Tracking dogs help hunters find injured prey

Posted on October 17, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department recently released a list of certified leashed tracking dog owners who will help locate deer, bear or moose that have been shot during hunting season but not yet recovered. The leashed tracking dog owners must pass an extensive exam administered by Fish & Wildlife in order to be certified and licensed to provide their services.

This list, which may be updated during hunting seasons, is available on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website (www.vtfishandwildlife.com).

Opinion: Former Transportation official touts Minter's Irene efforts

Posted on October 17, 2016 |
By Brian Searles



This week’s writer is Brian Searles, who served as transportation secretary in two different administrations and retired from the position in 2014.

I recently read a press release from the Vermont Republican Party that attempts to cast a shadow over the role gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter played in the response to Tropical Storm Irene. The release titled, “Vermont Media Begins to Lift The Curtain on Minter’s Irene Claims,” includes quotes from a party official and from an editorial that ran in the Caledonian Record newspaper.

Opinion: Some lawmakers avoid firearms, carbon tax issues

Posted on October 17, 2016 |
By Ivan St. George



I recently contacted all Addison 3 (Vergennes area) House candidates as well as Addison County Senatorial candidates to ask them whether or not they would support the proposed carbon tax, which would add 88¢ to every gallon of gasoline, $1.02 to heating oil, etc. I also asked for their positions regarding expanded background checks for gun purchases, a policy which has also received considerable attention for several years, and especially recently as the gubernatorial candidate of the Democrat party has made it her number one policy priority issue if elected.

Guest editorial: Is the U.S. ripe for revolution?

Posted on October 17, 2016 |
By Haviland Smith



It’s difficult to look at our ongoing national political contest and not think that our system is in the unprecedented process of being turned upside down.

One of our major parties has been taken over by a leader and a very large group of dissidents who are pushing it in directions never before seen.

Racism, misogyny, sexism, immigration, civil rights and the endorsement of violence, are only among the most prominent areas that have seen changes in attitude during this election cycle.

Farm worker jailed by ICE Alcudia_6947.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Recent arrests of dairy farmworkers by federal authorities has led to accusations that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is targeting migrant laborers who are leaders in the farmworker movement for detention. ICE maintains that it is simply carrying out federal law.

Addison County farmworker Miguel Alcudia, 23, remains in ICE custody in the Strafford County House of Corrections in Dover, N.H., and is awaiting a bail hearing, following his Sept. 22 arrest in Vergennes.

Beth Marr AlmostHome9657.jpg

OK, so Beth Marr might not be a chef by training, but she’s been in the food and service industry for over 25 years. Plus she’s originally from Louisiana so she’s got some of that southern hospitality in her blood. But working in food service can test even the best of the best.
