GM’s late “Vibe” has local champion Local Vibe blogger featured by GM

Rachel Carter of Charlotte loves her Pontiac Vibe so much she started a Vibe auto-owners blog site. The last Vibe rolled off the assembly line Aug. 17. Photo by Andy Duback Photography

CHARLOTTE—The Vermont Vibes Blog is featured in the summer 2009 issue of Pontiac Performance magazine. The blog is authored by Charlotte-based public relations professional Rachel Carter. Carter is the owner of the Rachel Carter PR agency. Pontiac Performance is the official Pontiac publication published by General Motors Corporation and distributed quarterly to Pontiac owners nationwide. Despite the wide popularity of several of Pontiac’s vehicles—including the highly economical Vibe—the storied auto trademark will disappear at the end of 2010, the result of several concessions forced by the Obama administration following the government’s financial rescue of GM. GM is one of the last two all-domestic car manufacturers still in operation. Sadly, the last Vibe rolled off the assembly line in Detroit on Aug. 17, according to an Internet report. The car was part of an unusual joint venture between GM and Toyota. Despite its demise less than a month ago, the Vibe lives on. Also, new and used Vibes are still seen on some car lots around the area. The Vermont Vibes Blog features Carter ’s first-hand experiences exploring Vermont, cooking and gardening adventures at her home and office in Charlotte, and ways to share positive “Vibes” to Vermonters all while traveling in her Pontiac Vibe. Carter has been a six-year customer of Shearer Pontiac locally. The blog was Carter's original creation over two years ago and is independent of Pontiac and General Motors. Photography for the magazine story was made locally by photographer Andy Duback and was photographed in East Charlotte. Both Shearer in South Burlington, Shea Motor Co. in Middlebury, and the Smith GM dealership of Rutland have been faithfully serving Pontiac owners in the region for many years. Carter ’s blogsite is located at

Local officials to remember 2001 terrorist attacks A day of remembrance will be observed this Friday, Sept. 11, at the Hubbardton Battlefield State Historic Site for those who wish to contemplate or honor heroes from the past and present. The museum and facilities will be open free of charge from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site, with its beautiful open rolling meadows and scenic mountain views, offers quiet and tranquility. The Hubbardton Battlefield is the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought in Vermont. It is known as one of the best-preserved battlefields in the country and looks much as it did the day of the battle—July 7, 1777. It is located on Monument Hill Road 6 miles off Route 30 in Hubbardton or 7 miles off exit 5 on Route 4 in Castleton. Carefully follow the signs. On Saturday, Sept. 12, a guided hike to nearby Pittsford Ridge will be led by site interpreter Carl Fuller. The hike, 2-5 p.m., starts at the museum at the Hubbardton Battlefield with an introduction by historian Kate Kenney of the University of Vermont Consulting Archeology Program. For more information about the 9/11 event or hike, call 273-2282.

parent looking for educational field trips, a healthcare professional seeking farmers for patient recommendations, or someone considering a family cow or raw milk business yourself, this is the event for you! Meet the farmers and animals producing some of the finest milk around and learn more about the new raw milk law and the increased opportunities it creates for Vermont. The Unpasteurized (Raw) Milk law that went into effect on July 1 establishes some reasonable and basic standards, increases the quantity of raw milk that can be sold each day to 40 gallons, and allows for home delivery to prepaid customers. This law paves the way for the rebirth of the 10 and 12 cow dairies that dotted the Vermont landscape in the not-so-distant past, and is a huge victory for farmers and consumers alike. In conjunction with Raw Milk Open Farm Day, two of the participating farms will be hosting dairy processing classes from 1-4 p.m. “Beyond Milk” will teach participants how to turn that creamy delicious raw milk into products like cheese, butter, yogurt, and ice cream. Classes will be held at Flack Family Farm in Fairfield and Hope Roots Farm in Westminster. Pre-registration is required for these, and there is a fee. To register, or for more info, call Rural Vermont at 223-7222.

DMV warns of bogus Web site The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles learned today of a bogus website asking motorists to register their vehicles and renew their driver ’s license using a credit card. DMV is warning Vermonters not to use this website as it is not legitimate. The bogus website operates under the guise of both and If computer users use the search engine Google and type in Vermont registration renewals or a similar search phrase, the bogus website can be the first link that appears. The Vermont DMV is warning computer users not to visit these websites, and only visit the official Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles website to do their on-line transactions. “These bogus websites look extremely authentic, inform the user they can save a trip to the DMV and then take the user through a series of screens that appear legitimate,” said Vermont DMV Commissioner Robert Ide. “These bogus websites eventually ask computer users for their credit card information. Please do not give it to them.” The Department of Motor Vehicles has reported the bogus websites to the Vermont Attorney General’s office, and the State has contacted Google to have the bogus web links removed from its search engine. The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles does offer some services on-line. Vermonters looking to legitimately do business with the Vermont DMV through the Internet should visit In general, things to look for to determine if a site is legitimate or spoofed are the following: The URL (web address line) will show the http as https. Note the “s,” which means “secure.” If this is missing, it is not a secure site. Look for the image of a closed pad lock in the lower right hand corner of the screen. This lock indicates that the site is secure, as long as the lock appears locked. An open lock indicates the site is not secure. Seeing this lock in any area of the page, other than the lower right hand corner is a red flag that the site may not be real. Look for misspellings or the inappropriate use of words or incorrect information. On the DMV spoofed site, the prices are incorrect, and it asks if you have a “conservative plate,” which should read, “conservation plate.” For more information on information security please go to the Vermont Information Security web site at:

