MIDDLEBURY — Due to the extensive damage caused by Hurricane Ir ene, the Green Mountain National Forest (GMNF) was closed temporarily on Sept. 1. Under the authority of Secretary of Agricultur e’s Regulations, Colleen Madrid, forest supervisor for the Green Mountain National Forest, issued an order to close the GMNF . The or der prohibits the public from going into or being on any part of the Gr een Mountain National For est, until fur ther notice. Timed for the Labor Day weekend, the U.S. For est Service c ited p ublic h ealth and safety is of utmost concern. “We are working diligently to assess conditions across the Forest and moving to recovery to get the Forest open as safely and quickly as we can,” said Madrid. Forest Service chain-saw crews will be working through the holiday weekend to clear roads and trails and other crews will continue to assess the condition of bridges and other facilities that have been impacted by the recent storm. The GMNF asks that the public cancel forest visits until damage has been assessed, potential hazar ds have been addr essed, and the closur e or der has been withdrawn.

Leicester residents watch rising water Leicester Jct. in path of Otter Creek torrent

By Lou Varricchio LEICESTER JUNCTION — Ray Lalumiere, emergency manager for the Town Of Leicester, has a lot on his mind this week. Lalumier e has the task of monitoring the town’s latest crisis—the rising water of the swollen, north flowing Otter Cre ek. For 20 years, Lalumiere has faithfully and cautiously executed his volunteer civic tasks—making sure Leicester r esidents and assets ar e protected from harm’s way. “In all my time as emer gency manager, there’s been nothing like Irene,” he said. At Leicester Junction, wher e the Otter Cr eek cr osses the Leicester Whiting Road and a vital portion of Vermont Railway track, r esidents are watching an increasing amount of water spill over the ro ad and rise to reach their homes. A small, fenced-in propane tank farm is located behind the historic Leicester Depot. The depot itself is now completely surr ounded by flood water.

A day we’ll never forget, part 1


here just aren’t many words that will help comfort those who experienced the devastation delivered to Vermont by the tropical storm remnants of Hurricane Irene Aug. 28. You can split hairs and debate the scientific terms: hurricane versus tropical storm, but it really doesn’t matter to flood victims. No matter what you slug Ir ene, she was a vicious interloper. No one alive in Vermont today has experienced anything like Aug. 28, 201 1. For the generation that survived the Gr eat Flood of 1927 and the Hurricane of 1938 in Vermont, last week’s destr uction would have looked familiar. Thankfully, unlike the 1927 disaster, the 2011 disaster resulted in far fewer deaths. Still, a new generation must find its way through, understanding how just a few hours of torrential rain could have altered lives and townscapes forever. Surveying the destr uction, even as a news reporter, has not been easy. Access to many l ocales h as b een r estricted d ue t o safety issues. Still, the damage in central and southern V ermont has been so widespread that it doesn’t take much to get an upclose look at it. The beautiful Town of Brandon was es-

pecially har d hit by the flooding of the Neshobe River. A wall of muddy water bre ached the upper falls downtown and damaged many buildings, perhaps mortally. At least two lar ge craters, cr eated by high velocity river water , ate away the roadway from above and below. Our hearts go out to all the residents of Brandon, Rutland, Ludlow, Killington, Mt. Holly and elsewhere. If we can help in anyway, contact this editor and we will help get the word out. While examining the rising Otter Cr eek at Leicester Junction Aug. 31, I was struck by sincer e wor ds spoken by r esident Sandy Cram. “I think Vermonters should pat themselves on the back this week,” Cram said. “It’s amazing how many people are doing things to help their neighbors. I am very proud to be a Vermonter.” It’s people like Sandy Cram and others who will help r ebuild towns damaged by tropical storm Ir ene. It will take money , hard work and volunteerism. Continued next week. Lou Varricchio

