Man found dead in lake Body recovered off Oven Bay Road By Lou Varricchio Vermont State Police troopers at the VSP-New Haven station mobilized rapidly after they received an emergency call regarding a missing swimmer in Lake Champlain off the Addison shore July 26. According to an “untimely death” report released by Sgt. Robert Pattern of the VSPNew Haven station, emergency personnel were notified at approximately 11:15 a.m. The missing swimmer was identified as 54-year-old Ray L. Petreccia of Brooklyn, Conn. , according to the VSP. Petreccia was last seen swimming in the lake off Oven Bay Road. His wife was alarmed when she noticed that her husband had disappeared from view. Mrs. Petreccia was on the lake and near her husband aboard a rowboat. She noticed that he had failed to surface after a period of time. After a daylong search, VSP scuba divers recovered Petreccia's body. Petreccia was found approximately 200 yards off shore at 4:38 p.m. Divers pronounced Petreccia dead at the scene. The lake in the area of the body’s recovery is murky and approximately 16 feet in depth. No strong current or undertow has been reported in that part of the lake. In the VSP-New Haven news release, it was noted that Vermont State Police and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will jointly conduct an in-depth investigation into the swimmer's death. An autopsy has been requested by Addison County State's Attorney John Quinn, according to the report. “At this time, Petreccia's death seems to be either an accidental death due to drowning or a death resulting from natural causes,” the VSP news report.

Shelburne officer justified in using deadly force Attorney General William H. Sorrell announced that his office has completed its review of a police-shooting incident that occurred on Feb. 13 in Shelburne. Sorrell concluded, as a matter of law, that Shelburne Police Officer Robert Barrows was legally justified in the use of deadly force when he discharged his firearm at a vehicle being driven by

Kelley O’Brien. The legal standard for the use of deadly force is whether the officer reasonably believed that he or a third party was in imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury, and that deadly force was necessary to respond to that threat. According to the investigation conducted by the Vermont State Police, the incident began on

Snow Bowl seeking funds for new alpine chair lift $600,000 of $1.7 million pledged so far By Lou Varricchio

An e-mail memorandum dated July 24 surprised faculty, staff and students of Middlebury College: President Ronald Liebowitz said he had mulled over several options about the future of the college’s Snow Bowl ski center in Middlebury Gap—including the option of closing the famed alpine-ski site. Liebowitz’s soul-searching regarding the fate of the ski center was prompted by the state of its chair lift system. But it appears that Liebowitz has strongly encouraged the board of trustees to keep the Snow Bowl open for business. In the announcement last week, Liebowitz noted that the Snow Bowl’s 40-year-old “Worth Mountain” doublechair lift no longer meets state safety licensing requirements. Replacing the current lift is estimated to cost $1.7 million. “After considering the options—repair the existing lift, replace it, or close the Snow Bowl—I recommended to the

board of trustees that the best course is to replace the Worth Mountain lift.” In recommending that the award-winning ski center remain open by replacing the aging lift, Leibowitz said donors have already pledged $600,000 toward the cost of the new lift project. “In seeking additional contributions, we will approach alumni, parents and friends who have particularly strong connections to the college through skiing and the Snow Bowl. We also plan to sell a limited number of lifetime passes to the Bowl, which will further reduce our use of the RRR (renewal and replacement reserve) fund,” he wrote in the campus-wide memo. According to Leibowitz, the replacement lift will be a fixedgrip, triple-chair system built by Doppelmayr CTEC. The lift capacity will remain the same as the Worth Mountain lift. The E.U.-based firm has North American offices and production facilities in St. Jerome, Quebec, and Salt Lake City, Utah.

‘Dairy pricing system is broken’ Allbee: 2009 crisis is worst yet By Lou Varricchio

Vermont dairy farmers are facing their greatest crisis yet. The price of milk has dropped to $13.81 per 100 weight from $20 cwt just a year ago.

As the price of milk fell to its 2009 low last week, a triple-witching hour of sorts has taken place: The prices of fuel, feed and bedding sawdust used by farmers has hit the barn roof. Now dairy farmers find themselves staring into an abyss of uncertain depth. Since 2004, 250 dairy farms have closed in Vermont. Since January of this year, 32 farms

Feb. 13 at about 6:30 p.m. when Barrows was responding to a 911 call report of erratic operation. He encountered the suspect vehicle parked at a Jiffy Mart. Barrows approached the vehicle and briefly spoke with the driver (later identified as Kelley O’Brien).

