Vermont A cowgirl’s best friend is her pony—and $10,000 Chief Justice visits VUHS By Lou Varricchio

Students of teacher and state representative Greg Clark’s government class at Vergennes Union High School, had a rare opportunity to meet Vermont Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul L. Reiber. Reiber made a special visit to the school on Constitution Day and talked with students and faculty in the school’s library.

Like a growing number of Vermonters, Rosemary Root is passionate about all things equine. Riding horses western-style at a young age, Root eventually transformed her fondness for the genus equus into a profitable business—New Horizons Farm in Essex Junction, Vt. The farm was founded in 1986 and ranks among Vermont’s top horse ranches. Root’s four-acre spread in the foothills of the Green Mountains provides healthy, professional boarding for up to 31 horses, a 63-feet by 160-feet indoor riding area, horseback-riding lessons, clinics, outdoor trails, and just about anything a horse owner—or future horse owner would like.

Both men and women will compete in the unique western event. The Contortionist may sound like an odd name for a horse, but Root believes the name fits. “Oftentimes people see the white ‘A.L.’ initial brand on Contortionist’s hind; they ask what it means. I always say it means ‘Awesome Legs’. Seriously, ‘A.L.’ is the breeder ’s brand, nothing more.”

If the subhead to this story has you asking the question, ‘What the heck is a Parrothead?’, you just missed the party boat to Margaritaville. To get technical in a pop-cultural vein, the term Parrothead was born back in 1985 at an Ohio concert featuring breezy Florida musician Jimmy Buffett. The term of endearment for all Jimmy fans may have been an unconscious response to the older pop-culture term ‘Deadhead’ for a fan of the 1960s rock band the Grate-

ful Dead. Who knows? And who cares? But since Parrothead conjures up balmy Florida breezes, coconut palms, reef surf, dirty feet and flip flops—yes, and cocktail hour, too— the term stuck fast. And a whole generation of laid-back Buffet buffs was unleashed on the music fandom scene. (Note: ‘Parakeet’ is a newer term used for younger fans of Buffet, the children of Parrotheads— and the torch has been passed to a new generation.) According to Bonnie MacPherson, director of public relations at

Everything you always wanted to know about roundabouts, but were afraid to ask By Lou Varricchio Middlebury’s new downtown roundabout—also known as a traffic rotary—has been creating some confusion among drivers uncertain regarding which driver gets the right-ofway—who yields, who stops? A rotary can be a real game of “no, after you, garçon!” Roundabouts are the popular choice for New England towns flush with matching stimulus and other highway funds. According to the New England Traffic Council, at least 12 new roundabouts have been built in two states—Connecticut and Massachusetts—alone recently. So, better get used to navigating these crazy circles of asphalt. According to Kellie Ann Laffert—a former Boston-based roundabout critic who luckily escaped East Coast traffic snares by moving to a new residence in the pristine Arizona desert—roundabouts are just no fun to drive. “I despise roundabouts for many reasons,” Laffert said. “The main one is I lost my business while They closed the road I was located on during the construction process. The second reason is that no one knows how to drive in them.” When I told Laffert my experience of navigating the mad roundabout at the Sagamore Bridge to Cape Cod in Massachusetts, she laughed. “Don’t get me started on that one,” she said. “In Massachusetts no one can hear you scream.”



Well, whether you like them or you hate them, Laffert has pointers on how to navigate roundabouts. New Englanders better get used to the circular things—

they’re here to stay and more of them are planned from Rhode Island to Maine. Westerners have managed to escape the East Coast disease of urban roundaboutitis, so there may be some hope for the rest of the nation where more linear, ‘stop-and-go’ minds still prevail: •”All roundabouts are a yield only: If there is a car in the roundabout already you must yield. The vehicle in the roundabout has the right of way. If there is no car in the roundabout you do not have to stop you can just go. My aggravation is that most cars will stop every time before entering the roundabout. •”Typically the inside lane has the option to go straight of continue around the roundabout you can not turn right in this lane. The outer lane has the option to go straight or turn right it is not an option to continue around the roundabout. •”If it’s a two-lane rotary, stay in your lane. You should not change lanes in a Roundabout it is not safe. This is hard to do especially for large trucks and RVs. My advice is don't be even with one of these vehicles they might accidentally push you to the curb.” Perhaps one idea why New England towns like rotaries, said Laffert, is that they slow down truck traffic and in some cases have forced big truckers to find alternate routes. “Roundabouts are part of the modern, non-linear urban planning mindset,” said Laffert, “and one more reason to despise them. But planning trends have a way of changing. In time, urban planners may discover a bold new concept in traffic flow—the good old-fashioned intersection.”

