‘Dairy pricing system is broken’ By Lou Varricchio

week, a triple-witching hour of sorts has taken place: The prices of fuel, feed and bedding sawdust used by farmers has hit the barn roof. Now dairy farmers find themselves staring into an abyss of uncertain depth. Since 2004, 250 dairy farms have closed in Vermont. Since January of this year, 32 farms have closed. Only 1,046 farms remain in busi-

Vermont dairy farmers are facing their greatest crisis yet. The price of milk has dropped to $13.81 per 100 weight from $20 cwt just a year ago. As the price of milk fell to its 2009 low last

ness today and the figure shrinks each month. According to state data, dairy represents 70 percent of Vermont's agricultural economy— over $2 billion. The state’s farm business also generates over $68 million in local and state taxes with 96 percent of farm supplies—from feed to slop buckets—are purchased locally.

Man dies in auto mishap On July 22, at approximately 9:20 a.m., Rutland-resident George Wolf, age 75, was traveling in his 1990 Plymouth Sundance southbound on Route 7 in the right hand lane. Rutland-resident Valerie Badger was traveling west, in her 2004 GMC truck, through the intersection of Routes 7 and 103. She intended to travel west on Squires Road. According to witnesses, Wolf did not stop at the intersection’s red light and collided with Badger. The front area of Wolf ’s vehicle made contact with the front passenger side of Badger ’s vehicle, forcing Badger off the roadway. Wolf ’s vehicle came to a position of uncontrolled rest in the field off the south west corner of the intersection. The force of the impact caused Wolf ’s vehicle to change its direction 90 degrees; it came to rest in the middle of Squires Road. Wolf was ejected from his vehicle and died while enroute to Rutland Regional Medical Center. Badger was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for minor injuries. Clarendon Fire, Rutland Ambulance Service, and Vermont DMV members responded to the scene. The crash is still under investigation. Anyone who might have witnessed the crash is asked to call the Vermont State Police at the Rutland barracks at 7739101.

Recycling VT for Over 75 Years

Eleven-year-old Calvin Brooks of Poultney was inspired by the work of a group of handcrafters at the Castleton Community Center. The crafters are knitting washable wool helmet liners for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Knitters Network led by member Judy Boss have made over 750 helmet liners and shipped 466 to men and women on active duty overseas. Brooks knew the women needed help raising funds to cover the cost of the wool and the shipping, so he stepped up and took on a leadership role. Brooks put collection cans in Shaw’s Supermarket and other stores in the Poultney and Castleton areas, talked about the project at his school, and raised over $170 to help in the effort to support American troops overseas. The public is invited to get involved; if you are interested in knitting or donating to the helmet liner project, contact the Castleton Community Center at 468-3093.

Photo fakery makes the e-mail rounds By Lou Varricchio

Minnesota explorer Lonnie Dupre in Greenland: “I believe it is a fake.” Photo courtesy of Lonnie Dupre

F is for Fake: This North Pole photo is purported to have been taken during the week of May 11, 2009. It’s a fake being circulated via e-mail. Furthermore, news archives reveal no North Polar expedition anytime during the month of May; it appears that no human ever set foot at the geographic North Pole between April and late June of this year. This writer also contacted

Lonnie Dupre, a respected Minnesota-based arctic researcher and explorer; he agrees—the image is a fake. Dupre has retraced the icy footsteps of famous polar explorers from Knud Rasmussen to Frederick Cook to the top of the world. He is also an ac-

education sessions for her well-heeled polar vacationers, who pay up to $24,000 for a visit to the North Pole. “When it comes to Internet claims and pictures, people need to practice discernment,” she said. “How to discern what’s true and what’s false in cyberspace is a critical skill today.” Campbell said that arctic ice hummocks typically rise only 5 feet above the surrounding ice. There’s simply no terra firma at the North Pole—only ice—unlike what appears in the e-mail image. American adventurers John Huston and Tyler Fish completed an historic trek to the North Pole earlier this year, but they returned to the U.S. in late April, so the May 11 photo cannot be linked to them.

