MIDDLEBURY — Addison County businesses, institutions and individuals could play a larger role in donating food to low-income residents if there were more storage space, transportation options and publicity about the need for such contributions, according to a recent study of the local food system completed by a group of Middlebury College students.

The report, which will soon be delivered to the Addison County Hunger Council, also hints at a potential upcoming spike in food donations due to Vermont’s Act 148.

MIDDLEBURY — Stewards of Middlebury’s Memorial Sports Center have embarked on a new fund drive that would result in the long-awaited completion of the second floor of the 24-year-old community recreational facility that has served as the much-used home for Addison County ice hockey programs.

Specifically, boosters of the Memorial Sports Center, or MSC, want to raise $350,000 for a project that would, among other things, create a heated viewing area, elevator access and public restrooms for the top floor of the sports center.

Broadway Direct taps a dozen years in Vergennes

There’s nothing quite like a Broadway show. They are simply magical.

If you’ve never been, picture this: As the sun sets, Broadway lights up. The strip is radiant with lights bounce off the theater signs, reflecting on buildings and damp city streets. People bustle down the sidewalks, others hop out of double-parked cabs, scurrying out of the chilly city air and into ornate theaters. Once seats are taken, the actors are ready, the orchestra is tuned and sets are in place, the velvet curtains go up on show after show.

Homeless facing wage shortfall: Most work, but high cost of shelter, child care challenging

Posted on November 30, 2017 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — It’s easy to assume the typical homeless person is unemployed and therefore unable to afford a roof and four walls.

The reality in Addison County is far different.

Almost all the temporary inhabitants of the John Graham Emergency shelter in Vergennes are employed, but are simply not earning enough to land one of the few vacant apartments in our area, according to local advocates.

ADDISON COUNTY — Area deer hunters enjoyed the second-best rifle deer season since 2005, bringing 554 bucks to Addison County weigh stations during the 16-day season that ran Nov. 11 to 26.

That total of deer taken came just 19 short of 2016’s total of 573, the highest since Vermont wildlife officials in 2005 banned the taking of spikehorn bucks during November’s rifle season, the most popular of the state’s deer hunting seasons.

SHOREHAM — Two decades ago, Ray Gauthier and his family were in the market for a Christmas tree. They had plenty of options, but elected to visit the Red Sled Christmas Tree Farm on Route 74 West in Shoreham.

So they did. Again and again.

VERGENNES — At just three weeks old, tiny Hunter holds the distinction of being the youngest resident of the John W. Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes.

He doesn’t realize he and his 28-year-old mom, Sammie, don’t have a home of their own.

But Sammie plans to change all that, and she’s getting a big lift from John Graham Housing & Services (JGHS), the nonprofit that runs the Vergennes shelter and five multi-unit apartment buildings in the county.
