Gov. Shumlin releases Vt. energy plan MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin, Public Service Commissioner Elizabeth Miller and other administration officials Dec. 15 released the final Comprehensive Energy Plan, which recommends that Vermont strive to obtain 90 percent of our total energy from renewable sources by 2050, largely eliminating Vermont’s reliance on fossil fuels by mid-century. “Vermont needs to move forward to protect our environment, gain greater energy independence, and drive innovation and jobs in the energy sectors. This Plan puts us on that path,” Gov. Shumlin said. “I am proud of the incredible work put in by the many agencies involved and the thousands of citizens who took the time to participate in shaping the ideas and actions that are included.” The Plan calls for enhanced efficiency, and greater use of clean, renewable sources for electricity, heating and transportation to meet this goal. The Plan also recognizes that Vermont must pursue its goals responsibly, ensuring overall energy costs for our businesses and residents remain regionally competitive. “We worked hard both at the Department of Public Service and in other state agencies and departments to create a robust public engagement process and to draft a Comprehensive Energy Plan that responds to Vermonters’ desire to increase usage of renewable energy for the benefit of our environment, our economy, and our long-term energy security,” said Elizabeth Miller, Commissioner of Public Service.

Club unhappy over state plans to include mountaintop wind power WOODSTOCK—Will Wiquist, executive director of the Green Mountain Club, expressed disappointment that the final Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan continues to include a provision which could open the door to wind development on

B&W Fuels, Inc.

lands owned and conserved by the public. While the rewritten clause highlights small-scale projects which are already permitted under the existing policy, it does not keep the door closed to major wind development on state lands. The plan recommends that the Agency of Natural Resources “consider revising and clarifying” its 2004 moratorium on large-scale wind development on ANRland.

“We are disappointed that the governor kept the door open to changing the wind moratorium without assurances that large-scale development will remain off the table,” said Wiquist. “State lands along Vermont’s high ridgeline were conserved by the Green Mountain Club and other groups in partnership with the state in order to protect the unique beauty of the mountains and preserve the hiking experience of the Long Trail. Taking a

step back from protecting these properties would not be in keeping with the purpose for which they were conserved.” The club also noted with concern that, while the previous plan referred to the 2004 policy as a “wind project moratorium,” it now calls it a “written policy on renewable energy projects.” During the public comment period for the plan, the club filed comments urging state energy planners to take

a step back from the suggestion that the wind development moratorium should be rescinded. The club is entrusted by the Vermont General Assembly “with the responsibility for the leadership in the development of policies” relating to The Long Trail which the club established and has maintained for the last century. Both clauses can be read side-by-side here: Clause in Final Plan: “(2) Given the potential benefits of renewable energy and the allowance of other types of development (such as telecommunication towers) permitted on public lands, ANR should consider revising and clarifying its December 2004 written poli-

cy on renewable energy projects sited on state lands, specifically with regard to net metered and small-scale projects.” Clause in Draft Plan: “(5) Given the potential benefits of wind power and the allowance of other types of renewable resources and other development (such as telecommunication towers) permitted on public lands, ANR should consider rescinding its December 2004 wind project moratorium on public lands; so long as the same level of scrutiny is provided to wind projects proposed for public lands as for other locations, there should be no automatic impediment to such projects.”

Pulp Mill Bridge to close Jan. 2 for repairs By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY—Starting Monday, Jan. 2, the historic Pulp Mill Bridge in Middlebury will be closed for repairs and restoration for an extended period of time,” according to Tom Scanlon, zoning/deputy health officer and town webmaster. “A definitive date for the opening will be announced once it’s clearly known.” The circa-1820 covered bridge will get a major face starting in 2012. Middlebury and Weybridge town officials said the ailing wooden bridge will be extensively rehabilitated, including fixing 19thcentury design errors. The construction project, scheduled for 2012 will cost $2.6 million. Construction will create some traffic snarls for commuters using the bridge which connects Middlebury and Weybridge. The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and is called a Burr-arch bridge.

