Racine making a second run at top

By Michelle Monroe (St. Albans Messenger)



ST. ALBANS — Given the state’s fiscal challenges, his four primary opponents aren’t being realistic in what they are telling voters, according to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Doug Racine.

“I think they’re living in campaign land, which says, nothing bad can ever happen with a $100 million deficit. We can fix it without it costing us anything at all. There’s too much of it in Washington,” Racine said.

EAST MIDDLEBURY — State Senate candidate Amy Sheldon believes additional health care reforms will not only create more fit Vermonters but will also provide a potent panacea for the economic ills the state is facing.

“Health care is a huge driver in the cost of public education and government services,” said Sheldon, an East Middlebury Democrat. “If we can find a way to make (health care) more affordable for all Vermonters, we will solve a number of problems.”

ADDISON COUNTY — Fall apple picking season is coming a little early this year.

In fact, many area orchards have already begun to offer pick-your-own apples, because their earliest apples are already ripening.

“Our apples are about 10 days early, which is significant,” said Bill Suhr, who owns Champlain Orchards. “It's probably the earliest crop we’ve ever seen.”

He added that his fall raspberries are already ripe, also more than a week ahead of expectations.

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Middle-bury’s local option tax revenues continue to slightly out-pace the amount needed to meet debt service on the new Cross Street Bridge project, providing a harbinger, municipal officials said, of both a recovering economy and a future community debate on what should be done with any excess funds.

Middlebury Assistant Town Manager Joe Colangelo confirmed the town netted $170,869 in local option tax revenue during the second quarter of 2010, an amount that is $5,452 greater than the second quarter of 2009.

MIDDLEBURY — Most elementary school students would not have the slightest idea what to do in a college biology lab.

But seeing his 4- and 7-year-old daughters in the lab was exactly what inspired Middlebury College biology professor Jeremy Ward to apply for a National Science Foundation grant to teach genetic biology to schoolchildren in Addison County.

“They don’t know that they’re not supposed to be able to do it,” said Ward of his daughters. “When I watch (them) in here and say ‘Do this,’ they go and do it.”

BRIDPORT — Addison County State’s Attorney David Fenster’s decision on whether to prosecute the suspect in an Aug. 13 accidental shooting in Bridport is not likely to happen for several days as Vermont State Police continue their investigation into the case.

Peter Damone, 76, was listed in “guarded” condition in an induced coma at the Fletcher Allen Health Care intensive care unit on Tuesday after being hit in the face by a .45-caliber bullet while in his backyard at a little after 8 p.m. last Friday, his wife Dorothy Damone reported.
