Out of Africa

By Lou Varricchio When Kathleen Colson was a national representative of the National Democratic Socialist Party while attending St. Lawrence University during the radical 1970s, she never dreamed that her future self would be bringing capitalist concepts of financial independence to some of Africa’s poorest women. Following a first trip to Kenya while a student in the waning months of the ‘70s, Colson didn’t realize that the fleeting first visit to Africa would someday grow into both an emotional and humanitarian bond. After living life as an anti-establishment ski bum out West, Colson found herself working in marketing and sales in the corporate world. But after a few return trips to Kenya by Colson, Hollywood’s 1985 tear-jerker motion picture “Out of Africa” burst upon the big screen. The Academy Award-winning film glamorized wildlife and author Karen Blixen’s romantic wanderings on the veldt; the film reignited Colson’s, and others, curiosity about traveling to Africa.

By 1986, Colson and her husband Check It Out: Your $50 to Doug developed a the 501(c)3 nonprofit custom safari busiBOMA Fund helps support ness called African one African woman as Safari Planners.

Business has gradually returned to pre9/11 levels. “My safari business is still going strong—and actually this year is my best year ever—but it really solidified a deeper commitment to Africa,” she said. In 2005, at the urging of a safari friend and member of the Parliament of the Republic of Kenya, she established the BOMA Fund to help native women establish small businesses that will provide them with incomes. Her husband Doug also got involved behind the scenes.

Festival-on-the-Green returns for year 32 A collaboration of community, arts MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Festival-on-the-Green kicks off its 32nd anniversary season during the week of July 11-17, commanding the spotlight under a big white tent on the Village Green in Middlebury. An highlight of the summer, the festival has remained faithful to its mission of bringing top-quality, free, familyfriendly entertainment to the residents and guests of Addison County since its debut. The 2010 festival week kicks off at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 11, with a performance by Kinobe and Soul Beat Africa, touted as the new voice of Ugandan music.

Brown Bag Specials, performances designed for families, are offered during the noon hour Monday through Friday. No Strings Marionette Company—the husband-wife team of puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson—present Treasure Hunt at noon on Monday, July 12, the first event of the popular noontime Brown Bag series. Other Brown Bag performers include musician-storyteller Rik Palieri on Tuesday; singer-songwriter-educators Gary Dulabaum and Josh Brooks on Wednesday; magician Tom Verner on Thursday; and the lively-goofy improvisational Swing Peepers on Friday. The festival will feature Middlebury native Jer Coons at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 12. Coons hit the ground running in

2009 with an impressive batch of new songs earning him comparisons to a younger John Mayer, or an older Nick Jonas, and everything in between. His song Legs is currently playing in Hollister stores. The Doughboys, Middlebury’s premier funky faculty rock band, showcases the talents of Steve Abbott, acoustic guitar, keyboard and vocals at 8:30 p.m. Mike and Ruthy, the folk-rock duo formerly of the Mammals, make a festival appearance at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13, to play songs from a new album. Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand appear at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, with an ensemble.

CORRECTION Last week’s page 1 story about the Mitchell family’s Breakfast for the Veterans event—to be held at the Brandon American Legion Post 55, July 24, at 8 a.m.— is held for area veterans and their guests. This second annual event is a special day to honor Vermont veterans from World War II to the Middle Easter conflicts. Unfortunately, due to limited funds and resources, it is not open to the general public. The Eagle regrets any confusion. We thank all of our brave veterans for their service to the nation. —Lou Varricchio

Do creatures long considered extinct still stalk the Earth? Tim Albright of Castleton thinks so. Albright, an amateur cryptozoologist (a person who studies legendary animals), has been searching for Bigfoot — aka Sasquatch as the ape-like creature is known in Native American legends of the Pacific Northwest. The 67-year-old retired security guard got interested in Bigfoot when he learned about sightings of the beast near Vanderburg Mountain near Whitehall, N.Y. and in the socalled Bennington Triangle surrounding Glastonbury Mountain in southern Vermont. “Bigfoot has a very wide range,” Albright said. “There are reports of the creature in the Adirondack foothills as well as in the Taconic and Green Mountains.”