Vt. roads safer than average MONTPELIER—U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray Lahood announced updated fatality and injury data showing that highway safety deaths fell to 32,885 for the year, the lowest level since 1949. When presented with this notable achievement, Vermont Department of Public Safety Commissioner Keith Flynn pointed out that 2010 Vermont traffic fatalities fell 4.1 percent from 2009, exceeding the national reduction by 1.2 percent. Flynn attributed, in part, the reason for the decline to collaborative efforts between traffic safety educators, law enforcement, traffic engineers and emergency medical responders. In addition, as of Dec. 15, Vermont agencies have reported 54 traffic fatalities. If this trend continues, 2011 will see the lowest number of roadway deaths since 1944, when 28 people were killed in traffic related incidents on Vermont's roads. Flynn challenged drivers and passengers, "to help make this the best traffic safety year in almost 70 years. Please wear your seatbelt, it's the best protection you have. Focus on safe driving and be aware of the dangers that winter weather brings."

From the Editor

Y2K12

M

MXII, Y2K12. Happy New Year 2012. The new year of 2012 A.D., or C.E. if you prefer, will mark several interesting events. First, some New Agers believe 2012 will mark the end of the world. It appears the mathematicians of Mesoamerica ran out of fingers, toes, and human sacrificial bodies to count past 2,012 (or however they reckoned our still-in-thefuture Anno Domini calendar) and thus— with no calendars to chisel out of lava rock—the planet Earth was predicted to vanish in an apocalyptic firestorm. Funny since similar predictions have been made by U.S. environmentalists since the 1970s. Another big event in 2012 to watch: April 15, 2012 will mark the centennial of the tragic sinking of the luxury liner RMS Titanic. Over 1,500 men, women and children died after the unsinkable jewel of the British maritime crown struck an iceberg off Cape Race, Newfoundland, in the Atlantic Ocean. The sinking of Titanic has captivated audiences young and old and spun off whole disaster industries. There are Titanic pop culture items from books, comics and television (let’s not forget scifi, disaster master Irwin Allen’s “The Time Tunnel” first broadcast in 1966 with a time-travel tale back to the Titanic) to silent and talking motion pictures. Among these unsinkable films are the dumbest—James Cameron’s "Titanic"— and the brightest, the 1958 Roy Ward Baker docudrama “A Night to Remember.” The funniest thing to look forward to in 2012 is the ironic change in the date of the State of the Union Address before the U.S. Congress. Several online sources indicate both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address will occur on the same day next year (but don't take our word). If so, then as the satirical Thunder Mug website put it, “This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelli-

gence for prognostication. The other involves a rodent.” On Feb. 6 Queen Elizabeth II will mark her Diamond Jubilee or 60th anniversary of accession to the thrones of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Unlike our leaders, it’s impossible to come up with comic one liners about this cheerless anachronism. Alas, English playwright Noel Coward noted, “It isn't that I have a basic urge to tell disgusting jokes... every five minutes (when in the presence of the Queen), but I'm conscious of a faint resentment that I couldn’t if I wanted to.” Remember those giant international expositions known as world’s fairs? Well, they are making a comeback. The world’s fair movement has picked up steam with several fairs planned for this decade. The 2012 World Expo opens in South Korea May 12. Alas, don’t expect to find fairgoers chowing down delicious Belgium waffles at this Asian expo. But how do kimchi wraps grab ya? A few more Y2K12 items on my checklist: •The 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in London July 27. A rubberized British mac is not quite what I think about when it comes to Olympic wetwear. •Automotive giant General Motors, bailed out by taxpayers in 2009, will pay off its remaining debt. Even as a leaner G.M., the company will displace Toyota as the world’s number one car maker in 2012—a stunning, welcome turnaround for one of America’s industrial keystones. •The IBM Sequoia peta-scale super computer will be fully deployed by the U.S. Government in 2012. It will be used for scientific and engineering purposes such as astronomy, energy, genome studies, and climate modeling. •Last but not least, 2012 will be a watershed election year. American voters are facing a fork in the road: more government or less government. Either way, the nation’s staggering debt looms large in our rearview mirror. Get ready, get set. It all starts Jan. 1. Lou Varricchio

