Bridge bash delayed until 2012 Champlain bridge party postponed as builder gets ready to place arch
Here is a section of the Lake Champlain bridge construction site, looking toward the community of Port Henry, N.Y. In the distance is the arch that will connect the New York and Vermont sides of the bridge. The arch was expected to be floated to the bridge and placed this week. The bridge was supposed to be finished by Oct. 9, but New York State Department of Transportation officials recently said they are not sure when it will open. The builders, Flatiron, have until mid-December to finish the span.
MIDDLEBURY — The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) announced tentative plans to float the center arch span of the new Lake Champlain Bridge to the bridge site and lift it into place the week of Aug. 22. Meanwhile, the Lake Champlain Bridge Community (LCBC) last week postponed the celebration activities recognizing the re-opening of the Lake Champlain Bridge. Originally scheduled for Oct. 1516, 2011, a new date has been set for May 19-20, 2012. The original target opening date for the bridge of Oct. 9, 2011 has been removed from NYSDOT website and current press updates. Attempts by LCBC to press NYSDOT for a revised opening date have been unsuccessful. “It is difficult to plan and execute a celebration of this magnitude when the opening date of the new bridge is an unknown,” said Karen Hennessy, LCBC co-chairperson.

Lt. Gov. Scott newspaper salesman for a day By Lou Varricchio firstname.lastname@example.org MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Lt. Gov. Phil Scott brushed up on his salesmanship Aug. 16 when he spent a day visiting the office of Denton Publications-New Market Press, publisher of the Addison Eagle and Green Mountain Outlook community newspapers. Scott visited the staff of the newspapers as part of his statewide Everyday Job Initiative. He has been touring Vermont and working as a “temp” in a variety of small business. He was in Addison County last in 2010 when he worked as a lunch server at Helen Porter Nursing Home in Middle-
bury. The initiative is a way for him to better understand the challenges facing Vermont businesses. Scott’s visit to the newspaper office resulted after the managing editor invited him to become a salesperson for a day as part of his Everyday Jobs project. “We all hear about how difficult it is for print publications right now, but it was evident to me— from visiting the Denton Publications-New Market Press newspaper office in Middlebury and from talking to the advertisers we visited—that the newspaper is still very relevant and still has a strong place in the community,” Scott said.

MIDDLEBURY — An estimated 1,700 people flooded downtown Middlebury on Aug. 6 for the Better Middlebury Partnership’s first Midd Summer Festival— meeting, if not exceeding, the committee's projections. “I could not be happier with the results from the First Annual Midd Summer Festival,” said Bryan Phelps of Noonie Deli, the festival committee chairman. “It was great to see the concept come to fruition through the hard work and dedication of the volunteer committee that spent countless hours on the marketing, planning and execution of the event.” Over 40 vendors were represented at the event. Breweries, vineyards, cider and cheese makers provided festival attendees with samples of their outstanding products. There were also other Vermont producers— such local meat producers, chocolate producers and American Flatbread—present to compliment the headlining offerings. “We were extremely pleased that the event attracted visitors to Middlebury from throughout Vermont and beyond,” said Phelps. “We are also excited that the event provided much needed funding to three great non-profits.” The event raised over $1,200 for both the Vermont Food Bank and the Addison County Firefighters Association and netted over $12,000 for the Better Middlebury Partnership — allowing the organization to continue its mission to make Middlebury a better place to live, work, play and do business. “It is important to note that the business community was instrumental in providing the support through sponsorship dollars and in-kind donations that made the event financially possible,” said Phelps.

“It was also nice to see a variety of businesses, many of which I didn’t know were there. Costello’s Market in the Middlebury Marble Works was a real bright spot,” he added. Scott also remarked on how well the newspaper ’s General Manager Mark Brady and Marketing Consultant Leslie Ross were received at the various businesses they visited. “The advertisers need the newspaper to stay in touch with the community, and they all praised Mark Brady and enjoyed working with him,” he said. “The Middlebury-to-Rutland-to-Ludlow corridor is a thriving community and The Eagle and the Green Mountain Outlook are definitely a part of that.” During his whirlwind morning sales training session, Scott visited several Denton-New Market newspaper advertisers: New Haven Tire, Champlain Discount Foods, Century 21 Jackman, Linda’s Apparel, Edgewater Arts. G. Stone Motors, Addison Outfitters,
Lt. Gov. Phil Scott Tourterelle Restaurant, Sears-Middlebury, Costello’s Market, and the Sheldon Museum of Vermont History. At the Henry Sheldon Museum, Scott met staffers and received a quick tour of the facility. “I enjoyed meeting Lt. Gov. Scott. We were delighted that the paper's Leslie Ross thought to take him through the museum,” said Mary Ward Manley, associate director of the museum. “We spoke about the Sheldon and a few of our upcoming programs with Lt. Gov. Scott. He seemed very interested our special exhibit, ‘Vermont Land-
scapes Lost and Found,’ which features historic photographs of Addison County from the Sheldon's archives paired with photographs of the same place today. I think it was great that he was able to visit the Sheldon and learn more about the wonderful cultural world that Middlebury has to offer,” Manley said. Scott’s busy sales morning included a visit to New Haven Tire, an auto service and tire retailer. “I was very impressed with Lt. Gov. Scott,” said Lisa Campbell, office manager. “I believe more politicians need to visit small businesses to get a better understanding of what’s really going on in today’s economy.” Did the lieutenant governor actually sell any display advertising for the newspaper during his visit? “Well, not really,” said the paper ’s Leslie Ross, “but it sure was fun to have him along. He’s a very down-to-earth gentleman; he cares about Vermont’s business community and the health and vitality of our community newspapers.”

