SPRINGFIELD — Members for the Springfield Girl Scout Troop 30252, led by Liz Mirra, visited the Springfield Family Center to donate packages last week. The troop, as their Take Action project to obtain their Journey badge spent all year raising money and putting together food packages for the center’s food shelf. By selling Girl Scout Cookies to raise money, the scout troop then purchased items and included recipes on how to make the meals. Fifteen kits were donated to the food shelf and included a chicken and biscuit dinner, macaroni and cheese dinner, spaghetti dinner, and tuna-noodle casserole dinner, among others. The family center also began it Summer Lunch at Home program last week. Children who qualify for free or reduced lunch are eligible to receive meals delivered at home, Monday through Friday during the summer. Anyone interested in signing up that has not done so yet should contact Diana Gould at 885-3646 extension 1009. The center staff members are looking for donations toward the purchase of milk, along with a box of cereal, that are delivered to each family every Friday.

Tourists beware: Vermont is under construction. Gov. Jim Douglas last week signed into law a $595 million transportation bill at the Miller Brook Bridge project in Stowe. The fiscal year 2011 transportation budget contains record spending for Montpelier ’s long-neglected bridge rehabilitation and repair eyesores, as well as record or near record sums for other transportation programs, including rail and paving. “These investments continue the strong commitment we’ve made to our physical infrastructure in recent years,” Douglas said. This transportation budget will generously fund many priorities, such as paving, bridges and rail, and create jobs across the state.” The fiscal year 2011 bridge expenditure of $113.2 million is a record sum, and represents the first time the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s bridge budget has topped $100 million. This represents a $19.3 million increase (21 percent) over the previous high in fiscal year 2010. In addition to all the work that will be done through the bridge appropriation, the transportation bill also funds an additional $5.8 million worth of town-highway structures

grants. These are taxpayer funded grants that will be awarded directly to towns for rehab, repair and replacement of both bridges and culverts. Combined, the grant program and state bridge budget are expected to fund the rehabilitation, reconstruction or maintenance of about 150 bridges statewide. “All of this work will allow us to continue to decrease Vermont’s number of structurally deficient bridges,” said Transportation Secretary David Dill. In 2004, 11.2 percent of Vermont’s Interstate bridges were structurally deficient. Today, just 7 percent are structurally deficient. Similarly, in 2004, 18.5 percent of town highway bridges were structurally deficient, while today just 15.9 percent are structurally deficient. All of the bridge work built into the new budget will allow us to reduce these numbers even more.” Other Transportation Bill highlights include $93.4 million for paving which will help Vermont Agency of Transportation resurface about 300 miles of roadway this construction season, and $51.7 million for railroad improvements, including $5 million for continued AMTRAK rail passenger service on the Vermonter and Ethan Allen lines as well as $26 million to begin track and bridge upgrades to increase train speeds for the Vermonter.

WEDNESDAY June 23, 2010

Blueberry basics Dr. Leonard Perry University of Vermont Blueberries are one of the most popular and healthful fruits, are easy to grow, and can be grown as an ornamental shrub. Many have colorful red fall leaves. If you like eating blueberries from the store or picking your own, consider if you might have the space and conditions for growing them in your landscape. The most important aspects for growing blueberries successfully are choosing hardy varieties and having the right soil. There are five main groups of blueberries, representing three main species. The northern highbush (Vaccinium corymbosum) and lowbush (Vaccinium angustifolium) are the main species for northern gardeners, as well as hybrids of these called “halfhigh”. While the highbush reach from 6 to 15 feet high, depending on climate and cultivar (cultivated variety), the lowbush only reach a foot or so high. The half-high reach from 3 to 5 feet high. These northern groups need sufficient cold to produce flowers, then fruit, so are not suitable for southern gardens. There you’ll see rabbiteye and southern highbush cultivars. There are many cultivars to choose from within each of these groups, varying mainly in time of bloom and fruit size. When choosing blueberry cultivars, you’ll want at least 2 if not 3 different ones for cross pollination unless they are one of the few listed as “self fertile”. Make sure to choose ones from the same group as, for instance, a low bush wont pollinate a highbush type. Make sure too that they are listed to bloom the same time. You’ll find cultivars listed as early, mid, or late season. Although this often refers to ripening of the berries, relative bloom time is similar except for some commercial cultivars. So the bees can move the pollen among your different bushes, plant them near each other or preferably intermixed. Other than getting the right cultivars, you’ll need the right soil for blueberries to succeed. They like plenty of organic matter in the soil, and well-drained soils so roots don’t rot. Perhaps the most important point though is to have acid soils—ones with a low pH of 4.5 to 5.2. You can probably get by with a pH of up to 6.0 if you use plenty of peat moss which is acidic. Sulfur also can be used to lower the pH. If soils are more alkaline (most plants grow best with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0—the latter being neutral), it