Christmas every day

F

orty-five years ago, a man bought many acres of land—an entire mountainside, actually. Thirty-five years ago, my folks bought a small number of the man’s acres and built a home on them. I was already out living on my own, but I stored my dirt bike at my folks’ home. On visits I’d get on my bike and zoom the side of the mountain, following log roads that the man hoped would one day lead to many beautiful house lots, carefully planned, and sparsely and expertly set, all the way up to the top of the 2,300-foot-high Worcester Ridge. Months passed and the roads stretched farther up the mountain. On my dirt bike rides, I’d go and go till the logging roads petered out. Then I’d shut down my bike, rest, and look out across the valley to a majestic western view of Camel’s Hump, Mt. Mansfield, Sterling Ridge, and more north, all the way to Lowell mines. The views were awesome, and I dreamt the best thing in the world would be to one day become rich so I could afford land with such a fantastic view. Age 44, with a dying dad, not rich, but rich enough, after weeks of searching for reasons why, I called the man to ask if he "had any of them lots up on the ridge near my folks” available to buy. He did, and almost nine years ago, on a very cold and brilliant sunny day, the 83year-old man and I snowshoed to lot 16, where the view from 1,497 feet above sea level was one I’d recognized from rests I'd taken during my long-ago dirt bike rides. Four minutes after arriving at the heart of the lot, the older man and I shook hands on a deal for my purchasing lot 16. Luck struck my way one day in the form

of the town select people setting 1,500 feet as the highest elevation one can build along the steep winding road to the ridge. Thanks to the older man, my folks, the town select people, even myself I guess, and actually many, many, many humans I know and don't know, I have a 200-acre back yard and mountain preserve, with views up the ying-yang, all to myself. I’ve driven my truck, a car, a four-wheeler, and a snow machine up the mountain behind my house dozens of times. Hundreds of times I’ve hiked, ran, and mountain biked it, all the way to the 2,300-foot ridge, that offers views west across Mt. Mansfield toward Lake Champlain, and east out across to the Presidential Range—if you can believe that. You know when you’re really, really thirsty, you take a drink of fresh clean cold water, and after the final gulp you experience a few seconds when you aren’t able to speak, and your breathing slows down, and you close your eyes, and you’re totally in awe of life itself? That’s how I feel every time I summit the Worcester Ridge. Yup, up here on the Worcester Ridge, it’s Christmas every day.

VT. bans several ‘designer’ drugs BURLINGTON — The Vermont Department of Health has banned the use, sale, possession or manufacture of many of the new designer drugs labeled “not for human consumption.” These drugs have been sold in head shops and over the Internet to get around regulations and laws in Ver-

mont. “Bath salts,” Salvia divinorum, and five synthetic cannabinoids are now illegal in Vermont with an amendment to the Regulated Drugs Rule effective Dec. 16. The use of so-called “Bath salts” has spiked regionally and nationally. The Northern New England Poison

Center has recorded nearly 200 cases (147 in Maine, 35 in New Hampshire and 11 in Vermont) as of November 2011. This represents only a small fraction of the overall abuse. Nationally, reported cases have increased from 303 in 2010 to 4,720 in 2011.

