNamara, Trooper Peter Dempsey and Bristol Police Officer Ed Shepard were involved in attempting to locate Charles Cantin. McNamara and Dempsey were advised that Cantin was having mental health issues and was seeking to obtain a weapon. They then received information that an unknown individual had entered a second-floor apartment in Bristol. Given the information they had, it was reasonable to infer

that this individual was Cantin. McNamara and Dempsey went to the apartment building and ascended the narrow stairwell towards the door of the apartment. As they reached the small landing at the top of the stairs, Cantin opened the door holding what was ultimately determined to be a golf club in his left hand. Cantin was extremely agitated and non-compliant with the troopers’ requests. Dempsey pepper-sprayed Cantin. Cantin then swung the golf club toward McNamara and Dempsey twice striking the wall and door frame.McNamara believed that he and Dempsey were in danger of serious bodily in-

jury or death and shot twice, striking Cantin in the hand. Cantin was subsequently taken into custody. Cantin was eventually charged with Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer and Burglary and is being prosecuted by the Addison County State’s Attorney. Under the facts of this case, the Sorrel’s office concluded that McNamara was reasonable in his belief that he was in imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury when he fired at Cantin who was swinging a golf club at his head in an enclosed space. Given the serious threat, McNamara’s use of deadly force was reasonable and justified.

Richmond bridge reopens Stimulus dollars funded project From Eagle Staff & News Reports June 23 was a day to celebrate in Richmond. After months of major repairs to the Bridge Street Bridge—repairs that made routing automobile traffic through town a major nuisance—the reworked span was finally opened to drivers. Gov. Jim Douglas made a personal appearance to officially reopen the bridge and include public remarks about the use of federal stimulus funds for overdue repairs to Vermont’s crumbling highway and bridge infrastructure. Completion of the Richmond bridge project marks Vermont’s first use of federal taxpayer funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Douglas was joined by Vermont Agency of Transportation Secretary David Dill, Federal Highway Administration Deputy Vermont Administrator Larry Dwyer, Richmond Selectboard Chairman Pete Parent and numerous Richmond residents to celebrate the opening of the Richmond Bridge Street Bridge, which unoffically reopened for traffic June 19. “I want to thank the Agency of Transportation, Federal Highway and the Town of Richmond for their cooperation and hard work to get this project done so quickly,” said Douglas. “The quick and wise deployment of ARRA funds will help us make much needed and long overdue improvements to our transportation infrastructure. They will also give our economy a much needed boost during our construction season.” Vermont was awarded $125.8 million in highway and bridge funding through

the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, better known as the Federal Economic Stimulus Bill. Rehabilitating the troubled Richmond Bridge was Vermont’s first transportation project to utilize stimulus funds and create jobs. The long anticipated bridge opening occurred ahead of schedule and allowed the agency of transportation to meet its promise of having traffic back over the bridge before the town’s Fourth of July celebrations. “Thanks to ARRA and our

work with transportation leaders in the Legislature, during this construction season we’ll have over $103 million in transportation infrastructure projects happening all across Vermont,” the governor continued. “That’s why I want to remind the traveling public to slow down and pay close attention when driving through work zones and construction areas.”

Toe-clicker switch memories


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


discovered the first pulsars and gamma ray bursts in space. One reason to explain Capella’s exceptional brightness is the fact that the star we see from Earth is not a single sun, but four neighboring stellar objects made up of two binary pairs. So, Capella is, correctly, a four star system. Let’s take a look at the complex Capella star system— The first couple consists of very bright twin type-G giant stars (like Sun). But both G stars have a stellar radius nearly 10 times the Sun’s making them giant Gs. This first stellar pair orbit near each other. The stars in pair 1 are believed to be on the verge of swelling into red giants. What appears to be happening with pair 1 is exactly what the future of our Gtype star will be like. Capella pair 2, orbiting 10,000 AUs (short for astronomical units; 1 AU equals 93 million miles) from the first pair, are red dwarfs. The Capella system was the first group of astronomical objects to be imaged by an optical interferometer; its portrait was captured by the British Cambridge Optical Aperture Synthesis Telescope in 1995. One fact about the Capellan system that astronomers find fascinating is that it is a source of deadly X-rays. While researchers aren’t clear what’s generating the X-rays, some experts have suggested that the corona