may be more work yearly to try and lower the pH than worth it. One solution if the soil pH is too high is to get a shorter cultivar, such as lowbush or half-high, and plant in a container. Just make sure it is large enough, perhaps 15 to 20 gallon size, or 18 to 24 inches wide and 12 to 15 inches deep. You can plant container and all right in the ground. If left above ground, make sure to bring into an unheated shed or garage over winter that wont allow the soil to freeze. Ample ground heat protects roots in the ground during winter, something roots above ground in pots don’t get. Container blueberries also are great for small gardens. When planting in containers, use half peat moss and half potting soil. Once you have the right cultivars, and soil, plant as you would other shrubs. Give enough space—at least 5 to 7 feet apart for the highbush, 3 to 5 feet apart for the half-high, and 2 to 3 feet apart for the lowbush. Add plenty of peat moss or compost, or both, when planting. Blueberry roots are near the surface and sensitive to drying out, so don’t allow them to dry before planting and water well once planted. Keep them well-watered until established, and even later when droughts. Several inches of mulch helps retain moisture, and helps prevent weeds. Handpulling weeds is best so not to damage their shallow roots with a hoe. Since blueberries usually begin bearing fruit when 4 to 5 years old, buying older and larger plants will give you fruit in fewer years. You don’t really need to prune bushes, except to remove broken or rubbing branches, until they are much older. They do need some fertilizer, such as a cup of 5-3-4 or similar for young plants, more for larger mature ones. Apply this in early spring, and perhaps again in late June. Don’t apply much later so plants will harden properly for winter. Also you can use acidic fertilizers as you find for azaleas and hollies. If leaves are reddish or have reddish dots, and are overall light green to yellowish, they may need more nitrogen such as from ammonium sulfate. If leaves are light green between veins, this is a common symptom indicating iron deficiency. This, in turn, may mean the soil pH is too high. Check it first, and correct if

The cougar in a woodchuck trap


hat does a person use to bait a woodchuck?

“I hear they like broccoli,” the farm store merchant suggested. I bubbled: “How about cake?” I’ll stop at Hannaford, which is a grocery mart like a Shaw’s, except where I’m from in Morrisville, Vt., we call it Hanafffffford’s, cause the roadside sign’s letter ‘f’ is always blinking. I’ll buy some broccoli and have my new Have a Heart trap baited before ol’ Chucky makes his morning Dunkin’ Donuts run.” The extremely friendly farm store merchant nodded a nod he wished to seem affirming. But my hunch revealed his nod held an underlying, I’ll–believe–it–when–I–see–it, tone. Dink. Farm merchants work 12-hour days shuffling around musty old grain buildings armed with scads of pet and weed-food information they’re itching to unload on anyone who has time to spend on the pretense of giving a crap. One wonders how these merchants sustain interest in gentleman farm products year in and year out without maintaining numerous sorted hobbies on the side; like throwing allnude Thursday night tea parties with 4-H award winning giant size gourds as guests or catching lightning bugs in their mouth, until they’ve caught enough the tips of their ears start to glow. Extremely friendly? Maybe. But look beyond the rolled to mid-forearm sleeves of their flannel shirts and the perfectly faded well-worn Carhart workpants—what you’ll come to realize is farm store merchants are no more friendly than the rest of us. Oh, yeah? He’ll believe it when he sees it? Well he can pound peat. I’ll show these farm store geeks who can trap. I’ll bet not an hour passes between setting the trap, Chucky surfacing, then catching a whiff of the locally grown organic store bought broccoli I got him and walking into the trap to nibble. CHA-CHING, down’ll fall the trap flaps along with any need for Chucky worrying I’m going to shoot him, or me worrying my home will be chewed to bits, bit by bit. I think I might even, after five years in my home, do some plantings without fear they’ll end up nine hundred dollar Woodchuck chum. I baited, set, and camouflaged the trap, then went about my business. No luck through the day and evening, but in the morning, though it was hard to tell of what, the Have a Heart was brimming full. I approached the trap slowly to not alarm it’s tenant, and when I got within five feet, what I saw all punted inside a that trap was what looked to be a 55-year-old female divorcee from Montreal, Canada—all bent up and caught right en inside a that woodchuck cage she was, wearing an above mid-thigh cocktail dress, five inch glossy black heels, and a smile. I knew I shouldn’t have shaken garlic and sea salt onto that broccoli. If I had baited the trap with kale and bean sprouts I’d probably had been staring at a self-conscious American liberal De-