Changing of the guard at County Tire By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY—One of Addison County’s largest auto and truck tire and service shops is making a major front-line change in 2012. County Tire Center, Inc., of Middlebury, established in 1982 by Steve Dupoise, Sr., is changing hands. Steve, Sr., has sold the popular business to his son, Steve Dupoise. The younger Dupoise, who first apprenticed with his father beginning in 1998, is taking over the retailer ’s helm. “We’ve been planning this change for over a year,” said Steve Dupoise, Sr. “The official change starts Jan. 1.” Steve Dupoise, Sr., purchased County Tire from founder Joe Bak. He transformed it from a small local shop into a regional auto tire and service powerhouse with a dozen full-time employees and several part-time workers. Customers, some of them seasonal, come from as far away as Virginia and Quebec to have their cars serviced and tires replaced. The senior Dupoise’s replacement, Steve Dupoise—he doesn’t use the popular, albeit erroneous, “Steve, Jr.” moniker—is ready for the change-incommand. “I learned the business from my dad from the bottom up,” he said. “Our customers won’t see a change except that we’re even more dedicated to helping them get the best quality and best value products for their vehicles.”

Steve may have learned about honesty and integrity as a little shaver growing up at his father ’s and mother ’s side, but he learned the business ropes dealing face-to-face with the public. He is also a firm believer in the “learn-by-doing” approach to life as well as business. He has traveled to Finland to learn, first hand, how international tire giant Nokian makes tires using new, green technology. Thus, he understands how these and other tires are made and which best suit various vehicles. And County Tire’s young new owner has come a long way away from the days as a student at the New England Culinary Institute. He may have changed his career path from gourmet chef to independent businessman, but he hasn’t looked back much. “I still like to cook, but I am here and this is my passion,” he said. “Since I started there has been a big growth in tire brands, more and different size, etc. Far more choices and better-made products. This is important because it gives more options to help customers.” Another change at County Tire has been the retirement of the elder Dupoise, Francis Dupoise—paternal grandfather of Steve the younger. “My grandfather drove our courtesy van for years,” said Dupoise. “Customers got to know him and like him. He always smiles and is great with the public. But he decided to stop driving this year, take it easy, now that he has turned 92.”

Francis and wife Helen are well liked by many County Tire customers and others around Addison County. The nonagenarian Francis is best remembered as former head of human resources at the now shuttered Polymers Middlebury plant located on Route 116. With grandfather and father stepping back, new owner Steve Dupoise is ready for his time at bat. His wife, Lisa, will also be a part of the County Tire office team, much like his mother, Marcia, was when his father was owner. It’s unknown if Steve the younger ’s children will learn the business, but it appears they’ll get the opportunity when and if they’re interested. “It’s always been a family business. So, my father and mother won’t be strangers,” the new owner said. Retiring owner Steve Dupoise, Sr., will remain part-time at County Tire for an undetermined period. He will also be kept busy managing the Dupoise’s nearby Ethan Allen Storage and Train Depot businesses. “County Tire is a great business and I’ve enjoyed managing it, but I am really looking forward to weekends off,” the senior Dupoise said. “You know— mow the lawn, visit Florida. But I’ll still be around. I’ll be working part time as a tire buyer plus helping in the garage.” At least when it comes to the Dupoise family, there’s an old idiom that says it best: “You can’t keep a good man down.”

In search of Earth II with the Kepler Space Telescope

B

ig news flashed around the world of astronomy earlier this month. The NASA Kepler Space Telescope, launched in 2009 into an heliocentric orbit, confirmed the detection of the spacecraft’s first Earth-like extrasolar planet. It was initially located a few months after launch. The planet has been christened Kepler 22B. Kepler 22B is located 587 light years away from us. It is orbiting a G-type, Sunlike star named Kepler 22. The Kepler 22 star is just slightly smaller and a tad cooler than Sol. This yellow sun is located between the constellations Cygnus and Lyra. If you’re an amateur astronomer, here are the Kepler 22 coordinates for your backyard telescope: Right Ascension 19h 16m 52.2sec, Declination +47deg 53min 4.2sec. (Note: Kepler 22 is a very dim star as viewed from Earth.) The planet Kepler 22B, NASA reports, is 15 percent closer to its home star as Earth is to its star. And while Earth’s year lasts 365 days, Kepler 22B’s year is shorter—290 days. Let’s consider the term “Earth-like plan-

