FERRISBURGH — An opponent of Basin Harbor Club’s 150-kilowatt solar array last week won a Vermont Supreme Court decision against the Public Service Board.
However, the decision addressed procedure, not the issues at the heart of the case, such as the array’s impact on the lakefront neighborhood.
MIDDLEBURY — The Charter House Coalition will double its capacity to serve homeless families this winter at its Middlebury headquarters, this in response to an increased demand for emergency accommodations.
The Charter House Coalition is a nonprofit dedicated to providing housing and food to those in need in Addison County. During the course of last winter, the coalition provided a temporary home to 55 different individuals and six families at the Charter House at 27 North Pleasant St. in Middlebury.
NEW HAVEN — Municipal planners looking for input from residents on an update to the New Haven Town Plan executed a kind of civic “speed dating” this past Saturday.
BRISTOL — The Addison Northeast Supervisory Union is now just a few steps and mere days away from ending David Adams’s tenure as its superintendent.
On Tuesday evening, the ANeSU Executive Committee voted unanimously to approve the employment separation agreement between the Bristol-area school district and Adams that calls for paying him more than $80,000 in salary, severance and other compensation.
The committee also authorized Chair Dawn Griswold to “execute the agreement and related documents to implement the agreement.”
KILLINGTON — Rachel Corvington, 34, was on her way to the Spartan World Championship in Lake Tahoe in August when she heard about the Spartan Fittest Bride Challenge. First prize (a fully-catered wedding at Spartan founder Joe De Sena’s Riverside Farm) had a value of approximately $50,000.
That’s over three times what first place earned in cash and prizes ($15,000) at the Spartan World Championships.
Corvington, an elite racer who finished in the top 35 at the Worlds, thought she’d have a good shot at winning the race.
ADDISON COUNTY — There is no shortage of Halloween activities going on in Addison County in the next week or so. From “trunk-or-treat” gatherings costume parades to story times, area children and their families will find something fun (or spooky) to do.
Coming up on Saturday, Oct. 24, the Vergennes Eagles will host a children’s Halloween party from 1-3 p.m. Children ages 1-10 are invited to come in costume to this free event, which includes a parade, games, crafts, goodie bags and temporary tattoos. Prizes will be handed out.
SHELDON — Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Lisman kicked off his campaign in the heart of dairy country Monday, portraying a bleak picture of a Vermont in need of an overhaul from a Montpelier outsider.
BRISTOL — The host Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ soccer team used tough defense and opportunistic scoring on Tuesday to turn back hard-working Vergennes, 3-0, in a first-round Division II playoff game.
The defending D-II champion and No. 5 seed Eagles improved to 9-6 with their seventh straight win. They will face a familiar foe on the road in a Friday quarterfinal at 3 p.m.: No. 4 Harwood, the team the Eagles defeated in the 2014 final, 1-0.