Jack DuBrul named distinguished citizen Shelburne man is ‘hands on’ SHELBURNE—Champlain College named Jack DuBrul of Shelburne its 2009 Distinguished Citizen for his long-time behind-the-scenes support of community and educational programs. The award was presented to Dubrul, age 75, at the college’s recent 2009 Convocation ceremony as part of the welcome for the incoming class of 2013. College President David F. Finney told the gathering, including 550 freshmen, that “Jack DuBrul long ago figured out that combining his passions with his work was the formula for both a successful business and a rewarding role in the community.” DuBrul, owner of the Automaster car dealership on Shelburne Road in Shelburne, talked to students about his early days in the business and how he grew from a Rambler dealer to offering some of the top prestige cars in the industry Honda, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche and Land Rover. He cited his ability to change with the wind in adapting and growing his business as both cars and the market changed over the past 40 years. When he started selling cars, he had five employees, Automaster now has more than 100 employees, he said. The Distinguished Citizen Award acknowledges DuBrul's many roles in the community, from serving 18 years on the Merchant's Bank board of directors to helping countless civic and charitable organizations, including Shelburne Farms, Champlain College, the Visiting Nurse Association, Fletcher Allen Health Care, United Way, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Vermont Mozart Festival and the Flynn Center

A candidate for Earth II? A

re there other Earths? Absolutely. It would be even more fantastic to this writer to consider only one Earth in the unverse. So have astronomers already discovered Earth II? A recentlydiscovered planet is just the right Earth-like size, but it circles a red dwarf star, named Gliese 581. We don’t think of Earth-like planets being found around red dwarf stars. The faint star in question is located 120 trillion miles (20.5 light years) from our Sun. The discovery has triggered speculation about a second Earth and the possibility of extraterrestrial life existing there. The name Gliese 581 refers to the stellar catalog of nearby stars first compiled by the late German astronomer Wilhelm Gliese. The initial news report about the terrestrial planet, now called Gliese 581c—designated “c” because it’s the third rock from its dwarf sun—triggered wild speculation by news reporters and scientists alike. I recall a careless National Public Radio talk show host who had this distant planet’s surface covered with liquid water and crawling with lifeforms. Talk about jumping to conclusions! So, let’s pull back on the reigns of speculation and put this extrasolar planet in perspective— There's still more that is unknown about Gliese 581c than is known; it’s just too far away to know more about it. And it is very possible that the planet is deadly to life since we know little about the effects of solar radiation bombarding it: Gliese 581c is orbiting extremely close to a red dwarf star. Also, while astronomers consider Mars to be within our Sun’s habitability zone, the red planet appears to be a lifeless body that can’t sustain Terran life without artificial means. Gliese 581c was discovered using the European Southern Observatory's telescope in Chile. This observatory uses a unique device that splits a star ’s light spectrum to reveal “wobbles” in different wave lengths. Hence, the wobbles revealed the existence of planet Gliese 581c. But to be fair to “Earth II” enthusiasts, there is some reason for optimism about the discovery. Gliese 581c is only five times heavier than Earth which suggests that it could be rocky like our planet. This might also mean it’s similar to Jupiter ’s largest moon Ganymede; that is, a planet composed of silicate rock and water ice with an ice crust floating over a warmer ice mantle that might contain an ocean of water. The prevailing idea about Gliese 581c is that it has a diameter about 1.5 times bigger than Earth. This means 581c

would have an atmosphere, but what's in that atmosphere remains a mystery. The European research team that discovered the planet believes the average surface temperature on 581c is between a comfortable 32 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. However, most skeptical astronomers are cautioning that it's just too early to tell whether there is water on 581c. “You need more work to say it's got water or it doesn't have water,” said ex-NASA astronomer Steve Maran, press officer for the American Astronomical Society. “(Even if we had the spacecraft technology available today) you wouldn't send a crew there assuming that when you get there, they'll have enough water to get back.” What’s in the Sky: Under fine viewing conditions, deep-sky object M5 (5.6 mag.) can be glimpsed with your naked eye on Sept. 12. Look in the southwest, above Virgo, in the early evening (see map). M5, located 24,000 light years away, is a globular cluster best seen with at least a 3inch telescope.

