Police widen Brandon-area vandalism probe Damage estimated at $15,000 BRANDON — The Vermont State Police and Brandon Police Department responded to more than 30 related vandalism cases in northern Rutland and southern Addison counties during Halloween weekend. The incidents involved the perpetrators throwing large rocks at homes and cars from a moving vehicle, during the late night hours of Oct. 30 (“Cabbage Night”) through Nov. 4. The damage ranged from smashed car windows and severely dented body panels to home siding being damaged as a result of the rocks being thrown. An estimated $15,000 in total damages occurred amongst all of the reported incidents. A list of suspects were developed and resulted in the confessions and arrests of several area juveniles. The incidents are still being investigated and there are more possible arrests forthcoming. Anyone that has information is asked to contact either the Vermont State Police in New Haven (802-388-4919) or the Brandon Police Department (802-247-0222).

Poultney man dies in ATV accident POULTNEY — On Nov. 21, at about 7:27 p.m. the Vermont State Police investigated a reported single ATV crash in the area of 1660 High Rd. in Poultney. Initial investigation revealed that a Suzuki King-Quad 750 ATV, operated by Edward Kasuba, age 53. A juvenile female was a passenger on the rear of the ATV. While traveling southbound, Kasuba lost control of the ATV, and spun sideways toward the eastern side of the road. The ATV left the travel portion of the road and collided with a small embankment located on the east side of road. After colliding with the embankment, the ATV flipped at least one time, ejecting Kasuba and female passenger from the ATV. Kausba was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of injuries sustained from the crash. The juvenile female was transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment for non-life threatening injuries. Neither Kasuba or the female passenger were wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The Vermont State Police were assisted on scene by the Poultney Fire Department, the Poultney Rescue Squad, and the Fair Haven Rescue Squad.

In the comfort food zone


eat loaf, mashed potatoes, goulash, grilled cheese, Campbell’s canned tomato soup—stuff when I was a kid we’d look at and say, “Oh, Ma, we gotta eat this crap again?” Now Martha Stewart’s got us payin’ big money to eat that same stuff because she’s named it comfort food. I imagine Martha, with $20 million in the bank and houses scattered all over the world, a bowl of Campbell’s canned tomato soup tastes pretty good. But when you’re pouring concrete 60 hours a week for 290 bucks take-home, Campbell’s tomato soup just taste like tinny catsup—that’s if you stir in some comfort milk. So, rich people, go ahead and sell us all the designer comfort food you want, long as we can have a taste of your granddaddy’ inheritance comfort money— “Hey Homer, how’d you afford that in-ground swimmin’ pool?” “Why, we bought it with Martha’s great granddad’s inheritance comfort money. I tell ya Joe, it’s nice having a pool you don’t have to climb a wall to get into.” Cheap ground beef, instant mashed taters, canned corn and grey gravy. 1970s all-you-can-eat Sheppard’s Pie, $2.50 a plate at the local diner. Show of hands, how many of you rich people in the ‘70s would have come within 10 miles of Sheppard’s Pie? Only one hand up, eh? Must be you’re old money. Now at them fancy food stores, same Sheppard’s Pie, and rich people throw in some garlic and a few capers, call it comfort food, and charge the poor folks 18 bucks a pound for it. Them rich people are smart; they serve the poor folks comfort food—goulash, cream chipped beef on toast— thinking the poor folks won’t be able to stop eatin’ it and they’ll get so fat they won’t be able to walk down to town meeting and vote against the rich people. Comfort food. Is that it? After you eat a bunch of Kraft macaroni and cheese, or sausage stuffing, are you comfortable? Emotionally maybe, but not physically. Shouldn’t comfort food really be called, discomfort food? Or emotionally comforting food? Comfort food is a media term built to sell lower middle and lower class American’s weight and lethargy producing foods that promote an increase in physical complacency, which adds to increased T.V./couch time; that in turn lowers our level of health and raises the need for doctor visits, which are forerunners of a direct path leading to more drug use—prescription and otherwise. Imagine me running for public office and spouting that on the campaign trail? I wouldn’t be able to buy votes. Well, I could buy votes, you can always buy votes, but I’d be laughed at. Mmm, maybe I’ll run. Being laughed at served me well so far. Rusty DeWees tours Vermont and Northern New York with his act “The Logger.” His column appears weekly.