There are organizations focused on Bigfoot in New England and New York — the best known being NESRA, the Northeast Sasquatch Researchers Association — but Albright prefers to work alone in the woods dressed head-totoe in hunter camo with a camera and portable tape recorder — and plenty of DEET insect-repellent. “Some of the research groups have good intentions, but then they go barreling into the woods with ATVs and kids in tow,” Albright said. “Heck, that’s a sure way of chasing

Lovin’ in a lonely land Continued from last week—


e continue with talk but I’d not call it small

talk. “My boyfriend and I are all through, I’m going back to New Jersey, ”she said. Bam, she landed that clinker like ton a bricks. Do I assume she’s just conversationally hung out a vacancy sign? Or do I read a note of sadness in her tone from which she’s trying to milk sympathetic council? Hard to say, when you’re in the moment, and you’re clueless. Ignoring her relationship status update I ask, in a way not unlike a doctor asks a patient when they might have first noticed the swelling, what she plans to do when she gets home to New Jersey. “I have no idea. No plans. I don’t really know.” Mmm. It wasn’t an—I have no idea, I have no plans, I don’t really know, because I’m heart broken over my break-up. It was more like an—I have no idea, I have no plans, I don’t really know, so if you ask me to go for a ride right now, I’ll go. Was I savvy enough to read between the lines? No. So I played her cue with boring sincerity—“Well, you don’t have to know. You’ll figure it out.” Hello, operator? Yes, I’d like to place a call. I’m looking for—uh, the family jewels; I seemed to have misplaced them. Ah, the pain of a skinny white boy bred in the lap of a sturdy, warm, solid Christian home that oozed goodness from every pore; a clean home from which the F word never flew. A home where parents clinked tiny glasses of orange juice over breakfasts of cereal with fruit, buttered white toast, and cups of coffee, every morning. A home that hosted cozy, chocolate chip cookie-themed, tradition steeped, Jesus-based, cold-snowy-jingle-belled family only holidays, the likes of which singer Andy William’s late 1960s-era Christmas television specials couldn’t hold a candle. The skinny white boy couldn’t know what ma’s and pa’s relationship was really like, but that didn’t matter. That the skinny white boy’s needs were always cared for, a by product of ma’s and pa’s disciplined relationship and fundamental rearing; that mattered. The skinny white boy believed—well beneath his core— that his type of home life was the good life, and the only life. He thought every family in the world opened presents on Christmas morning. What that type of home life is happens to be the type that can set you up for a charmed life. What that type of home life is not, is the type that teaches you how to pick up women for potential easy lovin’. And here now—at almost 50 years old and without a wife and kids—easy lovin’ is the only lovin’ there is. I can’t seem to navigate well through this meeting between the pretty girl and myself. But reader, don’t give up hope, the story continues. To be continued.

Will the Moon be still as bright? O, we'll go no more a-roving So late into the night, Though the heart be still as loving, And the Moon be still as bright. —Lord Byron


am gazing at a color postcard of a beautiful oil painting, titled “Devonian Moon”, created by my friend the artist and amateur paleontologist Kristen Wyckhoff. Kristen’s painting depicts a giant, bright Moon shining through gauzelike clouds above the shoreline of a prehistoric sea. Kristen’s speculative scene shows an upstate New York vista as it probably looked 380 million years ago. Kristen’s original 24” x 36” canvas imagines the Town of Gilboa, N.Y., southwest of Albany, as it looked during the impossibly remote Devonian Period of geologic time. This prehistoric scene is both alien and familiar to modern eyes, especially the appearance of a larger-than-normal full Moon. During the construction of the Gilboa Dam and Schoharie Reservoir in the 1920s, the fossilized remains of Earth’s earliest trees were uncovered; these towering trees were the ancestors of modern ferns and horsetails. The Gilboa forest grew near the shore of the vast, inland sea depicted by Kristen in “Devonian Moon”. The discovery of these world famous fossilized tree stumps and other plant parts made scientific news around the world. Today, several fossil stumps—members of the genus Eospermatopteris—may be observed at both the Gilboa Museum and at an outdoor display in front of the local post office. Kristen was inspired to paint “Devonian Moon” when she first came across a reference about the Moon being closer to Earth during Devonian times. “I learned that the Moon was half the distance closer to the Earth than it is today,” she said. “That inspired me to paint ‘Devonian Moon.’” Kristen’s depiction of our Moon, as it appeared millions of years before dinosaurs emerged on Earth, begs the question— what of our Moon in the distant future? Astronomers tell us that the Moon is slowly receding from Earth. The Moon's orbit has been growing ever larger—estimated at a slow rate of 3.8 centimeters annually—since prehistoric times. Factor millions of years past and Luna was closer to Earth; but factor millions of years hence, and Luna will be farther from the Earth. “Tidal friction, caused by the movement of the tidal bulge around the Earth, takes energy out of the Earth and puts it into the Moon's orbit—making the Moon's orbit bigger, but a bit paradoxically, the Moon actually moves slower,” according to Dr. Britt Scharringhausen of Beloit College in Wisconsin. Scharringhausen is a professor of astronomy and physics. “The Earth's rotation is slowing down because of this. One