A good physical therapist makes all the difference Coupon Queen

By Jill Cataldo

Secret #1: Coupons for "One Free Item" You may be surprised how many coupons for free products exist! You can regularly find coupons for free items in newspaper inserts, on the Internet or even in the stores you regularly shop. These are some of the easiest and most fun coupons to use! Recently, our newspaper inserts had coupons for one free loaf of a brand-name bread, a free single-serving beverage and a free air freshener. There's nothing better than getting something for free with little or no effort. Or is there? You may be surprised to learn that running right to the store with a coupon for a free item isn't necessarily the best way to use these types of coupons. When I get one of these coupons I file it away and then I watch the sales. If my store features this item in a "Buy One, Get One Free" (BOGO) sale, that's when I redeem the coupon for the free item... because I will then get two of that item for free instead of one! Why does this work? I'll give you an example. I have a coupon for a free bag of frozen vegetables. The coupon states that it has a value of up to $1.99, which is what the store will receive when they redeem the coupon. That's also the normal price of the vegetables. But when the store puts the vegetables on sale BOGO, they're selling two bags for $1.99. If I walk in and buy two bags and pay cash, I'll pay $1.99 and get two, right? The same thing happens when I use my coupon for one free bag of vegetables. The coupon covers the $1.99 cost of the first bag, and the second bag is free. This is all part of playing the coupon game. Getting one item for free is good, but getting two items for free is even better! Now, if my coupon gets close to the expiration date, of course I will redeem it and get my free product. But it often pays to play the waiting game, as the BOGO sales will play out in your favor more often than not. Over the course of the past few months, I kept track of the coupons for free items that I accumulated: 38 in all. I held all of them and watched closely, matching them to BOGO sales over that time period. During that time frame, 31 of the items went on sale BOGO. By playing the waiting game, I was able to get 62 free items with those 31 coupons! And with the remaining seven coupons, of course, I still got those seven items for free, too. This truly is the best way to use coupons for one free item. You're getting two... for the price of none! Next week I'll share another best-kept coupon secret with you. © CTW Features Jill Cataldo, a coupon-workshop instructor, writer and mother of three, never passes up a good deal.

t’s important to realize as you age, the nagging aches and pains that arrive within and on your old bones and tissue can for the most part be managed. This summer at a concert I had to run nearly a hundred yards wearing large logging boots. Reaching my destination I knew immediately from pain I felt in my right knee that I’d somehow hurt it. It was obvious the injury wasn’t from any sort of contact, so I wasn’t sure what might have caused the injury, nor was I sure what the injury was. Pain will sometimes leave as quickly as it arrived, but that wasn’t the case with my new knee pain, it got worse as the day went on. The first night with the new pain was such a pain I didn’t sleep well. In the morning, any hope of overnight recovery was stolen away by minor swelling and a good bit of stiffness in my knee. This knee pain felt different than any I’d previously had, and I wasn’t totally sure this injury would heal without having to undergo some sort of surgical procedure, so I made an appointment with my trusty physical therapist. Main point to folks over age 40: by recommendation or cold calling, find a very good physical therapist. I’ve had one for about 10 years who has worked plenty a cranky aging pain away, while at the same time talking me through why and how it occurred, and what I could do to make it stay away. My P.T. knew, after a few tugs on my knee, that I wasn’t going to need surgery to fix it. I swear, once I knew the problem with my knee was a bruise, not a tear, a load lifted from my mind, and 40 percent of the pain went away. The years I’d gone to my P.T. had given my confidence in his judgment, that’s why it’s important to establish a relationship with a therapist you can trust as soon as you can, you old creaky cusses. My P.T. said if the pain wasn’t mostly gone within a week I should come back and he’d do some therapy. But he said he expected it would heal on it’s own. He didn’t bother telling me to take it easy for a few days, or to start doing specific exercises to strengthen the small muscles in and around my knee, because he knew I knew the drill, which was rest and exercise concentrated around the knee would both help it heal, and keep it strong and bolstered from it happening again. By the way, the problem was a bruised meniscus (meniscus is knee cartilage that stabilizes; it acts as a spacer and shock absorbs the area in and around the knee; it also helps with the marriage of the tibia and femur), caused by trauma to the knee bones and joint from running in my large boots, the hard soles not allowing for any type of cushion whatsoever. Made sense to me. The knee pain did decrease, but not as quickly as I’d hoped. I pushed it less when I exercised, totally stopped hiking for a month, and I added some strengthening exercises that address the weak area, and now, though it’s almost a full three months since the injury, I’m pain free and

back to about 95 percent strength. If I were age 28, and stayed off it totally, the knee would have healed completely in half the time, but that’s fine, with age comes patience and knowledge, which is why last week when I tweaked my inner shoulder, I added to my daily errands a ten-minute routine, which concentrates on all the small muscles deep in the shoulder that aren’t always strong and pliable for lack of use. My shoulder responded right away, the pain was gone in three days. We’re lucky to live in a time where there are folks who’ve spent a lot of years and money studying how bodies respond to proper care. I have to assume when prickly injuries brought on aches and pains to people in past generations, they simply grinned and bared it and just plodded through. Here’s an alert to everyone, even you little kids, who will some day have a case of backpack back: Please take care of your smallish, pains in the arms and knees and neck, and back and feet and so on and so forth as your life progresses, because if you don’t, you’ll probably end up taking pills for the pain, and that’s not the best case.

