The respected and successful outgoing state’s attorney began his law career in 1978; he has been a John T. Quinn: outmember of going state’s attorthe state’s ney in Addison attorney of- County. fice since 1985. Quinn, a Republican, served as deputy state's attorney from 1978 to 1985; he was appointed to the state’s attorney post in 1985 by Gov. Kunin, a Democrat. Quinn was raised in Vergennes and graduated from Vergennes Union High School in 1968. He graduated from St. Michael's College in 1972 and Albany Law School in 1975. He practiced law in Woodstock, Vt., for a several years before returning to Addison County. He is married to Maggie Quinn and resides in Weybridge. “I am very proud of the job that we do to keep Addison County one of the safest places to live in the entire United States,” he said. “My office was recently rated as no. 1 in Vermont with the highest conviction percentage in domestic violence cases.” Quinn has recommended that Christopher Perkett replace him as state’s attorney. Perkett is currently Addison County’s deputy state’s attorney. The outgoing state’s attorney ‘s recommendation will be reviewed by the governor. Quinn’s term ends in Nov. 2010. State’s attorneys are elected to four-year terms. Quinn has run unopposed for the elected office since the 1980s.

Administration provides “bailout” for the arts 42 local organizations receive money Gov. Jim Douglas announced that 42 Vermont arts organizations have received a total of $606,000 through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). These taxpayer-funded grants are billed as preserving jobs in Vermont’s nonprofit arts sector. “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is designed to jumpstart the economy, create and protect jobs, and invest in key priorities,” said Douglas. “Like other jobs, arts jobs help individuals and families pay household expenses, put children through college and achieve financial stability.” Through ARRA, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) received $50 million to help restore

and preserve jobs in the nonprofit arts sector. The Vermont Arts Council received $250,000 to support and preserve jobs in Vermont’s nonprofit arts sector. Some arts organizations were eligible to apply directly to the NEA and/or to the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) for this funding. If approved by one or more grantmaker, the applicant had to choose one. Sixteen Vermont Arts organizations were eligible to apply directly to the NEA. Of these, eight were funded for a total of $341,000. Vermont and Iowa ranked highest in the percentage of applicants funded at 50 percent, though Iowa only had eight applications. Two Vermont organizations applied di-
rectly to NEFA and one was funded for $15,000.

Academy graduates 38 Vermonters Troy Murray Jr. of Proctor graduated high school and spent four months looking for the next step. College was not an option at that time, but he did not have skills that would get him a job. He came to Northlands, and a year later he graduated from the Culinary Arts program. Troy is currently enrolled in college with the Connecticut Culinary Institute. David Ziegler of Norwich got his high school diploma, and then spent 4 years struggling through life. He knew that some kind of hands-on training would work for him, so he decided to come to Northlands Job Corps and try the welding program. David finished his career technical training, and secured a job at Structal Bridges, where he is currently employed.

Some local amateur astronomers claim Vermont has some of the best views of the full Moon in the northeastern United States. Their logic states that when you combine Vermont’s cool, still mountain air with the clarifying atmosphere often found over large, local lakes—such as Lakes Bomoseen and St. Catherine—you have ideal conditions for Moonwatching with either your naked eye or with a telescope. If you are among those who enjoy gazing up at Earth’s rocky neighbor in space from your backyard, you’ll probably enjoy a new collection of Poultney, Wells and Fair Havenbased Moon digital images immortalized on ceramic coffee mugs. Freelance photographer and writer Catherine Oliverio of Wells has taken her unusual collection of Rutland County lunar photographs and transformed it into “Moonlight in Vermont Mugs,” priced at $9.50 each. The mugs take their name from the popular 1943 song ay Sund c h Brun-2 0 1

Puppet explorers tour Lake Champlain Playful creations of Champlain, Hudson Life-sized puppets of explorers Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain created to celebrate this year for the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s exploration of the Hudson River and Samuel de Champlain’s exploration of Lake Champlain got their public debut last week. The two explorers met for the first time. In 1609, they missed each other by six weeks and 100 miles. The Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain puppet meeting was part of both the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s Small Boat Festival and the Westport Heritage Festival last week. The great explorers greeted the public and share stories of their historic travels and recent adventures. Both puppets were created for display at local libraries and have been a fun way to allow families
to learn about their history and promote literacy. The Henry Hudson puppet is currently spending most of his time with libraries within the Upper Hudson Library System (N.Y.) when he is not attending festivals and Quadricentennial events. Samuel de Champlain is being used by the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington, Vermont and most recently appeared in the Quadricentennial Parade in Vermont. The Hudson puppet was made in 2008 by a California dollmaker. His clothing was made by Albany Heritage Area Visitor staff member, Chris Persans. Persans also made four adorable smallersized historical puppets including a Mohican girl and a Dutch fur trader. These smaller puppets are used extensively in school programming. Champlain’s puppet stand in was made by Fletcher Free Librarian staffer, Christine Demarais.

