1} BESHAWPROTEST6_CELL2


Protests in Winooski tonight -- following a deadly police shooting. Good evening, I'm Julie Kelley. Darren is off tonight. And I'm Kristin Kelly. People have been gathering at the roundabout since late this afternoon. Channel 3's Cat Viglienzoni joins us live from the protest -- Cat... What's happening there? ((Cat sets the scene)) Protesters are expected to be here for another half an hour or so tonight to make their statement heard.

2} BESHAWPROTEST6_PKG


Police say last Friday -- 29-year-old Jesse Beshaw had a burglary warrant out for his arrest -- and was being chased on foot by 31-year-old Deputy Nicholas Palmier of the Franklin County Sheriff's Office. State police say during that pursuit -- Beshaw turned toward the deputy with his hand behind his back. Police say he ignored commands -- and then Palmier opened fire seven times -- hitting Beshaw six times in the head and torso... killing him. (nats -- 00:00:10:00) ((Officer over radio: suspect is down)) State police say Beshaw was known to carry a handgun -- but that afternoon -- he was unarmed. There is body camera video -- but police have declined to release it ... citing the ongoing investigation. ((SOT Jerry O'Neill, Legal Analyst 000048 It's quite common for police agencies to hold body camera video for at least some period of time 53)) But in the age where any bystander could have a smartphone camera -- and fragments of video ... like this one obtained by Channel 3 after the shooting... are quick to circulate online -- there is a growing call for police to release their body cam videos sooner to show what they were facing -- and how they reacted. ((SOT Jerry O'Neill, Legal Analyst 000245 if a bystander is using video, it puts pressure on law enforcement agencies to release the video for two reasons: One is that there is already a video scenario out there, and their video may be more accurate. And they want to get that video out there to make it clear what actually did happen, as opposed to what the bystander picked up on their video 02)) But how soon is soon enough -- or too soon? O'Neill says the longer a police agency holds on to the video -- the more questions people have. Two national police shootings show two different responses. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, police this week released the video of an officer-involved shooting. That officer now faces manslaughter charges. By contrast, in Charlotte, North Carolina -- protests surround the killing of another black man by police -- and calls for video of what happened have been denied. O'Neill says more often now, departments want the video out there. ((SOT O'Neill 000212 most video helps police officers because it exonerates them from claims made by the public 18)) For Beshaw's family and friends... patience isn't good enough. They want answers. Others at the protest say they want to see a change in culture. ((000726 Barry Kade, Protester: They have to realize that just because they're afraid it doesn't mean that they have the right to make a death sentence. 733))

3} BESHAWPROTEST6_SPLIT


Beshaw's family has been working with the Peace and Justice Center to set up today's protest... and we're told by the Center that the family has questions about why the Franklin County Officer was in the area -- whether he was on duty at the time -- and whether the officer and suspect might have known each other. We asked state police again today for an update the investigation and the video and we were told no comment -- citing the ongoing investigation. Julie?

4} BLM5_VO


The Black Lives Matter flag is flying along side the national flag at UVM. The student government chose to put up the flag. President Tom Sullivan told us today that flying the flag outside the Davis student center is not an endorsement of Black Lives Matter -- but reflects that students wanted to support the African-American community in the wake of recent police shootings across the country.

5} FLAG5_SOTVO


((Tom Sullivan/UVM president 36:01 I think given this particular time in the history of America, our students thought it was an appropriate time over the next couple of days to show their support for black communities in the United States.)) The university says that the flagpole by the Davis Center often flies flags to celebrate or honor various organizations. The student government association selects which flag goes up.

