Posted on August 8, 2016 |
By Gaen Murphree

ADDISON — Ethan Gevry is scratching a big tan and pink hog behind the ears — one of the more than 800 or so grunting, squealing, snoozing, eating porkers being raised in the barn Gevry’s outfitted for his hog operation in Addison.

“I like pigs, and I love farming,” says Gevry.

Opinion: Lawmaker prompted safety upgrade

Posted on August 8, 2016 |
By Norman Scheer



I want to bring to your attention to how Dave Sharpe, our local state representative, interceded with the Vermont State Parks Division to rectify safety issues at the Kingsland Bay State Park regarding the single ladder off the swim pier that barely reached the water and the pier approach path that had been surfaced with “crushed stone.”

He promptly followed up on my email, which I had sent directly to the State Parks contact center, and secured the support of Commissioner Snyder.