Keep on truckin’ T
he process of taking a thought and putting it on a page—then into your memory, then presenting it to an audience to see if it’s effective—is the most rewarding and fun part of my job. Using someone else’s comedy material makes very little sense to me. That’s why when I first started writing and performing, and it became apparent my stories and jokes were salable; I made a rule to use only my original material in my shows. As time went on, I loosened my own rule and allowed myself to tell two jokes that I thought were very funny, that fit perfectly into the rhythm of my show, and more importantly, were fun to tell. I allowed myself to do that only if I told the audience that I didn’t write the jokes. I recently came upon another joke I like: The next time you come to one of my shows you may hear it, not because I need material, but because it will fit nicely in certain pockets of my show and, mostly, because the way it’s built calls for a type of punch line delivery that’s as much fun for a comic as hitting a walk-off homer is for a baseball player. I’ll tell my audience that I didn’t write it. If I do decide to use it, I may build around it a bit in order to punch it up. It’ll be fun, for me, to see what I come up with. Actually I already have built around it. It’s basically a totally new joke, 'cept for the punch line. Guess that’s what you call “Makin' it your own/Stealin' a joke.” Check it out. But remember, it’s all in the delivery— Vermont Farmer was bringing his cows ‘cross the main road, one of the few places in the state it’s still done that way. Out-of-staters just love driving over a path of cow doo. Makes ‘em feel welcome. About the time the last cow was ‘cross, a great big Mercedes sedan pulled through with Texas license tags; a big ol’ Texas guy drivin’, his big Texas wife next to him, and two big Texas kids in the backseat. Texas guy stops right n’ the middle of the path of cow doo—sticks his head out the window, says to the farmer, “This Here ya’lls farm?” The Vermont Farmer, without looking around says, “Hyuh.” Texan says, real slow like, “Back home in Texas, I get in my truck, drive from one end of my farm, all the way the other end —it takes me all day to do it.” Vermont farmer turns to the Texan and says, “I used to have a truck just like that.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

The hunt for pieces of Mercury on Earth
ith the distant planet Mercury visible in the evening sky this week, it’s worth looking at new research that suggests pieces of the hot planet are waiting to be found right here on Earth. We know that pieces of the Moon, Mars and asteroids have been found as meteoritic rock fragments on Earth. A recent computer model of Mercury's creation billions of years ago shows us that some of its ejected rock and dust ended up falling on Earth and Venus. These complex computer simulations, produced by scientists at the University of Bern, Switzerland, tracked where Mercury’s ejecta travelled over the course of millions of years. The Bern scientists spent months speculating about the fate of material blasted off Mercury and out into space. More simulations resulted and the Bern team now thinks that a large proto-Mercury collided with a giant asteroid about 4.5 billion years ago. Mercury is a dense planet, which implies that it contains lots of heavy metals. Mercury was formed much like Earth’s Moon by a titanic collision of celestial bodies; it then reaccreted, into the planet we know today, following the impact. At the end of the first Bern simulations, a dense metal and rock body remained after the impact with streams of rapidly escaping debris. A second simulation tracked the ejected matter until it either landed on nearby planets, was thrown into deep space, or simply fell into the Sun’s deep gravity well. Simulations showed that some of the ejected Mercury material reached all the way to Venus and Earth. Such computer simulations, made by pioneering researchers such as NASA’s Dean Chapman, began in earnest during the 1960s. These simulations have shown how ejecta from the Moon and Mars can reach Earth. In fact, Mars meteorites and some lunar material have been identified on Earth; however researchers still bicker over the origins of some of the space rocks. Bern scientists stuck their collective necks out and suggested that Earth might be the resting ground to as much as 16 quadrillion tons of Mercury’s ejected rock—
wow, that’s a lot of Mercury on Mother Earth. However, this idea will remain a scientific challenge to prove, at least until geological samples from Mercury’s surface are collected and returned to Earth for study. Next, the rocks have to be chemically matched alongside suspected Mercurian meteorites to ultimately prove theory as fact. What’s in the Sky—Get a fleeting glimpse of the planet Mercury low in the western sky around 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 22 (see accompanying sky map). Louis Varricchio, M.Sc., lives in Vermont.

