MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury businessman Gardner Stone and his family are about to make their Hollywood debut. Stone, who owns G. Stone Motors in Middlebury, is appearing in eight episodes of the upcoming GSN (Game Show Network) television series, titled “Family Trade.” The new series will follow Stone around the area as he barters for business. The series is being produced by Rogue State Productions for Lionsgate, the series producer. The television production crew—producers, technicians, and a makeup artist—will be in Addison County during the coming week. Stone got the attention of GSN executives when they learned that he doesn't always take credit or cash when selling autos and trucks. Stone said he has taken everything from pigs and pool tables to cowboy boots and pizzas in barter. “People in Vermont are amazing. No one barters like what Stone does much anymore. It’s 2012,” said Eli Frankel, executive producer for Rogue State. “This is a very unique place. We’re enjoying being here.” Frankel, with co-executive producer Mikey McManus and crew, recorded See TV CREW, page 7

MIDDLEBURY — Revered by millions of Buddhists and non Buddhists alike, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, 77, is scheduled to visit Middlebury College Oct. 12-13. The unprecedented highlevel visit to Middlebury has prompted tighter than normal security and guest restriction. And the holy man’s appearances on campus will not be free. In advance of next month’s visit, the campus is holding several public events to commemorate the historic visit. The first event to preceed the Dalai Lama’s visit was the Sept. 12 screening of the film “Kundun,” directed by Martin Scorsese. Then, on Sept. 20, Professor Cynthia Packert presented a discussion, titled “Portraits of Compassion: Images of Lamas in Tibetan Art,” at McCardell Bicentennial Hall. And this Sunday, Sept. 30, Tenzin Ngawang, a mas-

ter of Tibetan music and dance, will conduct workshops and perform. Following Ngawang’s sessions, the documentary film “Buddha Prince Backstage” will be screened in Dana Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.. Beginning less than two weeks before the visit, on Oct. 1, Markell Kiefer and Tyson Lien, college alumni and the creative talent associated with the “Buddha Prince Backstage” film, noon to 2 p.m. , will discuss the making of the documentary. Next, on Oct. 5, Religion Professor William Waldron will discusss the role of the Dalai Lama. His “What Is a Dalai Lama and Who is the 14th Dalai Lama? The Buddhist Historical Context” talk starts at 12:15 p.m. in Dana Auditorium. Following Waldron’s talk is a screening of the film, “The Fire Inside: Place, Passion and Primacy of Nature,” co-produced by Rebecca Kneale Gould, associate professor of religion. The screening will be at 7 p.m. in Room 229 of the Axinn Center. See DALAI LAMA, page 7

Leaf peepers see early start to autumn colors By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — It's official—autumn began last weekend. While it's early yet, colors are showing in the higher elevations of the Northeast Kingdom and in moist, low-lying areas with varying shades of orange, yellow and red, according to Jen Butson of the Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing. “In general, higher elevation areas in the northernmost regions will offer the most panoramic views of emerging color across the valleys, and many low-lying marsh areas will offer some of the most vivid and varied early season change,” according to Butson. “Check out Route 108 through Smugglers’ Notch between Stowe and Cambridge; it's showing color starting Aug. 17, as are Routes 242 and 100 near Jay Peak; plus Routes 16 and 5A in the Lake Willoughby area. The Worcester Range and Mount Elmore along Route 12 north of Montpelier are tinged with early color, as are views from Route 14 in the Hardwick and Craftsbury region.” Butson said some color may be visible on Lincoln Mountain in Addison County. Rutland County Forester Chris Stone said Route 103 is revealing color in early stages. “Trees are just starting to lose some green and hints of yellow and orange are starting to show at higher elevations. Some scattered individual red maples are turning at higher elevation wetlands. While the color has yet to really show, there is a hint of fall on the hillsides,” Stone said. Sam Schenski, the Windham and Windsor County Forester also suggests Rte. 106 through Perkinsville; Tyson Road from Reading to Plymouth and East Hill Road in Andover, all of which, he notes are in early stages of foliage.