At the Purdyville Pot Luck


urdyville is way up in a lost corner of Vermont’s NEK, way up, where they’ll never have broadband—I don’t care who the governor is, they’ll never have broadband. Purdyville people think the Internet is the mesh thing sewn into your swimmin’ britches that keeps your stuff from dangling in the water when you’re wadin’ around the swimming hole on Memorial Day going “FWHEeeeee, FWHEeeeee, FWHEeeeee.” Purdyville is far up and out of the way; the American president wouldn’t find it if Osama Bin Laden was standing naked in the middle of the town green peggin’ lit fire crackers at frogs. I guarantee, anyone you ask—be it an old life-long Vermonter, a flatlander genius, an over-the-road vacuum salesman, even a member of Vermont’s 251 club—will not be able to direct you to Purdyville. No one knows where Purdyville is. Almost no one anyways cause, I do. Why do I know where Purdyville is? Two words: good eats. Purdyville gives the best early fall potluck dinner in the universe and solar system. I’ve been going for 17—skip one, then four more—years—straight. Twenty-one total years I been going to the Purdyville Pot luck and counting and I couldn’t be more proud ‘bout it. Best baked beans in the world at the Purdyville Pot Luck cause they bake the beans that are shaped like miniature plump frank furts, that curl up on each side—the big beans, not them little dinky ones no bigger than a M&M. But, you’ll be lucky to have any Purdyville Pot Luck dinner baked beans, cause you ain’t going to find Purdyville, I’d bet. At the Purdyville Pot Luck last Saturday, I see a guy eating alone. A small balled up gnomish guy, wearing worn rubber barn boots, thick green woolen pants, a quilt-lined shirt, and a filthy but supple deer skin vest. His bushy salt and pepper beard presented wonderfully as a work of sculpture; a woven extension of his stringy shoulder length hair that stung like a broom down from under the most beautiful fox hat you ever see. With my full plate, I set down across from the man and started in to sup. “Some hat,” I said, aiming my fork between the ma and pa Pilgrim salt and peppershakers, toward the man’s fox hat. With an accent thick as frozen roof pitch, he spoke. “The hat ‘tiz bin up the addik eveh since. I doan gowup thayaire, ‘fraid a dusst n’ cludder. I’ymabit clahhstrafobic … doan loike smawll areahs,” he said. Eh? He was hard to understand, but well worth the work it took to converse. “I wuz hungree. Tole the ole ladee I wuz headed to et, to a Pot Luck dinnir, I tole er. She sed ‘hoew long yew be?’ Tole er I didn’t know, tole er the dinnir was in Purdyville. She said, ‘Waire the fox hat!’” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

Voting other folks’ money I

t’s been a while—34 years—since the last major change to the American voting process: in 1976 Nevada put a “none-of-the-above” line on its ballot, a change which has had zero impact on ballot layout in the other 49 states. Here’s my proposal which probably would do even worse, but is worth pondering: the weighted ballot. My idea is based on the historical understanding of human nature which is the underlying theme of such quotes as Benjamin Franklin’s “When the people find that they can vote themselves [other peoples’] money, that will be the end of the Republic.” Such voting succeeds when the redistribution recipients are more than 50 percent of the electorate, which they appear to be in 2010. This problematic aspect of “democracy”—or majority politics—isn’t a new one. Some researchers trace the notion back to 18th-century Scottish writer Alexander Tytler. Tyler supposedly used the phrase, “… A majority which discovers it can vote itself largesse from the public treasury… ”,; some cite a similar 19th-century Alexis de Toqueville quote. Even 20th century U.S. Ag Sec. Ezra Taft Benson has been credited, right up there alongside 5th century B.C. Greek philosopher Plato. In American history, the ancient principle of vote-selling was decried by the LaFollette Republicans, who were so offended by 19th century Chicago ward-heeler politics that they established Progressivism, originally a concept of government by experts (themselves, of course) brighter than your average stupid and venal voter—ah, but then it was employed by modern Vermont Progressive politicians in the design of Act 60, a school tax proposal which encourages a majority of home-owners, via an income-sensitivity tax-increase exemption, to approve increases in educational spending they, personally, won’t be required to pay. It takes a non-Progressive to make this Platonic point: voting yourself OPM (other peoples’ money) is less honorable than voting to pay your own “fair share” (a little Progressive lingo, there) of the costs of the collective enterprise being proposed. Typically, those who get their own paychecks by expending a lot of time proposing, administering, or even executing such things are enthusiasts for seeing themselves as deserving OPM destinations. But this isn’t an argument for full vote denial on such self-interest tainted matters. It is a limited argument for vote weighting: specifically, that those who stand to enhance their own paycheck—from a voteable public budget question—should have their votes count for somewhat less than those who will pay full freight. It’s similar to shareholder voting—where those who have invested more in the enterprise through the purchase of, say, 100 shares, have twice the voting power of those who chose to invest less and own only 50 shares. But it’s dissimilar to shareholder voting in that it doesn’t deny voting to non-investors, those who get benefits from the enterprise but don’t invest in it. Even tax-minusses are entitled to a weighted vote, I’d argue, because they pay a little something for government indirectly through sales taxes and part of their rent—even though they don’t ever send a real check to the IRS or the state department of taxes. As for those whose spending and rent money comes not from real personal earnings but from real taxpayers via government (with a little skimmed off the top for “management”, of course), a pure application of weighted voting would invoke the no-pay-no-play principle: those who don’t support government don’t get to vote.

