What Town Meeting Means

first_imgIndulge me for a moment while I share with you one of the best Town Meeting Day stories ever written. Dorothy Canfield Fisher told the story in her 1953 tribute to Vermont, called Vermont Tradition. Fisher (1879-1958) was one of the country s most popular novelists, but her heart was deeply rooted in Arlington. This story the story of Patrick Thompson s speech at an Arlington Town Meeting is one of the great Vermont classics.From Vermont Tradition: This was no academic discussion group debating the abstract proposition: Resolved that every child has the right to four years schooling beyond the eighth grade. This was a fight over action to be taken now going into debt for an ideal, an ideal which is almost the only primal urge for which humanity need never blush sacrifice by the old, to give the children a better chance.Those voters who believed the town could never raise the extra money required for building and upkeep, they were sincere in their mournful admission that, what with wretched train service, hardly any automobiles, the nearest existing public high school might almost as well be fifty miles off as the actual twelve miles of unplowed winter snow drifts, and spring mud-holes. But with even more bitter sincerity, they listed our community s urgent material needs one after another. The hill roads should be resurfaced, or they would wash out to stony trails. Care for the sick poor was more costly every year. But above all the bridges.In a mountain town with flash floods roaring over the banks of its water courses after hard rains, bridges have an imperious priority. Our bridges need reinforcement, not only from recurring high water, but against the great tonnage of modern traffic. It would be dangerous not to rebuild them. It would take all of the resources of a poor mountain town to keep our bridges in repair. To add to that expense the enormous cost of a new school insane!The tangible needs of the body and the impalpable needs of the mind and spirit stood up to see which was the stronger. The material needs outshouted the ideal. They sounded real and actual. The little flickering flame of responsibility for the future of the town s children died down to a faint glimmer in the hearts of the men and women whose voters would in a few minutes make the decision. Those who had longed and worked for the school sat silent, disconcerted by the predicted crashing of the bridges, loud in their ears. What could be said against that?Then up sprang Patrick Thompson yes, you are right in guessing from his name that he was Irish, was Catholic, was only one generation away from those who drank stinking water from the ship s barrel, long strings of green slime hanging down to the floor, as they struggled on towards the New World and Vermont. He had worked his way up to partnership in one of our two grocery stores. What education he had it was sound he had received in our public schools. We usually saw him in a white apron, standing behind the counter, selling sugar and tea. We have never forgotten and we will never let our children forget how he looked that day, his powerful shoulders squared, his hands clenched. We still remember his exact words, intense as the flame of a blowtorch: We are being told that our town cannot afford to keep its bridges safe and also to provide for its children a preparation for life that will give them a fair chance alongside other American children. That s what we are being told. Not one of us here really believes it. We just can t think what to say back. But suppose it were true Then I say, if we have to choose, Let the bridges fall down. What kind of town would we rather have, fifty years from now a place where nitwit folks go back and forth over good bridges? Or a town with brainy, well-educated people capable of holding their own in the modern way of life? You know which of those two is really wanted by every one of us here. I say, Let the bridges fall down!He took his seat in silence, the American citizen, the Celt, whose grandparents had lived in enforced ignorance.It was a turning point in the life of our town. We knew it was. So we spoke not a word. We sat silent, thinking. And feeling. What we felt, with awe, as though we saw it with our physical eye was in all our human hearts, the brave burning up to new brightness of the ideal.Presently, the Moderator said in the traditional phrase, Any further discussion? The silence was unbroken. Then Forward your ballots. In a silent line the grave faced voters moved slowly towards the ballot box, each hand holding a white paper.The school was built. Years later it burned, and was replaced, almost without opposition, by an even better one. The first battle had been conclusive. As we old timers look at the building, our hearts bursting with thanksgiving, we can see clearly as if actually carved on the lintel, LET THE BRIDGES FALL DOWN!*****The story of Patrick Thompson comes to mind each March, as we gather in town halls and schools for town meetings.This year, though, the story resonates even deeper. Vermont faces incredibly difficult choices. Sure, there is still a division over whether money should go to schools or bridges, but the choices are much more nuanced than that. And there are so many choices to be made.Our resources are limited; our needs are great. And the choice still boils down to the way Fisher described it more than a half century ago: The tangible needs of the body and the impalpable needs of the mind stood up to see which was the stronger. The material needs outshouted the ideal.In our debate this year we must be careful to weigh the merits to seek the balance and not be swayed by who shouts the loudest.Chris Graff, a former Vermont bureau chief of The Associated Press and host of VPT’s Vermont This Week, is now vice president for communications at National Life Group.

