Letter to the editor: Workers did great job in difficult weather

Posted on January 22, 2018 |
By Barbara Cheney and Bill and Jean Fifield and Paul and Maggie Nocca and Terry and Cindy AmRhein



We lost power for eight hours in last week’s sleet/ice storm (January 12) due to very high winds that brought down a very large tree, which took out our power. This happened at 2 a.m. Friday morning and lasted until around 10 a.m. Green Mountain Power linemen came out here to Way Lane in Bridport on Lake Champlain, and worked on the site in the dark, high winds, sleet and freezing rain for eight hours until it was repaired.

Bursting Vergennes Union High School pipes shut gym, flood halls

Posted on January 18, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Flooding due to frozen pipes in the Vergennes Union High School sprinkler system has twice struck the building, most recently on Monday in the main VUHS hallway — but more seriously back on Jan. 2, when water damage to the school’s main gymnasium floor will put the gym mostly out of service for the next six weeks.

On Monday, a sprinkler pipe froze and then burst over the VUHS health office, just off the main hallway connecting the school’s two wings, at about 5:30 p.m.
