Views on migrant workers discussed

February 15, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Migrant workers in Addison County remain scared to leave the farms on which they work lest they be stopped and deported for a minor infraction in what has become the strictest state in the Northeast for rounding up illegal aliens, local advocates said on Tuesday.

A panel of local educators, farmers, Mexican government officials and a former U.S. Border Patrol agent shared these and other views on the issue of migrant farm workers at a special forum hosted on Tuesday by the Middlebury Congregational Church.

The standing-room-only crowd of more than 100 featured farmers, human services providers, lawyers and students, but was largely devoid of the people who were the focus of the gathering — migrant workers, who clearly wanted to avoid scrutiny in order to keep their jobs.

Proposed ANwSU school budget holds steady

February 15, 2007

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — Residents in the Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns of Addison, Ferrisburgh and Panton are looking at increases of only one or two cents on their school tax rates if they approve school budgets as proposed, according to ANwSU estimates.

Meanwhile, Waltham residents may see a five-cent drop in their school taxes, but all bets are off in Vergennes: The city is just completing a reappraisal of all of its properties, making it virtually impossible to guess where its school tax rate will end up.

In all, ANwSU officials are happy to pass on some good news, for which they credit accurate property assessments as well as spending increases they believe are responsible.

Biomass pellet plant discussed for industrial park

February 15, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Some local entrepreneurs, college officials and economic development leaders are talking about the possibility of establishing a new plant that would produce biomass pellets and transform them into steam energy to generate heat and electricity for several businesses in Middlebury’s industrial park.

Plans are still very conceptual at this point, as prospective players in the project are still crunching numbers to see if a biomass pellet/cogeneration facility would be economically and logistically viable for Middlebury. But those involved in the planning are very upbeat.

“This is very promising,” said Morgan Wolaver, owner of Otter Creek Brewing, one of the potential participants. “It’s not completely confirmed, but I think there is a more than 50-percent certainty it could happen.”
