Water monitored for health, safety RUTLAND — Eight months after Irene, state environmental and health officials are monitoring Vermont’s lakes and streams for any lingering health or safety hazards in recreational waters. Due to the magnitude of flooding experienced in many areas of the state, it’s likely that any biological or chemical contaminants that may have been washed in by floodwaters have since been diluted by the sheer volume of those waters. Test results of water samples taken after Irene, as well as more recent samples from early this month, generally show bacteria to be below levels of concern. Sampling at many of the state’s rivers and lakes will continue throughout the summer swimming season. Swimmers may notice that certain lakes remain discolored by sediment even into the summer, but this is not a health hazard. There have been no reports of persistent chemical contamination following either the 2011 spring floods or flooding from Irene. Any suspected chemical contamination can be reported 24/7 to the Vermont Spill Team at 802-241-3888 or 800-641-5005. The appearance of an oily sheen or discolored sediment could be an indication of chemical contamination.

Hemp advocates celebrate State House ruling From Staff & News Reports MIDDLEBURY — In light of the passage of legislation favoring hemp farming, Rural Vermont officials said H.747 authorizes the Vermont Agency of Agriculture to begin the process of allowing Vermont farmers the economic opportunity to cultivate hemp. The legislation is still dependant on the removal of federal prohibitions for Vermont farmers to cultivate industrial hemp as a cash crop. From June 4 to June 11, Rural Vermont will host Hemp History Month, a presentation on the economic potential of industrial hemp with Netaka White on Wednesday, June 6, at 7 p.m. The talk and discussion will be held at the Addison County Regional Planning Commission office on Seminary Street in Middlebury. The discussion will highlight the uses of industrial hemp and how the crop can fit into Vermont’s agricultural landscape and econo-

my. A review of current state and federal hemp policy will also be discussed. White is the bioenergy program director at the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund and heads up the Vermont Bioenergy Initiative. Rural Vermont has been advocating with Vermont farmers to allow for the cultivation of industrial hemp. “Rural Vermont’s hemp campaign has been energized by grassroots activists from Brattleboro to Warren who want the ability to cultivate hemp just as our Canadian neighbors are allowed to,” said Robb Kidd, Rural Vermont organizer. In 2008, Rural Vermont was the lead advocate in promoting the Vermont Industrial Hemp Bill, Act 212. However, Act 212 only allows Vermont farmers to grow industrial hemp once federal regulations permit it. In 2009 Rural Vermont urged passage of a joint resolution directing the federal government and the federal delegation to legalize the growing of industrial hemp.

Some outdoor wood boilers in Vt. must be retired by Dec. 31 MIDDLEBURY – Many older outdoor wood-fired boilers (OWBs) that are not certified to meet Vermont’s emissions standards are required by law to be permanently retired by the end of 2012. Specifically, uncertified OWBs that are located within 200 feet of a residence, school or healthcare facility, not served by the OWB, must be removed and destroyed by Dec. 31. To assist Vermonter ’s with complying

with the new law, the Vermont Air Pollution Control Division is offering a voluntary OWB Change-out Program that provides financial incentives to encourage the replacement of old OWBs with cleaner, more efficient heating units. Smoke emitted from traditional OWBs has been linked with severe localized pollution and adverse health effects. New certified OWBs sold for use in Vermont today emit 70-90 percent less pollu-

It could have been lots worse The 2011-2012 legislature has given up and gone home, and pretty much on schedule to boot. A major source of contention, traditionally, is the General Fund appropriation bill for the coming fiscal year (FY2013). To the lawmakers’ credit, the spending issues were resolved rather easily, and several non-germane policy riders were rebuffed. The General Fund budget is balanced and the budget stabilization reserves are filled to 100 percent of their statutory requirements. General Fund spending is slated to increase by 5.4 percent over this year ’s amount. The FY2014 budget deficit is estimated at $5-44 million. At the end of FY2013, the legislature prescribed that half of any General Fund surplus will be restored to the Education Fund to reduce the $27.5 million snatch Gov. Shumlin engineered a year ago. If this happens – not highly likely property taxpayers would be relieved of having to pay for at least part of the Shumlin sleight of hand. An election year gimmick proposed by Sen. Jane Kitchel (D-Caledonia) – to rebate any possible surplus to residential school property taxpayers only – fell by the wayside. Despite repeated efforts by Progressive legislators, the legislature declined to increase higher bracket income tax rates to cope with “growing inequality”. The administratively-created use tax on “cloud computing” products was happily stalled at least for a year, to the relief of businesses like that were considering relocating to more friendly climes rather than absorb the unexpected tax hit. In a post-adjournment news conference, House Speaker

