Voters OK water plant upgrade

Posted on August 9, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Voters turned out in small numbers last Wednesday, but backed by a large margin a proposed $5.1 million upgrade of the Vergennes-Panton Water District plant, which was built in 1973 on Panton’s Adams Ferry Road.

The final tally recorded at the district’s Vergennes office on Canal Street was 104-49, or 67-33 percent. That vote cleared the way for the first major upgrade of the Lake Champlain plant since its construction.

Kudos, caution after Calif. marriage ruling

Posted on August 9, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Addison County attorney and same-sex marriage advocate Beth Robinson hailed a federal judge’s ruling last week that struck down California’s ban on same-sex unions, but she cautioned that the decision does not guarantee a national pathway to equal rights for gay and lesbian couples.

“It confirms what we have been saying all along — the Constitution doesn’t countenance carving out gay people from the same right to marry that other citizens take for granted,” Robinson said during a phone interview on Thursday.

“It is a significant win,” she added.

Vermont must give teeth to the open records law

Posted on August 9, 2010 |
By Tom Kearney



Vermont, like the United States, has a government of laws, not of men — what Abraham Lincoln called “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

It’s an ancient idea, one that dates back at least to the time of Aristotle and Plato, more than 300 years before Christ. It was a keystone of the American Revolution. In Britain, the king was the law, but Thomas Paine wrote that, “in America, the law is king.”

Maybe Armando Vilaseca and the municipal officials of Hartford, Vt., should brush up on the principles of democracy.

Ferrisburgh to evaluate zoning position

Posted on August 9, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — After learning on Tuesday in a letter from interim Ferrisburgh zoning administrator Thomas Mansfield that he would leave at the end of 2010, selectmen decided to meet on Aug. 17 with Mansfield and the heads of the town’s planning and zoning boards to discuss the position’s job description and hours.

Mansfield, who works half-time in Charlotte, agreed to step in and work just four hours a week plus meeting time in Ferrisburgh.

County, Vermont facing housing challenges

Posted on August 5, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



web_homeowners0307.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — On July 20, Bonnie and Stanley Godfrey closed on a Middlebury home with the help of the Addison County Community Trust (ACCT). With their grown children already out of the nest, the couple had been looking for a modest two-bedroom house that could be made handicap-accessible as they aged.

“We found a lot of houses way above what we could afford,” Bonnie Godfrey said.

And the ones that were within their price range would have needed renovations so costly that the low price tag was not worth it.