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

When one star equals four here are lots of stars in the visible universe that stagger the imagination based on sheer size or mass, such as Betelguese or the Pistol Star (discovered in 1990 using the Hubble Space Telescope). Others stars are fascinating for their awesome flaming gas streams, such as Beta Lyrae or for their odd pairings and strange orbital dances, such as Capella. Capella was first recorded by the vanished Mesopotamian Akkadian culture in the 20th century B.C. Let’s take a look at Capella, also known by its astronomical name Alpha Aurigae, which turns out to be a complex system of four suns—not one. For those curious in name origins, the name capella is derived from the Latin vulgate meaning “she-goat”. This star system’s identification with a she-goat goes back through the mists of time. Capella, which appears as a bright yellow star, is visible in the night sky right now (see accompanying sky map). It is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga, the Charioteer, and the third-brightest star seen in the northern sky—Arcturus and Vega are brighter. Up until about the year 158,000 B.C., Capella was no. 1 in brightness in the northern night sky but thanks to changes in its magnitude in prehistory, Capella was pushed from the top of the heap. When you gaze at Capella you are looking across a gulf 42 light years. The light you see from Capella today left its surface in the year 1967, the same year three brave Apollo 1 astronauts—Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee— died in a fire on a Cape Canaveral launch pad and the same year astronomers

Vermont’s major role in our independence


of the system’s most massive star is the source. In addition to the pairs of stars already mentioned, Capella has six more visual companions—other suns that appear very close to Capella in the sky through an amateur telescope. However, these stars are not believed to be close enough to Capella to be included as part of the Capellan system. For those of us who live in the north, beautiful Capella is a year-round jewel in the night sky—it never sets. It is always visible from the northern United States. What’s in the Sky: Look for the bright star system of Capella in the northeastern sky after midnight this week. The planets Venus and Mars join Capella in the northeast on July 4 at 3 a.m. (see sky map courtesy of J. Kirk Edwards). Louis Varricchio, M.Sc., is a former NASA senior science writer.

hen we celebrate the Fourth of July this year, we should remember the contributions made by Vermonters in the fight for independence. In his “History of Vermont,” Walter Crockett made reference to Ethan Allen and the capture of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775. Crockett wrote, “The first surrender of a British fortress in the long struggle for American Independence was made to Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys, and in the history of the military affairs of the United States the capture of Ticonderoga hedged the list as the first important aggressive movement in the Revolutionary War.” Charles Jellison, in “Ethan Allen: Frontier Rebel,” wrote that Ticonderoga, “Must be considered a major military victory, for it drastically altered the power potential in the northern colonies and may very well have meant the difference between success and failure for the Revolutionary cause.” In the winter of 1775-76, George Washington, Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, found himself short of military equipment needed to drive the British out of Boston. Henry Knox, colonel of the artillery, suggested to Washington that captured military supplies from Crown Point and Ticonderoga could be transported to Boston. Washington, in a letter to Knox, wrote the following: “You're to immediately examine into the state of the artillery of this army, and take an account of the cannon, mortars, shells, lead and ammunition that are wanting. The want to them is so great that no trouble or expense must be spared to obtain.” In December of 1775, Knox removed heavy

military equipment from Ticonderoga. He floated the supplies on Lake George, and then transported the equipment by land with 42 sleds and 81 yoke of oxen. When these supplies reached Boston in March 1776, the British decided to evacuate and Washington’s military strategy prevailed. The following excerpt was printed in Earle Newton’s “The Vermont Story”: “Fort Ticonderoga's immortal guns go to General George Washington ... in the winter of 1776 ... over hundreds of miles of roadless, trackless, snow-clad mountains and valleys, through thick forest, over ice-covered lakes and rivers … on sledges pulled by oxen … in the charge of General Knox and his artillery men in their red-trim regimentals, who deliver the guns at Dorchester Heights. There, roaring down at the enemy, they drive him out of Boston Town.” The next year, in 1777, Vermonters fought with valor at the Battle of Bennington. Edward Conant said that the battle led to the British surrender of Saratoga, often referred to as one of the decisive battles in the history of the world. Washington was impressed by the fighting qualities of Vermonters, and

