Shumlin grateful for strides in education

Posted on May 20, 2013 |
By John Flowers



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin on Thursday gave high marks to the 2013 General Assembly, a body that he said granted 90 percent of his education priorities and completed one of the most productive sessions “in years.”

“It was a very productive session,” Shumlin said during a phone interview with the Addison Independent. “I thought they got more tough things done than I’ve seen a Legislature get done in a first half of a biennium in many, many years. There is a lot to celebrate with Vermonters.”

VERGENNES — Not too long after artists and Vergennes residents Cat Cutillo and Ross Sheehan met in New York City, they knew they wanted a space that would serve as a gallery and base of operations for her photography and his work in several artistic media.

Cutillo, 33, a New Hampshire native and Tulane University graduate, and Sheehan, 35, a Salisbury native, Syracuse University and 1996 Middlebury Union High School graduate, didn’t fulfill that goal in their first several years working in the art world together in New York this past decade.

STARKSBORO — An unusual nature-and-arts-based preschool program is wrapping up a successful pilot year.

The Wren’s Nest Preschool is a project of the Willowell Foundation and run by a mother-daughter team of educators. Katie and Karen McEachen of Bristol co-teach the weekly sessions, which are currently run out of Camp Common Ground in Starksboro.

“Willowell has been doing nature education for high schoolers for a decade, and they thought that a preschool would be a really nice sister program,” Katie McEachen said in a recent interview.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School baseball team kept up its recent winning ways on Thursday, when the Eagles rode the two-hit pitching of Josh Cyr past visiting North Country, 5-2.

Editorial: Gas and the public good

Posted on May 20, 2013 |
By Angelo Lynn



The Middlebury Select Board made as eloquent and rational an argument for supporting the Vermont Gas pipeline to Middlebury as can be made. The statement, which was published as a letter accompanying a front-page news story in last Thursday’s Addison Independent, is considerate of others’ perspectives, well-reasoned on all points, and defends what it sees as the best path at this time for the town and residents of Middlebury.