A reader of this newspaper called regarding a photograph of the Moon she received via an unsolicited e-mail dated July 23. “The e-mail has a photo of the Moon over the North Pole and claiming it was ‘at its closest point’ and has never been so large in the sky,” the caller said. “It’s beautiful.” But she wanted to know more: “Is it real?” The caller next forwarded the e-mail to this writer. It included text and the photograph in question; the image is supposed to show a largerthan-normal crescent Moon above the setting Sun. The mysterious image purports to have been taken at the North Pole during the week of May 11, 2009. Ice-free ocean water and low hills also appear in the image. The image has all the earmarks of fakery. The e-mail image shows a waxing crescent Moon for May 11, 2009. A quick glance at an astronomical almanac for May 2009 shows that the waning gibbous phase was visible during the week of May 11— not the crescent phase. Also, the Moon in this image is enormous—it’s simply too large to be believable as seen in the sky from Earth. But there are other clues: open water and hills in the picture. There is no land within hundreds of miles of the North Pole. We had New Market Press news photographer J. Kirk Edwards of Ferrisburgh study the image. “It looks like it’s ‘photoshopped’ to me,” he said. “Perhaps two or more images blended together?” This writer contacted Quark Expeditions, an adventuretravel firm based in Norwalk, Conn. Quark organizes annual expeditions to the North Pole aboard a Russian nuclearpowered icebreaker. The trips are conducted during late June and July when it is safest to travel to the far north. Prisca Campbell, marketing manager at Quark, last visited the pole in the summer of 2008; she looked at the e-mail and said its North Pole image is doctored. “Completely fake! There’s just not that kind of open water at the pole. The image is not showing the geographic North Pole. Maybe it’s supposed to be North Pole, Aka.? It’s not clear in the e-mail. Still, it’s probably a composite of some real photos, but as a whole, it’s a fake.” Campbell said that she plans to provide some Internet

The fault is in not in our stars, dear Brutus, but in our baggage... “Cat, you’ve been out dancing every night this week. Look at you. You have bags under your eyes.” I strolled into the kitchen, took two brown paper lunch bags out of the cabinet, and Scotchtaped them under my eyes. “So, Mom, I have bags under my eyes?” She took one look at me, tried to hold back a burst of laughter, then sarcastically said, “You’re too much.” Upon reflecting on this scene, I realized that the evolution of the bag for me began with our ordinary lunch bag. These days many refer to me as “the Bag Lady of Poultney High School” as I cart as many as five workbags into school. Each bag is organized for a certain purpose. The way I look at it bags help organize life’s responsibilities. According to the Encyclopedia of Symbolism by Kevin J. Todeschi, bag and baggage is defined as: “That which one possess and may utilize”. Metaphorically, the word bag can be used as follows: having something in the bag equals planning on a successful outcome; packing one’s bags equals getting ready for departure. Having excess baggage equals having personal problems. A trash bag could signify that which needs to be thrown away or that which one has discarded. Bag lady might symbolize simplicity.” No matter where you go and what you do, we all have baggage, which, for many, can be downright hard-knocked baggage as life progresses. What about student, relationship, family, emotional, and other assorted life baggage? Why do some of us have more baggage than others? In many respects life’s circumstances unfortunately dictate what type of baggage we must carry. The baggage that seems to be most troublesome to me, along with other teachers, is the student baggage. Some of our students come from such broken homes, and they need the return of the “love, nurturing, caring” baggage from us who truly care for them. It seems that other priorities for some in the field of edu-

