VERMONT’S TOP GUNS CSJ president to step down Frank Miglorie rose from educator to president
By Lou Varricchio
From Staff & News Reports
email@example.com MIDDLEBURY — The rising price of the metal copper during the past two years has seen a big increase in crime in the United States and Canada. And Vermont is not immune to this unusual 21st-century copper crime wave. The Vermont State Police and Vermont Department of Public Service, along with officials from Vermont Electric Cooperative , Green Mountain Power and Central V ermont Public Service, r eleased a new warning about the dangers of copper theft. The latest warning was issued July 29 after a wave of break-ins in Vermont, including recent incidents at two Vermont Electric Cooperative substations and two Green Mountain Power substations. “The person or persons responsible for these thefts do not r ealize the extr eme danger they put themselves into. Cutting a ground wire is not without risk as they carry current and the effect could be deadly ,” said engineer Hans E. Mertens of the Vermont Department of Public Service. “The value of copper stolen can never outweigh the value of a life.” Mertens said several deaths have occurred in the past year as criminals attempted to r emove copper content from electric utility fences and equipment. Copper thieves routinely target vacant business and homes as well as electrical substations, cellular telephone towers and silos, telephone land lines, railroads and water wells, according to Mertens. “These individuals ar e putting their lives at risk, and endangering the public,” Col. T om L’Esperance of the Vermont State Police said. “We urge anyone who sees anything suspic ious near a substation or utility property to call 911 immediately.”

RUTLAND — At the annual meeting of the Boar d of Trustees of the College of St. Joseph, President Frank G. Miglorie announced that he will resign at the end of the 201 1-12 fiscal year. Miglorie came to CSJ in 1970 and Frank G. Migloserved on the facrie ulty for nine years. He was then appointed academic dean, a position he held for four years. In 1983, the board of trustees installed him as the college’s fourth president. Miglorie was the first lay person and the first male to serve in this position at the Roman Catholic college founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph. Now entering his twenty-eighth year as leader of the college, Miglorie is per haps best known for his entre preneurial spirit, expansion of the college’s pr ograms and campus, and his conservative financial management of the college’s resources. During his tenur e, Miglorie intr oduced a number of curricular innovations to better serve the needs of the region and the state. Most significant among the group are two accelerated bachelor degr ee pr ograms for working adults, the Master of Science See MIGLORE, page 13

Go for the gold
he ongoing debacle that it is the United States government‘s astronomical spending spree is a perfect example of why we should seriously reconsider a return to the good oldfashioned U.S. Gold Standard. Many r espected financial pr os, such as billionaire former pr esidential candidate Steve Forbes, contend that the only way to stop the expiring dollar is to back our currency with gold. Utah legislators recently passed a common-sense law that makes gold and silver legal te nder, a gain, i n t hat s tate. W hat a smart idea. Without gold or some precious material backing up curr ency, it’s basically worthless. And what has kept our money afloat since the 1970s is nothing more than Alan Greenspan’s “irrational exuberance”, except that the international reservoir of exuberance is fast evaporating under the dawning of a new age of financial rationalism. So, why not pass a law like Utah’s her e in Vermont? Let’s make gold and silver legal tender in the Green Mountain State. Utah’s move was the first shot of a money war that is starting—albeit slowly—to put pressure on the Fed to return to the financial sanity of the Gold Standard. So where will all this gold come from to back up America’s money supply? Red China? No, Red China could car e less about helping the poor USA out of its dollar problems; it is too busy mining its own gold to build up its own r eserves (what does that tell you about the Chinese embracing of a gold standard ?). We must look closer to home and be willing to dig in our own backyard. The Americas—north, south and central—have vast gold deposits that can help regrow our lost wealth and international status. New gold deposits have been discovered in the western U.S. and Canadian arctic. (Even V ermont has some potential for small, commer cial native-gold development.) It’s clearly time to start digging
and stockpiling gold as quickly as we can. For example, take a mining company called Portage Resources, Inc. This firm is deeply invested in Peru’s potentially giant Bonanza Cuerpo gold strike. Some of this gold, found in early Permian-age sediments, could be earmarked for pur chase by Uncle Sam when it is fully developed. But we have to be quick and be on-site before the Chinese. According to the Penny Stock Pillager newsletter, “Initial (Portage) drilling tests prove to be so pr omising that the pr oject has been put on the fast track to pr oduction because not only do they want to take advantage of gold’s unpr ecedented price, but they’d be crazy not to be pr oducing when the U.S. government actually makes the decision to move back to the Gold Standard... it'll be crucial that the government build up a solid stockpile befor e making the announcement.” All the experts say gold is popular at the moment because it is safe and they say it has no other deeper, financial merit. Well, they’re only half-way correct. Gold will always be a valued commodity; it will always be a safe haven in both troubled times and boom times. Gold behind the U.S. dollar is akin to that confident feeling you have when you’re a pilot of one of those fancy new , light sport air craft with a ballistic parachute safety system. Or it’s like taking a long motor trip with a fully inflated spare tire. Or it’s like riding a motorcycle with a helmet. Well, you get the point. “Poor financial decisions, soaring oil prices and pr essure from China’s exploding economy are driving the U.S. dollar to a 41-year low,” Steve Forbes said as a r ecent guest of Neil Cavuto on television’s Fox Business Channel. “Going back to the Gold Standard is a must.” It’s time for America to go for the gold— again.