But I’d argue for less than purity of principle on my political calculation: weighted voting is already so threatening and offensive in concept to both the voting bloc of largesse recipients and the Progressive elites dependent on their votes that only a diluted version would have a chance at survival of criticism of the Founding Fathers’ Constitution. You might call my proposal gradualism, the same practical tactic advocated in Fabian socialism where multiple tiny steps toward elite governance have better prospects for eventual success than a single fundamental transformation (to borrow a recently invoked Obamian phrase). This could start—as a trial run—with that still-barely surviving old-Vermont tradition, the annual school budget vote. I say “barely” because a statewide grass-roots movement a few years back toward the Australian ballot (useable by the voter/taxpayer types who actually hold a private-sector day job and can’t tolerate the deliberately late-into-thenight Vermont rituals which the traditional voice vote-byattenders-only meeting has become). This was bitterly resisted by the same folks who normally advocate for everyone voting— early and often—on the grounds that “no residency proof is needed, you have to be there for the entire meeting to appreciate the wisdom of our spending proposals, and then you get to vote.” Much to our surprise, the campaign for activists-and-educators-only-voting has been largely rejected in most of the Vermont towns which have adopted the Australian ballot. Ok, for starters I’d propose that those who pay full freight under Act 60 and Son-of-60 (Act 68) have their school budget votes weighted more heavily than those—the majority of residential property owners , as 60 and 68 were skillfully designed to buy educational-spending support— who are exempted from paying full freight by the incomesensitivity provisions of the legislation. This model is visible in corporate governance where we who own only, say, 100 shares of Entergy Corp. are out-voted, as we should be, by those who have more skin-in-the-game (and have invested more of their own money to own more of their own shares). I’d go with Constitutional precedent and suggest the 3/5 fraction: those pulling the wagon should have 3/5 more say-so about its destination than those riding in it. Ex-U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm’s comments are still being cited by today’s Gentry-Left (check out the current webpage of American Prospect magazine which features a year-old oped characterizing them as “racial demagoguery”). The Left enjoy the power stemming from the solid voting support from riders, even as it loses them the soon-to-be-permanent-minority puller vote. It would be fun to see what 21st-century language would be deployed against the 18th-century Constitutional exercise in fractions—even if that exercise was originally employed not for vote-weighting but for population-counting. Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

Time, space and absolution A few months ago we examined time as it relates to space. We return to the subject once again. Albert Einstein’s calculations regarding the speedof-light axiom demonstrated one rule of the universe that cannot be violated: time is not absolute. There’s no such thing as a Greenwich Mean Time in space; television sci-fi producer Gene Roddenberry’s fictional dream of a universal stardate calendar is an impossibility, too (well, you’d have to find an energy field that exists—instantly— throughout space to get around Einstein’s no absolute time rule). Regarding Einstein’s calculations, two observers in space cannot synchronize their on-board clocks to a standard time. The two observers, separated in space, are also separated in time; they cannot see both clocks showing synchronized time. Thus, the two clocks will never be in agreement—well, unless both observers and their clocks occupy the same space in time. The accuracy of atomic clocks is frequently touted to be accurate to within 0.000000001 or 10 -9 of a second (a billionth) or more. Sounds wonderful, except for the fact that the accuracy works only when an observer is standing alongside the clock. Move away from the atomic clock, and light will affect the observed and the instrument’s accuracy will begin to drift. One example frequently cited regarding atomic clocks and absolute time is to place a clock and an observer at opposite ends—at the goal posts on a football field. The billionth of a second accuracy of the atomic clock in the football stadium will appear less accurate when measured by the observer at the opposite goal post. The drift may be a microsecond or 1,000 billionths of a second in time. Ok, sounds like splitting hairs, you might be mutter-

ing—but over vast distances the accuracy drift becomes, well, astronomical. If you leave the atomic clock at the football goal post and then rocket the observer to the Moon—250,000 miles away—the clock’s accuracy drift will show 1.33 By Lou Varricchio seconds. Still hairsplitting, you say? Now imagine moving the observer out through the solar system, past Pluto, and on into the mysterious Kuiper Belt region of comets and ice asteroids—and beyond. Atomic clocks become the final arbiters of Einstein’s calculations about the lack of absolute time in our universe. Can anything travel faster-than-light (FTL) to get around the limits of keeping absolute time in space? Maybe but only on a quantum level. Some experiments since the 1980s have demonstrated that FTL may be possible, but only across amazingly short, quantum distances. To move large amounts of data or humans in a spacecraft FTL will remain in the realm of science fiction for the foreseeable future.

