Douglas targets stimulus funds From Eagle Staff & News Reports
Gov. Jim Douglas announced that the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) will award more than $10 million in Federal Economic Stimulus funds—supplied by U.S. taxpayers—to improve roadways, sidewalks, bridges and other transportation infrastructure owned by 30 Vermont municipalities and non profits. The annoucement was made July 13. The money will be distributed in three ways: 10 communities will receive paving grants ranging from $300,000 to $750,000, eight communities or non profits will receive transportation enhancement grants ranging from $52,000 to $240,000, while the Vermont Agency of Transportation will expend up to $5 million in Stimulus funds to repair 12 structurally deficient town highway bridges. Paving grants (estmated) were issued to the following communities. Bold text indicates communities in New Market Press Newspapers’ circulation area— •Alburgh: West Shore Road/Isle Lamotte Bridge, $411,750. •Barton, TH 1 (Vermont 16), $578,250. •Berlin: Paine Turnpike North (Berlin Four Corners), $365,612. •City of Newport: Lake Road, $362,163. •Hardwick: Center Road, $450,000. •Lincoln: River Road encompassing West River Road, East River Road, Gap Road to the Green Mountain National Forest, $300,000 •Milton: Lake Road, $370,530. •Strafford: Route 132, $750,000. •Topsham: Powder Spring Road, $675,000. •West Rutland: Marble Street, Whipple Hollow Road, $709,413.

TROUBLED SPAN—Is it safe? Yes, but the vehicle weight posting on the ailing Lake Champlain Bridge was reduced to 40 tons last week—bridge officials said it is the legal maximum load on a bridge without a special permit. Only one-lane of traffic is open with traffic lights now operating on both sides of the structure. Motorists complained about bicyclists on the bridge and delaying the crossing time. Legally-loaded tractor trailers will be permitted to use the bridge, however, overweight vehicles will be prohibited. Photo by J. Kirk Edwards
On July 10—at the Vermont Folklife Center as part of Middlebury’s new townwide ArtWalk event— famed photographer Rebecca Lepkoff shared thoughts on her life behind the camera lens, including her work Rebecca Lepkoff in the 1950s capturing the essence of the alternative community in Pikes Falls, Vt., which included famed author and activists Scott and Helen Nearing. Lepkoff has been active as a photographer since the 1930s. Her photographic documentation of everyday life in New York City is associated with the Photo League, from which she drew inspiration. “Born in 1916, Rebecca Lepkoff grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and started photographing her native city when she bought her first camera in 1938,” according to Tom Gitterman, director of New York’s Gallery 292. “With a background of modern dance and art history, she photographed with a strong sense of light and abstraction and captured the rhythm of the street. Her exquisite prints are rich in tones and subtleties of lights and darks. Beyond mere documents of a time and place, her images provide greater insight into human existence within the city. Her work captures the energy of the hustle

Is the local strawberry crop a washout? Native, locally grown strawberries are in the marketplace—at least those berries that were harvested fast and early in the current season. But in some areas, Vermont’s strawberry crop may have succumbed to the rain and wet weather, according to Dianne Lamb, a nutritionand food specialist with the University of Vermont Extension. Strawberries are the first berries of the summer season to appear, she said. “Once picked, a strawberry will not ripen further,” Lamb said. Strawberries as we know them today started out from a
wild strawberry plant in Virginia and made its way to Europe in the 16th century, according to Lamb. Eventually this plant was crossbred with a South American strawberry plant. According to the University of California-Berkeley book “Wellness Foods A to Z”, this was the humble beginning of commercial varieties of strawberries grown in Vermont, and elsewhere, today. Horticulturists over the years have developed strawberry varieties that are suited to the climates of all 50 states, including Alaska and the desert Southwest. Regarding this summer ’s less than perfect crop-growing
weather in Vermont, Lamb cautions consumers to inspect berries before they buy. “When purchasing berries inspect the container for signs of stains which can mean that the berries inside are soft,” she said. Soft berries may be due to mishandling or the results of this summer ’s soggy, cool weather. “The caps on strawberries should be green, fresh looking and fully attached. Locally grown, fresh strawberries will have a wonderful fragrance,” Lamb said.

Ask Dr. Curtis Gross Chiropractor Q: Does chiropractic care help you to enjoy the sport you love as you get older? A: Yes, chiropractic care does help you in that way. There are a few ways to look at this. Keeping proper mobility in the spinal joints keeps you more flexible so you can play sports more comfortably. It also reduces the wear and tear to the spinal joints. Chiropractic care reduces your chance of injury by increasing mobility and general spinal flexibility. You can make quick moves more safely, as your body is better able to adapt and react without jamming the vertebrae and causing strains and sprains. These factors clearly make it possible for chiropractic care to extend the sports career of the weekend warrior as well as the professional athlete. Another bonus of chiropractic care is performance is better! Agility, strength and reaction time were tested in three groups (11 tests in all). Participants performed each test better under chiropractic care. Lance Armstrong and other high profile athletes have their own chiropractor traveling with them to help get that extra special competitive advantage. Each NFL football team has at least one chiropractor on staff. Athletes love the benefits chiropractic provides them. Utilize it yourself, get a competitive advantage and extend your career.