Tossing Dick and Jane
ecause of reasons at which your Humble Scribe can only guess, he is not included in the high-level policy discussions in the executive suites of the public education industry. Thus, it wasn’t until the r ecent campaign to solve public education’s pr oblems by— yet another—curriculum r edesign came to my attention. If you recall—fondly, I’m sure—such past strategic initiatives as New Math, Ebonics, self-directed learning, whole language, and the supposed teaching of basic letters and numbers within an environmentalist weltanschauung, then you’ll not be surprised by two pr oducts of the latest pedagogical r esearch and innovation. One calls for an end to the present archaic practice of the wholeclass novel; the other calls for an end to the equally primitive practice of the basal reader. Here’s a quote r ecently accorded lead-story status on the web page of Education Week ( EW), an industry stalwart. “We have now r eached a point at which teaching with neither the wholeclass novel nor the basal reader, in which the whole class r eads a selection together, is viable. W e must end these practices. They are not benefitting the students. “On top of that, our test-obsessed culture depletes our students’ energy, leaving them with little time for meaningful, authentic interactions…” and so on, including a pathosdrenched description of a disr uptive student acting goofy when the teacher asked a question on the novel the r est of the class was reading. The pr eferred instr uctional model now advocated by EW on behalf of the industry is that the school select the most appr opriate novel for each student in the class and employ as many aides as needed to help each student “…decode and comprehend…” each one. It’s also interesting to note that 95 percent of schools use basal readers, but not one has the former popularity of Dick and Jane. T oday, we hear, the reader has been exiled for inadequate multi-culturality. Eh? For that argument, read “Losing Our Lan-

he sports news is all about reporting and re-reporting how great a guy the 23-year-old who caught Derek Jeter ’s 3,000 hit ball is for giving Derek back his ballie. And the whole time I’m thinking—yeah, he’s a great guy, but what about Derek Jeter? He’s a great guy, too. Why doesn’t someone ask Derek why he didn’t tell the kid to keep the ball and go cash in? Humans are crazy for junk, man. The ball, the actual one Derek got his 3,000 hit with, isn’t worth anything—nothing, zilch, nada to Derek Jeter or the Hall of Fame.

Residents and businesses here in our picturesque Town of Chester, Vt., were thoroughly put to the test for patience and perseverance while dealing with planned bridge construction of not just one, but two bridges over the course of three months, right when public schools were wrapping up the year and summer tourism kicks into high gear. Chester is located at the cr ossroads of New England where east-west highway Route 1 1 intersects with north-
guage,” in which author -teacher Sandra Stotsky laid out the sorts of things—such as the use of African or Oriental language bits or the purposeful introduction of story families with all unr elated members—all of which take time to explain and show up in such frequency as to detour the learning of basic E nglish. ( Stotsky’s bo ok w as w ritten 12 years ago, and hasn’t been seriously r ebutted since.) While the Dick and Jane re aders have vanished, the once-basic novels—from “Huckleberry Finn” to “Ivanhoe” haven’t. Of course, they’re now all accused of cultural or colonial insensitivity and ther efore the innovative educational fr ontier now should be, as EW reports, letting each student choose his own. Of course this all will r equire a one to one adult-tostudent ratio to guide a dozen (in Vermont; it would be 22 in Utah) dif ferent r eaders in a given classroom, each digesting a different book. So it’s akinto the crew-to-passenger ratio on a cruise ship, except that all the classr oom aides and assistants now have a vested inter est in the annual school budget vote. A theory that draws on the new management strategies decided in the K-12 executive suites is partially described in “Losing Our Language”: it says that teachers don’t control their classrooms as they did in the Dick and Jane old days. It seems teachers could very well teach basic reading and math if permitted to do so, but they can’t for the same reason that they aren’t permitted to maintain once-accepted levels of discipline in the classroom. The number of letters and digits to be learned (36) r emains unchanged, but ther e are now ideological mandates which trump the teaching of them.

