Remembering Jim Callahan By Lou Varricchio EDITOR
MIDDLEBURY | Educator, mathematician, former Mary Hogan Elementary School principal, and past member of the Middlebury School Board, James “Jim” Callahan, 83, passed away on Aug. 8, 2019. A long-time Middlebury resident, Callahan was a native of Winchester, Massachusetts; he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Lowell State College, Salem State College and Boston University. He became a teacher and later a school administrator starting in the 1960s. After years as principal at Mary Hogan, he became an instructional-materials author and owner of Callahan Associates, a Middlebury-based education consulting and mathematics tutoring firm. Callahan taught and consulted around New England and traveled even as far as Alaska. He assisted teachers in craft ing successful mathematics programs for young students.
MIDDLEBURY | A new forecast by regional dairy co-op powerhouse Agri-Mark may come as good news to Addison County dairy farmers: an Agri-Mark economist is predicting that wholesale milk prices will increase in 2020. But don’t guzzle the milk shakes just yet: While Agri-Mark’s forecast means dairy prices will likely recover after five years of decline, the improvement is rather anemic. Catherine de Ronde, the senior economist at Agri-Mark, was interviewed by Vermont Public Radio last week. She told VPR that she expects the average price per hundredweight of milk to increase from approximately $18 to $19; this is a modest boost. Milk production has been flat since 2017, according to Vermont and USDA data. “You know, unfortunately, sometimes where that milk production decline is coming from is the loss of farms, of course,” she told VPR. The state’s Agency of Agriculture reported recently that 25 farms closed here between January through July. “On the price side, international sales of U.S. milk products could increase demand and boost prices. But de Ronde said trade tensions with China complicate the forecast,” VPR’s John Dillon reported on Aug. 5. ■

Bridport Fairy Tale Farm wins national cheese award By Lou Varricchio EDITOR
BRIDPORT | Dairy farmers of the state of Wisconsin may pride themselves as members of the cheeseiest state in the union, but this month Vermont farmers showed themselves to be the new “big cheeses” on the block to watch out for. Among these “big cheeses” is Bridport’s Fairy Tale Farm. The farm’s Nuberu cheese place no. 2 among hundreds of entries. A record was set for Vermont cheeses at the prestigious American Cheese Society’s annual awards competition in Richmond, Virginia, recently. According to Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts, local producers collectively took home 44 ribbons, marking Vermont’s best showing to date. Additionally, five Vermont cheeses were finalists for the Best of Show.

“These awards reinforce Vermont’s commitment to quality, which starts with the farmer, on the farm, and is carried right through until the cheese is served,“ Tebbetts said. “Many thanks to the cheesemakers and the Vermont Cheese Council for their hard work helping Vermont’s economy grow by continuing to reinforce and grow the quality of Vermont products.” There were more 2,000 entries at the 2019 awards event with 25 Vermont companies submitting cheeses to be judged.

Addison County 's Humane Society
236 Boardman Street, Middlebury 802.388.1100, ext. 232 homewardboundanimals.org MIDDLEBURY | Avi is a gorgeous older fellow who is looking for a new home because his guardians are moving to an apartment that doesn’t allow Avi’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle. True to his Bengal nature, Avi is an incredibly smart, active cat with an affectionate and curious personality. He thrives in an indoor/ outdoor environment where he can come and go as he pleases through a cat door. Avi doesn’t have experience with other cats and dogs and would likely prefer to be the only pet in the house, however he does have experience with children. He hides from young children that he doesn’t know, but his curiosity gets the better of him with older children so it doesn’t take long for him to come out to investigate! Avi does tend to be a little on the nervous side so his current guardians make good use of pheromone diffusers throughout the house- a tool that Avi’s new family will likely want to continue using. Avi is staying with his guardian while we help to fi nd him a new home. If you would like to learn more about Avi or make arrangements to meet him, contact his guardian at phil.hammerslough@gmail. com or 802-233-9143. –You can include Homeward Bound in your will.