mocrat instead of a Canadian. Don’t know which is worse. I quizzed: “How’d you end up in there?” “I just divorced my lawyer husband, I got $7 million in the bank and I get $13,000 a month alimony,” her mood turned less hopeful. “But because my ex is a lawyer, he scored a fantastic lawyer who is in cahoots with the judge, and she ended up awarding my ex all four houses. I have nowhere to go.” Her mood regained a hint of hopefulness. She purred: “So, what are you doing tonight?” Her toenails were shellacked crimson red, a color perfectly offset to her supple skin that bore a tone of tan hard to find, or buy, anywhere, anytime, north of Connecticut. Her skin pat, taught, pulled just so across two set, of prominent ankle bones; the skin, drawing inspection up along her ample calves, and over her symmetrically formed thoroughly moisturized knee caps, through on the top of her thighs, and inside the boundary of her hip bones, the area that is the culde-sac where real business is done; and my eyes and imagination continued shooting north across her abs, abs that had no doubt been defined through hours of awkwardly forced moves played out in front of garishly gigantic mirrors, abs Zumbaed to the point they’d seemed ready to shout “grab the soft mallets Lionel and play us like the marimba we dream to be,” abs cut like gems, numbered; count em; ab one, ab two, ab three, ab four, all full and hard, each baring it’s own identity, and look! two more half abs, tucked just below her rib cage, set as foundation to her goopy man-made creeplepeeple breasts, whose tips pointed skyward in the direction of her taught neck, perfect chin, nose, and tumble-weed ball of damaged yellow hair. Aware my inspection was complete, and with an exacting display of bravado, she whimpered, “Emmmaahh… well?” A pause of not more than a count of two allowed time for our eyes to meet. I answered. “What am I doing tonight? I’m loading you in the truck, driving you 100 miles away, and letting your butt go is what I’m doing tonight.” I loaded her and drove her to the middle of St. Denis in Montreal. I set her free and shouted, “Beware hommes, I just set a filthy rich 50-something year old, lawyer ’s ex wife loose; n’ if she gets her teeth into you you’re gonna regret it, cause she’s got broccoli garlic breath, bad!” Moral of this story? Well, there isn’t a moral per se. It’s just a simple story I made up for your enjoyment. Hope it worked on some small scale.

A faux crisis that’s too good to waste M

ore than a century ago, a rapidly urbanizing United States (the U.S. Census of 1880 found farmers a minority in the labor force for the first time) decided, through the political process, that farming was too important to be left to the farmers to manage. In a tradition going back to the ancient pharaohs, government was seen as the best way to control the food supply and its price for consumers. Various methods have been used saince our post-Civil War turning point—that is, that our deflationary monetary policy, surplus exports, a fixed parity formula, floating parity, deficiency payments, emergency aid would somehow do the trick. As farmers responded with soaring productivity gains, over supply and inadequate producer prices have been the central problem. In the early decades of the 20th century, farmer-quits weren’t a problem—indeed, as late as 1962, the USDA was still preaching about a surplus of farmers and a labor shortage for industry. However, since the 1930s, the strategy has been of one of providing the least amount of aid needed to keep farmers producing, not quitting—this to ensure enough commodity supply to keep consumer food prices from rising as fast as urbanite incomes. Adjusted for inflation, farm income continues to drop while urban income doesn’t, so food-spending-as-a-percent-of-income for urbanites continues to shrink. From near 25 percent in the 1950s, it’s below 10 percent today. The 1951 $1/gallon of milk should cost $8.26 today. It doesn’t. Milk left the farm gate at parity back then. Today, it doesn’t. Dairymen now lose money on milk production. Without some subsidy, some might quit—supply might drop and retail prices might rise and consumers would go political. The 20th century turning point came in the early 1950s, with a governmental decision to dump the full parity formula and go to partial parity. Elected on a platform including that policy plank, President Dwight Eisenhower ’s Ag Secretary Benson declared that “parity was costing the government (translation: urbanite taxpayers) too much money.” Read it yourself in “Problems of Plenty”, an ag-economics history by Douglas Hurt. In a time when “we’re waiting for the farm vote” meant

