Group claims 13,000 Vt. seniors going hungry


Leaders promote ‘food stamps’ Community and state leaders gathered last week in Montpelier to discuss strategies to bring more food dollars to Vermont’s low-income seniors. Marissa Parisi, executive director of the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, claimed that “Hunger is on the rise among senior citizens in Vermont, yet only 40 percent of those eligible receive 3SquaresVT benefits, commonly called “food stamps.” While many seniors lose out on the help, Vermont also loses out on critical federal dollars to stimulate the economy,

The noblest invention Little City Cycles, Vergennes

Vergennes’ annual French Heritage Day celebrated Addison County’s French-Canadian heritage last weekend. The 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain attracted more curious visitors this year than in the past. Here, visitors enjoy a ride in a classic vis à vis carriage, also called a sociable. The circa 1840s horse-drawn vehicle toured the Little City’s downtown French quarter. Here, it makes a turn off Main Street heading onto North Maple Street. Photo by J. Kirk Edwards

Eagle-Times daily of New Hampshire closes Not affiliated with New Market Press

Owner Tim Mathewson coaches Kara Pflaster, 12, Charlotte, with servicing her own bicycle at Little City Cycles in Vergennes. Award-winning cyclist Lance Armstrong—of Tour de France and Giro d'Italia race fame—once described the bicycle as “the noblest invention”. Armstrong considers the cycle “noble” primarily for its simplicity and its practicality as a means of low-cost, universal transportation. From Leonardo da Vinci to Albert Einstein, the bike has certainly inspired big ideas. Biographers claim Einstein worked out complex cosmic problems in his head while cycling around Santa Barbara, Calif. For Tim Mathewson, age 49, of Ferrisburgh, da Vinci’s 15th-century tinkerings inspired a lifelong passion for all things cyclical (pun intended).


The owners of the Eagle-Times, a daily newspaper in Claremont, N.H., which serves both sides of the Connecticut River, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last week. Owner Harvey Hill closed the paper ’s doors July 9. The Eagle-Times is not affiliated with The Eagle which is distributed in Addison and Chittenden counties by New Market Press Inc. The Vermont publishing company also publishes the Rutland Tribune. “Of course we’re very sorry to see any newspaper close its doors. The Eagle-Times appeared to be a popular paper in both New Hampshire and Vermont,”said Mark Brady, general manager of The Eagle and Tribune. “We’ve had a few telephone calls from customers and readers who heard ‘the Eagle’ and thought it was our paper. I can assure you—we are open for business in Vermont. Other than a similar sounding name, we are a free community weekly and not related to the Eagle-Times daily,” Brady said.

Democrats endorse Leahy The Vermont Democratic Party’s State Committee members voted overwhelmingly to endorse U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy as the party’s candidate in the 2010 election. “Senator Leahy is our senior senator and has done many strong and wonderful things in the Congress for the country and for Vermont. ...,” said VDP Chairwoman Judy Bevans. The endorsement was approved by a comfortable margin over the two-thirds-plusone required by the party’s bylaws. The vote was 34 yea, 1 nay and 1 abstention. If all delegates had been in attendance, the minimum vote would have been 32. “We are recognizing the decades of leadership Senator Leahy has provided and the unique position of power and responsibility he has achieved. He is in a position to help America keep its promises and we will work hard to re-elect him in 2010,” Bevans.

In commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the construction of the historic Crown Point Road, hikers from the Crown Point Road Association will be taking part in an end-to-end hike across Vermont this summer. Starting at Crown Point, N.Y., on Aug. 9 during the French and Indian War encampment at the fort, the trek will pass through the towns of Addison, Bridport, Orwell, Shoreham, Whiting, Sudbury, Brandon, Pittsford, Proctor, Rutland Town and City, Clarendon, Shrewsbury, Plymouth, Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Cavendish, Weathersfield and Springfield, ending at Fort No. 4 in Charlestown, N.H. All these towns grew up on the old road which served as a conduit not only for the movement of troops and supplies during the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars, but also for the wagons and possessions of early settlers. People currently living in these towns are encouraged to greet the hikers or walk along with them in their area providing an opportunity to share local history and traditions. Hikers will maintain a day-by-day schedule as much as possible, walking six to 10 miles per day and camping at pre-arranged sites. No private property will be crossed without prior permission. The itinerary is posted on the CPRA Web site [] and location of the hikers will be up-dated every day.

