Lesbian couple in Addison says the town discriminated

Posted on March 13, 2014 |
By Laura Krantz



This article originally appeared on VTDigger.org

ADDISON — Two women have filed a lawsuit alleging the town of Addison and the selectboard chairman unfairly discriminated against them because they are lesbians.

Attorney David Bond filed the suit on March 5 on behalf of Barbara Supeno and Barbara Ernst in Addison Superior Court, though the court could not provide the documents to the public early this week because the town of Addison had not been served paperwork on the suit.

Sled dogs keep Addison man young

Posted on February 24, 2014 |
By Christy Lynn



DogSledder7977.jpg

How long in life can you continue to pursue physically and emotionally demanding hobbies that have you outside in extreme temperatures, facing challenging and even dangerous scenarios?

The answer for Ed Blechner, dog sled driver of almost 40 years, is “as long as I can.”

Blechner, now 66, first got into dog sledding in 1975. “I was always interested in dogs in functional, non-traditional ways,” he says. With a parallel interest in winter camping, working with sled dogs seemed like a natural hobby to pursue.

Wayne Howe opts out of ANwSU superintendent search

By Andy Kirkaldy



Howe, Wayne 2013_8962.jpg

VERGENNES — Longtime Addison Central School Principal Wayne Howe, who has also served during this school year as the part-time Addison Northwest Supervisory Union assistant superintendent, said late last week that he has taken a job elsewhere and withdrew from consideration as the new ANwSU superintendent.

Howe’s decision, first made public in a Feb. 7 email to ANwSU staff members, predated this Tuesday’s announcement by the ANwSU superintendent search committee that it had identified two finalists for the job (see story, this page).

Addison Central School budget draft reflects teacher cuts

Posted on January 6, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



WayneHowe8962.jpg

ADDISON — The Addison Central School board on Thursday moved closer to adopting a 2014-2015 budget that would not trigger a tax increase if residents support it in March, but would mean the loss of one full-time teacher and the school’s part-time math instructor.

Addison Northwest Supervisory Union business manager Kathy Cannon said the impact of that roughly $1.517 million spending plan on the town’s school tax rate would be a drop of about a half-cent.

Addison weighs zoning updates vs. new town plan

Posted on December 24, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Members of the Addison planning commission and selectboard reached at least a tentative consensus last week that planners should turn their attention away from updating zoning regulations and toward updating the town plan before it expires late next summer.

Planning commission chairman Frank Galgano said and selectboard chairman Jeff Kauffman confirmed that the members of the two boards at a Dec. 16 planning meeting also agreed that the Addison Development Review Board should in the meantime rely on the town’s 2007 zoning laws.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — Members of the Addison selectboard will sit down with the Addison Planning Commission on Dec. 16 to discuss the changes the selectboard proposed in November to the planners’ long-awaited update to the town’s zoning laws.

Those changes, made during a Nov. 5 work session, include calling for smaller lots and a reduction in frontage setback requirements in Addison’s Low Density Residential Agricultural (LDRA) zone, the town’s largest.

MIDDLEBURY — This past June, Addison canoe designer and builder Peter Macfarlane successfully completed a month-long solo paddle of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a series of traditional waterways that span the northern forests from Old Forge in the south-western Adirondacks of New York State, across Lake Champlain, and on to Fort Kent on the St. John River in northern Maine. The trail features upstream and downstream paddling across small and large rivers, placid and white water, small ponds and large lakes.

Addison talks zoning changes

Posted on November 11, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — The Addison selectboard last week recommended changes to the town planning commission’s long-awaited update to town zoning laws — including easing road frontage requirements in three districts and reducing minimum lot size in the large Low Density Residential Agricultural (LDRA) zone.

Selectboard members, who received the update from planners in October, said the smaller lots they are proposing — a 2.5-acre minimum rather than 5 acres — would be more affordable to first-time buyers, conserve farmland and boost the town financially.
