The three-story building will contain state-of-the-art environmental and allied-health science labs, classrooms and offices. See CCV, page 2

Lt. Gov. Scott becomes newspaper salesman for a day By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — Vermont Lt. Gov. Phil Scott brushed up on his salesmanship Aug. 16 when he spent a day visiting the office of Denton Publications-New Market Press, publisher of the Addison Eagle and Green Mountain Outlook community newspapers. Scott visited the staff of the newspapers as part of his statewide Everyday Job Initiative. He has been touring Vermont and working as a “temp” in a variety of small business. He was in Addison County last in 2010 when he worked as a lunch server at Helen Porter Nursing Home in Middlebury. The initiative is a way for him

to better understand the challenges facing Vermont businesses. Scott’s visit to the newspaper office resulted after the managing editor invited him to become a salesperson for a day as part of his Everyday Jobs project. “We all hear about how difficult it is for print publications right now, but it was evident to me— from visiting the Denton Publications-New Market Press newspaper office in Middlebury and from talking to the advertisers we visited—that the newspaper is still very relevant and still has a strong place in the community,” Scott said. “It was also nice to see a variety of businesses, many of which I didn’t know were there.

WALLINGFORD — An ex-Wallingford firefighter will serve a six month sentence at home for setting grass fires on federal land in Vermont. U.S. District Court Judge Christina Reiss said the crime of Matthew D. Burnham, 22, of Wallingford, was not of the nature for prison time. Burnham set more than 20 grass fires around Wallingford in 2008. He pleaded guilty in court last week. “I’m sorry for what I did... I’ve grown up a lot over the last three years...,” he told Judge Reiss. The U.S. government had hoped for a jail sentence for Burnham and five other Wallingford firefighter. Only Burnham and exfirefighter Charles Woods had faced criminal charge. Under a judge’s ruling, Woods is required to pay a $2,000 fine and perform over 100 hours of community service. The Wallingford arson scandal has deeply affected the community and created mistrust in its firefighting organization. “This is a serious crime and a foolish crime committed by those who were expected to protect the public,” Reiss said during her ruling. Reiss said there was no indication that Burnham was a pyromaniac. He apparently started the fires under peer pressure from the other firefighters. U.S. Assistant Attorney Anika Frostick said it is unclear how the government will proceed with the Wallingford case now that Reiss ruled on Burnham’s charges.

Green Mountain Outlook - 3

Coming to a farm near you - robots

Be Sure To Say You Saw Their Ad In The Green Mountain Outlook! Thanks!

By Lou Varricchio ORWELL — The robot revolution in Vermont farming will not be televised. Instead, it will quietly transform dairy operations as we know it today. The robot revolution is actually an electronic revolution which includes everything from iPad farm apps to automated, self-directing tractors—part of an experimental effort by heavy equipment maker John Deere—and the use of realtime, remote-sensing NASA satellite imagery (of acreage moisture and crop infestation) for farmers to peruse. Here in Vermont, the robot revolution is occurring in the barn with the latest generation of so-called robot milkers. Last week, the 143-year-old Hall and Breen Organic Farm in Orwell—among the oldest farms in Vermont—opened its doors to farmers from Addison and Rutland counties to see demonstrations of its twin high-tech robomilkers called the Lely Astronaut, the brand name for the automated milking units. The units replace the need for hiring some farm hands. The farm started using the robots in January, but owners Hall and Breen waited until now to unveil their family secret and display all the data collected so far. (As an aside, we’re not quite sure what an “astronaut” has to do with robot milking, but the Space Age concept is never-the-less revolutionary.) The milkers, built by Dutch-owned Lely Group, are silent giants. Each huge, distinctive red unit—which look like Star Trek sci-fi shuttlecraft—includes tubing, circuitry, sensors, brushes, displays, software, and other gizmos only a computer geek could appreciate. The units, each about the size of two passenger vans combined, automatically milk cows, 24/7, as needed. Each of Hall-Breen’s 150 or so cows has an electronic transponder built into its collar, so the robots can sense each individual cow as she approaches the milker. Other electronic sensors are located inside the arm of the robot, just beside where the utter is placed. During milking, cow’s milk is continuously monitored per quarter, providing data on mastitis, fat, and lactose. Every cow has its own database, so the Lely Astronaut probably knows more about each individual cow than the farmer—and its electronic brain never forgets. Robots on a dairy farm allow farmers, like Hall and Breen, to manage milk quality and cow health as well as respond if a problem or health issue appears. “The Astronaut brushes remove dirt and manure, even if it sticks,” said Paul Goden of Enosburg Falls, distributor of the Lely Astronaut in Vermont. ”It is the only milking robot that cleans the teat area where teat cups can touch as well as the bottom udder close to the teat.” Goden said the tactile touch of the robot provide stimulation which is vital to the cow’s release of the hormone oxytocin. According to Orwell Fire Chief and Hall-Breen farm patriarch Louie Hall, 67, the robot workers never complain. And at a cost of $140,000 per unit, the cleanliness and efficiency of the robots will mean a quick return on investment.