it still mattered (today, it doesn’t) an urbanite-oriented campaign based on the “crisis” of soaring consumer costs was needed. After all, butter in 1951 sold for 86 cents/pound, twice its price of 1941. Folksinger Woody Guthrie was enlisted to rewrite an earlier tune with new lyrics describing “One pound of butter for two pounds of gold” and it made the pop charts at no. 15 the year “Tennessee Waltz” was no. 1. Guthrie didn’t sing about the growth in urbanite income: average non-farm wage in 1951 at $3732, compared to $1462 in 1941. Yes, butter doubled, but wages nearly tripled. Food was actually getting cheaper, in terms of the real measure, minutes-of-work-needed-to-buy. Read the historical stats for yourself in “The Value of a Dollar, 1860-2004” by Scott Derks. A crisis too good to waste (a little Democrat Chicago politics lingo there) had to be created; it was and it gave birth to the then new farm subsidy principle: “Just enough to prevent supply reducing producer quits.” Things might have gone differently. In the late 19th century, the progressives wanted to control lots of things beyond farming—the then-new utility industry, for example. The progressives established the Public Utilities Commission in 1913. Since then, federal and state governments have regulated power and communications producers, but had to promise them 10 to 12 percent return on investment (ROI) to get the authority. Why didn’t farming get the same status and the same ROI guarantee? Well, not enough column inches here for a full discussion, but suffice it to say that the progressives (who proclaimed themselves to be above mere politics and ideology “nobody in here but us highly-skilled above-average-intelligence managerial-expert technocrats, shouldering the burden of governing all you ungrateful lesserintelligence folks”) were sufficiently politically sensitive to realize that a “10 percent solution” was essential to seize control of the communications and power companies—but it wasn’t needed to conquer a sole-proprietorship farming culture. All of this history explains why, in Shakespearean phrasing, “What’s past is prologue”—since the-‘50s rise of agmanagement practice there’s the least amount of consumer subsidy needed to prevent producer quits. This is why

Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas vetoed a money-saving (for urbanites) downward tweak of the current use formula for farmer subsidy; it will inevitably be overridden by Douglas’ pro-consumer Golden Dome legislative branch. For political reasons, the legislators have decided not to override immediately, but they have historical precedent and political, demographic arithmetic on their side. Douglas has the now obsolete notion that a deal once made should be honored—and he’ll soon be out of office. The actual food producers, unlike the power producers, lack the organization and clout to get their 10 percent ROI as a regulated public utility or to get a reasonable price at their point of sale—such as goods-and-services providers which have controlled their own income via supply management: licensure for professionals, production-control for businesses. In Vermont, the now politically dominant and skillful exurbanite class (mostly the landed gentry leftists) wants to reside amongst, and drive past, pretty looking farms but is not willing to pay a cent more to keep its bucolic viewshed without actually—ugh—working in it (manure smells and all). I’ve seen this movie before in the last reel: the urbanite majority always wins. Nationwide such least subsidy needed strategy has been long-term successful (exception being the dairy strikes of the 1930s). In Vermont, the gentry has always won in the past. My guess in this current use flap? They’ll win again. Longtime Vermont resident Martin Harris now lives in Tennesee.

This is the first year that Bellows Falls Union High School has competed in the Vermont State annual Envirothon Competition. The competition was held at Farm and Wilderness Camp in Plymouth, Vermont in May. It was a full day of events in which students were tested on their knowledge in five categories of Vermont’s environment: wildlife, forests, soils, aquatics, and a current environmental Issue in which students were required to do research, present their findings and state any recommendations they had in an oral presentation. The team consisted of five main members and two alternates: Codi-Ann Hindes, Taylor Smith, Marion Major, Joey Aiken, Aaron Morton, Hannah Hodsden, and Sarah Engerman. Susan Steiner, the team’s coach, trained with the students throughout year in preparation for the event. The Bellows Falls team took 1st in the Aquatics division with a score of a 93. It not only was the top score of the day, the only time a team has scored higher than this was 3 years ago in 2007 and 9 years ago in 2001. Bellows Falls also took 1st place in the oral presentation with a score of 185.6, the only event that counted for double points. The last time a team has scored higher than this

