Legion fielder IMG_2146.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — A year after playing in the Vermont American Legion championship final and falling just short, the Addison County American Legion team in 2015 saw many players age out of the program, resulting in a young roster particularly short in the pitching rotation.

AC went from a penthouse suite to a basement studio apartment, winning just once and forfeiting a couple late-season contests simply because Coach Mike Estey’s team didn’t have anybody to put on the mound.

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council this week will be studying a $1.848 million draft general fund budget for fiscal year 2016-2017 that, if approved as is, could raise the city’s municipal tax rate from 75 to 84 cents.

A 9-cent hike in the municipal tax rate would translate to an additional $180 of annual taxes for a $200,000 home.  

That spending does not include the user-supported sewer budget, and City Manager Mel Hawley on Tuesday also recommended a $34 annual increase in the per-unit sewer rate.

Clippings: Other court rulings could curb guns

Posted on June 16, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



In late June 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on a case originating in Arizona that may give the nation its best long-term hope for some sort of thoughtful gun control legislation.

We’re talking about establishing meaningful background checks that might prevent someone who beats his wife regularly and has twice been interviewed by the FBI from buying a semi-automatic weapon that he can use to murder 49 innocent people and wound 53 more.

VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School junior Brandon Cousino recently handed a $2,402 check to the Vergennes Lions Club, some of it his own money, most of it community donations, and all of it based on his state championship wrestling season at 182 pounds this past winter.

Cousino, a 17-year-old Ferrisburgh resident, recruited a half-dozen businesses in the Vergennes area and elsewhere in the county plus several family members to donate to the Lions’ charitable initiatives, with the amounts depending on how well Cousino fared on the mat.