“With the Lely Astronaut, there’s no human intervention required,” he said. “This is far better than a parlor-style milker. They are energy efficient and the computerized systems let us create a database on the herd.” For Hall’s co-owner daughter Jennifer Breen, the savings mean not having to get up at 4 a.m. or even earlier every day. “The robots do present a change for the farming lifestyle,” Breen said. “I discovered I was able to leave the farm to see my child’s school games. Before the robots, I just couldn’t do that. You had to be on the farm around the clock to keep an eye on things. So, with the Lely Astronauts at work I get more time to spend with my husband and kids. In that sense, it’s very revolutionary.” While area farmers gathered to see the Lely Astronauts in action, Goden’s staffers served up free hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and—you guessed it—organic milk. They were onhand to answer questions, too, and educate curious farmers about the labor-saving units. Currently, according to Goden, only a few farms in Vermont are taking the baby steps required to be a part of the farm-robot revolution—11 Lely milking robots work are quietly working at four farms in the state. Two more farms, one in Richmond and the other in Morrisville, will “go robot” soon. Today’s technological revolution may not be televised, but dairy farming in Vermont will never be the same.

Biltmore in the Green Mountains

From the Editor

Price of freedom of information


August 24, 2011

s a U.S. citizen, you have the right to see and review any government record that is not classified for national security reasons. All you have to do is file a Freedom of Information Act request. The filing part of FOIA is easy—the rest is a big question mark. When you file a FOIA request, you can literally watch the government’s wheels begin to grind to a stop. While you may have a legal right to view a government document, the government— state or federal—can take its grand old time in responding. Delays in filling FOIA requests may be attributed to bureaucracy and politics—but you’ll never know. Such FOIA request responses can days or years. I personally learned of one FOIA request—and there are thousands like it—that has been waiting 15 years for a response. Something is very wrong in how our government—under law—treats a citizen’s request to seek the truth. FOIA had bi-partisan support in the 1960s and U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson (D) finally signed it into law on July 4, 1966 (it was rewritten in 1974 to include the Privacy Act and then amended in 1996, 2002 and 2007). Today, I am not sure if it’s exactly the way the 1966 Congress had envisioned, it and I am not even sure why it has been tinkered with so often. Now the so-called Faster FOIA proposal is ready for Congress to review, but legislators are just as slow as dealing with it as are the government’s responses to thousands of FOIA requests. Both political parties have been playing politics with the FOIA, but now the Faster FOIA may get a needed boost before the 2012 election. The lawmakers behind the new Faster FOIA are Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) and Texas U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R). It’s rare when a liberal (Leahy) and a conservative (Cronyn) can agree on anything, let alone work together to craft legislation, but both senators agree that freedom means not only the pursuit of happiness, it also means the pursuit of truth. According to Cronyn, “Citizens have a