Bourdeau & Bushey: A major player in Vt. ag

By Lou Varricchio James Bushey started Bourdeau and Bushey, Inc along with Germain and Remi Bourdeau in 1982. The firm’s location on Seymour Street in Middlebury was formerly owned by Ralston Purina, and then by Wayne Feeds, before they bought it in 1982. Bourdeau and Bushey’s motto is “We care for your land and animals”— they do just that by providing essential services to area farmers. Bourdeau and Bushey, Inc. is primarily a dairy agricultural business, providing dairy farmers with the services and products to run their farms successfully. They do this by providing soil and feed testing in addition to spreading fertilizer and lime and providing feed. They also provide plant protection aids, and help farmers to effectively use their soil to produce the best crops. A few weeks ago, the company hosted a major ag event that attracted farmers, suppliers and others involved with Vermont agribusiness. This is an annual event but it is growing. Another event, in the new year, will gather the agribusiness community together again. The company, named an Addison County Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Month in 2007, has won numerous awards for their involvement in both the community and with local farmers from organizations such as the Future Farmers of America, and Pioneer Seeds.

Tour de Farms: a success

Why closing Vt. Yankee is a bad idea T

To the editor: Another Tour de Farms has come and gone. 567 bike riders of all ages celebrated a glorious day of touring farms and tasting a variety of delicious local foods in Shoreham and Orwell. Then riders gathered at the Shoreham green to enjoy Apple Fest, a harvest festival of local foods, beverages, crafts and music. The Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN) would like to thank the following local businesses and community organizations for their hard work, generosity and enthusiasm without whom we simply could not produce the Tour: Vermont Trade Winds Doolittle Farm Golden Russet Farm North Branch Farm Vermont Cookie Love Champlain Orchards Stonewood Farm Red Sky Farm Market Shoreham Winery Millborne Farm The Town of Shoreham The Friends of the Platt Memorial Library The Shoreham Congregational Church The Shoreham Inn The Addison County Regional Planning Commission Vermont Emergency Management volunteers Shoreham First Response Squad volunteers The Tour and Apple Fest volunteers If you would like to continue to support our local growers year-round, please visit the Addison County directory of growers at Thank you.

Bristol junk To the editor: My daughter and son-in-law live on Route 116 in Bristol and have a beautiful lawn; they work hard at keeping it that way. I fine it ironic that they received a letter from Mr. Stetson telling them to remove two tires from their upper lawn when they are surrounded by junk places. East Street in town is full of junk... and has been for years. Mr. Stetson needs to get these eyesore places cleaned up. Maybe he should go and pick up the two tires? They’re free.

here is no question that Vermont Yankee offers Vermonters a good financial deal: plenty of lowcost power, more than 1,000 jobs and over $15 million annually in government revenue.

LST-31, county namesake, made World War II history USS Addison County (LST-31) was an LST-1-class tank landing ship built for the United States Navy during World War II. Named for Addison County, Vt., she was the only U.S. Naval vessel to bear the name. LST-31 was laid down on 2 February 1943 at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by the Dravo Corporation; launched on 5 June 1943; sponsored by Mrs. Maurice Endres; accepted by the Navy and placed in reduced commission on 10 July 1943; and sailed to New Orleans where she was placed in full commission on 21 July 1943 with Lieutenant John D. Schneidau, Jr., USNR, in command. The new tank landing ship got underway on 29 July for Panama City, Florida where she conducted a series of beaching exercises. LST-31 returned to New Orleans on 7 August to take on cargo for transportation to the Pacific. After a brief port call at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba the vessel transited the Panama Canal in August and joined the Pacific Fleet. She then continued on to San Diego, California where she arrived in September. After participating in beaching exercises in the San Diego area, the ship stopped at Port Hueneme and at San Francisco, California to take on cargo. She left the west coast on 15 October bound for Hawaii, reached Pearl Harbor on the 25th, and began unloading. When this task was completed, LST-31 again weighed anchor in November and shaped a course for the Gilbert Islands. As a member of 5th Amphibious Force, the ship was slated to take part in the assault on Makin Island. LST-31 arrived off Makin and began discharging troops and cargo ashore. She remained off that atoll until 3 December, when she got underway to return to Pearl Harbor. Shortly after her arrival, the vessel entered the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard for repairs and alterations. While her engines were being overhauled, additional 40-millimeter and 20-millimeter guns were installed. The yard period ended in early

