Homeless facing wage shortfall: Most work, but high cost of shelter, child care challenging

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — It’s easy to assume the typical homeless person is unemployed and therefore unable to afford a roof and four walls.

The reality in Addison County is far different.

Almost all the temporary inhabitants of the John Graham Emergency shelter in Vergennes are employed, but are simply not earning enough to land one of the few vacant apartments in our area, according to local advocates.

ADDISON COUNTY — Area deer hunters enjoyed the second-best rifle deer season since 2005, bringing 554 bucks to Addison County weigh stations during the 16-day season that ran Nov. 11 to 26.

That total of deer taken came just 19 short of 2016’s total of 573, the highest since Vermont wildlife officials in 2005 banned the taking of spikehorn bucks during November’s rifle season, the most popular of the state’s deer hunting seasons.

SHOREHAM — Two decades ago, Ray Gauthier and his family were in the market for a Christmas tree. They had plenty of options, but elected to visit the Red Sled Christmas Tree Farm on Route 74 West in Shoreham.

“My in-laws lived in Shoreham, right next to the Shoreham Inn,” Gauthier recalled. “We decided to try (Red Sled) out.”

VERGENNES — At just three weeks old, tiny Hunter holds the distinction of being the youngest resident of the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes.

He doesn’t realize he and his 28-year-old mom, Sammie, don’t have a home of their own.

But Sammie plans to change all that, and she’s getting a big lift from John Graham Housing & Services (JGHS), the nonprofit that runs the Vergennes shelter and five multi-unit apartment buildings in the county.

McKibben's new fable a witty tour de force on the allure of resistance

n McKibben, Bill by Nancie Battaglia-HighRes SAVE TO ONLINE MORGUE.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Using humor and wit in his debut novel, “Radio Free Vermont,” environmentalist and Ripton resident Bill McKibben pens a rollicking tale of resistance and political activism through the antics of a handful of Vermont characters whose capers start small then snowball into a full-blown movement to secede from the union — not focused on clever hijinks, but based on “facts, data, ideas.”

Fixed costs affecting Middlebury town budget

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard is beginning its review of a draft fiscal year 2019 municipal budget that, if left unchanged, would add 2.16 cents to the current local tax rate of 98.2 cents.

But it’s a spending plan that could look different when it’s put before Middlebury voters on Town Meeting Day in March, as selectboard members could recommend both subtractions and additions before agreeing to a final budget proposal by Jan. 23, when it is expected to be finalized.
