Vermont now has five capable candidates who have announced their intentions to run for governor: Sue Minter, Shap Smith and Matt Dunne for the Democratic Party’s nomination, and Bruce Lisman and Phil Scott for the Republican Party. As well as being well-rounded, each candidate has their own particular skill set or background that could tip the scales in their favor.
Addison County is a wonderful place to live and raise children. However, some families do not always have the resources and support they need, and children end up in the state’s custody for a variety of reasons.
Last Sunday afternoon we were out sailing on Lake Champlain. We got a little too close to a shallow area south of Fields Bay and before completing a tack (away from shore), we slowly hit the muddy bottom. We were in no danger but were stuck.
My crew and I set out to extract ourselves by using our dinghy and an anchor to “kedge” off, but before long a powerboat with two persons aboard offered their assistance. In no time they pulled us off into deeper water.
The Addison Four Corners store is offering a “ sunflower trade” day on Saturday, Sept. 19. Bring in four sunflowers in trade for a breakfast sandwich.
For each sunflower we receive we will donate $2 to the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief Fund. Please help us to help others that are being persecuted for their choice of faith. Christianity is being forced to retreat and give ground to terrorists, while our government doesn’t make a peep about it. Is that because of the election campaigns?
I have been following with great interest the recent series of articles covering the new Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) as it relates to the Lake Champlain cleanup effort. I am disappointed that none of the articles thus far have made any mention of the important role that organic agriculture has to play in this critical situation.
BRISTOL — Three Addison Northeast Supervisory Union schools have become the first in the county to offer three meals a day to their students, a service that a prominent anti-hunger organization would like to see extended to every public school in the state.
BRISTOL — A federal mediator has recommended that the superintendent of the Bristol-area schools and the teachers in those schools take part in training to warm up the cool relationship between the parties.
The Addison Northeast Supervisory Union Executive Committee and the Addison Northeast Education Association teachers union (ANEDA) posted a joint statement and the recommendations of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services (FMCS) mediator on the ANeSU website this past Thursday.