Silo gas: a threat to Vermont farmers By Gail Lapierre

coughing, burning, shortness of breath, chills, fever, headache, nausea and vomiting. Symptoms may take from three to 30 hours to develop after mild exposure to silo gas. The slow, progressive inflammation of the lungs causes a buildup of fluid in the lungs, which often is fatal. Relapses often occur in two to six weeks. The second occurrence may be milder or more severe than the first episode. Prevention starts in the field. The highest level of nitrates in the corn plant is in the lowest part of the stalk. To reduce the nitrate level in forages for silage, farmers should raise the cutter bar when harvesting, leaving 10 to 12 inches of stalk in the field. Other tips include: Cover bunkers and piles immediately after harvesting, stay out of an upright silo for at least three weeks after filling, always ventilate the silo room. Open windows and the door to the outside for at least three weeks after filling the silo but keep the door between the barn and the silo room closed for that same time period. Don't open the plastic of a silage bag or bunk/pile cover for at least three weeks after ensiling, do not puncture bubbles that may appear in the plastic wrap, and think about where NO2 gas may drift from horizontal silos, piles and silage bags. The gas is heavier than air and may collect in low areas or buildings, good areas to avoid. Anyone exposed to silo gas should see a doctor immediately. Remember, this can be fatal. In addition, high nitrates in corn can cause health issues with livestock. Before feeding, farmers should work with their feed dealer and have the corn tested. The University of Vermont's Agricultural and Environmental Testing Lab will do nitrate testing for $10 per sample. For information on submitting a sample, visit or call 656-3030.

University of Vermont Extension BURLINGTON — Silo-filler's disease, caused by exposure to silo gas, is a real risk to farmers this year due to the dry weather. Although New England has been fortunate to have not had the drought conditions that the Midwest has suffered, it has been dry enough to increase nitrates in corn. These high nitrate levels mean a greater potential for silo gas to form from fresh stored silage. Workers can be exposed to silo gas around horizontal silos and bagged silage as well as in upright silos. Inhaling even a small amount can result in serious, permanent or fatal lung injury. Luckily, the disease can be prevented through proper work practices. What is Silo gas? In a dry year, there will be increased nitrates in the corn. Within a few hours of ensiling, fermentation begins. Some bacteria use the nitrates in the corn instead of oxygen for fermentation, forming nitric oxide, a non-lethal gas. This gas combines with oxygen in the air, producing nitrogen dioxide (N02), which is heavier than air and toxic to humans and animals. It has a yellowish-reddish-brown color and a bleach-like smell. However, with so many odors around the farm, farmers should not rely on odor alone to alert them to its presence. Carbon dioxide (CO2) also is formed in the process but not often to lethal levels. Silo gas--the combination of NO2 and CO2-forms within a few hours of ensiling and continues to be formed for up to three weeks after the last silage is added to the silo. Silo-filler's disease results from exposure to silo gas. The NO2 combines with water in the lungs and forms nitric acid, which is very corrosive. Once exposed to the gas, a person can become helpless in as little as two to three minutes. Symptoms of silo-filler's disease include