The illustrated woman
ast Thursday me and Marshall went to the Nocreet Dam an saved a bunch a tadpoles that was getting eaten by stocked carp the state stocked for the purpose of sucking silty stuff off from the floor of the reservoir. Me and Marshall burn trash, but at the core we’re quite environmentally robust. A person needs to be robust if he’s going to catch tadpoles using a silver-bowl bowling trophy, and a Frisbee. Comin’ home we stopped in for a treat ta the Frosty Wosty. There’s a Home Depot-sized pond behind the Frosty Wosty that I set the tadpoles free in. Must have been over a 1,000 tads me and Marshall saved— and just in time; they’re soon going to lose their tails and become frogs, and when they do, they’re going to spend summer evenings creating a cacophonous chorus of ribeting. Is there a better way to spend a lifetime of summer evenings than eating ice cream near a pond full of frog’s ribeting? I thinkest not. After the rescue was fully complete, and the tads were swimming gaily about, (tell me they don’t look gay swimming, with their tails all lolly gagging behind—and please, please don’t call my editor or publisher to complain; I’m not anti gay, I’m pro gay; I’m just sayin’, relax and get the point), me and Marshall walked back to the Frosty Wosty, went roun‘ roadside to the window that has a sign over it reading, ‘You scream for ice cream here’. We ordered our treats. Marshall got a kid’s size pistachio with Jimmies. I had a jumbo banana boat. I like to mix fruit with my chemically flavored ice cream. Me and Marshall set and et, and listened to the gathered throng of ice cream lovers gossip, about divorce proceedings, mostly. “Sad,” I said, “Marshall, ta’ think half of all marriages end in divorce.” Marshall’s nicotine-stained tongue darted from his mouth, feathering the mountain of coiled pistachio creemee with a lick that was so industrious it left a small group of pink, red, and white jimmies stuck to a wayward nose hair. After a much less ambitious follow-up lick, Marshall replied, “Even sadder ta’ think, the other half of them marriages might last forever.” ‘Bout time I was tippin’ my banana boat, letting the melted remains run to the back of my gullet, Marshall was poppin the bottom half-inch of sugar cone wholly into the far reaches of his. I asked: “Marshall. What is love?” “Well I’ll tell ya,” Marshall said, “I’ll tell ya what love is.” He paused. “After I get some water. Gadfrey them creemees is good, but they make me thirstier than a Camel with dry humps.” He drew half a Dixie cup of water from the Frosty Wosty’s outdoor faucet, placed the cup to his bottom lip, snapped his head back and drew the content of the Dixie cup in one short-loud-gulp. Then he crumpled the cup, pegged it into the bed of his black and white 1968 Chevy pick-up, burped the words, “all my ex’s live in Texas,” and commenced to telling me what love is.

Identity zoning T
his reading audience being, I’d guess, composed of sophisticated practitioners of contemporary political vernacular phraseology, there’s no need for me to waste any of my allotted column-inches on an explanation of “identity politics”. Nor, I’d guess, do I need to describe how identity politics leads inexorably to identity jurisprudence. More than a century ago, French author Anatole France (false name) wrote “Le Lys Rouge”, 1894, which contains this well-known quote: “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor from sleeping under bridges…” sarcastically illustrating through his Communist world-view, the Leftist support for the idea that members of different groups are entitled to different treatment under law and regulation. Lady Justice now peeks around her blindfold to determine who, appearing before her, should be treated more gently or more harshly, depending on their group identity, for the same crime—or, in modern Vermont planning and zoning situations, the same permit application. So the new logical sequence is: 1. identity politics, 2. identity jurisprudence, and 3. identity zoning. Just as, under the Anatole France view of things, the rich are to be judged more rigorously for stealing than the poor, so, under contemporary P&Z doctrine in many Vermont towns, corporate permit applicants are to be treated more rigorously than equally-for-profit mom-and-pop applicants, and both such identity groups are to be treated more rigorously than government or non-profit applicants; this explains why Middlebury has granted multiple variances for various non-profit housing applicants and why the Addison County’s shire town raised no environmental objection to the construction of its own exemplary countycourthouse-in-a-swamp—a bit of regulatory empathy which, I’d guess, wouldn’t have been accorded a for-profit private developer. Selective empathy is a big part of identity politics, jurisprudence, or zoning. Sometimes the empathy is negative, as exemplified by WalMart in St.Albans, a 20-year P&Z odyssey which the corporation has stuck with to the (almost) end; or Home Depot in Montpelier, where the corporation fairly quickly decided to exit from an unpredictable conditions-laden not-by-the-book permitting process. Most recently, corporate applicants in Ferrisburgh (fast-food/fuel-stop/convenience store) and Middlebury (first, high-end coffee and now office supplies) have been the targets of negative empathy expressed through identity zoning, In the latter instance, both withdrew once they realized what unpre-

