VERGENNES — The loudest phase of Green Mountain Power Corp’s major project to rebuild parts of its Vergennes dam was set to start Monday morning, when demolition experts will begin what is expected to be about two weeks of a half-dozen blasts a day to clear out bedrock to allow replacement of what company officials call decaying piping.

Traffic on West Main Street will be stopped when blasting occurs, and motorists can expect delays.

Pollution in Lake Champlain, Part 3: Treading water: slow clean up continues

Posted on July 26, 2010 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Warm weather earlier this month sparked blue-green algae blooms in Lake Champlain’s waters, prompting the Vermont Department of Health to caution boaters, swimmers, pet-owners and other residents to avoid contact with the contaminated water.

The water may not be clear, but this much is: Pollution in the form of phosphorus entering the lake poses a serious threat to Lake Champlain’s waters.

MIDDLEBURY — Irena Sendler has become a national hero in Poland, and deservedly so. During World War II, she risked her life to rescue 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto, often knocking on the doors of Jewish homes and convincing parents to entrust her with their children.

Editorial: Of defense spending, tax cuts and Vermont-size problems

Posted on July 26, 2010 |
By Angelo Lynn



As Vermont candidates face questions about how to grow our local economy, in Washington the consequences of Bush-era policies — particularly the tax cuts of 2001 and 2003, and the rapid escalation in defense spending — are coming home to roost, making it all the more likely that Washington can no longer provide additional stimulus to jumpstart the economy, putting more of an onus on states to provide visionary and bold visions of their own.

Jones converting Laundromat to bakery

Posted on July 26, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



VERGENNES — Last week the old Vergennes Laundromat on Main Street was mostly empty, except for a few stacks of boards and the hum of power tools emerging from the open doors.

Inside, 25-year-old Julianne Jones and fiancé Didier Murat were working atop the newly poured concrete floors, cutting and measuring the wood that would become the bathroom walls. Along the wall in the middle of the long room was a platform, sitting at the ready for the brick oven that will form the centerpiece of Jones’s bakery when it opens in September.

Patchwork: A short discussion on the cucumber

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Barbara Ganley



I planted my first seed when I was three. At least that’s how the family story goes. While “helping” my mother in the garden shortly before we left for the summer, I was given a packet of cucumber seeds to hold, and managed to sprinkle them, without anyone realizing, among my father’s tea roses. We returned in August to a scene from “Little Shop of Horrors”: vines everywhere, crawling over the helpful, thorny roses, along the railing of the back stoop, up the fence and to the tops of the towering arborvitae. My father hated cucumbers.
