Rutland plant to generate own electricity


Lesters celebrate first harvest By Lou Varricchio

By Joe Milliken RUTLAND—Located on Ripley Road in Rutland, the Rutland Plywood Corp. recently received a permit to generate power utilizing waste steam, and will sell electricity to the Sustainable Priced Energy Development Program (SPEED). SPEED is a state initiative looking to supply some 20 percent of the state’s power by 2017. Founded in 1957, Rutland Plywood is one of the premiere suppliers of hardwood plywood, including engineered hardwood composites, colored hardwood veneer composites and densified hardwood composites. Industry solution products include outrigger and crane pads, beverage industry platforms, production boards for concrete pavers, gun stock composites and cores for snowboards and skis. The plywood manufacturing company received the certificate of public good from the Public Service Board, approving the installation of 400-kilowatt capacity turbine , which will be connected to the power grid. The company uses wood-fired boilers to generate steam for its mill production, and utilizes wood-waste fuel to supply the boilers. Emissions from the energy project are within the confines of the company's air quality permit. The state permit allows the company to burn up to 20,000 tons of wood per year, and Rutland Plywood currently burns about 15,000 tons per year. They also recently signed a 20-year contact to produce power. However, this is not a new practice for the Rutland Plywood Company.

Maura and Sam Lester of the new Lester Farm in New Haven. The 15-acre vegetable farm is likely the largest farm of its kind along the U.S. Route 7 corridor.

NEW HAVEN—All-natural vegetable farmers Sam and Maura Lester came to Vermont after seeing cultivatable land on their native Long Island disappear and be replaced by upscale houses. As farm land shrank on the island located east of New York City, the price of vegetable and potato farming increased. The couple decided to pull up roots and replant here in Addison County. Sam came from a multi-generation Long Island potato farming family, so it was a tough decision to make, but the island’s agricultural heritage continues to disappear. Who wants to be the last man standing? “We wanted to see what Vermont had to offer. We found this wonderful place in New Haven and decided to make our big move. We just opened to the public in August,” said Sam, “having just concluded our first, full year.” The Lesters transported a tractor, wagon, tools, and even Sam’s antique Ford Model A pickup truck from New York to their new home in Vermont. The Lesters worked the flat-terrain farmstead along U.S. Route 7 for the past year. They enriched its clay with natural organic material, planted seeds, and watched the first crops come in despite a crazy year of heavy spring rains and Tropical Storm Irene.

State blames storm for canceling firewood auction By Lou Varricchio

RUTLAND — One of the unexpected consequences of Tropical Storm Irene is the cancellation of the personal firewood lottery for the 2012 season by the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation (FPR). The popular program allows Vermonters to cut up to three cords of designated standing trees for personal use firewood from state lands for $10 per cord. The trees are measured and marked by FPR staff, as groups of hardwoods close to Vermont State Forest Highways to make cutting and hauling by hand easier. Safety is an important concern in both the planning

and access of these firewood areas. As FPR staff assessed the impact of Irene on roads and trails, it was discovered that areas scheduled for firewood cutting have been heavily impacted as far as accessibility and safety of roads and bridges. Some of the areas will be repaired in the construction season of 2012, which will present further conflicts for access on narrow forest roads. FPR officials decided to cancel the 2012 lottery which was expected to take place in January. The department will continue to supply firewood for needy Vermonters through the “Wood Warms” program.

The program supplies logs directly from FPR timber sales to nonprofit community organizations which provide volunteer labor to saw, split and deliver wood in their communities. This program has provided up to 100 cords of firewood per year for low income citizens. FPR anticipates the firewood lottery will return as roads and stream crossings are repaired. In the meantime, Vermonters are encouraged to contact local firewood vendors and to avoid bringing firewood from more than 50 miles from home to lessen the chance of importing invasive insect pests.

