By John Flowers



ORWELL — The multi-year saga of determining whether Orwell continues to independently govern its village school, or cedes that control to an 18-member district board, will likely be laid to rest by a referendum this November to be fielded by voters in the communities of Orwell, Castleton, Benson, Hubbardton, West Haven and Fair Haven.

AubuchonCat8085.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — It may be the height of summer, but mice and other rodents in Vermont are acting like it’s autumn, or even winter.

Months ahead of schedule they’ve begun to nest in cars, lawnmowers and houses, where they settle into the walls and crank out babies. At night they skitter through the rafters, clickety-click, gnaw on electrical wiring and creep through kitchens, leaving trails of droppings.

WHITING — Whiting residents have agreed to pay extra property taxes over the next 20 years in order to bankroll a major overhaul of both their municipal fire station and town shed.

Residents on Aug. 14 voted 65-24 in favor of floating a 20-year bond for a combined total of $395,000 to do the work.

The Aug. 14 referendum was actually the second time Whiting residents endorsed the two projects. Back on June 26, citizens voted 40 to 22 to support the fire station project, and 34 to 28 to remove the current town shed and replace it with a new structure.