WEDNESDAY December 2, 2009

Greetings from planet Earth W

hat would happen if terrestrial audioand-visual signals, dating back to the Golden Age of Television, were detected by extraterrestrials on distant planets? Is such an idea possible? And what would extraterrestrials make of our earliest T.V. signals? Even with today’s digital television retooling efforts, television is disseminated widely by an old medium—radio transmission. Broadcast T.V., in its purest sense, is a form of radio; that is, radio with pictures. Most T.V. channels straddle the 54–890 MHz (megahertz) frequency band. But even as technology changes, and more closed circuit-type T.V. transmission methods are used en masse, it is likely that future video signals will still leak into space. But for our discussion, we’re interested in those early broadcast analog T.V. signals—signals out there. Somewhere. It may come as a surprise to discover that the first powerful broadcast T.V. signals leaving planet Earth were neither the shortwave experiments by pioneering sci-fi writer and experimenter Hugo Gernsback in New York in the 1920s nor the broadcasts of 1950s American T.V. shows. Instead, the first T.V. signals to leave the Earth originated in Nazi Germany. Earth’s earliest, far-ranging video signals were German propaganda broadcasts between the 1930s and mid 1940s. While its video propaganda plans never panned out, the socialist Nazi government had hoped to equip every German household with a free T.V. set. While the technology existed for German television by the mid 1930s, the cost of CRT (cathode-ray tube) manufacturing and the infant medium’s transmission infrastructure remained elusive. Hilter ’s opening remarks at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games appear to qualify it as the first deep-space signal. Radio astronomer Chris Davis, of Britain’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, claims that terrestrial T.V.-radio signals like the Nazicasts of the ‘30s and ‘40s could be picked up on distant planets with the proper hardware and soft-

ware. “A good amount of Earth’s artificial radiowaves, like the shortwave frequency variety, never get past the ionosphere,” Davis said in a recent BBC interview. “However, modern broadcast television signals can pierce the atmosphere. These signals easily traverse space at the speed of light.” But as these signals cross interstellar medium, they would become very diffuse and difficult to focus at the receiving end. “There are two things that you would need to get such a signal—firstly, it has to be able to leave our planet, secondly it would have to have as much power as possible,” Davis noted. “As you go into space that power would dissipate. They would need more and more sensitive equipment to pick it up.” I’m sure that if advanced civilizations exist, they will have the ability to detect Earth’s faintest television-radio signals. Of the question, what would aliens make of these signals, well, that’s anybody’s guess. But, somewhere—out there—the television broadcasts of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, and original episodes of “Star Trek” and “The Brady Bunch” are approaching the recently discovered planetary system of Zeta Reticuli. Farther out into space, the original broadcast signals of “The Lone Ranger” and “Howdy Doody” are approaching the planets orbiting Pi Mensae. And reaching even farther into the vastness of of the Milky Way, hypothetical extraterrestrials 73 light years distant may be watching humanity’s first interstellar greeting—from none other than Adolph Hitler. What’s in the Sky: Look for beautiful star cluster M34 visible in binoculars in the constellation Perseus, in the northwest, this weekend before sunrise. The star Mirphak (also Mirfak) is Perseus’ brightest object. Lou Varricchio, M.Sc., is a former NASA science writer.

