Copper Summer Fest thefts on to debut in the rise Middlebury By Lou Varricchio firstname.lastname@example.org
MIDDLEBURY — The rising price of copper has led to an increase in crime, and Vermont is not immune. The Vermont State Police and Vermont Department of Public Service, along with officials from Vermont Electric Cooperative, Green Mountain Power and Central Vermont Public Service, released a new warning about the dangers of copper theft. The latest warning was issued July 29 after a wave of break-ins, including recent incidents at two Vermont Electric Cooperative substations and two Green Mountain Power substations. “The person or persons responsible for these thefts do not realize the extreme danger they put themselves into. Cutting a ground wire is not without risk as they carry current and the effect could be deadly,” said engineer Hans E. Mertens of the Vermont Department of Public Service. “The value of copper stolen can never outweigh the value of a life.” Mertens said several deaths have occurred in the past year as criminals attempted to remove copper content from electric utility fences and equipment. Copper thieves routinely target vacant business and homes as well as electrical substations, cellular telephone towers and silos, telephone land lines, railroads and water wells, according to Mertens. People who see anything suspicious near a substation or a utility property should call 911.

email@example.com MIDDLEBURY — It’s as if downtown Middlebury has awakened from its deep, Rip Van Winkle sleep. Following the more flamboyant lead of neighboring communities such as Vergennes and Bristol, the shire town is finally hopping with year-round fun. Starting the year off with a zesty chili festival and moving on to the swinging Festival on the Green event—plus coupled with easy, visually appealing vehicle, bike and pedestrian access from U.S. Route 7 (Court Street) via the new Cross Street Bridge—downtown Middlebury is now the place to be when the sun shines and when it doesn’t. Add to the above mix the much-anticipated premier of the Midd Summer Festival this weekend at the Marble Works by the Falls—Saturday, Aug. 6—and you have an ideal reason to add Middlebury to your “must see frequently” list. This new annual event is organized by the Better Middlebury Partnership. It’s a simple idea to understand—it’s a daylong celebration of Vermont beer, wine, and cheese. See MIDD SUMMER FEST, page 6

Go for the gold
he ongoing debacle that it is the United States government‘s astronomical spending spree is a perfect example of why we should seriously reconsider a return to the good oldfashioned U.S. Gold Standard. Many respected financial pros, such as billionaire former presidential candidate Steve Forbes, contend that the only way to stop the expiring dollar is to back our currency with gold. Utah legislators recently passed a common-sense law that makes gold and silver legal tender, again, in that state. What a smart idea. Without gold or some precious material backing up currency, it’s basically worthless. And what has kept our money afloat since the 1970s is nothing more than Alan Greenspan’s “irrational exuberance”, except that the international reservoir of exuberance is fast evaporating under the dawning of a new age of financial rationalism. So, why not pass a law like Utah’s here in Vermont? Let’s make gold and silver legal tender in the Green Mountain State. Utah’s move was the first shot of a money war that is starting—albeit slowly—to put pressure on the Fed to return to the financial sanity of the Gold Standard. So where will all this gold come from to back up America’s money supply? Red China? No, Red China could care less about helping the poor USA out of its dollar problems; it is too busy mining its own gold to build up its own reserves (what does that tell you about the Chinese embracing of a gold standard?). We must look closer to home and be willing to dig in our own backyard. The Americas—north, south and central—have vast gold deposits that can help regrow our lost wealth and international status. New gold deposits have been discovered in the western U.S. and Canadian arctic. (Even Vermont has some potential for small, commercial native-gold devel-
opment.) It’s clearly time to start digging and stockpiling gold as quickly as we can. For example, take a mining company called Portage Resources, Inc. This firm is deeply invested in Peru’s potentially giant Bonanza Cuerpo gold strike. Some of this gold, found in early Permian-age sediments, could be earmarked for purchase by Uncle Sam when it is fully developed. But we have to be quick and be on-site before the Chinese. According to the Penny Stock Pillager newsletter, “Initial (Portage) drilling tests prove to be so promising that the project has been put on the fast track to production because not only do they want to take advantage of gold’s unprecedented price, but they’d be crazy not to be producing when the U.S. government actually makes the decision to move back to the Gold Standard... it'll be crucial that the government build up a solid stockpile before making the announcement.” All the experts say gold is popular at the moment because it is safe and they say it has no other deeper, financial merit. Well, they’re only half-way correct. Gold will always be a valued commodity; it will always be a safe haven in both troubled times and boom times. Gold behind the U.S. dollar is akin to that confident feeling you have when you’re a pilot of one of those fancy new, light sport aircraft with a ballistic parachute safety system. Or it’s like taking a long motor trip with a fully inflated spare tire. Or it’s like riding a motorcycle with a helmet. Well, you get the point. “Poor financial decisions, soaring oil prices and pressure from China’s exploding economy are driving the U.S. dollar to a 41-year low,” Steve Forbes said as a recent guest of Neil Cavuto on television’s Fox Business Channel. “Going back to the Gold Standard is a must.” It’s time for America to go for the gold— again.

