MONKTON — Imagine if kids were the ones testing the boundaries of technology. Imagine if they were programming artificial intelligence into robots they built themselves. And imagine if, when widespread problems arose, students invented products to solve them.

Since September, a team of 10 Monkton youths has done just that: created and programmed an autonomous robot made of Legos and invented a prototype lunchbox to protect food from contamination in preparation for the 2011 First Lego League Robotics Competition.

New rate will save Monkton funds

Posted on August 11, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



MONKTON — The Monkton selectboard on July 25 announced that the bond taken out in 2002 to fund the 2003 fire station addition was refinanced by the Vermont Municipal Bond Bank at a lower interest rate. Meeting minutes indicated that this reduction in future interest payments will save the town money.

“Interest rate reductions don’t kick in until 2015 … so the refinancing will only affect the last two years of bond payments and will only … range from $700 to $1,000 in savings,” said Charles Roumas, town treasurer.

MONKTON — Students at Monkton Central School recently got a special treat: Natalie Kinsey-Warnock, an author from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, came by to do writing workshops with the students and judge the William C. Shattuck Farming in Monkton writing contest.

Contest founders Eugenie Doyle and Sam Burr run Last Resort Farm in Monkton on land that they purchased from Bill Shattuck. His family had owned the land for 150 years before he sold it, and after his death, Doyle said she and her husband wanted to find a way to memorialize him.

According to Monkton Volunteer Fire Department Chief David Layn, the call was made by firefighter Robert Howard, who noticed the house was on fire on his way to work, around 6:45 a.m.

Cousino was asleep in the house at the time, but awoke coughing from the smoke. He climbed out of his bedroom window and slid down the shed roof, according to Layn.

After 37 years, Monkton clerk prepares to retire

By John Flowers



monktonclerk1540.jpg

MONKTON — Longtime Monkton residents will notice a conspicuous omission on their Town Meeting Day ballot this year.

For the first time since 1973, Carmelita Burritt will not be running for town clerk. It will indeed be the end of an era in Monkton and the beginning of a new one, as Sharon Gomez is likely to become the community’s first new town clerk since the Nixon administration.

“It’s more and more work,” a smiling Burritt said on Monday. “I’m tired out.”

Students learn from surroundings

By Ellie Moore



MONKTON — After tromping in shin-deep snow through some of the 11 eco-zones on the Willowell Foundation’s property off Stoney Meadow Lane in Monkton, we come to a clearing. I am sure I have stumbled upon some kind of Narnia, the fantasy land created by children’s author C.S. Lewis.

A large shelter insulated in old sails looms like a giant’s cave. The shelter’s frame is built of cedar beams the students harvested from the woods — without a single nail. The imposing structure will be replaced with a cabin this spring.