hundred years from now, the day will be 2 milliseconds longer than it is now. This same process took place billions of years ago, but the Moon was slowed down by the tides raised on it by the Earth. That's why the Moon always keeps the same face pointed toward the Earth. Because the Earth is so much larger than the Moon, this process, called tidal locking, took place very quickly, in a By Lou Varricchio few tens of millions of years,” she said. While it won’t be as large in the sky as it is today, the Moon of the far future will—with a nod to Lord Byron—be still as bright 500 million years hence. Scharringhausen writes that just because the Moon is moving away from us inexorably, it will most certainly not recede so far from us that it will fade from naked-eye view. “Changing the Moon's distance by a few percent won't have any significant effect on our ability to see it,” she notes. “Changing the Moon's average distance by a few percent— which is what will happen over the next 500 million years or so—will similarly not prevent us from being able to see the Moon, and to see it quite easily with the unaided eye.” While the size of our future Moon will appear visibly smaller here on Earth, its surface brightness will be about the same as it appears right now. “This is because although we will be receiving less total light from the Moon—since it is farther from Earth—that light will get concentrated into a smaller region of our field of view, and the two effects cancel out,” Scharringhausen adds. While the vastness and seeming indifference of the cosmos offers up scant surety, we can take small solace in knowing that hearts 500 million years hence—if they survive that long—will likely be still as loving, and the Moon will be about as bright.

Vermont’s forgotten petro spill


ecent petrochemical-related events at latitude 28, longitude 88 bring to mind a somewhat similar—but smaller-in-scale—event some 25 years ago at latitude 44, longitude 73. Both spills involved petroleum, regulations, leaks and the quintessential governance question of our times: pursuing your chosen enterprise, you must do everything in accordance with the applicable regulations, obtain official approval for equipment design and installation, and pass all operational inspections. And if there’s a failure—whose fault is it? From the regulator ’s past and present behavior, we can see that the answer would be: even if you meet all our requirements and there’s a failure, it’s not our fault. This existential question was already under examination in the construction industry before the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill—actually in Williamstown, Vt., although not in its own little “gulf”, and actually involving benzene and related petroleum-based volatile organic compounds, although not crude oil and methane. Architects and builders had already come to realize that there’s a better way to get the building you want than writing it all out, in stupefying regulatory detail—in the project specifications manual which traditionally had been intended to control every aspect of materials and installation. The better way had already come to be called performance specifications. It was already beginning to replace the prescriptive specifications method we had been taught in university vocationaltrade schools. For example, in concrete work the objective was in-place concrete strong enough to support the building—a target strength usually described as 3,000 pounds compressive strength per cross-sectional square inch; architects like me wrote the specs to describe and control every detail of the materials: the mixing, and the placement. Somewhere near the last page of the manual there was mention of the 3,000 psi target (how it would be tested for, and when removal and replacement would be required). Understandably, the concrete contractors didn’t like that heads-we-win-tails-you-lose approach; they defended themselves by demanding that we designers approve, separately and specifically, each aspect of materials and installation. Ultimately, the architects and engineers (mostly) agreed, and now it’s more common to designate the desired design objective for concrete but not every little aspect of materials, mixing, and placement. Public education chose to stay with prescriptive, not performance, specs as the recent Vermont-led lawsuit against the Federal No Child Left Behind requirement—almost all students “proficient” in reading and math by 2014—has demonstrated. In the BP spill case, every aspect of the deep-water drilling had been prescribed and regulated by government—right up