ecause of reasons at which your Humble Scribe can only guess, he is not included in the high-level policy discussions in the executive suites of the public education industry. Thus, it wasn’t until the recent campaign to solve public education’s problems by— yet another—curriculum redesign came to my attention. If you recall—fondly, I’m sure—such past strategic initiatives as New Math, Ebonics, self-directed learning, whole language, and the supposed teaching of basic letters and numbers within an environmentalist weltanschauung, then you’ll not be surprised by two products of the latest pedagogical research and innovation. One calls for an end to the present archaic practice of the wholeclass novel; the other calls for an end to the equally primitive practice of the basal reader. Here’s a quote recently accorded lead-story status on the web page of Education Week (EW), an industry stalwart. “We have now reached a point at which teaching with neither the wholeclass novel nor the basal reader, in which the whole class reads a selection together, is viable. We must end these practices. They are not benefitting the students. “On top of that, our test-obsessed culture depletes our students’ energy, leaving them with little time for meaningful, authentic interactions…” and so on, including a pathosdrenched description of a disruptive student acting goofy when the teacher asked a question on the novel the rest of the class was reading. The preferred instructional model now advocated by EW on behalf of the industry is that the school select the most appropriate novel for each student in the class and employ as many aides as needed to help each student “…decode and comprehend…” each one. It’s also interesting to note that 95 percent of schools use basal readers, but not one has the former popularity of Dick and Jane. Today, we hear, the reader has been exiled for inadequate multi-culturality. Eh? For that argument, read “Losing Our Lan-
Jeter’s 3,000 hit T
he sports news is all about reporting and re-reporting how great a guy the 23-year-old who caught Derek Jeter ’s 3,000 hit ball is for giving Derek back his ballie. And the whole time I’m thinking—yeah, he’s a great guy, but what about Derek Jeter? He’s a great guy, too. Why doesn’t someone ask Derek why he didn’t tell the kid to keep the ball and go cash in? Humans are crazy for junk, man. The ball, the actual one Derek got his 3,000 hit with, isn’t worth anything—nothing, zilch, nada to Derek Jeter or the Hall of Fame. Set the ball on Derek’s kitchen table and what happens? It sets there. Give the ball to the Lopez kid and boom—it’s a house with no mortgage. Derek gives the ball back to the Lopez boy and Babe Ruth hitting a home run for the sick kid doesn’t seem like all that great big a deal anymore. Why the heck dose Derek need the actual ball? He’s got a 35,000-square-foot mansion in Tampa, Fla., which he’s more
guage,” in which author-teacher Sandra Stotsky laid out the sorts of things—such as the use of African or Oriental language bits or the purposeful introduction of story families with all unrelated members—all of which take time to explain and show up in such frequency as to detour the learning of basic English. (Stotsky’s book was written 12 years ago, and hasn’t been seriously rebutted since.) While the Dick and Jane readers have vanished, the once-basic novels—from “Huckleberry Finn” to “Ivanhoe” haven’t. Of course, they’re now all accused of cultural or colonial insensitivity and therefore the innovative educational frontier now should be, as EW reports, letting each student choose his own. Of course this all will require a one to one adult-tostudent ratio to guide a dozen (in Vermont; it would be 22 in Utah) different readers in a given classroom, each digesting a different book. So it’s akinto the crew-to-passenger ratio on a cruise ship, except that all the classroom aides and assistants now have a vested interest in the annual school budget vote. A theory that draws on the new management strategies decided in the K-12 executive suites is partially described in “Losing Our Language”: it says that teachers don’t control their classrooms as they did in the Dick and Jane old days. It seems teachers could very well teach basic reading and math if permitted to do so, but they can’t for the same reason that they aren’t permitted to maintain once-accepted levels of discipline in the classroom. The number of letters and digits to be learned (36) remains unchanged, but there are now ideological mandates which trump the teaching of them.