et” that we hear in the news. It requires some explaining, especially in light of news reports. And of course, NASA doesn’t shy from a little extra public relations spin, if you’ll pardon the planetary pun. So, let’s review the tantalizing data NASA has released about this new planet—so far. Kepler-22B’s Earth-like qualities must be taken with a grain of salt. Why would I say this? Well, what astronomers consider to be “Earth like” may be downright hostile to the average Earthling looking for Earth II to colonize. Is Kepler 22B, with 2.4 times the radius of Earth (about half the radius of gas giant Neptune), all that Earth like when you really get right down to it? Maybe, maybe not; at this time, Kepler 22B’s mass and composition are unknown, so there’s very little data to talk about although speculation is rampant. It has been estimated that the new planet is probably closer in appearance to Neptune than it is to our Earth. This means that Kepler 22B has a mass of approximately 35 Terra masses. Several space scientists have

gone far out on a limb and said the new planet could be a giant water world of 10 Earth masses, but this must be seen for what it is—far out speculation. And because this planet appears so much more massive than the Earth, it means it isn’t going to have our familiar terrestrial composition. NASA project scientist Dr. Natalie Batalha thinks Kepler 22B may have a small rocky core and surrounded by a vast ocean. “It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that life could exist in such an ocean,” Dr. Batalha told reporters two weeks ago. “Without an atmosphere, the equilibrium temperature would be approximately minus 11°C. If the atmosphere provides a greenhouse effect similar to Earth’s, the planet would have an average surface temperature of 22 °C (72°F).” Given NASA’s data so far (it’s solid but limited until more data is collected this summer), plus this writer ’s skepticism, it’s simply too soon to know if Dr. Batalha’s bold statements are valid. Getting an Earth-like planet to be “spot

on” Terra Firma’s specs should require much tighter parameters in this writer ’s view. For example: We don’t know much about Kepler-22B’s orbital path. If it moves along a highly elongated orbital path, it could be within Kepler 22’s habitable zone for only a brief period of time, thus dashing hopes for life as we know it. Be that as it may, don’t let me be the extrasolar planetary party pooper. This is a significant discovery for NASA and it’s exciting for researchers who are scrambling to keep up with the growing list of new planetary discoveries. Today is a thrilling time to be a planetary astronomer.

Sophie Clarke from page 1 Clarke also got a chance to mention her hometown during the finale. “It was so nice to mention Willsboro on national television when Jeff (Probst, the shows host) brought it up,” Clarke said. Clarke said that she was able to use the skills that she learned growing up in the small town of Willsboro to her advantage during the show, including learning how to be a part of a group with different ideals. “If you look at the alliance I created there, I had a pact with a rancher, a ‘dragon slayer,’ a dating coach and a 19-year-old with two kids, 50 tattoos and a wife. At times, it was hard group of people to be around.” Clarke said that Willsboro helped her to mix with that variety of people. “There’s not enough people to pick your friends,” Clarke said. “That was probably one of the weirdest alliances in ‘Survivor ’ history. I grew to really appreciate everybody out there. Willsboro helped with that.” Clarke said that because of her alliance, the strategy was able to remain the same throughout the season. “I realized I was in this alliance of people that were not going to go back on there word with me,” Clarke said. “I saw this very clear path to the final six. When I got there, it was like an onion; there were alliances within alliances, and I was fortunate to be a part of each one of them.” While Clarke received a lot of support and well-wishes from Willsboro, she said that her friends at med school in New York City were a lot more aloof to her exploits. “People in my medical school were not that into the show,” she said. “A lot of them really didn’t know that I was on it. They know now. It was nice to do my thing and go to class and study, on Wednesday night be on national television and then go back to being with my friends the next day.” Clarke said that she felt her road to the prize was made complete in the final immunity challenge, when she beat her toughest competition and fan favorite, Ozzy Lusth, in a puzzle. “I knew that if I lost that challenge, I was going home that night,” Clarke said. “It was like penalty kicks in a soccer game. This was the last shot I had to win it or go home. Ozzy was going to walk away with it. That was a million dollar challenge for Ozzy, and it turned out to be a million-dollar challenge for me, too.” Now that she’s in med school, Clarke said the bulk of her money will go toward college expenses, but she will definitely keep some to splurge. “I like the idea of just getting a ticket and going somewhere,” she said. “I would like to splurge and do something that I would have never done and just go somewhere.” As for a return to her hometown, Clarke, who made an appearance at Johnny’s Restaurant during Thanksgiving break, said that she will be home for the last part of the hol-

