MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s lacrosse team made it four wins in eight days on Saturday, when they returned from a successful weeklong road trip and defeated NESCAC rival Connecticut College, 14-6.

All four of those wins, including Tuesday’s huge 10-8 victory over previously undefeated Gettysburg, then ranked No. 2 in NCAA Division III, followed the Panthers’ stunning, 11-9, opening home setback to Bates in which they lost a big second-half lead.

MIDDLEBURY — The massive health care reform bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Sunday and signed into law by President Obama on Tuesday represents an important step forward but falls short of perfection, say Vermonters familiar with the legislation.

ADDISON COUNTY — The four local high school boys’ basketball teams did not set the state on fire this winter. Only Vergennes crested .500, and injuries prevented the talented Commodores from reaching what might have been championship potential.

But each team benefited from fine individual performances that are recognized here on the 2010 Addison Independent Boys’ Basketball All-Star Team.

Clippings: Citizens, reporters need to see truth

Wow, protesters spitting returned to the news for the first time since the Vietnam War.

Except this time, a health care bill protester outside the Capitol on Saturday really did spit, on a Congressman.

Back in the late ’60s and early ’70s, spitting didn’t happen. Try to find one documented account of a Vietnam vet being on the receiving end. Or one single picture. Google “spitting on Vietnam Vets.”

ADDISON — For thousands of years the area of Lake Champlain where Vermont’s Chimney Point and New York’s Crown Point stretch toward each other has played a crucial role in history.

Now, the major find of what appears to be a 279-year-old French fort may help Vermont Division for Historic Preservation officials shine a brighter light on the Addison side of the lake.

Middlebury men's lax hitting its stride

MIDDLEBURY — On Saturday, the Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team took what its players and coach believe is a major step forward with a 12-5 pummeling of visiting Wesleyan, which often rivals the Panthers for the NESCAC title.

In improving the 3-0, the Panthers continued to play stingy defense — they have just allowed 16 goals so far in this young season — and get outstanding work from junior goalie Ryan Deane (14 saves vs. the 3-3 Cardinals).

MIDDLEBURY — An Addison District Court sentencing hearing scheduled for Monday for former Vergennes police chief Mike Lowe was postponed to allow a Vermont Department of Corrections probation officer time to prepare a report that will be used in the proceeding.

Lowe on Jan. 11 accepted a deal with state prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of prescription drugs, a felony, and to one count of obtaining prescription drugs by fraud. Lowe also agreed not to contest a charge of neglect of duty.

City council hears bar petition

Posted on March 18, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At last Tuesday’s city council meeting, aldermen dealt with a petition asking that they deny Bar Antidote permission to serve alcohol on its patio, which has five tables with 20 chairs. The business is at the corner of School and Green streets.

Area residents Cindy Paquette and Val Kittredge presented the petition, signed by about 20 residents, asking aldermen to deny the permit.

“It is incredibly noisy every single night the bar is open,” Paquette said, adding that she felt “the light (from the patio) and the noise is beyond intrusive.”

VERGENNES — Alderman David Austin on Tuesday told his colleagues that a Vergennes resident has started a petition for a citywide revote on the question of whether the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union should change its governance system.

Vergennes residents voted on March 2 by a 232-142 margin, or 62-38 percent, in favor of a switch to one board to govern all four ANwSU schools. The other four ANwSU towns joined the city by similar margins — the overall percentage tally was 63-37.