Rain or shine, locals celebrate Champlain

Employees of Gordon’s Window Décor in Essex Junction proved you don’t have to be professional dancers to have joined in the fun of the recent Quadricentennial Parade in Burlington. Even torrential rain couldn’t dampen the spirit of the group of coworkers which included a pregnant employee in her eighth months. The Quadricentennial parade was one of several events celebrating the 400th anniversary of French explorer and cartographer Samuel de Champlain’s travels by sail, oar, and paddle to the lake that now bears his name. The Lake Champlain Quadricentennial Commission was excited about the prospect of having an all dance parade, which was scheduled to commence rain or shine; the Gordon’s Window Décor crew was happy to take on the challenge.

Individuals and local businesses got involved in the recent Quadricentennial Parade in Burlington. Pictured are employees of Gordon’s Window Décor in Essex Junction who danced along the parade route. With the help of renowned choreographer Karen Amirault, the Gordon’s group mastered a special dance routine reflecting their enthusiasm for their community. After weeks of evening practices—the staff felt ready to rock and roll down Main Street for the Quadricentennial Parade celebration. The parade itself included dance routines from around the world including the Abenaki Nation, the Bosnian Lilies Folk Dance Group, Peru Mestizo, Inc., various dance studios from around the area, appearances from Senator Bernie Sanders and Gov. Jim Douglas. Sandwiched in between over 70 performing groups was the staff of Gordon’s right behind The Karen Amirault Dance Company and KIDZ and in front of the Tibetan Association of Vermont. Betty Sargent, an employee of Gordon’s Window Décor, said “I was excited about participating even in the rain. Our passion as a whole was great despite the poor weather.” Gordon Clements, president of Gordon’s said it was a great team building experience. “We had a lot of fun out there.”

Photo fakery makes the e-mail rounds By Lou Varricchio

F is for Fake: This North Pole photo is purported to have been taken during the week of May 11, 2009. It’s a fake being circulated via e-mail. said its North Pole image is doctored. “Completely fake! There’s just not that kind of open water at the pole. The image is not showing the geographic North Pole. Maybe it’s supposed to be North Pole, Aka.? It’s not clear in the e-mail. Still, it’s probably a composite of some real photos, but as a whole, it’s a fake.” Campbell said that she plans to provide some Internet education sessions for her well-heeled polar vacationers, who pay up to $24,000 for a visit to the North Pole. “When it comes to Internet claims and pictures, people need to practice discernment,” she said. “How to discern what’s true and what’s false in cyberspace is a critical skill today.” Campbell said that arctic ice hummocks typically rise only 5 feet above the surrounding ice. There’s simply no terra firma at the North Pole—only ice—unlike what appears in the e-mail image. American adventurers John Huston and Tyler Fish completed an historic trek to the North Pole earlier this year, but they returned to the U.S. in late April, so the May 11 photo cannot be linked to them. Furthermore, news archives reveal no North Polar expedition anytime during the month of May; it appears that no human ever set foot at the geographic North Pole between April and late June of this year. This writer also contacted

From page 1 Barrows noted an odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle and other signs that the driver might be intoxicated. O’Brien then put the vehicle in reverse, turned, and accelerated backwards, striking Barrows’ leg, and backed up narrowly missing a barrier protecting some gas pumps where vehicles were refueling. Barrows continued to approach O’Brien’s car, and repeatedly ordered the driver to stop. O’Brien then put his car in a forward gear and drove right at Barrows. Barrows fired several shots at the driver of the vehicle, as the car approached him, hit him again as he tried to move out of the way, and the vehicle fled. Barrows then got in his cruiser and pursued the fleeing suspect vehicle. O’Brien hit another vehicle as he fled, and eventually stopped in a nearby parking lot, where he was apprehended by Barrows and two other Shelburne P.D. officers who

arrived to assist. O’Brien was injured by one of the shots that Barrows fired. He was taken to the Fletcher Allen hospital where he underwent surgery, which was successful. A blood sample was also taken to determine alcohol content, with a result above the legal limit. Barrows also received injuries to an arm and a leg as a result of this incident. O’Brien was subsequently charged by police with a number of motor vehicle and criminal offenses based on his conduct. He is being prosecuted by the Chittenden County State’s Attorneys Office. Under the facts of this case, the Attorney General's Office has concluded that Barrows had a reasonable belief that he was in imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury at the time he fired at Kelley O’Brien who, after hitting him once going backwards, was driving a motor vehicle directly at him, despite commands to stop. Given the serious threat he faced, Barrows’ response of using deadly force was reasonable and justified.

