Birch syrup helps to fill the maple void

IMG_9352.jpg

LEICESTER — It was one of very few “Maple Open House” signs seen over the annual March weekend during which Vermont sugarhouses invite in the general public, but the Sweet Success Sugar Shack is looking in a new direction.

A sudden warm-up in temperatures in late March brought a quick and then painful end to the annual maple sap run this year, leaving area sugarmakers with below-average sap supplies.

Editorial: The real populist message is to follow PSB's lead

Posted on April 5, 2012 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The brouhaha over who gets how much of $21 million from the potential merger of the state’s two largest utilities has devolved into a spat over splitting the spoils, rather than a conversation about what’s best for the state.

Clippings: Presidential visit exciting, dismaying

Posted on April 5, 2012 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



Prior to March 30, the closest I had been as a journalist to anything presidential was Howard Dean’s campaign kickoff in Burlington in June 2003.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to cover the first visit to Vermont by a sitting president in 17 years.

Last week, 20 of my fellow Addison Independent employees and I each threw $2 into an office pool. While one ticket offered only a 1-in-75-million chance of winning, we had 42.

It was all we could do not to clean out our desks Friday afternoon.

Community Forum: Test scores don't tell full story

Posted on April 5, 2012 |
By Lonny Edwards



A recent New York Times article by Annie Lowry was titled “Big Study Links Good Teachers to Lasting Gain.” The article was about how teachers who raise students test scores in elementary and middle school have a lasting impact on those students’ lives in the form of raising their income, increasing their likelihood of attending college and lowering teen pregnancy rates.