was of great assistance to our joining the Union. On Jan. 15, 1777, Vermont declared its independence from Great Britain and New York. Vermont's Declaration, influenced by the American Declaration, stated that “we will, at all times, consider ourselves as a free and independent state and the people have an inherent right of ruling.” The Vermont Declaration went on to support the War of Independence. While Vermont fought to win American independence, she was not admitted into the Union until 1791, 14 years later, to become the 14th state. The American Declaration of Independence proved a great example for Vermont to follow. When we celebrate the Fourth of July, we should remember the role of Vermonters in a revolution that changed the course of history. Vermont State Sen. Bill Doyle (R) is the vice chairman of the Vermont Senate Education Committee, vice chairman of the Vermont Senate Government Operations Committee and senate minority leader.

Vermont’s own Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4, and three other presidents (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe) died on that day. July 4 is also a significant day for 42year-old Jewish accountant Matt Friedman, the hero of the Saint Michael’s Playhouse production of “Talley’s Folly”. On July 4, 1944, Matt tries to win 31year-old Methodist Sally Talley’s heart. Although Matt (John Patrick Hayden) hopes that he can “waltz” to success with Sally (Abby Lee), he realizes that his wooing may result in some unwelcome Independence Day fireworks. Sally’s conservative father sees Matt as “more dangerous than Roosevelt himself,” and Sally’s bigoted brother Buddy has threatened Matt with a shotgun. Sally herself does not exactly race into Matt’s arms. To her, he is “one total, living loose screw.” Matt’s waltz may require quite complicated choreography. Matt’s courtship of Sally takes place in a dilapidated, moonlit Victorian boathouse built by Sally’s “Uncle Whistler” on the Talley farm in Missouri. The uncle wanted to build a gazebo, but when Sally’s father deemed a gazebo a “frivolity,” the uncle constructed the gingerbreaded boathouse instead. Although the boathouse came to be called “Talley’s Folly,” Uncle Whistler didn’t mind at all. According to Sally, her uncle “did exactly what he wanted

Red, white and blue: Patrick Hayden and Abby Lee, the stars of “Talley's Folly”. to do. He was the healthiest member of the family.” Is Matt Friedman Sally Talley’s folly? Can they come together despite their disparate backgrounds and amid fierce ethnic prejudice and intolerance? Will their deep, dark secrets prevent their union? In 97 minutes, “Talley’s Folly” tells the tale. Lanford Wilson won the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for his romantic drama. July 4 is our most American holiday,

and the New York Times has acclaimed Wilson as the “one living playwright whose rebel voice, at once expansive and compassionate, rates being called America’s own.” “Talley’s Folly” will be at the McCarthy Arts Center fthrough July 11. There will be only one show, a 2 pm matinee, on July 4. For tickets and other information, call 654-3281 or visit

Reader Mail: E-coupons and Confused Cashiers I

t’s time to answer some questions from readers like you who are learning to Super-Coupon:

Dear Jill, I never knew that I could stack a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon that I clipped from the newspaper. After picking up this tip I learned from you, I am already saving a lot! Here’s my question. One local grocery store I like publishes its store coupons in the weekly flyer. Another store puts them on its Web site, which somehow transfers them to your store card. How does this work? Is it worth trying?