Urbanism and its end I
n Tennessee’s Northeast Kingdom (as in Vermont, the handful of upland counties to the north and east of Washington) the urban centers (as in Vermont, but more so) are in decline. I’d guess, from personal observation, that Johnson City—three times the size of Rutland City—shows proportionally as much business and residential flight and I’d further guess that it’s trying just as hard to reverse the trend. Two recent events, one local and one national, illustrate aspects of their task. Local: In Johnson City, recent underground utility work revealed long-forgotten brick street pavement and street-car trackage, bringing forth a host of then-and-now photographs evoking both nostalgic memories ( even though none of the rememberers were living urbanites when the “then” photo’s were taken) and optimist downtown-renaissance predictions which would improve on the fairly bleak-looking “now” photo’s. No question that such photo’s are immensely attractive. If you thumb through such urban histories as Douglas Rae’s “City” or Lloyd Ultan’s “The Beautiful Bronx” you’ll see illustrations of streetscapes with the sidewalks civilized and busy, the building facades ornate, the street-cars functional, and the overall impression one of lively urban society-in-action. Rae labels that late 19th /early 20th century period “the age of urbanism” and his description of the flight to the suburbs even then in its early stages is compelling reading. Almost none of us who admire the “then” photo’s would choose to live there, which explains why our grand-parents and parents began fleeing the downtowns of walk-up flats over stores, street-car transport to mill or city park, schools with phys-ed space up on the roof, and so on as soon as they could affords to do so. Somewhere between 5 and 10% of contemporary American households have actually participated in the muchpublicized back-to-the-city movement, and all the rest of us, as surveys have repeatedly shown, want no part of it. National: A recent conclave of urban-renaissance advocates in Dayton was convened to brainstorm alternatives to the pervasive decline which Rae calls “the end of urbanism” which is exemplified by such 50% population-loss basket cases as Detroit and Youngstown. One recommendation: urge the media not to call them basket cases. Another: bring in street theatre and puppet shows to emphasize the “creative economy”. A third: level the abandoned buildings, sell the scrap lumber and brick, and plant subsidized gardens. And a fourth, from Dayton’s Mayor: “we are developing a boutique city”. She declined to elaborate. On her behalf, I will.
I’d guess that iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s advocacy for, and prediction of, the total disappearance of the traditional (think cubistic high-rises, brick-paved streets and light-rail trackage) city and its replacement by a very green and low density Broadacre City with no centers, is over-stated, and that small to mid-sized urban cores in particular can survive and prevail by offering small-scale industry, research, business, commerce, and professional services. Maybe that’s what she calls “the boutique city” but then chooses, in a nation-wide venue, not to describe. The conference chose not to recognize the serendipitous and synchronous urban-future news event of the decade: the first step in the departure of the New York Stock Exchange from lower Manhattan in downtown New York City. A decade ago, NYC paid the NYSE a more-than-half-billion bribe to stay, but now, in the first tranche of its exit-by-stages, the Exchange’s fast-trade hub is about to depart for exurban Mahwah on the New York/New Jersey line. Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

THE EAGLE - 5
Douglas congratulates young writers, artists Winners of the Vermont Forestry Centennial “If Trees Could Talk …” art and writing contest got personal congratulations from Gov.Jim Douglas at a special Statehouse ceremony last week. Eight winners were chosen from the more than 500 students who portrayed in picture or prose their appreciation of forests as part of the Forestry Centennial Celebration, sponsored by the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation. “The Forestry Centennial is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the role of our forests and renew our commitment to this vital environmental and economic resource,” the Governor said. “As we begin our second century, Vermont’s forests will continue to flourish with the support of all who cherish and respect this tremendous resource.” One art entry and one writing entry were chosen as winners in each of the following age groups: grades K-2; grades 3-5; grades 6-8 and grades 9-12. Winning entries can be seen online at: http://www.vtfpr.org/htm/for_cen_contests.cfm. Grand prizes are a one-year season’s pass to Vermont State Parks and a Forestry Centennial Celebration commemorative wooden log truck. “With children today watching over 30 hours of television a week, this contest was a unique opportunity for Vermont’s youth to take time to think about forests and trees — to slow down and consider experiences in nature and use these memories to inspire creative work,” the Governor said. “Their work highlights the important relationship Vermon-
ters have with our forests. With this early understanding of this relationship, Vermont’s forests will be in good hands for the next 100 years.”

Happy 80th, Kelly James Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on YouTube. By Bill Wargo firstname.lastname@example.org Over two centuries after his death, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is still in the news. Fragments of two works probably composed by Mozart (1756-1791) when he was about 7 years old were recently identified. You can hear the “new” Mozart played by Florian Birsak on Mozart’s own fortepiano at YouTube.com. In their penultimate summer concert, the Craftsbury Chamber Players presented a complete, live version of Mozart’s marvelously melancholic String Quintet No. 4 in G minor, K 516, for two violins, two violas, and cello. The quintet will convince you that Mozart-mania is justified. Constructed in standard four-movement form, the Quintet is deeply dark until the very end. After a somber initial movement and a rather gloomy minuet, Mozart unveils his monumental third movement, the Adagio ma non troppo. Musicologist H.C. Robbins Landon acclaims this movement as “possibly the most personal and intimate music Mozart ever wrote…a mirror of Mozart’s personal tragedy.” Mozart’s father was gravely ill while Mozart was writing the Quintet, and the elder Mozart died two weeks after the Quintet was completed. Mozart scholar Cliff Eisen focuses on the third movement’s musicality and pure preoccupation with sound. Pointing especially to bars 13-14, Eisen effuses about the “moment of stillness punctuated by a succession of exploding mini-supernovas outlining the prevailing harmony…a unique moment, profoundly captivating for its sheer beau-
ty…” What to make of the quintet’s cheerful fourth and final movement? Hermann Abert, author of “W.A. Mozart,” recognized as the best book on Mozart even though it was published nearly 90 years ago, concludes that “The tragedy of the first three movements and the jubilation of the last stem from the very same source: the wealth of emotions that assailed Mozart as an artist also lent him an enhanced awareness of being alive.” If you missed the live concert, don’t despair: YouTube.com has the quartet performing the Mozart Quintet with period instruments.