Trying to understand


understand a business—large, medium, or small—has lots of expenses. I understand the particulars of these expenses: workmen’s comp, health insurance, payroll, and unemployment benefits; these items can make it impossible for many businesses to coax profits enough to ever succeed. I understand dedication to any size business, especially regarding time and energy from the person or persons who are at the helm, must be immense—if that business has even the scantest chance of prospering. I understand a businessowner may have spent tens of thousands of dollars to learn rules that suggest margins one should set in order for the business to survive. I understand relationships with vendors can be tenuous, which could affect the cost of their product to be steeper than it should be. I understand that business operating space rental contracts aren’t always fail-safe and they aren’t always entered into with a forthright conscious by the lessee. I understand that the costs of heating, electric, telephone, marketing, etc., perpetually slide upward. I understand taxes. I understand taxes can break your spirit. I understand business. For six years I studied business under the late William J. Doyle, a successful New Yorker who owned William Doyle Galleries on 87th Street between Lexington and Third avenues in Manhattan—the business hub of the world. I was Bill Doyle’s assistant, his right hand man, his confidant; I was driver, student and bodyguard. I learned from Bill, a man who—by his own blood sweat and tears, natural instincts, and love of people—established an internationally recognized auction house. To this day, Doyel’s business competes successfully for goods and estates against giant firms including Sotheby’s and Christies. We should understand how Bill conducted business in a manner to ensure his personal success, while at the same time, making employees and clients happy. I understand there are local restaurants that deal with every nook and cranny of business just like every other business deals with—but there’s this local restaurant I know that serves a “twofer” fish meal for $12, and a “twofer” filet meal for $20. I understand this restaurant’s two-dinner deal is priced to be unusually—well, relatively—fair. I understand that this business feeds clients and sends its clients home happy and well fed. I wish this business the best. I understand business. I understand business is difficult. This summer—on your travels to events here and there and large and small—when you are thirsty and decide to purchase a bottle of water, you’ll find you’ll most often be charged $2.50 or more. That, I don’t understand. Charging $2.50 or more for a single bottle of water will not make clients happy. I don’t believe we’ve learned much from this so-called economic slowdown. Many businesses still charge too much and many customers still pay too much. Rusty DeWees can be reached at

The Obama-Kennedy Health Care reform


ealth care “reform” is at the head of the national agenda right now. President Obama and his Democratic allies make this case for so-called

change: “Americans are spending far too much for health care. That is because of waste and inefficiency among our health care providers. At the same time there are 45 million Americans without health insurance. Your government needs to wring the waste and inefficiency out of the system, curb unnecessary procedures and expenditures, promote behavioral changes to prevent illness, and use the savings to insure and where necessary subsidize the presently uninsured to. achieve universal coverage.” The straightforward way to achieve this lofty goal is to install, as Great Britain and Canada have, a single payer system. Obama says this is what he would do if starting from scratch. Single payer means all payments to medical providers for covered health care services are made by one single payer: the government, or one or more administrators contracted by the government. Everyone is included in the system. The funds required by that entity to make payments for services come from taxes. The government determines which medical services will be covered for which patients, how intensively they will be provided, and how much the providers will be reimbursed for providing those services. The government prohibits any private health insurance coverage for medical conditions covered by the single payer plan. Single payer systems rely upon the government’s global budget to “control costs”. The global budget attempts to match expenditures and revenues by directing providers to ration health care through postponement and denial of services, and by reducing government reimbursement to the “private” providers. Since 1965 the U.S. has had a mandatory single payer system for hospitalization and physician’s services for over-65 seniors. It’s called Medicare, and it’s an inspiration for Obama and his allies. Participation is mandatory, because if you don’t agree to accept Medicare, you can’t collect your social security retirement checks. Medicare is now insolvent. Its hospitalization insurance fund will not be able to pay for services after 2017 unless new financing is found. Its projected unfunded liabilities (payments above revenues) between now and 2082 total $36 trillion. Medicare underpays physicians and hospitals. (So do Vermont’s Catamount Health, which pays at Medicare rates, and Medicaid, which pays even less.) Obama and his allies are planning to finance much of their “reform” by further cutting payments to providers. But when Medicare payments are cut, providers contrive

From the Earth to the Moon


his week we’re toasting the 40th anniversary of the first human lunar landing by Apollo 11 astronauts in July 1969. It was an amazing feat of national will and technical prowess. Now, fast forward to July 2009: If all goes well, NASA plans return astronauts to the Moon by 2020. The modern idea of humans visiting and living on the Moon had its origin in 19th and 20th century science fiction literature. While researchers, notably Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, began to contemplate the technology required to escape Earth’s gravity for a journey to the Moon as early as 1890, it was not until 1938—when the British Interplanetary Society completed the world’s first scientific study of a lunar space vehicle—that the idea began to interest a wider community of space thinkers and experimenters. In the decade following World War II, several detailed lunar base studies were published. These concepts captured the public imagination. Arthur C. Clarke’s book The Exploration of Space, published in 1951, followed in 1953 by Willy Ley’s, Fred Whipple’s and Wernher von Braun’s book The Conquest of the Moon, presented realistic plans and colorful illustrations showing how humans could travel to the Moon and construct outposts there. “It seems likely that, well before the end of this century,” Clarke wrote in 1947, “an attempt will be made to form some permanent colony on the Moon.” By the late 1950s and early 1960s—with the launching of Sputnik, and successful tests of large rockets and humans in near-Earth space—the possibility of men and women traveling to, and living on, the Moon attracted United States and Soviet Union space planners. In 1959, the U.S. Army Ballistic Missile Agency selected H.H. Koelle with von Braun to complete the first serious, technically detailed plan to construct a lunar base. Classified “top secret” and dubbed Project Horizon, the plan would have used heavy-lift Saturn II rockets to place a crew of 12 on the Moon in pressurized underground modules. Abandoned within a year of its introduction, the Army’s Project Horizon was credited with providing some of the technological framework for the U.S. civilian Project Apollo. During the 1960s and 70s, both the Americans and Soviets moved ahead cautiously with lunarbase concepts. In the U.S., several studies employed surplus Apollo hardware for returning to the Moon. In the Soviet Union, the Zvezda (Star) concept envisaged six crewmen living in small modules. Ironically, after the first manned lunar landing in 1969, the national leadership for returning to the Moon was missing. The public is often blamed for this fact, but this writer blames it mostly on U.S. politicians. Public interest in space exploration has