fundamental right to know what their government is doing and political operatives should not be interfering with legitimate requests by citizens and journalists under the Freedom of Information Act.” When Congress reconvenes in a few weeks, the Leahy-Cronyn Faster FOIA will be reintroduced to the Congress. It’s hard to imagine the House’s Republican majority in rejecting the measure. Most Democrats appear on board. According to a recent editorial in the Battle Creek (Mich.) Inquirer, “The bill seeks to create an advisory panel that would examine the reasons behind the backlog in FOIA requests and recommend to Congress how the process can be expedited. Whether the legislation will actually result in more timely replies to FOIA requests is unknown, but at least it will give lawmakers a little more leverage in pushing agencies to respond.” In the case of FOIA to date, the price of freedom of information doesn’t come cheap—it costs Uncle Sam nearly $500 million every year to process FOIA requests. However, now is not the time to use budgetslashing as an excuse to abandon the democratic principles of FOIA. Cronyn gives the best reason for assuring timely FOIA requests before the 2012 election: “I am deeply disturbed that Obama administration political operatives have filtered FOIA requests based on the political or professional affiliation of those requesting the transparency guaranteed to our citizens under federal law. And I commend the House panel for doing its job of oversight of the executive branch, and I hope they get to the bottom of these allegations.” On a state level, Vermont is making some progress in providing access to information. Now Vermont citizens can find out the names of vendors selling goods and services to state government and the amounts of their transactions. The State of Vermont Transparency site——allows viewers to see over 121,000 vendor transactions. The cost to citizens to see the data: zero. Lou Varricchio

any years ago in Vermont, the Webbs (in Shelburne) and Billings (in Woodstock) chose to buy in, and play, country gentlemen on lands formerly farmed by folks ill-positioned to resist a buyout. In mid-scale, it happened at innumerable times and places up and down the Appalachia (yes, Vermont is technically a part of Appalachia). Towards the upper end of the wealth scale, there’s the Reynolds’ Tanglewood on the once-small-farm outskirts of Winston-Salem, N.C., and, of course, at the apex of such ventures, there’s the once-nearcounty-size Biltmore Estate in the hills of western North Carolina. It turned out that even the vast late 19th century rail fortunes of the Vanderbilts were not enough to subsidize such a magnificent trust-funder playground. Thus, in the early 20th century, most of the land was sold or gifted off; the French chateau version of Potemkin Village with an agriculturaltheme-park was converted to just enough profitable mini-enterprise to replace red ink with black on the balance sheets. The Biltmore has been doing just fine ever since. Right now the day-visitor ’s ticket costs $59. Rhetorical question: has the high-cost-ofentry-and-stay Biltmore been the model for the contemporary Gentry-Left restructuring of the Vermont economy—a new Biltmore in the Green Mountains? Vermont is no exception to the general rule that those who are gentrified out of their houses and businesses—and off their land by government or the evil rich—don’t like it and say so. The Dutch truck-gardeners of mid-Manhattan in the mid 19th century didn’t like being run off at bayonet point for the creation of Central Park (it wasn’t even shown on the infamous 1811 Manhattan street-grid plan). Wikipedia notes that it wasn’t envisioned by the planners until 1853. The hill-farmers of the mid Appalachians were similarly run off by government for the creation of the Blue Ridge Parkway (for their motoring betters) during the Depression