Dear Shopper, Many grocery stores offer store coupons that can be electronically loaded to your store’s shopper loyalty card. Here’s how it works. If your store offers electronic coupons, visit the store’s Web site and look for the coupon area. You’ll be prompted to input the number of your shopper loyalty card. If it’s your first time visiting the site, you may also be asked to register for a free account. Once you sign in, a list of current coupons will appear. At some grocery chains, the coupons that appear on your screen are tailored to you, based on your purchase history collected through use of your loyalty card. If you’ve purchased diapers in the past you might receive discounts on other baby items. If you’ve purchased pet food you may see coupons for pet treats and supplies. You also may receive discounts for a brand that competes directly with a product that you purchase regularly. At other grocery chains, all Web site visitors are offered the same selection of electronic coupons. Regardless of how a store determines the assortment of coupons available to you, loading them onto your shopper ’s card is quite simple. Typically, the store’s Web site either loads all of the available coupons to your card automatically or it will prompt you to click the specific offers you’d like to add. Once they’re added, you’re ready to shop! You don’t even need to print the page from the Web site; the discounts will register automatically when your card is scanned at the register. Ready for the best part of electronic coupons? Because they’re tied to your shopper ’s card they function as store coupons, so you can “stack” manufacturer coupons on top

of them for even bigger savings. If you have a $1 electronic coupon for apple juice and add a manufacturer ’s 50-cent coupon you’ll save a total of $1.50.

Coupon Queen

By Jill Cataldo

Dear Jill, Do you ever have problems with cashiers? I went to the store yesterday with some coupons I printed from the Internet and the cashier told me they didn’t take Internet coupons. But I printed the coupons right from the store’s own Web site. Is there anything I can do? Dear Shopper, I’ve heard this question from other shoppers. I, too, have gone to the store with a fistful of Internet coupons, ready to slash my grocery bill dramatically, only to hear “We don’t take Internet coupons.” This can be frustrating to a shopper who knows that the store has always taken them in the past and, as you said, the store offers the printable coupons on its own Web site. So what’s a shopper to do? The answer can be found in the store’s own coupon policy. Many stores publish their coupon policies online so that shoppers can read them before coming to the store. If your store doesn’t have its policy online e-mail them and ask for a copy or ask for one at the customer service counter when you visit the store. Coupon policies are a shopper ’s best friend. They outline almost everything you could ever want to know about coupons. Does the store double coupons? Does it accept Internet coupons? Are there limits on how many coupons a shopper can use? Armed with these answers, you’ll be better prepared to shop at your favorite store. In many cases, you’ll also learn what I suspect is true in your case – that the store does accept Internet coupons (especially if the store offers them on its own site!) It appears that your cashier was simply confused about the store’s policy. © CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal.

offices open July 3 Plan under way to attract bioscience industry Post Some offices will close at noon Gov. Jim Douglas attended the kickoff event for the Vermont Biosciences Alliance last week. The Vermont Biosciences Alliances is a partnership of businesses that make-up Vermont’s growing bioscience industry as well as academic partners from the higher education community. “It is great to see business leaders from the bioscience community coming together to support one another,” Douglas said. “These cutting-edge employers will play a leading role in our economic recovery and provide great job opportunities for Vermonters.” The Vermont Biosciences Alliance launched its efforts at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, a member of the alliance, at its Colchester campus. The members discussed ways to encourage “angel funding” for biotechnology and life science business ventures; industry relationships to support and fund research; valuing

and commercializing intellectual capital; and other ways to grow successful technology based businesses in Vermont. “In recent years, Vermont has made progress in laying the foundation to support technology-based businesses,” the governor said. “But we have a lot more work to do to encourage growth and job creation in the technology sector of our economy,” he added. Douglas has made economic development and job creation a top priority and he has asked the legislature to do the same. Late last year, the governor proposed several initiatives, including a research and development tax credit, to spur economic activity and help Vermont emerge from the global recession. Douglas also proposed using $17.1 million in State Fiscal Stabilization Funds (SFSF) from the federal stimulus to invest exclusively in economic development over two years. These

funds were meant to support technology and small business loans, seed capital funding and early stage business support as part of his SmartVermont initiatives. While the Legislature agreed with some of the Governor ’s proposals, they invested less than half of the funds for year this year on in job creation – instead using this one-time money to pay for on-going government expenditures. The Vermont Legislature’s budget seriously under-funds several key economic development initiatives this year. “We need to support existing employers and offer incentives to encourage new companies to locate and expand here. If we want to emerge from this recession with a strong and robust economy, we need to get focused on job creation strategies that support employers,” Douglas said.

