1820 bridge to get face-lift
Families get more access to produce grown in the area By Lou Varricchio
By Lou Varricchio
BURLINGTON—U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) announced two taxpayer funded grants totaling $165,555 for the Gr een Mountain Farm Direct and the Northeast Or ganic Farming Association to expand access to locally produced food for V ermont seniors, low-income families and others. “These worthwhile projects will increase Vermonters’ access to fr esh, healthy, locally pr oduced foods,” Sanders said. Green Mountain Farm Direct is slated to r eceive $97,029 to build a mobile farmers market that will deliver fresh foods to senior meal sites, low-income housing sites, and community centers. The mobile market—a big bus equipped with r efrigeration and a pr ep kitchen—will travel to local farms to buy food and make deliveries to senior meal sites, low-income housing facilities, and community centers throughout the region. The Northeast Or ganic Farming Association based in Richmond will re ceive $68,526 to expand the use of debit car ds and electronic benefit car ds at Vermont farmers markets. The pr oject alr eady has helped 37 farmers markets throughout the state. The additional funding will expand the project to eight more markets. Roadside farm stands also could be added to the project. Sanders’ backing helped Vermont win the funds through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farmers Market Pr omotion pr ogram. Futur e funds to mor e V ermont growers may be in the offing, accor ding to the USDA.

MIDDLEBURY—The 1820 Pulp Mill Covered Bridge will get a major facelift next summer. Middlebury and W eybridge town officials said the ailing wooden bridge will be extensively r ehabilitated, including fixing 19th-century design errors. The constr uction pr oject, scheduled for 2012 will cost $2.6 million. Constr uction will create some traffic snarls for commuters using the bridge which connects Middlebury and Weybridge. The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and is called a Burr-arch bridge. Just prior to the Civil W ar, the original Burr ar ches wer e r emoved, and laminated ones added to King post tr usses, changing the bridge type to a King post with Burr ar ch design, accor ding to Benjamin and June Evans, authors of the definitive study of antiuq spans “New England's Cover ed Bridges.” This bridge has many distinctions, according to the authors. “It is one of only seven double-barr eled (two lane) cover ed bridges in the country , one of only two in the State of Vermont (the Museum Cover ed Bridge being the other , and the only still carrying regular traffic. It is also the oldest covere d bridge in Vermont, and one of the oldest in the country ,” according to the Evans. see BRIDGE, page 10
Bristol fire investigated By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com BRISTOL — On Oct. 12, at appr oximately 7 p.m., the Bristol Fire Department responded to a house fir e at 4817 Route 116 in Bristol.

Say goodbye to Middlebury teepees
By Emmie Donadio
firstname.lastname@example.org MIDDLEBURY—Artist Patrick Dougherty , whose enchanting community cr eated sculptural pr oject, titled “So Inclined”, has embellished the Route 30 entrance to Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts for the past four years, will return to campus on Oct. 28. Dougherty will discuss his world-wide projects and commissions since that time in a 4:30 p.m. talk in Room 221 of the Mahaney Center for the Arts. The lecture is fr ee and open to the public.
Dougherty’s site-specific sculpture at Middlebury was constr ucted over thr ee weeks in September 2007. It r epresents the collaboration of mor e than twohundred and 30 volunteers, from elementary school children to college studio artists and adult community members fr om Addison County and beyond. T o cr eate the sculpture, silver maple and grey dogwood saplings were harvested from nearby Weybridge. Like all of Dougherty’s projects, “So Inclined” was understood to be a temporary structure from its inception. Once dismantled, the sculpture materials will be recycled into compost, and returned to the earth as a