January 1944, and the refurbished vessel then took part in training exercises off Maui in preparation for the forthcoming invasion of the Marshall Islands. The tank landing ship left Pearl Harbor on 19 January and set a course for Kwajalein. She anchored off that atoll on 1 February and began discharging her cargo in support of operations in the Marshalls. In February, the ship began embarking troops for the invasion of Eniwetok and, five days later, sortied with LST Group 8. She beached at Eniwetok on the 20th and began landing her soldiers and discharging cargo ashore. LST-31 remained there until March 20, when she got underway for Hawaii. She stopped en route at Kwajalein and Tarawa to take on cargo and passengers and finally reached Pearl Harbor on April 15. Following repairs in drydock there, she resumed operations on 10 May with a series of training exercises in Hapuna Bay, Hawaii. On the 25th, LST-31 left Hawaiian waters, bound for Eniwetok. Upon her arrival at that atoll on June 7, she refueled and took on cargo in preparation for operations against Saipan. The vessel arrived off Saipan on 14 June and began discharging troops and supplies ashore. She cleared the area on the 23rd and returned to Eniwetok to replenish her cargo. LST-31 arrived back at Saipan on July 17; unloaded supplies and small craft; and, during the next few weeks, served as a hospital ship. At night, she anchored off Saipan to receive casualties and was underway off Tinian during daylight hours. This assignment occupied the ship through August, when she began a round-trip voyage to Eniwetok. After returning to Saipan, the vessel underwent three days of voyage repairs and got underway in September for the west coast of the United States. En route, she touched at Eniwetok; Apamama and Makin Islands, Gilbert Islands; and Pearl Harbor. She left the lat-

ter port on 6 November and reached San Francisco on Nov. 17, 1944. After one day in port there, LST-31 sailed to San Pedro to enter the West Coast Shipbuilding Company yards for extensive alterations and repairs. The ship left the yard in early February 1945, conducted sea trials, and arrived at the Mare Island Navy Yard, Vallejo, California on 18 February to take on an amphibious craft. She then visited Seattle, Washington for additional repair work. On 10 March, the vessel got underway for Hawaii and reached Pearl Harbor on the 23rd. LST-31 left Hawaii on April 4 for Okinawa. She embarked passengers and loaded supplies at Eniwetok and Guam before proceeding on to the Rykys and anchoring in waters off southwestern Okinawa on May 3. She remained in the area for approximately three weeks providing logistic support to troops fighting on Okinawa. The ship arrived at Ulithi on 28 May; took on cargo; and in June, set a course for the island of

LST-31, USS Addison County, Vt. Leyte in the Philippines. During the months of June, July, and August, LST-31 operated between the Philippines and Okinawa, transporting supplies and troops between the two points to build up Okinawa as a base

for the conquest of the Japanese home islands. However, this invasion was obviated when Japan capitulated on Aug. 15. The ship then began moving occupation troops and equipment to Japan from various points

in the Philippines. She first arrived in Japanese waters on Sept. 15, when she dropped anchor in Tokyo Bay. On Nov. 30, LST-31 was assigned to duty in Japan with the 5th Fleet, Amphibious Group 11, LST Flotilla 35. However, these orders were superseded late in December; and the ship was slated for decommissioning. She was scheduled to be turned over to the Japanese merchant marine to be manned by a Japanese crew under American control for use in repatriating Japanese citizens and shuttling supplies between Japanese ports. After the ship was stripped of all armament and other wartime equipment, LST-31 was decommissioned on 8 January 1946 and transferred to the Japanese. The vessel operated under Japanese control into May 1948, when she was returned to U.S. Naval custody. She left Yokohama on the 3rd of that month and shaped a course for the west coast of the United States. The tank landing ship was later berthed in the Seattle area. Her name was struck from the Naval Vessel Register in August 1955 and she was subsequently sunk as a target.

Visit From page 1 Reiber ’s presentation on “We the People” started with students defining good and bad labels as they relate to judges—most thought fairness important while others thought activism good with others not in agreement. “Judges have a high bar set for standards,” Reiber said. “We must protect the rights of the minority over the majority and sometimes there are unpopular decisions.” Reiber stressed the need for judicial independence despite the robe tugging by politics, special interests and activists. “Independent courts are vital to our state and nation,” Reiber told students. Reiber told a story about his first run-in with the legal system as a teenager in the 1960s. He was a passenger in an automobile operated by a friend. The friend was pulled over for speeding and the young Reiber was ordered to appear in court and testify. “It was difficult for me,” he said. “On the one hand the

driver was my friend, but on the other hand I was sworn to tell the truth.” During the ordeal, Reiber felt the judge was biased because he was a friend of the teen driver ’s family. The experience made an indelible mark on Reiber and helped propel him into a legal career. Reiber told students about a famous 1996 New York legal case in which a judge reversed himself in a high profile drug case. “The judge had thrown out a videotaped confession,” Reiber said. “He even excluded 75 pounds of cocaine from the evidence. Needless to say, this case sparked debate, outrage and classroom discussions.” Reiber said Vermont judges will be reaching out more to the public. The VUHS presentation was a trial run, so to speak, of a public program Reiber will be presenting to schools and community groups around the state. “‘We the People’ starts with you and me,” Reiber said.

