Colorful ‘heARTS’ pop up around Rutland County heARTS of Rutland! street art project

By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — The heARTs of Rutland! community street art project was officially unveiled last weekend. Onlookers and supporters of the project appeared on downtown streets June 9 to learn more about the art effort and to see the large, colorful fiberglass hearts on display at 30 locations around Rutland County. The heARTs of Rutland! street art project celebrates local people and pride in the region’s heritage and potential. The purpose of the project is to encourage people, businesses and community to come together showing “heart” in a variety of ways. Local artists finished painting 30 hearts, including: Karen Seward, Libby Moore, Mary Fran Lloyd, Castleton State College art students Kristen Partesi and Nicole Ruman, Molly Hornbeck, Jessica Perkins and Bonnie Kelly. Also contributing creative time on the hearts were Intermediate School Art Club See heARTS, page 6

Construction loses 500 jobs in Vt; jobs report is anemic By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — On June 15, the Vermont Department of Labor announced that the seasonally adjusted statewide unemployment rate for May 2012 was 4.6 percent.

The state data for May show no change from the April statewide unemployment rate. “The state job news is anemic at best,” according to jobs expert Phil Sternman of Jobs Plus Associates in St. Johnsbury. “It reflects Montpelier ’s inability to produce an aggres-

sive jobs stimulation policy that is welcoming to business. With the state still being perceived as unfriendly to business, who would really want to relocate their manufacturing plant here?” National unemployment is on the rise, now at 8.2 percent, while Ver-

mont unemployment remains flat. While Vermont may boast the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the USA, the figures are nothing to brag about. The flat percentage number means only a few new jobs have been See JOBS, page 8

The fresh produce will also find a place on the shelves of several local food pantries. In addition to the current crops, blueberries, grapes, elderberries and other fruits will be added in coming years, according to Ackerman-Leist. “The entire installation was completed by students taking a semester-long edible landscaping course in a culminating week of construction and planting,� he

The kitchen serves as a resource for local farmers and small value-added processors to process fresh food efficiently and get their products to the marketplace, Ackerman-Leist said.




POULTNEY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Since the 1990s, Green Mountain College in Poultney has established a coast-to-coast reputation as an educational powerhouse in sustainable living and food practices, as well as in new agriculturalrelated education programs. A recently completed ediblefoods gardening project reinforces the institutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green reputation and academic commitment to a sustainable tomorrow. The collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Lawnto-Edible Garden Project makes good use of the front elevation of the campus Solar Harvest Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a farmhouse acquired by the small liberal-arts college in 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for hands-on educational purposes. Lawn-to-Garden transforms the center â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front elevation into a permaculture landscape of vegetables and perennial fruits. With some outside financial help in the form of grants, the college faculty and students planted lettuce, peppers, onions, tomatoes and other organic vegetables in 12 new raised beds. Raised bed gardening is easy to weed and maintain. In organic gardening practices, it is also an aid in reducing pests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edible gardens can be visually appealing, a lot more interesting than grass,â&#x20AC;? said Philip Ackerman-Leist, director of the college's Farm and Food Project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putting the garden out front also makes a statement about the centrality of food in the community.

From the Editor

Witches, warlocks and wizards


hat a difference four years makes. With our national economy mired in the doldrums, homeowners still stuck with devalued property, and a White House reelection campaign that can’t get much traction (at least with Republicans and more than a few independents) by blaming it all on the previous occupant, I was surprised to read an online news report which indicates that the AFL-CIO is less than excited about fullblown support of President Obama during the 2012 campaign. In 2008, the AFL-CIO vote was solidly in the Obama camp, thus, even a little hesitation by certain union leaders in 2012 gets my attention. Democrats, especially presidential candidates, have come to enjoy the solid, unquestioning support of the rank-and-file. Union members are often called upon to help get out the vote through their many community and labor networks. In 2008, sources estimated that unions supported the president’s successful “Hope and Change” campaign to the tune of $400 million. Let’s not forget that those big bucks helped elect and reelect Democrats from the national to the local level. But here in 2012, it’s not exactly clear if the AFL-CIO can be as solidly relied upon by the President’s campaign team. If one report noted last week is any indication, something is going on and causing a shift. Last week, an AFL-CIO official told the U.S. News and World Report’s online Washington Whispers blog—when asked about the organization making a specific dollar commitment to the p7resident’s reelection bid—that it will “redeploy funds”. The comment indicates that the nation’s largest federation of unions may be growing a tad disillusioned with the president. “The shift has been in the works for months, and has nothing to do with the president's failure to show in Wisconsin, where labor unions led a failed recall election of Gov. Scott Walker,” according to Whispers. “We wanted to start investing our funds