Time to talk turkey A

few weeks ago, I shared some personal thoughts and opinions about acting, performing and auditioning. I wrote the column because folks often share with me a hidden desire to get up on stage and test their ability; I thought sharing bits of my prior experiences from the business-of-show, might in some way help them. Not sure how the column was received by the “lay” actor public, but I did hear from the artistic director of a well-known area theater group. He told me he agreed with the thoughts and methods I shared in the piece. His comments left me no choice than to think the acting-tip column was worth the time. Hence the following “test speech” for you tentative, but future thespians, to work on—at your leisure. The speech below can be performed fast, slow, shouted, screamed, played in full-on turkey apparatus, a pilgrim suit, a wheelchair, a wading pool, or on top of an R.V. It can be sung, signed, or spoken in Japanese. The list of ways you can present this turkey piece is endless; each of those ways can work. But if I were you, before I’d rent the turkey outfit from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade folks, I’d start by simply reading the piece over, and over, and over, until any natural ability you have surfaces, allowing you to illuminate the words without using gimmicks or tricks. I wrote the bit below to be performed on a radio show. If, as you read it, you think it’s boring and lacking and pointless... you’re probably right. Don’t give up. The key thing is that if you put

enough time in with a piece—even one that reads blah—you’ll find it will come to life through you, especially if you have any ability at all and even if you have no ability whatsoever. All you have to do is put the time in, approach it with simplicity, and be patient. The words won’t let you down. Future actors, I leave you this piece because it worked extremely well when read on the radio by someone with no more ability than any of you. That’s me. It’s not an easy piece to make work, but give it a shot. I suggest you buy a set of turkey pepper and salt shakers, and after this year ’s Thanksgiving meal prayer, place the male turkey front and center, and let fly with your rendition of— Steve the Inconsolable Pepper Shaker: “I’m Steve, the male, and the pepper, of the male and female salt and peppershakers. “Better looking than she is, Salt. My tail feathers are all fanned out like a bloomin’ onion. I look good on the table—better ’n Salt. Yet, every Thanksgiving when Aunt Elma asks which is the salt and which is the pepper, the genius humans at the table say “The pepper is the one with the tail feathers fanned, the pretty one, the female.” The male is the better-looking turkey. “And, and humans, we fly. We ain’t transcontinental, but we can get to where we wanna get, when we wanna get there, no further, no sooner, which is noble. Yet you genius humans think we don’t fly— ahh! “And what’s with this: you calling bad movies turkeys? And you call

cation seem to get in the way of this. Why don’t we take a step back and remember it all began the slow progression of bags? When you think about it, we began with our parents’ baby diaper bags, lunch bags, schoolbook bags or backpacks, and eventually graduated to employment bags. Bags come in all shapes and sizes, but many of us tend to deal with too many garbage bags. There are all types of bags: plastic grocery, brown paper grocery, recycling, handbag, sports and gym bag, tool tote bag, cosmetic and toiletry bag, personalized travel luggage, and carry-on air-travel bag. Bags, too, come in a variety of status brand and non-brand levels such as: Coach, Louis Vuitton, your basic leather, canvas, plastic, mesh, netted, quilted, and so on. Many folks even have personalized monogrammed bags. Last summer, a man I know had a unique bag, which he called his attaché case—his very own case for carrying and monitoring his bodily fluids after extensive surgery. Baggage—where does it lead or not lead? How many bags do you carry or can you carry? In any event, for those that want to get rid of any kind of baggage, do what my mother suggests. She has the correct attitude about the personal baggage we carry around with us each day: “Put it on an airplane and let it fly away.” Catherine M. Oliverio Wells, Vt. Catherine M.

tourists turkeys? And beef hamburgers aren’t good enough, you gotta make turkey burgers now? And let’s see, pepperoni, meatball, sausage, nowhere near enough meat for our pizza, throw some turkey on it. And the last time someone called you Butterball—did that make you happy? And talk about flustered, the liberals got it so they don’t shoot amphetamines in to us anymore, which is a downer; how’d you like it if every time you have what seems like might be a perfect sneeze comin’, (do sneeze action with gobble on end of it) you gobble and ruin it? “And by the way, humans, Jimmy cracked corn and you don’t care? I care humans.