to do more billable services to keep up their revenue. So as underpayments increase, the government will have to force providers to ration care to hold down total payments, and penalize providers who earn too much. Underpayments by government health care programs are essentially a hidden tax on health care covered by private insurance. Because government underpays, providers overcharge private insurers to close the shortfall. This cost shift results in ever-higher insurance premiums, and struggling employers start thinking about simply dropping their employee coverage. This is not a workable model. The Obama-Kennedy plan is not single payer, because it allows private insurance to continue (under federal regulation). But it contains a “public option” program designed like Medicare. This is supposed to provide competition with private insurers. Since the ultimate goal of Obama, Kennedy and their allies is single payer, it is perfectly clear government benefits and favoritism enjoyed by the government-sponsored “public option” plan will allow that plan to underprice its private competitors. Eventually employers will have no choice but to dump their employees into the government plan - even if they are charged a penalty for doing so. This is single payer on the installment plan. Obama recently remarked “no one will take away” your current health plan, “no matter what”. But a week later he amended that to say the government won’t take away your current plan - but you might lose your current plan because your employer, who owns your plan, might be forced to choose the cheaper “public option” plan. Obama and his allies also aim to solve the uninsured problem by mandating every American enroll in a “qualified” insurance plan. Under the Obama-Kennedy bill, if you don’t submit proof of enrollment, you’ll be tracked down and fined until you do. The Obama-Kennedy plan would if enacted prove to have some annoying inconveniences, like rationing, waiting lines, maddening bureaucracies, penalties for non-enrollment, demoralized doctors and nurses, shabby facilities, obsolete technology, declining quality of care, and of course much higher taxation. But don’t worry. President Obama and Sen. Kennedy can surely work those things out. John McClaughry is president of the Ethan Allen Institute in Vermont. remnained strong since the 1970s. In 1989, U.S. President George H.W. Bush showed his space leadership with the Space Exploration Initiative that called for a small lunar base by 2008. But with petty partisan politics in full swing, President Bill Clinton canceled his predecessor ’s initiative in 1992. (At least Clinton continued Reagan’s space-station plans since so much engineering work was already underway.) But a good idea rarely gets repressed for long: Bush’s lunar-return vision was revitalized in 2004 by the ex-president’s son, President George W. Bush. Hopefully, President Barak Obama, a Democrat, will continue America’s lunar leadership role, a role that inspires all Americans regardless of party affiliation. It looks like we’re finally getting back to the Moon—but we’re still keeping our fingers crossed. What’s in the Sky: This weekend, you can see what the Apollo 11 astronauts saw on their way back to Earth from the Moon in July 1969: the Summer Triangle. Look for the giant stars Vega, Deneb and Altair. As the sky darkens after dusk, three constellations become apparent. Thanks to J. Kirk Edwards for this week’s sky chart.

Playhouse reveals ‘How the Other Half Loves’ By Bill Wargo Bill Carmichael is no Robert Morley—and that’s good. Carmichael plays the part of Frank Foster in the Saint Michael’s Playhouse production of Alan Ayckbourn’s “How the Other Half Loves”. It’s London in the swingin’ ‘60s, and Frank’s sophisticated wife Fiona (Sarah Carleton) is having an affair with crude Bob Phillips (John Patrick Hayden), one of Frank’s young employees. Frank is clueless. When rotund English actor Robert Morley played Frank in the London premiere of “Other Half” about 40 years ago, it was playwright Alan Ayckbourn who was clueless—clueless about how to handle Morley. Although Ayckbourn had written the play as an ensemble piece exploring the impact of class, income, and education on sexual behavior, Morley made it into his personal star vehicle. He changed much of the dialogue and wreaked havoc

onstage. Morley’s antics made “Other Half” a smash hit, but when Ayckbourn watched the different, distorted play, he would “sit rather quietly and weep in corners.” Unlike Morley, Bill Carmichael is a team player, and the Playhouse’s “Other Half” is a team play. This particular thespian team could win the World Cup of comedy. The bedroom farce focuses on the effect that Fiona’s fling with Bob has on them, on their spouses, and on another naïve couple drawn into the marital maelstrom. John Going deftly directs the six superb character actors, and the situation comedy is greatly aided by Ayckbourn’s adroit use of space and time. A single set (cleverly designed by Ken Goldstein) represents the Fosters’ and the Phillips’ separate but over-lapping living rooms. Action takes place in both homes simultaneously, and two dinner parties given on different nights are presented on stage at the same time.