was 9 years ago in 2001 with a score of 192. By the end of the day the Bellows Falls team ended up tying for 2nd place overall. To top off the day of events, the Bellows Falls alternate team members scored 1st place with their alternates group. “The work was quite challenging for all of us, in fact,

quite overwhelming at times, however, this group had such positive energy and the students enjoyed being together which consequently resulted in quite an accomplishment.” said Susan Steiner, Science Educator and Envirothon coach. Steiner said, “We are very lucky here in Bellows Falls

to have a great pool of professional people in the area in which to draw from, who have been more than willing to share in their knowledge and take the time to work with the students.” Steiner said she looked forward to coaching a new team for next year ’s competition.

YMCA youth camp has openings SPRINGFIELD—The Meeting Waters YMCA still has openings in its Lewis Day Camp program. Its leaders are reaching out to parents with four family-centered qualities of the regional YMCA’s camp. “While there are many benefits to parents and kids, as it relates to parents, we like to stress four themes,” said camp director Susan Fortier. “First is our quality. We know that is most important to all parents. Our staff, facilities, curriculum and practices are second-to-none. Second, our camp schedule is based on most parents’ working schedules. Third, we offer bus service from Vermont and New Hampshire. And, fourth, our rates are competitive but we have several forms of financial assistance for those who still can not afford our fees.” Fortier explained that Lewis Day Camp is unique in that it is licensed as a school-age child care program with regu-

latory agencies in both Vermont and New Hampshire. Youngsters that have completed kindergarten through 13 years-of-age canm attend both one- and two-week sessions June 28 through Aug. 20. Core camp activities include YMCA swim lessons, sports, arts and crafts, free swim, cooperative games, hiking, archery, nature education, and canoeing. All of this takes place on the Meeting Waters YMCA’s 52-acre property in Springfield, Vt. Bus transportation is provided to Lewis Day Camp, KinderCamp, and Leaders-in-Training at no additional cost from Bellows Falls, Brattleboro, Charlestown, Chester, Putney, Saxtons River, Springfield, Walpole, and Westminster. For more information, call the camp through the following local telephone exchanges: Brattleboro 802-246-1036, Bellows Falls 802-463-4769 or Springfield 802-885-8131.

The pope and the shooting star


ritics of the Roman Catholic Church like to paint the 2,000-year-old first Christian institution as being outof-step with modern science; such notions today are prejudicial and ill informed. Moral issues as they relate to science and technology aside, the Vatican is very much interested in modern scientific research, especially the field of astronomy. While critics may cite the Vatican’s denouncing of 17th-century astronomer Galileo Galilei as evidence of the church’s scientific repression, that’s stale news to the pope’s 21st-century staff of credentialed clerical astronomers and astrophysicists. Recently, Pope Benedict XVI kicked off the opening of the Vatican Observatory’s new stand-alone digs in Castel Gandolfo, the pope’s summer residence near the Eternal City, Rome. The observatory had been located in small quarters on castle property since 1935. During the week that the new, expanded observatory headquarters opened, the pope spent several hours with papal astronomers learning about black holes, dark matter and the moments immediately following the Big Bang. For church leaders, there’s profound majesty in understanding the our univers is immensely old. For them, there appears to be no challenge to the “Word of God” in accepting the universe as it was created eons ago.

Pope Benedict began the open house with a prayer and blessing for the staff and gathered news crew. A few opening words of greeting were then offered by U.S. Jesuit astronomer Fr. George Coyne, former director of the observatory. Two years ago, Seeing Stars was kindly granted an interview, via e-mail, with U.S. astronomer and Jesuit Guy Consolmango while he was at work at the Vatican Observatory. We just learned that Brother Consolmango personally greeted the pope at the recent open house and showed him the Vatican’s own beautiful specimen of the carbon-rich Nakhla meteorite found in Egypt in 1911. This meteorite is believed to have been blasted off the surface of the planet Mars millions of years ago. Consolmango presented Benedict was a pair of gloves to wear to prevent contaminating the specimen while handling the piece of a shooting star. Gently holding the fragment of space rock, the pope said in astonishment, “I am holding a piece of Mars!” According to Coyne’s report to the Catholic News Service, “The Holy Father was curious about our work in the United States of America, so we had some nice photographs of our mountain observatory in Arizona to show him.” The Vatican established the Arizona observatory in Tucson back in 1981 because light pollution had so destroyed Rome’s night sky

