BANJO DAZE — On Tuesday, July 27, 7 p.m. Rutland County will welcome Banjo Dan and the Midnight Plowboys to the Castelton Green for a special free, outdoor concert. Banjo Dan holds fast to the tenets of bluegrass: strong rhythm, sparkling instrumental solos, soulful vocals and tight harmonies. For three decades, Banjo Dan and crew have represented the soul of bluegrass in Vermont.

By Lou Varricchio CLARENDON — America’s small towns are the backbone of freedom and this month, the Town of Clarendon will show its true colors—red, white and blue. The Clarendon community will gather at the Clarendon Elementary School on Saturday, July 31, for a special evening-long special salute to U.S. troops in harm’s way. The event starts with a community dinner at 6 p.m. and continues until 9 p.m. The salute, an opportunity for all residents to thank local armed forces members and others, will include a familystyle barbeque, 5-6:30 p.m., which sports a lip-smacking menu of ribs, pulled pork, chicken, corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, cole slaw with pineapple, potato salad, watermelon, lemonade, iced tea, and lots’mores. Special games and activities will be held 6-8 p.m.and include carnival games, a dunking booth, team ball games, face painting, bubbles, laughter yoga, and more. Attendees will be asked to help make a tile American flag for the school’s Clarendon Community Peace Garden. The actual salute to the troops special program starts at 8-9 p.m. with Christina Skeleros and the CES students singing. The students will screen their “Box of Kisses” for the troops video production at dusk.




YOUNG ARTIST — Violinist and violist Ethan Hoppe of Ludlow has performed at Okemo Young Artists all five summers and will attend music conservatory in the fall on a full scholarship.

$30,000 Powerball winner in Fair Haven By Lou Varricchio FAIR HAVEN — Vermont had a Powerball winner from the July 14 drawing. The lucky anonymous player purchased the $30,000 winning ticket at Stewart’s in Fair Haven. The winning ticket matched four numbers plus the Powerball number. And because the player selected the Power Play option, it multiplied their winnings from $10,000 to $30,000. Vermont lottery games are sold at almost 700 locations throughout the state.

Lovely 5 year old. Spayed Female. Hound mix. 48 lbs. I am a dog who deserves a second chance. When I was brought in by Animal Control my skin was red and inflamed and I had lost much of my hair due to uncontrolled allergies. I was picked up on June 15 in Center Rutland. I have been treated at the shelter and by local veterinarians for the past few weeks. I am on a special allergy diet and, as you can see, I look much better. I have no known history with kids or other animals but seem fine around animals here. Kids over 5, please, for safety’s sake. I really am a Lovely girl and you won’t be sorry if you take me home.

Springfield Humane Society: Abby is an almost two-year-old cutie-pie who is looking for a home for herself and her half-brother Brownie. The dogs are a totally bonded pair who love to go for runs in the meadow, walks along the path and take long naps on a porch swing or even a couch. The pair are house and crate trained. They are shy with new people at first, but warm up soon enough. They both have a sad, unpleasant history with a human male—so they think a man would have to be pretty special to live in their house. Can you please give these kids the life they deserve? Call the Shelter at 885-3997 or stop by.

Emmett and Lini Dunbar:

By Mary McCallum Special to the Outlook LUDLOW — Ludlow-area farmer Emmett Dunbar is the kind of individual responsible for the growing success of Vermont’s farmers market movement. He can be found chatting beneath his Anjali Farms awning every Friday at the Ludlow Farmers Market. Part farmer, philosopher and raconteur, Emmett dispenses wit and anecdotes along with the organic berries, vegetables, heirloom tomato plants and the garlic that his farm is known for. Emmett operates Anjali Farms with his wife Lini Mazumdar (whose line of Lotus Moon Medicinals also occupies the shelves of their colorful stall). Lini’s herbal and medicinal body products are made in small batches from organic herbs grown on their farm. Each Friday, Emmett drives his handpainted “localvore” van to the grassy field of the Ludlow Farmers Market and creates a visual feast for customers. Pints of just picked berries in neat rows and jars of applesauce from his organic apple trees sit beside chunky cucumbers, homemade salad dressings and bags of delicate salad greens.


