Apple crop for 2007 looks to be sweet

APPLE PICKER WINSTON Menzie from Jamaica works in the top of a tree full of Cortlands at Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall Tuesday afternoon. A June hailstorm impacted some of the county’s apple orchards, but most orchards are anticipating a bountiful harvest this fall.

ADDISON COUNTY — Many area orchardists this week reported a decent-sized, flavorful crop of apples ripening for wholesalers and pick-your-own enthusiasts, though the fallout of a June hail storm is forcing at least one major grower to convert all of his fruit into cider.

“We’re cautiously optimistic we will have a good season,” said Andrea Ochs of Orwell-based Crescent Orchards. “We’ve had some good pollination and beautiful weather.”

Building of duplicate Grange expected to begin Oct. 8

September 20, 2007

By ANDY KIRKALDY

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen on Tuesday voted to sign a $2.8 million contract with Middlebury’s Breadloaf Corp. for a historically accurate rebuilt Grange Hall with a one-story addition that will serve as a town office building and a community meeting center.

The vote, taken after weeks of debate in the town over whether to proceed with the project or to consider other options, and after a Tuesday closed-door discussion among selectmen, was 3-2.

Chairwoman Loretta Lawrence, Larry Simino and Sally Torrey voted to authorized Lawrence to sign the deal with Breadloaf on Ferrisburgh’s behalf, and Jim Warden and John DeVos voted no.

Work is now expected to begin on Oct. 8 on a Route 7 building that will include town offices at its ground level, plus an entry lobby with a small kitchen area and a meeting room to be shared by the town and the Grange. Under that level will run a full basement, and over it will be a larger meeting room with a stage that will be overlooked by a balcony.

Closure of Hancock plant leaves 35 jobless

September 20, 2007

By ANDY KIRKALDY

HANCOCK — Vermont Plywood LLC, Hancock’s largest employer, closed its doors on Sept. 6 after a little more than three years under new ownership, putting 35 employees out of work. 

Vermont Plywood CEO Dan Davis bought the 120,000-square-foot plant on 50 acres on May 21, 2004, paying Chesapeake Hardwood Products $775,000 for the Route 100 facility that was formerly operated by Weyerhaeuser Co. Vermont Plywood made plywood for the housing industry, notably paneling, cabinetry and furniture.

That deal was supported by a $730,000 Community Development Block Grant and a $640,000 Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) loan. But Davis said broken promises by Chesapeake caused immediate problems, and a downturn in the housing industry contributed to the decision by Vermont Plywood’s financial backers to pull the plug earlier this month.