ASA science writer and former colleague D. C. Agle likes to describe them as “the celestial equivalent of sonograms.” They are radar echoes that are bounced off asteroids passing close to the Earth. And astronomers love ‘em. Coordinated by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., these microwave images from the outer limits have stories to tell us about near-Earth objects or NEOs. It is believed that massive NEOs have hit the Earth’s surface in the past causing mass extinctions and global climate change. “The standard ground-based tools for asteroid science require a night's sky, and what you come away with in the end is a pohotgraphic image of a dot,” said JPL radar astronomer Steve Ostro. “But with radar astronomy, the sky at high noon is just as inviting as that at midnight, and without launching a full-blown space mission we can actually get valuable information about the physical makeup of these objects.” Enter the World War II-era technology of radar—short for ra(dio) d(etection) a(nd) r(anging). The obscure field of radar astronomy uses tools that are similar to your kitchen microwave oven. Those readers old enough may remember that the first microwave kitchen ovens manufactured by Raytheon for $5,000 in 1947 were called “radar ovens”. Modern microwave ovens are no different—you are cooking your food with radar waves. Radar antennas on Earth emit a radio beam of directed microwave signals toward a passing NEO. These microwaves don’t cook the asteroid, but when the radar pulses bounce off the asteroid they produce what’s called an echo. “You can make out surface features (on the echo images),” said Ostro. “A good echo can give us a spatial resolution finer than 10 meters." More than 190 near-Earth asteroids have been discovered using radar. The objects are somewhat like snowflakes since no two are exactly alike. NEOs can be both rocky and metallic; some even have their own orbiting mini moons. While there’s plenty of evidence of ancient terrestrial impacts by NEOs, what are the chances of being whacked by one today? In the winter of 2004, a big asteroid named Apophis got the full attention of JPL astronomers. Astronomers figured out a rough orbit for Apophis, a 1,300-foot-diameter cosmic mountain tumbling end- over-
SATURDAY July 18, 2009 dictable permit conditions they were facing. Which, of course, is what the p&z folks, reflecting majority anti-corporate-identitygroup community sentiment, wanted. It wouldn’t have been seemly to have denied the application for overtly-stated identitygroup reasons, just as it wasn’t seemly for the next Supreme Court justrix to have overtly declared Hispanic females juridically superior to white males—an arrogant policy statement which had to be “walked back from” (a little D.C. new-speak lingo, there) in order to keep the preference doctrine unspoken, invisible—but unchanged. I’d guess that it’s the desire of folk,s who enjoy occupying P&Z board seats, to exercise their superior discretion— in the Progressive model, the brighter have the obligation to govern the dumber for their own good, what Rudyard Kipling called “the white man’s burden”—by dealing with permit applications on a case-by-case basis, thus providing positive or negative regulatory empathy as members of various identity groups appear before them. The theory would explain why “conditional use” has acquired such increased popularity amongst planners and zoners in recent decades, and the regulatory process has become progressively (pun intended) less transparent and predictable over the same time span. It would likewise explain why P&Z folks who, decades ago, enthused theoretically over performance-standards zoning, have since become increasingly hostile to the concept. A regulatory model, which establishes quantitative measures for all the various aspects of development in various zones—such as traffic, lighting, lot size, building footprint, noise, smoke, utility requirements, service impacts, and so on—would transparently and predictably approve any proposal which met the printed quantitative and qualitative standards. Conversely, it would disapprove one which didn’t. The opportunity for the P&Z folks to exercise discretionary identity zoning would likely disappear because they wouldn’t have the courage to list—in writing—the favored or “disfavored” identity groups deserving of positive or negative empathy (which might appear before them with a permit request). More next week. Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee. end through space. The astronomers realized that, based on preliminary calculations, the NEO’s orbit took it mighty close to terra firma. Scribbling a few numbers, Steve Ostro made a sobering prediction— Apophis might slam into the Earth in the year 2029. Alarm bells went off in the minds of Ostro and his JPL team. It was time to get more accurate information about Apophis’s orbital mechanics. Ostro and three other radar astronomers used the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico to “ping” Apophis. The radar data significantly improved the asteroid's orbital estimate. “We were able to rule out a potential Earth collision in 2029,” Ostro said looking very relieved. Whew! Earth was lucky this time. Apophis was removed from NASA’s 10 Most Wanted list, but other planetoids like it lurk in the deeps of space.

National History Day finals were held at the University of Maryland near Washington, D.C. A delegation of Vermont students who placed first or second at the Vermont History Day state competition in April participated in the national competition. Twenty-six local students attended the Washington event—this year ’s theme was “The Individual in History: Actions and Legacies.” Andrew Rainville from Mount Abraham Union High School in Bristol and Hannah Sturtevant from Vergennes Union High School received the Best of the State prizes—Rainville for his exhibit on John Deere and Sturtevant for her J. Edgar Hoover exhibit. Elle Ross of Clarendon’s Mill River Union High School and Holly Cloutier from Black River High School in Ludlow also ranked in the top third (papers and exhibits). Vermont representatives met the students on the U.S. Capitol steps in Washington. Students presented the government officials with Vermont History Day buttons and took
the opportunity to have photographs taken with the famous dome providing the backdrop. Vermont History Day is an education program that encourages students to study history and it provides the opportunity to share the knowledge they have gained. Every year, the program is open to Vermont students in grades six through 12, including homeschool students. Working individually or in small groups, this year ’s student participants chose an historical event on a topic related to the National History Day theme. With research done in libraries, museums, and historical societies, as well as interviews and site visits to explore their topic, students prepared papers, exhibits, documentaries, web sites, or performances as entries. In the spring, the entries were judged by local historians, educators, and other professionals. Students said they gained a deeper understanding of how people, cultures, and events affect the course of history.

The couponer’s secret weapon: stockpiling 21157

(Hey, I do have three kids who make it their daily mission to undermine my housecleaning efforts!) People’s reactions to my pantry never cease to amuse me. They ask, “Are you worried about a food shortage?” “Who will eat all of this?” “Did you buy all of this at one time?” But once I explain By Jill Cataldo stockpiling most people begin to get it. Wouldn’t you buy a lot of cereal if it were only 6 cents a box? How many bottles of apple juice would you buy at 25 cents a bottle? Both of these products have a long shelf life. And my family of five goes through a lot of cereal and juice, among many other things. Stockpiling and couponing go handin-hand. When you stockpile groceries, you buy as many units as you can afford to buy, using as many of the coupons that you have collected for the items involved. As consumers, we’re just not

