By Nola Kevra



I send my heartfelt gratitude to all those who gathered at the Ripton Church on Christmas eve for the Christmas Eve service.

Having all of you there made for a very wonderful evening of community joy and peace. Thank you.

As we all joined in closing the evening with “Let There Be Peace on Earth,” I was overcome with the realization that we can do it — if we work with one another. We can have that sacred idea — which we call Peace — become a reality.

By Addison Independent



BURLINGTON — The Vermont Public Service Board (PSB) this week issued a Certificate of Public good to the New England Clean Power Link, a high power line that would transmit 1,000 megawatts of wind and hydro power from the Canadian border to a transfer station at Ludlow.

Ninety-eight miles would be buried under Lake Champlain, including a stretch running near Ferrisburgh and Panton and then hugging the shorelines of Addison, Bridport, Shoreham and Orwell. The Clean Power Link would veer onto land south of Addison County, in Benson.