Changes in TV programming LUDLOW — LPCTV, community TV for the Black RiverValley, announced several programming changes for early July. LPCTV is on local cable TV channels 8 and 10 in the towns of Ludlow, Plymouth, Cavendish, and Mount Holly. Local video programming can also be viewed online at Complete program schedule listings are also found on LPCTV's website and can be seen on the TV Bulletin Board. CHANNEL 8 •American Legion Baseball •Volunteer sports programming producer Bruce Perry hosts coverage of Chester Legion baseball. •Sandra Wright Tribute Concert •Gypsy Reel and the Pleasants perform at the recent Sandra Wright Tribute concert at Okemo. •St. James Methodist Church services: Sundays at 9 a.m. and repeating several times throughout the week.

“The greens are our biggest seller,” he said. “The mix contains up to 25 different varieties of greens and edible flowers.” Dunbar has 13 years of experience managing and participating in the farmers market movement around the country. He was instrumental in starting two other markets in southern Vermont and estimates that he’s packed and unpacked his own wares at least 1,200 times. “I chose to be a vendor at the Ludlow Farmers Market because it’s a great new enterprise, a growing thing that I want to be part of,” he noted. “It’s got a good spread of food products, crafts, produce, baked goods and stuff for kids.” Dunbar, who has been farming for over ten years, specializes in growing and saving his own seed, especially tomatoes. “Our main vegetables are heirloom tomatoes and a half dozen varieties of seed-saved garlic. And we grow another crop that surprises many folks—hops.” Emmett and Lini believe in creating products from scratch using organic fruits, vegetables and organic and culinary herbs. They host overnight visitors for farmstays and hold special events at Anjali Farm that highlight the importance of agriculture and eating local foods. The Dunbars plan to be at the Ludlow Farmers Market every Friday through Columbus Day weekend. “For a market in its second season, it’s got more high quality vendors and variety than many other new markets,” according to Emmett. “It draws locals and tourists, has plenty of shade and lots of parking. And where else could you find fruits, vegetables, local meats, knitted Frisbees, frozen pizza, vegetable sushi, stuffed quail, fishing lures made of spoons and the best croissants you’ve ever tasted in Vermont?” Check It Out: Ludlow Farmers Market is located on Route 103 south of Ludlow on the lawn of Okemo Mountain School. It is open every Friday, 4-7 p.m. through summer and early fall. Anyone interested in signing up to be a vendor, do a demonstration, or play music at the market, should contact Jerry Milligan at 802734-3829 or e-mail him at CHANNEL 10 •Plymouth School Closing Interviews: As the life inside the Plymouth School comes to a close, the memories will live on.

Pluto’s long, long night N

ew Mexico astronomer Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto accidentally in 1930. I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Tombaugh in 1977 at a meeting of the Lehigh Valley Amateur Astronomical Society in Allentown, Pa. Tombaugh was a gentle and humble man. I think Tombaugh would be proud of NASA’s New Horizons mission to reach this smallest of planets. Sadly, it is probably one of NASA’s final great interplanetary missions; the space agency is currently being gutted by the clearly anti-space Obama regime. NASA’s peaceful mission to explore the cosmos has never been more uncertain and a U.S. president has never been more hostile to the space-science community. NASA’s New Horizons robot spacecraft is on its nine-year deep-space voyage to the planet Pluto—ok, dwarf planet or KBO (Kuiper Belt Object) or—whatever current buzz word you want to slug this fascinating world. The plutonium-powered spacecraft, traveling at 47,000 mph, will flyby chilly Pluto five years from now—July 2015. If successful, it will be the first humanmade object ever to reach Pluto approximately 3 billion miles from Earth. Pluto is the farthest, large planetary body from our Sun. Occasionally, Pluto gives up this position to Neptune due to the unusual, elliptical Plutonian orbit. A year on Pluto lasts 248 terrestrial years. In 2000, after scrubbing its Pluto Fast Flyby, later renamed Kuiper-Pluto Express mission, space agency officials were forced to reconsider their mistake when many scientists and vocal pro-space groups protested loudly. “We have to get to Pluto quickly,” the experts claimed. So, from the ashes of the PFF/KPE mission was born New Horizons. But what’s the hurry and why should we visit Pluto now, you may ask? As it moves away from the Sun, Pluto’s atmosphere will re-freeze falling to the surface as a nitrogen-carbon dioxidemethane snow sometime around the year 2020. Hence, scientists are anxious to get to Pluto now, while it still has a

