After 38 years, National Guard trumpeter takes 'farewell tour'

By ANDY KIRKALDY
VERGENNES — Jim Lanpher’s 38-year career with the Vermont National Guard’s 40th Army Band ends on Aug. 10 because he will then reach the mandatory retirement age of 60.

The Vergennes resident still remembers 49 years ago when he decided to start playing the trumpet. He was in school in his native Maine when he made the choice.

Music company reps displayed their goods. Among them were trumpets, the same instrument Lanpher’s father played in a U.S. Army career that began in World War II.

By ANDY KIRKALDY
VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Tuesday will begin reviewing a draft 2009-2010 city budget prepared by City Manager Mel Hawley. Hawley said if adopted, the budget would not raise the municipal portion of the city’s property tax rate.

He will present at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday a roughly $1.53 million spending plan that cuts almost $16,500 from current spending levels. The budget does not include the city’s sewer budget, which is supported by user fees.
