By Angelo Lynn



Gov. Douglas’ announcement that he will not run again for governor catches the state’s political gurus off-guard. Nearly everyone thought he would run for a fifth term and, most likely, win.

Table Talk: Not-so-fried green tomatoes

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it.

With tomato and potato crops being hit right and left by late blight, the usual abundance of these late summer days has taken a hit. Even though the end of summer has brought some drier weather (knock on wood), the disease is still affecting tomato and potato plants in the area.

Snaphots: John Lee

Posted on August 23, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



John Lee fought many battles, braving hand-to-hand combat with steely sabers and charging horses — the kinds of battles fought more than a hundred years ago.

Lee doesn’t know why he became a Civil War reenactor in 1996, only that it “was just something that was inside [him], like anything else.” And though he has spent the past three years away from reenacting to become a certified nurse, Lee stormed the battlefield for about eight years as a part of the First Vermont Cavalry Company K.

Table Talk: Simple Italian Cooking

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it.

“In Italy, if you have bad food, it is not a good day,” said Carla Guglielmino.

Guglielmino is the Italian culture consultant and director of the Italian childrens’ school at the Middlebury College summer language schools, which wrapped up last week. To her, there are just a few rules of good Italian cooking.

“The oil must be a very good oil,” she explained, “and the tomatoes must be fresh. And you have to understand that pasta must be cooked al dente.”

Snapshots: Hank Dimuzio

Posted on August 14, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



Two years ago a Valentine’s Day blizzard swept through Middlebury, leaving behind a wall of snow.

For Hank Dimuzio, this was a problem.

His eight-foot high wire fences, designed to keep his herd of fallow deer inside, now rose a stunted four feet to Dimuzio’s shoulder as the snow created an icy stepladder to the other side. Dimuzio was astonished to find most of his herd huddled under their shelter near the top of his farm. But others were stranded on the outskirts of the far paddock where a grove of evergreens provided shelter.

Monkton woman wins EPA video contest

By Kathryn Flagg



MONKTON — When Monkton resident Nora Parren was casting around for a way to drum up scholarship money, the Vassar College student assumed she’d be left to writing essays until the end of time.

So when she stumbled across a contest sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency challenging students to create videos promoting water quality, Parren was pleasantly surprised. A hobby animator, for some time she’d been making stop-motion videos in her dorm room.

Table Talk: Gardening for savings

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

“The old Pennsylvania Dutch, they waste nothing,” said Don Rinker.

He and his wife Eileen grew up in northern Pennsylvania gardening, preserving and freezing all summer to prepare for the winters. They retired to New Haven in 2000, bringing with them the frugal traditions they had always practiced.

Don showed me the dryer that he and his wife Eileen use to preserve the wax beans they grow: It is a broad metal pan with a walled off corner for water.

Snapshots: Lucien Paquette

Posted on August 7, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



One day out of the year, a fair came to Craftsbury, Vermont. Adelard and Mary Paquette lived on a modest farm about five miles from Craftsbury Common, where the fair was held. Their seven children looked forward to the fair, and though the Great Depression wringed wallets dry, Mary gave her third son Lucien a quarter to spend on sweets at the festival. Lucien returned later that day with 20 cents and a five-cent pack of chewing gum for his mother.