Student learns many lessons on trip to South Korea Local Christians to BRISTOL—Mt. Abraham Union High School sophomore, Sara Sayles, daughter of Todd and Katie Sayles of Bristol, was one of 100 U.S. high school students to be awarded an all expense paid scholarship from the Korea Foundation to participate in a two week study abroad opportunity in South Korea. The program was coordinated by CIEE (Council on International Education Exchange), the Korea Foundation, and Yonsei University in Seoul. While in South Korea, Sara and her peers attended high school-level Korean culture and introductory language classes taught by Yonsei University instructors in classrooms at the University in Seoul. Outside of the classroom Sara’s group went on tours of the ancient Gyeongbokgung Palace, Insadong, Cheonggyecheon Stream, the National Museum of Korea , the Samsung D’light Company, and the Haja Center. Excursions outside of Seoul included a visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) dividing North and South Korea including Imjingak, Freedom Village, the Third tunnel, The Bridge of No Return, and Panmujeon. They toured a Korean traditional village and the Keumsansa Temple in Jeonu, and went to Chunhyang Theme Park in Namwon. In Asan, they visited the Hyundai Asan Factory, and then had some fun at the Everland Amusement Park! Sara was also able to participate in a Taekwondo class at Yonsei University, and attend a non-verbal artistic performance called NanTa. She learned how to make Kim Chi and Kimbob (Korean specialty dishes) with Korean High School students, and was graciously hosted by a South Korean family in their home for a two night stay outside of Seoul. During her time in South Korea, Sara completely embraced the culture into which she was immersed. As a result, she has gained a deeper appreciation for Korea's histo-

Christians United for Israel, founded by Pastor John Hagee, is the nation’s leading Christian pro-Israel organization and is among the largest Christian grassroots organizations in the United States, spanning all fifty states and reaching millions with its message. The organization has held over 100 Night to Honor Israel events in cities across the country since its inception in 2006. These events teach Christians about the importance of supporting Israel and building bridges between the Christian and Jewish communities. CUFI’s mission is to provide a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel.

Devil’s Bowl

Todd Stone’s big showing WEST HAVEN—The battle for the 358-modified track championship at Devil's Bowl Speedway is turning into a real tug of war. Last week, first, Ken Tremont Jr. pulls; then, Todd Stone yanks. Stone drove to his second win of the year in the second of double features Sunday night, setting up a wild finish on the final night of the season. Devil's Bowl will conclude its season on Sunday, Sept. 6, with a 50-lapper for 358-modifieds, which offers double points. Unofficially, Tremont will goes into the final night with a 10-point lead. While Stone won the second feature, Ray Hoard came away with a popular win in the first 30-lapper, which was carried over from a rainout on Aug. 23. The victory was Hoard's first at the Bowl since Sept. 3, 2006. In the first feature, Hoard, who started fifth, took the lead away from Vince Quenneville Jr. on lap 12 and survived a number of late restarts to post his ninth career win at the Bowl. Hoard is no stranger to success at Devil's Bowl, as he won the 358-modified point title in 2004. Quenneville continued his outstanding late-season run, crossing the finish line second for his fifth consecutive topfive finish. Tremont was third, followed by Marc Johnson and Tim Laduc, Stone finished seventh, which allowed Tremont to pad his point lead. But Stone came back with an impressive victory, the 15th of his career, in the second feature. Again, Quenneville was the early leader, but Stone, who started 12th, charged into the lead on lap on lap 16 and destroyed the field, finishing with a 4.5-second margin of victory over Quenneville. Tremont was again third, with Laduc fourth and Hoard fifth. Frank Hoard III and Derrick McGrew got the wins in the budget sportsman features. McGrew's win, his second of the year, was doubly important because CVRA budget sportsman points were on the line. Hoard III held off Hunter Bates to come away with his fourth win of the year in the first feature. He and Bates battled right to the finish line, with Hoard winning by a bumper. Justin Comes was third, with Anthony Marro fourth and Frank Hoard Jr. fifth. McGrew outran Tim Hartman Jr. and Jack Swinton to come away with the win in the second 25-lapper. Marc Hughes finished fourth, with Hoard III fifth. Cale Kneer pulled off a sweep in the pro-street stock division, winning both features to up his victory total to six in 2009, and Bill Duprey pulled off back-to-back wins in the limited division, giving him five wins on the season. The Empire Lightning Sprints were back at the Bowl on Sunday night, with Don Harvey taking the checkered flag ahead of Ralph Utter Jr. and Mike Kiser. The win was Harvey's second of the campaign at the Bowl, while Kiser now has a win, a second and a third in three trips to the Vermont track. The final night of racing on Sunday, Sept. 6 will feature the, which will include a 50-lapper for 358-

modifieds. Double points will be offered in all divisions, and the CRSA sprints will make their final appearance of 2009 at the speedway.

SHELBURNE—Want to get in shape fast? If the thought of pounding the pavement doesn’t appeal, check out the latest fitness phenomenon to arrive at Shelburne Health and Fitness located on Shelburne Road. Les Mills Bodypump™ is a non-impact weights-based exercise class that works every major muscle group in the body using weights, a bar and step. It strengthens, conditions and tones muscles, producing what some describe as “amazing“ results—and fast. “Bodypump classes have a rapid and dramatic effect on body shape,” said Rayne Herzog, club manager in Shelburne. “High repetition with low weights means you tone your muscles, making them strong and lean, rather than bulky, while also burning calories and fat. After a few weeks of regular classes, participants notice a real difference.”