The Willie Sutton Syndrome

From the Editor

World Series, seriously


am not an overly engaged sports fan, but the sport I have always liked best is Major League Baseball (and its Minor League farm team system). Sorry, but football is a tad too rough for my civilized sensibilities; it looks too much like messy combat. On the other hand, baseball is refined, with its roots in the olde English sport of cricket and the even more ancient game of rounders. To me, baseball supremely embodies the better angels of America’s nature. This year ’s MLB World Series—between the mighty St. Louis Cardinals and the juggernaut Texas Rangers (the remnants of the former Washington Senators)—doesn’t seem to be attracting the media attention or audiences on the Eastern Seaboard. Turn on the radio and the sports news is about—football. How outrageous; there’s a World Series going on. St. Louis, Mo. and Arlington, Texas may not be giant metro areas to your average New Yorker or Bostonian sports fan. No matter, 2011 post-season baseball hasn’t been better in years. Personally, I was sorry to see the Yankees lose in the post-season. I know my rival Red Sox fans were heartbroken, too. The big series, underway as this is being written, promises the same excitement. But who’s watching when New York, Boston, Baltimore or Chicago teams aren’t involved? The numbers aren’t there when it comes to watching this midwestern series. Just try finding a local radio station that’s broadcasting the 2011 World Series. My earliest memories of World Series games go back to the early 1960s.

I still remember watching a monochrome television set showcasing the amazing L.A. Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax knock out the Minnesota Twins back in 1965. But it was the previous Series that first captured my young imagination—the 1964 World Series with the then in-decline New York Yankees against the rising powerhouse St. Louis Cardinals. The Yankees, even with Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Whitey Ford on the team, couldn’t defeat the likes of pitcher Bob Gibson of the 1964 Cardinals in the end. The Yankees’ long slide—not reversed for well over a decade—began during that watershed ‘64 World Series. This engaging story of sport was told by historian David Halberstram in his awardwinning book, “October 1964.” And what a year ‘64 was—it was a year of civil turmoil and simmering changes in American life. Perhaps baseball’s more recent replacement by football as the nation’s “pastime” began with that season of ‘64? No matter, something profoundly changed in America (and in baseball) back in 1964. Don’t get me wrong, many Americans still love the sport of baseball, but the guts and gore of football seem to appeal to today’s more blood-thirsty, unforgiving audiences—the same audience that fanned other sports that, a generation earlier, were dismissed as so much blue-collar stuff. Well, you can keep the lot—just give me a dusty diamond, a green field, a hot dog and cola, and the long shadows of a late summer afternoon. It’s what fields of dreams are made of. Lou Varricchio


f you like historical ironies, consider this one: New Orleans acquired its present nickname—the Big Easy—in 1970 from the James Conaway eponymous novel. That’s about when public education’s present fall, from previous grace, began as measured by such simple criteria as taxpayer cost versus student-achievement results. Now it’s the Big Easy’s public schools which are uniquely posting the most remarkable productivity gains. Since Hurricane Katrina, the Easy’s schools have been reorganized to teach as effectively as public schools did before the various public-ed “innovations”. New Superintendent John White credits ‘characterization’. “In other cities, charter schools exist in spite of the system. Here, they are the system,” said White. A lengthy Wall Street Journal description of New Orleans’ recent K-12 achievements, covered rather less well but in differing detail in other media, credits them almost entirely (without specifically saying so) to readoption of pre-70s public education norms: stick to the basics, test, promote-when-Proficient, maintain intra-classroom order, and adopt (modestly) larger class size. Over the last five years, New Orleans schools have made more yearly progress towards to the 2001 No-Child-Left-Behind objective of almost-all-students-proficient- by2014 than any other district in the country. That’s because, in my opinion, only charter schools have the statutory freedom to reconstruct those once-accepted norms. William of Greenpoint (he attended New York City public schools when they were internationally acclaimed) would have replied to the “why go back to the pre-1970 model?” question with the best and simplest answer: “Because that’s where the productivity is.” Where the productivity isn’t, at the moment, is in the non-charter sector. Federal test scores have been stagnant since the ‘70s and the 2001 proficiency by 2014 campaign has used up ten of its 14 years

without significant result at the local school level. Instead, considerable highly-skilled professional- educator energy is now being devoted to a new argument: explaining why the tests are unneeded, unwanted, and unproductive. William of Ockham (see last column for these two simple-answer-best William icons) wouldn’t have pointed to an explanation used in his own time: the poor carpenter blames his tools, which is the aphorism underlying the new edu-trend: administrators evaluating teachers via student scores. There’s ample evidence that today’s teachers could teach the testable content as well as their predecessors did, if: a. they were permitted to, b. they wanted to, and c. they were able to control their classrooms. Right now in the Big Easy all three conditions prevail. Elsewhere “teaching-to-the-test” is the new pejorative-of-choice, and the achievement tests themselves are blamed for disengaged “students” faring poorly on them. The anti-test argument has been accorded lots of column-inches in Vermont newspapers. Here’s a typical Vermont pull quote from another Addison County newspaper: “We aren’t teaching our children how to be wellrounded individuals; we’re teaching them how to be test takers.” And in the article itself is this remarkable quote: “…Our best teachers were literally forbidden to do the job they were trained to do.” (Both quoted names redacted by me for compassionate reasons). Here I foolishly thought that the basic job of grade-school teachers was to teach basic skills in basic numeracy and literacy? Former Vermonter Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

