Vermont has been ranked no. 4 in the top-10 highest taxed states in a new report by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. The report was released last week. The Tax Foundation's 2013 State Business Tax Climate report ranked the best and worst states for taxes to enable business leaders, policymakers, and taxpayers understand how their states measure up—and choose the best states to work and relocate and do business. The 10 best states include Wyoming and South Dakota, as well as New Hampshire and Florida. And what did these states have in common? They have low rates or lack one of the five major taxes: individual income, corporate, property, sales or unemployment insurance. According to the report, Vermont gets hit for its high property taxes, which are the third highest in the nation with a 5.27 percent effective rate. The state's high individual income tax rate, the top marginal individual income tax is 8.95 percent, and high corporate tax rates help it earn its spot near the top as the fourthworst tax state in the nation. Other worst states in ranking: New York was no. 1, New Jersey was no. 2, California, no. 3, Rhode Island, no. 5, Minnesota, no. 6, North Carolina, no. 7, Wisconsin, no. 8, Iowa, no. 8, and Maryland, no. 10.

Rutland Mayor Chris Louras re-elected By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com RUTLAND — Rutland City Mayor Chris Louras (D) was re-elected in a close race with Alderman President Dave Allaire (R). The final vote tally was 2,032 to 1,611. Polling places around the city confirmed a lower- thannormal turnout for Town Meeting balloting this year, with 2012 Town meeting being an exception. Allaire, who is an employee of this newspaper, said it was a good race but he didn’t know why Louras won re-election. Appearing on debates on PEGTV in recent week, Louras criticized Allaire for a “negative campaign.” Allaire criticized the city’s rising drug-related crime rate under Louras leadership.

From the Editor
Food, glorious food
et’s talk about why so many people eat, sleep and dream about food.
America’s food fetish is not only unhealthy—witness our national obesity epidemic—but it’s also an international embarrassment. (I just hate giving the French another reason to snicker at us.) First, let me say up front that I love a good meal, and I support several fine, local restaurants. But beyond that, I do have a life and food is not at the center of it—at least not until civilization collapses and I must hunt down wild beasts to survive. Of course food fuels my mind and body, but I don’t let it rule my every waking thought. My life neither revolves around the ritual of meal preparation and consuming it nor is food a comfort thing, like, say, chocolate is for many folks. Let’s get down to basics: Food is just so much dead organic matter dropped down the gullet to be converted into energy and waste. In the end, whether my steak is marinaded in Maker ’s Mark Bourbon or steeped in port wine matters not to me. It’s the proverbial meat and potatoes, adorned or not, which runs this omnivorous engine. Whether my basement furnace runs on oil, natural gas or sunlight matters not to me. All I want is the heat in the wintertime. The same goes for my body. So, when the media turns kitchen chefs into modern pop-culture heroes, and when entire cable TV channels are devoted to cooking and food, I think we’re making a strong case for my “food fetish” theory. For four days running last week, I was listening to the trio of hosts of a popular Vermont morning radio talk show babble on about Burlington eateries, doughnuts, and what they like to eat. This broadcast predilection with food bordered on the gross. By the fifth day, I changed both modulation and stations. The radio dial now remains fixed on VPR’s classical music product. Our current, national obsession with all things foodish, and its preparation, is weird to me. Food is food, right? I, too, appreciate the flavors of a wellcooked meal, the exotic delights of so many native and ethnic cuisines, but cooking—as an art or as an obsession? Well, I just don’t know about that. I am sure all the restauranteurs and chefs reading this
will strongly disagree with my thinking. I admit, I am unschooled in the appreciation of cuisine arts. I never pictured my kitchen—or yours—as an art studio. When our stooped Australopithecine ancestors roasted the haunches of dead antelopes over open savannah camp fires, was that considered art? Was it considered Plio-Pleistocene haute cuisine? Or was the action of making a meal a survival skill needed to fuel the ol’ hominid furnace? I suppose the origin of our tasty meat rubs, glazes, marinades, sauces, and gravies came well after the Australopithecines—perhaps with the building of restaurants and cafes in the ancient city Ur or the advent of non-stick, terra-cotta saucepans. It’s amazing how our many personal luxuries and leisure pursuits—all created by civilization—give us plenty of time to burrow deep into our navels in order to turn a basic survival skill into an art. We Americans complain a lot about being overworked and underpaid, plus having no time to spare, yet—when it comes to food—we find the time (and the money) to either dine out in style or cook up complex, high-caloric dishes of our own. All this thinking abut food boils down to the simple idea that humans are quite funny. We’ll make an art and grand ritual of food and dining, yet neglect basics such as our personal health, our appearance, or our neighbors in need. Don’t let my musing about food spoil your dinner. By all means, enjoy your hot sausage and mustard—just don’t forget to thank the people who prepared your meal or brought it to your table. What next? We don’t need food or beverage taxes to control our waist sizes, but we do need to be more mindful of everything we do in our lives, not just when it comes to eating. It turns out our mothers were correct: when it comes to food, watch the snacking, don’t gobble your serving, avoid second helpings, go easy on desserts, and know when to push away from the table. And how about a stroll after dining when it’s feasible? There’s nothing like a walk to clear the mind, exercise the ever-spreading gluteal muscles, settle the stomach, even help avoid indigestion.