to the moment of failure. In the Williamstown situation, the dry-cleaning business Unifirst sought and received special official Montpelier sewage-disposal-design-and-installation-assistance and approval for its septic system. The installation and operation met every regulatory standard. Then it failed. Benzene showed up in drinking fountains at the next-door elementary school. Mothers—how can I say this graciously— reacted negatively. Vermont Health Commissioner Roberta Coffin defended both her department and the Agency of Natural Resources by stonewalling. Protestors—many of Vermont’s Beautiful People class—at the health department headquarters in Burlington yelled “You’re not gonna treat us like a bunch of farmers!” Then, somehow, it all went away behind closed-doors. Was the regulatory system ever held as being even partially responsible for its deficient prescriptive specs? Not officially. Unofficially, in secret legal bargaining, maybe. We’ll never know. In the off-shore New Orleans situation, the same governmental regulatory oversight was enforced on the compliant oil-drillers. The installation and operation met every regulatory standard and inspection. Then it failed. Oil showed up on the surfaces of water and wildlife. The public—how can I say this graciously—reacted negatively. Will it ultimately all be secretly settled, just as in Williamstown? Probably. Will the feds reject even partial responsibility? Probably yes. Will they relinquish writer-and-inspector job-creating prescription specs and adopt a performance spec approach to regulation? Probably no. If you’re bemused by my lat. 44, long. 73 map reference (an inland locale), you’re probably one of those non-rural New Vermonters who doesn’t recognize such Old Vermont land and farming terminology as headland, link, pins, proud, rod, rood, rowen, or summer meadow either. It's not in my job description to bring you to “proficient” in Anglo-Saxon/Middle English /northern New England etymolog, without bonus pay. You’ll have to look it up. Warning: some language and geographical proficiency required. Longtime Vermont resident Martin Harris now lives in Tennesee.

SALISBURY — As a result of the tragic deaths on frozen Lake Dunmore last winter, the Salisbury Fire Department has been raising funds for vital ice-rescue equipment; in addition, Salisbury F.D. is stressing needed winter rescue techniques. Volunteers hosted a breakfast at the Salisbury Elementary School along with a dance and an auction at Middlebury American Legion Post 27.

Unique clocks to be auctioned VERGENNES — Over 25 Vermont artists have donated their time and talent to create and decorate clocks for a Vergennes Lions Club fundraising project, “It’s About Time”. Each working clock is unique and one of a kind. The clocks are decorated using paints, stained glass, decoupage, wood-burning, jewelry and beads, nature items, found objects and more. The Vergennes Lions Club will sell the clocks by silent auction during French Heritage Days in Vergennes on Saturday, July 10, at Creative Space Gallery, 235 Main St., 11 a.m.-4 p.m. A public preview of the clocks and an artist reception will be held at the Creative Space Gallery on Thursday, July 8. Funds raised through the “About Time” project will help meet Vergennes Lions Club goals to help those with vision and hearing impairments, benefit the elderly and people with special needs. Contact Betsey Benton at 802 877-3243, or Paul Vachon at 802 877-2718 for details.

“Where nothing is overlooked but the lake.”

SATURDAY July 10, 2010

Bigfoot From page 3 away Sasquatch. These creatures are very secretive.” Albright said there was a well publicized 1976 bigfoot encounter made by Whitehall, N.Y., police officer, Brian Gosselin along Abair Road; the road is located between Fair Haven and Whitehall off County Road 11 (Washington County, N.Y.). The rural road has been the center of other sightings since Gosselin’s famous encounter. The Abair Road encounter was featured on “Unsolved Mysteries,” a popular television show of the 1990s host-

ed by the late actor Robert Stack. Millions of viewers learned about the Whitehall creature — but was it Bigfoot or something less exotic? Albright said Paul Bartholomew, a Whitehall researcher, proposed an ordinance to protect Bigfoot in the town of Whitehall back in 2004. “Paul wrote the excellent book “Bigfoot: Encounters in New York and New England” which inspired me to search for the creature locally,” he said. According to Albright, NESRA researchers explored the Whitehall-Fair Haven region in search of Sasquatch as recently as 2005. “There’s sure a lot of in-

terest in Bigfoot around here; Officer Gosselin wasn’t the only well-respected member of the community to see Bigfoot up close,” Albright added. According to Albright, Bigfoot sightings have been reported here as far back as the First Nation Iroquois. “There are legends of mysterious stone giants as well as sightings of ape-like giants all along the St. Lawrence River and on through the Great Lakes,” he noted. “Even Samuel de Champlain reported seeing a Sasquatch in Canada during the 1600s.” Albright’s deep woods adventuring has turned up several clues. He said he has found evidence of a giant apelike creature that freely

crosses forested lands between U.S. Route 7 in Rutland County, Vt., and the eastern shore of Lake George, N.Y. In Albright’s possession, he claims, is a plaster cast of a footprint he found along the shore of Vanderburg Pond, on the west side of Vanderburg Mountain (West Mountain) near Whitehall. “The footprint looks nearly identical to the giant prehistoric ape Gigantopithecus blackii,” he said. “This hairy guy was the original King Kong of the Ice Age. Cavemen probably tangled with him.” Albright declined to show the footprint cast which he said is at his brother ’s house in Lancet, R.I., for safe keeping.

