A new slaughterhouse -- that hasn't even opened yet -- is already talking of possible expansions. Black River Meats will begin slaughtering animals on site in North Springfield this June.

But, owners say expansion will mean, once again, going through Act 250-- which regulates land use and development. Some developers say ACT 250 can be a headache. But, Governor Shumlin, who recently toured the facility, disagrees.

38} WINTERGEAR8_INTRO


Skiers are still hitting the slopes and enjoying what's left of the snow. But it will soon be time to pack up the winter gear. Nick Borelli talked to some experts who say there are some things you should do -- to keep your stuff -- in good shape for next year.

39} WINTERGEAR8_PKG


Jake Cameron knows a thing or two about storing winter gear. He's worked at the Alpine Shop in South Burlington for 14 ski seasons. ((Jake Cameron Alpine Shop :32-34 Skiing is my life. It's what we do.)) When it comes to skis and boards he recommends getting them tuned. ((JC 1:12-1:17 A storage tune, which is pretty much the same as a tune you're gonna get in the shop.)) First the bases are flattened through a special machine. ((Nats: base grinding 12:43-46)) Then the edges are sharpened on another device. ((Nats: Sharpening 14:31-34)) Wax comes last-- but it's this step that makes a storage tune unique. ((JC 10:33-37 A storage tune we usually use a little more wax than we would a regular tune.)) The thick coating of wax is left on for storage; preventing the bases from drying out, and the edges from rusting. ((JC 1:34-39 Rust is the most important thing to watch out for because it can ruin a ski pretty quickly.)) This means where you store your skis is important too. ((JC 1:45-51 You want to store them somewhere that's nice and dry, so most of my stuff stays in my bedroom or my closet)) ((Nick Borelli Alpine Shop 16:00-13 This is a great example of why it's important to store your ski equipment properly. These skis, last summer, were stored in a moist basement. What happened is all of that moisture got to these skis, and caused them to delaminate, making them useless)) Another critical part of skis are the bindings, which are built with springs. During the winter season these springs are set to have a lot of tension. ((JC 2:28-35 The end of the season what we recommend is reducing the indicator value all the way down so that the spring doesn't have as much tension in it)) Cameron says that this can extend the life of the binding. But, when winter returns... ((JC 2:41-46 You have to remember to take it to a certified shop to have them readjusted in the beginning of the season)) Boots need some love too. ((Nats: Buckles)) According to Cameron, boots should be stored with the buckles fastened. If you don't do this, you could run into some issues... ((JC 3:59-4:06 You're gonna come back to a boot that looks like this and the plastic will be folded, and the boot won't fit easily.)) Once the boots are buckled, and the liners are dry, simply store them in a dry environment. When it comes to clothes, they should be cleaned according to the directions on the tag. Cameron says products like tech wash provide some additional benefits. ((JC :37-44 It's not gonna hurt any of the high end fabrics that are in our outdoor gear. And it's also going to restore some of the water repellency)) Put your freshly laundered winter clothes in a dry place, and you're ready to go for next season. But some of us, including Cameron, aren't ready to do this quite yet. ((JC My season isn't over for at least another month, month and a half)) Nick Borelli, Channel 3 News, South Burlington.

((Kim: "we collect 150 varieties of wild mushrooms in the state of Vermont about 150 different varieties of wild greens and roots, nuts barks and berries.")) And they say with federal regulations tightening on picking wild foods-- they are teaching courses at the Vermont Technical college so others can become experts.

Like the next generation of farmers, or businessnes people with a local connection to ag. Education is what Flavors of the Valley is all about.

Growing concerns -- about flooding dangers this week. Already -- the National Weather Service reported minor flooding Sunday morning along the Barton River in (KOV'-in-tree) Coventry. They put out a flood watch for much of Vermont and Northern New York lasting all the way through Wednesday night.

Before we know it, it'll be time to put that winter gear away. And experts say there are a few things you should do at the end of a season to make sure it stays in top shape for next year. Skis and boards should get tuned. They're flattened and then waxed with a thick layer to prevent the edges from rusting. Store them in a dry place. And loosen the tension in your bindings.

A new slaughterhouse -- that hasn't even opened yet -- is already talking of possible expansions. Black River Meats will begin slaughtering animals on site in North Springfield this June. They say they will be able to process about 40 beef cattle a day. And with an expanded cooler, they could double that number. But, owners say expansion will mean, once again, going through Act 250-- which regulates land use and development. Some developers say ACT 250 can be a headache. But, Governor Shumlin, who recently toured the facility, disagrees.

25} SHUMLIN11_SOTVO


((Gov. Peter Shumlin: "Vermont's permitting process is easy compared to a lot of other states. I was talking to the Dealer.com guys recently and they said they were expanding in both Vermont and California and they said you know the California guys come in and count the screws in your sheet rock and if it is not right, they make you take the sheet rock down and start again. So you know, we do have Act 250, it help preserve Vermont, but we also get folks through Act 250.)) Shumlin says the state is small enough where business can call the Governor's office directly if they are having issues securing permits.
