BURLINGTON — The sense came early in the Division I final Tuesday that it could be a long night for the No. 2 Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team.

Top-seeded Essex won the opening faceoff at the University of Vermont’s Gutterson Arena and attacked immediately. Senior Hornet forward Melanie Theriault broke in almost unhindered on Tiger sophomore goalie Rowan Hendy. Hendy held her ground, and Theriault’s forehand whistled wide left.

Editorial: Voters' message on school budgets — Keep moving forward

Posted on March 4, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



School budgets around the state, for the most part, fared better this year than last when 34 budgets were defeated in town meeting balloting. Why the difference? Largely because the average school budget increase was held to just under 3 percent, compared to much higher increases in 2014.

But there is also the perception that the Legislature is responding to the changing landscape caused by the steep decline in the number of students in Vermont (it’s down 21,000 in the past two decades), the low teacher-pupil ratios and the consequent high per-pupil cost.