How politicians choose on choice


ithin the last month or so, two well-known political figures in Vermont have taken opposing stands on the school-choice question. That’s the one which focuses on the concept that parents who don’t like the geography-of-residence-based public school assignment for their childr en might be fr ee to find a better (and similarly-free) seat for their upwardly-mobile (that’s education-, not social-wise) student in a school beyond the town or supervisory union official enrollment area. Technically, the “choice” ar gument (for schools, not births) extends beyond the inventory of public schools, including charters, which do better because they’re less intensively-regulated than the traditional Horace-Mann-designed K-12 units, to include private academies, both secular and r eligious, where the State might use its taxpayers’ money to pay tuition based on the per pupil amount it would have spent in its own schools. That’s the V oucher Dispute. In this case, however, the ‘famous ones’ have mutually agreed to disagree solely on the availability (or not) of not-in-the-district public schools only, a flexible phrase which historically has included the semi-private academies like Burr & Burton in Manchester and excluded the heresy of funding-following-students to such fully private (and well-enrolled) competitors, long-standing and recent, as the six in Addison County. The pr o-choice famous one r evealed his preference in early August to State print media, which duly reported the instant opposition o f t he S tate t eacher ’s u nion, t he Vermont NEA. Specifically , said Gov . Peter Shumlin, he would “urge lawmakers to adopt legislation guaranteeing universal public school choice”. Mor e r ecently, the Guv became (more temporarily?) famous for his Vermont Yankee fish story , the one in which he first announced he wouldn’t eat a supposedly radioactive fish caught eight miles upstream from the officially-despised Entergy-owned nuclear power plant, and then announced his pro-choice stand on the fishy question: others could eat or not, as

they chose. The Guv was clear on keeping the publicschool monopoly intact: “where you lose me is where you get into par ochial and private schools in school choice”, he opined. Decoded, that means: No Vouchers. The anti-choice famous one r evealed his pr eference in late June to State print media, in an op-ed headlined “Be W ary of Economists Bearing Education Reforms” and deriding the statistical finding that public schools subjected to competition from parent-selected alternatives suddenly find ways to raise their own students’ achievement scor es. Specifically, wrote retired public-school superintendent William Mathis in paragraphs dismissing achievement-testing as “measuremyopia” and “regressionia”, “…test scores ar e only a small part of schools…” and “…the richness, of what education is and should be, is unseen…” a line which parallels a two-decade-old Rutland Herald editorial dismissing the notion that mer e taxpayers could pr esume to attempt to measure the “inef fable” education pr ocess for actual achievement results. Less r ecently, the ex-super became (less temporarily?) famous for his involvement in the lawsuit-against-the-feds over its almostall-students-Proficient-by-2014 r equirement, the lawsuit ar guing that public schools had no obligation to educate any particular per centage of students to Pr oficiency, that any su ch demand was an u nfunded federal mandate, but that public schools could do it if they got a lot mor e money from taxpayers. Like the Guv , the ex-Super was clear on keeping the public school monopoly intact, specifically by pr eventing school-performance evaluation by par ents who, if they could compar e, might choose to put their kids in other-than-designated schools. He’s opposed to any pr ocess wher e even a supposedly monopoly-service-ar ea public school might lose customer share to one the next town over, and perhaps even go bankrupt (a little Joseph Schumpeter cre ative-destruction-in-pursuit-of-heightened-productivity lingo, ther e) because the par ent-preferred school does a better job. see MARTIN HARRIS, page 11

Public should call 211 to report damage to homes MONTPELIER — Those who suf fered damage to their homes during the Aug. 28 floods should call 211 to report that damage. Those reports will be forwarded to FEMA to assist in its damage assessment to determine if Vermont qualifies for grants to homeowners. Homeowners can begin making repairs to their homes as soon as they are able. Please take photos of your damage and keep all receipts for work performed. You should also keep any hotel receipts or any other housing expenses incurr ed while you wer e displaced.

Leicester from page 1 “The Aug. 28 tropical deluge was the record for the Otter Cr eek as measur ed at Center Rutland,” said Lalumiere. “It was a record 17.21 feet. Befor e Aug. 28, the record at Center Rutland was the Hurricane in 1938 at 13.4 feet.” Hurricanes wer e not named prior to 1950. Just as in 1938, the 201 1 flood cr est will take a few days to r each Leicester as it passes—like a slow moving

FEMA inspectors are out in the field now assessing damage to homes. However, if you have not called 211 it is not too late, V ermont is early in the r elief pr ocess and you have time to report your damage. 211 is a reporting point only and new contact information will be provided to register once a declaration has been made. The 21 1 system is now operating with a more call takers, if you get voice mail please leave a message and it will be r eturned in due course. You can call 51 1 or go to for links to local and

bulge—on its way to Middlebury, Vergennes and Lake Champlain. “The peak of the flood water of 1938 took several days to reach low-lying Leicester Junction. It cover ed the depot and made a mess. I believe it will make the same mess,” Lalumiere said. Even with the latest Otter Creek flood measur ement data printout in hand, Lalumiere has taken some goodhumored jabbing fr om fellow town of ficial, Arlan Pigeon, highway for eman, with a smile.