When ideology trumps ethics I

n an attempt to preclude accusations of snarkiness, I’ll refrain here from asking why the higher professions have found it necessary to develop and publish elaborate canons of moral and behavioral ethics for mandatory compliance by members while plying their various trades. I’ll simply note that the productive professions have done just that, while the political profession— ideologues and pragmatists, active politicians and passive commentators—has not. Thus, members of the California bar are required not to withhold evidence which, if released to the opposition, might damage their own chances for a courtroom victory. I’d guess that the rule was put in place because “winning trumps everything” barristers might otherwise do just that sort of withholding and prior reliance on idealistic notions of conscience hadn’t worked without a printed rule. This now appears in the California Code of Judicial Ethics: Canon 3D. It identifies seven categories of egregious lawyer conduct. For example, item 4 of the California canon specifically proscribes “…Willful… withholding… exculpatory evidence… ” Presumably, if item 4 weren’t there, lawyers would do just that. Now, with rare exceptions, they don’t. Having chosen not to adopt the written code, the political profession usually does. Here’s an example— Drawing on a recent state-by-state income/wealth versus taxation study by the Washington-based Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, the Vermont-based Public Assets Institute published a news release last week with this ITEP quote: “…The Vermont tax system already falls most heavily on the very poorest families in the state.” You can find this 130-page study—with its multi-color bar graphs showing percentage-of-income tax levels for all income quintiles for all states—on the ITEP website. Vermont is shown with the bottom income quintile paying 8.2 percent of income and the fourth quintile (middleincome) category from $54 to $85K paying 9.2 percent (an ITEP fact about distribution of tax burden not deemed mentionable or reportable by PAI) while the top quintile pays an average 7.7 percent, lower than the bottom quintile, hence the PAI equality-based-outcome-seeking angst. It’s the argument of both ITEP and PAI that such numbers illustrate an inherently wicked level of favor-the-rich unfairness. And why would ITEP, and with a greater verbal intensity PAI, choose to withhold the stats showing that it’s the Vermont middle- and upper-middle-income quintiles which pay the highest percentage of their income in taxes, not the lowest? Therefore, contrary to the breathless PAI reassertion that “The Vermont tax system falls most heavily on the very poorest families in the state”, the truth is that the heaviest burden falls, as almost inevitably happens, on the

long-suffering middle-income quintiles? Even the proverbial oblivious-to-politics-resident of East-Overshoe, Vt., knows the answer: It’s because the ideological template of the political left, in pursuit of re-distribution of wealth, requires that only those stats showing the poorest paying more and the richest paying less may be legitimately recited. Absent any canon of ethics for politics that would motivate PAI writers to meet the “just the facts, ma’am” standards of fictional Det. Sgt. Joe Friday, these ideologues chose to ignore inconvenient facts which didn’t fit their pre-conceived notions of Amerika; they only recited the facts which could be manipulated to fit their template. Note the incompetent oversight or unintentional but non-malicious research gap: the inconvenient facts are there in black-on-white print and graphic full color charts on the Vermont pages (pp. 106-7) of the ITEP study PAI has chosen to analyze and interpret. The only way to miss the troublesome facts is to choose to. As if mistating the tax burden distribution weren’t enough, there’s more. It’s the Holmesian non-barking dog, the missing set of income (or, more precisely, imputed income, the monetized value of goods and services received without payment by the recipient) data showing the value of transfer payments from the middle- and upper-income quintiles to the lowest income quintile via tax-and-spend re-distribution programs. These data aren’t even mentioned in the ITEP study. Perhaps the PAI news release scribes can be excused for similarly ignoring them? Yet the impact on total ‘real’ income the transfer payments represent is substantial. Consider, that a family of four—with a nominal income less than $27,000/year receiving food stamps—enjoys a purchasing power gain of $668/month. That’s $8,000/year, raising the real income to $35,000; that’s an income level which, if entirely recorded as real income, would place that family in the highly-taxed middle-income quintile. Food stamps are used to buy food with a non-taxable dollar value, unlike the hapless real middle-class family which buys its groceries with after-tax dollars. Similarly, there’s subsidized housing and even Dr. Dinosaur. Why doesn’t PAI mention these? Ask the guy from East Overshoe. Retired Vermont school architect Martin Harris lives in Tennessee.