Research finds fossil fuel divestment not a drag on investment returns

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Quartz:Norway built a $1 trillion sovereign wealth fund on oil and gas revenues. Last year, however, the country’s central bank recommended that the fund divest the $35 billion worth of stocks it held in oil and gas companies like Shell, Total, BP, Chevron, and ExxonMobil. The move would make “the government’s wealth less vulnerable to a permanent drop in oil and gas prices,” the bank said.Norway’s government, by contrast, has other ideas. Last week, a government-appointed commission dismissed the advice on divestment. “A sale of energy stocks would challenge the current investment strategy of the fund, with broad diversification of the investments and a high threshold for exclusion,” the commission said in a report. The fund’s existing investment strategy, it noted, is “simple, well founded and has served the fund well.”So, what effect would divesting from oil companies have on the fund? Research by Jeremy Grantham, founder of Grantham, Mayo, and van Otterloo (GMO), a Boston-based fund manager that manages more than $100 billion in assets, suggests not much. “If investors take out fossil fuel companies from their portfolios, their starting assumption should not be that you have destroyed the value,” he wrote in June. “Their starting assumption should that it will have very little effect.”Grantham based that conclusion on an experiment. He took the performance of the S&P 500 and separated its components into 10 sectors. He then systematically removed one sector and calculated the annualized rate of return over long periods of time. Removing energy stocks meant little to overall returns over the past 20 years. And the results hold over even longer periods, too.Beyond not making much of a difference to long-term returns, Grantham has another argument in favor of divesting from fossil fuels. In an essay titled The Race of Our Lives, published earlier this month, he wrote: “The energy sector will be the first example of much more significant mispricing than any sector in the past due to oil companies not bending with the economic winds but fighting them all the way.”Norway’s finance minister says that the fund will take into consideration the conflicting advice of the central bank and the government-appointed commission before making a decision on fossil-fuel divestment this autumn.More: Divesting from fossil fuels doesn’t hurt long-term returns Research finds fossil fuel divestment not a drag on investment returnslast_img read more

MotoGP races in Germany, Netherlands and Finland cancelled

first_imgTopics : The first eight rounds of the 2020 season had already been cancelled or postponed.While the next race still standing on the calendar is the GP of the Czech Republic at Brno on August 9, Ezpeleta on Monday suggested trying to start the season at the end of July in Europe, adding that the most likely scenario was a race without spectators.He said “the most important thing” was to “organize races and broadcast them on television”.Later Wednesday, he admitted: “In the worst case, if it’s not possible to travel outside of Europe, we’ll at least keep a Championship of least 10 to 12 races between the end of July and the end of November.”Ezpeleta also said that the numbers of people allowed to be in the paddock will be restricted.For a MotoGP factory team, the limit will be 40, for satellite or independent teams in the elite class it will be 25.In Moto2, the number will be 20 while a maximum of 15 will be allowed for Moto3.”Then there will be, of course, all the people who produce the television signal; all this crew, then the minimum number of people from Dorna who are in charge of race organization,” he added.”This will give us an average of around 1600 people. This is the possibility to control the MotoGP family. Unfortunately at the moment there will be no media and no TV. “Maybe, but not sure, maybe some photographers to supply images to everybody.” The Finnish race was scheduled to be held for the first time at the brand new KymiRing from July 10-12.All three countries have prohibited large gatherings to combat the spread of coronavirus.”It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of these three important Grands Prix,” Dorna’s CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta said in a statement.”We very much look forward to returning to the Sachsenring and the TT Circuit Assen in 2021, and eagerly await the Grand Prix debut of the new KymiRing next season.”center_img The MotoGP races in Germany, the Netherlands and Finland in June and July have been cancelled, the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) and promoter Dorna Sports announced on Wednesday.”The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has obliged the cancellation of all three events,” they said in a joint statement.The German Grand Prix was scheduled from June 19-21 at the Sachsenring and the Dutch MotoGP from June 26-28 at Assen, the only circuit to have hosted a motorcycle grand prix every year since the championship began in 1949.last_img read more

