Commuters feel betrayed By Fred Herbst firstname.lastname@example.org CROWN POINT/ADDISON — After a shift as a police officer in Shelburne, Vt., Bruce Beuerlein used to relax during his hour drive home to Ticonderoga. No more. With the Lake Champlain Bridge in Crown Point closed, Beuerlein is now faced with worries about his route home. Will the lines at the ferry be shorter than the 90-mile detour through Whitehall? And what about the next day? He can’t afford to be late for work. “Betrayed,” Beuerlein said when asked his feelings on the bridge closure. “That’s how I feel.” He’s not alone. Bill Buell, a Crown Point resident who also depends on the bridge to get to and from work, has called for everyone associated with the span for be fired. Mark Alford of Port Henry, another commuter, has suggested people file lawsuits against the state for its neglect of the bridge. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava understands the emotions of those who count on the Lake Champlain Bridge. “It’s the government’s responsibility to provide a safe transportation system for our constituents,” he said. “We let them down.” The bridge, which serves about 4,000 vehicles a day, links New York and Vermont. It was closed Oct. 16 when an inspection found its concrete piers had disintegrated. The bridge is jointly owned by the states of New York and

THE SKIPPER WORE A SKIRT — Local performer Jane Vincent portrayed flamboyant Lake Champlain steamboat captain Philomene Daniels in “The Captain Was a Lady!” at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s annual Storytelling Festival last week. The skipper in skirts, fondly known as Captain Phil, navigated the lake’s rocky shoals and November gales with the family’s Daniels Steamboat Line of Vergennes between 1877 and 1910.

Bridge From page 1 Vermont, although New York DOT is responsible for its maintenance. The bridge, built in 1929, has been the site of repair work since mid-summer. Plans are being made to replace the bridge in 2013. To help commuters deal with the bridge closure, New York State has established an outreach center. It can be reached by calling tollfree number 1-888-769-7243. The center, open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, can also be reached by calling 485-1159. The state has also made “impact statement” available to New York and Vermont commuters. It is available by calling 518-5973035. “They are forms that people can fill out to let New York and Vermont officials know what impact the bridge closure is having on their lives — commuting, medical, financial, etc.,” explained Wendy Ingleston, clerk to the Crown Point supervisor. “We also now have impact statements for businesses available, too.” Service at the Ticonderoga Ferry has been extended to assist motorists. The ferry, which was scheduled to close for the season Oct. 31, will now stay open until Nov. 15 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. About 50 people rallied at the bridge Oct. 25, demonstrating their concerns. “For most of us living on either side of the lake, our incomes provide only the essentials as we struggle to keep up with rising food and fuel cost,” said Pastor David Hirtle of the First Congregational Church of Crown Point, who organized the rally. “And now, a tariff, as it were, in the form of a 100-mile detour or the added time and expense of a ferry trip.” Gov. David Paterson declared a state disaster emergency in Essex County and other areas affected by the closing of the Lake Champlain Bridge Oct. 21. That declaration is expected to assist the state in securing funds and permits needed to repair the span. No timeline for repairs has been announced, although the state DOT had called a public meeting Oct. 28 at Moriah Central School to address the bridge closure. Ticonderoga Supervior Bob Dedrick said the bridge closing will have a serious economic impact. He noted many people use the bridge to reach work and others to shop. “People don’t realize the financial impact this will have,” Dedrick said. “Wal-Mart, Lowe’s, International Paper — every
business will be affected.” N.Y. Sen. Betty Little promised quick action by the state. “If what the inspectors say is true about the condition of the bridge, a big tragedy may have been averted,” the senator said. “Transportation officials told me the bridge needs to be shut down given the severe deterioration of two piers that were able to be inspected because the water level dropped. “We need a plan to address this problem very quickly,” Little said. “I was told that the piers can be repaired, but was not provided a timeline as to when it will happen. I will push for an answer.” Gov. David Paterson released a statement also calling for quick action. “This emergency closure was necessary for the safety of those who use the bridge, and the action could not be delayed,” he said. “I want to assure North Country residents that we are working as quickly as possible to re-open the bridge, as it is a critical passageway to and from Vermont. “However, we will not in any way jeopardize the safety of those who use the bridge,” Paterson said, “and the structural problems must be resolved to ensure that safety.” A temporary ferry boat, shuttling between Westport and Basin Harbor, can accommodate 44 passengers; the ferry does not carry motor vehicles. Shuttle buses at Basin Harbor meet New York passengers to transport them Vermont jobs at Goodrich Aerospace, Country Home Products and Porter Medical Center. The operator of the Shoreham ferry will also pitch in to relive commuter angst. A rally was held at the Crown Point side of the bridge Oct. 26. Commuters protested their displeasure at the abrupt bridge closing. Local officials discussed various transportation alternatives to the bridge including a temporary floating bridge.