his summer marks the start of a three-yearlong 40th anniversary celebration of NASA’s Apollo lunar landings. The celebration started July 20 with Apollo 11—listed on many calendars as “Moon Day”. The event continues with Apollo 12’s 40th anniversary on Nov. 19; it then resumes in 2010 through 2012 with the 40th anniversaries of the Apollo 14 through 17 lunar landings. Let’s hope that by Apollo 11’s 50th birthday, the U.S. will be well on its way with sending humans back to the Moon and beyond. In terms of our nearest neighbor in space, Apollo has helped scientists paint a more complete picture of the Moon. Rock samples, instrument data records, and photography contributed to a better understanding of our rocky companion. Still, many questions remain unanswered. Within days of the return of lunar rock and soil samples, researchers began tackling the mysteries of the Moon. In January 1970, nearly 1,000 space scientists from 10 nations assembled at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Tx. This conference of “lunatics” focused on the presentations of 142 principal investigators who examined Apollo 11 rock and dust samples between July and December 1969. Here are a few of the Apollo 11 discoveries announced by investigators during that momentous gathering: •The Moon is about 4.6 billion years old. The age of the Moon is identical to the Earth. •The Moon was extremely hot in the past. In addition to a period of intense bombardment, the Moon was also volcanic. Lava rocks at Tranquility Base are similar to lava rocks from Hawaii. •Apollo 11 astronauts observed transient lunar phenomena (or “outgassing”) flying over the crater Aristarchus; this TLP event indicates that

the lunar interior is still molten. •Two percent of the lunar surface is composed of organic-rich carbonaceous chondrite material. The carbon-rich stuff is most likely derived from meteorites. Many scientists believe space organics contributed to the evolution of life on Earth. •Moon rocks are “first cousins” to terrestrial rocks. This fact indicates that the Earth and Moon have a common heritage. •There is evidence of gold, silver, uranium, thorium, titanium, iron, zircon, rubies, garnets and phosphates on the Moon. Only future prospecting will determine if these metals and minerals exist in extractible quantities. •Three new minerals that do not exist on Earth were discovered in Apollo 11 rocks. Perhaps these minerals might have industrial applications. •Erosion is occurring on the Moon being caused by several processes: impacts, volcanism, moonquakes and solar/cosmic particle bombardment. Loose rocks scattered around the surface should leave behind evidence of trenching but the features are not visible. What filled up the trenches? •Tektites are odd, meteoritelike natural glass rocks found on Earth. About 50 percent of the Moon is composed of similar, although not identical, natural glass—both impact and

volcanic glasses. Apollo 11 astronauts didn’t find tektites, but an Apollo 12 lunar rock contains material that is chemically identical to some tektites. On Sept. 22, 1969, NASA announced that researcher Dean Chapman had used a computer to trace the trajectory patterns of Australasian tektites back to a very surprising source—the lunar crater Tycho. What’s in the Sky: In the south look for the constellation Scorpius with its magnificent deep sky objects: M6 the Butterfly Cluster, and M7 the Ptolemy Cluster, near Shaula; the globular clusters M4 and M 80 are near Antares.