Vermont’s real-estate prognosis: some good news
ationwide, the residential real estate market remains flat if not bleak, but there are some regional areas where the patient seems to be slowly recovering. Here in Vermont, two such recovering patients appear to be Chittenden and Addison counties. In V ermont, the r eal-estate outlook is rosier than most places, but it is r osiest in these two counties. Of course, if you live there and your home hasn’t sold yet, you may have a different opinion, but according to the Coldwell Banker Bill Beck Real Estate office in Middlebury , thir d quarter unit sales—across the r eal estate boar d—in Addison County posted “some impr essive gains.” What’s the reason for Beck’s encouraging report card? “Compared to the same time frame last year,” Beck reports in his quarterly “Market Update” newsletter, “Addison County sales were up 18 percent, (and) Chittenden County up 37 per cent and Rutland County up 9 percent. Statewide, sales were up 24 percent for the third quarter, but up only 2 per cent for the first nine months.” Beck admits Vermont’s first quarter was lackluster but these new indicators are very encouraging to sellers and buyers alike. “The market seems to be going in the right direction,” Beck notes.
Looking at Addison County, Beck reports 40 sales in just the first few weeks of October. He considers this “very comfortable.” Let’s hope this trend line remains on the up tick with the caveat of knowing that the fourth quarter is not a very busy time for real estate agents in Vermont. Beck r eports prices have moved up, which is very good news for sellers (maybe not so good news for bar gain hunters). In Addison County, for example, the average unit sale price is $266,946 with the media at $242,000. “Those numbers are considerably higher than the year -end totals for 2010 when the average sale was $235,388 and the median price was $21 1,000,” Beck’s newsletter r eports. But not unexpectedly, “upper end” sales in the county accounted for 2011’s most encouraging news. During the first three quarters this year , ther e wer e 24 sales over $400,000 with only 12 the year befor e. The bigger, the fancier the home, or so it appears, the mor e likely it is to sell—at least in Addison County. So, let’s get a jump start on New Year ’s Eve and raise our glasses to toast the newborn fourth quarter in local real estate; may she be as encouraging as the first three. Louis Varricchio

My dinner with Isaac
n the autumn of 1978, I had the rare privilege of dining with the late, award-winning science fiction author and biochemist Dr. Isaac Asimov (author of such classics as “The Foundation Trilogy,” “I Robot” and “Fantastic Voyage”). This once-in-a-lifetime engagement was arranged through hosts and friends Jack and Lottie Robbins of Allentown, Pa. Knowing about my passion for science fiction and science fact, the couple invited me to break bread with them as well as meet one of the pillars of sci-fi’s Golden Age. Jack had been a member of the Futurians with Asimov, that iconic New York group of 1930s sciencefiction fans which included Asimov, Fr ederick Pohl, Damon Knight, James Blish, Cyril Kornbluth—to name a few. So, over the years, Jack had maintained his friendship with Asimov. While some Futurians never became writers (like Jack), many did. Jack—who like Asimov was also an accomplished scientist (a chemist)—saw his old pal once a year. In 1978, he invited Asimov to dine at their Allentown home. Then, the Robbins called me with their invitation. Weeks passed and finally the day arrived; the great author was in town. There are a few details about the meeting that escape me 33 years on—such as the exact date of the dinner and what I was wearing. Asimov didn’t drive, so a friend dr ove the author from New York City toAllentown. Lottie served r oast beef (which I r emember). Jack, Lottie, Isaac, the driver friend, and I exchanged pleasantries. Asimov loved to talk and joke about himself—and why not? The gr eat man was the author and editor of over 500 published books from science fiction to history. After dinner I br ought up an Asimov science article I had enjoyed reading; it was titled “How Far Will We Go in Space?” I wondered if, when the author wr ote it back in 1965, he had anticipated the rise of the un-

manned interplanetary Mariners, Pioneers, Vikings, and Voyagers. He hadn’t, he admitted. Asimov had been commissioned in late 1965 to write the piece by the editors of the World Book Yearbook. He had been asked to forecast, “with the facts and capabilities at hand,” to pr oject the futur e accomplishments and limits of space exploration. Asimov was beginning to see that our exploration of the planets—not with humans, as he supposed, but with r obots (unmanned space pr obes)—was happening far faster than he had imagined. “A r easonable guess,” Asimov wr ote in his yearbook piece, “is that by 2100, mankind will have explor ed our entire solar system … He will have studied the Sun from close range ... Mankind will not have made any attempt to r each or colonize planets outside our solar system.” At the time of our meeting in 1978, the success ofApollo, ending just five years earlier, had made crewed interplanetary flight look, well, easy . But the r oad to the stars was mor e complex than even Asimov had imagined. Politics, national priorities, and budgets seemed to get in the way of humans in space. “After 2100,” Asimov concluded, “A long pause will be enforced on mankind. He will probably have gone as far as he can go without developing technical abilities far beyond what he will possess even then.” Asimov’s final for ecast remains to be fulfilled: the year 2100 is far of f. But her e in 2011, we understand that humanity still has a long stairway to climb just to return astronauts to the moon after a 42-year hiatus.