Campaign hopes to revamp rural economy By Lou Varricchio BRIDPORT—Members representing the Vermont Working Landscape Partnership (VWLP) launched the Revitalizing Vermont’s Rural Economy campaign this week. The campaign is focused on achieving the five goals outlined in the Partnership’s Action Plan, Investing in Our Farm and Forest Future. The Partners gathered at Jericho Settlers Farm, where they were welcomed by Christa Alexander. Marie Audet of Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport encouraged her fellow farmers, saying, “Here I am today a dairy farmer, and I’m feeling optimistic. We are not in this alone. Our farms are vital to our communities, and we are an integral part of our state’s charm. Let’s embrace this Action Plan and let’s be creative to support our working lands.” Alexander noted that the farm supports the productive use of over 200 acres and provides income for three families, while providing high quality food for the local community. Alexander said, “The most exciting part of the Action Plan for me is the Vermont Agriculture and Forest Products Development Fund to pull together all the various efforts to invest in Vermont agriculture and forest enterprises and aggressively support the many entrepreneurs who want to build businesses here in Vermont.” Paul Costello, executive director of

Vermont Council on Rural Development, noted that the Action Plan represents a jobs strategy that builds from Vermont’s brand identity and our fundamental values. He noted, “All Vermonters benefit from the working landscape, and we should all contribute to keeping it strong. What we present today is not just a vision – it’s an implementable Action Plan.” The Five Goals outlined in the Action Plan are: •Build a major campaign to cele-

brate the distinctiveness of the working landscape that is Vermont. •Target strategic investment through a Vermont Agriculture and Forest Products Development Fund. •Designate and support “Working Lands.” •Develop tax revenue to support working landscape enterprise development and conservation. •Create a State Planning Office and activate the Development Cabinet.

Conference to bring money, food makers together MIDDLEBURY—The Addison County Relocalization Network, the Addison County Economic Development Corporation and the Addison County Regional Planning Commission are launching a local money conference to bring together the regional capital community and Champlain Valley entrepreneurs with businesses involved in food, agriculture and forestry. The conference, “Financing the Working Landscape,” is scheduled for Nov. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the American Legion in Middlebury. The networking event is designed to educate entrepreneurs and students about different types of capital and how to prepare their businesses for capitalization. It will also explore alternative strategies for financing and showcase entrepreneurs currently looking for capital. The conference is sponsored by the Vermont Farm Viabil-

ity Program, the National Bank of Middlebury, Co-operative Insurance, Yankee Farm Credit, Worth Mountain Consulting and the VSJF Flexible Capital Fund. Event organizer Jonathan Corcoran of ACORN said, “Local capital is the third and critical capacity we need to develop along with local food and energy. This conference, I hope, will be a catalyst for engaging and mobilizing a mix of local and regional capital to re-energize our agricultural and forest economies. There are some exciting opportunities emerging in and around Addison County.” Admission is $25 for the conference (students: $15) with advanced registration before Oct. 31 ($30/$20 thereafter). Admission includes a local foods lunch prepared and served by the student chefs at the Glass Onion Restaurant at the Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury.

BRISTOL — On Sept. 23, Sara Sayles, daughter of Todd and Katie Sayles of Bristol, joined the Vermont Air National Guard. Those interested in joining the Air Guard who have never served before must be between the ages of 17 and 40. Sayles was required to pass a written examination called the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery as well as an Entrance Physical Examination. Using the results from her ASVAB test and physical, the local recruiter reviewed positions available within the local unit to match Sayles with some areas of interest. Once the job was selected— tactical aircraft maintenance—she was then scheduled to enlist and join the Air Guard. Everything prior to swearing in is just preliminary processing and did not obligate her to join. After her graduation from Mt. Abe next June, Sayles will go to Air Force basic training at Lackland AFB in Texas, followed by two technical schools for tactical aircraft maintenance. “Todd and I are very proud of Sara,” said Katie Sayles. “It was a big decision for her and a big realization that our little girl is not so little anymore.” For new Air Guard members like Sayles, the commitment involves working one weekend a month and two weeks a year for a minimum period of six years. Basic Military Training is held at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas for approximately eight weeks, followed by Technical School. Upon completion, she will join VTANG's Aircraft Maintenance Squadron as a crew chief.