Leadership starts at the top
’m not a CPA, accountant or lawyer. I have no degree in political science or economics. I’m a high school grad with a couple years of college. I have no insider information on the inner workings of the federal government, but I’ve been challenged by several readers to be more specific in my column regarding sequestration and offer possible suggestions on how we go about easing the pain of reducing Uncle Sam’s spending by $85 billion. We all know there isn’t one single dollar the government spends that someone doesn’t think is critically important. But to set the stage for what we are up against, I urge you go watch this simple dramatization of our nation’s current $16 trillion+ debt at demonocracy.info. We must reduce our spending. Let me start by stating the obvious. I don’t know of one executive administrator who is responsible for managing anything who doesn’t want to control the checkbook and have some say in income generation. I can only come to one conclusion as to why the president isn’t coming forth with a plan. He wants nothing to do with leading the nation. His goal seems to be cuts must hurt, so make the cuts felt and then blame others for the pain. He also seems reluctant to put forth his own cost-saving solutions therefore avoiding any personal blame. This is the exact opposite of what a president should do. Harry Truman said it best: “The buck stops here.” With the limited information available to me, here are my recommendations if I were in the Oval Office. As a sign of good faith and leadership, we start at the White House. The best estimates I can find tell me it costs about $1.7 billion to run the White House. I’d immediately direct the WH staff, including the presidency, to trim 10 percent from all salaries associated with WH personnel, curtail all extraneous travel, including Air Force One and cut our operational spending by the same amount. I urge Congress to do the same 10 percent cut, and together we can lead the nation to a $1 billion savings. Leadership starts with the leaders. Next I’d turn to the nearly three million federal employees. We can either cut positions or we can all agree to take a 5 percent across-the-board pay deduction. It will save the American public about
$10 billion, and everyone gets to keep their jobs. I’m suggesting another $1 billion Dan Alexander saved from Thoughts from frugal efBehind the Pressline forts by cutting things like conference costs to office supplies and travel. In 2010, the Simpson Bolwes National Commission to reform government brought forth a plan that was not acted upon. I would instruct the heads of our 22 civilian and military departments to look at those recommendations and surgically trim their expenditure, not to include any staff reductions, but to trim 2 percent from other expenses, which should save about $48 billion. Over the years, we’ve repeatedly piled programs on top of pre-existing ones. We should begin today to identify these programs with an estimated goal of cutting $25 billion through the elimination of and merging of certain agencies. We must put Social Security and Medicare at the top of our lists to ensure their sustainability while reducing costs. Last year, more than two dozen Fortune 500 companies paid zero federal income tax, short changing the country by $20 billion. We must put an end to corporate welfare and preferential tax deals. Every American over age 18 must have a financial stake in our country, and I would propose a minimum citizen tax of $250 or about $4.80 a week. For each person over 18 years of age, if you’ve paid nothing into the system, the government will deduct $250 from your refund (benefit) check. That will raise $28 billion. With all Americans citizens and corporations now having a vested interest in our country, we can create a new culture to rein in costs and once again create a promising opportunity to the future generations.

Sun shines, smiles on Middlebury’s Chili Fest By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org MIDDLEBURY — It was optimal late winter, bordering on spring, weather for this year ’s Fifth Annual Vermont Chili Festival which returned to downtown Middlebury March 9. Five years ago, when the festival debuted, organizers held it during a dreary February. But with the calendar change to March the following year, things seemed to go swimmingly. This year ’s event included street jugglers, face painting, entertainment for kids, live music, a beverage tent, and
award-winning chili. For a nominal price, attendees were armed with beaded necklaces and spoons to sample chili from over 50 restaurants, caterers and amateurs from around the state. Music rocked attendees on both the upper and lower parts of Main Street and the Grift, an Addison County band and popular with the Two Brothers Tavern crowd, played in the beverage tent. Winners, who were named after this newspaper went to press, were named in the Best Beef Chili, Best Chicken Chili, Best Pork Chili, Best Game Chili, Best Veggie Chili, a best
‘Kitchen Sink’ category, and Best Overall Chili categories. The winners will be published in next week’s edition. A portion of the proceeds from this year ’s event benefited Addison County HOPE and CVOEO. For the children, as well as grown-up fire and police fans, members of the Middlebury Volunteer Fire Department returned with a display of a fully equipped fire truck and Middlebury Police Department officers sported a police cruiser. By early estimates, attendance at this year ’s chili fest has broken previous records with over 5,000 people milling around on Main Street and Merchants Row.