Man charged in Weybridge incident WEYBRIDGE—Vermont State Police were dispatched to a reported family fight in the T o wn of Weybridge last week. Upon arrival, investigation by officers revealed that Omar Jones, 23, was involved in a family fight where two people were injured. While police were taking Jones into custody he began to fight with the police, ultimately spitting on a police of ficer. Jones was taken into custody and transported to the New Haven State Police Barracks for processing. Jones was subsequently lodged for lack of $20,000 bail at the Chittenden County Corr ectional Center and cited into Addison County District Court to answer the charg es.
Dr. Carl Brandon is spearheading the effort build Vermont’s first satellite. He is featured on a public television program Oct. 26.
Vermont scientists in the spotlight From News Reports
firstname.lastname@example.org BURLINGTON—Vermont has an aerospace community working to launch a satellite into lunar orbit, a news story that was first r eported in the Addison Eagle and Gr een Mountain Outlook. V ermont mathematicians ar e using T witter to gauge the mood of societies. V ermont scientists are sequencing the genome of a cr eature that is so like humans it may have a role in regenerative medicine. These scientists, and other like them based in Vermont, are busy working to expand human knowledge and solve problems everywhere fr om down the r oad to outer space. Vermont Public T elevision intr oduces viewers to their r emarkable neighbors in its “Emer ging Science” project. The project features broadcast
and online pr ograms, community events and educational r esources to help teachers spark students’ inter est in scientific careers. Three television shows will be broadcast Wednesday, Oct. 26, on VPT. At Vermont Technical College, Carl Brandon leads the effort to design and build Vermont’s satellite. He pr edicts Vermont could be first to launch a CubeSat into lunar orbit. Colleagues Danner Friend at Norwich University; Jeff Fr olik and Jun Yu at UVM; their students and students fr om St. Michael’s College ar e working on the propulsion, navigation and communications that will enable the CubeSat to gather information. On W ednesday, Nov. 2, at 8 p.m., “Emerging Science” meets scientists at work to make sense of the cyber world people now inhabit.Mathematicians Chris Danforth and Peter Dodds at the University of V ermont and their stu-
dents use masses of T witter data to measure the happiness of society. On Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m., a sea creature called the little skate is the star of the show. A consortium of scientists in the Northeast, including James V incent and Kelvin Chu at the University of V ermont, find that its genome is strikingly similar to humans’. They ar e trying to understand how it regenerates body parts and why humans lost most of that ability as they evolved. Rachel Phillips, who has a serious genetic disorder, watches the research on regenerative medicine in the hope that it can save her life. Producer Anya Huneke said, “Working on ‘Emerging Science’ showed me how science in V ermont has changed from the days when individuals her e could contribute only a piece of a puzzle. With the communications technology available now, Vermonters are doing big-picture research.”

from the hockey team in January 201 1, alleging that Knelman was wr ongly dismissed fr om the team after leaving an alumni hockey banquet shortly befor e it ended to spend time with his father, who was visiting for the weekend. The suit alleges that Coach Beaney subsequently berated Knelman in fr ont of the entire hockey team then suspended, and later dismissed, Knelman fr om the team. In its r esponse to Knelman’s complaint, the school essentially confirmed Knelman’s version of his dismissal fr om the hockey team, but argues that he has no legal right to obtain re lief from the violations of NCAA and Middlebury standards and r ules alleged in his lawsuit.

