Vergennes duo teams up for 10th benefit show

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By John Flowers

VERGENNES — Visitors entering the Emerson Guest House bed and breakfast on Main Street in Vergennes shouldn’t be surprised if they are greeted with a rousing rendition the “Major-General’s Song” from Pirates of Penzance, or “Prima Donna” from The Phantom of the Opera. And many walk in impressed with the vocal prowess of the singer, Bill Walsh, a professional actor who along with his wife — dancer and choreographer Sue Burk Walsh — are livening up the theater scene in the Little City.

Tough Goshen winter can't stop the flowers

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Judith Irven



D51-2615 2.jpg

Spring comes gently to Goshen; even now, in late April, the woods are brown and the weather often chilly.

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Laurie Mumley



May is Foster Care Month, a time to celebrate the hundreds of foster and kinship foster families in Vermont who provide safe, nurturing homes for children while they can’t be at home. It is with deep appreciation that the Family Services Division of the Department for Children and Families thanks them for their generosity, caring and willingness to “answer the call,” no matter when it comes.

Legislative Update: economic development a priority

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Fred Baser



We are in the final weeks of the Legislative session. I fear if we need to extend the session it will be the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee’s doing, as the 150-page Senate bill (S.138) that we received in our committee a few weeks ago has just left our committee with many changes and additions.

Clippings: Farewell to the Addison Independent

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Zach Despart



It is with a heavy heart that I announce that this is my final column for the Independent, as I will be joining the Free Press next week, where I will cover Burlington and city hall.

It was not an easy decision to make, but it was also too difficult to pass up and I look forward to the next step in my career. As I told my colleagues last week, I know I will likely never work in such a supportive environment with colleagues dedicated to helping me hone my skills. Nor one with Crock Pot Fridays.

Editorial: New Haven's push on solar policy points to a better way to advance industry's growth

Posted on April 30, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn
