April began with longtime Porter Medical Center CEO Jim Daily announcing he would step down after 32 years. But not anytime soon: Porter officials will have plenty of time to find a replacement — Daily’s retirement will be effective in 2016.

Vergennes Union High School directors were working to pare down the impact of a budget draft that, if approved, could trigger a 20-percent increase in the VUHS portion of the property tax rates of the five sending towns. Ferrisburgh Central School directors drafted a spending plan calling for an 11 percent increase.

“I always felt a calling to work with kids,” Mayer said.

And Mayer dutifully met his calling, serving thousands of children during a career that has spanned four decades.
