Take One

By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — Rutland residents love their intown sports rivalries, especially in high school football and basketball. Along with Rutland High School, MSJ-Mt. St. Joseph Academy—the city’s only parochial high school—makes up the Marble City’s dynamic duo of sport. That’s why it was big news when Andrew Costello, secretary of the Rutland Catholic Schools Board, and Principal Sandra Wilkes were on hand when Jeff Cassarino was named the new head coach of basketball last week. Cassarino took over MSJ’s downsized football program last year, so it was a bit of surprise to hear he had been appointed the head coach of the MSJ varsity boys’ basketball team. But from all accounts, Cassarino is the right man for the job. Cassarino’s pick calls to mind MSJ’s legendary Coach Barry Brannon who led multiple sports to state championships. Cassarino inherits a winning tradition at MSJ. He takes over the Green Wave program that won the Division II state championship earlier this year; it has consistently ranked as one of the top teams in Vermont—regardless of division. “Through sports, I firmly believe studentathletes can, and do, learn valuable life lessons,” Cassarino said in a news statement. I want our students to work to excel in the classroom and be leaders in the school.” Cassarino, a Rutland native, has a winning coaching resume. He has command of the whole field of secondary school athletics including football, basketball, and baseball. See CASSARINO, page 9

Arson, theft reported at Mt. Holly By Lou Varricchio MT. HOLLY — Cindy Kleeman, 58, of Bradford, N.H., reported that a home she owns, located at 5456 Route 155 in Mt. Holly, was burglarized and a fire set inside sometime on Aug. 24. The fire was no longer burning when Kleeman entered the house, but Mt. Holly Fire Department volunteers responded as a precautionary measure to ensure that the fire was extinguished. No injuries were reported. Det. Sgt. Michael Manley from the Vermont State Police Fire Investigation Unit reported that he is working with an investigator from the Vermont Department Fire Safety as part of a fire origin and cause investigation.

Costly, controversial Middlebury rail spur on hold By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — A costly Middlebury rail spur project that was opposed by neighbors is on hold, according to an Omya official. Omya Florence plant manager Jim Stewart said the $32 million public-private project, which was supposed to reduce Route 7 truck traffic between the foreign-owned company’s open-pit Middlebury calcium carbonate mine and its processing plant in Florence, is on hold indefinitely. Stewart blamed the bad economy on the deci-

sion. “It’s going to lie dormant for now," Stewart told news reporters. “I don't believe we can economically go for it.” The project increased in size and scope over the years including a massive, 2,050-foot trestle spanning the Otter Creek and Creek Road and a multi-acre ore handling facility that would have negatively impacted residents in the vicinity. Brandon merchants and residents pushed for the project, weary of the Omya truck fleet driving through town in a daily basis, while Middlebury neighbors, that would have been affected by the

rail spur, opposed it. “This is very good news for all us local residents,” said Michael J. Lobner, III, a long-time renter living on Halladay Road. “Downtown Brandon’s problem was just being shifted to residents of Middlebury to deal with; we would have had to bear the burden of the rail noise and locomotive diesel pollution. This thing better be dead for good now.” The project idea was first proposed in 1991 at $7.5 million, but the cost of the spur increased as the years and environmental studies mounted.

Donovan concedes in attorney general primary race By Lou Varricchio MIDDLEBURY — Rising Vermont liberal Democrat, and big labor friend, candidate T.J. Donovan of Chittenden County conceded the Democratic primary race for attorney general to incumbent Attorney General William Sorrell (D) Aug. 29. Sorrell, who describes himself as a corporate “giant killer”, won by approximately 600 votes in the hotly contested 2012 primary race. Donovan said he will campaign for Sorrell’s reelection in November. Sorrell will face long-time Vermont resident and Republican Jack McMullen. In 2004, McMullen was the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from Vermont. He is a Navy veteran who served on the staff of Admiral Rickover overseeing the retrofit of advanced technology reactors into the Navy’s nuclear fleet.