The town will take possession of the building in May and lease it to the Cavendish Historical Society. The society will prepare an exhibit about the famous author who lived in the town.
Proctor’s new budget lower than 2012 PROCTOR — Via voice votes, Proctor voters approved over $1 million worth of town, highway and library spending March 4. Voters approved the general fund budget of $748,835 plus the town highway budget of $409,187. The $63,846 library budget passed with 100 votes.

Vergennes voters say ‘no’ to police station VERGENNES — Vergennes voters narrowly defeated a plan to purchase land for a new police station. The current police station is housed in the Vergennes Opera House and has proven to be an embarrassment to theater goers who report seeing handcuffed individuals brought into the building while standing in line for an arts performance. Voters were asked to approve a bond not exceeding $1,850,000 to purchase land for the construction of a news police station. The vote was 292 “yes” to 302 “no”. William Benton won the mayoral vote defeating former Vergennes Mayor April Jin 459-122. William Poquette was elected lister by 513 votes. Christopher Bearor was elected lister by 492 votes.

Chafee Center, Castleton Gallery host art talks
EN GARDE! — Ryan Bagley of Middlebury fences against Walter Moore of Westport during the Central Vermont Fencing Club's annual tournament at Middlebury Junior High School, March 2-3.
RUTLAND — Chaffee Downtown Art Center in collaboration with the Castleton Downtown Gallery announced a series of Artist Talks; all talks run 7-8:30 p.m. April 16: Fran Bull, Deconstructing a Famous Poem: the Making of an Art Installation Bull will speak about the making of her art installation In Flanders Fields: a meditation on war, a work that combines sculpture, etching, film, and music. She will discuss the ways in which an installation differs conceptually, visually, and in terms of narrative content from an exhibition. Fran will show a renage of images, including studio shots of work in progress, photos of her working in the etching studio in Barcelona, installation shots from Castleton's Christine Price Gallery, WomanMade Gallery in Chicago and installed at the Marble St. Gallery of the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in West Rutland. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and to participate in the interactive aspect of the piece. May 7: Bill Ramage, Two Paths of Perception This lecture will attempt to make an Art Historical argument to consider the possibility that there might be another, fundamentally different way to think about how we see and interpret the visual world we live in. We will consider how many people processed visual information at different times in our history. We'll take a brief look at Classical Greece, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Impressionist, the first half of the Twentieth Century, and some Post Modern empiricist, including my notion of centripetal perspective. May 14: Steven Schaub, Leaping Outside the Box: Reimaging Photography Photography is dead, at least the photography that existed since Joseph Necephore Niepce made his first exposure in 1826; the same photography that led so many into the darkroom of trays and chemistry; the same photography that our grandparents used to produce endless carousels of slide shows on Kodachrome. So what is next? Photography has always been in the throes of change and evolution since its inception and this transformative, gutwrenching period is no different. Photography - as our collective nostalgic memory remembers it - is dead. The future promises to expand our definition of what a photograph will be. All talks will be held at Chaffee Downtown, 75 Merchants Row, in Rutland. Sponsored by the Castleton Downtown Gallery; Chaffee Downtown Art Center. Chaffee Gallery hours: Tuesday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-7 p.m.; closed Sunday and Monday; Castleton Gallery hours: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday 1-6 p.m.; Friday, 1-7 p.m.

Biomass Energy Center to bring jobs to depressed Fair Haven area waste water from the biomass power plant, Vermont Hydroponic Produce LLC plans to grow tomatoes and other vegetables yearround. "Our current Vermont business is ready to grow, to take-off really," said Jeff Jones, a Middlebury resident and managing partner of Vermont Hydroponic Produce. "By partnering with a renewable energy facility, we can turn low grade heat, which has little usefulness to the power or pellet manufacturing facility into our affordable energy. This is a great chance to grow our closed-loop, completely sustainable and renewable local food model," he added. Vermont Hydroponic Produce LLC will also site an expansion of their Growers Hub service at the Energy Center. Grower's Hub is the company's innovative, high-tech system that brokers the sale and transfer of locally grown food from smaller, independent
FAIR HAVEN â€” Rutland County will become home to a renewable energy-powered, year-round local food growing and wholesale Grower â€™s Hub under an agreement announced by Beaver Wood Energy and Vermont Hydroponic Produce LLC. The plan promises to add 300 new jobs to the areaâ€”25 jobs at the biomass power plant, 25 jobs at the pellet manufacturing facility,100 jobs at the greenhouses and Grower's Hub and another 150 jobs in the forest industry. Under the plan, Vermont Hydroponic Produce LLC, headquartered in Florence, will build a 10-acre greenhouse complex adjacent to the proposed Fair Haven Biomass Energy Center along U.S. Route 4 near the VermontNew York state line.

