Life of Otter Valley teacher remembered BRANDON — John Herman Brutkoski, age 66, died Jan.8 at Rutland Regional Medical Center. He was born in Proctor, Feb. 12, 1943, oldest of six children of Herman and Mary (Kamuda) Brutkoski. John Brutkoski The Brutkoski family moved to Brandon in 1951 and ran the Union Street Market. Brutkoski was a member of the last graduating class of Brandon High School in 1961. He worked for the Vermont Marble Company and then entered Castleton State College, graduating with a bachelor ’s degree in education in 1966. He later earned a master ’s degree from the College of St. Joseph. He taught junior high and middle school social studies at Otter Valley Union High School from 1966 until he retired in 2003. Brutkoski’s 37 years of service remain the longest of any faculty member in Otter Valley’s history. In addition to his work in the classroom, for many years he sold tickets to OV basketball and football games, and each summer he, Coach Pattie Candon, and other staff members gave the school’s hallways a fresh coat of paint for the coming year. In the 1980s, he worked as a counselor for OV students participating in the Vermont Summer Youth Employment Program. Many students spoke of him as their favorite teacher, and he in turn was always proud to see a former student succeed. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, gardening, reading and traveling. He was a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan and also followed football, college basketball, tennis and auto racing. He was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Brandon, where he had served as an altar boy as a child. John enjoyed people and sharing stories with them. His sense of humor and interest in others made him enjoyable company. He will be missed by many who counted on him because of his caring and generous nature. He is survived by his wife, Sandy (Wynne) Brutkoski, whom he married on Dec. 22, 1973, at St. Monica’s Church in Forest Dale; their daughter, Donna

Mt. Tabor man guilty

Activist Farmer

MT. TABOR — David B. McLellan of Mt. Tabor pled guilty to three felony “environmental crimes” in Vermont District Court in Rutland. Pursuant to a plea agreement with the Vermont Attorney General's Office, McLellan pled guilty to one count of illegal storage or disposal of hazardous waste, one count of illegal storage or disposal of solid waste, and one count of illegal release of hazardous materials. The agreement calls for imposition of a suspended sentence with probation and for McLellan to pay a fine and restitution of excavation and clean-up costs. The state may argue for a fine of up to $65,000 at sentencing, which will be held at a later date. "This case should send a wake-up call so that businesses and individuals know to properly store and dispose of hazardous waste and materials" said Attorney Gen. William H. Sorrell. "Ignoring the rules is not an option," he added. The charges stem from an investigation conducted by the Attorney General’s Office and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources in 2008. The investigation related to the burial by McLellan of 55-gallon steel drums containing hazardous materials, including waste oil, on his property in Mt. Tabor. Excavation of the site during the investigation revealed that some of the drums had leaked hazardous materials into the environment. The investigation also found that McLellan improperly buried more than one cubic yard of solid waste.

Taxpayer funds to support firefighters Firefighter recruitment, retention

Farmer Sally Beckwith, of the Foggy Meadow Farm in Benson, will join other local farmers Feb. 6 for a special photographic exhibit at the Griswold Library at Green Mountain College in Poultney. Professional photographs and interviews will tell the stories behind Rutland County farmers who—like Beckwith—are leaders of the nonprofit group Rural Vermont. Beckwith and other farmers work to secure fair prices for farmers and local food options for Vermonters. The event, 6:30–8 p.m., is free.

A $100,000 grant of taxpayer funds will be used to recruit, train and retain firefighters and emergency medical services personnel throughout Vermont. The 2009-10 economic downturn and other factors have strained the ranks of volunteer firefighters and other emergency personnel. At a news conference held in U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) office in Burlington, Kristy Oxholm, president of the Vermont State Firefighters Association, Jim Finger, president of the American Ambulance Association,Gary Dillon of the Waterbury Volunteer Fire Department, Chief Charles Cole of the Essex Volunteer Fire Department, Dean Gilmore of the New Haven Volunteer Fire Department, Chief Tom Hooker of the Pittsford Volunteer Fire Department, and Chief Jim Litevich of the Vermont Fire Academy were hand to make the announcement. A report by the U.S. Fire Administration described volunteer emergency services as a “tradition in danger of weakening and possibly even dying out.” The report noted a drop of more than 97,000 volunteers since 1984. A survey of the National Fire Protection Association showed that at least two-thirds of the nation’s fire departments are understaffed. The situation was worse in rural communities. The $100,000 grant for Vermont will address those needs in various ways, including improved outreach to high school students and continuation of a successful summer program for young people.

Solar energy gets a big boost in Vermont By Lou Varricchio BURLINGTON — Reliable solar power in Vermont just got a big shot in the arm. Thanks to $500,000 in taxpayer funds and additional public and private dollars, the Champlain Housing Trust will install the latest solar hot-water technology in four, affordable-housing developments in the region. The effort will significantly reduce the use of heating oil and help shrink the "carbon footprint" of these developments. The $500,000 grant will be "bested" by $700,000 in additional public and private funds. When completed, the solar project will be the largest government- and private-assisted effort of its kind in Vermont. The energy efficient and money saving solar water systems will be installed at the Salmon Run Apartments in Burlington, the Highgate Apartments in Barre, Westgate Apartments in Brattleboro, and Applegate Apartments in Bennington, according to the office of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Future, similar solar-energy projects may include public