Twice the Fun: Double-Coupon Days L
SATURDAY August 22, 2009
ast week, I mentioned that pairing dollar coupons with dollar sales at the grocery store are one of my favorite ways to get items for free. Another easy way? Double-coupon days. Coupon "doubling" occurs when a store matches a coupon's face value and passes the added bonus savings on to you, the shopper. Here's how it works. When you go to the checkout and hand the cashier a 50-cent coupon during double-coupon days, the cashier scans it and the cash register automatically doubles the value of that coupon to $1. You receive a dollar savings on one item with one 50-cent coupon. Grocery stores handle double-coupon promotions differently. Some stores double coupons up to a certain amount every day. Others offer double-coupon promotions on certain days of the week or certain weeks of the month. Still others offer double coupons on some days and triple coupons on others. During a triple-coupon promotion, a 50-cent coupon is worth $1.50. These sales are definitely worth checking out because stores that double coupons make it very easy for shoppers to get groceries for free or at big discounts. However, in my experience, many stores have specific rules for the ways they double coupons. You'll want to refer to your store's coupon policy to determine exactly how your store handles these promotions. Visit the store's Web site for the information or ask for a copy of the guidelines next time you're shopping. For example, one national grocery store chain will double all coupons worth up to 55 cents every day of the week. Another national chain doubles coupons up to $2 each, but they only run this promotion for one week each month. Some stores will double Internet coupons, others won't. It's important to find out exactly how your store handles doubles so that you aren't disappointed at the checkout. Let's go back to our example from last week, the "dollar sale" at the grocery store. Our store has many items on sale for $1, including cans of soup, toothbrushes and bags of frozen vegetables. Our store also doubles coupons up to $1 in value. How can we get things for free? Well, any coupon with a value of 50 cents will automatically be doubled to $1. I have a 50-cent coupon
for the soup, a 55-cent coupon for the toothbrush and a 75-cent coupon for the By Jill Cataldo vegetables. With those three coupons doubling in value, I'll be taking home a can of soup, a toothbrush, and a bag of frozen veggies all free. It's important to note, too, that coupons typically do not double over the value of the item. This is different from the way some stores handle "overage," which is when your coupon's value exceeds the cost of the item you're buying. At many stores, using a $1 coupon on an item that is on sale for 75 cents will not only give you that item for free, it will also take an extra quarter off your total purchase. This is the overage value that was left over after your $1 coupon paid for your 75-cent item. However, when a store offers double coupons, they're matching the coupon's value out of their own pocket. So, using a $2 coupon on a $3.79 bottle of spray cleaner will get you the cleaner for free, as the coupon doubles up to $4, but it will not give you that extra 21 cents in overage. However, you'll be taking items home for free, and who doesn't love that? Now, don't fret if you no stores double coupons in your area. Coupon doubling tends to be a regional phenomenon. Here in the Chicago area, none of our grocery stores double coupons, ever! The closest stores that do are 45 minutes from where I live. (And yes, I take "coupon field trips" to them on occasion.) But I do the bulk of my weekly shopping in a store that does not double coupons, and I still manage to cut my bill by half or better with coupons each week.

Organic debate To the Editor: It is unfortunate that the Aug. 8 edition of The Eagle included an article (“Organic food: no health benefits, study finds”) about a recent, and deeply flawed, British study of organic crops without first contacting the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont. We would not only have been able to point out the study’s serious deficiencies and rebutted its conclusion that organic crops were no better nutritionally than conventionally-grown crops, but also provided readers with more reliable and up-to-date scientific information about the important health, nutritional and environmental benefits of organic foods and organic agriculture... More disappointing is the (British) study’s failure to even consider well-documented scientific studies that have repeatedly found that organic crops—as well as organic livestock products—contain far less and far fewer pesticide and chemical residues...

A prehistoric island in the sky Hike, drive to the summit of Mt. Philo By Lou Varricchio & Angela DeBlasio firstname.lastname@example.org
It may be hard to picture it today, but over 20,000 years ago, Mt. Philo in Charlotte was an arctic island surrounded by a deep, frigid lake called Glacial Lake Vermont. Next, more recently—a mere 10,000 years ago—Mt. Philo was surrounded by a temporary embayment of the Atlantic Ocean. Traces of these ancient beach sands, from
both prehistoric lake and oceanic events, are partially exposed in some of the open fields below the mount. The world famous Ice Age “Charlotte the Whale” fossil—found nearby and on permanent display at UVM’s Perkins Geology Museum—dates to the time of the Atlantic phase of Mt. Philo’s long and fractured geo story. Geologically speaking, Mt. Philo is a fascinating place to explore—it rises above the ancient Champlain thrust fault. What makes this mini mountain so special to rockhounds is the fact that Cambrian-age quartzite is thrust over younger Ordovician-age rocks. (Imagine your middle-aged facial wrinkles