((NAT video, Robert Larner graduated in 1939)) Soon after Robert Larner graduated from the University of Vermont -- he moved to California to start his own medical practice. Now he's pledging 66 million dollars to the school that launched his career. ((Tom Sullivan/UVM President 16:40 I am pleased and proud to announce the next gift from the Larner's and it is truly transformative)) At a celebration Friday -- UVM President Tom Sullivan announced that the Bob and Helen Larner's gifts to the medical school exceed 100 million dollars. Sullivan says Larner has a vision. ((Tom Sullivan/UVM President 15:31 that the University of Vermont offers second to none education for our medical students.)) Larner's name and the medical school now inseparable. ((David Daigle UVM BOard chair 22:51 Last week the University of Vermont board of trustees voted unanimously to name the college of medicine in your honor.)) The school estimates Larner's giving will generate 4 million in annual income for a school trying to rethink medical learning. ((Soraiya Thura/Medical School Class of 2018 31:46 We want to be trained in the best possible way to be the best physicians for our patients.)) Lecture-style learning is giving way to clinical simulations. In a statement -- Larner -- who in his 90s and was unable to travel from his home in Los Angeles -- said in a statement: (GFX) "i'm equally grateful for the opportunity to impact the future of medical education and to inspire others." (end GFX) ((Tom Sullivan/UVM President 19:41 Bob and Helen we are filled with deep gratitude for your transformative, historic gift.)) An historic gift that becomes the largest ever given by one person to a public university in New England.

Larner's giving started in 1985 when he created that has helped 1300 medical students pay for their education with low interest loans.

9} PLANE5_TECHVO


Governor Peter Shumlin missed the big ceremony at UVM today -- because there was trouble with the state plane. He was stuck in Springfield. The Governor's use of the state plane has stirred controversy before. Kyle Midura is here with this part of the story. Kyle. Darren and Kristin - spokespeople for the agency of transportation say low clouds and dangerous winds grounded the Governor's flight in the state plane today. In an email, his spokesperson, Sue Allen, told us quote "the Governor has used the plane off and on in recent years when it made sense given his schedule" But she opted not to say whether it has made sense more often since the Governor's recent move from East Montpelier to Westminster. Back in 2013 -- Transportation officials grounded the plane, citing safety concerns. That came just days after lawmakers rejected the Governor's budget request for a new, one-and-a-half million dollar plane... and after the Governor came under scrutiny for using the plane for both official and campaign-related business. Today we're told mechanics overhauled the 50-year-old, four-seat Cessna a couple of years ago. I spoke with the chairman of the Senate's transportation committee -- Sen. Dick Mazza -- earlier this hour. The influential Democrat tells me he thought the plane was grounded and says he's surprised to hear the Governor's been using it. Mazza says he doesn't see the purpose of the plane in a state this small ... adding he never received a breakdown of what its repair cost and that he would like to see an analysis of what it costs to fly the governor rather than drive him. - Kristin and Julie.

Quiros is accused of misusing about 200 million dollars from foreign investors.

12} SUBOXONE6_VO


The state of Vermont is now part of a lawsuit against the maker of suboxone. The lawsuit claims that Indivior tried to block a generic version of the drug from being made. It claims they switched Suboxone from a tablet version to a film that dissolves in your mouth to make it harder to copy. By doing that, the lawsuit alleges that the drug company could keep prices artificially high. Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction.

13} PHILSCOTT5_CLIPVO


It was becoming a controversy on the campaign trail in the race for Governor -- and today Republican candidate Phil Scott announced he will sell his construction business - if he is elected. Scott is the co-owner of DuBois (dew-boys) Construction in Middlesex. Tomorrow, at the 70th anniversary celebration of the company, Scott will announce his plan for a complete separation from the company if he becomes governor. Democrats have been raising conflict of interest questions - because Dubois routinely bids on state projects.

14} ASSEMBLY6_INTRO


In our Campaign Countdown tonight -- the race for New York Assembly in the North Country. Its an open seat. Rose Spillman takes a look at the candidates.