’ve got a secret. If you were to walk through my kitchen, nothing would seem out of the ordinary. My refrigerator is well stocked with food, as are my kitchen cabinets. It looks very much like I’d imagine your own kitchen looks. But take a look at my basement pantry, and prepare for a shock. The room looks like a smallscale supermarket. Stocked shelves line the walls. More than 30 boxes of brand-name cereal will greet you, along with 20 bottles of apple juice. Towers of paper towels and toilet paper rolls reach toward the ceiling. There are so many packages of baby diapers in here that, stacked, they’d completely conceal the pantry door. And the shelf of household cleaners – everything from furniture polish and dishwasher detergent to glass cleaner and carpet sprays – will leave you wondering why my house isn’t spotless.
conditioned to buy large quantities of the same item. And yet, it makes good financial sense to do so. If I bought what I thought our family would drink in a week during the apple juice sale, I’d leave the store with just three bottles. Once those bottles were gone, I’d be back at the store paying $2.89 apiece for the next three. Instead, I stockpile. The quantity I bought will last our family about seven weeks, and we’ve saved a lot of money, too. Stockpiling is a simple concept. Once you start, you’ll wonder why you didn’t shop this way before. Of course, you may also wonder where all your pantry space went. Next week I’ll share some of my stockpiling tips with you. © CTW Features

Vermont has stupendous harvest: Red juicy strawberries, crunchy peas, colorful lush salad greens, round or icicle shaped radishes with green tops, crinkled and curly leaves of spinach, fresh herbs, maple syrup and honey, fresh bread, meats, and flowers are just a sampling of the weekly offerings at local farmer ’s markets. Many markets, such as the Richmond Farmers’ Market, have musical entertainment as a backdrop to the social interaction of vendor and customer. Local farmers' markets are the place to meet neighbors, friends, and make new acquaintances. Check out the calendar of events inside of The Eagle and Rutland Tribune newspapers for business hours of the market nearest you. A recent count of markets at the Vermont Agency of Agriculture website www.vermontagriculture.com had 50 markets operating in Vermont. There is at least one market in every county; most Vermont counties have six or more markets per week. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Directory of Farmers' Markets lists more than 4,700 Farmers' Markets throughout the United States. The number of markets continues to grow, providing consumers greater access to locally grown, farm fresh produce, as well as, an opportunity for buyers to have a personal interaction
and connection to the farmers who grow the food. In Vermont the average distance produce travels is less than 50 miles. Shopping at a farmers’ market has the same rules that apply to safe food handling as the supermarket. Fresh produce is fragile and the quality can decline quickly if not properly stored during transit. Items like cheese, meats, and eggs are highly perishable and require refrigeration and should not be left sitting in the car for any length of time. After making your purchases go directly home. Does produce need to be refrigerated or not? That is the question! It depends! Some items are best stored in the refrigerator; some need to be stored at room temperature, and some may need to be kept at room temperature until fully ripened and then put in the refrigerator! Produce items that taste best when stored at room temperature include fruits and vegetables like bananas, melons, onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and winter squash. These items need to be stored in a clean, dry, well ventilated place out of direct sunlight. Produce items like avocados, kiwifruit, nectarines, peaches, pears, and plums will continue to ripen at room temperature. After ripening to desired degree on the counter store these fruits in the refrigerator. You can hasten ripening of these foods by placing them
in a brown paper bag. Sealed plastic bags do not work for ripening produce. In fact, storing fruits and vegetables in a sealed plastic bag and leaving them on the counter can actually slow ripening time, increase off-odors, and decay because of the accumulation of carbon dioxide and depletion of oxygen inside the sealed bag. It's a case of the plastic bag not breathing. Gases cannot pass through plastic as they can through the paper bag. Most produce items should be stored in food grade plastic bags loosely closed so air can circulate or in perforated food-grade plastic bags, which can easily be made by making 20 small holes in a medium sized bag. Wash your hands before working with fresh produce. Wash produce thoroughly when you are ready to use it. Fresh produce has a natural protective coating that helps keep it fresh and moist. Washing produce before storage causes produce to spoil more quickly. If you do wash produce before storing, make sure that the items are thoroughly dry. Berries are very fragile and should be washed just before eating. Produce should be rinsed even if the peel is to be removed. Bacteria on the outside peel or rind of citrus fruits or melons can be transferred to the inside when the produce is cut or peeled. Once fruits have been cut they need to be refrigerated.

Gov. Douglas GUESTVIEWPOINT welcomes Nutty scheme passes U.S. House of Representatives international T dignitaries Gov. Jim Douglas welcomed dignitaries July 11 from Quebec, France and New York to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s exploration of the region. The governor and members of the Vermont Lake Champlain Quadricentennial Commission hosted a breakfast and special welcome ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington for dignitaries visiting Vermont for the anniversary celebration. “I am honored that our guests from Quebec, France, and New York have joined us for this historic event,” Douglas said. “The 400th anniversary of Champlain’s exploration is a time for us to come together and celebrate our shared history and cultural roots.” Dignitaries at the ceremony included France Dionne, Quebec delegate to New England, François Gauthier, consul general of France for New England, and Neil LaBlanc, consul general of Canada for New England. Also in attendance were U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, Celine Paquette, vice chairwoman of the New York HudsonFulton-Champlain Commission, Burlington Mayor Bob Kiss, and Bruce Hyde, chairman of the Vermont Lake Champlain Quadricentennial Commission. Champlain, a French explorer from Brouage, France, was also the founder of Quebec City. Arriving at Lake Champlain from the north in early July 1609, Champlain and his guides entered the lake in a fleet of 24 canoes. Champlain’s founding of Quebec City and subsequent exploration of Lake Champlain was the starting point of a permanent French presence in North America. In the New World, the explorer coverted from Protestantism to Catholicism and welcomed Black Robes, Jesuit missionaries, to the region. The 400th anniversary commemorates an important historical moment in the region’s history–the first contact between European and Native American cultures in Vermont’s Champlain Valley–and the cultural contributions of the people living in Vermont today. Events are taking place throughout the summer and include a variety of heritage festivals, art exhibits, bike and paddling tours, culinary events, history tours, interactive activities, cultural demonstrations and community fairs.