and private housing Addison and Rutland counties. According to U.S. Department of Energy data, more than 25 percent of the average Vermont household’s annual energy usage is devoted to simply heating water. The DOE data does not include the amount of hot-water energy usage by the state's business and agriculture sectors. Some of the money that will be used to install the solarpowered heaters originated as a U.S. Department of Energy taxpayer funded grant. In the case of Salmon Run in Burlington, 80 apartments will use the power of the Sun to heat water that is used for bathing and washing purposes. “At a time when we are spending $350 billion a year importing oil from Saudi Arabia and other countries, it is important that the United States move away from foreign oil to energy independence,” Sanders said. “Programs like this are a major step forward.” Sanders said he helped secure the funds to install the housing project solar systems at a news conference held at Salmon Run, Jan. 13. When installed at the four Vermont housing sites, solar hot-water heaters will be used in 402 apartments (with approximately 1,000 apartment dwellers). The solar hot-water systems that will be used in the Vermont housing developments are expected to pay for themselves in five or more years..

Law enforcement agencies concerneded by accidents Drivers ignore Move Over Law The Vermont State Police, the Governor ’s Highway Safety Program, the South Burlington Police Department and the Chittenden County Sheriff ’s Department participated in a joint news conference last week to speak of the preliminary 2009 fatal crash data and winter weather driving with emphasis on the state’s Move Over Law. Steve Reckers of the Governor ’s Highway Safety Program spoke of the preliminary 2009 fatal crash data. There were 75 fatalities. Below is the statistical break down: Of the 75 fatalities: 64 percent were males (48) 36 percent were females (27) 75 percent (56) in vehicles used as passenger conveyance 39 percent of fatalities in vehicles were restrained 76 percent (57) of fatalities were Vermont residents 41 percent of the fatalities occurred on a Friday or a Saturday 35 percent (67) were alcohol related while 11 percent (8) are unknown 10.7 percent (8) were motorcycle riders. The oldest deceased in the state was age 87 (2), youngest deceased was age 3. Two damaged State Police cruisers and a damaged police cruiser that had been struck on the interstate highway this winter due to motorists not abiding by the “Move Over Law” were displayed at the conference to stress the importance of this law. Lt. John Flannigan, of the VSP, spoke of two key points to remind operators on how to react properly while in the presence of emergency vehicles, towing and highway maintenance vehicles: When an emergency vehicle approaches any motor vehicle in traffic and that emergency vehicle is displaying it’s flashing lights and or siren, all vehicles are to pull to the right and come to a complete stop. The simple rule to remember, ac-

Two damaged Vermont police cruisers, both struck by Vermont drivers, are visual proof of the rising accident rate so far this winter. cording to Flannigan, is to pull to the right for sirens and lights. The operator of a vehicle which is approaching a stationary law enforcement vehicle which is displaying a blue or blue and white signal lamp, or of a vehicle which is approaching a stationary ambulance, fire apparatus, a vehicle operated by a volunteer firefighter, rescue vehicle or a stationary towing and repair vehicle displaying an amber signal lamp must proceed with caution, and, if traveling on a four-lane highway, and safety conditions permit, make a lane change. It is reported that more than 150 U.S. law enforcement officers have been killed since 1999 after being struck by vehicles along America's highways, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Violating Title 23 Vermont Statutes Annotated section 1050 (Operation on approach of law enforcement and emergency vehicles) carries a fine of $243 and five points.

Students cook, serve dinner at Dismas House Recently, three students from Rutland High School’s Green Mountain Teen Institute (GMTI) group and 2 students from Stafford Technical Center ’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Chapter recently prepared dinner for about 10 residents and a staff member at the Rutland Dismas House. Dismas House is a place that provides transitional housing and services designed to help former prisoners re-enter society. The residents at Dismas House are expected to work, participate in chores at the house, and to work on any individual issues like drug treatment, anger management, etc. Part of the Dismas model is having positive interactions with the community; community members prepare meals for the residents five days a week, and then share the dinner with the residents. The GMTI group and Stafford’s SADD Chapter have been collaborating on a number of projects lately, and the GMTI group invited the SADD chapter to assist

in the ongoing dinners at Dismas House. The first dinner that was jointly prepared was a taco dinner prepared by Rutland High School GMTI seniors Kristen Trevino, Marisa Kiefaber, and Katie Holmquist and

Stafford Technical Center SADD members Ashley Barnes, a senior at Rutland High School, and Erika Stocker, a senior from Mill River Union High School. The students really enjoyed the experience and

have volunteered to do this again. They were impressed by the warmth and depth of appreciation that the residents showed to the students.

