LEICESTER — After nearly two years of work, the Leicester selectboard and planning commission are in the final stages of crafting a new town plan.

The new plan will replace the 2003 version, which expired in 2008. Selectboard chair Diane Benware said last Thursday that the final rewrites had just been completed, and copies were mailed to the selectboard and planning commissions for review.

By Andrea Suozzo



LEICESTER — The Leicester selectboard at its April 2 meeting heard reports of illegal trash dumping on Lower Bullock Road.

Town Health Officer Jim Russo reported that he had inspected the site and found prescription bottles, syringes, receipts from a liquor store and a Rite Aid drug store and three coy dog carcasses. He also found a name in one of the garbage bags on the site.

Russo passed the information on to Gary Urich, an enforcement officer from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.

LEICESTER — It was one of very few “Maple Open House” signs seen over the annual March weekend during which Vermont sugarhouses invite in the general public, but the Sweet Success Sugar Shack is looking in a new direction.

A sudden warm-up in temperatures in late March brought a quick and then painful end to the annual maple sap run this year, leaving area sugarmakers with below-average sap supplies.

MIDDLEBURY — Imagine driving from Middlebury to Jacksonville, Fla. Now, replace your car engine with a paddle and muscle power, and imagine canoeing the same distance — about 1,200 miles.

This spring, 10 young men will leave Lake Dunmore in a fleet of wood-canvas canoes they built themselves, bound 1,200 miles north for James Bay, Canada. Instead of finishing in the sunbelt, though, they’ll chase spring ice on their paddle through Quebec and Ontario.

The population of milfoil in Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake has grown tenfold since 2009, and is expected to double again this season, according to Jay Michaels, a trustee of the Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake Association (LDFLA)

LEICESTER — Forget about teaching writing for standardized tests.

These days at Leicester Central School, it’s all about the craft of creating essays, fiction and poetry.