I am busy settling into life at RCHS and I am a bit embarrassed to hear that people think I am an older dog because of my weight. I can’t help it, I just ate what I was given but I do look forward to feeling better and being more active when I lose the 10-15 pounds that has been recommended. My life to date has been pretty quiet, living with just one older person, but they did say that I love to “get lovings” and also enjoy children so I should fit well into a variety of homes.

I’ve been around the block a few times and I’m surprised to be in a shelter at this stage of the game but you gotta play the hand you were dealt. I’ve lived with other dogs and am easy-going in that respect so wouldn’t mind a multi-dog home and I’m very lazy and laid-back in the house. For several years I’ve suffered from cluster seizures and am on medication that I have to take twice daily. he medication is not expensive but periodically my blood work has to be checked to make sure the levels are okay.

Green Mt. Club offers tips for hiking with dogs New Green Mt. Club video

By Lou Varricchio

A buck each for Springfield schools SPRINGFIELD—Springfield Selectman David Yesman said he would buy two local schools—the Park Street School and the East School, located on Summer Street—for $1 each. The two elementary schools were closed in 2010. Only the Park Street School building has been used by the district administration as temporary offices. In 2010, Springfield residents decided that both aging school buildings should be sold rather than putting more taxpayer funds into maintaining them. The local school district was consolidated as a result of the decision. Selectboard Chairwoman Kristi Morris delayed a decision on the proposed sale. She said the board was not properly prepared to discuss such a sale at the Aug. 28 meeting. A meeting will be scheduled at a later date to determine the fate of the two buildings and Yesman’s offer.

Rutland voters pass tax incentive RUTLAND — City of Rutland voters were on the side of business when they approved a new tax stabilization plan which, its supporters claim, will boost economic growth by helping new and expanding business create local jobs. The policy, which was put on the ballot by action of the Board of Aldermen, was approved in a landslide vote, 624-176, Aug. 28. Now city policy, the stabilization plan will aid any business for up to 10 years.

The policy will support business that make “ financial investment in their facility and/or machinery and equipment, thus creating new jobs within the city.”

MIDDLEBURY — If you’re an avid trekker in Vermont, you’ve likely noticed the increase in hikers and their dogs on trails around the Green and Taconic mountains. The trend is likely to continue and now Vermont’s Green Mountain Club, one of the nation’s oldest hiking and trail conservation clubs, has issued guidelines on how to take dogs in the backcountry. The Green Mountain Club just released a four-part educational video series with expert advice. The series, titled “Hiking with Dogs” was produced in Vermont. “For people who have been thinking about bringing their dog with them when hiking, we provide a lot of helpful information to get them started,” said Richard Windish, former Green Mountain Club president. He hosts the new video series along with a long-time trail companion—a dog named Jack. “The videos also have plenty of tips for people who have some experience hiking with a dog, but would like to get into more advanced aspects of it, such as staying at Long Trail shelters overnight, and trail etiquette for dogs and dog owners,” Windish said. Most of Windish’s basic tips are no brainers—such as what to bring on a day hike and when to leash a dog—but where the videos become important to dog-owners is when it discusses animal health on the trail. Windish also provides good ideas on accommodating a pooch on extended backpacking trips. Included on the GMC videos are interviews with veterinarian Paul Alfarone of Bear Swamp Veterinary Service, dogtrainer Kasandra Fleury of the Central Vermont Humane Society, and Grant Gunther of the Outdoor Gear Exchange. “We also talked with several Green Mountain Club care-

From the editor

Will job creation be Job 1?


