Opinion: Bucket lists tell volumes

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Laurie Borden



Haze, Praise and Field Days With all the divisiveness, conflict, hatred and confusion in our world today, it was refreshing to spend some time at Addison County Field Days. This event is vibrant, poignant, aromatic and enlightening. It might not be your cup of tea, but it is a slice of Vermont (served with a maple creemee) that gives us an opportunity to feel the heart and soul of this community. Whether you go for the tractor pulls, the animals, the food, the rides or just to people watch, you are bound to come away with a lesson, a love or a laugh.

Opinion: Delays plague rail bridges project

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Ian Ross



The town made its voice heard as to what it wants to see replacing the current bridges. Great! Then we see three or four delays in start of construction over the span of two years, before the town even gets decent details as to the actual size and scope of the project. I am just as angry as anyone in town over that deception. I think it’s good that all parties have stepped back to re-evaluate the situation. However, given my previous experience, I want to urge the municipal, state and federal parties involved to not drag their feet any further in this process.

Dear Sir/ Madame,

In late July I was on a cycling holiday and passed through the Addison area. A couple and a man helped me, a complete stranger, and I wish to acknowledge their kindnesses.

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Addison Independent



VERGENNES — Vergennes police on Aug. 17 cited a soon-to-be-dismissed Northlands Job Corps student for starting the fire that destroyed an empty Macdonough Drive horse barn.

Police said they cited a 16-year-old juvenile from Florida who had been terminated from Northlands for “setting fires,” and not for arson. Police said the juvenile apparently did not intend to destroy the building on the south side of the city street, but acknowledged starting the fire that then got out of control.

In other incidents between Aug. 15 and 21, Vergennes police:
