City may buy waterfront land for park, trail

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Jan. 27 met for the second time in two weeks behind closed doors to discuss a land deal with Mayor Bill Benton and his sister Betsey Benton.

Ownership of that land, along Otter Creek, could help the city create a park on the river’s east side while connecting the city’s MacDonough Drive docks with Main Street. The city has, since 2010, leased the parcel from the Bentons for a nominal annual fee. The land is in the flood plain, limiting its value.

Clippings: All taxpayers have 'skin in the game'

Posted on February 5, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Let me be clear: I value holding onto my money as much as anybody. I brown-bag, buy in bulk, and browse for products on sale.

And I wish my taxes were lower. For the record, we pay almost $6,600 on a Middlebury home assessed at about $250,000. Property tax relief doesn’t really help much, if at all, depending on fluctuations in one of our incomes.

MIDDLEBURY — Entering Tuesday’s home game with first place in the Lake Division on the line, Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball coach Chris Altemose had points of emphasis for his Tigers.

To defeat a Commodore team that came to MUHS at 12-1, Altemose told the Tigers they would have to be solid defensively, particularly in keeping the VUHS ballhandlers in front of them; play at their preferred fast pace, but still make sure to get back and deny the Commodores in transition; and focus on rebounding.
