FERRISBURGH — Sand Road resident Lauren Fisher told the Ferrisburgh selectboard last week the barking is worse in the summer.

“It’s all hours of the day and night,” Fisher said. “It wakes us up at 2 a.m.”

Family friend Ziggy Comeau described how the smell hit her when she got out of her car in the Fishers’ driveway, a few yards away from a small ranch home that hosts up to 30 dogs.

“My eyes were burning,” Comeau said. “It was bad.”

New community theater 'shows up' with Anne of Green Gables musical

Picture this: The lights go dark on a theater packed with an eager audience, tension builds in the silence until places are taken and props set. Everyone is frozen; waiting for the cue to begin the scene.

How do you feel?

Some of us get knots in our stomach at the idea of performing, so we imagine ourselves in the audience; others put themselves behind the scenes. But for the theatrically inclined, well, they see themselves front-and-center on the stage.

Sewer leak in Brandon flows into waterway

Posted on March 15, 2018 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — Old pipes and erosion led to a break in a Brandon sewer pipe, spilling over 1 million gallons of raw sewage into the Neshobe River.

The break was discovered on March 7, and the spill was estimated to have begun Feb. 22, two weeks earlier.

Brandon Town Manager Dave Atherton said the area around the pipe, down past Mill Lane almost to the post office, had eroded and exposed the 12-inch concrete sewer pipe, which dates back to the 1930s. The pipe was broken open in two places where it runs along the Neshobe between two manholes.

Jessie Raymond: Embracing the sameness of winter

By Jessie Raymond

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a long, cold, snowy winter. Everyone knows that about me. And now here we are, in mid-March, with fresh snow on the ground.

Isn’t it great?

I worried that the winter storm we had last week was going to be the last snowfall of the season.

“Boy, I’m going to miss this,” I said, putting on my heavy coat, insulated boots, hat and mittens and tromping out through the snow to feed the chickens, same as I have done twice a day for the past 962 days or so.

BURLINGTON — A New Haven man is facing federal charges of distribution of child pornography and assaulting a federal agent during a court-ordered raid at his Addison County home.

The Event

Cantastoria is a street theater form championed by Bread and Puppet — a North East Kingdom theater company founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann — that involves the performance of pictures through the use of song, movement, text and puppetry. The word “canta-storia” comes from Italian (sung story), though the form has its roots in India circa 600 AD and has flourished in various guises all over Europe and Asia for the last 1,500 years.