Controlling tobacco in Vermont: mixed grades Vermont’s tobacco control policies earned mixed grades, with low marks for tobacco control program funding and tobacco cessation coverage and high grades for smokefree air and tobacco excise taxes in the American Lung Association’s State of Tobacco Control 2009reported released last week. The State of Tobacco Control 2009 grades states on smokefree air laws, cigarette tax rates, tobacco prevention and control program funding, and state health insurance coverage of smoking cessation. “Vermont has done a good job, despite limited resources, to prevent youth from starting to smoke and to help adults quit smoking. However, low income Vermonters have a higher rate


of smoking than the general population and the youth smoking rate has not changed since 2005,” said Rebecca Ryan, director of health promotion and public policy for the American Lung Association in Vermont. “To reduce health care costs, it is critical that we invest in preventing disease rather than treating it. Investing in the comprehensive tobacco control program will save lives and reduce Vermont’s health care costs,” she added. Vermont received a ‘D’ for tobacco prevention and control spending. The state currently spends $4.8 million from the tobacco industry Master Settlement Agreement and the Tobacco Trust Fund compared to the $10.4 million recommended by the Centers for Disease Con-

trol and Prevention (CDC). Vermont received an ‘A’ in smokefree air laws, a ‘B’ for cigarette taxes and an ‘F’ for state health insurance coverage for smoking cessation. This grade evaluates the provision for coverage from Medicaid, state employee health plans and state mandates for private insurers. The low grade should not be viewed as a complete assessment of the state’s tobacco cessation efforts. Fortunately, most Vermont smokers can receive free coaching and nicotine replacement therapy through the Vermont Quit Network, coordinated by the department of health. Tobacco-related illness, the number-one preventable cause of death in Vermont, is responsible for an estimated 830 deaths and costs the

state an estimated $434 million in health care and lost productivity each year.

It’s time to repeal Title 32


s the Vermont State Constitution being eroded away? Of the people, by the people—or is it now of the dollar by the dollar? Is open farmland in the state being appraised and taxed at more than can be generated by farming practices? The answer is yes. If you have read the Vermont Constitution, which I assume many voters have, having taken the Freeman’s Oath, swearing to uphold the constitution. I refer you to Chapter II, Section 61 of the current Vermont Constitution, which states, “As every freeman, to preserve his/her independence (if without sufficient estate) ought to have some profession, calling trade or farm , whereby he may honestly subsist.” How about Chapter 1, Article 9 of the 1791 Vermont Constitution: “That every member of society hath a right to be protected in the enjoyment of life, liberty and property, and therefore is bound to contribute his proportion towards the expense of that protection... but no part of any person’s property can be justly taken from him or applied to public uses, without his own consent.” Here’s Chapter 1, Article 9 of the 1777 constitution: “No public tat, custom or contribution shall be imposed upon, or paid by, the people of this state except by law for that purpose; and before any law be made for raising it, the purpose for which any tax is to be raised ought to appear clear to the Legislature to be more service to the community, than the money would be if not collected; which being will observed, taxes can never be burdens.” The current problem with Vermont’s constitution is Title 32 which is allowing land to be appraised not for what it is currently used for, or has always been used for, but its potential development value. There used to be a legislative body in Vermont called the Council of Censors; it was designed as a check upon government. It was a mechanism through which the people could periodically review the actions of their elected and appointed officials. The Council of Censors recommended to the legislature the repealing of laws that are contrary to the principles of the constitution. The bound-book records of the Council of Censors of the State of Vermont, published in 1991 by authority of James H. Douglas, secretary of state in Montpelier, is very informative of our rights and duties as free people of Vermont. I highly recommend you get a copy and read it. If any Eagle readers like our open farmland, you must take a stand now! Call your elected representative and demand that your voice and wishes be represented in Montpelier. It is time to repeal Title 32. Vermont land needs to be appraised and taxed for what it is currently used for—and it may also be time to reinstate the Council of Censors. The way of government is of the dollar. It cost $250. Just to make an appeal to the Vermont Supreme Court you incur lawyer fees and expert witness fees. Perhaps some good lawyer out there might take an interest in the unjust nature of Title 32? It’s your state and home, too. United we can make a difference in creating a fair and just society in Vermont,. Please get involved. Your voice can make a difference.

Ballon d’essai I

n an earnest effort—I’m trying really, really, hard—to stay au courant with, and au milieu de the elevated intellectual climate for which the gentry-left (plural noun) of Norwich, Vt., expect to be known and appreciated, I’ll characterize as, a ballon d’essai, the following quote from School Board member Geoffrey Vitt as reported in the Jan. 8 issue of the Norwich-area Valley News. Here it is: “…Cutting too much out of the budget could lead parents to send their children to private school, and… exacerbate school funding problems.” If the trial balloon (ballon d’essai) symbolism dating from the Great Depression years, and the then-new-use of weather balloons, doesn’t work for you perhaps the more recent “let’s run it up the flagpole to see who salutes it” imagery—supposedly spawned in the Madison Avenue ad agency culture of the 1950s—will. Either way, it’s a new tactic in the please-vote-for-ourtax-increasing- school-budget strategy in the annual campaign on this subject. Until now, the argument has been couched in terms of “We’re doing wonderful and excellent things for the inadequately prepared children you’ve dumped on us. If you vote against our barely enlarged budget, over which we have little control, it’s because you’re too cheap and stingy, too intellectually challenged to comprehend and appreciate our efforts. So if you don’t vote ‘yes’ we’ll just bring it back iterum iterumque until you finally get it right.” Whew! In Benson, Vt., in the mid-1990s, school officials brought it back a dozen times; it never gained voter acceptance and so the local school board and educrats went to the Vermont Legislature instead for approval. They got it! So much for the old rural Vermont legend of local control. Unlike Benson, where the arrogant school board demanded, and got, higher-level Golden Dome adult supervision, in the burg of Norwich the tactic is a cost-threat: “Approve our spending or your taxes will go up even more because you’ve caused our enrollment to go down even more”. In recent years, like most Vermont school districts, Norwich has responded to an enrollment down-trend with a staff up-trend. On the assumption voiced by board member Mr. Vitt, that enrollment declines were caused by too-large classes, the Norwich average was actually over 13 in 2006. The board approved class size reduction to below 12 in 2008. Last year ’s numbers aren’t available from the school report website, because the Vermont Ed Department has decided it would be imprudent to continue to furnish such data for public inspection. Over the same years, enrollment has shrunk from 306 to

