Reading 'goes to the dogs' at Ilsley

By Kathryn Flagg

MIDDLEBURY — Ilsley Library’s newest star is a scene-stealer: At 120 pounds with sleek black hair and soulful brown eyes, the reading assistant draws a crowd the moment she steps into a room.

That this budding literacy advocate just happens to be a dog doesn’t particularly worry Judah Hamer, the youth services librarian at the Middlebury library. Shoopie the Newfoundland, a therapy dog now making weekly appearances at the library to read with children, is just the thing to make reading out loud exciting for some kids, Hamer explained.

MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union’s seven elementary school boards have all been preparing 2010-2011 spending plans reflecting less than a 2 percent bump in spending, but education property taxes are still pegged to escalate at a much higher rate — including by more than 19 percent in Weybridge.

Mt. Abe holds line on budget

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board of directors on Tuesday agreed to send a $13,233,629 spending plan for the 2010-2011 school year to voters in the five towns in the Addison Northeast Supervisory Union on Town Meeting Day.

Total spending in the proposed budget is down 1.72 percent from the current year’s numbers, and matches this year’s educational spending dollar-for-dollar. Declining student enrollment, however, means the level-funded budget would still reflect a roughly 6 percent increase in per pupil spending.

Ferrisburgh school bond driving up tax rate, budget

Posted on January 21, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh Central School board has adopted a $3.05 million spending proposal for the upcoming school year that includes a major increase, one that is being driven by the first year of payments on last summer’s $1.5 million school upgrade project.

In all, the increase is about $190,400, or 6.66 percent, over current spending.

Of that, $130,000 will go toward making bond payments. That amount alone would boost FCS spending by 4.55 percent, if voters approve the board’s proposal on Town Meeting Day.

Some lawmakers wary of Douglas spending cuts

Posted on January 21, 2010 |
By Dave Gram



MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Gov. Jim Douglas on Tuesday laid out an austere budget for the next fiscal year, saying the state must close a $150 million money gap by taking such steps as: more than quadrupling deductibles paid by some public healthcare beneficiaries, trimming payments to human services providers, and reducing subsidies to help middle-income Vermonters pay school property taxes.

By Kathryn Flagg



BRIDPORT — When Annette Franklin heard about last week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti, her first thoughts flew to the orphanage in the hills above Petionville and the little girl, just 2 years old, she held in her arms last summer.

The girl’s name is Gedeleine, and the 2-year-old is one of 160 orphans at God’s Littlest Angels, an independent, nondenominational orphanage in poverty-stricken Haiti. Since December of 2008, Annette and Tim Franklin, and their four children, have been looking forward to welcoming the child into their Bridport home.

Posted on January 21, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MONTPELIER — The victim in a 2007 voyeurism case at Middlebury College urged the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to strengthen state laws in cases where someone records images of a person’s private areas or sexual conduct without having first secured that person’s permission.

At issue is bill S.218, sponsored by state Sen. Claire Ayer, D-Weybridge, on behalf of a Middlebury College graduate of the class of 2007.
