MIDDLEBURY — Sometimes statistics do tell the story. Case in point: On Saturday, visiting Amherst won 26 of 32 faceoffs against the Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team.

Those extra possessions translated into a 54-37 advantage in shots and eventually into an 18-11 victory for the Mammoths, who broke open a tight game by scoring seven of the final eight goals.

Amherst, ranked No. 7 in NCAA Division III, avenged its upset loss to the Panthers in the 2017 NESCAC playoffs and improved to 8-1, 4-0 in league play.

The council on Tuesday held the first of at least two required hearings on the proposed amendments, which would also ban street-level and basement apartments in the downtown business district and make another 20-plus changes, many minor but some significant.

City Manager Mel Hawley speaks out on complaint at meeting

Posted on March 29, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Manager Mel Hawley at Tuesday’s Vergennes City Council meeting read a 600-word statement addressing the December complaint filed against him by a downtown business owner.

The statement, technically a memorandum addressed to the council, detailed why Hawley believed his specific actions outlined in the complaint — such as copying City Clerk Joan Devine with email correspondence and making sure that a privately organized effort to install holiday lights on the city green was properly insured — were appropriate.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh and Panton residents will have a chance to dispose of hazardous household waste locally on May 19, instead of having to take the garbage to the Addison County Solid Waste Management District transfer station in Middlebury.

At some point the trash district also plans temporary drop-off stations to serve two groups of outlying towns; one hazardous household waste collection day will serve Lincoln, Starksboro and Monkton in the northeastern part of the county, and the other will serve Whiting, Goshen and Orwell on the southern end.

Posted on March 26, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — A 34.91-acre parcel in Ferrisbrugh next to Vergennes is formally back on the market, but its listing agent said it could be a tough sell due to a four-year-old Act 250 provision.

The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday last week signed a new agreement with real estate broker Duncan Harris of Burlington’s Kingsland Company to market the property for $375,000. That’s the same asking price that has attracted three buyers, none of whom has been able to close a deal, since 2011.