The power to change Boomers find renewal as volunteers By Lisa Bates As of 2007 more than 35 million baby boomers were retired; the statistics on 2007 will not be available until January. According to the U.S. Department of Census, since 2006 the number of people turning 60 each day is 7,918 or 330 every hour. Those indomitable individuals born between 1946 and 1964 are doing it again. Just as they have changed the face of parenthood, exercise, gender roles, lifestyles and just about everything else they are now changing the face of retirement. The new trend among baby boomers is to have what is being dubbed “encore careers”; unlike their first careers these new jobs have a civic minded tint. They are volunteering in record numbers at non profits, charities and other civic organizations that are community based. The idea is not to “make money” but to change the world. Three individuals who represent this new trend—Dick Gurney, George Cook and Elise Beane—each has come from a different area of business but still chosen to start second careers as volunteers. Dick Gurney is typical of the new face of volunteerism. After spending over 30 years as an employee and then supervisor at General Electric’s Rutland plant he retired. An avid golfer at a healthy age 60, Dick Gurney could have very easily retired to a life of leisure. Instead he has chosen to give something back to the community and volunteer at Rutland Regional Medical Center. Today, Dick is a volunteer Surgical Patient Advocate at RRMC. In his new job he acts at the liaison between the hospital's surgical staff and patient’s family. Who hasn’t been alone in a hospital waiting for word on a beloved family or friend’s condition? At RRMC Dick is the person that advocates for those people. On a recent visit he had a clip board with names of families and friends along with the time their loved ones went into surgery. During his shift he made and received calls from the surgical unit about loved ones. In addition he offered free coffee and a smiling face to those waiting. When asked why he decided to volunteer he replied, “I have the time; in the past you don’t always have time. This hospital really pushes services. This job that I do here I am not aware of at other hospitals. How many times do you sit in a hospital and don’t know who to call or what to do. Here there is a face, someone to help.” George Cook is amazing by any standard. At age 60, George Cook is one of the few Amerasians in Vermont. However, instead of isolating himself within his own community he has chosen to dedicate himself to helping others. Perhaps it is his Asian approach to life combined with western esthetics that gives him the perspective to see all work as a way of changing the world. George spent his career working for the Vermont Department of Corrections. While many people might not see the corrections depart-

ment as a vocation, it certainly was one for George because he believes that any positive changes in a person’s life makes a difference. After retiring he decided that he wanted to continue giving to his community. So George Cook did what he always does, something completely unusual. He decided to join the AmeriCorps program. Currently, he is an AmeriCorps Volunteer for Neighbor Works of Western Vermont. In that job he works as a Intake/Outreach Specialist helping people find funds for their daily living expenses. When asked why he didn’t just enjoy his retirement George smiled and said, “I do everything backwards so now I am volunteering.” Whether it is working as an AmeriCorps volunteer or refereeing college sports George has a spirit of community that is unbreakable. Elise Beane didn’t start out with the idea of volunteering, in fact, quite the opposite. As a full time working mother and wife she dreamed of a time when she could follow her heart and travel the world. Elise spent her career working with the developmentally disabled for the State of Vermont. It was a job that she found both rewarding and challenging. However, between the needs of her four children and a husband often out to sea with the navy, she had little time for to think about retirement. But in time her children grew up, married and moved away. All too soon it was over and she was 60 years old. As she prepared for retirement she decided that she would travel which is exactly what she did her first year. “At first it was exciting but I missed Vermont. I started looking around for something to do. My husband starting volunteering at the VA clinic, but that just wasn’t for me. I wanted something else but I didn’t know what. Then a friend of mine told me about VISTA, so I did some paperwork and that was it,” she said. Today Elise is happily going through a list of non profits that have VISTA position available. She hasn’t decided which agency she would like to work with but she knows it will be one where she is helping people. As you can see, “encore volunteers” are highly skilled and trained in a variety of fields. What they bring to any non profit is an amazing set of skills mixed with the wisdom that comes with age. Yet again the baby boomers have reinvented themselves. Who knows what they’ll do next? One thing is for sure. We are all along for the ride.

Students win Best of State Prizes for history exhibits National History Day finals were held at the University of Maryland near Washington, D.C. A delegation of Vermont students who placed first or second at the Vermont History Day state competition in April participated in the national competition. Twenty-six local students attended the Washington event—this year ’s theme was “The Individual in History: Actions and Legacies.” Andrew Rainville from Mount Abraham Union High School in Bristol and Hannah Sturtevant from Vergennes Union High School received the Best of the State prizes—Rainville for his exhibit on John Deere and Sturtevant for her J. Edgar Hoover exhibit. Elle Ross of Clarendon’s Mill River Union High School and Holly Cloutier from Black River High School in Ludlow also ranked in the top third (papers and exhibits). Vermont representatives met the students on the U.S. Capitol steps in Washington. Students presented the government officials with Vermont History Day buttons and took the opportunity to have photographs taken with the famous dome providing the backdrop.

study history and it provides the opportunity to share the knowledge they have gained. Every year, the program is open to Vermont students in grades six through 12, including home-school students. Working individually or in small groups, this year ’s student participants chose an historical event on a topic related to the National History Day theme. With research done in libraries,

museums, and historical societies, as well as interviews and site visits to explore their topic, students prepared papers, exhibits, documentaries, web sites, or performances as entries. In the spring, the entries were judged by local historians, educators, and other professionals. Students said they gained a deeper understanding of how people, cultures, and events affect the course of history.