Addison County Fair & Field Days 2019 By Lou Varricchio EDITOR
NEW HAVEN | The Eagle newspaper salutes the management, staff and volunteers of the Addison County Fair & Field Days. All the folks involved put a lot of heart and soul into this the greatest of Vermont’s agriculture fairs and an annual must-see regional happening. Vermont’s largest agricultural fair marked another milestone year in 2019. And while warm temperatures, sunshine, clouds and rain seem
to go along with the annual, early August week scheduled for Addison County Fair and Field Days, this year continued an agricultural tradition so many residents cherished. For many farming families, Field Days is an annual social event that brings the agricultural community of Addison County together for a few, fun days. For others, the event is a time for fair food—fried dough, candy apples and cotton candy—souvenirs, amusement rides, animal shows, and tractor pulls. A lot of unsolicited praise is
heaped, deservedly, on Field Days. For example, this unidentified mother posted her comment on the fair’s Facebook page: “My family loves this fair. We first went last year as an alternative to the too large (for a toddler) Champlain Valley Fair, and went again this year. The fair is small enough to not have to worry about getting lost, has just enough rides for a two-and-a-half year old, and is fairly affordable- little ones are free, I think it was three and under. The kids area with games (like giant bubble makers) and farm animals to pet was included in the
price of admission. There is also a nice, cool and clean comfort zone to change diapers and nurse a baby (this year we had a newborn added to our family). There were enough picnic tables around, too, if you wanted to bring your own lunch instead of buying fair food. I highly recommend this fair; great people and (a) hometown feel.” This year’s fair was no exception but with a few surprises to always keep things interesting. While attendance figures were not available at press time, there is every indication that Field Days had a successful late summer run. ■

The volcanoes of August August is the month for two historic and explosive volcanic eruptions: Vesuvius in Italy in A.D. 79 and Krakatoa, west of Java — actually three volcanoes on a small island which exploded simultaneously — in 1883. Here in Vermont, we don’t think much about volcanoes, only tropical storms, blizzards and an occasional earthquake. Only a few remnants of ancient volcanoes are to be found in the Green Mountain State. The beautiful greenstone rocks, which appear in southeastern Addison County and follow the White River Valley, are all that remain of primordial lava flows. These rocks are now greatly altered by metamorphism. Some of the rocks found along the Green Mountains range are “metavolcanic”, too. Majestic Mt. Ascutney in the southeastern part of Vermont is an example of an ancient magma chamber that once fed a giant stratovolcano in long-vanished times.
A few igneous intrusions in the low cliff running along the westside of U.S. Route 7 south of the Rutland Regional Airport point to lava feeder pipes, while Omya’s underground marble quarry in Rutland County displays a vein of basaltic lava rock, again, flowing from some long vanished Vesuvius. In neighboring New Hampshire, you’ll have better luck looking for signs of old volcanoes. You can visit an ancient volcanic vent in the White Mountains near Mt. Washington while the nearby Ossipee ring is a large ancient caldera with a hiking trail. But beyond these nearby examples, little remains of our region’s violent, eruptive past. Rarely discussed are 20 extinct volcanoes, known collectively as the New England Seamounts, which are submerged off Massachusetts. Amazingly, many of these mounts still retain their conical above-ground shapes even after 80 million years. This editor has stood on the summit of Vesuvius, alongside other tourists, and stared into the mountain’s still-steaming crater. It’s a popular sightseeing
stop but remains a dangerous place with poison gases and the promise of renewed activity. Tourists, too, have visited Indonesia’s “Son of Krakatoa” island at least up until its Dec. 22, 2018, eruption. A magma chamber still feeds the reborn island of Krakatoa. And after the big eruption and deadly tsunami of last year, the island looks greatly diminished now; it is rebuilding, yet again, for another whopper of an explosion. Krakatoa has lost about two-thirds of its height since 2018. For the many people who live under the shadows of these August volcanoes, the next eruption is always just around the corner. While I don’t worry about such death and destruction living here in Vermont, all this cataclysmic talk of my volcanoes of August makes me think of singer Jimmy Buffet’s popular 1979 song “Volcano” — “Now I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know where I’m a gonna go when the volcano blow.” – The editor ■
Vermonters need relief from Rx greed By Linda Bowden
A ARP PRESIDENT, VERMONT
For decades, Big Pharma has raised drug prices with impunity. Here in Vermont the average annual cost of brand name prescription drug treatment increased 58% between 2012 and 2017, while the annual income for Vermonters increased only 11.5%. Prescription drugs don’t work if patients can’t afford them. That’s why the Senate needs to pass the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act when they return from August recess. It’s time. We urge Sens. Leahy and Sanders to back this vital legislation, which passed the Senate Finance Committee in July with strong bipartisan support, and to support allowing Medicare to negotiate with drug companies for lower prices. For too long, drug companies
have been price gouging seniors and hardworking Americans. Consider insulin, which people with diabetes rely on. Its price nearly tripled from 2002 to 2013. But it isn’t a breakthrough drug: insulin was invented nearly a century ago, yet modern formulations remain under patent, thanks to drug makers manipulating the system. Some patients trek to Canada, while others risk their lives by rationing or skipping doses. Even those of us who don’t need insulin or other prescription drugs are affected by skyrocketing drug prices. We pay not only at the pharmacy counter, but through higher insurance premiums, and through the higher taxes we need to pay to fund programs like Medicare and Medicaid. Older Americans are hit especially hard. Medicare Part D enrollees take an average of 4-5 prescriptions per month, and their average annual income is around
$26,000. One in three Americans has not taken a medication as prescribed because of the cost. The root cause of the problem is clear: the high prices of prescription drugs set by pharmaceutical companies when they first come on the market, which then increase faster than inflation year after year. In March A ARP launched a nationwide campaign called “Stop Rx Greed” to rein in drug prices for all Vermonters and all Americans. The bill under consideration in the Senate would cap out-of-pocket drug costs for seniors and crack down on drug makers whose price hikes outpace inflation. The nation clearly needs this reform: the average drug price increase in the first six months of 2019 was 10.5% -- five times the rate of inflation! Vermonters, like all Americans, already pay among the highest drug prices in the world.