Lonnie Dupre, a respected Minnesota-based arctic researcher and explorer; he agrees—the image is a fake. Dupre has retraced the icy footsteps of famous polar explorers from Knud Rasmussen to Frederick Cook to the top of the world. He is also an accomplished photographer with extensive knowledge of astronomical events as observed from far above the Arctic Circle. “I've spent most of my life in the Arctic as well as trips to the North Pole. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Dupre said. “I believe it is fake and any astronomer worth his or her weight could tell you the same.”

A reader of this newspaper called regarding a photograph of the Moon she received via an unsolicited e-mail dated July 23. “The e-mail has a photo of the Moon over the North Pole and claiming it was ‘at its closest point’ and has never been so large in the sky,” the caller said. “It’s beautiful.” But she wanted to know more: “Is it real?” The caller next forwarded the e-mail to this writer. It included text and the photograph in question; the image is supposed to show a largerthan-normal crescent Moon above the setting Sun. The mysterious image purports to have been taken at the North Pole during the week of May 11, 2009. Ice-free ocean water and low hills also appear in the image. The image has all the earmarks of fakery. The e-mail image shows a waxing crescent Moon for May 11, 2009. A quick glance at an astronomical almanac for May 2009 shows that the waning gibbous phase was visible during the week of May 11—not the crescent phase. Also, the Moon in this image is enormous—it’s simply too large to be believable as seen in the sky from Earth. But there are other clues: open water and hills in the picture. There is no land within hundreds of miles of the North Pole. We had New Market Press news photographer J. Kirk Edwards of Ferrisburgh study the image. “It looks like it’s ‘photoshopped’ to me,” he said. “Perhaps two or more images blended together?” This writer contacted Quark Expeditions, an adventuretravel firm based in Norwalk, Conn. Quark organizes annual expeditions to the North Pole aboard a Russian nuclearpowered icebreaker. The trips are conducted during late June and July when it is safest to travel to the far north. Prisca Campbell, marketing manager at Quark, last visited the pole in the summer of 2008; she looked at the e-mail and

The fault is in not in our stars, dear Brutus, but in our baggage... “Cat, you’ve been out dancing every night this week. Look at you. You have bags under your eyes.” I strolled into the kitchen, took two brown paper lunch bags out of the cabinet, and Scotchtaped them under my eyes. “So, Mom, I have bags under my eyes?” She took one look at me, tried to hold back a burst of laughter, then sarcastically said, “You’re too much.” Upon reflecting on this scene, I realized that the evolution of the bag for me began with our ordinary lunch bag. These days many refer to me as “the Bag Lady of Poultney High School” as I cart as many as five workbags into school. Each bag is organized for a certain purpose. The way I look at it bags help organize life’s responsibilities. According to the Encyclopedia of Symbolism by Kevin J. Todeschi, bag and baggage is defined as: “That which one possess and may utilize”. Metaphorically, the word bag can be used as follows: having something in the bag equals planning on a successful outcome; packing one’s bags equals getting ready for departure. Having excess baggage equals having personal problems. A trash bag could signify that which needs to be thrown away or that which one has discarded. Bag lady might symbolize simplicity.” No matter where you go and what you do, we all have baggage, which, for many, can be downright hard-knocked baggage as life progresses. What about student, relationship, family, emotional, and other assorted life baggage? Why do some of us have more baggage than others? In many respects life’s circumstances unfortunately dictate what type of baggage we must carry. The baggage that seems to be most troublesome to me, along with other teachers, is the student baggage. Some of our students come from such broken homes, and they need the return of the “love, nurturing, caring” baggage from us who truly care for them. It seems that other priorities for some in the field of edu-

