Porter Medical Center directors endorse affiliation with UVM Health Network; one hurdle left

Posted on February 20, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Porter Medical Center (PMC) and University of Vermont Health Network (UVMHN) boards on Thursday voted unanimously to sign an affiliation agreement, a move that would result in reduced independence for Addison County’s hospital but net it greater financial stability, some key capital improvements and a more diverse menu of health care services for local patients.

Thursday’s board votes were a monumental step, but the affiliation move still hinges on some changes to Porter’s organizational bylaws.

n BristolFirehouse LEAD 8182.jpg

BRISTOL — The old North Street firehouse in Bristol has been standing empty since last July, when the Bristol Fire Department moved into its station on West Street.

Now three parties are vying to bring new life to the century-old building as a machinery museum, a bed and breakfast or a private residence.

The potential purchasers of the historic village property on Monday presented their ideas to the Bristol selectboard, which quizzed each on its plans. Selectboard members postponed the final selection until their next meeting, Feb. 27.

VERGENNES — Ross Sheehan is back in town, again. He and his wife, Cat Cutillo, bopped from New York City (where they met), to Reno, Nev., to San Francisco, to Vergennes, back to San Francisco, and are now back in Vergennes. Maybe this time for good?

The first time they moved to Vergennes in 2011, the couple fulfilled a longtime dream and opened Outerlands Gallery — showing their own work as well as others — at 37 Green St. But “dream jobs” pulled them back to the Bay Area in 2014.

Coyote hunt attracts protestors: Contest proceeds with limited success

Posted on February 16, 2017 |
By John S. McCright



n HuntProtest8028.jpg

BRISTOL — The coyote hunting contest scheduled for this past weekend by a Bristol man came off as planned. Plenty of protesters showed up, as well as almost three dozen hunters.

The only thing missing was a plentitude of coyotes.

Todd Baldwin, organizer of the “Wile E. Coyote Hunt 2017,” said the results were “not good”; only four coyote carcasses were turned in from a total of 35 registered hunters. Two of the coyotes were bagged in Rutland County, one in Panton and one in Starksboro; the largest was 42 pounds.