Drug giants Merck, Amgen and Eli Lilly actually sued the Trump administration so they could keep the list prices of their drugs secret from the public. The industry is spending record sums to hire Washington lobbyists, and they are running ads claiming that more affordable drugs will actually harm consumers. But the tide is turning. The National Academy for State Health Policy reports that, so far this year, 29 states have passed 47 new laws aimed at lowering prices for prescription medications. Ultimately, drug costs are a national issue, so federal action is equally essential. In D.C., there is rare bipartisan agreement that something must be done. We urge the Senate to pass the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act in the fall, when the House is expected to act on its own drug pricing bill. ■

Young 1800s inventor John Deere poses with his plow in Middlebury College Museum of Art’s rare daguerreotype collection. The photo debuted in the museum’s exhibition, “American Faces”, in 2017. “Deere’s career began in Middlebury where he served as an apprentice for Benjamin Lawrence, a local blacksmith... It was not until his adulthood that Deere relocated to Illinois and donned the cap of inventor for building the iconic and, literally, groundbreaking steel moldboard plow,” according to the college’s Ava Freeman.

He was also instrumental in developing a youth ice hockey program in the Middlebury area. Callahan was an honored veteran of the U.S. Air Force and served as an advanced aviation technician in Thule, Greenland, during the Cold War era. Callahan wrote the “Learning Curve” column for the Vermont Eagle newspaper and also appeared on Middlebury Community TV’s “Learning Curve” program between 2010 and 2013. By his own account, he taught over 30,000 lessons with, and for, teachers in elementary and middle-school classes in many schools involving mathematics. To the delight of students he tutored, his email moniker—which to some conjured up an imaginary math-problem solving superhero—was “Math Man”. Concerned about mediocrity in public schools, Callahan was a vocal critic of student testing practices and results. He found fault with the Common Core and No Child Left Behind initiatives. He once noted that the test score level of ‘proficient’ may sound good enough to most parents, but it’s deceptive. “In Vermont, such a score means the student passed only 40 percent of the test,” he said. Callahan especially enjoyed meeting his many students when, later as adults, he delighted in their stories of personal achievement. “I have and I guess I always will believe that a highly trained teacher is a child’s best friend,” he said. Callahan’s surviving wife, Karlene, along with her children and grandchildren, held a celebration-of-life gathering at Mr. Ups Restaurant, in Middlebury, on Aug. 12. ■

