City Legion honors longtime firefighter

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



web_bobjenkinsandplaque.jpg

VERGENNES — Former Ferrisburgh Volunteer Fire Department Chief Bob Jenkins remembers as a teen in his native Vergennes hearing the siren on top of City Hall, racing to the fire station to find out where the action was, and then heading to watch firefighters do their job.

“That got the adrenaline flowing,” said Jenkins, now 66.

At the age of 16 he followed in his father’s footsteps and approached Vergennes Volunteer Fire Department Chief Ralph Jackman and signed up, beginning a 50-years-and-counting career in the fire service, including 17 years as Ferrisburgh’s chief.

VERGENNES — A new owner recently took over Main Street fixture Vergennes Wine & Beverage, but he hopes that other than new paint, flooring and faces, its customers will notice little change from the way the store has been operated for the past dozen years.

Monkton’s Paul Kerin, a 24-year veteran of the beverage distribution business, bought the Stone Block store from longtime owner Andy McCabe on March 1.

FairPoint Internet outage hits local firms

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A software glitch within the FairPoint Communications system interrupted both e-mail and Internet service for 280 customers in the Middlebury exchange this past weekend, a glitch that cost one local store at least $6,000 in lost business.

The service outage began early Saturday morning and lasted until late Monday morning, according to FairPoint spokeswoman Sabina Haskell.

“It was a software issue,” said Haskell. “It was a difficult issue to track down.”

Editorial: Getting to know Plato

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



I admit the last time I read Plato’s works had to be in the early 1970s as a college student. And, like most of you, I hadn’t thought much about it since; at least not in a direct way.

My loss.

So it was with interest that I met Victor Nuovo, professor emeritus of philosophy at Middlebury College, a few months ago to talk about a series of essays he was writing on Plato’s last work called “Laws.” As the front-page story in today’s issue reports, after a few conversations, we decided to run them in the Addison Independent.

Monkton town offices put on hold after vote

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



MONKTON — Monkton officials gunning for the construction of a new town hall and community center are regrouping after Monkton voters on Town Meeting Day narrowly defeated a $1.4 million bond to fund the proposed municipal building.

Voters defeated a proposed bond, 226 to 193.

Though the proposed bond did not win voters’ approval, chair of the Municipal Building Committee John Phillips said the committee was actually encouraged by the outcome of the vote.

“Given the economic situation, it was pretty close,” said Phillips, who also sits on the town selectboard.

Guest editorial: Exemptions - 230 + 1?

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By Ross Connelly



Editor’s Note: This editorial by the Hardwick (Vt) Gazette spotlights a House bill that limits access to public records. The examples used are local to Hardwick, but could easily pertain to Addison County.

Vermont state law gives people the right to see public records concerning matters conducted by public bodies. The law states “it is in the public interest to enable any person to review and criticize their decisions even though such examination may cause inconvenience or embarrassment.”

Clippings: Tragedy strikes in tropical paradise

Posted on March 11, 2010 |
By John Flowers



“He’s dying!”

The shrill cry cut like a knife through the searing Costa Rican air that had been doing a lethargic tango with the sounds of crashing surf, clinking glasses and Jimmy Buffet’s “Cheeseburger in Paradise” crackling through a primitive boom-box.

It was a jarring wake-up call from a pool-side seat last month during a family vacation to the warmer climes of Central America. Our family tries to join the snowbirds for a week each February to recharge the batteries. A little fun in the sun, some family togetherness and some memories to last a lifetime.