From the editor

Thoughts about things to come


recent weekend edition of USA Today included a special section, titled “The Next 30 Years”. It focused on what life, and day-to-day things, will be like in the year 2042—30 years hence. The special section included interviews with some of the world’s most notable visionaries in their fields, such as Hollywood’s James Cameron (on the future of cinema and video), architect Andres Duany (on the future of American lifestyles and urban living), high-flying celebrity British capitalist Sir Richard Branson (on the future of private spaceflight), and—well—you get the idea. While Sir Richard’s prediction, that millions of common folk (aka, you and me) will be flying in 90-minute-long hypersonic, suborbital aerospace arcs between New York and Tokyo by 2042 is wild at best, others were less science fictional and grounded in 2012 reality. For example, architect and urban planner Andres Duany—who is best known for crafting the faux, beachfront Pleasantville known as Seaside, Fla.—predicts that by 2042 more people will be living in bigger cities with smaller homes, smaller yards, and ever shrinking personal transportation options. Duany’s idea of utopia 2042 is for more people to sit on their newly crafted front porches and spend more time pedaling bicycles to work. While quaint for the most part, Duany may be on to something. Duany likes designing his post-modern houses with old-fashioned front porches based on the Ray Bradburyesque idea that our culture lost something when front porches vanished from architectural plans. Thus, we no longer take the time to know our neighbors or sit and rock alongside Aunt Bee after a hard time commuting our gas guzzlers two hours to the office. No matter, finding time to relax, reflect, and meditate everyday is a very healthy idea, but how much of this is just wishful, thinking on the part of some visionaries and academics? Who will keep our ever-shrinking sector of the ever-growing competitive world marketplace going while we relax and enjoy a bike ride to work (after sipping comfrey tea and reading USA Today on the front porch)? In 2012 reality, things seem to be going the other way. Now, of Duany’s idea about shrinking personal space, I think he’s on to something. Have you visited a large American city like New York or Boston recently? Proximity to entertainment, culture, and all-night bar hopping aside, have you ever really second guessed your choice of fleeing such a place to live in Vermont? In the cities of the year 2042 of visionaries like Duany, there’ll be even less chance of finding your personal center compared to life in today’s cities. Duany’s “New Urbanism”—of ever more elbow-to-elbow jostling (while we grow zucchini next to rooftop solar panels and windmills)—may have its utopian appeal, it’s not really the kind of future I choose to live in. There must be something, which blends the best of all futures, someplace in between. Still, many of our currently elected, central-planning-prone politicians on the national stage seem determined to get us into Duany’s “New Urbanism” as quickly as possible. They want us out of our cars and onto sidewalks (which every Vermont home should have by 2042), as they take away our Big Gulps, our smokes, our comfortable luxe sedans—even our gasoline. And all for what? So, we have more time to sit on the front porch? Don’t get me wrong. I don’t totally disagree with Duany’s vision of what future life will be like, but how much of our current, perceived scarcity of resources and diminished horizons are just our generation’s version of the fear of the future? (I remember my father stocking U.S. Civil Defense nutrition-cracker tins in the basement of our family’s suburban house when the Cuban Missile Crisis was dominating the front pages of newspapers). No matter, I guess there’s one thing about predicting the future that is certain: it never turns out the way you imagined it—or planned for it. Louis Varricchio

The value of Liberty and Life


ome days it’s hard to be optimistic and positive about the future. Current events around the world, wrangling political parties warning us the other side will drive us into Armageddon, the unemployment rate, fuel prices and the general mood of folks lately is anything but uplifting. I’ve heard some people say the mood is downright mean-spirited and that people seem to be self consumed. Some blame it on the talking heads; others blame it on the political system, TV programming, the media, or the internet. In reality there is plenty of blame to go around, but most of us need look no further than the mirror. We’ve all played a role in the arrival of the dark clouds hanging over our heads these days. The liberty and freedoms we so thankfully enjoy don’t create happiness by themselves, they only set the stage. Like a big jigsaw puzzle, one piece can have an overwhelming influence over the other pieces or it can just fall into place with all of the others. Sometimes the solution to the puzzle is right in front of us, we just have to look. Other times, the solution can be lost in the sheer number of pieces surrounding it. Look no further than the recent events in the Middle East. After years of totalitarian rule, where every move of the people was controlled by a stiffhanded dictator, years of pent-up anger and a desire to test the limits of this newfound freedom are being released. The population there is finding they are as frustrated now as they were before they overthrew the former government. How much do you think their lives would improve if they brought about death to America, as they so often chant during their protests? On the other hand, how much have our lives or the world changed since the deaths of Osama Bin Laden, Sadim Hussein or Moammar Gadhafi? Those three men were killers and treated the people of their nations horribly, but their deaths alone have not brought about instant gratification to their nations, nor have their deaths altered people’s attitudes toward America. They were once influential pieces to the puzzle, but they were never the complete picture. There is no magic formula to finding happiness and a life of freedom and liberty. Like a puzzle it’s a process and one that, after more than 200 years of existence, America is still working to complete. At the core of our Constitution and the rights we’ve been awarded as a free people it all boils down to the value we place on those rights. Without realizing the full value these rights give us they are only words on paper that governments, leaders, lawyers

We write about how we love our cats, kids, parents, grandparents, dogs, community and state, and why we’re suspicious of government and politicians, and pesticides, and rap lyrics, and who’s responsible for the rise in the cost of gas and food and property taxes. We write about were we’d like to travel, were we have traveled, how we traveled and whom we traveled with. We write about changing leaves, styles, and tires, and when fall is about gone into winter, and about not getting any younger, getting older, wiser, fatter, weaker, thinner and stronger. We write about the danged Holidays. Not just the Holiday Season. New Years Day, Presidents Day, Martin Luther King Day, Bennington Battle Day, Memorial Day, all the Day days and the others whose titles don’t include Day.