Couponing's Best-Kept Secrets: Keep Your Eyes on the Prize
'm sure you know by now that I love getting groceries for free with coupons whenever possible. But we can't get everything for free all of the time. Here's a fun way to maximize coupon savings and get items very inexpensively, even when they're not completely free.
Super-Couponing Secret: Buy 'Small' and Save the Biggest for 'Free' Manufacturers will often issue coupons for an item that's free "when you purchase any of these 3 brands." The coupon often shows various other brands or products sold by the same manufacturer. I recently had a coupon offering a free package of hot dogs if the shopper purchased three other items from the same manufacturer. During the sale at my store, the hot dogs were on sale for $3.99. If the total cost of the three additional items is less than the sale price of the hot dogs, I'll get the hot dogs cheaper than I could have purchased them otherwise plus, I'll have three additional items to take home as part of the deal, too. When I spot coupons like these, I will look closely at the additional brands featured. I do not necessarily think about whether I want or need these items. Instead, I calculate what would be the least expensive thing to buy to make the larger item cost as little as possible. The additional products with the hot dog deal included coffee, crackers, condiments, gelatin desserts and powdered drink mixes. Of those items, the gelatin desserts and powdered drink mixes seemed like the best candidates. They're both usually pretty inexpensive, and buying three of either will qualify me for my free $3.99 package of hot dogs. After checking the prices on both, I saw that the gelatin was on sale for 33 cents a box. I could pay 99 cents for three boxes and get a free package of hot dogs, too! Not bad at all. But then I checked the price on powdered drink mixes.
That’s a wrap
n a recent status update on my personal face book page I suggested there are two types of people, those who wrap gifts on the floor, and those who wrap on a table. I could have but didn’t include the scant number of folks who must have been horribly mistreated when they were young, who wrap on the bed. I can see laying your gifts and wrapping paper on the bed, but to actually do the wrapping on the bed, nope, can’t see it. Of the thirty-eight initial (in ninety minutes) responses, fifteen said they wrap on the floor. One gal noted that she wraps Christmas presents on the floor, but for birthdays, all other holidays, or any other present wrapping occasions, she uses the table. A handful of floor wrappers stated they’re not sure why they wrap on the floor since they have multiple cats and dogs, which makes floor wrapping very difficult. One respondent wrote, “As long as the people receiving the gifts don’t mind claw holes in the paper and animal hair on the scotch tape, floor wrapping still works best.” A lady said she wrapped on the floor mostly, and the bed some. Fact is, a total of five folks came through saying they wrap on the bed. I’ll have to re-think my not including bed as an option in my Christmas present wrapping location survey. I’ll still wonder though, if my theory that the bed is used for stacking gifts and wrapping materials is accurate, how can there be enough room to wrap on the bed? Must be bed-top present wrappers have huge beds, either to keep them a safe distance from there mates while they sleep, or the opposite, or to act as a playground -- a kind of grand love making mesa. I might try wrapping on the bed this year, but I still feel even if it’s one of those high beds, it’ll be too low for me because I’m quite tall. I also need a hard surface when I wrap to use as a guide for the scissors as I cut. I don’t feel a cushy comforter would provide enough resistance. Plus I’d end up cutting into the bed in some way shape or form. A bed just doesn’t seem like it’ll be hard enough, even a hard bed. Of bed wrapping I’ll conclude, it beats, by large measure, bed wetting, but that’s about it. One lady says she wraps on the table because the floor kills her back. The floor kills my back too, but bending over a table kills it more. Don’t ask me how I know. One person’s answer was they wrapped in the car, “on the way to the party.” No surprise that answer came from a dude. I’d ask the authorities to consider adding present wrapping, to texting, drinking, and reading, to the list of “don’ts” while you drive. Another of the six male responders wrote, “I don’t own a table.” Like me he probably eats standing up at the kitchen counter, which the experts say is bad. They say you should set, relax, take your time and enjoy your meal. I say, phooey, I like standing as I eat, it’s better for my back. Have you noticed a theme here, back health? If you don’t relate, you’re not over thirty-eight. Makes me think though, maybe this year I’ll wrap at the kitchen counter, it’s wide enough, and I had mine built to forty-nine inches instead of the standard thirty-six. Counter wrapping might be best for back health. Of her present wrapping tradition one particularly friendly lass shared that she wraps “On the floor, on my knees sometimes, if the package is big enough and I need the leverage.” Ahhh the Yule. Another person said they wrap on the table because if they screw up they like to pound on it. Yup, a dude. Now there’s the ole holiday spirit … pa rum, pum pum pummel. I wrap on the floor because I like looking directly into the fire, and directly up at the tree. One person brought up the option to wrap in mid-air. I think we’ve all done the running- out-thedoor mid-air wrap job a time or too. It works, but it’s danged dangerous, and the quality of the job will lend substantial evidence to the fact that you thought to buy the present last minute. So unless you want the present recipient to feel un-loved, put thought and effort into buying and wrapping way ahead of the presenting. I was surprised by two gals; one said she gives the gift in the bag from the store it was bought, thus eliminating the table vs. floor (vs. bed? I’m still not sold) query. The other gal said she saves and uses brown shopping bags as wrapping. I’ve used shopping bag paper to wrap, but not for Christmas presents. Neither of these gals will be guest starring on Martha Stewart’s “Christmas in the Hamptons,” anytime soon, but I certainly wouldn’t decline a gift from either one of them. In all cases, as we all know, have heard, and spoke; It’s not the gift, or the wrapping, it’s the thought, and I’ll take any and all thoughts one is willing to send my way. I’d like to wish you and yours a bit of a premature, but not too premature, Merry Christmas. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

They were on sale for 10 cents each! Whether I plan to drink them or not, buying 3 packets of drink mix became my means for acquiring the $3.99 package of hot dogs for just 30 cents! By Jill Cataldo In my coupon classes, I refer to this as the "take one for the team" couponing strategy. Sometimes it's necessary to buy something we don't necessarily want because it's our means to acquire the item we actually do want for a much lower price. Here's another example. I recently saw tear pads of coupons in the produce department of my store near the salads. The coupons provided $2 off produce when you purchased any of a certain manufacturer's salad dressing. I looked at that brand of salad dressing and realized that the manufacturer makes both bottled salad dressings and the dry seasoning that come in a small packet, the kind you mix at home with oil and vinegar. The packets of seasoning cost 79 cents. So, for each packet of the salad dressing I purchased, I used one of the coupons. I was able to buy $2 worth of fresh produce for 79 cents. I didn't necessarily want the salad dressing, but it allowed me to purchase my produce items at a much lower cost. Next week, I'll answer some more reader mail and we'll take a brief break from coupon tips to discuss the best way to organize all of the coupons that we receive each week in the newspaper.