“Well, I don’t think the flood water will r each as high as Ray fears,” Pigeon said, ”but I know that he has to be very safety minded and he also has a big re sponsibility in town. Who knows? The creek did rise 8-10 inches just since last night. But I think the fields along her e can take a lot more water.” Lalumiere explained why he thinks the coming cr est could be significant. “There ar e two major Otter Cr eek ‘choke points’ between the falls at Center Rutland and her e at Leices-

state road closures. These maps are updated as soon as possible but r epairs ar e constantly evolving so please be patient as the information could be out dated at any time. All Vermont towns are now accessible by road. Roads are extremely rough so the public is asked to not visit flooded areas unless absolutely necessary. Excess traffic will make permanent er pairs take much longer. Vermont Emergency Management will operate its Emergency Operations Center at the FEMA offices in Burlington at least until the end of the week.

ter Junction—they are located at Pr octor Falls and at a narrow ar ea located behind Otter V alley Union High School in Brandon. “The high water doesn’t come immediately down here as most people think,” he said. “This is a huge volume of water—mor e than four feet higher than the 1938 flood. It’s fluid, it speeds up, slows down, backs up in choke points— which ar e kind of like big soup bowls—then gains velocity again and plows on ahead.”

from page 1 Following Ir ene’s devastation in V ermont, state r esidents traveled to W ashington to pr otest the pipeline's appr oval, said McKibben. The tar sands deposit in Canada is the second-lar gest deposit of oil on the planet, and burning its resources will heavily damage the climate by accelerating global warming, said McKibben. The pipeline is also pr ojected to have a more direct impact when it's built and moving oil. Some of the planned 1,71 1-mile pipeline will pass over a Nebraska aquifer that will be only 10 feet below the oil-sluicing conduit. “That’s just not commonsensical; it’s not what a reasonable person would do,” McKibben said. The U.S. Department of State released its Final Environmental Impact Statement Aug. 26. According to the report’s executive summary, “In spite of the safety measur es … spills ar e likely to occur during operation over the lifetime of the project.” Another part of the pipeline, simply called Keystone, opened in 2010 and has had 14 leaks since. Seven of the leaks wer e less than 10 gallons, four more were 100 gallons or less, two wer e between 400 and 500 gallons and the biggest spilled mor e than 21,000 gallons. “It depends on whether you think spills are bad or not,” said McKibben. “If you live there, they'r e obviously bad. If you'r e a businessman who lives hundr eds or thousands of miles away , what the hell do you care?” Keystone has estimated spills for the XL pipeline at 0.22 per year, while the DoS has estimated a much higher rate of spills, at around 1.78 to 2.51 annually. The maximum spill estimated could come in at 2.8 million gallons, according to Keystone estimates. McKibben said that it’s true that if we want to keep on burning oil in SUVs, then yes, we’ll need to incr ease capacity. But he doesn’t agree that a consumptiveAmerica is the right future.

Lalumiere expected the crest of the Aug. 28 floodwater to r each Leicester Junction late Sunday, Sept. 4, and into Monday , Sept. 5—the Labor Day holiday. “Because water is a fluid, it behaves dif ferently fr om most things,” Lalumier e said. “Even at normals times, a river like the Otter Cr eek is slightly higher in the center and lower on the edges. That’s because of the physical dynamics of water . This weekend there will be a bigger center bulge in the creek


KILLINGTON — Killington’s K-1 Base Lodge and Superstar Pub are in r uins after Tropical Storm Ir ene’s violent rain undermined the ground around and below the popular recreational and dining establishment. Half of the lodge, including the pub, collapsed into a yawning mini gorge below it when a normally quiet alpine bro ok was transformed into a raging torrent Aug. 28. Nearby, the historic 19th century Killington Farmstead and church at River Road was pushed of their foundations by the high velocity of floodwater. The structures were washed downhill. River Road itself has vanished. Bill Bauer, Killington Base Lodge manager , told r eporters that “It’s devastation like we’ve never seen. I was speechless.” The main access to Killington, U.S. Route 4, was washed away below the r esort ar ea. State highway cr ews constr ucted a temporary emer gency bypass to permit certain vehicles up Killington Mountain. The Rutland-Killington ar ea has seen the worst storm destr uction in a century. When asked if Killington will return to normal by the beginning of this year ’s ski season, Bauer said, “We’re hopeful.”


