Students learn from surroundings

MONKTON — After tromping in shin-deep snow through some of the 11 eco-zones on the Willowell Foundation’s property off Stoney Meadow Lane in Monkton, we come to a clearing. I am sure I have stumbled upon some kind of Narnia, the fantasy land created by children’s author C.S. Lewis.

A large shelter insulated in old sails looms like a giant’s cave. The shelter’s frame is built of cedar beams the students harvested from the woods — without a single nail. The imposing structure will be replaced with a cabin this spring.

Landfills in Bristol and Salisbury undergoing changes

Posted on January 31, 2011 |
By Tamara Hilmes



BRISTOL — On Feb. 10, a public meeting will be held in Bristol to discuss the town’s application to the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation for two variances concerning the operation of its Pine Street landfill.

According to Town Administrator Bill Bryant, the state has changed the way in which it interprets its regulations regarding the operations of municipal landfills. The new interpretation would require the town of Bristol to build enough money into the budget to cover closure fund obligations — an amount that nears $1 million, Bryant said.

BRISTOL — In front of the usual high-volume, standing-room-only crowd that goes along with the rivalry between the boys’ basketball teams from Vergennes and Mount Abraham union high schools, the visiting Commodores on Friday took a big lead over the Eagles, withstood Mount Abe’s third-quarter surge, and pulled away for a 64-39 victory.

The result improved VUHS’s season record to a misleading 5-6. Four of their losses have come to Division I teams, and four were by five points or fewer.

Posted on January 27, 2011 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — A three-way race for two selectboard spots will spice up an otherwise tame local election ballot in Middlebury on March 1.

Eric Murray, 49, of East Middlebury will oppose incumbent Selectmen Dean George and Craig Bingham in the race for two three-year terms on the board. Monday, Jan. 24, was the deadline for candidates for municipal and school offices to file their nomination papers to get on the March 1 Town Meeting Day ballot.

Alderwoman bows out; Addison races loom

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Few races for elective office in March are shaping up in the five-town Vergennes area, but the Little City will have one new alderman, while a persistent Addison critic of Addison Northwest Supervisory Union unification is seeking two seats on school boards, including on the one panel that would govern ANwSU if that measure is approved.

The new member of the Vergennes City Council will replace two-term incumbent Christine Collette, who opted to step down for what she called four good reasons — that’s the number of grandchildren she has.

BRISTOL — “We’d rather talk than walk,” read the signs that a group of more than 100 teachers in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union held up along Main Street in downtown Bristol on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.

Despite sub-zero temperatures on Monday, members of the Addison Northeast Education Association (ANEA) picketed as planned in hopes that their demonstration might bring the ANeSU school boards back to bargaining table.