Cosmonaut cover-up or another looney theory?
istory books cite Russian cosmonaut Maj. Yuri Gagarin as the first man in space. Gagarin’s tiny Vostok space capsule circled the Earth multiple times on April 12, 1961, making the former Soviet Union the first nation to successfully—and safely—put a living human into low Earth orbit. Upon his return to Earth, Gagarin, as the first man in space, was treated as a superman—a hero of the Soviet state, the world’s leader in space science and technology at the time. But did the history books get it wrong about Gagarin’s primacy in space? The answer is “yes” if you believe a Russian conspiracy enthusiast and his freelance filmmaker friend. “Sergei Vladimir Ilyushin, Jr., a decorated Soviet pilot, was one of the few people who knew for certain that Yuri Gagarin was not the first man in space,” says Paul Tsarinsky, a former public television producer and Russian translator. According to Tsarinsky, at the dawn of the Space Age in 1957, the Soviet government refused to publicize embarrassing stories about its failed space experiments—and its biggest failure was, he claims, a botched April 7, 1961, spaceflight. It was made by a cosmonaut named Sergei Vladimir Ilyushin, Jr. Tsarinsky says there’s historical evidence that hints at a major Soviet coverup in April 1961—that Ilyushin made it into space five days before Gagarin. There were several Western communist news accounts of the period that did refer to a spaceflight a few days before Gagarin’s. According to Tsarinsky, citing extant Western communist news accounts published post-April 7, 1961, an emergency hard landing was made by Ilyushin, inside Red China. There’s no question about it, Sergei Vladimir Ilyushin, Jr. had the Russian Right Stuff. He was the Soviet version of Chuck Yeager, the U.S. Air Force pilot who broke the sound barrier in 1947. But after Gagarin’s historic spaceflight, the young hero Ilyushin vanishes from historical records; he only reemerges from the shadows after the fall of the USSR. By all accounts, Ilyushin was a “hot-shot” pilot. He was the son of the famous World War II-era hero and aircraft designer, Sergei Vladimirovich Ilyushin, Sr. The senior Ilyushin was a close Communist Party pal of Soviet Premiere Kruschev, so he could have gotten his son lined up to be the prime pilot for the Red’s first manned spaceflight. For Tsarinsky, Yuri Gagarin seems an odd choice to fly the historic “first” mission. Why? Well, he says, Gagarin was a complete unknown in the Soviet Air Force, at least until the Reds broke the story mere moments after the historic flight was successfully concluded. A news story, filed by a British Communist Party journalist in Moscow dated April 8, 1961, reported that after three orbits, Ilyushin lost contact with mission control. The British Red’s report continued with an amazing story— After reentry, and as his Vostok approached the ground, Ilyushin planned on ejecting from the cap-
sule (just as Gagarin did a few days later). The plan was for the cosmonaut to parachute safely to the ground. But, the story goes, a fouled escapehatch prevented Ilyushin from bailing out in time. He lost consciousness just as the spacecraft impacted the ground. Although still alive, the cosmonaut was severely injured. And one final matter complicated Ilyushin's rough return to terra firma: the Vostok had landed inside Red China; at that time, China was on rocky terms with its neighboring communist state, the USSR The USSR’s state-controlled news outlet, TASS, did not publicize a pre-Gagarin flight; however, TASS reported that a pilot named Ilyushin was injured in an automobile accident and was recuperating in a Moscow hospital—a clear sign that something was afoot. Conspiracy or confusion? As far as Tsarinsky can tell, Ilyushin was badly injured upon impact; he remained in a Chinese hospital for more than a year. “I assure you that the whole story is true...,” says Tsarinsky, who cites his media mentor, filmmaker Eliot Haimoff, as the source of the story. “Haimoff went to Russia to interview Ilyushin. In 1999, Ilyushin was living in a modest apartment in Moscow with his wife of over 45 years. He was still active as a test pilot, aircraft designer and spokesperson for a major military aircraft manufacturer.” Haimoff’s telling of the alleged Soviet coverup is seen in the documentary, “The Cosmonaut CoverUp”. During his visit to Moscow, Haimoff claimed that the aging aviator refused to talk with him on camera, but off-camera, Ilyushin told his story as a cosmonaut. So, all we really have is Haimoff’s word regarding his 1999 meeting with Ilyushin. While the British newspaper account of an alleged “first flight” exists, this writer doesn’t believe it is accurate; it wasn’t the first time a newspaper got the facts wrong. (The RMS Titanic was reported saved on the front pages of several daily newspapers in 1912). An alleged cosmonaut cover-up would have been impossible to maintain after the fall of the USSR.

DROP-IN VISITOR—A recent “drop-in” visit by the helicopter crew of the U.S. Army’s Vermont National Guard’s CounterDrug Aviation Unit was the high point of the week for students and faculty at St. Mary's Elementary School in Middlebury. Guardsman Carvet and another crew member spoke to the students about the risky job of searching for illegal marijuana plants from the air—Vermont’s largest cash crop—and the ill effects of tobacco use. “Everyone learned a lot and had a great time doing it,” said Principal Monique Almquist.

BRANDON — The annual Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Northern Vermont Awards Banquet was held Oct. 21 in South Burlington. The McKernon Group of Brandon Vermont was named first place in the category of the Construction of a Luxury Home. The winning home, sited on Lake Champlain, was designed by Nantucket Design Center in Massachusetts and constructed by the McKernon Group. The combined efforts of the two companies were rewarded by the association, noting its beauty, detail, natural components and a commitment to energy efficiency.
McKernon’s 2009 award-winning home. The house is located along Lake Champlain between Middlebury and Burlington.
Club organizes town’s largest fundraising event ORWELL — On Oct. 24, Orwell’s biggest fundraiser of the year took place for the seventh year in a row—the town’s Fortnightly Cafe is always a big success. “We transform the school’s cafateria into a romantic restaurant with lots of wonderful atmosphere,” according to Joan King, Fortnightly Club president. “Loretta Lee, who did a wonderful job, was acting president for this gala affair. Linda Martin, our Fortnightly Cafe' committee chair, did an excellent job as well as everyone who participated,” King said. All volunteers (members and their spouses) who made this dinner happen, worked hard to make it an enjoyable community event. “This social event starts off with a cocktail hour with many appetizers, sparkling apple cider, ginger ale and good friends. From there, everyone is escorted to their tables where they are served a scrumptious meal and then

worked on this fundraiser and all the community members who attended. By attending and working this event, you have all had a
part in helping our community. We hope to see you next year for another great evening of food, fun and friends,” she said.
LIONS CLUB CLINIC—Jackie Dutil, of the Brandon-Forest Dale Lions Club, oversees a special free diabetes screening clinic held at the Brandon American Legion Post 55 recently. RAVNAH nurses and Lions Club volunteers helped coordinate a seasonal-flu clinic and the club’s diabetes clinic. Similar clinics, sponsored by the Lions Club, will return to Post 55 into the near future. Dutil said Lions Club members are active in various volunteer community service projects that benefit residents of the Brandon-Forest Dale area. Photo by Lou Varricchio

Troubled bridge To the editor: I attended the rally at the Crown Point Bridge on Sunday, Oct. 25. I hope this information will be useful. There were an estimated 60-70 people at the event. Reverend David Hirtle of Crown Point spoke along with Crown Point Supervisor Dale French, Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, and Ticonderoga Supervisor Bob Dedrick. We were informed by Scozzafava that the piers would be repaired eventually but were given no timeline for the repairs. He explained that New York Gov. David Patterson has sent one of his top aides to the area to assess the situation and that he (Patterson) is calling for an investigation to explain why the bridge was allowed to deteriorate to such an extent. Scozzafava mentioned that a state of emergency has been declared in both states and that should speed up the process of repairing the bridge. He also said that a temporary ferry would likely be set up near the bridge to help people get across the lake in reasonable time, and two bus routes would be set up to transport commuters around the 100 mile detour. He explained that workers should keep track of additional travel expenses such as ferry tolls because they may be entitled to reimbursements in the future. There was absolutely no mention of a pontoon bridge as an alternative. There will be a meeting at Moriah Central School at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, to provide updated information on the bridge.

