Not this year at Mount Abraham Union High School, where commencement speakers Geoff Booth and Caroline Camara roared up to the graduation stage on Saturday atop a Harley Davidson motorcycle and delivered a high-octane message to the 149 member of the class of 2010.

By George Altshuler



BRISTOL — The town of Bristol will continue to revise its bylaws with a $12,350 grant it received this last from the state Municipal and Regional Planning Fund.

Mt. Abe offering new path to students

By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — In a storefront-turned-classroom, Mount Abraham Union High School senior Jeff Casey paused mid-sentence while his classmates chuckled.

It was the end of term, and the 18-year-old was presenting his final coursework. In his case, that meant a slim folio of poems, a sketchbook filled with photographs and collages, and, in the grand finale, a short story inspired by John Updike’s “A & P.”

Bristol tries new tack on planning

Posted on May 31, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — After a tense start, Bristol residents on Wednesday night faced their neighbors, pulled out their maps, and began talking seriously about where and how gravel extraction should happen in a town still largely divided over the contentious issue.

The conversation was the second in a series of three forums designed to turn inside out the process of town planning in Bristol, marking an effort by the town’s planning commission to trade, for the time being, public hearings for round-table conversations.

Bristol votes down police spending plan

Posted on May 31, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Bristol residents in the village police district voted down the proposed $378,806 police department spending plan for fiscal year 2011 in a narrow 15-14 paper ballot vote on Monday, May 24. At a meeting of the police district, those opposed to the budget cited the rapidly rising cost of supporting the department as their chief concern.

The proposed 2010-2011 budget would have meant a 12.5 percent hike in the amount to be raised by taxes if residents had approved the budget.

By Kathryn Flagg



NEW HAVEN — The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department and more than 70 community members banded together to conserve nearly 200 acres in the northwest corner of Bristol, finalizing a conservation easement for Jason and Nina Bacon’s property on May 21.

The new easement, which is held by Fish and Wildlife, will preserve in perpetuity 194 acres adjacent the Waterworks park on Plank Street. The land will be open for non-vehicular recreation, and the easement now protects valuable maternity colonies for Vermont’s only federally endangered mammal, the Indiana bat.

Posted on May 27, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — In a heated meeting of the Bristol selectboard on Monday night, residents on both sides of a contentious gravel pit debate pressed selectmen to make their opinion known as the proposed Lathrop gravel pit heads toward an Act 250 hearing in late June.

BRISTOL — Bristol residents are counting down the weeks to the latest chapter of a years-long fight over a proposed 26-acre gravel pit off Rounds Road. A hearing slated for June 28 will determine whether the contentious pit conforms with Act 250, the state’s Land Use and Development Act.