Otter trio amass 396 yards By Fred Pockette Peter Batista, Nate Fitzgerald and Keke Frye led a deadly ground attack last Saturday, in Rutland, that amassed 396 yards on 32 carries (12.8 yards per carry) leading the Otter Valley Otters to a 55-8 thumping of the hometown Mount Saint Joseph Mounties. Batista had touchdown runs of five and 22 yards. He also had a 32-yard interception return for another TD. Frye, whose 84 yard TD scamper was the longest of the day, added a 6 yard scoring run. Fitzgerald (seven yards) and Lance Schu (nine yards) added touchdown runs to the onslaught. Quarterback Zak Williams attempted just one pass and he completed it ti Jimmy Winslow for 11 yards. Kicker Pike Ladigo nailed seven of his eight extra point attempts on a day where everything seemed to go right for the boys from Brandon. MSJ, who fell to 0-4 with the loss, scored their only touchdown on an eleven yard pass from Collin Gilbert to Josiah Corlew. Otter Valley improved to 2-2 overall on the year. On the same afternoon in Clarendon the Mill River Minutemen turned five turnovers by the Winooski Spartans into a 53-22 Division III high school football win. Five fumbles

led to five Mill River touchdowns. Derrick Mashteare-Guilmette added two rushing touchdowns to the victory. Spartan quarterback Devin Rollins rushed for one touchdown himself and hit Jalen Miller on a TD pass for another score. Meanwhile, in Poultney the Fair Haven Slaters outscored the Poultney Blue Devils 28-7 in the second half to roll to a 35-14 win. Cody Bardin led the Slater attack with three rushing touchdown. Levin Ellis scored the remaining two Slater Tds. He had a forty-yard interception return, and he caught a ten yard touchdown pass, thrown by quarterback Robert Colutti. Tyler Rice had touchdown runs of 3 and 2 yards in defeat for the Poultney Blue Devils. Fair Haven improved to 2-2 with the road win.

Rockets Blast Horde Daley Crowley and Paityn Boyer both scored to lead their Rochester Rockets to a 2-1 win in girls high school soccer this past Saturday, in West Rutland, over the hometown Golden Horde. Rochester controlled the contest, and the outcome could have been much worse had it not been for the effort by West Side goalie Amanda Harte. Harte kept the Golden Horde in the game until the end by stopping 18 blasts by the Rockets. Morgan Raiche assisted Sam Lacz for West Rut-

land’s lone score. The Golden Horde, who are still seeking their first victory, fell to 0-6 on the year.

Lake Monsters The Vermont Lake Monsters and Oakland Athletics have signed a two-year Player Development Contract (PDC) for the 2011 and 2012 seasons, the two teams announced today. The agreement means that Vermont will be the New YorkPenn League affiliate for Oakland after the Lake Monsters had been partners with the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals franchise for 17 years dating back to Vermont’s first season in 1994 (the Nationals moved their NY-Penn League affiliation to the Auburn Doubledays on Tuesday). The Athletics short-season Single-A team had been located in Vancouver, British Columbia since the 2000 season, but Toronto and the Vancouver Canadians recently signed a four-year PDC moving the Blue Jays short-season team from Auburn to Vancouver of the Northwest League. The Lake Monsters will begin their 18th New York-Penn League season in June 2011. Season tickets can be purhased now online at, by phone at 802-655-4200 or in person at the Lake Monsters front office at the top of the King Street Ferry Dock.

MUHS Tigers soundly defeat BUHS 55-14! By Bob Chatfield The Middlebury Union High football team continued to roll in week four of the high school football season with a 55-14 thrashing of winless Brattleboro Union High. It was a different story for the Mount Abraham Union High 11 as they remained winless at home after being crushed 46 to 6 by BFA Fairfax.

