Gesine Bullock-Prado Spreads Vermont Love Through a New Cookbook Out March 14

Gesine Bullock-Prado is enthusiastically enamored of many things. The list includes baking, teaching people to bake, maple syrup, Vermont and her pet goose named Mama. Oh, and brown butter. Of the copper-flecked, nutty liquid gold, the pastry chef gushed during a recent conversation in her White River Junction kitchen classroom, "What's not to love about brown butter? It brings happiness to everything."

The host of Food Network's "Baked in Vermont," frequent TV cooking show judge and prolific cookbook author regularly shares her enthusiasms with her 40,000-plus followers on both Facebook and Instagram. Preorders from a passionate fan base have already catapulted her forthcoming seventh title, My Vermont Table: Recipes for All (Six) Seasons, to a top slot in the seasonal cooking new releases category on Amazon. Unlike Bullock-Prado's previous pastry-focused tomes, this one includes many non-baked savory recipes and unabashedly celebrates her home state.

The cookbook debuts on March 14, purposefully timed for mud season, one of the two "extra" Vermont seasons that are all too familiar to locals but may be new to many of the chef's devotees. Bullock-Prado, 52, often addresses those fans as "sweet people," as in an October 2022 Instagram post in which she wrote, "Sweet people, this morning at 5 a.m. as I was wiping down the school benches, I thought to myself, 'Crikey, I'm so happy.'"

SHS Exchange Students Share March 30 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Springfield Town Library is happy to host the Springfield High School Exchange Students for an evening of sharing! Students will share stories and information about their home countries, their experience as a student in the United States, and their future plans.

Windsor County state’s attorney willing to review cases after discovery of prosecutorial violation

 Tiffany Tan reporting for VT Digger

The Windsor County State’s Attorney’s Office is willing to review cases handled by a former county prosecutor who was recently found to have withheld evidence from a sexual assault defendant. The judge tossed the case on the eve of trial in February due to the prosecutorial violation.

State’s Attorney Ward Goodenough said that, as part of his office’s established procedures, staff members are already reviewing their special investigative unit’s other sexual assault cases. Former Deputy State’s Attorney Heidi Remick once prosecuted these matters, including the 2018 case that was dismissed last month.

“We're going to continue to review cases,” said Goodenough, who became state’s attorney in 2020. “If people would like us to review any case in particular, we're always doing that on a constant basis with the defense bar.”

Even cases that are already closed, he said, “are open for review by any defense attorney who wishes to do so.”

The defense attorney in the dismissed sexual assault case, for one, believes the Windsor County State’s Attorney’s Office should conduct a systematic review of the cases previously handled by Remick to ensure no other evidence-related violations have occurred.

“It does a disservice not just to defendants, but also it undermines the entire system and it hurts victims,” defense attorney Leah Henderson said in an interview. “I think it would put a lot of clients and other attorneys at ease to know that they have everything that they are entitled to.”

According to court records, as part of evidence discovery in 2019, Henderson had asked Remick for information on any untruthful statements from the case complainant — a girl who reported being raped by a 29-year-old man in 2014.

The records show that Remick responded by saying the state’s attorney’s office didn’t possess such material, and even if it did, wouldn’t be able to provide it to the defendant. She left the office in 2020.

In February, about a week before the man’s trial, Henderson received what she described as unexpected and potentially exculpatory information from the new prosecutors. The defense attorney learned that, while in New Hampshire in 2016, the girl reported being sexually assaulted by another man, a report she later recanted before taking back the recantation.


House bill looks to improve accessibility on new trails in Vermont

Ciara McEneany reporting for VT Digger

Vermonters with disabilities could soon have an easier time on the trails if a new bill is passed.

The bill, H.85, would make 10% of each newly constructed trail on state lands accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. The same would apply to trails built using state funds.

Rep. Elizabeth Burrows, D/P-West Windsor, introduced the bill in the House Committee on Agriculture, Food Resiliency and Forestry in late January.

The idea for the bill came from Burrows’ experience advocating to make her local trail on Mt. Ascutney in Windsor County accessible to everyone. But regional planning commissioners did nothing, she said.

“I kept pushing harder and harder, and then I got elected to office,” Burrows said. “The first bill that I put in was creating accessible trails, either on state lands or using state funds, so that everybody can enjoy them.”

For Burrows, the bill is driven in part by her own personal struggles with inaccessible trails.

“I am a person who can't get around very easily, and for all of my life I've had to adapt to pretending that I can get around on trails when, really, I'm not getting the same experience,” Burrows said. “Because I'm having to pay attention to where every footstep lands.”


Clean heat standard moves forward on 19-10 Senate vote

 Emma Cotton reporting for VT Digger

Amid debates that have reached a fever pitch across the state, lawmakers in the Vermont Senate voted 19-10 on Thursday to advance a bill that aims to transform the way Vermonters heat their homes.

The bill, S.5, which would establish a clean heat standard in Vermont, is headed to the House, where it’s expected to pass. It will then go to the desk of Gov. Phil Scott, who expressed strong opposition at his weekly press briefing on Wednesday.

The Republican governor vetoed a similar bill last session, and lawmakers failed to override his veto by a single vote. Due to a supermajority of Democrats and Progressives in both chambers, the bill has better odds this time.

A recent amendment altered the bill so that it would not actually put the clean heat standard into place, but rather act as a blueprint, requiring the state’s Public Utility Commission to stand up a full program over the next two years. The plan would then come back before the full Legislature for another vote, or for potential modification.

