MIDDLEBURY — Wall Street pundits have been invoking the term “Great Depression” in conversations about the current state of the national and global economies.

Those pundits should talk to someone like Charlotte Forte, who turned 100 last month and actually lived through the greatest of financial meltdowns — as an adult — more than 70 years ago.

Charlotte was born on Oct. 22, 1909, the middle child to John and Ruby Gilmore of Bristol. Growing up in a farming community enhanced her knowledge of nutrition — something she cites as one of the keys to her longevity.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Work has begun on a new Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association (MVAA) headquarters off South Street that will give the organization a more than five-fold increase in space and allow it to offer centralized dispatching for fire and emergency services throughout the county.

“We will be opening a new building in our 40th year (in 2010).”

Aldermen could take up issue of ownership of city rec land

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen on Oct. 27 inched closer to a decision to accept ownership of the land under the city pool and nearby recreation facilities and discussed a way to help finance long-term operation and maintenance of the pool.

City Manager Mel Hawley suggested that the city council should request that the Vergennes ID school board, which now owns the land but is scheduled to dissolve next June, sell an adjacent eight-acre parcel it also owns and turn the proceeds over to the city.

The take from the sale could create a fund to help Vergennes afford pool ownership, he said.

Posted on November 2, 2009 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Planning Commission Chairman Neil Curtis discussed at the Oct. 27 city council meeting two issues planners have dealt with in recent months: backyard chickens and off-site sandwich boards.

Essentially, Curtis said planners believe that all chickens are illegal under current zoning, but that new laws could offer room for compromise.

“That’s something we’d like to consider changing for smaller numbers,” he said, noting planners also believe aldermen should consider a “nuisance ordinance” for backyard fowl violations rather than harder-to-enforce zoning provisions.
