New energy bill on the horizon in Montpelier

July 19, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MONTPELIER — Vermont House and Senate leaders this week vowed to hit the ground running in January with a new energy bill that could be even more comprehensive than the one vetoed by Gov. James Douglas.

The Vermont House on July 11 narrowly sustained Douglas’s veto of H.520, an energy bill that would have, among other things:

• Expanded the state’s electric efficiency utility (Efficiency Vermont) to an “all fuels” utility. Efficiency Vermont is currently limited to helping Vermonters improve their homes and businesses in ways to save on electricity, not on fossil fuels.

H.520 called for the Efficiency Vermont’s expanded services to be paid through a four-year tax on Vermont Yankee that would’ve raised roughly $25 million. Douglas was among those who did not support the Vermont Yankee tax, figuring that it would simply be passed on to consumers.

• Encouraged development of more renewable energy projects on Vermont farms.

Bristol tax rate

July 19, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

BRISTOL — For most Bristol property owners, tax bills that will be mailed next month will contain a pleasant surprise: tax rates will go down by more than 4 percent for homeowners, and up by less than 2 percent for non-residential properties.

An average homeowner who didn’t make any big changes to his or her property in the past year can expect to see a smaller tax bill, town clerk Theresa Kirby said.

The good news on tax rates was possible partly because Bristol’s grand list has increased, Kirby said. The municipal grand list has increased by 2.1 percent since last year, from $2,620,374 to $2,675,407, because of new construction or the change in use of properties. The police district grand list increased by 1.52 percent, from $1,075,362.

The biggest reason for the drop, though, was a drop in the state education tax rate for homesteads. The education tax rate for homesteads dropped by 7.19 percent and, for non-residential properties, increased by only 1.19 percent.

Gallery explores the abstract

July 19, 2007 

By MEGAN JAMES
MIDDLEBURY — In a near silent gallery at the Middlebury College Museum of Art, Rebecca Purdum took a step closer to see the intricate overlay of colors in paintings she completed recently. She knows a painting is good, she said, when it surprises her, when she no longer thinks of herself as the one who created it.

The three abstract oil paintings, which went up late last month, hang one to a wall — two horizontal diptychs each stretching more than 10 feet across and one massive vertical piece — filling the space between with a kind of visual noise. All three are made up of what the artist calls “non-colors,” layers of blues, grays and browns, which come together to create something akin to water.
