Low-income workers helped by tax credit

Posted on February 14, 2013 |
By Addison Independent



VERMONT — The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can make life a little easier for working Vermonters struggling to make ends meet with a credit up to $5,900. In addition, any family with dependent children who receives the Vermont EITC is automatically income eligible for food benefits through 3SquaresVT — meaning their income and resources don’t count. The IRS estimates one in five eligible taxpayers could miss out on this valuable tax credit because they don’t check it out.

MIDDLEBURY — In a Tuesday night college men’s basketball game with more twists and turns than Route 125 on the way to Ripton, Amherst made the last in a series of incredible plays and left a packed, roaring Pepin Gymnasium with a 104-101, triple-overtime win over Middlebury.

The win gave the 22-2 Lord Jeffs the NESCAC title with a 10-0 record in league play and home court advantage for the NESCAC postseason, and will at least preserve their No. 2 ranking in NCAA Division III.

BRISTOL — Middlebury Union High School senior wrestler Gabe LaBerge won his 100th career match on Saturday at the NVAC team championship meet, which was hosted by Mount Abraham.

LaBerge, a 195-pounder, earned the landmark victory in dramatic fashion. He avenged a defeat from a week before to Mount Mansfield’s John Sirois, 5-3, and scored the winning points on a third-period takedown as the clock hit 0:00.

BRISTOL — Like most nights for the Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball team, Monday lacked drama: The Eagles rolled to a 25-2 second-quarter lead over visiting Missisquoi and coasted to a 54-12 win over the 1-14 T-Birds.

That’s the way it’s been in most of the 15-1 Eagles’ games: They have won 10 of their 15 games by 20 points or more, and 14 by at least 12. Otter Valley is the exception — OV came within 46-38 back on Dec. 19.

Guest Editorial by Gov. Shumlin: From poverty to prosperity

Posted on February 14, 2013 |
By Gov. Peter Shumlin



As I travel around the state visiting with Vermonters, I am grateful for how well we are doing. Our unemployment rate is consistently among the lowest in the nation. We are coming out of the Great Recession in better condition than our neighbors.  Our revenues have rebounded by 27 percent since its depths. And we are fighting back from Tropical Storm Irene stronger than ever.

Clippings by Trent Campbell: Barely registering on cool-­o-­meter

Posted on February 14, 2013 |
By Trent Campbell



I like to think that sometimes, rarely, I know, but still, sometimes … sometimes a balding 49-year-old can be a little hip, a little cool. But a viewing of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards show on Sunday night left me feeling that there is no such thing as a little hip or a little cool. You’re either all the way hip or not at all. Here is a break down of the show that put me in my place.
