FERRISBURGH — When Erik Andrus began milling his own flour, the Ferrisburgh farmer and baker noticed a sharp spike in his electricity bill.

His mill — imported from Europe, and one of the most energy efficient models available — was running for 12 and sometimes 16 hours a day, grinding the wheat that would soon be turned into bread. The electricity bill at Boundbrook Farm and the Good Companion Bakery jumped as much as 50 percent.

Posted on May 3, 2010 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central Supervisory Union (ACSU) board on Wednesday agreed to hire a mediator to help resolve some perceived problems with the working environment in the school district’s central office.

That action — taken following a lengthy executive session — comes after a consultant performed a “climate study” within the ACSU office, an undertaking the district board commissioned in February in response to reports of discord between some of the district’s employees.

BRISTOL — The Bristol selectboard on Monday, April 26, awarded the contract for the renovation of Holley Hall to Brandon-based Naylor & Breen Builders, who came in with the low bid for the project at $614,000.

Bristol voters approved the town to borrow up to $750,000 for the repairs in a December bond vote. The repairs will make the building more handicap accessible, fix structural and wiring problems, add insulation and reorganize the basement town offices.

Bridport school budget revote set

Posted on May 3, 2010 |
By John Flowers



BRIDPORT — Bridport residents will return to the polls this Tuesday, May 4, to cast votes on a proposed 2010-2011 elementary school budget that is $6,158 leaner than the spending plan that was defeated by less than 10 votes on Town Meeting Day.

Voters rejected the original spending plan of $1,336,975 by a 179-172 tally. It proved to be one of the few school budget defeats in the state but was the second year in a row that Bridport residents had rejected their elementary spending plan.

Posted on May 3, 2010 |
By Emerson K. Lynn



This is the year when the heirs of the super rich bought sky-diving lessons for dad, fed him prime rib twice a day and told him, “What the heck, a third martini can’t hurt. You only live once.”

VERGENNES — On Saturday in Vergennes, the first-ever varsity lacrosse game between Mount Abraham and Vergennes union high schools went to the first-year Eagle program, 9-6, over the third-year Commodore team.

The surprising Eagles improved to 3-3 with their second win in 24 hours — they defeated Milton on Friday, 4-2. 

Senior long-stick middie Bela Dobkowski, part of a Mount Abe defense that has teamed with senior goalie Craig Camara to allow just 6.3 goals per game, said the Eagles are gaining confidence.

BRISTOL — A Bristol couple looking to revitalize a Main Street business is overhauling Reed’s Auto Supply and hoping to draw customers to Bristol’s downtown.

The new Forand’s Auto Supply, owned by husband-and-wife team Cathleen and Eric Forand, opened in March. For the Forands, purchasing the store previously owned by Mike Reed offered the chance to work close to home, realize their dream of owning a small business, and improve a longstanding storefront on Bristol’s main drag.
