FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Central School board on Thursday left open the door to buying a 2-acre parcel next to the school, but decided first to approach the selectboard on this Tuesday to see if the town is interested in the land, which school board members said could be used as parking for the nearby town office building and community center.
However, on Friday morning selectboard chairwoman Loretta Lawrence said the town already has a plan in place to expand the limited onsite parking for its Route 7 building.
FERRISBURGH — At their Thursday meeting, the Ferrisburgh Central School board heard a proposal for a roughly 120-kilowatt solar array that would produce about the same amount of electricity needed to power FCS for a year.
Jon Budreski of Waterbury’s SunCommon outlined an arrangement for a solar array that would not provide electricity directly to the school, but through net-metering would earn FCS a credit of about $2,500 a year on its power bill.

LEICESTER — Daryle Stone didn’t have much use for school — or at least that’s what he thought 14 years ago as an Otter Valley Union High School freshman.
He wasn’t learning things as easily as his classmates, some of whom teased him for being “slow.”
“I’m the type of person if you made fun of me, there was a confrontation,” Stone, now 28, recalled.