Welch calls for release of low-income heating funds By Lou Varricchio

October 29, 2011

Fair trade is focus of Vermont’s Janus Forum Janus Forum debate

By Jeff Wakefield

BURLINGTON—With the U.S. Department of Energy reporting an increase in the price for heating fuel this winter, Vermont U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D) sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services calling on the department to immediately release as much Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding as possible under the current stop-gap spending bill which expires Nov. 18. With continued uncertainty over the final FY2012 funding levels for LIHEAP, release of these funds means states will have the opportunity to help those with greatest needs now. The funding level of $3.4 billion for LIHEAP in the current FY2011 spending bill would provide funding for seven million households. Ordinarily, the funds would be released throughout the year. “Even in good economic times, LIHEAP is a critical lifeline for countless Vermonters,” said Welch. “Now, with wages stagnate, a tough economy, rising fuel prices and Vermonters struggling to recover from Tropical Storm Irene, it is even more critical. Winter is upon us in the northeast and we need to get the money to those who need it now.” The DOE’s Energy Information Agency projects average household heating expenditures will reach record highs this winter, with predicted increases of three percent for natural gas, seven percent for propane, and eight percent for heating oil. The National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association anticipates 9.4 million households will seek assistance with their energy costs through the LIHEAP program this winter, up from 8.9 million last year.

BURLINGTON—In progressive Vermont, it’s an article of faith that spending a little extra for a bag of premium coffee beans with a Fair Trade label is a price worth paying. A new Janus Forum debate, titled Fair Trade Coffee: How Fair is Fair?, will hold that axiomatic belief up for scrutiny, with informed experts arguing for and against the proposition. The debate, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 4-5:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 in Ira Allen Chapel. Loraine Ronchi, senior economist for African Agriculture and Rural Development at the World Bank and Food Court 5, will argue in favor of fair trade. Colleen Haight, an assistant professor of economics at San Jose State University and economics program officer at the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason Univer-

sity, will argue against it. According to Ronchi, writing in a paper titled "Fairtrade and market failures in commodity markets," published by the World Bank, the rationale behind Fair Trade is that "… market power and a lack of capacity in producer organizations 'marks down' the prices producers receive." On her website, Haight writes a countering opinion: "While Fair Trade-certified coffee is growing in consumer familiarity and sales, strict certification requirements are resulting in uneven economic advantages for coffee growers and lower quality coffee for consumers." The debate will be moderated by Marselis Parsons, former news director and evening news anchor at WCAX-TV. The Fair Trade debate is the eighth in the Janus Forum series, which was launched in 2008. The goal of the debates is to stimulate reasoned discussion on important social and economic issues facing society. The debates stress the contrast and relative effectiveness of solutions that rely on freedom of individual choice as opposed to governmental or regulatory-based approaches to problems.

Panther women take five set at Plymouth MIDDLEBURY—Middlebury College senior Jane Handel recorded a match-high 21 kills and a team-leading 22 digs last week as Middlebury College pulled out a 3-2 victory over Plymouth State University in a non-conference women’s volleyball match at Foley Gymnasium. The match was close the entire way, as the score indicates. PSU took the

first and third sets, needing extra points to earn 26-24 and 27-25 decisions. Middlebury answered with victories in the second (25-22) and fourth sets (25-19), and finished off the match with a 15-12 verdict in set five. Middlebury improved to 14-6 on the season, while PSU had a five-match winning streak stopped and fell to 17-9. Handel had just one error in 54 at-

tempts for a .370 attack percentage. Sophomores Megan Jarchow and Amy Hart also reached double figures in kills with 14 and 13, respectively, and junior Julia Gibbs registered 55 assists. Junior Caitlin Barrett finished with 21 digs, and Middlebury posted more than a dozen blocks, led by junior Madeline Firestone with five.