THE EAGLE - 9 According to Jack Rink, associate professor of geography and earth sciences at McMaster University in Canada and hominoid expert, Gigantopithecus died out 300,000 years ago. The huge ape or hominoid measured 10 feet tall and weighed up to 1,300 pounds. “Gigantopithecus was in the landscape with Homo erectus up until 300,000 years ago, at a time when humans were undergoing a major evolutionary change. Guangxi province in southern China, where the Gigantopithecus fossils were found, is the same region where some believe the modern human race originated,” according to Rink. But Rink, like many scientists, dismisses amateur

claims such as Albright’s that Gigantopithecus, aka Sasquatch, is still a living species. Albright said his local Bigfoot is big. ”You should visit Hartwick College to see the Gigantopithecus statue on the campus,” he said. “This will give you an idea of the size of Whitehall’s creature,” New York artist Kevin Anderson sculpted a full-size, lifelike version of the extinct hominoid in 2008. Despite scientific skepticism regarding claims of living animals that should be extinct, Albright is not giving up his crypto crusade for the elusive woodland ape.

CVPS unveils solar array RUTLAND—Embracing renewable energy and hoping to educate Vermonters about it, Central Vermont Public Service unveiled its new Rutland Town solar project and renewable energy education center June 22. CVPS President Bob Young was joined by Gov. Jim Douglas and representatives of the Stafford Technical Center and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers-Local 300, who helped build the most publicly accessible solar project in the state. “This will be much more than just a solar project,” Douglas said. “It is a true renewable education complex, with hydro generation across Route 7, and a wind measurement tower that may be replaced with a wind turbine or two in the future. Together with the educational displays, these

generation facilities will educate thousands of Vermont students who will be welcomed in the next few years.” Along with the solar display, CVPS installed six museumstyle educational displays that will provide visitors with a self-guided look at the array and other forms of renewable energy. While formal tours will be available to schools and other organizations, the displays highlight CVPS’s power supply history and explain how five different renewable energy sources create electricity. The displays are designed for all ages, and provide simple but factual explanations of generation via wind, water, biomass, sunlight and cow manure, or CVPS Cow Power™.

WATERFALLS—Despite some heavy rain in late June, the volume of water at Bittersweet Falls—located near Monument Farms Dairy in Weybridge—was still slightly below average. The tree-shaded glen below the falls has been a popular destination for Middlebury College students, in search of a swimming hole, since the 19th century.

The 50-kilowatt solar project includes 264 solar panels, each 3 by 5 feet wide, mounted eight at a time to create 33 individual, stationary modules. Under ideal sunlight conditions the project can produce enough energy to power about 50 homes; over the course of an average year, it is expected to provide enough energy to meet the entire needs of 10 to 11 homes. The approximately $400,000 project was funded by CVPS, a rebate on insurance related to the sale of Vermont Yankee, and a grant from the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund.

Blueberries: Easy to grow and healthy, too University of Vermont

Blueberries are one of the most popular and healthful fruits, are easy to grow, and can be grown as an ornamental shrub. Many have colorful red fall leaves. If you like eating blueberries from the store or picking your own, consider if you might have the space and conditions for growing them in your landscape. The most important aspects for growing blueberries successfully are choosing hardy varieties and having the right soil. There are five main groups of blueberries, representing three main species. The northern highbush (Vaccinium corymbosum) and lowbush (Vaccinium angustifolium) are the main species for northern gardeners, as well as hybrids of these called “half-high”. While the highbush reach from 6 to 15 feet high, depending on climate and cultivar (cultivated variety), the lowbush only reach a foot or so high. The halfhigh reach from 3 to 5 feet high. These northern groups need sufficient cold to produce flowers, then fruit, so are not suitable for southern gardens. There you’ll see rabbiteye and southern highbush cultivars. There are many cultivars to choose from within each of these groups, varying mainly in time of bloom and fruit size. When choosing blueberry cultivars, you’ll want at least 2 if not 3 different ones for cross pollination unless they are one of the few listed as “self fertile”. Make sure to choose ones from the same group as, for instance, a low bush wont pollinate a highbush type. Make sure too that they are listed to bloom the same time. You’ll find cultivars listed as early, mid, or late season. Although this often refers to ripening of the berries, relative bloom time is similar except for some commercial cultivars. So the bees can move the pollen among your different bushes, plant them near each other or preferably intermixed. Other than getting the right cultivars, you’ll need the right soil for blueberries to succeed. They like plenty of organic matter in the soil, and well-drained soils so roots don’t rot. Perhaps the most important point though is to have acid soils—ones with a low pH of 4.5 to 5.2. You can probably get by with a pH of up to 6.0 if you use plenty of peat