Most runners register for a road race with a special goal in mind to win (or be in the top 10), to set a personal best, or maybe just to finish and get a t-shirt. And while the 40 members of Team CFES may have their own individual reasons for running the Marine Corps Marathon or 10K Race in Arlington, Va., this fall, they’ll step to the starting line on Oct. 25 sharing one greater aim: to give underserved youth a running start toward college. That’s because each member of Team CFES commits to raise $1,500 to support CFES activities, such as mentoring programs, student leadership initiatives, and college visits, that boost academic aspiration and performance for low-income students. Their efforts will go a long way to help the organization raise $100,000 for its programs nationwide. Nine of these runners also share another commonality – their connection to Middlebury College. Andrew Helming, Class of 2004 and member of the CFES Board, is spearheading Team CFES training and fundraising efforts and running the marathon. He’ll be hitting the pavement with former classmates and Panther hockey

teammates Erick Dalton, Levi Doria, Michael Kennedy, and John Dawson, now the college’s assistant men’s hockey coach. Head coach Bill Beaney and former Panther (and Helming teammate) Marc Scheuer ’04 will run the 10K along with Helming’s wife, Amanda Green Helming ’05, and Courtney Campbell ‘04. College For Every Student, a nonprofit based in Cornwall, Vermont, just two miles from the Middlebury College campus, works with educators and students in 130 schools nationwide, from the rural reaches of upstate New York to the Florida Panhandle to islands of Hawaii. Its own track record is pretty impressive: Over the last four years, 96 percent of CFES high school seniors have gone on to college—a rate that is six times greater than the national average for low-income students. Registration for the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K is closed, but Team CFES still has bib numbers available. Each runner is asked to raise $1,500, and those who exceed this target qualify for free airline tickets and hotel stays, as well as other great incentives.


GUESTVIEWPOINT Stimulating statism


was in Vermont the other day and made the mistake of picking up the local paper.

Impressively, it contained a quarter-page ad, a rare sight these days. The rest of the page was made up by in-house promotions for the advertising department's special offer on yard-sale announcements, etc. But the one real advertisement was from something called SEVCA. SEVCA is a "nonprofit agency," just like the New York Times, General Motors and the State of California. SEVCA stands for South-Eastern Vermont Community Action. Why, they're "community organizers," just like the president! The designated "anti-poverty agency" is taking out quarterpage ads in every local paper because they're "seeking applicants for several positions funded in full or part by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA)" – that's the "stimulus" to you and me. Isn't it great to see those bazillions of stimulus dollars already out there stimulating the economy? Creating lots of new jobs at SEVCA, in order to fulfill the president's promise to "create or keep" 2.5 million jobs. At SEVCA, he's not just keeping all the existing ones, but creating new ones, too. Of the eight new positions advertised, the first is: "ARRA Projects Coordinator." Gotcha. So the first new job created by the stimulus is a job "coordinating" other programs funded by the stimulus. What's next? "Grantwriter." That's how they spell it. Like in "Star Wars" – Luke Grantwriter waving his hope saber as instructed by his mentor Obi-Bam Baracki ("May the Funds be with you!"). The Grantwriter will be responsible for writing grant applications "to augment ARRA funds." So the second new job created by stimulus funding funds someone to petition for additional funding for projects funded by the stimulus. The third job is a "Marketing Specialist" to increase "public awareness of ARRA-funded services." Rural Vermont's economy is set for a serious big-time boom: The critical stimulus-promotion industry, stimulus-coordination industry and stimulus-supplementary-funding industry are growing at an unprecedented rate. The way things are going we'll soon need a Stimulus-Coordination Industry Task Force and Impact Study Group. By the way,