Guest Viewpoint:

Legislature needs to strengthen embezzlement laws In recent years, there's been a significant increase in embezzlements in Vermont. Last year Auditor Tom Salmon created a ten member Vermont Municipal Advisory Committee to address embezzlement. This committee included town treasurers, city finance directors, two admitted embezzlers and Don Keelan the CPA advisor for the committee. Subsequently, the committee created a two-page internal control checklist which was sent to municipal officials who were responsible for cash resources in their community. The committee recommended town and school board officials obtain continuing education of three to six hours on internal controls over money. According to Keelan, the following list of embezzlements in recent years were presented to the Legislature. The information that he presented included the position, amount stolen and town:

Child Services, $490,000, Newport Office Manager, $1.5 million, Hardwick Town Treasurer, $404,000, Ira Sheriff, $65,000, Windsor Town Clerk/Treasurer, $100,000, Isle Lamont Town Clerk, $200,000, Bakersfield Village Treasurer, $110,000, Old Bennington Office Manager, $290,000, Burlington Bookkeeper, $42,000, Addison The above embezzled amounts total over $3 million. According to Keelan the attitude toward embezzlement is as follows: We are sorry you need the money; maybe you can pay it back; we won't collect income taxes on your ill gotten gains; we will ask you to do community service; yours was not a crime of violence. The legislation this year will call for a certified or public accountant to audit municipal accounts. In addition a legislative body of a municipality may contract with a public accountant, to provide an annual financial audit on petition of five percent of the legal voters.

December 24, 2011

Audits performed would have to be in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards including a report on internal control of financial reporting. If there were material weaknesses, or sufficient deficiencies found by the voters, the following would take place: 1. the auditor or public accountant would present the findings to the legislative body of the town and explain the weaknesses or deficiencies; when the letter or report is delivered, the notice of the next meeting of the legislative body should also notify the voters of the audit report. 2. The next annual report of the town would include a summary of the deficiencies found in the internal controls of the financial reporting; 3. The legislative body would be required to post an audit report and this report would have to he put on the municipal website if the municipality has a website" With respect to penalties the following is a summary of penalties in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine: In Vermont the penalty for embezzlement is “imprisonment for not more than 10 years

and a fine of not more than $1,000 or both.” The penalty is about the same regardless of the circumstances of the crime or the amount of money involved. In New Hampshire and Maine the penalty varies and depends on the amount of money embezzled. For example, in New Hampshire the embezzlement is a one year misdemeanor if the amount does not exceed $1,000; a seven year felony over $1,000; but not more than $1,500 if a 15-year penalty; and a 20-year felony if a deadly weapon is involved. Penalties in Maine are somewhat similar to New Hampshire law. The information we have about embezzlement indicates we should strengthen the law and enact legislation this year. The legislature could consider some aspects of the Maine or New Hampshire law. I support stronger legislation and will work for its passage. State Sen. Bill Doyle Editor’s Note: Sen. Bill Doyle (R) is the Vermont Senate Minority Leader and teaches government and history at Johnson State College.

