Dalai Lama makes visit to Vermont By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com

MIDDLEBURY — More than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members gathered on the Middlebury College campus Oct. 12-13 to catch a glimpse of the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is the head monk of the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The 77-yearold Tibetan holy man made two appearances at the college’s Nelson Arena. The popular Buddhist holy man was on campus to present two talks titled, “Finding Common Ground: Ethics for a Whole World”. It was the Buddhist’s third visit to the campus. Born Lhamo Dondrub in 1935, the 14th Dalai Lama was clad in a maroon monk’s robe for most of his visit. He was in good spirits although his English was clipped and difficult to understand; his patient, multilingual translator— Thupten Jinpa—was at his side to help him with difficult American phrases and spiritual pronunciamentoes. On campus, the aging holy man was greeted by college President Ron Liebowitz and Rev. Laurel E. Jordan, the college chaplain. The Dalai Lama also met with U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) Oct. 13. The Nobel Peace Prize winner ’s on-campus message was summed up through one quote repeated during both days of his visit: ”Compassion is a sign of strength, a sign of confidence, and anger is a sign of weakness. Tolerance and forgiveness—these are the signs of strength.” Students applauded when the Dalai Lama— who believes he is an ancient, reincarnated bodhisattva—sported a Middlebury College-logo sun visor during part of his first talk.

Freedom for security

T

he next time you—as a school board member, school administrator, teacher or parent—think that requiring students to wear microchip-embedded I.D. cards is a good idea to control behavior, think about wearing one yourself. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read a recent, somewhat obscure Associated Press story about a school district in Texas that said it wants to require students to wear microchip-embedded I.D. cards. As many as 112 schools in the Northside Independent School District of Texas—affecting as many as 100,000 students—may adopt this outrageous misuse of electronic technology; a technology that’s akin to using a napalm bomb to eradicate a termite mound. What happened to the liberty and freedom so valued by Texans? Remember the Alamo? Good intentioned or not, this is a creepy totalitarian idea that should shock and repel all of us. Last week, students at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School in the liberal City of San Antonio were supposed to show up for class with their photo I.D. cards inserted with radio-frequency identification—or RFID—chips to track their location. A few students objected and their voices were heard; they got the attention of one national news outlet. But why would any educated administrator, conscientious teacher, or semi-engaged parent permit such an Hitlerian method of control? The Texas educators who came up with this idea said it was the only way they could think of that would combat rampant truancy in the district. Of course, the underlying concern isn’t really about why students are skipping school; the real reason for “tagging” these mostly minority students is because ongoing truancy will mean reduced school funding. It always comes down to money. Would you sell your liberty for $2 million? That’s essentially what the Northside Independent School District is doing. It will get $2 million in state funding in exchange for improving its poor student attendance figures with a Gestapo-like ploy. According to the A.P., Andrea Hernandez, a sophomore at John Jay H.S., went a little Howard Beale (the crazy Peter Finch character in the classic movie “Network”); she just wasn’t going to take it anymore.

20940

She said, “educators have ignored my pleas to respect my privacy and told me I can’t participate in school elections if I refuse to comply with the tracking program ... I had a teacher tell me I would not be allowed to vote because I did not have the proper voter I.D.” "I had my old student I.D. card which they originally told us would be good for the entire four years we were in school,” she added. “The teacher said I needed the new I.D. with the chip in order to vote.” San Antonio Deputy School Superintendent Ray Galindo pleaded with his students, as well as their parents, to get with the program. Galindo told parents, “I urge you to accept this solution so that your child’s instructional program will not be affected... There will be consequences for refusal to wear an I.D. card as we begin to move forward with full implementation.” I wonder what Jewish families must have felt like living in Germany in the early years of the 1930s? “Please, wear this Star of David emblem on your blouse so we can track you in our community.” At least Andrea Hernandez’s father wasn’t afraid to get in the faces of school administrators and teachers. Steve Hernandez, a Mexican immigrant, is standing up for American ideals that his fellow citizens should be equally concerned about. “I told (the school board) that ... my daughter and I should not have to give up our constitutional rights to speak out against a program that we feel is wrong,” Andrea’s father told reporters. And while Mr. Hernandez had the courage to speak out as a parent and as a citizen, his action may be too little, too late. The ACLU of Texas has already challenged the school board’s decision to use the tracking system, but the board went ahead with the intrusive program anyway. In the wake of 9/11, we’ve seen many outrageous abuses of personal freedom in the name of “security.” Airport pat downs, witch hunts, computer snooping by employers and government agencies, even social media intrusions, seem to be the emerging paradigm today. To quote Benjamin Franklin, “Any one who will trade freedom for security deserves neither.” Lou Varricchio