WEDNESDAY January 27, 2010 297, while teaching staff and instructional aides increased from 41.2 to 42.5, and the total budget went from $8.9MM to $13.3MM. That’s a 49 percent spending increase, which, interestingly, the board ascribes to a change in the Common Level of Appraisal—thus causing a 17 percent tax increase in the unusual absence of a proposed spending increase. Clearly, the previous 49 percent spending boost wasn’t enough, in Mr. Vitt’s view, to prevent “driving students out of this school”. And equally clearly, my view has been wrong all along. I had (incorrectly, I now admit) ascribed Vermont’s socalled “brain-drain” of adults in the 25-44 age cohort, as documented by economist Art Woolf, to the pressures on younger members of the work force to flee the Green Mountain State in search of better career opportunity and pay; also the corollary (unjustified) assumption that, when such young adults leave, they take their children with them. Now, under the Vitt thesis, I can clearly see my error: it has been the understandably dissatisfied third graders wanting out, even across state lines, of their maliciously overcrowded and underfunded classrooms; plus dragging their educationally insensitive and unwilling parents with them. By extension, it’s been the dissatisfied 10k or so students, fleeing the under-spending Vermont schools and causing the enrollment drop from over 100k to just over 90k, which has caused the brain-drain, and not the State economic situation. And the brain-drain has happened in the public schools, not in the workplace. Who knew? As you should expect, even a casual glance at the student test scores reveals the achievement superiority of Norwich grade-schoolers: on both Vermont DRA and NECAP tests, almost all scored “proficient” or better, well above State averages, but there’s still a few –in single-digit percentage-points-- who didn’t. The spend-more point: the students were cruelly failed by the Marion W. Cross School in which, because of large class-size and grossly inadequate instructional investment, they were left to flounder. And they have statistical proof: from 2006 to 2008, as a result of board budgeting priorities, the percentage of spending allocated to “direct instruction” went from 69 to 61percent. The Common Level of Appraisal numbers weren’t even involved. For shame.

Driving tips from bus driver dad


y comments from last week, which were about the increasing rate people are driving off our interstate highway, contains a few of the many bad weather driving tips I feel qualified to pass on to you. I feel qualified because in 35 years of driving in Vermont, I’ve not slid off the interstate. Not being cocky, just sayin’ so. If you study and practice, meditate on the following thoughts and tips—you won’t necessarily always stay between the white lines, but you’ll be better equipped to try like hell. When driving, try hard to stay focused. I do and attribute my ability to focus to the two notes listed below: 1. My Greyhound Bus driver dad (nicknamed “Dry Ice DeWees” by his peers), taught me to drive and instilled in me the importance of steadfast concentration. 2. There are two kinds of drivers: those who’ve crashed, and those who are going to crash. Carrying this creed helps remind me to keep practicing the first rule. From approximately mid-October to late April, in less then half of one minute, Vermont’s interstate highway conditions can turn from 100 percent clear and dry, to 100 percent wet and slick with zero visibility. Always remember that and you’ll never let your guard down. Then, too, reserve a portion of your mind to house the following: “If I drive well within my ability and the parameters of which the present conditions allow for me to end up in the ditch, I’d have steer and aim for it.” Am I suggesting keeping from driving into a ditch during a snowstorm can be done simply through the power of mind over matter? Not exactly. Whenever possible, stay off the roads when they’re bad. These days weathercasters forecast a month in advance— heed their warnings. Schedule your fun night out another time, and or, don’t schedule fun nights out, period. Most of you people who drive off the road are the type to complain about taxes. If you stay the heck home, you’ll save money and have more left to spend on your taxes, so you won’t feel the need to complain, and the less complaining you do the more relaxed you’ll be, which will free your spirit to the point that you’ll be more likely to want to stay home and enjoy the company of your spouse and children, thus keeping you off the roads. The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone, as staying home in bad weather is connected to not going off the road, is connected to… happily paying taxes? Run an aggressive tread winter tire. They’re expensive, but so are those undies you soiled when you arrived at a stand-still, tire-side up, smashed against a rock ledge with a face full of powder blown there a blast from your bald-