and didn’t like it either. When the Interstate Highway System was pushed through Vermont in the early 1960s, there were similar stories of futile landowner resistance—at the same time that “Farm for Sale $20 per Acre” signs could be seen up and down Route 100. The Vanderbilts, it’s safe to guess, bought out the original 125,000 Biltmore acres from some 4,000 smallscale hill farmers at even lesser acreage values in the 1880s. But the next, trustfunder Vanderbilt generation couldn’t keep it; unlike the government, the family couldn’t run annual budget deficits. By 1914 the first 85,000 acres were sold off—to the feds. Presently the Biltmore has shrunk to a mere 8,000 acres, but it is run at a profit. In Vermont the passive sector of the economy isn’t yet the largest, but it’s the fastestgrowing. Dairy farms (once there were more cows than people—back then the majority of the latter liked it that way) are below a thousand. This year, a nationwide recession year, Vermont governance posted a genteel little surplus of $40 million, one of only a handful of states to do so. In contrast, there’s been a series of non-trust-funder-oriented governances, from California’s Orange County in 1994 to the big city of Birmingham, Ala., and the little city of Central Falls, R.I., which went or are going bankrupt this year for the usual governance/management misjudgment reasons. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports on recent widespread unemployment growth, too: US average, 9.2 percent, Vermont average, 5.5 percent. No space here for the philosophical aspects of a state seeking to be dependent on income-flows from wealth created earlier and elsewhere, from which a current generation can be supported without effort, in a passive-income society which must always be, by definition, not self-sufficient and not self-sustainable. You decide. Former Vermonter Martin Harris now lives in Tennessee.

The Logger deals with gettin’ old N

othing to enlighten, amuse, provoke thought, or repulse in this week’s column. I’ll just say that I appreciated every one of the relatively large number of responses I received on a column I did a few weeks ago— about my decision to skip a routine 50-year-old-guy colonoscopy. Of the e-mail and “live” on-the-street and the Addison County Fair comments I received, I’d say half were pro, the other half con/against, my decision. I didn’t do a controlled survey, but the 50/50 result is from a loosey goosey guesstimate on my part. I figure lots of folks with opinions didn’t chime in and I wouldn’t venture a guess as to which side those folks are weighted toward. I’m just saying I’m flattered by the response. It figures a health-themed column would perk your interest, especially one that deals directly with Cancer—the “Big C” as we used to call it in the late 1960s (the big D was divorce, the big E is the fair in Mass., and the first letter on the eye chart—should I continue with this nonsense?) Anyhow, both general and cancer health awareness is ever growing, which is great, great, great. I trust a byproduct of more awareness is the number of us all pitching in time and money for research and comforting those dealing with poor health. I’ve not been able to respond to you all (a couple e-mails I returned bounced back), so I’ll use this space to say I’ll heed everyone of the bits of advise I got. For those who told me I’m fine without one, I’ll say I’m not going to get a colonoscopy, yet. For those who told me I should get one, I’ll say I’m going to get one, just not yet. Why wait? Ah, well, the answers to that question are in the original column. I just feel like I want to wait a bit and I feel I’m in the clear

with that choice. I don’t feel 50 is the do-all age, more than 48 or 53 are. I basically still feel like a young guy, invincible; and though I’d tell any young guy to beware of that feeling, I myself take solace in still feeling invincible at this age. Friggin’ makes no sense what I’m saying, does it? However, you might remember a two-part column I did on my teeth. It was full of praise and wonder for them. I bragged about how my teeth look, but mostly went on about how they perform, which is, perfectly, for 50 years. Since those columns, a little more than a month long ago, I’ve lost a part of a lower molar. Yup, about 20 percent of it, my dentist said. When it happened, the affected area felt odd, but it wasn’t sensitive or sharp. But of course I alerted my dentist and he strongly suggested, after a thorough look-see, that I get a crown. He said he could fill it, but said that would only serve the tooth to and end that is similar to all the fixes our government leaders make—temporary. I opted 100 percent for the crown. No problem, my dentist said, it’ll be like new and should stay that way ‘til I kick. So, here I was all about how my teeth were way above par, with nothing more than a few cavities filled through 50 years, when all of a sudden, ping, oops, busted. I’ll get a colonoscopy, maybe because of the comments I got from folks saying I should. Or maybe I’ll get it because my tooth breaking is to me a small sign time is passing along, and that I should no longer trust the feeling of invincibility I have. Maybe because it’s the smart thing to do. I’ll get one, just not right off. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly. Reach him at