Ron Proctor nabs $11,000 racing bonus MIDDLEBURY—Dr. James L. Fitzsimmons is a real-life Indiana Jones. The Middlebury College assistant professor and author is a Mesoamerican archaeologist; he leads an exciting life exploring the remains and cultures of ancient American civilizations. Fitzsimmons received his Ph.D. from Harvard University and has taught at the University of New Hampshire and

According to college news reports, Fitzsimmons is spearheading an archaeological project at the ancient Mayan site of Zapote Bobal in Guatemala. Mayans occupied the site between the years 250 and 850. Also known as Hiix Witz—or Jaguar Hill to ancient Maya priests and war-

riors—this site has already yielded hieroglyphic texts for decoding. On Oct. 29, in Middlebury’s Mahaney Center for the Arts, Room 221, at 4:30 p.m., Fitzsimmons will greet the public to present some of his recent findings as well as discuss how the Classic Maya viewed power and the boundaries of their kingdoms. This free event sponsored by the college will include many examples of the ancient Mayan civilization. For more details about the presentation, call the college at 802-443-3168.

IBM’s predicted future unfolds Guest Viewpoint

By Jack McMullen

IBM’s plant in Essex Junction is vital to the economy of Vermont. As the state’s largest private employer, the plant accounts for about 5 percent of Vermont’s 2010 GDP of $26.4 billion. In 1996 IBM was considering where to make the next round of capital investment in its semiconductor manufacturing business. U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, then-Congressman Bernie Sanders, and Gov. Howard Dean had an opportunity to make IBM-Burlington the place for such investments. According to a former colleague who, until very recently, was one of the most senior IBM corporate executives, Vermont was the company’s first choice for the expansion because of the Vermont plant’s excellent manufacturing performance and its fine record of innovation. IBM didn’t even ask for or expect the kind of outlandish incentives the company got from New York State to entice it to invest in Fishkill. Our state’s senior elected officials 15 years ago had little comprehension of how major U.S. corporations make important capital investment decisions. They failed to put together an effective plan to address IBM’s concerns. So far as it is publicly known, no approach was made to IBM’s most senior executives at company headquarters in Armonk, N.Y., who have the ultimate say about where such investments are made.

The company’s major requests were four-fold: •Completion of the circ highway •Lower power rates commensurate with its high industrial usage •Relief from excesses of the Act 250 process and from harassment by the Town of Essex and especially Williston, holding the company up for fees and approvals whenever it needed to make changes at the site •Some assistance in training insufficiently prepared new workers. None of these requests were fulfilled. Not surprisingly, IBM has made no new capital investment of any size at. the Essex Jct. site in the years since. According to Moody’s review of a City of Burlington bond issue, IBM employed 5,400 at the IBM-Burlington site in 2009, down from a peak of 8,500 in the mid 1990s. More ominously, IBM downsized its engineering staff at the site and has been allowing the plant to obsolesce. It now produces mainly lower cost commodity chips instead of the high value custom chips it made in its heyday. Meanwhile, PC World reports that since 2000 IBM has invested more than $10 billion in New York State where IBM chose to make its future. New York State investments, capped by IBM’s recent $3.6 billion commitment to a new nanoscale process facility there, are the largest IBM has made anywhere in the world. With the initial $2.5 billion dollar investment in Fishkill

more than a decade ago, knowledgeable observers predicted the fate of IBMBurlington was sealed. The only question is how rapidly the Essex Jct. facility will phase down. Its eventual extinction will have been caused in large part by the failure of political leaders to respond to clear signals from the largest private, taxpaying employer our state is ever likely to have. In the 1990s, then-Congressman Sanders launched a very public campaign criticizing IBM for changing its 1960s-era pension plan to remain competitive with nimbler, newer entrants into the semiconductor business. I am told by the same source that IBM’s then-CEO, Louis Gerstner, reacted to Sanders demagoguery with a statement something like: “Don’t the politicians in Vermont realize there are more than a dozen other states vying for our business?” This display of pique at the apex of IBM was kept hidden from the political and business establishments in Vermont. IBM’s spokesman here continued to reassure anyone who asked that IBM had no plans to close its local plant and, while always assessing its options, was in Vermont for the long haul. Behind this soothing picture presented to Vermont, the company has been designing and implementing its alternative future – and Vermont is not likely to have much part in it. (Jack McMullen of Burlington is managing principal of

the Cambridge Meridian Group, Inc., a strategy consulting firm serving Fortune 500 and technology-oriented companies, and a director of the Ethan Allen Institute. He ran for the U.S. Senate in Vermont in 1998.)

