Patchwork: Learn ways to minimize garden allergies

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By Leonard Perry

Generally pollen from plants, but also mold, dust and even scents, can cause allergic reactions in some people. If you’re one of these, you don’t have to give up gardening during part of the season, or have to convert your landscape into silk flowers, gravel beds and garden gnomes or plastic flamingos. Changing some gardening practices, or choice of plants, may be all that’s needed to lessen the symptoms.

Editorial: A light in the darkness

On Tuesday, Gov. Peter Shumlin gave a hug to Starksboro resident Kathy Duclos after a staged signing of a bill that seeks to revamp how the state conducts its search and rescue operations. The bill was sparked by the death of 19-year-old Levi Duclos, a Middlebury resident, who died of hypothermia three miles from the trailhead of a popular hiking area in Ripton. While his family searched into the night for the missing hiker, state police took the call at approximately 8 p.m. that winter night, but failed to send out a search party until the next morning.

Clippings: Best effort can at times fall short

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By John Flowers



We work hard at this twice-weekly to keep our readers informed about goings-on in Addison County. That means talking to people face-to-face or by phone, or hearing from them at meetings.

But there are times we can’t get to a meeting, so we have to follow up by phone with the people who are affected and the sources we have cultivated over the years.

It’s a formula that usually works. Sometimes it doesn’t.

Around the Bend: Growing cranky in the garden

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By Jessie Raymond



Every spring, in anticipation of my vegetable garden, I forget an important point: Gardening is neither easy nor particularly enjoyable.

Don’t believe those dreamers who insist that growing vegetables is a spiritually transforming experience. Sure, we all have those brief moments of awe when a bean seedling first breaks through the concrete crust of Addison County clay. And who doesn’t swoon over the taste of a juicy, just-picked tomato, still warm from the afternoon sun?

Whatever. Most of the time, gardening is the pits.

Past year was not just wins and losses

The local high school sports year began the same way it always does in August, with students sweating on steamy fields.

On Saturday, it ended the way athletes, parents and fans dream about: Vergennes pitcher Devin Hayes struck out the final Missisquoi batter in the Division II final and raised his arms in triumph. The stands erupted in cheers, and his teammates raced to the mound and buried him in a mound of blue and gray uniforms.

Sen. Giard won't seek another term

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By John Flowers



BRIDPORT — Sen. Harold Giard, D-Bridport, who has represented Addison County and Brandon in the state senate for the past eight years, will not seek a fifth consecutive term in the state’s highest chamber this November.

Giard confirmed this news during an interview with the Addison Independent late Wednesday afternoon. He said his decision was made out of respect for Vermont’s citizen Legislature and out of a desire to allow someone else to serve in a role he has found so fulfilling during the past eight years.