Instructors offer guidance on the correct lifting techniques throughout the class, with people of all levels of fitness exercising together, setting their own workout depending on the weight they add to the barbell. Hot sounds and compelling choreography keep users going through each 45 to 60-minute workout. “If you’ve always thought that exercise is boring, Les Mills Bodypump will change your mind,” said Herzog. “The classes are incredibly motivating, with dynamic music and an instructor giving constant encouragement and feedback throughout the session. The classes are always easy to follow too, with no complicated choreographed moves, so there is no danger of feeling lost or self-conscious.” Developed in New Zealand, the Les Mills range of exercise-to-music programs is becoming one of the world’s

most popular ways to keep fit, according to experts in the field. All the choreography is developed in conjunction with health experts to ensure the moves are safe, and classes are updated every three months so participants stay inspired. Five million people a week now take part in Les Mills programs in 12,000 clubs in more than 70 countries around the world, according to Herzog. Bodypump is just one of the programs offered at Shelburne Health and Fitness. Others include pilates, Spinning, yoga, kickboxing, step aerobics, and more. Members report that they love the combination of uplifting music and specially trained, motivating instructors in the classes – not to mention the fact that they apparently get good results. To learn more, contact Herzog at 9853141.

Storytellers to gather Congressman visits Vergennes campus MIDDLEBURY—There will be fun for all ages at the third annual Vermont Story Festival on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 11 a.m.–4 p.m. in Middlebury. The festival, sponsored by the Henry Sheldon Museum, the Ilsley Public Library and the Vermont Folklife Center, will take place at those sites in downtown Middlebury, at the Town Hall Theater and outside in Cannon Park. The event is an official Quadricentennial program. The theme of this year ’s Vermont Story Festival centers on indigenous culture from around the Champlain region. The stories, music, dance and art shared by members of our region’s Abenaki communities are important elements to the idea that narrative and artistic expression assist in honoring and validating life and helps to celebrate the fact that storytelling is not ordinary but “extra”ordinary and central to life. The festival begins at 11 a.m. at the Town Hall Theater with “Exploring Native American Song, Dance and Culture,” featuring the W’Abenaki Dancers and the Abenaki storytellers Hand in Hand (Marge Bruchac and Justin Kennick). Programs continue at the Henry Sheldon Museum, the Vermont Folklife Center and the Ilsley Public Library in the afternoon from 1-4 p.m. All Festival activities are free; donations are welcome. Following the performances at the Town Hall Theater, the W’Abenaki Dancers will present a Dance Workshop in Cannon Park at 1:15 pm. All ages are welcome to participate in this opportunity to learn traditional Abenaki dance moves. All afternoon, two craft activities will be offered at the Sheldon Museum. Judy Dow, Abenaki educator, will lead a children’s art and craft activity in the Abenaki tradition. On the Sheldon’s side porch, participants may make a small clay bowl using traditional pinch and coil techniques. Admission to the Sheldon’s special exhibit Mapping Champlain's New World will be discounted 10 percent the day of the festival.

VERGENNES—U.S. Congressman Peter Welch (DVermont) was on a fact finding mission at Northlands Job Corps Academy last week. Students and staff joined the congressman in a tour around the century old campus; they talked about the current career and educational opportunities offered to youth at Northlands. Dale Nolan, social development manager at Northlands Job Corps Academy, talked to Welch about Job Corps’ 45-year history as the nation’s largest and most successful career technical training program for economically disadvantaged youth. “Several main components helped Job Corps to be this successful, including the individual approach to each student’s needs, handson learning experiences, and internships with real businesses from the area. Constant measurement of progress allows for rapid, precise and effective academic interventions, which increases greatly the success of our students, and helps with accountability.” During this visit, Welch

U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vermont) on a recent tour at the Northlands campus in Vergennes. met with the executive board of the Northlands Student Government Association, and several other students enrolled in the program. The students showed their dormitories, classrooms and trade shops to Congressman, explaining their daily routine and the

rules at Northlands. Students were able to meet Welch and share their experiences at Job Corps with him. “I just love every day I spend here. I’m working on my LNA, I’m getting my GED and my driver ’s license,” said Elsa Moreta, a

student of Northlands. “It was a real honor for me to take such an important visitor on a tour of our campus!” Welch was apparently impressed with the program and accepted to have a student from Northlands shadow in his office in Washington, D.C., later this month.

Makin’ bacon elsewhere

Town of Middlebury wastes taxpayer funds

SATURDAY September 12, 2009



ne of the sounds apparently not echoing too often in the verdant farm hills of the Green Mountain State is the once familiar, “Soo-ee! Here pig, pig. Soo-ee! Here pig, pig.” At least you won’t hear these down-on-the-farm sounds around here if you read the label on the “Vermont-made” product pictured below. According to new flatlander rules governing gentrified Vermont farming, the following is forbidden from Vermont farms without nose whiff of a newcomer to our state: Any animal that grunts, smells, bellows or pollutes; these critters are considered unsightly in both stature and numbers—they are not unique or cuddly like alpacas. (Future bête-noirs added as needed.) This new Vermont farming criterion is entirely subjective and not open to your review. New arrivals to Vermont are free to make suggestions: The strictures placed on farmers as to what they may do with their land, are by diktat. Infuriated Toyota Prius-driving doxies—caught behind some farmer operating a tractor—and who missed their Pilates class sued to get ceramic cows. (No better is the toff late to his PTSD chat group for metrosexuals with bad hair.) I can hear them now: “Vermont would be so nice without the stink and clank of—oh, you know... whatever.” J. Kirk Edwards

