MIDDLEBURY — During his four years on the House Agriculture Committee, Rep. Chris Bray, D-New Haven, has frequently advocated for farming practices and food policies that are socially responsible and add value to Vermont’s food commodities.

He is now participating in just such a venture.

Vermont Coffee Company confirmed on Thursday the hiring of Bray as its executive vice president, one of four new positions recently added at the fast growing, Middlebury-based firm.

MIDDLEBURY — A group of 18 Vermont inns and bed and breakfasts, led by the owners of the Swift House Inn in Middlebury, are offering free stays this winter to members of the Vermont National Guard, many of whom are returning home from a one-year tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Nearly 1,500 Vermont National Guard soldiers are returning home from Afghanistan after participating in the Vermont Guard’s largest mobilization since World War II. The first soldiers returned home before Thanksgiving, and the rest are expected home by Christmas.

By John McCright



ADDISON — The Addison Volunteer Fire Department is wrapping up a year in which community members not only gave their time and efforts in responding to emergencies, but also reached into their wallets and gave financial support to the department.

The total raised from this month’s tree lighting fund-raiser is not complete, but Geoff Nelson of the department’s finance committee said a few thousand dollars has been raised so far, and a few donations are still coming in.

Editor’s note: This article is the second of a three-part series on Addison County residents who have sought help from the Quit Tobacco Program at Porter Hospital in order to kick their cigarette habits.

MIDDLEBURY — Wally Bailey, 62, of Salisbury was only six years old when he smoked his first cigarette.

“At that point, I must have seen people smoke,” Bailey said. “My parents didn’t smoke. No one in my family smoked. I just thought it was cool, I guess.”

Bailey’s friend would steal packs of cigarettes from his parents and the two would smoke them together in secret.

WEYBRIDGE — State Sen. Claire Ayer has grown accustomed to traveling throughout the Green Mountain State in representing the interests of Addison County and Brandon.

But the four-term Democrat’s customary travels, usually from her home in Weybridge to the Statehouse in Montpelier, recently ramped up to some veritable globetrotting.

Ayer returned on Monday from a weeklong visit to Taiwan, as co-leader of a 10-person delegation made up of legislators from four New England states: Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire.

LEICESTER — Even hundreds of feet from the Moore family’s Leicester home, fragrance hangs in the air. Step inside the house, and the scent is even stronger: lemongrass, pine, cinnamon, lavender and peppermint, and a background bouquet that’s best described as clean.

And although a visitor is immediately struck by the strong smells, no one in the family notices the scent.

“We don’t even smell it anymore,” said Linda Moore, mother of the clan.

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.