than earned and should enjoy. Hell, he should enjoy a 60,000square-foot house if he wants to, if you ask me. If you’ve earned your money, paid your bills, and not hurt anyone, frigged if I’m one to care what you’re spending your money on. If I had riches like a Jeter or Harrison Ford, you’re danged right I’d have a mansion. I’d have me a bedroom bigger than the house I live in now, which is 3,000-square feet—just a shack. So. no, this isn’t a Derek Jeter bashing column. No. I’m a fan. Instead of a Jeter bashing article it’s an article in support of what kind of guy I perceive Jeter to be—which is a great guy. That’s why I’m curious as to why he didn’t just turn the ball back over to the Lopez boy instead of keeping it and allowing it collect dust in a fancy memorabilia case next to the rest of his career chazzerai (KHA-ze-rye) junk. As cool a guy as Jeter is, he’s seemingly no different from the rest of us crazies. We’ll put value on an object that is worthless over putting all the value on what the worthless object represents.

Residents and businesses here in our picturesque Town of Chester, Vt., were thoroughly put to the test for patience and perseverance while dealing with planned bridge construction of not just one, but two bridges over the course of three months, right when public schools were wrapping up the year and summer tourism kicks into high gear. Chester is located at the crossroads of New England where east-west highway Route 11 intersects with north-
south Route 103. Would this major inconvenience divide the town or bring it together? We have been there before. So how has Chester dealt with this dilemma which more than bisected the town, cutting off access to the high school and businesses south of town from the village green in the center with major shops and inns? Early on town officials held special town meetings to explain how the Vermont Department of Transportation planned to replace both key bridges in the same time frame.
Plans for alternate routes for residents, trucks and out-of-town visitors were all outlined. There was the usual discussion and sharing of local concerns, especially why do we have to close both bridges to all traffic? Of special concern was the impact on the many small businesses along the north-south Route 103 through town that connects to the interstate and cities down country. Additional information meetings were held right up to bridge closings, covering See TWO BRIDGES, page 13

The $1,990,340 award is for Revision to continue the design, development and demonstration of a modular and scalable headgear system for mounted and dismounted soldiers, and to mature it to a Technology Readiness Level 6. The new system is intended to provide impact protection improvements over current generation helmets and

the integration of electronics and power. It will also allow soldiers to tailor their protection level and operating equipment to the specific mission at hand. This new helmet design will integrate a trauma liner,
communication system, heads-up display, CBRN mask and enhanced night vision goggles. The fully integrated and fully modular system will also feature a visor and mandible guard option designed to provide
better blunt force, blast and ballistic protection than a helmet shell alone. Revision’s contract announcement comes at a pivotal time in the company’s history. In late 2010, the company announced an official corporate name change—from Revision Eyewear Ltd. to Revision Military Ltd.—to encompass its new head protection business. In June, the company began operations at its new, Composite Center of Excellence and later this fall, the company expects to launch Batlskin™, its first generation, fully integrated, modular soldier protection system.

