Stony Hill grant opens door for industrial park in Bristol

Posted on July 2, 2015 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — The town of Bristol has won a $25,000 federal grant that will allow the community to finally determine the development potential of a roughly 20-acre parcel of town-owned land on the western edge of the village.

The land in question is referred to as the “Stoney Hill property,” which the state of Vermont conveyed to Bristol for $1 more than two decades ago. The property has remained unused for lack of an access point and in the absence of planning funds to determine the extent to which it could be used to host light industry and businesses.

FERRISBURGH — Those involved in the dispute over Ferrisburgh farmer Wayne Stearns’ propane cannon talk about shattered dreams — and the shattered peace in a neighborhood along Lake Champlain.

From mid-July through mid-August last summer, Stearns, 43, fired the cannon — which makes a sound his neighbors liken to a shotgun — every minute or so from dawn to dusk.

New recycling rules take effect this week

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Lizzy Weiss



ADDISON COUNTY — Beginning this Wednesday, all residents of Vermont will be required to recycle metal, glass, plastic, paper and cardboard refuse in compliance with state’s Universal Recycling Law.

The law, also known as Act 148, is designed to greatly reduce Vermont’s levels of solid waste by phasing in bans on recyclables, leaf and yard debris, and food scraps from the landfill by the year 2020. The first phase of the law only prohibits the disposal of mandated recyclables.

ANwSU board members get initial look at unification law

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Many members of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union boards and several residents of the five district towns gathered at Vergennes Union High School on Wednesday to hear a review of school governance and unification provisions in a new Vermont law — and how quickly ANwSU might have to take action.

Act 46 creates incentives for school districts to unify their governance structures. ANwSU has tried to unify in three separate years and voted in favor of unification in 2010 and 2011, only to see petitioned re-votes reverse the outcomes.

MIDDLEBURY — Ted Dunakin confirmed last week that July 2 will be his last day as Middlebury’s director of planning and zoning.

Model ships bring history up close

FERRISBURGH — It just doesn’t do justice to the eminence of the naval battles that took place on Lake Champlain between the Americans and the British in the War of 1812 to simply read about them in a textbook. Captivating details are lost, and the magnitude of brave endeavors is either understated or omitted.

Middlebury police opt for Tasers as non-lethal alternative

Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday green-lighted their local police department’s proposal to acquire Tasers, a device that officials believe will better enable officers to control aggressive and assaultive suspects without having to resort to deadly force.

“Taser” is the product name for what police refer to as a “Conducted Electrical Weapon (CEW)” that uses an electrical charge to disrupt muscle control in a suspect to which it is applied.
