ADDISON COUNTY — Crop yields were looking good this year for Addison County farmers — by some accounts, better than they have been in many years.
Craig Miner, county Farm Service Agency executive, said that from what he saw, nearly the entire growing season spelled good luck for local farmers.
“It was an excellent season — probably one of the best in recent years,” he said.
Ben Gleason, of Gleason’s Grains in Bridport, agreed. He said the combination of just enough rain and more warmth than last summer meant that his crops did well.
VERGENNES — Charlotte filmmaker Philip Fass has accepted and begun what he calls an exciting challenge from the Bixby Free Memorial Library Board of Trustees.
In the next 12 months, Fass, 58, plans to complete a 60-minute DVD that will not only express what the Bixby Library has meant to the five communities it has served since 1912, but also emphasize the central role the Vergennes institution can continue to play in the decades to come.