tion, and cleaner air means fewer cases of asthma and other health problems caused by wood smoke. In addition, uncertified OWBs are traditionally one of the least-efficient of all heating systems. However, newer, certified OWBs are much more efficient. “Having an older-model outdoor wood boiler is only about 30% efficient compared to 70% efficiency for new-model OWBs,” said Phil Etter of the Vermont APCD.

Shap Smith promised to push next year to expand the sales and use tax to include services. That, he said, would allow a rate below the present 6 percent on the broader tax base. He didn’t say how long it would take for revenue-hungry legislators to push the rate back up to 6 percent. Strong majorities in both chambers expressed outrage at the Shumlin administration’s deal with Gaz Metro to merge Gazowned Green Mountain Power with CVPS. That deal allows CVPS to disregard the required refunding of $21 million to ratepayers who were forced to underwrite a 2001 bailout. Instead, the governor wants to let CVPS hand over the $21 million to such favorite Shumlin causes as the Clean Energy Development Fund. Heavy pressure from the governor ’s office persuaded House Democrats to back off from even a resolution of disapproval, and refuse to accept a 273 Senate-passed provision to change the applicable law to require the refund. The Shumlin version of a Health Benefits Exchange, prohibiting small businesses from buying insurance plans outside the Exchange, won passage on party line votes. The Exchange, costing millions of dollars to set up, will disappear in 2017 when the governor expects that the Green Mountain Care single payer plan will terminate health insurance altogether. A public school choice bill will allow small numbers of high schoolers to transfer to other public high schools that will have them. Curiously, the sending school won’t lose any

Most OWBs sold in Vermont before March 31, 2008 create significant amounts of smoke, which often results in complaints from neighbors. The APCD, through their voluntary Outdoor Wood Boiler Change-Out Program, is offering financial incentives to encourage people to replace their old, uncertified OWBs with these updated systems or with other more efficient heating units.

of its budgeted funds, and will continue to count the departed student as attending for property tax computation purposes. The receiving school will get nothing for taking on the additional student. Independent schools were dropped from the bill when they refused to accede to government tuition controls. It’s hard to see how this will be much of a step forward. Among the good news was the last minute death of the PSB-designed Renewable Portfolio Standard, by which the government would force electric ratepayers to pay $311435 million to subsidize the renewable industrial complex over the next 30 years. Also good news was the failure of the heavy-handed American Federation of Teachers effort to get the legislature to force unionization of private child care providers. To sum up: the budget is balanced, there were no significant tax rate increases, and several really bad ideas fell by the wayside. Given the complexion of the legislature and the ambitions of the governor, this can be viewed as far from the worst outcome. However the special interest pressure for ever more renewable energy subsidies persists unabated, and Vermont continues to march down the road toward government-run single payer Green Mountain Care, the costs of which the Shumlin administration will keep secret until after the November election.

Vermont Folklife Center plans summer institute digital media in a school setting. Past participants have come from a broad spectrum of roles in the K-16 system, including classroom teachers, special educators, librarians, and administrators. This diversity makes group process a rich opportunity to explore ideas, probe models, and collaboratively visualize site-appropriate applications. Over the course of an action-packed week, Discover-

ing Community participants work with cultural researchers, media specialists, and fellow educators to explore the power of ethnographic field research and techniques for working with digital audio, video, and photography as documentary tools. Using the Middlebury community as a classroom, Discovering Community models simple strategies for deepening students’ relationships to their own

hometowns. The Discovering Community Summer Institute builds on the Vermont Folklife Center ’s many years partnering with educators on community-based projects, the ever expanding array of digital tools with recording capabilities, and the do-it-yourself editing and production opportunity that digital technology affords. Three graduate credits are available Castleton State College