ome people in Middlebury are tickled pink about the the make-over of Middlebury's so-called Post Office Plaza. I find “plaza” a little grandiose, but call it what they may, that doesn’t change the truth. This improvement project is more like an embarrassment. The State of Vermont has no money, and yet it had $29.450 to give Middlebury for this beauty project. (Aka “Visually pleasing and pedestrian friendly exposed aggregate concrete" instead of that "conventional concrete,” three, six-foot-long benches, two honey locust trees, and two perennial flower patches.) And when completed, will have a “similar look and feel as the entrances to the nearby Town Hall Theatre and Middlebury Natural Food Co-Op.” Just what a person who aspires to live in a Disney planned community would want. Is that our goal here? The State of Vermont has no money. When you don’t have any money, you make-do. You don't spend $29.450 on a image make-over for Middlebury. All over the state there are bridges that need to be fixed. There are roads that need to be fixed. Right in Middlebury there are other sidewalks that need to be fixed. But Middlebury gets a post pffice “plaza”. What are members of the legislature thinking? Middlebury's Downtown Improvement District asked for the money and threw an additional $18,550 into the project. But I doubt they could have pulled this project off without the generosity of the state. The $29,450 is grant money, I am told. “It's free money.” (I am told this in a tone that suggests grant money is magical money—not our tax money. It should be a mandated lesson in school: All government money comes from the people, not from a magic bean stock.) Grant money is basically a sham. The government takes tax dollars and then “awards” it to A instead of B—often because A knew how to make a better application, not because A represents an obvious, more deserving project. Members of the legislature want to play Santa. This is how they do it. Downtown Middlebury has a serious problem. Go down to Frog Hollow and you’ll find a row of empty storefronts with the old art center going to ruin. It wasn’t

that long ago that that little “plaza” got a make-over. A lot of good that make-over did for those stores. I expect the same big bang for this project’s bucks. All sound and fury signifying nothing. The downtown business association might do better to exert its energies on finding a draw for downtown Middlebury business. I feel confident in saying people aren’t going to come here for the Middlebury Post Office Plaza. The country is going into debt up to our children’s children's children's ears. We can't afford the things we need, let alone superficial beautification. The sidewalk near the Post Office needed a little work. Fix that and move on. And use the "conventional concrete." If the State of Vermont insists on giving Middlebury all that money, couldn't Middlebury save it in a rainy-day fund? Oh, wait , I forgot—if something bad happens those guys with the fiduciary responsibility of spending our money wisely will just vote in another tax hike. Business property taxes are already on the rise. The legislature seems to think it can milk the golden cows forever. But it doesn't work that way. That kind of policy will lead to a day when there's no milk at all. The cows will have run dry, and be dead and gone. We are repeating history. The State of Vermont has no bread so it allows Middlebury (and probably other towns with similarly unnecessary projects) to eat cake. Disgraceful. Flanzy Chodkowski Middlebury Editor’s Note: The Eagle agrees 100 percent with the letter writer—Middlebury’s downtown post office project was a waste of taxpayer funds. Ms. Chodkowski is also correct about the media’s use of the term “grant”—it is cleverly used by elected big spenders and the “grant” recipients; it is often a euphemism used in place of what it really is, taxpayer money. This newspaper tries to identify taxpayer funds as such; we feel it’s dishonest to local taxpayers for a newspaper to use clever words in place of taxpayer funds. Witness recent taxpayer “stimulus grants” used to finance claptrap such as one Addison County artist’s self-expression performance using fresh water. Fiddling while Rome burns.

Editor’s note Got a bone to pick? Want to give someone a piece of your mind? OR Want to thank someone? Are congratulations in order? Leave feedback to letters, columns, articles, blogs and more at...

Thank you, Gov. Douglas


his newspaper salutes Gov. Jim Douglas for his years of public service and for his mature, steady leadership. He is a model public figure—balanced and respectful—demonstrating good morals and ethical principles. We will be sorry to see him exit Vermont’s political stage. The governor and First Lady Dorothy Douglas’s marriage is a role-model relationship for many citizens who look up to the Douglas family with pride. (We also find the governor's wry sense of humor to be both refreshing and very human—qualities frequently lacking in so many of to-

day's politicians.) With that said, we wish Gov. Douglas all the best and much success; his disappearance from the statewide scene in 16 months will be a great loss to the public life of this state.