To the editor: Like Martin Harris in the Oct. 7 issue of the Addison Eagle, I am a big supporter of personal responsibility. We need not look to the government to solve all our problems. However, there is a role for government in protecting citizens from the irresponsible behavior of their compatriots. We can debate when the government should intervene, but, unlike Mr. Harris, I do not believe it is worth wondering whether fire protection should be a personal decision. A fire left to burn in my neighbor ’s house risks burning my own. I’ll have to call my private contractor to keep my house safe; that might even mean putting out the fire next door. Even if my contractor and I manage to spare my house while letting my neighbor ’s burn to the ground, I’m then living next to a fire scene. Esthetically not so nice, dangerous for my kids, absolutely toxic for the value of my home. Of course, things get even trickier if my neighbor is inside the burning building… along with his wife and children No contractor? No rescue. The same can be said of health care. If my neighbor opts out, she’ll regret her decision when she’s sick or injured. She will go to the emergency room, the most expensive option possible, and her condition will require more costly intervention because she will not have had the ongoing care that might have prevented the acute consequences she will then be experiencing. Just like my fire insurance pays for the consequences of the fire in my neighbor ’s house, a portion of my health care premiums now will go to cover her health care. And if we were to let the unconscionable happen, if we were to let my neighbor die or become severely ill? What of the effect on her children, her husband, her parents, her employer? It’s not just a matter of economics; health care is a matter of conscience. In this shrinking world, we are often called upon to be our brothers' keeper. And what of people for whom health care is not a choice, but an impossibility? We are the only industrialized nation in the world that opts out of insuring all its cit-

SATURDAY October 31, 2009 izens. While our treatment of severe illness and injury is among the best, in 2000 the World Health Organization U.S. placed 37th in overall health, surpassed by all of Western Europe and several countries that might surprise: Colombia, Costa Rica, and Cyprus. France was first. So, like Mr. Harris, I support personal responsibility, but there are times when we should prohibit irresponsible decisions and so protect those who do the right thing. Henry Wilmer Addison
The full Monte To the editor: In response to The Eagle letter writer who suggested that one half of the stateworkers could be eliminated ("Mad as heck") I suggest the following: Let’s do better than that. Let’s eliminate all of them from the top spot on down to the person who turns out the lights. We could do it in the name of budget cuts. Let’s think about it seriously for just a minute......Ok, times up. I would further suggest that the experiment be done temporarily because what we wish for may not be what we really want. We could have this action take effect on Jan. 1, 2010. We could call it a New Year's Resolution and refer to the days off as "furlough days" that gives all of the bums a day off without pay. Let’s make the furlough days last say, 10 days. That aught to be enough to see if the plan works. There might be a couple of small issues to deal with but guys like the author of that piece should have time to cool off by then and come up with a well thought out plan on how to make up for the vacancies. Let me see, one thing that might happen would be the that the inmates could get a little hungry. That could be offset by letting them out on the streets. Besides, their services could be used to shovel the interstates and other state roads due to the fact that the highway folks will be on furlough as well. Housing them could be a problem. (Better lock the doors. No State Police will be around because they get the same benefits as the rest of the state workers.. Accidents? No problem if you really need help, call a drug dealer.....once the inmates have the roads cleared and well sanded, they could set up flares. (Might want to find out which ones were in the pen for arson, though.) The Vermont State Hospital staff would be taking a breather too, so the patients could lend a hand. There probably won't be any need for the buildings and grounds people because there would be nobody in the buildings. If things get really bad, we could call out the Vermont National Guard (but only the ones that are not greedy state workers.) They would not be needed, and besides hey would be on furlough,right? Motor vehicles, game wardens, Health and Human Services, Division of Children and Families, the Health Department, VOSHA, Fire Safety and all other workers affected by the furloughs shouldn't have to go anywhere which would take a tremendous load off our highways and might enable the gas stations as well as the merchants in the towns affected, to open a little later or in some cases, not at all. Shucks, the savings could be endless. In case of an emergency, we always have 9-1-1 to fall back on. Ooops, I'm sorry, those folks are state workers too. We could make sure that they put an "out of office" message on their phone lines that could redirect your call to an answering service in Pakistan or India. Besides, we could always make a citizen's arrest and march the scoundrels down to the Court House to stand tall before the judge. (Wait a minute, I forgot, the judges are on furlough along with the Attorney General and courtroom staff, scratch that.) If at the end of the 10 days, we find that we really don't need 'em, the cuts could be permanent and "Mad as heck" would become "Popular as heck" and get a lot of kudos from his fellow Vermonters who would be excited about all that money they are saving. If we find out that the experiment should be ended, maybe we could ask the state workers to come back until we want to stick it to them again. Sounds good. Git-r-dun. Monte Mason Morrisville
Token award To the editor: So, now the Nobel peace prize is awarded for someone's "potential"? What's next? Awarding high school graduates college degrees before they attend a university based on their "potential"? Awarding President Obama, a Nobel peace award diminishes the value of the award. Why? Because he didn't earn it. Exactly what has he accomplished (either before or during his presidency) ? If I am not mistaken, it takes 8 or 9 months to sift through the Nobel candidates prior to announcing the award. If that is true, then this 'award' was in the decision process this past January 2009. Which means there is even less hard 'accomplishment' data to justify the award. Else, the Democrats have figured out how to short circuit the award process. Either way, the Nobel award means much less than it used to. Burt Degraw Bristol