Births A girl born July 8, Addison Mae James, to Corey and Brandy (Skiff) James of Crown Point, N.Y. A girl born July 11, Hannah Rae Savage, to R. Keith and Carrie Savage of Mineville, N.Y. A boy born July 11, Elias Bennet Eberhardy, to Sumra these jobs aren't for everyone. "Knowledge of ARRA" is required. So if, say, you're the average United States senator who voted for ARRA without bothering to read it you're not qualified for a job as an ARRA Grantwriter. I don't want to give the impression that every job funded by the stimulus is a job coordinating the public awareness of programs for grant applications to coordinate the funding of public awareness coordination programs funded by the stimulus. SEVCA is also advertising for a "Job Readiness Program Coordinator." This is a job coordinating the program that gets people ready to get a job. For example, it occurred to me, after reading the ad, that I might like to be a "Job Readiness Program Coordinator." But am I ready for it? Increasing numbers of us are hopelessly unready for jobs. Ever since last November, many Americans have been ready for free health care, free day care, free college, free mortgages – and, once you get a taste for that, it's hardly surprising you're not ready for gainful employment. I only hope there are enough qualified Job Readiness Program Coordinators out there, and that they don't have to initiate a Job Readiness Program Coordinator Readiness Program. As the old novelty song once wondered, "Who Takes Care of the Caretaker's Daughter While tThe Caretaker's Busy Taking Care?" Who coordinates programs for the Job Readiness Program Coordinator while the Job Readiness Program Coordinator's busy readying for his job? If you hum it, I'll put in for the stimulus funding. Oh, and let's not forget the new job of "VITA Program Coordinator." VITA? That's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. It's an IRS program designed "to help low- and moderate-income taxpayers complete their tax returns at no cost." The words "no cost," by the way, are used in the new Webster's-defined sense of "massive public expenditure." Whoops, I mean massive public "investment." You might think, were you a space alien recently landed from Planet Zongo, that, if tax returns are so complicated that "low- and moderateincome taxpayers" have difficulty filling them in, the obvious solution would be to make the tax code less complex. But that's just the unfamiliar atmosphere on Planet Earth making you lighthearted and prone to cockamamie out-of-this-world fancies. Put in for a Job Readiness Program, and you'll soon get with the program. Of course, it's not just low- and moderate-income taxpayers who have difficulty completing their tax returns. So do high-income taxpayers like Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. TragiHarperDeas and James Eberhardy of South Starksboro.

SATURDAY July 25, 2009 cally, they're ineligible for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. Indeed, the treasury secretary seemed under the misapprehension that it was a Volunteer Income Tax program, which would be a much better idea. But, being ineligible for VITA, Secretary Geithner was forced to splash out $49.95 for TurboTax and, simply by accidentally checking the "No" box instead of "Yes" at selected moments, was able to save himself thousands of dollars in confiscatory taxation! Oops, my mistake, I meant that, tragically, by being unable to complete his tax return due to a lack of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, Timothy Geithner was the only one of 300 million Americans to pass the Treasury Secretary Job Readiness Program. SEVCA serves two rural counties with a combined total of a little over 40,000 households. If you wanted to stimulate the economy, you'd take every dime allocated to (Vermont’s) Windsor and Windham counties under ARRA and divide it between those households. But, if you want to stimulate bureaucracy, dependency and the metastasization of approved quasi-governmental interest-group monopolies as the defining features of American life, then ARRA is the way to go. Oh, you scoff: ARRA, go on, you're only joking. I wish I were. We're spending trillions we don't have to create government programs to coordinate the application for funds to create more programs to spend even more trillions we don't have. The stimulus will do nothing for the economy, but it will dramatically advance the cause of statism (as commentator Mark Levin rightly calls it). The recent vote in California is a snapshot of where this leads: The gangster regime in Sacramento is an alliance between a corrupt and/or craven political class wholly owned by a public sector union-bureaucracy extortion racket. So what if the formerly Golden State goes belly-up? They'll pass the buck to Washington, and those of us in nonprofligate jurisdictions will get stuck with the tab. The good news is they'll be able to apply for an American Dream Readiness Assistance Coordination Grantwriter Program. May the Funds be with you! Mark Steyn Printed with permission.

From the Governor

Greenhouse gas standards The Obama Administration’s decision to grant California a waiver for its standards restricting greenhouse gas emission from motor vehicles is a significant step in the right direction for Vermont and other states that adopted these standards. My commitment to reducing carbon emissions in Vermont is longstanding as Vermont has been fighting to join California in adopting these standards for some time now. As the first state to adopt California’s motor vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards and to successfully defend these standards against legal challenges by the automobile industry in federal court, Vermont is a leader among the more than a dozen states that have adopted these tougher standards. Auto emissions are one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas concentrations. This is particularly true in Vermont where the transportation sector accounts for approximately 45 percent of our carbon footprint. That is why reducing an emission from automobiles is so important here in Vermont. The Clean Air Act clearly provides states with the right to adopt these emission standards. EPA’s decision to grant a waiver now allows states to enforce these standards. This decision by Administrator Jackson embraces states’ rights and I applaud the EPA action. Gov. Jim Douglas

