VERMONT CAPITAL STRUGGLES TO REGAIN NORMALCY IN TIME FOR ROTTEN SNEAKER INVASION

 VERMONT CAPITAL STRUGGLES TO REGAIN NORMALCY
 IN TIME FOR ROTTEN SNEAKER INVASION
 MONTPELIER, Vt., March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Neither the worst flood in 65 years nor the power outage that followed have dampened the spirits of the brave citizens of this New England town for their traditional rite, of spring, the 17th Annual Odor-Eaters International Rotten Sneaker Contest.
 State and local leaders voted unanimously today to hold the smell- off, as scheduled, at the Montpelier Department of Recreation on Friday, March 20 at 3 p.m.
 A dozen boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, will converge on Montpelier from points as far flung as Alaska, Missouri and upstate New York in order to wage the fierce fight for the foulest-smelling footwear of the year.
 "The contest is an important part of life in Montpelier," said Mayor Ann Cummings, who has presided over the event every year since her election in 1989.
 "We can't disappoint these kids who have come so far and worked so hard on odor achievement, dragging their feet through muck and mire and driving their mothers mad," she added.
 The flood, caused by the overflow of the Winooskie River, covered all of the downtown. "It was an act of God," Mayor Cummings concluded, pointing out that the Department of Recreation Gymnasium, where the contest is always held, was spared.