In addition to the Public Utility Commission’s plan, lawmakers would likely have several more studies in hand before the plan returns to them.

Still, noise about the complicated piece of legislation has grown louder and louder in recent weeks as opponents have raised concerns about potential increases in cost that the program could cause Vermonters with low and moderate incomes.

On the Senate floor Thursday afternoon, tensions ran high.

“We don’t have time. My generation does not have time,” Sen. Becca White, D-Windsor, who is in her 20s, said as she urged senators to support the bill. “I ask you, as the youngest member of this body, for you to consider that time, and how the 2030 goals — I apologize, the 2030 requirements, and the 2050 requirements, will impact my life and the people younger than me.”


Leahy named a ‘distinguished fellow’ at UVM

Shaun Robinson reporting for VT Digger

Vermont’s longest-serving U.S. senator is going back to school.

Former Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, who retired in January after nearly five decades in Congress, has been named a “president’s distinguished fellow” at the University of Vermont, the school announced Thursday in a press release.

In the role, Leahy will advise students and faculty and give guest lectures, as well as participate in research and other projects that were started thanks to his efforts while in the Senate, UVM said. Leahy will also be “a conduit between the university and organizations and communities in all corners of the state,” according to the release.

The position is unpaid, and Leahy started this week, a UVM spokesperson said.

“My career, my family, and my most proud moments are all centered here, in Vermont,” Leahy, who was born in Montpelier, said in the press release. “What better place to continue my work for Vermont than on this great university’s campus?”

Leahy was known for securing outsize amounts of federal funding for Vermont during his Senate tenure, and he’s raked in millions of dollars for UVM in recent years.

In 2022, Leahy secured $9.3 million of congressionally directed spending to establish UVM’s Institute for Rural Partnerships, which is slated to open this summer and study issues including broadband access, clean water and housing in small towns. In 2021, the senator secured $11 million to support the UVM Food Systems Research Center; in 2019, he secured $6.6 million to help create the school’s Center on Rural Addiction.

UVM established a scholarship fund in 2019 in the names of Leahy and his wife, Marcelle. The school has a Lake Champlain research boat that bears Marcelle’s name, too.


Concerts and Adventures

Willi Carlisle
Billsville House Concerts
Manchester VT March 2, 2023

Willi Carlisle is a poet and a folk singer from Arkansas. He is on tour promoting his second album "Peculiar, Missouri" and before performing in Northampton MA at the Back Porch Festival 2023 he made a stop in Manchester, VT at my favorite Vermont venue-Billsville House Concerts.

Billsville holds about 75 people. Carlisle's show was SOLD-OUT with standing room only. It was the venue's 155th show (I believe). People go to Billsville to listen to music, to hang with the artists and to celebrate live music in a community setting. Carlisle and his brand of music fit right in.

From his website:
"Like his hero Utah Phillips, Carlisle's extraordinary gift for turning a phrase isn't about high falutin' pontificatin'; it's about looking out for one another and connecting through our shared human condition.  On his anticipated second album, the magnum opus Peculiar, Missouri, Carlisle makes the case across twelve epic tracks that love truly can conquer all. 

Born and raised on the Midwestern plains, Carlisle is a product of the punk to folk music pipeline that’s long fueled frustrated young men looking to resist."

He opened the show with "What The Rocks Don't Know" accompanied by "these two cow bones and this here tooter" (harmonica). He encouraged the audience to meet new people and make new friends as a way to keep expanding musical communities like Billsville.

He played a couple of songs about drugs and how they have touched him personally-especially losing someone close to him to a fentanyl overdose.

Weaving in some very interesting stories about a few old cowboys he met, he sang about the cowboy life. He also played a few songs from poems set to music. 

It's hard to describe his genre of music, or to pigeon-hole him, or label him but he has a strong voice and can play many stringed instruments and the accordion like "nobody's business."

He's finishing up his swing through the northeast then heading south and west. He's even heading to the UK to play at the Black Deer Festival in Tunbridge Wells, UK in June.

Vermont Flower Show
Champlain Valley Expo
Williston, VT March 3, 2023

After few years off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vermont Flower Show returned to a LIVE event hosted at the Champlain Valley Expo Center in Essex Junction, VT.

The Vermont Nursery and Landscape Association puts together a Grand Garden Display (over 15,000 s. ft.) filled with flowering bulbs, shrubs trees, and water features. The 2023 Vermont Flower Show Grand Garden Display theme was Out of Hibernation! Spring Comes to the 100-Acre Wood, an adaptation of the world and magic of Winnie the Pooh, by A. A. Milne.

My friends and I had planned to go on Friday, March 3 thinking it would be the least crowded day of the weekend but with the winter storm looming-lots of people decided to head to the show on Friday rather than drive in the wintery mix on Saturday. 

It was insane,  there were so many people at the show-even the veteran vendors were astonished.

But if you kept your cool and just meandered around, you could easily see and enjoy all that the show had to offer like: local artists painting "live" in the Grand Garden Display; over 100 vendors related to the horticultural/gardening in the Flower Show Marketplace; over 35 educational seminars and hands-on workshops on a variety of topics; a family room with craft and planting activities; a local bookstore offering a great selection of books; The Federated Garden Clubs of VT display and it you ventured there on Sunday-the crazy Plant Sale at the conclusion of the show.

This was my first Vermont Garden Show; it won't be my last.