he closer you look at the enormous Waxman-Markey energy tax bill that passed the U.S. House on June 26, the more you come to realize what it requires you to believe, the more you realize what drastic changes it promises to impose upon America, and the more you grasp what it will cost Americans in higher prices, a crippled economy, and lost jobs, the more you - a normal person - will conclude that this is crazy, costly, and dangerous. The whole disgraceful exercise is founded on the premise that human emissions of carbon dioxide are producing dangerous "global warming". There are plenty of statements to this effect by Al Gore, Bill McKibben, Environment Defense, Sierra Club, the UN's IPCC, and NASA's eccentric climatologist James Hansen, who is urging citizens to commit civil disobedience to halt fossil fuel combustion. The clamor of these enviro politicians is totally unsupported by real science. "Global warming" disappeared a decade ago, forcing the enviro propagandists to switch to the not-disprovable "climate change". Carbon dioxide produced by fossil fuel combustion is a fraction of one percent of the atmosphere. It's tiny in comparison to the most important greenhouse gas, water vapor (that
fortunately can't be taxed or regulated). The global warming scare is based on computer models of the atmosphere that - if the operator suitably jiggers the parameters - have been made to predict startling global temperature increases in the 21st century. However the computer models are unable to reproduce the known global temperature record since 1950, they failed to predict the current cooling trend, and they predicted a upper troposphere hot spot in the tropics that clearly does not exist. The alarmists brought out ice core studies to show that a rise in carbon dioxide concentration (caused by what?) hundreds of thousands of years ago led to higher temperatures. That fell apart when it turned out that the higher temperatures caused higher carbon dioxide concentrations (as CO2 outgassed from warmer oceans), not the other way around. Intellectually corrupt scientists and politicians are willing to sign on to the "sky is falling" argument, because that gives them cover to get their hands on enormous money flows. The Waxman-Markey bill aims to drive up the price of fossil fuel energy, to depress CO2 emissions. The mechanism is a cap on carbon dioxide emissions from (to start with) power plants, vehicles, and energy-intensive industries. Obama first proposed to auction
off permits allowing the emission of one ton of carbon dioxide. Every utility and industry would have to buy enough permit units to stay in business. The cost of buying the permits would of course be passed on in everyone's electricity, food, fuel and product bills. The proceeds of the government's auction of this artificially valued funny money would fund a host of "clean energy" and "green jobs" schemes. But as Congress labored to produce a bill, a furious big-money corporate lobbying campaign forced members to start demanding that the government initially give away the credits to their favored industries, such as coal-burning utilities. By the time the bill squeaked by to passage (219-212) with concession-bought votes, 85 percent of the initial credits were handed out free, in the name of "consumer protection". Of course if consumers were permanently protected against the bill's carbon price increases, the whole point of the bill - to suppress carbon dioxide emissions - would be defeated. The key here is that the backers were forced to make the bill relatively painless in its first few years to get it through the House. Then to pacify the restive enviros the cap will be gradually screwed down, the price of the emission credits will escalate, and consumers will be forced to pay untold billions of dollars in what
amounts to new energy taxes hidden in the cost of almost everything they consume. The bill also contains a provision, demanded by labor unions, to put an import tax on products manufactured in the Third World, whose governments have steadfastly stated that they have no intention to abide by any emissions limitation scheme, unless the developed nations transfer enough wealth to them to get them to change their mind. Even Obama balked at this, since any such import tax would trigger a trade war. If carried out as advertised, this prodigious bill promises to reduce global temperature by a fraction of one degree Fahrenheit by thew year 2100. For this, Congress is going to impose an enormous hidden tax on every American consumer, lavish benefits on countless rent-seeking special interests, launch dozens of new government spending and regulatory programs, employ thousands of new bureaucrats, promote billions of dollars in wealth transfers to Third Worlders peddling dubious carbon offsets, and drive a large part of our economy overseas? You're thinking, "they've got to be kidding". But they're not. John McCluaghry John McClaughry is president of Vermont’s Ethan Allen Institute (www.ethanallen.org).

Thank you, Farmers Diner! To the Editor: The good folks at the Farmers Diner, located within the Marbleworks in downtown Middlebury (99 Maple St., Suite 10), donated a portion of their July 1 sales to Festival on-the-Green. Annie Harlow, hospitality chair for Festival on-the-Green, was on hand for part of the day to share copies of this year ’s festival schedule and—while supplies lasted—audio CDs compiled in honor of our 25th Anniversary Season (2003).

To the Editor: ...Why is it that in the midst of a historic economic crisis, the Burlington Free Press chooses to expand its coverage with an added environmental section? Have you not noticed that these economic issues confronting us will, in all likelihood, be with us for as long as a generation? You would think expanded converge of the paper ’s business section would be more in order. Did you know Vermont economist Art Woolf offers a program instructing economic education in our schools? Have the editors thought of giving him a weekly column in the Free Press newspaper? Surly, they must realize John McClaughry and his Ethan Allen Institute predicted what is and what will occur in Vermont's economy in the coming years? Have they considered giving his organization expanded coverage, rather than, let's say, the Conservation Law Foundation?

