WEYBRIDGE — Around 20 Weybridge and New Haven firefighters responded to a blaze Monday morning that destroyed a horse barn at 1572 Quaker Village Road.

Firefighters arrived at the scene at around 9 a.m., according to Weybridge Fire Chief Bill Sinks. By then the barn was fully involved.

“There was nothing we could really do to save the building,” Sinks said of the roughly 30-foot-by-40-foot structure. He identified the owner as Cindy Strate.

MIDDLEBURY — It’s not unusual for children to announce what they’d like to be when they grow up, such as a fireman, pro athlete or even astronaut.

Jack Mayer decided in 7th grade that he was not only going to be a physician, he was going to be a pediatrician.

“I always felt a calling to work with kids,” Mayer said.

And Mayer dutifully met his calling, serving thousands of children during a career that has spanned four decades.

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County now has one Chevrolet dealership.

On Dec. 12, Tom Denecker and partner Mike Capra, owners of Denecker Chevrolet in Ferrisburgh and Vergennes, completed their purchase of Middlebury’s Shea Motors, in a deal brokered by both dealerships’ parent company, General Motors.

Shea Motors owner Jerry Shea had been set to sell to a third party after 36 years on Route 7 south of Middlebury village, Denecker said, when GM exercised a standard right of first refusal and offered the same deal to Denecker and Capra.

JerrySchwarz6077.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Jerry Schwarz has just about seen it all during his almost 38 years as a public defender. He’s defended clients on charges ranging from petit larceny to murder, with just about every other offense in between. But the gregarious attorney with his trademark bushy gray beard and booming voice will retire from his post as Addison County public defender in order to live life more fully outside of the courtroom.

“I love the people and the work, but you can’t do it forever,” Schwarz said during a recent interview.

By John Flowers



CORNWALL — The Cornwall selectboard on Tuesday evening tabled action on a negotiated agreement with Vermont Gas Systems regarding the Phase II natural gas pipeline, following pleas from most of the approximately 25 people who turned out at the board’s meeting to argue the pact was flawed.

The agreement, unveiled this week, calls for Cornwall to drop its opposition to the project in exchange for Vermont Gas making some substantial financial concessions that would collectively reduce local residents’ property taxes by an estimated 4 percent.