ow that Randy Brock has won the Vermont Republican primary—and is the official GOP nominee for governor—it’s time for a gubernatorial candidate debate. But the debate shouldn’t be just between Shumlin and Brock. This year, voters have a lot of candidates to consider for governor. Regarding my dream gubernatorial debate, I’d like to see what specific plans incumbent Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) has for creating more wealth in Vermont—and by wealth creation, I mean more of the kind that I can keep in my wallet, and not the kind that is direct deposited to state coffers. Even with a stagnant, dare I say lousy, job market in the state, Gov. Shumlin seems to be taking a cue from the current man in the White House; he doesn’t have mainstream business experience and he doesn’t have a clue about how to create real jobs—and those that offer more than just lateral movement for employees. Aside from the governor ’s limited success of attracting a few green jobs, what happened to those 2009 plans for jobs in electronics, aerospace, and bioscience? In the midst of the morning flurry following the Vermont primary last week, Jack Lindley, chairman of the Vermont Republican Party and a local businessman, had some tough-love words for the governor. “It seems that common sense has been missing from Gov. Shumlin’s administration,” Lindley said. “Ignoring job creation, which should be the number one issue for the state, the governor has spent all of his political capital on forcing a ‘single payer ’ healthcare scheme on us.” In addition to the governor ’s obsession with top-down, state-run health care plans—all in the midst of an anemic economy that needs some health care of its own—he is now interested in spending more time than NORML with the legalize marijuana crowd, notably State Sen. Philip Baruth (D). “We know that even with lots of money from the federal government, a whopping tax hike is likely,” Lindley told party faithful following Brock’s election win last week. “Skyrocketing taxes means fewer jobs, fewer businesses, and more people leaving Vermont in search of better opportunities elsewhere.” Even with the opposition scolding the governor ’s poor job-creation performance record, what can voters do about the mess our state is in 2012? How do we stop job killing tax increases that are driving people out of Vermont? If the governor and his party don’t change their game plan, then it’s time to change the governor and virtual one-party rule in Montpelier. This year, Vermont voters have a choice for governor. It’s ot just Democrat and Republican. Let’s hear what all the other candidate’s plan to do to remove our tax albatross. In addition to incumbent candidate Gov. Shumlin, there’s Randy Brock (Republican), Martha Abbott (Progressive), Cris Ericson (U.S. Marijuana Party), and Emily Peyton (Independent). Mainstream and moonbat choices, you say? Maybe, but I’d still like to hear what these men and women will do to change the course of state. Let’s have a big, raucous debate with each candidate outlining his/her plans to get the Green Mountain State back on track. Sure, democracy is messy. And when it comes to intractable Montpelier, the more the merrier. Louis Varricchio

Who do we fear most?


ver the next two weeks we’ll have the opportunity to hear the plans both presidential nominees and their respective parties have for our nation. As the accusations, truth twisting spin and political posturing takes place we can only hope that those who are undecided can find the information they need to reach a wise decision. One not reached from a position of fear, anger nor built on lies, but instead one made from sound facts and realistic hopes. This nation has been blessed over time with the right leadership at just the right time to guide the country through very difficult times. We can only hope that once again the nation can come together and get behind a plan that begins to turn things around. Certainly in my lifetime I know of no other time as critical as the one we currently face. Our national identity and many of the principles we’ve held closely in the past seem to be brushed aside in favor of self wants. Far too many are treating this election like a sporting event more than making a life altering choice. With so much at stake I wonder what we fear more in the coming election — that the “wrong side” will lead the nation back to security and prosperity receiving all the credit or that the “right side” will unleash all the negatives we heard from the other side and push the nation farther into debt and further into despair? If the contest is going to be about anything meaningful, it should be about how we are going to correct the nation’s finances, which presents a grave danger to American power and prosperity. The bi-partisan Bowles-Simpson plan offered solutions last year, but will either candidate be willing to address the issues in the same bipartisan manner that all Americans and both parties can get behind? The bipartisan commission of 18 members, including six senators and six representatives, tried to address the country's fiscal challenges, but Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan refused to support the majority's findings and President Obama also declined to pursue the suggested policies. If the solution is that radioactive and our current leaders refuse to even touch it what will it take for the nation to come to grips with these issues? Can anyone see a path to resolving these financial issues or will both camps simply retreat to their extreme political bases with neither side giving an inch, thus putting America’s future on the line while they play tug-of-war? David Wessel, a Wall Street Journal columnist, recently released a book titled "Red Ink," a handy new guide to understanding the politics of the federal budget. While nobody loves the cost of gov-