Price of freedom of information
August 27, 2011
s a U.S. citizen, you have the right to see and review any government record that is not classified for national security reasons. All you have to do is file a Freedom of Information Act request. The filing part of FOIA is easy—the rest is a big question mark. When you file a FOIA request, you can literally watch the government’s wheels begin to grind to a stop. While you may have a legal right to view a government document, the government—state or federal—can take its grand old time in responding. Delays in filling FOIA requests may be attributed to bureaucracy and politics—but you’ll never know. Such FOIA request responses can days or years. I personally learned of one FOIA request—and there are thousands like it—that has been waiting 15 years for a response. Something is very wrong in how our government—under law—treats a citizen’s request to seek the truth. FOIA had bi-partisan support in the 1960s and U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson (D) finally signed it into law on July 4, 1966 (it was rewritten in 1974 to include the Privacy Act and then amended in 1996, 2002 and 2007). Today, I am not sure if it’s exactly the way the 1966 Congress had envisioned, it and I am not even sure why it has been tinkered with so often. Now the so-called Faster FOIA proposal is ready for Congress to review, but legislators are just as slow as dealing with it as are the government’s responses to thousands of FOIA requests. Both political parties have been playing politics with the FOIA, but now the Faster FOIA may get a needed boost before the 2012 election. The lawmakers behind the new Faster FOIA are Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) and Texas U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R). It’s rare when a liberal (Leahy) and a conservative (Cronyn) can agree on anything, let alone work together to craft legislation, but both senators agree that freedom means not only the pursuit of happiness, it also means the pursuit of truth. According to Cronyn, “Citizens have a fundamental right to know what their government is doing and political operatives
should not be interfering with legitimate requests by citizens and journalists under the Freedom of Information Act.” When Congress reconvenes in a few weeks, the Leahy-Cronyn Faster FOIA will be reintroduced to the Congress. It’s hard to imagine the House’s Republican majority in rejecting the measure. Most Democrats appear on board. According to a recent editorial in the Battle Creek (Mich.) Inquirer, “The bill seeks to create an advisory panel that would examine the reasons behind the backlog in FOIA requests and recommend to Congress how the process can be expedited. Whether the legislation will actually result in more timely replies to FOIA requests is unknown, but at least it will give lawmakers a little more leverage in pushing agencies to respond.” In the case of FOIA to date, the price of freedom of information doesn’t come cheap—it costs Uncle Sam nearly $500 million every year to process FOIA requests. However, now is not the time to use budget-slashing as an excuse to abandon the democratic principles of FOIA. Cronyn gives the best reason for assuring timely FOIA requests before the 2012 election: “I am deeply disturbed that Obama administration political operatives have filtered FOIA requests based on the political or professional affiliation of those requesting the transparency guaranteed to our citizens under federal law. And I commend the House panel for doing its job of oversight of the executive branch, and I hope they get to the bottom of these allegations.” On a state level, Vermont is making some progress in providing access to information. Now Vermont citizens can find out the names of vendors selling goods and services to state government and the amounts of their transactions. The State of Vermont Transparency site—www.vttransparency.org—allows viewers to see over 121,000 vendor transactions. The cost to citizens to see the data: zero. Lou Varricchio