for useful deep-sky observing. Today, the observatory’s administrative and data work is conducted at the newly expanded Castel Gandolfo site; observing is conducted in Arizona. ”The pope looked very carefully at our exhibits,” Coyne told the news media following the observatory’s open house. “He very much wanted to be involved with our new headquarters. His visit was magnificent because it shows his personal interest in our work—after all, it is his observatory.” What’s in the Sky: The Sun is now at its highest point at noon this week as June 21 marked the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The plane of the ecliptic—the path that our Sun and the local planets travel as viewed from Earth—is low in the sky this time of year—at midnight.

e’re busy people, right? We’ve got things to do, places to be, commitments to keep. We have families and friends, jobs or volunteer work or both. Some days it feels like we’re right out straight. It seems like there is always something demanding our attention—whether it’s a work commitment or a family obligation or housework that needs tending. We jump from one event or appointment or responsibility to another. Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes it seems as if most of life is spent rushing to the next thing. So, we can kind of sympathize with the story of a Pharisee named Simon found in the Gospel of Luke (7:36-50). Simon was a busy guy with lots of Pharisee-stuff to do. And, on this particular day, he cleared his schedule to have Jesus over for dinner. Jesus was gaining a reputation as a teacher and a healer. Simon probably saw this dinner date as a way to bolster his standing in the eyes of the other Pharisees. But Simon also, likely, had some questions about Jesus. Could he be who everyone says he is? Is this guy for real? Simon wanted to see for himself. So, reclining at the table as was the custom in that day, Simon gets his chance. Only, before Simon knew it, a woman who had a reputation of her own arrives on the scene. Right before his very eyes she begins wash-

ing Jesus feet with her tears and drying them with her hair. And Jesus does nothing about it. Simon can’t believe what he is seeing. Someone like Jesus shouldn’t allow himself to be approached in this way. Exasperated and annoyed Simon jumps to the only reasonable conclusion he can fathom, “If this man were a prophet,” he thinks to himself, “he would have known who and what kind of woman this is who is touching him—that she is a sinner.” No other explanation seems possible. Jesus, however, sensing what is going on in Simon’s head, invites him to slow down, to reconsider. He tells him a parable and asks him to reflect on questions of forgiveness and generosity and love. And he asks Simon to consider the possibility that things are not always what they seem. For instance, Jesus says, “I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has bathed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair…You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.” Jesus does know what sort of woman this is, and he knows what sort of man Simon is as well. It’s a human-thing to jump to conclusions, to judge other people and to justify ourselves. You’ve heard the term ‘Rush to Judgment.’ How often do we write-off others because we disagree with them in some way? It makes our

world easier if we can put things in tidy categories. Then we don’t have to think about it too much and we are free to get on with the next thing. Unfortunately things like forgiveness and generosity and love are a bit more time consuming. What would happen if we slowed down just a little bit? Would we see in each other people in need of God’s love, people in need of forgiveness? Would we experience God’s grace for ourselves in new ways? It strikes me that Jesus very seldom seemed to be in a rush. In fact, Jesus didn’t hurry very much at all in the Scriptures. He had time for Simon and the woman and the many others he encountered on the way. We don’t know if Simon became a different man because of his dinner with Jesus or if he just rushed on to the next thing. We don’t know if Simon reacted to Jesus’ challenge or if he was changed because of it. But the real question may be, are we? Rev.

Lake Monsters Take 2 of First 3 By Fred Pockette

In the second game of the series played last Saturday in Burlington the Lowell Spinners scored 5 runs into the final 2 innings to open up a 1-0 lead and cruise to a 6-2 win. Vermont would have been shutout, but with 2 outs, and a man on first in the bottom of the ninth, Lowell pitching issued 4 straight walks, accounting for the Lake Monsters only runs. Lowell’s top two hitters, Garcia and lead off hitter Felix Sanchez were on fire, going 7-for-10 between them. Sanchez was 3-for-5, scored twice and he drove in a run. Garcia was 4-for-5 with a double. First baseman Sean Killeen had a huge three run homerun in the ninth to seal Lowell’s win. Starter Madison Younginer was the winning pitcher for the Spinners. He pitched 5 innings of shutout baseball, allowing just two hits and a walk, while registering 8 strikeouts in an impressive outing. He as relieved by Charles Rosario and Cesare Angeloni. Vermont’s designated hitter Stephen King had a pair of doubles in his 4 trips to the plate. Shane McCatty picked up the loss in relief for Vermont by pitching 3 1/3 innings and allowing 6 runs on 8 hits, while striking out 3. The first two split games set the stage for the rubber game last Sunday. Vermont took this one 3-1 on the strength of their pitching. The Lake Monsters Matt Swynenberg, Wilson Eusebio and Dustin Crane combined to hold the Spinners of-

