FEMA aid tallies to rise from 2011 state disasters

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — It’s a new year, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency late last month said it will be working well into 2012 to help individuals, towns and the state recover from damage wrought by two major weather events in 2011.

Between last spring’s record flooding and Tropical Storm Irene in late August, FEMA received 8,418 registrations for disaster aid throughout Vermont in 2011, including 178 Addison County individuals and families that requested aid after Irene.

Briggs-bookstore-closes.jpg

BRANDON — The polished but ancient wood floors creaked with familiarity last Saturday as old friends and customers stopped by the Briggs Carriage Bookstore in downtown Brandon one last time.

Erin Keyes, 18, considers Briggs an integral part of her life. Having grown up in Brandon, some of Keyes’s earliest memories are set in the bookstore.

“Just seeing something I’ve grown up with end, it’s like part of my childhood going away,” she said, as she sat in the bench nook of the children’s section with her mom, Laura King.

Hancock apartments stay affordable

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By John Flowers

HANCOCK — The Addison County Community Trust (ACCT) will acquire and renovate Hancock’s most prominent affordable housing apartment building, thereby preserving the low-cost rental units for at least the next 20 years.

At issue is the five-unit Mountain View project at 123 Route 125, which for the past 30 years has accommodated low-income tenants under the federal Section 8 housing program. That program pays rental subsidies for tenants earning less than 50 percent of the area median household income, which is currently $35,750 for a family of four.

Top 10 2011: Irene, the Champlain Bridge and the economy

Posted on January 3, 2012 |
By Addy Indy Staff



1: Irene, flooding, snow wreak havoc

Humorist Mark Twain said that everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. In 2011 there was a lot to complain about on the weather front. A hurricane that was downgraded to a tropical storm before it reached the Green Mountain State was hands-down the biggest news story of the year. But there was so much other awful weather this year — so much that in any other year it would have been a top 10 story even without Irene — that we made the weather our top story of the year.

ADDISON COUNTY — By the end of this year, there will be 7,747 more acres of land in Vermont that will never be developed.

That’s the total acreage of new Vermont Land Trust conservation easement projects across the state, which includes 1,241 in Addison County. Among those who sold land were Harvey and Donna Smith, who run a diversified beef farm in New Haven, and siblings Karlene, Nancy and Randy DeVine, who sold land they’d inherited to neighboring farmers Jim and Jane Danyow in Ferrisburgh.
