Posted on October 4, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON — An accounting error made in Panton Town Hall that slipped past the Panton selectboard when the board adopted its tax rate resulted in the town in August sending out incorrect tax bills. Town officials confirmed on Wednesday those bills were based on a rate about 13 cents lower than it should have been.

Now they are asking Panton’s 320 taxpayers not to pay their tax bills until new ones arrive, probably early next week. The bills for Panton’s annual taxes will also have a new due date for the first installment, Nov. 9 instead of Nov. 1.

Brewers in Brandon Pete, Riker.jpg

BRANDON — Looking around a collection of freshly unboxed tanks, fixtures and other equipment in the Conant Block building one day last month, Pete Brooks said the space was finally starting to look like a brewery. 

“It’s a nice change of pace,” he said. “We’ve been waiting for so long.”

The three massive barrels arrived last month from Oregon. The boxes were so big they had to remove one of the massive windows at the front of the building to accommodate the delivery.

By Addison Independent



The same good folks who launched the “Take It Or Leave It” free farm stand in Lincoln have come up with another idea to help their neighbors: Lincoln Apple Day. Slated for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at Burnham Hall, the event will teach local residents how to make cider, applesauce and apple pie. Participants are asked to bring their own apples; any extra food at the end of the day will be distributed to those who need it. Anyone with questions about the event should call Jim Brown 453-4563.

MIDDLBURY — The Otter Creek Audubon annual meeting and dinner will be held this year at Middlebury College’s Kirk Alumni Center on Thursday, Nov. 8. Nationally known author and ornithologist Scott Weidensaul will be the featured guest.