Children injured in Mount Holly crash Feb. 27 MT. HOLLY â€” On Feb. 27, members of the Mt. Holly Rescue Squad, Mt. Holly Fire Department, Hop-To-It Towing, and Vermont State Police responded to an accident on Route 103 at Bowlsville Road in Mt. Holly. The accident involved a single motor vehicle, in snowy conditions, with unknown injuries. Vermont State Police troopers found Robert T. Sennett, 60, of Bethel had been driving north on Route 103 when he attempted to slow down for a vehicle in front of him. Sennett lost control of his 2011 Honda Accord and struck a guardrail on the wrong side of the road. After this collision with the guardrail, Sennett's vehicle crossed back into its lane, off the roadway and into a group of trees where it came to rest. Sennett was transporting four passengers in his vehicle. Two passengers, children, ages 5 and 9, received bumps on their head. They were transported from the scene to the Rutland Regional Medical Center for evaluation. The five-yearold child was not using a child restraint as required by Vermont law. The accident remains under investigation, and any witnesses are asked to call the State Police Barracks in Rutland, Vermont 802-773-9101. The vehicle was removed by Hop To It Towing.

Middlebury town planner to retire By Lou Varricchio
firstname.lastname@example.org MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s Town Planner Fred Dunnington has served the municipality and helped craft the vision of town planning for 32 years. In a notice submitted to town officials, Dunnington said he plans to retire July 1. “Fred's dedication to the town and its residents, attention to detail and knowledge of the Town of Middlebury—both current and historic— are truly valued and will be missed,” according to Town manager Kathleen Ramsay. Dunnington was the key player on a number of successful town projects including, most recently the new Cross Street Bridge and Pulp Mill Bridge renovation construction projects. At a Middlebury Select Board meeting Feb. 26, town officials thanked Dunnington for his public service and wished him well. “We wish Fred the very best of luck as he sets sail,” Ramsay said.

Growing the green in the Green Mt. State for St. Patrick’s Day Green Scene
By Dr. Leonard Perry University of Vermont
You don't have to be Irish to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, nor do you need a green thumb to grow shamrocks indoors. This plant, which is associated with this March 17 holiday, is quite easy to grow. Shamrocks are a member of the Oxalis (wood sorrel) family, which contains more than 300 species. Most of these grow from small bulbs although some have tuberous roots. The distinguishing characteristic is the three rounded or triangular-shaped leaves at the end of delicate stems. Most oxalis plants fold up their leaves at night, hugging them tight to the stems until daylight "wakes them up" again—described botanically as “nyctinastic movement.” Due to oxylates in plants, they may be toxic to cats, dogs, and horses if ingested in large quantities. The familiar St. Patrick's Day species (Oxalis acetosella) is available at florist shops and many grocery stores this time of year. It has tiny, dark green, triangular leaves and grows to a height of about six inches. This variety hails from Europe, Iceland, and Asia. It is not the official Irish shamrock (Trifolium dubium), a yellow-flowered clover or trefoil, which is what the majority feel is the authentic species. That clover is difficult to grow indoors, so nurseries and florists sell Oxalis plants instead. If you are wondering how the shamrock became part of Irish history, there are many explanations going back to the significance placed by the ancient Celtic peoples in the number three. The most popular story is that St. Patrick, who is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland in the second half of the fifth century, once plucked a shamrock from the grass at his feet to illustrate the doctrine of the Holy Trinity to his congregation. St. Patrick's Day, which is celebrated on the anniversary of his death, also heralds the arrival of spring. The shamrock was adopted
The leaf of a trifolium shamrock reopens to the sun after a shower. Some of the drops of water have a strange optical effect making them look like they are floating. Gardeners can try their hand at growing genuine Irish shamrocks indoors and outside. Photo courtesy of Supportstorm. as a symbol of both this patron saint and the "season of rebirth," and can be seen on ancient coins and medieval tombs. Shamrocks like cool air, moist soil (except in their dormant period), and bright light. Ideal temperatures are between 50 and 65 degrees (F), and over 75 degrees may cause plants to become dormant. Soils should not be kept too wet or waterlogged. If the plant yellows, it may be getting too much water
and roots may rot. Too little water and it obviously wilts. Too little light, or too much warmth, and plants may get tall and lanky. They do not have an extensive root system, so unlike many plants, actually prefer to be crowded in a pot. However, if the plant dries out too quickly, you may need to move it into a larger pot. Fertilize every two to three weeks while the plant is actively growing or flowering, using regular houseplant
fertilizer. For application rate, follow directions on the container. Be aware that no matter how much care you give this plant, at times it will look sick and lose its leaves. This dormant period, which often occurs during summer, is part of the growing process common to all plants grown from bulbs. During dormancy, stop watering. Let the leaves die back naturally, then remove dead, brown leaves. Place the plant in a cool, dark place while it goes through its dormancy period. Plants generally "sleep" for about three months. New green shoots signal that the plant is waking up and needs to be moved back into the light. To divide your shamrocks, wait until the bulbs reach the end of a dormant cycle. Take them out of the pot, and remove small side bulbs. Then replant, just under the surface, in a mix of potting soil and sand. Place in a non-south facing window. Water, keeping the surface just moist to the touch, until plants become established. Other Oxalis varieties have similar growth requirements though many go through a shorter, or no, dormancy period. Depending on the variety, the plant may have yellow, white, pink, purple, or red flowers and grow as tall as 10 inches. Leaf color ranges from dark green to deep red. Those with dark red or purplish leaves only need about a month of dormancy. Whether you are giving or getting shamrocks this St. Patrick's Day, there's one more thing to keep in mind. Because these plants go dormant, shamrocks are not suitable for growing with other houseplants in mixed pots or planters. If you get a mixed basket of plants, after the holiday, separate the shamrock from the rest and replant in its own container. Don't wait until the plant turns yellow or sickly looking. By then, its roots will be deeply intertwined with the roots of other plants and will be difficult to transplant. By giving your Shamrock plant bright light, even moisture, and cool temperatures, and letting it go dormant during summer, it should provide years of enjoyment.