all-seasons-sportin’ SUV’s side air bags. Winter tires! While driving on the interstate with a gal I’m hoping to get friendly with later, I pull a little to the right and run over the rumble strip cut-outs on the shoulder for five seconds or so to try and jiggle her emotional sexual apparatus so’s just to get her at least thinking about it. Works most every time. Don’t forget too, rumble strips are where to run your right side tires when the direct path pavement gets icy or covered with snow. The rumble strips, aside from being an aphrodisiac can provide sturdy purpose to your vehicle’s traction. I’ll say though, if visibility is at all sketchy, stay the hang off of the shoulder as to not bash into a disabled car. Man O’ man, you bang into a stopped car on the shoulder going seventy miles an hour, the next most interesting thing that happens regarding you would be your cat’s behavior while she tries to figure out where the heck her master is. Which reminds me: stopping totally due to road conditions is never recommended. If you are stationary on the road you are a sitting duck. Stop completely only if you have to because of a flat tire or engine failure. If conditions are extremely poor regarding traction or visibility (Visibility is generally better than you might think. Gauge it by how far away you estimate a car is when you first spot it’s lights. But don’t hang your hat on that rule, use it only to bolster your confidence in allowing you to drive safely, not faster), try your best to at least keep crawling along a mile or three and hour. That way if someone does ram into you, your forward inertia will minimize the impact, and, creeping along will assure you will at some point finally arrive at your destination, which of course is better than not arriving at all. It’s nearly time I wrap this up and I’ve not yet touched on the dastardliest of road conditions. So, next week’s column will be full of thoughts about detecting and operating safely through the many situations that occur related to— ice.

Volunteers helping seniors smile this winter RUTLAND — For the third year in a row, At Home Senior Care and the Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging have chosen to fulfill this need by providing needed items for elders in our communities. Starting in early November and continuing through December, At Home Senior Care and the Southwestern Vermont Council on the Aging began organizing and accepting donations for delivery to seniors. There were collection boxes set up for Rutland area donations at the Brandon Free Library, Wal-Mart, College of Saint Joseph, Castleton State College Library, Circle K, Irving Oil, the Castleton Community Center, and the Godnick Adult Center. This effort was also made possible through the generosity of employees at CVPS in Rutland, the Vermont Country Store, the office of Dr. Gary Breen, employees of the Smith Barney Office in Rutland, Carmie’s Angels under Patty Sabotka working with the Mill River Union High School Key Club, students at Grace Congregational Church preschool, a 4H Club led by Courtney Hier, a Rutland Town Brownie troop, 6th graders from the Castleton Elementary School, as well as numerous individual contributors. On Dec. 8, Geri Burke and Mary Lou Morrissette from At Home Senior Care, Lydia Thornblade, Nicole Pfeiffer, Marilyn Sura, and Brenda

Pictured with Christmas gifts oat the Godnick Adult Center in Rutland—Back row: Mary Lou Morrissette (President At Home Senior Care), Brenda Howe (Regional Coordinator of Neighbor to Neighbor AmeriCorps at Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging), and Maureen Harvey (American Recovery and Reinvestment Specialist SVCOA). Front row: Lydia Thornblade, Nikki Pfeiffer, and Marilyn Sura (N2N AmeriCorps Members at SVCOA). Howe from the AmeriCorps Neighbor to Neighbor Program at Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging, along with other volunteers and seniors from several area senior center sites organized an Healthy Aging Program at the Godnick Adult Center in Rutland. The group spent the time wrapping many donated gifts that were too large for the stockings. In just a couple of hours, these eager vol-

unteers wrapped a large number of gifts of a variety of shapes and sizes which are currently bringing an extra dose of comfort and joy to needy seniors in Rutland county. The time of wrapping was followed by a meal provided by Fitz-Vogt of Rutland. In the days following, case managers from the Council on Aging have been paying friendly visits and bringing bags of gifts and stuffed stockings to needy

seniors. On Dec. 18, the same AmeriCorps members, Melissa Morrison from At Home Senior Care of Bennington, and personnel from the Southwestern Council on Aging held a second Healthy Aging Program and meal to prepare similarly donated gifts and stockings from the Bennington area for that county’s seniors.

On the shore of a frigid sea U

nlike Earth’s shorelines, the alien shorelines of Saturn’s big moon Titan are lapped by an ultra-cold liquid hydrocarbon sea, perhaps liquid ethane—that’s enough hydrocarbon material to crack and refine into fuel for multiple planetary civilizations, using combustion engines, for many thousands of years. We can’t really call Titan’s ethane a “fossil fuel”—it’s more like a cosmic fuel since low temperature hydrocarbon compounds appear to abound throughout the universe. Digital images transmitted to Earth from the unmanned Cassini spacecraft's flyby of Titan showed clear evidence of a hydrocarbon lapped coastline in the moon's southern hemisphere. According to NASA's Carolina Martinez, "Hints that this area was once wet, or currently has liquid present, are evident." "We've been looking for evidence of oceans or seas on Titan for some time. This radar data is among the most telling evidence so far for a shoreline," said Steve Wall, radar deputy team leader from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Cassini’s amazing pictures reveal a shoreline dividing two regions roughly 1,060 by 106 miles. "This is the area where liquid or a wet surface has most likely been present, now or in the recent past,” said Wall. "Titan probably has episodic periods of rainfall or massive seepages of liquid from the ground." "We also see a network of channels that run across the bright terrain, indicating that fluids, probably liquid hydrocarbons, have flowed across this region," said Ellen Stofan, Cassini’s radar expert. The brightness patterns in the dark area indicate that it may once have been flooded with liquid that may now have partially receded. Bay-like features also lead scientists to speculate that the bright-dark boundary is most likely a shoreline, Martinez said. Larry Soderblom with the U.S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Ariz., said, "It looks as though fluid flowed in these channels, cutting deeply into the icy crust of Titan. Some of the channels extend over 100 kilometers (60 miles). Some of them may have been fed by springs, while others are more complicated networks that were likely filled by rainfall." According to a NASA news release about the recent Cassini discoveries, Titan has an environment somewhat similar to that of Earth—at least long before biological activity forever altered the composition of Earth's atmosphere. The major difference in the case of Titan is the absence of liquid water and its very low surface temperature. What's in the Sky: This weekend, in the western sky after sunset, treat yourself to a fabulous view of the star cluster M44 (aka NGC 2632) also known as Praesepe, the Beehive Cluster. It is easily visible to the naked eye. Astronomers can’t easily pinpoint M44’s distance but it’s between 160 to 187 parsecs (520-610 light years) distant.