Some 80 percent of Vermont is farmed, forested, or conserved and Vermont's agriculture makes up 1.5 percent of Vermont's Gross State Product: Forbes has listed Vermont as the "greenest" state. What does the future mean for our children? Get ready to swallow hard—certainly, not farming. As I noted in my July 4 Vermont Tea Party speech, John Adams said: “Now is the time, the facts are inescapable... we are not so much declaring as acknowledging reality.” Don't you think it's time to acknowledge reality in Vermont?

Larry, Darryl and Darryl To the Editor: We grow them stupid up here in Vermont. Maybe the old “Newhart” T.V. show, which took place in Vermont, wasn’t too far from portraying the truth. This news story, titled “Intruder breaks in, finds cop waiting”, was reported by the Associated Press on July 5— “A Vermont man faces charges after police say he broke into a house occupied by an offduty officer, who subdued him. Vermont State Police say 45-year-old Ricky Stearns of Ferrisburg kicked in the front door of a home at the Basin Harbor Club in Ferrisburg. The invasion came in the early morning hours before dawn Saturday and Stearns charged at the man he found inside. “It turned out the man was a New Jersey police officer. “Investigators say Officer Thomas Ringer of Metuchen, N.J., quickly incapacitated and subdued the intruder. “Stearns was charged with trespassing and unlawful mischief. Police say his bloodalcohol level was twice the legal limit.” And here’s more evidence of local stupidity, this a news report from the Vermont State Police— “Vermont State Police are investigating
more than 30 thefts from motor vehicles in the Panton, Ferrisburgh and Vergennes area. The thefts reportedly happened last week, between midnight and 6 a.m. In each case, the vehicles were unlocked and parked in the owners' driveways, police said. “Various items, including electronics, cash, change and weapons were stolen, police said. “Anyone with information is asked to contact Trooper Dempsey at the New Haven barracks.” Ever hear of locking your doors?

Hello? To the Editor: Did all of you see how state representatives Dave Sharpe and Mike Fisher explained in this newspaper who is going to pay for this Vermont Democrat budget? Of course you didn’t (see it). I asked that specific question of Mike and Dave in the Eagle a few weeks ago. And they are now silent. Why? Because they don't know who is going to pay for the coming budget. At least Mike left a message on my telephone wanting to talk to me, but he also stated that we wouldn’t be able to agree on anything. Dave, Mike: Please, no phone calls to me. I asked this question in the Eagle, so answer me in the Eagle. All of us taxpayers and voters want to know: Who is going to pay for the budget you voted for? This question is critical as we just found out that Vermont's income tax revenue has just dropped 33 percent for the first quarter of this year. Burt DeGraw Bristol

As always, please feel free to reach me any time. My contact information is listed below. Summer study committees (usually starting in September) are a way to deal with issues when there is not enough time to delve into them deeply enough during the session. They may offer a neutral party time to look at all sides, give information, and perhaps make recommendations for the next legislative session. Not all legislators are assigned to study committees.

STRONG FOOTINGS — Construction workers operated a large, noisy pile-driver machine last week to continue work on the piers of the new Cross Street Bridge across the Otter Creek. During the last week in June, workers were expected to complete the installation of the remaining reinforcing steel for the pier-2 footing. This view shows one of the piers located next to Mr. Ups Restaurant as viewed from the Cross Street bluff. The $16-million bridge bond is funded by a local option tax. A second downtown bridge was first proposed during the 1950s. Eagle photo

Suspicious fire destroys Wheeler Road house
A short season of summer concerts T
he Green Mountain Chamber Festival continued its exemplary series of concerts last week in the Redstone Recital Hall. Mendelssohn continue to be the focus of attention with a cello sonata in the first half of the program and concluding the second half of the program, the magnificent quartet Opus 44, no. 1, which had a brilliant performance that brought an entire audience to its feet. We were treated to a trio sonata by John Knowles Paine, who founded the first university-level music school in the United States. The second half of the program was opened by a brilliant example of love bravura violin writing and truly exciting bravura performance. The two-movement work Piano Trio, Opus 32, by Paine was given a highly nuanced performance by Arik Braude, violin; by Brooks Whitehouse, cello; and by David Feurzeig, piano. The performance allowed the music to breathe, paying attention to the natural rise and fall of their musical lines. When a line began in the violin and was then completed by the cello, if one were to avoid looking at this stage, one would have had some difficulty in telling when the switchover took place. The work is well worth hearing regardless of Paine's important connec-
tion to the growth of music in the United States. The performance was as fine as one could wish for— the Sonata in D. major, Opus 58 by Felix Mendelssohn and dedicated to his brother, who was a cellist, received a fine performance from Robert Jesselson, cello, and Paul Orgel, piano. It is the second cello sonata that Mendelssohn wrote. The playing was incisive and lyrical. It was a true giveand-take between cello and piano, both of whom had all the technical necessities down pat. It was a worthy performance of a strong piece of music. The music of Henry Wieniawski reminds one that the second half of the 19th century was a time of fierce competition among performers. This is especially true of those who chose to use the violin as their calling card. Paganini was an exemplar of this bravado attitude towards music; Wieniawski another. I have noticed over the past three years that the performance of bravado music for the violin is a specialty of Chin Kim. This year he outdid himself, there was not a single missed pitch or inaccurate tempo. He played with a flair that his calm exterior might lead one to believe would make him a poor candidate for bravura music. Play it he did, however, not only technically accu-
rately, but deriving the maximum amount of musical content that the writing had to offer. He was accompanied by Hiromi Fukuda, piano. It is a wonder to me how the faculty of Green Mountain Chamber Festival manages rehearsals, because I don't believe that all of them are on the faculty of any one college or university. I mention this because it seems to me that the performance of Mandelssohn's magnificent quartet, which demands so much technically, and which demands very discriminating listening on the part of the performers, would seem logically to demand a great deal of rehearsal time that, while, what with their teaching and their other faculty roles, their schedule must precludes a great deal of rehearsal time. That makes the performance of last Wednesday even more remarkable. The playing of John Gilbert, violin; Stephanie Ezerman, violin; Lembi Veskimets, viola; and Alexander Ezerman, cello, fell into the uncommon, the performance belied all the shortages of rehearsal time that may have existed. They're playing was so finely attuned that the music went along at the appointed tempi -- and I guarantee you that Presto con Brio was exactly like that -- Presto and Brio. It was a musical romp that never lost sight of the
BRANDON — On July 6, at approximately 6:48 a.m., a residential fire was reported at the home of Ellen Hodges at 2433 Wheeler Road. Neighbors reported the fire since no one was home at the time. Brandon Fire Chief Robert Kilpeck coordinated fire fighters from Brandon, Salisbury and Pittsford at the scene. The home was located in a remote area and it is believed the fire went unreported for some time. The home was completely consumed by fire and is a total loss. Vermont State Police investigators were contacted to conduct an origin and cause investigation. Fire investigators from the Vermont State Police and Vermont Division of Fire and Safety responded to the scene. The cause of the fire is suspicious.