disappearing over time as younger teenage skin was thrust over it—new skin for old. That’s life as a thrust-faulted mountain.) Located 13 miles south of Burlington off U.S. Route 7, Mt. Philo is an equal opportunity mountain. You can either hike or drive up the summit for a spectacular vista. A recent U.S. Geological Survey map shows that Mt. Philo State Park occupies 168 acres with the mount’s elevation topping off at 968 feet above sea level. The flat but wooded summit overlooks the Lake Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains. According to the official state parkpamphlet, from the late 1800s to 1924 Mt. Philo was a popular destination for guests of the
long gone Mt. Philo Inn. Visitors would ascend the mount via the carriage road (today’s auto road) to a wooden observation tower at the top. The park was officially established in 1924 when Francies Humphreys of Brookline, Mass.—owner of the adjacent Mt. Philo Inn—donated the land to the state. Check it out: Mt. Philo is located in Charlotte approximately one mile east of Route 7 on State Park Road. There’s a modest day fee of $3 per person. Hiking trails lead from the summit to the base. You can hike up the paved auto road or follow the woodland route that traverses a rugged quartzite cliff. Picnic tables and campsites are available. For details, call 425-2390.

Perkett From page 1 According to Perkett, if he’s ultimately appointed to complete Quinn’s term as state’s attorney, he will continue to focus on two of Vermont’s biggest challenges:
intoxicated driving and domestic violence. Since Quinn’s retirement occurs with time still left in his term, GOP members in Addison County will gather and review a list of possible candidates; at that time, they will submit candidates names if Perkett has com-
petitors for the post. Perkett said Quinn was an effective state’s attorney. Several efforts underway will likely see completion under the next state’s attorney’s tenure. “We hope to soon see the establishment of AIUs—authorized investigation units

Top Chef in a busy kitchen Palmisano is local Top Chef There are as many good chefs in Vermont as there are good restaurants. But what does it take to be ranked numero uno among chefs in a portion of Vermont’s Champlain Valley? If chef Sam Palmisano of Pulcinella’s Restaurant in South Burlington is any gauge of what the title means, then the bar is set high—very high. Palmissano took home the title of the Top Chef of the Champlain Valley for the second year in a row. This year ’s rotating valley location contest is not totally accurate by its claim—for example, this year ’s contest did not include Addison County chefs, according to organizer CVAA, the Champlain Valley Agency on Aging. “We try to rotate chefs from our four county area; this year Addison County was not represented. In previous years, Addison County made up all three of the competing chefs; it varies by year. The funding for this event however benefits the Meals on Wheels and Case Management programs in Addison County,” said CVAA’s Sarah Lemnah. Palmisano competed against chef Robert Barral of Café Provence and J.J. Vezina of the Windjammer Restaurant and Upper Deck Pub in an Iron Chef competition using all fresh Vermont produce, cheese and proteins donated by area farmers. The secret ingredient was announced to the chefs and the audience at the start of the competition and each chef had 50 minutes to create an appetizer and entrée highlighting this year ’s secret ingredient, honey. Chef Palmisano’s winning dish was a honeyed lamb tartare on mesclun greens in a ring
of lightly roasted green pepper and for his entrée offered up a sweet and savory crusted lamb on wilted greens and gnocchi with honey sauce. For Palmisano the competition was fun but not his motivation for participating. The Top Chef of the Champlain Valley, an Iron Chef Experience benefits CVAA and its Meals on Wheels and case management programs. For Palmisano it is not about the competition or winning— it is all about the money raised for CVAA with everything else a bonus. Nearly $25,000 was raised by the Top Chef event, enough to provide over 5,000 meals to local homebound seniors. Each chef presented his dishes to the panel of judges: Jozef Harrewyn, executive chef and owner of Chef ’s Corner in Williston, Melissa Pasanen, co-author of the cookbook, ”Cooking with Shelburne Farms: Food and Stories from Vermont”, Suzanne Podhaizer, a local food critic, and Annie Harlow, a farm-based food consultant. The crowd watched as the judges meticulously tasted and took notes regarding the flavor, presentation, execution and use of the secret ingredient. In the end their decision was unanimous. Harrewyn made the pronoucement: “Sam Palmisano is our Iron Chef.” Having recently lost his last grandparent, Palmisano said, “My grandmother was one of the blessed ones and many people have not been as lucky as her, CVAA does good work to help the elderly.”

