Recount’s fine, but keep it rollin’
With gubernatorial candidate Peter Shumlin picking up five votes in the unofficial vote canvassing by the Secretary of State’s office as of late Friday afternoon, he now leads Doug Racine in the Democratic primary race by 197 votes. Still, it is a thin margin and by no means a done deal considering the potential for errors.
ALBANY, N.Y. — Garland “Chico” Martin, a Bristol Planning Commission member and Bristol Elementary School director, is recovering from injuries he sustained in a serious, one-vehicle crash near Comstock, N.Y., on Aug. 20.

The second thing I noticed about the river was the incredible color of the stones beneath my feet. Though the dominant hues were various — dark and light shades of lavender, violet and magenta — there were also hues of green, blue, gray, yellow, red and brown. Most of the stones were solid colors, ranging in size from a pea or marble to the palm of my hand to a men’s size 15 workboot. But there were striped, mottled and speckled rocks as well.
CORRECTION: Sen. Peter Shumlin, D-Putney, received 41 votes in Ripton for the Aug. 24 Democrat primary for governor, not the mere four tallies reported in the Thursday, Aug. 26, edition of the Addison Independent. This means that Shumlin notched a total of 1,395 votes in Addison County, not the 1,356 previously reported. This total of 1,395 means that Shumlin was in fact the top vote-getter in the county, narrowly eclipsing Hartland Democrat Matt Dunne’s 1,372 tallies.