ernment, everybody cherishes the things it specifically does for them. Wessel sums up the politics this way: "These diverse finanDan Alexander cial arrangements have Thoughts from one thing in common: at Behind the Pressline the end of the pipeline is some real American person who is getting a check or a promise. Most are convinced due to their circumstances they deserve the money and/or the promise granted by Uncle Sam." On the other side of the ledger from out of control government spending is the lost income from billions of dollars in tax deductions, exemptions and loopholes, for the rich that they too are convinced they rightfully deserve. Such tax bennies are no easier to do away with than reducing beloved spending programs: Congress and presidents know full well seriously addressing both sides of the ledger — spending and taxes — is the only way to correct the course, but until a true leader steps up and makes a convincing case to the American public that both spending and taxes must be a part of the solution, each side will play to fears and cheers of their immediate constituency and the day of reckoning is pushed farther out into the future. It is for that reason that many people believe the day of reckoning should be addressed now without waiting until the issue is so massive the solutions will be far more costly and painful. With the US debt now nearing $16 trillion and the debt per taxpayer at about $140,000 how much longer can we go on allowing our president and Congress to ignore this crisis? It’s painfully clear neither side can solve the problem alone, but neither is prepared to work together and until that happens, nothing will happen except what we should really be fearing. America has many problems and the national economy, while topping the list, is but one of the hot buttons in this year’s election. So listen closely over the next two weeks and keep an open mind. Discount the mudslinging, ignore the vicious attack ads and listen closely for what you would consider a reasonable solution to break the stalemate. But remember, only when the plan is equally painful to all will there be something of value on the table and my greatest fear, one I hope is unfounded, is that neither side is prepared to go that far.

Parkers celebrate 50 years By Lou Varricchio

Our State Fair is a great state fair By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — What makes the half-century marriage of Robert L. and Bette Parker worth celebrating is their enduring love and willingness to work together for a common goal. The Rutland couple, married in 1962, joined family members to mark the big day a few months ahead of schedule; the couple were married on Dec. 11. At Rutland’s Grace Congregational Church, the Parkers were joined by their five children and their families—Rob Parker, Jr., of Rutland, Robin Helwig of Plattsburgh, N.Y., Lisa Suane of Rutland, Cathy Allen of Felton, Del., and George Parker of Monkton. In addition to their children, the Parkers were joined by 14 grandchildren and four, great grandchildren. At the church, the couple renewed their wedding vows with the Rev. John Weatherhogg presiding. Family and friends joined the couple for a special celebration in the church’s fellowship hall following the ceremony. “We were married Dec. 11, 1962, at the United Church in West Rutland by Rev. Roger Albright,” Bette said, “Bob’s retired now, but he worked as a photo engraver at the Rutland Herald, a designer at Hunt’s Florist, a support staffer at Rutland Mental Health—and 25 years in the press room at Moore Business Forms.” Bette, who is currently working part-time with At Home Senior Care, recalled her career since the couple’s 1962 wedding. “I worked for Kings Department Store, Seward’s Dairy, and even operated a home day care for 34 years,” she noted. What’s the Parkers’ secret to a successful marriage lasting half a century? “Just say ‘yes’. You have to stay together, and love each other—through sickness and health,” Robert said. “I’m not sure that’s a secret.” “Well, we kiss each other every night and also in the morning,” Bette added. “But even more than that—we don’t keep secrets, but we keep one pocketbook for the money. We make compromises, too, and then, we always talk things over. I should say that church, faith , is important; it has been a very big part of our lives and the lives of our children.”

RUTLAND — The Vermont State Fair is underway this week, so there’ still time to see all the attractions. Look for the Green Mountain Outlook’s free, full-color Vermont State Fair guide booklet available at many Rutland-area retailers, convenience stores, and supermarkets. The fair ends the evening of Thursday, Sept. 9. Grandstand performances are listed in the Outlook’s guidebook and on the fair ’s website Here’s a brief overview, by no means complete, of the fair ’s many attractions geared for young and old alike: Midway amusements Carousel: The Carousel, also known as the Merry-Go-Round, allows riders to ride models of different sorts of animals around the base of the ride, under a roof covering it. Castlerock (Scrambler Ride): Up to two riders sit in each of several passenger carriers, and are moved wildly around. Gravitron: The Gravitron spins visitors around in circles faster than on any other ride at the fair. The ride forces passengers outward onto a cushioned wall. Himalaya: The Himalaya is a small, yet fast roller-coaster-type ride in which visitors speed around a track forward and backward. Tilt-A-Whirl: The Tilt-A-Whirl is a ride for children and adults of nearly all ages. On this ride, visitors sit in large passenger carriers as they spin in circles in all directions.

