NEW HAVEN — Some community members are initiating conversations with local and state decision makers on how to make Addison County’s roads more friendly for cyclist and walker.

“I don’t think cars should necessarily be king of the road,” said New Haven resident Susan Smiley.

Smiley and fellow New Havenite Doug McKain undertook a survey on the walk- and bikability of New Haven’s roads. They took the idea of a survey to the selectboard last spring, got it green lighted, and recently presented the survey results to the board.

BRISTOL — “It’s always been just five women,” said Anne Majusiak of Bristol’s One World Library Project.

But looking at the non-profit group’s contributions over the past nine years, it seems that five women (plus a coterie of helpful volunteers) can bring the world to Bristol — and show the local community the diversity of cultures and heritages it holds within itself.

Posted on October 12, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes City Council on Tuesday raised the city’s base per-unit sewer rate by $10 per quarter, or $40 per year, and will calculate a similar increase for Vergennes’ metered commercial sewer ratepayers.

Posted on October 12, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — After the Oct. 5 incident in which two Northlands Job Corps students snuck into Vergennes Union High School during school hours, an evaluation of VUHS security procedures is under way that will almost certainly mean changes to the school’s physical plant and protocols, according to officials.

The male Northlands students entered VUHS through a back door that had been left propped open against school policy, and then talked their way into a classroom by posing as two of the German exchange students now visiting the school.