15} ASSEMBLY6ALT


Democrat Billy Jones and Republican Kevin Mulverhill are North Country natives on a mission to head to Albany. The two candidates hope to fill the assembly seat currently held by Janet Duprey--who plans to retire at the end of this term. ((Billy Jones/Democrat for NYS Assembly District 115 4291 01:13:51 "Creating jobs and opportunities for people to stay in the area. We need people to stay here, and that is the focus of our campaign--one of the focuses. Also, education. 01:14:02 We need to fix our education system." 01:14:06)) Jones grew up on a family dairy farm and ran the business for several years before kicking off his political career as mayor of Chateaugay. For the past four years, he's been the chairman of the Franklin County Legislature. If elected, he's hoping to support job growth and bring more localized control to school districts. Also on his mind--ethics reform in Albany. ((Billy Jones/Democrat for NYS Assembly District 115 4291 01:17:57 "Outside income is a huge issue to the legislature. I have vowed when I go to Albany, if I'm elected, I will not take any outside money. I will not be--I won't have any other job." 01:18:10)) Mulverhill is a father of seven from Malone. He started out as a corrections officer before spending over 20 years with the New York State Police. More recently, he's been the Franklin County Sheriff for almost six years. ((Kevin Mulverhill/Republican for Assembly 115th District 4614 03:51:47 "Being the Sheriff has given me the opportunity to help a lot of people on a number of committees, and just the ability to have a lot of resources, or at least gather resources together to help individuals actually target certain issues and certain problems, and I see the assembly seat as just a step up from a lot of what I'm doing now, only I get to help more people, and I get to have more resources." 03:52:06)) Mulverhill plans to support job creation and bring better infrastructure--like better bridges, sewers, and water systems for towns and villages. He's also focused on combatting the opiate epidemic. He says as sheriff, he's already had the chance to implement new solutions to keep addicts clean. ((Kevin Mulverhill/Republican for Assembly 115th District 4614 03:54:08 "We've actually started a program where any inmate that comes into the jail gets screened for substance abuse and also any mental health issues which sometimes go hand in hand, and then we steer them into a treatment program, and when their jail sentence is done, we actually steer them--put them into a program out on the street so that rehabilitation continues." 03:54:24)) If elected, Mulverhill says he will step down from his position as sheriff. It will be up to voters to decide who will represent the 115th district on election day, November 8th. Rose Spillman, Channel 3

22} SHELBURNEGRAPES6_INTRO


Despite today's rain - this month is expected to be one of the driest Septembers on record. Despite a drought that's caused hardship for some Vermonters -- it's been a boost in business for others. Tyler Dumont has more tonight from Shelburne.

23} SHELBURNEGRAPES6_PKG


The opportunity for future business grows just once a year at Shelburne Vineyards. The first vines of the 2016 harvest are being picked this week -- including these marquette grapes. ((TILE 7436 21:45:07:29--21:45:11: 27 Kenneth Albert/Shelburne Vineyards: "They're sweet, juicy and delicious.")) The marquettes budded in April -- but by next year -- they could allow the vineyard to be bottling up big time. ((TILE 7456 22:08:37:11--22:08:44: 27 TYLER DUMONT/SHELBURNE: "Despite a year with little rainfall, it's actually been a good thing for these grapes. In fact, it might be the vineyard's best harvest yet.")) ((TILE 7438 21:51:56:13--21:52:03: 21 Albert: "Grapes like it when it's dry. There's less powdery mildew or any kinds of molds that form on it. Much easier to manage.)) Vines here are projected to collectively give about 4 tons of grapes per acre. This single bin alone weighed in at over 1,100 pounds. It's only a 3-week harvest -- but it's projected to be a snap of success. ((TILE 7436 21:48:45:15--21:48:49: 06 Albert: "It's probably going to be between 30 and 40-thousand bottles of wine.")) By mid-October when fermented and pressed, workers will have picked about 60 tons of grapes. ((TILE 7501 22:54:05:06--22:54:09: 04 ETHAN JOSEPH: "We've had a few blocks that have had record yields.")) The twist has also offered a growth in jobs here. Many of the two dozen employees are refugees that resettled in Vermont. Nicholas Malanda is one of them. ((TILE 7459 22:17:17:21--22:17:19: 13 NICHOLAS MALANDA :"We have to take the good one.")) Malanda came to the U.S. from Congo in 2005. He's been helping at the vineyard for three seasons. ((TILE 7459 22:17:59:12--22:18:11: 22 MALANDA: "I do like this work because it's easy for me. And I discovered something I've never seen in my country.")) Despite most being temporary jobs -- the opportunity may allow for personal growth. And just like the grapes planted here a decade ago -- more and more refugees are returning each year. ((TILE 7438 21:53:51:13--21:53:58: 05 Albert: Very focused on what they do, and I think they need the work - and so they appreciate it, and we appreciate them.")) But workers won't know if it was the best harvest ever until next year -- when they can finally put it to the taste. TD, CH3 News, Shelburne.