Police cite teen for hosting underage party By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — On Aug. 22, the Vermont State Police issued a report regarding an underage drinking party on Tamarack Lane in Rutland Town. The VSP has issued an update of the earlier report regarding the Aug. 21 incident. Troopers from the VSP Rutland barracks responded to a reported fireworks complaint and a possible assault at 335 Tamarack Ln. in Rutland Town. On the scene, troopers discovered a large amount of vehicles on the property and dozens of underage persons who had been found to be consuming alcohol. Numerous juveniles fled into the woods and many others were detained near the residence. Parents of the juveniles were contacted and were released into the custody of adults. While troopers were attempting to locate many of the juveniles who fled into the woods, an unknown subject threw a rock from the woodline, striking a trooper in the leg. No injuries were sustained from the encounter. A male, who was taken into custody and placed in handcuffs, fled the immediate area and K-9 units from VSP and Rutland City Police Department were deployed to locate the intoxicated subject. The 17-year-old male was located a short time later by a K-9 team and transported to the barracks where he was placed into protective custody. Another party goer, who fled the scene ,cut and injured his leg while running. This individual was treated at the Rutland Regional Medical Center. Several other juveniles who fled into a wooded area reported they had run into a barbed wire fence causing cuts to their arms and legs. Police allege that Christopher Bohlig, 18, of Rutland Town, Vermont hosted the party at his residence. Bohlig was cited for the offense of Criminal Enabling on and processed at the Rutland Barracks. These charges are pending in Rutland Superior Court Criminal Division.


’ve known my best buddy for 35 years. He was 10 years old and I was 15. When my high school band would play a concert for the grade school kids, I’d snatch buddy Eric from class to help set-up my drums. We’ve been tight every since. We’ve never been ticked at each other, no fights. Oddly enough, we even look similar. So similar, that if we go to Burlington to gander at chicks, we make sure to not wear similar clothes; if we did, we’d look like absolute nimrods. We’re both self-employed, which gives one total flexibility over one’s schedules. (Since the Royal wedding I’ve been on a kick of using, “one” instead of “someone” or “somebody”.) So, I’m utilized my flex schedule recently to visit my sister Holly in Albuquerque, N.M. Holly and I spent time in Santa Fe looking at art and blue sky. It was fun. Always good to see my sister who works as a campus director at a college. Like me and my pal Eric, Holly is single. Holly and I are very close, too. If we have the rare argument, it’s not anything lasting more then a few minutes. Eric, a woodsman, just took a two-day jaunt to Maine to rummage around the woods looking for moose sheds. Eric doesn’t plan his scouting trips; he decides to do them and then—boom, bang—he’s off. He lands way up the end of a road he’s hunted for years, 70 miles from the nearest Hannaford supermarket, and 30 miles from the nearest Ma n’ Pa store that he says, is more like a real Ma and Pa’s house— where one can buy cigs and boiled eggs—than a general store. Eric brings hamburgs, hot dogs, a small cook stove, soda, and a tiny heater, and camps in back of his early 2000s model Dodge Durango truck. Eric describes his scavenger hunt for moose sheds with the zeal of a geology grad student on an African safari. He retires at 7:30 p.m. in the rear of his Durango; he falls asleep to the call of nearby loons. Rising at 5:30 a.m., and stepping through the deep Maine wilderness for hours and hours searching for sheds, the only sound he hears

top, Galaxy Girl educates the audience about the stunt tower using a microphone. Las Vegas Magic: Magical illusion show complete with free stage, sound and lights. Petting Zoo: The fair's petting zoo allows visitors to touch and feel animals. These animals include sheep, goats, a bull, and others. Nearby is a camel ride, and horse rides. Rosie's Racing Pigs: Pigs race around a small track to get to a bowl of food. There are three races, each with a different breed of pigs. An announcer talks about the pigs as they race.

