Farmers look to alternative energy: science converts cow manure to profit for dairies

ADDISON COUNTY — Light streamed in through the paper-thin walls of the temporary shed, a small, greenhouse-like structure plunked down on a Bridport dairy farm. Here, Mark Hoffman is dabbling in alchemy.

Hoffman, a project manager for Montpelier-based Algepower, peered into shallow, plastic troughs stacked one above the other. He was between experiments, and the troughs were mostly empty, but when the system is in full swing the plastic slings are filled with murky green water and hungry algae.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh Central School Principal JoAnn Taft-Blakely on Thursday said school maintenance men Wayne Barrows and Gerry Blair would be two of the town’s most important employees this week.

That’s because this summer’s $1.5 million project to improve the school — including installing new heating, ventilation and electrical systems; putting on new, long-lasting rubberized roofing; replacing stained ceiling tiles and rotting soffits; and insulating the space between the ceiling and roof — will be completed on time.

Snapshots: Hank Dimuzio

Posted on August 14, 2009 |
By Chelsey Pletts



Two years ago a Valentine’s Day blizzard swept through Middlebury, leaving behind a wall of snow.

For Hank Dimuzio, this was a problem.

His eight-foot high wire fences, designed to keep his herd of fallow deer inside, now rose a stunted four feet to Dimuzio’s shoulder as the snow created an icy stepladder to the other side. Dimuzio was astonished to find most of his herd huddled under their shelter near the top of his farm. But others were stranded on the outskirts of the far paddock where a grove of evergreens provided shelter.

At the borders of the house run colorful beds that illuminate the brick walls, and flowers stand out against the back fence. It is difficult to imagine the house without the flower beds that ornament it.

Quinn stepping down after three decades of service

Posted on August 13, 2009 |
By John S. McCright



ADDISON COUNTY — John Quinn has served as Addison County State’s Attorney for 24 years and was a deputy state’s attorney for seven years before that.

More than anything, in looking back over his three decades prosecuting crimes here he says he appreciates the citizens who’ve supported him.

“I hope they think I’ve done a good job,” he said.

It’s pretty clear that most of them did. He only once faced an opponent in the race for the elected office.

On Monday, Quinn, 59, announced that he was retiring from the office he has occupied for majority of his career.
