WOODSTOCK — Otter Valley Union High School senior boys’ basketball player John Winslow reached the 1,000-point milestone in a Wednesday night game played at Woodstock.  

Winslow, a three-sport standout at OV, scored his 1,000th point by sinking a third-period three-pointer. Overall, he scored 12 points to pump his career total up to 1,004 and join former teammate Ryan Kelley, who reached the 1,000-point plateau in 2013, as a quadruple-digit scorer. Prior to Kelley’s feat, the Otter who most recently became a 1,000-point scorer was Pat Tulley in 1998.

VUHS-3.jpg

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.