My pal Arden O

le Russ. Fweoohwee. Sorry I’m late.” “Not a concern Arden, thanks for showing up anyways. I wanted to know how much you think you’d end up charging me if you plowed my dooryard for this winter? “Well, ahh. ffpheeew. You want it pushed back fully, back there? ffPheeew, haaaa. Let me catch my breath first.” “Take your time, Arden. (I laughed) Got all day. No snow in the forecast for a while anyway … that you’d need ta plow, I’m guessing.” “Well, Russ, I hate to be late ya know, but the gol darn people drinkin them, fwooofph … bitter, foreign coffees. What is it they like about it? It’s strong? They tryin to get high? Why don’t they just drink booze? It’s quicker by two.” “What are you sayin’, Arden?” “I’m overly busy. Took too much on, too many jobs. Stone skippin season’s bout flush, winter’s comin’, the ole rubble trailer foundation gotta be bucked up with spruce poles and hemlock boughs right off. I’m hammered with work. Woke up this morning, give myself a French dry-clean, hit the road runnin’, doin’ stuff alllll day. Couldn’t imagine being married. Sorry I’m late.” (I laugh) “You ain’t holding me up, Arden.” “Hope not. But see they got one a them frappacheenolatte, capalatte, fralattes, yogalattes, er fricken pilattes, I don’t know, I can’t keep my lattes straight nowadays, bbut anyway, they got one a them big gol’ darned frickin’ coffee machines at my place I buy my lottery tickets at. Big as a wood splitter. It’s not so bad it takes half the day for the future state senator behind the counter to pull me two or three lotto tickets, but when she’s got ta make one a them coffeecheeno rigs, for some filthy-footed flip-flop wearin’ hippie, why the Egyptians push blocks up the long side of a pyramid faster. The fact that it takes a jet engine to froth milk—the poor gol’ darn hippies in that restaurant tryin to be peaceful reading gluten-free food hand-outs and playin Jumble, why they’d like to power-blast granola out their nostrils when that frothin machine goes off. Must be there’s the same engines in the milk frothin’ machines as they use in the gal danged automatic hand dryers in the public rest rooms now. Miniature 747 engines in them hand dryers. Loud? Ffwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh. My friggin’ hands don’t need to be bone-dry man. I like em a little moist! Them dryers are environmentally good cause they don’t make no paper, but crap, the noise pollution. I stopped at a rest area, one that’s closed now because the state government’s spending too much money, so they thought they’d close some rest areas and take the money they save from closing the rest

areas and go ahead and spend it opening up a new jail for women, but I was at the rest area doing my number one business, guy triggered the hand-dryer -scared the fluid down outa me so hard I sandblasted a nickel sized whole straight through the urinal. Didn’t know it was so loud to make heat in the 21st century. Cavemen rub two sticks together, make fire, took a while, but cripes, least it didn’t wake the babies back at the cave. My 40-year-old woodstove makes more heat then them hand dryers and it burns quiet as Helen Keller doing karaoke. No need to have fancy coffee. Two teaspoons of instant stirred with your finger set ya right up. But you pay four or five dollars for a coffee made from foreign bean, topped with an inch of very loudly made milk froth, you feel special, like a New York Yankee, or Dallas Cowboy, or a retired French teacher living in Paris. Make you feel like things you envy but know you’ll never be. Fancy coffee makes them people feel rich. Or, richer, relative to what they are. That’s the hook, I know that, and I’m dumb.” “So, ole’ Russ, if your driveway includes the right-of-way, its 45 bucks a plow. If it starts at them two birch posts stuck into, and stickin’ out of the ground, 25. I won’t plow but only when there’s more en four inches. My hand from fingertip to wrist is eight. I put a salute stiff hand, finger first into the freshly fallen, and if my hand’s covered more than half, I plow … if that’s alright?” (I laughed) “It starts at the right-of-way. So fifty. You’re hired Arden.” “Any cash layin’ around you gotta get rid of? Rid of it my way and I’ll take two twenties a plow instead. Barrack ull never know the difference.” “Two 20s it is. Things are out of hand in America ain’t they Arden?” “Well I don’t know if they’re out-a-hand ole Russ, but I know frothin milk and dryin hands is louder than NASCAR. I gotta get. Work, work, work. Can’t believe there’s people can’t find any. My down fall? Never feeling entitled.” Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