when he stops for a bit of lunch is the sound of the wind. Now, sister Holly has two cats. She’s around folks all day at work, but mostly when she’s home, beside black and white Nickie and Natalie, she’s alone. She takes an overnight in Santa Fe every now and then, sometimes with a friend, sometimes alone. I live with my cat Scarlet at road’s end, high up the side of a mountain, in a house with very little space to hang art because of the abundance of windows set through which to view other mountains and many valleys and various critters of land and air. I’m not a woodsman, but I take a daily hike behind my house to the ridge of the mountain, alone, worshiping nature’s many gifts each step of the way. My hikes take and hour or two. I’m not as hardy as Eric in that I’d rather sleep in a comfortable bed then in the back of a rig. Eric, my sister, and I apparently would just as soon sleep alone. I’m often asked, “You don’t have kids? Aren’t you scared you’ll be alone when you get older with no one to take care of you?” No. I’m alone now and not scared. Am I going to change when I’m 75 and start not enjoying living alone? I doubt it. I know a woman with six kids, grandkids numbering in the teens, and a few great grandkids. She’s age 75, widowed, seemingly doing quite well, but if you talk with her it becomes apparent that she’s nearly always feeling very alone, lonesome, depressed, her kids say. I know for a fact that a couple of this woman’s kids and grandkids check in with her a day or two a week—so for her to say she’s always alone isn’t literally accurate. She just feels alone in relation to her hey day when her husband was alive and her kids were all younger and at home. And this she feels with kids, grandkids and great grand kids living all very close to her, many in the same small town. Maybe living alone is good because if you live to be very old, you’re mostly forgotten, or should I say, you’re not normally on the top of everyone’s visiting list? In our youthful and coupled society relevancy has not set a place for you to sit; your kids have kids who have kids who get the attention, so if you end up spending most all of your time alone, if you’re used to being alone, you won’t feel abandoned, lonesome, and in some cases depressed. So, all you folks who’re surrounded by lots of family all the time: don’t you go worrying about Holly, Eric, and I. If we three live out our last years mostly alone, you may want to envy us or at least study us just a touch to see how we’re spending great amounts of time alone. You may want to call on a similar ability in your final years. Maybe it is a good thing to be alone.

MIDDLEBURY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a runner, you probably know all about Nikki Kimball. The famous 41year-old female distance runner has developed her own â&#x20AC;&#x153;personal bestâ&#x20AC;? niche in the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the ultramarathon. An ultramarathonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; or ultra distance runâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;involves running any path longer than 26 miles (42 kilometers). Kimball, a resident of Montana, was in Vermont last week to take on a very ugged ultramarathonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to run the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green Mountain Long Trail and help raise awarenessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and fundsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for Girls on the Run Vermont. Girls on the Run is a non-profit program which encourages girls, grades 3-8, to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Kimball completed Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 272-mile-long Long Trail Aug. 18 in a record five days, seven hours and 42 minutes. She also set the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speed record for the montaine trek. The previous womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Trail record was just over seven days. According to Amy Chang, a promoter of Kimballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long run with Montana Public Television, the athlete ran her first 100-mile race at the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run in 2004, and was the female winner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nikki was the winning

Harvesting, storing fall fruits is no small chore By Dr. Leonard Perry Extension Professor University of Vermont

Harvesting fall fruits at the correct stage, and storing them properly, will result in their longest life and usefulness, often for months. If you find a grower with fall raspberries, or like me grow your own, these are a special treat this time of year. As with the summer raspberries, pick when they easily pull off from the central “core or stem, refrigerate soon if you don’t eat them first. Make sure to wash well, checking for insects that may be enjoying a fall snack as well. They wont keep long, so eat or use in a few days, or freeze them. Rinse well, spread on paper towels or cookie sheets in a freezer, then place loosely into freezer containers. If you place into containers and then freeze the berries, they tend to freeze into one large mass. Don’t rely on color alone when deciding