Editor ’s Note: After last week’s criminal mischief at the annual Middlebury Festival on the Green, we received these comments for two of the festival’s organizers— Festival on the Green mischief To the Editor: As you probably know, I have been involved in the festival for all of its 31 years and we have never experienced anything like this. It was so sad to arrive on the green last Wednesday morning to see the damage which had occurred overnight. We are puzzled and saddened, but we remain optimistic that this was a one-time incident; like all good performances, the show does go on. The outpouring of ‘condolences’ from the community has been heartwarming and several folks have come forward with donations to help toward covering our unanticipated extra costs—estimated around $5,000. Pat Boera Festival on the Green Middlebury To the Editor: I share Pat Boera's optimism that this act of felony unlawful mischief was a onetime incident... I also share her appreciation for festival supporters who have offered us cheer and financial help. My understanding is that several other sites were vandalized that night, including the slashing of the canopy belonging to the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Assoc. Gale Hurd Middlebury Michael Jackson To the Editor: 1. Has the world gone crazy? A U.S. soldier is killed in action. It doesn't matter where or why it happened. That soldier is

a hero. Our service people give the ultimate to protect our freedom and way of life. Yet, that soldier's passing barely gets a mention in the headline news. Maybe they get a paragraph in the local paper. On the other hand, a child molester, pedophile rock star (Michael Jackson) dies and the headlines are splashed with every minuscule detail of his life for more than a week. The media claims he was a hero. You are kidding right? Which do you want as an idol for your kids?... 2. Here's an idea on how the politicians in Montpelier can fix the budget: How about all us people who work just send our paychecks to Montpelier and whatever our legislators can't squander away, they can send back to us and we can try to live on the scraps... Sound crazy? We are not far from that already... Burt DeGraw Bristol



Welcome to Vermont To the Editor: All members of society need to be productive. When the state has a shortfall, has gaps that need to be filled, there is no excuse for anyone to be sitting on their duffs, watching T.V., working out in a weight room or doing make work. Put them in a “poufter” pink one-piece outfit with no pockets or cuffs and let them clean up the highways and byways. Inmates will work up a hearty appetite for that bologna sandwich and lemonade lunch. Very fine al fresco dining, isn’t it? They’ll be learning something too, a real lesson to take away with them to wit: You don’t want to screw up in Vermont. Cutting roadside grass by hand is healthy, green, and inexpensive. Inmates learn to be good stewards of the land, what it means not to litter, and why one should be polite in society. However, if inmates learn nothing else, they’ll learn to pull their schtick in some other state, like North Carolina or Arizona, Georgia or Louisiana. There, they’ll get the full monté.

You don’t have to devote a special area of your house to stockpiling. And you don’t need to stockpile on a large scale. If toothpaste is on sale, buy several tubes and store them under the sink. If trash bags and paper towels are on sale, store them in the garage on a shelf. I enjoy having a corner of my basement devoted to my pantry, but you can stockpile wherever you have the space. By Jill Cataldo And remember, too, that while your stockpile grows, it’s also constantly in rotation. Old things come off the shelves as quickly as you add new items, just as they do at the regular grocery store. At one time I had 40 boxes of granola bars in my basement pantry, which elicited lots of jokes and comments from friends. But what they don’t realize is that my children are quite aware of Mom’s home pantry and they run downstairs and help themselves whenever they’d like a snack. So, as the granola bars start to disappear into hungry little mouths, Mom may be bringing home cans of soup to take their place. And my stockpile continues to rotate and evolve.


ast week, I introduced you to the concept of stockpiling groceries and spilled the beans on what’s hiding in my basement: a small-scale “grocery store” at home. Like many people, I’m always on the lookout for great deals. But unlike the typical shopper, I think nothing of buying 5, 10 or perhaps even 15 of an item when it is on sale. To really save money at the grocery store, shoppers need to break the habit of buying what they need each week and instead look beyond the current week’s needs. If shampoo is on sale for $2 and you have six $1.50 coupons, how many bottles should you buy? Six! While you might only need one bottle now, shampoo is an excellent item to stockpile. It has a long shelf life and is easy to store. Six bottles of shampoo will probably last your household the better portion of a year. At 50 cents each, a very low price, they’re a great deal. What if you decided to buy just two bottles? Not only would you miss out on the opportunity to save in the long run on this item, but you also would essentially be throwing money away in the form of the four coupons you chose not to use. Think ahead: after you use up your second bottle of shampoo, what will happen? You’ll head to the store when you need more shampoo. The chance is slim that it will be at its lowest sale price on the day you need to buy it. Your next bottle of shampoo may cost you $3.50 when it could have cost just 50 cents. And, instead of simply going to your stockpile and “shopping at home” for the next bottle, you might also have to make a special trip to the store. While we’ll always need to go to the store for fresh produce, dairy and bread, a large portion of the groceries we buy are easily stockpiled for later. Boxed foods, snack foods, canned foods and bottled beverages all store easily and have expiration dates almost a year out from the time of purchase. Personal care products – such as shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant and shaving cream – have an even longer shelf life. And don’t forget household cleaners and paper products, both of which can be stored indefinitely.

But if you’d rather not get chain grease and oil under your fingernails, Mathewson will do the servicing himself. Little City Cycles’ used bikes are fully refurbished and ready to roll.