WESTPORT, N.Y. — Not only will the actors in this year ’s Shakespeare in the Park performance at Westport’s Ballard Park get to perform outside, but they will also get to take their talents on the road to Vermont. The annual Shakespeare in the Park performance will take place at Ballard Park in Westport on Friday, Aug. 5, and Saturday, Aug. 6, with the troupe also getting the chance to perform at the Middlebury Town Hall Theatre on Sunday, Aug. 14. “It’s a very exciting new part of the show,” Lindsay Pontius, who co-directs the Westport troupe along with Scott Gibbs, said. “I was recently hired as the education director at the Town Hall Theatre in Middlebury and we started a similar program for the first time ever over there.” Pontius said that she wanted to bring the two programs together, and that

they decided that for the first year, the established program would travel over to Middlebury. “It will be a joint performance and it will give the kids that come to the program in Westport the chance to perform under the stage lights,” Pontius said. The two groups will perform scenes from “Merchant,” and “The Tempest.” “This is a great chance for our actors to interact with the actors over there
through the rehearsals that we will have,” said Gibbs. “We’ve gone from being next to the lake to having Shakespeare across the lake.” Pontius said that she is pleased with the members of each cast, but felt that the local group was strong based on the nature of the play they were undertaking. “This is a pretty tricky play,” she said. “it deals with topics like anti-semitism and it makes you think
on different levels and makes the actors think, as well.” Cast members for the Shakespeare in the Park performances in Ballard Park include Rachel Abrahamson, Sam Balzac, Cassandra Day, Geeg Dedam, Cecily Glouchevitch, Jonathan Magoon, Ethan Markwica, Colleen Mulvey and Jack Newberry. Shows will take place at 5 p.m. in the park’s pavilion.

Big changes made at Doc Collins Field By Bob Chatfield
firstname.lastname@example.org MIDDLEBURY — Doc Collins Field has been home to a proud and successful high school football program long before it was named after Ray Collins, M.D. It has seen its share state championship football teams and before the advent of Fucuile Field on Creek Road, several talented boys and girls lacrosse teams that garnered their share of championship hardware as well. The facility has seen its share of up grade in the last few years starting with the “Eats and Seats” project that was completed in the fall of 2007. That included putting in a new concession and rest room area at the south east end of the field as well as putting in a whole new stand section on the east or home side of the field. “The old stands were outdated and starting to get in rough shape, and we wanted to grow,” Leonard Barrett who has served as present of Friends of Middlebury football and is currently vice president of the group. “Plus we felt we needed to address a real need by putting in the new concession area with rest room faculties.” The cost of the project was $240,000 all raised through donations by the Friends of Middlebury Football. That has become a common theme for the renovation work that has been and still is being done, including the donation of labor and materials as well. Next came new lights that were turned on for the first time this past fall. “The old lights were insufficient,” said Middlebury Activities Director Sean Farrell. “The last five years we were having to have the Middlebury Fire department come in and replace bulbs and then with the first rain they would go out again.” “Fixtures were old and heavy and the cross members holding them were suffering dry rot. Plus the pole at the southeast end of the field had started to lean towards the band room which was raising a real concern,” Farrell added. The lighting, which was completely in adequate, has seen a vast improvement. “The quality of the lighting is just so much better, which is a safety issue as much as anything providing better vision on the field,” said Farrell. This time a large share of the funding for the lights ($80,000) came from the taxpayers. But the Friends of Middlebury football raised the funds ($15,000 to $20,000) for the installation. The heavy rains of the last few falls have turned the field into a muddy, murky mess by the of the football season. Measures were