From the Editor

Conscience eaters

Simon says ...


f I were king there’d be a lot of changes around here. A king, without a pesky parliament to bollix up things, would get a lot done; plus he could make a lot more heads roll without a pesky judiciary, too. How draconian, you say? What presumption? What brass gall? And all this from a flatlander, no less. Ah, but therein lies the rub of my experiment in imaginary kingship, and I dare say, yours, too; because, like me, you’re a little king or queen in your own mind, too. Admit it. Deep down – you, me – we all aspire to the starring role of dictator; we want our way. We have all contributed to the NIMBY mentality around here. Everyone is a South American dictator in his or her own mind (although many would be afraid to admit this thought in public). The result is, as we all can see, nothing much gets done to advance us into the modern age. So, here is a little Walter Mitty exercise in fantasy. For a few paragraphs, I am anointing myself King Simon I of th Kingdom of Vermontsylvania. So, this is what “Simon says” regarding highways and byways around the kingdom. Here goes. Old T.V. show transition ripples begin to cross our line of vision. It means we’re either flashing back or dreaming something. Of course, it’s my fantasy. I am wearing a crown and a plush velvet robe. Mmm, you know, I look good in these sartorial splendors. A real natural. Ok, look sharp now. Simon Rex I approaches. “Here ye, here ye. “1. Share the road: Ok, King Simon says, bicyclists may share the road with motor vehicles, but they must pay their share of road taxes for the maintenance of blacktops. Bicycles must be registered and licensed and inspected just like motor carriages. Riders must obey the same rules as drivers which means coming to a full stop at all traffic lights and stop signs; no cutting across pedestrian walkways either. And no hand signals, please. My drivers don’t understand them. Instead, use LED signal lights affixed to your mandatory rear fender. This, Simon says. “2. U.S. Route 7: Simon says condemn long stretches of land between Rutland and Bran-


don and Middlebury and Vergennes. Now add extra lanes in both directions to help speed traffic along. The last time the King looked at a wall calendar, this wasn’t 1912. Many of my subjects are not on trustfunds; they work for a living and the clock dictates their days. Oh, and farmers, get your manure off the roads ASAP. You drop it, you pick it up. That stuff gets noxious on our tires in an enclosed garage. “3. Other ways to work: Simon says Creek Road, along the Otter Creek in Middlebury, shall have a higher berm against annual flooding and be paved. This will help create easy access into Middlebury for my subjects in Salisbury, Sudbury and Leicester, and other points south. It will also take some local traffic off Route 7. And talk to the King about school buses stopping at every driveway for miles another time. “4. Bypasses: Simon says that since the speculative Middlebury Bypass was first proposed back in 1955, it’s now time to build the darn thing (to the east of Route 7). Eminent domain shall rule. Sorry. Folks don’t get to hold this project up for the good of the community for another half century. (Self sacrifice is a good thing, I am told by some of our political, religious and social authorities.) I will rule on Rutland and Brandon bypasses later. “5. Trucks and trains: I am sorry, building a multi-million rail spur in Middlebury for Omya, a private company, that is being paid for, mostly, by taxpayers is a scandal. So, Simon says, live with those big trucks. It keeps many men working from drivers to service technicians. And commuter rail? I admit it’s a nice idea. But then who shall ride and pay for the trains (sorry, the King is tapped out) plus give up the convenience and freedom of their motor carriages? “6. Downtown schools: No town shall be permitted to build large schools and career centers in congested downtown areas that create traffic jams and safety hazards. Middlebury’s Court Street is an example of such bad planning. “Enough now. The King tires and must rest. He seeks the pleasure of amusements and mutton, but will return someday to brainstorm new ways to make his kingdom a better, more 21st-century place to live.” Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Lou Varricchio


