The club’s goal this year is $17,500, as it has been in recent years. Reiderer said the effort netted $16,000 in 2011, the fundraising drive’s most successful result.

MIDDLEBURY — The 2012 Middlebury Union High School football season got off to a promising start on this past Friday, when a young Tiger team used tough defense, crisp special teams work and flashes of offensive potential to throttle visiting Mount Mansfield, 28-6.

NFL owners are out of bounds in referee lockout

Posted on September 6, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Y’know, it’s already harder and harder to get excited about each new NFL season as more information steadily comes out about how inherently dangerous the sport, notably at the professional level, is to the human brain.

And now we have the owner-imposed referee lockout to dampen enthusiasm even further.

It’s really difficult to root for a sport that is owned and operated by some of the meanest people who walk the face of the earth.

SPRINGFIELD — The Otter Valley Union High School football team on Aug. 31 rolled to a 35-6 halftime lead on the way to a 48-6 win over host Springfield in both teams’ Division II opener.

The Otters took the lead when sophomore QB John Winslow hit senior Brett Patterson with a 43-yard touchdown pass.

A bad snap on a punt gave the Otters two more points, and OV took the kick and marched to score on a 5-yard run by Cody Gutzman.

Vergennes Day draws throngs

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — With a little help from Mother Nature, the 31st annual Vergennes Day drew a crowd on Saturday to the Little City and ran smoothly, according to city officials and its primary organizer, Marguerite Senecal of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce.

“The day couldn’t have been more tailor-made. It was gorgeous that day,” Senecal said. “And it all went like clockwork.”

Because no tickets are sold, officials have no good way to measure the crowd, which typically numbers in the thousands.

City identifies drainage issue plaguing homes

Posted on August 30, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Work has begun to correct longstanding drainage problems in the Crosby Farms development area, City Manager Mel Hawley told aldermen on at their Aug. 21 meeting.

Hawley said after a firm was hired to “televise” about 60 percent of the stormwater drainage systems, two blockages were found, some iron bars (known as rebar, which holds concrete in place) sticking into one 24-inch pipe, and a 15-by-6-inch stone in another drainage pipe.

Tax bills on the way to Panton property owners

Posted on August 27, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — Many, but not necessarily all, Panton homeowners should see lower tax bills when they open the envelopes this week, according to town treasurer M’Lissa Dayton.

Because Panton has just completed a town-wide reappraisal and individual assessments have changed, Dayton said maybe not all taxpayers will see bills asking for lower payments, half of which are due on Nov. 1 and May 1, respectively. 

“They (the results) will vary, and you will be getting them shortly,” she said.
