Addison mobile home fire displaces family of five

ADDISON — Sixty firefighters from three departments were unable to save the Addison home of a family of five on Sunday, said Addison Fire Chief Chris Mulliss.

Mulliss said firefighters from his department reached the Town Line Road home blaze within seven or eight minutes after being alerted just before noon on Sunday, but the fire had already spread too far between the ceiling and roof of the mobile home.

“It was a fully involved structure fire when we got there,” Mulliss said. “It was just a total loss.”

Vergennes eyeing sewer extension policy

Posted on December 23, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council last week revisited an issue that has cropped up often in the past two decades — the extension of city sewer service outside city lines. The council’s discussion was prompted by another in what Vergennes City Manager Mel Hawley describes as a series of calls on the topic.

This latest inquiry came from a real estate expert interested in the Ferrisburgh property across Route 7 from Vergennes being marketed by auto dealer Tom Denecker — who has himself often dialed Hawley’s number to talk sewer.

MIDDLEBURY — Defending state champion Essex visited the Middlebury Union High School team on Saturday and as expected came away with a 120.5-96.3 victory, but there were bright spots for a Tiger team with 11 sophomores and freshmen on its 13-strong roster.

With Essex choosing not to compete in the all-around, Tiger junior Leah Raymond won that event and also placed fifth on the beam.

Ferrisbugh decision to hire police coverage postponed

Merkel, George9476.jpg

FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Dec. 15 postponed until Jan. 5 its decision whether to hire the Vergennes Police Department or the Addison County Sheriff’s Department to provide supplemental police coverage and/or traffic enforcement in addition to Vermont State Police.

VSP would remain the primary responder to crime and other incidents in the town, unless the board hired Vergennes or the sheriff’s department for full protection on a part-time basis; during those hours that agency would receive 911 calls directly.

BRANDON — Early last week, Otter Valley Union High School girls’ basketball Coach Steve Keith watched his team lose in heartbreaking fashion at Middlebury and fall to 0-3 despite being competitive in every game.

Keith said his hardworking team deserved a win.

On Thursday at home vs. a Mount Abraham team that had been an OV nemesis, the Otters earned that victory, 35-33, by scoring nine unanswered fourth-quarter points to take a seven-point lead before surviving a late Eagle rally.

Ferrisburgh traffic light installation set for 2016

Posted on December 17, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Plans call for the long-awaited traffic light at the Ferrisburgh intersection of Route 7 and Little Chicago Road to be operational some time next fall, according to an email from Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, read at Tuesday’s Ferrisburgh selectboard meeting.

Town officials had lobbied for such a light for years and were informed in March 2013 that the Agency of Transportation was working on the project. That summer VTrans officials told the selectboard that a 2016 timetable was realistic.

ADDISON COUNTY — During archery, rifle and muzzleloader seasons and Youth Hunting Weekend in October, November and December, Addison County weigh stations handled 772 deer, the third lowest total in the past eight years.

But that total is misleading. Department of Fish and Wildlife officials earlier this year decided not to issue doe permits to muzzleloader hunters in wildlife zones that included virtually all of Addison County.