Rep. Peter Welch conducts energy audit in W. Rutland By Lou Varricchio WEST RUTLAND — In an effort to highlight the value of investments in energy efficiency, Rep. Peter Welch (D) participated in an energy efficiency audit at a West Rutland home recently. The audit is the first step in a coordinated improvement package that helps homeowners in Rutland County make their homes more energy efficient, saves money, and puts local contractors to work. The program is being implemented by NeighborWorks of Western Vermont, which was awarded a $4.5 million grant last year. The funding was secured by the Vermont congressional delegation through a national energy efficiency program authored by Sen. Bernie Sanders. “Investments in energy efficiency like this Rutland program result in win-win-win opportunities: Good jobs are created for out-of-work local contractors and for American companies making energy-saving products. Families save money that can be better spent meeting other pressing needs. And the environment is improved by minimizing energy use.” The grant awarded to NeighborWorks will allow the organization to serve up to 40 percent of eligible households in Rutland County—7,300 customers altogether—with home visits on ways to lower energy costs.

Police Beat

Teens charged in Pittsford assault, theft of guns By Lou Varricchio PITTSFORD — On Aug. 8, Michael Seagren, 19, and Brenden Fisk, 18, broke into a residence on Sangamon Road in Pittsford. Once inside, a 15-year-old occupant of the residence was assaulted and bound with electrical tape. Fisk and Seagren stole electronics and guns from the residence. Detectives with the Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation were contacted to investigate this incident. Upon investigation, Seagren and Fisk were identified as suspects. Subsequently on Aug. 10, Seagren and Fisk were apprehended in Rutland City, while inside of a vehicle that had been reported stolen from Fair Haven on Aug. 6. Both suspects were charged with burglary into an occupied dwelling, unlawful restraint, and possession of stolen property. Fisk was also charged with simple assault. Both were lodged at Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility for a lack of $25,000 bail and appeared in Rutland Criminal Court on Aug. 11.

New BRAM elevator project is a team effort By Lou Varricchio LUDLOW — It’s been a genuine team effort for officials of the Black River Academy Museum (BRAM) in Ludlow as they pave way the way for the upcoming installation of an elevator in the museum’s new wing. The key leaders of the elevator project are Georgia Brehm, BRAM’s director, and Richard Nye and Anita Alic, members of the museum’s board of directors. Their team effort has smoothed the way to an elevator that will enable all levels of the museum to be accessible to the public even to the physically impaired. According to Ralph Pace of BRAM, Alic, chaired the museum’s Capital Drive Committee. She oversaw the raising of the funds to construct the wing and install the elevator; the project involved five years of planning, fundraising, and designing. “We are elated that we have succeeded in our goal of installing an elevator in our four story building,” Alic said. “At last our museum is now fully open to everyone. We are also very heartened by the support we received from individuals, the Ludlow community, and grants from the Cultural Facilities and the Walter Cerf Foundation.” According to Pace, “Wright Construction Corporation of Mt. Holly was awarded the contract to install the elevator and refinish the interior of the

fire stairs section of the new wing. The final leg of the fund raising for the elevator was celebrated at a June dinner sponsored by BRAM to recognize the collection of over $50,000 in a matching challenge grant by Richard Nye.” In addition, awards from James and Anita Alic, pushed the capital fund raising drive over the top, enabling the award of the elevator installation contract, Pace said.

According to BRAM board members, future museum plans include the construction of an ADA-compliant restroom and more outreach between the museum and local schools and civic groups. “I'm particularly pleased that we will be able to exhibit the area's historical background to students in area schools. It is, after all, their heritage,” Alic said.