GOP to offer holiday meals to soldiers, families RUTLAND — Rutland City Republicans will be hosting a special holiday dinner Dec. 15, 6-9 p.m. to honor Rutland County National Guard troops as they ready to deploy to the Middle East. The dinner will be held at the American Legion Hall located at 33 Washington St. in Rutland. Rutland area soldiers and their families will be guests of honor for the spaghetti dinner benefit. The general public is invited to attend with a $10 donation per person payable at the door. All proceeds from the benefit dinner support the Vermont National Guard Charitable Foundation, Inc. The National Guard Charitable Foundation funds assist Vermont Guard families with travel costs to bring troops home for the holidays. Paula Lannon, one of organizers of the Rutland dinner, is pleased to have the opportunity to personally give thanks to Vermont soldiers and their families. “Our Rutland area National Guard Troops and their families selflessly give of themselves so that we are able to enjoy our freedoms. Saying ‘thank you’ and showing our support for them with a delicious dinner is a small token of our appreciation. We also thank the American Legion Hall for the use of their building and staff,” Lannon said. For more information regarding this event, contact Lannon at 558-2328 or e-mail at

Fair Haven students team up with Vermont architect FAIR HAVEN — A collaboration between the Slate Valley Teen Center in Fair Haven and Stafford Technical Center has begun to develop as students from STC’s Architecture Engineering Design (AED) program worked on the proposed teen center location under the supervision of architect Mark McManus of Middletown Springs. STC second year students Chad Johnson and John Pluta, both from Mill River Union High School, spent time measuring, recording, and sketching the existing assembly space above the Fair Haven Municipal Offices. The space originally housed the local high school, but has been unused for approximately 50 years. The space boasts high ceilings, wood wainscoting, and tall windows, which bring in lots of natural light and wonderful views of the town green. The Stafford AED students will have the opportunity to work on “as built” drawings which will be used in the development of a design for the center. This project has enabled the Stafford students to utilize their program skills in a “real world” application. The proposed teen center will serve eleven surrounding towns and two high schools, Fair Haven Union High School and Poultney High School.

t’s time again to answer reader mail from people like you who are learning to Super-Coupon: Q: “I’ve been reading your columns with great interest. Prices seem so high right now in the grocery store. If I just buy the store brand of products, won’t I save more money than using coupons on the big brands?” By Jill Cataldo A: This is a common misconception among new coupon shoppers. It’s true that when you compare the shelf price of store brands with the price of name-brand products, the store brands often appear to save us more money. But with rare exceptions, we can almost always buy the namebrand products that we like and prefer — with coupons — at an even better price than the store brand. Why is this? Quite simply, there are more coupons and discounts available for name-brand products than for storebrand products. If you look at your coupon inserts from the newspaper and the wide variety of coupons available on the Internet, you’ll quickly notice there are typically no coupons for store-brand items. Large, brand-name product manufacturers work hard to encourage us to try their products. They feature their brands and products in the coupon inserts, offering shoppers significant discounts to try them. Many times, it’s also possible to find store coupons for the same products. If we stack a store and manufacturer coupon together, we’re reaching an even larger savings on the brand-name item than we could by simply purchasing the store brand at its regular low price. As with all things, there are always exceptions. If your store happens to offer coupons for its own brands, that’s a great way to save. Here’s a perfect example. Recently, my store had coupon dispensers set up in the aisle offering $1 coupons for “any [store-brand] paper product.” During this sale, store-brand rolls of paper towels, boxes of facial tissue and packages of the napkins were all on sale for $1. Now, if you’re a regular reader of my column, you know that using a $1 coupon on a $1 sale is one of my favorite ways to get things for free! Speaking of coupon dispensers, our next question this week pertains to them. Q: “I often see coupon machines on the shelves of the grocery store, but the coupons in them aren’t usually for things on sale. Is there a strategy for getting good discounts with these?” A: Absolutely! You’re right in noticing that most of the time, the coupons in the store’s coupon dispensers don’t link up to the best sales in the store. That’s also true of the coupons we receive in the newspaper each week. Their greatest value comes when the price of the featured item takes a big dip. I regularly “shop” the coupon dispensers in my stores. If I see coupons for an item I like, I will take a few to hold onto until the sale price drops. About six weeks ago, my store’s coupon dispenser offered $2 coupons for turkey bacon. But the turkey bacon was on sale for $4.99, a relatively high price. I took a few coupons from the dispenser and held onto them for four weeks … when the price of the turkey bacon went down to $2.99. Now, I took home turkey bacon for 99 cents a package! If I had used those coupons the week I found them in the dispenser though, I would still have paid $2.99 a package — three times the price. © CTW Features

