Special Series: New Orleans Part I -Personal notebook by Addy Indy reporter Harriette Brainard; New Orleans: City of Soul.

Harriette Brainard, a reporter for the Addison Independent, recently visited New Orleans and begins a three-part series on the status of the city and its recovery with this personal commentary. The next installment will be Monday, June 5, followed by reports next Thursday, June 8. The reporter is a former resident of New Orleans and has attended Jazz Fest, an annual spring music festival, for the past 17 years.

“The dead don’t need flood insurance to buy a new house, and for that you almost have to envy them. Taking the pulse of the town and its citizenry, the driver told me: “I’ve never seen or felt anything like this. I’ll tell you, brother: I’m scared. I’m real scared.�

Special Series: New Orleans Part II

Editor’s note: This is the second in a three-part series on New Orleans and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

By HARRIETTE BRAINARD

“This place has no name, and all of us know it. The city is exposed: flesh and blood, muscle and bone. New Orleans is a fresh wound, sliced open by the shrapnel of a storm.”

So notes CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper in his upcoming book on the wreckage left last August in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina called “Dispatches from the Edge.” On the scene for weeks, Cooper recalls the immediacy of the need just to survive and of the serious wound inflicted by the storm.

Habitat also recently bought a quarter-acre lot, for $40,000, within the Otter View Park project off Weybridge Street in Middlebury.

Mt. Abe considers biometric system

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRISTOL — As Mount Abraham Union High School considers upgrading the aging cash register system for its school lunch program, a biometric identification system is one option being considered.

Advocates say the finger-scanning system would make getting school lunch quicker and easier for students but downplayed any concerns around student privacy.

According to Nancy Curtis, MAUHS director of food service, the cash registers now used were purchased in 1987. “We are a big school, we really should have a computerized point-of-sale system,” she said.

Senior housing to undergo Act 250

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — One proposed Middlebury retirement community is about to undergo Act 250 review and another is well into that process, which could soon culminate in almost 240 new units of senior housing being erected in Addison County’s shire town.

Act 250 is a state environmental review process through which development proposals must satisfy 10 separate criteria. Those criteria include potential impacts on municipal services, traffic, water supply and area wildlife. Both the proposed Eastview at Middlebury project and the Lodge at Otter Creek have already received conditional approval from the local planning commission.

New Haven flip flops on tradition

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

NEW HAVEN — A battle over what some believe could fundamentally change a Vermont tradition — the annual town meeting — raged in New Haven last week as citizens there voted for the third time in a little more than a year on how they will consider future spending questions.

At a special town meeting on May 25, New Haven voted to continue voting on the general fund budget, the road budget and all other monetary items by Australian ballot. That result, by a tally of 43-58 paper ballots, overturned an article approved on Town Meeting Day in March that reinstituted the tradition of a voice vote for budget issues.

No strings

By HARRIETTE BRAINARD

SALISBURY — The children of Salisbury Community School have had a special treat this May with the month-long residency of the No Strings Marionette Company.

The husband-and-wife team of Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson have spent about 10 days during the month of May bringing stories to life by not only performing puppet shows for the students, but also by helping children from kindergarten through the sixth grade create their own puppets and performances.

The artist-in-residency program will culminate on Friday when the students stage a series of puppet shows at the school beginning at 6:30 p.m.