any years ago in Vermont, the Webbs (in Shelburne) and Billings (in Woodstock) chose to buy in, and play, country gentlemen on lands formerly farmed by folks ill-positioned to resist a buyout. In mid-scale, it happened at innumerable times and places up and down the Appalachia (yes, Vermont is technically a part of Appalachia). Towards the upper end of the wealth scale, there’s the Reynolds’ Tanglewood on the once-small-farm outskirts of WinstonSalem, N.C., and, of course, at the apex of such ventures, there’s the once-near-countysize Biltmore Estate in the hills of western North Carolina. It turned out that even the vast late 19th century rail fortunes of the Vanderbilts were not enough to subsidize such a magnificent trust-funder playground. Thus, in the early 20th century, most of the land was sold or gifted off; the French chateau version of Potemkin Village with an agriculturaltheme-park was converted to just enough profitable mini-enterprise to replace red ink with black on the balance sheets. The Biltmore has been doing just fine ever since. Right now the day-visitor ’s ticket costs $59. Rhetorical question: has the high-cost-ofentry-and-stay Biltmore been the model for the contemporary Gentry-Left restructuring of the Vermont economy—a new Biltmore in the Green Mountains? Vermont is no exception to the general rule that those who are gentrified out of their houses and businesses—and off their land by government or the evil rich—don’t like it and say so. The Dutch truck-gardeners of mid-Manhattan in the mid 19th century didn’t like being run off at bayonet point for the creation of Central Park (it wasn’t even shown on the infamous 1811 Manhattan street-grid plan). Wikipedia notes that it wasn’t envisioned by the planners until 1853. The hill-farmers of the mid Appalachians were similarly run off by government for the creation of the Blue Ridge Parkway (for their motoring betters) during the Depression and didn’t like it either. When the Interstate Highway System was
pushed through Vermont in the early 1960s, there were similar stories of futile landowner resistance—at the same time that “Farm for Sale $20 per Acre” signs could be seen up and down Route 100. The Vanderbilts, it’s safe to guess, bought out the original 125,000 Biltmore acres from some 4,000 smallscale hill farmers at even lesser acreage values in the 1880s. But the next, trustfunder Vanderbilt generation couldn’t keep it; unlike the government, the family couldn’t run annual budget deficits. By 1914 the first 85,000 acres were sold off—to the feds. Presently the Biltmore has shrunk to a mere 8,000 acres, but it is run at a profit. In Vermont the passive sector of the economy isn’t yet the largest, but it’s the fastestgrowing. Dairy farms (once there were more cows than people—back then the majority of the latter liked it that way) are below a thousand. This year, a nationwide recession year, Vermont governance posted a genteel little surplus of $40 million, one of only a handful of states to do so. In contrast, there’s been a series of non-trust-funder-oriented governances, from California’s Orange County in 1994 to the big city of Birmingham, Ala., and the little city of Central Falls, R.I., which went or are going bankrupt this year for the usual governance/management misjudgment reasons. Vermont’s discreet little surplus isn’t the only proof: for two key sectors, housing and employment, in numeri, veritas videtur: in the numbers, the truth can be seen. It’s been widely known, for example, that Vermont’s housing economics situation is stronger than elsewhere with higher value and lower mortgages per unit: in fact, housing costs have been a complaint-subject. The U.S. Housing Finance Agency reports the following in a new state ranking based on recent widespread value-declines: U.S. average, down 19 percent; Vermont average, up 7 percent. Similar, too, for the employment situation. See MARTIN HARRIS, page 16
The Logger deals with gettin’ old N
othing to enlighten, amuse, provoke thought, or repulse in this week’s column. I’ll just say that I appreciated every one of the relatively large number of responses I received on a column I did a few weeks ago—about my decision to skip a routine 50-yearold-guy colonoscopy. Of the e-mail and “live” on-the-street and the Addison County Fair comments I received, I’d say half were pro, the other half con/against, my decision. I didn’t do a controlled survey, but the 50/50 result is from a loosey goosey guesstimate on my part. I figure lots of folks with opinions didn’t chime in and I wouldn’t venture a guess as to which side those folks are weighted toward. I’m just saying I’m flattered by the response. It figures a health-themed column would perk your interest, especially one that deals directly with Cancer—the “Big C” as we used to call it in the late 1960s (the big D was divorce, the big E is the fair in Mass., and the first letter on the eye chart—should I continue with this nonsense?) Anyhow, both general and cancer health awareness is ever growing, which is great, great, great. I trust a byproduct of more awareness is the number of us all pitching in time and money for research and comforting those dealing with poor health. I’ve not been able to respond to you all (a couple e-mails I returned bounced back), so I’ll use this space to say I’ll heed everyone of the bits of advise I got. For those who told me I’m fine without one, I’ll say I’m not going to get a colonoscopy, yet. For those who told me I should get one, I’ll say I’m going to get one, just not yet. Why wait? Ah, well, the answers to that question are in the original column. I just feel like I want to wait a bit and I feel I’m in the clear
with that choice. I don’t feel 50 is the do-all age, more than 48 or 53 are. I basically still feel like a young guy, invincible; and though I’d tell any young guy to beware of that feeling, I myself take solace in still feeling invincible at this age. Friggin’ makes no sense what I’m saying, does it? However, you might remember a two-part column I did on my teeth. It was full of praise and wonder for them. I bragged about how my teeth look, but mostly went on about how they perform, which is, perfectly, for 50 years. Since those columns, a little more than a month long ago, I’ve lost a part of a lower molar. Yup, about 20 percent of it, my dentist said. When it happened, the affected area felt odd, but it wasn’t sensitive or sharp. But of course I alerted my dentist and he strongly suggested, after a thorough look-see, that I get a crown. He said he could fill it, but said that would only serve the tooth to and end that is similar to all the fixes our government leaders make—temporary. I opted 100 percent for the crown. No problem, my dentist said, it’ll be like new and should stay that way ‘til I kick. So, here I was all about how my teeth were way above par, with nothing more than a few cavities filled through 50 years, when all of a sudden, ping, oops, busted. I’ll get a colonoscopy, maybe because of the comments I got from folks saying I should. Or maybe I’ll get it because my tooth breaking is to me a small sign time is passing along, and that I should no longer trust the feeling of invincibility I have. Maybe because it’s the smart thing to do. I’ll get one, just not right off. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Celebrating 63 years of Field Days Today, as it was when the fair began in 1948, Addison County is characterized by its excellence in agriculture. This is still the land of milk and honey. This year ’s 63rd annual Addison County Fair & Field Days may have wrapped up two weeks ago, but it was just the latest install-
ment of a tradition of celebrating that way of life, while showcasing the old and the new in an educational way. With the addition of new events each year, and the continuation of past favorites, the fair continues to grow. The fair ’s traditional carnival rides, good
food, 4-H and open class animal shows, plus demo derbies, tractor pulling, live bands, kids activities, special demonstrations, and of course, many exhibits attract thousands each year. But August’s Field Days are only a small part of the New Haven-based fairgrounds
operation. The fairgrounds are open from April through October for corporate and private functions, too. Fair officials believe the ongoing success of the fair is due, in great part, to its partnership with the agricultural community and the efforts of many volunteers, including its board of directors.