U.S. debt remains our darkest cloud

I

n the next month, as the election nears, we’ll continue to hear a great deal about the U.S. debt now more than $16 trillion and climbing. While the nation faces many issues, nothing is more serious to our long-term stability as a sovereign nation than the massive debt we’ve accumulated over the past decade. You may have heard some of these analogies before, but getting a true understanding of the sheer size and scope of this debt will, I hope, cause us each to recognize why this issue must be addressed and why we absolutely must begin reversing the spending habits of this nation. If you spent $1 million a day since the day Jesus was born, 2,012 years ago, you would not have spent $1 trillion but, instead, only about $750 billion. Based on the current U.S. population, every U.S. citizen now owes just under $50,000 each to pay for the debt we’ve racked up over the past few years. In 2011, the World Bank estimated that the Gross World Product—the value of the products worldwide—would be valued at approximately $80.7 trillion. In the United States the Gross National Product is valued at approximately $15.2 trillion. Our debt now exceeds the total one-year production of the entire country. The U.S. government is the world’s biggest client, spending more money — our money — than any other entity in the world. The U.S. government spends one million dollars every eight seconds and currently borrows approximately 40 percent of the money it spends. In the last year alone, our debt rose by $1.2 trillion. In comparison the world’s tenth largest economy is our neighbor to the north, Canada. Their economy is $1.7 trillion. Our neighbor to the south, Mexico, the fourteenth largest economy, is just slightly smaller then our 2011 debt. In fact our debt has now grown so large that there isn’t enough cash in the world to cover the debt, so the federal government has become the major purchaser of the debt, financing it by printing more than $1.6 trillion. I don’t know about you, but those numbers should be scaring the daylights out of us all. But perhaps we’ve all just become so accustomed to borrowing money that as long as the country can continue to borrow we assume that there

must not be a problem. Sure, we hear about the debt and the reduction in the credit rating, but does it really hit Dan Alexander home, or, as they Thoughts from say, is ignorance Behind the Pressline bliss? As citizens of this country, we are all co-signers and ultimately guarantors of this debt that’s been accumulating by Republicans and Democrats alike — we all own a piece of this. Like any household, the more money you owe the more expensive it becomes to borrow money. At some point, regardless of how much interest you are willing to pay, lenders won’t put more of their money at risk knowing you are so far in the hole they’ll never see their money again. When you are spending 40 percent more money than you bring home, how long do you think it will take before someone comes knocking on the door? The candidates both talk about their plans to reduce spending and tackle the debt. Until the American public is willing to step up and demand that debt reduction is priority number one, our national leaders will value election and re-election more than being the disciplined leaders who tell us the hard, cold facts we would rather not hear nor deal with. Democrats want to increase taxes to the rich. Republicans want to see the economy improved so more people can help carry the tax load. We must be willing to face the truth. It will take every man, woman and child to step up and accept their share of this debt. If we fail to recognize this crisis, the interest on the debt alone, estimated at more than $400 billion annually, will outpace our efforts to reduce the principle debt. So as you watch and listen to the upcoming debates, be mindful. I hope you can put your arms around the magnitude of our debt and how those plans may pale in comparison to the true crisis we face and the tremendous burden we are placing on future generations.

College unveils multi-million-dollar research vessel R.V. David Folger named after geology professor

R.V. David Folger: Stats

By Lou Varricchio

newmarketpress@denpubs.com MIDDLEBURY — Capt. Richard Furbush, is the proud skipper of Middlebury College's new multi-million dollar research vessel, the R.V. David Folger. The 48-feet-long vessel, named after college geology professor Dr. David Folger, has an all-electronic bridge. The slick, high-tech, twin-hull vessel was completed in March, in Washington State, and then shipped to the East Coast, via the Panama Canal, via the bulk freighter M/V Panthea. Built by Bellingham, Wash.-based All American Marine, the R.V. David Folger is a near twin to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s R.V. Auk. The Auk operates in the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary off Massachusetts and serves as a multi-purpose federal research vessel used to conserve, protect, and enhance biodiversity and ecological integrity in the sea off New England. Furbush piloted the Folger 60 miles from the Bellingham shipyard where she was built to its transcontinental shipping point in Port Sydney, British Columbia. “We were able to monitor the long trip from the West Coast, through the canal, to Florida, via a webcam,” Furbush said. “After a few days delay, I was lucky to wake up one night and actually see the David Folger being lifted aboard the Grand Orion. It was a

thrill.” After picking up the vessel in Fort Lauderdale, Furbush began a 1,700-mile cruise home via the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, New York Bay, then up the Hudson River to the Champlain Canal. “We arrived in Charlotte on Sept. 9, just in time for three to four days of classes,” he said. Middlebury’s state-of-the-art scientific vessel—with a lion’s share of the academic research work headed up by the college’s Dr.

