Local real estate market showing mixed signals

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — The good news, according to local appraisers, is that unlike many areas of the nation the bottom has not fallen out of the Addison County real estate market in the past three or four years.

The bad news? Well, just because the county is not as poorly off as say, overbuilt foreclosure centers like Nevada or Florida does not mean the market is booming.

Ferrisburgh appraiser Charlene Stavenow said sales indicate that prices in most segments are no more than holding their own.

ACORN encourages student food projects

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein



ADDISON COUNTY — Feeding students local food is all well and good, but how can they be encouraged to participate in food and agriculture efforts outside of the cafeteria?

For the Addison County Relocalization Network, the answer is the new Farm to School Entrepreneur Awards, which this year will honor students working on food-related projects. ACORN AmeriCorps staffer Hannah Mueller, who is coordinating the awards, hopes to see projects boosting everything from agriculture and farming to nutrition and food awareness efforts within schools.

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — It’s a new year, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency late last month said it will be working well into 2012 to help individuals, towns and the state recover from damage wrought by two major weather events in 2011.

Between last spring’s record flooding and Tropical Storm Irene in late August, FEMA received 8,418 registrations for disaster aid throughout Vermont in 2011, including 178 Addison County individuals and families that requested aid after Irene.

Top 10 2011: Irene, the Champlain Bridge and the economy

Posted on January 3, 2012 |
By Addy Indy Staff



1: Irene, flooding, snow wreak havoc

Humorist Mark Twain said that everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. In 2011 there was a lot to complain about on the weather front. A hurricane that was downgraded to a tropical storm before it reached the Green Mountain State was hands-down the biggest news story of the year. But there was so much other awful weather this year — so much that in any other year it would have been a top 10 story even without Irene — that we made the weather our top story of the year.

ADDISON COUNTY — By the end of this year, there will be 7,747 more acres of land in Vermont that will never be developed.

Among those who sold land were Harvey and Donna Smith, who run a diversified beef farm in New Haven, and siblings Karlene, Nancy and Randy DeVine, who sold land they’d inherited to neighboring farmers Jim and Jane Danyow in Ferrisburgh.

ADDISON COUNTY — Despite the ever more chaotic rush for all things new and discounted during the holiday season, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed in years: the Thanksgiving turkey dinner.

Tradition held true this year, according to Addison County’s largest turkey producers, Misty Knoll Farm in New Haven and Stonewood Farm in Orwell. They say a sluggish economy hasn’t stifled the demand for Vermont-produced turkeys.

VERGENNES — The first day of class can be daunting for any child.

But integrating into a new school can be even tougher for a child without a home — a phenomenon on the rise throughout the county, state and nation.

The most recent statewide figures show there were 1,042 homeless children and youths enrolled in Vermont public schools during the 2009-2010 academic year. That was up from 838 students in 2006-2007.

Final deer season ends with kills down sharply

Posted on December 15, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — Sunday’s end of the muzzleloader and bow deer seasons brought no more good news for local hunters than the end of November’s rifle season. The numbers of deer weighed at local reporting stations this month declined dramatically from recent years.

If anything, the drop for the combined results for October’s bow season and December’s muzzleloader and bow season was even steeper.
