By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — A Tuesday forum at Addison Central School will look at the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification process. It is sponsored by the ANwSU committee that is spearheading what is expected to become the third formal effort since 2005 to unify union governance under one board.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., committee members will to address unification issues, including those that led to Addison’s petitioned defeat last year of the one-board initiative. Addison overturned its approval of unification in May 2009 after all five ANwSU towns backed it overwhelmingly that March.

MIDDLEBURY — It was back in June of 1980 that Eli Olinick celebrated what is believed to have been the first Bar Mitzvah ever in Addison County, held in Middlebury College’s Warner Hemicycle.

The traditional Jewish ceremony would prove more than Olinick’s symbolic transition to religious adulthood. It would become the catalyst for the organization of Addison County’s Jewish community, Havurah, which this year is marking its 30th anniversary.

Posted on October 21, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 board on Tuesday heard from more than a dozen teachers and community members who requested that any cuts to the 2011-2012 budget not affect direct educational services to students.

Some advised the board to target extra-curricular activities and administrative positions in the Middlebury district, while others suggested school directors put away the budget cutting knife altogether.

ADDISON COUNTY — An estimated 50 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 turned out to vote in the 2008 presidential elections, setting national records for youth turnout.
In the lead up to the elections this November, though, clerks in Addison County say they haven’t seen a huge rush of younger voters registering.

“I haven’t had any young kids come to the counter (to register),” said Vergennes city clerk Joan Devine, thinking back to the past couple of months. “Just our regular people — ones who have moved into town.”

Commission begins Bristol rezoning effort

By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — Imagine what Main Street Bristol will look like 10, 20 or 50 years down the road. Now imagine what the downtown area could, or should look like and one will come close to the task that the Bristol Planning Commission has been assigned.

On Tuesday, Bristol planners sat in the conference room of the temporary town offices trudging their way through piles of color-coded maps and complex terms while deciphering the subtle differences between definitions like “Village Mix” and “Village Business.”

MIDDLEBURY — Vermont artist and Middlebury College alumna Sabra Field stood at the base of the Wright Theater building at her alma mater on Monday, observing the progress of the translation of her linocut print “Cosmic Geometry” into a mural on the eastern wall of the gray building.

The 16 squares of Field’s original print had been but half-applied by midday on Monday — the mural artists were still busily filling in with color what they had blocked out and traced onto the wall once the sun finally appeared over the weekend.

NEW HAVEN — Authorities are warning residents of New Haven, as well as the general public, to be wary of wild animals that act strangely after a rabid raccoon attacked a local man and his brother on Summer Road near New Haven Mills this week.

Larry Buck said he was out walking with his brother, Bob, on the road near his home Tuesday afternoon when a snarling raccoon confronted them. Buck, who has been battling health problems, could not run from the animal.

The raccoon bit Buck’s knee and latched on, but Bob Buck, who was visiting from Minnesota, beat it off with Larry Buck’s cane.

Posted on October 21, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School Co-principal Ed Webbley said only time will tell if the VUHS juniors did well on New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) tests on Oct. 5, 6 and 7.

But school officials are optimistic that years of focus on improving test scores will pay off: VUHS teachers have coordinated their efforts at helping students whose classroom work has lagged, and the school sets aside time at midday to allow teachers to give extra time to students.
