Sox may win with motley 'deputation'

Posted on October 8, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



Watching the red Sox most nights this summer, I have concluded that they really are an “Anacharsis Clootz Deputation.”

Come to think about it, all sports teams are Anacharsis Clootz Deputations, more or less.
What in the world is an Anacharsis Clootz Deputation?

That’s how Herman Melville in “Moby Dick” described the multicultural crew on the ship, the Pequod: they were “from all the isles of the sea, and all the ends of the earth.”

It basically means a motley crew, in our everyday lexicon. Mostly, I like to say it: “Anacharsis Clootz Deputation.”

ADDISON COUNTY — America’s next test kitchen may just be Vermont, if New Haven State Rep. Chris Bray has anything to say about it.

Arguing that a little state can be the perfect proving ground for new federal programs, Bray is eyeing a possible pilot project with the United States Department of Agriculture to help Vermont get more fresh, local foods into Vermont schools.

Middlebury rail tunnel under green considered

MIDDLEBURY — Local, state and Vermont Railway officials are exploring the concept of installing a concrete tunnel beneath the railroad bridges at Merchants Row and Main Street in downtown Middlebury.

This new tunnel, officials believe, could provide a perfect fix for the two ailing bridges while allowing enough vertical clearance to accommodate double-stack freight cars that railway officials need to run from Whitehall, N.Y., to Burlington.

“It seems like (a tunnel) is a solution that meets everyone’s needs,” Middlebury Town Manager Bill Finger said on Monday.

Vermont clinics hit by flu vaccine delay

Posted on October 8, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Kim Farnsworth, who works in the front office at Mountain Health Center in Bristol, said the phones have been ringing off the hook with patients trying to track down a dose of the seasonal flu vaccine.

But right now, the clinic has bad news for those patients: Mountain Health Center, like many organizations in Addison County, still hasn’t received any shipments of the seasonal flu vaccine, let alone the H1N1 swine flu vaccine. So Farnsworth is taking down names and phone numbers, and she’s telling patients that the clinic will call when they can schedule flu shots.

MIDDLEBURY — State Sen. Doug Racine, D-Richmond, came within a few percentage points of becoming Vermont’s governor in 2002. He lost that race to current Gov. James Douglas, but is banking on being on the positive side of the voting ledger against a different field of opponents next year.

Racine, one of the first declared gubernatorial candidates for 2010, discussed his candidacy and the issues that he believes will shape the race, during a far ranging interview at the Addison Independent on Monday.