New one-sticker Vermont registration starts July 1 Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Bonnie Rutledge announced that effective July 1, the DMV will issue just one registration sticker to all vehicles. Currently, the DMV issues two stickers, one for each license plate. The new one-sticker system calls for the single sticker to be applied to the rear plate of the vehicle to be legal. A vehicle, however, is still required to have two license plates: one attached to the front and one attached to the back. The move from two registration stickers to one registration sticker is a cost-savings measure adopted by the Vermont Legislature as part of the Fiscal Year 2010 Transportation Bill. Starting July 1, vehicle registration renewals will be issued with one registration sticker printed with the vehicle’s registration information and the second sticker will be printed with the word “void”. The single-sticker requirement does not affect the number of license plates required on a vehicle. Vehicles that currently require two plates—such as cars, trucks and buses— will continue to require two plates. The single registration sticker, however, must be placed on the rear plate to be legal. Department of Motor Vehicle fees will increase on July 1. Welcome

Every year, Vermont dairy farmers are recognized for the high quality of their milk at the Vermont Farm Show. Awards are presented to dairy farmers based on results in each of five quality categories. Last year there were 15 dairy farmers nominees, from all corners of the Green Mountain State, representing five cooperatives, independent handlers, and independent farmstead cheese makers in Vermont. Four of the nominees produce milk using organic management methods, one is a farmstead cheese makers the rest operate traditional dairy businesses in Vermont. As a group, the nominees exemplify the varied approaches Vermont dairy farmers take to showing that “Agriculture Means Business to Vermont”. All of Vermont’s 1,097 dairy farms strive to produce high quality milk. The production of high quality milk begins with sound animal husbandry and the cleanliness of the cow and continues through the milking process including the cleanliness and maintenance of the milking and milk storage equipment. The Vermont Dairy Industry Association has sponsored the awards for many years. The awards are given to dairy farmers who have documented, through laboratory analysis, farm inspections and sensory evaluation, the production of

In recent months, the economic recession has created unprecedented challenges for Vermont’s 200 certified organic dairy farmers. After years of double-digit increases in consumer demand, reliable milk prices and impressive expansion in the number of organic dairy farms in Vermont, sales of organic dairy products nationally have decreased substantially. There is now an oversupply of organic milk in most markets. The two major wholesale buyers of Vermont’s organic milk, Horizon Organics and Organic Valley Cooperative have implemented mandatory milk price or production cuts to address financial and supply-demand imbalances. For a large number of organic producers the milk check now falls well short of covering the high cost of purchased organic feeds and fixed costs of production. Especially hard hit are organic producers who are new to organ-

the structure. And there were no plans to cosmetically dress-paint the structure for the international Champlain celebration now underway. HTNB Corporation of New York City has been selected as design consultant. The project is between NYSDOT and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VAOT), in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). HNTB is a national transportation infrastructure firm doing bridge rehabilitations and replacements. The design team will initiate work on the project once approved by the New York State comptroller. The bi-state agreement demonstrates the partnership between the states and the common understanding of the needs of the structure, with no specific plan. The project is considered to be in a preliminary planning stage and is expected to require the completion of an Environmental Impact Statement before a proposed solution is selected. Options include rehabilitation or replacement of the existing bridge or the use of a ferry boat. While not specifically noted by officials, bridge or ferry tolls could also be considered by the states. Old bridge reconstruction, new bridge construction, or a ferry boat to re-

ic farming; many incurred significant debt in transitioning to certified organic production and are still working to refine organic grazing systems and animal management practices essential to profitable organic milk production. To date, one of Vermont’s certified dairy producers has sold the herd for financial reasons; two organic dairy producers have lost milk buyer contracts to produce organic milk. The coming months will be especially difficult for many organic producers until consumer demand for organic dairy products, and farm milk checks, recover. In 2009, as it does every year, NOFA Vermont’s Dairy and Livestock Technical Assistance Program offers services and workshops designed to help organic dairy producers improve their organic farm practices and income.