Time to talk turkey A

few weeks ago, I shared some personal thoughts and opinions about acting, performing and auditioning. I wrote the column because folks often share with me a hidden desire to get up on stage and test their ability; I thought sharing bits of my prior experiences from the business-of-show, might in some way help them. Not sure how the column was received by the “lay” actor public, but I did hear from the artistic director of a well-known area theater group. He told me he agreed with the thoughts and methods I shared in the piece. His comments left me no choice than to think the acting-tip column was worth the time. Hence the following “test speech” for you tentative, but future thespians, to work on—at your leisure. The speech below can be performed fast, slow, shouted, screamed, played in full-on turkey apparatus, a pilgrim suit, a wheelchair, a wading pool, or on top of an R.V. It can be sung, signed, or spoken in Japanese. The list of ways you can present this turkey piece is endless; each of those ways can work. But if I were you, before I’d rent the turkey outfit from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade folks, I’d start by simply reading the piece over, and over, and over, until any natural ability you have surfaces, allowing you to illuminate the words without using gimmicks or tricks. I wrote the bit below to be performed on a radio show. If, as you read it, you think it’s boring and lacking and pointless... you’re probably right. Don’t give up. The key thing is that if you put

enough time in with a piece—even one that reads blah—you’ll find it will come to life through you, especially if you have any ability at all and even if you have no ability whatsoever. All you have to do is put the time in, approach it with simplicity, and be patient. The words won’t let you down. Future actors, I leave you this piece because it worked extremely well when read on the radio by someone with no more ability than any of you. That’s me. It’s not an easy piece to make work, but give it a shot. I suggest you buy a set of turkey pepper and salt shakers, and after this year ’s Thanksgiving meal prayer, place the male turkey front and center, and let fly with your rendition of— Steve the Inconsolable Pepper Shaker: “I’m Steve, the male, and the pepper, of the male and female salt and peppershakers. “Better looking than she is, Salt. My tail feathers are all fanned out like a bloomin’ onion. I look good on the table—better ’n Salt. Yet, every Thanksgiving when Aunt Elma asks which is the salt and which is the pepper, the genius humans at the table say “The pepper is the one with the tail feathers fanned, the pretty one, the female.” The male is the better-looking turkey. “And, and humans, we fly. We ain’t transcontinental, but we can get to where we wanna get, when we wanna get there, no further, no sooner, which is noble. Yet you genius humans think we don’t fly— ahh! “And what’s with this: you calling bad movies turkeys? And you call

cation seem to get in the way of this. Why don’t we take a step back and remember it all began the slow progression of bags? When you think about it, we began with our parents’ baby diaper bags, lunch bags, schoolbook bags or backpacks, and eventually graduated to employment bags. Bags come in all shapes and sizes, but many of us tend to deal with too many garbage bags. There are all types of bags: plastic grocery, brown paper grocery, recycling, handbag, sports and gym bag, tool tote bag, cosmetic and toiletry bag, personalized travel luggage, and carry-on air-travel bag. Bags, too, come in a variety of status brand and non-brand levels such as: Coach, Louis Vuitton, your basic leather, canvas, plastic, mesh, netted, quilted, and so on. Many folks even have personalized monogrammed bags. Last summer, a man I know had a unique bag, which he called his attaché case—his very own case for carrying and monitoring his bodily fluids after extensive surgery. Baggage—where does it lead or not lead? How many bags do you carry or can you carry? In any event, for those that want to get rid of any kind of baggage, do what my mother suggests. She has the correct attitude about the personal baggage we carry around with us each day: “Put it on an airplane and let it fly away.” Catherine M. Oliverio Wells, Vt. Catherine M.