taken last fall and this past spring. Again the work done on the field came on a volunteer basis. “Joel Pomainvile came in donate his time and equipment to put in drainage tile and pipe that comes together in one section rerouted outside the field and down into the woods,” said Farrell. “The hope is that it will keep the field dryer and that when we do have a wet time that it won’t get saturated.” This summer has seen the old scoreboard that had been in place for over 40 years replaced by a new high tech board. Once again Friends of Middlebury handled the funding in part with generous donations from local businesses Rouse Tire and Monument Farms Dairy. Barrett also said the booster group is planning to replace the aging press box with that to be completed next summer. He said the
new tower will be a little wider and will have an arch in the middle that will give fans easier access to the stands from the parking lot. Some in the community might have concerns with so much work going into a facility that at this point serves just one sport. A concern that Farrell readily acknowledges is a concern for him as well. “It’s one of the reasons we have started looking into the possibility of putting in a turf field, so that it would be able to accommodate other sports (lacrosse, field hockey and soccer) was well,” said Farrell. “Not every game would be played there, but if those fields got to wet it would be there to play on.” “Plus the infrastructure is there with the locker rooms, which we don’t have at our south field, plus the stands and the concession area. And we are very lucky to have a
group like Friends of Middlebury football who have done the work to put that in place.” Barrett is heading up a committee made up of members of the school board as well leading members of the community, that is looking into the feasibility a new turf surface. That includes looking at funding that would lesson the burden on taxpayers as much as possible. “Its very important that this would be a multipurpose field. I’ll be honest with you I wouldn’t be using my energy on this if it wasn’t,” said Barrett. “I know that every game wouldn’t be played on the field, but when conditions got bad we could make things work right there.”

Experts give tips on harvesting herbs in Vermont By Charlie Nardozzi & Leonard Perry Vermont Horticulturists
SOUTH BURLINGTON — Herbs are best harvested just as they are beginning to flower in the morning. That’s when they have the highest concentration of essential oils and flavor in their leaves. Harvest entire branches back to within a few inches of the main stem to encourage new, bushy growth. If you have some bare spots in the garden, sow some carrots, beets, kale, and fall lettuce. You can even start snow peas and beans for a modest fall crop. Soak the pea seeds overnight to hasten germination. As you remove spent plants from your garden beds, if you’re not planting a fall crop, sow a cover crop such as winter rye.
This will help reduce weed infestation, minimize erosion and compaction from fall rains, and will add nutrients and organic matter to the soil when it is tilled under next spring. When Oriental poppies have died down, check around the clump for new seedlings. These can be transplanted to new locations if you give them a weed-free spot and keep them moist. If you haven’t divided bearded iris in a few years, and the clumps are large or no longer flowering well, you should divide them. Lift carefully with a spading fork, dividing by hand or sharp pruners. Leave several fans of leaves for each division. Check the tubers for holes and mushy areas—signs of the iris borer—discarding these in the trash, not the compost. Replant, making sure
the top of the tuber is at the surface of the soil. Check out dates for local fairs. These are a great place to get ideas on new flowers and arranging them. Try entering some of your own—you may just be surprised that you have more talent than you think! If going on vacation, make sure you have a plant sitter. Go over all that needs watering with them. Grouping pots together, if you have many, or moving them into the shade, will make their job easier. If you have raspberries that fruited in mid-summer, cut back the fruiting canes from this year. These wont fruit again, but rather next year ’s fruit will be borne on new canes that grew this year. Of course don’t cut back fall-fruiting raspberries if you want
fruit later. Begin harvesting onions when about half to three quarters of the leaves have died back. Then gently dig or pull the onions and store them in a dry, shady place with good ventilation, such as an outdoor shed or barn, for 10 days to 2 weeks. After the onions have cured, put them in slatted crates or mesh bags and store them indoors in a basement with low humidity and temperatures between 33 and 45 degrees F over fall and winter. Keep up with harvest of all your produce, giving excess to friends or local food shelf. Keep up especially with squash and zucchini. If your pickling cucumbers do get too large, consider making watermelon-type pickles with them instead of the traditional dill pickles.

