ADDISON COUNTY — For almost 50 years, naturalists, hikers and government officials have dreamed of blazing a trail that would connect two of the country’s longest hiking routes: the Appalachian Trail, which runs along the East Coast from Georgia to Maine, and the North Country Trail, which stretches from Crown Point, N.Y., to North Dakota.

The missing link?

A roughly 40-mile stretch of prospective trail through Addison County.

VERGENNES — A group of Vergennes Union Middle School students have something a little more substantial than a worksheet to demonstrate all the hard work they’ve put into school this semester. They have a solid wood table, which they designed and built by hand.

The students are thrilled with the attractive piece of furniture.

“The finished product is great. It’s very smooth and it’s good quality,” said eighth-grader Megan Wood, when she discussed the about 6-foot-long oak trestle table during class last Thursday.

Tall tales welcome in Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY — Len Rowell well remembers the good ol’ days, when families or friends used to sit down and tell stories at the dinner table or around the proverbial potbellied stove at the local general store.

But the weaving of yarns, Rowell lamented, is fast fading from a society increasingly spoon-fed entertainment through televisions, computer monitors and even cell phones. Storytelling, especially for the younger generation, is now done in impersonal staccato through texts and tweets.

Whiting considers dog ordinance

Posted on May 31, 2012 |
By Andrea Suozzo



WHITING — Following a dog bite incident in January, the Whiting selectboard has decided on the need for an animal ordinance.

The town still has 15 unregistered dogs, according to recent reports. Owners must provide proof that dogs have rabies shots upon registration, and the selectboard has agreed that it must have an ordinance as a matter of public safety. An ordinance would allow the town to enforce registration and safety in the case of dog bites.

Council OKs sewer, fire funds in budget

Posted on May 31, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their May 22 meeting began their work on the 2012-2013 city budget by agreeing with City Manager Mel Hawley’s recommendations for fire and sewer department spending, Mayor Michael Daniels said the next day.

Daniels said aldermen moved quickly on Hawley’s $123,100 Vergennes Fire Department proposal because it will allow city officials to mail out contracts promptly to the other towns that share that cost with the city: Ferrisburgh, Panton and Waltham.

STARKSBORO — The Starksboro community will have to adjust to life next year without their long-time principal. Come August, he’ll be 2,000 miles south.

Dan Noel, principal of Robinson Elementary School, and his wife Nicki Bergstrom-Noel, an English teacher at Mount Abraham Union High School, made the decision to take a one-year leave of absence next year and take their two daughters — Delia, 4, and Hazel, 2 — on the adventure of a lifetime. The two educators are relocating their family to the 65-square-mile Caribbean island of St. Kitts.