If you’ve earned your money, paid your bills, and not hurt anyone, frigged if I’m one to car e what you’re spending your money on. If I had riches like a Jeter or Harrison For d, you’re danged right I’d have a mansion. I’d have me a bedr oom bigger than the house I live in now , which is 3,000-square feet—just a shack. So. no, this isn’t a Derek Jeter bashing column. No. I’m a fan. Instead of a Jeter bashing article it’s an article in support of what kind of guy I per ceive Jeter to be—which is a great guy. That’s why I’m curious as to why he didn’t just turn the ball back over to the Lopez boy instead of keeping it and allowing it collect dust in a fancy memorabilia case next to the rest of his career chazzerai (KHA-ze-rye) junk. As cool a guy as Jeter is, he’s seemingly no different from the rest of us crazies. We’ll put value on an object that is worthless over putting all the value on what the worthless object represents.

Guest Viewpoint south Route 103. W ould this major inconvenience divide the town or bring it together? We have been there before. So how has Chester dealt with this dilemma which more than bisected the town, cutting of f access to the high school and businesses south of town from the village gr een in the center with major shops and inns? Early on town officials held special town meetings to explain how the V ermont Department of Transportation planned to replace both key bridges in the same time frame.
Plans for alternate r outes for r esidents, trucks and out-of-town visitors were all outlined. There was the usual discussion and sharing of local concerns, especially why do we have to close both bridges to all traf fic? Of special concern was the impact on the many small businesses along the north-south Route 103 through town that connects to the interstate and cities down country. Additional information meetings were held right up to bridge closings, covering See TWO BRIDGES, page 12

Suspect located in Curtis Auto fire By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com PITTSFORD — The Pittsfor d Fir e Department, along with Proctor and several other fire fighting teams, responded to a fir e alarm at Curtis Auto on U.S. Route 7 in Pittsford at 6:30 a.m., July 29. As fire crews worked to extinguish the fire , the initial investigation and r eport indicated that someone may have broken in to the business, set the pr operty on fire, and stole a vehicle from the lot. The Vermont State Police Arson Unit, as well as several area law enforcement agencies, were dispatched to investigate incident. Investigators have ruled the fire to be a set fire and was done in the course of a bur glary to the building in which keys for vehicle on the lot were stolen. Stolen from the lot was a silver Honda Accord. Through the course of the investigation detectives learned that the a silver Honda sedan was seen speeding away from Curtis Auto driven by an unknown white male. Approximately four hours later , the same vehicle was seen in Rutland City at the People’s United Bank in the city of Rutland. The driver of the vehicle was r eported trying to cash a check fr om Curtis Auto. Troopers wer e alerted, and the suspect, Steven Browne, 26, was apprehended on scene. The vehicle has been confirmed as the vehicle stolen in conjunction with the br eak in, theft and arson at Curtis Auto. State Police subsequently located items within the vehicle that had been stolen from Curtis Auto. Detectives arr ested Br owne for violation of conditions of release. It is expected the multiple additional char ges will be forthcoming against Browne in the near futur e, as the investigation continues. Authorities from both the Vermont State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms have been working to identify the connections between Br owne and the fire at Curtis Auto. Anyone with any information er garding this fire is asked to contact the Vermont Arson Tip Award Program (VATAP) at 1-800-32-ARSON.

Meet another Vermont monster The Main Street Museum “Big Conn” display and a sketch of the 1994 remains found in the Connecticut River in Vermont. The remains were displayed at the Tunbridge World's Fair in 1998. Sketch by Scott Mardis