The zen of Little League From News Reports
basic morals and guidelines of life. “For 130 years we’ve been cheering for players to battle each other and challenge themselves on the ball field. No other sport is quite as American or inspirational.” Parents want to give their children the tools for a successful and enjoyable life. Little League, Pony League, college, and professional baseball are great ways to build the foundational skills kids need to become adults. In praise of Liberthson’s book, Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig agreed: “The great American pastime isn’t just a sport —it’s a chance to learn skills that guide Americans through all the pitfalls the world can throw at us.” Liberthson’s poems point out four life lessons both adults and children can get from baseball if they know where to look:
More than two million kids from around the world will play on 7,000 baseball Little League teams this year. These children, ages 13 and younger, are taking part in a tradition that spans nearly 70 years. Parents across the world enroll their children in Little League not just to learn the sport, but to learn the ethics and team spirit associated with the great American pastime. “What is on the field is an imitation of human life,” said Dan Liberthson, PhD., and author of the new book “The Pitch is on the Way: Poems about Baseball and Life.” Liberthson said taking part in baseball games and watching the professionals on the field are fantastic ways to teach children the
YOUR BUSINESS IS OUR BUSINESS.
•Failure, Injury, and Defeat Are as Much a Part of the Game as Success. As Liberthson points out in his poem “The Mound,” about a pitcher yanked from the game, we can all blow it, but we need to pick ourselves up and try again. •Don’t Relegate Yourself to the Dugout. A player might miss one opportunity and lose his focus for the rest of the game. He becomes obsessed with that one early mistake and can’t recover. It is the same with life: if you dwell on your past mis-step, you’ll never get a foothold on future success. •Don’t Let the Hecklers Get You Down. In many games, some fan is shouting above the crowd for the batter to miss, or the pitcher to throw badly, or deriding the umpire’s calls. Taking such spiteful criticism to heart will only ruin the player ’s pleasure in the game and his chance of winning. “Everywhere in life you run into people rooting for you to fail,” said Liberthson. “Look at these professional ath-
letes on the field and think about how the rival team is hoping they’ll fall flat on their faces. Still, these men often manage to succeed. It’s a good lesson for life: ignore unhelpful criticism if you are giving the game your best. You won’t have a chance to win if you don’t stop beating yourself and letting the hecklers beat you.” •You Can’t Win By Yourself. Baseball is a team sport. Sure, some teams have highpaid ‘hot shots,’ but without nine players on each team and many support staff there is no game. The same is true of life: you can be the best at what you do, but if you’re not surrounded by good, supportive people whom you treat well, your chances of enjoying the experience are zero. “Life is hard, but at its core life is a game, a serious game. Maybe who wins or loses the game isn’t as important as how a player feels about the job he’s done as he walks off the field,” Liberthson said.