Acclaimed organist returns to Middlebury Nathan Laube concert will celebrate Bach’s birthday MIDDLEBURY — Considering Johann Sebastian Bach’s reputation as both an organist and an organ composer, it seems only fitting to host an organ recital on his birthday. Musician Nathan Laube will bring this organ music to life in a concert of Bach, Widor,
Mendelssohn, and more on Thursday, March 21 at Middlebury College’s Mead Memorial Chapel. Laube has joined the organ world’s elite performers as a star among young classical musicians. His brilliant playing, creative programming, and gracious demeanor have thrilled audiences, including Middlebury’s, and have earned high praise from critics and peers alike. The artist will also offer a 6:45
Sick students: Bridport School cleaned By Lou Varricchio
email@example.com BRIDPORT — The outbreak of an illness, forced the closing of the Bridport Central School, located on U.S. Route 22A in Bridport, according to Addison Supervisory Union Superintendent Dr. Gail Conley. An anonymous mother of a student at the school first reported the incident to the Eagle March 6. Conley told the Eagle that 75 percent of the students were home sick from Wednesday through Friday. Some teachers and staff were also affected There was no clear reason for the illnesses, according to Conley, but she said that the school would be closed through March 8 for cleaning. The healthy students that arrived at the school March 6 were sent home immediately, a parent told the Eagle. Vermont Department of Health officials collected samples around the school for testing. An official said the illness is probably linked to a stomach flu.
p.m. pre-concert lecture prior to the 7:30 p.m. performance. In an effort to introduce a wider audience to this beautiful music, and to Mead Chapel’s extraordinary Gress-Miles organ, the Middlebury College Performing Arts Series is offering a “bring a friend” promotion for this concert, where patrons purchasing one ticket can receive a second ticket for free. A native of Chicago, Laube began piano study at age five; he later attended the Chicago Academy for the Arts. Upon graduating the renowned Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Laube received the Institute’s two highest awards: the Landis Award for Excellence in Academics, and the Aldwell Award for Excellence in Musical Studies. Since then he has won first place at the National Albert Schweitzer Organ Competition (2004), and the Chicago American Guild of Organists/Quimby Regional Competition for Young Organists (2007). He has performed at many of the most prestigious music venues in the United States and Europe, including Washington, D.C’s National Cathedral, Exeter Cathedral, Truro Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, the Kimmel Center ’s Verizon Hall (Philadelphia), Spivey Hall, and Carnegie Hall. Although Laube’s vast repertoire spans the works of preBaroque to living composers, he has become known for his colorful and virtuosic transcriptions of orchestral works by Bach, Mahler, Rossini, and Strauss.
Nathan Laube Laube has been a featured performer at the 2009, 2011, and 2012 national conventions of the Organ Historical Society, the American Guild of Organists’ 2010 national convention in Washington D.C., and more recently at the Guild’s 2012 national convention in Nashville where he performed with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. Concert tickets are $20 for the general public; $15 for Middlebury College faculty, staff, alumni, emeriti, and other ID card holders; and $6 for Middlebury College students; with the “Bring-a-Friend” promotion, patrons can buy one ticket, and get a second free.

HINESBURG — Vermont Gas official Steve Wark announced that the Burlington-area company will change a segment of its 42-mile-long proposed Addison Natural Gas Project pipeline route. The announcement, made on a local public radio program March 6, followed complaints by several residents; they didn't like the pipeline being planned near their homes. The proposed line is supposed to follow the current utility corridor that exists in the Hinesburg-Monkton-New Haven area. Many Monkton residents expressed their concerns during Town Meeting about the pipeline's route in their part of Chittenden County. Some of the residents have said they are considering forming a legal defense fund to protect community interests in the multi-county construction project. The proposed pipeline extension was designed to first satisfy International Paper's needs across Lake Champlain in Ticonderoga, N.Y. In addition, the potential for developing other business and private users along the way promises to be a financial boon for Vermont Gas. According to Town Meeting discussions, Hinesburg residents are also concerned about town permits issued for construction of the pipeline in their community.