in our own infrastructure and advocacy,” AFL-CIO spokesman Josh Goldstein told U.S. News and World Report’s Washington Whisper. “There will be less contributions to candidates, including President Obama.” According to Goldstein, quoted again in the same report, “this is not a slight at the president.” Really? It appears that the once well-concealed rift beween the AFL-CIO and the White House may be emerging as the campaign progesses into high gear. The rift, if you can call it that, predates the Wisconsin recall election. A disagreement seems to be linked to the public health insurance option and the Bush tax cuts (President Obama approved a two-year-extension of the Bush tax cuts in December 2010), issues of concern with the union leadership. It’s all rather unclear to me, but I gather that the AFL-CIO is now short $20 million after funneling a bundle to support the failed Democrat candidate during the recent Wisconsin gubernatorial recall election campaign. Then along comes the Rasmussen Reports with a very curious survey posted last week: GOP candidate Mitt Romney leads the president for the first time in Wisconsin—who would have thought this could be possible even a few weeks ago? The president's support in Wisconsin has dropped like the proverbial rock. Rasmussen found that a statewide telephone survey of likely voters shows Romney with 47 percent of the vote to Obama’s 44 percent. Five percent prefer some other candidate, and four percent are undecided. Is the President really in trouble? True, there are political shifts afoot in the land, but practicing the ancient art of tasseomancy this early in an election year is best left to the pros who know it best— witches, warlocks and wizards. The voters will have their say this November. Lou Varricchio

I’m over it already


ithout trying, my eyes and ears have caught wind of what will at the least be a second tier presidential campaign topic: Which candidate is more like us? Or as I’ll put it: Which candidate would be more likely to put up with spending time with us common folk without votes, ultimately many more millions of dollars of personal income, and years of power being at stake? June 12 a CNN headline story, accompanied by a headshot of each the candidates, asked, “Could you see them at your cookout?” No. I don’t see either guy at a cookout of mine. And that’s fine, that’s a point for each of them. Obama, the elite professor rich guy, and Romney, the car elevator even-richer guy, are the type of guys I want as president. Guys who’d rather wow a hall full of business titans and Hollywood stars, then be like me and spend an hour looking on for a sale priced cigar I can puff after dinner while I walk my property and pull poplar-lings from my fern fields. Come on with this whole “are the candidates out of touch with most Americans?” nonsense. I’m over it. Of course they are. It’s not even close man, and that’s just the type of guy we need as president, the type of guy who has spent countless years working hard as heck for the chance to walk up them painted red airplane steps and into a plane whose phone is a direct line to the “on” switch that could blow up half the planet. For that guy you don’t need me or anyone like me, the common guy, who isn’t sure if including the cap on the plastic bottle is proper recycling protocol. Elite, rich, ultra successful, non slurpy

drinkin’, not coming over to my house for the tree trimming party kind of guy or gal, is who we need in the White House. So save us the faux common dude antics along the campaign please will you Barack and Mitt’s “people.” We’ve seen it all before, and even though we’re common, we ain’t buying it. And by the way, any of you who disagree with me and feel our President should be “like us,” I hope you’re not ones who also happen to be G.W. Bush haters, cause your least favorite guy routinely topped polls asking which candidate you’d like to have a beer with. Remember him? His everyday good ole quick reflex, shoe-ducking demeanor was what you hated for eight years. So, don’t tell me you want Barack and Mitt to be regular like G.W. Bush. You’re all going to vote for whom you like, whether he can play “regular guy” in front of the camera lens or not. Hear that campaign strategists, and spare your candidate a few hundred hot-dog photo-op bites along the way. Being president has got nothing to do with relating to the regular, cause if it did, we’d all be screaming, “Bring back G.W. Bush.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

SCOTUS decision fallout may get ugly To the editor: A leading leftist political group, Health Care for America Now, is mapping out a full bore media campaign to either celebrate or denounce the coming U.S. Supreme Court decision in the ObamaCare case, expected sometime in June. In the event – more likely than not, in my opinion - that the Court gives ObamaCare a serious hit, this campaign will ignore the constitutional basis of the decision and instead attack justices, Republicans, Tea Parties, free market think tanks, insurance companies (who supported ObamaCare), and a long list of villains who are not supportive of government run health care. In some states... this could get ugly. John McClaughry Monpelier