RUTLAND — They often go without fanfar e or praise, and are usually thr ust in the spotlight only after making a human error. But let's not forget that yes, umpires, referees and game of ficials are people too! All kidding aside, however, there is a growing concern over a potential shortage of high school game officials throughout Vermont. Having c overed l ocal s ports i n S outhern Vermont a nd New Hampshire since 2004, this sports writer has certainly started to notice not only the rising average ages of current officials, but also the fewer number of younger folks officiating games. From year to year, I see many of the same "experienced" of ficials at games, while not too many "fr esh faces" appear to be obtaining that valuable game experience. Currently, there seems to be many mor e officials in their 40s, 50s, 60s and even their 70s, then there are officials under the age of 40, which could become an alarming situation as the decade moves forward. Richard Long is a North Walpole, N.H.-native and has been calling games for many years. Long has been officiating various varsity athletics since 1982 in both V ermont and New Hampshir e. Since 1984, he has been a member of the IAABO Vermont Bd 105 (International Association of Approved Basketball Of ficials) and past member of IAABO NH Bd 32 and a NH women's basketball official. He has also since 1981, been a member , of the Southern Vermont Baseball Umpir es Association and two-time, past President of the group. Long is also a of the Vermont High School Softball Umpires Association, and President-elect of that group. He also referees middle school and junior varsity soccer. "I have been an umpire and referee since I was a kid," Long said in a recent interview."I volunteered to help umpire Little League games in Bellows Falls, when I was a 13-year-old Babe Ruth League player. I liked it so much that I kept going back time and time again until I was a 'r egular. Then I started refereeing biddy-boy basketball games, and eventually junior high, fr eshman, junior varsity and varsity high school games after college in the late 1970s." Long, like many officials in previous decades, gave their time to the games because of their love of sports… it certainly wasn't for the money . "I may have gotten into it out of chance," Long said. "But also for a desire to stay in the game after my playing days and because I was brought up by my parents to believe that we need to give back to our community." So why does there seem to be less and less young men and women becoming of ficials? "I think you pr obably have to look at our society. We all seem to be living busier and busier lives," Long suggested. "Off iciating takes a very stro ng commitment to the game, you don't just wake up one day and decide to become an official. "You need to learn the mechanics, know the rules, commit to your fellow officials, the teams and leagues you are associated with. It also takes a very big sacrifice fr om not only you, but also your family and your employer as well." Another reason for the shortage of umpir es and officials is simply the fact that are more sports and leagues than ever before. Therefore, more sports means there are more parents that are coaching and more travelling commitments as a parent, which leaves less time for people to become umpir es and referees. "There was a time when most of the officials were teachers or folks who wer e self-employed, folks who got out of work by 3 p.m. and were willing to travel to officiate. This is no longer the case. Also, when it comes to your work, at one time you wouldn't hesitate to ask the boss to let you out of work early to go work a game," Long added. "But with the economy the way it is today, you simply can't afford to ask for the time of f because ther e ar e a lot of people that need jobs and few of us can afford to be unemployed." Additionally, fewer people ar e willing to travel 45 minutes to an hour to go work a game, spend some three hours at the game then travel home, all for a $75 game fee. Never mind the simple fact that an of ficial must have thicker skin than most, as fans, parents, players and coaches for the most part are great but not always. As a result of all these factors, we have fewer and fewer folks getting into of ficiating, especially at the high school level. However, the hope here is that moving forward, more people will begin to r e-discover their love for sports and want to find a way to be involved in their favorite games, after they're playing days are over. In this r egard, of ficiating is the perfect way to not only stay connected to sports, but to also get more physically fit and of course, give back to the community.

Miglorie from page 1 (psychology) degree with a variety of tracks leading to pr ofessional licensur e, and the Master of Business Administration degr ee. The initiative of which Miglorie is most proud is the development of the STEPS program, a special pr ogram for Vermont foster youth that enables them to secur e a college education at CSJ. The pr ogram is unique in New England. Over the course of Miglorie’s pr esidency, he has radically transformed CSJ’s campus. He oversaw the construction of a second-story addition to St. Joseph Hall which added an additional 15,000 sq. ft. to the academic building. He added a new athletic center, a new student center and a new library to the campus as part of a major building campaign. Most r ecently, Miglor e dir ected a major renovated the college’s two r esidence halls to improve their energy efficiency. Miglorie negotiated the acquisition of the Clementwood estate fr om the Sisters of St. Joseph. This purchase added 27 acres to the campus along with six buildings, the most notable of which is “Clementwood”, a mansion built by Charles Clement in 1863 which
is now listed on the national historic r egister. Under Miglorie’s dir ection Clementwoodwas completely r enovated and brought back to its 19th-century era appearance. Miglorie operated the college with a balanced budget. He has built an institutional advancement pr ogram that has r esulted in two capital campaigns and an annual fund program that has grown over the years. He established an endowment fund which is now approaching $5 million. The college’s long-term debt has been r educed to $2.6 million and is secur ed at the rate of 2.58 per cent for the r emainder of its term. Miglorie is unique among Vermont college presidents on two counts: He is one of the longest seated presidents of a college in Vermont, New England, and the United States. Throughout his long tenur e as an administrator, he has continued to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level. On June 30, 2012, Miglorie will have served the college in various capacities for 41 years. The college will launch a national sear ch to find Miglorie’s successor with a goal of installing a new pr esident by the end of June 2012.