place the bridge, would be tentatively planned for 2013. The 80-year-old bridge accommodates approximately 3,400 vehicles per day. There was no information provided by either state regarding the daily vehicle capacity of a ferry boat. The existing structure is a combination of a throughtruss, deck-truss and deck plate girders measuring 2,184 feet in length on 14 spans. Vermont State Rep. Chris Bray (D), whose legislative district includes the Vermont side of the bridge, said he has been kept up-to-date on the recent agreement. When asled how many local residents use the bridge daily, Bray said, “As I have heard, there are quite few Middlebury College and Agrimark employees who commute from New York (via the bridge).” Officials of each state said they recognize the significance of the bridge—but there is no certainty that the classic 1920s structure will remain after 2013. “The agreement requires the states to consider all reasonable alternatives to rehabilitate or replace the bridge, including replacement of the bridge with a ferry,” according to James C. Boni, project manager with the New York State Department of Transportation. The least appealing option, at least to some local residents and commuters, is a speculative ferry boat option.

ing and information about cost-cutting practices. NOFA Vermont’s Dairy and Livestock Program provides information about available low-cost loan and cost-sharing programs. Advanced technical workshops for organic farmers are regularly offered on all aspects of organic dairying, including milk quality, animal health and nutrition, grain and forage production, farm budgeting, pasture and grazing systems, on-farm composting and herd housing. A full series of summer workshops is planned. For more information about this summer ’s workshops and services offered by NOFA Vermont’s Dairy and Livestock Technical Assistance Program, visit NOFA Vermont’s webpage,, or call NOFA Vermont in Richmond at 802-244-6446.

The distance at the bridge site is short and daily commuter costs, as well as delays in queing for a vessel, would likely make this the least appealing option among local residents. An added ferry toll—or even a bridge toll—might be seen as a step back, not an improvement. Many local commuters and shoppers travel between both states via the current bridge. “In reference to tolling a bridge alternative, it is my understanding that, at an absolute minimum, a statutory authority and an additional agreement between New York and Vermont would be required. Tolling the bridge may also have implications on funding the project with federal funds. Therefore, while tolling a bridge is not completely out of the question, it is probably unlikely,” Boni said. “Otherwise the two states risk jeopardizing the federal funding associated with the project—this project is currently funded 80 percent federal, 10 percent New York and 10 percent Vermont.” Terri Meyfield, a Middlebury resident who commutes to work at a large retailer in Ticonderoga via the bridge, wasn’t too happy when a ferry option was proposed to her. “A toll ferry is a terrible idea. Replacing the bridge with a boat would make my life miserable. I am a single mother, and what little money I make now would vanish by paying daily tolls,” Mey-

field said. “Vermont’s new gas tax, my high property taxes, are just getting to be too much. Why are they taxing us more now, during the worst recession since the Great Depression? If this option is seriously on the table—well, then I am going to oppose it.” One of the first tasks the consultant will complete is an evaluation of the existing structure to determine the feasibility of rehabilitating the bridge, including cost of the work and potential impacts to motorists. All options will be identified and evaluated and public input will be solicited before progressing a particular alternative. A public advisory committee (PAC) has been organized composed of members of various communities and representatives of community groups. To date, three PAC meetings have been held to initiate dialog between the lead agencies and the PAC. The next PAC meeting will be held shortly after the design consultant begins work on the project. Historic, business, agricultural, residential, environmental, and recreational interests are represented on the PAC. The PAC will be one important method for the lead agencies to obtain stakeholder input early in the planning process when needs are assessed, objectives formulated, and alternatives evaluated for feasibility. Public informational meetings scheduled during the project’s design phase will provide an opportunity for community input. The bridge’s condition will continue to be monitored during the development of the project to ensure the safety of the traveling public.