Louie Allen: Rutland-area native is rising star West Rutland native at 2009 State Fair Rising country-western genre performer Louie Allen traces his roots to Rutland County; the musician was born in 1960 in West Rutland and is looking forward to a return to his old stomping grounds with an appearance at the 2009 Vermont State Fair in Rutland in September. Playing guitar and performing on stage at a very early age, Allen moved to Myrtle Beach, S.C. at the age of 18. Always yearning to write music, sing, and perform on stage, Allen formed a country music band, called Quarterline, before the age of 20. Allen’s band played the Myrtle Beach area for 17 years. After cutting his teeth in the south, Allen started opening shows and attracting fans. He has opened shows for popular Nashville stars such as Keith Whitley, Shelly West, Mel McDaniel, and Steve Wariner. Allen and his wife now live in Tennessee, close to the heart of country music, however, Vermont memories are never too far away. Both Allen’s first and second single “Honky Tonk Lake” and “Red Neck Alley” were ranked no. 1 on the Indie World charts. And the performer ’s newest album, titled ”Redneck Alley”, produced for Buckin’ Records by award-winning producer James Williams, has received praise by fans and

High-tech DNA detectives meet in Burlington By Catherine M. Oliverio email@example.com The second annual Green Mountain DNA Conference held recently at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center demonstrated the leaps and bounds made by current forensic DNA technology. It seemed like “Star Trek” warping into another sector of the galaxy with an array of DNA-related topics, techniques, and technologies—and the “Star Trek” theme permeated the multiday gathering. DNA, short for deoxyribonucleic acid, contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. Dr. Eric Buel, director of the Vermont Forensic Laboratory welcomed 58 attendees representing forensic laboratories, related corporations, and universities from the U.S. and Canada. “It’s like Christmas opening all these packages, and I can’t wait to open them,” said Buel. “We have a variety of presentations, and I believe

Aumand III, the director of Criminal Justice Services, Vermont Department of Public Safety. Aumand alluded to “Star Trek” when he noted that “...The first U.S. ship was called the Enterprise” sailed on Lake Champlain in the 1700s. Keynote speaker, Dr. Hendrik Poinar, McMaster Uni-

versity Ancient DNA Centre, began his presentation and said, “I think what I do fits well with the “Star Trek” theme. Poinar covered paleogenomics, the study of evolutionary geology, and speculative time travel. Poiner, his family, and a crew of 20-30 spend their summers on expeditions in subzero degree temperatures—Alaska and Siberia, re-
searching the preservation and extraction of DNA from forensic, archeological, and paleontological remains. Poinar is intrigued with how DNA can persist in environments past its theoretical time limit or in other words “time trapped”, i.e. a wellpreserved mammoth found below zero degrees. “We have found blood out of bone, as well as 70 thou-
sand-year-old intact heads of mammoths in ice caves at minus 20 degrees,” said Poinar. Dr. Bruce McCord, Florida International University, and Dr. John Butler, NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), discussed troubleshooting and common laboratory problems. “Troubleshooting is more than following protocols—it means watching all aspects of the operation.” “NIST is leading the way in forensic DNA through bringing traceability and technology to the scales of justice.

comparable measurements between laboratories with swifter analysis, higher sensitivity and stronger power of discrimination” Dr. Phillip B. Danielson, University of Denver, talked about his main research, which is the isolation of highly specific protein markers for the identification of biological stains. The discussion and development of an optical handheld biological evidence detection system with intrinsic fluorescence capability was led by Dr. Christopher R. Lloyd, MicroBiosystems of Utah, LLC. Having such a device would save a great amount of time at a crime scene—however, a smaller unit would need to be developed for future use. Dr. Christian Carson, Paternity Testing Corporation Laboratories, spoke about saying good-bye to the microscope to identify sperm cells by using a QuantAssure lateral flow cassette. Molecular biological techniques to detect semen and other body fluids in order to develop an automated, userfriendly method were presented by Dr. Cynthia B. Zeller, Townson University. In line with the “Star Trek” theme, Dr. Tania Chakrabarty, Arryx, Inc., discussed holographic optical trapping—a powerful technology for forensic applications, specifically sexual assault forensics. Her slides conveyed animated real time trappings. “Yes, it is possible to pick up one cell at a time, drop it, and grab another when this has been a laborious manual method previously,” said Chakrabarty. “The bottom line is to cut down on sampling time.” Dr. Ron Fourney, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, covered transformation in forensic science. Fourney entertained the audience with his humorous slides about “A Hero’s Journey with Spiderman.” On the second day of the conference, the audience lunched with Vermont author, Archer Mayor. He shared his antics of taking real crime scenes and making them into fiction. Another presenter, attorney Tammy Pruet Northrup, Office of the Louisiana Disciplinary Counsel authored the Louisiana CODIS law, the first piece of legislation in the country to authorize DNA sampling of those arrested, as well as the expansion of that law authorizing the collection of all convicted offenders and those arrested for felony offenses. A final workshop, held by Dave Oehler of Applied Biosystems, looked at future trends in forensic DNA technology seminar series.

Job fair shows high hopes in gloomy local economy More than 22 businesses and around 200 visitors is the total outcome of the first Job Fair organized Aug. 13 at Northlands Job Corps Academy. “It’s hard for people to meet employers these days, and have a moment to present their skills and knowledge. Most of the events take place in Burlington, so we decided to bring the focus back to the central Vermont area, and host a Job Fair in Vergennes. It was
a true success, and we are very satisfied” said the Academy Director Tony Staynings. Smuggler ’s Notch Resort, Fastenal Company, FedEx, U.S. Immigration Services, Spherion, Allscripts, COSTCO, U.S. Army, Vermont State Police, Manpower, Pike Industries were a few of the area agencies and companies that were represented at the fair. “With very positive feedback from
the businesses, we are hoping that the next job fair will be even bigger and better! And yes, we will do this again, and offer our communities another chance for a direct dialogue with the employers in the area” Staynings said. The date of the next job fair to be held at Northlands is not confirmed yet, but it will most likely take place in the fall this year.