Avid local cyclists know Mathewson from his sterling past work at the Alpine Shop in Middlebury and Champlain Cycles in Shelburne. Recently, Mathewson’s natural inventiveness and social consciousness was put to use in the design of an all-terrain wheelchair, a tricycle of sorts, for the Mobility Foundation. He was proud of being part of an effort to design a practical, lowcost means of transportation for individuals who might not otherwise be mobile. “It’s all about mobility without barriers,” Mathewson said. This same personal philosophy carries over to local efforts, too. Mathewson was part of the “brain

From page 1 While a youngster growing up in Fairfield County, Conn., Mathewson began salvaging old bikes with one he found submerged in a hometown pond. He refurbished it, and others, and sold them all to friends and neighbors. Later, at age 14, he became an accomplished racer for the U.S. Cycling Federation. Mathewson demonstrated early on that he was as much an extension of his bicycle as the mythical centaur was of his equine underpinnings. Bicycle inventor, designer and fix-it-man, Mathewson is the proud owner of a new Vergennes-based bicycle shop—Little City Cycles, located at 10 North Main St., across the street from Kennedy Brothers. Mathewson’s shop features new bikes, but the focus is really on affordable, gently used bikes of all types. He also services bikes, but he encourages motivated, curious customers to learn how to work on their own bikes. Mathewson likes

trust” at Bike Recycle Vermont located in Burlington; the organization provides bikes for refugees and homeless people of the surrounding area. Mathewson is also involved in developing an easy-to-use transportation system of recycled bikes for Third World nations; there, the typical imported econobox automobile is beyond the incomes of most citizens and contributes to pollution. This bicycle passion—and compassion—even helped spur a bike giveaway program in Jamaica. “The Third World idea is to use the recycled portions of bicycles and provide, over a period of time, more than 100,000 people with cheap transportation,” he said. “Simple transportation like this makes sense in the Third World. So, far over 250 of these refurbished bikes have been made. So, by rescuing a discarded bike here in America, we can change a life elsewhere in the world.” In between helping customers, Mathewson has been putting the touches on a high-end bicycle he

Danforth Pewter of Middlebury provided the elegant head badge for the new American-made Zize bicycle. Tim Mathewson of Little City Cycles in Vergennes helped design the bike.

helped design—the Zize Bike, manufactured in the U.S. by Super Sized Cycles. In addition to being an all-American bike, the Zize has a Vermont touch, too. Danforth Pewter of Middlebury manufactures the elegant pewter head badge on the bikes. Keeping things local, Mathewson is a vocal champion of bicycle transportation in Vermont for everyday use, not simply for recreation. Despite the state’s cold, snowy winters, he still advocates for more use of the bicycle here. “Dressed properly, there are many times when you can ride a bike a few miles to work on a winter ’s day,” he said. “I’d like to see 20 percent of Vermont’s population riding bikes and reducing the use of fossil fuels. And we don’t need fancy, trendy fashion bikes to get around either. Basic wheels will get you there just the same.” Check It Out: Little Cycles, 10 N. Main St., Vergennes.

Firefighters battle house blaze in New Haven On July 11 at 8:05 a.m., the New Haven Fire Department responded to 861 East St. in New Haven for a residential fire. The owner of the residence, Hal Schmiter, was working in a woodshop attached to his home. When Schmiter went back into the main residence he found the home on fire. Schmiter attempted to extinguish the fire with a bucket of water but was forced out by the heat and flames. He suffered burns on his face. Schmiter then ran to a nearby neighbor's home and called 911. New Haven Fire Department arrived on scene and requested assistance from Vergennes, Bristol and Middlebury. The fire departments were able to extinguish the fire and save the structure from being completely destroyed. The Vermont State Police were contacted to assist with an origin and cause investigation. Fire investigators from the Vermont Division of Fire and the Vermont State Police responded to the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation therefore the cause is undetermined but not believed to be suspicious. Schmiter was transported to the hospital for the burns on his face. Shcmiter was released a few hours later. Estimated damage was $150,000.

HANCOCK—Back in 2004, what is believed to be the oldest existing public ski lodge in the United States was dedicated to Richard “Dick” Hubbard. Hubbard was one of the founding fathers of skiing in the Middlebury area. He was involved at every level at the college as a skier and the college’s first ski coach; he was the Middlebury Ski Club’s earliest members and leaders, and in the founding of the Snow Bowl. The cabin was built in 1938 by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps and local ski enthusiasts, including Dick Hubbard, and was used as the base lodge until 1962, when the base lodge was completed. Then the cabin became a caretaker's residence for approximately three decades and had been unoccupied since the mid 1990s. With the college's permission, it became the home of the non-profit Middlebury Ski Club which is dedicated to promoting alpine skiing and supporting the development of ski racers of all ages and abilities. Beginning in 2002 and 2003, club members performed renovations to the interior to remove the living accommodations and return the cabin to its original oneroom design, and then began to use it in connection with club activities. In spite of its historic status, the exterior of the cabin had not been stained or

