Dairies hunker down for more low prices

Posted on April 8, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont dairy farmers slogged through the worst milk prices they’d seen in decades for much of 2009, struggling to stay in business as they sold their milk at prices so low they could not cover the cost of production.

Now, milk price forecasts suggest that 2010 isn’t shaping up to be much better for dairymen, many of whom went into debt to the tune of $800 to $1,000 per cow last year in order to continue farming.

MIDDLEBURY — The economy may be bad, but Middlebury College is having no trouble attracting students eager for a liberal arts education.

In fact, according to Dean of Admissions Bob Clagett, this year the admissions office at the college handled 7,978 first-year applications, which is both an increase of 16 percent over last year and the largest applicant pool ever. The larger volume of applicants also meant that admissions officers saw more students with very high extracurricular and academic standings.

“It made for a very challenging year for us,” said Clagett.

Company helps elders live at home

Posted on April 8, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



LINCOLN — Bern Terry wants his clients to think of him like the family nephew: friendly, available and ready to step in when an elder needs a little extra help around the home.

That concept of flexible, personal home care is at the heart of a new for-profit senior care business expanding this month to Addison County. As the company’s name implies, Extended Family steps in to help senior citizens remain independent and in their homes — much like a family member or neighbor might pitch in as someone ages.

By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — Proponents and opponents of a gravel pit near the Bristol village met again this week in the latest chapter of a years-long fight over a proposed 26-acre excavation project off of Rounds Road.

VERGENNES — The $75,000 the city of Vergennes recently received from Vermont’s Downtown Transportation Fund will help pay for improvements to the bus stop at the city’s major downtown intersection and fund a 160-foot handicap-access platform that will serve three Main Street businesses.