Sixteen I’ll guess she was; dependable, prompt, smart, quick and trustworthy. Lucky for me she worked my booth all through high school and college to earn extra money. No booth hours to give her this year, but fall house-buttonup work needed doing, so she came over and helped with that. She also assisted on a half-day photo session I did early

or citizens can easily minimize. But when we place great value and cherish these rights as one of our most prized possesDan Alexander sions, and are willing to Thoughts from risk everything for fear Behind the Pressline of losing them, we begin to understand their true value. Let me put it another way. Recently I was visiting an employee who experienced a serious accident while on the job that placed him in the hospital, paralyzed from the shoulders down. We are all praying an operation will restore the full use of his body, but until the results of the operation are realized he is left hoping for the simple things many of us take for granted every day. In speaking with him, the joys of moving his body at will, hugging his wife, children and grandchildren, walking on his own two feet once again and the joy of just living his life will now be the greatest of gifts. When the stark realization of what you’ve lost may never return you truly realize the value of what you’ve lost, and if returned, no day in the future would ever be taken for granted. If every human being could come to that simple realization, without undergoing the pain of losing or never having known those precious gifts, and be willing to celebrate that same opportunity with every other human life that shares this small planet, how great would this world be and how thankful and respectful would we be toward each other? Oh sure, we would still have problems to resolve, but we would be far more understanding and willing to work with each other to overcome the simple things while valuing the irreplaceable things. Is any day not a great day where you have your health, family and the freedom to pursue your version of happiness? The most self destructive thing we can do in life is to assume that our happiness comes from someone else’s misery. In life, in politics and in our communities happiness is built on the simple joys of building something together and celebrating the joy of that accomplishment. This country, while far from perfect, will only find its way out from under the dark clouds when we remember to cherish how far we’ve come as a nation and work together to pass along that same opportunity and these important values to the generations that follow.

September. All work she hustled by periodically keeping in touch via email. Love me some hustlers. She teaches piano, rides horses, farms, works with kids, paints, can drive a large tractor, and hold a sun reflector (used to light photo subjects) with the best of em. She reads books, can talk music, movies, pop culture (not including politics), and if talk turns to something she’s not familiar with, she listens, and gets it. Very impressed with her painting work. She treated my entire 46-foot wrap around deck, and spindles, without spilling a drop, in three and one-half hours. I’d guess Erin could do about anything with an ounce of instruction. So can a lot of other folks, right? Right. But a lot of folks don’t want to do just about anything. A lot of folks want to do just about enough. Erin’s soon to be all over the map. She’s all set to high tail it from the Green Mountain State she loves so much and head west. Thoroughly figured, detailed, timed, and budgeted, is her 3,000-mile trip west (estimate), to Redondo Beach, Calif. A fine place for her to bed for now, or forever; she’s leaving it open. Her sister and brother in-law and niece live there, so she’s well anchored from which to sniff out potential ground for her roots to take hold. By the way, for Erin, this isn’t a “there’s nothing going on around here”, or “I gotta get the heck out of Dodge City” thing. She likes Dodge. She loves Dodge. She just recognizes independence as a gift; placing herself far away from what she knows is a potential rewards holding challenge that would be silly to pass up. Why don’t we write much about 24 year-old women? Cause few are as brassy as Erin. “Hey, Erin, you all ready for your trip?” Finishing the treatment of the deck. “Well, I still have one thing to shop for.” “What’s that?,” I ask. “Pepper spray.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Employees of Vermont Hard Cider were in Shoreham last week to help pick apples for a good cause.

Cider company helps pick apples From New Reports SHOREHAM — For the third straight year 20 employees from the Vermont Hard Cider Company, makers of Woodchuck® Hard Cider, visited Champlain Orchards in Shoreham, to participate in the “Pick For Your Neighbor” program.

The day yielded 124 bushels of apples; nearly 5,000 pounds all told. The apples were then loaded onto a Vermont Foodbank truckbound for every corner of the state. This year ’s effort broke the previous record of 113 bushels. In the three years Vermont Hard Cider has been participating, it has picked and donat-

ed more the 13,000 pounds of apples. The “Pick for Your Neighbor” Program asks those picking apples this fall to pick an extra bag, and donate it to those in need. It is a partnership program between the Vermont Foodbank, the Agency of Agriculture and the Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association.