‘Fiddlesticks’ boast local musicians MONKTON — The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s “Fiddlesticks!” String Trio will present performances at schools in Addison, Ferrisburgh, and Monkton on March 21. The VSO’s traveling ensembles visit all corners of the state as part of an outreach program known as “Musicians-in-the-Schools.” These lively performances are met with overwhelming enthusiasm, as the musical ambassadors spread the word that classical music can be fun! Members of “Fiddlesticks” are David Gusakov, of Bristol, violin, Hilary Hatch, of Leicester, viola, and Bonnie Klimowski, of Fairfax, cello. Their dynamic performances are designed to introduce children to the most important members of the symphony orchestra and to
make some of the key concepts in classical music-making come alive. Longtime members of the VSO, the performers are funny, friendly, interactive—and wonderful musicians.

KILLINGTON — For native Vermonter Max Elles, life is indeed worth celebrating. The University of Vermont student suffered a winter-sports injury two days after Christmas but his “can do” attitude is the fuel motivating him to get back to doing the things he loves in life. Elles was born, raised and educated in Killington, a tight community where skis, snowboards, and snowmobiles are as plentiful as 4WD SUVs and pickup trucks with snowplows—maybe more so. So, it was only natural that Elles learn a variety of winter sports and make them a part of his life. Elles is a Sherburne Elementary School and Woodstock High School alumnus; he also spent four winter seasons at Killington Mountain School. He is also known for his winter-sports skills—having competed competitively for many years. He twice placed second in the USSA Nationals and also competed in the NORAM series. On Dec. 27, 2012, Elles sustained a serious spinal injury while riding with friends at Killington. He had two major surgeries at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital, and then was moved to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. There, he spent a month undergoing a program of challenging rehabilitation. According to family friend Nancy Schmitt-Mosher, Elles has returned home and is continuing his rehab at Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor. “Fortunately for Max, there is no paralysis, but he is learning to walk again and has a very long road to recovery ahead,” Schmitt-Moser said. The Elles family is owner of the First Stop Ski Ship and Board Barn. In a community effort to help both Max Elles and the family through their ordeal, a special community benefit event—called the Max Elles Benefit—will be held Sunday, April 7, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Foundry at Summit Pond in Killington. Donations will be accepted at the door, according to Schmitt-Moser and the event will include hors d'oeuvres, live music, a silent auction, balloon prizes, a raffle, and magic by Killington entertainer Steve Finer. Prizes include a 2013-14 Killington SevenDay Blackout Pass, a Snow Cat Ride, skis and ski gear, and more. Regarding the community coming together to help Elles, Schmitt-Mosher said she and the family are staggered by the kind support. “We are so fortunate to live in a community filled with such kind and caring people. The response has been overwhelming,” she said. For more information about the benefit, call 802-422-3035.