27} MASSAGEPARLOR6_INTRO


A new push to rid Vermont of human trafficking...the feds are going after the landlords who rent to commercial sex sellers. Investigative reporter -- Jennifer Costa -- has our follow-up story.

28} MASSAGEPARLORALT_ALT


The sign outside used to read Oasis Hotstone. Now it says "for rent." Investigators tell us this Shelburne massage parlor was a front for illegal human trafficking. ((Det. Tpr. Matt Hill/CUSI MAY:00:24:14:00 "what you'll see is that the girls will stay there 4-6 weeks. Gone. bring in 2-3 more. Gone.")) After seeing this ad posted online.. ((NATS -- website music)) ...We visited the business -- back in May -- watched several men -- go in and out -- throughout the night. So we wanted to know what happened inside. ((COSTA 00:51:02:15 "what kind of massages can you get here?" Woman: It's shiatsu massage. Costa: Shiatsu massage.")) The woman who answered the door -- denied men came there to pay for sex. ((Woman 00:56:18:07 "I think there is no problem here, just a massage here." 00:56:30:28 "so absolutely nothing sexual happens here? Woman: no.")) But according to court documents -- alleged "johns" told police -- they would pay $80 for an hour long massage -- but 20 minutes into the service -- would have the option to pay more for a variety sexual services. ((Eric Miller/US Attorney for Vermont 00:06:27:26 "There is no question that commercial sex trafficking does not exist without sex buyers.")) The US Attorney for Vermont says paying customers -- in this state -- make it easy for out of state traffickers -- to exploit young women by bringing them in illegally from overseas to have sex for money. In July -- Oasis Hotstone disappeared. Eric Miller says his office put pressure on the landlord. Federal law requires landlords to take reasonable steps to stop criminal activity occurring on their properties. If they don't -- the government can ask a federal judge to civilly forfeit the property. ((Eric Miller/US Attorney for Vermont 00:03:28:13 "in this case we did not have to file a civil forfeiture action. in working with the landlord we were able to convince him that it was his legal responsibility to commence an eviction action against these tenants.")) ((Jennifer Costa/Shelburne 00:12:39:11 "we got mixed reactions when we talked to business owners here in the complex. Some tell me they never noticed Oasis Hotstone was here. Others say it directly affected their businesses, customers refusing to come because of their proximity to the massage parlor. But most tell me they're just happy the business is gone as well as the clients it attracted.")) ((JC 00:03:42:08 "what happened to the women?" EM: we don't know. we don't know.")) The feds say their goal is to connect human trafficking victims with social services -- but often they vanish before law enforcement can help. Miller says the feds pressures landlords across the state. ((Eric Miller/US Attorney for Vermont 00:04:52:00 "If we're successful at that it will not simply be squeezing it out of one location so that it pops up somewhere nearby it will be making Vermont sufficiently difficult place to do business that we will make a meaningful effect on stopping human trafficking in Vermont.")) So far -- no criminal charges have been filed against the owner or manager of Oasis Hotstone. JC CH 3 News Shelburne.

It's apple season! Yes, we are picking them off the trees outside of our studio. Fall fruits are the best, and this evening, Charlie Nardozzi is showing us some unusual varieties of fruit trees you can grow right here.