The fifth annual cycling and sampling event drew participants from all over Vermont, as well as the greater New England region, and from as far away as California and England. The tour featured 25 sampling partners from Addison County, including 21 farmers, three restaurants, and the local food cooperative. As cyclists traveled from farm to farm under beautiful blue skies, they were treated to samples of hearty minestrone soup from Eagle’s Flight Farm, apples and cider from Champlain Orchards, signature salsa from Singing Cedars, farm fresh eggs & chicken from Doolittle Farm, creamy tomato basil soup from Neshobe Farm, pate from North Branch Farm & Gardens, and so much more! In addition to

the sampling, cyclists were delighted to find wood-fired oven pizza and Sylvan Shade Farm’s Highland grassfed beef burgers for sale at the Orwell Green. Following their routes, cyclists returned to the Shoreham Green with big smiles, full bellies, and the happy exhaustion that comes with a really good bike ride. The Shoreham Apple Fest was the perfect place to unwind, swap stories, and enjoy some good music and (even more!) food. By all accounts, participants enjoyed the event. In the hours following the tour, cyclist Ute Talley of Hinesburg said, “What a great day and a great event. I'm already inviting people to join us next year.” The Tour de Farms is an annual benefit for ACORN, Rural Vermont, and the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition. With the 2012 tour just concluded, participants were reminded that next year is just around the corner; cyclists and walker are already planning for the next Tour de Farms: Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013.

Local Rotary Clubs seek goodwill ambassadors to France MIDDLEBURY — The Rotary Clubs of Vergennes and Middlebury are looking for four goodwill ambassadors, between the ages of 25 and 40, to travel to France. According to David Clarke of the Middlebury club, “Rotary International promotes understanding and goodwill between countries by providing young professionals, between the ages of 25 and 40, with an all expenses paid trip to another culture with opportunities to meet their occupational counterparts.” The Group Study Exchange (GSE) to Alsace will travel April 30 through May 30. “It’s a wonderful program,” Jennifer Molineaux of the Addison County Economic Development Corporation. “Last year I was on the Group Study Exchange team to South Africa. The contacts I made, both professional and personal, were amazing.” Team members must not be Rotarians or related to a Rotarian. It will be an advantage to speak French, Clarke said. Team members will stay in the homes of local Rotarians and will learn about their corresponding occupation through a minimum of five customized vocational days. The month will be fully booked with cultural and sightseeing activities. The application must be endorsed by either the Vergennes or Middlebury Rotary clubs. Completed applications are due Oct. 15. For further information, contact Clark at or Rotary coordinator Louisa Tripp at

ON TOUR—The Maiden Vermont all-women’s chorus returns to Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater Sept. 29, 7:30 p.m., for its second annual Fall Extravaganza. Under the direction of Lindi Bortney, the non-profit program will include songs old and new, from a variety of genres, all arranged in classic four-part barbershop harmony. Tickets are $15 general, $12 seniors, and $10 for students to age 18.

RUTLAND — Few people have heard of the Rutlandbased non-profit orientization Pure Water for the World. The low-profile humanitarian organization doesn’t really have a bricksand-mortar address in town, just a post office box number. Founded in 1994 by a Brattleboro dentist, Pure Water is hard at work at its mission to bringing safe drinking water to impoverished communities, notably Haiti and Honduras. On Sept., 21, the Rutland organization was presented with a Classy Award for Excellence in the Humanitarian, Nonprofit Field. Classys are to the charity field what Oscars are to motion picture arts and sciences. Pure Water staff members made the trip to San Diego, Calif., the receive the honor in person.

duras and Haiti. “Being selected as the regional Classy winner is an affirmation of the importance of our work and I hope it helps bring further recognition to the challenges so many communities face,” according to Carolyn Crowley Meub, executive director of Pure Water for the World. Meub’s guiding hand helped create international awareness of the non-profit organization in recent years. She brought her skills and talents—from a successful career in public relations, special events and management, including local political campaigns, and fundraising—to bear on the world stage with Pure Water for the World. “Our program emphasizes education as a critical component of any program trying to provide clean, safe drinking water. We also provide hygiene and sanitation education, parasitic treatment and follow-up monitoring,” she said. Pure Water for the World’s introduction of household sand water filters to remote villages, schools and homes in Haiti and Honduras saved thousands of lives. “Where filters are in use, the crying from stomach pains, death, and poor school attendance are a thing of the past,” Meub said. In addition to sand filters, Pure Water is active in bring low-cost solar pasteurization to its clients. It also sets up rainwater harvesting programs. “In Haiti, Pure Water ’s filter factory employees 30 Haitians, many of whom did not have a decent job before,” Meub said.

