VERGENNES — As Lisa Sprague enters a classroom at Vergennes Union Elementary School carrying a bundle of freshly harvested vegetables, she is confronted with a throng of students hoping to help her do whatever is necessary to make the food ready to eat.

Such a scene has become not uncommon for Sprague, the food service manager at VUES. The school recently kicked off the second year of its student garden, which not only produces food for the school lunch program but also gives students hands-on lessons in many subject areas.

Graham Shelter eyes renovation

VERGENNES — Officials of the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter are working toward a major renovation of the shelter’s original building in Vergennes, which sits prominently at the intersection of Main Street and Monkton Road.

On June 8, the Vergennes City Council agreed to support the homeless shelter board’s application for a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) that could pay for most, but far from all, of a project that would follow sensitive historic preservation guidelines.

VERGENNES — The students of the Vergennes Union High School class of 2010 were not alone as they marched into the standing-room-only school gymnasium last Friday evening. The institution’s 50th graduating class was followed by more than half the members of the class of 1960 — VUHS’s first graduating class.

“There were 60 members in the class of 1960, and it is fitting that they should share the birthday milestone of 50 years this evening,” said Ann Sullivan, a former VUHS English teacher and 1960 alumna who took the floor to wish the students well.

Former Middlebury police canine dies

VERGENNES — Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel this week was mourning the loss of his first police dog, Blade, who had to be euthanized due to rapidly failing health brought on by degenerative myelopathy.

German shepherds, as was Blade, are particularly susceptible to degenerative myelopathy, a progressive disease in the spinal cord in older dogs, Merkel said. It typically begins with the loss of coordination in the hind limbs and often progresses to paralysis.

Sale of opera house chairs to fund city sprinkler project

Posted on June 7, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on May 25 gave permission to Vergennes Opera House backers to sell the theater’s no-longer-used fixed chairs as a way to help pay for the sprinkler project that will benefit the Main Street building that houses both the theater and city offices.

The cost of that project to protect the building recently ballooned from about $60,000 to $80,000 when it was learned there was not enough water pressure in the original design to reach the top of the structure. City Manager Mel Hawley said an extra pump needed would add about $20,000 to the cost.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen have taken a look at the first draft of a proposed $1.6 million 2010-2011 city budget that if adopted would not require an increase in the portion of the city tax rate that supports municipal spending.

That $1.6 million figure does not include the sewer budget, which is funded by users, or the fire department budget, which is funded by the several towns protected by the department. It does include Vergennes’ share of funding the fire department.

Hattler praised as he leaves boards

Posted on May 31, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — For the second time in recent months, a longtime member of both the Vergennes Planning Commission and the Development Review Board has decided to step down. On May 18, Mark Hattler, a member of both boards since January 2001, submitted his resignation to aldermen via email.

Hattler’s decision, based on his wish to spend more time with his children, follows the departure earlier this spring of longtime planning chairman Neil Curtis, who resigned after a move out of Vergennes.

Mayor Michael Daniels said Hattler would be as hard to replace as Curtis.