Coming to a farm near you—robots By Lou Varricchio firstname.lastname@example.org ORWELL — The robot revolution in Vermont farming will not be televised. Instead, it will quietly transform dairy operations as we know it today. The robot revolution is actually an electronic revolution which includes everything from iPad farm apps to automated, self-directing tractors—part of an experimental effort by heavy equipment maker John Deere—and the use of realtime, remote-sensing NASA satellite imagery (of acreage moisture and crop infestation) for farmers to peruse. Here in Vermont, the robot revolution is occurring in the barn with the latest generation of so-called robot milkers.
Last week, the 143-yearold Hall and Breen Organic Farm in Orwell—among the oldest farms in Vermont— opened its doors to farmers from Addison and Rutland counties to see demonstrations of its twin high-tech robomilkers called the Lely Astronaut, the brand name for the automated milking units. The units replace the need for hiring some farm hands. The farm started using the robots in January, but owners Hall and Breen waited until now to unveil their family secret and display all the data collected so far. (As an aside, we’re not quite sure what an “astronaut” has to do with robot milking, but the Space Age concept is never-the-less revolutionary.) The milkers, built by Dutch-owned Lely Group,
Decks, Sheetrock, Roofing, etc.
are silent giants. Each huge, distinctive red unit—which look like Star Trek sci-fi shuttlecraft—includes tubing, circuitry, sensors, brushes, displays, software, and other gizmos only a computer geek could appreciate. The units, each about the size of two passenger vans combined, automatically milk cows, 24/7, as needed. Each of Hall-Breen’s 150 or so cows has an electronic transponder built into its collar, so the robots can sense each individual cow as she approaches the milker. Other electronic sensors are located inside the arm of the robot, just beside where the utter is placed. During milking, cow’s milk is continuously monitored per quarter, providing data on mastitis, fat, and lactose. Every cow has its own database, so the Lely Astronaut probably knows more about each individual cow
than the farmer—and its electronic brain never forgets. Robots on a dairy farm allow farmers, like Hall and Breen, to manage milk quality and cow health as well as respond if a problem or health issue appears. “The Astronaut brushes remove dirt and manure, even if it sticks,” said Paul Goden of Enosburg Falls, distributor of the Lely Astronaut in Vermont. ”It is the only milking robot that cleans the teat area where teat cups can touch as well as the bottom udder close to the teat.” Goden said the tactile touch of the robot provide stimulation which is vital to the cow’s release of the hormone oxytocin. According to Orwell Fire Chief and Hall-Breen farm patriarch Louie Hall, 67, the robot workers never complain. And at a cost of $140,000 per unit, the cleanliness and efficiency of the

robots will mean a quick return on investment. “With the Lely Astronaut, there’s no human intervention required,” he said. “This is far better than a par-

lor-style milker. They are energy efficient and the computerized systems let us create a database on the herd.” For Hall’s co-owner daughter Jennifer Breen, the savings mean not having to get up at 4 a.m. or even earlier every day. “The robots do present a change for the farming lifestyle,” Breen said. “I discovered I was able to leave the farm to see my child’s school games. Before the robots, I just couldn’t do that. You had to be on the farm around the clock to keep an eye on things. So, with the Lely Astronauts at work I get more time to spend with my husband and kids. In that sense, it’s very revolutionary.” While area farmers gathered to see the Lely Astronauts in action, Goden’s staffers served up free hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and—you guessed it—organic milk. They were on hand to answer questions, too, and educate curious farmers about the labor-saving units. “I had to see this to believe it,” said an unidentified Benson farmer eating a hot dog outside the Hall-Barn milking barn. “My big question is financing. But then I can see what a big change it would mean on my farm. I am very interested in the Hall-Breen operation.” Currently, according to Goden, only a few farms in Vermont are taking the baby steps required to be a part of the farm-robot revolution— 11 Lely milking robots work are quietly working at four farms in the state. Two more farms, one in Richmond and the other in Morrisville, will “go robot” soon. While investment costs can be off-putting, the robot costs are really not much more than the price tags on some large motorized farm gear. Ultimately, more robots and computers on the farm will help reduce costs, streamline operations, and allow farmers to become more efficient and keep more of what they earn. And that’s a good thing in the rush to save small, family farms like the Hall-Breen Organic Farm. Today’s technological revolution may not be televised, but dairy farming in Vermont will never be the same.

By Bob Chatfield email@example.com MIDDLEBURY — Bright sunshine, temp in the 80s seems like the perfect scenario for finding a nice shady spot to kick back in a hammock or hitting the beach. Members of the Middlebury Union and Mount Abraham Union High football teams may have done just that this past Saturday. But the fun stuff had to wait until after they met in a preseason scrimmage this past Saturday, Aug. 20. For the third year in a row the two programs capped off the first week of practice
meeting in Middlebury. If nothing else it gave players from both teams someone else to look at across the line of scrimmage. “For our guys I think it was good to have the chance to hit someone else after a week of two a days,” said Middlebury Union High Coach Dennis Smith. The start of the 2011 season brings some interesting challenges for both teams. Last fall Middlebury went undefeated until falling to Rice Memorial in the Division II state finals played at Castleton State College. That success along with increased numbers in the program had the Tigers being moved back into Division I. They along with Colchester High, Champlain Valley Union and Mount Mansfield Union will be part of an expanded division that will feature 14-teams and an 8-team post season play-off format. While, Middlebury faces the challenge of playing in what many feel if the primer league in the state, Mount Abe will look to establish itself as a competitive program at the Division III level. The last couple years have been tough for the Eagle program with just one win in two seasons. But a new season brings a new hope, and while a veteran Middlebury team controlled the scrimmage for the most part on Saturday, the Eagles showed plenty of promise as well. “Middlebury has very good team that will be very
competitive in Division I” said Mount Abe coach Ernie Senecal. “I was real pleased with the way our guys competed with them. I thought we moved the ball well at times and our defense was able to hold their own with their offense.” “What has been encouraging so far is the spirit of this group. So they have come in with the best attitude of any group we’ve have the last couple of years.” For his part, Smith was impressed with what he saw of the Eagles, as well as his own starting group. “Mount Abe still has away to go and some things to work on, but I thought that was the best they’ve looked since we started doing this,” said Smith. “I thought our first group looked real good. The thing is this is a senior laden starting group after that we drop to juniors and sophomores and there is a pretty good separation between the two groups.” Both teams have another preseason test this coming weekend. Middlebury will have a stiff test as the Tigers will host the Fair Haven Union High Slators in a scrimmage this Saturday, Aug. 27. Mount Abraham and Middlebury will them open the 2011 season Labor Day weekend with both teams playing on the road. Mount Abe with square off against Montpelier High Friday, Sept. 2, while Middlebury will take the on the Mount Mansfield Union High Cougars on Sept. 3.