41} GARDEN6_PKG


Charlie, it's fruit season! This is so great in this part of the world! It is! Apples and pears are coming in and there's one kind of pear that a lot of people don't know about but you can grow it in Vermont. It's the Asian pear! It's also called the apple pear. It looks like an apple, more than a pear, shape wise. It does. It's got a round fruit to it. It comes in a yellow or a brown skin to it, depending on the varieties. And it's hardy to zone 5 so the champlain Valley, the Connecticut River Valley, places like that you can grow these trees. What I like about these is they don't get very big. 15, 20 feet tall, they fruit really easily and really quickly, and you get these beautiful pears that have kind of crunch like an apple, but they are also juicy like a pear. But what about the flavor, so they taste more like an apple, or more like a pear? Well, you tell me what you think! I was hoping you were going to say that! We're going to cut one open here, so you can have a little taste of this Asian pear and see what its like. It tastes kind of like an apple and a pear! That's why it's called the apple pear! So you need two different varieties. The one you're eating now is called chojuro, and the other one that I have here that matured earlier is called chinsecki. And they grow together really nicely, you can pick them on the tree and let them mature inside like a pear would, or you can let them mature on the tree so that when you pull them and they pop right off, then you know that they are mature. If they get a little bit older, they get sweeter and they get juicier too. So you can use them in salads, you can use them for sauces, a really nice tree to grow and not many problems. Get varieties like these two that are fire blight resistant so you don't have to deal with diseases too. Wow, very tasty!

43} CRICKETS6_INTRO


A Vermont farm family is hoping to change the way we eat. But it is going to take some getting used to, as Judy Simpson found out.

44} CRICKETS6_PKG


(("After You.....)) In the basement of the Swanson house you will find something unique. ((Steve Swanson/ Tomorrow's Harvest 00:10:49:06" We are as far as we are aware the first in Vermont and New England there are only 4 or 5 cricket farms for human consumption in north america."")) That's right, human consumption. Swanson and his wife Jen as new parents were concerned about the food they were serving their family. They learned about the benefits of crickets a couple of years ago. ((Steve again 00:07:11:20 "So when I came across a report that the UN released in 2013 which was about edible insects and how they are the solution to climate change and global hunger and that was the lightbulb moment.")) They are now growing a couple of hundred thousand crickets on their basement farm. Here are the facts, Swanson says it takes eight weeks for these European House Crickets to go from egg to adult. They will eat almost anything, although they are fed a special organic diet, and when dehydrated they contain 70 percent protein. He figures he can sell the protein powder for about 35 to 40 dollars a pound. Jen Swanson substituted some flour for cricket powder to make these cookies. ((Judy Simpson 00:25:42:19 js " the cookie tastes like any other cookie." Jen says "thats the point of the powder, out of sight out of mind JS you don't see any legs sticking out,, no ..laugh.")) ((Jen Swanson/Tomorrow's Harvest ," you are not supposed to smell it or taste it and you are not supposed to see it so actually an invisible protein additive." 00:26:41:10)) But that is not all. What the crickets leave behind is valuable too. ((Steve again 00:11:32:07 "Ya the poop or the PC term Fras,, it is going to be a high quality organic fertilizer so we are going to collect it and bag it up and its basically little dry pellets we will sell that too."009:11:47:15 )) The Swansons hope to build a local market for their products and eventually build a warehouse to supply larger markets. But these crickets are just a gateway bug. (( Steve again 00:09:36:19" So crickets are going to be a way for us to introduce insects to the western world and after that we really want to incorporate as many insects as possible into our diets ants are going to be high up there for sure, mealworms ."00:09:53:00)) Apparently when it comes to eating insects, the sky's the limit.

47} DART_CFB_THUR_W_VO


At the college level, Dartmouth is in Worcester, Massachusetts to face Holy Cross tomorrow. The Big Green has momentum on its side after picking up a huge win last week, knocking off UNH for the first time in 40 years. Dartmouth roared back from a 14 point fourth quarter deficit to stun the Wildcats, getting huge contributions from inexperienced players like quarterback Jack Heneghan and defensive end Brennan Cascarano. After the team graduated a most of the starters from its Ivy league Championship team of a year ago, it's a testament to everyone involved that they were able to step up and produce one of the program's biggest wins in decades.