Safety No. 1 for cider producers
By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com LUDLOW—Vermont may be one of the nation’s leading states in the production of apple cider , but it is number 1 when it comes to cider production safety. Due to outbreaks of E. coli bacteria from unpasteurized apple cider and other outbreaks from contaminated fr uit juices, the U.S. Food and Dr ug Administration pr oposed new regulations a few years ago. As a r esult, all apple cider sold in V ermont, other than sales dir ectly to consumers by pr oducers—such as r oadside farmstands—must be produced using principles that reduce pathogens, according to cider maker Mike Curnow of Chester . UV radiation and heat are the most commonly used methods, he said. In Vermont, unpasteurized cider is sold only on-site at or chards or small r ural
mills. W ithout pasteurization, naturally occurring yeasts in the cider r emain alive and continue the fermentation process. In Vermont, as much as 12 pounds of apples go into making one gallon of fresh apple cider. “We like to use the old rack and cloth press,” said Curnow. Curnow makes cider and gives it away for his family, friends and neighbors. “I don’t need the money r eally. It’s just for friends and family,” he said. Asked the secr et of making a good V ermont cider , Curnow said—“use or ganic McIntosh apples. I think they make the best cider. I have two tr ees but that’s not enough, so I buy most of my apples locally. The Ludlow Farmers Market has been a good sour ce of apples for me. Then, sit down with a mug of hot cider and dunk a homemade cider doughnut. It’s heaven on earth.”
Knelman, a senior at Middlebury College and a former member of the college hockey team, has r eturned to Vermont to continue the legal battle over his dismissal fr om the hockey team. He is conducting the lawsuit while also completing his degr ee at Middlebury. The lawsuit Knelman filed earlier this year against Middlebury and its hockey coach, Bill Beaney , is currently in the discovery phase. The process will continue with a mediation presently scheduled for December. The lawsuit filed by Knelman claims unfair dismissal
SHREWSBURY—Green Mountain Club and U.S. Forest Service of ficials joined Gov . Peter Shumlin (D) this week to announce the r eopening of the last stretch of the Long T rail closed in V ermont. Due to damage from Tropical Storm Irene, three miles of trail in Shrewsbury r emained closed for a month. The r est of the Long Trail reopened a few weeks ago. A town r oad bridge utilized by the trail was also washed away and is impassable. Due to the damage, hikers will have to walk on Wilmouth Hill and Gilman Roads to avoid the damaged area. The club is working
with its partners to map out a plan for returning the trail to the forest. Many side trails within the boundaries of Gr een Mountain National For est remain closed. Sargent Brook and Gould Brook washed away much of the Long Trail in the Killington area. The Long Trail runs from the Massachusetts stateline to the international bor der at Quebec. The Green Mountain Club established the Long Trail in 1911.

To the editor: I never realized that the governor could choose which laws to ignore and which to enfor ce. The State Police stop a car going 90 mph and Shumlin questions the actions of the VSP? Wouldn't it be pr oper for the of ficer to try to determine why the car was going 25 mph over the speed limit? W ere they rushing to the hospital or escaping from a robbery? Or is it possible the driver was just attempting to smuggle in a couple of illegal aliens? Does the governor know if these two people had a criminal record? Shumlin's poor judgment tells me why he never worked in law enforcement. He wouldn’t last a day. John Wilda Swanton

To the editor: I was pleased to see a Vermont newspaper remind readers of President Reagan’s 1985 campaign for tax reform, during which he remarked to high school students that millionaires ought to pay more in taxes than bus drivers. To accomplish that worthy goal, Reagan had 10 days earlier announced a sweeping reform plan. It proposed to strip away many deductions favoring higher -income taxpayers and dramatically lower the rates for all taxpayers. The top personal tax rate of 50 percent would drop to 35 percent, the corporate rate fr om 46 to 33 per cent, and the capital gains rate to 17.5 percent. With strong bipartisan support in Congr ess, Reagan ultimately signed the landmark T ax Reform Act of 1986, that brought the top individual rate down to 28 per cent. The share of income taxes paid by the top 5 percent of taxpayers increased from 39.3 percent in 1985 to 44 percent in 1990. President Obama now pr oposes to close special inter est loopholes, as Reagan did. But unlike Reagan, Obama wants to increase the tax rates on the top 2 per cent of taxpayers who are already contributing 44 percent of income tax collections. Why would he expect that raising tax rates on the top 2 percent would achieve the same results as Reagan got when he lowered rates across the board? I look forward to seeing more of Ronald Reagan’s economic wisdom showcased in Vermont. John McClaughry Montpelier