Running barrels: Speed and control By Marcia King
Any fan or competitor of barrel racing knows that speed is critical. They also know that a controlled ride is equally important. The fastest horse that goes wide around the barrels adds precious seconds to the run. The swift horse that comes in too tight and knocks over a barrel receives costly penalties. And the quick mount with sloppy form going around the barrel isn’t running efficiently. Explains trainer/competitor Mary Burger, “Speed is usually not much of a problem, especially today where horses have speed bred right into them. Top-notch horses need speed and turn. A level or two down, good turns are even more of a primary factor. In fact, you see horses that may not have that much run, but they get into placings because they were smooth.” Burger knows. She’s a five-time AQHA World Quarter Horse champion in junior and senior barrels and a five-time Quarter Horse Congress winner in barrels and poles. She’s also nabbed numerous Quarter Horse awards for superior barrels, and along the way, she’s grabbed a Futurity and Derby win in barrels at the richest barrel futurity in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and, not incidentally, captured a world title in junior pole bending also at the AQHA World shows. For Burger, the secret to accomplishing the smoothest, fastest run with a horse begins not with refining fast barrel runs but by starting with the basics — around poles and barrels.
Building the barrel horse Before beginning barrel training, a horse should know how to pick up leads and lope circles. Burger also makes sure the horse understands that “whoa” and a little check on the rein means the horse should slow down its pace a bit and relax its body in preparation for turns. Burger starts her barrel horses on poles and barrels at the same time. “I use the pole bending patterns as one of the basics,” she says. “Poles teach them to move over, to sidepass, and things like that. It aids in control of the barrel horse and gives them something else to do.” Training sessions begin with a warm-up on the barrels. Burger says, “I go around barrels to work on the sidepass. I may go to the left and pick out the second barrel, circle it, go on around and then go around the third barrel. As I go around the barrel, I may start trotting to the right and then pick out the right barrel and go around it. We go through these kind of exercises until I get some response from the horse in learning to pick up the shoulder and upper body. I do that along with the poles at the same time.” After warming up the horse, Burger works on the poles. She trots her horse down the right side of the pole pattern, using the same basics she will on the barrels. “I pick the horse’s inside or left shoulder up, maybe giving them a little bump if they need it, so they have a pocket or some room to make the turn. When we get around that turn, we want to come off of the first pole tight. Then, as soon as we get by that first turn, I pick up the opposite rein and move the horse's shoulder up and over to the right so when we get to the next pole I can just switch hands, pick him up, and move that shoulder off to the left.” Burger stresses the importance of picking up the rein on the inside shoulder immediately after each pole. “You need to make them leave room so that you set yourself up for the next shot,” she explains. “You have to make sure you’ve got your pocket coming into a turn because you need to have room for the horse to drop his shoulder for a smooth turn. When you do that, you can come off of that pole or barrel tight so you can set yourself up for the next pole or barrel in the same manner.” Pole work is never done faster than a trot. “There are a lot of lead changes between the poles, and frequent lead changes will shorten the stride a little bit when you run the poles,” Burger explains. “Horses use their stride a bit more aggressively in the barrel pattern than in the poles because of the lead changes, so I don’t season them on the poles.” Next, Burger moves to the barrels. At first, she may use two hands to steady the horse as it comes to the barrel pattern. “I keep their nose tipped in the direction they’re going when we take off,” she says, “so if your horse is headed straight through the alleyway, you like to have their nose slightly tipped to the right (because they’re going to turn right) and have their inside or right shoulder up.” As Burger approaches the barrel she cues the horse to get ready to turn. "I say ‘whoa’, check them with my inside rein by pulling back slightly, give them a little bump with that rein to cue them to drop their speed and get ready to turn. See GYMKHANA, page 11