Wool, fiber guild celebrates 40 years By Lou Varricchio EDITOR
BRISTOL | Last week the Twist O’ Wool Fiber Guild celebrated 40 years as a guild. The week also marked 40 years of guild members demonstrating the art of the craft at the Addison County Fair & Field Days. According to Christine Homer, “the guild was organized by Eleanor Boutcher of Shoreham, Ellen Leone of Bristol, and Shelagh Smith of Monkton in May 1979. They created a mailing list of about 50 people, put advertisements in the papers, and posters were put up to inform folks about the initial meeting. About 30 people showed up at the Ilsley Library in Middlebury and they filled out questionnaires about what they hoped would be accomplished with the guild.” This year’s edition of Field Days ended last week, and guild members welcomed visitors at the big tent near the handmowing field area. Curious fair goers wandered in and out of the guild tent, many inquiring about what’s involved in the craft. At Field Days, members were spinning, knitting, weaving, carding fiber and working on other demonstrations.
Three retail burglaries under investigation
FERRSIBURGH | On July 26, the Vermont State Police received information regarding three burglaries at three stores on U.S. Route 7 in the towns of Ferrisburgh and New Haven. Entry was gained into the buildings and two cash boxes were stolen. Anyone with information regarding this burglary is urged to contact VSP Trooper Josh Gurwicz at VSPNew Haven Barracks at 802-388-4919. Submit an anonymous tip at vtips.info. ■
Lake Dunmore Road crash
SALISBURY | On Aug. 3, Vermont State Police troopers received a report of a single vehicle crash on Lake Dunmore Road. Troopers responded to the scene with the assistance of Salisbury and Middlebury fire and rescue squads. Upon the arrival of first responders, it was learned the vehicle struck a tree and the sole occupant suffered serious injuries. The operator was identified as Marcus Mamourian, 23, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mamourian was transported to the Porter Hospital emergency room due to his injuries. Preliminary investigation indicates speed was a factor in this

Brandon woman cited
MIDDLEBURY | On Aug. 1, a trooper with the Vermont State Police conducted a motor vehicle stop on U.S. Route 7 for a vehicle not being properly inspected. The operator was identified as´ Cheryl Barrows of Brandon, who is known to troopers from prior law enforcement contact. Barrows was also found to be in violation of court-ordered conditions. Subsequently, Barrows was taken into custody and transported to the VSP New Haven Barracks for processing. Barrows was released on a citation to appear before the Addison County Superior Court Criminal Division to answer the aforementioned charges. ■
Shoplifting in New Haven
NEW HAVEN | On July 29, Vermont State Police troopers received a report of shoplifting at Maplefields in the town of New Haven. Investigation revealed Jessie Flemings, 36, of Vergennes stole a can of beer from the store. On Aug.7, Flemings was issued a citation to appear at Addison County Superior
who has enjoyed working a loom for many years. “The focus in 1979 and today is to educate themselves and others about wool, sheep, spinning, weaving and other fiber skills,” according to Homer. “Every August since 1979, the guild has continued to demonstrate and educate visitors to their tent at the fair. Over the past 40 years, they have maintained proficiency in their skills and added to their initial focus on wool to many other natural fibers.” At this year’s Field Days,guild members proudly displayed their 2019 Guild Afghan, “made from natural colored hand-spun wool yarn, hand-knitted into blocks and crocheted together.” The afghan was raffled off to a winning ticket holder. Money raised by the raffle will be applied to various guild programs and workshops as well as for books and hardware. Homer reported that a display of this year’s “Challenge,” in which members challenged themselves to learn a new technique or make something they had never attempted before, was shown at Field Days. The guild meets the first Thursday of every month at 7 pm at the American Legion, Boardman St. in Middlebury. Members start their “new year” in September, with meetings running through June. “New members are welcome,” Homer said. The first meeting for the season will be held on Sept. 5. ■