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tasking newspapers To the editor: What would you like to say?: "Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there is one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded faith."—Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826). In line with the quote above I would ask that people who are open minded enough to finish this letter go do some research and actively seek out the answers to the following questions. Why does the State of Vermont continue to increase spending and taxation when the population, workforce, income level, and industry in the state, are all decreasing? Why were Vermont's senators the only 2 of 100 senators to vote no on d-funding the criminal organization ACORN? What did they gain by this vote? Why did President Obama just allow the largest deployment of National Guard Troops in Vermont History, when he admittedly has no stated Strategy for Afghanistan? Why is the Health Care Overhaul bill now being written in behind closed doors in secret by democrats only? Why does the new Health Care Overhaul bill not cover 100 percent of the uninsured? Wasn't this the reason this was brought up in the first place? Why does it contain penalties and taxes on the best insurance coverage, while at the same time contain penalties and fines if you dare to choose not to carry insurance? Why is the question, "How will this be paid for?" Not answered or asked? Why do the taxes and fines for healthier start immediately while the spending not start until 2012 and 2013? Why is the Center for Disese Control studying the "health effects of owning a firearm", now when the fines and penalties for "unhealthy behavior" are being designed? Why are we not being given 72 hours as promised during the campaign to review new legislation? Why does the White house insist on forced equality in the place of freedom and choice in all its policies? Why is the White house singling out and attacking a cable news network? Is it because they don't like the questions they ask? Who will be attacked next for asking questions? Why are Fox News's ratings three times any other cable news networks ratings for any given demographic, including conservatives, liberals, and independents? Why are so Many people watching? Why is the White House reluctant to face tough questions? Why is no one in the press discussing why the FDIC is now bankrupt as of September 2009? Why is the Executive Branch, the branch of the government tasked with enforcing the laws by the Constitution, now stating it will not enforce medical marijuana? Why not just rescind the law as it should? Which law will be selectively enforced next? Tax laws for members of the administration and congress? Where will the money come from to pay for all the spending at the Federal level? Why is the press not pressing for answers for questions like these? Michael P. Grace Monkton
hen I walked into the Recital Hall in the Redstone campus at UVM last Friday evening for a concert by Peter Sykes, fortepiano , I was totally unfamiliar with the instrument, in the sense that I had never heard one in live recital. By the time Sykes had completed his pre-concert talk about the incident, I had become very well-equipped to understand the place of this instrument in the history of Western music, and to appreciate the music Sykes had programmed to aid the audience to hear what the hysterical music sounded like on this instrument. The whole evening was educational without being didactic and musically delightful. Sykes knows what he’s doing. A descendent not of the harpsichord, but of the clavichord , and capable of great dynamic changes without necessarily ever overriding even at its loudest forte an instrumental soloist or vocal soloist. The volume panel is restricted by the diameter of the strings and the general size of the total instrument. Sykes programmed music by CPE Bach, Haydn and Beethoven acquainting us with the music of the former composer and his place in the history of the development of music in the West and reacquainting us with the music of the two latter composers. It was an evening during which my appreciation for the burgeoning classical period achieved a perspective that heretofore was absent from my knowledge bank. Throughout the evening Sykes played impeccably, and with a sense of the music he had selected that rose to the highest peaks of musicianship. The music was both instructive and delightful. From the opening Sonata in C. minor by CPE Bach to the closing measures of his encore, a bagatelle, Sykes shone like the musical star he is, giving as not only an effective foray into the history of music, one that provided also a highly musical glimpse of the importance of CPE Bach, as well as a wonderfully exciting evening of music from the classical period. I should add that Sykes replaced the indisposed Andreas Staier, fortepiano, with only nine days notice, a feat in its own right. *********** On Saturday evening October 24, the Vermont Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its Music Director and principal conductor, Jaime Laredo,continued its celebration of its 75th anniversary with a concert that featured violinist Soovin Kim playing the Sibelius violin Concerto that he had been scheduled to play in 2008, but which playing had been rendered impossible by the loss of electricity at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. As Kim reminded the audience during the pre-concert talk, it was about 7:15 PM when the lights went out, and they should not count their chickens before that hour had safely come and gone. The delay of two years in hearing Kim’s playing of the Sibelius violin concerto was more than compensated for by the ardor and strength of his performance. He has almost miraculous technique at his fingertips and he uses that technique in the service of his musical understanding that is second to none. Even though for several small moments I felt a lack of continuity between the soloist and the orchestral accompaniment, it was
a remarkable reading of the score, filled with vigor and passion and, where applicable, grace and elegance, all played with a mastery of the concerto that is seldom heard. The first movement in particular can seem very disjunct, very pasted-together, making the score a veritable mares nest of difficult violinist perils. All of those Kim took care of by his very posture on the stage, one of great strength flowing up out of the earth, like a well-rounded singer, who draws sustenance from the earth below his feet. I had missed the postponed concert, but I was more than happy to have been present last night too heard this remarkable young violinist do such justice to one of the masterpieces of the violin repertoire. The opening work of the evening was by composer David Ludwig, entitled ‘Radiance’, a piece of about eight minutes duration for oboe soloist -- in this case the artist is principal although, Nancy Dimock. It is a mood piece, and without the composer’s attribution of the mood to the languor of summer, it could easily have been about a number of other subjects, all of which would have reasonably had the same effects. The scoring is appropriate to the concept, and the total effect of the work is soothing and well-composed, as have been all of the work by Ludwig. Dimock’s playing of the solo part fitted beautifully both in the concept and into the texture of the accompanying orchestra. The oboe sets the mood for the piece from its first note and Dimock accomplished that and a great deal more, making the piece the winner that it is. The program close with Robert Schumann’s Symphony number No. 3 in E. flat major, Op. 97subtitled the ‘Rhenish’. This work, unlike the Sibelius, is a very compact set of five movements, each of which seems textbook quality, while the truth of the matter is that within strict forms, Schumann created a masterpiece that both in its sole and in its parts reflect not only technical wisdom but great inspiration. The playing by the orchestra under Jaime Laredo was lively and full-bodied, and the orchestra -- especially the French horns -- made an incomparable sound that was so unified that it was hard to realize exactly what the scoring was that any single moment. Laredo obviously cares deeply about this piece of music, and this is what shone through with a clear, searching light. You orchestra’s celebration of its 75th year has been well begun. Burlington resident Dan Wolfe observes and critiques the local arts scene for The Eagle. His column appears weekly.