CASTLETON — The Castleton State College Spartans men’s hockey team opened up their 2009 season last Friday by losing at home to Saint Anslem 4-3, before tying the New England College 2-2 last week. On Friday, the game was tight all the way with visiting Saint Anslem hanging on to claim a one goal win. Mike Richard and Ryan Butler led the visitors with a goal and an assist each. Nick Rossi and Tucker Mullin contributed single goals, while goalie Alex Wyse preserved the 4-3 win by making two dozen saves. Stuart Stefan, Lindsey Gullett and Kirk Bolduc all scored single goals for Castleton in a losing effort. Freshman for-

ward Josh Harris provided a pair of assists in his NCAA debut. Despite being out shot 34-27 the Panthers had a chance right up to the final buzzer thanks to the effort of goalie Seth McNary; who turned in an impressive 30 saves. Saturdays game against the New England College Pilgrims was even tighter. After skating to a 2-2 tie over the first two periods the two teams turned in a scoreless third and overtime periods to end in a 2-2 tie. Stuart Stefan had a goal and an assist, while Omar Pacha provided the other goal for the Spartans. Alex Muse and Jeff Armando provided the two goals for the visiting Pilgrims, while NEC goalie Aaron Harvey preserved the tie by making 32 saves. McNary made another 27 saves for the Spartans, who fell to 0-1-1 with the tie. New England College left town with the same record.

South defeats North 61-39 in 2009 H.S. Senior Bowl By Frederick Pockette MIDDLEBURY — Southern quarterbacks Keegan Corbett of Mount Anthony and Sam Stockwell of Woodstock teamed up to lead the South to a 61-39 win in this years Senior Bowl, played last Saturday in Middlebury. Corbett completed 21 of his 31 passes for 358 yards and four touchdowns. Stockwell added two more TD passes, including the game clincher, a 47-yard completion to Brandon Boyle with just 3:56 left to play in the game. Rutland Raider wide out Ricky Lantman caught three of those touchdown passes, while Mount Anthony’s Mike Rogers added a TD reception to the win. Brattleboro’s Davin Freeman made a huge contribution to the South’s victory by finding the end zone four times. Freeman had touchdown runs of 6, 4 and 77 yards and added

a TD catch for his fourth touchdown. Max Librizzi, quarterback of the Division I State Champion Essex Hornets, put together one final fantastic performance Corbett completed 29 of 46 pass attempts for 446 yards including three interceptions and six touchdowns. Five of those TD catches were made by targets familiar to Corbett, Essex teammates Pat Nee and Kevin Jenko. Nee hauled in three TD passes while Jeriko caught a pair. Librizzi’s other touchdown completion was to BFA-St. Albans’ Matt Wainscott For the South it was their second straight win and they now hold a 5-4 edge in the series. For some of these seniors this was their last high school football game ever, while others will suit up one more time next summer to take on New Hampshire in the 2010 Shrine Game. 44057