News of the Week

Trooper pursues speeding Ludlow man By Lou Varricchio SPRINGFIELD — On June 14, at approximately 5:58 p.m., Vermont State Police Trooper Jonathan Graham observed a 1998 Subaru station wagon traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed along Route 11 in Chester. According to Graham’s report, a radar unit measured the vehicle’s speed at 85 mph in a 50 mph zone. The trooper attempted to catch up to the speeding vehicle as it entered Springfield. The vehicle was observed passing other vehicles on the right by using the shoulder of the road. As the trooper entered a 40 mph zone, he observed the vehicle had overturned. The operator, Aaron Fitzgerald, 21, of Ludlow, was taken into custody. Fitzgerald was transported to the Springfield Hospital by a Springfield Fire Department team for evaluation of minor injuries. The car was a total wreck. Fitzgerald was issued three traffic tickets. A ticket for speeding, operating a motor vehicle while his license was suspended and for passing vehicles illegally on the right. Fitzgerald was issued a criminal citation to appear in Windsor County Court for grossly negligent operation of a motor vehicle. The VSP trooper was assisted by a Springfield Police officer.

Police taser rooftop man By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — Rutland-area police tasered a disturbed man after a long standoff on a rooftop at 75 School Street in Rutland June 14. Police wore bullet-proof armour as protection, although the man was later found to be unarmed. Police have not released the man’s name at press time. His only threats were to himself, several eyewitnesses said. According to Rutland Police Sgt. Matt Prouty, charges will not be filed.

Campaign '12: Vermont topheavy with incumbents By Meghan Tisinger

MONTPELIER — As Vermont's state legislative election filling deadline looms on June 14, election experts are hoping for a more competitive race than in previous years. Vermont, similar to many other states, has seen a lack of contested races, allowing mostly Democrat incumbents to sail through the primary and general election, often times without Republican or other opponents. “In every community across this country, voters are given the opportunity to exercise their right to vote. However, when no one steps up to run for these state legislative seats, the same person is able to fill these positions,” said Tyler King, editor of Ballotpedia's State Legislative Competitiveness Index. Ballotpedia, an online almanac about state politics, has once again launched their state legislative competitive index, which analyzes which states have the most competitive and least competitive electoral environments in 2012. The index looks at three factors: is the incumbent running for reelection in a district; if so, does he or she draw a primary challenge; and are there two major party candidates in the general election. The comprehensive 2012 state legislative competitive index will be released following the completion of the primaries in all 43 states with 2012 state legislative elections. It will examine all 5,984 state legislative seats that are up for election on Nov. 6. In addition, Vermont's 2012 report will be released following the close of the filing deadline and the initial release of a candidate list. In 2010, Vermont ranked 35th in the country for most competitive elections according to the state's electoral competitiveness metric. For open seats, 22 (12.2 percent) of the 180 incumbents did not run for re-election in Vermont. Additionally, 68 (37.8 percent) did not face another major party candidate in the general election. Nationally, incumbents ran for reelection in 4,985 of the 6,125 (81.4 percent) seats up for the 2010 election. Vermont was also ranked 40th in the nation in 2010 for incumbents who faced a primary challenge with 147 (93 percent) of incumbents who ran for reelection not facing a primary challenger. Nationally, 3,852 of the 4,985 (77.3 percent) incumbents faced no challenger in the primary.

The Castleton Community Center spring garden renovation project has been the fortunate recipient of generous volunteer support.

Volunteers join hands to spruce up Castleton Community Center By Lou Varricchio CASTLETON — The Castleton Community Center spring garden renovation project has been the fortunate recipient of generous volunteer support. Phase one consisted of the Castleton Lions Club installation of a new 40-by-40 foot vinyl fence in May. Phase two was completed in June by a group of 15 Home Depot team volunteers from the Rutland store; the team

cleared the garden, removed old raised bed frames and installed new frames. The team laid ground cloth, mulched the paths between the beds and donated an assortment of vegetable plants to fill the beds. The garden, which is part of the UVM Master Gardeners program, is a real asset to the center. It provides a valuable learning experience for children during SCAMP camp and provides fresh garden vegetables for the senior meals program.

Rutland's Chaffee Center seeks new members RUTLAND — The Chaffee Art Center invites artists residing in Vermont and within 50 miles of its borders to submit applications for juried membership. The Chaffee is a non-profit membership supported community arts center

SPIFFY SIGN — Fifth- and sixth-graders at the Neshobe Elementary School headed up a school beautification project this year with help from teacher Katherine Tricarico. Students recognized the school needed a new sign. The children worked under the guidance of Winning Image Graphics to design and build it. The Brandon Zoning Commission helped the children place the sign and obtain a permit. Last week, students presented the project to the PTO, which funded the project. The sign was unveiled June 7 at the school's Celebration of Student Learning event. Photo by Marilyn Varricchio