painted in many years. This both concerned and represented an opportunity for Rick and Peter Hubbard, Dick Hubbard’s two sons. At the time, they approached the club with a proposal. If the club would rally its members to “spruce up” the exterior of the cabin, Rick and Peter would provide the stain, paint and brushes plus volunteer their labor to work with club members. So, the work was undertaken a few years ago. In addition to Rick and Peter Hubbard, practically the entire club participated at that time. Chris Dayton and his children, Charlie and Grace, Emily Amory and her children Holden and Steddy and Michael Findlay, Dan Hutner, Peter Miller and son Eli, Brad and Kathleen Ramsey and their

children John and Turner, Molly Morrison and her daughter Darryl, and Robert Sokolowski and his friend Jenn Scarborough all pitched in back in 2007. All in all the group volunteered well over 100 hours applying 16 gallons of Mallard brown stain to the exterior logs and deck, two gallons of white paint to trim the eves, windows, doors, butt ends of logs and front of the deck and part of a gallon of "Middlebury College blue" to the front and rear doors. The group also filled two truckloads with old wood and other debris from both around and inside the cabin. Peter Mackey and the Bowl staff took care of disposal. The club is fortunate to ski and train at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl, home to one of the nation's top alpine ski teams. The bowl’s dedication to racing makes it a perfect home for the club. Members are often able to train in the gates before other clubs are even on snow.

Vermont Voltage celebrates its 10th season The Vermont Voltage is celebrating its 10th season in Vermont. The Voltage made the move to Burlington High School for the 2009 season after spending its first nine seasons at the Colins Perley Complex in St. Albans and they have enjoyed a good season thus far in Burlington. After dropping their first two games of the season, the Voltage have gone unbeaten over the past seven matches, achieving an overall record of 6-2-1. The Voltage is coming off of a 2-0 home victory over the FC Boston Immigrants this past Saturday. The club has played to a home record of 4-1 and looks to continue its success at Burlington High School this Saturday. Swynenberg on Vermont Roster Minor League baseball pitcher Matt Swynenberg has been promoted to Vermont from the Gulf Coast League Nationals and will start for the Lake Monsters tonight at Aberdeen, the team announced Monday. Swynenberg was selected in the 28th round of the 2009 draft out of Black Hawk College, where he went 7-3 with a 3.02 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 53 innings during the 2009 season. The right-hander was 0-1 with a 1.80 ERA in three games (one start) for the Gulf Coast League Nationals. In 10 innings, he allowed two runs on nine hits with five walks and 10 strikeouts. Two of Three The Vermont Lake Monsters traveled to Aberdeen, Md., last weekend where they won two games of the three game set against the hometown Iron Birds. With the series win the Lake Monsters improved to 15-14 on the year, and were tied for second in the Stedlar Division with the Lowell Spinners, just two games behind the first place Oneonta Tigers. Evan Bronson tossed four scoreless innings of relief for the victory and Dani Arias’ tie-breaking sacrifice fly in the ninth inning gave the Vermont Lake Monsters a 6-5 victory over the Aberdeen Ironbirds in the series opener last Friday night at Ripken Stadium.

Dragon Boat Festival to benefit Vermont’s Camp Ta-Kum-Ta BURLINGTON — The annual Dragon Boat Races and Festival will return to Burlington’s Waterfront Park Aug. 2. Spectators are invited to witness the competition, color and pageantry as more than 2,000 racers paddle for glory. Eighty-six Vermont community teams and 11 breast cancer survivor teams from across the U.S. and Canada as they compete in 300-meter sprint races to benefit Vermont’s Camp Ta-Kum-Ta, a summer camp for kids with cancer, and Dragonheart Vermont. Four Addison County dragon boat teams will be among the 86 teams racing for fun and fundraising at the festival. This year ’s area participants include: •DR Power Equipment “DR Power Paddlers” Team Captain: Craig Wolosinski, •Community Team “Draggins of Monkton” Team Captain: Suzanne Bushey,

•Goodrich Corporation “Winged Ladies of the Lake and Arthur” Team Captain: Donna McIntyre, •Goodrich Corporation “Sync or Swim” Team Captain: Mary Rudd, Races, food and festivities begin at 8 a.m. and last all day long. Each race features 6 lanes of colorful dragon boats carrying 21 paddlers each and will start every 12 minutes until the champion team is crowned in the final sprint for glory at 4:30 p.m. It’s an all-day celebration with lots of free fun for the whole family. Entertainment includes Burlington’s Taiko Drummers, Sambatucada, Maiden Vermont and the Jeh Kulu Drummers. Bid high on a huge selection of silent auction items. Raffles, unique merchandise, children’s crafts

and fabulous food combine to create an exciting, fun filled day for all. At noon a traditional flower ceremony performed by the breast cancer survivor teams will honor the spirit of those who have died from breast cancer. At 1:15, a parade of dragons begins. Camp Ta-Kum-Ta lost its home of 25 years in 2008 and must raise money to build brand new summer camp facilities at their new location in South Hero. Proceeds from the festival will support a new cabin for arts, crafts, music and a community space. Last year ’s festival raised $90,000 for the Cancer Patient Support Program’s Emergency Fund.
