VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council last week got its first look at a draft 2013-2014 city budget, one that City Manager Mel Hawley prepared and said could mean the second increase since 2008 in the tax rate devoted solely to paying for municipal services.

Aldermen will make the final decision on the budget and the municipal portion of the tax rate by the end of June. That portion of the tax rate does not support school spending.

GMO small photo-2.JPG

VERMONT — As summer heats up and the growing season is in full swing, groups around Vermont are stepping up their activism on an agricultural issue that is stirring up controversy around the state and around the world: genetically modified crops.

MIDDLEBURY — Unseasonably bad wind and rain on Sunday drove the Middlebury College commencement ceremony indoors for the first time in 21 years. The 557 graduates of the class of 2013 gathered in a packed Nelson Recreation Center to receive their diplomas, in a ceremony that was in turns funny, thought-provoking and emotionally moving.

Overflow spaces around campus live-streamed the ceremony for friends and relatives whom the Nelson space — which could seat only 1,800 of the anticipated 5,000 commencement visitors — could not accommodate.

MIDDLEBURY — She’s been visiting Helen Porter Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center (HPHRC) just about every Tuesday for more than three years, but the senior residents still line up for her arrival, hoping to get some eye contact and a handshake or two. No need for an exchange of words.

Not that the celebrity in question can speak in complete sentences; her vocabulary is confined to the occasional “woof.”
