Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday heard for the first time a resident question whether the city should support the proposed Vermont Gas Systems pipeline through Addison County.

Resident Jeff Margolis asked aldermen to rescind their support of the proposed natural gas pipeline, which came in the form of a 2011 letter backing Vermont Gas’s application to the Public Service Board seeking to use a reserve fund to pay for the pipeline extension from Chittenden County.

VERGENNES — The award of $237,500 in historic preservation and tax credits to the proposed $3 million renovation of the prominent — but long vacant — Shade Roller Mill and Annex buildings near the Otter Creek falls in Vergennes should move that long-delayed project forward, the property owner said, but almost certainly not until 2014.

Storm disrupts VUHS opening

Posted on September 2, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



VERGENNES — Repairs were under way in various sections of Vergennes Union High School as the school year began last Wednesday, and a series of heavy and unexpected rainstorms early last week wreaked havoc on several language classrooms.

“It overwhelmed the design of the temporary structure on the roof,” explained Co-principal Ed Webbley.

Webbley said he was unsure of the cost of the damage because VUHS is not responsible for the damage from the storm, which is covered by the construction company’s insurance.

VOH concert RSB.jpg

VERGENNES — The Aug. 20 Royal Southern Brotherhood benefit concert at and for the Vergennes Opera House may not have been a huge financial windfall for the Friends of the Vergennes Opera House (FVOH), but FVOH head Gerianne Smart said the event raised the city theater’s profile and should give the group a shot in the arm.

More than 200 people enjoyed a group that features Cyril Neville of the Neville Brothers and Devon Allman, son of Greg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band, Smart said. The new, bigger FVOH board considers the event a step forward.