((Teevens: "Well I think it's really a credit to our coaches and the recruiting that we've done over time. We're having success, the facilities that we've built over time, the way we treat our players, I think it resonates with guys in the recruiting process so we're just getting better football players. When you're a good athlete and you've got something to bring, that really makes a difference." Heneghan: "As players' we've just gotta trust our coaching staff. They've been doing it a long time and they know what they're doing, they put us in good positions to succeed, so having faith in that, that experience on their part, is really helpful in the games or when the game's maybe not going as well as we would have hoped."

49} BOW_MIDD_CFB_PREV_W_VO


The 2016 Middlebury football team is ready to get the season going. The Panthers host Bowdoin Saturday at 1. There's no non conference games for Middlebury, an 8 game schedule, all of its opponents are against NESCAC teams. That means every single game is important. The Panthers went 5-3 last season, that's their lowest win total since the 2011 season. This year's team is changing its mindset. The players realize no one is going to hand the team wins, they're going to have to earn them.

(((Addison Pierce/"Last year, preseason going into the first game, we had our heads up high and we were bouncing around and feeling good. This year it's different. This year it's a grind. This year we're working harder. We're feeling better about ourselves every single day."))) (((Jared Lebowitz/"We're not going to be complacent this year. We're not going to be apathetic. Our Seniors have done a really good job. We've had a crazy offseason, really getting after it in the weight room. The energy on the field is just palpable this year compared to last year, so we're not settling. We're not going 5-3. We're not going 6-2.")))

The UVM men's and women's soccer teams are both in action this weekend. The men host Dartmouth tomorrow afternoon at 2pm at Virtue Field. The women open America East play Sunday afternoon at Maine.

this afternoon, the 5-3 Vermont field hockey team taking on Siena at Moulton-Winder... --- no score, nine minutes to go in the first half...off a UVM corner...Cats keep the pressure on and Lauren Tucker finds Carla Godsman near the far post for the goal and a 1-0 lead... --- two and a half minutes left in the half...after an initial Siena save, Greer Wilson winds up and fires a rocket home to make it 2-0 Vermont... --- and with time winding down...Godsman's shot is directed in by Isabella Sericolo with just two seconds left on the clock... 3-0 Cats...they go on to win 5-2 and remain undefeated at home, a perfect 6-0 at Moulton-Winder.

53} PATS_WIN_BRISSETT_HURT__VO


The Patriots showed, once again, that it was no Brady, no problem, last night as they rode a strong defensive performance and took advantage of two Houston fumbles on kickoff returns to blank the Texans 27-0 and improve to 3-0 while their franchise quarterback sits at home. Third string QB Jacoby Brissett was mistake free in his first NFL start. The rookie, stepping in for Jimmy Garoppolo, threw just 19 passes, completing eleven for 103 yards...and he also ran for 48 yards, including a 27 yard scamper in the first quarter for New England's first touchdown of the night. Unfortunately, Brissett did not finish the game in one piece. He reportedly suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb that will require surgery. Garoppolo, who sprained his right shoulder in the past Sunday's win over Miami, was inactive for last night's game and his status for New England's next game, a week from Sunday at home against Buffalo is still uncertain. Right now, the Pats do not have another quarterback on their roster. Tom Brady will return from his four game suspension the following week when New England visits Cleveland.

54} SOX_SWEEP_ORIOLES_W_VO


And the Red Sox kept it going last night, winning their eighth straight and completing a four game sweep in Baltimore with a 5-3 win. Prior to the game the O's honored David Ortiz' final game at Camden Yards and presented him with the dugout phone he destroyed with a bat during a tirade in 2013. Then the Sox proceeded to bash O's stater Chris Tillman, to the tune of five hits and three runs in just one and a third innings. Hanley Ramirez homered and drove in two and David Price was solid again ...three runs in seven innings to pick up his eighth win in his last night starts. Boston's lead over Toronto in the A-L East has ballooned to five and a half games, their magic number to clinch the division is down to five. The Sox visit Tampa tonight. The Yankees, still just three games out of the Wild Card, can help Boston as well when they face the Blue Jays tonight in Toronto.