gaseous atmosphere. Missing the January-February 2006 launch date would have meant waiting until the year 2200 when Pluto’s longsleeping atmosphere sublimes back from ice to gas. What will we find when we finally visit Pluto? By Lou Varricchio Being almost 6 billion km from the Sun, the rock and ice-bound planet’s surface must be terribly cold, colder than liquid nitrogen. Estimates place Pluto’s surface at a cryogenically chilly minus 396 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s cold enough for water ice to act like rock. But the warmer interior protected by miles of thick nitrogen, methane and carbon monoxide ices, and heated by radioactive rocks at the planet’s core, may support a deep layer of liquid water—a Plutonian ocean. It’s fun to speculate what life forms might have evolved in that Stygian sea. Any future astronauts landing on Pluto will stand on the frontier of the solar system. They will see the dwarf planet’s cratered moon Charon looming large in the sky. Inward, toward the Sun, our feeble home star will appear much like Venus does from Earth. There will be no warmth from its rays. Outward, the explorers will gaze into the immense gulf of interstellar space. What’s in the Sky: A full Moon occurs July 25 at 9:36 p.m. On July 27, look for the elusive planet Mercury at dusk in the west. Mercury is to the lower left of the star Regulus about 25-30 minutes after sunset. All you need are binoculars to get a glimpse of the hot little planet.

Two percent solution


f you lack the imagination to invent a London-based private eye (with a sharp M.D. sidekick) as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did in the late 1800s, you can always ripoff the author’s inventiveness by appropriating the fictional characters (mix in a few historical ones), give one of them a heroin addiction and the other a cure and—voila!—you can call your opus “The Seven Percent Solution” and even get the little unoriginal tale turned into a Hollywood movie. That’s what screenwriter-director Nicholas Meyer did back in the mid-1970s. His Holmes/Watson theft left no lasting literary footprint, but his title did (which was even a variation on Conan Doyle’s own text); it has since been applied to everything from debtgrowth analysis to diabetes management. Other numbers have been used as well; one is “the two percent solution”, a 2005 political treatise by Matthew Miller. It’s now a Sierra Club catch-phrase for carbon-footprint reduction. Not to be outdone, the Vermont Education Department has its own “two percent solution”: a pro forma budget-cut suggestion to local school districts. Since annual K-12 spending is now above $1.4B, two percent works out to all of $23MM. As I’ve laid out the basic math in previous columns, this amount could be captured by raising the pupil-teacher ratio from 10-to-1 to 12-to-1, about where it was in the cave-dweller school days of the previous decade. A recent math exercise by Hugh Kemper demonstrates the political impossibility of any 2 percent solution based on any such primitive behavior as a public-school-teacher Reductionin-Force: he calculates that going from 10.9 to 11.8 in median class size (approximately the same as p/t ratio) would require the RIFing of 837 teachers, losing their votes and all of their extended families’ votes as well. Going to a class size of an educationally punitive 13 would sidewalk —gasp—1,500. When class sizes, nationwide, were twice that number—mid-1960s—test scores were marginally higher and per-pupil costs were a lot lower, but the present-day educator-vote trumps all such considerations. Meanwhile, beneath the radar, the state ed department—in adept co-operation with the Golden Domers on the north side of Montpelier’s State Street—has been operating a different cost-reduction program, so successful that its statistics are beginning to show up in such places as state census data and school enrollment numbers. As a 2007 study by the Vermont Housing Finance Agency documented, increasing housing costs has had the desirable effect of reducing school age-child population per house. Recent federal census data have shown, from 1995 to 200, Golden Domer actions raising an entire range of cost-of-residency items in Ver-