as t he c rest p asses t hrough here,” he said. Watching the rising Otter Creek Aug. 31 wer e several local residents. The neighbors wer e evacuated fr om appr oximately 30 low-lying homes in the Junction ar ea. The homes, now surr ounded by the flooding Otter Cr eek, stand on Bridal Path Lane, the Leicester-Whiting Road, and dead-end Stove Pipe Lane. Crystal Sears who lives on Stove Pipe Lane evacuated Aug. 30. “I got out because I have to work. I could get back and forth for a day or so with the town’s help—Arlan is giving r esidents a lift on the town’s big payloader tractor to let us keep an eye on things, but at some point this weekend he pr obably can’t keep doing this.” Kenny and Carrie Lussier live on Stove Pipe Lane, too. The young couple, a long with their sons Jacob, 6, and Dylan, 10, stood at the water ’s edge wandering if the flood would r each their house. “I think we’ll be fine,” Kenny Lussier said. “My Ford Mustang is in the driveway, so I am not worried.” Sandy Cram, a resident of nearby Cram Road, visited with her Junction neighbors to see if they needed anything. “I think Vermonters should pat themselves on the back this week,” Cram said. “It’s amazing how many people ar e doing things to help their neighbors. “Arlen Pigeon is doing a tremendous job fr o r esidents. He’s taking time out of his day to shuttle r esidents in and out of her e on the tractor while he still can. Leicester r eally is a great town to live in. It’s a r eal community. This week, I am very proud to be a Vermonter,” she said.

Cruises to re-create ‘Golden Age’ on lake By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — When it comes to cr uising on Lake Champlain aboard the classic M.V. Carillon, via Larrabee’s Point, Vt., it’s an ideal time for gentlemen todon their straw boaters and for ladies to unfurl their parasols. Two upcoming Lake Champlain cruises aboard the Carillon, sponsored by the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury , will help recreate the “Golden Age” of boating on Lake Champlain plus provide mini onboard courses in lake history. The museum will conduct one mor e Twilight History Cruise this summer—Thursday, Thursday, Sept. 15—on historic southern Lake Champlain. According to Mary Manley of the Sheldon Museum, the first cruise will featur e Giovanna Peebles, Vermont's state archeologist. “She will discuss the ar cheology of Lake Champlain,” Manley said. “Giovanna has been looking at Lake Champlain and its shorelands through her lens as Vermont state archeologist since 1976. She has worked on every facet of Vermont history thr ough those decades, fr om underwater archeology to Native American history, fr om agricultural history to industrial history to archeological collections.” Manley said the September cruise will feature Scott Newman of the Vermont Agency of Transportation. He will conduct a tour of the 2011 Lake Champlain Bridge construction

Vermont, New York to celebrate Festival of Nations By Andy Flynn ORWELL, VT . — The Lake Champlain Bridge constr uction continues to re-shape the annual Festival of Nations, planned for Sept. 16-18 on the V ermont and New York sides of the lake. With the October bridge celebration postponed until May , Crown Point State Historic Site Manager Tom Hughes has been scrambling to solidify the Festival of Nations schedule, he said. Specifics wer e not available by press time. Call (518) 597-4666 for more information. The event is traditionally cosponsored by the Cr own Point State Historic Site in New York and the Chimney Point State Historic Site in V ermont. The bridge constr uction, however, has for ced the temporary closing of Chimney Point, and the Festival of Nations events in Vermont will be held at the

Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell for the second year in a row. Elsa Gilbertson, r egional historic site administrator for the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation, expects that the Festival of Nations will r eturn to Chimney Point in 2012. In the meantime, Mount Independence will be hosting the 16th Annual Northeast Open Atlatl Champions hip Sept. 1718 as part of the Festival of Nations. The site and access r oads were not damaged by T ropical Storm Irene on Aug. 28, and the event will go on as planned. An “atlatl” is a ancient spearthrower that pr edates the bow and arrow, and the atlatl championship was designed to fit in with the Festival of Nations theme of celebrating the heritage of nations that left a deep imprint on the region: Canada, France, Gr eat Britain, Native American tribes and the United

States. “We have this shar ed history,” Gilbertson said, referring to Vermont and New York co-hosting the event. “In the early history, the states don’t matter, and we ar e celebrating this shar ed history by having the festival.” The Champlain V alley is known for its French and Indian War and Revolutionary W ar reenactments at places like Fort Ticonderoga and Cr own Point in New York and Hubbar dton Battlefield State Historic Site and Mount Independence in Vermont. The atlatl championship gives residents and visitors another opportunity to participate in and witness a similar kind of history-based event and learn about local heritage. “In a way , this is a r e-enactment of times way befor e the bow and arr ow,” Gilbertson said. “It’s a way to r each the past and make it come alive today.”

