VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Sept. 23 confirmed the city still has in hand a $21,000 Department of Buildings and General Services grant for a new toddler playground despite an error in its initial application.

A letter from the department told aldermen that state officials appreciated being updated about the mistake in a survey percentage of how many residents supported the playground, and it asked the city to keep state officials updated on the construction timing and possible move of the playground site.

BRISTOL — Visiting Windsor High School shut down the Mount Abraham/Vergennes football team’s offense and used a big-play rushing attack to earn a pivotal Division III victory, 35-6, on Saturday.

The result left both teams at 3-2 with three regular-season games left. Both the Eagles and Jacks are in position to make the D-III postseason, but Mount Abe Coach Ernie Senecal said his team has no margin for error if the Eagles are to meet their preseason goal of earning a top-four seed for a second straight time.

PeaceOneDay1696.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School students on Friday spoke, sang and read poetry at their 10th annual Peace One Day rally to promote harmony at their school and in their community as well as around the world.

VUHS has held a student-led all-school assembly each year since 2005 to celebrate the annual Sept. 21 United Nations International Day of Peace. Last week’s all-school Peace One Day event, held on the VUHS front lawn, was moved to Friday because Sept. 21 fell on a non-school day.

BRISTOL — On a virtually ideal Tuesday afternoon for running at Mount Abraham Union High School — 60 degrees, windless and mostly cloudy — the Middlebury boys’ cross country team took second and the Eagle girls were third to highlight the Eagles’ only home meet of the fall.

Tiger junior Christopher Garner finished fifth in the seven-team boys’ race for the top finish among local runners, while Eagle senior Chris Carter (eighth) and MUHS junior Nikhil Plouffe also cracked the top 10.

FERRISBURGH — One day earlier this month, the pungent smell of basil filled the Ferrisburgh Central School’s front hallway.

On other days, students carried into the building baskets of onions, potatoes, or any of a number of other vegetables from the school’s garden, almost all of which are offered to and then eaten by the same kids who have helped plant and pick them.

Posted on September 22, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After Friday’s high school girls’ soccer game between rivals Mount Abraham and host Vergennes, both coaches talked about confidence.

Eagle coach Dustin Corrigan saw five players score in a 5-0 win that was his Division II team’s fourth straight after two close opening losses to tough D-I opponents.

All that had been missing, Corrigan said, was for the Eagles to show offensive consistency, something they showed in outshooting the 2-4 Commodores, 30-3.