Cupboard Challenge’ to fill food shelvers RUTLAND — With record demand for local food assistance, Central Vermont Public Service today announced a 22,000-item goal for the 2011 CVPS Fill the Cupboard Challenge. That is the highest goal ever for the annual food drive, which benefits the Rutland Community Cupboard. “Sadly, the Community Cupboard continues to see record numbers of people in need of assistance, many for the first time,” CVPS spokesman Steve Costello said. “Even though the recession is over, many of our friends and neighbors need help. We hope the Fill the Cupboard Challenge will once again provide significant relief.” Businesses, clubs, schools, sports teams, churches and other organizations are encouraged to register for the challenge, then collect food donations between Sept. 6 and 23 and deliver them to the Rutland Community Cupboard. CVPS will donate 25 cents to the Community Cupboard for every item collected, up to a total of $5,000. The company will also donate $500 in the name of the group that collects the most food. Participants should pre-register for the challenge by calling Chris Adams at 747-5424. In 2010, the Rutland Community Cupboard distributed more than 221,000 items to local residents, serving more than 1,700 families – more than 700 of them seeking assistance at the Cupboard for the first time. In 2011, more than 500 new families have sought assistance for the first time. Participants in the CVPS Fill the Cupboard Challenge can solicit food donations from employees, customers, vendors or others, and are encouraged to conduct their own food

drives as part of the Fill the Cupboard Challenge. “Participants have been extremely creative in the past,” Costello said. “Some have held fundraisers and used the proceeds to buy food. Others have gone door to door, or held drop-off events at their schools or businesses. “Given the growing demand, we want to especially encourage folks who have not participated in the past to join us this year,” Costello said. “This is a great way to build camaraderie among teams and co-workers while doing something for your community as well.” Community Cupboard Manager Sue Bassett said demand remains very high given the economic downturn and high unemployment. “There is a sense of goodwill every time we assist a family, but every new request is evidence of a growing need in our community,” Bassett said. “Without events like this challenge, Pack the Paramount, Stuff-A-Bus and the mail carriers’ drive, many local people would go hungry for lack of resources.”

BRATTLEBORO — Vermont baseball legend and Brattleboro-native Ernie Johnson, Sr., who was a Major League pitcher for the Milwaukee Braves and then a long-time television broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves, recently passed away in Georgia at the age of 87. Johnson was an enormous athletic talent, excelling in baseball, basketball and football in high school, before turning down a basketball scholarship at Yale and a football scholarship at Colgate to sign a professional minor-league contact with the Braves in 1942, at the age of 18. In fact, during his lifetime, Johnson would be inducted into five athletic and broadcasting halls of fame. Born on June 16, 1924 in Brattleboro, Ernest Thorwald Johnson's parents were Swedish immigrants who came to Brattleboro to work for the Estay Organ Company. In fact, Ernie's father, Thorwald, would work at the famed pipe-organ manufacturer for the next 45 years. The youngest of three children, Ernie's first paying job was caddying at the local golf course and although he didn't play Little League baseball in Brattleboro, (the first Little League field was not built until the early 1950s) many locals thought