ORWELL, VT. — The 16th Annual Northeast Open Atlatl Championship begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 and 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 18 at Mount Independence. The competition is based on the ancient hunting technique of using an atlatl (spear thrower). Atlatlists of all skill levels are welcome. The event, co-sponsored by the Vermont Archaeological Society, is one of the highlights of Septemberʼs Vermont Archeology Month. The main competition is on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Contestants test their prowess in using the atlatl to “hunt” mammoth, bison, and other “wild” game targets, shoot at modern day bulls-eyes in the International Standards Accuracy Competition (ISAC), and compete in a distance challenge. Call (802) 759-2412 for an atlatl championship registration form or visit Competitor fee is $5 for each day. An atlatl-making workshop ($65 fee) will be held Sept. 16 from noon to 5 p.m. Pre-registration (802-759-2412) for the workshop is required. The Vermont Archaeological Society is offering a day long flint-knapping workshop both days, and on Saturday a hands-on demonstration of Northeastern pre-contact pottery making. To sign up for either of these, call 802-644-5675. On both Saturday and Sunday there will be showings of the film, “Champlain: The Lake Between,” at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. Sunday, starting at 10 a.m., is a smaller International Standards Accuracy Competition. Afterward, at about 11:45 a.m., is a master coaching class offered by champion atlatlists for children and interested adults. Also starting at 10 a.m. are the flint-knapping and Woodland pottery workshops. Mount Independence is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for each day, including the museum and trails, is $5 for adults and free for children under 15. Call (802) 759-2412.

chose a dif ferent school for their kids. Her findings pr ovoked the predictable public-educator reaction and six years later, after her study methodology and findings couldn’t be found incorrect, she was de-fenestrated at Harvard anyway and moved to Stanfor d to continue her studies, some with Eric Hanushek. He’s the former University of Rochester economics pr ofessor who similarly committed her esy in his studies finding that r educing class size raised per -pupil costs but not student achievement, provoked a similar educrat r eaction, couldn’t be pr oven wr ong, was similarly defenestrated, and similarly fled to Stanford. Of even mor e inter est to your Humble Scribe is the famous-person-2 comment putting “…intelligence and virtue…the safeguar ding of liberty…the pr eservation of good government… and the prevention of vice…” ahead of testable reading and counting skills in graded schools, suggesting thereby that the K-12 school are really miniature universities for thoughtful intellectuals who happen to be short and young, who should be learning to be the future philosopher-kings of a Pr ogressive society, and not wasting their time and talent on memorizing the 36 symbols of r eading and counting. More on this public-educator campaign for the r eplacement-of-Horace-Mann-and-Bismarck with Plato-and-Aristotle next week.

from page 4 Whether school choice is “on the right side of history” (a little w e’re-smarter-than-you P rogressive l ingo, t here) r emains to be seen; after all, non-public school choice enjoyed deeper market penetration in the ‘50’s than it does today . But now, when such governmental behemoths as NYC embrace school choice (r ead the glowing account on the Education Week website) although only for the Shumlin-pr eferred public alternatives, i ncluding charters and excludi ng, as described in this column r ecently, the non-public options embraced in Douglas County, Colo., maybe the trend is, indeed, visible and welcome. Up to now, its visibility has been a hazard. Consider, for examine, the Caroline Hoxby story. She was the Harvar d economics-pr ofessor/researcher (did I mention that famous-person-two is dismissive-wary- of economists who presume to intrude onto the private turf of public education?) who, in 2001, published a study entitled “The Economics of School Choice.” It summarizes thus: she found that students in districts where multiple school selection options wer e available all scored better on achievement tests than in districts where a more typical no-choice assignment system pr evailed. That was irr espective of whether the students’ par ents actually