final results were tallied, he finished with a four-point advantage over Williams, with Vermont teenager Hunter Bates third in the point standings. Cody Sargen had the best season of his young career and although he didn't win a feature, he finished fourth in the NASCAR modified point standings, with John Proctor fifth. Dan Petronis won the pro late model championship at Albany-Saratoga, finishing the season with a three-race winning streak to take home his first title ever. Frank Monroe won track title in the Renegade division, while Mark Lindblade was crowned champion in the Bomber Warriors division. Monroe visited Victory Lane five times during the 2011 campaign, and Lindblade had three wins under his belt. The INEX Legends also ran a full campaign at AlbanySaratoga Speedway, with teenager Matt Pappa dominating the division, winning nine features. While Proctor had a very good season at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, he had a great one at the rain-plagued Devil's Bowl. Proctor also won two features at the Bowl, and never finished out of the top five. In addition to two wins, he had four seconds, a third, a fourth and one fifth to easily outdistance Jessy Mueller for the NASCAR Modified point title at the Bowl, which lost its final four races of the season to rain. Following Proctor and Mueller in the final standings were Bates, Mike Bruno and Mike Bush. Bates, who did double duty in both a modified and a pro late model at the Bowl, picked up the first pro late model title of his career, and did it without getting a victory.

WEST HAVEN—Christmas is going to come early for driver Ron Proctor. According to statistics released by NASCAR, Proctor will receive almost $11,000 in bonus money when the sanctioning body sends out its season-ending checks next month. In the first season that Albany-Saratoga and Devil's Bowl speedways ran under a NASCAR sanction, Proctor won the track championships at both speedways, a bonus of $3,000 for each track. Because the 2011 season was the first year that Proctor held a NASCAR license, he was also eligible for Rookie of the Year awards in both Vermont and New York, which put another $2,000 in his pocket. In addition, he earned $2,000 for winning the Vermont State Championship, and will receive a total of $995.47 from the individual point funds at the two tracks. The bottom line is that Proctor will receive a check for $10,995.47. Proctor has been competing with the Champlain Valley Racing Association for over 25 years, and recorded his first modified victory at Albany-Saratoga in 1985, but the 2011 campaign was obviously the best of his career. While Joe Williams came out of the box with four wins in the first five weeks of the season at Albany-Saratoga, Proctor was getting his car dialed in, and once he found the right setup, he was virtually untouchable. He got his first win of the season on June 10, which allowed him to become just the second driver in the history of the historic Malta track to win a feature in four consecutive decades, joining Jack Johnson on that elite list. Proctor finished the season with four wins, and when the

Kinney Drugs opens store in Hinesburg

By Lou Varricchio HINESBURG — Residents of Hinesburg were counting down to the Oct. 22 opening of Kinney Drugs new outlet in town. Kinney, a leading healthcare organization in New York and Vermont, completed building its new store at the intersection of Farmall Drive and Route 116.

Season of construction winding down in Hinesburg HINESBURG—It was a busy summer of construction in Hinesburg, according to Town Administrator Joe Colangelo, but residents can breathe a sigh of relief this autumn as two large, local construction projects wrap up. The Silver Street Bridge project finished Oct. 17. The state bridge project, which involved a 10 percent town funding match, involved a temporary bridge with slight rerouting of northbound traffic onto Route 116. Footings were put in place last summer and paving was completed this week. And Kinney Drugs held its grand opening Saturday, Oct. 22 at the intersection of Farmall Drive and Route 116. The 11,550-square-foot store includes a drive-through window, a pharmacist consultation area and a full range of health care products and services. Finishing touches being made on the Silver Street Bridge in Hinesburg last week. Photo by Lou Varricchio

Ex Middlebury lawyer appointed justice

Quartet to soothe string lovers in Middlebury

MONTPELIER—Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) announced that Beth Robinson will be Vermont's next Supreme Court Justice. “I’m humbled by the confidence that Gov. Shumlin has placed in me, and deeply grateful both for the opportunity I’ve had to serve his administration these past 10 months, and for the chance to serve Vermont’s judiciary in the years to come,” the new justice said. Robinson practiced law for 18 years at Langrock Sperry & Wool in Middlebury and Burlington, with a civil practice that included workers’ compensation, family law, employment law, negligence and injury cases. She served as cocounsel in the case of Baker v. Vermont, the landmark case that led to Vermont’s passage of a first-in-the-nation civil union law, and led the successful quest for full marriage equality for same-sex couples in Vermont. Robinson graduated from Dartmouth College in 1986 and the University of Chicago Law School in 1989.