Energy efficiency reduces CO2 in Vt.

BURLINGTON — On the day before the Building Performance Professionals Association of Vermont, a newly formed energy efficiency contractor trade association, held its first meeting, Efficiency Vermont provided an update on the recent growth of its Home Performance efforts under the trademarked Energy Star program. Independent contractors working with Efficiency Vermont’s Energy Star, are certified by the new association; they now perform energy audits, diagnose building problems, such as moisture and ice dams, and install recommended energy efficiency improvements. Efficiency Vermont provides training and technical help for both contractors and in-state homeowners. Vermont’s Energy Star program achieved several milestones, so far, in 2012: •The number of active Vermont contractors has increased 75 percent. •Vermont has most (per capita) contractors certified by the Building Performance Institute of any state. •Energy savings in Vermont from Energy Star projects amounted to $1.1 million from electric savings and $30.8 million from heating cost savings. •A large amount of CO2 has been eliminated in the state: 21,824,708 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions eliminated have been attributed to Energy Star products.

More money set aside for green home energy projects By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — The Clean Energy Development Fund announced last week that the Clean Energy Development Fund Board has approved the allocation of an additional $1.25 million to support the installation of solar photovoltaic, solar thermal and small wind energy projects for home owners, communities, and businesses across Vermont through the Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program. The CEDF Board also approved changes to the incentive program design in response to the evolving renewable energy market and comments received from program participants, in order to create more impact and stretch the dollars further. The new funding and program changes are projected to extend the program into early 2013, depending upon the pace of the renewable energy installations qualifying for incentives. Funding for the program and for the CEDF in 2013 is uncertain given the recent lawsuit filed by Entergy challenging the tax legislation that dedicated funding to the CEDF. The CEDF was created by the Vermont legislature in 2005 to increase the development of renewable energy and combined heat and power technologies. The legislature included the incentive program within the CEDF to promote small scale renewable energy investments. Information about the program may be obtained by calling the following toll-free number: 1-877-888-7372.

Utility to turn Eastman property into energy center Downtown site will include offices, energy exhibits

By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — Green Mountain Power ’s plan to turn a blighted downtown Rutland property into a corporate Energy Innovation Center is a major step on the way to transforming Rutland into its anticipated Solar City status Both city and utility officials agree—it’s time for the downtown's largest, empty, and arguably most blighted property to be turned into a tax producing and employment generator. Steve Costello, GMP's vice president for generation and energy innovation, said the parcel will become the home of new Energy Innovation Center, “a place where the company can work with other energy providers and customers to develop new customer programs and choices and learn from a collaborative approach to solving to-

Green Mountain Power President and CEO Mary Powell: “We will create a place in Rutland where customers can learn about energy and the environmental impact of energy decisions. The center will help our customers envision a new world of energy choices.” day's energy challenges. Our analysis shows this site to be the least-cost option, and it will serve us and our customers extremely well."” GMP executives joined

Rutland city officials at a special news conference, held in the Rutland Opera house, announcing the plans Sept. 21. “I am so pleased that we

have secured the former Eastman's property, which was once a cornerstone of downtown but in recent years has weighed heavily on it," said GMP President

and CEO Mary Powell. “We will create a place where customers can learn about energy, generation and the environmental impact of energy decisions, cutting-edge