moss which is acidic. Sulfur also can be used to lower the pH. If soils are more alkaline (most plants grow best with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0—the latter being neutral), it may be more work yearly to try and lower the pH than worth it. One solution if the soil pH is too high is to get a shorter cultivar, such as lowbush or half-high, and plant in a container. Just make sure it is large enough, perhaps 15 to 20 gallon size, or 18 to 24 inches wide and 12 to 15 inches deep. You can plant container and all right in the ground. If left above ground, make sure to bring into an unheated shed or garage over winter that wont allow the soil to freeze. Ample ground heat protects roots in the ground during winter, something roots above ground in pots don’t get. Container blueberries also are great for small gardens. When planting in containers, use half peat moss and half potting soil. Once you have the right cultivars, and soil, plant as you would other shrubs. Give enough space—at least 5 to 7 feet apart for the highbush, 3 to 5 feet apart for the

half-high, and 2 to 3 feet apart for the lowbush. Add plenty of peat moss or compost, or both, when planting. Blueberry roots are near the surface and sensitive to drying out, so don’t allow them to dry before planting and water well once planted. Keep them well-watered until established, and even later when droughts. Several inches of mulch helps retain moisture, and helps prevent weeds. Hand-pulling weeds is best so not to damage their shallow roots with a hoe. Since blueberries usually begin bearing fruit when 4 to 5 years old, buying older and larger plants will give you fruit in fewer years. You don’t really need to prune bushes, except to remove broken or rubbing branches, until they are much older. They do need some fertilizer, such as a cup of 5-3-4 or similar for young plants, more for larger mature ones. Apply this in early spring, and perhaps again in late June. Don’t apply much later so plants will harden properly for winter. Also you can use acidic fertilizers as you find for azaleas and hollies.

If leaves are reddish or have reddish dots, and are overall light green to yellowish, they may need more nitrogen such as from ammonium sulfate. If leaves are light green between veins, this is a common symptom indicating iron deficiency. This, in turn, may mean the soil pH is too high. Check it first, and correct if needed, and the iron deficiency may be solved too. Whether you grow your own or just pick blueberries locally, berries are simple to just wash and freeze for use through the rest of the year. Eating more blueberries, even making and drinking blueberry juice, you’ll realize a range of health benefits. Not only are they the highest fruit in antioxidants, but they contain other compounds as well that help your immune system fight infections, help to reduce belly fat, promote urinary tract health, preserve vision and brain health, reduce the risk of heart disease, aid digestion, help prevent certain cancers, and serve as an antidepressant to keep you in a good mood. And you thought blueberry pie just tastes good.

Lake Monsters sweep Tri-City Frustrated with your computer?

Computer Sales & Service 29 Seymour Street, Middlebury Next to County Tire

Vermont Lake Monsters pitching dominated the TriCity Valley Cats by throwing three straight shutouts at them in a three game series played at historic Centennial Field in Burlington last Monday through Wednesday. In the threegame series with Tri-City, the Lake Monsters allowed just 10 hits with eight walks and 24 strikeouts in 27 scoreless innings. It is the first time in Vermont history that the Lake Monsters have recorded three straight shutouts. The Lake Monster improved to 10-3 with the sweep and remained two games ahead of Connecticut in the New York-Penn League’s Stedlar Division. This is the club’s best start in the team’s 17-year history. In the series opener Monday night Stephen King and Ronnie LaBrie each led off an inning wth a home run and three Lake Monster pitchers combined on a fourhit shutout as Vermont beat the Tri-City ValleyCats 2-0. King led off the fourth inning by lining a 3-2 pitch from Valley Cat starter Carlos Quevedo just inside the leftfield foul pole for his second home run of the season to give Vermont a 1-0 lead. One inning later LaBrie hit the first pitch of the inning from Quevedo over the leftfield fence to give the Lake Monsters the 2-0 lead. It was LaBrie’s first home run of the season and his first home run for Vermont since going deep last season in the season-opener at Lowell June 19. Vermont starter Taylor Jordan (1-0) allowed just three hits with two walks and five strikeouts over five innings to pick up his first win of the season. Jordan has now allowed just two earned runs with 14 strikeouts over his first 14 2/3 innings in three starts for the Lake Monsters. Tri-City’s best chance to score came in the top of the second when a Ben Heath leadoff double and a LaBrie error gave the Valley Cats runners on first and third with no outs. But Jordan struck out Daniel Adamson looking, got Nick Stanley to fly out to shallow left and Oscar Figueroa to groundout to get out of the jam. Reliever Ben Graham gave up one hit with two walks and three strikeouts in three scoreless innings, while Dustin Crane tossed a perfect ninth inning for his second save. Quevedo (0-1) allowed the two solo homers and four hits with six strikeouts over six innings to take the loss for Tri-City (4-7). On Tuesday the Vermont