MIDDLEBURY—On Friday, Oct. 28, the popular Hugo Wolf Quartett will soothe string lovers at Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts Concert Hall at 8 p.m. Having developed from an ensemble known only to chamber-music-lovers to one of the most sought-after string quartets of its generation, the Hugo Wolf Quartett left the campus audience on the edge of their seats when last in Middlebury. These “new stars on the quartet heaven” (Der Standard, Vienna) perform works by Mozart and Schoenberg, plus Schubert’s G Major quartet. This free Performing Arts Series concert is made possible with generous support from the Institute for Clinical Science and Art, in memory of F. William Sunderman Jr. and Carolyn Reynolds Sunderman. Free; no tickets required. 802-4433168 or

‘Botany of Food’ workshop in Vergennes

VERGENNES—Did you know that corn is a grass and an artichoke is in the sunflower family? The Willowell Foundation invites the public to find out what they are eating at the Botany of Food, a workshop with Teena Hayden, agricultural consultant and Panton resident. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., in the Congregational Church at 30 South Water St., Vergennes. Suggested donation is $10 to support the Willowell farm to school garden. The workshop will provide a basic understanding of the botany of the roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds we eat for sustenance, flavor, and satisfaction. Among the plant families Teena will discuss are the two largest, the grass family (wheat, rice, sugarcane, corn) and the sunflower family (lettuce, artichokes); legumes (beans, soy, peanuts); fruit crop families; and the families of exotic spices, culinary herbs, beverage crops, and garden vegetables. For more information, contact Teena Hayden at" or 802-475-2248.

Okemo in Top 10 ski survey ... again By Lou Varricchio LUDLOW—With less than a month to go until Okemo Mountain Resort’s target opening day of the 2011-12 winter season, the anticipation among skiers and riders is rising to a fevered pitch. October marks the announcement of many magazine reader survey results and top-10 lists, and Okemo is, once again, receiving accolades. In its annual Top 30 Reader Resort Survey, Ski named Okemo Mountain Resort one of the top 10 resorts in the East. Okemo ranked number four overall and placed among the top 10 in 12 of 20 categories listed in the new Winter Vacation Issue. Okemo was ranked second in the East for Grooming and third for Service, Lifts, Family Programs, and On-Mountain Food. The resort’s Snow, Weather and Digital Programs ranked fourth. Dining made the fifth spot and Okemo made the top 10 for Terrain Parks and Overall Satisfaction. The readers of SnowEast have also recognized Okemo with the magazine’s Reader Survey Award for Favorite Snowgrooming. In other recent Top 10 lists, Forbes listed their top picks in an online article and slide show titled “10 Best Ski Resorts for Families.” Okemo Mountain Resort claimed the fifth position in the top-10 list and Okemo was the first eastern resort named. Also cited was the fact that Okemo Mountain School raised nearly $8,000 during a

Amazingly, a warmer than average autumn helped extended the growing season for a few of the crops. (Ceres, the ancient Roman goddess of agriculture, could have been smiling down on the Lester Farm for all we know.) During September and October, the Lester Farm produce barn was open for business, and local residents were surprised to see one of the largest locally grown selections of vegetables. “Just talking about tomatoes—we have 27 varieties,” said Maura. Spread out in neat wooden bins were all varieties of tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, squashes, beets, turnips, cucumbers, watermelons, beans, corn, carrots, beans, pumpkins, gourds, and more. The Lester Farm is most likely the largest farm of its kind along the Route 7 corridor, between Bennington and the Canadian border. The farm’s selection is bound to satisfy customers far and wide. “We have 15 acres under cultivation,” said Sam. “It’s all natural. No pesticides are used in our operation.” The Lesters are working with several local groups such as ACORN and NOFA to get out the word about the farm. They also hope to negotiate with local restaurants to carry their fresh produce. The Lesters said their greatest satisfaction in sticking with the farming life is working the earth. “This work gives us a lot of joy,” Sam said. “We think it’s important to control our own food and the quality of it. Only local produce can give you that assurance.”