Vermont’s only professional baseball team, the Lake Monsters, opened their 2010 season by hosting the Lowell Spinners (Red Sox affiliate) this past weekend in Burlington. The two teams split the first two games, before Vermont captured the third game to take the series two games to one. In the opener last Friday night the Lake Monsters broke a scoreless tie by scoring 5 runs in the 4th, and cruised from their to a 9-4 win. Second basemen Hendry Jiminez and right fielder Wade Moore led the Monster ’s offensive attack. Jiminez was 2-for-5, with a double, 2 RBIs and he scored once. Moore was 2-for-4, including a two-run homerun in the six run fourth inning, and he also scored once. Chad Mozingo also contributed by driving a two-run double to right in that fateful fourth inning. The Spinners got two hits apiece from second baseman Joe Garcia and left fielder Brandon Jacobs. Garcia had a double and scored once in his 4 trips to the plate, while Jacobs drove in a run in the losing effort. Bobby Hansen picked up the win in relief for the Lake Monsters. Hansen worked 2 1/3 innings of shutout baseball, giving up just one hit with two strikeouts. He relieved Vermont’s starter Taylor Jordan. Jordan worked the first 4 2/3 innings giving up four runs (only one earned) on 7 hits with 5 strikeouts and one walk. Glenn Gibson finished up the game by pitching the two innings of perfect baseball, striking out 3 of the 6 hitters he faced. Starter Roman Mendez suffered the loss for Lowell. In his three plus innings of work Mendez gave up 6 runs (only 3 earned) on 3 hits, including Moore’s homerun. He also had 3 strikeouts and issued a pair of walks.

fense to just one run and three hits as Vermont captured the rubber game 3-1 in front of 2,307 people at Centennial Field in Burlington. Swynenberg started, and picked up the win for Vermont. He worked the first 5 innings, pitching shutout baseball, giving up just one hit while striking out 3. He was relieved by Eusebio, who claimed his first hold of the season. He earned it by working 2 2/3 innings, giving up just a pair of hits. Unfortunately on of those hits was a solo homerun by Killeen, his second of the year and the series. Crane pitched hitless baseball the final 1 1/3 innings to pick up his first save of the year. Offensively designated hitter David Freitas and shortstop Jason Martinson led Vermont. Freitas was 2-for-4 with a double and he drove in 1 of Vermont’s 3 runs. Martinson matched those numbers, replacing the double with a run scored. Lowell starter Tyler Wilson was the losing pitcher. Wilson pitched the first 5 innings, giving up 1 run on 4 hits, with 4 strikeouts. Garrett Rau and Armando Zerpa also saw action on the mound for the visiting Spinners. The Lake Monsters hosted the Connecticut Tigers this past Monday and Tuesday, before heading out on their first road trip of the year. They visited the Tri-City Valley Cats (Houston Astros) this past Wednesday through Friday. This weekend they play a 2 game series at Connecticut, before returning home to complete the month by hosting Tri-City in a 3 game set starting Monday.

LUDLOW—The Ludlow Village Merchants will be celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with a fireworks show on Saturday, July 3. Fundraising began for the Merchant group last summer at the annual Zucchini Festival to help raise money after no fireworks lighted the sky in 2009 due to lack of funding. When local Ludlow resident and pyro technician Stew Bodine of Atlas PyroVision Productions offered to work with the group, former American Legion Ballard-Hobart Post 36 Commander Ray Martel was contacted to inquire if the Legion would be facilitating the fundraising for 2010. For many years residents and visitors alike have been delighted in and perhaps taken for granted the 4th of July show our local American Legion BallardHobart Post 36 has provided for years, now the Legion has passed the tradition to the Ludlow Village Merchants and has been working hard to make sure enough money is collected to provide a high quality fireworks show. Donation containers are collecting change and bills at local businesses and 2010 Ludlow Raffle tickets are being sold at retailers on Main Street. A collaboration with Ludlow Streetscapes, the Gill Oddfellows Nursing Home, Okemo Mountain Resort and volunteer support of individuals and local businesses sponsorship made the 2010 Ludlow Winter Carnival: Red, White and Blue the primary fundraising event. A bake sale over Memorial Day weekend added to the coffers with additional generous tax deductible donations from private individuals this spring and substantial checks from Okemo Mountain Resort, Okemo Community Challenge, Vermont Properties and the American Legion Ballard-Hobart Post 36 are