Since the program began in 1998, the Lake Monsters have hit 176 home runs at Centennial Field with $17,600 donated. Pictured: Chris McKenzie. Photo courtesy the Lake Monsters

Lake Monsters shutout the Tri-City ValleyCats for the second straight night with a 4-0 victory. Starter Chad Jenkins (1-1) allowed just one hit with one walk and seven strikeouts over his five innings of work for the win. Jenkins, who was touched for five runs on six hits in just 3 1/3 innings at Tri-City June 24, allowed just a one-out walk in the first inning and a leadoff single in the fourth. Wilson Eusebio tossed three scoreless innings of relief, while Neil Holland gave up a leadoff single in the ninth before getting a double play and pop out to end the game. The Lake Monsters would get all four of their runs early with one in the first and three in the second inning. Hendry Jimenez walked to leadoff the bottom of the first, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored on a David Freitas RBI single. It was just the second first-inning run of the season for Vermont in 12 games (Lake Monster pitchers have not allowed a first-inning run all year). Cole Leonida led off the second with an infield single and advanced to second on a throwing error before scoring on a Marcus Jones RBI double down the leftfield

line. Jones would score later in the inning on a Jimenez RBI groundout and Justin Miller scored on a Jason Martinson RBI single to center for the 4-0 lead. Martinson, Freitas, Jones and Stephen King each had two hits for the Lake Monsters, while Wilton Infante and Ben Orloff accounted for the Valley Cats two hits. Bobby Doran (0-2) allowed four runs on six hits in four innings to take the loss for Tri-City (4-8). The victory was the third straight for the Lake Monsters. Vermont pitchers completed deal on Wednesday night by pitching their third straight shutout, while Russell Moldenhauer hit two home runs and Justin Miller hit a three-run homer to lead the Lake Monsters to an easy 8-0 win, and a three game sweep of the visiting Valley Cats. With the three shutouts Vermont pitchers had tossed 30 straight scoreless innings dating back to the seventh inning at Connecticut on the previous Sunday. Wednesday’s starter Matt Swynenberg (2-0) gave up just three hits with two strikeouts over six innings to lower his ERA to 0.56 for his three starts. Starters Swynenberg, Taylor Jordan and Chad Jenkins combined

Lee, Boyd at Centennial Field Former Major League Baseball pitchers Bill Lee and Oil Can Boyd will be at historic Centennial Field July 17 to sign autographs as the Vermont Lake Monsters host the Staten Island Yankees. Lee and Boyd both pitched for the Boston Red Sox and the extinct Montreal Expos during their MLB careers. Lee went 119-90 with 19 saves and a 3.62 ERA in 416 games during his 14-year career (1969-82). Boyd went 78-77 with a 4.04 ERA in 214 games during his 10-year career (1982-91). Also appearing at Centennial Field this summer is former Major League pitcher Luis

Tiant on July 24 and ESPN Baseball Insider Buster Olney on Aug. 6. Tiant went 229-172 with a 3.30 ERA over 573 games during his 19-year career (196482). Olney, who can be seen on ESPN's Baseball Tonight and also writes for ESPN, grew up in Randolph. All four will be at Centennial to sign autographs before and during that night's Lake Monsters game In addition, the first 500 fans at the Aug. 6 game will receive a Buster Olney bobblehead doll.

to allow just seven hits with three walks and 14 strikeouts in 16 innings in the three-game series. Reliever Colin Bates gave up one hit with one walk and four strikeouts in three innings to pick up his second save of the year. The Lake Monsters offense scored six times in the bottom of the second inning off Tri-City starter Murilo Gouvea. Moldenhauer got the inning started with a solo home run to right for his first professional hit in his fifth at bat with Vermont. Cole Leonida followed with a ground ball single and after a sacrifice bunt scored on a Ronnie LaBrie RBI single to rightfield. Marcus Jones was then hit by a pitch and Miller followed with a three-run homer to left for his first home run of the season and a 5-0 lead. One out later Jason Martinson walked, stole second and scored on a two-base wild pitch to close out the scoring in the inning. The score stayed 6-0 until the eighth when Stephen King singled with two outs and Moldenhauer followed by hitting an 0-2 pitch over the fence in right field for a two-run homer and his second home run of the game. He is the first Lake Monsters with a two-homer game at Centennial Field since Steve Souza hit a pair against Lowell on June 26, 2008.