Redhawks dump on the Eagles By Frederick Pockette HINESBURG — By rule when a team with just one loss squares off against a winless one it usually isn’t pretty and last Saturday in Bristol was no exception. The Champlain Valley Union Redhawks improved to 7-1 by running for 320 yards and rolling over the hometown Eagles 62-0. Freshman running back Tyler Barnes led CVU’s deadly ground attack with 97 yards, 85 coming on two touchdown runs of 55 and 30 yards. J.P. Benoit matched Barnes two TD runs, while CVU quarterback ran for a 27 yard touchdown, and connected with Eric Palmer for a five yard scoring pass. The Redhawks also produced touchdown runs from back up quarterback Ian Solomon (31 yards,) runningback Collin Teator (5 yards) and running back Nick Menieur (1 yard). Mount Abraham dropped to 0-8 with the loss. The Middlebury Panthers pulled off a huge road win last Friday night, traveling to Bennington where they dispatched the hometown Mount Anthony Patriots 14-2. Brandan Burrell led Middlebury with 99 rushing yards and Marshall Hastings contributed another 82 rushing yards and a touchdown to the win. Kaden ODell added a rushing touchdown for the Tigers, who improved to 6-2 with the win. MUHS Tigers Behind Emmaleigh Loyer ’s unassisted goal the top seeded Champlain Valley Union Redhawks narrowly escaped a surprise upset bid by the eighth seeded Middlebury Tigers, and pulled off a narrow 1-0 quarterfinal win last Friday in post season field hockey action. Aubrey Deavitt made a key stop on defense in the second half, catching a sure game tying goal with her stick before it could break the plane of the goal. Elizabeth Goddette made five saves to earn the shutout for the 15-0 Redhawks, while Tiger goalie Kayla Whittemore kept her squad in the game by making 14 saves. The eighth seeded Tigers wrap up their season at 6-7-3. CVU had a semifinal date this past Wednesday with the winner of Mondays Mount Anthony VS Rutland quarterfinal game. A win there puts them in this weekends Division I State Championship. Redhawks Blank Falcons Goalie John Milbank made 10 saves to earn himself a shutout as his Champlain Valley Union Redhawks improved to 13-1 with a 4-0 blanking of the North Country Falcons last Saturday in boys high school soccer action. Kyle Logan, Mike Clayton and Nick Spencer scored goals for CVU, while Nick Hart added a pair of assists to the solid win. Falcons goalie John Milbank stopped 10 shots in the net. The Middlebury Tigers, who were at home, found themselves on the other end of the shutout last Saturday, losing 5-0 to Rice Memorial. Gavin Millay had a pair of goals while Shawn Hayes and Adam Geffkin added one goal and one as-
sist apiece to lead the Rice offense. Rice’s other goal came off the foot of Matt Levinsky and goalie Fred Torde made seven saves for Rice, who improved to 9-5 with the win. In Milton Friday night Drew Steady had a pair of assist and a goal to lead his Yellow Jackets to a 7-0 drubbing of the visiting Vergennes Commodores. Alex Ortega, Blake Begnoche, Sam Weaver, JP Cyr, Paul Donna and Anthony Campbell had the other goals for Milton who finished the season at 10-3-1 and their third straight Mountain Division title. Milton goalie Dylan Leggett needed to make just three saves to preserve the shutout. Charlie Stapleford stopped 15 shots for Vergennes, who finish their regular season at 2-12. CVU: Almost Perfect The Champlain Valley Union Redhawks girls soccer team needed just one more win or tie last Saturday to finish the regular season without a loss. They would not get it. Emma Feeney scored with 4:30 left in regulation and Seahorse goalie Stephanie Jaques made seven saves as Burlington handed CVU a 1-0 loss in their final regular season game. It was Jaques ninth shutout of the year and the win allowed the Seahorses to finish the year at 6-2-6. Emily Sackett made eight saves for CVU who enter the playoffs at 10-1-3. The Middlebury Tigers didn’t fare much better, losing on the road 5-2 to Rice. Brittany Pfaff led the Rice attack with a monstrous four goal game. Megan Beattie supplied the remaining goal for Rice, who enter the playoffs with a solid 12-2 record. Mattea Bagley and Ashley Meacham scored for the visiting Tigers. Friday wasn’t much of a night for girls soccer teams from Addison County, as the Mount Abraham Eagles joined CVU and Middlebury by losing 5-0 to Milton. Samantha Rock turned in the hat trick to lead Milton offensively. Gina Abbiati scored the remaining goal while Emma Stinson contributed an assist to the win. Hillary Turner had six saves for the Yellowjackets, who finish the regular season at 11-3. Shanna Gebo (four saves) and Gwen Merrill (three saves) were in net for Mount Abraham, who finish their regular season at the exact opposite 311. The Vergennes girls team made it a perfect 0-4 for Addison County when they loss at home 3-1 to the Lamoille Lancers. Ashley Jones notched a goal and an assist to lead Lamoile’s offense. Their remaining goals came from Heidi Fuller and Erin Stokes Lancer goalie Elise Coolbeth recorded 10 saves with the win. The Commodores lone goal came when Natalie McLay fed Kenadi Dattillio who turned the pass into a point. Christina Stinchfield stopped sixs in defeat.

Charlotte residents in Shelburne play
Charlotte residents David Harcourt and Peter Harrington have leading roles in Shelburne Players' fall thriller "An Inspector Calls". Harcourt plays the role of the mysterious Inspector Goole, who is investigating the death of a young girl in what a critic describes as "a mystery inside an enigma". He lives in Charlotte "with his wife, chickens, sheep, pony, and bees (in no particular order)". The Inspector is Harcourt's second excursion with the Shelburne Players. In last spring's production of "Much Ado About Nothing", he was cast in the roles of Friar and Sexton. Previously, he has performed in Charlotte Town Players presentations of "The Art of Dining" as Cal, in "Audience" as Merrill, and "The Purloined Circus" as Pinky. When not inspecting the Birlings family in "An Inspector Calls", he is a singer/guitarist at St Catherine of Sienna parish in Shelburne. Peter Harrington, who plays the role of Arthur Birling, is a long time participant in local theater. He has worked with many area companies, including Vermont Rep, Essex Players, Lyric, Northern Stage, Streetcar Company of Laconia New Hampshire, Fairfax Community Theater and in last springs' Shelburne Players' production "Much Ado About Nothing" as Conrade. Some of his favorite roles are Walter Hollander in "Don't Drink the Water", Ellwood P. Dowd in "Harvey", John Adams in "1776", and his recent ten-in-one turn with Kevin Christopher in Fairfax's "Greater Tuna." Peter is a Charlotte resident, where he "lives blissfully with his wife San, Simba the WonderDog, and Ellwood the Pooka Plagued Pussycat". "An Inspector Calls" by J.B. Priestley will be performed at the Shelburne Town Center, 5420 Shelburne Rd. in Shelburne, on Nov. 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Nov. 15.

