There are numerous reasons to oppose the granting of a permit by the Public Service Board to Vermont Gas Systems Inc. in its attempt to build a gas pipeline to International Paper in Ticonderoga, N.Y. One of the reasons many of the residents of Cornwall have coalesced in opposition is to try to protect the sanctity of private property. This should be of concern to all Vermonters.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The finest season in the history of the Middlebury College women’s soccer program came to an end on Friday afternoon, when the Panthers lost to top-ranked Trinity University, 2-1, in an NCAA Division III semifinal played in Trinity’s home town of San Antonio.
VERGENNES — Addison Northwest Supervisory Union voters on Tuesday will decide the fate of a $2.88 million bond request from Vergennes Union High School board to fund work, the major elements of which would be a new kitchen and cafeteria and upgrades to the school auditorium that would return it to full use.
MIDDLEBURY — The UD-3 school board on Tuesday evening unanimously agreed to keep a district-owned Creek Road parcel in play for potentially hosting a new town recreation center.
The panel came to that decision after a brief discussion about the town of Middlebury’s recreation center plan and how such a facility might benefit UD-3, which includes Middlebury Union middle and high schools.
FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents on Tuesday will be asked not only to weigh in on a proposed $2.88 million Vergennes Union High School bond (see story, Page 1A), but also to approve an $850,000 bond to pay for most of a proposed $1.05 million, 5,940-square-foot, six-bay Ferrisburgh highway department garage.
That new highway facility, modeled after Bridport’s town garage, would be built on the same lot as the current highway garage, across Little Chicago Road from Ferrisburgh Central School.
VERGENNES — Vergennes residents on Tuesday will not only weigh in on a $2.88 million Vergennes Union High School bond proposal, but also face a ballot item that will ask if they support the Vergennes City Council’s endorsement of the proposed Vermont Gas Systems pipeline through Vergennes and other Addison County communities.
Aldermen in early November formally accepted a petition from resident Jeff Margolis that calls for that citywide vote on whether Vergennes residents back or oppose the council’s pipeline support.