The Eagle - 13
Two bridges from page 4 truck highway detours as well as residential street detours, and even handling emergency services with police and fire officials. As the first southern most bridge was closed on May 16 the impact hit home. Avoid the construction areas during rush hours, especially as big school buses navigate their way between the high school and the elementary schools along the narrow streets of the designated residential detours. As one old timer said, “I don’t go for my usual coffee and newspaper at the Jiffy Mart between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. If I do, it takes a half an hour to go less than a half a mile.” Imagine a traffic jam in a rural town of 3,000. So the first lesson was avoid the construction, but what about the local food market that sells fresh quality meats and produce as well as beer, wine, soda? Lonnie Lisai created explicit directional handouts for his grocery customers and delivery drivers. Many of the businesses simply cut back on help, or hours or production in full anticipation of decreased traffic in their doors. The Heritage Deli temporarily closed and moved further south on route 103 to the Vermont Country Store.
The Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce had detour maps on their website and mobile application letting the visitors know the detour routes. The Chamber also had a display case in the Guilford Welcome Center to showcase Chester businesses. Another strategy to help local businesses was the creation of a special website with major funding from the USDA Rural Development complete with calendar of events and how to navigate the detours. Cynthia Prairie and Brian Cunningham’s Chester United next partnered with the Vermont Country Store on Route 103S in Rockingham to print and distribute a brochure “You Can Get Here from There”. Elise and Payne Junker at Gallery 103 created the Route 103 Scavenger Hunt complete with brochures, prizes and specially fabricated green triangle metal signs for display. Beginning in May with the state-wide Open Studio Tour on Memorial weekend, special display cases were set up at the key Vermont Welcome Centers, in Guilford and Fair Haven. Visitors could see Bonnie’s Bundles Dolls, Tsuga Studios, Conrad Delia’s Windsor chairs, and Bob Sydorowich’s paintings. Lew and Bonnie Watters created special studio detour maps with gallery locations and posted them on their web sites. Craft Council Open Studio yellow direc-
tional signs could be seen all around town. In June another Welcome Center display went up celebrating the anniversary of Chester ’s Big Little Wedding between a cloth doll from Bonnie’s Bundles Dolls and a bear from the Hugging Bear Inn and Shoppe. Community art teachers, book author and illustrator Willow Bascom, a quilter from Country Treasures and Respect Club student volunteers helped youngsters create their vision of that magical June wedding from a year ago. Donated $1 hot dogs and a photo op on an antique Farmall Cub Tractor fed the hungry and curious. The Big Little Wedding Anniversary activities ended at Inn Victoria for afternoon high tea. Meanwhile, Chester continues to prod locals to visit the town’s many friendly and surprising shops via a stunning wide angle photo slide show of owners inside their establishments. Local residents along back road detour routes had their fun overcoming the frustrations of neighbors on muddy roads, lost city drivers, and even those who ignored all precautions including specially installed timed stop lights controlling one way traffic on Missing Link Road. If you remember Burma Shave road signs of the last century, you would love some of our local poetry: “Found the shortcut? Way
to go. Keep it right, take it slow”. Or this one: “Easy does it, take it slow, don’t bump into folks you know.” On July 10 when the good news came that the bridges were open to traffic, it was a week and a day earlier than promised by the hard working crew from Cold River Bridges. Now Chester is going all out to celebrate on Friday, July 22. beginning at 4 p.m. at the Green Mountain Banquet & Conference Center at the American Legion Complex on Route 103 in Chester. There will be children’s games, along with a barbecue and potluck. At 5:30 p.m. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin will arrive for a Ribbon Cutting on the Legion grounds. Oh yes, the Scavenger Hunt winner will be chosen along with, music by the Andy Lisai Band, a kazoo contest and other entertaining signing events. Our safe new bridges are open, so come see how Chester remains “The Vermont you’ve been hoping to find.” Lew Watters Chester