Rutland leaders discuss economic woes, promises From News & Staff Reports
email@example.com RUTLAND — A four-member panel organized and moderated by Bruce Lisman of the Campaign for Vermont spent the evening at South Station Restaurant last week discussing challenges to Rutland County’s economic security and prosperity, as well as possible solutions. The panel members cited several persistent challenges: underemployment, low property values, limited communication among towns and school districts. Additionally, the area lacks a major university and some transportation infrastructure enjoyed by Burlington and other nearby metro areas, such as an international airport and an Interstate highway. On the plus side, Rutland County has significant assets such as the Stafford Tech Center, which Lisman and the panel agreed is among the best technical training schools in Vermont; significant current and future energy investments; a rebounding manufacturing sector; and young, enthusiastic and diversifying farmers. “For the restaurant business, Rutland is a tough place,” Bill Gillam, co-owner of South Station, said. “Unemployment is high, with companies leaving a little bit at a time, not all at once. People are fed up that despite all of their hard work, property values are going down.” Lyle Jepson of the Stafford Technical Center shared the concern about property values. He bought his home for $207,000 and then invested thousands in energy efficiency and other improvements. Hoping to recoup his investment, he was dismayed when
a real estate agent suggested he list it for only $174,000. “People are leaving the state, our population is declining,” he said. Lisman, who organized the forum, noted Vermont’s declining population is perhaps its most significant challenge and the most obvious symptom of the need for change. Ludy Biddle of Neighborworks said her organization is making homes more valuable, and saving homeowners money now, by improving energy efficiency. Her organization has used a $4.5 million federal grant to help retrofit 600 homes in and around Rutland County, with an average savings of 391 gallons of heating fuel per year. “That’s money that isn’t leaving Rutland County to pay for oil,” she said. Another hopeful sign is the rejuvenated farmers’ market, she said. “It’s an extraordinary outpouring of enthusiasm and creativity that moved that farmers’ market into the building, clearing the debris away.” Farmers are getting younger, she noted. The Vermont Secretary of Agriculture recently drew cheers from a large crowd of young farmers when he said, “the best years of Vermont agriculture are ahead of us,” she reported. Biddle also noted that Green Mountain Power is honoring its commitment turn Rutland into Vermont’s “Solar City”. Picking up on the subject of energy, Rutland Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Jamie Stewart expressed strong support for the arrival of natural gas to the Rutland area. “We need to get energy costs down,” he
said. “We need to get natural gas into the region.” The presence of natural gas draws new business, Stewart added. An executive for a national specialty foods processor told Stewart that his company insists on natural gas service. Service to Rutland is five to seven years away, Stewart predicted. Positive change for air travel also is on the way, Stewart said. Rutland’s airport is the most-used regional facility in Vermont. A runway extension and corporate hangers will be built soon. A new terminal is on the way. A vaunted blue-collar manufacturing area for generations, Rutland is now on the rebound after years of job losses, Stewart noted. He cited growth at General Electric, which had fallen from about 2500 employees to as low as 950, but is now on the rise. One contractor to GE has grown from 45 to 250 employees. These businesses are “leaner, more efficient, and modernized,” he said. Also, local banks are more eager to loan money because many local businesses have enjoyed a year or more of positive profit and loss statements. In fact, the Rutland area’s biggest economic challenge is the shortfall in skilled workers needed to sustain a growing manufacturing sector. “I see that as the number one challenge going forward,” he said, pointing again to the need to reverse the state’s population trends. All the panelists agreed that the Stafford Technical Center would play a large role in solving that particular problem. Lisman enthused about his visit earlier in the day to the regional tech center, noting the happy,
hard-working student body. Jepson said, “I would like to think Stafford Tech is a bullet on the economic resume of the county.” It was observed that Stafford Tech offers an evening program that provides customized training to the needs of local industry. For example, it has begun a program to train welders for Hubbardton Forge. The panel also discussed the tradeoffs involved in “regionalizing” school and public safety services – savings on administration and coordination of services on the plus side, and loss of local control on the other.

Conference hosts student chefs MIDDLEBURY — On April 4, Addison County’s school community will come together for an evening of inspiration, celebration and networking at the fourth annual Stone Soup Summit. The Addison County Relocalization Network will present the conference from 3:15 to 7 p.m. at Mt. Abe High School on Thursday, April 4, with the opening remarks beginning at 3:30.
Solar power firm plans local focus with Vermont-made arrays email@example.com MIDDLEBURY — With several in-state competitors aggressively marketing solar-power installation services to consumers in Addison and Rutland counties, and beyond, the movement to convert Vermont homes and businesses to sun power is experiencing boom times. Several Vermont firms are competing to install solar arrays at “no cost” to the consumer. Now officials AllEarth Renewables have announced its newest incentive to get more residents on board in the region. Similar to other competitors, AllEarth officials said their firm’s new “residential lease” program offers a no cost lease
for homeowners to net meter with solar at or below their electric rates and be given the opportunity to own the system at a significantly reduced cost after seven years. The installations consist of between one to four Vermontmanufactured AllSun solar trackers. The lease payments under both options will be at or below the customer ’s electricity savings, producing a zero netcost agreement, company officials claim. “As a local manufacturer, we are excited to again be able to offer to our Vermont customers a financing option for residential, business and community projects, giving them the opportunity to net meter their energy and produce immediate savings on their electric bills,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables. The solar projects feature a dual-axis tracker made by All-
Sun which was designed and manufactured in Williston; the device produces up to 45 percent more energy than fixed rooftop solar. The same solar tracker won a national Green Product of the Year Award last year AllEarth has already partnered with Green Lantern Capital, National Life, and Green Mountain Power, to finance projects for the City of Rutland, Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury, Woods Market Garden in Brandon, and the Town of Williston. Several other Vermont firms and multiplicities have partnered with AllEarth recently: Concept2, Small Dog Electronics, Green Mountain Power, and the Merchants Bank, Vermont institutions—Middlebury College and the University of Vermont—the municipalities of Starksboro, Hinesburg, and Rutland.
Brandon artist uses a computer as an art tool BRANDON — Brandon-based artist Fran Bull isn't shy when it comes to art. She utilizes both the human and electronic to create dazzling art pieces that loom large. Her eclectic Brandon studio has the setting for visual as well as performing artistry. A recent exhibit by Bull that received a lot of local attention was held at Castleton State College. The exhibit depicted a series of
drawings executed in a single day in August—Aug. 15 to be exact. She creatively used a computer scanner and various enlarging techniques to create large-format drawings the inspire the mind and capture the eye. The premise is Bull's creation of large-format drawings is to employ computer tools while preserving a fresh and intuitive sensibility, she said.
“It was an idea I shared with gallery director Bill Ramage when I showed the Flanders Fields installation,” Bull said. ”Bill, ever the lover of experiments in art, replied with the classic Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland movie line, ‘Let’s put on a show!’...” To see Bull’s work or to learn more about what’s doing at the Gallery in the Field, call 802-247-0125.
Fran Bull’s Gallery in the Field in Brandon is the scene of much creative activity in the area. Aside from the visual arts, performing artists also make their way to Bull’s inspiring setting. Here Joe Deleault (piano), Don Davis (sax) perform “The Blue Cat Walks the Earth”. File photo