Lake Monsters take State College series By Fred Pockette email@example.com The Vermont Lake Monsters got back on the winning track last weekend when they took two of three at home against State College, Pa., but it could be a case of to little, to late for the quickly fading Monsters. Even with the series win Vermont stood at 26 - 30 headed into ation this past Monday. And with just three weeks left in the season the Lake Monsters were in third place in the New York-Penn League’s Stedler Division, five games behind front running Lowell with just three weeks left in their season. The bat and the glove of Destin Hood carried the Vermont Lake Monsters to a 5-3 victory over the State College Spikes in the series opener last Friday night at historic Centennial Field. With two runs in and the bases loaded with two outs in the fifth inning for State College, Hood made a diving catch of an Aaron Baker line drive down the leftfield line to end the inning and keep the Spikes lead at 2-1. State College got an unearned run in the sixth inning for a 3-1 advantage, but Hood then tied the game with a tworun line drive home run over the leftfield wall. It was Hood’s first home run with the Lake Monsters. The game stayed 3-3 until the bottom of the eighth when Vermont loaded the bases on back-to-back walks and a J.P. Ramirez single with no outs. Hood then gave the Lake Monsters the lead with a sacrifice fly to centerfield and J.R. Higley added an insurance run with another sac fly to center for a 5-3 Vermont lead. Clayton Dill (3-4) pitched the final two innings for Vermont, allowing one hits with one walk and four strikeouts for his third win of the season. Lake Monsters starter Matt Swynenberg had tossed four scoreless innings before being touched up for two runs in the fifth on a Pat Irvine solo home run and Brock Holt RBI single. Teddy Fallon (1-2) gave up the two runs in the eighth inning to take the loss for State College after starter Kyle McPherson had allowed three runs on five hits over the first
Charlotte’s Lowrey wins second race Hinesburg racer wins one, too Charlotte’s Rich Lowrey won for the second time in three events in the Late Model division at Thunder Road International Speedbowl. Lowrey’s win on Pepsi Night was his second feature win of the 2009 season, along with his win last Thursday night, August 6. Dave Whitcomb led the majority of the race before losing the battle with Lowrey in the final two laps. Whitcomb held on for second followed by Jamie Fisher in third. Grant Folsom and Cris Michaud rounded out the top five. Jean-Paul Cyr widens his lead in the championship point standings with his sixth place finish. Nick Sweet finished seventh followed by Matt White, Craig Bushey and Jerry Lesage. Hinesburg’s Bobby Therrien won his second career NAPA Tiger Sportsmen feature after surviving a wild final lap. Therrien took over the lead with just under five laps remaining and weaved his way through a wreck on the final lap to take the win. Matt Potter just beat Derrick O’Donnell to the line to claim second with O’Donnell third. Young Cody Blake finished fourth followed by Joe Steffen in fifth. Martin Ingram of Essex Jct. captured his first career Allen Lumber Street Stock victory on Pepsi night. Ingram started on the pole but had to battle the entire race to hang on for the win. Rookie Tucker Williams finished second followed by Michael Moore in third. Greg Adams came home fourth followed by another rookie Danny Doyle in fifth. Donnie Yates of North Montpelier was the top finishing Power Shift Junkyard Warrior for the second night in a row. Yates was chased to the line by Ken Christman and Kevin Wheatley for the Warrior top three.
six innings. Irvine was 3-for-5 with a double to go along with his second home run of the season for the Spikes (28-27). Francisco Soriano was 2-for-3 with two runs and a double for Vermont, who snapped a five-game losing streak with the victory. Sean Nicol put the Lake Monsters ahead 1-0 in the third with a sac fly, giving Vermont three sacrifice flies in the game along with the Hood home run. Yhonson Lopez tied the game with a two-run triple and then scored the winning run on a J.P. Ramirez sacrifice fly as the Vermont Lake Monsters scored four times in the bottom of the ninth inning for a come-from-behind 4-3 in game two over the State College Spikes Saturday night at historic Centennial Field. The Lake Monsters had just two singles, both by Sean Nicol, over the first eight innings and trailed 3-0 as the bottom of the ninth began. J.R. Higley was hit by a pitch to leadoff the inning, moved to second on a wild pitch, advanced to third on a Justin Bloxom single and scored on a wild throw back to the infield by leftfielder Butch Biela. After Adam Amar flew out, Sandy Leon singled to rightfield to put runners on first and second with one out. Lopez, who was 1-for-13 in limited action this season, then grounded the first pitch from Alan Knotts down the right-field line for the two-run triple that tied the game. State College walked Francisco Soriano and Sean Nicol to load the bases before Ramirez hit the first pitch he saw deep enough to leftfield to allow Lopez to score with the winning run. It was Vermont’s first win in 2009 when trailing after eight innings (1-16) and also the largest deficit overcome to win a game this season. The Spikes had taken the 3-0 lead with single runs in the fourth, sixth and seventh inning. Justin Byler put State College on the board with a solo home run in the fourth inning off of Lake Monsters starter Paul Applebee, making his debut with Vermont after being promoted from the Gulf Coast League. Applebee allowed two runs on four hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work, while reliever Evan Bronson gave up one unearned run on no hits in 2 2/3 innings. Jose Pinales (3-1) allowed two hits and struck out two in
