Vergennes looks at drug paraphernalia law

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday tabled until at least their next meeting a proposal to create a city law that would allow Vergennes police to issue city tickets for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mayor Michael Daniels said there were enough questions from city council members that they decided to wait until Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel could attend a meeting in person to make the case for an ordinance he is proposing.

City 'Laundry' bakes up brick oven cuisine

Posted on December 16, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo

VERGENNES — Near the back of Vergennes Laundry, the brushed metal walls of the industrial oven flickered orange with the light from the fire inside.

The bakery, which opened on Main Street this month, is full of eclectic combinations — the traditional, two-hearth brick oven with a sleek modern finish is a start. But even more noticeable upon entering the bright, airy space are the two fur-draped folding lawn chairs and the wall-mounted antique caribou head.

“Its name is Benjamin,” said owner Julianne Jones last Thursday evening. “He’s pretty friendly.”

ANwSU chips away at draft spending plans

Posted on November 24, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Residents of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns will almost certainly see school spending level off or drop during the 2011-2012 academic year.

But ANwSU officials said that after years of careful budgeting, reaching the full cost-cutting goal of Act 146, better known as the Challenge for Change, is not realistic in their district.

ANwSU wrestles with lower spending goals

Boards at the four Addison Northwest Supervisory Union schools are all making efforts to meet the Challenges for Change spending recommendations. Here’s what’s going on at each school:

VUHS ISSUES
Vergennes Union High School Co-Principal Ed Webbley said VUHS must cut about $165,000 from the previous budget plus new costs to reach level funding. That goal could be reached because fewer aides will be needed next year and another “position or two” will be lost through attrition, he said.

“It would cost us quite a bit, but we would still have full programs,” he said.

VERGENNES — The five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns are headed toward another vote on one-board governance, almost certainly on Town Meeting Day this coming March.

Last Wednesday, the full ANwSU board met at Vergennes Union High School with the board subcommittee that this fall has been studying unification. The board then made a formal motion to approve what will be the fifth unification vote in six years.

Divided council allows boat to dock

Posted on November 22, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — In a split vote, Vergennes aldermen last week gave permission for the 16-passenger tour boat “Moonlight Lady” to use the city’s free docks for overnight stays next summer.
Aldermen at their Tuesday, Nov. 16, meeting debated whether the dock space reserved for the Burlington cruise boat might better be left open for boaters who make the seven-mile trip up Otter Creek from Lake Champlain — and who might be more likely to spend money in Vergennes — or whether the publicity Vergennes receives from the cruises might be a greater benefit.

VERGENNES — Kennedy Brothers President Win Grant confirmed on Wednesday that he plans to end retail operations in his North Main Street, Vergennes, building after 50 years — for 41 of which he has overseen operations.

VERGENNES — Charlotte filmmaker Philip Fass has accepted and begun what he calls an exciting challenge from the Bixby Free Memorial Library Board of Trustees.

In the next 12 months, Fass, 58, plans to complete a 60-minute DVD that will not only express what the Bixby Library has meant to the five communities it has served since 1912, but also emphasize the central role the Vergennes institution can continue to play in the decades to come.

ANwSU nearing call for unification vote

Posted on November 11, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Addison Northwest Supervisory Union committee studying unification of the five-town district took no action at a Tuesday meeting, but reached a consensus that it will offer a positive review of potential one-board governance to the full ANwSU board on Nov. 17.

“It’s fair to say the committee is still very positive and feels that the unified union is a good match for our district,” said committee head Kristin Bristow after the evening meeting at Vergennes Union Elementary School.