Guest Viewpoint Keeping graduates in Vermont Yogi Berra once said of a favorite restaurant, “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” Today, something like the opposite might be said of Vermont. If our state is really the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family, how come fewer people are choosing to live here, work here and raise families here? And, why is this particularly true of our best and brightest young people? According to the U.S. Census, in 20112012, while the rest of the country was growing, Vermont suffered a net loss of 581 citizens, or a 0.09% decline in our overall population. The only other state to lose population was Rhode Island, which shrank by 0.03%. Over the past dozen years (since the passage of Act 60) our K-12 population has plummeted from 106,000 to roughly 85,000, which reflects the fact that it’s really the young parents of these kids who are bugging out for a better future somewhere else, and taking their offspring with them. So, what it is that’s driving young, welleducated people away? The best skiing and boarding in the East? The great mountain biking? The vibrant local food scene? The finest micro-breweries in the country? The low crime rate? Probably not. Granted, there
are some folks who grew up down on the farm and are anxious to see Paris and nothing in the world could keep them here through another Vermont winter. But, you have to think that for every one of these, there is at least another who’s spent her whole life breathing that stuff that spews out of New York City grates and is eager to experience a lung-full of clean, mountain air. We’re losing the former, but we’re not gaining the latter. There has to be a reason. Is it the job market? Not really. Though it could be better, the biggest complaint we hear from the Vermont business community is that there are not enough highly skilled workers willing to fill the jobs they’re offering. Is it our students? No. Our schools continually rank in the top five nationally. Even the conservative-leaning American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) placed Vermont’s education performance at #2 in the nation. Our students are not the dummies— it’s our politicians. The fact of the matter is that Vermont’s progressive tax, regulatory, healthcare, land use, and energy policies are driving up the cost of living, and driving our young, educated workforce out of the state. Who wants to work or start a business or put down roots in a state that punishes success and whose guiding governing principle is to redistribute what you earn to someone else? Jeff Wennberg, writing for Vermonters for
Healthcare Freedom, recently pointed to data from National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) that shows, “between 2005 and 2007, the most recent period available, Vermont suffered an estimated net loss of 704 people between the ages of 22 and 39. Among those with a high school degree and some college the loss was 44 individuals. But within this same age group Vermont suffered a net loss of 1,044 people with associate’s degrees or above. Over the same period Vermont imported a net 498 twenty-two to thirty-nine year olds with less than a high school diploma.” Gov. Shumlin’s notion that we can fix this problem by investing more in public education, especially preschool programs, is like proposing to fix a leaky bucket by adding more water. We may improve the quality of our graduates. We may even take over the number one spot in the ALEC ranking from Massachusetts. (A debate for another column.) But, we’ll only be paying top dollar to shore up Texas’, North Carolina’s and other pro-growth-oriented states’ future work forces. That’s where our highly qualified graduates will continue to go. Governor Shumlin’s other proposal, what he calls the Vermont Strong Scholars Program, to pay graduates to stay in Vermont by covering the cost of their final year of school is a pretty hollow as well. The 2013-2014 tu-
ition at Johnson State College is, for example, $9,312. Paid back over five years, that’s $1,862 per year. Now, compare that to what a graduate would bank in a lifetime of working in a state that has zero income tax, a health insurance market that doesn’t costshift ruthlessly onto the young through community rating and guaranteed issue, no renewable energy mandates driving up their electric bills. It’s not a contest. In fact, if Vermont passes the proposed sugar sweetened beverage tax, $140 of that $1,862 (nearly 8 percent) would be needed just to cover the tax on a couple of 20 oz. sodas a day. If you really want young people to stay, work, and raise families in Vermont, here are some better ideas. Let them keep more of what they earn over their lifetimes. Don’t try to micromanage their behavior and choices through the tax code. They are bright enough to make decisions for themselves. Allow the marketplace to create affordable, middle class housing, and reform the property tax system to make that affordable housing actually affordable. In short, leave them at liberty to pursue happiness. With that formula, you might even get some of the older folks to stick around as well. Rob Roper President Ethan Allen Institute Montpelier