Students gain safety certification

Raiders skate past Rebels By Frederick Pockette Brandon Rouleau turned in a hat trick to lead his Rutland Raiders to a 6-3 victory over the visiting South Burlington Rebels in boy’s high school hockey action last Saturday. Matt Mazzariello turned in a pair of goals while Taylor Porrier contributed a goal and four assists to the Raider win. Goalie Andrew Boyle made 15 saves for Rutland, who improved to 8-5-1 with the win. Tom Carlaccini scored two power play goals, and Tom Royer scored once to round out the scoring for the visiting Rebels. In the net Charlie Vallee made 20 saves for South Burlington, who fell to 8-6 with the loss. The Mount Saint Joseph Mounties were in action last Saturday too, but came up on the short end of a 9-3 score in Lyndon against the hometown Vikings. Brannan Lacourse scored four goals, while Dan Ott and Dylan Cloutier added a pair each to lead the Vikings scoring attack. Taylor Sanchez added a single goal. In a game where the Vikings outshoot Mounties 48-14 their goalies, Ahlund and Jake Solomon, needed to just stop five shots for Lyndon, who improved to 4-8-1 with the win. Mount Saint Joseph, remained winless at 0-14 with the loss.

It turned out exactly the same way in girls hockey action last Saturday too. The Rutland girls won on the road, defeating the Mount Mansfield Cougars 3-1 in Essex. Back in Rutland however the lady Mounties fell to a visiting Rice squad 4-2. In Essex, Chelsea Hill scored twice to lead Rutland to their 3-1 win over Mount Mansfield. Erin Rielly scored the Raiders remaining goal, while Kate Kuchena provided assists for all three of Rutland’s goals. Raider goalie Deanna Rodolfy preserved the win by making 21 saves. Kaleigh Heath scored Mount Mansfield lone goal, while in the net Autumn Hallock kept her Cougars in the contest by posting 29 saves. Rutland improved to 11-4 with the win, while Mount Mansfield fell to 5-8-1 on the year. Back in Rutland Ellen Sartorelli had an assist and two goals to lead Rice to a 4-2 win over the hometown Mounties of MSJ. Marina Berger and Annie Maheux completed the visitor ’s scoring with single goals. MSJ mounted plenty of offense, but the combined effort of goalies Carney-Knisley and Addie Stillman preserved the victory by yielding 23 saves between them. It was just Rice’s second win of the season against a dozen losses. Colleen Shouldite scored both Mountie goals and goalie Katelyn Robertello posted 14 in defeat for MSJ.

Local schools will join golf education program By Richard H. Mihlrad RUTLAND — The First Tee National School Program and the *statewide golf collaborative partners have announced 12 new elementary schools will participate in the First Tee National School Program for the 2010 school year. The 12 new schools join the 48 schools already participating in the program. Enrollment in the 60 schools participating in 2010 represent more than 10,000 physical education students. 2010 new schools: Berkshire Elementary (Richford), Bishop John A. Marshall School (Morrisville), The Dorset School, Middletown Springs Elementary, Orleans Elementary, Poultney Elementary, St. Albans Town Education Center, Stowe Elementary, Thetford Elementary, Tinmouth Elementary, Waits River Valley School (East Corinth), and Wells Village School. 2009 schools: Allen Brook School (Williston), Beeman Elementary (New Haven), Bradford Elementary & Graded School, Champlain Elementary (Burlington), Clarendon Elementary (North Clarendon), Dover Elementary School, Dummerston School (East Dummerston), Elm Hill Elementary (North Springfield), Georgia Middle School (St. Albans), Grafton Elementary School, J.J. Flynn Elementary (Burlington), Kurn Hattin Homes (Westminster), Lothrop Elementary School (Pittsford), Manchester Elementary, Mettawee Community School (West Pawlet), Newbury Elementary School, Northfield Elementary, Oak Grove School (Brattleboro), Orange Center School (East Barre), Orchard Elementary School (South Burlington), Rochester School, Rumney Elementary School (Middlesex), Stockbridge Elementary School, Warren Elementary School, and Williston Central. 2008 schools: Barnard Elementary School, Bristol Elementary School, Cavendish Town Elementary School, Chester-Andover Elementary School, East Montpelier Elementary School, Ludlow Elementary School, Lyndon Town

School, Milton Elementary School, Pomfret Elementary School, Proctor Elementary School, Reading Elementary School, Rutland Town School, Sherburne Elementary School, and State Street School (Windsor). “The National School Program is structured to present a quality, school golf curriculum that develops competency, understanding and progression through movement and physical skills,” said Benna Cawthorn, Director of The First Tee National School Program. “Through this program, children as young as five will be exposed to the motor patterns associated with golf, along with the inherent values of the game.” The National School Program curriculum is based on national physical education standards (, and uses equipment designed to be developmentally appropriate, safe and fun for children and beginners. The statewide Vermont golf collaborative partners, corporate sponsors, and individual donors are funding up to 75% of the one-time cost ($2,890) to the schools. Community support is integral to this program and the statewide golf associations and Vermont PGA teaching professionals will provide every school with information on a variety of instructional and play opportunities for interested students and families. Parents may also check the junior golf website: or for more information. The First Tee is an initiative of the World Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in St. Augustine, Florida at World Golf Village, home of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Its mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf. Since its inception in 1997, The First Tee has introduced the game of golf and its values to more than 2.2 million participants and students in 49 states and four international locations – Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Singapore. Former President George Bush serves as honorary chairperson.