drugs played a factor in the collision. ■
SHOREHAM | On Aug. 4, Vermont State Police troopers received a report of a two vehicle crash on Route 22A in the town of Shoreham. Troopers responded to the scene with the assistance of the Shoreham Fire Department and Middlebury Rescue Squad. Preliminary investigation revealed a Chevrolet Silverado was travelling southbound on Route 22A towing a trailer. Operator Ian Swanson lost control of the vehicle, travelled partially onto the shoulder of the southbound lane, attempted to make a correction and in doing so, overcorrected. Swanson’s truck crossed the dividing center line into the oncoming northbound lane of travel. A Lincoln Town Car, driven by Shain Parker, was traveling north bound. Parker observed Swanson’s truck in his lane and attempted to avoid the collision by travelling into the southbound lane. The vehicles collided in the southbound lane. Swanson and a passenger sustained minor injuries and were treated on scene. Parker was the sole occupant of the Lincoln and was transported to UVM-Porter Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. Neither alcohol nor
CORNWAll | On July 20, Vermont State Policetroopers responded to a report of an intoxicated male lying on the ground on Delong Road in the Town of Cornwall. Troopers identified the male as Joseph Larocque, 67. While speaking with Larocque, Troopers detected several signs of impairment.

Letter to the Editor VTrans
To the editor: I am w r it ing to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the “slice of life” column written by Tom P insonneault on July 20. I was so surprised to see my father’s name in print dating back to 1965 when Tom was hired by Ivor Pelsue who was then the road com mi s s ione r for the Vermont Highway Department... Thanks very much. — Jan Smith, Sudbury ■
29, of New Haven, was traveling south on Monkton Road at an estimated 45-50 mph in a posted 35 mph zone. While turning, Nottingham saw a deer step into the roadway. Nottingham quickly applied the brakes while travelling at a speed which was too fast for the hazards then existing, being the curve in the road and the deer. As a result, Nottingham fell off the motorcycle and left the roadway. A family member brought Nottingham to Porter Medical Center to treat his road burns. ■
Ferrisburgh man impaired