Salute to Rogers and Ambrose I

t isn’t too often that two, major arts-presenting organizations have their chief executive officers retire—both after long and very successful tenures. I am talking about Andrea Rogers, who steered the Flynn Center for the Arts, and Jane Ambrose of the UVM Lane Series. I know that all of us, actively aligned with various Vermont arts organizations, realize that these two women didn’t just appear in white gloves to comment and leave the dirty work for others. They used a good deal of gentle persuasion to raise the funds for everything ranging from total renovation of a building to making certain that local audiences had the opportunity to see the best that the world had to offer in the arts. Both women built multi-faceted reflections of the arts communities in Vermont into their respective support bases. I use the plural, communities, advisedly: all one has to do is to attend local or traveling companies (where there are presenters in various aspects of the arts) to see how

there are many different facets that make up financial support by buying tickets to events. This is also true of the support that comes from private and corporate funding. I moved here from Los Angeles in 1982; at that time, Los Angeles had only the L.A. Philharmonic. Los Angeles imported San Francisco Opera every fall, later to be followed by the New York City Opera. Nothing of any consequence happened in Los Angeles—it shipped on the smallest of scales. Why mention this fact? Because when I began to attend performances at the Flynn or the Redstone Recital Hall, I felt I had died and gone to heaven; that’s because Los Angeles compared so unfavorably with what the Lane Series and the Flynn Center were doing here in Vermont. I made one observation that drew the attention of both Rogers and Ambrose: I said some discouraging words about the practice of publically thanking the public and private benefactors that help make Vermont a hub for the arts. Each of these women spoke quietly, but passionately to me, earnestly trying to convince me that these benefac-

tors could really never get enough thanks for what they did for the arts community in Vermont. I learned my lesson. I now consider both women to be my friends as well as fellow lovers of the arts. We have shared singing together; we have shared earnest conversations as well as lighthearted ones together as well. They have extended many kindnesses to me over the years, for which I take this opportunity, once again, to render heartfelt thanks to each of them individually for all they have done for me personally and for the arts community in Vermont. Burlington resident Dan Wolfe observes and critiques the local arts scene for The Eagle. His column appears weekly.

U.S. Air Force observes Vermont Civil Air Patrol By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND—The Vermont Wing of the Civil Air Patrol held a wingwide observed training event June 12 at the Burlington International Airport. The exercise scenario was provided by officers of the U.S. Air Force. The exercise was designed to improve the operational readiness of the Vermont Wing to conduct missions safely, including coordination of air assets, ground assets, communications and logistics. Aircrews and ground teams were asked to perform prescribed search patterns, directional finding searches, air/ground communication, homeland security, advanced aerial imagery or other photography sorties. Scenarios took crews to several locations in Addison, Rutland and Chittenden counties. The scenarios included searches, by Rutland Airportbased CAP ground crews and others, for a simulated missing aircraft and and several individuals played by CAP personnel. Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with 57,000 members nationwide. CAP performs 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and was credited by the AFRCC with saving 90 lives in fiscal year 2008. Its volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief and counterdrug missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies.

The programs included presentations by Okemo Mountain Resort managers who discussed their career paths and employment opportunities around the resort. Students toured many departments to get a first-hand look at the workplace environment. “The events were created to promote career awareness in the resort industry for local students,” said Okemo Human resources specialist . Recruiter Marianne Langello said, “Serving the community is one of Okemo’s core values and it is important to demonstrate to the future workforce that there are viable career options within the state of Vermont.” For career days that occurred during the ski and snowboard season, students were given an opportunity to enjoy the superlative snow and grooming that Okemo has built its reputation upon. Complimentary lift tickets and rental equipment were provided by Okemo Mountain Resort.
