Posted on June 30, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



VERGENNES — After last week receiving another report of an attempted phone scam, Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel is urging area residents never to send money or reveal personal information to callers claiming to represent a contest or the Internal Revenue Service. 

Instead, Merkel said, residents who receive calls like the one a city resident reported on June 22 should call police. In that instance, a resident was contacted and told she had won $5,000, but had to mail $2,000 to the Philippines to cover taxes before she could receive her winnings.

By Matt Dickerson

It began with a trip to a river I have been fishing since I was 13 years old: the Little Androscoggin.

My school career began with kindergarten in the little Maine village of Bryant Pond, whose two thriving lumber mills helped support a population of 1,000, spread out over three villages in the town of Woodstock.

Gloria Warden is town clerk of Ferrisburgh. She and her husband, Jim Warden, have lived in the town since 1987. Reporter Sam Hartley chatted with her recently in the historic Grange Hall on Route 7 that now serves as the Ferrisburgh town offices.

Q: When did you become town clerk?

A: In 2014 the (former) town clerk retired. I didn’t know about it until it was too late for (nominating) petitions (to run for the office). I was approached by some residents asking me to run as a write-in, and I did. 

Q: Could you explain what a petition is?

By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



SOUTH BURLINGTON — Vermont Gas last week announced that a 41-mile natural gas pipeline extension through Addison County will cost $12 million, or 7.8 percent, more than anticipated. The latest estimate pegs the total cost at $165.6 million.

It’s the fourth time Vermont Gas has upped the price tag. When the company, a subsidiary of Montreal-based Gaz Metro, unveiled its pipeline plans in 2011 it told state regulators that the cost of the project would be $87 million.