Message in the stars: a remembrance
Have you ever experienced bumping into an old friend or acquaintance while traveling abroad? Ever wonder By Tom Pinsonneault how or why this hap• GUEST COLUMNIST • pened? I’ll bet you can list several examples of such events. “There are no coincidences,” as my sister-in-law reminds me. “Things don’t happen by accident.” If this is true, how are these phenomenon explained? I remember when, in February 2010, I found myself in Palm Springs, California, with my wife, Sharon and our son Josh and his wife, Lisa. We were on a mission that day looking for a statue of actress Lucille Ball that Sharon, a lifelong fan of television’s“ “I Love Lucy Show”, knew was somewhere in the downtown area. Leaving the parking garage, I observed stars scattered about on the sidewalk. The stars were flat, polished pieces of stone fairly blending in with the sidewalk. I had no idea that I was about to traverse the famous Sidewalk of the Stars. We proceeded on a northwesterly direction and I began to loose interest. But I continued the search for the statue of Lucy with the others. Experiencing no luck, we crossed to the other side of the street and headed southeast. With the three of them ahead of me I thought
this would be an opportune moment to take a candid photo. I stopped and framed them along with the hustle and bustle of pedestrians and the various shops and stores in the vicinity and with one click and I added another picture to the Palm Springs travel album. I have a camera case that attaches to my belt and as I began stowing the camera away my vision caught the tip of a sidewalk star at my feet. I move backward a couple inches for a better view and discovered, to my astonishment, that I was standing on the sidewalk star for Murray Korda. The star read: “Murray Korda, violin virtuoso.” I just stood and stared dumbfounded at the find, trying to take in the significance. Murray, a world famous musician (of the talented, world-famous Korda clan), was an old friend of mine who came to live in Orwell (where I reside) with his family in 1979. Joan, Murray’s wife, was the catalyst to make the move from Los Angeles to Orwell. She reminded Murray, in 1978, while suffering through another L.A. Christmas with an outside temperature of 108 degrees and a smog alert preventing the kids from outside play: ”Christmas isn’t Christmas without snow and cold.” It was then that they decided to purchase Brookside, a 19th-century estate on Route22A. Once settled in Vermont, it didn’t take long
for the Kordas to become active in the communities of Middlebury and Orwell. They became Friends of the Art Museum at Middlebury College, actively supported Sheldon Museum, and shared their talents at Middlebury schools. They also supported the Orwell Village School and local community functions. Murray joined Independence Lodge No. 10 in Orwell where he assumed the role of historian. Sharon accompanied him in several holiday performances; my son Nathan and Murray’s youngest son, Tony, were great friends. Joan described Murray as a man of “tails and jeans” as his professional life continually demanded his presence in L.A. Sadly, Murray’s life was ended untimely and tragically on the road in Shoreham on Sept. 30, 1998. While I stood there gazing at Murray’s Palm Springs “star” all kinds of memories flooded through my mind. I called to the others and when I drew their attention to the star they stood in surprise, too. I hadn’t realized the commotion I caused until an on-looking shopkeeper chimed in about Murray’s star gracing the sidewalk at the entrance to his shop. Remembrances of Murray began to flow. When we returned to Orwell, I shared this story of the “stars” with Joan, who owns and operates an antique shop in Bridport. I

described to her how students in my literature class were having difficulty understanding the concept of a “bittersweet memoir”. Then, when I related this story about the sidewalk “star” they had a better understanding of the concept. Without missing a beat, Joan observed,“It was Murray, reaching out to you.” You know what? It’s true. Far from home, in an unfamiliar place, a chance encounter with an old friend; it’s bound to bring a smile to your face. Thanks, Murray. The 21st anniversary of Murray Korda’s passing is approaching and memories of Murray’s life and influence in Middlebury and Orwell continue to bring a smile to our face. ■ Note: Murray Korda is remembered on Facebook at: facebook.com/MurrayKorda/.

IGroup opposes SNAP changes
MONTPELIER | Vermont’s Department for Children and Families is opposing the federal government’s proposed rule changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In Vermont this program is called 3SquaresVT. “We expect approximately 5,204 households will lose their 3SquaresVT benefits,” said Ken Schatz, commissioner of Vermont’s Department for Children and Families. This is 13 percent of the current caseload and equates to an approximate loss of $7.5 million in annual benefits for Vermonters. ■
IRokeby hosts pie & ice cream feast
FERRISBURGH | Having a great day is as easy as pie at Rokeby Museum’s annual Pie & Ice Cream Social. Come hungry, and plan to enjoy music and games on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 1 to 4 p.m. Rokeby Museum’s corps of pie-baking volunteers has been perfecting the art of pie making for 35 years. Peach, apple, berry pies of every kind – and in every combination possible – await visitors who love the taste of summer. All proceeds support the museum’s preservation and education programs. In addition to pies, the Meatpackers will be playing popular bluegrass tunes, while youthful fiddlers, members of the Fiddleheads, will strike up during bluegrass breaks. Visitors wearing 1950s era aprons or festive summer hats will be entered into prize drawings, while lawn games including croquet, badminton and horseshoes will be set up for all to enjoy. A scavenger hunt for young children takes them on a lively investigation of the museum’s farm buildings. This year is the museum’s 35th year hosting the social. “Over the years thousands of dollars have been raised,” said museum board chair and Ferrisburgh resident Marty Dewees. “We have long-time museum member Donna Frazer-Leary to thank for being the force behind this annual event. And after baking hundreds of pies and serving countless slices and scoops, honoring Donna will be part of the day’s festivities.” ■
