VERGENNES — A Monday afternoon recount at Vergennes City Hall confirmed the March 7 results of the race for city mayor: former three-term Mayor Mike Daniels edged two-term incumbent Bill Benton, 270-265.

That margin, one less that 1 percent of the votes cast on Town Meeting Day, remained unchanged after two hours of painstaking counting by five members of the Vergennes Board of Civil Authority, including Aldermen Lowell Bertrand and Mark Koenig.

Posted on March 13, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Addison Central School District directors have declared an impasse in negotiations for a new contract for the newly unified district’s combined 230 teachers, and the two sides will now pick an independent mediator in an effort to make progress.

MIDDLEBURY — It doesn’t get much more intimidating than the thought of bringing another human being into the world that is completely reliant upon you for keeping it alive.

VERGENNES — The race on Tuesday for Vergennes mayor between two-term incumbent Bill Benton and former three-term mayor Mike Daniels went to Daniels by a slim margin, 270-265, in turnout of about 31 percent.

Daniels has also served five years in two separate stints on the Vergennes City Council, the second of which ended this past March.

Bluegrass Gospel Project 14.jpg

VERGENNES — Musicians are a tricky bunch. Passionate — yes. Playful — absolutely. Committed to their music — more than anything. So why is it that so many of our beloved bands break up?

In the case of the Bluegrass Gospel Project, their lead vocalist Colby Crehan is moving west for her husband’s new job at Grand Teton National Park, and the band figured it was as good a time as any to call it quits. They’re playing their last concert this Saturday evening at the Vergennes Opera House.
