Towns cope with privacy issues

September 6, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Addison County town clerks have developed their own policies on releasing citizens’ property tax information until the Legislature revisits the manner in which education funding information is reflected in public tax records.

That was the word from officials in several area towns last week, as they continued to grapple with the new way in which property tax prebates are distributed to qualifying taxpayers under the Vermont’s education funding laws.

To spread the cost of education equally, the state’s Act 60 and Act 68 education funding laws until this year mandated that the Vermont Department of Taxes set a statewide property tax rate, calculate property owners’ tax bills based on local conditions, and send checks, called prebates, to homeowners whose incomes do not surpass a given threshold.

Whiting library to be revitalized

September 6, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

WHITING — The Whiting Free Library has no heat, no electricity and no plumbing. Operating out of the town’s old Baptist church pressed right up against Route 30, it doesn’t provide patrons with anywhere to park either. The building is equipped with a small woodstove, but librarian Tammy Wilbur says the ceilings are so high it never really warms up. So for as long as anyone can remember, the library has been open only an hour a week, and during the winter it is always closed.

But all this could change, if Wilbur and a group of library trustees and volunteers get their way.

Inspired by some classes she recently took with the Vermont Department of Libraries, Wilbur decided it was about time to revitalize the old library, open it for more hours during the week and work to transform it into a welcoming community center.

“It’s not that it hasn’t been open, kids have been using it,” Wilbur said. “But if we’re going to really make something of this we have to really jumpstart it a little.”

Local builders go extreme

September 6, 2007

By LEE J. KAHRS

BRANDON –– Nothing like a little pressure for a good cause.

Brandon building contractor The McKernon Group this weekend not only will build a dream home for a needy family in all of four days, but viewers nationwide will be able to watch the house come together in a future airing of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” television show.

Starting Friday, the company will have four days to construct a brand-new home from the foundation to the roof for the Vitale family in the Windham County town of Athens.

“This family has gone through a lot and they deserve a new home,” McKernon Group President Jack McKernon said at a press conference on Wednesday. “We are thrilled to be able to help them.”

Lou and Sara Vitale have been living in a run-down hunting camp for the past five years. They have two children, Kane, 3, and Louie Jr., 2, who was born with several birth defects. He suffers from arthrogryposis, a contraction of the joints, club feet, and skeletal dysplasia, or dwarfism.