You also feel like you’r e representing our entir e state, which adds difficulty. So no, that gig ain’t a cake walk.And I know that’s part of Mr . Shumlin’s job and he wanted to be governor, but still, well, I think he did a good job. Being a so-called halfassed media guy myself, I do have one note for Mr. Shumlin and his handlers. During the interview the governor said, “Vermonters have been whacked, we’ve been whacked hard,” at least two, maybe thr ee separate times. During one of the thr ee times, he repeated the line. We want to try and keep people away fr om Vermont, governor. But if you keep saying us Vermonters are up here being whacked har d, everyone will want to move here.

ed to downed tr ees and loss of power , the Otter Cr eek continued to rise after the Aug. 28 storm, thr eatening businesses and homes along its path. On Thursday, Sept. 1, the Middlebury football team — in town less than 48 hours and yet to hold its first practice — assembled on a closed Bakery Lane along the banks of the river armed with shovels, sand, and hundreds of bags waiting to be filled. Following an afternoon of preparing and stacking sandbags to pr otect r estaurants and businesses both east and west of the falls,

team members were later deployed to a r esidential ar ea adjacent to the Pulp Mill Bridge, wher e rising water had cr ested the river bank and steadily appr oached a series of homes. On Satur day, Sept. 3, the cross country teams were expected to travel northeast to Hinesberg to assist in the cleanup and repair of a home and surr ounding farm belonging to the par ents of Noah Hurlburt, a teacher at Middlebury Union High School and new assistant coach for the Panthers’ men’s and women’s cr oss country teams.

9/11 concert in spirit of world peace By Rosalyn Graham

Historic Cooley Covered Bridge in Pittsford: A survivor of the Aug. 28 flood Photo by Lou Varricchio

Good news: covered bridges survive PITTSFORD — Contrary to news r eports appearing in local media, the Town of Pittsford did not lose a single historic covered bridge to the Aug. 28 flash flood caused by tr opical storm Irene. According to Town Clerk

and Treasurer, is Helen McKinlay, “I guess someone, somewher e, just assumed we lost our bridges. Not tr ue. All our cover ed bridges—the Hammond, Depot, Cooley , Gor ham and Depot bridges—are intact. They are survivors.”

High water r eached and covered the decking of four of the five 19th-century bridges. The lowest bridges, the Depot and Cooley bridges, will pr obably be the last to dry out as the flood water r ecedes in the coming weeks.

SHELBURNE — On the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, music and messages of peace will fill the cathedrallike Br eeding Barn at Shelburne Farms as All Souls Interfaith Gathering hosts “A Choral Celebration of the Earth: W orld Peace and Healing.” The Choral Celebration of the Earth, at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11, will be a service of music, inspiring r emarks and readings that offer a message of peace and healing for the world. Among the speakers are Susan Cooke Kittredge of Shelburne and Rabbi Jan Salzman Massed choirs fr om the area will sing the inspirational Celtic Mass for Peace, new music fr om the emer ging EarthPeace Oratorio, and the new Peace Anthem,

all by composer Sam Guarnaccia. The musicians will include members of the All Souls Interfaith Choir, South County Chorus, and the Essex Children’s Choir. Samuel Guarnaccia, a Vermont native, studied classical guitar in Spain and has performed throughout parts of Europe and North America. A guitarist, composer and scholar, he has deep ties to the history , traditions, and spirituality of ancient and contemporary indigenous peoples. Guarnaccia composed the music for “A Celtic Mass for Peace: Songs for the Earth” (lyrics by Philip Newell) and is currently writing the music for a major new work, the EarthPeace Oratorio in collaboration with Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, Thomas Berry , John Philip Newell, Joanna Macy , Rainer Maria Rilke, and other voices of the new ‘spiritual

ecology’ of planetary consciousness for Peace, for the ‘survival of cr eation’ and healing of the Earth community. Susan Cooke Kittr edge of Shelburne is an ordained United Chur ch of Christ minister who, since leaving full time pastoral ministry , serves V ermont chur ches when the need arises for short-term coverage. She is also a Vermont Public Radio commentator who has shared her thoughts on life’s pivotal moments. Rabbi Jan Salzman r eceived her Rabbinic Ordination in January 2010. Before moving to Burlington, she lived for over 30 years in North Pomfret with her husband, with whom she has two grown sons. The Choral Celebration is free and open to the public. Freewill donations accepted.