Seven students in the Stafford Technical Center Public Safety Services Program recently were trained in the area of Highway Safety for Emergency Personnel by a trainer from the Vermont Fire Academy, Chuck Regula. Mr. Regula is a full-time firefighter with the Rutland City Fire Department. The principles behind this training deal with the proper way of positioning emergency vehicles- fire trucks, police cars, and ambulances. When these vehicles are placed in the proper spot, crashes caused by gawkers are less likely to occur. Crashes involving drivers who focus on the incident rather than the road are far too frequent- they become victims themselves, or in other circumstances, they kill the rescuers at the scene. If the inattentive driver hits the emergency vehicle instead of a person, an improperly placed apparatus will become a lethal weapon; a properly placed one will block the vehicle from doing any harm to the rescuers. The 10 students who successfully completed the program were Rutland High School students James Bonilla and Jordan Grenier, Otter Valley Union High School student Geoffry McDonald, Mill River Union High School students Haley Cotrupi and James Reed, Proctor High School student Kyle Lenher, and West Rutland High School student Kayla Stewart. Notably, James Reed scored 97 percent on the final exam. James Reed is also a member of the Middletown Springs Volunteer Fire Department. This course was developed by the Glatfelter Insurance Group both as a public service and as an attempt to reduce the costs to communities that these deaths and injuries to emergency services workers entail. In addition to the obvious costs in death benefits, medical costs, and workmen’s compensation claims, there are significant additional costs due to the loss of expertise. It takes years to become proficient as an EMT, police officer, or firefighter, much less an officer or specialist in these fields. When these professionals are lost to a community or organization, the loss is enormous. This course is required by many departments in the fire, police and rescue services.

Tax hike for property owners By Lou Varricchio RUTLAND — In addition to severe efforts statewide to cut budgets and eliminate needless spending, in every sector from state government to small business, it’s now the Rutland School Board’s turn to reduce costs. Last week, 11 members of the Rutland School Board moved to eliminate more than $600,000 from a projected $45.6 million-plus budget drafted for FY 2011. A budget of $45,009,704 was approved by board members after the board’s 6-5 vote split. On the RSB’s chopping block are— •Classroom supplies ($77,000). •School band equipment. •Athletic supplies. •Health insurance ($100,000 reduction) •Building maintenance ($404,296). •A dramatics course taught at Rutland High School. •More than a dozen teacher “coaching” stipends used to assist students with math and reading needs. •Student passes to local ski and snowboard trails ($10,000). The newly revised budget will result in a 15-cent hike in Rutland’s residential property tax rate. City officials said it means collecting$1.26 per $100 of property value accessed to $1.41. If you are a Rutland homeowner—with a residence valued at $200,000—you will pay an additional $300 or more in property taxes. The proposed school budget must be approved by registered voters during the City of Rutland’s traditional Town Meeting Day deliberations March 2.

RUTLAND — Cierra Phelps, a member of the Stafford Technical Center SADD Chapter, who is in the Public Safety Services Program, recently wrote and was awarded a competitive national grant dealing with teen dating violence prevention. The grant was one of 10 nationwide that was granted by with funds from the Liz Claiborne Foundation. After being awarded the grant, Cierra and her fellow SADD members and classmates went to work to fulfill the requirements of the grant, which was challenging as the grant required an initial presentation of the program, which was called “Hands Are Not For Hitting”, in the space of about 10 school days. The centerpiece of the program was a “silent witness” campaign, 8 plywood silhouettes of victims of dating violence, each with a personal story. The 8 silhouettes were of 6 women, 1 man, and 1 dog. Animals are often victims of domestic violence and teen dating violence and are abused to terrify the victim or used as a pawn in the relationship. The plywood silhouettes were made by Mr. Jeff Fowler of the Construction Technology Program and his students and then were painted by Stafford Technical Center SADD members Cierra Phelps, Haley Cotrupi, and Erika Stocker from Mill River Union High School, Jo Lilly from Otter Valley Union High School, and Kayla Stewart from West Rutland High School. The students developed a pledge for others to sign, which included a pledge not to be involved in an abusive relationship, either as the abuser or the abused person, and also, if they are a bystander witness to domestic or dating violence, to take some action, if only to report the abuse. The SADD members set up the silent witness campaign outside the cafeteria that serves the students at Rutland High School and Stafford Technical Center. There was also a table where stu-