his summer marks the start of a three-yearlong 40th anniversary celebration of NASA’s Apollo lunar landings. The celebration started July 20 with Apollo 11—listed on many calendars as “Moon Day”. The event continues with Apollo 12’s 40th anniversary on Nov. 19; it then resumes in 2010 through 2012 with the 40th anniversaries of the Apollo 14 through 17 lunar landings. Let’s hope that by Apollo 11’s 50th birthday, the U.S. will be well on its way with sending humans back to the Moon and beyond. In terms of our nearest neighbor in space, Apollo has helped scientists paint a more complete picture of the Moon. Rock samples, instrument data records, and photography contributed to a better understanding of our rocky companion. Still, many questions remain unanswered. Within days of the return of lunar rock and soil samples, researchers began tackling the mysteries of the Moon. In January 1970, nearly 1,000 space scientists from 10 nations assembled at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Tx. This conference of “lunatics” focused on the presentations of 142 principal investigators who examined Apollo 11 rock and dust samples between July and December 1969. Here are a few of the Apollo 11 discoveries announced by investigators during that momentous gathering: •The Moon is about 4.6 billion years old. The age of the Moon is identical to the Earth. •The Moon was extremely hot in the past. In addition to a period of intense bombardment, the Moon was also volcanic. Lava rocks at Tranquility Base are similar to lava rocks from Hawaii. •Apollo 11 astronauts observed transient lunar phenomena (or “outgassing”) flying over the crater Aristarchus; this TLP event indicates that

the lunar interior is still molten. •Two percent of the lunar surface is composed of organic-rich carbonaceous chondrite material. The carbon-rich stuff is most likely derived from meteorites. Many scientists believe space organics contributed to the evolution of life on Earth. •Moon rocks are “first cousins” to terrestrial rocks. This fact indicates that the Earth and Moon have a common heritage. •There is evidence of gold, silver, uranium, thorium, titanium, iron, zircon, rubies, garnets and phosphates on the Moon. Only future prospecting will determine if these metals and minerals exist in extractible quantities. •Three new minerals that do not exist on Earth were discovered in Apollo 11 rocks. Perhaps these minerals might have industrial applications. •Erosion is occurring on the Moon being caused by several processes: impacts, volcanism, moonquakes and solar/cosmic particle bombardment. Loose rocks scattered around the surface should leave behind evidence of trenching but the features are not visible. What filled up the trenches? •Tektites are odd, meteoritelike natural glass rocks found on Earth. About 50 percent of the Moon is composed of similar, although not identical, natural glass—both impact and

volcanic glasses. Apollo 11 astronauts didn’t find tektites, but an Apollo 12 lunar rock contains material that is chemically identical to some tektites. On Sept. 22, 1969, NASA announced that researcher Dean Chapman had used a computer to trace the trajectory patterns of Australasian tektites back to a very surprising source—the lunar crater Tycho. What’s in the Sky: In the south look for the constellation Scorpius with its magnificent deep sky objects: M6 the Butterfly Cluster, and M7 the Ptolemy Cluster, near Shaula; the globular clusters M4 and M 80 are near Antares.

Shelburne celebrates the good-old days Most 21st-century farmers wouldn’t trade their sleek gasoline-powered tractors, air conditioned cabs and cellular telephones for an openair, four-legged horse. But in the “good” old days of 19thcentury Vermont agriculture, horses were the trucks and tractors of local farmsteads. Those nostalgic “good old days”—perhaps more romantic in hazy memory than in the light of the harsh reality of the time—came alive in the fields of historic Shelburne Farms when draft horse teams and their drivers gathered for the annual Green Mountain Draft Horse Field Day last Saturday. A combination of antique farm machinery and new equipment produced by Pioneer in Pennsylvania to meet the needs of the Amish farmers, but popular with Vermont farmers who use draft animals, were used throughout the day. The mighty Clydesdales, Belgians and Percherons, bred for power and strength, pulled plows, reaper mowers, rakes, tedders, and

There even was a horse-drawn manure spreader on hand. There were also horsedrawn hayrides and demonstrations of using draft horses to pull logs and move

huge round bales. An antique threshing machine powered by a tractor separated the grain from the straw of oats that were cut and dried in anticipation of the event. An exciting element of this

year ’s Shelburne Farm Field Day was the chance to talk to the people who use draft animals on their home farms and even for innovative activities such as Pat Palmer ’s weekly rounds to collect the recycling in Bristol.