Maple Sugar Bowl directors named

MONTPELIER—The athletic directors for the 2012 Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl have been announced and together they bring many years of experience working with young people in football as well as with the Shrine Game. Jim Taft, long-time, respected football coach at Windsor High School, will again serve as A.D. for the Vermont Shrine Team, a position he has held for the past five years, while Gary Mayo of Lebanon takes over as the NH Athletic Director. Mayo was a member of the 2011 New Hampshire Shrine Coaching staff. Since 1999 he has served as Head Coach for the Lebanon Middle School and as a volunteer assistant for the high school team. Mayo also has had a long association with Special Olympics both in New Hampshire and nationally. Earlier this year Mayo was honored with the James “Red” Hayes Award for Community Support of Athletics by the National Football Foundation, NH Chapter. He is a 1977 graduate of Dartmouth and the owner of A.B. Gile Insurance in Lebanon. In announcing the athletic directors, Wayne Shepard said, “We are very fortunate to have two men of the caliber of Jim and Gary to work with our Coaches and on the many facets of putting on a football game.” The summer classic, which brings together the finest high school football players in New Hampshire and Vermont, will be played here at Dartmouth on Memorial Field on Saturday, Aug. 4. Over 200 players from Vermont and New Hampshire, all graduating high school seniors, have already been nominated by their respective head coaches, and screening committees, chaired by the two head coaches, will select the two 36man teams later this month. The Shrine Game has raised over five million for the Shrine Hospitals for Children in 58 years. The hospitals, which benefit from the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, are the Shrine Children’s Hospitals in Springfield, Mass. and Montreal, Que. and the Shrine Burns Institute in Boston.

Panther basketball team building on success

MIDDLEBURY—The Middlebury College Men's Basketball team, which is currently ranked No. 1 in Division III, recently won back-to-back games against Johnson & Wales and Skidmore College, to improve its undefeated record to 7-0. In a home match up with Johnson & Wales, the Panthers came out hot in their home Pepin Gym, racking up 51 points in the first half, while executing a stifling defense which would produce a whopping 34-point halftime lead at 51-17. Three days later at Skidmore College in Saratoga, N.Y., the Panthers had a much together challenge, holding off the Thoroughbreds in a tight, 64-59 win. The two teams went back-and-forth throughout the contest, and were deadlocked at 30 at halftime. In fact, neither team could build more than a 3-point lead through three quarters. At press time, Middlebury remains undefeated (7-0) on the season. As the team goes into Christmas break, they will next take on Curry College at home, on Dec. 29.

Energy plan from page 1

The Plan explains that, across all fuel sectors, Vermont currently utilizes about a quarter renewable energy for its needs. Moving from nearly a quarter renewable energy now to nearly fossil-fuel free by 2050 will: •Foster job growth, economic security and independence by creating jobs in efficiency and local renewable energy projects; by keeping our dollars closer to home; and by cutting our dependence on dirty price-volatile fossil fuels. •Safeguard our environmental legacy by reducing our contribution to global climate change and leading by example in the fight to keep our planet safe and habitable for generations to come. •Keep Vermonters’ dollar instate, drive in-state innovation and job creation by showing that investments in efficiency and renewable energy, which help our environment and energy independence, also help our economy. •Increase community involve-

ment and investment by engaging Vermonters in our energy choices. This marks the first Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan since the late 1990s. The Plan covers electricity, heating and process fuels, and energy in transportation and land use decisions. The Department of Public Service, charged by statute to create a statewide Plan, led a multiagency initiative that involved robust public outreach and garnered over 9,000 comments from Vermonters on a variety of energy issues facing the state. Vermont currently obtains almost a quarter of its energy from renewable sources, due in large part to the electric portfolio, which is comprised of nearly 50 percent renewable sources. Great progress has been made in electric efficiency, keeping Vermont’s electric demand down. However, comparatively little progress has been made on obtaining transportation and heating from renewable sources. The Plan calls for greater progress in these sectors to benefit Vermont’s environment, comfort, and affordability.
