Posted on October 8, 2012 |
By Michelle Monroe (St. Albans Messenger)



ST. ALBANS — When the U.S. House of Representatives adjourned on Sept. 28 without passing a new Farm Bill, it not only left dairy farmers without a safety net, it raised the specter of chaos in agricultural markets.

ADDISON COUNTY — Leonard Barrett can remember when he moved to his East Street farm in Bridport in 1970 with his parents and his brother. There were eight dairy farms on the street.

Today, his is the last one. By the end of next week, there won’t be any.

Across the nation, a confluence of factors is putting family-owned dairies — long the backbone of many rural American towns — out of business.

Lois McClure - Kids learning the ropes, Kathleen Carney.jpg

VERGENNES — When Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (LCMM) officials were planning this year’s four-month trip through New York, Canada and Vermont for the museum’s replica canal schooner, the Lois McClure, there was little debate about the final stop.

Azimuth project in Monkton.jpg

MONKTON — In the woods of the Willowell Foundation land in Monkton, artist Marela Zacarías is leading the local community in turning 1,024 square feet of reconstructed silo into a permanent sculptural mural installation. Zacarías’s project, called “Azimuth,” is part of a series of  artist residencies at Willowell that interpret both pre-Columbian design motifs and Vermont’s natural environment. According to Zacarías, “Azimuth” “is meant to work as a meditation on transformation and an offering to nature.”

EAST MIDDLEBURY — Mairead Harris and Andrew Stein first met during a summer session at the Middlebury College Language School in 2007, where they were both studying Mandarin Chinese.

“We may have exchanged a couple of ni hao’s,” Harris recalled, referring to a Chinese greeting, “but we were at different levels and didn’t spend much time together.”

A year later, the two met again after they happened to join the same study abroad program in Hangzhou, China. The rest was history.
