When New Haven native Wes Butler graduated in 2010 from Paul Smith’s College, he had no intention of becoming a game warden. He earned a bachelor’s degree in fish and wildlife science in order to become a wildlife biologist. He concentrated on the wildlife half rather than the fisheries half for fear that a career in fisheries might spoil his lifelong passion for angling. But the most important thing was to be on the biology side of management, and not on the law enforcement side.
MIDDLEBURY — The Lake Shoreland Protection Commission will conduct a public meeting on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 6-8 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Middlebury. The Vermont General Assembly established the Lake Shoreland Protection Commission earlier this year in order to:
• Provide information to the public regarding the current health of waters of the State, including the results of the 2012 Agency of Natural Resources’ State Water Quality Remediation, Implementation, and Funding Report.
The following is the full text of a speech given by Alex Wolff at the Addison County Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting Sept. 12.
Addison County and the New Endurance Sports Boom
We live in an old farmhouse in Cornwall. Our front yard faces a road where a long hill flattens out obligingly beneath the canopy of a large pig-nut tree.
MIDDLEBURY — After a failed attempt this past Tuesday in Addison Superior Court’s criminal division to win his pre-trial freedom, the Addison resident suspected of committing many burglaries in Addison County and neighboring counties will try again on Sept. 25.
At 9 a.m. on that Wednesday in the Mahady Courthouse, Raymond Ritchie, 37, will attend a “weight of the evidence” hearing that could, in theory, free him until he is tried on burglary, unlawful trespass and marijuana cultivation charges.
MIDDLEBURY — State and federal authorities have found an additional $1 million to help fund a new concrete tunnel to replace the Main Street and Merchants Row railroad underpasses, which now leaves the town just $500,000 short of covering expenses for its preferred project option.
MIDDLEBURY — A memorial on the Middlebury College campus to those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks was vandalized this past Wednesday, shocking many on campus.
A leader of a group that pulled up 2,977 American flags placed in the lawn between Mead Chapel and the Davis Family Library told the Addison Independent in an exclusive interview that she had no regrets for her actions, saying she found the display offensive to Native Americans.
MIDDLEBURY — Saying someone’s business is “soaring” can fall into the category of a trite embellishment.
But it’s a term that can legitimately be used about Green Mountain Avionics (GMA), a budding new enterprise that helps aircraft soar reliably through the skies.