Zoners Approve Holy Cross Expansion

first_imgRUMSON —  On Monday, the borough zoning board unanimously approved a modified plan for the expansion of Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church.According to Rev. Michael Manning, the parish sought to expand the church to accommodate an increase in the number of parishioners attending weekly services.The vote to affirm the application following a relatively brief meeting of less than 90-minutes that included some discussion about handicapped parking and a few comments from neighbors about the project.Prior to the vote, board members offered their support for the project and commended the parish’s efforts to scale back the project as it was first proposed about a decade ago.Board member Scott Thompson called the church’s presentation over the course of the three recent hearings “very professional.”“I think the parish knows what the constituents need,” offered Board Chairman Alex Shanley.Three Ward Ave. residents expressed concerns over the size of the project, the amount of lot coverage and traffic flow in and out of the school.John Grossarth, who lives across from the church, voiced the strongest objections about the size of the expansion, saying, “To allow the town to pave more of God’s green earth is upsetting to me,” Grossarth said prior to the board’s vote.“It’s not as big as we would have liked, perhaps,” said the Rev. Michael Manning, who has been pastor since 2004, “but it’s beautiful,” he said, noting that the modified plan meets the criteria of providing “beauty, function and capacity.”The expansion, Manning told the board back in December, was designed to accommodate approximately 600 people who attend church services in the parish.The lightly attended hearing this week and the few public comments were a far cry from the original hearings, when representatives for the parish first appeared before the zoning board with a more ambitious plan to expand the church and elementary school. That proposal proved highly controversial, with area residents voicing strong objections over its size and the potential impact on the neighborhood. Parishioners were also divided on the proposal, which was strongly championed by then-pastor Rev. Joseph Hughes.After a series of lengthy and contentious hearings the board denied the application, which caused the parish to institute a lawsuit to overturn the local decision.Hughes was later arrested and convicted of misappropriating church funds, which, in part, led the diocese and the church to put off what at that time was expected to be an $8 million project.Eventually, a settlement was negotiated and the parish moved forward with the school renovations and now stands poised to begin the expansion of the church.According to the parish website, the Diocese of Trenton has endorsed the project.According to Holy Cross’s attorney, Michael Bruno, the project does not need any additional variances other than what has already been approved.Some members of the planning board participated in the vote on the Holy Cross expansion so that zoning board members who are affiliated with the parish could recuse themselves from the hearing.last_img read more

BELOVED PADDOCK CAPTAIN JOHN SHEAR CELEBRATES 94TH BIRTHDAY IN SANTA ANITA WINNER’S CIRCLE CEREMONY

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 17, 2015)–Surrounded by a group of jockeys and fellow employees and looking like a man 30 years his junior, Santa Anita Paddock Captain John Shear celebrated his 94th birthday in a Winner’s Circle ceremony between races on Saturday at Santa Anita.Employed at The Great Race Place in various roles for more than five decades, Shear struck his customary optimistic tone when asked to reflect on his life and years spent at Santa Anita.“I love working here every day,” he said. “When I get to see lovely people at the track every day, it makes it all worth it.”A native of England who aspired to be a jockey, Shear gained national recognition for an act of heroism on March 12, 2011 when he reacted instinctively to a loose horse in the paddock by throwing himself between the fleeting animal and a 5-year-old girl.When asked earlier today to describe how it felt to be 94 years of age, he responded, “Well, I certainly don’t mind.”last_img read more
