MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School hockey team erupted on offense against winless Mount St. Joseph on Saturday and coasted to a 14-1 home win.

Emmy Hescock paced the attack with four goals, and Saige Twombly added three goals. Gen Beloin and Maria Ploof chipped in with a pair of goals apiece, and Theresa Huestis, Sara Boudah and Kayla Quesnel-Cousino contributed one tally each.

Tiger goalie Ashley Howlett stopped nine of the 10 MSJ shots she faced as the Tigers improved to 2-1. That win total equals that of the Tigers’ regular season last winter.

Mt. Abe faces unexpected $475,000 in spending cuts

BRISTOL — An accounting mistake sent up a major roadblock for the Mount Abraham Union High School board of directors this week, sending school board members and administrators back to square one to draft the high school’s 2010-2011 spending plan all while grappling with an unexpected additional $475,000 in necessary cuts.

By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Three “Cow Power” farms that pioneered the generation of electricity from manure are suffering because they say the price they are paid for that power doesn’t meet the cost of producing it. Now they are getting some relief from the Public Service Board, which last week approved a temporary hike in that price.

Vergennes backs bus to Middlebury

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday reconsidered a decision made during budget deliberations earlier this year and voted unanimously to support a planned upgrade to the Addison County Transit Resource’s Tri-Town Shuttle.

Tuesday’s decision was made easier by a lower price tag: $1,350 instead of an earlier request of about $3,700. ACTR Executive Director Jim Moulton said that figure was pro-rated to represent the amount the city would owe this fiscal year based on the formula the agency used to charge towns that benefit from its services.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — With the addition of deer killed during the muzzleloader season that concluded this past Sunday, Addison County weigh stations handled 840 deer this fall during bow, muzzleloader and rifle seasons, plus Youth Hunting Weekend.
