Feds scrutinize dairy farms in sweep for illegal aliens

Posted on November 23, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



ADDISON COUNTY — Some Vermont dairy farmers found themselves in the crosshairs of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Thursday when the agency rolled out its largest ever audit of employers in a crackdown on businesses shirking laws about employing foreign workers.

Reports Friday from the Addison County Migrant Workers Coalition and other farmers indicated that perhaps only four or five farms in the state would be issued subpoenas for employment records, though initial reports about the audits placed that number much higher.

ADDISON COUNTY — “It’s just a no-brainer to be a localvore on Thanksgiving.”

That’s according to Francie Caccavo, the owner of Olivia’s Crouton Company in New Haven. And it’s not hard to see why Caccavo embraces eating locally this time of year: Though the growing season is giving way to frosty temperatures, many farmers are still selling a bounty of root vegetables, squash and other produce.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s police dog program faces an uncertain future as newly appointed Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel. a Middlebury police officer, will be bringing his K-9 Akido with him to the Little City.

Merkel established Middlebury police’s K-9 program around five years ago, beginning with Blade, an animal he had inherited from a Vermont State Police trooper who had been deployed overseas with a National Guard unit. Blade has retired, but was replaced last June by another dog, Akido. Merkel owns both dogs.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — About two dozen Ferrisburgh residents and Ferrisburgh Central School parents and teachers who gathered in the FCS gym on Thursday night first talked about what they loved about the town’s elementary school.

The art of holiday lights

ADDISON COUNTY — Ten thousand lights, a half-mile of extension cords and 60 hours of hard work setting up — for Salisbury resident Wayne Smith, that sounds like a recipe for Christmas spirit.

Smith takes to his yard every November to start stringing up an extensive display of lights and holiday decorations that, for 15 years, has been his way of marking the season. It started small, with a few decorations here and there, but by the time Smith bought a bit more property at his home at the north end of Lake Dunmore, he had the room to go crazy.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Peak fall foliage is long gone, but folks traveling through downtown Middlebury during the next few weeks will see quite a sight in the form of a major man-made attraction that, unlike the changing leaves, won’t return next year.

Vehicles bearing huge concrete beams — ranging in size from 65 feet to 110 feet long — were scheduled to wind their way on massive trucks through portions of the downtown on their way to the new Cross Street Bridge site on Nov. 19 and 20, and again on Dec. 1, 2, 3 and 4.