mont have had the salubrious effect of causing a major out-migration of the 25-to-39 agegroup (over 2200 in five years) and, thanks to recent research showing that, when young adults leave the state, they actually take their children with them, reducing K-12 enrollment proportionately. As of 2008 it was at 94K, down from an earlier high of 106K, and even below the VHFA prediction of 95K by mid-decade. The strategy has even successfully reduced the Vermont birth rate, now lowest in the nation at about 10 per 1,000 of population compared to a national 14. You might call this pursuit of enrollment-reduction the Sarah Lawrence option, after the Bronxville, N.Y., college (1981 S.L. graduate— on campus recently, to give informal instruction in Chicago-style, back-alley Democrat politics, was controverisal White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel) management decision in the 1970s to solve a fiscal-deficit-per-student problem by reducing the number of students. The objective: to achieve, if not profitability, at least income-expense balance. Since Vermont now, like Sarah Lawrence then, finds its perpupil costs excessive, the solution lies in reducing the enrollment until the necessary savings have been captured. Seen in that light, with a target of $23MM and an annual per-pupil cost of $14.3K (2008) with basic math skills you can see that an enrollment cut of about 1,600 would do the job. Indeed, such cuts are already underway; they approximate the annual enrollment drop already achieved, by means of prescient and thoughtful Golden Dome policy, recorded for each of the last four years. The public school establishment has historically taken varied views of the unit-cost question. When enrollments were growing, educrats argued that each new student was a measurable new cost for seating and staffing, but as the 1950s receded and the 1960s proceeded, enrolments stagnated and then, in some states such as Vermont which, with foresight, enabled the trend, began to shrink, the reverse was argued: now, no student number shrinkage ever triggers a spending reduction, Sarah Lawrence to the contrary notwithstanding. In light of all the above, it’s now clear that the SED-proposed two percent solution is already in the works, and is succeeding exactly as planned, although not exactly as publicized. Longtime Vermont resident Martin Harris now lives in Tennesee.

SLIPPERY ROCKS — Growing up, some of us were lucky to have a big brother to watch out for us when it came time to cross the slippery rocks of life. In the case of these three boys at Quechee Falls, the steady hand of a caring adult male makes a day at the local swimming hole a cool, fun and safe experience. About navigating those slippery rocks today? No sweat, man! Photo by Stephanie Simon

Smith to run for state’s attorney in primary RUTLAND — Katie Smith of Rutland announced she is running for the position of Rutland County State’s Attorney. She is running in the Republican primary race scheduled for vote on Aug. 24. Smith has been engaged in the practice of criminal law, including experience in Rutland County at the Vermont State’s Attorney’s Office and at the Public Defender ’s Office, for the past decade. Smith said she believes the state’s attorney, who is the chief law enforcement

officer in the county, needs to work with local police to ensure public safety. “Crime is a hindrance to the community—to the safety and well being of community members and to the businesses trying to succeed in this difficult economy. The state’s attorney needs to focus on accountability; accountability both for those who commit crime and accountability within the office for those who prosecute those crimes.” When asked why she chose to return to run in the

Republican primary race for Rutland County State’s Attorney she said, “Rutland County has a lot to offer. I am dedicated to returning it to its vitality and to making it a drug free, crime free community. I want people to want to remain in Rutland County, to raise families, to send their children to school and to open businesses. I have a vision of safe neighborhood communities where we all work together to improve the county and one another ’s quality of life.”

