County farms yield abundant harvest

Posted on November 15, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



ADDISON COUNTY — Crop yields were looking good this year for Addison County farmers — by some accounts, better than they have been in many years.

Craig Miner, county Farm Service Agency executive, said that from what he saw, nearly the entire growing season spelled good luck for local farmers.

“It was an excellent season — probably one of the best in recent years,” he said.

Ben Gleason, of Gleason’s Grains in Bridport, agreed. He said the combination of just enough rain and more warmth than last summer meant that his crops did well.

In the next 12 months, Fass, 58, plans to complete a 60-minute DVD that will not only express what the Bixby Library has meant to the five communities it has served since 1912, but also emphasize the central role the Vergennes institution can continue to play in the decades to come.

Middlebury OKs study of fire station space needs

Posted on November 15, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard last Tuesday unanimously OK’d a $9,720 contract with Bread Loaf Corp. to help the fire department size up its space needs and determine whether its best option is to plan for on-site expansion or a new headquarters.
The Middlebury Volunteer Fire Department maintains two stations — a primary facility on Seymour Street and a branch station in East Middlebury. The Seymour Street station can barely contain current fire apparatus and will be unable to accommodate the next generation of vehicles.

By Andrea Suozzo



LEICESTER — The end is in sight for one of Leicester Central School’s main infrastructure woes.

Last spring, the school received a $50,000 energy efficiency and conservation block grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the economic stimulus law) to fund the installation of a new, energy-efficient boiler and water heater in the school. Leicester Central has put the installation contract out to bid, with the hope of doing the new installations in the spring.

Stockman’s dire prediction

Posted on November 15, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



David Stockman, the boy-wonder budget director in the first Reagan administration and the brains behind the supply-side economics in 1981, is making waves within the Republican Party by adamantly proclaiming that the Bush tax cuts should not be extended — not for the rich and not for the middle class.