While running barrels in good form is part of the winning equation, running them at the right speed is the other part. “When I train a young horse, I go with what the horse tells me he can handle,” says Burger. “If the horse has got a lot of speed and he’s a little too anxious, I work slower until they relax and then gradually pick up speed. On a quieter horse, I stretch them out.” Her cues for slowing or increasing speed are just the basics, she says: Heels for urging a horse on, hands and a “whoa” for asking them to slow down. “I just keep progressively working with them until I get them where I want them.” Once the horse understands its cues and is running pretty well, Burger prefers to season the horse at a gallop or fast lope at different arenas. “I really like to pick up my speed away from home. It seems to cause less
Body position When working poles and barrels, the rider should be balanced a little bit forward. “You want to keep up over the shoulders so you can control your body along with the horse,” Burger states. “If your body is up too straight or behind, when you go around a barrel your body weight will be to the outside or the back. When that happens, your hands are not free to control the horse, you’ll be into their mouth, and the horse can’t get coordinated. He may get confused.” Your seat position depends on your horse. Explains Burger, “Some horses rim a barrel so tight that if you don’t keep your weight a little more into the center of the horse, they’ll get too close. Then there are horses that if you don’t get down to the inside, they’ll bow out.” Leg cues are used only in training, with the goal of transferring those cues to your hands. “When I want the horse to bend in the middle, I’ll use my inside leg and bump him with my heel in the middle,” says Burger. “It does take some time for a horse to learn this, which comes from the basics of pole bending and trotting barrels. I want to transfer those leg cues to my hands, when I have the horse in the middle of training. I will also use my inside rein to cue him for the turn. Eventually I want to eliminate all the leg pressures and simplify it down to just a hand cue or a bump or a whoa. That cue will vary from horse to horse, and when you get in sync with your horse, you’ll know which cue is the best. Some horses don’t want to be touched, other horses have to be touched.

For horses that have a lot of speed, if they run really hard, when I come in I sometimes may give them a twohanded set and a backwards pull on the rein to slow the hind end down a little bit. “When I get behind each barrel, I take an inside rein so when I pull the rein I've got the horse's nose still tucked when we’re coming around the barrel. “Likewise when you’re going to the second barrel, you switch hands from right to left. At that time you should have your hand to the left of the inside rein so you can give that same arc coming around the barrel. You'll have that nose tucked to the left so that you’ll have a little pull on the inside with your rein.” Keeping your hand on the inside or your rein when coming in around the barrels is important. Warns Burger, “If your hand is in the middle or the outside, your horse will have a tendency to pull more on the outside rein, have his head tipped the other way, not watching where he's going, and won't have his shoulder up.”
problems,” she states. “Each time you take them away from home, do slow work, maybe a trot and a canter, and increase your speed.” Unless the horse is making constant mistakes, getting sloppy, or is out of sync with the rider, Burger doesn’t do hard runs at home, instead confining practice runs to reinforcing the basics. “I do some hard runs at home, but very little when I get the horse to the point where I want him. If they’re working good away from home, I usually don’t work them hard at home. I ride them every day, putting them through the basics. But if a horse makes a mistake away from home two or three times in a row, then I may go to the barrel pattern and make that practice hard run and see if we can’t work it out and figure out where the problem is.” Marcia King is an awardwinning writer specializing in equine, and veterinary topics.

While practicing in the ring, you ask your horse to skirt around a horse that stopped in front of you. You squeeze your leg against him, but he continues walking forward, now a little faster. Later, when you’re riding on the trail or perhaps through the pasture, and you want your horse to avoid stepping in the mud that lies up ahead. You apply a little pressure with one leg to move him over a bit, but your horse ignores you and just ploughs ahead
through the mud, anyway. This animal either doesn’t understand what you’re asking, or doesn’t care, and that means you have a problem! Even a rider with just basic horsemanship skills knows the importance of leg yielding. Whether it’s to move a horse over to avoid sloppy footing or the underlying part of a cue for a particular maneuver at show, leg yields are the deepest part of every horse’s training foundation. Without a proper response to a leg yield, you're not riding the horse, you’re just along for the ride.

For Every Application On Your Property.
Leg yields laid open At its most basic concept, a leg yield is pressure applied by the rider ’s leg to the one side of the horse in order to move the horse over laterally while still moving forward, thus creating a forward diagonal movement. But leg yields have a purpose beyond just creating a diagonal movement for the fun of it. “Leg yields aid in creating a more supple and maneuverable horse,” explains Jackie Krshka, a world champion reining and western riding competitor and trainer. “Leg yields allow you to advance the training program of the horse. In addition, leg yields are a useful tool in the show ring to subtly correct a misalignment of your horse, therefore preventing a major error.” In the training program, Jackie says, leg yields are “an element lateral exercise preferably performed at either the walk or trot along the long side of the arena, or across the diagonal of the ring, with the horse positioned at no more than a 45 degree angle from the direction in which it is moving.” A horse who is properly
executing a leg yield in its refined state should have its head and neck slightly bent away from the direction of travel, with its body from withers to tail remaining almost parallel to the rail, says Jackie. “The forehand should slightly precede the haunches. At a trot, the horse maintains a two-beat sequence, with the left foreleg and right hind leg striking together, followed by the right foreleg and left hind leg.”
Receiving a proper response To properly leg yield, a horse must first know how to move away from leg pressure and accept moving forward into the bit without much resistance. To teach a horse to give to leg pressure, or to reschool a horse that doesn’t respond properly to leg pressure, you should be working at walk or trot and then apply leg pressure to one side of the horse, Jackie states. “Both your hand and leg are used together. Ask the horse to move in the direction of a rein or to the indirect rein by applying leg pressure. If you get no reaction, then begin to insist with a little more pressure and drive through your leg so that you put your horse into a position where he must forward off of your leg. Once they do, you’ve got to release and reward them. With repetition, your horse will figure out that when you pick up the rein and apply pressure with your leg, they’re to respond, and when they respond, you’re going to reward.” Jackie says if your horse doesn’t move at first, then insist that it does by applying more leg pressure. Don’t use the rein to haul your horse in the direction you want to travel; that's not what leg yielding is all about! In fact, you want to keep contact with the mouth as soft as possible. Ask (or insist) the horse move into the direction of a rein or indirect rein with your leg. “You develop a soft mouth through the hand and leg working together,” reminds Jackie. Once the horse knows how to give to pressure, he’s ready to learn proper leg yielding. “To perform a leg yield across the diagonal of the arena, your aids will be the right indirect rein, right leg behind the girth, and left leg at the girth,” says Jackie. (This example is when moving from the right side of the arena to the left side.) “You should be seated in the center of your saddle. In English saddles, you have a bit of more forward seat, but in western, use more of a drive seat. You want to drive the horse with your seat and legs. The horse’s body should remain straight during this movement, except for a slight bend at the poll away from the direction of travel.” In this example, that means the poll should be slightly bent toward the right. “The right hand bends the horse only to where the bulge of its right eye can be seen,” Jackie continues, “while your left hand restricts the animal from rushing. Both hands are shifted slightly to the left to reinforce the right leg as it drives See YIELD SIGNS, page 13