Jukebox junkies celebrate Neil Sedaka By Bill Wargo The time: Late summer, 1960. The place: Esther ’s Paradise Resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains. Do you remember that fateful Labor Day weekend when an unknown songwriter was discovered by American Bandstand producer Artie Shields and offered an incredibly lucrative contract by Silvertone Records? Probably not, but Saint Michael’s Playhouse sure does. Saint Michael’s recreates the momentous occasion in the snazzy jukebox musical “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do”. The historic weekend does not begin well for Marge Gelman (played by Lucy Sorensen). Marge has just been dumped at the altar by her boorish boyfriend, and she comes to Esther ’s only at the urging of her bubbly, funloving friend Lois Warner (Michele Scully). They resolve to have a Borscht Belt blast—and they do! When he was 19, singer-songwriter

Neil Sedaka (now 70 years old) actually had a summer job playing piano at Esther's Manor, in the Catskills, so Marge and Lois’s adventure in the Jewish Alps is appropriately packaged with over 15 of Sedaka’s hits, including “Where the Boys Are,” “Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen,” “Stupid Cupid,” “The Diary,” “Oh Carol,” “Solitaire,” “Laughter in the Rain,” “Calendar Girl,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “Little Devil,” “Love Will Keep Us Together,” and the title tune. Entertained and wooed by ambitious Elvis-wannabe Del Delmonaco (Burlington native Thomas Cannizzaro) and amused by Henny-Youngman-like comedian Harvey Feldman (Bill Carmichael), Marge and Lois are soon part of Esther ’s sweet, schmaltzy show. They certainly belong. Michele Scully recently earned rave reviews for her portrayal of Lois in the Alhambra Dinner Theatre (NE Florida) production of “Breaking Up,” and Lucy Sorensen’s voice was praised as “wonderful” in the Barrington Stage Company revival

Weybridge Fire Department was also called but were cancelled before they arrived.

The two finished one two again with Bouchard-Hall winning in a little more comfortable 43 seconds. BouchardHall's winning time of 1:00:46 was 1:33 faster than before. South Burlington's Amy Miner claimed the women's title in 1:12:55 after placing fifth in the first sprint of the year consisting of 600 yards of swimming, 14 miles of biking and 3.1 miles of running. The race was staged at Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore. Tragedy struck in the final 150 yards of the swim. A 42year-old Rhode Island man, raised his hand to call for help; a kayak rescue boat and motorboat arrived in seconds. The rescue crew pulled the man from the water where a local doctor began immediate CPR. Seconds later, they moved the man from the boat to the beach where EMTs and doctors responded to what is though to be an apparent cardiac arrest. An ambulance rushed the athlete to PorterHospital but the unidentified man did not survive.

WEST HAVEN - With the way Ken Tremont Jr. is running at Devil's Bowl Speedway, finishing second may not be such a bad thing. Tremont came from the no. 12 starting position Sunday night and rolled to his fourth win of the season in the 30lap 358-modified feature at the Vermont track. Tremont is getting on a hot streak just like he did in 2006, when he dominated the competition in the month of July, posting five consecutive victories. He's only got back-to-backers so far this year, but no other 358 driver has been in victory lane in July. Ray Hoard set the pace for the first 17 laps, but once Tremont got the front, Hoard could only watch as the No. 115 pulled away. Hoard crossed the finish line second, his best performance since running second to Tremont on July 29, 2007. Tim Laduc hit the finish line third, followed by Vince Quenneville Jr. and defending track champion Todd Stone. Robert Bublak drove to his first career victory in the 20-lap budget sportsman feature. Bublak came off the front row and led all 20 laps. With the last 11 laps of the feature going green, he finished with a huge lead over the Hoard family, as Frank Hoard Jr. finished second and Frank Hoard III was

State: $161,000 needed to preserve barns Monkton barn gets $10,000 EAST RYEGATE, Vt. – Governor Jim Douglas on Thursday announced $161,000 in Historic Preservation Barn Grants for 19 farms to help preserve their barns for future generations. In a ceremony at the Elm Brook Farm in East Ryegate, which received $10,000 to repair its cow and horse barns, the governor noted that the program aided two of Vermont’s most important industries, agriculture and

tourism. “Our farms not only provide jobs and a bond to our agricultural past, they help sustain our tourism industry by preserving our working landscape,” Douglas said. “I am very pleased that the state can assist in preserving these magnificent structures for future generations.” The grant program, administered by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, provides owners of agricultural buildings with