technologies and new customer programs. The center will help our customers envision a new world of energy choices.” Powell, who was recently dubbed Vermont’s “Green Queen” in a business magazine, seemed to relish the new title. “We expect to make the Energy Innovation Center the birthplace of innovative new ideas for the benefit of our customers across Vermont," she said. “This development is also a key component of the new company's facilities plan to achieve millions of dollars of savings for customers. In restructuring the number and use of its facilities the company will achieve customer-focused fast and efficient operations, as well as reduce the overall square footage consumed for operations.” Powell said the center will act as a catalyst to transform Rutland into a Solar City, the solar-power capital of New England, if not the northeast. Rutland Mayor Christopher Louras (D) expressed pleasure in the plan to develop the derelict site.. “When I think of the challenges facing downtown Rutland, this building is at the top of the list,” Louras said. “It has been in serious decline for years. The EIC will be a fantastic addition to downtown, and will replace a blighted liability with an asset, a building that mixes historic charm and modern thinking. I could not be happier for the city, or for the rest of downtown's business owners.” Rutland-based NBF Architects will spearhead develop of the site with a building that will include office space, displays and interactive educational opportunities. The roof will include a heat pump system and solar, and will be accessible for tours, according to Louras. The foreign-owned utility, which absorbed the former CVPS, expects to finalize architectural work soon; the new facility will be completed a year from now. Powell also said that the new energy center ’s staff will reside in the opera house starting in November and until the Eastman site is ready.

Autumn critters to populate Brandon Harvest Fest Sept. 29 By Lou Varricchio BRANDON — Brandon’s annual Harvest Fest will take place Saturday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m., in Central Park. The theme of this year ’s event is “Making Harvest People”, the folksy, autumnal stick figures, scarecrows and leaf creatures tourists see on display around Vermont this time of year. Visitors to the festival are encouraged to create their own harvest people creations. Members of the Brandon Lions Club, Brandon Rotary Club and St. Mary’s Church will provide hayrides and local foods and beverages for festival goers. Marne Nichols, a long-time Harvest Fest participant, said visitors can make their own harvest figure at the park. “We have all the stuff you need—straw, clothing, personal accessories, even a lesson on how to make the harvest people,” Nichols said. “You make the basic figure and then our volunteer staffers will complete it—or you can do the entire job, if you like.” Nichols said the first harvest figure made is free, then it’s $5 for each additional figure assembled.

Lawmakers discuss fuel assistance projections From News Reports

TEACHER OF THE YEAR — Lisa Rader, who teaches design and illustration and visual communications programs at the Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury, was named the center’s Teacher of the Year last week.

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Joint Fiscal Committee met Sept. 19 to discuss fuel assistance funding. Early projections for the 2012-2013 heating season puts the average fuel assistance benefit at $543 per home. This is compared to the $900 per home average over the previous winter. While federal funding remains the same, last year the state kicked in an additional $6 million. Lawmakers on the committee discussed whether or not to do the same this year, however, no decision was made. While there are changes in the fuel assistance program, what will not change is the current discount for heating oil and propane; It remains 10-cents or the dealers cash discount, whichever is greater. There was talk about increasing the discount, but that is no longer the case. The fuel assistance office will transition to an all digital system this year.

In November, participating fuel dealers will receive a password protected e-mail message with a spreadsheet showing their fuel assistance customers and benefit amount, along with lump sum payment from the fuel assistance office. At the end of the season, dealers will email back a spreadsheet showing how the funds were accounted for. The much discussed web portal and payment after delivery system is delayed for at least another year. Also delayed is a change in the 17 percent rule and crisis fuel deliveries. The existing rule that allows dealers to use 17 percent of the current fuel benefit to pay for a customer ’s back balance will eventually be eliminated, but the change won't take effect until early 2013. Same with the proposal to limit crisis fuel to one delivery if a customer receives seasonal fuel assistance and two deliveries if they do not.

16 - The Eagle

September 29, 2012

October 7th-13th ESTABLISH A HOME FIRE SAFETY PLAN People rely on ďŹ re and smoke detectors to help keep them safe in their homes. Though ďŹ re and smoke alarms are effective, a ďŹ rm ďŹ re safety plan that will keep everyone calm should a ďŹ re occur could make the difference between life and death. The U.S. Fire Administration says that more than 3,500 Americans die each

year in ďŹ res, while roughly 18,300 more men, women and children are injured each year. Cooking accounts for the greatest percentage of residential ďŹ res, followed by arson. Dryer vent ďŹ res are also a big concern. FEMA says that smoke, rather than the ďŹ re’s ames, is responsible for 75 percent of all deaths by ďŹ re.

Creating an evacuation plan doesn’t have to be complicated. Such a plan can be established in a few minutes and then reinforced through practice every so often to keep everyone fresh on what to do. Fire safety is very important. In conjunction with smoke alarms, a ďŹ re safety plan can help everyone get out alive.
