ANwSU eyes bond to fund projects at high school

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns will almost certainly be asked in either November or March to support a $2 million Vergennes Union High School bond that could also, in theory, approach $5 million.

The $2 million, said ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien and business manager Kathy Cannon earlier this week, would pay for a long list of what they called long-term building needs and “health and safety” items.

VERGENNES — It’s known as the “Little City.” But Vergennes, unbeknownst to many, played a huge role two centuries ago in a major U.S. Navy victory that protected the Champlain Valley from British invasion and helped end the War of 1812.

The story is succinctly acknowledged on a plaque adorning a stately, stone-pillared monument standing in the city park.

FERRISBURGH/VERGENNES — “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” the old Chinese proverb eloquently says.

University of Vermont professor David Raphael may not teach his students how to fish. But the Panton resident and owner of LandWorks — the Middlebury outdoor design firm — is equipping UVM students in his “Sustainable Landscape Architecture and Construction” class with skills for life.

VERGENNES — Back in January, guitar-playing 16-year-old Vergennes resident Matteo Palmer knew several things that turned out to be related.

VERGENNES — At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, Vergennes officials and residents will take what could be one of the final steps on what has been close to a five-year journey.

Then, in the city fire station’s basement meeting room, aldermen will convene a public hearing on new zoning regulations proposed by the Vergennes Planning Commission. A copy of the laws is posted at vergennes.org.

Planners have been working on those zoning laws since Vergennes adopted its award-winning city plan in October 2009.

Alderman back opera house project with 'short-term loan'

Posted on April 30, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen last week agreed to front $52,500 to the Friends of the Vergennes Opera House to allow theater backers to jump-start the opera house’s long-delayed sprinkler project.

Opera house officials told aldermen they could repay the money soon after the work was complete because they had guarantees of a grant and tax credits equal to the $52,500.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their April 24 meeting crossed two sites off their list of potential homes for a new city police station.
