Way sought to make taxes more equitable

Posted on July 21, 2011 |
By Michelle Monroe (St. Albans Messenger)



ST. ALBANS — School taxes are the missing piece in an ongoing effort to revamp Vermont’s tax structure, according to Rep. Carolyn Branagan, R-Georgia. To remedy that problem the state recently hired a California firm to study the state’s education taxes.

Earlier this year, a blue ribbon tax commission released an analysis and recommendations for the state income and sales taxes.

Patchwork: Good fences don't always make good neighbors

Kate's Garden mid-July 2011.jpeg

Moby Dick the woodchuck is back.

No, he is not an albino woodchuck. He just keeps resurfacing. At the moment, he looms larger than life in my tiny garden. I analyze the damage in the morning, raise my fist, and mutter epithets toward the sky — though he’s a groundhog. There’s no question I’d like to shoot him, but I can’t. We live in town.

ADDISON — Members of the greater Addison community were working this week to help out Val and Tim Birchmore and their five kids, who lost their home on Lake Street in West Addison to a fire last Saturday night.

Around 75 firefighters from five towns rushed to the fire, which started around 7 p.m. Addison Fire Chief Chris Mullis said on Monday that the fire was under investigation, but that it appears to have started with an outside gas grill on the back porch. It spread to the house and quickly took off.

Cup final once again proves soccer unique

Posted on July 21, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Once again, we learned that what the rest of the world calls football is a fickle sport.

In the championship game of the World Cup for women’s soccer, the American team had more than a dozen chances to score, but converted just twice — although both were sensational goals.

The first came courtesy of player of the match (just one observer’s opinion) Alex Morgan. It came on her lethal left-footed strike after Morgan beat her defender to Megan Rapinoe’s beautifully struck long ball into Japan’s end.

Retired lineman climbs the ladder

MIDDLEBURY — At age 100, Bill James can cross the word “bucket” off his bucket list.

James donned a helmet last Wednesday and at long last got a lift in a bucket truck, courtesy of his former longtime employer, Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS).

It was a special treat for James, who toiled full-time as a lineman for the state’s biggest electric utility for 34 years, from 1940 to 1974. Back in those days, linemen had to climb up the utility poles. Today, the bucket trucks gently lift workers up with the flick of a switch.