int Tic-Tac colored lima beans, walnut halves, Caesar salad, leafy greens, beets, sunflower seeds, hunks of seasonal fruit, berries, non-seasonal fruit, dinky tomatoes halved and touched with herbs, mushroom, cottage and feta cheese, slaws, red onion cut in rings, raisins, craisins, sprouts, grapes, cucumber, red and green pepper, shredded carrot, croutons, olives, chopped apricot, salad dressings galore, and more, neatly, abundantly, respectfully presented. A stray lima bean lost in the walnut section isn’t lost long. Perpetual attention is put to the clean, fresh, self-serve salad station. Load and weigh. Stews for topping yellow or brown rice, baked yam sliced, lasagna, chicken pot pie, polenta or egg plant casserole, macaroni and cheese, kale, chicken wings and other dishes. Chicken wings? Yes, chicken wings, but not your fat uncle’s wings. Load and weigh. Each day four soups offered, with hunks of soft, tan, perfectly crusted bread. Or, have two thin slices bookend fresh turkey and cheddar cheese both sheared thin, a titch of mayo and yellow mustard, sprouts, tomato, for a modest, fresh, sandwich made just so every time, as ordered, served hot, warm, or cool. Or choose one of several daily sandwich specials, served hot, warm, or cool. Sodas, water, freshly brewed tea concoctions. Once the gal pouring my tea came up ¾ cup short. No, “oh, we’re out.” Without a word she gets a ready and waiting full pitcher. Non vegan, and vegan chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal, and snicker-doodle cook-

Babyhead-size muffins with nuts or not, with cranberry, blueberry, peach, and so on. Varieties of oven baked, fresh ingredient topped pizzas. Quiches. Always clean wood top tables based with heavy iron so they don’t teeter, or a Walton’s style family table with benches, or stools to the counter to watch focused, polite, hard working, tenured cooks and counter employees. One or both owner operators always present, working, cooking, serving, clearing, directing, and answering. Watch them deftly re-set a lost lima bean in the walnut section to it’s own. Watch them clear a rumbled newspaper from a just vacated table. Watch them slide behind the serve counter in the nick of time. Lawyers, college teachers and students, artists, tourists, politicians, postmen/women, upper, middle, lower economic range folk, of the ilk who look for a wide variety of fresh, well turned out food, not from large Costco-kinda cans. Nearly two decades in business. No wonder. Stone Soup on College Street in BVT: A 21st Century example of service through work. My favorite place of all time.

Entries were submitted from all across Vermont and these finalists represent the top submissions in each age group. The exhibit finalists will coincide with the Summer Members' Exhibit and the Vermont Pastel Society's Annual Juried Show through July 7. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, June 2 from 4-7 p.m., with music by John Lyons. Doodle 4 Google by Google encourages creativity of young people by asking students to create their own Google doodle. The theme this year was “If I could travel in time, I’d visit–” Doodle 4 Google gives students a blank canvas to harness their curiosity and imagine the past, present, and/or future anywhere in the world. The doodles were judged by a team of Googlers and then guest judges - such as locals Katy Perry, Phineas and Ferb creator and executive producer Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, and recording artist Jordin Sparks - helped choose the top doodles.

Vermont Tech graduates final FairPoint class From News Reports CASTLETON — Vermont Tech celebrated the achievements of the final class to graduate under the Telecommunications Technology Program for FairPoint Communications, a workforce educational partnership between FairPoint Communications and Vermont Tech. The program offered qualified FairPoint employees an opportunity to earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science (A.A.S.) with a concentration in Telecommunications Technology. “Our innovative telecommunication technology curriculum introduces employees to the latest technology in the telecommunications industry and

gives employees the skills and knowledge they need to make an even greater contribution to the highly competitive telecommunications industry of the future,” said Professor Jeff Higgins, director of External Degree Programs. The FairPoint program was initiated by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and FairPoint, in collaboration with selected community colleges within New England and New York. While the Telecommunications Technology Program for FairPoint Communications was eliminated in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the IBEW and FairPoint, Vermont Tech is discussing the continuation of the program for employees

of a consortium of telecommunications technology companies throughout the state.

