BRISTOL — Citing increasing job commitments and the long winter basketball season, Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ basketball coach Mike Estey has decided to step down after three seasons.

Estey’s tenure was not marked by great win-loss records, but Mount Abe Co-Athletic Director Jeff Stetson said the results were largely beyond the coach’s control.

Stetson called Estey’s work successful in other regards.

By Martha Hill



I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful community for the years of support to the Back-to-School Shop. For 12 years this project supplied low-income families with children in grades K-9 with needed school supplies in a “shop” format in Middlebury, Vergennes and Bristol during two days before the beginning of the school year.

Opinion: Solar array a better choice than fracking for energy

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Frank Farnsworth



I was raised in rural upstate New York and saw some of the problems that comewith fracking. As a result, I have a great appreciation for alternative, clean, renewable power, like solar power.

I’m not an engineer, but I try to see and think about what’s going onaround me. With fracking, the water being used is 4,000 feet down, but isn’t it still part of the hydraulic cycle? Someday it’ll be up here with our regular drinking water.

For 105 years, the Boy Scouts of America has played an important and significant role in shaping the lives of its youth members by instilling in them the values found in the Scout Oath and Law. For those readers who are unfamiliar with the Oath and Law, please read on:

Scout Oath: On my Honor, I will do my best, to do my Duty, to God and my Country; To obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Editorial: Governor's race gets interesting

Posted on September 4, 2015 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



What’s common about Democrat Matt Dunne and Republican Bruce Lisman entering the Vermont gubernatorial race this week is both candidates are portraying themselves as outsiders with national business experience and outside-the-box political perspectives. Both will also face well-respected, long-time legislative leaders.

From that snapshot, it’s a race pitting political experience against an outsider’s perspective; and to fit in with the popular narrative, they are the anti-establishment candidates bringing new solutions to fix a failed system.

New Haven wrestles with tax impact of power project

Posted on September 3, 2015 |
By Gaen Murphree



NEW HAVEN — Some residents and elected officials are looking for answers to some basic questions from Anbaric Transmission about the company’s proposal to build a converter station at the New Haven VELCO substation to connect a 400 megawatt power line to the New England electric power grid.

The need for answers is particularly acute in a town that, in the words of a resident at an informational meeting last week, increasingly feels “like a dumping ground” for energy projects.

City alderman, prominent veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein to leave state for Oregon job

Posted on September 3, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



klopfenstein, joe.jpg

VERGENNES — Vergennes alderman and well-known area large-animal veterinarian Joe Klopfenstein will later this fall pull up his Vermont stakes after 30 years and leave for a teaching job with Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Klopfenstein, as much a fixture on the Vergennes musical scene as on the 33 dairy farms he serves with his veterinary partner, Annie Murphy, said he was made an offer that was too good to refuse — in part because he and his wife Nancy’s two sons both live in Oregon.