Middlebury 55, Brattleboro 14 This one was over almost as soon as it began. The Tigers scored on three of their first four offense plays in rolling to the win in front of a large homecoming crowd. Senior quarterback Brendan Burrell got things rolling. With the Tigers taking the ball over on the Colonels 38, following a pass interception on the first series of the game, Burrell rolled around the right side of the line and sprinted

untouched for the first score of the night. The Tigers then got scoring jaunts of 54 and 47 yards in jumping out to the 21-0 lead with 4:42 left in the first quarter. Hastings added a 25-yard touchdown run, while Bryan Ashley-Selleck, Jordan Connor and Mitchell Velancey chipped in touchdown scampers of 15, 23 and 22 yards in pushing the lead to 48-6 by the end of the first half. The Tigers are on the road this week as they travel south to take on Mount Anthony Union High under the lights in Bennington on Friday night. They will then come home for a huge Division II contest as they take on Champlain Valley Union High on Friday Oct. 8.

BFA46, MAUHS 6 This was actually close for most of the first half. Quarterback Andrew Barden gave BFA and early lead as he capped a 70-yard drive for the Bullets with a 12-yard touchdown run at the 5:38 of the first quarter. The Eagles came right back

with a 55-yard drive of their own with Geoffrey Grant bulling in from six-yard out to tie the game three minutes later. But it as pretty much down hill from there. A Barden to Kris Wehner three-yard touchdown pass snapped the tie early in the second quarter. After the Bullets recovered a Eagle fumble on the Mount Abe 24 Barden hooked up with Brandon Bates on another scoring strike to pushed the lead to 19-6. BFA got the ball to start the second half and went 60-yards in six plays. This time Barden and fullback Robert Bannister capped things off with hooking up on a screen pass that went 34 yards for a score that pushed the lead to 25-6. BFA rolled from there to the lopsided win. Bannister led a punishing running game for BFA totting the ball 10 times for 97-yards. The Bullets actually had 11 people with at least one carry in racking up over 250 yards on the ground. The Eagles, who picked up their first win of the season at MSJ the week before, will try and turn things around hosting Mill River Union High this Saturday. .

Pony From page 1 Reed points out that Contortionist’s white-colored brand was made by using liquid nitrogen, a less painful method of horse branding compared to hot branding done in the old west. According to Root, Project Cowboy will be held Oct. 8- 10 at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas. She first learned about the event when a friend and horse trainer Jack Brainerd, and a Project Cowboy judge, mentioned it to her. What would happen if John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck, Dale Evans and Annie Oakley all competed in a reality show format to be crowned the best cowboy? Brainerd told Root that organizers plan to cram a season of “American Idol” into three days, and that fans will be entertained and awed. Well, Brainerd thought, Root could be one of the candidates—however, he cautioned her that friends of judges will get treated a tad harsher than other competitors. “Well, that’s ok,” Root said. “I am doing this because it will be fun. Project Cowboy is a competition open to all horsemen and women demonstrating exceptional horsemanship, communication skills, and that live by the western lifestyle. That’s fun, but I will also be competing for $10,000 cash, a Martin trophy saddle and a Gist trophy buckle. If all goes well, it will also include an invitation to appear at the 2011 Road to the Horse Legends World Championship and Extreme Mustang Makeover Events, even other major equine events and expos.” Getting ready for the big Texas showdown has Root feeling just a tad anxious. On top of that, she is preparing for a live broadcast interview about Project Cowboy with radio station WOKO in Vermont. “I have a lot to do to get ready before making the long drive to Texas with Contortionist in the trailer,” she said. “I am not certain of what the panelists will ask me to do. So I

SATURDAY October 2, 2010

have to be prepared to perform in whatever way the judges want me to.” But a few things Root can be certain of in Texas—riding a horse in the American western tradition means she will have to show expertise in riding, opening and closing corral gates, as well as razzle-dazzle when assembling her cowgirl riding attire. At home, Root’s cute dog P.J. often runs alongside horse and rider like a true range pardoner. But in the professional arena, P.J. won’t be permitted to play trail boss—yes, it’s move along little doggie. Project Cowboy features several rounds of competition that will challenge the horsemanship and communication skills of Root and the other competitors. “All 175 competitors, riding their own horses, will be challenged to showcase their talents in a pen and on the screen,” she said. “Elimination rounds will progress by offering us more diverse and challenging obstacles to prove who will receive the title of the Great American Horseman.” While Root has performed in front of audiences, she’ll find a television camera at Project Cowboy something new and different. “My idea is to have fun,” Root said. “Many times equine competitors lose sight of the fun aspects. Yes, competition is serious business but it must first be fun. You have to enjoy what you do first.”