Tom Manley—is clearly something other colleges, even a few Ivy League institutions, should seriously covet. The new vessel includes a modified hydrofoil for stability and fuel efficiency, onboard student computers with H.D. displays, a cozy galley for meal preparations, sleeping bunks, a sea crane for lifting gear on and off ship, electronic SONAR—Sound Navigation And Ranging—racks for SCUBA equipment, submarine charting equipment, and room for 18 students studying environ-

Fresh off the Bellingham skids—via the Panama Canal—the vessel’s official home port is Point Bay Marina in Charlotte, although she will be wintered over at Shelburne Point Marina, according to Furbush. “Middlebury is known worldwide for its environmental and science learning and inthe-field research,” Furbush said. “The college community is very excited to have this vessel because it offers the best lake access

Ludlow gala raises museum funds By Lou Varricchio

“We had postponed our gala by two months to fully leverage the in-kind donations that we received from local businesses and community members,” Washburn said. “The gala made the difference in the museum’s ability to remain income positive for the second year in a row," Combes-Farr said. The next BRAM fundraising event will be the annual 5K Walk for History. The event starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, at the museum in Ludlow.

LUDLOW — Based on the final report for the Black River Academy Museum's Unique Experiences' Gala held recently at Okemo's Epic Restaurant, the gala proved to be a financial and social success, according to coordinators Joyce Washburn and Sharon Combes-Farr. Washburn and Combes-Farr said 60 guests attended the affair and helped raise more than $7,000 in needed funds.

Dalai Lama from page 1

China during the 1950s. The Dalai Lama said Buddhism is not a religion based on belief like the great Western monotheistic religions; instead, it is a more inwardly focused path with no mention of God. ”We create ourselves,” he said of Buddhist’s belief in

God. And echoing the words of the Christian Ecumenist movement and the Bahá'í Faith, his hope is for all world religions to find common ground—someday. During both Middlebury sessions, the Dalai Lama answered questions submitted by the audience.

After his 48-hour-long visit to Vermont, the holy man headed off for other goodwill visits and then home—to Tibet. Both the Dalai Lama's Tibetan residences, the Potala Palace and Norbulingka, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

“You are the planet’s hope,” he told the students, “you are the first generation of the 21st century. But will the 21st century be a century of bloodshed and violence or will it become a century of peace?” The holy man apparently is no friend of Western capi-

talism; he received applause when he said he was attracted to some Marxist ideas (of wealth redistribution). "Of all the economic theories, Marxism is founded on moral principles, while capitalism is concerned only with gain and profitability,” he said. However, the Dalai Lama did not mention the fact that his native Tibet was seized by a “moral” Marxist

Reasons more U.S. churches should sanction same-sex relationships Guest Viewpoint An evergreen tender spot on the religiouspolitical landscape is homosexuality and gay marriage. When a politician, pundit or gadfly wants to gin up his or her base, an easy tactic is to make a statement about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. It’s one of those issues where everyone has an opinion, one way or another. One of the many roles that Jesus modeled for us was that of social reformer. He championed the equality of outcasts – prostitutes, beggars, widows, orphans, lepers. He ignored their ‘pre-existing conditions’ and just loved ‘em. You don’t have to be a well-educated liberal today to be on the right side of history, you just have to follow Christ’s example. Currently, there are three American Christian denominations that officially accept homosexuality in their clergy: Episcopalians, Lutherans and Presbyterians. In July, the Episcopalian Church became the largest U.S. denomination to officially sanction samesex unions by authorizing a “blessings” ceremony. Here are four reasons why American

churches should accept homosexuality and gay marriage: • In support of family and monogamy: The current estimate of U.S. citizens who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) is 12 million. Due to lingering stigmas, that self-reported number is likely only a fraction of the actual. Even 12 million is a significant portion of the population who have been forced to live on the sidelines and denied the rights and responsibilities that other Americans enjoy, including marriage, and the adoption of needy children. Such denial of freedoms for sexual minorities runs counter to the Christian belief in family values. Indeed, there are many theologians who argue homosexuality is one of God’s diverse gifts in His creation of families. • Avoiding hypocrisy and elitism: Like so many topics in the Bible, its few brief references to same-sex relations beg for intelligent interpretation. The original Bible writings never used the word “homosexual”. Translators introduced that term. In context, biblical “clobber passages” condemn “unnatural relations”, meaning God finds it an abomination when straight persons ignore their nature and have sex with partners of

their own sex. Logically, people whose natural orientation is toward their own gender would have “unnatural relations” if they’re intimate with opposite sex partners. Another example is when people parrot what they’ve heard about the sin of Sodom being same-sex relations. They don’t realize that the Bible itself repeatedly and clearly defines that city’s wicked sins as inhospitality and unloving acts toward others. That’s a charge some make against churches which discriminate against members of the GLBT community. When will we learn? Christ’s message is inclusive, not exclusive. • Already accepted in three denominations: Episcopalians, Lutherans and Presbyterians – none of them wildly radical sects of Christians – now ordain openly gay as well as openly straight clergy. While it’s nothing new for denominations to disagree, it should be noteworthy that three mainstream Christian churches have accepted and embraced gay people. • Most importantly, Jesus told us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Modern-day Pharisees love to emulate God’s role as judge more than Christ’s model of loving caregiver to the littlest, the lowest, the last and the least.