Green fatigue: U.S. cooling on global warming WASHINGTON — According to the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, Americans are cooling on the topic of global warming. Last week’s poll results indicate what one pollster says is growing “green fatigue”. Falling 20 points in three years, according to Pew, just 57 percent of Americans now believe there is solid evidence for global warming. The number of Americans believe that human-induced pollution is to blame for climate change is also falling. The Pew poll included 1,500 adults with varying backgrounds. The new poll shows that the number of people claiming that the planet Earth has warmed in recent decades is down—from 77 percent in 2006 to 71 percent in April 2008. Some experts are blaming the poll results on the bad economy and on Americans’ change of focus, but others point to the “green fatigue” factor. “Americans are appear to be getting bored with the endless talk of climate Warm, change and with corporate Wooley and political green messagWinter Socks ing,” said non-partisan D.C. Great Selection! polster Thom Eisner. “I call this phenomenon green fatigue. Businesses have been patting themselves on the back about how wonderful they are for being ‘green’ *must be of equal and politcial messages of clior lesser price mate doom-and-gloom simply aren’t resonating with average Americans. Add to that these facts the mainstream scientists who have remained silent on the subject and the new Pew results aren’t surprising to me,” Eisner said.

Market failure in health care? F
our years ago then-Senate President Peter Welch, now Congressman, declared, not for the first time, that "the private sector approach [in health care] has failed." That assertion has been echoed repeatedly by all of the advocates of increased government control over health and medicine, culminating in a wholly government run health care system. It never seems to occur to such people that, while there remain private actors in the health care sector, that entire sector has been distorted, restricted, mandated and indeed corrupted by decades of government meddling. A century ago the American Medical Association, concerned that a glut of new doctors would drive down doctors' fees for service, conspired with doctor-dominated state medical licensing boards to restrict access to medical schools and limit the number of emerging MDs. Through most of the 20th century and even still the physician's guild successfully pressured their state boards to strictly control routine medical duties provided by nurses, deny licenses to doctors working on contract for fraternal lodges and cooperative hospitals, and discipline doctors using new technology that threatened to lower treatment costs and thus fees. Responding to pressure from interest groups, legislatures have insisted that health insurance policies cover over a thousand specific treatments. These include such things as in-vitro fertilization, hair replacement, pastoral counseling and childbirth, even for single men, infertile women, and couples in their sixties. Even more premium-inflating are guaranteed issue and
community rating. The first of these requires insurers to accept all comers, even those who skip buying insurance until they get sick. The second requires young people, just at the lower-income beginning of their working careers, and paying for college loans, home mortgages, and child rearing, to pay sharply higher premiums for the benefit of their sixtyish parents and grandparents who are almost inevitably better able to pay health insurance premiums. These "Robin Hood in Reverse" features are key provisions of ObamaCare. Then there is the disparate tax treatment of medical expenses. Thanks to wartime wage and price controls imposed by the Roosevelt administration in 1943, employerprovided health insurance became tax free to the employees. That benefit tied health insurance to employment, gave the power of choice to the employer, and denied portability when employees changed jobs. Individual insurance buyers must pay their premiums out of (diminished) after tax income. Tax free Health Savings Accounts, authorized by Congress in 2003, unfortunately cannot be used to pay premiums on the associated consumer driven health plans. Local citizen groups - based on churches, unions, fraternal lodges, and coops - might want to form health insurance buying pools and negotiate with insurers for good rates. State governments have made that illegal since the 1930s. Why not let Vermonters buy health insurance from carriers in the many states with far more reasonable insurance regulation? Many thousands of younger working people could save over two thirds of the cost of premiums they are now paying to Vermont's two remaining carriers. Forget it. No state presently allows its licensed carriers to ac-
cept bargain-hunting out of state customers. Modern pharmaceuticals can work wonders, but the cost of gaining FDA approval of a new drug runs well over $800 million. That's because the 1962 Kefauver amendment requires new drugs not only to be proven safe, but also effective. This ambiguous requirement dramatically escalates the cost of clinical testing, much of it now done in cheaper Third World countries. The large drug companies are happy with this requirement, however, because it erects an enormously expensive entry barrier to new drugs developed by their smaller competitors. Government drives health care costs far above market prices by sending millions of Medicare and Medicaid patients to health care providers, and paying far below the actual cost of the services rendered to them. Hospitals, required by the Hill-Burton Act to accept every patient that comes in the door, have no choice but to shift their losses into the price of care provided to patients with private insurance. This is the single most important factor in driving up private health insurance costs - far, far larger than the unpaid bills of uninsured patients. In most states, many doctors, especially obstetricians, anesthesiologists and neurosurgeons - face staggering medical malpractice premiums. This results from courts and juries imposing extravagant pain and suffering awards. The threat of malpractice litigation also leads doctors to run up the costs ("defensive medicine"). The high costs of health care and health insurance are due to market failure? Let's call it what it is: it's the failure of government, politicians and interest groups to allow competitive and efficient markets to satisfy consumer desires. John McClaughry is vice president of the Ethan Allen Institute (www.ethanallen.org).