Ask Dr. Curtis Gross Chiropractor Q: Can chiropractic care help your internal organs work properly? A: Nerves exit the spinal column to bring messages from the brain to every part of the body. Most people know what sciatica is. If the sciatic nerve is pressured as it passes through the small holes between the vertebrae, there can be pain, numbness or tingling down the buttocks and into the leg and foot. Most people understand this, but don’t realize that this same nerve splits and carries messages to organs in the lower abdomen. The same nerves that send and receive messages between the brain and the shoulders, arms and legs, have branches that control and coordinate the kidneys, lungs, liver and other organs. A pinched nerve in the spine can cause pain on the outside of the body as well as functions in organs and systems inside the body. Dysfunction in the stomach such as an ulcer or frequent indigestion can be caused by spinal problems. Chiropractors adjust the spine to take this pressure off the nerves and allow the body to heal itself with the proper control of messages from the brain to the body and back again. The answer is YES. “the greatest wealth is health” Call 388-6376, mention this article and schedule an appointment for a FREE Evaluation and X-rays.

matching funding of up to $10,000 for a variety of capital repairs. Eligible projects include repairs to roofs, foundations, walls, sills and overall stabilization. In making decisions on funding, the Vermont Advisory Council on Historic Preservation prioritizes projects, giving particular emphasis on working barns to keep them in service and significant agricultural buildings in critical need of repair. “Every year we lose barns



to a variety of conditions, but these modest grants help stem that tide,” Douglas said. “The owners of these barns are to be praised for taking action to preserve them.” Advisory Council for Historic Preservation 2009 Barn Grants: Cummings Farm Barn, East Montpelier: $10,000 to jack and straighten barn, straighten and/or rebuild stone foundation, and regrade and create drainage. Damkot Barn, Jericho: $10,000 to replace roof. Davitt Farm Barn, Maidstone: $1,900 to repair high drive.

Look for Coupons in All the Right Places

Coupon Queen




the coupons will be sent right to your printer. It's good to note, too, that you're allowed to print most Internet coupons twice. Make sure to go By Jill Cataldo back and print another set if you'd like to buy more than one of each item, which is always a smart idea when the price is low. Check your store's Web site for coupons, too. Many stores offer printable coupons on their Web sites and some will also offer electronic coupons that you can load to your shopper's discount card digitally, via the store's Web site. This is an even easier way to use coupons since you don't need to print them out at all. Another great place to find good coupons is in grocery stores themselves. Don't forget to look for coupons in the aisles near the products you're shopping for. There are coupon dispensers and displays throughout the grocery store. You'd be surprised how many times you might find an item on sale for $1 ... and a dispenser full of $1 coupons right above it. Take advantage of both. Remember, pairing a $1 coupon with a $1 sale is one of the easiest ways to get groceries for free. Next week, I'll answer some more questions from readers like you. If you're getting started with coupons or you're a seasoned couponer with a question, please feel free to e-mail it to me at Your answer may appear in a future column.





Come See What We Saw! N


hen people hear how much money I save each week on my grocery bill by using coupons, there are those who conclude that I must use secret, special coupons that the rest of the world isn't clued into. In one of my coupon classes a woman asked, "Where do you find these coupons? I noticed my friend has different coupons in her paper than I do." Well, there's a reason for that. Did you know that the coupons you receive in your Sunday newspaper can be different depending on which paper you subscribe to? At times, companies wishing to reach different market areas will offer coupon promotions to specific newspapers. While all Sunday papers have coupon inserts, the coupons may vary depending on which paper you receive. I subscribe to two papers on Sunday, our local town newspaper and the big Chicago newspaper. While many times both papers will carry the same coupons, there are also times when one paper will have more or different coupons than another. The fact that different newspapers carry different coupons is usually - pardon the pun - news to most people. Obviously, I love coupons, and I enjoy receiving both newspapers on Sunday, not only to keep up on the local and regional news but also to maximize the number of coupons I get each week. Depending on where you live, it may be worth your while to see what coupons are available in each newspaper. While the newspapers inserts are always going to be the primary and best source for coupons, another good place to find coupons is on the Internet. Hundreds of product manufacturers and grocery stores themselves offer printable coupons for their products. Printing coupons from the Internet is easy to do. Browse to the Web site of the manufacturer of the product you're interested in. Look for a link to print coupons and select the ones you would like to print. Some Web sites may ask you to register for a free account. Others may ask you to install their plug-in that will allow you to print their coupons each time you visit. Then, simply click the Print Coupons link and