dents or staff members could get information. Over 400 people signed the pledge that day and were given a purple silicone bracelet with the saying “Hands Are Not For Hitting” on it. The bracelets and the “witnesses” fostered a lot of discussion. The SADD members wore T-shirts that were designed by Paige Mayer of the Stafford Digital Arts Program, so that people could identify the members and ask them questions. The shirts, which had a silhouette and the “Hands Are Not For Hitting” logo on them, were so striking that a number of people asked to be able to buy T-shirts. The SADD members quickly decided to sell the shirts as a fundraiser, and to donate the profits to the Rutland County Women’s Network and Shelter. Additionally, the SADD members were asked to do a presentation to the Forestry, Natural Resources, and Horticulture class. Cierra Phelps had a presentation on this topic that she had prepared for a college PowerPoint class at the College of St. Joseph as part of her program of study in the Public Safety Services Program, and she and two other SADD members, James Reed, a junior from Mill River Union High School, and Kyle Lenher, a junior from Proctor High School, presented the program to the Forestry students. Other Stafford Technical Center SADD members taking part in this project were Rutland High School seniors Chris Crout, Jordan Grenier, James Bonilla, and Ashley Barnes, Mill River Union High School seniors Cantlin Eaton, Kayla Jones, and Nate Hance, and Geoffry McDonald, a senior at Otter Valley Union High School. The students also implemented this program for students at the College of St. Joseph, and are available to do a “silent witness” display at other schools or organizations.

RUTLAND — It’s time to welcome an exciting new restaurant in the Diamond Run Mall. It has an atmosphere of casual dining for family and friends; a place where you can sit and relax at a fully stocked bar and watch five, large screen televisions with your crew. The New American Grill and Taproom officially opened Dec. 3 in the Diamond Run Mall with a seating capacity of approximately 135. Owner Max Turner is excited about the possibilities for Rutland ’s restaurant industry. With six years under his belt with a restaurant in Londonderry, Vt., Max Turner is confident about his newest growth opportunity. “the New American Grill and Taproom makes me want to work everyday. It’s fun,” he said. Turner has considerable experience in resort towns in Connecticut and Utah as well as internationally in the Caribbean. He graduated from a culinary institute with a degree in management, so he has a solid grounding in creating many tempting dishes. Open from 11a.m-10 p.m., the area’s newest restaurant serves burgers, salads, soups, sandwiches, and desserts—to name just a few menu items. Offering fresh, quality fare at an affordable price (in a friendly comfortable environment), this restaurant is setting new standards for casual family dining in Rutland County. Diners can enjoy comfort foods from around the world. “It was nutty in here the first three weeks with the holiday season. Now it’s the end of January and the post holiday hangover provides some downtime that we can use to concentrate on fine tuning,” Turner added. The restaurant business is a tough business according to Turner. But they are working diligently to be flexible to a wide demographic. “You could come in a few times a week and always eat and drink something new,” said General Manager Eric Christensen. He pointed out that the New American Grill and Taproom is exploring promotional events and activities to bring in people to gather and socialize. Remaining is the private banquet room that holds between 40-50 people and will be used for birthday parties, retirement gatherings, Super Bowl party time and other social events as needed by the community. Every Thursday will be “Thirsty Thursday” and from 4:306:30 p.m. Uncle Dave from 94.5 the Drive will be on hand to D.J. a “Rock n Roll/ Sports Trivia Game” with giveaways and broadcasting live.

Governor, legislators announce $38 Million budget savings plan Bipartisan proposal Gov. Jim Douglas and Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie last week joined House Speaker Shap Smith and Senate President Pro Tem to announce a proposal to save $37.8 million in the fiscal year 2011 general fund budget and an estimated $72 million in fiscal year 2012. This proposal will relieve $36 million in property tax pressure in the next two fiscal years. Importantly, it will also enable state government to better deliver services to Vermonters. This proposal is the culmination of the work of Representatives Mike Obuchowski and Donna Sweaney, Senator Diane Snelling, Administration Secretary Neale Lunderville, Finance Commissioner Jim Reardon and the Public Strategies Group consultants throughout the fall. "I am pleased with the collaboration between the legislature and administration through the efforts of the steering team and PSG," said Smith. "Through this process we have identified challenges that will guide our state to a delivery system that will provide better services for Vermonters." "This collaboration is not just about saving money, it is about finding ways to do more with less and better delivering services to Vermonters," said Senator Shumlin. "Vermonters are best served when we work across party lines and branches of government and I am pleased that we have begun this important session in a spirit of cooperation." “Vermonters expect their representatives in Montpelier to work together to confront our fiscal challenges,” Dubie remarked. “The reform initiative we’ve announced today is the product of collaboration. It will help us achieve savings by moving the focus away from systems and processes, and refocusing on the people we serve and on the results we get. It’s an innovative approach for getting our economy back on track.”

Holiday sales surprises State Park officials RUTLAND — Holiday sales of Vermont State Parks gift certificates and merchandise jumped significantly this year as Vermonters gave the gift of the outdoors to family and friends. Sales of holiday gift certificates rose 13.5 percent over last year and total merchandise sales improved by 18 percent, wrapping up a good year on a high note. “Vermont’s 52 state parks are a significant economic tool— contributing nearly $60 million annually to the economy; hiring nearly 250 seasonal employees and managing almost 150 new capital construction projects worth $5.6 million this fiscal year,” Commissioner Jason Gibbs said.

New lottery game to start Ticket sales for the new Mega Millions game will begin in Vermont Jan. 31. Mega Millions is a multi-state lotto game with jackpots starting at $12,000,000.