Green Mountain Outlook - 7

18 graduates in Kurn Hattin Class of ‘12 By Lou Varricchio WESTMINSTER — There were 18 reasons to celebrate graduation day at Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster June 9. And each one of the 18 reasons had a name and a unique story to tell. Founded in 1894, the year-round year-round, residential home and school serving at-risk children, ages 6-15, from throughout the northeastern U.S., has turned around the lives of many of its alumni. On June 9, 18 graduates wore the school’s traditional red graduation garb and proudly shook the hands of Executive Director Christopher Barry and Rev. Father Lance W. Harlow. Harlow also gave the invocation and the benediction. Several students received one or more prizes from the nine categories of awards which included: academic, cottage, sports, the Massachusetts board of directors, alumni, music, scholarship and awards for showing the greatest improvement, good citizenship and the greatest aptitude in the field of agriculture and the executive director's award, in memory of John P. Barry, educator and administrator were also given. Valedictorian Scarlett Stanhope spoke, and diplomas were awarded by David J. Maysilles, class of ’43. Maysilles is also the president of the school’s board of trustees, Class of 2012 included Timothy Shawn Allain, Jr., Chelsea Faith Candello, Breanna Lynn Collins, Mia Nora-Esha Dawson, Jennifer Lindsay Filiault, John Daniel Harris, John Nathaniel Ireland, Sebastien Jean-Francois, Nichole Ann Kelly, Danielle Lynn LaBrecque, Austin Reed Ladd, Tanessa LaFoe, Kayla Mae Loiacono, Taylor-Lynn Marie Maynard,

Jailene Isabel Ramos, Scarlett Anne Stanhope, Garrett Warren Waterman and Ronald Whitcomb, Jr. “We are so proud of them,”said Kim Fine, senior development officer at the school. “After graduating, many of the students will stay on campus for the summer in the ninth-

grade transition program. Then they will rejoin their families and attend their local high schools in the fall. Others will go to the Milton Hershey School in Pennsylvania, and Rock Point School in Burlington, Vermont. Wherever they go, Kurn Hattin will always be their home.”

Shand from page 1 According to Wendy Regier, vice chairwoman of the Cavendish Democratic Committee, Shand was noted for taking the lead on House legislation which helped bring new telecommunications services to the district. “He guided legislation that enabled many more Vermonters to have access to broadband and cell service in rural areas,” Regier said. “He also worked to provide affordable health care to Vermonters. In addition, consumer protection was very high on Rep. Shand’s agenda.” Shand was suprised by the accolades. “Thank you for your many kindnesses and support while I was in Montpelier,” he said. “A lot of my time has been spent working with the Vermont Attorney General’s Office on consumer protection issues such as credit card fraud, unscrupulous Internet lending and electronic security breaches,” Shand said.


During the last legislative session, Reier told guests, Shand was a key proponent of a bill which provided Vermont National Guard members with a housing allowance whenever they are deployed for more than a month. The housing issue came to the forefront in 2011 following Tropical Storm Irene when some troops were called up to assist in the flood cleanup effort. Voters at the party agreed that Shand was a good listener. “He listened to all constituent’s points of view, as well as the timely way of responding to their questions and concerns,” said one unidentified party attendee. Shand was congratulated in person by Windsor County State Senators John Campbell, Dick McCormick and Alice Nitka. “Ernie studied materials and prepared for legislation,” Campbell said. “Often the committee wanted to hear his point of view before acting on a bill.” Fellow Democrat Mark Huntley, who will run for the Cavendish/Weathersfield House seat vacated by Shand, attended the retirement party. He is a Rutland native and a financial advisor and musician.

LUDLOW — Bob Carboneau of Springfield likes the game of golf. In fact, he loves the game. After playing the for several years, Carboneau said the rewards are many, not the least of which is the ever so rare hole-in-one event. Carboneau’s persistence on the grass paid off recently when he made a holein-one at Okemo Valley Golf Club.

Jobs from page 1 created in Vermont although the labor commissioner has tried to put a more positive spin on the data. “The May jobs numbers confirmed the volatility seen in April’s data which was related to seasonal fluctuations,” according to Department of Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan, in a news report. According to Noonan, the seasonally adjusted Vermont data show the Vermont total labor force decreased by 800. May posted the third straight month of declines to the state’s total labor force. Remaining upbeat, Noonan confirmed that the seasonally adjusted data for May reports an increase of 3,300 jobs more than the April data. “Manufacturing reported a few job gains as well, but the state continues to lag in the construction sector, which did not keep up with past hiring trends, with 500 jobs lost since April,” Sternman noted.