McDowell’s heartwarming novel is one that will appeal to young readers, as well as their parents and educators. Carolina is a character that readers will be cheering for as her journey leads her to the new family that she has dreamt of being a part of. Already receiving critical acclaim, a starred review in Booklist said “McDowell reveals her love for this part of the world, savoring the language, the environment, and the traditions of mountain culture. Thoughtful readers will come to love it, and Carolina, too.” McDowell has spent many years living on farms, and currently resides in Vermont. She says “I was raised by farmers, my brother became a dairy farmer, I lived on and visited and worked on the farms of friends and I am living on a farm now.”

What does it mean to have faith? For 10-year-old Carolina, it means believing that she will find the one place where she can truly say she belongs. Vermont author Marilyn Taylor McDowell shares Carolina’s journey to fulfilling her dreams in her debut novel for young readers “Carolina Harmony” (Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers). Set within the backdrop of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains of the 1960s, McDowell’s lyrical novel reveals to readers the beauty and simplicity of mountain living juxtaposed against a world where the Civil Rights movement was in full force, and modern technology was starting to infiltrate even the smallest of towns. After a recent accident claims the lives of her parents and little brother, 10-year-old Carolina finds herself an orphan, with only one living relative to call family. Lovable Auntie Shen shows Carolina how to live off the mountains, and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. But when she falls ill, Carolina is left in the hands of multiple foster families who view her as just another mouth to feed. Forced to flee the homes she is living in, Carolina ends up at Harmony Farm, where the Harmony family takes her in and treats her as their own. Carolina’s heart tells her that this is where she truly belongs, but she is scared to let the family know about the events of her past. Is there a chance that she could really become “Carolina Harmony”?


Chiropractor Q: Can adjustments help me sleep better? A: I have had few, if any, patients come in specifically for help with sleeping. However, many new patients experience a clear improvement in their ability to get a better night sleep. This probably occurs for a couple of different reasons. First of all, when your back and/or neck hurt, it is often difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in. When you begin to feel better, you are more likely to be able to find a comfortable sleeping position. This translates to better quality and quantity of sleep. Secondly, when your body feels better, your mind tends to relax as well. Your feeling of well being is improving and this also allows you to sleep better. There is a certain peace of mind that comes over you when you know you are improving and regaining your health. The fear of what might happen if your condition either doesn’t improve or gets worse is commonly on your mind when you are suffering with pain. When the bulk of that particular source of stress is relieved, you may find yourself sleeping like a baby. “the greatest health is wealth” Call 388-6376, mention this article and schedule an appointment for a FREE Evaluation and X-rays. 37565

Nursing shortage pursists in Vermont Minister looks at grees, which reduces the pool for filling nurse educator positions, and limits the ability for state programs to graduate enough nurses, particularly those with college degrees. “Even though we’ve made significant strides forward in the past couple of years, there is still much work to be done to attract enough qualified nurses to Vermont,” Palumbo said. “If we don’t continue to actively recruit and educate new nurses, and find ways to accommodate the changing needs of older nurses to keep them in the profession, Vermont will be facing a significant deficit in the nursing workforce in the years to come.” The Vermont Blue Ribbon Commission on Nursing identified the state nursing shortage and released a set of recommendations to alleviate it. Since that time, the state of Vermont, often in public/private partnerships, has focused on filling the holes, either current or expected, in health care employment shortfalls.

year per heater. Unfortunately, alternatives are in short supply. Using a bubbler in this climate would not guarantee an ice-free tank and the cost of buying and installing solar-powered heating equipment outweighs the savings on your electric bills. But there is good news. Your answer is not in your heater but in the tank. You can keep the tank water


Q: I have a small Vermont farm and I must use stock tank heaters in the winter to prevent the livestock’s water from freezing. Is there a way of knowing how much of my electric bill is for these heaters? If it’s a lot, I’d like to know if there are energy-efficient or non-electric heaters. A: If you run 1,500-watt stock tank heaters for two hours a day for five months, you’re paying about $57 a