the ninth inning to pick up the win for Vermont, while Knotts (3-2) took the loss for State College (28-28). Spikes starter Michael Feliz allowed just one hit, a first inning infield single, over 4 2/3 innings and Mike Williams struckout seven of the nine batters he faced in 2 1/3 innings. The State College Spikes scored four runs in the top of the first inning and then scored a single run in six of the other eight innings to avoid the sweep and claim a 10-5 New YorkPenn League victory over the Vermont Lake Monsters on Sunday evening at historic Centennial Field. The Spikes used three singles, including a David Rubinstein two-run single, and two walks by Vermont starter Chad Jenkins to score the four runs in the first inning. The Spikes added another run off Jenkins in the second inning on a sacrifice fly, one of four sac flies for State College in the game. Edward Garcia’s RBI single in the third gave State College a 6-0 lead before the Lake Monsters rallied to get back to within one run at 6-5 as Vermont scored a run in the fourth and added four more runs in the fifth innings. The Spikes then scored single runs in the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth innings for the 10-5 advantage. Rubinstein was 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI for State College (29-28), while Garcia went 4-for-5 with a run and two RBI. Justin Byler was 3-for-4 with two runs and an RBI, while Evan Chambers scored two runs and hit a solo home run in the eighth inning. Tyler Cox (7-2) allowed five runs (two earned) over four innings to pick up the win in relief of starter Victor Black, who struckout four in three hitless innings. Jenkins (0-1) allowed five runs on four hits with three walks in his two innings to take the loss, while four Vermont relievers each allowed at least one run. J.P. Ramirez went 2for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI, while J.R. Higley had two RBI for the Lake Monsters. Vermont (26-30) took a couple of days off for the New York-Penn League All-Star Game, which ws held on Tuesday at State College. The Lake Monsters were back in action on Wednesday starting at 7:05 as they begin a three-game series against the Jamestown Jammers at Centennial Field.
Todd Stone picks up first Devil’s Bowl win WEST HAVEN - Middlebury’s Todd Stone isn't going to give up his crown at Devil's Bowl Speedway without a fight. Sitting far enough up front to avoid a multi-car wreck on lap 10, Stone easily pulled away from the field and recorded his first win of the 2009 campaign Sunday night in the 30-lap 358-modified feature at the Bowl. The win, numer 14 of his career at Devil's Bowl, allowed Stone to break Ken Tremont Jr.'s three-race winning streak. Kris Vernold came off the front row and set the pace for the first nine laps, but Stone, who had started sixth, was already up to second when the caution came out for the multi-car wreck. Stone used the subsequent restart to move out on the point, and with the race being slowed by just one other caution, he hit the finish line over six seconds ahead of Vernold, who had his best run since finishing second to Tim Laduc in the final race of the 2008 season. Vince Quenneville Jr., still looking for his first win of the season, crossed the finish line third, followed by Gardner Stone and Ray Hoard. Although Gardner Stone was happy to see his son back in victory lane, he also had to be pleased with his own top-five finish. According to unofficial records, the last time “The General” finished in the top five was May 16, 1998, when he finished second to Hector Stratton. Frank Hoard III rocketed to his third win of the season in the 25-lap budget sportsman feature. Anthony Warren came off the pole and led the first six laps, which were slowed by a couple of early cautions. Those yellows helped

Hoard move up from his eighth starting position, and he moved around Warren on a restart on lap seven. The field quickly spread out, and Hoard drove to a convincing win over Seth Howe and Jack Swinton. Josh Joseph and C.V. Elms completed the top five. Rady Alger passed Bill Duprey with two laps to go, and held on for a thrilling win in the 20-lap limited feature. Alger led the first three laps, but Duprey then moved out front and took control. But Alger was never far behind and made his move with two go, hitting the finish line a nose ahead of Duprey to come away with his first win of 2009,
becoming the ninth different winner in the highly competitive class this season. Duprey, Chris Murray, Joe Ladd and Paul Braymer completed the top five. Fred Little picked up his second win of the season in the pro-street stock feature, and Colin Clow won the mini/Duke stock feature. The night also featured the annual Mountain Man enduro, which was won by Kyle Gray. The annual Judith L. Richards Memorial will take place on Sunday, Aug. 16, with all divisions in action. It will also be Bikers' Night, with all fans (driver and passenger) arriving on a motorcycle being admitted free of charge. Racing

In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it s illegal to request any money before delivering its service.
