Posted on December 31, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



ChronJan.jpg

The first month of 2014 saw local selectboards and school boards fine-tune their 2014-2015 budget proposals for Town Meeting Day. In Addison, school directors in January put the finishing touches on a budget that reflected a reduction of 1.5 teaching positions. Vergennes Union High School directors were working to pare down the impact of a budget draft that, if approved, could trigger a 20-percent increase in the VUHS portion of the property tax rates of the five sending towns. Ferrisburgh Central School directors drafted a spending plan calling for an 11 percent increase.

MIDDLEBURY — It’s not unusual for children to announce what they’d like to be when they grow up, such as a fireman, pro athlete or even astronaut.

Jack Mayer decided in 7th grade that he was not only going to be a physician, he was going to be a pediatrician.

“I always felt a calling to work with kids,” Mayer said.

And Mayer dutifully met his calling, serving thousands of children during a career that has spanned four decades.

ORWELL — Before the Christmas break, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders at the Orwell Village School sent eggs flying, juiced carrots, concocted silly putty in plastic bags and subjected plants to the effects of acid rain.

By Jessie Raymond



Between noon on Thursday, Dec. 25, and 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 29, I accomplished nothing.