SHELBURNE— In another divisive election year, it’s always important to look back at our history. In an engaging new book, area author Gary Kowalski brings to life the complex creeds and personalities of America's founding fathers. Kowalski’s book confronts— from the perspective of its Unitarian minister author—many of the so-called myths about the religious views of some of the most notable figures in history. Offering clear and candid portraits of Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Paine, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison as both religious reformers and political rebels, this analysis tells the illuminating story of these unorthodox men of faith and thought and reclaims their spiritual inheritance for all Americans. Providing an examination of how the founders’ naturebased spirituality was tied to their fascination with science, this book includes discussions about Washington’s aversion to the word God in public pronouncements, Jefferson's mathematical calculations to show that the biblical great flood would have been impossible, and Paine's thoughts on the possibilities of alien life. Kowalski is the senior minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington. He is the author of “Goodbye, Friend”, “Science and the Search for God” and “The Souls of Animals.”

You also can partially bury the tank in the ground and insulate the ground around the tank. These approaches will lower your electricity costs by reducing the amount of time your heater runs.

to leave their position in 2003 compared with 18 percent recently). These figures come from an biennial voluntary survey mailed along with relicensure materials to 13,321 registered nurses in Vermont; and from the Vermont Health Workforce Assessment Survey, which was sent to top administrators in home health care agencies, long-term care facilities, hospitals and outpatient provider offices. Even in light of positive news of the nursing workforce, demographic trends are expected to exacerbate shortages in the near future. The mean age of registered nurses is 49, and 80 percent of RNs in Vermont are older than 40. At the same time these nurses will be retiring, the aging of the general Vermont population will create a stronger demand for nursing services. Current shortages are unevenly distributed, with certain specialties – including operating room and psychiatric RNs – experiencing workforce shortages that are higher than the mean. Further, fewer than 5 percent of RNs in Vermont have graduate de-


Results from studies of supply and demand for registered nurses in Vermont show several areas of significant improvement in longstanding nursing workforce shortages. But the stats released shouldn’t be taken as an indicator that there are not challenges ahead, said Mary Val Palumbo, director of the Office of Nursing Workforce at the University of Vermont. Results of nursing surveys conducted by the Office of Nursing Workforce, Research, Planning and Development show: A decline in vacancy rates for registered nurses in hospitals (12 percent to 6 percent), home health agencies (12 percent to 8 percent) and nursing homes (19 percent to 9 percent) from 2003 to 2007 as measured by the Health Workforce Assessment Survey. An increase in nursing graduates, from 128 in 2001 to 259 in 2006 (100 percent increase). Fewer nurses reported that they were likely to leave their positions due to retirement, despite an increase in nurses age 55-plus (34 percent of those likely

How to find a great children’s book By Wndy Mass The books we read as children have the power to change us. They transport us to faraway places, and return us safely home. The characters can seem as real to us as our own family and friends, and we laugh and cry along with them. Here are some ways to ensure the young readers on your shopping list get their hands on the perfect book. 1. If you don't have much time to search, look for books with award stickers on them. Dedicated committees of librarians spend a lot of time selecting the cream of the crop so you don't have to. 2. Pass along the books that you loved growing up. These are very often still in print, and often with updated covers. This is also a great way to bring you and your young reader closer. 3. For young children, bring them with you to the library or bookstore, and let them sample a few different types of picture books to see what art styles appeal to them the most. 4. Don't pass over classics like “The Cat in the Hat”, “The Chronicles of Narnia” or “Charlotte's Web”. Just because you've seen them your whole life, doesn't mean a child has. 5. Look for books that deal with the particular stage of life of your reader—everything from learning to share to dealing with bullies to relationship issues. 6. Describe your young reader's interests, hobbies, and reading level to a children's librarian or bookseller, and ask for appropriate recommendations. (Or if browsing online, put the child's interests into the search option of or and read reviews from kids on what comes up.) 7. Take your older children to the bookstore with you and give them the freedom to pick for themselves from the appropriate section, without judgment on their selections. 8. If you have a reluctant reader and are going on a trip this holiday season, try an audiobook. Perfect for long car rides, they can also be downloaded onto computers and mp3 players. When you give children a book, you are handing them a whole new world. What better gift is there than that?