AARP Vermont advises public on H1N1 flu With the arrival of the novel H1N1 (“swine flu”), many Vermonters are understandably confused about how to protect themselves against the flu this year. The heightened media attention to HINI and vaccine availability is only adding to the rising angst. AARP is working with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) to encourage older Americans to protect themselves and those in their care by getting vaccinated. Experts say that, this year, a seasonal flu vaccination for people 50 and over is as important as ever. Even before novel H1N1 became a threat, flu claimed an average of 36,000 lives and hospitalized more than 200,000 Americans every year. Health authorities have long recommended that people 50 and over get a seasonal flu vaccine each year. Experts also recommend people 65 and older get a pneumococcal vaccination, which they can get at the same time as their seasonal flu vaccination. Pneumococcus is a bacteria that can cause a range of conditions, including pneumococcal pneumonia, blood infection, and meningitis. Young children and people over 65 are the hardest hit. Both pneumococcal and seasonal flu vaccines are available now. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), older Americans are less likely to get sick from novel H1N1, perhaps due to exposure to a similar virus many years ago. However, they are more likely to suffer serious complications and
even death from seasonal flu. Vaccination is the first line of defense, but good hygiene habits, like frequent hand washing and covering your mouth when you cough are also important. If you get sick, antiviral medications are also available to help treat the flu. “We must not get distracted by H1N1—we must remember our annual seasonal flu vaccination,” Dave Reville, of AARP Vermont. “Pneumococcal vaccination is also important, and now is a great time to get both vaccines.” Last year in Vermont, 44 percent of adults age 50-64 and 73 percent of adults 65+ got vaccinated for influenza. Just over of 70 percent of adults 65+ received the pneumococcal vaccine last year. “Vaccination will help more Vermonters stay healthy this fall and winter, so that we can keep active and engaged – at home and at work,” said Greg Marchildon, AARP Vermont state director. “While it may take some time to get the vaccines here in Vermont, residents can stay informed on when and where the clinics will be held.” To find out where to go in Addison, Rutland and Chittenden counties, go to www.healthvermont.gov/prevent/flu or call 211 for information. Influenza and pneumococcal vaccines are free for anyone in Medicare and are available now at doctor ’s offices, pharmacies, and health departments in our area. For more information, speak with your healthcare provider or visit www.aarp.org/flu or www.nfid.org.
Free Swine flu shots Blue Cross/Blue Shield members only HINESBURG — An official of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont said the insurance provider will cover 100 percent of the cost of H1N1 flu vaccinations; it wants as many Blue Cross/Blue Shield members as possible to get the shot. The H1N1 flu is popularly called the Swine flu. Leigh Tofferi of Blue Cross/Blue Shield said members can receive the shot without a copayment, coinsurance or deductible and
regardless of their benefit coverage package. Tofferi said “Blue Cross will pay the allowed administrative cost and the federal government will pay for the vaccine when it becomes available.” Being the state’s largest private health insurance company, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont covers 180,000 Vermonters.

Area to receive transportation funds Grants are taxpayer funded Gov. Jim Douglas announced last week that the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) has awarded $3.9 million in Federal Transit Administration taxpayer-funded grants over the next three years to six public transportation providers to help them either start new or expand existing bus routes. “These grants will assist public transit providers across Vermont with their efforts to increase public transportation opportunities for the people of our state,” said Governor Jim Douglas. “These funds will also help us ease traffic congestion along some of our heaviest traveled routes and improve air quality.” Awards were made based on the provider ’s ability to mitigate congestion and its associated air quality impacts as well as their ability to show the viability and sustainability of the new or expanded route. “This money will help fund new or expanded public transit routes for the next three years,” said VTrans Secretary David Dill. “In many cases, partnerships between local employers and the public transit provider were established to ensure that the grant funding would stretch as far as possible, effectively serve the commuting-public, and have the greatest overall positive economic impact.” New or expanded routes to receive funding include: •Addison County Transit Resources will receive just over $250,000 annually for the next three years to expand service of its existing Burlington LINK shuttle, the Middlebury Shuttle, and the Tri-Town Shuttle. •Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) will receive approximately $695,000 each of the next three years to establish a Milton-to-Burlington LINK route in the same style as its popular Montpelier-to-Burlington LINK. CCTA will also use grant funds to establish regular service along the densely developed Route 2 Corridor between Burlington’s Cherry Street Station and Taft Corners in Williston. •Connecticut River Transit based in Rockingham and now operating as “The Current” was awarded $76,000 annually for the next three years to expand its successful Upper Valley Commuter route to more effectively serve the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center ’s workforce. •Rutland’s Marble Valley Regional Transit District will receive approximately $69,000 annually for the next three years to expand service by increasing the frequency of runs on the popular South Route component of their In-City fixed route services. •Stagecoach Transportation Services of Randolph will use their award of $68,000 for the next three years to establish a Montpelier-to-Randolph Commuter route along the I-89 Corridor. •Green Mountain Transit Agency, in partnership with Rural Community Transportation of St. Johnsbury, will use approximately $174,000 annually for the next three years to establish a commuter transit route along the busy Route 2 Corridor between St. Johnsbury and Montpelier.

commissioners to hear directly from judges, practitioners, academics, and other individuals about their experiences with, and suggestions regarding, federal sentencing policy." Sessions has served as a vice chairman of the U.S. Sentencing Commission since November 1999 when he was appointed to that post by President Clinton. Sessions was reappointed for a second term by President Bush in December 2003. He has served as a chief district court judge for the District of Vermont since July 2002, having served as a district court judge since 1995 when he was appointed to the federal bench by President Clinton. From 1978-1995, he was a partner with the Middlebury firm of Sessions, Keiner, Dumont & Barnes. Judge Sessions previously served in the Office of the Public Defender for Addison County, as a professor at the Vermont Law School, and as an officer in the United States Army. He served on the Judicial Branch Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States from 2002-2007, and currently serves as a member of the Judicial Conference of the United States and on the Second Circuit Judicial Council. Judge Sessions received a B.A. degree from Middlebury College and a J.D. degree from the George Washington School of Law. In 2007, Sessions ruled in favor of the Sierra Club, the states of Vermont and New York, and other environmental groups in rejecting the auto industry’s attempt to block states from regulating so-called global warming emissions from cars. Session’s emissions ruling opened the doors for New York and Vermont to proceed with enacting the California Clean Car (Pavley) Standards, pending EPA approval. These standards, adopted by California and at least 11 other states, are believed by some legislators and environmentalists to reduce global warming emissions from cars by 30 percent when fully implemented in 2016. The case was a watershed moment in the legal battle over the California Standards and had an important impact on similar cases in California and Rhode Island. The United States Sentencing Commission, an independent agency in the judicial branch of the federal government, was established in 1984 to develop a national sentencing strategy for the federal courts.