How a tiny spout may change the maple industry An innovative new maple spout developed by the University of Vermont’s Proctor Maple Research Center with taxpayer funding secured by U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) will have a dramatic impact on maple syrup production and boost job creation and economic development in the state, the senator announced at a press conference last week. The new spout will increase sap yields by 50 to 90 percent per tree. The announcement was made at Progressive Plastics in Williamstown, Mass., which began commercial production of the device, called a check valve spout, the day of the press conference. Progressive Plastics is manufacturing the spout for Leader Evaporating Company of Swanton, which licensed the technology from UVM and will market and sell it. Two new UVM appropriations support maple research at UVM’s Proctor Center: $188,000 to fund research by the Proctor to further increase sap yields and $188,000 to develop a non-toxic wood adhesive. Although Leader has not yet listed the spout in its catalog or on its web site, the company has already received 1 million advance orders. Leader is projecting sales of three million units this maple season, making the spout its number one selling product. In the future, sales could be significantly higher. According to Gary Gaudette, president of Leader Evaporator, the check valve spout could have a revolutionary impact on the maple industry. “We’re very excited about the new fitting,” he said. “It’s going to add as much to syrup and sap production as vacuum tubing did. I’m confident that this is going to be the thing to use in the future.” There are between 50 and 55 million taps in use in North America, Gaudette said. Both Leader and Progressive Plastics are in hiring mode despite the recession, leadership at both companies said, and both anticipate the new spout will add further to their need to bring on new staff. The check valve technology was developed by Timothy Perkins, director of the Proctor Maple Research Center. It

employs a valve, a small ball that rolls back and forth in a chamber within the spout , to block the flow back into the tree of sap containing bacteria. All tapped maple trees pull sap back into their tap holes, as they try to balance the negative pressure established both by natural process and by vacuum systems, which are pervasive in the industry. Bacterial backflow in turn causes the tree’s natural defense system to wall off the contaminated area of the tap hole, essentially plugging it and ending a sugar-maker ’s season. Such walling off typically occurs late in the season. By allowing the tree’s sap to continue to flow, the new spout will extend the sugar-making season by one-and-ahalf to two-and-a-half weeks, according to testing conducted by the Proctor and confirmed by Leader ’s field testing. The sugaring season is typically four weeks long. The tap could also mitigate the effect of global warming on the Vermont maple industry. Warming has shortened the Vermont maple season by 10 percent over the last 40 years, according to research conducted by Perkins.

Libraries seek “bailout” funds The Vermont Department of Libraries has submitted an application for $601,753 in Federal grant funds from the taxpayer funded American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program for Public Computing Centers. According to Martha Reid, state librarian, the BTOP grant awards will be announced in November. “If we get this grant, thousands of Vermonters will have access to free computer training at a variety of locations around the state and four of our busiest public libraries will be able to purchase additional computers for public use,” Reid said. Partnering with the Vermont State Colleges (VSC), the Department of Libraries designed a proposal that would use funds to enhance public computing centers in the public libraries in Brattleboro, Burlington, Lyndon and Rutland and to provide over 10,000 hours of free computer training classes for the public at VSC and public library locations throughout the state.

Day of awareness for hazing, alcohol abuse MIDDLEBURY—National Gordie Dday, to be held Sept. 24, is now a part of over 85 campuses—including Middlebury College. The day helps spread awareness about the dangers of alcohol and hazing, and commemorate those who have died from alcohol related incidents. “More than 5,000 underage American students will die in the coming year due to alcohol misuse—much of it due to peer pressure from hazing,” according to Ashley Wessel. National Gordie Day is

presented by the Gordie Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by parents Leslie and Michael Lanahan in memory of their son, Lynn Gordon Bailey, Jr., a freshman who died of an alcohol overdose following a Chi Psi fraternity hazing incident at the University of Colorado in 2004. This is the second year of National Gordie Day at Middlebury College; the number of other Gordie registered campuses has nearly quadrupled from the inaugural year, indicating a growing concern.

Local broadband future looking brighter


Internet-related technologies proposed by Vermont broadband stimulus applicants include fiber for the home, DSL, and wireless. Art courtesy of Family Handyman

From New Market Press Staff & News Reports Vermont Chief Recovery Officer Tom Evslin announced last week that five area organizations have applied for over $130 million of taxpayer stimulus grants and loans for lastmile broadband projects that could reduce the number of Vermont households without available high speed Internet to less than 5 percent of the total. Technologies proposed by the various applicants include fiber to the home, DSL, and wireless. In addition the Vermont Council for Rural Development has requested $2.5 million for a sustainable broadband adoption program to help assure that Vermonters in 24 pilot communities have the equipment, training, and motivation to use broadband. The Vermont Center for Geographic Information has applied for a $1.96 million grant to continue and extend Vermont’s broadband mapping effort. The Department of Libraries has applied for 80 percent stimulus funding of $754,000 for a public computing center project to assure that computers are available in selected libraries for those who do not yet have equipment or broadband connections available at home. Using definitions of broadband adopted by the federal agencies for the stimulus program, it is estimated that less than 20 percent of Vermont’s 242,200 residences did not have broadband available as of January 2009. There are existing, legally enforceable agreements with Comcast and FairPoint that should bring this number down to near 10 percent by the end of 2010. It is possible that stimulus grants now applied for could reduce this to less than 5 percent. The goal remains 100 percent broadband availability but the state, Comcast and FairPoint have come up short in many of their pronouncements to date. Comcast and FairPoint have been slow to expand broadband coverage without the assistance of the taxpayers.

