Utility poles blamed for groundwater pollution

Posted on June 23, 2016 |
By Gaen Murphree



MONKTON — The Monkton selectboard was concerned when a local household’s drinking well was found to be contaminated with the known toxin pentachlorophenal soon after a utility pole sited close to the home’s drinking supply was replaced in March 2014.

The board took action that started a chain of events resulting in a state environmental report, recently posted on the Monkton town website, that raised flags about this widely used chemical, also known as “penta.”

Sculpture trio.jpg

SHOREHAM — On the drive from Cornwall to Shoreham, passersby can spot four steel figures — slightly larger than human size — bending with arms raised, embracing the rolling hills and ambling horizon line with euphoric grace. 

Frank Ittleman has been collecting sculptures for 20 years, but this piece — “The Dancers” by Texas artist Jerry Daniel —is his favorite. 

“The joy that they have with their poses — every time I see it, I smile,” he said.

Pattie Candon retires from OV_3543_CMYK.jpg

BRANDON — Band-Aids, bug spray, pencils, softball videos, Gatorade, nail polish remover — the shelves and walls of an office lend a telling glimpse of the person who occupies it. And, after 38 years, Otter Valley physical education teacher Pattie Candon’s office is no exception.

The June 11 OVUHS graduation marked the end of Candon’s career at the Brandon school, but it was more than that. The longtime softball coach, gym teacher and graduation coordinator is retiring, yes, but she is also leaving the school she graduated from in 1972.

Thirty seconds at podium pay off for city man going to Democratic convention

Matt Birong_2101.jpg

VERGENNES — In baseball terms, Vergennes resident Matt Birong’s performance at the recent Democratic state convention in Barre was like hitting a walk-off homer while trailing in the bottom of the ninth. 

The-38-year-old owner of Vergennes eatery 3 Squares was a relative novice in the political world, faced scores of others seeking the same spot, and didn’t even get to campaign — and yet he was elected to be a delegate to next month’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Thurston, Monique_4871.jpg

FERRISBURGH — For 27 years, Monique Thurston beat a steady path from Mexico, Maine, to the state’s capital of Augusta in order to advocate for a variety of issues — most notably, lowering sound standards for wind turbines.

Town of Monkton pays to conserve open land

CotaFarm4889.jpg

MONKTON — Brothers Greg and Rob Cota have been farming since they were old enough to reach the tractor pedals. Now, at ages 69 and 78, respectively, they are ready to sell their land and retire.

But the idea of selling their rolling acres of prime farmland to a developer is not appealing.

Salisbury dollhouse 2 CMYK.jpg

SALISBURY — The five-year campaign to restore the tower of the Salisbury Congregational Church was in the home stretch this spring when it hit a new snag. The clock and bell stages were repaired last season, and the bell rang out over the village for the first time in years on Christmas Eve. However, painters scraping the spire this spring discovered that it was also in serious condition. Funds were diverted from painting and other repairs to deal with the emergency.