Addison Legion team sweeps South Burlington By Frederick Pockette The Addison County legion baseball team swept Knights of Columbus-South Burlington last Saturday in a double header, winning the opener 9-3, and following that up with an 18-1 slaughter in the night cap. In the opener Dean Butler led a 14 hit attack by rapping out three singles. Mickey O'Connor clubbed an RBI double for Addison Counties lone extra base hit. Corey Haight, who picked up the win struck out nine batters in four plus innings of work. Losing pitcher Josh Blow had two hits, including a double, and two RBIs for South Burlington. In the second game, Chad Estey and Butler led an offensive attack that plated 18 runs with three hits apiece. Estey belted a three-run homerun and two single while Butler singled, doubled and tripled, giving him a total of six hits for the afternoon. Sean Harrison picked up the win in game 2. Ethan Hanson cracked an RBI double and P.J. Handy took the loss for South Burlington. Addison County improved to 9-3 with the sweep, while South Burlington fell to 5-5 after dropping both games. Spinners Take Two of Three The Boston Red Sox short season A affiliate, the Lowell Spinners came into Burlington last weekend and took two of three from the hometown Vermont Lake Monsters.
In the series opener last Friday night Lowell pounded out seven extra-base hits, including back-to-back home antage of five Vermont errors to score six unearned runs in a 10-3 victory over the Lake Monsters. The Spinners back-to-back home runs came from Chris McGuiness and Michael Almanzar to lead off the fourth inning and give Lowell a 2-1 lead. They added three more runs in the sixth. Shannon Wilkerson belted an RBI double and Roberto Feliz added an RBI single, for a 5-1 advantage. Lowell then scored five runs, all unearned, on just one hit in the eighth inning for a 10-1 lead. The Spinners used two hit batters and three Vermont errors to score the five runs in the inning, which was capped off by a Joantoni Garcia three-run triple to right center. Vermont had taken an early 1-0 lead on when Francisco Soriano walked, stole second and scored on a J.J. Sferra RBI single. But that was all the offense the Lake Monsters could muster off Lowell starter Yeiper Castillo (2-1), who allowed just the one run on four hits with two walks and five strikeouts over six innings for the victory. The Lake Monsters got their final two runs of the night in the eighth inning on a J.P. Ramirez RBI groundout and a run-scoring wild pitch. Vermont was held to just six hits on the night and have
just 13 hits in its last 27 innings of play at Centennial Field. Four Spinners had two-hit nights, including Almanzar who also scored three runs, while Wilkerson was 2-for-5 with two runs and two doubles for Lowell. Jack McGeary (1-1) allowed two runs (the back-toback Spinner home runs) on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts over five innings to take the loss for Vermont. Sferra and Sean Nicol both had two hits for the Lake Monsters. Then following a rainout on Saturday the squads split a doubleheader on Sunday. In the opener Lowell starter Jose Alvarez (2-1) allowed just three hits in six scoreless innings to lead the Spinners to a 4-0 shut out win. Lake Monsters starter Kyle Morrison (0-2) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits over five innings to take the game one loss. The Spinners scored the first run of the opener in the second inning on a two-base error by right fielder J.R. Higley, who the previous inning had made a great catch as he caught a foul ball just before flipping over the fence into the batting cage area behind the Lake Monsters clubhouse. Lowell added three more runs in the sixth inning on a Michael Almanzar RBI single and a Ronald Bermudez tworun double to seal the 4-0 victory.
Vermont avoided being swept by scoring three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to pull out a 3-1 win in the series finale. The Lake Monsters were held scoreless for the first 12 innings of the doubleheader and found themselves trailing 1-0 after the Spinners scored an unearned run in the top of the sixth inning of the nightcap before rallying. Sean Nicol reached to lead off the bottom of the sixth on a fielding error by second baseman Drew Dominguez, then scored the tying run as J.P. Ramirez rocketed an RBI double to left center. Ramirez moved to third on a Dan Killian fly out and scored the
eventual winning run on a wild pitch from losing pitcher Pedro Perez. Vermont added an insurance run on a J.J. Sferra RBI single to score Dani Arias, who had singled and then stole both second and third. Reliever Clayton Dill hit Tom DiBenedetto and walked Dominguez to start the seventh inning, but then struck out the final three batters of the inning to secure the Lake Monsters win and picked up his second save of the season. Both starting pitchers in game two tossed five scoreless innings as Lowell’s Cesar Cabral gave up three hits with three strikeouts and Vermont’s Mitchell Clegg gave
up two hits with four strikeouts. Steven Stewart (1-0), who gave up the unearned run in the top of the sixth, picked up the win for the Lake Monsters, while Arias and Sferra both had two hits apiece. The doubleheader split leaves both Vermont and Lowell with identical 12-11 records and two games behind Oneonta for first-place in the Stedler Division. After an off day on Monday, the Lake Monsters opened a six-game road trip at Jamestown last week. Vermont returns home for a three-game series with the Brooklyn Cyclones beginning July 20.

From page 4 “I went to Moose Mountain Video store, there was a girl standin’ by the door wearing a tank top with, ‘I heart GED’, on front. We chatted. She didn’t have a job. I asked her how long she’d been standin there, she told me two or three years. Today, I asked. Two hours maybe she said. “I asked her how come, she said she was trying to rent herself out. So, I rented her, ‘n we took straight off to my favorite swimming hole. “I was behind of her when she haunched herself from the water which allowed me to spy her cutoff blue jean shorts riding down to just above the split in her behind. Atop the waistband of her shorts was one a them tattoos like the girls have these days. You’ve seen ‘em, butterflies, hearts, boyfriend’s initials, ankhs. Nonsensical useless patches of ink. But not hers, no, not hers. “Her tattoo was of a flat-screen T.V. When I saw it, I fell in love. I told her I said, ‘Oh, I like your flat-screen T.V. tattoo.’ She said, ‘It’s high definition,’ I said, ‘Oh, really, high definition?’ That it was high definition surprised me ‘cause we’d be hanging out for an hour and a half and I wasn’t to that point—near sure she even knew the definition. “We got out a the swimming hole, shook off in good shape, and went straight home. “Now I don’t know what she’s got in her for a receiver, but I watched the Discovery Channel on her skin till four o’clock the next morning. She never moved a muscle.” Marshall cleaned cone dust from the corners of his mouth. “That’s what love is.” “I don’t get it. I don’t get it Marshall,” I said, “Your story. There’s no point?” “Not to you maybe. That’s not my fault,” he said. “Whatever happened to her, you seen her since?” “Well we ain’t done nothing together since, but yeah, I seen her. She made your banana boat tonight. And while she was making it, I watched her back and caught up on the news.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.