Yield signs from page 12 the horse to the proper direction of travel. “To keep the horse’s body from becoming bent from withers to tail, the rider ’s right leg much be positioned behind the girth. Pressure exerted by your right leg creates the lateral movement in the haunches, while the at-the-girth position of the left leg prevents the horse from bowing its barrel toward the direction of travel and helps to maintain impulsion. As in all lateral movements, pressure from each of your legs changes as necessary to maintain the proper position and impulsion.”
Corrections If your horse does not respond correctly when you ask for the leg yield, it may be that your horse does not fully understand what you're asking. Says Jackie, “Very often not enough time has been spent on the fundamentals leading up to this exercise. The horse may not understand the meaning of leg pressure or developed a responsive and soft mouth.” If this is the case, reschool your horse in giving to leg pressure. “Go back to the basics and assess the areas that need more development before trying a more advanced exercise,” Jackie suggests. If your horse responds to your cues, but does not carry himself correctly, the problem may be in the way you are riding him. “Sometimes the rider allows a horse to become overly bent,” Jackie notes. “Therefore, the horse is not tracking in the correct pattern. Or, the rider may be allowing the horse to remain stiff in the barrel, again displacing the horse’s body.” In either case, have a trainer or knowledgeable friend observe the way you are placing your legs and carrying your reins to see if you correctly positioned and offering the right cues. Sometimes, a horse may not move or respond properly
when asked to yield because of a subtle or underlying lameness. This is not so easy to detect. Says Jackie, “If you continue to apply the basic applications to the horse and he seems intelligent and somewhat athletically capable of what you’re asking, and you don’t get the results you want, certainly you have to consider that there could be an underlying cause, especially if you're getting that response in one direction and not getting in the other direction. An underlying soreness that can develop into a lameness is a possibility. You can have a veterinarian evaluate that possibility; your horse may have a misalignment in the spinal area. I have horses that have had displaced vertebra.” But don’t assume that because your horse isn’t performing well, it’s automatically a subtle lameness problem and not rider error or lack of schooling. “People take the possibility of an underlying lameness and go way off in left field and use that as a crutch,” Jackie warns. One sign that might hint at physical problems include a horse that has been working well in both directions, but now is less responsive going in a particular direction. Another clue, says Jackie, is if the horse “is very soft in his mouth and very responsive to your leg when you are not working on the leg yield, but when you put him in a more strenuous exercise, you notice more resistance than there should be. In cases like these, look for an underlying cause.”
Patience When schooling or reschooling a horse to leg yield properly, don’t expect quick results. “Don’t get in a hurry,” says Jackie. “This is an exercise that takes time and patience on behalf of the rider. Do not force the horse, just continue to make adjustments in your hand and leg positions to continue to imply the path you desire the horse to take.” Marcia King is an award-winning writer specializing in equine, pet, and veterinary topics.

Barn, stall maintenance By Heather Smith Thomas
Make Your Dream A Reality… With Your Own Custom Amish Horse Barn. • Custom built horse barns & riding arenas • All Style Rooflines Available Make a stable investment by buying a #1 Amish quality horse barn at the Carriage Shed ENGINEERED FOR PROPER WIND AND SNOW LOADS
No matter what type of barn you have, there is always maintenance you need to perform in order to keep the barn safe and comfortable for your horses. Dave Preston, a longtime horse owner and contractor living in Central Kentucky, has been involved in a number of barn building projects, including some $750,000 Thoroughbred barns near Lexington, as well as smaller barns for his family and friends. “My big issues, whether it’s a new barn or makeover for an existing barn, are drainage and ventilation,” Preston says. These important factors play a role in health issues for horses. Any building can be created or improved to satisfactorily accommodate adequate drainage and ventilation. You need to provide drainage away from the building on at least a one- to six-degree slope, and you need to get good nondirect ventilation. “Anything beyond these two factors to make it as safe as possible for horses is just common sense,” Preston adds. “For example, I’ve poured concrete aisles and used exposed aggregate to give good traction. When finishing it, just brush and
wash it enough to expose the stone to make a rough, nonslip surface. If it's a masonry barn, use bullnose (rounded) block on all corners so there are no sharp corners a horse could hang himself on. Make sure all hangers and door hardware, etc., lie flush. Try not to have horizontal surfaces and ledges that cribbers can get hold of.”
The Little Things Often it’s little things that make big differences. “The hooks you hang buckets from in a stall need to be recessed or the kind with a ring on them so the horse can't brush against the hook and hurt himself,” Preston says. “There are many safety-minded products available; you can find them on the Internet and catalog markets.” A key factor in safety and comfort is regular maintenance. Bob Coleman, PhD, a horse extension specialist from the University of Kentucky, says this is often not a primary consideration, but it’s something horse owners and managers always need to be thinking about. “When doing renovations, look for materials that will be maintenance-free or last a long time,” he states. “It may be more expensive (for the initial outlay), but we often