Foreign nations outpacing U.S. As the future becomes increasingly technology dependent and global science competition becomes ever more intense, the United States faces a potential shortage of scientists. Only 18 percent of U.S. high school seniors are proficient in science according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Only 5 percent of current U.S. college graduates have earned science, engineering, or technology degrees compared to 66 percent in Japan and 59 percent in China. Looking at these statistics, the national 4-H Youth Development Program is tapping the resources of the 106 land grant universities and colleges of the Cooperative Extension System. In Vermont, the University of Vermont Extension is piloting the 4-H Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) program to excite youth about science careers. Nationally and in Vermont, extension programming has brought agricultural science, electricity, mechanics, entrepreneurship, and natural sciences careers to young people's attention. Today, 4-H out-of-school opportunities also open the door to subjects like space science, robotics, global positioning, renewable energy, and computer science with hands-on learning experiences. The goal of 4-H SET is to inspire 1 million young people nationally and 3,000 in Vermont on the path of excelling in science, engineering, and technology by 2013. At its 2008 launch in Vermont, 4-Hers in Burlington and at a statewide teen leadership meeting in Fairlee took part in the first annual 4-H National Youth Science Day Experiment, using a disposable diaper, zip-lock bag, newspaper, and tap water to learn about hydrogel technology and water conservation secrets. For this year's 4-H National Youth Science Day experiment in October, 4-H has designed "Biofuel Blast," a hands-on experiment to introduce young people all around the nation to biofuels. Youth will become a scientist for the day, discovering how ordinary household products can create alternative energy, how that fuel can power many of the things we use each day and participate in a national youth debate to discuss the "best" biofuel based on experiment outcomes. Young people will be able to see how their small creations are part of a major current nationwide discussion. Youth will also be engaged before, during and after the experiment via several popular communication mechanisms, including cell phone text messages, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, and through the website In 4-H, children learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through more than 1,000 projects with topics as varied as pets and farm animals, rocketry, digital mapping, computer game design, public speaking, photography, nutrition and community service. For more information on the 4-H SET program, call Debbie Fajans, University of Vermont Extension 4-H educator, at 257-7967 or e-mail

have closed. Only 1,046 farms remain in business today and the figure shrinks each month. According to state data, dairy represents 70 percent of Vermont's agricultural economy—over $2 billion. The state’s farm business also generates over $68 million in local and state taxes with 96 percent of farm supplies—from feed to slop buckets—are purchased locally. With ongoing farm closings , the crisis will expand affecting feed dealers, farm vehicle and equipment suppliers, processors, farm insurers and creditors and other businesses. “The dairy pricing system in the United States is broken. It is antiquated, dating back to the 1930s when markets were not as complex as they are today, and simply does not work as originally intended. And although there has always been some volatility and market fluctuation in dairy pricing, the swings are becoming more dramatic and occur more often,” according to Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Roger Allbee. “This most recent downturn in prices is the worst yet. Cost of production is almost twice what farmers are getting paid for fluid milk and it's predicted that these low prices will be in effect for a longer period than originally thought.” Dairy farmers Bob and Beth Kennett of Rochester are the human face of Vermont’s current dairy crisis. The Kennetts started their Liberty Hill Dairy Farm in the 1970s. According to state agricultural records, 50 farms operated in Rochester area back in 1960. Nineteen years later, in 1979, only 11 were still in business. As of this month, the Kennetts have acquired the dubious distinction of being the last dairy farmers still operating in the Upper White River Valley. “Like many Vermont families, Bob and Beth Kennett had hoped to pass their farm on to their children, Tom and David... to raise their own families on the farm,” said U.S Rep. Peter Welch (D) in a recent statement about the crisis. “But despite their efforts and their hard work, the family now finds itself saddled with loans and losing money with every passing day. Like so many Vermonters, they just don't know how much longer they can afford to keep their doors open,” the Congressman said. To address the crisis, members of the Vermont House and Senate Agriculture Committee sent an emergency letter to the Vermont Milk Commission. Committee members urged the commission to take immediate action on the crisis to avert disaster.