Africa From page 1 Now, three decades after her first African trek, Kathleen Colson travels to droughtstricken northern Kenya twice a year. She spends a month during each trip visiting key villages and gaining the trust of residents as the founder and executive director of the BOMA Fund. BOMA is a non-profit organization that provides skill training and seed capital to Africa’s poorest women. Colson helps the women establish small businesses that provide them with incomes—a first step that helps improve their lives and the lives of their families. As an example, when visiting BOMA’s “customers” in the remote village of Kirkuum, Kenya, Colson can be found sitting under the community’s thorn tree—a kind of “town square” gathering place. There she discusses life and personal woes, as well as small business and personal savings ideas with BOMA’s women entrepreneurs. Kirkuum’s women have led lives barely clear of the Stone Age. Their lives as livestock tenders are at an end as drought in the region has destroyed old lifestyles. Small businesses may include the making and distribution of locally made products as well as other items.

It’s clear that villagers love Colson. Men and women call her Mamma Rungu, a nickname of endearment and respect; the term means “Mother with a Big Stick”. Colson likes to carry a long marungu, a native wooden hunting club that closely resembles an Iroquois war club. “I got my nickname because the villagers think I’m pretty tough,” she said. “Women aren’t supposed have these weapons.” In the semiarid lawless backcountry of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley—where armed and violent Somali bandits and rustlers roam with impunity— you may need more than a marungu. That’s why Colson is always accompanied by observant trail scouts and armed security guards. “Our guards carry AK-47 automatic rifles,” she said. “I am also trained to shoot one, if need be. And yes, we’ve been shot at by bandits with machine guns.” So why would a middleaged woman choose to put herself in harm’s way in a Third World country? “It’s about social justice,” she said. “I was invited to Kenya by a close friend, and a member of Parliament, Joseph Lekuton. I met Joseph through my safari business. When Joseph said to me, ‘Come I need your help’, how could I say no? Little did I know it would turn into my life’s

work. Now Colson works 7 days a week, 12-14 hours a day, on the BOMA Fund. “Kenya is seven hours ahead timewise this time of year, so I am up at 4:30 a.m. every day. Staying in touch via telephone and the Internet— plus making multiple visits there—is the only way I know to build a viable organization.” The BOMA Fund is best described as a grassroots microfinance organization—the fund helps start small businesses through its signature program called REAP or Rural Entrepruener Access Project . “So far, we have launched 260 businesses in northern Kenya,” she said. “Each has five people with an average of 25 children. That’s 1,300 women earning an income outside of livestock. So, we impact 1,300 adults plus 6,500 children.” It’s clear Colson is on a mission. She’s determined to bring self reliance to Kenya’s struggling ethic groups, the Rendille, Samburu, Turkana, Elmolo and Ariaal people. “Foreign aid doesn’t work,” Colson said. “Billions of dollars later, Africa is poorer than it was 30 years ago. Most aid organizations focus on intent not on outcomes. BOMA focuses on results. If you’re not demanding that a charity show transparency and ac-

countability, of course the money is going to disappear. And I don’t blame the Africans.” Here’s a lesson about enabling people to remain in poverty that could easily be applied here at home— “We have a tendency to give things away in Africa. People don’t do that in Brazil, in China or in India. The goodwill industry in Africa has destroyed markets. There are hillsides of used clothing in Africa. It has destroyed the textile industry in Africa.” In recognition of Colson’s tireless work, St. Lawrence University awarded its illustrious 1979 alumna with a special humanitarian award June 5. While an award always looks nice on the mantle, there is an even sweeter ward in the form of a humble testimonial about Colson and BOMA that came from a burgeoning Kenyan businesswoman named Sipirian Lalamaal: “We decided not to eat this (BOMA grant) money, because even if we were given a million shillings it would eventually be finished. This business gives us life,” she said.