he earned $125 per month and even got a whopping $100 signing bonus! However, in 1943, his baseball career would be interrupted as Johnson would join the Marines, serving three years in Okinawa during World War II. After the war Ernie would marry Lois, a former cheerleader at Brattleboro High in 1947 and finally made his Major League debut in April of 1950. Following another stint in the minor leagues in 1951, Johnson returned to the Majors in 1952 and over the next six years would lead the Braves (who would become the Milwaukee Braves in 1953) in relief appearances with 175. Johnson was also a significant contributor to the 1957 Braves world championship team with a 7-3 record out of the bullpen with four saves. After his playing days ended in 1959, Ernie's knowledge of the game and unique style landed him his first television job as the host of "Play Ball," a local Milwaukee show, before moving into a commentator role on Braves radio broadcasts in 1962. When the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966, Johnson worked for the Braves front office, organizing the teams original radio broadcast network throughout the south. Ernie remained the radio broadcast voice throughout the 70's and 80's and when Ted Turner created "TBS Superstation" in 1973, he began carrying Braves games and Johnson became a household name for baseball fans across the country. Ernie would broadcast Braves games for over 30 years and would be elected to the Braves Hall of Fame, the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame, both the Georgia Radio and TV Halls of Fame and two years ago, the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. However, there is yet another hall of fame for which Johnson should be inducted. That's right, the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. Considering his combined contributions to the game through broadcasting and as a player, there should be no doubt that a place in the broadcasting wing of the baseball hall be reserved for Mr. Johnson. Not bad for a lanky hoop player from Brattleboro. A couple years ago, this writer had the honor of a phone interview with Mr. Johnson upon his inducted into the Georgia Hall of Fame. He was a gentleman and very humbled by the honor but also said that despite living in the Atlanta area for many years, he still considered Vermont his true home… "God's country" were the words he used to describe the Green Mountain State. The man never forgot where he came from.

he was actually a better hoop player. However, in his senior year at Brattleboro High School Johnson became a dominant pitcher. He finished that season with a 6-2 record, and an amazing 1.09 ERA while averaging a whopping 12 strikeouts a game. In fact, Johnson had perhaps the most dominant threegame stretch of pitching in Vermont school boy history by throw a one-hit shutout against Springfield High School, followed by a one-hit shut out against Bellows Falls, before throwing two-hit shut out against Greenfield, MA in which he struck out an amazing 20 batters. On top of all that, he also batted .409 that season and led the team in RBI's. After high school, Ernie got a major league try out for Casey Stengel's Boston Braves and was offered the unbelievable opportunity to either travel with the big league team to throw batting practice, or to sign a contract and report to the minors. He chose to travel with the team and was all of a sudden, on the road and actually throwing batting practice to Major League hitters. What makes this even more amazing was the fact that before hitting the road with the Braves, Johnson had never even been to a Major League game. A short time later, Johnson signed a minor league deal and went to pitch for the Braves single-A Hartford team where

Scott also remarked on how well the newspaper ’s General Manager Mark Brady and Marketing Consultant Leslie Ross were received at the various businesses they visited. “The advertisers need the newspaper to stay in touch with the community, and they all praised Mark Brady and enjoyed working with him,” he said. “The Middlebury-toRutland-to-Ludlow corridor is a thriving community and The Eagle and the Green Mountain Outlook are definitely a part of that.” During his whirlwind morning sales training session, Scott visited several Denton-New Market newspaper advertisers: New Haven Tire, Champlain Discount Foods, Century 21 Jackman, Linda’s Apparel, Edgewater Arts. G. Stone Motors, Addison Outfitters, Tourterelle Restaurant, Sears-Middlebury, Costello’s Market, and the Sheldon Museum of Vermont History.

thought to take him through the museum,” said Mary Ward Manley, associate director of the museum. “We spoke about the Sheldon and a few of our upcoming programs with Lt. Gov. Scott. He seemed very interested our special exhibit, ‘Vermont Landscapes Lost and Found,’ which features historic photographs of Addison County from the Sheldon's archives paired with photographs of the same place today. I think it was great that he was able to visit the Sheldon and learn more about the wonderful cultural world that Middlebury has to offer,” Manley said. Scott’s busy sales morning included a visit to New Haven Tire, an auto service and tire retailer. “I was very impressed with Lt. Gov. Scott,” said Lisa Campbell, office manager. “I believe more politicians need to visit small businesses to get a better understanding of what’s really going on in today’s economy.” Did the lieutenant governor actually sell any display advertising for the newspaper during his visit? “Well, not really,” said the paper ’s Leslie Ross, “but it sure was fun to have him along. He’s a very down-to-earth gentleman; he cares about Vermont’s business community and the health and vitality of our community newspapers.”