for-6 with one run, a double and two RBI. Adalberto Santo was 3-for-4 with two runs, a double and three RBI, while Gift Ngoepe and Kyle Saukko both had two hits and three runs. The loss was the fourth straight suffered by Vermont at State College, dating back to 9-6 and 12-0 losses to the Spikes at Medlar Field July 3-4, 2008. With losses in the first two of the three-game series, Vermont will lose its first series of the season after winning seven and splitting a two-game series. Blke Kelso and David Freitas both had two of Vermont's six hits in the game, while the Lake Monsters scored their two runs on a bases loaded in the first inning and a Justin Miller RBI infield single in the 9th. After the back-to-back losses the Vermont Lake Monsters got back in the win column July 13 as Colin Bates and Shane McCatty both tossed four strong innings, while Russell Moldenhauer added a two-run double in a 3-1 victory over the Spikes in the final game of their three game set. Vermont got its first run in the top of the first as Hendry Jimenez tripled with one out and scored on a Stephen King sacrifice fly. Jimenez's triple was just the second of the season for the Lake Monsters and the first since Ronnie LaBrie tripled on June 22. Bates got the start for Vermont and allowed three hits with one walk and two strikeouts over the first four innings. Two of those hits were two-out singles in the first and the other a two-out single in the second. McCatty (2-1) took over in the fifth, allowing one run on four hits in his four innings for the win. The game stayed 1-0 Vermont until the sixth when Spikes reliever Trent Stevenson walked Chad Mozingo and Stephen King ahead of Moldenhauer's two-run double to centerfield. It was Moldenhauer's first double of the season to go along with his five home runs and he nows leads the team with 13 RBI in just 11 games. McCatty had a 16-inning scoreless streak snapped in the seventh inning when he gave up a one-out double to Matt Skirving and a two-out RBI single to Gift Ngoepe, who was tagged out trying to advance to second. Neil Holland tossed a scoreless ninth inning to earn his second save of the season. David Freitas was 2-for-4 with an RBI to extended his hitting streak to 11 games, the longest for a Lake Monster since J.R. Higley and Francisco Soriano both had 12-game hit streaks during the 2009 season. Freitas, who is now hitting .381 over-


The Vermont Lake Monsters continue to enjoy success in the 2010 season. After losing two in a row on the road against the State College Spikes last Sunday and Monday, including a 132 thumping on Monday, Vermont bounced back to take the third game last Tuesday 3-1. They then went on to defeat the Aberdeen Iron Birds 6-1 last Wednesday to open a six game home stand. After the back-to-back wins the Lake Monsters were 19-7 and had widened their lead over the Connecticut Tigers to 6 games in the New York-Penn League’s Stedlar Division. After winning the opener of their three game series on Sunday, July 11th 3-0 the State College Spikes brought the bats on Monday and destroyed Vermont pitching with a 13-2 win in the second game. The Spikes produced twenty hits to put back-to-back losses on Vermont for the first time this year. Vermont (17-7), which came into the game having allowed the fewest hits (161) in the New York-Penn League this season, gave up the most hits by a Lake Monsters team since Jamestown had 21 hits on August 19, 2009 at Centennial Field in a 13-0 Jammers win. The Spikes used a walk and four hits in the bottom of the first inning to score four runs off Vermont starter Matt Swynenberg (2-1), who had allowed just one run on 11 hits over 22 innings in his first four starts of the season. State College scored two more runs on five hits in the second inning to chase Swynenberg, who gave up six runs on nine hits in just two innings on Monday. Three more runs on three hits and two walks off reliever Cameron Selik gave the Spikes a 9-1 lead after three innings. Vermont used five pitchers in the game with each pitcher allowing at least one run. After four doubles in a 3-0 win over Vermont Sunday, State College added five doubles and a solo homer among its 20 hits in Monday's win. Matt Curry was 4-for-5 with two runs, a double, homer and four RBI for State College (13-11), while Kelson Brown was 4-


Lake Monsters widen lead

all, has nine two-hit games during the 11-game hitting streak. Starter Tyler Waldron (0-2) gave up one run on four hits over five innings to take the loss for State College (13-12), which had won the first two games of the series to give Vermont its first series loss of the season. Bobby Hansen tossed six solid innings and Vermont used a four-run seventh inning to pull away from the Aberdeen Ironbirds as the Lake Monsters opened a six-game home stand with a 6-1 New York-Penn League victory Wednesday, July 14, at historic Centennial Field.