Addison County in a nutshell From it’s beginning, Addison County, Vt., has been a landscape rich in natural resources and populated by rugged individuals. Today, it is a rural-suburb for many exurbanites who have fled more densely populated areas in the northereastern U.S. Iroquois first settled Addison County before European arrived in 1609. French at Crown Point extended their settlements across Lake Champlain to what is now Chimney Point. A few individuals or families came up the lake from Canada and established themselves at Chimney Point in 1730. In 1731, Fort Frederic was erected across the lake narrows. In 1759, General Amherst occupied what would become Fort Crown Point and British settlers began arriving. This county was established by act of the Vermont Legislature Oct. 18, 1785 at the period of Vermont Republic. In 1791, Vermont joined the federal union after the original 13 colonies. The main product of the county was wheat. In addition to wheat, farmers began to raise flocks on the field for manuring around 1820s. The Champlain Canal was opened on 1823, so the ships could navigate from the Hudson river. In 1840, the county produced more wool than any other county in the United States. When Vermon was finally admitted into the Union in 1791, in the major towns there were totally 9,267 people. By 1830, there were 26,503 people in the fledgling state. In 2008, the federal government declared Addison County a disaster area after severe storms and flooding hit the area June 14-17. At the 2000 census, there were 35,974 people, 13,068 households and 9,108 families residing in the county. The population density was 47 per square mile. There were 15,312 housing units at an average density of 20 per square mile. The racial makeup of the county remains 96.86 percent White, 0.54 percent Black or African American, 0.26 percent Native American, 0.73 percent Asian, 0.03 percent Pacific Islander, 0.29 percent from other races, and 1.29% from two or more races. Only 1.10 percent of the population were Hispanic or Latino. Of the county’s 13,068 households in 2000, 34.40 percent had children under the age of 18 living with them, 57.40 percent were married couples living together, 8.30 percent had a female householder with no husband present, and 30.30 percent were non-families. 23.40 percent of all households were made up of individuals and 8.90 percent had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.55 and the average family size was 3.02. Age distribution was 24.90 percent under the age of 18, 12.50 percent from 18 to 24, 26.90 percent from 25 to 44, 24.30 percent from 45 to 64, and 11.30 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 36 years. For every 100 females there were 97.70 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 95.40 males. The median household income was $43,142, and the median family income was $49,351. Males had a median income of $31,836 versus $24,416 for females. The per capita income for the county was $19,539. About 5.10 percent of families and 8.60% of the population were below the poverty line, including 9.10% of those under age 18 and 8.00 percent of those age 65 or over. And there you have it—a look at Addison County in a nutshell.

Eden? Well, sort of—maybe. Single and feeling like you’d like to take a bite of the apple this autumn? Well, the apple harvest will wrap up at picturesque Shelburne Orchards with a singles event targeting the farm and food enthusiast crowd. On Oct. 16 at Shelburne Orchards, the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont will be hosting the final Weed Dating event of the season. The apple event is inspired by the speed-dating phenomenon, which joins eligible singles together for cocktails and quick dates. Weed Dating is a whimsical and dressed-down version of this event in which interested individuals get their hands dirty helping area farmers while connecting with like-minded neighbors. Attendees will receive a tour of Shelburne Orchards and assist in strip-picking apple trees. Fruit harvested during the event will be donated to the Vermont Food Bank. Farm experience is not required and all are welcome. Pre-registration is required and donations will be accepted. For more information or to register call 802-434-4122.

Stay fire smart! Don’ t get burned

Fire is enemy number one for firemen, at least when a fire ravages a house, a car or a forest. Fire Prevention Week, from October 4 to 10, is an ideal moment to educate the general public on how a fire can start and how to prevent them from occurring once fall arrives. For a fire to break out, it needs four different elements: a source of heat, which can come from any kind of friction such as a match being struck, an electrical arc or a short circuit; a fuel, which is anything combustible such as wood, gasoline or a plastic material; oxygen; and free radicals produced during the combustion. If only one of these elements is missing, a fire cannot develop. By following a few tips this fall we can all avoid combining these four destructive elements: 1. Store pool products in a safe place, in a shed, away from other products which are stored there. 2. Put away the BBQ in a sheltered spot with a protective covering. Remove the propane tank and put it behind the shed, in an upright position and out of the reach of children. 3. Store the gas reservoir for the lawnmower, with the cap screwed tightly on, in the shed, well away from the pool products. 4. Store the firewood outside, away from the house. 5. Split the wood into small logs. This way they’ ll burn more cleanly, being exposed to the flames over a larger surface area. 6. Have the home’ s heating appliance checked by a professional. 7. Check to ensure that all the smoke alarms are in working order.

A fire extinguisher can put out the beginnings of a fire in the home, in the car, at work or in the garage. So take advantage of Fire Prevention Week to learn more about the ins and outs of this tool which can be really useful in the event of a fire. Mobile extinguishers are useful in or near rooms which contain fire risks, so installing them in clear view in the kitchen, the basement and the garage is an excellent idea. We should also be aware that the use of a mobile extinguisher is limited to the control of a small fire. No matter how small the fire, the fire dept. should always be alerted. And when the fire starts spreading, the area should be evacuated immediately. Have the extinguishers checked every year by a specialist following the manufacturer’ s directions.