Williston’s Hoar tops quarter million dollar mark in racing By Lou Varricchio

WATERBURY—Eight-time American Canadian Tour Champion Brian Hoar of Williston topped the $250,000 mark in career earnings during the 2011 season. Including special events, Hoar pocketed $65,000 in 2011 alone. Hoar and his Rick Paya Motorsports team put together one of the greatest ACT Late Model seasons ever to claim their third straight title. While finishing outside the top 10 just once in 12 starts, the team managed to tie the previous record for most wins in a season with five, which Hoar set back in 1999. Those five wins bring Hoar ’s record career wins total to 33. The Goss Dodge Chrysler team claimed wins in the 49th Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl at Thunder Road (Barre), the Showdown at Chaudiere at Autodrome Chaudiere (Vallee, Quebec), and a 100-lap segment of the Goodyear Speedweeks Cup at New Smyrna Speedway (New Smyrna Beach, Fla.). Their Milk Bowl win alone earned them over $13,000 with combined special event winnings surpassing the $20,000 mark. Hoar will be honored as the Champion for the eighth time in twenty ACT Late Model seasons at the Banquet of Champions in January 2012.

Middlebury College soccer men cruise past Plymouth From News Reports MIDDLEBURY—Middlebury College outshot Plymouth State 21-0 on its way to a 5-0 win over the Panthers in Vermont. The Panthers of Middlebury move to 6-3-3 overall, while Plymouth State falls to 4-9, breaking a three-game winning streak. Middlebury returns to action on Saturday at

Bates. Middlebury opened the scoring 8:38 into the contest as Brett Brazier trapped and settled a ball, before feeding Tyler Macnee. The Middlebury senior took a quick step and then blasted home a shot from the left wing for his team-leading fifth of the season. Martin Drolet scored twice in a 3:32 span midway through the half to give the Panthers a 3-0 advantage. The first goal came after a flurry of shots as Macnee was stopped and Bra-

Support growers at Hinesburg Lions Farmers Market Guest Viewpoint For the past few months, I’ve heard and seen several people talk about keeping our dollars close to home—supporting our local residents and encouraging them to come out to the Hinesburg Harvest Market and now the Hinesburg Lions Winter Farmer ’s Market. I just can’t be quiet anymore because these same people are the people that I rarely, if ever, saw supporting these local vendors, who showed up week after week, rain or shine at the Hinesburg Lions Farmers Market. I felt very sad as I saw local residents pass by without supporting these wonderful, hard working farmers, bakers and crafters. Some of you have used the excuse that it’s too hard to get in and out of the current venue. Well, first, I went down just about every single week and not once did I have trouble getting in or out of the market. Drivers going both north and south were very courteous. Second, the Lions have spent hours going to meetings try-

ing to change our location to lot number 1, just north of the Hinesburg Police Station. In fact this past spring, I thought it was a done deal and I had the paper work all complete with our new address. I even contacted many of the vendors saying that we’d be moving, only to be told by the town that we could move there only temporarily. We would have to leave for the park to be built sometime in the future, and then move back after the grass is established. The selectboard said it might take 5-10 years for them to get the lot completely ready for a market. Then, this past summer, while we were taking down the market, I noticed that a new soccer field is being leveled, and made behind the Hinesburg Town Hall. How can some things be done so quickly and others take so long? The Hinesburg Lions is a total volunteer organization that is here to support our community and help its residents in many ways. All the money that we make goes right back into our town for scholarships, food shelf, eye glasses, hearing aids, emergency needs, etc. By not supporting these farm-

ers, bakers and crafters this summer, you were not keeping your dollars close to home or supporting your local people. I want to make it clear to everyone: many other farmers markets hire managers and staff to put markets together and over see all the problems or work that needs to be done, like contacting vendors, setting guidelines, getting and possibly paying for entertainment, setting up meetings, setting up and taking down the market, advertising, etc., etc. All this money that the hired managers and staff receive, goes straight into their pockets. The money that Lions make goes right back into your town, Hinesburg, because we are volunteers. We’re always looking for new members and would love to see you at our meetings at 7:30 p.m on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at Papa Nicks or at 6:30 p.m for dinner and the meeting.