don’t think in terms of the longevity of a door, stall panel, or equipment we'll be using in the stall and the repair or replacement costs. “We have to spend money wisely and not overspend, but also need to look at the maintenance on down the road,” he continues. “Can I paint it every few years rather than every year? All too often we’re saving money today, but it will cost us more tomorrow.” For long-lasting, maintenance-free barn features, choose galvanized or stainless steel products. “Corrosion is always a problem,” says Preston. “If something rusts, it can create a sharp, rough surface that might injure a horse.” When building or repairing and remodeling a barn, available materials, such as steel versus masonry versus wood, have pros and cons. “Wood is generally the least expensive, but the highest maintenance,” explains Preston. “Masonry is generally the most expensive and the lowest maintenance, and steel is somewhere in between. But you need to line steel siding with wood or something else that’s safer for the horse. You never want a stall with just sheet metal walls.” That’s because a horse could kick through the metal and injure himself. “If you line (metal buildings) with wood, it must be heavy enough that when it’s kicked, it won’t splinter. We are lucky here to have rough sawn oak and other hardwoods available. If you use pine, fir, or some of the other soft woods, you need at least 1½-inch thickness, minimum, and for pine that's probably not thick enough.” The main thing is to be resourceful, using local materials (less expensive than something that must be hauled from far away). “There are always geographical differences on what’s available, but also think about what would be safe for horses, and how much maintenance will be required,” Preston states.
Inspect Regularly Preston advises regular maintenance inspections. “Police your barn on a regular basis. Nails and screws work loose. Soon the head is sticking out a quarter inch. If you check these and pound them back in, they’ll be good for another year or so. “In my own barn (originally an old tobacco barn), I have to go through every five years and replace about 10% of the boards on the exterior, and completely repaint the barn. It’s a wood structure, and five years is about all you can get from a paint job. Taking care of horses is a lot of work, and taking care of the buildings is another whole subset of work.”

Bridge bash from page 1 With all of the detailed event plans so far along, the co-chairs of the LCBC felt it was their responsibility to make a go/no-go decision. “To continue planning, committing resources and booking vendors and performers without a confirmed opening date—or for that matter, a functioning bridge— we felt it was unfair to ask our tireless volunteers to continue planning a celebration that might not happen this fall,” said Lorraine Franklin, LCBC Co-Chair. “Although the dates of the celebration have changed, the momentum will continue to build through the fall and winter and we look forward to working with everyone to produce a great event,” Franklin added. “We now have more time to dedicate to fundraising and planning for a truly Grand Celebration,” Hennessy said. During the next eight months, the LCBC will continue to accept donations, sign-up vendors and performers and recruit volunteers.
They also encourage the communities along the Lake Champlain corridor to become involved as communities did for the opening of the first Lake Champlain Bridge in 1929. Community involvement could be in the forms of building a float for the parade, encouraging schools and organizations to participate and welcoming guests and visitors back to the region. For more information regarding the Grand Celebration, visit LCBC’s website at www.champlainbridgecommunity.org, contact email@example.com or call (802) 759-2000. For information regarding construction updates, visit https://www.nysdot.gov/lakech amplainbridge/construction or contact NYSDOT Regional Public Information Officer Carol Breen at 518-388-0342.
Arch goes up The public will be able to watch the arch lift, but some marine and vehicle traffic restrictions will be in place. When the span is completely assembled at its construction site on
Valez Marine, the structure was to be floated down Lake Champlain to the bridge site, where it was to be lifted and fitted into place. The float was to take four hours to complete and the lift was expected to last eight hours. NYSDOT expected the process to begin at sunrise with work extending into the early evening that same day. However, the lift could be delayed due to high winds or lightning. The main navigational channel through the center span was to be closed for approximately 48 hours as the arch is floated into position, lifted into place and secured. Marine traffic would be directed through an alternative navigational channel during this time period. Those interested in viewing the process on the New York side could do so at the Department of Environmental Conservation campground, Crown Point State Historic Site and Essex County Visitors Center. A definite date for the float and lift was to be set as assembly of the arch nears completion. That date had not been set as of press time.
Martin Harris from page 4 It’s been widely known that Vermont’s employment situation is also better than elsewhere which (in your Humble Scribe’s opinion) can be traced back to a young-adult-cohort out-migration situation,which some in the Gentry-Left applaud while others deplore. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports on recent widespread unemployment growth,
too: US average, 9.2 percent, Vermont average, 5.5 percent. No space here for the philosophical aspects of a state seeking to be dependent on income-flows from wealth created earlier and elsewhere, from which a current generation can be supported without effort, in a passive-income society which must always be, by definition, not self-sufficient and not self-sustainable. You decide. Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.