when grapes are ripe and ready to pick. Growers actually measure sugar content (“brix”) to determine when to pick. You can do this simply by tasting. Grapes store best if picked dry, and if the whitish bloom isn’t rubbed off. Pick whole clusters rather than individual grapes, leaving the stems intact. Harvested this way they’ll store for several weeks in a refrigerator. Many tree fruits ripen in the north in early fall. Fruit should separate from branches easily, with a slight upward twist. Resist the temptation to squeeze and poke fruit with fingernails. If you’re lucky to have a warm enough area to grow peaches—and some orchards in Addison County report success with certain cold hardy peaches—such as ‘Redhaven’ or ‘Reliance’, they’re best ripened on the tree prior to picking. Ripe peaches and the related nectarines (basically a non-fuzzy peach) are fully colored when ripe and somewhat soft. These will store generally for 5 to 6 days if cool, or 3 to 4 days if at room temperature.

Wait to wash them until you’re ready to use. Apples are probably the most popular tree fruit, with many cultivars (cultivated varieties) ripening at various times. Some, such as ‘Baldwin’, ‘Cortland’, ‘McIntosh’, and ‘Northern Spy’ ripen over a fairly short season. If you plan to store apples, use them for cooking, or just need to beat local wildlife to them, pick unripe. Apples are fully ripe when they’ve turned the appropriate color. Ripe apples separate from the tree easily. Just make sure when picking not to damage any of the short stems called “spurs” that will produce next year ’s fruit. If in doubt about ripeness, cut an apple open and look at the flesh and seeds. The flesh of ripe apples is less green, more white, in general. Seeds of ripe apples have turned brown. The best indicator, though, is taste. A ripe apple is crisp, juicy, and sweet (although, of course, the particular flavor will vary with cultivar). Wash apples and store cool soon after picking, unless you want to ripen them at room temperature or are going to use then.

They should last 4 to 6 weeks in a refrigerator. Later cultivars generally store longer than earlier ones. Mid-season ones such as ‘Cortland’ and ‘McIntosh’ will last up to 4 months while later ones, such as the heirlooms ‘Rome’ and ‘Winesap’, often last 5 months or more. Best conditions to store apples are cool (40 degrees F or below but not freezing), with high humidity. Make sure to store fruits away from vegetables, if possible.

Killington marks Irene anniversary with driving tour KILLINGTON — On Aug. 28, 2011, the State of Vermont experienced two phenomena, the flooding and damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene which challenged Vermonters, and the courage and strength of residents that defines the state. Killington, one of the hardest hit areas in the northeast,was cut off by destroyed roads and downed power lines for over two weeks, yet it managed to reopen 19 days later in an inspiring show of small town values and community spirit. To recognize this momentous one-year anniversary, the Town of Killington partnered with locations in Woodstock, Stockbridge, and Pittsfield to create a self-guided driving tour of the region’s hardest-hit locations. Stops along the route were marked with One Year Stronger signage and featured before and after photos, stories, and tales from local heroes. Designated stops included the once-flooded Woodstock Farmers Market, destroyed intersection of Route 4 and River Road in Killington, and the rebuilt covered bridge in Pittsfield. In conjunction with the State of Vermont,

visitors were encouraged to submit their photos along the tour to a website. A photo contest, aimed at spreading Vermont’s mes-

sage of beauty, strength and recovery, is currently underway. “We created the tour to highlight our

strength, resiliency, volunteerism, local heroes, and uniqueness not just in our communities, but as a state,” said Suzie Dundas, director of Vermont Economic Development and Tourism and former communications director for Central Vermont Hurricane relief efforts. “The tour allowed guests to experience what it was like to be here during the hurricane at their own pace, and allowed them to celebrate our strength, or reflect independently on the work and recovery still ongoing.” The tour took place Sept. 3, and started at the Ramshead Base Lodge at Killington Resort; visitors picked up a map and pamphlet of the sites along the route. Megan Smith, commissioner of Vermont Tourism and Marketing, said “We think this tour was a great way for anyone who heard about Killington locally, nationally, or had a special tie to Vermont to come and experience a bit of what it was like in the days and weeks following Irene, and be inspired and amazed at the strength of the Vermonters who came together to get our state back on its feet so quickly.” Louis Varricchio contributed to this report.