Green Mountain Outlook - 7

Reverand’s motto: Be careful little eyes where you stare Whenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the fine art of how to dress in public. Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people. What I cannot understand is why young men wear pants too big for them and young women wear pants too small for them. Perhaps we ought to get a little group together and try to reverse this trend. Somebody got the wrong information. I was in the mall the other day and noticed several young men in front of me with trousers several sizes too big and were constantly falling down. One hand was grabbing their trousers while the other hand was hanging onto a cell phone. I wanted to go up and tell them that there is this marvelous new invention called "The Belt" that would solve the problem that they were having. Once they have "The Belt,” they can put it on and forget about their trousers falling down to their ankles. If there is anything I do not want to see it is somebody’s trouser falling down to their ankles. Criticize me if you want to, but I simply cannot not follow these young men walking down the mall. By the time I go the space of three stores, I am a nervous wreck wondering when those trousers are actually going to fall. Young women are no different. It seems to me that most

New citizens welcomed at Neshobe School

BRANDON — May 9 was a special day for 33 men and women at the Neshobe Elementary School in Brandon. On that day, 33 visitors to the USA from 22 nations became American citizens. The individuals took the Oath of Allegiance and become legal U.S> citizens. The 33 candidates for citizenship were presented to the Hon. Colleen A. Brown of the U.S. District Court Vermont District. She administered the Oath of Allegiance to America’s newest citizens. Brown welcomed the new the citizenship candidates and guests while 5th and 6th grade chorus performed patriotic songs and

read the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution. “The citizenship candidates represent the following 20 countries: Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Cuba, Germany, Ghana, India, Ireland, Liberia Malta, Mexico, Pakistan, Czechoslovakia, Sudan, Switzerland, Tanzania, United Kingdom, and Uzbekistan,” according to Anita Rios Moore, Public Affairs Officer for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. “This was a judicial ceremony and was held at the Neshobe School to increase public awareness of the U.S. citizenship process and to enhance the schools curriculum,” she said. In addition to Judge Brown, Susan Sussman, representative, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy's Office, Victoria Jones, representative, U.S. Congressman Peter Welch's Office,

son my eyes were not paying any attention whatsoever. All those years of training seem to have gone out the window. My eyes were in a staring mode and I did not know how to break it. It really is not my fault; I think people should take personal responsibility for their person when they go out in public. They should make sure that everything is prim and proper because you never know what you are going to run into in any given day. For a moment, I had forgotten what I was at the counter for, I tried to shift my eyes into a higher level and it was all I could do to communicate what I needed to communicate at the time. But my eyes, oh, my eyes. They certainly were not helping me in this regard. I might as well come clean and confess. As I walked up to the counter to return my item I could not help but notice that the woman behind the counter was wearing, and you will not believe me, a beard. Yes, I said a beard, whiskers and all. I could not believe it at first. I thought maybe my eyes were trying to get back at me for being so harsh on them the last few months. But no, there in full view of everybody, including my pair of eyes, was a woman with a beard any man would have been proud to wear. All I could think of at the time was what Job said. “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?” My motto: be careful little eyes where you stare. Rev. James L. Snyder

David E. Demag, U.S. Marshal, and Keith Canney, USCIS St. Albans field office acting director, were the officials who presided at the event.

By Rev. James L. Snyder

young women purchase their entire wardrobe when they are in the first grade. At that time, the clothing fits very nicely. By the time these young women hit the 10th grade, those first-grade clothing are not only out of style, but fit no more. Where are their mothers? I know the economy is bad, but really, is it so bad that people cannot afford to upgrade their wardrobe, as they get older and consequently bigger? Shouldn’t there be some sale on mirrors these days? If I were a congressman in Washington D.C., I would work very hard to pass a bill that would make it illegal to walk out of your house on any given morning without first looking into the mirror to see if everything is covered. That is the kind of change I can believe in. As I get older, it gets more difficult to conduct myself as a gentleman because there is so much I do not want to see. Last week I had to return an item to a store and was unprepared for what I was to encounter. I assumed I was well prepared for the day. I went through the normal routine of exercising my eyes to look upward. I try my best when I am out in public to look into the eyes of people, especially those of the gentler sex. This particular day I had really met my match. I stood in line waiting to return my item and I was not thinking too much about the process. I was humming to myself some hymn that was on my mind at the time and was not paying attention to the surroundings. As I say, I trained my eyes to look upward when I am out in public. Eventually, it was my turn to go to the counter and return the item. I walked up and was aghast. I said to myself, "Look at the eyes, look at the eyes, look at the eyes." For some rea-