WEST HAVEN - With the way Ken Tremont Jr. is running at Devil's Bowl Speedway, finishing second may not be such a bad thing. Tremont came from the no. 12 starting position Sunday night and rolled to his fourth win of the season in the 30-lap 358-modified feature at the Vermont track. Tremont is getting on a hot streak just like he did in 2006, when he dominated the competition in the month of July, posting five consecutive victories. He's only got back-to-backers so far this year, but no other 358 driver has been in victory lane in July. Ray Hoard set the pace for the first 17 laps, but once Tremont got the front, Hoard could only watch as the No. 115 pulled away. Hoard crossed the finish line second, his best performance since running second to Tremont on July 29, 2007. Tim Laduc hit the finish line third, followed by Vince Quenneville Jr. and defending track champion Todd Stone. Robert Bublak drove to his first career victory in the 20lap budget sportsman feature. Bublak came off the front row and led all 20 laps. With the last 11 laps of the feature going green, he finished with a huge lead over the Hoard family, as Frank Hoard Jr. finished second and Frank Hoard III was third. They were followed by Cullen Howe and Anthony Marro. Cale Kneer returned to victory lane in the 20-lap pro-street stock feature. Kneer, who had his car impounded the previous week to check on an engine issue, which turned out to be negative, took the lead from Carl Vladyka with four to go

and came away with his third win of the year. Jeff Washburn and Vladyka battled for second, with Washburn getting the edge. Dan Older came away with his first win of the season in the 20-lap limited feature. Mike Clark took the lead on lap 12 in the caution-plagued feature, but Older worked his way around Clark on lap 18 and beat Clark to the finish line by a nose. Dave Emigh finished third. George Foster was first under the checkered flag in the Duke stocks, and Kayla Bryant was victorious in the ministocks. Devil's Bowl will be back in action on Sunday, July 26, with Black Flag Night.

From page 1 With ongoing farm closings , the crisis will expand affecting feed dealers, farm vehicle and equipment suppliers, processors, farm insurers and creditors and other businesses. “The dairy pricing system in the United States is broken. It is antiquated, dating back to the 1930s when markets were not as complex as they are today, and simply does not work as originally intended. And although there has always been some volatility and market fluctuation in dairy pricing, the swings are becoming more dramatic and occur more often,” according to Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Roger Allbee. “This most recent downturn in prices is the worst yet. Cost of production is almost twice what farmers are getting paid for fluid milk and it's predicted that these low prices will be in effect for a longer period than originally thought.” Dairy farmers Bob and Beth Kennett of Rochester are the human face of Vermont’s current dairy crisis. The Kennetts started their Liberty Hill Dairy Farm in the 1970s. According to state agricultural records, 50 farms operated in Rochester area back in 1960. Nineteen years later, in 1979, only 11 were still in business. As of this month, the Kennetts have acquired the dubious distinction of being the last dairy farmers still operating in the Upper White River Valley. “Like many Vermont families, Bob and Beth Kennett had hoped to pass their farm on to their children, Tom and David... to raise their own families on the farm,” said U.S Rep. Peter Welch (D) in a recent statement about the crisis. “But despite their efforts and their hard work, the family now finds itself saddled with loans and losing money with every passing day. Like so many Vermonters, they just don't know how much longer they can afford to keep their doors open,” the Congressman said. To address the crisis, members of the Vermont House and Senate Agriculture Committee sent an emergency letter to the Vermont Milk Commission. In the letter, committee members urged the commission to take immediate action.