The King’s Inn Chiropractor

Q: Is chiropractic care helpful for headaches? A: A good number of headaches can be attributed to tension in the neck. The neck muscles attach to the back of the head and when they are in spasm they pull on the head and can cause headaches. Another cause is that nerves coming out of the neck can be pressured (choked off) by the bones that are support to protect them. This is two ways that the neck is related to headaches, and they are extremely common. So, the next time you get a headache, check and see how your neck feels. Chiropractic care is very effective when one or both of these conditions are occurring. There is, of course, only one way to find out. Get checked by a chiropractor and see if adjustments help. There are no side effects as chiropractic care is remarkably safe. So the answer is that yes, chiropractic care can be very helpful for headaches. “the greatest wealth is health” Call 388-6376, mention this article and schedule an appointment for a FREE Evaluation and X-rays. 38095

CVU takes season opener By Frederick Pockette Champlain Valley Union High School quarterback Konnor Fleming had a huge opening game while leading his Redhawks to a 39-20 road win over the Burr and Burton Bulldogs last Friday night in Manchester. .Fleming threw for two touchdown passes and ran for four more to orchestrate the 19 point win. Collin Teator nabbed one of those two TD passes for an 88-yard scoring strike. Ian Solomon caught the other TD pass. Defensively Cameron Fitzgerald had seven sacks for the victorious Redhawks. CVU now has two weeks off before they host the Middlebury Tigers on Saturday, September 26th. The remaining two Addison County teams didn’t fare as well. Devon Grammo, ran for 171-yards and three touchdowns to lead his Colchester Lakers to a 28-6 opening night win over the Middlebury Tigers, in more high school football Friday night. Grammo had touchdown runs of 9, 66 and 6 yards. Colchester ’s remaining score was a 32-yard TD pass from Jack LeClerc to Alec Kozlowski.. Middlebury’s lone score was a 23-yard TD pass from Brendan Burrell to Devon Bradford. The Tigers will be seeking their first win this Friday night when they host the Fair Haven Slaters in their home opener. Last Saturday in Brandon the Otter Valley Otters celebrated their new field by crushing the visiting Mount Abraham Eagles 56-7. Junior quarterback Zak Williams didn’t pass a lot, but when he did throw it he made it count. Williams completed five of just six pass attempts for 115 yards and four touchdowns. Senior Joey Massores caught a pair of those touchdown passes. Sophomore Nate Fitzgerald caught a 50 yard TD bomb and senior Casey Babcock had the other scoring catch. The lone Eagles score came in the fourth quarter on an eighteen yard touchdown scamper from Sam Lieberman. The 0-1 Eagles are at Winooski this Friday night before coming home next Saturday to host Bellows Falls in their home opener. The 1-0 Otters will be at Bellows Falls Saturday afternoon to take on the Terriers.

Soccer Four Addison County girl’s soccer teams opened their 2009 seasons last Saturday, yet only the Champlain Valley Union Redhawks could manage to start the season off with a win. In Milton the CVU Redhawks scored three second half goals to defeat the hometown Yellow Jackets 3-0. Emily Leffler, Haleigh Smith and Nicole Utter scored for CVU, while their goalie Emily Sackett made seven saves to record the shutout. Hillary Turner had 14 saves in defeat for the 0-1 Yellow Jackets. In Middlebury, Brittany Pfaff posted four goals to lead her Rice Memorial Green Knights to a 5-2 win over the Middlebury Tigers. Hillary Hee, while assisting Pfaff on two of her goals, supplied Rice with their remaining score. Alayna Hauke (three saves) and Kylie Rice (two saves) combined to make five saves in front of the net for the 1-0 Green Knights. Mattea Bagley and Molly Clarke scored single goals and Middlebury goalie Sara Boudah made a dozen saves for the 0-1 Tigers Meanwhile in Fairfax, Mikayla Forsey and Olivia Root teamed up for a pair of first-half goals, leading BFA-Fairfax to a 3-0 blanking of the Mount Abraham Eagles. Root provided two assists, which Forsey converted into goals.. Brooke Benoit scored the remaining BFA-Fairfax goal. Goalies Ruby Bushey (five saves) and Casey Baczewski (two saves) combined for seven saves to record the co-shutout for the 1-0 Bullets. Shanna Gebo recorded 10 saves in the net for the 0-1 Eagles Lilah Watt had a goal and an assist in Montpelier to lead her Salons to a 3-0 shutout win over the visiting Vergennes Commodores. Caitlin Patterson and Alexis Boucher supplied single goals for the Solons in their opening day win. Montpelier goalie Caroline Dellipriscoli needed to make just three saves to preserve the shutout, as the 1-0 Salons defense kept the pressure off her all day. Vergennes goalie Christina Stinchfield posted eight saves for the 0-1 Commodores. The Vergennes Commodores boy’s squad didn’t fare much better last Friday night in Fayston. Derek Zucco scored four goals, three of them coming in the second half, to lead his Green Mountain Valley Gumbies to a 6-1 thumping of the visiting Commodores. Thomas Woolson contributed a goal and three assists to the win, while Staige Davis chipped in with a single goal. Jack Kirby made seven saves in the net for the 1-0 Gumbies. Dustin Dattillo scored the lone Vergennes goal, while goalie JC Dugan posted a dozen saves for the 0-1 Commodores.
